THE AVAR IN CHINA.
We fear that wc cannot accuse tlie Alongols who re-
sistcd our attack on the forts of the Peiho of treachery,
however plain it is that the Court of 1'ekiu has deliberately and perfidiously violated a solemn treaty.
There are discrepancies in all the accounts we have received of the precise transactions which took place
between the arrival of the British flotilla off the mouth
of the river and their attack on the forts, but the witnesses ure unanimous in declaring the Chinese to
have stated that they would resist any attempt to force
the booms and the passage of the river, and that our
officers prepared the fleet tor the bombardment of the
defences und the capture of the forts. So far we knew
what we were about; at least, we were warned that
resistance would be made, but it would appear that we
very much underrated the means, extent, and nature of
the opposition.
The Mongols were victors in a hard fight, in which
our seamen and soldiers, if not our ships, were handled
with rash confidence und nn entire disregard of military
principles. The display of high courage docs not excuse the conduct of the affair, for the courage was
displayed to no purpose, and it only aggravated our
unprecedented losses. The soldier is consoled on the
field if he hears the shouts of victory, but it is hard to
be shot down or smothered in a morass of mud, and
lo know your life has not averted defeat and disaster,
nnd that it has been an unavailing sacrifice. Assuredly
we have no desire to press hardly on an officer whose
personal gallantry and devotion have secured for him
the admiration of the survivors of the fatal 25th of
.Iuue, A sense of public duty, however forces us to
express our conviction that had Admiral Hope been
less confident—had he taken the measures which he
would infallibly have adopted if he had been about to
attack French or Russians, the disaster could not have
occurred, It is absurd to suppose the defence could
have been to any great extent conducted by Europeans.
.There may have been Russians, or French, or Germans,
or Americans, or even Englishmen, behind the walls of
the Taku Forts; but it is simply ridiculous to imagine
they insured our defeat, while the stress laid upon their
alleged presence seems as if our officers were trying to
account for the failure of their enterprise by admitting
they would never have conducted it as they did had
they'been attacking Europeans. In fact, their excuse
is that they could not believe the Chinese would stand
to their guns in the manner they did. They could not
believe, though there was a skilful arrangement of
booms, stakes, spikes, and barriers in the water, that
there was any skill at all on land, thnt guns could be
masked in those new earthworks, that trenches and
holes could be dug out in the mud-banks, that Ihous-
ands of men could be coucealcd behind the curtains of
the forts. And why ? Simply because they could not
see anything of the kind. But they must have known
that the Chinese, however we may despise them in the
field, work their artillery with resolution, and will hold
on to their cover till attacked with the bayonet. Are
these barbarians, whom wc are training to warfare by
frequent encounters, never to improve? Are we not
assured they arc imitative in the highest degree, nnd
that they arc crafty, ingenious and false? With such
knowledge as we had of them and of their character ;
with the suspicious circumstances attendant on the
arrival of the flotilla ; with the evidence of their intention to resist us; with the new forts of the Peiho
before our eyes, wc had no right or reason to rush
headlong on in this disastrous tilt without any reconnaissance to ascertain the strength of the enemy.
Indeed, in the Peiho, we seem to hrve taken it for
granted, in spite of hostile indications of an unmis-
takeublc character, that there was no enemy at all, or
one so imbecile that he would fly at the first round of
shell from our steamships. One could have expected
at least that provision would be made, in case the forts
were found to be armed and occupied, for the immediate binding of the men ut some point below the forts,
whence they could have taken those lines of curtains
und open bastions in th» rear, an operation which no
Chinese troops have ever yet withstood. But, no ; it
seems the fashion now-a-days to " send them at it"—
to throw a handful of men at a position of unknown
strength, aud then, if by their matchless valor all
turns out well, to assume the credit of great generalship, and if the attempt is unsuccessful to cry "Who'd
, have thought it?" This phrase, indeed, comprises the
i whole essence of the defence which is made of the
I conduct of the Peiho assault.
No nation can expect to be always victorious. AVe
I must accept a defeat now and then with a good grace ;
| but it by no means follows that we are to accept every
I disaster as inevitable, and "Who'd have thought it?" as
I an adequate explanation. In this case Admiral Rock
liiinde a gigantic mistake—he despised his enemy, nnd
[when, ailer three hours' lighting, he saw his flotilla
[sunk or disabled, he determined to send them "at it."
[The men of the Naval and Marino Brigades were
■inarched under such circumstances as to render victory
■impossible to carry uiibrcue.hed forts by escalade. But
Ilhcir bidders were, as almost always happens, not forth-
Routing. The same thing happened twice ut the Redan.
AVhenever such is the case the men must submit to be
shot down and driven back, unless they can clamber up
Hie defences.
AVe are. now about to enter upon a new war with
tlhina. The perfidy of the Court of Pokin must be
Sharply, fully, and inexorably punished. But let us fully admit that we have a new enemy to deal with ; that
Iho fanatic Mongols are now arrayed against us ; that
Ihcir leader is brave and skilful, and full of strategic
device,—let us even throw in a handful of Russians,—
find, thus prepared, we shall run no risk of defeat. The
news of ibis sanguinary repulse will not only fly through

Mental races at any hazard, or bo content  to see the
a squall, she was loaded with IH tons of cargo, nnd
started from the Tees on her long and perilous voyage.
On reaching Falmouth, the captain and crew, becoming
fainthearted, put into that port, and declined to proceed further. A message was then sent down to Liverpool, with the object of procuring a captain for the little vessel. Ultimately, Captain Richard Brcckon, a
member of the Liverpool Mercantile Marine Association, and the all-hut successful candidate for the
schoolship Conway, offered to navigate the vessel to
Bah in. After much difficulty a crew was got together,
but so fragile was the appearance of the tiny bark, that
one of the crew absolutely jumped overboard no less
than six times in a vain attempt to escape, the gallant
captain on each occasion capturing the would-be runaway. On the 20th of April last, the Little Lucy again
being ready for sea, Captain Breckon hoisted sail, and
fearlessly "steered down channel, his friends at Falmouth bidding him a sorrowful adieu, with the conviction that he never would reach Bahia. The bold
captain, however, had no such fears, he had been to
every part of the globe, was thoroughly familiar with
every trade, and, having confidence in his little craft,
with a full and flowing sail the Little Lucy bowled
down channel, and the result proved that Captain
llrcckon's judgment was right. Nothing of importance
occurred until the vessel reached the Bay of Biscay,
when she encountered two severe gales, but, miraculously ns it seems, she weathered both nobly, rising like
a cork to every wave. There is no doubt that to the
unparalleled seamanship of Captain Breckon was due
mainly the safety of the vessel and her crew. After
clearing the Bay of Biscay, the Phoebe Dunbar, a large
ship belonging to London, with passengers on board,
descried the Little Lucy, and, astonished to see so small
a craft in such a latitude, the master signalled to Captain Breckon his wish to communicate. Accordingly
the latter ran his tiny vessel under the quarter of the
Phoebe Dunbar, when 100 opera glasses and telescopes
were levelled nt the miniature ship beneath. After
parting from the Phcebe Dunbar the Little Lucy encountered tolerably fine weather, and at length, after
a passage of -111 days from Falmouth, Captain ilrcckoi
entered Bahia, where the appearance of his vesse
created, as might be expected, a great sensation. AA'hen
the length of the voyage is considered, the smallness
of the vessel in which it was made, the short time in
which it was accomplished, and the danger and risk to
be encountered, the voyage of the Little Lucy is an
event perhaps without parallel for courage, skill, and
daring. Captain Breckon is now in Liverpool, and it
is to be hoped that the rare qualities he possesses may
linil a fitting sphere for their development.—Liverpool

The Giikat Eastebn,—The Mechanic's Magazine thus
treats of the Great. Eastern as a war ship : AVithout
in the least detracting from her commercial qualities,
or increasing her cost ; Mr. Scott Russell has so constructed her that no less than 300 10-inch guns might
be placed on board of her and be fought, if the Government should at any time desire to convert her into
a ship of war, either temporarily or otherwise. This is
no small matter. She is already, it should bo understood, proof to ordinary round shells, and her speed
will at least be fifteen knots an hour in all probability.
.Moreover, her bow is both fine and strong enough to
secure her against material injury should she encounter
a foe after the fashion of a " ram." She is likewise
divided into numerous water-tight compartments. AA'e
need to take no pains to express the value of such a
ship, armed as we have said, would be to us, as a
weapon of either offence and defence.

What an Eve Dear.—Among the recent inventions
of science is n false moveable eye, warranted to open
and shut, squint, stare, wink, cry, and perform all the
other operations of which the human eye is capable.
Unfortunately, the inventor cannot promise that the
false eye shall see, though we are well aware that looking at matters with a false eye is a very common practice. Ingenuity certainly goes a very great way in
these days in supplying, by means of objects of art, the
deficiencies of nature. AVe cannot enter an omnibus
without being told through the medium of a conspicuous placard, that there is "No More Grey Hair;"
though we cannot help taking it into our head thai
there is, for our own locks give the white lie to the
llatteriiig announcement. It's true we have not accepted the invitation to go to some Emporium, and have
our poor old head placed in the dyer's hands: for
though we would do almost anything to render ourselves agreeable in the eyes of the world, we are not
yet prepared to dye for it. Besides, we have seen
specimens on some of our female friends, and we have
a great, objection to a prismatic head of hair, which is
the usual consequence of an attempt to turn grey into
black, or a decided carrot into a delicious chestnut. AVe
should like to see the experiment tried of how far the
false might be made to supersede the true, in that decided mutter of form, the human body. Legs and arms
may be, and are, replaced by artificial means ; teeth,
hair, and eyes arc to be bought singly or by the set;
and who knows how many people wc should find with
false tongues, false hearts, and wooden heads, if we
had but an opportunity of detecting them ? AVe must
confess that in the notion of false eyes we seo something very hard to real—ise.—Punch.

"Gaiiibai.di's Englishman."—Our readers will have a
lively recollection of the paragraphs which went the
round of the papers during the war in Northern Italy
respecting an Englishman attached to General Garibaldi's
corpse d'armee. Terrible stories were told of his coolness and unfailing accuracy of aim. lie surpassed, it
was truly said, even the sharpshooters of '-Hunters of
the -Alps." But it was untruly stated that he shot down
human beings for sport merely, as he would game, aud
was .indifferent to the cause of Italian independence.
AVe have the honor of Captain Peard's acquaintance,
and, from our knowledge of his sentiments, we are convinced that lie is a fearless and devoted friend of the
glorious cause to which he has dedicated his life. He
requests us to give insertion to the following letter :—
"Quartiero Generale del Generale Garibaldi, Modena,
Sept. 5.
"My Dear Sir:—An extract from the Daily News has
been sent to me from England, containing such gross
falsehoods regarding me that I shall feel obliged (for
doubtless they have been copied into the local papers)
if you will insert this my denial of the statements
there made. I had the honor of being acquainted with
the accredited correspondent of that journal in Brescia;
he knows as far as he is concerned that they are false,
and, more than this, I declare the writer knew them to
be so at the time he penned the lines, lit. 'AVhenever
he hnd kill an Austrian he was seen to mark him down
in his pocket-book.' 2d.—'He was kind enough to show
me his book.' No. 2 is a gross and wilful falsehood. I
never marked down any Austrian either 'dead' or 'uncertain,' and never showed any one 'my book,' lor one
simple reason, that I have none to show. 3d.—'He
assured me that ho professed the utmost indifference
to the cause of Italian independence.' This is false as
the rest. I have never expressed any feeling but one
of devotion to the cause of suffering Italy. Had such
been the case 1 should scarcely have come 700 or 800
miles to join General Garibaldi's corps, have followed
him on foot from the banks of the Po to the shores of the
Lugo di Garda, and afrerwards to the Stelvio, and exposed my life in every one of his engagements, not only
to the Austrian bullets, but, also to an Austrian halter
—for the Ost Deutsche Post announced that I shall be
hanged if made prisoner 4th. 'He is like one of those
Italian Condotieri of the middle age, who made war for
pleasure, without enquiring whether the cause he served
was the wrong or the right one.' Not only is the oppression and tyranny of the Austrian rule such that in
England it can neither be conceived nor credited, but
the gross brutalities exercised towards the persons of
the Italians of both sexes are such asto be execrated by-
all civilised nations. From the days of Attila, the Hun
has marked fair Italy for his pray, but Attila and his
barbarous hordes could not have committed more frightful outrages than those of their descendents. It has
been my pride to carry my rifle in the ranks of the Italian
army, and still greater to have served under and won
the friendship of sueh a man as Guiseppe Garibaldi.
'Dieu et mon Droit' is Italy's motto. May God defend
the right. I have followed my general through the
plains and mountains of Upper Italy, and will continue
to follow him ns long as he draws his sword for this
noble hearted people. Like all the rest of his devoted
followers, it is to me indifferent whether his camp is on
the mountain or the plain, ou the banks of the Ticiuo or
the Po, the Arno or the Tiber. Ho has-snly to sny
' Avnnti,' and the cry that has so often carried panic into the enemy's ranks, 'A'iva Garibaldi,' will rise from
our hearts through the hills and valleys of Italy.   I am,

brick dwelling-house, the exact locality of which is
no business of ours. He was received by a stiff, well-
dressed lady, who could well be recognised as a widow
of some year's standing. On learning the mission of
her visitor, the lady invited him to take a seat in the
hall. Having arranged himself into a working position,
he inquired for the number of persons in the family of
the lady.—"Eight sir," replied the lady; "including myself,"—"Very well—your age, madam?"—"My age, sir,"
replied the lady with a piercing, dignified look, "I conceive it's none of your business what my age may be;

duty to make the inquiry."—"AVell, if the law compels
you to ask, I presume it compels me to answer. I am

A'ICTORIA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER  15.
Thk franchise bill has become law, and before long the people of this Colony will be
called [upon to exercise those grave and responsible duties which devolve upon them as
electors. AVe trust they will regard those
duties in their proper light, as upon the votes
they will cast in the coming elections, will
depend, not only the present welfare, but the
future greatness and stability of the country;
thorcforo it becomes to each man a matter of
tho most serious importance, to whom he
gives his vote. AVo hope to sec in this now
Assembly men of enlarged and liberal views,
not thoso governed by the wishes or interests
of any particular cliipie or party; but men of
• experience, of education, and common sense,
who will devote their whole timo and energies to the advancement of the prosperity of
this our home.
The new House will doubtless have to originate many measures of vital importance to
our future well-being, and it behoves us to be
true to ourselves and only return men whose
antecedents qualify them for tho responsible
position of legislators for our infant country.
The first and most important duty that will
devolve upon   the new Houso, will  bo the
thorough revision of tlie financial affairs of
the Colony, and it will require much legisla
tive ability and serious deliberation to put
them on a  satisfactory footing.    Tho  land
question must also immediately come under
discussion, and we trust that it will be found
that tho members will bo men who see the
necessity of giving every encouragement to
immigration, and that they will bear in mind
that it is far better to give tho land away to
industrious agriculturalists, than to see it unoccupied, and theso hardy sons of toil loading
for the adjacent  territory.    A liberal  land
system will be the means of populating this
country, and want of population is the main
drawback from which wc are now suffering.
Without an agricultural community, no country can prosper;  at least so experience of
other recently established colonics   teaches
ns.  Tlie agricultural lands of Australia and California, have done infinitely more to advance
them than the gold, although it was doubtless
the gold which first attracted people.   AVe
arc similarly situated, and wc only require
the land to be thrown open to become equal
if not superior to either.    As wc have recently expressed in our columns, farms and farmers aro useless if their produce is hermetically
scaled in their barns for want of means of
conveyance to   market,  therefore  the con.
struction of roads will be  another question
endeavours to improve our condition. On
the other hand, the electors must not be dazzled by false glitter and pretensions, but—
reflecting that this may be the turning point
of (he Colony's history—let them select the
rio-ht men for the right places, men who have
an interest in its advancement—who have
come here as permanent settlers, and if the
electors of Vancouver Island return such
men, they will prove themselves worthy of
the privilege they exercise as free born En-

Edttoks, as other men, are liable to the
frailties of nature. An occasional repartee or
a warm passage of tho pen may pass between
them ; but as a class, it can hardly be denied
that tlie conductors of the Tress of Britain
and her Colonies, if not theperfect beings none
should expect them to be, have at least sustained a high character for honesty of purpose and impartiality of opinion. So to
acquit ourselves that wc may not reflect discredit upon the ranks in which we havo
enlisted, will ever bo our aim, and therefore,
when occasion requires it, wc will cordially
unite our efforts with those of the other
journals published here, when the object sought for, is the realization of a
great public good—and by tho following observations, tlie public will doubtless see that

Sib,—f cannot refrain from ex-pressing my deep regret at being compelled to address you on a subject
which, if calmly considered, must reflect on your official position.
A wise author has written  " rend not books alone,
but men."    While I nm not of those who shut one eye
and look with the other through a colored glass, which
has been stained with the opinions and prejudices   of
others, which gives ils   own   hue to everything seen
through   it,  and   parade   unfair   and   unwarrantable
charges  against the officials of a colony, yet I never
hesitate to speak out and enter an earnest remonstrance
against mal-administration, when it stands in bold relief before   me,   however  high   tlie  position   of the
person who disseminates.   Duty to ourselves, and that
which we owe to the colony, demand that our mouths
be not stopped; neither dure we crouch before dignity
and power; but fearlessly and unhesitatingly bring to
bear the public opinion of a free and enlightened people on manifest matters of importance.    My object is
uot by any means to excite strife, but to lend such aid
nsmay be in my power towards placing the management of the   Lands and AVorks   Department  of this
colony, ou the broad bases of honor, justice, and integrity, free altogether from   taint und suspicion, and
from an entangling knot of corruptiouists, who  servilely crouch around the seat of power   for sinister
motives.    It is only by having an   impartial, honest,
and wise management, and by protecting against palpable waste of public money, that our rights and social
prosperity cat. lie secured.    Shall we be passive under
the existing state of things?    Shnll we tamely submit
*.o injustice, and to the extravagant arrangement and
wasteful expenditure of officialism ; or, shall we raise
our voices against the wrong-doing in what we conceive to be, to say the least of it, the unwise exercise
of power?   The  question is not  remote—Ihe matter
appeals to the pockets of a colony in financial exhaustion—to the pockets and rights of the thousands who
may yet people these wastes—and it appeals also to the
j justice doc to those British subjects who have settled
in the colony ns  professional  men, who   have spent
years in study and practice,  and thousands of pounds
also in acquiring a proper knowledge of that profession.   Doubtless, you anticipate the perpetrated wrong
—the grievance complained of.    If nol, it is this:—
1. That you have contracted to have a survev of an
extensivo tract of this colony executed on a system unknown to yourself practically—utterly unknown lo the
Hoyul Engineers under your command, and admitted
by those who practice the method, lo be a system which
is a mere approximation to accurncy, and which casts
the Theodolite into disuse.

Cayoush, Oct., 20th, 1850.
Since my lust, reports of a most favorable nature have
come down from above, and the whole tone of the returning miners is good. Some fresh discoveries have
been made at or near Quesnelle River. I know of one
party, who we.it up to that River vory lately nnd took
into their heads to prospect on the trail, they washed
unless than $90 worth of dust, out of 81 buckets of
dirt, this too at a place that had been passed by hundreds.
I now hear that more miners than I bad previously supposed would do so, intend to winter up above. 1 have
ever feared that they will be very hard up for food
about February or March, as their supplies aro so fains I can learn,   limited.
Again. I urge upon nil to advocate roads. AVhen a
council is formed (I hope such is already the case,) for
the. people demand it loudly, its chief .study sliuld be
internal communications. Vou all seem asleep on this
point; without roads, the colony let the gold be ever
so rich, will dwindle away into ils pristine state. Hundreds of miners would have remained with us, if we had
but roads to enable provisions to reach thorn. I enclose you a specimen of the kind of gold found. You
sec it is about half the size of a one dollar piece, and
about half the weight of u dollar. It comes from
Roses' Bur, ten miles below ; it is part of the loot of an
Indian, the fellow making his wives (the ruffian has
three) pack dirt to him, while he rocks it out, which he
does as well as a white man. The dusky sultan is
milking a capital pile in this way. Apropos again to
roads ; this item is never out of a miner's mind. Since
July nn average of twelve Ions of freight bus come in
here weekly, and yet it does not keep pace with the demand. About once a month the place is minus flour;
in fact, to-day there is not a pound obtainable for love
or money. The three newspapers should unite their
voices to get what the people demand,—a proper set of
advisers for Hie Governor. These advisers would get
the people roads. I write what is the general opinion
on such points, and I must sny what appears to be a
reasonable one in a Brilish Colony peopled with a free
and highly intelligent race.

EUROPEAN NEWS.
New Chinese AVar.—Government had decided on
dispatching sverfil additional steam-frigates and corvettes together with a sufficient number of sailing frigates, to augment the squadron in China. It was also
expected, that a force of 1,000 additional marines would I
be dispatched to China. Great activity prevailed in
England in preparing the Chinese expedition. The London Timet says there are about 5,000 rather wrong-
headed soldiers in the vicinity of Calcutta, waiting a
passage home, and the object should be to divert them
from the west to the east. Assuming, however, their
re-engagement impracticable, there was still in India a
force large enough to overcome even the mighty Chinese
Empire. The London Daily News announces that Government had resolved to send at once a military IWcc
to China, and to send it from India.
The latest accounts state that threeOl-gun ships were
under orders for foreign service at Portsmouth, and four
gun-boats were being prepared with all haste for China.
The utmost activity prevailed at AVoolwich and elsewhere, in gelling off ammunition, &c.
The London Times Paris correspondent says it was
stated that 12,000 French troops had been ordered to
be held in readiness to depart for China. Gen. Wimfcii
i was talked of the command. The Paris papers, almost
without a single exception, express satisfaction at the
announcement of an Anglo-French expedition against
China, aud several of them mid a hope Ihut the union
of tho two flags against a common enemy will strengthen
the alliance between the two countries, and dispel ihe
recent rumors of n rupture.
The Sultan nearly lost his life recently. An Ionian
captain commanding an English steam tug drove his
vessel twice against the Imperial caique, and the Sultan

There hud been a complete suspension ,nf intercourse

The Times' Paris correspondent says if the reports of
the day may be credited, there is a possibility of the
settlement of the Italian question which would satisfy all
parties, and the general impression was, that the political horizon was likely soon to be clearer than for some
time past.
The Conslitulionni'l had given prominence to nn editorial iu which it calls on England to side with France
in the Italian question. The article was regarded as an FORT

the Emperor from the difficulties engendered at Villafranca.

nej what we want really is the (wo ravines bridging over,
nd a temporary road making immediately and leave
luncy work for oilier people something to cost little,
ml serve  every purpose  for years to conic.    I often
lish we had hnd a Crimean officer at the head of this
I'partmcnt,  one  who hnd  seen what   work  is—how
io road was formed from Kniuiesh to the Front the first
infer—how the trenches were made from the Mamclon
> the Redan, in places cut through solid rock, under
heavy  fire—had seen the mines formed  opposite the
ustion du Mat—and  tho grand military road  made
y an English Colonel from  Sevastopol to Yalton,
o$tly oil a ledge of rock overhanging llicsea.  Tho work
f forming a road lo the mines   would  hi;  nothing to
Inch a man, and he would have got, somo company to
kc it. in hand; for instance, why not the Hudson Bay
ompany; thoy sny they hove capital, and were making
proposal a short time buck lo have the whole country
iven   up  to thorn, in order to shut it Up;  however if
ioji will undertake  a rqad and havo it completed in
ivelvo months, to open it out, we will overlook this,

AA'e believe that had we had a council months ago, ns
we think we ought, the Commissioner of Lands nnd
AVorks would have been taken to task long ago, and
roads would have been constructed and be where only
wretched trails now exist. Miners would be iu thousands
instead q/ hundreds on the bars, the Customs Revenue
would fiaVc been double if not treble, and thus means
for going on with public works have been forthcoming. Mining laws would have been passed months,
instead of only weeks ago, and merchants and miners
would be enjoying a degree of prosperity which would
relket a splendor on this Colony entitling Governor
Douglas to honor. AVe nsk but little: we nsk for any
form of a council, Government officers and a few of
ourselves, and let the people of A'aneouver Island aid
us in our petition, for their and our interests are too
closely allied for one to suffer without the other suffering too.     This sir, is the  unanimous
A'oick of the People."
FRANCE.
There was quite a gathering of politicians at Biarritz.
In addition to the King of Belgium, Lord Cowley, Count
Reist and Count AA'alcwski hud gone-there, and Count
Cavour and the Duke of Alalukoff were expected.
ITALY.
News from Italy leaves little doubt of the determination of the Italians to rely upon themselves. Garibaldi
was preparing a general concentration of troops on any
given part. General Fniiti, Commander-in-chief of the
troops of the Italian League, hud fixed his headquarters
at Bologna. The soldiers disbanded by A'ictor Emanuel
were flocking around him.
The Government of Tuscany had notified the Plenipotentiaries of the Grand Puke to evacuate the place
within three days, nnd in case of non-compliance the
properly of the Grand Duke was to be sequestered.

POST OFFICE MISMANAGEMENT.
To the Editor of the " N. AV. Times."
Sir;—R is absolutely necessary that some alteration
should lake place in our wretched Post. Ollice arrangements here. For instance, the Aluil Steamer arrived
about seven o'clock this morning, and the mail bags
were only being delivered at (he Post Office at half past
ten.'.'! The Mail Steamer leaves at twelve; the Post
Officii!-*r-»'#*^j''«%:•' (*#«•*.'''*•?■**■"'^!**""f**'-'"***•»

Is this English management, or is it Gorman, Spanish,
or the worst semi-barlmriau Indifference? When it is
considorod that this is not merely a San Francisco mail,
but the English mail, with loiters from nil parts of tho
world, I think if tho Post Office cannot bring the mail
bugs threo miles in three hours, (from Esquimalt), they
hail better contract with the Alail Steamship Company,
or some other company, to wait until they can got their
bugs up and the letters delivered in time lo allow two
hours at least—six hours if possible—to answer our
correspondence, ..
The English Post Offico is the admiration of Ihe

Chapter IX.
On their return from the Grove, Lord St. Cluir went
directly to the state apartments, which Mrs. Norton, to
murk her love and veneration for her young master, hud
prepared for his reception: and Alfred, finding that
dinner would not he served for au hour, resolved to
spend the intervening time with the old housekeeper.
The old bnly, notwithstanding her prejudices against
Alfred Graham, who had leased her sadly when a boy,
found the youth who now chatted to her with easy
familiarity, so affable und kind that she soon more than
half went over to the turncoats, as she called those who
had already contrasted the characters ofthe two cousins,
to tho disparagement of the young lord.
She was presently pouring into his attentive ear all
her hopes and fears respecting her beloved young lord,
and heard with tears of joy Alfred's assurance that St.
Clair would never think of marrying a foreign lady and
living abroad, which was her constant fear, but after
his two years' tour it was Ills intention to look out for a
sweet English wife, and settle down at the old Court.
One thing the poor old soul mortally dreaded, it was
that the young earl should be caught by the baby-face
of Angelina Fitzmolton ; but at the same time she
avowed that little Sophy would make an excellent wife
for Alfred Graham, to whom she warmly recommended
her.
Thus they sat chatting till the dinner-bell sounded,
when Alfred, shaking the good ihimc by the hand, ran
whistling up ihe staircase, leaving the old housekeeper
holding the door; and while her eyes yet followed his
graceful form, she sighed to think of the contrast his
warm-hearted manner presented to the reserve of her
still beloved young Lord St. Clair.
The two following days were spent by Henry Fitzmolton and Alfred Graham in fishing, and by Lord St.
Clair at the Grove, where he was always warmly received by the amiable lady, who, happening at that time
to be more than usually busy, was constrained to treat
him in the most friendly manner. His lordship accepted her apologies very graciously, and begged that his
presence might not interfere with her domestic duties.
Mrs. Fitzmolton was all gratitude and servility, entreating that " Angela, dear," would exert herself to entertain his lor hip, hoping that Lord St. Clair would not
find the morning long, or feel neglected by her absence
—and supposing that it was too high an honour for her
to aspire to the delightful privilege of seeing him at her
family dinner-table. But St. Clair was in a most condescending humor, for he accepted the invitation for the
evening, and spent the day in hanging over Angelina's
harp, whilst she touched its gulden chords and exerted
her vocal  powers lor his amusement; or when Mrs.
Fitzmolton proposed a drive to /. , and on the  plea
of business left her daughter under his protection, none
could discover any symptoms ol pride or weariness in
the manner with which he held tho beautiful girl upon
his arm, or in the lover-like glances and attentions he
bestowed upon her. Yet Alfred had urged him, with
all the eloquence he could command, to givo up a suit
whi.di could only end in disapoiutment and disgrace.
* * * * * *
The sweet bells of the village church welcomed in
the Sabbath morning, and crowds were seen—
unheeded,  or only responded toby him with a haughty-
frown, or cold, vacant stare.
Alfred slipped ont as unnoticed ns he had entered,
and after glancing eagerly around the churchyard
strode quickly forward in an opposite direction, anxious,
apparently, to. overtake the wearer of a little brown
bonnet,  who was just vanishing through the turnstile.
"Sopliy I" be exclaimed, on coming up to her, "how
fast you do walk ; I am almost out of breath with chasing you so far."
" How could I suppose you were following me, when
I made Henry stay at home on purpose to entertain you?
Besides, 1 did not think you were at church, for I looked across two or three times to try to see you."
" Then you bad not forgotten mc, Sopliy ?"
"No, indeed! it is so-vcry-lVw wlw -ta'i*-2ay-Ba.ln*.e

but I could harly hope to bo remembered, for you have

mouthed astonishment at the crazy barber. " Landlord i" thev exclaimed, this man is mad I Have you

endeavored to coax him homo, but Sam still continued

St.   Cluir  and his cousin were, of course, nninn'r the
number  who were to  be seen winding their way  up
the slight aclivity, when suddenly the former hurried
forward, and in another moment he was  between .Mrs.
and Miss Fitzmolion, proudly conducting them towards
his family pew.   Alfred loitered on behind, seemingly
unwilling  lo proceed; but on the stopping of the bell
he quickened his pace, and entering at the little chancel
door, seated himself bcido the altar railing, in such a
position  that his cousin's pew, ns well as  that of the
Fitzmoltous, was entirely out of sight.
On the conclusion of the service, the tenantry and
villagers immediately left the church, and according to
their country custom, ranged themselves on cither side
the gravel walk, in readiness to move their hats or drop
curtsies to their beloved young lord ; whilst some, a
grade too high for such humiliating homage, dispersed
themselves in knots about the churchyard, to talk over
St. Clair's looks and conduct, and to speculate upon bis
marked attentions to Miss Fitzmolton, whose more than
usually elaborate trappings and change of place had
attracted the observation and censure of them nil.
At length St. Clair appeared with Angelina hanging
on his arm ; and so absorbed was he in uttering soft
renteuccs to her, that the reverential bows and kindly
greetings showered from all sides upon him were totally
f have taken with the poor neglected children, who
really are desirous to learn, and are for the most part
of a teachable capacity. But alas I the time will soon
arrive when I must leave them: and unless I am so
fortunate as to interest you in their favor, they must
again fall back into the neglected state from which I
took them."
"Nnmcyour wishes, dear Sophy, and, if possible, they
shall be realised."
"Oh I my wishes arc impossible at present," replied
Sophy, gaily, delighted with the eager attention of her
companion ; "for I would wish to have a nice large
school-house built, aud regular teachc-s engaged to instruct the children daily ; but that cannot be even hoped
for until Lord St. Clair comes of age."
"I don't see that at all," interrupted Alfred ; "his guardian is very liberal and benevolent—at all events he
shall be spoken to upon the subject; but as the building will take some time erecting, don't you think that
those two vacant cottages which you were pointing out
the other day would answer the purpose for the time?"
"Indeed I do I But where are the funds to come from,
my good sir?"
'"Out of the St. Clair coffers, to be sure 1" exclaimed
Alfred.
'■AVell! you are very liberal with other people's money.
Pray may I enquire what you intend contributing yourself?" asked Sophy laughingly.
He joined right heartily in her merriment, as he replied,
'•Oh I when I step into Mr. Dynevor's shoes, I will
follow his example, and bestow my blessing and books
on the establisment I But how in the world came you
to think of applying to mc? AVhy have you not pleaded
your cause unto Si. Clair?"
"AVell, I did think of it, and before he camel had
made up my mind to do it, but he looked so stern, so
haughty and forbidding, that I could not summon
courage to address him; and all at once the thought
came into my head that you, whose future life would
be intimately linked with the immortal welfare of those
very children, might be prevailed upon to make an
effort for them now."
"Well then, having promised to exert all my influence
with St. Clair and Sir Alexandor for the advancement
of your views, I hope you will allow that I approach
nearer your ideas of what a clergyman ought to be?"
"No, indeed ! I always think a clergyman should be
full fifty years old, of grave [demeanour and calm impressive features ; gray hair is indispensable, as it adds
so much to the sanctitiy of his appearance."
"And his wife?" asked Alfred, laughing.
"I am not quite sure thnt I could allow him a wife,
at least not without lessening his dignity in my estimation."
'•But St. Paul advocates marriage for a minister ; and
I have heard, more than once, what an exemplary parson's wife Miss. Sophy Fitzmolton would make 1"
"That is Mr. Dynevor's nonsense," exclaimed Sopliy,
blushing, "and not at all according to my notions, I do
assure, yon, for I think a clergyman's wife should be a
pale, thin, mild-looking woman, in a close crimped cap
and sad-colored gown."
They had now reached the school-bouse, and Sophy,
having examined her pupils, und heard them sing a
hymn, the bell again began to chime for prayers, and
they returned to the church. On their way, Sopliy informed Alfred that she was about to leave home, in
order to reside with an aunt, and promised to tell him
all about it after they came out of church.

"I'M GOING."
San Judbcrry wns the barber of the village—a
jovial, rollicking, free-and-easy sort of a chap,—free in
his manners, and easy in his shaving, ns his Saturday
night customers could testify. Sam, too, was a licensed talker, nnd used to charm tho cars of his admiring
audience in the stories of sport engaged in,—of races
won, and of the wonderful terriers unit forrits he had
possessed, and so forth. These little, accomplishments
rendered Sam deservedly a favorite in the village.
There was a charm in his conversation. It was unlike
that of your regular professional barbers who, knowing ho has the advantage of you, throws your red beard
in your teeth, and makes light of your ''bald head"
and " tainted hair," dilating upon your misfortunes
with a degree of satisfaction and delight peculiar to
the " sud-dy" brotherhood. Sum was not one of this
sort. A'our hair and beard wero safe in his bauds. Ho
would preserve ns profound a secrecy touching their
condition as a medical man would of his patients
ailments. This, together wilh his good looks ami
.planning._1luajiJi.''j*f»J-_nid vanquished the female heart,
and Sam, m conseqnwlw, lv.nl the exclusive privilege?
of cutting and curling the ladies and children for miles
round.
Being, as wc said, ofa sporting turn, Sum by universal acclaim, was chosen as general referee in all mutters thereunto pertaining, and was regarded by his
devoted admirers as almost infallible. He was never
known to fail in the accomplishment of nny feat or
trick he undertook—"but once," and that happened as
follow
A party of under graduates, from the University of
Oxbridge, came down one long vacation to Sam's village on a "reading" tour. Of course it was not long
before they made the acquaintance of so great a celebrity as Sam, who soon became as welcome at their
" rooms" as any customer was at his own barber's
shop. One evening, their stock of tricks and jokes being used up, and having thoroughly exhausted the
narrative of his respective feats and exploits, a novel
amuseine.it was suggested by one of the party, who
said he had seen it attempted, but never accomplished.
The trick was this: A person was to stand at the open
door, and holding the handle in his hand, keep repeating for an hour, without variation or stoppage, the
words " I'm going." Tho rest of the company were to
endeavor to interrupt him, by talking to him, asking
him questions, in fact, they might do anything they
liked, to divest his attention, but tench him. Sam
thought the affair simple enough and offered to bet five
sovereigns on his success. The -vager was accepter).
and the stakes placed upon the table.   Sam took his
money, hurriedly exclaimed, " No, no, gentlemen, come
now, that's not fair I" The scene which followed can
hardly be described. The noise and laughter that ensued had better be left to the render's imagination.
This only wo need add. that Sam's slakes were forfeited
—though wc afterwards learned they were returned to
him, and he was obliged to confess that for once in his
lite, ho was ''.done."

Lynn Cotnty, Oregon Tor,, March 11,1SW5.
Messrs. A. V>. A*, D. Bands, New York: Gentlemen,—In Hit
spring of 1S58, while cm our way from Indiana to this place, oar
eldest boy wns seized with a swelling and severe pains in tho
legs. whiVh day by day grew worse, until his legs contracted.
and because so" painful that he could not walk, and we had tn
cany him about like an infant. Wo readied Albany ou tlie 3d
of October, completely worn out by fatigue. By this time lis
was reduced to a perfect Fkeleton. Here we were enabled to
consult a physician (I>r. Hill), who honestly confessed he could
m>t euro him, although he could give him medicine that, would
relieve the pain. In this exigency something must bo done, or
death whs inevitable. Being recommended to try your Bar***
partita, I procured a bottle. After taking some, be appeared
worse; but persevering with It, \ obtained n second bottle,
which seemed to grapple with the disease, and caused a marked
Improvement: tbo swelling and pain in the legs were reduced*
his appetite improved, and Ids color began to return. Thus on-
conmged. I purchased a third bottle; while taking it, the swell*
lugs In bis legs broke, and some pieces of bone one-eighth of
an inch long came OUt, after which his legs straightened nnd
healed up. He is now perfectly recovered, baa no appearand
of being a cripple, and can perform most kinds of common labor,
as all our neighbors can certify.   Yours, respectfully,
