HOPE AND ITS ENVIRONS.
To the Editor oy thk B. C. Tribune :
Sir,—As you are good enough to imagine
some of your subscribers, who may be unacquainted with the neighborhood ef Hope,
might be interested by the perusal of a few
jottings of my own in connection with a
recent visit to that delightful spot, I cheerfully comply with your invitation, to furnish
you with a copy of the same, hoping also that
they may not be unacceptable to those of
your readers who may be already acquainted
with this locality, since no two persons see a
place with the same eyes, and things which
make an impression on one mind may have
passed unnoticed by another.
From Yale to Hope.
To a stranger the voyage down the river
from Yale to Hope must always prove as
interesting and novel as it is exciting and
swift; but to enjoy it thoroughly, there is, to
my mind, no mode of transit equal to the
canoe, well manned by natives accustomed to
the navigation of this treacherous stream.
It wan on a beautiful summer's day that
the writer commenced his trip by canoe,
having an engagement at Hope for the evening. Yale, embosomed by hills, which seem
as though they kept watch over its busy and
enterprising inhabitants, looked quite picturesque and gay, yet dusty and hot, as, on that
Sunday afternoon we swept down the river,
with our Red Cross floating at the bow ; and
soon we were miles on our way, now cautiously crossing bars where, but a few years before,
many thousands were greedily at work washing up the golden deposits that had laid there
so many centuries, uncared for and unknown;
and now gliding pleasantly along over the
unruffled surface, catching, at efjry turn of
the river, some fresh peep of grand moun-
t»in scenery, so peculiar to this country; and,
after a little more than an hour's run, our
stout-hearted and willing crew announced the
near completion of our journey, and in
another moment or two we had rounded the
last point aud Hope stood full in view.
Appearance of Hope.
Beautifully located, we may, without exaggeration, affirm this ghost of a town to be.
The little island which confronts tbe principal
buildings and divides the river iato two parti,
so soon to be re-united, gives a wonderful relief to the eye, and is, I should think, of considerable value in a commercial aspect. The
Onward, with her gallant and favorite commander, was just recalling her errant passengers and "firing up" preparatory to another
start. Looking at the mixed crowd of persons
standing on tho bank awaiting her departure,
one would think we were arriving at a populous place—a feeling enhanced, on mounting
tho bank, by the sight of so many houses
and stores extending up and down the beautiful, wide, level and grassy esplanade, which,
with great taste, has been left between the
buildings and the river. No sooner, however,
had the steamer left, than, as if by enchantment, every living soul, save a listless savage
or two, had vanished, and you would think
you were standing amidst a city of the dead
or at least of the deserted, so still and voiceless was the place. It seemed as though we
might have appropriately engraved over the
portals of the nearest structure, hewever
paradoxical it may sound, the well known
lines of Italy's favorite seer,—
" All yo wbo enter here abandon Hope."
Now, however, whilst undisturbed by human
sights and sounds, was the time to commune
with Nature and drink in the physical beauties
with which this town and neighborhood so
conspicuously abound. The river scenery
is most exquisite. Looking at the stream as
it silently courses along in its majestic strength
and extreme rapidity, it seems singularly lull
and expansive, and could not be better expressed than in that well known line,—
" Strong to o'erllowing—full."
The Hope mountains, which, scon from Yale,
appear so near and so cool, are equally attractive and refreshing in appearance ou a
warm day, when you are close upon them.
Turning your back on the river and looking
in an easterly direction, you perceive a
natural divide in the mountain ranges, as
though biforcated, and you are told that the
one to the right is the celebrated Similkameen
valley, leading to Kootenay and the Oken-
aguan country, and the other to the left is
where the lovely Coquealla winds its course
as it hastens to mingle its cool and limped
waters with those of the muddy Fraser, which,
like all such unnatural and unequal unions,
ends in its own defilement and contamination.
Between the Coquealla and the crescent
shaped line of houses and stores which lino
the banks of the Fraser, there lies a beautiful
flat of tableland, level as a bowling green,
and covered with a luxuriant vegetation, very
pleasant to behold and wander amongst, being
intersected by roads and trails which lead
hither and' thither, the traveler knows nor
cares not where, since every part is alike refreshing and inviting—though your greatest
anxiety is to discover the one which, by a
gentle descent, brings you, with willing feet,
to the hollow dell behind the town where,
laughing and sparkling beneath the noontide sun, flows the silvery and impetuous Coquealla, as attractive and beautiful in appearance as its name is sweet and euphonious and
its waters deliciously cool and grateful to the
thirsty palate. Quitting this shady retreat
with reluctance, and passing along the principal street from the Government House, on
whose flag-staff hard-by, the Union Jack of
old England is weekly unfurled and flung out
to the breeze, one's heart is saddened by the
sight of so many tenantless buildings fast
hastening to decay. Here a roof has fallen
in, there doors and windows have been carried
away—perhaps by some ambitious native who
has caught the spirit of the times and desires
to march onward with the tide of progress
and civilization, whether by foul means or
fair. One or two stores alone give evidence
of vitality and lingering greatness as a place
of commerce and business, and even these
exist rather than thrive. Then we come to
dwellings still more dilapidated and ruinous-
looking, and separated from them, a little
further on, we reach the Episcopal church,
which is a thoroughly ecclesiastical structure,
finished inside and out in the most perfect
taste, its very lonelinciB and emptiness adding
to the moral as well as social desolatoneis of
the scene. The Indian village, which closes
in the walk, presents some evidence of an
improved taite in comparison with the repulsive appearance of the old rancherics, but
there is a wide margin left yet for improvement and progress in every way before much
can be said in praise of the native inhabitants
aud their abodes.
There arc some very pretty gardens at
Hope; that of Mr. Landvoidgt's being equal, we |
think, in many respects to any we have seen I
in the two eolonies; and, were it not that the
land was chiefly sandy and liable to become
much parched during the summer, we might,
I think, justly term Hope "the garden of
British Columbia."
But my remarks are occupying an alarming
amount of your available space for correspondence, and I must hasten to a close.
The wind is very gusty at Hope, and generally sets in about ten in the morning and
dies away towards evening. 1 should think
in winter the town must be dreary enough,
but in summer no place presents greater attractions for the sportsman, the tourist or
the invalid.
I could not help recalling the past few
years and striving to picture this town jn its
palmy days, when its streets were filled with
bustling crowds of successful miners, drawn
from all parts under Heaven, and its shores
lined with tho white tents of those who had
(locked to share in the golden spoils of its
famed, vicinity. Then its merchants and lot-
owners dreamt of the future greatness of
their embryo city and revelled in its prospective glories. To-day its golden visions are
found—
•' Baseless as a dream when one nwakrtli,"
and the   "hope" of its lingering inhabitants
as "uhen one giveth up thc ghost."   So unstable   and   fluctuating   all   human   affairs,
and "-/S'tc transit qloria mnndi."

made discoveries in Cariboo of quartz

UNION AND THE CAPITAL.
Our attention lias been drawn to an article
in the Columbian, a leviathan paper published
in large type at New Westminster, and con
taining  about half the   quantity  of reading
matter that appears in tho " small paper published at Yale," upon thc subject of Union of
these colonies.   Inasmuch as the Goliah of
the capital "ia the oldest paper published in
British Columbia, and is read by every business man from  New   Westminster   to  the
Rocky Mountaius," it will be unnecessary for
us   to  do  more  than refer to Borae of the
points in the'article upon which we feel called
upon to differ with our amiable contemporary.
We may  premise,  what every reader of the
giant paper issued from thc New Westminster
press should be well aware of, that its editor
is the representative solely of himself and the
other lot-owners of the capital, aud that he
has been, up to a very recent period, a most
determined opponent of Union, but being dependent  upon  tho   Government   and   their
syohophantic hack,  he  was  obliged,   Janus
like, to chango faces and como round lately,
"by order" of his master, and espouse the
Union side,    lie sees now that Union, with
the capital  at New Westminster, would not
be so bad an arrangement after all, and Governor Seymour and General Moody are lauded
to the skies for their exertions in London on
become anything but a poor wayside stopping
place to thc interior. General Moody is a
lot-owner himself in the capital, and is therefore, in no 6ense of the word, an unbiased or
unprejudiced witness upon whose testimony
the Secretary of State can rely. Governor
Seymour and General Moody have not, we
repeat, the confidence of any portion of the
people of this colony outside their own
" estoemed friend" and his unfortunate fellow
lot-owners in the capital, and any pretensions
which they may put forward in a representative character aro wholly gratuitous and self
constituted. We believe the only right way
to settle where the capital should be placed is
EXCURSION TO HOPE.
On Tuesday hut, agreeably wilh tho announcement made in these columns previously,
Captain Irving placed his Cno steamer Onward,
and the services of himself and crew, nt the
disposal of the good people of Yale for a day's

weather being highly auspicious, nearly every
inhabitant of our busy little town determined
upon embracing thc opportunity of enjoying

From mi:   Blackfoot Region.—The   reports from the Blackfoot mines are not favor-
The Dalles Mountaineer of June 11th
able,
say?:
"From a letter written from Blackfoot City,
May 21st, we take the following: 'This place
is not near as good as has been represented.
It is true there aro some good claims here,
hut there are a few only. I have been in
McClelland's gulch; there are but few rich
claims in it. I have been in five or six different mining camps: there is very little work
dene in any of them. Tho owners of claims
are all anxious to sell, which doea not speak
well for the diggings. There are ten men
looking for work where one can get it. This
is a singular climate; we havo three or four
kinds of weather in a day—rain, hail, snow
and sunshine. We had a hard trip here.
Camping out is not so pleasant as some may
imagine. The following are about the prices
current here: Flour, from $1S to $2-1 per
100 lbs.; beef, 40 cents per lb.; mutton, 41
centH; sugar, CO cents; tea, $4; tobacco,
#4 50.'"
The Walla Walla Statesman publishes the
following from private letters received:
"Left Elk Creek, May 26th. The town is
crowded with people and business is lively.
The miners are getting their claims open, and
taking out good pay. All the claims opened
on Elk, Bear and Deep gulches are paying
well- I stw forty-seven dollars washed from
one pan of dirt, taken from Warren, Bonner
k Co.'s claim, on Deep gulch.
" Goods of all kinds are very low in all the
camps. Flour sold at $15 per 100 at Ilelen.i
on tho 20th, and other articles were selling
proportionately. Several wagons had arrived from Los Angeles, freighted with goods
for the Blackfoot mines."
Tab Italian Army.— Thc Minister of War
at. Florence has addressed a report to thc
King of Italy on the state of tho army, from
which it appears that there are at present
under arms 11,000 officers and 190,325 privates,
or 204,325 in all. The reserves comprises
1764 officers and 148,0(10 privates, forming in
all 16<>,-414 men. Grand total, 364,744 men.
Of these it is stated in the report that 240,000
men might be mobilised on the shortest
notice. Moreover, 30,000 men having been
called out for drill, these would be fit for
service about the end of May. The report
nJso speaks'highly of the present state of
efficiency of the Italian army.
Colonial.—Wo have reason to believe,
says an English paper, that the Hon. Arthur
Gordon, nt present Lieut.-Governor of New
Brunswick, is to succeed Mr. Manners-Sutton
;«■ Governor of Trinidad. It is not yet decided
whether any successor .of Mr. Gordon will be
nominated, the approaching federation of the
North American provinces making such an
appointment unnecessary.
