The breach of these in-  K ?|������tructions to which it is our duty here fo refer  '/-V^pfis that of the Governor having'employed Mr.  ^^f'Hoberly, member for -Cariboo .-West, as a- jnib-  ^HJjgiic official for many^months past, whilst that  Jihcorriiptable patriot; has held his seat in the;  ^Council, to the disgrace of the Grovernment as  ^weU as oft the man who dares $0 ;��������� usurp the title  ||p6f an independent member,whilst he is a tightly  ^boiind official. ��������������������������� If such a: departure from the  ;ftlaw and constitution had taken place iii:Eng-  ���������iiand, or  any other part of the Empire!) ut  ^fflBrHish Columbia, the Minister who assumed  , fthe power of abrogating the plain letter of  Ms Sovereign's instructions would have been  ��������� instantlycalled to account for such a' viola-?  ;v .stioii of his strict duty.   Mr. Moberly may have  [|$i������fititic<i"himself "'.to &-Government appoint-;  l^lfet by liis servile conduct in the Council to  f J^|������S"patrbh, but his connection with Cariboo  ^j^pfest should-have been legally severed the;  ||lpi6meiit he accepted officer ��������� We call-iipbn the  M0jrbvernor, iu the name ofthe electors of West  j||pCariboo, to declare the seat immediately va-  tllljcant,-so as iu some measure to atone for the  Ifl^isgraceful; departure from the Queen's ia-  instructions to which we have referred.  \  AGRICULTURAL^ PROGRESS.  ��������� 4 i)It is a matter of tbe highest,. importance to  wSfffJfe progress; and development of .this country  1^/^^t silfficierXt^  ���������?������'j$G& within its boundaries to supply its own  < ' large consumption.' The ain't of land this year  i> 'X-,iiMer cultivation is unpi*ecedentedly large  ! :.^|||Jd from the fact of the farmers having had  ^;?;������:������(S������5p6rttl years experience in the country, we  X,^$$7������ 110 doubt the yield this seasbn,will. ap-  ^;P_Jr6ximate'"to the demand for next year's cou-  :;^||^sumption.   From Liilooet to Soda Creek there  , ia not a single ranch which possesses an' acre  Xffhf good Land/that the farmer has not been engaged in its cultivation.   In the neighborhood  If   '_ of Lillooet alone upwards of 1200 acres of  1 \     wheat will be 'grown, and on -the ranches at  X;    Williams Lake a great deal of land has been  X    l|iid down with the same crop.'   On the wag-  f;P-~ ,_gon road ranches sufficient oats and barley  "^|^li be produced to make feed for horses both  :'wfiundant and cheap.'   For instance, at one  ''?#& u������t far from Soda Creek, that of the  ^.^pular Frank Way's, there are more than  MO acres under oats and barley, the land be-  in^all irrigated and highly cultivated.    It is  .contemplated in tho fall we believe to ereet a  ;L /flour mill at Williams Lake, containing all the  .-;'���������'���������;Jiipat modern improvements, and at an ex-  . Jpense exceeding $10,000.    Such a useful en-  f f ierprise deserves, encouragemeut and should  ; j:=;i; y^command success.   Although flour in Cariboo  :? (gJ8 at present lower than it has ever been be-  yyiore, skeuld the crop of wheat now in the  j/vgraund turn oilt well, next .year the staple of  ^he mining camp will be still further reduced  '���������'.;:;-;:Jin price.   It is only by cheapening the necessaries of the miner that he will .be able to  ; prospect.this country thoroughly, and we look  :S^brward to the success of the present season _  ��������� crop as of the most  vital importance  to  ';;;';$||he- progress and development of the country's  Xf- jresburces hereafter.    By reducing provisions  to the lowest ebb a, large population of min-.  ; %;;$>b will be attracted and induced to come here  '^faM prospect    Let us hope that the time is  ���������#_t far distant when flour instead of being 30  ���������cents on Williams Creek will not exceed 10  , ffbents.  ..0VQUESKEL.

Mitchell in his  endeavor to open up. a shorter route -to Williams Creefe   Our reporter lately passed 6ver  it on his way up country, and states that from  Blairfs to. the South Fork Lake the_rail runs  through the beautiful valley ofthe Horse Ely,  Tlie valley is roUihg land, thickly wooded, and  is gen orally urilit; f or agricultural purposes,  but a few fertile spots here and there might be  turned  into   profitable  cultivation.  /From  Blair's to the South Fork Lake, a distance of  52 miies, small 4akes are to be met with on the  skir ts of the trail j 0 ur. rep or ter ha ving cou n t-  ed no less than 17.    There is'only oiie house  of accommodation on the way, and pedes-  trains must sleep one night in the open air. on  their journey^    At tho" Sdulii. Forks Lake*  which is 12 miles broad, there is a ferry-])bat  plying, but the arrangements connected with  her being a ny th ing h u t s a Ms fac to ry great de-  tentio n takes. pi ace there.   No doub tihese in-  conveniences   will  be  hereafter  remedied.  From the lake there is a mountain of easy  grade to be crossed of four- iniles, when thc  trail strikes Capt. Mitchell's bridge across the  North Fork of Qucsncl.   From the bridge the  traveler takes the old and well beaten track  of Snow Shoe and Antler mountains; :which'  are so steep as to effectually prevent anything  like-a waggon road being made that way. The  distance from ^Mitchell's bridge.to Williams.  Creek is computed at about 42 miles, making  the total distance from Blair's, including the  lake, 120 miles.    There is no question this  route is much shorter than by the waggon  road, but the steep hills, deep snow lying on  the high mountains in the early part ofthe  season, and the want of accommodation en  route for travelers, will render it anything but  a successful rival to the grand  trunk line.

' ���������  THE CARIBOO SEOTINEE  BARKERVILLE, SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 'G5  J^~'A SUPPLEMENT containing eight  columns is issued with this number of the  "Sentinel."  THE GOLD EXPORT TAX.  "The Government is reported to have made  some concession to the mining community in  regard to this unjust tax. It is stated (why  iR.it not published 1) that all -gold.assayed at  the Bank of British Columbia will only be  ^charged one shilling and six pence per ounce.  So far this is a step in.the right direction, but  it must not be allowed lo stop here, for the  injustice and inequality of the impost on the  miner is still as glaring as it was before. The  concession However should stimulate all who  are interested iu the welfare of the country  to continue the agitation upon the question  until the'law as it now stands at present has  bSen set aside altogether. A simple reduction of six pence an ounce does not in any  way lessen the injustice of a measure which  is. only designed to take money out of the  pockets of a section of the community whilst  all others are exempt. Neither does it affect  tlie principle that shareholders;of claims must,  actually;^ay duty ;'.oh gbld^wMchJias; to be  laid out for labor and materials for the due  working of the claims. -We maygust adduce  an-iUustration- 6f-what^  many claimson the creek faking out say from  fifteen to ^ day;  each of  these has from twenty men upwards employed, all of: whom have to get their wages  in full, for which purpose the gold is exchanged at. the Bank, whereof jepurse; the  duty is deducted. Now as may be easily imagined it often happens that the shareholders  ha ve not a cent left when all the expenses are  'discharged, and yet they; have been mulcted  of the duty, when in fact; as jnauy well know  here, the shareholders are paying taxes when  they have ho income of their own. : ft fre-  'quchtly happens besides that the Government  takes the duty whilst the legitimate demands  of the creditors of a claim remain undischarged! Is it therefore right or commendable to  impose a duty upon the enterprising prospector who takes all the responsibility of employing labor? and the more men he gives  work to the more oppressively is he taxed ?  Is this the way to stimulate bold and enter-  p ris ing men to op en up the co untry ?   Very  4*������t* *W\rri \i-  %ir\(! Wat   SArtSfin'S   lerrifilatiOTi   hns  In JanuaryJ last the Legislative Council  granteri $6000 towards paying off the liabilities of the hospital here, as well as for meeting  its expenses for the current year. Notwith-  standing that the^necessities of theinstitution  have been yery urgent, and the demands of  the: store keepers for'the amounts due them J  for supplies exceedingly pressing, yet not one  cent has passed out of the Treasury towards  assisting the institution to keep open its doors.  In our. last issue we published a, letter from  one or* the creditors here, whose humanity  would no t allow him to deny the institution  actual necessaries, arid he complains? with  reason,; and justice on his side, of being un-  necessariiy kept out of his money since January; last. It is really most unreaspnable to  act so tp men who have to meet their engagements when they become due, I and more  especially when no excuse can be J offered $$&  deferririg ���������p^ymen  made six months since.

EASTERN NEWS.  far from it; and last season's legislation has  just effectually prevented any great amount  "of prospecting being done this season, because it has driven the men out of the country.   We are persuaded that had the Govern-  :_aent pursued* a different course towards the  _uiners last winter, Cariboo would have had a  large population this summer, and the people  more actively employed in prospecting the  outlying creeks than had ever been known  before.    With the cheap prices now prevailing thousands could have gone out prospect-  iug who never had a chance formerly.   In  this vast district of country, with its innumerable creeks and gulches, nearly every one of  which is known to be auriferous, hundreds co'd  have been busily employed, earning wages at  least, the whole season though.    To the unjust legislation and unequal taxation carried  out may be attributed the partial depopulation of this region.   There is no way to work  out a cure but for the Government to retrace  its steps and to pursue a course of fairness,  iionesfcy, and justice to the bone and sinew of  tbe country���������the mining class.

The wire  after that date was not in working order.  The following is a summary of news received by Barnards Express and collated from the  'British Columbian /  An order has been issued from the War  Department at Washington relative to the  mustering or discharging volunteers.  The New York Tribune says the grand jury  of the District of Columbia found bills of indictment against Jefferson Davis and John C*  Breckinridge (or high treason.  All the cavalry in the Western Department  are to be mustered.immediately at Cario, for  active Texan service.  Fred. Seward had an unexpected hemorrage  which excited renewed anxiety in his case.  A.special dispatch to the 'Tribune' from  Washington says: The Attorney General has  made a most important decision; he affirms  that the President's proclamation was a means  only to secure a specific purpose, which was  suppression of rebellion. The rebellion being ended the amnesty does not restore citizenship, properly or equal rights. The President has no power to pardon except for what  is past. Executive clemency cannot stretch  to the future; therefore decrees of confiscation must stand. The decision will be given  to the public in a few days.  The 'Tribune's' special from Washington  says in the election for House of Delegates  the Disunionists swept Virginia, so far as  known.  Havana advices of the 20th say: The ram  Stonewall has been delivered to the Spanish  Government by her commander.  Fortress Monroe, May 28-:-Jeff Davis and C.  E. Clay are in close confinement here.  Gen Lee will be indicted by grand jury in  Richmond, in a few days, for treason.  St. Marks and Tallahassee, Florida, were  surrendered to theU.

The freshet which impeded operations on  this creek to some extent at the date of our  last issue has entirely subsided; and the slight  damage which it occasioned;has been repaired.   In former years a flood in- the creek at  /this.,.season of the year was greatly to be  "dreadedt Sut^ now the ; shafts of the majority  of the claims are so securely defendeddw the  tailings being embanked around them that in  future*apprehensions of loss from the 6yer-  flbwings of the creek are at an end. / In the  vicinity of Richfield ground sluicing has been  carried on during the week most energetically, and in one or two instances where companies "washed up" with encouraging success.   From: the canon below Richfield down  to Barker ville> botli on the hill and in the  creek, a great deal of work has been done.  Mr. Hard Curry has had to commence a new  shaft, which was rendered neccssary to avoid  a heavy cutting through rihi rock in the one  just completed.     The Summit^company, on  hill (in the old Dixie company's ground) he-  side J3ard. Curry's claim, have been actively  prosecuting their ardjioiis undertaking; tlieir  shaft is at present 80 feet deep and they have  commenced tp drift f The Eagle company, opposite Barkerville, to ok an encouraging pro s-  pect of $1 'to the pan put of their shaft-a few  days,since, and they will commence washing  in a day or two.   The Barker company's shaft  has been again filled up, this time from leakage, -aXhe-��������� J3ald-^Head vComimriy,ha^ve-,.be^_������,  driving hard lately, but with only indifferent  results.    Ori the west side ofthe creek, beginning at Barkeryiile, we have the prospecting company, called the Hibernia, which has  sunk a shaft to tlie bed rock,'but; the water  becoming very troublesome they are necessitated to get up machinery before they can  drift.    The Hit or Miss company have been  impeded in their progress also by water. The  new Australian company are"also in the same  predicament.   The \Velch company have got  down to bed rock in their new shaft, at 30  feet, but have not found a prospect; they are  preparing to drift.   The Stuart company have  struck bed rock without finding gold; the bed;  rock pitches towards theM,creek and they are  commencing to o^Tih^&^^eGtiion.    The  Morning Star company (next to the Stuart  conapany) got down early in the week and  found a prospect of from $3 to $5 to the pan  in tkc bottom, of the shaft;   the bed rock  pitches towards the hill, and as soon as the  company have erected their flume they will  commence to drift; perseverance in this case  is likely soon to be rcwarded^with success;  Captain Ferry, * the foreman, has been three  years prospecting the same ground without  having derived much benefit heretofore from  his labors; we hope mVreward will be commensurate with his past sacrifices and perseverance.  A company, headed by "Big Larry,"  took up a claim oh the hill below the Morn-  ping Star, and in the astonishingly short time  of 4 hours got down to bed rock; the clajm  was commenced, prospected, and abandoned  all in one day, a fact which has no parallel on  Williams Creek I    On the east side of the  creek, the Aurora, Davis, Wake up Jakei Lillooet, and Cariboo companies are busily at  work; the fi rs t named only taking out large  pay.,    The Tinker and Cameron companies  have been averaging, ^we understand, about  IO ozs. per day during the week.    The, Raby  company, which, has 28 men at work under  Mr. Charles Malloy, the foreman, 'has had  great success during the week; in one^day as  mucli as 46 ozs. wore washed up from one  shaft, and the average for the week will he  40 ozs. per day.   The Dead Broke and Forest  Rose companies have been yielding about the  same as lately reported in our columns.   The  following companies below Cameronton are  taking out rather more than wages, viz: Prince  of Wales, Rankin, and Elliott.    The Oram  company had their shaft clear of water when  the bed rock drain burst and filled it up  again.   The Bruce and Adams companies are  commencing operations.     On the whole the  present week is a most encouraging one for  claim owners, as most of those on the creek  are now taking out gold, with good prospects  of the yield increasing ere another week has  passed over.     There are also many claims  which a very few days more, work will test  their value.  CONKLIN GULCX  E   YIEL  This famous gulch promises to surpass its  yield of the precious metal in former seasons  during the one now opened. The Saw Mill  company, whose good luck we last week had  the plea sure of recording, have rease n again  to-rejoice oyer /tlie;"large amount^ which their  claim has returned^since Sunday last.

The fericcson company, next above the Saw  Mill company, have had the first streak of  good luck for the season. They have been  drifting in their new shaft, and iri two washings up for.the week's work they have had as  a result a little oyer. 900 ozs., or $13,950.

Sir,-���������An ^ article appeared in your  last  htfue   reflecting in .very  severe   terms  on  tlio qualifications of Mr. James Oar and. the  gft������tlemon- cp^nposiiig the party ; under his  charge; will y6u allbwine stiflflcient space in  roar| col������mn������vto state--thatj^vei^vrespectable  p o r ti on 6f th e co mmtirii ty do no .indorse th e  flentiments contained in that article, on the  contrary-���������whatever political differences may  exist���������-the- prevailing.j if not;,the universal,  opinion is that on this occasionUhe Government have placed "the right man in the right  place/*: -Mr; Orr's lohgTesidcnce' in%is colon y, his active life while in it, his cxperi en ce  as a miner, his gentlemanly demeanor, and  the spirit to lead, which is so inspiring to those  who are to follow, eminently quality him for  tl i e p osition. whi cli he occupies.\   It may be  that there are many, men in Cariboo who  would bo his superior in' the use of the pick  a ud shovel, but it is not to every person who  can sink a shaft or run a drift that the charge  of an exploring party coiild be given.   But  should Mr. Orr be deficient in the more prac-  t ical department of mining,y the* deficiency is  fu 11 y niade up'by the men who compose his  com p any ; all of th em ihih ers, and most of  them   accustomed   to driving  through   the  densest  forests  and   braying  the   swiftest  streams, skilled in the use of the axe and the  pick and shovel, accustomed to hardships of  ti v cry ki nd, and wel 1 - fitted i n every parti cular  lor the work before them.   You are mistaken  when you slate  uthat the great stimulus for  exertion  is wanting."7    In this party each  m emb er will be ew ti tied to a discovery clai m,  which will be held for thein nutil their term  expires.   The fact of their receiving $75 per  month is scarcely sufficient inducement to  " ho nes t in in e rs'J to negl ec t thei r cl u ty, whi) e  the prospect of .finding a good claim will render thein anxious to strain every nerve to  further the success of the project.    If ns a  defender of the public interests j-ou find it  y our duty to attack the G overnmeiit of the  colony, it' would certainly be of better service to root up some real evil Uian making a  groundless charge upon a popular, and it is  earnestly to be hoped what will ultimately  turn out to be a prosperous undertaking.
