A/A;;:: yHij. a  i :Thei latest -surprise' arises; from the cJCpIo-  1118^ having suddenly come out very strongly;  against Governor Kennedy J land doub tless it  intends, to adybca'te his removal. ' This is the  unkindest cut of all, for who so much /ber  slavered the new man upon his arrival as the  <iCplonist.,. Donb tless Gov! Kennedy is; ex^  tremely unpopular, arid being down he? may  be kicked by the; brave and maghariimous.:  Why he shpiild be so very unpopular is owing tp ihany causes, oyer which he ;had full  control, but not one has caused so much discontent as the supposition that fie has a desire  of taking all power into his ownhand-^gov-  erning: the- people instead of ruling, through  the will of the people���������and of getting rid: of  representative institutions, or at least so modifying, them as to render theia ; only instruments to his- hands. >It is quite��������� possible that  he has no idea or desire of the kind, for it is  by no means clear tp"; outsiders what his desires or opinions niay be, or indeed Whether  he has any of the latter which endure for  more than a day or two. It is guitei probable  he may have had' advisers, but now that W.  A. G.Young has returned possibly he may  redeem himself���������if he cares at all about so  doing���������for after all he may now be only siif-  fering misrepresentation, what his predecessor bore for a long time, and may at the end  be as popular as Sir James is now. Tbe end  of his term���������that may be short if Union is to  take place. His value may not be appreciated until too late!  IMDEPfiNDANCB DAT-  Independence Day was a great festival in  Victoria���������a regular holiday and no mistake.  An immense gathering took place atCadboro  Bay; a sort of gigantic picnic, the partakers  of which Were both Americans and British���������  the latter were very numerous and enjoyed  themselves amazingly. What a .change has.a  quarter of a century produced! The American, ^.evolution has already become almost a  matter of tradition! How soon will these  colonies have to celebrate(?) an indep en dance  day also? There cannot be a doubt that the  policy of, the British Government now is precisely the reverse of that which led to the  separation of America. She now invites her  colonies to prepare to support themselves.  Faith there is no want of holidays in this  eolony, for the people celebrate* both the  British and American ones, and enjoy both  equally well. This is capital���������it ouly requires  Americans to know the British a little better  thai; the Legismture.: bias "spehtf -riot^ less' tliari  fr^'thpiisandf dollars *fo  printing-4the iwhole :pf which hasvji^en: thus  .--���������K  thihg:!:?

In Vancouver Island however the,Government ;is ������ven  worsevl^a^^ranhical, -for-' under tyranny; thp;  Executive can act; with vigor when necessary,  but ours is composed of parts that neutralise  each other.;: The Council, being composed;of  a iriajdrity of: Governmerit officials, can; and  havpf opppsed and stranglect; eyery useful:  measure.: Of course some, perhaps many, of  the.Assembly bills were bad: in principle and  even sent there for deatructioh, b ut such could  not haye been the case with alL , Whence  Uipn such conduct?

The tyrannical Council:  will bejleft put of the question^-rthe very  body which: has caused all the ^mischief-; -but  will the,public he fooled by such an attempt?  Five thousand dollars wasted!. The people's  repre?eritatives treated with contempt.   Well,  if they.suffer-it another session they deserve  the contumely.   The money has not however  been wasted, for independently of the reason  that most of the acts will still be of use, and  must pass during another session, if such a  thing takes place, tlie experience otherwise  gained is,-or ought to be, invaluable both to  Vancouver  Island   and   British   Columbia.  From the example before us let us choose between/a purely tyrannical and a purely representative Government, for the one in Vancouver Island is worse than either; the latter  is powerful for evil but useless lor good.   In  ease of Uiiion of the colonies, Vancouver Island has promised to accept any constitution  her Majesty7s Government may be pleased to  grant, but British Columbia being free from  such foolish promises has none to fulfill, and  therefore, can ask her own terms.    Doubtkss  the affair.s of Vancouver Island will be held  up to show that even the united colonies  are unfit for purely representative Government.   But are representative institutions to  blame here? nothing of the kind ; it is the  want of them, or rather the want of-the removal of ihe tyranny that overpowers them.  Incase of Union then care must be taken  that no officials be appointed to either branch  of the Legislature.   Let them be capable of  election���������but in all cases allow them to sit  'de officio*.-to give information, but not to have"  any vote except they be elected members.  In Vancouver Island we   have a  tyrannical Council who, either by instruction or  choice, wish to centralise the power in the  hands of the Execuliv c;  ���������������j  ithihg iS;talked of in 0regphf but thp superipri ty;  Jof Victoria: to;Portlarid,Afbrwhere there is one.  sjhlpp���������to letiri:the;|brmeacAtherp arp;tweiity tin  tlie:latter^y,This., arisea from the new line tiifi*  tr'ayelyia-Red/Biu*-'^ ���������  PAiPE.1?, /::"' /wA'AAi  .,    ������������������ ���������       '   j-- A  ��������� ���������'��������� -   ������������������ '..:"- .:-!-i-i.'r������ -���������'���������'������������������<.:������������������   :���������"���������'<  George ^  OpFrcBrT-BARKERViLLE.
