THE AT'STRIAN 1...1T-TRI..
(5fa»» Thc London Times.)
.Anf-'tria-- obstinacy has hecm tried in old
times against the Tarii, the Prussian, and the
prenehman. and has come out of many encounters, if not conquering, at least nnoon-
quered- It is impossible to dispose of a
dynasty and a race -which has stood undismayed in so many disasters, and has stir-
mounted so many difficulties. "Within the
next few months, however, the antique -frame-
■work of .Le Empire- may he exposed to heavier shocks than it has hitheito felt. There
are some who are ineeduloas as to another
Auj-irian war That they have many argn-
nu-nts on their side ofthe question earn..,! !>e
doubted. All policy, prudence, good sense.
and military calculation tend to dissuade ihe
Italians fiom attacking their enemies in Verona. Even now the dominion of Victor
Eraaumael over the southern part ol the Po....
insula can hardly be called secure. He is
annexing great terrilories to his own under
thc hostil* eye ol the Northern Powers and
the capricious nonchalance of France. The
non-intervention which allows bim success is
only a sell-imposed restraint of one great
State, and might be discarded .lO-morroW, to
the uiter ruin ol Italian hopes- The Sovereign whom we may now call King of Italy
i> at the head of twenty-two million souls, but
this great dominion requires consolidation,
control, and instruction in all tbe duties of
citizenship. There is not. and cannot be for
years, a strong Italian unity- Tbe l'ie.itnon-
tese have beaten the foreign troop9 in tlio
sen ice of tho Tope, and they have defeated
the native armies ot the King of Naples. Al-
thoneb tlie great number of the Neapolitan
peopfe have voted the Crown to Victor Em-
manual, yet it would show ignoranco oi human nature to suppose that ihey can be free
Irom jealousy of the army which lias emtio
among them to finish llie defeat of their iate
t-'overeign. Although tlie ''iedmontese Gen-
rals have taken care to avoid as much as possible a contest witli tho Neapolitan forces,
they have been obliged to give battle twice,
and, .raving gained easy victories, they are
now driving tlie enemy into a foreign territory. With a powerful if not a numerous
section of the Neapolitan peoplo wounded in
their personal vanity, with the inhabitants of
Umbna and the Marches just severed from
thc oldest and most unyielidng tbrono in Europe, and with a great French garrison at
J-ome, it would seem wonderful thnt any politic Sovereign or thinking people should meditate a war against thirty-live millions of
Austrians, strongly posted in (he country
they occupy, and possibly supported by the
whole lorco of two other first-class Slates-
Bnt tho Italians in this matter Rro not a
thinking people. All accounts agree in representing that tho desire for war is so strong
that tho new King of Italy will have much to
do to restrain it. Success, wondoi'All,
unheard-of, has naturally rendered tho Italians incredulous o. defeat- After what has
beer, done with Garibaldi's ' Thousand,' they
may bo pardoned for believing that enterprise and courage may do anything. But
six months ngo a small party of ill-armed
Volunteers landed on the Sicilian coast, headed
by a partizan leader. This handful of men
had been condemned by tbe opinion of European Governments and disavowed by the
King whose flag they claimed as their own.
Daring has triumphed over every difficulty,
and before the year comes to a close the little
force of Garibaldi lando J from his two hired
steamers will have founded a great kingdom.
To tlio enterprise of one man, blamed, derided
and ridiculed in the highest place,., Italy
owes her existancc as a nation. Is she, then,
'lot justified in believing that her safety lie-,
in daring, and that no taint heart will over
achieve her independence or consolidate her
lilcrtics? It is almost announced that
Austria is to bo attacked in the spring. The
regular Picdmonteso army is large, and
Garibaldi on taking his departure told the
.Italian peoplo that they must prepare for a
great, war, for which a levy in mass would be
required. Theso various warning-i cannot be
overlooked- Wc do not pretend to penetrate
the secrets of Victor Emmanuel's Cabinet,
but, to do Count Cavour justice, be is not a man whose
•'hemes require much penetration. He has all nlong
had only one policy—to attack Austria at the. first favorable opportunity,—nml when he has made sure of
«* ranee he will assuredly hasten the conflict as mnch M
possible. The Cabinet of Turin may be depended upon
"y the patriotic Italians to make no delay in the prosecution of thc war. Everything which has recently
come from the Picdmontese Chancery,—every speech
nom thc Pie.imont«.„e Chambers, .show that the Italians
are determined to provoke their enemy to a new conv
oat. They trust in France, in the synip-uhy which
'heir name and history excite in Europe, and in tin na-
j"-e strength of which they can now bowl. U tu*y be
tout Italy unaided may not, be able to cope -villi the.
•orc.s of the Austrian Kmpire, bnt tha fr.-lra.n_3 are
fitaer not of this opinion or they expect, to be assisted

We have heard ofa school-teacher whose  invariable
custom was to insist on every new pupil,  no  matter
how  far  advanced in scholarship, to commence at  the
primary stage of educationandgradually wade through,
in   proportion   to his aptness, hi3  oft-repeated  tasks.
The system of policy pursued in our colonies  seems '.o
be modelled after this exceedingly  enlightened plan.
Whether as a colony we come into existence in the year
of our Lord 1858, or a century previous, the same routine  must be rigidly adhered to.    Other systems  may-
arise and governmental machinery undergo as much modification and improvement as the numerous progressive
changes in the steam-engine, still wc must guard  with
the  utmost care  our antique policy  from  innovation.
From  our high pedestal of constitutional Government
wc look down wilh supreme contempt on the miserable
Bourbon  who is  obliged to fly  from  his  crOwn  and
country  through his obstinate adhesion to a barbarous
despotism,   and yet we cling ton land system which  13
just as barbarous, just as stupid, and just as great an
anachronism in tbe present age as was the late Neapolitan Government, With the unfortunate history of the infancy of every liritish Colony staring us in the face—with
all the evils arising from speculation in the public lands
—with the enormous strides ofthe neighboring Republic
consequent  solely  on   her liberal   land  system—■with
everything  in   fact  before our eyes  to  take   warning
and   example   from—we still persist in clinging to the
monstrosity  of selling  thc  public  land  in unlimited
quuntitles by auction.
When the * Pre-emption Proclamation ' was first issued, thc great outcry was against the field it opened
for speculators, lt was therefore natural to expect that
in any future Land Proclamation this auction clause
would have been repealed. The Proclamation !
which we publish to-day affords no such satisfaction. j
It is gratifying of course to see the land reduced to one
dollar an acre ; but this very reduction so long as the
auction  system exists  on
Governor's Visit.—It was His Excellency's intention to visit New Westminster as soon as the Housa of
Assembly in the neighboring colony would be prorogued. We hear on all sides a disposition to give His
Excellency a reception worthy a Governor vtho has,
since the Municipal council came into existence, bestowed so much attention and interest on the capital of
British Columbia. AVe hope, however, our residents
will press upon His Excellency's attention the necessity
of his affording them more frequent opportunities ot
coming into personal communication with him—or in
other words, the desirability of his taking up his residence in the colony to an equal extent as in Vancouver
Island.
A Presbyterian Minister.—We arc informed that
a movement 1ms been made amongst thc Presbyterians
of New Westminster and other places in both colonics
to obtain clergymen from Scotland of their own denomination. Requests to this effect have been forwarded
to the church authorities in Scotland.
Prorogation.—The Vancouver Island House of Assembly was to have b-en prorogued last Thursday.
The House it was expected would meet again about the
beginning of April.
CrsTOMS Revenue.—The Customs revenue for the
week ending Jan. 26th were—Duties, £175 11 8: Harbor dues, £i 17 2; Head money, £3 8 0; Tonnage
dues, £20 - 7. Warehouse Fees £1 0 ll. Total
£205 19 5.
Royal Tieatre.—The members of the Dramatic
club of the lloyal Engineers gave two performances in
this theatre <u" the evenings uf the 25th and 31st of
January. On both occasions the house was filled to
excess,"the citizens having availed themselves of the
almost general invitation extended by the members ol
the club to attend. Tbe performances passed off to ihe
entire satisfaction of the audience, ihe performers
I,nving acquitted themselves of their various roles in a
very successful and creditable manner, .-bowing a decided improvement on theirfirst entertainment. Friday
evening's programme concluded with Ethiopian mi„-
strel-y, and, although their first attempt at anything of
this kind, created a great deal of laughter by their
conundrums, jokes, lecture, kc, niter which the
audience dispersed highly pleased with the evening's
amusements.
Tiik Esquimalt Murder Cask.—The  case of Win.
makes  speculation  more j Millington for the murder of Robt. Combs at Esquimalt
rampant  and  enables    the  land shark    to  purchase   on the 2nd January last, was triel at the Victoria Court

tion on a land system of this kind, it is sacrificing the
best interests of the country for the sake of getting
hold of the purchase money sooner than it would be
obtained under an exclusive pre-emption system. The
revenue even is no gainer by the transaction, more than
the inteicst on the money ; while it is immensely injured by the concentration of so much Unproductive
land in the hands of a few individuals who never intend
raising an ounce of grain or producing a single vegetable. Wc hnve not at present in the colony any great
number of men who intend becoming actual settlers ;
but we have unfortunately an influential class of individuals who arc intent on getting hold of every choice
available piece of land, for the exclusive benefit of the
newly.arrived immigrant, who will have the option to
lease it or purchase it at n price which will repay the
speculator some 300 or 400 per cent, on the original
cost. Our inducements to immigrants, we nre afraid,
will not be much increased by this fact ; nor will such
a landed aristocracy as the auction system invariably
engenders redound much to  the welfare—either pecu-
I that the prisoner and deceased had been drinl
j gether for sonic time previous to the fatal occurrence,
which resulted in high words and considerable quarrelling. The deceased got upon Millingtou's horse,
and on being asked to get off struck the prisoner
several blows with a stick when he obtained n pistol
nml shot Coomb-, the ball lodging in the spinal column
and causing death. The jury did not consider thc evidence sufficient to convict the prisoner ofmurd»r, and
consequently brought in a verdict of' Not Guilty.' The
trial created great interest in Court during the day
and the Court-room was crowded till its close.
Tlie proprietor of the ' New Westminster
Times ' having disposed ofthe type and material connected with the office in Xew Westminster will for some time to come publish
that paper in Victoria.  All those whose terms ' niarl.v or politically—of the country.  The past, and in
some instances even the present, history of the British
colonics affords us abundant proof of the pernicious
effects of a monopolising landed interest. Independent
of the material injury which its presence at once inflicts
upon the country, a political influence i. created which
becomes henceforward the incubus—the Frankenstein
of the colony.
In no instances perhaps has this been more glaring
than in New Zealand and Australia, and we really think
that the experience of both these countries ought to
have taught our legislators a lesson in dealing with the
land question. An obnoxious Mule Tax can be repealed
and its . fleets speedily obliterated ;   heavy import and
18,11.
ce,  lb
of subscription have not yet expired can have
their money refunded, or be Surnished with
the 'Times' as usual, as they may ieel disposed- Another paper will take tho place of
tbe ' Times' called the 'British Columbian.'
If it only advocate the interests which are
indicated i y its name, it will always have, in
our connexion with the * Xew Westminster
Times,* our warmest support; if on the contrary its principles be at variance with the
best interests of this  country  we shall feel
bound, on   the first request ofthe   people,   to \ other dues can be reduced or modified, and commerce,
with its elasticity, recover itself immediately ; but once
let our choicest tracts of agricultural lands fall into the
hands of speculators, and the evil is irremediable. In
tbis colony, with all our mineral resources, the effects
of sueh a scheme will be simply to blight our prospects
for all time.
Were wc on the verge of bankruptcy, nnd our credit
destroyed, there might be some shadow of excuse in
trying to raise money by the sale of public lands by-
auction ; but there is no country in the world in proportion to the population whose Treasury is in a more
flourishing condition than ours, and no country better
able to give away the lands for the purpose of obtaining
immigration. In fact we question very much whether
we shall ever obtain population in British Columbia
without some such inducement. When we consider
the question even out of the line of policy and discuss
it as one of right, the position of the land speculator
becomes as obnoxious to our sense of justice as it does
in the former case to our notions of wise legislation.
No man has a right to persist in holding land in its
primitive state to the detriment of the whole country,
nnd the immediate injury to the surrounding neighborhood ; but taxation is the only legal way in which he
can be punished, and a landed interest arising from the
system we have been condemning is generally found
sufficiently powerful to prevent any such hardship being
count .-minced by the legislature ofthe country.    If our !
It
remove the 'Times' at once to the scene of
its tormer labors. The change of place of publication is a matter of necessity with us at
present; but it will in no way alter our line
of conduct with regard to British Columbia.
We shall continue to advocate, as we have
always done, the rights and interests ot tho
people of this colony. We shall also be enabled to give our readers a much creator
amount of the general news of the day than
formerly. So far as Xew Westminster arrangements are concerned we shall be
placed in possession of local intelligence
equal in substance to any period of the past
history of the paper.
In a small community the life of an editor
is not a very enviable one, and he has very
often to suffer under the ill-will of individuals,
whose disposition is not always to sacrifice
personal interest for the public good. We
have made enemies frequently where we
might havo mado friends, but we have chosen
rather to look upon tho public interests as
being more in the immediate connexion with
tho duties of a journalist, than trying to obtain the good will of a certain portion of the
community. We arc glad to say however, des-
pite these small annoyances that the first paper
published in British Columbia has been a decided success. It bas brought tho attention
of Government to abuses which only needed
pointing out to be at once eradicated, and to
requirements which only needed urging in a
proper manner to bo at once satisfied. In
this respect our exertions present a favorable
contrast to the rather meagre result which
has attended the labors of the other journals

SHIMILKOMEEN ROAD.
At a meeting of the inhabitants of Hope held Jan.
22n,l, 1861, to take into consideration the practicability
of keeping the Shimilkomeen rnule road open during
the ensuing airing, Mr. E. W. Crowe was appointed
chairman and T. llotchin Secretary.
Mr. O'Reilly J. P. informed the meeting that, the Governor had offered a donation of five hundred dollars to
assist in the undertaking, after which thc following re-
rolutions were unanimously adopted.
1. That Hr. O'Reilly be requested to inform the
Governor tkat a largely attended meeting of the
inhabitants of Hope has been held, at which
His Excellency's views ofthe importance to Hope and
the colony nt large of keep:ng the Shimilkomeen trail
open, were cordially acknowledged.
2. That Mr. O'Reilly be requested to inform His
Excellency that tbe inhabitants of Hope have exerted
themselves to the utmost in meeting his wishes.
3. That Mr. O'Reilly  be requested to   petition  the

else the pre-emptive system is quite sufficient. Carried
out in its integrity, it enables every man desirous of
becoming a bona fide agriculturist to settle at once upon
the soil ; and we cannot, in looking over the world's
history as far back ns even the father of the human
race, disco* er any other legitimate use of this portion
of man's inheritage.
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.
New Buovs.—We learn that seven buoys nre in
course of construction for the mouth of Fraser river.
It is certainly high time that some steps should be
taken on the matter, when a steamer like the Otter,
with all the great experience of her captain, was obliged
to knock nbout some four hours on her last trip without being able to find thc channel. The fog which existed nt the time no doubt lent its aid to the confusion ;
but had there been a buoy of some kind on the North
Sand Head the vessel would have been enabled to have
kept a more respectable distance from tbe sand bank.
We are convinced the Government will find, after its
expensive experience, that a light-ship will bc a much
more effectual and a less costly means of "narking out
thc entrance to the channel than the repeated reconstruction of buoys.
5. That a copy of thc proceedings of this meeting
be forwarded to Ilis Excellency Governor Douglas, also
to the New Westminster Times and British Colonist.
To the Editor of the New XVestminster Times.
Sir,—The inhabitants of Hope have, responded liberally towards carrying out the object of the above
meeting, thereby enablirg the committee to hnve the
work of opening the road commenced with ut delay.
And as Its success is of the utmost importance to the
whole colony, and particularly to the mercantile community, they trust the inhabitants of New Westminster
nnd Victoria will also contribute towards an enterprise
which, if carried out, will open the communication
three months earlier than otherwise, and prevent the
trade with that section from being diverted to the
Columbia river. T. II.

Sir,—'Another B. C,'  'barked   up  the   wrong  sup-

To the Editor of the New Westminster Times.
Sin,—A communication appeared in the Inst number
ofthe New Westjiibsteii Times signer. 'Another li. C.,'
in which the writer undertakes to defend the character
of Govern ,r Douglas, and impugn thut ofu minister of
the Gospel.
Doubtless the writer in question h.is read tl, ,1 pari of
the Bible which forbid., our speaking evil of • dignities,'
but he has omitted to rend, or else forgotten that portion which snys ■ touch not mine anointed, do my people no harm.' I cannot think your correspondent has
come to that time of life which his grey hair-, betoken
without knowing tin,i the character ofa minister Is as
sailed as that ofa Governor, and 1 think you will admit with me that while he takes an individual to task
tor writing what lie suppose-' to be untrue, he should
be careful not to fall into the same error, as he has
most grievously done on this occasion ; for llo- Rev.

LATEST CHINA  NEWS.
By way of II ikodadi and Honolulu, we have clippings
from the Hongkong Chum Mail on the 28th of October.
A severe battle had been fought at a place called Chang-
kia-wnn where the allies had routed the Chinese General San-ko-'in-sin, and proceeded direct to I'ckin. On
the 6th of October, the Emperor's summer palace, a
short distance outside of Pekin, was taken and sacked,
and the following is thc writer's description of that affair:
The French column, together with Col. Puttie's Brigade ol'Cavnlry, advanced on Ynen-niin.yuen, the English column rather nearer Pekin, a large body ofthe
enemy having been observed (near the village now occupied by us.) The French entered with only two cas-
ualities, t^-o officers being wounded by the Eunuchs of
the palace. On the following day no signs ofthe French
being visible, the Englisll fired 21 guns to attract attention, and later in the morning the Commander in chiet
learned where they were. Lord Elgin, Mr. 'Wade, Sir
If. Grant, Sir R. Napier and their respective stuffs proceeded to the palace, and found the French had been
comfortably established there, and thnt a great portion
ofthe more valuable moveables had been already taken
away, leaving the heavy, but valuable nrticles for the
Englisll, or nt least what things the French could not
carry, they left for us.
On the 12th, nine Sowars of tho Sikh cavalry were
released and came into camp. They bring the distressing news that Capt. Anderson nnd Mr. dc Norinann
died from the effects of the brutal treatment received
from the Tartars, the former ou the 8th the latter on
thc 11th day after they were captured. The wounds
caused by the cords binding their wrists, insufficient
food and other inhuman tortures, having caused their
death. Oneof these Sikhs, a sergeant, was bound with
them, but survived, and has made a deposition ofthe
facts. They are all suffering much, and it will be long
before they can return again to duty. They were
brought from a town some 30 or 40 miles off, to which
they were conveyed soon after their capture. No information has been obtained about the two Eiiropcons,
Capt. Brabazou and Mr. Bowlby, the Times' special correspondent.
The Emperor accedes to all demands. Harry Pcrkes
and Col. Stephenson went to a hall of race],tion outside,
this morning, to confer with Hung Key, late Hoppo of
Canton. They told bim the city would be bombarded
if it was not surrendered at noon.
Thc siege guns were in position and other artillery
ready to open fire at the time appointed, when at a
quarter before twelve, Hung Key came out and said nil
our demands were acceded to, thc gate was open and
tl'ere would be no resistance.
The Generals and Staff, with the Punjiiubces and (.7th
Regiment, then entered the outer and inner gates, and
ascended to the ramparts and took possesion ofthe gate
and a number of brass guns, (30 1 believe,) and mounted our guns in their place. The British Jack and the
French Tricolor were hoisted, the former on a high polo
by thc side of thc gate, the latter out of one of the port
holes, where they show that Pekin is in the occupation
ofthe Allies, and that the vaunted invincibility ofthe
Imperial Celestial City was a myth.
The wall is 60 feet wide and paved, and the troops
inside have their tents pitched on it.    Thc only thing

All of these diseases you will soon be relieved of, by
itse of these Bitters, ns per directions on the Bottles.
This gi-ent rthti-ilyspeptic Is the result of profound aiid
elftbofftle study of one of the most celebrated physicians
of the present century, In the accomplishment of which
he lifts spent both time and money. Wc do not hesitate
to nftlrm thnt where Dr. Hosenbaum's Stomach Bitters
ate Used, a case of Fever and Ague cannot occur. It
has been analyzed by the most scientific chemists in
the Medical Faculty, and is now prescribed by nine-
tenths of the Physicians of the lahd. Try them—te3t
them—on your constitution, and gil yonr way rejoicing.
Afe you dyspeptic ?—take these Stomach Bitters.

The superiority of these Bitters has induced many to
put, up a spurious article. To prevent deception in
future, each cork will be branded, "N.B.Jacobs & Co."
And the labels will beer onr own signature, without
which, none are genuine.
Caution,— Consumers of Rosenbaum's BittCTS are
cautioned against the many counterfeits now afiont ip
the market, and especially against a cheap nnd worthless article called ItosenschFs Bitters, put up in this
by Messrs. Turner Bro.'s, with the avowed intention of
preying on the well-earned reputation of Rosenbaum's
Bitters, as a remedial agent in nil cases of Dyspepsia
and similar diseases. The genuine Hoscnbautn has our
name branded on each cork, and our signature on each

SNOW.
Last night the snow was failing,
It fell throughout the night,
I woke this morning, mother,
And saw the ground was white.
White were the peaceful meadows,
And white the tall, dark pines ;
And white was yonder mountain,
On which the sun first shines.
And in our own dear valley
The snow was lying deep ;
And in the quiet churchyard
Where my little sisters sleep.
And o'er their little tombstones
The snow-flakes formed a wreath :
But naught are flowers or snow-flakes
To those who sleep beneath.
We deck'd the graves last summer
With many a primrose gem ;
But whether flowers or snowilakes
It matters not to them.
But, oh 1 the snow ia lovely,
So beautiful and bright;
Pure as thc little spirits
Who wear their robes as white.
But in our valley, mother,
The footsteps come and go ;
And then how soon they sully
The pure new-fallen snow.
The trace of earth is on it,
On earth nil soiled it lies;
How soon it lost the beauty
It brought from yonder skies.
My child, on yonder mountain
The snow lies pure nnd high ;
No foot of man invades it,
It is so near the sky.
It sinks not to the valley,
Where earth's dark traces are,
And naught can soil its whiteness :
'Twas Kept from falling far..
Wrouldst though be pure and holy,
Remember, 0 my child I
That an earth-seeking nature
Must be by earth defiled.
Then let thy childish spirit
Stoop not to things below ;
Live in the light ot Heaven,
Like yon pure mountain snow.
MISCELLANEOUS.
The Hebo of Lccknow.—The following is the concluding paiagraph of an interesting article in a late
issue of the London Times on the life of Sir Henry Hav.
clock:—'On the morning of thc 24th the garrison of
Lueknow, the troops he had so often led to victory, and
the army of Sir Colin Campbell set out upon their return to Oawnpore. In the midst of their stormy march
was borne a doolie, followed by a few mourning soldiers ; few, perhaps, knew what was shrouded by its
curtains; thc dead body of Havelock lay inside. At
the Alumbagh the bearers turned through the portal
and bore their burden through the trees of the garden
to a spot surrounded by luxuriant vegetation. A grave
was dug there into which was lowered, amid the tears
of a few friends, the remains of the good soldier. The
letter " H,'1 cut in the bark of a sheltering tree, marked
the spot where he lay. Outside the garden walls rolled
all the thunder of an Indian march, and many a soldier
in that long column has since passed away on the field
of battle or jn tbe bospiial tent j but though friends
and country mourned them all. there was an unequalled intensity of grief for Havelock. because the nation
had just found out its aero when it learnt that be was
gODe forever. Tbey inquired into his past history, and
found he was a man of great military endowments, who
bad been distinguished in many fights, but bad till this
terrible time been depressed under the cold shade of
adierse influences. The record of bis life is, as we have
said, full of great lessors. We hope among them there
mar be one—not to the nation, for all the country needs
is knowledge.—but to our rulers, who do know tbe
value of her servants, inculcating their duty to those
who have entrusted them with power, and warning
them not to neglect, because they may be destitute of
interest or of wealth, soldiers who. like Havelock, may
Etalk out from beneath that •■ co'.d shade,'' under
which they have been lying so long, in the moment of j
the nation's agony, and leave to the country they
served and saved only the barren satisfaction of lavishing regrets and honors on tbe tomb which hides them
from us for ever.'
A White Captive among the Savages.—Many of
our readers may remember the massacre, last Fall, by
the Sioux Indians, of a parly of emigrants journeying
from Iowa to Oregon, the expedition, we believe, numbered scveuteen wagons, and all the travellers were
said to have been killed with the exception of two men,
who fought their way through, and two women, one of
whom was left for deal at the foot ofa precipice, but
was afterwards recovered and restored to her friends,
and the other taken into camp and compelled to adopt
the savage life of the Souix. This summer, when the
half-breeds from Pembina were at the Yankton camp
on the plains, some of them, as they allege, saw this
poor hapless woman in the wigwam of her captors.
They say that they conversed with her, and that she
was anxious to get away, but was unable to effect her
escape. Whether there is any truth in the half-breeds'
story we cannot say, but it is worthy of being enquired
into, and it found to be correct means ought to be
taken by the American Government for rescuing a woman of their country trom a position of misery nnd degradation which she must feel to be worse than death.

The Hrho and the Ariadne.—The account in The
Times of tbe relative behaviour f Her Majesty,s s'-ips
Hero and Ariadne ou their voyage home from America
la suggestive of several important considerations bearing
upon naval tactics with steamers. Suppose the Ariadne to be an enemy's frigate, name uuknown, and
being sighted by tbe Hero, and a chase commenced,
the former running at quarter or two-thirds speed
against the wind, thus forcing the Hero to follow at her
full speed, also under steam, just keeping out of her
reach till her smnll slock of coal is exhausted. The
Ariadna then turns upon her with her whole steam
power, iH-t-mancevering her, and raking her ns sh,j
likes. Would not the Hero bc, practically, a sailing
vessel against a steamer in such a case ? And of what
ri al service can the ' auxiliary screw ' be to a vessel
like the Hero, which steams very slowly at best, and
can only carry a week's coal ? Will not frigates like
the Ariadne be really more formidable than liue-of-bat-
tle ship, that can nekber sail nor steam better than thc
Hero ? Also, how .Wuld the Hero be able to cope with
such a vessel as the La Gloire ?—Army and Navy Gazette.
' Two- young ladies of Fairhaven recently fell equally
and deeply in love with a gentleman who visited them
very frequently. Being mutually acquainted with each
Other's passion, and being withal strong friends, they
romantically agreed to'draw lots' to decide which
should have him. The fortunate one lost no time in
making known to him the result ofthe drawing, nndlie
then informed her that he was already engaged to a
third lady.
Ninety-six thousand buffalo robes, worth $250,000,
have been brought from the Upper Mississippi this
year. They are all tanned by squaws, the Indian
braves never stooping to do such menial work. In
suite of this large number, prices will be remarkably
high this winter, as there are fewer old ones in market
than common.
Straw Paper.—A young Chemist of Toronto, C. W.,
a Mr. Clemo, about a year and a half ago discovered ft
chemical agent by which straw can be converted into
pulp, and made available for printing paper I After
vainly trying to get Paper manufacturers to make use
of tbis discovery, Mr. Brown was informed of it and
being convinced of its immense value, became a partner, nnd patented it in England, France, the United
States, and in Canada. Mr. Brown has recently visited
New York about the matter. He was met by a number
of American Capitalists—prominent among whom
was Cyrus W. Field, of Atlantic Telegrnpn notoriety—
and it is said an arrangement has been effected by
which Messrs. Brown and Clemo are to receive some
$800,000.
When the Rev. Henry Grattnn Guinness was lately
in Philadelphia, a young lady ' of wealth and position' made him an offer of her hand, heart, and purse
The minister replied—' I came to America not to
seek a wife but to preach the Gospel. Your note
strikes me as much out of place, and my advice to
you is that you give the money which you seem willing to bestow on me to the poor, your heart to the
Lord, and your hand to the first gentleman that asks
for it.'
Love Will Find out the Way.—There is a Cockney
youth, who, every time he wishes to get a glimpse of
his sweet-heart, cries ' Fire !'directly under her window. In thc alarm of the moment she plunges her
head out ofthe window, enquires ' Where'.'' when he
poetically slaps himself on the bosom and exclaims,—
' 'Ere my Hangelina, 'ere in my 'art.'
The following is an alarming evidence of tlie photographic art:—A lady last week, had her likeness taken
by a photographist ; and he executed it so well, that
her husbnnd prefers it to thc original.
A country parson had a singular peculiarity of expression, always using tie phrase ' I flatter myself,'
instead of ' I believe.' Having had occasion to exhort
his congregation during a revival, ' he flattered himself that more than one-half of them would be damned !'
Whfn F.rskine was in full tide of success as a barrister some of his fallow lawyers, wishing to annoy him,
hired a boy to nsk him, as he was going into court
with his green bag stuffed with biiefs, if he had anv
old clothes for sale. ' No, you young rascal !' said
Brskine : these are all new suits.'
'Hallo I I say, what did you say yonr medicine
would cure?' ' O, it will cure everything—heal everything.' 'Well, I'll take a bottle ; maybe it'll heel my
boots—they need it bad enough.'
Queer Game.—' I say, my friend.'is there anything to
shoot about here? ' enquired a sportsman in Kentucky
of a boy he met. ' Wal,' was the reply, 'nothing jest
about here, but the school-master is down the hill yonder—you can pop him over.'

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