As a  Board we felt we had no realpower to deals  with questions affecting the taxation- of -ifche  miners. SuggesUolis which>em^  to the reduction'oftaxatibri tfi&t pressed-un-"  duly and unfairly on the^ificrs, iswell as  to have the Celestial miners taxed in thesamei  r&tio.as white men, as has been-proved sincoj  have been disregarded altogether by the Gov-  erament   Our sole business ther.eforb at the  Board was the Consolidation of the Mining Laws.. ��������� Mrith ���������respect .to  the   assertion of thb editor of." the.

"there, under went  a eertaio process which caused, them to stair.  tify their previous acts and oppose the tax on  their returri," I would just sjate that this sentence does riot contain an atom of truth.  We  did not leave New; Westminster ftntil/we had  finished the business, which took place sometime about the 20th of January, and we nev  er bad a ^single .meeting afterwards., of the  "Board for; any-purpdscV   Tlie assertion that  jwe met ini April is a pure fi ction���������we' had xio  meeting after January.

I would just say in concluding this letter,/which is longer then I intended  4^but it is my last���������that if the editor of the  'British Columbian" only sought to have fi>b'  noxious laws^^repealed and used the legUhnate  influence of  his journal to enlightea and  guide tho'Government in the path of progress,  ���������retrenchment1 and justice he would do far  mpjej.tp.sery.p.his.patwri8 than by fabricating  statements against, miners and passing them'  o!ff as truth simply because he knows the latter have af repugnance/to: appear in print to  cjontradict hia calumnies. / / :   ���������     v-  y-.r  ;������������������.. yyAySAyy ��������� Joh^I^w������bk������,::':::  :' Memberbf the Mining Board.  : Williams Creek, 29th Sept.l8G5.  / / ��������� t  niisaion.

We have been  favored by the"^flrst named, wlio is a most intelligent young man, with the following history in connection with their explorations:���������  Goodykoontz has been in this country over  two years* having come here from Washoe in  186?, He has been engaged in: prospecting  outlying creeks all the time, and last year he  extended his researches to the north over  one hundred miles, and, in his peregrinations  found tbe creek .which v. he has lately -been  prospecting on. On the 10th of August last  he started out in company i with French Joe1,  Who is an old miner on tbis creek, and.made  direct for what he considered'was. the now  El Dorado; /They bad two Indians packed  with 125 lbs. of goods each,'French Joe carried 150 fbs., and Goodykoontz had 85 lbs.,  making'a total of 485.lbs., but part of.this  was-mining tools. / They went down Williams  creek as far,as the swamp, which^they went  up- 11-2 .miles, crossed round the1 head of  ;ifcivMcfr:'brott^ a' cre^rttntxmg3  about east; they passed up this creek to its  sourpe, about/4 or 5 'miles, and crossed a very/  low divide in tlie mouhtains, and came to a  stream: which/ thep followed. do wri" abbut/1 %  miles; they then to ok /to thb left /and/traveled  tbrpugh a.Jat country^aboiit .7 milos^to Aniy  ler creek, which ffiej'. crossed 'about' 4;miies  from the m ou th; went'round : the' b ale"; of a  mountain, about 5 miles, to the lower Take on  :Bear river; traveled along the: beach to the  place it empties, crossed .'and'to ok an oliih-  dian trail, which leads to a lake abouti miles  distant; projbeeded; about 3 miles along the  lake shore/ and^turned-/to.tie left across a low  divide; ab out 5 miles distant they came to a  Jake which forms the head-waters1 of Salmon,  river, andJs known as Indian Point; here the  travelers got into a canoe and paddled to the  end of the 'lake, about ? miles;/:where there  was a pbirtage of:;'!;��������� mile,; oyer Which/they  hauled the canoe, to a/large lake, where they  launched the canoe and. went about 10 mile's  furtfife-by, water; .after landing the bold prospectors' started in a//W.N;W. course about 10  .utiles to'th������ t6p.:/pf';al'.hill ot divide,:.which  brough! them; tofthc/ hcacl of Vaughan & CoJs  creek; they went down;the creek 10-miles, to  within 2 or 3 miles ot the mouth, where they  turned up a gulch- Which came in-from the  west; about^rmile further/and they arrived  at the head of the new creek, which they  named "Old Dpminibn," after the discoverers  ! native State���������Goodykoontz being a Virginian  by birth. With the exception of one mountain, which however is easily accessible,-the  route to the new creek is quite level. /' The  country is timbered, but all along there is  plenty of grass for feed for animals. The region in which 014 Dominion creek is situated  is extremely like that around Williams creek  inits general features. The prospectors commenced operations about two miles from the  mouth of the creek,-by preparing lumber for  sluice boxes, which they were enabled to do  having had a whip-saw with them. After  getting the sluice boxes ready and set,. they  commenced to sink a shaft, with the following  results: After sinking 3 or & feet they struck  hard dirt, which prospected from a color to  what, might be considered a "nice prospect;5"  at 8 or V feet a stratum of red and yellow  dirt which prospected very fairly���������two pans  were tried, one gave five to six cents of coarse  gold, the other not so good; after sinking^  feet they came to blue clay, precisely like  that above,the canon on Williams creek, iu  this they could not get a color but abundance  of iron pyrites; altogether they put the shaft  down 16 feet���������about four feet iu the blue clay;  near the bottom the clay was very hard with  a great many stones-in it; they shovelled the  dirt as thoy went down into the sluice boxes.  While they were sin.kmg the rain came on very  heavy and the creek began to rise in the night;  about 10 o'clock the flood came, the dam they  had made broke and the water washed away  the sluice boxes, and filled up the shaft;  they had two sluice boxes with riffles, the  head riffle-box was torn up and the contents  washed out; tlje lower riffle-box was recovered after being imbedded ia sand and from  one of the riffles they took about $1 in gold,  which is of a deep yellow, rusty color. On  the high rock everywhere along the creek the  prospectors could find gold. There is a canon in the creek,, and below it are Uro well  defined quarto; ledges running N.N.W,, one is  6 or 7 feet thick and the other is about 12 feet.  Finding that their provisions were getting  short���������their bacon being ��������� done���������the men  started to prospect, a region to the N.W. bo-  fore their return. They soon came upon the  truck of the Covernment party; following it  lip"they overtook tnehi in aJ da^lnd a tiaif  Four of ;the party were in: camp and four  ,were out [ in the direction of; iEraser river,  which was not more than 35 miles distant.  They stoppqd oWrYfiightt fir^amp; ;.and after  giving the. direction of. Qld Dominion; creek?  to the pb'ty they returned/ - Four or five days  after:;7 of 'the party came to- the '!creek; -af te^;  arriving there they prespected and":expressed'  themselves extremely well/ satisfieU with the  T'lay out y' they said there ��������� was; everything5  present to the eye'to; indicate, that was  ri ch diggi ugs oil'! the; bed roc k. .,, When/ the  Gov eminent: party went .away to their / camp  they prontised-to send back four men to help  to sink a"shaft;' after waiting''4"*oifa5 days for'  them,, and their provisions being .very scared;"  tlie ihen iiad to returri here witliout seeing  anything more of/^ohn/McI^nVparty. Both  Goodykoontz and7 his partner consider that  the dirt down to the,, blue clay will pay r from  an ounce to two ounces a -dayito the,hand  with sluices. ,, The men have recorded five  discovery claims of 200 feet, each, and they  will leave for ihe new creek again:to-morrow  morning, with provisions for-six weeks, in  order to test, the creek thoroughly,.; Thcy-lpol  very sanguine that they have made a mo3t ira-  por tan t tl tsc or ery, and one that wil 1 lead tp  many ni6re, as'they consider/the new. region  a highly auriferous one. , .The/men can have  no/ofcgect/in making Mse statements in regard  to their disc pverins, as they are; no t. seeking  for money from.either the Govern^  public.

'X li "A*i -i X<.,.i.  f- On the 10th of/May the Expedition started  from Kamloopsand proceeded up the North  river as far as forks, of the Clearwater/SI ver;  The Valley of .the .Nprth ��������� river isidiscribed as;  very fertile and- * 'contains fiijly .60,000 acres  b.f the best agricultural" l|"rg^|n the colony:?'  .On the 3 ist May the part^pei*! up the Clear-  water river*. On the secblppiorning after  they had to. return bei ng u nab le to p roc eed  larther up the river." 'The gray el. is- the river  contained some fine gold. On the. 5th of June  Mr. Orr aud some/of the men.started to cross  the divide between the North river and the  Columbia, after proceeding a considerable  distance and crossing many rivers they were  obliged to return again to a place called  Victoria point. Onjho 7th of July a portion  of the party went east to endeavour to reach  the Columbia; Mr. Orr and the remander* ascended the North river intending to cross to-.  , wards Cariboo. He subsequently fpurj^ this  j to be impossible, i He got however on the  j summit of the divide, a bare granite peak 9000  feet above the level of the sea. The view  from this embraced to the east, North river;  S.E. the valley of tho Columbia and Shuswap;  \V. S. W. the valley of the Clearwater; and to  the North-west what Mr. Orr considered was  the Horse Fly valley. Finding that the range  could not be crossed for any practical purpose the party returned. ,The party afterwards crossed the divide between the Shuswap and tlie Columbia. *' At the head of the  pass they crossed an ice glacier in some places nearly 400 feet thick; at the back and south  of the glaciers thore was a wall of snow nearly 1000 feet deep;" On the 6th day they  reached the Columbia.,. -They prospected it  but could not get a color. On the 7th of August Mr. Orr- returned to the North river  where the remainder of the party were met.  They then began to return home prospecting  all along but not getting gold in appreciable  quantities. Mr. Orr gives it as his opinion  i that to the. eastward of the valley of the Horse  | Fly gold will not.be found in paying quanti-  j ties. j  1    Kcr A most sgneable change hf)S taken place in the ,  OariJa,.'
