Ws believe that California has Its law of libel, lilce other civilised communities, but it can certainly hardly possess the stringency of our legislation on the subject. Not long ago a cer •team boat company trading between Pam and St. Francisco, lost a steamboat under circumstances (or alleged circutnslances) lhat made their misfortune somewhat unaccountable. The night was fine, and the sea calm, when the Georgia ran upon a reef some score of miles out of her course. That the captain was alleged to be intoxicated at the time docs not seem so very surprising—such allegations being pretty regit-larly made on such occasions. Looking at what men and manriers are like in the West, it is just possible, however, that the passengers were right who found a spirituous reason for the captain's odd behaviour when their misfortune occurred. This, however, is a trifle to what follows on in the columns oi the remarkably out-spoken journat to. wjiich we are indebted lor the details of the ca-" t&strophe. They allege, with very little circumlocution, that the wreck was no accident at all. They assert that, the company has had many similar misfortunes. They say that, as a rule, the ships are always wrecked in fine weather-certainly just when they might seem safest. They also allege that the captains are never punished, but all these wrecks are treated as quite un-'oidable, arid the commanding officers retained the company's service. Nor do they mince matters about the motive for such strange proceedings. In nearly as plain terms as we ore using now, they assert th* vessels are insured in foreign insurance companies, and arc wrecked to rob them I Of course all this is the ex parte statement of the Amdo* Oroatck. and may be the very reverse of the truth. Our own South-smpton experience tells us that vessels are wrecked—and often wrecked—when they should be sale enough, and yet captains are quite sober, and the companies, the vessels' owners, are terrible losers by their loss. Unluckily, America has such a reputation for smartness, and the right or wrong of things seems so often with our cousins, based on success or failure, than one can hardly be expected to judge them by the same measure as we should other people. Still, looking at the matter all round, we are inclined to believe the company innocent, and the newspaper mo

ENGLAND has invaded Afghanistan with whose total numbers are little more than those of one army corps on the continental model, and according to the prudent theories of their strategists, we simply invite disaster by the reckless disregard of the rules they hold so important. Englishmen, however, who are but tolerably well acquainted with the history of their.country. and especially the history of Indian conquest, know that our greatest results have been obtained with forces that seemed ludicrously disproportionate to the end in view. According to that charming phase of Liberalism that makes faith -n one's country seem to the Radical mind so mean and paltry a thing, we suppose we ought to be ashamed of this, but we confcss we are old-fashioned enough to feel a pride in the deeds British heroes have accomplished in spite .of adverse circumstances. One thin* is certain, that history records but few instances of victories being achieved by forces so dlaproportioned to their antagonists as those which English conquests have again and again been accomplished with. The Spaniah Conquettadoret led, it is true, oere handfuls of men against the mighty hosts f the Mexican and Peruvian kings; but the Spaniards bad horses anl fire-arms, of both of which their enemies were destitute, and so the Castilian caballeroa seemed as gods to their puny antagonists. But on the plains of Hindostan a mere handful of Englishmen has more than once defeated armies almost countless in number, well armed, and fairly disciplined.
Foa the very reason that the gentlemen who desire a showy Town-hall, object to the Audit-house site, we recommend it to the ratepayers. It can only have one front—a building in the Houndwell would have four, and every visible side means the addition of so much money to the bill we shall have to pay for it. If an anonymous architect could be found, we expect ten or twelve thousand pounds would give us all we want. But this, unhappily, is not the case, the gentlemen who send in plans have fame and glory to consider. There probably is not one man of genius among the architects of this country; they dsre not trust to utility, but must hide their poverty of invention behind meretricious embellishments, such as the men of the middle ages would'have despised. Their dames have sunk into oblivion, but their work will be famous for ever.
