Fbays, etc.:^tbe pfcn mip"t'b^us^dwithpo-d  success for dredging harbors, docks, etc., He  had used itio.seventy feet deep of water. :   :'  If the above remarks arc warranted,-: we  see no reasou why such a machine might-not  take the place of the ordinary dredging* machine for harbors, etc.     The'principal ,pn  Iwhich it'is constructed would seem to admit  M a more economical elevation of dock mud  than those on; which that substance isK.irbw  brought to the surface. ;.;       t.; pi  Moreover, when gold is contained m the  loose sandsof-river beds,' as it.qften is,atfd:on  the sea beach, us at Gold Bluff, it might (be  worked byv hand or horse power. The exr  pease of such an apparatus need riot be heavy.  In answer to some objections, with regard  to the utility of snefe a machine for gold working suggested by a member, Mr. Johnson,  who introduced-the model.to theattention of  the association, remarked that he was sar-  giiine of the success of the enterprise:-ipr<thq|  work to certain localities^, for instance;: iK  tbe Chattahoochee river, He had'workedihe.  sauds in that river for gold ���������andfound^he previousmetal in the loose as well as. the closely  packed or dead sand.

He made  tbem readily enough wheu he had struck his  bargain.   At this time he was confined in Newgate (modern prison discipline had not then  found its way into that gaol) in a cell with a  bricklayer'and a sweep ; in which polite company he was actually recognised, through a  strange chance, by Mr. Procter and Mr. Mac-  ready, visiting.the prison.

WILLIAMS CREEK  A  Romantic .Stout���������Nearly a year ago  one of tbe first merchants in the city met and  loved a" woman of English birth, whom he  believed to be a widow.   His advances were  favorably received, and after many happy  hours passed in pleasant converse, the gentleman at length declared his passion.   To his  surprise and chagrin,, the lady, with mauy  tears* informed him that her husband was not  dead.   A long story of unkindncss, neglect,  maltreatment, and a separate maintenance  was related. ��������� The fair one, with utmost frankness, went into, all the details of her wretched  existance,-and ended by hoping a: divorce  suit, then pending, would terminate in her  favor.   The gentleman, .encouraged by :the  confidence, and eager for the possession of  such a treasure, insisted on her at once :de-  parting for England, and bountifully supplied  the  lubricating material for the rusty machinery of the courts.   The journey was made  and in the course of a few weeks the baga-  tel lie of, t\ye\ve thbusandydollars. ���������was expended. ; Nofclmany moons eiapsed ;ere the.. loVer  was favored with a most tender epistle, conveying Inteliigenee in the ; postscrip t, of another, draft for ten thonsand dollars, which he  would of course pay on'.-,-presentation.    The,  business of the law proved exceedingly expensive.   Two more drafts wore forwarded to  this country for'. ten .thousand dollars each  and promptly paid.   The gentleman, becoming alarmed at the enormous drain on his  purse, yentured to remo nstratc, and b egged  the lady, if possible, to conduct tbe business  with more economy.   The comuiuiiication in  reply, dated Paris, quietly informed him that  the suit had been decided against her, and,  although she could not forget the disinterested friendship of the kindest of men, they must  never meet again. on earth.   The unhappy  gentleman, maddened at his folly, and crippled in business by the immense outlay . of  money, ended his existance by his own hand.

We have seen the .occasional efforts to work  claims'-in past winters; become a general practice accompanied by the most satisfactory results.    We have seen the prospects of the  mines/gradually increasing and  constantly  brightening, and quartz-crushing about to be  permanently introduced.   We have seen tbe  . Uncomfortable and repulsive hovels.of past  years, with their leaking roofs and nnchinked  walls,give place to comfortable and attractive cabins, with stoves instead of smoking  chimneys.. We have seen many sleighs running to and fro continually, aad have been  daily cheered by the merry jingle of the bells.  I We have seen the partial introduction of more  * comfortable  and   fashionable clothing���������fur  Aiaps, capes, and overcoats:    We have witnessed the fantastic dance and tbe heartless  smiles.   We have listened to the lively music  nightly, and have spmpathised deeply with  tan votaries afflicted by that common disease  of manhood situated somewhere in the region  ot their vest watch-pockets.   We have visited  the saloons, in which lie bottled the elements.  of maduess and of wisdom and those "spirits"  that disturb us with the joys of elated thought,  aad have seen but order and decorum.     We  have frequented many hermitages that were  not too large nor too cold for sociality, where  ambition dilating in the convivial space, shaped dreams of enterprise, labor and wealth;  where were unio3ked the choicest stores of  memory in which lie the treasures that make  life happy, and enjoyed that satisfaction which  bnmpers might heighten but could not destroy.  We have descended to those artificial caverns  . where water, the natural enemy, is continual-  Jy threatening a second deluge, and have seen  the sweat upon the brow of the sturdy miner, j  who believes that in the mines, as in the grave, '  all men are eqnal.   Our jail has'been ejnpty  during the winter, although most of our doors,  are  without locks and our locks   without  strength.   We have adapted ourselves to a  new magistracy which we were as unwilling  to receive as we are now to change.   Five  deaths���������one by accident, two from exposure,  and two from natural causes, and two births  have marked our register during the segment  of a year through which we have conducted  this journal.   We are disturbed by the sound  of the hammer and the axe continually heard  in repairing and extending this town and constructing' the first buildings in th������ district in  which architecture has directed the mechanic;  and we now see a town, once nearly deserted,  without a lot to sell or a house to let  We. are unwilling however that the last  should be. an uncertain sound. We have refrained with care from lending any hand to  create ah excitement'for this year. 20,000  men all over Ujc world yet believe, \l that' this  is a fine country to live out of," and we have  no desire to add to tbe number. The winter  residents have by labor and capital lived up  to the;r prospects, and certainly they had tbe  best rl^ht to do so, and if our eo-tenaporam^  or the Chambers of Commerce or the f? vei n-  raent are instrumental in creating a "rush", to  the upper country, they may live to see returning hundreds curse them and the country.  Patience is a virtue; but it would be worse  than rashness for those who know least about  the prospects and capacities of our, mines, to  force a discontented surplus of emigration  upon those who know most about them. We  want 500 men and half a million dollars for  thw year, and nothing more. .  It cannot be reasonably expected that the  yield of gold for this year will be more than  twice what it was last year or about $2,090,000  An excited "rush-f would therefore fail entirely to see the foundation on which, we are  building our hopes of prosperity; they wonld  know nothing of the elfect upon our market,  of the 200 tons of ttour which we expect next  fail from the Soda'Creek Mills, made from  wheat raised and ground in the same degree  of latitude as that in which we live ; nor of  the 30 tons of hay which we expect from  .Steeps .rancb.,,.withiJi 4 miles.M.this.town; nor  of the hundreds of hogs new being fed in the  upper country for the Cariboo. market.. And  they would know and care as little about the  number ofminers who have resolved-to invest their first "raised-in stock-raising in tlie  colony, and of the many worthy men who  purpose making mining their profession for  life and this colony their adopted home. Yet  although the present prospects of the mines  are so gi*eat as to warrant they Treasury at  New Westminster and the; Auction rooms at  Victoriato lower their flags < of distress, we  are even yet compelled, in justice to all, to  recommend the cultivation of a heaithy doubt  Not in cowardice or through fear, but in  the spirit of that " charity which covereth ,a  multitude of sins," do we resign our seat without, referring to the vices and. ;short comings  that have passed under our notice, as tbey are  not of us although amongst us, and shpuld  rather come under the notice of the Sentinels  of the ^Gospel, who have shamefully "deserted  theirpostV .. -. ;" '-'-'.-/���������'������������������ "y{yp:.  .

The town has extended  up to ihe China buildings at the upper'end,  and it cannot be extended down stream further unless by building upon piles, on account  of the street beiug so high 'above the creek.  It has become a fact within the last six weeks  that the site ha3 become too small for the  town. The principal buildings of Cameron-  . ton have been removed to: Barkerville, and  many new buildings are being built, and some  (,-of the old ones undergoing repairs. Layton's  large saloon has been removed from Cameron-  ton and reconstructed into the Hotel de France  ���������ona site opposite the Express office. This  hotel is-got up on the same plan as the Colonial, at New Westminster, but is much larger,  and we have no doubt it will be well conducted. Immediately adjoining is Mr. Pen-  fold's saloon, which is built new trora the  foundation, and is elegantly finished, consisting of the saloon containing bar and billiard table, and two smaller rooms finely aud  comfortably furnished. The New El Dorado  saloon is to undergo thorough repairs shortly.  The Fashion saloon has become a mammoth  -affair;; the ;.Gb.?at-em saloon has been purchased and converted into a billiard room;by the  proprietors of the Fashion, and. connected to  the main building by an arched portal; a new  floor has been laid for the better accomoda?  ; tion of the:lovers of the p liget fantastic," and  a number, of new rooms have been fitted up in  ytheirear ^of^ttiis saloon ;-t&e'pr6pnetors^&  shipping from San Francisco; the most ^fanciful fittings and fixtures. G. L. Shep herd has  placed a building at the lower end  facing up the street/ and adorned with an elaborate front; the building is-intended for a  ��������� shop andresidence,y Mr.Clark iserecting'a  large building in thev centre of the town. ��������� It  is to be hoped that in the midst of so much  improvement the sidewalks, will not be forgotten, as they are in a most disgraceful condition, and are little better than a series of  man-traps, especially at night; by economising the old lumber it would not cost much to  construct new side-walks, which would only  be in keeping with the rapid progress of the  place. There are at present in this town 12  Saloons, 10 Stores, 3 Shoemakers shops, 3 Restaurants, 3 Lodging Houses, 2 Bank Agencies,  2 Drug Stores, 2 Watchmakers Shops, 2 Brew-  ��������� eries, 2 Tin Shops, 2 Blacksmith Shops, I Express Office, 2 Carpenter Shops, 1 Post Office,  1 Printing Office, 1 Public Library, 1 Paint  Shop, 1 Clothing Store, 1 Butcher's Stall, and  1 Public Stable.  ^^"-Mr. H. C. Wilmott, our enterprising  Expressman, has now two sleighs on the road  between Richfield and Cameronton, one for  drawing wood Ac'., tbe other for the accomodation of passengers,and Express matter. He  will also make regular trips to Grouse creek  during the rest of the winter. Mr. Wilmott's  obliging manner commendshim to the patron^  Ago of the public; '-��������� . '*  MINING INTELLIGENCE.  MINING BOARD.  WILLIAMS CREEK.  - The warm days in the beginning of \M  week were follo'wed by a rain on V/ednesday  night, which begun the spring freshet. On  Thursday morning the usual roar -of the creek  and tbe noise of many waters running down  the hill side were encouraging, and in a few  days there will be more than enough of water,  which for a week or two will be as obstructive to some claims as the scarcity of water  was. Many claims, especially the hill-side  ones, willfoe able to .work immediately, and  they are ail .prepared to work. The United  Co., Conklins* Gulch, has been preparing for  the last two weeks. The wheel of tbe Davis  Co. has been exercising itself for the last few  days, audits position is so conspicuous that  its revolutions are a general indicator of tbe  working season. The companies along the  line of the drain seem to be alive to their interests, and have begun to cutout the channel  of the creek which has/been obstructed by  tailings deposited during the winter months:  the work was beguu at the lower end of the  Raby Co.'s flume and continued on upwards.  There is not much danger of the drain below  that point.  The freshet has begun tme month earlier  this year than it did last season, and however  unexpected its artival, it is very acceptable.  Prairie Fiower Co. have struck a good prospect. The other companies are working and  paying about as they were at the time of our  last report.  There was great excitement on this creek  about a week ago, caused by a simultaneous  effort made to to discover the "lead" both  above and below tbe Heron claim. The Black  Hawk and Canadian Cos., situated on the upper line of the Heron Co.'s ground, opened  up old shafts that they had sunk laft fall and  began work. Black Hawk Co. are running  an incline from their shaft, and the Canadian  Co. are drifting in an unknown direction, and  although both companies have beeu working  in the immediate vicinity of the channel nei  ther of them has yet reported a 'prospect1 be  low the Heron Co.'s ground, and about opposite to the Hard up Co.'s tunnel. The Water-1  Witch Oo. sunk a shaft near the centre of  the creek, and in' drifting towards the left-  hand side found deep ground, which created  no little excitement for a few days ; but the  supposed channel proved to be. one of those  undulations which,created the excitement in  the Hard-up Co.'s tunnel several weeks ago.  The Jewellers Shep Co. are now sinking au  intermediate shaft between their old one and  the shaft of the Water-Witch Co. in search of  the same *.' lead." It is beginning to appear  morelik������ly than ever that the Heron Co. shall  have worked out the whole of the "lead,"  through-gronnd a distance of nearly 1000ft.,  before it shall have been found either above  or below'their side lines.   Such is mining!  KEITH LEYS  CUE EC.   ,'.  The Anglo-American Hydraulic Co.leave the  beginning of this week, with hose and provisions. The shareholders are very sanguine  of success.

The following resolutions were then read:  Resolved���������" That the Cariboo Mining Board  after having been officially called together  on March 25th by a warrant of the Gold Com  missioner dated March 10th, in order to receive a communication from him relative tc.  the Grouse Creek Bed Rock Flume Co., and  having learned that a public notice was post  ed by ������rder of said Gold Commissioner, two  days previous to said meeting, giving official  notice of the particulars of the grant made to  the said Flume Co.. consider that tbe conduct  of the GoldCommissioner in this instance ha?  been highly disrespectful to the Mining Board  and prejudicial to the mining community in  general." :  Resolved���������" That the tenor of the-comma  nidation from the Gold Commissioner undei  date of March 26th refusing to give particu  lars of his/instructions from tlie Colonial Secretary '(highly unsatisfactory." '  Resolved-���������" That the Mining Board consider that the grant or concession made,Tor  said to lie made, by the Colonial Secretary-.to  the Grouse Creek Bed Rock Flume Co., is illegal and.thoroughly contrary to the spirit ot  the mining laws. The;Mitifirg Board having  already .protested against any extension of  privileges to the Flume Co., a company which  has entirely failed to comply wtth tbe terms  of its charter, consider also that if such grants  are to be made by the Colonial Secretary or  any other person unauthorized by the laws of  this colony; both Mining Laws and Mining  Boards are utterly useless.  Mr. MacLaren opposed these resolutions.  The first���������On the grounds that the communication of the Gold Commissioner referred to  was only one of information regarding a matter that ^had been finally settled by; iW Gov-  ment.

One day he invited them to a splendid  feast at his villa; he placed before them the  most costly meats and the choicest, win es;  They were sitting around this luxurious.table  somewhat excited by drink, when the emperor arose and said; with a peculiar smile;���������  rtImiist go now to prepare for you an  agreeable surprise and practical joke, which  you will confess has the merit of originality."  He left the room, and the tipsy senators did  not observe that the doors were locked and  bolted from without. They continued to drink  and sing merrily. Suddenly a glass door in  the ceiling was opened, and the voice of He-'  liogabalus was heard, saying,  " You were never satisfied with-your power  and glory, you were always aspiring after new  laurels, this noble thirst shall be-.satisfied."   ���������  A torrent of laurel wreaths and branches  .aow^'eJL^ At first they  laughed, aV^S33%*oS7^^n?l!r-:^ '$&wffyHTg  laurels.

Higher  and higher rose the walls around them; tbey  could no;longer even plead- for. pity ; tbey  were literally buried indaurais. At last nothing was, to be seen but a vast bed of roses,  of. which not even a fragrant.leaf.was stirred  by a passing breeze.

The pROSEit.���������This is a man of slow genius  or rather no genius, who,yet likes to hear him-  . self fcalk.    With; an imperfectly developed  " language faculty, and a confused intellect, he  is quite unconscious of his own proper vocation,-which is that of a listener, who should  limit himself to uttering at the right time an  intelligent *EeaUy!''Indeed!' You don't say  so I &c.' BuVhe is 'dissatisfied with the position which Nature* lias assigned to. him, is ambitious of shining and being listened to, and  will have his Word in us well as the others.  He begins with due solemnity, drawls out  what he has to say in the most tiresome manner, and usually in a dull leaden tone of voice  itself oppressive,^ pendantically affectsa.min-  utts logical subdivision of his subject,; hems  'and haws frightfully, gets into the most tedious digressions, expands upon fifty   minor  points of the least importance in'his story, de-  liberalelypituscs, and keeps the company  waiting until he can callkto recollection some  trifle of no consequence, such as the street  dumber of a house, often does not appreciate  the real point of his argument or narrative,  but misses it, or slurs it over confusedly, and  ends���������when he does' reach that blessed stage  of his maundering���������with some most lame and  unimportant conclusion.    With a happy ob-  tnseness and conceit, and an energy, de term i-  ���������: nation, and perseverance that might be admired in a better eause, he pursues the even  tenor of his way, perfectly unconscious that  i.n;itheis the biggest of bores, and quite regardless of inattention, indifference, antl-ih-  tetTuptions���������which are not judicious.

The result was that his application was  granted. He raised his sign: " Entertainment  for man and beast," and from that hour his  traffic fell off.. In two years time he disappeared from the list of landlords of the country, and the sign was removed. Our informant asked him,���������  " What in the name of common sense induced you to ask for a license?"  " I had most excellent reasons for the application. Before I raised my sign, I had lots  of cousins, more than I bad any idea of, to  visit me, to feed their horses, themselves, and  stop over night. As soon as I hung out my  sign my cousins began to fall off, and in a  year or more not one-came to see me.
