Lynching a Corporal.
Il would appear that the mania
for lynching has spread to tho
British Army if the following
account be true:���A corporal ot
the Second Buttalion ol the Prince
of Wales' Leiustcr Regiment
(Royal Canadians), at present
doing duty at Aldorshot, bad, by
his petty tyranniep, rendored
himself an object of aversion to
the meu. Complaints were made
in the usuul military form against
tbe obnoxious corporal, but they
seem to have had no effect.
Finally tho men, convinced they
would find no relief by complaining, determined to rid themselves
of the corporal, Ae the corporal
was going his rounds, he was
seized by lho men, uud attempted
to call for assistance; but ' his
cries were speedily silenced by a
gag. He wus then iuformed of
the fute in store for bim, and, de-
spile his struggles, was dragged
without ceremony to a convenient
spot.   Uorc a noose was thrown
around  his   neck. i>-*H   -**,"V."'

Another Boundary Dispute.
There is likely to be a serious
dispute over ihe boundary between the United States and
British Columbia. A sirip ot 30
miles, forming a portion of tbe
State of Washington, and in which
is situated a large portion of the
town ol Blaine, is claimed by tbe
Dominion. The treaty provides
that the line shall follow tbe 49th
parallel,and iu 1860 lhe boundary
was marked out by commissioners
ot both countries. When they
reached the point of difference
lbe British commissioners found
a line and tbe Americans found
another further south, The latter
yielded, and tho present line wus
established. The British commissioners afterwards claimed
that their instrument had become
deranged,

Interesting :���
The principal objeot of interest U
tbo kiloheu cur, which is a novelty
in arrangement. The car is exterior-
ally mnoh iu the tuunuor of (be usual
baggage cur, having four sliding
doors for tbe entrar.ee of supplies.
Tbe centre iu occupied hy two ini-
mouse cooking stoves, each heiited
by two fires and oontaiuing four
largo ovous. They aro specially designed, and their cookiug cupaoity
can be imagined, when it is stated
that five men cooks are needed for
their attendance. At one end of ibe
car is found tbe storo room, containing uii tho requisites for th'i culinary
art; at the other tho com part meu ts
set aside for tho attendants, aud
arranged in npat oriier; around are
ull tlm shining brass pans and cauldrons neceismy for tbe preparation of
the great qua.ititiej of food required.
Tbis huge kitchen npou wheels is to
be responsible for the complete
"moss" arrangouieuts for tbo troops,
which will tax its capacity to the utmost. The usuul colonist sleeping
oars will be occupied by the men
during their long jouruey. There
ure beveru) marked improvements in
tho fittings of these cars, tbe most
noticeuide of which is a convenient
detachable bracket table, to be fixed
between the seats at meal time, aud
support the plates aud dishes. The
bedding aocommodutiun is both good
aud ample. It oousisti oi a good
hair pillow, inattress und warm gray
blauket rug for each man, This
unique train of oars is to reach Vancouver in time to take ou b ard a
party of two hundred and fifty time
expired marines, accompanied by
twenty five ofiic<-ri>, wbo return to
the Old Country. This company
leave Vancouver on December 5tb,
and ,.i'o expected to arrive in Halifax
on the 15th prox., when they will embark for Liverpool. The Canadian
l'acitic Railway will then have the
transport of a much larger body of
troops on their way to repluce their
comrades whom they relieve, These
will number 400 men and 50 office,/,
and will leave Halifax for Vaucouver
witho,!. delay, about December 18th.
Tbe company are exerting themselves to the utmost for the successful performance of this their initial
experiment in tbe transport of large

28th November, 1801.
Sin,���With reference to your letter
of tho llth ultimo in the matter of
.your title to lots Nus. 7, 8 and 9 in

T a-, directed to inform you that the

you thn title to these lots, but it kw)
boon  decided   by the  Department
Ibat   litlus  to lots at  Revelstoke
secured under deeds from Farwell
are not to 'is confirmed by patent
until a patent feo of $10.00 for each
lot  is  poll,    Therefore please be
good ennnuli to remit hero tbe sum
of $30,00 in payment of patent fees
j und $1 05 as the proportion of lbe
[cost of survey, beinc $1.55 per lot,

of which patents will issue to you
for tho lots in ojiiosiion,
I am, Sir,
Yonr obedient servant,
LYNDWODE PEREBIA,
Assist. Secretary.
It is a hardship, to suy thn least,
that rose who bought tbeir lund
from Farwell years upo, and received deeds from him, should now
bo mulcted in a further sum of $11.-
bo per lot. .But this is uot tbe
greatest injustice, nor ouo that lot-
oivners will complain of to any
great extent. Thn trouble is that
the Provincial Government nt Victoria   WILL   NOT    IlEOlSTEB    THOSE
titles I We want to know the reason
why, Will the Provincial :��� eoretary
bo {���ood enough to explain? Will Mr.
J. M. Ki Hie put in u little time on
this affair und thresh tha thing out,
so that Revelstoke may know what
to expeLt from tho present administration? The lime has come uow for
this laud question to be settled, us
wo are desirous of goiug ahead a
little; but with this incubus bearing
ao heavily npon lis, it is impossible
to make the improvements which ure
only awaiting its removal to be commenced. Owners of lots can get
thoir title from the Dominion
Government by paying the extra
fees demanded; but the holder ol a
titlo which hus uot beeu placed on
record is, iu a must unenviable position, being precluded from silliug,
as no ono would buy. This injustioe
must be remedied, and soon.
