Mr. Lultrell U a Congressman from California, and bus lately essayed some take, in whicb, if be is only successful, be will deserts the thanks of mj good citizen, and fur merely malting tbe at tempt deserve tbe highest commenda tiou. For as matters now stand, en trenched as all government swindlers are. behind piles of red tape and the barriers of the circumlocution offices, and de fended by shrewd, expert lobbyists and hired legislators, it takes a man of steady nerve, thorough integrity and unwaver iux strength of purpose to withstand tbe various attacks of the enemy. Some times the foe is bold and deOant, some times wheedling and insinuating, and is rsady to nse any means ol cajolery, no matter what whether money, a charm ing feminine face, or official preferment, It is nf no consequence what the bait is. When the peculiar temptation is fonnd, t- which the troublesome inquirer will Buccumb, it is sure to be forthcoming. We therefore S!y, that when Lnttrell attacks and demands investigation in such well fortified schemes of iniquity as the Central Pacific Contract and finance Company, and the present villainous system of letting mail coutraeU, be bad need of all his faculties, the clearest self possession, and uu uufullering, resolute will, to allow no temptation to divert him from the path of duty that he had chosen. As Henry of Navarre said of his standard bearer, " fall f nil well he may." Lnttrell may also fail, but if that failure is not caused by fear of the brag gart, bullying foe, or yielding to vile temptations, there will be no disgrace in the failure. The foe is no contemptible one, Htrong in place, iu power, in money; bold and arrogant through con tinued impunity; flushed with spoils and with victory, it will make a desperate, determined resistance when its very cita del is attacked. It expects no quarter from tbe public, and therefore hoists the black flig aud will fight to the death. Like every other gang of pirates, it would sooner bury itself and its assail ants under a common ruin, than yield an ounce of its plunder or the opportun ities for continuing its depredations. Already the paid agents of tbe railroad monopoly and the mail swindles, nre at work like hired bravos stabbing the ex plorer iuto thess hidden but to thom most profitable mysteries. The H icrii mento Record, the riaii Francisco Altu, and viler thin either, the Washington Chronicle and others, are doiug their dirty best to ridicule and blackguard the desired investigation aud its author. This is n most unwise proceeding on their part, for it is at once a confession of the crime and of their inability to interpose any defense but abuse. Jitst tbe same course was pursued by the Washington Chronicle when the Dis trict of Columbia investigation was nsked for. Tbut parsonic political acro bat II irlan, who is trying to perform the jvonderful feat of serving God, mammon and the Devil at one and the same time, put on immense airs. It was a shame, be said, that such vile charges should be brought against such highly respectable, such moral, such good church members, as Governor Shepherd, Mayor Cooke, etc Such things ought not to be permitted, and the memorial ists (he forgot they included some of the most reliable and rispecl able people iu Washington) ought to be ashamed of themselves, and they and their memorial ought to be shown the Congressional door without any ceremony. There was a good deal more of this kind of stuff published in the columns of that paper and other party ha'dts; but mark the result. Finding the inquiry could not be stalled off, they wanted to smother it. That was found not to do, for stern disapprobation was expressed all over the country. Next, nobody knew any thing. Then that dodge was worn out, for a witness was found who knew considerable. Aud now the offenders are on their knees, confessing their de linquencies and begging for mercy. So with the mail contracts and the contract and finance company. Their journals are barking like a pack of savage curs at Luttrell's heels (the Washington Chron icle of course heads the pack), accusing him of all sorts of baseness, and de manding that he and bis inquiry shall be sent to the right about at once. But this game will not do, any more than in the District investigation. It is not as it was three years ago, when Congress insolently de nied investigation. Now it does not dure do it. Ho the bluff game of bully ing and intimidation will fail. Next they will try what chicanery and the smothering process will effect. If that also fails, then will oomo the old Btory, confession, an appeal for mercy, and the necessity of whitewashing the matter as far as possible, for the good of the party. What next? Then will oome Luttrell's most trying ordeal, for all sorts of de vices will be nsed to lnrs him off tbe track and allow the matter to quietly slip into oblivion. But he has com menced the work, he has put his hand to the plow, and he must not look back. Great as is the task, dangerous as is the path, he has no alternative but to carry on the war and wage it to its bitter end. If he falters iu his self-imposed labors, he will have a worse reputation than the swindlers he has essayed to expose. Go ou he must, so let the independent press of the country do its best to strengthen his hands by helpful words of cheer, and by exposing the baseness and corruption of the hydra-headed monsters that he has so bravely attceked. INOHPKNOE-VT CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS. Vbescctt. JUr 2. H. B. Stephens, who baa represented Pima county in the Legislature for thre or four terms, baa announced himself as an independent candidate for Congress. The Democratic Convention, to assemble at Pno?nix next week, is expected to indorse Stephens. Independent candidates and Independ ent journals are being found in every corner of the land. The people are worn oat, sickened with tbe hackneyed professions of politicians. Tbey want something more, and tbey will have it too. They will have thorough sweep ing reform in governmental matters. Party considerations have ceased to hsve any value. The people intend to scrutL nize men and measures closely, and esti mate theta at their true worth. The time has gone bv when men can ride into place on an unm?aning political plat form, that has no sooner answered its purpose of deceiving the people, than it is put away, like other old lumber. This style of proceeding U about coming to an end, and candidates for office will have to depend f ir more on their actual merits than their affiliation with this or that party. Aspirants for official posi tions bad better " moke a note on 't " if thev wish to succeed. BY TELEGKAPH! arRciti, to the nocn Din t aswan. Yestirhat morning tbe first ax was struck upon the work of building the new aebnoner in tbe association's ship yard. The work is now fairly inaugurat ed, ond no step will be taken backward, nor will there be any cessation to Inbor until the enterprise is completed. Val ejo, Cal., T. We nre glad to find that tbe Co-operative Shipwrights of Vallejo have gone to work in earnest. If their society is wisely conducted it may form the nucleus ol an immense shipbuilding interest ou this coast. How much better is it for these men to work together in this man ner, than to wait for work in the Navy Yard, aud then sell themselves and their votes to some jack in office for permis sion to earn a living. Givn thk Dkvil His Dcb. Jt is noth ing but fair to correct every misstate ment that goes the round of the papers, no matter if it Helps or hurts. A fchort time since it was announced that the rate of freight on fruit cars bound E.ist from California, had been raised some $100. Iu consequence of this erroneous state ment, Superintendent Towne writes to the San Fraucisco Bulletin, aud says that the freight is the same this year as it was last seasou, viz.: $500 per car of ten tons by freight trains, or $000 per car by passenger trains. A. C. Mkkkkii writes to the Stockton Leader, and says that be has found n remedy for "curled leaf," that at present is affecting the peach trees in California, Meeker says that if the bark of tbe tree is slit, from the top to the bottom of the trunk, that the treo will recover and the fruit will mature. Two propositions are being earnestly discussed by the Canadian people. One is whether n Vice Regal Court shall be formed, with tho Duke of Edinburgh ns the Viceroy; the other is whether Can ada shall be united, politically and finan cially, with the Home Country. Thk prequiaites with the Court of Claims is said to be fat or lean, accord ing to the character of the Judge. If Horace Maynard or Richardson Becure the appointment, we imagine that the perquisites will be tolerably fat. Wolfish. Near Guerrytown, Ala., a man was attacked by a hungry wolfe and barely escaped with bis life. He gave his wolfship such a warm reception, that the latter concluded that he would not have a man for breakfast. A pro insist; prospect of cinnabar has been found in El Dorado oounty, Cal. Ths municipal election for officers of the citv government for the ensuing year is progressing ns we go to preBB. At 1 o'clock this afternoon the officers of the polls in the First and Second Wards took a recess for ono hour. At the hour named 'Jill votes had been polled in tbe First Ward out of a registry of 413, ond in the Second 388 votes out of 713. lu tbe Third Ward 4GS votes bad been polled, the number registered being about 875. About 450 votes were regis tered in the Fourth Ward, but we were unable to ascertain the number of votes polled up to 1 o'clock. The election of Kaneen for Mayor, Strouse for Treasurer and Miot for Assessor, all Democrats, is generally conceded, nnd it is believed that the contest between Noonan and Lackey for Chief of Police will be very close. The crowds about the polls have been quiet and orderly all day, with the exception of it little knock-down in tbe . First Ward. In Gold Hill the town elec tion is also being held to-day. Tbe lower ward has bat one ticket in the field, aud in the upper ward it is be lieved a new Board of Trustees will be elected. Virginia Chronicle, 4th. Foil some time past parties have been engaged in placer mining in Crown Point Ravine, Gold Hill, between the old Bow ers mill and the railroad crossing, aud we understand that they have been mak ing as high as fifty dollars per day to tbe hand, many large "chispas" of gold hav ing been taken out. At present the par ties are engaged in couBtructing a flume down the ravine to carry off tbeir waste water and thereby prevent damage to tbe streets and property of that populous oanyon. Virg. Chronicle. Doubtful. A man named Phillips, nicknamed the Bachelor Millionaire, re cently died a Pittsburgh, and two men bearing the names of William and Rob ert B. Hemingray claim the estate, and assert that tbey are tbe legitimate child ren ot the so-oalled Baoheloi, This claim will give the lawyers of the Smoky City an exceedingly rich crow to pluck. Hon Charles E. Di Loho has written a letter to a gentleman in this city, Bay ing that he would leave New York on the 1st instant for Marysville direct, aud would return at the earliest possible moment to Virginia to resume bis resi dence and the practice of his profession, Virg. Chronicle, 4. We suppose that includes office seek ing as well as the law, for the former has been his principal business for the last twenty years. A colored gentleman name Armstrong received a ball from a navy revolver in bis neck. Ed. Davidson, with Barnett & Bro., didn't propose to stand much lip from Mr. Armstrong, and, as a gentle reminder, toot a snot at mm, tnougn not till Armstrong had made threats againBt bis life, and shot at him. Davidson gave himself np and is now out on bail. Arm strong is in jail. His wound is not as bad as it might have been. Keno State Journal. A dead Indian was fonnd this morning in one of the ravines north of Empire City. Ths body is not decomposed. Nothing is yet known of tbe cause of his death, it wb possibly oaused by intern pe ranee.

Arseue Gernnlt, Professor of Mathematics in the United States Naval School, died at New Bruns wick on the 2d inst. He bad been in the Navy since 1815, but recently retired. Governor Shepherd's cross-examina. tion by the District Investigation Com' mittee was continued, but nothing new w.a elicited, and the Committee ed- iourned until Monday. Tbe Cabinet was in session nearly two hours to-day. and considered tbe Ar kansas onestion. and reached no con clusion. The dtcision of the Supreme Court in fiivor of Brooks i6 iu such direct contra diction to its previous decision, that the Legislature had exclusive control of the question, augmeuts the difficulty of the general Government iu solving tbe mat ter, ond great surprise at 6nch a decision is expressed by the Cabinet. There may be some decision to-morrow, but the attorneys of the parties ore continually presenting new points of arguments, and it is not certain that a decision will be reached. A Cabinet officer said this afternoon that the Government was heartily tired of the controversy. When tho decision is ma le, a proclamation will be issued, which, all will understand must Buttle the question. Little Rock, May 8. The party of Brooks' men who intercepted tin steamer Halleck, which started with souad of Baxter's men, captured the steamer aud brought her here. Tin Baxter men who were on the steamer escaped, and Brooks to-night Bent squad in pursuit of them, while Baxter in turn sent a squad of cavalry in pur suit of Brooks' men. A large number of the members of the Legislature ore al ready here, and there seems little doubt but there will be u quorum here on Mon day, if their meeting is not prevented by Brooks' men. St. Lorn, May 8. A Democrat spec ial Bays Brooks' party fired on the Hal leck, after having ordered her to stop, and received two volleys iu return. Washington, May 8. At an adjourned meeting of the Republican Senatorial Caucus this afternoon, there was a long discussion on the pending civil rights bill, with a view of making it acceptable to all niemberB of the majority by some modification of its provisions. No defi nite conclusion was reached, but it is I believed action will be taken ot another caucus to provide for such a compromise. The bill will clearly admit of separate schools being provided for white and colored children, also for separate ac commodations by inn keepers, hotel proprietors, etc., on condition that equal advautoges nre secured to all parties. Cincinnati, May 8. The Mayor issued a proclamation to-day, urging subscrip tions to be made for tbe relief of the des titute people of Louisiana. Chahlhston, S. C, May 9.

The alleged libel is contained in articles relative to the Cardiff Giant. Tbe defendant c'aims the charges are authentic, and that their publication was without malice. Washington, May 8. Bill Kelly, col ored, was banged hero to-day, in the presence of fully 10,000 people, for o rape on a white woman, committed two ; years ago. A Btampede occurred caused j I by a runaway horse, and a number ol i people were injured. Kelly died protest ing his innocence. I Cnit'Aoo, May 8. A Little Rock special Bays a detachment of Brooks' men were sent out this morning to in tercept a party of Baxter's, who bad started up the river to capture a party bringing arms to Brooks. They iutur cepted the steamer with the Baxter party and a fight ensued, in which three Bax- teriteB were killed, one of Brooks' waB mortally wounded and one Blightly wounded. A Washington special says the General Government will take uo actiou in the Arkansas matter until nfter the meeting of the Legislature on Monday next. New Yobk, May 8. At a meeting of Democrats from all parts of the country, in tbe rooms of tbe Manhattan Club last night, Augustus Schell, who presided, stated the object of the meeting in the following address: " This welcome occa sion is one of great interest to ns, to our city, our State and our couutry. We have met together once more. Wo feel that the great Democratic principles of our government are recognized through out the 'country. The reoent elections bring to our minds the condition of cur country twenty years ago, when the Democratic party was in the full tide of successful experiment, when our govern ment was ably ooodncted by men of character and integrity. We are happy to meet you on this occasion to join with ns in celebrating this return to those great principles, and we ore satisfied that before another Presidential election shall have passed we shall not only be represented in the States, bat in the Presidential chair, by a Democrat of vir tne and ability."
