After answering the above questions like a  man, in the confirmatiff, the slick little fat old  feller with gold specks on, said I was insured  for life, and would probably remain so for a  term of years.

Court for an outrage on  his honor. The Judges, it appears, were much  embarrassed in pronouncing on the question ;.  but in the end they rejected the plaintifils demand and discharged the defendant, because  it was impossible they said to decide whether  the appellation ^ Bismark " did or did not  involve aa insult falling under the notice of  the.law.;' ������������������  ^S������* Who buys Fell's Coffee ?

In presenting the first number of our fourth  .    Volume'to our readers, we cannot refrain from  ���������congratulating them on the. marked success  '���������;.;.   which has attended mining enterprises during  the long and dreary winter that has just pass-  fifii*;di nor will we attempt to disguise the grati-  -'tfeatibn' it affords/as to Observe (he hopeful  confidence manifested by; almost every indi-  vfidlual in ihe community as to the ultimate  prosperityof thisfink a/mining district. Indeed  we feel certain, that-the-season about to com-  t ..nience will; not -only establish, beyond Vthe  yshadbw'of a doubt,  to the most sceptical  ������croaker, ittutt the -gold fields >of Cariboo are  v not yet "played out," but will moreover cleaiv  ���������1 y provie to ;the wo'rl d th at they 'are on! y ;j ust  (beginning to be properly developed.   Mining  is not now limited to. a fewmonths in the summer, nor is the work confined to the narrow  /    bedsof creeks and gulchesfaa it^vas in former  years, on the contrary* the experience of the  b'past six months has shown that mining opera-  tions can;be as successfully prosecuted iii the  winter as in the>ummer, aiid the discoveries  .that have been made in the hills conclusively  , fix -i nd -icivfe' that the. easiest :wor Iced and ri chest  diggings are;to be found- in that qnarter.  Under these circumstances,.then, we are warranted in believing that the dark clouds of adversity which have-hurig over phr. h6pes in f the  ��������� ;���������: fifiiffistifiimyfi fe^disp^Hi?^.'^/? ihe- Mght~sm&biao  r^f^prosperity that awaits us in the future.;  ' ;.lt. is a source of great satisfaction, to know  W.-ihat instead of the. public faith in. the. riches  and extent of the Canyon Creek quartz leads  ' fiA^iiag ; dirhioished; it has,' if ^possible, been  strengthened by the .flattering prospects obtained  fey the various.-companies engaged  ��������� there during the winter..   We had hoped,  however, with'the return'of spring, to have  'Been one -of.more quartz mills established in  ���������     that district'������������������;��������� but although nothing has been  ) .ydone up to the present time to test the rock,  . <i th er than the construction of - a co u pie of  arf astras, still it is far from being improbable  -; *tbat before many months elapse, a good mill  will be in active operation ; by means of  ^whicb the true aiul.actual value of our quartz  leads will be fully ascertained. -fifi fififi-.  We are pleased to learn that the Big Bend  ��������� '���������������>ountr������ has not yet lost its attractions, for'  : itotwiinstaridi irig the disastrous resu Us of the  : rush of last year, numbers of experienced  .;; .miners are; now returning thither to give the  mine's a fair trial, and if;any-reliance is to be  placed in the reports recently received:, from  ,   French Creek; there is every , reason for be-j  fifi \ ieving that very, important. ��������� develop men ts  -:v>wiii sooni be made there*   fifi v  In turniug from a review of our mining  ���������fi   p rospe! cts, we cairn o t a vo id a passi ng al I usi o n  to.-the financial  condition   of  the   colony,  which, to say the least of it is in anything but  a nourishing state.   Before the, union, it was  confidently imagined'that by the amalgamation of the colonies, our taxation would be  'very materially reduced.; no doubt this has  'been effected to the extent of thousands of  'dollars, but it must be borne in mind that the  number of  our  population   has  also   decreased,  and we will venture to  say that  at    this   moment   the   rate   per   head   is  greater than it- was before the union.   If we  but cist a glance at the estimates / for the  present year,-we will find the enormous sum  ���������of,$701,710 set down as the expense of gov-  , erning us, without -. any appropriation whatever forpublic improvements ; and when we  reflect that this large sura  has got to come  out of the pockets of a population only numbering at the very utmost  about 10,000,  we  ^������re at a loss to see how it is to be raised. That  we are a patient, industrious, and persevering  people, possessing a country rich iii mineral  wealth, will.be readily admitted, but that this  sliould be used as a reason for grinding us  down by excessive taxation, is a doctrine we  cannot endorse.   We hail with pleasure the  prospect of a speedy union with the confederated provinces of British North Americans a  panacea for many of the grievances we have  now to bear ; for until that time arrives, we  shall .only remain in the position of vassals to  i\p irresponsible government which has no  sympathies in common with the people, and  which possesses no greater quality than a  desire ior its own aggrandizement.  eat engross the public attention, but will at a  future time, have occasion to treat them at  greater length, and in'conclusion we have only  to add that,it will be our constant care to  publish nothing but truthful mining reports,  and with this object ih view, we will accept  of none unless procured on the spot, or received from reliable sources.

An ordinary monthly meeting of this Company was held at the Fashion Hotel, Barkerville, on Thursday evening last.   After the  adoption of the minutes of the former meeting? five new members were elected, increasing the force to 27 active members.   The  committee '-; on finance reported that subscriptions for the use v of the department to the  amount of $676. bad: been:'.procuredj_ andy that  /  several additional  subscriptions ������coaldy be  { ^dded tp the list, if time was alio wed them to  'complete their canviass;   Time was accord  ingly granted.   It appears that theestimated  '   cost of the tamk -and all the necessary apparatus, fi.will not exceed $946, thus leaving only  a ^eficiehS^ of $276 to be made up bypsub-  scrip tion. UEt was determined that fee tank or  ���������reservoir should be built at a distance of 100  feet from'the' street, in tie rear of Mr. Strous*s  store, as being the most central position ��������� in  fifi- town, -and;, the secretary; was instructed- to  udvertize for tenders to construet; the' same,  with a capacity; for holding 4,000 gallons of  water, and measuring twelve feet in; length,  by two fee t in width, and three feet in dep th.

Within the past ten  days,the weather has been  very unsettled;  wehave had falls of snow and rain at intervals-followed by cold and frosty nights, but  should we be fortunate enough to enjoy a few  days of mild weather,'there will be very little  cause for complaining of the want of water.  .The Bradley-Nicholson co?y are making preparations for ground sluicing their frontground  and 'rill start washing as soon as they can  get water.���������The Chinese co?y have been making from $10 to 2oz. a day to the hand through  the winter.���������The Taylor co;y are doing well.  r-Deadwood co'y are running a drain to tap  the hill channel; Chey work from the upper  shaft of the Wide-West co?y.��������� Wide-West co'y  have made something over expenses during  the "winter-.���������Jenuy Lind co'y have run a tunnel and struck a hiir channel, which yields  good prospects, they are now waiting for water  ���������Henrietta co'y have been running a tunnel  all Winter, they expect to get Into the channel  ia: a few days.���������Forward co!y worked all winter-and have been taking out.about $12 a  week/over expenses.���������Casket co'y have been  engaged for the last ten weeks in' running a  new tunnel into the hill where they"7'struck a  igp^fij^p^ecv^fiiheyfi are,^now ..washi$g^  McLaren co?y'-lattencl Vor������ing their claim this  season by hydraulicing, everything is ready to  commence operations when 'water is  more  plentiful; there is some rich .ground in this  claim,': two men having taken out in two weeks  last wiuter with a rocker 70 ounces.  ���������The following claims, which were at work  airwioter, - taking out good pay, have suspended -operatioas till the creek rises and  washed off the accumulation of tailings: Well  Mary-yiAnn co'y ; Brouse coiy ; Dutch Bill  cp'y; Bailey co'y ;Steadman co'y, and Six  Tised Pete co'y.' *  'There are no claims at work b.etweenrRich--  field aiid the canyon.

The co'y consists of 16 members,  and the area claimed is no more than what  the law allows by pre-emption, 1600ft. in  length by 300ft. in width. The length of drain  required is estimated at 2,500ft., of which  GOOft, has already been completed. When  drained, this ground will be very valuable  not because of any rich pay it contains,  but from the circumstance that it can be worked during the winter with the water which  runs from the present Bed Rock Draihl' No  small credit is due to the enterprising projectors of this undertaking for the benefit that  the public will derive by the opening up of  ground which wot'ld have remained profitless  perhaps for years. ���������.������������������./' ���������;"-/  fifi; STOUTS   GULCH.

It is expected that they, will  haye to run 40 or 50 ft. further, before the  channel is tapped.  .    /KEITHLEY,S,:OREEK.  The only co'y at work on this creek is the  Anglo-American, which was formed last  winter for the purpose of working by hydraulic a bank 50 ft. from the bed of the creek.  They h'ave just started.

There will also be two companies working  0������ this creek during the season, the .prospects  being encouraging.  HORSE FLY CREEK.  It will be remembered by many that in the  summer of 1866Y the government supplied a  company of four men with provisions and  tools, Xo prc-)spect this creek.    The work was  carried on during that season, but as no discoveries were made a't its close, no further  aid was furnished them from  government.  Nothing daunted, however, by this, the party  procured means from their friends, and continued to prospect through the winter, and in the  following spring received some further assistance, by which they were enabled to prosecute  the work till last-fall, still without any satisfactory results-; having, in the meantime, run a  tunnel over 400 ft., and sunk several shafts,  without finding  bed  rock.    Unfortunately,  their tunnel has since caved, owing to the  very loose nature of the. ground : it is their  intention, however, this spring, to gr6und  sluice a cut up to the end of the drive, and start  drifting again.   Great  confidence- is  felt by  the party in eventually finding good diggings,  and we sincerely trust they may, for so much  perseverance under every difficulty deserves  to be richly rewarded.  ' -..   '    GROUSE CR15EIC.     ,"  A great deal of prospecting has been carried  on through the winter on this creek, but as  yet no indications have been found of the continuation of the-' Heron' lead below that co'ys  lines- It is believed however that the Tiger  co'y, located on the opposite bank of the creek  about a mile below the Heron co'y are on the  channel, as they are now down with a shaft  some 40ft., without any sign of bed rock. The  Black Hawk co'y are supposed to have the  greater part of the lead on the Heron coy's  upper lines.   Owing to the scarcity of water  gulch will eclipse that of 1865.

Ib Ireland, a warming-pan is called a friar.  '.Not many years ago an unsophisticated girl  took service in a hoteL .

So she tpld the girl ;in- a sharp voice  to do,as she was directed,.and she would always do right. Up went Betty, and the unhappy pries ^ despite his angry protestations,  was obliged to turn out of No. 6. and go, iu to  No. 4. But a little.time elapsed ere the girl  was toldtoput the iriar into No. 8. But he  was to enjoy no peace there.. Betty was again  ordered to put the friar into No. 3, and with  tears in her eyes she obeyed. In about an  hour the lady concluded to go to bed herself,  and the-friar was ordered into her room.  Wondering what it all meant Betty roused the  priest, and told him to go to No. 11. The  monk crossed himself,,counted his beads and  went into No..11.; .It so;happened that the  husband of the landlady was troubled with  the green-eyed monster. .Going to bed therefore before his wife, his suspicious were confirmed by seeing between ] his own sheets a  man sound asleep. To rouse the sleeper and  kick him into the street.was. the work of a  moment, nor was the mistake explained till  the next day, when the priest informed the  innkeeper what outrages had been committed  on him, and he learned to his amazement that  he had been serving the whole night as a'  warming-pan.  that " they came very near it that time.'^ Poor  devils I Let them continue to do so^ it amuses them, and it is certainly a highly amusing sight to those who take -the; trouble to  observe them.

The finger pointed  westward, and he resolved to follow it. It  brought him to a door in a. town near ; the  source of the Ohio; at which he knocked. He  related how he had been guided there to the  inmates of the house, and he found them full  of.faith in his pointing finger. They entertained him for some days,.and called in their  friends, who sat around this Ancient Mariner  wi th silent expectation. Again his finger  pointed to the river, and to it the group followed Mm.. There they.found a raft waiting  to be employed, and the old man had an impression that they must ail get. on it, taking  tents, clothing, and provisions j and they  must float down the river to some place after  they, were to;found some kind of New Jerusalem.   Strange as it may seem, well-to-do  men ahd-womenV old and young, embarked  oh this singular'voyage. - On the slow raft,  shoved aside by hundreds of swift, amazed  steam-boats, they floated one or two weeks  without landing, until at length the old man  stood at the front and pointed to the shore  They left the; raft and made their way a mile  from the river, where they mapped out a city  and built some .cabins.    Then' the; pillar of  fire which had led them seemed to melt into  the light of common day.   One after another  they departed, leaving the cabins alone as the  monuments of their adventure; -Butlbelieve  that none of them again lived in the ordinary  way-in human society ; they have wandered  ever since through many parts -of the world,  as if seeking for-something tliey had lost.  Lately,: I saw some of them walking along the  streets of London, with the same sad expect-  ant look.   But-I doubt not they will all find  their way back to the: Ohio; where they belong, as castles belong to theRhineanddocks  to the Mersey.    Ages before, them, the red  aborigines floated down the .same��������� river, following their westward-pointed finger, : and  dreaming of.fairer hunting fields.   And, witb  only a more conventional superstition, steamboat instead of raft���������there went, before them  missionaries, Mormons, Owenites, and Califor-  nian gold-hunters.
