BALTIMORE.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1858.
If Mr SIVANX will roundly assert his OAvn pro.
•tions i IJ denounce all those AVIIO contradict
them as actuated solely by a desire to "break
"doAvn the City Government," and cast odium
~t , n our whole people, he has no cause of coni-
I-iiiit against those AVIIO may choose, in their turn,
to impeach his motives, or dispute his statements.
<<lll-11 has been his course from the first moment
that injured men presumed to impute a fault to liis
administration, down to the evening when he ac
cepted a re-nomination as a candidate for the
MAYORALTY. If the "City Government" has a
right to anathematize, surely the citizens to Avhom
it is responsible, may freely ,speak out too. On
behalf of a portion of that body Ave propose, with
out touching upon the MAYOR'S motives, to again
address ourselves to some of his averments.
He said in his address to the Convention which
nominated him:-.
"I have exerted the whole power of the city govern
ment to put down lawlessness arid to hold in check the in
creasing immorality of the times."
This hits been asserted bv himself, and reiterated
by his defenders so often, that some persons, who
have not examined the facts, might be content to
believe that the MAYOR is in no way rcsjionsible
for existing evils, but that the crime and lawless_
ness committed in our midst are really, as he con.
tends, "referable to the prevailing epidemic of the
times." Let us glance at the opportunities
which were afforded him "to put doivn laevless.
ness," and see Avhether they have been neglected ?
Let us iook at his power to "check the increasing
immorality," and say whether it has been
abused? 111 reply to various facts alleged by
those who complain of his admiuistration, his
friends have always framed their pleas upon the
strict letter of the law. It is Avell to remind them
that in questions of government, there are other
essential elements of grave consideration. Mr.
BCRKE, in one of his noble letters, lias said:—
"Manners are of more importance than laivs. Up
"011 them, in great measure, laws depend. The
"law touches tis but here and there, and noiv
"and then. Manners arc Avhat vex or soothe,
"corrupt or purify, exalt or debase, barbarize or
"refine us, by a constant, steady, uniform, insen
sible operation, like that of the air Ave breathe in.
"They giA-e their Avliole form and color to our
"lives. According to their quality, they aid
"morals, they supply them, or they totally dc
"stroy them."
As it is with manners, so is it with the
class of morals which exist beside the law, but
not necessarily dependant thereupon. So is it
with the customs and mental habits which lead
us to contemn or reA-erence the law, and by their
"insensible operation" vivify or render nugatory
its provisions. Amid a demoralized people, Jus
tice Avalks nnhonored, and labors to little profit.
Nor is it less true that the latvs become worthless
or valuable lo citizens according to the unfairness
or integrity with which they are administered.
The animus of the judge will be sometimes weighed
with or against the letter of the judgment. Thus
it is that in well regulated societies the effect
which the law produces is often owing less to the
force with which it strikes down an offender, than
to the spirit which animates the blow—less to
the severity of its sentences than to the certainty
and uncompromising honesty with which they are |
pronounced.
They ivho, mindful of high duty, wield author
ity with impartial and unfaltering hands, prevent
the crimes which magistrates of loiver tone and !
looser consciences behold continually springing up '
around them, and vainly strive, too late, to check i
by punishment. The latter unfortunate condition i
is ours, and in discussing it, AA-e now Avaive all j
criticisms 0:1 the letter of the law, for it is chiefly i
towards Mr. SWANN'S total violation of its spirit j
that we would direct attention. AVe alluded i
some days since to the removal of the "polls of j
"various wards from central positions to their j
"extreme outskirts," where, for evident partisan !
purposes, they Avere "placed in juxtaposition to i
"those of other wards," and straightway the cliam. !
pions of the MAYOR refer to the statutes which
confide the duty of locating the polls to the judges ,
of election. He shelters himself behind the dis- !
cretion exercised by judges whom lie himself se- j
lected. Is it no concern of his if they commit a |
Avrong by a dishonest exercise of that discretion? i
Or if they failed to exercise it honestly or prostitu- j
ted it to most uufair purposes, on one occasion, j
was it not for him to take care that his appointees
at the next election should be men AVIIO were dis
creet enough to do their sworn duty to a people,
rather than obey the behests of any party? Twice
Avitliin a feAv Aveelts was power thus abused, and in
precisely the same way, and AVC are quietly assured
that he AVIIO as often nominated these unfit judges J
is not to lie held chargeable Avith their acts.
The BALTIMORE and OHIO RAILROAD, as Ave also |
showed, Avas in imminent danger of destruction, |
and the action of the "City Government" was j
such, as in our deliberate judgment, amounted to ]
an invitation to the rioters to go beyond the city j
limits, and there be lawless at their leisure. Sup
pose it to be true that the MAYOR had no jurisdiction
beyond those boundaries, was it necessary to in
form an infuriated mob of the extent of his savay,
and to notify them of the precise point beyond
which they Avere safe from his interference? A
melancholy example of this impotent method of
performing duty is furnished from the sad history
> of the late Stuten Island mob. The marines were
sent down to guard the quarantine establishment,
and the incendiaries were awed and powerless,
until the commanding officer gave notice of his in
tention to protect nothing but the property of the
I SITED STATES. That night, arson, riot and disorder
renewed their hideous orgies. We knoiv, happily,
of no similar instances in which officers have thus
executed the trusts delegated to them by an order
loving community, unless perhaps where the repre
sentative of the Public Prosecutor has been knoAvn |
to instruct a desperado in what cases lie might
knock down the policeman who, having failed to
discover the flaiv in the warrant under Avliieh he
acted, Avas attempting, in good faith, to effect an
arrest.
Again, it is said, the police are weary of arrest
ing criminals who are discharged immediately by
those shameless Magistrates who habitually accept
of what is familiarly termed straw-bail, and no one
has more strenuously urged this complaint than
the MAYOR himself, it jg iflg duty to appoint the
Magistrates who sit in judgment at the Station '
Houses, and he has full authority to order the 1
offenders there for hearing. If there is one honest j
Justice in this city, would it not seem to be more ,
rational to complain less of those who are faithless, 1
and send all cases before the upright man? If i !
there are any sn , h .Hlinquents, who have | |
been appointed by the Mayor, would not plain . i
men natural,} expert to see them driven from the I '
tribunals they dishonor, before the Chief Magis- i i
trate, who placed them there and is responsible for 1
their retention, begins to bewail the misfeasance
that no act of Ins own discourages!
Still another asseveration w'e^ ust cxtract from ]
, the MAYOR S address. He says of his Police : 1
"Inefficient men hai-c been unnnintnl ; - • . i
but I deny that inefficient or had ni ,, - ODIC instances; jt
knowingly appointed, either by the AT V ? V" been i 1
* self." Marshal or ray- g
If we are bound to accept this statement and I
. conclude that those notorious characters whose *
misdeeds are familiar to our citizens and arc re- \
corded in the open annals of our Criminal Court 1
were unknown as such to the MARSHAL and the '
MAYOR, we have only to regret the slight investi- 0
gation that preceded the rewards which were ®
conferred upon these outlaws. But were the bad f
mc-n removed, when decent people exclaimed 1 *
'■ against the mischievous mistake; or did even the ! 1
efficient men AA-aik always in the path of duty? r
Let the history of the last election answer Let {
the insults that Avere heaped upon the voters of ! 1
that day, and the blows and wounds that then j 1
assailed them testify indisputable f ile ts. Out of t
the numberless policemen ivho stood by, careless j 1
spectators of the ivrongs done—treacherous guar- „
dians of the rights that were invaded— Ave should i
, like to hear hoiv many were rebuked or punished. ! c
►Some persons may believe that no single instance ! t
came to the knowledge of the MAYOR or MARSHAL, j c
There are those, doubtless, who can believe any- j
thing. ! <
Such are some of the facts leading us to the '
conviction that so far from having done aught to !
check immorality, the whole tone and spirit of j I
Mr. SAVANN'S admiuistration have afforded it direct ' j
encouragement. This is the issue in which we join, ,
and not those fictitious ones ivhich he has framed for /
the purpose of triumphantly refuting. Of these latter
we shall speak hereafter. His opponents do noAv
insist that the relations Avhich he has suffered to j
exist between himself as MAYOR and unworthy ]
and inefficient subordinates, and the tardiness ! ,
with which he has acted on, or admitted the exist- J
ence of well founded complaints, are among the ,
• causes why "lawlessness and vice" have here t
groivn to bo "the epidemic of the times." He has
not sedulously sought to purify the foul atmos- f
pbere in which the pestilence has been nourished n
. and has attained its swift development. They do '
1 that if he has permitted powers to be j
more than once misused by men of his own choos
ing, he lnts no reason to suppose lie has strength
ened in this community a respect for authority.
If he lias at any time advanced and rewarded the
: vicious and the vile, lie lias 110 right to plume
1 himself on having taught a moral lesson to the
I companions of their evil courses. If lie has tole
l rated a scandalous neglect of duty by his officers
upon one day, he cannot expect from them a vig
orous and impartial exercise of it on every other.
\ If he has been more solicitous to weigh the provo-
I cations of a mob, than to guard against the good
I citizens whom it outraged, or lias paused to con
| sider liis own popularity or dignity, while the
j great interests of society were threatened, he can
. not hope that he has inculcated a wholesome
terror of the law, or established among the people
a firm reliance on its protection. It was long
j since written that "no man can serve two mas
; ters."
i The following advertisement appeared yesterday
jin the Baltimore Clipper. It illustrates better than
■ we can do by any comments of our own. the actual
I condition of the "City Government," and the
| character of the influences that control it:

We have received from Messrs. OSHTNGS ft BAI
LEY, Professor Corpse's "Gallery of Famous Eng
lish and American Poets," published by E. 11. BUT
LER A Co., Philadelphia. This is the work of which
Ave lately spoke in terms of such high commenda
tion, as being, perhaps, the finest specimen of
typography and illustrative art applied to the em
bellishment of a literary production, ever issued
from the American press. The selections them
selves, which cover quite a wide range of English
and American poets, are generally judicious, and
the whole work eminently deserving of the
praise we then bestowed upon it, of being "the most
beautiful book of the season."
NICARAGUAN AFFAI lis.
fFrom the Aew York Herald.]
On the 24th of August General Lamar, the Uni
ted States Minister, asked, in a very short, smart,
sharp and essentially substantial note, of Minister
Cortes, Secretary of Foreign Affairs for Nicaragua,
"whether the manifesto; or declaration, published
by the Xow York Herald and other papers of the
United States, purporting to be signed by Thomas
Martinez and Juan Kafael Mora, Supreme chiefs of
the Republics of Nicaragua and Costa Riea. and ap
pended to a certain contract Avitli a certain Mon
sieur Belly, Ac., Ac., was a genuine document or
not 1" He required a prompt and categorical an
siver. Next day (August 25,) having received
none, lie urged for a categorical and immediate one,
as one single word was desired, "yes or no." At
last the answer Avas given, but, oi' course, nothing
categorical in it.
This letter, after stating that the document allu
ded to Avasa copy of a "projet or manifesto," signed
by General Don Tomas Martinez, while he had left
the executiA-e power in order to go to the city of
Rii'as, and meet there his Excellency Don Rafael
Mora, who came for the purpose of settling the
boundary question between the tivo countries"pro- i
ceeds to an explanation of Martinez' conduct, and
says that the document was the "thought of a Nic- j
araguan citizen. Avritten and signed in the same I
terms as it could have been officially Avritten and 1
signed if it was approved by the legislative power
of Nicaragua and authorized by the executive,
should it be convenient to the' interests of the
country."
"That document, therefore," goes on Minister
Cortes, "is not an act of my government, is not a
public or an official document, but a private one,
and reveals the desire of a citizen to liberate bis
own country from the devastation ofthe fillibuster
ism Avhich desolated the fields, burnt the cities, de
stroyed the property, and took by hundreds the
lives of the inhabitants of this hospitable soil, the
friend of the great republic of North America."
Minister Cortes concludes by saying that he is
ordered to answer thus by his government; and, as
you know, the head, heart and soul of "his govern
ment" is General Don Tomas Martinez, tlie very
same "Nicaraguan citizen" who privately signed
the appeal to Europe against the United States.
According to his instructions—savs the American
Minister to this government, on (he 2Cth of Au
gust—lie is obliged to call its attention to the manv
and just claims of American citizens against Nica
ragua. Tlie atrocious robbery and murder commit
ted on Mr. Lawless, the murder of manv others,
the persecution and proscription of some American
citizens, and many other wrongs are alluded to, and
the government of Nicaragua is concisely but seri
ously admonished to make its preparations to meet
the demand for reparation and indemnity due by
this country to citizens of the United States.
General Lamar accompanies liis short, though
exceedingly significant, fareivell communication
Avitli a copy of a dispatch from his own government.
Mr. Cass reminds the American Minister in Nic
aragua of the propriety and necessity of urging the
claims of American citizens against Nicaragua, and
still more against Costa Rica. He refers on this
subject to former and very energetic instructions.—
After this general recommendation bespeaks of the
contract with Belly anil of the appended manifesto
published by the newspapers and signed, as it is
said, by Tomas Martinez and J. Rafael Mora. He
states, that although the authenticity of those doc
uments—especially the manifesto—is not officially
knoAvn to him at that date (25th of June), the pub
lication alluded to bears such a character of faith
fulness as to almost justify tlie belief that these doc
uments are genuine. The first thought of the Pres
ident, adds the Secretary of State, was to ascertain
the authenticity ofthe manifesto, and to proceed at
once to the dismissal of the Nicaraguan and Costa
Kican Ministers at AVashington, and the recalling of
the American Minister resident in said republics.—
He insists strongly on the gravity of the offence,
and savs afterwards:—
| "And had such a cause of offence been gii-cn bv
F ranee or England, or by any nation with a we'll
established government, properly appreciating its
duties towards foreign poAvers, this course w-ould
at once have been adopted."
After some other remarks referring to the same
subject, lie says :
"And still animated with those sentiments, the
United States AA'ill deal with forbearance Avith this
uncourteon? provocation, having no fear that their
moderation Avill be misunderstood. But yon will
give these governments distinctly to understand that a
suitable reparation will be insisted an, or the United
States will no longer be restrained by the considera
tions I have adverted to, from seeking by more effica
cious means proper redress for these unworthy impu
tations. Besides the reproaches wliioli this'effusion
of ill feeling is made the medium of communication
to the Avorld, it indicates a line of policy looking to
European intervention ivith American affairs, to
Avhich the United States have long since avowed
their opposition, and which they Avill resist under
all circumstances. I refer to the protectorate de
manded by this proclamation, and to tlie appeal to
the governments of France, England and Sardinia
to assume the duties attached to that position."
Air. Cass postpones tlie fuller development of his
vieivs with regard to this European protectorate,
in order to rebuke the various imputations in the
manifesto by the Presidents of Nicaragua and Costa
Rica. Here is one of liis paragraphs, ending this
subject:
"And subsequently the American authorities, at
a critical period, probably prevented by their in
tervention the accomplishment of another effort to
overthrow the existing government by a military
invasion. It is little creditable to the candor (if
the President of Nicaragua that these circumstan
ces have been entirely overlooked in his earnest de
sire to east reproach upon this country."
"The State of Nicaragua owes its political exist
ence, or rather its present rulers owe the power
they exercise, to the laws of the United States, as
executed bv this government, and the return for its
fidelity is the undignified denunciation Avhich has
been given to the Avorld." "But the Presidents of
these republics," continues Air. Cass, "deal in spe
cific facts as in more general allegations." They
charge that the government of the United States
has, according to official reports made to that of
Costa Rica, by its Minister Plenipotentiary at AA'ash
ington, declared it Avas utterly powerless to pre
vent past attempts by the fillibusters, or to protect
the neutrality of Central America, owing to the
insufficiency of the laivs of the United States on
this head."
The Secretary gives his views as to this charge,
and then says;
"This accusation is wholly without foundation.
No such declaration was ever made hv the govern
ment of the United States. It would* have been an
act at once of fatuity and of falsity. As to the dif
ficulties in the enforcement of these laws thev are
not denied, and have given much trouble to the
government in the efforts it has made to carry them
into effect; but that they are powerless, or have
proved so, no one in or out of the United States has
the right to assert. To these views connected with
this charge of acknowledged imbecility, I have now
to add that I have just had an interview with the
present Minister Plenipotentiary of Costa Rica in
this city, and have been assured by him that nosuch
declaration was ever received by him from this
government, nor communicated to his own. If
such a communication was ever made by any one in
good faith, it must have been done under some
strange misapprehension."
"As to the protectorate," he says, " which is in
voked for the independence and nationality of the
republics of Nicaragua and Costa Rica," it is a sub
ject very easily disposed of, so far as the United
tstates have any concern in the question. The
President has no belief that either of the Powers
thus publicly and improperly appealed to, has ever
given the least encouragement to such a proposi
tion, nor had any reason to anticipate it. The
French government has voluntarily disclaimed any
connection with M. Belly, and lias given assur
ances that it has no designs upon Central America,
but, on the contrary, has avoided any interference
of that kind.
A guarantee for the general use and security of
the Transit route, and also for its neutrality is a
desirable measure," which would meet the fie'artv
concurrence of the U. States. These views have
already been known to the governments of Costa Ri
ca and Nicaragua, and they have been informed
; "that the 1 resident indulges the hope that these
routes may vet be considered by general consent,
| as neutral highways for the world, not to be dis
i turbed by the operations of war. These great avc-
I rin I intercommunication are vastly interesting
I to all commercial powers, and all may well join in
securing their freedom and use against those dan
j gers to winch they are exposed from aggresssons
i r'itorvTbT, or without the ter
i ?u which they pass."
G fK Sta n ,i?hm< ' n yV t a P oliticftl protectorate
by an} of the Powers of Lurope over anv of the
! worX"// - ? ta j CB " f this co " ti,K '" t ' or in other
j 01 els, the introduction of scheme of policu which
• wo " Ul '" rr 'J " right to interfere in their con
cerns, is a measure to irhirh the United States have
j tang since aroiced their opposition, and ichich, should
the attempt he made, tlictj trill resist hy all the means in
their potter. The reasons for the attitude they have
assumed have been fully promulgated and are
everywhere well known. The years which have
passed by since this principle of separation was first
announced by the United States have served still
more to satisfy the people of this country of its
wisdom, and to fortifv their resolution to maintain
it, happen what may.'*
"The progress of events has rendered the inter
oceanic routes across the narrow portions of Cen
tral America vastly important to the commercial
world, and especially to the United States, whose
possessions, extending along the Atlantic and Paci
fic coasts, demand the speediest and the easiest
modes of communication. While the just rights of
sovereignty of the States occupying' this region
should always be respected, we shall expect that
these rights will be exercised in a spirit befitting
the occasion and the wants and circumstances that
have arisen. Sovereignty ka* its duties as well as its
rights, anil none of these local governments, even if ad
ministered with more regard to the just demands
oj other nations than they have hern, irould
lie permitted in a spirit of eastern isola
tion to close these gates of intercourse on the great high
ways of the world, and justify flic act by the pretension
that these avenues of trade awl travel belong to them,
and that they choose to shut them, or, what is al
most equivalent, to encumber them with such un
just regulations as would prevent the general use.
The United States do not seek either the control or
the exclusive use of these routes. They desire that
the advantages should be equally common to all
nations. Nor do they claim to interfere with the
local governments in the determination of the ques
tions connected with the opening of the routes, and
with the persons with whom contractsmay be made
for that purpose. What they do desire—and mean
to accomplish—is that the great interests involved
in this subject should not be sacrificed to anv un
worthy motive, but should be guarded from abuse;
and that when contracts are fairly entered into with
American citizens they should not be wantonly vio
lated.
Several of these Powers, and Nicaragana espe
cially. have in fact, by their public proceedings, in
vited the cn-operatiori of the capital and iniiustry
and enterprise of the world, in order to open these
lines of communication. The citizens ofthe United
States have contributed their full share towards the
accomplishment ofthe enterprise, and this govern
ment intends to use the means in its power to pro
tect them in the enjoyment of their rights. The
good faith of Nicaragua has been committed, and
large sums have been expended looking to its faith
ful observance.
As to the Belly contractile says: "The work (the
opening of a transit route) is as open to M. Belly
and his associates as to any other enterpris
ing person. There are but" two points con
neeted with this matter which have any interest
for the United States or would justify their inter
vention. The first is that no contract with Mr.
Belly, or with any one, indeed, should interfere
with engagements previously existing with Ameri
can citizens, but that all such engagements should
be preserved inviolate. And the second is that the
regulations and conditions of the grant should be
such as to render the routes free and safe to all na
tions, but controlled bv no one and upon moderate
and reasonable terms." * * *
"I will bring to your notice one extraordinary stip
ulation. which it could scarcely have been expect
ed would be acceptable to the United States, and
which must have been entered into in the anticipa
tion of their objections to it.
"This obnoxious arrangement provides that the
French government shall have the right to keep
two ships-of-war stationed in the waters of Lake
Nicaragua for the entire duration of the works.
"T am persuaded that this proposition will meet
no favor from the French government, anri'tliat its
name has been introduced here unwarrantable and
without its knowledge. The equality and security
of this inter-oceanic route constitute a great por
tion of their value to the world, and all commercial
Powers are interested in their maintenance. An
exclusive right in one of these Powers to exercise a
permanent armed intervention would give serious
cause of dissatisfaction to all the others, and the
United States freely avow their determination to
oppose such a measure, should the governments of
Costa Kica and Nicaragua attempt to carry it into
effect."
After saying that this government has 110 dispo
sition to determine the interests of parties claiming
the right of opening a transit, Mr. Cass says:—
"But what it has the tight to do, and Avhat it is
disposed to do, is to require that the government of
Nicaragua should act in good faith towards them,
and should not arbitrarily and wrongfully divest
them of rights justly acquired and solemnly guaran
teed.
"The United States believe it to be their dutv —
and they mean to execute it —to Avatch over the
persons and property of their citizens visiting foreign
countries, and to intervene for their protection when
such action is justified by existing circumstances
and by the laws of nations. Wherever their citi
izens may go through the habitable globe, Avhen
they encounter injustice they may appeal to the gov
ernment of their country, and tlie appeal will be ex
amined into, with a A'iew to such action
on their behalf as it may be proper to take.
It is impossible to define in advance and
with precision those cases in Avhich the
national power may be exerted for their relief, or
to what extent relief shall be afforded. Circum
stances as thev arise must prescribe the rule of ac
tion. In countries where Avell defined and estab
lished laAvs are in operation, and where their ad
ministration is committed to able and independent
judges, eases will rarely occur where such interven
tion will be necessary. But these elements of con
fidence and security are not everywhere found; and
where that is unfortunately the case the United
are called upon to be more vigilant in
watching "over their citizens, and to interpose
efficiently for their protection, Avhen they are sub
jected to tortuous proceedings by the direct action
ofthe government, or by its indisposition or inabil
ity to discharge its duties."
Mr. Cass concludes his valuable document Avith
two paragraphs, which are too important and too
full of meaning to admit of any mutilation. They
are as follows:
"This government, hoAvcver, yet indulges the
hope that, a returning sense of justice may induce
the governments of Nicaragua and Costa Kica to re
! cognise their duties and to afford redress for the
I serious causes of complaint Avhicli the United
States have urged, lint it is proper they should both
; distinctly understand that the American people and
government hare yielded enough to the weakness of
those republics, and without doing them injustice, they
\ will now take care and (Injustice to themselves.
"Preparatory to such action as may be necessary,
a naval force wi 11 be stationed at San Juan del
Norte, and also at San Juan del Surand at Realejo,
with orders to afford all necessary protection to the
j persons and property of American citizens; and the
commanding officer's will be directed to comniu
| riicate with you, and you will not fail to keep them
advised upon all the subjects which may relate to
j the execution of the duties thus entrusted to
| them."
HARVESTS.
IRELAND. —The Cavlow I'ost has the following sat
j isfactory report:—"Our harvest prospects, thanks
; to a merciful and beneficent Providence, are all that

rection ofthe Register-General, but we have reason

places adjacent to the town of Carlow the sickel has
not yet commenced operations. Everything prom
ises favorable to a plentiful year—glorious tidings
for the poor."
SCOTLAND. —It is generally believed among agri
culturists that the wheat crop ofthe present year
ivill be one of the finest and heaviest that has been
reaped for many seasons. An extraordinary case
of a large return of this crop has come under our
notice. A farmer in East Lothian, ivho has jnst
thrashed out the crop 011 fii'e and a half Scotch
acres, finds the produce of this field to be 111 bolls,
or 444 bushels. The Avbeat Avas of the kind knoAvn
as Hunter's A'arietv, and Avas sown after potatoes.
The yield is about twelve quarters to the imperial
acre.— Scotsman.
CALIFORNIA—CONDITION OF THE STATE.
[From the Alia California.]
! As the fall months approach, the rivers are grad
j naily receding in their rocky channels and their
waters are being pressed into service all over the
j country through the divers ivindings of the nutn
| berless canals, enabling the miners to lay bare new
i treasures, and accumulate good store of wealth,
j which, happily, they are industriously accomplish
ing. From every portion of the State the mining
[ news is most favorable, the mountains continuing to
yield of their precious yellow metal in the usual
1 abundance in every department of mining,
j The quartz mills are busily at ivork, extracting
I the gold from its subtle hiding place in the hard
\ rock, and the yield in this branch is becoming every
j day greater than before; ivhile experience is like-
I ivise developing new facts in relation to it, that
I renders it better understood in the mode of sepa
rating the gold from the quartz, and thus tending to
I make the business constantly more stable, firm and
' remunerative.
The results from the Frazer river country have
not as yet proven conclusively the extent oi- rieh
j ness ot the neiv mining region. It has been shown,
hoivei-er, and is now almost universally conceded,
j that the whole country, north of the Columbia
river, far up into the British possessions, is rich in
I gold deposits, and it only remains to be seen ivhat
are the best means of overcoming the obstacles in
| tervening, that render the working of these mines
; difficult and dangerous, to show the world another
' great gold country, which is hereafter to contribute
j of its substance to the ivants and luxuries of man
; kind, to a material degree.
! From the southern portion of the State, as well
1 as from the regions round about the bay of San
! Francisco, the song of the vintage time is borne
: upon the breeze. The broad acres of vinyards are
I loaded down with delicious clusters of grapes, while
the vine pres'es are being made ready for duty, in
extracting the rich and exhilarating juice from the
pulp of the delicious fruit. The yield of wine this
season will be far beyond all former precedent, and
its quality will doubtless be much improved. Tivo
large steamers are now - required to bring the grapes
from Los Angeles to this market, for evcry-day
consumption.
The political cauldron has ceased to bubble, the
fires have gone out, and the elements are stilted,
while the attention of all is once more directed to
the legitimate channels of business. Every branch
of industry is being prosecuted vigorously, and
the season was never more auspicious for Califor
nia's prospective welfare, than it is at the present
moment.
Aliss Lander's, the Salem Sculptress's statuette of
A'irginia Dare, which arrived in ship Malabar with
Crawford's statue of James Otis, is unpacked.
This beautiful work of art, which is in Italian mar
ble of rare delicacy in color and texture, is about
three feet and a half high, and represents A'irginia
Dare, the first white person born on the American
continent, as standing on the shores of the great
lakes. She stands on the sandy beach, her fine
head erect, and her folded hands resting upon the
fishing net, which is gracefully drawn around her
for drapery. Indian ornaments are on her arms
and neck, and a beach-bird, the pet and companion
of the young Indian maidens, is by her side. This
statue en petite is full of originality and sentiment, !
and \vc hope ere long to see it reproduced the size j
of life.— Boston Transcript, Sept. 28.
HEAVY DEFALCATION AT NORTHAMPTON. The 1
Springfield (Mass.) Bcpubliean states that the fail- ;
ure of AA'hite, Smith ft Co., of Northampton, man- i
ufacturers of enameled cloth, was brought about .
by the embezzlements of their selling agent in Neiv '
York, Mr. David S. Damon, ivhose depredations j
npon the company are estimated all the way from
$ JO,OOO to $75,000. The firm possessed the confi
dence of the community, and many citizens had in
vested in its notes; some had thus put out all or
nearly all of their means, and the failure overtakes
them with great distress. It is calculated that the
concern owes citizens of Northampton about 540,-
000 for money loaned or for endorsement, for which
none of thein have any security. Dr. Damon is in
jail at Northampton under a charge of debt.
According to a recent publication made bv the
Statistical Office, the population of Chili at the end i
of 1857 was 1,558,310 souls, showing an increase of '
110.199 inhabitants during the four years since i
1854. *
