Terrible Accident. —A terrible accident
betel Mr. Joseph Driscoll on Tuesday, at the
claim of the Sacramento Ditch Company, on
the cast side of the rircr, about three miles
from this place. The accidcnt'occurred thus:
The hands bad quit work for dinner, When ’
Mr. Driscoll walked up to the high bank
against which the water from a hydraulic
pipe had just ceased playing, to look fur gold
on the bed rock. One of the workmen
observing his actions, warned him to keep
away front the bank, as it was liable to cave,
but the warning was disregarded, and a few
moments afterwards a slab of earth caved off
ond fell upon the unfortunate man, while in
a stooping position, and crushed him upon
the jagged slate bed rook. He was immedi
ately taken from beneath the earth, carried
into the cabin and a physician sent for. On
arriving at the cabin Dr. Pelham found Mr.
Driscoll insensible, and examination showed
that his left leg was broken above the «nkle,
and the flesh ground almost to a jelly ; a cut
extended across the forehead and through the
eyebrow, severing the eyelid and drawing
back that portion of the scalp, but the eye
remains uninjured. The nose wan also cut
open, and several holes cut into the chin to
the hone. His breast and back were bruised,
and the lungs seriously injured. Dr. Pelham
dressed the wounds, reset the broken leg, and
on the following day he was brought into
town on a litter. At present ho is doing
well, and strong hopes are entertained of bis
Heavy Flood. —The flood at French Gulch,
last week, was the most sudden and damag
ing that has taken place since the settlement
of that locality by whites. The rain came
down in perfect torrents for hours, and
several heavy slides occurred on the moun
tain, above the Washington mill, which
uprooted trees, and swept vast masses of
earth and rock into the stream below. These
slides dammed the water up until it formed a
perfect lake. The pressure of the accumu
lated water finally caused the obstructions to
give way, when the flood rushed forth and
swept all before it into Clear Creek. The
water in its headlong coarse overflowed
mining claims, swept off sluice boxes, wash
ed out and filled up ditches, and came near
inundating the village of French Gulch
despite the efforts of tne inhabitants to pro
tect the place. The damage done amount*
to several thousand dollars.
Drowned. —A Chinaman was drowned in
Willow Creek, near the Tower House, on
Monday. He started to cross the stream,
which is quite small, on a log which reaches
from hank to bank. In crossing be lost his
balance, and fell face downward into the
water, which was not over two feet deep. He
B * r,l ?3^ e d violently for a few moments, but
did not succeed in getting his head above
water. There was three of his countrymen
with him when he fell into the crock, but
they became panic stricken when they saw
him struggling in the water, and immediately
took to their heels and ran to a China camp
two miles distant to tell what had happened.
If the cowardly heathens had extended the
least aid to their companion his life could
have been saved. The defunct Celestial was
brought into town on Tuesday and buried in
the Chinese graveyard.
He Left.— A few days ago Peter Gercty
and partner came into town from Buckeye,
for the purpose of selling a quantity of gold
dust, which they had taken out of their
claim. Gerety carried the company purse
containing the dust, and watching * ii oppor
tunity, gave his partner the slip an . departed
for some other locality, without so much as
saying “ good bye” to anyone. His partner
and numerous friends are left to mourn his
unceremonious departure, and reflect upon
the uncertainty of all mundane transactions.
Spiritual.—We understand that quite a
Spiritualist revival has taken place at Piety
Hill, and that a number of proselytes have
been made to the table tipping faith. If the
time devoted to the elucidation of the mjste
riesofthis Spiritual humbug was occupied
in working the mines around Piety Hill, the
place would probably assume a more pros
perous aspect than it wears at present.—
Honest industry is a sure cure for the afflic
tion known as Spiritualism.
Fort C rook Road. — We are informed that
the proposition to build a wagon road from
Woodman's to Pit River Valley'meets the
approbation of all the settlers in that section
of the county. The subscription toward
building the road already amounts to about
nine hundred dollars. A contract will be let
tor grading the road as soon as the route can
be surveyed.
New I olume. —\\ ith this issue we com
mence the Seventeenth Volume of the
Courier, Notwithstanding the prevailing
bard times, and general complaint as to
dearth of business, we find ourselves enjoying
a reasonable degree of prosperity, and have
no occasion to find fanlt with our situation.
At Auction.— S. S. Dunnells, of Janes
ville, advertises his household furniture,
horses, buggy, cows, Ac., at auction, on the
Ist of April. Also, household furniture of
Felix Tracy, March 21st. Read the notices,

Court.—The District Court convened on
Monday, but adjourned on the following day
until next week. The Court ordered the
Sheriff to summon 24 jurors. No case* were
disposed of.

O. Welsh for a present of six different photo
graphs views of scenes in and around Shasta.
Concress.-a bill has passed both Houses
of the Legislature, providing for the election
of members of Congress next foil.
Great Impeachment Trial.
By far tbe most important case ever tried
in America has commenced at the National
Capital. The consequences of this trial of
t l lc highest officer yf the Rep*ibli* are pf>
more moment than 1 any transaction of a
judicial character originated since tbe time
of Charles I. No matter: whal thetvesult of
the trial may be, the issues at stake are of
the greatest magnitude. The question as to
the limitations of the President’s office; the
extent of Congressional or legislative power;
tbe strength of our representative form of
government to withstand the severest test
that can be brought to bear upon it; the
temper and stamina of our people in a great
crisis—all these, and many other matters of
great import arc to be practically decided by
the verdict. The decision of the Court will
certainly produce a marked effect upon the
political organizations of the country. If
Johnson is found guilty and ejected from the
Presidency in disgrace, he will sink into
political oblivion, and the partisans who
espoused his cause will share tbe same fate.
On the other hand, an acquittal by the Court
will militate powerfully against the interests
and policy of the Republican organization,and
probably result in the abrogation of the most
important legislative enactments and execu
tive decrees of the Lincoln administration.
Ihe proceedings of the trial will bo watched
with intense interest by the public. The
managers of the House of Representatives
are wen of experience, are learned in law,
and possessed of great sagacity and ability
in debate. Their eloquent pleas in behalf of
republican principles, and the sanctity of
our representative form of government, will
not fail to exert a powerful influence. On
the other hand, the defense will be conducted
be men of ability and shrewdness, who will
dwell on the dignity and importance of the
Executive office, argue on the necessity of
raising it above the assaults of the co ordinate
branch of Ihe Government, in order to make
it respected by the people, and inveigh loudly
about the dangers of the precedent of
impeachment on political grounds.
Earnestly believing that Andrew Johnson
deserves impeachment for his many infrac
tions of just and salutary laws, thereby
extending aid and comfort to the avowed
enemies of the Government he has sworn to
support and protect, we cannot but hope that
tbe verdict of the Court will be “ Guilty.”
Accepted iue Amendment. — A few days
ago tbe Assembly passed resolutions denun
ciatory of Congress and endorsing the course
of the President, and requested the Governor
to forward tbe same, by telegraph, to the
“ Alderman of my native village.” Seeing
that the ball was opened, the Senate followed
suit and passed resolutions endorsing the
action of Congress, and requested the
Governor to telegraph the same to the
President of the U. S. Senate. The Governor
returned the latter resolutions to the Senate,
with the statement that he declined to forward
them to the U. S. Senate, on the ground that
that body was preparing to resolve itself into
a Court of Impeachment, and that nothing
calculated to prejudice Senators against the
accused should he laid before them. Upon
reception of this message of the Governor,
Senator Mizner, of Solano, arose and moved
that the Senate accept the objections of the
Governor as being well taken, and that his
Excellency be requested to forward the
resolutions to Colfax, Speaker of the House
of Representatives. Whether or not the reac
tions have been forwarded has not been
Indian Troubles.— The Indians of tbe
Plains are again on the war rath. The
Montana papers are filled with accounts of
their atrocities, and telegraphic dispatches
state that over a thousand of the savage ras
cals are threatening the garrison at Fort
Laramie. Our opinion is that nothing short
of a vigorous campaign with volunteer troops,
recruited from tbo Territories and frontier
States, will ever put a stop to the murdering
forays of the savages, and give security to the
lives and property of emigrants and settlers
on our western domain.
The Baltimore Sun says: “Gen. Lon"
street has been the recipient of much ntten
tion during his visit here, both from the
army officers and the politicians. At Gen.
('i-ant s receptnin, on Wednesday, he divided
with Sheridan the honor of being the great
est attraction. When bis name was an
nounce by the usher, Gen. Grant imme
diately turned from the person with whom
he was speaking and met Gen. Longstreet
half way. presented him to Mrs. Grant with
great cordiality, and remained in conversa
tion wuh him for several minutes. It is
° n h'* recommendation, and in con
ihlnl ,° f Gen ’ Lon S*‘reet's support of
loon ß^' )nßtr i“n tlon measure ». Congress will
soon pass a bill removing the political dis
abilities of that Confederate General.”
Honoring Jeee.—The Johnsonitcs of New
Orleans received Jeff. Davis with cheers on
the occasion of his entry into that city on the
4th mst The fire companies turned out in
honor of his arrival, and as they passed Gen.
Lineock s headquarters their band played
the Bonny Blue Flag,” regel air J
mark of disrespect to the U. S. troop. The
loyal men of that city were indignant at the
demonstration in honor of the arch-trabor
and strongly censure Hancock for permitting
the ovation. Tbe presence of Phil. Sheridan
is evidently needed in the Crescent City.
Another RA,LROADZX^^ y has been
organized and incorporated for the purpose
of building a railroad from San Francisco to
Humboldt Bay. Tbe road will traverse
Sonoma and Mendocino counties, and will
lead to the development of a large scope of
very rich agricultural country. A contract
for grading the first twenty miles of the road
will be let in a few weeks.

Committee will meet on Monday next.

Impeachment Proceedings.
After passing Articles of Impeachment,
the of Representatives appointed a
committee of fsunagement to prosecute the
.case befqre tbo Senate. John A. Bingham
chosen chairman of this committee.
the 3d the Senate sent a message to the
bouse stating that it was ready to receive the
Impeachment Managers. On tha 4th the
Managers appeared in the Senate Chamber,
the Speaker of the House being invited to a
seat beside the President pro tem. When
silence was restored, the Chairman of the
Committee, Bingham, said:
Mr. President, The managers on the part
of the House of Representatives, by order of
the House, are ready at the bar of the Senate
to present articles of impeachment for the
■naintainance of the impeachment preferred
against Andrew Johnson, President of the
United States.
The President pro tern, said : “ The Scr
goat at-Arms will make proclamation.”
“ Hear ye I hear ye ! hear ye ! All per
sons are ordered to keep silence on pain of
imprisonment, while the House uf Represent
atives exhibit to the Senate articles of im
peachment against Andrew Johnson, Presi
dent of the United States.”
Bingham then rose and read the articles
of impeachment, the manager, also standing,
with the exception of Stevens.
On concluding the reading of the articles
the managers, with other members of the
House, retired.
On the sth the President of the Senate
announced that all legislative and executive
business would cease for the purpose of
proceeding with business connected with
impeachment. He then vacated the chair,
when Chief Justice Chase advanced up the
aisle, clad in his official robes, accompanied
by Justice Nelson, and escorted by the
committee appointed for that purpose, follow
ed by the House managing committee, who
stood behind the bar. The Chief Justice
ascended the chair, and in a solemn and
impressive voice said :
“ Senators: In obedience to your notice, I
have appeared to join with you in forming a
Court of Impeachment for the trial uf the
President of the United State,. lam ready
to take the oath.”
Judge Nelson then administered the
following oath :
“ I do solemnly swear that, la all things
pertaining to the trial of the impeachment of
Andrew Johnson, President of the United
States, I will do impartial justice according
to the Constitution and laws. So heir me
The Secretary then called tbe roll, when
the Senators advanced and took the oath
prescribed by the rules. On the 7th the
Chief Justice declared the Court of Impeach
ment fully organized, and stated that the
rules for conducting the proceedings must he
adopted by the Court. By vote the Court
then adoped the rules previously reported in
the Senate.
The Senate then ordered the Secretary to
inform the House of the organization of the
Court, and soon afterward the managers
appeared before the bar of the Senate, and
asked, through their chairman, that Andrew
Johnson bo summoned to appear before the
bar of the Senate to answer to the articles.—
The Court then issued a summons returnable
on the 13th, and adjourned until that date.
The summons will he served by the Sergeant
at Arms of the Senate. It is signed by the
Chief Justice, and the Sergeant at Arms is
required to serve it within four days before
it is returnable. It is reported that the
President will respond in person.
Terrible Snow Slide.— A terrible snow
slide occurred at the Independent Mill, near
Downieville, on the 4th inst., at 10 o’clock
a. m. Seventeen men were covered up, five
of whom were killed. The other twelve es
caped without any serious injuries—one man
having a leg broken being the worst. The
Alta, speaking of the accident, says :
The snow slide which occurred on the
Downieville Butte about ten o’clock on tbe
morning of the 4th inst,, carrying away part
of the Independent quartz mill, and killing
five men, was not the first one that occurred
in that neighborhood. The mill is erected on
the steep slopes of the mountain, on the
southwestern side, about 1500 feet above its
base, and a greater distance below its summit.
Tbe bill side is nearly hare of trees and high
points of rock, and thus there are no obsta
cles to prevent avalanches from getting a
start. After they obtain headway they make
short work of forests. On the 17th February,
1859, six different avalanches occurred on the
Downieville Butte ; two quartz mills and one
dwelling were swept away, and one man was
killed and three injured. The slide which
proved fatal came at ten o’clock at night,
without the slightest warning, noise or shock
until the moment when the house was struck.
An examination of the course of these ava
lanches showed that they followed slight
depressions or water courses on the hill side,
and as tbe mines were too rich for aliandon
ment the houses and mills were rebuilt, but
in positions supposed to be out of the path of
snow slides. The avalanche of the 4th proves
that there was an error in that respect. The
Independence mine yields SIOO,OOO or more
annually, and adjoins the Reis claim on tbe
same lode. The mill his 24stamps.
Interesting Situation.—The Solano
Press of March 4th relates the following;
A gay Lothario from Vallejo came up on
Saturday’s boat, and proceeded at once to
the house of a resident of Fairfield. Coming
up in front of the building, he commenced an
alluring whistle, and was soon met by a little
boy whom he warmly greeted and to whom
he donated a quarter to run and buy candy
with. He then approached the gate of the
residence, and was there met by the object of
his affections, with whom he had a protracted
conversation. The husband was shingling
the roof of an adjacent house, and, unobserv
ed, witnessed the whole proceeding. Think
ing matters bad gone about far enough, he
quietly left his work, crawled down through
the building, and entered the rear of bis bouse
and procured a pistol, well loaded, with which
he suddenly and nnexpcolly appeared at the
the house in presence of the parties.
I* ithout a word, he fired on the disturber of
his peace, who instantly decamped, minus his
hat, yet uninjured. Tie husband marched
18 u k® o * l into the house, and when last
he ** 3 P atr °B>og the streets with a

many years. Each year finds the Troches in
some new, distant localities, in various parts
of the world. Being an article of true merit,
when once used, the value of the Troches is

In calling the attention of the reader to the ad

answering the dictates of honest convictions in
pointing out to suffering humanity the honest and

man whose knowledge places it in Iris power to act
as a guide to those who otherwise would unwitting

ones, but turn to the Doctor who can restore you,
giving you in place of wasted energies and an im
