MEETING  AT  LYTTON  CITY.—DEFEN-
SIVE MEASURES.
A meeting was held at Lytton City, on 26th
ultimo, for the purpose of adopting defensive
measures against tiie threatened invasion of
this town by Fenians. The meeting was
large, and was composed of the most determined and respectable men of the district.
The meeting was called to order at 8 o'clock,
p. m., Mr. L. Hautier in the chair, and Mr.
Thomas Buie discharging the functions of
secretary. After the chairman, in a long and
enthusiastic Bpeech, expressed the purpose for
which the meeting was called, three hearty
cheers were given, which were answered by
the echo of the hills and valleys of tkc surrounding mountains
The Hon. Robt. Smith was loudly called
for, who came forward and said: Gentlemen—
I feel proud of the precautionary steps you
are about to take to defend tha town of Lytton and colony against Fenian invasion, and I
am well aware that every man which I see
before me will bite tlie dust in defence of this
town, or repulse the enemy. Therefore, let
this be a day of resolves, and let us, to-day,
resolve that, live or die, sink or swim, in
storm or in calm, we will stick by the good
ship Lytton; and if she doe1* go down, rather
let us go down along with her, than ever wc
should surrender her to either a foreign or a
domestic foe. Let us take example by the
noble and patriotic acts of the good citizens
of New Westminster; let us fly to arms—let
us muster ourselves into rifle and artillery
corps—let us drill and make ourselves masters
of our weapons, so that in case the invading
foe should advance upon us, we will be prepared to meet and fight them unto tho death
in a noble and patriotic cause, leaving behind
us names—names which of themselves will be
histories—histories which will not only furnish
the first teachings of the youth of British
Columbia, but the proudest recollections of
their manhood will always be, thc achievements of their forefathers, whose names forever shall appear as bright stars in the firma
evidence as to facts, he would never have permitted a special jury to be  called.     Very
often in equity and law courts the judge summons a jary simply for his own advice, not to
ascertain the law but to determine the factB.
Juries were called in eourts of law to decide
facts, because we placed more reliance in the
judgment of twelve men of one sort than in
that of one man of another sort.   With regard to the finding of juries, where & judge
believes that a jury finds a verdict contrary to
the evidence, resulting from ignorance, fear,
or any other cause, it is his privilege to set
aside their verdict and order a new trial.   I
can by no means agree with the finding of the
jury that the Aurora had failed to prove that
they did not stake their ground by the 8th of
August, 1864.   If jury after jury were to find
such a verdict it would not be permitted to
stand.   There is no miner on the creek who
could  have established  the staking of  his
ground so well as the Aurora Company have
done.   The stakes are now standing there.   I
went on the ground myself and saw thorn a
few days before the hearing of the case came
on, in order to satisfy myself.   I have not the
slightest doubt that the stakes were put in on
the 8th  of August.     Edwards, Hilton.,and
Dewdney all are positive of this, and there is
not a scrap of evidence to rebut them, unless
it is that of two men who went on the ground
for the purpose of jumping it.   When men go
to jump ground they do not s«e their enemies'
stakes.   It is not of much importance whether
the stakes were there on the 8th of August
or not.     I do not think there was a man or
company on the whole hillside in 1864 that
did not hear of thc Borealis and Aurora Co.'s
case and thc order then issued.   The Davis
Company knew the Aurora Company held a
bill claim.   That company had no right to
put their stakes there whether the Aurora
Company had staked or not.   I never heard
a clearer case than tbe present.

Mr. P. Kilroy was next called for, who
most eloquently delivered himself thus: Gentlemen and fellow citizens—The immediate
necessity of defending 'his city against an
attack from the Fenians cannot for one
moment be questioned, and also thc fortifying
of thc banks of the Columbia river is another
question of the utmost importance ; for if tbe
Fenians ever get possession of the Okenagan
and Kamloops sections of this colony, then
comes the tug of war. Why, gentlemen,
there won't be a head of horned stock left,
and beef cannot be got at any price ; for one
Fenian will demolish more beef in one day
than any four white men in the colony, particularly when they purchase on Fenian bonds.
Then, my sons of glory, hear my story—defend the stock, and prepare for action, in
order to be ready, if an emergency should
require our services on the battle field.
After a lengthy discussion respecting the
best possible means of defending Lytton City
and the north-east key of thc colony, in case
the invaders came up the Columbia river,
cross thc Okenagan and arrive here via
Nicholas creek and the Nicomein, a resolution
was proposed by Mr. W. McWlia, secondod
by Mr. B. Patterson, and
Resolved,—That a committee, consisting of
tho chairman and member of this district, and
Mr. B. Patterson, be appointed to draft a
memorial to his Honor thc officer administrating the Government, and to be signed by the
chairman of thc meeting, asking him to send
up to Lytton City arms und ammunition sufficient for its defence, also asking him to ap
ply to the Home Government for a force of
soldiers to act as a permanent guard to Lyt
ton city and thc colony.
After a vote of thanks to the chairman, the
meeting adjourned sine die.

stage out from Yale and had it in waiting, to
convey us from that point to thc end of our
journey.     Our trip was, therefore, from beginning to end,  made comfortable, pleasant
and speedy.    We  think the people thould
support a lino of stages that carries passengers for $18, in opposition to a monopoly line
that, when it had the power in the beginning
of the season,  before Davis' line went on,
extolled §40! from tho helpless traveler for
the  same  trip.    We notice that statements
are  put forward   in  th« press, by the Rival
Line   in the names of certain parties against
Davis' line.    We feel certain that such effusions proceed from envy, hatred ar.d malice,
borne to Davis on account of his suceesB ia
obtaining such extensive patronage from thc
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, tho 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 Havana's Ferry
in the early part of the season, as well as oil
tho down   trip to-day, and we can testify to
the line being well conducted both ways.
As it is for the 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 in 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 and comfort.
There are no touters 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.

STATE OF THE COLONIES—CHEAP GOVERNMENT WANTED.
The House of Assembly of Vancouver Island has agreed upon an address to the Queen
on the state of these colonies. The document
is a lengthy one, and tha views which it
enunciates are both comprehensive and statesman like. We think there are few persons in
either colony who will not endorse the main
features of the address, and especially so as
regards thc retrenchment scheme, which will
find an echo throughout the whole country.
Tbe great panacea for the evils under which
these colonies groan is cheap government,
and until that point is conceded there will not
be a sign of improvement visible. Once start
with our establishments on a proper basis, and
the country will soon grow into importance
and attract population that will bring back
prosperity which the extravagance and
A TRAIL FROM CARIBOO TO BIG BEND.
A contemporary calls the attention of th*
Government to the desirability of making a
trial from Cariboo through the Horsefly valley
to the Big Bend mines. There can be do
question whatever that such a work would be
of the greatest possible utility in opening up
a fine region of country, both for pastoral
and mineral purposes. Hitherto the great
obstacle to the thorough prospecting of the
gold bearing range has been the difficulty of
getting animals with provisions into the interior. The donsity of the woods in every
direction has made the work of prospecting
this country not only one of the most arduous
but also most tedious nature. In Idaho and
Montana, miners can go forth with horseB to
every part to prospect, the country being
quite open and easy of access. To this fact
is to be attributed the vast amount of expio
ration that has taken place in those territories
and the development of the mines there that
has followed. It is impossible to pass through
the gold bearing region of this colony with
horses unless a trail is cut for the purpose,
and the very small area comparatively of the
"upper country" that has been explored is
owing simply to this one fact alone. By intersecting the country with trails constructed at
a very trifling expense the Government would
be doing more for its development than bv
any other means that we are aware of.

had legislation of the Government for the past
two years has banished from our shores. The
Civil List which the Assembly has suggested
is ample for all the requirements of the country for some years to come. The salary of
£2000 set down for the Governor is fully as
much as thc colonies united can afford, and
when wc consider the population—which is
not ten thousand in the aggregate of white
men—is more than the country can bear.
Wa are surprised to find a newspaper in Victoria—even that hybrid production which the
city now possesses—advocating a higher
stlary for the head of the Executive than the
•urn suggested in the Assembly's Civil List.
We are told by the organ in question that tbe
amount offered is only " equal to that paid
the Governor of St. Helena, an island 21 miles
in circumference," and that it is £3000 less
than the sum paid each of the Governors of
Gibraltar, Malta and Hongkong. If Her
Majesty's Goyernment would only treat these
colonies on tho same principle that they do
St. Helena, Gibraltar and Malta, that is, to
pay the Civil List out of tha Imperial Exchequer, the people here would not object to
the Governor getting £10,000 a year. Rut
we are not treated so indulgently—very far
from it indeed. The youngest and feeblest of
all Her Majesty's possessions these colonial
have been cast adrift to sink or swim without
the fostering cars of that same mother which
has dona so much and spent so much on other
parts that had not half the claim these struggling colonics have upon her bounty. It is
absurd to attempt to draw any parallel between this country aod colonies like New
Zealand with 230,000, and Ceylon with 1,800,-
000 inhabitants. £4,500 a year to the Governor of New Zetland is far kss in proportiou
to tbe population and the work which he has
to perform the:: £1000 would be for the Governor here. According to tbe combined paper,
"an experienced man" cannot be found to
govern these colonics for flO.OOO a year.
What childish ignorance such a remark implies on tha part of the writer. Are these
colonies with their, say, ten thousand people,
of more importance than Prince Edward's
Island with its 80*000 inhabitants, and the
Governor of which only gets £1,500, or Newfoundland with its 120,000 people, and the
Governor of which has only £2000, or Western
Australia with an area of 1,000,000 square
miles of territory and population of upward*
There
are hundreds of miners in the Cariboo dis
trict who would willingly spend a month or
two every summer in prospecting were they
able to titkc animals with them to pack their
provisions to distant parts of the country,
and there arc few successful men in the mines
who would not willingly contribute towards
exploring the land from the strong faith which
they entertain in its abundant richness in mineral deposits. Now that the mining candle ha*
been lighted at both ends of the gold bearing
range—Cariboo and Big Bend—the flame wM
continue to grow and extend until it meets, if
the Government will only do its duty in giving
the miners facilities for getting from one point
to the other. It must not be understood that
we are appealing for the formation of expensive lines of waggon roads or even trails at
sixty thousand dollars, like that huge blunder
to Kootenay. The country dees not want
anything of the kind. All that is required is
the construction of the rudest description of
trails, in a great many places tho simple
" blaze" being quite sufficient. We urge this
subject upon the attention of the Govern
ment in the strongest terms, believing that it
is of paramount importance at present to the
development of the country's resources. The
work must be done some time, and the sooner
it is commenced the better it will be for the people of ihe country. The exploration of the district Mr. Moberly and bis party are engaged on
is of inferior importance to that from Cariboo
to Big Bend, and could be well postponed for
the present season at least, in view of what is
still more pressing to be done before this
season is out. We cannot do better than
conclude this article with the following apposite remarks on this subject from tbe Cariboo Sentinel:
" In connection with this subject we would
call the attention of Government to the necessity for opening up a trail from here, by way
of the Horsefly country, to Big Bend. From
all we can gather on this subject the country
presents but few obstacles for its formation,
and during the summer season excellent feed
for animals can be found throughout the
whole route; thc distance we need hardly
say is not more than half of that by the
present waggon road via Cache Creok, and
vastly superior for pack trains or pedestrians.
The auvantages of such a trail are easily
understood. Miners could travel from one
place to the other, as business or inclination
called tbem, at small expense ; prices of p'0
visions would be more equalized, as merchants
in the event ol excessive supplies at Big Bend

pie of the country—both colonies—now unite
upon a retrenchment polxy of the narrowest
kind, and none other will find acceptance for
a long time to come. If Her Majesty's Government want a Civil List of proportions
higher than that laid down by the Vancouver
Assembly, Mr. Card well must arrange with
the pliant Mr. Gladstone to contribute the
difference from the Imperial Exchequer. We
want ch-sap oovkbkmmt, it is the great desideratum now, aod we liver have it, and—
•wfllbeve.tf
least, that vast tract of gold bearing country
lying between these two points would be
opened up so as to admit of its being
thoroughly explored.
" The expense attending the construction
of such a trail would be very trifling, as the
obstacles are few and a considerable portion
of the country is already in good traveling
condition. We earnestly commend the scheme
to the consideration of the proper authorities,
and firmly believe that with so important a
link between these mining districts a great
step in the right direction will be echieted."

CARIBOO MINING NEWS.
Telegraphic Summary.
What Next?—After four   years  of the
fiercest political opposition the organs of the
Free Port and Tariff parties in Victoria—the
Colonist and Chronicle—have   united their
fortunes and are now issued as one paper
under tho auspices of the former proprietors
of the Chronicle and the principal member of
the late firm connected with the Colonist.
What principles will be advocated by the new
paper, seeing that it is under the management of a rabid protectionate and an avowed
free-trader, remains for the future to develop,
but if we were to hazard an opinion at all, it
would be that an attempt will be made to give
satisfaction to all parties. Will the public
place buy confidence in such a hybrid concern ? That Is the momentous question to the
proprietors which time will have to solve, and
we need scarcely say that unless tbe community havo full faith and confidence in the
management of a public journal the best laid
scluMties in connection with it c*u have only
a disastrous termination. Such an immoral
alliance as that which has taken place in this
case, based as it is on the most shameful aban
doitment of all principle en.tbe-part of some of
those concerned cannot be looked noon with
satisfaction by any party—whether Free-trade
or Protect on. Strange events, truly, havt
happened in Victoria of late, but nothing
half so strange ns the union of two parties so
opposed to each other heretofore on the
highest principles of public policy, and that
union effected ostensibly for a common object.
What will happen next—and next? Vieions
of a new and independent paper in Victoria
crowd upon us.
Masokic.—The Freemasons of Victoria had
a gala day on Monday last, consequent on the
dedication of their new and beautiful tempi?.
The brethren marched in procession decorated in the regalia of the order to church,
where the chaplain of the district, tbe Rev.
Mr. Sorutnerville, preached ac eloquent and
appropriate sermon, which was listened to
wiih rapt attention by a crowded audience
At the termination of the church service the
members of the order re-formed and proceeded
to tlio new hall, which is situated in Government street, and consecrated the building in
due and ancient form. In the afternoon a
large assemblage of the brethren dined together and spent a most fraternal and plc.s mi
evening. Representatives of lodges from
British Columbia and the Sound were present
at the proceedings. Query—Why ia Yale
without a Masonic lodge?
Tu« Cherrt Crxxk Siltkr Mining Company*.—This company opened their books on
Saturday last, in this town, for the sale of
shares, and in the course of a few hours disposed of sixty-three shares at $15 each, paid
up. Skilled workmen have b.-en engaged by
the company, and the development of thc
mine will be proceeded with in the most
vigorous manner during the present summer.
The confidence felt in the mine turning out
well is very great. If we can only get a few
quartz companies to work in this colony we
will not long suffer from want of population,
as there is little deubt felt tliat the country
abounds in the finest quartz lend''.
Thi Sharp Practice Cask.—At the request
of some of the most respectable merchants of
this town we called attention to the unwarrantable conduct of the toll-keeper at the
Alexandra Bridge in over charging the public
with toll. Since the publication of the article,
wc have received an insolent letter from the
individual in question which we are charitable
enough to hope was written without consideration, and whilst the writer was smarting
under the merited exposure of his illegal acts.
We hope that Mr. Trutch will put an end to
the practice complained of, and that we shall
hear no more in future of toll being over
charged.     	
Confimnck.—Mr.  G.  B. Wright,   whose
knowledge of this country is second to no
other person in it, arrived by the last steamer
from California with an immense stock of
merchandise. It is his intention to resume
trading, from which his other engagements
had compelled him to separate himself for
two years past. Mr. Wright's embarking
again in commercial pursuits manifests strong
faith in the country, and we trust his spirited
enterprise will meet with an ample reward.
Till Bio Bind Minks.—There is no news of
importance from these mines. Pack trains
were employed in taking goods into the mines
from Seymour.
The Sentinel of the U5th has the following
Williams Oreek.
The Simmea Company are raising a shaft
from their drain and will be washing by thc
end of the week.   Wide West Company are
working from two. shafts and making about
wages.   The Happy go Lucky Company have
just struck pay.   Forward Company are finding their pay on high rock ; they expect to do
well when  they get  50 feet further back.
McLaren Company are still taking out good
pay.    Well Mary Ann are now in nearly 400
feet and begin to find a little fine gold.   The
Burns Tunnel Company are still hydraulicing
nnd make but, little progress owing'to the hard
nature of the ground.   Foster Campbell Company have got their wheel started and are
bailing out their shaft.   Rappahannock Company are blasting through rim rock, had found
good prospects.    Aurora and Davis Companys
are working the disputed ground in company;
the  former washed up yesterday 129 ounces
and the latter 159 ounceB.   The Watson Company erecting a new wheel and hoisting gear.
Wake up Jake have fin'shed blasting the bot
torn of shaft, will commence drifting to-morrow.   The Camp Company washed up for the
week about 60 ounces.    The Morning Star
Company  had for the  pa.'t week about 40
ounces.   Cariboo Company have just commenced drifting down stream to connect with
the Lillooet, who are running the Bed Rock
Drain.    Lillooet Company are now within 140
feet ef thc Cariboo drift, washed up on Saturday 11 ounces.   The Caledonia, Never Sweat
and Moffat Companies are not doing much at
present.   Last Chance are making about 20
ounces a day from the shaft.   Tinker Company  are   making wages.     Raby  Company
washed up for week about 100 ounces.  Adams
Company took out for week 90 ounces.  With
one or two exceptions the claims below Cam-
eronton have not got inte working order yet.
Grouse Oreek.
The prospects of this creek are becoming
more encouraging every day, and if tbe rich
strikes which are reported, continue to be
made, we anticipate a large accession to the
numbers at present on that creek. Almost
every claim that has been prospected is turn
ing out well, and there is no doubt that the
creek will pay lor a considerable distance
above and below where claims are at present
located. The Short Bend Company, on Thursday last, got as hifrh as $80 to the pan, and
on Friday, $18. They washed up 75 ounces
on Saturday, being the result of three hours
labor of one man picking. The gold is very
coarse, some of the pieces weighing from $30
to $40. The French Company, next adjoining
the Discovery claim, got 7 ounces and 12 dollars to the pan of dirt on Friday last. The
Ne'er-do-weel Company got a prospect of $68
to one pan ot dirt last week; they washed up
yesterday 60 ounces for the two pievious days.
We saw one piece which weighed 2% ounces,
and another 2, taken out of this claim.
Antler Oreek.
There are about 120 Chinamen engaged in
mining on this creek.  A good many are hired
by white men to work on their claims.   Tbe
Ross and Neil Companies are doing well.
Mukets.
Prices continue as at former quotations with
the exception of nails and sugar, which retail
at 37 cents per pound.
Two Chinamen were arrested at Barkerville
on a charge of robbing sluice boxes on L>whee
Creek, on Saturday night last.
Tbe steamer only makes one trip this week
from Soda Creek.
Weather warm but pleasant. Nothing of
importance occurring.
Singular Coincidkxck.—Two newspapers,
conducted by two brothers in different towns
in the neighboring colony, eame to grief in
the same week lately. The British Colonist
at Victoria, and the Gazette at Nanaimo—the
former edited by Leonard and the latter by
Joseph McClure—succumbed to adverse circumstances almost on the same day. The
McClures are certainly an unlucky family.
The Colonist is tho third paper killed by Leonard McClure in these colonies, vie, the New
Westminster Gazette, the Victoria Prow, and
finally tho oldest established, and when he
took hold of it, the most prosperous journal
in this country, thc British Colonist. It is
time, we think, that Mr. Leonard McClure re-
signedjournalism. If Mr. McClure had confined
himself to murdering newspapers, the evil
effects of his presence in these colonies might
havo been gut over, but to his demagoguism
in Victoria and false representations at the
Colonial Office in London, are to be traced
the origin of the disasters which have fallen
upon the country with such blighting effects.
J-yYale road tolls for the month ending
dOth of June amounted to $5,836 21; and
for the week ending same date, $1,405 69,
an Francisco, June 23.—Tho steamer
Oregon, 10 days lrom Point Isabella, on the
Colorado river, arrived to-day on her downward trip. Off the Cataiina Island* she struck
the British bark Kent, from Carmen Island,
loaded with salt for Portland, sinking her.
The Golden City, which left Panama on the
evening of the 9th, where she connected with
the steamer from New York on the 1st, arrived early this morning, b'ouih American
news unimportant. No new military movements. Busim ss was improving iu Valparaiso.
No further molestation feared from the Spanish it ft. A grand banquet wss given in
honor of the victory of the Peruvians over
the Spanish invaders. No less than 1000 gentlemen Sat down to dinner. The principal
European nations and tue Ui.ited States were
represented.
A calamity, causing the death of 100 persons, occurred at Valparaiso on the 20th May,
in sinking a submarine battery which was
designed as a torpedo. It was towed in 3<•
fathoms of water for the purpose of experimenting.   That was the last seen of it.
The election of President of the State ol
Panama took place June 2d, aad resulted in
the election of Gen. Vincente, the popular
dignitary, who received every vote th*t was
cast.
The last steamer from Peru brought about
180 Spaniards, who had been compelled to
leave the country under a decree of Government.
The Panama Herald says the United States'
war ship Maringo is now at Gua\mas for the
purpose of enforcing the demands of the
American Government.
Capi. James G. Baker, an old resident ol
this city, and a ship Ciptain, well known
throughout the Pacific Coast, died on board
the steamer Oregon, May 13th, and was buried
at sea.
Legal Tenders remain at 71@72, with small
sales.
San Francisco, June 24.—The eastern line
is still out of order beyond Laramie.
The steamer Geo. S. Wright, belonging to
the Russian Telegraph Expedition, sailed this
morning for Petropaulowski, with Col. Bulkley
and suite.
Lieut -Col. Pollock and command, 300 men,
from Fort Goodwin, where they were not
murdered, returned to Son Francisco by the
Oregon,, yesterday,, ^nd will be mustered oui
next week.
O. M. Perkins, commission merchant, doing
business at 308 Battery street, committed
suicide this morning by shooting himself with
a revolver.
San Fra::eisco, June 26.—Eastern line still
silent beyond Laramie. The Committee ot
Arrangements for the Fourth of July celebration gives an encouraging report. They expect to get a ci lebration that will do honor to
tbe city and all who participate in it.
The British bark Norseman arrived yesterday from Liverpool in 115 days. This is the
shortest trip made between the two ports in
several years.
A resolution was unanimously adopted by
the Board of Council that the. freedom of the
city be tendered John Rodgers and officers o.
ihe war steamer Vanderbilt and monitor Mon-
adnook.
1 be following was received last night by
telegraph:
Los Angelos, January 25.—From Mr. EngV,
who just arrived from Hardy's Landing, Co •
orado river, we learn that Mnaes Little, of .San
Francisco, was killed at the Macedonia mine.
The murder was committed with an axe. Tin
stroke cleft his head in twain. The other employees were absent at the time. It is said
that I.tdians were the murderers. We also
learn of the murder of another man by Indians near Mail Springs, which took place a lew
days previous. It seems the Indians arc
actively on the war path. They have approached within ten miles of our city aud
murdered two other men, McOuirs and
McGee.

RESOURCES AND ADVANTAGES OF
VANCOUVER ISLAND AND BRITISH
COLUMBIA.
A correspondent of the Toronto Globe, in
writing of tho resources of these colonics,
makes the following romarks:
"What relation shall we bear to all this
growth of the Pacific? This is the question
of questions, not only for us, but for your
statesmen also. I am bound to declare my
conviction that if these colonies are properly
managed, wo shall, in time, acquire the most
commanding position of all. I know it will
seem like foolishness to many to suppose that
we can even hope to rival San Francisco or
California, yet I think it possible, and I will
give my reasons why.
" We hare-eoat-and iron—great elements
of England's power and wealth—which California has not; we have fishories and lumber
inexhaustible, which California has not; we
can build ships, which California cannot, except by paying a freight on lumber which
doubles the cost; we have every reason to
believe that our gold, silver, copper, and other
mineral wealth is as great as was ever possessed by California, and it is not, in scarcely
any degree, exhausted.    We have a good agricultural and an admirable pastoral country—
not such as will vie with California, but will,
:it  least, make  us independent.    California
excels in grapes and peaches, but we have the
best apples and plums.
"Again, in possessing coal, iron and lumber, at our hands,  we have  the means of
establishing  manufactures here, and in this
fact there is ground for great expectations for
these colonies.     Thus when we become the
chief seat of manufactures for tho Pacific,
that the vast advantage of our  temperate
climate will be demonstrated.   In the usual
order of things  bulky articles will first be
made,  such as iron and brass castings and
machinery, agricultural implements, waggons,
carriages,  household  furniture, leather, etc.
We have an  excellent sheep country.   At
this moment there could scarcely be a better
business than a blanket factory here, wool
costing two-thirds of the price with you and
blankets fifty per cent, higher, and the Indian
consumption enormous.    At present a vital
objection to manufactures here is the high
rate of wages, but in time this will correct,
itself."
