A literary fjentlcmnn, whose courtesy
in a certain matter a pretty woman hail
rewarded with ft kiss, was so well pleased
witlt the mode of payment, and so little
satisfied with the amount, ilia), judging
bv the following epigrammatic reply, lie
is likely to- prove n rather inexorable
credit or. We don't blnmo bim :
One coin, so delicious, alone
Pays more than you owe me ; and yet,
While you l.ave a mint of yonr own,
Don't ask mi to cauccl the debt I

■ Burton, while travelling on a steain-
boul, seined himself and culled for a beef
steak. The waiter furnished him wilh a
hum II strip of the article. Taking it upon
his fork, and turning it over and examining it, with one of his peculiar looks, lie
uoolly remarked, ' Yes, that's ii ; bring
me some.'
' 1 tell you,' siid a warm friend of a
newly..elected Senator, to an old sober
Jiolitieinn, 'your party may say whit
they please, but cannot deny thai Mr. C
is a sound man ' ' That's just whut we
ure ufeard on,' replied old beeswax ; ' its
our opinion that he's all sound.'
Jenkins thus describe the hongings of
a New York belle : ' She woro an exquisite hyphaluliii on her bead, slide her
train wns composed of transparent. I'd de-
rol, and her petticoat of Crainbainbuli
flounced with Brussels three-ply of A No.

Ne Sutor—A. lady writes to osk us
whether her husband who is by profession
a cobbler, is justified in sitling up all
night in the exercise of his vocation.
He can, at all even's, put in a proverbially philosophical plea—that it is never
too late to men.I.
The Way to be Happv.—The best
way to be Imppy is no', to want anything
until you huvu got It, nnd then bo suving
of it. I'ttddiug and milk nre good things
to have, so one lias not too much of
them.
Miss Thomas, in her Walter Going,
says: 'Women can make one another
miseruhle In such infinites in illy small
wuys that a man can rarely be brought
to comprehend how the business is
managed.'
When Voltaire wns told thnt a friend
of his was studying to become a physician.
lie excluimed, ' Whv will be bo so mad ?
He will have to thrust drugs of which ho
knows but little, into a body of which he
knows less.1
Tho best delcncc of lying that wo ever
read, is the remark of Chnrles Lamb,
related by Leigh Hunt, thut 'truth was
precious and not to be wasted ou everybody.'
Males, says a sweet young ladv, are of
no account from the time the Indies stop
kissing them us infants till tbey kiss them
as lovers.
'What is tho use," asked and idle
fellow, 'of a man working himself to
death to get a liTtng.'
Make no enemies ; he is insignificant
indeed who can do thee no harm.

W. B. Townseod of a son.

th* debate on tbe Ministerial Council
qaestiua came on to-day, when Dr. Dickson

Tha vole was therefore a tie, and tbe
Speaker gave his casting vote against the
amendment, in order as be said that the subject should b* discussed. The House then
want Into Committee on the following resolutions I
Resolved— 1. That th* vital interests of the
colony have suffered and continue to stiller
Most materially for want of a closer alliance
and a greater degree of harmony between the
respective branches of the Legislature than
at present exist.
2. That the elements of the present constitution of the colony prohibit a closer alliance and pierent ihe establishment of such a
degree of harmony between the respective
branches of the Legislature as is essential, in
-•rder to ensure legislation ln accordance with
th* w*ll understood wishes of tbe people.
t. That it is, therefore, npedient and
above all things advisable in the present state
of th* country, to amend the Constituiion this
session to as to secure a closer alliance and
.ensure active and harmun'.ous co-operation
between the Assembly, tbe Legislative Council, and tho Executive.
4. That a constitutional amendment be
framed and passed into an Act with substantially the fi.Mowing provisions :
1. That from and after tlie pnssing of this

there shall not be more tkan two of the said

dors, and not leas than three .<! the snid members shall be members of the Assembly, but
at no one time ehall there be more than two
members of the Uxecutivo Couacil in tho said
Ministerial Council.
3. That tho members of. the said Ministerial
Council who may be members of tho AssemJ
t)!y shall, on being nominated aed appointed

Ot Assembly to canry out the measures or
.general policy of the Govern meet, the members thereof shall tender their resignations to

the usages of responsible go-viTument, in such
•C'.sea., aeoept .their recignauonft, appeal to the
country, rccuastraet the said Coancil, oir .dismiss the said Cocncil and nominate another.
5. All vacancies in the said Ministerial
Council shall, from time to time, ns occasion
may require, be filled by the Governor with
«11 reasonable depatck.

to explain the saute, and with a respectful request that His Excellency '.he Governor and
his official advisers may be pleased to concur
with this House respecting the proposed constitutional amendment.
Dr. Ash moved tbat the Committee "rise"
—which was carried. Tho resolutions are,
therefore, killed.
Natal.—We learn that Commander Fox, of
II.M. gunboat Forward will return homo by
the Sparrowhawk, which goes down to San
Francisco shortly to go on the dock
at Marc Island. The gallant officer has
been on this station for several years, and his
many friends will be glad to know that he
will probably return again in a year or two.
Thi Murder Casi—Tim, one of the Indian
witnesses io the recent murder case, was today aent up to the higher court for perjury iu
tbo evidence given before the police court.
Mr. Superintendent Hankin and Thomas Wilson, a witness in t'le case, were bound over
in $500 each to prosecute and give evidence
at bit trial.
I'ublic Ilejoiciugs ou tbe success
or tbe itluiilie Cable.
The popular demonstrations last night to
celebrate the successful laying of the Atlantic
submarine cable, exceeded anything of the
kind that bas yet been witnessed in Victoria.
Although the proceedings were necessarily of
an impromptu nature, public sympathy could
not have been more universal, nor the general
rejoicings more enthusiastic had the grand
event been fixed for a week beforehand. The
special telegram to this journal announcing
the glorious news arrived here about ten
o'clock a.m., and at twelve a meeting of citizens was convened and the committee of gentlemen appointed, to whose energetic efforts
the town Is much indebted f. r the success of
the demonstration. The firing of a salute of
60 guns at 6 o'clock announced that the programme bad commenced, and shortly after
7 o'cloca crowds began to assemble In Government street to take part in the procession.
The Volunteers, with their band at thiirhead,
formed in front of the Bank ol British Columbia, and about half-past seven started for
the Government I uildings, followed by tbe
Firemen, who mustered strong and formed an
important feature In the gathering. A great
crowd Of ladies and geut.cmcu accompanied
tbe procession to James Bay, and when the
assemblage drew up In front of ihe Government House there must have been at least
1,000 persons prcsmt. His Excellency and
family drove up ou the ground immediately
after tlie procession arrived, and were well
received. His Worship tbe .Mayor then
stepped on the platlorm, and after a few introductory remarks read the glad tidings that
pence had been declared on the continent—an
announcement that was received with loud
cheering. His Excellency then addressed the
assemblage, alluilinR to the occasion as the
happiest moment of bis sojourn in the colony.
His speech was received with loud cheers.
He was followed by Chief Justice Needham,
U. 8. Consul Francis, Colonial Secreiary
Young, and Captain Lang, V.U.V., all of
whom were heartily received and loudly
cheered.
His Worship then proposed three cheers fot
the Queen, which were followed by three for
the President of the United States, for the
Governor, Cyrus W. Field, and for the commercial success of the great undertaking.—
The firemen then lighted tbeir torches, and,
preceded by the volunteers, marched back to
town. A I,use bonfire had been lighted, and
with the display of lireworks and torchlights,
Government squnre presented a most am.
mated appearance.
On reaching town the firemen were liberally
treated to clLampngne nt the Colonial by Capt.
Stamp, and the cable was pledged in brimming
glasses throughout the city generally. The
utmostentbusiasm and hilarity prevailed, and
the  whole proceedings wero most creditable
to the inhabitants.
Tub Mount Baker Explorers—Dr. Brown
and Mr. E. T. Coleman returned from Puget
Sound by the steamer Josie McNear this afternoon. The party consisting of the two gentlemen tamed and Judge Darwin of Washington Territory, started up Skadgett river on
tho 21st instant, and travelled for a week up
the valley with a parly of Indians from the
coast. On arriving at tho mouth of Yukul-
l«m or White Stone river, which flows from
Mount [taker, where it was necessary to procure additional guides, the Koma Indians living infbat neighborhood refused to allow any
further ingress to their country. Finding it
impracticable to come to terms, the party
were obliged to abandon that route. They
will however leave by tho McNear on Thursday for Port Townsend, and will attempt to
reach the mountain by way of Bcllingham
Ray and the Nootsac river. Dr. Brown will
not accompany the expedition, being under
engagement to return to England by the next
steamer, but the party will bo reinforced in
all likelihood by Gov. Pickering and Hon.
Ed. Eldridgc, Speaker of the Housp of Representatives.
St. Louis College.-—The. Alexandra today carried up to New Westminster the
clergymen who formerly managed tho St.
Louis College, and who we learn are about
to open a similar institution in that place.
The college property in this city hat been
purchased by Bishop Demon, and the school
will be carried on as usual.
From Puoet SoiiKn.—Tho steamer Jotie
McNear arrived this afternoon from Puget

Farther Point. Jnly 25.—The Hibernian brings dates to November 16. It
is now declared in diplomatic circles at
St. Petersburg that Russia will not
abandon her neutrality, nor allow intervention. The Moscow Gazette expressed
sympathy with tbe Italian cause, and says
Italy must have Rome.
The Prussian headquarters were at
3ruun with a second column at Iglau
marching rapidly on Vienna.
The Prussians overwhelmed the Federal
army in battle at Sscba&enburg in Bavaria, on the 14th, aud were marching on
Frankfort. Tbe Federal Diet had removed to Augustenberg.
General Cialdini had occupied Vicenza,
cutting off the Austrian troops in Venetia
from succor unless be be dislodged,
The London Times believes the discouragement of the Austrian army by
their repeated losses in Uobemia will
deter the Emperor from a final encounter
so close to his capital, and trusts that
before the Prussiurn shall he ready for
the onset an interview between the
tnonarchs will take place, which might
bettor have been held the day after the
disaster at Konigsgrutz. Tbe Times of
the26th says whatever forces the Austrian
Government mny have succeeded in
gathering aronnd Vienna, it is still doubtful whether it will find itself equal to the
task of withstanding victorious Prussians,
who, according to ull calculations, shonl.l
assemble before Vienna tomorrow, or the
d iy after; if it were needed to render
the Austrian position hopeless it was
tidings of the irreparable disaster at
Schuffenliurg, which must have reached
Vienna, preceded by a deputation from
the Vienna Municipality enquiring tbe
Emperor's pleasure in regard to the defence of that ciiy. The Emperor at once
removed the people from apprehension by
answering that Vienna should be treated
as an open city, and added he wonld
limit the operations to the defences of the
line of Danube, which might bring a
Prussian attack on Fladeroff Village,
tbree miles from the gates of Vienna,
where the Austrians have entrenched
their camp. Should the Prussians, however, resolve to attack Vienna they would
certainly attempt to cross the river in
several places, and in case of success the
open city would unavoidably fall into
their bands.

TPEsUAV  EVENING, JULY 31, 1666.
AW EXPOSITOR OF LAW.
Tbere is a melancholy spettacle io the
blind leading the bliod, and oar melancholy is in no way reliered by the knowledge that tbey will both " lull into the
ditch.'' Our morning contemporary is in
the presumptuous position of the blind
guide, bat fortunately he has no one to
lead, and we are therefore saved the
painful sight of ignorance taking ignorance in hand and rolling into the mire.
No one can say tho " Colonist Chronicle ''
misleads bim, because no one is at all
affected one way or other by what the
Coloniit-ChronicU says. A journal that
is ignorant of the laws which affect the
country in which it is published, and that is
unable to interpret them when they ure placed before it, is surely of ell presumptuous
guides, the blindest. Our contemporary,
after making the silly stitei»ent thut (h.
" Gorernor'n Instructions'' is the Constitution of our colony, and after baring in-
ignorance exposed by the publication ol
an Imperial Act giving cobnies power to
make their own constitutions, like ignorance all the world over has not the moral
courage to acknowledge his error, but
seeks by making even greater blunder*.
to cover bis confusion. In our article on
Sunday morning we published clauses ol
the Imperial Act bearing on our present
political situation—clauses which showed,
as clear as English language cun show,
that a colonial legislature can, by enactment, set aside every instruction of the
Qorernor but that instruction giving him
power to assent or refuse his assent to a
bill—a power which must so long as the
kingly prerogative exists, form part of
•rery constitution under British rule.
Tbe Colonitt-Chronic'e however reads the
clause otherwise, and to prove itself right
end) tbe quotation in the middle, by
which it would appear that the colonial
act cannot interfere with "Letters Patent." This reminds us of a story told
of Dean Swift whose antipathy to the
fair us led bim to preach a sermon showing that it was next to impossible for a
woman to get to heaven. The celebrated
divine took bis text from Revelations,
xii. chap, and 1st verse—" And thero appeared a great wonder in heaven; a
woman clothed with the sun, und the
moon under her feet, and upon her head
a crown of twelve sturs." Ignoring
punctuation and the continnation of the
sentence, as our contemporary does in its
interpretation, tbe Dean selected for his
text the first part of the sentence thus—
"And there appeared a great wonder in
heaven; a woman''—clearly showing that
a woman in heaven was an extraordinary
spectacle. We are afraid, however, the
satirical gentleman did not make many
converts to bis theory on that particular
occasion, and we are even a little more
dubious of our contemporary's success.
To show tbe plight into which the latter
bai fallen we give tbe full quotation from
the Act.
" No colonial law, passrd with tbe concurrence of or assented to by the Governor of
anj Colony, or to bo hereafter so passed or
assented to, shall be or be deemed to hare
been void or inoperative by reason only of
any instructions with reference to such law
or tbe subject thereof which may hare been
given to inch Governor by or on behalf of
Her Majesty, by any instrument other than th
Letters Patent or inttrument authoriting such
Otverntr to concur in passing or to assent to
laws tor the peace, order, and good government of such Colony, even though such ins'rue-
tiont may be referred to in such Letters Patent
or last-mentioned instrument."
No language can be clearer than this.
The Colonial Act is unmistakably Bhown
to overrule every iustruction but that
authorising tbe Governor to refuse or
assent to a bill ; and so particular is the
Imperial Act on the question that it adds
" even though ench instructions may be
referred to in such Letters Patent or
last-mentioned instrument." The Coloniit-ChronicU however, finishes iu quotation at tbe word instrument in the tenth
line, and of course sagely concludes that
tha Colonial Act cannot tonch " Letters
Patent or Instruments." We defy the
whole range of newspaper literature to
produce an equal to this.
Tbe genins of the Colonist-Chronicle
however, is net confined merely to inter-
pretating clauses of acts of Parliament,
It bas got Johnson's power of definition!
Tha people of the colonies, as well ns
Anglo-Saxons generally, have been laboring under the delusion that the Legislature of a country means the power that
makes the laws ; bnt our contemporary
acts them right by informing them that
the Legislature means only one body of
the law-mukiug power—tbe House of
Assembly. The Imperial net gives every
colony possessing a representative Legislature " full power to make laws respecting the constitution, powers, and procedure of such LegiBlaUre ;" and tha Colonist-Chronicle in iU wisdom informs iU
readers that this only alludes to changes
in tbe House of Assembly. We will say
nothing of tbe editor of a pnblic journal
gravely telling iU readers that an Act of
the Imperial Parliament was passed last
year to give Houses of Assembly in colonies power by local act to regulaU the
number and qualification of tbeir mem.
bers,—a power that bas belonged to
tbem from their very existence ; but for
a person in his position to show 80 pross
an amount of ignorance as uot to know
that tbe term Legislature includes all the
brunches of the law making power, if
there were fifty differently constituted
legislative bodies, is really beyond credibility. It is difficult to teach conceited
ignorance ; but onr contemporary will
find out when probably too late tbat bis
vocation is to learn, not to instruct.
