Whenever attempt is made to put a law of the last Legislature in operation, blun ders and contradiction are encountered at every step. The School Law was horribly mutillated. Here is one specimen : Section thirty-seven says : “Trustees -elect shall take office on the first Saturday in-July next after their election.” Section forty says: “Each Board of Trustees shall, within ten days after the election, meet at the school-house” for the election of one of their number Clerk, etc. The intention was, that Trustees should meet and elect a Clerk etc., ten days after the beginning of the new term of office.— All concerned will therefore note this, and act accordingly. FIFTY-SECOND ANNIVERSARY. 1 The &2d anniversary of Odd-Fellowship in the United States was observed by the members of Shasta Lodge, and invited guests, on Wednesday evening, by appro priate tableauzs, vocal and instrumental music, dancing, and a grand supper. The affair was quietly gotten up by members of the Lodge, and no effort at display was made, yet it proved a fioe success, credita ble to all concerned. To the ladies, who interested themselves in the matter, great . credit Is due. PANTHER KILLED. Last week George Everets and William Ruster were passing along Hulen Creek near George Rail’s ranch when a small dog which accompanied them treed a large panther. One of the party carried a shot gun loaded with bird shot, and he walked up close to the tree and fired several charges in the face of the panther, putting out its eyes and disabling it for effective fight or flight. A rifle was finally procured and a well direct ed shot tumbled the animal out of the tree and ended its maraudering career. GUI LTV. On Wednesday, the Jury in the Critten den-Fair case, after being out less, than an hour, found a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree, against Mrs. Fair. We incline to the opinion that when this ver dict is carried out, the scales of Justice will stand about evenly balanced. Critten den met the fate he deserved, and Mrs. Fair ought to be hanged higher than Haman. STATE PRINTER. We hear a number of candidates suggested for State Printer, all of whom are strangers to os personally. Onr acquaintance withT. A. Springer, of Amador, is only through the medium of an exchange, but we be lieve he is our first choice for the office.— Springer always stands op to-*be party rack, fodder or no fodder, and we think he deserves a friendly lift at the hands of the next Republican State Convention. WILL BE ATTENDED TO Dr. Mooers, of Burgettville, rrrkes to us in relation to matters affecting the general welfare of the people of Fit River Valley, and we assure him that we shall do our „.part toward bringing about a satisfactory solution and adjustment of local difficulties. I. O. O. F. Shasta Lodge No. 57, I. O. O. F., has elected Samuel Isaackg, Henry Habich, and J. E. Pelham as Representatives to the Grand Lodge of the State. The French Gulch Lodge has elected E- Dickerson as Representative. SOLD OUT. S. Waymire recently sold his ranch on Little Cow Creek to Mr. Harden, and has moted but of the county, leaving the “Peo ple of the State of California” minus the maid witness in a suit brought at the in • -stance of the aforesaid Waymire. Volume -the Shasta Courier, nett to the Chronicle the oldest weekly in the State, has entered upon its twentieth ’ volofee. We yrieh it continued success.— --•psddtpM. -r - . ... . ' j BRIEF MENTIOW. The Bed Bluff Independent has been enlarged and otherwise improved. District Court, Judge Rosborough pre siding, is in session. The Sacramento Daily Record proposes our townsman, Hon. J. N. Chappelle, as a suitable candidate for Secretary of State. Charles A. Garter Esq , has returned to Shasta and will permanently reside here. He will enter upon the practice of his profession. We are informed that twenty additional tamilics have located in Pit and Fall River Valleys since the Ist of March, and others are on the way to the same locality. Goods are arriving for J. N. Chappelle’s new establishment His advertisement will appear next week. From all portions of this county we bear the most favorable repoits concerning the growing crops. The general opinion is that the coming harvest will be “bully”— which means very good. We see by the Red Bluff Independent that the Republican Central Committee of Tehama have decided to adopt the Craw ford plan of making nominations. £. F. Crocker has sold bis water and saw mill right on Brandy Creek to John Flemming. Crocker contemplates moving into Shasta. Gen. Beddington announces that he will make no scramble to secure the Guberna toral nomination, or sanction any proceed ure calculated to produce discord in the Republican ranks PLAYED OUT. An exchange intimates that in the next campaign Democratic candidates and their strikers will indulge in an unusual amount of misrepresentation, blowing and cheek. That sort of thing has been “spotted” by the people of Shasta, however, and they have ceased to believe everything they hoar. In the last campaign unposted peo ple were well stuffed with the story that Ft Crook would poll a very heavy vote, and that the Democratic candidates would receive from fifty to sixty majority in that precinct. When the election returns came in, and it was found that Fort Crook precinct gave a majority for the Republi can candidates, the premeditated Democrat ic dodge was exposed, and some credulous people hughely disgusted to think they had allowed themselves to be gulled by members of their own party. FIXED. We notice by the San Francisco Chroni cle that our friend A. J. Gooch, of Teha ma county has captured a prize in the shape of a bride described as a “beautiful blonde.” The -wedding came off in San Francisco and was a very “fashionable affair. NEW DRESS. The San Francisco Spirit of the Times, the only sporting paper on this coast, has come out in a bran new dress, ard is now one of the neatest looking papers in the State. The new heading is a model of taste and beauty. GONE. 0. 11. P. Norcross died at his residence in Weaverville last week. Mr. N. was a superior and most estimable man, and we sincerely regret that his pilgrimage on earth has ended. Confirmation in Oakland. —The Oakland Transcript of the 17th inst. says : Archbishop Alemany administered the sacrament of confirmation at St. Mary’s Church, in this city, yesterday, to one hun dred and sixty persons, of whom fifteen were adults. The ceremony was very im pressive, and a feature which added not a little to the beautiful effect was the appear ence of ninety young ladies dressed in spotless white. The choir of the Mass was composed of six Sisters and twelve young ladies from the Academy of Onr Lady of tha Sacred Heart. The singing was magnificent. At three,?, m. the Arch bishop administered the sacred rite to twenty-three young ladies at the Convent. As usual on such occasions the music was grand and the exercises beautiful and im pressive. We may here state that of the fifteen adults confirmed in the morning, eight were converts, and the number em braced no less than half a dozen different nationalities. Entirely United.— There is no divis ion nor cause of division now in the Repub lican party at San Francisco. Never be fore, since 1860, has it been so harmonious, and never was it more enthusiastic, but it is cautions withal, and will use every ef fort for success. The interior may take courage. San Francisco will not be a drag on the party —but will be a help meet— With a proper ticket it will give the Re publican nominees a majority.—Bee. The Mississippi yet means to forsake Vicksburg, which so long vexed its passage to the sea, and natural causes promise ro make the channel which an army in vain attempted. The river threatens to sweep over the low levee opposite Vicksburg, and thus leave-the city inland. Time, which ia said to bring its ravages, could bring .none strap gar than tMs GUBERNATORIAL FLOP. The near approach of the season selected for political State and County Conventions induces the hungry corner politician to be more energetic and obtrusive, and, while the button-holers are busy on the curbs, the interested principals occupy little back rooms, receive their friends and partisans one by one, and each in bis turn is dis missed with an admonition as to profonnd sicrecy, and a request to see Mr. So-and so and “fix’’ him and secure his influence in certain quarters. With all the political manipulation which must necessarily be entrusted to all classes of politicians, it cannot be expected that all the tricks and schemes of the office-seeker can be kept a profound secret. For tbe past four or five days rumors have come thick and fast in regard to the Gubernatorial candidates before the great “Unterrified.” After the nsnal amount of knowing winks and side-talks we arc pret ty well satisfied that negotiations of a some what alarming character (in a political way) have been going on in earnest in which a prominent candidate for Governor has been through intimate friends, negotiating with a powerful corporation, with whom his relations have not been of the most loving character. In short, it is the street talk, and gener ally conceded to be the fact, that our pres ent Governor has, for the purposes of a selection, been consorting with the enemy, and having offered terms acceptable to the Railroad people, the latter will withdraw all opposition to Lis renomination or reelec tion. Some few persons have said that a change iu base of so great a magnitude would be impossibe, but a ready answer is made in all cases : that the same party had undergone a more radical change of heart in a much shorter space of time, and for a prize of a much smaller magnitude than the reelection to the Governorship. This trade involvesmanysmallerschemes, and even comes into the wrestle for county offices and Supervisors. It secures the retirement of one guber national candidate, who heretofore claimed the delegations! candidate, who heretofore claimed the delegation from this city in the Democratic Convention, and the tran sposition of others. This nice little piece of strategy has been managed, it is said, by the army of appointees so vividly des cribed by Congressman Johnson in his balcony speech as consuming $200,000 per annum of party pap. That the people who have the least to say in matters of this kind may be fully apprised of what is going on, we give these little items of political side-talk, that all will have a fair chance. From time to time we may continue our review of the position of the contest ants, showing how others affected by this change will be disposed of.—Alta. H. 11. H. is an experienced flopist. Hard on Assessors. —The State Board of Equalization have instituted a schedule, says the Chico Enterprise, that will make the respective Assessors a great deal of work, much more than of previous years.— The salaries of these officials arc not suffi cient to warrant a full and perfect assess ment, especially as the new duties impose an increase of labor and no inc ease of pay. We would suggest to the Boards of Su pervisors that an appropriation be made to so pay the Assessors tl at they may make such returns as will embrace all matters subject to taxation, by which the revenue may be increased. The instructions of the State Board with reference to the assessment of possessory rights may be proper enough, but so far as they relate to possessory claims upon lands of the United States, we doubt if the State has any power to enforce the collection of taxes. Most claimants upon such lands will pay a reasonable tax, as a matter of equity and to avoid trouble ; but it is cer tain that the State can convey no title to land of the United Stales, if she under takes to enforce the collection of taxes by their sale, nor can she divest a pre-emption -or homestead claimant of his right, under laws of the United States, upon lands which those laws have expressly exempted from State taxation. That old and well established paper, the Shasta Courier, has entered upon its 20th volume. That paper came into existence almost with the organisation of Shasta county, and its first carrier, in traversing the streets of Shasta, had to dodge around the new stumps from whence the pine trees had been taken to erect the pioneer business houses of the place.— Naturally enough tbe Courier has always been first, among newspapers, in the af fections of the majority of the people of old Shasta, and so it will ccntinue in the future.— Nev. Weekly Ex. Andy Johnson. —This personage has not been heard from for some time, and as he once occupied a distinguished position it is scarcely the thing to permit him to drop entirely into oblivion. We have as surances that he still lives, and that he is very sick of his association with tbe Demo cracy. He might well be, although bis own record has not been one of the most honorable character. The Baltimore American claims to have good authority for saying that he has gone back on tbe Democratic party, declares himself a sub scriber to the Republican faith and very much desires to be taken into the party in full standing. The ex-President can’t stand the Knklnz thugs.—[Sacramento Union. Kc Klcx in South Carolina.— A Tri bune Washington special telegraphs that inteligence is just received from South Caro lina, that on Sunday night a party of dis guised men rode to tbe boose of Robert Mil ton, an orderly Union man of Southern birth, living on a little farm nAr Old Shore, Ches terfield county, and called for him to come out. When be appeared at tbe door, accom panied by his wife and daughter, all three were immediately shot. Tbe wife was in stantly killed.

When disease has undermined the health, and the physical system has become pros trated, a stimulant that will not pnly strengthen, but remove the cnuse, should be immediately resorted to. Mental distress is also a fruitful source of the breaking down of the constitution, and the ravages of this enemy to health are truly alarming. For all such maladies Hostetler's Stomabb Bitters have been found unsurpassed. By acting directly upon the digestive organs, they remove the heavy, disagreeable feeling after eating, so ofter complained of by per sons of a delicate temperament. As soon as digestion is restored, the patient finds his strength increasing, and his general health improved. Thousands of persons certify that it may be relied on in all cases of weakness or ner vous debility attendant upon sedentary habits. The generality of Bitters are so disagreeable to the taste that they are ob jectionable to a weak stomach. This is not the case with Hostetler’s Bitters, which will be found mild and extremely pleasant. Balsamic plants, barks and roots contribute their restorative juices to render it soothing and strengthening. Its basis is the only pure stimulant which has ever been produced, containing no fusil oil, or any other deleter ious element. The most careful and skilful chemists have analyzed the Bitters, and pro nounce them harmless. This is scientific testimony ; but the testimony of the hund reds of thousand who have experienced the preventive and curative effects of the great vegetable tonic and alterativb of modern times is still mure conclusive. In Fever and Ague, Dyspepsia, Biliousness, Nervous Com plaints, Chronic Complaints and general debility it is as nearly infallible as anything in this fallible world can be.
