GOVERNOR SEYMOUR'S DISPATCH TO
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE
COLONIES.    •
We regret that owing to its length we are
unable to give more than a few extracts from
Governor Seymour's dispatch in regard to
Union in this issue.
DISPATCH.
Rue de la Paix, Paris, \
February 17, 1866, I
Received February 24.   )
Sir,—As you did me the honor of consulting
me respecting the resolutions of the Legislative Assembly of Vancouver Island, praying
that the colony might be united to British
Columbia, I would now venture to express in
writing, I UHieve in accordance with your
wish my views upon the subject.
Whether it was wise, ever to make two
colonies of the territories lying west of the
Rocky Mountains, it is useless now to enquire;
but colonists having been invited to settle on
the continent oil the faith that they were to
form an independent community, possessing
their own government and capital, the old
system was found to be manifestly unjust, and
your predecessor, listening to the voice of the
protesting colonists, effected the separation
so joyously received in British Columbia.
1 say confidently that British Columbia has
not altered its views. It has had the one
great wish gratified, and dreads all change.
I have heard this denied by Victoria politicians; and I have in vain asked them for
any evidence to support their denial. If a
desire for Union has arisen in the colony, how
does it show itself? The gentlemen who successfully appealed to the people for a nomination to the Legislative Council, pledged them-
belvus to opposition to Union. The Council,
on this subject entirely unfettered by me,'
vote unanimously against it. The issue was
fairly tried whenever there was a chance of
success. Petitions were printed in Victoria,
recommending union and the abolition of unpopular taxation, and circulated in the mining
districts, but they remained unsigned.' Indignation meetings were called in Cariboo, but
no one would attend. A newspaper was
started in that district especially to advocate
Union and oppose the local government. The
miner*, merely protested against the scurrility
of their professed organ, and when extraneous
assistance was withdrawn, it died from want
of support. I am for many reasons anxious
that the desire for Union should exist in British Columbia.   It does not.
The efforts of the merchants of Victoria to
create such a desire in the mining districts
were, however, vigorous and well-timed ; not
very high principled, but showing considerable political dexterity. It was thought that
Union, as a separate question, could stand no
chance of obtaining a bearing in Cariboo, but
it might meet with some attention on tbe
hustings, coupled with an abrogation ef tbe
export duty on gold, and a general reduction
of taxation. Systematic agitation might,
possibly, stir up the feeling against the gold
tax to a sufficient strength to drag into light
its self-imposed associate, Union.
It would have been well if Victoria hid
earlier passed the resolutions in favor of unconditional Union. It was not until the efforts
to obstruct the Government of British Columbia by shaking the confidence of the people
in its justice, had proved vain that this wise
course  was adopted.    Though, I shall pres
outside the colony was created against the
then recent legislation. This snecess, once
obtained, caused alarm in Victoria. Then
came the outcry that the miners were leaving
the country; merchants from the Island waited
on the Governor on the subject, and when the
injury was done the Cariboo press was
silenced.
Even in England, persons connected with
Victoria have had a meeting where, in their
eagerness for Union, they have reported the
two colonies to be languishing or retrograding
in their present separation.
I am prepared to allow that Victoria is not
flourishing. I maintain that British Columbia
is so!! It may seem strange that their progress
is not parallel, and I believe that the cause
has escaped the knowledge of some of the
merchants of Victoria. The explanation is,
however, simple.
Cariboo was the great customer for Victoria ; but Cariboo, with its prodigious wealth
has been found not to be " poor man's diggings," not competent, therefore, to support
a very large population. The mines are of
limited extent, the gold lies deep, and is expensive to extract. The number of spring
immigrants began early to fall off, and in 1865
was smaller than usual. There was no dearth
of laborers. Cariboo warned off fresh comers,
as every place was full. So it seemed, for
with a diminished population, tbe yield of
gold was in the proportion of 9 to 5 as compared with preceding years. Wages were
steady at 40s. a day, and the necessaries of
life far lower in price than they had ever been
before. Victoria continued to do the principal business of these mines; but the population to feed was comparatively small, and
Victoria suffered.
So did British Columbia to a certain extent.
Road-side houses on the Cariboo line became
bankrupt as traffic decreased, by diminished
immigration and accelerated traveling.   The
enay Pass, an easy access from the Pacific to
the Hudson's Bay lands beyond the Rocky
Mountains (?) Its principal value, however, to
the colonists is that it already enables the
merchants of New Westminster to undersell
those of Lewifton and Walla Walla at the newj
diggings. A sleigh road has been opened from
the seat of Government to Yale, running for
upwards of a hundred miles through the
dense forests of the Lower Fraser. A bridge
has, for the first time, been thrown over
Thompson's River, on the main road to the
northern mines. Upwards of twenty thousand
pounds have been expended on the completion of the high road into Cariboo, allowing
machinery at last to be introduced into Williams Creek. A large sum in connecting, by
a long street, the three mining towns in that
locality. A good road now connects New
Westminster with the sea at Burrard Inlet,
and secures the inhabitants from inconveniences should an unusually severe winter close
the Fraser. A light-ship, public libraries, new
school building, testify to the energy of the
Government.
I have endeavored at considerable length
to prove, first, that union with Vancouver Island, or tlie annexation of that coloay is not
desired in British Columbia; secondly, that
the larger colony is not in a depressed condition. Possibly external agitation in connection with the gold export duty may have to a
certain extent impeded her progress. If, in
the violent competition on the Pacific to make
the mines in the colony or the States superior
to each other in attraction, it be found that
the British export duty on gold acts unfavorably to us, I cau only say that the tax will be
at once repeale-1. Our great public works
are done, and if the export duty, though
just, is impolitic, we will not suffer our miners
to be over weighted by it in the great
struggle.
In the face of thc reluctance of the colony

general condition of the  colony was,  how- over which  I preside,  to be drawn into any
ever, prosperous!!! The customs' receipts at
New Westminster were, by the last account
which has reached me, £15,000 in excess of
the corresponding period of 1864. I lea'n
that the British Columbian capital " is making
great progress; houses and wharves, clearing
and fencing going on everywhere.'' And the
mo.st hopeful sign of all is beginning to show
itself: a disposition on the part of the miners
to purchase land in New Westminster or its
neighborhood, and commence the systematic
colonization of the Lower Fraser. These
benefits in no way assist Victoria, nor can it
appreciate the improvement in the general
condition of Cariboo, which now induces
many miners to winter there instead of
squandering their money in Vancouver Island
or San Francisco. •
To the merchant of Victoria the depression
he felt in 1865 appeared to extend over British Columbia; but he could only see the
valley Oi tha Fraser, while a vaster view lay
open before the eyes of the Government of
New Westminster. The usual wave of immigration was seen to come to us in equsl, if
not larger volume than in former years.
Many miners were, doubtless, prevented by
the Victoria outcry from coming direct to the
English colonies, and the more united Americans secured the preference for their own
gold fields of Boise or Cceur d'Helene. But
disappointed hopes soon drove thousands in
search of richer deposits. From the sea to
the Rocky Mountains, on both aides of the
boundary  line,  the   country   swarmed with j

grossed greatly since it attained a separate
existence, yet it did not escape entirely un
injured from the self-damaging attacks of tbe
Victoria politicians. The prosperity of both
colonics depends principally on the power of
tne gold mines of the mainland to attract a
considerable share of the large floating population which, centered in winter in California,
seeks in the public prints and in every rumor
a guide to direct its steps to the most profitable field for summer labor. The Victoria
papers and their Cariboo representative,
during its short existence, represented British
Columbia to be overtaxed and unjustly governed. Many persons, undoubtedly, in San
Francisco took the English reports on English
mines aud management as correct, and turned
their steps towards other gold fields which
American speculators took care not to depreciate. The efforts of the Victoria speculators were thus partially successful. The
great objects of intimidating the Government
and
exciting disaffection
failed, but a feeling
forwards as reports circulated that the gold
which all knew to exist had at last been
found.
While British Columbia is reputed to be
lsnguishing, it may be interesting for me to
mention, though I write without official documents, some of the principal publie works
which have been accomplished by us in 18C5.
I premise with the statement that every sur
veyor and every engineer in the colony was
in Government employ last year. Every discharged sapper, possessing anything like
adequate knowledge, was likewise induced to
enter our service. A good trail for pack
animals has been opened from the Fraser to
Kootenay (?) The Cascade Range, the Gold
Range, thc Selkirk Range, have been successively surmounted; with what labor may be
imagined, when I state that at the end of May
thi cutting over the Cascade Mountains had,
on each side, seven feet of snow. This trail
not only runs through English territory to a
gold mine, but it afords, by the British Root

CHARACTER.
THE
There is a glaro about worldly success
which is very apt to dazzle men's eyes. When
we ask a man rising in the world, thriving in
business, successful in his speculations, if he
be a man out of our own line, who does not
come in competition with us, so as to make
us jealous of him, we are apt, to form a foolishly high opinion of his merits. We aro apt
to say within ourselves, " What a wonderful
man this must be, to rise so rapidly!" forgetting that dust and straw and feathers—things
with neither weight nor Value in them—rise
thc soonest and the easiest. In like manner,
it is not the truly good and great man, generally speaking, who rises the most rapidly
into wealth and notice. A man may be sharp,
active, quick, dexterous, cunning; he may
be ever on the watch for opportunities to
push his fortunes; a man of this kind csn
hardly fail of getting ou in tho world; yet,
with all this, he may not have u grain of reai
tense about him. He may be all we have
described, and yet have no greatness of mind,
no greatness of soul. He may be utterly devoid of all true wisdom; he may be without
piety and without charity—without love, that
is, either for God or man.
An Extinct Parliamentary Custom.—
Alderman Copeland (says a London letter)
was the last of the members Who came down
to the house with a flower in his button-hole.
Good old Sir Robert Inglis was never seen
without one. Some fair hand used also to
provide worthy and placid Mr. Brotherton with
a rose or a camelia just when he was leaving
his quiet abode in Manchester Buildings to
come down to the House. Sir Robert Feel
(lhe present baronet), after his marriage, waf=
rarely seen without a flower. Then there
came an intermittent period, and he broke
out into exotics by fits and starts. Now that
Alderman Copeland has retired into private
life, there is not single M. P. whose prosaic
Httire is relieved by the "language of flowers"
and the " noetrv of earth."
