The   Derby.
Tbe following account of this great
national event is condensed from a late
English paper:
On the Derby-day tbe inveterate racing
or betting men are a small minority at
Epsom. Probably 19 out of 20 people
on the coarse know very little about tbe
horses, and care very little which of them
wins. But in the " ring'' the betting-
maii has his little world, aad there is supreme. Tbe first race is run, nobody pays
much attention to it. Rut when, very
soon afterwards, tho bell rings for the
great event, the air becomes vocal with
offers to lay against everything in the
race, to lay against particular horses in
the race, to lay on the field, to accommodate you in any conciivable way wilh the
odds then current. Men with queer hats
and neckerchiefs of glaring colors bellow
out invitations of this kind till tbey
nearly deafen you. Some have their
names and address priuted in gold letters
upon tbeir hatbands as a guarantee of
substance and good faith. Others, perhaps better known, roam about, bettiug-
book in hand, without any such meaus of
identification. All invite you to deposit
with them sums varying from JE5 upwards
on the assurance that, if the horse you
fancy wins, tboy will repay you the odds
which fchej offer. Tbey seemed to fight
shy of Lord Lyon, but they were never
tired of " pelting" Rustie and Redan.
" I'll lay five to one, bar one.'' " I'll bet
against Blue Riband." " I'll lay against
Vespasian,'' as pronounced, Vespassion.
" What horse do you want to back, Sir V
" Is there any horse you fancy, Sir V
These were some of tbe endless cries one
heard, in every variety of tone and of
accent, cockney and provincial.
Above all this hubbub rises the great
roar of tbe crowd outside the ring. And
to all pavo absorbed bookmakers this
sound, end tbe spectacle of thousands of
men clustering upon tbe bill side opposite
the Grand Stand, or rnnged by this time
in long dense lines on either side of tbe
course, has in it something almost majestic. After tbe nsual rush to tho paddock,
where the knowing ones make tbeir last
observations and gather materials ou
which to found their last bets, the excitement increases. Lord Lyon is tho first to
show in tbe course. The favorite seems
in perfect condition, and "lie doesn't
run ; he flies," is the criticism passed upon
biatrial canter by one of his admirers.—
To the uninstrncted oyo the same favorable criticism might be passed upon other
horses which gallop past, full of fire, and
hardly seeming to touch tho ground.
They are soon gathered in a cluster at the
starting-place, but much time is spent,
and six or seven false starts are made,
before they get fairly off. Then tbe whole
six and twenty toil up the hill, and only
practised eyes with good glasses to help
them can tell how the race is going. The
few who can distinguish colors at this
distance proclaim aloud tbat Blue Riband
is leading ; that the favorite has now deposed bin) ; tbat Rustic is in waiting, not
to be shaken off; and that Knight of the
Crescent, Redan, and the Bribery colt are
well to tbe front. Then the horses are
seen emerging into the straight run home,
and glasses are put aside, for now most
people who' hope to see anything can see
for themselves.' As the rush comes nearer,
and tbe clatter of hoofs begins to be
heard, a horse with nnfamiliar colors is
seen where the favorite had beeu and
ought to be. A cry is raised, V Bribery
coll wins, by Jove!'' And amid tbe
feverish excitement that now prevails it
certainly looks as if the " dark1' horse is
to carry off the great prize of the turf.
Bnt now the jockey with the black jacket
and scarlet cap is seen making his effort,
and gaining gradually upon the horse
which alone remains between hit i and
victory. " His lordship is too late,'' several voices cry, and so really he appears
to be. The colt has plenty of running
■till in him, bat Lord Lyon has more, and
drawiug up head to bead with bis dangerous rival, as tbe two pass tbe centre of tbe
Grand Stand, is in tbe next breatb bailed
the winner by a short bead. Rustic, a
big, showy horse, from which one would
have expected better thioga, comes in a
bad tbird ; Knight of tbe Crescent a good
fourth.
There was less excitement thau usual at
the close of tho race, for the victory of
outsiders is more of a surprise than tbe
victory of favorites, which comes pretty
much as a foregone conclusion. Mr.
Sutton received with entire equanimity the
congratulations offered to him. Coolness,
iudeed, is tbe characteristic of the veteran
turfite, who wins or loses with eqoal imperturbability. Tbe value of tbe stake,
was £7,550. According to Benson's
" Chronograph" the race was rather a
slow one. It occupied 2 min. 49 sees,
while tbat of last year was run in 2 min.
45£ sec. ; and that of 1864 (Blair Athol's
year) in 2 rain. 43£ sec.
The weather, unpromising at first, improved in tbe afternoon; there was no
rain ; bnt the Derby Day of 1866 will be
remembered as a cold, uugenial one, even
for May.
The following is a detailed description
of the racing :—

A Ntw and Grand Epoch in Medicine I—
Dr. Maggiel is the founder of a new Medical
iiysli'iii. The quantitariam, whole vast internal dotes enfeeble the stomach and paralyze
tbe bowels, most give precedence to the man
who restores health and appetite, with from
one to two of his extraordinary Pills, and
cures the most virulent lores wilb a box or so
ol his wonderful and all healing Salve. These
two great specifics of the Doctors are fast superseding all the stereotyped nostrums of the
diiy. Extraordinary cures by Magglel'i Pilli
and Salve have opened the eyes of the public
to the inefficiency of the (so tailed) remedies
of others, and upon which people have so long
blindly depended. Maftgiel's Pills are no ot
the class that are swallowed by the dozen, and
of which every box full taken creates .an absolute necessity for another. One or two of
Maggiels Pills suffices to place the bowels in
perfect order, tone tbe stomach, create an appetite, and render the spirits light and buoyant I There is no griping, and no reaction in
the form of constipation. If the liver is affected, its functions are restored; and if tbe
nervous system is feeble, it is invigorated.
This last quality makes tho medicines very
desirable for the wants of delicate females.
Ulcerous and eruptive diffuses are literally
extinguished by tbe disinfectant power of
Maggiel's Salve. In fact, It is here announced
that Maggiel'* lillloiM, Vynpeptlc

LAND LIBELLER*.
The law of libel is a very necessary pro.
tection against malicious assertions tending to damage tbe reputation or character
of the individual. It is a wholesome law;
for in this gossiping world, whore the insidious stab is more frequently given by
the tongue or pen than by the stiletto—
where the slanderer, male as well as female,
ejects his venom like tbe snake, from bis
mouth—some protection is demanded for
society. The law, however, is too restricted, its operation too confined-
There are other things, whose fair fame
requires the sheltering regis of tbe Statute
just as much as individual character—
there are other reputations as well as
those of men and women that demand
protection from the libeller—reputations
with which Ihe material well being of
both men aud women are closely interwoven—we mean tbe reputations of countries. Few greater enemies to mankind exist than tbe man who, whether through
ignorance, malice or selfish ends, slanders
tbe character of tbe land in which be
lives ; for once it goes abroad that a new
country haB this drawback or that—an
impenetrable forest or a barren soil—is iu
fact "a bowling wilderness/' unfit for
human settlement—its prosperity, if not
indeed its hopes, is from that moment
blasted. In Vancouver Islaud and British Columbia we have had many such
libellers, and amongst men high enough
in position to give tbe falsehoods weight.
We have had the assertion made over
and over again in our Legislative halls,
and especially in tbe Upper House, that
the country can never bo an agricultural
country—that the little good land on the
Island is so meagre in extent as to justify
nothing like an agricultural immigration.
As the slanderer of individuals has generally some base motive in the traduction of
the character of his neighbor, so these
land libellers have In mostcates an ulterior
object in view in maligning the reputation
of the country. As a general rule they
are what is l'nowa as land speculators, or
men who bold large tracts of land in an
uncultivated state, and t.'ho desire that it
should be universally believed tbat there
is very little agricultural land ou the
Island, and tbat little in their possession.
They are opposed to making roads
through the interior, although tbey have
succeeded admirably in having good high*
ways made at the public expense through
their own property. It is useless to tell
these men that their conduct, besides its
criminal character in not only defaming
but incarcerating nature, is an unwise one
for tbeir own interest in the end. Avurice
is not always guided by judgment; in too
many cases it is tbe narrow-minded seU
fishness which, like " vaulting ambition,
overleaps itself and falls ou tbe other
side."
It is only a few days since some of our
most enterprising citizens were made to
feel the force of such ideas as the foregoing. An intelligent and prominent citizen
of Portland came to Victoria on butiuess,
and while hero happened, in the compuuy
of several gentlemen, to express himself re.
gretfully tbat a country having such mng-
nificcnt Bconery, and sn beautiful a cli-
mali', should bo so destitute of agricultural
land. Tbe latter assertion brought speedily
a negative rejoinder, wbon tho gentleman
replied—" Why, I have it on (be public
statement of your legislators, your commercial men and your officials." In
order to disabuse the mind of tbe
Portlander, bo was taken tho following
day into the country and shown
the smiling fields wherever industry put
forth its hand, and tbe thousands and
thousands of acres of equally good land
locked up in the dismal embrace of the
speculator. He was perfectly amazed, as
every visitor is at the appearance of the
country, declaring that Oregon had
nothing superior to it. And yet here we
are to-day witnessing the bone and sinew
of the colony leaving, while not a conple
of miles from Victoria the most fertile
soil is kept grimly fast in [the clutches
of these arch-fiends, and its fruits
lost to mankind. We have many
complaints, and valid ones, to make
against the Government; we are compelled for the sake of truth and even
expediency to publish them to the world ;
for it would be ruinous to the character of
tbe country if it went abroad that people
were leaving the Island through other
than political evils—but this particular
one rests on the head of tbe people themselves. It is they who have been supine, and who have held back their
strength when the Interests of the
country demanded that tbe wbole edifice of our rotten system of Government shoold have been shaken to tbe
ground rather than tbat the population
should be ruined and driven from the
country. Now is an opportune moment
for making a clean sweep of all our evils,
and tbe accursed system of keeping the
lands of the colony locked up in their
primitive condition, while tbeir owners are
libelling the character of tbe rest of the
Island, is oue of the foremost that demands extinction.
HOUSE OF ISSEMBl Y.
Tbe House of Assembly met today to
discuss Governor Kennedy's message to
the House. Dr. Dickson brought forward a scries of resolutions, drawn np by
an informal committee, in reply to the com.
tnnnioMon, which were taken up seriatim.
Objetrnon was raised by some members
against the words "peculiar and extraordinary," which were applied to the mes"
sago, and a rather heated discussion arose,
in which Mr. Pidwell charged Dr. Dick-
pon with making use of " back stairs"
influence and avowed himself the "Governor's apologist." The majority maintained
that His Excellency's statements were er
roneoos, but agreed to the expunging of
tbe words referred to. The other resolutions were brought forward, wben one or
two were erased end some slight alterations made in the remainder. The reply
points out the irresponsible and cumbrous
nature of the constitution of the Island,
by which the House is precluded from obtaining proper information from the Exec,
utivc, and by which the measures of the
Assembly can be and are persistently
thrown out by the Upper House ; it alludes
to the proposition of the Assembly for tbe
establishment of a Ministerial Council,
made up of members of the Lower and
Upper Houses, but which pioposition was
refused by the Governor. His Excellency
is then told tbat if be was displeased at
the action of the House, he should have
dissolved that body and had a general
election. The reply takes up His Excellency's assertions with regard to the hostility of the House, and refntes them one
by one ; it next shows that it is theobstruc-
tive character of the Council that prolongs
the legislation of the country, and advocates as the only remedy for our political evils responsible Government. Tbe
action of the House during the early part
of the session it says is sustained by tbe
people, ns the election of four members
the present session, and their conduct in
tho House abuudantly testify. Altogether
the reply is a very comprehensive document—states nothing but what is trne,
and is only faulty in being rather long.

half-put ten o'clock. Tho Victoria eleven
will consist of Messrs. Cbas. Clarke (captain),
Richardson, Howard, Joo Hamuli, Wallace,
Whittakcr, Fowler, Callingham, Powell,
Bacon, and Joe Wilson. The navy eleven will
be made up from the Sutlcj and .Scout, and as
both teams are very strong, we look for a well
contested and highly interesting game. There
will doubtless be a large attendance of ladies
and other spectators to watch the game.
FoBNiwWtsTKissTta.—The steamer Alexandra sailed for New Westminster to-day, at
11 o'clock, with a few passengers and about
20 tons of freight.
FacioiiT to San Fbancisco—Mr. B. B. Marvin has placed the new schooner Minerva on

a fine new schooner which recently arrived
from tho Sound to be fitted up in this port,
and will probably Bail about tbe  1st August.

disturbar.ee between the troops nnd the mob.

office will be open from 7 to 8 a. m. Wills,

Sopbbmb Coobt—The Fideliler-Alcxandra
case occupied the Court all to-day. The
Owners of the former vessel claim a balance
of $11,000 still due, the verdict in the Admiralty Court having been for $111,000 and
the sale of tbe Alexandra having only realized
$o,000. Tho evidence iu the previous suit
was being read over to-day and some of the
witnesses re-examined.
Th« CouNTtnvsir Cois Casi—I'eppf nbergcr
and Kemper, tho two persons charged by
Friday, an Indian, wilb passing counterfeit
money to IndianB for skins, were brought up
to-day on remand. Mr. Ring, instructed by
Mr. Bishop, appeared for the accused. The
evidence for tho prosecution having broken

correspondent says : A petition signed by
nearly two hundred has been lent from here
to the Legislative Council, praying that tho
bill lately passed by the Assembly to legalise
the Bale of liquor to our naiive Indians be
disallowed. Several havo declined to sign
tbe petition ou the ground that they thought
petitions did not do any good, 4c, but very
few are found in this community who think
it would not do immense mischief to open
this traffic.
Ma. ZiMf begs ts announce lo tbe inunbit-
ants ot Victoria that he ha- lately received a

Letter from   C'arnes'  Creek.
We have been favored with a copy of
tbe following letter from a Victoriau on
Carnes Creek to a friend in this city.
Cabnis Cbixe, Columbia Riv ib,
June lit, 18 .6.
Diak lbs,
M; son having to go up to French reek
on busin ->b I seize this, tbe first opport nity
tbat I hive had, to send you some little i lfor-
mation abont the Bin Bend. We had n long
and rough trip, and did not reach the Columbia
until the 28th of April, since which time we
have been prospecting until tbe last fortnight,
when we located on Carnes Creek; we have
taken out a few ounces already, but the water
is very high at present and we can't tell how it
may turn ont. There has been about 1,600
men in the country, bnt I don't suppose that
there are more than halt that number here at
present, as usual one-half of the men who
come Into the country ewoar that the mines
are a bilk, and leave without doing a single
day's prospecting. There it nothing more
known ol tbe country than was known last fall,
tbe diggings, as far as is yet known, are very
limited; but 1 have no doubt Ireib discoveries
will be made as soon as tbe high waters are
over bo tbat men can prospect to advamage. I
suppose that you will ba\ l heard of the accidents in Death Rapids. There have been tbree
boats capsized there this spring aod a great
many lives lost. It is very heavy water,aud if
men will persis t in running it when there is no
necessity tbey must take tbe consequences.
There havo been so many men go down the
Columbia lately that tne merchants did not
send up any freight on the s'.eamer this last
trip, and tbe consequence wat thai flour rote
immediately from -tftc to 65c per lb', and other
things iu proportion. In conclusion, 1 should
advise you not to think of coming this way at
present, but I have no doubt that things will
look much brighter before tbe summer is over,
anywa.v. 1 will wiile air/tin as soon as possible
and let you know bow things aregoiog.
FitoM Nanaimo.—Tbe steamer Sir James
Douglas arrived down last night with eight
or ten passengers and a small quantity of
Island produce. Rusiness remains very dull
at Nanaimo, there being no vessels at present
iu ihe harbor.
Tim   Josie Mc.N'iab Tho statement  that
this steamer had arrived at Port Angelos
proves to havo been incorrect. The sloop
Frances, which arrived here last evening in
tbe very short time of 2h. 6m. from thai
port, reports that nothing had been beard of
the steamer and that some anxiety wu» felt
for her tafety. It is probable that she has
been unable to get out over the Columbia
Bar.
Licinsing Cot'BT.—The bench of Magistrates eat again to day in annual licensing
session. The licenses which were opposed
yesterday were approved of, subject to the
reconsideration of Mayor Franklin, who was
absent. Several new country licenses were
approved of and the Court adjourned till
Monday next.

Railroad, Kansas division, having been
completed, the Secretary of tbe Treasury
has ordored an issue of 04,000 bonds to
tbe company. Bonds have also been
ordered lo be issued to tho Central Pacific
Railroad Company of California, one quarter of tbe work on a section of twenty
miles having been completed.
San Francisco, Jaly 12.—President
Juarez, writing from El Paso, June 18, to
Consul Uodoy, informs him that ou the
10th tbe Government would start for the
city of Chihuahua again ; no French or

ger of the return of tho Imperialists.
Commodore Kodgers starts to-day for
the Kast by the overland route.
Legal tenders, 71 J071J.
The telegraph yesterday and to-duy
worked remarkably well, despatches
being received here at au earlier hour than
dated iu New York, owing to difference in
time in favor of this city.
Despatches quote gold at 150. American securities in good demand in New
York this morning, in consequence probably of Earopcan nows.
Nkw Yohk, July 12.—Steamer Colntn
bin, from Havana, 1ms arrived. Reported
insurrection iu Puerto Principe proves a
canard. There was only a slight encounter
between troops and citizens caused by
practical jokes being played on the
former, who were ordered to tako barracks, and serious trouble prevented.
One hundred and twenty Spaniards were
expelled from church In Cuba.
Niw Yobk, July 12th—Tho Post's
money article says there is no scarcity of
gold for delivery. Loans of coin make
either without interest or three or fonr
per cent in favor of borrowers. Foreign
demaud for United States securities is
tbe only feature of interest on exchange-
There is much activity In the loan market.
New York, July IIth.—The Tax Bill
will be presented to tbe President tomorrow for his signature. The President
has been nnwell for some time, which delays the rest of the Freedmen's Bureau
Bill which has failed as yet. Before it
can become law it is stated Seward opposes veto, believing too many vetoes will
have a bad effect. The State Depart*
ment has received no official advices wha t-
ever concerning the reported Cuban insurrection. A Conference Committee
has been ordered on the Bill to quiet
land titles in California.
New York, July lltb.—The Pacific
Mail Company's Montana steamer will
leave here abont tbe 15tb for San Francisco. Three cases of cholera are in this
city ; two in Brooklyn to-day.
Boston, July 11th.—Head Centre Stephens was arrested to day al the suit of
Prescott, who claims $4000 for delivering lectures on Fenianistn, and expenses incurred in tbe excursion to Cam-
po Bello. Stephens appeared in the

amount of $7000.
Omaha, July lltb.—The Legislature
elected under the state constitution of
Nebraska met to-day and elected Ocneral
John M. Thayer and F. Weston Uuitcd
States Senators, both Republicans.
Ottawa, C. W., July lltb.—There
was uu excited session ot Canadian Parliament yesterday. The Opposition assailed the Government with great force

of the insurgents near Neuvitus. Iu the
enmp were 10,000 insurgents, among
whom were many of tbe wi-nlthiest plan
tors acting as officers to their plantation
hands, who were well drilled. They ex
prossed the strongest determination to
throw off the yoke of Spain. After joining forces they marched to within fifty
miles of Havana and foilified. It is
thought a battle will take place in a few
days. On the morning of tie 7th a skirmish took place between the outposts of
the insurgents and tho cav Iry forco of
Spanish. Several were wounded on each
Bide. Tbree Spaniards were killed. The
utmost excitement prevaile I throughout
the island.

march against Chihuahua. Letters from
the City of Mexico state that General

French troops in San Louis Potoai for a
new campaign.
European.
Vienna, June 27—General Benedek's
passive attitude is accounted for by bis
desire to have the Federal troops form a
junction with his army, also to allow tbe
Prussians to advance into Bohemia, so
that he may cut off their retreat. There
is dissension among the Hungarian Liberals—the Deak party being opposed to
insurrection unless the Austrians suffer
defoat, the other parly favoring immediate
insurrection.
Florence, Juno 27—The King of Italy

remarkable increase in activity is observed in the military establishments of

always be obtained at thret or four days
