' .Uention of our readers. It is bold and re

democratic; There is no reserve or mistifi

MORTALITY IN ST. LOUIS.
The number of interments reported by the
8extons of St Louis for Moqday last is 160
127 of which died of chokio. The number re
ported for Tuesday is 130102 from cholera.
For Wednesday 137 cholera 108. For Thurs
day 121 cholera 93. Those are all the official
reports we have. The epidemic is said to be mea
The Weather and the Wheat Crop.
During the past two weeks the weather has
been the most inauspicious for the season of
hai vest. It has been warm, rainy and sul
try, with but little sun during the whole
time. From present Indications, the farm
ers must sustain a heavy loss from damage
done to the wheat after reaping. We have"jonld find room. Col. Benton nude I. if
conversed with several gentlemen recently
who say their crops axe moulding & sprout
ing in the shock
J In a conversation with an old Demo
crat a few days ago, one who had been a sup
porter of Benton for more than "a quarter
of a century," we asked him how he liked
the Senator's speech at Jefferson City.
He replied there was one remark in it that
pleased him much. He said he had read it
carefully, and was well pleased when he
found at the conclusion of the speech the
Senator's avowal that if debate cannot be
silenced upon this (the slavery) question,
UI trill silence myself." ' He added, I want
him now to silence himself.
Letter From the Hon. John Jamison.
We call especial attention to the following
letter from the Hon. John Jameson to Lt.
Governor Thos. L. Price. It is in reply to
a Iettef from the latter gentleman, written,
no doubt, for the purpose of securing his
cpaeurrence in favor of Benton, and to be
used to prop him in his present awkward
position before the Democracy of Missouri.
But, alas t the letter instead of a good old
Democratic prop for the treacherous Sena
tor, we see in it nothing bat a bludgeon,
wielded by a harculean arm to beat the re
bellious Senator into obedience or out of
the Senate. Every body in this Congres
sional District, at least, knows who the Hon.
John Jameson is, and where he hat always
been found. , Lest any one should have for
gotten him, we will merely add that "he is
the identical John Jameson of whose hon
esty and capacity Col Benton spoke in the
most flattering terms, in his speech deliv

from that fact stated in his speech that
New Mexico and California were now free
of slavery, and he wonld not go for send-
ing it there and if he was not, it would be
easy for him to say so, in so many woros,
without equivocation, so that his friends
might have no ground to disagree as to his
views on that question. I then wind tip by
deploring the condition he has placed his
friends and the party in, and call upon you
as an old friend and firm democrat, to take
a calm review of the whole matter.
Your true fiiend,
Lieut. Gov. T. L. Price.
P. S. I much prefer, as my opinion on this
matter will become known soon, to many,
that it should be known at once to all, with
the above synopsis of reasons for the same,
to prevent any misunderstanding, and as
I expect, too, it will become necessary,

SIGNIFICANT ! "STRAWS SHOW WHICH
way the wind blows." The St. Louis Re
publican of the 13th inst., says: "We an
indebted to Co . Benton for a copy of his
speech at Boon ville." In the next day
Republican (19th) the speech appears, end
reads thus :
"At two o clock, the court house was
"crowded, and as many at the windows a.
thanks to the citizens of Cooper and of
"JJoonviUe, for the kind invitation they ha!
"given lum, and the full attendance wit!
"which they had honored him,"&.c.
The conclusion of the speech reads af
"Mr. B. concluded with thanks to the au

"been profound during the whole speed
"only interrupted by their own applausrs,
"and received, as soon as it was over, the

Col. Benton it is well known always write;
out his Speeches before their delivery, and
the inquiry arises whether he did not on the
occasion of this speech, do the same thing,
and was not this speech sent to the Repub
lican prepaied by his own hand, puffing self
glorification and aur Again, who are tne
new friends to whom the Col alludes?
Who arc they Democrats? they are his
old tnends. Fray tell us who are the new
friendi ? Are we to hare in Missouri an
other marriage like that solemnized between
the houses of Kinderhook and Braintree
between Van Bilreo and Adams at Buffalo
last year. Are the houses of Benton and
Bates to be united in the bonds of love ?
Verily, if "Montague" and "Capulet" do
not makepeace, it will not be the Colonel's
fault. Come, little Neddy, kiss Corinthian

As lo the extent and wealth of the gold re

in regard to the ease with which it i oltrn rep

eral old miners wbo had crossed the Rocky
mountains and settled in Oregon, but on the first
report of the discoveries of cold they had left
tliul country and guiie to California. They state
that judging trom the volcanic lorm.it ion ul tlie
coui irv and the appearances that eery where

cold will be found equally abundant on both
sides of the Rocky .V.tintain chain, lor a very
ureal extent. New mines were discovered
within thirty miles of bun rauci5co, a few
days before .Vr. Li'riiig left. He Irought with
.im some Leaiititul specimens of tl.e cold found
in the dry 'd'frgins.' Some of them weighed
five or six ounces, and had the appearance of

seeing these they immediately fill their bag

have been digging during the past se.son, but
moire than ten times that number are expected
to arrive before the next season opens. Jul
now very little is done in the mining district,
owing to the slormy and unhealthy weather.
Chills and fever were very prevalent, and the
lutrict would not be considered healthy for dig

in tents. The little town of Stockton, near th
mining region, is composed entirely of tents.
