The state of affairs in Canada is by no means
satisfactory. There appears to be a strong party desirous of severing their connexion with the mother country. A paper called the Upper Canada Courant, received by the last arrivals, speaks this language plainly enough in the following paragraph.
" The minds of all the well-affected people in the country (and they, to the certain ultimate discomfiture of the united factions of Mackenzie, Goderich, and the Yankee Methodists, are a vast majority) begin to be unhinged. Instead of dwelling with delight and confidence upon their connexion with the glorious empire of their sires, with a determination to support that connexion, as many of them have already supported it, with their fortunes or their blood, their af- fectiohs are already more than half alienated from the Government of that country; and in the apprehension that the same insulting and degrading course el policy towards them is likely to continue, they already begin to ' cast about' in their mind's eye 'for some new state of political existence which shall (free- *sally put the Colony beyond the reach of injury and insultfrom any and every ignoramus whom the political lottery of the day may chance to elevate to the Chair of the Colonial Office."
The writer of this article is evidently a warm partisan on the Anti-British side of the question ; but we suspect that there is some reason in the complaint of the frequent change of their Governors in this country. The latter measures of Lord GODERICH, we believe, gave general satisfaction; but it seems doubtful whether Mr. STANLEY will continue the same line of policy. For instance, be has appointed Mr. BOULT014, who was dismissed from the office of Attorney-General of Upper Canada, for his disobe- .dience of orders nod insulting behaviour to Lord GonEition, to be Chief Justice orNeWfoundland, and presented him to the King in that character at.tlie last Levee. Messrs. HAGERMAN and STUART,
who were likewise dismissed by Lord GODERICH, are, as we are credibly informed, soon to have places. This want of consistency and uniformity in the plans of the Government in the Mother Country, cannot but produce very bad effects in Canada, among a people somewhat disposed to be turbulent, and very sharp-sighted.
