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.

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

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.

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.
