THE mountain democrat.
(Vroa lb* Catholic Mirror.] Rale or Ilnln. When the Athenians were be.-ieeing the city of Thaso, the authorities, in a mo ment of impetuous, but ill-advised pa triotism, decreed the penalty of death on any one who should dare to propose a peace with the enemy. The people, wearied, hv tom; suffering, and menaced with famine and its term//* ■«■ pestilence —yearned for the return of peace ; but the inexorable law cheeked the public expression of their desires. There was one, however, who, moved by the calamities which were impendin'; over his country, determined to impel li bis life in order to avert the catastrophe whic i be foresaw in the near future. Placing a rope around Ills neck, he en tered the assembly o( rulers, and w iih a eoice full of emotion, exclaimed, “ I ac cept the fate which awaits me. I.et my life expiate the penally of violated law . Your safety, the safety of the country lies in peace, and 1 conjure you to make it at wos." The nolne heroism had its 1 proper ettvet. iKitrr /!/( d. The life of the patriot was saved, and (he shouts of peace went up to gladden the hearts of a perishing people. Our civil war is doing unmitigated evil. Its horrors are unutterable. Its folly and uselessness, ns a means to any desirable and practicable end, me fully demonstrated. Its further c mtinuanre is pregnant with a discoid that may detv wisdom in counsel and moderation in ac tion. There is a heaving of the popular mind which bodes the presence and agi tation of the fiercest elements of popular passions.

There is something maivi lous in all tl.i — some thing inscrutable to the h- -i _ lament.

The itiyst-ry would seem to lie ill this, that the power to act legally in the initiation of measures preparatory to a s;u— iv and honorable adjustment of our difficulties, rests with the faction which, lit the in terests of party, inaugural d the war, and which now sees in a return to peace its fatal destruction. Hence the “ inexora ble work” of the Times must go on, for upon its completion will depend the ten ure of power and the fulfilment of toe mission of abolitionism. The only safe rente iy is to he found in the ballot-box under the sanction of law. The process is slow, hut “eve- ts march ;" and their movement* often fail to arrest the attention i f a had government, en grossed in the narrow aims and corrupt purposes of party. Hence abolitionism, disregarding the almost universal wish ot the people for peace, will hold on in its destructive career, even though in doing so, it opened a chasm of anarchy that ■would engulph, with itself every "impor tant interest of the country. Without a speedy peace that anarchy will inevitably come upon us, for only that cup paralyze the maddened energies of abolitionism, now absorbed in one idea—to rule or ruin. Who ahe They? — When wo, hear, says the Oregon Intelligencer, such epithets as treason, traitor, copperhead, sccesh thief, and many others, applied to the constitu tional Democracy, by the vagabond, In k spittle, sniveling Abol tionists, we pity them, for they are fools, and know not what they do. Can a man he a Union man, and stand hv and see the Constitu tion violated? Can any one he a patriot, without protecting, maintaining and de fending the laws and institutions of his country, in all their purity and vigor ? Yet this really traitorous and Abolition gang insist that you must violate all laws and constitutional rights to become a good Union patriot. *• O, witT some power the gillie pic ’em To see themselves us ithers »*ce ’em !

Austin, (N. T.) May 14th, 1863. Editors Democrat: Since'my last, I bare been enguged in prospecting around the coun try uiid endeavoring to get a thorough knowl edge of the exteut of the tnioe* in this region, and the probable future of the various towns and villages now projected. This country is rapidly Ailing up and im proving, and the improvements now being made are of a Since 1 last ‘ -u V}"° there have been ten fire-proof build ings commenced in Austin, and six of them are line business buildings, and are being pushed ahead with all the eocrgy of a new mining country. The town presents more the appear ance of an old country than of a place where, two months ago, there were no buildings at all. We have a telegraph office here, an Express and I’ostotlice at Clifton, which is really a portion of the same town; also, a tri-weekly Express to the Humboldt country. Large trains are constantly arriving from Salt Lake, laden w ith all kinds of produce, which makes the coslrf living much less than it is at Virginia. FhflP is plenty at and 8 cents, eggs :*tj cents, and all kinds of produce io pro portion. I understand there are a hundred wagons on the way now from Salt Lake, so there is no danger of starving for the present. We have a pruning office ami the paper will be the present Week. Next week there is ■%v>\# Av-grini/ bduod several more gambling houses; so you see we live like .1 nvili/ed, Christian community. The mines arc being worked io a more sys tematic manner than at first, and as far as test ed have been f -und to satisfy the most sau guine. Many men come here expecting to strike it rich, sa il out for a fortune right off and leave. They located ledges and *’ cayotied” around a little, and begnu to fear they had made a failure; und front their experiments arose the cry that the mines were a humbug. Virginia, with a Mind selfishness, joined in de nouncing the miikit to frighten people from coming any farther, but those who came here to wmk, have prospected them more fully und are being richly repaid for it. Many leads which had the appearance of pinching out are fiund t » w iden on sinking down on them. The •• .M *ttopo!itan,” which was only twelve inches w ide at tin* t**p and narrowed for some distance down, ij. m-w , .it the depth of forty feet, over six f«*ct w ide and rapidly increasing; and this is the eu>c with aii which have been followed d«*a u. The mines have an advantage here over any utl.eis that have been discovered—the leads are rich fr >ni the very top; so that the miner ran get the means from the leads to prospect uud w. ui.d thus avoid the necessity of watting hTelgu Capitol to develop them and Iti ■/•.* out poor mm. All that is wanted now is mills to work the rock, mid two or three sre coming—one from 1'ike's Leak, and one from C'alihii u:o. belonging M Messrs. Duel A Dorsey, formerly of IMucertille.

Kditoun Dfe.uoCKAT: Notwithstanding we are having the finest weather imaginable, and the copper lever is not yet allayed, and late dis pan hes tmoi the East are ol an exciting und momentous nature, and the Adoiiuistraliouists M viii guilUcoa of a reasonable doubt incounec tioo thvi«-with, and do not y et realize that they ale in “ tile gall of bitterness and the bonds of iniipnty," yet our town is dull—quite dull. The fact i> turns are getting hard. A two-hit piece begins to assume, to our economical optics, the cnlaigcd dimensions of a cartwheel; audas for a w hole Hollar—bless me! why the angle ot \ ision w ill scarce subtend half its arc. In tes tiiiiuuy w Lei co fallow me to uote an tocideutin point, feeling an aching void in the region of the pocket—a region cousecrated to memory, as having b« en ut some indefluite past time, the receptacle of the metalic substance, I mused profoundly, dejectedly, almost forlornly upon my lonely situation, and casting about me des pci ately tor some means of extricution from the hnuuciul slough of despond into which I bad fallen. The result of all which mental elabor at ion was—the expedient of borrowing; and my very particular fraud A. had tbe honor of be ing selected us being the most likely, atncngull my numerous admirers, to st ud an approach for an X. The purpose formed w as immediate ly carried into effect. Me ting A. 1 energeti cally grasped bis proffered band with a couple of mine — expressed myself as profoundly touched at the sight of him—intimated the sel ti'li pleasure 1 realized in being exclusively blessed in his presence, by tenderly and fami lial lv inserting the index linger of my right hand iu the upper button bole of bis coat, aud draw ing him putrouiziugly aside frotp the vul gar gaze. Out of the abundance of tbe heart I then and there did speuk, assuring him that knowiug bis profound attachment for me, and the great gratification an opportunity to do me a substantial favor would afford him, and also wishing to give him a slight token of my most distinguished consideration,! had come to give him the refusal of loaning me ten dollars before going elsewhere. He seemed deeply moved at this unexpected evideuce of my esteem and partiality, and lor a moment seemed perplexed for language in w hich to couch a reply. By a masterly effort an answer was given, and tho' hrokf n and disconnected from the evident emo tion of tbe speaker, was clearly though not satisfactorily understood—the meaning oeing, simply, that the party of the second part was not insensible'to the high honor so delicately paid him by tba party of the first part, but very magnanimously waring all claim to a monopoly of a regard so condense and intense, be begged to assure the party of the first part that he might ** go elsewhere" and extend the area of his sublime friendship, ad infinitum, without wounding his sensibility or doing the least in justice or violence to bis highly rectified and concentrated affection for bim—(the party of the second part.) • Here the conference ended, and exeunt om nes, your correspondent (the party of the first part) feeling that ease of mind inspired by conscious rectitude and the performance of a noble action—but—but feeling no other change —and consoling himself with the reflection that the object of the expedition, though in the main unsuccessful, was not a defeat but only a fail ure. It was not after all a bombardment or a direct assault, but only a reo**nnoisance. And that suggests the war and the war suggets the history of the war, or rather the 44 History of the Great Rebellion,” as it is called, by Victor, which I have just glanced at. The author bus tome celebrity, and I consider the first volume, which traces the causes of the war, valuable as a book of reference. RECLUSE. Gkobuktowx, May 17, 1863.
