Fall or a Hoise Focxdbd on Stilts.—For more
thun a year past a two-story frame building, on the
south side of Broadway above Dupont street, has been
observed to lean considerably towards the cast, so much
so that the inmates had been advised to leave it.
Recently an excavation of the large lot adjoining has

opinion that he is one most easily influenced,
and thc gold and silver mines of Washoe—Ull-j been going on, ami having been carried under thc build-

high fare  at present   prevailing   here,   are
quite sufficient to draw his mind from the
contemplation of the plains of British Columbia. This would be a sad misfortune to the
colony.   Another year lost, or comparatively
'   n tlw so, will indeed  be heart-breaking—although those within to lenve.   w

we may be slightly consoled with the thought
that Sheridan once uttered—" it has got it in
it and it must come out"—yet we should infinitely prefer seeing as much of it as possible
at once-Tor on tTic same "principle tlia?a crisp
hunk note is the best criterion   of the future
| intentions ofa bachelor uncle, so is a nugget
the must acceptable proof of the intentions of
[a mine.    That the whole of British Columbia
is the source of vast wealth, is our firm and
unalterable conviction, and it, will be a bitter
' disappointment to us to think, that its speedy
development is stopped  by  what may ap-
bear to somepeople "trifles;" but, placed as we
are in regard to California, are matters of the
most serious consideration.
The Simolkimeen diggings may also draw
some miners away, but wc think that with the
natural spirit of enterprise,  they  will find
their way into British Territory, in which, in
fact, lies the source, and the greatest portion
ofthe Simolkimeen river—and the discovery
of gold in that river will, we have  no  reason
to doubt, eventually become a source of congratulation to ourselves.    In  fact,  with   the
riches we possess  in  British   Columbia,   a

when we should
liners from Han Ft-an-
we  have  all ardently
support, the latter yesterday afternoon tumbled into th"
hole made for its reception with a terrible crash.
There were two tamiles in thc house at tbe time, a portion of whom were carried over with thc house and buried in the ruins ; ami although three persons were severely hurt, none were fatally injured. But a few minutes before the occurrence, a Mr. Bryan entered the
building, and seeing ils precarious condition, urged
lile lie was yet talking, the
bed for thc door. A
Spanish woman, named Christiana, barely escaped;
some ofthe falling timbers striking her and tearing her
clothes, but not doing her any >crions harm. The man
less fortunate, was carried away and buried under the
ruins. By some miracle, however, he escaped with his
life, though icAisiili-rabli i.l^BSBBstVi,. iinr'.t and
other parts of the body. The spot he happened to occupy was the only one in which he could have been
placed without being crushed to pieces. In the kitchen, behind and attached to the bouse, was a Mexican,
named Jesus Poncho. This structure being also reduced to a wreck, Don Jesus was subjected to a very
uncomfortable comrpession. The poor fellow's breast
was badly injured, and his clothes rent In a fearful
manner. A family who occupied the lower floor ofthe
house were left unharmed, but badly frightened at
being turned out of doors in such an unceremonious
inanner. Not only was the wreck of the house complete, but thc furniture, crockery, Ac, were likewise
essentially smashed. Tbe accident was wholly the result of carelessness on the part of those cngnged in excavating ihe adjoining lot and who are deserving thc
severest censure for such reckless indifference to the
safety of life and property.—San Francisco Titles.
British Columbia,
glimpse of which wo have only as yet received, we have little to fear from competition if we are only true to ourselves. We
therefore again urge the Company to put the
Labouchere on thc Mail route, as wo believe
that at this juncture such an act would be of
the greatest service, and would be justly appreciated by the inhabitants ofthe sister colony. Jf this is not done, we shall have to
submit as best wtr may, to the consequences
which the present rate of fares will, we fear1,
entail.

TIIE ROPE-TYING SWINDLE EXPOSED.
Wc grieve for the ghost of " Jack Williams ; " we sigh
to Icnrn ihat mortals have conquered spirits. We rejoice, however, that humbug has met its defeat; that
old bush and his blasphemous nonsense will be listened
tu im longer: ami that Collins hud better tie up his
chest and be off, than submit himself to tied up any
j more. Why ivo thus grieve, lament and rejoice, results
from what occurred in tho apartments of Mr. T.Maguire,
in Washington street, yesterday, Certain gentlemen
were invited to witness the operations of u rival to Collins, who, from what we saw, is as superior to him
as tlio sun is to the stars. Dr. Irwin—for such is ihe
gentleman's name—disclaims all connexion with the
Spirit-world, and declares the rope-tying trick to be nt
purely scientific one. lie subjocted himself to be bound,
nud Capt. J. Baker was chosen out ofa number of gentlemen to be the binder. The choice fell upon him from
the fact of his having previously bound Collins at the
Music Hull on the nighl when Collins could not unbind
himself, ••Kind me as lightly ns you please," said the
doctor, "ami with as much rope as you like, and then
lenve me alone in this room," So they put around him
endless coils of rope, and hitched him up with countless
knots. Hnlf-iin-hoiir was expended in doing so. He
was then left solus. Collins takes an hour to get the
ghost of '• Williams " to utitic him ; and it was thought
that the doctor would take lunger. Not so. Two minutes and a half passed away. Presto I the door opened;
there stood the doctor, freed from every coil. " I want,
no spirits to unbind mc,'' said he, "it is but a trick ami
I'll show it.'' " Will you?" said MagulrOJ "very well
then, I'll engage you," and the doctor wns engaged
forthwith to make his appearance on the stage of tbe
Opera House next Monday aud Tuesday evenings, there
to be bound up, and there to free himself; that he may
expose the delusion of the so culled "spiritualists" und
disabuse the weak minded of nil their belief in the. amateur rope business of the ghost of Jack Williams.
There will be of course it crowded house, because the
expose will be an addition to the dramatic entertainments. All who have seen Collins must go and see
the doctor.—San Francisco Times.

MISCELLANEOUS.
A COUNTRYMAN having purchased a gallon of genuine
mountain dew, for want ofa moro business-like label,
wrote his name on a common playing card, which
happened to be the seven of clubs, and tied it to the
handle ofthe bottle. A wag coming alongand observing the manceuver, remarked, " That's an awful careless
way to have that liquor."—"Why so?'1 said Tom—
" Why ? Because sombody might come with the. eight
of clubs and take it!" Tom seized thc handle and
bolted.
A Yankee speculator, who had immense tracts of
land for sale ill the far west, used frequently to sny,
that a gentleman who was travelling there, saw a very
old man sitting at the door ofa log cabin, weeping bitterly " My friend," inquired the gentleman, " what is
the matter with you'/"—"Why," replied the old man,
"daddy jist gave me a awful licking, cos I wouldn't
rock gi'iiudibiildy to sleep." The gentleman rode off,
fully satisfied with the snlubrily and healthiness of thc
district, t0 produce such unparalleled instances of longevity.
A ciiAi' from the, country having visited the Crystal
Palace, thought he would treat himself to a French
repast at Soyer's Symposium. Upon the hill of faro

are many claims already to satisfy, and it requires a calm and observant eye to select
the   best    places for the   earliest   improv-

greatest practical importance, another another, ami so on ad infinitum. It will be the
arduous duty of Government to weigh every
reason, every advantage in the balance, and
on them will rest the responsibility of decision. In this selection it will always have a
guide that is generally unfailing—we mean
trade—which always chooses the best and
surest means to attain its ends. Theorists
fail—thc most sagacious explorers are sometimes at fault—but trade, never. Where the
pocket ofa mercantile community is concerned, there is an instinct to guard itasunerring

to trifle with our necessities—if the miners
have to pay a high price lor their provisions
for some time; ultimately the cost will be
greatly diminished by the chcapncs**of their
transport, and we are of opinion that all present sacrifices ought to be Incurred rather than
leave British  Columbia without roads, and

VICTORIA. .SATURDAY FEBRUARY 18, 1860.
"SVe hail with much satisfaction the advertisement on the part of Government for ten-'
ders for the construction of roads, and the removal ot impediments at Emroy's bar in British Columbia.
"We are happy to perceive the real wants
of our sister colony are attracting the attention of the authorities, and we hope and believe that this year will be earnestly devoted
to the manifold improvements that are so ur-
ge-p.t3y demanded there.
The opening of waggon roads on the Harrison-Li I loet and Yale routes, are of the greatest importance to the mercantile interests of
Victoria. Were another year to elapse with-;
out.their construction it is possible that the!
trade with the mines might pass from us into1
thc hands ofthe people til'Oregon, the country lying to the west ward of the Cascade;
Range and the neighborhood of the Okenagan •
lakes beiiiix comparatively level and casilvtra-
veiled over. These roads, therefore, will be
our salvation, aud we are glad that Government proposes t) commence them at once and
at any cost. It will of course be many vears
before an efficient system of roads can be accomplished * towards this great end all thc
energv of the colon v should be devoted. Thc!
vast importance of cheap and rapid comma-
nication can never be overrated; without it
a country however rich in resources must remain undeveloped and unknown, andanation
like our own, so old in the knowledge of the
growth of colonies, sufficiently appreciates!
this fact. The two nations, ancient and modern, who have molt distinguished themselves in opening fresh lands to civilization
are the Roman and British empires! in both
countries the art of road making has been carried to its highest perfection in their respective ages. Tho military roads of thc ancient
empire were the wonders ofthe timo, and the
latter nation -has been no less a model in this
respect to the world in a more advanced -period. It is, of course, to a people who possess
the facultj- for colonization, that belongs thc
power par excellence to appreciate till the numerous wants of a country reclaimed from the
wildncss of nature andof man; and the Anglo-
Saxon spirit of improvement will develope itself in British Columbia as elsewhere. The

G. J. "Wight, and G. Pcarkes. Esqrs. appeared on behalf of Mr. . de Cosmos, one of the late candidates,
for the town of Victoria, to sustain a mandamus or-j
dering the Governor of Vancouver Island to open the
poll books, or to furnish a copy of the same.
Mr. Wight's first proposition was—that the Governor
was amenable to the court, inasmuch as no application
was made by virtue of the Commission to him which
placed him in any other position io another subject.
Secondly that ibis was ardently pressed, as forming
Distress Vabbaxt.—A document to the following Lvmerican   and signed " 0. P. Q." was, 1)

expect from the tax
Some rem.irk- in n communication from Gen. Palmer
to tlie Oregon Tinas, in reference to the price of packing to tbe upper pari? of British Columbia compared
with that to be paid via Washington Territory, have
an important bearing on the subject, and a? they go
far tn add weight to tho necessity British Columbia bus
to make her roads by any possible means, (aud all
other methods failing, to raise the fund? ueenssary for
this purpose by a tax which has perhaps the appearance of being bvitdcnsotno, but which' on being thoroughly sifted nud duly weighed, and compared with
the total amount now payable for fond, loses much if
a it all of its terrors), ii would be well to make a slight
allusion to thorn here. Gen. rainier is jintnrally
anxious to get goods transported into British Columbia by thc Dalles and Columbia Kiver, and
he compares the price of transport from New Westminster and from Portland, lie shew? that at present
the cost through I!. ('. consequent on the state of her
roads, is thirty-two and three-fourth cent? a pound,
and nn the route through the Dalle.-' twenty-six and a
quarter cents, leaving six and a quarter in favor of
that route. This has been used, and will for somo time
continue, to be used as au argument against the present mule tax. as it is triumphantly pointed out that
two cents will bo added to the cost of packing, and
that a balance of eight cents per pound will bo left in
favor of the other mule, nud ihat the B. C. mcichants will therefore be unable to compete with Washington Territory. But the question lin? another aspect
when viewed from a different quarter. General Palmer
shews pretty conclusively that tho high cost, of packing
in B. 0. is owing to the stale of her roads. It is impossible to state exactly what tho cost will be when a
gonl road is open tliG whole way, but it may be fairly
stated that at least a third will be taken oil', the thirty-
two and three-fourth cents is tlierefniv reduced to
twenty-two cents, which places the balance in our favor by four and one-fourth cents. There is no reason
why a much larger reduction should not be made, when
Steamers can reach Yale.
The mad from Yale to Lytton is the difficulty; that
once over, the remaining portion from Lytton to Alexandria offers ratio or no obstruction, nnd has plenty of
(odder along its whole course for pack animal?, differing in this respect from the Harrison and Lilloet rond
where food for the animals has to be taken with them.
The Fort Hope and Boston bar trail can never be of
much importance while the mountains remain in their
present position, impassible from tho snow which
clothes their sides many months in the year, and nl-
wnys most arduous and dangerous to puck animals
from tho eitreuie declivity of their sides.

Tims- District.—An extremely rich bed of ir'on-
jbf vast extent, has been discovered in Cleveland,
fen Stokcsley and Whitby.    According to tho re-
pf one of tho  Government  inspectors of mines.
principal scum varies from 10 to 15 feet in   thick-
ajd thero are two smaller seams  lying below it,
Ig.iu-thickness, from six inches to two foot oach."
fcl'iires that "in quantity it is incxhniislalilp," and
ost of working it. Is a mere trifle,"    It contains
cent,  of iron in the  unciilcined stone; nud he
fe' (lure is little doubt of its creating a great revo-
Jiu tin'iron trndo than that, which   resulted from
Icovcry of tho black band in Scotland.   In no
'the country could iron be produced so cheaply
this district.   The  Cleveland  Hills will  become
ptre of the largest iron district in England.'1—

THE PROSPECTS OF THE SPRING CAMPAIGN IN
BRITISH COLU.MBIA. *
The rush tothe mines has already commenced. Since
tbe first of the month 30 skill's and canoes, full of men
i. .vi left this port: and from the 21st of January the
number amounts to 43. Taking the average number
of miners in each craft as 0, between 250 and 200 have
left us in this manner. The Otter and Eliza Anderson
iu their two last trips could not have taken less than
300 passengers. Altogether, we may safely estimate
the number of miners who have left this town during
the last.". weeks at 500. There is an evident determination on thc part of the miners to take advantage of
the favorable weather at this early period of the spring,
and : 1 get through the Canons as early as possible.
Thi re are also many places in the numerous gulches and
..... - which run into Quesnell River, where big strikes
are sure to be made, nud which are well known to
Many miner? now on the Lower Eraser, who are natural:- anxious to return as soon as possible. At the
latest accounts from Cayoosh more than 300 tons of
■roods had already arrived tliere, and plenty more are
.,:i the road; Although it is the prevailing impression
tii-at provisions in the upper country will be nearly as
dear this spring as during the last autumn, it is not at
all improbable that the quantity of provisions dis-
patched and the competition that must ensue will have
:in> effect uf lowering tlie juices considerably. Many
traders cannot afford to wait, and will have to realize
at any cost. Added to this, miners seem to prefer
takiiiir their own provisions for some months with
them from this place, and the canoes which have left
were nearly all well supplied. Should the rush from
Sau Francisco be deterred, or not take place in such
numbers as was expected, it is not at all unlikely that
some of our enterprising tradesmen will burn their
fingers. We should recommend a little caution in their
operations.
