Telegraphic Summary.
Chicago, June 10.—Reports having been
detained by the lines being down, the following is a summary of nows of the Cth, 7th and
8th. The Fenian excitement raged furiously
until President Johnson's proclamation was
issued directing Gen. Meade to employ the
regular forces and militia to arrest Fenian
conspirators and prevent their unlawful proceedings.
The frontier was made into three military
districts, under'Gen. Barry, head-quarters at
Buffalo; Col. Hodges, head-quarters at Og-
densburgh; and Major Augustus Gibson,
head-quarters at St. Albans.
A Fenian council of War decided upon advancing immediately in two columns from
Malone, N. Y., and from Franklin, Vermont.
A large force of Fenians, with arms, made
a demonstration in northern New York and
Vermont.
On the Gth Sweeney was arrested in Sc.
Albans. The same night, notwithstanding
this and other obstructions, the Franklin
column moved early under command of Gen.
Speer, formerly Colonel of 11th Pennsylvania
cavalry, and numbering one thousand men
tolerably well armed, established themselves
ou Pigeon Hill, four miles from St. Albans,
that niglit, to await reinforcements and collect supplies. The latter movement was prevented by the arrest of Gen. Murphy, on the
5th. The men, after rioting somewhat
throughout the day, at Malone, were finally
quelled into subjection.
Reports of last evening say the Speer's invasion is a failure; no reinforcements; men
straggling back and transportation beiug
furnished from St. Albans.
Wm. R. Roberts, Fenian President, issued
a proclamation on the Gth, counselling the
brotherhood to renewed efforts. He was arrested by U. S Marshall Manning, on the 7th,
and arraigned before Commissioner Betts,
when he assumed a defiant attitude, refusing
to accept bail if coupled with parole. Roberts
was then remanded to custody, and, the hotels
refusing to entertain him while under arrest,
fearing attempts to rescue him, was lodged in
Eldridge street Jail. Numerous other leading
Fenians were arrested on the 7tli at Buffalo,
Cleveland, Chicago and St. Louis, and the
iurore of war was turned into indignation and
despondency.
Great indignation meetings were held, denouncing President Johnson for playing false
with the Fenians.
Col. O'Neil and other leaders of the Fenian
expedition, were arraigned before the U. S.
Commissioner of Buffalo on the 7th, and gave
bonds to appear for trial at Canandaigua on
the 14th.
affords subsistence for a vast army. Horses
sufficient to mount as many cavalry as the
Brotherhood can muster, quartermasters'
teams in quantity, and a vast amount.of lake
shipping will at once be the property of the
Fenian organization. The country will at
once be reduced to a grand military department with Hamilton for the capital, and a loan
advertised for. While this is being negotiated,
General Sweeney will push rapidly forward on
the line of the Grand Trunk, in time to
snperintend tho fall of Montreal, where ocean
shipping will be found in great quantity.
With the reduction of Montreal a demand
will be made upon the United States for a
formal recognition of Canada, whose name is
to be changed at once to New Ireland. While
this is being urged, the green flag will scour
all the bays and gulfs in Canada; a Fenian
fleet from San Francisco will carry Vancouver
and the Fraser country, to give security to
the Pacific squadron, rendezvousing at San
Juan, and the rights of belligerents will be
enforced from the British Government by
prompt retaliation for the cruelties of British
courts-martial.
Precautionary.—All vessels approaching
this or Esquimalt harbor are now boarded and
searched for arms and suspicious characters
by boats' crews from the Alert and other war
vessels. The Alert is lying at anchor off this
Ii arbor and the gunboat Forward off Cadboro
Bay. The Scout will probably be sent to
Nanaimo, the Sparrowhawk to Frasermouth,
while tho Sutlej will cruise in the Straits.
With the adoption of these precautions it is
not probable that an armed force will succeed
in landing on these shores. The greatest
fear is of a raiding party dashing suddenly
through the town and in half an hour effecting all the injury they wished. To prevent a
raid wo would suggest that an armed volunteer force bo detailed to patrol the streets
nightly. In the event of hostilities, Gov.
Kennedy will command the land forces in
person, while Admiral Denman will take care
of all piratical vessels that may heave in sight
of tins coast. Should a call to arms be made,
at least 2000 volunteers could be raised and
armed Ul a few-hours-for home protection.
The utmost vigilance will be used by the naval
and civil authorities in preparing for the
worst, and if our colonists, (of whatever
nationality) aro but true to themselves and
the flag under which all they hold dear on
earth is protected, little difficulty will be experienced in beating back any force that may
be sent against us.—[Victoria Chronicle.
A  CARD
TO   THE   PUBLIC.
THE   FENIAN  PLAN   OF A CANADIAN
CAMPAIGN.
(From the New York World.)
The Fenian Circles are at this time intensely
excited with regard to the opening campaign
of the Brotherhood against Canada and the
British Provinces.
All eyes turn to General Sweeney, who is
ready to develop his theories of action. He
is believed to have the most gractical ideas of
war; and having already large stores of arms,
a treasury and transports, he is concentrating
upon himself the enthusiasm of those Irishmen who are weary of talk and eager for
work.
We visited some of tho leading Fenian
Circles yesterday, and obtained thc following
suggestions, which it ii believed embody the
entire Sweeney programme for the invasion
of our British neighbor's territory:
The Flan of Invasion in Detail,
At Chicago, the Fenians already possess
five sailing vessels, a tug, and two steam
transports; I Buffalo, they aro negotiating
for vessels; at Bay City, Michigan, and at
Cleveland, they have other craft in process of
refitting; tbcie will simultaneously raise the
green flag, and stand ready to succor the land
sorce.->. Goderich, Sarnia, and Windsor will
bt simultaneously occupied; all thc available
rolling stock seized, nnd the main line of the
Grand Trunk cut at Grand River, to prevent
the passage of cars and locomotives to Hamilton. The geographical configuration of the
western half of Upper Canada will permit of
a few thousand men holding the entire section
of country between Coburg and the Georgian
Bay. These are connected by a chain of
lakes  and water courses,  and  the country

Yalk, B. C, 7th June, 1866.
We, thc undersigned passengers by Davis'
Stage Line from Savana's Ferry to Yale, beg
to inform thc public, through the medium of
the press, that in our late trip down from the
mines to this place, we received the best
of treatment from the proprietor of Davis'
well conducted line of stages. Instead of
requiring ua to walk any part of the journey,
Mr. Davis made a connection where the road
was impassable by bringing a well appointed
stage out from Yale and had it in waiting, to
convey us from that point to the end of our
journey. Our trip was, therefore, from beginning to end, made comfoitable, pleasant
and speedy. We think the people should
support a line of stages that carries passengers for §15, in opposition to a monopoly line
that, when it had the power in the beginning
i of the season, before Davis' line went on,
| extorted $401 from the helpless traveler for
the same trip. We notice that statements
I are put forward in the press by the Rival
Line in the names of certain parties against
Davis' line. We feel certain that such effusions proceed from envy, hatred and malice,
borne to Davis on account of his success in
obtaining such extensive patronage from the
traveling public, and we warn the public to
treat such "opposition squibs" with contempt,
as they are wholly unworthy of consideration.
We can assure the public that Davis' line of
stages is well appointed, and passengers who
travel by it arc not harassed out of their lives
by walking and pushing the stage up hills like
on other lines, the horses being fine spirited
animals, fit for their work, and able to proceed on their journey without such assistance.
Many of us traveled up to Savana's Ferry
in the early part of the season, as well as on
the down trip to-day, and we can testify to
the line being well conducted both ways.
As it is for tho interest of the country to
break down the monopoly of thc staging in
this colony, that has kept up fares to an extortionate height, and to keep up a healthy
competition iu this as well as in other branches
of business, we would urge all persons going
up or coming down from the mines to give
Davis' line support on account of its cheapness, rapidity of conveyance aud comfort.
There are no toutcrs or paid runners for
Davis' line, so travelers should be on the look
out and not be roped in by any unscrupulous
persons on the road.

TIIE FENIAN PROCEEDINGS.
Tho action of the Government of the
United States has given thc final blow to the
cause of the Fenian conspirators. The arrest
of Roberts and Sweeney, tin so-called generals and leaders, will break up the conspiracy
and drive the freebooters who entered into it
to take up some more legitimate calling than
that they have been bo lately engaged in. I
Canadians have shown their mettle in a manner that covers them with glory, and wc think
there will be no more itching on the part of
marauding expeditions to invade that line
province in future.

Mr. B. Bailey will Bell that celebrated Mare known
»» ■; While Pi.' son," od Thursday n ixt,
THE BIG BEND MINES.
Now that the stampede from these mines
has ceased, nnd reaction set in, people generally  have begun  to  look more hopefully
upon tho prospects of the country.    Going in
too early and without means to sustain them
for any length of time, the gieat body of immigrants were forced to abandon the mine.*
and returii to their homes without even an
attempt to  prospect.     With snow upon the
ground at first to the depth of ten or fifteen
feet, very little could be done to open and
test tho mines with any degree of accuracy,
but now that the snow is partially disappear-!
ing, the news of promising "strikes" begins,
to arrive, inspiring us all with the fullest con-!
fidenoe  that  the reports of last year were1
well founded,  and  that the mines will turn
out as well as they have been represented.
When wc consider that in the early days of
Cariboo tho mining Benson did not open there
before the beginning of July, and that it was
advanced  iu  the summer before  any   richl
Ktrikes rewarded  the  fortunate  pro.-pector.si
and created an excitement in the country; it
is certainly in favor of Big Bend that at this
early season and with Ugh water in the creeks,
the miners aro beginning to be rewarded for
their toil by taking out gold in paying quantities.    We are firmly persuaded, from con-!
versations  we   have   had   with   experienced!
minors who have been in the Big Bend country,
that it is rich in the precious metal, and it
only requires time  to prove the fact to the
world.     Whether thero is a large area of
. Auriferousgfftuad in the new locality can oniy';
be determined by actual experience; but that!
thc gold is nut confined to one creek is evi-!
dent, from the fact of its having been already 1
found on several creeks and gulches.   With j
respect to  the  Columbia river we have the'
most satisfactory- proof of there being good!
paying diggings on the bars, and when the
water falls  there  will  be  room for a largo 1
number of miners lo  work profitably upon;
them, Thc prospects, therefore, before the MONDAY, 25tll JUNE,
country ure on the whole cheering, and the I
iate news from French Creek, in our opin on,
is only tho forerunner of still bettor tidings
to come from the same quarter. With respect
to roads into thc mines, the Government is
showing itself more alive to the exigencies ot
the country than it manifested ill t.ie beginning. Much has already been done to open
up the trail from Seymour as well as from
Kirby's Landing to French Creek, nnd before
many days elapse pack animals will be engaged in transporting goods from the head of
navigation into the mines. Tin's will do
towards cheapening provisions and enabling
miners to remain and settle down to work
without having to be constantly on the (novel
packing in their "grub," which is a serious
interruption to the vigorous prosecution of
mining enterprise. Wc would urge upon the Mules, Waggons, etc., will be on view at Yale
Government   the  desirability of not  resting; from Thursday next to day of sale,

FiSKlANlSU.—Considerable excitement is reported to have existed at ViolOria in connection with an anticipated raid from San Francisco by some members of this filibustering
brotherhood. Fortunately II. M. ship Sutlej,
Admiral Deiiman, arrived at lyi opportune
moment to quiet the fears of the timid. The
volunteers are kept in readiness, and the
Government, it is thought, will call out the
militia of the colony. With the naval and
land forces available at present, the Fenians
would receive a warm reception at Victoria.
The report circulated here that the banks bad
placed their treasure on board the flagship is
contradicted.

News has been received nt Seymour that

tint quite an excitement has sprung up in

Several parties have come over to Seymour
from the mines and purchased provisions,
