We alluded a few days ago to the ease of this poor, old man, who has for nearly six months been confined in a cell of the San Francisco county jail, for offending the dignity of the Su preme Court of California in asserting In the presence of that august tribunal that one of the Judges, had held Ids office beyond the time for which he was elected, and that he held his seat upon the bench with out legal authority and in violation of the constitution of the State: an opinion which is held by many of the most prominent members of the legal pro fession on the coast. An effort for his release was to have been made by a number of legal gentlemen, but it ap pears, that being imprisoned by an or der from the highest court in the State from which there is noappeal, be must languish In the gloomy cell of his prison during the pleasure of the Court or until death releases him from the power of his judicial persecutors. The Grass Valley Union speaks of his ease as follows: “ The Supreme Court of California is composed of some five or six (we haven’t called the roll lately) great big men. They are well to do in this world; they wear as much purple and tine linen every day as they want to wear; they dine and wine to an extent that would be satisfactory to the most extreme follower of Epicu rus; they have been honored by the people with high places in the State. Philosopher Pickett, on the contrary, la an old and a poor man; he is afflicted with a disease which gives the extreme of physical suffering. He, perhaps, made a mistake in rust ing against those well-led judges and defying them. He thought that one of them held on to an office beyond the time to which that judge bad been elected. He was right. His manner was blunt, but it was honest. And so those big judges confined the old and poor man iu a prison, and they intend, it seems, to keep him there. He has been com* palled by sickness to be taken from the common Jail to the County Hospital, but the Supreme Court did not order the change for the better. M r. Pickett, who has pluck and brains, has fallen Into the clutch oY the Supreme Court of this State, and in bis case habeas corpus, by the nature of the case, is aqspendad. There has never, in all tbo bistory of civilization, a greater ease of Injustice occurred. The old man will rot in prison, we believe, and there Is no power to relieve him. The highest Court in the State he has of fended and there la no appeal from that Court.” Tax Connecticut Election—The latest news from Connecticut shows that the Democratic State ticket has made a clean sweep throughout the Commonwealth by a majority approx imating to 4,000, the largest Democratic majority that has been given at any election in the State for years. Both branches of the Legislature are largely Democratic. Only one Republican (Mr. Starkweather) has been elected to Congress. General Hawley, Repub lican, Is defeated by about 500. Tbe result Is perhaps attributable more to the foot that the Republican State Con vention unequivocally indorsed tbe administration of President Grant, and nominated a ticket composed princi pally of men ideniifle i with hi- polit ical interests, than to any change of heart experienced by tbe people of tbe Nutmeg State adverse to the cardinal principles of the Republican party. Uncle Parkinson, of tbe Carson TribuH4, alter publishing and indors ing an article which appeared in the Hkntinbl a few days ago relative to our senior, adds the following: We take pleasure in stating, as here tofore vs have acknowledged, that George W. Ctwaidy made a record in Ihs Senate of Nevada of which be and hts friends may well be proud. We nmy enact end light and black mmed* seiRstlmeK but have still per aphnafcv enough left to distinguish s sasa of ability from a suob. Friend Cassidy may get up a political Agbt wtm at. but can aiwaysemiui on sup pose from the TV#** few legislative positions ae long aa w« pr*Efc|s over its. “Lyon County Times.”—Harry J. Norton has assumed editorial charge of the Lyon Connty Times during the temporary absence of Mr. Kenyon. Mr. Norton is an experienced journal ist and will keep up the reputation of that excellent paper. The Reveille denies that the “sol dier’s game,” is taught in the Austin Sunday Schools, and stoutly maintains that no higher branches of the art than three-card monte has yet been intro duced among the Sabbath exercises. Michiqan Election.—The election held in Michigan on the 5th instant re 8ii11ad in a Republican victory by a larger majority than that of last year. Of twenty-one Circuit Judges elected thirteen were Republican. HfCUISlUi. A company of twenty-five emigrants, from tbe East, says the Gold Hill News of the 6th instant, including two wo men, were landed at the depot, in Vir ginia, yesterday afternoon, in a blind ing snow storm. They stated that they were nearly destitute of money, and being entirely unacquainted with the country were at a loss what to do. They inquired for some cheap hotel or boarding-house, to which they were directed. They had a big disgust cn, and wondered what ever induced them to leave their comfortable homes and come to this 1 arren and forbidding re gion. One man stated that he had mortgaged his farm in Ohio to rai-e money to get to the bonanza. They were advised to go through to Califor nia and get a job of harvesting in the valleys of that State. Tne seeding business is further ad vanced in Paradise Valley at present than ever before at this season. Some of the farmers are almost through, and nearly all the others have at least half their crops in. The area under cultivation this year is larger than heretofore. Miss Virginia Balmforth, a Califor nia girl, has just received letters patent lor the invention of a new portable “button-hole.” If somebody would invent a shirt-button that wouldn’t lose its grip, that person would be the mother of her country. About two months ago at least 200 persons from Salt Lake City made their appearance on tbe streets of Virginia, attracted by the fame of the bonanza. Since then they have disappeared one by one until but few remain. Henry Clark and James Neary re cently returned to Pioche Irom Pana mint. They say there are not 500 peo ple in the camp, and men are leaving it daily. The Lander county tax for the cur rent year is $2 upon earth one hun dred dollars’ worth of taxable property, making with the State $2 U0 upon each one hundred dollars’ valuation. A Mr. Finnegan has recently ex tracted several tons of ore which worked $350 per ton, from an aban doned claim in Amador district, about six miles north of A uslin.

Tbe dog poisoner is at work in Aus tin. n i n n mm am From tbo Belmont Coorior. The Potomac Mine.—For the past ten years, from time to time, John P. Courtier lias expended labor and labor on what is known as Ibe Potomac mine, at 8an Antonio, and at lust it is confidently believed the true Assure vein has been found, containing a flue body of fligb grade ore. It appears that heretofore a considerable portion of the money expended lias l>een to no purpose, as the mother vein had not been reached. Within the past tew days, a huge vein, with well defined walls, has been cut through, contain ing a prospect that will cheer the young heart of John P. Courtier, who is now at San Francisco. This develop ment, if it proves what is expected of it, will inspire new life in the old •San Antonio Distriot. John will doubtless abandon his present domes tic happiness at the Bay for a time, and attempt a trip to his mine by lelegraph, on receiving the news of the strike, A correspondent at Ellsworth, Nye county, sends us the following: James K. Evans, one of the discoverers of this district, died on the 21st ultimo. De ceased was horn in Brown county, Ohio, In 1824, which made him 61 years of age at the time of Ills death. He crossed the plains in 1850 and settled in Kllswortb in 1888, where he had re aided up to the Miue of his death. De ceased was highly esteemed by those who best knew him. His remains were followed to the grave by ell the eitiaene of the town. El Doha do South Shaft.—We un derstand the new vertical shaft of the Kl Dorado South Mining Company has attained a depth of 70 feet. Consider ing the short length of time since the work was ootuinenoed, it has been qgjfckly done, and for which labor eugskholders wilt not growl to put up their coin, as it is a well-directed un dertaking. TrT~ at Hot Creek.—Jos. T. Wll IMmIM)sold to Maurice N. Donahue three bundled aeros of land, situated in IM Hot CFMOtCfruiyon, known as the Ubaer WIpHNM' ranch. We did not lei^l'lhe pffee paid for the property. SALE OF Mines.—Valuable mining property has recently changed hands in the Reveille District, and the coin pgM on delivery.

New York, April 7. In the Beecher case this morning, it was agreed by counsel, and consented to by the Court, that the further exam ination of Henry M. Cleveland be post poned till lie can go to the country and recover. Here Strike* Expected—Military Movement. Philadelphia, April 7.

The miners at Minooko struck to day for ten per cent, advance. Other strikes are expected. Philadelphia, April 7. The wires have been occupied with offlc!al business. There is no news from Hazelton,and it is though trouble has grown out of the citizens’ meeting there last night. The strikers intimidate the Police -Military Called Upon. Hazelton, April 7. The two regiments of infantry and one of artilhry ordered are expected to-day. About fifty of the special po lice, who arrived here last night, left this afternoon for Philadelphia from intimidation. The suicidal policy of tiie men in stopping the pumps may be understood when tiie fact is stated that, if a compromise should be imme diately effected, it will take from four to five months to pump the mines dry. Until then the miuers must reiusin idle. WlLKESBARRK, Pa., April 7. The sheriff to-day liecame satisfied that it was useless to try any longer to preserve order in tiie coal regions by u posse and called for troops. General Osborne at once ordered the Ninth Regiment of Infantry and tiie VV'yni oning Artillery, of this place, with a battery of four guns, to proceed to Hazelton. Toe general and his staff left here at 7 P. m. for the scene of the disorder. Fire In the Coni Mines—The Strik ers Refuse to Put It Out. Hazelton, Pa., April 7. A fire broke out accidentally in one of tiie mines at Stockton to-day, and the miners at a meeting held expressly lo consider the question, absolutely re fused to assist T(f putting it out, al though such action on their part is in direct opposition to their interests. A messenger from Stockton arrived for assistance to pul out the fire, and a ■squad of special police has been de tailed for that purpose. Lenderman, proprietor of the Stock ton Company, telegraphed here offer ing a steam tireenginecompauy $10,000 if they will quench the tire. The pumps at Buck Mountain are all idle, and a raid is looked for at that place to-night. Rhade Island Election—The Repub licans Carried the Mtate. Providence, R. I., April 7.

There is no election for Governor or Lieutenant Governor, but the remain der of tiie Republican State ticket is elected by a very large majority— the iargest ever given in the State— witli three wards and three towns to hear irotn. Resignation of Wen. Hill—Rumored Appointment. Washinoton, April 7. Assistant Attorney General Hill has offered his resignation to take effect at the adjournment of the present ses sion of tiie Supreme Court.

A detachment of 150 volunteers started this morning lor Hazleton and the third detachment leaves this even ing. Beecher Ceatlaaes His Testlmoajr. New York, April 7. In the Beecher trial this morning, although all the parties were present promptly, the proceedings did not commence till fully 15 minutes after the usual hour, counsel for defense liv ing engaged in consultation. Beecher resumed and testified as follows: In December, 1872, “I do not think there was any interview between Tilton and myself about the Bev. Dr. Storrs, n<>r do I remember any con versa) ion about IiIm visit to Stone’s. When Tilton was reading bla true story, and when he prefaced a passage by saying: ‘If you could stand that you could stand it all,' I did not say ' be might as well state tbs fact as put It in that way.’ In a subsequent conversation whh Moul'.on, I said I was a b'ockhead if he supposed 1 would stand that sen tence. This was said as a protest. Moulton said something about an In terview with Tracy about this matter. We were-talking and he dropped that bis lawyers had said sq; I was startled with surprise, and he .-kid he did not intend to carry the case any further without lawyers. He said something about Tracy, but t here was no under standing between us that Tracy should he brought into it, nor did I propose his name. The understanding was that no lawyer should he brought into our counsels.” In reply to a question by Evarts, as to Moulton’s testimony in regard to a conversation he stated that be had with witness about em ploying Tracy as counsel. Beecher said “nothing of the kind occurred. It was all imagination. Moulton never said to me that lie told Tracy that I was guilty of adultery with Mrs. Til ton, and that he (Tracy) said if lids was true it mustlmkeptquietat all hazards. It is an absolute fact, said witness, that there is not a woid of truth in it; it is false from beginning to end. He nev er said anything to me about it except wlmt I have slated. He never told me he told Tilton of having informed Gen. Tracy ot it. This is entirely false; 1 never told Moulton I was glad Tilton had assented to this ronrse, and per haps good would come < utof it. ’ Wit ness testified to 25 years’ acquaintance with Oliver Johnson. PACIFIC COAST OISPATCHES FROBI CALIFORNIA. Kxploalen of UUnt Powder-Des tructive fire and Fearful tarns •f Life. San FiiANCispo. April 8, About half past three o’clock yester day afternoon, an explosion of giant powder took place in a small shanty on Harrison street, below Spear, used as an office and plaee for preparing giant powder cartridges by J. N. Ki» don, the contractor for removing Kin eon mck. The explosion shattered the building into fragments and also demolished a saloon at the corner of Spear and Harrison streets, a frame dwelling on Spear street, another dwelling on Harrison street, adjoining i he office on tiie east, and crushed in tiie nor hwest corner of Hathaway's brick bonded warehouse, next eHst on tiie wharf. In a few moments all were in flames, as v ere also a large hay barn on the opjsisite side of Harrison street, a two-story frome dwelling ad joining. and a coal shed of the Black Diamond Coal Company. Tiie alarm was immediately turned on, but owing to another alarm lor a small tire a :ew blocks distant having been struck a few moments before, some delay oc curred in tiie engines reaching Hie scene and the tire had attained uncon trollable li end way. It was at once evi dent, from the cries of victims, that a number of persons were buried under tiie debris of the falien buildings and tiie utmost efforts were made to save them, with only partial success, A man named Clark, foreman for ltis don, was taken from Hie ruins after the tire was pariailv subdued burned to a crisp. Tiie bodies of Frederick Haas, a saloon-keeper, and a colored man named Brown were recovered not much disfigured. Jas. McIntyre, late ly discharged from tiie navy, died shortly after being removed. The lhmIies xvere removed to tiie morgue. Several men, women and children, badly injured, were removed to St. Mary’s Hospital for medical attention, three of whom weie Alex. Thompson, a ’longshoreman, Win. Knight, amt Henry Richards, a seafaring man. They are not exacted to recover. Sev eral others received sex ere though not necessarily fatal injuries. A numlier of persons were missing at last ac counts, and it is feared they are buri. d in the ruins. The loss of goods in the bonded warehouse will not fall short of $>tH),OOU. There was a great scarcity of xvater oxving to the small size of tiie mains in that portion of the eity, and the engines took water from Hie bav. It is thought that an abundant supply irom hydrants would have prevented much loss of property. The number ol lives lost will probably be definitely ascertained to day, when a thorough search of the rums is made. Deception or Nenator Marareut. San Franawoo. April 8. The reception of Senator Sargent last evening wax imposing. There was a large military escort, and the Senator was mot at the wharf hy a Committee of the Hoard of Su|x*rvisorH, headed by tite Mayor, and the procession marched to the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Alter tile reception there was a greet tug of friends, consisting mostly of employes in the Custom-house. ’The Senator addressed the crowd In the street, being introduced with a few re marks by Mayor Otia. Mr. Sargent defended his political course, and touched at some length on questions upon which his record had been called in question, after which a champagne discussion ensued in his apartments. As an outburstof popular enthusiasm, tlie reception could hardly be consid ered a success. DORN. In Eureka, April 8, to tbs who of K. F. Burtlott, a xon.
