THE GREENBACK QUESTION. This appears to be at present the all-ab sorbing topic of public conversation. At the meeting on Saturday night for the nomination of delegates to the Constitu tional Convention, the subject of the cur rency was very extensively discussed. Most of the speakers who were called out favored the adoption of the greenback currency, l'he discussion being somewhat out of order at that meeting, the consider ation of the question was postponed until next Saturday evening, when a grand turn-out will be held, and the matter fully discussed by those best posted and most directly interested therein. As some ac tion of a positive and definite character may possibly be taken on that occasion, it would be well for citizens to ponder the matter carefully and seriously in the mean time, and be present at the meeting pre pared to vote intelligently upon the ques tion. The Virginia papers generally favor the proposition. It is evident to us that any action or even agitation of the ques tion of substituting legal tender notes for our present metallic currency, until Cali fornia as a State, and its people as indivi duals have adopted the change, will be pernicious to our interests. AVe shall, therefore, advocate the let-alone policy, until California has acted in the matter, j and decry the present talk, which wili j avail nothing. When our leading import- j ers, bankers, and monied men are ready, | we will advocate the measure. And in J thus deciding, we give it as our opinion j that such a change is inevitable, within j the next two years, but to-day it is pre- j mature, unadvisable, and injurious to all our best interests, mining and mercantile. I THE EASTERN NEWS. The telegraphic dispatches received , since outs of Saturday last, have not been j of that importance which the telegrams j of that date led us to expect. There is no j intelligence of moment from the Army of i the Potomac later than the 19th, Kt which time the situation of the grand armies was | not materially changed, and no great j battle was reported, such as from the dis- j patch of the 18th seemed imminent, al- I though quite a sharp fight took place on j the 19th. General Banks has been ordered I to report at Xew Orleans ; which looks as ! though his unsuccessful campaign was i likely to shelve him. The Richmond Examiner thinks that the defeat of the rebel army of Virginia would burst up the Confederate organization. "We believe you, my boy." The Xew York World and Journal of Cemmsrce, hoaxed by a bogus proclamation, which they were in cautious enough to publish, have been j closed by the Provost Marshal. The J Herald discovered the hoax in time to j suppress its edition. Sherman on the ' 19th, was still pounding away at John- j ston near Kingston, Ga. Sempa, Flori da, was captured by the Federal forces on j the 4th. Averill has been whipping the j rebels in Western Virginia. Sam Medary j has been arrested. "The cause is not j stated," says the dispatch, but the " mat- j ter" is, of course, the CritU. MISREPOHTED. A. B. Paul, Esq., requests us to state that in the remarks made by him at the meeting at Virginia on Saturday night, he is grossly misreported by the reporter of the Message. Among other misrepresent ations he points to the following : " Mr Paul did not think the financial affair* of the nation were conducted with as much wisdom an they might be, for he said that Mr. Chase** ST* tern had kill**! all the banks in the Eastern States." Mr. Paul says that he said no such thing. He said that Mr. Chase's system was one of the grandest schemes ever de vised, inasmuch as it had effectually killed off all the unreliable banks in the Eastern States. The following remarks, attributed to him by the Message, he never made, and i i a fabrication of the brain of the re porter: " He bad bodied The subject of greenback* pretty thoroughly, and an soon as be was con Tiuc*?d tbat he could make mont-y by it. he should favor the adoption of grerubacks as currency." It was stated at the meeting that they would consult the bankers. Mr. Paul said he did not want them to consult the bankers, but to consult the people of the Territory. He desires to express to the Message his pivf?ence that if that paper goes to the trouble to report him at all, they will do so com-ctly. THAT CHALLENGE. The Union yesterday morning in copy ing the challenge made by (iold Hill on the Sanitary Fund matter, makes an error which changes the character of the article materially. The challenge properly reads : ?* If aor city or town in the Territory will, within thirty day*. raiM a sus eqn^l in propor tion to its voting population, taking the Consti tution*! vote ax the ba*it, and pay H to the Trea surer of the Sanitary Cotninixaion of iu county. Almarin B. P.ial, President of the -torey County Sanitary Com minion, will present that city or town with a twentv-four foot American En.?ign. <le.M The printer in the Union has made it read " the Treasurer of the Sanitary Fund of this county." It is not expected that any town in any other county would raise a fund and send it to Storey county and waiTe for its own county the credit justly its due. Each county has its own Sani tary Commission appointed to receive con tributions. The Union will please make the correction that the matter may be un derstood properly. Miss E** a Hardixob.? This favorite and eloquent lecturer will speak again this evening at Odd Fellows' Hall. The sub ject, "The Battle," will be a reading from Victor Hugo's famous description of the Battle of Waterloo. An Address upon the War will also be delivered. JUDGE LOCKE. More than two week* ago. Judge Locke, of the Supreme Court, was charged through the columns of the press, with acts of fraud and corruption of a charac ter calculated to make the popular hair stand. The people arc not willing to be lieve charges of so terrible a nature against I one whose character has thus far stood unimpeached, and the public judgment was suspended for a time, hoping that the injustice of the allegations wo.uld be speedily shown. Day after day passed by without a word of denial or explanation from Judge Locke, who, so far from boldly confronting his accusers, remains hiddert in some unknown retreat. This silence seemed to virtually admit his guilt, and the public murmuring became more gen eral and outspoken. A week ago last Saturday, the Washoe Star announced that the Judge was in that town, and would in the next number of that paper publish a full explanation of the charges made against him, and asked for a suspen sion of the public opinion until such pub lished explanation could be made. The people awaited the forthcoming of that paper with interest. The Washoe Star I was published last Saturday, as usual; hut there was in its columns no allusion to Judge Locke. Judge Locke has vanished from the gaze of the people of Nevada Territory ; the place of his whereabouts I none may conjecture. It looks, however, I to the speculative eye as though, over 1 whelmed with the shame of detected guilt, he had fled the country forever. If we wrong the man by this publicly expressed suspicion of the truth of the charges made against him, we are sorry for it ; but the fault is his own. The suspicion is the natural sequence of every act of the man since the charges were made. THE MAIL QUESTION. The ventilation of the mail abuses, to which j the people of Gold Hill are subjected, is pro ducing a proper effect. It has set the parties ' involved at the work of investigating where ! the fault really lies. The Postmaster at this place has written to the other offices below, and received answers concerning the matter. J The San Francisco man says he sends all Territorial mail matter to the Sacramento Distributing Office, and washes his hands of the matter. The official at Sacramento says that he sends the matter to the Carson Valley office for Territorial distribution. The Car son Postmaster writes the following letter, and as we have spoken pretty roughly about that office, we publish his letter entire. It his statements are correct, neither he nor the Stage Company are to blame in the matter : Carson Cut, May 21. lt-ttt. Postmaster at Gold Hill ?dear Sir : j Your* of yesterday came duly to hand thi? moru iug. Now. then, ia regard to the mails : Instruc tions froia the P. O. Department are, that the mails coming from the Went shall bo put up at Sacramento as follows : 4* Separate sacks for Car son City. Virginia and Austin, to contain the I mail matter for the smaller offices in the viciuity of each, which are to bs opeued at no offices | along the route, except at those to which ihev ?!* TAGGED. "Sacramento is also required to pat up daily, at that office, an iron lack way sack, to coutaiu the 'mail bill.' to collect and distribute the mail mattt-r at the intermediate offices, and to be opened at all the offices on the route." By these instructions you will notice that I have nothing to do with the sacks tagged Vir ginia and Austin, ooly to see that they come to I hand as per mail bill and are promptly sent for- ! ward. AH the sacks we open here" are those I tagged Carson City and " Salt Lake way." To save you trouble and labor. I have hereto fore separated your mail and put it up in a sack I by itself, tagged " filverCity and Gold Hill." and I Which has gone forward by the same stage as the [ -alt Lake way bag. If any mail matter has come ; back to vou from Virgin ia City, it has been put ? into the Virginia bag at >acramento, instead of I in the " Salt Lake way " or Carson bag. and the fault of which you complain is somewhere eUe than at this office. Hereafter, your mail will be put into the "Salt Lake way " bag. as per instruc tion from the P. O. Department. Very respectfully, yours, Benjamin F. Small, P. M. The Indian Troubles is Palmyra. ? The party who went out in search of the supposed Indian murderers, had a diffi culty with some of the K-TJtes, whom they found, and were forced to shoot two of them, one of whom escaped. The other is badly wounded, and is being cared for at Como. The parties went as j far as Walker River, and found the Indian J camps generally deserted ; a fact which convinces the people that the Indians are, beyond doubt, the murderers. The party killed last week was the third man mur dered at that spot. We are informed that there is considerable alarm in the vicinity of Como, apprehensions being entertained of an extensive Indian outbreak. Trou ble seems to exist throughout the Terri tory, and we fear that before it is ended it will be necessary to exterminate the whole Indian population, or drive them far beyond the borders of the white settle ments. District Court. ? The District Court, on account of the ill-health of Judge North, has been necessarily adjourned until Monday, June 6th. Hi* friends are apprehensive that that length of time will not sufficiently recupcratc the Judge's seriously impaired health to enable him to resume his seat upon the bench. The calendar is crowded to an extent that would require three years of ordinary court routine to clear, and some measures for a very general reference of cases must be adopted or the business of the Territory must suffer boyond computation. Editorial Visit. ? Miss Lisle Lester, editor of the Hesperian, honored our sanc tum with a call to-day. She is canvassing for her excellent magazine, and we com mend her and it to the favorable consider ation of the community. More Perslcction of Constitutional DEMOCRATS.?' Three brothers named Hudginit, who took the oath after deserting the re bel army, and then found employment in one of the Gov ernment repair shopg in WsMhlngton. have been discharged by Colonel In graham for rejoicing over the Fort Pillow massacre. Too bad ! wasn't it Beriah ? The "Memagb." ? The new morning paper, published by Geo. W. Bloor & Co., made its first appearance, and is a creditable sheet, both typographically and editorially. COPPEH STOCK.?" Copper" stock is drooping. | It b a drug in the market this morning. No alia non is intended to the "Napoleon," nor kindred companies, which it is hoped are ali very flourish ing. We once invested in copper stock, and lost one hundred per cent. The Peace Democracy did the same thing, politically, yesterday. Their tunnel did not strike the lead. Their pocket "petered'' out. The casing proved no thing but " hard shell," with nothing between. The whole thing was nothing bnt a " shyster." They will ship no ore into the >herifT s office, for assay or smelting? Weller is not well enough to do it. The cop per- clad* are at a discount. Bar ber is shampooed, street is uupaved, Coffroth has frothed in vain, John B. Weller has ret..?d to his farm in Alameda. The Peace Democracy is rery praceable, Indeed ; knocked all to pieces. Lee's supports have had their communications cut hereabouts, and cannot reinforce him from this city. Their ship ha* foundered in the storm, although copper fant en!rk "swyer struck a snag and sunk ere loaded, and Drake's election is merely a canard. There is an especial greenness about copper to-day. As copper has failed the admirers of Jeff., w? advise S if <lo#? sometimes a rery quieting med extract of tarantula, as a more agvn t. Call.

Nathaniel Hawthorne, a great American author, died to-day. The Richmond Examiner of the 16th, says: The enemy have concentrated in Virginia ; if beaten there, they will be beaten everywhere; if they win there, they win everything. The war will and the Confederacy might con tinue; but if Viiginia is lost, the present Confederate organization will not probably survive. Chicago, May 19. ? The New York World and Journal of Commerce published yester day morning what purported to be a procla matiom from the President appointing a day of humiliation, also calling fur -100,000 troops. A second edition of the World says that it, with other city papers, was made the victim of a malicious hoax by some scoundrel who, j in imitation of manifoH dispatches of the i Associated Press, sent copies to all the pa- I pers. Tne Herald printed a large edition, but discovered the hoax in time to suppress it. The World and Journal of Commerce are now uuder seizure by the Provost Guard for publishing it. Neither ettfee has published a paper to-dav. The offices of the IndependetTelegranh Com ' pany in New York, Philadelphia ana Wash- ; I ingtou have been closed for transmitting the bogus document from Washington. Several persons have been arrested, and will be tried by military tribunal for treasonably attempt ing to give aid and comfort to the enemy. Gold, which closed on Tuesday night at 79, opened at SI, under the influence, doubt less, of the false proclamation. The steamer which left at noon yesterday for Europe, in all probability, took copies out, but without the announcement that it was bogus. .1 nuirixilMll turnrfl iuiu 11 wirn Battle?

A special dispatch to the Tribune from headquarters of the Army of the Potomac, 1 P. M., 18th, says that desultory tiring which commenced at daybreak has grown into a very considerable battle. The enemy discovering the changes of position that had been made last night, took advantage of the same and were found to have massed all their strength on our right, designing, doubtless, to make another desperate assault to break our lines and get at supply trains. This movement of the ene my occasioned the re-occupation of our old position of yesterday. In the effort to do this the Second Corps, occupying our ex trenie right, became engaged, and the strug gle was kept up more or less severely to noon. To-day our troops were advanced to within very close range of the rebel earthworks, when a murderous fire was opened, occasion ing considerable loss, but our sums were soon got iuto position, and uuder cover of their tire we charged and took the first line of rifle pits, capturing a considerable number of pri soners and several guns. At the present writing there is a cessation of firing. The rebel loss is believed to be greater than ours, notwithstanding the momentary advantage of their artillery range upon us. Congrenaionnl?

Senator Harding introduced a bill to amend an act of Con gress, approved September 18th, 1850, rela ting to donation to settlers on public lands in California. The House passed the Senate bill amendatory of the Act authorizing Ne vada to form a State Government. It chang es the time of submitting it to a vote of the people, to the first day of September. Reports from General Sherman's com mand, dated Kingstou. Georgia, 2 p.m. to day, anntunced that he had reached Kings ton, and encamped there last night. This morning he advanced upon the enemy, who again retreated. Dispatches state that while they were be ing written Hooker and Howard's guns were hammering at Johnston, and that the two armies are in plain sight of each other. Two miles east of Kingston, Duke's division of the Fourteenth Corps are in possession of Rome. Sherman reports the weather pleas ant, roads good and country more open and less mountainous. Dispatches from Bermuda Hundred, the 18th, say that on Monday the rebels came out of their intrenchments in front of Fort Darling and made three advances, all of which were' promptly and energetically re pulsed, with a loss to them of 1,000 or 1,-500, while our loss was slight. Butler having as certained that Beauregard had been heavily reinforced, and learning from Richmond pa pers that several miles of the Danville rail road had been discharged, and that dams, locks and embankments of the canal leading to Richmond had been destroyed, decided to fall back from Darling, and gave orders ac cordingly. Our army securely arrived be hind our own line of intrenchments. Several of Longstreet's men were captured, who stated that his whole army was co-operating with Beauregard. The object of our demonstra tion against Fort Darling was for the purpose of drawing off as many of Lee's troops as possible, and also to attract the attention of the rebel forces in aud about Richmond to enable General Kurtz to more effectually de stroy their communication South.

Fed eral Lorn Lcm than l.OOO ? I?ee It Dattle, but lie Reiuaina in Ilia Defrnaea. New York, May '20th. ? A dispatch from the headquarters of the army on Wednesday evening says: At 5 o'clock this morning the Sixth Corps, supported by Hancock's divi sion on the rijjht, and Burnside's on the left, advanced against the enemy's works. The rifle pits in front were those which had been abandoned by us, and were filled with rebel sharpshooters. They were soon dislodged and driven through the second line, and be hind a thick and impenetrable abattis of the most formidable character. On examination it was deemed best not to attempt to charge through this barricade, and the troops fell back ia good order exposed to a galling tire of shell and canister. Our losses were 800 killed and wounded. Burnside's corps was engaged, and lost of the above number about one- fourth. An attack was made by the enemy on our left in the afternoon, where Gen. Warren had posted our batteries, but they were soon driven back aod their guns silenced. All was quiet at 6 P. M. A later dispatch, dated May 19th, at 6 P. says: We have just received int' lligence that Ginney's Station, on the Fredericksburg and Richmond Railroad, was entered last night by our scouts, who captured the tele graph station. A large quantity of supplies were destroyed by them. The Herald's Washington special says: The action on Wednesday at Spottsylvania resulted in a success for Grant in gaining the advantage in his position on his right. This was the object of his attack. Our entire loss will not exceed one thou sand killed, wounded and missing. No gen eral officers were either killed or wounded. Up to 10 o'clock on Thursday the battle had not been renewed. The position occu pied by Lee is a vast entrenched camp, the natural strength of which was increased by the erection of formidable fortifications, built long ago in anticipation of their need. Lee manifests no disposition to come out of his defenses. Every opportunity has been offered him to do so. A change in the position of our forces has been made, with the view of compelling him to accept a battle beyond his fortifications. Caplare of Tampa, Florida? The Rebel Troops gone to Keinforoe Ler.

The reason of the Rappahannock's non-arrival at the Bahamas is that she is laid up for a month. This information comes from Con federate officers through our spies. A (?rent Battle Pending. A special dispatch to the Evening Bulletin says the Washington Star states that the skirmishes with Grant's army the past few days have been in our favor, but a battle is imminent. The Rebel* Want Suppliea. A large number of prisoners were taken on Wednesday, who confess that the rebels are in want of supplies. Cieucrnl Art-rill Onina a Victory and Destroy* a Railroad. Cincinnati, May 21. ? A dispatch from Gauley Ridge gives an account of a brilliant victory by General Averill on the 8th, with the main body of Crook's army. Averill reached a point within four miles of Wythe ville, and pere encountered the enemy four thousand strong, under Sam Jones. A fight ensued which lasted for four hours, but Gen. Averill succeeded in driving them back, kill ing and wounding many, and capturing a number of prisoners. The rebels retreated under cover of darkness. Our loss was 120. Averill then effectually destroyed the railroad thence to a point four miles east of Christian burg. At this place a small squad of rebels was encoun ered, who hastily retreated. Arre*t of Sam Medarjr, of Ohio. Sam Medary was arrested at Columbus by the United States Marshal and brought to Cincinnati. The cause of his arrest is not stated. Latest Dispatches. [SPECIAL TO THE 00* HILL DAILY NEWS.) Cincinnati, May 21. ? A West Virginia correspondent says tbnt General Crook's command is slowly falling back, after accom plishing most thoroughly its object. He has destroyed a large amount of supplies, and damaged the Eastern Tennessee Railroad beyond repair for fully three months. General Jenks, who was wounded and cap tured, has since died. INDIAN MURDER IN HUMBOLDT. Dr. Thomas L. Barnes, of this place, has received a letter from Areata, giving an ac count of the murder of his brother, James D. Barnes, by the hostile Indians of Hum boldt. The following extract from the letter gives the full particulars of the affair, from which it appears that a white man is among the murderers: ARC at a, May 9, 18W. MY Df.au SIR: Your brother James is no more, lie was shot on Friday rooming. May 6, at 9 A. M. by Iudians, while returning to camp alone, with some pack ninles with which he had taken noiii* provUiou* from camp the day previous, to a scoutiug party that were aiier the Indians. He rode three miles on hi? mule, alone, alter he wn? shot, and lived three hours. Ho was coutfcious to th** last. After arriving at the camp, npon being lifted from hi* mule he became faint and weak, and continued sinking until 12 o'clock M., when he expired without a straggle. Previous to his death he made the following statement: He said that when he arrived within three miles of the camp hi* mule took fright, and upon looking around he saw a number of Indians with guns and a white man with his rifle pointed at him, and he thought it was he that gave the tirst and fatal ahot, which struck hira in the back, passing through the kidney ; auother ball, and the las* one which struck him, shattered the right shoulder blade, and he dropped his ride, which was sub sequently found undisturbed. His remains were brought into this place the next day on a litter, and were interred on Sunday, May 8tb, at 1 P. M. They were followed to the grave by a large con course of people, escorted by a corporal's guard of the company of California Volunteers for which he was acting as guide, aud also by the members of Arcade Lodge No. 107 F. and A. M., which lodge he frequently visited during his stay among us. * * * J C.B. SOLDIERS vs. FREEDMEN. Under this caption the Sacramento Bee re fers to the project of raising money for the support of the " freedraen," a matter to which we have heretofore referred, and says : The pressing necessity (to which the entire coast is responding; for aid to the >anitary Fund, occasioned by the recent destructive battles, has not stirred up the San Franciscau* to make their usual display of charity in that behalf. To be sure, at the electiou on Tuesday they did raise 34,800 for the fund, a little more thau four bits for each Union voter who vi?ited t*e polls, and this is all the extra work they have done in the present emergency. But if San Francisco char ity does not respoud to the needs of the sick aud w'ounded soldiers who have suffered in their coun try'* behalf, it seems to be bubbling up in anotber direction, for we Bee that a mass meeting has been called to ruise funds to aid the freed negroes. ? We have ne disposition to dictate to San Frau cisco as to the objects on which they shall besiow their charities, yet it does seem so to us that until the sick and wounded soldiers are fully provided for, other objects of charity less worthy, less de serving and less suffering, should be passed over. The freed negroes have been used to labor ; the demand for labor in the East is great, and if their freedom is not to be a curse to themselves and to the couutry.they should be taught to labor for their own "subsistence. This traveling around the country beiug means for their support not only tends to encourage them in idleness, but will, if pursued too far, render the idea of univer sal emancipation extremely distasteful to the minds of the people. Not only this, it is absorb ing money which we are in duty bound to be stow on other objects. The Philadelphia Inquirer has a letter from Jacksonville, Florida, which says: "We have learned of persons from the interior that the great Okeefenokee Swjimp, in Georgia, bordering on the State line of Florida, is full of deserters from the Confederate armies. Some estimate their number at one thousand, while others say t'roiu five to six hundred. This force has been accu mulating ever siuee the conscription law went into operation, and now, having a small army, they are regularly organized and equipped for defence against the Conferate authorities. A force wus sent to subdue and arrest them a year since, but were repulsed by the deserters.

A gang of six men were recently arrested it: Empire District, Colorado Territory, for hanging a mnD almost to death three times, for the pur pose of forcing him to disgorge some money that* he hadn't stolen.

Dr. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, ill a recent speech, said : " Let it be forever remembered, that it is the secession of the South, and the war which ha* followed, which has brought slavery to the crisis of Its fate. Let it be settled in your heart*, that the alternative so often spoken of has come."
