Tbis,ha������ provoked  a good deal of discussion, and we understand  that several of our merchants and others in  barkervilie hare addressed a communication  to out representative in opposition to the  tfcherae.   The chief objection made ib that it  Is dangerous to grant any parties a monopoly  ������qv so long a period.   We'feave  already expressed our sentiments as to the necessity of  OfmlioQ In granting any charter of the sort,  aud we are confident that the Governor and  <Jou.nett will thoroughly investigate the mat-  tar, aodN before granting any exclnsive right  take every precaution to guard against giving  ������mch undue privileges to any party as might  -"he calculated to jeopardise the general internals^ the community.  :    LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.  The  Legislative   Council   was   formally  opened on the 3d ulk, the members present  Jiaving'been sworn in by the Chief Justice.  His 'Excellency the Governor delivered the  -opening speech and the Rouse adjourned to  ^January 9th.   On the Dtb, the Estimates were  laid before tbe Council.   Dr. Carrall pre-  nented tbe mainland petition for opening the  Omineca route via Giscorae Portage, and several notices of motion were given.   On the  10th, Mr Nathan moved that the Governor be  requested to send down a bill guarantee!ng  Interest, at five per cent., for twenty years  yafier tbe expiration of guarantee given by  ibe Dominion Government to the Company  xbTtilding the  graving  dock  at  Esquimalt;  -rj\f4������������."^l^Bg discuuMoa -the motion was nega-  tired.   The consideration of the Estimates  ���������was postponed till Jan. 13th, owing to the  absence of Messrs. Cornwall and Humphrey*.  progress of the arrarigemerits likely to be  beneficial to the colony in general.  The agreement proposed contains tbe condition; that the existing Tariff and Excise  Duties Bhall be cohtifiiied in force in-British  Columbia'mntil the intended Railway from  the ParafiC'Coaet and the systems of railways  in Canada are connected, unlps the Legisla-  -ture of tbisv colony -shall sooner decide to ac^  cept the Tariff and Excise Laws of Canada.  This alternative will therefore form a separate question tor your consideration, but it  need not in any lnauaer affect the ^adoption  of the tertris of agreement as they stand/  It is also provided that the Constitution of  the Bxecutive autborlfcy, and of the Legislature of British Co]<uuabia, shall,-suhiject to the  provisions of the *:���������** British' North America  Act, 1867," continue as existing at the time  ������f^Union, until altered under the authority of  the said Act; but it is also eoepressiy stated,  osamderstood, that the Government of Canada  will readily consent to tbe introduction of  Responsible Government w"hen desired by the  inhabitants of British Columbia. 1 am aware  that a very general opinioa prevails in favor  of the adoption of this form of ad mini strati 6a  for the Local Government on Confederation.

The following fire the principal topics re-  /forred to by his Excellency:  ' ���������' At the close of the last session. 1 ac-  gnainted the Council that I should send a  Delegation to Ottawa* to lay before the Gov-  -ernment of-Canada the Resolutions which  have been adopted by that Council on the  <mbject'of Confederalion, to explain our views  and wants, and to learn jpw far tbe'wants  and expectations of the people of this colony  * could be fulfilled in any arrangement for  Union. The result of that mission has already  been cpmmtinicated to the public ; but I shall  mow lay befere you formally the Report of  the Pxivy Council of Canada on the subject,  ���������which has been transmitted to me by Lord  7'iflffar.   The terms of Union embodied in  that Minute, which the Government of Canada  in prepared to support in the Parliament of  tbe Dominion, are, I believe* as liberal as this  colony  can equitably expect.    Indeed, in  *ome respects, the arrangements agreed upon  are more advantageous to us than the scheme  originally proposed. . I submit them to you  in full confidence that you wili join with me  5n this conclusion ; and I recommend to you  at once to pass an address to her Majesty, in  accordance with tho provisions of the " Brit-  nil North Ameriea Act, 1867." prayimj for  r<1 mission into the Union, on those terms ahd  renditions.

Subsequently, plaintiff sent a written order for  the harness by Mr Felker, who was told that  Reilly had got it.

The harness was valued by plaintiff at $100,  and by defendant at $30. The sleigh bells  and sacks were produced in court, haying  been retained subject to plaintiff's or4er.  The Court decided in favor of defendant on  the ground that the harness having been left  in the stable contrary to the hostler's advice  be could pot be considered-responsible for its  safekeeping.

This is asserted  by several individuals, but we cannot believe  it* and wish to be rightly informed, for when  a Magistrate sets that law at nought which it  is his duty to guard and carry out, and the  Supreme Court Judge shields him, then it is  time to appeal to such authority as will see  justice carried out.

Mr R.Sylvester, with tbe Omineca express,  arrived here on Monday and started en his  return trip on Thursday.   He reports the  total number of men wintering above Fort  Si James to be 40.  No new discoveries have  been made, it. being impossible to do much  prospecting 'during the winter, but several  parties have located claims on Curry creek",  which was partially prospected last fall, and,  which it is believed, so far as known, will  pay about an ounce per day to the hand.      .  Mr Sylvester considers that it would be  very imprudent for any considerable number  of men to Atari for Omineca until there is an  opportunity of  getting in provisions,   He  states t&at yuan he left Mr Elmore had about  8000 lba. of 0aurr with beans, bacon, and  sugar to correspond^   On Germanaen creek  there wai an abundant supply of beef, And at  Fort St.James -about 2000 lbs. of floor, plenty  of .sugar aad dried.salmon, but no bacon.  /'Am there is -little chance of fresh supplies  being got in before 1st-9una, it will easily b#  perceived from the above that even tf all the  patties now wintering in-the. mines have suffl-  cieat provisions to last tbem till that time;  which is very doubtful, U would be worse  than folly for any large nun^er to rash fn  prematurely and risk starvation.

Tb^,.description, of the  Thompson  road  steamer i w.bich recently appeared   In  our  columns has attracted the attention of our  ���������:;readero*to ths subject of traction engines, and  :U aoay.no'i be amies te aupplemeat that article  by some further general remarks upon trac-  <tfon engines for common roads, *' subject of  considerable importance, since tbe success  ���������wbicb has-attended'the road steamer referred  ri������, and the Afeling and Porter traction engine,' has demonstrated the usefulness as well  ^ tha practicability, of such machines.  . Uany of our readers are perhaps ignorant  ef> tbe chief requirement of traction engines  -for comBOfc roads, or at least have not had  ^hen-concisely aad comprehensively Stated.  These requirements are quite numerous.  To secure tbeiii has keiit a work* of. many  difficulties, oaly accomplished as yet in ex.  apeEiive ma&iines, like those above alluded  to.   Tbeae difficulties all arise.from the various . characters of roadways, on .which'such  .^Dgines are worked.   Stones which render  xoatis uneven and rough, sand or mud which  reader them heavy, all must be inet as they  ������������ccur,.aed the traction engine, which fully  >coined-up to th������ reqni rotten to of 1he   case*  f^83ust bt able to fliirmount���������eachJn. turn without ! hesitation  or  material  abatement * -of-j  oower. -��������� ���������    .'���������-���������������������������-    -"-: -'-     "���������."���������   ���������  Sucfe engines are ".alflo required to ascend  keavy grades with their loads, to turn; around  Is a iimited space, to run backwards and forwards, arid, to endure without breakage the  jgliockfl incident. to travel on rough roads.���������*  And not only the observance of these con  dittoes is essential to success,: but a fair  measure of economy ia their working is also  an essential which caanot be overlooked.  ���������  As the driving wheels must be maintained  in,at;least, an approximately fixed, position  islat^vajy to the cylinders, it is obvious, the.  introduction of spriDga of sufficient flexibility  to t*k*.off the shock* between the axles and  the superimposed structure would become a  disturbing element, unless some method of  compensation for the motion which they allow  weie devised. For every vertical motion of  tho body of the machine from the axles  lengthens th* distance between the axles and  the cylinders, and if not, as w������ have said,  eompensated for, this lengthening and shortening will interfere with that nice adjustment  of parks so necessary to the successful use of  etf am as a motor.  The employment of the soft rubber tire as  *ised in tlie Thomson road steamer, and also  jn the Aveling & Porter traction engine, ob-  viatee alt necessity for the use of springs between the axles and the parts which they support j but such tires add greatly to the eosc4 of  <the machine, g������ve-the wheels aelumsy appearance, and certainly forbid the attainment of  -.a speedsuitable te passenger traffic.  '���������' Rubber tires give great tractile power, but  ;Whas "been shown that on roads of ordinary  ���������smoothness an iron surface will bite sufficiently 'for most purposes, and will ascend  moderate grades with facility.  A method of 'gradually changing the speed  4>f revolution in the driving wheels, while tbe  a peed of tlie piston and the power of the engine remain unchanged, is a great desideratum in engines of this clafcs.
