It is to be hoped that the politic*} preepeet in India Is not so e^rioa* e* it seems. First, we have the movement toward Afahanirtsn.

These native armies are very considerable in numbers, and tot altogether despicable as soldiery. To have to choose either to disband their forces, or to band them over to British rule, will be a hard trial for these feud stories. Again, we may be »ore ithat some pressing dsnger is known, or such seriou* trouble ea this shadows forth would bsrdly ^ have been invited.

Turn aspirations o! Italy after Austrian territory now are as absurd as her pretenrons to independence were reasonsble. Thirty years ago her friends could point to a famous snd historic laud parcelled out among princes who were either Austrian police agents, or represented dynasties imposed upon the country without its children .being consulted in the matter. To these rulers there were latterly two exceptions, the kingdom of Sardinia whose prince had some aspirations beyond obtaining the approbation of the Court o! Vienna, and the Pspicy, whose chiet as the head of the Roman Catholic Church, attracted to Italy many visiters who did not come merely to plunder her and go away. Still the Popes had been so accuttomed (thanks to the Napoleonic usurpation) to rely upon the Court of Vienna for support against their discontented subjects, that the Papacy ijremed likely to become something as little independent as the small principality which lies between the Austrian Empire and Switzerland. We mean Liechtenstein, whose sugust rulers are proud to be Austrian generals and statesmen. Against soch sn Italy a* existed when 1858 commenced we can well under*tsnd all generous nature* revolting. But Louis Nspoleon, Csvour. and latterly Bismarck, gave Italy to herself, and convened the Princes of Piedmont, Dukes of Savoy, Marquises of Montferret, &c-. &c^ into her kings. Doubtless a vest improvement in the political happiness of her children has been the result. Still •he i* wrong to fancy herself a great power, and seek to play the part in Southern Europe that Prussia bae so brilliantly performed in the North.

Wi believe one of the advanced Liberal fondest aspirations is that Mr. Gladttonc may be able (if be ever re-enters office) to cede Malta to Italy and Gibraltar to Spain. Whether be will supplement this by proposing to remove the English settlers from Australia, and restore that noble island to the shambling savages we found there we do not know. We are sure, however, that such a proceeding would before logic*!, and equally as reasonable as giving up the great Mediterranean araensls to people who#e claim is simply sentimental, and who, probably, would retain neithei post a year after they got possession. As it i not unlikely that we *hall bear a good deal more of this preposterous proposal, and a good msny similar ooea, it is worth while asking what are the claims of Italy and Spain to Malta and Gibraltar? Malta is popularly supposed to be at Italian island; but it is nearly as much ar African one. If contiguity proves anything. Iti population speaks a Semitic patois (either derived from the Csrthsginians or the Arab*) and are decidedly not Italian by race. Politically, of eoilMfe,' the kingdom of Italy has no better claim to Malta tbsn it baa to ,any other fragment of the Roman empire. The Italian pretensions ti it are, therefore, riraply impertinent dresmi which they would hardly dare to talk of wen Malta held by a re*o!ute power i like Germany. As for Gibraltar, it certainly standi on soil thi is a part of Spain—as Spain appears in the atli —but when we ask What b Spain ? the answ« does not go far to prove that Gibraltar Spanish. As far as length of possession is cor cerned, our.title is almost ss good as Spain's, has been English now over one hundred an sixty years. It had been Spanish but a litt more than two centuries, when Rooke seized i The Moors were expelled from Granada in 1492, and up to that time they held Gibraltar, and had held it ever since the Sarsceus conquered Spair in 712. So if length of pos*es«ion gives a titl< the Moor* of Barb*ry have a much better clair to the reversion of " Gib." than the Spaniardi In fact the notion that this or that nation has an better right to any.particular town or territor than its sctual possessors, is one of thi

We have long ceased to be among the mircr* of the Right Hon. William Ewart ( stone, believing hi* theories of politics,
home, and foreign, to be simply pernicious, did biro, however, the injustice to suppi*e that he loved and honoured his country, snd would have served her in hi* own perverse fashion. Thi*, however, was a mistake on our part. Mr. Glsd-stone is evidently but little pround of his < try, and as little does he value her esteem. Still we should have thought the respect of the majority of Englishmen better worth having than the handful of dollars he received from the American publishers for bis miserable article, . recently published in the NorOi American Review. An article such as we should have expected from some second-rate lecturer or professor on his travels, men ready for any dirty work to pay their travelling expenses. One, however, quite unworthy of a man who has held his head high among English statesmen. Let our country be going to the dogs as fast as the may. it it not for an Englishman to lend her a shove on the road, as Mr Gladstone has meanly endeavoured to do. Could anything be baser ? To rake together all that he thinks are sign* of his country's decrepitude, and string his dirty libels together to curry favour with her rivals !
Tux notion that the United States' Government propose by a Customs Union to virtually add British North America to their own system will be received now-a-days in a very different mannei the way in which such a proposition would hi been greeted a generation since. Then we should (and rightly) have treated such a proposal as impudent jest, or next thing to a declaration war. Now, we believe, most Englishmen will . simply Inquire what are the views of the Canadians on the subject. If they desire such a union we ihall trouble ourselves no further. If they are fairly unanimous against it, we certainly shall use our best efforts to prevent their forcible annexation to the Great Republic. For it is plainly evident that a Customs Union will be so close an approach to political confederation that it would be both unwise and undignified for us to keep up the affectation of the Dominion being in any sense (except a historical one) a British colony vxyAwpr- That the whole continent of North Amtc£a (less Mexico) will become one mighty English-speaking republic is, of course, just the text on which the Radical roosters will crow themselves hoarse. Possibly, however, the sum of human happiness wQl not be diminished if Canada hss the sense to avoid this dangerous partnership for some time to come.

if Spain. Most hi write as if the holding of Spain by the Moors was something in ii*elf immoral, and all our sympathies are invited for the Christian Princes who wsged incessant war until the Crescent was driven from the Peninsula. Now what made their title better than that of the Moors ? They were not the aborigines. Who they (the aborigines) were we do not know. Probably they were not the people conquered by the Romans. The Visigoths, whom the Moors conquered, had not been in Spain more than three centuries when the crime of Roderic brought ruin on their rule. All over Europe history tells us the same story of conquest fol lowing conquest. We English are intruders in Britain, and the Celts who preceded us we have every reason to believe found men whom they displaced. The very name of Prance is a memorial of the Prankish conquest of Gaul, As we have shown, the present dwellers in Spsin have no better title than possession, which commenced in war and rapine.
