So effectually have the public  b,eoa;drugged with such mixtures that the true properties have been lost sight of, and many prefer a, black  ind tihick infusion to a drink rich in spirit and aroma.  General as is the use.of.Coffee, it is little known that  In condensing the vapors extracted from the berry in  roasting, a liquor is obtained, of.-,the, most nauseous  taste; andibfj a scent the most unbearable.- Under sucb  circumstances it is evidently import*)nt:)that all,the  KasoB1 and" flttids'extracted by Toasting should be carried off as quickly as possible, in order to prevent tbeir  Returning again'to the Coffee, which is;the case in, the  . confl hed cylinder. ,Tb is' object; is. ���������ad m i rab ly. accom-  blished by the new and patent*uConical Ctfffoe Roaster"  as used by FELL & CO., yictoria,; in whicb the berry  fs air'ecUy expofied to tlie radiated heat, and the vapor  eit^a'ctedxarried off instantaneously.

Be this^as it may, Mr. Wallace, of the Yale 'Tribune;''; is the candidate  for the Yale district. ' The political principles  he enunciates in his address are very liberal  indeed, and if he is able to carry them^ out  against the Government opposition which will  be brought to bear on all popular, measures;  he will do much for the welfare of tlie colony.  We are  glad  to notice that he: does  not  overlook the mining interests and other important questions' that have been agitating the  public mind for sometime past; his political  views generally are closely allied with those  of the people of this district and our member  will find in him an active colleague with whom  to co-operate in an.endeavour.to bring about  a"changein"the adniinistration^of��������� --'affairs hi")  this colony.  ������������������������������������ ���������>*  NEW ADVERTISIMN^  -=";     Eli EC TION.

. The prospecting party who lately started up
the Lake had returned to Cedar creek, but gave
no defin ite in formatio n as t to the results 0 f
tbeir explorations, but the fact of their pur-;
chasing five weeks' provisions, a whip-saw,
nails, <fco., and returning again, is evident
���proof thai they had found some prospects.
The party consists of 6 men,1 among whom is
Capt. Mitchell, who gave;the party the use of
one of his b0ats. As far as can be ascertain-
cd, the distance from Cedar creek, to. the scene
of their operations is about 100 miles. Some
of the party intimated their intention of returning soon, when we may be enabled to
fratber more particulars about their ptbspects,-
&c. The party consists of Capt. Mitchell, Geo.
Ferguson, Patrick Baxter, John Sayyers, Alex.
