YALE,  MONDAY,   SEPTEMBER 17,  1866.
No. 24
IMMIGRATION.
It is noiv three years since the Legislature
appropriated a sum of money to  assist in
promoting the immigration of families, who
would settle down to agricultural pursuits in
this colony, yet up to the present time not an
effort has been put forth by the Government
to carry out the project.    We cannot understand the apathy displayed by the Executive
on a subject of such momentous importance
to the welfare and prosperity of the country.
There are  plenty  of families in the United
Kingdom who would gladly avail themselves
of an offer to come here to settle on the land;
and well they might, as there is no country
that we are acquainted with that offers more
solid inducements,  or holds out higher rewards to the iiidiiHtriousXtiller of the soil than
this one.    It has been demonstrated by experience that the land of this colony will produce crops of all kinds, of surpassing quality
and great productiveness.    Prices of agricultural produce  here are  higher than in any
other colony, or State of the Union, and land
can be had on better terms than even in the
United States. _ With a climate net inferior i
to Canada and the Western States, why should
we not endeavor to  attract an agricultural
population, numerous enough to cultivate sufficient  grain and  other  productions   of the
•oil to supply the  local demand?     We are
aware  that the want of flouring mills in the
interior has heretofore  been a serious drawback to tho settlement of the country, but the
enterprise  of individuals  has   removed  this
obstacle,   and  there is now no reason why
every pound of flour consumed in the colony
hereafter,  may not be produced from home
grown wheat.    We do not desire to stimulate
a   Urge  immigration  at  present.     What is
wanted   is  the  settlement of a few families
yearly   in  the   various   districts,   to   form a
nucleus,   around  which   others  would   soon
cluster  of their  own   accord.     What is required,   however,   before any  movement is
made, is to have information prepared of the
most  reliable   kind, to  place  beforo families
desirous of immigrating,   regarding  the advantages and resources of the  country, the
nature of the soil, the crops that have been
already successfully raised, their yield and the
Driees realized for three or four years past.
Besides, maps should be available  showiuj;
the  lands  open  to pre-emption,  and a oade
sibly see what could be the meaning of the
backwardness of the candidates in not coming
forward at once, like men, to let the meeting
know what were their political, views ; that if
he (Mr. Richards) wcre in the field, it would
not take him long to screw his courage to the
sticking point. lie advised the candidates to
come forward at once and not keep the meeting waiting. (Loud cheering for Frank Richards.) After order was restored, Mr. Robson
came forward and addressed the meeting in a
lengthy and characteristic speech on the
various topics contained in his published address.
Dr. Black, the sceond candidate, next addressed the meeting in a forcible and eloquent
speech. The Doctor commented very strongly,
and with telling effect, upon an article published in the British Columbian respecting his
former political career, and ably defended
himself from the attacks of his opponent.
The meeting was composed of the most
respectable people of the capital, and good
order wss maintained, considering that a
fierce political contest was in progress. The
supporters of the respective candidates were
about equal, and the chairman could not decide which had the majority.
After a vote of thanks to the chairman for
tho able manner in which he conducted thc
meeting, thc assemblage adjourned.

localities for settlement. Everything which |** U •
an immigrant should know ought to be made
plain, and no one induced to come without
being fully informed beforehand what the immigrant would hav.j to contend with in building up a home for himself and family in this
country. If our Lauds and Works Department had been employed in collecting information of the kind required by immigrants,
instead of frittering away its time on abortive
explorations through the mountains, it would
hare been of some advantage te the country.
This is a subject that should claim the earnest
attention of the Government, and steps should
be taken by tlie Surveyor-General to collect
truthful information, without which nothing
can be dene to promote or induce immigrants
to come amongst us.
ELECTION   MEBTING   AT   NEW  WESTMINSTER.
A meeting of the electors of the district
was held in the drill shed of New Westminster, on the evening of the 8th instant, for
the purpose of affording the candidates an
opportunity of expressing their views on
public questions.
The meeting was called to order at 8 p. m ,
Capt. Cooper, President. Tho chairman
opened the meeting in a few well-timed remarks respecting the purpose for which it
was called. The respective candidates were
loudly called for by their partisans. Considerable excitement prevailed with regard to
who should first address the meeting. Both

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 the Grand Trunk Road through the
colonv 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 civ lizing benefits of education,
as well as instruction in cultivating thc soil
on which they will be settled. We have a
heavy debt, in my opinion, to pay the red
man of our extensive territory for past neglect
and want of sympathy for his degraded
condition.
I urn in favor of thc 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  u standard  of!
efficiency should be set up for teachers, and a
Board of Examiners appointed to test tli*»ir i
proficiency in knowledge.   By elevating tho!
character of our public schools wc 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 the fullest,  freest and fairest competition, with
guarantee that all parties tendering will have
justice strictly meted out to them.
As the country is dependent to a gror.fc extent for its general prosperity ou t. mines, I
everything should be done to further tlioir
opening. I am in favor of such modifies-i
tions in the mining laws as will tend to eradicate the evils of litigation, and give that fixed:
security to the investors of capital that will j
conduce to the development of the vasti
mineral wealth of tho colony.
I am an advocate of protection to home
industry,   and  if returned  will  endeavor to
have the tariff amended so as to give full protection to our farming interests and encourage
local manufactures in the country.    I believeI
that a high duty on cattle and sheep imported1
from abroad would be calculated to encourage;
the settlement of a large tract of the pastoral
lands of the colony now lying wasto and un

Agiucuvi'uhal Statistics.—We would call
the  attention  of  the   Administrator  of the
Government to the advantages arising from
having the agricultural statistics of the colony
taken this fall. The Police Constables in the
several districts, who are all intelligent and
reliabio men, could act as enumerators, and
thc cost of compiling valuable data for future
service would therefore only be nominal.
The area of land under cultivation, the different kinds of crops and their yield, with the
stock of cattle, etc., on the respective farms,
would form most interesting statistics and be
an invaluable guide for future reference. A
return of a similar nature for the past throe
years might also be obtained at the ssme
time, and the enumerators might be
called on to state what proportion the occupied land in their localities forms to the un-
occupied, with observations on the adaptability of tho waste land for settlement and
cultivation. We would earnestly impress
upon the Executive the necessity of procuring
these returns this vear.
CARIBOO.
Williams Creek.
The eontinuanco of the dry weather is very
hurtful to the mining interests of this creek,
and has the effect of making business dull
and money scarce. It is truly lamentable to
see so many men going about idle at this
season of tho year, when thoy might be
taking out good pay frem their claims if they
only had a little water. The few companies
who , have been enabled to work have been
doing extremely well. Bradley-Nicolson
comp*ny washed out for tho week 70 ounces;
Tontine company yielded for the week 79.1
ounces; Foster-Campbell company have at
last goc on big pay, during the past'week they
washed up $3000 out of three sets of timbers;
the ground, it is supposed, will average about
50 ounces to the set of timbers. Cariboo
company washed out for week 50 ounces;
Camp company washed out for week about 60
ounces ; Caledonia company washed out for
last woek over 100 ounces; Dead Broko company yielded 55 ounces for the week.
The United oompany, in Conklins gulch,
took out for tho week 131 ounces.

Traveling Scotciimin.—Scottish songs are
known and appreciated in every quarter of
the globe. The Scot and the snipe (says Bui
wer Lytton) aro the two animals most tenacious of life ; they exist anywhere, and under
any conditions. We cannot vouch for the
snipe, but we can certify that wc have never
visited any place, however remote or uninviting, without finding Scotchmen there; and
wherever Scotchmen go they carry with them
tho songs of their native land. We have
listened to hundreds of our Scottish soldiers
singing "Scots wha hae" on the eve of a
battle; it was only the other night that wc
were kept awake till daybreak by a party
Ringing a succession of national songs in a
neighboring tent, while the sentry went his
solitary round, and the signal fire of the
Maori might be seen in the distance. The
plaintive strains of the "Banks and braes
of bonnie Doou" had a singular effect when
sung on the banks of the AVaikato, and awoke
many reminiscences of Scottish song which
may not be without interest to our readers.
ty A Salt Lake paper chronicles the
receut death of a Mormon bishop. The
obituary notice winds up in the following
manner:—He was thirty-seven years of age,
and leaves an interesting family of eleven
wives and forty-four small children to mourn
their irreparable loss. Happily it is only a
limited liability affair, and this is a new example of the blessings of that institution of
our modern days.
