McnDiRtD — Edwin Brown, formerly io the «mph>y of Mr. John Boy, of this City, was murdered on the night of the 11th instant* within a mile of Murkleyville, Alpine District. We learn from a letter to Mr. Burwell. that Brown and his partner left Murkleyville for tbeir cabin, about 12 o’clock Saturday night.— Early on Sunday morning, a man di*c »veted a dead body lying on the trail near town. Ue reported the fact, and pnrtiea at once repaired to the spot to hold nn inquest. It was identi fied as the body of Brow n. He was lying on hie face, with two bullet hole*, through tbe back of his bead, und his doilies partially burned off ll.is supposed that his partner murdered him and attempted to burn bis body. The ntnrder wa* not committed for money, as Brown's money was found in bispocke*. J, W. Ware, Brown's partner, the man who is suspected of the murder, ha* not been scan or beard of Mince be left Murkleyville in com|»an.v with Brown. Brown was a native of Ohio,aud aged about 40 years. 8 c dp ex Death - 0u Monday mording last James W.

He was about 60 rear* old, and was a uatire of Shepherdstown, Jefferson Cn. ( Virginia. He came to California, across tbe plsins, io 1949, and settling in this city, re mained here op to tbe time of bit destb Th* Dtawnll* (Ut« CmtmiIm. Never, nine* the organisation of tba Democratic party in California, hu a State Convention of that party axaem hint, deliberated and adjourned, with aa little discord of thought, feeling and ac tion, as that which convened at Sacra mento on Wednesday of last week and terminated its labor* on the night follow ing. Kidded of factious elements, purged <>f renegades, syenphanta and place hunter*. the representativea of the De mocracy, notwithstanding diversities of opinion about men, combined in solid phalanx nn the national issues of the day, and put forth a political creed by which, all intelligent men concede, the country ! must stand or fall It waa tha largest, most enthusiastic, harmonious and tal ented Conrention that ever met in Cali fornia. The delegates represented the respectability, the honeste, the £"*>«» and the patriotism of our State. Federal officers, pot-house politicians, political hummers, needy adventurers, fawning sycophants and purchased tools, had no voice in that Convention. The utmost harmony prevailed, and the proceedings were characterized by manlinesa, deco i um and dignity. With wonderful una nimity they agreed to ignore past political ditrerences, and in the future to present an unbroken front to the party which is responsible for our national troubles, and which is seeking to rob tha people of tin ir liberties. Actuated by feel lings of the loftiest patriotism, resolved to rescue the country from ruin and the Constitu tion front destruction, the delegates dis regarded all personal preferences and 1 nominated a ticket which they felt confi dent would elicit the enthusiastic support of every lover of civil liberty and every friend of the Union of our fathers. It is a ticket composed of gentlemen of expe rience, of integrity, of ability, of stain less character—whose lore of country cannot he questioned and whose public record is unblemished. Liberal, fearless and watchful of (he interests i.( the peo ple. and ever haeing inarched und- r the Hag and kept step tu the music of the Union—ever having been the uncompro mising advocates of law ami order, the unyielding an I relentless foes of tuob violence, they are worthy standard bear ers of the Democratic party. It is a lieket that fills to the letter the Jeffer sonian test—all on it are “ honest, capa ble and faithful to the Constitution " It is unexceptionable in every respect, and lias been rec-ived everywhere with the liveliest feelings of satisfaction and the wildest enthusiasm. We have yet to hear of the first objection to any candi date on it by a Democrat. The Aholi liuni-ts are fiercely assailing it, which proves that it is a good and popular ticks t. Our platform speaks for itself. Every sentence, every line and word breathes of the purest ,.atriotism. Washington, Jef ferson, Jackson and Clay, were they liv ing, would cordially indorse it It is plain, explicit, pointed and must meet the approbation ami secure the support ■if every fiitiid of the Constitution and 1 the Union. We congratulate the Democracy on the measures and men indorsed by the late Democratic State Convention, and predict nn nverw helinning triumph fur them in the fall elections. Who a re Opposed to a Restoration op the Union. —The old Union, under which freemen enjoyed their lilierty and every branch of industry flourished—the old Union, w hich was respected at home and feared abroad, the Administration party destroyed and now boldly declare it shall not be restored. The Sacramento Union, the purchased mnutll-piece of the Abolition traitors of California, sneered at the idea of a restorer! Union, and its sattelites throughout the State repeated the villainous sneer. The Boston Com monwealth, the organ of Senators Sum ner and Wilson, and in the pay of Gov. Andrew, in speaking of the President's late proclamation for a day of fasting and prayer for the restoration of “the country to its former happy condition of unity ami peace,” thus uttered the sentiments of the Abolitionists, on this question : “ May the tongue be withered ere it is answered that prays for the restoration of that old ‘ unity and peace.’ That unity was crime ; that peace worse than war.'' When surh sentiments are boldly avowed by the strongest supporters of the Administration, and are sanctioned by the President and the party which elected him, as they have been, we can not expect to see the Union restored while they are in power, and it becomes the duty of every lover of the Union to labor for the success of the Democratic | party, which possesses the will, the abil ity and the patriotism to restore the Union. The while man’s government must not be pauperised and ruined to enrich an army of swindling office-hold ers, to keep in powers treasonable party, and to set free Southern negroes. Snurnin Krtmm-THt famous Blue lead —one of the ricbvet gold-bearing quarts veins in the Stale—promises tu be richer (ban the must sanguine anticipated. Ur. Oliver showed its taru s|<ei-iinen« taken from it on Wednesday Iasi, at the depth of twentt-three feet, which ere equal in richness to any we here eeer seen. Veins »f gold—thick and pure—can be traced running all through them. At the depth of twenty-three fret the vein is fire feet thick.— Gentlemen whu do not own n hart of it. and aim hara examined it, assure ue that it it n well-defined ledge, and that it increases in rich ness and thickness as it deacands. All the ruck taken from it ia filled with gold, percep tible to the naked eye; and selected specimens, weighing front two tu flee pounds, have turned out one-third gold. It is, uo jusaikiiiably, the lead <>f the Stale. Ir yon went your washing well done bay a Deebaway. •* Tki Tm Imm." Thomas Jefferson, the greet Apoetle of | Freedom, end tether of the Democratic party, after mature reflection, dedered that the “ two recce, equally free, cannot lire under the aeine Government." Doe* not every intelligent men acknowledge the juatne** ol the eotemn declaration of the immortal Jefferson ! Is not the prop osition self-evident f No one dispute* that Jefferson was a statesman of pre-ein inent ability—no one dares question hi* patriotism or hi* love of liberty. The truth that he enunciated ha* been disregarded by the party in power. Bigotry, imbe cility and fanaticism have taken the place of statesmanship. Garrison, Sumner,. Wade, Greeley, Phillips and Cassius M. Clay, men who have preached treason and prayed for a dissolution of the Onion for years, who believe in negro equality, dictate the policy of the Administration, and the man who exposes the danger and wickedness of that policy is denounced by every menial, spy and vagabond in the country as a secessionist. The lead ers of the Administration party, at the cost of millions of treasure and oceans of blood and thousands of precious lives, are determined to demonstrate that Jef ferson was mistaken, and that “ the two races, equally free, can live under the same Government"—not only live under it, but become a far better and superior race by amalgamation! Distasteful as this may be to the American people, it is the programme laid down by Theodore Tilton, editor of the New York Indepen dent, an Administration organ, which publishes the laws of the United State* “ by authority,” and any opposition to it will he regarded by the Admin stration as “disloyal." We all know that to be “ loyal to the Government"—and all Lincoln's supporters swear that the Ad ministration is the Government—in these day* of venality, mendacity and servility, .in American must renounce bis birth repudiate the teachings of the fathers of the Republic, damn the Decla ration of Independence, spit upon the Constitution, believe in the honesty ol Cameron and the generalship nt Fremont, villily McClellan, embrace niggerism, and swear allegiance to and a-lure Abraham Lincoln. Negro equality and impartial freedom naturally involve that complete fusion of bl od which these Abolition leaders and blasphemers sa v is to “ make a more perfect race” than that which achieved our independence, formed onr Union and governed the country wisely and happily for three-quarters of a centu ry. History warns us to beware of the amalgamation proposed hy Tilton and other leaders of the Administration party. Says a f rcilile writer, “ Rome stood im movable while her citizenship was limited to the Latin race ; her downfall kept equal pace with its extension to her con quered vassals and slaves. Spanish do minion in America held a haughty crest against the jealous svarice of Europe; it sank into abject effeminacy when the pure sire ms of Castilian blood were corrupted hy promiscuous intermixture with the Indian." Let us be ieve with Jefferson and not follow the teachings of Tilton. Stephen A. Douglas said, and the say ing cannot be too frequently reiterated, thnt “ this Government was made on the white '>asis, by white men, fu - the benefit of white men and their posterity forever." Abolitionists are for freeing the negroes at the expense of white men. By freeing them they will subvert the white man's Gnvernment. The Abolition party legis late for the hdm-flt of the black race, the Democratic party for the wnite. Exam ine the proceedings of the last Legislature and the last Congress and the proceedings of Democratic Legislatures and Congress es, and this fact will be manifest. You will soon be called upon, fellow-country men, to make your choice between the two parties. If you desire the elevation of the negro and the degradation of \ our own race, you will support the Abolition ticket headed by Low. If you indorse the principles of Jefferson and Jackson and wish to see them made the policy of the Government, you will exert your in fluence and vote for the Democratic ticket headed by John G. Downey. ■ - > - — It is so.—Reader, whenever you hear a supporter of the Administration par ticularly voieferous in denouncing Demo crat* a* traitor* because they adhere to and insist upon maintaining the Consti tution, ten to one lie has teceived a share of the hundred* of millions of dollar* which, according to the uncontradicted and sworn statements of Republican member* of Congress, have been stolen from the public treasury since the in auguration of President Lincoln. Part of this vast sum has been given to Aboli tion speakers to stump the State and to organ* to flood it with lies against the Democratic party. Speakers and organs are already engaged in the congenial task ami more will be employed before the election cornea off. True.— Says the Albany Argus: If the American Government is saved from dissolution, the people may ascribe the victory to the providence of God, for the Abolition party is determined to keep fol.y at the helm, swindlers in the cabin, and statemanship under the hatches. Rtoirr.— It is stated that Gov. Morton, of Indiana, has expressed hi* determina tion to oppose further military arrests in that State. Infamy, if no wnroa a ennpa. quence. will ultimately rest on all who make or support these arrest*. Ths American people are not slaves, and in heriting the spirit of their ancestor* they will not, without a struggle, succumb to a military despotism. As IarALUBLB T**r.—It cannot be denied that a majority of the Abolition jets, who profess ao much attachment fur the Union and continually boast of their “ loyalty," are at hoart rank disunionists. It must not be forgotten that prominent and influential present leaders of thrir party were the first to threaten and ad encate disunion—tlie first to defy the Federal Ooeernniont by enacting State laws nullifying laVs of Co< gress—the first to adrocato the doctrine of seces sion—the first to repudiate decisions ol the Supreme Court. Hare they rot re peatedly announced that they “ would hare no Union with slaveholders ?"—and that “slavery and freedom are incom patible and cannot exist together ?"—and that “one or the other must go down ?" Did they not promulgate the “ irrepres sible conflict" doctrine?—knowing that the adoption of such doctrine by the free States would lead to the dismemlterinent of the Union ? These are all well attest ed historical facts, and justify us in say ing that a vast majority of the Abolition ists are disunionisUk The radical wing of the Republican party, which controls the Administration, audaciously declare* that it is opposed to a reconstruction of the Union, and insists that slavery shall be abolished in every State of the Union. How stand the im maculate leaders of the party in this State ? Dire they or their organs, the B'llletin. Alta nr Union, give an explicit, unqualified answer to the following ques tion : Are you for the old Union —the Union of Washington and Franklin and Jefferson ? Under that Union we lived happily and prospered wonderfully. Thai Union made us a great, a wealthy and honored nation. That Union suits D m ocrats and they are laboring to restore it. When Loyal Leaguers come whining about you. Democrats, ask them the above question ami insist upon an open, unevasive answer. He who hesitates to answer affirmatively is a disunionist — false to his country, false lo his ran-, false to his God. Place the brand of trai tor upon his shameless brow in eharae ters that will blister and bunt. Put the question to the Self styled Unionists on all occasions, anil you will close their mouths as effectually as if the angel of Death had sealed thrir lips. Fellows who are constantly boasting of their willingness to shed their hlisid for the Union, arc extremely careful to keep thousands of miles from the fields of hat tie. It i> a cheap way to acquire a repu ration foi courage and patriotism, hot on which a high-minded man would scorn to resort to. Boasting and cowardice an unseparahly allied, and as a striking il lustration of the fact we hare only to [mint to the proprietors and editors of Abolition organs in California. Something to Pondek Upon. — It is a well established fact, as the report of the Secretary of the Treasury clearly demon strates, that while men arc annually tax ed from eighty to ninety millions of dol lars to pay the expenses of furnishing runaway or stolen negroes with shoes, clothing, provisions and medical atten dance. The Administration provides lib erally for the negroes; it permits the wives and families of llnoe who are fight ing their country’ll battles to starve for the necessaries of life! Does not this fully prore that the |>arty in power loves the negro better than it does the white man ? It oppresses and impoverishes, insults and imprisons and conscripts the white man, to fet-d and dolhe and free and pamper <he negro. R< menilter these facts, laboring men of California, and be not intimidated by Abolition hireling' charging you with being secc'sionists and traitors for opposing the National Administration. Remember that the most illustrious character in history—our own Washington—was called a rebel and a traitor by the minions of the British Ministry, for daring to fight for freedom. Expensive.— A prominent Abolition U. S. Senator (Fessenden) estimates that the annual budget will be hereafter two hun dred and eighty millions of duiiara, one hundred mi lions of which will be for a permanent military establishment of one hundred thousand men, the very thing which the patriots of the R -volution warned their countrymen against, as cal culated, if not inten ed, to subvert their liberties. A largo part of the other one hund ed and fifty millions will he giren lo agents, speaker', spies and usws|iap<-rs to keep Up the organisation of the Aboli tion party. Is it not disgraceful that the people are ruinously taxed by the Ad mi lustration in order that it may pur chase the support of such venal sheets as the Bulletin, Alta, Union and their im - latum? Despotism.— The Coluinhua Crisis tells that six Democratic farmera have been thrown into prison at Dayton. Ohio, by one of Boritsi U»*m military underling*.— For what ? The underling aforesaid alle ges that some un«een person fired a shot at him, and thereupon he lied six inno cent persons arrested as hostages until the “ unseen” roan is delivered up! And when the people protest against such fiendish outrages they are arrested by Administration spies and rxih-d from their native land ! Patiently submit to insult and every outrage. My the agents of Lincoln A Co., to free born Americans, or suffer the consequences! A day of retribution, noiselessly, swiftly, is com ing, and when it does come well may tba pimps of power tremble. Revenge.— ValUndigham.on the floor of Congress, denounced Ben Wade as “a liar, s scoundrel and a coward.” Wade pru dently pocketed the stinging insult, and, asssasin-like, stabbed his bold tie in the dark. He has the reputation of beving instigated tbs persecution of the sms he stm afraid to meet (mot to feoe. OUR OOMMTirPOJWf. Cum if tk« W«r. To divert the attend* of the public fm® themsehes.

Through Hit the Universe, the same cause al ways produces the same effect. For instance, fhie an unclouded and uneclipsed sun shines upoo the earth it is always light; tire always consumes combustible materials; a certain •mount of cold always congests water.snd there are certain p«*ir*M»s which, if taken in certain quantities, slwavs destroy life. If then, the relation of cause end effect, sub sists between the institution of slavery snd the Ciril war now raging in the Uuited States, the history of the world stumld show that “Slavery slwavs causes civil war.” Is'it true; m att ages snd in all countries of the world in which slavery has existed, people hare been lighting about it? If so, let mime examples be mentioned. Before two men fight, they get angry Before they get angry, each one does says something that excites ihe angry peasiona of the other. What is true when anplied to individuals, is equally true when applied t*» states They d*» not tight, unless they first get angry, and there i« slwavs some cause lor tlietr snger. Men should n»*ver be blamed for doing what ther esnno* avoid. If there is, in slavery, that which makes men quarrel and tight in spite of themselves, those who quarrel and tight about it, are not m the lee t to blame. When drnnken men quarrel and fight we sometimes lay th»* blame on the bad whiskey n;v hare been drinking; but we never reason thus in quarrels and fights that take place be tween sober men. The position of President Lincoln issubstau italic this: Neither the Northern people nor the Southern people are to blaine. However much they de sired to be peaceable, there was, in slavery. »»meflnng wni« h irresitably impelled them first to uturr! and then lo tight. The ssuiiiptum is to absurd too be maintain ed for a moment. The prvseut war is owing not to the mere ex istence of slaverr, but to the President sod his nan parti friends. Boat. Georgetown.
