LETTER FROM FRENCH CREEK.
French Creek, June 11, 1866.
Sir,—I arrived on this creek one month
since, there have  been a great many men
come and gone since that time, most of whom
did not wet a pick when they found the general character of the diggings not what were
represented,  aud  most of the poor fellows
without funds, there was no other alternative
but turn back.    French Creek is as large as
Keithly Creek in Cariboo.    Miners, I am told,
have been up as far as 10 or 12 miles without
seeing its head waters.    It has a tributary
rising from the same divide which McCullough's
Creek takes its rise from, same as Antler and
Grouse Creeks.    The water in French Creek
has been high since the spring of the season,
but is now falling rapidly.    Bed rock is but a
few feet deep for about a mile.   Above the
Discovery claim, half a mile further up, is the
Cottonwood Smith shaft, down 30 feet; the
boys are now getting in  a large overshot
wheel,  and are bound to see bottom.   The
Glencoe company, whose upper stakes take in
the last of that portion of tho creek where
bed rock is easily found, have set their sluices
and expect to take out pay next week.   Next
the Glencoe is the Cole company, putting in a
dam.   The next is the Cain, the latter with
the Martin below them, have joined in putting
in a large wing-dam.  Next is thc Twentyman,
putting in a dam.    Next the Old Texas, putting in a wing-dam.    Capt. Doane bought
half an interest in the Texas for §1000. Next
is the St. Germains, putting in a wing dam.
Next is the Shop. Bailey ; Shep. is taking out
pay for some time.    Next is the Thompson,
running s, wheel and pump, and getting ready
to  wash.     Next is the Purves, getting in a
new overshot wheel.     Next is the  Munro
company, taking out wages since 7th of May.
Next is Judge Perry, putting in a dam. Next
is the Half-breed, ground sluicing one side of
the bank and preparing to put in a flume to
carry all the water in the creek at its highest.
Dr. Shiel bought out Laflour's interest  for
$5000.     Next is the Discovery, just commencing to wash after putting in a huge
wing dam and completing a ditch and flume
16 or 18 hundred feet long, under the very
able management of Mr. Joe St Lawrence.
Next is the Hard Up, 30 feet in their splendid
new shaft; their old shaft of last year reached
37 feet.   Below the Hard Up the creek widens
out and there is no prospecting going on, the
boys are afraid it is like the meadows on Williams Creek.    On either side of the Discovery
thc mountains   slope down on to   benches
nearing Gold Creek ; these benches are being
prospected near town, and I have heard of
prospects being obtained from some of the
shafts, but cannot vouch for their correctness.
Opposite the Half-breed, in the bank, your
esteemed friend, Mr. Deflis, is running a tunnel and thinks he has a perfect El Dorado;
his numerous friends hope he will win.    About
a mile and a half from Gold Creek and op
posite the Discovery claim is the new town,
beautifully situated upon a sloping bench, and
the buildings now being erected certainly do
not disgrace the site.  Considering the scarcity
of money, there is considerable building going
on;  there   are   at   present   running,   three
whisky mills, two stores, one hotel or restaurant, kept by Mr. Stege, formerly of Fenton
House,  Cariboo;  one  blacksmith's and one
shoemaker's shop. In course of erection there
are  four beautiful saloons, ono brewery, flvo
buildings suitable lor stores, a butcher's shop
and a blacksmith's shop.    The Government
business is being done in a tent erected upon
logs.
McCullough's Creek runs a stream larger
than Williams, it is very steep up to the canon,
a distance of one mile or more from thc Dis-
covory claim, and is exceedingly rough for
that distance, large boulders packed against
each other very thickly. The pay dirt in the
Discovery was five feet under those boulders
on bed rock last year. The boys have lost
the bed rock this spring, they have now got
a derick and are lifting olF the large boulders,
and are grouud-sluicing before starting to follow the bed rock. Other companies on the
creek aro sinking shafts and running open
cuts, or prospecting their ground by ground-
sluicing. There are a few companies above
the cation taking out wages, but a great many
claims are abandoned altogether. McCullougii had a law suit with the Clemens company about the Discovery ground. The Gold
Commissioner could not see that either were
entitled to a discovery claim, and gave each
300 feet.   This decision broke up the dis
covery ground, so a rush was mads for the
balance of the ground. Notice of appeal was
given by Clemens, but the company soon
changed their minds and the affair is settled;
I understand all parties are pretty well satisfied.
There is little news from Carnes Creek;
prospecting going on. Abbott and others,
who left McCullough's Creek, have gone to
Carnes Creek and are going into deep sinking.
Another month and we shall know more about
our new gold fields. The wing darning which
is going on now ought to have been done in
March and April, and have had all set ready

for work when spring opened. It is impossible for ono to say what kind of a camp this
is going to make, there is nothing known of
the country as yet; men had to leave here
before the time for prospecting came. There
is no change in rates of provisions. Mr.
Moberly has the trail already finished from
Kirby's Landing to the mouth of McCullough,
where Ned Allen ferrys man and beast over
Gold Creek. From McCullough'a Creek to
this place thc trail is to be finished to-morrow.
Now, sir, it remains to be seen how quickly
Talk, B. C, 7th June, 1S66.
Wc, the undersigned passengers by Davis'
Stage Line from Savana's Ferry to Yale, beg
to inform the public, through tho medium of
the press, that in our late trip down from the
mines to this place, we received the best
of treatment from the proprietor of Davis'
well conducted line of stages. Instead of
requiring us to walk any part of the journey,
Mr. Davis made a connection where the road
was impassable by bringing a well appointed
stage out from Tale and had it in waiting, to
convey us from tha.t point to the end of our
journey. Our trip was, therefore, from beginning to end, made comfoi table, pleasant
and speedy. We think the people should
support a line of stages that carries passengers for $15, in opposition to a monopoly line
that, when it had the power in the beginning

Two legal gentlemen, Messrs. Cornwall and

litigation as some supposed would be. Everybody keeps very quiet, we have had no ar-
animals, fit for their work, and able to proceed on their journey without such assistance.

the line being well conducted both ways
working on Sunday, though they say we
won't have any clergy in here until gold is
found in paying quantities. The weather is
all that could be wished for; the first week
in June the thermometer ranged from 80 to
90 degrees in the shade. There is no sick-
neBs, and but one death has taken place in the
mined, from an accident in the Discovery
claim ; A. Vial, a Cornishman, died on McCullough's Creek, from a boulder falling on
him, the best medical skill could not save his
life and he expired in a few days.
CANON CREEK.
Quesnel, June 19.—Still great excitement
in the new gold fields of Canon Creek. Everybody is preparing for a start. The farms
in this vicinity are being fast deserted, farm
labor being at a discount. Scarcely any
person is content to work for wages. The
steamer Enterprise arrived from Soda Creek
last evening with a number of passengers,
among whom were some of the Canon Creek
prospecting party on their return. Tho boat
was deserted by her crew, and no others to
be hired. A party start to-morrow for the
new El Dorado. Woather very fine ; river
again on the rise.
As it is for the interest of the country to
break down the monopoly of the staging in
this colony that has kept up fares to an extortionate height, and to keep up a healthy
competition in this as well as in other branches
of business, we would urge all persons going
up or coming down from the mines to give
Davis' line support on account of its cheapness, rapidity of conveyance and comfort.
There are no touters or paid runners for
Davis' line, so travelers should be on the look
out and not be roped in by any unscrupulous
persons on the road.

and many are only waiting further intelligence

done and the prospects which have been

RETRENCHMENT—WHERE   IT   MUST
BEGIN.
In a late number of this journal we pointed
out the anomalous position which this colony
occupied iu paying an absentee Governor
$20,000 per annum. Such a profligate waste
of the public funds has called forth expressions of surprise from an influential section of
thc press of Canada and England, and this
country is reproached with her prodigality.
This is not to be wondered at when it is considered that with the smallest population of
:my of Her Majesty's colonies we are keeping
up public establishments which such colonies
.is New Zealand, South Australia, Queensland
and Tasmania, with their hundreds of thousands of inhabitants can only afford to maintain. Wo think thero are few in this country
who would not rejoice to see thc day that
this colony contained such a population as
any of the Australian colonies at present possesses, and if ever that event happens, a few
thousands of pounds would be no object; but
in the present state of the colony, with taxation at a point which it becomes oppressive,
the Government allowances must be brought
into harmony with the existing state of the'
public finances.   We are glad to observe that   0a ftDd aUer M,y 28th' 1866>the 8tc*™;r win lDaTe

(Before E. H. Santera, Esq.
!*55*!
,J.P.)
Yale, 23d June, 1866.
Dr. Brouse vs. L. Haulier.—This was an
action for $195, amount of physician's fee and
expenses to Lytton to attend a patient.    A
jury was impanneled to try the  suit.    The
case will be best understood from the evidence
of the plaintiff: Dr. Brouse sworn and testified
as follows—I received a telegram from Lytton
on the 8th ultimo, of which the following is a
copy: "Come by to-morrov's stage,  a man
very sick,  the  people  will  bo   responsible.
Answer.   (Signed) Smith."   T thought there
had been a public meeting, and that the people would be responsible.    I went up next
morning by stage.   On arriving in Lytton I
saw Mr. Smith, who said he did not send for
me.    I also saw Mr. Buie, who knew nothing
of a meeting.    I then saw Mr. Haulier, who
I learned had sent the telegram.   He (Mr. H.)
asked me why I did not go to see Dr. Burnett?
I replied, who is to pay me ?   He said he would
guarantee payment.    I then wont to see the
patient, who was dangerously ill from delerium
tremens.    (The  witness then gave an intelligent description of the treatment which he
adopted, which  was subsequently  approved
by Dr. Oliver.)   When Dr. Burnett was out
of danger I  left, but before coming away I
applied  to Mr.   Hautier for payment of my
bill.    He ashed me wait and I would be paid.
I was out of pocket |60 expenses, stage hire
and hotel bill, and I only charged $45 of this
in my  bill.    I have charged $150, which is
only  moderate  compensation for my time.
When I returned home I applied by letter for
payment of my account, did not succeed in
getting it, and was forced to take proceedings.
William Robinson, telegraph operator, Lvtton,
proved that he sent the message to Dr. Brouse
for  Mr.  Hautier,  but in  the  hurry  of the
moment inadvertently put Smith's name to it.
He swore positively that Mr. Hautier gave
him iiuthority to send the telegram for Dr. B.
Mr.  Cran  proved receiving the telegram and
de ivering it to Dr. Brouse.    This closed the
case lor the plaintiff.
Mr. Chisholin testified for the defence that
he was present in mith's saloon, in Lytton,
when four or Ave others, including Smith and
Haulier, were present. Dr. Burnett being
very ill, witness was asked to iro nnd see him.
He did so. Returned again to the saloon and
sta'ed that unless a medical man was sent tor
and uttendi d Immediately the patient would
die. A conversation ensued among those
present about sending for a doctor. The witness was aware of an agreement between the
saloon-keepers not to give Dr. Burnett liquor,
nnd never saw the doctor get any drink in
Haulier's after that agreement was mad-.
The defendant made a statement through Mr.
Agazzis, who acted as inierpreter, to the jury,
denying lhat he had given authority to send
for the plaintiff, and that it was understood
that a subscription would be raised by the
townspeople to pay Dr. Brouse. The plaintiff
briefly addressed the jury. Thc Court being
cleared, the jury remained for a considerable
time in deliberation, when they brought in a
verdict for the plaintiff for $90 and costs,
being $60 for expenses nnd $30 for compensation for five days (the time he was absent
from Yale,) being at the rate of $6 a day.
McColly vs. Ward.—This was an action for
$79 50, amount of account for carpenter
work done by plaintiff. The case was tried
before Mr. Sanders without a jury. The defendant disputed some of the items of the
account, and also put in a set off of $56 62,
amount of promissory note due by plaintiff
and transferred by Madame Delntre lor cou-
sideraiion to defendant. McColly said he had
signed the note under compulsion, as Madame
Delutre threatened to stop him going up
country l.isi year. Alter hearing the evidence
at considerable length, the Court allowed the
note as well as some of the items objected to
by defendant, and gave a decree for $10 75.
Bales vs. Evans Bros.—This was an action
for $100, balance of account for use of plaintiff'* ranch dm ing the winter for grazing
entile belonging to defendants. Owing to the
absence of a material witness for the def nee
the case whs postponed after it had been
partly gone into.
Barnard vs. Harris.—Suit for $140, de
fendani's fare on stage trora Cariboo, and
freight of cisk of liquor to Soda Creek.
$55 was paid into Court. Mr. .Sutton applied
for a postponement on the part ot defendant
for the producii 'n of Capt. Dom, a material
witness The Court declined to accede to
the request, and gave judgment for plaintiff.
Sharp Practice.—A great many complaints have been made from time to time
about tbe sharp practice resorted to at the
Alexandra Bridge, in extracting from the
public more than the lawful toll upon goods
passing through. It has been stated to us by
respectable teamsters that where the toll has
exceeded an even sum by two or three cents,
'or which their employers could not send any
coin, they have been compelled to unyoke
a horse from the team and return perhaps
four or five miles, and even to Yale, to obtain
a ten cent piece to pay the difference, whilst
in no case has the toll-keeper ever made any
allowance for the amount almost daily over
paid in toll. The latest instance of the kind
of sharp practice to which we have referred
was in the case of an Indian who was packing
for a respectable firm in town. It appears
that the amount of toll which the native had
to pay was $10 17. As a matter of eoursc
the nearest coin to pay this would be $10 12-J,
which was given to the packer. On presenting himself at the toll-gate the whole amount
was demanded from the Indian, who was compelled to fork down $10 26 before he could
pass. Now, we maintain that if the toll-
keeper had a right to get the $10 17, he, by
the same law that entitled him to it, was
bound to furnish the packer with the legal
change amounting to eight cents. By not returning the change the toll-keeper has committed an illegal and unjustifiable act for
which he is responsible. All that teamsters
and packers arc required by law to do in paying toll, is to pay the amount, or as near to it
as the coin of the realm in circulation will
permit. The law does not sanction or recognize an over-payment, and if the toll-keeper
must have the last cent, he must be prepared
give the legal change when a customer

to
tenders him more than the amount. We
cannot say whether the proprietor of the
bridge has been aware of the great dissatis
faction which his employee's conduct has
given to the traders of the colony, by the
sharp practice which be has adopted; but if
he has not, we think Mr. Trutch would be
consulting his own interests by referring to
the merchants of this town, who can give him
full information on the subject The following
is a copy of the latest manifesto of the toll-
keeper:
" The Indian had too little cash for tell;
$10 12| instead of $10 17; he had to pay
the balance. Jno. Pi,eicx.
A Raid on Chinamen.—Our readers are
no doubt aware that in the last session of the
Legislative Council a law was passed imposing
the Mining License duty on all persons engaged in mining pursuits without distinction.
Since the law came into operation the Chinese
have been very slow to come forward and
procure their licenses, although they have
been making good wages on the Fraser river
bars and on creeks in thc interior. On Monday last officer Coffee, of this town, proceeded
to a part of the Fraser, about six miles out,
where twelve Celestials were working, and on
hailing them from the opposite side of the
river the Chinamen refused to bring their
boat over for the officer. Mr. Coffee was
obliged to proceed a considerable distance
before he could obtain a canoe to cross.
Finding one, he came down to the spot where
the men were working and demanded their
license, which, of course, the Chinese could not
understand—because they had none. Subsequently they were all summoned to appear
before Mr. Sanders, the Gold Commissioner
in Yale. Twelve Chinamen appeared to
answer to the complaint of the officer. Four
were fined in $25 each, in addition to being
made to take out the license, and the remaining eight were let off on their having paid
the license duty. The fines were of course
immediately paid.   We hope that the example
EUROPEAN.
The dates are to 10th June.
Tbe  Prussian troops entered Holstein on
the 7th June.   The Austriins were concentrating at Altcna.   These moves are regarded
as a virtual commencement of the war.
In the British House of Commons the Opposition had attempted a surprise of the Government by moving the postponement of the
franchise classing reform, but were defeated.
Continental news continues warlike. Bis
marck had issued an important circular, dated
the 4th, addressed to Prussian Representatives
abroad, and says all our information agrees
that a determination to make war is settled at
Vienna. Not only was there manifested an
utter absence of a desire to enter into negotiations, and to discuss the possibilities of agreement, but expressions of influential Austrian
statesmen and counsellors to the Emperor
have been reported to the King from authen-
>ic sources, which leave no doubt that the
Imperial Ministry desire war at any price;
partly in hope of successes in the field, and
partly to heal domestic difficulties, nay, even
Austrian finances, by popular contributions or
by honorable bankruptcy. The fact of war is
settled by this determination at Vienna. The
only further point is to choose a favorable
time to begin.
The London Times says, such a dispatch as
tbe above has not often been penned by a
European Minister.
The London Telegraph says, with this dis
paten the last hope of peace disappeared
Hostilities have become evident. General
Goblentz issued a proclamation proiesting
against the Prussian occupation of Holstein.
He daily expects orders to attack the Prussians, and to use every effort to rout them.
He has announced tbe transfer of the Government of the Duchy of Holstein to the city of
Altona.
Latest accounts say the Emperor of Austria
has ordered Goblentz to avoid an engagement.
Goblentz is further ordered to retain the civil
functionaries in power, and to delay a declaration of martial law. The Emperor claims
that affairs now stand as they did previous to
the Gartien"convention.
The Crown Prince of Prussia has been appointed Governor of Silesia during the mobilizing of the army.
A Florence telegram says, Italy will commence hostilities so soon as war is opened by
Prussia.
Tbe cholera is still continuing its ravages in
Holland. Returns from Rotterdam state that
out of 85 cases 45 havo proved fatal. TI e

San Francisco, June 22.—Eastern line «t| 1
out of order beyond Fort Laramie. Quite ■
sensation was created this morning by the arrival of the U. S. naval steamer Vanderbilt,
which is to be the flag ship of the Pacific
squadron, accompanied by tho double-turreted
monitor Montauk. These vessels left Hampton
Roads on the 2d November last, and have
bad an excellent passage. This is the first
cruise round the Horn ever made by a Monitor. The manner in which thc Montauk behaved during the passage surprised the most
■anguine anticipations of her officers. Among
the naval officers who came out in the Vandcr
bilt is Commodore Rodgers, who is to commend the fleet on this coast.

LETTER FROM SEYMOUR.
(rtOX    OUR    OWN     CORRRSPOXDBVr.
June 22d, 1866.
There is nothing certain from Big Bend
since I last wrote. Everything seems to be
in a state of uncertainty. Some men will
come in and report very good strikes, and in
a few hours after others will arrive cursing
the country and denying the previous statements in toto. Still, there seems to be more
confidence in the ultimate result, and traders
are pushing on goods, now the trail is open.
The freight demanded' at present from here to
French Creek is 20 cents, but it must soon
come down. The Marten brought up, last
night, about sixty mules and horses, and about
a dozen milch cows. Provisions are abundant
here and about the same prices as before.
The steamer Forty-Nine arrived at La Porte
on the 17th. Her freight cousisted Of about
150 sacks 6f flour, some I:aeon and potatoes;
also two. mules, but no passengers. One of
the hands of the Marten; named Joseph Loyd,
was lost in the lake by falling overboard.
There are 85 animals now packing across to
tho mines from Seymour.
Thi Direct Steamer.—The term for which
a contract was made with the direct steamer
from San Francisco by our Government will
expire, we understand, on the first proximo.
So far as we can learn, there is no intention
of renewing the contract, as tbe benefits
promised by the promoters of tho 6cheme
have never been realized. Those who were
in favor of having a direct 6teamer before it
was tried, now admit that they have been disappointed by the result of the trial that has
been made. Thero will be a saving of it
least $4000 a month to the colony by the
rogation of tho contract, and the mails wiil
come as regularly hereafter as they have dono
in the past, in fact more so, as they will be
dispatched from Victoria by the Enterprise
the moment they arrive there, instead of remaining over twenty hours, as they have done
under the direct (!) contract.
Quartz Lode.—A short time since two
California miners, who were out prospecting in
the vicinity of Yale, discovered a quartz lode
which shows promising indications of silver
and copper. The men commenced running a
tunnel on their own account, and are now in
twenty feet. They expec to strike the main
lode shortly, as the indications are improving
every foot the tunnel progresses. We are
surprised that the property-holders of Yale
do not lend a helping hand to a work tbe
success of which would redound so much to
ihe prosperity of the town. Some specimens
from the croppings have been sent to New
Wc tminster for assay.

Tee Indian Liquor Bill.—Strenuous ex-
eruonn are being made in Victoria to prevent
the final passage of this measure by the
Legislative Council. Whilst we give the promo era of the opposition to the measure eve y
credit for thorough sincerity io connection
with the gibject, yet we believe that they
would be exercising a sound discretion in allowing thc bill to pass and giving the measure
a fair and honest trial. Thc system that ban
been in vogue in Victoria has hopelessly
broken down, and some change is absolutely
necessary.
No Court House.—The want of a Court
House in Yale is very much felt on every recurring County Court day. The Magistrate's
office being a very small shanty, the suitors at
the Court have to stand outside whilst the
proceedings aro going on within. Such a
s ate of things is discreditable to the Government especially so now that the money has
been voted for the erection of a Court House.
We hope that we shall not be compelled to
have to recur again to this subject but that
the work will be proceeded with immediately.

that'they should not be allowed to shirk tbe

Territory of Idaho the Chinese have to pay
$5 a month for a mining license, as it is only
by a direct tax of the kind that they can be
made to contribute their fair share towards
the taxation of the country. We hope the
time is not far distant when we will take a

of $979 78, being amount of two claims, the
first being $529 88 for packing a cargo for
defendant, from Canoe Creek to Van Winkle,
in July, 1865; and thc second, $150, loss sustained by tho detention of plaintiff's train at
ft busy .season of the year, by reason of the
failure of delendant to supply a second cargo
as agreed on. The jury, after deliberating
lor half an hour, returned a general verdict
for plaintiff for $800.

of opinion thc Davis Company had shown
they did not abandon the ground in consequence of a conversation between the companies, but by non representation had failed
to establish their title, which in the opinion of
the jury are from the irregularity of their
records, The jury therefore submitted to the
Court that tbe 130 feet in dispute should be
divided between the Aurora and Davis companies.
