I'rom it bright youug'-girl when  the Oaeeu iisrended ��� the throne in  juiiC. 1S37. on the death of William  IV.. to the present d;ite, is a- lo..g  '-line, and many events ha.ve taken  place, both in the rri*. ate and pubilc  h;e of'.he Queen, and, .ake eitlier,  >ve find in the one a devoted wife,  a loving mother, and a r oble, podly  .voinaa; 'in the other, we find in-  d-imilable energy, wonderfal wisdom and a matchless dignity.  Almost one of the.last .publh acts  of the Queen, so far as we have any  :.;;"i):-iu'ilii-n, was one which was  ;.bar;i-_-ie:islic, and '"lu-5tiar.es. in a  \er*. h'appy, way, the-.-wonderful  wis'loui., of which nienlir-n".'-has  ieer- made, wjiieh II cr-. late'Majesty  so o:';en sho'ved:,we refer, ofeoarse,  to thi- rev ewof the Royal Canadian  Regiment which' had just returned  from Souih Africa.  If there was a chord to be sti uck,  which woidd touch the hearts of  her Coio ;, ,1 suhjcc:s al any time,  Queen. Victoria was ever aleit, aud  only-tor* ready u do all she co-.ild so  as t'> bring herself and. her. suhjects  into closer toach. Her love for lier  subjects' was, if po.��.sible, deeper  than thiit jt\ their love for her, and  we, iu Canada, shall never forget  that we were privileged to live as  s bjects of "iich a good and noble  Sovereign. ���  There are many changes  to take  If 1! tf\i -. ; the coming - months, neces-  S}si;ucl   'iv the  Q.ieen's  death, but  a wc      ���- ���-!-���. ot   to  discuss them  ih  th.ls i.itieL-.   There is one, however.  hut   we' hope  will   not take place,.  and   that  is, any   interference with  ihe   24th of May,   the  birthday of  Victoria.      As   children    we   were  taught, to   respeel   it. in youth  we  earned     to"   reverence     it, 1^  and  is   men    and     women    we ..have  ever' loved il.'

When a   claim   is   laid   over   for  I want of sufficient supply   of  water,  or for   any   reason,   notice   of this  fact should be   posted  on   the  four|  corner stakes for the belter informa-  | tion of those concerned.

It is lo be hoped that the government will sob 11  reframe   the   Placer  Mining  Act   which.iu   its  present  shape is notoriously  unsatisfactory  We understand thai it was   the   in  teittiou last year to appoint   a com  mission to draft a  new   Act   but   as  to what has actually   been   done in  this connection the public   has   not  8"been advised. 11 is very necessary  to appoint such a commission with  out delay, a commission that can  get out a workable Act to. supplant  the wretched' .piece of legislation  under which alluvial niining is today conducted,.  Among the more important-points  requiring attention in .the new Act  are, we think, the following:  All distinctions such as  "creel-  "bench" or "bar"  should   be done  away with, and the size of all placer  claims should be 250 feet.sqnare.  In o:der to do away with the con  fusion .- arising    from    the   present  method all claims should   be   given  the full christian name and surname  of the locator.  ,If any free miner or party of tree  miners discovers a new mine and  such discovery 'shall be established  to the satisfaction of the  Recorder  size should be allowed, viz.  To one discoverer, one claim 500  feet square.  To a 'parly    of two   discoverers  two claims, amounting together   to  1 poo feel in length by 500   feet     in  width.  To each member of a- party beyond two in number a claim of the  ordinary size only.  The Gold Commissioner or Mining Recorder should loith with post  culside his office, for public in-  1, a notice giving full particulars in regard to location of  my discovery claim awarded.  A free miner locating a placer  claim should be required to define  its boundaries by erecting a legal  post at each corner of his claim, on  each of "which/posts should be written the dale of location and the  name of the locator with the number and dale of "issue of his Free  Certificate The locator  ilso be required lo erect  cg'tlf posts or mounds, not more  than aue hundred feet apart, between the corner prists, or to blaze  the lines if iu a limbered loealitv.  t  Section 23 should 1>2 amended so  as to allow the locator or" the placer  claim Jifteen days after staking in  which lo prospect and record the  samr if tbe claim be located within  leu miles, of the Office of the Mining  Recorder.
