Gamhi.ino is Paris.—The Tribunal of
Correctionitl Police lias just tried two
perrons, uatiiud Siaiiipu, an Italian, born
ut Milan, iigcil 27, and (Jiiena, it naiivo
of Bogota. New Qraoada, aged 31, on
several charges of unfair play at cards.
The former, w!io hud auumed the title of
Count, belongs to an honorable and
wealthy family. Ho came to I'mis some
years back, in order lo avoid serving in
the army, and soon became the iHOCtate
cf gamblers and women of bud character.
Three yenrs ufter he married u young
German lady of considerable fortune.
lived with her for three years at St. Germain, and had two children. Not long
after his marriage, however, he resumed
hi6 gambling habits, and won large sums
from sevcrnl persons,  especially from the
Marqui-!   of ,   a   foreigner,   whose
losses exceeded £3,100, In lliuue triiiin-
uctious lie is (Opposed to have lieen aided
by a Baroness Hurtmann, the widow of
a notorious German blackleg. With her
lio visited the gaming tables of Germany,
nnd dissipated a large portion of his wife's
property. The barouoss was at first included in the present prosecution ; hut as
the evidence against her was inconclusive,
the churgo wus abandoned. The other
prisoner, Guerra, came to Paris in 1858,
and received for some time a yearly allowance Irom his mother, which was
stopped as soon as the latter became
nwure of the kind of Ifu he was leading.
From that time he had no o:her resources
Ihnri those obtained by gambling. Ho
soon became aiitpiniuted with Stampa,
and wus by him introduced in February
last to a Madame T. At her house they
played nt cards with several oilier of her
guests, and won considerable rams. Their
constant good luck excited the suspicion
of AI. Roy, one of Aliulmuc Ts friends,
who watched tbem closely, and saw cards
secretly passed from one to the oilier.
Al. Itoy having communicated liis discovery lo ihe mistress of the house, a
commissary of police was sent for ; and on
examining tlie cards the fraudulent proceedings of tho accused wore proved beyond all doubt. The Tribunal sentenced
each of the prisoners lo 13 months' imprisonment and 60f. line.
Court Favour.—A gentleman who hnd
been long attached to Cardinal Mnzarin,
and was mnch esteemed by that great
miuister, but little assisted In bis liuances
by court favour, one day told Mazarin of
his many promises and his dilatory performances. Tho ciii'dinal, who had a
groat regard for the man, and was unwilling )o loso his friendship, took his band,
and, leading him into his library,
explained to him tho many domaiuis made
upon a person in his station as minister
and which it would be politic lo satisfy
previous to other requests, as they were
founded on services done lo the Slate.
Mnznrin's companion, not very OOnBdent
iu tho minister's veracity, replied, ' My
lord, all tho favour I expect at your
bauds is this, that whenever wo moel iu
public you will do me the honour to tap
ine on the shoulder in Ihe most unreserved manner.' This request was at
once acceded to, and in two or three
years tho friend of tho cardinal became a
wealthy mnn, on the credit of the
minister's attention to him. Munrio
used to laugh, together with hisconlidiint,
nt the folly of the world in granting their
favour to persons on such slight security.
Marriage—' Do yon mean to say that
no man should marry ?' ' No ;—I don't
mean to say that. An eldest son ought
to marry, so that, the property may have
an heir. And poor men should m.irry, I
suppose, as they want wives to do for
them. And sometimes, no doubt, a man
must marry,—when he lins got to bo very
fond of a girl, aid has compromised him.
self, and all that kind of thing. 1 would
never advise any man to sully his honor.1
—Fortnightly Review.
The lock out of the Clyde engineers
and shipbuilders continues, and is having
the most serious results, not only upon
the ship-building trade, but also upon the
malleable iron and coal trades. Most of
the iron works near Glasgow are at a
complete standstill, nnd unless the dispute
is speedily arranged, the poorer classes
must suffer from the loss of their wages.

THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST IU, I860.
IUP» AAWIMtLEISM   Wit   ITS
M1MR11IS.
Riprsnwinklcism, it wonll  nppear, is
not  yet dead.    We have it raising it*
somnolent head occasionally on Vancouver Island, and, with   the usual yawning,
wondering  how  tho  world has gone on,
and what changes huve occurred.    At the
bgrieulturul meeting yesterday we  had a
very good sample of its o-eitiilinn.    All.
K. (J. Alston, Kegistnir Genera! nf Deeds,
made  the  astounding  revelation to the
meeting Ihat a lurtje sum of money  was
yearly sent out of the  colony for article!
that could he raised within it, ami declared
himself   surprised   at   the   circumstance-
The subject hns been  in  daily discussion
for only the last 7 years.   Other gentlemen
followed,   and  although   not  so entirely
oblivious   to   the  past  ns   Mr.   Alston,
showed an astonishing amount nf forgetful-
nf.ss of the Island's history, and of their
own political actions in  times  not  very
long gone by.    We  hud  men, who  not
twelve months ago  were declaring that
nothing in the world could save the conn-
try bul free port in its m.ist unrestricted
sense, calling upon the farmers to baud
themselves together for protective duties
■on every kind of produce that could  be
raised on tlie Island.    The clainnan, Air.
JklcKenzieno longer ago than tlie last Met-
■ chosin election, wns rabid iu bis opposition
to protection in any shnpe, and  Ur. Ash
was elected on this principle, nnd by the
siime men who yesterday passed  in conjunction with himself " protection resolutions."     Air.  Cochrane,  who   yesterday
declared thut there  must  be protective
■duties "on every article we can raise,"
voted  the present session against duties
on several articles of homo produce,  nnd
has  been perpetually  stating  that  with
•union  we  must maintain  our free port.
Air. J. D. Pemberton wrote a long letter
in the Colewst during the Alctchosin election, declaring he could  not adopt the
farmers' views of protection ; but yesterday
he wont to the   extreme   length   of   the
most protective  agriculturist.   With regard   to   Air.   Alston,   any   oue    who
recollects that gentleman's sentiments ou
not   only   free   port,   but   every   other
question of public policy, will be a little
startled at  his newly-fledged liberality.
They will not be startled, however, at the
gentleman's surfeit of politic*.    lie  says
the  country   has  enough of it (it hadn't
when an act hnd 'o be pnssed for Ihe solo
purpose of giving Mr.  Alston  on  office)
and   he   wants   to govern tho Island by
some newly patented  process,  without it.
There is no doubt politics is nasty.   It
sometimes attempts to  get rid of useless
offices;   threatens   dispossessing   even r.
Kegistrar General; and makes determined
sweeps at the official locusts whoso blight
ou the laud has produced more disastrous
results   than  any   evil   tlie speakers of
yesterday    declaimed   against.     Away,
however, with politics—awny with agitation—let   Governor   Kennedy   und   his
officials, including Air.  Alston,  have  the
country to themselves, and all will yet Le
well!
Wo do not desiro lo turn thn agricultural meeting of yostcrday into ridicule.
We know thut many of tho farmers who
attended went with u bona fide purpose
to seo what slops could bo tuken to improve their condition ; but they opened
their eyes lika some of the ipetken when
it was too late. 'l'|ie horse is gone and
tlicy mny as well eonlonl Ihomselves with
loaving thu stable door unlocked.
Through their own vacillation, indifl'cr •
ence, or want of independence in times
past, lhe agricultural interest has been
almost hopelessly injured, and no men
havo mude greater efforts to assist iu Ihat
injury than some of the very individuals
who talked yesterday so flippantly about
fosteiiug and piotccting the farmer. We
have said the action taken is too late ; it
is worse ; it is injurious. No cry for tariff
any more than for free port can now
benefit the farmer or the country ;
but it may, by creating divisions in the
community, at a time when we should all
work harmoniously for one great object
—a total change iu the character as well
as system of our government—do an irreparable injury. It may suit some parties
to endeavor to distract the population, nt
times like the present, with minor objects,
in the hope that the principal and vital
one may be overlooked, but no sensible
man will be led away by the shallow device—and least of al! will he be led away
by men  who have persistently opposed
New Advertisemsnts.

every reform  in   the government of the
country, who have  been loudest in their
shouts to save  the  laud speculator,  in
order that industry should pay tbe tuxes
and   the   unproductive  incubus  go   free.
One of the greatest curses of the country
bus been, indeed, this  very speculation iu
the public land—this  shutting   up   the
most  available portions of the colouy in
their primitive waste.    Had the  buna fide
farmers backed  up  the  men who  were
fighting   their  battles   on   this   question
years ago—had tbey coiuo  forward   like

They did not do so, and what is the consequence ?    Setth'tneut  has  coaie  to  a
atuiid-ltill.    Kvcu the speculator has been
ought in his own toils and cannot sell his
unproductive  acres.    He gels  ulurmed,
and rushes for help to the vory elms he
has  done so much to ruin ;   but   with
the " ruling passion strong in death,'' he
si ill shouts for speculation,  still  beckons
for  '' ship-loads of speculators" to come
and seal up more of the agricultural land
of thc colouy.    In  this he is, as usual,
backed np by that paragon of journalism,
the Chronicle, which this morning declares,
with characteristic effrontery, that speculation in the public  lauds should   be   encouraged, und  that the population echoes
ihe sentiment.   Even in this matter, however, it cannot refrain from being ridiculous.    It first Bays Dr. Davie very fuirlj
stated  the evils of  speculators  holding
Innd   unproductive,   but   suggested   no
remedy j     tlien    that    Messrs.    Pemberton   and   Cochruue   did   suggest    a
remedy    in   the    shape    of   a    special
tax  ou  wild   lands ;    and   lastly,   that
these   same gentlemen   wero    in   favor
of   encouraging   speculators  instead   of
driving   them   nway.    That   is,   Alessrs.
Pemberton nnd  Cochrane  were desirous
of taxing wild land,  so that it would bo
made productive, by  the buna fide agriculturist—in  other words they detired to
get rid of the speculator • but ut tho same
time tliey were for encouraging thc speculator instead of driving him awtiij ! Wheth
er  this is  tho   Chronicle's  logic,   and it
sounds very like it, or the logic of Alossrs
Pemberton nnd Cochrane, it matters but
little.    There  is uo  cluss of peoplo  on
this Island outside the speculators anxious
to see  any portion of the country  held
unproductive ; nor is thero any  class of
people that will  much bestir  themselves
about    thc   resolutions   of   tho   public
meeting.      Theso   aro   brought   forward
nt   a   timo   when   they   can   be of  no
avail   one  way  or   other—too  lute  for
legislative nction  this  session if it  were
desirable, uud too late to induce a single
person to settle on the Boil.    All tho mischief that speculation aid inisgorernment
'jould do any country speculation and mis-
government have done Vuncouvor Islund,
and the people are not likely to go to the
source of all their evils for a remedy.    A
very different course, and ono thut must
extinguish  the very elements which cuine
out  bo  prominently  In  tho  agricultural
meeting, will   have to be adopted, if thc
country is to progress at all.

In this city, at tho Royal Hospital, this
morning, August Kith, of dropsy, Wm. Richards, a native of Cornwall, Kugland, aged 40
years.
ETaOU Tin Konrit Coast.—Tho II.II. Co.'s
steamer Otter, Captain Lewis, arrived down
from her usual trading trip this morning,
-after ao ubseneeof *oniu two mouths. Through
the kindness of Captain Lewis ami Mr. Smiths
the purser, we are furnished with tlie following nicmornnda of the trip :—The Indians
were rather troublesome on ihe trip. Wo arrived at Sitka on tlie 7th July ; no shipping
thore. The Russian (joreruur had left for the
north to visit tlie difTeront trading posts. Left
Stekiu on the 2d August. The miners were
all up the river and doing well. They will be
•down to meet tho steamer on her return in
September. Mr. Scoville wns up the river
preparing to start again for tin: Haas, iu company with Schaff and Collins. Mr. Barrett
came down witli us to Fort Simpson, and intended leaving in a few days for the jjkeena,
to join Mr. Butler there. Tho Otter left Fort
Simpson on tho 7th August, and Kurt Unpen
on thc 14th. II.M.S. Scout, with Governor
Kennedy ou board, arrived at the latter place
on tho same day. She would leave again the
next day for Comox. Thc sloop lied Id,ver
wns at Fort Rupert. Tho Rev. Mr. Doolau
■cunic down as passenger from Mcilukatluh.
Statistical BuiNnsitiso.—At tho agricultural meeting yesterday it was stated that we
import $083,000 worth of produce, all Of
which niouey could be saved by putting on a
tariff. As British Columbia gets the principal portion of this amount, any one can sec
that a tariff without union, as some gentlemen are now talking about, would send the
bulk of the imports direct to .New Westminster, and would diminish the amoiiin culcu-
lated on being saved at least one-hall*. Another statistical blunderer appears iu the
Chronicle this morning, signul " Observer,"
who endeavors to show what great a.Ivan
tagos the Island farmer lias over the farmer of
Washington territory, and in so doing, amid
some other misstatements, gravely declares
that there is a duty of $5 a ton on hay binding at Victoria! When will men endeavor to
learn before they attempt to instruct ?
Ik Oha/iobby—Stewart vs. Walker. This
was a hill for specific performance of n con
tract for sale of a houso in View street, to
which defendant demurred on account of a
defect in the acknowledgment of one of the
title deeds hy a married woman. The question wns a purely legal on6 and involved, as
the Judge said, some nice points. Tho Attorney General, instructed by Mr. Jackson, appeared for Stewart, and Mr. McCreight, instructed by Mr. Bishop, iu support of the
demurrer. Tbe case was going on when wc
went to press.
Nbw Trial.—The motion for a new trial in
the case of Bnnster vs. Joseph Bros, did not
come up to-day, the Court being occupied all
day with a disputed title case between J. R.
Stewart end J. D. Walker.
For New Wkbtiiinster. — The steamer
Alexandra will leave to-morrow morning at
ten o'clock.

■ to bs obtained. Bel for theoakooi
argument lei s soppo s oolon hoi been ob-
tained on Our own terms, where are tbe immense advantages that wonld have resulted
lo   us   from  it?     It  is trilr thnt   1 Hi
duties could, wi'h anion, n i longer be l ivied,
and theic might   be some economy, not near
-o ui'.. it as tticiv imagine, effected in the
government, but if British Columbia th
tll-u-etl iii the arrangement, the ii!-
foeliog towards thi, eolony  wonld bee i
greater than ever, ami under such oircum-
womlghtas well im membess of tbe
foiine race without claws tu the hottest place
heard of tis to hope to be prospon III Of
happy. Resides are we to rush blindly Into
such ti serious engagement without looking
tit ill-- •till k as cell ns the brighter side of tlie
question; have v.. forgotten that tbe debt of
British Oolumba is at least five times tbe
amount of our own, that ths cost of its host
of officials is infinitely larger than that of
ours (wbich is much more than it ought t"
be), but above al', WS -liotilil hear iu mind
that SVOO with union we should still fnrtu
part of the most dlstaat and Isolated colons
of tbe British empire and for which tbe imperial Government has reltorotedly declared
that it menus to do nothing, that is to grant
no aid. Thus we havo ootbiog lo depend
upon but our own resources, wbich on tha
advent of our prcseat lluvctnor WS were invited to "develops," but unfortunately, I am
ati'ii d it will iei|tiiro other meaos tbao we
possess or are likely to obtain from the
mother country to aohlevs that herculean
la-k : if however we aro deficient in tho
physical menus, there is a moral power
which might perhaps be still exerted with most
happy oonseqoeooeSi It is an axiom of the
lltiiish government that colonists inherently
carry witii them the means of self-government
wherever tbey may settle as such. This point
conceded, it would seem but just and reasonable that they should seek tlie measure by
which their welfare can be most effectually
promoted ; and as il is evident we may look
iu vain to our own government, and do not
possess the means ourselves to render available the many sources of wealth which we
possess, wc naturally direct our attention to
thosu quarters from whence wn may look or
hope for material aid.
It baa been frequently ass'rted that if this
colony had belonged to the Doited .States its
actual coalition would have been very dill'cr-
ent from what it is, which I do not think improbable, because I believe that tlie application of coal alone to manufacturing ou an extensive scale would have sufficed to produce
great benefits : but my opinion is that American enterprise and capital would have brought
to light hidden treasures sufficient to stamp
Vancouver Island for ever as one of the richest portions of the Xorth I'ucilic domain, and
I inn inclined to think that much more advantage would have been taken by the government nml people of the United .States of
our geographical position, line harbors,
healthy climate and mineral and other sources
of w. tilth tliiin lias been derived under our
actual rule.
If we are really to lie regarded by the Imperial government, as Mr. Benton represented
the Island, "the derelict of nations,'1 nod 1
think there can be little doubt of i', it is high
time to vindicate ourselves and thc beautiful
land we live in by humbly* praying that our
most gracious sovereign will permit this
colony to be annexed lo the United .Stales,
that it may become an integral pert of that
greal nation whoso government despises not
tlie humblest of her cltlsens.

Vegetable Pain Killer
To the Suffering  Ilumanity of this Ago
has relieved more pain, and caused more
real joy than auy other one thing that can
be named.
Invaluable   Remedy.
Our,first Physicians  use it,  and  recommend
its  use;   the   Apothecary finds  it   first
among the medicines called for, and
tbe wholesale Druggist considers
it a  leading article  of his
trade.     All the dealers
iu medicine speak
alike  in its favor; and its
reputation ns a medicine of great
merit and virtue is fully and permanently established,  and it is the great
Family MediciDe   of the Age-
Every Volunteer should have a bottle, in o»se
of sudden attacks of Disease.

ererrittr's iiloiis to trpwi.-c tha systets
of forecasts iu France, bo as to be enabled to waru tnuriniTs of a ciiuintf Ittt in
twenty-four hours beforehand, having beeu
severely criiici-ed hy Ins oppom
leading to no practical re-nib, the learned
Director of the Observatory, the other
day, rend a long communiration to tbe
Academy of Science on the (Object Two
systems, he observed, had been Bfopoted,
one consisting in announcing the approach
of a tempest the existence of which 1MB*
where was ascertained ; and the other
Imposing the duty of predicting the
weather of s certain day from observations
made at seven a.m. on the day before
>ow, as the northern und tresUrn coasts
of France are often thu first visited by a
hurricane, the mere aMoanoMsecl of nu
existing stcriu would Ic of lit'le avail to
the country, and it wus therefore nb.-o
lutely necissary that the second system
should have a lair triul. In France bud
weathorisahuostnlwaysaccomp.il ied with
a baromeiii'ul depres-ion, the centre of
which, idler crossing the Atlantic, lands,
so to say, iu Europe. The existence of
this depression is ascertainable long before
its arrival here ; bul the direction it will
follow remains a mystery. Will it settle
on the French coast or ou the English
oue, or will it go further north ? This is
what should be known in order to obtain
a sure forecust of Ihe wouther twenty-
four hours hence. What, then, is tho
meteorologist to do f Shall he ttoace
predict bad Weather, or would it he wiser
to foretell line weal her iu the hope that
(the storm will die nwuy f Neither ol
these two courses would bo sale ; all he
can do is to transmit his doubts by telegraph as they are—a course of no practical
utiliiy whatever. Hence the only wuy is
to establish an evening teh graph service,
allowing sufficient time to examine the
despatches arriving from foreign countries.
Jt is in this setiso AI. Leverrier replied to
a question put to him by the Britilb ambassador. 'When,' lie said, 'no perturbation of the atmosphere threatens to
overtuke us shortly, the study of thc
Morning observations, combined with
those of thc preceding evening, Will often
enable ns to give an opinion of the
weather ot the following dny, and to inform the ports that they have nothing (o
fenr. If this piece of Information is not
very important, it will nt Iea6t enable the
mariner to tuke his measures in perfect
security ; and, ou tbe other bund, the
daily examination is necessary to avoid
being suddenly overtaken by bad weather.
If, on the contrary, the state of the atmosphere is unsatisfactory, it may be embarrassing to arrive at o positive conclti-
eion. The shortcomings of a tervico of
absolute forecasts will then become up
parent, because we can only communicate
to the ports the uncertainty winch besets
US. In this case, however, wo think n
supplementary service in the evening
would be efficacious, because successive
warnings might be sent every twelve
hours instead of every twenty-four, und
the exactness required hy skippers would
thus bo attained. The morning despatch,
iu conveying the observer's uncertainty,
would at thc same timo announce that it
second despatch would be sent in the
evening, and thc parties interested would
not fail to wait for it.''
FACTS vs THEORIES.
CoXSEOltAl'lOH    OF     CltUllClIYAKOS.—
Archbishop Whately insisted thut the
consecration of a churchyard meant nothing more tliiin the signing of the deed
which conveyed it to tho Church of
England for its exclusive use, and he has
been known to ride to the ground, dismount, sign, and ride off. Lord l'.edes-
dale now proposes to dispense even with
this slight ceremony ; for ho has brought
in a bill which provides that when lund
is added to it churchyard it shall be considered consecrated ! Wben tho bill
comes down to the Commons we hope to
see added to it a proviso which will allow
of the appropriation of a part of Ihe
added ground for funeral services otherwise than according to the rites of the
Church of England. At present Ihere is
in small country pnrishes no alternative
between providing a cemetery under the
Burial Acts—which may not be wanted
—or continuing tho ancient monopoly.—

"Give me a place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimedes, "aud I will move the
world." " Give me pure and unadulterated
drug*," says Medicus, of the olden time,
••aud I will cine lllSMSB."

was no place to rest their lever on, either to
move the world or cure disease. .Mechanism

was but ain.ili'i nunc for sorcery,

But these latter days have borne unto ns

tis crew ever dreamt ol in Ifcelr maddest phi-

lb lined in the laboratory of Dr. MagLiel,
the linear materials known in Ihe medical pro
'ession are obtainable by any one. His
llillious, Oj-pi'plic, and Diarrhoea Pills stand
unrivalled, and his Salve operates with magical effect upon burns, scalds.and all sores and
ulcers of the skin.
Id fact, we think Maooiil's Pills and Salve
are the woider of this century, nnd we are
iiti|.[.y in the thought that many others of onr
brethren of the erett agree with us. We would
earnestly counsel that all families provide

A Nkw ami fiiusn Keocii in MsdiouisI—
Dr. Maggiel in iho I'oundc. ol anew iMetli.nl
system. Thn <iuniilitiirlaus, whose vast internal doses enleeblc the stomach and paralyse
Ihe bowels, must givi, precedence to the man
who resiores health nnd nppetite, with from
one to two of his extraordinary Pills, and
cures tho most virulent sores witli a box or so
ol his wonderlul nnd all healing Salvo. These
two great specifics of the Doctors are fast superseding all the stereotyped nostrums of the
day. Extraordinary cures by Maggiel's Pills
and Salve have opened the eyes of the public
to the inefficiency of the (so called) remedies
of others, and upon which people have so long
blindly depended. Maggiel's Pills are no ol
the class Ihat are swallowed by the dozen, and
of which every box full taken creates an absolute necessity for another, -One or two of
Maggiel's Pills suffices to place the bowels in
perfect order, lone the Btomacl., create an appetite, and render the spirits light and buoyant! There is no griping, nnd no reaction in
tlie form of constipation. If the liver is nf-
fected, its functions are restored; audit the
netvous system is feeble, it is invigorated.
This last quality makes the medicines very
desirnble for the wants of delicate females.
Ulcerous and eruptive disfases nre literally
extinguished by tfce disinfectant power of
Maggie's Salve. In fact, it is here announced
that .ii^sfKlei's Uillous, Dyspeptic
ond Diarrhea Pills cure where all
others fail. While for Burns, Scalds, Chilblains, Cnts and all abrasions of the skin
Maggiel's Naive is infallible. Sold by
