The difficulty created by the " raiders " of Canada

seems likely to produce good. Mr. Lincoln has recalled the imprudent order issued by General Dix ordering troops to continue pursuit beyond the frontier, and the Canadian Government and people have acted with unusual energy. The volunteers have been called out to guard the frontier and arrest all desperadoes, and the call has met with an eager response, the companies stepping forward all to- gether. Special commissioners, moreover, have been sent to the frontier, attended by mounted police, and so great is the excite- ment in the colony that many of the newspapers are crying out for the expulsion of those who abuse hospitality so grievously. The total result will probably be a renewal of friendly feeling between Canada and the North.
