CALIFORNIA TERRITORIAL GOVERNMrNT.
We trust that this vexed question is now
set at rest by the following declaration of
the "Organ," which appeared in the Na.
lonal Intelligenoer of Ihe 27th ult.
"Should the Free Soil party, or any
portion of it, hereafter be detected in any
act evincing a deliberate purpose to pre.
vent the formation of any civil govern.
ment in New Mexico and California, so
ma to keep up the agitation between the
North and South for sectional party ob
jects, the President may find it to be his
solemn duty to frown indignantly on that,
am not marely the first dawning but the
Perfect Day' of an attempt to alienate
Dne portion of the Union from another."
Thus we see that the President, possess.
ing all the necessary powers to establish a
Government in California and New Mex.
ico during the recess of Congress, is do.
termined to protect us in our rights. In
regard to a so called temporary govern.

ng broughout the community is
nt~ble. Go where you will-you are
sure Pt find some person reading the light
trash oi the day. You cannot tako a trip
by railroad without perceiving that the
ladiee, particularly the young ladies, are
abundantly supplied with the twenty-five
cent publications of the day, among which
Soulie's, Eugene Sue's, Alexander Du.
mas' works held a conspiuuos poition.
The sickly love-tales and servile imita
tions of the one-the thrilling adventures
of the other, and the deep horrors of the
third, seems to engross their whole atten.
tion, and some, so deeply are they absorb.
ed in devouring these pages that they are
unaware of being at their journey's end.
There is an immense amount of such
publications floating throughout the Union,
principally of foreign authorship and are
the means of "great disbursements or the
circulating medium." We do not com
plain of the money wasted in these novels,
although the sums might be more benefi.
cially appropriated, but of the faulse im
pressions and never failing corruptions
which they impart to the mind, and the
mind of a female should be as pure and
unsullied asthe paperon which she writes.
A young lady will shrink at the bare idea
of being seen in company of, or with, a
libertine or a man of doubtful character,
yet she is not alarmed at drawing from
her pocket or out of her travelling basket,
just such a personage in the shape of a
flippant author, and, getting into a corner
with him, listens with great pleasure and
intense application to all the horrid es
capes, loose adventures, coquetting wiles,
reminiscenses of courtiers, nuns, or priests,
which run throught his pages, and intend.
ing to do nothing wrong, she lays down
the book without blushing al its indelica.

We spoke of three remarkable French
authors, but these three are an embodi
ment of some three hundred. Some few
years since we strolled into the French
Chamber of Deputies, at Paris, and while
listening to the debates an accompanying
friend said -"Alexander Dumas, the cele.
brated writer of romances, is sitting on
yonder bench." We looked at his dark,
almost mulatto, physiognomy and flash
ing eye and asked whether lie really
wrote all the novels published under his
name. '-Not at all," said our friend.
"There are hundreds of writers, in this
city, of wit, taste and fancy, whose names
are unknown-they carry their works to
authors of celebrity, like Diumns, who
rend, adopt and publish them, giving the
poor author a portion or the spoils."
The French school of Philosophy, howr.
ever, is not the one in which our youth
can study w'ith advantage. Let them
read American works by such men as
Irving, Prescott, Baoncroft, Cooper, Simms,
Longfel low, Tuckerma n, Matthews, Ste
phens, Poe, llalleck, Clark and a host of
others, let our young ladies read the
wvorks or our truly celebrated A merican
Ifemale writers-Mrs. Sigourney, Miss
Sedgewick, Mrs. Kirkland, Mrs. Eleitt
and many others of esta blished reputation
or the many English wvriters who are an
ornament to the age. Where are Scot,
Macauley,Cowvper, Edgeworth, Cunning
ham, Porter, Thackeray, Milton, D'Isrcal i,
Bacon, T1upper, Aguilar, and thou.
sands of others, from them nothing inju
rious, nothing improper can be learned.
Then throw aside James, Mrs. Grey, Miss
Peckering and tihe host of "light writers"
which now make you all "light headed"
and take up such authors who will leave
some trace upon your intellects--sound
and instructive works.
The press should discountenance all
such frivolities. It may bo asked, sup
pose a book-seller should send you an ad
vertisement of French or other Novels to
be published in the "Banner," would you
insert it ? We answver No ! It is as much
a matter of business as selling opium,
oxalic acid, nux-vomica or any deadly
poison, whiich must be purchased and yet
are not articles which can be particularly

A little ch e ot re
the North may notb tnccept ur
quiet Southern vilage,'pdrjicular1y as eIo
surrounded with all kintilofexi r

events-and all the daily bustle and-confu
sion which spring from a mixed multittide of
half a million.. We have e
most exciting electioi in vioih tlio'WhI

jority against thomwhen'the Demidcraii par
ty is united. An attempt; was made to form.
a union between the Hunkers and Barnburn
era, but after the Barnburners had. obtiined
their candidate for Mayor they bolted and
nominated a seperate ticket for Council men,
the result of which was that both were defeat.
ed. - There is probably no difficulty- in form
ing a union throughout the state, butthe Free
Soil men will not give way and the true Dem
ocracy will never surrender on that question.
The entire vote of the Free Soil piarty in this
city is but 8000 out of 55000 votes, tand that
faction is crambling to pieces in every direc
tion. At the late Connecticut election"
their candidate, Niloe; polled but 3000 vote.
The Whigs may be considered Free SHilers,
but they are apprehensive that if they agitate.
at the present moment, looking to Gen. Tay
lor foe the full possession of the "Spoils," they
may awaken some strong Sotithern feelings,
so, until the sweep is over, they have agrced
to pursue a safe course of policy on that ques
tion. I see that South Carolina begins to
move in producing a union of the South on
this question; it is the true conservative poli
cy, if carried out with firmness and decision.
Rely upon it, that however abusive the Norih
may beof Mr. CALuOUN, his determined stand
in Congress at the last session arrested great
mischief. We are yet unacquainted with the
policy which Gen. Taylor may pursue upon
this question and are ignorant of the counsels
lie may receive from his Cabinet. A union
of the South, caln but firm, standing by the
Constitution and its compromises, will con
solidate a force and power which will keep
the abolitionists and their allies in check.
The original Clay men had a dinner last week
to celebrate his birth-day and when the wine
is in the wit is out--they finally burst out like
a volcano at the treachery of the Whigs in
abandoning their favorite for Taylor. There
is, doubtless, trouble and division in the
Whig ranks, and Gen. Taylor knows too lit
tIe of the political world to take the staff in
his own hands, Webster is an able man aid
plays boldly for every thing, and the Cabinet,
in leaning towards 1im and ylelding more
than policy dictates, will finally cave in, the
timid portion of the Cabinet is from the South
which is to be regretted the more so as there
is a strong coloring of old Federalism north
of the Potomac. The pledges of Gen. Tay
lor before the election are not likely to be
carried out by his Cabinet. The Whigs are
clamorous for proscription, the General, who
was elected by Democratic votes, is not as
firm in the White House atm le was in the
saddle. Let the South keep her ranks close
and all will go well-that section of the Un
ion wdll hold thme balanco of the power.
Trhecre is stirring news from Europe per
telegraph to day, Charles Alberm, the king of
Sardinia and the Austrians under old Mar
shial Radetsky have had three brave and de
termined battles resulting in thme overthrow
of Charles Albert, who has fled to Spain after
making every defence in h's power. Their
armies were of equal numbers but Radetsky
had the flower of the German armiez-grand
soldiers, brave and proud men wvith an ex
perienced chief, while Charles Albert had
new levies and indifferent soldiers. Thie
union between Russia and A ustria will secure
the latter the repossession of her Venetian
Lombard possession. Thme Riussian fleet is
coming through the Dardanclls-to join the
Austrians in time Adriatic. If, however, they
shall march a force into the Roman States for
the purpose of restoring the rope, there is
no doubt that France, nowv neutral. will cross
the Alps with an army. Russia is to be
paid for this alliance by the provinces on
the Danube. Probably when all is quiet in
E~urope, dlash will be made against Turkey.
The ministry in England cannot carry the na
vigation laws--the corn laws they yielded,
but commerce, their sheet anchor, cannot
be molested. John Bull is acting very dhis
creetly in maintaining a neutral p~osition, and
France wiil go with hnm.
Thie California emigrants begin to taste of
thme better cup which an inordinate passion
for gold has filled for them to the brim. They
have already experienced great sufferings
and I fear have to encounter more. They
have made and are still making great sacrifi
ces to reach the mines and when there I ap-.
prehend thme division of the spoils wvill make
but a slim dividend among so many.
Our money market tight--those who have
it are looking for high premims, but im.
