TO BE ABOLISHED.
[From tlio San Francisco Bulletin.]
A few years ago, Vancouver Island, with
its free port of Victoria, was our best market
for California produce nnd for American
manufactures. The British coloniei were
decidedly in ascendant; capital and population flocked to them, even to the detriment
of San Francisco interests. The Fraier river
mines and the rich yield of a small creek in
Cariboo attracted thousands of people, some
of whom remained, and by their ability and
enterprise gave an impetus to the country
which, if rightly directed and fostered by the
British Government, might havo made the
Pacific colonies a useful appendage to the
British crown. Vancouver Island had a liberal Constitution founded on popular repre
sentation, with a franchise sufficiently liberal
lo give every native born or naturalized
citizen an interest in political affairs. In an
evil hour bir Edward Biilwer Lytton, whon
Secretary to the colonies, had given to British
Columbia, on its release from the Hudson Bay
Company's control, a separate and independent existence with an autocratic government, thus making two official organizations
and two capitals where one would have been
sufficient. The evil was, however, partially
remedied by making Sir James Douglas, an
able Hudson Bay factor, her Majesty's representative for both colonies; but in a weak
moment the late Duke of Newcastle was persuaded to widen the separation by appointing
a Colonial Governor for each, and led away
by their apparently permanent prosperity, inflicted upon both an extravagant Civil List,
based upon the scale which obtains in older
and more prosperous Atlantic and Australian
colonies.
From that day tho colonics have declinod
rapidly, not only from their utter inability to
support such cumbersome governments, but
from other causes not unknown in mining
communities. Victoria, whinh once supported
four daily papers and several large English
importing establishments; which was building
up au export trade for British goodi to San
Francisco, Oregon, Mexico, the Sandwich
Islands, Russian America—a. business fostered
by the freedom of their port from custom
dues of any description—has fallen away
through the reduction of its home trade and
the preposterous weight of taxation for
olfic'ul  salaries'.     The now Governor, while
THE COLONY^OF VANCOUVER ISLAND J Secretary of the  colony-a nominee of the
Crown—is to be ex officio President. Eight
Magistrates from the main land and three from
the Island chosen arbitrarily by the Governor,
with seven non-official members chosen by'th*
residents of the former, and four by the residents of the latter place, subject, however
to the approval of the Governor, are to form
this unique legislative body. A system oi
apportionment which being evidently based
on square"-miles rather than population or
property, ihows how little knowledge of or
sympathy with the people he is dealing with,
is possessed by thc Queen's political Secretary
who has th« care of her forty and odd colonies.
The laws of the two provinces of the new
colony of British Columbia will remain as
they now stand, until changed by the new
Council, but the tariff of British Columbia
will take effect in the port of Victoria from
the day the bill becomes law. The Governor,
however, is empowered by the bill to institute
such a system of warehousing as may be
necessary—a proviiion which may save the
unfortunate English consignees who have
goods on their way round the Horn to the
free port of Victoria from absolute and unexpected loss of their ventures.
At first sight it seems difficult to find a
motive for the outrage of giving the richer
to the poorer, the greater to the lesser, the
majority to the rule of the minority ; but
there is a solution to be found. British
Columbia is very heavily indebted in London,
and though her bonds are quoted at a high
rate, there are no lales, for they are never
offered in the market, while the indebtedness
of Vancouver Island is but $200,000 or so.
As things have been going on of late, British
Columbia bonds are all but worthless in London, there not being any real property to
speak of in the country ; while in Vancouver
Island there is a large amount of permanent
improved real estate. The bondholders of
British Columbia, therefore, will improve their
security, and the real estate of Victoria will
become liable for the principal and interest of
money they did not borrow, and had nothing
to do with the spending of, if the bill becomes
law. Lord Russell's Government has been
hoodwinked by the bondholders as its predecessor wai hoodwinked by the Hudson Bay
Company, when it allowed their possessory
rights to the town site, and as all the governments have been hoodwinked by intereited
parties at every step they have taken in re-
ard   to these  colonics or the Hudson Bay

circles.
Should the war terminate at once, it will be
remarkable in history as one of the shortest g
and most decisive conflicts ever known. The
rapid and victorious progress of the Prussians seems to be attributable, not to superiority of numbers or generalship, but to the
excellence of Prussian arras and discipline.
In the first conflict on the frontier, an Austrian regiment  was almost annihilated by a

their own interest to support and maintain
a cheap and efficient Opposition.

of the sudden and overwhelming success of
the invader. Fortresses, once deemed powerful, offer little or no resistance to the improved artillery of to-day; battalions, equal
in number to those of the foe, are mowed
down like grass by the deadly fire from
weapons that are discharged seven times in a
minute. Prussia, like the United States, has
taught to other nations a lesson in the art of
war. Europe is beginning to understand thai
the finest iron-clad of her navies would go to
the bottom in a little time before one of the
Yankee monitors, with its monster guns. Thc
superiority of troops armed with "Spencer or
other repeating rifles was effectually settled
in our recent conflicts, for everybody except
the thiek-wittcd ruling classes of some European Governments. Now that Prussia
teaches them the same lesson, achieving in
three or four days of fighting results that
would ordinarily seem amply sufficient for a j
long cam' aign, perhaps they may find it convenient to look into the matter.

who, under his rule, have been gradually de-|,0|e jtB forejgU  trade and the advantage of
dining from comparative wealth to a state in
which bankruptcies are common and poverty
universal. The House of Assembly and thc
Executive have never worked cordially together, and have often been at open feud on
questions arising out of the exorbitant demands upon the public purse ; and at last the
Home Government, having blundered at every
■tep—having done everything they ought not
to have, and left undone everything they
ought to have done—have determined upon
getting out of the scrape by a coup d'etat.
Lord Russel's government, as one of their
last acts, brought in a bill to expunge Vancouver Island trom the roll of British colonies,
to extinguish all the rights of the electors, to
sweep away the constitution, the free port,
and everything that attracted capital and intelligence to that out-of-the-way island, and
to give tho people ov*r, bound hand and foot,
to the domination of tlie Governor of British
Columbia and his paid magistrates.
The bill proposes Grst to abolish the constitution by which the people have elected their
representatives in the Island Legislature for
the last ten yean, to annex the Island, which
contains all thc assessed property, two-thirds
being in direct communication with the Gov
ernment, and New Westminster will lose the
little separate trade it now has, and become a
mere hamlet of official residences and a wood-
yard for passing steamers. Vancouver Island
being a small, weak place, cannot resist the
the tyranny which takes away her political
rights and confiscates her property, but the
inhabitants already imbued with republican
ideas, will cast longing eyes at the free self-
government of their neighbors in Washington
Territory.

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.
All speculation regarding Lord Derby's new
Ministry has been set at rest by the accounts
received by thc last Eastern mail. The attempt to form a coalition Cabinet having
failed, ministers have been selected exclusively
from the Conservative party, and it is generally
ronceeded, even by the organs of the late
Whig Government, tliat a greater array of
men of talent have not been called on as the
Queen's advistrs during Her Majesty's reign.
Some of those accepting office were in tbe
last Administration of the present Premier,
bat the larger number are new to official life,
and, unlike the old and eiTeto members of
Lord
have
most rank iikthe House of Commons. It is
also a significent fact, that two-thirds of the
Cabinet have been selected from the Lower
House of Parliament, a circumstance that
csnnot fail to bo of vital importance to the
success of the Ministry, as it is in the Commons that all the great party battles aro decided. With Lord Stanley at the Foreign
Office, the policy of the country abroad will
be such as to uphold and preserve tho dignity
of the empire, whilst it will be conciliatory
and paciiic towards foreign power*. The

The term for which this body was elected
expired on the first instant, it will therefore
become the duty of the Government to summon a new Legislature with as little delay as
possible. It is highly desirable that the elections should take place before the end of the
present month, in order to enable the miners
in the upper country to record their votes
before leaving the place of their summer
residence. Heretofore the elections have
been held too late in the season, and the
consequence has been to lessen the number
of votes cast in the various districts. There
can be no reasonable excuse for any postponement in the matter, as under any circum-

GOOD STALING AND OHBAP FEBD.  W BRITISH COLUMBIA TRIBUNE.
YALE, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1866.
A Swindling! Omkatiox.—The Portland
Oregonian gives an account of one of thc
most barefaced sw'ndlee which we have heard
of, performed by the now notorious Major
Robertson, upon several of the wealthiest and
most enterprising citizens of that town.    It
appears that Robertson, last winter, took
some exceedingly rich silvor quartz rock—
supposed to be from the Cherry Creek Silver
Miniug Company's lead—to Portland, where
a company of capitalists was immediately
formed ou the strength of the highly promising specimens which Robertson operated on.
The company sent a number of men under
a Msjor Blake to open tiie mine last spring.
Robertson accompanied the party to Colville,
where he left them to find their own way to
the mine. The fellow, instead of going to
Shuswap, came on here and went to San Francisco and then back to Portland, for what
purpose is not clear. Mr. Carter, one of the
members of the company, was sent here with
Robertson to examine the mine. The gallant
Msjor, however, gave the confiding gentleman
the slip at Victoria on the pretense of going
forward to Lake Shuswap to have a boat
readv to take him across. This, however, he
failed to do, for on Mr. Carter getting to
Shuswap he found that Robertson had pro-
eeeded on across the line en his way to Montana and thence God knows where. We are
not told how much the rogue victimised our
Portlaud friends, but we are afraid that it was
to a considerable amount. Such villainous
scamps an* not only a disgrace to society, but
a real injury to the country. Robertson is a
fellow ol' good address, plausible manners,
and great cunninr;. He acted as an assayrr
for some time in Victoria, having come there
from the States in the early days of Fraser
River excitement. For the last year or two
he has been around this country on prospecting expeditions, and it was really believed
that he had made a discovery somewhere
adjneent to the Cherry Creek silver lead. If
he ever attempts to set his feet on British
Columbian soil, we can promise the gentlemen whom he has so greatly wronged in Portland that he will not only get a warm recep-
lion, hut every assistance will be givtn towards having him arrested and transferred to
the author ties of Portland. We hope the
newspapers of Idaho and Montana will pass
the swindler round.
To the Editoi or thi B. C. Tribchk :
Sir,—Our attention is again called to one
of those low, unmanly, and insulting paragraphs which your contemporary of the British Columbian so often indulges in, to vent
his wanton spleen, against the Tribuki, or
the ''small Victoria organ," as he chooses to
call it. His comment upon your arrival at
Ne-w Westminster hi unprecedented amongst
editors of the pre*s; no matter how much
they may differ politically or otherwise, they
always had that respect not only for themselves but also for one another, "to speak ol
members of the profession with respect when
en route from one place to another, either on
business or pleasure.

Freighting.—Very few havo any idea of
the magnitude of the carrying trade of this
colony. The number of packers and merchants freighting goods to the various mining
districts is 10, aud the number of animals engaged,   1,846.     To  this must be added the
animals on the stage routes and telegraph,
which swells the total to 2,332. The following list will be found correct: Hudson Bay

THE
MISREPRESENTATIONS   OF
"BRITISH COLUMBIAN."
THE
To THE EniTOR OF Till B. C. TltinPNl.
Sir,—In looking over a late issue Of the
Rritish Columbian, I observed a most scurrilous and ridiculous article, headed " Thc
Tribune and the Governor." Ne one can
read the article in question without becoming
disgusted with the pure and genuine billings-
gate which constitute its composition, and 1
am sure .my fellow colonists will concur with
me in saying that its author is a scandal and
disgrace, not only to the country, but also to
the press. The idea of connecting Governor
Seymour's name in the same pago with such
low blackguardism as the editor of the Columbian makes uae of, proves conclusively how
much respect he entertains for his Excellency.
I hud intended to extract a few specimens of
the low billingsgate he has made use of, and
insert it in this letter, but common decency
and the respectability of the colony forbid
me, indeed, the objectionable language fills
too mnc'i space already.
In the same issue of the Columbian already
referred to, in a paragraph headed " Yale,"
it is stated that Governor Seymour is coarsely
abused by the Tribune, because it does not
endorse tha dispatch sent to Mr. Cardwell
respecting Union, but I believe the Governor
can stand it. I don't suppose for one moment
that, as a public man of some twenty year*'
experience,   that  bis   Excellency ii unaccii*
this colony this side of New Westminster
never have had any trouble with the people
of Victoria. They have always been intimately connected in mercantile affairs and
otherwise, while n bitter and antagonistic
feeling existed in New Westminster against
Victoria—a mean jealousy because Victoria
commanded the commercial trade of this
colony, which is the natural effect of Victoria's
geographical position, which is in every
respect superior to an inland town like New
Westminster.
But with respect te the fixing of the capital
of this colony, Union or no Union, it must be
situated in the centre of the country. It
would be a great advantage lo the country to
have it centrally located:
1st. It would lead to tho happy result of
putting an end to all further disputes respecting its local destination.
2d. It would not only improve the agricultural districts of this colony, but would also
give the public officers a fair opportunity of
weeing lor themselves what the real wants of
the colony are. There is no quesiion that
such a step taken by-the Home Government
would inspire confidence, and encourage nil
branches of industry, and be the only sure
means of increasing the population iu our
rural districts.
3d. I feel confident that if such a step is
not taken, and thnt quickly, the largest and
most valuable sections of the land in our
rural districts will   lay waste and unoccupied.
Election Intelligence.—The time for
which the Legislative Council was appointed
having expired, some activity is beginning to
be manifested in regard to the new elections
The people of Cariboo West are determined
to return their former efficient member, Mr.
Robert Smith, and Mr. G. A. Walkem is the
favorite for Lillooet and Douglss. Seveial
candidates are already out for New Westminster, the most active canvassers, however, are Mr. Holbrook and Mr. Robson. The
latter gentleman should solicit some of the
up country constituencius, in order to prove
to the world whether he has truly repreaented
the feelings and views of the colonists in the
interior on the great questions which have
been agitating the country for some time past.
Why does he not try Yale? It is not far off,
aud" the fact of it being the most important
constituency in the coloay the editor of the
Columbian has a goed opportunity ol testing
the popular feeling. Mr. Robson could seive
hia master the Government by getting into
the House for Yele, lie can do them no good
by being rejected—which he will meat assuredly be—for New Westminster.
Coufishing.—Seventeen vessels have been
on the Northwest Coast (North Pacific) this
season fishing for cod. They have been remarkably successful in discovering extensive
banks swarming with fish which are declared
to be equal to any found on tho banks of
Newfoundland. The estimated catch this
season ia 1600 tons (dried) fish and 10,000 to
12,000 gallons of oil. The fish are superior
to those caught in Ochotsk sea. The newly
discovered banks are situated near Schumagin
Island, in 50 degrees north latitude and 160
west longlitue. It appoars from the published
statements that the enterprise will handsomely
reward those embarked in it. It is strange
that we have allowed the merchants of San
Francisco to beat as in our own waters and
along our own eoasts in so profitable a
business as codfishing.
Improtimihts.— The chain-gang have been
engaged, under the superintendence of officer
Coffee, for some time past, in clearing tbe
stumps off Douglas street in this town. The
improvement was much required, and the
work, so far, has btti well done.
New FLoua Mill at Soda Creek.—We
understand that Mr. Win. II. Woodcock has
ordered the machinery, which will be up by
the next California steamer, aud arrangements have been made to immediately erect
a first class flour mill at Soda Creek, which
will be flourishing this fall. We learu that
the Government have encouraged the enterprise by removing all road tolls, tonnage dues
and duties on the machinery.
Funeral.—The funeral of the late Mr.
Thomas McMicking took place at New Westminster on the 27th ultimo, and was attended
by the largest concourse of people ever collected together in the town.    Deceased being
senior officer of one of the military companies
lately organized for the defence of the capital,
was buried with  military honors     The body
ot Mr.   McMicking's  son   had  not been  re

the continent while he was on a tour of pleasure, cannot be accepted by the people of this
colony as correct, when there is ample proof
to the contrary. I do not want to smother
him with flattering encomiums, ;ike the Columbian, for the misrepresentations hia Excai-
li-ncy has made in his dispatch to Mr. Oar-i-
well regarding our position ; no, I consider it
our right to comment upon all hit acis, und
to help to correct, but not abuse him, although
he is Governor of this colony. Not content
with abusing you, the Columbian indulges in
the following threat against the prop e of
Vale : " Unless the enterprising and deserving
" people of Yale, in some marked way, show
" their disapprobation of the line of policy
'"being pursued in that paper (meaning the
" Tribune) with regard to our Governor, the
" consequences may yet prove prejudicial to
''their interests."
Now, sir, through your columns, I will take
the liberty of informing your foul mouthed
contemporary of New Westminster that the
enterprising people of Yule will not be verv

Names of Countries.—Europe signifies a
country of white complexion ; so named because the inhabitants there were of a lighter
complexion than those of either Asia or
Africa.
Asia signifies between, or in the middle,
from the fact that geographers placed it between Europe and Africa.
Africa signifies the land of corn, or ears.
It was celebrated for its abundance of corn,
and all sorts of grain.
Spain, a country of rabbits or conies. This
country was once so infested with those

Italy, a country of pitch ; from its yielding
great quantities of black pitch.
Gaul, modern France, signifies yellow-
haired ; as yellow hair characterized its first

whiteness of its shores or the high rocks on
the western coast.
