After a good deal of desultory conversation  respecting the wealth and importance of Victoria, which they asserted represented three-  fourths of the capital and population of the  ^colony, the delegation withdrew to consider-  -on t,he course io be pursued, and on return-  } ing stated that they had resolved on having  !the petition forwarded on its own merits.

The balloons with which ex-  peri men ts were made at Wool wich were held  by two new cords fastened to the net-work,  and terminated at two different points on the  grbiind; to give greater, stability to the balloon, and to provide: against one cord snapping, or being cut by the enemyTs fire.

It was found that by practice great skill can  be attained in4 judging of distances,- and the  relative position of mountain gorges, passes,  Hraiis of woods, and Hhe course of streams.  The trials hitherto made have been chiefly  carried on by professional aeronauts wiLh  hired balloons; and it is believed that tbe  British Government have at the present."time  no war balloons in store.  The result of the observations of Captain  Brackenbury and Captain Noble, sent out  from Woolwich on behalf of the English  Government to the respective seats of war,  together with trials and other sources of information, will, it is believed, result in war  balioons being manufactured in the Royal  Arsenal, and that officers of royal engineers,  from generals downwards, will be trained in  their use. ��������� * : ' ���������  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

wa9 . but small, and by no means calculated
to afford encouragement to the amateurs after
their untiring.efforts to afford amusement to
the public arid the trouble they.had gone to
in order to put a play on the boards such as
p reaented last Saturday, " Who Killed Code-
Robin ?" is a two act play originally written
for ihe talented Charles.Matthews, which from
its le1igthx;arid the fact of there being only
four characters, renders it no, light work tor
amateurs to undertake. On the presence-
casion the most diligent attention had been
paid'by every one with the view of making
the piece a decided success, which, as far as
the performance went, it decidedly was, in
spite of the chilling influence which a sparse
auditory inevitably exercises. Mr J.Hudson,
as Jack Raggett, had a very long and-difficult
part to perform, which he rendered with much
aprightliness and feeling \ and Mr Thompson,
as Old Tinkle, well sustained the quiet character of that peaceable old gentleman. Aa
the Mexican heiress,'Satanella, Florence Wilson had an exceedingly long and trying character to personate, needing careful study and
preparation, to which she rendered ample
justice ; and the. change from the wayward,
passionate girl to the subdued and affectionate wife displayed much artistic ability. As
Hannah. Mrs Parker acted in a manner which
most professionals would find it difficult to
excel, displaying the mingled pertness and
vivacity of the smart waiting-maid to perfection. Between the acts, the same lady sang
the favorite comic ditty " The bells keep ringing for Sarah," very pleasingly, the unanimi
ous encore which she received showing the
appreciation of the audience. At the conclusion of the second act, a new amateur singer,
MrW. W. Dodd, made his debut as "Billy
Barlow." in an original local adaptation of
that individual"!! well-known song. It is to
be regretted that the gentleman in question
has so long allowed his light to he hid under
a bushel, as his acting and singing on this occasion showed him to possess talents of no
mean order, calling forth from beginning to
end the rapturous acclamations of the entire

or wounded. Lord Lisgar,Governor-General
of the Dominion, hearing of the mutiny ordered Her Majesty's steamer Talmar to take to

I have been credibly informed that Mr
Edward Tormey, of William Lake. B.C., has
stated publicly, at the Forks of Quesnel river,
that I operated upon his teeth, thereby causing him to suffer from such treatment. Now,
if that statement was made by the said Tormey, it was a wilful falsehood, us I have never
done any dental work for him whatever���not
even as much aa to extract a toolh. I deem
it necessary, for the sake of my professional
character, to make this public denial oi Mr
Tormey's slanderous slatum* nt
