Tub Standard enjoys a capital reputation for the excellence of its foreign correspondence, which n not only extremely well writt«i,-but remarkable for its outspoken criticism\orofficial misdoings. This was well exhibited lately in tbe way in which they directed attention to certain blunders in Cyprus by which unnecessary exposure was en-dured by both officers and men. At the same time that we thank tbe Standard for the good service it did in this direction, we cannot help thinking that many of tbe slips of officials there and elsewhere in our Army and Navy arise from causes that could hardly be foreseen in the burr] of events. We have no with that the Pres.-should relax its vigilance, or that the actual faults ol the official world should be condoned, bui no good can come from treating errors of judgment as crimes, or fancying that our nations service is worse conducted than that of othei nations. Since the Crimesn war, when tht British system was so cruelly tried, and jta conductors so fiercely assailed, the world (lias seer many and terrible contests. All the great nstioni have been engaged in war, and—save by Germany—it is no exaggeration to say that in thes< various wars blunders have been committed tc which the faults of the Crime"n administration were trifles —inconceivably stupid m# some of our blunders were. It is worth while remembering how thoroughly the Austrian military system collapsed in its two great wars—first with France in lf58, and afterwards with Germany, in 1866. Yet, reading the Setters from Vienna during the winter 1854-'55, one would have imagined that Austrian military men were incapab.'oot mistakes, and models ol forethought and capacity. As to France, all the world believed that her " system " was perfection. What it re .illy was, the world now knows well. Russia, too, has been supposed to have organised the study of the science of war. if she was behind Europe ia'other matters ; and yet Iriend and foe are pretty well agreed that last year's campaign was but a succession of blunders and mismanagement, and that final success was due to other causes than the military capacity of her Generals. The citizens of the United States are probably thfc most cunning of mankind, and yet the conduct of the war against the South was but one long record pf incapacity in the field, and of corruption in the supply and administration of their armies. The lesson we draw* lrom all this is—not that we should abate in vigilance, or be content to take tbe official class at their own valuation ; but that, as tbe Duke of Wellington said, that war is a succession of That is to say that no war runs ex-
Iree trade inland, and the,customs collected the aeahoArd divided on the twek of population and estimated consumption. This would practically mean In tbe present cms, an extension u Canada of th4 intensely protective system of th< United States. The result being, we should apprehend that while a few persons in Canada might gain by some branches of their inland commerce being freed, the majority of tbe Canadians would find themselves much worse off by accepting such an alliance. .We write thii from a dispassionate view of the fiscal aspect of the question. Politically, we think a good many persons, both in Canada and at home, would hesitate before they accepted so significant change. For the result of such a customs' uni in America would probably be the same as t outcome of the famed ZoUverein in Germsn which has ended in making its formerly ind pendent members a portion of tbe Prussian
Tnsai is something shocking in the irony fate. The dream of Germany was unity—it has come—and power with if, beyond her wildest hopes. Her ancient foe has been stricken to her feet, and France's place in the estimation of the world is now filled by Germany. She is tht guiding spirit of European politics, snd men ask as anxiously after her wishes and intentions at they once did after those of her mighty rival She has power, but certainly not peace. To retain tbe provinces and the prestige she has torn from France, she must be ever on guard, and the constant weight of arms makes even her wi riors grow weary. Nor have the bold prim and wise councillors who led hex to victory gained much by Serving her so well. The aged Emperor is attacked as if he were some tyrant, and Bismarck can hardly venture the streets of the city his astnumcss has m» famous I So Germany, united and powerful, curses the men who guided her to victory ; and France, beaten and plundered, prospers and smiles at her conquerors 1

i. — It is now forty years and a nee English attention was seriously concerned in the politics ol this border State. We fancy that during the next year or so its name will again hold a prominent place in our political disquisitions, or the signs of the times deceive us. Russian intrigue is, and has been, busy there—the Afghan Princes are taught to believe that England is a more dangerous neighbour than she really is, and much less able to take care of her own possessions than they will some day find is the ease. A nation of warrior mountaineers, the Afghans regard the people of the plains of Hindostan as their natural prey, and regard tbe English with as much affection as a wolf feels lor the mastiff, whose strong jaws keep him (the wolf) away from the succulent mutton he loves so well. It should be remembered, in considering the political situation, tbi when we interfered in the dynastic squabbles of these turbulent people, the Sikh State was an independent and a powerful one, and It was by the grace of the then ruler of the Tunjaub—the famous Runjeet Singh—that we were able march across the Indus, and assail the Afgbi empire. Now the Sikh Sta.'e is as much under our " Raj " as Bengal itself and the Sikhs are among the most loyal of our soldiery. Very probably Russia does not propose or expect any serious mischief to England from the efforts of Sbere All and his slack-drilled, half-armed forces. With her usual cool cunning, she will counsel mfcTadeo to him and his, but what she will certainly do will be to keep the Albans in that stale ol constant menace towards ourselves that we shall have to endure a perpetual and dangerous irritation, or else have to take the initiative, and attack them ampng their hills. No doubt, in some shape or other, Russian agent* will be busy on tbe plains, but it is in the power of tbe Indian government—or should be—to make this line of business extremely uncomfortable for the persons who un-
