The growth of our town since the fire has
T re«tlly been wonderful, or. rather, it would be
wonderful in any other country than California.
On the evening of the 14th of June last, there
were scarcely half a dozen houses left standing
—all the others were swept from die face of the
earth in the course of a short half-hour, and for
weeks after the greater portion of our people
lived and sheltered ben,eatli the canopy of Heav
en alone. Now, however, our town is entirely
rebuilt, and as a general thing with more ele
gant and subalaulial bouses than those burned.
Nut only has the burnt portion been rebuilt,
bat the town bag steadily increased in size, and
ihupruveiuents are still progressing in the real
California style. In the mean time, numerous
accessions have been made to our population —
families have doubled in number—ladies have
.’quadrupled, and, as a consequence, society has
improved—business has augmented two fold—
and, in short, Shasta has in every respect made
wonderful strides on the road of improvement
within the past few months. Persons who have
been absent since the early part of the summer,
can now scarcely recognize any of the old land
marks, so complete has been the change of the
entire place. Another year’s growth will work
still greater cfiajjge*.
Amox'VX of Goi.d Dust sent from Shasta.—
\\ e have ascertained from reliable data, furnish
ed us by Edward W. Tracy, Esq. that the
amount of gold dust shipped from this place by
A)ur merchants, and the Expresses of Adams &
Co. and Rhodes >fc Lusk, averages more than one
hundred thousand dollars per week, or upwards
of five millions per year. Some idea may be
formed of the business of the place, from the
statement that the shipments of one of our large
-mercantile establishments average not less than
.-ten thousand dollars per week.
The Times and Transcript. This daily
newspaper has made its appearance greatly en
larged, and in an entirely new dress. It is now
.« magnificent sheet, and second to none in point
of editorial ability. The editors claim for it the
position of the “ leading democratic organ of the
State.” The State Journal, exhibiting a slight
degree of jealousy thereat, asks to know what it
led, and w here it led it. The Transcript re
plies that it “ led tie democratic column in the
late election, and led to victory.” This again
the Journal defies, and avers that “ Bigler led
the column.” In the mean time the Unton re
fuses to make up an opinion about the matter
until it hears what claim the San Diego Herald
may present for the disputed post of bouor. Our
opiiUOD is that, whether the leading organ” or
not, it is the handsomest newspaper on the Pa
Mrctal. — Asa young Chinaman was passing
along ihe sidewalk a few evenings since, a thing
bearing the outward semblance of man, rudely
thiust himself against him—knockiug the poor
unoffending hey heels over head into the street.

unprovoked and brutal outrage. The Chinamen

of Gov. Bigler in Hopkinsville, butte County,
have recommended him for our next U. S. Sena

that, under no circumstances will he be a candi
date for that distinguished position. We pre
sume the contest will be between Messrs. Gwin
and Broderick
Dr. R. B. Ironsides. —We are glad to wel
come this gentleman to our midst again, after an
absence of some months in the Atlantic States.
Dr. Ironsides is well known to the readers of
the Courier, through his numerous letters over
the signature of “ Feuelou.” He is now en route
for Vreka.
Another Fire-Proof Building. Messrs.
Hollub & Isaacs are now occupying their new
tw o-story fire-proof brick building on the site of
their old stand, immediately above the fire-proof
brick store of M. Jacobson & Co. The upper
story will be occupied by Blossom A: Fran
cis as a billiard saloon. The buildit g presents
quite an imposing appearance, and is quite an
ornament to our town. Mr. Witt was the build
er, and Curtiss A Hughs were the carpenters.

The Pacific Typographical Society.
We fegrel to perceive that the proprietors of
the Alta California are again at loggerheads with
the I’acific Typographical Society. It seems
that one of the rules of this society was, that no
member “ should work for an office that did not
pay up punctually every week.’’ This rule was
adopted in March, 18 )1, at the special instance
of the proprietors of the Alta California. Not
withstanding this, “ the workmen in that office
have been denit 1 prompt payment; their earn
ings have been wiiheld for many days beyond
the time fixed for settlement; and once, when
reraonstraU d with, they received for answer
that ‘ the proprietors would pay w hen it suited
their convenience.’ ” Of course the journey
men then took the necessary steps to enforce
this rule of the society—(which rule, by the
way, the Alta bauds grossly violated by not
taking these steps sooner) —a rule whose adop
tion was urged upon the society by one of the
publishers of ttyat paper, and which those pro
prietors now denounce as ” tyrannical. ’’ Indeed
so oppressive have they considered this enforce
ment of a rule suggested by themselves, that
hey have actually in.ported a lot of the most
notorious “ hats ” (an appellation that no hon
orable printer will consent to bear.) from the
city i N'e v York, and placed them In tie stead
of llieir old band*, determined, they say, to be
freed from the tyrannical sway of rtie society.
A letter from the *• New York I’; inter's Union,”
speaks oi these disreputable typos as follows:
“ The parly alluded to are those which re
mained on the A'cir York Frprfiss at the time o)
the strike in May hist. Their names are Chas.
I’rnsch, Sylvester Shelley, William Bi 11, Henry
Land, and Michael McCarthy;—five of the most
notorious ‘'lia </’ tliat ever kit the port of New
York.” •
This action of the Aha California was the oc
casion cf a public meeting of over sixty mem
bers of the craft in Sap Francisco, who adopted
a very able address, and a series of dignified
and high toned resolutions, condemnatory of the
course of the proprietors of that paper. How
ever impolitic to the interests of the society may
he the action of the proprietors in importing a
lot of hands from New York to take the situa
tions of competent bauds already here, gtill it is
privilege, we conceive, the exercise of which
the society has no legitimate right to object to.
But they have a right tp object to the proprie
tors of that paper discharging honorable compos
itors and supplying their places with *• rats.”
We are sorry t|i:U the Aha California —the first
daily paper ever published in California, should
tarnish hg good name, and lower its heretofore
high standing with the craft, by filling that office
with miserable “ rats” from New York. If the
proprietors think they can belief themselves by
changing their hands, let them do so —it is their
right—but at the same time, for their own sake
and the sake of the craft, we would like to see
them employ men who are not odious “ rats,”
fresh from a notorious “ rat ” office.
Ar.r. About a Hat.—“ What a magnificent
hat!” “ What a beautiful bat(and out; Mug
gins said, “W-h-A-t a hat!") we have taken
particular pains to keep count of the number of
times that the above, or similar remarks have
been made to us about our new two-story hat,
(always accompanied with the question,
“ Where did you get it?”) Muggins’s, the last
up to the present time of writing, was No. 493.
To save all further annoyance, permit us to re
mark that this hat, the finest article ever brought
to this market, is the legitimate result of our su
perior political foresight, we having won it
from a most outrageous and unreasonable Whig
—Mr. Hanford, of Rhodes & Lusk’s Express —
who persisted in “ sinning against light,” or in
other words, betting against Bigler, futher
tnore, it was manufactured expressly tor us hy
J. R. Bradford & Co., 89 J street, Sacramento,
and brought through by our frieud Potter of the
aforesaid Express.
The Rainy Season. —According to the ordi
nary course of things, the rainy aoason will be
upon ns ere many weeks. Our advice then is.
to all, prepare for a hard winter. We are per
suaded that no one will ever regret having pur
sued this course. for although the winter may
prove mild, all kinds of supplies cannot reason
ably be expected to full much below the figures
now ruling in this market. If, on the contrary,
we have a repetition of the last season, and our
people are caught unprepared, as they were last
fall, the same scenes of sufferings will be re-en
acted the approaching winter.
Thaksgiviso Hat. —Gov. Bigler, hy procla
mation. has set apart Thursday, the 24th day of
November proximo, as a day of thanksgiving
and prayer to the Almighty God for bis good
ness. so signally manifested toward the people
of tl.c Slate of California during the past year, in
blessing them with health, continued prosperity,
and nnparalelled advancement in all the ele
ments of State greatness, and in their preserva
tion from the political and social evils which
have disturbed the peace and retarded the pros
perity of other portions of the earth.
Wn.n Geese.— The sloughs along the Sacra
mento river are literally alive with wild geese,
just arrived from the polar regions. The inhabi
tants of tbe Valley have killed great numbers of
them within the past few weeks. However,
the amusement furnished the sportsmen in cap
turing them is their thief value, inasmuch as the
supposed scarcity of provisions in the vicinity of
the North Pole, and the great fatigue* incident
to the long flight thence, have caused them to
appear with a most plentiful lack of obeseness,
[u fact they are excessively tough.
Chinamen.— <-A very large number of China
meu have arrived iy town during the week, and
we hear of many others on the road between
this point and Colusa. At present they are en
camped in the suburbs. It is 'be intention ol
ibe greater portion of them, however, to scattei
themselves throughout the county in a short
time, for the purpose of taking up winter quar

In compliance with the request of the gentle
man whose letter is herewith published, we
give him our opinion iu regard to the course
pursued by the officer to who nhe refers. V\ e
do not know whether the question raised by our
correspondent has ever been adjudicated by any
of our Courts, but are of the opinion that the
officer carried out the letter and intention of the
law. The law under which he acted is entitled
■‘An Act to provide for the protection of for
eigners. and define their liabilities and privi
leges,” and the first section of this act provides,
that “no person, not being a citizen of the Uni
ted States (California Indians excepted), shall
be allowed to take gold from the mines of this
State, unless he sh all have a license therefor,”
which license a subsequent section fixes at $-1
per mouth. And the naturalization laws of the
United States expressly provide that no alien cat;
acquire citizenship until he shall have resided
iu the country five years, and performed certain
other acts, which other necessary acts our cor
respondent has failed to perform, and is not
therefore entitled to the full privileges of a citi
zen under the law :
Eva.s’s Bar, Tiumtt Fiver, \
Oct. 20, 1353. S
Mu. Editor: —You will greatly oblige me,
and many others who are iu a similar situation,
if you would atford time and space to explain
to us w hat is the true position of persons who
have declared their in’en’ion to become citi
zens of the United S’ates, but have not completed
the five years residence which are requisite be
fore the (nil papers can be piopured.
There are many men in this county who have
declared their intentions, and have been resi
dents ot the State for three or fom 'ears, who
are still compelled by the collectors to pav the
tax to which foreigners who work in the mines
are subject.
In my own .case, a few weeks ago, a demand
was made upon me by the Sheriff of this county
for the sum of twenty dollars foreign tax. la'
first refused to pay. upon the ground that hav
ing declared my intention to become a citizen,
and in so doing, having sworn to renounce tin
country of my birth. I was entitled to he consid
ered and treated, if not as an actual citizen, at
least not as a foreigner. '1 lie papers which I
showed to the officer prove that I landed in
New Yprk on the- 27th June, 1847. and declared
my intentions on the 6’h January, 1851. The
difficulties arising from a California residence
have alone prevented me from procuring the
papers w hich will entitle me to the full rights of
The officer still insisting upon it, 1 finally gave
him the money, but further consideration has
induced me to apply to you for information, for
it appears to me to be so hard that 1 should be
considered a foreigner iu the country, to acquire
rights and freedom in which, I had renounced
my old home, and with it friends and much that
men hold dear, that I can hardly believe the
demand to be a just one.
The facts of my case, as stated here, can be
proved by parties who witnessed piy interview
with the officer.
Hoping that business will allow yon to favoi
me with a few words upon the subject,
1 remain, sir,

Editors Shasta Courier ;—By the bearer ot
this, Mr. Pennybakcr, who is a mutual acquaint
ance, I am requested to give you a statement re
specting ibis coast section ot the country. 1 ilo
this more cheerfully, as my present duties pm
data before me, upon which reliance may be
This northern coast country of California has
hitherto been considerably cut oti Iroin ingress,
except by water. This is particularly the case
in regard to emigrants direct from the States by
the way of the plains. Hence it is presumed
they know little about it; and it is possible
there is but imperfect information respecting it,
even iii your ow n section.
I will giveyou some brief statistics respecting
Humboldt Bay. lu February, 1802, we bad one
small saw mill, which carried oniy one saw.
and nothing was done towards the erection ot
any other. We have now seven steam saw mills
in operation, and for some weeks past they have
been cutting about 130 thousand feet of lumber
per day. Two more are in process of erection,
and several more are in contemplation.
Sixty-seven sail vessels panie into this Bay in
the mouths of July, August and September, and
carried away six million eight hundred and
seventy thousand feet of lumber. None of these
vessels met with any accident iu crossing or re-?
crossing the bur. Wt have a fme steam tug to
take vessels in and out, when persons choose to
employ it, and we consider that all liability to
disasters has now terminated.
Our farming interests in the vicinity may not
have kept full progress with the milling inter
ests, but they are by no means inferior. There
are about lot) farmers permanently settled upon
Humboldt Bay and Eel river, immediately in
the vicinity, and tlie*y are all doing well.
Our climate is the most uniform that I ever
experienced, and iu point of heallbfuluess can
not be surpassed.
When we get a wagon road through to Cot
tonwood, on Sacramento river, much of the in
termediate country will be settled.

True. —Man is strong —woman is beautiful.
Man is daring and confident—woman isditliden
and unassuming. Man is great in action—wo
man in suffering. Man shines abroad—woman
at home. Man talks to convince—woman to
pnrsuade and phase, Man has a rugged heart
—woman a soft and tender one. Man prevents
misery—woman relieves it. Man has science
woman taste. Man has judgment—woman sen
sibility. Man is a being of justice—woman an
angel of mercy.
In short, poets, philosophers and divines, to
say nothing about editors, have agreed that, in
some respects, woman was emphatically “ some.’’
But no man, from the remotest ages of antiquity
down to the present time, has summed up ah of
tier admirable qualities in a style so comprehen
sive, and at the same time elegant, as that re
markable man “ who had a brother," we mean
the immortal “ Toodles." “Woman," says he.
