An inspection of the map will show that there is scarce a section of it without its streams, from the running brook up to the navigable river.
Halaman 29 - India had assumed a most threatening aspect, and in conseqeuce, the attention of her Majesty's Government was very much occupied with matters of a more imminent nature. " We proceeded, however, to communicate as well with the Secretary of State for the Colonies, as with Lord Palmerston, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Secretary of State for War, and other members of her Majesty's Government, and explained verbally and at length our views on the subject of our mission.

Halaman 22 - Treasury, on conditions which I will now proceed to state. In the first place, as Her Majesty's Government are of opinion that they would not be justified in asking Parliament to allow the credit of this country to be pledged for any object not of great importance to the British Empire as a whole, (and they do not consider that the projected Railway would answer this description unless it should establish a line of communication between the three British Provinces), it must be distinctly understood...

Halaman 10 - The lakes of New- Brunswick are numerous and most beautiful ; its surface is undulating, hill and dale, varying up to mountain and valley. It is everywhere, except a few peaks of the highest mountains, covered with a dense forest of the finest growth.
Halaman 74 - Allow me also to beg of you to put down the proportions in which you think the thirty members of the representative Assembly ought to be furnished by each province ; and, finally, to suggest whether you would not think two Lieutenant Governors, with two Executive Councils, sufficient for the Executive Government of the whole, viz. one for the two Canadas and one for Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, comprehending the small dependencies of Cape Breton and Prince Edward's Island ; the former to reside...
Halaman 22 - ... nor is any part of the loan — for the interest on which the British treasury is to be responsible — to be raised, until arrangements are made with the provinces of Canada and New Brunswick, by which the construction of a line of railway passing wholly through British territory, from Halifax to Quebec or Montreal shall be provided for to the satisfaction of Her Majesty's government. "In order that such arrangements may be made, Her Majesty's government will undertake to recommend to parliament...
Halaman 8 - If this opinion be correct, the formation of a railroad from Halifax to Quebec would entirely alter some of the distinguishing characteristics of the Canadas. Instead of being shut out from all direct intercourse with England during half the year, they would possess a far more certain and speedy communication throughout the winter than they now possess in summer.
Halaman 74 - ... ask you whether it was not an oversight in you, to state that there are five Houses of Assembly in the British Colonies in North America. If I am not under an error there are six, viz : — Upper and Lower Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, the Islands of Prince Edward and Cape Breton. Allow me to beg of you to put down the proportions in which you think the thirty members of the Representative Assembly ought to be furnished by each Province, and finally to suggest whether you would not think...
