LETTER FROM THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.
September 18, 1866.
Sia,—When you reeeive this letter, don't
suppose for one moment, that it is from one
single individual, but consider it as coming
from hundreds, aud that the the sentiment it
contains is the voice of the population of
British Columbia, including all nationalities.
Now that the question of Union is about to
be finally settled, to the great annoyance of
the New Westminster coips politic, the next
thinj they are crying out about is the capital,
which they want to be fixed in their city,
We wonder what they will next want? for
they never will be satisfied. Give them the
capital, excuse them from all taxation, from
all customs, or any other dues that is at present enforeed upon them, and pile the whole
support of tlie Government and its different
establishments on the people of this upper
country, and yet they will not be satisfied.
It is a matter of impossibility to  satisfy an
agitating clique of politicians, who look upon
the men who are the soul of this colony as so I Secretary  of State, as the place
many invaders who robbing them of their
legitimate rights; men who, through untold
suffering and privation, by whose discoveries
it has been shown to the world that British
Columbia, as a gold producing country, is
second to none as yet discovered.
It ia actually astonishing to notice with
what presumption the Columbian has called
upon the Secretary of State to take under
consideration the propriety of fixing the
capital at New Westminster, and that Mr.
Seymour and Col. Moody's representations to
that effect will not be disregarded, I have
reason to believe. Well, we certainly must
feel proud of at least one of our representatives, the Major General Moody, who takes
upon himself an uncalled for responsibility.
We would return thanks to the General for
his disinterested kindness towards us, but for
the fact that your contemporary of the British Columbian gives him "an extra puff by
calling him his "esteemed friend." It is
astonishing how suddenly the General has
risen in the Columbian's estimation. Yesterday there was none so poor in New Westminster as to do the Msjor General reverence,
to-day his word would stand against the
colony, therefore his capital representations
to the'Secretary of State cannot be overlooked,
but will be entitled to the gravest consideration, otherwise  all the General's New West-
expect. If we are to have political peace and
content, let the capital be fixed at Victoria,
or anywhere from where it is; but, in order
to deal justly with Victoria and New Westminster, we would suggest to the Secretary
of State the wise and beneficial policy of
picking upon some central point on the main
land for the capital, and end all further disputes.between these two hostile cities, respecting the seat of Government.
The natural channels of tho highway of
British Columbia to all her different mining
and agricultural localities, is thc valleys of
the Fraser and Thompson rivers, these two
routes command all the travel and transit of
merchandise to all parts of the colony; the
junction of these two routes il Lytton City,
where the Thompson empties into the Fraser,
situated exactly 57 miles from Yale, the head
of navigation on the lower Fraser. The
above named Lytton City, from its many ad
vantages as being situated at the junction of
the two great highways of the colony, is the
place that wc, thc people of British Columbia,
would most respectfully recommend to the
to fix the

capital. It is impossible for us to say what
an impetus it would give to all branches of
industry in this upper country, which at
present looks in so sickly a condition, (although
our mining prospects look well), and if such
a step was once taken by the Home Government, it would inspire the people with renewed spirit and energy of purpose to put
their shoulders to the wheel, cultivate and
improve the land and those farms which have
been abandoned for want of confidence in the
country; and should the Secretary of State
be induced to agree with us in fixing thc
capital at Lytton City, he will create more
content and satisfaction throughout the colony
than he has any conception of, and will give
rise to a stronger demonstration of happy rejoicing than has ever been witnessed in this
colony since its first settlement. Lytton is
not only surrounded but intimately connected
by her waggon roads with all tho agricultural
resources of all this upper country, so that
the establishing of the seat of Government
at that place would have a stronger tendency
to settle up the colony, increase her population, and encourage all branches of industry,
than all the mines that may be discovered for
years to come. We want population—permanent settlers—and the day will soon arrive
when wc shall no longer be depending upon
foreign produce for our pound of bread.    It

for indeed New Westminster is completely courage industry and populate the colony, let
cut off from us in the winter season, the river
being frozen up for several months and not
being passable without the greatest risk of
life, while all tho country between Yale and
Cariboo is open for safe travel all the year on
a good road. The line of waggon road commences at Yale, runs up through thc valley of
the Fraser river as far as Lyttou City, or the
forks, where it then turns up the valley of the
Thompson, crossing it 23 miles from Lytton,
and then runs in a. northerly direction until it
strikea Richfield in the Cariboo country—its
terminui—taking in on its route all the principal towns in the mineral and agricultural
•ections of the colony, and iu communication
with each other at all seasons.
The following remarks of your contemporary is amusing, when he says: " Tho very
heart and soul of the grievances was the inconvenience and injustice of having our
Government so far removed from tlie peoplo,
and it was not until that grievance was redressed that the colony enjoyed any measure
of political peace and content."
Now, in commenting upon the above re-
narks, I must certainly and emphatically
ay, and which is also a wall established fact,
hat New Westminster is as far from the peo
the stat of Government be fixed at Lytton
City. We will liberally, and with much pleasure, endorse any appropriation that may be
deemed sufficient by our Legislative Council
for all buildings, improvements, etc., required.

A  correspondent  of  the
writing from Helena, July
DlSCOURAOINO,
Trinitv Journal,
27th, furnishes the following gloomy account
of matters and things in Montana :
On the day after my arrival on Elk creek a
friend asked me to tako a look at the surrounding country with him, saying at the same
time that the whole country was a "d—d
bilk." I followed him three weeks and have
come to the same conclusion. There is a fair
prospect that hundreds who are here will
freeze or starve to death before next May.

John Clark, Henry nnd Sev. Jacobs, Lobdell,

some working at their trades, and all agree
in the opinion that Montana is a humbug.
Donnolly is the only one of the number who
has prospered. * * Thousands are leaving
for the States, and I find but few who are
ile of this colony as Victoria is, with the ex- willing to winter hero.   Wormall saya East-

UNION.
There seems te be little doubt that Union
of these colonies has been carried into effect,
or soon will be, under the Act passed in the
last session of the British Parliament. It
would appear that the Bill was amended by
Lord Derby's Government so as to render
any further resolutions of the local legislatures unnecessary, and making Union compulsory.   Believing,  as we honestly do, that
blame to a great extent for leaving Governor
Seymour in  the  dark regarding their principles,  and  allowing him to be carried away
hy   the   misrepresentations   of  the   British
Columbian.   Had the people taken a course
similar to that adopted at the present general
election, two  years ago, Mr. Seymour would
have gone home with very different ideas to
those which he entertained and gave expression to in his foolish dispatches to the Secretary  of State.     Although   the  country  has
been reduced to a very depressed state by
Governmental misrule, yet we do not despair
of seeing   it   rise   up   again   with  renewed
strength,  after the inauguration of an enlightened and liberal policy.    Tbe people of
this colony at the present elections are giving
an effective contradiction to the misrepresen
tations of the British Columbian  regarding
their opinions on public questions, and there
of that mischevious
We will iake it as|P»P«1' being in a position  hereafter to mis
lead  public  men  like Governor Seymour oh
the great issues of the day.    Tho feelings of
the people of the interior of the colony have
been so alienated from New Westminster by
the  writings of  Mr.  John  Robson,  in the
Columbian, that no soouer does a gentleman
from the capital go into the interior to seek
election, than   he finds so distasteful has the
very   name   of New   Westminster  become
throughout the colony, that he has to retrace
his steps without even going through a formal
canvass.     A deadly hostility has also arisen
through similar means, to the capital being
retained at New Westminster, and the people
of the interior will never rest satisfied until
the seat of Government is removed.    These
facts are signs of the times that should not
be  mistaken,  and we trust they will be well
weighed by the people of Victoria.   There is

TO THE ELECTORS
OF   THE   DISTRICT   OF   YALE,    HOPE
AND LYTTON.
Gintlihxn,—Accept my grateful thanks
for the honor which ytu have conferred upon
me by unanimously returning me as your representative in the Legislative Council of this
colony. You have proved in an unmistakable
manner, by your votes at the election, that
tha principles which I have publicly advocated
in this colony are in unison with those held
by the people generally. Such a vindication
of my past career, coming as it does from the
most important constituency in the colony, is
deeply and truly gratifying to me. I trust
that in pursuing a moderate but firm course
of policy in the future I will retain the confidence which you have so unequivocally
manifested in me.
I am, gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
GEORGE WALLACE.
Yale, 31st September, 1866.
any Union at present is better than none for|not , particle of jealousy or hostility existing
dots colonies, we are rejoiced that no more j among the people of this colony outside of
time will be frittered away by our colonial New   Westminster  to Victoria     The people
hire do not forget how much they owe to the
public spirit and liberality of the Victoria
merchants; and we speak with a true knowledge of public opinion when we say that Victoria has nothing to fear from the inhabitants
of the interior or their representatives. They
will be very far, indeed, from joining in any
crusade against Victoria interests. We hope
there will be no hostile demonstration by the
citizens of Victoria on Governor Seymour
landing. Let the past be forgotttn, and let
all—Governor and people—unite in one grand
effort to save the country from the ruin and
decay that are everywhere fast becoming
visible. Thc only true policy at present is a
moderate, generous, forboaring one. It will
be necessary for local jealousies, party strifes
and personal bickerings to be laid aside, if we
are to make a push to strive and bring prosperity back again to the country. The pros-
sent is not a time when we can afford to go
on fighting amongst ourselves, when the people are flying away from our shores as if they
were panic struck. Wo must pursue a different eourse to what w<? have beau doing, if we
are to arrest the exodus that is going on.
Let us have Union as a step in the right
direction.
THE YALE ELECTION.
Assemblies in discussing resolutions, and thereby retarding, far more than expediting, the
settlement of thc question. We are satisfied
the people of this colony earnestly and
anxiously desire Union, and on a fair and
equitable basis '. asides. That under the new
Act our sister colony has not been justly
treated is not the fault of the people of this
colony. The inhabitants of Vaneouvei Island may rest assured that they will receive
every assistance hereafter from British Columbians, to have BUoh modifications introduced
into the new Constitution as will place both
colonies ou an equality in regard te representation. It must not be forgotten by the people that the new Constitution will not be permanent, and they may feel certain that under
any circumstances very little tisue will be allowed to elapse, before a far more liberal form
of Government will be granted. The addition
of so many popular representatives in the
sew Legislature is a step in the right direction, and progress once begun must go on
until this country is granted complete self-
government like other colonies. It is with
great satisfaction that we notice a change in
the public sentiment of Victoria regarding
the new measure. We are now impressed
with the belief that moderate counsels will
prevail with the thinking portion of the community. What at first seemed impossible
to find sevjpunee will be Uken with the
understanding that the combined efforts of
tli8 people of both colonies will be put forth
next year to obtain such amendments of the
Constitution as will Satisfy all. With regard
to Governor Seymour's hostility to Victoria
we are gsneroun enough to believe that the
moment he assumes the Government of the
United Colonics ail hit hostility will cease.
It is well known tliat in doing our public duty
by the country we have felt called on to stand
out in uncompromising opposition to Mr. Seymour's policy throughout.    So long as he con

In his memorable dispatch to Mr. Cardwell,
Governor Seymour stated that when he asked
those who represented to him that the people
of the  colony  wero  in favor  of Union for
evidence of tha fact, they failed to give him
any.   In the return of Mr. Wallace on strictly
Union principles, by an unanimous vote of the
most important constituency in the colony,
wo think that Governor Soymour will have
no longer to ask in vain for evidence of which
side thc people arc on. It would have been
well for the country if his Excellency had
paid more attention to those who truly represented the state of the public mind
throughout the colony, before his departure
for England. On Mr. Seymour's return he
will find that every one of the representatives
of the people will be pr.moin in rAvoa of
Union. How will his Excellency reconcile
such a state of things, with his statement to
Ur.  Cardwell  that  the   inhabitants   of   the
tinues to pursue a similar course of sectional     ,"      ff#re hoitj,   ,0 Union principles.   The
policy to that he adopted shortly after coening
here, wc will not cease to give him all the opposition in our power, but seeing the perilous
state of the eouuiry, we are disposed to give
him a fair chance to retrieve his past mismanagement by beginning his government,
on his return, on a truly national basis for
the benefit of the country generally. If his
Excellency possesses a particle of statesmanship, he will soon come to understand the
evils that have overtaken the country
through his misraansgement, and when he
has been thoroughly indoctrinated with the
sentiments of the people outside of New
Westminster, he will not fail, we believe, to
favor a policy of justice and fair dealing to
all parts of the United Colonies alike. The
people  ef lhe  country have  themselves to
electors of Yale have come out boldly and
mantully and made their principles known
aud felt. We hope all thc other constituencies
throughout the colony will follow the noble
example of Yale and Lytton district.

ELECTION FOR THE DISTRICT OP YALE,
HOPE AND LYTTON.
On Thursday last, the 20th instant, the
election of a member of the Legislative Council for this district took place. All opposition
having vanished, Mr. George Wallace had a
walk over. As a matter of form, however,
the polls were opened and a large number of
the electors came forward and recorded their
votes for Mr. Wallace. E. H. Sanders, Esq.,
J. P., presided in the Court House at Yale,
and acted as rocording officer. The following
was the state of the poll at the close ;
Yale, 89 votes.
Lytton, -   -   -   -   -54   do
Total,
143 votes.
CARIBOO.
The ConaT House Aoaim.—Scarcely a week
passes round that the want of a Court-room I
here is not very much felt. Neither suitors
to the Court, nor the public generally, have
any place to meet in town, and when the time
for tlie Assizes arrives, Judgo Begbie will have
to preside in the open air, for the magistrate's
ofiice is too small to afford accommodation
for the jurors, and there is not a vacant house
in town to be had for holding Court. It is
really too bad to have so much delay about a
Court nouse, when the expense of erecting
a wooden building would be so trifling.
Although representations without number
have bi-en made on the subject, and promises
given by the head of the Government to have
the matter attended to, yet nothing is dene.
Why so much procrastination ? It is dis-
graoeful.
Tut Ex Miubkr for Yalk DisTKicT.—The
Hon. Mr. Cornwall, who represented this district  in  the Legislative Council for the past
two years, was one of the ablest and most
active members of the House. Although his
views on one or two publie matters did not
coincide with those hold by his constituents,
yet his conduct generally was such as to command the respect of the public. More than
any other member ho was subject to the most
offensive tirades of the British Columbian,
and generally everything he said was misrepresented by the same licantious priit. It is
to be hoped that Mr. Cornwall will be returned   for  some  district in the interior.
Williams Creek.
From a gentleman who left Williams Creak
on Tuesday last we have received the following news from Cariboo: There had been
copious rain which gave sufficient water for
working the claims which had beer, stopped.
The Foster Campbell, company were taking
out good pay, but not so large as previously.
The Morning Star company had got into excellent pay and had washed up a large amount.
The Caledonia company washed up 150 ounces
to twenty-four hours' work ; they had struck
a rich spot. The Moffit company were in a
good streak, and were taking out about 17
ounces to the set of timbers. The Cameron
company were not doing so well duriag the
past two weeks as earlier in the season ; they
were running prospecting drifts. The Last
Chance company were making wages. The
Rabey company were making rather more
than wages. The Dead Broke oompany
average about $20 a day to the hand. The
Adams and Rankin companies were making
good wages. The Watsen, Davis, Borealis,
and Wake-up-Jake companies were not paying.
The Cariboo company were averaging expenses. The Lillooet company has been
doing well of late. It was eapected that men
would be able to work for two months longer.
A great many are determined to winter in
Cariboo, and it is thought that there will be a
great deal of prospecting done.
Grouse Oreek.
The Heron company were averaging 50
ounces a day. The Discovery company and
Short Bend company were doing well—making
over wages.
Cedar Oreek.
There were about 50 men on this creek, and
all thc claims open were paying from 1 ounce
to $20 a day to the hand.
New Oreek.
Fivo men earns to the Forks of Quesnel
from the head of South Arm Lake for provisions, and purchased what would do them
for five weeks. They returned to the head of
the lake. It is expected they have found
good diggings, but they declined to give any
information te the public.

Telegraphic Summary.
EUROPEAN NEWS.
New York, Sept. 17.—The following is a
clause in the text in treaty of peace between
Prussia and Austria, signed at Prague on the
2Sd of August, the violatiou of which has tempted Prussia to cease her disbandments and
draw the sword again : The Emperor ot Austria consents to a union ef the Lombardo-Ven-
etian kingdom with the kingdom of Italy ; and
the Emperor makes no other condition therefor than that thc dobts attached to the ceded
territory shall be recognised in conformity
with the treaty.
The following is Napoleon's letter to the
King of Italy in reference to the cession of
Venetia :—" My brother, I have learned with
pleasure that your Majesty has adhered to the
armistice and preliminaries of p< a ■« signed by
Prussia and Austria. It is therefo'c probable
that a new era of tranquility is ib >ut to open
for Europe. Your Majesty knows t lat I accepted the offer of Venetia ia order to save her
(mm any devastation and to prevent useless
bloodshed. My intention has always been to
restore her to herself, in order to free from
the Alps to the Adriatic. Venetia will soon
be able to express her wishes by universal
suffrage. Your Majesty will recognize that
in these circumstances the action of France .
has again been exercised in favor of humanity
and the independence of the people. I renew the assurance of the sentiment of high
esteem and sincere friendship with which I
am your Majesty's good brother."
Napoliom.
St. Cloud, Aug. 11, 1866.
In the negotiations which are taking place
relative to Venetia, the determination of the
amount of debt has been left to the ulterior
deliberations of the plenipotentiaries assembled at Vienna ; but, considering all the circumstances, it seems to us that the definitve
sum cannot be less than two hundred million francs.
Trieste, Sept. 19, noon.—A great battle
has been fought in the Island of Candia between the Turks and insurrectionists. The
Turks were thc victors.
Berlin, Sept. 19.—The abdication of Lud-
wig I., King of Bavaria, is now regarded as
certain.
EASTERN   STATES.
Colonial Hotkl, Yali.—Messrs. Perrie k
Latremcolliere 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 rare
excellence and the table will always be supplied with fie best the market affords. The
bedrooms are clenn and comfortable, and
private rooms are kept for families. The bar
is stocked with first-class liquors and cigars.
The proprietors solicit a trial of the house
from the traveling public.   Terms moderate. *
tJ35~A laughable story is told of a native
of the green Isle of Erin," who, with a neighbor, had just landed from sn emigrant ship.
Noticing a brass button on the sidawalk he
picked it up, and turning to tho other exclaimed, "See here, Jamie; what a fine country
this is to be sliure, when ye git guineas wid
handles to e'm !"
What an absent-minded man he was who on
falling into the river, sank twice beforo he
recollected he could swim.

Ecclisustical.—We understand that it is
the intention of the Bishop of Columbia to
vibit Yale this week, for the purpose of taking
part in the services of St. John's Church on
Sunday next, when his lordship will preach a
sermon on behalf of a fund for the repairs of
the parsonage. On Monday evening next a
meeting will be held at which the Bishop is
expected to be present. We hope there will
be numerous assemblies at the different
services, and that the people will evince their
UBual liberality towards a very worthy object.
Inconvijcimt.—We are requested to state
that in consequence of the inconvenience
felt by the merchants and others here by the
departure of the river steamers on Monday,
a requisition is about to be got up to request
Captains Irving and Fleming to remain here
to Tuesday morning. From the accommodating spirit always manifested by the gentlemen referred to, we have no doubt they will
readily comply with the wishes of our
citizens.
Kootikay.—The Blackfoot Indians have
become very troublesome again. Two parties
of minors left Kootenay for the Saskatchewan
mines, and are supposed to have been murdered by the Blackfoot fiends. Mr. Link-
lighter, of thjL Hudson Bay Company's station
in the mountains, left and brought all his
goods to Kootenay lest an attack might be
made on the fort.

eharged with the murder. Two or three witnesses were examined, but their testimony
against tho accused was not direct, having
only been derived from Indians who were not
present.    We'understand that if a detective I
were sent among the ladians of thc locality | STABLING- FOR ANIMALS
where thc murder was committed, evidence
might be obtained, as some of the goods and
clothing of thc female are still among the
natives. Even at this distance of time a
strong effort should be made to bring the
guilty party to justice, for a more henious
crime was never committed than that of the
murder ef the innocent individuals in this instance. We learn that an Indian named
Capt. Jim is in concealment at Masqui, lest
he may be arrested for being one of the receivers of thc stolen goods. Wc hope this
matter will be probed to the bottom, as
without that being done thc public mind will
not be satisfied in regard to it.

TAXATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
An arLicle which wo produced yesterday
from Harper's' Weekly—a staunch supporter
of Congress—on the subject of taxation,
demonstrates very conclusively that there are
questions involved in the approaching Congressional elections of vastly greater importance tlinn negro suffrage. That article sets
forth that taxation in the Eastern States now
amounts to $15 CO per head, for every man,
woman nnd child in the United States, even
estimating the total population at 32,000,000,
and this exclusive of thc taxation required
for the supjjort of State, county and municipal governmentn. We have shown in n
former article that taxation for Federal purposes amounts to §20 in gold per head for
every man, woman and child in California,
and this exclusive of the $3 12 in gold which
we havo to pay for the support of our State,
county, and municipal governments; which,
estimating the difference between paper and
gold, makes taxation here double what it is
on tho other side of the mountains.—[S. F.
Alta.
"A Roland fok an Oliver."—In sarcastic
response to the bill which Mr. Banks took upon
himself to iatroduce into Congress, for the
annexation of British North America to the
United States, a Mr. Skinner has introduced
into the Provincial Parliament a bill bearing
tho following title I " A bill to establish conditions for the admission of the States of Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the District of Columbia into the
British North American Confederation, and for
the organization of Territorial governments
for the other States of the American nation."
They have big snakos in Texas. One of
them measuring 11 feet 7 inches in length,
enterd a house near the bay shore at Galveston, and, finding a kg oi' mutton, swallowed
it. The inmates ef the house were in bed,
but awakend in time to sec this gastronomic-
al feat. lie was pursued to the water's edge
and killed.
