The era of anonymons journalism came in when tbe old men died.   Nobody now cares whether the HerahFs expressions of opinion are the expressions of Mr  Pott or those of Mr Ketteil *; nor whether the  Evening Post's editorial coin mils are written  hy Mr Bryant orhy ono of his numerous assistants.   Tbe first question of the newspaper  reader to-day is : What is the news ? and that  journahwhich always gives him the freshest  and fullest Intelligence of the events of the  world will continue to be his favorite.   The  editorial writers have lost their, identity^  perhaps.some of the old-fashioned folk who  ���������cherish the memories of the " good old days"  will say that It is because men have got beyond the control of party leaders.   The new  order of things is probably better for us than  the old; at any rate, our people think it is,  ^nd if tlmy are satisfied, the conductors of our  public journals will he content with the profit  acruing from that state of satisfaction.   The  interlacing lines of the telegraph on land and  sea, the tmdg'me: of vast distances by steam,,  the expansion of civilized society, the thousand agencies whicfe bring the ends of the|  earth into contact, give us something better  to dwell ������tpon than the petty. squabbles* the  public horse-^liipDi^s, the duels, the portjr  Something about Tketh.���������Why, asks Cbam-  6ersr journal, do some people's teeth come  out more readily than others?   The reasons  for .ihisj aref> probably many: " About the  middle of last century Peter Kalm. a Swede,  visited ATnerica, and wrote sensibly about  what he saw.   He observed frequent loss, of  teeth amoTijr settlers from Europe, eape-cially  womeiv. After diseasing and rejecting many  modes of explanation, heattribnted it to hot  tea a-nd othpr hot beverages, and came to a  general conclusion that ���������' hot feeders lose therr  ".teeth more rapidly than cold feeders,^   Mr  Catlin. who some years ago had an interesting  exhibition of Indian scenery, dresses, &c.  noticed that North American Indians have  better teeth than the whites.   He accounts  for the differende'in'this strange way���������that  the red*\\nx# the mouth shut, whereas the  whites keep it open.; The teeth, he says, re  quire moisture to keep the surface in good  working order ] when tbe mouth is open, the  mucous membrane haft a tendency to dry up  the tp.eth loRe their needed supply'of moisture.  and thence comes' discoloration, tooth cache,  tic,douloureux,; decay^; lo^ehessy]hnd even-  ma I joss o f tee th. Mr Cat ll n sc ol d s th e hn m an  race generally for being less sensible-than the  brn tes in this respect, and tbe, wbire race  epp'eci al 1 y 1 h com p arison wi th the red.

Many let-  tars are lost from this cause every /year, and  inany more would be lost but for the marvel-  ovra ingenuity of the trained post office clerks  to whom the deciphering of such perplexing  addresses is committed. Iti the general post  office in London, no less than twenty clerks.  it is said, are employed in this duty. As a  specimen of their acuteness, we are told of a  letter which lately arrived at the office, addressed to a man at **3 pigs, 3 sx." This  loolis like a riddle ftfr the puzzle column of a  weekly paper. A Budden inspiration came  into the mind tf the deciphering clerk. He  saw that the figure 3 was a letter E turned the  wrong way V and. so the epistle was duly forwarded to its destination at ���������< tipping, Esiex."

The above; provisions are evidently the chief object of the  present Act; and though no doubt for the  benefit of capitalists, and for the purpose of  encouraging them > to invest their trioney in  the Province, are equally open to the Free  Miner, and he will 1iave the choice in the  future of either abiding by the old system or  availing himself of the new, -fis he ������may consider to his advantage.   There Is no reservation of any particular mining ground from the  operation of the new Act, so that all mining  ground will be equally open after the coming  into operation of tbe Act���������which does not  take place until the/Slst day of July next���������  to location and grant under its provisions.  The-extent of ground which can be located  may seem large, but it Is difficult to see how  the main object of the Act���������namely, the in.  troductionaf capital in tbe working of the  mines���������could have been carried out without  such an advantage being given, and there is  no need to fear that its extent will lead to  any monopoly of the mining land* of the  Province, as the Act itself has provided  against any such an evil.���������-first, by giving an  equal power to the individual miner to locate;  secondly, by providing, by section 3, "That  "no record of a location shall be made of  " land which shall be considered to bo imme-  ** diately available for Free Miners as holders  '* vi iudividual claims;" thirdly, by provid  ing that the record shall not prejudice or take  away any rights vested in any Free Miner ;  fourth!y, by providing by section 7, that if at  the expiration of two years tbe party in^w^ose  favor tne^iocatiori has been recorded is, not  able to establisfi that be baa e^pen^e4 tf e rS^  qiiimtoanibunt'per acre, the land>so recorded  becomes open to pro-em ption or 1 oca tion as  waste land of the Crown ; and lastly, by section 11; enacting tb at Grants sball be subject  toi all j rights lawfully vested in^any; person at  "tfie timeof Lssu In gy an d th at. wh en any lands  contained in any recprd of location are lawfully held by any person otber than the locator, no such grant shall be,made. . y.:'. !:*1  These pro visions seem ampl^i to; protect tbp?  miner in every way, but an additional clause  inserted on the motion of the senior member  for this district has made the protection to*tbe  r.,yy >y-���������>���������*������������������������������������ y    r t %���������"���������;- .*������������������   v   ������. i ,-..* ���������������.������������.���������*. =  miner against monopoly of the raining lands  stronger, in that.it makes it competent for tlie  Goverpor in Council, on application of two-  thirds of the register ed voters, to wi thd raw  from^he onerationjof the Act any rii strict,: so  that -'we jieed -riot be greatly In fear of this  &wfis\ vrord ^ Mpnopplyl^yyf"y' ���������y ' ,  4 Thp- fees; to be charged under the new Act  arel ight-^$5; for \ lbcatipn^n d=an! ad ditional  sura ofy $4 upon,receiving the;ground..

If my.  memory aerves me correctly, about the time  your letter appeared in the Alta a poor  Welch committed suicide in Oakland. A  San Francisco journal, commenting on this  said : u It was horrible to think of the depth  of despair in which a poor wretched creature  was plunged ere he would consent to die in  Oakland, but it was only charitable to sup-  pose that in this case he was insane, or ik1  would not be found dead with that copy of  the Alta in bis hand."

Writing to the  Alta at all was truly a gentlemanly action.  You. a sojourner in a strange land, made use  of a foreign newspaper hi which to vent your  spleen on British law and the British peopfy.  It was an act worthy of an eX-Democralio  member, of the California Legislature, A  Democrat, any way, is a betftft beneath the  notice of his Redeemer; but a New York  I>eHi0crat (it waa' there, I belief ycu re-  : ;9?hp ffftVy mining1 news oflnterest, this Week  come;S; from taightn ing, ��������� there h aying^b een r; no  p Pin rn it n i catid'n wi th the o tli er p it tside. cree'lcfe  fiw'some A^yfl in ;ebuse^ueri:be of .She Ike  stoftop weather.'

The argument used Is, ���������* let the companies  ���������and capitalists have those lands to worlc and]  yyield to tbe wealth of the country."   He had  y just received a telegram from William Greek  y Strongly opposing the passage of any measure  ; to alter the laws as . they stand  at  present.  ,:He should act on his own judgment; in fact.  ; lie thought the "bill Wonldjact favorably in the  ; Interests of his constituency, but they bad  X pot had an opportunity of studying its pro-  y visions.     ���������  y voTtie bill was committed, Mr Hughes in the4  yichair.-'- '} ���������      "      '   \       ''   '"���������      "4 "'  ;;��������� y^Mr Smith moved that Sections 108 and 117  .2i>iUtie 1Sold Mining ^Ordinance be inserted  yitfterSection 105 of the same Ordinance.  ;>^Tbtseeenredthe'mirier in Tils water rights.  5;gHpn.: Mr Walkem said Section 108 had  : Iprpveda great source of litigation. ��������� ..  ^:'%JIr;..Todd moved that- $25 be Inserted  yfbr^'125:   '���������  X. ;Mr Smithe opposed the repeal of Section j  yivtfi -:"yy"-'v";'- ��������� yy iiy \  ^feMrHumplireys said the Government should  yppt'lbok to the mines as a source of revenue,  2$tieobject to be'held in view is to facilitate  iimriirig ahd:protect that kind of property.���������  ;M%^act'that oiit of 25:000 to 30.000 miner*  ;; prily;a few hundred remain, is sufficient proof  ythat/there' must fee something radically wroDg  : In the >laws.  y-Mr-Booth asked If all fh������ taxes were taken  off where would%e the revenue?  ^y^/Hon.

He felt sure that the proposed  alteration of the Mining Laws would draw a  mining population from California.   The system of taxation at present was vexatious  without producing any revenue.  The amendment was carried.  Mr Todd moved that after acquires in rule  (4) the words purchase or pre-emption be inserted.   He showed'that it was necessary to  protect those who desired to erect machinery,  ic, for prospecting.   After expending a cei-  tain amount, of course they, obtain a Crown  grant.  Mr Robertson showed that this bill does not  repeal the former Act, but merely amends it,  and offers them the land in fee simple.  Mr Smitbe would like to see a similar principle adopted for pre-empting and purchasing  mineral lands as was adopted for farming  lands, say $1 per acre, He interpreted the  object of this bill was to give the; miners the  land in fee simple without purchasing; that  is, if they find the land worthless after having  expended a large sum of money, the purchase  money is waived.  The words in u fee simple" were inserted  iu lieu of '* by purchase." '  It was moved, in sub-section 1 of section 2,  to introduce the words " as near as possible  square."  It was moved by MrTodd, ia sub-section  4, to insert4' 640 acres,"  2 Mr Walkem 'spoke;; against ^e;nwypon.���������  Stout grclbh, which bad been abandp������eJl for  aix^arSjtarpbdput,; ationt lye years ago,  some of.the "richest mining ground In Ottribpo,  Had this land been locked up iiit!heway  proposed by this: Bill; He had never bought  pf more tha^frprii 10 to 15 acres.2.,.  :!^r Todd paid; this would be. arich:^ovintry  if wo could induce miners to: talsp in* all the  mini ng; lands an d spend $ 10 per acre on 11.  640 acres was not top ranch. v .-,. ��������� y  , Mr Httinpbreys conciuted with the member  for ; Koptenayi There! wer������ numberless  benches on the Fraser which could only be  worked this way.;;.', 'Xy  /Mr,-Robertson asked what, difference it  would make to British Columbia whether the  money per acre is spent by a company or an  individual?     -:  Mr Humphreys showed bis experience in  mining. He had belonged to a company, and  it was computed that $15,000 would be required to bring in. water; Had tbey been  able to have secured a grant in' this manner  fhey. could have raised the capital and worked,  rhe grounds Whereas, with the law as.itstood,  they were compelled.to abandon the ground;  That was the way this Bill would lock up tbe  mining land. y\  Mr, Walkem said 640 acres might answer on  the banka of the rivers, but north of Qnesnel-  m outh it would never answer. He" therefore  moved that south of Quesnel should be tbe  limit of the.large grants of C40 acres.  This was carried by the casting vote of the  chairman,       ;      ; :-  .  Mr Robertson moved for 500 acres north of  Quesrielmoutb; y  A tie vote of 9 ensued, and. the chairman  said, after some hesitation, that having voted  for the previous, motion he wpnld vote for  this.   [Cheers and clapping of bands,]  Mr Todd moved that 640 acies be added  for creek claims, ././���������-. ....���������;; .[ X, ���������  Mr Beaven thought the amendment went  too far.   He spoke-ajrainst large grants.  Mr Humphreys said the hon. Chief Commic-  sioner misunderstood the object of this clause.  It provided against,capitalists monopolizing  land in newly-discovered mines. .;  Mr Robson said if we ceuld not get indi  vidual miners to work tbe ground, why, not  get capifalislsto do so;?,   If 50 miles were  granted it wmiId not be to lock up the imnes  but to develop them.   ;:  Mr: Barnston spoke agahist giring these  I arge ��������� grants;;.--.. ,'";;. r -;'        (,Vr - -y  "':'���������';.Mr Toddte amendnient Was;oarried, i v  yyClaiiPe 3;was carried;- - y-'V>  Mr Humphreys said the capital laid out on  these grants sltouii be considered as really  the payment.,;. .y}y t.-,'-i  ��������� It was resolved that the sum of $1 an acre  be the rate at which the 1 and shal 1 be sold.  Five dollars as the amount of the record fee  was inserted. Two years was decided as the  period for which these grants should be-jheld  good.  .. .-   ���������  ��������� It Was moved that SI0 per acre should be  spent within the two years on the land in  order to retain the grant.   Carried,  ���������. Mr Boptbj)ropo8ed that the further sum of  $4 be paid before the certificate be issued.  Mr Robertson thought that $11 per acre  was eleven times more than the agriculturist  paid for land, which, by cultivation, was constantly improving; whereas, in mining, the  land was every day becoming poorer by having treasure extracted from Ifc.  The amendment was put and carried.  Clause 7 as amended passed.  Clause 8���������$10 was inserted as the amount  that shall.be expended per aere intwo years.  Mr Todd proposed a fresh clause to the  effect that a company shall be entitled to a  Crown grant on.the production of a certificate  from the Gold Commissioner that tbey have,  paid the sum of $2 50 per acre lost.
