i Ia describing this work in a proper nuinner the
Poughkeepsie Journal states that the tunnel itself
ia 530 feet long, and through solid rock. At the

by the light of candles and through the' shafts

through which a glimpse of daylight may be ob
tained. But emerging at the north end one deep

The Election in California..
A correspondent of the Boston Times gives the
following account of the election was conducted
in the diggings. ; ' j
Oa the day appointed we were encamped six
miles below our present location. Puringthe Jiot
part of the day, the season of the siesta, a young
iutelligqnt.-lyoking man came iutp the camp on ,.a
mule and invited us all to turn out and go to the
polls. We had been ins the country but a few
days, and knew very little of the local politics, but
decided mpon Mlowiu' the young man to the
Big Barr where the election was to be . held, and
there gather what information we could. Off we
went by the mule path, over hiil and ravine, crag
gy rocks, and through thorny chapparal, until we
came to the Bar. The place of meeting was a
store-tent, and here we met about twenty miners.
We arranged ourselves along on a log under the
edge orHTie tent arid waited the progress of events.
JJirectly our guide took off his hat and nomina
ted a moderator for the meeting, then three inspec
tors and a clerk, all whom were chosen without a
dissenting; voice. At the request of one of the
th 3 part)-, he then stated the object of the election
and at the same time informed us. that the first
name on the prepared ballot for the delegate to,
the Convention was his own. One of the- promi
nent questions in the election was an expression as
to whether slavery shall be allowed m Ualilornia.
The candidate, though a Louisiunian, wasopposed
out and out to the introduction of slavery here, and
so we all voted for him. For myself, I was of the
opinion of an old mountaineer, who, leaning against
the tent pole harangued the croud, that in a country
where every white man made a slave of himself,
there was ho use of keeping niggers. I deposited
my ballot in an old candle box in accordance "with
this opinion. .
Interesting from the Camanchc Nation.
We learn that intelligence has been received at
the War department, respecting. an important, na
tional Council recently held by the Chamunche
Indians. This council lasted ten days, and its.ob
ject was to elect a new chief to rule. the nation (in
place of the one recently deceased) and the mdivi
dual thus honored glories in the name Buffalo
Hump. Oa being installed into office, after the
Indian fashion, this chief called upon his subordin
ates freely .to express their opinions upon all mat
ters "of importance connected with the affairs of the
nation;, wnereupon many speeciies were uenverea.
They were generally of the most friendly character,
but pone more so than delivered-by the newly ele
cted chief himself. He maintained that his people
had formerly made war upon Texas when it was
"feeble "and alone, and had gained nothing; and
he gave it as his opinion that if they now continued
to make war upon Texas, since it had become
a part of the United States, .the result would
be their , utter destruction as a nation. . He
also expressed his determination to do all in his
power to put a stop to the thieving depredations
which had been committed by a portion of his
people against the whits inhabitants, and expressed
a hope that bis efforts would be successful. Ihe
prominent members of the Council having agreed
to the advice of Buffalo Hump, two subordinate
chiefs were appointed to communicate in person
the result to Captain Steele, of the 2d dragoons,
at Fredericksburg, by whom a report was made to
lieneral Brooke, commanding in lexas, who for
warded it to the War Department

Treaty with the Sioux Indians.
Govs. Ramsev and Chambers, have been in con-
ference with the Sioux at Mendota, near ' Fort
Snelling, for several days past "The number of In
dians in attendance is about three thousand. We
regret to learn, that there is no-hope of effecting
any thing like a general treaty with them at pres
ent They allege the season is too far advanced
for thisand some other reasons, they decline en
tertaining any proposition of the kind this season.
Ihe (Jornmissioners are to meet what is called
the Half Breeds, at t..j same place, on Monday
next, to treat with them, if practicable, for a tract
of land they own on the west side of the Mississippi,
opposite Lake Pepin, some 35 miles on the river,
extending back 15 miles.
On Monday the 16th they met the Wapatee,
Wapokotee and Sissetons, bands of the Sioux, to
negotiate with them for lands they own. It will
be recollected, by those not much acquainted with
Indian affairs, tnnt every nation, united by a com
mon language, -'are divided into bands, each claim
ing seperate interests in lands. It often happens,
however, they unite in a general treaty.

The New York Courier fe Enquirer, announ
cing the acquiescence of the French Goverment in
the dismissal of its Minister Poussin, remarks:
This result must be in. the highest sense pleasing
to every friend of the country. While it dissipates
every feelmg of apprehension that the rupture be
tween thetwo (jiovernments may lead to serious hos
tilities, it vindicates thoroughly the course pursued
by Gen. Taylor, ki dismissing a person so grossly
offensive to the Government Of course, we have
means of knowing in what manner, M. De Tocque-
ville explained or obviated his quasi endorsement
of M Poussin's conduct in his despatch to our Sec
retary of State ; but that fortunately, is a matter
with which our Government has no concern. Jt
he can maintain his position in the French Cabinet
after so direct a rebuke as this, he has reason cer
tainly to congratulate himself upon a facile temper
and a strong hold on the favor and confidence of the
French President- - - - ... - - -
Our own Government stands nobly vindicated
from every suspicion of rashness or imprudence.
It has acted promptly, fearlessly and with the safe
and noble instinct of true patriotism. The Wash
ington Union, as the special organ of the French
Minister and its echoes here, will probably feel this
result to be keen disappointment as it falsities
their prediction and deprives them of every
shadow of ground for denouncing the Governmeut
of their own country. But it cannot fail to prove
highly gratifying to every one who appreciates the
blessing of peace, nnd estimates at its proper va
lue, the dignity and honor of the country.
The widow and children., of Peter Davis, who

''Gen. Taylor Rebuked!"
The above is the language of every locofoco pa
per, from the Democrat down to the Washington
Union, in speaking of any of the recent elections.
The recent triumphs of Locofocoism in Pennsylva
nia, Georgia, Ac., are proclaimed by tbem as a re
buke to the administration of Gem Taylor. ' This
kind bf stuff may do to tell to those who do not
take note of such matters, but those that under
stand the relative strength of parties in the States,
and notice the number of votes polled at each elec
tion, can' see the deception intended to ' be played
on by these honest papers.
At the reeent" election in Pennsylvania, there
were sixty thousand votes less polled, than at the
Presidential election last fall forty thousand of
which are Whigs. No sane man can doubt that
had there been a full vote of both parties in that
State, but that the whigs would have carried it
triumphantly. In Maryland a full vote would have
been a Whig triumph. As it is the Whigs have a
majority in both branches of the legislature, which
secures a Whig U. S. Senator. In cases of gener
al apathy, the-Whigs are always losers. In Geor
gia, says the Huron -Reflector, the pro-slavery ex
citeraent is very high, and as usual, sets in favor of
Locofocoism. President Taylor is not radical en
ough to suit pro-slavery propogandism there ; and
the opinion of the Washington Union seems to be
in the ascendent that "the only friends which Sou
them (pro-slavery) interests, can claim at the North
are to be found in the ranks of the Democracy.'1
As to the Maryland and Pennsylvania elections, the
New York Tribune says: :
"There is one striking difference between Whig
T c . ? . '1 i
ana Aiocoioco victories, tjaii out a very targe vote.
and there will generally be a relative Whig in
crease; but let the vote be light and the larger
share of the loss is almost certain to fall on us.
The simple explanation is that the great mass of
plodding, thritty, stay-at-home people, who do not
seek othce and are not the blind devotees ot .Party,
side with us when they vote, while the great mass
of politicians by trade are instinctively against us.
When the elections are mainly - left to this latter
class, we 'stand no chance; when the latter take
hold, we generally do welL ' The : Locofoco boasts
of greatyains in Baltimore, Philadelphia, &c, are
simple guH-traps, baited by the truth that more
Whigs than Locotocos stayed away from the polls
at the recent elections. Jb or example:

Hamilton County Clerk.
This individual, who has made himself notorious
by taking upon himself the power of deciding up
on the right of members to seats in the Legisla
ture, and who held the laws of the State in so low
an estimation, that he refused to give certificates
to officers duly elected, in violation of all right and
justice, has finally been arraigned before the
Court of Common Pleas at Cincinnati, to account
for his unheard of outrage, not only upon the peo
ple of Cincinnati, but upon the people of the State.
The charges were preferred by Messrs. Broadwell,
Runyan and Scott of the 1st District the Whig
candidates for the Legislature.
This is as it should be ; and we hope he may be
punished to the full extent of the law. We do not
know whether his conduct will entitle him to a
term of years in the Penitentiary or not ; if not, it
ought certainly deprive him of his commission as
Clerk of the Court He has undoubtedly violated
his oath; and we hope by our next issue, to have
the gratification of informing our readers, that he
has been impeached, removed from omce, and a
good Whig appointed in his stead.

-TJie .Mosquito Difficulty. . - ,
Our readers, no doubt have all heard the; 'Mus
quito difficulty, talked about, and a great; many
of them, perhaps, like ourselves, do not exactly
know where this Musquito country lies, or the rea1
son there is so much fuss made about it Mos
quito is a part Nicaragua, which is-one of the five
States of the territory ( of Guatimala, and lies be
tween Mexico and the bay of Panama. The cause
of the difficulty between the United States., and
England about this affair, as near as we can un
derstand it this : -The - State - of Nicaragua has
granted to an American company the privilege of
opening J a .communication between -the Atlantic
and the Pacific, by the route of the San Juan river,
and the lake Nicaragua.' This fact having become
known; the British Consul at New York gave notice
to the Nicaragua Company that Great Britain had
certain rights of sovereignity over the territory
through which their projected route lay, that the
Musquito country was under British protection
and that he was instructed to inform the company
that ''the boundary line of the. Musquito kingdom
touches the St. John's river at the Mechuca ra
pid, about thirty miles below the lake Nicaragua,
and. that from thence to the mouth of the St John's
the navigation of that river belongs to Mosquito."
On the contrary, the State of Nicaragua claims
that the Mosquito country is an integral part of its
limits, and claims exclusive jurisc'iction over it, and
has . protested in mild, yet emphatic language.
against the pretended claims .of Great Britain to
the right of protecting that (Mosquito) territory,
and has asked the protection of the United States,
as well as the that of all Christian Governments.
Mosquito is inhabited by Indians and Negroes, and
England founds her pretentions upon the fact that
she has entered into a contract with Mosquito to
protect her against Nicaragua. The English, am
bassader to that territory, wnt through the full
formality of crowning a black boy, and proclaim
ing kim king of the territory ; a most ridiculous
farce, and did for the purpuse of claiming a right
in that territory, and preventing the American
company from building their' Canal across the
Isthmus. Against this attempt of England to in
terfere with the rights of American citizens,- and
her encroachments upon the territory of Nicara
gua, our Government is understood to have taken
a firm stand, and notwithstanding the abuse that
is now being heaped upon the Administration by
the Locofoco press in general, and the Washington
Union in particular, we predict there will be no
backing out like that of the "fifty-four forty or
fight,' that the dignity and honor of the American
Republic will be fully maintained, and that the
American Company at Nicaragua will go on and
build their canal, and that England will relinquish
her preposterous claims.
In referance to the Ship Canal proposed to be
constructed by the American company here men
tioned, a letter in the New York Tribune says 'it
is understood thet a most important treaty has just
been concluded between the American Minister
and this government embracing some provisions
concerning the propased canal. It is probably
more favorable to our interests than any which
has yet been negotiated with any of the American
The contract with the American Company for
th e making of this great inter-oceanic canal is for
ninety-seven years, with a further extent of twenty
years, and . secures to the company the right to
make a ship canal or railroad, as they deem pro
per. It is said the company will proceed at once
to improve the present means of transit making it
a rival of the Panoma route.

sembled in Frankfort a Convention engaged in re
modeling the Constitution of the State. In this
Convention the non-slaveholders have not a single
representative the one hundred delegates are all
slaveholders, although they represent but one
sixth of the white population.
And this fact so extraordinary, it is conceded by
the Louisville Journal, requires that the system
of slavery should be indefinitely kept up ! And to
this end," a Committee of the Convention have
made a report, recommending a prohibition to vol
untary emancipation, although it is conceded that
its permission would only tend to an imperceptible
wearing out of the system by natural causes, after
a great lapse of time. As a further indication of
"progression backwards," it is proposed in Conven
tion, to empower the Legislature to removcorci

The Governor of Canada has had all the

EST Bad as may be the nature of man, still the
honor for noble deeds, the respect for virtue, the
abhorance for that which is ignoble or base, will
ever influence bodies of men when acting on first
impulses. .When the traitor has performed his
part whenthe end is gained for which he has
been employed; those whom he has most benefit
ted will cast him from them, " and the very men
who lured him to the deed, will spurn him as if
the touch were contagious, or as if his very pres
ence breathed infamy.
3T The next Legislature bids fair to have full
the usual number af questions of contested seats
before if. The Zanesville Courier states that the
Coshocton Loco's seat - will be . contested. The
right of Mr. Gaston, the Loco member from Guern
sey, will be disputed, on the ground that he held
the othces ot Master Commissioner and commis
sioner of Insolvents. The election of Mr. Ross,
the Loco elect from Jackson and Galia, will be con
tested on the ground that he held a commission as
Associate Jude, on the back of which he wrote a
resignation, but did not forward notice thereof to
the Governor, or even send it out of the county.

Graves, Treasurer of Mississippi, was a defaulter
to an immense amount Where he is, or where
he has been, nobody knew, , ,B"t behold, a mys

man in California, the writer says, that on the last

the guise of an Englishman, hoarding up gold, he
found this same R M. Graves! Graves said he
was laying up money to pay his debts in Mississip
pi! It is to be hoped he is, and that Mississippi
will recover part of the money. He was one of
the originators and strong advocates of Repudia
