LETTER FROM LYTTON.
ARREST OF FOUR BURG-LARS.
Lytton, April 23d, 1866.
On the night of the 21st inst. Davis' stage
laid over here, and during the night was robbed of a quantity of flour, bacon, etc. The
parties suspected of the robbery wero four
suspicious characters who have been around
here for the last ten days. Nothing was done
about apprehending the robbers until the
plunder was first discovered, the people being
determined to keep a watch upon tlie movements of the suspected. On the night following the stage robbery, they broke into Oppen-
heimer & Co.'s storehouse by bursting the
locks; taking with them a lot of bacon, flour,
tobacco, etc. No noise made about this thing
either, but Indians were quickly put upon
their track. Having left town that day, the
natives discovered them camped about two
miles from here, together with the stolen
goods. As soon as it was ascertained in
town that they had the goods with them, a
company was immediately organized under
the command of our worthy officer, Mr.
Cochrane. The word " march" was given
precisely at 10:50 p. m., when the gallant little
band started off, armed to the teeth with
rifles, six-shooters, pick handles, pokers, and
all kinds of deadly weapons within their
reach. The burglars were found packing up,
ready to start, when the party in pursuit surrounded them, took them all four into custody,
and marched them back into town, lodging their
birds in jail. A little after midnight all that
they had stolen here was found, also a number of burglary tools, slung shots, poison, nnd
other implements belonging to the profession.
The fellows are desperate characters, and I
believe it is a fortunate affair that they have
been detected in their villainous career in
time, before they could have an opportunity
of committing more and worse crimes. Considerable risk was attached to attacking them
at night in the woods. However, every precaution was taken; Capt. Cochrane divided
his corps into two different points of attack,
which succeeded admirably, the Captain himself charging them in front, while his Lieutenant, Mr. T. Buie, with his division, cut off
their retreat by a flank movement, for which
he is deserving of great praise for his gallant
conduct in the affair.    B. B. Sampson, in tllti
rior that the sooner it comes into force the
better. In asking questions, I would also ask
what particular interest your contemporary
takes in the appointment of another judge at
an expense of .£800 and upwards per year
extra to the peoplo, when the County Court
Judges would answer every purpose, and at
the same time make them do a little more
work for the fat salaries they get? There is
something rotten in Denmark. I was asked
the other day by a gentleman from the interior,
"Why the New Westminster newspaper was
like the moon ?" I, of course, gave it up,
when he answered, " Because it has Its different changes." To-day it advocates the abolition of road tolls, to-morrow it repudiates
their partial abolition, and the next day gets
so indignant at the six dollar tonnage dues,
that it stirs up to a mutiny the quiet and
peaceable citizens of New Westminster, who
call an indignation meeting, with the lion,
member for Douglas and Lillooet at their
head, who made a long speech about lumber
and coal, but nary a word about the Harrison
rapids. Resolutions were passed, a committee
appointed (if papers speak the truth) to wait
upon his honor the Administrator of the Government, who, I am sorry to say, paid too
much attention nnd more consideration to
said committee than they were deserving of,
and also in place of giving that measure his
sanction, in their very presence he discharges
them with the assurance that nothing shall
be done in the premises that will interfere
with their interests or the Jerusalem thoy
live in. Har-Gus.

THE COUNTY COURT BILL.
Cache Creek, April 20, 1866.
To the Editor of the Tribune :
Sir,—In lookiHg over the issue of the 18th
just, of your contemporary of New Westminster, I see that the actions of the Supreme
Judge of British Columbia are severely commented on with regard not only to his decision in the Eddy vs. O'Reilly case, but also
attributing to him the paternity of the County
Court Amendment Ordinance. " That he is
jealous of his kingdom and docs not wish to
divide with a puisne judge, soonor than do
which he would rather see the judiciary revolutionized, and tho bungling magistrates
usurping tho functions of Supreme Judges."
In fact he preferring to live alone rather than
have a bad companion. Now, I would ask,
how long is it since your most learned contemporary has taken so deep an interest in
the people of the interior and their inconveniences, or rather, what would be to the
people of this upper country a great inconvenience r If, as it is asserted, that Judge
Begbie is the legitimate father of the said
County Court Bill or Ordinance, I feel happy
and confident in expressing the opinion of tlie
people, that they give Judge Begbie great
credit for its production, and it is earnestly
wished by the whole population of the inlv-
into Court.
Madame V, Delatre vs, G. W. McCully.—
This was an action on a promissory note for
$53 62. It appears the plaintiff, who is a
licensed publican, attended the defendant
during an illness of some duration, and sup
plied him witli the necessaries of life, including some wine. After his recovery, he gave
her a note for the amount she had expended
on his behalf. When time of payment came,
instead of showing his gratitude to the good
Samaritan by meeting the payment, the defendant repudiated the note, pleading the
"Tipling Act" in defence. The magistrate
postponed the case in order to allow plaintiff
to make out a bill of particulars. The course
pursued by defendant created a good deal of
comment outside, and the sympathies of the
public wcre enlisted od behalf of plaintiff.

YALE, MONDAY,   APRIL  SO,  1300.
A MODEL JOURNALIST!
„,,        . ,,. ,    .   .    ...     iunv outside individual, or body of individuals,
There is a newspaper published In New LJ^ thc establishment, maintenance or
Westminster  conducted  by a vulgar scribe)continuance  of any journal  with which  we
were or are connected. Neither have we ever
asked or received, directly or indirectly, any
recompense from Victorians or others for
any services we may have rendered in connec-
lowust scurrility for wit and the fouHest libelsi tion with the press in San Francisco on our
for pungent satire.    Setting at naught all tbe--hri«  trip there;     As to tho measure Of flu'p-'
port  which  we receive from Victoria it may
whose sensibilities are so blunted by a long
indulgence in slander, that he has now come
to such a condition of mind as to mistake the
courtesies and amenities of a public journalist
towards other members of tlie press, he not
only outrages the license of free discussion,
but intrudes upon his unfortunate readers the
grossest personalities and most unmeasured
and deliberate untruths against his opponents
in order to servo the cause of corrupiion he
is paid to   uphold.    It is no wonder that the
now to people coming here from the neighboring States is the name tlie country has got,
under the present Administration, lor bad
government. This we know by coming in
contact in Oregon and California with the
very kind of men we want to develop our resources. Situated as this country is, on the
confines of American territory, with dormant
resources wailing to be developed, the Government should be like a trader who has an opposition shop at his door, and put forth its
utmost energy and vigor to compete with its
rival for what is the basis of wealth and prosperity—population. To be in a position to do
this, "all the anomalies of bad and expensive
government must he removed, and men have
an assurance that if they come here they will
find a better and cheaper administration than
on their own soil. Ten thousand a year additional to the taxation of the country for
three useless officials may be only "a molehill" in the eyes of the Government and its
sycophants, but when the civil list was altogether out of proportion to the wants of thc
colony before the late appointments were made,
the public think that it is a '• mountain" the
Weight of which the oppressed tax-payers of
the country are ill able to bear. If the present Government wishes to convert tlie country
it found prosperous, into a "howling wilderness," it has only to go on in its present
course regardless of the "well understood
wishes of the people," and success will crown
its efforts; but if, on tlie contrary, there is a
desire ip promote the true Interests of the
colony and raise it again to the position it
formerly occupied, e v ill be timely reforms,
reduction of useless . tao.ishnients, and economic outlay of the funds of the state. It is
vain to attempt to justify, by any amount of
special pleading, the late appointments. They
are wholly indefensible.    Can it be necessary
the opinion that its profits during last summer
have not been equalled in the same time by
any paper ever established in this, part of Her
Majesty's dominions. Wo will submit our
books to any respectable accountant, if the
New Westminster editor will do the same
with his, and if the Sentinel did not make
more clear profit in the twenty weeks it was
established on Williams Creek than the New
Westminster rag has ever made in two years,
we will hand over &1(JU to thc Royal Hospital.
With respect to thc statement that we were
" thrown upon Victoria for eleemosynary aid,"
we have to state distinctly and without any
reservation, that the author f this slander
knew perfectly, well lie was propagating a deliberate untruth when he wrote the sentence.
Last year he gave currency to a report, that
the Cariboo Sentinel was promoted, assisted
and supported by the Hudson's Ray Company/.
Now, we will take both these statements together and give the "lie direct" to them. At
no time since we first became connected with
the newspaper press of these colonies have wc
kvek received, directly or indirectly, one
single cent of money or other  support  from
be seen in the two advertisement? only from
that city inserted • in the TaiBUNE. To
our own untiring industry, enterprise and attachment to principle we owe our success
alone, and not to the adventitious aid of others

press, uncontrolled and uncontrollable by out'
side influence, and when we arc unable to .do
that we will cease altogether to have the con-

Bukolaey at Lvti'on.—It will bo seen by
reference to the letter of our correspondent
at Lytton that a burglary was committed there
by four men lately arrived from Victoria. The
party remained some time, on their way up, nt
New Westminster and Yale.    Owing to their
suspicious   movements  iu  both   places,  thc
police kept a sharp lookout for them, which,
doubtless,  prevented them from doing much
harm.    At Yale they made an entrance into
Kimball & Gladwin's store and broke open a
box left thero to be forwarded to the interior.
The box contained dry goods, from which the
fellows made a selection of what they wanted
and left the remainder strewn over the floor.
Sir.  Saunders  went to Lytton on Friday to
take examinations, and after hearing the evidence, fully committed the whole party to appear for trial at the Spring Assize* at Yale on
the 4th prox.    Tlie  prisoners  were   brought
down here  on  Saturday  evening and were
safely lodged in jail.    The following are the
names and nationalities of thc party : Joseph
Alexander, Joseph W.  Prindle and   James
Courcy,  all  Americans; and William  Ross,
Canadian.    Alexander has a cousin in Cariboo,  a  respectable merchant named Gruno-
wski, from whom he received an order for $50
ut Lytton.    Courcy says he has been working
at Leech River in the Mountain Rose claim
for thc last twelve months.   Prindle was lately
in the employ of Mr. Williams, livery stable
keeper, Victoria ; and Ross says ho came out
from Ottawa with his brother in 1802, and has
been working on the II. B. wharf at Victoria
for some time.    Ho informed us that he had
letters of introduction to Mr. Finlayson, who
interested himself in getting him work.   They
arc all  young men, apparently well educated
and intelligent.    They express their' intention
of employing lawyers to defend them at the
Assizes,   and   seem confident of being  acquitted.
Misrepresentations,—Becoming demented
at the success of his business rival, the editor
of the paper published at New Westminster
lias the hardihood to assert that thc amount
of reading matter contained in his paper was
over -10,1100 ems. Distasteful as it is to us to
enter into a business discussion with another
paper, still we cannot, in this instance, allow
such gross misrepresentation to go unanswered.
Tlie last paper issued from the New Westminster press—on the 25th inst.—contained
about two columns more reading matter than
any former issue of the same journal. Our
compositor has carefully measured the amount
of matter it contained, and the following is
the result, viz.: 17,887 ems, including all the
sensation headings which are so conspicuous
in tilliug up space in the paper referred to.
Tlie quantity of solid reading matter in the
1 ist number of the Tribune was over 29,000
ems, being more than the amount contained
in any two ordinary numbers of the New
Westminster leviathan. We are charged by
tlie same immaculate editor with copyiug die
From the Bis Bend Mines.
Mr. Ladner, of the firm of Smith k Ladner,
returned here on Tuesday last from Seymour,
at the head of navigation, which place he
left on Friday hist at noon. He wr.s only
two days crossing tlie lakes to Kaniloops.
Navigation is now open, and a number of
boats were met on the way up. Bill Moore,
with his large barge containing 25 tons ol
freight, was near tlie head of tlie lakes.. The
news from the mines is encouraging. The
miners were busy preparing lumber for sluices
and a number of parties were building houses
on French Creek. Jim May's company were
putting down a shaft where they lately obtained the prospects in the gravel, but had
not reached bed-rock. At Seymour more
than twenty houses are already erected, some
of them substantial and well finished inside.
Building was still going on briskly. Mr. (lag-
gin, J. P., was in Seymour and was kept
actively engaged in issuing mining license*
and recording claims. He had already received a considerable amount of revenue from
these sources. Mr. Moberly arrived the night
before Mr. Ladner left. The following were
the rates for provisions at Seymour: Flour,
22 cents; bacon, 75 cents; tea, $1 25 j sugar,
45 cents; beef, 25 to 30 cents per lb. Work
on the steamer was apparently getting on
slowly, and it will be a considerable time yet
before she is ready for launching.
The account which we lately pave of thc
discovery of a new trail from Seymour to
French Creek, by Cottonwood Smith, is confirmed by Mr. Ladner. Tlie trail which comes
out at j lold River is actually five miles shorter
than ]\\ 'berly's trail to the Columbia River.
This wil bo a saving of nearly forty miles in
the journey.
LATEST.
A letter received here from a reliable party
at Seymour, dated thc 20th inst., mentions
that at latest accounts, there wero from
eighteen inches to two feet of snow on all the
mining creeks in the Big Bend country.

SETTING ASIDE A VERDICT.
To tiik Editor ov thk Tribune.
Sin,—Iu his issue of the 25th instant the
editor of thc British Columbian makes an
attempt to justify his most extraordinary conduct in fulminating tlie most attrocious and
unmeasured abuse against the judge of the
Supremo Court for doing nothing more than
his duty in "setting aside a verdict" in a late
case. In disclaiming any feeling of vindie-
tiveriess against the judge in connection with
the " contempt." i.flair in which tlie heroic
editor so ingloriously figured sonic time since,
I will just say that the public must have some
better evidence of his want of malice than
the publication  of the  most licentious scur
rility   against  the judge   on   every frivolous
occasion that presents itself to him.   In ask-

YALE, MONDAY, APRIL 30, 1866.
VICTORIA  CORRESPONDENCE  OF THE
"TRIBUNE."
We have just heard of the loss of thc
steamer Labouchere. Two people only lost.
This is about the most severe blow these colonies have received. Never mind—better
hick next time. There is a good time coming,
wait a little longer, etc. 	
Victoria, 17th April, 1866.
Two elections are about to come o(F—one
for Victoria city in the room of Selini Franklin, the other for Esquimalt town, to replace
ames Southgate, both of the above named
gentlemen betng-iirEngland.    The fact is as
above stated, but no one would imagine that
such events  were about to take place; not
the slightest interest appears to be manifested,
no excitement whatever, and apparently no
canvassing.   Capt. Stamp is the candidate for
Esquimalt, and professes only to come forward to retain the seat until Mr. Southgate's
return.   He will walk over the course, and
well  it would be if more of his stamp could
be obtained to serve the country.    A seat in
the Assembly of Vancouver Island is not at a
premium just now, indeed it would appear to
be the last resource of bankrupts or those
who are likely to become so;   the reason
whereof is rather puzzling, save that it may
find an explanation in the fanciful idea, that
a member of Parliament cannot be arrested
whilst the Parliament is in session—but they
can be made bankrupts.   It must, however,
be recollected that the Legislative Assembly
will dissolve itself by lapse of time about the
beginning of July next, if it be not put out
of its long endured misery sooner, and consequently no one thinks it worth  while to
spend money in a contested clcetion for a
seat, which may only be possessed for a few-
days, or for a few weeks at furthest.   An
election in tho city of Victoria, it is said, generally costs each candidate a thousand dollars I and may have had to pay even more;
that is paying too dearly for the whistle.   It
is said, moreover, that the House will never
be called together again, but both the colonies
will be united into one, and that one treated
as a Crown Colony.    However probable this
may be, it is nevertheless not by any means
certain,  and up to this time   there   is  no
reason to believe, at all events no one knows,
that tho terms of Union have been decided
upon.     It is said that Gov. Seymour will persuade Her Majesty's Government to do this
and that and t'other thing; that tho scat of
government is to be at Westminster, and so
on; but Gov. Seymour, according to all accounts, is not likely to have his own way in
thc matter, even if that way were thc one represented—which there is sufficient room nt
all events to doubt.   People say Vancouver
Island cannot complain, because they have
iisked to be united to British Columbia upon
nny terms "Her Majesty may be pleased to
grant," but apparently  that does not mean
what Gov. Seymour may be pleased to grant.
As to the seat of Government being at New
Westminster, the assertion seems too absurd
to be behoved.    Thc capital, it is to be presumed, will be in the interior of thc country,
when, it becomes a little more populous, and
until that takes place it will probably remain
at Victoria, where all the necessary offices
are in existence, and they being already built,
will prevent the already over taxed population from being further taxed for the erection
of other useless edifices, when thc scat of
Government is removed elsewhere, what it
assuredly will be.    As it is, it is by no means
improbable that when Her Majesty finds the
two quarreling over their bread and butter,
or snatching at the loaves and fishes, that Ilcr
Majesty may disappoint the growlers and fix
the capital where neither expects or desires;
it being, nevertheless, the Queen's prerogative
to fix tlie site of the capital.
