Sometimes, indeed  he will find it necessary toMash and work himself up into the required paroxysm, as when  Jean Paul makes Siebenkas Leibgeber. "when  he had resolved to carry out a certain purpose  to wit, the pawning of a striped calico gown,  foresee that he would have to grow unusually  warm," and therefore, when Lenette began to  weep ami waiLover hard fate, which left her  nothing, not even her dress, he replied, "Heavenly, good, gentle, devil, come and break ray  neck!

Be-  cpmirig; drowsy as the night passed slowly  away, he fiually fell asleep a little past raid-  night in his chair. His slumber had grown  deeper and heavier, until he became oblivious  to a 11 aro im d, Fr o m his d ee p sleep he was  suddenly awakened by a light crash and the  sound of a leap. Terrified by the sudden re-  cpliections of his.surroundings, he no. sooner  opened;his eyes than they rested upon a. large  cat Which had. forced its way through a light  of glass: in the window, and, with that terrible  desire which tb e sp e ci os exiub i t f0 r teas ti ng  iipon the remains of deceased persons, had already commenced its work upon the neck of  the corpse. Startled at tho horror of his position, it required all the strength of mind of  the watcher, who stated the circumstance to  th e writer, to ac co ra p 1 i sh an e ffo r t to wards  driving the animal away, and it was oniy by  sheer force that it could be effected ; when  compelled to. desist, the cat fled from the room  with an almost supernatural cry* Our informant relates that he never .was placed iu a  situation, so terrible, or one which tried his  self-possession with so much severity.���������-Milwaukee"'News.' .  Suspicion.���������Upon one occasion .when Mr.  Webster was on his way to attend to his duties at Washington, he was compelled to proceed at night by stage fr������m Baltimore. He  had no travelling companions, and the driver  had a sort of felon-look which produced no  inconsiderable alarm with the senator. : "I  endeavored to tranquilize him," said Mr.  Webster,{t and had partially succeeded when  we reached the woods between Bladenburg  and Washington (a proper scene for murder  or outrage), and here I confess my courage  again deserted mo." Just then the driver  turning to me, with a gruff voice, asked my  name. I gave it to him. "Where are you  "���������oing ?" said he. The reply was, " to Wash-  fngton, I am a senator." Upon this the driver seized me fervently by.the l?aiid, and exclaimed, ? How glad I am. I have been trembling in my seat'for the last hour; for when  Hooked at you, I took you to be a highwayman."

Like cveiy other: system  when hew that of gold mining has fallen under general contempt, everything that is per-  ilious, rash, desperate and immoral is attributed to the adherents of this profession ; they  are said to be made dissojute and arrogant by  success, clamorous and disconte 'ed by adversity, men who forsake their homes but to  forget their country, and forget their country  but to deny their God. But the. data from  which this disreputable character of gold  seekers is deduced, arc as false as those by  ' GOLD ���������; MINING. '��������� ;  Before beginning to investigate or study  any intricate subject, we generally require to  prepare our minds by endeavouring, to, for-  wet many ideas erroneously formed upon the  matter. Thus the student of astronomy has  to disabuse his mind ol.the idea that the earth  is a plane, or that the sun. moves .round the  earth, before he can enter upon ^the study ot  that interesting science; and if this bo true of  studies'that have existed for centuries, much  more is it true of the theories and sciences of  modern times. ..->...-������������������"     -,.  Political Economy, as a. science, is one of  the most modern of these, and although founded principally unon statistics and history,-yefc  ^"fow economists have been able to eliminate  these false quantities so that they can deduce  reliable results from the many operations and  combinations of capital and labor., :Tbis science is so closely connected with .the.civilization and the . progress, tlie' comfort, and the  happiness of tlie human race-that erroneous  v yy.  doctrines arc discovered every year by general experience which have arisen from wrong  impressionson the subject;   When the cxten-  ;sive gold fields of Australia and California  were simultaneously opened up, all political  economists without a dissenter expressed it  as- their opinions that; there would be a great  depreciation in tbe standard value or gold;  but those rich gold fields still continue to  yield largely, and.othcr rich fields have since  been discovered, and yet it has no perceptible  r *    effect oh-the universal standard of exchange.  The reason has since been discovered.    The  rapidity- with, which new and-distant coun-j  tries have been opened up, and the ever strong  and increasing inclinations of human nature  towardscomforts and extravagance would re-  -quire more than.teu times the yield, of the last  twenty years -'.iii gold  to  affect; its absolute  value'in the least.   It is one; of the general  principles of this usefnl science that all com-  ���������   aiodities are cheapest at the places of greatest-production, and it was on .this hall-truth,  which is often a whole error, that political  economists founded their erroneous theory of  the depreciation of gold, for after investigation proves that whatever the richness or extent ofthe gold fields may be, tbe only effect  produced will be a corresponding rise in the  prices ofthe necessaries and luxuries of lite,  nod it seems now  to  be a question, among  ���������economists whether thefuturo supply oi gold  will be sufficient to furnish money enough for  the rapid progress of the backward parts of  the world and tlie immense   developments  their resources seem sure to obtain.  Another great error depending partly on  the former oiie also crept into this question of  the production of gold. ; A steady decline in  tbe produce ofthe gold fields both in Austra-  1 ia and California b'vr been reported for years,  but this opinion is contravened by more accurate evidence.   The decline in the yield of  ���������the Australian mines is to be attributed to the  fact that many of the miners have migrated or  v.": 'have:turned ttieirattenfipn^to.:;other pursuits  'ratherthan to. a dimishing fertility iofthb mines;  - '���������' inlaetthe gold; fieldslof Victoria:yielded more  :-Tn^proportion to;t^e number: of laborers; in  ISfiithan in any of-the-, previous years ; 97,  :    :������42: miners .obtaining/1,702,460 ounces, m  IBP: -93,293 obtaining 1,578.979 ounces, in  '.   1883; and S3.395 obtaining l,t>57;397 ounces,  4a lS,6i.:; The export of treasure from San  : Francisco in the fiscal year ending in June,  4SG4, amounted to the value oF $51,264,023;  the larger proportion being in the .latter half  of tilafc period and the entire sum. being considerably greater than in any other,year since  1850.:   It would appear therefore that this idea  ���������of decline in the productions of those mines is  .based on a fallacy, and; the reason of the apparent diminution in their yield arises from  the fact .that the rapid production of gold, ui  such-a short time in these countries, has, instead of becoming depreciated in value, created such a rise in all commodities that the tempo ra;ry:profoss km of miningis abandoned for  Hhe time by^many of the miners,, who have  ���������adopted again,their former, trades and professions, and the general and rapid prosperity of these countries in agriculture and com-  '<* '    .

Nor is there likely to be any diminution in the ferliiicy of the'gold fields for years  to come, for the application of machinery and  new inventions as well as the economy of labor to gold, mining will: make - poor mines  more productive...Uxaji.Jj\e.L.rjcb; ..phes were  w hen' worked wi th rude ap pliances.    Those  false theories regarding gold mining, although  prejudicial to all goldfields,- are as injurious  tpithis colony as they are . false.'    A li thi hgs  considered, it raay'be shown by statistics that  the yield of gold in:this colony is yearly oh;  the increase, notwithstanding the all but universal idea that since 1863 these mines are on  the d ec line. ' Th is idea ' fi rst orig ina ted with  the real estate speculators of the city of Victoria, who were most diligent in acting on the  delusion, without taking into account that although the. increase of the value of the real  estate was' really caused by the rapid increase  of gold, yet a very great part of the -current  gold invested in Victoria came not from the  mines of British Columbia but from the Banks  and Exchanges and from the mines of California and Australia.   Hence the first fall in  the value of real estate in that city was due,  not so much to any decrease iu the fertility  of our mines, as to a temporary and abnorm-  which for years was the/common refuge of  the worlds' out-laws. This delusion is as sn-  jurious as it is unjust, especially on the part of  the clergy of all denominations in the Colon/,  w' o, with but two exceptions, seem to h* o  deserted us entirely, at least, in the winter  months when their services would be *v>ost  beneficial. They seem to contradict their;  own arguments by their conduct, or to be  wholly ignorant ofthe very spirit of the gospel they "pre tend to preach which according  to the apostle was sent unto ",the worst first"  and as against the Government we claim the  icommon privilege of all Britons���������the right to  growl.   ;..',;;  . It is a fundamental error to make the history of gold mining in any other, country a  source of precedents hr mining in'this colony.  Ih other mining cou \tries a'gricultural..:vnd  commerce became competetitors; here J.}.ey  are hardly auxiliaries, and in proof of this  witness the square miles of luxuriant fern that  surrounds the city of Victoria as well as the  manyfertilc localities on the mainland yet  unoccupied. .Itis impossible to apply laws  adapted only to rival departments���������to those  departments that are dependen'��������� and this  seenis to be the secret of so much apparent  depression in the colony. This is. decidedly  a gold producing country which will never  export anything else except wool, and perhaps in the course of a.number of years, lumber. The u nd I v \ u ed a tie n i i on therefore, of al 1  colonists.sholild in tlie meantime be turned  towards gold mining, and every concession  should be niade by the Government which  .may J end to. make it ajiermanent and reputable* profession, and lot rill stnve",to'discover  aiid endeavour to forget the many, fallacies  that have so long surrounded and injured  the most ihdependent'of all.professions. /.. .

We havo no returns at hand by which wc can  compare the productiveness of our mines with  those of California, but we have hot the least  doubt but that the comparison would be as  favorable as the former one.   It is when we  compare proportionate areas ot the respective gold fields however that the richness of  our mines appears to eclipse all others so far  as to be almost fabulous.   At least two-thirds  of the gold found Jn  this district has been  taken- out;of Will:ams creek and. two of its  gulches, an area of only two - miles and a half,  inlengthby abouta quarter efa hiile in width,  ;nor is it jeMearly worked out; and we can  even.libw point to Grouse creek as a convincing argument that there Is more- than one  very inch crbek in this district:    ;  ���������:.��������� The miiiei^a of tt)is colpny have also to bear  even more than their proportion of the odium  unjustly cast upon their class.

Whatever excuse there may be for wrong impressions on many subjects connected with  the miners, theae can bo none for tins wilful  ignorance on the part of our rulers and teachers.   It is an admitted princip 1 e in politics  that no class of people, is worse than.their  rulers make them, and if in this case the miners, are really; as bad as they are said to be  their accuser^ cannot throw the first stone.

The companies that have worked, diiribg the  wintbr between Cameronton andvBarkerville  have Ji een incessantly; tailing into /the old,  bed of tlie creek until the channel, has become'  several feet higher than the rest'of the surface, and the water of the creek is onlyrcon-  fined by banks . of ice.    The great cost of  these Institutions: and the   impossibility of  working any part of Williams creek if these  drains be 'destroyed, render their, protection  from the coming freshet a matter of the first  importance, hot only to the miners on the  creek but also to the inhabitants of the whole  district.   As it is not'likely that the second resolution of the Mining i Board regarding the,  protection of the Drains and other underground works will become law sufficiently  soon to meet the present exigency, the attention of all parties requires to be called to the  exposed condition of bur public drains.   The  past neglect in hot building proper bulk-heads  and otherwise securing   them has been .so  great that ti will be impossible for a few men  or even a few companies to keep the creek  out of the drains during the coming freshet  unless some system be observed and a united  effort made, for it will- be madness io  trust  any longer to fortunate escapes.  & Coi* yaiid: the ���������< Chairman y alter-:���������vvMeh we  aa:airi:assembledimthejiall--to holdyavseeona'  meetingl   The Chair was again occupied ? hy  Capt;Evans. ^Mr^JoshuaPriep:read a paper  on the li- Duiy of man; a& amember of society. \ I -  A comic dialogue cdlled 1" The conversations;:  of the Mil,."-was-recited by-Messrs.

Doctor W���-s the Bishop of Casbel, having
-occasion to visit Dublin, accompanied by his
wife and daughter, determined to perform the
.journey by easy stages, in his own carriage,
and with his own.sleek and well fed horses,
3 ostead of trusting. his bones to the. tender
-:-mercies of an Irish post-chaise, and the un-
ybroken garrons used for drawing these crazy
vehicles.   .
One part of his route was through a wild
. and mountainous district, and the/bishop: beting* a very;humane man, and considerate of
his. cattle, made a point of quitting, his carriage, at the foot of every hill,-and walking to
the top.',. On one of these, occasions he had
loitered1 to look'at the extensive prospect, in-
..'du}gingin:areverie.upon its. sterile appear^
. ���aiice, and the. change that agriculture might
produce, and in/so doing suffered his family
and: servants to be considerably in advance;
perceiving this boh (listened to make up . fo r
/lost time, and was stepping out with his. best
apeed, when a fellow leaped out from behind.
a heap of loose stones, and accompanying the
iiourish of ahnge club.with a demoniac yell
. demanded/'Money I" with a ferocity of tone
and manner perfectly appalling.    .
The bishop gave the robber all the silver he
had!loose in;hi8 pocket.-hoping-that .it would
.' satisfy him/,,.but he/was mistaken, .for no
sooner bad the ruffian stowed it away- in a
with another whirl of his bludgeon,' and an
awful,bath; he exclaimed���/��� ��� ryyy ��� .'

"And how be oil'with you, and thank the'
-blissed saints that you  lave me without a
scratch on your skin, or !the value of your
little finger'hurt."- '      .
.'It needed no persuasion to induce the bishop to turn his back upon the despoiler of
��his worldly goods, and having no weight to
carry, he set oft* at What equestrians term a
hand canter; scarcely, however, had he reached the -midtl le of the precipitin bus road, when
he perceived his persecutor running after;him

in his face such evidences -of terror.and. suited ng; that they, speedily checked.their risible inclinations, particularly when they knew

The obnoxious garment was removed ; tbe

; The surprise and joy of all parties may be
imagined; they reached the inn ..where they
proposed stopping for the night, andas tbe
portmantues had escaped the dangers of the
road, the bishop was speedily able to attire
himself canonicallyy Before the party, retired
for rest, intelligence arrived that the highwayman had been taken after a desperate resistance, "the notice of the police being attracted by the singular appearance of a man of his

party, in an English country town, were bantering poor Teddy about his countrymen being so famous for bulls. -       - ���/:.-'���  .
���" By my-faith," said Teddy, "you need not
talk, about that same in this place, you arc as
fond of bulls as any people in all the world,
so you are. for in this paltry .bit of a town,
you have more public houses nor I ever seen
wid the sign of the Bull over the doore, so
you have, I am sure I could count half a dozen
of them/' " Pooh, nonsense 1" cried the party.
1 [ that will never do. What will yon bet on
that Teddy?" "Indeed my brave boys I'll
not bet at all; I'm no better I assure you ;
I should be worse, if I were," This sally
tickled his 'companions., and he proceeded,
"But I'll be bound to name and count the
six.   There's the Black Bull."
"���That's one, go on."  /
'" And the Red Bull." .
" That's two, go on."
"And the White Bull, and the Pied Bull/!
" That's four."
_�� And there's tbe Golden Bull."
"'Well done Teddy; that's five sure enough,
but you're one short yet."
"And then remimbcr," continued Teddy,
careful!v perusing his enumeration, " there's
the Dun" Cow."
At this, a burst of laughter shook the room.
amidst boisterous cries of =" A Bull, A Bull."
Looking seriously at all around, Teddy asked, "Do you call that a bull VI. . ....
- " To be sure it's a bull," they exclaimed.
" Then," said Teddy, " that's the sixth."
green mountain farmer eutered the town of
-l^iitland, with his wagon, intending to purchase his winter stock of groceries. : Accosting the. salesman of one of the principle stores
he a^ked if they sold sugar... "We don't sell
anything else," was the knowing reply "Oh.
well then, put me up a hundred pounds, and
I'll call for it in an hour hence." When he
called for his sugar, the. grocer asked him ; if
he required any other articles. , " 1.did," said
the farmer, ���* I wanted a bag of coffee, a barrel of mackerel, soap, salt, and a whole crowd
of other fixi.ns, but I had.to go up town and
get them, for when I asked, you for the sugar
you said you didn't sell anything else."
