Discii-sioii on the Mclllcr nil I—Speech of Senator K. T. Npragne. Quite an exciting debate, says the Democratic State Journal, occurred in the 7th inst., the sub ject under discussion being Mr. Grewell’s “Set tler Bill.'’ Amendments offered by Mr. Crabb and Mr. Ralston embody the principle which gave rise to the discussion. Mr. Crabb's amend ment is us follows: “ When the plaintiff upon trial establishes a title or right of possession to the premises in suit, he shall be entitled to a reasonable com pensation for the use of the land from the day and date of settlement thereon by the defend ant. The compensation allowed by the Court or the Jury, as the case may be, slmjl be deduct ed from the value of the improvements ascer tained as hereinafter provided.” Mr. Ralston suggested that this should be so amended as to read “that the plaintiff after proving title, Ac., &c., might secure damages from the time when the defendant or those un der whom he claims had legal notice of the plaintiff’s claim.” After some discussion be tween Messrs. R. and C., the latter gentleman accepted this amendment. Many speeches were made, almost every Sena tor present, says the Journal , seeming desirous of defining Ins position on the question. We are indebted to the legislative reporter of that paper for the following remarks of Senator Sprague on the question of the adoption of the amendment: Mr. President —T am somewhat surprised at the amendment proposed hv the Senator from Sail Joacpiiu, or that portion of it which requires tlie occupying claimant to pay to the parly by whose superior title he is ejected, rent for the lands from the day of his settlement thereon. 1 believe this amendment, if adopted, would most effectually destroy the object of the bill, so far us protection of the equitable claims of the oc cupant are concerned. II I understand the ob ject of the bill it contemplates affording to a parly who hail in good faith settled upon the lands, made lasting and valuable improvements thereon, believing the same to be government lands, without notice actual or constructive, of any adverse claim or tills*, the means of obtain ing some compensation for tbo labor and ex pense of making such improvements as enhance the value of the lauds, and of which the newly discovered owner in fee is about to reap the benefit. By this amendment the occupying claimant would be forced into the position of a tenant paying rent from year to year, not only for use of wild and unimproved lands, but for the use of the identical structures and improve ments which he himself had created. Thus you compel the occupying claimant to pay for the product of his own labor, because he has been so unfortunate through ignorance or mistake as to bestow it upon lands, the fee of which turns out to be in a private party, instead of his gov ernment. This. sir. would destroy the protection which 1 think is due, and should be extended to such parties as can legitimately be brought within the provisions of this bill. I am willing the occupying claimant should be charged fur the use of the laud us it was at the time of his settlement thereon for the entire term of his occupancy; or I am willing that he should be charged with rent from the time be ) received actual notice, or hau knowledge of an adverse title, at the rate of a fair valuation of the rents and profits of the premises as they w< re at the time he received such notice, and that tin* amount of rents and profits thus estimated should he deducted from the value of the lasting im provements. All 1 desire is that simple, even-handed jus tice he dealt out to the mistaken occupant, and the successful claimant in fee, and if I under stand the friends of this bill, it is ail they desire to accomplish by it. There lias long existed in many* of the old States, what is termed an “ Occupying Claimant Law,” framed for the precise object contem plated by this bill, with similar provisions to meet similar circumstances, and in all of these laws with which I am acquainted, the success ful claimant is only entitled to recover rents and piofils from the date of the service of his writ of ejectment. But it may he said that the occu pying claimant is required to establish a con nected record title before be can claim the ben efit of the law in those States, and that this bill seeks to give a [tarty the value of his improve ments made upon lauds, without even the color of title. To this I would reply, the peculiar circumstances of our country ; the total absence of a valid record title to a foot of land w itliin the limits of our State, and from present prospects years may yet elapse before any such titles to lands in our State will exist. The acquisition of this territory from Mexico vested the absolute title to all the lands within its limits in the Government of the United Slates subject to the conditions of the treaty which guarantied to Mexican citizens their right of properly. These citizens bold their lands under grants from the Governments of Mexico or Spain —some genuine, some fraudulent, some imperfect, and nil indefinite and uncertain as to limits and location. Ail have yet to obtain the sanction of and patent from the Government of tin* United States, with definite boundaries and limits, before we can distinguish accurately the Government lands from the lands of private par ties. I hold then. sir. that since the acquisition of this territory, to the present time, the legitimate presumption is that all the lands within the lim its of our State are Government lands. During the jiast four years this State has been settled with unparalleled rapidity, by industrious and enterprising American citizens, who have sought a home here with their families, without the possibility of obtaining even yet a reliable, valid title to an acre of laud. Many have occupied, settled upon and improv ed the wild and vacant lands, honestly believ ing the same to be Government lands, without notice absolute or constructive, of the existence of adverse claims or private grants of the same lands, and indulging the fond hope that the poli cv heretofore pursued by our government would ere long enable them to secure the title to their farms, with their improvements at a uominal price. They have developed the agri cultural resources ol our Male, and contribute more to its substantial wealth and prosperity than any other class of our citizens. This is the only class of claimants which the bill under consideration is designed to protect. Should they be dispossessed of the lauds which their labor has subdued, cultivated and improv ed, and the proceeds of their toil and fruits of 1 their industry, obtained under such circumstau cos. be appropriated for tlie benefit of a party wno ImppeMß to succeed in perfecting an incho "'e “' c ‘*icnu and Spanish grant, without com pensation for their improvements, to the extent , 'be* enhanced value oftiie land, resulting from these improvements 1 J answer no! Every principle of equity and justice forbids it. The circumstances under which our State has been and is being settled, demands such protection as is demanded in this bill. The welfare- and piospei ity of our State demand it—tec security, peace and good order of society demand it. A just and rational government will protect her citizens in the possession ot their property, and in the enjoyment of the fruits of meritorious and honest industry. I do not stand here the advocate of that class of unscrupulous adventurers described by the gentb man from Solano, who have wantonly seized upon and occupy lands, with a full know ledge of existing grants, or adverse claims to the same lands. Nor do I intend the prejudices they have excited and I lie opprobrium which at taches to their acts, shall blind me to the just and equitable chi inis of those who settle upon and improve wild and unoccupied lands in good taiih, prior to any knowledge or notice of any existing private glint or adverse claim. I have heard instances when parlies holding these in choate Mexican grants, have stood by and al lowed others to settle upon and improve lands covered by these grants, believing the same to he public lands, neglecting and refusing to notify the settler of his mistake, with the avowed ob ject of eventually enforcing his title, dispossess ing the settler, and appropriating the fruits of his labor. Such instances are known to exist, and there may have been many. Vet the stern rigor of the law would enforce the demand of the party holding the title in fee, and aid him in this infamous appropriation of the fruits of his neighbor's honest industry. *• No one is permit ted to take advantage of his own wrong,” is a very old legal maxim, and 1 desire to see it en forced and applied to the occupying claimant, as well as to the owner in fee of the lands in this State. [Ber Cram, Rogers & Co’s Express.] Regular Vrcka Con capo.idoncc. Yeka City, May 9, 18)3. Messrs. Editors, —Since my last dispute'll, vve have had “ orfal duius” in this town. On the evening of the sth, n party of thirty-six Chi namen arrived, carrying their traps themselves as usual, and this terrible advent caused a mo.si tremendous excitement amongst six men and one boy (from I’ike County) of our mining com munity. A meeting was called forthwith for the purpose of requesting them to leave: bn’ some of our citizens, who were possessed of that rather scarce article, common sense, sug gested that a general meeting should he called, in order to test the feelings of the whole community on the question. Accordingly, on Friday even ing. a very large proportion of our mining and city population met at the Yreka Hotel, where the meeting was organized by choosing Mr. Corant as Chairman, and Mr. Geo. C. Furber as Secretary. Lund calls were made for Mr. Good all, (one of our Justices of the I’eace) but as In was not at that time present, Mr. Hathaway ad dressed the assemblage,in favor of allowing any and all industrious and peaceful persons to reside and work in our mines, so long as they shall comp’y with our laws. Mr. Worden followed in opposition to foreigners of the Celestial spe cies, hut made rather a lame argument. Judge Robinson was then vociferously called for. and be responded in a manner which did him infinite credit, and was sufficiently successful in his reasoning to convince any person whom reason ing would convince, that the proper and just course was, to allow the Chinamen to remain. He also offered a series of resolutions to that ef fect, which gave rise to a dehate, and to a speci men of oratory " seldom equalled and never ex celled,” by the young gentleman from Five County before mentioned. 1 never before so regretted my ignorance ol Stenography as upon this occasion, for had I been able to have sent you this speech, both your Courier and your cor respondent would have been immortalized. However, the speaker assured us that ** lie was up to knees in mud daily—made an adobe every day —could not tell if bis ancestors came from the land where the glorious Rhine rolls its tipsy waves to meet the vast ocean,” etc., but alas ! in spite of this brilliant effort, when the vote was taken, there were but six who voted in op position to the resolutions. The opponents of the Celestials will bold another meeting to-mor row, (Sunday,) but I apprehend the Chinamen will not he meddled with. You have noticed the marriage of P. Murray, Esq., J. F., to Miss Stone, and I assure you that this was one of the most agreeable affairs which has yet taken place in Yreka, The invitations were very extensive, consequently the galaxy of beautiful and accomplished ladies, who it is well known, always take great interest in matters of this kind, were armed with all their charms and graces, causing the hearts of many of our unfor tunate Benedicts to respond most fervently to that passage of scripture, reading, “ go thou and do likewise.” ■ Business continues extremely dull, ns no one here purchases any thing but what he really needs. The miners have learned wisdom by ex perience, and are as economical in expenditure as are any of the people of the older States. Gambling, too, is almost entirely eradicated, there being lint one table in the place, and this is not in operation hut one or two nights in the week. This shows the utter uselessness of le gislating upon the subject, for public opinion will always accomplish what laws < annot. We are about to have a school established here and the auspices for it are very favorable. Al though the subscription paper was presented but a little more than one day, a sufficient sum was obtained to ensure success. This also speaks well for the intelligence of onr citizens. F. S.—Although a meeting was appointed, as I before wrote, to oppose the Chinese, not one attended it, and Cekstiality is entirely in the as cendant. Yours, R. DE C. C^ 5 We see bv the Columbia Gazette of Sat urdav that an Indian war, between different tribes, is brewing in Tuolumne. The cause as signed is the killing of an Indian who prophe cied against them. After negotiating for several days, gays the Gazette, without an amicable set tlement of the difficulty, the two tribes resolved to settle the affair by a pitched battle, on Table Mountain, on Thursday last. It was a mournful and melancholy sight to hearthe wailings of the women and children as they passed m their hid ing places in the mountains, previous to the con templated battle. The battle, we presume, did not lake place, as the day was an unusually rainy and disagreeable one, and we saw a number of warriors on that day in Columbia. If a compro mise is not made, or if the legal authorities do inteifere, a battle will inevitably take place, as considerable preparation —sucli as jioinling ar rows and whetting knives —have been already made, and both parties are resolved on fighting.

Your Reporter, B. 8. letter icu.u .'sail ii»uc> Mr. Biirtly arrived at Sacramento on Wed nesday, bringing ilie Great Salt Lake Mnil, with dates from Deseret to the 15th April. We are indebted in the State Journal and Californian tor the following summary of news: Mr. Bartly and party bad rather a hard limo »t it from bad roads, high waters and want of provisions—the party at one lime being obliged to live on “ roast dog,” which they pronounced superior to venison, especially when venison is not to be had. The water in the Humboldt River is very high, and for live days after leav ing that river the party had to swim every cre< k on their trail. Joseph Davis is building a bridge over the Humboldt at the upper crossing. On the 2(ith nit., 110 miles up the Humboldt, met Joseph Barnard with the mails for Salt Lake. Met but lew Indians, and found tin tax very friendly. Bussed the train with the Mormon Church stock, containing over 800 head ol cattle—Davis & Helm's train (from Kentucky) 700 head— Maupin’s train with over 1400 sheep, and several other smaller trains. At Carson Valley the miners are doing very well. Provisions were rather high, but ere tins everything is in abundance, as several pack trains were passed near the valh y. From Mr. Burtly we learn that the season at the Lake was very backward, and at the time he left the farmers had just commenced putting in wheat. Flour was somewhat scan e, ana worth $G per hundred. Holliday &, Warner'* great train was to leave for California on the ISth nil., with 1500 head of cattle and 30 largo wagons loaded with flour. On the 6ih April the Annual Church Confer ence was held, and an immense concourse of Mormons from every part of the Valley were present. The address of Brigham Young at the opening is said to have been denunciatory of Americans (whom lie represented to the fair sex as being ‘‘gay deceivers,”) and of the “ Gladdenites,” a new sect who differ from the other Mormons only in disbelief of the spiritual wife system. They are on the increase, and Brigham \oung is much afraid of their in fluence. The emigration to California Las been check ed by Brigham Young, who has forbidden any Mormon to leave the Territory without a pass port, and then refuses to sign any. The police regulations are more stringently enforced than formerly, and Mjtmons as well u* Gentiles are daily to be seen working in the chain gang. A few days before the mail left, two Ameri cans stole a number of cattle and started lor Cal ifornia by the Southern route. A party sent in pursuit was intercepted by the celebrated Utah Chief Walker, who told the men that the Ameri cans were good men and his friends—had given him guns, powder and lead, and he would not see them hurt. The Mormons returned to the city on the sth of April, when measures wera taken to raise a company and chastise Walker for his insolence. The Deseret Neirs contains but little news — its columns being chiefly filled with Church mat ters. By reference to its advertisements we learn that pretty much everything required in that community is produced at home —nails, chairs, brushes, brooms, and all manner of “ Yankee Notions” are manufactured.
