Cartridge Box CoxjrmmtB.
It might be supposed that the present
Congressmen would have somewhat heed
ed the rebuke of the late elections; hut
it seems to be mure rabid, more vindic
tire, and more revolutionary than ever.
Goaded to desperation by the prospect
that the Democracy will control the
House of Representatives, the attempt is
to be made to carve out new States, so us
to fill up the Senate with Imgus members
and to overwhelm the Deniociatic tna*
jority in the House, by electing abolition
under the directions of Generals in
the field, and military Governors. But
ler of New Orleans, lias already inaugu
r%t*& the movement, by electing two
members of Congress :n that city. It is
uotorious that they do not represent the
citisena of New Orleans, any more than
they do the denisens of Paris or London,
yet these bogus Congressmen, elected bv
the cartridge box instead of the ballot
box, will balance Democratic Congress
men from the North. Words fail to do
justice to this assault upon every basis of
free government. The Adiuint-tration
have just as good a right to prohibit the
lair election of Congressmen as to lore*
bly use their power to overbalance tto.se
rightly elected. The right of the people
to govern is defeated, and that. too. >>y
making the military the superior an I ru
ling power. *lt is, in a word, using tin
army, not to carry on the war, but to
perpetuate the political power of the Ad
ministration. In the furtherance of these
plana, Western Virginia has been a .mit
ted ae e State in the Union, in utter vio
lation of the Constitution. A more glar
ing, a more revolutionary act. has not
been before committed. But this sums
to be only the beginning of these high
handed measures. A daily abolition pa
per of this city, says that " the pr-je-t of
dividing Texas into four States, with
eight Senators to represent them ui Con
gress, is under consideration, with a good
prospect that the measure will finally In
resolved upon." He also see that a
41 loyal State Government" i- to be start
ed in North Carolina, soiiu-w In-re on the
coast, which will of course, furnish two
more Senators, an 1 the satin- may ha
dona in Georgia, Smith Carolina and
Florida, indeed everywhere where tln-re
are a few soldiers or •• contrabands" to
vole. Carry this plan out, and with a-t
army to sustain them, there w ill h- n .
need of holding elections in the North,
for the cartridge box can he it the haliot
box in electing men t-> office two to one.

Yosehitk is Winter.— A visitor to
these celebrated falls, gives the following
description of a Winter view, in the Mar
iposa Gazette :
The valley has not that cheerful, invit
ing appearance which it bus when clothed
in the verdure of Spring. To me ti e as
pect was cold, cheerless and forbidding
There is but little w ater at either the Iti i
dal Veil or Yo-Semite Falls. The spray
from the water as it falls in the coldest
weather, is turned into snow, which ac
.cumulates at the foot of the falls in im
mense masses. The small streams of wa
ter which in many places run down the
reeky walls of the valley, frees* hi thut
iarge masses of ic- are formed, which at
time* clevo olTand full with a thundering
noise. This, with the snow slides which
frequently come down the mountain sides
were to me the most interesting features
df the valley.
A Strong Hint. —Harper's pictorial of
January, contains a wood-cut represent
ing Columbia demanding of Lincoln :
11 Where are ray 15,000 sons, murdered
at Fredericksburg ?” To which Lincoln
responds, characteristically, “ This re
minds me of a little joke.” Columbia in
terposes, “ Go tell your joke at Spring
field.” *

Demoralisation.
Some days ago, the following sentence
occurred in an article tn the San Francis
co Uulletin :
There is some stealing and some rob
bery committed, notwithstanding the
law punishing these bflTonses p but repeal
all laws against stealing and robbery, and
who would be safe for a moment ?
The Herald took exceptions thereto,
ond commented on it as follows :
Tolerable as a proposition in logic, but
the suggestion is not true in point ol
fact. In the mines, dnnug the early days
of California, there was no such thing as
law or lawyers, and such crimes as steal
ing or robbery were scarce known ; for
if suspicion of such an offense was at
tached to an individual, his death war
rant was as good as signed. Property was
never so safe in this State as before we
had law and courts to punish stealing.
A law which treats, as criminal, offenses
which the moral sense of the community
does not recognize as criminal, cannot be
enforced; but without any written law
against them, otfenses which the moral
sense of the tnimiiunity recognize as
criminal will always meet with prompt
punishment. It may be assumed a- a
matt- r of fact that if we"had neither laws
or courts in Sail Francisco to punish
thieves aiid rubbers, tbe community
would not have in its midst one olf.-nder
of that sort where it now lias a hundred.
We copy the foregoing as an evidence
of the demoralizing inflfn-nce of the pres
eiit civil war. 1 he II raid is one pi the
Union saving journal of this Stale,
troubles itself almost unceasingly about
the loyalty of the Express. It was one
o( the loudest bawlcrs for the enforcement
of the laws and the preservation of the
(’onstituti n. Hut it has veered around
with the Administration, keeping pace
w ith it and- adapting its steps to the mu
sic of the President. It ceased to speak
of the necessity of preserving the Consti
tuti"fi, and endorse 1 all the unconstitu
tional acts of the President on the ple» of
necessity. Ol e -orsc there was but one
other step to be taken, and that was to
repudiate law. This it !m» pretty tn-arlv
accomplished, as the foregoing will de
monstrate. Idle editor thinks the State
was better o!f without law than with it,
at 1- ast, in tbe in-tunce above recited.
A tew days a g rm intelligent Republican
remarked to us that lit- felt alarmed at the
evident dec .racy of the times; that the
people se-.oied to have lost their love tor
fii i- g v n..-it. We could not with

In a had W w.—The Alta, which in

as before the conduct of Watrons was ex
posed, has - ,t into a mitf, and boils over
with righteous indignation thus:
“To elect representatives to the Legis
lature is to license certain men to prey
upon us. All that is going on about
laws and regulations is only a blind.
The real function of the Legislature is to
absotli $IO.oOO every week, and disgorge
it afterwards in the bar-rooms and board

! Public Meeting In Vpper Pleeerrlll*.
At a meeting of the citizens of Upper Pla

pith, 1803, McK. Burton was called to the
Chair, and H. C. Elder chosen Secretary.
Mr. Horton, on taking the chair, (aid the
object of ihe meeting was to consider the pro
priety of Upper Placerrille uniting with Lower
Plucerville under a consolidated goverinntntof
some kind, to assist in the construction of a
railroad from Folsom to the City of Flaccrville.
Mr. G. W. Swan being present, was called
upon, and addressed the meeting on the impor
tance of the railroad and the necessity of the
aid of the City to seomnpliah its construction.
The meeting was also addressed by C. W.
Brewster »rul
It was moved by C. Vfb Brewster that a
committee of three be appointed to confer with
the El Dorado Delegation at .Sacramento, and
instruct them to frame a bill incorporating Up
per Placerrille with the present City, taiing
the property of Upper Placerrille for railroad
purposes only, and not for municipal; provided,
however, such an arrangement cannot be made,
then it is the seuse of this meeting that Upper
Plucerville shall he.consolidated with Lower
Flaccrville under 0"e city government.
The motion prevailed’by an overwhelming
majority.

Diamonds in Aistkaua.—They have
found diamonds in Australia. The fol
lowing items in relation thereto are taken
from the Sydney Herald :
Some more Oven diamonds have been
found. The Constitution has the follow
ing n lative to the occurrence : We have
to-day the pleasing task of recording the
discovery of two more diamonds in a
creek about three miles from Ileckworth.
The creek rises at Woorragee, and is
known as Young's Creek. They were
found by a party of miners, known a«
Jordon's party, w ho were working for tin
about the distance of a half a mile above
the bridge on the Chiltcrn road. IJoth
are well formed, and one a beautiful crys
ml. The first diamond was found by ac
cident; win n one of the party w as pass
ing''ntf the deposit left in the sluice-box,
his attention was attracted bj - a sparkle
in the ground, which, upon closer exami
nation, proved to he a diamond of the
first wat r, being the purest yet found in
this district. This led the men to look
for them, when shortly afterwards they
discovered a second, and appear to think
that, with careful washing, plenty may
he found. We- have no doubt that, with
a plentiful supply of cheap labor, another
valuable addition could be made to our
resources in the shape of diamonds.
The oven district is not to blue cxclu
sive credit of being a diamond producing
district, as will be seen by the follow ing
paragraph, extracted from the Portland
Guardian: It is stated on reliable au
thority that diamonds have been very
lately found in this district. We are in
formed of two having been pieke I up on
Mr. Carmichael's run ut Cnstcrton. One
of those has been sold, so the report goes,
f >r £-10, and the other is in possession of
Mr. Murray, Dunrobin stat on. The Coal
Search Committee are making further in
quires in the matter, and we hope to
h -ar of tin; report being duly authenti
eated. Tile truth of such a report would
give an immense impetus to tt.e prosperi
ty of this district.

Siti’oht the Ntutto. — It is not general
ly known, but white men ought to know
it, that there is a law, passed by the pres
ent Abolition Congress and signed by
PicsiJent Lincoln, requiring the Quarter
master's Dcj artment to issue supplies to
tunaway n..-gro s, whether they work or
not. They are enticed away from their
masters and fed at the public expense,
ami white men are taxed to pay the bill.
Will some of the Abolition worthies in
the Legislature, who indorsed, in indecent
haste, the President's infamous emanci
pation proclamation, point out the law
providing for the support of the poor
white man, or even the wives and chil
dren of the soldiers engaged in the war ?
No such law is to be found. The end of
the present Abolition Congtess is near
and when it expires all while men should
tejoioe. Since its first meeting it has
■ 1 .r.e tu'thi'.g but legislate for the negro
and i p| i css u bite men.

Anncai. Ext'KNses. —The annual ex
p'-'e-, s --f the city of New York, last year,
amounted to nearly $7,UOU,OuO, which i~
more than half the current expenses ol
the w hole Cn ted States Government, be
fore the rebellion. The taxable property
of that city has diminished during the
last year, iu valuation, 310,000,000.
Or course the General Assembly of
Kentucky, while protesting against the
proclamation of emancipation in the re
hellions States and parts of States, will
not omit to protest with equal solemnity
against the proclamation of martial law
throughout the loyal States. Governor
Robinson's recommendation that there he
“a soli mil rc-attinuatioii of the great truth
that in all free governments the military
is and must be subject to the civil author
ity,” and that there he a like re-affirmation
of “the great principles of American lib
erty” in general, covers both proclama
tions alike, a< it clearly was designed to
do. And so unquestionably will the pro
test as adopted by the Legislature.
The assumption of power involved in
the proclamation of martial law through
out the loyal States is on every account a
point too vital to he overlooked. The
great conservative States of the North
have unequivocally condemned both proc
lamations. And most fitly as well as un
equivocally. Let Kentucky stand with
these States hand in hand and shoulder
to shoulder. Such indeed is her manifest
purpose. —[f.ontsvillr Journal.
Rki.eared.— The city council of Gale
na, Illinois, passed resolutions calling
upon Gov. Yates to demand the release of
Madison Y. Johnson and David Shcenan,
two of Secretary Stanton’s political pris
oners from that town. Gov. Yates did
so, and the prisoners have been released.
Yates, like Gov. Curtin, of Pennsylvania,
perceiving that the people would no
longer permit illegal arrests, makes a vir
tue of necessity and declares them unjus
tifiable and at war with the genius of our
institutions. Elections sometimes cause
politicians to change their opinions sud
denly.

ployed for one hundred and sixty-eight
