TUI OITY AND OOVNT'V.
Stloxdid Won OF Art.— On Monday and
Tnaaday evening* of next week, our eititena
will kart an opportunity nf taring, at O'Don
ntU’o Theater, the fineat painting rrer exhi.
bvted on the Pacific const. The ptpera every
where ate a litre jt fD jrlowinjr language. It ia
the London Atamotcome and must tint be con
fensdad wilt- Vet; -y.n —?*ui&-
cent painting, but inferior, in fullneu, fresh
naoa, richnraa and accuracy to the Stereoacnme.
It oontaina 150 Tieura of noted placet, each
covering a anyface of 300 feet Seeing the
paioting alone ia fully north the price of ad
mitaion, bat in addition the proprietor will dis
tribute among bii patrona, each ereniug, rich,
rare and beautiful preaenta.
Ricoxt Discoviuics.— The copper fever rn
get at fiercely a* ever, and prospecting parlies
ore wandering about in all direcTinns in search
ofaew leads. Specimens, rich and beautiful,
sro “ lying around loose" in stores and sa
loons, and stockholders and speculators are
doieg so immense business intruding. “ In
dications” ore plentiful, leads abundant and
capitalists eager to inrest a her. they have as
surances of a “dead thing.” A number of
companies bare recently been organized in our
city, which hare employed a number of men
to prospect, and some of thojn have struck
lodes which are both large anj rich. Fair
prices hare been offered and refused for shares
in several of them in this neighborhood; and
stockholders in the Fairplay Company, »>
much confidence have they in their .lode, de
cline to sell at any price. Our Fairplay cor
rsopoodsnt, under date of the 30th u It., says:
“Hew surface diggings were struck u day or
two ago about one mile East of this place, in
Mahals Gulch, by n German named Laolz.
He took oat, in two days' work, with a com
mon rocker, a little over one hundred dollars ;
—one lump weighing three ounces. The gold
is coarse and pure. This discovery caused
something of a stampede among the miners
here, and in a short time a number of claims
were staked off. In a few days 1 hope to be
able to give you something more delinile from
the new diggings. The Fairplay Gold, S.Irel
and Copper Mining Company is at work ta
king out rich ore, a specimen of which I send
you. Specimens, taken out promiscuously,
hare been assayed, and found rich in gold, sil
ver and copper; more silver than gold, and
more copper than either. Shares are not for
sale in this company. The lode is about three
feet in thickness, at a depth of seventeen feet.
It ia located on the Middle Fork of the Cosmn
lita Hirer, four miles Northeast of ibis place.
The Lenox Company is located on Slog Gulch
three miles from this place in the same direc
tion. Silver Hill and Uncle Sam claims are
two miles East of this place. The Jeff Davis
claims are located about one mile Southwest of
Indian Diggings. The Copper Hill clsim is
located Ibrec milles West of the same place.
Another lead, discovered a few days ago, ab -tit
two miles West of this place, prospects as well
and promises to be as valuable, us the Fair
play claim. It is rich in silver nod copper, hut
the vein is not us thick as the other. It is
-called the 76 Company. We have lively times
up here, and if claims pay, this must
soon become the most populous and wealthy as
it has always been the most Democratic and
patriotic part of our county.”
Correa in Cold Hi-hind District.—Some
day*ago. Col. W. W. Swadley, of Atna.Hr
county, discovered wbat promises to be a val
uable copper lead, about three miles west of
thil place, near Cold Springs. This sturted
the Cold Springs boys, and a correspondent
writes us that three distinct and large leads
hare since been discovered in the Hat, shout
u half-mile below the tow n, —the largest and
richest of the three by Col. Swadley. He has
named it " The Eureka Lead.” The Starkey
lead, said to be as rich us any at Copperopulis,
is in the Mound Spring District, sad stock
holders are indifferent about selling shares.—
There is no mistake about its richness. The
Wellington lead, in the Placerville District,
opens splendidly, sod the Figucru, Gen. Grant
sod Knight,'* sre all being worked sod look
well. These recent discoveries have,in a meas
ure, checked emigration from ourcounty to the
Eastern slope, and given emph-vment toa large
number of miners. We hope they will all
prove valuable.
Spri.voir, of the Amador Ledger, pui-1 us a
visit during the past week, lie looks well-fed
and rosy, and has increased in girth considera
bly since the last time we put him through the
furniture exercise, for negligent rolling, when
we were educating him in the ” an preserva
tive,” at Louisville. By dint of careful train
ing and frequent applications of furniture, we
succeeded in makiug l.im a skillful printer
but iu our attempts to cultivate his nr-ruls we
totally failed—his native depravity was too
much for us. We trust tlmt n just and uierri
fttl Providence may yet bring him to see the
evil of his ways aud turn his heart to Democra
cy before he dies, for we should grieve to feel
that our oldest “ cub" was eternally lost.
At Cost.— Chas. B. Pettit, south side of
Main slreet, advertises tlial he will sell at San
Francisco cobI, the large slock nf dry goods,
clothing, bools and shoes, huts, furnishing
goods, etc., recently purchased by hint of the
creditors of t’ugwin A Co. The stock is large
and varied, containing good goods.
Wit are indebted to Wells, Fargo A Co., K.
S. Hernandez, and Bradshaw A On., for nu
merous newspaper favors during the week.
Mislaid. —We regret that wo have mislaid
the letter of our Pleasant Valley cortespondent,
11 Croppings,” which will uccouut for its non
appearance in to-day's issue. Our correspon
dent stated, we recollect, that some copper and
silver lodes had been discovered in that vicin

prising firm ol'S. A J. Fleming had hit,It a line
toll road, connecting with the Ogilby grade.

Court or Ssssions.— On Saturday last, 18 of
the Italians indicted for riot were tried and con

Seventeen of them were sentenord to pav a tine

dollars each. Court adjourned uutil to-day. "
Another Call.—Gen. Colton, Chair
man of the *• Union Democratic State
Central Committee,” has issued a cull for
a meeting of that Committee in San Fran
“Vo, on Wednesday, the l.'itli in-dant.
But Twu Ptrlltt.
There can bo but two parties in the
coming election —the Democratic and the
Abolition—end men must take sides with
one or the other. “ Armed neutrality”
will not do at this momentous crisis of
our country's history ; no true American
can be an indifferent spectator of the
contest—a conteat in which is involved
not only the integrity of the Union but
the liberties of the white race. The
A ' vyvfr stands pledged to the
“ Constitution as it is and the Union as
it was;” the Abolition party has vieluted
the one and seeks to destroy the other.
The Democratic party holds that 11 this
Government was made on the white ba
sis, by white men, for the benefit of
white men and their posterity forever
the Abolition party holds that negroes
are as good as white men, and are enti
tled to all the righis, privileges and bene
ms oi white men. The Denuv_ ysA'ty
favor* the elevation of ‘.ho white race ;
the Abolition parjy is trying to degrade
it and eluvatc the black. The Abolition
ists in Congress and in our State Legisla
ture have legislated almost exclusively
fo the negroes—the Democrats for the
whites. The proceedings of the late Con
gress and our present Legislature prove
this. Bills for the relief and for the ben
efit of white nten were introduced into
Congress by Democrats and indefinitely
postponed by the Abolitionists ; and the
Abolitionists of our Legislature, under
the lead of Warwick, Fitch, Smith Gas
kell, Perkins and Sanderson, arc follow
ing the bright example of their Con
gressional superiors. Sanderson, in his
blind devotion to Abolitionism, lias al
lowed his prejudices to overcome his
judgment, and has introduced and sup
ported hills which he knows to bo clearly
unconstitutional and supremely ridicu
lous and w holly partisan. He seetns to
take a malignant pleasure in getting up
bills to persecute his former supporters,
and, in doing so, sinks the lawyer in the
fanatic.
With which party will loyal men
unite? With the party that “carries
the Hag and keeps step to the music of
the Union”—the Union which our fa
thers formed ? With the party that
holds that the interests of the white are
superior to the black race? With the
party that objects to taxing the people to
purchase, feed and clothe the slaves of the
South? With the party that opposes the
emancipation proclamation, negro testi
mony bills and arbitrary arrests? With
the party that has always obeyed the
laws, respected the Constitution and
made our country the glory of the world ?
Or w ith the miserable Abolition traitors
who have, at first covertly, then openly,
always persistently, labored to destroy
the Union? There is no middle ground.
Men are cither Democrats or Abolitionists
—either opponents or supporters of the
Federal Administration—nn Administra
tion known to be under the control of
the worst Abolitionists of the country—
Abolitionists who have publicly declared
that they “ preferred the Chicago Plat
form to fifty Unionsthat the “ old
Union was the incarnation of injustice,"
“a covenant with death and a league
with helland that they are not for the
Union as it was, but a “Union as it
ought to he!”—a Union in which the ne
groes shall be on an equality with white
men. The Union that Washington,
Hamilton, Adams, JetFetson mid Madison
formed; the Union that Jackson, Clay,
Webster and Wright respected and loved,
is good enough fur Democrats. They
want no better, desire “ no change, least
of all such change as” Abolitionists wisli
to introduce.
■ ■ ■■■ « ♦
Tut Treaty with Liberia. —It is not
i generally known that the treaty our
“ Executive Government” lately made
with the negro Republic of Liberia, pro
vides that “ Liberians (full blooded ne
groes) coming into the United States,
shall enjoy all the rights and privileges
} which are or may be granted to any
other foreigners, subjects or citizens of
the most favored nation." This at once
places the African negroes upon a level
with the Irish and German and French
and other respectable emigrants, and en
titles them to letters of naturalization.
Thus our new “ Executive Government”
slowly unfolds its policy, and has hired
things, in the shape of men, to indorse
its policy. Having decreed all the ne
groes of this country the equals of white
men, it now extends the privilege to all
Africans. A worthless negro from Li
beria lakes precedence of a white, free
born American at the public receptions
of the President of the United States!
How immeasurably, as far as in bis
power, has Abe Lincoln degraded the
American name arid character.
Goon Amendments.— The New Hamp
shire Democrat says, wc would like to
prepare a couple of amendments to the
Conscription law; 1st, that it shall not
take effect till Gov. Andrew’s “ swarms"
and Greeley’s “ nine hundred thousand”
have volunteered ; 2d, that those who
think it is their duty to fight for negro
freedom, shall have a chance before
those w ho are not thus exercised arc con
scripted. Pity such amendments were
ruled out of order by the President of
the Senate. .
-*-♦ ► —
Complimentary to Lincoln. —The
Louisville Journal says that “ if Mr Lin
coln, gazing abroad throughout the whole
country that he was elected to preside
over, does not regret his election more
than almost any other man in the nation,
bitterly as millions regret it, be must be
almost the weakest or worst man in the
nation,"
1 Why Don’t they Go* —Some people
are amazingly free with other people's
blood. Wa have thousands of men in
this State who go for " putting down the
rebellion if it takes the last drop ol
blood,” but who are very careful to not
expose the first drop. Reader, you know
many such braggarts. Our Legislature
is filled with them—Abolition papers are
owned, conducted and edited by them.
It is not necessary to naino the cowardly
scamps. Many ot these men can better
be spared than thousands who have gone
and died; yet, while they are still clam
orous for more men, while our regiments
are not near full, while the Administra
tion is about to resort to conscription to
replenish its exhausted armies, these men
do not consider that the appeal is to them,
but shout themselves hoarse in appeals to
others, whose lives are quite as dear to
themselves and valuable to the world, as
/theirs. Wny don’t they go ? especially
as they profess to love tlje character and
purpose of the war. fs it patriotism
or courage they lack ? By refusing to
eidist they prove themselves cowards or
hypocrites, and such fellows compose the
present Legislature—a Legislature of ne
gro idolaters.
Wakxino. — If it conics to be under
stood that the views and policy of Messrs.
1 Sumner, Greeley, Wendell Phillips, Ward
Beecher, &c., dec., obtain in tbc conduct
of the war, it will result in the destruc
tion of our Government and Union, and a
triumph for Rebellion and Slavery.
So says Tlmrlow Weed, the late able
editor of the Albany Kvening Journal,
the politician who did more than any
other politician to secure Mr. Lincoln's
election. We know he speaks the truth ;
every intelligent Republican knows as
much ; yet the office-seekers and hire
lings of that party prefer to sacrifice coun
try rather than place and emolument.
Weed has always been a violent oppo
nent of the Democratic party, yet to save
tiie Union and Government from destruc
tion, he finds it absolutely necessary to
unite with that party. Is it not a stri
king and convincing evidence of thejiurity
and patriotism and w isdom of the Demo
cratic party' when its oldest and ablest
opponents are forced to join its ranks to
save the country from ruin ?
Ilmimui.B. —It is stated, on the author
ity of the Chicago Tribune, a rampant
Abolition sheet, which seems to rejoice
over the fact, that since the establishment
of Camp Douglas six hundred and forty
bodies of rebel soldiers have been buried
in Potter’s Field, at that city—tbc most
of them having frozen to death. Had
they been negroes they would have been
well taken care of and supplied with all
the necessaries and some of the luxuries
of life.
What Constitutes a Rebei. and a
Traitor.— The St. Joseph (Mo.) Herald,
a violent abolition concern, started by an
Administration and edited by the Iowa
army officer, says:
“ When we hear an individual assert
that the war must be carried on accord
ing to the Constitution of the United
States, we wish to hear no further expres
sion of his opinion. He is a rebel.”
What a quantity of traitors and rebels
tlie.e must he, and how rapidly they arc
increasing ! Abolitionists think all men
who stand up for the Constitution of the
United States ought to' be hung or shot.’
Outside of the Abolition party there are
no loyal men! This comes with good
grace from men who have for years
prayed for a dissolution of the Union,
and insulted our national (lag by erasing
the stars and stripes from it, making it a
sectional rag !
»
Noticeable Fact.— It is a noticeable
fact that no less than three of the Briga
diers who solved as part of the court
which found Major General Porter guilty,
have since been made Major Generals.
They are all Abolitionists of the radical
school—all maligners of Gen. McClellan.
Abuse of McClellan and praise of the ne
gro is a passport to fuvor at Washington.
— ««••■»- ■ ■- -—
II was a mercy to traitors that they were
permitted to live, und not immediately hung,
in this loyal State, and they could not com
plain at being merely excluded from the
Courts. These men wore too cowardly logo
South and oid the rebellion, and it' they re
mained here, as they were doing, plotting in
every treacherous wav to break up iheUovcrn
ment, it was time for the Legislature to do
something to put them down. lie therefore
hoped the bill would pas*.—[Extract from J.
W. Owens' speech in support of the Test Oath
bill.
This ercaturc believes that every per
son who does not agree with him on the
current politics, is necessarily a traitor,
and he would hang them if he hnd the
power. We have heard of just his style
of man before—Macaulcy tells of “ a
mad tailor, in the reign of the Protectdhate
pronouncing eternal torments against
those who refused to believe, on his testi
mony, that the Supreme Being was only
six feet high, and that the sun was four
miles from the earth.”
As to people being cowardly, has he
reflected that there is a loud call for sol
diers by President Lincoln ? Ifyes, why
is he wasting away in inglorious civil
life?—[Plater Herald.
Disgraceful. —Let the people remem
ber that at the very time the soldiers
under Burnside or. the Rappahannock
were perishing for want of clothing, our
very benevolent Abolition Administration
awarded a New York clothing house a
contract for making fifty thousand suits
of clothes for worthless runaway negroes
in the neighborhood of Washington, Cairo
and Memphis! The soldiers, to whom
the Government was indebted, were for
gotten,—the negroes remembered and
provided for bountifully !
Fearful Mortality.—The Pittsburg
Gazette publishes a letter from its Vicks
burg correspondent, which says sickness
prevails in Grant's army to a frightful ex
tent, and the deAths average a thousand
a day! A letter from Nashville says
y,4U0 soldiers died in hospital there
from causes other than wounds during
December and January ! Is it strange
that soldiers arc getting tired of the war?

Georgetown, March 22, 1H63.
Georgetown, March 30th, ISAS.
Messrs. Editors: There is much excitement
in this vicinity about the reported discovery of
copper in various parts of the country. Now
there may be copper leads and leads that will
pay to work, but uone of such have been found
in this neighborhood to the present time; yet
every man iu town has his pocket full of rocks
taken from the various called I copper leads
in this vicinity, and said to contain from forty
to sixiy per cent, of pure copper, but when
tested and no copper found, as is invariably the
case, they come to the conclusion if it is not
just copper it is a mighty good indication any
how. The Georgetown Copper Lead Company,
which was reported to have struck it so rich, is
all a humbug. Instead of being u rich lead it
is<xio lead at all, only indications, but these are
said to be good.
The Woodside ouartz lead, found in the log
yard of Sbanklin i Woods ide’s steam saw-thill,
is a very rich ledge, but has not yet been thor
oughly prospected. This is a quartz lead par
tially decayed, and containing much tine, pure
gold.
Spring is here and the peach trees are io full
bloom. We have a tine prospect for an abun
dance of fruit of all kinds. Our citizens art*
engaged in improving and cultivating their
gardens. Many of the gardens, if not the larg
est, are among the most beautiful iu the coun
try. Theae, with the vine clad cottages, give
Georgetown the appearance of an old settled
town.
The citizens of this neighborhood hare form
ed themselves into a military company for the
purpose of learning the arts of war and to pre
pare themselves for any emergency that maj
arise.
Politics are rather dry, but it is with much
satisfaction that I witness the daily increase of
the Democratic party. May God speed the De
mocracy in their holy mission! May they take
the Constitution down from off the shelf where
it has been laid by the Vandals now iu posses
sion of the Government, and have it the ruling
power instead of the military despotism which
is now instituted in its place.

Desperate Effort.— The Administra
tion made a desperate effort to get New
Hampshire to indorse its policy. Besides
Vice- President Hamlin, it sent Gens.
Hamilton and Phelps, and Howard, of
Michigan, and Flanders, of Louisiana, to
stump the State for the Abolition ticket.
Shoddy contractors, ship speculators and
Government agents traversed the State,
spending money liberally and offering fat
contracts, and good positions, to the
sovereigns, if they would support the Ad
ministration. What an outrage on de
cency and honesty for such fellows as
Hamilton and Phelps to be employed by
the Administration and paid with the
| tv.oney of the people, to travel about and
i make violent Abolition speeches! Some
eight months ago Lincoln appointed Ham
ilton “Military Governor" of Texas, an
office unknown to our Constitution, and
since that time, without going near
Texas, he has drawn his salary and made
senseless and disloyal Abolition ha
rangues! How long will the people
submit to be oppressively taxed to sup
port in idlenesss and luxury such worth
less pets of the Administration ?
A Noble Vindication. —It will be re
collected that, some months ago, when
arbitrary arrests were common and Abo
lition mobs, backed by the military, were
encouraged by those in power, the Frank
lin (N. Y.) Gazette, published in a strong
Abolition county, was suppressed and its
editors, for daring to advocate Democratic
principles, were sent to Fort Lafayette.—
At the recent election in that county the
Democrats elected ten and the Republi
cans six Supervisors. In 1861 the county
gave over thirteen hundred majority for
Lincoln—now it gives a Democratic ma
jority. Is this the reaction the Sacra
mento Union speaks of* Such reactions
are common in the Eastern States, and
show that the masses, with “fearful stead
iness,” are turning against the Adminis
tration. Well may the advocates of mob
violence—the Union, Bee and Alta, et
orane hie genus—tremble. A day of
settlement is coming, and when incomes
the Abolition traitors will meet their re
ward.
Abandoned. — A New Hampshire cor
respondent of the Boston Post states that
arrangements had been made to send
borne a considerable number of sick and
wounded soldiers that they might parti
cipate in the election. Three commission
ers were appointed by the Governor to
execute this political scheme, viz: the
Adjutant General, a clergyman and an
active radical politician; but, on learning
that tho New Hampshire soldiers would
vote the Democratic ticket, tho scheme
was abandoned. Democratic soldiers are
good enough to fight, but not to vote. —
That is a privilege granted only to Aboli
tion soldiers.
Can’t be Raised.— The Boston Trav
eller, a leading New England Republican
organ, sayB that it is not expected that a
full regiment of negro soldiers can be
raised in Massachusetts. It is well enough
to talk about the freedom of the contra
bands, but it is too much to expect their
colored brethren of the North to assist
them in gaining their freedom.
Dows os Negro Soi.dikks —We com
mend tbe following to the Sacramento
Union and other Abolition traitors. Ex
tract from the Journal of the “ Commit
tee of Safety" of Massachusetts Bay, in
the revolution :
“Mat 20, 1775.
Resolved. That the admission of any
persons, ns soldiers, into the army now
raising, but only such as are freemen, will
be inconsistent with the principles that
are to bo supported, and reflect dishonor
on this colony, and that no slaves be ad
ridtfcu w.il bis or-'f-oMcr any consider
ation whatever.”
Of this Committee John Hancock was
Chairman, and had he lived in our day
and made such a report he would be stig
matised as a “secessionist and traitor,’
bv the hirelings of the Administration
the descendants of the tories of the Revo
lution and the escaped convicts of Eng
land and Ireland.
