A   FACT.
Up where the world grows cold
Under the sharp north Btar,
The wrinkled ice is very old,
And the life of man is far ;
-lone to see when the fog falls white,
And none to shiver nnd hear
How wild the bents arc in the night
Which lasts for half a year.
Tbe wind may blow as it will,
Hut it cannot shake a tree,
Nor stir the waves which lie so still-
It is the corpse of a sea I
Tbe sun comes out over tiowerlcss strands
Where only ice-tears rlow,
When  the pale north  weeps for sweet woodlands,
Which she must never know.
Earth speaks with awful lips—
" No place lor man It here I
Between my bergs I'll crush your ships
If you will come too near:
You shall be slain by bitter wiud,
Or starved on barren shore,
My cm. I snow shall strike you blind ;
Oo trouble me no more 1 "
Hut British men arc fain
To venture on and through,
And when you tell them to refrain,
They set themselves to do ;
Into the Bccrcis of the snow
Wi. h steps unsbamed they prens,
And answer nature's coldest "No,"
With a great shout of " Yes."
It was a little band
Went on that dangerous track,
To do a message front our land
And to bring an answer lack ;
Tbe frost had bound their good ship tight,
And years were come and gone,
When a few brave hearts, as best thoy might,
Went over the Bhores alone.
And as one strode so bold,
He taw a sight of fear—
Nine white wolves came over the wold,
And they were watching a deer ;
By three and by two and by one
A cunning half-moou they made,
They glanced at each other and did not run,
But crept like creatures afraid.
They knew what they were about,
And the poor thing knew it loo,
It turned itt bend like a child in doubt,
And shraak nnd backward drew;
But whether it looked to left or right
It met a savage eye,
And the man stood still and saw the sight,
And felt tbat it must die.
Backward, trembling and fast,
And onward, crafty and slow,
And over the cliff's sheer edge at last,
And crash on tbe ice below ;
But then with  a whirl  and a plunge  and  a
whoop,
The wt Ives are down the hill;
They break llteir ranks, that wise white troop,
When it is time to kill.
And dayt and nlghis went past,
And the men grew weary and pale,
Scanty fond and freezing blast,
And h.nrts brginiiiug tn full I
The wanderer knew his steps were slow,
And his eyes were languid aud dim,
Wben nine while wolves came over the snow.
And they were watching—bim.
He saw them gather and glance.
And he remembered the deer I
He huw them frame their cunning advance,
And he felt a little fear I
But never a hair's breadth did he swerve,
Nor lower his looks a whit.
But be faced the rruel sciraetar-curve,
And then—walked up to it I
There is never a beast so strong
As to bear a brave man's eye I
They crouched ; they looked as if nothing
wnB wrong,
And then they turned to fly.
The man stood still and drew his breath,
When he saw the scattering ranks ;
He had been face to face with death i
I hope he uttered thanks.
There's a fireside far away,
A little anxious now,
Where a man shall Bit one joyful day,
And tell of the world of snow ;
And tell of the wolves who sup bo grim,
And leave no bone behind ;
And how they meant to sup on him,
But looked and changed their mind I

FoRTtJ^-t-TlltMNU.— Men• Imve always
been curious to look into futurity ' to
learn their fnto,' and this curiosity has
shown tlio existence of a. destiny—thai
certain events tniist happen to a perton
Ji'ot that asirology, or any other Imiuihh
agency, could lift the veil that conceals
the future ; hut the eagerness to do s*.
blinded the reason, und men have made
themselves the dupes of knaves who pie-
tended to possess a power to which no
mortal can attain. This desire to look
into the future, with its accompanying
belief in destiny, although directly op
pesed to tho precepts ot the tJnristian
faith, still prevails in society to a greai
extent _mong the unenlightened, ' fortune-telling'continues n lucrative profession to the Unscrupulous knave, ami the
records of our police courts show thai
there is no luck ol dupes. Were it more
generally lecogiiised that the assumption
of the character ef fortune-teller is but a
cloak lo cover thut of thief, perhaps ilu
number of cluj.es would soon iLni-ni.-li.
The varied fortune that attends iiiff* run*

the principal evils of ibe country are Ihe
result of our fmilty cons'iUitioi'. liy which
iho Governor, with his olli.-in's and
nominees, cuu destroy every useful
meusnre of the representatives ol the
people. Und tlie Homestead bill, Ibe
Lien bill, the abolition of the Imprisonment for debt bill, the Franchise1 bill, nnd
other libcial measures which the Lowes
House passed hist session been accepted
by His Excellency and his advisers, hundreds of people who were literally driven
from the country would huve be.-u on tbe
Island to-day, adding to its pintlnclive
wealth. Had His Excellency been properly advised on the question of the Crown
lnt-ds, the pub!'c would have bat] these
sources of revenue in their hands long since,
without being compelled to pay the exorbitant civil list demanded, ami without being obliged lo witness Ibe resources
of thecottutry liermetlcal'ysealed, Through
the generally obstructive policy of the
Government the country litis been unable
to resist the depression caused by over
speculation, nnd day by tiny witnesses the
ruinous results. T:ie question wilh
every intelligent man in the community is
—will this state of things continue until
the days of 1857 shall havo been revived ?
Is there no turning point? it is for the
House of Assembly and the Executive to
answer these important Interrogatories.
Already the former body hus passed, by
the almost unanimous vole of ten to two,
resolutions condemning the administration; and requesting the removal of Uov.
Kennedy und his official advisers, and the
decision is as unanimously sustained by
the people, showing clearly lo His Excellency the hopelessness of any 'ippeal to
the country. There are no doubt a few
men in the Hoine n:id out of it who are
opposed to the Governor solely on personal grounds,—who arc disappointed
nt being removed from offieo or at
not receiving some special gubernatorial
favor,—but they do not form any lotpor
lant clement In Ibe community, The
motive which actuates the people, and
which actuates the Flollse (jcOorally, is the
country's welfare There is no antagonism
lo Governor Kennedy u- Governor Kennedy ; but there is a widc-.-pre:iil antipathy
to his uilininislra ion. Let the administration  give   way ; let   thy  people
bar? what  they have asked for over and

»ill then be curried into effect. This is
the substance of ibe prayer ot the (loose
to the II..un! Uorurmueiit ; hut Iler
llnji'sty's Miui-tcrs do  not hurry things,
und it may be u we iry period to us lielure
the change conies, 'in avoid, therefore,
perhaps a ruinous delay, Mr. DeCoiinos
brings    loi'wui-d     his    motion    for    the
establishment of a Ministerial Council,
composed principally of members of the
Lower House, who will be responsible to
the people in the same manner us Ministries nre in colonies possessing responsible
Government. Instcud of having officials
who are in no way accountable lo the
public for thiir legislative action, controlling our affair*, we should ou the passage of
such a measure, have the f'i.11 powers uf
Government in the hands ef the people.
There is nothing new in the proposition
It was made by tiie Assembly immediately prior to tho arrival of Governor
Kennedy, has been Spoken of repeatedly
since, anil bas been even inserted iu the
" Reply which has just passed the
House, as a desirable constitutional
change. So far, then, the Assembly is
'pledged to the Scheme ; the only question
that iiriscs, is bow is it to be c .fried nut ?
and tb'* brings us to the consideration of
the action of the Assembly ou Fridoy in
staying tbe '' want of confidence1' r
luiious.
followed, however,  tbo  list chance the
people   had   of   obtaining  an   immediate
change in tho constitution of the eolony
would hare been lost ; for it resit wilh
Governor Kennedy and bis advisers to.
-ay whether that cl unge will be made.
If the pro: o-ition be acceptable Io the Executive—and tho Home can ascertain it
by appointing a Committee to morrow—
the colony will obtain by an Act of our
own fj"gislattire everything it could obtain by application to the Home Government ; if it be not. acceptable, theu tbe
House has its course clearly marked out.
The resolutions will have to go. It is a
< simple business arrangement, and the
twaddle written about " traps " nnd
" Executive dodges" is simply the emanation of a befogged brain. It wns remarked in the House on Friday, and we
sec it echoed by the Chronieh yesterday,
that tliccolotii-tl Legislature has do power
iu the matter,—tbat wo cannot Interfere
with our constitution. It is bad enough
or legislators to be ignorant of the power
of their own legislative body, but for a
newspaper to declare with all the solemnity
of a wiseacre that, one constitution is the
" Governor's Instructions,'' is something
bordering on imbecility. Every colony
having representative Government can
now alter by Act of Legislature its constitution—can override Governor's Instructions, or even thu law of EuglaiiJ itself.
Il is little over a year ago an Act, was
passed in the British Parliament for this
especial purpose, entitled "An Act to Remove Doubts as to tbe Validity of Colo, .inl Laws." The Act was published iu
both colonies last November, und it
speaks exceedingly bad for a public
jourmil, which is supposed ou these questions to guide the public, to be Ignorant
on so important a mater. We append
the following two clauiei for the enlightenment of our obtuse contemporary i
" No i-olonial law, paBen witH the cen-
earrt'ii'-e i*r or asseated to by the Governor ol
any  culuny, nr   to be   li-i'-. ill" 10   passed   ur

forthe peace, order, and good jevtrnment
of Bueh colony, even thou th such Instructions
may bo referred to In sn. b batten Patent or
li t-montloned i" -trument.
Bvory Colonl il I ■ ■ latnn lull Imve, and
la- deemed at all li.iu-s lo have had, lull

t'.il ii'.l i..» lor tlie lime being In forci lo
tbe said pplonv.''
It wi I  thus lie seen   that/our Legtsla
tun-, wilb the Governor, has ample power
to amend our CouSlltollou iu a way that
will remove all tl.e present bickerings and
want of harmony between the Various
branches—that will, in fact, give to the
people the power to carry oat their legitimate demands. AVill His Excellency at
this eleventh hour come boldly out and
accept tbo proposition, or will he, like
some of the members of Ihe Assembly,
be guided more by personal feeling than
by uu honest desire to 6ec the country
prosper? There never was a time in the
history of the colony when it required
more judgment III the nianagement of
public affairs, and there never was a time
when graver responsibilities rested on the
members of the Assembly. We write
calinly and seriously. Wc have no desire
lo follow iii the scurrilous pathway of our
contemporary ahfl malign the motives of
men who havo striven through good and
ill repute for the  maintenance of what
OUr contemporary COUM u-ver understand
and never act up lo—pclilioal pripmple.
It is ta-y enough for tne corrupt
and liie depraved to atsctt or insinuate
lh.it there is a   in . - live in eveiy
act of their neighbor, but the public generally   estimate   aucb   ch  i1 ;t B   at    tlu-ir
• value.   T lere  is but one obj. ct,
one motive, urging the members who | ia>
led the const,im,.i ..ii  resolution on I'ii-
:..| th it  is to b in li'. ih • com trf.
It  tiny are  not   lUSlaitlud by   the
tin-   i* ■ J    the    la-l
chance the | enl  ynr (,f getting the
colony nut of its ni'.st pressing iliflieultii-s
will rest ou those whose hatred to
Governor Kennedy is greater than their
love for Ihe colony. For cut own part,
we an quite ready ut nil tilu n to sacrifice
n stubborn Governor for the good of tbe
country, but we aro i;.it prepared to give
up i-ien the smallest chance of restoring
confidence In the affairs of lbs colony.
We have no animosity against Governor
Kennedy — if he comes forward even nt
iii- l.itc- hour iu thu day and doeajuslleo
to the people ami lln| co'oay we are ready
to give bim our warmest inpporl ; but if
he persists in his present course wo are
equally determined to do all iii our power
to get him and bis advisers removed.
That removal, however, is only a means
to an cud ; it wonld be a poor change to
get a new Governor und new advisers as
bail as their predeccs'ora, What wc waol
mo<i is a system of Government tbat
will effectually prevent Governors and ol»
I'iciuls standing iu the way of Iho colony's
progress. If we can get that System by
the present proposition, and yet refuse lo
grasp the Opportunity, ve richly deserve
our fate; if the House is willing, ut-d
Governor Kennedy declines, then there is
no Im rui done, and the resolutions Will n't
be a moment delayed. Under nny circumstances it is tlio duty of a representative
body to study above ull tilings the country's
interest, and to sink personal feeling ler
the general good.

Tub I'iiksbytshmn 8. 8. Pu sir.—The
Sunday School Pienic Riven by Urn Prriliv-
t.-riiin elmrcli ou I-'riiluy last, deserves uiou-
than a pasiitiK notiee, as being probably thr
largest and most 9uccc5n!iil nlT.iii- of the kiml
ever licit! in Victoria. At least tiro hundred aod
Bttychildrm were prcBent during the day, and
nearly one hundred ladles ami fci-ntl iih-ii, the
parents nnd friends of tha scholnrs. The
children formed in procession at the church,
Pandora street, where Mr. Robertson took u
photograph of the MMnblagl; they then
proceeded to the beautiful grove adjoining
Jay's Nursery Garden?, where ample tirnitige-
nn'iiti had been ninde for tin* iiniii-.eiii.nl t.t'
the young pleasure-seekers. The afternoon
passed right pleasantly, nml towards evening
a long table was set out and plentcottsly
spread with cakes, fruit, lemonade,milk, &■•.,
to which the eager li tic revellers di I ample
justice. Tha proceedings we e enlivened
and rendered doubly ntlrii-tivo to the
numerous by-standeis, by the p rfo.-miiiici*
of hymns and ch.uits by Ihe scholars,
under the ski fill leadership oi' tho church
precentor, Mr. Geary, who certainly il.-s iv.-s
the praise io iiniiuiniously .ic.-onled him by
tne visitors, as well as ibe cheers so Heartily
given hy his enthusiastic pupils. After the
refreshments, Mr. (ieniiln took photographs of the assemblage in two groups, tht
girls with their teachers iu one view, and the
boyi and their teachers in another, wilh the
Visitors gronped iu the background, The
photographs were very w.-ll in en, mnl every
one interested in the o.-.-nsioii Should SSCBfl a
copy tis a memento of so pleasant, a gathering.
Afti r this the young people were addressed in
a most eloquent strain by John Wright, Esq ,
el.ler of the church, bnelly but happily Inlawed bv Mr. Somerville, the pa8tor, and then
tlio youthful company, whoso healthy happy
leekl and neat upparel were warmly admired
hy the visitors, mar bed once more to the
ciiurch and were dismissed to their homes.
We should mention that the Presbyterian
Nmdny KUlotil consists of 1$S jmpils, but
villi that Ciitholie spirit which lias ever distinguished the Presbyterian congiegation in
tbis city, nt least, an equal number of children
ot other denomination* were invited tu take
part in the (festivities.
Tub Launch.—Captain Stamp's fine new
steamer wns launched Irom Trahiy's shipyard yesterday afternoon, at four, o'clock, in
the presence of a great nntn er of spectators,
l-'or an linur or two before the time fixed for
the lnun.'h crowds of people, both by Water
and by land, took tbeir way towards the spot;
every boat in the hirbor was in requisition,
mid the ferry hunt was loaded to the gunwale
every trip by passengers going to tho i-blp-
yard across the Reserve. At the appointed
hour several hundreds of penp'o, Including a
very large proportion of hulit's, were on the
ground, and the workmen at once began to
knock away tho stays" whiih kepi the vessel
in her place on the ways. The work WhI
soon performed, aid in a verv much shorter
l;me than most of the by-stauders expect'd,
she begin to move, anl rapidly gaining impetus inio'.tlily and swiftly glided tlown the
wnys amid the hearty cheers of the assemblage
The Isabel, na the new craft was christened,
by Mrs. J. 0. Shepherd, wife of the manager
of the Rank of Ilriiish North America, is a
very handsome side-wheel ptcnniT ; her total
length is 149 feet, width 2;ift. Hin., and depth
Oft. 2in. She is HO-hnrse power, her engines
and boilers having been Imported on the
Kastern Chief, recently from London, and she
will bo Iho most strongly built and powerful
tug in these waters. Iler hull is spoken of
by practical men who h tvo cxamim-d her, ns
a model of strength and beauty ; it is constructed in the most substantial manner, the
timbers being very massive and tho knees
being all natural crooks. The modeling and
wurkmnnship reflect the highest credit on
the builder, Mr. J. \V. Trnhcy.iind the steamer
when completed will be an honor to tho port
of Victoria. After the launch the hull was
kcdge.l down to ihe II. II. Oo'l. wharf, where
she will take ou board her boilers and machinery.

Qoslm, July 17th, 1868.
BlR,—1 beg to ini'.ke ion Ihe following re-
p.in of the procee lings of our  pa.ty of live
men.
We left thii place on the 21st June and
reached Nixon's .reek ou ihe 'Jiith Instant. Ill'
course we found it necessary in the first place
to saw lumber for sluices and tj construct a
ditch to bring waier on our i-Ini n. Owing to
the scarcity of al k nils of tools the latter
work occupied us ten days, although only
one-fourth uf a mil- In h-ngih. The original
ditch made hy Mr. Hi*.in'.* party had, in his
absence become completely lilled up. Owing
t.t thn presence of snow a id Iceon the ground
ve fouii'l il almost imp 'ssdile to keep onr
new ditch in order, and having left tin- water
running during one night in a bre.tk which
occurred, I found iu the morning prospects of
$1 to $1 IS to the p.m.
We therefore ooiniaenoed work in that spn*
nnd in a space of ground about 10 feet, hv 2}
feet, iu less than a day's wotk we wash* d out
S7H.
The other work which we had done had
yielded well, a d our whole results amounted
to $'2 70.
Estimating the actual number of days' work
to realise this, wc found nur p iy mummied to
$17 per dsy per mail. Under favorable circumstances and with hyirnulie pipe, with our
present prospects, 1 think the ground will pay
fifty dollars a d lyto the hand. When I left,
the " f.ic" of our .claim was about sll feet
high ntul paid frniu th.' surface down.
The blue bead Company, of seven men,
under th' inauag 'incut uf Mr. Sliepli, il, ..in

These are all the companies at present located.
Specimens of gold-benring quarts arc tn be
met with on nil sides. Wc have n few specimens with us in which the gold is visible in
every part. Several of the veins are apparently well defined, nnd will in my opinion
eventuilly form the most permanent and Valuable leads of gold in tbe country.
The next four weeks will enable all the
companies now on the creek to thurotighly
test their ground.
Uixon's Creek is a tributary of Canyon
Creek nnd rcsembb'8 Kcithley's ; it is sometimes very high, but liable to sudden changes,
and 1 should estimate its volume of water nt
one thousand inches. The general eourso of
the stream is nearly parallel with the Fmser.
It has its source in the " Blue Rang,-" of the
Carihoo mountains, is about 26 miles in
length, nnd has a very great fall. It will, if
.gold-bearing throughout, afford employment
for several thousand men.
The mouth of the Cottonwood River is the
terminus of steam communication from Soda
Creek.
In conclusion I can only say thnt I have
the utmost confidence in the prospects of the
creek. The developments of th" present sen-
son will, I hope, prove that I am not too sanguine.
