THE CARIBOO: SENTINEL  Cards, Circulars, Posters and Programmes for  /Balls and Theatrical Entertainments  y  xecuted with neatness and dispatcb.^^'  yy   Terms moderate. ;���������'.. ;.,;  AVONDERFUL silver discoveries in  'y!���������!��������� LAKE- SUPERIOR.; y" x-   - ,y.  It will be within tbe knowledge of most of  our readers that an effort was made last year  to induce the island of Newfoundland to join  the Confederation, and the project, of ,union  had gone so far that, tbe terms of admission  were discussed jointly by a deputation from  the Island and by the Canadian  Executive*  It may hot be so generally known, however,  that a magnificent scheme of water communis  cation was one of the conditions proposed  arid accepted,: as between the eontraefciog par  ties, though the deadlock in. the NewfoundlandLegislature, and. the' short-sightedness of  her people delayed, but we trust did not defeat, the carrying out at an early day of the  proposed arrangement.  I    Briefly stated, th e sch erne! was this:   The  Montreal Ocean Steamship Company arranged  with tlie Dominion Government to provide  and equip a fleet of seven splendid ''steamers,  say 2000:tons each, which should run each  way, weekly, between St. Johns,; N.F., the  British West Indies and Liverpool, pursuing  some sucli route as the following : Leave Liy-  erp o ol for Ne wf oun dl an d, to once to Halifax^  found out this new property of coal 'oil was  simply this : He had a large boil oh the bald  place on his head, which gave him: much pain,  and, in the absence of anything else, he  rubbed coal oil on it. He says it relieved  the pain almost instantly, so he continued to  rub on the oil until the boil was entirely well,  when to his surprise he found a thin coating  of hair coming out over thetbald place. He  coritimied the use of the oil for a month or  two, and. now-has a:heavy coat'of hair, on his  head. Thisis! no humbug, but the simple  truth, and we advise our bald-headed friends  to try the expe^ment.,, ���������..",;_  MISCELLANEOUS.  where the sfceamei^:wonld coal; from there  : A letter from Saxil t Ste., Marie, Michigan, tp  the Pittsburg Commercial says : -  The precious, metals of Lake  Superior,  'which have remained untouched above and  beneath the surface where nature placed them,  and where they have been known to exist.for  ages, but remained undeveloped on account  of being in the soil of a slow and short-sighted,  government, are about to create one of the  greatest excitements this country has known  for years.   It has long since been known that  that portion of the north "shore of Lake Superior, about Thunder Bay, in Canada, was  immensely rich in .the precious metals, but  the selfish and short-sighted policy of the government and the monopolising tendency of  the Hudson Bay Company, have thrown every  obstacle in the way of its development.  Recently two American Companies have  been formed and have succeeded in securing  titles to an immense amount of mmiiig- territory, and commencing operations. One .company has already reported at tbe Customhouse 3600 lbs. of silver lead ore, which will \  yield one hundred and sixty-nine ounces of  silver to the ton, and which has been sent to  New York to be assayed.  The other company is constructing a huge  coffer-dam around a small island in Thunder  Bay, called Silver Island. From this island  ���������to Thunder Cape, a distance of one and a  ���������qnarter miles, and ten feet under water, can  be traced a vein of silver ore running entirely  across. It is the intention to sink a shaft 60  feet deep, and then drive galleries in all direc*  tions. This lode of silver ore is said to be  exceedingly rich, far exceeding the celebrated  Comstock lode in fevada, which yields $139  to the ton, while that of silver island yields  $1G9, besides the lead .and copper. .The  working: of this mine will be attended with a  great dealof expense and risk, as the island  is so situated as to be exposed to the storms  which are so destructive on Lake Superior.  Of this mining district Fort William, British  America, will bo the centre, and it will be  but a short time until that isolated trading  post of the Hudson Bay Company will be the  ���������seat of a great business, and a city of active,  thriving Yankees will take the place of the1  worthless Indians and stespy Canadians.  to * a- United States port to re!sceive;..Canada  mails for the West Indie3; then to Bermuda,  St. Thomas andDemerara; from pemerara;  the return voyage would.begin, calling a;s before at St. Thomas, Bermudai and at. the TJ.  States port to land.mails and passengers; at  Halifax to coal, and thence via' Newfoundland  tp Liverpool. ���������: ��������� '<y'}yyyyy-  The value of such a service to the commerce of the .West Indies with.Canada aud  Great Britain it is difficult to overestimate.  It would foster immensely the, as.yet, limited.  trade done.by the Dominion'with the Antillss  both in exports and imports.   We imported  in 1869, at Montreal, goods to the, value of  $961,970, from Cardenas, Cuba, Barb ado es  and Trinidad ; and all the lumber we sent to  them in that.:time amounted to but $5,955.  There is no reason, either, why our exports  of lumber, woodenware, &c, to theseaslauds  should not be largely increased, or why we  should not add such of their products as cocoa.  coffee;, arrowroot, hides, &c, to the sugar and  molasses, which appear to be the only articles  we as yet import from them direct..  But to return to the steamers. A line of  small propellers would be put on from Montreal via Quebec to Pictou and intermediate  ports, connecting by rail from Pictou with  Halifax, and another line from Shediac to  Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton and Halifax, to act as feeders to the large line.  A large coal depot was proposed to be  built at Halifax, and it is estimated that over  90,000 tons of coal would be required by the  line in the course of the^ear.  The moving spirit- in this really national  scheme was Hugh Allan, already the originator of Canadian commercial and monetary  institutions enough to have made the reputation of a dozen ordinary mortals; and with  his energetic grasp upon it we leok forward  to seeing a second Canadian Ocean Steamship  Line traversing1., the Atlantic at no distant  day.���������[Monetary Times.  : 1 Ludicrous Attempt. : at . Suicide.���������rThe :St  Joseph\Mo.) Gazette of the 19thult. says:---;  Last Thursday evening, an old colored woman,  who had become; disgusted with this,wicke&  world, determined to seek a better one.   She  resolved to leave by ascent, and to effect her  purpose, she brought into requisition an old  relic of ,the. war, in the shape of a six-pound  cannon ball,, which was ta^en  home by her  husband as a treasure from the battle Held of  Fort Donelson> $>nd some powder.. Having  all the. necessary elements for hoisting herself  into the better world, she very coolly placed  vtheypowder on the floor, of her cabin; with 'the  li all- on to p. ., Every thing b eing in pro p e/ order for her ascent, she: placed herself in,; a  sitting posture over them, and then arid there  fired the powder./ But instead of be.lngshot  thro ii g h \ th e ro of, as she expected, she .was  compeiied to burst out of doors, screaming  like a screech-o wl, an d Tsat hurriedly; do wn  into the first tub of water she could find.  She  is determined, she says, to find some other  means of quitting this world than by the ex-,  plosion of gunpowder. ���������'���������*���������-'���������  Miners' Provision  Store  barkerville;   j  <������������������'���������  ;���������; ���������������������������' ���������   -0--".

TER^  We took occasion recently to, draw attention to the ridiculous absurdity of a party of  demagogues in Victoria trying to create an  issue in the terms of Confederation as to the  terminus of the trans-continental railway, at  the same time publishing the text of a resolution adopted at a public meeting in New  Westminster^ in which, we thoroughly concurred, deprecating any such dangerous and  absurd agitation at present. Onr New Westminster friends, however, seem not to be con-  ten t wi th the ac tion al ready take n an d 1 elfin g  the matter d rop; biit they have got up a  counter petition praying: that the Governor  will not accede to the Victoria petition or  make any communication to the Canadian  Government in regard to altering or interfering with the terms of Confederation. A  copy of. the petition has been forwarded, to  Cariboo for signature but so far has received  tto signatures, nor do we think it will. The  people^of Cariboo, we believe, consider that  the.course adopted ia New Westminster is  only.calculated to flatter the Miotic vanity of  the originators of an insane movement, to  whom silent contempt would be.more galling  than a thousand petitions, and-^hose insatiable appetite fore self-aggrandizement and  notoriety would only be stimulated by argument or remonstrance.  Accidents���������A miner named John Evans  was seriously injured last week while sinking  a shaft on Antler creek by a bucket falling  on him. striking his shoulder and causing extravasation of blood on tho lungs. Ames-  sage was sent to Barkerville for Dr. Chipp,.  who went over and rendered the necessary  attention. A man named John Wadleigh,  while chopping timber for Messrs. Meachara  & Nason's sawmill at Eaarle creek, cut his  foot very severely on Thursday. He was  brought to Williams creek and taken to the  hospital.  New Literatuke Reckivei).���������We have re  celved from Messrs. T. N. Hibben & Co., Victoria, a copy of a new and copious Chinook  Dictionary, with exemplifications, which we  recommend to the notice of such of our  readers as have the misfortune ������nofc to be  already proScient in that useful and euphonious language. The cover stated that the  work was for sale by Mr W. Davison, of Barj  kerville, but that gentleman has. not yet received my copies. We presume that the  present work has been Specially issued in an-*  <Sn!nfi(!rin   f\i'     trtn  fart r% l ������������flm^irifet   f\V    frirt    fr������rtn/-i*.  ;;;CHu1tbBt;i^TiTUTB CosoBBt���������LThe. first concert of the Canobb Church Institute for the  winter season was given at, the Theatre Royal  ontSaturday last^ Owin^ to the short notice  given, the audience was rather limited. The  concert was commenced by the performance  at-tbe open windows of" Home, sweet home,"  by the band, who during the evening pto?^  a number of choice selections, including tixe  march " What will they say in England," and  the German National air" The Watch pu tbe  Rbine^.;in very excellent style. The banfl  now comprises nine niusiciana, and:thepro-;  gress made' sinca its formation reilecta much  credit both on its talented organizer, Mr Hey-  nard, and on the members, who have evidently applied vhemHelve*; dilice'htly and profited by his instructions. Tbe flinging class  sang a number of glees, &c;, very successfully.  The class contains a number of very superior  vocalists, who are always welcome to an ap-  prec i a ti v 0. a u C ien ce. ��������� Mr fieyn ar d sari g the  "'Sailor's Grave" very Sweetly, accompanying himself on the piano. The rev. gentleman then read the " Christmas Carol," which  was rather tedious and monotonous, the audience evincing unmistakable sighs of weariness before its completion. It is always very  difficult to keep the interest in any protracted  reading from flagging, and especially with a  slim 'house on a cold night. Liveliness aud  variety in an entertainment always afford the  greatest satisfaction���������at least in Cariboo.  We would suggest the propriety in any future  concert of the Institute of having programmes  issued, as parties who are musical experts  like to know what they are listening to.  The Weatoer in the early part of this week  was very cold for a night or two, and it appeared as if a regular cold snap was setting  in, but a change took place quickly, and the  last two days have been mild with light snow.  The quantity ot snow which has fallen this  winter has been just enough to make ihe road  between William creek aud Quesneimouth in  capital condition for sleighing, and a jrreat  deal of freight and farm produce is being  ^brought in. ���������'������������������_'*  More Beef Cattle���������The beef market on  William and *L1 gh tilt ng "creeks is being kept  well supplied7this winter with prime beef,  Messrs. Van Volkenburg & Co.- received this  week 56 head fine cattle from Mr Ritchie's  ranch at Canoe creek,' and Mr T. Harper  brought in another lot of 50 head on Thursday, all in first-rate condition.      .  Special Services will be held at. St. Saviour's Church on Christmas day, when the  choir will sing several anthems. The Church  Committee intend that the collections taken  at evening and morning services shall ,be donated to the incumbent, Mr Reynardj whose  Income is by no means adequate.      -     - ���������-,   Ball Postponed���������At a meeting of the William Creek Fire Brigade, held on Tuesday  evening, it was resolved to postpone the annual ball, which had, been announced for 28ih  December, until further notice.l '  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.  fTTSS A.

London, Dec. 16~Tbe Prussians delay the  bombardment of Paris owing to the lack of  ammunition, coupled with the fact that the  Toads are beavy, aud the opening of the fire  may be deferred a fortnight. ..  The Pall Mall Gazette says it is England's  duty to impress Prussia that the violation of  the neutrality of Luxembourg will not. be  viewed with indifference or passed over with  impunity. The departure from neutrality by  Luxembourg is no excuse lor Prussian aggression. : --V  It is said the French delay in acceding to  the Conference is due solely to the difficulty  of commani-caoioa.  The Prussians charge that the French Consul at Luxembourg keeps, an open office for  enlistment.

'; "But, Coknt," said the unsuspecting girl,  do you forget to return the diamond ring I  handed to you,a few minutes ago ?" .  "The diamond ring!" exclaimed the Russian noble, with an air of virtuous surprise.  ** I returned it to'you immediately after you  handed it to me for inspection."  The young lady quietly protested that she  had not received it, and the count, in turn,  solemnly averred .that she had.

Shortly after he had gone, however, she resolved to look for her ring, which had been  sold by the count for $600.

After the coronation the carpet was given to the people, and  everybody tried to cut off a piece, which was  earried about the city as a Sag.   Ia the year  1184,,.at the Reichstag, at Mayence,  these  colors were recognised as the true German  ones, and they were retained until Napoleon  put an end to the Empire, in 1806.  Since that time -the Burschenschaften have  kept the old colors in memory.   Jn the revolutionary year 1848, ihe German colors were  again brought to light by the members of the  National Assembly at Frankfort*   Thejre was  considerable  discussion at tne time as to  which color had tho precedence.

He was sentenced to five years' imprisonment;  A few. months ago, this same Russian count  appeared in Paris, and got into fashionable  society. <Two months ago he managed to  gain admittance into the American club in  that city, but hie former villainous record becoming known, he was ignominiously kicked  out.
