GOVERNOR SEYMOUR'S MISREPRESENTATIONS TO THE SECRETARY OF
STATE.
Governor Seymour's dispatch to Mr. Ex-
Secretary Cardwell, whilst it is written under
the pretence  that its  author is in favor of
Union, is an elaborate, Jesuitical and unprincipled  mas3  of arguments  against it.     We
defy any one who reads the document carefully  and  dispasionately  from a stand-point
above thc petty jealousies of contending fac
tions, to arrive at any other conclusion than
that Mr. Seymour is bitterly and unrelentingly
opposed  to the  only scheme that can save
these colonies to the British Crown, and restore them again to the position of prosperity
which they occupied before they had the misfortune to be placed under two separate Governments.     Commencing  his  dispatch  with
the   assertion   that  tho  feeling in  favor of
Union is confined to Victoria, his Excellency
goes  on  to  impress upon the Secretary ol'
State that Nanaimo, the second town in Vancouver Island, only " faintly" wishes for amalgamation of thc two colonies, whilst British
Columbia has always been stoutly epposed to
any union with the sister colony.    "If a desire  for  Union  has  arisen in the colony of
British Columbia," asks Governor Seymour,
" how does it show itself?"    "The gentlemen
returned  by  the  people to the Legislature
pledged themselves to opposition to Union."
And " the Council, entirely unfettered by him,
voted unanimously against it."    Our readers
will be no less astonished than ourselves at
such a declaration as that made by his Excellency in regard to the views of thc reprcsen-
last year against Union, but the Governor
states they remained unsigned! How will his
Excellency reconcile this mis-statement with
the fact that a monster petition in its favor
was signed, and is now among the archives of
the Colonial Office in Downing street 1!. It
would have been twice as numerously signed,
too, if the gentleman who had charge
of it had not postponed getting signatures until after many of the miners ami
traders had left the upper country in the fall.
The "indignation meetings" referred toby
Governor Seymour as having been called in
Cariboo had only an existence in the fertile
imagination of the writer of the celebrated
official dispatch. When it was understood
that Governor Seymour was on his way to
Cariboo last year a meeting was celled—the
following are thc words of the notice: "To
"consider the propriety of petitioning the
" Governor to relieve the mining community
"of this country from the exceptional and op-
" pressive taxation to whicli they are subject."
News having arrived that Governor Seymour
had received leave of absence, and that he
had altered his mind about coming to Cariboo,
a countermand  of the meeting appeared in
chief offieer, the Colonial Secretary, to stifle
discussion on the question altogether by with-
drawii.g resolutions on the subject from thej
House, lest there might have been elicited an'CardS
expression of opinion from a certain quarter!
in its favor, not pleasant to gubernatorial ears.
On the many occasions Governor Seymour|
has beer, the recipient of addresses from the
various sections of thin country, he ha* never
in reply shown his professed "anxiety" for
Union by dropping a word in its favor. Not a
sentence has ever fallen from him indicating
that his views were favorable to it, hut on the
contrary, in insinuations and inurndoes he
led the people to believe* that he was secretly
antagonistic to any consolidation of " British
authority, British influence, or British power
in the Pacific." The public cannot fail to remember the memorable address presented to
his Excellency by the lot-otvnkrs of New
Westminster on the eve of his departure last
year, in which, in plain terms, the question of
Union was alluded to in order to extract a
definite opinion from the Governor on the
subject. Tho answer could not bo tuisiaken,
its purport, tone and feeling being dec d< 'ly
opposed  to  Union.     It is only a few days

With respect to the subject of Union being
tacked on to tlie abolition of •' unpopular
taxation" in this country, as alleged by Governor Seymour, there is not a psrticle of evidence to support the charge. From the out-
skirls of New Westminster to the highest
peak iu Cariboo, Union is highly popular with
the people, and it required no Jesuitical
tricks, like those played off on the Secretary
of State by Governor Seymour, to make the
subject  palatable   to the inhabitants of the
how did he reciprocate the sentiment? "The
Chief Officer of my Government," who well
knew the hostile views of his chief, quietly
evaded the subject altogether, and thus officially
snubbed the people for their audacity. Since
Mr. Seymour first assumed the Government
of this country—now nearly tlitre years—
neither by himself, his mouthpiece, " mv
chief officer," nor in any other way has he
ever manifested any "anxiety" or disposition
to create, foster, or encourage a desire for
Union, but on tho contrary be has done all in

one of the principles of the " platform" upon
which they solicited the suffreges of the electors was "Union of the colonies." It is no
secret that the member for Cariboo East presented the Union petition Isst year to the
Governor, and that it was signed by all his
principal supporters, as well a* by the member for Cariboo West. With rospect to the
views of the honorable member for Yale and
Lytton, we are informed by some of the most
influential electors of his district thnt at the
time of his election he did not pledge himself
against Union, and during the lime he has sat
in the House he has never once publicly declared that he was opposed to it. It is well
known that his constituents—unless, perhaps,
some Government hanger-on—are, to a man,
ardently in favor of Union. It is only a few
days since the people of Yale, Mr. Cornwall's constituents, without an exception,
signed an address to the Acting Governor, in
which thoy expressed themselves as desiring
an immediate Union of the colonies, and
looking forward to it as a panacea for the removal of the present state of depression
under which this colony now suffers. The
two remaining members, being N'e* Westminster lot-own Kite, of course are opposed
to the death to Union. The time will shortly
come, howover, when one at least of these
gentlemen, the misrepresentative of Lillooet
District, will be sent into merited retirement on
account of his selfish principles, as the question of Union will be made the battle cry at
the forthcoming elections in the colony, and
every msn who does not pledge himself in
favor of it will be discarded. Governor Seymour's Council of officials, of course, anticipated the wishes of their chief by voting
against Union, but it is no secret that even
they arc not unanimously opposed to it.
Petitions werc circulated through the colony
argument that its plain and avowed views on
the Union question were those held by the
people of the colony generslly. Wc are not
done with Governor Seymour's misrepresentations.
GOVERNOR   SEYMOUR   SECRETLY   OPPOSED TO UNION.
We have already stated in another article
that Governor Seymour is secretly Opposed to
Union of the colonies. The notorious dispatch
to Mr. Cardwell, which should cover its author
with shame, if not with remorse, abundantly
proves our assertion. We propose, however,
going further, and submitting evidence that
Governor Seymour is the fierce and deadly
i enemy of Union,  notwithstanding his decla-
the victim of as great an  imposture as that
practiced    upon    his   eminent   predecessor.1
Governor Seymour no more  represents the
views and feelings of the inhabitants of this
oountry on Union than the bogus delegate,'
McClure,  did\represent the   opinions of  the;
Ipeople vf Vancouver Island in 1862.    It is!
with great reluctance that we place the Gov-j
ernor of this colony on a par with such a man al
McClure, but his Excellono 's conduct and our
duty to the country leave us no alternative.   It
is better to protest in time against lhe  false
views of the "delegate" of New Westminster
i.ot-ownkus than pusillanimously to wait, as in
1862, until all the deadly mischief hsc been
done- to  the country.    The people have suffered  enougi    already by the falsehood and
chicanery of their profe«sed  friends.    It is
time  that all attempts at   misrepresentation
and imposture, no matter from whst q'larter
they proceed, should be exposed, condemned
and puniihed.

cultivating  a  desire for it in this country*
Our answer is paradoxical, but nevertheless
true, simply by burking the subject every
time it came up for his consideration, and discountenancing its discussion in the Legislative
Council. During his residence in this colony
Governor Seymour has opened two sessions
of the Legislature. Did he show his "anxiety"
tor Union by introducing and recommending,
like a honi.st man and good subject desirous
of "strengthening British authority, British
influence, and British power in the Pacific,"
the question of Union to the earnest deliberation of his own nominated Parliament? His
" anxiety" did not manifest itself in any such

TIIE UNDERSIGNED has well appointed
Stages on the road to Soda Creek, which are
guaranteed to viake faster time than any
other line. He has brought down fares to
f-Ui, and the public ought to see that it is
their own interest to support and maintain
a cheap and efficient Opposition.
The statement put forth by a stage proprietor that he reduced thc fare to enable
people to go to Canon Creek is only bunkum,
as it is well known that he did not reduce thc
rates until they were first reduced by the
undersigned.
