The Victoria Shanghai moved an amend-
me.nt that the words "on the' day of" be
struck out, and .that .the: words " six months

yThe Cariboo Rooster hopped up in support
of the resolution as it, read.,. He, said, the
question of tariff was a veryimporfcont one,
and any delay on the part of tbe people of
BritiBh Columbia in holding on to the existing
order of things, even for one day after Confederation, would be a political weakness.
and. would also be the cause of a great deal
of political controversy.   He remarked that
on British Columbia joiningCanada'ahe would
go in on equality with other provinces in the
The amendment was put and lost, all the
Roosters constituting the Vancouver delegation voting in the affirmative.

After one hour's adjournment, committee

first resolution: .
Resolved.���That it is the 'opinion of this
Convention that the abolition of the existing
tariff of British Columbia and the adoption of
. the Dominion tariff ail over the colony on the
day of the consummation of union be estab-

British Columbia and the future progress-of

Cut; no wheats or very little���������  not enough for chicken-feed���������was grown, and  the spirited mill owners have be^ri ciamoriri"-  for. two years for a/reductionof the duty ou  wheat.   Now, if the disadvantageoris condition' o f tb e fanners, i u tb e I o wer co un try is  such that they cannot compete against foreign  p rod n cers, an d I hat was 'Aim main a rgn men t  for their protection, ifc would be absurd to  demand the present tariff to be con tinned under Confederation, when it has bren shown  that'll does not prodiicO^lltl^fesired effect.  A - u n i fo rm. ta riff is one of Tbie$M*&ij ia 1 f e a-  tures of a federal .iinioh;; arid must ;jjje made  general in its application,, or every part of  ���������the union might claim.the privilege'of exceptional tariffe, and  there would be no end of  legislative squabbling.   A tariff framed:especial !y for p rotec (ion never succeeds iu establishing a permanent homo; indnsfrv, because tbe Qpurse of legislation never* runs  smooth, and capital will not venture on iri-  ,?i vesiing in industry 'which cannot without le  gislaitvo  fnvour   be  made   Belf-iupporii/ig.  The Un Red States are a notable e.vamp Ie of the  impossibilUy of making protection tlie panacea lor a healthy h.omcindusiry.   Proteclion  to one is ruin to another branch of industry;  according lo the experience of the Unil*:d  Slates.   It is not proteclion which makes tlie  United States the granary of the world; but  the cneapnessaud extent of land.   In nevvly-  Betiled counlries, however, it is advisable to  jncourage  home   industry,  and   especiallv  farming, arid  Ihh can  be and generally is  done by raising (he bulk of the government revenues from duiies on imports,   if a homo  industry does nofgrow by means of ihe advantages which a revenue tariff and nearn������*s.s  lo market give then it is evident that ihe Ibne  has not arrived when that branch of.industry  which requires au extra degree of protection  can  be saMy conimericed.   But surely this  cannot be the case  with farming in British  Columbia, where  the. prices of all kinds of  farm produce are higher than in any other  country; and plenty of good land can be obtained for a dollar an acre.   Although it may  be advisable to continue protecting the farmers of tbe lower country, for indeed it was  forthem ihe liigli dutiesy were levied.

Lumber-Mill���������Messrs. "Meacham & Nason  are determined to be first in the field with a  lumber mill for Lightning creek, and have  selected a site on Ea^le creek, which is being  prepared for the reception of the machinery.  They have bought* the two engines and large  boiler formerly used in Mm steamer Seat.oU..  and an order to forward the machiuery, which  is at Clinton, has been sent down.  ���������Robiiert��������� Sluice-robbers have not been so  aclive this year as formerly, and there have  been very tew cases of sluice-robbing to report. Perhaps ihe temptation has not been  so great. Two of the Cornish co.'s boxes  were, cleaned up a few days ago without tbe  permission of the foreman, Capt. Robinson,  by which the thief or thieves would get a few  ounces of gold.  The Cariboo co. washed up il or on Wednesday and 82 oz. yesterday.

He is descended from an  ancient Irish Catholic family, who took refuge  in France with the Stuarts.   In 1855 his command assauUed and carried the Malakboff, in  which, notwithstanding the desperate assaults  and self-devotion of the" Russians, he maintained himself and virtually decided the fate  of Sevastopol.   He distingulslied; himself in  the Algerian iampaigia of 1857,', commanded  the- second Corps in - Ii^^md^on^e battle  of Magenfa, which" gave ;;hlm; his "flame, and  ijatpnas Marshal of. France., A.

In the French-Austrian war he was  at the .bead of thc Third Corps.   He was at  Magenta and Solferino.  The history of Marshal Changamier is well  ' known. Born in 1793, he graduated from St.  Cyr in 1815, and from 1823 until 1843 he was  constantly on active service, principally in  Algeria. ; He is a declared adversary of republican institutions.  Marshal Bazaine ia now 61 years of ag<\  He has the high reputation of being one of  . the bravest officers in tho French > army.   He  ,: rose from the ��������� ranks,-, and in five years from  his;enlistment gained his sub-lieutenancy and  bia cross on the field of, baltle.   He commanded the French contingent in Mexico,  after Gen. Forey, where his success was brilliant.   Bazaine, in council, advised Maximil-  "lian that empire in Mexico was impossible.  ��������� The Count de Falikao was born on the 24th  -of June, 1796. Ho wa9 employed at an early  age in Algiers, and distinguished himself there  as a cavalry officer, aud subsequently in  China.   In:18C(>, when he was given the grand  ���������/ ..cross, he could count 42 years of effective service, 28 campaigns and one wound. ���������  Y TUB PRUSSIAN GENERALS.  Amongst these may be included the King  of Prussia.. William Frederic.      .  His eldest soil, the Crown Prince, Frederic  . -William, commanded the Army of the Oder  at Sado wa.  Prince Frederic Charles is another of the  ." Prussian commanders.   He is 69 years of age  ;; and commanded the Army of the Elbe at Sa-  .   dowa.  Gen. Manteuffei entered the army when 17  years old.   He has accomplished many di-  ��������� plomatic missions, especially in Austria:.   In  .-.. 1866 he commanded the Army of the Main  ��������� against;Austria.-"-     xyuC;,, p-.'������������������Zyy  -   .Gen.yonMoltke, the Chief of Staff of the  Prussian forces, was born in 1800.   His high-  :. est  abilities  were  not exhibited until the  ��������� breaking out H of war between Prussia and  ���������. Austria's/;.His knowledge;of technical detail  and the science of war enabled him to take  part in drawing up with Bismarck the: plan of  tbat wonderfully successful campaign, and he  ; exp ressed himself as never for. am 6 m e n t lack -  log confidence in it. He took a personal part  in the battle of Sado wa, and arranged thesu1 -  , sequent hegdtiatioris which resulted in peace.  Gen. yon / Kdon. the,. Prussian General.  statesman and miiifcary writer and minister,  born in 1803, entered the army as an officer  In 1821. He has published a number of works,  Rome of which had a great circulation. To  him was confided the direction of the military  education of Prince Frederic Charles.. He  was called on the IGth of April, 1861, to the  Mm is* ry of the Marine. His name is prominent in the history of the extensive raodifica-  , turns of Germany, accomplished to, the profit  rof Prussia by the force of her arms or the  adroitness of her diplomacy.  ��������� Ifc will be seen from the foregoing that all  the Generals are aged men, some of them foe**  ing past seventy years of age, and all having  seen sixty. As a rule, it does not seem wise  to employ, in the rapid military operations of  the present day, men who have already exceeded the generally allotted span of human  yiife.
