Friend Coirier: Since my lust we have
been twice gladdened at the sight of your ever
welcome sheet, coming as it does, hot from the
press, and delivered here by 10 o’clock p. m. on
the day of publication.
Verily there is nothing like competition to
benefit the public, and these Express lines, com
ing through, we may almost say, by daylight,
confer an immense benefit both upon the public
and individuals. The distance from this point
to Shasta City, if I recollect aright, is one hun
dred and ninety miles, giving an average of ten
miles an hour through, over such mountains as
no other part of the State can afford.
A few days more and I trust, iu company with
some fifteen or twenty old California ’4!) friends
who have for the greater part of the last three
years been together, wandereis over this section
of Oregon and California, to start by way of the
Plains for our long wished for homes on the At
lantic shores. Two parlies leave here, one
about the Ist, and the other the 20th June, join
ing the Yreka trains. Should you wish it 1
would take pleasure in lorwarding you a few
‘•notes by the way,” if anything of interest oc
curs. lam well aware that a diary of the jour
ney is now a twice told tale, and should myself
be sorry to be compelled to wade through the
hyeroglypliical trash of some journal, and can
not but believe you would have much of the same
feeling. Yet the scissors may improve and cull
something from the mass of the worthless, and
to that you shall be welcome.
From Allhouse I have received a note from an
old friend and miner and one of your brother
typos. He writes of several large lumps of
from SIOO to S3OO and a fraction over, iu addi
tion to those mentioned in my last. Miners are
about getting into the bed of toe stream. The
banks, where freed from water, are paying re
markably well,
A copious rain during the last week has kept
the miners at work in our gulches near town,
and night and day behold the golden treasures
bountifully spread forth iu reward of labor.
Both forks of our stream have now bared their
beds to the gold seekers and they are reaping a
rich harvest. On the left hand fork “ old man
Rogers,” as he is commonly called, took out
with four hands, a week since, SIBOO, and his
claim continues to pay. Others near him are
also profiling by steady work and will be well
rewarded for their patience and perseverance
through winter and spring. It would be per
haps unpleasant to themselves to give names.
On the whole all are doing well and making
better than the ordinary average of miners wa
Our townsfolk are indulging in a number of
spirited horse races, but nothing of note has yet
taken place. A race has been agreed upon to
take place on Saturday next for S2OO and anoth

made, you shall receive particulars.

Dignity of Labor.
AT well Ins been said about the “dignify of la
bor.’’ We have all confidence in Californians
that they will ever respect industry. Therefore
we look to 1 lie public for patronage. We must
I have a livelihood. We are not willing to throw
ourselves upon the charity of the people for a
support. We choose to labor for it—we delight
in such labor.
Some of us have chosen the profession of K.
1). S. (i. e. keeper of drinking saloon.) None
will deny that it is a laborious calling. Olielhal
•subjects us to a vast deal ot annoyance; and
with its irregular hours and constant watchings,
is calculated to shorten life. But we shrink not
from tlie toil. We start not back from the anx
ious watchings. We are willing laborers, and
wish not to live upon the charily of the people.
Certain they would not have ns come to want.
To them then we look for patronage, that we
may obtain an honest living by the sweat of our
face. Jaqcks.
Mosqcitoks.— Ihe iMosipuloes are said tube
worse along the Sacramento River this year than
ever known before. About Colusa especially
they are represented as being possessed of
longer, sharper and more penetrating bills—and
more importunate in presenting the same—than
any good mannered mosquitoes ought ‘o be al
lowed in a civilized country. The Union says :
“ During the day people are compelled to wear
gloves and bars over their hats and bonnets to
keep them from marking their hands and faces.
At night large fires are built around the town to
protect the citizens from the ferocious attacks
of these hill'presenters.” And we understand
that the young ladies and gentlemen have
taken a great fancy to the following passage
from some unknown poet, humming it all the
day long:
The minstrel of thf moonlight,
Thedarn-ed mosquito,
Now sings his month of music
In our mansions, high or low.
And what tho’ be stings sharply,
As the night comes slowly on—
We’ll hunt him round om chamber,
And lie may get dropped upon.
For California.— Every steamer confirms
the information that an immense number of per
sons are now on the plains en route for Califor
nia. The Elkliorn (Wis.) Republican of April
9th. says:
The road for several days past has been con
siderably thronged with California ejuigants;
some with ox teams, others with horses. Ano
ther detachment has just left Elkliorn. We
saw a large company but a few days ago from
Racine. They made quite a show aa they pass

California Lreislation—Jlrnsurr* of the
Cate Session.
The session of Uu- Legislature which termi
nated ou tlie 19.1 i instant, was the loudest by
over two weeks that lias ever lieeu held in Cali
fornia. A large auiomit of labor h.is been ilont,
and the leading measures of the session will
bear t rigid criticism. One handled uud
eighty laws have been passed, of which one
hundred and one are of a general nature, and
seventy-nine either local or special in their pro
At the commencement of the session, and at
various periods during its progress, the Gover
nor called the attention of the Legislature to the
embarrassed condition ol the Suites’# finances,
tfe repeatedly urged retrenchment in expendi
tures, and the adoption of measures to pay otl
the public debt, as the first means of attaining
that object. For a lime the opposition of vari
ous interests to these leading reforms was so de
termined and bitter, that it seemed us if the Slate
would be plunged into hopeless insolvency.
But there were many m ist excellent represen
tatives in our Legislature, and their industry
and judgment has triumphed to a great extent.
It we have not got all they desired to accomplish
for the relief of the State, we certainly have
gained many points, and a system has been com
menced, which with wise counsels in the next
Legislature, can be made to place the public in
terests of California in a very prosperous condi
The revenue law which has just been adopt
ed, levies a moderate lux on real estate and per
sonal property, but it is intended to reach and
tax alike all classes of citizens. It will there
tore considerably increase the annual income to
the State Treasury. The Foreign Miners’ Li
cense Law has been materially unproved, and
the tax in* reused from three to four dollars per
month. The Sheriff of each couniy collects ibis
lax, one-half of which goes into the eoutny trea
sury, the other halt into the general fund of die
Stale.. It is thought by good judges that the
State Treasury will receive nearly $150,000 from
this source. Our oilier license laws have been
also amended and improved.
The “confederation,” composed of a certain
class ot merchants, who have sold goods on
commission, and refused to pay over lo the Stale
the tax which they actually’coliected and pock
eted wiili their commissions, will be broken
up by the operation of the new law. This will
secure to the Stale about SIOO,OOO per annum,
which has heretofore passed inui tlie hands of a
few persons. Uur laws, levying a lax of three
dollars on every passenger arriving at this port,
fur which the passenger vessels are held respon
sible, have been amended so that ship mas.er
caunoi make false returns without incurring the
severest penalties. The money derived from
this source is entirely appropriated for Hospital
pu r poses.
At a moderate estimate the acts already enu
merated will secure $400,000 lo the general fund
of tlie Slate. Of course a good ueul more will
be collected, but by refeinug to oilier laws it
will be seen that a certain per cent, of the
money co.lected under nearly all onr revenue
acts, is set apart to pay interest on tlie fnndeu
debt, on the school fund, to support hospitals,
asylums, etc., etc. it must be apparent to every
one, that somcihing more than wc have enu
merated above, was needed to meet tlie accru
ing expenses of our government, and at tlie saint
time redeem the public credit. The act provid
ing for the sale of a portion of the Stale’s proper
ty in this city, it is believed will meet tlie emer
gency. The best informed lawyers in ibis city
estimate that tlie Slate will realise from a mil
lion and a half to two millions of dollars Iroin
the sale of this property. Taking the lowest es
timates of the sum to he realised from alt our
revenue measures, therefore it ts apparent that
over two miliums of dollars will be paid into om
State Treasury during ihe ensuing year, or u>
soon as this property can be sold.
We have room only to glance at a few of the
other leading measures of the session.
Onr old, extravagant, partial and inefficient
hospital system has been aboltdied. 'i lie three
State Hospitals, at Sacramento, Stockton aim
Sun Francisco, which have been maintained at
an expense of near $300,080 per annum, are all
consolidated into the Slate Marine Hospital in
San Francisco, to be maintained for SIOO,OOO
per annum. This economy, however, is not at
ihe expense of the sick. Experience had proved
it unnecessary to rent three hospital hiiduiugs,
and pay large salaries to three sets ol physicians
ana nurses, when all ihe sick of the State can be
belief cared for at one thoroughly organised in
stitution, under the management of one .set ol
Directors and I’hysicians. in addition to the
Stale Hospital, where all transient or non-resi
dent persons, no matter where taken sick, are
to be tieated, we have also a system of count)
hospitals, so that the indigent sick in every coun
ty in the Stale, will receive relief. To support
lids system, one half ot all the monies cotiecleu
as licenses from auctioneers, places of amuse
ment, billiard rooms, gambling bouses, etc., is
to be distributed in quarterly instalments to
each couniy, proportionately to its population,
which the Courts of Sessions or Boards of Su
pervisors are directed to use in establishing lo
cal hospitals. A State Lunatic Asylum has also
been established, located at Stockton, in the
building commenced for that purpose and par
tially completed last year. Two-Hftlis of the
money collected from passengers at ibis port is
appropriated to sustain ibis institution.
The Legislature have provided for erecting a
Stale I’rison on San Quuiten I’oinl, large enough
to confine “50 convicts. Its cost is not to exceed
$135,000. payable in bonds, due ten years after
date, with an annual -uterc-st thereon of seven
per cent.
By a new law. Comptroller’s Warrants are
receivable tor taxes, which will prove a satisfac

given for tax collectors to speculate in scrip,
while the State in this manner redeems her
obligations at par, uu matter what the market
The seat of government is permanently loca
ted at Benicia, which will put a stop to an an
nual expense ol SIOO,OOO or more, tor moving
the State Capital from place to place.
The law of lust year, to fund the Slate debt,
has been amended, so as to bind all warrants
issued oy the Comptroller up to the 30. h ol
June, 1853.
The terms of the District Courts throughout
the State are, under a new law, fixed at definite
periods, alternating so that the sessions in ad
joining districts will never occur at the".-ami
The net to regulate proceedings in civil cases
has been amended, and very many wholesome
reforms introduced, tending lo lessen the cost

The new law concerning notaries public ter

An act to prevent extortion in office, and to

visions, and will prevent the charge of illegal

A Nkw Gold Ukoion in India. —A new
region h is been discovered near Malacca, in In

he precious metal, as if Australia and California
were not enough to supply the wauls of the
wnrlel. “It has long been known as a gold
producing locality, ami at one time was exten
sively worked by Chinese, but for many years
has been abandoned, owing to the lawless con
duct of the Malays, who, being too lazy them
