The Caravan In the Dcitert.
The picture of a riowly-cnmped caravan
in the simmer mouths, und ou the steppes
of Central Asia, is a truly interesting
one. While the camels, in thc distance
but still in sight, graze greedily, or crush
the juicy tliistles, the travellers, even tlie
poorest among them, sit with their teacups in their bunds, and eagerly sip the
•costly beverage It is nothing more than
a greenish warm water, innocent of sogar
and often decidedly turbid; still human
art lias discovered no fond, has invented
no nectar, ■which is so grateful, so refreshing in the desert, as this unpretending
iliinft. I have still a vivid recollection of
its wondcr-wni'king effects. As I sipped
tbo first drops, a soft fire filled my veins,
a fire which enlivened without intoxicating,
The later droughts affected both heart and
head; the eye became peculiarly bright
and began to gleam. In such moments
I felt an indescribable rapture and sense
of comfort. My companions sunk in sleep;
I could keep myself awake and dream
witb open eyes.
After the tea has restored their strength,
the caravan becomes busier and noisier.
Tboy eat in groups or circles which are
hero called kooth, which represent several
houses of the wandering town. Every*
where there is something lo be done, and
everywhere it is the younger men wbo are
doing it, while their elders are smoking.
Here they are baking bread. A Hadji in
ragB is actively kneading thc blnek dough
with dirty hands. Ue has beeu so engaged for half au hour, and still his hands
are not clean, for ono mass of dough cannot absorb the accumulations of several
days. There they are cooking. Iu urder
to know what is being cooked, it is not
necessary to look round. Tbe smell of
Button fat, but especially the aroma,
somewhat too piquant, of camel or horse.
cutlets, tells its own tale. Nor have the
dishes when cooked anything inviting to
the eje. But iu the desert a man does
not disturb himself about such triilus. Ad
enormous appetite covers a multitude of
faults, and hunger is notoriously the best
of siuees.
Nor are amusements wanting in the
caravan-camp when the halt is somewhat
prolonged. The most popular recreation
is shooting at a mark, in which the prize
is always a certain quantity of powder aud shot. This sort of diversion
was very seldom possible in our caravan,
as on account of our small numbers wc
were in continual danger, and had therefore to make ourselves heard us little as
possible. My comrades were accustomed
to pass their leisure time in reading the
Koran, in performance of ether religious
cicrcisc, in Bleeping, or in attending to
tbeir toilette. I suy "toilette," but it
is to be hoped that uo one will here
understand tbo word to imply n boudoir,
delicate perfumes, or artisticul aids. The
Turkomans are accustomed to pluck out
the hair of the beard with small pincers.
As to the toilette of the Hadjis, and, indeed, my own, it is so simple and so prosaic as to bo scarcely worth alluding to.
Tbe necessary requisites were sand, tire,
and ants. The manner of application I
leave as a riddle for the reader to solve.
It is no wonder that the wanderer over
the desert praise the camel as surpassing
all other beasts of the field, and even love
it with an almost adoring affection.
Nourished on a few thorns uud thistles,
which other quadrupeds reject, it traverses the wastes for weeks, nay, ofien for
months together. In tbese dreary, desolate regions, tbe existence of mau depends
upon that of the camel. It is besides so
patient and so obedient that a child can
with one " tshuck" make a whole herd of
tbese tall strong beasts kneel dowu. and
with a " berr" get up again. How much
could I not read in their large dark blue
eyes. When the march is too long or
the Band too deep, they are accustomed
to express their discomfort and weariness.
This is especially the case when they are
being laden, if too heavy bales are being
piled npon their backs. Bending under
tbe burden, they turn their heads round
towards tbeir master ; iu their eyes gleam
tears, aud their groans, so deep, bo piteous, seem to say, " Man, have compassion
upon ns !''—1'he Caravan in the Desert,

aud redress public und private wrongs us
lie had ever faced any enemy.    Wo read
of it all   ns history ; but let  us  Iry und
divest ourselves of this telescopic habit of
lookiujr,  and  como  close  uud  see what
happened in  countries where iiniiies.aiid
those   foreign   uimies,    " marched    nnd
counter-marched,''  or   " halted" awhile
to rest.   Soldiers do  noi  always march
even so rfgulurly as when  we now uud
then sec tbem coniiug home from a review,
•hot und kicking up n dust, and twitching
off a few (lowers' heads  us they go  hy u
garden.   Anyone who has lived in a garrison town will  recollect changes of regiments as involving a lew days of not very
serious but not very pleasant disorder.   Il
in within our recollection that soldiers ou
■the move in England   would como  into a
yard and loud oil' a  wagon und team for
tho diiy'a march, and it was lawful so to
•do ; but they were in their own coitutry,
where they spoke the Innguage, at least, of
the people they disturbed : if they were
overdo, "jolly''- und  riotous, nil reasonable people would  allow for some irregularity when men rest from a long march.
We remember a testy commodore replying
to a clergyman  who  remonstrated  with
him on  the behavior  of sailors allowed
leave ashore when the ship came into harbor.    " J'd like to know, sir, if you'd expect two hundred  and  forty  parsons to
keep order if tbey come into a port ufler
a cruiso.''   Hut if soldiers and sailors (and
" even pitrsOim'')   are   likely not  to keep
up the strictest  discipline when they are
on tho move in their  ovtu country, wliat
is likely to hanpen in a foreign neutral, if
not hostile place,  when  regiment after
regiment,   cannon   after   cannon,   come
through ; regiments that struggle through
-hedges nnd  over fields,  cannon   whose
drivers no   more  respect gardens  than
Peler the Great did Mr. Evelyn's yews ;
over tlie young corn in spring, among the
tempting apple  orchards in  the Bummer,
through, straight through,   the tangled
vinevards   in   the   autumn.      Villagers
frightened leavo their houses to the strangers; the rich think it wiser to open their
gates and dispense unwillingly hospitality
to guests  who  receive  aud  repay it iu
kind, and the work  and the pleasure of
years ia annihilated " all for a famous
victoiy."   Ail   this,  and  over und over
agaiu, Germany has  suffered  within 100
years of this time.    From this it has recovered to be tho prosperous laud we see.

1 Tom Bkowk ' is a Uoxeu.—Of Mr.
Hughes, M.R for Liimlielli, bettor known
ns ' Tom Brown,' Ibe following story is
told :—Mr. Hughes wus one of the
founders of tlio Working Men's College in
Great Ormond-slrcet, uud lie lias always
taken care Unit tlieio should bo a judicious
mixture of piny witli their work. By ibis
menus u gymiiiisiuiu wus fitted up, a
(irii-ltut club got up, uud a hoxiug*cluss established. And tlui.-in who have attained
auy skill witb tlio gloves will agree with
us that sparring is excellent oxorcise, and
that it mny be taken anywhere. Oue
evening when Mr. Hughes was at the
college he looked in upon this class: nn
experienced hand wns on the floor, and
instead of treating the tyros with consideration, be wns knocking them about
pretty considerably, until at lust tliey declined, one and all, going ou with kucIi a
one-sided game. Mr. Hughes hnd been
looking on very quietly, saying nothing;
but ho now stepped forward. ' 1 should
like to have a turn, if yon don't mind,' ho
eaid, in lu'a quiet way. ' Very liuppy,'
snid the other ; ' have you ever hnd the
gloves ou before ?' ' Ob, yes. two or
three times.' They soon stood face to face,
and before his antagonist could say ' Jack
Robinson '—if he hud any wish to do so
— Mr. Hughes sent him sprawling on the
floor. He got up angry, but ' Tom
Brown ' wus cool, and punished him io
his heart's content, and then told him that
be hoped that tho next time ho had to
spar with beginners he would remember
that evening and be tender to them.

The Caravan In the Dcwcrt.
The picture of a newly-ctimped caravan
in the sammer mouths, and nu the steppes
of Central Asia, is a truly interesting
one. While the camels, in thc distance
hut still in sight, graze greedily, or crush
the juicy Hustles, the travellers, even the
poorest among them, sit with their teacups in their hands, and eagerly sip the
mostly beverage. It is nothing more than
a greeni-di warm water, innocent of sufrnr
anil often decidedly turbid; still human
art has discovered no food, has invented
no nectar, which is so grateful, so refreshing in the desert, aB this unpretending
drinR. I have stitl a vivid recollection of
its wondcr-woi'king effecis. As I sipped
the first drops, a soft fire filled my veins,
si fire which enlivened without intoxicating.
The later druu<{lits nfl'eeted both heart and
head; the eye became peculiarly bright
and begftn io gleam. In such moments
I felt an indescribable rupture and sense
of comfort. My companions sunk iu sleep;
I could keep myself uwuke autl dream
with open eyes.
After the tea has restored their strength,
the caravan becomes busier and noisier.
Thoy eat iu groups or circles which are
hero called kooth, which represent several
houses of the wandering town. Everywhere there is somulhing lo be done, und
everywhere it is tbe younger men who aro
doing it, while their elders are smoking.
Here tliey are baking bread. A Hadji in
rags is actively kneading the bluek dough
with dirty hands. He has been so engaged for half an hour, and still his hands
are not clean, for one mns3 of dough can-
oat ubsorb the accumulations of several
days. There they are cooking. In order
to know what is being cooked, it is not
necessary to look round. Tho smell of
Button fat, but especially the uroma,
somewhat too piquant, of camel or horse,
cutlets, tells its own tale. Kor huve the
dishes when cooked anything inviting to
the e)e. But iu the desert a man does
not disturb himself about such trifles. An
enormous appetite covers a multitude of
fanlts, and hunger is notoriously the best
of saucos.
Nor are amusements wanting in the
caravan-camp when the halt is somewhat
prolonged. The most popular recreation
il shooting at a mark, in which the ptize
is always a certain quantity of powder and shot. This sort of diversion
was very seldom possible iu our caravan,
as ou account of onr small numbers wc
were in continual danger, and had therefore to make ourselvus heard as little as
possible. My comrades w«;e accustomed
to puss their leisure timo in reading the
Koran, in performance of other religious
exercise, in Bleeping, or in attending to
their toilette. I suy '' toilette," but it
il to bo hoped that no one will hero
understand the word to imply n boudoir,
delicate perfumes, or artistieul aids. The
Turkomans are accustomed to pluck out
the buir of the beard with small pincers.
As to the toilette of the Hadjis, und, indeed, my own, it is so simple and so prosaic as to be scarcely worth alluding to.
Tbe necessary requisites were sand, fire,
and ants. The manner of application I
leave as a riddle for the reader to solve.
It is no wonder that the wanderer over
the desert praise the camel as surpassing
all other beasts of the field, and even love
it with an almost adoring affection.
Nourished on a few thorns uud thistles,
which other quadrupeds reject, it traverses the wastes for weeks, nay, often for
months together. In these dreary, desolate regions, the existence of man depends
upon that of the camel. It is besides so
patient and so obedient that a child can
with one " tshuck" make a whole herd of
these tall strong beasts kueel down, aud
with a " berr" get np again. How much
conld I not read in their large daik blue
eyes. When the march is too long or
the sand too deep, tbey are accustomed
to express their discomfort and weariness.
This is especially the case wheu they are
being laden, if too heavy bales are bei:ig
piled npon their backs. Bending under
the burden, they turn their heads round
towards their master ; iu their eyes gleam
tears, aud their groans, bo deep, so piteous, seem to say, " Man, have compassion

MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 20, 1866.
Til* Douglas Diggixos.—We were shown I
on Wednesday n sample (2J ozs.) of gold :
from the new diggings ou the Lillooet river,
'it miles out of Douglas. Thc gold was sent 1
down by Mr. J. Franklin, nnd is fine Hour
gold, very similar in appearance to that taken
from the bar diggings of the lower Fraser.
Wc understand the few men who are at work
are well satisfied with the appearance of
things. The miners arc engaged in bringing
in a ditch. The Hon. Mr. Brew bus just
shown us a letter from Chief Constable White,
in which the writer Buys respecting these
mines " there is no humbug at all about the
gold. Berret, Gun-tin and Chapman arc taking
from four to six dollars per duy from the
bench alluded to in my report."—Columbian.
Rogue and V.—Sam Williams, one of tbe
best known habitues of the police dock, was
brought up to-day from remind, charged with
being a rogee and vagabond, and wilh fighting with uiid beating squaws. Sam denied
the chargo of vagruntism, and stated thot lie
had been at work frequently of lata, but the
magistrate said a half-day's work now nud
then would not exonerate him of tlie charge
of having no visible means of support—an argument of which Sam averred he couldn't sec
Oio f»fce. " Ef I seefoah bit," Sam philo-
lophtzcd, "den mils' I lef dot till I see two
dollah? No, Judge, dat wouldn'tdo, no how."
Sam was condemned to three months' on the
chaingang, and was marched off grumbling
against his sentence.
Housn or Assembly.—There was no business done to-day, the only members wbo were
in attendance being thc Speaker, and Messrs.
Young, Dickson, anil Powell. The House
meets to-morrow at 3 o'clock. Th-ere is but
little business to be done beyond deciding on
whit course the colony is to take witli regard
lo the recent reveia ions on the union question—whether wc arc to pray with British
Columbia for a union and Confederation with
the-Eastern Provinces under the cheap rule
of a colonial man ns Lieutenant Governor, or
address a petition to Her Majesty for annexation to the States. Either course will have
to be adopted before the House is prorogued.
Presbktation.—The members oftheWes-
leyan Methodist church, Pandora street, will
meet in the basement of the church this
evening, for the purpose of presenting a farewell address to the Rev. Dr. Evans on tlie
occasion of his leaving this city for Nanaimo.
The address will be accompanied by the gift
of a handsome and valuable silver plated tea
service, wilh suitable inscription. A handsome piece of plate, accompanied by an
address, will also be presented to .Miss Evans,
vrho lor four years bas gratuitously ncted as
organist for the church. The proceedings of
the evening cannot fail to be very interesting.
Lkece Uiver.—Several gentlemen visited
L'cech river on Saturday, returning last night.
They report nothing new at the mines, but
that thc miners express much confidence iu
the country when the ditch is completed.
All thc men working on the diggings seem to
bare gold, and pay their bills in dust. The
accomodation al the Mount Arurat House is
described as very good, but thc charges
higher than Cariboo riites—rather steep for
twenty miles from Victoria, ami calculated
rather to drive away visitors than to benelit
landlords.
A Case of Justice.—A committee consisting, ef Messrs. C. II. Young, Dickson and
Powell was appointed by the House of Assembly to inquire into the alleged unjust dispossession by tho Goverument of Patrick
Brennnn from his farm in Cowicliuu. The
two first named gentlemen met to-day in tlie
Committee Rooms, but owing to the absence
of Dr: Powell they adjourned till  to-morrow.

has been absent on ieavo and drawing half

Chief Clerk of the Colonial Secretary is, like
his superior officer, in another eolony !"
Goon News.—A Nanaimo correspondent of
the Columbian says tho good people of Nanaimo are jubilant over the news received from
England to the effect that thc llarowood mines
are to be opened up nnd worked with tlie
utmost vigor, arrangements lor thc same having boon perfected by the promoters of the
company.
Ret. Da. Evans preached his last sermon,
previous to leaving for Nanaimo, in Ihe
Weileyan church yesterday. Tho church
■was well filled, and tho congregation listened
attentively to a very powerful discourse from
tho text—"Almost thou pcrsuadest me to be
a christian I" Dr. Evans takes his departure
by tho Douglas to-morrow morning.
■Sanitakv.—John Baldwin was summoned
before the Mayor this morning by the Sanitary
Commission for not having removed certain
rubbish from his yard in Pandora street, after
having been notified to do so. His Worship
allowed him two days to remove the nuisance,
and mulcted him in the cost of summons.
The Mail Steamer.—The steamer Active,
from San Francisco, will be due on Wednesday morning, our special telegram to-day
announcing that she sailed on Saturday, at 4
p.m.
Drums.—Two inebriates passed under the
hands of Cadi Pembertoa to-day—James Dil-

the usual penalty of Ss. or six hours' imprisonment.
Island Hay.—The schooner Discovery
brought down a cargo of hay from Cowichan,

Mabhiid Mkn ami Baohblom.—Hufe-
lund regarded married life, and Kent
celibacy, as the more conducive to
longevity. J5oth referred to experience in
inpport of their views ; the one to the
examples recorded of married persons attaining a great uge, and tho other to the
healthy appearance of old bachelors. The
solution of tho problem ia probably to be
found in thn fact, that in tho one case
vital energy is preserved by celibacy, and
in the other the enfeebled frame is
fostered by domestic care. The statisticians
of the present duy tell us thai unmarried
folks hu7c the best of it.—Merlieul Times.
Special Notice*.
FACT3 vs- THEORIES.
"Give tne a place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimedes, " and I will move the
world." " Give mo pure ami unadulterated
drugs," says Medicus, of the olden time,
" and 1 will cure disease."
In one sense, both of these learned pundits
were the veriest charlatans. They knew there
was no place to rest their lever on. either to
move the world or cure disease. Mechanism
was in a backward state, and the medical profession was but auot Iiei inline for sorcery,
and all the adjuncts of magic filters and
charms of the " evil eye," &u<
But these latter days have borne unto us
something more than even superstition and
its crew ever dreamt of in their maddest philosophy. In these days of practical science,
what was theory of yesterday ir fact to-dny,
and all the old tioic notions become as bubbles
in the sun, nnd burst and break with every
breath we draw.
Let Archimedes shoulder his lever and we
will linn a resting place for it to move the
world. Let mino ancient Medicus pant and
toil no more for thn drugs he so sorely needs,
lor we have them at our hand, ever ready to
serve them nt bis beck.
Refined in the laboratory of Dr. MagLiel,
the finest mnleri.ils t-nown In the n.edica] pro
fession are obtainable by nny one. His
Billions, Dyspeptic, and Diarrhoea Pills stand
unrivalled, and his Salve operates with magical effect upon burns, scalds, and all sores nud
ulcers of the skin.
In fnct, we think Maggiel's Pills and Salvo
are tho wonder of Ibis century, and we nre
happy in the thought tbat many others of our
brethren of the craft agree with us. We would
earnestly counsel that all families provido
themselves with Dr. Maggiel's PrepainiionB ai
once, nnd keep them ready at hand, so as to
use them at the most opportune time and as
occasion serves.— Valley Sentinel.

MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 'JO, 1866.
i?niMof;KXiTi'Ki:.
A few issues back  wo staled   Unit the
recent  .session of lite British  Parliament
will be remarkable iu the annals of English history, for the  advanced   doctrines
introduced into -tlie House  of Commons
nud supported  by  somo of the greatest
minds lu England.    We   have   already
alluded lo tho Reform  bill ; but there is
another ineusure which   shows with ail its
iiiisiiccess, a gradual  emancipation from
tbe   ignorance,  prejudice,  and   injustice
which still come  down lo us us a legacy
from^rt'l" ifnt'cs'tors.    Mr.  Bright introduced  n bill  to  abolish tho   almost   infamous law of primogeniture.    Tiie effort
was, as foiirht naturally be  expected, unsuccessful, t,he House refusing by   a vote
of 28itb"84 lo  sustain it ; but  ninny n
owee much more  hopeless than this has
in no great number of years forced itself
ou fSteliiettt,' and it is we believe but a
<|ne9tk>nof very liftle time before the law
of jtuirnogenftule .will cease.    One  good
result in tliiMiiotiou has been to bring the
snbjeet ,prorjMiiently  before  the   people,
through  the daily  press.    Hitherto  tbe
great und unanswerable arguments ngninst
the   law-  Inn-!:  >beeu  coiitiued   t>)   works
whieh nre  not generally iu   thn hands of
even  the reuditig classes.    Mr.   Bright
has, however, removed the seal and to dny,
every feature in tlwease is laid before tlie
entire-population.   Tbe aim of the mover
was merely to provide,  in case tho father
died Hijtestnto, against laud fulling into the
hnn'tls of the eldest son, to the exclusion
of oilier members of the family ; but it is
evident that a much wider sweep in  thc
present laws will have to be made.    The
idea promulgated years ngo  by  political
economists that lund belongs to the state,
and not to tlio individual, is being gradually accepted as the true doctrine by the
most advanced thinkers.    It is. hi fact a
necessity that sooner or later forces itself
on the attention of thc people  of every
country.   In our own little colony, and in
th,e short space of a few years, we find the
usual evil results that How from the  exploded theory that a man can do what he
likes with his  land—we find settlement
retarded, if not indeed destroyed, by tlie
ruinous policy thnt allows men to keep
large tracts of land in a wild and unproductive condition.    In our case tho very
existence of the colony depends on having
the lands open to bona fide settlers, and
the State, which is bound above all things
to guard itself from disintegration, which
ii bound to  preserve the country from
material if not indeed hopeless injury, is
obliged in sheer self-defence to insist on
its right to the soil, and see that the land
is utilised und not wasted.    We have this
advantage over    older    countries.-    In
England the laws of political economy
Me  slow    in   their   dissemination ;    it
requires almost  centuries  to  teach   the
people what is learned iu the colonies in
a very few years.    In old countries truth
has to fight against tradition, superstition
ond prejudice—against, artificial barriers
that are raised bofore it by the privileged
classes at every step ; in new countries
men are compelled, in spite of themselves,
to Qiug away  tho trammels of thut semi-
barbarism  which overruns   tho   half of
Europe iu the form of servility to not only
rank and power, but to tho fallacious nud
humiliating doctrines  put forth  by those
whose interest is to build up  the few at
the expense  of the  many.    Hence nn
ordinary truth  which  penetrates   the unfettered colonial mind, as it were instantaneously, has to work its hard and tortuous
pathway though the  feudal  armor that
still bars the European understanding ou
inattefs' connected   with   the  social   or
political condition of the  people,     This
very question of primogeuitut e was brought
up  during the  last session  of our own
Legislature,—tho  absurdity  as well ns
injustice of the present English law  was
pointed out, and a bill pissed the Assembly rectifying the evil; bnt the Legislative
Council, iu its  parrot-like aping of the
- worst qualities of English aristocracy, rejected tlie measure, on  the ground that
:  it would tend to divide op the lands and
destroy estates !
As we have said, Mr. Bright's motion
■ has bronght this question in all its bearings before the English mind, and ulthough
thnt motion seeks indirectly to break up
the hereditary influence .of the landed
interest in Great Britain, the principle
which it conveys is sustained by all the
principal liberal journals. The Spectator
iu an exceedingly clever article, although
indeed nothing cuu exceed Mr. Mill's
treatise ou the question, exposes the unwarrantable and unjust character of the
present law. " That curious form of
natural selection" it says " hns iu its
favor a thousand years of a history so
grandly successful that the sun never loses
sight of English soil, and one Englishman
iu every five suffers from chronic hunger
—the mental habit of '.be governing class,
a rooted belief that il is essential to an
aristocratic society—and, strange to sav,
a latent, intangible, but exceedingly
potent superstition. Thonsnn.ls of persons will, if strongly pressed, tell you
that the Old Tesiamcut, wliicli from Scth
to Solomon is one continuous record of
the triumphs of younger sons, regards
primogeniture ns divine. The root of
that strange idea is, wa imagine, the
Hebrew order that in the division of an
estate the first-born shall huve not all but
a double portion—a rule possibly based
on the fact that on the father's death the
elder women of the family fell to the care
of the eldest son, who, being burdened
witb their support, received an additional
share.'' Further on it says : " The truth
is that tlio right of property in land is e
right created by the State, aud not by
nulure at all, and tho State has a right to
decide whot law of dos-ent will best contribute to tho general welfare. No law
that outrages thc instinctive sense of justice
can tend lo national welfare, and this law
docs no doubt outrage it. The claim of
thc children, though not absolute, else
thut of natural children would be equally
strong, is good against, all but the State,
and if so, the claim of one must be ns
good as that of another. We all allow
that tho father who makes a favorite on
any but moral grounds, beats one child
for acts overlooked in another, is an unjust
man, and if so, surely ho who pampers
one to starve another is a fortiori unjust
also. The law decrees that, unless very
carefully prevented by formal deeds, that
injustice shall bo committed, and is therefore immoral. Tho immorality does not
consist iu denying Iho claim of the chil.
dren on the father, but in denying that
such claim as exists belongs to one chiid
as much as another. Indeed if a preferential natural right exists, it is that of
the daughters, who are bred np deliber
ately not to work, and then denied the
means   of   living   without   work."
