It repealed the common school  act of Vancouver Island,/andWas in tended  to establish a uniform system ;of education  throughout the colony. But it was especially  intended to give facilities for establishing  schools in those parts of 'the colony where  . there. is a small number iiof chlldren^yand  ; where public schools are^ most necessary$''������������������  cause of the total absence;of \any other kini  of schools. Nothing, however^seems to ''hfcye.  been done towards putting the ordinance into  operation until a week 'ago, w&eri the acting  governor announced in the^ Go^rhment Gar  zette that several places in which there were  schools, and in others where they were asked  for, were to-become school toiiricts u-nder the  new ordinance.; Among: theA places named  are Clinton, Lytton, Langley/ Burrard Inlet  and Cedar Hill.   In none of ;���������;these places is  there a greater number ^of children than isi to  be found in Barkerville^and ^chfieldyand  none of those places contribute half as much  to the public revenue as: -we do herei;  It may  seem strange that Barkerville a^ ]fe  :,���������_.'���������; have been overlooked; fc������ ^eiactin^ pernor.  It ia hot, however, &at^mcerJa:f^  such oversight appearsjftoint the list of places  declared to be school dfistncts^JIt is the fauii  of the people of BaVkerv^  themselves.   Had they peMonei for the establishment of a school here they might have  had tbeir prayer granted. The new ordinance  does not propose to create a school district  except after the people have petitioned for  the same.   Now, there is just as much reason  for establishing a school in; this: district as  there is any of'the places above-named, and  ifythe parents of children here wish to take  advantage of the new law they ought to forward a petition to the acting governor, who  will no doubt be glad of the opportunity to  distinguish his administration by doing a good  action for Cariboo.   The provisions of the  new ordinance are liberal, but not so much  so as when the bill was first introduced into  the Council.   The senior member for Victoria  succeeded in mangling the provisions of the  ; bill so that greater difficulty in its operation  would tend to prevent the establishment of  schools in^the districts wherenone existed,  ,....- and probably, witha- view to concentrate" as1  much as possible all. the educational facilities.     ^ w  ~^���������_  within.tbelim.snf Victoria.

There are  considerab ly m ore th an twelve ch ildren b0re  of the ages mentioned, and we think that .it  wouldibe ''''a0'i'(^^Amiitei to comply wUh^he  pecuniary condition, especially as the local  board v^li l^ye;j������ower tio levy a tax upon  every male resident above the age of 21 years.  There are about 25 or 30 children in Bar^  yiUej Richfield and Vicinity, and a considerable number are :at schoolin other, parts of  the y cblpnyiy whose I parents   reside 'here^  Barents complain,- and j ustly tod, of the great  expense tbey are put to in sending their chtl-  ton to school in other parts of the colony,  ahd^buld,gladly bring them here if a school  were established.   Others again would.���������bring-'  their families here if there were a school esr  tablished.    Now, why should not these  persons immediately, set; so. work anil: petition  the  governor > fbriijfoe  establishment  of a  school ? jTliey are justly entitled to the same  privileges as parents in those places now declared to fee school districts under the new  law.

The filthy lucre becomes  more precious with its scarcity, and the  dance now most appreciated is that which is  induced by the monotonous music of the  water as it runs over a glittering dump-box.  The temples of Apollo and. Terpsichore are  losing their devotees, who now evince an increasing disposition to frequent those of  Mammon,. In the meantime, subscriptions  for the proposed building of a church are  small and few.   "Whither are we drifting?"

The Weather.���������Rain fell fast and heavy  on Friday last, and we have bad frequent  showers since * that | time. Everybody here  of course knows this, and it would seem  unnecessary to mention the fact, but. every-  everybody interested in the welfare of Cariboo may not know it, and hence the necessity  for alluding, to the fall of rain. While we  write raiu is falling fast, and judging from,  ap pearances we may have raih for a.' consid-  erabie time yet. ;A jgood many men had  been thrown out of work hi' consequence pf  the drought, who will now be enabled to resume their occupation. Piping and ground-  sluicing, which had. been almost altogether  discontinued, has been resumed in many  claims; and the prospects for a good yield of  gold, through the increase of water, are now  very encouraging.    ���������.'./   ,. ���������  Fire Brigade, Attention !���������Drill will take  place this evening, and you are all requested  to attend to test the new hose which'arrived  yesterday.

Too Common.���������A down East girl being  bantered one day by some of her female  friends, in regard to her lover, who had the  misfortune to have but one leg, replied :���������  41 Pooh, I wouldn't have a man with two legs  ������������������they're too common."  Legally Druxk.���������The Wilkenson (Minnesota). Superior Court ha3 decided when a  man is "legally drunk." Said the Judge���������  "Iii is not necessary that a man should be  wallowing, J^^^itch, or bumping his head  . against yq^S|pp, that you may know him  to be drunk, but'whenever ..heJDegins to tell  the same thing over twice, tlgm he's drank"!?;  \ Improvements in* Mummification.���������A a odd  discovery has just been made by a man of  Grenoble,  by  which  it is calculated that  cemeteries   and   graveyards   will    become  superfluous.   At the decease of an individual  the body is plunged into a liquid invented  by the man of Grenoble, and in about five  years   the   individual is turned into stone.  The secret of the petrifaction is known only  to;tbe discoverer.   lie says that in a thousand years' time, if persons will only preserve  their relatives and friends, they will be able  to build houses with them, arid thus live In  residences, surrounded  by tbeirv ancestors!  :.: Altogether an absurdity,;says the Builder. ..y  ���������  'A Fish ^TORY.T-Sixfe Scotch me noshing  near tlie;eoasi;; Recently?caught'.50,00(K]ieiv  -ring in two hours.  .The, sea, literally .boiled  :.wjit|fish and the men Bitnply scooped them-  1 ia fe their b o ats:  Th ey were p aid o nly $ 2 25  for^ the whole; 50,000 by Lb addri biiyers. ��������� ���������  The Alaska Times says:   Alaska can beat  this hollow.

Scene.-���������Ai novel and yet rather  lively sceiie for most of theGpartics.eoncernecl  recently ;/took  place on a Canada railroad.  .'Some bnfe had freighted the bees to a.town  some distance off ; and, during the journey,  the wire gauze, placed over the entrance of  the hive, to allow the bees air, and at the  same time to prevent the^r'escaping, became  somewhat displaced.   The bees made the discovery first, and resolved to " swarm," and  make the rest 6'f the journey in their own  way.   And swarm they did and about the  ears of officials, who for some time made ineffectual . elforte   to   induce   the saucy little  creatures to go back into the hire and be  good.   A dozen or more   passengers,   who  ran .to  the spot to learn the excitement, got  their eyes bunged up as the price for their  curiosity.   But the train started on ; and the  refractory little creatures, who had refused  to return to the hive, were observed on  the  wing a few rods behind the train, doing their  best to keep up, generally coming in, as the  train stopped at the different stations, in time  to sting the brakemen.
