SATCRDAY MORNING. APRIL 22, 1871 "KESSLER.” We this week had the pleasure of meet ing Ktssler acnicr and junior of Yraka, who were on their way down to San Fran cisco to purchase a new stock of watches, docks, and jewelry. The senior Kessler is known in this county as the original discoverer and locator of the renowned “Kessler Ledge” at Copper City—a ledge which Kessler once firmly believed to con tain untold millions of silver, to “say noth ing of the thin strata* of gold.” It took two years of hard labor in blasting and drilling “seemlesa slate rock” to convince Kessler that his quartz ledge was worth less. We am glad to hear that he is now prospering at Yreka, and that he is “entire ly out of the quartz business.” LAND OFFICE. The officers of the Shasta Land office have finally succeeded in getting the maps, records, etc., which have been so long de tained at Marysville. The officials of the Marysville office have placed every possi ble obstruction in the way of the Shasta of fice ever since the new District was form ed, but we guess they have about played their little game out, and now find them selves codling out at the “little end of the horn.” HAS HOPES. That popular Democrat, Jcfferson Davis, still has faith in the ultimate triumph of State Sovereignty, which he and Calhoun interprets to mean the right of States to seceed from the Union at will. It is high ly probable that those Ku Klux fellows down South will have to be thrashed again before a great while, and Republicans should be careful that the Government is in the hands of Union men when the next hall opens. FOR CLERK OF THE SUPREME COURT. Frank J. French Esq., ex-Clerk of Te hama county, is spoken of by the Red Bluff Independent as a candadate for the nom ination for Clerk of the Supreme Court on the Republican ticket. We believe that he is in every respect suitabe for the posi tion, and think he will receive the support of the Shasta delegation. ANOTHER NUGGET. This week James Vial brought into town a solid gold nugget which weighed fifteen ounces. The piece was taken out of Vial’s claim on the East fork of Clear Creek, near Chauncy’s Ranch. About four weeks ago Vial found another nugget in his claim that weighed seven ounces. STATE NORMAL SCHOOL. Patties desiring to become pupils of the State Normal School, from Shasta county, will please present themselves for competi tive examination, in accordance with the requirements of the Normal School Act, on the 29th day of April. LAND MATTERS. Business has been brisk in the Land of fice this week, parties from all portions of the country having been in town to see about entering their lands, or taking the steps preliminary thereto. The indications are that the Shasta office will dispatch a large amount of business the coming Spring and Summer. FROM PIT RIVER. This week Messrs. Rock, Brown and Cur tiss of Pit River Valley visited town on business. They report that the Fall Riv er and Pit River country is rapidly filling up with emigrants from Oregon and the Sacramento Valley. ON HAND. Captain Chas Anderson never allows any notable day or occasion to catch him napping. He was wide awake on Monday and unfurled the flags of all nations above Armory Hall in honor of the formal open ing of the Shasta U. S. Land office. SNOW. Snow commenced falling here before dark on Sunday evening, and on Monday morning the tops of the surrounding moun tains were covered with it. It looked rather odd to sec snow falling among bloom ing roses, lilacs, and verbenas. PIONEER STORE Mr. J. Isaacs, continues to receive new goods of every desciption at the Pioneer Store. The public are requested to call and examine his extensive stock.' PARIS. The French in and aronnd -Paris are still engaged in cutting eachothers throats by the wholesale. GONE BILLOW. Mr. J. M. Manasse who has been suffer ing for some time from inflamation of the eyes started for San Francisco on Saturday last in order to obtain medical treatment. They keep shady sow. The first wife of A. D. Richardson hav ing died, he married Mrs. McFarland, who Lad been divorced from the drunken and shiftless brute, Robert McFarland. When McFarland found that he could not pre vent bis former wife from marrying again, he sneaked up, assassin-like, and inflicted a death wound upon Richardson. Both Richardson and Mrs. McFarland number ed such men as Colfax, Grecly, and Henry Ward Beecher among their acquaintances. A. D. Richardson and his friends be ing Republicans in sentiment, therefore, when he married Mrs. McFarland, the malignant Democratic press and their echoes trumpeted throughout the country that the marriage was a free love affair, and one of the natural consequences grow ing out of the political and social tenden cies of Republicanism. These prints, and the majority of their readers, justified the assassination of Richardson, and the assas sin became an object of Democratic adora tion, overshadowing for the time being the memory of St. John Wilkes Booth. Change of programme! A leading Dem ocratic politician and lawyer of the Pacific coast, surrounded by wife and family, writes 180 love letters to, and keeps up an amour with a woman wbo carried her hos tility to Republicans so far as to shoot at one for raising the American flag in hon or of a Union victory. Becoming jealous, this female adulterer (also once the wife of noted Democratic politician,) shot and killed her paramour, and is now on trial for the deed. In the progress of this trial it. has been proved and admitted that the wife, family, and friends of the murdered man were fully cognizant of the shameful amour for years! Of course the friends and acquaintances of the adulterers were Democrats—prominent ones, too. Now no illegal or criminal affair was shown to exist between Richardson and Mrs McFarland, and the killing of the former was an unjustifiable murder; but the Crittenden-Fair amour does show dis regard of law, moral depravity, social de basement, and cannot fail to exert a terri bly demoralizing influence upon society Here, indeed, is a case, the history of which is not devoid of political associations, which may well serve as texts for moral and social homilies from the extremely virtuous Democratic press and model free love opponents ! But do they avail them selves of this golden opportunity? Who has heard a Democratic howl of condemnation and denunciation of this striking example of the practice of free-loveism brought to light among the members of their own political family ? If Democrats concluded that the Richardson affair resulted from the tendencies of Republicanism, simply be cause Richardson and his friends were Re publicans, they must certainly also con clude that modern Democratic tendencies have led to the aggravated free-love example now being ventillated in Judge Dwinelle’s court. If such conclusion is based on cor rect premises, the people may well feel alarmed at the progress of free-love among Democrats. The Crittenden-Fair case has a thousand times more free-love in it than the Richardson affair—and that is just the reason why the late howlers over the Rich ardson case are keeping so shady about this San Francisco affair. It makes a vast difference whose ox is gored with those vigilant guardians of law and morality. The Republicans throughout the State in every county, are disposed to be har monious, which means success beyond a doubt, especially for the State Ticket. Whatever local disputes may arise in any individual county, they will not affect the State Ticket, as all the aspirants likely to receive any show of nomination are worthy and acceptable gentlemen. The corrupt actions of the present State administration, have united the Republicans firmly in re ference to a complete change and reforma tion in our State Government, in which they will be aided by many independent voters and Democrats, who have become utterly disgusted with the partisanism and dishonesty in public affairs towards person al gain, manifested by our last Legislature. —[Yreka Journal. The Louisville Courier-Journal is the ablest and most widely circulated of the Democratic newspapers in the South. It is the Democratic organ in Kentucky.— The Courier Journal not only admits the existence of the Ku Klux Klan, but also that it is a Democratic organization.

THE “lOST CAUSE” SOT I.OST. [From the Selma, (Ala.) Press, April Ut.J Mr. Jefferson Davis, President of a Memphis Life Insurance Company, arrived in this city on Sunday night, from Mont gomery. On Monday he received many calls, and in the evening he held finite a levee in the parlor of Keipp’s Hotel, which was attended by a large number of ladies and gentlemen About eleven o’clock a brass band appeared on Alabama street, in' front of the hotel, accompanied by a crowd of two or three hundred people. The band discoursed “The Bonnie Blue Flag,” and on the cessation of the music, loud calls were made for “Davis,” “Davis.” In answer to,the call the Chief,of the fallen Confederacy appeared on the balcony, and addressed the crowd for about ten minutes in a strain of impressive eloquence, which told with powerful effect upon his hearers. He commenced by complimenting, in gen eral terms, the people of Alabama. lie had always loved them, and now felt that he could rest in peace with them forever They were bone of his bone, and flesh of his flesh. Alabama and his own State of Mississppi were yet one in principle, as they once had been one in Territory. Their people had sent forth their sons to battle on the same fields for their rights as States. But, asked the speaker, with bit ter emphasis, are they States now ? Yet, proceeding in an exultant tone, he declar ed that State sovereignty, although defeat ed in the late struggle, will ultimately triumph; its day of success might not come in his time, but he would live and die in the belief that it would surely triumph. He declared that no people on earth had ever suffered as bad tbe South ern people since the surrender of the Southern armies, and he loved them for the fortitude with which they had borne the oppression heaped upon them. He bad always been willing to give his life for his people, and now, if any Yankee power wanted his blood to atone for any action of the Southern people, they could take it. On him the Government had done its worst, and for himself he did not care, but, for the sake of the people whom he loved, he would forbear to express more fully the feelings of his heart. He never had asked pardon for what he had done, and he never would, for he felt that he had done no wrong. Mr. Davis concluded amid the applause of the crowd, which had loudly cheered the salient points of his speech. As he retired the band struck up “Dixie,” after which calls were made for General Pettus and General Morgan, but no re sponse was accorded, and the crowd soon after separated. Mr. Davis looks to be in fine health.” Commenting editorially upon these ut terances, the Press says. “In his brief speech in this city on Monday night last, Jefferson Davis reiterat ed his faith in the doctrine of State sov ereignty, and asserted his belief in its ul timate triumph. This is the first occasion of which we have any knowledge that Mr. Davis has, in public touched upon the general political questions that agitate the country. It must be that the recent elec tion in New Hampshire, the native State of his friend Pierce, produced an unusual degree of exultation in his mind. It may be that the expectation of a Democratic success in the Presidential contest of 1872 was strengthened and confirmed into con fidence, and he would no doubt consider such a victory as the ultimate triumph of State sovereignty. It is well that the people all over the couurty should know that so distinguished a champion of State sovereignty as Jefferson Davis has not given up hope of the ultimate triumph of that cause. In its behalf great armies have been raised, a gigantic war waged, bloody battles fought, public debt has been piled mountain high, and widows and orphans created by hundreds of thousands—yet it did not suceed. But now the chief who championed it, and who marshaled its forces, tells the people that he yet has con fidence in its ultimate triumph. AVe com mend these views to (he consideration of that portion of the Northern press and men which has been led to believe that the cause of the Rebellion is a ‘dead issue’ in the minds of leading men at the South.” The New York Tribune says the result of the Connecticut election shows— An undisputed Republican majority on four out of the five candidates on the State ticket of from 150 to 340 ; A Republican majority (3 to 1) of the Representatives chosen to represent that State in the present Congress; A Republican majority on the aggregate popular vote for such Representatives ; A Republican majority (13 to 8) in the State Senate; A Republican majority (of 21) in the Representatives chosen to the next Legis lature. Political Speculations. —Give three candidates —Haight, Johnson and McCop pin—with neither of them of sufficient strength to muster a majority in the State Convention, and neither of them willing to yield to the claims of the others, and it must inevitably follow that they will have to compromise on an outsider. Such, as I take it, is tbe present situation in the Dem ocratic camp. On the Republican side the choice seems narrowed down to Newton Booth and Mayor Selby, and, it harmony prevails, the only questions for the Con vention to consider will be; which of these two can carry San Francisco? To this there is but one answer; so that, if every thing works smoothly, as it ought to work, it will be, exit Haight, to slow music; en ter Selby with red fire and hallelujah chorus. Curtain.

Nye presented a communication from Judge Logan, of North Carolina, saying he was unable to hold court for fear of the Ku Klus, and asking for troops to protect him in the discharge of his official duty. — Also the statements of a large number of white and colored victims of recent out rages. Nye believed this condition of things constituted civil war. He tsked were Senators content to cavil over fine constitutional points while these wails were coming upon every breeze ? Blair said he didn’t want Senator Nye to shed all his tears over North Carolina, but to look at home. He therefore asked for the reading of the proceedings of a vigi lance committee in Virginia City, Nevada, and various outrages of recent occurence in that State. Stewart remarked that the Vigilantes of the Pacific coast, unlike the Ku Kina, had never taken life for political reasons. MORE STOCK. Mr. J. N.
