Tn Fucnmu Rotrr*.—For a long time pinillwt and systematic effort! have been ■Ida bjr lataraatad part iet—stage proprietors, Mtl keepers and rued and bridge owners—to dirert the traveling public from the road lead lag from Plaeervill* to Nevada Territory—the •Mjr road that eaa be safely, speedily comfor tably traveled in tbe winter months. They kabitaally misrepresent it and, by gross and in' excusable deception, induce travelers tn try rt ral routes. Straagers have been frequently imposed epos by their false statements. The Virginia City papers, for some unaccountable reason, have never been favorable to our route, al tboagh they are often dependent upon it for their exchangee, letters, Ac. When other rnataa an dosed—ours hat not been fur sev eral yearn —they never mentinu the fact; w hen tbe stages on our route are detained an hour or two they eagerly spread tbe nears before their readers. During tbo past wiuler the sta ge* on the Placerville route made regular tripe—on other routes they did and could not. This is aa indisputable fact. Passengers a bn lad Virginia City via Uenness Pass on Tues day morning, tbe 17th instnnt, arrived at Fol som on Sunday morning the 22d. They tvere flea and a half days on the road, and were obliged to work night atoi day to get through The snow was deep, tbe roads blocked up and the stock barely able to get through with an ampty coach. We state these facts for the ben efit of tbe public and to prevent imposition in tba future. CaaotTASL*.—In 1853 the debt of tbe City of Plaearville, amounting tn|!8,417 49, was fund ed, for which bonds were isued, bearing ten par cant, interest, and payable in five annual instalment*. Tbe last of the bonds, including tba interest, amounting to 40, were not doe until the first of next June. The bonds wers isftntd under the Administration of May or Goo. F.

On Mooday last be redeemed the lust of them, amounting to, including interest, $2,3>4 45,— redeemed them, not in greenback*, but >n goid, tbe M constitutional currency” of the country. To bis energy and prudence, in a gr-.at meas ure, ie due the extinguishment of the debt. At tbe time they were issued croakers predict ed they would not be paid, and parties took them with reluctuncc, at the solicitation of the Mayor, who was willing to pledge his credit far tbeir payment. That the}' were redeemed before due, and in gold, is creditable to him end the City of Placcrrille.

Tkl DtnmtMiili. Every men wfco oppose* the ruinous policy, or question* tb* ability, or cen sure* the despotic conduct of the Admin istration, is denounced by it* leaders, sup porters and minions ta a disunionist. It is dialoyal in tbe eyes of these immaculate unionists, for a party to maintain (he Constitution and to advocate a restoration of the Union. They have no respect fur the Constitution, no love for the Union formed by the patriots of the Revolution. We are devotedly attached to that Union, and for insisting on its reconstruction *c are denounced by the hirelings of the par ty in power as traitors. Who erer (ho t that a party would rise in our country and control its destiny, that would call it “ treason” to love and defend the old Union? That Union which our fathers formed, Beecher says “ was the incarna' tion of injustice”; Stevens says, “ shall never be restored"; Wade says, “was a burning disgrace”, and Phillips boa.-ts that “ for twenty years he has labored to break up” and Tvywceft 'hat h<*. has sup, cceded. These aro the representative men of the Abolitionized Republican par ty ; they dictate tho policy of the Admin islralion and control its appointments. They hope to silence all opposition to their policy by stigmatizing their oppo nents as “ traitors." It isashallow trick, w as once formidable hut is now powerless. The proceedings of Congress have open ed the eyes of the people, exposed the trick, and exhibited the traitors in their (rue light. A brief reference to the pro ceedings of Congress will show who are the disunionists. The patriotic, aide and fearless Vullandigham recently offered in Congress resolutions “ that the Union must ho preserved indivisible ; that any person advising peace on any other terms should be held guilty of a high crime ; that the Government ran never permit foreign intervention; that the war is wa ged in no spirit of oppression, but lor the equal rights of the Slat s and the main tenance of the Union ; that the revolu tionary scheme of extinguishing Stato laws and turning States hack to Territo ries should not he tolerated ; that a dicta torship should be spurned ; that the pres ervation of the Constitution, the Union and the liberties of the people, should be the object kept in view." Is there a dis loyal, a disunion sentiment in the above ? —anything thut the people would not ap prove ?—anything at war with the genius of our institutions ? How were the res olutions received? They were voted down by the House, by a vote of 75 Abo litionists against 5d Democrats in their favor. Why were they obnoxious to the Abolitionists? Because they declared " that tho Union must be preserved indi visible; that a dictatorship should be spurned ; and that the preservation of the Constitution, the Union, and the liberties of the people should be the object kept in view.” Their votes in Congress, like their acts everywhere and under all circum stances, prove their disunion feeling and purposes. They could not indorse the resolutions without rebuking the Admin istration— w ithout condemning their own acts and votes—without demoralizing their own party. They placed party above “the Constitution, the Union, and the liberties of the people," and plainly indi cated by their votes that they desired a dissolution of the Union, would willingly rob the people of their liberties and gladly welcome a dictator. They want a strong, an aristocratic, a despotic Government— a Government which will deprive the people of their liberties and permanently keep in power a dictator and his friends. The old Union was too liberal for them; it conferred too much power upon the people; it protected their rights and lib erties; it tolerated no proscription for dif ference of opinion; it made the military subordinate to the civil power; it respect ed freedom of s; eech and freedom of the press; and therefore the supporters of a dictatorship are opposed to its restoration ami aro working for its destruction; therefore they voted against and defeated Vallundigham’s patriotic resolutions. “ Happy Day." —The Boston Common wealth, a leading Republican paper of en lightened and refined Massachusetts, thus joyfully alludes to the President's procla mation : “ There will come a time when the two races—white and Mark—-will h«-astdmr ouglily mingled, and as much on a level, as the Saxons anil Romans of England ; and the President's proclamation, faith fully carried out, will hasten that not dis tant and happy day !” Here is amalgamation distinctly avow ed by a recognized and influential organ of the Republican party. What a glori ous future is revealed to the view of the sensitive indorsers of the proclamation in our State Legislature ! How encourag ing, to be assured, by one of their own sort, that in a short time they will be on a level with their “ cullcrcd” allies! TiiePkesident’s Dcpucitv. — President Lincoln assured the people that the war should be prosecuted solely to “ preserve the Union and maintain the Constitu tion," that “ he had no right to intcrferc wilh tiie domestic institutions of the South, and ho certainly had no desire to do so," and at hissuggestion Congress de clared that the war was to be waged, not to subjugate the South or to emancipate the slaves, but solely to preserve the in tegrity of the Union. By these declara tions and pledges he obtained a gigantic army, and when it was no longer neces sary to practice deceit lie threw aside the disguise and stepped forth as the cham pion of the emancipation doctrine. Jkrrt Scllivak, of Saii Francisco, has our thanks for copies of tbe London Index and other papers for which he is agent. 'Abolition Gbstcrals.— The Adminis tration has #t last thrown off its Union mask, wklch it has so long worn un graeefully. It no longer professes to prosecute the war “ to maintain the Con stitution ond preserve the Union’; no longer promises not to interfere with the “established rights or domestic institu tions of the States”; no longer denies that it has entered open an abolition crusade i no longer conceals its intense and relent less hatred of the Southern people ; no longer pretend" v- V by the Cudiiitution and laws. Its organs exult ingly declare that the “ Constitution as it is” is a humbug, and that the President is above it; that as Coimuander-in-Chief of the army and navy he has power to issue edicts nullifying Constitutions and laws; and that the military, with the President at its head, is “ superior to,and independent of, the civil power.” At a late Abolition caucus in Washington the speakers mine out boldly and claimed that it is time, as thei patty is gjiJtjdd i responsible for '.he war, to assume its dl l’ rection. Senator Sherman declared that “ tint Administration must depend upon the Republican party for success.” Sen ator Trumbull ridiculed the idea of there being any “ loyal Democrats,” and said tru!v they aie “ no longer Democrats when they support the Administration.” Usher, Secretary of the Interior, an Abo lition paupir living oil' of public charity, went a step further, and said, “we should stand by the President. The Democratic party is no longer the friend of the light ing North. We must put the knife to the throats of traitors”—to Democrats. He believed the Democratic party disloyal, and he advised the Republicans “ to de nounce and then hang them.” A fellow l>y the Mime of Uoocl), of Massachusetts, “had no confidence in any tnan who did not give an earnest and cordial support to the Administration. lie had no confi dence in men who profess, d to be loyal Democrats, and who try to weaken the President and the Adminisfation.” Ev ery one of tiic speakers placed the Presi dent, his Administration and the Republi can party above the Constitution, the laws and the Union. They carefully avoided speaking about the Constitution, and only mentioned the country incident ally ; the Administration, and thu perma nency and success of the Republican [.ar ty was the burden of their song. Repub licans who indorsed the Administration folly And unreservedly must he placed in command of the armies,—all otlieis must he teuioved. This in all right, if no thing will satisfy them hut an Abolition Cabinet and Abolition Generals, p ihaps it will he inure satisfactory to have only Abolition privates. Abolitionism should not only assume the direction of the war, but its rinks, its disasters and disgrace.— If Democratic officers are considered dis loyal and untrustworthy on account of their politics, Democratic privates must he placed in the same category. If the radicals carry out their programme there will soon be but few privates for Aboli tion officers to command, for it is a noto rious fact that the army is mostly com posed of “ loyal Democrats.” Abolition ists have too much regard for their pre cious persons to expose themselves to danger. - -*-♦• » ► ■ ■ Tiik Pkesidkst a no uts Chines.—The Washington correspondent of the Spring field (Mass.)

Morn: Rascality. —A w riter in the New York Times states that the four steam sloops of war recently built, are utter failures. The building was a fat job, giv. cn to Abolitionists as a reward for their services, and llio result a disgraceful failure. Common Council Proceeding*. Placrrville, Ftb. 19th, 186.3.

CHUBBUCK, City Clerk. - - . - Flattekiso.— The New York Tribune is telling some wholesome but disparaging truths about Mr. Lincoln. Greeley plain ly intimates that the President is vain, weak and self-willed ; that be mistakes stubbornness for firmness ; and the Wash ington correspondent of the S. F. Bulletin rudely says, “a piece of animated putty occupies the Executive chair.” If Lin coln’s friends tell the truth the American people huve just reason to blush for their Chief Magistrate. Question. —If the President can legally abolish slavery in the Southern States, cannot he legally establish it in the Northern States? Will some Abolitionist answer? Taxinu Til* PtoM.* TO Pat ro* N*- GI10F.S. — This seems to be *n unpopular raca-ure even among the supporters of the Administration. The Abolitionist* are willing to vote the negro free, but are unwilling to pay for hi* freedom. Ibe laboring men of the free States, who are sacrificed for the benefit of the worthless blacks of the South, arc becoming restive and are arraying themselves against the party in power. Speaking of the infa mous emancipation proclamation, the Hartford (Conn.) Times says: “Now that the President, casting to tV.i T'’’ -- * all regard for his oath, as well as all con sistency, has thrown off all further show of prosecuting the war for the restoration of the Union, and openly proclaimed it a John Brown raid on a gigantic scale, the Country is permitted to see the workings of this ruinous ci usadc, and to obtain a glimpse of whaf js in store for our tax riden people in the future. Mr. Lincoln’s supporters in Congress have voted ten e* "MU it*--' r AoslaJment, to pay for negroes in Missouri alone I Ten 1 minion dollars—one-sixth of the entire expenses of the United States Govern ment, in better times, when the coun try was at peace, the Constitution obeyed, and Imnoty ruled at Washington. And this is but the beginning of the job, to ‘aid emancipation in Missouri.' Other States are to come. And for this object of buying in grots and carrying on a negro war, our people are taxed as no people in Europe arc taxed. Is it strange that they are tirid of war, desire peace and are cursing the Abolitionized Repub lican party?” Three Negroes fok Three Sheep.— The gallant Federal soldiers in the army of tho Rappahannock treat Mr. Lincoln's emancipation proclamation with the ut most contempt. They are not to be tri lled with, nor will they permit the Presi dent, i»y proclamation, to degrade them in the eyes of their countrymen. An ar my correspondent at Fulmouth says, that a number of the Federal soldiers, a few clays since, took three conti abands across the Rappahannock into tho rebel lines, and traded them off with the rebel sol dii rr, f ir three sheep. The arrangements f >r the trade had been previously made with the rebel pickets. The Federal sol dier-. told the rebels that they would btiinr iliem more negroes at the same rate — a i-heep for a negro. The soldiers who did the trading arc members of New York and New Jersey Regiments, and openly declared their hostility 10 the policy of the Abolitionists. Trouble is anticipated on account of their opposition to the Presi dent's proclamation. Leoisi.ative—On Tuesday Senator Harvey introduced a bill in the Senate for " an act to amend an act in relation to public roads in the county of El Dora do, and the road fund of said county." What its, provisions arc we are unable to state, not having received a copy of the bill. In the Hou-e, Mr. Sanderson “pre sented a petition from citizens of El Do rado county, asking for the relief of D. W. Stamford, a Deputy Tax Collector, for the loss of $2,000 Chinese poll lax, stolen from a sifo in El Dorado.” If every man who has money stolen from him gets relief from the Legislature, the State will soon be bankrupt. Mr. San derson introduced a bill for bis relief; and also for “ an act to amend the civil Practice Act." Mr. Baker, who contested the seat of Mr. Freeman, of Tulare, with drew from the contest, and the House, by a unanimous vote, adopted a resolution declaring the latter entitled to his scat. Not Much to Hoff, fok is the Future —Ne-arly two years of radical rule have left men hide scope for congratulation-not much to hope for in the future of freedom. The* uccessiiy that is claimed to authorize tlie aggressions of to day may be called up to justify the despotism of to-morrow ; and there is no limit to the incursions of arbitrary power. The first invasion of constitutional laev is the knell of freedom. Because men have not been sufficiently alive to danger, and watchful enough of their rights, is the reason w hy the world has dragged out centuries in chains, and the glories of freemen have been trampled in the dust. By permitting the Admin istration to deprive us of our liberties, without word of remonstrance or effort to maintain them, we rivet the chains of bondage upon those who are to come af ter us. We show ourselves unworthy the priceless hciitage bequeathed to us by our patriotic fathers. Radiealicalism must be put down, or we must make up our minds to surrender our liberties to arbitrary rulers, who respect no law and tolerate no opposition to their unbridled passions. Ibis is the only alternative left to American freemen. Appointment.— The President has ap. pointed Chief Justice Field, of our Su preme Court, to the position of U. S. Cir cuit Judge for California, to fill the va cancy occasioned by the resignation of Judge McAllister. He was recommended by our entire Congressional delegation Judge F’ield is a “speculating politician," and always makes his principles conform with those of the dominant party. The Bkodehick Monument Ceremonies. — Me learn from the San Francisco pa pers that there was a large number of persons who witnessed and participated in the ceremonies of laying the corner stone of the Broderick Monument, at the Lone Mmiutain Cymetary, on Monday af ternoon. The ceremonies were solemn and impressive. Hon. Nathan Porter de livered a feeling and appropriate address, and Governor Stanford laid the corner stone. Many of the members of tbe Leg islature were present. Feeding Negroes and Driving Sol diers iwio the Poor House.—UUr foci, u disgraceful ss notorious, Ihst ibo Fed eral Administration is eugsged in dirart ing-the public money to feuding end cloth ing the tens of thousands of negroes who haed' been enticed or stolen from their masters. The District of Columbia is filled with idle and vicious contrabands, supported by the Administration at the expense of the tax-payers. For their benefit and comfort Congress has made liberal appropriations, and supplied their - - - • ' * „ attended to the neces sities of the soldiers. Bills for the relief ol negroes receive prompt attention bills for the relief of white men are re jected. Instances are occurring where this heartless neglect is driving soldiers into the common poor house, and making their families paupers. This is strong language; is it true ? The follow ing con fession of Senator Wilson, of Massachu setts, made recently on the floor of the Senate, is opr tmtver. It comes from a leader of the Republican party, a sup porter anti admirer vT itt* A«to/iw»tratii>», and bears on its face eridence of sincerity: “ Mr. Wilsqji reported back House Joint Resolution, for the payment of sol diers and sailors, with an amendment au thorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to issue §00,000.000 in demand notes, in ad dition to the amount authorized by the act ol 1862. “ Mr. Fessenden moved to refer the res olution to committee on finance. “Mr. Wilson had no objection, but thought it was high time our soldiers were paid. Many of them have been waiting for months, and some of them bed gone into the poor house, and their fami lies were paupers because they had not been paid as promptly as they should have been. Many have deserted through solicitude for their families. He thought the Government ought to furnish means to pay these men immediately. The bill was referred to the committee on finance.” - -4 D — Rkvh.ees ok the Union.— The shallow’ and boisterous Beecher, who, in the be ginning, dared the South to fight, now exults that the Government is at an end- Henceforth, he says, “ We shall have the Union : not as it was—for that was the incarnation of injustice, infringement on your rights anj mine—but the Union as it was meant to be." “ Nobody cares w hether it is constitutional or not,” says the New York Times, speaking ol the President’s emancipation proclamation.— “ The liberties of the citizen are of subor dinate importance,” says Senator Wilson. What trust can be placed in men so in different of right and wrong as these par tisans avow themselves to be? What care they fur the Union? The man who counsels or defends a breach ol the Con stitution is a traitor. Ail these men couns-l and defend the ulmo-t daily viola tion of the Constitution. For tin ,»e men to accuse their opponents of disloyalty, is like Judas preaching fidelity to the faith ful eleven I Men of California, mark and repudiate the followers of the Abolition traitors. - ■ ■ —* ♦ • ♦ » ■■ i ■ Union Savers — The Bo-ton Common wealth, the home organ of Senators Sum ner and Wilson, and a warm supporter of the Administration, thus Nnceringly al ludes to the perpetuity of the Union and our form of government : “ Rather than see slavery reappear in our National Congress, we would njoice in seeing not one stone left upon another of this proud fabric, which was reared, like Dahomey’s throne, on skulls." How contemptuously the vile Abolition traitor speaks ofFgovernment formed by the patriotic sages of the Revolution, the founders of our once happy and respecta ble but now unfortunate and disgraced Republic. The editor of the Common wealth utters the true sentiments of the Abolit'on party. Ntw Englanders Trading wrru the Rebeis. —It has been ascertained by the Government, says a New York paper that parties in New England have been extensively engaged in manufacturing and selling to the rebels shoes and other goods, which are shipped first to Canaria and thence to Nassau, where they are reship ped in small vessels to rup the blockade. Thus it appears that the New Englanders are making money out of the war front both sides of the lines. This the great West knows and it has caused her to com plain. She is taxed exorbitantly and her markets are destroyed and her finances ruined In txanGfil 4 -j * AA..AA yet these speculators and traitors have been loud in their professions of “loyaltv,” and in their demands for the punishment of Democrats who have stood firmly for the principles of the Constitution and the Uuion. All a traitor Abolitionist has to do to escape punishment for his crimes, is to support the Administration. CITY ORDINANCE. No. 147.
