SATURDAY MORNING. MAY 6, 1871. AH YISG. Ah Yin", who killed one Chinaman and nearly settled a second one, at 'Whisky Creek, about eighteen months ago, and who has been under indictment for murder for the past year, was brought to trial last week, betore the District Court. The Dis trict Attorney and J. S. Follansbee Esq., appeared for the prosecution, and the Court appointed J. W. Brackett Esq. tc defend the accused. The trial occupied several days and resulted in a verdict by the jury, of “guilty of murder in the first degree.” The case was a difficult one to defend, and in the plea of insanity rested the only ehance to secure acquittal, but the evidence was deemed insufficient to show that the accused was of an unsound mind. The opinion expressed on every hand was that Mr. Brackett handled his side of the case with skill and tact, and that he is not only well versed in law, but is a fluent, logical, and persuasive speaker. After the rendering of the verdict, Judge Ilosborough passed sentence of death upon Ah Y T ing, and has set Friday June 2d as the day on which the execution shall take place COMMUNICATED. Id this District we will have a hard “road to travel” to secure a Republican Congressman, therefore precaution should be taken to select as a nominee one who can help himself. It is not only necessary that our nominee should be a staunch Re publican, and a man of decided ability and good standing with his fellow men, but it is absolutely necessary that he be capable of wielding an influence from the stump.— Of the three gentlemen aspiring to that position from this District, C. B. Denio has decidedly the advantage in that re spect. During the Lincoln and Grant cam paigns he “stumped” this State with a positive success. Indeed, so did his fame as a public speaker spread, that demands for his presence came to the State Central Committee from all sectionsof the State, and whenever he appeared the greatest entbu siasm in the good cause was aroused Denio is a man of unusual ability, an expe rienced Legislator, too —having served twelve years in the Illinois Legislature, previous to his coming to this State. All in all, Denio is most assuredly the man we should select to lead us in this District the approaching campaign Third District. BUY IN SHASTA. The country traders of this county, and northward point.*, who fail to come to Shas ta to purchase their goods, will find them selves out and injured. Our merchants are men of capital and determined to keep on hand large stocks and assortments of merchandise, and do now, and will contin ue to Wholesale and Retail goods cheaper than they can be purchased at any other place north of Sacramento. All we ask is an examination of the quality of the stocks offered, and a comparison of the prices asked here with those demanded elsewhere. Quick sales and small profits is the motto of our business men. NEW GOODS. C. Bush has returned from San Fran cisco and is now receiving his stock of new goods, to which attention is invited through the medium of an advertisement in another column. In addition to their "sual large stock of srroceries, the firm of Bush & Co. will hereafter keep a supply of Agricultual implements, Hardware &c. Parties wish ing good bargains will do well to give them a call, especially those desiring to purchase goods by wholesale, as they are determin ed to sell goods at lower rates than any house North of Sacramento.

At the Virginia City municipal election on Monday the Republicans elected the Chief of Police and three Aldermen.— Democrats elected the Mayor. Woodland, Yolo county, has heretofore been a Democratic stronghold, and the Democrats elected all the municipal offi cers at the first election held under the corporate authority. The second election took place on Monday last and the Repub licans elected the City Marshal, Assessor, and three out of five Trustees. Stockton went for Haight and has since gave the Democratic ticket a majority, but at the city election held on Monday, the united Republicans came to the scratch, and elected every man on their ticket from Mayor down to Alderman, the first official receiving a majority of over three hundred votes. We believe that all the municipal elec tions held in the State this year, without a single exception, have shown marked Re publican gains. The fact is the Republi can party is now uuited, and will go into the next campaign with confidence, enthusi asm, and a determination to win. “Tramp, tramp, the boys are marching!” The Coast Crop Prospects.—From Mr. Gresfdfd, who arrived on Monday from San Luis Obispo county, we are put in possession of some light in regard to the crops in a strip of country running from San Jose south to Santa Barbara He re ports that around San Juan, in Monterey county, and in the coast valleys of San Luis Obispo, good feed for stock exists and some prospects of a crop of grain. In Santa Barbara county feed is short and stock are dying. At Salinas Crossing feed has all been dried op, and that stream is lower than ever known bafore; at the low ,er end of Salinas plains, the grass is very short, and where 5,000 sheep could be kept in former years, 2,000 cannot be past ured now. Below San Jose herbage is all dried up, with an occasional wisp of dried grass only to be seen. Siock raisers in the section south ir the country mentioned are driving their cattlo Eastward across the Sierras in serch of pasture. His judg ment is that in a considerable portion of the Coast region there will be nothing whatever produced this season. He draws a picture of desolation that is fearful to dwell upon. —Vallejo Chronicle. Congressional.—The Republican Congressional Convention of the Third Cal ifornia District is to be held June 21st.— The object in setting it thus early was to hold it before the State Convention, in order that there might be no trading,, and for the purpose of naming the strongest candidate. Evidently the State Conven tion will not be held until July, for experi ence teaches that “a short and lively cam paign” is always the most efficient. The Vallejo Recorder on this subject says : “It is thought best to have the several Congressional candidates make there fight before the people and secure their dele gates respectively without reference to State and local issues. The people demand a man who will best represent them in Congress—one who will present their claims as citizens demanding equal protection with others owing allegiance to our common O C fla". This representative should be chos en by the free suffrage of the people, be cause they believe he will best represent them in Congress. This cannot be if a candidate is forced upon them through State and county issues.” FOR LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR. The Sacramento Daily Record of April 20th thus speaks of Hon J. N. Chappell: “Senator J. N. Chappell, of Shasta county, passed through the city yesterday afternoon, en route from San Francisco to his home in Shasta Senator Chappell’s name is favorably mentioned in connection with the Republican nominaton for Lieu tenant Governor at the coming election and we learn that his claims will be strong ly urged by the northern counties of the State. Senator Chappell has represented his county in the Legislature during the past twelve years, a sure teat of merit—is a staunch Republican and if nominated and elected will do honor to the office.” While this favorable mention, and evi dence of friendship toward our Senator, cannot be otherwise than highly gratifying to him, yet we understand that he is not in the field as an aspirant for any official position. Ignorance. —lgnorance is not disposed to give any countenance whatever to new fangled notions, having a religious faith in all that has been, its face always has been and ever will be, turned toward the setting sun of the past. With this idea, it adopts no new notions, scorns new habits, and accepts nothing as entitled to respect or confidence till time has rendered the objects of its consideration both old and popular. It, as of old, builds monuments to the prophets which its bigoted prototypes have stoned and persecuted in their living counterparts. Ignorance sits in the shad ow of the past- It shuns the light of the present. It clings to the skirts of those customs within the range of the limited experience. It thinks not what may be, but yawning, remembers what has been.— Pride is increased by ignorance; those who assume the most know the least. SEW GOODS. J. N. Chappelle has got his furniture and glasware store in running order and is now prepared to supply customers with anything needed in his line. His adver tisement containing full particulars, will appear next week. I A SOLEMN OLD JOKER. Judge W iuans, who is ordinarily grave as a grave stone, kept the House laughing yesterday, while attempting to get the Speaker’s eye, and so obtain the floor. “Mr. Speaker,” cried the Judge, to Mr. Dawes, who was in the chair. Speaker—The gentleman is not in order. A\ inans—l’d like to he told. Speaker, how you know that before I say what 1 want. [Laughter.] Speaker—The gentleman will take his seat. W inans—ls there anything in the rules that requires me to be seated before I have said a word ? Speaker—The gentleman is not in order, and the Speaker cannot proceed with the business until order is restored. Winans—Would it be strainings point of order for me to remain standing until it is in ordered for me to address the Chair. [Loud laughter. A voice from the House, “Mr. Speaker !” Mr. Speaker !”] Speaker—Gentlemen will resume their seats. Cox—Does that include the gentleman from Ohio ? Speaker—The Speaker has not yet re cognized the gentleman from Ohio. Winans—l thought as much. I have here, Mr. Speaker, a pair of spectacles of fine magnifying power. Shall I lend them to the Chair, so that I may be seen ? [Roars of laughter all over the House.] Speaker—The gentleman is out of order. Winans—l rise to a point of order. Speaker—The gentleman from Ohio will please state his point. Winans—That a motion to adjourn is always in order. [Great Laughter.] Speaker—Does the gentleman from Ohio move to adjourn ? Winans—That was my wish when the Speaker invited me to be seated. [Loud Laughter.] Speaker—Does the gentleman from Ohio move to adjourn ? Winans—No; I’ve got over my hurry. And so the Judge sat down with im mense gravity, and the House fairly con vulsed.—Cincinnati Commercial. AKu Kmx Excursion in Ken tucky.—The Ku Klux of Wolfe county, after a retirement of several weeks, mus tered in force on Saturday night, and went bravely out on a whipping excursion. They visited a number of families, and before morning these cowardly hounds had stripped and whipped eleven white persons, six of whom were women. They also stole from a stable in Campion a hor.-e of James J. Conway, the special bailiff of General Murray, and rode him all night, generously returned him with a note at tached to his mane, informing Mr. Conway that the Klan bad taken his case under consideration, and voted on the disposition they should make of him. The resolution to hang him was lost by one paltry vote, heuce the Klan felt obliged to inform the bailiff that “unless he quit his d d radical business they would hang him soon, any way.” Possibly some member of the Legislature has been added to the ranks of these calico-gowned heroes, and thus stimulated them to their noble efforts iin whipping white men and women. It would be difficult to enumerate the mini ber of lashes these cowardly scoundrels arc entitled to if they should be caught and sentenced to this popular mode of correc tion —Louisville Commercial. Courting in Church.— A young gen tleman happened to sit at church in the pew adjoining one in which sat a young lady, for whom he conceived a sudden and violent passion, felt desirsus of entering into courtship on the spot, but the place not being suitable for a formal declaration, the exigency suggested the following plan: He politely handed his neighbor a Bible, open, with a pin stuck in the following verse; Second Epistle of John, verse7th, “And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I write a new commandment unto you, but which we had from the be ginning, that we love one another.” She returned it with the following : “Second chapter of Ruth, 10th verse, “Then she fell on her face and bowed her head to the gronnd, and said unto him, why have j grace in thine eyes, that thou shonldst take notice of me, seeing that I am stran ger ?” He returned the book pointing to the 12th verse of third Epistle of John, “Having many things to write with paper and ink, but I trust to come unto you and to speak face to face.” From the above in terview the marriage took place the follow ing week. Too Soon. —A Sacramento letter, under date of April 9th, and published in the Calaveras Chronicle, says: “Politically; but little is doing, apparently, although the frequent confabs going on in the private office of the Secretary of State would lead one to suppose that the Haight- Nichols combination is leaving not a stone unturned to further its ends. The talk on Governor seems to have simmered down within the last ten days, there being a general unanimity in the opinion that the question was sprung rather too soon. The prominent candidates remain the same as mentioned in my last. Occasionally lead ing Democrats will arrive in town, inter view the Secretary of State for a day or two and then depart, but of course these movements can have no connection with the coming campaign ; oh, no. The Re publicans are quiescent, there being a sort of tacit understanding that the party will remain united, believing that as all the candidates mentioned are good men, there is no earthly occasion for a disruption in the ranks.” His Reason. —The San Francisco Figa ro says; “Why do you oppose the giving of the ballot to women (” asked a lady the the other evening of a confirmed bachelor. “Excuse me, madam,” replied he, “but I have not sufficient confidence in their ca pacity to conduct Government affairs.”— “What evidence of their mental inferiority to mankind can you advance ?” queried the lady. “A simple fact is enough to satisfy my mind, and that is the frightful way in which they do up their back hair.” BEAR IN MIND. When disease has undermined the health, and the physical system has become pros trated, a stimulant that will not only strengthen, but remove the cause, should be immediately resorted to. Mental d stress 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 Hosteller’s Stomach Bitters have been found unsurpassed. By acting directly upon the digestive organs, they remove the heavy, disagreeable feeling after eating, so offer 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 Tons debility attendant upon sedentary habits. The generality of Bitters are so disagreeable to the taste that they are oh jectionable to a weak stomach. This is not the case with Hostetler’s Bitters, which will he 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 vegetaiile tonic and alterative of modern times is still more 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. April. 1 The Ca ifornia and Oregon Stage Compa ny are no\v about ready to change to the Sacramento river route, but are waiting for orders from Washington granting that priv ilege.
