VICTORIA LETTER, No. 5.  Victoria, V.IvAugust 26th, 1S67.  : In the happy state of flatness which now  prevails here, there is but small occasion to  / write letters. " Happy is the nation that lias  ,%o 'history," said an eminent authority. If  the saying apply to colonies, which I doubt,  we are much blessed. For since the closing  of the Legislative session, but little occurs to  'disturb the wave of our placidity.  .   EDUCATION.  ��������� Free education ! free education 1 is the popular cry still, or at least so it is represented  to be" by the newspapers ; though I ain sure  that tbe Jews, for instance, as a community,  :,dd not wish to.have tbeir children educated  "���������'.'���������free 5; or at least would be the last, I believe/  1/tpinsistmsu^  ���������"���������'^Catholics, who hove their Sisters of St. Anne,  ���������and their St. Louis College, insist on it; nor  taking class-by. class, can I find any denomin-  ';-ation, divided into religious sects, of/the public,, that, more particularly . request it.    I  ��������� %elieye it is imported here from Canada, or  /our other eastern .colonies.   I do not think  vlhat the Americans are numerous ol* interested  "enough to have a voice.in. the matter, and I  am quite certain that they are averse to the  ^discriminate*gatherings/of; the; children,;  - -which is the result.   It is a newspaper'" cry.  v How or why the Americans have it (freeedu-  o!"3oation) I do not know.   That education, instruction I suppose is the right word, should  / :be with i n/ th c reach q f. all j. is p raise wo rthy,.  /and properly a governmental action.   But  /that education shall be within reach of the  /^meanest, and that all do'*'not profit -by it,  :is a waste of power, is .defective legislation.  /SNo, to-complete it,.compulsion, must accom-  /���������/���������fany the free gift.   That a poll tax be levied  /Tor the expenses of schooling the infant mM  juvenile population, F do not complain of.  But that the mau who has a family, and lets  Shis children run about the streets, or which is"  0he satne.,thing,;keeps:.41ietn at homey!for.-the'  //most trivial cause, sometimes a self-interested  ; one, is irregular.   I want to see, hand in hand  ���������; with education gratis, a yearly or half yearly  Return to a constituted" officer, of the number  of children in a household, and of the schools  they attend ; attendance at any school to exempt  from ��������� attendance at the free school.  Absence frourall schools, to entail a fine per  head of child, equal to tbe average charge of  ' education at a private school.. And further,  I would not. if I represented the Executive,  pretend to give children who had the privilege of instruction gratis, I. would not give  them free instruction in the higher branches  of mathematics, the living foreign, or the dead  languages.    Geometry may be considered^ a  great help-to intellectual culture, and assist  to form the; reasoning powers.   But I would  cut off algebra from my programme; I would  exclude accomplishments.   People who are  to have their children become educated units  of a state free of cost to themselves, must not  look for too much.   As the duty of the state  is to see that not one, the feeblest of its mem  hers, shall die corporeally, for want of'sufffi  cienfc food to sustain the body ; so no state  can  be  expected, without  charge,  to see  that  its members  be not  mentally inane.  No state, I say, can be expected to provide  too re than the simplest diet   It would be too  much to expect- that the houseless, .the aged  and infirm, shoidd:.be��������� admitted-tb.the richest,  tbe most luxurious/-fare;/ It would: be too  inuch to expect that the youth of both sexes  should be provided' gratis with the most expensive and time-consuming education.   Further, H would be, a mental diet uselessly  spread before them, for the most part; fori  suppose that children of the Class who attend  free .schools, are not likely to be able to devote the years necessary for the complete  mastering of all these branches and accomplishments.   No, but I would, notwithstanding, have a sura at the disposal of the Superintendent pf. Education, or other proper  officer,devoted to the further education, at  the expense of the public, of such privileged  youths of both sexes, who showed special aptitude for, or had distinguished themselves, in  any particular! branch of learning ; or gave  bright promise of general ability, and possessed industry to make the most of it.   In a  word, any free education should be of the  simplest 'kind ; a public and universal tax  should meet the expense of it.   I would compel by fine, or double poll-tax on the parents,  * the attendance of all children at the free  schsol, or other schools.   Part of the public  hioney should be set aside to educate further,  free of expense to the parent* euoh child or  children as evinced special aptitude, or gave  promise of repaying the. trouble:  As for religion, in a public school, I would  I think; leave it..to the sense of responsibility:  of each individual parent, to send his or her:  child to the Sunday School, for religious instruction... I am opposed, and always have  been, to your genuine anti-sec tar iau cry ;  which means nothing but to refrain from all  religion.- But I see no help for it. Many is  the person in older countries, who for. want  of early training, knows nothing of his Bible  or religion,.but what he heard, Sabbath by  Sabbath,-from the minister ; and very slender, you may imagine, that knowledge is.  His pastor, of course, if he do his duty, may  in his home visits, impart a great deal of information, and very providentially; the way  is so plain that he;" who runneth may read."  People here, at least, seem to want to have it  /ffiimide^e^  tun ate, as may be the decision, one can .but  supplement it or otherwise. .This theme is  almost endless, but while I hope I have not  repeated much that I have'said formerly, I  have been obliged to revert to the matter, as  there has been a public meeting here on the  subject, necessitated; by the threatened dying  out of the system, owing greatly, to the apathy  of the government. His Excellency, seemed  in the matter to wish to carry out good views  of his own,';rather than as they think, better  views of tho people.     .' ��������� '���������'-"'���������  The Collegiate school, having reduced its  fees from $5 upwards, to $2 50,'no extras, is  bringing about cheap, if not popular. education. ��������� .'. . ������������������: :���������-; ���������-.:.'.

The expedition, however proved what anyone in his  sober senses must Lave predicted, a signal  failure.   These misguided young men were  overtaken by the Italian troops, when a number of them were captured and the remainder  completely dispersed.   The Italian, government has ordered that the leaders of the band  are to be taken to Florence, the Italian capital, and the other prisoners are to be sent to  the prisons of Arezzo and Sienna.   The desire  to make the Italian kingdom whatit ought,  and will ultimately be, when Rome is the capital, is most natural and praiseworthy in  every true Italian ; and the ardent wish of  all the law-abiding, citizens of that beautiful  country, is to so strengthen and consolidate  the government, that this great object may  be attained at tbe - earliest possible moment.  But these thoughtless and misguided men are  by their lawless freaks, enfeebling and embarrassing the government, and postponing  the very end which they pretend to desiro so  much.   We are inclined to look upon the  young men who formed the party, as the victims < of revolutionary propagandists^    For  we know that every nation is infested with a  set of reckless.men who, under the specious  guise of patriotism, or some other superficially good motive, band themselves together  Jrfe4'-4be^>urpose;; of plunder, which, usually terminates in /the ruin of -imany weak minded  people, who: have been led into the; snare  through the; influence/of designing and' evil  disposed leaders.    If this be true, in the present instance, we trust/that these leaders may  1>e singled out, and receive that punishment  which their .reckless;, temerity so .justly deserves. ���������.������������������-���������'���������:'y?y..'- -,.'"'  :/;    ./.���������'��������� :.���������"',  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

That Garibaldi, by his able mana-  : gement of the raw troops under his command,  has made for himself a lasting name,- no. one  will deny ; .biitifit had not "been for. tbe opportune support-afforded him-by-his firm  ally Cavomyit is well known his: expeditions  would not have terminated so successfully.  Cavour is no more, and Garibaldi^ friends  are to be found among those who have little  or no.political influence ; thus any movement  attempted by bis party must inevitably result  in failure, as they would be at once repressed  by the Italian government, now in a position  with regard.to surrounding nations that makes  a due respect for treaties necessary. To those  who are carried away by the sophistry usually indulged  in by revolutionary clubs, all  reasoning is out of the question : and nothing  but the force at the disposal of a strong government is capable of restraining  these restless spirits.   Happily for the reputation of  Garibaldi, the late insane attempt at invasion  of the Papal States is in no way attributable  to him.   IIis consciousness of tbe determination on the part of tbe Italian government to  prevent any revolutionary movement on tbe  Papal dominions, deter red him from any  advance in that direction, as he bad  previously  decided upon.   Thus, strange as it may ap*-  pear, the little band that made the attempt  was wholly composed of young men of the  moderate party, heretofore marked for its indisposition to follow the  extreme -ideas of  Garibaldi.   It seems that about two bnadred  armed youths made an attempt to  crosg tbe  Roman frontier, with tbe object of reaching  viterbo, where it was proposed to proclaim  a provisional   government  and   so   form" a  nucleus wheuce to make a more  formidable  //;Not .

New Coal Depot for English Sjieamers.  ���������The island of Opara, in the Pacific ocean,  has been selected as a coaling depot for the  New Zealand and Australian line of steamships. Opara island lies in about 27:20 sou tli  latitude, and 147 degrees west longitude, and  is about ten days' steam from Wellington.  Its circumference is about sixteen miles. The  island lies high, the scenery is pretty, and excellent water can be obtained. One side is  formed of a valuable petroleum slate, called  'coal' by the natives. The native population  consisting of about 1,500 persons, arc. of a  friendly disposition, and were delighted at  the Kaikoura's visit. Although the establishment of a coaling statiou on the island is important, as being likely to insure more punctuality in the delivery of the mails, it will  also be of benefit to Australia and New Zealand by opening up. the South Sea trade,  which is yet in its infancy. Opara is only  some 050 miles distant from Tahiti, and the  produce of a largo number of the most important of the islands, much of which, from  its perishable nature, requires quick transportation, can be brought to the island, and  thence conveyed by the Panama steamers to  Australia and New Zealand. The Sandwich  islands are three thousand miles distant from  Opara.
