THE CAPITAL OF THE COLONIES.
Cariboo West, July 22, 1866.
To tiie Editor of the B. C. Tribune :
Sir,—I see that jour contemporary, the
British Columbian, has been hauling ydH over
the coals in hh> issue of the 14th inst. When
commenting upon your article respecting the
locality of tha capital of these colonies when
united, is most daringly abu«ive, and th*'
argument" he sets up are most ridiculous. Il
your contemporary was aware of the feelings of the whole population of this colony
(New Westminster excepted) respecting the
fixing of the capital at Victoria, er somewhere else from where it now ie, how astonished he would be to find, that every soul,
from Woodcock's brewery, N. W., to the
most northern portions of tlie colony, would
cry out, —we want no cipital at New Westminster; we want no seat of Government in
a place where a few paltry political demagogues take so much pains to keep this colony
down, and imagine that New Westminster
alone can dance, while we, the substance aud
Westminster— ■ place situated within a few sciously ashamed ef, and in the freedom trom
miles of the -19th parallel, without any geo-| which they cannot but acknowledge their
graphical position cither as a naval or mercan-l wives, sisters, and iweethearts superior to
tile depot. (them.
What is the head and front of the grievances I Profanity is an unmistakable eign of vul-
of this colony from the year 1849 to 1888 parity. No truly refined gentleman will so
to us of to-day? Nothing. Thc country had no lower himself in his own eyes, as to defile his
grievances in the interval between the above | lips with coarse and blasphemous expressions,
poriods, the colony was prospering, and all I His self-esteem keeps him from falliui; into so
kinds of business were in a wholesome condi- mean and brutish a vice.    For, after all, munjBhDB

tion. Now look at this colony since 1863, or
rather since the colonies wcre really separated
and New Westminster became the seat} of
Government, and it will be seen that ever
since that day the two colonies have been
going down, and although our mining prospects look better than heretofore, yet the
whole country appears to be in a state of
bankruptcy ; our oldest and most enterprising
merchants are daily becoming insolvent and
running, or at least driven out of the country.
The downfall of not only this but the two
colonies, may be dated since 1863; look at
our population of 12,000! and look at the
civil establishment they have to support, and
the problem is solved.

deliberately pray that God may send some

It has been well and truly said that men introduce oaths into their conversation most
often, to fill up hiatuses, which their vocabulary is too slender to supply with the proper
words. And if a man does not take to
