of rescuing alive some of Sir Jolin Franklin's

Was the finding, of a tenting place of a few
white men and a stone pillar they had erected
:close by it at the bottom of Parry Bay, which
is some fifty miles south of the western outlet
of Fury aud Hecla Straits, and the visiting pi
several places where white men and their
traces bad been seen by natives of Ig-loo-lik
and vicinity in or about the years I$66-7. I
also gained much information from the natives of Ig-lborliki North Gog-iik isle, and
thereabouts, that confirmed the repG^jJiad
heard in the? winter of 1867-8, which I have
already stated. And still further proofs of
this report have also been pbtained on aiy

CQUsumed' ninety-six days.J ; / '������'
The result of my .sledge journey to King
- Wil Ham's Land may be summed up thus:
None of Sir John Franklin's companions ever
reached or died on Montreal Island. It was
late in July, 1848, that Cromer and bis party
of about forty or forty-five, passed down the
west coast of King William's Land, in the vicinity: of Cape Herschel. The party was
dragging two sledges on the sea ice,: winch
was nearlyl in - its last stage of dissolution:���
One a large sledge laden with an awning-
covered boat, and the other a small one,
laden with provisions and camp material.
5 Just before Crozier and. party arrived at Cape
Herschel they were met by four families of
natives/ and both parties went into camp
near each other. Two Esquimaux men, who
were of the native party, gave me much sad
but deeply interesting information^ So.me of
it stirred my heart with sadness, intermingled
with rage, for it was a confession'that!they,
wUh. their companions, did secretly and hast?
ily abandon Crozier and his party ���'to'suffer
and die for need-of fresh provisions, when, in
truth, it was ia the power of the natives to
save every man-alive.' The, riext trace.1 of
Crozier. and his party is to-be found in'the
skeleton which McClintock discovered-a little
below, to 'tho southward and ' eastward' pf
Capo Herschel. This was never found by the
natives., Tho.next; trace; is .a,camping.ptoce.
on the 'seashore' of King WilliamV Land,
about three miles eastward of Pleifer*river,
where two men-died' and received Christian
burial... At. this place fish Dories were found
by the natives, which,.showed them that Cror
zier and liis party had caught, while there, a
species-of fish excellent for food, wilh which'
the sea there.abounds; The next trace of this
party occurs s^menye or six miles eastward,
on a long, low point of King William:s"Land,
where one .man died .and was buried.:. Then
about south-south east, two and a half miles
further, the next trace occurs, pri'.TorldVinlet," where the" remains.of'five-men lie.tThe
next certain trace of this party is on the west
side^ of the inlet west of Point Richardson, on
some low land that is an island or a part.of
the mainland as.the tide may be. Here the
awnlrig-covered boat and the remains of thirty
or thirty-five of Crozier's party were found
by the native Poo-yet-ta, of whomSir.John
Ross-.has given-a description in the account
of his voyage in the Victory; 1829-34.
In;tbe Spring of 1849 a large tent was found
by/some of the natives whom I saw, the floor
of w lii eh was' com p 1 etely covered w it h the remains of white mem Close by .were two

ducted by a native well .known throughout
the Northern regions, found' two boats, with
many skeletons in and about them. One-of
these boats had been previously found by
McClintock; the other was found lying from
one-quarter to one-half mile distant, and mast
have been completely entombed in snow al
the time .McClintock's parties were there, or
they most assnredly would have seen it. In
and about this boat, besides the many skeletons alluded to, were found many relics, most
of them-similar in character to those McClintock has enumerated as having been found in
the boat he discovered. The native who conducted this, party iu its search over King
William's Land is the same individual who
gave Dr. Rae the first information about white
men having died to the westward of where he

King William's Land is situated, I cannot
wonder  at   nor  blame   the  Repulse, Bay
natives for their refusal to remain there as 1
desired.   It is quite probable that had we remained, as I wished, no one ol'us would ever
have  got   out of the country alive.   How

and entombed the remains of nearly 100 pi
his companions, for they lie about tbe places
where the three bon ts have been found, ami
at the large camping place at the head ol
Terror Bay, and the Xhree other places that I
Lave already mentioned.   In the Cove, west
side of Point; Richardson, however, Nature |
herself has "opened  her bosom and given
sepulture to the remains of the  immortal
heroes that died there.   Wherever the Esquimaux have found the graves pf Franklin's
companions they have dug them open and
robbed the dead, leaving them exposed to
the ravages of wild beasis.   On Todd's Island
the remains of five men were not buried, but,]
after the savages had robbed them of every
article.that could be turned to any account

The telegraph, a short time ngo, announced  that the British Colonial .Minister bad forwarded despatches to Governor Muagrave  of an important character relating to this colony. : Coming from Ottawa, it was natural to  suppose that the telegram indicated that Confederation was the purport of those despatches which are now in the.bands of Governor  Musgrave. It ig seldom that tbe substance of  government despatches oozes from official  palms before the publication of the documents, and the usual reticence has been observed on this occasion, for nothing but  speculative supposition as to the contents of  tbe despatches seems to. bave assigned Confederation as their drift in Victoria up to the  time of the departure .of the express. We  bayet however, been favored with information, per overland lightning express, viaTete  Jan ne Cache'-'and' Domi nip n Pass, which is of  a much more substantial character than the  theoretic conclusions arrived at by our friends  In Victoria. This informal ion enables us to  state positively that Confedfration is the purport of the despatches. And furthermore, we  are to have'it earlier .than we expected and  sooner than was contemplated by the Imperial and Dominion governments. 1871was,  Bays our overland despatch, the earliest period fixed for our admission into the Dominion, but tbe- next celebration'of Dominion  Day will also mark the extension of the Dominion to the western coast of Vancouver  Island. That is the purport of the despatches  received by Gi������vernor .Miisgrave. Now for  'the reasons, which have induced this prompt  and energetic action. First, it is ostensibly  the action of the Imperial goverrinment. although perhaps at tbe instance of the Dominion government, Assuming that it is the action originally of the Imperial government.  what are the motives that have given so unexpected an impetus to the desire for completing the scheme of union? We know that  when once the Imperial government has deeded upon its policy, it will surely, although  perhaps slowly, attain it's end. There appears to bw nothing in the foreign relation?  of. Her Majesty's government to urge immediate, completion of  the British  American  have demonstrated that a railway across this  continent is not a mere visionary scheme, the  result of extravagant enthusiasm, but a sober,  practical project, and capable, under the more  favorable  conditions of our own shorter  northern route, of being made a great financial and commercial success.   In the event of  a railway being contemplated, the completion of Confederation by, the addition of British Columbia to tbo Dominion is necessary,  for territorial and negotiatory reasons.   We  do not, however, expect to see British capitalists interest themselves in the question of  railway through North America on other than  financial and commercial grounds.   Capital  has little affinity for patriotism.-  It is possible, nevertheless, that in this case national  and commercial reasons are identified.   England id the financial and commercial centre of  the world.   It is probable that in the United  States overland railway and the Suez canal  English  financiers and   merchants   see  the  germs of future disturbance to the continuation of England as the financial and commercial centre.   It is this supremacy in trade  and finance that gives tbe soil and property  of England tbeir enormous value, nnd'every  interest in'the country rises or falls with that  supremacy.   By the Suez canal the route to  the Eastern'countries will be shortened at  least ten thousand miles.   A new distributor  of tbe world's products, rivalling Liverpool  and London, will spring up in the Mediterranean���������anew financial and commercial centre���������through this, shortening of the voyage to  tlie East; England must do something to  counteract all  this,  and a railway across  British North  America must be built.   Climate is unfavorable tQ the Red Sea route, for  commercial purposes, on account of tbe intense beat, while the British North American  ] route would afford as speedy transport, and  climate offers no disadvantageous conditions  to affect the quality of merchandise.   Such  are some of the reasons that present themselves in seeldmr for an explanation of ihe.  Imperial baste for Confederation complete.  However, whether Imperial interests, other  than those relating *o the colonies, have anything to do with the despatches or not. we are  at least cognizant of the fact that the Dominion  20vernment intend to shape measures for a  railway, as early as possible, and therefore  desire to finish  the work of Confederation.  Perhaps, too. the "financial condition of this  colony,  together with the earnestness of the  Dominion Cabinet, may have impelled the  Colonial Office to close accounts as soon as  convenient with British Columbia.   No matter, however, what may be tbe cause of these  despatches we are heartily glad of the change  they promise.    All are agreed that a change  is necessary, and. whether for Confederation  or not. all are unanimously of opinion, with  the War Secretary, that the governing of colonies through the Colonial Office, is a total  failure.  Six hundred and five horses were eatea in  Paris in the month of August : .  Twenty-two deaths occurred in one week  in Pennsylvania, a few weeks ago, from explosions of kerosene. ���������     ' ��������� Ay 017  About 30,000 Chinese now inPerii/h^ye  united in sending a petition to the Chinese  Emperor, through tbe UvS,\*Cobsiilai in ;Reru;  and  Pekin,  asking fbr^relief ^Theyailege;  that they bave ib work days and night, in all  weather, at scanty wages, which are doled  out to them sparingly.   They^are weak A for  want of food; they are beaten and loaded  with abuse p a eangne is put around .their  necks, and tbey ere driven off to work and  compelled to dig and plow when suffering  hunger and cold.   If they complain'their��������� sufferings are only increased;; if they work iri  shops they are unjustly accused of thieving;;  if they walk tbe streets the boys ridicule arid  abuse them.   On all sides, they are persecuted  and  driven to despair.  Steps haye  been taken to inquire into the trutfi of. their  story. yy AAA- ~A0A-7 '���������'  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

We must therefore dismiss out-  foreign relations and look in Britain, Canada,  or in British Columbia for  the  impelling  cause of this uncharacteristic haste on the  part of the Imperial government.   Perhaps  we might include the United States in the  list.   That great overland railway may have  aroused the lethargic ambition, the national  pride and honor, and even the national cupidity, of Britain to a sense of the necessity  for renewed exertions to maintain her position  as the leading  commercial  power of the  world.   So far, however, the great.. railway  of our neighbors has given but small promise  of diverting the ordinary-current of the Oriental trade, but it may have served to illustrate the correctness of piedictions and calculations made long before tbe advent of  Confederation, that the long-sought Northwest Passage, by which Britain hoped to secure the commerce of the East, would be ultimately found to consist in a railway across  ber North American   possessions.   It  may  November. A vote on Confederation will immediately be taken, and. if favorable, the  question of terms of admission discussed and  decided on, and a delegate to Ottawa appointed to confer with the Dominion government and complete the arrangements for the  admission of the colony into the Dominion.  Circumstances having completely changed, by  the imminent transfer of the Northwest territory, and the projection of overland railways,  since the last vote was taken, renders it exceedingly probable that the Council will reverse the vote of last session.

Dolvg Wpx.���������k Dominion paper savs that  the Yarmouth; Gold Mining and Quartz-  Crushing Company is doing well. In July  66 tons of quartz yielded 41 oz. 10 dwtsof  gold; iq value, about $830. Surely if quartz  yielding two-thirds of an ounce per ton is  considered sufficiently good to justify saying  that a company is doing well with it, quartz  that will yield three times that amount ought  to furnish more than the difference in value  between labor and machinery in Nova Scotia  aud Cariboo. In Nova Scotia there isaroyalty  of three per cent., which is not demanded  iiere.^ Labor is $1 25 per day, a great difference in comparison wilh labor here, but the  present high price of labor is principally  caused by the absence of steady employment  Which quartz mining will give.  nJKArCE &���������m���������Fred.

Tbe altitude is a few hundred feet  lower than William creek, and snow averages  a foot in depth during winter. We have,  however, no authentic record of the climate,  and the testimony of a few Hudson Bav-Co.  employes as to the climate at Stuarts "lake,  will be interesting: Mr. McLean speaks of tho '  climate as being very variable. '* I bave experienced at Smart's Lake; in the month of  July, every possible change of weather within  twelve hour.s, frost in tbe morning, scorching  heat at noon, then rain, bail, and snow. The  winter season is subject to.the same vicissi^ ���������  tudes, though not in so extreme a deg'reo :  some years it continues mild throughout.  These vicissitudes riiay, I think, be ascribed  to local causes���������proximity to, or distance  from, the glaciers of the Rocky Mountains,  the direction of the winds, the aspect of the  place.". Mr. Cox writes that the climate is .  neither unhealthy nor unpleasant; aud he  expresses tho opinion that the natives, if they  but'used common prudence, would undoubtedly live to an advanced age. '��������� The spring,"  adds tbis writer," commences in April, when  the wild flowers begin to bud ; and from,  l hence to the latter end of May the weather  is delightful. Iii June it rains incessantly^  with strong'southerly and easterly winds..  During the month of July and August, tbe  beat is intolerable; and in September the  fogs are so dense that it^ is quite impossible, A  to distinguish the opposite side of the river ?  any morning before ten o'clock. Colds and  rb ei i m at is ms are p re v al en t among tb e na lives  during this period : nor are our people exempt from them. In October.-the falling of  tbe leaves and occasional trost announce the'  beginning of winter/ The lakes and parts of  the rivers are frozen in November. "The  snow seldom exceeds twenty-four inches iii  depth. The mercury, in -Fahrenheit's thermometer, falls in January to 15 deg. below  0 ; but this does not continue many days."  _'.������.

China is now ordered from San Francisco by- :  overland aiid cable-telegram.: It starts froin  Liverpool, crosses.the Atlantic, jonrney.s the.  breadfh of this' continent by rail, and thea  crosses Ihe Pacific .  The New York Times regards Mrs, Sto'we's  story about Byron as now satisfactorily- disproved, audi with Lord Lindsay, attributes it  elrher to a hallucination on the part of Lady  Bymn. or to a misapprehension of her meaning by Mrs. Stowe.  The proposed (Ecumenical Council has  produced a curious movement among the  Russian clergy. They propose to get up a  counter demonstration to that preparing at  Rome, by having another council at St.  l-N'lershurg, attended by bishops of the Greek  Church, aud presided over by the Emperor.  The London Musical World says that, at a  concert lately given by the Auckland Choral  Society to the officers of the fleet, His Royal  Highness tbe Duke of Kdinburgh took part  ns 'Mirst fiddle." In the opening piece he  played with Colonel Balnea vis and the other  violinists. The Duke subsequently played in  Mozart^ ���������*'������Jupiter" and other orchestral  pieces- In all, he is said to have acquitted  himself most admirably.  Sir William Thompson, the eminent electri-  clan, announces an v important discovery 'y  touching the art of laying submarine cables.  He has found a mode by which a fault existing in the coiled part of the cable on board  ship, scareely reeo'griizabIe as an incipient  flaw, will make a sudden and decisive indication, after i(; passes out of the tfenky and before, it reaches the pulley at the suern. The  alarm will thus be given in time to stop the  cable and remedy the defect.  (  Instruction.���������Mo ns. B. DetSs desires na to  state that he intends opening Evening,Classes  for instruction in Arithmetic. French, Spanish.  English Grammar and English Composition.  He will give also private lessons in the dead  languages, ,&c, if desired. The classes will  be opened on the 15th November next, at  half-past 7 o'clock, p.m. The terms will be  $12 per month, payable in advance. Parties  desirous of going through a regular course of  lessons are requested to give him their names  before the,5th of November next, so that he  may bave time to organize the classes and  send down to Victoria for books. No application will be received after the 10th November. Mons. B. Deffis is well known in this,  colony as an efficient professor of languages.  Having had several years experience in teaching, his mode of tuition will be found easy  aud effective.
