The Cosmopolitan, an English paper, ini.al-
liiding to the confederation of the .North'Aiue-
Tican, Provinces, savs :
The  extent of the earth's surface which
���would tbiis come under one government, is so
vast as to transcend all European, analogies.
The area of the three provinces which are
.first'to be united, is above 370.000 square
miles f of the two adjacent islands, 42,000 ;
���of Vancouver.Island, 20,000; of British Columbia, 200.000 ; of Central British America
^and the Hudson's Bay Territory proper, taken
together. :2,750,000 square miles ; or a total
..ateal of ...no t.. le&j. than (in - to iind - num ber&)
3,000,000. square miles.   More than half this
vast region���all beyond the line of perpetual
frost, aa well as those great wildernesses within
that line.where the only vegetable substance is

that part mu3t he given up by man forever to
the absolute rule of barrenness.    But throwing off one; moiety, a million and a half square
milesi still remaiu as the ground plan of the
new dominion.
As; to the climate and productive condition
uud capabill ties of the habitable part, we presume notions just as vague and incorrect are
���entertained by most perso ns in this country.

The stream, however, was found not to lead
to the settled districts of southern Peru, as
has been supposed. Tbe Indians met with
near the sources, had never had coramuhica^
tion with white men, or civilized tribes, and
were ignorant of the use of iron.
In 1805, Mr. Chandlcss undertook a second
journey, with the view of ascending the Aqu-
iry, tbe most important southern affluent of
the Funis, which he thought might possibly
be tho navigable river known as the Madre
di Dios, flowing from the Andes, east of Cus-
co. lie ascended this stream almost nearly
to its source, finding it to terminate, like the
main river, in the midst of trackless forests.
He.then attempted to.cross by land,and hewed away through the forest for nine days, but
was obliged finally to abandon the attempt
Both the Purus and the Aquiry were carefully mapped during both journeys,- and Mr.

surprised by a rising of. the water flooding the
sandbanks, the only places on which he could
find a tract of open ground, he set off down
the stream with all the speed tbe paddles
could master, in order to beat the stream and
reach a place where the banks were yet uncovered.

jgBascended the river nearly to its sources, a dis
������tancc of 1866 miles, finding a good depth of

in some sort their debtor. ;I6 does seem very
bard'that these poor fellows cbitld not at this
moment get credit'for a sacM of flour and: a
piece of bacon, to enable th^ni' to try their
fortune in some new direction. XWe had oc-
casion'last year, to propose the formation of a
kind of prospecting   association,  by  which
.men of ability and integrity as miners, could
obtain the necessary means for going out on
. an exploring cruise.   Our firm impression is
that it would well repay our merchants and
��� traders if such an association was established,
:  and very few among the morefortunateminers
would refuse to contribute to its support.   Of
coursethere.would.be certain   privileges in
connection with the  society involving   the
earliest information of new strikes, and the
. chance of securing, good claims to the members contributing to its funds through the instrumentality of those making the explorations.   We urge the consideration of the foregoing suggestion,    because  a   very  small
portion of our gold mining surface has yet
been tested, and new strikes are the necessary
stimnlent for a mining community ; .claims
are worked out, pieces of ground are abandoned as unworkable, the immediate vicinity
of the mining camp begins to look deserted.
Traders in place of giving miners the  means
of opening up new country, put on the screw,
and suddenly cut off the credit hitherto extended to   all,   Iii   this  they- are perfectly
.justified under the circumstances, as the number of paying claims are  reduced, and the
mass of their customers, if they remained in
"the same neighborhood, would be unable to
pay their accounts from the impoverished state
of the surrounding mines.    The misfortune
is that when circumstances reach this juncture the miners themselves are incapable of
moving for want of means.   It is therefore to
the interest of the merchants,'traders and the
community generally that exploration should
be constantly pushed forward. First, because
We think we have conclusively shown the
importance of aiding and encouraging exploration, particularly on the part of our merchants and traders, but in reality it is almo3t \
equally important to all. When men are
congregated in a mining camp, where only
one-third of the number can find employment,
it is easy to understand that universal poverty
can only be tbe result, as men in employment
will never see their fellow miners in want of
food. The consequence* is' thatevery oue
connected with a mining camp so circumstanced is more or less involved in the general
ruin. Can any stronger arguments be adduced in favor of the association we have proposed? It behoves everyone in Cariboo td
urge its immediate, formation, and to give all
the support to the society in his power when
formed. " ������'.���;' : '

��� AND ���
Rock   Drilling  Machine.���We notice in
tbe Mining and Scientific Press, that letters
patent have beeu applied for in San Francisco, to secure a patent right for a new hand
drilling machine.   It is designed to be operated by two ��� persons by turning a. crank, the
drill being forced against the rock by means
of a steel spring.   The object is attained by
constructing a double frame, or any, convenient mechanism by which a universal joint is
"o b taine dyscr airto all o w th edrilBo- be pointed
in any direction.   The drill stock is extended
longitudinally across a frame, and has a tappet fixed to the backjpart of it; behind which
is a spring sufficiently stiff to force the drill
forward, and give the desired blow, as soon
as the tappet js released, by a cam attached
to a shaft which crosses the frame transversely
and  is   operated   by a crank.   The drill is
firmly set in a socket, fed forward ate fast as
necessary, and turned by a. screw in the cam
shaft.   One great advantage claimed Tor this
machine is, that ifc can be worked by unskilled labor, two men doing as much: work
with it as five could do with merely the sledge
and drill.   A saving of 50 per cent is also
effected in the waste of steel usually destroyed by the sledge; but saved, in the use of
this machine, by the blow being, given by the
force of the spring.   The inertia of the drill
is overcome, and its own weight made to do
the drilling, assisted by the abov6-meritioned
spring.   The labor: is also found'easier than
by. the old way.   The'price of-the machine is
such as brings it within the reach of almost,
.every individual miner.   When - there are so
many .fed. rock tunnels being run now-a-days
here,:would it hot be a prpfitable^peeulation
for a number of miners to club together and
procure one? .���:,-..      -

love to read Burns, or the productions^of any

Why cannot they leave.Burns alone in his
glory? Not turn pirates'by twisting his
beautiful lines to suit their subject, and call
them original, too ? Perhaps parody was
meant. However, let his countrymen.look to
that. But, sir, I saw some lines in the " Sentinel" lately, in which the writer, after filching from Burns, Percy and others, actually
pulled down the " Village Blacksmith,"
smithy and all, to build his (?) " Castles in the;
Air." Shortly I will send you the real bricks

when mines ia any vicinity are exhausted the
circulation of money ceases 5 .'second, because
.in the event of discoveries heing made, an
.immediate outlay follows on the part of those
possessing funds, for outfit, and even if the
Strike should prove unimportant, the trade is
benefited to a certain extent; third, if the
strike is of importance, a new field is opened
to the trader equally with the miner, and in
ail new mining camps profits are the greatest;
fourth, when mines are exhausted, trade
iceases, and the trader runs the risk of losing
all his previous gains in the deterioration of j

Most of the  week has been spent by the different companies* :in securing the cre������k, by cribbing and  breastworks, against an overflow into .their  digging^;; this having been most effectively  accomplished, the next step about to be taken  is to: clean out those portions of the drain  which/have been choked up with sand and  tailings^>iPhe extentof the damage cannot be  correctly ascertained, but it is believed that  by putting on a strong force of workmen, the  obstructions can be removed, and all the  claims at work again within two weeks. As  one of the points of obstruction happens to  be on apportion of the old drain company's  ground, namely, at the, head of the Cameron  claim, we understand it is the intention of the  Miners''Drain Co. to notify them to have it  opened, otherwise they will apply for an  order to have it done. , Seeing that the tilling  up of the drain was not the fault of any one  individual or company,<would it not be better  for all parties concerned to" carry out the work"  collectively ? We think that under the circumstances, there could be no reasonable objection to such a course.  *?. The ^claims - aboye^ibQ^CAtto^Jjein^^all^  worked by the hydraulic or ground sluice,  will no t wasb up for som e time ; so th at  with the exception ot one claim, the Davis  co'y, which washed up for the week 290'oz.,  we have nothing to record in. the shape of  a gold yield on this creek for the past, week.  C0NKLIN3 GULCH.  Considerable prospecting is being done by  driving tunnels and sinking of shafts, on the  south 6ide of this gulch, above the Hood co.;  claim, where the old channel is supposed to  have crossed the stream, and although nothing  very satisfactory in the shape of prospects  has yet been,obtained, still indications favor  the belief that good diggings will soon be  struck. . .;  The. Ericcson co. are engaged at, present  running prospeet drifts, on high bed*rock,but  have notyet taken out any pay.���������The United  co. "washed up yesterday 108 oz., and declared  a dividend for two weeks of S300 to the share.  They will be washing this week from their  upper tunnel.���������Kome Stake co., have not got  on the lead.   They are running  across the  channel, which seems to be very wide.���������Reid  co. have four pumps worldng,and have nearly'-  got their: diggings drained,   it is expected;  they will get-to washing some lime this week  from their lower shaft.���������Hood co. are in 300  feet with their bed rock tunnel, but have not  struck the channel.���������Renfrew co. are pumping out their shaft,and will have all the water  out in a few days, when they vail commence  washing.���������Indian <^ueen or Britannia co.are  making from S10 to $14 a day to the handi���������  Justetruck-it co., located on the south side of  the gulch, about 300 feet from the stream,.  and opposite the Renfrew co., are now down  40 feet with their fifth shaft, and are hopeful  of getting down on a channel.   Two. shafts  werei previously sunk close to where they are  at present sinking, in both of which the rock  appeared to be pitching in that direction, and  small prospects were obtained.���������Dead-Sure  co. are down 20 feet with a new shaft, having  lost a.former one by striking a strata of slum  or quicksand.���������Moonlight co. have got their  wheel and pump in working order., and will  resume their sinking this week.   This company sank three shafts during the winter, and  got fair prospects.���������Night Hawk co. have got  down 36 feet with their shaft.  If any of the numerous companies which  are at present prosecuting their researches' on  the south side of the gulch, should get on pay;  a wide field would thus be opened up for  miners, and at no tiine was such a "consummation more devoutly to be wished/' than at  this moment.  .    LIGHTNING CREEK.  whole length of the creek. There are now  abbut 53.white men, and from 20 to 30 Chinamen at work in the various claims.  ' Jenny Lind'co. have had <6%' stop work in  their tunnel, in consequence' of the great  quantity of surface water.���������Kelly' Patch co.  have commenced sluicing a cut up through  their ground, in the centre of the creek.���������  Brown co. has been laid over until the last  named company get up to their lines', so as to  give them an opening to work their claim.���������  Plumbago co* have commenced cleaning up  bed rock that was worked over in '62 arid '63,  and expect good pay.���������Boyle co. are preparing to drift.���������Enterprise quartz co. are sinking  a shaft oa their ledge, in front of Mr. Hough's  store. If the rock prospects as well at a  depth of 20 or 30 feet, as it does on the surface, the company intend erecting an arrastra.  ���������The N������w-or:Never ������0. is in 120 feet ; the  rock is getting softer,which indicates the near  approach to the channel. It is expected that  two weeks more will put the tunnel through  the rock.���������East Bank" Discovery co. have run  a drift  into the bill, at a level   of about  TELEGRAPHIC.  40 feet above the creek, where they have been  taking out good pay all winter. The pay,  however, appears to be confined to.a strip  from 25 to 30 feet wide, near the front, as  they have run into the hill upwards of 60 feet,  and loose it altogether. The pay they get is  supposed to be only the outbreak froma  deeper channel further in the hill.���������Moorhead  cprarFpepftlog* ta'^work" u-preee-o^-g^s^md^  at the upper end of the claim, which was covered by a hill slide in 1863, and supposed to  be very ricb.r-Sage Miller co. are preparing  to work over old ground.���������Washburn co. are  preparing to work.���������First -Chance oo. arel  taking out fair pay .���������Calaveras co.are running a tunnel to drain thuir diggings, which  they: expect to have. finished by the first of  next month.

This claim is  owned chiefly by shareholders in the last  named company.  In many of the outlying creeks, tbe frost is  not yot out of the ground, and consequently  nothing has been done.  LOWHEE CREEK.  The copious supply of water that now runs  in the creek, has enabled almost every company to commence operations, and it is expected that in the course of a few. weeks, a  great deal of gold will be taken out. Much  interest is felt as,to the developments soon to  be made by the bed rock tunnel, now being  run by the Kow-or-Never company, into the  east bank, where-it is well known a hill channel exists.

There are some 20 Chinamen at work on  this creek, who are reported to be ^making $7  and $8 a day.  STEVENS CREEK.  Some little excitement was manifested during the latter .part of the week,in consequence  of a rumored strike on this creek, causing a  stampede to that locality. Ou Friday, we are j  informed,- 3,1<)0 feet of ground was staked off,  and as much.. more on Saturday; It appears  that a company which had1 been working: on  th^ creek all winter, sank a shaft in the bank  to the depth of; 20 feet, and washed .up two  ounces from the bottom. 5h.^.li^pspecj}in^byi  this company was done on the "strength of the  general order issued by the Gold Commissioner about a month ago, declaring ail the  rights of the Flume co. ou that creek forfeited  in consequence of the non-fulfilment of their  charter ; but it now turns out that the Flume  co. have carried out the requirements of their  charter, and of course lay claim.to the whole  of their ground, thus depriving these men of  the benefits of their discovery, and the loss of  their valuable time. No blame can be attached  to the Flume co.dn thus claiming their rights,  if they have complied svith the terms of their  charter ; but there certainly can be no excuse  for the   Commissioner   misleading a large  number of miners, and causing them to expend money at a time when they can ill afford  it.   The least that ought to be done under the  circumstances, would be to refund the money  paid  for recording  such ground as comes  within  the limits of the Flame company's  charter.  GROUSE OREEK.
