PZJhOXnVILLE, OA.L, November 14, 18G3. ■ Mir4.r Txa OXTV AND COUNTY. Rain.— The long looked for, much needed end welcome rain came dancing down in great gleeon Wednesday and Thursday nights. The thirsty earth soon drank up the refreshing drops. If the aspect of the heavens beany criterion by which to judge we may reasonably expect to hear no more complaints of dust and drought for many a long day. We are no grumbler at the dispensation of Providence,aud therefore we say if the programme be "raiu” we are ready to greet it kindly. We are tired of dust and mud is an agreeable change, though we should prefer to be without that luxury.— The farmers wanted rain, the hotel keepers wanted rain, the merchants wanted ruin, *• in short,” everybody wanted rain,and us we have bad it, w ith a prospect of more in a short time, everybody seems pleased. AWeody our city has experienced its revivifying influence : busi ness has improved, prospects brightened and health and,strength returned to the sick find weak. Tbe air is cool, fresh und bracing, and a new life seemi to be infttsdd into everything. Ora Stbssts are daily thronged with huge “ Mountain clspper,” heavily laden with mer chandise, for our own aud the markets of Vir ginia, Aurora and Reese River. Teamsters don't apprehend any difficulty in crossing the mountain s at all seasons. The proprietors of tbe different toll roads have made arrange ments to keep them open all w inter, no matter how serere tbe weather may be. Large and substantial bridges span the creeks and river, and no fears need be entertained of their being ■wept away by floods. At almost any hour of the day from fifteen to twenty wagons may be seen, either passing up or down Main street, or receiving or discharging freight. Pack trains arc also coming again on the road. The dull season, we hope, has left us never to return. To supply tbe demand on the other side of the mountains will take a lurge number of teams and pack trains, and as the other routes are impassable in tbe winter they will all have to come through Placerrille, which will make times lively for mouths to come. Robbies.— Our country is filled with danger ous and desperate characters, who have com mitted many robberies of late. We hear of them in every portion of our county. A few nights ago, we learn, two robbers entered the store of a Chinaman at Johntown and took from tbe proprietor a sum of money. John showed fight and a scuffle ensued, in w hich tbe Chinaman was badly beaten, but not w ith out inflicting severe puuisbment on his assail ants. Near Fairplay a store was rubbed and a miner's cabin broken open; nothing worth taken was found. Tbe Georgetown stage w as stopped on Monday morning near Greenwood Valley and tbe passengers robbed of their mon ey. Near Freuchtown on Tuesday a strager was robbed of forty dollars by two highway men, mounted and heavily armed, who rode off in the direction of Amador couoly. Seve ral attempts have been made to enter dwellings in our city, but without success. Our citizens must be cautious and our Police watchful. Wx sincerely regret to announce the death of Col. John A. McDougall. He died sudden ly on tbe 11th instant, at Austin, N. T. He was long a resident of our county, and was esteemed forhi9 manly and generous qualities. He was s good citizen, a warm friend, u kind indulgent, husband, and fond fa ther. He was born in Galway, Ireland, emi grated to New York when he was but ten years old, aud came to California in tbe spring of 1850, and soon after settled in our county.— Few men in our county had truer friends or more numerous acquaintances. Winteb Quarters.— Large droves of cattle, in excellent condition,almost daily pass through our city eo route for the Southern counties.— In the summer, w ben the “plums” are parched, they are driren to tbe mountains—their Sara toga and Newport—where they luxuriate iu the rich pastures found there after the snows melt. New Goods. —S. Bamberger, a gentleman of taste, has just returned from San Francisco with a large supply of Full and Winter cloth ing, bools, shoes, hats, etc., selected by him self for bis numerous friends and customers. Oor readers are advised to look in upon him, if they want neat aud fashionable goods at low prices. Cozv Place. —Reader, do you ever indulge in billiards, lager til the “condiments”.' If you do,drop into the neat and comfortubleqnn ters of our old friend Sieg, and you cun gratify your taste. He lias removed his billiard table and bar from tbe basement to the room ubore, which he has fitted up handsomely. For the benefit of tbe hungry he has a free lunch at all hours. Robbers About.—A friend writing from Pilot Hill under date of November 7th, says : “ On Friday lust two men stopped at Ferguson’s hotel, on the road leading from Centerville to Georgetown. They left early in the morning, carrying with them two shot guns. About u quarter of a mile from the house they stopped a teamster Darned Thompson, and robbed hint of |40; they went then to the Black Rock ranch, called for breakfast, and in payment presented a pistol at Willson and made bim give up his purse, containing $-20. They took possession of tbe house, overhauling the trunks and stole some jewelry. They then proceeded to a camp of Chinamen and robbed it. The rob bers are stoutly built and dark complexioned. No one seems disposed to arrest them, though both areknowD.” A Succession of TRA srns.—At each and •very Fair held in 1860, Grover & Barer were awarded the highest premiums for IheirSewing Machines aad Machine work. In 1S61 thesame awards were made them ; likewise in 1862; and thus far at every Slate, and numerous District Fatrs held in 1863, they have received the high est premium when exhibited in competion with other machines. Among others, in 18C8, we are apprised of First Premiums at the Oregon New York, Vermont, Iowa, Kentucky, Illinois! Indiana and Michigan State FRirs. Certainly no better evidence of tbe superior merits of the “ Gbotib A Barer” need be adduced ibau the fact that their “ new style” noiseless machine has invariably taken the palm, and borne ofl the bigheat honors in every instance, when ex hibited, since its introduction in I860. Uonsi Burned.— We learn that Hunter's Exchange, (13 Mile House) nn the Carson road, wu burned to the ground on Wednesday after noon. It was tbe property of Messrs. McKin ter, cad w« aodsritsnd was insured. A Vote* fr«B the DtU. In (his season of funaticisin, madness and villainy, it may not be inappropriate to quote the admonitions, now unheeded, of the “ great dead." Henry Clay, tho honored and brilliant champion of the once great and powerful and respect able Whig party, in a speech delivered at Frankfort, (Ky.) November, 1850, dep recating agitation in regard to the fugi tive slave law, persisted in by the Aboli tionists—the Sumners. Wilsons, Wades, ’Chases and other Icjders of the present dominant party —made use of the follow ing emphatic language, which we reprint for tbe benefit of those of his devoted ad mirers who yet survive, as also for the consideration of every citizen who may have at beart the true interests of his country in the present dep'orable crisis. Mr. Clay said : “ If the agitation in regard to the fugi tive slave law should continue and in crease, and become alarming, it will lead to the formation of two new parties, one for the Union', the other against the Un ion. ***** i | )aV c had great hopes and confidence in the principles of the Whig party, as being most likely to conduce to the prosperity and the glory of my country ; but if it be merged into a contemptible Abolition party and if Ab olitionism is to be engrafted on the Whig creed, that mninedt I renounce the party and cease to be a Whig." The voice of the mighty statesman of the West comes up'fronr the secret ctamr bers of the dead, in tones of warning, persuasion and condemnation. As freshly and ns appropriately is it heard speaking out, at this particular crisis, as w hen of yore its thunders shook the halls of our National Council Chambers, or when the woodclad hills and verdant vales of his be loved Kentucky echoed its sweetness.— Though often raised in support of mea sures which, as a Democrat, we believe were opposed to the best interests of the country, yet never was it heard in the advocacy of any policy adverse to the honor and prosperity of the Union — nev er in derision of the law or mockery of the Constitution. Mr. Clay was a pa triot although a partisan, and when the safety and honor of his country were at stake, he had the courage and the hones ty and the greatness of soul to lift him self above the wretched consideration of party policy. Before his death he wit nessed " the beginning of the end” of the old Whig party, ns foreshadowed in the extract above. lie saw tho feeble craft breaking loose its moorings beside the rock of the Constitution, the one portion drifting fast into the murky waters of Know Notliingism, and tbe other into the still darker and more dangerous whirl pool of Abolition fanaticism. Hence it was that in the evening of his gloriuus career he was found standing side by side with the Democracy—with the party that had ever condemned Abolitionism. And there to-day, if alive, he would be found. Upon tho dissolution of the Whig par ty, hundreds of thousands of the conserv ative minded followers of Mr. Clay at the North, having no sympathy for, nor sen timent in common with any of the count less isms of fanaticism and disunion, so life in that region, sought shelter under the only banner that had inscribed upon its folds, tlie “ Union and the Constitu tion.” That banner was tho banner of Democracy. Since then they have fought side bf side with the true men of the Democratic party, making common cause with them against the common enemy.— Unfortunately the Democracy have been weakened bv desertion —by tlicapostaey of many men who have sold themselves to the Administration. Under the glare of false colors Dix, Dickinson, Holt and other sycophants and renegades, have led a portion of them into the Abolition camp. Though the unscrupulous and intriguing apostates may carry away a number of the rank and file, deceiving them with false colors, from the army of the faithful, yet they will discover the imposition attempted upon them ere long, and return to their own people. Democ racy, notwithstanding their seemingly hopeless prospects, will, at no distant day, be once more in the ascendant. A vast majority of the American people still cherish the princples of the Democratic party and pray for the triumph of that party. If Mr. Clay were now alive his stento rian voice would be heard from one end of this broad land to the other, calling upon the friends of the Union, the Con stitution ami liberty, to rally around the flag of the great National Democracy, as the only hope to save the Union from destructi in. He would denounce, with lofty indignation and burning eloquence, the "contemptible Abolition party" which now administers the Government, and denounces every man as a “ traitor ” who follows in his footsteps. “ Standing with unsandalcd feet upon the hallowed ground of tho Constitution, and laying his hand upon the altar, he would urge every true American to put down the Abolition par ty-” Abolitionism. —What lias the triumph of Abolitionism accomplished * It found the American people prosperous, content ed and neighborly ; it has sown among them the seeds of disunion, misety, pov erty, terror and fratricidal hate, which bid fair to end in their destruction as a nation. Is there not a conservative ele ment among us strong enough, fearless enough, to arrest and crush out this mis chievous funaticisin ? Is it not the duty of all patriotic men to unite for such an object ? Has not the country suffered enough from its corrupt and iron rule *— Is the prospect of peace brighter now than it was a year ago ? Does tho par ty in power desire peace ? Are not its leaders, fuvorites and agents growing rich out of the Union’s calamities ? Is Abo litionism worth the fearful price that has been paid for it ? Tue Aoxinisteatioe Wu«-—Tha Ad- j ministration has a way peculiarly its own of making converts and silencing opposi tion. Where it cannot conciliate it coer ces. It is familiar with all the applian ces of tyranny and uses them unsparingly, regardless of laws, justice or humanity. One of its organs, the Boston Journal, says : ' “ The Administration has determined not to retain any officer in the army whose views on the war policy is not in consonance, rsjib )i.t oi.M Cases still continue to be reported for dismissal for the use of what is termed disloyal or trea sonable language." The Maine Argus thus forcibly com ments on the above : Thus does the Ad ministration snap its whip at the man hood of its officers. It is as much worse than the whip of the plantation overseer as the manhood of a white man is better than the bod}’ of a negro. If there be anything ahead of this in the refinement of depotism we cinnot conceive of it. It is enough to make a patriot shudder at what is before us if this steady march of Administration despotism be not rebuked —sternly rebuked by the people. If such be the tyranny over officers, what must it be over the poor privates who have to expiate the crime of having an opinion, in the gatird house or with ball and chain ? Ilow long will it be at this rate before the private citizen will be forced by the bayonet to the present condition of the private soldier? It is the vilest of lies to say the private soldier is nllowed the privilege of voting. An of ficer places a ticket in his hand and or ders him to vote it, and if he refuses he is punished for disobedience of orders.— lie is completely at the mercy of bis su periors, w ithout any civil rights, and out side the pale civil protection. He knows the penalty of disobeying his superiors, and rather than subject himself to innu merable acts of oppression, he yields obc diance. To do otherwise, in his case, would be madness. Recklessness of Repcblican Politi cians.—“ Whether we have the right or not.wc are going to emancipate the slaves of the South,” says the New York Tri bune. "Nobody cares whether it is con stitutional or not,”says the Evening Post, speaking of the emancipation proclama tion. “ The liberties of the citizen are of subordinate importance,” says the Boston Journal. Thad. Stevens said, in a recent speech, “ the Union as it was, and the Constitution ns it is—God forbid it! — That may be Abolition doctrine, but it is the right doctrine." Ben. Butler, in his Harrisburg speech, said, “ I am not for the Union as it was." What trust can be placed in men so careless of rjght and wrong as these Abolition traitors avow themselves? These fellows don’t know what they say. If the constitution stands in the way of their platform they are ready to " drive through it"—ready to subvert the Government in order to main tain the supremacy of their party. And yet these miscreants profess to be uncon ditional Unionist, and sticklers for the enforcement of the laws ! CoKKfPT. — If Lincoln was not conscious his Administration is corrupt and con temptible and extravagant in the eyes of the people, would he issue proclamations prohibiting the people from discussing bis wicked acts ? Why does he shrink from discussion? A good Administration,like an honest man, has nothing to dread from criticism. It is only the criminal who dreads investigation. That policy which cannot stand criticism must be weak,dan gerous and disreputable, and ought to be and will be eventually, in spite of has tiles and bayonets, execrated by the pco ple. _ Discsionists. —Every man who sustains 1 the Administration indoscs its war policy. 1 Douglas said—“war is disunion — final and inevitable.” In a letter to a meeting in Fnnueil Hall, dated Washington, Feb ruary 2d, 1 SGI, Edward Everett said : — " To expect to hold fifteen States in the Union by force is preposterous." Doug las and Everett were right, hence all who sustain the Administration are disunion ists. Democrats tried to settle the diffi culty in the beginning by a peaceful and honorable compromise, but the Republi cans rejected all propositions and insisted upon a resort to arms. Their mischie vous course prevailed, and the people are now witnessing its baneful result. * ♦ A Mistake. —It is a mistake to believe the subjugation of one Section of the country by another is a restoration of the Union. All the statesmen ofour country have so declared, and the declaration will soon bccomo apparent to the dullest.— He who delays peace for one moment for the purpose of crushing out the institu tion inherited from the founders of our country, is a disunionists. He who would desire to destroy the rights of the States, is a disunionists. He rejects the bond of Union, which is the Constitution, and prefers war and anarchy to a rein stallment of the Union. Sumner and Wilson and Butler and their followers arc disunionists, and if their doctrines be indorsed the Union will be broken into fragments. ■ - « ► —- Ricn Quartz.— We were shown, on Thurs day, some immensely rich specimens of gold hearing quartz, taken from the Atlantic lode, near this city, by Mr. Ort one of the owners.— The vein is forty inches thick, and the speci mens were taken from it at the depth of fifty seven feet. It promises to be one of the rich est lodes in the State. Street Crossinos.—The rain that has fallen this week has already made our streets quite muddy, and shows the necessity of having good crossings. Some of them arc in a shabby condition and need repairing, and now is the lime to do it. On Main street,’ especially, should they be attended to before the rainy •easoa begins. Not tor tht Uxion.—No excuse is left any intelligent mind lor now supposing that the Administration is prosecuting this war to restore the Union or maintain tlie Constitution. If it ever had such an intention it has given it up. The Aboli tion pressure forced the President to back out. The leading and potential or gans of the Republican party, who con trol its policy and guide its actions and distribute and enjoy its patronage, have recently, without an exception, proclaim ed in distinct tones that the seceded States are not to be admitted into the Union until the destruction of slavery.— It is now avowedly, what it has always been designedly and practically, a war for | the freedom of the slaves and not for the | restoration of the Union, and the man I who favors its prosecution, know ing the fact, with whatever excuse lie may give for his conduct, is an Abolitionist and doing the work of an Abolitionist. * ►— — Despotic Poweh and Constitutional Libektv. —In his correspondence with his Government at home, Lord Lyons, the Diitish Minister at Washington, says that Mr. Seward, then ns now the Secretary of State, said to him : “Mv Lord, I can touch a bell on mv right hand and order the arrest of a citi zen in Ohio. I ean touch the hell again and order the imprisonment of a citizen in New York , and no power on earth, but that etf itre President.' can release them. Can the Queen of England in her dominions do as much i” No. Englishmen reverence the Con stitution of their Country, and loyal as they are to their Queen, they would not allow her to violate it, knowing that such violation would he destructive oftluir liberties. Lord Chatham, o( England, raid : The poorest man in his cottage may hid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail; ils roof may shake ; the wind inaj blow through it; the storm may enter ; the rains may enter; hut the King of England cannot enter. All his power dares not cross the threshold of that ruined tenement.” Selling his Sox.—The Keene (New Hampshire) Republican,of the 4th of Oct, says : “ Those who went up to Lebanon one day last week, for examination, were shocked to sec a white man there, follow ed by his young son, whom he was en deavoring to sell at the higest price as a substitute. The man at last, after much bantering, sold his hoy for 8450, and pocketed the greenbacks with the coolest satisfaction, while the boy dejectedly : passed into the Provo's otliee to report for service. To many present this opera tion was shocking ;■ though it was not so, probably, to the philanthropists. Noth ing but the sale of a negro excites their pity. Is this a sample of the “superior civilization ” New England desires to in ! troduce into the S nth. »—♦♦»■ Cotton.— Every Abolition theory is certain to explode, and w ith more or less damage. A recent conceit was the pro duction of cotton in high latitudes, and without negro labor. Some experiments in the West last year were sai 1 to prom ise success, and this year the farmers went into the business more extensively. One morning they waked up to find their crop and hopes destroyed by frost. Tin- Chicago Tribune, an Abolition paper, says the frost was rtkther early to be sure, but very lucky for “ it saves the people from the temptation to make similar ex perriments in the future. A very favor blc season would have lured them into most expensive enterprises, in future years, which could not be otherwise than disastrous. It is supposing that intelli gent men should have encouraged the farmers of Illinois, Missouri and Kansas to attempt cotton planting." Cool, this, i considering the source ! The Tribune encouraged the farmers to plant cotton, and now sneers at them for following its advice Gen. Cass on the Radicai.s.— General Cass, a statesman and Democrat of (be old school, says : “ The Jacohincs and Radicals, who are the leading spirits of the party in power, seeni quite as intent on destroying our civil right as in wltip ing the rebels into subjection.” Is not every word of the above true ? - o ♦ m m »■ ■ ■ — Plain Talk.— The New York Tribune is pitching into the Administration for suppressing the truth about disasters. It says the account of the battle of Chicka inauga was so adroitly manipulated by the Government censors, that many be lieved that Bragg bad been whipped. It also intimates that the Sabine Pass expe dition was only- somebody’s cotton scheme, and adds ; “ Wo have lost fourteen guns, three ships and many lives, have lost time, which is of incalculable value, have lost the use of the troops, which were urgently wanted elsewhere ; and we have not even the cotton to balance the account." Tuanksgiving Dav — Guv. Stanford has ap pointed Thursday, November 26th, as a dav of thanksgiving, lor the great benefits we hare reccivek at the hands of God. We hope to see it better observed in this city than it has been heretofore. Of course it will be observed, with all due respect, by the loyal, us both the Pres ident and the Governor have proclaimed the same day as a day of thanksgiving. Fearful Havoc. —In May 1801, the 1st Minnesota Regiment entered the service with its full complement of a thousand men. After the battle of Bull Run, a re cruiting office was opened in St. Paul to fill up its ranks, nnd recruits continued to be sent on—how many, in the aggregate, a; not stated. We now sec a notice of the fact that a St. Paul paper recently ap peared in mourning for the loss of the Minnesota First; it having gone into a late battle with only 300 men and come out with but one hundred! And this is all that remains of as fine a Regiment as was in the service —of its recruits, as well as its original members 1 This is a sad tale; sad beyond conception is the fearfui truths of war, Few persons (out of Washington) have more justly exposed themselves to the scornful fun of the press, than Mr. Theo dore Tilton, one of the editors of the New York Independent, and an Aholitionst, of course, of the true consistent type. — A few days before it happened to him to he drafted himself, in Brooklyn, N. Y., he made an earnest appeal to all (Persons who might be drawn, to go to the war in person. “ Honor,” said he. '* to the con script, who scorning pitiful evasion.obevs the behests of the law.” Upon finding, however, that by some honest turff of the a.* it proved *>>).« case, be had' this unexpected “honor” thrust upon him, this brave and patriotic Aholitionst sedulously looked about him for a substi tute, offered one who was rejected, and finally secured another who passed mus ter.—Courier. When the great American aloe, belong ing to Mr. Van Rensselaer, of Albany, having been in New,York on exhibition, was on its way up the river under the care of the gavduev or keeper, a gentle man, struck with the beauty of the plant, made many inquires regarding it. In the course of the passage the inquirer re mat ked : •‘This plant belongs to the cactus fam ily, does it not, sir V” “ No, sir ; it belongs to the Van Rens selaer family,” was the reply of the stiaight forward attendant. T(t WEI.. — A gentleman who has repeatedly traveled over the road between this place and Virginia City, this season, informs us tin.* the w hole route is Oiled w ith teams,pack trains and travelers, going to and returning train stl verland. The stages are daily crowded with passengers.
