conception of this great British dependency was for a long time a very peculiar one. It was a current belief that this territory, which now presents one of the finest fields for colonization within the British dominions, was a vast unexplored region covered with forests of gloomy pine, and wrapped for more than half the year in a mantle of frozen snow. This period of profound ignorance and prejudice has long passed away; but the great advantages which Canada offers to the emigrant must still be but imperfectly known, or how is the fact to be accounted for that during the season of 1859 there arrived in Canada, as settlers, not more than 6000 persons speaking the English language, while in the same season the United States received more than 45,000 natives of the United Kingdom as an increase to their industrial population? The comparative neglect of Canada can only be attributed to an absence of correct inforination.

The recent visit of the heir of the British Crown to several of the noblest portions of his future empire, has not been without its influence in England. It has awakened interest, excited curiosity, and diffused information. The great ovation with which the representative of the British monarchy and the British nation has been greeted is an honourable acknowledgment of the obligations which the people of British North America owe to the land from which they derive their freedom, and to which they are indebted for much of their political importance and no inconsiderable amount of their prosperity.

The possession of Canadla by Great Britain dates from the year 1759 : the formal cession of the province by France was one of the stipulations of the treaty of Paris in 1763. The extent of territory which France once possessed in the North-American continent, and the lofty flight of her ambition in the New World, are now but saint traditions. Ilow many are aware that the region lying at the back of the thirteen original United States, from the nouth of the St. Lawrence to the mouth of the Mississippi, comprising the whole of Canada and the vast and fertile valley of the Ohio, was once possessed and partially colonized by France, and that she actually occupied the two outlets of this inmense territory by means of the ports of Quebec and New Orleans? That portion of French territory which now forms the British colony of Canada, was, up to 1720, monopolized by a comnercial company; but after the failure of the notorious Mississippi scheme, the action of the French government upon its North-American provinces became more direct. The first settlers in Canada left their country generally, not in any spirit of discontent, but under the pressure of pant, and in blind obedience to the orders of their Govern
