SATURDAY MORNING. JUNE 24. 1871 HOV.joilN M. COGHLAN. The Republican Congressional Conven tion held-in-Marysville pursuance the call . of the District Committee;- have'nominated JJeo, Jphn AI. Cbghlaoj of Solano, as the Congressional candidate of the Republican party in the third district. Mr. Coghlan is a" young lawyer, of fine oratorical powers, . earnest -in the advocacy of Republican principles, and is a gentleman who will re fleet-honor on our State as one of its repre sentatives in the National Legislature.— He is a gentleman of pleasing address and ■ unbounded personal popularity, as is evi denced from the fact that he pot only has secured the Solano delegation in his favor, but carried the primaries in every precinct of that county, including Vallejo, the res idence ot Hon. C. B- Denio, bis competi tor for the endorsement ot Solano county. Mr. Coghlan served in the lower branch of the Legislature as the representative of Napa county, through the session of 65- 6, and his course proved so acceptable to his constituents that he was, in 1867, nomina ted at the Union candidate for the Senate from the district composed of the counties of Naps, Lake and Mendocino. In the .general demoralization which caused the defeat of the Republicans in that discs irons campaign, the district gave Haight • between seven and eight hundred majority, and, although Mr. Coghlan ran far ahead of his ticket bo was beaten by a small ma jority. We can congratulate the Republicans of the Third District that so able and popular a standard-bearer has been selected. The District in close—it requires our best man to win and we have selected hint. With Newton Booth and John M. Coghlan to lead the Republican hosts, we can go into the contest, confident that not only our State but the Third Congressional District will be redeemed .from Democratic rule. PROCEEDINGS OF THE DEMO CRATIC CONVENTION. Oar reporter furnishes us with the fol lowing condensed proceeding of the Demo cratic County Convention which are not given in the official report handed to us for publication: “The convention effected a permanent organization by electing Van Schaick chair man and Bedford Secretary. According to'report of Committee, 52 delegates, (in cluding proxies) were entitled to vote. After the report of all the Committees, nominations were declared in order. As semblyman, County Judge, Sheriff, Clerk and District Attorney, were nominated by acclamation. For Assessor, W. W. Elmore, and C. -Osborn were proposed. Conven tion took a recess and reassembled. On vote being taken the count stood, Elmore 12, Osborn 40. The Treasurer was nomi nated by acclamation. For Administrator, D. Lynch and J. Shuler proposed and the ballot stood, Lynch 12, Schuler 40. The Surveyor and Superintendent were nomina ted by acclamation. For Delegates to State Convention J. Pryor, B. S, Lathrop, J. N. Logan, J. Simpson, B. Gartland and D. C Johnson were proposed—4 to bo elected. On ballot being taken, Simpson tallied 44, I ogan 44, Pryor 36, B. S. Lathrop 31, B. Gartland 21, and D. C Johnson 24. The first four was declared elected.” LET JUSTICE DC DONE. The conviction of Dougherty, who mur dered Miss Dennison, at Wheatland, and the summary vengeance which followed the fiendish crime of “ Austrian George,” mufderer of Miss McDaniel, of Cherokee Flat, are circumstances well calculated to meet tho approval of the people ot this State. If there is any right which should be held sacred to woman, it is the right to choose freely among men in the selection of a husband. If a woman must be influ enced in (hat choice by the dread of assas sination, her dearest right becomes of no value to her. We trust that in the case of Dougherty, the law will be enforced in its utmost rigor. ST. JOHN’S DAY. The Masonic Fraternity of this, and al so of Trinity county will celebrate the day of St. John the Baptist by a social re union, at which singing, tableaux, supper and a dance will be the main features.— As the 24th of June falls on Saturday this year, the re-anion will be held on the evening of the 23d- TBE PRESIDENT COMING. President Grant will start for California on a tour .of observation, on the 13th of August He will probably visit Oregon also. - - ADMITTED. At the June term of the District Court, M. 8. Babcock was admitted to practice as an attorney at law. Mr. B. is a man of ability and will undoubtedly meet with snccaas in his profession. See bis card. REPUBLICAN VICTORY. At the Portland, Oregon, Municipal election held this, week the Republicans elected all the Coancilmen, the-Wayor and Police Judge, making a clean sweep. Tbe city has been XJemoe ratio. B. W. ADIIRs WiU be as independent Candi date foe &«admaetee «T District No. 8, THE UNION REPUBLICAN COUN'TV TICKET. The ticket nominated by the Union Convention last week seems to meet the approbation of Republicans universally, and independent-voters generally, and with proper industry and care on the part of the nominees, all will be well in September.— The tide of public opinion is setting strong ly in favor of the Republican party this year, and ezperieneed California politicians instinctively feel that the next .turn of the wheel will bring defeat to the Democrafcy Our nominee lor the Assembly, County Judge, Sheriff, and Treasurer, are well known to the majority of the people of the County and need no special introduction. The beat recommendation they can have, is the fact that they have been tried in offi cial position in the past, and proved them selves hanest, competent, and accommoda tingservautsof the people,and consequently they can be safely trusted in the future.— The nominee for Clerk, District Attorney, Assessor, and Administrator, ar» untried in official experience, but their qualifica tions for the respective positions for which ' they were nominated is conceded by all who know them, and there is no doubt but that they will acquit themselves to the satisfaction of the people in the event of their election. Dr. Guptill, of Millville, is particularly fitted for the correct dis charge of the duties of Clerk, aod is a man of nnblemlished character, possessing the confidence and esteem of all who know him intimately. Brackett, candidate for Dis trict Attorney has been a resident of this county three yeare, is a well-read lawyer, and the interests of the county, will not suffer if confided to his g’lardianship. The candidate for Assessor, James Leary, of Spring Creek, is a native of Lynn, Mass., a resident of this county for years, and from his known intelligence and good sense we are confident that if elected, he will make a first rate officer, and one that will give general satisfaction to the tax payers of the county. Wilhelm, for Administrator is a nat've of Germany, an old resident, and fully competent to discharge the duties of the position to which he aspires. The conduct of the unsuccessful candi dates for nominations, is worthy of special praise, and entitles them to the favorable remembrance of the members of the party. Their prompt acquiescence in the verdict of the Convention, and the cheerful sup port they are yielding to the ticket, shows them to be men of honor, and folly capa ble of rising above self-interest when the good of the party is concerned. Their course is wise; the defeated of to day may be the victors to-morrow. STATE CONVENTION. The Democratic State Convention made the following nominations this week : Gov ernor, Henry H. Haight; Lieutenant- Governor, Edward J. Lewis : Judges of Supreme Court, Jackson Temple and ScWen S. Wright; Secretary of State, W. B. C- Brown; for Controller, B. O. DeWitt; for Treasurer, F. Coronel; for Surveyor, W. B Boust; for Superintcdenf O. P. Fitzgerald ; for Attorney General, Hamiltor; State Printer, Barry; Clerk Supreme Court, L- Lasphere; Harbor Comimissioner, L. Freidlander. Pelham’s name was not brought before the Covention. LIBERAL Governor Haight liberality is said to be equal to Artemas Ward’s patriotism. The latter was willing to sacrifice the whole of bis first wife’s relations in the war for the Union. His Excellency is equally ready to launch out the Contingent Fund of the State to erect monuments as a testimonial to his deceased friends. We have received ' the first number of the ElDorado County Republican, pub lished at Placerville. As its name indi cate it will be devoted to Republican prin ciples. It is of a good size, is neatly print ed, and bids fair to be just such a news paper as the Republicans of El Dorado County need. CIRCUS. The New York Circus will perform at Trinity Centre June 30th, at Weaverville July Ist, at French Gulch the 2d, at hasta the 3d. and at Red Bluff on the 4th. This show is said to be a good one, and the performance well worth the price of admission. LECTURE. Mrs. C. F Young will lecture at the Union Church on this (.Saturday) evening. Tbe public are cordially invited to attend. RETURNED. Mr. Chas. Camden and family returned to the Tower House, from below, this week. UNION REPUBLICAN COUNTY CON. VENfIUN.
