OUR MAILS.  y It is a thousand pities that year? ago,  when tbe Labouchere was still afloat, and the  Forwbod available! and did us good service  in lowering rates of freight and passage, it is  ���������apity, I say, that arrangements were not  made for the conveyance of mails. Thousands of dollars for foreign aid would have  been saved to the colony, or. expended here.  and an increased population would have been  the result' While on this subject, had government from four to six years ago, paid a  .steamer to ply between Victoria and the settlements, with tbe regularity that now characterizes the Sir James Douglas, 'dozens of  cheerful and thriving settlements would now  dot our coasts and austere wild lands, in-  ^tea4'0f-^l^������^v^s--aBd������^bree3-:t*>~&se. -now^hr; ������ird~I~iqjpt'ml trfevf ^iciTfo'.^^I-Tntiau'' ttntttn^'������������������<'~  count up. It is a farce and fallacy to talk of  protection to farmers in the same breath as  duties on articles of foreign produce. What  protection does a farmer waut with tho necessaries of life at the prices they have all  along fetched here ? Good bacon at this moment is 37k cents per lb. 1 It used to be 17  to 20 cents ; :"butter is constant at G2������ to 75  ���������cents f and pork stands first in the list for  price of meats, beef being cheapest. On  poultry, if the keeping of them be .made a  business, 200 to 300 per cent can be realized.  him. ��������� But the case is very different with regard to the Postmaster's late assistant, and  the Treasurer, Mr. Watson. 'To-assert that  either of these gentlemen have a claim for compensation for being no longer in government  employ, is . to utter nonsense. They were  both fortunate .in so long holding appointments, though certainly with credit to themselves ; biit when discharged or superseded,  as hundreds are every day in private employ,  I should like to know whence arises the right  to compensation. Had their services been  gratuitous, and had resulted in loss of any  kind to themselves, a pecuniary or other compensation might luive been admissible. But  simply that their occupation audits attendant pay has lapsed, however *it may call for  the sympathy of private friends, is in my  opinion, no case for public compensation or  feeling. -fifi fififi fifi.

JE. .SJ5L  !  my assertion to the English mail, for not finding United States and Canada mails in the  British consul's office, the astute MiVMason  did' not think, I suppose, of crossing the street  to ask for them. < '  EDUCATION fifi  Is the all-engrossing topic for political agita-  ���������   tors.   It appears that Governor Seymour has  : not pleased a great many by his precious  y message on the education question ; the.ma-  . sjority of'his opposers seem to have# fastened  ;   on the opinion that he is strongly opposed to  % the education of the masses.    But first of all  ,  let us fall back on our definitions.    In using  : the term education, most of those in whose  v mouths it is most common, do not, I fear,  y-iise  it   in . the enlarged acceptance of the  fififijfefoa.fi In their minds, the idea is limited to  '���������^secular; Instruction:   Ail   the  grander'-and  fiAfimpre responsible and fuller meaning conveyed  ' .by the word, is not intended by them.    They  .���������simplymean instruction as regards learning  ;  by means of book or voice, something which  shall   convey intellectual information.   But  moral training, good conduct and manners  seem never to have entered their list of requirements..     Non-sectarian teaching with  them means non-religious.    There can be no  common neutral ground of mere Bible teaching and Christian morality  on   which the  Baptist could meet, the Wesley an, and the  latter the Church of England man.    There is  no: quiet, " no man's iand,V in which the  Protestant can peaceably converse with the  Romanist, holding a mutual Christian belief.  No, the firebrand of altercation aud religious  -animosity would at'once, be kindled, doctrinal points must be instilled, as if with the  sole object of carrying out'  the prophetic  ���������words of the author of our religion, " think  not that I am come to send peace on the  earth ; I came not; to  send peace,  but a  sword."   It is wished by some that the minds  of youth shall be left innocent of any religious training at all, until they shall voluntarily take up a full-grown system of their  own : for which they will no doubt be thoroughly competent, for though utterly ignorant  of the merit3 of the various systems, they will  be so entirely without bias !   Specious, very,  "but these theorists forget that the youthful  mind is very much like the ground ;if not occupied by wholesome plants, it fills spontaneously with noxious weeds;  OFFICIALS. ' fi '���������.-     '   -  Great dissatisfaction prevails at losing two  popular officials. I allude to the Treasurer  and the Chief Justice. The former is nodoubt  a man thoroughly well adapted for his responsible post j. and the latter, one of the  few who has given thorough satisfaction in  the discharge of his onerous duties. I think  that the Chief Justice, though . strictly speaking not sent away, but superseded, very contrary to all anticipations, is indeed an  ill used man. When he came out hereto  -nil the post of judge, he had not the remotest  idea that the engagement would be but for a  .year or two. The legislature, though not the  same legislature that brought him out and  voted his salary, the legislature, which in this  case would'be the Executive,, should make  jt their business to. award compensation in  tne case of a Judge brought out by the popular will, being superseded through no fault  or ins own, but owing to political changes  Drought about by members of the very As-  ^mbly.that were instrumental in sending for)  JAMAICA   OUTBREAK.  ' Staff surgeon Morris, of Jamaica notoriety,  has been tried by court martial, in Jamaica,  for shooting, or being accessory to the shooting of a man. By the evidence called for the  defence, the case was put in a very doubtful  light. But the sentence will not be known  till it emanates from the War Office, after receipt of the report of the court martial.  fififi    A HONDURAS.  The Indians of the south-western portion o  Yucatan, commonly called the Chichiwha Indians, have been laying claim to all the north  west portion of Honduras (British), as far  south as the Belize River and have been demanding payment for mahogany cut there.  As a party of workmen failed or refused.last  year to comply with the  demand, they were,  with all the women and children, numbering  70 persons in all, at once carried off; one  man was killed in the scrimmage.    Camel,  the chief, demanded $12-000 ramson, and obtained $3,000ywhich was paid by government  An English force of soldiers and volunteers set  out for the Indian village, San Pedro.    When  out seven days, the Indians suddenly appeared,  and though unintentionally on our pare, firing  commenced, and Lieut. Ferguson at once fell.  The major in command, thinking himself surrounded, at once ordered a retreat, which  soon broke into a  disgraceful flight ; a river  soon covered the troops from the enemy. But  the same night, the major continued his flight  without his men, leaving ammunition, rockets and doctor's stuff.   The editor of the Colonist (not DeCosmos or  Higgins)   was with  the expedition, and being lame, has not since  been heard of.   The beauty of the matter is,  that the Indians were to the full as frightened  as the colonists, for they  at once fled in  the  opposite direction ; but only numbered 30  meu to our 140, so it was more excusable.  300 men have since started to give them a  lesson.  FENIANISM.  Sixty-nine Fenians were captured on board  of two steamers from England for Dublin, the  Alexandra and the St. Columbia. At the  sight of the constables on the wharf with  drawn cutlasses, they had thrown most of  their revolvers, &c, overboard. It is intended  to drag the river (LifFey) to recover them.  The. cavalry force will, be kept up to seven  regiments. Total number of troops about  20,000.  PAPAL STATES.  Outside of Rome, and within the Papal territories, the state of things is fast becoming  intolerable. The brigands, when crossing  the frontier (to Italy) were driven back by  the Italian troops, and the unfortunate inhabitants'were not sure of a dayV tenure of  their lives or properties. There was  an encounter between fifty brigands and  six gendarmes and six soldiers'. When three  of the latter had been killed, the nine others,  overwhelmed by numbers, surrendered.  With fiendish atrocity tbe captors at once tied  them to trees, and deliberately quartered  them alive ! save one whom they allowed to  go free, to spread the news. One soldier,  young and unused to the sight of blood, at  the sight of his mangled comrades, went into  convulsions, and died before being .himself  dismembered.   Such is a part of Italy now.

MAIL SUMMARY.  Although most of.: the news -contained in  our Eastern exchanges has already been anticipated by telegraph, still a recital of the de-  - tails ou some'of the topics -may not prove unr  y^ilSrj&nT^  absorbing question which excites comment  and discussion; both in and out of Parliament  :at this moment, appears to be the Reform  Bill,   The course which the government is  fifi% pjirsuing in tli is' matter seems to have produced grcat: discontent through all'the large]  towns and cities, in:-England.   Indignation  .meetings .have: been held at Manchester, Bradford, Leeds, Bristol, Wolverhampton, South-,  .amptoh,.Kewcastle-pn-Tyne and;other places;  where the language used was; rather; warm.  Iii the House of Common's, the.Chancellor of  the Exchequer (Disraeli) in the course of a  speech of three hours': duration, proposed a  'fi: series -of 13 resolutions'; in .which he proposed  ��������� Ifi to confer four hew franchises, applicable to  boroughs and ' counties, an education franchise, a. ������30 savings bank: franchise, the pos-  : session-of.funded;.property:to the amount of  ���������:������50,'and the payment-of seventy shillings a  ;: year of direct taxes.": It.: was contended ��������� that  these. various'���������;franchises; .won]d-. add 80,000  votes',to;Jthe-;borpugh^and; 124,000  to. the  ' county constituencies;   It was proposed also  .to; reduce  thp;borough  franchise to  a ������6  rating, and ������20 for counties/which would add  130,000 voters to the foririer^and 80,500 to  the latter constituencies^ making in all 400,-  000 new voters.:1 It'was ."also: intended to dis-  Lieutenant Brand, of Jamaica notoriety,  whose insulting letter to Mr. C. Buxton,  caused his recall and disgrace, has apologised  to that gentleman in a most satisfactory  manner.  A terrible calamity had occurred on the  Lancaster and Carlisle railway hear Penrith.  A wagon which contained 5 tons of gunpowder was thrown across the line, and while it  was still there, another luggage train coming  up, ran into it and the powder exploded.rThe  driver and stoker of the second train were  killed :and immense damage was done to the  property which was being conveyed. The  Easternque6tion.will.be solved, not by the  Western Powers, but by. Turkey,, who will  emancipate, the Christians, re-establish a good  understanding with the Mussulmans and convoke a national assembly. Although the well  known case Yelverton ��������� vs. Yelverton stands  first in order of the cases set down for hearing in the House pf - Lords, it is understood  the case will not come ou at: present. ;"���������-: Intelligence lately received in St. Petersburg  states that the works of the .Russo-American  Telegraph are being actively carried on ; it is  expected that the line will be open by 1870.  In the Chinese section of the'Paris Exposition  there is to bo a restaurant kept by two women  from the Celestial empire. . The emancipation of the Russian serfs is still far from being  completed; according to an -official return  just published there were at the beginning of  the present year no fewer than 3,965,410 peasants still undter obligation. The answer of  ^Fe^l^Certo'We"SeT^ah deifiand for 'Cession  of the fortress of Belgrade, is of a most conciliatory, character, and affords every hope  of a satisfactory solution to this long vexed  question.

By so doing the corners will be  less liable to crack off. , The same process  will work well with all edge tools. These  directions have been gathered from various  sources';- mostly from writers in the Scientific  American, at different times. Only such have  been given above as all appear to agree in.  Should the careful experience of any of our  readers disprove anything of tho,above, or  suggest anything new, we should be happy to  report the same. Good, well proportioned  and well tempered picks, in mining operations, is a most important consideration ; and  their " sharpening" should never be trusted  to unskilful hands.���������M. & S.

N  The recent Fenian outbreak at Kerry has  induced the government to prolong the sus  pension of the habeas corpus act in. Ireland  until the 1st June.   The scene of this abortive  insurrection lies at the south-eastern extrem-  , iiy of Ireland, in a district exceedingly wild  znd. desolate, but well known":to .travellers  s'rom its natural beauties.   Its events were  fifi confined to the -15 miles, of road between the  , squalid  village of Cahirciveen and the town  or Killarney, iu the county of Kerry.   Cahiv-  tfiveen is on the coast at the head of Valenlia  Harbor.   On a certain night, a party of Fenians of unknown number, but said  to be  well armed, advanced along the road from  C'lhireaveen.to Killo'rglin.   They were met at  .

TEMPERING MINING PICKS.  There is probably.no service to which steel  can be put, which-so effectually tests its value  as in mining picks. The tempering of a pick  is a very nice piece of work, and should be  done with great care. In the first place, a  good -charcoal fire is necessary, next good  steel, then a good light hammer, with a  smooth-faced anvit, and lastly a man is  needed with a good keen eye, considerable  experience aad excellent judgment. No  good pick can be turned out if auy of the  above essentials are wanted in the process.  A pick should never be " upset," nor hammered endwise, nor raised above a full red  heat. The steel should moreover be heated  as quickly as possible, as long exposure to  heat���������even if that heat is not in excess���������injures its texture. . Many blacksmiths find  great difficulty in tempering picks, because  they do not choose good steel. After being  heated, the pick must be worked with care,  special pains being taken, in drawing it out,  to hammer on all sides alike���������in one place as  much as another. "..*  When ready for hardening, it should be  heated in the blaze of a charcoal (ire until red  hot, and then plunged into cold rain water,  and kept thereuntil it is nearly cold ; but if  kept too long in the water, or until it is quite  cold, the corners are liable to fly off. Some  blacksmiths use saltwater. No salts, of any  kind, should exist in the water ; but the  water should he cold ; if the water be warm,  if a-little ice should be. thrown in to cool it,  the tempering will be all the better. Pure  soft water for hardening will make a tough  pick, and one less liable to crack at tbe  edges, than where salt water is used.  NOTICE.

Cameronton, B. C, April 8th 1866. ll-3ih  Thr Universal Practice of mixing Chicory and  other adulteratives with Cotfee, has very much damaged in public estimation, what ought to be tho most  delicious of Beverages'. ' So effectually have the public  been drugged with such mixtures that the true proper-  lies have been lost sight of, and many prefer a black  and thick infusion to a drink rich iu spirit and aroma.  General as is the use ol Coffee, it is little known that  in condensing the vapors extracted from the berry in  roasting, a liquor is obtained of the most nauseous  taste, and ol* a scent the mostunbearable.   Under such  circumstances it is 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 the case in the  confined cylinder.?   This object is admirably accomplished by the new and patentl'Conical Coflce Roaster"  as used by FELL & CO., Victoria, in which the berry  is directly exposed to the radiated heat, and the vapor  extracted carried off instantaneously.    In addition to  the advantage to bo derived by the rapid removal of  the steam containing the objectionable properties, the  pure aroma of the Coffee is retained, the essential oil  being preserved and not exhausted as in the Cylinder  Roaster, where the Coffee is required to remain a much  longer time in consequence of the steaming it undergoes by the confined steam.   It is chemically impossible to retain the qualities or arrest tho deterioration of  Coffee when ground.   The heat engendered by the pro*  cess of roasting, and especially of grinding, creates an  action in the elementary parts which gradually destroys  its fitness fur drink.     Rut to retain tho essential oil  which it contains \ve have it encased in tins containing  from 1 lb. to28 lbs., and which can be had from any ol  the respectable dealers.

Along the line of wagon road between Yale  and Cariboo a large quantity of grain is being put in by the farmers this spring, owing  no doubt to the very remunerative prices obtained for feed during the past winter, as well.  as the facilities now afforded the farmers by  the establishment of,grist mills at convenient  points wi thin the colony. Above Yale the  first Ranch of any importance is. that owned  by Messrs. Boothroyd Bros., on which some  30 acres of Oats and Timothy Hay will be  raised; the soil and climate being unsultod  for the cultivation of any of the other cereals  with advantage. At Lytton, in addition to  the cultivation of the usual quantity of Barley, Oats and Root crops, we were' pleased to  learn that Sir. Sayward intends to try the Peanut, a.plant that thrives well in California,  where it is in great demand ; the soil around  "Lytton is supposed to be favorably adapted  for its growth. At Oregon Jack's Ranch,  owned by Mr. Darling, over one hundred  acres will be put under crop this season, consisting of Barley, Oats and Wheat. Pump-  Inns, .Water Melons, Indian corn, &c, have  been:successfully raised ou this Ranch, the  cliniate being very favorable lor their cultivation,lowingtb the total absenoo of frost  during two or three of the summer months.  Messrs. Cornwall, at Ashcroft, will sow about  75. acres inOats, Barley and Wheat, They  are now retailing Barley at Sets. s$. lb.

Preparations are being made at McLean's, on .the  Bonaparte, and around the Junction, for raising a good deal of grain this Spring. At Lake  La Hache, Mr. Anderson will sow with Oats  and Barley, about 40 acres, Mr. Murphy, at.  the 141-Mile Post, intends putting in from  sixty to seventy acres, in Oats, Barley and  Wheat. Mr.Toomey, of the 150-Mile Post,.  will raise 60 acres of grain, of which 50 acres  will consist of Oats and the balance in barley.  Mr. Moffat, at Soda Creek, will sow 40 acre's of  wheat. On the river .trail and around Williams Lake, a large area will be devoted to the  cultivation of Wheat this season, in consequence of tlie inducement held -out by the  erection, of Mr. Adams' Flour Mill at Soda  Creek. . We have as yet been unable to learn  the exact number of acres that will be laid  down on the various Ranches. -The following  are a few of those/heard from :���������    .

The superior advantages which  the extensive valleys and plains of British  Columbia hold out for the establishment of  cattle and sheep runs, are at. last inducing  many to embark in this enterprise, and if a  little precaution is only exercised in growing  sufficient fo������d to provide against the contingencies of the winter months, the enterprise  will undoubtedly be crowned with success.  Ah instance of the absence of such a provision  is to be found in the case of Messrs. Cornwall,  of Ashcroft, wha lost 19 head of stock last  winter through sheer,-,starvation, occasioned  by the freezing and crusting of the snow,  which enveloped the whole; of the -whole of  the Bonaparte valley to a depth of two. feet,  for several weeks. Fprtunately,rby: dint. of  good luck, they were able to save 290 head  of cattle* and 60 bows.        A-fifi fifi fi.''[fififi.  That p ortion of the country lying between  the lOO mile .post and Williams Lake, on the  line of the wagon road, seems to be better  adapted for .stock raising, than for farming ;  and this is the light in which' thesetttere appear to view it, for every ranch: has its quota  of stock.
