ia before the people as.a candidate for Governor, he wili condescend to explain how he
cuuno to be convicted of perjury by. thirty-
ibiir witnesses, in "Wakawak, Cochin China, in
VM)Y>, the intent of which perjury was to rob a
poor native widow and helpless family of a
meagre plantain patch, their only stay and
support in their bereavement and their desolation. Mr Twain owes it to himself, as-well
as to the great people wJbose suffrages he aska,
to clear this.matter up.. Will he do it?"
I thought I should burst with amazement!
Such a cruel, heartless * charge���I never had
seen Cochin China!. I never had beard of

Tlie task is too  great even for the herculean spirits of our  hardy pioneers, especially when tbe sinews of  war are deficient; and we can imagine no  plan: which would, have a --greater tendency to  improve  the  couhtry  than the immediate  p rosecu tion of an accii rate survey thro ugh  the regions we have referred to above.   The  cost would; be; a mere^ trifle 5 and we firmly  believe that every do liar : expended in such  research would ia the coarse of one or two  years be rep ai dV to the Col on ial exchequer  tenfold in hard cash, by the taxation derived  from a vastly increased reproductiveypbpn-  latiouV without taking into account the prospective benefits which muBt inevitably result  thereafter.       y-,yy;;-;:.y :���������..:,. .-��������� yx  ��������� y'���������'.:���������,., *',.��������������������������������������������� -*���������'    ������������������������������������vv.'.. ���������  Editor Skntixex, :-rWe see from your  answer to oiir last that the dqcumeat referred  to in our last letter was not referred by the  Grand Jury to-the Assistant Judge of the Su-  preme Court, as we were led to pelieTe.���������  Su ch ,b ein g th e case, we sh ail al te r onr course  of 'redress ; an d seek it; in the Su pre me Court  at ite next sitting in .Cariboo; for we cannot  ���������beiieye that ������������������ that tri bii nal wit I sane tion the  injustice of collecting $100 licenses, when tbe  law, as we understand it, requires that $30  shall be the amount for such license.  It-appears that our present Magistrate collects a the higher license ��������� oa; the supposition  that. before the expiration 6f aiich 1 icense  there in i^b tbe the p umber of i nhab i tan ts pre.  Bcribe4 by law, in an ch district j but it also  appears that when the aumber of inhabitants  does not increase as ahticipated, he forgets to  return-the moneyf as is proved by the nonreturn ;of the mobey collected for the Jn 1 y  termi of last year in Vanwihkle. and a $100  license is again dei^arided for:_'tibe January  term, with .the; promise of returning the $70  if Jtlie i number of inhabitants prescribed by  law: does not exist at the: expiration of tbe  j icense. ���������" As $30 licen ses are granted to tli ose  resi di rig outside of Van wi tiki e, and the iiii m -  ber of inhabitan*s is about equally distributed  at on g the ere ek, the iahabitan ts of Van wi n kle  cannot but;feel it an iinposition 0n them, a?  rib mo re prote e.ti'oh. is afforded them than, to.  those who pay $30 ; and only ��������� one firm has  paid tbe -higher, license, and. this under pro-"  test. The��������� 0tfeers- refuse to pay the high rate,  and: the consequence is that the firm .who have  paid the high license apply for the return of  the $70^ or protectioa accordingly, as others  are belling without)any license. It seems.  however, thai the^Magistrate is unwilling to  reiurn the money he has once got.h0Id of.  but is not very sangume about having the  law ori his Bide, as no steps have been taken  to enforce payment from those refusing to  pay. Wby our Magistrate has feasen-this unjustifiable step is not quite; clear, for he has  not even stationed an officer at Van winkle  to protect the inhabi tan te; and as we cannot  but admit his impartiality on the bench, it  must be attributed to his sense of the necessity of 4he government to raise funds. We  have no objection to pay onr ratio of taxation  with the rest of the colony; but to beses-  pecially honored with the Magistrate's attention iu t'kis respect, we''think ueitber just, or  right.
