EN ROUTE TO BIG BEND.
(from   our   own   corrrspondknt.)
French Prairie House, 30th April,
(Between Seymour and tho Columbia.)
f have had an exceedingly pleasant trip so
far in company with your editorial friend.
Along the way up I noticed many changes
since last year. At Cache Creek there is a
good hotel, kept by Messrs. Semlin & Park ;
a telegraph oihco with Mr. Conway, Jr., as
operator, and an office for Barnard's Express.
Not far from the junction of tho Cache Creek
road with the waggon road, the traveler comes
to the celebrated "Boston" ranch. This is
one of the finest farms in the colony. The
proprietor keeps an hotel which receives an
excellent name from those who have stopped
at it. A short distance from "Boston's" is the
ranch of Messrs. Cewhill & Campbell. These
parties farm about two hundred acres of the
finest land one can meet with. It is irrigated
with the water from Cache Creek. Over one
hundred acres are under cereals, and about
thirty acres planted with potatoes, etc. Along
the Cache Creek road there is plenty of feed
for animals. I was somewhat disappointed in
not finding Mr. Kaye at Savana's Ferry. The
traveling public, however, will be glad to
know that before these lines meet the eye,
Mr. and Mrs. Kaye will have taken possession
of the house at the Ferry. The change will
be very much to the advantage of the public.
I took passage in a large canoe for Seymour
and paid $10. There being eighteen men
crowded into the boat, there was anything
but comfort in crossing. We were obliged
to paddle and pay as well. Some had to get
out and walk from Kamloops to Little Lake.
There are three good ranches along the lake.
The first is about nineteen miles from Kamloops, Mr. Duck being owner. Next belongs
to Mr. Martin, who is building a comfortable
dwelling house. He has sixty acres under
cultivation with grain. The third ranch be
longs to Messrs. Bennett & Co., who have about
thc same extent of land as Mr. Martin under
the plough. The farms look to be very much
improved for the short time they are under
tillage. The steamer Marten is rapidly ap.
proaching completion, under thc superintendence of Captain Moffatc and Mr. Thompson.
The men engaged work twelve hours a-day.
Tho steamer will be running at the specified
time, but her upper decks and cabins will not
be finished. There are bands of cattle and
pock animals grazing near Little Lake. With
respect to a trail round the lakes, I think there
is as much use for it as a spare pump to a man
who has paid for good water works. There
are places round the lakes, such as Cape Horn,
where the cutting would bo through hard
rock. There are other parts that require
a trail far more than round the lakes, such
as from one raining crock to another. If Mr,
Harper thinks a trail ncceseary, let him make
one at his own expense and charge a small
toll to those who use it. But when cattle can
be conveyed over the lakes in a few hours at
a cost less than men's wages to drive them
round, I think that a trail would not be patronised. There are numbers of boats on the
lakes, from 50 tons down to the smallest sized
canoe. They sail under every description of
canvas, and even flannel jackets are some
times improvised into sails. They^ are all
reaping a rich harvest. Seymour City is beautifully situated at the bead of lake Shuswap,
and has a commanding view of the lake. The
size and style of the buildings in tho town
impresses one with what I believe is fact, that
the Big Bend is a rich mining country. There
aro about twenty houses completed, and
several more in course of construction. They
vary in size from 40x30 down to 7x9. Some
aro two stories high. Amongst the best I may
enumerate the store of Mossrs. Smith & Ladner, a hotel for Mr. Delaporte and a hotel for
Mr. Hill. I havo never seen better buildings
in a new country than in Seymour. They are
both substantial and ornamental. The California miners so far seem well satisfied with
the country, and especially with our wayside
houses, of which they speak in terms of
praise. From Seymour to French Prairie the
trail is better than I expected. It will be
very easy to make a good road through to
the Columbia river, as there will be very little
stripping required to get on to a hard gravel
bottom. With a good road through to the
mines we will beat the Web-feet people so
badly they will bo ashamed of themselves.
No mining lun been dono yet on any of the
creeks, but preparations  to commence are
boing on rapidly. I am about to start tomorrow for French Creek, with 75 lbs. on my
back. I ask your sympathy.—Travelers make
French Prairie from Seymour the first day.
It is eleven miles. The hotel here is kept by
Mon. Faujas, and is 36x40. It has a good
dining room, with sleeping apartments. The
table and bar aie well kept. Mr. Faujas was
in the mines last fall, and from his experience
there was so well satisfied as to invest his
money here on the strength of the mines
turning out well. In conclusion, I must congratulate you on the Buccess of the Tribunk as
far as I have yet come. I am really surprised at the reception it is meeting with from
every one, as it is few newspaper enterprises
at first that meet with much success. The
people all seem to recollect the principles
which you so boldly and independently
espoused in the Sentinel last year, and they
want a paper now like the Tribune, that has
taken its stand to truthfully represent the
" well understood wishes of the people."
There is but one opinion, that to the denunciations of the Sentinel the repeal of the Gold
Tax is due, and not only the miners, but the
traders, packers and hotel keepers will benefit
largely by the abolition of a tax so obnoxious
in every respect. My next letter will be from
the mines. Shuswap.

LANDS AND WORKS DEPARTMENT.
Although the Lands and Works Department is one of the over-grown nnd huge
establishments which the people of this colony
are called upon to support in connection with
tho Government, when there is'ony real work
of the highest importance fro the welfare of
the country generally to be done, the department is found to be practically useless and in-
efficient. It is no secret that our merchants
have bcon putting forth all their energies for
some tim» past to meet the competition of
foreign traders in the Big Bend mines, and
that they have been forwarding large quanti
se only officials, we venture to assert lhat
thero would have been a practicable road to
the mines from Seymour before this, nnd our
merchants would not be in their present embarrassing position. Tho country has appropriate $17,000 to be expended on trails in the
Big Bend district. If Mr. Trutch will not do
his duty in seeing a trail made nt once to the
Oolumbin, it will be for the merchants, miners
and packers to take thc matter into their own
hands rather than nllow the interest of themselves and the country to be sacrificed by the
Inefficiency of a department that is a disgrace
to the country.
SALE OF TOWN LOTS.
Before many weeks will elapse, the Government will hold n public sale of town lots at
Seymour. Now, it is well known that a large
number  of people  have already  taken up

The public have little idea of the immense
staff at present in connection with the Lands
and Works Department. Just that people
may form some notion of ihe extent of the
establishment, we will enumerate the force at
present employed:

2d. Assist. Snrveyor-Generul, Mr. M'oberly
3d. Assist. Surveyor-General, Mr. Dewdney.
4th. Assist. Surveyor-General, Mr. Turnbull.

Besides these there are supervisors of roads
and others that we are unacquainted with.
The expense of such a department, as our
readers may imagine, is something enormous,'
and the return the people get for keeping up
such a huge establishment is really nothing.
The Surveyor-General knows something about
contracting. Now, if tho business of the
Lands and Works Department was given out
to him on tender, is there n man in this colony
who dot S 'iot believe that it would be all done

ROAD TOLLS.
From the Big Bend Mines.
Fully three months have elapsed since the
Administrator of the Governmont promised
to have arrangements made, through which he
would be enabled to remove the tolls levied
at Lytton on goods in transit to the Big Bend
mines. Although every one acknowledged
the practical necessity of taking immediate
action in a matter so vitally affecting the wel
fare of the country generally, nothing has
been done up to the present moment to carry
out the " well understood wishes of the people." The first excuse alleged for not removing the tolls months ago was, that Mr.
Wright had to be first arranged with for his
reversionary interest, and he was up country.
That plea is no longer tenable, Mr. Wright
having arrived at New Westminster many
weeks since. Seeing that goods are now
brought up the Columbia river and thrown
into the mines in competition with those from
this side, it behoves the Government to lay
aside at once the procrastinating spirit that
hangs over it and act immediately, so that
our merchants will not be driven out of the
markets of the colony. The season for forwarding goods into the mines is now far advanced, and the Government is guilty of a
gross breach of faith with the country in continuing the tolls so long at Lytton. There is
no disguising of the fact that the Government
is taking advantage of the merchants, and at
the same time of the miners, by the course it
is pursuing. It is too bad that the country's
progress is to be hindered by an effete Gov
ernment like that which is now sapping the
vitals of this unfortunate colony in so many
different ways.
Jull Description.—In our last issue we
mentioned that the body of a man had been
found floating in the Fraser, near Hope, by
an Indian. The following is a full description
of the deceased: "flight, about five feet ten
inches; apparently of fair complexion, with
light hair, (uncertain about the hair as it was
nearly all gone); the body was clad in a grey
under-shirt, white over-shirt, grey drawers
and socks, black cloth trowsers without pockets, (the pockets may have been cut out by
Indians,) well made double soled boots; in
short, the body had every appearance of
having been very respectably clothed. There
were no indications of foul play discerned."
In the absence of the resident magistrate, an
enquiry before the chief constable of Hope and
a number of resident inhabitants of the place
was held, but nothing to lead to the identification of deceased elicited. If any one in the
upper country can give information that would
possibly lead to the identification of the unfortunate man who has lost his life, he should
communicate with the resident magistrate
here, Mr. Saunders.
Mr. James Reardon, a miner, arrived here
direct from French Creek on Tuesday.    He
left the creek on account of ill health on the
26th   ultimo.     He  is  the  first arrival this
season direct from the mines.    We have re-
eeived  the  following  important intelligence
from  him.    Up  to the 26th no real mining
had been done on any of the creeks or gulches,  but preparations were in progress and
several  companies  would  soon be at work.
The snow had almost disappeared from the
bed of the creeks, but on the banks and hills
was still very deep.    Our informant, who is an
old California and Cariboo miner, is exceedingly well pleased with the appearance of the
Big Bend as a gold bearing country.    He
says it is very like the  Northern  mines   of
California in  Sierra county.   French Creek
Mr. Reardon describes as being on an average
250 feet wide, with steep hanks on each side.
There is a vast deal more water in it than in
Williams   Creek,  probably   as  much   as  in
Lightning Creek.     Claims are located for a
distance of two and a half miles up from the
Discovery claim,  which  is a mile from the
mouth of the creek.    A great many old Cari-
booites have claims on French Creek.    Upwards of two hundred compapies have taken
up ground.     Tlie . Discovery   company was
building a wheel, preparing a pump and setting sluices.    A full interest in this claim had
been sold for $2,500.    The saw mill belonging
to Romano was not finished.    The proprietor
paid $1 per lb. for packing oyer some of the
machinery.   The mill is at the mouth, which
is not considered a very eligible place for it.
The banks of the creek, as well as the country generally, are heavily timbered with cedar.
A town is springing up on a flat about six feet I nominal:
above the bed of the creek on tho soutli side.!cents; No
Six houses were already erected and others Sugar, 60
were in progress.   On McCullough's  Creek
claims   were    located   up   to   its   source,
a distance of some three or fonr miles.  There
is very  little  water in this creek.   Our informant  saw a piece  of gold taken out of
Gallacher's claim worth $17.    Gallacher was
taking out good pay, but  he was trrvubled a
good deal  with  boulders.    On Camp Creek
there were a considerable number of people
prospecting.    Mining tools were very scarce,
and up to the time Mr. Reardon left provisions
were rather scarce also.    From Wilson's landing to French Creek is a distance of ten or
twelve miles.     The trail crosses Camp and
sequence. It is Mr. Black's opinion that
goods cannot be takon across the present
Government trail before the 1st of July next
unless it is improved. It was attempted to
take two head of cattle into the mines, but it
was found impracticable after they had gone
fifteen miles. There was a report that a new
creek had been struck. George Weaver and
a party of four men had gone up the Columbia river about forty miles on a prospecting
expedition. Some of the passengers who
came hy tlie steamer Oregon arrived at tlie
head of Ihe lakes in eleven days from San
Francisco. They v ent up from Yale to
Savana's Ferry by the express stages. Flour
was rated on thc Columbia at from 35 to 45
cents per lb. Henry Evans, a brother of
George Evans the packer, died at Seymour on
the 1st of April lust of mountain fever. He
belonged to Oregon, and was aged about 38
years. Samuel Weir of Williams Creek was
at Seymour in a state of mental derangement.
He jumped jnto the lake from the deck of a
boat and swam ashore. He also broke through
a window of a house in 'Seymour, at night,
and was subsequently found out in the woods.
He was brought back and placed under restraint. Freight across the lakes was 2{ cts.
per lb. It is supposed that after the steamer
is running, it will be reduced to I cent per lb.
There were at least 3,000 head" of cattle at
Kamloops. Campbell & Co. had about 300
head; French Tic, 300 head; Harper, 600
head; Oregon drovers, 400 head; Tuomy, 250
head; French Joe, 200 head; lots in the
hands of small dealers, 850 head; total, 3,000
head. This estimate, of course, is only an
approximation, but it will be found pretty near
the exact number. Goods were not selling at
Seymour, and the following prices are only

LETTER FROM SEYMOUR.
Seymour, 10th May, 1866.
To Editor Biutish Columbia Tribdnk:
Sir,—You state that the expression contained in the report of the grand jury of Yale
was strongly in favor of the County Court
Amendment Bill, extending the jurisdiction
to the amount of $500. I must say their
opinion '3 identical with that of the Whole
population of this tipper country ; those who
opposed tho Bill, as you truly say, did not represent the interests of the country ; no, they
represented their own interests. One wanted
to be puisne judge, another was playing for
the AttOrney-Geiieralsliip, and the balance of
the opposition were like so many simpletons
whipped up to the sticking point to stand out
against tho Bill, which they have done, not
having sense enough to discover the difference
between the ambition of their leaders and tho
people's wants. The legal adviser of the
Crown, I see, has done nil in his power to defeat the passage of the ordinance, and finally
succeeded in having a suspending clause inserted. The hon. member for Cariboo East
used all his eloquence against this Bill, contrary to the interests of his constituency. The
hon. representative of the people of Lillooet
and Douglas, alias New Westminster, was
shocked at the idea of County Court judges
having such power, he believed it would affect
the lumber and coal trade, and the amount of
damage Captain Stamp's saw mill would sustain would be incalculable. Now, sir, how
easy it is to perceive the selfishness of this
New Westminster clique, who would actually
sacrifice the general prosperity of this colony
in order to carry out their own ends; and if
such hon. gentlemen are henceforth called

ADDITIONAL.
From Mr. Williams, who arrived here on
Saturday evening last direct from McCullough's
Creek, we have the following further information from the mines: Our informant, who is a
miner, left McCulloch's Creek on the 2d inst.,
and is on his way to New Westminster for
medical treatment. He reports about 3,000
men spread over the mines, although the current report places the number at live thousand.
All the ground on French, McCullough and
(lamp Creeks is staked off, and many persons
finally consummated, and if not, that his excellency the Governor will break up this
bogus Legislative Council nnd take the responsibility on himself, supported by the
people, in an honest and true light.
This place is improving rather slowly, there
seems to be a want of confidence as to
whether this is to be tin? place or not for the
town that is to be the head of lake navigation.
The reason of this doubt is altogether owing
to the discovery of another route, from an
arm of the Shuswap lake some distance to the
south and east of this place. It appears that
reports have been made by reliable persons,
that a pass has been discovered from the above
said arm of the lake to the Columbia river
that is lower by thousands of feet than the
present Moberly or Government trail. Parties
have just crossed, who say there is no enow
Newspaper Personalities.—We wish the
public to distinctly understand that our aim
in establishing this journal was not to bandy
personalities with an unscrupulous Governmont hireling newspaper like that published at New Westminster, but to aid
in redressing the anomalies and abuses
of the Government, to spread information
concerning the resources of the country, and
to endeavor to raise the colony from its
present state of depression to a condition of
wealth and importance by drawing a population into it that would contribute to the development of the vast resources which it contains. If we keep these objects steadily in
view, without turning aside to notice the scurrilous personal attacks made upon us, and
prompt d by envy at our success, we believe
we will be accomplishing objects that will en-

said that she had very little difficulty in getting up the river.     Twelve soldiers from Col-
ville  had come to the mines, but had not
brought, their arms with them as reported.
Very little jumping had taken place on any of
the creeks.    In   a   few   cases   where   thc
parties had not represented the claims before they were laid over last year, some pe
sons going in this season had taken them up. nince he would locate.
There will be litigation in consequence. The]r,he rCport that very
arrival of fifty boats up the Columbia had
cheapened provisions at tho mines and flour
was offered at $40 per cwt., with prices tending still downward. Mr. Reardon is of opinion
that at. least 1,500 men arc in the mines.
Every one seems well pleased with the country
and high hopes are indulged as to the future.
Quartz can be seen all over the country cropping out of the ground. In crossing to Seymour, Mr. Reardon met two men taking two
head of cattle and one carcass into the mines.
[sinking has been chiefly through gravel.
Mr. Williams is a partner in one of the companies, and he entertains the greatest confidence that the result of the prospecting will
be highly satisfactory. The indications of
gold were very good up to the time our Informant left. Mr. O'Reilly had arrived at the
mines and was paying the different creeks a

little mining had been
done on any of the creeks on account of the
snow, but preparations for commencing were
actively going forward. Some parties who
had arrived loafed around for a few d.iys and
were talking about returning. The place will
be well rid of such characters.

ment trail there are several feet ofsnow, it being
impassable  for  pack  animals  for six weeks
more.    That  the discovery  of this new pass
is a most important aud most valuable one to
this colony cannot be denied, and the Government should  Immediately  take   the   proper
steps to have it at once explored, it being the
only show we have to compete with our fast
and energetic neighbors of Washington Territory.    There  is  here  at present Assistant
Surveyor-General Moberly,  and  his  detachment of explo-ro-rers, laying back iu ordinary,
carelessly waiting for active service.    A few-
days ago his standing army was reinforced,
Capt. Lay ton arriving here with a number of
raw recruits (from the different runch-a-rces)
to act as  pioneers in crossing the mountains.
It is disgusting to see this useless brigade living on the sweat of honest men's brows, laying around here in the lap of luxury resting
on their marrow-bones.    The plan that our
Chief  Commissioner of   Lands   and  Works
adopted in having Government act as its own
contractor,   will,  in  a  few years, leave this
colony in bankruptcy,   if it has not done so
already.   It is  plain   enough  to perceive or
judge what he is doing, from the gang he has
attached to him ; one spends $50,000 of the
public money iu building a trail to Kootenay,
which is impracticable i'w animals; tho other
explores and builds a trail from Shuswap lake
to  the Columbia river, at an elevation high
enough to make it Impraotioable also, for the
greater part ol the year.  All tills expenditure
may be considered  a dead loss, and before
any more money is expended  on the present
trail, I he exploration of this lately discovered
pass ought to be tho first act of the (iovern-
ment,  then  invite  tenders  to complete the
work, and  discharge  to a man this army of
exploration  whose  actual expenses  for one
season would  build a waggon road norois the
summit from the lake to the Columbia river.
It is all very nice to look  at their beautiful
maps, with hills, valleys and tributaries laid
down that never existed.     The journal, also,
is a most interesting piece of literary composition, which in all probability will liirnish the
first teaching of the youth of British Oolimn
bia, and the  proudest  recollections of their
childhood will hereafter be the iidventuros, discoveries and achievements of the army of the
j Lands and Work* Department.     Skyhook, I

A Moonlkhs Month.—The month of February, 1866, which is now gone, will be marked
in tho astronomical calendar as the month
which had no full moon! January had two
lull moons, and March had two; but February
had none. Of course this peculiar conjuncture
of periods that makes the full moon show her

goes out, is a rare thing in nature—but how
rare, do you suppose, gentle reader? It has

not since tho time of Washington ; nor since
the discovery of America by Columbus ; no,
nor since the Christian era, nor since the fall
