A correspondent of tie Cincinnati, 'Commercial'has had an interview with Kit Car-  8on, who communicated to him the following  interesting reminiscences: '-  All the Indians, hunters anil trappers ride  with short stirrups.   I am almost bow legged  from it. -It is more important to the Indian  * than the white man, as it is only bjfeaid of the  Btirrup that he oa^^^>te:>^(nii^^JiW^Qg  '"..:. dbwi on One side, so as. to^coB^feaiall his  'body but his leg.

".''AA ..  ** I had just a little suspicion that the wolves  might tie Indians, but when I saw them turn,  short round, and heard the snap of their teeth  'when the dogs'came too close to ohe.of 'em, 1  ; felt,easy then, and made sure it waff'a wolf.  The Indians fooled me that time. ���������  jSonfound  ���������the rascals"���������becoming animated���������'^confound  the rascal, do you think he did not&ave two  -old buffalo bones in his hand tbat he cracked  together every time he turned to snap at the  dogs?   Well, by and  by, we dozed off to  sleep, and it wasn't long before I tvas awoke  by a "crash and a blaze, I jumped straight for  .the mules and held'em.

When I was there again in 1859, they had all  ' disappeared, and When I inquired about cer-  "foia^trjbes I had seen on the spot, was told  by the people Hying there that they bad never  beard of them.'* .-.'    ��������� 1 yxr!-:  WHAT WE LIVE FOR.  Our readers have heard a thousand times,  doubtless, homilies from those who were called philosophers and deyines which were intended t,o teach the great end and aim of  human life    These plans have been wrought  out With all the ingenuity, and often with all  snbtility, that man's intellect and ingenuity  can devise.   They all promise happiness to  thosej.,whotwUifollow the precepts which they  inculcated  But do you know of any single instance where the. expectations which these  systems have  created have been realized?  Kave'tbey^nbt, in the language of the preacher, ^been worse than nothing, and altogether  vanity?'f: Alas! many a weary and  care-  Worn, hearthas.borneVteslimony to the fact,  .thattiboae.WKo-have'listened to the words of  thesage have -been "hewing ont for themselves broken  cisterns which can hold no  vmftir.^yy';f' ''ylyyliy'ly!  yThelirunkard still Quaffs his bowl in raan-  ruin/ tlie nhsusp^ctin'g-youth; the seducer continues his: hearttessAWork and the miser is  still sucking the life blood from the unfbrtu-  uote victim who has been placed in his  power. And yet all these think tbey are pursuing the course that leads to happiness. Let  us eat and drink and be merry, ;say tbey, for  to-morrow we die. And crime holds high  revelry, and its devotees say^-" We are but  sceking:our .own happiness arid in our ,own  way:  j)  A PERFECT ANTIpOTB^ FOR ALL PoiSONS,~A  * plain 'farm er says :^It is n ow o ver 20 years  since j learned that sWeet oil "would "cure the  bite of a 'rattlesnake, not knowing it would  cure other kinds of poison:7 Practice* obser-  yationsi and experience have taught me that  it will^cure all kinds of poison, both on man  and bfeast. I th ink np farther shfluid" be without a bottle of it iii his house. The patient  must take a spoo n ful of it i n ternally, and b atb e  the Wound for a cure. To cure a horse it requires eight times as m uch as it does for a  man. Here let me state one Of the most ex  Hreme/cases of snake bites in this neighbor-  bood::' Elevefi years ago last summer, where  the'-case had been 30 days standing, and the  patient had been given up.by bis physicians,  I heard of it, and carried the oil arid gave hi ra  one spoonful which effected a cure. It is an  antidote for arsenic and strychnine. It will  cure bloat in cattle hy eating too freely of  clover. It will cure the sting of bees, spiders, and other insects, and will cure persons  who have been poisoned by a low running  vine, growing in the meadows, called ivy.  J������** A Scotch blacksmith being asked the  meaning of metaphysics, explained as'follows:  "When the party who listens disna ken  what the party who speaks disna ken what he  means himself���������that is metaphysics.',  ^������^ A man who was boasting that there  was never any rope or cord, whether made of  hemp, wire, or anything else, in which he  could not tie a double bow knot, was summarily put down by being requested to tie ������  knot in a cord of wood.  m A Goon Pun,���������That, was a good pun bjr a  literary man who on retiring to private life  said that his, connection with, the press had  thawed and resolved itself into ' adieu!'  J^* The age of a young lady is now ex  pressed according to the present style of hoop  skirts, by saying that" eighteen springs have  passed over Jier head,"  Leaving the world of crime, -let'us look at  those who are ho nest at'heart, and whorecog-  nize all the external forms of morality. These  men are. strict in tbe discharge of all their  duties; in fact thuy seem to live.in a perfect  round of duties, with* little other'care than performing that faithfully which is. committed to  their charge. And have these found happir  ness ? If .you look at their cold eyes,:Which  have long since lost the fire of youth, yon will  see tbe contentment of despair. "; ���������;���������;���������������������������/  :. But there are those whose voices have the  clear ring of happiness and" hope,' and whose  elastiostep ;betokeris7Jbyous peace within,  alike removed from the wild glee of tbe debauchee or /he settled melancholy of the man  ofvduty; VWhat makes7 them so^ Why are  their heartsi joyous and glad? It is the thought  that some one is watching at home that quickens their footsteps; it is the conciousness tbat  there is some one whose pure and tender  love will do more than recompense for all the  disappointments and vexations of life. It is  the thought of these tWngs that drives care  from his brow: It is love alone that makes  life beautiful: . yy..! y  , Reader, live for something. Do good, and  leave behind you a monument of virtue, that  thb storms of time can never destroy. Write  your name with acts of kindness, love and  mercy on the hearts of thousands with whom  you come in contract, irom year to year, and  you will never be forgotten. Remember,  good deeds will shine as bright oh the ear tb as  the staw in heaven.   ;  :;  Count Laquange's Arauian Ponies.���������Two  beautiful animals have been sent, to Ireland,  within the last few days, by the Count F. de  Lagrange. Tho Count,' on being applied to  for a prize for a great charitable institution in  Ireland, generously responded, and remarked:  *^To Irish horses I owe the winning of the  blue ribbons of tbe English turf. As the progenitors of 'FilJe de l'Air' and 'Gladtateur'  were genuine Hibernians, tbe least I can do  is to" try and give something in the way of  horseflesh to a country whose horses did so  much honor to France in Winning for her (he  greatest prizes which England throws open  to competition on the turf." True fo his  promise, the owner of tbe winner of the Oaks  and of the Derby of 1865, selected two Arabian ponies to bo given as a prize for the  forthcoming, bazaar and drawing of prizes,  held under the auspices of the commercial  young men of Dublin, for the purpose of realizing funds for tho support of female orphans.  ���������~-A*rE������^!i!2a T$oBmmttfs-'SEXT.~Sirrm-ridea  ofan English duke's estate may be had when  we state that the establishment of tho Duke of  Devonshire would occupy one of our large  counties.

The OriginalOfLManofGXnada;���������About  ten'years ago a man named j Pratt, who pes  sessed in a remarkable degree the roving disposition," happened to pass through the township of Ennisliilien, and seeing the *gitm beds/  as they ivere termed, shrewdly guessed that  there was something to be found there:   He  accordingly bought, seventy acres of the land  in wljioh is how the centre of the Oil districts,  and,after having the gum.analyzed at Hamilton, left the country..  He went to the silver  mines of Mexico and amassed ii considerable  fortune-;  from thence ho struck over into  Mexico, where, no doubt, he found adventure  to satisiv even his spirits, and on the breaking out of the lite war he took up at-ms en the  side of the south, and fought the Yankees tor  four years.   In the meantime nothing was  heard of him, and on the discovery of oil at  Enniskillen, bis estate was administered and  reverted back to the crown.    About three  weeks ago, however, the rover stepped into  a large oil establishment, announced himself  as the original old Pratt, and politely requested the 4soi disaht' proprietors to "clear out.-  Utterly, confounded, these gentlemen handed  over $10,000 to quiet the title, and Mr. Pratt  set off for Ottawa, where he asked the Commissioner of crown lands by what authority  his lands were taken from him and gtveu to  others    The answer was so far satisfactory  that he set off in high gleo} and when the  writer met him on the cars, was on his way to  Oil Springs to give a number of wealthy trespassers, as he  considers th^rn, "particular  scissors."   He expects to realise Some &200,  000 in gold from the transaction;  f&* If you want gddd Ootfe������ ii.se" FelPs;  Gold Dust Melted and Assayed,Vand returns, made  -within 54.hours in Coin orBirs. ,7;.  ���������  Ores of every uescriplion c.tr.{fully Assayed.   yy-.;  N.

They are sometimes looked upon as superfluities, but by their means  the motion.is equalized, aud a great force is  applied with little danger.

The  <ifort of the Goverhment to foist the Hospital  ���������on the public for slip port was successfully re-  ��������� iris'fed by the Board, and the matter was compromised by the Board agreeing to keep the  -���������building in repairs;.the Board has kept its  word by expending about $800 of public contribution on it up to this time:   The demands.  of the Board Ibr an increase of power and for  constitutional changes, in the Miners' Court  were both   refused   by   the   Administrator;  limits/wereby; this interview- at once set to  the province of the Board. It has no absolute  power, but may pass by-laws, which, if ap-  -proved of by the Gold Commissioner, become  law. aud remain so until disapproved by the  -Governor. ' The power granted to the Gold  Commissioner is so great that the Board, instead of passing by-laws, preferred in every  ���������ctse to request, ibe Gold Commissioner to ex-  . -e cise his power in the matter, thus giving to  tje Commissioner all tin* sanction it had wither causing unnecessary delay or provoking  .  criticism by passing cumbersome by-laws.  On the promise of the Administrator that  ���������any recommendations of the Board as to ne-  xess'ary   alterations in existing  laws would  first Express to the Governor. The Board has  also endorsed the petition of Allen against the  Williams Creek ^ed Rock=Flume Company's  Ordinance, and the petition of nankin  against the further indulgence of the Grouse  Creek Flume Company.  These are the principal subjects that have  engaged tbe attention of tbe Board since its  election, and of tbe manner in which they  have been discussed and decided let the public judge.

The Board also fro-  poses some -alterations and reductions in the  fees now charged and some slight changes in  ,: tbe size and shape of. creek claims.    Resolutions were passed proposing to have certain  claims worked during the winter���������to have no  claims laid over without a cer lain amount oi  work being done-���������to have greater protection  given to the minority against the rule of the  i'ureman and majority���������to have the indefinite  aud redundant section struck out and to have  other and different ones substituted..

Henry Allen produced his records  which the Board -considered /established his  right to 100ft, of ground. ��������� The Fliime Co, ad-  mi tted the correctness of this opinion and he  has never been disturbed in the possession, of,  bis claim; it was also explained to the Mining  > Boartl>vby the ground in question came to be  % omitted from the exemption contained in the  ordinance.; *���������������������������A&f. Sims, the promo ter oithe  petition above mentioned, produced a bill of  sale of 400ft. of .ground which from >* Know  all men" down to the,last signature, was, by  his own admission, execiited by himself | the  instrument was dated May 1st, 1865,.and although sixteen months had elapsed was never  recorded.   What weight a Court of Conscience  would attach to an unrecorded bill of sale inl  Vhich the transferree had-signed the names of  all the transferors without a witness I have  not the means of knowing; but the Mining  Board declared ifc "faulty/f and added that he,  Sims, had failed to establish his title.    .  Interested parties have without reason, very  freely denounced the ordinance, and' others  ignoaant of the facts have -joined in the cry.  If any person to whom complaint is made  that the ordinance operates unjustly will take  the example of tho Mining Board and request  the fault-finder to bring his papers, i. e. records,; to establish his claim, he will avoid the  tediousness of hearing a twice told tale. ,  I make no apology for intruding on your  columns believing it is your first desire to  makejyour pajper reliable in everything pertaining to the mining interests of Cariboo..

The circumstances in which a  person chances to be placed possess a moving  influence, favorable or inimical to. the subject.  .It is strange, but it is true, that anybody may  be subject to excess in motion. In exigencies  requiring presence of mind, bodily activity,  and promptitude, every muscle and bone and  nerve seems to be painfully alive to the necessity of sympathetic and harmonious action;  ���������and" eachparticular endowment .interferes  with the free, and proper exercise of each  other one,  ; When Mr. Erskine first rose before a court  to argue his maiden case, his trepidation was  excessive, and he was about to resume his  seat, when the vision of his needy wife and  children came thronging upon him, and he  proceeded with vigor until success crowned  the first cause which had been placed in his  bands. With men of different organizations  the very cause of activity vin Erskine would  have impeded their exertion, and they would  have sunk into their seats overwhelmed with  mortification and confusion.  A similar occurrence distinguished the professional debut of David Paul Brown, one of  Philadelphia's ablest- and most favored law-  AT'tEe  <������������������"��������������� ��������� u^-���������������������������������-h*"*'^^"!*'-'/j  yers.

This" was excess of.motion...  it is not, however, of this peculiar incentive  to exertion that this - paper is designed especially to treat. That honest and continued labor which conies from deep conviction is to  be more particularly touched upon. The results of meditations which have been grounded in right; which have been adopted by the  soul as well as the heart; which have been  carried out through evil report and through  good report, and .nursed in every variety of  adverse circumstances, are to be; considered  ���������as carefully as maybe.  Illustrations of this principle would be su-  perogatory and useless, for it is exemplified    " I tell you its- a fact, and with  . in every phrase of life around and about us  in the pulpitythe i'orum, and the counting-  house. The coal which is placed upon the  back of a negligent youth is sometimes of one  species and sometimes of another.' The old  Baying declares that if you "Put a coal on the  back of a turtle, it will travel." The old saying does not specify the kind of coal, whether  it be white-ash, or red-ash, or rich mountain,  or anthracite. The coal which is used to  move humanity, may be tenderness, or benevolence, or purity, or justice, but it must be,  of living, burning, -resistless power, full of  heart and ot* durability.  A noble resolve nobly carried out, is worthy  of all admiration. A young man who begins  the course of life with elevated sentiments, unbending integrity, and unsleeping vigor, will  sooner or later, become eminent in some walk  of life. Notwithstanding the cart loads of  cant which are sent from place to place in  antagonism to this great principle, no man ol  ability in any pursuit can be pointed out who  has not attained to bis position by diligence  in business, united with fervor, perseverance  and justness.  To be sure there are some standing on high  places in public and private life, but they ar>������  but pigmies placed on Alps. Those who are  trujygceat will be so, no matter in whatsitua-j  ' tion they may be, as pyramids are pyramids  whether located on tbo mountains or in the  Val '5.  In the life of everyone there comes a time  when the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but when judgment, tenacity  iind hopefulness stand Mm in good stead, who  ha3 cultivated them, and kept them, and honored tbem.  In different phrases and different times; different influences predominate. But if the  young man would wish to "travel," let hira  keep braced up to an impelling motive, to  tbat coal upon his back, whether it burns with  the glowing light of professional eminence, or  the more sombre glow of private pursuits, or  the red glare of military renown.  The world will not stop to enquire whether  you were one hour or ten in-mastering, the rudiments of your profession, or one year or ten  in qualifying yourself for its practice; but  wh*m you commence to practice and challenge criticism, then it will scrutinize your  work, and pronounce its dread sentence re^  gardless of the time taken to complete ifc.  Therefore you who have souls to save or destroy, remember the old saying of the coal  upon the back of a turtle. If your child does  not learn, burn him���������burn bim with kindness  or sternness, or both, using discretion according to the organization, capacity, and inclination of the child. In due time education will  come, and wealth, and eminence, and much  Mti&tactiop.  PATHER.-IN-LAW IN SPITE OF HIMSELF  Tbe London correspondent of the New Orleans 'Delta' writes the following:���������  A good sell is related of a wealthy banker  here, who is very good-natured, but inclined  to be a trifle fast in his views of life. He had  a favorite clerk, a young mah of about twenty  remarkably handsome, modest and highly in*  tellectual. For these qualities he was liked  by everyone, and the banker did not escape  the general feeling of good will. He was as  poor as his salary, and had no connections to  push him after fortune, and so, like most English clerks, he would rise to one hundred and  twenty pounds a year, go on for eight years  at ten .pounds a year rise, and marry when he  gets, two hundred pounds a year, henceforth  to vegetate and find that the additional ten  pounds a year rise only keep pace with the  additional babes in the household.  The banker, on Sunday afternoon, when no  one was;: expected; would occasioLilly ask the  young man to visit his young family at his  suburban villa j as the conversation of the  young mani wasso correct and clever/it could  not bat be of advantage to liis children. This  was a'mistake, evidently, but it "was a good-  natured error, but we oari only wish all of us,  tlmt tliereiwerenipreoqmmUted.,T have not  mentioned that there was a beautiful daughter of nineteen, but that may always be understood in any English family that has known  wedded life long enough. But there were of  co w^ej-rto-atienii&m-o n-������he������p*&'t offcb*>~you ng-  man other than extremely delicate, reserved  and proper; This will most always be the  case with" English youth, as Americans well  know. Don't "hem" after this. The youth  iii spite of two or three day*s invitation at the  banker's country seat, to breathe fresh air and  clear his lungs of London smoke, was evidently very ill, and though he,declared himself  well and robust, the banker shook his head.  " I cannot make-out what is the matter with  ray young clerk," said the banker to a confrere who was in the back office with him  after the youth bad just brought in "florae  papers.      .  u Well, you are green I should say for a  man. of life and experience," said banker  number two, "Don't you see what's the matter?   He's iu love."  .  " In love! bah I He is modesty and propriety itself."  -     "   *    -" -!il" a rich old  QUE35fELMbtJTH ADVERTISEMENTS.  TICE.

The house was in consternation, and a search made for her in all, directions.   A note, however, was found on her  dressing  table,  conveying  the    customary  prayer of forgiveness, and one enclosed from  the young man  stating -that believing the  banker had ment to give him a hint in regard  to his daughter, and was not able to give his  public consent owing to.appearances, he had.  acted  on the suggestion, and  that ere his  P father-in-law" had received the letter he  would be his son-in-law.
