It will be the 12 of Augt before we can receive the Governor's promised despatch, before which time it is to be hoped that an Act of Parlt will have been passed for the Union of B.C. and V.C.I.

I agree with Mr Blackwoods suggestion. Communicate proceedings on the Bill which is likely soon to pass; by telegraph to Governor. Resolutions are strongly for immediate Union.
At once.
