With grave sorrow Mr. Punch learns
from high authority that thirty members
only of a reformed parliament are compe-
tent'to do a sum in long division. As
Minister of Public Instruction Mr. Punch
therefore deems it incumbent on him to
•compile a " Handy-book of Arithmetic,"
shorn of all pedantic pleasantry, and fur-,
nished witb tables adapted both to the
cross and opposition benches. Peuding
publication of this popular manual, we
offer a few extracts from it, by which the
diligent student will bo enabled rapidly to
cut a figure in any circle—political or
polite.

Tiik Foreisn Element in English
Public Life.—It was a remarltable circumstance that tho very earliest honors
conferred by Earl Russell upon his being
made Premier, were bestowtd upon gentlemen of foreign descent. Mr. Goschen's
grandfather was a Leipsic bookseller; Sir
Francis Baring, now Lord Northbrook, is
the descendant, in the fifth degree, of a
Lutheran pastor nt Bremen, whose son
settled in Devonshire as an English country gentleman, and whoso third sou in
turn founded the mammoth house of
Barings; nnd the ennobled Master of the
Rolls, Lord Roinilly, is the great-grand-
eon of a wax-bleacher in the neighborhood
of London, who was one of a French
' Protestant refugee family expatriated by
the Edict of Nantes. 'I hese honors and
appointments are eminently characteristic
of the catholic character of English
public and sociul life—a feature lo which
much of our national greatness is indisputably attributable.— CatteU's Illustrated
Family Paper.
FACTS vs THEORIES.
" Give me a place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimodcs, " and I will move the
world." " Give me puro and unadulterated
drugs," says Medicos, of the olden time,
" and I will cure disease."
In one sense, both of these learned pundits
Wero the veriest charlatans. Tliey knew there
was no place to rest their lever on, either to
move tho world or cure disease. Mechanism
Was in a backward state, and the medical profession was but anothet name for sorcery,
•nd all the adjuncts of mngic filters and
charms of the " evil eye," kc
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 ol yesterday ir fact to-day,
and all the old time notions become as hubbies
in the sun, and burst and break with every
breath we draw.
Let Archimedes shoulder his lever and we
will find a resting place for it to move the
world. Let mine ancient Medicus pant and
toil no more for the drugs he so sorely needs,
for we have them at our hand, ever ready to
serve them at his beck.
Refined in the laboratory of Dr. Maggiel,
the finest materials known ln the medical profession are obtainable by any one. His
Billious, Dyspeptic, and Diarrhoea Pills stand
Unrivalled, and bis Salve operates witb magical effect upon burns, scalds, and all sores and
takers of the skin.
In fact, we think Magoibl's Pills and Salve
are the wonder of tbis century, and we ate
happy iu the thought that many others of our
brethren of the cralt agree with us. We would
earnestly counsel that all families provide
themselves with Dr. Maggiel's Prepaiations at
once, hnd keep tbem ready at hand, so as to
Use them at the most opportune time and as
•ecasiou serves.— Valley Sentinel.

OF   THE
HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT.
Tlie   effect   Of  the   Ointment   an    the
Syatem
To the very core and centre of all disease;
which affect tbe human body, this remarkable
prepara'ion penetrate.". It disappear! nnder
the friction ot the hands, as aalt disappears
when rubbed u,ion meat. The unguent per*
forms its healing errand rapidly, safely, aad
without pain. Simple eruptions, open sores,
hard tumors, Ecrotuious developments of al'
kinds, abcesses, cancers, old wounes, and, ii
tact, every speci* B of inflammation and suppuration, whether in the skin, the flesh, th*
glands, or among tbo muscles, can be arresteb
in iti destructive course, and permanently
oared without danger by rubbing In this inestimable Ointment.

In many Hospitals in Europe this celebrated
remedy is now used for the cure of old wounds,
sores, nnd ulcers ; in Spain and Portugal, and
in many parts of Italy, the Erst Physician? r«.
regularly prescribe its use. It is ft iovereigp
remedy lor bud breasts and bad legs; and likewise for r.II ekiu disenses. It is to be found iD
tbe chest of nearly every sailor, soldier, and
emigrant.
ltuprudenclei   of   Youth ;—Soree   and
Ulcer..
The above class of complaints is surely r..
ooved by nightly fomenting the parts witL
vtirni wuter, and then by most effectually fub
oing in this Ointment. Persons suffering from
these direful compitiiuts should lose not a mo
meat in arresting their progress. It should bt
understood that it is not sufficient merely to
smear the Ointment on the affected parte, bet:
it raust be well rubbed in for some considerable
time two or throe times a day, that it may 1 i
taken into the system, whence it will remov.
only hidden sore or would es effectually t.
though it wen- palpable to the eye. Bread anJ
water poultices, alter the rubbing in of th.
Ointment, will do great service, This il th^
only proper treatment for females in caiei cl
riuiiir in tho stomach,, or for thole who lufli^
Irom a general heaving down.

When tree-ted in any other way these complaint.
Duly dry rp in ene place to break out in an-
Uher ; whereas this Ointment will removetbr
humor from the system, and leave the patien.'
i vigorous and healthy being. It will rcquirt
.ime, aided by the use of the Pills, to ensure
astlng cure.
Diptheriu,   Brbncliitli,   Soie   Throat*,
Any of the above class of diseases may be
-ured by well rubbing the Ointment three
• imes a day upon the skin covering the throat,
chest, and neck ol tho patient. The nngncnt
will soon penetrnte thc pores and give imtoed^
mte relief. To allay the (ever and lessen th3
inflamatlon, eight or ten Pills should be takes
night nud morning. The Ointment will pro-
duce perspiration, which is so essential tot
remo-ing fevers, sere throats, and those oppressions of the chest which arise fron*

inrariably steal up bebiuj those tliey in—
icinl to attack. I baro, bowerer, baard
tbe following nocount tolil by un old
Malay of an attack wbieli be prerentad
by an appeal to tbe littler nutiire of tlie
.aniiiiul. He was returning homo after a
visit to town to his bouse at Selita, along
tbat part of the road which I have described ns beins tbe most thickly surrounded by jnnglo. Ho bud his little
child, a boy of seven of eight years old,
along bellied hiiu, and both were contentedly ebewing away at jdiong, when the
father on lifting liis eyes bw a tiger
crouching down right iu front of him, nud
apparently preparing for a spring,   Cal*
ling to mind the old laying, be gasped
out a few sounds and found that they
appeared to arrest the titrer, bnt bail g
anxious not to risk the life of liis son, he
moved slowly backward to a tree which
be remembered lo have pawed tt few
yards behind. Tlie tiger advanced upon
bim step for step as he retreated. When
the old man's Ivck touched Ihe tree, be
told hi.s son to climb np. This the boy
did, and Iho lather, relieved of anxiety on
his account, drew b;s wood-knife, and
commenced an advance, urguiug all tbe
whilp wiih the keenest logic—sharpened
•no doubt by the occasion—that it would
-be better for boih lo part without quarrelling. This advance and retreat continued for about 50 yards, when the tiger,
oither persuaded by tho loi^ic or dounted
by tha bravery of the man, tinned tail
anil bolted into the jungle.— Cameron's
Muuiyun India.
■ Oranges at Havana,—How tlwy
mauago to get rid of all those oranges 1
really do not know. I hud a dozen or so
brought me whenever I felt thirsty, and,
I daro say the other guests at El Globo-
wero as often thirsty and as fond of
oranges as I ; and there wero a good
many, too, cut np in the course of tbo day
for tlio purpose of making sangaree and
orange-toddy ; but even afier these
draughts the residue must have been onor-
mous. You wero never charged for
oranges in lbe bill. 'Ihey were as plentiful as acorns iu a forest, and you might
browso on them at will. In tlio streets,
at every corner and under every archway,
sits a ncgress who sells oranges, so they
must havo some monetary value, however
infinitesimal ; but if you bestow on her
the smallest coiu recognised by tlie Cuban
currency you may fill your bauds, your
pockets, and your hat too, if you choose,
witb the golden fruit. When the Cuban
goes to tbe bull-light, ho tukes with bim
a mighty store of oranges tied up in a
pocket-httiilkcrcbief, just us we, when
boys, used to buy a pound of gingeibread-
nuts, moro ns a precautionary measure
than because we were sweet-toothed, on
entering the confines of Orecnwieh Fair.
Some of these oranges lbe amateur of the
bull-fight eats ; but the major part lie
uses as missiles, and pitches into the ring,
at a cowardly toreadores. There is positively a verb in tbe Spanish dittiontrry
signifying to pelt witb oranges.—' A
■Court-yard in Havana,' in All the Year
Round.
Giving a Sitting.—Tn his latter years,
tbo Dulto of Wellington naturally grew
averse to undergo tbe annoyance of sitting
for his portrait, ami of r.uurse the honor
of painting it was cqual'y sought ufter by
ambitious artists. A few years before
his death, to the surprise of his secretary,
he appointed four of these gentlemen for
tho 6ame dny and hour, not appearing to
notice an obsprvation lo thnt effect, when
desiring the letters to be written. On the
morning selected ho went to an upper
room at Walmer, and ordered a tea chest
to be placed on the table, and the. whole
to be covered with dark cloth covers. To
tbis throne he ascended by a chair, seated
himself upon it in the stiffist possible attitude, and desired the artists to be summoned. On their entrance he said, ' Now,
gentlemen, I am to sit here for one hour ;
mako the best of it, nnd set to work at
once.' ' The painters, as soon as they
could restore tlieir open eyes and mouths
to tho usual dimensions, tried to place
themselves in good positions; each
struggling to secure the best place, hut
all in much awe of their silent model, wbo
sat above them taking a bird's eye view
of their muttered contentions.—Memoirs

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.
The Blood.
These famous pills nre so composed tha
they operate wholesomely on the Rtomuch, tho
liver, tho bowels, and other organs; by correcting any derangements in tbeir functions
whereby a steady supply of pure materials tor
tlm renewal of the Blood is furnished, and a
OOOItanf abstraction of elTcte products is effected. This perfect circulation thus becomes
the very fountain of health and life, aud overcomes all form of disease wherever its situation.
General DlNorderH of (he Liver
and Stomach.
All who ever indulge a* tablo, either in cM«
■ng or drinking, should take about ten of thos-
lutnons pills at bed time, from which will ree
suit a clear head and good stomach the foil .w-
ing morning. Thousands of Ludies nre nl-
ways complaining of sick headaches, want o
appetite, want of energy, und want of strength,
to correct nil these evils, three or four ol tbeso
fills should be taken twice a week, when they
would give the invalid .no health anil uppetita
of a ploughman.
FcnialeM of all Apes :ia«l flas»c»
Obstructions of any kind, either in young
or those between forty and Gfty—ih" most critical peiiod of life—may be radically remo. ?*3
by using these Pills according to the printed
directions whioh accompany each hot. Younft
persons with sickly nnd sallow complexions
mny have the bloom of health restored by thi?
corrective, wLi'ch purifies the blood nud expels all gross and impure humors from thesys-
tem. Heware then of tho critical age Iron
forty to fifty, ns it -Bends many thousands to
premature grave,—these Pills should be ukc>
it that period of lite two or three timet »
teek
IVant of Strength and Energy-
Persons of sedentary hnbite, or those troubled in mind, working iu Factories or Coul
Pits, who cannot obtain that amount of frost,
air and exercise wbich nature requires, suffer
from weakness nnd delility, lowness of spiri.i
and want of nppetite. All sucb should take •
dose or two of the30 Pills every three or foul
days, as they net gently nud effectually on the
system and impart vigor and energy to the
body, which is always followed by a good
nppetite, sound and refreshing sleep, nnd »
high (low of spirits.
For the Cure of Dropsy.
The cfiic.icy of Holloway'a Pills in Dropsy
is extraordinary, Tbey act with such n peculiar clfect upon tbo system, that the fluids
causing this direlul complaint, arc peraeptibl
carried olf and prevented from any furtbel
accumulation. The sullerer regains a buoyancy of spirits nnd rejoices in a completely
renovated constitution. It is indispeusahly
necessary thnt the Ointment should be most
effectually rubbed into the complaining partn
during the whole course of troatmeut.
Children aud their Allmente.
In no country in the world nre more children
carried to an early grave than in Great Britain.
Coughs, Measles, Scarlatina, Fevers, and other
diseases attack the little sufferers, apd death,
but too often, follows at a rapid pace; yet if
at the first stage ot these complaints, parent*
were to have recourse to H611bway's PilU, all
danger would be atoidod. for tho stomach
and bowels would oe gently but effectually
cleansed by tbis mild aperient; the depraved
numors corrected ana tne secretions duly regulated. A perfect cure would 'oon be effected, and the IHtle patient restored to •oun''
health.

A N«w Coio»v—A bill before the House of
Commons provides that the Straits .Settlements—that is to Bay, thc Island ol' Singapore,
Prince of Wales' Island and Malacca—shall,
at a time to be fixed by Order in Council,
cease to be a part of India ; aud Her Majesty
in Council may establish laws and constitute
courts fur the government of theso settlements.
This transfer from thc Indian to the home administration is made at the desire of the merchants in tho settlements. It will nut entail
any charge on the finances of the mother
country—the settlements will be self-supporting. Sir Hercules Robinson was instructed
toy'the late Duke of Newcastle to report upon
tne subject of this change, and the report,
which was made two years ago, recommends
thai the three settlements be incorporated
ioto one Crown colony, under one governor,
with an Executive Council, and that for all
legislative purposes there should he oneOoun-
cil, composed, as in Ceylon and Hong-Kong,
of official and unofficial members nominated
by tbe Crown, tho governor to he enjoined to
visit Penang und Malacca for a certain portion
of every year.
Captdrkofa Clothes Tittar.—A house
on the corner of Yates and Cook streets was
entered by an Indian thief about half-past D
o'clock yesterday afternoon, while the occu-
panla were ia the garden, and a quantity of
female wearing apparel carried off. A little
girl witnessed the theft, and told a neighbor,
who gave information to the police, and
Sergt. Ferral started after tho thief. He soon
discovered tlic felluw running and gave chase
when the scamp got into the brush near the
head of Johnson street and hid. The officer
ran on about a mile and finding that tho
Indian had not passed he turned back, and
luckily discovered him lying in the drain,
pretending to be asleep. He at once seized
him when the Indian, who is a tall active-
looking Songisb, resisted vigorously but was
overpowered and his hands secured. He
then offered tho officer $10 to let him off.
The magistrate this morning convicted tbo
prisoner of theft and sentenced him to four
months' imprisonment with hard labor.
Faoa San Francisco—The schooner Fannie Hare, Capt. Matthew Turner, arrived from
San Francisco in Royal Itoads last evenins,
and wag warped into the harbor this (orenoon.
She sailed on the 18th August, and had very
light winds and calms all the way up, being
four days from Capo Flattery to port. The
F«nnle Harejij a new schooner, this being her
first voyage; she is built throughout of East
India teak, imported for the U. S. Government two years ago, is very heavily sparred
and rigged, and is probably tho finest craft of
the kind that ever visited this port. Her registered tonnage is 1G3 tons, and she brings
about 220 tons of general merchandise valued
at $24,033, part of which she will to-morrow
cotnmenco discharging nt thc 11. B. Co,'a
•harf; tho remainder goes lo Messrs. Cunningham Bros, of Nanaimo, where the schooner will load with coal for San Francisco.
Tiuatrical.—Mr. It. G. Marsh went to
Portland on the Fideliter this morning, for
Ike purpoae of making arrangements nbout
the theatre in that place. The departure of
the Marsh family would be a sensible less to
the community, especially as we aro not
likely to have any regular theatrical company
here for thc season, and some effort should
bt made to induce them to remain. Unless
public amusements of some kind are kept up
in the city when the miners ctme down, wo
c»n hardly hope to retain that class of the
population among its during tho winter.
Liicb RtviR Ditch.—The contract for the
•instruction of the ditch at Leech river has
been awarded to Messrs. Jeffrey and NichoL
ion, and for cutting the lumber for the flume
lo Messrs. Jeffrey and Sons, who will coui-
ttenoe the construction of the sawmill and
dstn at once, and have to-day sent out a train
le Leech with the necessary supplies. The
data is to be finished in one month and the
lumber ent in two months from signing of
eentract.

R«tob«id.—Mr. E. T. Coleman, who recently ascended Mount Baker within a few
"et of the eummit, returned to-day from Bel.

H»k next anmmer.
For Portland.—The Bteniner Fideliter
Bailed this morning, at 11 o'clock, with 28
passengers and about 20 tons offriegbt.
Anion;; the passengers were Mrs. \. r
Matthic«en and family; also, Mr. Pbillpi,

Indian ItnaoiB.—A fight occurred lift
night between two Indian: at Esquimalt,
when one of'hem being overpowered by the
other seized a gag and .-hot bla Opponent
dead. An inquest was held on the body th.s
afternoon b) Mr. Pemberton, and a verdict of
wilful murder returned.

To rue Editor of the Braviva TatlORAPH
—Stu—The Chronicle of yesterday morning
atates thnt Her Majesty's gunboat Forward is
detailed to visit the Episcopal Missions of
British Columbia, and to convey tlic Missionaries to tbeir s'ations. It is quite recenily
that the Sparrowhawk,engaged Intbesamefer-
vice, ran on a rock, necessitating her being
overhauled in .San FrancilCO.
Is Admiral Dcnniuii instructed to place
Her Majesty's vessels at tho service ol' Bishop
Hills and his clergy ?
If Admiral Dcnmiin is ordered by thc Admiralty to use his official influence, to employ
Her Majesty's vessels, and to expend British
taxes in building up a denominational Church
in these colonies, then tbo Admiralty moat
answer for the same in the proper place ; but
even with these instructions (whose existence
I doubt), both Bishop Hills nnd his patron
will find that the possession of ships of war
or the firing of salutes from the same does not
ipso facto create a State Church or compel the
sileuco of A British Nonconformist.
Sept. 4, 1806.
Ghekk Firr.— An old book — tlie
' Natural Mngick,' of liaplisttt de I'orto—
published in Italy towards the middle of
the 16th century, pives the following
recipe nnd short history of ' Greek Fire :'
' By the aubtili'y of the Greeks there
was invented a fire called Greek fire. To
overcome the ship, presently, they boyl'd
Willow-coals, Silt, Spirit of Wine, Brimstone Pitch, with the yarn of the soft,
wool of Ethiopia, and Citinpliire ; which
it is wonderful to speak, will burn alone
in water, consuming nil matter. Cullim-
acliuq, the urcliiteet, Hying from Heliopolis,
taught the Romans that thing Brat, and
many of their Emperors did uso that
against their enemies alterwnrds. Leo,
the Emperor, burnt with this kind of lire
those of the East, that sailed against
Constinople with 1,800 Citmels. The
same Emperor, shortly after, burnt with
the same fire 4,000 ships of the Enemy,
and 350 in. like manner. Prometheus
found out that lire would keep a year iu
thc Cune Ferula : wherefore Martial
speaks of them thus :—
Canes, that the Masters love,  hut Boys do
hate,
Are by Promcthcus's gift held at a great rate.'
Ba'idiarous Execution I.v India.—
The Intlian papers contain an account of
the barbarous execution in Western India
by the Guicowurof Baroda, who caused
a wealthy Vahouietan gentleman tu be
pat to death by being dragged through
Baroda at tho heels of an elephant, The
only charge imputed to the Mahometan
was that he formed tin improper connection with one of the Guioowar's cast-off
mistresses. The mode of execution ia thus
described : The man was bound hand and
foot, and a rope about 20 feet long fastened to his waist by one end, tho other
being attached to the hind foot of an elephant. Tho animal was thon driven
through the city, oach step dragging the
victim in jerks over tho rough road. In
executions of this kind the most a victim
can hope for is to be speedily rendered
insensible by striking against some friendly
stone. After passing through the city, if
there be yet a spark ot life left, tho elephant places his foot ou the body, und all
is over. In thc present caso the man was
dead beforo the confines of the city were
I cached.
Ancient and Modern Mechanical
Works—Many are accustomed to think
that the great mechanical works of an.,
tiquily far exceed in magnitude and skill
those of modern times. The great pyramid in Egypt, which waa built by a
powerful monarch rcqnired the labor of
100,000 men, according io Herodotus, or
300,000, according to Diodorus Bicolus,
for 20 years, and the labor expended on
it has been estimated as equivalent to
lifting 15,733,000,000 of cubic feet of
stone one foot high. Thc labor on the
London and Birmingham Railway, on the
contrary, is estimated at 25,000,000,000
of cubic feet more than was lifted for this
great pyramid ; and yet it was constructed in less than five years, by about 20,000
tncu,'in the employ of a company of private individuals, without auy aid from
Government and in the fuce of great obstructions and difficulties.
Removal.—Messrs. Solomon Bros, have removed to the two-story brick building on
Government street, opposite the St. Nicholas
Hotel. They have received, ex ship Mohawk,
from Loudon, a fine assortment of meu's
clothing and underclothing, which they will
sell lower than any house in town. Give them
a call. »
Ax aotor'b Makino-CI'.—This is an
axiom of the d'essiiig-iootn—'The homer
fnce will not tike paint until it is shaved '
We might add another—'The hu:i nn
face will not tuke paint until it is washed.'
So, to begin vith, the actor has to shave
and wash. Tlict, lie has to lanoda Mm.
self of the garments of every day life—
even to tlio very shirt—and indue bimaelf
in other gntineuts, which in too many
cases, bare been worn by others, und nre,
iu general, Int. stufTv, and uncomfortable.
This done, ne hns to sc:;t liiiu<'-lf in a
chair, and have his fuce | united by a
lire—er. New, there are some '.liings about
making up tlie face which me the most
distressing which can happen to a man
who possess38 any sense of dignity, or entertains any respect for his person. To
be flowered with :\ powder-pull'is pleasant
enough, there is nothing very objectionable in baring rnige put on your cheeks
with a hare's foot ; you may even inbuilt
with putieneo to bo wrinkled with Indian
Ink ; but what do you imagine are the
feeling! of a man when his nose (with the
view of having a piece of pink cotton wool
stuck upon it) is being daubed over with
mulled glue, os if it were the lejr of a
stool or the knob of a drawer? Imagine
the process going still further, nnd
the contents of the glne pot being
smeared over your eyebrows in order to
secure the ndhesion of two tufts of crape
huir. Nothing but actual experience
could give you any conception of the delightful sensation which eniuea when the
glue becomes dry, nnd you can neither
shut your mouth nor wink your eyes. If
we had an enemy, and were vindictive,
we should desire nothing better than to
stand over him nntl taunt bim with his
degraded condition when he is having his
nose glued. Pulling thnt organ, punching
it, tuecking it, ure nothing, nothing to
glueing it.—London Society.

Dr. Maggiel is the foundu ot a new Hedical

who restores health nnd appetite, witb from
one to two of his extraordinary Pills, and
cures the most virulent sores with a box or so
ol Ids wonderful and ail healing Balve. These
two great specifics of the Doctors are fast superseding all ihe stereotyped nostrum! of the
day. Extraordinary cures by Maggiel's I'ills
and Snlve have opened tlie eye? of the public
to the Inefficiency of the (so called) remedies
of others, and ttpOn winch people have so long
blindly depended. Maggiel's I'ills are no ot
iho class that are swallowed by the dolcD, mnl
of which every box lull token creates an absolute necessity for another, lino or two of
Maggiel's Pills suffices to place tho bowels in
perlect order, tone the Btomach, create an appetite, and render tlie spirits light nnd hm.y-
ant! Tliere is no griping, nnd no reaction in
the form of coustipntion. If thc liver is affected, its functions are restored; audit the

Tbe i: iii fed Mate* and the North
American C olonlea.
A few ihsoes back we published a copy
of the bill recently introduced Into Congress for tbe annexation  of the British
North  Americuu   Colonies.    It  may be
interesting to onr readers  to  know tbe
origin of the bill  nnd why it came to be
introduced.    Its history is  brief and we
believe significant, when ue take into consideration tbe hostile attitude assumed by
Congress on tbe  subject of reciprocity.
On tbe 28th of March lust, the House of
Representatives passed  a  resolution  requesting from the Secretary of the Treasury  of   Ihe  United  Stales   information
connected  with  the trade between the
United States and Canada, tho commerce
generally of the British provinces, " together   with   ench   general   information
brought down to the promt time as may
be in   his possession,   nnd   may  assist in
correctly estiaietiug  thc trade  resources
of said provinces  and  their relations to
tho trade and production of the United
States.'1   In  response   to   this   request
Secretary McCuiloch furnishes a valuable
statistical   report   compiled    under   bis
supervision by Mr. T»ylor,  special  agent
of the Treasury Department for the district of Minnesota.    Tbe concluding portions  of the report  aro  devoted to the
political  relations   of tho   United States
Ond   British   America   " npon   which''
says  Mr. McCnlloch   " I  am  not prepared  to  express  an   opinion   at   ihis
time,   but  to   which   I   inrite the  at-
tention of tbe House of Representatives.1'
Tboreport or letter ia dated Washington,
June 12, and thus treats of this colony :
"Vancouver  Island,   with   many  open
districts suitable for cultivation, is rich in
coal, forests of pine, and fisheries, and is
destined to a prosperity qnite  similar to
that of Nova Scotia.''   After speaking of
tbe resonrcos of British Columbia it alludes to its population and its finances,
putting tha former down at  11,405  in
1863, witb a debt at that time of $600,»
000 at 6 per cent,, and with an estimated
rerenue the present year  of $600,000.
" The finances of Vancouver Island " it
says, "are in no better condition.   The
expenditure for a Government  of  tho
population of 6,000 exceeds $200,000 per
annum.''   ln a very iucid manner the report goes on to show the immense im.
pctns to industry nnd trade which a union
with tbe United States would give to the
whole Northern contineut, and thus speaks
of the probable failure under Confederation  of the   construction  of  tho   groat
works   which   are   designed   for    the
Northern    portion   of   tho    continent.
" Tbe    destiny,"    it   says    " of   British   America is involved   in   the extension of  an  ccean  coast to the Western
limits of the  great lakes, nnd a railway'
from Halifax to the capital of tho Confederation, and thence, exclusively on the
soil   of tho  Confederation, to the North
Pacific coast.   The adequate improvement
of the St. Lawronco nnd Wetland ennuis
(without assuming the Ottawa and Georgian Bay projects,) involvos  nn  expenditure of $20,000,000,  and a St. Lawrence
and  Paciflo railway, even  if aided  by
liberal allotments of land along its line,
will  require at this lime a government
subsidy of $100,000,000.   Who anticipates   tbat   England   will   assume   any
material portion of such obligations ? and
the proposed federal government of tbe
provinces will donbtless regard the promised communication between Halifax and
Quobec as tho utmost possible limit of its
railway liubility, at least for this century.
The languago of tbe  Quebec Conference
as to communications with the Northwest
and the improvements required for tbe
development of tho trade of tho  great
West with tbe seaboard, is far short of a
pledge of public action.    True, a certain
degree of Interest   is expressed in these
ohjects ; tbey are regarded by tbe Conference aa subjects of the highest importance
to tbe federated provinces,  anil  shall bu
prosecuted at tbe earliest possible  period
that the state of tbe finances will permit;'
and  in another plane there is n provision
tbat ' The Northwest Territory, British
Columbia and Vancouver Island shall be
admitted into tbe Union on such terms
and conditions as the Parliament of the
federated provinces shall deem  equitable,
and as shall receive   the  assent  of Her
Majesty; and in thc case of Ihe province
of British  Colombia  or  Vancouver,  as
shall be agreed to by the  Legislature of
inch provinces.' All of which seems quite
inadequate when such immense resources
might be brought into the circle of tbe
world's activities if a policy was at once
inaugurated ample to consummate the
cm. ti notion of a national highway from
ocean to ocean between the latitudes of
45° on the Atlantic and 55° on the
Pacific, through the teeming belt of set«
tletnents which would follow upon its
truck.'' Tbe report thus goes on : "1
cuntiot resist tbo conclusion tbat events
havo presented to the people and Government of thc United Stutes tbe opportunity
—let me rather sav have devolved tbo duty
of interposing by an overture to tbe people of the English colonies on this continent, of course upon the fullest consultation wiih the Government of Great
Britain, to unite tbeir fortunes with tbe
people and Government of tbe United
States. Sucb a proposition on the part
of the United States might be in the
following terms t" and here comes tbe
very bill which wns subsequently introduced by General Banks, und upon which
we have already commented. We go
into these particulars to show that the
measure is no hastily devised scheme by
au Individual member of Congress, but
that it is tho emanation of the Government itself—that it forns part ttHd parcel
of tbe policy of tho nation. We merely
give a faint outline of tho report, but
there nre mutters of sufficient importance
contained within its pages to justify our
alluding to tlie bubject in another issue.
