Angt o-Saxori : in sti-  Itntionp, bnsed on this principle, have brought  out the world's greatest statesmen.  * It courts observation, that the patient merit  of  the quacks belonging; to the Lycurgus  school, of some ten ,.years standing*.'in this  olony. have been spurned by unworthy-irre-  ponsible relations, from the fact that the  vacant Attorney-Generalship bas been  be-  to wed on;a geKtieman imported from another  colony.\ whereas !f the irresponsible relations  ubsistiog at present between the people and  ���������the Government were resting upon a responsible basis, the benchers would not have been  overlooked, many of whom are well deserving of the position.  Historians speak of D. P.?a as being of long  ractice, and with some,consistency go as far  ack as the birth of Cain"; but ancient maim-  cript furnishes no evidence that EscnUpius  lelivered Cain, or that Lycurgus ever offi-  ialed as prosecuting attorney at his trial for  he killing of .his brother Abel, but the latest  nd most authentic record is that two of the  acuity have been delegated to Canada to as-  ist in administering to a constitutional disease.  nd it is earnestly hoped they will prescribe  uch physic as will restore it to a sound,  ealthy and populous condition.  Historians -may also point out facts that  ee government and happiness in some cases  ave not pulled together, wfoich ia admitted,  in the best regulated political families  oubles will sometimes arise; but that is no  ason why .other    political   communities  Should not be governed on responsible prin-  ^liiples, concomitant with prosperity and hap-  iness.  England, with a responsible and free form  f government by the people, is not unat-  ������nded with happiness or propperity, and we  o not know what school we have a more  gSjatural or legitimate -irfgjrt t& follow and copy  after than that of the nation under whose flag  we were born and educated to believe that  responsible Institutions were constitutionally  a part of our birthright as a free people.  .If; this colony has not shot ahead as rapidly  as we at one:time anticipated, Its backwardness cannot certainly be shouldered on the  government, for any ordinary observer having  any knowledge whatever of the difficulties  with, wpich the development of tbe resources  of the country isattended must certainly feel  satisfied that it is not the fault of :the govern^  ment that /the co 1 o ny has not been p rogres-  s.i've.... Personal^ attacks on the/ officials are  wanton and uncalled tor.; and will* have, no  effect /whatever in; bringing ', about the corft  smnmation of. tbe much desired change in the  presentorder of things. ��������� In justice,. to the  official staffs it can with truth be said that, on  th e w h ole they are gen tl em en -Aeon r teoiis an d.  hpporabley just and impartial iri tbe;exercj$e  of their duty.'

Here is a brief sketch of what is  going on among the English steamship com  panics just now :���������Tbe Gunard Company is to  increase iis fleet of: 20 steamers by four new  vessels of 3.500 tona Kiirden each ; the In man  line has lately added t#6' more ships to its  former lj5>- the Guiori llbej with six steameis  on the station, has two more of 3,000 tons  each upon the' stocks; tbe National Steam  Company is to add fonr Vessels of 4-;500-tons  each to its present fleet pf eight; and the  Southern Steamship, a new company, shortly  puts on five vessels, aggregating 10.000 tons.  This sudden swelling of the 4.0 steamers heretofore/plying into a navy of 6G��������� an increase  of. over 33 1.-3 per cent.���������is for tbe trade be-  tween'LiverpooI'and the United States alone.  There is yet to be taken into account the case  of; the- Mont real .Ocean Steamship Company..  which, to jts.seyenteen vessels 6{"46,066 tons  burden, is soon to add two steamers more.  The South American fleet numbers 24 large  'ships���������six times as.many as last, year,: which  with those of the West Indian line run up the  total of steam shipping from Liverpool to the  new world to very close on one hundred large  ships.built and building���������while those to  .various>parfcs of Asia,-Africa and the Medlter-  ranean.amount to as many;^more.    .

I slept at night outside the  city, anywhere, and I used to purchase food  from the shops of B tiny as, Kberaa and Pairaa  I got food from them three successive days.  To-day has been a great day with me. I  wanted to kill an infidel; but by the will of  God I failed in killing him. I stabbed a soldier in the Bazaar with the dagger produced.  I had been looking out for the last three days  for an Englishman to kill. When I got alongside of the European soldier I drew my dagger and made a stab at him. He fell down,  and I was trying to stab at him again ; he  seized the dagger with both hands. The bystanders then came: up and seized me."���������  [Bombay Gazette.

Tbe  other day he shut up his shop rather earlier  than usual, and hiring a cab, drove to the  next street and bore away Ere, the young  and pretty wife of Adam Oese. \ He then  drove on one street further and from one of  the houses came another young and pretty  woman, Mrs John Lloyd. The three, with an  immense array of baggage, went immediately  to the railway station and started for the West.  Mrs Lloyd's husband was;keeping out of the  way on account of one or two forgeries, but  Adam started in haste after his Eve, and captured the guilty trio at Pittsburg, That a  man should run away with-the wife; of another  is, unfortunately, a very intelligible proceeding ; but that this Rose; should care to/place  himself between two thorns is only to be exceeded in marvel by the fact that "the two  women had no objections to the arrangement  Telegraph to Sodth America���������The telegraphic line between Valparaiso and Buenos  Ayres, across the Andes, will soon be erected.  Messrs. Clark and Co,, of Valparaiso, have  succeeded in arranging this most important  enterprise j. the first portion of the line is now  being shipped in London for Rosario. As the  Panama, West India and Pacific line will be  extended to Peru/this will be united with the  Transandine line from Valparaiso, and as the  Argentine and Brazilian Governments bave  granteid a concession for another cable to be  laid from the coast of Brazil to the West Indies, there will be in a short time a direct  communication with the whole of South  America, by two lines. The telegraph between Valparaiso and Buenos Ayres will be  constructed entirely with iron poles, and the  best materials that can be obtained in England. The Argentine Government has granted  a subsidy to this telegraph company of ������6000  a year, and that of Chili, will add a| least  ������2,000 xsore.

THE CARTBOO SENTINEL  "SATURDAY. JUNE 4. 1870,  OUR MINERAL RESOURCES. -;/ ;/  Brilt?h Columbia contains a variejy,an&an  ftbu n d ance of m in eral h.     All that li as. hi-  therto been done to work the mines only goes  to show tbat as a* mineral conn try British Co*  lumbla bas only arrived at the chrysalis stage  of development.    Liberal laws have  I)een  made to,enconra������e the working of the;minesf  in the colony, bntUbey have failed to attract  capital without which  the efforts made to  develop them- must  remain  as at   present  totally inadequate to tlieir ^vJent.   It is fre-  truently urged as a com plaint that the surplus  capital of tbe mother country se������ks investment in foreign count lies in preference to the  .colonies, where it could be as profitably em  ployed.   At tbe present, tinie a;;gentleman,  representing a Isirpre number of English cap-  Ualists,. is engaged in the task-of recovering  possession of a large interest in the Erie railr  road, which has been actually confiscated by:  means of corrupt judges instigated by;what  are commonly ca 11 ed siiiart men.   I n one/of  the Central American republics ^adother;instance of the risk attending tho inyes.tment ,of;  British capital outside of the pale/of feritisb  law. recently occurred.    In the latter_case  "Tl"was not the" act. of a few i ndividhals;,; but  the entire IjegisJature, in solemn deliberalionv  with the approval andproclamatjoh of the  President, virtually Confiscated;, 75 per;petit:  of certain bondy principally held/by British  . capitalists..  Verily, republies are; ungrateful;  W i th t h ese facts, a n d al so the. fact that of;. all  the United- States Massachusetts/is :;the only  one which has satisfied its obligations in boinj  b ef ore th e eyes o f capi tai i sts, Aiine/^yould >. i ra-  agine that in future the investment/of;capital;  would be sought for outside of the ��������� domains  of republicanism.   The  British;colonies af-  ford ^reat scope for safe and ^profitable employ men t o f rap i t a 1, a n d the c o m pi a int. ab o ve  referred to is not justifiable byy.faptlthepapjse.  . lhe capitalists of Britain have invested largely  in.tbe colonies whenever a fair oppprtunily  for doing so was brought to their "notice.' It  is the fault of this colony thiat but little has  been done to w a rd t ale i n g advantage, of .the  Btirpliis capital which goes begging for safe  and profitable. investment.    Governor- Seymour promised to do something for the colony by drawirig the attention of/ capi talists  to its resources and endeavoring., to-obtain  the means for development, but his good intentions were thwarted by thepolitical demagogues of the lower country, who have never  ceased in effort to bring the government, people and country into, contempt 'for the past  ten years.    Now, Governor' Musgrave  has  promised to draw attention to the resources  ofthe country, and do something toward en-  , cou raging population and capital hither, but  tbe Victoria demagogues are/after him with  their dirty sticks and are badgering him as  badly : as tbey did bis. predecessor. f Now,  British capitalist have invested largely in the  California and Nevada mines/and are doing  so now iu White Pine.    Why should they not  favor this colony with some of their surplus  cash, since there is no doubt whatever tbat  .   gold, silver, copper and coal abound in H ?  Speaking for Cariboo, we think that there  never was a time  more favorable than the  present for asking assistance for the development of our mines.   Omineca has brought a  considerable number of men into the colony.  and Cariboo has received a fair proportion of  j the immigration.   Labor is therefore cheaper  tharrcver it has been in,this section.   A large  number of men are reported to be idle in the  neighboring States and territories, and labor  is settling to a lower level generally than has  hitherto been observed on the Pacific Coast  California has regulated the labor market on  thia coast, and while the Golden State offered  employment and high wages to the bulk of  the working population, the neighboring communities and British Columbia have not received that, proportion of/labor wbicb/their  .resources can emp toy,    The Pacific R all way  :������as produced tr great change.   The Golden  State cannot now, when brought into close  competition with the Eastern States, pay her  wbrkingv population the customary difference  between the price of labor, on/tjh^;Atlantic  and; Pacific, a������oV henceforth; a raoTf uniform  value niUstnecessarily prevail.. This change  has/also aft^cted thje price of labpr?in Cariboo���������  and if capital could be obtainedtoppen up a  larger field for employment,there:^no doubt  that a large addition to our population could,  be; gained ��������� from: :the;surplus-.il.&o'r/'-of our  neighbors..; The-i Pacific railway, too. while  haying brought California into, easier and  cheaper communication with the East, has of  course done the sarao: for.; British; Columbia.  and recen t ar ri val s by���������.th e rail road fib o w that  the new facilities for;v reachingthis, colouy  would be made use of/if our;. resources ;weye;  better, known abroad;.;.-Unfortunatelyv nolit;  leal matters have absorbed too. mnch attention; ' and the more;. .material .interests of the  colony have suffered; wanton neglect.

Losinsr his hold of the rope by the sudden  jerk thus caused, he fell to the bottom of the  shaft, a distance of 50 feet. Two of his countrymen were at the windlass at the time. An  inquest was held on Thursday by Dr Bell,  and a verdict returned in accordance with  the accidental nature of tbe fatal occurrence.

He(theCoratnissibner);  would, however, consider the point as ;;'td  whether-tbeMming Ordinance gave,discovery  ���������claims according /to-the number of men in a  company  or according to  the  number /of  claims.:.  The evidence of plaintiffs was in .effect as  follows:���������Adam Ross. staked the.SOO/ feet  and afterward the 300 feet.. and the stakes  were still where first placed, arid he had never  claimed ground in front bf the Mount Hollow  or Dunbar claims. The reason why. tbe record described the 800 feet as a mile from^  Van Winkle and below the Dunbar claim was  that there were no claims adjoining'below or  above, and it wa3 therefore difficult to define  the location with greater precision. He did  not locate with the view of getting near the  Dunbar claim, but because .he had sunk a.  shaft in 1864 and knew the ground; Peter  Brown and Win. Swainston (of the Mount  Hollow co.) corroborated the.above by testifying that on the day when Ross staked the  800 feet thev also wanted to pre-empt ground  in the ereek and had commenced staking, but  after staking about 300 feet they met the Ross  co.'s upper stakes, which were about 900 or  1000 feet from the Dunbar lower line as  pointed out to them by Ross. James Cum-  mings. who bad pre-empted 100 feet above  the Ross upper line, also testified to tbe same  effect; Mr Hunter, C.B.. produced a map, of  the ground and testified that irom the upper  line of the Ross co. to tbe upper line of the  Lightcing co. the distance along the valley of  the creek was 1752 feet.  Charles Kendall testified thathe had worked  for the Ross co.. and tbat Stewart- (of Ross  co.) had shown him the upper stake of the  800 feet, which "was 100 feet above the lower  line of the Mount Hollow claim. There were  S00 feet takou up above that and transferred  to' lb e lloss eciC at* Si jjer in feres t. .'S i,u art also  told hiiitliat-Jf be could sell out of tbe Ross  co. he would/take up\the^vacant; ground between . tjie Ross and the Lightnnig? co/s. : The,  u p per -30 0 feet: of the Ross co. /would ex tend  up. to ab o ut/250 feet of tbe Dun bar 1 o we r 1 i ties  and ov*r 300 feet above the;' line In/ the ��������� siir-i  vey.
