A, Bishop, Chief Engineer of the PUcer rillo and Sacramento Valley Railroad Compa ny. rep* rted to the Board of Supervisors, at their mectiog on Monday, that " the road is graded and in condition to receire the lies and iron, from Its intersection with the Sacramento Vallay Railroad at Folsom to the boundary line of El Dorado County, near Carson Creek—a dietaoce of eight and one-quarter ntilea.” The Board ordered that “the Chairman of the Board, the County Auditor and the County Treasurer, constituting the Railroad Commissioners of Ibis County, be directed to issue bonds in the sums of lire hundred dollars and one thousand dollars, in equal proportions, for the amount of the first instalment of ten per cent, upon the amount of the subscription of the County, as required by the Board of Directors of said Railroad Company; said bonds to bear interest at tbe rate of ten per cent, per annum, from the date of issue, November 5, 1863, and the principal made payable in twelve years from Mid date, at the office of the Treasurer uf El Dorado County, -and the interest to be paid acmi-annnally, on tbe 5th of May and the'Slh of November in each yeur.” In accordance with the above order, the Railroad Commis sioners issued the bonds; and the Chairman of tbe Board of Supervisors, baring presented tbe bonds duly signed to the County Clcik were countersigned by hint in the presence of the Board of Supervisors, and the seal of the County Court affixed to each. J. C. McTurna ban, one of the Board, wus authorised to de liver the bonds to the Secretary of tbe Railroad Company. Arrangements are being made in New York, we understand, to procure the ne cessary material to put the road in running or der. Everything looks favorable for the speedy completion uf tbe road to Placetville. AncBBisuop Allsuanv's Visit to El Dorado Couxtt.— Most Rev. Archbishop Allcmuny made his Episcopal Visitation during the week in tbe several churches under tbe care of Rev. Farther Largun, Pastor. Oa Ounduy last— “ Feast of All SaiDts”— he officiated at St. Pul rick's, in this city. High Mass was sung by the Rev. Pastor at 11 o'clock, a. as., at which the Archbishop presided. A very large congrega tion, consisting of persona of all denomina tions, were present. After the communion liis Grace delivered a most instructive and able sermon in English; at the conclusion of which be preached in Spanish, end at the same time made a few salutary remarks to tbe French and German portion of the congregation. After moss he admin istered the sacrament of confirm ation to a large number of children, assisted by Father Largan and a German priest. Solemn vespers were chanted in the evening, at which the Archbishop assisted. The members of St. Patrick's Society and the Ladies’ Altnr Soc.ety, look their places outside the sanctuary, both wearing their regalia. In front of these were the children, robed in white, who,in the morn ing, had received Confirmation. They were beaded by Ibeir banner, as were also the mem bers of tbe oilier Socit ties. At tbe conclusion of Vespers Father Largun preached; after which the Most Rev. Archbishop gave tbe ben ediction with the blessed sacrament. The church in tbe evening, as at 11 o’clock mass was densely crowded,—muny persona were obliged to go away, not being able to enter the church. The entire aspect, inside and around the sanctuary, was calculated to impress all persons with religious feelings and sentiments of devotion. On the mornings of Monday and Tuesday, the Archbishop administered con firmation to a large number of children «ad tome adults. Previous to the administration of the sacrament on Tuesday morning. Father Adolesh (German) delivered u pious and in structive sermon in the German languuge. On Tuesday evening His Grace proceeded to St. John's church, Coloma. On Wednesday morn •og ho celebrated muss in the above-named church. After mass he preached a most im pressive sermon and afterwards administered confirmation to a large number of children and adults. The congregation wus indeed credita ble to the Catholics of Coloma who, consider ing that God had again sent among them the chief Pastor of their souls, came cn masse to share in tbe blessings he wished to impart. In the afternoon of Wednesday His Grace left Coloma to visit St. James' church at George town. Uere.us in Coloma, the Catholics seem ed to forget that it was one of the six (lavs of labor, and in their zeal hastened, as on Sunday, to assist at the Archbishop's mass, which was celebrated at 9 o'clock. At the conclusion of mass be preached both in English and Spanish, and afterwards administered the sacrament of confirmation to a large number of children.— From thence he returned to Pluccrville, and on Friday morning departed from our midst for tome other portion of bis Diocese, having left many blessings in our city- and other places, and carrying with him the well wishes of ail, and the prayers and blessings of the many whom be consecrated to the service of God.

Hiatory teeche* us that the arrests of “State PrisoneiSj” and their incarcera tion in the Tower bf London and French Bastiles, without trial, and the con tinea lion of property to the Government upon such imprisonments, led not only to the revolutions in England and France which established the writ of habeas corpus and destroyed the Bastile, but led the framers of the Constitution of the United States to incorporate in that instrument provis ions which were never, under any cir cumstances, to be interfered with, in war or peace, by any department, or all the departments together, of the Government of the United Stated Suspending the Constitution under the plea of “ military necessity" is a new idea, and as prepos terous as new. The pure and illustrious framers of that sacred instrument knew that it would be dangerous to place al most unlimited power, such as President Lincoln claims and illegally exerc : scs, in the hands of one man, and they wisely conferred but little power upon officers of Government, and they pluced the exer cise of it under wholesome restraints,— They knew that “power is insinuating and grasping,” and in the hands of weak, bad or ambitious men would prove de structive of the liberties of the people. There are some rights which the Con stitution secures to the humblest and meanest citizen, and it is undeniable that some of these have been trampled upon by those who have sworn to support the Constitution. They have no respect for laws or Constitutions, when cither mili tate against the miserable creed of their party. They place their pai ty platform above both, and deprive citizens of their rights for opposing it. A distinguished jurist says that “ mere expressions of opinion, or criticism upon public men or moveuffents, however severe or unjust, or free discussion concerning public men or policy, or the peaceful advocacy of erro neous doctrines, or the exercise of other lawful rights pertaining to the privilege of citizenship, does not constitute trea son,” and yet, for exercising some of the rights above mentioned, citizens have been arrested and imprisoned for treason, and their property has been destroyed, and this, too, by the professed advocates of the “ Constitution and the enforcement of the laws”! The President may sus pend the writ of habeas corpus at his pleasure, Republicans may rob loyal citi zens and destroy their property, party leaders and pets of the Administration may swindle the Government out of mill ions of dollars, military upstarts may de stroy' ballot boxes and depose legally elected servants of the people, and pen sioned speakers an'd thoughtless persons will justify and even commend their acts, hut let Democrats question the constitu tionality of the one or denounce the infa tnous and lawless proceedings of the oth ar, and they are stigmatised as traitors and punished for treason. Is this not so’ Have we not stated facts well known to every intelligent reader ? Ought not such disgraceful and tyrannical proceed ings arouse the indignation of every true American? If tamely submitted to, will not the result be fatal to free institutions? Worthy or Note.— It is worthy of note thaA.aU the cruel, barbajrqiJtVjtU'i vindic tive measures of this Administration have been originated by the meek-eyed, silver tongued,gentle-hearted philanthropists of other days—by men who have shuddered at the idea of hanging a murderer, flog ging a negro, or going to war to'vindicate our national rights or honor. They now witness unmoved, with silent tongue and stony hearts, white men manacled and driven at the point of the bayonet into the army. Had they witnessed anything of the kind during nnr war with Mexico, how the cowardly scoundrels would bare burled their curses upon the Administra tion. These men have dug the graves of hundreds of thousands of American citi zens, and are now calling loudly for more blood. And they arc hacked in every city and town by pensioned miscreants, some of whom, unfortunately for the country, arc at the head of influential journals. Patriotic.— New Bedford, Massachu setts, is the hotbed of Abolitionism. The Congressional district, of which it is the centre, is the strongest Republican dis trict in the United States. In it two thousand nine hundred and sixteen men were drafted. Of these the Government gets just forty-five men. Sixty-eight paid comminution ; three hundred and eighty two furnished substitutes, and seventeen hundred and forty were exempted. In the Portland district in Maine,nine-tenths of the drafted inen—a large majority of them Abolitionists, Democrats being very scarce in that courageous district —fled to Canada in order to escape fighting the rebels. The New York Argus is responsible for the following: Abolition Motto.— Shoulder straps for negroes—handcuffs for white men. Patriotism now means the surrender of manhood and servilo submission to the behests of usurped power. Ir you want your washing well done, buy a D-ishaway. The following ii the official vote of ou r County for District Judge : Johnson (Demo crat) 1035; Brockway, (Abolitionist) 2033; and for County Judge, Shearer, (Dem.) 1024. Squires, (Abo.) 2117. Elictiox or OrncsKs.— At u meeting of the Hoard of Truate.es of Ihe Big Canon Copper Mining Company, held at their office in Pl.icer ville, on the 5ih instant, the following officers were elected : William T. Henson, President B. H. Duncan, Treasurer; Silas B. Smith, Sec retary ; A. ©win, Superintendent. Military Despotism.—It is painfully apparent to every lover of free institu tions that we are absolutely in the midst of • solitary despotism, which encour ages mob violence and protects those en gaged in it. There is no more civil law for the protection of the citizen in the en joyment of his political rights—rights heretofore respected and regarded as sa cred—rights which our fathers acquired by their blood and bequeathed to us.— The Constitution, which was made to guarantee those rights, and especially the freedom of the press and of speech, is wantonly and wickedly and audaciously trampled under foot by those who have sworn to defend it. A white man, who is not an Abolitionist, has no rights that Abolitionists are bound to respect. A Democrat who is opposed to the Admin istration has no claims on the Govern ment for protection. The Republicans ( are patriots—their opponents, "traitors." This is a strange, sad picture, but is •‘it not true ? Are not loyal men suspected, denounced, arrested, imprisoned or exiled without the slightest evidence of guilt? — on the mere statement of malignant, un scrupulous, peijurcd Abolition informers? Has not the Administration employed a band of spies to watch the movements and report the utterances of Democrats? Has a single Abolitionist been arrested or even molested or rebuked for preaching treason ? Are not Democrats daily villi fled for advocating “ the Constitution as it is and the Union as it was"? Has not the Administration *• affected to render the military independent of, and superior to, the civil power"? Has it not appoint- ' ed “ military governors" in States of the Union? Have not the military interfered w ith elections, tak- n possession of the polls, destroyed ballot boxes and prevent ed citizens from exercising tlie right of: suffrage? Uave they not mobbed print ing offices and insulted and shot citizens, ; and defied State authorities? They have. We all know it. It is a matter of history, i Does not this prove that a military dcs ■ pnlism rules the people of United States? — ■ - -« A Piiopuecy V ekified.— In a debate in the United States Senate, in 185C, Win. 11. Seward, Mr. Lincoln’s Secretary of; State, uttered the following significant language: “The State that begins with denying ! the habeas corpus to the meanest and j most obscure of her citizens, will not be ! long in reaching a more indiscriminate ■ prosciiption." The prediction is already, in the main, ! verified ; but who, at the time it was ut- i tcred, was prepared to believe that the distinguished prophet would himself be a j chief instrument in the denial of the great ' writ, and in the proscription executed?; But, we must add, it is not “ indiscrimi nate proscription” the unscrupulous Sec retary directs or favors. Only those w ho do not sustain the reckless, unconstitu tional and despotic acts of the Adminis tration arc proscribed. Seward, the Prophet, and Seward, the Premier, think differently, it appears. He is the advo- [ cate of a sterner doctrine now that his I party is in power. The possession of power has had a wonderful effect on his i principles, and has transfoimed the amia ble Senator into a severe Secretary. ' R.’.tkcw Inconsistent.— It Is an indls- j putable fact that when men or newspa- ' pers in the South advocate a peaceful set- ’ tlement of our national troubles, they are encouraged by the Republicans and re ferred to as fast friends of the Union.— j When Northern men and journals advo cate a similar policy, they are denounced by the same Republicans as “ traitors." ' Why is it patriotic in one section of the country to advocate peace, and in another stigmatised as treason? Republican jour nals assure us that there is a strong Union sentiment at the South, and that j the Union men are anxious for peace, and , they arc praised for entertaining sucli sentiments; but to entertain similar sen timents in the North, say these same journals, is infamous! How consistent! i — No Opposition. —What a happy time the plunderers of the Government, the violators of law, the robbers of the liber ties of the people, would have, if the Democrats would disband their organiza tion and join in upholding a corrupt and tyrannical. Administration.' IIow the Camerons and Morgans and Fremonts and Butlers would enjoy their stolen riches! These swindlers and the party which they represent say that, when the country is engaged in war, there must he no opposition to the Administration—nn censure of its measures- no exposure of the villainy of its agents. Under this theory, therefore, to keep nn Administra tion perpetually in power, it is only ne cessary to keep the nation continually at war. The doctrine is slavish and detest able, and is not ndopted even in monarch ical countries. Foil the Union. —The supporters of the Administration claim to be the espe cial friends of the Union. All outside of their wretched organization are traitors to the Government. Is their claim well founded ? Did not the Convention which nominated Lincoln for the Presidency ob ject to the word “ national” and strike it out of their platform ? Did not the par ty which elected Lincoln rally around a sectional flag in 1866? Did it not pro claim on “ irrepressible conflict” between the North and the South? Was it not then, nnd is it not now, the exponent of the Northern, and not the National senti ment ? Had it an organization in any but the free Status? lias it not warred, since its first against the institutions of n number of the States composing the Union ? Certainly. How insufferably hypocritical in its leaders and followers to claim to b« Union meo 1 •• Tot Constitution tnd its (uarsntess are our birthright, and I am ready to en force that inalienable right to the last extent." The above words were uttered on the first day of May, 1881, by Stephen A. Dougins. Less than four weeks after wards he was told that he was dying, and asked if he would send a message to his sons. His answer was—“ Tell them to obey the laws and support the Constitu tion." These were his dying words. He justly <f<''“> i d*red the Constitution of more value th-m.j the Union. He said, in reply to Seward’s “ higher law” doctrine— “ What is the Union worth, unless the Constitution is preserved and maintained inviolate in all its provisions ?" The De mocracy are pledged to preserve and maintain it —the Republicans are endeav oring to overthrow it 7 They ridicule those who cherish and defend it, and say it is suspended in war times. What right has Lincoln to be President, if the Constitution is suspended ? Is he not President by virtue of it * Ha< he any other title ? Does he not derive his pow er and authority from it* If the instru ment that makes hint President is a nul lity in times of war, is not the creature it makes powerless * Tiie Coktkabands. —The Administra tion has freed, and the people are heavily . taxed to feed and clothe thousands of 1 idle and worthless contrabands. Their > freedom does not seem to have improved | their condition. In a few years the free States will be overrun by them, and their labor will come into competition with the labor of the poor white men, who will he 1 forced to work for *• starvation wages." The *• poor white trash’’of the North, deprived of their liberties and impover ished,will be reduced to the contraband's level, and be made to feel the superiority of the aristocratic *• lords of the loom.” — A correspondent of the Cincinnati Ga zette, writing recently from Nateluz, says : “ There are now about C 000 negroes in camp, in Natchez; out of these 300 will he lit for military duty. What is to become ol the rest» How shall they he supported, fed and clothed » Tile United Stales Government ennnot undertake to support them, and they will not do any thing for themselves. They sicken and die in camps very fast indeed. They will not take care of each other. They seein to be very selfish, and the only idea of freedom they have is to bask idly in the sun. How long it will take to so far counteract the baleful iotluences of the life they have led, as to render them both able and willing to support themselves, none can tell, but it seems to me that the great problem forced upon us by the re bellion, is growing greater and more dif ficult cveiy day.” lli'MBi'c.—Tiie Stockton Independent copies and comments upon what purports to be ** resolutions of a Democratic con vention held at Decatur, Illinois.” The Independent pi endeavoring to humbug its readers by calling the Decatur con vention a “ Democratic convention."— It knows the convention was got up and controlled by federal officials—by rene gades and sycophants. The Joliet Signal says it was a slim affair, or.ly about fifty delegates being present, three-fourths of whom were Icderal office-holders and un adulterated Abolitionists, who assumed the name of'* War Democrats” to deceive the people. Every Democratic paper in tiie State, without a single exception,.r.id-. iculed its managers and exposed their du plicity, and the convention has become the laughing stock of the State. The cheat was so transparent that the more respectable Republican journals spoke of it with contempt. Try some other dodge, Mr. Independent; the Decatur convention is an exploded humbug. We have too much respect for your intelligence to be lieve you nro duped by it. A Coppeiiiiead. —President Lincoln, before he became a convert to radicalism, said in bis inaugural: '■ Happily the human mind is so con stituted that no party can reach the au dacity of denying any right plainly writ ten in the Constitution. If, hr nny mere force of numbers, a majoiity should de prive a minority of any clearly written constitutional right, it might, in a moral point of view, justify revolution." It is quite evident that President Lin coln, if he held the same doctrine now, would be classed by hig own friends as a copperhead. Has not his party, ‘‘by the mere force of numbers," deprived Demo crats of “ clearly written constitutional rights" S’ Has lie not sanctioned such unwarrantable and tyrannical proceed ings * Lincoln preaches one thing and practices another, and violates his obliga tions with supreme indifference. A New Spectacle is America. —The Trenton (New Jersey) Gazette has the following account of conscripts or substi tutes passing through New Jersey to the Army of tiie Potomac : “ Several conscripts were- marched through our streets ton blacksmith shop, for the purpose of having the irons ad justed, to prevent any furthor attempt to desert." Total Vote.— The total vote of our county, at the judicial election, was but 3352—a fall ing off of two thousand in less than two months. The Abolitionists turned out al most to a man, and polled, we believe, their legitimate vote. Many Democrats, seeing the fruitlessness of contending against promises, money and fraud, refused to go to the polls. An Administration, by far the weakest and most corrupt known to our history, has recier ed the indorsement of the people, and they have encouraged it to continue in its mischiev ous course. Unless all history proves a lie, thev will repent in dust aud ashes of their thoughtlessness. Rev. W. W. Dana will preach in the Pres byterian church to-morrow, at U o’clock, a. m. and 7 p. h.

In the investifttion of the mighty ietuea pending bef<»fe the people, we are met, nt the ▼ery threshold with the question, ” Wbmt is ibe'Union? w __ „ , A •• What is united? Howr united? For what purposes.united?" are pertinent questions with reference to that Union w hich is, at present, the subject of so much excited controversy. “ States" are united ; for the Constitution of the United States variously denominates the Government created by its adoption, ** the United States," 4 * the United States of Ameri ca," 44 the Government of the United States." The States are united itpoQ the exact terms and conditions specified in the Constitution ; and for purposes specified in, and upparent from, an investigation of that instrument. It is not my purpose to go further into con stitutional disquisitions, than is necessary in order to a fair discussion of existing issues. In order to a fair understanding of the sub ject, it is best to consider it under appropriate subdivisions. It is a doctrine of all free governments, that too much power should never be given to one man or one body of men. In the government of a people, laws must be made, causes must be tried, and obedience must be enforced to the judgments and decrees of Courts. If some one man could make uJ laws, decide all controversies, and enforce, ac cording to his own discretion, uII judgments and decrees of Courts, be would be a greater despot than Hny that uow exists, or ever did exist. The same aggregate of powers vested in fifty men instead of one, would make fifty despots insleud of one. All human experience teaches, that man is prone to abuse power. Hence it is, that all free governments provide certain safeguards against that tendency. Unlimited powers are neither confided to one man nor one body of isteu. — The different departments of the government are so organized, that each one operates as a check upon the others. The Government of the United States was established by men jealous of their rights, and cautious of parting with power. True to their instincts, they divided the powers of the newly created government, between the legislative, judicial, and executive departments. 1 will here define terms by siyiug that legislative power makes laws, judicial power expounds , them, and executive power enforces their exe cution. With exceptions, which it is unnecessary to notice ul present, the Constitution vesta the legislative power in Congress, the judicial puwer in the Courts, and the executive power | m the president. There are wise purposes for which certain powers are confided to each department "t tt»e government. As applicable to each depait meiit separately, the Constitution has provided cerium saf< guards against the ubu>e of power. There is, oil ihe part of the people, a just medium to be observed, between excessive jealousy on the one hand, and excessive confi dence on the other. Excessive jealous* may deprive us of the benefits which would Mow trom a wise, efficient, and energetic cxcictscof Constitutional poweis. Excessive confidence may accoid to lawlessness the obedience ami respect which urc due to law, and bind us in I the chains of an inexorable Uespoiisni The more every citizen and even officer per forms his duly, i lit* more are the best inter eats of our common country udvanced. Every citi zen should, Iberel re, discharge his own duty, according to the best of his ability ; and use his best endeavors to see that every ofliccr, both State and National, does ihe same thing. It is the duly of every patriotic citizen, to carefully observe existing tendencies. Where he meets with excessive, jealousy, he should aim to allay it. Where he meets with exces sive confidence, he should aun to remove it, and to arouse, in its stead, a well-founded jealousy. It must be borne in mind that there is, in the Constitution of ihe United .States, m» Article. Section, or clause, that is not part and parcel of the Union. It follows, as a consequence, that the powers which the Constitution has separately vested in each department of the government, should be sustained in their full vigor, in order to sustain the Union li follows, also, that all the checks, hallances, and safe guards, which the Constitution has <te»i%ed against the abuse of now er. should accomplish I the object! for which they were intended, in j order to sustain the Union. Tendencies may well be noticed, for a pur pose which I have not mentioned. When, if ai all, public agents, through timidity, shrink ■ from a judicious exercise of Constitutional |towers, we should aim to inspire them with greater boldness. When, on the other hand, they uie guilty of mauilest usurpation, we should fearlessly and unhesitatingly condemn them. ’ James joilnson. « Elecaxt.— -Dan Booker’s place, "The Metro- 1 politun Bathing and Hair-dressing Saloon," is one of the most elegantly furnished establish ments of the kind in the whole country, and is the place to get a luxurious bath nr com fortable shave, or to have your hair dressed “at the top of the mode." “ Booker's Vegetable wliM'b he is proprietor, t ought to be used by every lady, and gentleman, too, as it ie really an elegant and valuable prepara tion.
