THE KINO OF NAPLES.
(fin. the I.or.dm Times.)
Among the summits of our Derbyshire
highlands stands the ruins of n mountain.
It was never quito an Alp, but even within
tlie reach ofhuman tradition itissaid to have
been a goodly peak. The tourist who explores that cavernous district still pauses to
gaze nnd wonder at tlio mass of rubble into
which that shivered mountain lias fallen. It
was not split into fragments by any tremendous volcanic explosion; no riven rocks or
large boulders lie about; tliere is nothing
grand or picturesque in tlie ruin. Some internal weakness seems to have operated to
destroy the cohesion of all the constituent
atoms of that towering sham. Operated upon by no fbrco which had any effect upon the
limestone rocks around, yielding to some
influence scarcely greater than that ofthe ordinal*}' attraction of gravitation, one day it
began to ciumble and dissolve; and now it
lies choking the valley, a prostrate mass of
mad,- ,;!.e lli'at .liotirbon sovereignty which
yesterday raised its head so high in .Naples and
Sicily, .and to-daycrumbles without a touch at
the mere menace of an insurgent chief. Such
events, at rare intervals, do happen both in
physics and in morals, but never without
their causes more or less occult and never
without our special wonder. Tho passing
away of the Kingdom of Naples is liko a story
counsels a reigning prince could be more certain of the
solidity of the Throne at the foot of which he stands
thnu were the Mi.listers who encouraged Francis of
Naples to reject with contumely the advice of the nations which were scandalized by bis ill government. No
priests who now suggest to reigning Princes " energetic"
deeds in service of Holy Church were more profuse of
promise's of impunity and protection in the course they
counselled than were they who directed tlie conduct of
lhe refugee who hns just gone to seek an asylum from
the Queen of Spain.

Even Garibaldi cannot tpko a city by entering it alone m it railway carriage. This is
not war or conquest. It is the operation of
a natural law. it is a sort of political chym-
istry. You may see it at any Mechanics' institute- The lecturer will show you some
compound substance in solution; then he will
pour in some third substance lor which one of
tho constituents ofthe compound substance
has greater preloranco, or chymical affinity,
than it has for its present mate. At once,
and without hesitation or conflict, down goes
the rejected constituents to the bottom ofthe
glass, or flies up in gas, and the two new substances combine and coalesce, happy in their
new form ol matter, and without further care
for tho heavy powder that lies at tho bottom,
or for the light gas which has bubbled ofl'fiom
the surface. This is the sort of natural operation which has taken place in Naples, There
was, it seems, no strong affinity between
Francis II, and even those soldiers and sailors
who wore a part of his general system,
liven they, by a force oi instinct they could
not resist, were drawn away lo that much less
pompous personage whom Mr. Edwin James
Raw in his red shirt, dirty jean trowsers, and
worn-out boots, combing his long thin hair
at tho glass in alittlo bedroom. This was the
fated man against whom the fleets and armies
of the Sovereign of Naples wcre without power-
'The wretched King, at thc approach of this en"
cmy, felt like a man in tt dream whose arm
will not obey his will and who cannot strike
a blow for his life- The moment was come to
(join battle with thc ragged bands of this
half-clad filibuster, and tliere was a well-clad,
well-armed, and well-provisioned, Army and
Navy, which might have made a holyday of
such a work. But that Army and Navy aro
hut a phantasy. Thc Admirals come most rc-
spcctlully to pay that tho seamen would not
fight against Garibaldi. The Generals follow,
and are most loyal in their desires, but thoy
arc sure that if they lead their men into the
field they will all go over to Garibaldi. The
national guard come next, and their loyalty is
such that they shed tears at the Royal distresses, but they cannot fight against Garibaldi. And so Francis tlio second, with all
the semblance of strength around him, stood
without tho proffer ot a" single 'sword and
without power over the action ofa single soldier, lliy police agents, his gaolers, his spies-
his torturers had all slunk away, hiding themselves from tho great indignation. Nothing
was faithful but one holy mountebank, who
cycn to tho last played his infamous juggle
ries with some effect- A "sweating "Virgin''
produced a grotesque Bat clef wailing and
("mentations in Naples among crowds who cured nothing for thc fall of their young Kino. But thc time was
gone by when thc popular titlo could be turned by such
«• trick as this. The King, after lingering in vain, and
looking vainly into every eye for some encouragement
to remain, departed; the "sweating Virgin" was
''iped dry, and Garibaldi came in by the railway train.
This ougiit to be a lesson to Sovereigns who havo not
yet nrrived at tbe crisis of thnt disease which Iibb
proved so fatal to Mouarchs. No King or Emperor in
f Europe can bo at this moment receiving stronger as-
luranccs ol the discipline nnd loyalty of his fleet and

THE SUNBEAM AND THE OCEAN.
A sunbeam, on a summer's day,
Came dancing o'er the ocean spray.
Thc ocean, on its heaving breast,
Received thc welcome, glittering guest.
As they sailed uwny together,
Scorning to think c'f wintry weather,
The foaming wavelets, inUrmering there,
"Were bill old ocean's bridal prayer.
Aud thus with life in early morn—
Ere vows nre broke1 or hearts are worn-
Love's light rrjntlilcns hill and dale,
Dispersing shadows on the gale—
Charming, by its radiant hue,
The t« ilight hour or morning dew,
Life's dark t;nts are sw.-pt along
By its laughing, glorious song ;
All is but a stream of pleasure,
Leading to enduring treasure.
But summer's brightness cannot last.
The wintry chill comes on so fust;
And in the icy snow-drop's fall
The sunbeam" hears its own recall.
Then dim old ocean's surging moan
Bewails that he is left alone,
So, when dull age, with leaden dart,
Has struck tho fickle human heart,
How often one is left alone,
To mourn youth's love-light turned to stone.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Steam on Common Roads.—The Banff Journal says;
—'-The l-'.url of Caithness, accompanied by the Countess and by the Rev. William Ross, ofKintore, started
from Inverness ill his steam-carriage, built under his
own direction, und though, owing to its being market-
day there', the mail was filled with horses and conveyances of all kinds, his Lordship passed through them
all without any inure Inconvenience to the general traffic, or alarm to horses, than if he had boon in his car-
1-ingc-and-four. Su perfectly hud he the whole moving
power under his control that he stopped more quickly
than un ordinary carriage and horses could draw up,
and this be did as often as he saw the least danger of
any horse being frightened, lie reached Ilcuuly, a distance offourteen miles, in an hour an twenty minutes,
notwithstanding the frequent stoppages, and fifteen
minutes lost iu getting water, After leaving Beauly,
on those parts oftho road where some distance forward
can he seen, he attained the speed of eighteen miles an
hour, ami could have kept this up for any distance with
ease ami safely. After reaching Alness his Lordship
turned to the left, nml took the road direct for Bonnr-
bridgo. Here the carriage had a severe test applied to
it, hut he drove it up the hill without difficulty, ami
coming down the very sleep declivity near where the
road joins the road from Tain, the control his Lordship
hnd over il was most satisfactory, and enabled hiin to
descend al any rate he wished, and with perfect ease anil
safo'y. Leaving the Inn at Artlgy, Lord Caithness then
crossed Bonar-bridge, nnd drove on to Clushmore, after
a very Buccosful drive of nearly seventy miles. The

The Highest Speed.—The highest speed ever attained by horse flesh was four miles in eleven minutes,
oral the rale of thirty-three miles an hour. The highest speed of the locomotive, well authenticated, was on
one of the English lines, nt the rate of seveny-eight
miles an hour. Audit is said that » Holyhead boat has
run twenty-six statue miles nn hour, which equals the
best time ever made on the North River.
The Perils of Science.—Some years ago a large
whale wits caught at the Nore, and towed up to London
bridge, the Lord Mayor having claimed it. When it
had lici'it al London-bridge some little time, the Government sent a notice to say it belonged to them. Upon
which tl e Lord Mayor sent answer, "Well, if the whale
belongs to you, I order you to remove it immediately
from London-bridge." The whale was, therefore, towed
down tho stream to the Isle of Dogs, below Greenwich.
The lute Mr. Clift, the energetic nnd talented assistant
of his great master, John Hunter, went down to see it.
He found it on the shore, with its huge mouth propped
open with poles. In his eagerness to examine the internal parts of the.mouth, Mr. Clift stepped inside the
mouth, between the lower jaws, where the tongue issit-
uati'il. This tongue is a huge spongy mass, and being
at that time exceedingly soft, from exposure to air, gave
way like a bog; at the same lime he slipped forward
towards the whale's gullet, nearly as far ns he could go.
Poor Mr. Clift was really in a dangerous predicament;
ho sank lower and lower into the substance of the
tongue- ami gullet, till he nearly disappeared altogether.
He was short in stature, and in a few seconds would
doubtless have lost his life in the horrible oily msss, had
not assistance been quickly afforded him. It was with
great difficulty that a boathook was put in requisition,
and the good liltle man hauled out of the whale's
tongue.—Bncldand's Curiosities of Natural History.
Mb. Cobden's Opinion of American Newspapers.—
The Boston Journal says :—Tn a recent letter to a friend,
Mr Cobden makes the following allusion to American
Newspapers, which he is evidently not in 'ove with :
11 The paragraph you enclosed, giving a conversation
of mine, is one of those rascally acts of eavesdropping
for which American newspuner writers arc so
notorious. There is'a good deal of the paragraph
which agrees with what I have thought; hut whether I
expressed it in private conversation is more than 1
could swear in, ns uo one expects to be made responsible for private gossip. There ought to he the punishment of lhe pillory or the stueks revived fur those who
publish in newspapers the unguarded remarks which
fall from a nun in private conversation, when he frequently speaks merely lu provoke a reply anil keep people from getting to sleep over too serious nn interchange
of views."
Pairing-Time in the House of Commons.—Pairing
timo amongst ihe winged inhabitants of the nir is the
14th of February, when "birds begin to mate;" but
what, snys siime country readers, is pairiug-time in the
House of ('ominous? Well, pairing-time in lhe House
is dinner-time j und pairing means this:—On a great
night il is never considered safe for a member to go
away without pairing-off—-that is to say, one man, for
a question, agrees with another, against it, that neither
mny vote until a certain time ; and thus if a division
happe is beforo they come back neither party is weakened by their absence. This is what is meant by pairing; and, at the dinner-hour the whips on each side
(station themselves nt the door to see that none of their
friends go away without pairs, and for a time, the
scene at the door is a very lively one. The whips stand,
generally, just outside the House, either in thc inner or
outer lobby; and each has in his hand a little book in
which he enters the pairs.    "Can you get me u pair'.'"
• ••Bays .in Uon.OMru.ble..member to..a',.«*li.i|. ".How long
for?" -'Till ten." "Who wants a pair till ten?"  shouts
the whip.    "I do," is  thc   answer   fron  some either
member. "Oh, Brown, here's Jackson  wants  a pair ;
and so you can  pair with him." Whereupon Jackson
and Brown, who. perhaps,   have   never known   each
other before,   politely  lift  their  hats  and  retire.    "I
want a pair till twelve," cries  another.    "Till twelve?
Make it 11, 30, and I can pair you with Malton." "Well
say 11.30, " "Very  well.   Fit/.hugh, you are paired
till 11.30 , with   Malton,  anrl  may  go."    And so the
work goes on for some half hour ;   nnd ns, perhaps, in
the course of this time a hundred members nre paired, it
may bc easily Imagined that, what with the calling out
of the whip and the  scudding about of the members,
there is no small  bustle and confusion.    These agreements to pair are kept very honourably ; and it is very
rare that a memoer breaks  his  pair hy accident and
never is this done by design.    Sometimes we have some
very close running.    One niget, lust, Session, a division
was called just before eleven.   The Sergcant-at-Arms
was at thc door ready to shut  it, when ■<■ member who
was paired till eleven arrived.    Thc  hand  was  on tbe
stroke ; ii just glided over it; he rushed in,  and the
door was shut, nnd he saved  tho  division.    A minute
his pair came up ; but the door was locked,  and he
l«3t the division.
Bright as a Speaker.—lf the test of the speaker be
the power to arrest the attention of his hearers and hold
it, Bright is tlie best speaker in the House excepting it
may be Gladstone ; for no man with this one exception,
can rivet their minds for an hour ns he can. And them,
in judging of Bright's power, we must consider the disadvantage's under which he labors. He has no official
prestige; h i has no great party behind him, like Israeli. Four-fifths of thc House dislike both the man and
his principles. And when he speaks all the sentiments
Which he niters are in direct opposition to the opinions
and prejudices ofthe bulk ot his hearers. And yet he-
is listened to; ind not only listened to, but there-is
rapt attention while be is speaking, nnd the most rabid
opponent ofthe man and his principles is anxious to
catch every word that he says. It was so when the fortification question was before the llouse. On the division there were 268 against him and only- a poor 39
in his i.-ivor, and yet how attentively the members listened to him, and not only listened to him but seemed
to be moved by bis speech ; for wcre they not absorbed
in their attention, anil did they not cheer many of Ins sen-
dices and laugh a jolly laugh at his humor? Blight's
speech on this occasion was one of his most remarkable
efforts. Of course we say nothing here of the sentiments ofthe speaker. Whether he was right or wrong
we leave others to decide ; but thnt it was a speech ot
great ability nnd most effectually delivered his sternest
opponents confessed.
The English Battalion in the National Army of
Sicily.—At the battle of Mclazzo a body of troops
culled the English battalion, commanded by Lieutenant-
Colonel Dunne, did Garibaldi good service. When the
Neapolitan troops were beaten oll'the field of buttle into
tlie town they made for tho upper portion, firing down
the streets as they retreated, The English battalion
followed them close to the fortress, and get one of the
most advanced posts. Throwing up a barricade, across
'.he top ofthe narrow thoroughfare which leads immedi-
utely to the citadel, they maintained a hot lire ngainsl
the Neapolitan-, until a stop wns put to hostilities by
the truce. The 7V»te* corespondent, treating of one ofthe
most critical periods ofthe battle ofMelazzo, writes us
follows :—"Although the whole movement wns under
the orders more especially of Medici, Garibaldi was, of
course, the soul ofthe light, finding himself invariably
at the point most exposed, and exposing himself, us is
his wont lo do. He was with the centre, which was
making its way slowly over and through all the obstacles, when the news arrived that the lelt, unable to resist the superior forces of the enemy, wns giving way,
nnd thus exposing the whole line to be turned on that
side. Taking the only reserve remaining, a battalion
composee1 of North Italians and Pnlermitans (the so-
called English Battalion), under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Dunne nnd several other English officers,
he went to the left to stem tlie advance of the Neapolitans. His presence and the exertions of the officers of
the battalion succeeded in steadying those young troops
who not only resisted further attack", but pushed forward towards the guns with which the enemy was
sweeping the road. One advance bolder than
thc rest brought them to the guns ; an English sailor,
lately enlisted at Patti, was the first to cross thc wall
behind which one ofthe guns was posted, and the next
moment the gun wns carried off in triumph. The Eng-
glish officers of the regiment are Lieutenant-Colonel
Dunne, Major Percy Windham. Captain Edward Styles,
Lieutenant Robert Walker (lute 16th Regiment), and
Lieutenant Alfred Stvles.

THE BLESSING  OF  HEALTH
BY
HOLLOWAY'S     PILLS.
Why arc Diseases so Fatal in Tropical Climates ?
Merely because we prescribe for their effect, instead
of their cause, and try to relieve symptoms instead of
triking at their root. Thc action of these Pills is precisely the reverse. They expel from the secretive organs and the circulation the morbid mutter 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 nction of the heart and deranging the whole imi-
mul economy ; these fine Pills will restore tlie nervous
systom however deranged, and bring back health and
spirits when all other medicine lias failed.
Bilious und Liver Complaints.
Frequently lead to the worst phases of human suffering, yet how many in the East and West Indies, and
most of our Foreign Possessions, are thus afflicted, unknowing thc menus of cure placed within their grasp ;
such should take a few boxes of these Pills according
to the directions given in the books, and their ailments
will quickly leave them.
Dropsical Swellings and Turn of Life.
This is ft most disastrous period in woman's history,
it destroys thousands, the whole of the gross humors
collect together, 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 Ilollowuy'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 arc equally efficacious in nil female complaints, nnd obstructions at thu dawn of
womanhood.
Stomach and Liver Complaints.
These arc complaints of the million, particularly ot
those in warm latitudes; few escape tlicm ; end, if
neglected, ihey lead to innumerable dangerous maladies.
But why neglect them when Ilollowuy's Pills will eradicate them ns certainly as water extinguishes fire?
They relieve the bowels, purify the lluids, nml invigorate the system and the constitution nt the saine time.
They are admitted by virtue of special decrees into the
dominions of despotism, and thus have become a groat
household remedy.
Dysentery and Bowel Complaints.
These famous Pills should be taken once or twice a
week by nil classes in this part of the world, by which
means, none need fear tbe attacks of these direful
scourges.
A   Word to Females.
Tbe local debility und irregularities which art- the
special annoyance of the weaker sex, nnd which, when
neglected, always shortens life, are relieved for tbe
time being and prevented for the time to come, by a
course of this mild but thorough alterative.
Holloway's Pills are the best remedy known in the world
for the following diseases:—
Bilious Complaints   Erysipelas Stone and Gravel
Blotches  on  the      Female  Irreg- Liver Complaints
skin ularitics Lumbago
Bowel Complaints    Fevers of all Piles
Colics kinds Retention of Urine

Messrs. A. B. fe D. Bands, Now York: Oentlemen.—In tt,#
spring of 18M), while on our way from Indiana to this place, our
eldest boy was seized with a swelling and severe pains In tlio
legs, which day by day grow worse, until his legs contracted,
and became so painful that bo could not walk, and we hnd ta
cany him about like at, infant. We reached Albany on the fid
of October, completely worn out by fallgue. 'ly this llinc ho
was reduced to a perfect Bkelcton. Hero wo were enntik.il to
consult a physician (Dr. lllll), who honestly confessed he could
not cure hltti, although lie could givo him mcUcliio that would
relieve the pain In Ibis exigency something must bo done, or
dentil wns Inovttnblo. Iloing recommended to try your Sarsn-
parllla, I procured a bottle, Aflcr taking somo, he appeared
worse; but persevering with It, I obtained a second bottle,
which seemed to grapple wilh the disease, nnd mused u marker*
Improvement! the swelling and pain In the legs were reduced,
hts appetite I,,,proved, and bis color began to return. Thus en*
coitriigeil, I purohased a third bottle; while laking It, the swellings li, bis legs broke, and some pieces ot bone one-eighth of

Douglas Assizes.—There was but one case for trial

The Hope.—This new steamer arrived in New Westminster on Monday last, She returned from her first
trip up the river to Vale, which was succcsful, on
Thursday night.
Harhison Rapids.—The detachment of Royal Engineers, who have been at work on the •• rapids" of Harrison river, are obliged to lent p thai place on account
of tbe unusually high stage of witter and inclemency
of tlie weittbe-r.    Tbey will return again in the spring.
Municipal Dinner.—Thc members of the .Municipal
council, on tbe occasion ot their second quarterly meeting, gave n dinner at the Colonial Hotel on Thursday
evening last. The usual loyal and other toasts were
given and drank with much enthusiasm. It was quite
evident that whatever differences of opinion may have
existed in the council lately, on this occasion the harmony and unanimity of feeling were peculiarly striking,
— .vhethcr owing to tbe effect of thc eatables and drinkables provided by Messrs. Grellcy or not we cannot
say.
TnE Convict Becker.—This unfortunate wretch who
is at present undergoing a sentence of penal servitude
for life in Victoria, for stealing in company with  the

The remaining live buoys on tin North side of the
channel, tuny be passed from half a cable to a cubit's
length, keeping '.hem on the port band iu entering. Alter passing the inner buoy, a strait course may bc
steered fer Carry Point.
The most bitter enemy of tbe New Westminster Municipal Council cannot accuse it of want of energy or
industry. Three months have just elapsed since that
body came into existence, and during the time mentioned, tbe amount of work done in clearing tlie town
site and grading streets is perfectly astonishing, especially when it is considered bow limited were tbe funds
at the council's disposal, and how gigantic the difficulties with  which it bad to contend.    It would,  we are
the Municipal Council in providing, as far as
their means extended, work for the returned
miner during tho winter months—but there is
al.-o another fact which deserves especial notice, and that is thc comparatively speaking
small number of miners who have yet comedown the river to avoid a winter's residence
in the d'1'1 regions jf the interior. The loss
to the miner and to the colony resulting Irom
the formers emigration at this reason of the
year is almost incalculable—for so impulsive
has this class become, that thc probabilities
are that not one out ol every three leaving the
■Colony in the winter season will return in the
•ensuing spring, however strong their inclination and intention would lead them to do so
previous to their departure. The country is
thus deprived of a huge poiti m of the very-

mineral resources, from tho practical knowledge they have olcned of tlie colony during
their operations in the interior His, there-

might Governor Douglas have drawn back with an excusable timidity at the thought of granting such powers
as the council possesses, to a community at the time so
numerically small, io new to the country and each
other, and so diversified in opinions. But happily His
Excellency yielded to thc wishes of the majority and the
result ha. proved that his confidence in the judgment
und trustworthiness of the inhabitants of New Westminster has not been misplaced. The actions of the
cuuncil are a sufficient commentary on our fitness for
representative government, and we must confess stand
out in favorable contrast with the proceedings of the
Legislative Assembly of the neighboring colony. But
the council has not confined irself to the important duties of clearing and grading the streets: many reports
and resolutions have been brought forward on other
matters that will prove of the utmost consequence to
the interest of the colony at ,argc. We will refer our
readers to one valuable document, which we print elsewhere, under the head of the " Report of tbe Harbor
committee of the Port of New Westminster.'1 Nothing
we believe will conduce more to the Shipping interests
of 3ritish Columbia than a wide-spread publicity
given to this report. The utter ignorance which prevails almost everywhere outside the colony on the capability of the Port of New Westminster, and its outlet to
the sea, has been the principal cause of our scanty arrivals of seo going vessels; but with tbe cl.ibor t- and detailed information which the report in question affords,
wc have every reasonable hope ol seeing ere long the
trade and commerce of New Westminster considerably
augmented. We might go on to enumerate almost ad
infinitum the immense benefits which have flowed from
or nre likely to follow the efforts of our Municipal councillors, and show to the unapprcciative and unthinking
poriion ofthe inhabitants (If there be such amongst us)
how much time and labor, to the sacrifice of persona!
interest i3 expended by ibis small body of local legislators; but we have sufficient confidence in the discrimination of the population, and in that good sense which
notorious Sprague a quantity of gold dust from Mr.
Romano's store, at Fort Vale, bus sent us a long communication for publication, attempting to prove ilis innocence of the charge for which he was convicted. If
there bc any foundation for the statement he makes.
(which we will condense in a few words) some parties
in Yale who are conversant, with the details of the rase
should, we think, give thc subject a little attention.
Becker says that, on the night of the robbery be was
sleeping in Romano's store, and was aroused next
morning by Mi. Romano saying his house had been
robbed. Becker's cap was found outside the building
which confirmed the suspicion that bad been immediately attached to him, but the convict says he never
knew bow his cap got there, except through ihe machinations of Sprague, who committed the robbery and
wished to fasten it upon him (Beckerl. No money was
found on his person, but upwards of Si,800 was discovered with Sprague. Sprague was arrested and promised to clear Becker ofthe charge by pleading "guilty''
but did not do so. Sprnguc, however, is ready to take
an oath thut Becker had no hand in the robbery. A
large portion of ihe money was hidden by Sprague and
was afterwards found, clearly proving, as flecker argues,
that he (Sprague) alone was concerned in thc robbery
inasmuch as no money could be found with him (Becker.) Such is the substance of Becker's communication
—the whole affair may be a fabrication, still we think
it would be rather heartless to refuse giving the man,
though he be a convict an 0' p irtunity to put forth his
statement to the public, more especially as bis sentence
—penal servitude for life—is most extraordinarily severe, and certainly unprecedented in the present age for
such a crime as the one of which thc prisoner was convicted.

REPORT OF THE HARBOR COMMITTEE OF THE
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL OF TIIK PORT OF NEW
WESTMINSTER.
little loss of time is now experienced through
this absence of so indispensable a requisite in
.    mining operations ; and we have no doubt in
- the courso of a little time when British capital
finds its way to this country, as it has already
done to such extent to thu Australian mines,
thut scientific  appliances  will be brought to
bear on the operations ofthe miner, that will
not only revolutionise tho whole system of
mining in tho colony, but enable him to work
during the twelve months of tlie year, almost
without intermission.   Wo look forward with
confidence to the effect which this prosperous
year vviiJ produce on the minds of capitalists.
It is certainly unequalled in the annals of
gold countries.   Beforo tbe present yea'-shall
have expired a sum  but little 6hort of one
million   pounds   sterling shall   hav«   been
obtained   from   the   mines of   British   (Jo-

working months.   It is  true  this  is  but  a
rcngh estimate, but we have more abundant
out of Municipal regulations We make these remarks
because wo are aware that in a little time nuisances
and obstructions in the public streets, and other measures which will conflict with individual interests or
caprice, will be dealt with in a proper manner by the
council.
The resignation of Mr. Homer has caused a vacancy
in the representation of No. 2 ward, which will bc filled
up on Tuesday December 11. We regret that any unfortunate difficulty should have ariseu in the council to
cause tbe resignation of so valuable a member, and one
who has devoted himself so diligently to the interests
of tbe eoramuuity he represented, and we sincerely
hope the candidate who will obtain the majority of
votes nt the coming election will bc in no way unworthy of his predecessor,

the subject will admit of, leaving much important mat
It must be remembered that the ebb tide sets to the

By attention to these directions, a vessel drawing
from 15 to 1C feet water, may cuter the Fraser with
safety at half tide.
The buoys assume a vertical position, varying from
an angle of 35° to 80°, according to tho stale of the
tide and wind, and can be plainly seen from a vessel's
deck at a distance of three miles in clear weather,

for the Sand Heads eleven miles distant, some slight
allowance being of course made for the tide, which
runs from one to two knots in the strait, and more as

Vessels from the southward,  passing Robert's Point, j
must avoid the Robert's bink,  which is very steep  to:

CEO. HBNRY RICHARDS,
Captain II. M. Surveying Ship Plumper.
September 24th, 1S59.
Iu June, 1 SOO, a Board of Pi.ots was established at
Victoria, Vancouver Island, " for the surveyed harbors
nnd waters of British Columbia.'' ll appeared, upon
the examination of candidates for Pilots, that sailing
vessels, or steamers drawing 20 feet of witter could
enter the Fraser river with safely at neap titles.
Inward bound vessels have only to signalise olf Victoria for a pilot, and without thc necessity of going into
that port, are brought in safety to New Westminster, f
Tbe charge for pilotage front Victoria to within the
Sand Heads, or the bar ofthe Fraser. is So, or ti sterling per foot; from thence to New Westminster S2.M,,
or 10s per foot, (optional)
Two tides will generally bring sailing vessels from
the " Heads" to the port during the months (rom August to April, thc river being then low ; and three tides
from the months of May to July, lite river being tb.n
high—distance about 18 miles—one or two tides will
take them down clear ofthe '• Heads.'1
The anchorage in the river is good all tho way, and
the winds blowup from the mouth westwardly nearly
10 months ofthe year.
Tho whttrt accommodation at New Westminster is
good, and vessels ofthe largest dimensions may lie and
discharge in security without being affected by any
winds,— the Harbor being perfectly land-locked.
Connected with the pilotage, it may be proper to
state, that, from Cape Flattery, at the entrance of the
Strait of Fuca, to New Dungeness—lying South
Eastward from Victorio, on thc South or United
States side—there arc two Light Houses, one at each of
the points named, and one on the Race Rocks, at the
approach to Victoria nnd Esquimau, on tlie British, or
North side of the Strait.
The run between New Westminster nnd Victoria has
been made by steamers witbin six hours.—distance 75
miles.
Thc approaches to thc entrance of the Frascr river,

Vour appreciation of the labors of tbe surveying sty _

best thanks.
I may be permitted at the same time to observe tint I
however highly you may estimate our services, it il til
to natural causes alone that the Fraser owes its inmiu-1
ity from dangers and difficulties almost always incid.r.11
to the navigation of Bar Harbors. Effectually .heltertdi
and protected as it is, in common with nearly300 oik.J
of the coast of Britisli Columbia, by the natural hrtik-
water, which the sister colony affords, your noble river I
is accessible at most time., to vessels of from 18 to .Ofctt J
draught and 1000 tons, subject only to occasional it' |
considerable delay at certain stages of tide.
It is free from risk of life and property in a higtel
degree than nny river I am acquainted with on till
western side of this continent, and when a light-vestd!
is established at tlie Siiud Heads, marked by pcrmaniill
buoys, the seaman may guide bis vessel through nt til
times with ease and safety. I beg to assure you llintthl
prosperity of your port will always be a subject of d«|j
interest to me, and while I continue to conduct the nai-f

Capt. Kino.—We see by the Colonitt that this gentleman is still confined in Victoria jail—that tbe Governor refused to pardon him,—and that Judge Cameron,
on the application for a writ of habeas corpus, after a
lenrned argument by Mr. McCreight. declined to  grant
the application,   and confirmed   tbo   decision   of  Mr.
Pemberton,    We   think   the   course   taken   by   tbe

to enter upon it.
From what is already known and by daily experience
proved, your Committee are convince.1 that were a
knowledge of the capabilities and advantages of the
port of New We-tminstermore generally understood over
the Maritime Countries of tbe Pacific, of the Eastern
const of America, and ot Europe, it would tend greatly
to induce foreign shipping, trade, and immigration, direct to the colony; keeping this fact tn view, your
commitce will endeavor to shape their report.
Previous to 18,"8, when the gold disoveiy in British
Columbia became generally known, thc Fraser river
was visited by the craft and steamers of the Hudson's
Buy Company only. In that year numerous boats nnd
sailing vessels from the adjacent countries entered the
river, with thousands of persons for thc purposes of
mining and trade.
Iu September 1859, Captain Richards R. N. in H. M.
S. S. Plumper, by the request of His Excclloncy
Governor Douglas, re-surveyed tbe approaches to thc
Fraser rivr, and rebuoyed the entrance at the Sand
Heads. On this occasion thc Plumper ascended thc
river as far as Langley, 15 miles above New Westminster, nnd upwards of 30 from thc Heads. *
This survey was very favorable to the navigation of
the river. Captain Richard's report is appended hereto,
and his directions will be found to be a useful acquisition to nautical men,

THE   NEW   WESTMINSTER   TIMES
NEW WESTMINSTER GRAND JURY REPORT.
The Grand Jury summoned for the present Assizes
held at New Westminster this day, in accordance with
the duties that devolve upon them, beg to present your
Honor with the following Report, which they request
may be laid before His Excellency Governor Douglas :—
That wc consider that it is the'duty of all good Governments to provide education for the young and as we
have many children in tbis city wanting education, we
consider that the Government ought to lutike a grant of
money font public school and that n teacher to the same
he appointed for tbe  benefit of such children.
We have also to repeat that we have visited the Prison, and that it is now ready to receive the prisoners belonging to the colony, who are kept at our expense in
the neighboring colony of Vancouver Island, and
suggest that they be sent up without delay, as their
labor will be useful in the formation of our roads and
streets,
And ns we are aware that there are plenty of funds
in the bands ofthe Treasurer of this colony, we request
thnt a Post-office be erected, as the public arc put to
great inconvenience by its being kept in tbe Prison,
ivhich, from its situation, is at times nearly inaccessible
to the people.
And as the outside buoys lately put down marking
out tlie entrance to the Port are washed away, wc consider no delay ought to occur iu placing at the Sund
Heads a Light-ship,—such being considered by nil practical men the only permanent way of making out the
channel,—and thai buoys be placed in other parts
where necessary. Thut lhe interest of the underwriters,
and protection to the commerce of British Columbia demand immediate action of Government on this hcud.
That we have in tbo immediate vicinity of this city
large tracts of land suitable for agricultural pursuits,
from which the colony will derive a large revenue when
made available fur settlement, and having several farmers already settled on lhe line of roads who are unt«
l.lc to bring their produce into market, we recommend
vI,tit a waggon road be iinule from the Camp to Burnerd
Inlet by the north line, nnd thut another be constructed
from the end of Douglas sireet to English Bay, Also
that trails be made to terminate opposite this city to
open up the land nn tbe other side ofthe river, one to
Mud Bay, and another to join tbe road to Langley.
Wc consider that the Municipal Council of this city
have expended the money placed at their disposal
judiciously, and we recommend that unother sum be
granted them by Government.
That some disposition be immediately made of the
Water frontage of the city so that the present owners
of Wharves and improvements be protected, and other
parties enabled to go ou with tbe construction of
wharves nnd other improvements, which at present
they are unable to do on account of the delay in the
issue of the necessary Proclamation, which also prevents the frontage from being made available.
That the system of collecting duties In detail, part
here nnd part up the country, tve condemn as a most
serious injury to commerce, nnd suggest that all duties
on goods entering Fraser river be collected at the Port
of entrance, and that the Mule tax and tonnage due3 be
abolished.
We request that his Excellency's attention may bc
called to the fact ofthe Attorney General being absent
the two previous assizes, and that there was a prisoner
for him to prosecute last assizes. We protest against
his receiving a large salary from liritish Columbia when
residing in another colony aud not attending to tlie
duties of Iris oflice.

And 15 other Grand Jurors.

Chief Justice of Britisli Columbia.

COLONIAL FEDERATION.
"We-copy tbo following extract from an admirable article in the Canadian Newt on the  subject of thc federation of all the North American colonics.
This union of the provinces for federative purposes is
viewed with satisfaction by the Government at home,
for it would relieve ihem of some difficult nnd many
unpleasant and unthankful duties. Thc colonists regard such a step as one which would be attended with
advantage to themselves, and the American people,who
have paid nny attention to the question, have long since
regarded it inevitable. " Look," said ono of the United States journals two years since, " upon this infant
empire—a young giant in swaddling clothes, with its
right hand extending across tlie Atlantic to (day with
its mother's apron strings—the mother it is destined
soon to outgrow, und its left resting over the Rocky
Mountains, writing its name in the golden sand by the
broad ocean, anil its bosom full of the power of new
and abundant life; and you see the cousin that comes
to divide with us a continent." Some of the newspapers in the State of Maine have even gone so far us
to sny Hint their State would willingly join such a-
great and powerful confederacy.
A Brilish Columbia, which should combine in one
Government • pper and Lower Canada, the Red River
district, Vancouver Island, and lhe newly-formed colony in the Pacific, the vast territory still monopolised
by thc Hudson Bay Company, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward's Island, and Newfoundland,
would, in time, become as powerful as any other great
confederation, lf such a combinitiou wcre to take
place, its Government would mnkc its voice heard upon
many mutters of permanent importance. Tlie rights of
the British fisheries would not, be signed away by a
distant Government, ignorant or careless of their extent and value, for the mere purpose of winning the
favor of a ruler, who hail made the concession a portion
of the price of bis alliance. The Federal Government
of a British North America would discuss, with the
adjoining States, conventions of reciprocity, which
should be something more than treaties in mere name ;
and when the selfish American legislators should urge
upon the Government at Washington repudiation of
solemn engagements, because it would bc proliitiiblc to
break through them, the most obsequious of Secretaries of State would bc compelled to remind the orators
that it would not be prudent to trille with t'.le powerful
Government on the other side of the St. Lawrence,
lest in their turn they might withhold advantages
which thc citizens of the United States would perhaps
leurii to value when too lute to enjoy. A Government
which represented thc joint opinions of tlie North
American provinces would protest to some purpose
when they found that the Imperial Government had so
far disregarded the interests of the colony confided to
its care, as to subsidise a great enterprise in opposition
to a colonial interest, flagrant breaches of faith as
those made iu lbe matter of tbo intercolonial railway,
und just recently in the case of thc Cunard and Galway
Packet contracts, would neither be nttemptcd at home
nor permitted by a strong Federal Government. Noad-
niinistrntion, whether Conservative or Liberal, would,
in order to obtain a few votes in llie llouse of Commons,
venture to bargain away the confidence ofa British colony, or support, by immense grants ofthe public funds,
an American port in opponiiion to a Canadian one.
j The Parliamentary Whipper-in would think twice before
he would venture to make promises to vaccillating
Irish members, the fulfilment of which would jeopardise the noblest possession ofthe Brilish Empire. Colonial interests will be more attended to in Dowtiing-
strect, and much better protected in thc colonics than
w now thc case when all thc provinces shall merge their
! minor differences into one grand North American confederacy.
There yet remains one point  of view in which the
proposed upion will not fail to be of advantage.   The
j separate colonies would be a source of weakness in the
I «'ent of war; combined, they would be powerful fgrthe
I purposes ot their own defence.   A New York journal,
I in commenting upon tbe probable result of thc Prince's
?isit, and referring to tbe coming federation of tbe
provinces, sees in it a wise and prudent defensive policy
on the pnrt   of the  Imperial Government,  as against
the " uncontrollable impulses" of the adjoinipg states.
According to (he New  York Pott, ' the  somewhat reck.
less foreign policy of the last two administrations,"
have made the United States "a dangerous neighbor, "
against which British statesmen have thought it desirable to consolodate with military power. ' With a well-
organised Government " says our contemporary," extending along our frontier the entire length of the continent, for a land aproach, and a seacoast accessible to
an invading fleet every fifty miles for more than three
thousand, the United States will find herself under
stronger bonds than she has ever yet been for her good
behaviour to England."

THE BLESSING  OF  HEALTH
BV
HOLLOWAY'S     PILLS.
Why arc Diseases so Fatal in Tropical Climates t
Merely because we prescribe for their effect, instead
of their cause, aud try to relieve symptoms instead of
triking nt their root. The action of these Pills is precisely the reverse. They expel from the secretive organs and tlie circulation tbe 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 Countriet.
Frequently arises from nervous disorders affecting
the action of the 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 suffering, yet how many in thc East and West Indies, and
most of our Foreign Possessions, are thus afflicted, unknowing the means of cure plated 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 Turn of Life.
This is a most disastrous period in woman's history,
it destroys thousands, the whole of the gross humors
collect together, nnd like a tide sweep away health end
life itself, if not timely and powerfully checked. The
most certain remedy for all these dangtrous symptoms
is Holloway's Pills. Armed with this great antidote,
the fiery ordeal is passed through, nnd the sufferer is
once more restored to the possession of unimpaired
lienlth. These Pills nre equally efficacious in all te-
male complaints, and obstructions at the dawn of
womanhood.
Stomach and Liver Complaints.
These arc complaints of thc million, particularly of
those in warm latitudes ; few escape tlicm ; and, if
neglected, Ihey lend to innumerable dangerous maladies.
But why neglect them when Ilollowuy's Pills wiil eradicate them ns certainly as water extinguishes fire?
They relieve the bowels, purify the fluids, and invigorate the system and the constitution at the snine time.
They 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 all classes in this part of tbe world, hy which
means, nono need fear the attacks of these direful
scourges.
^4  Word to Females.
The local debility and irrcgula.iti"S which are the
special annoyance of the weaker sex, and which, when
neglected, always shortens life, are relieved for tbo
time being and prevented for the time to come, by a
course of this mild but thorough alterative.
Holloway's Pills are the best remedy known m the world
for the following diseases:-
Erysipelas        ! Stono and Gravel
Female  Irreg-   Liver Complaints
ulitritics Lumbago
Fevers of all     Piles

MISCELLANEOUS.
BtrrALo Hunting.—The quantity of buffalo ment
annually slaughtered nrd cured throughout the country for pemican is something surprising. The muster-
roll ofthe main-river party swells to the dimensions
of an army. Here it is—not simply derived
from approximation, but correctly ascertained by a
close and careful count:—500 men. 600 women, CSO
children ; 730 horses. 300 oxen, and 950 carts. The
buffalo first appeared in sight in lhe neighborhood
Bad Hill, about sixty miles from thc boundary line,
and in a run in which 220 hunters were engaged,
1300 buffilo were Shot. Tiie camp then moved south-
Trarda by thc Sandy TIi 11 =, until they came within five-
miles ofthe Little Souris r.iver, and ut this place they
killed over 1000. Here they slaved awhile to dry their
meat and manufacture pemican, nnd ivhilst thus occupied a herd of about 250 came by at a trot, running
their last rare; tbey were all brought down nnd converted into pemic.-.n. After that, and up to tho latest
time intellitrence came fr im the camp, three small herds
—one of 80. another of 3'j. und a third cf 15—were destroyed on the plain5. Buffalo growing scarce, the expedition moved Inch tn Devil's Like, where the more
serious business of b'i'.T.!o shooting was relieved hy a
bear, beaver, and deer hunt. This sport over—and
good sport it was, several grizzly bears and u variety
of lesser animals were mad. to bite the durt.—Red River
Nor' Wetter.
A Long-Lost Tr.!....*:?.*7..—An interesting experiment
ii in prozress for recover;.*.:: trea-ure from the thirty-
six gun frigate. Luline. which foundered off Tercbel-
ling, on the Dutch coast, sixty-one years ago. She hnd
been captured by the British from lhe French, and had
been selected to convey an amount of specie, supposed,
according to some statements, to be nearly £2,000,000.
partly for the pay of Britisli and Russian troops, and
partly for the relief of Hamburg merchants. During
the past thirty or forty years, various attempts
have been made to recover the treasure, and about
£50.000, had at consifV-rahle expense, been obtained ;
but the wreck ultimately sanded up, and her position
was not rediscovered until some fishermen nee-idently
found a portion entangled in floating ice. Within the
last few weeks tlie panic- interested, in conjunction
with a committee ofLoyd's on behalf of thc representative* of the underwriters who sustained loss, have resolved to employ Heinle's diving apparatus, and the
result is that an examination has been effected, which
shows thu the wreck i? at present unusually free from
gand, although still buried to a crreit extent, and that
hopes are held out of the possibility of a considerable
portion of the treasure being recovered this season. It
Is stated, however, that prompt action wiil be necessary,
as, from the influence of peculiar .vinds, the sand ma"y
at any time again accumulate,—London Times.
A Might? River.—The Amazon, the largest river in
the world, has an area of drainage nearly three times
as large as that nf n'l the rivers of Europe that empty
themselves into the Atlantic. This plain is entirely
covered with a dense primeval forest, through which
the only paths are those made by the river and innumerable tributaries. Thc forest is literally impenetra-"
ble. Humboldt remark, that two mission stations
might he only a few miles apart, and yet the residents
would require a dayand a half to visit each other, along
the windings of srnill streams. Even the wild animals
get so involved ii, the dense masses uf wood (even the
jaguar) that they live for a lnng time in the trees, a terror to the monkey whoso dom iins they have invaded.
The trees measure from eight to ten feet in diameter,
and the intervals nre occupied by shrub like plants,
which  here,  in tho~e tropical regions become   nborc.
The Temporalities or the Established Chcrch or
England and Ireland.—There are in the patronage of
the Sovereign, that is, virtually, of Her Majesty*! ministers,  about 200 dignities,   ("suet ns archbishoprics,
bishoprics, deaneries, tc.,) nnd 290 livings,  ofthe annual value of Si, 7.0,000.    The Prince of Wales has
the disposal of 29 livings, worth $35,520.    The Lord
Chancellor disposes of 783 dignities nnd livings, of the
value of $888,000.   The Duchy of Lancaster has 48
livings, value $C6,600.    The archbishops nnd  bishops,
the Deans and chapters, have thc dispo.-al of 4,000 dignities and livings,  of the value of $4,440,000.     There
are in the gift ofthe University of Oxford 482  livings,
value ?Gei3.f'00.     Cambridge  has  307 livings,   Value,
$444,000.    The  livings  under  private patronage  are
?,0C3, with an income of nearly $8,880,000.    This gives
for the Church in England 13.215 dignities and livings,
with a gross income of nearly $17,700,000,    The  Iri.h
branch of tbe Church has two  archbishops,  and thirteen bishops, with 300 dignities and 2.000 livings, possessing nn annual income of nearly  $4,440,000.    The
total number, therefore, of dignities and livings in the;
United Church ol England nnd Ireland is 15-iiOO. realizing an aggregate income oi'morc than$17,000,000, or
nearly  £5,000,000  sterling.     These  calculations  are .
based on the published values of the various  dignities .
nnd livings, thc actual value being invert- many  cases
much greater.
Chinese PECULuniTiES.—The Chinese have succeeded
in raising the Cormorant, sunlt in the Peiho. They
built a boat into which they transferred the Cormorant's
engines. But alas! they would not work, amino one
could set them going. So Sang-bo-lin-sin sent down
four watchmakers from Pekin. " You arc accustomed
to machines," said he: "set that barbarian machine
going, or I will "ut off your beads,1' The unhappy
watchmakers succeeded in lighting the fires nnd inducing thc smoke to ascend through the funnel. This
seems to have contented their taskmaster, for, thou,;!)
thc engines nre not working, we have no account of
the watchmakers' decapitation.
The Emperor is in a state of drunken, helpless imbecility.    Among the many curious institutions of China,
that of the Ccnsorate is entitled to a high place.     The
Censors arc intru-tcd with "the care of manners end
customs, the investigation of all public offices within
nnd without ihe capital, the discrimination between thc
good and bad performance of their business,  and  between depravity and uprightness of tbe officers employed
in them.'1    These officers execrcise the right of reproof
with extraordinary candor and plainness, though it is to
he feared that their remonstrances are frequently  unavailing.    Some months ago the Censor protested against
the conduct ot thc Emperor, against his drunkenness !
and dissipation, his attachment to actors,  and  love  of ■
low society.   This reproof to Majesty was published in!
the Pekin Gazette, and circulated throughout the length !
and breadth of the Empire.    Shortly before  his degradation,   Ho-kwei-tsing,  late Governor-Generol of this i
0f j province, in conjunction with Wnng-yu-ling, addressed
' a  long memorial to tlie Emperor.    They described  in
pi cous terms the state ofthe district, with the regular I
troops disbanded, thc rebels victorious on  every side, j
and Shanghai only preserved from assault by the  (ire- '
sencc of the allied forces.— Cor. London Tines.

WHEREAS it is of great importance to proceed with

and could not attend to hear him.    Thc clergyman then
put the question to the crowd, whether they would have
tbe  hanging  or the sermon first.    They decided by a
unanim . us vote to have the hanging first and proceeded
•with the trial. The evidence was conclusive thathchnd
stolen the horses, and he was sentenced to be bung.
The prisoner  begged for mercy;   offered two thou-
Bahd dollars, fifty head of cuttle, nnd twenty horses to
be released, promising to leave the country and never
return; his offer was refused.   When he found there
wa» no hope,. he begged them to hang him as soon  as
possible.    A platform was constructed.    He declined
making any remarks, and in the presence ofthe citizens
' cf the town hervras launched into eternity.   His neck
tras broken, and after hanging half an hour his body
Was Cut down—they rolled about him his ponchois and
buried him.   The rrowd then proceeded to the church,
and thus ended tho first and lust hanging in Colorado.
Over the grave of tlie unfortunate man, is a board with
this inscription :—"Axtomio Cuiholo.—Hung by the
citizen, of Colorado, July 25th, 1800, for horse stealing. "
; varying irom sixpence to one shilling on lhc carriage ot
i each pound weight avourdupois.
And whereas petitions have been presented from Fort
Hope and Fort Yule praying that such a Toll as hereafter mentioned may bc established nnd levied, and
that the money so raised mny be applied in forming,
maintaining and improving the means of land communication from the points at which such Tolls may respectively bc levied:
Now, therefore, I, JAMES DOUGLAS, do hereby
declare, proclaim and enact as follows :
I. There Eball be levied and paid as, and from tho
Tenth day of November next, unto and to the use of
