McnDiRtD — Edwin Brown, formerly io the

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

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.

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.

mr that, •• Slavery is the oauee of the war. —-
Tbev hence argue that alar err should be abol
ished, claiming that they are prompted, not by
a rancorous haired to slavery,but by • devoted
lore lo the Union. "Abolish slavery, any
thev. "to save the glorious Union."
giceut as to truths that are self evideot. or
rearn>Hr admit led. be who affirms a propor
tion. should alarara prove it. Tl»e President
and bis friends otfer do proof in favur of the
proposition tber assume. •*
I will present. «br the conaideranr-u of fhe
public, a few arguments in opposition 1 6 the
position of President linc*4n.
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.
