His Excellency the Governor was
looked forward to with more interest than addresses of
that description usually are; inasmuch ns it wns thc
Inauguration of our civil liberties in this Island, lt
commences with a congratulation on our commercial
prospects, and then slightly touches upon the Snn Junn
difficulty; nnd we nre glut? to learn that the conduct of
both Governments Is still conciliator]*, and such as to
hold out n hope of an amicable adjustment of the af-
fajr. ll then announced the necessity of providing
ways i-.ii-l NMMts to "ie<i ihe espensos of Govcr.iiiicr.i.
as lhc Hudson Buy Company has ccasod to be liable for
them. The great doctrine of the Home Government
was distinctly enunciated, that this Colony, like all
others of the liritish Crown, must be self-supporting,
It is, therefore, idle for us in future to look for nny monetary help from home, and we musl make our way
in tlio world by our own unaided exertion.*. For this
we must be contented to be taxed, nud no fair nud just
imposition will be grumbled at by tbe people ; but their
representative!, have a great responsibility ou their
shoulders.   We hope they will discharge il faithfully.
Wo almost think that, ou the whole, il Is well for us
at once to learn self-reliance, ami not become enervated
by constant dependence on subsidies from without.
The amount of our official salaries is left to our own
discretion', but it is wisely recommended that the salaries of Governor, Chief-Justice, and other chief offi-
eers of the Government, be fixed by law, nml not
placed on the annual estimates. A revision ofthe existing colonial laws was recommended, and a selection
from the Statute Laws of England, of such ub would
apply to this colony, advised. The address enlarged
most, properly on the benefits of schools, nml we perfectly ngree with His Excellency, Hint the salaries o
Teachers should be raised. Thc education of youth is,
without any exception, the most Important and responsible ollice that man can uspirelo. It should also be
imiilc the most honorable. A right step in this direction will be taken by giving our public schoolmasters
salaries such as will tempt an cllicieut, and high order
of men to fill those positions. We simply repeat, a
truism when wo say that tho schoolmaster has more in-
fllienco on society than any man ; for he. it is who forms
the minds thai govorn men.
Tho encouragement of immigration was earnestly
commended to the attention ofthe House, und we hope
that it will bo tine oftho first subjects to engage its attention. A liberal Inml system, wu are happy lo say,
was supported, and the Island nt large congratulated
on its enjoyment of the principles of free trade. We
iiru itgreeiilily surprised to hear that, n proposal will, in
a short time, bo laid before the House, from Capt.
Stamp, tbe representative of nn influential company, to
form settlements at some eligible point on llio west
coast of tho Island, for the establishment of fisheries
and export of deals and ships' spurs. This proposal
will, we have no doubt, receive favorable consideration. It is willi no ordinary feelings of pleasure that
WO contemplate the probable founding of such an establishment, here. Our const and forests arc abounding with iish and timber of grout value, nnd the sooner
an exportation of them, on a proper scale, is begun, the
better for the colony. His Excellency drew thc House's
attention to the importance ofthe question.
The Address concluded with a fervent prayer that,
the, blessings of tlio Almighty mny rest on the proceedings of thc Houso.
The stylo oftho Address was distinguished by groat
simplicity and clearness, and  waj(  delivered in a dis

'Shy, Speech ofthe Governor ofa Colony is
sen orally considered an iiuiiortatii ilocttmcnl
but the speech of Governor JJouglas, th-li-
vered lo the House of Asst-inlily on tho 1 st of
March, must not only bo considered an important, but most able one. Full of forethought,
indicating tho most deliberate and well-directed study, foreshadowing a courso of policy
which must, if bin Excellency bo supported
byiho mombors of tho houso, inaugurate a
now era in our History, and open nut u field
of employment for all classes of the colonists-
Even the political opponents of tho Governor are forced to admit the ability ami lilio-
rality which arc displayed throughout bi>
speech. Wo go further, and assort that it is
worthy of being placed in the important
position of a progressive guide, not
only to these colonies, but to oU'ier Governors, organizing new colonies ol Britain,

ilieir rrpli t i Ilis Excellency's speech.
The coiniiiittcu appointed to report on the Members-'
Disabilities question, decided thnt the outh of nllegiance
along with Hium., contnined in the Franchise Act, alone
wire necessary. The House adopted the report. Mr.
Fraiiklin. consequently, takes his- rent again.
Mr. Waiiiunutox gavenotico that he would introduce
n bill in rngiilate llie manufacture, carriage, deposit,
and snle of gunpowder in llie Town  of Victoria.
Mr. MuUoxali) gave notice of n bill having reference
to the construction of chimneys iu thc Town of Victoria.
Mr. AVadointitos moved that the House bud reason
lo believe that n gross attempt bud been made by
Chii I .lu.-l.iee Cameron, to smuggle Mr. Selim Franklin
into tin: .House, by administering to him a faulty
oath — an tuiili which was not in accord-mice
with ihe sttilute—that such condttcl wns unbecoming n
i 'iii'-f .lii-ii' c, ntnl llnil n commit Ice of lhc be appointed
lo enquire into Ihe manner in which the first oath was
administered, and report to the House according to the
facts, lb; considered that a gross error committed by
n. Supreme Judge, on such n subject as tlii-\ was worthy
of Hie severe?! censure, nnd Unit it wns due to the dig-
uilyof the llouse to have lhc matter thoroughly explained.
Mr. Cni.i: • seconded the motion.
Major Foster distinctly dissented from the expressions contained in the motion which lind just been laid
before the House. With regard to Judge Cameron, he
considered ilia] ih" Attorne/rleiienil gave the House
sullicient information to prove that there wns neither
participation nor connivance ou tho purl of the •v-u-
premc Judge, iu the matter, lie believed the Chief
Jusiiee took a legal view of tin: ease ami acted on that
view, and thai he (Judge Cameron) was convinced lie
was right in administering tho oath be did. lie (Major
Foster) thought thai the members ot llie llouse must
In; fully aware of the high character borne by Judge
Cameron, (hear, hear) and that it was highly censurable
in muko use of such unbecoming expressions ns were
used iu Ihe motion, (hear, bear.) Tliere was no
reason in make such exaggerated statements. He, however, believed if Mr. Franklin bad come forward ami
Staled bis objection to the ordinary form of oath, it
would have been more becoming that gentleman, lie
would propose as an amendment simply that a committee of live be appointed to enquire bow the faulty
form of oath was laid before Mr. Franklin, and report
in ibis House accordingly.
Mr. Gordon seconded the amendment, nnd said that
lhc motion before llie House mighl be divided into two
lie.ids. It begun—" Whereas this lhuii-c bus reason to
bolievc Hint a gross attempt has been made.'' He did
mil sec how nny one could say so. No gentlemen h ul
a right lo so pre-judgc the feelings or opinions of this
House. Thero wns a singularity about tlie wording of
Hit; motion also that made it very peculiar. Il commenced wilh the. I'n-l person singular and glided iuto
Ihe lirsl person plural. (Laughter.) If a motion is to
lm [nit before the House on ibis Bubjcct' let it bo done
properly, and not, ns be bud already said, prc-judging
llie sentiments of tho House. In fact, judging from
lhc manner in which Iho hon. member expressed the
million, one might be inclined to believe that it proceeded from outsiders. It was unfortunately the curse
of liiis colony that every mini's motives and purposes
were suspected ; lie. therefore, thought it was llie mure
necessary that the House of Assembly should set un
example to the country in this respect, (hear, hear.)
The liiii-riinge of tbe motion he considered extremely
unbecoming, and be would, therefore, second the
Mr. Crease considered that no person could desire
iiiJil}'C.s!igation into the matter inure than Judge Cameron himself,
Mr. Waddishtoh withdrew his motion, staling that,
under llie excitement ol the question, be bad made
use of ruthor warm expressions, which might bo considered unwarrantable.
flic amendment, then becoming tbe motion, was
carried, nnd Messrs. Gordon, Coles, Crease, Foster, and
McDonald, were appointed the committee.
Mr. Cary moved that all documents and papers connected with the financial affairs of the colony should
be laid before the. llouse, as without them nothing
could be done.
Mr. Crease gave notice of motion that tbe election
uf officers should take place at the next meeting of
the House.
Cnpt. Cooper gave   notice   of n   motion   lo   decide,
what number61 members should forma quorum.
The ll'io-e then adjourned till 3 o'clock on Monday.

whole affair wns conducted, which not only throws
great credit on thc Scotchmen ol Victoria, but also on
their guests, who so warmly co-operated in commemorating the birth of Scotia's Hard, llie immortal Burns.
The meeting of Scotchmen at thi-; festival, was instrumental in forming the St. Andrews Benevolent Society
of Victoria, worthy of all praise.
Anothbh Whatcom Hoax.—We have heard that it is
contemplated to get up an excitement wilh regard lo
the position of Seattle us a starting place for the Si-
milkumecn mines. Several persons, some of whom arrived by the Inst steamer from Sau Francisco, have a
speculation on foot to build up a town on I'uget Sound.
In the event of a rush from San Francisco to the above
mines, these speculators would, no doubt, make It good
thing of it; but we should think the experience of the
Whatcom sufferers will prevent the public from being
gulled again, lt is absurd to suppose that Seattle, or
any oilier place on the coast, will be able to compete
(should the Siinilknmcen mines turn out trumps) with
Fort Hope. If half the capital on the l'aeilic const was
employed, it would not be able to divert the course of
traffic to these regions. The distance from Fort Hope,
by the Brigade trail, to Camp de Femme, is about 00
miles; thence to tbe Siinilkanieeu river about 30 miles.
Important Request.—It appears that, upon the arrest of n person for debt, on Monday last, by the Slier-
ill's clerk, the publisher of llie British Colonist sent for
" particulars of tho debt," and wns very properly refused. We shall have this individual next inquiring
what each individual resident of Victoria jail has had
for dinner. In criminal cases, tbe press have certain
privileges; but the request alluded to is about tlie
coolest we ever beard of. The idea of the Colonist designating another man ns a bear!!!

Mile Tax Meetixo.—A largo nud respectably attended meeting took place on Monday evening, ut half-
past T I', si., to consider the adoption of resolutions
upon the sulijt-ct, of the Muln Tax. The suggestions
repeatedly made in Ibis journal, regarding a respectful
address upou the subject to His Excellency the Governor^ were adopted, and the loan question,
after some discussion approved of. We have no
doubt beneficial results will follow upon lhc labors of
tho proposers of tlio resolutions passed by the meeting.
FrenchBexbvolent Society.—The French residents
in this Town, who, like Frenclnnent in all foreign
countries, form an orderly, industrious, und highly
respectable body, have established a mutual relief
Society in this Colony. The public should encourngo
and support all sin-li useful and charitable, institutions,
for they do an incalculable amount of good in all communities.
Deputation oe CnixKSH Inhabitants.—Vie. "Wight
and Mr, Pcarkes introduced to his Excellency the Governor Mr. Quotig Let: nnd other Chinese gentlemen, who
were desirous of having an interview with lhc Governor upon the subject ofthe proposed tax ou Chinamen.

suggested Unit be should be happy lc receive a loan,

Sin.—Liberal ideas flourish in Great Britain, they
nlighten America, and Ihey are nationalized in France;
nnd this mny be called the tripod whence issues the
light of the world. Liberal opinions will rule the Cui-
verse. Tbey will become tho Faith, the Religion, the
Morality of all nations in spile of nil that mny
be advanced to tho contrary. Do wc carry liberality,  if we distranchisc the Jew?
Bending the liberal views of English Statesmen  and
lawyers of llie present day,  with  regard  to  governing  i
young colonies, we find the following language:—
We wish to establish universal liberty of conscience,
perfect liberty of speech nud thought. To make nil

these advantages of rii It diggings are almost more tin j
counterbalanced by the price of transport in the LieAtr

in reality, one may not be far from the truth in bajbc
that at the end ofthe year's work, the four dollar liti |

One of the gn ntest evils contingent to the formntiM|

and the California miner in particular.- The retuntsofI

mid 11 the miner individually, would be tenfold what it I
i- but for this. A miner settles to work at 4 oriido!-!

old claim, it lia-- been tnki n up, or the mining seas-*!

a bad character, curses thc taxes, idles, drinks,mil
Otherwise abuses himself and the country, lki!
different hnd he remained for the si a on at the sceneofl

Review or INH), criticising illiberally, the public_Education system. Vou will see the tlilference of views in
1800 on the same subject, and probably by the same
Review. Comment is'needless. Illiberal views of conscience, or anything else, nre not for tlio Ago of Progress.    Onward- forward.
T. E.
Those who have watched the workings of Public
Schools, long and close at hand, are inclined to attribute much of that uselessnpss and discontent which is
one, ofthe most striking features, nml which is the despair both to the friends of order and the friends of
Freedom, to tho National system of Education. Members of various grades and classes in the social scale
are instructed together in thu same Behoofs, in the
same mode, and ou the same subject, to a degree of
which, we have no example here.
If tho peasant, tho grocer, or the tailor, can scrape
together a little money, his son receives his trniulng in
the Piimo Seminary as the son ofthe proprietor whose
hind he cultivates, whose sugar and coffee lie supplies,
and whose coat he, liiukci.
The boy who ought to be, a laborer or petty tradesman
sils ou the same bench, and learns llie siime, lesson, us
thc boy who is destined for tho bar, Ihe tribune, or Uncivil servicoof the state. This system arises out of Ihe
passion for Equality, and fosters it in turn. The result
is that ench one naturally learns to despise his own
destination, and to aspire to that of his fortunate
schoolfellow. The grocer's son cannot see why he
should not become an advocate, a journalist, or n
statesman, ns well ns the wealthier and nobler born lad
who was often below him in the class, whom ho occasionally threshed, and often helped over the thorny
places of his daily.jtask.

Tin: Lath Loim IIastixcs.—The great county event
in Norfolk during the past week has been tho death of
Lord Hastings, lu The Times of Thursday particulars
of the usual character appeared with reference to the
family, kc, of the noble lord, but some details from a
local print will probably be interesting. As Sir Jacob
Astley, his Lordship was returned for West Norfolk in
the first reformed Parliament, in conjunction with Sir
William Folkes, ofUillington, near Lynn; and be was
re-elected in 1SH5, in conjunction with the same lion,
baronet, although a spirited opposition was offered hy
Mr. W. liagge, who polled 1.880 Voles, while for Sir Jacob upwards of 2,100 were recorded. On the dissolution which followed the accession of Her Majesty, in
1K:s7, Mr. Bagge again came forward, in conjunction
with Mr. W. L. W. Chute, and this time the Conservatives, who had recovered the position in tho agricultural districts which they had Inst on iho passing of the
Reform Bill, were returned, llie polling concluded ns
follows:—Bagge, 3,178) Chute, 2,887 ; Folkes 2,838;
\stlcy. 2713. Sir Jacob Astley, who attributed this
result in uiipuiTullod "intimidation, coercion, and bribery," did not mako any attempt to rc-enie.- lh-- House
ofCommons, being in 1841 called to ihe Houso of
Peers, on the revival of the barony of Hastings, created iu the reign of Edward I. Tho Astley family have
for centuries played a leading part in Norfolk politics.
Thus, Sir James Ashley was returned for Ihe c'ounty in
1672 and 1678 ; Sir Jacob Ashley 1681, 1680, 1605,1608,
1700, I7D2, 1710, and 1713 ; Sir Edward Aside;, in 1768,
1774, 1780, and 1781; and (Sir Jacob Henry Ashley
(who died in 1817) in 1707, 1802, 1807, and 1812. Several amusing anecdotes arc related of adventures in
which the lute lord involved himself. On one occasion
he was holly engaged in thc pursuit of a "verniint"
when the progress of himself and his friends was barred
by a gate, guarded by n sturdy farmer, '-Open the
gate I" was the lordly command., "I shan't," replied
the fanner. Open tlie gate, I tell you!" repealed his
lordship. "Shan't" retorted Agricola, as doggedly ns
ever. "Ifyou don't" exclaimed thc noble lord, "I'll
Iny this whip about yon." "So will I my stick," responded his iimliiniitcd opponent. Without f'urthei
parley at it they went, no quarter being given on either
side. If one had the pen of a Washington Irving the
combat might he narrated, no doubt, in terms as laughter-moving as those in which Ihat lamented author linn
chronicled tho iniinorlul und fearless exploits of Peter
Sliiyvesanl ; but in the present case it must Biillice to
say that, after sundry hard whacks had been given and
taken, the opposing parlie^ drew off with n tolerably
good opinion of each other's prowess. Next day the
peer sent for the farmer, who boldly entered his presence. " Well," said my lord, ■• I didn't much like
what you gave nm yesterday." Didn't intend you
should" was the reply. More talk followed; but the
reader will hardly anticipate tho result—viz., tho appointment of the man of llie laud In u post of trust on
his lordship's estate—nr. net which certainly showed
considerable magnanimity. On a nol her occasion, about
three years since, Lord Hastings committed some men
for Inking rahhils on n piece of land near Holt, on
which it was contended the pnrlics had corlain rights.
Some of the papers, nnd moro particularly the Norfolk
News, took the matter up, and nn article appearing
which his lordship considered personally offensive, ho
proceeded lo the ollice of thc local journal with tho
wicw of inflicting condign punishment on the editor,
who is at present Mayor of Norwich. High words ensued, nnd al, last lord Hustings exclaimed, " Why don't,
you light, man? at the same time holding up a redoubtable whip in a threatening manner. " Fight," returned the editor, producing some silver; " why I could
get n man easily enough to thrash you for these two
half-crowns." An indictment was for ibis affair preferred ngainsl, the noble lord at thc Norfolk assizes,
but Ihe hearing of the case was postponed, and eventually the matter was hushed up in a Pickwickian
kind of fashion.
Un. Livingstone's Birkenhead steam launch having
proved ii. failure, lm lias sent home orders for thc construction of another, at nn estimated cost of £2,000.
This i-tisl Dr. Livingstone proposes to defray out of
his own pocket, from lhc menus set aside for his
children out of live profits of bis travels. "The edit
drcn musl, makeitup for themselves," was in effect his
expression in making tho order for appropriation of the
Tun freight list oftho Grand Trunk Railroad,  a few
days since, contained, among other items   of  irieroluin-
iso for Portland, L3,000 bbls of Hour, and from Cairo
1,700 bales of cotton. Wo learn Ihnl it is conleninlaled
by the western railroads to establish on the. Mississippi
