THE STEAM SUBSIDY.
A favorite hobby for years with a little
knot of politicians at tiie capital has been
to havo a direct steamer running between that
place nnd San Francisco. -How much theaxL-.
vantages that would accrue from such an
undertaking have been magnified everyone
taking any interest in thc aff.'irs of the colony
well knows. The cost of a subsidy of course
was nothing'compared with the promised re-
«ults to New Westminster. The embryo city
was to be built up into a thriving commercial
emporium, and the local trade arising from
the influx of direct passengers would more
than connterbalance the"expense of the subsidy, especially as the capital p-iid so infinitesimal a part of the amount! It was in vain
that persons from the interior protested
against the squandering of the public money
on such an object, if not carried out properly.
It did not require much prescience to know
i hat the result, under the arrangement entered
into, would be more detrimental to the commercial interests of the colony than otherwise, but as matters stand, the result is even

weather has been cool, which having checked
the rise of the creek has been favorable to
mining, and several additional companies
have got fairly under way ; on the whole the
prospects for a good summers work we think
never looked brighter than at present.
Above the cation the companies which have
been at work all winter still continue taking
out pay, but the banks arc not yet sufficiently
thawed to allow hydraulic washing to commence nor is there water yet in the Bed Rock

has been running now for three months and
vhatthti politicians impressed upon their dupes
in the capital as certaiu to occur, has been falsified by actual events. Business in every department of trade in New Westminster instead
of being augmented has really decreased
under the "direct" steamer arrangement,
and trades people who wcre formerly blind
to everything but the teaching of their political lenders, are now beginning to free that
they havo committed a gross error in listening
to i he sophistries of their false guides. If the
results of the expenditure that has been going
on only fell upon the authors of the arrangement iu question, we could afford to pass it

pense erecting a splendid aqueduct to bring
the water of Black Jacket Gulch across Williams Creek to the level of the top of the
hill, has commenced ground sluicing, but they
have not water enough yet to make much
progress. Below them we find the Foster
Campbell Company still hard at work building
a strong bulkhead to keep the creek off their
ground and running a drain round their shaft,
they expect to get to work again in a few days,
and having struck good pay in the high ground
just before they were drowned out, they have
great hopes of being quickly reimbursed for
the heavy outlay they have been at during
the winter. Below them none of the creek
claims above the Calidonia can work on ae-
mencing to work their front ground througi

On Conklin Gulch the Ericcsnn and Sawmill

the amount, of subsidy paid is not less than
$4,000 a month. What do we get for that
outlay? Nothing but a competition in our
trade which the merchants here cannot meet.
The subsidized steamer brings her passengers
to Victoria where they are landed to roam
about for twenty-four hours, and that city
being a free port, as a matter of course the
miners are smart enough to understand they
can buy their supplies there cheaper than at
the head of navigation at Yale. The merchants here cannot bring a pound of goods in
without paying the duties, whilst the miner
can purchase everything he requires in Victoria and bring it in without paying a dollar
of either import duties or tonnage dues. Is
this fair to our merchants who are so heavily
taxed and vho are actually paying the subsidy
which the Government, at the bidding of a
few men who have nothing to lose, is squandering in such a gross manner? If the principal merchants of this place and the interior had been  consulted—and thev are the

PAINFUL RUMOR.
A rumor nffecting the honor and credit of
our Government has been going the rounds
for some days past, and it has created a most
orieasy feeling among the public. When we
consider that the present Administration has
had no financial policy worthy of the name,
and that it has pursued a system of reckless
4-xtravngiince and wasteful expenditure that
eonld scarcely be paralleled, we are prone to
believe that there is some foundation for the
current rumor. We forbear from making
more particular allusion to the subject at
present, ss we feel that consequences which
*o drend to contemplate might be the result
io the colony.

Terrible Catastrophe.
SEVENTEEN   MEN   DROWNED.
We received news by Express last evening
that a boat capsized in the Columbia river on
its way down from the Big Bend mines, one
day last week, when the seventeen men who
were in it were drowned.
Thk Steamer Marten.—Although it has
been predicted by many that the Hudson Biy
Company would not have their steamer in
running order on the lakes before the middle
of June next, yet the predictions have been
falsified by the events of the past week, as
the following telegram from Cache Creek,
dated the 24th inst. will show :
" I have the pleasure of informing you that
the steamer Marten will make her first trip on
this day at noon. She will commence her
regular trips on Saturduy next immediately on
receipt of the mail. W. A.'Mouat."
When we consider the short time that has
elapsed since the timber in the Marten was
growing in the forest, -and the difficulty of
getting men and material up to Shuswap at a
most inclement season of the year, it redounds
greatly to the credit of the company for public spirit and enterprise, to find their contract
carried out with such commendable promptitude. It has been the custom of some of the
high officials of the colony to pass sneering
remarks at the energy displayed by the company, but it would have been well for the
country if some of her servants, who are so
well paid for doing their duty were to imitate
the example of the company in regard to their
new steamer. To Mr. Moffat and Mr. Thompson great praise is due for the energy displayed in preparing the lumber and getting
the boat built in so short a time, and Mr.
Suffem nnd his assistant are deserving of the
highest commendation for the- marvellously
short time occupied iu getting the machinery
put together. We must not omit to give Mr.
McKay his due share of the honor attached
to the expediting of the work. He was one
•if the first, we believe, to go up with the men
in the depth of winter to inaugurate a work
that in its results is a credit to all concerned.
We trust that under Captain Mount the vessel
will be successfully and profitably employed
for ninny years to come.
From the Big Bend Mines.
During the past week a number of miners
arrived here from the interior. They give
conflicting accounts of the new mines. Some
think the country will turu out a rich mining
region, others are of a different opinion. The
following accounts are given as a fair sample
of the statements made:
From a Canadian who arrived hew on
Wednesday last direct from tho mines we
learn that the snow was still very deep on
French and McCullough's Creeks with the exception of near the entrance to the creeks,
where it was nearly all off. So far not much
prospecting had been done. In many places
encouraging prospects had been obtained.
Several claims ou both creeks were paying,
but nothing very " big" had so far been taken
out. Saw quartz cropping up on the creeks,
and in (he opinion of our informant and many
others with whom he conversed, the country
is auriferous. The. water in the creeks whs
rising very fast, and the belief among old
miners was that it would be a mouth or six
weeks before much successful mining could be
done. Our informant saw men stake off
claims which were covered with at least twelve
feet of snow. After remaining a few days
running round, these men left the diggings
cursing the country, " that there was nothing
in it." It was raining nearly all the time in
the mines and the men had to put up with
great discomfort in consequence. Thinks the
bars on the Columbia river are very rich and
that good pay will be got out of them in the
after part of the season. Our informant left
for the purpose of working at his ttade (a
shoemaker) in New Westminster for four or
five weeks, and then—if the water has fallen—
to return to the mines, of which he has a
successfully. He says that the mrjority of
men who are coming down country have never
been in the mines at all and know nothing
about them. He thinks the men all went up
too early, and the majority with very scanty
means. Provisions at the mines rated as follow: Flour, 60 cents; bacon, $1 75; tea, $3;
beans, $1. Our informant thinks that a
moderate outlay at present would make the
truil over the divide practicable. He also
gives it as his opinion that of those who are
now leaving the mines a large proportion will
be back again in the full, when he -'xpeets
there will be stirring news concerning rich
strikes.
LETTER FROM SAVANA'S FERRY.
May 18th, 1866..
I promised to keep you posted, so I thought
I would drop you a line or two before I go
over the lakes. 1 found it very hard to pari
with Boi)A-parte, but us I was short of cash
I thought it best to go to Cache Creek, but as
that .place belied its name I came on tu
Savana's Ferry, and a ferry nice place it is.
I stopped .at the Ferry Hotel, and I /bund Mr,
K. quite K-pable of keeping a gocd house.
Savana's Ferry is at the west end of Kamloops lake, on the north side of Thompson
river.     It was   called   Kamloops from   the
From Mr. J. L. Shappard of Victoria, who Camels residing there, and Shuswap was so
arrived here on Saturday, we have obtained called because the Hudson Bay Company used
the following intelligence: Mr. S. left French
Creek, where he has been for six weeks, only
ten days since. The Discovery Company were
getting a wheel built. Iu sluicing off some
surface gravel to change the course of the
creek the compauy took out from 1| to 8 oz.

to swap shoes for furs and skins with the Indians. Seymour City is situated at the head
of Shuswap lake, and called Sey-mour because
there you see 7)iore long fates th»n you do
here. I write to cnution you against being
led away by false, bad and discouraging accounts of the Big  Bend  mines.    You  must
know that several men are returning, but re-
Bailey andMunro Companies were also makingImember two-fourths of those that return from
preparations to go to work properly. ThejSeymour never went into the mines: one-
hitter company had taken out pay this season, |fourth of them went there dead broke and
but they had got off the lead. Mr. 8. has no
doubt whatever that these are all good claims,
and that their merits have  not been exag
gerated. Miners have gone to work for, bed
rock pay in them, and there are not a few
persons who have money desirous of purchasing into them at a good price, but tho shareholders will not sell. James Oir is sinking a
shaft some distance up the creek, and there
aro other parties engaged in similar under-j
takings.    In one shaft bed rock was reached
came back the same—why should they grumble?—and the remaining fourth are disappointed miners who found no gold on the top
.of the snow, but waited in their tents
like the renouned Mr. Micawber for something to turn up. Captain Greenhorn,
has just returned, he gives me the fo'-
lowing pitiful account of our rich placer
mines. Ue sa\ s: Seymour Is awful misewable
place. I was there three days and nights at
the  Hotel de Fizzle, and never got a ptir of
New Steamer for the Columbi x.—A letter
has just been received in town from Wash
Eldrick, engineer of thc steamer Forty-Nine
which states that a new steamer is in progress
io run from the Little Dulles to the Big Bend
mines. The timber is being got out for her,
and thc machinery has been ordered from San
Francisco. The new boat will carry 125 tons.
She will be 25 feet beam, 6 feet in the hold,
and of the same power as the Lillooet. The
new steamer will be the property of the owners
of the Forty-Nine. There would seem to be
no diminution in the strong faith which our
American neighbors have always entertained
in regard to the richness of the new mining
region of Big Bend.
Sanitary Arrangements.—Now that small
pox has made its appearance among the
Indians, there should be an inspection of the
various Rancheries contiguous to towns in
order to have something like sanitary measures carried out in them at once. As a precaution against the cholera as well as smallpox, not a moment should be lost in having
instructions issued and properly carried out to
effect an object which must tend to preserve
the public health. We hope the chief constables of police throughout the country will
be instructed to look after this matter without
delay.
Right.—We copy the following item from
the Cariboo Sentinel of the 14th inst.: "We
deem it an act of justice to ourselves, to correct the error into which the editor of the
British Columbian has fallen, in stating in a
late number of his paper that Mr. Wallace
sold out his interest in the Cariboo Sentinel
for $600; the sum was far moro than that
mentioned which we can safely vouch for."
Comment is needless.
Thk Queen's Birth-Dat.—The citizens of
Yale celebrated the birth-day of our good and
gracious Queen by the hoistirg of flags of
" all nations," and the firing of anvils. A
number of ladies and gentlemen made an excursion down the Fraser river in- canoes and
spent a very pleasant time at a pic-nic at
Emery's bar.
The Waggon Road along Cache Creek is
submerged by tho Bonaparte river and is impassable for teams.
most favorable opinion.
A Californian, who got in here on Thursday, states that he was on French aud McCullough's Creeks. Saw nothing there to induce
him to believe that the country is very rich.
Worked a short time on a bench at the mouth
of French Creek, but did not find pay. The
snow was deep on the upper part of tliK
creeks and no prospecting<:ould be done there
in consequence. Thinks it probable that
modf rate pay will be found on McCullough's
Creek. Is returning to California disappointed
with the country.
A German who passed through Yale bound
for the mines, about two weeks since, returned
here on Friday. He is thoroughly disgusted
with the country. No gold to be found, mow
deep, water rising and provisions dear. Is
hastening out of the country. After giving ii
most pitiful detail of the mines and the road
into them, and exhausting his stock of broken
English in denunciations of thc d country,
we were induced to ask the gentleman how
far up the country he got on his journey ?
The reply was—" I ben to Sabana's Ferry."
This closed our interview.
A blacksmith from Victoria who returned
here also gave a most discouraging account of
the mines, and actually induced men to return
without going a step further than Yale. The
sturdy knight of the anvil, it appears from his
own admission, never got further than Seymour.
An American hailing from Port Gamble on
the Sound, got in here on Friday evening from
French and McCullough's Creeks. He is a
most intelligent young man, and gives the following account: He went up with a partner,
thinking he could get on surface diggings that
would pay right off. On arriving at the mines
he found the 6now very deep and not much
work going on. At the entrance of the creeks
the snow had disappeared altogether, but as
he ascended them it was from two feet to ten
feet deep. There were stakes on tho top of
the snow all up the creeks for miles. Went
over both creeks with his partner and made
strict enquiries as to what propects were obtained. Nearly every claim on French Creek
that was being worked was pay in-; less or
more, some an ounce a day to the hand and
others less. The Munro claim paid very
well until they found the bed rock pitching.
As high as ten ounces were washed up in a
day. On McCullough's Creek one shaft had
been bottomed and pay found on the bed
rock ; did not hear how much had been got,
hut the prospect was said to be encouraging.
The water in the creeks was beginning to rise,
and the snow being deep the men, who had
little means, were somewhat discouraged and
were leaving. All, however, who had money
to buy provisions were determined to stop, as
old miners generally like tho country exceedingly and think it will turn out to be all it
has been represented
the country is rich, and he says he saw coarse
gold in tho hands of miners that was taken
out this season. He is so well satisfied with
the prospects obtained that he left $250 worth
of provisions with his partner, who is going
to remain all season in the mines to prospect
and our informant returns to the Sound to his
business so that be may make money to en
