THE CARIBO0: SENTINEL  THURSDAY, JUNE 7,, 18G6.  :g^ ���������  Although/ our advices and. the report daily  brought in by returning mmera sofar from  tering .character, still .{wparO very far from believing that, rich and extensive diggings will  not ultimately be struck in that country. The  difficulties that are always to be. encountered  by the pioneers of every; new mining region  are, sufficient orthemselvesHo daunt the stoutest, heart, but when these are enhanced by the  want of proper trails or roads, and the large  tracts of show which coyer,, the whole face of  the country over which the weary gold seeker  has to pack his provisionsj'and tools, and it  ihay_.be Jhat after, manyP days of: toil that he  iiftds his scanty stock of-pro visions exhausted  before he reaches, the goal of his hopes, and  no other alternative loft buUto return io the  nearest settlement for another supply (if he  still possesses the means of prp:uring it), with  wide section of country has been overlooked,  not even a prospect hole has been sunk on  any part, of-it. We would therefore counsel  those who are now recklessly rushing off from  that country to pause and prospect; the experiment can easily be tried by those who have  provisions and tools, and the result might  prove to be both beneficial to themselves and  the whole Colony.  In connection with this subject we would  call the attention of Government to the necessity for opening- up a trail from here, by way  "of the! Horsefly country, to Big Bend^ From  all we can gather on this subject the country  presents but few obstacles for its formation,  and during the summer season excellent feed  for animals can be found throughout the  whole route; the distance we need hardly say  is not more than half of that by the present  waggon road via Cache creek, and vastly superior for pack trains or pedestrians. The  advantages of such a trail are easily understood. . Miners could travel from one place  to the other, as business or inclination called  them, at small expense ; prices of provisions  would be more equalized, as merchants in the  event of excessive supplies at Big Bend could  send their goods forward to Cariboo at a small  additional expense; our supplies of beef and  mutton in Cariboo would also be more regular, as the herds are usually driven to the vicinity of Kamloops andShus.wap,and are thence  brought here by way of the present waggon  road ; * and last, though not least,. that vast  tract of gqld bearing country lying between  these J;m^^$vi$~wettl4 'be-^&aeJHtjr etrfir-tr/  DURING THE PRESENT WEE&- we expect to receive and open a First Class stock of BRAND NEW  GOODS, comprising  RUBBER COATS,  RUBBER  BOOTS, (Goodtear>s)  COAL OIL, &c., &cy :  All of which have been most carefully selected and will  he sold at the LOWEST RATES.

We know that miners as a class do  not at allil(n^,exercise that affi^^t'of'-eare  and forethought necessary for tlie management  of. the ordinary pursuits in life, enthusiastic  as fiey naturally are in success they are very  apt to rush to the opposite extreme when they  meet with reverses. , "���������   .  We are well aware that a large proportion  of the men who have lately gone into these  mines have never put a pick in the ground  , (this they admit themselves), and many have  not even reached the diggings, having been  discouraged:by the doleful tales of those who  have been there, and the consequence Is that  the country is being cried down as a great  '���������bilk," etc.' If tho mines of California, Australia, or even Cariboo, had been judged by  this test what would have been, the result?  Would we ever have heard of those wonderful   discoveries that hare been made in these gold  fields;?   Certainly not;   Why then thus rashly  and hastily condemn the newly ^discovered  fields on the Columbia?,  We will admit that  tlie press, and their correspondents, have committed a grave error, unintentionally we believe, in attracting such a large population to  these mines afc such an early season, and leading to that disappointment -which at present  prevails'���������; for the most that can yet be said to  the disparagement of the mines is the great  iiinjculty that is met with in prospecting them.  It is the opinion of all with whom we have  conversed on the subject that the middle of  .July or beginning of August is quite soon  enough to prospect that country.. That the  Big Bend country has every indication of being highly auriferous we ha^e the testimony  of old and experienced miners to corroborate.  Many who have lately returned from there  give it as their firm belief that rich and extensive diggings exist in that portion of country  lying between the Columbia and Seymour,  from 25 to 30 miles in extent; the creeks and  gulches arc numerous and easily prospected,  and possess good fall and plenty of water s  the benches thereon, and even the.hill feops^  are covered with a heavy wash of gravel and  quartz boulders.

Surgeons in the French  army have proved by experiments in Africa,  that soldiers wearing the beard are much less  liable to diseases of the eyo, and i,t is generally conceded that it is a protection from diseases of the throat and lungs.    It is asserted  that in countries  where it is  customary to  wear the beard, the eye retains its strength,  lustre and brilliancy much longer.

Practice of mixing Chicory and  other adulteratives with Coffee, has very much damaged in public estimation, what ought to; be the most  delicious of Beverages.   So effectually havo the public  been drugged with such mixtures that the true properties have been lost sight of, and many prefer a black  and thick infusion to a drink rich in spirit and aroma.  General as is the use of Coffee," it is little known that  in condensing the vapors extracted from the berry in  roasting^ a liquor is obtained' of tho most nauseous  taste,"and of a scent the most unbearable* \ TJnder.such  circumstances it i3 evidently important that all the  gases and fluids extracted by roasting should be carried off as quickly as possible, in order to prevent their  returning again to the Coffee, which is tho case in tho  confined cylinder.    This object; is admirably'accomplished by the new and patent "Conical Coftee Roaster"  as used by FELL & CO. '; Victoria, in which tho berry  is directly exposed to the radiated heat, and the vapor  extracted carried off instantaneously. *  In addition to  the advantage to be derived by the rapid removal of  theisteam containing theobjectionable properties, the  pure aroma ������f the Coffee'is retainod> the essential oil  being preserved and not exhausted as in theCyliuder  Roaster, where 'the Cotfee is required to remain a much  longer time in consequence of the steamiug it under:  goes by tho couQned steam.   It is chemically; impossible to retain the qualities or arrest the deterioration of  Coffee when ground.  ;The boat engendered by tho process of roasting, and especially of grinding, creates an  action in the elementary parts which gradually- destroys  its fitness for drink. ~ But to retain tho essential oil  which it contains wo have it encased in tinsContaining-  from.l lb. to 28 lbs., and which can be had from any  of the'respectAblo dealers.    We can confidently recommend those wbb havo hitherto been obliged to refrain from, taking Coffee on uecount of-its ill effects,  that they may use our- CoHee,; roasted, ia, the Conical  Roaster, being recommended by all.medical men under  whose notice it has been brought, and-by nnraerous  bthar testimonials in its fayprv ��������� ; .-:; FELL :.& CO.,..

THE GHOSTS OF TOLBURN; INN. ���������  A traveller in the south of Scotland, who  was journeying to wards'Ben Lomond for his  health, stopped for a night to lodge at an inn  in the sprightly little town'of iainross, called  Tolburn Inn.  : "' '.'-.  After supper and a stroll about the place,  feclin"* wearied, he;determined:to retire early,  and requested the landlord to show him to a  room, if possible,away from the noisoof both  the street and the stables, as he was a man of  weak nerves, and did not like to.be disturbed  in his sleep. .    ���������   m. ���������  The landlord was obliging, and named an  and was soon wrapped' ina .deep sleep.  Other guests arrived at the inn through the  evening, and:tho stir, common, to public houses  ���������was kept lip to a late hour, so thai it was near  midnight before all was quiet;,but the traveller^ having.a retired room,, slept on, hearing  nothing.

The record of his baptisihih the Catholic Ghurch in  that city established this fact beyond a doubt.  He was a resident of Wisconsin- for about  century, and was the " oldest citizen" in that  State beyond, any dispute.    Whenever the  " oldest citizen "was alluded to every Wiscori-  sonian declared Joseph Crele'was the man  meant.   He was first married in New Orleans  in-1755; after having grown to be^a^ bachelor  of SO.   A few years after his marriage he settled at Prairie du Chien, while Wisconsin was  yet a province of France.   Before the revolu-  tionary^war, he was employed to carry letters  between Prairie du Chien and Green Bay.  A  few years ago he was called as a witness in  the Circuit Court' of Wisconsin, in 'a case involving the title to certain real estate at Pra-  ire du Chien, to give testimony in relation to  certain events that transpired eighty years before, and many before the  litigants   wore  dreamed of.    For some time past he. had resided at Caledonia, with a daughter by his  third wife.    This child was a little over 70  years of age a couple of years ago, but we  do-not know not whether she survives her  father or not.   He was 60 when she was born.  Up to 1864 Mr. Crelo was as hale and; hearty  as most men of 70.    He could walk several  miles without fatigue, and was frequently in  the habit of " chopping wood " for family use.  Ho went to all elections, and, from the time  he first voted for Washington, he had always  voted the' straight out Union ticket.    He had  no bad habits except that he was an inveterate smoker ; but that is -not "considered among  the small vices in the land of Grant and Sherman. .... In person he was rather above the medium height, spare in flesh, ;biit showing evidence of having been in liis prime���������d. century  or so before���������a man of sinewy strength^   ��������� Of  late years a haunting sense of loneliness overwhelmed and seemed, to sadden him.���������New-  York'Herald.'  ^ '.:���������   : BARKERVILLE,'-  PAID/UP 9$^ '  ....-��������� ;���������".

BIG BEND MINES.       _     :.  . :Although our advicesYand the reports daily  brought in byre turning' miners so far from  Big Bend are iiot ofth������iSost favorable or flat-  .  tering character, stills/are very far from be-  '���������. lievinjr that. rich iirid! extensive diggings will  not Viltimately be strucic in that country. The  diificulties that are always to be encountered  ; by the pioneers of :eyery. hew mining region  v are '-'sufficient ofthemselves to daunt the stoutest heart, but when.these arc enhanced by the  want of proper ti*ails;,or5rdads, and the large  ; tracts of snow; which ^o%r the whole face of  v the Country over whicfrjthe weary gold seeker  I; has to pack his provisions and tools, and it  may be that after; manyf^ays of toil that he  iinds his scanty stock-ofe^rovisions exhausted  l beforei he reaches^ thev^o"al of his hopes; and  no other alternative leftJbiit to return to the  j icarest.settlement foiv-another supply (if he  \ still possesses the means'pf procuring it), with  : a renewal .of, all the harclsnips and privations  he; has'alroady^uridorgone^arid wUtTth������-.same  probability of ili-success before hiin. Can we  wonder then at the great number of disap-  wide section of country has been overlooked,  not even a prospect hole has been sunk on  amy part of it. We would therefore ;connsel  those who are now recklessly rushing oft'from  that country to pause and prospect; the exr  periinent can easily be tried by those who have  provisions and tools, and the ��������� result might  prove to be both beneficial to themselves'.and  the whole Colony. X, ������������������  In connection with this, subject we would  call the attention of Government to the necessity for opening up a trail from here, by way.  of the Horsefly country, to Big Bend.    From  all we can gather oh this subject- the country  presents but few obstacles for its formation,  and during the summer season excellent feed  for animals can be: found throughout the  whole route; the distance we need hardly say  is not more than half of that by the present  waggon road via^ Cache creek, and vastly superior for pack trains or pedestrians.   The  advantages of such a trail are easily understood.    Miners could travel frcn; one place  to the other, as business or inclination called  them, at small, expense ; prices of provisions  would be more equalized, as merchants in the  event of excessive supplies at Big Bend could  send their goods forward to Cariboo at a small  additional expense; our supplies of beef and  mutton.in Cariboo would also he more regular, as the herds are usually driven to the vicinity of Kamloops and Shuswap, and are thence  brought here by way of the present waggon  road; and last, though not least, that vast  tract of gold.bearing. country lying between  these two points would be opened up so as to  admit of its being thoroughly explored.  The expense attending the construction of  such a trail would be very trifling, as the obstacles are few and a considerable portion of  the country is already in good travelling condition.- We earnestly commend the scheme to  the consideration of the proper authorities,  and. firmly believe that with so important a  TOURING THE PRESENT WEEK wo expect to re-  JLh ceive and open a First Class stock of BRAND NEW  .../- GOODS, comprising  -RUBBER.

We know that miners: as 'a'Sfazz dr. ^'^i^s?s&  not at all times exercise that amount of care  and forethought necessary for the management  of the ordinary.-.pursuits in life, enthusiastic  as they naturally are in success they are very  apt to rush to the opposite extreme when they  meet with reverses.  We are well aware that a large proportion  of i the men who have lately gone into these  mines have never put a pick in the ground  (this they admit themselves), and many have  not even reached, the diggings, having been  .. discouraged by the doleful tales of those who  t    have been there, and the consequence.is that  the-country is being cried down as a great  "Jrilk," etc.   If the mine3 of California, Australia, or even Cariboo, had been judged by  this test what would have been the result?  Would we ever have heard of those wonderful  discoveries that have been made in these gold  fields ?   Certainly not.   Why then thus rashly  and hastily condemn the newly discovered  fields on the Columbia?    We!will admit thati  the; press, and their correspondents, have com-j  mitted a grave ^error, unintentionally we believe, in attracting such a large population to  :.these mines at:suoli an early season, and lead-  ing to that disappointment which at present  /prevails; for the most that can yet be said to  the disparagement of the mines is the great  difficulty that is met with in prospecting them.  It is the. opinion of all with whom we have  conversed on the subject that the middle of  July or beginning of August is quite soon  enough io prospect that country.   That the  Big Bend country has every indication of being highly auriferous we have the testimony  of old and experienced miners -to corroborate.  "TVIarijr who have lately returned fromPtfom*  giveitas th6ir firm belief that rich and extensive diggings exist in that portion of country  lying; between the Columbia and Seymour,  from 25 to 30 niiles in extent; the creeks and  gulches are numerous and easily prospected,  and possess good fall and plenty of, water;  the benches thereon, and even the hill tops,  are covered with a heavy wash of gravel and j  quartz boulders.    But, strange to say, in the J  haste of all to push forward to ��������� the new EI!  Dorado on the other side of the Columbia, this I  sive of space demanded in the park. 'The net  space at the disposal of the British executive  is 93,000 square feet, or considerably less than  one-third of the space asked for.., Inil8oo the  net apace filled was 65,000 squaro feet.���������'European Times/ /   ,,  Wkar your Beards.���������We have frequent!^  wx'connection between the nerves  and the muscles of. the face and eyes, and that  allowing the beard to remain unshaven  strengthens the eye.

BIG BEND MINES.  ���������v'Although pur advices and;the reports da-ily  brought in by returning miners so', far from  ���������tering character, still we are Verv far From believing that rich arid extensive "diggings will  not ultimately be struck in thiat country. The  .Xr<iifliculties that are always to be encountered  ���������   by the jHoncers of every.;hew. mining region  y ure sufficient of themselves to daunt the stout-  :   est .heart,: but when these areeiihanced'by the  want ot proper trails or roads,-and the.large  tractsi of| snowwhich coyer ;ih0 whole face of  the country over wiich the weary gold seeker  has torpaek his provisions and- tools, and it  nitty 'be that after many -days of: toil that he  finds his scantystock,o'f ;proyi8ions exhausted  1 j efore h e reaches the go al of {bis hopes,; and  }\ no other alternative left'> but r^o;return to] the  ^jie^rest-settlement (if he  still possesses the means of-procuring it), with  a renewalW;ali tfie hardships'ai$ privations,  ��������� lie has alroady uhdergbnei and wit the -same  wide section of country has been overlooked,  not even a prospect hole has been sunk on  any part of it. We would therefore counsel  those who are now recklessly rushirig off from  that country to pause and prospect; the experiment can easily be tried by those who have  provisions and tools, and the result might  prove to "be both beneficial to themselves and  the whole Colony.  ... In connection with this subject wo would  call the attention of Government to the necessity for opening up a trail from here, by way  of the Horsefly country, to Big Bend. .From  all we can gather on this subject the country  presents but few obstacles for its formation,  and during the summer season excellent feed  for animals can be found throughout-the  whole route; the distance we heed hardly say  is not more' than half of that by the present  waggon road via Cache creek, and vastly sur  peripr for pack trains or pedestrians. The  advantages of such a.trail are easily understood. Miners������������������ could travel from one place  to the other, as business or inclination called  them, .at sinai 1 expense ; prices of provisions  would be more equalized, as merchants in the  event of excessive supplies at Big Bend could  send their goods forward to Cariboo at a small  additional expense; our supplies of beef and  mutton in Cariboot,would also be more regular, as the herds are usually driven to the vicinity of Kami oops and Shuswap, and are thence:  brought here by way of the present waggon  road ; and last, though not least, that vast  tract of gold bearing country lying between  these two points would bo opened up so as tp_  l^mtt��������� oFits frein^  .The expense attending the .construction of  such a trail would be very trifling, as the obstacles are few and a considerable portion of  the country is already in good travelling condition. We-earnestly commend the scheme to  the consideration; of the proper authorities,  and firmly believe that with so important a  link between these mining districts a great  step in the right direction wfill be achieved.  DURING THE PRESENT "WEEK   we expect to re-  ' ceive and open a First-Class stock -of BRAND NEW  GOODS, comprising  RUBBER COATS,  RUBBER   BOOTS, (Goodyear's)  COAL OIL, &c, &c,  All of which have been most carefully selected and will  be sold at tho LOWEST RATES.

' '",  AVe are well aware that a .large proportion  of the men who have lately gone into these  mines have never put a pick in the ground  (this they admit themselves), and many have  not even reached the diggings, having been  discouraged by the doleful tales of /those who  have.been there, and the consequence is that  the country is being cried down as a great  "bilk," etc.   If the mines of California, Australia, or even Cariboo, had been judged by  this test what would have been the. result?

Surgeons in the French  army have proved by experiments in Africa,  that soldiers wearing the beard are much less,  liable to diseases of the eye, and it is generally conceded that it is a protection from diseases of the throat and lungs.    It is asserted  that in countries where it is customary to  wear the beard, the eye retains its strength,  lustre and brilliancy much longer.   It may bo  argued that females do not suffer more than  males from diseases of the eyo, etc., but it  must be admitted that they are less exposed  to the elements.

That the  Big Bend country has every indication of he-  lag highly auriferous we have the testimony  of old and experienced miners to corroborate.  Many who have lately; returned from there  give it as their firm belief that rich and extensive diggings exist in that portion of country  lying between the Columbia and Seymour,  from 25 to 30 miles in extent; the creejes and  gulches are numerous and easily prospected j  and possess good fall and plenty of water;,  the benches thereon, and even the hill tops, I  are covered with a heavy wash of gravel and j  quartz boulders.

To The Editors ot1 the CiRiuooiTE,1  Most Potent, Grave and Reverend  Gentlemen:���������The general public (with the  self-conceited ignorance for which they are  distinguished) probably consider the duties  and responsibilities of a "Lbkul Itun^s,/ correspondent on Williams Creek at the present time  as a sinecure: but I assure you, gentlemen,  that they are vastly mistaken. Pshaw 1 says  one, "in these dull, piping times of peace, what  can the fellow have to trouble- him, let him  write what he pleases." What he pleases! but  there's the rub, there's where lie the head and  front of all the difficulties which beset, a conscientious individual like, your. humble' servant. . It is no doubt very agreeable in these  hard times to finger every Saturday the munificent salary which is so liberally and promptly  paid to all attaches of the ������Car!booite,' and it  is also a consolation to know that the pestige  of belonging to the. staff of your widely circulated and highly esteemed journal act as a  talisman in ev^^ousc'of entertainment, the  ^oprietors<g^7^iare all anxious, to conciliate the goo^fraces of your correspondent  by asking him in the most polite manner to  imbibe freely every time that he honors their  domiciles by'favoring them with the light of his  countenance, but the old proverb says, "Too  much pudding will choke a dog," and in like  manner too much whiskey is apt to upset the  clear judgment of even your usually sober  and veracious correspondent, and by obfuscating his brain render him rather oblivious  as to exact particulars of some of the thrilling  incidents, and remarkable^ occurrences which  have come before his notice during his daily  peregrinations up aud down the magnificent  streets of the far-famed cities of Richfield,  Barkerville and Cameronton, thronged as they  are each day with gorgeous vehicles drawn  by . richly caparisoned steeds, the air ringing  with the merry sleigh bells' music, the stately  warehouses and marts of commerce resounding with the busy hum of traffic, and the  shady promenades through which every breeze  wafts a thousand delicious perfumes," glittering like minbows with the many hued garments of lovely damseb, whose sparkling eyes  and silvery voices captivate the hearts of  every passer by, whether their language flows  in sturdy Saxon tones, reminding you of the  waving corn-fields, the mossy lanes and the  white cliffs of old England; in the mellow  brogue of Erin, bringing her green pastures  and sparkling trout streams again before your  fancy; iu the harsher dialect of Caledonia,  stern and wild, recalling the memory of the  happy days you have passed among the pur- j  pic heather; in the lively prattle of La belle  Prance, awaking remmiscences of the gay  boulevards of Paris ; in the dulcet strains of  old Castile, the land of romance and chivalry,  where tho purple grape now hangs in clusters,  clinging in fond embrace to the ruined columns and frescoed pilasters of palaces and  mosques, solo remnants of mediaeval Saracenic  splendor j or in the still more melodious and  euphonious accents of the classical Chinook,  suggestive of salmon and w*apitoes.  Again imagine your correspondents anguish  when retiring to his virtuous couch at dewy  eve (or as Burns has more definitely expressed  the period the "wee short hour ayoht the twaP')  he reflects that the earth has revolved once  more upon its axis without securing a valuable item of information for the 'Caribooite,5  like the Roman Emperor, ho exclaims, "Alas!  I have lost a day;" no cases of "battle, murder  or sudden death," no suicides, no violent assaults, no fires, no earthquakes, no robberies,  no dreadful accidents, no rich strikes> : no  drunks and disorderlies, no Gold Commissioner's decisions, not even a respectable dog  fight for 24 hours I "Ye Gods can such things  be and Cariboo endure."  Now were I-but endowed with the romahtie  imagination of Baron Munchausen, Lemuel  Gulliver, the /Colonist's' Cariboo correspondent,-or^auy-such -notable -authority, I might  fill your columns with marvellous descriptions  of the enormous mineral riches of Cariboo,'.  which are yet to be discovered, I might paint  in glowing terras the majestic Alpine scenery  of our mountains and melt in rapture as I describe, the sweet enchanting Italian climate of  the flowery valleys nestling at thou* feet/but"  unfortunately my education was neglected iu  my juvenile days and lam but ah indifferent  toxopholite, having never succeeded in acquiring the art of drawing the. long bow to  perfection,'. however if you will only be kind  enough to grant me a sufficient travelling  allowance to go in the.style beiitting your  correspondent to the .Big Bend, or if the state  ofyour exchequer Avili not justify you in doing so, give a polite hint to your subscribers  to raise a well filled purse for my benefit, I  will endeavour faithfully to get on as Big a  Bender as the funds will permit, and let you  have the benefit of my experience sometimo  between now and:Christmas.

By this means the magnetic currents  which prevade the surface of the globe keep  up a regular and normal kind of nutrition of  the mass of iron contained in the economy,  and hence arises an increase of the vital principle, which regulates all the organic phenomena, having a direct action on the preservation of life. ���������'>'���������'  Extravagance of Fren*cu Lawes,���������A Paris  coiTespondent writes:���������The extravagance and  eccentricities of ladies of high life in. matters  of dress are realJy beyond all description.

Tho heat engendered by tho process of roasting, and especially of grinding, creates an  action in the elementary parts which gradually destroys  its fitness for drink;    But to retain the' essential oil  which it contains wo have it encasodin tin.scontaining-  from 1 lb. to 28 lbs., and which can be had from any.  of. the respectable dealers."   We can confidently recommend those who have hitherto* been bbligod to refrain from taking Cofleo on .account of its ill effects,  that they may use pur Coffee, roasted-in tho Conical  Roaster, being recommended by all medical men under  whoso notice.it has been brought, and by numerous  othtr testimonials in its favor. .  ������������������ vFELL,&vCO.,���������'������������������'  Coffee Merchants, Yates st,, Victoria.
