Wit and Humor.
Simpson, the actor, would never take
y medicine, and his medical mnn was
Lou obliged to resort to stratagem to
(WBO a dose on him. There is a play
which the hero is sentenced, in prison,
| drink a cup of poison, llurrv Rinip-
|n tat -playing this character one night,
si had given directions to have the cup
led with port wine; but what wns his
Pfofi when he came to drink it, lo find
I contained a dose of senna. Hccotild
ot throw it away, as he hail to hold the
oUet upside down, lo show his perso-
ators be had draiuetl every drop of it.
iiii|H0ii drauk tho medicine with iho
lewneM of a poisoned martyr; but he
ever forgave his medical man, as was
iroved at his death, for ho died without
laymi; his hill.
IUtjier Poiiokthjl— There is a legend
at one day a woman  went to Brlgbam
fotiug for counsel touching some ullegcd
ipprission by  an officer of tbo church.
3i'i(.'liuin,  liko a true politician, assumed
o bow ber; but when it became neces-
ary to record   her  case, hesitated and
laid : ' Lot me see, sister—J forget your
limnc.'   ' My name !' was   the  indignant
reply, 'why,  i am your wife.'    ' When
iiiti I merry you V   Tno woman informed
jibe ' ['resident,' who  referred lo ou  account book  in  his desk, nud  then said,
r Well, 1 believe you aro right.    I knew
jyour face was familiur !'
j Recently, when conversing with Mr.
Jlcuderson,of the Prince of Wales Theatre,
Liverpool, and ono or two other gentle-
nii'ii, Mr, Matthews said, incidentally,
'By the way, it is exactly sixty-two years
kiiice I mado my first appearance in Liverpool.' A look of buprise passed over the
features of those present, und ot length
one of them said: 'Dear mo ! in what
clmrncter was that?' 'In the character
o( tt baby,' was the reply; ' I wns born in
next street just sixty-two years ago.'
' He has " Iwnest man " written in his
face,' said a friend to tho late Douglas
Jerrold, sjieakitig of a person in whoa
Jerrold's faith was not so great. 'Humph,1
replied Jerrold, ' then the pen must have
heen a very bad one.'
'The wind is getting round,' remarked
Bibbs to his friend Boggiui, the other
day, when it changed from eust to west.
'Uludofit,' replied Hugging; 'its been
ehni p long enough.'
Josh Billings says, 'Thorn is two things
in this life for which we are never prepared, and thnt is twiiw.'
FACTS Tt. THEORIES
"Give mo a place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimedes, "and I will move tbe
world." " Give me puro and unadulterated
drugs," says Medicus, of tho olden time,
"and I will cure disease."
In one sense, both of these learned pundits
were the veriest charlntnne. They knew there
was no place to reBt their lever on, either to
move the world or cure disease. Mechanism
was in a backward state, nnd the medical profession was but another name for sorcery,
and all the adjuncts of magic filters und
charms of the " evil eye," ke.
But these latter dnys have borno unto ns
something more than even superstition and
its crew ever dreamt of in their maddest phi-
losophy. ln tbese days of practical science,
what was theory of yesterday i? fact to-day,
and all tbe old time notions become as bubbles
in tbe sun, and burst and break with every
breath we draw.
bet 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,
lor jte have them at our band, ever ready to
sorve them nt his beck.
' "Refi/\(d it! the laboratory of Dr. Magidel,
the finest materials known in tho medical profession ore .obtainable by any one. His
Billious, DjspepUc, and Diarrhoea Pill's stand
unrivalled, and bis Salve operates with magical effect upon burns, scalds, and all sores and
ulcers nf the skin.
lu fact, we think Magoibl's Pills and Salve
are tbe wonder of tbis century, and we are
happy m the thought thnt many others of onr
bretlm n of the cratt agree with ns. We would
earnestly counsel that all families provide
themselves with Dr. Mncgiol's Prepatattons at
once, and keep tbem ready at baud, so as to
use them at the most opportune time and as
ocoasion sorves.— Valley Sentinel.

To thc very CO'e und centre of all dismses
which affect the human body, this remarkable
preparation penetrates. It disappears under
tbe friction of the hands, aa suit disappears
when rubbed u^on intut. The unguent performs its healing errand rapidly, SBfcly, aad
without pair., simple eruptions, open sores,
bard tumors, scrolu'.oui developments of all
kinds, abcesses, cancers, old wounes, and, in
fact, every speciee of inflammation and suppuration, whether in the skin, the flesh, the
glands, or among the muscles, can be trresteb
in iti destructive course, und permanently
cared 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,
Bores, and ulcers ; in Spniu and Portugal, and
in many parts of Italy, the first Physicians re-
regulurly prescribe its use. It is a sovereign
remedy "for bad breasts and bad legs; and likewise for all skin diseases. It is to be found in
the chest of nearly every sailor, soldier, and
emigrant.

The Royal Dramatic College announce their
•annual faooy lair at the Crystal Palace on the
7th and 9th of July, wh«n an attractive pro-
4,'rfluiiuc of novelties will be given for thc
■amusement of the thousands of visitors who
intake a special point of attending this charming feti. A number of thc most popular of
the metropolitan actresses have signified tbeir
intention of holding stalls, and thc indcfatigiv-
ble Toole and Pawl Bedford will exhibit a collection of Chinese curiosities, many of which
would astound the Chinese themselves.' Mr.
and Mrs. Howard Paul, whose beehive last
.year was an elegant and novel point of attraction, will on this occasion preside over a grotesque edifice representing a " Palace of Pincushions," for the sale of those useful little
•rticles which thc name of the structure indicates, and which it is hoped will yield a
goodly sum ef pin-money to ihe ireasery of
'this excellent charity. Instead of Wombwcll's
*how, wbich for years past hns done good and
profitable acrvico, a mock Spunish bull-fi^lil
is talked of, nn which basket horses, sham
■matadors, omd,properly bulls will cnguge in
■comic combats of the most sanguinary yet
■harmless character.
Lahcbxy.—John Clerlliue, charged yesterday by W. W. Gibbs wilh stealing n'vat containing $5 2.V was brought up on remand
■this morning. Prisoner, on advice of Mr.
Bishop, pleaded goilty. The magistrate in
■sentencing ths prisoner gave the prosecutor,
■Gibbs, a very swore lecture, telling him that
bis conduct io tho matter was highly reprehensible. He was professing to hold out tbe
hand of friendship to tbe prisoner and to give
him charity, and at the same time laying a
•trap for tho ui.lurtunaie man, and bringing
this serious charge against him. In reply
to the magistrate, Gibbs denied having had
■any previous transactions with thc prisoner,
but inspector Welsh stated that Giobs bad
made a bogus bill of sale to Clerihuc on a
former occasion, and both had tried to deceive
•he police. The tnngistrate said in consideration of tbe relations that bad existed between
tbo parties, nnd the prcsont reprehensible
conduct of tbe prosecutor, he would indict a
very light sentence. He would, therefore,
as the prisoner had already been cor.fincd two
days, gave him 24 hours imprisonment.
Manns War Phasant.— Tho Italian gov-
emtncnthnve given orders for the manufacture
of cuirasses of aluminium for their cavalry
regiments. A sories of experiments made
under various conditions demonstrate that a
cuirass of this metal, while possessing the
great advantage of being as light as a coat,
cannot be pierced by a tuusket ball at the
distance of forty paces, nor by thc thrust of a
bayonet. It has also been ascertained thnt
cuirasses of this description can be maim
factured for as low ft aura as 25 francs.

M'rrn M. Italison.—Defendant, by Mr. Courtney, appeared to answer a commitment summons fur $l.ri8. The answer to tbe claim was
that the defendant had received his discharge
in Bankruptcy. Mr. Bishop contended that
litis wns no answer, the debt having been itui-
tracted between the adjudication und discharge, liis lordship reserved bis decision on
the points raised.
ConMoRAXT anient Rows—The police couit
was occupied some time this morning in settling disputes among the hybrid denizens of
Cormorant street and "the ravine." A meek-
looking " Celestial " entered a complaint
against a burly hydah klootchman for invading his donvcile, and took his u davy," after
tho usual Chinese fashion of writing his name
on n slip of paper aud burning it, that she
forcibly broke in liis door and entered b!l
premises. The dusky offender pleaded that
she was " btyou patlanib," aud the magistrate

A CUrlous Spt'.clmcii of Lawmaking.
To Tin Editor or tiik Evesinu Telkurapii
—Si3—It will no doubt appear very presumptuous in me who am not a professional man,
to oiler an opinion on the construction of a
section of a law-bill, but 1 am willing, in the
name of common sense, to risk a reproof.
There wns bo much cmbarussment in the
Court yesterday, on reading the following
section of the Bankruptcy Act 1802, tbat the
case which was involved in it was adjourned,
thnt tlic matter might have due consideration.
The section referred to (CXIX) read as follows:
"After the order of discharge takes etfcctj
thc bankrupt shall 'not be liable to pay or
satisfy any.debt, claim, or demand proveable
under the bankruptcy, or any part thereof, or
any contract, promise, or agreement verbal or
written, muile utter abjudication ; and if he
be sued upon any contract promise or agreement, be may plead in geti'tal that the cause
of action nccrucd- pending proceeding- in
bankruptcy, and may give this act and the
special mutter in evidence."
As the section re ids, it is sheer nonFcn?e,
because hy it no man would tic Liable to pay
any debt contracted by him afier he ha 1 been
adjudicated a bankrupt, liy pleading thai tbe
cause of aclion accrued pending proceedings
iu bankruptcy I II
A pretty kettle of legal fish—nnd yot by the
simplest process, correction ol nn error ln

for which it was intended : tbe comma in-
naad of being placed after tb* word ' written

TUESDAY EVENING, SEl'TEMBER 4, 1866.
WIMMlll     1\     HIGH     VVAVKA
Io our yesterday s issue we had only
space to allude to tlio ignominious as well
as ludricous ponilion assumed by our
inoriiing contemporary on thu dispute ha*
twee'1 tbe House of Assembly and the
Legislative Council, To-day we will cu-
deatror to show that the members of tlic
Upper House know just as much about
constitutional riglus and ure just about
as fur advanced in political opinions as
that institution which we yesterday designated, and we think appropriately, as the
Council's "poodle."' We aro informed
by tba Colonial Secretary nnd iho Attorney General, and the sumo idea is Mcet-
sarily broached subsequently in the
editorial of tho Chronicle, (showing the
source from which our contemporary
draws bis inspiration) that the Assembly
of this colony is subject to the Governor's
Instructions—that we have iu fact no
constitution, beyond that document which
His Excellency receives from the Colonial
Office for bis gaidance, and wliicli the
House of Assembly hns been refused even
a sight of. The Colonial Secretary's
opinion on matters of law we do not
expect to bo very profound ; hut for the
legal adviser of the Governor and for
even the Chief Justice to acquiesce in so
monstrous un absurdity ns litis is almost
beyond belief. Supposing for a moment,
and we can readily admit the proposition,
that the legal gentlemen are ignorant of
tbe manner in which colonies are constituted, can there be a more fallacious
position than to assume tbat the people
of a colony possessing representative insli
tutions must bo governed by a secret
■document—that their legislative acts
must be in accordance with a guide tliey
never taw, aud ure precluded from seeing
\>y the Governor's express refusal ? One
would think thut ordinary prudence
would prevent men who occupy such important positions as those we havo named
from risking their reputation on so apparent au absurdity ; but prudence, if it
ever did exist among tho Governors
udviserB, would seem to have been ruthlessly discarded, and nonsense that ordinary men would feel ashamed of uttering
is spoken by these officials without the
faintest semblance cf a blush.
Leaving aside, however, this fallacious
position, these men—these Legislative
Councillors — should know something
about constitutional law. There is no
excuse for ignorance on tho head wo have
written ; for even if the members are not
versed in Hallam, Macauluy or May, they
k ow that every year emanates from lbe
Colonial office in London a publication
Which giveB in a very few words
the constitution of tho various colonies.
By this publication they are Informed that
the Crown iu giving representative gov-
..uiueui tn n .»i. 4 "*r.nt/s give it any
otlier constitution than that modelled after
ilie constitution of England. 1'arliamont
can make auy constitution, but thc Crown
by orders in Council is couiincd in its
powers. When men talk, therefore, about
the Governor's Instructions being ourcnti-
itilution, thoy uro simply exhibiting the
most deplorable ignorance—all the " Instructions" in the world, if they came
from twenty Queens or twenty Secretaries
for the Colonics, could not take away a
single constitutional right which we possess by virtue of baving representative
Government. The very working of our
constitution would tench these uninformed people, if anything can teach
them, how utterly absurd is their ground
of argument. They know that tbe
House of Assembly has the power to
stop the supplies—to bring, in fact,
the Government to a standstill.—
This is really the greatest power that
any branch of the Government can exercise ; for it virtually decides whether then
thall be a Government or not; yet we are
profoundly told thut although our Assembly has this power—the greatest that
even the House of Commons possesses—
it has not the minor one of saying how
the money which it votes shall be spent!
We give a man authority over our lives,
but he dare not say what clothes we
shall wear. Why, ordinary reasoning
would show if the greater power is possessed the minor powers must be embraced
in that pt neaeion, from the simple fact
tbat the power of total destruction
can, if carried to its limit, force
nil the other demands. Is it not, then,
something bordering on the audacious as
well as ludicrous, to see these Legislative
Councillors, these officials who are dependent on the people's representatives for
lh« bread they cat, talk of tbe powers
they possess if tbey chose to exercise them,
and ia it not beyond ull belief that tbe
Treasurer should be so silly as well as so
Impertinent as to say the Governor would
be justified in not calling another FIOMM
of Assembly—that is lo say, that tbe
Governor would be justified in setting the
constitution as well as the people at de-
fiance, and collect and spend the public
money as he pleases? Tho breath of the
BOOH of Assembly hns given this mail
bread, but he is disposed, like his brother
dependents on public bounty, to quarrel
with his benefactor. Like them be uo
doubt feels the sword of retrenchment;
but he may probably feel with them, before many months shall have expired, the
sword of extinction. It is hard enough
for the public' of Vancouver Island to be
obliged to sell their properly, to deprive
themselves in many instances of even the
necessaries of life, to support official idleness, but when official insolence is added
to the burden, tho thiug becomes absolutely unbeurnblo.

with tho market prices of thc principal articles of diet on the creek :

It tuny be as well to state, in esse there
should be any disciples ol Father Matbew in

Hoping speedily to receive the license above

will doubtless be a more agreeable arrangement for both parties,
Whether there is ur is not nny ground for
the charge of l.'nriboo prices, which I am tbld
has been made against me, 1 leave the readers
of Iho above to determine, and will only suv
In conclusion that the rates of fare will always
bo as low as the state of tho market will
