The rivalry of cities is older than authentic  biatbity.ihu.df-\ seven cities strove for the honor of being the bir.th place of Homer; for three  centuries Sparta and Athens contended for  supremacy ; Rome Subdued Alba Longa and  destroyed Carthage, lu fact cities in the  early history of tliv������ world bore the same relation to each other Unit nations* do.now. Cities under thesame government however were  seldom known to /strive except in friendly  emulation; tbey were generally unanimous  and united. The founders of dynasties were  also the builders of great cities in which they  ;i'esTdedyiro4- ^h������se.cUie^,b.e^aine jhe_ seats of  thei r res p ee! i ve go ve rn me n ts; *: Su ch ��������� weIVNiii-  evah, Rome, Constantinople and St. Peleri-  biirjxir.   The emulation of cities lias long since  spirit of past ages hasW?"���������* andcl -  islied,not by cities foreign to sacb oliei, but  hv'tL cities ot this province; and tliat too  Sa matter of not; nn,chn^a^^  diirih*-'the present year.   Although.tut uov  ��������� crnrae'n ofllritish Columbia has tnc shortes  ���������S     any on the face of the globe^anc  ^ffi&ftortp.pbKUca lustory of a  other covurnments, living.and dead, ytt it  Soffiriable to select .���������������****$������������  in the two provuices eetiaiucivsji :������������ ������^^ ....  best right, for sundry reasons, to entertain the  government.y .Nor is there anything wonderful about this desire of cities, for tho large  oiies wish to ��������� have the go vernment as an ornament or a curiosity, and: Smaller, ones as a  casual advantage. It is not wonderful there-  f o re. th at V ictoVia as well as Ne vv \Ves tm i nster  has found reasons to show why it should become the Capital of this colony' and it is but  right that these reasons should be duly heard  as it is likely they will be when the Governor's promised message with regard to the selection of the Capital will be sent down to the  House, in which no doubt the reasons for his  choice of a place on the mainland will be fully  explained. It is.very much to be regretted  . that the very first subject brought before the  new council should be a sectional one, and  introduced with so much bitter feeling; judging from the spirit of the press it would appear as if those two cities were inclined \o annihilate each other in tho issue. Victoria  maintains tbat the question should bedecided  by a majority, and New Westminster that it is  a question of prerogative. Although this is  n ot a matter o f the first ini p o r tan ce to Cari-  boo, yet it cannot be denied but that the  minors have; a choice and that their sympath-  ies are with Victoria. Many things have cpu-  ���������VS^^^^iaaa^e-'-jfckfe!:;feejmg^.-many--;of the  miners have wintered for years in Victoria  a nd formed' a large circle of acqiiain tart ces.  whose views in politics they have adopted  and whose feelingsithey cherish. Forwarders  who haye supp Iied bur traders reside in Vic-  torta, and many of the inhabitants of this district lived in Victoria before New Westminster had a local habitation or a nanie ; besides  many of the Victorians have been extensive  prospectors in the. mines, investing largely in  some of the heaviest undertakings. Nor Is  this all. the miners have conceived a dislike  for New Westminster, and nurse a strong prejudice against the place; we have failed to  discover the original cause of this strong feeling against the latter city, but it certainly  , does exist an.1 has been increasing for years.  The assertions made at New Westminster that  the miners were under the control ot Victoria  politicianvthough untrue, has tended to unite  rather th a n -to se para te th e p o I i tica I in te rests  of the City of Victoria and the district of Cariboo. Whether the relationship' that existed  b e twee n th ese two. sec tio ns was ft 11 ly j ustifi  ab le o r no t wh en they we re i n di ffe're rtt co 1  onies we are not prepared to say, but if the  relationship continues to exist after the union  it will be perfectly legitimate and the united  influence of those two sections must eventually be recognized by the Government. With  regard to the seatof government question,  bo waver,, it cannot be called a .common interest, for the .city of Victoria demands tke x&~  moval of the Capital thither as a right, while  the district of Cariboo only asks for it on account of t* preference ; and nnlesa the Gov  eermeiit show an unjust partiality to New  tVeslmiiisler or a neglect of the interests of  Victoria, tbi* district is not likely tu do more  jtMlie matter than it has done and that was  'to express by"'petition a wish. Jhat Victoria  should be the Capital of British Columbia.  It would be well if this question could be  reinoved from ;h'.s vexed cousideration ai; o-  gether, either by laying it over tor a season  or by referring it, as did the Canadian government, to a disinterested person, for it Is  evident that/he majority are in favor of Victoria, and whether, right or wrong, they suspect the Executive ot more or less partiality  towards New Westminster. An easy solution  of the difficulty for the wean time would be  to adopt Lord Drrrbam's plan when he united  the Can ;djs; he gave the Canadians an itinerant seat of -government four years in one  proviuce and four years in the other alternately, which lasted for twenty, years, and at  tijc time this arrangement was made.no other  possible settlement.of this question could  have satisfactory to .both provinces, and it  seems to us that this is almost a similar case.  It appears very likely even now that this seat  of government question wiU assume undue  proportions during this session, and perhaps  give a pretext for a delay of more important  legislation, which could not be tolerated if it  did not claim to have its origin in fervent  wishes for tbe public welfare, and consume  Tn illfbt rt id le* con tests- tbat-energy rwbicb- the  colony has so much need of by affecting and  expressing sensations of indignation which  bear no proportion to the thing itself; the  large hands and feet pf a dwarf always seem  to have devoured,hif statue. It is.to be hoped that this question will -be settled if settled'  at alt, ih such a w!iy as not to leave a great  deal for other legislators to undo at some  future time, and that our Council wili not permit themselves to fancy that they have done  a thing when they shall have only Jrit  upon an expedv������.it for putting off the do  ing. Accurate returns from all the financial,  commercial, nauticol, military, and meteorological departments should be made out at  each city and compared. The nature and ex  tent of tbe sandbar at the mouth of tbe Fraser  should be fully reported. There should also  be a report on^ the safety of navigating the  Georgian gulf with flat bottomed stern-wheel  steamers and on many other siibjects. It is  only by comparing such returns, and by the  introduction of facts which must at last be  acknowledged and acted upon that this question can be settled free from the .'charge of  expediency on the one hand and impractibi-  lity on the other, and be removed from the  interference of men whose minds oh this subject at least seem to be riding on their feelings.  Everything that is honorable should be done  to convert the spirit of jealously now existing  between the two cities into one of reciprocity,  and if they will not be reconciled, one of them  at least and perltaps both shall receive the  doom of rival cities���������" Carthago est delenda."  CWWE*  yggaw  LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.  Mr. Cornwall, of Ashcroft, has refused to  take a seat in the Council as a magistrate for  a very sensible reason; he wants tb be paid  for travelling to the seat of Government and  legislating for months. Mr. Nicbol, of Vancouver Island, lias also declined the honor of  a seat for some 'reasou or other, there is a  seat vacant for each colony. A difficulty has  already arisen in the House between the  members of Vancouver Island and the Gov-  erriment with regard to the IJhibh Act and the  Constitution. ������������������ Vancouver Island claims gyg  presentatibn of eight; members; the'Attorney-  General cttdeaypured first to quibble and fai 1-  ing in the attempt had the questiton postponed  as being out of order, before the Governor's  speech had been passed. Mr. Young sits In  Council as Treasurer, he is from Vancouver  Is I and j with him Vancouver Island would  have eight members, without him only seven.  This question came up again after the reply  to the Governor's speech, and was settled by  the Attorney-General taking the only position  left him which was, that the Governor can do  as he p 1 eases in the tnatter. In considering  the Governor's speech it was moved by Dr.  Helmcken, seeondetl by Mr. DeCosinos, that  the following addition be made to clause 7 :  ���������* That it is the general desire of the people  that the seat of Government be at Victoria.^  This amendment gave rise to considerable  discussion and was finally withdrawn until  the House should receive the Governor's message on that question. It is not usual of late  years to move amendments to the address  from th e th rone in iLegts I a tu res eve n w ti e n  the opposition is in a majority, and this motion seems very much out of place as the subject is sure to be re-opened, before the end of  session. The Governors speech was severely  i criticised by Mr. DeCosmos. Among the no-  | tices of motions on the 30thjult. was the fol  j lowing by Mr. Pemberton: " That a copy of  his Excellency's instructions and commission  ! be liirnisnad to tbte Gouueii."    It appears  ,ven now that the present Councilj������ ������ J*������|  imnrovement on the one of .past, years ; tin  S Secretory and Attorney-General are  compelled to malce explanations, ami ���������������to  GovUor-General himself |������ aske for his  '��������� papers." The standinR orders of the House  are ilso to ^.e amended >by mo rolls of the  House. On th* whole rt. s is lihel^to ta ������  interesfinK and lively session; we hope it may  lie n short nnd oseftil one.  NEW ADVEHT1SBMENTS.  I  S!

Nevertheless, like all '������������������"other.  communities, we possess amoral, social; aud'  political standing of our own, and lour very  .'���������:seclusionisan^advantage to;iis.tostudy;pur  conditioo.

AVhatever may be the opinion we hold of  ourselves, that pur social condition is bad,  r our political worse, and that our moral condition is by far the worst cannot be denied.  Facts are stubborn things.   We; will draw the  ..: our taini and vtake an; insight at the state of.  affairs amohgstyus; the solvency of a met*-!  chant must be in a desperate strait if he shrinks  from the investigation������of his own affairs.      ;  from the ;proud aristocrat to ��������� &: meaii"'dlP;  picable city vagabond.;; a mixture> of ihcn of  ���������; .good;standing and unimpeachable character  with the outcasts of society iu the shape of  swindlers, ^thieves, and even those whose  hands are dyed with -In-* blood of their fellow  creatures.    The great barrier of rank which  Exists in most Countries is entirely broken  down amongst us, and each man considers  himself on an equaifooting with his neighbor,  yet,even here, ���������'money makes the man" to a  great extent.   Let a *������an be, ever so ignorant  'and unrefined if his'pockets are well lined  with;the yellow metal his; society is courted,  1 and his:babUsetc. are4mita,tefcp It is!g. fact-  and a deplorable one, that wherever a /person  of good education and refine^ mamaers comes  in continual contract with the Vulgar and ignorant, the language "and manners of the latter are addp ted by the former.

We can complain of the heavy taxation, the want ot retrench me nt and reform, but whea the time  comes for action our deeds go against pur-  selves.   We have nc-reason to complain for  ��������� the want of politicians, ievery man is such ;  .��������� even those who never gave politics a thought  at home, and striplings :;whQ?&tri&w no-jspre  about ppUtfC3 than the. mere name, all became  politicians and elegtwi t  stunip orators when  they breathe the air of the mountains of Cariboo  Neither have we cause to complain for want  '���������of interest in political matters, for the political intrigues, acts and requirements of the day  are discussed pro and con within the walls of  every cabin on our creeks.   What we complain of and condemn jiistly is the want of  consistency amongst us.   When the roots of a  tree are rotten it would be folly to expect  the branches to be in a healthy state; the  Government itself is corrupt, and the. electoral districts are thereby contaminated.   What  -the old administration was, we knew, what  the present one will be, we can but presume.

The hour was approaching for the departure of the New Haven steamboat from her  (berth at New York, and the usual crowd of  passengers and friends of passengers, newsboys, fruit venders, cabmen and dock loafers  were assembled on and about the boat.    We  were gazing at the motley crowd from the  foot of the deck stairs,  when our attention  ���������was attracted by the singular action of a tall,  brown Yankee, in an immense wool hat, chocolate coat and pantaloons and a fancy vest.  He stood near the starboard paddlebox, and  scrutinized sharply every female who came  -on board, eves^ now and then consulting an  enormous silver bull's eyo silver watch, which'  he raised from tbe depth of a capacious fob  by means of a powerful steel chain... After  mounting guard iu  thia manner, he dashed  furiously down the   gang-plauk and up the  wharf, re-appearing on board almost instan-  . taneously with a flushed face, expressing the  ���������itra'os'fc anxiety.   This series of operations he  perform e d several times, after which hern sh-  >jd about, the  boat  -wildly, aud  hopelessly  ���������/ejaculated:.',  .'���������;. "What's tie time of day ?

At this moment the huge paddle wheels  began to paw the 'wa ter.. and the :walking:  beam descended Theavfly, sirdSing 'tfie'*: iiiige  fabric to the centre. All who were not going  to New'Haven went ashore. The hands began to haul in the* gang-plank; the fasts were  already cast loose.'   ;'  " Leggo that plank!" roared the Yankee,  collaring one of the hands. "Drop It like a  hot potatoe, or I'll throw you into the dock."  " Yo���������yo!'' shorited the men1 in chorus; as  they heaved on the gangway.0".  . " Shet up, you braving* donkeys," yelled the  Yankee, ���������' pr there will be an ugly sort of  work."' ;-"'.-���������'., . ���������'���������'.. yp[y -  :   ; '  But. tlie plank was got aboard, and the boat  splashe il past the pier. Iii an instant the Ya ri;  kee pulled ofif his coat, flung his hat beside it  on the deck, and rushed wildly oil tho guard  " Are you drunk or crazy ?" cried apassen-  ger seizing him.       .'  . "I'm'going to. fling myself into the dock  and swim .ashore," cried the Yankee. " I  m'ustn'tleave yairy'Arin alone in New York  city. You may; divide my'baggage among  ye.

A very pretty young^ woman, in a blue  bonnet, white Canton crape shawl," pink dress  and brown boots came towards him. The big  brown Yankee uttered one stentorious shout  of"Sairy Ann,'V claspiug her in his arms in  spite of her struggling, and kissed her heartily right before all the passengers;  ({Where did you come from?" he inquired.  " From the ladies cabin," answered the  bride. "You told.me half past four, but I  thought. I'd'make sure and come at four."  "A little too punctual," said the Yankee.

History informs us that during the middle ages the Emperor of Germany  reclaimed three crowns : that of Germany,  whicb was of silver, and was assumed at Aix  la Chapel le ; the crown of iron, which had  formerly been peculiar to the Lombard kings  anil was assumed af. Pavia, and  the imperial  crown, which was received at Rome, and was  surmounted by a mitre similar to that of bishops, but somewhat smaller.    The crown of  iron, though chiefly of gold, derived its name  from an iron band that encircled it in the interior, and which was said to have been made  from one of the nails which  served in the  crucifiction of Christ.   This crown wras worn  by Charlemagne, the first Emperor of Germany, oyer 1000 years years ago.   Preserved  in Italy after the devastation' of the. Empire  of the West, founded by that illustrious monarch, it was worn by Napoleon the First when  that mighty conqueror was  crowned King of  Italy at Milan ; and it subsequently  became  one of the crowns of the Emperors'of Austria  as masters of the Lombard0-Venetian kingdom.   Venetia being now restored  to Italy,  this relic rlghtfullyrbelongs to the King of  Italy; and hence the claim winch has been  made for its restoration*  i- ��������� .j      ........ -,w~.  .  ^      ,.w..-'vu     .v.    ...v....,,    ......Vlivg,  Pies, Cakes, or anything in our line fo? their value, and  will be on hand at all hours, day or night, to supply  the wants of our pHrons.  jggpGood Stabling convenient to the establishment.
