SAN FRANCISCO CORRESPONDENCE.

San Francisco, April 17, 18C0.
The Loss of the Labouchere.
I was at some pains to prepare for your
readers an account of the manufactures of
California, and- I dispatched my letter by the
H. B. Co.'s steamer Labouchere. That letter
is now lying sixty fathoms deep, in the wreck
of that vessel. The Labouchere left ban
Francisco for Victoria at G p. m. on Saturday,
the 14th instant, with about 60 passengers.
She had been advertised to sail on that day,
and as she had already been delayed far
beyond a reasonable time for the completion
of her alterations, Captain Mouatt determined
to sail at the appointed time, whether she was
ready or not. At 4 o'clock on the sailing day
not one of her steerage berths was erected,
and some thirty carpenters were at work upon
her, while a number of drunken sailors who
had been shipped for the company's ship
Princess Royal, lying at Victoria, were making
confusion worse confounded on her decks.
As the time drew on the hurry and bustle increased, and, it being impossible to stow anything away below, or to put anything in order
while the mechanics were at work, stores of
all kinds wero piled and thrown about her
docks, mingled with shavings, dirt, and the
accumulations of a month's litter alongside
the wharf, until it was difficult to believe that
she could go to sea for another week. To
crown all, a number of low wharf loafers got
on board and began to fight with the sailors
of the Princess Royal, and finding it impossible to separate them, or to restore order,
Captain Mouatt gave the word to cast off from
the wharf, and backing out into the bay, then
hove to, and put all tho landsmen ashore.
And thus the last that was seen of the Labouchere was a scene of indescribable confusion
und nOisi', which boded ill for the successful
terminal ion of her trip. How far the omen
was trustworthy, the sequel will show. On
Sunday evening, at about six o'clock, the
rumor  began  to  be buzz«l about town that
fired at them three times, the cowards refused
to return. Those left on board then started
making rafts, and while thus engaged, a fishing smack came up and rescued them. Capt.
Mouatt refused to leave the ship, and indeed
he had said good bye to his two little boys
when he sent them away with the women,
and told them to tell their mamma she would
never see him again. He insisted on remaining by his ship, and the passengers and crew
were at length compelled to use force to save
him from sacrificing his life uselessly. All
who wcre on board unite in according the
highest praise to Captain Mouatt for his coolness, bravery and determination during this trying time. Soon after they left her, at about 8
a. m., tho good ship Labouchere sank down
until the pressure of the water forced oft' her
now upper works, and then, with a roll to
starboard and another to port, she threw up
her stern and went down, bowes foremost, to
the bottom. It is supposed that thc cause of
the disaster was the influence upon her compasses of the iron work in her new upper
works. The disaster created quite a sensation
hero, and little else was talked of until Monday I afternoon, when the attention of everyone 'was divided by the occurrence of one of
the most terrible catastrophes that has ever
taken place in San Francisco.
Terrible Explosion.
At a quarter past one in the afternoon the
city was startled by a tremendous report, like
that'of a park of artillery simultaneously discharged. Thc first idea was that it was an
earthquake; the second, that the Golden
Gate Mills had blown up. The streets were
instantly thronged with an excited crowd,
rushing along Montgomery street towards
California, when a cloud of reddish-brown
vapor indicated the scene of the accident.
The explosion was found to have occurred iu
tho roar of Wells, Fargo & Co.'s office, and
at first it was thought that it had originated
in the assay office of G. W. Bell, which adjoins Wells, Fargo k Co.'s office. The back
rooms of the Union.Club, which arc on the
upper floor,   were   one mass  of  ruins—the
tho chapter of accidents this week is the
heaviest known for many a long year on this
coast. Caustic.

the  steamer Labouchere had been wrecked,
and was totally lost, though thc crew and pas-|ro0r wn!J  blown  out,   and the  whole back
sengers had been saved. The rumor soon became a certainty, and your eorrespoudeut
ascertained that several of the passengers,
amongst whom were Mr. Elliott', the late
chief engineer of thc ill-fated boat, and Mr.
Dickenson of Victoria, had returned to San
Eruncisco. I will now tell their talo as it was
told to me. After leaving the harbor of San
Francisco, the Labouchere steamed quietly
northward at the rate of about nine miles per
hour; the night fell dark and thick, but the
sea was calm and the wind light. All went
well until a few minutes before 10 p. m., when
the Captain suddenly sounded the engine bell
to stop her, and almost simultaneously with
the stroke of the bell she struck heavily on
the reef which runs out from Point Reves,
about thirty-five miles from San Francisco.
It appears that Captain Mouatt did not believe
she had sustained very serious injuries, for
after backing her into deep water, which was
effected without difficulty, ho kopt her running up and down in the same neighborhood
until daylight, the weather being too thick
to proceed—though it is difficult- to understand why he did not return to port, which
he might easily have done, since it was only a
four hours rim, and the vessel floated eight
hours uf'ier she went on thc reef. The scene
on board is described as being very terrible.
Women wringing their hands and praying the
men to save their children—men rushing to
and fro, and universal terror prevailing. The
pumps were rigged at ouoe, and kept going
throughout the night, and with tolerable success until daybreak, when a fresh leak was
discovered, and then the passengers became
disheartened, and refused to volunteer for the
pumps. Captain Mouatt then ordered a boat
to be lowered, and the women and children
wero put into it, though not until the Captain
was compelled to threaten to shoot one
cowardly fellow who refused to get out of the
boat to make room for a woman. These having got off clear, a second boat was lowered,
and so on, till all' the passengers but twenty-
live were cloar, I may mention that it providentially happened that John Reid, the Victoria ferryman, had five boats on board, us
" night, and if, it had not been for them many
of the passengcrTlnight have been lost. As
it was, one boat was upset alongside and two
men, a, negro under-steward and poor Marshall
the miner, were drowned. The last boat lull
before it was half full, and though the Captain

premises gutted. Not a whole pane of glass
was left in any building within a radius of a
quarter of a mile, and the loss of life was terrible. The manager of Wells, Fargo & Co.'s,
Mr. Samuel Knight, was killed on the spot, as
was Mr. Bell the assayer, Mr. Havens of
Well*, Fargo .V. Co.'s, and Mr. Webster of the
Pacific Mail Steamship Co. Seven bodies
were yesterday dug out of the ruins, frightfully mutilated, whilst two men were literally
blown to atoms—their brains, scalps, hones
and flesh, being hurled far and wide for blocks
around. At least fifty persons were wounded
either by broken glass or driving missiles.
People in the express office wcre blown out
into the street, and women walking three
blocks off were wounded by flying fragments.
The cause of this terrible disaster is now
ascertained to have been an explosive oil of
terrific power called nitro-glycerine, which
has recently been invented, and which it is
proposed to use in mining for blasting purposes. It appears that a case of this had
been shipped from the East on board tlie lust
steamer to some one in the interior, and the
consignee had refused to take it because it
had been damaged on the voyage. It was
brought up to Wells, Fargo & Co.'s that
morning to be stored there, nnd they were
apparently iguoraut of its contents. In the
afternoon Messrs. Haven, Webster and a
party named Jester, went into the back yard
to inspect the case, and it was probably in
breaking it open that the explosion took
place. It has been oscertained to-day that
pieces of wood soaked in nitro-glycerino will
explode on being struck witii a hammer, und
as the oase had been leaking, this will explain
the origin of the disaster. The damage done
to property may be estimated at $60,000, and
the loss of life is perfectly terrible. Nothing
else is talked of ever since, and the excitement is something extraordinary. You will
find more detailed accounts of the terrible
affair in the Sun Fruncisco pnpers, but I have
given you the leading facts in as concise a
form us possible. I was present during thc
whole time they were digging out the bodies,
and anything more terrible or sickening it is
impossible to conceive. I saw ono body
brought out so mangled and mutilated that
they were obliged to wrap a sheet round it to
keep it together, while another was so dis-
mombered that all that remained was carried
out in a champagne basked.   Taken together,

PUBLIC WORKS.
At present it is the prevailing feeling among
the community that it requires interest and
influence to obtain a contrast under Government. Whether there is any foundation for
such a charge we are not 'prepared to say,
but we do think it most desirable that gome-
thing were done to disabuse the public mind
of such an impression, if it be erroneous. In
connection with the expenditure on Ihe public
works of the colony, we trust the Chief Commissioner, during the ensuing summer, will
not only make a close inspection of what was
done last year, but will take care to make
himself fully acquainted with the country
where new trails are indispensable hereafter.
Mr. Trutch's vast experience is not only
necessary in deciding on the best line, but we

without his presence on the spot to direct

hearing a good anecdote told of Sir James
Douglas which forcibly illustrates our posin'on
in connection with this subject. A high
official belonging to this colony went to Sir
James one day and requested that his excel

to carry out some public work.   Instead of

We regret, however, to find under the present weeding to the request  Sir James without

We have been permitted to make the following extract from a letter received from
Mr. Wash Elrick, eDgiueer of steamer 49,
from Colville. The letter is dated 22d February last:
" Times are very lively here at the present
time with miners going up the river, and
others waiting to go in small boats. The
river is clear of ice. There is six inches of
snow on the ground. Five boats started up
yesterday for French Creek. The steamer 49
will leave on the 15 th of March for Death
Rapids, 250 miles above here. Your old
friends, John Cluckson, Peter Nobles, Jim
Gerald and a host of others, are all here
going up to the mines. This is the greatest
country I ever struck for amusements; balls
every night, and horse-riding and sleighing
all day long. Every man carries his Colt's
revolver or knife here. Only four men have
been killed this winter, and it's been unusual
quiet! This place beats California in 1850
for plenty of money and gambling."

The people will therefore be glad to find the

Government acted as contractor. In nearly
■tfvery instance the money was expended
without the Chief Commissioner having exercised thc least outside supervision over the
outlay. Trails have been made, or partially
made, which Mr. Trutch has never yet inspected to judge for himself whether the work
executed was satisfactory and in proportion
to the amount expended.   On one trail alone
would have had many a good trail iu districts
where there is now a bad one, and the public
exchequer would have been saved many a
thousand dollars besides.

year: For trails in Columbia District, $17,000;

Hope, about a week since, and brought it
ashore. Deceased was 5 feet 10 inches in Light,
with light hair. He had on a pair of boots
.supposed to have been made by Johnston
of New Westminster, dark trowsers made
of tine cloth, white merino undershirt,
grey drawers, white overs-hirt and grey
woolen socks. The pockets of the trowsers
had been torn out. The body must have
been in the water for at   least   a  month.

Attkmptkd Soicidk.—A colored man named
Steele,   belonging  to  Cariboo, attempted on
Thursday evening last to commit suicide, at
Yale, whilst laboring under a fit of temporary
insanity. Steele had only arrived by one of
the steamers, on his way up country, when he
-threw himself off the vessel into the Fraser.
He was fortunately rescued just as he was
going down for the third time. On being
taken out of the water he was lodged in jail
for the night. On recovering his senses thc
next day, he was discharged.
Speedy Justice.—The prisoners tried at the
Assizes here on Friday last, committed the
crime for which they were convicted, on the
22d ultimo. The following day they were arrested, and within a Fortnight they had their
trial at the Assizes. They will be conveyed
to New Westminster to-day, to undergo their
sentence of penal servitude for 10 years.
Justice has overtaken the guilty in this esse
swiftly, and should serve as a wholesome
warning to any unprincipled wretches bent on
a career of crime.
YALE ASSIZES,
Leave Expired.—It was stated at the time
of the departure of his excellency Governor
Seymour, for England, that be had leave of
nbsencc for only six months. If that statement were true, he has already exceeded his
limit by two months, as eight months have
elapsed since his excellency left this colony.
The period of the Governor's return was uncertain at latest advices.
A Bear Killed with a Club.—An  Indian
■who was out on the bench opposite Yale, a
few days since, came across a large black
bear, which he attacked with a club. Bruin
being in a rather weak state after hybernating
during the past winter, was unable to show
much fight. After considerable exertion, thc
native succeeded in killing the monster with
the club.
Elected.—The electors of Victoria have
returned Mr. C. B. Young as their representative, in room of Mr. Selitn Franklin. We
congratulate both electors and elected on the
result of the late contest. Mr. Young will
make a valuable member. The demagogues
have received another wholesome lesson in
Victoria.
Union.—Thc Victoria Chronicle says, Sir
James Douglas has received a dispatch from
London which states that the colonies are to
be united under a Federal Government, with
one Governor, and a fiscal system in accordance with the wishes of the people of each
colony. It is also stated that Victoria is to
be a Free Port aud the capital.
Pioneer Hotel.—Messrs. Robinson & Bran-
ton have opened the Pioneer Hotel at Seymour City, where they will dispense the
creature comforts to all who may favor them
with their patronage. Mr. Robinson has had
considerable experienoe in hotel keeping, and
is favorably known to all Caribooitcs as having been a length of time conducting Mr.
McCaffery's hotel in Van Winkle.
Untrue.—The statement that  we sold a
half interest in the Cariboo Sentinel for six
hundred dollars is totally and entirely false.
We disposed of our interest in the plant of thc
Sentinel for a great deal more than it cost us j
in Curiboo. With respect to the Evening
Express or Post, we have repeatedly ottered
to re-purchase the property from its present
owner.
Left.—The Hon. Judge Begbie, his regif-
Yar Mr. Pooley, and Hon. Mr. Walkem left
trale on Saturday morning last, in a canoe,
for Harrison river, en route to Lillooet, to
hold the Assizes there. The Judge will leave
for Cariboo immediately after the Assizes in
Lillooet. Messrs. Walker and Robertson,
barristers, have gone direct to Cariboo.
The Weather.—The thermometer in Yale
stood yesterday, at two o'clock, at 90 degrees
in the shade.
We have received several letters from Seymour since our last, the latest being up to the
29th ultimo. Owing to the snow getting soft
on the mountains it was almost impracticable
to paok goods into the mines. Animals could
not cross under any circumstances, and Indians would not pack under 60 cents a pound,
and even at that high rate were not inclined
to accept freight. A blacksmith who had
500 lbs. of iron at Seymour, which was much
wanted at French Creek, ottered $500 cash to
get it freighted over, but could not get any
one to undertake tho job. There had been a
great reduction in price of provisions at the
head of the lake, in consequence of a great
many persons going there with goods who
could not get them packed into the mines, and
were obliged to sacrifice them. ,FIour was reduced to 16 cents per lb. by the bag; bacon,
6'2£ cents per lb.; Tea, $1 per lb. Building
was going on very briskly at Seymour, and
already the place has assumed considerable
importance. News had arrived that Bob
Nobles and Abbott, two old Caribooites, who
went up Clemens Creek more than a month
ago, had struck nine dollars to the pan on new
ground. Cal Boyle of Lillooet arrived in
Seymour before our latest dispatch was sent
off, and confirmed the good news. Fourteen
boats had arrived at Gold Creek up the Columbia river in one day, with men and provisions.
On their arrival flour was reduced to 40 cents
per ;b. One of our letters expresses the
opinion that "the Columbia river will be the
route for getting provisions into the mines
early in the season, as it will be the month of
June before auimals can cross the divide."
The party lately arrived by the Columbia
river states that hundreds of boats were coming up with miners and provisions. The
weather at Seymour had been wet and disagreeable of late.
From a party who arrived here from the
Columbia River via Seymour, we have further
particulars. Our informant crossed over the
Government trail to the Columbia river about
a fortnight ago. Only one boat had got up
the river at that time, but ten more boats
were reported within a short distance of the
landing,
have got
15th ultimo, with 250. men bound for the
mines. Not being able to get further for the
ice in the river the passengers landed, and
the steamer went back for more miners waiting to come up. The general opinion was
that the steamer would not get up to Death
Rapids before the 1st of May at soonest, and
the report that she had arrived was discredited.
Flour was reported to be only 40 cents per lb.
at the mines at latest dates. The claim struck
by Abbott, on Clemens Creek, was said to be
worth $10,000. Mr. O'Reilly had left Seymour for French Creek, where it was understood he would take up his headquarters. He
had to pay 80 cents per lb. for packing his
things over the divide. The trail is described
as terrible ; in fact, worse than any in Cariboo in early times. Our informant offered
Flour at Seymour before he toft, on the 28th
ultimo, at 16 cents per lb., and no saie even at
that price. Mr. Gaggin, J. P., was at Seymour. Mr. Moberly was there also, waiting
for Indians he had sent for to Lytton, to go
with him to pack on his exploring expedition.
Ten natives had been engaged to go up,
and were about to start yesterday. The
steamer Marten was planked, but it will be
the 10th before she is ready for launching.
Two days is the average time occupied in
crossing the lakes. There were rumors that
the U. S. soldiers at Colville had deserted,
taking their guns with them to the mines.
LATEST.
Three merchants arrived last evening from
Seymour, which place they left on 1st May.
There is no doubt of the 49's arrival above
where the Government trail strikes the Columbia river. In addition, forty boats had also
got up with miners and provisions. Flour
was quoted at the mines at 40 to 50 cents per
lb. John Gallacher and his companions had
arrived at their old mining camps. The
greatest confidenco was felt in the mines and
large prospects were being taken out. A
rumor had got in that two new gold bearing
creeks had been discovered, said to be tributaries of French Creek. The steamer Marten
is planked and caulked, and will be launched
for certain on Thursday next. A gentleman
who saw her informed us that the vessel is a
model of beauty, apparently very strongly
built. He gives it as his opinion, that when
she is completed, there will not be fo fine a
.;teamer in the colony. The engineers have
the machinery all arranged and ready for fitting in the moment the steamer is brought
down. It will take a very short time now
until the boat is ready to run.
(Before Hon. Mr. Justice Begbie.)
The Assizes for this district were opened
here on Friday morning last. A store in the
main street was improvised into a Court-house
for the occasion. A. Barlow, Esq., acted as
Sheriff for the first time since his appointment, and performed his duty with great
efficiency. The following grand jury were
sworn by tlie acting registrar of the
Court, Mr. Pooley, viz.:—Joseph Burr,
foreman; Hugh Ross, Mark Stevens, Edward
Healey, Allen C. Wells, Benjamin Bailey,
Richard Kelly, Lewis Greenbaum, William
Leigh, John Iteece, Samuel Oppenheim, Edwin Peck, Suciifle Baxter, John Mitchell,
James Barry.
The judge addressed the j ury on the nature
of their duties generally, after which the
Court adjourned to allow time for the jury to
consider the hills of indictment. After a
brief interregnum, the jury handed in true
bills against George Fuller, Joseph Fuller,
James Courcy and William Ross for the robbery at Lytton City. The prisoners were then
sent for and arraigned on the indictment
before a petit jury.    On being

grand jury subsequently handed in the fol4
lowing report:    .
THE GRAND juuy report.
Yale, B. C, 4th May, 1866.
The grand jury beg fo cull the attention of
the honorable Judge Begbie to the following
nuisances in Yale and its vicinity, as well as
io other important mutters, and re quest his
attention to the same:
1st. The Post office and buildings attached
being on thc public road, require immudiato
removal for the public convenience.
2d. That the road leading from Yale to the
Cemetery is impassable, being blocked up and
fenced across, so that a corpbd cannot be conveyed there on any vehicle, and only with
great difficulty can it bo curried on men's
shoulders or by Indians.
8d. The extending of the jurisdiction of
'he County Courts io at least $500 would be
looked upon as a most desirable improvement,
of the lav, inasmuch as it would enable
merchants and others to recover their debts
more freely than at present, i.nd at n. great
ileal less cost to litigants than they are obliged
U incur under the existing state of I ho law.
4th. Information having been received that
called on to!tne perpetrators (Indians) of the murder of a
man and woman, (Dutch) in the year 185S,

names were not given at the time of arrest,

accused. The Crown prosecutor, in a short
address to the jury, stated the nature of the
evidence that would be laid before them.

Indians were subsequently examined through
an interpreter. They deposed to watching
the prisoners after the robbery and seeing
them bring the plunder to camp. On their
information of this fact to the Chief Constable at Lytton, the accused were arrested.
Chief Constable Cochrane gave testimony to
the effect of the party having stopped together at Lytton for over a week previous to
the robbery, and during that time had no
ostensible means of living. They left the
town the evening beforo the store was broken

pacific declarations of Prussia.
