To get^lhe  mines Wpfe  be roads to them, as well to enable miners to  get there as for the supplies necessary for  ihem~-the market must bevcapable of being  reached otherwise there would not be con-  -flumers: as there would not be producers.   It  is thus pretty plain that roads are not for the  special benefit of the mining community, but  are necesBary for the country at large, abso-  lutely necessary for the public generally and  not specially for any particular portion of the  public exclusively.    The miners are merely  an integral portion of the comnxanity-having  a peculiar calling���������the country generally is  made up of classes haying peculiar callings,  but mutually dependantiupon ^each other.  Why then should one class be called upon to  bear almost exclusively taies that should fall  upon all in fair proportion, as all are either  directly or indirectly benefitted!   This observation will apply not only to the gold tax particularly, but to road tolls, postage on letters  and Borne others, for I think some classes in  British Columbia are not called upon to pay  road tolls?    However, wby^should.a person  living at a distance from the port pay more  for his letters than'a resident at the port? Are  they not equally a' portion of the population,  are not the various portions of the population  mutually dependant upon each other?   Have  the miners any special privileges to compensate* for these special exactions ?   The ground  yields gold, yields coal,; yields copper, iron,  &c., but none of these are of any use whilst  in the grounds-it is the labor necessary to  bring them forth that is valuable, the articles  themselves for tho most part are valuable in  proportion to the labor and demand.    Are  coat'or copper taxed?   Np.   The days of  taxes upon export* have disappeared.   The  kwx upon gold in British Columbia i* an  ceptibai- and is bhe of the barbafbus myths of  **royaltie3fV for Kings, which, Britishers seem  to havelmported with their other old fashioned absurditiea; - -The' Kings of ^British Colum-  bla|baw^aries ^aid; by^the peopleT--ti_ey  have then; no claims for royalties. But is  mining: i peculiarly profitable busiiies in Brit;  isb Columbia?;: Ask the - miners.,; Gold mining, speaking-gcfierally, is a loss; every ounce  o'E goldiprpduced in ^British Columbia lias in  labor and capital Cost'double itslvalue! The  half dollar tax upon the gold, then produced  is ah exaction of three per cent, upon losses!  or, if it cost double its value, really an exaction fif six per cent! How many of the claims  that produce the gold which Js taxed pay ex-  jpehsesX^; The ^Cariboo rSentinel'frandxthpse  con veraaat ^with the subj ect -say"1 un happily  very few. If this be so, the Government to  enrich itself-sinks the; losing men still deeper  in miflfdrtttne^-a;very enlightened policy and  one certainly calculated to encourage an en-  normous mining population. Mining for gold  is the* most precarious of enterprises'- b ii fc as  it is the only ;&tay of the country,;those who  them: and so far from bei ri ir; rc ore' taxe d than  ditiph&i Py a special tax ������������������ upon the gold they  produce cl,.. no matter at; what', expense,'": he  would not have misrepresented the case, but  recorded a fact',",which certainly,, -would, not  f'persuade tho miners that the profit is on their  own; side in the new arrah^m^t.^;-There  cannot be a, doubt,that the district of Cariboo  returns to the,,revenue of the Government ten  j times' the^ amqunt,. from other sources, so, that  the revenue* from Cariboo is not ������3000,- but  more likely ^������30,000.;; The idea Governor Seymour intends to/ convey is that Cariboo by  giying^SOOOgets S2S-60(X Itisnptso.jGov.

But if they have not done  so, or do not intend to do so, it will only lend  support to tie Government io ccntiriue the  gold and other taxes another year, for it has  already been made a boast of "that a public  iheeting to express their grievances could not  be gotten up in Cariboo when Gov. Seymour  was supposed to be about to arrive."-   The  miners and up country people generally know  very well that the unfair taxes have prevented miners going into the country, and are  driving those already there out again, such  being the case, they are enemies to; themselves  and enemies to the country if they have not  and will not make known the cause of its impending ruin.    At all events when the extract abovg was written "the principal officer  of my Government" liad not arrived at New  Westminster, and they only, saw-Gov. Seymour at Victoria a .few days before he left  for home.    The next extract ia a shuffle:���������  " The feelings of the people in each district  " of the colony, are entitled to every consid-  " eration, and I trust that a knowledge by the  "inhabitants of Cariboo that twenty-three  " thousand pounds are being spent in, the im-  '" provement of the district, the gold of which  ," has only; rendered three to the Crown, my  "persuade the miners that the profit is on  " their side in the new arrangement."   This is  called a "clincher" at New Westminster, an  unanswerable argument!  Doubtless it is very  cunning,'very diplomatic, well disguised and  calculated to mislead all outside the colony  or unacquainted with the subject.   Admitted  "that the gold tax has only returned ������3000  to the Crown," it must be equally admitted  that this irthft produce of a special tax. and-  being ������3000 for half the season will be ������������000 I  for the whole. ���������������������������   If the Governor1 had stated,  that the minera paid as muoh to the revenue  as oth������r people (sav ������20,000), and ������'3000 ad-  a ad As tori a,. .copjaec.ting;, taerb if Hhthte-^aja ^rHocisoo  'siaatiiers-.   ^hc-,win^lsogoto NewWeatmToateir"if tbo  Qbvernmeat will pay-them-for doing���������w"���������." the BriU'rii.  is a very nice .Government for.tbeae colonies, iracnsha  ��������� loaves th������ai and hersielf entirely at tbo mercy of Ariim���������  leans even Tor the- carriage- of her own liokjjstchos., Tk*  colon is3 are of; no ������se or importance to hefnow.'a.(laj^.

Disoragefci. Assault.���������A; most violent assault was committed yesterday morning hy  an idle fellow'named aipon a  man nanied Donald McDonald. It appeared  that the parties were drinkingin Chanccllier  & Co.'s, Lager Beer Saloon,; hi- barkerville,  when O'Neill attempted to take' some money  from McDonald, who was;drunk. vTho.latter  accused O'Neill of stealing $15 from him.  0?Neiil then commenced .a m>st violent assault upon the intoxicated man, and wks.only  prevented doing him serious bodily harm by  a bystander's i n ter fe ranee. O'Neill was soon  after arrested and lodged in jail. The:ease  was before the Police Court to-day and McDonald presented a fearful spectacle from the  abuse of the prisoner. The evidence as to  the stealing not being conclusive, the charge  of assault only was.jsustaiued. O'Neill was  bound over to keep the peace for six months  in two sureties of $250 each and himself in  $500, in default imprisonment with hard labor  for that term. The court auirnadverwd strongly on the conduct of the saloon keepers for  keeping a disorderly house and threatened to  withdraw their license on tho reenrrenee of  ant more rows. The most disgraceful, brutal  and unruly scenes have been enacted in this  house for some Lime past, and the bad character which Barkerville has obtained ha*  arisen solely from the disgraceful scenes allowed in this house. Il should most unquestionably be placed under the surveillance ol  the police.  j^rWe have news from Kootcnay to  30th Ult., but nothing of importance,  were about 500 men on Wild Hors  wages from $7 to $S per da.y;    11  were plentiful and cheap.
