Dbats or an Old and Eatinadlb Citizen.—
Aaother link in the great chain of life Huh been
steered. Another fcaernua ofum he* been
tailed from titne toetemitr. An"ther friend
hat “taken hit chamber in the eilent hall* of
death.” Another happy home has been made
desolate. On Saturday morning Uet a fid«in
Cxtvvb. of his manhood,
before time’s “effacing Angers” had mjpreseed
the seal of decay upon his features, **as sum
moned hence by Death, the pale messenger.—
But a fen* days before, he apparently enjoyed
good health, and the suddenness of his death
startled and griered his friends >»nd saddened
our community. He was highly eateemedand
his death was generally deplored. He aaa
blessed with many estimable qualities, promi
nent among which were serene temper, opeo
hauded charity and urbanity of manner. He
bad many friends snd bnt few enemies; te the
former be was devoted, to the latter forgiving.
He was a worthy citisen, an upright officer, a
good neighbor eod a fond and indulgent father
and husband. He was an old resident of our
county, held several public offices, and de
ducted them efficiently and with clean hands
The death of such a man, so useful, so gentle
and so generous, shrouded our city in mourn
ing snd forced tears “from eyes unused to
weep.” On the public buildings and on the
Plaza flags wers displayed at hulf mast in honor
of the dead. On Suuday afternoon his body
was followed to tbs grave by the Masonic Fra
ternity, of which order he was an honored
member, by the Fire Department, by the mili
tary, and a l.rgt concourse of sympathising
friends. His funeral was the largest we ever
witnessed in Placerville. “ Eternal verdure to
the acacia above thy grave, departed ft tend uud
brother!”
Artemts Ward, the splendid “goaker” and
inimitable Iceturer, has been here, lectured and
has gone. He “spoke Ida piece” to h large
nod intelligent audience, and pleased moat —
disappointed but a few. lie is an original, and
may have “steamb«>«ted” some of hi* hearer*,
those with “ large expectation*,” w ho were so
licitous to lsnrn something of the character and
fate of the “Babes in the Wood,” but even his
victims must admit it w as cleverly done. He
left tbs “Babes” (not those in the wood) in a
taotiliiing mood, undecided whether to entile
or growl. His lecture is indescribable, and
must be “beard to be appreciated.”
Robbery.—A Johntown correspondent, wri
ting under date of ihe Both of November, say s;
“ On Friday morning last, as Mr. T. A. Wen.
tine wan driving a team on the road between
Johntown and Uniuntown, lie was stopped b>
n highwayman who demanded his money, »t
the same time presenting a Colt’s revolver. —
Mr. Valentine, being unarmed, handed over
bia money, amounting to twelve dollars, say mg
be would much rather part with his no ney
than bis scalp. The robber politely assured
him that he did not intend to hurt him. He
Stated to Mr. Yah mine that he was strapp'd
and had resorted to robbing to make a raise.—
He returned Valentine a d *IUr to pay t«*il
across the Uniontuwn bridge and a hit in buy
s drink, runurking that he never tonics biis,
anyhow."

The various fashion bonks, received by eve
ry steamer, we perceive, are tilled with pat
terns of the most elegant garments, upon all of
wbicb we find the trimming specified ns Ma
chine Embroidery slid Braiding; for cloaks
mantles, dresses, scarfs, bonnets, etc., etc.’
no other style nf trimming is so popular in
Europe or America. Of all sewing machines
before the public, but one possesses the capa
city for executing both these brunches of orna
mental tewing—the “ Grover & linker"—
which can be applied not only to the general
•ewing necessary in a family, but to embroid

tbe present fashion.

cigars, tobacco, etc. llis stuck of blank books
and stationery is large and well selected, und,
at his low prices, will command a ready sale.—
Among bis new books we notice The First
Year of the Wur," by Pollock, and " The Life
of Stonewall Jacksno," by Daniels. We have
to thank him for a copy of the fainter, which,
from a cursory examination, appears to be a
bold and well written work, und severely- crit

praised at tbe expense of General ].ce. and the

A Lime Apology.
The Sacramento Ike isdissatisfied with
our comments upon •• War Democrats,"
ami rashly conn s to their rescue. Its de
fense of them and apology for their aban
donment of principle are anything hut
creditable to tluir judgment, honesty t.r
patriotism. Says the Bee, in reply to our
remarks of last week :
“ It is no evidence of manhood or vir
tue, or wisdom to ling a dogma for the
dogma's sake ; to cling to a dead entesss
—to mouth and mumble an empty name.
* * * Those Democrats who
became ‘ War Democrats.’ and then ‘ Ab
olitionists,’ had tin ir eyes and ear open.
Tiny watched the world moving — they
could not stop it if they would— sud
wisely com lud d to move with it.”
Here’s a rich confession! 7 nnonce
your principles, although you know tfirin
to he correct anti just and good, if tha
world disapprove* them, in rtf ct, says
the Bee, ami embrace those that are pop
ular, how ever dangerous and disreputable
they net y be!* “The win Id,” to use the
Bee’s phiase,at first rejected the doettinew
of the Saviour of mankind ami pevsecottd
his disciple , but they did not r. nounce
them in order W> “ move with it.” They
adhered to them, although they wore in a
hnpeteas minority, and had awtking to
hope frivw those m authwity for adhering
ta them, but abuse and persecution. If
the editor of the Bee had lived i« those
days and entertained the Mate sentiment*
he doea now, he w ould have joined is thw
popular cry of “ crucify him ”!
At the breaking owt of the French
Revolution tre French people male a
mockery of religion avid wwrshippcd w h it
they called Reason. It was omrngcmis,
so the good men of Fianoe felt and said,
hut “they could not stop it,”anil,accord
ing to the Bee’s logic, they would have
acted “ wisely” had they “concluded to
move with it."
But a few years a so Abolitionism was
unpopular, and good men esteemed it a«
insult to he called an A'ndniwnist. Sena
tor Conncss pr ihson-d to hate Abolition
ists a* cordially ami demurm-ed them as
fiercely as any Democrat in California. —
II* said their “ doelrii.es wore ihisg rou
and iluvnnahlr." They are the s»m* now
as they wore then. Then :h« Abolition
ista were without powirm patronage —
sow they have both at their disposal ; amt
Senator Con n»'S, from the U~.t of »i
tires, of course, has embraced their “dan
giroiis nt.d ilamtiabU ductiines.” lie
“watched the world moving, and wisely
concluded to move with it.”
“ It is no evident-* of manhood or vir
tue, or wisdom" to ding to unpopular
principles, in the estimation of the Bee,
i ven if thev w.-vc promulgated by the
purest patriots and received the support id
the wisest statesmen of our country. We
think different Iy. The principle* of ih>-
I) mocralic party have stool the test ol
time. Had the party that advorated them
succeeded in the hist Presidential election,
out country to dar would he prosperous
and happy. History h-ra vindicated evprv
p»siii"ii and justified tvet y important act
"f that party finm the 01 gatiir. Hi m of the
(iovernmeut dow n to the present time.—
It h.-,s I ceii truly s*id that “discreet men
who anticipate a future, no I do not nlj ct
to the etijoymenl of self respect in time
to c uni-, slimil I ruminate a little mi this
important truth. Without clsimiog ab
solute infallibility, the Deniucraey have a
light tn dwell with sati-.faction an 1 piide
upon the la-t that their sui'Cvss has been
uniformly the prosperity and progress of
tlie country and tin- inerrased happiness
ol the|nnple; that tin ir cardinal piinci
ple* a.-iva pa-seo into laws; that their
themies of wdf-gnvern no-nt have heroine
the well settle I c* victions of anti-in-m
ate'iists all Itw warld nvov. They can
therefore hear reproach with comparative
indifference.” They know that their
principles po-sess a vitality which can
never he weakened cither by calumny or
ill feat. They know that if the people
were “ fetterless and free,” they would
indorse them t ■ tnorro-.v. They can safe
ly rely on the sober second thought ol the
pen dr*. Their ranks are not made up of
political adventurers and mendicants,who
“watch the moving of the world’’ and
“move with it,” without regard to prin
ciple or honor. In the latter class the
Bee, in its lame apology, has placed the
" War Democrats.”
Political Paiisoss. — Wo commend to
our political parsons the following senti
ment uttered by Father BylcS, the first
pastor of the Park Street Uiuiia.-lt, Boston.
What a rebuke it is to preachers of the
Star King order : " I have thrown up lour
breast works, behind which I have en
trenched myself, neither of which can be
forced. In the first place, I do not un
derstand politics; in the second place, you
all do, every man and mother's son of
you ; in the third place, you have politics
all the week, pray let one day in seven be
devoted to religion ; in the fourth place, I
am engaged in a work of infinitely more
importance; give me any subject to preach
of more consequence than the truth I
bring yon, and I will preach on it next
Sabbath.”
Nr.nno Fqi AUTV. — It must he apparent
to the dullest that it is the policy of the
Administration party to raise the negro
to an equality with the while man. Bv
giving tlie negro the elective franchise,
the leaders of the party in power believe
they can perpetuate their party ascend
ancy . The lute Massachusetts State Con
vention passed the following resolution:
“ Resolved, That the policy of employ
ing colored soldiers should he enlarged
and liberalized, bv putting such soldiers
on a perfect equality with whites."

Lying Admitted.— Tin* Springfield
(Mas-.) Republican,a (air anil ableRcpub
lican organ, ailmiis that the Administra
tion don't dual lairly with the press anil
the people in the matter of news. Thus,
in regard to the battle ol Chi knmauga, it
never admitted n serious disaster unit*
such an event was necessary to excuse
the dtstnis-ai of Rosoncrans. It says —
“Secretary Stanton has from the begin
ning made it a leading aim to bamboozle
rf/e people.” He has, and has succeeded,
and the more he humbugs them the bet
ter satisfied they appear to be. The Ad
•ministrali in is perpetuating itself bv
baud ami falsehood. If the people were
permitted to know the Hath in regard
to our military aid financial condition,
they would institute some reform »|>e«d
ily, and some ol the leaders of the patty
nn power, instead ol occupying high po
sition» would ha spending their time in
Slate pritemn. Ft is necessary, for thi
stle uos of the perly, to cover up ami con
ceal the rascality of ila leatlers, and for

A Disinion Paktv. — Wendell Phi lips,
the (.ioneer Republican, in one of bis
speeches made in l!*Vt, thus extolled the
Hapsiblican party, whose purposes lie
knew :
“ There is merit in the Republican par
ly. It is the first sectional (tarty ev% or
ganiaed in titin country. It is the Ninth
airayed again-4 the South. The Hist
crack in the iceberg is visible. You w ill
l«e*r it go with a crash though the cen
tre.”
Here one of its chiefs admits that the
Republican party is a sectional party —
admdc th»t it was organized to array the
Nin th against the Smith. It has, accord
ing to the prediction of its champion,
gnn» “ with a crash through the center
of the Union.” It was organized to de
stroy the Union and it has succeeded.—
It provok'd and is responsible ft' the
«ar. And it cannot escape the respond
hilitv. Nothing will satisfy its fiendish
spirit hut the subjugation or ixnrmin.v
lion <*f the Southern people. Its leaders
boldly proclaim that the war is carried on
for that purpose. Senator Wilson, the
mouth-piece of the Administration, in his
New Hampshire speech, said :
“ We shall subjugate the rebel States - :
that's (lie word —subjugation.”
Men who support such a party cannot
he li tends of the Union.

cut respondent of the New York Indepen
dent, t» riling b oia Washington, closes
Im« letter vtitli the folio* mg (taragi-aph :
“ I am hopeful. We are to bring this
civil *ar to a close not Itv compittniise.
Compromise, thank (iwl, is impossible. —
It is to come by subjugation nr extermi
nation ol the rebels, and ill iiu other
way.”
” Cninprotnise, thank God, is impossi
ble. Subjugation or extermination.''—
I'hi* is the demoniac put pose ofAboli
tio..istn, says ttse Bridgeport Karine' ; for
it rivers of blood have been poured out
and mil lions of treasure squander'd, and
to day how stands the case ? Are wc
any nearer the consummation of the exter
minating and subjugating process ? —
Without some compromise this war may
he w aged for fifty years. The extermina
tion or subjugation of ten millions of pto.
pie ia an impossibility; and in the at
tempt to conquer them, we have already
sacrificed the dearest and most sacred
rights of American freemen. Most the
war continue longer, before the people
will become aware of the impossibility as
well ns criminality ol this desperate un
dertaking ; of the recklessness of the Ad
ministration, and tlie madness of its vis
ionary schemes ?
A Picri'itK t on CmtisTiAN Men to Look
at. —The Memphis Bulletin thus giaphi
cally sketches the comiiton of Teniios-ce:
“ There is a portion of this State so de
vastated by the civil war as to he prneti
oilly abandoned hy the font of man. The
men are slumbering at Shiloh, Corinth
and Stone River; the servants have gain
ed their freedom ; the women and cliil
rcii have lied to more remote and quiet
precincts. Falling in behind the retiring
footsteps of Immunity come the four-foot
ed hca»ts ami creeping things. The lox
makes his burrow under the ruined dwel
lings where a happy people once dwelt,
flic serpent crawls under the floor of the
church and school house. The squirrel
chatters and builds his nest upon the lo
cust tree in the obi yard, mice noisy wiili
the mirth of chtldruv. The gumds rot*
ting in the cool spring. The purtiidgc
whistles from the ridgepole of the cabin.
The wild bee seeks a Storehouse for his
honey, fearless of detection hy the hu
man eye. All returning to a state of na
ture. What a monument of ravages of
war.”
Position ok the Demockatic Pahtv. — |
The Porismoutli Democrat, in reply to
tlie Concoril Statesman, a violent Aboli
tion organ, kept tip by Government pat
ronage, which accuses Demociats oi a
mere party opposition to Mr. Lincoln's
Administration, makes the follow ing man
ly rejoinder. The Democrat expresses
the views of every true Democrat in the ,
country:
We are sorry that the Statesman per
n'lul!, in looking at our uulioimr i/eari-lv.-
fiom a party standpoint; ami we are es
pecially giieved that it should suppose
that Democrats do the same thing. In
this last particular, we know it is mista
ken. We know that there is not a Demo- 1
ciat in this State who would nut rejoice
unspeakably it Mr. Lincoln w ould restore
the Union te-wim row, or at any other tune
during his Administration. It he will
take measures which promise such a re- '
suit, we will sustain him as ckctifully as
w« would have siiataioed any one of our
own party; and if these measures should
he crowned with success, no men will ex
cel Democrats in the depth ami lervur ol
tlnir rejoicings.
The Democratic party asks nothing of
the Adimnistialion. It lias supplied uian
h<r man to tight its ha tiles, hot has had a
any hunted ahara of ttm cwireol homus
and pf trtis. We have had enough, how
evtr. Toe less of such hereafter, the less
con upturn there will be; lor we cannot
ciHictiru licit a true Democrat will look
f-w honor m- pr hi in the paths to which
Mr. Lincoln would lead him. The Ad
mtot-tratnui compete Un tu stand hy our
selvss ; w> w ill not adopt its policy—we
will lesiat il, at all times and by all lawful
means.
Our position is this: First of all, our
sincera and perpetual prayer is, that Mr.
Lincoln will i set ore to us Union ami
l’eace. AiutisU hopelcaU of thin, We trust
teat (>uu wifi give ua grace and strength
and inpgiity enough hi outlive the cor
ruption, tiie pmaurun and threats of tiii.s
Adiau-tetiaiioii, so that we may bate a
Denos.wiUiv parly which will leetore tLe?
Union when Abe Lincoln i- done with it.
We think a party which lot* outiiMii the
vicissitude* of more than half a century
w ill be found equal to t .is woi k.

Jefffksos AND THE ii.VbF-.V3 fowl’ l s —

Is it ignwarice or interest that ac:uvles

tWe year 176S, whm residing in Palis, as
Minister hotn the Start-, lie wrule to
Madison as follows, the suiject of the
Constitution being then under discussion :
Why siispeml the habeas corpus in in
surrections and rebellions ? I lie parties
who may be arrested may be instantly
charged with a weil-dctimd eiime; ol
course tin-judge wil remand them. * *
* * Kxaiuinc the historv of England.
S.-e how lew of the cases of the suspen

Jefferson's propositions were carried
out, in effect, in the amemlim nts proposed
hy the first Congress, ami are embodied
in Article IV, V ami VI of those amend
ments which were adopted by all the
States. It is utterly impossiblejora stip
porter of the Administration to be a ft>1

Co. repudiate his creed.

Bc.u'tics of Rnprisi.tr.vMSM.—That the
Republican party is led and controlled by
fanatics and knaves, few will have the
hardihood to dispute. Butler, Cameron,
Phillips, Sumner, Wade, I.a.uc and Jenni
son aie ‘‘specimen bricks” of its leaders.
They are all champions of the Adminis
tration-all traitors to the Government,
and are laboring to subvert it. Xo intel
ligent man can come to any other conclu
sion after reading their speeches. Jim
Lane, in a speech at Kansas not long ago,
thus proclaimed the real Republican doe
, trine—a doctrine which they are deter
; mined to inaugurate at the point of the
bayonet, in spite of the objections of the
j people :
The Constitution as it was i- played
cut its technical deiiniti -it i- the re.-ior
ati.m of slavery, ami I am ready to sec
any Kansas man shot dow n who lavors

Xise thousand clerks and army con

hacks, were sent from Washington, at the
public expense, to Pennsylvania to vote
and work for Curtin, the Abolition candi

has defeated the will of the people of
Pennsylvania hy fraud.
Pkovidkd Foit. —Tom Ford, of Harpers
Ferry notoriety, has been given a 81,000
clerkship in Washington. The Adminis
tration lias a happy faculty of rewarding
defeated military officers, and removing
successful ones.
Those Democrats who became “ War

Ges. Beiio’s Oitiiares.—The Warsaw
correspondent »t the London Tiroes says:
As Gen. Berg was riding through the
streets of Warsaw, a bomb shell explod
ed and wounded a part «l his escort. No
attempt was made to ascertain who had
thrown it, but close by there stood the
Zaiuoiski Palace. This consisted of two
buildings, ami covered almost an entire
square. It was occntded by filteen hun
died persons—the most distinguished cit
izens, it would seem, of W arsaw. It was
not aflcdged that the shell was thrown
(tent the building; and had it been so orr
ly those living on one side of the square
could have had any complicity in the.act.
Gen. Berg, however, immediately sent for
a thousand soldiers, who surrounded the
house, entered the different apartments,
confiscated the property of the shop ke< p
era, destroyed the furniture, manacled
the men, numbering about two hundred,
und started them olT to Siberia; and then
—we quote the measured language of the
London Spectator — “ Last of all came a
Saturnalia <>f drunken lust. The women,
daughters of the itif's L >jH Um>-
lies-in Poland, weie subjected, by drunk
en soldiers, to outrages too gross to be
named." To complete the infamy id the
transaction, the next day Gen. Berg ap
proved of all that had iiccti done, and
gave notice that if any ot'tei like attempts
were made he would hold the neighbor
hood responsible. V\ believer, then fore
it i« thought desirable bv miiitaiy author
ities, to appropriate any private p-opeity,
a siiam attempt at assassination w i 1 till n
ish the excuse for its confiscation.

I’sEt) l’r.—The Boston t'ouri-r tatiier
gets Ahraham on the hip when it iuquhes
in speaking of his late " Tl.ai.k-.'iii .j
Proclatiiatiiiti,” w hy it i~ he I. :> seen lit
t • put the whole country substantially
under martial law, by the suspension of
the habeas corpus, if. as he now a"edg-.-s,
order has been maintained, the laws have
been respected and obeyed, and harm my
has prevailed everywhere, except in toe
theater of military conflict.”
Bl.AsiMit.ilY.—The- Uliitaii in ministerial
meeting, w hich met at S;o ing'iend. Mass.,
a few weeks ago, ami which pas., d sii'-h
brutal war resolutions, says the New Y ok
Day Book, sce'Uis lo have been a convoca
tion uf bedlamite's and atheists. They ad
declared their belief in optimism, and one
said, ” I believe there is no such thing as
evil.” Another said, *• I would believe in
the ITiiversc even without the existence
of God." We do not marve l that such
mailmen are Abolitionists. We should
think that those who can believe in the-
Universe w ithout the existence of a G i l,
would find little difficulty in believing
that the- negm is a w nit ■ man.
Pkice IIkdiced —'I ne price of‘Liberty,
says the Amador Dispatch, during the
Seveial Detii'iciatic Adu.i ,istialion w as
"i ternal vigilanec,” but the p'esent Ad
ministration has reduced it to tln-ee nun
ilce el dollars. A fii'inl of tens s;|--> tn t
tin' laason this A liuinisliali in ca.i a.hod
to sell it so cheap, is because it has taken
so many liberties that didn't lied mg to
Feklixu Splendid,— An exchange says;
Andy Jidinsuli is described as feeling
nice —his eye on the I’n sideney and Ids
hand on three salaries: Miiitaiy Gov.
ernor, Senator and General. lie is liber
ally paid for suppo' ling the Administra
tion.
SoLDlElts Oitkaued.—The Louisville
Journal, a war journal of the first water,
says that two Ohio seiluieis, who voted
.for Vallnndigham at lire camp in that city,
were immediately arrested and placed un
der guard. It is absurb to talk about the
soldiers having the privilege of voting
their sentiments. All who vote the Dem
ocratic ticket do so at their peril.

A correspondent of the Paris Siecie, the
government oigan of France, writes from To
nis, Algiers, as follows: “Our college of phi
losopher* at home, may, ami probably do ( ac
complish a great deal for the cause of science,
but the Americans arc the people to turn these
discoveries to practical account. Many of the
modem inventions in use heie are American,
and one Ameiican chemist, l)r. J C. Ayer of
Lowell, supplies much of the medicine used
in this country. His Cherry Pectoral, Pills,
Sarsaparilla and Ague Cure constitute the s»a
yiVt wwtvSV* Vwve, because they are of easy ap
plication, sure.in their results, and the
confidence of the people. While the science of
Medicine is carried to a higher perfection in
our own country than any other, it
strikes a Frenchman us a little singular that un
American physician shoal J furnish the medi
cal skill and remedies for our princij al Prov
ince.’ f
We are happy to inform onr readers that
these superior medicines, which the Emperor’s
principal Province is obliged to xttf fr (, ni
America, may be bad at any’ of our city Drug
