I  at once gave the order to back her, but before  I could utter./the..' com maud, the cou founded  -cayuse ran into a wood pile, and burst a hole  with her figurehead!n one of the windows of  the house of Braily; Bros., at the saw mill. I  backed off. and the only explanation I could  ���������offer for a disaster which no human skill, experience or precaution could bave prevented,  "was that it arose from the local attraction of  the mill machinery ; the boys wore satisfied.  Sounded the well/water in hold as usual :  made short stretches-until daylight, between  Barney Ray's ranch and Peter Farley's, then  .came to anchor, took cross bearings, and:disco vered a local variation of 2i points, less or  more ���������; observed an azimuth to find the difference  in degrees between Mag's  pole and  Polly's,  everything  in/ apple   pie   order;;  weighed anchor, and shaped my course for  Spuzzum lighthouse, where I arrived in a few  hours.   The keeper of this house, little Frank,  was delighted to see me arrive safe after my  miraculous escape from becoming  a total  wreck among breakers at the saw mill.   He  was very kind, furnishing me with ail the necessaries to continue the voyage, on a bottomry bond, although he said his principle  generally was to do business on a cash basis;  however, he felt well satisfied, the cayuse  was good security.   The next place I brought  "up at was Chapman's bar ; this bar is well  buoyed, there being two, one called Lu and  thc other Al, which points to the stranger the  deepest water.    In crossing this bar, you  leave Lu on your starboard hand ; luff up  two points, run in a direct course for Al,  when you will An A yourself in safe anchorage.      Craft  drawing  considerable   water,  bounduip, very often kedge over the bar.  In  order to discover whether or not the iron  bound coast I was sailing along would cause  a variation locally,! carried my magnetic  companion to the top of Boston Bar mountain, and then climbed the highest tree, with  *t tell tale at the base, and in this extraordinary elevation coitld see no difference between  the apex and the base, with regard to bearing.   Boston Bar is a safe harbor, and well  sheltered ; I shall stop here for a few days,  a am staying ashore at the saloon of the  the French consul, who is always happy to  wait upon his guests.   Barnard's regular mail  packet, collect on delivery, Capt. S. Tingly,  arrived here this afternoon, having on board  His Excellency Governor Seymour and suite,  going to Cariboo on business of importance.  Dear Sir,���������I have hitherto had no news  worth reporting, and have consequently been  unable to act as your correspondent in these  parts.. A complete stagnation of everything  like business has paralyzed this section, owing partly to high wttieiS',-and partly to want  of means, where no, credit could be obtained.  Miners ou Tranquil river and Scotch, creek,  have had a hard time of it. The prospect is,  however, .brightening; the yield growing  from S2 '50 and $3 to $7 per diem���������������uprat  makes this last amount. Tom Bright and co.  were just about completing their hydraulic,  having had to wait for nails from Yale. All  business is done for cash'/and several hundred dollars of dust has made its way down.  On Scotch creek they keep steadily at it, but  what they make they keep very quiet, All  we know is, tbey pay in nice 1 oozing/gold,  very like Lowhee dust. From Cherry Creek  silver mine the news is. good, so much so that,  several" extra hands have been engaged from  Kamloops and Seymour; the favorable results of the assays below, and tho rich indications up here,are giving great confidence-,  and stimulating the works. There are several parties prospecting for silver, indications  of which have been found iu several places ;  amongst others, hear Scotch creek. We have  heard nothing irom the /prospecting party  who wentup the north fork,, and no news we  interpret as..good news.. yThey would.hatel  ^;een^b*ackNlong >^  not struck something ; they: were we-jl provided with all necessaries. .The crops arc  very fine ; the wheat on Martin's farm is a*  perfect picture ; the spring wheat is over six  feet high, the fall wheat (our, and well headed  out. At the Okanagon, by last accounts, the  wheat was beautitul, especially on Chapphvs  ranch. Never were these hills so green, nor  feed so plentiful : warm showers have kept  everything growing. The crop on Doc's.,  Boston's, and Cornwall's farms, never looked  more promising. We have just received good  news ; Mr. Bissett, one of the most enlightened and indefatigable officers of the Hudson  Bay Company, has discovered a pass by the  South Arm, to the Columbia, which will be  twelve miles .snorter, although debouching  lower than the SeymouV route. It is. only  four hundred feet higher; than the lake, perfectly level on the'top, and will be therefore  free from snow early in the season. .It isvalso  said that Mr. Bissett will prospect, on his return! a trail from Kamloops by Green lake to  Williams creek. Not only is this route  shorter than the wagon. road, but their  steamer will be able to ascend the north fork  a considerable distance. Yours truly,  ���������y Savana.

The latter reports, made by a messenger sent  up by the Adelaide government, contradicted  in to to these favorable accounts. That there  is gold in those ranges seems tolerably certain, but their distance and the want of water  will be serious obstacles in the way of extensive or systematic rainiug in such a region.

Last season we placed before Our readers,  "our views in relation to the most practicable  manner of reaching the vast wealth which  lies buried beneath the " Meadows," in the  lower portion of Williams creek, and later  experience has only .tended to confirm us in  the opinion then expressed, >��������� /Tbat the mineral riches above referred to,%ill be disinterred sooner or later, we do hot entertainNtbe  least doubt; = it is only unfortunate that enterprising capitalists are not to be found at  the present moment to undertake the work.  An enormous amount of wealth is thus' lying  dormant, that would otherwise give ^another  aspect to the entire colony.   A similar, but  much more attainable scheme, is the one of  which we are about to treat, touching the exploration of the Willow river mines ; that,.  excepting the attempt to which wo shall presently refer, have been entirely neglected.  Of all tbe streams in this vicinity, this river  is the recipient of the greatest number of auriferous tributaries, in proportion to its size,  and from all we can learn from those familiar  with, its entire course,; is undoubtedly the depository of a. vast ��������� amounts of the precious  metal.   The great objection-to its being'pro-  I.  perly tested, has been the apparent difficulty  of coping with the water ;/but this obstacle  /  is more imaginary than ��������� real, with our improved appliances^ and late experience.   The  'only attempt made to prospect the bed of the  stream occurred some years ago, when a company expended about $15,000 in cutting a tail  race^sawing lumber, building a wheel, etc.,  -but after sinking about fifty feet in their shaft,  'they found the water to be^in greater force  than they calculated on j.anbV despairing of  getting down, they abandoned the enterprise.  Boubtless the company   thc>u*ght  they had  done all that they,-were justified in doing,  . with the limited experience then possessed by  our miners, but in these days they would  have been laughed at", if they had expended  . eo much money and time, and: accomplished  so little.   The fact is tbey: did not take advantage of what most of bur miners would  now avail themselves (particularly those who  have had much mining experience in California) the placing of a dam in the stream, so -as  to carry the water to the opposite side from  that where they   purposeid^sipking.     This  Z' could /be - easily - done on^^illqwJTi.v'er,vas i t  possesses iii many places/' suMcientfall, and  : "numerous low bars well.adapted for that pur-  i   pose, 'and; always contains, a igood .useful  , body; of-water.   That the ground-is rich,there  "can be no doubt, as rich prospects have been  obtained whenever, a pan of dirt has been  tried, near tbe high bed rock.    The facilities  for achieving success on Willow river, are  inuch better than on Williams creek, supposing the same mode of operations were followed as in California, afc least in relation to the  high rock, on which there are excellent indications of good pay.  By diverting the stream  by means of dams, the portions of the river  thus  left dry, could be-easily worked by  means of wheels and tail races, and when exhausted, the river diverted to suit the position of the altered work.   That portion of the  stream immediately below its confluence with  Williams creek, is peculiarly adapted for this  system of mining, and if examined by any  miner who had  previously worked in tbat  way, the fact would  be at once apparent.  The extent of ground tbat could thus be  brought in to/.profitable  working, would  employ hundreds of miners, for years to come,  bo tbat we have here another instance of the  want of energy on  the part of our  workmen,  ���������otherwise the late  complaints about the lack  of employment would not have been heard in  our community.   Let us again impress on  our people  that no men  need be idle in  this  country, who have the will to work.   There  are plenty of places like Willow river, where  by a little well applied industry, a man may  realize   good   remuneration for   his labor.  Of course it will be fully worked in time, but  like soldiers, our miners require a leader,and  any company with means sufficient to  open  profitable one, we have not tbe slightest reason to doubt, and would offer a notable contrast to certain monopolies that we could  point out, with which this country is trammeled,  and the miner sacrificed.   We do not  fbr a moment expect that the poor miner who  is without the means of procuring the necessaries of life, will be first to form the company we speak of, although its formation will  be for his especial benefit.   It must be organized by our merchants and tradesmen,  who will subscribe each for a small number  of shares, and so enable tbe men to pay off  old scores, and buy their goods for cash.   It  is a/great mistake for our traders to allow  men to be idle, when there is   scope for  employment, and profit to themselves, within  reach.   The risk to each would not exceed  the average of the too numerous amounts lost  as bad debts, by miners unable to pay, from  want of employment.    For their own protection and advantage, our  merchants should  start some such scheme ; calls might be paid  in provisions, or tools, so that the investment  would be profitable in every way.   These  suggestions not only apply to tbe schemes we  have already suggested to our readers, but  numerous other schemes, such as flumes, and  extensive hydraulic operations, for the profitable working of which we have plenty of  plans to offer.   Our desire to see all our  miners earning good wages, has caused us to  spy Tome w baT "from "6 i ir texT, *ari<T'we how  return to the hidden treasures of Wil low river  which we strongly urge our readers to.keep  well   before   their   attention.     The; small  streams and gulcbe3 that have been for ages  pouring their waters into, that river, have  been also  carrying the disintegrated gold of  the neighboring mountains into its bed.   The  gold is of a very superior  quality, being  of the same value as thajt of Lowhee, and we  leave, our  readers to judge  of the  great  amount of. money that is ready to be brought  to the surface, so soon as the requisite Tabor  shall be applied.   We would also-point out  the advantage of commencing operations at  the present stage .of the water, which could  be dammed  so much more easily now, than  at an earlier part of the season.   The expenditure, apart from labor, would be a mere  trifle, and the materials are readily obtainable on the spot.  .We must say that we lose  much of our sympathy for traders who will  not avail themselves of the best method of  securing ready money customers, by a small  investment j and this last, a profitable one..  been destroyed by fire.���������Messrs. Hunter and  Dick have got the contract for putting down  the new bore on Chase river plains, near  Nanainio.���������A very bright meteor was observed on the evening of the first inst, which  shot across the eastern horizon with great rapidity, emitting a blue and yellow light.

Our  impression is, however, that the best way to  secure the proper utilization of the Willow  river mines, will be by the formation of a  company with a capital sufficient for the purpose, divided into shares of moderate amount  say $20 paid up. Thus our citizens generally^  would participate, and the capital be raised  evert beyond our district. The company  should then employ a foreman or manager,  with all the requisite knowledge and exper  rience, who would take a reasonable number  of the shares ; and the workmen would also  take a proportion, in payment for their labor.

YConvinced as 1 am that the report, as]  chronicled in your paper, is a true and faithful one, I am constrained to confess that I am  utterly mystified; b^; the course;adopted, the  rules of law; laid down, and the doctrines  ehunciated by our worthy resident magistrate  and. Gold' Commissioner oh that occasion^  The facts connected with the case are simply  as follows:  lii A party of free miners localfcd A- certain  piece of ground on Grouse creek, oil the 25th  July last, under the title of the Bpartpwhawk  Co., recorded their claim iii proper form as  prescribed by law, and went to work,thereon ; and I do hot hesitate to affirm that the  said Sparrowhawk Co. has continued to hold  J possession ofxand work the ground in question, from the date of their record until the  present moment, without let or, bin derail ce  from any party or. parties whatever ; cbhse-  quently the Sparrowhawk Co. have never been; before the court^ and knowing as I do that  they are an industrious party of men, I will  not \at present interrupt their legitimate avocations., by.further,.dragging. Xheirvbefore the  public.  Now sir, I am aware that Christians of  every denomination believe that the ceremonies prescribed by the Mosaic code have long  become obsolete, and I have hitherto held the  opinion that their observance was not commanded either by the mining laws of this colony or the common law of Great Britian;  but in the case above referred to, it would  appear that the Jewish code has been again  revived; a sacrifice must be made, and the  unfortunate Canadian Co. is selected as the  scapegoat for the sins of the people.  It seems that an affidavit was made and filed in the Gold Commissioner's court by one  Isaiah M. Sparrow, alleging that certain parties, who he believed were members of the  Canadian Co., were working on ground belonging to the Grouse Creek Flume Co.; from  a perusal of this affidavit, I conclude that a  considerable portion of it is based upon what  is commonly called " hearsay " evidence, as  when a man says or swears he has been told  and verily believes a certain thing to be the  case. On-the strength of this affidavit, backed by a motion made by Geo. A. Walkem,  Barrister-at-������aw, an injunction was Issued out  of the .Gold;."��������� Commissioner's court'at Richfield, addressed 'to the Canadian Co.; (1: presume as a body); aiid to certain individuals  specially named and to all other parties whatsoever or whomsoever, restraining them from  working on the ground claimed by the Flume  Co.    ~    -.     :.���������:.;. ��������� ���������,.. .    ;���������  On this injunction being, served, Mr. Murdoch and myself waited upon Mr. Commissioner Ball, and protested against the legality  or regularity of issuing an injunction against  a company that was hot interfering with the  ground, or against any individual parties,  when it was A fact obvious to the most obtuse; intellect, that the parties working the  ground were doing so by authority of the  Sparrowhawk C6., and that there was ho one  in possession of any portion of it under."any  other title than that of the Sparrowhawk Co.,  acquired legally, by location, record, and  representation.  * Mr. Ball, at that interview, evinced a desire  that a motion should be made to set the injunction aside, and that the case should be  argued by counsel before him. Although  conscious of the illegality and absurdity of  the order or injunction as against themselves,  and contrary to the; advice of counsel, the  Canadian Co., with no other object than as  far as possible to comply with the orders of  the Court, and the wishes of the Gold Commissioner, appeared by counsel, on Saturday,  17th inst. You have already reported the  proceedings, and I now take the liberty of  examining tho evidence, and commenting  upon the decision.  1st���������I am at a loss to know what was the  object in dragging the Canadian Co. into the  affair at all. " ��������� ' .; .     -.  2nd���������I am anxious to iearii where the law  is to bo found that; authorizes a Gold Commissioner to issue sweeping injunctions  against whole communities, on the strength  of an affidavit made up of hearsay evidence,  and without any action pending either in law  or equity. "���������     '    .  3rd���������Is the evidence of Murdoch, Springer  and Booth, sufficient to prove that the Canadian Co. are not parties to holding or working the ground in dispute'?  4th��������� Did L M. Sparrow, on his cross-examination, or any other party, produce any evidence to show that the Canadian Go. were  directly or indirectly interested in the work-  in^ df the ground in dispute ? Or did Sparrow, Or any other party, at any time, produce  any evidence to weaken or set aside the evidence bf Murdoch, Springer and myself ?  6th���������You state that the judge weighed the  arguments in tho case;   My experience has  taught me that the weighing of; evidence is  paramount to the weighing or arguments, in  the" duties of a judge; i  x 6th���������Mr. Ball's lucid; explanation as to ihe  rights of parties to, and the powers of in-  junctfqhs, is doubtlessvery icorrect and instructive ; -butpas ��������� ��������� the Canadian; Co> sets uj)  notitle at present tb;;;l&  the present injunction; or aiiy.- responsibiiity  attached thereto, cannot possibly apply to  them.

But altboughj at present mystified, I feel disposed to place implicit ^reliance;on any ppin-  ion expressed by a1 Gold Commissioner.  Should; however, any person unclothed;with  magisterial authority, tell me that legal; titles  can possibly emanate from siich a; source, I  should hold his opinion on British law or justice in very smalf esteem.  8thr-rrfhey Canadian Co. did not ���������care  whether the injunction; was set aside or ���������. confirmed, hbr do they at present trouble them-  selvcs-ft)>eut"kj''a5' ft'yfc no-wfty-je^eeta^h^mr -  9th���������-Mr. Ball rules that the Sparrowhawk  Co. should bring an action of. ejectment  against the Flume Co.; but in the name of  common sense, why should they do so? They  are at present working their ground without  molestation, while the Flume Co. have nbt attempted to work or represent it since the 20th  July, five days before the date of tbe Spar  rowhawk Co';'s.. record. The Flume Co.'s  charter balls for continuous working during  the mining season, but although no attempt  was made to interfere with their title to the  piece of ground now held by the Sparrow-:  hawk Co., they, by failing to represent it,  virtually abandoned it; there are hundreds  of claims in Cariboo which have been legally  held and afterwards abandoned, and if every  taking up such a claim again, were compel^  ed to bring actions of ejectment against every  previous oumer, there would be no end to li  tigation or no virtue in the law regarding  forfeiture, of title by abandonment.  And now one word in conclusion, touching  the tirade of abuse lavished on tho members  of the Canadian Co. ; The incalculable amount of falsehoods vended about them and  their actions, the; bloodthirsty counsel unasked for given to the. Government relative  to them by the Colonist, Columbian, and Examiner, I can only say that the members of  the Canadian Co. sympathise with the conductors of tbe abovenamed journals, feeling  confident that ignorance alone could have iu-  duced those gentlemen voluntarily to place  themselves in such a false and;. ridiculous  position, and while pitying their credulity,  they sincerely regret that honest men should  allow themselves to be so easily made the  tools of designing knaves ; aud that any portion of a press presumed to be the exponents  of truth and pure and; indep en dent advocates  of justice, could be. prostituted to / such ; ignoble ends'. Property, liberty, yea probably  even life are at stake in this contest, and woe  be to the party;on whose side truth; and justice are not found when the daiy of reckoning  Domes.;".; -.Z"       .
