h i TUE   1.1.1:01   i:ivi:it    ditch.
It has been said tliut every house hn«
got its skeleton. We believe the in x'ui
night be extended in im application.
Countries as well ns bo___l have got thrir
haunting spectres. Vancouver It'nntl i«
indeed literally overrun with them. We
hire financiul spectres ex'rii.iini. every
dollar from the Inhabitant*, political spec-
tree haunting tho Upper House and
maliciously destroying cv.rv effort to improve the country, utul lite Crown hind
epeclre Malkvii? over the '..I n I, tnnt.iliz-
Ing the Indians, shuttiiia'tip our resources
and driving away it_tendiiif.»e.ili rs. Flo*
uianv coal mines might have been in existence along our wall had this spi*ii
been quietly laid ? how nrtiv su'istuniial
and productive investments would have
been made in the country bad this Crown
land question been dealt ufili widely hv
either, .the late or present (Int.-nor?
Instead of milking everything wili.lilinrjr
to the progress of the country, the policy
ecems to Have been to rob ihe colony fur
the benefit of the Hudson's I$iy Compi y
and the Crown. The Island might liter*
ally go to the dogs so long its the Indenture of 1862 were left mnl fturbeil, nml
the people undertook to pity the civil
list. In tbis wretched attempt to
sacrifice the country for the temporary benefit (hut ultimate injtry)
of the Crown, we see the oil Hit:, tniioii
of the destruction of the goose that lint!
the valuable egg". The Crown, through
its representatives here, has noted su imprudently—so culpably, in fnet, that its
legitimate revenue has dwindled down to
a sum so insignificant that His Exi'.llenrjr
is driven, if we accept rumor as an uu-
thority, to tlie_clos|lerote an reprehensible
straits of taking the public money to pay
the Crown's liabilities. On this point, in
the absence of more detailed information,
rve will not at present dwell; but, as tiov-
ernor Kennedy litis.applied to the A-sem-
bly Idr an appropriation lo carry on u
work at Leech river, which will tend, if it
produces anything, to replenish the empty
coffers of the Crown, it may be well to
ascertain how fur and in whnt manner
the Assembly wonld be justified iu voting
money for-the purpose. Leech river I a.
been already a cons der ilile expense to
the country, but so fur the Cnnvu has
been the only gainer. While salmi -s fur
magistrates and gold commissioners were
demanded from ibe Ass* mbly, the Crown
was rushing forward wilh mo.' primnnire
greed to collect licenses from the miners.
To vote public money for nny work
that adds materially to the reveum-
of the Crown, without getting any.
thing approaching an equivalent from
the Crown, would be to simply do nn act
of injustice to the people. While wc
believe, in the present juncture, iu giving
our Island diggings every chance,—while
we would desire to tee the ditch nt Leech
river completed,—we nre far ftpm sup
porting the Assembly in voting $-15.0 for
the purpose,a.that ot"tuiitic did today,
unless tho sum is to be repaid by the
Crown. His Excellency can then make
his owu terms with1 ihe Ditoli Company,
and get back, if the ditch will pay, the
amount risked. Under such clrcumituQi'es
we should hope to see ihu work begun nt
once ; for we'lcul assured Ihe ro-muuiiity
as well as the Croiui revenue would n iv in*
almost an immediate bem fl from tic
undertaking, unless indeed ihe nl*1 in x cty
of the Governor to innke the miners con
tribute untimely nnd in nn ttnjii.t propor.
lion to the Crown n-vn tie, should .top in
end frustrate ti o object. It is litis gel*
6sh and avaricious spirit iu the manage,
went of the Crown lauds Unit Im*retarded
many desirable works tiud. injured the
revenue  of the  Crown  itself.

Tbe Pandora Street Murder.
Jim, chief of the Songisbes, a son ol
the late King Fnezy, and Jim, another
Indian, were placed in the dock this morning
charged with tbe murder of the late EJtv.n
Eurin.
Thomas Wilson, sworn and duly cautioned
by the Magistrnt", lestitied that he lived with
an Indian woman—Tun's sister; I slept in my
house With my kloutchraan on Sunday nigh!
last; no one else slept titer- ; Tim the
kirn*tollman's brother, whom I knew by tbe
name of Jim, never s'ept there at all ; he was
In th" house on Monday f rennnn.
Kitty, the klootchman referred tn, sworn,
Mr. Hankin interpreting, testified thai only
h-rself ami ber man s ept in lie- house on
.Sunday night; Tim was only a friend ; saiv
Tim on Sunday, not on Monday. Wilsoi was
here brought up and again s ated that Tim
was at the house on Monday ; on which Kitty
idtniit d baring seen him. (Ihe witness
gave her evidence very reluctantly and contradicted herself). Did not know Jim, no.
his klootchman ;—being pressed admitted she
knew Jim's klootchman ; the klootchman was
at her house on Tuesday; did not bring any
iktas with her.
Tbe Magistrate here said it would on'y defeat the ends'of justice to examine, the witness
further at pr sent, and the case was therefore adjourned till Monday next.

Thi M-bdik Casi.—There is evidently
some hitch in this case, and Irom the mode of
procedure adopted it seems not unlikely that
tb- whole prosecution will full to the .round.
There appears to he no attempt at system in
getting up tbo case ; irre evant evidence ir
brought up, diliy after d lay occurs, an I the
time of the Court is frittered away wi bout
the ends of justice being advanced, notwith-
sttnding the palpable clues which chance,
teeming y, more than skill or energy, bus
p'sced in the Lands nf the heads of police. If
the prosecution is allowed to lull through by
ra smao. gement, thn parties through whose
negligence or incompetenc to flagrant a
crime has been allowed to piss unpunished
Day juitly expect a storm tf public indignation.
Cariboo Exeaiit.—From Mr N as, who
brought down Di tz k Ne a n's express from
