A‘ 8« agent for this paper, he lias ever lieeu faithful and re liable, and any advertisin' placed in bis hands for tlie Courier, will not ftil of publication tor tile want of iitlention on his part. Br Last Night’s Mail. —Adams & Co. were first on hand yesterday evening with Files ol Marysville, Sacramento and San ITai.cisco pa pers of the latest dates. They are barren of news. Tn Tax Payers. —Persons owning real estate or personal prapertv in Trinity and Shasta Conn ties, should recollect that the State and Comity Taxes are now due, and that the Sheriff, if Uiey are not paid before the Itith iijst., will be com,, polled by law to collect them with costs. See their advertisements. (Iks. Wool.—Wo are informed that while Gen. Wool was at Fort Heading, last week, a number of Indian Chiefs came from the moun tains to visit him. They expressed themselvi s utterly opposed to being removed to the reser vation in*Colusa, and claimed his protection against the project. They assured the General that they would maintain relations of friendship with the whites during the winter, • We had prepared an article on the subject of the Indians for this week’s paper, but are compelled to onnf it in order to find room for the thrilling account of the destruction of the Y ankre Elafr. As there seems to be no earthly chance of electing an editor to the S *u itui i i! dignity, our brothers, Helm, McDonald, D‘*sh, cl U omne gams, may perhaps agree with us in the propri ety of taking up an outsider and making the best of him. —Marysville Herat I. Alter mature deliberation, and with the con viction that our chapces are singularly shin, we reluctantly consent to withdraw all pi t tensions and agree with brother Aden to f> fake bp nn outsider and make the best of him.” Middletown Ball. —Do not forget that the bull to be given at the Union Hotel, Middle town, by Mr. Towpsend, is to come off on next Tuesday evening. Ko pains have been spared to make it a pleasant affair. Childress Exhibition.— ln common with a full audience, we derived much pleasure in wit nessing the performances of the little people, composing in part the I’ublic School under the charge of Mrs. Sheldon, on Monday evening last. We have not been furnished with a pro gramme of the performances, and therefore can not speak of the exhibition in detail as we had intended. The salutatory address was delivered by Miss Mary Arm Keen in a manner *hat excb ted universal admiration. Indeed the various parts of the exhibition were executed in a style at once creditable to teacher and scholars, To wards the close of the exercises the sum of sev enty dollars was contributed by the audience, Destpuctios of Flumes.-r We are informed by Mr. Peunybacker, mail carrier, that Trinity Kiver on Thursday was so piuch swollen as to render certain the destruction of every Hume and wing dam op that stream. We learn also that many of those on Clear Creek have met with a similar fate. As yet we have learned pope of the particulars of their destruction. Rain. —The rainy season has doubtless fully set in. During the past eight days a very large quantity of water has fallen, and the modest streams that a few days since conh] be stepped across, are now big with suddenly acquired vol ume, while a thousand gulches and ravines that recently were silent as the night, (not a night in Shasta, however.) are ww vocal with the roar ing of the rolling, tumbling waters in their eager rush to the Sacramento. N. W. Stakh. —We have been requested in a letter received by Mr. G. F. Pennebacker from Mrs. Sarah Aim Smith, (who formerly resided at tbe Trinity Bridge,) Mrs. T. B. Elder, Mrs. M. Lane and Mrs. Elizabeth Perkins, allot' whom were passengers of the ill fated steamer Yankee Blade, to state that they are especially indebted to Mr. Starr, an Expressman from Marysville, for his disinterested kindness in protecting them during the dangers through which they have just passed. Mr. Starr is the same gentleman mentioned in the San Francisco papers, who, when he endeavored to get his money from his room, was struck over the head aud robbed of both money and watch by the wretches who commenced pillaging the vessel as soon as she struck. M. Shloss &. Co.—We direct attention of per sons in need of cloihiug, to the advertisement of M. Shloss & Co. in to-days paper. They may be found next door below the Shasta Book Store. A4««sa & Co.’s Express. " e return our acknowledgements to this Ex press for a regular supply of California papers doling the week. The HKeigff* F*'»* r r Henry apd John Meiggs, of Sap Frape.isco, have recently absconded front that pity, after perpetrating the most astounding and stupend ous frauds —amounting in the aggregate, ac cording to the Herald of the 9th, to upwards of two millions of dollars. Henry Meiggs was one of the largest operators in San Francisco, and John Meiggs was elected City Controller at the late election. Both were estee.med men of the most incorruptible integrity, and their cre dit among bankers and merchants was unlimited. Indeed the former was commonly called “ honest Harry Meiggs.” They left San Fran cisco on the morning of the 6th, in the bark America, which they had purchased through an agent several days previous, the agent alleging that he was making the purchase lor two gam blers, who were goipg on a pleasure excursion to ports on the Pacific. The tferHi says she had always carried one small cannonade, and three more were purchased and placed on board prior to her departure, evidencing an intention on the part of the absconding for gers. to make a desperate resistance if pursued and overtaken, * The 7’icics and Transcript of the 10th, how ever, saVs that the statement of the amounts forged, and of individuals losses, are greatly ex aggerated -r- There js as yet no sure indication of m°re than $ 11)0.000 of warrants having been forged ; these weie received at 50 cents on the dollar, and ihe loss thus ascertained is $200.009. — Placing the forged notes at the highest estimate, does not add more than $50,000 to this amount; and the extent of I he fraudulent issue of Lumber Company Stock not yet calculated over $300,000. hypothecated at the rate of twenty-five cents on the dollar would be $75,000 more, which makes the aggregate cash defalcation amount to $325,- 000 This is quite enough for even the recu perative energies of California to bear up under, I but it is pot. by any means a two million dispen sattoti, and there is no particular advantage in making the matter worse than it really is.” The Question —Several of the papers below have been discussing, with great earnestness, the claims of various gentlemen to the distinguished position of L T . S. Senator from this Stale. The Strife Journal thinks McDongall bettei suited to the Bupieme Bench; and Mc- Corkle deficient in that indomitable energy so necessary to accomplish anything considerable in the U. S. Senate. It is perfectly satisfied, however, that Mr. Broderick is possessed of all those qualifications for a first-rate Senator, that the other gentlemen are so deficient in. The Timex awl Transcript, on the other hand, considers Senator Gwinn the man; does not tlif nk anything of any body else; and scouts the idea of the North tarnishing a U. S. Senator, The North, forsooth, what is she, that she should ask fur this great thing. True, when an elec tion day approaches, the men of San Francisco who make politics a trade, ate ready enough to talk about tfie rights and the wrongs of the North, for then they recollect that about two thirds of the votes of the State are to be found in that division. Dot just so soon as the men of the North come up to their help and win a vic tory, they glide back into the old idea, (hut San Francisco is the State of California. The North, indeed, ask to furnish a U. S. Senator, while San Francisco stands! The idea is truly preposterous. The North ! Bah ! No wonder the Timex and Tranxertpt is disgusted- M e are astonished that the Marysville Herald should so earnestly press this point, evidently very dis gusting to our S: n pru ndsco masters. Depreciation ok Stocks.— The N. York Ecoji. omixt has a table of the comparative prices of six lending stocks in that market on the Ist Sept. 1853 54, showing a deprecation of $16,039,707 on their aggregate value within tfie year. Their total value on Ist Sept. ’53, was $52,039,350 ; on Ist Sept. ’54, $35,999,643. After a careful calculation of losses on other storks, on the bonds of various companies, &,c.. illegitimate is arrived at that the losses of the present year will pot fall short of one hundred millions of dol lars. The Fttfsr Battle oji the Pacific. —The attempt of) the part of the Allies to take i’etro, poloskj, was the first conflict between the parties at war on t}je Pacific. Ap account of this battle will be found on our first page. As will be seen, it resulted rather disastrously for tl e Allies, Their loss, in killed and wounded, in the attack is stated at 247- Noble's Pass. —'Lite JSa.craipeiito papers state that a party is being formed in that city for the purpose of examining and surveying Noble’s Pass. We presume those composing the pnrtv will be up this way in the course of a few days, when such persons in this vicinity as desire to j tin them may do so. 1 Passengers Lost. —The following are the names of the passengers known to have been lost by thg wreck of the Yankee Blade, viz:— Mrs. J.angtou and four children, Mrs. Brannon and child, Mrs. Sumner and child, Mrs. Smith, Mr. Moore and child, and Frank Mitchell. Bishop 5c Goodrich. — Ue refer the busi ness men of litis and more northern loca’jties. to the card of Messrs. Bishop and*Goodrich- It will be seen that these gentlemen have associated themselves together for the purpose of doing a commission and forwarding business at Bed Bluffs. Competent Witness— A native of Goa. on tlie west side of Hindostan, was produced as a witness before the Recorder’s Court of Bau Fran cisco, when objection was made on accanut of his color, he being an Bast Indian. The Recor der decided that the word black only applied to the negro race His evidence was, therefore, admitted. — Union. ty The Eeening Journal says there is a larger number of idlers iu Sun Francisco, in proportion to the population, than ju any other city upon which the sun shines. It seems str«nge that any man should he an idler in a country like California. Ex-Governor Morton, of Massachusetts, is said to be hopelessly ill with dropsy. T«>»t Wreck *f »>e Ysnsgec 9>Me ! GREAT LOSS OF LIFE ! Tile Independent Steamer Yankee Blade was wrecked op Sunday, the Ist inst., about 2£ I*. M., by rouping upon recks near Point Concep tion, in a log. Soon after ah,e struck it becanie apparent that she must be wrecked, wheu the boats, four in number, were at once lowered to take the passengers ashore. One of them was immediately swamped, and fifteen of the twenty persons in her were lost. Soon after another met with the same fate, and some of her passen gers perished. Only two boats were now left to rescue soma eight or ten hundred souls, and night last closing, and the wind rising ! We copy from the Herald of the 10th : When it became known that the boats were on the eve of leaving the ship for the last time that night, many of the passengers became fran tic, and in their eagerness to get on board the boats, long after they were full, jumped from the deck into the sea, struggled to get hold of the gun wale-5-gurgled and went down. It is supposed that a large number of unfortunates lost their lives in this way. Some, in despera tion, jumped overboard and tried to swim ashore, but a duck could nut live in such a sea. and they soop sunk to rise no more. Our infor mants estimate the number of lives lost us at least one hundred n ’id fifty, some say two hun dred—far more than reported by the Purser. • After the boats had stopped running, and night with all its horrors had set in, the scene upon the wreck was horrible beyond expression. All the after part of the ship and the lower steerage were under water. Upon the forward deck, and in the upper steerage, were crowded nearly three hundred souls, wet by the surf that broke over them, and chilled to the marrow by the cold. AIJ that dismal night they huddled together, expecting every moment that the hulk, which was quivering apd creaking at every dash of the waves, wcuhi go to pieces and launch them in eternity. No sooner had the boat struck, than a large band of men, armed to the teeth, consisting of notorious shoulder strikers and ruffians from this city, apd a portion of the firemen and crew ol the ship, rushed below apd commenced pil laging the baggage. They burst into the state rooms, ripped open car bet bags and trunks, plundered them of ajl the money and valuables they found, and cast the rest aside oroverboard. They displayed knives and revolvers, and threatened the jives of all who attempted to in terfile with then), or who even made an effort to get at their own baggage. Alter the rise ol the water drove them opt of the cabin, they be took themselves to the upper steerage, of which l hey took complete possession, and commenced a course of wild riot. They got hold of the li quors—many of them drank themselves furi ously drunk—ransacked all the luggage—ob tained a large amount of gold-—attacked, beat, cut and shot all who got in their way, and be came indeed a band ol infuriate fiends. They stationed a guard at the gangway to prevent liie betler portion ol the passengers Iroui coming down. Some of the passengers attempted to force their way in, when they were dreadfully cut with knives and bottles, and even their per sons robbed of their watches and valuables. This scene cin Lined nearly all night To ward* midnight three shots were fired, the lights were instant!}' extinguished, cries of “murder” were heard, and shortly after, at least thirty more shots were fired. There is every reason to believe that several of the pas sengers were thus murdered.. Some intelligent passengers freely express the belief that the loss of this noble ship was contrived in San Francisco by the “ shoulder strikers,” some of whom shipped as hands, and many of whom went as passengers. Among them were Jim Turner and the crowd of his as sociates, of whom the citizens were rejoicing they bad gotten rid. The cruelties commit ted by these men at such a time almost exceed belief. During tlie night of which we have been speaking, the wind and sea rose, and by 6 o’- clock in the morning botli guards broke for ward ol the wheel house and the foremast sunk through the keel. By 7 o’clock the boats from the shore again came alongside, and continued to land the passengers. Between 8 and 9-o’- clock, the Goliah hove in sight, discernible not farther than a quarter of a mile through the tog. As soon as she was seen, a shout of joy burst from the unfortunates who crowded the decks of tjie Blade, ajid hundreds of shots were fired to express their delight and attract the at tention ol the Goliah. The latter approached as near the wreck as possible, rounded to, launched her four boats, and commenced taking die passengers off the Blade by means of a rope suspended from the jib-boom. By 4 o'clock in the afternoon she had them all on board, about -50 being on shore, and started for San Diego. On getting op board tlje Goliah, the passengers were destitute of everything—rtbe ladies were wet and chilled, •ut.h rongl^tjje eagei kindness i of the ladies and gentlemen, passengers op the GoHuh, they were supplied with dry clothes and made as comfortable as possible. They were landed safely at San Diego, where they were well taken care of; and when the Go iah left, were well quartered and comfortable. On Sa turday morning, when the Goliah returned to the wreck, nothing was to he seen hut the wheel-house amt a portion ol the stern turned up. Ihe Goliah took oil those passejgers and the crew win? had been put on shore by the boats, and brought them up to this city. The T 'lines and Transcript g ys there were 812 passengers, «nep, women and children «u the Yankee Blade, besides a crew of 122. making in ail 034 persons on board. Notwithstanding contradictory reports, some of which estimate the loss ol file at from 10 ; l to 200, we are satis fied that not more than 50 perished. A great deal of censure is visited on C'apt. Randall, on account ol his leaving the steamer immediately alter sjm struck, while on the other hum), his conduct on shore, and the importance of fixing upon the beat place to land, find approbation.— Whether t|ie destruction of the Yankee Blade is the result «|' accident, and not to be imputed to gross negligence on the part of those in com mand, remains to be determined. arlibe.-c- Ifie Herald of the lOlb says; The California Guard, under the command of Cajit. T. f). John*, assembled at their armory at I- o'clock lust njght, and a|ter having prepared over one hundred ball cartridges, marched on board the steamer Brother Jonathan, e« route for the scene of the late disaster to the Yankee Blade. They take with then? the two six pound erswith which they paraded yesterday. Great secrecy is observed regarding their pmvemeuts, but it is conjectured they have been palled upon j to put down the desperadoes and murderers who ! have been carrying things with a high hand near the wreck. Several of the villiaps .engaged in pillaging the baggage of the passengers after the vessel struck, are now under arrest in San Francisco. We trust they may get their deserts. Rhodes A Cs.’s Express. Messrs. Rhodes & Co. will please accept our thanks for files of California J S urds fu| the week. Frs* HsaiksUl giver. The following letter, written in September, was addressed us from Humboldt River, one hundred aud fifty miles above the Sink, by Mr. Follansbee, a young gentleman well known in this community; Mu. Editor; —Trusting you will overlook the long delay, I send yon, agreeably to my promise, some items from this region relative to the emi gration via the I’lains, Over two mouths have now elapsed since the first trains passed down the river, aud notwith standing the line has been almost an unbroken one, “the cry is still they come.” From infor mation received I learn that a month or more will yet elapse before the rear trains can possi bly reach the Sink of this river. The emigration is thought to be about equal to that of last year, and the health generally has been remarkably good. Indian depredations have been frequent along the route. Many complaints have been made against the Pawnees on the Lo'ip Fork of the Platte River, where they have pot only stolen a great number of horses and cuttle, but it) some instances have battled for two hours in open field vyith the emi grants. In one of these contests nine ot them fell victims of their own temerity. The Sbushouees on Goose Creek and about the head of the Humboldt River, have alsebsmu very troublesome ; and have run oil a great deal of stock during the summer. From this point to Carson V’alley a different tribe, the Piutes, range. They have always been very pqpceable, and evince towards the whites a friendly and sociable disposition. It would be difficult to arrive at anything like a correct estimate of the amount of stock brought over the Plains this year. By many it is thought to be but little if any le»s that) the number last season. There has been much inquiry in regard to the “ Shasta route.” and the travel that way is probably more than double that ot either ’52 or ’53. Many have turned on to that read to avoid the fatal diseases to which cattle anti horses are subject on the Carson and other roub g. One feature of the emigration will be gratify ing to most of your readers. I allude to the large number of families on their way to make California their home, (mark it ye Bach elors .’) 1 with them are numerous blight eyed lassies, to makq their homes attractive. The emigrants are mainly from Missouri, Illi nois, lowa and Arkansas. Missouri semis pro bably more than all others combined. She, the prolific mother of a hardy people, while reclaim ing her own lands from their primitive wilder ness, still has the credit of leading in the mini fies of those who are fertilizing the fields, de veloping the mineral wealth, and building up one of the most flourishing States on the conti nent, —fulfilling thereby,perhaps, our “ manifest destiny.” as well as the prophesy of the poet, that “ Westward the star of Empire takes its way.” Yours, &c., J. S. F. Later from Gutamas.—The S. F. Sun of the 7 1 1 1 inst. contains a detailed account ot the affair of De Rausset Bonlbon at Guaymas on the 10th July last. The Count arrived at Guaymas in a small cutter, with two guns, leu bam Is of pow der, mid 150 stand of arms, allot' which be was compelled to throw overboard by the accident of his vessel running aground at the mouth of ifie harbor. When the Count landed he imme diately had anjiijterview with Gen. Yaueg, who, upon the assurance of Bonlbon that he “ was peaceably inclined, ami only desired to remain in quiet,” gave him permission to remain in the city, notwithstanding the populace were ex tremely hostile to him. On the 10th of July, however, o party of about 30 Frenchmen took possession of the French Hotel, aud commenced a fusilade on the Mexi cans who surrounded the house in great num bers. The consequence was that all save two of the Frenchmen were killed. On the day follow ing occurred the fight so disastrous to the inva ders In this bailie the Mexicans numbered 1000 strong, while the united forces of the French and Dutch amounted to only about 500. The Sun says: The conflict was ferriflic, but many on whose assistance De Raousset had count'd, failed him in the hour of need. Our informant states lh-t he counted, on that day, over sixty <!• ad bodies of Frenchmen in the streets, and that many more had since died of their wounds. The Mexicans fought troll) the tops of their houses, and had the advantage of several field pieces, fn in which chain shot, langridge, grape and cannister were tired with deadly ettoct, and made dreadful hav oc amongst the French. Had De Raonsset’s schooner not. gone ashore, and compelled him to lose his cannon and powder, it is probable that the result would have been very different. His defeat is attributable to the tact that he was in great want of ammunition, his men only having twelve rounds in their cartridge boxes. Peßso.%*!. Bkaptv. —lt is astonishing how sen sitive some of our coteniporaries are in regard to the matter of their personal beauty. The ed itors of the Marysville Express and Herald have been quarreling for some days about their re spective facial charms. The editor of the Her ald especially is very tender on this head. The Express incidentally remarked that the General was not the most handsome man out of jail, when the old soldier grew indignant instantane ously, and “ swore and cussed." The next day the facile editor made the amende, when he, the General, immediately shot off in au opposite tangent and rowed he did’nt think himself re markably captivating, but only “ sorso," and then abused bis amiable neighbor for his incon sistency in expressing opposite viewson the same subject, in the short space of two consecutive days. Verily, General, you seem to be like the young woman mentioned by the poet, —"Uncer- tain. coy, and hard to please.” In the course of this editorial quarrel, the Herald man also indulged in some rather hard names at the expense of the Express, the se verest of which was, that he, Col. Rust, was a “ handsome” man. We have a great fondness for Gen. Allen, and will always stick to him when be is in the right, but we must say that the term handsome,” as applied to the Colonel, contains an amount ol bitterness wholly uncalled for under the circumstances.
