On Wednesday last an overwhelming congregation
assembled ai the churchof St. James, Piccadilly, to hear
the farewell sermon of Ihe Right Rev. Dr. George Hills,
the newly consecrated Bishop of British Columbia. The
Bishop preached an admirable sermon, in which lie described the safety us well us the danger of a missionary
life, concluding with an eloquent appeal on behalf of
his new mission. The Holy Communion was then administered by the Bishops of London, Oxford, and Columbia, lu the afternoon a large meeting, specially
culled by the Lord Mayor in aid of the work iu llritisii
Columbia, on the, requisition of many of the leading
merchants ofthe city of London, was held in the Egyptian Hall, Mansion House; and the chair was occupied
by the. Lord Mayor, who could not. have more appropriately inaugurated his period of office. The. Bishop oi
British Columbia gave an interesting sketch ofthe history of that Colony, and an account, also of the various
classes of which its population is composed. He described the natives as being a more settled and hardy
race than Red Indians generally are ; and for this reason
he expressed a strong hope that, if the influence of civilization were brought to bear upon them, their extinction might be prevented. Tbe Bishop of Oxford delivered a very fervid and eloquent speech, in which he
advocated the introduction into the colonies, at their
very beginning, of the full .system of the Church of
England ; and delivered nn impressive appeal on behalf
ofthe Indians, towards whom, lie said, our past policy
bad been  fraught   with  cruelty  and  injustice.    The

Saturday Jan. 28th.
George Hunter Cary. Esq.. Attorney General, was
charged by Mr. W. II. Ik-vis. with an infringment of the
law ofthe Colony, by riding ou tbe side-walk. The
offence was admitted, and cause assigned ; but the power
ofthe Magistrate to deal with the case was denied, Mr.
Cary contending that an act applicable to " that part of
Great Britain called England," could not apply to Vancouver Island, unless accepted as a local act. His
Worship stated that there was no local act, the law of
England wns acted upon, and th.'t upon the authority
ofthe Governor.
Mr. Cary further contended that the law is the guide.
and the representative of the Crown could not alter it.
„ . He considered it ridiculous to try to enforcolaws.rr.a le

The growth and prosperity of the Dashaway association  in  this town   is  a  subject
which is deserving of some  notice.    The  extent to which thc debasing habits of intemperance were carried in California, previous to
the establishment of this Society were patent
to the world,  and we  can   but admit, that
there were many, even in our small  community who were fast hurrying themselves  into
a premature grave through an inordinate use
of intoxicating drinks.    Many of these, we
arc happy to hnd, have been rescued from the
jaws of destruction by the timely  institution
ofthe " Pioneer Dashaway Society" of Vancouver Island.    The principles of the  Dashaways differ but slightly from those of ordinary Temperance Associations, but in some respects they have improved  upou all others,
and adopted a system which renders them
more likely to obtain members.   With ordi
not the lirst lime the law had been  strained  when   he
was the parly charged.
Mr. Pemberton lined the accused forty shillings—the
highest penalty he could inflict—and further stated
that the law of England had been acted upon for is
years in Ihe Colony, and until acts are passed by the
local Legislature, be would continue to enforce them in I
that court.
Mr. Cary refused to pay the fine—considering that
his position necessitated his resisting the inlliction of an
illegal penally.
Tuesday 'Jan. 30th.
Daring Buhglaiiy.—An attempt to rob the house of
Mr. Hoflman, draper and ■silk-.iicrccr, corner of Government nnd Yates Street, was made a few nights since.
Hoffman stated that ho was aroused by some person
moving about the papers on tlie table near the head ol
his bed, be jumped up and asked who was there'.'
when the individual darted away and sprung down the
slops, but lie could not see who it was, it being about
3 o'clock A.M.
Sergeant Evans, who with another officer, was going
.... rounds, when lie heard a noise iu thc upper rooms
but not hearing any-indication of alarm, they concluded lo move on, when they saw a man rush down stairs,
who on seeing tbe officers, darted off at full speed.
Evans instantly turned tlie lenso of his lantern upon
his face und got a sufficient glance to describe him.
The officers gave chase keeping the light upon him :
turning suddenly round the corner of Moses' shop, he
.ran round tlio Colonial buildings twice, having evidently studieiftbc track which was strewed with rubbish and lumber, and entered the back part of the
Colonial Hotel, by climbing the fence. 1 here being no
other possible means of his getting to his bed room.
The mutter being canvassed in the morning, Mr. Croft,
one of the proprietors of the Hotel, gave such information to the police that thc prisoner was arrested in
his bed, and brought before his Worship, when the
following evidence was given :—
There was §130 in coin, a gold pen  and ease, pen
knife, and a dirty empty  money bag about 0  inches
long,   with n  circular* bottom; nlao  11
given verbatim below.
He gave his name as Thomas li. Sprngue.    After receiving the usual caution from tho court, he stated that
from the table; also fifteen sov
cts iif bis pantaloons.    This will act as a warning to induce unwary sleepers to lock their doors.
Anotueii Hoiiiieiiv.—The store of Mr. Hoffmann, on
country is good—money will be plentifully forthcoming
ifu guarantee ofa fair rate of interest be given, and the
