The friends of the Columbia Mission will excuse the delay in
bringing out this Report-when they find it contains extracts from
a journal of the Bishop's voyage from England to his diocese, for
tidings of whose arrival it was thought advisable to wait.
The Balance-sheet shows the contributions for the year ending
December 31, 1864, to have reached 7,610/. lis. 7d. being an increase of 833/. lis. Od over those of 1863, which were 6,777/. Os. Id.
The home expenses have amounted to 555/. 2s. 2d. Of the sum
drawn out during 1864 for the use of the Mission in the Colony
a portion has been invested on the spot.
Considering the amount raised in 1863 and 1864, the results
of the special appeal may be regarded as so far satisfactory that
the Mission has been thereby saved from failure. The Bishop of
Columbia during his extended labour in England, involving
sermons and meetings 401 times, had constantly before him the
question, " Is this mission, so well begun, now to fail from want
of funds, or is it through Cod's blessing to go on and minister
the Cospel of Salvation to the lost souls of men ?" A persuasion,
that the latter alternative must only be entertained, urged him
resolutely to persevere, though at the cost several times of succumbing to ill health, until the help of many friends relieved
the Mission from anxiety. He went back, however, with the
conviction that, though he had succeeded in the object of his
visit, the clergy must be reduced rather than increased in number.
The unsettled condition of the white population has made it
impossible to obtain stated support for the clergy except in a few
instances, while mission work amongst the heathen Indians
must be borne entirely from without. Yet it is greatly to be
desired,that so fine a portion of British North America should
not be neglected in its best and highest interests, but well sown
A2 r
in its early day with the precious seed of the Gospel, and that?
the foundation of Christ's Church should be soundly laid.
Ere long this Western Province will be intimately connected
with the intermediate and Atlantic colonies in one great British
Already is telegraphic communication established with the
Atlantic. The first message through to New Westminster by
the wire of 3,000 miles told British Columbians of the murder of
President Lincoln.
Greatly as such a deed must be reprobated, it did not fail to
make each British colonist thankful for the order, security, peace,
and contentment of the British Empire. Those, who know by
experience of other lands how great is the contrast, cannot too
often repeat the statement, that England owes largely the stability
and freedom of the country to her sound Christianity and her
To reproduce the blessings she enjoys in an important province of the empire is a work worthy the support of the Christian
and the patriot.
Let us of the mother-land not refuse our offerings and our
prayers to sustain the holy enterprise of the Bishop, clergy and
faithful of the Church in British Columbia and Vancouver.
January 17,1865.—"We sailed from Southampton about two, several
kind friends having come to bid us farewell. The splendid steam-ship
Shannon was to be our home for a fortnight.
January 19, 20, 21.—Severe gale and heavy sea. The ocean waves
mountains high.    Most people sick.
Sunday, January 22.—Performed service. Could not have a second
owing to the increasing gale.    Ship obliged to slacken speed.
Sunday, January 29—Weather now warm. Thermometer 75°. A
good attendance at both services.
Monday, January 30.—Entered the tropics. Our rate of speed
about 300 miles a day.
February 2.—We arrived off St. Thomas over night, and at daylight
steamed into the bay.    The morning was cool and bright, and the gay
TTT" ^
town, perched along the amphitheatre-like heights, looked particularly pleasing and beautiful. The town has a Continental appearance, with red roofs and variously-painted walls, interspersed with
green trees. On a nearer approach, an Oriental character mixed in
with Danish neatness and taste. The Rev. Mr. Roach came off for
us; we crossed the bay to the quay, the air being pleasant (although
the sun was hot, it being half-past ten), through a breeze which kept
all in motion. The population are chiefly African and coloured descendants of slaves, and our boatmen, with black faces and woolly heads,
landed us amidst a crowd like themselves.
We now passed up through a fine of cocoa-nut palms, and other
tropical verdure. Men in white linen, and women attired in gaudy
colours, met us, and eyed us with considerable curiosity. Now and
then a member of the Saxon family, with more resolute brow and sunburnt countenance, accosted our hospitable guide.
Mr. Roach brought us to the parsonage, where we found his amiable
wife and family. The youngest child I had baptized in 1859. We
had some refreshment, and then visited the church and school. The
church, where I held a confirmation in 1859, is a building capable of
holding 800 people; it is any and suitable for the climate, and is built
substantially of stone. The Christmas decorations had just been removed, the cinnamon-leaf being a chief ornament. Mr. Roach has been
a faithful and successful clergyman, held in high estimation, and doing
a good work. He has 700 communicants, and the church is too small
for his congregation. Before the monthly communion he has a lecture
in the school-room. We visited the school, in which were seventy
children of various ages; with one exception, they were all black and
coloured. They sang pleasingly, and were quick to answer when I
questioned them. I addressed them. The master, a coloured young
man, seemed intelligent.    He gets 48/. a year.
The Danish Governor is a Mr. Rhoter, a gentlemen of property in
Santaburg, a neighbouring island belonging to the same nationality.
Mrs. Rhoter very kindly sent her carriage and pair of grey ponies to
be at our service. Our first drive was to Government House, where
we found Mrs. Rhoter in the midst of her letters, just received from
Europe by our steamer. Mr. Rhoter was not at home. She received
us with much kindness and urbanity. She is highly intelligent and
cultivated. She had been in the West Indies for twenty-five years.
She had come on her marriage, and had kept a few days since her
silver wedding. For several years at a time, however, she had been
in Europe, and her brother had been attached to the Embassy in
London. She speaks English well, and has that cast of character,
sincere and solid together, with feature and complexion which makes
us feel the Danes to be of the same family with ourselves. Her feeling, however, was sore at this time against the English. She had
lately returned from Europe, where she said she had much sorrow) it 6
was caused by the war with the Germans, in which she considered the
English as much unfriendly as the latter. She could not conceive how
we could go to war for the Turks, and not come to the help of Danish
Christians; or how we could allow a Prussian fleet to get up into the
Mrs. Rhoter had been in Denmark during the visit of the Prince
and Princess. She had been for a few days foster-mother to the latter,
and knew her intimately. The Prince, she said, pleased everybody.
It had been thought he was heavy, judging from his portrait; but all
he said and did was done with so much tact, and grace, and kindness,
that he far outshone his more brilliant brother-in-law, the Czarowitz,
who was also at the Danish Court the same time. We passed an
agreeable visit. Refreshment was brought in—grapes, wine, and beer.
She expressed her great regret we could not stay longer, and wished
we could have spent several days. Her carriage and horses were at our
service at all hours. We departed, charmed with her kindness said
Mrs. Roach accompanied my wife and myself in Mrs. Rhoter's pretty
carriage and greys. The way to Government House lay up an ascent
along the side of the hill and ravine upon which St. Thomas, with its
12,000 population, is built. On either side .was vegetation of the
tropics in full luxuriance to our eyes, though this is the dry season ;
as we ascended, views of charming beauty from time to time met the
eye. There was the town, romantically arranged, looking bright and
gay. The bay, with its shipping, lay before us in several views. The
heights above our heads presented picturesque irregularity, interspersed
here and there with a villa surrounded with its enclosure of pahns,
plantains, and Indian corn. We drove afterwards through the town
along the road past the cemetery and the Moravian establishment.
We were particularly pleased with, the vegetation; the hedges were
formed of various' species of cactus, some of which were .in blossom,
and about which the humming bird was sporting in its lively flight.
Trees of the ebony, cocoa-nut, and silk cotton shaded the road.
Oleanders, white and red, yellow trumpet flowers, floxes, acacias, and
mimosas, shed rich lustre and fragrance on the scene.
Besides these, we saw tamarinds, papa-fruit, oranges, limes, bananas,
grapes, and sugar-canes. There was a delightful breeze. The carriage
was shaded, and we certainly enjoyed the. drive exceedingly.
The population, some 12*000, are principally of African descent,
though the Government is Danish j yet a large proportion of the
people are British subjects, and English is the universal language.
There is an appearance of prosperity in the place, and it. is, I understand, well governed.
., Mrs. Rhoter regretted the Danish language was not more spoken^ JAQUEMEL,  SAN DOMINGO,  OR HAYTI.
and thought there had not been sufficient pains taken to this- effect.
It might be taught, she thought, in the schools. Her own clergyman
(Danish Church) had proposed to have service always in English ; he
has it once every Sunday : but this relinquishment of the national
language had been strictly resisted by the few Danish inhabitants.
Besides the Danish established Church, there are many Roman Catholics.
The Anglican Church is next in number, then come Presbyterian,
Dutch Reformed, and Moravian. A considerable number of Roman
Catholics have come over to the Anglican Church since Mr. Roach
has been there. The climate is hot, but is not considered unhealthy.
Mr. Roach and Ms family have been Well. Mrs. Rhoter speaks of
having got rid of several ailments. The only drawback to the
residence she says is, that it is not fatherland, and her three
children are away from her for their education ; this- is a cross to her,
and she sometimes wished she had twelve children, because out of so
many she might have the happiness of some being with her. We met
Mr. RhoteT before we left the quay. He is an excellent man, and a
good and intelligent Governor | the best they have had. He takes an
interest in schools and all higher schemes for improvement. Mrs. Rhoter
comes often to the Anglican Church, the services of which she prefers.
At half-past three Mr. and Mrs. Roach came off with us to the ship,
and at half-past five we were in the Solent, to wMch we had been
transferred from the Shannon on our way to Jamaica and Colon.
Saturday, February 4.—About three o'clock we reached Jacquemel,
having coasted for some hours along the island San Domingo, on which
it is situated. The steamer lay off about two miles, while three boats
with cargo and mails went to shore. Eor the fifty miles we had coasted
along, the island presented no aspect of cultivation or human habitation, but only a high mountainous region, covered with forest and
scrub. Captain Norman, Admiralty Agent, Colonel Nelson, and my
wife and myself went ashore in the mail boat. On landing, some
ragged soldiery demanded our passports, and we were allowed to pass
between two wretched black soldiers, whose bayonets crossed our
entrance, in tattered blue regimentals, with red epaulets and trimmings,; trousers of any sort, and remnants of shoe-leather tied to their
feet. They were not set up, and held their muskets any how. This
was a specimen of the black army of the Republic, once the Empire
of Hayti. At present the Spaniards are contending for the recovery
of this country, and expending blood and treasure for an hitherto
fruitless enterprise.
The town of Jacquemel contains 6,000 inhabitants, all of negro
origin. It was Saturday, and a good deal of life was exhibited in the
display of shops, and' in the market square. In the shops which, as
in the Eafet, were all open, was a varied assortment of the poorest
kind of Manchester goods, together with crockery, and such articles as
were suitable for the very poorest customer.
'The houses were mostly dilapidated, bearing traces of former prosperity.   The only exception to the poverty-stricken character of the 8 EXTRACTS FROM THE BISHOP OF COLUMBIA'S JOURNAL.
place was some substantial brick warehouses, in wMch was stowed
a large quantity of coffee, an important article of export. We saw
one carriage, Paris-built. We visited the Church (Roman Catholic),
which stands on a commanding spot in the Market Square; it is
only completed in shell, the outer walls, but not the roof or internal parts, being finished; the service was carried on in a
large wooden building, dark and dingy, wMch occupies the whole
interior of the shell of the future building. On the facade in front
are the words, " Deus Caritas est." It is said the works have for some
time been stopped, and there is no likelihood of this building being
ever completed The Island of San Domingo or Hayti is nearly 400
miles in length, with an average of 100 in breadth. The highland
tract of the interior is called the mountains of Cibao, the highest
summit of which is about 8,000 feet above the sea. It is said extensive and beautiful plains are situated between the ranges, which are
watered by fine rivers, with very fertile soiL There are dense forests
of mahogany, iron, and log-wood The population is between 600,000
and 700,000, mostly of negro origin. In the western part of the
Island, Jacquemel, a corrupted dialect of Erench is spoken, while on
the east side, the dialect is Spanish.
Since Hayti is become independent, its productions and exports have
largely fallen off. It previously was held by the Erench and Spaniards
jointly. It has been the constant scene of bloody revolution, and has
partaken of the blight which, sooner or later, settles upon Republican
countries, leading to loss and anarchy and every misery. Jacquemel
presents a type of this unhappy consequence. We spent about three-
quarters of an hour on shore, and brought away many pine-apples and
oranges, and a nosegay of oleanders; we gathered also wild flowers of
the flox kind.
Sunday, February 5.—We had changed our steamer at St. Thomas,
at which point the inter-colonial boats connect with the Southampton
steamers. We were now in the Solent, bound for Colon, and to day
were to reach Jamaica. On my asking about service to-day, our
captain said he was sorry there was too much to do in the ship to
allow of the men being mustered, they having to get ready to discharge
cargo at Kingston. He however consented to my holding service for
the passengers and servants. There were also about forty of one of
the West India Regiments. We had service on deck. There was a
good attendance. The sermon was from St. Matt. ii. 1—11. and
turned upon the duty of Christian Englishmen travelling far and wide,
to spread by their consistent lives at least the influence of Christian
Twenty-four hours from St. Domingo we reached Jamaica; for some
miles we coasted along the south side of the island, which presents an
undulating and elevated series of mountainous country, covered for the
most part with a Wild undergrowth, which has taken the place of
highly-cultivated sugar-plantations; here and there could be seen the . ARRIVAL—PORT ROYAL BAT—BLUNDELL HOUSE.     9
spacious residence of a planter, surrounded by fields of sugar-cane;
high up in the mountains were also residences, perched in salubrious
spots, reached by zig-zag roads; occasionally a collection of houses,
amounting to a town, were so placed. Nothing can exceed, I was told,
the beauty and healthiness of these spots, some 1,500 feet and upwards to 7,000 above the sea. The Bishop, the Governor, and other
principal inhabitants live in those elevated spots, where the thermometer indicates no more than the summer of a temperate climate; it
is said, the climate of the lower country is not now so unhealthy as it
used to be for Europeans.
Mr. Sawkins, the Government Surveyor of Jamaica, who was on
board, pointed out the extensive tracts that had gene out of cultivation
of late years. There was a difficulty in recovering these lands, because
the owners neither used them themselves, nor would allow others
to do so, and Government could not deal with them, though they
had become waste. One cause assigned for this state of things, is
the independence of the negro and coloured population. It is said the
freed negro is idle. Doubtless there may be a reaction of indolence
from a state of compulsory servitude; but there are very many industrious blacks.
Mr. Sawkins spoke favourably of the blacks, as being in a transition
state. He instanced a man who sometimes worked for Mm, who could
obtain a sufficiency for his family, and who laid by one shilling a
month for the Church, and threepence a week for education, without
working for others continually. Another case was a man who, having
shown him a road, afterwards said, "Now I will show you a shorter
road than this usual and public one," and he took him through a
little farm of his own, where was raised considerably more than what
he required for the support of his family; this man had never worked
for any one but himself. Then it is to be remembered that the wants
of the people are few. The clothing they require is little or none;
cocoa-nuts and bananas suffice for food.
We reached Port Royal Bay, seven miles from Kingston, as the sun
went down. The Health Officer came off; also, men-of-war's boats,
for despatches and letters. The Aboukir, the Shannon, and the Rosario,
lay in the bay, the flag of Commodore Cracroft floated from the former.
When the various matters usual at this point had been transacted, it
was too dark to go up to Kingston; the captain, however, persuaded
the pilot to take us in, and lanterns being put up in certain parts to
define the channel, we at length, about nine o'clock, steamed up to
the wharf at Kingston. My wife and myself instantly proceeded on
shore, passed through a crowd of women and men, waiting to coal the
ship, and reached Blundell House, to which we had been recommended.
This is kept by a respectable mulatto lady, Miss Louisa Grant. We
Were now comfortably arranged in a cool sitting-room, with bedroom
adjoining, congratulating ourselves upon being on terra firma, and out
of the noise and dust of coaling. 10       EXTRACTS FROM THE BISHOP OF COLUMBIA'S JOURNAL.
We found at this hotel the celebrated Mrs. Seacole, of Crimean
fame. Kingston is her native place, and Miss Grant is her sister. She
had come out from England, intending to go to British Columbia, but
had stopped by the way; she is a person of about sixty. The book of
her life and adventures was open on the table, edited by Mr. Russell,
the- Correspondent of the Times, who in the preface speaks of the high
estimation hi which Mrs. Seacole was held, and of her philanthropic
and Christian labours for the sick, the wounded, and the hungry. A
picture of the heroine is presented on the cover, with face and bonnet
bespattered with blood, in the act of preparing a bandage on the battlefield Mrs. Seacole is the daughter of a Scotch soldier; her mother
held a similar establishment to this, and was famous as a doctress^
Mrsi Seacole herself became initiated early in the mysteries of Creole
medical art. Before going to the Crimea, she had travelled in the
Central States of America, and assisted her brother on the Isthmus of
Panama, during the first rush of Americans to California. Mrs. Seacole is an intelligent person, and on Monday came to greet us, dressed
in green silk, and decorated with the Turkish and other Crimean
Monday, February 6.—My wife and I sallied forth into the town.
There had fallen a shower of rain, which had just laid the dust, and
made walking less disagreeable than usual in the dusty streets. There
is no paving or fighting in Kingston, the shops are good, well supplied
and served. Saddlery, harness, and coloured prints and engravings in
frames struck -me as being in much demand. The houses generally
had a dilapidated appearance. There are several churches ; the Church
of England is in a considerable majority. The Rev. D. H. Campbell
is the rector; he called upon me. We visited the central school, where
is a depot of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, and a
place for the meeting of the clergy; also, we went over the Museum
of the Society of Arts, which -was dilapidated and dirty, and little
cared for or used.
. I was much gratified by a sisit to the girls' and boys' department of
Woolmer's Foundation School. Woolmer was a German, who lived
150 years ago, and left property now worth 1,500Z. a year, for a school
for free education. The Church of England Catechism is taught all
children except Roman Catholics. The Principal is the Rev. Mr.
Gordon, a pure negro, a man of considerable intelligence. Under him.
are four other teachers, several of whom are white men, one a well
educated English gentleman. The rooms are spacious and airy, and
classes are held in the cool verandahs. We found about 300 boys
assembled, almost entirely coloured, black and yellow. Two very
intelligent youths, acting as pupil teachers, were pure negro. I examined the first class, in which were twelve, of whom three were wMte,
four black, the rest yellow; the eldest, a mulatto, was fifteen; the DECK FORWARD  OF THE  "SOLENT." II
youngest, a black, ten. They stood up to "read. The book was
Macaulay's " History of England." I selected for the subject, the conduct of James IL in the crisis which led to the trial of the seven
bishops. The reading was very good, certainly better thamin a class of
a middle school in England; there was an ease, right emphasia and
intelligence very often wanting even in schools of the higher classes
in England; they were quick in parsing the words afterwards. I gave
them some dictation, which was quickly and well done. Some of
these boys do Greek and Latin.    I had not time to examine them.
Near to that of the boys is the girls' school; here were about 200
assembled. Being Monday, and there having been rain, the attendance
was smaller than usual. I perceived by the register that even 300
sometimes attended ; so with the boys, often 700 are in attendance at
the two schools, with 1,000 on the books. The girls did not answer
so intelligently as the boys, nor was the reading equal in proportion to
that of the latter; the first class, however, were clean, well-behaved,
and well-dressed. I addressed them, and spoke of Missionary work in
Africa and Columbia The mistress seemed intelligent. There was a
quietness and order, and healthiness of tone about the school, wMch
spoke well for the teachers. The books used in these schools are
those of the National Society in Ireland. Lennox's Grammar is used
in the boys'.    The Macaulay was published at Harper's, New York.
No one could fail to be convinced, by the sight and examination of
these schools, that the African race is quite capable of being advanced
to the highest state of culture. White and black of the same age
were mingled up without distinction of mental capacity. If any thing,
I should say the wMte boy was behind the black, judging from their
places in the class.
Left Jamaica at twelve.
Tuesday, February 7.—A breeze and lively sea—as usual in crossing
this1 span of the Carribean Sea.
Wednesday, February 8.—Met the Tyne, the return ship on this
same line; the weather hot, the thermometer above 80°.
A number of deck passengers covered the deck of the Solent; these
were mostly black and coloured people; they had all sorts of light
wares, baskets, mats, of native manufacture. Some of them sat continually keeping guard near their possessions. As night drew on their
mats were :spread, and without covering, except their light linen attire,
they stretched themselves to rest. At one time we had on board forty
soldiers of a West Indian Regiment. They were not in a state of high
discipline. On one occasion, the Serjeant in command appealed for
help, and a strong black man, brandishing a knife, was secured in
handcuffs and confined. I heard one man as we were nearing the
wharf at Kingston say, in a discontented mutter, " If I can only get
on shore, I'll take care they never see me again." Another cast him-
self down and said, " Soldiery is no good."    I asked why 1   He said, 12        EXTRACTS FROM THE BISHOP OF COLUMBIA'S JOURNAL.
" Here am I at Jamaica, my native land; I have been seven years
away, and I am not allowed to stop here to see my mudder." He had
been in the Honduras, and was now passing his home to some other
station. At ten at night we arrived at Colon, and anchored in the
bay till morning.
Thursday, February 9.—Colon is called by the name also of Aspin-
wall, in honour of an American, a chief promoter of the Panama railway. Ten years ago this place was a swamp, hot and pestilential.
The gigantic work of the Isthmus railway has raised a town on the spot.
There are many buildings, and some warehouses of a'suhstantial character ; the chief part of the buildings is of wood; the quays, sheds, and
railway-warehouses, are spacious, and well adapted for their purposes.
Mr. Parker kindly conducted my wife and myself to see the new
church. I had been delighted by beholding its progress in 1863 : it is
now completed The edifice is of worked stone throughout; the style
is of the decorated Gothic; all the I windows are of painted glass ;
the chancel is large, and adapted for Church of England worship of a
well-defined character. It has cost, I was informed by Mr. Parker
(superintendent of the railway), 10,0002., chiefly contributed by the
Railway Company. This Company determined to have the Church of
England worship established. Prayer-books (American) were provided on the seats; the chancel furniture is at present the only thing
unprovided. The consecration is to take place in May or June, by
Bishop Potter, of Pennsylvania.
At two o'clock precisely we started from Aspinwall in the railway-
train. There was but one carriage, containing about sixty passengers;
there are no glass windows, but shutters only. We chose the shady
side by which the blinds were raised, and we could get the air as well
as the view.
This wonderful work was five years under construction; it was
begun in 1849, and finished in 1855. The first thirteen miles was
through a deep morass, covered with the densest jungle, reeking with
malaria, and abounding with almost every species of wild beasts,
noxious reptiles, and venomous insects. Further on, though some of
the land was fair and beautiful, the greater part of the line was through
a rugged country, along steep hill-sides, over wild chasms spanning
turbulent rivers and furious mountain torrents, until the summit ridge
was surmounted, when it descended abruptly to the shores of the
Pacific. One great difficulty was the want of labourers; Europeans
failed—Chinese, after a while, developed a suicidal tendency, and
daily numbers were found the victims of self-destruction. The work,
eventually, was accomplished by Jamaica negroes. The entire cost,
including wharves at Aspinwall, up to 1859, was eight millions of
dollars, or 1,600,0002. SCENERY—VEGETATION. 13
The route of the Panama railway lay through the heart of a primeval
forest of the utmost tropical luxuriance, interspersed with the wildest
and most picturesque scenery, and along beautiful rivers. Perpetual
summer reigns, but with a dry and wet season ; the latter from May
to October, when the verdure is most brilliant, though in the dry
season flowers are in abundance. We had the advantage of this dry
season now, when from the evergreen palms hung clusters of ripe
palm-nuts of the richest scarlet; while passion-flowers of the richest
crimson and purple convolvuli decorate the sceue. The great variety
of parasitic growths excite attention everywhere. Almost every tree
and shrub supports more or fewer of these treacherous leaches, from
the form and size of a tuft of grass to some whose branches exceed in
magnitude those of the largest trees. Some large trees have been
killed by them, and then left mere shells. A curious variety, deposited
by birds upon the highest trees, sends down long fibrous tendrils,
without a single branching twig, to the earth, where it again takes
root, when it increases to five or six inches in diameter; the smaller
ones are used as cordage. Trailing vines and blossoming creepers are
on every side in great profusion. A principal bush is the mangrove,
whose branches, shooting downwards, often enter the soil, take root,
and, interlacing, form an impenetrable barrier. Some very fine trees,
with white smooth bark, are the cedro, out of which the natives will
hollow a canoe of fifteen' to twenty tons. Its broad roots spread out
like buttresses, and its trunk runs up without a branch a hundred feet,
and then spreads out in a canopy of foliage, fifty feet in diameter.
Here and there, native huts are seen, surrounded with patches of
plantains, bananas, Indian corn, and sugar-cane. There is a great
variety of pahns, not less than twenty-one varieties, on the rail The
palm-oil of commerce is very abundant, with its clusters of scarlet
nuts; the. wine-palm, the sago-palm, the ivory-palm, the glove-palm,
the cabbage-palm, from wMch are derived articles of food or of useful
application. There are stations at every four miles, and a telegraph
whose posts are of concrete. It was found wood did not answer, on
account of the rapid decay. A small straight stick, of the necessary
height, was placed in the ground, surrounded by a jointed wooden
mould, wide at base, some way in the ground, tapering at top. This
was filled with concrete, and has produced solid pillars, as hard as
stone. There is but one rail; two trains leave each terminus daily.
The highest point on the road at the summit is not 300 feet above the
sea. The inhabitants are Negro and Indian; many of the latter being
mixed with Spanish blood. Their huts are of bamboo, thatched with
plantain-leaves; their beds are hammocks. Sun-dried and fresh beef,
pork, eggs, and fowls are plentiful; but their chief subsistence is the
yam and plantain. The distance across is forty-eight miles; we travelled it in two hours and three-quarters, reaching Panama and the
gentle ocean of the West, after a pleasant journey, at a quarter to five*
We had telegraphed for beds at the Aspinwall Hotel, and found at
the station an omnibus ready to convey our whole party to the town.
The vehicle was good enough, but the mules and the road were
alike in sorry condition. The bedrooms in the hotel were good,
looking out upon verandahs, where a cool breath could be sometimes
got in this fiery furnace. There was also a large and cool saloon
for sitting in; but the eating-rooms were close and dirty. No
meals are sent up to the sitting-rooms; it is customary for all to go
down between certain hours and have the meals—from eight to eleven
for breakfast, from three to six for dinner; luncheon, ice, wine, &c,
extra. We stayed four days, and for my party of seven, including
omnibus and taking to and fro of luggage to the station, I had to pay
|106 (212.). We were all heartily glad to get away on shipboard
once more.
Panama is an old Spanish town, situated in lat. 8° 56' N., long.
79° 31' W.; has 10,000 inhabitants. Several beautiful islands are to
the north-west, in the fine roadstead. The old town, six miles southeast, was destroyed, in 1661, by Sir Harry Morgan. The cathedral
has a handsome facade, with two western towers; the style is Italian*
There are several other churches, all more or less dilapidated. The
east end of the cathedral has no window, but the usual figures; it
resembles very much the interior of a Chinese joss-house. Round the
town are ramparts, which are strongly built; these are altogether out
of repair. We had a charming evening walk upon them, and looked
upon the placid waters of the Pacific, beneath the cool shade of night,
and by the light of the moon.
Friday, February 10.—Mr. Henderson, the British Consul, took my
wife and myself to-day a dehghtful drive. No one stirs out till five
o'clock ; dining generally at four o'clock, and spending the evening in
going out for drives, and in visiting. Mrs. Henderson accompanied
her husband, and we went to the plains, about three or four miles out
of the town, and drove upon the grassy slopes, amid park-like scenery
and herds of cattle, which reminded one of the Alderney breed.
Saturday, February 11.—Our kind friend Mr. Henderson invited
us to dine with him and his amiable wife to-day. We met several
Americans, who were pleasant; and, as next day was Sunday, we
practised the hymns and psahns. The singing and music are eon-
ducted by Mrs. Henderson, Miss Goddard, and Mr. Corwine,—the two
latter American. Mrs. Henderson afterwards charmed us with some
exquisite singing, in which she greatly excels.
Nothing can exceed the corrupt condition of the Government in the
Republic of New Granada; it is in the hands of the lowest of the
people. The old Spanish stock have been gradually put aside, and
those of Indian and Negro race have come into power. A ease occurred
this day in the courts which may serve for illustration.    A boy had ~\
stolen $2,000 (4002.); ho had'escaped to Colon, where he was found
with $1,800 (3602.) upon him. The three judges decided there was
no evidence to show he had stolen the money; they therefore decreed
the money found should be divided into four parts—one part should
be given to the boy, and one to each of themselves.
Sunday, February 12.—The Rev: Mr. Sail has been sent here by
the South American Missionary Society; he has been kindly received
both by the British and American residents. The English and Amer
rican Steam Companies and the Railway Company allow him several
hundreds a year. He gives one service at Panama on Sundays; one
at Taboga, where the British Steamship South Pacific Company have
works and a hundred men. There is an island, where Americans work,
where he occasionally has service. At.present he gives service on
board the American ship-of-war St. Mary, at nine every Sunday—
Taboga afterwards. He has a service on the railway one day in the
week. He has been much disappointed with the coloured people,
who professed much zeal at first, but who, many of them, turned out
to be disreputable. Many, also, professed readiness to join the movement; but when Sunday-trading was held inconsistent with their
profession, immediately they drew back, and fell away. There are
twelve communicants at present. The service is held,in an upper
I held service there to-day; had the whole service in the morning,
and preached in the evening. There were about forty people present
in the morning, and about eighty in the evening. There are but few
British subjects. It is pleasing to see our Church thus uniting differ
rent nationalities and colour. I had agreed with Mr. Sail to have
only the Litany; but an American lady, Miss Goddard, said she hoped
they -might have the longer service—she was sure many would prefer
it. Others assented, and I had the longer, notwithstanding the heat,
and was pleased to see so much love for our Liturgy. Miss- Goddard
played the harmonium.
Mr. Sail will have here a difficult work; but it is refreshing indeed
to have a pure worship in the midst of corruption of morals and decay
of all pure principle and truth. The professed religion is Roman
Catholic; there-is, however, entire toleration.. The priests are immoral
and neglectful Amongst other noises that greeted us in the early
hours was cock-crowing—every*house has it cocks, clipped and tied.
Cock-fighting is the universal amusement: they say the priests go
from the mass to the cock-pits. Mr. Sail applied for a building for
service : he was ready to pay the required rent. The Government did
not reply, but gave it up for a cock-pit.
Monday, February 13.—Soon after eight o'clock this morning, the
telegraph announced the North Star steamer, from New York, in sight
at Aspinwall (Colon). In an hour or two more, we learned the passengers would be over at half-past three o'clock, previously to which 16  EXTRACTS FROM THE BISHOP OF COLUMBIA'S JOURNAL.
we ourselves must be on board the tender, to be conveyed to the
Pacific steamer, the Golden City. Mr. Henderson, the British Consul
brought us in his carriage to the wharf. We embarked in the tender,
itself capable of conveying 700 passengers. There were two decks,
an upper and a lower, to which two gangways, allowing only of single
file, led from the quay; for the first and second to the upper, and
steerage passengers to the lower.
The train at length arrived, and the stream began to pour down the
wharf, and in at the two gangways. Eor three hundred years this
stream has not ceased to flow from Europe to America—never stronger
was the tide than now. Not only to America, but across to the Pacific,
is the restless flow. Thousands each month pass over this isthmus.
" Westward ho !" is the ceaseless cry. On they come, with a hum
and a buzzing and a din of voices, and eager pressing one before
another to secure best places. Now they have reached the gangway,
and begin, one by one, to come on board. Armed men, soldiers with
bayonets, company officers with revolvers ready, stand about, keeping
back the rough crowd, and guiding and helping the struggling and the
weak. I stood and watched this great fact from the ship, over against
the two streams; for a great fact is this migration of our race. There
was a motley crowd pouring down into the lower deck, and disappearing from view, as though lost in an abyss. There was a more limited
and better-to-do looking assemblage coming on to the deck on which
I was. There was the strong youth, full of health, dressed in his best,
newly fitted out, carrying his leather bag and his box. There were
young women, some pale and weary with heat and sea-sickness, others
hearty and elated. There were families of peevish children, and parents
anxious and jaded.
The sullen and clouded brow told of some escape from justice or
shame, and the keen and withered visage bespoke the gambler. Such
a variety was there of dress—some new, some tattered and dirty; and
baggage—all carried as much as possible—bags gaping wide and ragged
bundles ; now and then a German family with all their kitchen articles
—indeed, aU nations were represented.
Then above poured on a somewhat different crowd. The successful
merchant, who went out as a youth of twenty-one, has been "home,"
and returns with several friends. A gay bride steps flauntingly on
board, and hums an air. The successful miner — a poor working
man ten years ago, now the owner of considerable property—he too
has been home, fravelhng first-class all the way, still rough looking,
but with a good expression : he has been no loafer or drinker, but a
careful man, and deserves all his industry has gained. There are cages
of canaries, and other little treasured reminiscences of home. Some are
laden with oranges and pine-apples, whose own native soil they for
the first time tread on; and some, struck with the tropical luxuriance,
have some gorgeous flowers in hand There are no old men or women,
hardly a middle aged person to be seen. And now in the midst of all
this stirring scene along the narrow gangway comes a fitter, on which
a sickly woman rests. The British Consul, who stood with me, thought
it was a man : I saw by the feet to what sex the poor thing belonged, SERVICE ON BOARD THE  "GOLDEN CITY." 17
and I saw too unmistakeably that the hand of death was actively at
work. The litter passed on, and the crowd still pressed after, and
other sights of varied humanity were presented in succession.
By and by I went to that part of the vessel where my wife and other
ladies were sitting. I found them in some uneasiness. The fitter had
been placed near them, and the sight of the poor dying woman was most
painful. As death hastened his work, the afflicted husband began to
realize his trial: his cries and lamentations were now the attraction,—
" oh dear partner, I cannot spare you yet," " oh do .not go from me,"
" what friend have I in the world like thee ! " I of course went and sat
with him, and exhorted him to trust in the love and wisdom of God. I
was glad to hear i him, in accordance with my suggestion, pray to God
to receive the departing spirit, to cleanse it, and bless it for ever. He
said also, " Oh, dear sir, I know there is nothing but the grace of God
that can enable me to bear this trial." It was a comfort to know that
this stranger was a Christian believer, and to hope that the loved
partner of his life, now unconscious, had participated with him in a
religious life—alas! so often wanting in these outlying countries. He
was a medical man, and knew well that death had taken her; but as
he closed her eyes and mouth, loud and piteous was his grief: " Who
will now befriend me," he said, " and help me to lay this dear one out
' on yonder seat, where she may rest awhile 1" I assured him there
were many friends ready to do all that was necessary. A consultation
took place. The body was removed on shore, and again the excitement and bustle was renewed. Except on some hearts, an impression,
we may hope, remained, that in the " midst of life we are in death."
Three days before this lady had been at dinner—to-day in her grave.
How little do any of us know how soon death may come ! Oh God,
graciously touch our hearts with constant mindfulness of life's uncertainty : enable us to five as we would die, and fix us more and more
upon the strong rock of our salvation, even upon Jesus, who died
that we might five, and hath opened the kingdom of heaven to all
We reached the Golden City about five o'clock, and were soon
located in our cabins. The utmost precaution is now taken by these
Federal passenger ships to guard against surprise by Confederates.
Every article of baggage was searched; all firearms were taken away,
and retained till the end of the voyage; our baggage was excepted,
but only by special favour. Recently an attempt was made to take a
smaller steamer plying to the Central States, and then with it to take
these larger ones. The conspiracy was discovered and frustrated, but
certainly justifies the present precaution. On the Golden City there
is a guard of regular troops of the States.
Sunday, February 19.—At eleven this morning I held service in
the dining saloon for the first and second-class passengers. There
were about 100 assembled, amongst whom, besides our own party,
there were only three Englishmen. Amongst the Americans "there
were probably, as usual, very few Episcopalians. To use the Enghsh
full service was therefore out of the question, so I found my cards for
worship and hymns very useful. Selected from the liturgy, and preserving the parts, of the service, they were a prayer-book for all, showing
the beauty and order and convenience of liturgical worship. There
was very general use of them. The responses were audible, and the
recitation of the Creed even was well made. Nobody knell—they
never do in America-^but there was decorum in manner otherwise.
I addressed them at the commencement explaining the objects of
Worship, and alluding to erroneous views on the subject. Being on
American soil, amongst Americans, I eould not introduce the English
State prayers, but used the prayer for the President of the United
States, out of the American Prayer-book
A Baptist lady helped me with the hymns, and after my sermon
two other Americans, Baptists, eame up and thanked me. Strange
indeed is the medley of religion and opinions in this stream of migration. The minister of God's Church must not neglect the opportunity of doing some good. He may not be able to do it in the
good old way of his fathers, but in missionary work we have often
to meet the special emergency by special means. I always consider
these occasions such special opportunities for doing good, to be met in
a special way.
At four to-day we steamed into the beautiful harbour of Acapulco.
We stayed four hours and a half. I did not go on shore, because
there was a promise of a second service, and I did not wish to appear
to have given it up, besides not wishing to tire myself. We did not
have the service, as the ship did not sail early enough, and until
starting there was much excitement and noise. I was sorry, because
the third-class passengers had no service the whole day.
All the time We were in the harbour natives, in canoes hollowed
out of a single tree, were trading round the ship. The scene was
most animating, but, being Sunday, we abstained from taking part
in it as' traders, although there were some articles we should have
Eked to have purchased as curiosities.
We have coasted Mexico for several hundred miles, sometimes being
within a mile of the shore. The country is generally mountainous—
a lower range prevailing near the coast, while forty or fifty miles
inland a region some 6,000 or 8,000 feet above the sea was the constant feature. The sides of the hills were for the most part covered
with a low scrub. There were some bare sand-hills; also at times
high rocky bluffs against which the white spray rose in lively play.
I understand there are fertile valleys in the midst of the hills. Very
slight traces of population were visible from the sea There are no
ports of any note, but several roadsteads near entrances of rivers,
This evening, soon after passing Cape St. Lucas, Lower California,
we witnessed a most brilliant sunset. The whole heavens were illuminated from one end to the other in the entire horizon—east and west,
north and south. In the east, opposite the sunset, the sky of the
horizon was richly coloured. In the foreground the mountain range
was tinted.with a deep plum-colour. As the sun disappeared, the sky
nearly to the zenith was brilliant orange, and the clouds were red.
The spot where last the sun was beheld then appeared as. a oelestial
eity, bright and glowing with the intensest lustre. Soon the red of
the clouds changed to purple, while blue of the purest turquoise chat
racterised the vault of heaven; Presently brilliant orange in the
horizon, with pale lilac above, coloured the scene, and after relighting
Up again and again the clouds around, the last appearance was the
richest golden, fading into greenish blue above, wherein Venus now
took her place as the queen-star of the night, brightening with a
stream of fight the dark placid bosom of the Pacific.
:. Sunday, February 26.—At eleven this morning I held service.
The attendance was not so numerous as last Sunday, partly owing to
the swell and motion, and partly from the curiosity of some having
been already gratified We had a missionary service, as last Sunday.
In the afternoon I went to the fore part of the ship, to hold service
amongst the steerage passengers. In 1859 the same captain had refused permission that I should do so, on account of the uncertain
character of the mass of emigrants.
The only preparation made for service was a form^ with a flag of
the stars and stripes over it for a sort of- table for me. There were
no seats or benches of any kind—the poor people were crowded like
cattle, and left to settle themselves how they could. It was a strange
and motley scene. There was a broad ladder down to the sleeping-
berths, and another to the upper deck; these were seized on at once,
and some twenty or thirty hung about them. Many were lying down
full length, others sitting in groups on the floor ; others were standing
' The audience consisted almost entirely of men in roughest attire.
The greater part kept their caps or hats on. There were two parties
of American soldiers amongst the best- behaved. A service was evidently strange to many—hardly one seemed to have, acquaintance with
a liturgical service. I distributed litany cards, and explained worship
and the part they were to take, but no responses were made—they
were mere listeners. In ihe hymns there were more who joined, but
the Old Hundredth only was known; our common Evening Hymn tune
was not known. Though, these 200 men were a strange-looking set,,
yet there was considerable attention throughout, and some appeared
really interested. My subject was from John v. (life and Death), and
I trust, by God's blessing, some good was done.
I think it is much to be lamented that the authorities of these,
J r
ships should treat this class of passengers with so little consideration.
Not to mention the reVerence and respect due to Divine worship, it
would conduce to good order and discipline, if some care was taken
in providing seats for a certain number; if some of the officers of the
ship were present; if unnecessary noise and business of the ship was
restrained. I was much disturbed by the cinders being removed just
at the time of service—a most noisy proceeding. There was a sheep
wandering about, making a loud bleating, but no one was'there who
had authority to preserve order. Some of the audience were as much
annoyed as I was, and indeed the whole thing was a painful reflection
upon the careless inattention of the company to the comfort at least of
a numerous class of passengers.
Monday, February 27.—Got to San Francisco about ten. The Rev.
Mr. Wyatt, chairman of the standing committee of the diocese of
California, came with several clergy to meet me and to press me to
remain some days. I had resolved to go on direct, for I had been
already too long absent from my diocese. The Archdeacon Wright
and Mr. Dundas were both awaiting my arrival previous to their own
return, and the matter of the Bishopric division required prompt
attention on the spot. Mr. Wyatt was very pressing, and stated
arrangements* had been made for my taking a tour of the country.
We found apartments had been secured at the " Lick House," an hotel
of some importance, deriving its odd name from that of its proprietor,
where all arrangements were comfortable and clean. We had not-
been long in the hotel before visitors began to arrive. Several pleasant,
kind people showed us attention. Called upon Mr. Booker, the*
British Consul. In the afternoon I walked about the city with my
wife. Mr. Booker joined us. There are no fine buildings, and not
a square—a great defect. For several years there have not been
any considerable improvements. There are more houses, the spaces
are more filled in, but, with the exception of three or four streets,
there are plank side-walks and roads, with abundant irregularities and
mud-holes, over and through which you jolt and flounder in no very
pleasant way. We were struck with the jewellers' shops, which are
in request; the silk mercers had a great display also. Some excellent
hardware struck us, wMch on inquiry we found came from Sheffield.
The principal improvement was the erection of large hotels, such as
the | Cosmopolitan " and the " Occidental," which are really good, and
such as in Europe are hardly excelled.
Tuesday, February 28.—At half-past ten o'clock the Rev. Mr.
Wyatt came to convey me to Grace Cathedral, which is a fine structure
and capable of holding a large congregation. It was well filled. Tho
clergy in surplices sat on either side in the choir, 1 sat on the north
side. Mr. Clark and Mr. Wyatt sat on the south side within the rails.
The service was the Morning Prayer; the Venite and Te Deum were
chanted; at the end of the Psalms, "Gloria inExcelsis" was sung. VOYAGE TO PORTLAND 21
There was a hymn after the Morning Prayer. I then preached a
sermon on confirmation, after which a psalm was chanted. Mr. Wyatt
•read the Preface to the Confirmation. The candidates were then invited
.to come forward; they had not been placed in any one part, but were
•dispersed. It was a striking sight to see them rising up from all parts
of the congregation, male and female, and advancing to the chancel
A large proportion were persons of some age; there were but very few
of the age of fifteen or sixteen. The proportion of sexes was good.
"There was more of the male sex, I think, than is seen often in
England. I then addressed them, standing all, seventy-five in
number, before the rails. I called for silent prayer for a space
before the prayer for the Holy Ghost. The candidates then came to
the rails as they would to the Communion, not one at first, the other
-after, but as they were placed. I liked this; there was a freedom
wMch gave the idea of perfect independence and willingness in offering themselves. Our plan of keeping the sexes apart and bringing
•them "up in charge suits better with the very young than where a
majority are of maturer years. I was informed many were persons
who had not been brought up in the Anglican Communion. Some
had been recently baptized. I addressed them afterwards. There was
considerable feeling displayed by the candidates. Altogether I am
thankful to feel the occasion was an impressive season, calculated to
advance the cause of God and the salvation of men's souls. Several
persons afterwards expressed their conviction that this was the case,
and I trust too a kindly feeling was improved not only between the
Churches, but between our nationalities.
On inquhing to-day for my bill at the hotel, including hire of
•carriage several times for my party of seven, I was told there was
nothing to pay. I found the Church Committee had so arranged that
I should be franked for every expense during my stay. Three of the
principal clergy and Mr. Booker kindly came to see us off.
On a board in San Francisco was painted, "Miss Clara Simons,
Clairvoyante, Physician, and Test Medium." On a board at Portland
was a name painted, after which was "Trance Speaking Medium."
Bishop Scott spoke of the prevalence of tMs superstition, and
instanced cases. He and Mr. Hyland agreed that Spiritualists were
always infidels.
We left San Francisco at six o'clock, February 28th, in the Sierra
Nevada, for Portland, Oregon, and Victoria There was a great crowd
of miners going to the Boisi and Kutanais mines. The steamer is
calculated to hold about 250 passengers. We had 550, which with
the crew made above 600 souls on board. Berths for a large number
of course there were none.   Every available standing space during the
) 22
day was occupied : at night the scene was strange indeed. Being late
in application we had most inferior accommodation. We had but two
cabins with four berths between seven, the two little girls and our
two female servants occupied one, my wife and myself the other.
William had a mattress under the table of the dining saloon. The
.table itself was occupied from one end to the other by sleeping men,
the seats also; every six feet had a sleeper, and beneath the floor was
similarly covered This was immediately before the door of our cabin.
Outside in a narrow passage immediately under our window (a borrowed
light) was a mass of human creatures by night and day, huddled
together, filthy and offensive to the sight and smell. These were
Chinese, of whom one would now and then rise up and present his
dirty visage to darken away the little fight we had. The poor
steerage and second-class passengers were much worse off. On the
open deck at night were rows of living forms wrapped up in blankets,
without mattress or pillow or cover from the rain and snow. As an
instance of suffering, a young man in the former steamer which we
metf the Pacific, was frost-bitten, and left at Portland, Grippled
perhaps for fife. We brought him on towards San Francisco again
from Portland.
But the wretchedness of the provision at night for the mass of
human beings was nothing to the disagreeable trials of the day-time.
Bad enough as the case was for an experienced traveller, it was simply
distressing to a lady. The company had so arranged the fares that all
who could scrape up the money came first class to avoid the actual
suffering of the only other alternative. There is no second class, so
we were surrounded on all sides by the gold-miner class. There are
many worthy members of this body, but it is well-known that the most
reckless, vicious, and unrestrained of mankind also belong to it, if not
forming a large proportion. The crowd was so great that a seat was
scrambled for the moment vacated. My wife and I constantly sat out
in the cold, unable to get seats within the saloon, and dreading also
the close and confined atmosphere. But when out in the cold there
were many around us; almost every one chews tobacco, and is
constantly freeing his mouth from the horrible saliva this operation
creates. The whole floor, the carpet, matting, as well as the deck, was
one continued scene of this filthy custom. My wife constantly had
to get up and go to her cabin, disgusted and sickened.
Then oaths, low language, and disgusting talk were to be heard on
all sides. Card-playing going on all day and in the evening. Then
at meals there was a rush and a scramble for seats; the food was
constantly too ill-cooked to be touched, and for several days the water
was of a ferruginous colour; the attendance was bad and the servants
rude. Added to all this, we had several days a head wind against ns
and much rolling and pitching, so that sea-sickness was prevalent.
As the ship groaned and creaked in the night under the strain of the
weather, it vssas indeed an awful reflection- that 600 souls should be VISIT TO SPENCER HALL—BISHOP SCOTT. 23-

safety and decency. Yet there is no redress, and it is a shame that
a British colony should have no other means than this of communicating with the civilized world, a means which if accurately known
would certainly deter any person of education or refinement, from
venturing to come from England to the colony.
Simday, March 5.—We reached Portland, 140 miles from the
mouth of the Columbia river, about three o'clock this morning. There
was little sleep to be had.
We attended St. Stephen's Chapel where Bishop Scott officiates.
The service should have been at half-past ten. It was a very rainy
morning, and there was but a small congregation. After waiting some
time, a layman, Judge Waite, rose up and announced there would be no
service, as the Bishop had not come and must be ill. I at once offered
to take the service. I read prayers and preached. In the evening
we attended Trinity Church, where the Rev. R. E. Hyland requested
me to preach, which I did.
Monday, March 6.—Snow at intervals during the day. The Rev.
Mr. Hyland came about one o'clock to take my wife and myself to
visit Bishop Scott, the Bishop of Oregon and Washington. We went
in a comfortable hack carriage superior to our London cabs, drawn by
a couple of capital horses. The road, through the town was not bad
merely, but almost hazardous, full of mud-holes and irregularities. We
seemed at one time likely to be pitehed out, and at another to be stuck
fast in the muddy hollow, where the water eame nearly into the carriage.
The greatest care was required on the part of the driver. After leaving
the shameful streets, as these muddy holes are called, of Portland, we
came upon a fairly macadamised road running along the side of the
Willamette, made by a company for recreation in the summer and
autumn, six miles to a spot opposite Milwaukie, where Spencer Hall is-
situated. We passed through the forest, and saw the clearings of the
farmer all along the way. We crossed to Milwaukie by a ferry, and
found Bishop Scott at home. He opened the door himself. Bishop
Seott is a tall man of some sixty-five winters, with an intelligent
brow ; he is very much of the American in appearance and manner;
he is dressed somewhat in a rough farmer-like way; he works hard
for the house, chops wood, lights fires, superintends the provision for
the family. He was once a Presbyterian minister, and came over to
the Church on the question of orders. On other points of theology he
is what would be ealled Evangelical. Speneer Hall, the residence of
Bishop Scott, is also a school for girls brought up under his-presi- 24      EXTRACTS FROM THE BISHOP OF COLUMBIA'S JOURNAL.
dency. There are twenty, who pay sixty dollars (122.) a quarter,
washing not included. There is a mistress, a superior-looking lady,
and Bishop Scott gives up two hours each morning. He has no
family. Mrs! Scott is a pleasing person. Both Bishop Scott and his
wife are Southerners, and are strongly in favour of the South. We
spent an hour with the Bishop and returned, having had a pleasant
The chief hotel in Portland is kept by Arigoni, an Italian. We
should have had a room, but he was quite full. He said he learnt to
speak English in London, and had a great respect for England. He
was a Catholic, but supported all denominations ; he subscribed to the
Episcopalians, the Presbyterians, the Methodists, the Baptists, and the
Jews; he helped them all, and wished all to prosper. My wife and I
had dinner to-day in the public dining-room of the hotel As I passed
the office I was prepared to pay. " Oh, no," said he, " you must pay
nothing; you are quite welcome to all your meals, and to stay as long
as you like. I am glad to see ministers of all denominations, and I
charge them nothing at all."
A Methodist minister made a speech a few days ago at a political
meeting. It was touching Lincoln's re-election. " I was struck," said
he, " very much by the appropriateness of the Lord's call to Abraham,
Gen. xxii. 15 : 'The angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of
heaven the second time ;' so the Lord has twice called Abraham Lincoln 1"    This was received, of course, with great applause.
In America there are many expedients for raising money to carry on
the operations of the Church. "Hardly a week passes," said Mr.
Hyland, " but he goes out to a Sociable." A member of the congregation invites others to a party. They talk and laugh, and amuse
themselves, and have a supper; after which a plate goes round
for a collection for the Church. The clergyman is sometimes
agreeably surprised by a donation party. Two ladies announced
their intention to have a cup of tea quietly one evening with the
clergyman and his wife. The object of this was to keep the
worthy pastor and his spouse at home. While the quiet little
gossip of the small tea-quartette was going on, a knock at the door
introduced another member of the congregation, followed by another and another, and along the road were seen coming a hundred
lantern-lighted folk, and presently the whole house was full, and
each individual was the bearer of a present. Sacks of flour, sides of
bacon, pounds of tea and sugar, easy chairs, carpets, clothing ; indeed,
all kinds of articles such as were deemed requisite for the comfort of
the worthy pah in their new house. Mr. Hyland, on one occasion, had
300 dollars' (602.) worth of goods thus donated to him by his attentive
March 8.—We left Portland at eight. Grounded twice on the
shoals of the Columbia, and remained fixed on one the whole night.
Next day, March 9, crossed the dreaded bar. My wife and myself
were on the hurricane deck. There was not a breaker upon the bar,
which is about half a mile wide, with three and a half fathoms water.
South-west is the worst wind. Captain Corner recently remained
outside five days tossed in a tumultuous sea unable to cross. A ship was
wrecked here a few days after.   Ships entering pay Mgher insurance.
Friday, March 10.—We arrived at Esquimalt Harbour about ten,
and were gladdened by the sight of British men-of-war. Friends
were soon on board to greet us, and we were ere long on the road to
Victoria, thankful for having been thus permitted by a merciful God to
conclude our voyage in safety and in health.
Presented March 13, 1865, by the Clergy of the City, and the Joint-
Committees of Christ Church and St. John's :•—
"My Lord,—We gladly embrace the earliest opportunity of welcoming your Lordship on your arrival in your diocese. We would
unite with you J in heartily thanking our Heavenly Father for having
safely kept you during your lengthened visit to your native land, as
well as during your voyage of return to the field of your labours. We
earnestly trust that the important objects which required your Lordship's visit to England, and your prolonged stay there, have been
successfully accomplished. We are confident that you have spared
neither thought nor labour for the attainment of this end, and that
nothing but your sense of the -necessity for aiding all in your power
towards securing the present and permanent welfare of the Church of
Christ in this distant part of the British Empire, has detained your
Lordship so long from your diocese and your home. We rejoice in
knowing that you have succeeded in carrying through the preliminary
measures for the division of your diocese. We are aware that it was
an object which your Lordship had much at heart, and we are persuaded that its accomplishment will not only relieve you from a portion
of your labours in a diocese so territorially extensive, but also, under
the Divine blessing, further the work of the Gospel, both among the
colonists and the native inhabitants of the land.
" But while expressing our hopes and our congratulations respecting
the results of your LordsHp's efforts for the strengthening of the
Church in these colonies, yet we would at the same time express our
conviction that if the benign influence and usefulness of that Church 2S ADDRESSES TO  THE BISHOP OF COLUMBIA.

apostolic office of our chief pastor, and that in addition to all other
happiness, whether personal or domestic, the Lord may grant you the
still greater happiness of seeing your work prospering to the honour

After graciously receiving the document^ his Lordship replied to
the following effect:—
"Mr. Archdeacon, Rev. Brethren, and Gentlemen,—For your cordial
welcome and expressions of thankfulness for my health and safety, I
heartily thank you. You well know how necessary it is for an infant
Church, in a new colony, where population is unsettled and fluctuating,
to have external aid for a time. More particularly must we, being
free from all State connexion, and recipients of no grant from the
public treasury, look awhile to the sympathies of the Church at home,
" I am glad to tell you there are many hearts and hands in Christian
England enlisted to aid in planting this branch of the Church of our
fathers in this western British province.
"Tou only do justice to those friends, to yourselves, and to me, by
the expression of your conviction that the satisfactory establishment
and extension of the Church, ean only be accomplished by the hearty
co-operation, in prayer, and labour, and offerings, of the clergy and
laity of the colonies themselves',
" I should have entered with a very faint heart upon the arduous
labour which has incessantly occupied me in England, were I not supported by the certain knowledge, not of your good wishes only, but of
the zeal and energy with which you were prepared to make sacrifice
far the work of God amongst you.
" I am glad you approve of the steps which have been, taken
towards a division of the diocese. The vast extent of the present
diocese rendering it physically impossible to give that attention to all .   ADDRESS FROM NEW WESTMINSTER..; 2?
localities, wMeh is most important in the early stage of planting and
fostering the institutions of Christianity, besides other circumstances,
has made it seem desirable that no time shall be lost in making the
two important towns of Victoria and New Westminster respectively
the seats of a full organization of the Church. I trust this division
may shortly be effected, and look with interest to the increased life
and work with which such a measure has hitherto been everywhere
• " Let me conclude by hoping for the continued co-operation of your
prayers that God will be graciously pleased to bless and guide all our
plans and endeavours for the benefit of His Church and of the souls
of men,"
From the Clergy and Church Committees of Holy Trinity and Sap-
perton Churches :—

Lordship's return to the diocese, and bless God that He has so mercifully carried you in safety over wide- waters, and through vast

meeting you again is increased by the cheering intelligence that your
efforts have been attended by success. Accept our heartiest welcome
and our grateful thanks.
"That God may long spare you to labour amongst us, and that
under your pastoral care the pure doctrine and primitive discipline of
our Church may be more and more fixed in the hearts of those who
make these colonies their home, is the prayer of, my Lord, your faithful servants in Christ,

The Bishop replied as follows :—
" Mr. Archdeacon, Rev. Brethren, and Gentlemen,—I sincerely
thank you for your kind congratulations and welcome on my return
from England.
"■ If I have gone through some labour there in behalf of this branch
of the Church of our fathers, it is a satisfaction to know that you
have approved and appreciated my efforts.
" In New Westminster has ever been exhibited much proof of personal interest in the progress of our religion Your city has been a
pattern for zeal, energy, and liberality.
" But a brief season since your parish church was consecrated to the
worship of Almighty God, standing then at the edge of the forest, on 28 NANAIMO AND  COMOX INDIAN MISSION.
a spot where for ages the giant trees had shut out the fight of day.
That forest has been driven back, and dwellings and gardens, streets
and public edifices, occupy its place.
" You have not only maintained your church and its ministrations,
enlarged its accommodation, and fitly adorned it as the house of God,
but under your able and indefatigable rector, Mr. Sheepshanks, you
have seen an earnest and increasing congregation, to which the fight of
the Gospel, we may believe, has not been manifested in vain.
"I am rejoiced to find a second church nearly ready for consecration, which I confidently expect will be a means of strength and
blessing amongst you.
" I cannot refrain from noticing the remarkable circumstance that
New Westminster is about to be a centre of communication with the
utmost ends of the world. The telegraph is on the point of being
fixed here, with extensions© southward to California, and probably
South America; eastward, by British America, to the Atlantic and
Europe; and westward, by the Pacific and Asia, to Russia. Let it be
our hope and endeavour that New Westminster may be also a centre
of civilization, and from it be sent forth to other lands the message of
the Gospel
" One of my efforts in England has been to endeavour to effect a
-division of this vast diocese, by which would be secured the full
organization of the Church in this city as a centre. I hope this object
will be carried out ere long, in such a way as may tend to the glory of
God, the good of the community, and the extension and efficiency of
the Church of Christ.
" Let me conclude by expressing my sincere wishes for your happiness and prosperity."
Extracts from the Journal of Rev. J. B. Good and his GatecMst,
Mr. Gave, for 1864.
This little one, so long a constant attendant at the Indian Day and
Sunday-school, and whom I baptized two days ago, died last night.
I agreed to bury her at noon. The beU tolled some time. Habited
in surplice and stole, I met the corpse with the procession, and then all
commenced chanting, and so entered the Mission Chapel, where we
had a short service. Then reforming, we, in the same order, proceeded
- to the grave, where we finished the simple ceremony of committing her
body to the dust in " hope of a joyful resurrection." There was no howling or crying, after their manner over the dead. They sorrowed no longer
" as those who had no hope;" for they felt she had gone Home, and RETURN FROM A PATLATCH—CATECHUMEN CLASS.    29
I was truly thankful for the " first fruits " among them, and hope it
is but the precursory dropping of a plentiful shower.
February 7th.—Our Indian service was cheering and refreshing. On
coming away, and passing by a house of an old defunct chief, named
Nito-ees, I heard the well-known sounds of necromancy, or "Clay-
cla-won-ok," as they term it; and on entering the house I found a
wicked old Indian doctor going on with his devilry over the body of
the poor decrepid and bed-ridden chief, who was supposed to be in a
dying state. I know not how it was, but I | felt pressed in spirit"
and terribly rebuked the whole company, exposing the folly and
wickedness of their proceedings, wMch brought everything to a dead
lock: and I left them staring at one another, and muttering, but
evidently scared. The old chief trembled and presented a most
piteous appearance. Those of the tribe who had been with me at
service felt glad in their .hearts at what I had done ; but they stand
in great fear of these medicine men, believing they can strike them
dead. They seemed to expect some terrible thing would happen to
me on account of my temerity. Sooner or later, however, darkness
must flee before the light of truth.
February 23d.—Went through the Indian village to-day and prescribed for some sick. At one time the Indians were afraid to receive
our medicine—now they gladly do so. Accustomed as we are to note
every little incident, personal or other, which may mark a transition
in their habits and morals for the better, it is remarkable how great
that change, in the aggregate, has been since my first arrival four years
ago. And why then not look for and expect still greater in time to
March 19th.—Our Indians have all returned from the great
Cowitchen gathering, and seem, like the rest assembled, to have
conducted themselves with unusual sobriety and quietness. No
quarrelling, rows, nor drunkenness. This is certainly gratifying.
They all, I believe, also were careful to observe the outward obligations
of the Lord's Day.
March 24:th.—My class of catechumens met to-night for their final
examination and (D.V.) they will all be gathered into the fold of
Christ on Easter Day.
Good Friday.—It was delightful to witness the quiet and decorum
which reigned throughout the town and Indian village to-day. It
seemed almost, to me, to wear a more peaceful aspect than is usual on
Sundays even, and afforded a happy contrast to the painful disregard
for its memory and claims on our attention we were compelled to
witness a year ago. 30 '  "   NANAIMO AND  COMOX INDIAN MISSION.
Faster Day.—This evening I admitted six Indians by public
baptism into the -ark of Christ's Church. It was a solemn occasion,
and one of which T .hope never to be ashamed in.days to come.
May Almighty God have them all in His holy keeping, for they will
have many temptations and a hard fight.
April 12th.—One or two Indians who have long been sick have at
last been released from suffering and are dead. Death is making many
gaps amongst this fated people, and soon all the old generation will
have passed away, and with it the old habits and superstitions of them
and their forefathers ; to be succeeded by others speaking our language,
adopting our habits, and possessing our faith.
April 24:th.—They were a wild-looking set, and a strange mixture,
curiously clad, yet eager, attentive, and anxious for me to go again.
With them it is indeed " a day of small things."
May 1st.—This afternoon I found my poor old Indian friend, who
when-well was never absent from the afternoon service, lying sick and
in a dying state. We held service in his • house, and knowing his
patience and daily habits of prayer, and his evident faith in the Blessed
Trinity, at his request I baptized him by the name of " Simeon."
May he now "depart in peace," having, we trust, seen the salvation
of God
Administered private eommunion to Jane Ichrey, a catechumen lately
baptized, but evidently dying from consumption. " It was good to be
there," and no one would have believed, three years ago, that such a
transformation of character could have been effected in one so depraved.
Who then, should doubt God's grace and power to save 1
May 2d.—Went up to the Indianreserve and saw several sick people.
Amongst others " the chief " or " Simeon," whom I found in a state of
great tranquillity, and who was arranging all his affairs, like a patriarch'
of old, before his expected departure. He gave away all his property this
afternoon to his old friends, even to the planks of his house.: as there
is no one left to him to inherit his effects.
He died in great peace on the morrow. May God in His infinite
mercy, and for - His dear Son's sake, accept my labour of love in
receiving him into the fold of Christ, and receive Ms soul into everlasting habitations.
This faithful and attached friend of the Mission met his death, accidentally we believe, yesterday, whilst hunting with his friends for

deer on their way to the seshel patiatch." He was shot'by a man who
fired at the flying game, and had only just time to cry out, " Ahn a
nee," (" I am shot,") before he was dead. The whole party returned in
sorrow,- and it was a sad spectacle. The wailing of his wife and
daughters was terrible to witness and most distressing to hear.
We buried him with all the honours we could bestow on his remains,
using those chants he loved so well when on earth. It was touching
to witness the sorrow spread over all faces and the concern of the
whole tribe over this unexpected catastrophe.' But for our influence,
however, I am persuaded the man who did it would have been shot
in turn.
May 7 th.—This evening Nanaimo was startled by the arrival of a
canoe with' two wounded men, and another who had almost miraculously escaped slaughter at the hands of a treacherous tribe of Indians
called Chilcoaten, B.C., when fourteen of their fellow-workmen were
murdered in cold blood whilst quietly sleeping in their tents without
fear of evil. I did all I could for the poor fellows, who were suffering
dreadfully from their wounds. A most painful state of excitement
pervades the whole town. The shockingly sudden death of so many
whites and Indians seems to have cast a gloom over every mind.
We felt in the afternoon service in the mission chapel as though our
hearts were too sick for talk. We could only pray and comfort one
June 21st.—Archdeacon Wright and myself got off at nine a. m. in
a fine canoe, with a crew of five Indians and my boy Louis, son of
Skenahandeceared. We reached Comox at half-past one the foUowing
day. Our time was spent' in visiting the settlers, locating a spot for
the Mission Chapel, making arrangements for the permanent residence
of a missionary catechist in that settlement.
July 8th.—Mr. Cave left for Comox to act as lay catechist for that
district. The Church having purchased a mission farm of some seventy
acres, beautifully situated at the head of river navigation, Mr. Cave
will reside temporarily in a small hut already built upon it, until a
house can be erected for his use contiguous to the proposed mission
■ At ten a.m. I proceeded to the spot on wMch the new buildings are to
be erected, and after reading the 127th Psalm, and offering up appropriate prayers for the occasion, I inserted into the side of the first log a
paper containing the following inscription :—" In the name of the Holy
and undivided Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen. We
erect this Mission Chapel for the purpose of the worsMp and service
of Almighty God, and for the instruction of the young, during the
episcopate of the Right Rev. Father in God, Geo. Hills, Bishop of
Columbia, Vancouver, the Rev. J. B. Good, Missionary Incumbent of
Nanaimo and Comox districts, and J. C. B. Cave, missionary catechist r
at Coinox, this 25th day of August, in the year of our Lord One
Thousand Eight Hundred and Sixty-four."
Extracted from a letter to Mr. Good from Mr. Cave at Comox.
" On the 10th of February I was called in to visit an Indian woman
who had been poisoned by one of her tribe. I found her very ill, but
in a quiet frame of mind. She told me that she felt she must shortly
die, and believed she had been poisoned. She stated further, through
an interpreter, that she loved to goto church; and before her husband
was shot he was a bad man, but is now changed and wants to know
about the good wav Dr. Woods and Mr. Good told him of long ago.
She said also, 11 always say my prayers to Jesus; I thank bfm for dying
for me, I now go to Him. You must soon come to see me. My baby
was born a month ago. I was quite well, too, soon after, but now I
am going to die, and want you to tell me if that good place is for me.
Indians do not believe that women go to heaven, but Mr. Good told
all the Indians that all who are good go.' I then spoke to her, and asked
her if she had been baptized 1 She said no, but would like to be so.
I then, after a long conversation with her, baptized her, before her
friends, saying, i Susan, I baptize thee in the name of the Father and
of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.' After this I visited her
three times and found her quite happy. She died on the evening of
the 14th."

While out walking this afternoon (Sunday, March 13, 1864), I
heard singing, evidently in a devout strain, and so turned my steps in
that direction, hoping to find some one praying, and to my great surprise and delight I found an Indian camp some distance off, where they
were all going through the service. I was invited to come in, but preferred looking on, and promised to come next Sunday if they were still
Mr. Good baptized six adults this evening (Easter Day, March 27",
1864), and received them into the Church, viz. Annie Hossit, Mary MISSION HOUSE AND CHAPEL BEE. S3
Chappell, Adelaide Jane, Louis Augustine, Ellen and Sarah. The two
last are two that have been notorious evil livers, more so than the rest ;
but, we trust, are now sincere and will continue to walk in the right
road. But poor Jessy, whom we baptized three Sundays ago, is indeed
a true Christian, and seemed to feel being admitted into Christ's fold
more than any of the rest, with the exception of Annie. Mr. Good
preached to a crowded congregation from Acts ii. 47.
Went up to the Indian camp (Nanaimo) at ten a. m., and worked
on the fence till half-past one. Several of the little children helped
me to carry the pickets, and were playing round all the time. When
a person thinks what these children were before any one tried to instil
into them the necessity of cleanliness, and sees them even now, he cannot
help feeling that missionary enterprise has done a great deal for the
community already, though much remains to be done.
It is a year ago to-day since the Bishop left in the Devastation for
Metlakatla mission. Mr. and Mrs. N. also went down per Otter to
Victoria, and all the people were working, stores open, and everything
making it very hard to believe it was Good Friday; but this year, how
different! There is not a sound of work, but our church was well
attended and every one dressed in their Sunday best.
I was much delighted and encouraged by the appearance of the school
children at the Indian camp this morning. We had twenty-one
children, eleven girls and ten boys, and, with two exceptions, all beautifully clean. I trust our labours amongst them will ere long be very
visible. There are in course of erection two nice houses, one close on
to the Milbran land, and the other in a central position, both building
as near as Indians can build after the wMte men's style. They call
them King George-man's houses.
On arriving from Sliveis this morning I found the yard around the
door swarming with Comox Indians, (heathen) who had come to take
the pledge. After a long conversation with them on the meaning of
" signing the pledge," assuring them it was not a thing to do lightly, I
gave to them a paper as follows : " I promise, through the blessing
of God, to abstain from all intoxicating liquor, and will do my best to
preserve order in the camp and keep away all whisky."
At eight a.m. September 14, ten of the settlers assembled to put up
the building. There were five men on the building, and three on the
ground, and two inside. The logs went up well, and without a single
murmur from one present. I was busily engaged all morning cooking
and arranging house, collecting together plates, &c. for them, and at
twelve o'clock they all sat down to a fried salmon, with onion sauce, and
two large vegetable dishes full of potatoes. They all went to work agahr
after dinner, and finished all the building, with the exception of the
two top logs, right round. At six o'clock they all came in again and
had tea. After the meal I detained them for some fifteen minutes in
a short address, in which I said I should not fail to let the Archdeacon
and Mr. Good know the kind feeling and congeniality which prevailed
amongst them, and which were so essential to a new settlement.
They retired at half-past seven o'clock.
Last Sunday morning we had service in the house of one of the
settlers. I am sorry to say he was not quite sober. The subject was-
my favourite one, viz. "Doing all we can." I was explaining that
God regards the weakest of his followers as much as that of the
strongest, and referred to Mary, who did all she could for the Saviour,
and got His commendation—" She hath done what she could."    Here,
 , who had been an attentive listener, got up and went out.  After
service, he came back and said, I was too personal, and he did not
like his woman, Mary, to be praised before a crowd.'
Our services on last Sunday were quite a success. There were only-
three in the whole settlement who did not attend once during the day.
One of these was .poor -, who kept Sunday for Saturday, and did
not find out Ms mistake till Monday evening, when he went down to
Oliver's, as he thought, for service.
In the summer of 1864 an exploring expedition was fitted out at
the joint expense of the Government and private subscribers—the
Governor giving one dollar for every dollar raised by voluntary1
contribution. After some delays incident to the preliminary arrangements, the expedition started under the command of Dr. Brown.
Time passed on, and the body of hardy men who had gone forth to
climb the inhospitable mountains and penetrate the dense forests hi
search of Mdden wealth, were beginning to be less thought of than
when first they set out. The subscribers to the enterprise, myself
among the number, felt an unmistakable uneasiness lest the whole
seheme should prove abortive. The foes of our island home talked
freely of her sterility and lack of resources; her' friends feared to
praise her lest the trial now being made should contradict their words;
Thus things looked sufficiently gloomy, when a despatch arrived from
Dr. Brown announcing the discovery of gold in paying quantities on MINISTERIAL RESPONSIBILITY—THE ALEXANDRA—SOOKE.    35:
a'river named "Leech," after the surveyor of the party, and second
in command, who was the fortunate discoverer of the gold-bearing
character of the river.
It is altogether vain to attempt to describe the violence of the
effect produced in Victoria by this news. The corners of the streets
are crowded with busy talkers, all discussing the probable value of the.
report. The wharves are thronged with bags of flour, picks, shovels,
blankets, men, tins, kettles, frying-pans, prospecting-pans, cases of
liquor, bacon, Indians, and what not. Steamers plough their eager.
way through the briny deep to Sooke laden with clerks, miners, shopkeepers, doctors, jewellers, Chinamen, and all sorts. Adventurous
spirits attempt the woods, and, regardless of bears and briers, strike
for the supposed goal of all their earthly hopes by the compass without a chart. Life, bustle, activity, din, meet you at every quarter.
But when one evening the steamer arrived from Sooke bearing the
finder of the seventy-dollar nugget—an oblong lump of gold about as"
big as a small egg—then the excitement knew no bounds. The fortunate possessor of the lucky lump was almost torn in pieees by the
wild and ungoverned mob who crowded, crushed, jostled, and cried to
endeavour to get a view both of the nugget and its owner. The city
of Victoria speedily became almost deserted—it migrated to Sooke !
Three different town sites were laid out at Sooke, and " Lots for sale "
quickly advertised; prudent, men, however, did not invest their
money very largely in these articles.
This sudden rush rendered it necessary that some clergyman should
be deputed to follow these wanderers, and endeavour to remind them
of the " true riches " in the midst of their eager and wild pursuit of
those wMch perish. In the absence of the Bishop and Archdeacon,
we held a sort of informal clerical synod, and, after due consultation, I
resolved to try whether I could reach the mines and gain a hearing
for my message.
Possessed of the necessary articles for a very indefinite journey, as I
knew neither the country nor distance, facilities for food, or other particulars, which will be allowed by most people to be of at least some
importance, I embarked on board the Alexandra for Sooke. She is a
powerful stern-wheel steamer of great speed. .A mixed company of
miners, excursionists, and adventurers were entertained by the efforts
of a small band composed principally of Germans, who, after the first
three or four pieces, forgot their art, and allowed the excursionists to
entertain themselves as best they could.
A land-locked basin of shallow water with a narrow serpentine
channel, represented by the owners of the three different town-sites as
being deep and easy of navigation for large vessels, and near to each
proposed site,—this wonderful mud-bottomed pool is Sooke harbour !
The Alexandra blew her whistle, and, though flat-bottomed, touched
the mud. She backed off, however, and went to another place ; there
she landed us in boats, not venturing near the wharf, on which a piece
of a flour-sack fluttered for a flag ! Launched in a canoe, we set off up
the river, desiring to reach a house from wMch the trail was said to
start. We grounded, but our bare-legged Indian shouting " shasham,"
"it's shallow," with muscular arm shoved us off, and soon landed us
at our destination; receiving half a dollar for his trouble (the distance
was about half a mile), he meekly pointed to the partner of his sorrows,
who, with averted countenance, sat in the bow of the canoe, and required an extra quarter, as she had exhaled salmon odours during the
whole of the voyage. I shook my head, however, and left him to
console the lady with native eloquence.
There is a small portion of good land on the south side of Sooke
harbour, but the general character of the country is rugged and inhospitable. Steep rocky mountains climb up towards the sky, their base
thickly covered with heavy pine, and the valleys between filled to
repletion with pine and cedar, the latter predominating where there is
most moisture. There is, I fear, but little land in that region available for agriculture without a very heavy outlay.
The trail I was to travel was simply the impression left by the
excited crowd upon the wild face of nature. No axe had been laid
upon a tree to mark it out from others. With that Mnd of instinct
peculiar to adventurers in new countries, each succeeding traveller
detected the footmark of his predecessor, and felt confident he was
right. I pressed on, now up a steep mountain side, now down a precipitous descent, now along the bed of the river, again climbing high
on succeeding ledges of rock. The river looked like a thread of silver
below, while, unable to turn back from the narrowness of my foot-hold,
I feared to look down, and could not without the greatest difficulty and
•caution continue the ascent. The summit gained, presently all footmarks cease, and the setting sun tells of the approach of night. My
pack laid down marks the spot already reached, while with anxious
gaze I traverse round as far as I dare venture, to try and discover some
token by which to guide my progress. At length a broken branch
rewards my diligence. Close examination reveals the sallal plant
crushed by many feet, its berries gone, and unbarked surface exposed
to view. My dog (faithful companion of my solitude) has already
found the track, and with wagging tail trots along to induce me to
follow.    My pack regained, with thankful spirit I set forward.
The slanting ray from the western sky has drawn out the shadows
to their utmost limit; and, as I have now returned to the river, I am
resolved to stop for the night.    A fire is speedily lighted, a piece of DIVINE SERVICE—iHOMEWARD-BOUND—ILLNESS. 37
bread, a sandwich, and a cup of tea distilled in a tin pannikin for my
repast. This done, I spread myself upon the sallal, nestled close up
to the root of a gigantic pine; my head pillowed upon a fallen log,
I compose myself to sleep. I cannot but think of those at home,
how little they know where I am or how situated! " The roseate
hues of early dawn " arouse me from my verdant couch. A cup of
Chinese infusion and a sandwich are speedily discussed, and I am off.
Three hours' walking brought me to the gold commissioner's tent at
Leech river. A rocky stream with little water, huge boulders, a bedrock washed for the most part smooth, but with frequent crevices in
which the precious metal is successfully sought, and banks encumbered
with towering pines, giant cedars, and rugged overhanging mountains.
Such is Leech river. It tells of a short and rapid course through a
mountain region, abounding in slaty and quartz formations, of frequent
freshets and tremendous water power at such times. That gold in
abundance will yet be discovered^somewhere near, does not, I think,
admit of reasonable doubt.
The news of my arrival quickly spread. After an hour's rest, I
went up the river for about a. mile and visited the various camps,
Inviting them to join me in divine worsMp. I found none at work,
all respectful, and many really glad of the opportunity afforded. I
returned to the commissioner's tent. At eleven o'clock I took my
stand under the double shade of a spreading cedar and a friend! r
maple, whose broad leaves, fanned by the gentle breeze, added a,
pleasing accompaniment to our forest psalmody. The congregaticn
assemble and take their seats npon the pebbly bank of the river, or
the dusty turf or fallen logs, according as the taste of each dictates. I
soon discovered no less than four of my Christ Church choir present.
They lent their aid with a hearty good will, and the woods rang again
to the unwonted sounds. I never preached to a more attentive
audience.    May the seed thus sown bring forth an abundant harvest.
After some anxious consultation as to the best way of returning
home, I resolved to strike through the woods by compass for Victoria.
Four adventurous spirits were found to accompany me, and at five
o'clock on Monday morning we set out. A bottle of water, a sandwich, and some bread and cheese for luncheon, was all we thought it
necessary or prudent to carry, as any weight would have rendered it
impossible for us to penetrate the tMckets and overcome the difficulties
of the journey.
We had not travelled far when I was attacked with a violent illness.
Many a time I was ready to lie down and say " Go on, I cannot travel
farther; " but then the thought of home and wife and little ones—what
pangs of anguish they would endure if the evil tidings reached them
that I had been left behind in the forest unable to travel—roused me
again to renewed effort.    What I suffered for seven hours need not be .<*?"
described—walking, climbing, stumbling, falling, 'tearing through
thickets, leaping logs, and dragging weary and enfeebled legs through
underbrush—all- these things can be better imagined than explained.
One of my companions, an Irishman, shouldered my pack and carried it till night. Were it not for this I must have left it behind. He
was a noble fellow, and led the party well all the forenoon.
About one o'clock I began to improve, and under the Divine blessing
rapidly regained strength. I began now to brighten up, and to take
more knowledge of our line of march.
Our course from Leech river was about north-east. We had hitherto
been following an occasional blaze or axe-mark on the trees, which had
been made by another party who had gone through. At three o'clock
in the afternoon, having now been incessantly on the tramp for ten
hours, all were getting pretty tired, when, on examining our bearings,
I found that we were travelling due south instead of north-east, and
that, therefore, we could never reach Victoria by that route.. I held a
council. Some were for going on after this imaginary blaze, which we
could not trace any farther; some were for lying down where we were;
and two out of the four readily agreed with me, that we must immediately travel by compass only, and wheel to the north-east without
delay. After some little loss of time the minority gave in. I then
took the head of the party, and, with an energy of nerve and limb
which surprised some, I led them for two hours, when we came on the
bed of a river; altogether dry, but exhibiting by its drift the comforting evidence of a current flowing north-east. We again consulted,
and agreed to follow the stream to its mouth. Off we started, over
boulders, round, through, under natural bridges of drift wood, down
precipices, and through caverns, till at length we came to the foot of
a steep conical hill. Two men with keen sight volunteered to ascend
to the summit and survey the prospect. Ere long they returned—they
had seen Victoria! Our souls bounded, but it was from fifteen to
five-and-twenty miles off; this damped our joy. On again, the
lengthening shadows warned of coining night, and diminished cheese
told of short supplies. We pressed yet forward down the rugged bed
of our friendly stream; our wary but jaded feet often reminded us of
the perilous character of our footing. At half-past seven I found a
stake driven into the bed of the river, squared and inscribed " Eureka."
A shout burst uncontrolled from every one as he reached the spot. We
were close to Gold Stream, just twelve miles from 'Victoria. We
pushed yet on, confident now of reaching home if once we could gain
. the Cowichen Road.
Night was- rapidly closing round when we reached a gigantic bush-
fire, which spread on all sides.    There was now so much water in the
river that we were obliged to traverse the banks.    I recognised the
■ country, the formation of the hills, and general-character of the surface A
as being the vicinity of Gold Stream and the Cowichen Road. The
fire was now in front, stretching far away both to the right and left.
We must penetrate the burning mass and brave the smoke and dangers
from falling trees and crackling underbrush. We summoned all our
energy and made a desperate onset. Begrimed with soot, half
smothered, and literally bathed in sweat, we got safely through ; but
alas ! we had crossed the road in our hurry, and therefore wandered
altogether at fault in the fast-fading twilight. After consultation we
determined to regain the river, as that alone was safe from fire, and
await the dawn. By a long detour we struck the stream; a dry portion of its bed served us for a couch,' and a friendly drift-pile supplied
us with fuel. After fifteen hours of incessant work we stretched our
weary frames upon the stones; and never monarch slept on bed of
roses with more sweet repose. The morning's light revealed -our path
hard by our pillows; a shout of joyful thanksgiving, and we set off for

Delivered at the Town Hall, Brighton, Thursday,. December 22,1864.   lieutenant-
Colonel Monson in the Chair;
Doubtless, in the present state of knowledge, this question does not
admit of a definite answer. Yet I think various things go to show
that America has been peopled by a race of men coming from Asia,
and belonging to the great Turanian family-; the diversities observable
among their various tribes—the Esquimaux of the North, the Caribs
of the Bahamas, and the Mexicans of the South—being due to the
difference of temperature, climate, habits, and food.
Those on the extreme west are muscular and broad-built. They
have all the same type of countenance—very broad flat face, broad flat
nose, bright and intelligent eye, and long, black, straight hair, coming
down, if not cut, to their shoulders, thick and coarse as the mane of
a horse. The only physical peculiarity in which they differ from
Europeans is this. The aperture in the hair of a European when cut
js round; the aperture in the case of the North American Indian is
not round, but oblong; and in one race of the human family—the
Malays—the aperture is elliptical. 4
In Prescott's History of Mexico, Montezuma told Cortez of a tradition of the Aztecs—that they had not been long in Mexico, but had
been brought there in former days by a great hero; that they had
come over the sea, and had seen white men in times gone by. Now
"Quetz-al-Coatl" means "Lord of the Seven Caves." Many conjectures were made as to this tradition, and it was thought, with some
plausibility, that they had come down the coast from the Aleutian
Islands; which, like a series of stepping-stones, lie between the two
continents of America and Asia. The inhabitants of the Aleutian
Islands five in caves to this day.
captain maury's opinion.
Captain Maury, of the United States Navy, a noble-minded, clever;
and brave man, is strongly convinced that this was the road by which
the Aborigines entered America. He mentions that there is a, current
through those islands which would of itself assist "greatly the migration.
Eurther, there is no wood on the islands themselves, and the canoes of"
the natives are made of camphor-wood, which is brought across by the-
current from Asia. The natives hollow out the trunks, put dams of
mud at each end, stick up a bough for a sail, and proceed with th&
current at the rate of three or four miles an hour.
indications op this origin.  .
The Mexicans were acquainted with the forms of animals which
were not known in America, and never lived there, but which existed
in Asia.   They recognised pictures of these animals on seeing them.
They use hieroglyphics, or picture writings, analogous to those of Asia*
They are accustomed to the pyramidal form of building also found
in Asia.
In matters of religion, their ideas concerning the Great "Unseen aro
exactly the same as those of the great Mongolian race of Asia.
In the Bahamas, hatchets of jade:—a species of marble not found
there—have been discovered. The natives say they have been brought
there by the people who first inhabited the islands, probably from
Mexico, or even from Asia.
It is therefore highly probable that the North American Indians
reached their present home by way of the Aleutian Islands.
The general characteristic of Indian tradition is this:—There is a
basis of truth; you see something which is good and true, and reminds
you of Holy Scripture, and then the tradition runs off into something
absurd and ludicrous.
They say there are two Spirits—the good and the bad. The good
Spirit made the earth and peopled it. But he became angry with the
people of the earth, and plunged the world into a great lake, and kept
it there until all the people were drowned. He then lifted it out again,
and he made a man and gave him a sister, and sent a dream to the THE FOUR SPIRITS. 4£
young man, which he was to tell to his sister. The dream was, that
there would come to her five suitors; she was to reject the first four
and accept the fifth. The first was called Tobacco; the second, Melon;
the third, Pumpkin; and the fourth, Beam And she rejected them all,
and the poor fellows died. Then came the fifth, that was Mondamin,
the Indian corn. She married him, and it was from their marriage
the Indians sprang. But Mondamin, being of a peculiar turn of mind
or else benevolent, said, " Don't let the corpses lie there, but bury
them." They buried them, and presently up came melons, pumpkins,
and beans out of the ground for the support of the Indians.
■ Such is the character of their traditions. It begins all very well.
It reminds one of the deluge, and of the creation of man, and then
runs off into something absurd.
They say that a long time ago two women—they don't say who
they were or where they came from—were looking up into the blue
sky, and thinking how beautiful it was, and how much they would
like to be up there. While thus they meditated they fell asleep, and
were carried up to the sky while they slept. When they awoke they
found themselves among the wonderful and glorious inhabitants of
those celestial regions. With them they married. However, being
fickle and capricious, as time went on they regretted their having left
the old country below and their old pursuits. They thought they
should like to get back again to the earth. One day, while they were
walking out in the celestial fields, they saw a plant, the onion, which
they knew and had seen in Vancouver's Island. They pulled up the
onion, and, to their amazement, saw there was a hole in the ground to
which the onion had fitted as a plug. And they looked down through
the hole and saw the old country. They were much delighted,, and
the only question with them was, how to get back there. So they set
to work, and made ropes of the fibre of the cedar. When they thought
they had sufficient, they pulled tip the onion again and let down the
rope. They found it was too short, so they went back and made it
longer, until at last it just reached the earth. Then they tucked their
blankets round them, and descended by the rope to the earth. They
feared pursuit, so they seized the end of the rope, and shook it about
till the upper end came loose and the whole fell. Erom this union
with the skies sprang the Indians. They firmly believe this, though
it looks very like the old Chinese story of Jack and the Bean Stalk.
Dull, dark, and confused are their ideas of the processes of Nature.
Eor example, they think there are four great spirits. One lives in the
South, another in the North, a third in the East, and a fourth in the
West. The spirit of the North sends them ice and snow. The spirit
of the South sends them melons, maize, and tobacco; the spirit of
the West sends them rain for the crops; and the spirit of the East
sends light.
The only reliable traditions are those of comparatively late date. w
One day some of the Indians were on the beach, and as they looked
seaward they saw a huge canoe coming up like a number of great
trees. They ran down to the sea-side, the people came out of the
canoe, and they were pale faces. The Indians had never seen any pale
faces before, but they were friendly, and walked inland together.
Then the pale faces wanted food, and they took a stick and pointed it
at a bird. 'There was thunder and the bird fell down, and the Indians
around all died. The pale faces then wanted to cook the bird. When
the Indians wanted to cook, they took a couple of sticks and rubbed
them until the fire came; but these pale faces got a bit of stone and
a bit of metal, struck the one on the other, and there was the fire, and
the Indians all died. The Indians were wont to heat water in bowls
of wood, by dropping red-hot stones into it. But the pale faces put
the pot on the fire, and the Indians expected it would be burnt. But
no. They looked and looked, but the pot was not burnt; the water
began to boil, and the Indians all died.
Their religion is not so much polytheism as pantheism. They believe
that God is everything, and that everything is God; or rather that
everything is a God Eor instance—they suppose the sun and moon to
be intelligent creatures; and, as man has a soul and body, so the sun
and moon have a soul and body. And when the sun and moon move
across the heavens, the Indians think they are doing so purposely, and
their only perplexity is to know what they are doing when they are
" down there somewhere."
The Indian sees a spirit in everything. When he goes out fishing
he prays to the spirit of the sun. If the waves rise about him, he
prays to the spirit of the waves not to engulph him; and if he .is
thrown near a rock, he prays to the spirit of the rock that his canoe
may not be dashed upon it.
There are also local deities or genii in every place. There is a god
of every creek and river.
• Once the god of the Naas River was very angry with the Indians
who had caught some salmon, and had not put them to death at once,
but had tortured them. Therefore he determined to destroy the
Indians. They all fled away, except one woman. The god of the
river detached a large piece of the mountain, and made it fall into
the river, which then rose up to the village, which was destroyed, and
the woman was drowned. And even now they point up to a part of
the rock where there seems to be a woman; it is as much like a
woman as anything else.
Here you see singularly mixed up the old tradition of the Indians
and the -Scriptural record of the flood and Lot's wife.    And I may . INITIATION—COURSE OP THE FIVE GARMENTS. \ 43
mention by the way, that in every Indian tribe they have preserved a
tradition more or less distinct or distorted of a deluge.
I am rather sceptical as to their ideas about Monotheism. I am
inclined to think that their present ideas as to one Supreme Being
have been derived, perhaps through many hands, from the whites—
from the Americans-or Russians. The universality, however, of their
■tradition respecting the flood, I do firmly believe, and consider to be a
most singular fact.
Thus you observe their belief is a sort of spirit-worship. They
see a spirit in every element of nature. In all the rocks', caves, and
trees, they think there is something supernatural, something belonging
to another world.
This belief in spirits produces much superstitious fear. The Indian
is always full of awe, as he thinks those spirits are always about him.
He does not understand them, and everything seems to bi-m full of
mystery. Thus, in the woods, in solitude, in darkness, he is always
pursued by this awe, always subject to this fear.
We have heard' of priestcraft .among the nations of Europe, and it
is often a word of terrible meaning; but no people that "I know of
have been so much under the dominion of priestcraft as these poor
North American Indians. The priests, "Medicine Men," or "Powwows," as they are variously called, form about one-tenth of the whole
community. They are supposed to have certain special endowments,
which the other Indians have not. This is often hereditary. The
.medicine-man's son is generally brought up as a medicine-man, but
not always.
Sometimes the Indians wuT bring their children to be initiated.
They bring them with presents to the priests, and then the poor little
things are initiated in a long course of training. The initiation begins
when they are about seven years old, and continues to the age of
puberty. During this they have to undergo periods of retirement,
meditation, and fasting.
Those who are to be medicine-men have to undergo a special course,
called the course of the five garments. The lad has to go into the
woods and fast in a lonely place in the midst of the forest. He is
clad in a garment made of bark, and always wears the wampum belt,
made of cedar. He has to remain out till invited by some Indian to
come to his house and partake of food. When this happens, he throws
off that suit and puts another on, and again do'es the same thing, until
the five courses are completed. And then comes the strictest, fast of
all, and it is during this last fast that the young Indian has his
^ guardian spirit revealed to him. I
Whatever he dreams of during this period he takes as the object of
his worship; and he always wears a symbol of that supposed deity
about him—generally in his cap. If he dreams of a salmon, he wears
a fin; and if of a bird, a feather, and so on.
A long time ago a poor Indian lived on the outskirts of the forest,
with his wife and family. He was a brave and industrious man, but
unsuccessful in hunting, and so they were very poor.
The time came when the eldest son had to undergo the great fast.
His mother made for him an arbour of boughs on the outskirts of the
son's reflections.
The first day he wandered there among the flowers, and thought
how beautiful they were, and how good the spirit was who made all
these things. He then reflected on the abjectness and misery of his
fellow-Indians. He knew how great their sorrows were. He saw how
their life was one continuous struggle with starvation, and he longed
to discover something to do them good.
The third day he had become very weak, when, in the evening, he
suddenly saw before him a young man clothed in green garments, with
a beautiful green plume coming out of his head and drooping down
over his shoulders. The young man said, " Get up and wrestle with
me." He got up, weak as he was, and did his best. Then the youth
of the green plume said to him, " To-morrow I will come again." The
next day the poor Indian was weaker still, and could scarcely move.
Presently he saw before him the youth with the green plume, who
said, "Arise and wrestle with me." He could scarcely get up; but
when he grasped hold of the young man, he seemed to gain fresh
strength. They wrestled together. At length thus spoke the youth
of the green plume : " That is enough for this time. I foresee you
will overcome me. Your father will bring you food to-morrow, and
you must partake of it sparingly. I see you will prevail over me, and
I shall die. And when I am dead, bury me in the ground, and keep
my grave clean and in repair; pluck out all the roots and weeds, and
every month bring fresh soil, and put it over where I lie. I know
what your ambition is, and you will prevail."
On the fifth day, his father brought him some food; but the son
said, " No; I have done without it so far, and I will do without it
still." In the evening, the youth of the green plume again stood
before him. Weak though he was, he again wrestled, and at last
threw him. The youth of the green plume died. The Indian carried
out the body and buried it, partook of food, and returned to his
family. He said nothing about what had occurred; but every week
he went out to visit the grave and keep it clean; and every month he
brought fresh soil, and put it over where the body lay.   And behold, THE BLUE BIRD—THE MURDERER'S CONFESSION.. 45
after some weeks, the showers came down, and he saw the tops of the
beautiful green plumes just peeping above the ground. As time
advanced, they got higher and higher, and week after week, and month
after month, the green plumes continued to spring up. The autumn
came, and the leaves turned yellow, and he saw before him a tree full
of beautiful yellow fruit or corn. Then he went and fetched his father,
and when he saw this lovely plant with bright golden ears, he said,
" Mondamin—the Spirit of the Corn."
The medicine-men, in order to retain their influence over the people,
are compelled to have recourse to various devices. They teach the
people, therefore, that they have spirits within them; and in many
eases, in order to frighten the people into subjection, they proceed to
fearful extremities. The medicine-men may be divided into three
classes: those who eat human flesh, those who eat dog's, and those
who do not eat either. Women are admitted to the two last classes,
but not to the first.
In every tribe there are two, three or' four cannibals. Those are
the chief medicine-men, who feel they must keep up a terror in the
minds of the people.
When they feel their power on the wane, they say, the " Nock-
nock " within them wants and must have food. The Indians know
what it means, and dismay spreads among all ranks. The medicinemen have been secretly told that some one has died, and they rush
about the village in wild excitement, pretending to scent out the
eorpse, till they find it, when they break open the box and devour
the body!
They have some curious secrets, or conjuring tricks, which they
hand down from one generation to another. They have meetings
among the tribes, when they show off their tricks. They will stand
on the fire, grasp red-hot iron, thrust a spear down a boy's throat, and
so forth.
Some officers of the Hudson's Bay Company witnessed the following
trick. They went into a large hut. A fire was burning on the
earthen floor, and a hole just above it, in the roof, allowed the smoke
to escape. The medicine-men sat round the fire. One of them got up
and began whistling; presently he got into a sort of cadence; and
soon after there was a fluttering just outside the hole in the roof, and
they saw a little- blue bird come down into the hut and fall into the
fire. They could not tell by what agency the medicine-man managed it.
It not unfrequently happens that, when they are dying, if not
before, the medicine-men will tell the truth, as regards these lying
wonders.   I recollect a case of this kind which occurred last winter r~
at New Westminster.    I was then acting as chaplain to the gaol; and j
a medicine-man was sent down from Queen Charlotte's Island for
murder.    He was tried and found guilty.    Before he was certain of.
being hanged he was as self-confident as possible, and he used to tell!
me what he could do.    When I told him that he was going to be
hung, he said, "Ah, we shall see; you shall see what will come to
pass.    If the civil powers will take me out, the rain will come down"-
—it had been a very dry season—" and the wind will blow, fire will'
run along the ground, and you will see me floating along in the air,
with my head down."    However, when the time came, and he was led
out to be executed, there was a very different scene then."   Very eafly
in the morning, while the snow fell, I ascended the scaffold with him,
and then he spoke out.    He was not afraid of death, and he spoke out
firmly and boldly to all the Indians present.    He told them it was
that foul medicine work which had brought him to that state; that-
his heart was bad; that the medicine work had ruined him, and he
advised them to have nothing more to do with it.    These words had
a great effect on the Indians.
In other instances we allow them to retain some of their old eustoms^
but with everything superstitious taken away. Thus they retain their
great dances. Not long ago, I went to one of these. We went into
a large room in Shimlahu's house. He is the chief. Two or three-
hundred of the people were ranged round the room with their backs to
the wall. Those round the wall were raised on seats, while the priests
sat in the centre. Most of them had sticks in their hands, with which
they beat time and accompanied the singing. There were two fires on
the earthen floor. The first to come out and sing was a young chief;
as he went on, he lifted up his arms now and then, and this caused
the din to be greatly increased, till it became almost deafening. The
old Shimlahu exhibited the remaining activity of his somewhat
stiffened frame in gyrations harmonizing with the melody of the sticks;
while he, again, was followed by a woman who graced the scene with
many wondrous antics.
The Bishop has two plans in operation.
1. The first is to send instructors to pass through their country
from time to time, and teach the Indians as much as possible in short
visits; to tell them the primary truths of Christianity; to exhort them
to temperance and morality; and, more than aught else almost, to lead
them to desire more complete instruction in the way of truth.
This plan is carried out as follows:—During the summer, we
travel through their country, generally on foot. We'have to pack our
horses with provisions—bread, flour, bacon, and beans. Wherever
there are Indians or miners we stop. We then light a fire, prepare
food, and so forth. Afterwards, the Indians gather round, some
twenty or thirty in a body. We agree to have a great meeting
The place being indicated and the time by the position of the sun,
Indian scouts spread over the country to tell the scattered villages of
our presence and intention. As the sun nears his appointed position,
the Indians cbme riding in from all points, in wild and picturesque
bodies. They squat upon the ground, their horses browse on the
grass of the prairie; while we talk to them, and endeavour to teach'
them morality—the men to be sober and temperate, and the women
chaste and obedient.
We endeavour to instruct them in the principal truths of Chris^'
tianity—that there is One God; that the soul is immortal; that people
are happy or miserable hereafter, according as they act in this life;
that the Son of God, Jesus Christj is their good Eriend, who came:
into this world in order to save them.    In short, the Apostles' Creed
forms the basis of instruction in these eases.    We further desire to
Star up in them, a longing for more instruction, in order to make them
receive and welcome the teacheis, vrha will come and live with them,
and build them up in the truth.
They know very well how ignorant they are, and they often compare';
themselves with the whites. At one meeting, a poor fellow shook my
hand very earnestly. He was formerly a terrible savage; and, as he;
stood there, with his black hair all matted together with fish-oil, and
his tanned and painted skin, he looked just like a bronze statue. He
said, " Oh! chief, it is a good thing to know Almighty God: the
Indians do not know Almighty God." He then left in silence. Who
can tell how deep the thought which led to such a statement 1
2. The second plan adopted for their amelioration is,—To establish
rip-fined settlements among them, so that the young as well as the
adults may be educated and brought up as Christians.
About eight years ago a gentleman, sent by the Church Missionary
Society, went out as missionary, to the Indians. By the advice of the
Governor, Sir James Douglas, he went to live among the Tsimpsheans,
a tribe on the mainland, just opposite to Queen Charlotte's Island.
Eor six months he never opened his lips to them until he was
thoroughly acquainted with the language. He was afraid of exposing'
himself, and the eternal truths he was commissioned to teach, to'
ridicule, if he began to speak before he was perfectly able. He therefore gave himself to learning the language, which he did from a young
Indian, who had been instructed by some of the Hudson's Bay
Company people, and who knew English. r
There- were about two thousand Indians. He gathered a school of
the children, and taught English, reading, and writing—his main object
being, however, to inculcate the truths of Christianity. On Sunday
he gathered the adults, preached to them, and endeavoured to make.'
them converts to the faith. So he continued, for about three or four
years, working nobly, patiently, and untiringly.
Of course, many efforts were made to put a stop to his proceeding.
The medicine-men saw he was undermining their system, and tried to
quell him altogether.
At one time, when the school was about to commence, in burst a
furious band of medicine-men headed by the chief, who was deter--
mined to put a stop to the school He said the medicine-men were
going to have a dance and a feast, and the missionary must stop the.
school. Mr. Duncan refused to do so; and the Indians raved and
drew their daggers, and seemed on the point of murdering him.
Doubtless they would have consummated their bloody purpose, had
it not been for the conduct of one unknown friend. This Indian came
and stood behind Mr. Duncan, and held a revolver under his blanket,
and when the threatenings became extreme, and there seemed every
probability of murder, he got the Handle of the revolver and showed it
to Legale, the chief. This, entirely unknown to Mr. Duncan, humanly
speaking, saved his life. Mr. Duncan had a brave, stout English
heart, and, sustained by faith, he stood firm. The Indians baffled left,
and the work of the school proceeded
As time went on he made wonderful progress among them, but the
great difficulty was, that while they were under his instruction, they
were living in the midst of vile and idolatrous practices. The missionary saw this would not do, and so he determined to come Out from
among them and take away his people. He carefully selected a spot
which has since received the name of Metlakatlah, and which was a
good situation for the purpose. He then said to the Indians, " I will
not live amongst you because my heart is very sick. Tou do many bad
things, and medicine work is wicked I shall go to Metlakatlah, and
if you want to come with me you must make up your minds to live
under Christian laws and customs, and leave your medicine work; but
unless you are willing to make these sacrifices you must not come."
There was a great stir among the Indians. None liked to be the
first to go.   At last one family and then another got into the canoe, POLICY OF THE DACOTAHS AND UTES—CONCLUSION. 49
and that evening he had about twenty-five Indians round him. The
next day fifty more came, the day following one hundred, and the
next day one hundred, and in a few weeks he had five hundred
Indians gathered out. Since then the village has gone on prosperously, and now there are about eight hundred Indians there. Metlakatlah is now a Christian village, and Mr. Duncan is its governor.
Sir James Douglas has given him a commission of the peace; he has
now power to prevent whisky selling and smuggling, which is a very
essential thing.
With regard to baptism, the missionary is extremely cautious and
careful. He has never had an Indian baptized who has not been for
three years under his own immediate instruction or observation.
He requires that they should not only be thoroughly informed as to
what Christianity is, but he tests them in all possible ways to see that
they are desirous in their hearts of living according to the holy precepts of the Gospel. He makes them give up all heathen practices and
idolatrous habits, before he allows them to prepare for baptism. In
fact, he has endeavoured as much as possible, and as far as man can
do, to take care that none should be baptized except those who seem
both intellectually and in heart to be thoroughly prepared for that
sacrament. The consequence is, that only just the chosen few are as
yet baptized, which amount to about two hundred.
I know you have often heard that it is impossible to do anything for
these poor creatures—that the Indian dies out wherever the white man
goes. This statement is in a great measure true. But why is it so %
It is because of the sins of the white man. The Indians have learned
our vices, they have contracted habits of intoxication, and their poor
women have been led away by the ungodly white men, who are often
what is called the " pioneers of civilization." They get new diseases,
and learn new vices, and so the poor creatures die out.
These tribes live between California and Salt Lake City. They
have not decreased, and for this reason—they will not have anything
to do with the white man. H an Indian woman go to live with a
white man, they put her to death; and if any children are born of the
Indian woman with a white complexion, they dash their brains out
against the stones, and take the woman* to the midst of the prairie, and
surround her with faggots and burn her to death. This seems cruel;
but it is their policy—their only way of preserving their tribes.
Now, my Christian friends, what are we not bound to do for these
poor creatures, after we, or our fellow-countrymen, have been the cause
of their ruin ?   Look at the fact, that it is because of us and our vices
D 50
that they have decayed. It is a sad thing to think of, but in too many
instances it is true that the coming of the white man, iastead of a
blessing to the poor Indian, has been a curse. Ought we not therefore
to endeavour, that, since they have received evil. from, us, we may also
impart to them some good ? Certainly we shall endeavour to do so if
we value the blessings which we have, and which they have not. If
we be really grateful to Almighty God for having been so signally
blessed, and if we are thankful for His mercies, we shall strive to
make them partakers of the good things He hath bestowedLupom us;.
Yes, Christian brethren, if we love our Christianity, and if we
value it, we shall endeavour to make the knowledge of it known unto
others, that the Lord's kingdom may be promoted; and thus we shall
in a true, and real sense show that we are grateful to Almighty God,
who of His bounteous mercy has spared us the dreadful lot of these
poor Indians, and has called us out of darkness into His marvellous
light. •»
The important subject of Female Education in the colony still
suffers by delay in the erection of a suitable building in Victoria.
The appeal issued by the Bishop during his stay in England has
only realized 112?. Is. and it is feared the Christian Knowledge Society's
grant of 400?. will lapse before anything can be done. 2,000?. is required. The school is still carried on in a wooden building, for which
a rent is paid of 120?. a year. Mrs. Reece, the lady superintendent,
and the Misses Penrice, have continued their valuable labours. There
has been an increase of pupils requiring further accommodation, which
has been provided.
The following appeal was issued by the Bishop, and the list of contributions is appended :— FEMALE EDUCATION IN-COLUMBIA AND VANCOUVER. 51
The Columbia Mission Report for 1863 (Rivingtons) shows that
the Bishop has not succeeded, during his recent visit, in' raising the
necessary funds for carrying on his important work.
One object, at present laid aside, demands special attention, as bearing greatly upon the future well-being of the colony—Provision for
Female Education.
On the Pacific Coast are many families who find it very, difficult to
obtain Governesses or Schools, but who desire anxiously for theic
daughters a sound English Education.
To meet this want, the Bishop has established, in Victoria, an Institution called the Girls' Collegiate School, presided over by three ladies f
but its position is gathered from the following extract, p. 10, Report
for 1863 :—
" It is to be remembered by our friends that the Girls' Collegiate
School, where, as in the Boys' Collegiate School, the children of the
Clergy are instructed free, is held in a wooden building, for which a
rent is paid of 120?. a year. The Bishop is anxious to raise a Special
Fund, 2,000?. to erect a permanent building, and to make this institution efficient for its great objeet of boarding and educating, religiously
and usefully, the rising girlhood of British Western America.
" There is no accommodation for boarders. The Bishop wishes to
connect with it an Asylum for Orphans and Motherless Girls, who,
amidst the vicissitudes of Colonial life, are often cast adrift, homeless
upon the world."
The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge has voted 400?. A
lady has given 50?.; another offers to raise 50?. hoping that others will
strive to collect similar sums.
Contributions may be paid to the account of the Columbia Mission,

The high character of the clergy first sent out has been a subject of
thankfulness to the friends of the Mission. The following instances
of respect in which three of the clergy have been held may not be out
of place here.
[From the British- Columbian.]
May, 1865.
Most of our readers are aware that the Venerable Archdeacon Wright
is about to return to England. The valedictory services were held in
Holy Trinity Church on Sunday morning, when the Archdeacon
preached a most appropriate and impressive sermon to a very large
congregation. At the close of the service the Committees of Holy
Trinity and St. Mary's waited upon the venerable gentleman in the
vestry and presented the following address:—
■; To the Venerable Henry Press Wright, Archdeacon of Columbia.
, Venerable Sir,—We, the church committees of Holy Trinity, New
Westminster, and St. Mary's, Sapperton, near that city, on behalf of
the several congregations we represent, desire to express on your
leaving the scene of your ministerial labour here our abiding sense of
the zeal and earnestness which have distinguished your ministrations-
not only in this neighbourhood but in various parts of the colony. We
acknowledge with grateful feelings the deep interest you have steadily
manifested through the whole of your career amongst us in everything
which could tend to promote the material and spiritual welfare of our
church. Prominent in all educational matters, your views, at once
sound, liberal and practical, have commended themselves to other religious denominations besides our own, and will leave their .mark, and,
we trust, bear fruit abundantly, long after you have ceased to be
among us.
Your journeys and visitations as Archdeacon in charge of all the
weighty matters of the diocese during the Bishop's absence have made
you familiar,not only with the geographical features of the Colony but
with its spiritual wants. The supply of these has ever had your
earnest advocacy, and we trust may still obtain it when (D.V.) you
may reach home.
Receive also our acknowledgment of the hearty readiness with
which you have aided us in every good word and work that could tend
to promote the welfare of British Columbia and its inhabitants, for
your sympathy indeed with everything British Columbian.
We pray that you, your wife and family, may be blessed with a
prosperous return and a happy meeting with all friends at home, and
every temporal and spiritual blessing, and that, when occasion may
permit,  your thoughts may still not unfrequently be turned with "!*y
^friendly reminiscence to that little band of pioneers who are bearing
forward the banner of the cross, the van-guard of civilization, into the
forests of the far west, and who now with many a kindly greeting bid
you heartily farewell
Henry Holbrook, Arthur T. Bttshbt,
Churchwardens of Holy Trinity Church.
Charles Good, H. P. P. Crease, .
F. G. Claudet, W. J. Armstrong,
W. Johnstone, R. Dickinson,
R. Woleendbn,
Church Committee of HolyTrinity,
On behalf of ourselves and the Congregation.
"Robert Ker, Churchwarden of St. Mary's, Sapperton.
Thomas R. Holmes, Alfred R. Howse,
J. Smith, J. Murray,
Church Committe of St. Mary's,
On behalf of ourselves and the Congregation.
Gentlemen,—I thank you with all my heart for the expressions of
kind feeling contained in the address with which you have been
pleased to present me. I know full well that every word it contains
is thoroughly real, and therefore it is that I value the friendly notice
you have taken of my services in this city and colony. Would that
these services had been better worthy of your praise.
It has been my duty to take a deep interest in everything which
could tend to promote the material and spiritual welfare of the Church
of Christ, and I assure you that I shall always esteem it one of the
most pleasing recollections of my life that the little I was permitted to
do with you or for you met with your approval.
Truly sorry am I to leave you. Eain would I have remained with
you; but seeing that a Bishop was about to reside in your city, and
that your able and esteemed Rector would soon be again with you, I
could not but feel that the order of the Minister of War that I should
Teturn to my military duties was a call to more important labour, and
ought therefore at once to be obeyed.
Though absent in body I shall continue with you in spirit, and of
this you may be assured, that my every exertion shall be made at
home to further the well-doing of a colony which has such vast resources, and in which we all take so deep an interest. You truly
observe that my sympathies have been with everything British
Columbian-   I trust that they will never cease to be so.
That God may long bless and continue to you that zeal and devotion
which have gained for the Churchmen of !New Westminster an honourable name throughout the length and breadth of the Diocese, is the
prayer of your grateful brother in Christ, H. P. Wright,
Archdeacon of Columbia.
The Rev. R. J. Dundas, M.A. went out with the Bishop in 1859,
and has laboured earnestly and successfully. He had given himself
for five years, and at the expiration of the term has returned to a
England.     The foMowing  extract from a local paper will show the
deep regret with whieh his departure has been held :—
Upwards of one hundred personal friends and parishioners of the
Rev. R. J. Dundas, late Rector of St. John's Church, assembled last evening in the Chamber of Commerce, to publicly testify their appreciation
of his nrinisterial services. The Hon. R. Einlayson occupied the chair,
and Mr. Sebright Green acted as Secretary. The following address
was read;—
" Reverend and dear Sir,—We, the undersigned members of your
congregation, desire to express, before your departure from this colony,
our deep feeling of sorrow and. regret at losing you from amongst us.
"As our pastor you have been revered and esteemed by us as
thoroughly as you have been beloved by those who, during your residence in Victoria, have enjoyed your personal friendship; and it cannot
be otherwise than with pain that we find the time arrived to bid you
" Wherever your future lot may be cast, whether our earnest desire
and prayer to see you once more amongst us as our rector shall be
gratified, or whether other nearer and dearer ties shall influence you to
remain in England, we feel sure that, so far as opportunity is given,
your labours will redound to the glory of God and the extension of
His kingdom.
" The fruits of your ministration will be long felt in this colony, and
we believe that you will have the satisfaction of bearing with you
throughout fife the feeling that your work amongst us has not been
in vain.
^The uncertainty of life, combined with the various causes which
influence the current of population in a young colony, leads us to feel
that some of us have heard your voice in the pulpit of St. John's
Church for the last time; whether the AUwise and Almighty Disposer
of events will permit any of us to welcome you back, who can say 1
We can only hope. And we feel assured that this, as all other matters,
will be ordered as is best.
" In conclusion, we beg you to accept our hearty wishes for your
happiness and prosperity in this life, and our earnest prayer for your
eternal welfare in the fife to come."
The document bore the signature of all the leading members of the
congregation. The reverend gentleman replied in the following
eloquent terms:—
" My dear Eriends and late Parishioners,—I can hardly tell you in
language that would fully express my feelings, my deep, real gratification at this mark of your appreciation of my labours, and of your
regard towards myself personally.
" ISTo one can look back over a period of work such as mine has
' been, without being painfully conscious of very many shortcomings
and errors in the discharge of his trust.    I know how sadly I have
failed to realize my own ideal standard of what a clergyman ought to
be; I can but affirm that the position I have held for the'l&st five TESTIMONIALS TO .CLERGY OF THE, MISSION. 00
years was not.sought by me; that my belief was .then, and still is, tha£
abler hands might have been found to carry on the work, and that
nothing but the decision of my Bishop, overruling my own judgment,
could have induced me to occupy so important a post in the diocese as
that of Rector of St. Jolnfe. But,I came here simply to do whatever
work he might appoint for me, and I have at least wished to do my
" By for the greater measure of success that has attended the past
working of St. John's is due to the co-operation with myself of the
Churchwardens and Church Committee, I cannot sufficiently thank
them: With them rests the credit of having solved the question,
whether the Church of England, so effective in her work at home as
an Established Church, can succeed as a voluntary communion in these
colonies. Erom the day of the consecration in 1860, St. John's has
been self-supporting: the congregation, receiving no external aid, have
erected the fabric, maintained it in a state of efficiency, lighted it with
gas, supported their minister, and built a rectory-house. I am more
than satisfied with the progress of the two past years. Had I gone
away without seeing the parsonage standing by the church, I should
have felt that one very important feature in my intended work was
unaccomplished. I know that some slight disappointment has been
felt at my own short occupation of it; but the more heartily do I
thank you for having considered, not merely the gratification of your
own kind wishes in respect of myself, but the more important interests
of the Church; and in providing for these you do me a far greater
" I look to you, my friends, to carry on and extend the work you
have begun. I know that I leave your highest interests in the care of
one at whose feet I would gladly have sat as a learner; one whose
praise is in the Church at home, and in Canada, for zeal and ability,
for ripened wisdom and for Christian earnestness. Be his helpers as
you have been mine, and God will prospeT your united efforts.*
" And now once more receive this expression of my affectionate
esteem and gratitude for all your past sympathy, as well as for this
crowning evidence of your friendship and regard. What may be my
future in life, I cannot say; but, whether it be amongst you or separated from you, my prayers shall not be wanting for you and yours,
that the abundant blessing of our Heavenly Eather may be shed around
you for his Son's sake."
The Rev. Mr. Brown has occupied one of the frontier posts in
Rritisii.Colnmbia, and has been an active missionary at the mines of
Cariboo. His incessant labours have broken down his health, and he
is compelled to rest awhile from work. The following address was
presented by his parishioners at Lillooet.'j—
- «To Rev. R. L. C. Brown, M.A.
•" We, the inhabitants of Lillooet, hearing with regret that you are
* Mr. Dundas is succeeded-by the Ven. Archdeacon Gilson, late Archdeacon of
Montreal, now of Vancouver. /^
about to leave here, it would be evidence of want of appreciation on
our .part of charity and goodness if we did not express to you our
gratitude and respect for the earnest, sincere, Christianlike interest
you have always shown since you came among us for our spiritual
welfare; and, though we are bound not to forget your services in this
respect, we shall feel it equally impossible to forget your kind, friendly,
every-day manner towards us, that was so free from pride and airs as it
was genuine and true. We are very glad to hear there is a hope you
may return to us after a time; and with the sincere wish that we may
have the benefit and pleasure of having you to resume your duties
here again, we beg you to accept our grateful esteem, and also the
accompanying purse."
A deputation presented the address.
Mr. Brown is the author of an Essay on the Colony of British
Columbia, which obtained the Government prize.
Since the last Report, two churches have been built in Cariboo, one
at Sapperton, a church and parsonage at Alberni, Mission chapels at
Cowitchen and Comox, a girls' schoolroom at New Westminster, and
a rectory-house at St. John's, Victoria.
A new Mission has been opened about sixty miles up the Mass
River, amongst the Chymsean Indians. The Rev. R. Doolan has
removed thither from Metlakatlah. There are about 1,500 in the Eass
tribes and then connexions inland. The Bishop of Columbia visited
them in 1863, and subsequently baptized Nishakigh, a chieftainess of
the Hass tribe, who had been several years under instruction, and who
expressed anxiety for the spiritual welfare of her people.
Two hundred and fifty miles to the north of the Church of England
Mission at Metlakatlah is the Russian settlement of Sitka, where resides
a Bishop and several clergy. The Mission to the Indians of the
Aleutian Islands was commenced, in 1756, by Andrian Tolstich. There
are schools and churches amongst the Indians.
Russian ships have recently begun to visit Victoria from Sitka, and
it is_expected there will be increasing intercourse.
The proposed boundary divides the present Diocese into Western
and Eastern portions. A watershed running nearly north and south
divides, from the basin of the Fraser the north-west of Columbia,
which is only separated from Vancouver by a strait about a mile and ITEMS OF THE MISSION. 57
,a half across. The Metlakatlah and Nass Missions, together with
Queen Charlotte and Vancouver Islands, will form part of the Western
Diocese, with Victoria for the chief town; while New Westminster
"will be the capital of the Eastern.
The Rev. J. Sheepshanks, Rector of New Westminster, on his way
to England, tarried awhile in the Salt Lake city of Utah, and preached
in the Temple of Mormon to three thousand Mormons. Brigham
Young sat on his throne. Mr. Sheepshanks took for his text 2 Cor.
v. 20 : " Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did
beseech you by us : we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to
God." Great attention was displayed by the poor deluded people, who
for the first time for many years then heard the uncorrupted Gospel.
In some, from conversation, there seemed to be revived a recollection
of happier days, when, in England, their ears were wont to hear the
pure Gospel of the only Saviour; and they would have said more, if
they dared.
Archdeacon Gilson arrived from England, November, 1864; the
Rev. Percival Jenns, in Eebruary, 1865. The Archdeacon has been
inducted to the rectory of St. John's, Victoria. Mr. Jenns is stationed
for the present in New Westminster. The Bishop of Columbia arrived
March 10, having left England January 17, 1865.
^ The telegraph from the Atlantic was completed to New Westminster
in April, 1865. The first message to the British Colonist announced
the murder of President Lincoln—a fruit of the sad civil war so long
raging in the great Republic.
At Sapperton, near New Westminster, a church was consecrated
by the Bishop of Columbia, May 1, 1865, the Eeast of St. Philip
and St. James. This church has been built principally by the
exertions of the Venerable Archdeacon Wright. The settlement
is formed of families of soldiers of the Royal Engineers. The communion-plate used on the occasion was the kind gift of the Archdeacon of Maidstone and Mrs. Harrison. Mr. Justice Begbie, the
Hon. Attorney-General Crease, the Hon. Mr. Holbrook, and others,
were present and took part in the proceedings. /£■

#* The Season of Lent preceding Eastertide has been set apart in
the Christian Church from the earliest ages for special Meditation,
Prayer, and Hearing of the Word, with acts of self-denial and
Well kept, it has ever tended to promote true religion, and to
quicken the growth of faith in the Soul of Man.
We commend this matter to Him, who alone is able to " give the
increase." May He be pleased to revive His work in our midst for
His Son's sake.
