YALE, MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 1866.
No. 21
THK GOVERNOR OF NEW WESTMINSTER
ON THE FLOURISHING STATE OF THE
COLONY.
No part, perhaps, of the notorious dispatch
from " Rue de la Paix" to Mr. Cardwell places
its author in a more damaging light before
the public than where it asserts that this
colony is in a flourishing state. In the ninth
paragraph Mr. Seymour says, " I am prepared
" to allow that Victoria is not flourishing. I
"MAINTAIN THAT BRITISH COLUMBIA
" IS SO." Again, in the thirteenth paragraph,
his Excellency declares that although a few
road-side houses along the wagon road became bankrupt as travel decreased, by diminished immigration and accelerated traveling,
THE GENERAL CONDITION OF THE
COLONY, UOWEVEK, WAS PROSPEROUS.
But the proofs which the writer gires of the
evidences of pros, erity in the country have
excited profound disgust in the minds of the
people at the total absence of truth and candor
displayed by his Excellency. Here are the
proofs given Mr. Cardwell of the prosperous
state of the colony.   His Excellency says:
"The customs' receipts at New Westminster
" were, hy the last account which has reached
"me, £15,000 in excess of the corresponding
"period of 1864. I learn that the British
" Columbian capital' is making great progress;
"houses and wharves, clearing and fencing
" going on everywhere.' And the most hope-
"lul si nn 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.
" Wiiile  British Columbia is reputed to be
accounts for 1865 for eight months from the
public prevents our sifting Mr. Seymour's
statements any closer, but we sre of opinion
that wheu the Auditor-General IS ALLOWED
to enlighten the community by publishing, in
nis usual clear manner, the audited accounts,
it will be difficult to reconcile Mr. Seymour's
assertions with statistical facts. The "great
progress" in New Westminster that is going
on; "the housos aud wharves, clearing and
" fencing," are not even the " most hopeful
" sign" of the couutry's prosperity, according
to the author of the dispatch. Oh! no
"The miners"—the bone and sinew of the
country—" are beginning to buy land in New
" Westminster or its neighborhood snd com-
" mence the. systematic colonization of the
" Lower Fraser." We ask our fellow colonists is it possible for any statements to be
more opposed to the truth than the foregoing?
If Mr. Seymour were the bitter enemy of New
Westminster, instead of its warmest partisan,
he could not have written words of keener or
more scathing irony than those referring to its
progress I Had he told Mr. Cardwell that the
place was fast going to ruin aud decay, tbe
>.rass growing in the streets, many of its
houses untenanted, neither houses going up
nor wharves being erected, several of its
traders become bankrupt and sold out, and
without a wholesale importing merchant
in the city, his Excellency would have adhered
to the truth and not misrepresented the actual
state of things. Who are the miners, so enamored of the capital as to become proprietors of some of its lots, and where are the
evidences of the systematic settlement of the
Fraser River lands" Mr. Seymour's ftrlile
imagination alone could supply the answer.
Why did Mr. Seymour not give the price ot
town lots iu his favored city in the beginning
of this year, and compare it with the price
ruling wheu he made his grand entry into
that scene of desolatien and fallen greatness
which he so graphically depicts of the appear
" languishing, it may be interesting for me to
"mention, though'I write without official' nc,""of the"c^piu[7t"th7trme"his Eicelleiicy
"documents, some of the principal publicLMumed the reina of Government? Thv
"works which have been accomplished by US 8fBplt reason is, that the result would have
"in 1865. A good trail for pack animals has|beeu t0 ihoir a decline of aftT pt.r cent in
"been opened from the Fraser to the Koot-iTalue t yVe pitv the ,)eop|, of New Wcst-
" enay. The Cascade Range, the Gold R*nge,UJn|Ur to UfjVe such an advocate anywhere
"thc Selkirk Range, have been successivelyjM their Governor.    It must be tantalizing
to the utmost extreme to the poor lot-owner*
of the capital to read the word picture
which he gives of the condition if their town.
We do believe that the honest inhabitants of
New Westminster have never had their disgust more excited or a deeper crimson brought
to their cheeks then on reading Mr. Seymour's
dispatch—unless it was at some of the putrid
and filthy nutter with which they are semi-
weekly inflicted in the editorial columns of
thc British Columbian newspaper. But the
"from the seat of Government to Yale, run-lprogpcrity of New Westminster is not all the
" ning for upwards of a hundred miles through j Peering evidence of the country's prosperity!
" the dense forests of the Lower Fraser. Aj By no nieaI1Si |f wC take Mr. Seymour lor our
««bridge has, for the first time been tnrown aiUnority. There is that grand trail to
"over Thompson's River, on the main roailjKooUnaT frotl uope. -\yhat hasitnot done?
"to the northern mines. Upwards of twenty j.. it goeg jnt0 au important gold mine, opens
"thousand pounds have been expended on the | up tne highway through the Kootenay pell
"completion ol the high road into Cariboo,
" allowing machinery at last to be introduced
"into Williams Creek.
*" I have endeavored at considerable length
" to prove, first, that Union with Vancouver
"Island, or the annexation of that colony, is
"not desired iu British Columbia; secondly,
1 that the larger colony is not in a depressed
"surmounted. This trail not only runs
" through English territory to a gold mine,
" but it affords, by the British Kootenay Pais,
"an easy access from the Pacific to the Hud-
"son's Bay lands beyond the Rocky Moiln-
" tains. <ts principal vslue, however, to the
"colonists is that it already ENABLES THE
"MERCHANTS OF NEW WESTMINSTER
"TO UNDERSELL THOSE OF LEWISTON
"AND WALLA WALLA AT THE NEW
" DIGGINGS.   A sloigh road has been opened
" condition."
Now, it will be observed at the outset, that
although the Governor of New Westminster
must have been in possession of information
as to the actual revenue received up to the
end of last year, when he was writing his dis
patch from Pari", ho does not tell Mr. Card-
well whether the excess was for the first
quarter, half year, or on the whole year, tie
adroitly leaves that undefined ; but that ii
not so bad as the DOWNRIGHT DECEPTION which he practices upon the Secretary
of State, by CONCEALING the fact that a ne*
tariff came into operation in 1805, and that chants of New Westminster trading with
on many articles an enormous increase took,Kootenay ? W!;o are they? Thc Uomnor
place in the duty. His Eicellency does not of New Westminster must supply the answer
allude either to the inflation of business in from his accommodating lmaguittion. lhe
the spring of 1805, which ended so disss- "sleigh road from the scat of Govern me-a to
trously to the mercantile interests of the
country.    There is a studied concealment on
to the Hudson Bay territory beyond the Rocky
Mountains;" hut its chief good to tbe colonists
which Mr. Seymour points out is that it
" enables the merchants of New Westminster (! !) to undersell those of Lewiston and
Walla Walla at the new diggings 1!!" Can
any one believe that the human imagination
could soar into the ethcrial to such an extent
as this. Not a word is said of the $60,000
expended on an incomplete trail; not a whisper
about there being a useless, outrageous and
profligate waste of the public funds upon it
to no purpose whatever; that not one pound
of goods has ever yet crossed over it from
this side, and that the trade of our southern
gold fields is exclusively in the hands ol Lewis-
ton and Walla Walla'merchants. Nothing,
nothing, nothing on the part of GovcfHbT
Seymour hut misrepresentation and concealment of facts. How deplorable! But what
are we to think of the allusion to th* mer-
outlsy would never have been authorised had
the people been con-ulud on the sulject.
With respect to thc bridge across the Thompson the Governor fails to tell Mr. Cardwell
that it was constructed not by the Government but by private enterprise, and that the
work upon it was done iu 1804, or it would
not have been undertaken at • 11. It scarcely
admits of a doubt that the work would not
have been executed by private parties, had
it remained over until last year, so great was
the depression in the country. The only
public work of real utility undertaken by the
Government in 1805 was the completion of
the grand trunk read to Cariboo; but even
with regard to it Governor Seymour is guilty
of exaggeration in stating the amount expended. We have now examined the chief
of Mr, Seymour's " evidences ot the country's
progress and prosperity." It will be unnecessary for us to offer any general observations
on the monstrous perversion of facts, of which,
we are deeply pained to say, Governor Seymour has been guilty, in his communication
to the Secretary of State. We write in the
colony, where every one has as good sn opportunity as ourselves of judging of Mr. Bey*
mour's veracity, and what amount, of depm-
dence may be placed upon his extraordinary
assertions regaiding the prosperity of the
country. We would remark, however, that
we have not met a single individual in the
whole community—not even a New Westminster man—who does not regret with us that a
put-lie officer, occupying the exalied position
of Governor Seymour, should have lent himself, under any circumstances, or for any
purpose, to a deception upon the Secretary
of State like that of which the dispatch from
the "Rue de la Paix" proves his Excellency
guiltv beyond all manner of doubt or dispute.
Politicians may, and often do, go to lengths
which cannot be justified by principle, to accomplish their purposes, but Governor Seymour should have stood far above the contemptible pleadings of a politician, partisan,
or fsctiouiet, aud done his dut) to tin country
like a statesman and a patriot. Hv; Governor Seymour, after he went home, disenthralled himself from the prejudices, connac-
ted vieWB, and false prim ip es which he imbibed from the demagogues of New West-
miniter, and come out like a m*n to acknowledge to the Secretary of State the HUINUUS
RESULTS of his centralizing policy upon the
country gen» - !y, he would have redeemed,
or striven to redeem, the almost fatal eirors
of his past aumiristration. Why did hi? Excellency not adn.it that he had oppos-d
Union; that he had sanctioned a new tariff
bill opposed to British interests iu tiie Pacilic;
that the people were driven out of the colony
by obnoxious taxation ; that every white inhabitant in the colony was paying from £'2<>
to £30 per annum in taxes to the Government; that a quarter of a million dollars
were required to pay a staff of officials for a
population of six thousand white people, and
that in addition to an immense lo.ui having
been contracted in England during his incumbency,an overdrawn account, incm r-d without
authority, with lhe Bank of British Columbia
of $17(1,000, stood against the colony at thc
moment he (Mr. Seymour) was writing his
famous, or rather infamous, dispatch; iu fact,
that the Government was in a state of financial distress unprecedented in the history of
the colony. Had Governor Seymour gone
farther, and staled that with itry few exception! the merchants, traders, and hotel-keepers of the colony had broken down and become bankrupt through an accumulation of
difficulties, brought on by the insane
policy inaugurated by Governor Seymour at
the instance of (he New Westiniiis'er lot-
owueri, he would at least have entitled himself to our respect for truth and bono-', er en

the part of his Excellency of New Westminster, which should have prompted a man ol
Mr. Cariwcll's calibre to have had returns
based on facts laid before him in support of
the manifestly one-sided statements of his
correspondent. The course which the Government has pursued in keeping the audited
Yale" is another of the great works of last
year, which is "a further efidence of the
couutry's adYaiicement!" Wny did his Excellency not say how much this road cost;
that e' sleigh has never yet passed ofer it;
that the work done upon it was through a
clever telegraph man being too smart for the
Government, and that its execution was not
called for by the publio, end certainly the
did not possess any very brilliant qualities of
statesmanship as Governor of au Important
uolouy. But Governor Seymour has sacrificed everything by the course which—per-
hsps by this time no one will more regret
than himself—he has pursued. He can no
longer lay claim to the high position of Got-
ernor of this colony, iiis tuture usefulness
is destroyed, anl the people have lost all confidence in his judgment, integrity and publio
principle. He has deliberately reduced himself to the undignified position of beine a
" delegate" for a few lot-owners in the present
capital, and if he ever returns as an official to
this country—which Heaven forbid—he c.in
only be recognized as Governor of New Westminster alone.

COMPLIMENTARY PLEASURE EXCURSION AND GRAND PRESENTATION TO
CAPTAIN WILLIAM IRVING.
A complimentary pleasure excursion having
been tendered by the citizens of Yale to
Captain William Irving, owner of the steamers
Onward and Reliance, and that gentleman
baring accepted the invitation, preparations
wore made by a committee for having a trip
to Hope. Tuesday last was fixed for the excursion, and the Onward being engaged and
ready, a large assemblage of ladies and gentlemen of the city and neighborhood,  with
their families, assembled at an early hour on
board, and steam being up, the whistle
sounded and the vessel started. The steamer
soon glided down the swift flowing Fraser to
Hope, which has become the favorite spot now
for pic-nics, and the pleasure seekers soon
landed. Messrs. Sutton, Oppenheimer, and
Steinberger having kindly provided vehicles
for carrying the excursionists from the steamboat landing to the banks of the beautiful
Coquealla, very little time was lost in transferring tho whole company—numbering over
150—to the spot selected fop-the mid-day ro-
past. The ladies provided an ample store of
edibles and refreshing beverages—the latter,
especially, was in great requisition in consequence of the day being extremely hot—but
to all it is scarcely necessary to say that
ample justice was done. After lunch several
gentlemen entertained thecompsny with their
vocal efforts; Mr. T. J. Atkinson, especially,
created great laughter by his rendering of
several popular cemic songs. The rcnouned
wizard, the Fakir do Bordeaux, who was
present, varied the entertainment by introducing some of his most amusing aud clever
tricks, which gave great satisfaction. Amusements werc provided for the little folks, and
the day was spent in thc most agreeable
manner until the proceedings were interrupted
by the warning note from the steamer to pre-
admire the spirit of " Onward" progress which
has marked his conduct in the face of some
of the greatest difficulties and dangers which
Nature ever threw down to arrest the tide of
civilization and impede the march of commerce.
Let any ono conversant with the subject
consider the strain upon nerve, and brain,
and physical endurance which the navigation
of the Eraser, at all seasons of the year, has
imposed on our gallant captain duriug the
past six years, we cannot help wondering that
Captain Irving holds out and is the rubicund
and hearty old pioneer we see him to-day.
Pluck, endurance, and a spirit that will never
say die, but cries " we will conquer or perish,"
has made the Auglo-Saxon race what it is today—the leaders in the van of civilization,
progress, and Christianity throughout the
wide world—and in these grand elements of
true national greatness, our friend, Captain
Irving, is certainly not deficient.
I would disdain, for the sake of fulsome
adulation and popularity, saying ono word
more than I believe to be warranted by facts;
but, I think, in uttering these sentiments, I
am expressing the unanimous feeling and consent of all this numerous body of respectable
citizens of Yale and other places who are
assembled here to do honor to the occasion.
It is more than a mere complimentary excursion which has brought our friends and neighbors from their homes to-day. They believe
that unselfishness and public spirit, with fairness and just and accommodating dealing,
have found a permanent lodging place in our
gallant commander's heart and breast, and,
thereforo, they arc renewing and magnifying
KOOTENAY.
Messrs. G. and C. Oppenheimer arrived here
yesterday, only thirtcon days from Kootenay.
There was very littlo change in affairs on
Wild Horso Creek since our previous report.
About 500 men were in the miues, the most
of whom were making wages. Provisions
were abundant and rates moderate ; (lour, 25
to 28 cents; bacen, CO cents, tea, $1 15.
Mr. O'Reilly was on his way to Big Bend,
having arrivod at Fort Shepperd a few hours
too late for the Forty-Sine on Saturday, the
18th inst. The trail from Kootenay is now
passable, the water being very low in the
creeks. Mr. Moberly, with a number of men,
was engaged in corduroying part of the road
on Fort Shepperd mountain. The Messrs.
Oppenheimer have been importing their goods
from the American side of the line into Kootenay for the past year, there being no practicable trail from tho Frssor. The people of
Kootenay complain that no notice is ever
given ou this side before the mails are dispatched.

Victoria, August'18th, 1866..
Sir.,—Doubtless you havo seen the Union

in all probability, its intended action. Whether
that b* so or not, its effect has been to make
everybody here determined not to accept it;
such a result may have been expected, as you
say Governor Seymour and his Council arc
secretly opposed to any union of tho colonies.
Such being the case, ho only prates of Union
and Imperial interests to hide his true sentiments, and so deceive Her Majesty's Government. 1 presume he lias succeeded, although
there is no intelligence of the bill having
passed the British Parliament. You mi'st not,
however, 6uppose, that no one in England
opposed Governor Seymour; some did, but
werc not listened to, because they had an
interest in promoting the welfare of Vancouver Island! and the colonics generally, (as
though Vancouver Islam! were notfpart, and
a very important part of the British possessions.)    It is certainly a very singular thing
There  is  nothing   important   from   these that   tne   Government should  listen more to

BRITISH COLUMBIA TRIBUNE.
YALE, MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 1866.
Thk New Zkalahdirs.—Each passing year
reduces the chances of effectual opposition
on the part of the natives. All the efforts
made to civilize and preserve them appear
likely to be in vain. Dr. Featherton, in his
speech at Wellington, confirms the idea that
their numbers are'rapidly diminishing; and
he says it is "impossible to avoid their speedy
extinction." Twenty years ago their numbers
were estimated at 100,000; "now," says the
doctor, " no one believes they could muster
40,000 souls, and in twenty years they will be
reduced to a mere handful." It is consolatory
to think that such a rapid decline in the native
population is not attributable to European
aggression. The numbers who have perished
in battle, and through the collateral effects of
war, are trifling compared with the enormous
reduction that has taken place. The diminution must be ascribed to other causes. Strze-
lecki, in writing upon Australian colonization,
expresses the opinion that the natives of this
New World " have, wherever the European
advances, the sentence of extinction stamped
indelibly upon their foreheads." That opinion
was written twenty years ago, and each year
had tended to prove its truth. It is not that
their longevity is abridged, but that from
some undefined cause, whenever placed side
by side with Europeans, " the hearts of the
natives, like the wigwams of the American
Indians, retreat or disappear before the torrent of immigration."—[Otsgo Times.
