A colored man, named .Tames Wilson, was  discovered in the bold of the Rising Star recently, bo having remained there since she  left Aspinwall, nearly eight days previously.

The  truth is, there is,such  good feeling among tbe population of. Can-.  boo that they are ready to participate-in any;  day of national rejoicing.   Another reas.op;.is",  >'that the mirth and exercises of tlie. day offer;  excellent opportunities for   the   relaxation,  necessary to counteract tlie effects of the Hard  and monotonous labor which the''miner;';'.u'n-'  dergoes.

A kindly, brotherly feeling between  the  two  branches of the Anglo-Saxon race,  who govern the greatest part of the civilized  world, is most desirable.   No greater calamity to the progress and advancement of the  human race generally could happen than a  conflict between them ; and if the  harmonious feeling  which  generally prevailed on  Monday last were more extensively, spread,  no such calamity ever would happen.  native bnthe'a'fstrief where the gold is found.

It is remarkable that the  gold is v found in no less than three distinct  strata, all formed by the action of water and  lying directly one above the other, the uppermost being within a foot or two of the  surface, just below the turf.- This would lead  to the presumption that the sources are not  farfexhsfcant, and that at various times, some  not far remote, deposits had been made at  the various heights observed. Hence the  general impression seems to be that the matrix  will be found in the hills immediately above  Kildonan.

With such an  audience the amateurs could not fail to develop their best efforts, and judging from the  hearty applause, and. continuous bursts of  laughter, we are justified in saying that tho  performance gave complete satisfaction.  The young beneficiary was especially applauded, and she bad evidently labored hard  to convince everyone tbat she was worthy-of  the substantial benefit which was given her.  As most of our readers were present, we will  not weary them with a criticiam, especially.  as they seemed entirely satisfied.

Cariboo contributes somewhere^ in tbe neighborhood of  $10,000 to the public revenue. The Fire  Brigade cannot raise means sufficient.to  place the. organization in. a. state,of .efficiency.

ig I did
As I was ia the garden one mornin
As I approached a lilac bnsh tbero were one
kneeling down at prayer ;
In my imagination I tboughtlheard a throng
Of swift-winged angels as I stepped along.
As I moved on further I saw a beauteous
As though it was an angel just come from the
It was as a marble statue���the flesh was off
ber cbeek ;
Cte~aV.a dowuy
I dare not approach her
I stepped a little from her and fell upon my

And whilst in meditation I felt a gentlebreeze
Just passing through the myrtle tree and
brewing over me.
Whilst I still was kneeling there came a gentle shower
As though it was from the heavens and watered all my flowers. R. G.
