"-  in a recent debate in the Spanish Cortes,  Senior Rios Rosas spoke for over an hour defending monarchical institutions. ll He (Senior  Rosas) was very severe with the Republic Of  the United States..', He said half.of it was  outside the law. All the States of the South  were held under thei sword of'military government. Individual rights were all con-  founded. There: was no liber.ty.;. It was die-  tatiou���������sword dictation. The government of  the half of the States -bad-characters of in-  iquitous tyranny, for the -.interests of the conquered countries were sacrificed to the egotism of the North. Tbey enslaved the whites  to give liberty to the blacks. This slavery  would he prolonged years and years, for the  Federal legality arid, the autonomy of tbe  $ tales were" com pletel y ntiotisbed. Was that  *he sort of Constitution tbey. wished to give  to their country?   [No!  no! and great applause.]"  By the recent labor strikes in tho Pennsylvania coal mines about 30,000*. miners, and  probably 20,000 otiter persons were thrown  out of employment.' The most curious eir-  cumstauce in. connection with these strikes is  the discovery of the fact that the owners of  the mines themselves desired the strike .with  the object of advancing, ihe price of coalJ  The:mine owners gauge the market, form a  combination to keep up prices, and then contrive to get the miners to strike." By this  shrewd process coal becomes worth-nearly  double its value, arid the mine-owners reap a  splendid* income without any expense while  the coal lasts. Meanwhile- the poor miners'  become destitute and arecompelled to go to.  work at low wages, when, after'a surplus of  coal has been produced, the same shrewd  game is played over again.

A correspondent calls attention to Light-  ���������niiofc creek, and-the enterprise and energy  Splayed there by a few miners who have  succeeded' in the most dangerous aud difficult  ��������� work or penetrating to the bottom of that  creek, a task which has been frequently and  vainly altemped. Coming from a practical  miner, not'connected with the subjects of his  remarks in their enterprise, the writer's comments and eulogies are peculiarly appropriate.   They go far to contradict the assertion  ��������� frequently ���������-heard that there is no energy or  enterprise in this country." The stigma cannot fairly be placed upon Cariboo. Although capital is scarce here, yet there is an  immense amount of that non-metallic capital  -which is. thc base of all wealth���������muscle and  .'.indomitable.,pluck.   .These'....qualities   will  "eventually  create   the .capital requisite to.  Jimdertake.the great enterprises suggested ,by  - the. immense;resources of Cariboo, but which  .asyct/fdr thVwant of surplus capital, are  only ia contemplation. - The ylototy  over  Lightning creek will lead to,the:conquest of  yibe m^dOw^yWithVi'.^^Incre.isedy^.k'iiowT  ledge^ and skill acquired id;mining operations  telligently directed wili notTconfront.-..  r ;  "Our mines," says our* correspondent, "are  ' yet in their infancy."- The operations this year  substantiate the assertion. /Although" Cariboo has been crippled by fire and drought  during the past two years, yet  enough  has  been   done   in  that period to show that a  cheerful future is before us.   The yield of  gold has not perhaps  been increased, and  :, indeed it wo did have been surprising if it  . had,^uU-circumstances bdn what  .has be^en done this season adds to our faith as  . to. what can cad be done.  XyA J>rief Review", sho ws, that --'the' extent x and  richness pHthe'mines  ^ith the opinion in respect of Jheni^ ������������������Conklin  haustod of its; treasures/ has gwen' another  precious field, which \Viil profitably engage  -y:- laborfbr years to cpme.   The discovery of a  g61^-j>earing ��������� channel  at the ^headf of, this  ���������- gtilcli rindicates   the;'increased:;] knowledge  /Awhich has been gained, as bur correspondent  says.hy������������������"��������� many valuable lessons."   Nothing  yin the shape of a scientific, theory 'has  yet  ; come into practical use t. for any of the  alluvial-goldmines of the world, but "gold  ." is where you find it" is still the only thing  'that can be said of the precious metal with  '���������;.  unerring truth.   It was a theory based on  this accepted axiom which led the miner to  the gold deposits at the head   of  Conklin  gulcb,   and   also to  the new discovery on  .'   Lightning creek.   Looking further afield wc    find-.new evidences of the extent of our gold  .   deposits.   Harvey creek, Antler creek and  .ICeilMey creek were all supposed to have  been stripped of their treasures, but with the  increased knowledge-: and skill which has  been brought into activity, it appears that  - mining is yet in its infancy even in those old  localities. To bottom Antler creek has  almost been as difficult a task as that eulo-  ��������� gized by our correspondent in reference to  Lightning creek. It has been done, however, aad with successful results. Harvey  creek, which had never been fairly tested  with the ingenious labor and perseverance  giyen to Lightning creek, now promises to  give ample returns.   The same may be said  of Keithley creek.. . y   ,r ',  Grouse, Canadian and Ilardscrabble creeks  are being prospected by running immense  tunnels, and a new field for enterprise  will be opened on the completion of the Ballarat drain, at the lower part of William  creek, where the want of drainage has hitherto prevented the successful wovlriog of the  ground. Two long and expensive tunnels  are being put into the upper part of Lowhee  creek, and prospects already found favor the  belief that the'deep ground there is rich, with  gold. A very long tunnel is also being run  under Dragon creek. ,���������   ......;���������  Although there has been no addition "this  year to the list of gold-bearing creeks, yet  the discoveiies in old ones, where ^o'^dUft  covery was looked for, are equivalent to .an  extension of the area of our gold-fields ���������!;������$  in* one respect those discoveries are extremely encouraging, as showing the extent  of the gold deposits and the permanency'-of;  themining interest of the colony.  The greatest impediment to; the develop-;'  merit of the mines is the. lack of ready-roade  machinery and tliC abs0ace of s.team eng.inftSr  It is surprising what an immense amounts of  work requiring engineering skiM has;; been;  done and is doing in Cariboo, and witf!;jjp^  further auxiliary means than the axe, .hammer, saw, and pick and shovel. The^e-are  kept-going,. too, without the assistant of  outside . capital. ��������� The pecuniaryVmeans:,are  furnished by the mines. i/i;. Zy  A new feature is growing on the face/of  Cariboo. Quartz mining is coming^into;  favorablo notice. The little movement fctiat  has taken place with regard to quartz goes  far toi confirm the truth of the oft-repeated  assertion that if we had but one quartz-mill in  the country, quartz mining would sopS become an important industry; A prover^ dbout  cooking says, "first catch your hare^lbre  you prepare to cook it.?' \Vith: qtiartzjgbow^  tlvpr. it. is different. There are plenty of gold  seeing their way clear to any way of;extracting the gold from the ore, have takenylittlf  or no interest in quartz. When, however^  the mill that has been ordered sh all have arrived a different feeling anent quartz will  soon become manifest. Indeed, as sooiias it  was decided that a mill would be available;  for.testing quartz reefs, a search for: qiiartz  commenced.  ; Al together, there are no reaso ns for a Respondent yiew.of our prospects, so far as the  mines are concerned. If we had" only 'the  faciiities for' recruiting dur popiilation, Cariboo would soon aasume alivelter aspect than  ever. .Overland communication, alone will  give us those facilities; ....

Another  point  raised was that a new  charter had  been  granted, to which the Barker co. were not  parties, and- further, that their foreman, Mr.  Christie, bad been denied.the right, of voting  or interfering iri the affairs of the Drain eo,;  that under any circumstances,, oven if they  were par ta ere iu the Drain co., tbey might  participate in the profit without having anything  to^ do witU losses as amongst themselves, if it were so agreed as in the present  instance ; that the 7J interests were evidently  given to allow the Barker cd. right of en-  trythrough the drain, with a view to protect  their own interest.

Ross.   Ross', experience is a hard-earned one. . Ilia reverses  may be called legion, but they only made  him the more determined to gain his object.  He was one of the victims of the maid that  "Sawney JJ vainly wooed���������the Ayrshire Lass.  Nothing daunted, he commenced operations  againVm Toe-Jam Flat, and was drowned out:  still he persevered and ran a tunnel into the  hill,.at the foot of Amador c^eek, and was  drowned out again.   Adam'sEnthusiasm for  Lightning partook something of the nature of  monomanianism, and each failure was only  an incentive to him to try again.   His last  attempt, which has been crowned with deserving success, was commenced at the time  of the discovery on Dunbar flat.  Ridiculed  by many, laughed at by others, pitied by  some, but encouraged by a few friends, Ross  took to the creek while everyone else located  on the hilbide.  inight. eventuate, in any towri;, under the sam0  atinbspheric conditions,; j)ut/no sickness;,of. a  'fatal" character ever visits Barkerville.
