The most important, indeed the only intelli- gence is the complete triumph obtained by the colonists in respect to the Governor's attempt to obtain the sanction of the legislature to the im- position of n Royalty on the minerals of the pro- vince. We noticed in a former number the fact of the whole of the non-official members of the Council vacating their seats the instant that the Governor persisted in carrying the obnoxious measure by his casting vote. We have now to record the complete success ot that spirited pro- ceeding, the Governor having after vainly trying to persuade the recusant members that their duty to the Queen required thein to sacrifice the Colony, 6een fit to withdraw the Bill.
