Telegraphic Dispatches.
San Francisco, April 1G.—The Hudson Bay
Co.'s steamer Labouchere, hence for Victoria
struck the reef at Point Reyes at 10:30 P. M.
Saturday. Tho vessel is a total loss. She
had on board about 100 passengers, all of
whom, with the exception of two wero saved.
Wilcox of Williams Creek is one of the lost.
San Francisco, April 16.—At about a quarter past one this afternoon a terrible explosion occurred in the Assay Office of G. W.
Bell, on California street, adjoining Wells,
Fargo & Co.'s. Capt. Samuel Knight, Superintendent of Wells, Fargo & Co.'s Express,
and G. W. Bell were instantly killed. Several
others whose names are as yet unknown,
were also killed. Many of the employees of
Wells, Fargo & Co. were more or less injured ;
but it is thought none of them were killed except Mr. Knight. The nature of the explosion is not yet known, but it is supposed to
have been a barrel of nitro-glyceryne oil, one
of the most powerful explosive chemicals
known to modern science.
The concussion was felt with terrible force
throughout the entire city. The Assay Ollice
and a portion of the Express building were
demolished. Window sashes and glass were
shattered in buildings in adjoining blocks.
The most intense excitement exists throughout
the city, and a posse of policemen have been
stationed about the Express Office to keep the
crowd back. It is supposed that some workmen are still buried beneath the ruins of the
Assay Office. The bodies of two have already been recoved.
L. E. Webster, head of the New York Express Department is missing. The dead bodies of four persons, in addition to those named
have been found.
W. S. Havens, of the P. M. S. S. Co., is
among the missing. Messrs. Sanders & Stacy
of the Express Office, are badly injured; the
latter very seriously. From six to twelve
other persons are supposed to have been killed.
Chicago, April 12.—The Wisconsin Legislature, by a party vote, except two Republican
members in each branch, adopted resolutions
declaring that Senator Doolittle has betrayed
Wisconsin, and ought to resign. A resolution^ approving the  President's   policy was
anchorage, otherwise these ships would most
assuredly have fallen a prize to the bravery
and skill of the allies. Their loss amounts to
a trifle, only too men were killed in the action,
and the damage to the vessels is scarce worth
mentioning. The United States steamers
Vanderbilt, Tuscarora, and monitor Monad-
nack, were at Valparaiso.
The steamship Moses Taylor sails for San
Juan del Sur at 11 a. m., to-morrow, with a
large number of passengers. The Pacific
Mail steamship. Sacramento will sail on the
18th inst. instead of the 19th, the usual sailing day heretofore. Hereafter in all months
where there are 30 days the 18th instead of
the 19th will be the day of departure. This
change of the programme lias been adopted
for the purpose of connecting with the French
line at Aspinwall.
Our market for Legal Tenders is a little

your attention in this letter to sundry manufactures which have been established here,
and which I believe eould be us successfully
attempted in British Columbia. But my letter
has already spun itself out lo too gn«t a
length to admit of atiy discussion of such subjects at present, so I will reserve my remarks
in that connection lor a future communication.
The news lias just arrived that the President
has issued a proclamation announcing the
establishment of peace throughout the union,
and the cessation of Martial Law. This is a
step in the right direction, and the Democratic
party is exceedingly jubilant upon it, whilst
the Republicans are as much disgusted.

San Francisco, April G, 186C.
Since I last wrote to you, wc have had a
rather severe earthquake here. It occurred
at thirteen minutos past 12 If., March 2tith, and
although no houses were shaken down, and
no lives were lost, it scared the good people
of San Francisco from their propriety for
some little time. It is the general belief here
that some day the whole of that part of the
city which is built on land reclaimed from the
Bay, will be engulphcd, and this theory is in
a measure borne out by the fact that the
shocks of earthquake are always felt most
severely on the streets abutting on the water
front. Outsiders, too, invariably get the accounts very much softened dotvn and qualified,
and when you read in the San Francisco
papers that there has been "uuother slight
shock," you may be sure that it was fifty per
cent worse than represented.
The recent aecounts from Big Bend have
excited a good deal of attention here, and us

To thk Editor of the "Tribune.
Sir,—It is with particular interest T have
observed the sayings and doings of our Legislative Council through the press. That the
people, particularly those of our mining popu
lation, have gained something through the
acts of that honorable body, cannot be denied. The obnoxious Cold Export Tax has
been abolished, a measure, the repeal of which
you yourself so ably advocated last year in
the Cariboo Sentinel. But there were other
measures which were introduced into the
House which would have been also very acceptable to the whole population of this upper
country, from the fact that they would have
been productive of the greatest good to all,
had they been dealt half as liberally with as
tho Gold Export Tax. I refer to the Road
Tolls,   Trades'   Licence   Ordinance,   County
Court Bill, and abolition of the tonnage dues. OPPENilEIMER & CO. heir to intimate that.
However, ^e in this section of the country1 they are prepared to receive, store and for-

New York, April 12.—The Health Commissioner has ordered cows and hogs to be removed from the limits of the police district;
physicians declare that the cows are nearly
all aifected with pleuro-pneumonia, aud if
sent into the country they will spread the disease and cause immense loss.
News of the entire defeat of the Spanish
squadron by the Peruvians and Chileans is
confirmed, the allied squadron consisted of the
Apnrimac 30 guns, Peruvian corvette ; American, 12 guns, Peruvian corvette; Union 12
guns, Peruvian dispatch boat; Covadonga, 3
guns. Chileans in all mounting 75 guns. The
Spanish vessels were the frigate Blanca, 30
guns; frigate Villa de Madrid, 50 guns; in all
8(1 guns. For about two hours a most earnest
cannonading was kept up. The fire of the
allies being well regulated throughout. The
Blanca was rendered almost useless and unable to continue the fight. She dropped behind tho island referred to and endeavored
to do damage by throwing shell over the island
is
done very, shortly, the fickle mining population of this State is likely to become disgusted, and give up all idea of the Big Bend
cruntry. A short time ago the people of
Victoria made a great fuss about the new
mines, and for some days the walls ofSanjjng that thero arc not as fine and liberal a
Francisco were covered with gigantic posters, I ciass of people in New Westminster as
detailing the Big Bend route. But just asjm other parts of the colony, if their eyes
the thing began to bo talked about, and when|were once opened and they could see these
every facility should have been prepared fori selfish  humbugs in the same light we view
them, that is their true light, for the colony
destination.
Active and Labouchere were both docked, to
undergo extensive alterations. It was at lirst
said that the Labouchere would only be three
weeks fitting up, but she has been in the
hands of the carpenters already for five weeks,
and it is only to-day that she is advertised to
sail on the 14th instant. This is bad management, and likely to provo very detrimental to
the interests of the colonies, aud tho prospects of the coming season. There is a general belief here in tlie richness of the Big
Bend country, but men require some inducement to go thero in the shape of reasonable
fares, and at present they have neither low
rates nor a decent bout to take them. I believe that if the boats had been running regularly all this time, some seven or eight hundred men would have gone up, who will now

also to do away with Chancery suits was presented, but nothing has boon heard ol tho

The Other vessel suffeied badly also and both

them to a man. The professional men, traders and mechanics of the colony, have had
oppressive license duties placed upon them to
support a lot of pensioners who have no claims
to their bounty or consideration. The people
will ask is there no remedy for such a profligate waste of the public funds as is contemplated by the Government? Our answer is,
certainly. Let petitions be immediately transmitted to the Secretary of State for the colonies, setting forth the facts of each case, and
we promise that not a single one of the appointments will be confirmed.
A SECOND JUDGE!!!
OFFICIAL APPOINTMENTS.
It will be seen by reference to another part
of our columns that the Administrator of the
Government has placed three additional pensioners on the Civil List of tho colony. A
more outrageous proceeding than saddling the
oppressed tax-payers of this colony at the
present time with seven or eight thousand
dollars per annum, for tho support of three
drones who have no claims for eleemosynary
aid, we have never heard of, and it has no
parallel in the history of colonial maladministration. It cannot be pretended by the greatest sycophant of tho Government that there
is any necessity for the appointments referred
to, and on no rational grounds whatever can
they be justified. In the whole district c
Cariboo West there arc not fifty white men
resident, and tho native population is exceedingly small, besides being peaceable and well
disposed, yet they must have a stipendiary
magistrate placed over them. The district
has been more than six months without a
magistrate at all, and during that time not a
single case of crime has been committed, and
the presence of the magistrate from the adjacent district of Cariboo East has not once
been called for to vindicate the law or act in
any way in his judicial capacity. At no former
period was there so little call for a magistrate
at Quesnel as now, as with good roads into
Cariboo the officer there can reach any point
in the district in one day. In fact the two
districts, Cariboo East and West combined,
are not nearly so eitensivo as the circuit allotted to the magistrate of Yale, and the duty of
which is efficiently performed. It is now a
matter upon which there is no difference of
opinion that the population of Cariboo will be
very much lessened this year compared with
former ones; the magistrate who presides there
will in consequence have a good deal of time
on his hands, and ho can very easily pay periodical visits to Qucsuel to hold potty sessions
Courts. This will meet all the requirements
of tho district nnd save three thousand five
hundred dollars to the Colonial Treasury. To
the nomination of the member for New Westminster as High Sheriff of the colony, the
people are most strongly opposed. If the
Government have the hardihood to carry it
into effect, the greatest injury and loss will result to the colony generally. One man cannot
perform the duty, and the gross wrong of hav
ing a lot uf under paid subordinates through
out the country who have no interest in doing
their duty fairly will not, cannot be tolerated.
Such a state of things has existed too long,
and the evils that have arisen under the system !v!
are not unknown to the Government, and have JJJf
been borne by the people until they can suffer
them no longer. The last man in this colony
who has a claim to a sinecure office and a pension of a thousand a year dragged out of the
pockets of tho poor miners and traders of the
country is the author of the infamous Gold
Tax Hill; a measure that contributed so much
to depopulate and depress the colony. What
necessity there is for such an incubus as Mr.
Tom El win as travelling "correspondent" with
the Western Union Telegraph Company,
we are at a loss to understand. Last year they
had no olliciul of the kind with them, and yet
we heard of no complaints, but wc suppose
two or three thousand dollars a year must be
extracted from tho revenue of the colony to
provide for another pensioner! Wc have
labored under the opinion for some timo past
that the present Administrator of the Government was disposed to adopt a " reconstruction" policy that would havo a tendency to
lieal the wounds inflicted by his chief; we re-
grot to say that we have been disappointed,
ns instead of " carrying out the well understood wishes of the people," lie has committed
al grevious errors nsovor wero perpetrated by
Gov. Seymour. Have tho people of the country asked for the late appointments r    So far
Our contemporary at New Westminster
thinks the people of the colony are not sufficiently well ground down with taxes at present,
for in the last number it advocates the appointment of a second judge whose salary nnd
allowances would at least amount to seven or
eight thousand dollars, which, of course
would have to be added to the grevious taxa
tion which now bears so heavily on the country. The amount set down in the estimates
this year and voted by tho Legislative Coun
cil for the " maintenance of law and order" in
the colony, exclusive of the support of pris
oners, was upwards of $95,000! Truly the
people of this colony must be an unruly set,
when it takes such an amount of money to
pay for judges and police to keep them in
subjection. We will not yield to any one in
a strong desire to have the peace preserved
aud the judicial establishment? kept in an
fficient state, but we maintain that at present
instead of having more public officers, policy
and duty alike demand that our over grown
and huge establishments shall be reduced to a
state proportionate to the wants and requirements of the colony. We are now within a
month of the holding of the Spring Assizes,
and will it be believed that in three of the
four places where the judge will open the
Queen's Commission there is not a single
criminal to come up for trial!     In only one
place, also, is there a single civil suit to be
heard!! Where, then, is the necessity for a
second judge, or the inconvenience of the
present state of things? It only exists in the
imagination of the writer in the Columbian.
It is easy to prate about "new districts
springing up," nud the want that will be felt
for a judge in them! All this is just so much
pure buncome, and we are satisfied that there
is not a single individual in the colony so un-
sophisticated as to bo gulled" by it. When
there wcre ten men in the colony for one who
will be in it the ensuing sumracr,jJudgo Beg-
bie was equal to meet the emergency, and
last year he went from one extremity of the
colony to tho other to perform his judicial
duty. There is none of the " new districts
springing up this year" so widely separated
from Cariboo as Kooteuay, and yet we heard
nothing about a new judge last year. Although we aro aware that there is a good
deal of intriguing going on to have a second
judge appointed, we cannot believe that the
Administrator of the Government will dare
to take upon himself so grave n responsibility
as such an appointment. Unparalleled as
some of his late acts have been, we will not,
wc cannot, believe that Mr. Birch will attempt
at present to make any more judicial functionaries. When Union is consummated,
ro will bo a wider rango than at present
for the selection of a third judge for the
Court of Appeal, but until that event happens
a second judge for this colony would be an
ornamental appendage which the people are
not prepared, and cannot afford, to pay for.
It is all very well for the Now Westminster
newspaper to indulgo in the " gratification
of its selfish whim," by showering its foul and
unmeasured abuse upon Judge Begbie, but
taxation has gone too far already to allow the
people to maud any further prostitution of
the public funds to please a knot of tricksters at the capital, and their impotent ally
tho Columbian.
EXTRAORDINARY OFFICIAL APPOINTMENTS.
The Administrator of the Government of
this colony hns made the following most extraordinary appointments, viz.: Mr. Warner
R. Spalding, ex-Postmaster General, to fill
the eiNKCURK office of Magistrate at Quesnelmouth, at a salary, with allowances, amounting to $3,410; Mr. Homer, member for New
Westminster in the Legislative Council, to
the binecurk office of High Sheriff of the
colony, at $1,000 per annum; and Mr. T. El-
win on a magisterial tour through the interior
of the colony with the Western Union Telegraph Company, at a salary the amount of
which we have no knowledge, as it was not
voted, as far as we can learn, in the estimates

A Surprisk.—A few nights since a miner
on his way to Big Bend lost his horse at Chap-
man's Bar.   Finding that the animal had gone
off in the direction of Yale, he followed in
pursuit.    When within a few miles of the
latter place, the traveller saw a large object
standing in the centre of the road. Thinking
it was a man, our hero approached at a respectful distance. It being very dark at the
time, the nearer the affrighted miner came
the stronger grew his apprehensions that the
object really was a man who was around at
that late hour of the night for no lawful purpose. After shouting at the top of his voice
for the object to get out of the way without
there being any response or movement on the
part of the latter, the miner summoned up all
his courage and made a charge right at what
he supposed was an opponent. Drawing his
strong arm, when within striking distance, the
miner levelled a blow with his fist at the head
of what he was then fully persuaded was a
midnight robber. The blow took effect and
brought the obj ect to the ground with a loud
thump. Finding that his knuckles suffered
pretty severely by the blow, and thinking that
lie had killed a man, as there was no signs of
life, the miner stooped down to have a look at
his prostrate victim. To his surprise, as well
as to his relief, he found that instead of it
being the body of a man he had before him,
Transportation op a Dog.—We are informed that a most extraordinary trial lately
took placo at New Westminster, before a full
bench of magistrates. It appears that a
saloon keeper near the wharves has a fancy
dog, which was not restrained in his liberty.
A public official happened to be passing the
saloon one day, when the dog barked at him.
Of course the dignity of the exalted gentleman was offended, and the owner of the unruly cur was called upon to have the animal
destroyed forthwith. Not being disposed to
comply with so unreasonable a request, the
saloon keeper was summoned before the
Police Court. After hearing tho evidence of
the complainant, the magistrates ordered the
offending dog to be produced in Court. He
was instantly placed upon tho table, and to
the surprise of nearly every one present, the
hero of all the muss was discovered to be only
a little poodle, weighing two pounds four
ounces! The bench, however, convicted the
defendant, and sentenced the dog to bo
hanged. A petition was immediately got up,
as the story goes, to the Administrator of the
Government, who commuted the penalty into
transportation for life. The dog is to be sent
to Big Bend, and our old Cariboo friend,
Frank Richards, is to have charge of him.
Well, we have no doubt the boys will give
Frank and the "convict" a hearty welcome
An Important Ekterprisk.—By the steamer
which left on Monday last, bags containing
samples of pay-dirt obtained from the bars
iTwTs a'wooden7mage"tak7n from"an adjoin-1ftnd benf>* between Mstown and the Indian
village on Sc«iamma, about eight miles below
Hope, were forwarded by the resident magis-
ing Indian place of sepulture, which some
vicious wag had placed in the road to scare
any one who might be passing at night. After
recovering from his fright, or rather we should
say surprise, for miners are not easily frightened, our hero passed on to his destination to
recount his adventure and recover his straying
animal. We would remind practical jokers
that any interference as this with Indian
burial grounds, if the transgressor were discovered by the police, would be attended with
rather serious consequences.
Pass Him on.—We learn from a party who
lately returned from Savana's Ferry, that the
notorious vagabond, Tom O'Neill, has been indulging his thieving propensities in that quarter. It appears that Tom operated on a
Frenchman to a considerable extent, when the
latter attacked him with a six-shooter. Considering " discretion the better part of valor,"
swiftness of foot that
a long way   behind.
trate to New Westminster, from whence,
more securely packed, the dirt will be transmitted for examination and analysis to Eng
land. We believe this to be the result of an
application made to His Excellency the Governor, when in London, by an English Company who propose working over the abandoned diggings of the lower Fraser by the application of improved means of extracting
the gold. Mr. Agassiz, the Chief Constable
of the district, to whom the forwarding of
the samples was confided, assures us that the
prospects obtained from both the worked and
unworked benches and bars were in many cases
most excellent. We trust, therefore, that the
company may be induced to commence operations soon. The field for this enterprise is
extensive, and we make bold to prognosticate
that their venture will be crowned with a success they little anticipate.
Latest News from Big Bend.
From some gentlemen who have just re-
turned from Seymour, at the head of Lake
Shuswap, we have gleaned the following information : The lakes are now open for
traffic, and the boats have commenced to make
through trips from Savana's Ferry to Seymour
City. A large nnmber of houses are built at
the latter place and trading is going on there
pretty brisk. About 250 miners who had
crossed the lakes on the ice had proceeded
into the mines.. They were divided between
French and Carne's creeks. All had located
claims and were engsged In preparing lumber
for sluices. The best of prospects had been
obtained, and the highest hopes were entertained of success. Upwards of one thousand
miners were reported to be on their way up
the Columbia from Colville in boats. Several
had already arrived. Cottonwood Smith, well
known formerly in Cariboo, had discovered a
trail that leads direct from Seymour to French
Creek, and only the same distance as the Government trail to the Columbia. This will be
a cut off of more than thirty miles in the
journey. Provisions were getting plenty at
Seymour. Flour was selling at 80 cents,
bacon, $1 12^ cents; fresh beef, 30@85 cents;
tea, $2, sugar, 45 cents per lb. The miners
had packed in their own "grub" so far
Freighting from Savana's Ferry across the
lakes was done at 3 cents per lb. Work on
the Hudson's Bay Company's steamer had
been pushed forward with great dispatch.
She will be launched this week, and it is fully
expected that she will be making regular trips
in little more than a fortnight. The boilers
are landed at the Ferry by this time, as the
teams conveying them were met near the 90
mile post some days since. Mr. Mobcrly,
with some men, was at Kamloops, where
he intended remaining until the arrival of the
Chief Commissioner.
Tom  retreated with a
soon left his  pursuer
O'Neill, who is well known as one of tho worst
characters in the colony, spent a considerable
portion of last season on Williams Creek. In
the fall he committed a most outrageous assault on a Scotchman who was inebriated and
whom he had previously robbed. He was
convicted of the assault before the magistrate
.and required to give bail to be of good behaviour for twelve months. He was subsequently released, on condition that he would
leave the colony. If he is caught in the Columbia district he can be made to servo his full
term. He had better therefore pass over the
border at once and save himself from coming
before Judge Begbie.
Quartz Mining.—Tho Cherry Creek Gold
and Silver Mining Company recently held a
meeting at their office here, when it was resolved to have  the   company incorporated
without delay. The company have the discovery claim on this creek, and from an assay
lately made in San Francisco, the rock is
proved to be very rich. Work at the mine
lias been going on for some time past, but the
company intend putting on a larger number of
men so as to fully develop the mine during
the ensuing summer. The company formed
in Portland a short time since with $500,000
capital have their claim on the same ledge as
the Discovery Company.
Saw Mills at Bio Bend.—A gentleman en
route  to Big Bend, who arrived here by last
steamer   from Portland, informed us that a
merchant in Portland had started up tho Columbia with all tho machinery complete for a
steam saw mill, to be erected in some central
place in the Big Bend mines. Wc understand,
also, that Mr. Pete Eraser, of Lytton, will
take the machinery of his steam saw mill to
French Creek, where Mr. Romano has a saw
mill in operation.
Subscription.—Tho weekly subscription to
the Tribune along tho waggon roads from
Yalo to Savana's Ferry and Cariboo is 50 cts.
including cost of delivery. Parties requiring
tho paper will please give their orders to the
Stage Driver or to any of Barnard's Agents.
No paper sent unless ordered.
A Man Drowneo in Lake Suuswap.—From
Mr. McKay, who returned from Kamloops a
day or two since, we learned the following
particulars Of a sad accident which took place
on Lake Shuswap: A Cornishman named
John Trefoy was drowned, on the 30th ultimo,
whilst attempting to cross the lake upon the
ice. A countryman of deceased started in
compnny with him, both having sleds. .When
the ice began to give way, Trefoy unfortunately let go his sled and made for the centre
of the lake, where he was seen to fall through
the ice, and beforo any assistance arrived he
sunk. Deceased's partner got safely to shore,
where he obtained a pole; whilst in the act
of returning to render his comrade assistance,
he saw him sink under the ice to rise no more.
Trefoy was a young man, and was bound for
the Big Bend mines.
A Hard Case.—A Mexican, who had $500
due to him by a party in this neighborhood,
came here for the purpose of suing in the
County Court for his money. Finding from
the magistrate that he could only site for
$250, the man went to New Westminster to
take proceedings in the Supreme Court. On
arriving at the capital, the unfortunate creditor could not get a lawyer to take the case
under a fee of $100, and being without a
cent of money, the poor fellow was obliged
to return without attaining his object. This
is an extremely hard case and shows tlie
necessity for the County Courts Bill lately
passed, and which we hope tho Administrator
of the Government will sign without delay,
notwithstanding the selfish and unprincipled
opposition that has been raised against it.
TO   THI   SUPPORTERB   OK  THK TRIBONK.—In
order that the Tribune may have as large a
number of subscribers as possible  we have
placed the subscription at so low a figure as
to leave no margin, after meeting expenses,
for profit. We would therefore urge all who
desire to support tho paper to advertise, and
not only advertise themselves, but to urge
their friends to advertise also.
A Road Round the Lakes.—Mr. Jerome
Harper has appeared in print to ventilate his
indignation against us for exposing an attempt
which he has been making to get the Government to cut a road for his especial benefit
round the Shuswap lakes. Mr. Harper, of
coursermaifttains that the road would benefit
" others," as well as himself, but he fails to
mention who the " others" are, or how much
they will contribute to the making of the
trail! We have spoken to a great many
packers well acquainted with the country
round the lakes, and they all agree that a road
is quite unnecessary there for public utility,
as there is no feed along it, and besides,
freight can be transported much cheaper by
steamer or barges than on pack animals. On
tho part of the public we most strongly protest against the revenue being wasted in forming a road for Mr. Harper. If the cost of the
trail be only S'2,200, Mr. Harper can very well
afford to contribute the whole amount, as he
is making a princely fortune in the colony,
and is one of those who, by the inequalities of
our taxation, escapes taxes almost altogether.
In conclusion, we would just assure Mr.
Harper that the Chief Commissioner will not
sanction any outlay like that asked for by
him.
Advices have been received by telegraph that the steamer Oregon sailed on last
baturday for New Westminster.
Gone to Bio Bend.—Our old and esteemed
friend, Mons. Bt Duffis, passed through Yale
a few days 6ince on route to Big Bend.   If
indomitable energy combined with high intelligence, can secure the favor of the fickle
goddess, then, indeed, Mons. Deffis will have
success in hie pursuit after gold. Our best
wishes accompany him on his journey.

LOSS OF THE LABOUCHERE.
The steamer Labouchere, left San Francisco
On Saturday at 4 p. ui. and was wrecked tho
same night off Point Reyes. The fog was
very dense and vessel got on the breakers before her commander discovered the danger.
All the passengers, about 100 in number,
were in bed when the vessel struck; they immediately ran on deck; the engine was reversed and the vessel finally hauled off the rocks
when it was found that the water was coming
in very fast. The pumps were started and
thi passengers put into boats and upon a raft
which had been constructed and headed for
shore, which was some 10 miles distant, and
which they finally reached, with the exception of two mulattoes, who wero in an open
boat, which capsized, i passenger named Wilcox, and a steward of the vessel who were
lost; when intelligence reached town the Shu-
brick was sent to the rescue, sho reports the
Labouchere a total loss, she went down In CO
fathoms water. Somo of the passengers were
taken by tho Montana to Portland, the remainder went back to San Francisco in tho
Shubrick.
THE EXPLOSION IN SAN FHANOISOO.
Wells Fargo &Co. who are freight agents for
the P. M. S. S. Co., received   by the  steamer
Sacramento, on her late trip up  from   Panama a quantity of nitro glycerine,   which  had
reached the Isthmus some time ago, consigned to Bandmann, Nelson & Co., of this city ;
also two cases of the same article, but in larger sized boxes.   These boxes wcre  plainly
marked "nitro-glycerine acid."    The latter
two, were refused by the   parties  to whom
they wcre consigned, as they had been  damaged.     Capt. Cox superintendent  of the T.
M. S. S. Co's., wharf, finding they wcre leaking sent them down to Wells,  Fargo & Co's
office, and they were placed in the courtyard.
Webster, the freight clerk of W.  F.  &  Co.,
sent for Haven the freight clerk of the P. M.
S. S. Co. to examine  the  same.   Both  men
were rent to pieces, showing they must havo
been over the  explosive  material;  no  other
persons among tho dead  were so mutilated,
some having their bodies filled with splinters,
others having their clothes burned or   blown
off, and others receiving   fractures.    Knight
was evidently killed by the concussion.   The
boxes containing the nitro-glycerine which exploded wcre each 2^ feet high, and their superficial measurement was 14 feet 11 inches; only
one exploded, the other being found leaking,
but not exploded; two hours after tho  catns-
trophy search was made for other wounded.
Lying in the rear were three bodies ; two  not
recognized were lifeless, the third, which was
under thu others, proved to be that of Garret
II. Bell, assayer.   Bell's features were found
to bo sadly mutilated, hisrlotrrcs-almost torn
off, but ho still breathed, although insensible;
he very soon expired.    Meantime the  search
went  on  and hundreds  taking part in  the
mournful work.    Having obtained a gang of
stevedores from  the  Mail Co.'s   wharf, tho
work of exhumation is carried on systematically; as the brick and rubbish where the Union
Club House kitchen stood was being removed,
piece by piece of the mangled remains were
brought out one after nnother nnd  conveyed
away on a stretcher,   This scene   was indescribably mournful and impressive.

arriving in Yale this season is bound for Cariboo. Big Bend is the centre of attraction,
and will be so for at least some time to come.
"Half the Size."—Our Westminster contemporary, in alluding to the Tribune last
week, said that it was nearly " half the size" of
the Columbian. It omitted, however, to stato
that the Trihu.se contains double the amount
of reading matter to be found in our leviathan
contemporary. Our readers will observe that
the type of the Tkiiiune is a great deal smaller than that used by the Columbian, which
makes all the difference in the world.

LETTER FROM PARIS.
Paris, February 13,1SC6.
The Carnival Closing.
We have arrived at the lust day of tlie
Carnival. The last fat ox is making his
promenade to-day, the lust mask ball will take
place to-night, and the fat priests of Notre
Dame and St. German l'Auxerais will eat their
last fat dinner to-night. To-morrow fasting
aud sobriety commence. Were we to record
the balls and masquerades of the last week
ouly, it would require a book. It has been a
mad carnival in tho most extensive sense of
che >.ord, though some who probably have
drank and feasted to satiety pretend to have
experienced only dullness. One would think
that Parisians would tire of this annual parade
of the boeuf gras, and it is the fear of this
that prompts those who arrange the programme to increase evCry year the pomp and
circumstance. The fat cattle are of course
brought from the country, and for many years
Normandy furnished the fattest; but this year
the Nievre gained the prizes. There wore
forty-three sent as competitors, and seventeen
were adjudged worthy of the honors of this
occasion. But the number was finally re
duced to live.    The largest is called the beau
hs   2,Vi!0  pounds.
 o —
tii'ul Nievrnois   und   wei0 _   _,._.,
The  others are named after various personages in  popular plays, as Benoiten and the
Belle Helena;   the   next   largest   weighing
2,660 pounds, and the smallest 2,420 pounds.
There are also two butchers who are always
in rivalry concerning the possession of these
huge creatures, as he who buys them is master
of ceremonies during the three days of their
glory, and he also provides for the expense,
expecting to be repaid with interest by the
icceipts gathered on the road.  The slaughterhouse is the place for rehearsals, where they
march and countermarch, sing and perforin
all the evolutions, which are afterwards to be
repeated before a public more numerous than
tho opera presents.    At ten o'clock they set
forth, with'music and colors, the whole cavalcade extending half a mile and composed ol
350 persons.    First an escort on foot carrying
banners, then a triumphal car with an enormous giant glutton,  before whom are spread
roasts and joints,  heads and feet in every
state of preparation, which he has the air of
continually swallowing  without ever   being
full.    Upon his table are all the utensils of
tlie kitchen, while Hags float above his head
bearing  the  names  of the most celebrated
cooks of modern times.    After this comes the
beautiful  Nievrnois  himself, drawn by eight
of his peers, only a little inferior to himself
in size and beauty.    All who compete for the
honors of this day  are  cream color.    One
hundred   and  twenty  musicians accompany
him and he  stands as one charmed in the
midst.  Immediately behind him is the chariot,
containing a multitude of sailors and savages,
in all manner of fantastic costumes and making
all manner of fautast'c music.    Lastly, is the
car which contains the divinities, gods and
goddesses, shepherds and shepherdesses, with
flocks and  herds.     High  above all, in the
centre, is Venus, and around her little Cupids.
From  each car the tricolor is floating, and
hundreds of streamers, red, white and blue;
and all who compose the cortege, in carriages
or on foot, are fancifully arrayed in the same
colors.    The boys and girls who represent the
various characters present  themselves from
the markets and shops, and are selected according to their beauty and fitness, and paid
from one to four dollars a day.    They breakfast at the slaughter-house  before departing,
return there to lunch, and are supplied with
cakes and bonbons during the day.    At six
o'clock they dine.    The oxen who figure on
the occasion are not killed till the third morning after their march is finished, in order that
there  may be  no  fever in their veins, and
their beel steaks arc in great demand.    The
police decide through what streets the cavalcade shall pass and what houses shall be honored with a "halt."     They never fail to call
at  the  Tuilcrics,  and  at all the Embassies,
^Ministers of State, bankers, and  other distinguished persons, where the cashier, who is
Venus, perched iu her eyrie, holds out her
bag for tho golden gifts.    The garlands, bouquets and ribbons are distributed among the
pretty girls at souvenirs.
The Ball at the Tuiler'cs.
The last ball at the Tuilcrics was one of
masks and costumes, and very small, not more
than a thousand persons being invited. There
were a few Americans, among them Mrs.
Erlanger, and her sister, Miss Slidell, who
represented, the one Sunshine and the other
Showers. The Empress personified Marie
Antoinette in the day of her glory, with white
rutin underskirt and tunic, and long train of
deep scarlet velvet, trimmed with ermine and
embroidered with gold.   The Emperor wore
a black coat and small clothes, with a Venetian
cloak and the ribbon of the Legion of Honor.
He promenaded the salons with the Princess
Metternich, who wore a pale yellow silk, in
tho fashion of the Court of -Louis XVI. She
carried a long cane, covered with white velvet, and a head in the form of an apple, studded with diamonds. The Prince Imperial was
dressed as aNapolitnn fisherman. There were
so many costumes of the Court of Louis XVI.
that it would seem to havo been an arrangement. A Russian Princess, an Italian Princess, and the Baroness Rothschild each wore
a costume of the unfortunate Queen, the latter
litternlly covered with diamonds. There were
a dozen others who might have been taken
for the resuscitated ladies of her Court, puffed,
powdored and frizzled, and frizzled, powdered
and puffed. To describe the half of them
would not be possible in our limited space.
One lady represented the exterminating angel,
with sword in hand, helmet upon the brow,
and cuirass of gold upon the breast; and
unother, Satan, with robe of fire, and black
wings upon the back. There was a King of
China, aud a Queen of Madagascar, and a
Prince and peasant of every age and country.
The rooms were not so crowded as at the
ordinary balls, and a sight more curious cannot well be imagined. There have been two
or three others at the houses of different Ministers, at one of which wero representatives of
the four quarters of the globe, with minor
states grouped around them.—[Sac. Union.

THE CIVIL RIGHTS BILL.
The following is a copy of this bill, which
has been passed by Congress over the veto
of the President:
"Section 1. All persons born in the United
States and not. subject to any foreign Power,
excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States,
without distinction of color; but the inhabitants, of every race and color, without regard
to any previous condition of slavery or involuntary servitude, except as punishment for
crime, whereof the party shall have been
duly convicted, shall have the same right to
make and enforce contracts, to sue and be
parties to suits, to givo evidence, and to inherit, purchase, lease, sell, hold and convey
real and personal property, and to have full
and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings
for the security of persons and property, and
shall be subject to like punishment, pains and
penalties, and to none other, any law, statute,
ordinance, regulation or custom to the contrary notwithstanding.
"Sec. 2. Any person who, under color of
any law, shall subject, or cause to be subjected,
any inhabitant of any State or Territory to
deprivation of any right secured or protected
by this Act, or to different punishments, pains
or penalties, on account of such person having
at any time been held in a condition of slavery
or involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime, whereof the party shall have
been duly convicted, or by reason of his color
or race, than is prescribed for all other persons, shall be deemed guilty of misdemeanor,
nnd shall, on conviction, be putiished by a
fine not exceeding $1000, or imprisonment for
a term not exceeding one year, or both, at
the discretion of the Court."
The third section gives United States District Courts exclusive jurisdiction of cases
arising under the Act, and ulso, concurrently
with the United States Circuit Courts, of all
cases, civil or criminal, affecting persons who
are denied or cannot enforce the rights
secured by this Act in the judicial tribunals
of the State; and if any suit or prosecution,
civil or criminal, has been or shall be commenced in any State Court against any such
persons for any cause whatever, or against
any officer, civil or military, or other person,
for any arrest or imprisonment, trespasses or
wrongs done or committed by virtue or under
t'olor of authority derived from this Act or
the Act establishing the bureau for the relief
of the freedmen and refugees, and all Acts
amendatory thereof, or for refusing to do any
act upon the ground that it would be inconsistent with this Act, such defendant shall
have the right to remove such cause for trial
to the proper District or Circuit Court, in the
manner prescribed by the Act relating to
habeas corpus and regulating judicial proceedings in certain cases. The United States
Marshals and District Attorneys and agents of
the Freedmen's Bureau are empowered to
prosecute cases under this bill. Severe penalties are provided for all persons who may in
any way hinder the operations of it.
The fourth section provides that on all
questions of law arising in any case under the
provisions of this Act, final appeal shall be
taken to the Supreme Court of the United
States. Nothing in this Act, however, is to
be so construed as to affect the laws of any
State concerning the right of suffrage.
Later from Australia.—By the arrival of
the bark Australjnd at San Francisco, CY days
from Sidney, we have New South Wales dates
of January 13th:
Duun, the notorious bushranger, whose
atrocities have long been the terror of peaceful citizens, had been captured after a desperate resistance.
Tho sheep disease, which has raged so fearfully in the Australian colonics, has reached
its culminating point; the number of animals
infected on the 1st of November last being
only 16,000.
The New South Wales Ministry has been
reconstructed, with Cowper as Premier, Robertson as Secretary for Lands, Smart as Secretary for Public Works, Bardeken as Colonial
Treasurer, and Pluriket as Attorney General.
The political wrangle in the colony of Victoria is still continued. The Parliamentary
elections were pending and tho excitement
ran very high. A free trade candidate was
howled down in Melbourne and not allowed
to speak. Charges of bribery and corruption
were openly made against members of the
Ministry.
The prospects of the wheat crop in all parts
of Australia are reported to be very fine.
The efiects of the late drouth were terrible.
Bush fires were raging on all sides ; animals
were perishing with thirst by thousands; the
heat was intense and the earth was literally
scorched. No wonder the people hailed the
welcome rain with joy, and offered up prayers
for the grateful benefaction.

A Revolutionary Veteran.—Colonel Henry Real, a veteran of the Revolution and war
of 1812, now over ninety years old, was introduced to General Grant in New York the
other day. The Colonel addressed the General as follows:
General: I am proud to sec you. I have
shook hands with nearly all the Presidents of
the United States. I have known all the Generals who have commanded the armies of the
United States. I was once one of the richest
merchants in the United States, belonging to
tlie firm of Henry Real <Sc Co., in this city. I
served fourteen years under General Washington, and knew him well. I carried the
news of peace, in the Revolution, to the camp
on the Commons, and ran like a wild man to
the camp through the Bowery, shouting
aloud—"Peace, peace; there is peace between
Great Britain and North America!" I nursed
Martin Van Buren, President of the United
States, and spanked him. I have shook hands
with every President of the United States
sinco General Washington with tho exception
of Andy Johnson. I shook hands with President Lincoln in the City Hall iu this city, and
that good man trembled like an aspen leaf
when he saw me, an old soldier of the Revolution. We have peace now, and we may thank
you for it. God bless you, God blcBs you,
General Grant.
Thk Fenians.—Tho following is from the
New York correspondence of tho Sacramento
Union:
General Sweeny, who is the generalissimo
of the Fenians, has revealud his plans, apparently, with such freedom as to make it doubtful whether he is starting John Bull on a false
scent or telling the truth. To attempt a
revolution in Ireland just now, ho says, is an
absurdity, and it is only those who have no
knowledge of warfare, no conception of the
gigantic force it would take to meet the enemy
there, resting on his base of operations, who
dream of such a possibility. But he proposes
to strike at John Bull three thousand miles
from home, and near the Fenians' base, and
it is asserted that British Columbia is the destined spot on which the green flag of Erin is
to be displayed. Privateers are to swarm
forth from the Straits of Juan de Fuca, to
prey upon the valuable British commerce in
the China seas, and the Pacific is to be cleared
of the enemy's vessels. Tho Shenandoah has
set the example in those waters, and now John
Bull may find that he has act a bad example.

Nkw Mode of Shoeing Horses.—A Paris
blacksmith has invented a new system of
shoeing horses. Instead of the shoe being
placed—frequently much too hot—on the
hoof, and burning its own resting place, the
outside of the hoof is cut away round the foot
to about the depth of half an inch; this leaves
a ledge into which the shoe fits, and is then
flush with the frog, which just touches the
ground, and the whole foot touches the ground
instead of being raised as of old by the shoe.
The visible advantages of this are that the
foot is little pared, and that instead of a great
heavy shoe the animal is shod in whut are
little less than racing plates. The advantages
claimed by the inventor arc, that the horse
never slips, that the shoe allows the foot to
expand naturally, and that it lasts as long and
is as cheap as the old plan.
French Girls.—At the suggestion of the
Empress Eugene, tho Government has decided
that a certain number of young girls educated
at the Imperial School for Orphans of Military
men, at St. Denis, shall be provided with
places in the telegraph offices. From twenty-
five to thirty pupils are now practicing daily
on Morse's apparatus, with a view to qualify
themselves.
General Grant's Father.—Jessie R. Grant,
the father of Lieutenant Goueral Grant, has
been appointed Postmaster at Covington
(Kentucky.)

THE PRESIDENT'S VETO.
The following is a copy of the President's
veto of the Civil Rights Bill:
"To the Senate of tho United States
gret the bill entitled 'An Act to protect
the States. If Congress can repeal State laws
discriminating in these subjects, why may it
not repeal all State laws discriminating on
suffrage? The object of the second section
is to afford discriminating protection to colored
persons by im )sing penalties upon members
of Legislatures who may pass such laws, and
upon Ju.lgcs or officers who may attempt to
execute them. This invades the dominion of
I ro | the States, for which there is no warrant, ami
a II j for which there is no necessity. I do not np-
"'prebend such conflicting legislation as the bill
seems to contemplate as so likely to occur as
to render it necessary to adopt a measure of
such doubtful constitutionality.

persons in the United States in their civil
rights and furnish means of their vindication,'
contains provisions which I cannot approve
consistently with my sense of duty to the
whole people arid my obligations to the Constitution. By the first section, all persons
born in the United States and not subject to
any foreign power, excluding Indians not
taxed, are declared citizens. This provision
comprehends the Chinese of the Pacific State?)
Indians subject to taxation, gypsies, as well us
the entire nice designated as blacks, people of
color, negroes, oiulattoes and persons of African blood. The bill does not propose to give
these classes nny status of citizenship in the
States except that which may result from their
status as citizens of the United States. The
power to confer the rights of State citizen
ship is just as exclusively with the several
States as the power to confer Federal citizenship is with Congress. The right of Federal
citizenship, thus to be conferred on several
excepted races is now for the first time proposed to bo given by law. -If, as claimed by
many, all persons born in tho United States
are already citizens, the passage of this bill
can't be necessary to make them such.   If, onj
the other hand, such persons are not citizens, __,__„_   «
as may be assumed from the proposed legisla- C Jx Xj I JL1 G li i\l 1 A
lio;: to make them such, the grave question
presents itself whether, when eleven of the
thirty-six States are unrepresented in Con-
gross, it is sound policy to make tho entire
colored  population,  and  all other excepted!
