THE SHASTA COURIER. [Per Cram, Roger? & Co.’s Express.] Begalar Trinity Cerreapeadeuc*. Weaverville. May 19, 1853. Messrs. Editors —Our District Court ad journed yesterday, making a clean sweep of all the business pending in said court. It is but justice to Judge Peters in saying that he has given universal satisfaction to the Bar, and all litigants transacting business in his court. IVe know of no ease in which an appeal will be taken from his decision. By our citizens the Judge is particularly beloved as a citizen —and all respect him for his superior qualities as a man and jurist. He bids fair at uo distant day to rank among the most able men of our State. We regret that Judge Peters has been trans ferred by recent legislation from this county to the counties of Siskiyou, Klamath and Humboldt, comprising the Bih Judicial District, and our own county placed in the Olh District Not withstanding this change and the loss of our friend —Judge Peters —we wish him worlds of success, and God’s benison be with him. He starts for Siskiyou in a few days. We regret to state that on Sunday night an attempt was made to burn our town, some mis creant had fired the rear portion of Mr. J. Har rington’s store, and but for timely discovery, would undoubtedly have swept the whole town. At a democratic meeting held on Sunday, ai the Union Hotel, delegates were appointed to attend the State Convention, to be held at Be nicia, in June, for the nomination of State of ficers.

Telegraphic Pranks. —ln Boston they have a fire-alarm telegraph, which, when connected, sets all the fire-bells ringing at one time. A day or two ago, the wires of the Morse Tele graph from New fork got in contact with tbe tire Telegraph in Boston, and instantly King’s Chapel bells began striking fire at a rapid rate, and the fire apparatus of the district were nil drawn out before the cause'was discovered. Ringing Boston bells in New York city is rather a long bell rope to pull; but is a very striking illustration of magnetism annihilating space. liT Gen. Scott has purchased a handsome house in Twelfth street, near Fifth Avenue, New York, for $26,000, and designs taking up his permanent residence in it. The house is a new one, having been built last full by Charles Pat ridge. Esq. The Whig Young Men’s General Committee have appointed five of their number to wail upon Gen. Scott to ascertain when be can make it convenient to meet the committee. Gold Discoveries in Texas.— The Picayune has received and published late and important intelligence from Texas. The news fully confirms the previous reports received of rich discoveries of gold on the upper Colorado River, and also above Austin. Large amounts had already been collected bv those who bad proceeded to the diggings, and the greatest excitement prevailed all through out Texas. The Bequest to Queen Viciokt. —It was stated some time since, that a man named John Neald, who died in England last year, had left a will bequeathing all his property, worth £250,- 000, to Queen Victoria. The validity ot the will, we notice by late London papers, has been duly confirmed, according to law, without op position. Political Honestt. —Under this head the S. F. Whig utters the following grave and senten tious a|R)thegms; Honesty without ability is a good fool who means well and <h»es ill. because he knows no better. Commend ns to honesty in office, more especially in the highest, but let us have intelli gence to fire the dnll ajid harmless clay. Integ rity without talent is bread without salt, A stu pid official is a god-send to knaves ; he ask noth ing for himself; he suspects no man, and thanks heaven for not much, when he is grateful for an empty conscience. California in Washington. From a very interesting article in the Alla California, under the above head, we clip the following: The great want of knowledge amort" mem bers ol Congress, both of the House untftenate, respecting our Stale, her resources and necessi ties, the laws she needs and the destiny that awaits her, has been astounding to those who have beon in tbe habit of looking upon that body as the concentration of national wisdom. And its sense of justice has been as tardy as its com prehension was dull. For years, nearly every claim of California and her citizens who had bat tled in her acquisition and defence, was looked upon as an attempt to rob the public treasury, and consequently it was opposed, or it was viewed with indifference as coming from a very distant colony, anil was therefore neglected. For thus has it been—California on account of her isolated position was treated more like a Pro- Consulship under Rome, than a sovereign Slate of the Union. ******* It is more than live years since the treaty of peace left California quietly in the possession of the United Slates, but still we look in vain for the lighthouses and buoys that should long since have given warning lothe mariner—in vain seek any means of protection against foreign invasion —in vain enquire for laud offices and other usual mediums of securing certain homes, and that which shall fill them with happy and permanent inhabitants. There are no lautborus in our light houses, no cannon in our forts, no pre-emptions in our lands, for the houses are not built, the forts not erected, tbe lauds not surveyed. Nearly everything has been given grudgingly —grudgingly by Congress, grudgingly by the people, grudgingly by the press. \\ bile Cali fornia has stood between the business men of the other side and bankruptcy, those who were saved from ruin by the steady semi-monthly in pouring of her golden millions have growled at our wants instead of supplying them, and neg lected the very means best calculated to ensure the constant supplies of that gold which is the life-blood of their business and hopes. At the very time when the telegraph from New Orleans announced as on the way from A spin wall to New York only one and a half millions, when two and a half as usual had been expected, and stocks fell a* once in consequence from two to three pet* cent. California, which supplied all this treasure, was looked upon as a beggar be cause she asked a few thousand dollars, neces sary to develop the sources aud supplies of iht precious metal. But a brighjfr day has dawned upon us. a new dynasty has arisen, and hope comes with its advent. It gives promise of better things for Calitornia, a better knowledge of her condition, a better estimate of her future history and im portance, more energy in the supervision of her interests, a better selection of agents. All this is a matter of hope and expectation. Certain it is, that we cannot be more essentially neglected and abused than we have been during the past four years. Congress and the Cabinet will work together, being of one political faith. And some little appreciation of the vast destiny and import ance of this western slope having at length found way into those bodies, we have reason to con gratulate ourselves upon the first rays of light from Washington. Australian News. The following extracts from the correspon dence of the Times 4* Transcript, dated Sydney, Feb. 11, 1853, will give our readers a very cor rect idea of matters in Australia ns they really exist; and will be the means, we hope, of de terring other Californians from leaving their own soil and seeking a home in British domin ions : “ The ship Pactolus arrived in Sydney harbor cn the Ist of November, or about that lime—l have nearly forgotten ; 1 wish she had nevercome here at all. It is the worst place I ever was in; I am going to get out of it as soou as 1 can. “ The tax is very heavy on the miner— for British subjects. Tbe tax is double on for eigners. It has been increased since 1 arrived; sls per month on the Americans. This is lay ing it on very thick. Pay it you must, or go to work on the roads alongside of criminals. “Police are stationed everywhere in the mines, both horse and foot. So, if you wish to know what oppression is. just come over to this country. Negro slavery is nothing compared’ with tlie miserable despotism of this country. “ The Americans are getting very strong in numbers in this to be redeemed country. They have been very quiet and orderly, not meddling in any of their meetings. One of tbe newspapers remarked a few days ago, ‘ that uo Californian had been arrested for any crime.’ Now that is something worthy of remark in such an accursed country as this. A great many people have a grudge against the Americans, or the Vigilance Committee, for doing the people of this Colony so great a service a few months ago, by hanging them for burning and robbing the inhabitants of California. “ I have not done anything since I came here, scarcely made my board, and intend to leave ns soon as I can. Wages arc not so good as in Cali fornia. “ The miners arc raising on the Turon River in opposition to the tax. They (the Governor General and Council,) are sending the red coats to the diggings to put the miners down.” Fatal Mistake. —Yesterday, just after mid night, an occurrence happened which threw a gloom over the many friends of Mr. G. Goetche. the wholesale tobacconist, whose store was on Washington street just below Montgomery. Several days since he stated to his intimate friend. Dr. Pissett, that he fell unwell, describ ing the symptoms. The Doctor took out his note book, hastily scratched off a prescription and handed it to him. The latter sent it on Mon day evening to the well-known apothecary store of Messrs. Bathe & Grotjan, where it was dis pensed by Mr. V. Chevallter. On Monday, about midnight, as Mr. Goetche was retiring, lie filled a wine glass (according to the direction) with the mixture, and drank it off. It proved to be prussic acid, and he fell and died almost imme diately’.— Times Sr Transcript. The Grand Lodge of ilie 1. U. of O. F. of California, has been instituted in this city, by the installation of the following gentlemen as officers;—Samuel H. Packer, M. VV. Grand Mas ter; J. F. Morse, R. IV, D. Grand Master; T.

ARRIVAL. OF Till: COLLVIBI'S. Fifteen Daft Later from the Atlantic. Death of Vice-President King. We are indebted to Adams Sc Co’s Express for a copy of the San Francisco Herald of the 21st, from which we take the following sum mary of news brought by the steamer ColumLva : The United States Senate adjourned sine die on the 11th April. Its last act was the confirma tion of James Buchuuuau as Minister to Eng land. Humors of a change in the Cabinet were pre valent. Marcy was reported to h ive withdrawn and Cushing to take his place, but it was not confirmed. The Connecticut election has reunited in n Democratic victory ; 126 to 75 in the House ; 16 to 5 in the Senate. The stone contributed by Switzerland to the Washington Monument was received April 5. A great fire occurred at Charleston, S. C., on 4th April, destroying 20 houses—loss $35,000. Among the latest confirmations by the Senate are—Ex-Senator Downs, Collector at New Or leans; G. G. Davenport, Chiel Justice of New York; Kerby Benedict, Associate do.; Judge Greene C. Bronson, Collector at New York, vice D. S. Dickinson, declined ; George W. Fletcher, Consul at Chagres. In the 11 hode Island electiou, the Democrats have made a clean sweep. The second trial of the murderer Spring, at Philadelphia, has resulted iu a verdict of guilty. The Hungarians among the Cuban prisoners have been pardoned by the Queen ol Spain, ui d will soon leave Gibrulter for New York. The Washington Union announces by authori ty that the Government has not countermanded the Japan Expedition. The Vermont is with drawn. The Philadelphia Mint has stopped the coin age of three cent pieces. Father Guvuizzi is still lecturing in New York to immense audiences. A great'meeting iu behalf of Free Schools was held at Baltimore, April 11. Ten thousand per sons were present. Senator Soule has been roufiimed ns Minister to Spain, and has accordingly resigned his seat iu the Senate. Mr. Slidell declines the Central America Mis sion, aml has departed for Louisiana, where he has become a candidate for the Seualorship left vacant by the resignation of Soule.

The brig Sea Bird, from Arichat for Boston, during a snow storm, on the 10. h April, struck on a rock off Great Dover, and went to pieces. The captain, mate and two seamen perished. The remainder of the crew were washed ashore on a part of the deck. The boiler in Phelps Sc Jordan’s Rolling Mill at Covington, exploded on ihe sth ult., and de stroyed Hie building. Eight persons were dan gerously wounded, and u great many were in jured, as about 200 persons were working at and around the building. *1 lie boiler was carried 200 feel and fell into the Licking river. The explosion is attributed to the neglect of the en gineer. The nomination of O. C. Pratt for Chief Justice of Oregon, was strenuously opposed in speeches by Senators Shields, Douglas and Atchison, and supported by Senator Dodge, of lowa. Repre sentations unloi lunate to tlie nominee’s charac ter were made. The opposition prevailed, and the nomination was laid on the table, uml after wards withdrawn. Two Associate Judges in Oregon were con firmed. Death of ViCE-PnEsfnE.vT King. —A tele graphic despatch was received at New York from Charleston, S.

Romance. —For the past four or five months the patrons or frequenters of that well known establishment, the Bee Hive, on J street, could not have tailed to notice a blight and interest ing lad of some 14 or 15 years of age, who has been employed as a lender at the (able and counter. His polite and quiet manner had made him a great favorite On Sunday morning he went to the house ol a German family living near by, and informed the lady ot tbe house, with tears in his eyes, that he was not a boy but a girl. The lady immediately took the child with her to a millinery establishment and procured a dress suitable to her sex. Her story is, >hat she came from Germany to New York with her brothers, and while living there with them they used her so ill she was induced to leave them, and having desired income to California, she concluded that that the only projier way forher to travel so great a distance would be iu male attire She did so, and has continued in it to the present lime. She has only been in the country about five months. She is now iu the hands of some very kind friends, who will do all they can for her.— Californian. fc# - The Fit boys in (he Cincinnati Theatre, by w;iy of democratically burlesquing the use of lorgnettes in the dress circle, have adopted the use of two mineral water bottles, tied together with a string, with which they scan the house in the most grave and interesting manner.
