From Vancouver Island
A telegram from San Francisco, of Monday, Oct. 24th, mentions the arrival at that port of the steamer Sierra Nevada from British Colombia, with nearly three hundred thousand dollars in gold. The Legislative of Vancouver Island had passed resolutions favouring a federal union with British Columbia. The news from the mines was generally favourable.
The Trip Down East. – The proprietors of the Canadian newspaper, Quebec, have re-published, the pamphlet form, the letters of their correspondent, Mr. O’Brian, written during the recent visit of the Canadians to the Maritime Provinces. The correspondent, as proved by the production of his pen, is a gentleman of education and talent. The account he gives of the trip is likely lively, very accurate, and compiled with excellent judgement.
