 ((:  Vol. 4.  Barkerville, Williams Creek, & 5, 186V.  Wo. 36.  1  ,       GORILLAS.  ,t Mons. DuChaillu, the great African traveller, who-published, a few years ago, an interesting work of his /ravels, containing many  excellent eketches of African character, and  . Amusing incidents connected with his explorations, thus describes a young gorilla which  he captured, with the intention of sending  him to^Eogiand, to^ convince the sceptical of  the existence df this animal, but who died on  the passage thither :���������  During the few days Tom was in my possession, he remained, like all the:others of his  npeoies that I had seen, utterly untrac table.  The food that was offered to him he would  come and snatch from the hand, and then bolt  . ..with.it to'the length o'f his tether.' If Hooked  'at him, he would make a feint of darting at  me, and in giving bim water, I had to push  the bowl towards him witb a stick, for fear of  his biting me. When hevwas angry, I saw  ���������-���������bim-'&fteh- beat- the-grduhd ancHrisr legs "with"  ��������� his fist3, thus showing-a similar habit to that  of the adult gorillas, which I described aa  beating ;their .breasts with.their fists when  confronting an enemy. Before laying down  to rest he used to pack" his straw very carefully, as a ibeiL to lie on. Tom used to wake  me in the night by screaming suddenly, and  in the: morning I more than once detected  him in the attempt to strangle himself with  fcis.cbain, no' doubt, thro xigh rage at being  ��������� kept prisoner.   He used to twist the chain  ��������� round and round the post to which it wasat>,  tached, until it became quite short, and then  press, with his feet the lower part of the post,  until he had/nearly done the business.  The following is his description of their  xuo'de of feeding.:��������� -.  I was going quietly along, when I heard, in  the grove --q&p..laa&i&-trees- towards which I  was walking, a great crashing noise like the  .breaking of trees. V.I immediately hid myself  , behind a: bush, and was Vsopu gratified wi th  the sight-of a';. female; gorilla! ; but; before I  had. time-to ��������� no tice-i.ts-movements, 'a~'������econd  "and third emerged from the masses of colossal foliage ;; at length ho less than' four came  into view.   They were all busily engaged in  teariug down; the larger trees.   One of the  females had a young, one following her.' I  had an excellent opportunity of watching the  moVements of the impish-looking band.   The  shaggy hides, the protuberant abdomens, the  hideous features of these strange creatures,  whose forms so nearly resemble man, made  "up a picture like a vision in some morbid  dream,     in .destroying  a   tree,   they  first  grasped the base of the stem with one of their  feet, and then with their powerful arms pulled  it down, a matter of not much difficulty with  so loosely-formed a stem as that of the plantain.   They then set-upon the juicy heart of  the tree at the bases of the leaves, and devoured it with, great voracity.   While eating  .. they, made a kind of clucking noise, expressive of contentment. ' Many trees they destroyed apparently out of pure mischief, ftow  and then they stood 6til I and looked around.  .Once.or twice they seemed ob the point of  starting off in alarm, but recovered themselves  and continued their work.   Gradually they  got nearer to the edge of the dark forest, and  finally   disappeared.- I  was  So   intent   on  watching,>that I ��������� let go. the last chance of  shooting one, almost before I became aware  of it. -     ���������  The next day I went again with Odanga to  the same spot. I had no expectation of seeing gorillas in the same plantation, and was  carrying a Iigbt.shot gun. haying given my  heavy dCuble-barrclied rifle to the boy to  carry. The plantation extended over two  hills, with a deep hollow between, planted  with sugar cane. Before I had crossed the  hollow, I saw on the opposite slope a monstrous gorilla, standing erect, and looking directly towards mo. Without turning my face  I beckoned to the boy to bring me my rifle,  but no rifle came���������the little, coward had  ��������� bolted, and I lost my chance. The huge  beast stared at me for about tV?o minutes, and  then, without muttering any cry, moved off to  tbe shade of the forest, running nimbly on  bis hands arid feet.  He describes the death of one of these creatures in these words:��������� ' '  The wounded female died in the course of  the next day ; her moanings were more fre-  fytient in the morning, and they gradually  became weaker as her life ebbed out. Her  death was like that ofahuman.being, arid  afflicted, tsxe. more than I could have thought  possible: Her child, clung to her to the last,  fead tried to obtain milk from her breast after  fche was dead. I photographed them both  when the young one was resting in its dead  mother's lap. I kept the young one alive for  three days after it3 mother's Seath., It  moaned at night most jpiteously. I fed it on  goat's milk, for it was tbo young to eat berries. It died tbe fourth day, having taken an I  unconquerable dislike to the milk. It had, I  think, begun to know'me a little. As to the  male, I made at least a dozen attempts to photograph the irascible little demon, but all in  vain. The pointing of the camera, towards  him threw him into a������ perfect rage, and I was  almost provoked to give him a 'sound thrashing. 'The day after, however, I succeeded  with him, taking two views, not very perfect,  but sufficient for my object.   ���������  ���������A mttle man in the west of Maryland  rushed to the Potomac river, last summer,  swearing that he would drown himself. When  he had waded in to the dep,th_pfhis^^is^.his  wife/ who 'Had followed hitn", seized him by  the hair, and then, as a spectator describes it:  " She led him back .until she had reached a  place where the water was about two feet  deep,, where, she pulled him oyer backward,  sousing, his head under, and then .pulled bis  head up again, loudly exclaiming,-^.  * "Drown yourself, (down he- went) leaving  me to keep the. children; (another plunge ;)  get drunk ! (another souse,) and start for the  river, (another dip). Better use the water inr  stead of ruin \ (another dip, and a shake of  his head). I'll learn you to leave me a  widow'-!" ;yV  After sousing him to her heart's content,  she led him out, a wetter if not a wiser man,  aiid escorting him to the house, shut the door.

Oliver Urquhart and his two partners,  who have been out prospecting for several  months past, returned on Monday evening,  and reported the discovery of a creek in  which they found gold in paying quantities.  The creek has been named Mustang creek,  and is situated  about 25 miles to the nortb-  West of Williams creek and four miles to the  north west of Sugar creek; it is about one and  V a half miles in  length and empties into a  y large creek' ��������� which was also named by' the  y'party Beaver creek, from the great number  /of beaver that abound in that vicinity.    Urquhart and his party have located and record-  ��������� ed a discovery claim, about 500 feet from the  mouth ol'thecreek, .and have prospected it  "sufficiently well to know that they can make  from $12'to $20 a day to tho hand, and even  more if there was a plentiful supply of water.  The ground is not over 8 feet in depth, so far  'as they have found, and the pay appears to  be eonfihed chiefly to ihe gravel,. near the  ,   bed rock, although there is a strata of top  gravel that yields a fair prospect.   The bed  rock is a hard, blue slate, intermixed with  small quartz  veins, and resembles in  ap-  "*1������piyeaTauee the* mckon'th^creelcr- Wa were  -shown by Mr. Urquhart about 15 ounces of  ���������the dust, which appears coarse and well washed.   Its quality is much about tbo same as  ; that Of the gold found on Sugar creek.  There  ;are a number of other creeks and gulches in  ythe vicinity that look equally as * well as. the  one referred to, which it Is the opinion of our  ���������informant, who prospected some of them, will  ���������pay well.    These will no doubt receive a  thorough   prospecting from the number of  ^miners who have been attracted there within  ythe last two days, by the flattering prospects  -Obtained in that quarter.   Mr. Urquhart and  ��������� party returned 3'esterday'; with a stock of provisions, and will commence sawing; lumber.  land prepare to -take advantage of the fall  yrains.     yy   ���������    ������������������-   ���������  ��������� i  Murder.���������A report reached Quesnelmouth  ���������on Slonday, that a Frenchman who resided  recently at Chimney creek, had been found  murdered on the Hat creek trail, about two  ���������miles from McLean's ranch on the Bonaparte.  .: The discovery was made by one of McLean's  ysons, who on observing'.an Indian riding a  yhorse which he knew belonged to the.- murdered man, put certain questions to the Indian as to thc.irianncr of his coming into possession of the animal, and on receiving eva-  '-y el ve and unsatisfactory answers,'suspected  s om e fo 111 ��������� p lay, an d a 10 n( e ar rested him. On  making diligeut search, the body of the man  : was afterwards found as before .stated.   Information was instantly sent to tlie constable  at the Junction, who conveyed the prisoner to  Lillooet without delay.   It appears that tbe  murdered man, while"on his way to Lillooet  on business, was met by three Indians, who  "borehim air old grudge, and,killed hiin in  revenge.    No trace of the other two murderers could be found up to last accounts.  ��������� We understand that Joe Eden is undergoing the heaviest kind of training, at Quesnelmouth. His trainers; George Fairbrother and  Jim Boland, have their hands full in looking  after him. He is very much reduced in  weight since he left here, having lost about  I81bs., but for all that, he often distances his  ���������trainers coming home after a ten mile run in  the morning. In the afternoon Joe divides  his attentiou between bis pets, as he calls the  gloves, the pullies, <fcc, and venting his spleen  by unmercifully pounding a 2001b. sand bag,  which he sometimes imagines to be Wilson,  by giving it an extra punch by way of retaliation for the hard work he undergoes,  Nothing further has been heard from the  seat of government relative to the settlement  of the Grouse creek difficulty. At last accounts, his Excellency and staff had gone to  Victoria, where he intends remaining for ten  days. It is to be hoped that this much vexed  question will be settled before the mining  season closos. so that ground which is known  to be rich may be made available for the good  of the community, and not locked up as has  been the prevailing custom for the past three  years, at the very best portion of the mining  sea,$on..

The shipments  thus far are largely in excess of those of any  previous year���������a,fact which may be accepted  as incontrovertible evidence that the yield of  gold 13 greater and the prosperity of the balding community more general than ever before.���������B. Colonist.  The Taftvale Co., in Sfcoufrs gulch, vsrashfed|  Mr. L. Hahnett's Lecture.���������According to  announcement, this gentleman delivered his  lecture on Sunday afternoon. Of the address  itself we need only say that it gave entire satisfaction. It was delivered in a clear, perspicuous, and philosophical manner, and reflected credit on the lecturer for the intimate,  knowledge he appeared to possess of tbe general features of the country, acquired during  bis short stay here. No one can doubt but  Mr; Harnett will be of the greatest utility to  tbis country when he returns to California ;  and it is with pleasure, shared we believe in  common by all, that we baud him over to our  people below, with a thorough endorsement  of his intelligence and industry.  . The introduction of the lecture was confined  to a general comparison of British Columbia  and California, wherein it was shown that in  many respects, so far as the facilities of mining went, the one was quite equal; if not superior to the other, with the same amount.of  capital and labor. In this part of the address  the quartz question was thoroughly discussed.  Of the existence of paying ledges iu this  country, there could be no doubt, but the  time,had not arrived to'work them successfully, owing to the great disparity between  labor and capital. The general average of  the California quartz rock was shown to yield  only from $15 to S20 a ton ; and the country  had been injured severely for years,.simply  because the business had been taken up too  soon. Even up to 1800, a man in California  could get no aid from capitalists to open his  rai ne^so ���������-tho-roughl-y-ted-the:busiiicss' -failed  in a general way, up to that time ; but now  that labor aud capital, were better regulated,  claims that bad been lying worthless for years  were selling readily, from $50,000 and upwards. In the present condition of this country, it would be ruinous to have a similar.  failure. Better far to develop the..ledges on  Island Mountain/ Lowhee and^Blaok Bear  creeks ��������� slowly, and bring them into notice  only when thoroughly tested. San Francisco  has expended, it is supposed^ over $3,000,000.  and New York nearly $100,000,000, in Idaho.  Montana, etc.,without result; and how, in  both places, rock that will pay eight or ten  dollars a ton, within a day's ride of Stockton  or Sacramento, if easily got.at. is worth more  in the. estimation of capitalists, than*, all the  boasted richness of these distant and expensive territories. The same argument held  good in this colony, and it would be;wisdom  to admit it at once.  The lecturer then turned to our auriferous  diggings, and enforced his previous position  by proving that in British Columbia there  were diggings developed and undeveloped,  rich and extensive enough to. last for ten  years to come. Ail that was wanted to diffuse a general prosperity, was an improved  method of. mining ; in. fact, the. adoption of  the great system, of hydraulicing and draining.  The regularity and extent of our auriferous  lodes, was shown by Grouse creek and Stouts  gulch, which after years ot abandonment and  delay, were now paying enormously, because  drainage had made labor at last successful.  A large reservoir built at the head of each  stream would give abundance of water, at  little cost, for'efficient hydraulic power, and  more than double the pay would then be obtained. Lowhee, where claims are paying  well on a second and third washing, Canadian, Cedar. Black Bear, Musquito, and other  creeks recently developed, were instanced, to  prove this great truth, in a striking manner.  which carried conviction. Wiiliams creek,  hitherto the mainstay of the country, was then  reviewed. If Ground Hog lake, the present  water source, was dammed to a height of fifty  feet, which like lakes in California, could  easily be done at a comparatively trifling  cost, the whole ereek could be put under hydraulic power, and pay as well as it did in  former years. But where was ��������� the drainage ?  The lecturer discussed the plan of tapping  Jack-of-Clubs lake, which could be easily  drained forty or fifty feet, and thence a flume  drain to the meadows, opening good diggings  all the way, at a cost of probably not ,ihore  than $30,000..   If tbis sum sounded largo, and  could get into diggings. paying from 50 to  IGOOoz. a week, the fascination would blind  cotnihon sense, and :endless placers capable  of yielding good pay would be sacrificed for  a chance at these favored spots. The mining  history of California was repeated here. Nevertheless from* the rocker, the primitive  method, we Would be forced by degrees  through the gradation of systems to the hydraulic pipe, and then, as in California, would  the wonderful'mineral resources of this colony be knowu ;its prosperity.be made general and permanent. Much mining information of a varied character wa3 given in addition to all this,.which of course, we. cannot  follow ; and the lecturer.turned to the agricultural resources of the colony, which were  marvelous." The confederation scheme which  would bring capital and population enough  to develop all branches of industry ;, the desirable union of Eiiglish judgment and American enterprise, which would conquer,all  difficulties in time, and build up conjointly  oh this coast a nation eventually that weald  not only astonish but control the world, and  contrihute immensely to .the intelligence, happiness and liberty 61' mankind. ' .'��������� The lecture  iaisted an hour and a half and was listened to  with wrapt attention to the last. It must be  gratifying to Mr. Harnett to: know that he  leaves us with the admiration and good wishes  of all classes, so far as we have heard, an expression ������f.opinion upon his merits and actions.

Looking at the present expense of working  many of the leading claims, it could not for  a moment be doubted that the investment for  these great undertakings would be soon saved.  Drifting was a slow and coetly.m6.de. of working, while it was an admitted axiom in mining that the best of drifters always necessarily leave a third of the gold behind them.
