The D«r inucmtic StyieUuuvcuiiuu wljk.li con vened at Beueeiu on the 21st nil., made the fol lowing nominations for (lie various Slate t.tficea: For Governor, John Bigler, of Sacramento; fin Lieut. Governor, Samuel Purdy, i>l San Joaquin ; for Judge 01, the Supreme Courts Alexander M ells, ol Sun Francisco; tor Attorney General, John R. McConnell, of Nevada; lor Comptroller, Samuel Bell, of Mariposa ; for State Treasurer, S. A. Mc.Means, of El Dorado; for Superintend ent of I’uldic Instruction, I*. K. Hobbs, of Tu olumne; for Surveyor GeneralTs, 11. Marietta, of C aluverua, 1 be vote on the first ballot stood as follows: Bigler, 134: Roman, 58; liuuu, 47. Thus it will be seen that Governor Bigler was triumph antly n-nominated on the first ballot. This re sult, while it doubtless creates some discontent among the enthusiastic friends of Maj. Homan, i* hailed with satisfaction by the democracy at large. Gov. Bigler hu< been so maliciously and blindly villified by a portion ot the independent (not the \Miig) press for months past, that the sympathies of his party throughout the Slate were excited in his behalf. They determined that he should not be killed off with ignominy by the slanderous pens of the bitterest enemies of the party. Gov. Bigler is not a weak man in Cali fornia to-day, and the Whig party will do well to look upon him as such in making their nomi nation in the Sacramento Convention. Mr. Purdy was re-nominated for Lieut. Gover nor with very little opposition, his principal op ponents being Messrs. Bradford and Warner. His nomination was made, we imagine, with the view to unite the “ exleuliouists and uuti-exteu tionisfs" of Sun Francisco. The Domination of Alexander W ells for Judge of the Supreme Court, was made by acclamation, the name of no gentleman being presented in opposition. Mr. Wells is doubtless an able man, but decidedly objectionable for the lack of •* mo ral character and purity of life.” His great pop ularity in the Convention is a perfect mystery to os. We look in vain for the cause of it. Mr. McConnell, fur Attorney General, was also nominated by acclamation. He appears to be very popular with his party in the large min ing counties, and will therefore lend additional strength to his ticket. Mr. Bell, for Comptroller, although a young man, is said to be qualified for this important position. He it supposed to be particularly popular in the South. We think the nomination of Mr. Pierce would have been decidedly pre ferable in every respect. His untimely with drawal of hit name from before the Convention, is the only cause of bis defeat. Mr. McMeans, for Treasurer, is also a politic nomination. As a legislator, he is extensively known as an industrious and energetic worker. Hailing from the strongest democratic portion of the State, fate will of course poll the full strength of bis party. Mr. Hubbs, for Superintendent of Public In struction, is certainly one of the least objection able nominations on the ticket. He is a man of the most indefatigable energy, a most important qualification for this position. Of Mr Marlette, for Surveyor Genera], we know but little. Ho is, however, spoken of as a gentleman of fair talents. Taken at a whole, we think the ticket is well calculated to concentrate the strength of the Democratic party. Whether it will be elected depends in a great measure upon the action of the Whig State Convention, to be held in Sac ramento on Thursday next. The Fourth or Jl lt. — Do not forget the pic nick to come off at Lake Ranch on Monday next. Mr. Moody has made every arrangement to make it a pleasant affair, as it cannot fail to be from the fact that so many of the fair will be present. E. Garter, Esq., will deliver an ad dress on the occasion. So do not forget the pic * nick at Lake Ranch. Ball at Yrkka. —A grand ball will be given •t the Washington Hall in Yreka, on the Fourth of July. We regret extremely the impossibility of our attendance, in obedience to the v» ry po lite invitation which has been forwarded to us by the management. We have no doubt it will be a very brilliant and a very pleasant affair. T«* Statutes or ’s3,—lVe return our thanks to Geo. Kerr. Bsq., State Printer, for a copy of the Statutes of California, passed at the Fourth Session of the Legislature. The work is ext- CBted in a most creditable manner. Dxx».—VV e regret to learn that vvm. B. Bo* I * w T* r formerly ef Bellville, 111., •td recently of this place, died e few weeks •twee, Los Angeles, of consumption. 4 * r jn u > ■ "" C««iii7 J««4g« ud O anclrn, la our paficr of June 11th we published « small paragraph headed “ Foreign Miner's License," iu which we expressed the “regret that our Couuty Judge had felt it his duly to fix the Sheriff’s per cen'.age for collecting at any thing less thau the full amount allowed by the law ” We are sorry that this simple exercise of an undisputed privilege possessesred by every American citizen—the right to approve or dis approve the acts of our officials—should have been construed by our County Judge into a cen sure of his motives in the premises. We ex pressed no censure, for we believe he was acting conscientiously; no rendering of our language will justify any such construction; we -imply expiessed the regie! that he differed irom us in his construction of the law. He believes the law does not empower him to allow the Sheriff and his deputies inert than 22 pci cent, on the amount collected for foreign licen ces, and that the three percent, allowed to the Recorder should make up the remainder of the 25 per cnnlage spoken of in the net. We be lieve that the law authorizes him to allow the Sheriff—if it authorizes him to allow that officer any sum, under the circumstances, above three per cent.—the full 25 per cuutuge, and that the three percent, ullowid the Recoider is altogeth er a separate thing, and iu this position we arc sustained by the opinions of Comptroller Tierce and some of the first legal talent of the Stale. This is the difference between us. Surely we •re at liberty to express our opinions on the question without impugning the integrity of the County Judge. Uuce for all we disclaim auy • hing of the kind, and we trust that 110 one will consider himself attacked iu this paper, unless ■t is done iu white and black. W hen we think it our duty to anim'adveri severely upon the acts of auy public officer, wo will nut do it by inner do, hut in plain, blunt terms, free from all am biguity. Bui that we may not be accused of unfairness m this matter, we publish that portion of tin law touching upon the question at issue:— Skc. 18. The Sheriff shall power, and it is hereby made Ins duly In appoint a si.(lieu n number ut deputy coin elm s to assist hitn 111 ’.lie collectn.n ot Uie lux provided lor in this Act; said deputy collectors to be paid not less than lilleen per cent, on /ill sums collected by them ; a'>d the Sheriff shall he responsible lor the acts ot said d« [i#ty collectors, unci may require from hem such bund and suiely a- he may deem proper lor his own indemnilicuiiun. anil tor such service lie shall be eiiliiieU to receive three per cent, on ull sums colit cled by lliitu. Should the Board of Bup» rvisors, or, in the event ot there being no such Board, then the Comity Judge, deem the net ceutuge to he paid to dep uty collectors provisions of this section to he insufficient, an order may he entered bv the Board of Supervisors or the Comity Judge, providing that an additional sum shall he paid such deputy collector, tint to exceed in all ivven ly-tive per cent., to be paid as herein provided. The County Recoider of each county shall re ceive three per cent, on ail sums collected under the provisions of this Act. Re-building of Shasta. The work of re building our town is going forward with the most gratifying rapidity. Some twenty houses have already been erected and occupied by merchants and others on the sites of their old stands. Among these we may men tion the names of Messrs. Loag, Mackay, Rhodes & Lusk. Calluhagn, Young, Adams & Co., Dr. Shurtleff, Jacobson &, Co., Hollub & Isaacs, Norton, Myers & Ruder, Plummer & Mitchell, Downer &. Co., Chase and Gavaud. Todd & Jones have also erected a ware house, one hundred feet deep, on the flat to the north of Maine street. In addition to these, numerous buildings are now going up, while others will be put in a process of erection so soon as the lumber can be brought upon the ground ; among these are the St. Charles, Empire, and Eldorado hotels. Indeed the entire business portion of tin town is being re-built with almost magic rapidi ty, and a few weeks will suffice to make Shasta in every respect a superior town to what it was previous to the fire. Maine street is now 100 feet wide, of itself one of the greatest securities against the spread of fire that we could possibly have. When it is properly graded if will be one of the handsomest streets in any mining town in the State. In short, all we want is another month to place Shasta in statu quo ante helium. .Coal. —Messrs. Peter Grinnell and Daniel S. Wilder have laid upon our table a specimen of anthracite coal of a very superior quality, taken from a bed just discovered by them at the month of Union creek, a tributary of Cottonsvood. some fifteen miles from this place. The article has been thoroughly tested by several of the blacksmiths of this place, and found to burn with remarkable freedom. The bed, so far as it has been prospected, is about two feet in thickness, and in all likelihood will prove a “lucky strike ’’ to the fortunate discoverers. The Weather —The weather in this place for some days has been most remarkable. In the early part of the week we had the cold winds of March —perfect storms —in the latter part the days were hot as August, while the nights were made delightfully pleasant by cool winds from the nor'hwesf. Red Btcrr Market. — We are indebted to Messrs. Cavert Co. for a report of the prices current of Red Bluff's. We are promised them regularly hereafter. In this connection w< would refer packers aud traders to the adver tisements of Messrs. Cavert & Co. in to-dayV paper. They offer s' rong inducements for pur chasers to give them a call. — . Y Baxter? iXi Co.'s Abasia and Sacramento Dailt Line or Stages. — Owing to the fact that the water has not yet fully reiired from the tub land lying between Co'msa and Sacramento. Messrs. Bax'er & Co. Lave not been able to run their stages through to the last mentioned place. W« understand that, on Monday next, they will put their stages on the road from Monroeville to Marysville.

Cocrixr:—The new diggings discover ed at the head of Rich Gulch, although uot thor oughly prospected, have proved very rich. The gold is fouud in the bank from 40 to 80 yards from the creek, and the dirt has to be packed in bags to the water. A meeting of the citizens and miners was held on Saturday evening, to take into consid eration the practicability of bringing the water from Squaw G eek into Rich Gulch at an eleva tion sufficient to benefit the hill diggings. Mr. Lomus reported that he had made a casual sur vey of the *oute, and that the water could be brought iu fur about SO,OOO. A committee was appointed to open subscription books for stock, between two and three thousand of which was made up immediately. Dissatisfied prospecting parties from Feather River are returning every day or two, well con tented to remain here. A few days since I saw the snug little sum of 128$ ounces divided between three men, the proceeds of four weeks am: five days labor in Rich Gulch. Tmo«. • [Per Cham, Rogers Co.’s Express.] Regular Trinity Correspondence. Weaverville, June 30, 1833. Gents; —There is not much news stirring this week worth reporting. The principal topic of conversation is the capriciousuess of the wea ther. and the complaint we think is well foun ded, for, alter sweltering through some of the hottest days of our remembrance last week,we were compelled on Sunday to apply to onr over coat and stove for comfort. On Saturday anil Sunday nights there was a “ right smart” frost, Out the damage to the crops was trifling. Our town is not quite so lively at present as it has been, owing to many persons leaving for J'rinity and Salmon Rivers, and their neighbor • ng branches and creeks, whose waters are getting -efficiently low' to allow the working of limit beds. The steady hand of improvement is discern ible all around town, in the decoration of the old and building of new bouses. Preparation for our ball, to come off on (lit. Fourth’’ is still going on, and we shall he sadly disappointed it we do nut have a de egatiou from your city in attendance. Yours respectfully, Adobe. Rough and Ready in Ashes. We regret to learn that the flourishing town of Rough and Ready was almost entirely con sumed by fire on the morning of the 28th Juue. The conflagration is attributed to the careless ness of a merchant, in leaving a candle burning when he went to bed. We extract the follow ing particulars from the correspondence of the Marysville Express Only fifteen buildings are now standing in the town, including all kinds of shops, etc. Up wards of forty wefe destroyed, composing the entire central business portion of the place, nearly all ol which were occupied as business bouses. But few goods were saved by any one —and not a dollar’s worth by the majority of sufferers. The loss is estimated at SB3 to $95. and as high as SIOO,OOO. The Post Office was saved; Adams’ Express burned, books etc. se cure in the safe upon examination ; every bake ry in town gone; carpenter shop and every store hut one, and that happens to be a butch ery as well, or we would have had no breakfast tins morning The air was calm, and that was the only salvation of the few of us who es caped. Tkimtt Senatorial Convention. — J. Logan, J. S. Williams, Wm. M. Lowe, of Trinity ; A. J. Huestes of Humboldt; D. D. Colton. L. Fair child, of Siskiyou; W. 13. Jenkins, S. G. Whip ple of Klamath—Delegates to the Democratic State Convention, in a meeting held in Benicia on the 22J ol June, passed the following resolu tion : Resolved, That we recommend to the Democ racy of suit! counties, in the event of no definite action having been taken in the matter by said counties. That they meet in a District Conven tion through their Delegates at Orleans Bar in Klamath County, on the 21st day of July, 1853, for the purpose of nominating a Democratic candidate fer the Slate Senate. It will be seen by reference to the proceed ings of the Trinity County Democratic Coiiven vention, that that body recommends Weaver vjlle us the place, and July2(jtli as the time, for holding the Senatorial Convention for the 22d Senatorial District. ~ y Hall & Crandall’s Shasta and Sacramen to Daily Line or Stages. —This is at present the longest stage route in California. Within the past few weeks we have had occasion to passover it twice, ami noticed with pleasute the completeness of all the arrangements of the line for I lie accommodation of passengers. Their stock of splendid horses are in the most admira ble plight, while, what is more important still we found the drivers and agents accommodating and affable to a fault. , For the present their office in this place is in the building of Adams & Co. Hostile Indians. — We understand that a number <»f hostile Indians are daily observed prowling about the vicinity of the Upper Moun tain House on the Weaverville trail. On Thurs day night last Mr. Stett was shot at by them near the summit of the monntain. Ttavelers should keep a sharp look-out while on the tuouti tain. New Diggings. — Very nth diggings have been discovered within the last week in the tiilU at the head of Rich Gulrh on Pitt River. One of the parties sunk a shaft some 33 ft et deep, and took 10 ounces of gold out of 80 buck ets of dirt. This is but another evidence that die Pitt River region i« rirhlv auriferous.
