THE  AMERICAN BADEN BADEN-SARATOGA.
[Correspondence of the Boston Post.]
At this season of the year Saratoga be
comes a sort of informal Congress of those
elegant vagrants,   the gambling  fraternity.
Three yearB of racing has resulted in not only
developing a  spirit   of toleration   for   the
gaming table among the municipal authorities
of " the  springs,"  but,  as  nearly as I can
judge,  has pretty thoroughly indoctrinated
the Saratogani with the idea that " faro" may
be a blessing in disguise.    At all events Mor-
rissey has so sugared the disreputable pill he
had forced upon the community, by princely
local charity and munificent gifts to churches
and philanthropical societies, that the "game"
may now be considered as fully established
and as firmly founded as immense gains and a
guarantee of non-intervention can make it.
From the single " bank" that Mor:issey boldly
initiated at the outset of the racing association, the number of these institutions has increased rapidly, until nearly every popular
saloon in the village is now provided with an
extensive and gombrc " back-room" in which
fortune and the verdant may be mutually
tempted.   In many of these Morrissey has a
controlling interest, probably from the fact
that his name alone is considered a tower of
strength among the sporting men, and it is
shrewdly judged that where his gains are at
stake, the "selectmen" will wisely hold aloof
until    "a   mote   convenient   season."    At
rapidly as " faro" and its hosts have become
domesticated in these heretofore staid and
proper precincts, the great parent "bank" is
yet without a successful rival, though one or
two mushroom concerns have started up of a
night snd "broke" before day.    Its leading
character is further determined in the fact
that while the lesser establishments have to
complain of a falling off in receipts by comparison with last year's returns, the original
institution  confesses to a larger sweep into
its  colters than  appertained to its previous
season.     These calculations  are of course
founded  upon   the status of the respective
games at  the   close of the races, when the
ethics of faro provide for a rigid and conscientious squaring of accounts between tho
proprietor of the bank and his dealers and
decoys.    Various correspondents,  who from
time to time glance hap-hazard at the run and
success of the   "game," have educated the
public  to believe in the most preposterous
estimates of the gains and losses of the participants.   For instance, a Saratoga letter to
a New York paper asserts that on Wednesday
last, the Morrissey exchequer stood possessed
of $150,000 as the results of the success of
the week.   Yet I learn semi-officially on the
Tuesday following—the raees closed the day
before—that the customary summing up of
the " cash on hand" showed the accumulation
of really but $77,000, with a handful of " I.
O. XL's" still to be heard from.   But even
that sum is a monstrous amount to strike from
the pockets of the multitude, without a sou
of equivalent, besides being only a fraction
of that vast total that the " bank" has appropriated from its customers, and from which
its  losses have  been dipped by handsful of
thousands.   Individual losses are said to have
been more severe this season than ever before,
and many a sporting man who came with a
pocket full of greenbacks to the races, left
the city beggared in funds, and even despoiled
of watches and diamonds, by the insatiable
maw of the   " tiger."     Early in the week,
Ben. Wood was known to have gone back to
New York, a sufferer to the extent of $50,000,
$17,000 of which were sacrificed at a morning's sitting before the races, which began at
noon.   And this,  by  the way, was accomplished under the unlucky auspices of a game
called "Boston," a "short-card game," doubtless thoroughly  familiar to tbe denizens of
the   "Hub."     A few   days prior to* this, a.
notorious sporting gent named Losier, suddenly disappeared from the "jungle," a loser
by about $30,000.   His exit was accomplished
under   circumstances   of   suck   remarkable
privacy and haste that, in tke haunts of his
reverses,  wagers are still pending upon the
probability that he has committed suicide—
the odds being in favor of that supposition
On Sunday  night three men, two of them
sporting   characters,   lost   an aggregate of
$30,000.    Though not at all acquainted, there
seemed to be sufficient sympathy of impulse
to carry them beyond the gates of tke city
by tho  earliest train.   As a general thing
there has been no whimpering, however heavy
the losses, and it is proverbial among the
" craft" that a man who has the nerve to
gamble extensively, as a rule, is possessed of
the courage to stand under the ruin he has
wrought. In fact, you rarely see more philosophic calmness than is exhibited at the
gaming-table, nnd the sufferers I have but
just depicted are said to have been no exception to this desperate order of reasoning.
GAMBLING DBFOITMENT.
Generally speaking, we consider that most
people keep their solemnity and respectable
deportment for a church; yet it is equally
obviouB that the sporting element reserve
theirs for a gambling table. The well-bred
quietude and decorous stillness of Morrissey's
rooms, for instance, were the greater in proportion to the height of play going forward.
A sensible people are we Americans, and
quite as much afraid of the jibes of our
countrymen and companions, as the ruin that
impends above an approach upon faro. It is
not enough that men should be. wrecked in
finances complete and final; but it seems as
if every man of the enwrapt groups that
surround thtse tables felt impelled to meet
his ruin with easy propriety and thorough
breeding. To my mind the decorum is more
awful than any scene of violence and despair.
True, the enforced calmness, the pent-up
passions, keep the fluttering heart from any
outbreak of words, but, sportsmen as they all
are who court this seene, the oldest training
cannot completely subdue the emotions that
speak from blood-shot eyes, a livid cheek, and
compressed lips. The gambler is essentially
the creature of implicit hope, and, whatever
shock it meets from disappointment, it still
remains as long as there exists an atom of
vital flame to kindle into a blaze before the
breath of fortune. For the first few days of
the concerted contest against the bank, the
latter had little to boast of in the way of
spoils. Tho crowd lost heavily to be sure,
but thero were individuals who won in the
name proportion, and not unfrequently two or
three out of the group would take to their
hotels, as the proceeds of the night's work,
$25,000 and $30,000. But this was not to
last to the exclusive detriment of the bank,
and by tha middle of the week the lucky star
of the Club House seemed to have taken the
ascendant surely, and with such magnificence
that the result of the last day's play, Monday,
footed up $28,000 clear gain, and this was
won inside of four hours—a net profit of
$7,000 per hour!
THE SUPFIR.
Meanwhile, it if 11 o'clcck; supper has
just been announced, and our party are
suavely besought to regale the "inner man."
Without waiting for an assent, this "Brum-
mel" of the sporting moude airily becomes
our cicerone, chatting gaily thc while, until,
amid suoh nattering attentions, confidence
and nerve return to us. The supper room is
flooded with light, and scintillating with
burnished plate and costly dies of Bohemian
glassware. Slender columns of silver rear
themselves from the centre of the board, and
at the top is a silver counterfeit of branches
and foliage so closely intertwined that a pyramid ef oranges, strewn with the rich clusters
of the grape, is held in its arms. To further
carry out this fancifal eoneeit, two perfect
silver antelopes are a part of the basis of the
tree, and, with towering antlers, stretch their
long necks to eatch the long droop of the
purple fruit that seems to fall through the
overhanging branches. Beautiful Venetian
vases are scattered here and there, in which
are fragrant bouquets of rare flowers. Tall,
stately decanters, at this opening of the feast,
ruby to tho very brim, flank almost every
turn of the elbow, and, as you take a seat,
a black waiter inverts one of the quartette of
tiny flagons that are grouped at every cover,
and softly desires to know which of the
beverages would best meet your approval as
an "appetiser." For the rest, prepare for
birds, fish and meats, done to the most delicious turn, aud nondescript dishes that are
sent up by the cook as specimens of artistic
perfection, and of whose condiments the
keenest palate cannot guess, though the flavor
is delicious and well defined. It is a banquet
such as few merchant princes would feel warranted in setting forth every night, and such
as Morrissey does not provide without an income quite commensurate with the expenditure.

■WHS?
THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT.
nonsense, as neither Governor Seymour " nor
any other man" can obstruet commerce and
divert it from its natural channels. Besides,
under Union the. independent representatives
of the people will have real power placed in
their hands in the government of the eountry,
as they will outnumber the magistrates in the
Council, who are the only parties subject
to his Excellency's influence. There is another
point to which we would invite attention:
Does our contemporary suppose that the
Legislative Council will be compelled to hold
its session in the New Westminster Camp?
If he doss, he is greatly mistaken, for we
have the liest authority for stating that after
the Council is called together, it can adjourn
by resolution to meet wherever it likes—in
Yale, Victoria, or any place else in the colony
—and it will meet anywhere but in New Westminster. We have further to ask, is it likely
that the Governor will prefer the isolation and
seclusion of the New Westminster Camp to
the attractions of Victoria, with a splendid
residence, during the winter? It is absurd to
think so, and the whining of our contemporary tho Chronicle about Union being a loss to
Victoria, is as ridiculous as it is childish.
Victoria has everything to gain by Union,
and New Westminster will lose everything
she now possesses by the change. The whole
country will be the greatest gainer, however,
by the reduction that will take place in the
public expenditure from the amalgamation of
offices and lessening the number of officials.
With respect to the heavy debt on this
colony, which the Chronicle seems to think
is going to carry Vancouver Island into
bankruptcy, our contemporary's apprehensions are all groundless. This colony, under
a prudent and economical expenditure—now
that the roads are made—ean wipe out her
debt, large as it is, in a very few years, and
what is more, wipe out the debt of Vancouver
Island along with it. The question of the
seat of Government is one that cannot be
settled immediately, but its consideration will
not be loig deferred after Union is complete.

BARNARD'S   STAGES!
Our New Wertminster contemporary claims
that the question of the seat of Government
is no longer an open one, that even under
Union it must be kept where it is at present.
This, to say the least, is going a little too
fait, inasmuch as it goes far beyond what
even Governor Seymour has had the boldness
to U*mand for his favorite city. If our contemporary had read his Excellency's celebrated dispatch attentively, he would have found
that Mr. Seymour admitted that the question
of the capital was au o^en one, and that the
ssit of Government "must at no distant date
be removed to the interior of this colony.
That such a change will be made no one need
have thc slightest doubt, as the people of the
interior are united on having the seat of Government removed from where it is at present.

that the people of a colony arc not to havelxTrKEREAS J. MITCHAEL, OF YALE,

With respect to New Westminster, the moment

All the solicitudo nnd affection for the capital

for the Yale and Douglas steamers is at the

Governor Seymour will not allow Buch an arrangement to be carried out, to the destruction of New Westminster.    This is so much

FIRE AT NEW WESTMINSTER.
We regret to learn that a fire occurred, on
Saturday morning last, in the printing office
of the British Columbian newspaper in New
Westminster, which resulted in the total destruction of the plant of the paper. The fire
occurred late at night, and was discovered
by the town watchman, who gave the alarm.
It originated in the press-room, on the basement story, and so quick did the flames
spread that before the fire company could
bring the hose to play on the house the work
of destruction was almost complete. The
type was melted by the heat, and tho presses
are greatly damaged. The " Hyacks" exerted
themselves in a most praiseworthy manner,
and to their exertions must be attributed the
safety of the adjoining buildings. The loss
of the office is a serious one to the proprietors,
as it contained a most valuable collection of
printing material. The amount of damage
sustained cannot be short of $3,000. How
the fire originated is a mystery, but it is supposed to have been througk a match dropped
on the floor. The employees had been at
work to eleven o'clock on Friday night, preparing for publication on the following morning. The utmost sympathy is felt for the
proprietors, Messrs. McMillan & Robson, and
a public subscription waa raised for them
after the fire which amounted to $700.

Suspictid Murduk.—From  a gentleman
who arrived here from Cariboo last night, we
learn that the body of a man was found about
twenty yards from the wagon road, within
half a mile of Mr. Edward's ranch, above
Cottonwood, on Monday last. Tho corpse
must have lain at least four or five weeks, as
decomposition had set in. The deceased was
a large man, well dressed, and at the time our
informant passed had not been identified.
Hie coat and a knife were lying by the side of
the corpse when it was discovered. A wound
made by a bullet was behind one ear, and
little doubt existed that tho unfortunate man
was murdered. An inquest had not been
held.
Quartz.—A large quantity of quarts came
down last evening from Canon Creek to be
sent to San Francisco for assay. Great praise
is due to Mr. Barnard, who brought it through
in time to be conveyed by the mail steamer.
He alio sent a special stage for some that was
left behind. If the quartz turns out well, a
mill will be brought up immediately. Great
excitement exists at Quesnelmouth about the
quartz discoveries.

Colonial Hotil, 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
the comfort of guests. The cooking is of raro
excellence and the table will always be supplied 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 cigar*.
The proprietors solicit a trial of the house
from the traveling public.   Terms moderate. *
Fort  Yalk  Hotsl.—This "old   and   well
known  hotel, situated near the Hudson Bay
Protection Riquirsd.—From the hostile
attitude assumed by the Blackfoot Indians
towards tho whites, grave apprehensions are
entertained that they may make an attack on
the people at tho Kootenay mines, and as
there aro no arms in camp beyond a few
"six-shooters," serious consequences may ensue. It is the duty of the Government to
send some guns over to the magistrate in
order that ho may organize a corps from
among the minors for defence of the lives and
property of the inhabitants in the country.
Kootunay.—We learn from a party who
arrived from Wild Horse Creek on Saturday
last, that thero were 300 Chinamen and about
1C0 white meD in the mines. The majority
were making good wages. The Celestials intend wintering on the Creek, and the merchants are importing large quantities of staple
articles for winter use. Prices ruled high, and
traders were making good profits. Messrs.
Oppenheimer'* trains were met on the way in
to the mines.
Thk Officials.—It will not be known until
Governor Seymour returns what changes will
take place on the official staff. Mr. W. A. G.
Young, by right of seniority, will more than
likely be the Colonial Secretary. Whilst Mr.
Young's lengthened experience peculiarly well
qualifies him for the position, yet universal
regret will be felt at losing Mr. Birch, who has
become a general favorite throughout the
colony.	
Th_ Court Housk.—Unless something is
done immediately to have a Court House
erected in this town it will be too late to do
anything this fall, and the matter must stand
over until next year. Why not set about so
urgent a matter immediately, particularly
when the amount required to be expended is
so trifling?	
Thi Mail Steamer.— The steamer Active
left San Francisco on Wednesday last, and
arrived at Victoria on Sunday. She will
probably be in New Westminster to-day, and
her mails will be here on Thursday next.
Sho brings the Eastern mail that arrived at
San Francisco on Monday last.
Bank of British Colombia.—Mr. D. M.
Lang, the principal officer of this institution
at Victoria, has been recalled by tho Directors and has left for England. Mr. Lang denies the roport that the Bank is about to take
coercive moasures against our struggling merchants to call in balances.
g^-Mr. D. Cleal, whose well known Dining
and Coffee Rooms, three doors west of the
Occidental corner, Government street, Victoria, were the resort of all who sought the
best accommodation at the lowost figure, will
re-open his establishment on or about the Jst
of October.	
Ecclisiastical.—The Bishop of Columbia
preached yesterday in St. John's Church
in this town to a numerous and attentive congregation.
Thi Crops.—The  crops along the wagon
road are nearly all harvested.   Mr. Woodcock
informs us that he never saw finer wheat than
is grown in the upper country this year, and
he thinks there is enough to make flour to
supply the country next year, if the population is not larger than it is at present.
Governor Siymour Leaves England.—Th»
Cbroniolo says that a dispatch from Administrator Birch, at New Westminster, states that
Governor Seymou: sailed from Southampton
for Victoria on the 27th ult. Mr. Birch received a telegram announcing the faet on
Wednesday. Mr. Seymour may be expected
to arrive here about tho first week in November.
Goixa  Homi.—Mr.  E. Cornwall and Mr.
Kingscote,  of Ashcroft Farm, arrived here
yesterday en route for Ingland. Both gentlemen wero highly esteemed by thoir numerous
acquaintances in this colony, and their departure is greatly regretted. We wish them
a pleasant voyage to their native land.
Returned.—Tho Hon. A. N. Birch, Administrator of the Government, arrived here
from the interior on Monday last.    Mr. Birch
has been two months on a tour through the
colony. He visited all the mining eamps, and
traveled 1,700 miles on hie journey of inspection.
Arriving.—During the past two weeks a
considerable number of miners have arrived
from Cariboo and Big Bend. Tho short supply of water on Williams Creek was the
cause of a good many men leaving earlier in
the season than usual.

BRITISH COLUMBIA TRIBUNE.
YALE, MONDAY, OCTOBER 1, I860.
A quiet family in the country were electrified tho other day by the receipt of a telegraphic
dispatch from a. daughter who was teaching in
a distant city. The telegram was passed around
and duly admired. The dashing boldness of
the chirography eamc in for its share of
praise. The old lady shook her head with an air
of gratified pride as she ejaculated, slowly:
" Ann Maria allers did write like a man; guess
she's ben takin'writin'lessons; this here beats
her last letter all holler!"
An irnpaitent Welshman called to his wife
" Come, come, isn't breakfast ready ? I've
hail nothing since yesterday, and to-morrow
will be third day!" This is equal to the call
of the stirring housewife, who arroused her
maid at four o'clook with : " Come Bridget,
get up! Here 'tis Monday morning, to-morrow is Tuesday, tho next day's is Wednesday
—half tho week gone, and nothing done yet!"
Say what you will of old maids, their love
is generally more strong and sincere than that
of the young milk-and-water creatures whose
hearts vibrate between the joys of wedlock
and the dissipations of the ball-room. Until
the heart of the young lady is capable of setting
firmly and exclusively on one object, her love
is like a May-shower, which makes rainbows,
but fills no cisterns.
Why is a clock the most modest piece of
furniture ? Because it covers its face with its
hands and runs down its works. -
