HaiitJ #uartJwn, Friday, 1 Qth October, 1855. THE NEW CONSTITUTION AND COLONIAL PARTIES. The prospect of the speedy arrival of our " New Constitution" has produced a more than usual earnestness in contesting' the choice of Representatives for the seats be coming' vacant in the Legislative Council. • In the Imperial Parliament the passing- of the Act was not productive of the customary logomachy. It was hurried through Com mittee in an off-hand manner, curiously illustrative of the feeling thatthese Colonies -are of small importance in the estimation of the House. A portion of an evening sufficed to pass throe Colonial Bills of great importance. The claims of the Colonies in reference to their constitution are based on five points," vizThe rig-lit of dis-. tributing- Colonial patronage. The appro priation of the Local Customs' Revenues. The contol of the civil list. The control and disposal of the waste lands, (this did hot seem to deserve even a passing remark.) " And the rig-lit of...

The offer was accepted, and the ship's boats entered the .'Bay, of Kertch, with the vehicle,on board, sounding- as they went! By this means it was ascertained that there was a passage for the small steamers to within a short distance of the coast, and the Governor's c...

'I go, thou sad enquirer, As list the winds to blow, Sear, sapless, lost, And tempest-tost, I go where all things go. The rude winds bear me onward As suiteth them, not me, O'er dale, o'er hill, Through good through ill, As destiny bears thee. 'What though for me one summer, And threescore for thy breath— I live my span, Thou thine, poor man! And then adown to death? ■ And thus we go together; For lofty as thy lot, And lowly mine, My fate is thine, , To die and be forgot!' ■■
