Ilis account is not very flattering. He found plenty of snow but very little ore. Of the Richardson mine, which is kept carefully covered up and screened from observation, he says but little, hut of the next best thing he speaks equivocally, sayiug he saw plenty of— A thick, cream-colored substance, intermin gled with crystalized quartz, in which were traces of iron pyrites and mica, bright and yel low enough to deceive the uninitiated, lie also says, speaking of the same mine: The improssion given me by the proceedings at this mine was, that either the whole thing was a nzzle, or that it was very odd that owners with 'gold on the brain, did not break tbe crown ot some of the other hills hard by. This impression grew doubly strong when after a drive of eight miles we reached the Richardson diggings, and found no signs of anything going on near it but the erection of a frame tavern by our friend Moon. Old John Richardson him self was at the time holding forth to a small cm ie in tourists, aim cue scene rciuiuueuoue ot an old sexton at home, explaining the myste ries of some abbey crypt to ignorant excursion ists from some neighboring town. Every piece ol stone had gold in it, and all that glistened was, in his honest eyes, the metal. It was the faith in which he lived, taken with a little whiskey, and to tell him it was only iron pyrites would have been an outrage as pur poseless as cruel. That he should have got into a tix, the result of which is that his farm has became a subject of litigation between two American parties, with neither of which he is himself interested, is a very natural result from what may be called “the uature of the beast." Pendente lite, the mine is filled with logs aud rubbish, and there is nothing to see when you get inside the frame house that the Chicago people have built over the hole. Elev en hundred and fifty acres immediately around this mine arc leased to a company of five indi viduals, of whom my guide was one, and who obtained the privilege on these terms: The exclusive right to mine for 21 years, half the net proceeds to go to the fanner, and the work of development to be commenced within a year; for which a money cons deration of five shillings was given on the spot, “to kinder bind the writings, ’ as my guide said. The only other symptom of mining that we saw during our visit was a shaft sunk at the edge of a stream iu black mould; but nobody was work ing there as we passed. On the road home, the guide assured us that he knew places where the quantities of iron beat the Wallbridge ter ritory and the best of Marmora hollow. His own prosody, and my overnight exDeriences ot Madoe, nevertheless, led me to doubt wheth er the false quantities about me could be very easily beaten; but I made no observation to that effect, This correspondent lifts the veil so that out siders may have a partial glimpse of the land operations now going on iu the gold region, of the discomforts tube endured by gold seekers, anil of the parties most likely to get the cream of the whole operation. On these matters he says: lhe land is sold at Toronto, and the pui chaser and sqHatter must fight it out on tho premises. .J ust now, Sheriff’s officers may be able to execute a writ of lxab.foe.pot., but they will very soon he powerless, for though all the townships are, in my opinion, equally likely to yield gold, the rush will be to Mudoc, as long as human beings prefer a roof over their he ami to the open air, and as long as there is no ac commodation elsewhere. People and stages must go to some certain destination, and how ever much they may radiate from Madoe after wards, it, is there that supplies and intelligence must b«t obtained at first. Hoi then for a cor ner lot in the Oolden City, with lumber, nails, liquors, auil merchandise, and ifyou have a lit tle suttlcr’s experience, picked up in the “war," so much the less time it will take yon to make a fortune. I heard of a cabinet-maker there making over $20 a-day, knocking up beds for the new taverns that are being erected, and all sorts of labour will, doubtless, command im mediate employment in the spring. Gambling in lauds is like the game of “old maid”—very amusing as long as you can pass on your cards—but somebody has to he tho last holder, anil as the last flgnre is the highest, the sufferer will have more than a bagatelle to mourn over. CONFEDERATION, This new political movement in which the Provinces are engaged, continues to engross a great deal of attention, and inspire angry con troversies in the press of the country. The Globe at Toronto charges the Tory politicians nowin power, with being opposed to local governments and In favor of a single centrali zed government, and says of their leader: It iR notorious that the leader of the party’ Mr. John A. Macdonald, is at heart opposed to the concession of local self-government to tho people of the various Provinces, and that ho only accented Confederation because he could not get a Legislative Union. The Quebec Chronicle, while reproving the politicians of Canada West for their hasty disposition to mark cut the future course of action for the new Confederated government, commends them for early action in relation to the elections, and deplores the indifference and inaction almost everywhere observable in Canada East. The St. John Globe says: Even the Confederate papers themselves can not vet agree what Confederation is, or will he or do. They all cry out, however, to the Anti Confederates to give up sectional feelings and interests for the general good; and yet each in his own section, tries to show, as seems to serve his interest, that that section gives or loses more than the other sections. The Confeder ates of New Brunswick try to make people be lieve that Confederation is a good thing for New Brunswick because it is unjust to Cana da. The Confederates of Canada try to show that it is a good thing for Canada because it is uujust to New Brunswick. The only indication of feeling in Nova Scotia that we find in our Provincial files, is in the following from the paper last quoted: Private letters received from different parts of Nova Scotia—as well as reliable pnbiic journ als—agree in describing the feeling #f hostility to a Union with Canada as almost universal, and of the most intense and bitter character.— The people of the ai\joining Maritime Province are a highly intelligent and spirited people. It is but stating the simple truth to say that in everything relating to polities and to the due administration of public affairs, New Bruns wick is still far behind her elder sister. And it was not to be expected that such a people would quietly submit to have their dearest aud most ehorished rights trampled upon, even under forms of Jaw, by the faction which now, both at home and in England, totally misrepresents the public opinion of their country. Some of our correspondents apprehend serious trouble if the Scheme of Confederation now before the Brmsh Parliament should be forced upon Nova Scotia without an appeal to the constituencies for their sanction, and with a flagrant disre gard of their well known wishes. MAINE LAW IN CANADA. The Quebec Mercury is furious against Mr. Dougall of the Montreal Witness, because in a series of .Subday meetings the latter is laboring for Temperance, and to pave the way for a prohibitory law. The Mercury admits Mr. Bengali's sincerity and piety, but Insists that— The rule of a small religions community rep resenting a very small numerical minority of the people of Canada, and more especially of Lower Canada, is highly discreditable to Cana da in general and Montreal in particular. To show how an Englishman regards any attempt to interfere with his “refreshments,” and how silly he can make himself appear in print, we give another extract from the Quebec editor; Our religion, our laws, customs and traditions as Englishmen and our just freedom as Cana dians, are trampled on and tyrannised over by the Montreal Wittiest aud Connectient-blue laws party. Now, let us be directly under stood. We by no means pledge ourselves as eternally hostile to a “Maine law;” on the con trary our position is simply that, until the ma jority of the people of Canada are practical to tal abstainers, such a law is to the last degree unconstitutional, impolitic, impracticable and injurious; and that until moral influence has done its work on the people, till it has every where secured, in Parliamentary parlance 'a working majority” of total abstainers, all leg islation on the subject falls within the same category of unwise and tyrannous, or, as it is calle 1, unconstitutional legislation. The peo ple of Maine had liy moral influence reduced drinking men to a small,scattered minority be fore they passed au act against alcohol. Let the abstainers of Canada imitate their example, and not permit their cause to bo Wended up with .Sabbatarianism or any other abstract Proposition, Solong « «£$«?SSwSKS cordin'’ °to ’the^anefeni law. of England’, «f France ami of Canada, according to the tradi ranee anu o ,n ^ thclr ancestors far Wb mto' Gothic antiquity, and according to li.,. laws of nature and every principle of equi tv -oid justice, to have it on every occasion on which lasting is not a religious obligation.— Vnd therefore on feast days, except during the hours at which the citizen is supposed to be en caged in the civil no less than religious duty of public worship, it is more incumbent that be shall have what refreshment he desires, than on any other day. MANITACTCBBS. The Quebec Chronicle urges iqion the capi talists of Canada, especially in view of the wi der domestic market to be opened to them by confederation, the importance of engaging in the manufacture of cotton and woolen goods, and says; There is abundance of cheap labor to be had of the very kind that is most available for man- j -- - - . J1 ufacturing purposes. Largs numb.',, of Cana (lian young women hnd employment in tho manufactories of Lowell and other New Emt land towns. The state of matters there is now such that we have no doubt many of them would be glad to return to Lower Canaria with their acquired skill and experiences, to be em ployed here in those branches of manufacture in which they have been engaged in the States. CHURCH RITUALISM# 'The Toronto Globe has a long article on the ritualistic war now exciting attention in Eng land, denounces the newly introduced ritual ism .is a step towards Humanism, and among other things says: the^asAtwI?^* "^tb'8 ritualism heresy during rapid Ko’fr11'" hJ* W,‘ surprisingly but Tauntingly piwKin <lone ir,acorner, fore the woVld Pr5“,,?ed by ,tH adherents be whoie movement is towlraCtDtendency of tb<* tially Popish; and "f Z U “ ««"» hand, a breaking up of the Fn»i1 by,ajery fit-m tabUshnient is inevitable . .'“Kbsh Church La day. The best friends ot the ChntJJ dl8tan‘ feel this, and are anxious to avoid till,*?6 “nd There is danger to the Church of England*aud danger to our common Protestant religion THE REFORM PARTY. 'This party, consisting of those who long have labored to make population a basis of representation, is actively organizing through out Canada West, aud there seems room for little doubt that it will prove dominant, and control a majority ol the elections in that por tion of the Province, both lor the local legis lature and the confederate I'arlsament. THE I XTRRCOLONIAL RAILWAY. The St. John Mininj News has information to the effect that the Bill guaranteeing this road will be introduced by Mr. Disraeli, and says the guarantee will probably extend over forty years, allowing ample time for the re payment of the principal, through the medi um of a sinking fund, for which provision will also be made. The debentures to be issued under the guarantee are expected to bear 4 per cent interest. MISCELLANEOUS* Under the head of “Maine Impudence" the Globe treats its readers to a column devoted to the preamble and resolves of the Maine Senate, mildly suggesting that outsiders may mind their own business, while the people of the Provinces will attend to theirs. The Toronto Globe publishes in full the Reconstruction bill recently passed by Con gress, with favorable comments, and considers that it upsets the last hope the Democrats had of preventing the .consummation of the radi cal policy of the North. In the Canaua papers we often read of the “Ridings,” as the North Riding of Middlesex, Ac. To the uninformed it may be interesting to know that such is but another name for a Parliamentary District, the Riding showing the county or counties or portion of a county entitled to a member of the Provincial Par liament. A loan for the use of the new Confederate Government is being negotiated in England, or at any rate, efforts to this end are being put forth by Mr. Galt and other distinguished financiers. A special session of the Canadian Parlia ment is talked ot, before the inauguration of • the new Confederation. Both Mr. Brydges of the Grand Trunk, and Mr. Swineyard of the Great Western Kailway, the two “Hailway kings’’of Canada, ate on their way to England. The yreyarines, or insect life of the “Chig non, are being discussed with lively interest in some of the Canada papers. It gives one a crawling sensation to rend the discussions upon this lining issue of the day. We close our Provincial record this week with the following marriage notice, cut from the London Free Preen, remarking that its length and minute details are not unusual.— It shows that even marriage knots may be tied up with a large amount of red tape: On the 2Slth of January, at the Cathedral Church, St. Johns, Newfoundland, by the Venerable Archdeacon Kelley, M. A., John Tunbridge, Esq., Superintendent of Stores and Acting Barrack Master at that Station, to Sydney Mary Elizabeth, second daughter of Peter \Veston Carter, Esq., J, p., senior mag istrate for the district, and sister ul ±\ it. (tar ter of this city. Conditions Rebel Mabmisaion. The Charleston (S. C.) Mercury, in the fol lowing distinct statement, only gives form to an expression very common in Northern as well as Southern Democratic journals: Thereis not adoubt that the Southern States, in ending She war by their submission to the authority of the United .States, did so distinct ly with tho expectation that the Government of the United States would carry out faithful ly the principles which it had declared in jus tification of the inr. This language implies, if it means anything, that the Southern States would not have end ed the war at the time they did, if at all, un less they had entertained a distinct expecta tion that certain conditions were to be ob served by the conquering power, and that a certain line of policy was to be followed In relation to the submitting States. A sillier and falser humbug was never put forth. • The South fought to the “last ditch.” They held out as long as they could. When Gherman marched from Atlanta to the sea al most without opposition, he demonstrated, what had before simply been asserted, that the rebellion had become a mere shell. Its substance and resisting as well as aggressive power was gone. It was played out—gone up, to use the language of the street. So true is this that when Lee surrendered and turned over an army miserably depleted in numbers, the people of the North, with almost ono opinion, thought be had played a trick upon Grant, and while he had turned over a mere remnant of his great army of Virginia, that he had actually seat the larger and better por tion out of the State to unite with Johnston, who would make a stand and give battle in an unexpected quarter. A few days after wards Johnston himself surrendered to Sher man, but the same miserable display of thin ned ranks was again seen, and there were not wanting thousands and tens of thousands of intelligent people in the North who verily believed that the great bulk of the rebel ar my bad been clandestinely spirited across the Mississippi, to make a stand and defy the ad vancing Union forces in Texas, ready if beat en to go out of tbe back door aud And a lodg ment on Mexican soil, leaving behind a mere remnant to cover their stratagem. A brief period, however, was sufficient to disabuse the public niiud, when it became ev ident that the whole rebel army was defunct, and that for months they had been keeping up a big show without any corresponding power behind it; that they had been doing a large business on a very limited capital. In relation to any distinct expectations, they had none. They were whipped and they kuew it; they were prepared to accept almost any terms the victorious party might exact. They had, through their commanders, simply stipu lated that, so long as they observed their pa role, and behaved themselves, they should not be punished by United States authority for past military acts. This was all they distinct ly expected or understood. The leaders were constantly inquiring what tho terms were to be. Delegation after delegation visited (lie White House to ascertain, it possible, what they should do to be saved and brought hack lo the Union told, and not till the devil of ambition entered into Andrew Johnson, and he began to dream of a new lease of official life, or of becoming immortal by combining the Southern people with their Northern allies, he U'ing the representative of the combina tion,did the southern leaders have the slight est idea that they could gain anything by (ail ing buck on their dignity, talking about State rights, and virtually laying down -the condi tions of their own return to tho council halls of the nation. They found in tho Executive a yielding spirit anil they took advantage of tbi‘ discovery, and stiffened up their oyni backs as a matter of course. But ns a con temporary well remarks, no matter what their expectations or whether they had any, they would have made no difference with their surrendering. “They would have surrendered •‘on any terms, that promised them existence, “as their lives wore at the mercy ct the men “who had conquered them. This pretense that “the Northern people have violated anyagree ■‘ment or pledge made to the re'iels is merely “designed to strengthen Southern obstinacy “and furnish some excuse for not complying “with the reconstruction plans wb.cli Congress “insists upon.’’
