YALE, MONDAY, JUNE 4, 1866.
No. 9
LETTER FROM SEYMOUR.
May 25th, 1866.
Seymour—the head of Shuswap lake—is a
very pretty town site ; there are now about
twenty finely built stores and saloons. In one
of the latter the hurdies nightly enliven the
city with their trips on the light, etc.—price
150 cents. A great many men are daily arriving here from Savana's Ferry, and not a few
are returning from the mines—the latter with
worn-out shoes, sad expression of countenance, toru punts and empty swag. Most of
those returning report unfavorably of tho
mines.
Notwithstanding the bad reports constantly
coining in, men daily leave with full swag and
jaunty air, and an apparent determination to
sit least see the "elephant," though, by-the-by
said animal frighten scores of them so much
that they dare not go within twelve miles of
him.
The Government trail from this place to the
Columbia river is not expected to be fit for
animals for a month yet. About 24 miles of
it is now in good order, and about twenty
animals have started for about that distance,
nnd no doubt they will get through to the 21
mile post without much difficulty.
Business at Seymour.
Stocks large, prices low, and little business
doing, consequent on three things: The Forty-
Nine getting up to the foot of Death Rapids—
the want of confidence men now exhibit respecting the richness ol the Big Bend mines—
and men coming up here with two or three
times more grub than they can puck and
selling it for any price they can get at Seymour. Prices at Seymour: F'otir, 16 cents;
Jwco-M," €0 eeuts;-sugar, 37^ cents; tea, $1;"
beans, 22 cents; yeust powder, 75 cents per
box; dried apples, 50 cents; cotfee, $1;
tobacco, $3 to §3 5(1; drinks, 25 cents; picks
and bandies, $4 5ii; shovels, $3. Flour, it is
expected, will be sold at Wilson's Landing for
3d cents per lb.
Doubtless ere this reaches you a number of
men will have returned to Yule, giving most
lamentable accounts of what they term the
"Biir Bilk." If you should converse with any
of these disappointed individuals, I would
suggi'8', amongst others, the following questions.: Did you go to the diggings? What
creek were you on—French, McCullough's,
Camp or Carnes? Did you sink any holes?
liid you fairly prospect any? What length of
time were you at the mines? Had you sufficient means to test the ground? Is not the
reason you returned so 60on this—because you
wete on the mines too early ?
J suggest the above questions because many
of ihose returning have never been further
than Seymour; many more have been only to
Wilson's Landing, (12 miles from French
Cre«k), and some have been on the creeks,
and finding them staked off for a great distance, and plenty of snow on the ground, have
returned disheartened. Some came with the
idea that these diggings were surface diggings,
and only brought just enough of money to
see them to the mines, stay there a day or
two, then find botli grub and money gone,
have been forced io return. And there's the
rub. These diggings were reported "surface
diggings" and falsely so, as many men
now know to their sorrow. Several shafts
have been sunk to a depth of from 10 to 4<>
feet without coining to pay, and have had to
be abandoned in consequence of the men's
grub and money running out. It is this fact
that is the chief trouble with the men here
as all can testify who have seen it. I came
down in a boat from Wilson's Landing to
Kirby's (26* miles) about a fortnight ago, but
we took care to let the boat down through
the rapids, all of which are very dangerous.
Mr. Moberly and party are prospecting for
a trail from French Creek via McCullough's to
opposite Kirby's Landing. When a trail is
made between these places, the dangerous and
expensive method of travel by boats up the
Columbia will be done awav with, and considerably less difficulty will be experienced in
getting to the mines. Freight by boat from
Kirby's Landing to Wilson's (20 miles) is 7 cts.
per lb. So from this you may form an idea
of the difficulties of boating up the Columbia.
Routes.
Merchants here fear very much that the
cymour route will be a "cave." Query—
Why did not Government start the South Arm
route in preference to this mountain trail?
which, in my opinion, will never be able to
compete with the steamboat route for flour,
bacon, and many other things.
Telegraphic Summary.      |A G00D chance_for prospectors.
CARIBOO MINING INTELLIGENCE.
May 21st, 1866.
Williams Creek.
Since our last weekly report there has been
but little to chronicle in the shape of new discoveries. Most of the claims then noticed
are still at work, and yielding their usual returns. To-day all ground laid over last f.'ll
must be represented or become abandoned,
so that there will be a great increase to working claims this week. There is now plenty of
water, and before the week closes we doubt
whether an idle man can be found on the
whole creek who is able or willing to do a
day's work. Even tho Chinamen, who are
daily flocking in, will bo employed in the
different claims more or less; the Raby Company, it is said, intend hiring 60 Celestials to
work in their open cut. The snow is fast
melting away, but not so rapidly as to create
any undue increase to the waters of the creek.
Among the many companies taking out pay
we note the following: The Moffat Company
washed up on Thursday 12 ounces, and on
Sunday 13 ounces. The Prairie Flower Company washed up this week 100 ounces. The
Adams Company washed up fur the week
$.1200. The Aurora Company nre taking out
good pay still, but we are unable to learn to
what extent.
Wages on Williams Creek rule at $7 and |S
per day, which it is supposed will be the current rate for the season.
Burns Oreek.
The Never Miss Company, in which the
well known Billy Barker is interested, were
working on this creek up to the 7th January,
when they had to stop on account of water;
they run a tunnel 70 feet into a bench some C
feet higher than the level pf the creek, and
lound such prospects as justify them in believing that when water can be had to wash they
rtill make from $12 to $16 a day to the hand,
fhere will be at least six or seven companies
at work ou this bench during the summer.
Antler Oreek.
We learn that Mr. Jennings has commenced
to run a tunnel into the bank near the Bed
Rock Flume Company's ground where he expects to find another channel. Below this
po'nt about two miles, some seven or eight
companies are making preparations for working their gronnd.

on this creek since last week.   The Discovery

The Financial Panic in England,
The financial panic culminated late on
Friday, May 11, in the suspension of Ovennd,
Gurney k Co.; liabilities ten or twelve millions of pound*. Advances were asked from
the Bank of England, but thc Bank declined
to grant any, on the ground that it would be
vain, in a crisis like this, to as-ist one establishment and not be prepared to help other
applicants as well.
On the morning of Friday intense excitement prevailed in financial circles at London,
Liverpool, and other centres.    Business was
almost entirely suspended.   Meanwhile financial  and   most serious disasters were hourly
announced.   The first was the Bank, of which
stock was held by English Jews, for £800,000
sterling ; then that of Pettis & Bell, for £4,
000,000; then W.  Shrimpton,   railway con
tractor, for £200,000 ; final y, nn Association
with a paid-up capital of £25u,00o sterling,
must,   with  extremely  heavy  commitments,
pass  into liquidation.    During  the day the
most intense anxiety was manifested to ascertain if any steps had been taken by the leading merchants and brokers to represent to the
Government the extent of the crisis   and u
false notice on the Stock Exchange that an
extra issue by the Bank to the extent of £lu-
000,000 had been ordered, caused a general
rebound in prices.    Later in the evening if
transpired that Government had r«solved to
suspend the Bank Charter Act.   It was already
known that several failures among dealers will
bo announced in  connection  with  the   approaching half month's settlement on Stock
Exchange.    A large number of country bank'
era were in London to confer with their London agents to provide agaiust all danger from
local runs, both in London and in tiie country.
At Manchester there was a complete panic.
At Glasgow the iron brokers resolved to suspend business.    In Liverpool there was an increased panic at the commencement, on Friday, but less unsteadiness at the cloHe.   Taking
into account the depreciation that simultaneously  occurred in English funds and foreign
securities, the diminution of the market value
of this class of property, since the beginning
of the year, may be estimated to reach £130,-
000,000, to say nothing of losses in cotton
goods and other articles.

The Saturday Review of May 12th says the
It will be seen by the subjoined letter that
a good chance awaits prospectors on Canon
Creek. So far very little work has been done
on the new creek, yet a considerable amount
of gold has been taken out.    We learn from
party at present in this town ti at he visited
Canon Creek in the winter ol 1862, whpn the
snow was on the ground. He prospected a
short distance above the mouih and found
diggings that would pay moderate wagc°. He
has always entertained the idea that further
up the creek there existed good diggings.
Persons who do not like Big Bend should try
Canon Creek:
Mr. Spalding, J. P., to the Acting Colonial
Secretary:
Sir,— I have the honor to forward for the
inspection of the Officer Administrating the
Government, two and one-tenth ounces as &
sample of the gold taken out from the newly
di.-covered cr. ek, as reported in my letter of
the 9ih instant, the exact value of which cannot be ascertained here, but is presumed to be
quite eighteen dollars per ounce.
Thc nature of the diggings from which it
is obtained is what is termed " surface diggings," in no instance huv'ng as yet exceeded
three feet in depth, and they are of a very
considerable extent.
It is, however, believed by the most experienced miners in this part of the country,
that on examination much richer earth will be
found at a greater depth, and to satisfy themselves on this head will be the great object of
the exploration party which will leave here
for the lmality alluded to on Saturday next.
The largest forwarded is a fair specimen of
the gold found, a very trifling proportion being in smaller sized pieces. One piece I as
been sent to Victoria of the value of $150,
and one of $80 value.

Savana's Ferry, 26th May, 1866.
EniTOR British Columbia Tribunk :
Sir,—I read in your issue of the 21st ult.
a letter dated from Savana's Ferry 16th ult.,
signed "Viator," containing some very sweeping remarks on tlie conduct of (he officers
and employees o! the Hudson Bay Co.
Now, let me assur" "Viator" that although
his account of  the  lowering of  the  ferry

that the whole nation is panting for war.
A most daring attempt was made to assassinate Count Bismarck as he was in Berlin.
The assassin fired several shots from a re-
volver, but Bismarck received only a slight
contusion. The assassin was arrested, but
committed suicide in prison.
LETTER FROM TIIE INTERIOR.
contrary is thc case, and are now going away
in disgust.
As fur as the prospects of these mines arc
known, no one can lorm nn idea, as really so
little mining has been done. Most of the men
who came here in March and April merely
staked off their claims nnd spent the rest of
their lime in building cabins, sawing out and
fixing sluice boxes; the snow wad so deep
that it was impossible to prospect, so that for
two months yet nothing will be known of the
prospects of these diggings.
Had it not been for the Forty Nine getting
up from Colville, the men would have Had to
return or starve, for the present trail was
such that packing has cost as much as $1 per
lb. from Seymour to French Creek.
I have been to French and .McCullough's
Creeks, and can assure you that all stated
above is correct.
The Columbia river is a horribly swift river,

the other day. Muir k Co., next to the Short
Bend Company, are running in a tunnel from

second shaft iu their drift and found the rock

in. The trail is in a bad state, and provisions
are difficult to be go in.—[Cariboo Sentinel.

many reports as to this steamer being unable
to get up to Death Rapids on her third trip,

she took eleven days; the second, seven days;
and the third, only six days.

their behaviour towards us.

Canon Crkek.—A new gold bearing creek
ha< been discovered in the Cariboo district by
Chinamen, which has been erroneously called
Canon Creek, there being another well known
creek of the same name in the district. The
new creek is situated about sixty miles above
Quesnelmouth and falls into the Fraser. The
gold taken out is cnarse and rusty looking,
and appears to have been little subjected to
"a wash." The largest piece taken out so
far is worth $14, and it was found only three
r    . ,     ,    ,   , feet below the  tirfnce.    A partv of white men
were beginning to open, so they had plenty of had been organized in Quesnelmouth to pros-

hens and diver ducks might in one haul with
u net.   The way  the  Indians work it is to
stretch  their nets across the  narrow  open
spaces of water between the sound ice on ihe
lakes and the shore, then drive the birds along
with  a canoe, occasionally  tapping on the
canoe with their paddles; the birds start to
fly, skimming along the water and entangle
themselves iii the meshes of the nets.   The
Indians are in "high feather," with plenty to
eat; I found it very difficult to get one of
them to go with my partner and myself acro*s
from Feasor lake  to Babine poriage.    The
streams between here and Fraser lake were
all on the "rampage," we had five rafis to
make—rather perilous navigation across some
of the places—but made the trip without any
accident.   The construction party are getting
along finely with the line, and are now throng!
the worst part of the route between here and
Fraser lake.   I am going out with a pack
train to-morrow.

RETRENCHMENT—WHERE
BEGIN.
NO. I.
IT   MUST
Retrenchment in the public expenditure of
the colony is becoming more a matter of absolute  necessity every day.     Financial difficulties of considerable magnitude are now
crowding on the Government, and placing it
in a position almost akin to bankruptcy.   All
this has been foreseen and pointed out as the
inevitable consequence of the reckless extravagance that has been going on, but without
avail.    Words  of caution  and  advice   from
those competent  to give  them have  been
spurned by those in authority, and the more
economy was recommended the  more was
prodigal expenditure practised.   Just as in
private life such conduct is sure to bring upon
its author a day of reckoning and reribution,
so is it with a Government. Only let an Administration go  on   expending   more   than  its
legitimate income in profligate  waste, and
drawing upon its credit to make up for the
deficiency, and as certain as the day of balancing comes—and that never fails to arrive—the
foundation upon which it had been working
crumbles into  dust  nnd leaves nothing but
ruin behind.    This is just the, case with our
Government; it has been acting like a gambler, rioting in extravagance, over drawing
the account, and finally winding up by finding
its credit stopped and its drafts dishonorer).
We do not  wonder at  the situation; it required no prescience to foresee the goal that
eventually such a course would lead to, and it
has amazed  us for a length of time that the
Bank has gone ou so long indulging the Government to the extent it has done.    Now that
matters have arrived at a crisis,  the  Govern
ment will he compelled to consider its cours*
and mend its ways.   There is not a single de
partment that will not have to come under the
pruning knife  of economical administration,
and what public opinion failed to do, the Bank,
if it continues in its present judicious course,
will force upon our short-sighted Government.
It is not, in our opinion, with police constables and magistrates that  economy   must be
lirst applied, but with the head  of the Government itself.    The people of the colony are
•now pay;ng an absemee Governor $25,000 a
year, a sum which England can only afford to
pay a Cabinet Minister, or the United States
her President.    We do not belong to that
school of economists which would cut down
official salaries to an ebb that the public could
not obtain the services  of  efficient public
servants;   but in   this   colony   salaries   are
altogether  out of proportion  to the services
rendered in return for them, and in an especial
d"greo  is this the case with the hend of the
Government.    How can the Governor recommend economy when his own case is the most
flagrant prodigality of all?    This he cannot!
do, and it is absurd to think that there will be
a reform in the expenditure until the salary of
the head of all the departments is first reduced to a proper standard.    We know it will
he urged that the Governor's salary is only
$20,000 per annum.     We admit that such is
the amount voted for the special object of
paying his Excellency; but there is $5,000
more voted for  "expenses in the interior,"
which we have good reason to believe is not
applied—that sum cannot be applied—to its
ligitimate purpose at all, but to the support of
Ins Excellency's private! yacht.   The amount,
therefore,  which  goes to   the Governor is
$25,000.   This sum must bo cut down, and
here economy must first begin.
THE PUBLIC ACCOUNTS.
Six months have elapsed since the financial
accounts for 1865 were closed, and yet the
audited accounts for that year have not been
given to the public. We have tho highest
opinion of the ability and business energy of
the Auditor-General, and would be slow to
attribute to him the sole cause of the accounts being withheld, but as he owes a duty
to the public as well as to the Government,
some blame rests with him for not producing
the accounts. Under no circumstances should
he be a party to tho  withholding  of the
audited statement from the public. There is
at present a feeling of profound uneasines-
among the community with respect to the
public finances, which, it is believed, are in a
state of complete disorganization. The only
way to relieve the state of suspense now existing and to restoreconfidence, is to place
before the public immediately not only the
accounts of iast year, but a statement showing
the receipts and expenditure up to the 1st
inst. In every othery colony, as well as in
England, quarterly statements are rendered
to the public, and the sooner this practice is
adopted here the better. Let the public, if
you please, have your accounts, Mr. Auditor
General. We know they will not be very
pleasant to look at when they do come, but
nevertheless produce them.

SALE OF TOWN LOTS.
The Government shortly intend offering the
town lots in Seymour to public competition
We think that such a proceeding at present
cannot be justified, as the greatest uncertainty
still exists as to the proper location for a site
for a totfn at the head of navigation. It is
understood that the Assistant Surveyor-General has stated it as his opinion that the road
to the mines will be from the South Arm of
the lake, and every day's experience tends to
confirm that view. We believe that even the
people of Seymour themselves are in favor of
the South Arm, and would not hesitate to
change at ence, if they were assured of there
being a practicable route for all seasons of
the year from that point. We would urge
upon the Chief Commissioner the necessity of
postponing the sale of town lots until he has
made himself master of the situation, and is
thoroughly satisfied about the route. Two or
three months will determine the matter one
way or other, and after the fiat is issued determining the route, the sale can then be
held. The very fact of the Uudson Bay Company not having built in Seymour is sufficient
evidence that they do not consider the North
Arm the best point for a town, and their
great experience of the country cannot be
set aside in an important matter of this kind
Beat it who can.—Mr. James Donnnlly of
Harrisonmouth writes: "I noticed in a late
number of the Victoria Colonist, an account
of a duck having laid upwards of ninety eggs.
All the prolific ducks are not confined to Vancouver Island. 1 have two ducks which have
laid, up to the present time, one hundred and
seventy eggs, and are still laying, each, an egg
a day, without fail. James Doxnallt."

YALE, MONDAY, JUNE 4, 1866~
Accident.—Two men, named respectively
Martin Maichor, a Hungarian, and Martin
Bglliel, a Swiss, left Yale on Tupsday last with
n horse and waggon loaded with sundry
articles and bound for the Big Bend mines.
The following day about 12 o'clock they arrived about 164 miles out on the waggon road.
An Indian woman, who was engagpd in packing, had been resting on the side of the road,
and getting up to resume her journey, frightened the horse so that lie commenced backing. The men were walking behind the cart,
and attempted to stop it by pressing on the
wheels; they were unable, however, to prevent it going over the precipice. The horse
and waggon fell about twelve feet down,
where they vere caught on a tree, but all the
provisions, box of carpenter's tools and other
things full into the Fraser, one hundred feet
below. With the exception of a gun, blankets, and some few trifling articles, the good.-
were entirely lost. All atteinp s to get the
horse out failed, as he plunged so violently as
to kill himself against the rocks. The unfortunate men, who are both poor, feel the
loss very much. They are determined, however, to go on to the mines if they can get a
little provisions for the purpose of enabling
them to proceed The report circulated thai
the men were intoxicated at the time of the
accident we have good reason to b'dieve is
entirely false. Both men bear the reputation
of being sober, steady and industrious. We
hope they will get some assistance to enabl
them to proceed to the mines.
Tns Steamer Marten.—This fine vessel
made her first trip from Sivana's Ferry to
Seymour on tlie 26ih ultimo, and with mo->t
satisfactory results. Gentlemen who made
the round trip in her informed us that the
steamer is a credit to the colony, befog not
only an extremely nice model, but well and
substantially built besides. The following are
the dimensions of the vessel: Length, over
all, 180 feet; width, over guards, 82 feet;
carrying capacity, 100 tons. The men employ, d to build the steamer left Victoria on
the 21st nf January la^t, and after a most
perilous journey and some hairbreadth escapes
on the ice at that inclement season, arrived at
the head of the little lake on the Sth February. For some of the timber used in building, the men had to fro a mile back into the
mountains, and it was not out with no little
difficulty and labor. The timbers used in
shearing the steamer averaged 76 feet Ion?,
10 inches wide, and was 2^ inches thick. All
the ardous labor connected with ^electing and
superintending the getting out the timber devolved upon Mr. McKay, who accompanied
the men from Victoria and remained with them
at the vessel until the lumber was all prepared.
It is the opinion of competent judges that the
Marten will be the fastest, steamer on our inland waters.
From the Big Bend Mines.
LETTER FROM SEYMOUR.
(»ROM    OCR    OWN     COBRRSPONDKNT.)
May 26th, 1866.
The long looked for steamer Murten arrived
at our little town this afternoon at six o'clock.
As she drew near she was grepted with a volley from anvils, guns and pistols, and three
hearty cheers and a tiger from the boys on
the beech.
The Marten is a beautiful model, and as
strong as she is handsome. She reflects grea
credit on the designer, Mr. Trahy, and the
foreman, Mr. Thompson. The engineer, Mr.
Suffren, also deserves praise—in ten days from
thc time the steamer arrived at Savana's
Ferry the boilers and machinery were placed,
the wheel built, and steam on ready to make
her trip on the day named by the Government. She left Savana's Ferry on Saturday
evening at five o'clock, reached Kamloops at
half-past seven, where she lay last night, left
next morning at six and arrived to-day at six
p. m. It is believed that she will be the fastest
boat in British Columbian waters.
The news from the mines, if not very encouraging, is not quite so discouraging as received a few days ago. The water is still
too high to admit of much work being done.
Romano's mill is nearly completed aud will be
sawing in a few days.
The trail across the divide is improving
daily. Seventy-five men are to be put to work
immediately to clear the snow; Mr. Moberly
expects to have the trail clear so that animals
can go through in about ten days. On the
trail from Kirby's Landing to French Creek
one hundred men are at work, it will be com
pleted
$12 to $16 per day to the hand, but on the
lower part of tlie creok nothing has been done
They  are all  preparing, but it will be foui
time before they can get into their claims.
Capt. Donne was reported to have paid $1000
for an interest in a claim on French Creek; I
could not learn the name of the company,
but Jim Gerrald and Jim Orr held interests iu
it. Htege has opened a saloon on French
Oreek.
Prices at the creeks—Flour, 50 to 60 cents;
sugar, $1; tea, $3; butler, $2 60; but little
or nothing selling on account of so many
going down selling out small lots. Flour lias
been selling in tenia for 20 cents; tea, $1;
und bacon, 75 cents.
It is generally believed that the Forty-Nine
cannot make another trip till the water goes
down, but of course that is only supposition;
they said at first that she could not get up at
all, and yet succeeded.
The question of supplies and routes is still
an uncertainty. I do not think there will be
much difference in either. Articles grown or
raised at Colville may be landed in the mine-
lower than by this route.
Of Seymour I do not think I can give you
any further particulars. Provisions very
low aud little selling. All the buildings erected are occupied, but no more are
being erected. The place has received a
heck and everything is at a stand-still.
Parker is moving into his new saloon ; it is a
very nice one. This is the hardest place to
get anything like reliable news that I ever
struck. One man will come in cursing the
country up and down, swear that it is not a
gold country, and that paying diggings never
can   be  discovered,   that the creek

ported here that Mr. Moberly has stated that
the route to the mines will be by the south
arm, and that Seymour cannot be the town.
In the face of this assertion, why does the
Government persist in laying out town lots,
thereby encouraging men to expend their
labor and means iu erecting buddings and
making improvements? If there be a natural
road by the south arm, with an easy ascent
and good feed for animals, why does not the
Government or Mr. Moberly publish this Information? If that is the best route, the
sooner the change is made the better it will
be for both traders ar.d Government. It is
generally believed here that all information is
withheld till after the sale of lots, which is to
ake place on June 9th. The Hudson Bay
Conipany have deferred building, and it is
said that from their knowledge of the country
they knew that the present route would not
The following extracts are from the private
letter of a man belonging to Yale, who writes
from Steamboat Landing, Columbia river,
under date of May 28d:
We left Seymour on the 17th for Kirby's
Landing over the Government trail, which is
now impassable for animals. For 11 miles
the snow lies from one to ten feet deep. Tb>
packers are commencing to pack from Seymour to the Frenchman's, a distance of 21
nriles; from thence to Kirby's Landing, (16
miles) by Indians; from Kirby's Landing lo
Wilson's Landing, 18 miles by wa'er, from
thence to French Creek, 13 miles, making the
whole distance from Seymour to French
(!reek 68 miles. The Gold on the Columbia
river is fine, and bur. little prospecting done.
There is gold running through the country,
but tlie quantity is yet to bo u^cei mined.
The claims that were working last August and
September are now doing nothing. If something does not turn up in the shape of good
claims or a good prdBpeot, there will not bu
many men left in the country. The Yale
people are all sticldni.' to the country. Steamboat Landing is two miles b' low Death Rapids.
From Death Rapids lo French Creek (22 miles)
there are two houses or log cabins, the one
open and the other closed. The country is
thickly timbered. The weather is very changi ••
able; snow fell In the mountains from two to
three inches during the time we were crossing.
The trail is a good one, or will be when the
snow is off the ground. For my part, I shall
stick to the country until driven out by this
snow. Mr. Moberly and party are doing all
they can to open up the country to the miues.
LATEST.
We received a letter last evening from our
correspondent at Seymour, stating that John
Haines,  Tom  Swartz   and    White  had
found good prospects on a small gulch falling
into McCullough's Creek. There was, also,
some excitement on French Creek about some
new discoveries I here. The Monroe Company
have taken our $12110 this season. Men wero
leaving Seymour daily for the mines. At
latest dates packing was done to the 21 mile
house for six cents a pound.

RUINS   OF   AN    ANCIENT    HEATHEN'
TEMPLE INT HONOLULU.
Near by is an interesting ruin—tlie meager
remains  of   an   ancient  neutlieii   temple—a
place were human sacrifices were offered up
in those old bygone  days when the simple
child of nature, yielding momentarily to sin
when sorely tempted, acknowledged his error
when  calm  reflection had shown it to hitn,
and  came  forward with noble frankness and
offered  up  his  grandmother  as an atoning
sacrifice—in those old days when the luckless
sinner could keep on oleansing his conscience
and achieving periodical happiness as long as
his relations held out; long, long before tlie
missionaries braved a thousand privations to
come and make them permanently miserable
by telling them how beautiful and how blissful
a place heaven is, and how nearly impossible

NICARAGUA AND ITS HISTORY.
Nicaragua is a land of strange nnd exciting
interest. To the geologist, the botanist, the
ornithologist, the naturalist nnd the antiquarian, a large field of investigation is open.
No man of even moderate acquirements can
pass through the country without being impressed with its peculiarities. The richness
of its soil, variety of its verdure, the beauty
of its flora, thc number and magnitude of its
burning mountains, its vast fields of lava, its
inland seas of fresh water, its charming hut
peculiar lakes, its mineral depos'ts scarcely
yet developed, its animal life, its half civilized
native inhabitants, descendants of a primitive
anomalies op Literary History,—One ot
the anomalies of literary history is, that it hits
often been tlie lot of those men who have
contributed largely to the mirth or recreation
of others to endure more than an ordinary
share of misery nnd want in their own lives.
The most entertaining portion's of literature
have been written by men whose hearts have
been bowed down by sorrow, and at moments
when that sorrow has been heaviest. It was
in the gloom of a mother's death, deepened
by his own poverty, that Jtihnson penned the
charming tale of "Rassehis;" it was in the chill
desolation of a bare and fireless garret that
poor Goldsmith, the beloved vagabond of
literature,  sketched   the   highest  picture  of
but advanced  race,  with customs but little jdomestic happiness the world ever had; it was.

to laugh when he reflects  how surprised they
must have been when they got there.    This
ancient temple was built of lOUgh blocks of
lava,  and   was simply a roofless inclosure a

ABOUT It?—During a brief discussion which

from women of New York, in the United
States Senate, in which Messrs. Sumner and
Henderson (both of whom are bachelors)
participated, a senator of Illinois rose and
protested against the discussion in the Senate
of woman's rights by two senators who had
arrived at the uges respectively of 49 and 68
without testifying their admiration of woman
by getting married.
