Tins week has been a marked  one in France; we
re witnessed a triumph, read nn  Imperial speech.
rd the news of an amnesty.   A million  of persons
c, it is said, visited Paris, to attend  on the entry of
army of Italy, and that army nnd its chief have been
cived with the hearty acclamations of the vast crowd
spectators.    It is wise to be bold on such occasions,
I lin- Emperor has ventured to make the most proin-
nt part of the exhibition a procession of the wounded.
c people of France have seen, as distinctly as it was
sible to put it before them, the price  of suffering
d for the Italian victories.   They were deeply moved,
who would not be?    lint they made their sympathy
|1\ a part of their  homage  to the: occasion.    There

Was it tlie war lust revived in France, and revel-
in the old enjoyment?   Was it tlie announcement
t France craves war as a condition of its greatness,
in the spirit of the Government writer, M. Granier
issognac, hopes for future opportunities of repeat-
ucli scenes?   If so, Europe would have an implac-
,e sore in its very centre, a standing defiance to tlie
nils and threat to the happiness of mankind.    But
do not believe in anything so fatal.    Wc know that
almost animal enthusiasm of to-day is not the con-
ion of the morrow.    It is impossible that those who
capable of thought should not ask tliemselve3 the
stion, what has all this achieved?    What wrong is
nged?   What  right is established?     One  of our
temporaries   insist &   that   the   cry which  was most
rd, and which was reported by its correspondent as
ive la ligne," was in fact l; Vivo 1' Italic."   Any one
tistomed to the French language will know that the
ml would be almost the same in a shout.   If we
believe such a fact or trust in the feeling, France

them with weapons.    One correspondent of the Daily
Xr.ics  offers  £50  as  his  .subscription.    As lovers of
pence and right, wc applaud  the gift.    Now, or never,
freedom must frown down tyranny—strike  it down, if
need lie—or perish itself.    The Conferences at Zurich
languish.    It is said that even on the question of the
frontiers of Loin hardy, and yet more on her assumption
■ of pari of the Austrian debt, the, diplomatists can come
! to no terms.   The truce is prolonged till a peace is set-
' tied.    The contest new on  the pari of the Italians is
1 one of patience and abstinence from all Hint may compromise their cause.    The vile falsehood as to the Rc-
' publican revolution in Parma is utterly exposed, pub-
: liciy denounced by the Mayor of Parma in Paris.    In
'■■ (his eventful and anxious pause, all will rejoice to hear
, that our Government is doing its duty.    We have not
[worked to throw out Lord  Derby for nothing.    "In*
formation has reached me from a good quarter," says
the Times correspondent in  Paris, "that the  British
Government has manifested a very decided opinion on
the subject, and desires that the Italians should lie left
I at liberty to settle their own affairs as best suits them,''
; and that they should not be constrained to receive back
I their runaway Princes.   In this case, it is added, "Na-
' poleon will  find   powerful   support   should   Francis
! Joseph show himself tenacious with respect to tlie con-
i ditions on which he is said to have tho most Btrongly
insisted  at Villafranca."    Here  stays tlie  history of

jnan being. Tlie English in Paris were ns ardent in

that his troops are to be allowed to return to

threo hundred chiefs assembled around him, on
lorating them with the medal of Italy, to the nvoca-
ns of peace.    Wc do not dwell upon this as positive

I which it would be, perhaps, more costly to him

h that of his late antagonist, we find Austria, still
h.some 200,000 men in Italy, avowedly reorganizing
iirniy, nnd preparing, as far as its most bigoted and
jiupetcitt government can find the wit to do it, against
recurrence of such defeats as it has sustained.
Iging Continental nations by their fellows, we could
ask more from France than Napoleon offers. Tho
■ sentence of the speech that can be construed into
Iarning to other Powers, is this: "If France has

Cayenne return in virtue of it, that, with the abo-

of March last, on the high seas, assaulted and imprisoned, and kept imprisoned for 'M days, Benjamin
Vacuna Mackenua, Angel C'ustodio Gullo, .Manuel Antonio Matta, and Guillelmo Matta.
Mr. Uliss, Q.C., Attorney-General for the County Palatine, and Mr. Aspinwall, were counsel for the prosecution ; Mr. Ovcrend, Q.C., and Mr. Deigliton for the
From the statement of the Attorney-General, it appeared" that, the defendant" "was"master ttnd~T/nri=Owrrer
of tlie British ship Louisa Braginton, and In March last,
was with his ship in the Hay ot Valparaiso, in the Republic of Chili. Tlie prosecutors were gentlemen of
good position in their own country, two of thorn being
members of the Houso of Representatives there, and
the other two editors of a newspaper published at Santiago, in Chili. In December last there were some political differences between the Government of Chili and
the inhabitants. A general meeting took place at Santiago on 12th of that month, at which meeting these four
gentlemen were present. The persons attending that
meeting were surrounded by Government troops, and
these four gentlemen, with others, were taken into custody and conveyed to prison. There the four prosecutors remained till the 8th of March, when they were
removed to Valparaiso, and then immediately conveyed
in an armed boat on board defendant's ship, which was
lying about a mile from tho wharf.    The defendant re-
eoivotl tliwi,   iui.1   lout tliiira   into., the cabin.      In three
hours tlie ship sailed, being towed the first 12 miles by
a Chilian wav-steanicr. The crew consisted of 13, Tho

he had entered into a contract with the Chilian Government 'o convey tlie four prosecutors to England. There
they were accordingly conveyed nnd allowed to land
at Liverpool on the ship's arrival there on the 15th
June. They immediately had the captain summoned
before tlie stipendiary magistrate, bul that gentleman
very promptly declined to adjudicate on the matter,
nnil bound the defendant over to appear at the assizes.
The prosecutors were treated liko gentlemen, but it
wns evident bad they attempted to escape violence
would have been used towards them.
Mr. Bnrou Watson, al the conclusion of the learned
counsel's address, said that he should not take upon
himself to decide upon the law of the case, and should
reserve that for the Court of Criminal Appeal.
The depositions of Mackenua and of one of the crew
of the vessel wore then read over to uVm, and the fads
therein mentioned again sworn by them lo be true.
The written contract between tho defendant and the
Chilian Government was also put in, by which it appeared that the defendant wns to receive $3,000 (equal
to XUOO) on procuring tlie certificate of the Chilian
Consul in Liverpool that tho prosecutors had been
landed there. The usual passage money would have
been £-10 a piece.
The jury then, under his Lordship's direction, found
the prisoner Guilty, aud he and n surely entered into il
recognizance to appear and receive judgment when
called ou, nftcr the Court of Criminal Appeal should
have decided whether the Indictment was sustainable.

In a cold night of November, in tho year 1825, n
man, cnvcicrpcd*iir-it-e!oi\k, rapped at P..e door• fn one
of tho most distinguished advocates of Paris, now
President of the French National Assembly. He wns
quickly shown into the room of tho learned lawyer.
" Sir," said he, placing on tho table a large parcel of
papers, " I am rich ; but the suit that 1ms been Instituted against me to-day will certainly ruin me. At my
ago a fortune is not to be rebuilt, so that the loss of my
suit will condemn me for ever to the most frightful
misery. 1 come to ask the aid of your talents. Here
aro the papers as to the facts ; 1 will, if you please, explain them clearly to you."
The advocate listened attentively to the stranger;
then opened the parcel, examined all the papers it contained, and said, " Sir, the action brought, against you
is founded in justice and morality. Unfortunately, in
spite of the admirable perfection of our codes, law docs
not always accord with justice, nnd here the law is in
Tour"'favor.''"il', therefore, you- rest Strictly upon the
law, and avail yon-self without'exception of all the
points in your favor; if, above, all, these points arc expressed with clearuoss and force, you will infallibly
gain this suit, and nobody can afterwards dispute that
fortune which you fear to lose."
"Nobody in the world," replied tho client, "is so
competent to do this as yourself. An opinion drawn
up to this effect, and signed by you would render me
invulnerable ; I am bold to hope that you will not refuse it to me."
The skilful advocate reflected for somo moments, nnd
taking up again the papers which he had pushed ftway
with an abruptness peculiar to him, said he would
draw up tho opinion, and that it should be finished the
following day at tlie same hour.
The client was punctual to bis appointment. The
advocate presented him with the opinion, and without
taking tlie trouble to reply to the thanks with which
the other overwhelmed him, said to him rudely—" Here
is tho opinion; there is no judge who, after having
seen that, will condemn you.    Give me ,1,000 francs I"
The client, was struck' dumb and motionless with pur-
" Vou aro as free to keep your money," said the advocate, " ns I am to throw this opinion into the lire."
Ho speaking, he advanced towards tho chimney ; but
he other stopped  him, and  declaring that he would
pay the sum demanded, but that he had only half of it
1 with him.
He drew, in fact, from his pocket-book 1,500 francs
| in bank notes.    The advocate with one hand took the
notes, nnd  with the other threw the opinion into n
•' But," said  the client, " I am going, if you please,
| to give you my note for ihe remainder."
I ivant money.    Bring me 1,500 francs more, or you
shall not have one line." v
There was no remedy, nnd the 8,000 francs were
paid : but the client, to revenge himself of being so
pillaged, hastened to circulate the anecdote. It got
into the newspapers, and for a fortnight there was a
deluge of witticisms of all kinds upon the disinterestedness of the ifreat advocato. Those who did not
laugh at il said it was deplorable that a man of such
merit should be tainted with a vice so degrading as
avarice. Bven his friends were moved by it, and some
of them went so far as to remonstrate with him puii-
licly ; bul the only reply he gave wns by shrugging bis
shoulders, and then, as everything is soon forgotten in
Paris, people censed to talk of Iho mutter.
Ten years had passed. One day the judges of the
Supreme Court, in (heir red robes, were descending the
steps of the Palace of Justice, to be present at a public ceremony. All nt once a female darted from the
crowd, threw herself at the feet of the Attorney-
General, seized the end of his robe and pressed it to
her lips. The woman was looked upon as deranged,
and the officers endeavored to drag her away.
"Oh, leave moalone;" she cried, "I recognise him—
it is he, my preserver I Thanks' to him, I have been
able to bring up my large family. Thanks to him, uiy
old nge is happy, 'oh, you do not know me!—One day
—I was very unhappy then—I was advised to bring an
action against a distant relation of my last husband,
who had possessed himself of a rich heritage that
ought to hare coine to my children. Already I had
sold half my goods to begin the action, when one evening I saw n gentleman enter my bouse who said to me
—'Do not. go to law ' reason and morality are for you,
but tho law is against you. Keep tho little you have,
and add to it these 3,000 francs, which arc truly yours.'
1 remained speechless with surpisc. When I would
have spoken and thanked him, ho had disappeared ;
i but the bag of money was there upon my table, and
the countenance of that generous limn was engraved
upon my heart never to be erased. Well, this man—
this preserver of my family,—is here) Let me thank
him before God and before men."
The court had Stopped. The Attorney-General appeared moved, but conquering his emotion, he said:—
''Take away this good woman, and take care that no
harm comes'to her. I don't think sho is quite right in
her mind." He was mistaken ; the poor woman was
not mad—only she remembered and Ml Dupin had for*
gotten.—Mirror of the Timet.
AVe take the following interesting extract from the
Times for California, of 30th August last : —
Tin: Mad Stoxk.—Wc condense the following from
the Linn county (Iowa) Register:—" The Rev. Mr.
Cleghorn, of Cowcr's Ferry, Cedar county, had one of
his sons bitten by a mad dog on the 2d inst., and also

having seen tho account which was published iitew
days ago of the " mad stone" in the possession of Mr.
Evans, of Paris, in this county, he immediately started
thither with his boy and horec. The stone wns soaked
in warm milk and water, and then applied to the wound.
It adhered with great tenacity—so much so as to cause
intense pain for a few minutes. After a short time it
seemed to fill itself nnd dropped off After being submerged in the milk and water again—during which a
green, offensive scum would arise from tho stone—it
was again applied. After the fourth time it would not
adhere any more and Mr. Evit'i? prpjltMinned him (
cured. It was then applied lo the wound ou the horse,
to which it adhered three times only. To make sure of
the matter, however, Mr. 0. remained over night, and
tried it again in the morning, but it would have no effect on either the boy or the horse. It seems to bo a
fact well attested that this stone will not adhere to any
wound not made by a rabid animal, and if so, must
confound the wisdom of the most philosophical."
ave the advantage of mo."—-'Yes," retorts Jones, " I
s'posc so j everybody has that's got common sense."
Smith looked unhappy.
A young gentleman, in describing the effect of his
first waltz, said he thought he was going to heaven on
a hand of music. For fifteen minutes he appeared lo
be swimming in n sea of rose leaves, with a blue angel.
This soon changed, be says, to a delirium of peacock
feathers, in which his brains got so mixed up with low-
necked frocks, musk, and melody, that he has fed on
links ever since.

Discovery op an Island.—The Now Bedford Mercury
leurns by a private letter that Captain Robert D. Eld-
ridge, of the bark Amazon, of Fairhaven, has discovered nn island in the Pacific Ocean, several hundred
miles from any laud laid down on the charts. The letter was dated at sea, Jan. Hi, 1859, and in it Captain
Eldridgo says of the island:—"It is iu lat. 0° 45' north,
and long. 170° 35' west, very low and dangerous, and
is, I expect, the lust resting place of tho crow of somo
of the ships which have been missed in years gone by.
I ran along the lee side within pistol-shot of the beach,
but it was too rough to land j and after convincing
myself that there wero no living people upon the island
squared away again. On tho highest part of the Island
is a IlOUSO, apparently built from pieces of n wreck, with
n llag-sliill' nt ouo end, from which still dangled the
lial-ynrd block. Near the houso were several little
hummocks, each with a tall, upright stone upon it,

dreary Spot, whore perhaps they had spoilt months in
vainly looking for a passing sail to reliovo thorn from

The entrance to tho Frascr River having been re-

has  been furnished to  the  Government by  Captain
Richards, of Her Majesty's Surveying Ship " Plumper,"
is herewith published for general information.
By Command,

Acting Colonial!
milE Entrance to the Frascr River has been re-Wc^'ed.

On entering the River, the Sand Head buoys should
not bo approached within half a mile, until the passage
between them is brought to bear N £ K, when a vessel may steer in, mid channel, or pass the North Sand
lli'ini buoy and the one inside it, from a cable to a
cable and a hairs length.
The remaining five buoys on the North sido of the
channel may bo passed from half a cable to a cable's
length, keeping them on the port hand in entering. Af-
terjmssiiig the inner buoy, n straight courso mny be
t d'.itcy Poi'tt'..
It must be remembered that the ebb tide sets to thd
southward, over the Roberts bank, and tho flood to the
northward, over the Sturgeon bank.
By attention to these directions, a vessel drawing
from 15 to 111 feet water, may enter the Fraser with
safety, at half-tide.
Tho buoys assume a leaning position, varying from
nn nngle of 35 " to 80 °, according to the state of the
tide and wind, and can be plainly seen from a vessel's
deck nt a distance of three miles iu clear weather.
Vessels bound for the River and coming through the
' Plumper Pass,' should steer N. N. W. as soon as they
enter the strait of Georgia.   This course leads di'.-oct
for the Sand Heads eleven miles distant, some sligh
Allowance being of courso made for the tide, which
runs from 1 to 2 knots in the strait, anu iriorc as tlie
entranco of the River is approached.
Vessels from the Southward, passing Robert's Point,
must avoid the Robert's bank, which is very steep to:
by not bringing the low part of this point to the Southward of East, Ihe bank will be cleared.

We have so frequently stated our conviction that the

Government of the United States would repudiate Gen.
Harney's hasty proceedings in tlie occupation of San

the arrival of General Scott, specially appointed by the
Federal Government as Commissioner 't0"1Mirg"thisun-

as meaning the whole body of water which separates
Vancouver's Island from the continent, that interpretation would give the island lately occupied by Gen.
Harney to the British, as it lies nearer to the British
shore than to ours. Tlie contrary representation lias,
indeed, been made, and the island claimed on that
ground for us. But this, though it be true of some of
the islands of tlie llaro group or archipelago, of which
San Juan is one, docs not appear to he the case with
that particular island. Our claim to it rests upon the
ground thai, in common with the whole group to
which it belongs, it lies on the continental side of the
main ship channel, by which vessels enter the Gulf of
Georgia, it being insisted on our side that the word
channel in the treaty is to be understood in this restricted sense. It will be recollected that Secretary
Matey, four years ago. said that the title ought to bo
settled before either parly should exclude the other by-
force or undertake the exercise of complete aud exclusive sovoreign rights within the disputed points. This

to result between tho two countries. Col. Hawkins of

New Westminster is a line bond of the river
about two miles in the diameter of the arc, j
the ground rises for 1 OU feet abruptly from
the water, and thence slopes imperceptibly I
backwards for an indefinite space for Ihe site
of a largo town. 1 can unhesitatingly pro-
nounce it to bo one of tho finest 1 ever saw*. \
It is tive miles by land from the side deep sea

isels of large dimensions, and nearly a mile
breadth at the City of New Wostminstor.
lt is surrouuded by elements of wealth in
agricultural and grazing land, fishories, timber, good prospects of coal, and many othor
minor advantages which do nol strike the
observer at once, and which are too numerous
to men'inn in a briof rcviow of this description. I cannot however felicitate the owners
of town lo!-* al the present moment on their j
prospects. If thoy looked for an immediate
return in laying out their funds in town lots,
I need not tell them they have been mistaken,
and grievously so, too, for a more wretched !

amidst a bewildering ruin of gigantic timber,

and look down in evident pity on their straggling neighbors. Verily, you havo met tho
fate of all speculators, you havo ventured
your money on such a hazardous cast of the

no mean character.    Wo learn in it, that with
the exception of a few places-, the streets of
Victoria are quagmires, and her country roads
but sloutrhs. fcbrQUEh /which nothyia human
can,  even  with modified discomfort, wade,
save the extremities be cased in "prunella"
up to the knee.    There is a moral in every
variety of defence with which the community
have  attired  1 heir lower ,nian,  which  the
Lands and Works Ollice of this Colony would
do well to lay to heart; apathy, bungling,
and extravagance are foremost in the suggestive category of ills which all this sudden
appearance of leather and catchouc presents.
Turn where we please, and we witness the
veriest botching conceivable. Take the Esquimalt, the most traveled, as a specimen of
a country road. Por want of the application
of a little ordinary professional senso, although
money- has been lately spent upon this road,
its condition bids fair,alroady, after but a few
showers, to equal the wretched state so much
spoken of last year. Take again the square
at James' Bay, the Govornmont Square, the
approaches to the Govornmont Offices, where
preparations for the winter rains might certainly have been oxpected ; if the public are
expected to run after the Government officers,
and where, considering that so much money
has been literally thrown away on gingerbread disfigurements, mistormed ornament,
the way to the same might have merited some
attention. What is its state'/ almost impassable; and property holders beyond the Square
with some hopes of success might indict, it as
a nuisance, as huge stones, set like traps to
upsel a vebicie or throw a horse, at the end
of the bridge—and clay-pits and sludgyspuces
all the way beyond, until the Temple Inn is
passed. Sow long is the presiding genius
of the Lands and Works Ollice to tax the five
thousand inhabitants of (his town and neighborhood in some eight dollars a bead per
month, the difference between the price of
ordinary shoes and the boots into which we
have all been compelled to rush within tbo
last few days;'—because the money which
might have improved our streets and to a great
extent completed our roads bus been ridiculously frittered away by that functionary
who presides in the Lund Department, upon
a set of ill-devised and unsuitable buildings
at which repairs or re-cobblings have already
commenced. When the Company present
their account for these works, we hope anew
House of Assembly will not fail to deduct the
cost of our shoe leather.
We have received a circular from Rev. W. F. Clarke
and regret extremely that want of space prevents us
from making as lengthy comments upon the subject referred to, in the letters which passed between him and
tho Rev. Matthew Macfie, as it merits, but we cordially
concur in the christian spirit manifested by the former
gentleman, and entirely disapprove of the course of
action towards a highly respectable ami inof'; industrious class of our community, which tlie Rev. Matthew
Macfie, would, it appears, advocate." In the sight of
God, all meu arc eyuals." We commend this to the
notiec of Rev. Matlhcw Macfie, and conclude by ex-
£ ~'iiig our extreme surprise, that n preacher of the
Racks.—The  Victoria  Races  will take place  at 12
o'clock, on Thursday, 27th inst.    The number of horseB

lompetitors.   eg   far.J.oshgu- that .the Autumn   Race

be such a fashionable and large assemblage, that it will
'• astonish the natives."
Ili.ei.Hj Aiussr.—'lade- this heading, we gave
insertion to a statement which at the time we believed
to bo substantially correct; but since then wo have
learned that Mr. Rabson was arrested and fined for
threatening a Police officer in the execution of his duly,
and not upon the charge of committing a nuisance : we
therefore deem it our duty to correct the statement, as
it is the duty of the press and public to uphold the
Police when in the right and opposed in the discharge
of their duty.
Royal Marines,—We find that we were in error in
staling that tlie Royal Marines, who were so conspicuously prompt in their attendance at the recent lire at
Patlriek & Co.'s, were under the command of Captain
Iiazalgette. Captain Magin is the officer who commands
the detachment, and was one ot the foremost in his endeavors to check the progress of the flames.
Dangerous Accident.—On Saturday, '22nd inst,., we
regret to say that a very serious accident happened to
Lieut. Sheepshanks, of II.M.S. Ganges, who, whilst engaged in a game of cricket nt. Colwood, fell on somo
broken glass. The result was a dangerous wound iu
the hand and wrist. Violent hemorrhage took place,
which was stopped witli much difficulty. In the night,
hemorrhage recommenced, and after a consultation of
all the medical officers of Ihe Sipiiulron, it was found
necessary to perforin an operation of a most tedious
and painful nature, with the viow of securing the artery. '
The operation was performed under the. influence of I
chloroform, and lasted about two hours. On Sunday,
we are happy to say, the unfortunate gentleman, though

Tlie following extract from Burns' Justice of the
Peace was then read by the clerk :—■
•- In lhc case of an information laid before a magistrate of a challenge being given, he should forthwith
issue his warrant to-bring the parlies before him, and
require thorn to find sureties to keep the peace."
Mr. Cary:—"Let me read that extract.'' The book
was handed to Mr. Cary, who read the extract without
making any comment upon the passage, but contended
that the evidence was insufficient to warrant his being
called upon to enter into recognizance.
Mr. Pemberton observed that his attention had lmen
called to the quarrel between Messrs. Ring and Cary, ii !
having become a matter of public  notoriety; and he J
alluded to the, fatal effects which resulted lately iu Cali- [
foruia upon a similar occasion, owing to the lax manner \
in which the laws in that country were administered.
One of the parties  in  the present   instance  had  been
omi^tii to cuter 1">«j  iccognixanco to  Keep me peace ;
mid it would be nsithor equitable nor just that the other 1
endeavors, so 1 will say no more now.

The following communication from the Assistant
Cold Commissioner and Justice of the Peace for the
Lytton District, containing matter which mny prove
interesting to the community, is herewith published for
general information.
By command.
William A. G. Youxc,
Acting Colonial Secretary.
Lytton, October 4th, 1S">0.
Sin:—I have the honor to report, for the information
of His Excellency, the Governor, that having received
several communications from miners stationed on the
Thompson and Fraser Rivers, that the Indians were
about to assemble to attack Hie white men, and Unit a
man named Antoino Gregoire, a half-breed at the
Pavilion, on the Fraser, was the principal instigator of
it, I considered it my duty, iu the capacity of Magistrate
of Hie District, to make a personal investigation of the
reports, and to endeavor to prevent, if possible, any
collision between the Indians and white men, and I
accordingly assembled as many of tlie chiofs at Lytton
as 1 could gather, and explained to them that it was
the wish ot all the whites lo he friends with the Indians,
and how much better il -vas that it should be so. I
then started with one of my constables, to visit the
ICCCl liy j different chiefs around, nnd Antoine Gregoire in particular, at the Pavilion, returning by Kamloops, and visit-
l ng ihe tribes on lhc Thompson River. With rospectl
to the report, of Anloine Gregoire being tlie principn
instigator, I am happy to say it was quite unfounded,
and that, from what i could learn of bis character, and
feelings towards the whites, it was more to his advantage, and wish, to be on good terms with them, than
otherwise, and that he was more likely to prevent than

Mn. Editor,—I must confess to being one of those
unfortunate beings whose education, in the opinion of
Ihe Gazelle, has never reached the point at which the
dictionary is used—for even now I cannot understand
that date means place as well as time. It would seem
rather odd to say that St. Helena was the "date" at
which Napoleon died—or California the "date" at
which gold was discovered—yet the Editor of the Gazelle finds nothing ridiculous in calling San Juan a
" date." Iu my opinion he might just as well
call it a fig. I was always under tho impression
too that to Item was a verb active signifying to stop into arrest progress. I am yet unconvinced of the fact
that its real meaning is io progress against. I am sorry
that the Editor of the Gazette cannat perceive the applicability of the word undertake to anything except a
funeral. Johnson and a few others have been more
liberal and cheerful iu their interpretations. These
small errors doubtless proceed from the Editor's iwper-
fei t appreciation of modern languages. IosoaAMAS.

and to make him understand that what was said by the
members of the Bar to each other on this matter'was
for the very purpose of preventing tlie circulation of it.
And   upon   this   word, no   man, however imperfectly
taught, or half educated, can be excused for making so
gross a mistake as Mr. Cary's.
Mr. Cary well knows, the Sheriff knows, Mr. Alston
knows, that my "two or three attempts" were attempts
not to explain away "my admissions." but.wereattempts
to overcome his ignorance or wilfulperveraion of language.
in which ctfort I was joined ineffectually by the Sheriff

When Mr. Alston had done, now, sani t, ati; o..._. ,i
require you to retract your charge that / circulated
things against your character, and it must be done in
tlie bearing of the gentlemen who were present when
you made it. I'll do nothing of the sort, said he, and
then, for the first time, applied the term " ungentle-
manly" to me. I must have that word retracted also
said L I will not retract it, replied Mr. Cary. Well, 1
said, 1 am willing to take the gentlemen of the Bar as
a Court of Honor, and if they say that the terms which
you have used, apply to me, I shall bow to their decision

efused this offer. Unwilling to be
forced into a hostile course, I said, well 1 shall forma
Court for myself, of the Sheriff and Mr. Alston, and
even if they say that your language is fitting I shall be
bound by their decision. On this I withdrew out of
hearing, not out of sight, and after five or six minutes
spent in expostulation with Mr. Cary, both these gentlemen came over to nil anil expressed their regret at not
being able to induce Mr. Cary to retract; Mr. Alston
adding—we told him that the charges of circulating
things against him, und the term " ungcntlemauly " of
which I complained were unjust and ought to be withdrawn. I then advanced to Mr. Cary and said in the
presence and hearing of his friends: now sir, your conduct is not only ungcntlemanly but most ungentlcmanly,
to which be replied with an air of llippant and petulant

advice and with the concurrence of Mr. Barnston 1
waited Until Saturday morning to give Mr. Cary full
time for reflection; this delay and patience upon my
part, he quibbles and tortures into " submitting to his
remarks for two days."
On Saturday at about 12 o'clock Mr Barnston put my
letter (which you, sir, have since published) in I
Cary's hands, wherein 1 put alternatives 1 "
tell him in tho plainest terms that in the event ofhis
refusing them, I shall denounce him in the most public
way. lie refuses—be knows my intention to publish
him as a slanderer and coward—he has my letter, which
avows that intention in his pocket, for twenty long
hours before be starts on his excursion, which by a
juggle he calls the eve of his departure, and because he
chooses to go away without explanation, apology or
meeting, and raises over his head a supposed shield of
ollice which every man of honor would stigmatize ns n
disgraceful covert of indemnity, he affectedly and bypo-
Iu thefirst place,—Mr. Cary states that when he received Mr. Ring's letter from me, he told mo that,
" of'ler perusal, he could not take the least notice of a
document of that character—adding that his official
position must prevent his initialing any further steps in
the matter.'' Now, Sir, Hie first part of this sentence
is strictly true,—the second part is quite the reverse.
Mr. Cary did not then, or at any other time say to me
that his official position prevented his initiating any
further stops in the matter. But after he had read the
letter, and made the remark which 1 admit, I asked him
fur bis answer. He threw back the letter, and said
that was his answer. I then told him that 1 could take
back no such answer, that if lie chose to enclose the
letter iu another envelope, or give another answer, I
should be mo3t happy to receive it. I then offered him
the letter which he had thrown to me. He refused to
lake it. I put Ihe letter down ou the table, and again
asked for an answer, lie said thul is my answer, cither
taking up tlie letter and throwing it down again, or
making a motion to that effect. Il'lien 1 met him in
the street afterwards he asked mc why 1 did nol. as Mr.
Ring's friend, advise him to go over and punch his head
instead of doing as lie had done—and then added—he
must know my hands are tied.—a widely different remark from the one he pretends to have made in his
own ollice, a remark which in my estimation shews
that he did look upon the letter as equivalent to a
In the second place, he states that my imputations
" that he declined a challenge tendered by Mr. Ring,
aiul that. lie. was aware Mi\.K.iug. was. about to advertise hiinsell in the papers are untrue.'' In answer to
the first part of this remark, I have only to state, that
any one reading my letter will see, that I merely state
what I consider to be the substance of the latter part
of Mr. Ring's letter, without conveying any imputation
that would not be borne out by the letter itself. It is
left to Mr. Cary's refined sense of honor, aided by a
little special pleading, to discover, at this late date, that
the letter did not contain a challenge.
As for tlie latter part of tlie remark, it is so absurdly
ridiculous, and such a total misrepresentation of the
facts that it is hardly worth notice. 1 no where state,
or impute that he " was aware that Mr. Ring was about
to advertise himself in the papers," but I did state
that Mr. Ring plainly informed him that be would denounce him, (Mr. Cary,) in Hie most public way—as he
has done. Mr. Cary admits that he read Mr. Ring's

Sir,—The above is the head to a paragraph in the
Victoria Gazette of Oct. 20th. Considering the excellent
knowledge of History and English grammar, professed
by  the Editor  of  the  Gazette, as exhibited in his remarks  upon  (he  Repeal of Ihe Corn   Law,  and Irish
famine, and in the meaning of "date," •' stem," kc, we
think the imperial   infant  could not find a more competent instructor than the worthy Editor of Hie Victoria

numerous testimonials, which would  doubtless ensure \

To the Editor of the British Colonist:
Sir—Were I inclined to continue a correspondence
of an ecclesiastical and political character with Mr.
Clarke, I should do so by private letter, which would
prevent the idea pcoplo somehow do take up, viz : that
" vexed questions can be timely brought forward
for  political   capital   or   private  ends"—at times   in _
a slightly one-sided view,    1 shall only  answer one or | (.urnett, J K
two  romKlKs of Tour  own, which 5 do  not think Mr. , Goodnow, A L
Clarke would endorse. 1 would ask, is it English or fair    Gurey, J
to dissect a letter sent for publication., head its sections    Goldsworthy, \V
according to editorial estimate of the meaning, and go    Germin, M
in Bearch of the ludicrous?    May I also venture to iu-    Gorr, P
quiro why you did not dissect, or adorn, or honor with |
your  private  interpolations, or  whatever  you  like lo
Vail it. the original  letter,  » A State Church  Again;
but I must say  I think  it is  much  more  intelligible
without perversions of meaning, kc-, marring  its even
tenor     As to tho value of the term "authority" or "appointees," as Mr. C. names  the  gentlemen  alluded to
"thoy are not chargeable vou say to British Columbia."
[f the assurance given that  "the word is an error of
terms" not admitted, after your  own  admission and a
pood explanation on my part is, you must remain, sir,
in the happy condition
Of the man convinced against Ins will,
Keeping the same opinion still.
In  conclusion I beg to say I am an  advocate for a
Colonial Church, or I should not be residing at Fort
Hope as a clergyman of the Church of England.
1 am, sir, yours, kc,

Henry modestly waited his lordship's reply, and at
length it came, slow, lingering, and nicthodicHl. "Do

Ihe same freedom. My pen, my books, have never-

favorite in times gone by, to the utter exclusion of my
lrnfortuiiale self;" and, regardless of his lordship's
evident reluctance, Alfred Graham drugged him off in
triumph to the bull.
Whilst wailing for Ihcir lints and gloves, that young
gentleman, who was stnnding with Henry Fitzmollon,

and  confidential   lone, " Vou would  scarcely suppose

Streamed thickly and silently from her swollen eyelids
bore testimony to her wounded feelings.
Shocked at the inadvertency, aud really pained nt
having drawn forth her tears by his thoughtless exclamation, Alfred lost no time in uniting his efforts to her
brother's caresses ; and Sophy, ever accessible to kindness, soon forgot her momentary grief, and listened in
Unfeigned delight to some comical stories which Alfred
related for her amusement, nor was her merriment
abated when, with a schoolboy's freedom, ho insisted
I on selling her cotton-box in order, making, of course,

Thus passed the lime until Mr, Fitzmolton entered,
and with him came luncheon, of which the lady of the
house would insist on Lord St. (/'lair's partaking, paying him all tho while the most obsequious attentions,
while she neglected to offer the slightest mark of courtesy to her less wealthy guest.
