Our dispstches to-day contain nothing of startling importance. The President's health is improung, and his message was probably delivered to-day. The Secretary of the Treasury will make no further issue of legal tenders. Longstreet, repulsed by Burnside, is retreating to Virginia. ? The rebels arc finding fault with King JelFs Cabinet, liar dee, with Bragg's whipped army, is falling back slowly. The officers of the House are elected. California Legislature.

With the whole cotton crop and wealth of the South at his disposal, and the friendship of mauy European power?, he has accomplished nothing abroad. His foreign poliev has been a stupid failure. He has pcnitytted himself to be overreached and outmanaged in everything. His policy 3 1 home, while proving him to be strong in s*ne respects, has shown him to be weak, mean ana malignant in others. He is cold, selfish, and supremely ambitious ; and under the cover of outward sanctity and patriotism, flows concealed the strongest vein of hy pocrisy and demagogueism. He has never bc*eu up to the magnitude of the undertaking. He refused troops for the war in May, 1S61, bccause he did not ' know that they would be needed.' His idea, at tirst, seems to have been that hostilities would soon cease, and he bent his energies for a cheap war. His preparations and outtit were, accordingly, contracted and parsimonious. Awakened io a sense of his error, his next aim seems to have been to compter his foes, and put down every man that had crossed his pathway in life-*1 Corno Correspondence. COM). Lros COt'NTY, Dec. 6th, 13fi3. Eds. Gold Hill Xt.vs.? Otw new town has Kvn the center ot' considerable excitement during the past week, such as is liable to occur at any time in a locality surrounded like this, by so many le?lg?s of gold and silver bearing rock. About one and a half miles from town, near the roaj leading to the Whitman claim, there are some very large. white looking cropping*, somewhat re ?. mbling quart A s,. mtKh so that it lias frequently been located, Itsnppearaace, however, was such that no one had faith enough in it to expend any labor uporr. or make any tests of it. It has there fore lain undisturbed uutil last Tuesday, when a party of live or more speculative prospector* brnneht iu some pieces of the cropping* and con cluded to stake euough on the ledge to have an as say of it made by Mr. Solomon. The result was jtu iounced the uext evening at S172. Then it was that the enterprising locators began to count their wealth by teus of thousands. The next , morning four men went to work blasting down and breaking up the big cropping*, wiiicb, on bev i.ig opened, presented a very singular and beaujfc. fttl appearance. It had all the various shade# gt brown, purple, blue and black set in the whole quartz. These, the dozens of lookers-on Oe c.ared to be rich in chlorides of, sil ver. Many locations have since been made, as extensions as well as upon new ledges of a similar character, which have been heretofore passed by as worthless, but are now considered as rich. The rock is very well de s -ribed on the eight page of a small work, com piled by Wm. I'. Blake. entitled " Description of the varwxrs silver ores and minerals,'' Oue thing is a fact ; if the chalk, or quartz, or whatever it may be. is as rich ;is the assay indicated, the loca tors were uot at all fnsane when they commenced e muting on the happiness that woirld result from b?ing released from daily toil, and the untold lux uries that those tens of thousands would furnish them. There are croppings enough above the ground to keep two tweurv-stamp mills in oper ation more than a year. The ledge crops out over two hundred feet in width, and is sttpposed by many to be the Whitman ledge, as its course w <uld seem t-> indicate. The Company has in corporated. with a capital stock of 4160,000 in 1,600 shares, by the name of tlie Crosmau Gold and Silver Mill and Mining Company, oa the White Point I.edge. The tirst northeasterly ex tension is incorporated as the Lee and Western Company. They have also commeuced work. The tirst southerly extension is known as the Jones Company. May the fond hopes ot the loca tors be realized, for we understand they are mostly poor, sober men. ? Our mill is expected to start in a few days. Rock is being hauled to it uow. %* Another California Martyr. ? California has contributed another name to the bright list of heroes who have laid down: their lives in the defense of their Government. General William Sanders, who received a mortal wound while leading a charge iu one of the recent engagements near Knoxville, was a native of Mississippi, and is stated to have been a graduate of West Point. From the first breaking oat of the war he ha? been actively engaged on the side of the Govern invnt, and aiihongb quite a young man. his cour age and military ability have woa for him dis tinction and rapid promotion. At the time of his death he held the commission of a Brigailler Gen et aL Ills p arena and sister) reside in Sua Fran cisco. Another Sctr Aoaisst the Opkir? The mother of John Jessup, the man who was killed inG'?W Hill, in 1 $50. by Sides, is now in this city, for the purpose of settling np the estate of her son. Mr*. JAsup. in company with a nephew, left Springfield, Missouri; several months ago, and came to this Territory fbr the purpose above stated. It is claimed that Jessup, at the time he was killed, owned large interests in the most val uable mining claims in this vicinity, and among others, two hundred feet in the Ophir, which his heirs are now entitled to. Mrs. Jessup and her nephew are bow engaged in collecting such facts jw ibey can, calculated to lead to the recovery of this ground ; and it is quite probable that the Ophir will, in a very short time, be called upon to defend itself against a well-founded suit for two hundred feet of thai ground. The heirs expect to meet with no difficulty in proving that Jewup vwawl this ground at the time of hi# death, and with very UiUs difficulty La recovering It.? C*io? 1 1 in ? Hoy. . x hatl The Bulletin still plays upon its harp of one string about the taxation of the mines. The fact of the question having been passed upon by the Convention, makes no difference with the editor. It now goes in for defeating the Constitution if " trammeled with a pro vision" to tax the mines. ? Very well. There are honest differences of opinion as to the propriety of adopting a State Constitution at this time at all ; as well as objections to the Constitution . in its p-escnt form. The Bulletin,' however, assumes a new style of attack, which is, that one may properly vote for the adoption of the Constitution, and at the same time,- in voting fbr members of the Legislature, vote 'for no man who is in favor of taxing the mines* We ean't see. it. If the Constitution is adopted, the member^ of the Legislature will be bound by it, and will be sworn to carry its provisions into effeot. The Ninth Article is as binding upon them as any other, and that Article reads as ? follows ; 4 ARTICLE IX. TAXATION. SKCTIOV I. The Legislature akall provide by law for a uuiform uml equal rate of assessment and luxation, and shall prescribe such regulation as shall secure a jost valuation for taxation of all property, both real and personal, including mints and mixing proptrt y ; excepting such only as may be exempted by law for municipal. educational, literary, acientido, religious or charitable purposes. What are the non-taxers of mines, whom ' the Bulletin would have elected to the Legis lature, to do, when a law for the levying of taxes comes up for their action ? We have an idea that if a State Government is to be had, taxation will be a consequence very naturally following. The Legislature are peremptorily commanded to levy a tax for the support of the State Government, and the species of property which shall be taxed are distinctly enumerated. A law which should tax one of those species of property, and exempt another, would be perfectly null. \V<? wonder if that proposition will be dis / Constitutional Convention. /The Committee on Supplied made a report which was referred to the Committee of the Whole. The amount of printing to date is SI, WW. , The special committee on the memorial to Con gress reported the same correctly engrossed. f The Convtution went into Committee of the Whole on the second part of the Schedule. Mr. Hite moved to insert after the eighth sec tion. a section from the engrossed report of the Committee ou .Schedule, which reads as follows : " SfcC. ? . At the time of the submission of this Constitution to a vote of the people, there shall be elected all the State officers, Judges of the Supreme, District and County Courts, a Clerk of the Supreme Court, numbers of the Legisla ture, and *u Representative to Congress. Until otherwise provided by the Legislature, the appor tionment of Senators and Assembly men among the different counties shall be as follows : Doug j las, one Senator, two Assemblymen; Esmeralda, two Senators, four AssciaUlymen ; Humboldt, two Senators, three Assemblymen ; Lander, two Senators, three Assemblymen ; Lyou and Church ill. two Seuatoes, four Assemblymen ; Ormsbv, two Seuators, four Assemblymen ; Storey, four Senators, twelve Assemblymen; Washoe, two Senators, three Assemblymen." After a very short discussion, Mr. Kite's amend ment was adopted. Mr. Larrowe moved to amend section 5 by ' striking out tirst and inserting third, si as to make the election fall ou the third Tuesday. Carried. Mr. Hite moved to amend by inserting after section 8. a new section, as follows : SEC. 10. If this Convention shall be ratified by the people, the Governor may couvene the Legis lature tor the purpose of electing two L'uitid States Scua'ors. This was subsequently amended so as to read " shall couvene." Section 5 was amended so as to read, after the word "Constitution," " and fur the purpose of ! electing State officers and members of the Legis [ Injure." Also, after the word "fact," in tile eighth section, the words " and of the State offi cers elected." Mr. Larrowe moved to amend, in the sccotid section, so as to insert, '? and for the election of all S??ate officers, Supreme, District and County Judges, nu mbers of the Legislature, uud a lCep reseutative to Congress." Mr. Kiutead accepted Mr. Larrowe's motion, and it was adopted. The verbal amendment in the eighth section was also made. Mr. Larrowe moved that the Committee rise, report progress, ask leave to sit again, and a.-k the reference of the Article to the Committee, with instructions to report at 2 o'clock P. M., as amended by the Committee of the Wuole. The Committee of the Whole rose, its report was concurred in, and the reference of the article made in accordance with the recommendation. in the afternoon a further report was made by the Committee on Schedule, and a section of the Schedule, providing for printing 600 copies of the Con-titutioj was adopted, the printing to be su pervised by the President and A. J. Marsh, Offi cial Reporter. The Secretary's compensation was discussed all the afternoon, but no vote was takup; A committee of five was appoiuted to exMfoe the Constitution, as passed, and report tfUnorrow if any additional sections are required. [communicated.] The Constitution. The week will close the labors of the Con stitutional Convention ? the Constitution will then be before the people for its consideration and adoption, or rejection. What will be its late we will not undertake to predict. There are many matters for con sideration and clauses that array ditferent elements against it. We, no doubt, all have a pride in being a State, but then are we able and willing to gratify that pride at so heavy an expense ? The taxing of the mining in terest will array a formidable force again*t it. The justice of this course is applauded by some, and disapproved by others, and in this opposition is where we have our fears. There is a principle in this, against which our miners have fought for years in Califor nia, and we must expect they have not been yet eradicated. The Convention have un doubtedly done too much legislation to be generality satisfactory. Instead of leaving detail for the represen tatives of the people, they have entered into the minute of State atfairs, leaving but little, that a change of times and circumstances can alter. In this matter we will point out salaries, which to our mind is quite out of proportion. Take, for instance, a Comptrol ler who is to receive S'6,000 per year, while the Treasurer who has to give bonds in the sum of several hundred thousand dollars is only to receive half the sum, and so with others. Let us look before we leap ? jump ing into an expense of hundreds of thousands per annum is worthy our consideration. ? When all is complete, and the Constitution comes before us as it is to be voted upon, we will then define our position for or against it. The Battle of Gettysburg. ? General* Meade's detaled report of the buttle of Gettys burg, dated October 1st, was officially premulga ted on the 11th of November. It gives as a rea son for the delay in making it, the failure of re ceiving the reports of several of the corps and di vision commanders, who were severely wounded iu battle, and says : "The result of the campaign may be briefly stated in the defeat of the eneiny at Gettysburg, his compulsory evacuation of Pennsylvania and Maryland, and his withdrawal from the upper valley of the Shenandoah ; and in the capture of 3 gang, 41 standards aad 13,621 prisoners, 24,97c! small arms were collected on the battle lield. Our own losses were very severe, amounting, as will be seen by tho accompanying ?eport, to 2,834 killed, 13,709 wounded, and 6,t>43 missing? :n all, 33,186." General Meade adds his tribute to the herioc bravery ^of the whole of the army, officers and men. * It is a terrible thought to remember that nothing cair be forgotten. I have somewhere read that not an oath is uttered that does not continue to vibrate through all time, in the wide-spreading current of sound ? not a prayer lisped that its Tecord is not to be found stamped on the laws of Nature by the in delibie seal of die Almighty will. ?

In his Message, President Lincoln con siders the Emancipation Proclamation as a fact. He does not and will note adopt a poli cy which fails to give the slave a vested right in himself. The Secretary of the Treasury suggests a still further tax <Jn whisky and tobacco. Re ceipts from this source from the last year will fall short sixty millions. The report of the Secretary will contain no recommendation for the further issue of legal tenders. The President is much better. His disease is a mild form of varioloid. A dispatch to the Times says : Major Gen. French has been relieved from his command in the Army of the Potomac, and placed under arrest. He is charged with base mis conduct in the recent atfair at Mill Run. Money is active at seven per cent.; Ster ling easier at ti-li ; Gold irregular, opening at 49, advancing to 50, aud closing steady at Richmond paper? of December oth had been received. Longstreet having made an unsuccessful attack on Burnside, was retreat ing to Virginia. Uen. Bushrod Johnson succeeded in effect ing a junction with Long-street without loss. Hardee only temporarily commands Bragg' s army. Joe Johnson will take permanent command. A rebel lamentation comes from Rich mond, and the Whig calls on Davis to call wiser atfd more experienced men to his cabi net. Gen. "Washburne's command is moving towards Matagorda, Texas, with every pros pect of capturing it. Cincinnati, December 8.? A Chattanooga special dispatch, dated December 7th, says Hardee is slowly falling back with Bragg's whipped men. The mountains of East Icn uessee are filled with rebel deserters and stragglers. Washington, December Sth, ? A commit tee appointed to wait on the President, re ported that he would communicate his mes sage at half past twelve to-morrow in the House. E. McPherson, of Pennsylvania, was elect ed Clerk to-day ; Ordway, Sergeant-at-Arms, and King, of Minnesota, Postmaster. Credentials of Representatives from Vir ginia were refused. The House passed unan imously without explanation or debate. The resolutions of Washburne, of Illinois, return ing thanks to Grant, his officers and men, and providing that, in the name of the peo ple, a medal be struck for Grant. Cox, of Ohio, offered a resolution provid ing for immediate exchange of soldiers. Laid over. Arnold, of Illinois, gave notice of bills to prohibit slavery in jhe Territories forever, and to repeal that portion of the Enrollment Act, which discharges on payment of three hundred dollars. Sachamento, December 9th.? The Legis lative joint convention counted the vote for Governor yesterday. It stood, Low, 64,323 ; Downey, 44,492. Low's inauguration takes place to-morrow. [FROM THE MORNING PAPERS.] San Francisco, Dec. 8. Cairo, Dec. 7. ? A rebel force under Lee and Chalmers, estimated at 4,000, attacked Colonel Hatch's command at Wolf river bridge, near Lagrange, Tenn., on the 3d. The tight was desperate for four hours, when the rebels were repulsed. Among their killed are several oiticers. Hatch's forcc consisted of 1,000 cavalry and 700 negroes, with one piece of artillery. The day before some rcbeMorces made a rush on Salisbury and tore up the railroad track for a mile and burned a quantity of c-ttjn. A dispatch from Memphis, of the 5th, says the rebel loss in the tight at Wolf River Bridge on the 3d, will probably reach 150 killed, wounded and missing, so far as heard from: Ours was 3 killed, 40 wounded and 42 missing. Cincinnati, Dec. 7. ? Nothing from Knox ville. Sherman's forces are pretty near lip by this time. Information of Longstreet's retreat is hourly expected. A Chattanooga telegram says Sherman's expedition had Longstreet hemmed iu with a poor chancc of escape. A special agent t:> the Indian country an ticipates trouble with the Mountain Crows, who are determined the miners shall not ex plore the Yellow Stone river. Mexican news to November 21st has been received. The French occupied Querataro without resistance. U. S. Ago had been ap pointed Commander-in-Chief by Juarez, vice Convert, who rt f s d to be c mtrolled by the Juarez Government. Doblado also refused to obey Juarez. The French are marching on Sau Luis Potosi, where a final concentra tion is to take place. Account! through Frcnch sources look like a gradual breaking up of Mexican plans for resistance. [From the Sacramento Union of yesterday.J Washington, Dec. 6. ? Culpepper is held by our cavalry. The enemy have two regi ments of infantry at Fredericksburg. Hamp ton's cavalry is between that point and Or ange Court House, guarding the lower fords of the Ilapidan and Rappahannock. The railroad from Aquia Creek to Falmouth is in perfcct order, w ith the exception of the bridge at Potomac creek and single rails near Fal mouth Station. New York, Dec. 7. ? A special dispatch to the Triaune, dated Washington, Decem ber 6th, says : Though there has been much ferment and apprehension with regard to the certificates of members of the House and the action of the Clerk thereupon, there is no reason to doubt that the House will be or ganized in good season to-morrow, by the choice of Colfax as Speaker. I doabt if any States will be excluded by the Clerk ; but at all events there will be votes enough for Col fax t" elect him. Probably no otlier officers will be chosen till Tuesday. Officers from the Army of the Potomac concur in the opinion that an attack could and should have been made upon the rebels at Mile Rud. If one hadbeon made at first, the loss would not have been so great on our side as afterward ; but success was ccrtain at any time. It is rumored that charges will be prefarred against one, at least, of the ?corps commanders. An army correspondent furnishes the fol lowing information ; On SaturdaV afternoon, December 5th, the rebels made a feint of crossing at several fords of the Rapidan.? Oar forces kept on the alert. Everything was in readiness to retreat if an assault had been made by superior forces. During the night the enemv crossed over two or three regiments at each ford, and took possession of the north bank of the Rapidan and our old signal station, so they can now overlook all our movements while we remain posted as at present. General Meagher, who was with the army as a visitor to his old brigade, was captured in citizens' clothes, near Mile Run, during the recent engagement, and is Bow in the hands of the enemy. Foktkess Monroe, Dec. 6. ? The follow ing is from the Richmond papers: Charleston, Dec. 4. ? A slow fire was kept up to-day on Sumter, and James and Sullivan Islands. The enemy have not re newed their fire on the city, but are mount ing more guns on Wagner, bearing on the city, and have also unmasked a new battery. Reese River Items., We clip the following items of mining in- ? telligence from the Reveille of Saturday : Improving. ? Brooks' mill, in Clifton, has been enclosed by thick granite walls, and a roof is now being put on. It will be a hand some building. The Davbntort. ? This is the name of a ledge recently struck by H. 0. Ward, and is situated near the top of the hill, on the south side of Coral Canon. Although but very little work has as yet been done uv>n it, we learn that ten dollars a foot has beffi offered * ' >. 4 . and refused for one hundred feet. The ori ginal locators have divided the claim, and formed two companies. The "Chapman" and " Davenport." A Week's Cri'SHING.? We have obtained some facts in regard to a week's crushing at the Fountain Mill in Jacobaville, which will astonish even many, of our own citizens ? Some Yankee Blade ore yielded $423 to the ton, the bullion ffom which can .be soon at Havne's saloon in Austin. Amador ore yielded still more, but we did not obtain the exacj figures. ? The Emma Funston, the rich rock being taken from which we alluded to in a recent issue, worked up to the enor mous sum of $2,700 per ton. During the week this milf has worked ore from the Nonesuch,' Marengo, Samantha, Dunkirk and Silver Eagle, but complete returns have not yet been made. It may be stoteO, how ever, with a certainty, that the yield of none will fall below $200 per ton, and in some will be near $2,000. Washington District. ? Day before yes terday we were shown some very fine speci mens from this District by Mr. H.C. Patrick, from whom we also gained some information as to the progress of mining in that section. The specimens shown us do not exhibit as much clorides and bromides as the quartz in this vicinity, but snlphurets abound and the ledges are iarge. The famous New Hope is between seventy-five and one hundred feet in width at a depth of five feet. The San Fer nando upon which, adjoining each other, are situated the claims of the San Fernando and Ohio Companies is fifteen feet wide. The Geneva a late discovery is twenty feet, the La Cruz ten, ana the Mary Blind twelve feet, and the surface rock of all of them looks to be very fine. The Trinidad ledge is being work ed, and a tunnel being run for the Mary Blind. Mr. Patrick says that several hun dred persons will remain in this district du ring the Winter prosecuting work as far as possible. The weather up to this time has been very pleasant. ?
