What  Is generallythe end of .the fashionable season  in the metropolis,, is,, in this exceptional year,  decidedly the most1 engrossing part. . On the  evening; of the sixth of July, the Pasha of  Egypt reached London, and on the 12th, the  ���������Sultanj and ia; round of fetes to entertain these  people taxes the .energy, under a 'broiling  ���������July sun, of sovereign, court, aristocracy and  .people. .

He is a;great; amateur of mechanism and instruments of fabrication. When he  was a: young ��������� man, under the name of Aziz-  Effehdi,lhe took great delight-in steering with  his own hand, in the Bosphorus, the steamer  well known in the east, which.was given him  by1 the Emperor,his brother.y This;packet,'  with two whUe.funnels, served for many, years  as the principal amusement of the hereditary.  prince.; He was also accustomed 'to occupy  himself in a special manner-witti agriculture ;  and the farms (tchifflcks), pf Prince Aziz were  noted in: the Gult of.Ismith and on the ��������� coast  of Anatolia for. their .exceptional management and cultivation on. the European;system  In Paris, though, Ytho.

The Sultan much marvelled at .the vision^ and no doubt before  long we shall.bear of a' similar wonder being  built in one of his gardehs.  The prices of living are coming down.  There ar;e in Paris several comfortable hotels  which give the traveler a bedroom, breakfast  and dinner, at froni. 10s. to I2s. per day.  Bedrooms may be obtained for A fr., 5fry, and  6fr. a night. A breakfast may be had in  many of the establishments of the Palais Royal for Iff. 50c, including fresh meat, half a  bottle of wine, and. bread. These establishments charge 2f. 50c, for such a dinner as  cannot be had in London for double that  price,;as, reigards variety. There Yare:ma5ny|  places where those seeking economy can dine  moderately for Ifr, 25c., or Is. The exhibition has an establishment called tbe Omnibus  Dining. Rodtas, where you can-have a-decent  meal, at this price.  :y/--  cently worked; deposits is that of Vagnas, in  Ardeche^ which has been carefully described  by M. L.

M.  m  mm.  n  old de Meyer, the pianist, was called  upon to play before Abdul Aziz. In order  that no injury niight be done to the beautiful,  mosaic floor, the piano vvas placed on the  back of five Turks ; then when M. de Meyer  clesired to sit down, he was told that no one  was-permitted to be seated in. the presence of  the Siiltau. Finally, this-^iuictiiiy-.^fls got  bver, and the professor was,. accommodated  with a. chair. The Sultan expressed, himself  as highly delighted with the performance,  and then asked the fiiaho to dance i  During the funeral, a few days back, of a  young Woman at Mphtfloriil, who liadappar-  ently-died in"an"epileptic"fit7^  after having thrown d spadeful of earth on  the coffin, thought he heard a moaning from  the tomb.; The :bddy was' consequently ez-  hnmed. and a vein having been r opened,  yielded blood alrdost warm and liquid. Hopes  ^vere for a moment entertained that the young  ^loman would recover froni her lethargy, but  ahe never did so entirely, and the next' day  *������������ was found to be extinct;  '..    ,  : The French are makiug fresh discoveries of  ���������oitumiucms shale, capable of yielding petro-  ^am" by distillation.

The report that the Russian government  were negotiating the sale of the Moscow and  St. Petersburg railway, seems to have been  well founded, and the price of ������12.000,000,  payable b������ instalments,.to .spread over three  years, is said to be the amount agreed upon.

JRonber, in favor  of peace,'': rib t w i tbsta nd ing.     What can   be  more slg n i fi can t o f this fact, th an th e fun d ing  for contingencies, not at present ad mitted, of  158,000,000 francs, just passed by the French  Charribers ; th e  u rgeht d!spatch"A which   is  being given to the manufacture of Chassepot  rines, and other am proved implements pf war.  The French government can guide,the press  sufficiently, to divert the people, who are inclined to.be.imposed upon, and those of other  nations, with articles ori peace and its advantages ;. but to those experienced in political  physiology, the ruse is too transparent, and  the-real state of aifairs is distinctly visible.  Treaties are now well understood to be mere  matters of form, strictly observed if it suits  all parties, but torn to shreds the moment a  nation thinks itself strong enough to do it  with impunity.   The treaties of.Paris of 1856,  as nd of Prague, although  only  so recent, are  seemingly set'at nought.   Prussia, strong in  her newly acquired' power, and assured ot  succor from Russia, is quietly preparing for  a further extension of territory ; where the  next attack will be, is of course known only  to herself and Russia.   As a natural consequence, Austria begins to feel herself isolated  and the only alliance attainable being that of  France, has, we may rest assured, completed  an arrangement with that power.    Russia, in  promising aid to Prussia, has of course, secured her adherence in the Russian designs  upon Turkey, which we may shortly expect  io be pushed forward to execution, and it is  in view of this eventnality that France is now  anxiously seeking a closer alii a n ce wi th Eng-  landi   The British government .ts fully alive  to the approaching crisis, and is xinostenta-  and justifiably; without the trammels of previously . formed alliances, which might bind  ber to conditions less favorable than those  she may obtain, when the moment for action  arrives. By the new organization of the  army, France will have an effective force of  800,000 men, that may be doubled by conscription in a very brief period. Italy could  muster about 500,000, and Austria a3 many  more, making for these three powers nearly  2,000,000 of men.. Russia has an army of  about 1.(500,000 ; Prussia about 700,000, making together 2,300,000 men ready for the field.  But against that Turkey can bring forward  300,000: soldiers, such as they are ; thus, exclusive of England,* the powers likely to take  the field are about equally matched. Other  powers may be brought into the strife, which  will unquestionably be the most terrible that  this world ever saw. _ Biit these are matters  upon which^no hypothesis can be formed at  present ; the progress of such mighty struggles acting like a vortex on the smaller  nations, and sucking them into its influence  by the force of events.

Powder Magazine.--We have had occasion  more than once to point out the urgent necessity, for some action being taken relative-to,  the erection of a building, at a convenient  and safe distance from town, suitable for  storing the large quantity of.blasting powder  that is distributed among the various stores  here, and although tbe grand jury, in their recent report recommended its construction,  still up to the present moment no movement  has been made in the matter. It"! is' needless  for us to remind the owners and occupants  of property that such a precaution is essentially required against the occurrence of fire  in a town like this, where there is no dividing space between the buildings, and where,  in the event of a fire, it would be difficult to  get any one .to risk his life by approaching a  building in which such a combustible and  explosive -material is kept We once more  urge the subject, as one deserving the serious  consideration of our fellow townsmen.  The Ghost.���������No little excitement has been  created during the past week among tho den-  ������������������to^^/jthi&i^Jacer-^^jcsraSog- a -veritable  ghost that is said to haunt tbe drifts of;the  Minnehaha Co., on Mosquito Gulch. Various  are the talesthat.have, been told respecting  its freaks, and the terror and dread into  which the workmen have been thrown by its  hideous appearance. To such an exten t, we  are told, has this alarm spread, that- it is with  great reluctance tnat "men are induced to  work in the diggings; -The company,; it is  fiaid. have been obliged,to abandon the works  to his ghostship, and will hunt for the- undiscovered lead on another portion of their  -claim.

For the last week or more,  the'question passing, from mouth to mouth  has been, "is there any truth in the story,,or  is it. simply a hoax ?" I therefore prepare for  your readers a stateraeut of such tacts of the  case as have come under my own observation, this week, with a view to satisfy the prevailing curiosity. <  Whatever may have been the precise origin  of the story could not be found out, for the  statements differ so widely in their material  points. When tbe apparition appeared, or  what form it assumed at first I cannot tell j  and this diversity rather tended to increase  the public excitement. However the imposing ceremony of exorcising the first ghost of  Cariboo took place last Friday, and it is this  we are now going to relate.  It appears that my friends, Jessie and Dick,  of Mosquito Gulch, being given to spiritualistic doctrines, thought it ..was wrong that  I gb psts shpu Id appear i n t un n els. in s tead.of  throng ti "Ihe 'recognized*' "clianner * of "chairs','  tables, stools, etc., and: as the .affair, as it  stood, was calculated to injure tbeir creed.  they invited a deputation of the Barkerville  people to visit Mosquito Gulch last Friday,  with a view to its investigation and settlement. As I had never seen a real ghost or  the ceremony of incantation, I determined to  be present on,the occasion. In due time the  deputation arrived ; oue learned gentleman,  with a large book under his arm, which all  said was a bible, but which shows, how little;  people here remember about the good book.  The incantation ceremony was then shortly  arranged at Jefifree's store, where all .collected,! The wealth and talent of the district  were well represented, and the procession  from the store to the shaft- was very imposing. It'was headed by Messrs. Jeffree and  'Babbit as chief priests, with a. white tunic on  their shoulders and a bottle of brandy in  their hands ; then followed Messrs. .Harnett  and Allan,'Dr. Chipp and Mr. Stevens;C. E,,  Prof. Denis and Mr. Burdick, Messrs. Floyd  and Weill, Adler, arid Barryt each with a bottle, -the; Flume aud Canadian, .companies,  Scott and McHardy, each with a bottle, the  residents of the gulcn. arid Professors George  Wilson and Joseph Eden. M. A.,- (manly-art);  as rear guard.;so that if the ghost, cut up at  all he might have bis head punched.  The procession was conducted with due  solemnity, only it seemed to me tbe bottles  Thb following suras were deposited in the  hands of the officers of court, up to Saturday  lastyop^behalf of ^.^f ^ -^jf ^j!! j passed from mouth to- mouth a leetle too often  &A R^ SiJfcl>s they filed  along.

They descended together, pale  but firm, as became men in such a crisis.  After a short and painful suspense, the word  '���������'hoist"; was given from below, and the com-:  mitted reappeared all, safe and sound, much  to the satisfaction of those who expect some  fun on Tuesday, and reported that after careful search they could find no ghost in the  Minnehaha diggings. At this announcement  a shout of joy went up from ailparties, for  Cariboo was saved from the charge of superstition and folly.  The remainder is soon told. After partaking of the hospitality of the Minn eh aha boys,  ���������and no one goes to Musquito gulch without  receiving the most generous hospitality-���������the  procession returned ia the same order to Jeffree 's and Babb i fct's s to res, o nl y. ra uch mo re  jolly than at first. The Macbeth chorus, written by Shakspeare for such occasions, was  given with great power and effect; and as  the words V all good spirits come in, all bad  stay out," were repeated, every body responded," Amen���������glory to God���������give us the  bottle Jessie���������Hallelujah." Ail, care and  sorrow being over, the rest of the day was  devoted to conviviality, according to taste���������  cribbage. sinch, and shaking the dips, being  most general. If I were to judge the land by  the visions seen coming home, I should say  the worst spectres of Cariboo, like other  places on the Pacific coast, were hot Scotch  toddies, and Hudson Bay ram. Strange aud  w;eird were the sights .seen all the way home ;  lights flickering here, there, and.every Where,  as men plunged through the muddyr trails ;  some lost on the bill lops _;sooie rosand the  Jack-of-Ciubs lake ; some in the swamps���������  laughing, shouting, swearing���������wbat a jolly  time it was. However, " alfjs well that ends  well" ; and as everybody by degrees got  home safely, and " nobody hurt on the outside," I close my- relation of the " Ghost  of Minnehaha," trusting that ail the spectres  of British Columbia may be exorcised as  speedily and thoroughly'as it was.    .

It appeared in evidence that tho plaintiff, on the  6th June last, received an order from Mr.  Ball, Gold Commissioner, for leave to^ work  in the Davis claim, in which he was a ^share-  bolder, and continued so to work until three  weeks ago, when he was discharged by the  foreman. After his discharge, plaintiff continued to work for twenty days, and brought  the present suit to recover wages for said la:  bor.' The Commissioner ruled that plaintiff  had no ground of action inasmuch .as be had  not/ institiited proceedings at the time of his  discKarge/aud therefore dismisFeJ^the case  with costs, without prejudice, however, to  plaintiff's right to sue the foreman qf the couv.  pany to shew cause why he was discharged. -  The. application of R.

The. .Commissioner, after, hearing ;evidence  and arguments on both sides, refused to grant  the ^privilege required, remarking, at the same  time, that the charter of-the Drain Co.; would  not be extended beyond the tiine therein mentioned, unless, it.could.be shown to him that  their failure to complete .the work did riot  arise from any want of due diligence on their  part.

One of these, owned by Mr. Jeffree, is situat-  tbe gulch, while the:other, owned by Mr. Baty  bitt, is located on alike commanding site on  the'Opposite side, where it is intended that  the,future township of Qroville will be built  The fouriclation 'has already been cleared off,  for a boarding house,saloon aud blacksmith;  shop...!

It appears^ from what we' ��������� could.-  learn, that almost ..every shaft that, has yoV  been sunk, has been put down onmqre'of  less pay, and when we consider4he trifling  cost in sinking compared with other localities,  we hesitate not to say that these nve thb best  poor man's diggings yet found in this district."  We understand it is the intention of nearly all.  the companies on the gulch to run tunnels to  tli eir claims duriitg the winter, so as:to enable*  ���������them-to work���������to-better advantage: in thi;  spring; .���������'���������A-AAAAy-A'-XAA'-y' A.
