Balch. Resolution* adopted by the Cnion State Convention of Nevada, January 1st, 1SIM. We, the member* of the Convention of Union men of Nevada Territory, believing that it is a matter of vital importance that the Government of the fntnre State of Nevada xhouM be admin istered by men of large capadty, nnbending in tegrity an?l unquestioned patriotism, and that it is the bonnden doty of every citizen to sustain at all times, and particularly ut this time of onr country's peril, the Government of the United States and its legally constituted anthorities. against all oppose rs. whether at home or abroad, we therefore resolve ? 1st. That the Union party affirms its devoted loyalty to the Government of the United States of America 2?L That the Union party of Nevada stands true to the country all the time, and bids eternal defiance to the rebellion and all its supporters, "backers, allies, sympathizers and friends. 3d. That thanks to the God of battles, and the immortal valor of our national arms, the war is a success; that it must never cease until the su preme authority of the Government shall be fully established throughout the borders of the repub lic, and onr flag floats in peace and triumph over every State. 4th. That inasmuch as the national ivlministra t ion is the executive reprnentative of the Gov ernment upon which, nnd* r the constitution, de volve* the duty of preserving the integrity ??f the Federal Union, and enforcing the laws throughout our entire pn bile domain, and inasmuch us this duty cannot be successfully performed without the cordial support of the prople of the loyal States, we therefore pledge to the support of the "Federal Administration, our united aid in sup pressing the preseut infamous rebellion, and en forcing the laws, at whatsoever sacrifice of blood ?and treasure, declaring that the Federal Union SH %1.L not be dissolved, or that the old flag shall VEVIK be lowered in the factfof the Union's foes. FOR UNITED STATES SENATORS, JAMES W. NYE HEN BY EDGEBTON. The Battle Ended. Bt the time that this edition of our pa per has been printed, the great struggle for and against a State Government will have ended, and the people will have decided whether we are to be citizens of a sovereign State, or the disfranchised denizens of a Territory. The matter has been very fully discussed, and the public mind was proba bly as fully prepared to act in the premi ses as it would have been if the election had been delayed to a later day. The die is by this time cast, and we now have only to await the arrival of the couriers and the telegrams which shall announce the re sult. The morning papers will probably have enough information from the princi pal precincts to enable us to form a tolera bly correct estimate of the vote. The sun will set to-night upon the decision, and it will probably rise in the morning at the hour appointed by the almanac, as punctually as if there had been no election. If it shall hove pleased the people that we shall have a State Government, we shall be much rejoiced, and the loyal people of the V nion will hail the addition of a loyal Silver Star to the constellation of free States. . If otherwise, we shall bow in submission to the popular will legally ex pressed, and endeavor to live quietly and orderly as becomes subjects of a Govern ment, good in itself although in its admin istration we have no voice or vote. We rather fancy the position of a citizen of the United States ; but other people have managed to live under Territorial Govern ments, and we think we can stand it. At any rate, it is too late to growl now, and we await with patience to learn our des tiny. Wonderful Discovert. ? The Virginia Union has stepped into the vacant shoes of the late lamented Sir Isaac Newton and become a great discoverer. It has found out, and announces, as a stunning fact, just what everybody knew before, who had read the proceedings of the State Con vention, to- wit : that Geo. W. Bloor, the candidate for State Printer, is a poor man, who has no printing office of his own, and has, for some time past, worked on the News. It has also ascertained that he will probably, if elected, have some of his work done in this office, until he can ob tain the peculiar material specially required for the work. George Bloor would have probably told John Church that fact him self, if asked, and that individual would have been under no obligations to the anonymous sneak who, moat likely, com mitted a breach of confidence in revealing the fact. Followinq ix the Footsteps. ? The anti-rebel clause in our Constitution ex cites the emulation of California, and a similar amendment has been proposed by Assemblyman Hittell. In Section 6, Ar ticle 2, he proposes to amend by adding tho words, "And the Legislature may ex clude from those privileges (of an elector) all persons who have aided or encouraged, or may aid or encourage, any rebellion or war against the Government of the United Statea." Bullion Shipped. ? The weight of bullion (hipped yesterday by Wells, Fargo A Co. w.s 619 pounds ; value, $16,168, Montgomery Street in Trouble. The unfortunate class of persons knowtt to the Pacific world as " Montgomery Street Miners," have a peck of trouble. Their woes and wailing* come to us at odd times, through the columns uf the Bay papers; but candidly speaking we must admit they they excite but little commiseration. It would seem, from all that one can gather from the papers, that the people of San Francisco have run " mining mad," and have invested to an enormous extent in mines, or in certificates of mining stock, about which they neither know anything nor seek to inform them selves. All that they know, or seek to know, concerning the matter is what they find written and printed on the face of their certificates of stock. There may be such a mine, or there may not. The chances are as strong in favor of one proposition as of the other. The fact in the case is one to be easily ascertained, but it would seem that to ascertain it not an effort is made. There are more news papers published in this Territory than in any other community on the face of the earth of the same population. These papers devoted a very considerable por tion of their space to information con cerning the numerous mines of the Terri tory, and as far as our knowledge and ex perience goes," ttie descriptions of and in formation relative to the mine*, are care fully collected and strictly reliable. The purchaser of worthless " wild cat" has only his wilful blindness to blame. If a person, remote by hundreds of miles from the silver mines of this Territory, will invest his money in what purports to be mining shares, without making an effort to ascertain the primary fact that such a mine exists, he or she deserves no sym pathy, if the money so invested be utterly lost. Again : A vast deal of this whining and moaning comes from persons who have invested their surplus funds in the stock of mines which do actually exist, and which are in all probability valuable. Their mines, however, are undeveloped, and their development will inevitably cost a vast outlay. This is a fact, which the speculator in silver mines ought to be aware when he enters that field of specu lation. The individual who finds mining stocks offered in the market at from one dollar to ten or twelve dollars a foot, knows, or ought to know, that he is buy ing into an undeveloped mine, the proof of the real value of which is to cost a vast deal of money ; and that the fact of its richness is only to be ascertained by months of labor and the outlay of thoms and3. The man of small capital, who hopes to at one day become an owner in a paying mine, must not exhaust his means in the purchase of undeveloped mines. He should fully consider the in evitable assessments which must follow, and confine his investments to such a number of shares as his income will be able to maintain. That is the course pur sued by people who know what they are about, and who expect to be owners in a mine when it becomes a paying institu tion. The class of people who buy mmm; stock, with the expectation that its value will increase by mere lapse of time, without the expenditure of labor, whether those persons are professional stockbrokers, or innocent, credulous hard-working people, who only mine on Montgomery street with their surplus hard earnings, are simply gamblcrs and nothing more or less. They put their monev down on this or that certificate o stock, as the "bucker" at faro does upon a card. One, as much as the other, has a fair right to expect to double or quadru ple his money. Thousands of good, wor thy, religious people, who would expect a shower of fire and brimstone should they bet a dollar on the " case king, " are unwittingly doing precisely the same thing every dty on Montgomery street. It is simply " the chances, " and the one is no more of a " non-producer" than the other. It is from this class of stock jramblers that the bitter complaints anse that fill the papers of the Bay City. Here is a specimen from the Morning Call, There can be no doubt, from a glance at the notices of sales advertised in the papers, that the crisis long dreaded by holders of mining stock is upon us. Assessments are becoming onerous ? they are crashing everybody, and man* are allowing their stock to go to sale, rather than attempt to keep pace with die rapid accumulation of assessments, this is the foreseen result of the senseless mania which for a vear past has pervaded all classes of people to* become possessed of extensive interests in a large number of mines, instead of confining themselves to a moderate est in one or two mines, the prospect of which has been approved to their judgment by care ful examination or reliable information. How many men in this city, with an income which would not justify a speculative expenditure of over fifteen or twenty dollars per month, have denied themselves and their families of com forts, and even necessaries, in order to pay assessments on stock in different mines, amounting to nearly their whole revenue . This is a perfect case in point, and, no doubt, expresses the condition of things in that city truthfully. As to the " sense less mania" portion of it we, however, enter a mild demurrer. The desire to ac quire wealth is a natural one, and by no mams senseless; and the possession of a paying silver mine is a broad and easy road to wealth. But that turnpike to for tune is not made by nature, and its grad ing and levelling is a costly process. A silver mine has many necessary and in dispensable adjuncts, such as deep shafts, long tunnels, railroads, cars, steam engines, houses, machinery, etc., to say nothing of a mill of its own. All these adjuncts cost much money, and he who cannot pay for them cannot have a mine. Real estate, and large, fine buildings erected thereon in large cities, are good things to have, and pay a fine revenue, but they cannot be owned and built without money, and poor people must try and do without them. The proper course for people to pursue who look forward to ownership in silver is to moderate their investments to the proportion of their ability to support their stocks. To those who are merely trafficking in stocks, with the idea of buy ing low and selling high, or in other words gambling in stocks, we have nothing to ?ay. Tney are their own masters. Dxadly Wupojii.? Henry Johnson, the well known detective police officer, was arrested and examined for carrying a deadly weapon in San Francisco, on Fri day. Accused had obtained an appoint ment as Deputy Constable. The case is made up to test the question whether or not such officers may carry weapons. Further arguments were to have been heard yesterday. True Of False to the Country. We are of opinio* that the patriotic feeling of Americans, at this crisis of the country's danger, has hardly risen to the hight and fervor in California that it has attained throughout the Atlantic States. There from the fact that our brethren are nearer to the scene of action, and are every day called upon to make sacrifices for the Nation's defence and pre servation. the great question involved in the war is brought home to a greater de gree to that popular heart. What we mean to say is, that our Eastern friends are more intensely patriotic. Far removed as we are from the scene of action, we do not fully realize the enormity of the guilt of treason ? the baseness of the traitor. For our own future safety and good, we too must come up to the red heat mark of intense patriotism. There are men among us who are false to the Nation ? who are its deadly enemies make light of and re joice at its misfortunes, and still pretend to have rights and privileges ? even to the holding of office. We must teach these men a lesson, which it seems they have not learned, viz.: That none but loyal American citizens are entitled to a voice in the affairs of the country, and that those who are not loyal must take back seats. There Is too much paltering with treason in California, in tolerating the boldness of this class of men. They should be made to understand the position that they occupy, and to feci the conse quences of falsity to the Government in this her hour of need. Else, if there is no distinction made between the true and false men ? between patriots and traitors ? the contest might as well be abandoned and an acknowledgement made that trea son is no crime. But it is a crime, and one of the darkest dye ? one that should ostracise a man forever among his fellow citizcns. We should remember how these men would act had they the power ? how they acted towards their mere poli tical opponents when they did have it ? and for our self-preservation learn a les son therefrom. No man who is untrue to the country in this hour of trial and trou ble should ever hereafter receive an office at the hands of the people ; he should be marked as one who has forfeited his rights under this Governmect ? as a person to whom it would be dangerous to entrust power. We must come up to this stand ard, and the sooner we do so the better. ? Sierra Hem. The Coming Epochs. ? Three impor tant periods are looked for before the final dissolution of the cosmical universe. Re ferring to them in a reversed order, they are : The last judgment, the millenium, and the advent of the man who it to raise the Aquila. The latter event alone being within the appointment of men, partakes of that uncertainty which is said to ap pertain to all human affairs. For weeks the chronologist has peered through the misty future and seen only a tangled lab yrinth of vexatious questions ? an array of " suggested plans " from the feasible to the most impossible ; Government par ties, underwriters and contractors, with a crowning effigy representing the Aquila surmounted by a " committy " appointed by the Chamber of Commerce, variously engaged. One taking the height of the masts and declination of the vessel by tri angulations and a plumbline; another endeavoring to ascertain what day of the month the Fourth of July will tall on ; a third, troubled with feet on the brain, trying to solve the question as to whether the " Comstock " and " Grosch " can be s^l to be in apogee, perigee, or in con junction and so un. All these have passed before the vision of the chronolo gist in a dead lock, but he sees not the Comanche afloat. However, we have hope. The day dawns from the East, and the coming steamer brings out the man who is to? raise the Aquila r No ? su perintend the work. Well, even that is consoling, and we shall look hopefully for something to be done, before we are compelled to announce in our shipping list as follows: "Arrived ? Confederate steamer Alabama, Semmes master ; cargo, Greek fire, etc." ? S. F. Journal. An Interesting Document. ? The fol lowing advice to his country ? the origi nal manuscript of which is now in the possession of a gentleman of Washington ? was found among the papers of James Madison, many years after his decease : " Advice to Uy Country. ? As this advice, if it ever sees the light, will not do it till I am no more, it may be considered as issu ing from the tomb, where truth alone can be respected, and the happiness of man alone consulted. It will be entitled, therefore, to whatever weight can be de rived from good intentions, and from the experience of one who served his country in various stations through a period of forty years ; who espoused in his youth, and adhered to through life, the cause of liberty, and who bore a part in most of the great transactions which will consti tute an epoch of its destiny. The advice nearest ray heart, and deepest in my con viction, is that the Union of the States be cherished and perpetuated. Let the open enemy to it be regarded as a Pandora with the box open, and the disguised one as the serpent, creeping with his deadly wiles into Paradise." A Libkbtixe Foiled. ? Last evening, a young girl, about fourteen rears of age, left her home under pretext" of visiting a friend. Her father suspecting a liaison fol lowed, find had the mortification of wit nessing the confirmation of his suspicions. The young creature was met at an appoint ed placc by a male companion, snd they entered the "Mission cars. The vigilant pa rent, however, was close at hand, and be fore the cms had started, he knocked the would-be seducer down, and returned with his erratic daughter to the parental roof. Thus the young creature is for once deliv ered from the toils of the destroyer ; but when the will has once yielded resistance, and acquiesced in the intention to commit error, the moral barriers are removed, and sooner or later the victim is taken. ? S. F. Journal, 16 th. Ay Alleged Official Dbfaclter. ? Information having been laid before the Indian Commissioner in Washington, that George M. Hanson, late Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Northern California, has secretly made way with, or appropriated to his private uses, certain goods belong ing to the United States, his successor in office, Steele, has been directed by tele graph to inquire into the affair, and, if necessary, to causc the arrest of Hanson. It is alleged, I understand, that the goods in question were conveyed to Nevada Ter ritory from Hanson's residence, at Yuba City, California ; but it may be possible that the charges thus made are incorrect. A thorough sifting will be made of the case.? Cor. Sac. Union. Mails. ? A. A. Sargent asked that the overland maQ matter should be divided about Carson ? that for Northern Califor nia taking the Hennoss Pasa route, and the Sacramento and Southern mail taking the Placerville route. San Francisco ob jected, on the ground that it would detain the mails one day to have them over hauled there, and that objection governed. The division of the service is postponed for the present, but at the instance of Senator Conn ess, as the Union' t corres pondent says, bids will be asked in the next schedule for carrying the mails be tween Nevada Territory and California over the Harness Pass route. Cork mattresses are now manufactured in New York. They are said to be cool, clean, do not harbor vermin, and make good life-preservers in case of need. BY TELEGRAPH! 8FKCIAL TO THE GOLD HILL NEWS.

Deserters say that starvation threatens the rebel armies. General ICilpatrick has gone to Wash ington. Rumor assigns him a new and important command. A Washington letter says that a co operative movement will be made on Richmond when spring opens, by a col umn on the Peninsula, or south of James river, under Hancock, aided by Butler's forces, and by the main column on the direct line from Washington. Hancock will command one of the corps into which the army will be consolidated ; Sedgwick will command the second, and a general not of the Army of the Potomac, the third. Free Arkansas Movement.

SAN FRANCIS LO DISPATCH. , - [ DISPATCH TO THIS MOKXI.NG S UXIOS. ? J San Francisco, Jan. 18. Miscellaneous. ?\Vra. C. Taylor, a newspaper reporter, died of consumption to-day. Capt. Merritt, of the wrecking party which was sent out by the underwriters, says he can raise the Aquila, and will com mence work as soon ls the contract is signed. Details of the Heenan fight, as brought by the Golden City, confirm the tele graphic account, except that the fight lasted thirty-four minutes. Four deserters from the Saginaw at Manznnillo, were arrested by the Ameri can Consul, Blake, and put in stocks, and are now awaiting the return of that vessel. After a temporary release they were again returned to their position, when all but one complied, and he was shot through the heart by the Consul. A mob threat ened his life for the act, and he was placed under arrest by the Mexican authorities. At a preliminary investigation the Consul pleaded self-defense ; but the Court found lie was not menaced, and he will be sent to San Francisco, charged with murder in the first degree.

General Burns IDE. ? Though it ap pears that this zealous and energetic offi cer will continue to serve the country, the announcement of his probable return to East Tennessee seems to have been noth ing more than the conjecture of a corre spondent. A later despatch speaks of either Hancock or Burnside organizing a corps of fifty thousand men " for special service," the requisite authority having been obtained from the War Department ; and inasmuch as the recruiting of a for mer corps in the same States, for a similar purpose, by the same General is referred to, we conclude that Bumsidc is the man. Hancock has never discharged a duty of that kind ; he was attached to the Army of the Potomac. But where can this Burnside expedition oe intended to strike? Texas is occupied. Mobile is the next prize of Banks and Farragut. Gilmore will soon burn down Charleston and be free to turn his arms against Savannah. The coast of North Carolina is occupied, but great results arc still to be accom plished by the march of a large army to Welden or Raleigh, and Burnside is fa miliar with the scene ol his early tri umphs. In fact, that is the most promis ing field for a leader who knows how to move rapidly and to inspire his followers with enthusiasm. If we can retain East Tennessee and plant a formidable corps at Weldon, we shall at lastflget the rebel army in Virginia into a very awkward po sition and will have a fair prospect of se curing that Jerusalem of the Army of the Potomac, the Capital of the Confederacy.

James Brocks', of the' Exprtu, membter of Congress, from New York, recently g??e recherche entertainment at his house in Washington to the members of the pressi who were then in Washington, representing all the leading newspapers in the country' from Maine to California. The two original Washington correspondents are Henry King man and James Brooks, the first of whom came here in that capacity in 1831, and the other followed in 1832, ?? co-respondent of the Portland Aiicertu r. Til ? entertain ment the other night br. ught toget >er seve ral generations of acwsp per coire .mndents, from those whose expe.ience n i back for more than tliirtv years to those w u had just began to try their (stetl pen) pinions, and soar in the realms of (tell graph. c) fancy. ? In the days of old, about whlC i our seniors told us, New-Orleans was fa (her off than California now is, aside from the telegraph even; for a letter to tho old Btdlctin was published in its columns in twenty-eight days from Washington, and nearly three months elapsed before the leisurely corres pondent at the Capital saw his offspring in the immortality of type. A letter traveling to New York rested on the wajr o' nights ana consumed four days in the joumey. The telegraph was undreamed of, and when some enterprising newspaper men, despising the slow coaches of the time, got up a "horse express" to Philadelphia and New York, they were looked upon with profound sus picion. Daniel Webster wrote letters for the newspapers then, though it was kept a secret. But the times are out of joint ; we have no more Websters in Congress ; but, somehow, "the pestiferous newspaper cor respondents," as an honorable Senator called them the other day, have got in, and give nice little entertainments to their old com panions in ink-shed.
