(From The London Times.)
It is beyond a doubt that on tlio eighth of
September last the allied British and French
forces bfgan their march on Pekin, and that
this advance is the last fact oi importance
ivhich has been communicated to thc authorities at home' We have now, from official
despatches and irom the letter of our special
correspondent, an accurate account ofthe proceedings up to the eleventh oi September,
when the allied army was at a place only
forty-five miles from Pekin, with the intention
of pushing on immediately for tbe capital
It is pcrfocty plain that at this timo tliere was
not the smallest chance uf a successful negotiation, the former overtures having come to
nothing through tho evident duplicity and
bad faith ofthe Chinese agents. The history
of these transactions is interesting, as showing the character of the people with whom
English traders have had to deal for so many
years. The outcry against tho Chinese War
of eighteen hundred and fify-seven has now
almost died away; even faction is ashamed
to repeat the charges which were advanced
against the European in tho East less
than threo years ago- Kvery succeeding month
has brought to light fresh proofs of the degradation aud wortlilessncssof the Chinese Government, and bus shown that, if Europeans
are to remain in safely in its territory, we
must mako up our minds to resent every insult and to punish every offence committed
against us. Such ns was Yell, such is Kweiliang, and such is Eangki. .Mandarins, whether at the north or south, are not to be
trusted, inasmuch as sincerity in dealing with
1 ai'barians would bo the greatest of crimes in
the eyes of the central (ioveriiinent. If Eng.
lish readers wish for a specimen of the manner in which their countrymen have been
treated in every matter, small and great, for
the last eighteen years, then let them listen
to the history of tbo negotiations tit Tientsin-
At the Tiiku Forts lhe less inflicted on the
Tartar army and been considerable, but the
terror spread among them by the attack and
the murderous anus of the Europeans was
more important. They fled, the officers theni-
Behea making no halt until they had placed
a great distance between themselves and the
Armstrong guns. The letter we print to-day
speaks of the difficulties in the nature of the
country to an advancing force, and the little
use which had been niade of these obstacles by
thcCliine.se. Ilia ing retired from the held in
such haste as to leave every bridge standing,
the Tartar Generals, no doubt, sent such ties-
patches to Pekin as induced the Chinese
Court to feign a desire to negotiate. AVe
heai much of barbarian cunning, yet it would
seem impossible tor a civilized plenipotentiary
ot average capacity to be inveigled by such
shallow devices ns thoso to which tho Imperial Mandarins had recourse on the present
occasion. These personages seem to have
considered that we wore still the English of
eighteen hundred and forty-two and eighteen
hundred and fifty-eight, and that all the ok!
tricks concerning a reference to Pekin and
the limited nature ot their own authority
would succeed in delaying us, ns they had
done before- With these views they began
prevaricating at their very first interview,
in the earl)* part ni' September, Possibly,
the)- may have at lirst obtained some credence, and it may have been under the influ-
enceof Kwciliang's first blandishments thatSir
Hope Grant sent off the despatch which was
the cause of the recent false anticipations of
peace. However, wc are glad to say, for the
credit of our negotiators, that the Mandarins
were quickly made sensible of their mistake,
and taught that when a country like England
is forced into a third war within a term uf
twenty years the consequences are likely to
bo serious to the State whose weakness and
j perfidy provoke the conflict.
As  we have said,  the news of the capture
of tlie Tiiku Eorts  having been carried   to
I'ekin, the Emperor immediately despatched a
Commissioner  lo  tieat for peace'   in  other
j words, to stop the allies at any cost of false an-
Isurances,  or promises intended to bo broken.
■Immediately after the battle the advanced guard of the
JAllics hnd marched up to Tien-tsin, und with it had arrived Lord  Elgin nnd Hi,roc Gros.    On  their arrival
Ithcy wore informed Ihat Kweiling, who hud negociated
file  treaty   of 1858, was coming  down   from   Pekin.
finis ollicer was represented as being intrusted with the
(ugliest   powers.    On t'-is Lord Elgin  wrote  to  him,
pj-'ing the demands of England, the principal nrticlc of
•'Inch   wns   the  payment of 8,000,U0O   tads,   about.
.--,•111(1,Ono sterling,    When Kweiliang arrived at Tien-
|sin  he informed the Allies that he and H.uig-fiih,  the
I.ovcrnor of the Province, had been appointed to treat,
Tint  that  thoy were icatly to commence  ncgociations.
peril E|gjn returned tin answor that negociations coulil
lot take place until iho Commissioner, had accepted the
jnlish   proposals,  which they accordingly  declared
fcmselves ready to do.   On the (lib, it appears, every-
P"'B bad  been  settled,  and every one  in authority
P°"glit that there was nothing more to do but to  send
fp army buck to India or to England,   Then the Com-
f,S8 oners begun to equivocate.    Tbey had no power to
Pneliido a treaty. Their credentials wore not sufficient,
l'u they must, refer to the Imperial Court.    Lord Elgin
landed  that one million tools -should be paid before
°n-tsin was evacuated by tb   Lsrltlata troops.   This
•mition, which   bad been accepted by  thc  Connnis-
n°rs,  was  an   evident sourco  of embarrassment to
>m.   They were ready to subscribe to anything the
I mrraanoe of which was fixed at n distant date, when
r .WOWltthi  would be far away from the  noighbor-
loa  ofthe  Imperial  presence,     but  tho  immediate
kment of one million tuels was like taking so  many
drops of their heart's blood. The despatch of Lord Elgin has been published, and, in case there should be a
party willing to centime the continuance ofthe war wc
point it out for perusal. Hi_ Lordship soys that having demanded a million tuels before the evacuation of
Tien-tsin, 'after-some conversation, in which they betrayed manifest signs of uneasiness, they announced to
my jecretaries that they could not stipulate that the
convention should take effect without previous ratification, and that, so far from being ready to sign it on the
8th inst., they could not do bo till it bad been submitted to tbe Emperor for bis approval.' Much discussion
followed, in which the Chinese showed such evident
signs of duplicity, that, 'to check this poliry bv an net
of vigor was manifestly indispensable, unless we intended to forfeit all the advantages secured by our advance to this point; ' and, accordingly, orders wcre at
once given by Lord Elgin to advance to Tnng-cbow,
and ' to enter into no further communications with
them ti ntII I had reached that place.'
Unusual promptitude seems to have mrrked the conduct of the authorities on this occasion. The rupture
of negotiations took place on tbe 7tb, and on the 8th
the army moved forward on Pekin. On the 9th
Lord Elgin followed, and on the 11th the outposts of
the allied force had reached a place called Yung-tsun,
45 miles from Pekin. We may presume, then, that by
the middle ofthe month the English and French were
under the walls ofthe capital, and that, if the Chinese
wcre disposed to resist, another battle must have been
fought about this time. The anticipation in camp
seems, however, to have been, that the Tartararmy had
been too much frightened to venture on any further resistance. The country people, who received our troops
hospitably enough, reported that the Tartar army had
been entirely cowed by the European artillery, and it
is most probable that the appearance ofthe allies in the
neighborhood of Pekin will be the signal for other overtures on the part ofthe Imperial Mandarins. Il is possible Ihat ncgociations may have taken place which
will allow the army to re-embark before the approach
of winter, but, on the whole, we cannot be sanguine of
any such issue of the campaign. It seems far more
likely that the capital has been taken and occupied,
and that it will be held through the whole winter.
Nor can there be any reason to anticipate danger from
such n proceeding. The enormous city into which the
allies will pen,-irate is capable of giving shelter to
fifty times more than will visit it. and it Is
to be hoped for the credit ofthe Commanders, that they
will not scru;,lc to take possession ofthe best quarters
lor themselves and the troops under their command.
Thc Chinese Government has no claim on i ur forbearance. Its conduct has been marked throughout by
every form of duplicity, and il is our duty to teach the
besolled Emperor and his favorites that the rights of civilized nations cannot be violated with impunity. Wc
trust to hear by the next mail thai the two Generals, in
full occupation of Pekin. have imposed such terms on
the enemy as will ensure its good behavior for many a

Why are Diseases to Fatal in Tropical Climates t
Merely because we prescribe for their effect, instead
of their cause, and try to relieve symptoms instead of
triking at their root. The action of these Pills is precisely the reverse. They expel from the secretive organs and the circulation the morbid matter which produces inflammation, pain, fever, debility, and physical
decay; and the basis of disease being removed, its
manifestations vanish. While ordinary remedies only
afford a temporary respite to the sufferer, whereas these
Pills annihilate the disorder.
Ill Health in Hot Countries.
Frequently arises from nervous disorders affecting
the action of tbe heart and deranging the whole animal economy ; these fine Pills will restore the nervous
systom however deranged, and bring back health and
spirits when all other medicine has failed.
Bilious and Liver Complaints.
Frequently lead to the worst phases of human Rnf-
fering, yet how many in the East and West Indies, and
most of our Foreign Possessions, are thus afflicted, unknowing the means of cure placed within their grasp;
such should take a few boxes of these Pills according
to tbe directions given in the books, and their ailments
will quickly leave them.
Dropsical Swellings and Tarn of Life.
This is a most disastrous period in woman's history,
it destroys thousands, the whole of the gross humors
collect togtther, and like a tide sweep away health and
life itself, if not timely and powerfully checked. The
most certain remedy for all these dangirous symptoms
is Holloway's Pills. Armed With this great antidote,
the fiery ordeal is passed through, and the sufferer is
once more restored to the possession of unimpaired
health. These Pills are equally efficacious in all female complaints, and obstructions at the dawn of
Stomach and Liver Complaints.
These are complaints of the million, particularly of
those in warm latitudes ; few escape them ; and, if
neglected, they lead to innumerable dangerous maladies
But why neglect thero when Holloway's Pills will eradicate them as certainly as water extinguishes fire?
Tbey relieve the bowels, purify the fluids, and invigorate the system and the constitution at the same time.
Tbey are admitted by virtue of special decrees into the
dominions of despotism, and thus have become a great
household remedy.
Dysentery and Bowel Complaints.
These famous Pills should be taken once or twice a
week by oil classes in this part of the world, by which
means, none need fear the attacks of these direful

However unfortunate New Westminster has been in
her late attempt lo elect delegates ton Rritish Columbia
Convention, the blame is  not for a moment to be attached to the great majority of her resident inhabitants,
nor the recent proceedings considered ns unfitting her
or the  people of Rritish  Columbia   Cor   representative
government,     The  whole  secret of the  failure of the
elect',,,„ rose from  llie  want of a  recognised power to
regulate  its details.     The absence of governmental
authority   threw    the    proceedings    into   the   hands
of a mob, iho majority ot' whom ha,I as much right to
vote as thoy had a knowledge of those for whom they
voted.    In  the  most  orderly country  or  town in the
world  the   same  irregularity  and  gross   misconduct
might just as readily,  under similar circumstances,
have taken place.    If the proceedings in question have
ut ail attracted tho attention of government, we would
wish to impress on its attention the facts we have just
stated.    Wo nro well aware of the interpretation which
a stranger taking a cursory glance at the affair would
naturally  put upon   the  whole  transaction,  and  the
caution, as wo have already stilted, the government will
be likely to evince in graining legislative powers to the
colony ;   but much   as  wo condemn the unscrupulous
means practised at the election, wc entirely acquit that
class, ivhich, had wo representative government, would
form nine-tenths ot the voters, of any participation  in
the disgraceful conduct which  characterised the partisans of one or two of the successful candidates.    AVe
bring forward these statements to prove that, however
much appearances mny have told against us, the claims
ofthe liritish population ofthe colony to representative
government uie nol a whit injured by recent events.
A Legislature is an institution which  must be given
to us sooner or later, and it all depends upon the \icws
which His Excellency Governor  Douglas  may hold  of
our fitness for self-government, whether we obtain thc
boon iu 1801 or ISO'S.    One thing, however, is certain,
the colony cannot progress without it.     And whether
we are at present capable or incapable, we cannot hope
for any great degree of prosperity in  the  absence of a I
Legislative Assembly.    The lirst and paramount drawback to British Columbia is thc want of money on the
part oftho government.    This can only be remedied by
a loan ; and a loan large enough to be niade available
in the developing of the colony's resources can only be
obtained through u Legislature.     To say that tbe progress of a country is but the progress of an individual
in a collective sens,;, is only re-iterating a truism ; were
we, therefore, to   scan   closely the lives  of any of the
numerous successful men  of tho world, who rose from
a state of penury, wc would lind it to be invariably the
case that more time and labor was expended in accumulating the lirst few hundred pounds than in amassing
the whole of the subsequent wealth.     Wc nre just in
lhe position of the man with glowing yet feasible
schemes of advancement, but who cannot carry them
out for luck of means.    Had we proper communication
with the interior, so that provisions could he obtained
nt an ordinary figure, our mining  population would
number thirties where wc now have units—this increase
nlong wilh road facilities would create farmers on every
available  piece of  agricultural   land, nnd trade  and
ities than on Exchequer bonds or other securities of
the state ; but had we a Legislature, and were debentures to be issued bearing C per cent., tbey would
readily sell at par. By this means we could obtain with
the utmost ease the loan of $1,000,000, the interest of
which al i; per cent, per annum would amount yearly
to $00 000. In addition to this a sinking fund might
bo established at 2 per cent, to pay of the debt, and
which would amount Io $20,000, making a total of
$80,000 or £10,000 to raise annually—which in 25
years would pay the whole indebtedness. With one
million of dollars judiciously expended, the navigation
of the Fraser could be made equal to almost every necessity— permsncnt highways could be opened to all
the mining districts, nnd the country widely explored—
agricultural lands could be at once surveyed, and loading roads constructed through them inviting settlement.
Immigration could then be legitimately encouraged
with the knowledge that the immigrant on his arrival
here would witness such evidences of prosperity and
progress ns would determine at once his choice in making the couutry his home. With this increased immigration, our present tariff might be considerably lowered
and still a largo revenue obtained.
Rut let us glance at our present position.     Our income  last year amounted  to  about  £53,000, half of
which, or thereabouts, went towards the construction
of roads, bridges, and other public works.    The verj
temporary and imperfect nature of these works* through
the insufficient sums expended on  them, sufficiently
proves the extravagance of our present sys.em.   Heavy
outlays will be entailed each year to keep our recently
constructed roads in repair, and before live years elapse
we shall have spent an amount on our means of transit
that would in the first instance have enabled us to make
good substantial wngon-roinls   through  the  most important portions of the colony.    Want of money has
also necessitated the government to issue bonds for the
construction of public works, bearing au  exceedingly
high interest.    Tins in itself limits the competition on
the part of contractors to such a confined scale that wo
pay about 25 per cent, more than, had we ready cash to
offer the contractors, the works would cost us.    By obtaining such a loan as we have spoken of at (3 per cent.,
wc have no hesitation in saying that fully 50 per cent,
of our present revenue would bc saved in the construction of   our means   »f communication.     The   mere
'act of   so  great   an   outlay in   the   colony   would
give such an impetus to trade that we would have little
reason to complain of slow acquisitions to our population.    The unfortunate miner would have ample opportunity to recruit his finances and again essay his luck
on the gold fields, nnd an air of industry and prosperity would  nt  once be engendered that would give the
country a foundation and stability it can never hope to
obtain under the present circumstances.
Tn e more we look at the land question tho more  are
we  impressed  with  the idea that on the   forthcoming
Land Proclamation will depend in a grert measure  the
prosperity of the colony.    The Home Government, with
an enlightened  liberatity,  has given  His Excellency
Governor Douglas the power to reduce the upset  price
of land  in British Columbia to one  dollar—thus out-
stripping in magnanimity, by a quarter ofa dollar per
acre our enterprising neighbors of tho a,ljoini,iig Stales
and Territory.    We  sincerely hope that   our  Government  will not allow itself to be carried away with  the
idea  that tho sales of land are to bc only looked  upon
as so much means uf increasing the colonial  revenue—
j that cheap land will interfere materially with  this  ol,-
i ject and should  therefore bc,   as much  as  possible,
guarded  against.    To  carry out the liberal scheme  of
the  Home  Government and make a dollar an acre  the
upset price of land, will, wc feel convinced be the  only
way of satisfying the people of this colony on this   part
of the  land  question nud will be thi  only  moans  of
drawing that population to our shores, which for want
ofa liberal land system, have been so often driven  un-
j dor a  foreign  ll„g.     On the  Governor's  lust visit to
Hope    it    was   then  stated    that   the    upset   price
would be reduced to one dollar aud a quarter an acre.
We  can   scarcely believe  that  His  Excellency, whose
ideas on the land question arc liberal in  the extreme,
would fall into the error of embody! lg this statement
in the forthcoming Proclamation.   The mere advantage to the colony of one quarter of tl  dollar on every
acre sold, would be but tin atom in the scale against the
gain lo the population which the simple fact of being
below the American price would confer.     Our legislators have just one great object in view, and that is, to
increase as much as  possible our population.    Whatever scheme tends towards a permanent immigration
will be thc one  most  worthy the attention of government.    Cheap land and the facilities  for settling on it
will always  bc the  great attraction to  induce tho inhabitants of Great  Britain  to emigrate.      Let us but
show that we have land at a  lower  rate  than either
Canada or the United States, and the fruits will appear
in a rapidly increasing population of farmers.

The Council then adjourned.

Silvku Cots.—Wo learn that upwards of £7000 in silver coin is expected shortly from England by II. M, S.
Road to BintitAitD Islet.—The Royal Engineer., are
progressing rapidly with ibis work. The road has already reached tho Brunette and if we may judge from
the despatch already evinced, we may expect its completion before many weeks are over.
Last Yeaii's Expenditure.—The expenditure on public works last year by the British Columbian Govern-
mant amounted to £23,000.
Burial of a Roval Exgixkeii.—The funeral of the
unfortunate man Dully who was found frozen in the
snow on the first port '.go, and whose body was brought
to New Westminster, took place on Sun,lay last. Tho
deceased was escorted to the grave by the whole de-
dctaclimeul, the band playing the usual dirge.
Custom-; Revenue.—Tho Customs revenue for the
week ending Jan. 12th were Duties, £303 18 0; Harbor dues, f"l 14 8; Head money, £3 4 0; Tonnage
dues,    £24   6   0.
Ventriloquism.— Mr. Kenyon, the celebrated ventriloquist, gave the citizens of New Westminster one ol his
amusing entertainments on Thursday evening last.
He is certain)^ a groat adept in the art, and his appreciative audience wcre highly delighted with the performance.
Hudson Bay Sale.—The sale of Hudson Ray lots at
the Port, Victoria, took place on Wednesday last, und
brought the large amount of $120,000.
hia heard the cries of a squaw at some distance and
immediately got out of bed and in company with sonic
Indians and ihe half-breed Bernard proceeded to where
the squaw was. Tliere thoy found the body of Quam
lying with his face on a pool of mud and water nt the
head ofthe'lagoon ' amidst a lot of logs and slicks.
The party removed the body to Mahia's hut, Bernard
bearing up the head. To bring back life lho usual Indian remedy of applying fire to the most sensntivc parts
of the body was then had recourse to and lhc body in
parts showed the evidence of this treatment.
Ur. Benson, the coronor, sworn by himself, stated
that he had examined iho body and found four scalp
wounds and several cuts upon the nock nud shoulders,
but in his opinion not sufficient to cause death.
Tho room was thou cleared that lho jury might eon-
si,ler tlioii verdict when all at once they discovered
that thoy were only eleven ; one having slipped out and
gone to dinner. When the missing juror was brought
back tho coronor proceeded to work just as he had
commenced in the morning, the jury was re-sworn, lho
evidence gone over, and again the jury got lho case to
themselves. A verdict was quickly returned,—-Died
from blows Irom a club and stabs I'rojti a knife.'
The constable was the first while man who saw tho
body, and, although in attendance was nol sworn !
On Tuesday Bernard was brought up before Justice
Franklyn for examination, as being implicated in causing the death of Quan,. The evidence was similar lo
that brought forward at the inquest wilh the exception
of that given by deceased's squaw, who now prevaricated, contradicted her former statement, and oven refused to answer questions put by his Worship.
Constable Gotigh now for Ihe first tune sworn, stated
that on Sunday morning when he first saw the body,
found only Iw,, small wounds on the scalp, and that
having visited thc place where the body was found in
company with some Indians, was shown a log wilh two
throe ! protruding knots, which ho thougth corresponded wilh
tho two wounds in deceased's head, but that on a subsequent visit t,, tho body ho found several other wounds
on iho so,dp and .houlder3 which Wore uot there when
ho first examined it,
During Mahia's examination tho Rev. Mr. Robson
asked permission of the Magistrate ti put some questions, when some disc, -ion arose as to iho propriety
of this. The Rev. gentleman staled that whore he had
boon acting in his missionary capacity it was usual for
missionaries to put such questions as ho was about to
propose. Justice Franklyn Ihcn asked bim whether
his questions wore for the prosecution or defence, when
ho stated that thoy wcre lor lhc prosecution. Wilh his
Worship's sanction the Rev. gentleman then asked thc
prisoner if his sleeves were tucked up when be entered
.Mania's hut, and whether Ilis hands had not boon recently washed? Prisoner answered that he did not
know. Tho Rev. gentleman also nsked witness Mahia
where prisoner's cap was found, aud was answered,
about a yard from where deceased was found.
Mr. Purqunr then claimed as his right, that as the
Rev. Mr. Robson had boon allowed to put questions for
the prosecution, bo should be allowed to put a question
for the the prisonor, and asked the witness Muhi.i whether there was moro than one cut on deceased's head
when the body was removed to his hut? Witness answered, no.
The prisoner was thou committed to lake his trial for
murder or n, inslnughter.
The prisoner throughout has asserted his innocence.
On the afternoon of Saturday the 13th,  the Rev. Mr.
Robson   lodged  information witli Cap.   Franklyn  that
two Indians wore drunk and lighting in a chiefs house,
and  otherwise  disturbing the peace,   when   constable
Gough was immediately ordered to proceed to thc place
and take them into custody.    After being locked up in i
the   bastion till Monday afternoon,  they wore  brought
beforo the magistrate, but ns not the slightest  evidence
was produced to show thut  the peace   had  boon   disturbed, his   Worship acquitted them of thc thc charge,
bul lined one of them $10,   the value of lhe eon-table's
coat which had boon destroyed in resisting thc arrest.
His Worship passed a reprimand on the Rev. gentleman for laying au information which ho could mil instantiate. In the meantime tho Indian, who has heon
long a valued servant of the Hudson's Bay Company
here, not seeing tho philosophy of having to pay sio
for defending his liberty against „u encroachmemt
'which he cannot understand, is packing np his nil with
the intention of finding u place where there will be fair
[day for Iii in or law for none.
li  is a  pity thai tho Rev. gentleman should  not  be
satisiiod with  what he was  licensed  lo do in oilier
countries,   namely pulpit nnd oar practice, but that he
must go fishing for cases for magisterial enquiry.

Registration  of Dked3.—Some little time ago we
mentioned it was tlie intention of Government to establish an ollice in New Westminster for the registration of
deeds.    We are sorry that sueh an institution lias been
so long delayed,  and only  hope that  the Government
will lose  no time  in making amends  for past neglect.
The necessity torn registry office is becoming every day
more urgent.    Both seller and buyer of landed property
in the colony, arc placed nt immense  disadvantage in
their business transactions.    Witli an office for the registration of deeds, mortgages, judgments &c. how much
easier it would befor those who desire to borrow money
on their freeholds to obtain it, und at a much lower rate
of interest than they can under the present mode.    The
liability of  pioperty could bo easily ascertained,   and
those who desired  to lend would have  no excuse for
charging an  additional   percentage  for risk,  over and
above the actual value of money.   It is well known that
in the neighboring state of California,   the high rate of
interest at  which  money  is  held,   and at which it is
loaned, are almost altogether caused by thc insecurity of
property. The same causes produce the same effects here;
but while  in their case   the cause is almost irremediable,   in  ours  it  becomes a matter of very simple
solution.     All payments of the courts for which real
estate  could be held  liable  should be also  registered
against sueh estate, so that purchasers cou'.d be aware
of every incumbrance affecting their intended purchase
commerce would shortly flourish to nu extent unknown , Tll-rc ;g ]10 CXC1]8C m the

in any other new country. To accomplish all this is,
we think, no very difficult matter. Money at present
in England is only worth on English securities 4 per
cent, per annum. Of course capitalists in Great Britain require a higher rate of interest on colonial sccur-
part of government for delaying the establishment of these offices throughout
the colony. They are entirely devoid of governmental
expenditure with the exception of a small sum for fireproof B„fes, and hooks ; and we, consequently, look
forward to immediate steps being taken for their general
establishment in Britibh Columbia.
Ou Saturday night our harbor was visited by II. M.
Gunboat [forward from a cruise round the Island. She
was short Jf provisions having taken on board the
crews of two wrecks amounting to forty-two souls,
whom she had picked up during the course of her trip.
After taking in fresh provisions and coul she started
for Victoria about midday on Sunday.
On Sunday morning the quiet of our town was disturbed by the intellig .nee being brought in that the
body of a Nanaimo Indian named Quam had been
found with such evidences upon it as left liltle doubt
that foul means had been used, and from what transpired during the day, a half-breed named Bernard from
New Westminster or Langley was taken into custody.
On Monday an inquest was held before acting Coronor Ur, Benson.
Williwitsa squaw oftho deceased, stated that, on Saturday, Quam and Bernard hud been drinking together,
nnd thai later in the day Bernard had tried to take improper liberties with her.
John Duncan, a white man, stated that deceased
came lo his house about half past .leven o'clock on
Saturday night. Duncan's squaw went out for the purpose of conducting deceased home, and was, in about
ten minutes, followed by Duncan, who, ou overtaking
the party discovered a third now struggling with Quam

or defence he wns unable to say. Saw no weapons of
any sort. Only flashed his lamp upon the two struggling and immediately returned home with his own

Sin,—A letter signed, ' B. C.,' appeal's in the Colonist
of Tuesday, January loth, requiring some notice, iu
consequence oi' au untruth it contains, which, if uncontradicted, is calculated to injure the reputation of
the Governor of this colony. The writer states the expression ' white-washed Yankees' is a favorite term of
Governor Douglas applied lo Canadians and ortier
colonists. Iu common with all to whom I have, spoken
o„ the subject, I venture to assert, that such words
have never been uttered by thesGovornor. British
subjects, whether Canadians or oilier colonists, have
always been equally welcomed by him.

To thc. Editor of the New Westminster Times.
Sin,— Tho  Semiahmoo  elected delegates  of  New
Westminster to the Convention which was to have been
but  which  they destroyed, have  begun  to  give  us a
specimen of that, transcendent ability which every one
was expecting.    They have got a secretary to do what
was found impossible for the ' delegates' to perform—
write a legible hand.    So far thoy have achieved a decided success.    They have met secretly and silently iu
a room  8  by,10, and  practised oratory to  two  office
stools and a broken chair.    On each of these occasions
they have reiterated an oath—a fearful oath  over the
bones of a defunct  bullock—that as Brutus rid Rome
of the tyrant, Julius Ciesar, so even they—they thc foreign ambassadors from Semiahmoo—were determined
by  fi.reo invective, threatening denunciation, and, if
necessary, although the euro would be an extreme one,
subscribing four bit., each a week to start a paper for
the destruction ofthe fell tyrant, the Governor of British Columbia.     As  I  looked through a cranny in the
door of the building—my curiosity being impelled by a
fearful suspicion that something was going wrong—my
blood ran cold and my heart almost ceased  to beat, as
I   saw   Cassius — the   real, genuine   Shakespearian
Cassius—lift the thigh bone of the departed ox, amidst
the su],pressed sensation and applause ol the oilier conspirators—and whirling the relic, of by-gone strength
round his animated head, poured forth such a torrent
of what must have been,   from thc enthusiastic gestures, living eloquence, although lhc languago was  in
a tongue  not easily understood by II. B. M. subjects.
Brutus' speech to the mob was then rehearsed with
some slight variations.    A division of sentiment, however,  occurring between thc conspirators, Mark Anthony's oration was looked upon  with  favor by some,
and Mark came forward, a plain, blu.it man :   ' Friends,
Indian whisky-sellers at Point Roberts, nnd countrymen,
lend me your cars—' ' Hullo !   old fellow, you have no
occasion to call for cars, nature has  been sufficiently
bountiful to you on that ' head.'   (Loud cries of traitor!
turn  him  out 1   intermixed with classic sounds resembling ' You  bet,' here  caused unutterable confusion.)
A little more rehearsing was done, and a resolution was
passed congratulating themselves upon the energy and
rapidity with which they had gone to work.   Scarcely
about 10 years of age, is frank, sincere, vigorous, temperate, an early rise,-, and a keen sportsman with Run
and dog. lie bears lho fatigues of a long day's shoot-
ing better than meny of the most active mountaineer!
and he generally stalls on sueh excursions before sun'
rise. Ho makes a light breakfast, merely a piece of

like a peasant without soiling at table; but he aliraw
makes a hearty dinner, laying aside all ctiquotte, with-
out court or chamberlains. On Sunday, the 'day of
general receptions at the palace, the doors are thrown
open at 11 o'clock, and anybody who feels disposed
may enter till three, If any person desires a private
audience he must npyly by letter, and on the morrow
or following day ho will surely obtain it, for Victor Emmanuel opens nil his letters himself. One day, when
out shooting, he met a peasant, who, on seeing the
King bring down two partridges, right and loft,"with
his double-barrelled gun, went up to him and snid,
1 You shoot well, you do.' ' lt was not amiss, was it?'
I responded tho King. ' Perhaps you could rid me of a,
I fox which steals my hens'.' ' ' Most willingly,' 'If vou
1 do, I will give you two muttoe.' |Tof.) 'Agreed' said
; the King.   • I will come to-morrow morning with mv
■ dog and shoot yonr fox.' ' Give mo your hand on iij'
: said the • nn, The King immediately shook hands
I wilh him. and true to his word,   went 'next  morning,
found   the fox,   nnd shot it.    ' Thank God for that I1
exclaimed  the peasnnti  • Vou have fairly  en rued your
j two mint -0. and there Ihey are.'    The kin;, took tlicm,
nud   said,    ' This is the first money   1   ever  enrnc-d.
■ Then in..sing up the pieces In his hand, he nddeil,—'Il
i-   a pleasure to receive money one has  fairly earned.'
| Tho next day, in exchange for the two lnutiee, His He-
i jesty sent a iliess, necklace, and earrings for the pens-
ant's wife. It is impossible to bc more easy of eccesi
than Victor Emmanuel.    He goes out alone on foot nnd
j enters the theatre at the public door, tine day, the portress of tho Theatre caught n gentleman in the ait of
j pulling the .-moke of his cigar at boreal, which he had
found in n corner and kept there. Rushing forward
to rescue hor favorite, sho seized the tormentor by the
j arm, and on his tun,ing round recognized the King.'—

Voltaire resided at Geneva. One day he saiil to some
friends, in a boastful, sneering  tone: " Before the be-
i ginning of thc nineteenth century Christianity will hew
disappeared  from the   face  ofthe  earth I"    Well,in
i that same l,o,i-e. iu that same room where these impious words wcre spoken, what think vou there is to-day?
A largo deposit of Bibles. The sacred books fill the
house from lho Moor to tbe coiling! So much for Voltaire's prediction. The Bible Society of 'Geneva held
lis forty-third anniversary on tin: lHth of June last.
I'll Risk the (loos.—I, o Ting, a convert and preacher

ol the idols to pieces, and then we snail see whither it
has not power to revenge itself." While Ihey wore hurrying him along, with insults nnd derisive shouts, be
said; "I do not four yourt idols of wood, and stone,

any number of them to pieces, if you will give men

For the cure  of Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Constipation
Loss of Appetite «.r nny Bilious Complaints
arising from n morbid action of the
Stomnch or Bowels.
All of these diseases you will soon be relieved of, by
use of these Bitters, ns per directions on the Bottles.
This great anti-dyspeptic is the result of profound and
elaborate study of one of the most celebrated physicians
of .he present century, in thc accomplishment of which
he lias -.pent both time and money. We do not hesitate
to affirm that where Dr. Rosenbaum's Stomach Bitters
are used, a ense of Fever and Ague cannot occur. It
has been analyzed by the most scientific chemists in
the Medical Faculty, and is now prescribed by nine-
tenths of thc Physicians of thc land. Try them—test
thein—on your constitution, and go your way rejoicing.
Are you dyspeptic 7—take i-Iicse Stomach Bitters.
Are you bilious ?—try one of these bottles and be relieved at once.
Are you annoyed by indigestion or constipation 7—
remove the cause by a free use of the Bitters.
Have you fever and ague 7—cure nnd prevent this
destroying disease by the free use of these Bitters.
The superiority of these Bitters has induced many to
put up a spurious article. To prevent deception in
future, each cork will bc branded, " N. B. Jacobs 4 Co."
And the labels will bear our own signature, without
which, none are genuine.
Caution.— Consumers of Rosenbaum's Bitters are
cautioned against the many counterfeits now afloat ip
the market, and especially against a cheap nnd worthless article called Roscnschf's Bitters, put up in this
by Messrs. Turner Bro.'s, with the avowed intention of
preying on the well-earned reputation of Rosenbaum's
Bitters, as a remedial agent in all cases of Dyspepsia
and similar diseases. The genuine Rosenbaum has our
name branded on each cork, and our signature on each

I dreamed of bim :   bis wandering feet were failing
With journeying long, through wind and desolate rain
His lips made answer to the night-winds. wailing.
Willi tremulous sighs of prayer, awoke in pain.
The pathway led through forests deep before him,
Through  valleys  strange, and under stranger skies ;
Wild boughs .-hod all thoir gloom of darkness o'er him,
Thc owl's weird voice arose in lonely cries.
He beard the river's sullen lidos, that flowing
Seemed angry murmurs of some sooret pain ;
And saw. afar, the dim and fitful glowing
Of village lights, through autumn haze and rain.
At last his won, limbs failed : and. weary, leaning
Against an elm, bis pain was lost in dreams,
Asleep will, smiles lie know the joyous moaning
Of love's dream-voice, and home-fires—merry gleams.
For in his heart lhe memories that were .-looping.
Awoke  with  home-lights glittering ou their wings ;
And dear love-fancies bold lho Past in keeping—
Forgotten time, joy's uuforgotten springs.
He foil no moro the cold, with limbs n-shivcr,
Homo's threshold opened to his coming loot,
He beard no moro the coldly murmuring river,
Fond voices aud fond hearts gave welcome sweet.
His lips no more made answer to the sighing
Of vagrant winds, for mother's kiss imprest
Thoir silence with bright smiles : bis head was lying
At  homo, upon hor bosom and—at rest.
1 dreamed of him ;  and for my dream's fulfilling
We found at morning in the forest ways
A boy whose lips wero mute, whoso  heart was chilling
In some oulil sleep—a dream of endless days.
Around his brow the curls wero damp and golden—
1 severed one and hid it in my 1,roast—
I kissod tlio sad young lips: their smiles were olden
With life-long grief—death, joy's new youth imprest.
I touched his eyes with lips whoso reverent pressing
Seemed to awaken them as lips of prayer:
Thoy met mine, loving, smiled eternal blessing,
1. whispering, answered, • Love, await me there.'
1 was n child; be was my soul's Ideal,
I nm a child no more, yet si.11 I love
I call 'Anonymous'—the angel Real
Hoars me and. answering, waits for me abovo.
As American Opinion on tiik Prince of Walks.—
The New X'ork Evening Post thus gives the verdict of
the United Slat".- un Iho personal bearing oftho Prince
of Wales:—'The triumphant manner in which young
Albert Edward has pa.-.-od this ordeal has demonstrated
not only that his natural qualities are excellent, luu
thnt ho has boon subjected to a most excellent system
of training. Education, in its most enlarged sense, is
a result. Wo do not look ior ils iUustration in detail.

shall be estimated by thc viands and other nrticles of
diet on which ho has been roared. Tbo intellectual regimen should l,o apparent in the masculine, yet polished,
bearing of its subject, In this sense, wo repeat, the
young Prince who has just loft our shores carries wiih
him indubitable cvidonce of a rare and judicious cultivation, it is iufiuiUly to bis honor, nnd to the credit
of those who have moulded him, thai not one single instance has been recorded of a broach ou his part of the
courtesies ot life, or ofthe slightest display of unbecoming temper to any oue, His demeanor throughout has
completely realized the fair flower of the State, Cheerful, affable, modest, and quiet, he has nevertheless exhibited all thc manly qualities of a cavalier. A superb
horseman, bo out-tripped his companions in his Canadian gallops: a good shot, be bagged more prairie

The most inveterate cases ot bad legs, scrofulous, or
other sores, arc cured, if of 20 yenrs standing, by tin
joint use of the Ointment and Pills. The effect of thi'
unrivalled remedy upon virulent ulcers and sores, isal-

Eruptions on the Skin.
Blotches, pimples, dry eruptions, nnd nil irritation'
of the skin, fade and disappear nfter n few applications
of Holloway's Ointment. In those discs brisk friction
is indispensable. Many ot the ordinary eruptions ore
caused by BupprOSSCd perspiration, and as this penetrating unguent at ones opens the pores, nnd invigorates
the nbsorbenls, it dissipates the intlamnintioii by •
double process. Ladies whoso faces or arms arc disfigured by cutaneous diseases, may readily remove lhe
blemish and restore to the skin its natural tint, flexi-
bllity, and softness, by the use of this safe but power-
ful counter-irritant
King's Evil, Fever Sores.
Iii cases of King's Evil where medicinal waters,
lotions, mid every recipe of pharmncopceia hnve proved
useless, the Ointment will accomplish a thorough cure.
Fever sores heal qnickly under its influence, and i"
relaxing effect upon contracted sinews is truly wonderful.
