Since receiving the letter reliable infor mation has reached me that a respectable portion of the Louisiana people desire to amend their Slate Constitution, and con template holding a Convention for that object. This fact alone, as it seems to me, i* a sufficient rea-on why the Gener al Government should not give the Com mittee the authority you seek to act un der the existing Slate Constitution. I may add, that while I do no’, perceive how such a committal our military operations in Louisiana, I really apprehend it might embarrass them. As to an election to he held next No vember, there is abundant time without any older or proclamation from me jus! now.

Editors Democrat: After spending severs! weeks in tbe country end rusticsting to those rursl towns, Virgioi* sod Placer?tile, 1 re turned to ttnd our city grown beyond recogni tion. One can hardly realise the astonishing improTement made in so short a time. It is a fixed fact that within eight months the city of Austio will be the third place in importance on the Pacific coast. Already the receipts at our telegraph office are only exceeded by two offi ces on the West of the Rocky Mountains. Buildings are going up all around us. The sound of the ax and hammer greets the ear in every direction, and tbe welcome sound of the steam whistle rises above tbe din of busi ness and proclaims the fact that we have two mills in operation, r»»i»pv ' *. * ' . have three other nulls nearly completed.' Tbe owuera in different claims are crowding the mills for the " next chance/* One buudred mills could uot crush the rock w hich wuu<d toIwksn out right away, were the means of crushing at hand. There uever was as tine an opening lor capitalists as building mills at this place. Mr. Bind went into Virginia yesterday with the first shipment of bulliou, from this place, which was crushed at his mill, lie had the proceeds of two aud one-half tons of rock from the Honda company *s claim on the Mugnoiia Ledge, which yielded the nice little sum of one thousand nine hundred and ev&Ciy-twu dollars aud seventy-live cents! This rock was tuken out about tw eiity-tiv e feet from the Magnolia company’s incline on the same ledge; the two eotn|runies having settled their difficulties are now clear in their titles. The same mill also crushed teu tons ol r«»ck from the Morgan and Muncey ground which yielded between three and tour hundred dollars to the ton! There were several other yields equally rich, but as 1 am unable to get the figures 1 cannot give them to you. 1 only send you such facts as I know to he true. Within the past two weekly there have been stocks here sold at the following figures, for cu»ti: Yankee Blade tour hundred dollars per foot; Union No. o, four hundred dollars per foot; Molgau A Muncey tire hundred dollars |>er loot. One hundred dollars per foot has been offered snd refused for stock in both the Magnolia and Florida, and stocks arc rapidly mcieaidng in value. W« t k is* being done on all the ledges and they ate being fast developed. The Se) moor Com pany the Caspian) ure running all incline and are now taking out some at fine r«*ck as uny in the Territory which will be c udied us soon «■* their turn tom,**. The Lilian Allen hoys have run a tunnel and strut k their ledge and are now gelling rock crushed ai Brook* A Co’s null. Tne Magnolia Compa ny are taking out rock and wi:l soon have n large quantity crushed. In fact the country is lull ol life and activity. The fact that we arc ; tmw taking «>iit money here instead of depend ing oil its being brought in Iruin other places giies new Itle io everything. New discoveries arc he ng made evt-rv day. A new ledge has been discovered immediate') below the Magnolia, which appears equal!) a gnnd, Called the Milwaukee Ledge and two Companies located mi i% one called the Milwau kee and the othei the Elk Horn C miijMiiv , ai*o tbe G<»t ei nor I) w nev w hit h i* w ell t'-might of.

Vote t;ik Wiimx Ticuct.— Democrats, on Wednesday next, go the polls eatlv, and “give a long pull, a strong pull and a pull altng. ther," for the Democratic nominees. Vote the w hole ticket. Our victory w ill not be complete, decisive, sat isfactory, if one of our candidates fail of an election. Our party is strung, our principles national, our c use noble and our candidates unexceptionable, and be ing such every lover of our glorious Cun stituttha and Union should sustain them. Democrats, go to the pidls early and vote, and see that none of your In in icrat ie n iglihors remain it home. This is an important election, involving the hh.rtlf and hapjdness, and it may he the an ty ex isting, of the American people. le t nothing keep Democrats from voting,— <iive one day to the service of your country, friends, and you will rc*s-«je it from the hand* of weak and corrupt tuefi—from the hands of nn-n who have labored for years to dissolve the Union and to bestow the elective franchise on negroes. Infamoi s —Old line ,Whigs remember, that the Abolitionists of Miilersburg,Ohio, faulted, with fiendish malignity, over the death of the patriotic John J. Crittenden, and celebrated the event with bonfires I Sixty respectable witnesses, over their own signatures, publish this statement to the world. » .... .4 VoTEtts of California! —are you willing to submit to the dictation and vote for the nominees of Federal officials? — for men of bribery and wardrobe notoriety? Low, Abolition candidate for Governor, is chief of the Custom House, and lie and the corrupt crew under him desire to con trol the Stale—dcsi r e to become the mas ters of the people. Recollect that the patty in power, whose representative Low is, has squundirid on favorites and stolen from the public treasury, millions of dollars. Recollect if you keep them in power they w ill increase your already excessive taxes three folil ! Vote the Democratic ticket and your taxes a ill be ■ reduced, capable and honest men will conduct public affairs, and peace will 1 soon he restored. Stand to Yota Posts, Democrats.— Let nothing induce you to desert your posts on the day of election, Democrats, until the polls shall have been closed Yield to no temptation, be purstinded by no inducement, led away by no excite ment A cunning, unscrupulous, treach erous enemy is watching • your move ments, anxious to take advantage of your absence to tamper with the ballot box.

St your j •* \t Trxees?sN*2, therefore, to stand by, wptch and guard them. , Don't allow hired Custom House bullies— | our county is swarming with them—to intimidate you or 6tufF the ballot box. White Men's Govemniixnt.—Do not forget, TOters, that the Democracy of Cal ifornia hold with Stephen A. Douglas, that “thia Government is made on the white basi8,by white men,for the benefit of white men and their posterity forever." The candidates on the Abolition ticket hold the opposite doctrine and insist upon placing negroes upon an equality with white men. Leaders of this party have boasted that if they carry the election they will pass a law granting the right of suffrage to the ne u*t<**.„ Rebuke these partisans of the ne groes and oppressors of white men by vo ting the full Democratic ticket Remember, voters, that the candidates on the ticket headed by Custom House Low, arc the followers of Garrison, Gid dings, Phillips, Fred Douglass, old John Brown and other Abolition traitors. Re- j member that they want to introduce ne- | pro Jabor into this State to reduce the j wages of white men. Remember that they arc warring against your interests to 1 keep in power a band of traitors and t swindlers who have robbed the Govern ment of three hundred millions of dollars. Examine yoi'k Tickets.— Knowing the worthless character of the Abolition lead ers and their adroitness at forgery, it is reasonable to suppose that they have had punted and circulated large numbers of spurious Democratic tickets—tickets head ed “ Democratic," hut having some of their candidates substituted for ours.— Carefully examine your tickets before voting, fiend*, and see that they contain the names of the nominees at the head of nur [taper—all the names. All others arc forgeries. Be Active! —We hope our Democratic friends in all parts of proud old El Dora do. will arouse themselves, and not rest until proper steps arc taken to poll every Democratic vote in the county. The re sult in our county is looked for with deep solicitude l»y the Democracy everywhere, and we should use nur hist endeavors to exceed the expectations of our friends.— We are fighting in a holy cause—for that which good men prize most — the liberty, the honor and dignity of the American people—fighting to preserve our inde pendence and save our country from a military despotism which threatens to crush our free institutions. — — Cameron Again. —This besotted per sonation of public corruption seized upon the late ox- itement in Pennsylvania, as an opportunity for again poking his ugly countenance above the silt face of the slough of oblivion to which the public voice had condemned him. lie even be s'imcd the nohh- name of McClellan with fulsome adulation, and ottered t» go iiim vlf to war as a piivate soldier.

Celts*, July 97th, 1S63. «uf1w4 Dare they Answer?— The Republican candidates profess to be warm friends of the Union, and if they are sincere they will not hesitate to answer the following; if they are not sincere, but merely bawl ing for the Union to deceive the people, they will not answer : Are you in favor of the Constitution as it is and the Union as it was—the Union of our fathers?— Would you welcome the return of the Southern States Into the Union precisely as they were before the rebellion broke out? Dt> j-»a be*!??:- 'bii V. ' ' ' of the Supreme Court are binding? Do you believe in a “ higher law" than the Constitution ? Do you believe that John Brown "acted nobly” in his raid into Virginia ? Do you believe that Lincoln was a traitor when he opposed the “Gov ernment" during the Mexican war? Are you in favor of “ letting the Union slide' in the event that the sectional views of four party are reptfcVvffid by the people ? Are you in favor of taxing the people of California millions of dollars to free, feed, clothe and educate the negroes of the South ? Are you in favor of the con scription act? Are you in favor of green backs ? Answer, candidates of the green back party, if you dare ? ... — Gagged. —Some surprise has been ex pressed at the non-appearance before the people of Low, the Abolition candidate for Governor. Is he ashamed to fnee the people whose suffrages he seeks? Is he convinced that if they should see him they would vote against him ? Is his stupidity of such a mailed character that lie is compelled to remain silent for fear of exposing his ignorance? Is he afraid to avow his treasonable sentiments be ore the loyal masses? Or is the rumor true that his friends have gagged him ? The people want to see Low —want to see the man who meekly wears John Conness’ collar. They know Downey and are pleased with his appearance and record; and they want to see his opponent. ■ ■■ In 1600, John P. Hale, the Abolition Senator from New Hampshire, presented a petition to the Senate, prayiny that ne groes should be enrolled in the militia.— Hcpry Clay promptly arose from his seat and moved that the prayer of the petition be rijected, and said that he hoped “ the abominable prayer of the petition would be rejected”, by a "decisive, indignant and unanimous vote of the whole body." Enrolling the negroes in the militia. Mr- Clay said. “ is to do what no man can conceive or dream of without horror and dismay.” Like every other good and great man of our country, Henry Clay detested Abolitionists, the men who have the effrontery to ask the people of Cali furiiia for their support. Beware or False Reports.—On the eve of an election the people should ex- ' ercise great caution before giving creilit to political rumors. Recollect, reader, that the telegraph is under the control — the exclusive control—of agen'R of the Administration, and they will pend to California just reports as will bene fit their party. They have done so be fore, by order of Lincoln & Co., and they will do it again. A party which stole ; the private correspondence of loyal citi zens in violation of decency and law, will not hesitate to forge and circulate reports , ngainst the Democratic party. The Ad ministration has in its employ in this State four thousand office holders, who have received instructions to elect the Abolition ticket at any sacrifice, and they will do it if money, threats and lying can accomplish their object. Don't believe a word the villainous hirelings may say. Beak in mind, voters of El Dorado, that the Democratic pai ty desire to prc. j serve the whole Constitution and the , whole Union. They are pledged to main- ! tain the Constitution as it is and to re store the Union ns it was—the good old Union conseciated by the blood of the patriots of the Revolution. Bear in mind, that the Abolition candidates, Low £ Co., are w orking to destroy the old Union and speak derisively of the Constitution. AhCrive. —Thaddeus Stevens, the lea der ol the Administration party in Con gress, said he would rather grant the , right of suffrage to a negro than to an Irishman or German. He but uttered the sentiment of his party—a party whHi couits adopted citizens before nu election and abuses them afterwards. Keep it before the People, that Simon Cameron, in the short space often months, stole from the national treasury eight mil- : lion of dollars, not one cent of which has • he returned to the Government, nor has lie been arrested or punished for his lainy. Keep it before the People, that Demo cratic editors have been arrested and im pri.-oned for exposing the rascality of Catncron and other Republican thieves- Keep it before the People, that the Re publican party of California have nomi nated for important State offices, detected and exposed spies and informers—the fellows of wardrobe notoriety—thus hold ing out a premium for baseness.
