About three year ago a very remark able man died in Grass Yallcy, John R. Ridge son of the celebrated Cherokee Chief. At the commencement of the late war in 1861, Mr. Ridge, in conjunction with the writer, was employed in the edi torial departments of the San Francisco Evening Journal and there wrote and pub lished some of the most radical Union warar ticlesof that day. It was then supposed that Ross, Chief of the Chcrokces, would fake the side of the South ; in that case, his hereditary foe, John R. Ridge, above mentioned, had determined to raise a party of bordermen in California, proceed across the plains, helping themselves to horses and supplies in the Mormon country, and coming in unexpectedly on the west side of the Cherokee teritory. The lloss-Cher okces being presumed rebels, Ridge ex pected to obtain assistance form the United States government, and as the domain was worth several millions, he also hoped to obtain funds of capitalists in New York. Those were his bold plans, laid one day while sitting in the gallery of Hayes’s Pavilion, overlooking the frivolities of a German festival, in May, 1861. Rut John Ross took the other side, and all Ridge’s fine plans came to naught. The light of Unionism went out in his wig wam, giving place to the Copperhead Jack O’Uantern. “John Ross, his father’s mortal foe, Ross the usurper, Ross the Chief of his father’s slayers,’’ having espoused the Union cause, there was no room for him in the lodge, and soon after he was found amoung the fiercest revilers at Mr. Lincoln’s administration. That, and nothing else made him a copperhead. During that conversation at Hayes’ Park, Mr. Ridge, having became some what animated with wine and the recollec tion of his father’s tragic death, we learn ed something of his history, which it will now do no harm to relate. Major Ridge, the elder, was seized, dragged from his house and murdered in the night by thirty six of the hostile party of his nation. He was cut and stabbed all to pieces before the door. His son John R. Ridge, then a small boy, saw tl c tragi dy from his bed, crept through a window, escaped anil hid in the woods. He knew their faces, and. Indian-like, treasured up his vengeance until the age and vigor of young manhood. Then the assassins began to diminish, one by one until of the thirty six, only four remained in 1871. Bomc were slain in altercations peculiar to the Rorder, others found dead by the wayside, and others dis appeared, nobody knew how and where. Whether Ridge killed them, we don’t pre tend to say, but nevertheless, have a very well founded opinion in their taking-off. A few years ago, a party of Cherokees were mining on Tr nity river, and coming into Weaverville, got on a spree, when one of them publiclc boasted that he “had stabbed old Major Ridge thirteen times !” A bystander from Arkansas telegraphed to John R. Ridge, who was then editing a paper in Marysville. The editorial “lead er” was broken off in the middle; the pen was flung down ; a stage passage was se cured, and Ridge had urgent business in Weaverville. Meanwhile, the intended object got wind of it, and lost no time in getting out of Trinity county, where be did not return. A sister of Mr. Ridge is married to Judge Paschal, of Galveston, Texas. The writer of this recollects her well, as a beau tiful and accomplished lady. Her com plexion was darker than her brother’s, and that was made the subject of malicious remark by Judge Paschal's enemies, but never, at their peril publicly. Some of the Galveston ladies also put on airs about it, probably doing so through enviousness of the beautiful and dashing Cherokee belle It was commonly related that before her marrriage Miss Ridge had disguised her self in men’s attire, pursued and slain sev eral of her father’s assassins. On one oc casion, it was said and believed, that the chivalric girl, mounted a horse and rode forty miles, alone in the night, slew one of the assassins, sprang upon ber fleet steed and escaped to Texas, where she became acquainted with and married the distin guished Judge Paschal, and where she is still residing, we believe. Mr. Ridge went back to the East some four years ago, hoping to recover his pos sessions, but was unsuccessful. We never saw him afterwards, but have understood that the results of disappointment shorten ed his life. He was a writer of very great ability, and has left several memorable poems, one cf which, an “Ode to Mount Shasta,” we have always considered one of the sublimest ever produced in this paxt of the country. —Oakland News. Mr. Seward in India. —Mr Seward arrived in India in the early part of last month, and was everywhere received as an honored guest. Upon reaching Calcut ta, he was invited to reside in the. Gov ernment House, and was made the "nest 1 of the Viceroy, and the Earl of Mayo A “BLAWSTKD UKUMBEK,” From the Jacksonville Time. Californians have so often made them selves merry over the goucheries of “Ore gou Flats,” that most of the denizens of that State imagine the term Oregonian, to mean a fool. One of these gentlemen made his appearance here this week, and soon gave the astonished citizens of this village to understand that he was a super ior sort of a somebody, and that Oregon ians were “blawsted bawbarians, ye know.” This individual’s name is Thompson, and he spells it with a “p.” He is a drummer for a ißan Francisco cutlery and meer schaum pipe firm and puts on more airs than he could if he were the firm itself. On the road he desired one of the drivers to drive slowly, as the “blawsted woads made him demnition soah.” The disgust of that driver and his reply can be imagin ed. At one of the stations this fastidious Thompson enquired for a napkin, as he was “not in the—aw—habit, ye know, of dining—aw—without a napkin ” Where upon the obliging landlord went out and after a brief consultation with his wife, she put down the baby, and procured for the traveler a three cornered article of in fantine wear, sometimes denominated a napkin. Then—well it’s no use. Homer described the wrath of Achilles, but twenty Homers could not described the dire in dignation of that disgusted cockney. He cussed the country from Maine to Texas, aud from the Atlantic to the Pacific, by States, Counties, Townships, Sections and subdivisions. On arriving in town, he soon became conspicuous as a champion talkist; he talked to everybody until the people fled from him as if from a pestilence, lie talked about everything and everybody, and when he could not find any adult vic tims, he cornered a little boy in the Hotel and gravely entered into a theological dis cussion with him. So much talking ne cessarily produced thirst, and our friend prtronized the various saloons so, that upon the approach of night he thought he would astonish the denizens by his accom plishment in the saltatory art, as a kind of supplementary entertainment to those he had been giving through the day; so he “danced the dance that David danced,” and several other dances which we never saw, nor heard of before, accompanying the same with no other music but his mel liflous voice. About this time a citizen entered, who had been paying his devotions to the god, Bacchus, and our Thompson immediately seized upon him as a fit sub ject upon which to exercise his fund of jokes. He made him dance, he made him sing, he made him set down and arise again; he informed him that by one blow he could squelch the citizen utterly; gave him minute particulars of the manner in which he could use him up; called him opprobrious names, until the other party thought the thing was getting too monot onous, whereupon he gently drew a tre mendous Arkansas toothpick, and held the same between his knees. Thompson (with a p) gav'e one startled look at the carving knife, and went- He “did not stand on the order of his going, but went at once.” He seemed to have urgent business in another portion of town just then, and left at a rate of speed which indicated that he feared to be too late at the appointment. He took the middle of the street, and be fore the gravel his heels threw up in the air, had ceased falling on the roof of Helm’s saloon, he had reached the U. S. Hotel!! A belated citizen caught a glimpse of him as he passed, and thought it was the shadow of some swift and large bird which the moon had cast upon the street. Thompson (with a p) had vanished before the astonished spectator could recover his senses. Our sporting men say the time made by Thompson is unequalled, and there is a standing offer entered on the records of the Jackson County Agricultural Society to enter Thompson (with a p) under the name of “Skedaddle,” against any horse, mare, gelding, mule or jackass in the known world or China, Thompson and the other animal to go as they please —for a thousand dollars a mile. Or, they offer to match “Skedaddle” against time, for any sum from fifty cents up to §150,- 000; provided, however, that Kendrick starts him with his butcher knife. The race to come off over the Rybee track next month. A Working Wuhan. —A correspondent of the Rural Press, writing from Amador County, pens the following notice of a woman arrested for wearing men’s clothes ; ‘ M me. Marie Suize is the proprietress of a 300 acre tract of land, situated six miles east of Jackson, and is cultivating some 3D,- DOO vines, and manufacturing about 12,000 gallons of wine and 000 gallons of brandy annually. With a view to silk raising she is cultivating 3,000 mulberry trees. At this writing there are on hand at this ranch some 18,000 gallons of wine, from one to five years old. It is kept in twenty f.ur 800-gallon casks, manufactured from a spe cies of black live oak, cut, sawn and manu factured upon the farm. Two large 3,000 gallon casks are used for making red wine Five men are regularly employed.” “What do you do for a living?” asked a farmer near Poughkeepsie of a.sturdy vagabond who came begging at his house. “Well, nothing much except travelling 9iound,” said the fellow. ou look as though you were good at that,” responded the farmer. “Well, yes, lam pretty good at travelling.” “Then,” said the fanner opening the door, “let’s sec you travel.’ NUMBER 8. A VERMONT MAN KILLED BY THE KUKLUX IN FLORIDA. On Friday morning, says the Rutland, Vt. Herald, of April 10th, it was our painful duty to announce the assassination of our friend John Q. Dickinson by the Kuklux Klan, at Marianna, Florida, on Monday lasi. On Saturday another tele gram was received from N. J. Furman, giving more definite particulars in refer ence to the sad event. The dispatch read as follows: Taliahasser, Fla., April 7th, John Q. Dickinson is dead. lie was instantly killed by an assasin. He fell near his house, while returning from his office at 9 o’clock. His body will receive a public funeral in Jacksonville, Florida, on Tuesday next. N. J. Furman. A telegram was sent on Sunday morn ing to have the remains forwarded to his father at Henson. His father, Isaac Dick inson, and bis mother arc both living at Henson, and are greatly weighed down by this heavy bereavement which takes from them a much beloved son, and they desire that his body shall rest with his kindred among his native hills. Diokinson’s life has been threatened before, and he would have undoubtedly been made a victim of Southern hatred some two years since, but for illness. One evening, Dickinson, Dr. Finlayson and Furman had an engagement to attend the theater together. Dickinson was taken suddenly ill, and was unable to accompany them. They started without him, and before reaching the theater Dr. Finlayson was shot dead upon the street. Furman was taken the next day to the boundary line of the county, and told to leave and never enter the county again. Hoth were respectable citizens, enterprising gentle men, and no offense was alleged but that they were Republicans. No attempt was made to ferret out or punish the wretch that committed the dastardly outrage. At the time, Dickinson wrote for the Herald a very feeling tribute to the memory of his friend, and a vivid description of his tragic death, and in condemnation of these wan ton outrages upon inoffensive citizens for political opinion. About the same time, John Q. Dickinson wrote the following words which, now he has fallen to fill a grave for opinion’s sake, are a sacred legacy, and should be inscribed in endur ing letters on his tombstone: “I wish to put on record the fact that my political action in this State has been up right and honorable, and Ido not regret a single step that I have taken, and that while many citizens of this county have a bitter political hate for me, 1 believe and know that not one of them en tertains a personal dislike oi want of respect for me, and 1 have no ambition to fill a more honorable grave than that of a man who falls for the sake of opinion or conduct that he knows is right, even though everybody else thinks it wrong.” This is the crowning act of infamy of this nefarious gang. Dickinson was the last leading Republican in a county in which sixty Republicans have been killed in two years, tor no other offense than being a Republican and an office-holder. Local Elections.—lt may be deemed somewhat significant that in the Spring elections in California the Republicans have been almost uniformly sucessful. In San Jose, Marysville, Stockton, Oakland, Suisuu, Flacerville, Grass Valley, Wood land, Sacramento and in nearly every city or town in which an election has been held lately the Republican candidates, or a majority of them have been chosen. \\ hy is this? Why have they won in Grass Valley, Woodland, San Jose, etc., which have been Democratic strongholds? Be cause they were united ! Because there was nothing to divide them I Because they made acceptable nominations and had no Senatorial (juestion to separate, or demago gues to divide them I—[Bee. Our Astor. —A San Francisco journal states that California has proved a true F;1 Dorado to cx-Gov. Lc’.and Standford.

Among his possessions are named several first-class hotels, the Facific Railway, aline of steamers, three lines of coaches, 13 gold mines, 19 factories, and 45 farms. He is called the Astor of San Francisco. Thusspcaketh the New York Tribune.
