condition and prospects. It is probable, bow-
ever, that the total amount of business done
will be largely increased by tbe competition,
as is tbe casein this country, and even in tbe
event-. of tbe competing companies doing a
profitable business, tbe revenues of tbe Montreal Company will not be seriously affected.
As hy far the greatest portion of the Montreal- Company ?s: business is done upon a- 25
be n t tariff, i t would bard ly* seem to leave, a
large margin3 for profits;   It must be remem-
b ered, bo we ver, that the expense of line re*
pairs (in this opuntry a heavy item) is greatly
lessened by the substantial construction of
the lines, and interruptions are much less fre.:
qu en t than, with us��;  The,oxp euse .of dp er-
ators���another large item���is less by 25 per
icebt; and the Canadians are also iortuhate in
an exceptionally; favorable climate,   jt is
probable that this latter factum conneotioh
with tbe excel lent mechanical construction of
the lines, ib sufficient to account in a great
measure:for. the satisfactory condition of the
annual balance sheet. /   v ���
���/��� The,enterprise shown by the managers of
the Montreal Company in supplying every
portion of��� their territory, however remote,
with telegraphic facilities, is worthy of warm
commendation;  The traveller who penetrates

Mr F. LyPope, telegraph: engineer of this
city, has lately returned from an extensive
tour of observation in Canada, and contributes to the Telegrapher an interestiiigirep,0_rt
upon the extent and condition of the Dominion
������-Telegraph system. y
Ifc appears tbat at the present time there are
���almost 2000 miles of wirepin operation, and
675 telegraph offices in Canada.
Tie engineering and construction'of the
Canadian telegraph lines display a great deal
of British thoroughness, together with much
of the conservatism that characterizes that
nationality. They have apparently been very
slow to adopt any of the innovations and-ini-
provem.ents of later years, but their construction everywhere Strikes the eye as being careful, substantial and durable, while tbe lines
are everywhere kept in such admirable repair
that the general result is exceedingly .satisfactory. The style of construction is nearly
everywhere the same. Cedar*polls are invariably employed. 25 to 30 feet long, and of
mucb larger size than is common in the
United States. They are placed ten rods
apart, or 32 to the mile, and so firmly set that
it is exceedingly rare to find one out of the
���perpendicular. Glass insulators are invariably employed, one being placed on a locust
pin inserted in the top of the pole, and the
others, one above another, upon brackets
nailed to the side of the pole, in the usual
way. Cross-arms are used but in rare instances, even with a great number of Wires.
Ko. 9 English galvanised wire is universally
employed. The lines of the*Montreai Company are built by a gang of men, under an
experienced foreman, who has beeu employed
by th��m for twenty years. They work during
the entire season, being provided with tents
and provisions, so that they encamp at night
wherever they may happen to finish their
day's work.
Taken altogether, tbe telegraphic system of
the Dominion impressed me as being in a very
prosperous condition. The Montreal Company pays an annual dividend of 10 per cent,
upon & .capital of $750,000. The actual cash
value of the property of the Company, bow-
ever, exclusive of franchises, etc., can hardly
be under $.1,000,000, if taken at any reasonable valuation. The competing lines have

As the details of the surrender of'Metz
come to hand, the proof accumulates of Ba-
zaine's utter unworthiriess. Want of food is
now the excuse. There was no lacking of
arms, ammunition and men. The former are
admitted to have been in abundance. In regard to men, the statement is not contradicted
by later intelligence, that one hundred and
seventy-three thousand., men surrendered!
The ad.dress of the Government Council at
Tours to the Frenoh people gives the number
i fc,one hundred and twenty t ion sand fighting
men, but they are not so well posted as those
who were witnesses of tbe surrender. Put
the number, therefore, at one hundred and
fifty thousand, and we ask, in all seriousness,
can any apology be offers 1 for the surrender ?

diers, completely armed, suffering themselves
to be cooped up for months, eating the bread
of idleness, until tbat bread was exhausted,
and then surrendering themselves without a

Would Lee ever have surrendered Richmond with,one hundred and fifty thousand
fighting men? He invaded Maryland and
fought tbe battle of Sharpsburg with 33,000
men against 80,000, and then retreated with
large spoils. At tbe battle of Fredericksburg
he repulsed, with fearful slaughter, 120,000
Federals with 25.000 men���that being the
number engaged, At Chancellorville he had
50,000 against 108,000, and would have cap.
tured the Federal army but for the accidental
shooting of Jackson. With 50,000 men he
again invaded Maryland and Pennsylvania
and fought the battle of Gettysburg against
05,000. In " The Wilderness," he opposed
50,000 ineu io M0,000.   When he sarreadered

The ���information was broughtio 'Londonderry by the only survivor, Jobn McGarfr
land, a steerage passenger.   The following is
McG-artland's narrative i-^y-'X- 'ty y       V/*y
The voyage from New York was generally
fortunate, notwithstand ing uripleasan t weather
prevailed most of the time, until the night of
Wednesday, October 19* between 10 and 11
o'clock.   The Cambria was then under sail
and steaming rapidly.   Suddenly, when all
was apparently well, she struck on Innistra-
hull Island, ten miles west of Donegal and
thirty west of Londonderry.   The vessel in-
stantlyfbegan to fill through large holes stove
in her bottom, and the fires were soon extinguished. '���.'��� '���'
It became evident that the steamer was
hopelessly lost. Efforts were made to1 save
the lives of��the passengers, who were massed
upon tbe deek. Four boats crowded with
passengers were launched and put off from
tbe sinking steamer. McGartldnd entered one
of these, and he saw no more of the ship or
the other boats. He thinks there is no doubt
all the boats were swamped, and that he is
"the only survivor. Almost instantly on getting into the boat it capsized. He lost bis
consciousness, and upon recovery found himself in the sea, but grasping the gunwale of
the boat, which righted; he succeeded in getting into the boat a second time, and found
the dead body of a lady dressed in black silk.
Mr McGartland was tossed about for many
hours, when he was picked up by the Enterprise.
Captain Gillespie cruised about the scene
of disaster for a long time in the hope of
saving life and property. McGartland says
almost at tbe very time of the disaster, the
passengers and crew were congratulating
themselves on the tempestuous voyage being
nearly finished, and rejoicing in the fact that
in one short hour they would be landed at
Moville. There were certainly 180 souls on
board, perhaps more.
A careful examination of the coasts and
waters around the scene of the Cambria dia
aster by river steamers, fails to discover any
traces ol missing boats.
The Cambria was in a sound condition and
regarded as the finest vessel on any of the
ocean lines. She was but recently rebuilt
thoroughly of iron, and was in every way
prepared for tho severest contest with wind
and wave.

railway terminus is to be, the Do minion Government will, no doubt-ae soon as the union
5s completed, take immediate steps to ascer-
lain the most suitable .locality, and it will be
time enough then to start discussion on the
Kuhject.   The terms agreed on by our delegates are fair and liberal, and the Dominion
Government should be trusted with their ex-

The above reasons, we think, fairly.explain
the cause why so large a portion of the dust
does not Ond its way to the Assay Office,- If
it w e re e v er i n te n ded or supp osed th at all the
gold produced in Cariboo was to be assayed,
then the Government would have required to
have funds on hand at'all times to purchase
dust, arid also to reduce the assay charge on
small lots. It is not probable, however, that
they will go into the purchasing line. Still
the miners consider that they have good cause
to be satisfied with the office. Thoy wish to
see it maintained, atid will willingly pay their
quota to the general taxation, of the colony
for that purpose. While as to its not being
self-supporting, if that argument were to., be
used individually against particular offices
forming component parts'of the general system of government, we should.have to abolish every department except those of the Collectors of Customs and Road Tolls aud the
Gold Commissioner for Cariboo.
