my grave responsibility to God, which I shall

OUR COLONIAL DEFENCES.
The question so long deferred by the Imperial Government in connection with the defences of these colonies will now be forced
into prominence from the events transpiring
in tho eastern provinces of British North
America. Whilst every other point of the
empire has had the careful guardianship of
the mother country, these colonies have been
not only allowed to shift for themselves, but
they have been left open at all points to attack
by the enemies of the country. Not a shilling has been expended up to the present
time in fortifying a single place in either
colony; neither have we a regiment of troops
stationed amongst us for our protection. This
in, to say the least, most ungenerous treatment to such young colonies. The Imperial
Government have not only placed the other
dependencies of tho Crown In a position to
defend themselves, but they have stationed
British troops in them, also, to aid in their
defence, whilst we are totally unprotected,
unless by a small number of gunboats.    Now
THE FENIAN RAID.
Tho all absorbing subject at present is the
raid into Canada of a horde of fanatics known
as Fenians. That their attempts will prove
wholly abortive wo hnve sufficient evidence
from the telegraphic reports already received.
The fipirit of burning patriotism and loyalty
manifested by Canadians in rally ing round the
glorious standard of their country to repel the
dastardly invader, will put to silence for ever
thc insinuations that have been so frequently
indulged in regarding their attachment to
"ihe Hag that braved a thousand years the
battle and the breeze." The following extract
from the telegraphic reports is a gratifying
testimony to the noblo spirit that universally
prevails in our sister colony:
"There bus been mest enthusiastic and solid
loyalty throughout Canada, and not a single
resident Fenian has shown himself; indeed,
several hundred Canadians, residing in Chicago
and western cities, have gone home to volunteer for defense. The funeral of the volunteers killed at Eidgeway was attended at
Toronto yesterday, with most popular demonstrations, all business being suspended."
PROSPECTING.
Tlio season of the year when eiploration
nnd prospecting can be carried on without
any very great hindrances has arrived, and
our object in drawing attention to the fact, is
to urge upon all who have an interest in the
country to do something towards the development of our mineral resources. When we
consider thc vast extent of territory we
possess in this colony, and the difficulty of
penetrating a country so densely wooded, it is no wonder that so little progress
ha3 been made in opening up the country.
But manifold as the difficulties are, the prizes

A  CARD
THE   PUBLIC.
Yaw, B. C, 7th June, 1866.
We, the undersigned passengers by Davis'
Stage Line from Savana's Ferry to Yule, beg
to inform the public, through the medium of
the press, that in our late trip down from the
mines to this place, wo received the best
of treatment from the proprietor of Davis'
well conducted line of stages. Instead of
requiring us to walk any part of the journey,
ilr. Davis made a connection where the road
was impassable by bringing a well appointed
stage out from Yale and had it in waiting, to
convey us from that point to the end of our
journey. Our trip was, therefore, from beginning to end, mude comfoi table, pleasant
and speedv. We think the people should
support a lino of stages that carries passengers for $15, in opposition to a monopoly line
that, when it had the power in the beginning
of the  season,   before Davis' line went on,
, ■ ,       p ■*■     lot the  season,   before Davis' line went on,
that this matter must be taken up, wei trust;,.,torted $40! from the helpless traveler for
that not a moments delav   will be allowed 1.1.        ■ •       «—        ■•       ■
that not a moment's delay will be allowed
without our local Governments bringing the
undefended state of the country beforo Her
Majesty's Government for their consideration.
Petition* on this subject from the people
should also be got up at once to the Home
Government from every part of both colonies,
asking for protection.
THE ORIGINATOR OF FENIANISAL
We haye seen a letter in the hands of a
gentleman here, written from New York in
May, 1854, by that doubly dyed traitor, John
Mitchell, to the late Terence Bellew McManus,
who then resided in San Francisco, which
places beyond a doubt that Mitchell is the
sole author ond originator of the infamous
conspiracy now known as Fenianism. Tiie
letter treats of many subjects of absorbing
interest at the present time; on that account,
as well as a valuable contribution to history,
we hope to bo able to publish the manifesto
in our next issue.

ernment to do all that is requisite in a mattei
of this  kind.    We  confess that we hare.no
faith in Government explorations.   They are
far too costly affairs, and the results to our
mind are uever equal to individual exertion,
when it is carried on in earnest.    When we
consider the immense sum squandered by Mr.
Moberly and his army of retainers last year
without any  practical result, wc have given
up all hope of any benefit arising from the
eserlious of Government expeditions.    The
soundesi and cheapest system for the Government to follow to encourage exploration and
prospecting,  would  be  to ofi'or  a series of
substantial rewards, uuclogged by the ridiculous  restrictions   which has always accompanied their offers heretofore.    This would be

thc  Government is generally slow in doimr'

are put forward in the press by the Rival
Line in the names of certain parties against
Davis' line. We feci certain that such effusions proceed from envy, hatred and malice,
borne to Davis on account of his success in
obtaining such extensive patronage from the
traveling public, and we warn the public to
tna' such ''opposi ion squibs" with con einpt,
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 are not harassed out of their lives
by walking und pushing the stage up hills like
on other lines, the hones being fine spirited
animals, Ct for their work, aud able to proceed on their journey without such assistance.
Many of as traveled up to bavana's Ferry
in the early part of the season, as well as on
the di.wn 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 the staging in
this colony that has kept up fares to an ex-
ton ionate height, and to keep up a healthy
competition in this ni well as in oilier branches
of bu3ine;s, we would urge all persons going
up or coming down from the mines to give
D*vis' line support on account ot ita cheapness, rapidity of conveyance and comfort.
There are no tonlora or paid runners for
Davis' line, so travelers should be on the look
out nnd not bt toped in by any unserupulou*

anything, we would impress upon the people
thc necessity of taking up. this matter them-
selves.    All their interests depend upon the
success of the mines, as without resources of
that kind to employ a population in the country, farming,  milling, stock raising and merchandizing, uro only a waste of time and unprofitable.     The  work  of   prospecting this
country cannot be done by one or two parties,
nor yet in one year.    It must be the work of
numerous  parties,  continued from  year   to
year,  until   there  is not a part of thc gold
bearing range that has not been thoroughly
explored-     The  prospects which have been
already obtained of gold and silver bearing
quartz   prove   conclusively   that   there   are
ledges in this country equal to any found in
the neighboring territories, yet how little has
been done to prospect extensively for what is
the best and most permanent description of
mines—quartz ledges.    Scarcely anything has
so far been done in this direction, whilst the
reward that a good quartz ledge would bring
to its discoverer is far greater than would result from any other discovery.    We hope that
there will be somo energy displayed during
the present summer to forward the exploration of the country and to aid in the development of the hidden riches which it undoubtedly possesses in abundance.

More Fiuohtenkd than Hurt.—Some time
since a police constable, armed to the teeth
with six-shooter, bowie knife and shot-gun,
was proceeding across the trail from Seymour
to the Columbia river accompanied by a
stalwart native who was engaged in packing
the officer's blankets. When near thc summit
of the mountain, a large dark colored animal
was espied some distance before the travelers
resting himself ou the trail. Assuming at
once from its size and shaggy appearance that
it was a huge bear, the two men turned round,
dropped their "icias," and made for the tallest
tree they could find. The aborigine outstripped the conservator of the peace and was
soon safely lodged in the highest branch of a
stately pine, but was no sooner there than his
master was alter him. Getting themselves
fixed, the two hemes awaited with breathless
anxiety and- trepidation the approach every
minute of the dreaded monster. The day
was cold and inclement in the extreme, and
for four mortal hours the pair sac shivering on
the tree, not knowing bu' they might be kept
there all night, if not devoured before that
time, At last a number of miners made their
welcome appearance, when they were warned
of the dang >r ahead. Not being so easily
frightened as a policeman, the miners drew
their Derringers and manfully stepped up to
the beast, which, to their surprise, turned out
to be a dog and not a bear after all, It appeared a packer i.d left a large Newfoundland
dog, which had become disabled from overwork, behind on the mountain, and the poor
animal, being unablo to walk, lay bemoaning
his hard fate on the trail. We need scarcely
say, that on timling the mistake, the miners
set up a hearty laugh at the exp"iise of the
constable and his companion, both of whom
certamly seemed to feel the inglorious figure
they had cut. The s'ory afterwards went the
ronn Is at every camp fire on the creeks in
i! g Bend, aud served to create considerabl"
merrimetii wherever it was told.
The Tvi.eiiiui'II Company.—We invite the
atti ntiou of " An Employee" at Quesnel,
oi th* Western Union Telegraph Company,
to 1 tier of Mr. Abney, another employee,
wh cli appears in our1 ia-ue to-day. After
"An Employee" has dis| osed of Abnvy'a
caSi*, like that of the Cninanian, to his own
tutisflotion, we may, perhaps, present him
with some additional cases of hardship upon
which he can exercise his ingenuity and
special pleading, as well as spate moments, in
replying to.
V.'oi.F Captured.—In tne beginning of the
past week a wolf was seen prowling about
the slaughter-) ouse of Mr. Recce, on the
bank oppo-ico Yale, when traps were immediately got and set on his track. Tlie
second night . heist was captured, having
been caught by one foot. He measured 5
feet, 8 inches; weighed 85 pounds, and was
2 feet, G inches high. Before his capture he
carried off nearly throe dozen of chickens, as
well as several turkeys.
First STRAwr*..:RiKS of thk Skason.—We
are informed that Jr. James Donnallv, proprietor of Scowlitch R niche at Harrison
river, regaled the officers of the steamer
Lillooet, on the last trip, with ripe native
strawberries and cream. The berries were
picked ill the ranche, near Scowlitch. This is
the lirst yield we have heard of this fruit this
season.
Tt
Waooon Road.—The d image to this
ro. ' - not been so great as was generally
reported. The river having subsided, and
the road being clear, nit-n v.ere immediately
set to work to r pair damage. The stages
ptised through yesterday without any im-
pediment , and loai!»d teams will be able to
(i nceed now without any interruption.
Forwarding.—Several large pack trains
left Yale on Saturday last, bound lor Cariboo
and Big Bend with goods. Owing to the
roads having been impassable from floods
for some time past, very little goods l.avc been
forwarded to ihe interior of late.
Silvkr Okk from Kamloops.—We understand that an assay has been made at the
Govemn ent office, New Wi stmluster, of the
rock referred io by Mr. K ay in another part
ol our issue, ..nd that very promising indications of silver were found.
Fraser Rivkr.— The effect of thc cold
weather during the past week has been to reduce ihe waters In the Fraser at least ten
feet. The late rise in the river has not been
equalled for many years.

LETTER FROM SEYMOUR,
(vaou   our   own   corrrspohdijnt.)
June drd, 1866.
Reliable parties have arrived here from
French and McCullough's Creeks with news
from the mines to 1st inst. From them I
have received tho following information:
The trail for 21 miles from Seymour is goo:l.
then about 10 miles of snow across the
divide; 60 mon are at present employed in
shoveling the snow, they will get through next
week, the remainder of the trail to the lnnd-
ing is good and dry. Turnbull has 22 men at
work on the trail from McCullough's Creek to
ilie steamboat landing ; five miles were completed on VVednesday last, it will be finished
in eight days; the divide is low. The trail
v ill be a good one and easy for animals, with
a little feed. The ferry is removed from
Kirby's to the -teamboat Landing. On Saturday (26th) the water rose so high that work
on most of the claims was temporarily suspended. On McCullough's Creek there whs
no snow for a mile from the mouth, above
that from two to eight feet. Several companies above the Discovery were making preparations for work. The Discovery Company
are erecting a derick to remove boulders.
Above the canon three companies are tiking
out frotn-.$P2 to $16 per day to the hand from
the surface, they have not sunk below the
clay ; above these companies, and about two
miles above the Discovery, several shafts
were bottomed, could find the color but
nothing more. One company is still sinking,
they are down thirty feet; struck gravel
below the day, iu it they found a few fine
colors. The company are determined to reach
bed rock if possible. Many in the vicinity
uro just   'ailing the results of this shaft.
On French Creek, for three or four miles,
ihere is very little snow ; above that there is
Mill snow to tho dep It of two feet and upwards. Tne Monroe company is tho only one
linking out pay. For the week ending May
28th, this company divided $40 to the interest
over wages. The other companies were
building wheels, making dams, and cutting
noes to turn the bed of the creek, but the
high water had almost completely slopped nil
work. Thirteen hou-es are being built and
finished, on speculation.
Tno number of men on both creeks is
estimated at fiuO. About 90 are at the Steamboat Landing.
Every day, we have men returning, some
giving a fearful description of tlie place, others
again think more favorably of the creeks and
are of opinion lhat money will be taken out
as soon us the water goes down. It will be
five or six weeks yet before money will be
taken out, and the majority of men coming
here had not sufficient means to last, so they
had to go to Cariboo or elsewhere. Sandy
Fortune thinks favorably of it, he intends returning in a month.
The Forty-Nine was expected up yesterday.
The steamer Marten is iu sight. A report
just spreading about a strike on French Creek,
will try to find where it oo-nes from.
The following extract is from a letter received by Mr. Vowell, (of Commissioner
O'Reilly's stall',) yesterday, from Mr. Wm.
Smith, Mr. O'Reilly's clerk, dated French
Creek, May 31st: "A company on French
Creek reached bed rock and washed up, yesterday, eleven ounces. The country is all right."
Tins you may depend on b^ ing reliable. There
is no later general news. The Forty-Nine had
not arrived up to Friday.
Ilous-, from thc Lands and Works Department, is here to sell the lots. Mr. Morris,
surveyor, is exploring the pass by the South
Arm, it is said lor the Hudson's Bay Company.
The Marten had five passengers and about
six tons of freight. No changes in prices,
same as last quoted, but no sales.
I think the number of men in tho mines
for the next month will bo very small, but
after that there will be a reaction. As soon
as a few claims commence taking out pay confidence will bo restored. Thc steamer will
make two trips this week, if anything new I
will write Thursday.
THE FENIAN INVASION.
The Fenians, 1,800 strong, under Col. II.
Iv. Stagst, crossed the Niagara river four miles
below Buffalo. Reports that large bodies
wcre at St. Albihs and other ports along tho
St. Lawrence river threatening invasion.
Uniied States troops were being sent to the
norders to prevent breach of neutrality by
Fenians.
Col. O'Neil, the officer in command of the
Fenian army invading Canada, is the person
through whose instrumentality Union soldiers
were forced to choose between starving ti!
Andersonvillo and entering tho rebel army,
and was in thc battle of Franklin, waero ho
was twice wounded.
Detroit, June 2.—.All quiet. Fenians recognize the authority of Stephens, and do not
sympathize with Sweeney's movements. lenthi
The  Fenian  depredation is confined to e.\r
few miles round Erie.
Gen. Grant passed westward this morning
and telegraphed Gen. Meade to assign Gen.
Barry to the command of the Niagara frontier.
Gen. Barry is here
Buffalo, under the guns of the United States
steamer Michigan, it being thought unsafe to
bring them ashore lest rescue might, bo attempted by several hundred Irishmen who
Sivarm the American shore.
Chicago, June 4.—British troops are now
guarding the frontier, and are picking up th«
Fenian stragglers, of whom it ia estimated
200 or 300 remained after evacuation. Fenian
loss will not exceed 25 killed. The entire invading forco did not exceed 1,000. British
loss estimated 60 killed and wounded. Gen.
Barry, having assumed command on tho
American frontier, from Erie to Oswego, ia
prepared to prevent any further breach of
neutrality. He is waiting Instructions from
Washington as to what to do with prisoners.
General Sweeney was ut Albany yesteiday,
and started last night for Pottsdam. A dispatch from Albany says Niagara failures do
not discourage the Fenians. There is great
enthusiasm for another invasion in stronger

From Mr. R. N. Steele, who left Williams
Creek on the 4th inst., we learn that prospects
iu Cariboo looked very bright. Tho following
claims were doing well: Tlie Cameron, Moffat,
Caledonia, Last Chance, and California Tunnel
Companies were paving well. The Davis' Company had declared dividends of $1,100 to the
share for a week's work. The Aurora Company was paying well, on Sunday, the 3d
inst., they cleaned up 306 ounces for six horns
washing. The Morning Star Company had
got a largo prospect. The Reid Company, iu
