Governor Bigler lias written a letter to .Mr. Latham, mid the other members of the Califor nia delegation, in which he urges upon their at tention. with great earnestness, the right of this State to certain claims against the General Gov ernment. The letter is written with his accus tomed ability, and in that forcible, bold and per spicuous style that has characterised every docu ment emanating from the gubernatorial chair since its occupancy by the present incumbent. And first, he called their attention to the fact, that notwithstanding the parent government had failed to extend “ that protection guaran teed to us by tho Constitution of the United States” (in not defending our citizens against the aggressions of the hostile savages); that not withstanding, when this enemy was preying U[ on tho property and destroying the lives of our people in the years 1850 and ’sl, her officer in command on this coast, for the want of ade quate means, failed to respond to the demands of our chief executive by furnishing that protec tion to which we were constitutionally and ol right entitled, and thus forced our State Govern ment into an expenditure of hundreds of thou sands of dollars to effect that which it was the imperative duty of the Federal Government to accomplish that notwithstanding all these derelictions on her part, she has up to this time utterly neglected or refused to take a single step for the purpose of relieving our people from the unjust aud oppressive debt thus incurred—a debt amounting we believe to some six or eight hundred thousand dollars. He next reminds them of the clear and un questionable right of our State to the unexpend ed balance of the Civil Fuad, amounting to some two hundred aud fifty thousand dollars, This fund, it will be recollected by those who read the Governor’s special message upou this subject last winter, was collected, without authority of law, under the administration of Gen. Riley, prior to the first election under the Constitu tion, and anterior to the extension of the United States revenue laws over California. According to every rule of justice these monies belong to this State, but they still lie idly on deposit in the Treasury Department at Washington, and until some disposition is made of them by act of Con gress, they will there remain. The Senate last winter refused to return this balance to us. A plethoric National Treasury, however/ would at present seem to lend some plausibility to the hope that a tardy justice will be vouch safed to ns the ensuing session, and these claims allowed, if properly presented to Congress. He also argues the great necessity for the im provement of the harbor of San Francisco, and the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers, to the highest ports of entry which are within the in fluence of the ebb aud flood tides. He would have the “ Hog's Back” in the Sacramento re moved, aud the channel of the San Joaquin, for n distance of twenty-five or thirty miles, im proved by the General Government. To con summate these improvements, he thinks, wonld require the expenditure of but a few hundred thousand dollars. This may all be very true. The removal of the obstructions referred to in these rivers, might be effected by an expenditure of a few hundred thousand dollars, but has Congress the Consti tutional power to make an appropriation of this “ few hundred thousand dollars” for such a pur pose? Is she authorized by the Constitution to make these improvements ? If so. why is she not also possessed of the power to make appro priations for the improving of these rivers above the highest ports of entry 1 An appropriation of b " few hundred thousand dollars” for the re moval of snags and other obstructions to the navigation of the Sacramento river, between Tehama aud Colusa, would benefit directly eve ry man in this portion of the State, to the amount of three or four cents per pound on eve ry article in any manner consumed by them. The benefits resulting from this up-river im provement, would be ten fold greater than those consequent upon a removal of tho “ Hog’s Back.” Why then restrict appropriations to a jMiint so low down the river 7 If the power ex ists for one portion, it must of necessity exist for the other. For ourselves we do not believe the Constitution anywhere gives to Congress the power to make any appropriations for the re moval of the obstructions referred to. Mr. Polk, in his Internal Improvement Message of Dec. 10, 1817, argues this question at length. He there holds If the power to improve a harbor be admitted, it is not easy to perceive how the power to deepen every inlet on the ocean or the lakes, and make harbors where there are none, can be denied. It the power to clear out or deepen the channel ot rivers near their mouths be admitted, it is not easy to perceive bow the power to im prove them to their fountain-head, and make them navigable to their sources, can be denied. »V here shall the exercise of the power, if it be asMimei, stop, - May it improve rivers deep enough already to fldat ships and steam boats ? aud has ,t no power to improve those which are navigable only for Hatboats ami bar ges ? * » * * * * Giving to the subject the most serious and candid con sideration of which my mind is capable, I can not perceive any intermediate grounds. The power to improve harbors ami Kivera for pur poses of navigation, by deepening or clearing out, by dams and sluices, by lucking or canal ing, must he admitted, without any other limita tion than the discretion of Congress, or it must be denied altogether. If it be admitted, how broad and how susceptible of enormous abuses is the power thus vested in the general govern ment ! Pre-cnipliou rm. School Laud Warrsnu, 1841, the Settler has the right of pre-emption to all lands not surveyed “ according to existing laws.” Those persons, then, who have been making heavy purchases of School Warrants and laying them upon large tracts of valuable unsurveyed lauds, will find that theydiave been severely bitten, that their titles thus acquired are not worth a farthing, and that instead of be ing lordly landholders, they are but the misera ble dnpes of an overweening desire to be known us immense land monopolists. This is right. The fact that up to this time the greater portions of the best agricultural lauds of the State have been held by comparatively a few persons, has tended more to retard the growth ot our agricultural interests than all other causes combined. Yes, this is a just and righteous law. It pro tects the poor man, the actual Settler, against the tyranny of heartless wealth and the S' ulless speculator. They have cast their evil bread upon the waters and it has returned to them speedily. They have paid large sums of money from their own pockets into the public treasury, and yet have not encompassed the rights and in terests of the Settler with their golden network. In the admirable manner of the Alta, then, say we to those who would avail themselves of the privilege made theirs by the generous action of a wise and liberal Government— Enter upon any unoccupied lands you may find that are covered with school land warrants. Go upon them and make yourselves homes. Go, you wearied and worn emigrants from the West. Go, you eager and bustling son of New England. Go, you exile from the old countries of Europe, but now adopted citizen of the Uni ted States. Go, you wearied miner, tired with long (tigging in the mountains. Go, you deni zen of the city, who would have the quiet and retirement of the country. Go every body that can honestly take the oath, and where you find a tract of land not occupied, but held by a school warrant, there fix your home, and the law and the public shall sustain you in your possessions. •‘Still Harpi g on my Daughter.” —The Courier is still seriously agitated in mind on the subject of the Senatorial election. It would seem that our whig friends are more nervous upon this subject than are those who fought the battle, and won it. in September last. The address lately issued by the State Central Committee, does not meet the approbation of the Shasta Editor; we could have predicted us much. —Marysville Express. We thank you, Colonel, for the above. It con vinces us that we conduct our paper as we pro fess to do—in an independent manner. But you are all wrong. The writer of those articles helped to manufacture the immortal Committee of Nine, and he is now astonished at the work of his own plastic hands, fie is overwhelmed with a glimpse at his own importance when he glances at those valiant creations of his—those mighty fighting men and heap-big-Indian—so “ fearfully and wonderfully made.” Mysterious Disappearance. —We are in formed by Mr Raines, that, some days since, a gentleman by the name of White, stopped at the Upper Mountain House, on the Weavervilletrail, and put up for the ensuing night. Directly after dark he disappeared from the house, leaving his bundle, mule. &c., and has not been heard of since. He has a brother living in, or near Weaverville. Indian Stealing. —We are informed that a party of Indians stole several horses from ranches near the head of Oak Run Valley some days since. They were pursued by several white men, two of their number shot and another hung. One of the horses was afterwards returned, the others having been eaten by the Indians before they received this chastisement at the hands of the whites. Hong Kong. —Many of our readers, and even a good portion of our townsmen, are unaware of the fact that Hong Kong, situated just beyond the hill at the lower end of town, is fast assuming a degree of considerable importance. Those per sons fond of dabling in town lot specula;ions, would do well to pay an occasional visit to this suburban village of the Celestials, as from the great number of tents and cloth houses lately erected there, there is a fair show that real estate in that vicinity will in a short time advance in value. This flourishing and thickly populated, and most unique town, already contains a hotel, a gambling saloon, several stores, besides other business establishments. We presume Hong Kong contains a population of four or five hun dred individuals, while every day it has fresh accessions. False Licenses. —We understand that some scamp has been collecting the foreign miner’s tax from a great number of Chinamen in this county, and supplying them with a false license. Of course none of the funds thus collected will ever find its way either into the State or County Treasury. We trust the officers of justice may yet get hold of the rogue. Da. Aylette. —This gentleman, member elect to the Legislature from Siskiyou, called ujton us during the week. He will not visit the moun tains again until after the conclusion of the next session of the Legislature. Noble's Pass. —We see it stated that Dr. Wo zencraft is organizing a party in San Francisco, for the purpose of surveying this Pass. The Pennsylvania and Ohio Railroads own a number of locomotivesof a capacity equal to u speed ot 84 miles an hour. VST The joke sent us by “ E. X." is old. [COMMUNICATED.] What ia to be done with the Chinamen ? Three years ago it was a matter of no little cu riosity to the American miner, to see a real live representative of the Celestial Empire, with his wooden shoes, his prodigious hat of fantastical proportions, his shaven head, his long black cue dangling at his feet, his light springy pole poised upon his shoulder, and freighted with provisions and mining tools, as he wended his way, half walking, half pacing, on his road to the mines. But the time has now arrived when the China man begins to be regarded with other feelings than those of mere idle curiosity. Stimulated by the brilliant reports carried back to China by these first adventurers, and allured by the vast fields of wealth that seemed to open before them, as well as encouraged by the invitation of many of our own people, thousands and tens of thousands of these sable sons of Asia have crossed the Pacific—poured into our towns, and are now swarming in quest of gold through ev ery part of the mines. It is a notable fact that already, in many of the mining districts in this vicinity, the number of Chinamen is more than double that of all the other miners put together. And yet this stream of trans-Pacific immigra tion still continues to pour in upon us. Its tide is daily swollen by a perpetual influx from all the dark and dingy tribes of the Chinese Em pire—a country which boasts a population neans ly equal to that of all the world besides. A very necessary and natural result of this rapid accumulation of Chinese in our midst, is a clashing of interests, and consequent bickerings and difficulties between them and our own citi zens. Nor should this be matter of surprise.— After the American miner, with that spirit of courageous enterprise so peculiarly his own, at the cost of thousands of dollars, has explored wild, mountainous and savage regions where a Chinaman dare not set his foot—after he lias toiled, prospected and found gold—after he has encountered and overcome numberless difficul ties and dangers, in the shape of Indian pillage and Indian barbarity—after his stock has been stolen, his camp robbed, and his life periled a thousand times—and finally, after he has settled down to work with a partial feeling of security, in the hope of realizing at least some reward for years of suffering and privation—what must be his feelings to find himself suddenly surroun ded and hemmed in on every side, by a motley swarm of semi-barbarians, eager to grasp the spoils, though they dare not share the fight! In view of all these facts, is it any woder that we occasionally hear the deep toned murmur ing of discontent, and even threats of vio lence on the part of our own citizens, towards a race of foreigners who, having no feelings or sympathies in common with us, are rapidly overrunning our country, and appropriating to themselves those golden fields and fertile vallies which have been bought with American treas ure,watered with American blood, and rendered productive by American industry 7 But if California is destined to be made the receptacle for all the surplus population of Asia, it is high time for us to enquire what po.-ition our Celestial brethren are destined to hold in our body politic. Is our golden State to be peopled, through all future time, by two separate and distinct races, having no more affinity for each other than oil and water, and occupying the relative position of master and servant ? Or like two fountains that spring from different sources, and converg ing in their onward course, finally commingle their waters in one common stream, are the American and Chinese races destined ultimately to unite, forming but one people, retaining all the leading, original features of both 7 If the Chinese are to live amongst us ns our equals, exercising the same political rights as American citizens, it may be well for us to pause and consider whether we are willing that they should enact our laws, filhour judicial tribunals, set upon our juries, testify in our courts of jus tice, to the jeopardy of our lives, our fortunes, and our liberties. Ami finally, are we willing that they should marry with our sons and' our daughters, and people our country with a mot ley race of half breeds, resembling more the native Digger than the Anglo American 7 Zack. Pi.ank vs. Mid. — Those who waded through the horrible mud in the streets of Sacramento last winter, and occasionally had their feelings harrowed by the sudden disappearance of some amiable personage in the profound depths of a fathomless mud hole, will rejoice to learn that those streets are now planked over, and that the pedestrian or equestrian runs no farther risk from the perilous and deceptive holes down through which so many citizens involuntarily passed to regions previously unknown. New Line of Steamers. —We learn from the Union that a line of three new steamers is about being put on the Sacramento river, to run be tween San Francisco and Red Bluffs. The Cle opatra will be ready to put on the line in a few days; the others will not be prepared until the latter part of this or first of next month. They are each of about 80 tons burthen, draw eight een inches of water, and are to be supplied with two engines inches cylinder. They art owned by Gen. Reddington, Capts. Moore and Gilman. Smoking Chimneys.—As many persons arc now patting up brick or stone chimneys, it may prove usetul for them to know that, if at two teet above the throat of the chimney the open ing be enlarged to double the size, for the space of two leet, and the remainder carried up as com menced, the chimney will not smoke. We state this upon the authority of the Snmfifir American. Ihe Butte Record states that H. A. De Courcy was held to hail in the sum of $l5OO, on the charge of “assault with intent to kill.** It will be recollected that he severely stubbed bis partner, Mr. Hall. £p~Read Sheriff Nuuually’s advertisements of sale of valuable properly. From Oregon. Through J. A. Horsley, of Cram, Rogers & Go’s Express, we are iu the receipt of Oregon papers of Nov. 15lh, and the MoutUain Herald ol Nov. 26th. The next session of the Legislative Assembly will commeuceat Salem on Monday next, the sth hist. The name of Gov. Stevens is presented in the Oregon papers as a proper person for delegate to Congress from Washington Territory. Speaking of large cabbages, a correspondent of the Statesman says : “ After an accurate meas urement, 1 find one which entirely covers a space embraced in a circumference of nearly 14 feet, being four feet and six inches in diameter. The solid head is twelve inches in diameter. I think that the whole would weigh over forty pounds. The seed which produced this plant was not sown until the 21st ol May, and the head is yet rapidly filling, and will probably attain to sixteen inches in diameter.” Rogue River was very high, so much so that it was impossible to ferry animals. 4he Ex press messenger was obliged to terry in a canoe, and then come on foot to Jacksonville —Moun tain Herald. The Ball at Jacksonville, on the 10th inst., came off to the entire satisfaction of all. There were forty ladies present. — lb. The Weather. —The week opened with gloomy weather, and for several days it ruined cats and dogs, and we confidently anticipated by this time to be showered by fragments of polar bears. Happily, however, our forebodings were not realized, and yesterday was one of these bright spring-like days peculiar to a Cali fornia winter. Truly in the language of the old pious song, “ December’s as pleasant as May.” Weaverville Ball Postponed. —We are re quested to announce that the Ball at the Union Hotel, in Weaverville, has been postponed un til December Cth. on account of the weather. A Lynching Affair. —An insane Frenchman killed a very estimable citizen of Green Horn Creek, in Siskiyou County last week. He was taken from the hands of the Sheriff by a number of the friends of the deceased, and, after a sort of a trial, condemned and hung. It is but justice to state, that the parties who executed this sum mary punishment, believed him to have been in the full possession of his senses when he com mitted the murder. The Herald is very severe upon the lynchers. With that paper, we think there is but little or no necessity or excuse lor the necessity of lynch law in a county where the officers of justice are so efficient, as those of Siskiyou have always proved to be. Advance in Flour. —We are informed by Mr. Horsley that just before he left Yrcka with the Express, flour had advanced considerably on prices previously ruling iu that market, and was readily fetching 30 cents per lb. There was but a limited supply on hand. A large number of trains, however, are reported cn route from the coast via Jacksonville, and the proba bility is that they are chiefly loaded with bread stuffs. San Francisco. —According to the lengthy but admirable message of Mayor Garrison, the total debt of this city, funded and floating, is $1,900,101 90. The expenses of the City Gov ernment from the Ist of July to the 22d of Oc tober, were $250,028 37. The receipts into the City Treasury for the same time were $317.- 2.04 19; expenditures, the same amount. The estimated expenses for the balance of the fiscal year from the 22d Oct., 1853, to the 30th June, 1854, are $579,278 02. During the past year the taxes levied have been $143,000, the value of taxable property being set down at $28,500,- 000. British Periodical Literature. —Weave in the receipt of our regular numbers of the Edin burgh, the London Quarterly, the Westminster, and the North British Reviews, and Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine. They are as usual re plete with articles from the ablest pens of the day r , upon all the various interesting questions agitating the literary as well as political world. These periodicals have ever occupied a proud pre-eminence among the literary productions of the world, sustained as they have been by the highest order of scholastic ability and political sagacity. Indeed every article contained in them is of that character necessary to impart a high order of intellectual pleasure. Any or all of these periodicals may be obtain ed upon the following terms, in advance: For any one ol the four Reviews, $3 00 per annum; for any two Reviews, $5 00; lor any three Re views. $7 00; (or all four of the Re views, £8 00; for Blackwood’s Magazine. $3 00; for Blackwood and three Reviews, $0 00; for Blackwood and four Reviews, $lO 00.

A company ot gentlemen have secured from the Spanish Government the privilege for a sub-marine telegraph from the island of Cuba to the United States. The Journal of Commerce says the proposed route for the sub-marine line commences near Cardenas, passes through Cruz Ore Padre, Double Headed Shot Key, Old Mata cumly, and strikes the main land some where on the coast of Florida—the whole distance about one hundred and twenty-two miles. Di vided into four sections, the longest cable re quired will only be about fifty-six miles.

Journal of Commerce, dated Aug. lit, that Mr. Soheuck, our Minister to tlie Argentine Confederation, has concluded a treaty with Bue nos Ayres, securing to us fully and forever, the free navigation of the River Rio de la I’lule, and its chief affluents, the Parana and Uruguay. The British and French ministers are said to have concluded similar treaties. The writer contin ues ; These vast rivers, draining the most fertile country in the world, are now for the first time to he thrown open, under sanction of solemn treaties, to the commercial enterprise of onr ow n energetic nation ol the- North, and to others wins may enter the iisL, and they tire to heroine the great h’i'hwnys »n and front the rich Hnno* or grassy plains ol Central anu ion.del n Brazil, the eastern slopes of Bolivia, tie- abundant fields of Paraguay, and the undulating prairies and broad Pampas ot the Argentine Couiederation, and of the republic ol Uruguay. A new trade will spring up with three millions o people; not that ilhis will be the work of a uuy or ayiar, but the time is not far distant when these inhab itants. shut in by lofty mountains, difficult land routes, and, hitherto, by the short-sighted poli cy of bad and ambitious rulers, will feel new wants and acquire new tastes, when they find that tin- necessaries anil luxuries of the United States and of England can he brought to their very doors. No nation can compete with ours in this trade, if our people will now seize the golden opportunity which, through Providence, has been opened by onr representatives here These vast rivers, almost four times the navi gation of the Ohio, and in fact only exceeded in length by the Mississippi and the Amazon, are navigable for a great distance by sailing craft, but are peculiarly adapted to steamboat naviga tion. such as our own countrvmen are adepts in. England and France know very little about inte rior (if I may so say) steamboat navigation, for they have no rivers; but since the “Clermont.” in ISU7, steamed her way at five miles an hour up the Hudson, until tie- present lime, the Amer icans have had continual practice, and have made constant progress and improvement upon our gigantic rivers and our ocean lakes, until an undreamed of perfection has been attained. The Americans, then, it tln-y will lake hold of this occasion, are to become the great traffickers and carriers ol this fertile region.
