We ere aga'n obliged, by lb* greet dementi upeu oar space, to oondense u much ee pamible the letter* of oar correspondents. la eo do'ng, bowsver, we hare not omitted any information contained therela, end we hove no doaht our readers will be better satisfied, as It will also prove an economy of time to them. We are in res* pt of an extensive oorrespondeaee frees California, ell of which concur* in representing that State as in a flourishing condition. One of oar correspondents (e ledy, we suspect,) informs us that It is the only State in the Union where a due respeet Is paid to "that mise rable class called baeheiors"?that, thanks to the anti cipation* of doting mammas, they are absolutely dolfled Our correspondent, however, is "disgusted" to And that it is the gold which Is deified, after all, and not the bathe Iocs, and that the flair sex only worship thoes dottles who have abandonee of the precious metal. This cer tainly U a terrible condition ol things, and should bs re medied immediately. We trust the revolution will not be confined to OalifoniU, but that its influence wltt bo felt in every State, tor the sake of "the Ualon." A correspondent from Sacramento Oity sends us n re port of the proceedings of the State Convention held there on March 12, for the eleoUon of delegates to the Democratic National Convention which is to ?Memble at Cincinnati on the 2d of Jons next Resolutions wore, It appears, offered by Governor Btgler in favor of the nomination oi Mr. Buchanan tor the Presidency, and instructing the delegates to vote to support him until his name should bo withdrawn by s majority of his known friends. Ths following are the names of the delegates appointed, who, our correspondent cays, "are good men and will obey instructions:"? Meter*. Daeh, of Sheets; Rust, of Sutler; Dawley, of Ne vada; Duel, of Eldoraoo; Solomon, of Tuolumne; Hill, of Sonoma; logo, of San Francis so; and Brent, of Los An gelce?numbering eight altogether. Another California correspondent writes us to the same effect, and adds tbat a'l the efforts of the Pierce delegates were fruitless. Be says: "The democracy of California are full of vitality, and if the discordant elements of the party could be brought in'.o harmonious action, there is no doubt that they would oarry the State." The Gwinaud Brodeiick fee'ions are, it appears, as hostile towards each other as tf they did not profess the same political faith, while the determination is eonstantly avowed that they will not give way an tnoh. The Brederlek party, eontrary to general expectation, offered little or no re sistance to the passage in the oonvention of resolution* favoring the Nebraska bill and approving the policy of General Heree. The whig party, we are told, has no existence in California, and in consequenoe of the demand for emigration Know Nothlrgism Is not so popular there ss it is in other States. Even the erusade which hes been wtged egalnet the Chinees, it has appears, lost IU internity, and the propriety of repealing the laws now in operation egalnet them has nearly the entire press among its advocates. There are. eiso, our correspoodeut aaye, indications of strong efforts being made to organiie a republican party; but he believes the nominee of the Democratic Convention at Cincinnati will oarry the State if (he party are active and vigilant, which they must be, as the nigger worshippers have held various meeting* to per'ect a wide spread organization in the Interest of Seward or ore of his followers. Speaking of the affairs of Ad?ms & Co., he says that the creditors have been notified to *end in their claims to the referee before May next. Alfred A. Cohen, a young Englishman, who became connected with Woods bofore the til are, end who was appointed receiver, haa been committed to prison for contempt. The Court haa been engaged in de termining the amount of funds that oame into Cohen's bands as receiver, and the jury have ordered a verdiet tbat be received $266 000. Be turned over to the new reoelver $148,800, wbioh is all, he oontends, that wes paid him?the amount claimed by the proeeoution as In hi* poeeeeeion being nearly $400,000. In regard to the trpu . blee with the Indians inhabiting Northern California, Oregon and Washington Territories, a great deal of un easiness is felt, and It U feared from present appearances that fhey are in the midst of a general war with tliem Arms and ammunition have been sent to the people o hose Territories. Governor Johnson recommended the calling into aerviee a c .mpany of mounted men, and the Legislature promptly voted the necessary amount to car ry cut the measure. Gen. Wool, who is now at tha seat of war, oonsldered this fores unneeessary, however, and slated that he had sufficient United States troops to pro teot the frontier and subdue the Indiae*. There are se veral tbouiend volunteers in the field, and these, with about two thousand regulars, are considered torse enough to " conquer a peace." A correspondent at Clevetand is in raptures wi h the growth and prosperity of that city, which, to uie his own words, is "in communication with all the wond and the rest of mankind"?a very deelraile condition to be in, oertalnly. The dry goods Jobbing, it is estimated, amonnte to $1,600,000; the boot and shoe buiiness to $1,000,000; the hardware to $1,800,000; the elothlng to $800,000; hats, caps, millinery, Sio., to $800,000; and grcceries to $2,000,000. rrivate and public building*, of the finest description, are being erected, and the elty is a ire with enterprise. Then the authorities are eageged in the construction of water works to supply the city with an abundance of pure and fresh water from the lake. These works will cost about $800,000, and will, it isexpec'ed, be completed this year, In time for the State Fair, wh'eh takes plasein September. In the midst ol this general prosperity the people are not unmindful of the in 'eiesta of education, having erected a fine looking edilice f r tbe accommodation of the Central High School. The Ohio c*nai is open, the wat?r having been lot in on the 2?d fast., so that the large amount of produoe which has been awaiting the opening of navigation will soon find its way to our Eastern maikets. The spring election has re sulted in the success of the democratic parly throughout the Slate, but nearly all the candidates are opposed to the administration. Serious complaints are made by a correspondent on board the United States steam frigate Savannah, writing from Rio de Janeiro March 16, 1866, in regard to the manner in wbioh letters and packages Intended for per sons on hoard that ship reach their destination. " Yes terday," he says, "we received a letter bag from the Navy Department via Buenos Ayres, which had baen on its way to this placs since October last." Be advleee persons who have friends on board vessels belonging to this squadron to direct their letter* to the care of Hugh Jenkins A Co., Baltimore, by whom they will be immedi ately forwarded. Onr correspondent alro complains of the action of tha late Navy Board, which, it ap pesrs, bas, according to bis experience, been productive of much trouble. As an instance of this, he says: "We have at present on the Savannah two captains, one com mander snd nine lieutenants; on the German town two otmmanders and seven lieutenants; and on the Bain bridge one commander and five lieutenants; while there 1* not a master, passed midshipman cr midshipman in the squadron." The Balnbrtdge sailed on the 18th of March last for an island naar Cape Horn, to rescue some shipwrecked persons who are said to be there. The Wa ter Witch left Rio de Janeiro on the 26th of February for the United States. The German town is at Montevideo, officers and crew well. In Rio were the following men of-war:?Savannah, (American) ; frigate Madagascar steamer Sharpahooter, brig Spy, (English); frigate Forle, corvettes Thisbc and Auiteriitc, (Frnnnh). Health of Rio good. In reply to a letter published in the Bf.iulo of April 9, in which the consular agents of the United States are spoken of as a flegracs to our country, Mr. Samuel Bromberg, late United States Consul to Hamburg, writes to us with the view of freeing himself (rom the general charge. Mr. Brcmberg, as a proof that snch a charge oannot be brought against him, sands us a printed copy of a letter which was signed by cltisens of the Uni ted States doing businos* In Hamburg, bearing testi mony to "the efficient, able and prompt manner" in whieh he performed the duties of bis office. A Virginia eorrespoadent, writing on the 14th Inst, from Farmville, Prinee Edward eounty, informs us that at a convention of the democracy of the Fourth electo ral district of the Btato, held there the day bofore, non.

From Baltimore, April 23, we lean that the West ern Congressional dUtnet* of the Bute selected, the day previous, Hen. John Thorn rsew Masow (Judge of the Court of Appeals), and Hon. R.

The petition of the New York Irish Aid Society, which w* are informed has been presented In the Board of Councilman, is particularly deserving the consideration or the Common Council. The object of this association is the trans porta lion to the Western States of the laboring classes of Irish emigrants, who on their arrival at our seaport cities find themselves without money, employ ment, or friends. In proportion to the extent of its means the eeetety has done a great deal of good, and is really deserving of the assiataeoe for which it be* pe titioned the Common Council. "As a fact of general interest," say* a correspondent, " serving to throw some light on the subject, we were told yesterday by a reepectab.e resident of this city, who formerly resided on the east Bide or Long Island, that, several yean ago, while fishing at night for shall fish, in New Inlet, ho discovered the body of a man who had been drowned in the East river"?proving that be had been serried by a current out to sea, and east there. This is seme fifteen miles to tbe eastward of Roeknwny, and considerably beyond the place where tbe body of young Pierce was found; so that hereafter, when persons are drowned in the Beat river, their bodies, if long missing, should be searched for along the east shore of Long Island. Persons who were familiar with the condition of the Feat river, opposite the oity, between Twenty-second and Twenty-ninth streets, on the night of the 31st of January last, says that the water wee frozen hard enough at that time to hear a team and wagon for forty or fifty jarde from shore, and that, had young Pierce accldeu tally fallen off the dock, or jumped off, he would hero been discovered ; I adhere to a formor opinion expressed in the Bnuu>, that he was fou ly dealt with, and s'aio by mistake, for some other person, perhaps aided by chloroform, and sunk beneath the ioe. His preservation tor so long a period in the water, with such slight altera tions in his person or clothing, proves conclusively that this could only have happened by remaining in oontact with iee." Lntiet Indian News. A BATTLE WITH TDK INDIANS?ONE 80LD1BB KILLED AND SIX WODNDBD. 1 [From the Tempa Peninsular Extra of April 16.] The following intelligence was received by CoL Monroe yesterday aiternoon. We compile the statements here given from Mnjr Arnold's report:? While scouting tn the Big Cypress, wi h the available force of his command, composed of Capt. Dawson, sseond IJeuts. Leagdon and Gardner, Assistant Surgeon Moore, and 108 enlisted men, Major Arnold was attacked, on the 7th, by Indians, es trusted at from 80 to 100,who were iy trg in wait in a thick oypress swamp (water two fett deep), about bait e mile from "Billy's town." Tire first ind [cation of thtir prtaeoce was a fir* froui them on the advanced guard, whloh was soon followed by a fully vol thy i n the column. Company C, commanded by Lieut. Gardner, leading eff, whloh, at that time, was not for in the rear of the ad recced guard. After exchanging s me three hundred shots on both sides a charge in front was ordered. At least 6Py tour Indians ran towards "Billy's town," and a numl>ei took to a dense c; pie is In tbe right, lbe eypiers was charged, bur no Indians were olnoveied, although they were seen go into it. Those who had retreated to tbe hammock, towards Billy's town, were iben attacked. When within a short distanoe of tbe town, a large xumberol Indians were seen running east, towards an abandoned villege, surrounded oa all sides by a very dense hammock, excepting in front, where was a very large pond or swamp, covered with tail grata end about two feet of water. As this hammock was approached, the Indlsnv fired a volley, whloh was returned by the advanced guard, under Lieutenant Largdon. The enemy then ran to another ban mock, belt a n Pa to the nrrth; the troopa followed; the Indiana there fixed again, whlib was returned; a charge waa then made, before which the Indian* retreat en, sad ware punned until ail leasee ei than were lost, lbe Hah; and pursuit oeeneiefi ear hours.

On iroUon of Mr. Starr, one ot tbe most distinguished law yers of Iowa, who hap never been contaminated by an tern, resolutions were adopted defining the positron of the old line whigs on all the topics ot the day. The reiolu tions denounce nigger worshipping abolitionism In tbe most emphatic manner, and, regarding themselves as temporarily ' under the weather," they counsel the whigs to ''bide their time," to have nothing to do with the nigger woashipping movement.

The Peach Chop.?Our readers will be gratified to learn that we have a prospect of a fair crop or thin de licious Irnlt?the peach?the coming season. The follow ing communication, written by an old and experienced pomologlat, will be perused with pleasure, and may be relied upon:? Notwithstanding the lodg continued oold weather of tbe pest winter, in consequence of which so many prophecies were made that the destruction of the peeen buds in this region would be complete, the pros peots of a fine crop of peaches in this vicinity are now generally goed and encouraging. It is now a well estab lished fact that the peach buds cannot endure a greater degree of cold than twelve or fifteen below zero of F'ahr. In many places of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, bi.t where the mercury fell to twenty degrees or more below zero, the buds of the peach tree are mostly killed; while on Cayuga Island and at Peach Haven, on Grand Island, where the fluid sunk to but eleven degrees below zero on the coldest days, perhaps but from one-third to one-half of the bads were destroyed, leaving uui'e enough for a bountiful erop. On the 6th of February, I860, the mercury sunk to 17 below zero, and the whole crop was 1c st. The destruction of peaeh and other trees during the past winter by field mice, however, has been very great. In December and Janu ary last tbe snow cane suddenly and fell light to a great depth, and tor three months there was no thaw to settle it, so that the mice, hindered by no obstruction, made their roads in all directions. By the ravages of these ver min one man on Grand Island, has lost his whole orchard 01 400 trees, and another of 600. Mr. B. Hodge, of this city, who has a large fruit Harm at Peach Haven, is per haps the greatest sufferer from this source, as his loss is at least $3,000. It Is noti cable, that on these grounds the mice seem to have shown a decided preference for the bark of the peach and apple, as his extensive pear or chards adjoining are almeat uninjured. The destructive At orgies 01 the field miuse seem not to have been con fined to any one county, for we read that la Monroe coun ty alone the loss to fruitgrowers from this sou roe will reach 8100,000, while good authorities state that there can be little doubt that this loss in the whole 9tate will amaunt to more than 81,000,000?Buffalo Adwniucr, April 24.

A plain tablet on the (a^ede bears the siaspte Inscription, "A Presbyterian ehurch, erected la the year of oar Lord 1707." The Brtok flhuroh, (so sailed) f?r p?.if a century oeoupied by the venerable Rev. Dr. Gardi ner Spring and hU people, fnraMies the asoet notable of these changes. It is to be sold at public auction, together with the property adjoining and belonging to it, bounded by Bookman street, Park plaee, City Hall square and Nassau street, on the 14th of May next; no bid to be lower ?>"" $295,000. This property is upon the lot so long wanted lor the Post office. It was donated originally to the church by the elty and corporation, and It was tor this reason that the right of its trustee!) to sell it was so leng disputed; but our preeent municipal government have compromised the matter, and the property is now likely to be more available tor commercial usee tkaa (owing to the disappearance of dwellings in that onoe aristocratic neighborhood) it has been for religious purposes for ten years put. StUl, we hope that the ministrations of the old church may not entirely abandon this godlesR ne'ghborhood; for here and there, In ostlers and garrets, there remain* a pretty considerable sprinkling of Irish, French, Spanish, Italian and Dutoh tenants, shoeless, perhaps, but with souls to be saved. The Briek Church society !? rieh as I Croesus; but we trust It has more bowels than that an cient millionaire. By the way, en passant, we learn that the society baa not yet fixed upon a location up town. II the trustees will allow us, we would suggest that they should purchase area enough to run no risk of having their houre surrounded and elbowed, chrek by jowl, in tfce eourse of a few years, by porter bonus and Ikitch groceries A little less expense upon au edifice than is utual upon modern city ohurches, and a little more libe ral out ay for land, would be the wiur course.

A statement having appeared In your paper ot yesterday, that I, as or.ntractor for building a sewer in fleoond avenue, had paused the dirt to be thrown upon both tracks of the He coed Avenue Railroad, purposely to obstruct the passage of their cars, I desire through your column* lo deny it moat em pbaUcnriy. In building a sewer ot this site, requiring a cut IB test wide and 60 test deep t which is larger than the Proton aqueduct), it la ImpoastDle to throw the dirt excavated on one side only, without losing n large quuaMty of the material used tn building the sewer, by rolling aowa the bank (the avenue beirg some feet above the level of tha Iota on either side), and wbich could only be replaced, when required, at a great ex perse to tbeoouiraetor. The dkrt was thrown on Saturday afternoon, and not on Sunday, aa stated. The Heilrosd Pom pany sent a large body of mea en Saturday night, who remov ed H ttr m the track, throwing it down the bank, to the serious Injury ot the contractor. Some perrons afterwards, wllhou' my knowledge or consent, and I presume more from a spirit ot mischief tear, aught eb a, replaced It where It belonged. The only manner \n which the Irsek ean be sept clesr is by oar Jag the dirt rior.vaud oft the line of the nvenne. and again bring Ing it back as required. at a very great additional expense.

If tha Department at Wash ingtoa would lefuee to pay this Presbyterian Brard the money for which their services are rendered to the heathen until they comply with the regulations, which requires)! lohools, or rather heads of aoheols, t> report to the sgeat, there would be none of this f iolery on *ito pert ot the Presbyterian schoolmasters. But so long ae they get the money they don't caie for anything else. The teachers at this school are very good indeed, and made quite an interesting duplay at their exhibition, at which I was present. A great source ct annoyance to au egsnt is the want oC proper support on the part of the military within the agency, eeveral rascals have gone unwblpped oi Jus'ioe for the want of an efficient forre to carry out the leqmre menu of the law. The foot is, the Secretary of War should either compel the offioers in command of these outposts to comply with the requirements of the law, or send item where they would not cost the government an much to support thsm. Two men were sent to the com mending cfflcer at Port Washingtou, charged with viola tions ct the intercourse laws, to be sent to Van Buren, at the end ol five days they were sent bsck to me, with a cote stating that there were no men to spare to send rewn to Ven Buren.
