No. 23
Ecosomt.—Economy ii one of the ch'ef
duties of a State, as well as of au individual.
It is not onlv a great virtue in icself, but it ii
the parent of many others. It preserves men
and nation" from the commission of crime
and the endurance of misery. The man that
lives within his income can be just, humane,
charitable and independent. He who lives
beyond it becomes almost necessarily rapacious, mean, faithless, contemptible. The
economist is easy and comfortable, the prodigal harassed with debts, and unable to obtain
the necossary means of life. So it is with
nations. National character, as well as national happiness, has, from the beginning of
the world to the present day, been sacrificed
on the altar of profusion.
Youhq Amirica at tub Wiiair..—A well-
known clergyman was crossing Lake Erie,
some years ago, upon one of the lake steamers; and seeing a small lad at the wheel,
steering the ve.sel, he accosted him as follows:
" My son, you appear to be a small boy to
•teer so huge a boat." "Yes, air," was the
reply; "but you see I can do it, though."
" Do you think you understand your business,
my son?" "Yes, sir; I think I do." "Can
you box the conipafs?" " Yes, sir." "Let
me hear you box it." The boy did as requested, when the minister said—"Well,
really, vou can do it! Can you box it backwards?" "Yes, eir." "Let me bear you."
The boy again did as requested, when the
minister further remarked—"I declare, my
ton! you do seem to understand your business." Tne boy then took his turn at question-
asking, beginning—"Pray, sir, what might be
your business?" "I am a minister of the
gosp il." " Do vou understand your business?"
" I think I do, my son." " Can you say the
Lord's Prayer?" "Yes." "Say it." The
clergymnn did so, repeating the words in a
very fervent manner, as though trying to
make un impression on the lad. " Well,
really," said the boy, at its conclusion, " you
do know it, don't you? Now say it backwards." "Oh! I can't de such a thing as
that. Of course"—"You can't do it, eh!"
interrupted the boy. " Well, then you see 1
understand my business a great deal better
than you do yours " The clergyman acknowledged himself beat, and retired.
NEWSPAPEIUANA.
Harper's Magazine has an amusing article
under this heading, from which we cull the
following:
The labors and therefore difficulties of an
editor are multifarious. If be should happen
to be merely a " local" he must prove himself
a man uot only of incredible industry, but
should or at least prf tend to be thoroughly
posted on all subjects, trom the sublime to the
ridiculous. Several months since a member
of the corps thus capitally epitomized the
necessary qualifications ol a succeisful local
editor, all of which representation may be
regarded as correct, and therefore fitting for
the information of certain ambitious young
men:
" A good local must combine the loquacity
of a magician with the impudence of the
d—1. He must know how to time a race-
herse, gaff a cock, teach a Sunday-school,
preach a charity sermon, run a saw-mill, keep
a hotel, turn a double somersault, and brew
whisky. He must be up to a thing or two in
political economy, and au fait in the matter
of cooking beans. On the trail of mysterious
items he must be a veritable greyhound.
His '.tide must be like that of the rhinoceros.
He must be insensible to the crudest snubs,
and manifest no sense of anger when he is
kicked down stairs. He must throw modesty
to the dogs. But, above all, he must be an
adept at the art of puffing. The nearer he
approaches to the blacksmith's bellows the
better he will succeed. He must be ready at
all times to say something funny in regard to
Smith's grocery, or to surround miss Flounce's
millinery establishment with a halo of glowing
adjectives. He must be enthusiastic on the
■ubject ol' hams, verbose in extolling hardware, and highly imaginaiive iu the nutter of
dry-goods. He must look pleased when invited to walk sixtcn squares in the broiling
eun to write a six-line puff for a labor-saving
churn or a patent washing machine. He
must feel grateful when invited to dine at the
Degsnose Hotel, and write a glowing account
of tbe excellence of the haih and the dura
bility of the beef-iteak. If he feels any sense
of humiliation in sitting down to a festal
gathering, on thc occasion of the presentation
of a sword io Captain S.inkopanzy, or a set
of silver service to a horse inspector, he must
smother it, and revenge himself on the champagne and cigars. He must affect to believe
that he is invited in a purely social way, and
not for the sake of having him write a good
account of the ceremonies, with three co'umns
of speecnes in full, fer the next merning's
paper. If ho flags in his description of
iodge's premium bull, or 'let's down' in
winding up the oil indications of Shovedyke'c
farm, he must take it kindly for being reproved for his shortcomings. In the matter
of show, the local must always be brilliant.
He must talk learnedly of panoramas, with a
liberal admixture of knowing words, such as
'warmth,' 'tene,' 'foreshortening,' 'high
lights,' 'foreground,' 'eperspective,' etc.;
he must bo heavy on concerts, with a capacity
to appreciate Miss Squawk's execution of
difficult feats in the 'upper register;' he must
be ecstitic in praise of double-headed calves,
and eloquent in behalf of fat women and
living skeletons. All this, and more, it takes
to be a 'local.'"
Arduous, however, as are his duties, which
are scarcely exaggerated in the above, they
have their jests and fun like common people.
As the various insurance companies, savings'-
banks, State officials, and missionary societies
are making their annual reports, and publishing long columns of figures which are of the
most intense interest to the reading public
generally, the local reporter of the Memphis
Bulletin gives his also for the year:

-     COMMERCIAL DEPRESSION.
There are few countries that have not gone
through periods of depression at some stage
in their history. New countries, such as
California and Australia, have suifered more
perhaps by sudden panics than older lands,
but it must not be supposed that commercial
distress lias been conQned to any country
either old or new ' We have seen accounts
of late how n panic in the metropolis of commerce as well as of the world, brought down
some of the oldest and wealthiest business
houses in London. At the time when " the
city" wss in a state of excitement unparalleled in its intensity over the ruin that was
being wrought, few could trace the evil that
wss at the root of the great upheaving of the
foundations of commerce. When men's
minds had time lo calm down, and reason
ajain asserted its si* ay over passion and excitement, the feet became apparent that the disaster which hod swept over tho land might
have been averted by men simply having
faith in each other, and exhibiting confidence
when nothing had really occurred to destroy
it. It is now known that banks like Master-
man's, with an actual surplus of millions of
pounds, and firms like Peto k Betts, with a
surplus of a million sterling, wcre obliged to
temporarily suspend under the pressure of the
general want of confidonee prevailing.
1'rom tho present appearance of commercial
matters in these colonies it is feared that we
aro on the eve of a commercial crisis that
•rill  shake   the  country  te its very depths.
The merchants are nobly struggling to redeem
past losses, and it only requires the fostering
hand of the Bank to enable them to weather
tho storm and surmount all their difficulties.
The course taken by the Bank has gone a
great length towards weakening men's credit
outside, and destroying that confidence in
each other which should exist among merchant?. The only way to repair the error
which has been committed, is by relaxing the
stringency with which it meets the moderate
demands of its customers. If it is the intention of the Bank, chartered as a colenial
bank, to withdraw its eapital from theso
colonies altogether and transfer it to the
neighboring States, let it make the fact known
at once, and then the people will soon supply
its place ; but if that is" not its intention,
(et it pursue a course of policy that will
be liberal without being profligate. We
freely admit it is the duty of the Bank to bs
circumspect, and to exercise the greatest
caution in its dealings with the public, but
there is nuch a word as discretion, and the
present is the very time the Directors of the
Bank should exercise it judiciously. It is not
without mature deliberation that we have
touched upon this subject, we have done so
lightly for obvious reasons, and wc trust that
in doing our duty by the country we shall not
be required to return to it again.

TO GEORGE WALLACE, ESQ.
Diax Six,—We, the undersigned inhabitants of the District of Yale, Hope and Lytton, approving of the policy which you have
publicly advocated in this colony, request that
you will allow yourself to be put in nomination as a candidate at the forthcoming election of a member of the Legislative Council
for this District; and if you accept our invitation, we cordially offer you our undivided
support:

at less profits than it has made, we would haveirjjm. JIcQuarrie
no reason to complain of its calling in its!jA Oppcnheim '
capital with undue haste, but when the reverse 3.' Oppenheim'
is the case, and it has not only encoumgedlRobt. Church'
but led men on to more extensive trading!
than their capital would warrant, we have no
hesitation in stating that the stringency manifested at present to even its oldest and best
customers, is a mistake which the Directors
themselves will yet discover and regret. It is
unnecessary fer us to refer particularly to thc
course pursued by the Bank in past years.
The evils of its system of trading are well
known, and have, unfortunately for the merchants of both colonies, not fallen upon itself
but upon them, and now that it has almost
sucked tho last drop of blood out of their
veins, it is a bard, unfeeling policy to contract
in a moment, and without any notice, the
limited accommodation which business men
should not bo denied. So far the bank 1ms
reaped a golden harvest from these colonies;
its twelve per cent, dividends being as regular
as its half yearly statements, and taking this
fact into consideration, the Directors should
act with not only forbearance but with some
of that generous confidence which the country
has always reposed in tho Bank. Nothing has
happened so lar in either colony that should
create a general want of confidence—unless,
perhaps, it is the policy of the Bank itself.
So far our mines are yielding a fair return of
gold; the growing confidence of the people
in the country is abundantly testified by tbe
amount of land brought into cultivation this
year, and the establishment of flouring mills
in various districts, are all evidences of progress whioh should inspire confidence on the
part of capitalists. Iu addition, business has
got into fewer hands than formerly, and is
done on a sounder basis—cash payments
hSYing   r**nerallv  taken  the place of credit.

TO
THE   ELECTORS
Or TBI   DISTRICT or
YALE, HOPE and LYTTON.
OENTLEMEN,—I accept the invitation
which you have so unanimously extended to
me to become a candidate for your suffrages
at the forthcoming election of a member of
the Legislative Council for this district.
Although my views on the principal questions
now agitating the publie mind of this colony
are well known—and I am proud to receive
the assurance that they are approved by
you-—I deem it right to plaee them fairly
before you again, in order that the electors
may not be misled into voting for me if their
principles are not in full accordance with
those which I entertain and advocate.
The great and all absorbing question of the
day is Union of the colonies. I am in favor
of an immediate amalgamation of Vancouver
Island with this colony on principles of justice
to both. I consider they can only be united
with permanent satisfaction and benefit te
each colonv on the principle ef basing " representation on population"—the census to
be taken in the summer season, when the
merchants and miners are here.
I am in favor of representative institutions
in their broadest sense, by which means the
people who pay the taxes will have power,
through their representatives, to say how they
shall be expended.     I can only hope for any
substantial Retrenchment in the public service
when thc peopl*e of this colony have the same
rights of freemen extended to them, that the
mother country has concoded to the inhabitants of all her other colonies. If returnod,
I will battle against the enormous Civil List
of this colony, and will use all my efforts to
have the quarter of a million dollars now
paid annually to officials reduced to the lowest
ebb, consistent with maintaining the public
service in a state of efficiency.
The question of a site for the future capital
of the colonies, in the event of Union, I think
should be left to a vote of the peoplo themselves. The subject cannot, however, come
up for consideration until after Union is
effected ; when it is consummated the people will again be called upon to elect representatives whose duty it will be to decide
the matter. If I am roturned, and any expression of opinion on the subject is required
from me as a representative, I will give it in
favor of having thc capital in the interior of
this colony.
I am in favor of the abolition of tonnage
dues and road tolls, and of levying all the
duties at the port of entry.
I am opposed to any further expenditure
of money on expensive waggon roads, new
that tbe Grand Trunk Road through the
colony has been completed.
The Indian land question I desire to have
settled on the strictest principles of justice
and equity to the aboriginal inhabitants of
the colony. I am in favor of placing
within the reach of the now neglected native
population the eiv lizing benefits of education,
as well as instruction in cultivating the soil
on which they will be settled. We have a
heavy debt, in my opinion, to pay the rod
man of our extensive territory for past neglect
and want of sympathy for his degraded
condition.
I am in favor of the extension of the Common School system, so that wherever there
are children to be taught throughout the
colony a schoolmaster may be placed to
teach them. I also think a standard ef
efficiency should be set up for teachers, and a
Board of Examiners appointed to test their
proficiency in knowledge. By elevating the
character of our public schools we will contribute in an eminent degree to induce families to settle   in   the  country.
I am in favor of throwing open the public
work and contracts of the colony to tho fullest, freest and fairest competition, with a
guarantee that all parties tendering will have
justice strictly meted out to them.
As the country is dependent to a great extent for its general prosperity on the mines,
everything should be done to further their
opening. I am in favor of such modifications in the mining laws as will tend to eradicate the evils of litigation, and give that fixed
security to the investers of capital that will
conduce to the development of tbe vast
mineral wealth of the colony.
I am an advocate of protection to home
industry, and if returned will endoavor to
have the tariff amended so as to give full protection to our farming interests and encourage
local manufactures in the country. I believe
that a high duty on cattle and sheep imported
from abroad would be calculated to encourage
the settlement of a large tract of the pastoral
lands of the colony now lying waste and unproductive.
I am in favor of equalizing the salaries of
all our Stipendiary Magistrates, placing them
on an equality, and changing them from one
district to another biennially.
If returned, I will attend to the local interests of the district and carry out your
wishes as far as may be In my power. I shall
advocate the making of Yale, where the principal importing merchants of tho colony reside, a Port of Entry, with bonded warehouses. The necessity for a Court House at
the same town has already been pointed out
to the Government, I will not fail to urge the
matter until steps arc taken to have the work
earriod out.
I* have now touched upon the principal
subjects of interest at this time. Let me not
deludo you, gentlemen electors, with the idea
that I will have the power, if returned, of
carrying the measures of which I am an advocate. You are well aware of the anomalous character of the Legislative Council.
Five independent membors returned by the
people, even they all agree, cannot outvote
ten Government officials. It may be, however, that the Government, to use the memorable words of a distinguished British statesman, "will be wise, and wise in time," in
making prudent concessions to public opinion
and granting those reforms which the country
now stands so much in need of. If the Government is not wise and persists in its past
course of misgovernment, your representative
has no power to carry remedial measures,
but he can, in your name, protest against the
flagrant waste of the public funds; expose
the blighting effect upon the country of maladministration  and  manfully raise his voice
against over taxation. It has been rtpre:
sented that the people of the colony arc indifferent and apathetic on the great question
of Union especially; the best evidence you
can give that you have been misrepresented,
will be by returning me as the exponent of
Union principles. Electors, remssYiber I ask
not your votes on psrsonal grounds—I have
no personal claims upon you—but if you fully
endorse the principles which I advocate, and
believe in my inflexible determination to represent you faithfully—Return Me. If you do
not agree with me on public questions—on the
great issues which I have placed before you—
then on no consideration support me—Reject
Me. I am, gentlemen,
Your faithful servant,
GEORGE WALLACE.

Tslp, September 4, ig«<-;, 23 BRITISH COLUMBIA TRIBUNE.
YALE, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1866.
Editorial Magnanimity.—The editor of
tho British Columbian has had tlio magnanimity (?) In*-* late issue, to only treat his
readers to a column^ and a half of a laudatory
puff of himself as a Candidate for New Westminster, and depreciatory remarks regarding
his opponent, Dr. BlackX Taking such an advantage of an adversaryXstrikingly proves
the danger of placing a local editor in a
doubly representative character. Can the
public expect fair and dispassionate reports
of the proceedings of tho Council in the
event of Mr. Robson's return ? After such
an exhibition of political rancour as he has
manifested in his issue of the 3d instant, we
think they cannot. If the electors return
the editor of tho Columbian, it will not be
long until they will be forced again to start
another paper to protect themselves and give
them and the country truthful reports of the
proceedings of the House. Better for the
people to be wise in lime. We do not approve of Dr. Black's Union principles by any
means, but he or any other candidate should
have fair play and not be misrepresented by
a papor whose columns should belong of right
to tlie public, and not be prostituted to the
personal elevation of Mr. Robson.
Colonial Hotkl, Yali.—Messrs. Perrie k
Latremoulliere have opened a hotel and
restaurant, on Front street, Yale. The house
is new, has been fitted up in the best style,
and has every convenience that can insure
tho comfort of guests. The cooking is of rare
excellence and the table will always be sup-
pflld with the best the market affords. The
bedrooms aro clean and comfortable, and
private rooms are kept for families. The bar
is stocked with first-class liquors and cigsrs.
The proprietors solicit a trial of the house
from the traveling public.  Terms moderate. *
Fort Yalk Hotkl.—This old and well
known hotel, situated near the Hudson Bay
Company's store, will be found by miners on
their arrival here from Cariboo and Big Bend,
to be a comfortable and well kept house. A
good cook is engaged, the table is supplied
with the best of everything, and prices for
board are lower than at any other establishment. The proprietors are Kelly k Lane,
and Mr. Kelly is always on hand to attend to
customers. *
Elkctiom Ihtellioinck.— The contest for
the representation of New Westminster will
rest between Dr. Black and Mr. Robson, and
both parties are engaged in a keen canvass.
Mr. Holbrook is expected to have a walk ever
for Lillooet and Douglas. The elections will
all como off immediately. It is reported that
Mr. Cornwall, formerly representative for this!
district, will be the new member for Columbia
and Kootenay.
FRiiGnriKO.—A Mr. Harnett complains of
our publishing an item under this head in our
last issue, without giving him credit for being
the source through which we obtained the information. We certainly did not consider
that Mr. Harnett had any claim to acknowledgement for information not compiled by
himself but by gentlemen belonging to this
city.
Firm at New Wistmivstzr.—On Thursday
night last two fires occurred at New Westminster—the first at Mr. Holbrook's wharf
and the second in stables belonging to Mr.
Moody. Very little damage was done to the
wharf, but the stables were entirely consumed.
The "Hyacks" were very active on the occasion and performed effective service in preventing the spread of the devouring element.
Editorial Pkrsomalitiis.—The  editor of
the  Columbian has again been indulging his
DiPMSBioir.—During the past week a sale;ptnchant for personalities by firing off some
of   thc   effects  belonging to  the  estate ofLgeorpion.i squibi ,t ourlelTMi    if he can-
Messrs. Dodge & Co. took place in this colony, j not find more interesting matter to fill the
columns of his paper with, he has our full
permission to pursue his favorite amusement,
until he has sent the Columbian to the same
Caxdioatk kor Lillooet District.—The
Hon. Mr. Holbrook is a candidate again for
the Lillooet district. If the people have not
a local man to return we think they should
support their old and tried member in preference to a stranger. During the three years
Mr. Holbrook has been in the Council he has
always been on the side of liberal and enlightened measures. With the exception of
increasing the allowance to the Governor, he
has invariably supported principles favorable
to retrenchment. On the Union question Mr
Holbrook is sound, and as to protection to
our farming and milling interests, he has
proved his anxiety and determination to
favor them, by his ardous and successful struggles in the past to free them from imposts
which stood materially in the way of their
progress. Mr. Holbrook is in favor of a
Homestead Law—a measure of the utmost
importance to the settlers of the country,
and lie will oppose increased taxation, no
matter in what shape it may be brought forward. We strongly recommend Mr. Holbrook
to the electors in the event of there not being
a local candidate.
Telegraphic Summary.
UNITED   STATES.
President Johnson has been received with
a perfect ovation in his progress through the
Western cities. He was present at the laying
of the corner stone of the Douglns monument
at Chicago, and the populace gave him a most
enthusiastic reception. The Southern Union
Convention met at Philadelphia and endorsed
the action of Congress. Warren Eldridgo,
clerk of Wells, Fargo k Co., San Francisco,
has been arrested for embezzling $4,000 from
the firm. In the local elections in San Francisco the Union party were triumphant.
EUROPEAN NEWS.
Peace between Saxony and Prussia has not
yet been ratified, and Count Bismarck refused
to reoeive a deputation from North Schleswig
to present a petition for restoration to Denmark. A revolt has taken place in Caudia,
Greece, tho particulars of which are not
given. Arrangements were in progress for
ceding Venetia to Italy, and the Austrian
troops were about to evacuate the Quadrilateral. The cholera is making sad ravages
in Italy.

TO MESSRS. ARMSTRONG, SCOTT, FLEM
ING, AND OTHERS, ELECTORS OF THE
DISTRICT OF NEW WESTMINSTER:
Gentlimkit,—I have to acknowledge receipt of the requisition signed by a large
number of the electors of this district, asking
me to allow myself to be put in nomination
as a candidate for the representation of this
District in the Legislative Council, I regret
that circumstances ever which I have no control will prevent me from complying with
your request on this occasion. Thanking you
for the confidence reposed in me,
I remain, gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
23 WM. FISHER.
Mr. Backus of Victoria being the auctioneer.
The prices realized were unprecedentedly
low. The steamer Hope only brought $1000.
Twenty head of the finest work cattle in the
country averaged $160 a yoke—half their
value. Excellent freight waggons did not
average more than $100 each, and a train of
splendid pack mules were sold for $61 each
to Messrs. Oppenheimer. Such a sacrifice of
property has not been witnessed in the colony
at any former period, and shows the depression now prevailing in the country. Messrs.
Nelson k Co. purchased the cattle and waggons, and Capt. Fleming the steamer.
grave as the Scorpion.
Diclihkd.—We sometime since received a
letter from Mr. Champness, an ex official of
Clinton, complaining in very severe terms of
the conduct of Mr. Elliott, J. P., towards him.
We have carefully read over the document
sent us, and we confess that we cannot discover any grounds for the complainant's
grievance's. It strikes us that instead of being
opposed in any way to Mr. Champness, Mr.
Elliott has been friendly and kindly disposed
to him. The complainant has only himself
to blame for losing his situation, as it is shown
by the official documents referred to in thc
correspondence, that Mr. Champness virtually
resigned his appointment under the Government. 	
Cariboo.—We have news from Cariboo to
the 3d instant. Water on Williams Creek
was very scarce, and many companies were
obliged to stop work in consequence. The
United Company, on Conklin's Gulch, had
commenced taking out pay ; tbe latest washing up for 24 hours work wss 100 ounces.
Several claims on Williams Creek were doing
well, and on Grouse Creek the Heron claim
yields per week 145 ounces; the Short Bend
company, Full Rigg company, Discovery and
Ne'er do Well company were all making
wages.        	
Nkit Mail Steamer.—The steamer Active
left San Francisco on Saturday last for Victoria and New Westminster.
Lucky.—It is reported that Frank Way and
Billy Armstrong,  both  formerly well known
in British Columbia, have made a lucky strike
in Montana. A company of five, to which
Way and Armstrong belong, took 1,600
pounds of gold out of a claim on McClellan's
Gulch in a very short time. The party had
left the mines with their bootv.
Cidar Creek.—Duncan McMartin has been
to  this creek,   and stated to our informant
that he thought about 2000 feet of the lower
part of tbe creek would pay from $30 to $40
a day to the hand. The upper part of the
creek has not been prospected. The Diioovery
Company were taking out from 9 to 11 ounces
day-   '     	
Accident.—On Friday night last, as tha
steamer Alexandra was coming to at  Mr.
Holbrook's wharf, New Westminster, through
the darkness or some other eause, she was
driven into the wharf, breaking it down and
doing considerable damage to the property.
Thc steamer sustained no damage.
Cahon Criik.—Good reports are given of
the prospect of quarts leads turning out well
on this creek, but the alluvial diggings were
not yielding encouragingly. John Perrin had
discovered a new creek about half way between this creek and Williams that prospected
well. 	
Robbrrt.—One thousand dollars wss stolen
from Martin's ealeon, Cariboo, on the 2flth
ultimo. Half the money belonged to the
saloon keeper and the balance to Ned Buckley,
Marks and another sport. Buckley lost
about $240.     ,

Capital Punishments.—During the passage
through the House of Lords of a bill regulating capital punishments, Lord St. Leonards
moved that the preeent custom of executing
eriminale in public be continued, but the
members decided in favor of private executions by 75 votes to 25. Another instance of
England adopting American,reforms.
'Ten years ago there were not more
than 3,000 or 4,000 acres planted with thc

not less than 2.000,000 acres so planted.
Formerly American wine would scarcely
bring $1 a gallon, and now it sells nt from $2
to $6 per gallon.
