CARIBOO.
(correspondence of tiie tribune.)
Williams Creek, 8th May, 1S66.
The season here has been very backward
and cold, keeping the snow high and tlie water
too low for the miners ; but the last few days
it has got milder, and the boys are beginning
to have a chance to operate to advantage.
Extensive preparations havo been made for
working many of the claims above Richfield,
and some companies have been taking out
good wages up there all winter. The Bedrock Flume Company have been at work since
last fall blasting through the rock, and have,
by the perseverance and energy of the foreman, W. Miller, succeeded, so that there is
now no obstacle to prevent its speedy completion, and there is little fear of its success
as a great and profitable enterprise.
The Tontine, Forest Hill and other hill
claims, down to the canon, are going to be
worked with hydraulic power, and are ready
to commence as soon as the water commences
to flow freely. N
The Foster, Campbell Company are at work
with good prospects.
The claims in the creek near Barkerville are
awaiting the completion of the drain, which
will be up in about two months, as they are
working it out of the Cariboo shaft now.
The Aurora Company are commencing to
work out of their new tunnel.
'   The Cameron Company, Dead-Broke Company and Adams Company, have been paying
more than wages all winter.
The Forest Rose have struck pay in their
new tunnel.
The Prairie Flower Company have commenced work by running a new tunnel and
drain to facilitate their opeiations this season.
This claim is expected to be a "big thing"
this year.

What seems to be thc biggest thing struck
in Cariboo this season is the Discovery claim
weeks ago, and what is now going down, it
will be a significent fact that Cariboo is not
played out, for those shipments are pretty
good to be just before the spring work commences.

YALE COURT HOUSE.
To tiie Editor British Columbia Tribune:
Sir,—You will probably recollect that
among other appropriations made by the
Legislative Assembly, was one for the erecting of a Court House at Yale, the want of
which has long been felt, and which has been
duly presented by the Grand Jury for several
years past. We would fain enquire why
something is not done cowards the completion of that object. The- most favorable
season is now upon us for such work, and [intermission,
contractors could at least afford to give in
tenders lower than if late iu the fall, besides
being of advantage to the building itself,
having ample time to become perfectly dry
and seasoned before the commencement of
frost.    We all recollect the building of the
ruins.    Letters to   llie   pauuma  Herald  Bays

Hild Ovir.—Owing lo a press of matter
we hB?e been obliged to hold over a leading
article on the Steam Subsidy already in type,
■nntil our next issue.
ROAD TOLLS.
The Government" is playing what may be
termed a smart game in reference to the road
tolls. More than three months since the Administrator of the Government informed the
Legislative Council that he would remove the
toll gate at Lytton the moment Mr. G. B.
Wright's eiaims were arranged. So far as
we CRn learn, Mr. Wright has been settled
with tome time ago, and yet the toll gate still
remains. Is this acting in good faith with the
country, or giving that relief to our commerce with the new mines which the Administration pledged itself to afford? Most certainly not; and such couduct on the part of
the Government is deserving of the severest
censure. With goods pouring into the Big
Bend country by the Columbia that pay no
road tolls or tonnage dues, how can it be expected thai our merchants, who pay both,
will be able to compete with their neighbors?
It cannot be expected; and the result of the
Government policy will bo to drive the merchants on this route over to the American
side. Th"re never was a fairer prospect in this
colony for business than at the opening of this
season, but the supiness of the Government
in connection with trails, and their bad faith
in reference to the nnd tolls have interposed
to throw the merchants back further than
they ever were before
Up to thc present time very little has been
dona towards the improvement of the trail
across the divide from Seymour to the Big
Bend. The Government have Un men employed upon it, and the opinion of persons
who have lately crossed over is thnt it will
take at least five weeks before animals will be
able to venture across. This is certainly
pleasant (?) news for the merchants of the
colony who havo their goods blockaded in.
Seymour. There is some satisfaction in contemplating that through the active energy of
Americans, by the rival route of the Columbia river, the miners will not be forced to leave
from a want of provisions. The Government
may rest assured thnt there is a day of reckoning
ahead when it will have to answer to the people for its gross mismanagement in connection
with the loss the merchants of the colony are
now sustaining in not having a road into the
mines. We venture to say that if some accident happened to Mr. Trutch's beautiful suspension bridge, he would find time very soon
to go to the spot to set it right. Of course
he would, but then the Alexandra bridge is
Editor British Columbia Tribuhb:
Sir,—A gentleman has just arrived among
us direct from Colville, who has furnished us
with some valuable information respecting the
trade on the Columbia, the rate of freight,
and the line of the most practicable and earliest
route from the Shuswap hike to the Columbia
river. He speaks of the road from Wallula
to the Dalles as being lined with waggons and pack trains, all with enrgoes for the
Big Bend. The steamer Forty-Nine has made
<er second trip in six days from the Dalles to
Death Rapids. She charges $200 per ton at
present. Capt. White allows she cost $22,000,
and that she will clear herself in at least four
trips at the above rate of freight. The cap
tain intends to charge thc same amount of
freight until such time as transportation of
i'oods commences to be carried over the summit between the lakes and the river from Seymour, which, according to latest accuints,
will be two months yet, there being fifteen
feet of snow on the divide. Even when the
snow is off, we will have hard work to com
pete with the Columbia river route ; in fact I
cannot see how we can do it, is goods can be
landed at Death Rapids from Wallula for
six cents per lb. Now, the freight from Portland   to   Wallula   cannot   amount   to   any

attributable to the same influence that the

new pass that has been discovered, from the
mouth of Cherry creek to the Columbia river.
He speaks very highly of the practicability of
having a road clear of snow through this pass,
and fit for traffic very early in the spring of
the year, as there has been no snow on it for
the last six weeks. There appears to be
stretches of twelve or fourteen miles of natural
road in plaecs through this new pass; the
supposition is that a road will be run from
Cherry creek to the Columbia—tho terminus
of which will strike the Columbia above upper
Arrow lake at a distance of about thirty-five
miles. Puck trains can go through this new
route with dispatch at present, there boing the
best of feed from the time they leave until
they arrive at the river. Something might be
done by First Assistant Surveyor-General
Moberly to find the crowd under him some-
^^ thing to do, in place of laying back  in indo-
out that he had only taken an extra quantity jlence doing nothing.    All the business corn-
mouth sentenced a Chinaman to six months
imprisonment for stealing a piece of pork from
the telegraph company, worth only five dollars !   The unfortunate Celestial pleaded guilty
and threw himself on the mercy of the Court.
But there was no mercy, it appears, in the
breast of the judicial functionary, for he
meted out the very fullest ixtbnt of the
law. We think the community will agree
with us that the sentence is altogether too
severe and should be commuted by the Executive. It is well known that ihe telegraph
company is one of the most " picayunish"'

THE BOMBARDMENT OF VALPARAISO.!such a length of time without aufficient came
being shown. This decision alone of the
magistrate should make the Government recall him at once.
It will be seen by reference to another part
of our issue that the Spanish fleet has bora-
harded the Chillian port of Valparaiso, destroying some $20,000,000 worth of property
belonging to English, American and French
merchants. It is attempted in certain quarters to cast a good deal of blame upon Admiral Denman for allowing the Spanish fleet
to attack the town. We think it will be lound
that the British admiral has acted strictly in
accordance with his instructions from home in
the course he has pursued, and the public may
rest satisfied that he has protected the persons and property of H. M. subjects to the
utmost extent of his power. So fur as we
oan understand, thare was nothing to prevent
Commodore Rodgers from carrying out his
threat of opposing the Spanishr ionclads with
his monitors. It is premature to pasj any
decided judgment on the proceedings, as we
have not the full particulars before us.
A NICE STATE OF AFFAIRS.
Although it has been stated by the Surveyor-General that his deputy, Mr. Moberly,
wub employed ou the trail from Seymour, we
have it from a party who has just arrived
here direct, that the Denuty Surveyor is at
French Creek, and that there are only ten
men 6till at work on the trail. We would a*k
if thc Administrator of the Government will
not strike a blow at th> mismanagement of
the Lands and Works department that will at
least release his honor from any complicity
in the disgraceful conduct of a department
that is now shutting our goods out of the
mines to the certain ruin of the merchants of
the Colony? By going into the interior at
the present timo to see for himself, Mr. Birch
would prove that he is not indifferent to the
welfare of tho country. Wo would warn the
Government against trifling any longer with

STRANGE CONDUCT.
Savana's Ferry, 16th May, 1866.
To thb Editor British Colombia Tribuni:
Sir,—We have had, to-day, the pleasure of
witnessing the mooring of the anxiously
looked for steamer Marten. The machinery
is being placed in her very fast, and it is expected that in ten days she will steam out for
Seymour. Her lines are very good, and in
almost every detail resemble the Alexandra.
It is a pity that the Company's servant*,
able as they are, should be backward in the
usages and practices of civilized life, an instance of which I will give you : Messrs. Kay
& Chapperon now hold the charter of Savana's
Ferry, and in their right could have opposed
the passage of the steamer across their ropes,
however far it was from their intention to do
so. Everyone supposed that Capt. Monat
would at least pass the compliment to the
owners by asking their consent to the lower
ing of thc ropes. Contrary to expectation,
however, the gallant captain gave the necessary orders, entirely oblivious of the invasion
of privute property he was thereby committing. Viator.
| We think the conduct of Captain Mouat,
in the above case, requires explanation.—Ed.]
Ecclesiastical,—The Rev. J. B. Good,
late ol Nanaimo, arrived here last week and
celebrated divine service in the Episcopal
Church yesterday. Wo understand that there
is a probability of Mr. Good being permanently placed here. There will be a meeting
held in the Parsonage this evening at 7
o'clock, of persons favorable to the settlement of a clergyman in this town. We hope
the meeting will be largely attended.

up to his eyes in clover, while his aid-de-camps
lay over in the mountain cities up to their
eyes in grass. If Mr. Trutch is to remain iu
New Westminster, the Administrator of the
Government would do much good by coming
up here himself, and let the Commissioner remain in New Westminster patching up old
roads and studying court effect. How long
this state of affairs will last we cannot tell,
bul there is one thing certain, they cannot
last long, or else the valley of the Fraser, the
natural highway of British Columbia, will be
closed up and shut out from communication
with the richest and most extensive section of
this colony, and, in the oi inion of all, this will
be by the neglect of the Lands und Works
Department. It is strongly asserted thnt the
Surveyor-General would be a very useful man
to this colony if he never had-iuiything to do
with the above department, a position which
in fict makes him useless. Kamloops.
Kamloops, May 16th, 1866.
Cherrt Crrik Silvir Mine.—Major Robertson returned here last evening from the
Portland Mining Company's lead at Cherry
Creek. He has set men to work to develop
it, and speaks encouragingly of the prospects.
We hopo the Government will hold out inducements to the company to bring the ore
this way instead of shipping it by the Columbia river.
Population or Bio Bund.—From the best
sources of information we learn that there
are at least 2,500 men at present in the Big
Bend country.

YALE, MONDAY,  MAY 21, 1866.
From the Big Bend Mines.
Encouraging.—Fully three   months have
elapsed since  the first   immigrants   passed
through Yale bound for the Big Bend mines.
A steady stream has since then been going
in, until the number of men now at the new
El Dorado cannot be less than two thousand
five hundred. When we consider that the
country is new, with men rushing in far too
early in the season, it is extraordinary, and
we think highly encouraging, that up to the
present time only three men have returned
here from the mines, and two of those who
came back were obliged to leave from illness
contracted in packing large amounts across
the mountain from Seymour. About fifteen
or twenty men, we are informed, have returned to Kamloops from the mines. They
Rtate that the snow on the creeks was so deep
they could not got properly to work and consequently thought it better to leave for a few
weeks and then return. The men express
themselves well satisfied with the country,
and have accepted work at Ksmloops for
their board rather than come any further
down, so anxious are they to return the
moment the snow is off.
Compstition.—We have heard some parties
assert that the Columbia river route will beat
this side out of the Big Bend trade. We are
of a different opinion, and for the following
reason: Freight at present to Savana's Ferry
is only four cents a pound. In the course of
a few days the steamer will be running, when
the rate across the lakes will be reduced to one
cent. A good trail across the divide and
goods can be taken to the Columbia from
Seymour for three cents, making the total
only eight cents a pound. From Walla Walla
to Colville alone the freight of goods must
amount at least to eight cents, so that we
have the advantage on our side if the Government either abolish the tonnage dues and
road tolls, or place the same imposts on the
poods coming up the Columbia river that
exist on this side.
A young man arrived here on Wednesday
last from Camp Creek, which place he left on
the 7th inst.    He reports a good deal of snow
on the creek when he left.    Very little prospecting had been done, and men were contenting themselves  with   preparing lumber,
building houses and getting ready to commence operations.    Claims being laid over to
the 1st of June, there is no necessity for representing them until that time.   Camp Creek
is considered one  of   the   most   promising
creeks in the Big Bend district, and is ail
taken  up by miners.    Only one shaft   had
been commenced, and it was only down fifteen
feet.    Bed-rock had  not been struck.    Our
informant confirms the report of there being
a large  population  iu the mines.    Very few-
men had left the mines, and confidence in the
richness of the country was unabated.    The
steamer Forty-Nine  had arrived at Kirby's
Landing, on the 6th inst., on her second trip
up.    She brought 110 passongers and 40 tons
of freight.    Colville flour was selling at 40
cents per lb.; Oregon flour, 60 cents; bacon,
$1.    Gum boots were scarce.    Before the arrival of the Forty-Nine the price of provisions
was high.    There were TEN MEN! working
on the Government trail when our informant
passed.    The steamer Marten was round at
Savana's   Ferry   getting in   her machinery.
From  the fact of everything having  been
previously  arranged   by the intelligent and
active engineer of the steamer and his assistant  who  is  from   the   foundry   of  Spratt
&  Kremlier,  it was thought by the first of
June everthing would be in order for the first
trip.    Every one who has seen the vessel is
loud  in  praise of her beauty.    A California
carpenter  who came here from Seymour a
tew  days since  says  that he was perfectly
astonished to see so fine a steamer built in
such an out-of-the-way place.     The work, he
declares,  is equal  to any  he  has seen on
steiuneTs in California, and the symmetry and
beauty of her build could not be excelled.
LATER.
is that there has not been an exodus from the
mines before this. It certainly shows the
faith meu have in the country, when they
cling so tennciously to it. The steann-r Marten
has arrived here and is getting in her machinery. She struck a rock on her way down,
but sustained no damage by the collision.

From a young man who arrived hero Inst
evening, and who left French Creek on the
12th inst., we learn that two companies had
commenced taking out pay. The Discovery
Company on the 11th washed up 8-J oz. they
were greatly troubled with boulders. The
Muuro Company took out 22oz in three days.
Several other companies were setting to work
but the water in the Creek was rising very

Court House for Yalb.—The Legislative
Council voted a sum sufficient to erect a Court
House in this town, but like the management
of the Lands and Works Department in other
parts of the colony, there is no sign of anything being done. When tho Supreme Court
was sitting here lately, Judge i>gbie was
obliged to refer to the want of accommodation that existed, and the inconvenience of
having no Court House to meet in is felt here
constantly by the public who have to resort to
the County Court. We persume the Chief Commissioner is delaying the building until the
rniny season sets in and the public will have
to pay an increased price for the work that is
to be done. Wfty is this work not given out
at once.
Misplacbd Confidknci.—A few days 6inee
Mr. James Loring, a well known Caribooite,
had a parcel of bank notes amounting to $300,
which were rolled up in paper in his room at
New Westminster. A party who had the
entree to the place thinking he would make a
haul on the eve of his departure for Big Bend,
quietly slipped the bundle into his pocket and
started off to the mines. When the fellow

press he would have seen that the Eraser
has produced salmon over 75 lbs. in weight.

YALE, MONDAY,  MAY 21, 1866.
THE BANK OF
A FAMILY  BORN  WITH GOLD SPOONS
IN THEIR MOUTHS.
[From the Philadelphia Press.]
The Cobourg family, during the last fifty
years, have been noted for their good luck.
Prince Leopold, of Saxe Cobourg, whose
whole income was a shabby £300 a year, married the heiress of the British throne in 1816;
dropped into a life pension of £50,000 for
life, on her death in 1817 ; was chosen King
of Greece in 1830, but declined; became
King of Belgium in 1881, and reigned for
twenty-five years, with great success. His
sister, a poor widow, though " a born princess,"
(us Willis called Piccolomini,) married one of
the English Royal Dukes, and their only surviving child now occupies the British throne;
her daughter will one day be Queen of Prussia. Another of the Cobourg family married
a daughter of Louis Phillippe of France. Yet
another is father of the present King of
Portugal. Leopold's eldest sou espoused an
Austrian Arch-duchess, and his only daughter
is Empress of Mexico. To crown all, the
sovereignty of the Danubian principalities
(that is, of Moldavia and Wallachia, united
under one administration since December,
1861, under the title of Roumania,) has become vacant by the deposition of the Hospo-
dur, Priuco Alexandre John Conza, and has
been offered to the Count de Flanders, second
pon of the late King Leopold of Belgium. It
cannot be said that this is an unimportant
sovereignty, for the population of Roumania
exceeds 4,000,000, (that of Belgium is 4,800,-
000,) and its regular army numbers 15,450
men, and with the addition of the frontier
guard aud 5,000 mounted police, amounts to
a force of 28,000 men. Though Roumania
pays an annual tribute of $80,000 to the
Porte, ils sovereign has a life tenure of his
dignity—unless when, as iu the case of Prince
Conza, he be dismissed by the unanimous desire of the people.
The curious thing is that another of the
lucky Cobourgs ehould have been offered
another vacant throne. Leopold, we suspect,
fonnd the cap and purse of Fortunatus, ahout
tho time that he married Princess Charlotte
of England.
It is stated lhat the Count de Flanders will
not accept the crown of Roumania, though
he resolved to defer his intended journey to
Italy, in order to receive thc deputation
which the Roumanian parliament announced
they would send. Having succeeded to one
fourth of the large property left by his father,
and having a great love for the fine arts, it is
*aid that he proposes to live en grand signeur,
remaning unmarried, and visiting many lands.
He is not yet 29 years old, but being afflicted
with deafness, is afraid that he coulU not
discharge the duties of a Sovereign. At tho
name time, the King of Hanover is blind, and
of the remaining rulers of Europe it is hard
to say whether most of them are mad or bad.

WONDERFUL OPTICAL ILLUSIONS.
Professor Pepper,  delivering lectures on
optics, in London, gives some new and astonishing experiments in illustration of optical
illusions, the most remarkable of which arc
called the " Modern Delphic Oracle," and the
"Fairy Casket."   In introducing the former,
the Professor calls upon the audience to call
to mind ancient Greece.   The curtain rises,
and  the interior of a Grecian temple is disclosed.    Drapery in tlie back-ground is pushed
on one side, and a figure classically costumed
and reading intently a scroll, which he holds
in one hand, approa^hps.   The Professor ex
plains that the figure    .ust be supposed to represent a noble Athenian, erudite and highly
gifted.   Through an acquaintanceship which
he had formed with one of the priests of Iris,
the  individual  gets  possession  of a sacred
scroll, which informs him that, by means of
certain charms and incantations, he can hold
converse with the dead.   He proceeds to do
so at once, and after some formalities calls
upon Socrates.    Slowly the curtain, through
which the Athenian before appeared, is drawn
aside, and a head apparently floating through
the air, is seen.  TI- 'a seems to be no mistake
about the head b-..ug human.    It is, apparently, Socrates, and seemingly  "all alive."
Gradually the eyes open and look about most
naturally, and, in obedience to the demand of
the Athenian, the voice of Socrates is heard
pronouncing his own opinion of the decision
of his judges.    To render the illusion as real
as possible, an instrument is placed in front of
the stage which has tCie effect of throwing a
strong reflection upon any object which comes
between it and the papered wall at thc back
of the stage.    The reflection of the head, and
the  head alone,  on  thc back-ground, ndds
much to the bewilderment with which every
spectator, not in the secret, witnesses it.   Besides, as the head delivers itself of the beautiful lines with which it is intrusted, the head
is observed to move with each articulation to
the voice.    Yet the whole is, as the Professor
takes some  trouble  to remind his audience
when nny fresh cause for surprise is unfolded,
nothing more than a simple illusion.
The "fairy casket" is equally surprising.
It consists of a strong table, some four feet
high, with four legs, which are open to the
inspection of all. On (he table is deposited
a large glass box of neatly the same size as
the table. The whole is covered with drapery,
when it is brought in front of the stage, close
to the footlights. The closest inspection is
invited. On the covering being removed, the
table and glass box, as above described, appear. The glass box seems to contain black
velvet and charcoal.
The Professor opens the box and fills it
still further with what appears te be more
charcoal. He then orders his assistant to
shut down the glass lid and cover the box.
In a few minutes thc box is uncovered, and it
appears to be filled with white satin instead
of black velvet, and roses instead of charcoal.
A white satin cushion is taken out of the box,
nnd after it a real live fairy is handed up from
THE NEW ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH WIRE.
The project of laying a telegraph cable
across the Atlantic, from the shores of Ireland to the coast of Newfoundland, twice attempted and twice a failure, will be renewed
in the month of July of the present year
under better auspices than ever before. The
experience of the first undertaking only
serves to confirm confidence in the practicability of the enterprise. In the construction
of this third cable important modifications
have been introduced, rendering the wire
stronger, more flexible and more elastic than
its predecessor of last year. The appliances
for paying out also have been so far improved
that in the event of a " hitch" occurring, the
cable can be returned on board the Great
Eastern without the hazardous operation of
transferring the wire from the stern to the
bows of the vessel. Three ships will be employed in the laying. In consequence of
legal difficulties preventing the old telegraph
companies from raising the requisite capital
for the new undertaking, another company
has been formed, mainly out of the shareholders of the other corporations. The new
company is called the " Anglo-American
Telegraph Company." Its capital is £600,000,
and by the terms of its incorporation it will
receive nothing if the cable fails, but $150,000
a year, or 26 per cent, if it succeeds. As to
the probability of recovering the old cable,
scientific men are as sanguine as they are ol
the triumphant success of the forthcoming
venture. Among other curious facts mentioned at the telegraph meetings recently held
at Manchester and Liverpool, was this, that
the submerged wire is at the present time
more perfect as to insulation than on the day
it left Valencia Bay.
Writing for Fame, not for Monet.—The
Soleil of Paris contains a. letter from Victor
Hugo, in which the veteran writer declines the
offer made by the editor of £20,000 for his
new work, " Les TravnilleurR de la Mer,"
which he intended to publish in tlio shape of
a■fmilloton-i Victor Iliigo'says-:-" Your offer
is one of the most splendid ever offered to a
writer. I admit its magnificence; but the
question of art is for me above all considerations, nnd your offer of £20,000 cannot overcome my scruples n>- an artist. I am convinced that "Les Trnvailleurs do la Mer"
ought not to be cut up into fauitlotons. Perhaps that mode of publication would suit the
romance of " Quatre-vingt-Treize," which is
the work I am at present engaged ou.

The Trichina Panic.—The excitement
about the trichina disease lias had, and is still
having, a very great effect in diminishing tho

The late rumor that the disease had actually
made its appearance in this country will not
tend to allay the public fear in the matter

The Barijacoas Minks.—The news from
Barbacoas continues to be of a lugubrious
character. A correspondent in Tumaco writes
that with the exception of himself and one
other, no miner was left in the port on the
7th instant, the date of his letter. The rest
had either left for Barbacoas or been taken
back by the two schooners. The authorities
in Barbacoas, cither to prevent an accumulation of white paupers, or from some disinterested motive, are sending those who are willing to go, into the interior. Thirty had
already been dispatched by the Governor,
with three months provisions, and negroes or
Indians to carry the same. A great many
have made up their minds to explore the
country thoroughly, and go right through
into Cundmamarca and the Atlantic States.
We hope that all, and believe that some of
them, will meet with success. Our correspondent was to start in a few days for Guapi,
to explore that region, which is said to be
very rich.
Women in Montana.—A citizen recently
received a letter from a friend at Virginia
City, Montana Territory, says the Wisconsin
Capital, in which he gives much advice and
information, among which is the following:
"I  would  never bring a family here, as

The box is again covered and uncovered.
The result is that the black velvet and charcoal
again appear in the interior. The contents of
the box are ajrain produced. They consist of a
large black cushion and a most interesting
looking little negro, who, after jumping
out of the box, throws himself in a kneeling
attitude, and appealing to the audience, says,
'.'-Am I not a man and a brother?" These
are the two principal illusions which have been,
we understand, drawing such vast numbers
to the Polytechnic ever since their production.
Chinese Newspaper.—The first number of
the Chinese newspaper published in London
by Professor Summers, under thc title of the
" Flying
faster than men, and they very soon become
dissatisfied with their husbands and take up
with other men, and that is the last of them.
You may have a woman with mind enough to
stick by you, but, if so, she will do better than
the women who have come here by hundreds,
even old married people.
^"Scotland bids fair to rival Pennsylvania
in that new source of wealth which consists in

Leopold, and the close of thc civil war iu
America; next a dissertation upon railways,
their usefulness, economy, and other advantages ; and lastly, some information which it
must have puzzled the worthy professor to
put into Chinese, viz: advertisements of English products and business, patent cartridges,
steam plows, matches, Colt's revolvers, etc.
The second number contains a map of Europe.
