The Persia has arrived with Liverpool dates to the

Austria is reported to have raised another difficulty
regarding the European Congress, and the invitations
to various powers were in abeyance. The regency
question, it is said, causes Iho difficulty. Lord Cowley
is reported lu have boon authorized by Napoleon to
propose to England a general and simultaneous disarmament.
The London journals treat the idea as absurd. Lord
Cowley was, however, in London.
The English army will be increased by additional
battalions equivalent tu 11 new regiments.
The Paris Bourse was reported linn at "of. 20c.
Thc French journals have been instructed to encourage iho idea nf a general disarmament.
Italian affairs are unchanged.
The Sardinian Government has issued a circular do-
feuding its course regarding the Regency of Central

China.—Bis Excellency the American .Minister nrri-
fved at Shanghai on the 22nd of August, after visiting
11'i-kin. when-, however, tho Mission appears to have
been all but prisoners. Personal communication with
[the Russians was denied them, and some of their corres-

The t'Ama   Mail gives n  detailed account  of Sir.
[■Ward's visit to Pekin, from which we extract the  folding:—
"About 11 o'clock next day, Sir. Ward, attended by
i only three of his party, went to the public hall, where
jibe Imperial commissioners' met him, surrounded by a
[jreat crowd of officials of every shade of button, all
iresscd in their easy summer costume. Kweiliang look-
■d more hale than when at Shanghai; and said that his
■journey of 30 dnys had been on tho whole pleasant.
: He soon began, however, upon weightier matters, and
vindicated iho late acts uf his Government in respect of
its plans fur the exchange uf thc three treaties. He
then proceeded to state that as the Emperor had a regard for lhc Americans, he wished In do them honor by
Granting them an audience, and it only remained fur the
parties then present to settle upon the manner of np-
laching tlie throne. Without going into any need-
s details upon  the   interesting  conversations  which
I ensued un this topic, at this and subsequent interviews,
ii will be better to recapitulate tho main arguments used
iy the Chinese functionaries in explaining and urging
their views, as these show more clearly the real nature
bf the ceremony n<cd ai tho Chinese Court. The diff'e-
I'l'iil estimation iu which the Emperor regarded a friendly
und equal nation like Hie United States,' Whose chief
Magistrate was iu every respect equal to himself,
Irom tributary nations like Sinm, Corea, Lewchcw, or
JiVnnam, was repeatedly referred to by Kweiliang. lie

Chinese as a preliminary to his audience of their Sove-

thentic ease of restoration of the human hair is worthy
of observation, more particularly as tt relates to an article of high and universal repute during the lust half
century. Mr. A. Herrmann, of Queen street, Soho, had
been quite bnld for some time past, and had tried var1-
ous preparations for the recovery of his hair, but without any beneficial result. He was then induoed to try
the clfocts of " Rowlands' Macassar Oil;" and after
daily applying it for nbout two months, he, much to
his gratification, had his hair quite restored, nnd now
possesses a beautiful head of hair. This fact speaks
loo strongly for itself to require comment,—Bell's Weekly Messenger.

nnd nre charged colonial postage on all letters leaving
the colony, but have to pay nothing for letters arriving
in it, which appears to  us as rather weak legislation
Supposing the expresses were to pay 10 cents on letters and 2 cents on papers leaving and arriving, it would
raise the revenue to nearly double, or making duo allowance for the small amount of papers curried by the
companies, £123 per month, this would give a yearly-
revenue of £1,500. To this must be added the proceeds
of the now private boxes, which■ would raise it to £1530.
The expenses ofthe department, cannot at the outside,
exceed £000 per annum, and a surplus would thus be
left of £950, which might be devoted either to-the general purposes ofthe Colony, or to-become, (as we think
would be far better) the nucleus ofa sum to be devoted
lo tho encouragement of a mail, service between this
and San Francisco. Supposing we have (there is a

and were to raise the postage to 25 cents for a time (as
has been proposed) the clear profit to the department
would he £2,500 per annum, a respectable sum. No
matter to what purposo Iho surplus proceeds of this department are devoted, it is the duly of Government to
obtain all the revenue from it possible; und the only
way In make il speedily effective, is In make it capable
of supporting itself and tho country, in the true sense
of the word.
Iu these few remarks, we have only taken thc statistics of the colony as it is, but in the event of its bccom-l

such figures would vanish, and bo supplied, we trust,
by others which would enable the government to lower

Tin; appcaruiico of an advertisement, in our
issue of Wednesday, calling for Tenders from
those desirous of oBnlji'ticting for .currying out
certain improvements necessary to render
the Harrison river nrtvigfiblo for small Stcam-
ors, such as the "Col. .Moody" and "Gdvernor
Douglas," appears to havo given some dissatisfaction, and tho Colonist yesterday, has an
article upon the subject, in which various insinuations arc thrown out, which arc not, by
any means called for. The British Columbian
Steam Navigation Company, some'timo since,
made proposals to the (iovonimcnt to carry
out the required improvements, which -would
open out. the Navigation so as to enable
Steamers to reach Porl Douglas at all seasons
of fcho year, the Company guaranteeing to convey freight, from Victoria to Port Douglas and
Fort Hope, lor twenty-five dollars a ton, and
carry out certain other most advantageous
arrangements, Considering the circumstance
that freight lias hitherto rarely been taken
up the Fi'iizer river at a less rate than §70 or]
§75, thc terms proposed by the alcove-mentioned Company appear to be very lair. The Government, however, are desirous of receiving
tenders, with a view of ascertaining whether
any other parties can undertake the works,
required, upon more advantageous terms to ilie
public, and by so troiiig appears to have called
down the indignation of the Colonist, which cha-'
ractorizes this straightforward proceeding as
"another job." We are abovo all things del
siroiis that none but tlie most liberal measures
should bo adopted with regard to the river
navigation iu llrilisli Columbia, and therefore
as there appears lo be some difference of opin-j
in as tii the desirability of accepting thc jm*< -
posal of tho , Company, we refrain from recording our ideas un i ho subject, with a view
to giving further timo for tho expression o*'
public sentiment.
Assay Offioe.—We are informed that the assay office
will be  established at Now Westminster, and thataj
fire proof building will in all probability be shortly
erected for this department.

tion of Harrison River,  so  that Steamers  may reach
Port Douglas at all seasons ofthe year,  and the Company will guarentee to convey Freight from Victoria  to |
Port Douglas, and Fort Hope, at a rate not exceeding
§25 a ton, upon  condition of the Government paying
to the Company, for a certain period all tolls that may ,
be levied on Steam Vessels  to reimburse  the  outlay.!
We notice in our columns of to day, no advertisement
for tenders for the work in question, and soweprcsume
tlio Government has not closed with the offer made,!
and perhaps, wisely so, although we trust,   it  will not)
bo hastily refused, for with past experience  before  our
eyes ofthe evil effects of undue combination, by which
competition is rendered inoperative, and the country, in
the end   impoverished,  the certainty of providing a
c leap rale of transport us far as Douglas and Hope, is a
matter not to bo lightly dealt with.

Sir,—The recent proclamation granting the privilege
of pre-empting land, has mot wilh n gnu ! reception,
nnd ill it wants, in my opinion, is that the price of land
should be fixed, nt one dollar an acre. If this be dune,

better than that in Washington Territory or Oregon,
ivhich can be had for one dollar an acre.

It is a conceded fact on all hands that Itevcnuc is

be made practicable by any people is by combining
comfort-with the necessary evil ns. much as possible;,
or in oilier words, giving an equivalent for thc nioncv

great question of taxation, il is obviously ihe duty ol
Govornmont to neglect no object, however small that
may contribute lu ihe grout cud iu view. Anion .;
other things, wo think thu Post office might bo mado
the source of a much larger Revenue than il. i^ at
present. Tho rale uf colonial postage is comparatively
low. Five cents is u coin thnt is uot easily attainable.
Why not,, therefore, nt once raise the rate of pi , ig .
and see that il is iu nu instance avoided. As nearly
as wo can gather, tiie statistics nro as follows:—About
2200 letters arrive here every month un an average,
with 2000 newspapers. And about 1400 letters, with
about 000 newspapers are despatched. On every letter
o cents colonial postage is paid, whether it is received
or sent away, and 1 cent ou every newspaper. Raise
the rate to 10 cents (which even hero is loss than the
price of a drink) on letters, and 2 cents on papers and
allowing for letters free nnd unclaimed, wo have a
monthly revenue uf illi'l. To this must be added tho
postage on letters dropped, and taking them at thc law
average of 100 per month, wo should make tho monthly
revenue £05. Now, tbe expresses carry, we imagine,

llo then put it into his pocket.
Sir. Wight who appeared for the defence, upon eross
examination, elicited from Tudd, that Boyce asked him
tor twenty five cents tn niuke up the difference between
S7,7 5 at which he valued tho dust. A scuille eusued
to recover the weight, which was resisted by the miners.
Boyce offered to return any deficiency if they would try
it with the half ounce nnd grain weights.
Peter McDonald proved that ho objected to the weight,
and that Boyce was anxious to settle the matter, not
wishing his character to be brought in question, as he
only acted for another. Sir. McLougblan, the Purser of
the Col. Sloody, had assisted Mr. Stark, the regular
Purser of the Eliza Anderson, and used the leaden
weights, one representing SO, and the other S8.
The defence proved, that this was the first trip of
Sir. Boyce, and that the weight, wa.s handed In him us a
representative of the sum of $8, to avoid t! o use of the
smaller weight, and that he was ignorant uf the fact
that it was false.
Thc jury retired for consultation,.and returned a verdict of Nut Guilty, the accused having nu knowledaffl
that the weight was false. Thejury also stated throiijPI

.Mexico, with news to the effect that the famous ultimatum treaty of Sir. Ministor SloLunc, had been duly
ratified and signed at Vera Cruz. By its provisions, as
our readers are already aware, the U. S. Government
espouses the cause of the liberal party, and obtains
thereby its cordial co-opcrution in carrying out the
terms of the treaty, ft is agreed Hint Mexico shall
cede to the United States the right of way over the
Tehuantcpec, route nnd certain lands on either side,
free of all costs ; also Lower California ; a portion of
Sonora, as a foothold for the protection of American
interests in thai quarter; also, the right of our Government to introduce troops into thoir country, nt,
their option. The sum of Si0,000,000 is to bo paid by
tho United Slates, a groat portion of which is to be
retained for the purpose of satisfying claims, and to
as inter-1 provide munition for the use of such citizens ns shall
' enrol themselves in the army of the Liberal party, in
accordance with their pronnnciamontos. The news of
the signing of thc treaty caused great rejoicing among
Iho Juarez adherents throughout the country.
The courier also brought news of the imprisonment
at the city of Mexico, of Genornl Marquoz, for tho murder of Ormond Chase, of Maine, who was killed whilst
defending the person of the British Consul nt Topic.
There seems from reports by the overland mail to be
still some doubts as to thc final signing of the treaty

II seems unreasonable also to require such unlimited
continued occupation, where the government sureij
may bo sn long delayed. Imperative reusnns mny compel a claimant In leave his claim, idler having improved
and occupied it for years. On this head, too, there seems
no provision fur the case uf a person who, having recorded u claim, and  improved it to the extent of say i
shillings per acre, dies witlmnl heirs present lu complete
his occupation and improvement. W ho is to havo mo
