THE MOUNTAIN DEMOCRAT.
V. W. OBLWICKt AND VI. A. im'tlT, BMTOM. •• Our country, alu-oy* right; but , right or wrong our country. *• • PL.AOEHVILLB, OAL. Batarday May $13, 1803 THE OITY AND COUNTY. • PtcJftC. —The scholars of the public school will hold their fifth annual picnic, to-morrow, under the supervision of their amiable teachers, Hr. Bartlett and Misa Irvine. The ground se lected tor the occasion ia on the Georgetown road, about three-fourths of a mile without the citj, and is one of the loveliest und most suit able places in the neighborhood. City Printing. —As will be seen from the proceedings of the City Council, in another col umn, that patriotic and highly intellectual body, under tbe lead or the venerable und dis interested Alderman from the ward,, bare eommenced operations to oust us from thetoon orable and lucrative position of city printers.— We neither ask nor expect any favors from tbe Common Council. We are aware that tbe prin cipal plank in the platform of a majority of its members ia hatred to the Mooxtain Dcmocbat and its editors, and that they will willingly use their position of “ brief authority' 1 for the purpose of cat rying out their amiable feelings. Let them do so. They can neither destroy our business Dor seriously disturb our equanimity by anything they can do against us either as individuals or Aldermen. We have passed through more trying ordeals heretofore without serious injury, and bare a firm belief that our good luck has not yet deserted us, and a lively hope that we ahull survive tbe malice of the present Board of Aldermen. When our old friend Cooper's "body lies mouldering in the grave” anil " his S'-ut poos marching mi" to “ Celestial” realms, w e hope to he still here to chronicle “his many virtues" and the iirepara. ble loss of mankind iu general and the first ward in particular, in the Moi stain Dksiociiat. Some old fogy tux-payer may cuttrtuin the an tiquated notion that the city priming should be givcD to the lowest bidder, hut, bless his un. sophisticated heart, aucii an idea is [entirely out of place when the cboice lies between un Abolitiuuist and u Democrat. The fate of the Nation trembles in the balance! Heavens 1 can patriotism haggle for money considera tions st such s crisis? Would you save a pal try sum at the price of the Tory existeuce of tbe Republic? Shade of John Drown, forbid it! The very pillars of the capital would crum ble in sheer consternation, should love of lucre so far crush the patriotism of the Common Council as to permit them to give the printing t<> the lowest bidder 1 The idea is treasonable and could have emanated only from the brain of a “ disloyal copperhead"! Scaled I'eoiuisals for completing the gra‘ •ding, bridging and masonry, on the first see. tiou of the I’lacerville and Sacramento Valley Railroad (between Folsom and Miller'sCnrrul •, will be received ut the office of the Chief Engi neer, in this city, until the Gilt of June. We noticed iu one of the flatter County papers, a short time since, a statement that a contract on the Central i'ucitic Railroad, taken bv one o t the otlieers ol that Company, liud been re let by him at about floo.oijo less than the bid on which it wus awarded to him. Thu Dourd of Directors should he admonished by this cir cumstance to reject uny bid that may be be yond the estimate of their Engineer and that may afliird a margin for stub immense profit. We think, too, that bids should not he submit ted by officers of the Ci in puny, fur the reason that, no difference how fairly any such might obtain a coutract, or how honestly fulfil it, sus picions of unfairness and collusion might arise and be employed to defeat the proposition fur the County to become a stockholder ia the Compuny. We make those suggestions thro’ no doubts of the intelligence or honesty of the Board of Directors, 4>ut through onr anxietv that they and the great enterprise whose suc cess or failure ia in their bauds shall stand well with the peopleVf the entire county, and that they may avoid Soy action on which the ei.u rniea of the fa'ifTWTe! w.oa Lang a su -j it'ioti or found a complaint. Solenoid Coach.—Charley Watson isabullv driver, has a bully team and a splendid new Concord coach. He is prond both of his team and coach, and when seated on the box would scarcely condescend—he d think it a conde scension—to nod to an Ktnpcror. The coach is a beauty, elegantly finished, runs lightly and rides easily. Other coaches, of the “same sort,” will soon be placed on the route between this city and Nevada Territory, by the Pioneer Stage Company. In agents, drivers, teams and coaches this company has no peer anywhere. The proprietors, appreciating the wants of the traveling community, employ none but gentle manly and atteutirc agents and careful and temperate Jdrivers. During the whole of last winter, in all kinds of weather, their stages ur rived with remarkable regularity. As travc| Increases they place new stages and teams on the route, so as not to detain or incommode those who patronize them. A company thus accommodating must please. It not only de serves but commands success, and has the good wishes of ail who can appreciate eutor" prise and courtesy. Strawberries.—We are indebted to our worthy friend, Mr. E. Mortensen, for a box of large and luscious strawberries. They were grown in bis garden at Michigan Flat,and ‘May over” any others that we have seen this season- Mr. M. sold forty-eight quarts of this tine fruit in oar market, du Thursday, at 07’ J cents per quart. Martin Auiokf, uf Coloma, is entitled toeur thauks fur a package C.f Cataw ba wine of his last year's vinlage. It is a most delicious Lev erage, far superior to most of the Champaigne imported to this country, and retjeets much honor on him as a wine-maker, lie sells it at eight dollars per dozen, and, fur our own use, we would not give one dozen ol it for two of the Champaigne sold at Hau Francisco lor |20 per dozen. Harry Rorr, the amiable and good.looking young gentleman that superintends the letter department of Wells, Forgo ,V Co’s Express* and whose promptness is equalled only by his politeness, daily delivers to us the Sacramento Han Francisco and Virginia City papers just ahead uf the mail, fur which wc owe him leu thousand thanks. Arottare Ottv, of the Lafayette Restaurunt.is entitled to our thanks fur a box of mammoth strawberries, grown in Holloway's garden ou Hanglown Hill. Mr. Ort is prepared to serve tbo public with strawberries and cream, iced cream and other summer luxuries. Our read ers should give him a call. Divorces Granted. —At the receut term of the District Court divorces were grunted to Mrs. C. A. How laud, Agnes R. Shove aud Car oline Skaggs. In Our Next—The Constitution and by law Hal the “Excelsior No. 2 and Eureka Cop per Mining Compautes” will be published id our next. The California. If not universally admitted it is not the less true that the only obstacle to the permanent success ‘of the Democratic party in this State, is the present unfor tunato ami mischievous division existing in.its ranks —a division keptupbyde stgning politicians for selfish purposes. Certain it is that but for this the Demo cratic party would have been victorious where it lias been defeated, nnd Califor nia, instead of going over to the enemies of Democracy, would have given a glo rious triumph for Democratic principles. But the party was divided where it miglitand should have been united; dis sensions, violent and uncalled for and suicidal, took the place of the pre-exist ing harmony ; Democrats warred against each other instead of a common enemy; and almost from the time it ceased to be a unit, the Demoeciyi" party has met with defeat. By its senseless dissensions it threw away success. Without calling into question the causes which led to a result so disastrous and deplorable, and while it is but loo true that the Democratic party is not yet a unit, it is exceedingly gratifying to per ceive a growing sentiment with Demo crats generally throughout the State, not to be “ led like lambs to the slaughter,” but forgetting past dissensions resolve henceforth to labor for the succccss of the united Democracy, as the only way to achieve permanent success. It cannot be denied that a largo majority of both sections of the Democratic party depre cate the existing division, and that there is a strong and increasing desire to see the party one inspirit, principle and ac tion. That it will be reunited, and on a basis which will secure for it permanent ascendancy in the State, is an indisputa ble fact. The masses of each wing have so willed, and from their decision there is no appeal. Apart from the disastrous results to our State growing out of the division of the Democracy, the Democrats of Califor nia are an element in the Democracy of the Union; and as such, —essential to its success and the prosperity of a common country,—they have no light to war against each other ; no light to be divi ded ; no light to give the State, nnd not it merely, but the Union, into the hands of Abolition traitors; no light to trille with the interests of the people, and betray the confidence reposed in them ; no right to continue in power a party that over rides constitutions, violates law s and jus titles and encourages mobs. While we do not consider California, or any other one State, the battle ground in the approaching Presidential election, yet, in view of the past, and when we remember the consequences of a divided party in the last Presidential contest, have not the Democracy of the Union a right to demand that the interests of the country and the great Democratic party of the Union be not further jeop ardised by petty warfare between the De mocracy of a sing'c State ? Most as suredly. In every other State the De mocracy are united and stand on a com mon platform, and there ia no excuse for their being divided here. Those who de sire to keep up the division are playing Into the hands of tho opponents of the Democratic party and desire the success of Abolition traitors. ‘ 'Every citizen, be lie the poor laborer or the princely merchant or the eminent professional men, is interested in the per manent success of the Democratic party. It upholds equally the interests of all classes, conferring special favors on none It is not less impartial than honest, alike in its professions, its principles and its actions. Our State has gone over to the enemies of the Democracy against the avowed popular will; and now that Cali fornia is placed in a false position before the sister States of the Union, it behooves us to profit l»y past experience, though hitter be the lesson, and hereafter be one in thought and in action. We have said the Democratic party jn this State would be rc-united. Wc re peat tbe assertion. The Democracy w ill meet in State Convention on the 8th of July, nominate u ticket,adopt a platform, and work earnestly and harmoniously lo r a common cause ; and by doing so they will be enabled successfully to withstand the assaults of their enemies and main tain a permanent ascendency. Gii.ukfu.i.y Backi.su Down. —The Ab olition traitors, seeing tbe hand writing on the wall, are gracefully backing down. They know that posterity will hold them responsible for the war. They know that a compromise, satisfactory and honorable to both sections, would hava been effected long ago, bad it not been for their insane opposition. Knowing this and dreading the consequences of their folly, they are changing their tone. Even Horace Gree ley is becoming conservative. Some of his old admirers were displeased with his recent suggestion that the Southern States, on the restoration, of tbe Uniuu could hold slaves, the same as before. To one of these he thus replies; “ What 1 understand to bo the truth of the matter is this: 1. The States which formed the original Union and adopted tho Federal Constitution were previously in full possession and exercise of the power to fix and regulate the legal status of their own people respectively ; 2. They surrendered many powers to the Federal Government, but they did not surrender this one; 3. They have never since surrendered it; 4. Conse quently, they still possess it.” A Swiniileb Convicted. —A verdict of bl.154 81 has been recovered in New Orleans against the redoubtable Gen. Neal Dow, one of Lincoln's appointees, for stealing and sending home silver spoons, etc. Excessive loyalty was plead in excuse of his rash act. Damaging Statement* It will be recollected that the organs of the Administration party, in order to di vert attention from the imbecility and recklessness of their purchasers, fiercely assailed Gen. McClellan for what they called “ his insubordination.” Placed in command of a magnificent army, from which much was expected, and knowing that the people would hold him responsi ble for its success or failure, he carefully matured plans for its onward march plans which promised success, and would have been successful, had they not. been interfered with and thwarted by the ig norant and jealous authorities at Wash' ington. The President and Secretary of War, distant from the field of operation 1 * and ignorant of military movements, without consulting the commanding Gen eral, fdBiwiiiy and recklessly withheld troops from him, for “ the protection of Washington," and submitted suggestions, amounting almost to commands, for his future actions. Gen. McClellan, knowing that if he followed t'teir suggestions, his army would be defeated if not captured, modestly remonstrated and asked for re inforcements, and for doing so he was branded as a “ rebel sympathizer” by ev ery Abolition traitor in the. country. — These scoundrels have nothing to say about the “ insubordination" of other Generals. They received instructions from their masters to villify McClellan, and they obeyed. Around Mctlellan clustered the hopes and the affections of tiie American people, and the President and his Cabinet saw in the successful General a formidable rival for the Presi dency, and in order to destroy his popu larity it was necessary to command their hirelings to abuse him, and to accuse hint of inefficiency .insubordination and treach ery. Faithfully have the mercenary wretches obeyed the command. They have not a word of complaint against the inefficiency or treachery of other Gene rals. Not one of them dare notice the following, so disgraceful to all concerned: “ Gen. John Cochrane, in a recent let ter, states tiie Order No 8, of Gen. Hum side, alluded to in the report of the Com mittee on the Conduct of the War, ‘ dis missed hum the service and relieved ol their commands twenty general officers of the armv of the Potomac, who had dis turbed General Burnside. At the head of this list stood the significant name of Gen. Joe. Hooker’.’ ” CoSTEMET FOI! THE CONSTITUTION. —TIlC late Congress was noted for its imbecility, corruption and total disregard of consti tutional obligations. The abolition trai tors who swore to support the Constitu tion, laughed derisively as the oatli was administered. They professed to owe al legiance to a “ higher law” than the Constitution—that higher law which con demns perjury. They passed a Con scription law which gives the President absolute power over too States, as though there were no State Governments at all. It gives him tiie power of appointing all the officers, clothes him with more than regal power, and if he were an able and ambitious man, he could and would de stroy the liberties ol the people. The Constitution of the United States de clares that— Congress shall have power “to provide for calling forth the militia to execute the law of the Union, suppress insurrections, and repel invasions; to provide for or ganising, arming and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress.” We are informed the President intends to enforce the Conscription act, and yet lie has taken a solemn oath to support the Constitution of the United States 1 Is the senseless plea of “ State necess ity” an excuse for violating tho Consti-' tion ? If so, what crime may not be committed under the plea of necessity ? Easteks Negroes. —Much has lately been said about the gallantry of negroes. A few weeks ago the Sacramento Union published an article in which it was con tended that negro soldiers were superior to white soldiers as sentinels. Extraor dinary effiorts have been made by Gov. Andrew, of Massachusetts, to organize a negro regiment. His agents were found in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. The Rochester (N. Y.) Union gives the results of Fred. Doug lass’ labors in the cause. Fred, raised seventeen men in Geneva, but before the time of leaving, nine of them deserted Of the eight who reached Rochester, only four could he got into the cars, and two of them left before the train started. Of the two who went on, one subsequently returned. The party was thus reduced to one, and it is said he expects a com misssion. Three Things. —There are three things, says tiie Providence Post, the Democracy wunt and will have, viz ; Free speech, a free pross and free ballot. They are guar anteed to them by the Constitution, and will be maintained at ail hazards. They will submit to any law, to every enact ment, now matter how hard or oppress ive, so long as their right to think, speak and vote is respected. Hard ok Lingoes.—A late number of the Bostou Post has the following: Mr Lincoln says he is the Government. He is only the agent of the Government. The Constitution, the laws, the Supreme Court and Congress are all above him. They constitute the Government. An organ grinder might as well say he was the or gan as Mr. Lincoln say he is the Govern ment. -« -•♦•-*' D you w&ut your washing well done bur a Dasha wav. Common Connell Proceeding*.

The New York correspondent of the Sian Francisco Call writes as folluws : About every day, now, we have a dis turbance among the laborers working on tlie piers or wharves, or in the ware houses, owing to tlie dislike exhibited, especially by Irishmen, to the iutrudoc tion of negro workmen. This dislike usually culminates in a row, when the parties in antagonism happen to get into me vicinity of each other, and stone throwing, pistol shooting, the turnout of the police, etc., are tiie consequences. The political disposition to elevate the negro, as an industrial, to the status of the w liile man, has produced a fueling among the white laborers generally, of the most implacable hatred for the Colored race, and I fear will work much mischief yet —ns it nducts the wages ol labor, and at a time whon the price of everything to eat, dtink, wear, etc., lias so much ad vattced, the exasperation is not likely to diminish. When it w ill end, time only can determine. Mask tiie UstitrEUs. —Oath making has always been a favorite trick with bigoted, corrupt, intolerant revolution ists. The French Revolution presents scenes of oath making an oath taking, which oath men violated as surely as ta ken, until all respect for such obligations were lost upon the people. The civil wars of Great Britain were no less fiuitful of such evils. As parties changed, the oath changed. The domi nant party for the time being, overriding all sense of justice and decency, forced the minority to swallow any extra judi cial oath they might hatch up. Those who called on God to witness their de votion and truth to Charles I,'beheaded him and placed Cromwell in the protec torate. Among the statesmen and war riors who bore a chief par*, in restoring to the throne of England Charles the 11, were the very many who had repeatedly abjured him, —nay, some of them boast fully utlirmed if they had not uhjoured him, they never could have restored him. The solemn league and covenant, a test of the days of Cromwell, was n few years after its vitality burned by the common hangman amidst the huzzas of thousands wiio themselves subscribed it. Those who plighted their allegiance in the most solemn manner to James the II, plotted his duwnfall, and placed William and Mary at the head of the “ legitimate" government. The chronicler of those events, in speaking to posterity of them, says “ Do not flatter yourselves that the ingenuity of law givers will ever devise an oath which the ingenuity of causists will not evade, What indeed is the value of any oath in such a matter? Among the many lessons w .ich the troubles ol the last generation have left us, none is more plain than this, however precise, no imprecation, however awful, ever saved or ever will save a government from de struction.”—[Placer Herald. Shocking Resects of Wak. —Outrages are frequently perpetrated by soldiers al most tuo shocking to believe. The New York Christian Inquirer, a strong Union paper, makes, on what it calls “ reliable authority," tliede statements, but they do not tell the half of the whole sad truth: “ In several libraries of New England clergymen we have seen choice volumes of great cost, bearing the names of South ern ministers, to w hom they still belong, ulthough they have been sent North as gifts from Yankee soldiers who had ap propriated them, Some Massachusetts parlors arc said to he carpeted with spoils of another kind. Now. if any one asks what has become of the Union party once so strong at the South, wo answer that, in. part, they have been alenjated from the government by the unjustifiable outrages committed by wicked or thoughtless federal soldiers. 4t Reau fort, S. C., tombs were violated. At Hol ly Springs, Miss, a communion table was used in behalf of ‘ euchre’ and • old sledge.’ Such tales of wrong has infuri ated many who were disposed to he friends of the Union, and their righteous iudignation has had something to do with reverses that have overtaken our arms,” •«*»■— Btr a Dasbawar Washing Macbiue if you want to please the ladies. Great Decrease. —The 128th Illinois regiment, having lost about seven hun dred men in five months by sicknesa and desertion, its principal officers have been dismissed, and the regiment ordered to be consolidated. The dismissed officers were also ordered to leawe the depart ment In the same department, a cor respondent of the Augusta (Maine) Age, says, hundreds of soldiers are daily de serting, on account of sickness and intro ducing negro soldiers among them. White men will not submit to be degiad ed to a level with the negro. Board or Education. —Ou Wednesday even ing, the Common Council re-elected Rev. C. C* Peirce as Superintendent, and elected Messrs.
