THE WANING SEASON.  The il"open season" in Cariboo Is near to  lid end, and there is my small cause for con  graktlailon upon what has been done in mining since its inception.   Therehasbeon.no  lack of enterprise jwfl energy, but the. waning  season is pregnant with the same sparse results as that of last year. .A great,depth ol  snow at the beginning of the season encouraged  hopes of a plentiful, supply ot water,  but only to demonstrate more clearly than  ever the necessity for artificial means of obtaining a continuous supply of water.   Ibe  works by which William creek could obtain  the boon would probably be found too great  l:     ... i u��������������������������� nrt oftamrit: hnfi  works embracing, a- large, area /of mining  ground.   All the creeks, valleys and hills on  the north side of, the Divide would receive  the benefit of the work.   A survey, then, for  this creek alone would serve for half of the  best portion Of the milling section of the,dis-:  trict.   The.knowledge of the gold deposits is  circumscribed in proportion to the naturally  available supplies of water, -. First'catch your  hare before you cook it is an axiom* which in  its.applicationto gold mining, should be interpreted so that water shall be understood  aB the hare// Water is the first consideration  in hun linj* for gold.  . Wtieh bron ght to a  point high enough to command the'lulls there^  is no limit to the hank   Swift river, it is said,  could be turned to tbe head of William creek,  and could be made tc serve all the purposes  herein indicated.   Now, governments build  roads,bridges, and undertake yarious'kihds  of works calculated to en courage aud promote industry, and such public enterprises  while benefitting thp. people, generally put  money into tbe public'purse.   There is no  lack- of precedent to justify asking" go ver ri-  ment to determine  whether the waters of  Swift river can be made available for mining  purposes, over the vast extent of auriferous  ground stretching on a lower grade on either  side and from the upper part of this creek.  It would not be a boon to a few, but as likely  to lead to such 'widespread advantages as  above alluded to it irAxzk;h e considered as a1  ^peeBsi0Q-lia\^{fg-i^ its object the common  weal of the district and colony.   Where pri;  vale enterprise is too restricted by lack of  population to undertake works of general  consequence in the benefits to be derived, it  is a wise policy on the part of government to  encourage the initial steps.   In agricultural,  commercial and manufacturing interest, gov-'  eminent assistance is frequently deemed advisable, and as mining in this colony constitutes their main source of prosperity, why  not endeavor to give greater vitality to tbe  latter industry and thereby strengthen the  life of the whole?  will save at least S 130,000 per annum, to ,,the,  Colony, whereas with the continuation of the  existing tariff that amount arid more would  ye airly, slip into the Dominion treasu ry. i n su p -  port of, a false political plea, called'pro lee- .������&  tion',; whereas there is nothing-' to protect, and Sg  that in order/to saiye riot only the, sum of  $130,000 to tlie colony,,but also that it .will  serve' as a preventive/ to any; unnecessary  polifical. agitation hereafter.   ; , -  / Clause 14;of'^Ternte/s-^f.Tliet"'.

Iu respect to inter-oceanic communication ���������  by rail, this great enterprise has alwaijs found  in mo one of its earliest and most faithful ad-,  vocates; and as the.

Doubtless similar reasons  will account.for the extraordinary consumption of like articles in this colony, tor, in  spite of continual croaking, there is probably  no country in which individual well-being ts  bo general as in British Columbia.   Having,  then, paid for the promised luxury of telegraphic communication, in ������.luxurious manner, and without a growl, no wouder the people are indignant at the government for the  slow progress making to spread the electrical  repast before them.   Unless we are misinformed, and we have no reason to believe we  are, the line will not be put into working order  to  this creek   until  about this  time  next year.   The repairing party consists of  six men only, and are progressing at the rate  of about two miles per day.   Last week they  bad not reached Ly tfcon, and if no quicker  advance be rnixda, J-hati two miles per day, it  will require 175 days'after getting to Lytton  to repair the line to William creek.   Instead  of one there ought to be three or four parties  working.   The  old  excuse���������there  are  no  funds on hand���������can scarcely be applicable  to this matter, for as we have endeavored to  show, although perhaps for want of available  data we have to assume, it is evident that the  means for the completion of the work before,  winter sets in have been already collected.  A month from now the work wjil probably  be stopped by winter, and indeed it seems  as if there was no intention to complete it  ���������this year.   We need not say anything about  the advautages ot telegraphic communication  ���������they are generally well understood and  appreciated���������but in Cariboo, where we have  mail communication only twice a month for  six mouths of the year, ihe telegraph would  prove an inestimable boon.  lemen who for themselves ttuutuvov.^^.  in sp delicately confer a substantial favor.  1 amy Gentlemen,  Your bbdt. and obliged, -  THOS.

New York, Sept. 14���The World's London
special pays there was an interview this afternoon between Granville and Thiers at^ the
Kmbassy. The former was noncommittal,
and the latter earnest but dignified. Thiers
saicl France desires peace, but she will accept
none but honorable terms. Granville replied: " I do not see how England can interfere, but 1 think I may say that, while preserving a strict neutrality, England will pre
sent to Prussia any propositions ohered by
France and act the part of a sincere friend.
It cannot, however, be expected that England
will join any power in attempting a threat to
I'rnssia, nor can England even positively
promise to urge upon Prussia the acceptance
of any olfer which France may be disposed
to make to her. Thiers firmly but courteously
said upon that he saw nothing to be looked
for from England in the matter, and that to
negotiate for mediation by continental Power? with hope of England's co-operation must
probably be siiffeied to fall through.
After making public late in the afternoon
the above interview, an impromptu meeting
was called aud a great crowd assembled in
Trafalgar Square. Among the many speakers were Ogdcn and Justin McCarthy, The
Government was denounced in the bitterest
and most unmeasured.terms for its course towards the French Republic. The Cabinet
was declared to be a Cabinet of treason to
human rights and tho peace of Europe.^ The
example of America was invoked amid tremendous cheers from tbe multitude. Immense applause followed tbe BeuUoicnt" That
if the Hgbt of the people to establish a Republic in France .was to be denied H would become the duty of the people to establish a
Republic in England.^
