"1 think so, loo," saiJ Mr. Watkinr*
T.rttle; "certainly."
"And then, tlte other night—I never
liUL'hril 10 much iu my life"—resumed
Mr fltl.riel Parson*; "I had rtriven
luimr. in an easterly wind, and caught
a devil of n face sehe. Well; as Fanny
—that's Mrs. Parsons you know—an 1
thia friend of hen, and I, and Frank
Ross, were playing a rubber, I said,
jokingly, that when I went in bed 1
should wrap my lend in Fanny's
flannel petticoat. She instantly threw
up her cards, and left the room.
"Quite right 1" s.id Mr. Watkins
Tottle, "ahe could not possibly have
behaved lo a more dignified manner.
What did you dol"
"Do?—Funk took dummy, and I
won six-pence."
"llui, didn't you apologize for hurting her feeling*?'
"Devil a bit. Next morning at
breakfast, we talked it over. She contended lhat any reference to a flinnel
petticoat waa improper;—men ought not
to be supposed to know that such
things were; I pleated my coverture,
being a innrii.-il   man."
"And what did the lady say to that?"
inquired Tottle, deeply interested.
"Changed her ground, and said that
Frank being a single man, its impropriety was obvious."
"Noble min.le I orcature!" exclaimed
the enraptured Tottle.
"Oh I  both Fanny and I aaid at once
that she was regularly cut out for you."
A gleam of placid satisfaction  shone
on the circular   face  of Mr.   Watkins
T ttle, as he heard the prophecy.
'There's one thing I can't understand." said Mr. Gabriel Parsons, as he
lose to depart; "I cann t, for the life
and soul of me iniagin", how the d nee
you'll evtr contrive to come together.
The lady would certainly go into con-
v.rlsio a if the ubj c were mentioned,"
Mr. Gabriel Parsons sat do again, and
laughed until Iin was weak, Tottle

fnrward to the introduction, when again

The sun that rose ou the next day but
one, had nevei belli 11 a aprucer per-

—alighted, with great dignity. "AH
right!" aaid be, anl away went the
coach up tho hill with that beautiful
equanimity of pace for which "short"
stages are generally remarkable.
Mr, Watkins Tottlu gave a faltering
jerk to ihe handle of the garden-gate
bell He essayed a more energetic mg,
and hia previous nervousness wis not at
all diminished by healing the bell ring
ing like a fire aliriim,
"la Mr. Pirsons at home?" inquired
Toitle of thn man who opened t' e gate.
He could hardly heir himself speak;
for the ball hd not yet done tolling.
"Here I am," shoute! a voice on the
lawn,—and there waa Mr. Gabriel
Parsons in a flnnnel picket, running
backwards anrl forwards, from a wicket
to two hats piled on each other, and
fiom the two hats to the wicket, in the
most violent manner, while another
gentleman with hia coat off was getting
down the area of the house, after a ball.
When the gentleman without the coat
had found it—which he did in less than
ten minutes—he ran back to the hats,
and Gabriel Parsons pulled up. Then
the gentleman without the coat called
out "pi y," very loudly, anil bowled.
Then, Mr. Gabriel Parsons knocked the
ball several yards and took soother
run. Then, the oiher gentleman aimed
at the wicket, and didn't hi', ii; and Mr.
Gabriel Parsons. having finished
running on his own account laid down
the bat and ran after the ball, which
went into the neighboring field. They
called this cricket.
"Tottle, will you 'go int" " inquired
Mr. Gabriel Parsons, as he approached
him, wiping the perspiration off his
Mr. Watkins Tottle declined the offer
the bare idea of accepting which made
him even warmer than his friend.
"Then we'll go into tbe house, as
it's past four, and I shall have to wash
my hands before dinner," said Mr.
Gabriel Pataons. "Here, I hate ceremony, you know 1    Timson, that's Tot-

when she waa young, ami tiny migbl
always h.ve pre.enterPthe same app-ar-
aucc. Hei complexion—with a slight
trace of powder here and there—was as
clear as that of a well made wax doll,
and her face as expressive. She was
handsomely dressed, and was win ling
up a gold watch.
"Mi»s Lilian n, my dear, this is our
friend Mr. Wa kins T-.ttle; a very ol-'
acquaintance, 1 assure you," said Mrs.
Parsons, presr-ntinglhe Strepbonof Oecil
street, Sand. The lady rose, and ma.b-
a deep courtesy; Mr. Watkins Totti-
made a bow.
"Splendid, majestic creature I" thought
Mr. Timson advancer!, aid Mr. Wat
kins Tottle began to hate him. M-n
generally disc .ver a rival, instinctively,
and Mr. Watkins Tottle felt that hie
hate was deserved.
"May I beg," said the reverend
gentleman,— 'may 1 beg to call upon
you, Miss Lillerton, for some trilling
donation to mv soup, coals, and blanket-
distribution society!'
"Put my name down, for two
sovereigns, if you please." responded
Miss Lillerton.
"You are truly charitable, madam,"
said the Reverend Mr. Timson, "and
we know that charity will cover a
multitude of sins. Let mo beg you to
understand that I do not siy this from
the supposition th.t you have many
sins which require palliation; believe
me when J sav lhat I never yet met any
one who had fewer to atone for, than
Miss Lillerton."
Something like a bad imitatifin ot
animation lighted up the lady's face, na
sh" acknowledged the. compliment.
Watkins Tottle incurred the ain of
wishing that the ashes of the Reverend
(Jliarles Tiinson were quietly deposited
in the church y.ird of his curacy.

with a Christian smile; he liislikcd Parsons but liked 'he dinners,
"So po-otively unjust!" sairl Miss
"C.rtiinlv," obseiv-d Toitle. The
lady looked np; her eyes met those of
Mr. Watkius Toitle. She withdrew
them in a swer-t confusion, an 1 Watkins
I'otlle did the same—the confusion was
' Why," urged Mr. Parsons, pursuing
h'B oliji-ctions, "what on earth is the

don't mean to insinuate that I wish lo
see mv name in print, on the church
door," interrupted Miss Lillerton.
"I hope not," sairl Mr. Watkins
Tottle, putting in another word, and
getting another glance.
"Certainly not," replied Parsons. "I
dare say you wouldn't mind seeing it
in writing, though, in the church ri-gis-
"Register! What register)'' inquired
the lady gravely.
"Why, the regnrter of marriages, to
be sure," replied Parsons, chucklingat
the sally, and glancing at Toitle. Mr.
Watkina Tottle thought he should have
fainted for shame, and it is quite impossible to imagine what effect the joke
would h.ve had upon the lady, if dinner
had not been at that moment, announced.
Mr. Watkins Tottle, with an unprecedented effort of gallantry, offered the
tip of his little finaer; Miss Lillerton accepted it gracefully, wiih mailen
modesty; and they pioceeded in due
state to the dinner table, where they
were soon deposited side by side. The
room was very snug, the dinner very
good, and the little party in spirits.
The conversation became pretty*general,
and "hen Mr. Watkins Tottle had extracted one or two cold observations
fiom his neighbor, and had taken wine
with her, he began to acquire confidence
rapidly. The cloth was removed; Mrs.
Gabriel Parjpna drank four glasses of
port on the plea of b--ing a nurse just
then; and Misa Lillerton took about the
same numberof sips on the plea of not
wanting any at all. At length, the
Udies retired, to the great gratification of
Mr. Gabriel ParaonH, who hail been
coughing and frowning at his wife,   for

"Ynu didn't go, of course?' said
Watkins Tottle.
"Didn't 1?—Of course I did. There
she was, with the identical housemaid
in perspective, iii order that there
might be no interruption. We walked
about for a couple of hours; made ourselves delightfully miserable; and were
regului'ly engaged. Then, we began to
correspond'—that is to sny. We used
to exchange about four letters a day,
what we used to say in 'em I can I
imagine. And I used to have an interview, in the kitchen, or the c- liar,
or some such place, every evening.
Well, things went on in this way for
some time; and we got fender of each
other every day. At last, as our love
was raised to such a pitch, and as my
salary had been raised too, shortly, before
we determined on a secret marriage.

At a public meeting in Clinton a feu-
days ago, the Attorney-General admitted that his government attempted to
secure Ned Allen's vote by bribing hia
Kon. Bribery may lie perpetrated in
many ways. The gift of a place, and
pood pay are as substantial rewards aa
equivalents in cash or lands. Ned
would not vote against the people, and,
therefore, Neds son was dismissed.
With a low sweet voice the Attorney
General made a plain statement, antl
be did not blush while acknowledging
thai bribery is a part of "the -nilicy.'
Reports received from several sources in the North-west proclaim Gen.
Middleton to be a calm, cool soldier.
He saw in a moment the insignificance
of his opponents and therefore he proceeded leisurely to victory. A heroic
commander would bave sacrificed a

by the  General's skill.
Eight hundred Chinamen arrived in
Victoria on Tues-lay last and disappeared immediately in the Chinese
quarter. What becomes of all the un-
fortuuate wretches lhat enter this free
port? is a question that puzzles several
citizens. Is it possible that there is a
slave market in the suburbs where pale
faced long tailed men are trotted out
in the moonlight and sold to slave masters who come from the other side? Or
have the Chinese merchants a caunery
iu some dark corner of the city where
the wretches are half cooked, packed
in tins marked—chicken? Slave masters
or chicken packers could readily carry
on a trade with the consent of our "Responsible Ministers" but surely some
independent member will ask at the
next meeting ofthe legislative council
for some account of the multitude of
Chinamen that has disappeared in

In the house at Ottawa Mr. Blake
said in reference to the railway; "It
bas sharp curves and grades 237 feet
to the mile; in land and cash subsidies
the syndicate has received "aid" to
the amount of $138,000,000 and the
whole cost from Callander to Port
Moody cannot exceed   sixty millions."
The art of fobbing is practised by
Ministers at Ottawa: tbey are making
millions for themselves and millionaires
for the people. Legislation with reference to the railroad, the franchise,
und Chinese immigration proves that
the Ministers see the people as they are

A few years ago the Sacramento river
in California was stocked with shad and
the numbers of this fish taken annually
is now sufficient lor the markets of the

thence forth the crop continues to increase in the most extraordinary manner.
The crop of shad planted in the Sacramento has extended itself along the
shores of the Pacific to the mouth of

in our foreign policy in which Tory
and Liberal administrations are equally
at fault. Unless our people keep their
eyes open on this branch of political
life we shall have disaster and calamities before us. Adding millions to our
military expenditure while complaining
of the depression of trade and the
miserable housing of the poor, is a
policy rather of lunacy than of intelligent statesmanship."
The great Quaker is a wise, good
man, but he belongs to the past. War

We observed a communication in the
New York Sun from their Seattle cor-
respondent, in which the writer reviews
the relations of the Dominion with
thia Province, from a Victoria standpoint, and regards the action of the
Federal Government as being unjust to
British Columbia.    He even  goes on
to aay, that while the connection witli
the Dominion is weakening, the  relations between us and the neighboring
State* is daily gaining strength;   evidently be intends to imply that some
lime in  the future we may be induced
to join the throng of Slates now covered by the  wings  of   the  American
Eagle.    He is   not the first, by many
thousands, who bave treated en a simi
Inr theme, and he will not be the last.
There a'* people in the eastern Prov
inces of  the  lloiiiiiiinn   * ho ent- 1 inin
such an   idea as possible,  and we  pre
suine we have people in this  Province
who  express themselves in the   same
way; but  if   these persons were added
tn the population of the great republic
they would   not bo   rat-wmi-d a   great
gain, and if they wuuld take themselves
and   their   belonging! over the border
to the land for which they pretend to
have sueh a great esteem, they would
be such a loss to the Dominion aa would
cause no regret.    That wc have causes
of complaint against the   Federal Government is undoubted; but we believe
a great deal of the fault lies with our
own local Government,  which has, for
the most part, by their action, created
a wrong impression at Ottawa, and this
more particularly on  the part  of   tbe
present   local   Government.    There   is
another reason for misconception, which
is common  to all Govern men ib with a
distant dependency—the authorities at
Ottawa and tho people of   the eastern
Provinces do not understand us.    Although we have formed a portion  of
the confederacy for about fifteen years,
the people in the east know about as
much of our habits, manners and ways
of thinking, as they know ubout   the
people of   Alaska    The people of the
northern  States  of   the   Union  have
much the same difficulty in judging of
of the sentiments of the people  down
South.    They forget or do not coinpre
bend   the   difference   which    locality
makes in the way men have of regarding the same objects.     It takes a long
time before the people from the eastern
Provinces   can    assimilate  our   ideas.
Some of them never get rid of tho notions,   political   and   otherwise,   that
foi med the   prevalent opinions of the
locality from  whence they emigrated.
Thus, we must, always look for what
we esteem injustice at the hands of the
Federal Government, but what is considered when looked at from an eastern
point of view, to be only what is fair.
For instance, many of the items in the
customs   tariff,    which   are   perfectly
equitable in the cast, ure really nothing
less  than extreme hardship here, and
will always be a source of disconten'.
For that we are indebted to a clique of
Victoria   merchants,    who   calculated
they would  derive some   benefit   from
the  Dominion tariff as  it then   was,
and like tbe Tooley Btreet tailors, chose
to  speak   for  the  people  of   British
Columbia,   when   the   choice  between
our own tariff and tbe Federal  tariff
was offered   to   us     Of   course,   they
have had cause to curse their ill judged
interference,   as   the   tariff   has   been
considerably increased sincn the option
was tendered to   us.    We   have other
grievances, but we look upon them as
family matters,  and   would  certainly
not submit I hem to Uncle Sam for adjudication.    The faults of the Federal
Government would require to lie of such
a serious  character  that   their  occur
rence is next to an impossibility, lie-
fore we should think of secession.    As
a speaker at 11 recent meeting said,  we
want to go back to the old flag if  we
leave the   confederacy.     We   have   a
good deal of the John Bull in us, how-
ever mixed our population may lie, and
we want to have the right to grumble
when we like, and talk "sassy" without
bring   interfered  with   by  neighbors.
We like our cousins over the line very
well and calculate to do a good deal of
trade   with   them;   if   they are   wise
they will let well alone, and not run
away  with   tho   idea  that   we  mean
"sccesh."    They   have a large  family,
and so far as we  can  judge it  takes
them  all  their time   to   keep  things
straight in their own "illihi."     They
have some cantankerous folks among
them who wouldn't mind taking a hand
with us, if they could  do it handily;
but they arc no  doubt few  and have
bad taste.    By the time the everlasting
eagle   has gathered  under his  wings
Mexico and a few of the Central Amer
ican republics, Uncle Sam will have a
pretty big farm to look after,   which
ought to be better worth his attention
than any part of the Dominion.    We
should recommend the Seattle correspondent   of   the Sun to  rub   up  his
geography, and he will discover there
are other portions of British Columbia
besides  Victoria.    The  ferry and the
Island railway never formed any portion of the Canadian Pacific  railway;
they were merely vagaries of the Victoria people, who will find  that they
have paid too much for their whistle;
but tbat is their affair, and it does not
seem to have been  understood by the
Sun correspondent.
It is strange that the people of British Columbia have never duly appreciated the very important position they
hold in relation to the Dominion, as
the Gate to the  Pacific.    Our wealth
derived from nature is immense;   not
like Ontario, as an agricultural province, but as containing all the resources
of an industrial people, in minerals of
all kinds, including gold, silver, copper,
lead, iron, coal, lime, tbe liest quality
• f clay, timber, fish, magnificent rivers,
safe bin Ikii-s, ami, above all, the position
on lhe Pacific Ocean which commands
tbe beat and   readiest   communication
with  all   the countries around   which
the   Pacific  and   Indian  oceans How.
The Dominion has   plentv of   land in
her north western territories, but Russia has a great deal   more.    But  the
power  and  importince of  Russia are
rendered nugatory for want of outlets
to the sea.   Such would be the position
of the Dominion without British Columbia; ber vast extent would be comparatively worthies' without our frontage on the Pacific.    Not only  is this
Province hound to be the greatest in
the Dominion by reason of our natural
wea'th and tino climate, but it will one
day ere long be the cynosure of  the
whole Dominion, and so far from our
present   unsatisfactory position of dependence on   the will of the eastern
provinces,  and   being contributory to
their wealth, we shall be the recipient
of every favor we can desire from tbem,
and they will all be contributory lo us.
Every  market in   the  Old  World  is
over stocked.   The competition in every
industry is now so great   that  profits
from manufactures have fallen to zero,
and people are starving for  want  of
employment.   But iu Australia, Papua,
Borneo, and the Indinn archipelago we
have a new world, where markets for
manufacturing products are bring rapidly opened.     Merchandise from   the
over stocked warehouses of Europe will
Uow this  way, and, for  rapidity and
cheapness of carriage, will be  carried
over the Canadian Pacific Railway and
the Hudson Bay Railway, all centering
in this Province, antl pnying toll to us.
I'he men at the head of affairs in the
eastern   Provinces are evidently alive
to these facnt, but take care to conceal
t limn.    We  cannot be  surprised that
they should feel great contempt for us,
since they can see that we are entirely
blind to our own advantages.    Instead
of turning our position and wealth to
account,   we   place  men   like   Honest
John at the bead  of   our ull'airs,   and
we allow   him to give away our lands
and   mineral wealth   10 strangers and
aliens, and sell   our splendid timber to
Americans for the   means   of   buying
vott-3 to enable  him to retain  his very
profitable position in the Government.
Not 0 ly do we nllow  him  to dispose
of our natural wealth, but   we permit
him to speculate with it, and even to
use the money that   be takes from us
in   taxes to   subsidize a   railway,   the
nly value of   which will be to make
his land valuable,  and to buy out the
settlers   on hinds   who   may  interfere
with thr' profitable results of his own
speculation.   Undersuch circumstances,
who can treat Ul witli respect?    Well
mny   Btrangors   sny  we   are fossilized.
We are worse; we are brutally ignorant
and  unworthy of the   blessings which
Providence bus placed within our reach.
Everyone can  understand   the  result.
By slow degree! at first, but ultimately
witb a rush,  will co ne strangers from
every   quarter,   who   will   seize   upon
every advantage; and we, tbe pioneers,
will lie thrust aside and become hewers
of wood  and drawers of water.    Our
fate is inevitable;   we are incapablo of
thinking or moving.    It cannot be asserted   that   we   have   overdrawn   the
foregoing picture; the fact that Smithe,
Kobson  and   Duck  are three of   our
ministers is sufficient to convince any
sensible man of the truth  of what we
hive stated.    No people with ordinary
intelligence   would have allowed  such
measures  as  the   Kootenay   bill,   the
Settlement bill, tbe Eagle Pass wagon
road bill, the Land bill, the Education
bill,  the   resolutions giving away  the
laud at Coal Harbor and English Bay,
the renewal of the lease to the Hastings Sawmill Company, and  numerous
otlier measures  of  a like outrageous
character,   to   pass,   in,   what   we are
pleased  to  call   a, Parliament.     The
ministers   were   bad   enough,   heaven
knows!  but   the  representatives   that
supported  them,  a  number of  whom
wero from the  Mainland, were a great
deal worse.    They agreed,   no  matter
under what circumstances,  to protect
the interests of their constituents, but
instead  of  this they cruelly betrayed
them.     The  whole  of   the  measures
above-mentioned affected, prejudicially,
the Mainland alone, and they became
particeps criminis in the shameful frauds
perpetrated on tho Mainland. In future
years, the people  who will come here
and make this'Province great, and who
will strip from us everything that we
have worked So hard to make valuable,
will, when  we complain  at being despoiled,   point to  the  days when  we
allowed   poor creatures  like  Smithe,
Rolrson, and Duck, to peel us without
mercy, and tell us to thank our stars
that we have abler men to do the same
thing.    We have wealth, opportunity,
and  every blessing   that  nature  can
provide, but we allow ourselves to be
bamboozled by a few ignorant fanatics,
who advise us to attend prayer-meetings,   join   blue ribbon   societies, and
adopt the Scott Act!

It is an open shame that a comi.iunity
should be imposed upon in tht* manner that
our citizens have been ever since Honest
John has assumed the reins of govern'nent.
He api-eara to have made it his chief study
to retard the development of this place, notwithstanding he has beeu lavish iu Iii* promises of fair play toward every ,■...* :ti n ut his
jurisdiction. The entirely inad qu.ite amount
that bus been appropriated for our |p>cal
roads, educatiooal facilities, and care of
criminals, has, as it were, been wrung from
the powers that hu by repeated petition and
.■oippli-'-itioii. as though favors, Initwd of
right***, weie hcing asked fiVr by the citizens.
The secret of this discrimination is evidently
that selfish private interest at 0>>al Harbor
opposes the advancement of Port Moody as
a rival point. The Latest instance of the
culpable neglect of this place, is the failure
to provide a secure and suitable lock-up for
law-breakers who may be held by the eon-
stable for trial. About two mouths ago the
jail quarters were removed to a hen-hou.*.e
on Queeji street, for the ostensible purpose
of avoiding payment of a little rent to Capt.
Clarke, who had fitted up a building for the

"Tin entrail' <• ot t'ii-« snqg harbor is 4
miles eastward of the Second Varrows, at
the head of the eastern arm ofthe inlet. It
is three miles in length, and varies in width
from a third to half a mile, except at the
entrance, where it is only two cables (1219
feet); there are na danyecA, and uniform depth
of water with good holding ground. Tho
direction of the port is S.K. by E.JE. for
nearly two miles, and E. by S, for a mile,
terminating iu a muddy flat at its head,
which reaches within 'A miles of the batiks
of Pitt river, and about 4 miles from the
Military Camp at New Westminster, on the
Fraser. The neat anchorage is in the widest
part of the harlior, just before reaching the
Arm, which turns E. by S. in from 5 to 0
fathoms, and one-half mile* from the trail
wliiili leads to X.-w Westminster. Abreast
the turning point, and on the North shore, a
bank dries ott' for nearly '.! Oftbltt at low-
water, on which good oysters are found."
This des -ription is from the surveys made
by Captain G. H. Rlohsrdl, It. N., in 11.M.
ships "Plumper" and "Hcc-ite," between
(he years !S."i,S and I Mil. and there is no
duubt that it is absolutely correct, as from
that time to the present no changes have
Iwen made in the Admiralty Chart... The
surroundings being densely woude.l when
theso surveys were made, will account for
the slight discrepancies between Xew Westminster and Pitt river. It is easy to understand why the Dominion Government chose
this port up the Western terminus of the
Canadian I'acitie Railway, simply from the
fact that it is superior to any other in the
Uritish possessions on the Pacific Coast, a
statement emphatically endorsed by Sir
Chat. Tupper in a speech delivered by bim
in the House of Commons on "20th February,
I8H4. He says: —"Aa to whether Port
Moody or English Bay is the beat port for
the terminus, all I can say is that the Oof'
eminent selected Port Moody as the Western
terminus of the railway, and. iu doing so
they selected a port accessible from tbe
Pacific Ocean which is declared to be the
best port that can be found on the Pacjlic
Coast. Her Majesty's vessels during the
past year, surveyed the harbor, and We have
the declaration ofthe officers who have l..-en
there (and they are the most perfectly independent and able Bounces of information) that
wc have made the most wise and judicious
-a-].-i tion that oould havo been nia.Ie -that
tlio port is simply perfect and that ther* is
nothing on the raaUto Coast superior to it.
And they have now represented tothe Admiralty the propriety of making Port Moody
the headquarter* foi the Admiralty on tho
Pacific Coast as bcinti the best location to be
found there. The hon. gentleman would, I
daresay, like us to go down to English Bay
baoattM it would havo compelled the expenditure ot |1,000,000 to get there in the Brat
lfMtanoo,aud another fl.OOO.OOO or S2.000.000
to make a harbour out of an open roadstead where there is comparatively no anchorage. I say the Government feel thut
they have done all that is neoauary in relation to that question when they carried the
C. P. H. to a terminus which was declared
to be unequalled on the Pacific Coast "
From this naimranoait tl evident that the
most aearrhiiig investigation bai boon made,
the boat authorities oonoulttd, and .ill Infor*
ii i'i   0 hearing oil tlie atttyOCt  BXoaUStod 00-

fans oi mob ovidenoa M thia, It Is difficult Ut
conceive that an error in judgment copl.-l exist; and it is greatly to be regretted that a
few interested parties at the mouth of the
Inlet, from purely speculative motive.*.,
should have beeu the means tin a great measure) of stagnating Dusiness matters and
causing antral depression, not only at Port
Movuly, hut throughout the district generally. Number* of capitalists have vfiitod
our shores, aud although thoroughly satisfied
with the groat ■'itpiibiiitifis of our port, have
refrained from investing until the tenniuus

For the information of those who have
not had an opportunity of making a personal
visit to Port Moody, a general sketch of its
principle features may lie acceptable; and
perhaps in doing so it cannot be described
m-Te truthfully than in the language of a
visitor, who waa so charmed with our harbor
and its snrrouudingj that he gave vent to
his thoughts and pu'dished tho following
des -'i-iption of this embryo city:
''Port Moody,on tne famous Burrard Inlet,
was selected by the Government of Canada
in 1878, on* tbe recommendation of the British Admiralty, through Admiral Richards,
as the tide water terminus of the Canadian
Pacific Railway on the Pacific Coast. Rival
points, envious of the distinction thus conferred upon Port Moody, have not been alow
in the effort to detract Irom its merits. Admiral Richards in his report recommending
Port Moody, Bays that Burrard Inlet ia the
first aud only natural harbor on the Pacific
Co is'. Asa port easy of access at all seasons and stages of water, it is without a
rival anywhere.    On its waters can ride tho

booming city. In view nf the near comple
tion of the Canadian Pacific K.ilway, certain to be within two years, the Premier of
Canada, Sir John Macdonatd, recently stated
that a powerful corporation was being or-*
genfied to operate the Canadian Pacific
Etailway and Oriental Steamship Company,
whoso vessels are to ply between Port
Moody ami the great trading porta of Asia,
Australia. New Seolond and-South America.
The channels of commerce arc governed by
natural laws which cannot be diverted.
Port Moody, the head of ocean navigation
on the Pacific (.'oast, is nearer to Kurope by
hundreds of miles than either San Franoiaoo
or Portland, While the construction of the
Hudson Hay Railway will bring Port Moody
nearer to Liverpool by 1,700 miles than will
be San PranuisOO, Port Moody is the funnel
through which must pass the immuiise com*
rneroe of tho Asiatic countries and vice versa.
Not only will Port Moody be tlie great
shipping emporium of Canada on the Pacific
Coast, but it will be the centre of trad*- and
commerce generally. Racked by a continent
the most fertile iu the world, whoaa inhab
iunts will yet number many million*) poo-
sessiug natural advantages iu the shape of
raw materia] fn tho forest, Iron mines and »
never failing supply nf ooal, a genial, sain*
brioua olimate, a wonderful harbor, in -a hich
tha largest vessels afloat can ride safely at
anchor and perfectly laud lock* d -ind secure
against nil weather, the terminus of the
most stnpendi-ua railway undertaking of
modern days, the only steel belt spanning
tho continent under one management, it is
not difficult to forecast the future of Port
Moody. Hero will be located Immense iron
works, oar shopst machine ihopa with ponderous itoam uamuiera and tu bother ma*
chi'iery as is necessary for the propT 0|'iip-
ini-nt of first-class shop*, such only a-* tne
Canadian Paolflc Railway Company will nnd
must have, employing here as ii done by
them in Montreal and Winnipeg, thou-and-,
of sturdy artisans und otlircrs who, with
their families, will require homes in which
io reside ami the niual neo<eisaries of bfe.
Mo greater wae the change in the condition
of affairs iu Winnipeg, Port Arthur, Bran*
Ion, Calgary and uther weateru Canadian
cities than will bt* that bo bu witness* i u
P..it Moody in a year or two. Generally
•peaking, great shipping, manufacturing and
commercial ritiea do not arise in a few days.
Hut that which to many iu the past has ap
pearcd uamdojdeol uill be reaHied in the
case of Port Moody, which not only will be
a veritable hum of activity anil industry,
but likewise it will lie one uf the social, ru-
ligioua, educational and political centres of
the Dominion."

The river ia still too high for the opposition steamer to cnie farther up than Kmory,
As a consequence, times are duller than
usual here. There has been nothing done

Can't on it.—The "Columbian," in referring to the rumor that the Canadian Pacific will carry emigrants from Halifax to
Port Moody for $15, says: "The policy of
the road ought to embrace a tariff of extremely cheap rates. These, with the other inducements the road has to offer, would divert
nearly the whole tians-e .ntineutal traffic
from the American roads io the C. P. R."
The wisdom of this is not evident. In any
event the C. P. R. can not hope for much
American traffic, owing to its location distant from the heart and producing center of
the States; and to attempt any rate-cutting
would be disastrous to the railway company
and to the country. The American roads,
controlled by such men aa Gould, Vanderbilt, Huntington, &c>> would just like the
pastime of freezing out the C. P. R., and
they have ample capit 1 to afford the amusement. While a very cheap immtgrant rate
might be the means of bringing ninny people
to this countrv, we would soon find-that the
class who would be induced to come by a low
traffic rate, were just the ones whom we
have no use for here. Paum-rs and miaeia
need not apply. Ir were better for them
selves aud tot British Columbia should tbey

the fishermen a drought has prevailed tbis
year and the waters of tbe Columbia river
have b-jen very low, and nearly as clear as
crystal. Therefore, m the -lay time, the
fish can see th • nets, and refuse to enter,
swimming underne;*th, and the fiabormou
arc compelled to work at olgbt. In addition
to this is the fact that tu re h is been a strike
on the part of the Habennen on the Columbia rixer, of eleven days'duration, during
