THE NEWS FROM CALIFORNIA. Fatal Squatter Difficulty.—We are indeb ed to a gentleman who came over in the Contra Coata boat last evening for the follow ing facts regarding the shooting of Deputy Sheriff Johnson, at Oakland yesterday. It aeema that some months since, Hon. T. B. Van Buren leased a certain piece of property to a tenant at Contra Costa, who afterwards un der let the premises to a person named Hardy. Upon the expiration of the term f«r which the lease was made, the party in occupancy refused to deliver up the premises upon the ground of being a pie-emption claimant. Mr. Van Buren •hereupon procured an order from some one of the Courts to be put in possession, but an in junction was taken out against it. This was afterwards dissolved, and yesterday sheriff Johnson attempted to put Mr. Van Buren in possession, when the former was shot and mor tally wounded. When the ferry boat reached Oakland yes terday evening at 6 o'clock, there was great ex citement existing among the people. Mr. Johnson was shot through the stomach, aa he was entering thedoor, after having broken it j Wn " l Hari| y ,r ' e< * lo c ß c ®P*ibut was arrest ed, with two other men, supposed to have been connected with him. Mr. Johnson expired soon after, and when the boat left, a Coroner's jury had been summoned to hold an inquest upon his remains. The steamer was dispatched back to this city to procure assistance to enforce the law. The excitement was very great, and there was con siderable talk of lynching when our informant left. There can be but little doubt, however, that the offenders will be strictly and justly dealt with.—San Francitco Whig of July 31. Mnj. Chevallie, one of the original Texas Rangers, who died at Stockton on the 9th, was followed to the grave by the Masons, and by a detachment of the 2d Infantry, under the com mand of Mnj. G VV. Patten, who was in the city at the time. More Troops required in the Southern District.—A friendly Indian in the employ of the Quarter Master, as herdsman, reports that he has seen and conversed with a number of Y'uma Indians in the mountains between Santa Ysabel and Vollecitas, who told him that their people had been compelled to abandon the Gila ri'er country, in consequence of the movements of Maj. Heintzelman—that they had crossed the desert for the purpose of at tacking Maj. McKinstry's train of wagons, and inducing the Cahuillas and Diguenos Indians to join «hem in their war against the Ameri cans. These reports are confirmed by the In dian Alcalde of San Jose, who savs the moun tains are full of Vumas, who want us to join them in attacking the whites Fatal Affray in Trinity County.—We learn that an affray occurred on Sunday last, at the Upper Mountain House, between Weav er and Shasta, which resulted in the death of one tf the parties. Two men named Smith and Nob le had a dispute about a dog, aud af ter high words, pistols were drawn by both parties. Noble's pistol went off accidentally, the shot entering the ground and doing no damage. They then commenced firing indis criminately. The first shot s'ruck Noble in the leg. He then fired and hit his adversary in the neck, and ngain in the side. The last shot proved mortal, as Smith died on Monday. The deceased was a young man, and formeriy of Massachusetts.—Sacramento Union. Col. Freaner, who is supposed to have been murdered, was on his way from Yreka to attend the Democratic convention. Lower California an Independent State.—The San Diego Herald of the 22d has it from reliable authority, that active prepara tions are on foot to proclaim the independence of the peninsula ferry, and hoist the **Bear flag." Don Manuel Casiro, a native of Monte rey, and late an officer in the Mexican armr, it is said, has been silently engaged of late, In enlisting nyn in this and' the county of Lot Angeles, to proceed to lower California and proclaim the independence of that territory.— Rumor has it, that he has been quite success ful, and that his followers are now daily mak ing their way over the line in small parties, in tending to unite at some given point, and march up St. Thomas and La Fez. Nerete, the head of the Mexican authorities in that country, is represented as a timid man, incapa ble of resisting a well organized effort. Hi* family have taken refuge in our city from the impending storm. Castro is of the opinion that the few Mexican troops in garrison at San to Thomas and La Fez, will join bis standard so soon as he unfurls it. OREGON. _ The steamship Fremont arrived at Sail Fran cisco on the 30th July, from Oregon, bringing dates to the 24th. A new steamer, designed for the Upper Wil lametta river, was launched at Oregon City about the Ist of Julv. She will draw eleven inches of water, and be able to run as high as Marysville at the lowest stage of the river. The population of Oregon is 20,000, and will probably double the present year. The steamers Multnomah and James P. Flint run daily between Portland and Oregon Cilv. There is a reaping machine in operation on the French Praiiie, Oregon. It is McCormick's patent, which obtained the first premium at the World's Fair. The Statesman of the 17th July, says the farmers of Oregon are in the midst of their wheat harvest. The crop is a fine one, and what is quite important, commands a high price. Gov. Gaines made a personal attack upon Mr. Bush, of the Statesman, a tew weeks since, and appears to have come off second beet. In accordance with the Governor's procla mation, the Legislature of Oregon was to meet in extra session on the 26th inst. No reason is given in the proclamation for this extraordina ry movement. The regular session will oc cur in a few months. The Legislature will meet at Salem, declared (be seat of Govern ment by act of Congress. Two fire engines have arrived at Portland, and were found to act admirably. Light inule teams had arrived at the Cascade mountains, having made the trip from the Mis souri river in 80 days. They report a large number of wagons about 10 days behind tbem. The road over the Cas cade mountains is said to be in good order.— Oregonian. NEWS FROM TAHITI. News has been received from the Society Islands as late as the Bth of May. The na ture of the intelligence is spclv as to show that the designs of the French are unmistaka ble. There can be no question that, if possible, the spirit of Protestantism will be stilled and smothered, and unless the English missiona ries succumb to the dictation of the Goeer* nor. they will be ultimately banished from the Islands. The fact* end statements we aoir publish, our readers may rest assured, were aot communicated by may missionary resident at Tahiti; because, should it become known to tin authorities there that any missionary was sending abroad an account of tta Mate of things, it would snbieet him to persecution and MJushinsßt. The following in among (be persecuting acta of the F reach Protectorate Government at Tahiti: The F.neliah Protestant missionaries have been forbid to preach until they had formally acknowledged the Governor as their head, and promised to aabmit themselves to the control of the government. On or about the 10ih of Hay, the missionaries assembled at Papiete to consult upon the coarse for them to pur sae. No native would be allowed to preach with out the sanction of the government. The Rev. Mr. Chisholm, a German, em ployed by the London Missionary Society, had been prohibited from preaching out of a certain district, under pain of arrest and ban ishment. AMERICAN ART. Among the studios of Rome, writes a corres pondent of the Boston Transcript, there is none more thronged by artists and amateurs than those of our own sculptor Crawford. He occupies two large studios—one in the Piazza Barberini, the other in the Piazza de Termini, near the Diocletian Baths. The latter ia en tirelv devoted to the great work for the State of Virginia, which ia to be placed near the Ca pitol in Richmond. He haa just completed the models of his statues of Patrick Henry and Jefferson. They are fourteen feet in height, and are in the costume of the age. Apart from the likenesses, which are said by those who are familiar with other representations of the same subjects, to be very correct, they challenge the admiration of all who have seen them, as statues of the Orator and Statesman. The former stands in an oratorical, but not theatrical attitude, with out-stretched arms, and the face ia M as a book where men may read strange matters." I half expected to hear i irom those lips of clay the burning words that nerved the heroes of the revolution. The latter stands as if meditating some deep diplomatic acheme—but the face tells you that his thoughts are those of the honorable states man, rather than the political trickster. It is singular that Crawford should bave finished his Jefferson, and Gibsou his Sir Robert Peel, almost simultaneously. And though neither sculptor had seen the other's work, there is something of a similarity between the two statues. Their attitude and general sentiment would almost make one think that they origi nated in the same mind. Ido not know whe ther this is a compliment to the Englishman or the American. The severely classic genius of Gibson had robed Sir Robert Peel in the ancient toga—Crawford's Jefferson stands breached and cloaked, "in his habit as he lived" —and yet rivals the other in dignity end man ly beauty. There is a majesty about it that an American would always wish to associate with the author of the Declaration of Indepen dence. The plaster models of these statues are now sent to Munich, where lbey are to be cast in bronze. Mr. Crawford's Hebe and Ganymede, a beau tiful work, executed fur Mr. Charles C. Per kins, of this city, is now finished—and a flying figure of Ceres, with bounteously filled lap, will soon be ready to receive the final touches of the master hand. It is sufficient to say, thai in conception and execution they nre worthy of a genius which produced the Or pheus—and a glorious lulfilment of the youth ful promise of one whom the great Thorwald sen esteemed his successor in the highest clas sical style of sculpture. But Crawford's love for the antique and his success in mythological subject, have not cramped his genius, so that he can produce nothing but goddesses and satyrs. He has just finished a figure of a boy playing marbles, which is so entirely natural and boyish, that you can almost hear the marbles rattle ia his pocket, and the chuckle that follows the well directed snap. The stooping posture, the right hand holding the marble, the inteutness of the countenance, and the anatomical effect of the whole, are most wonderful. But the work which is destined to add most to his reputation—the work which will entitle him to the love of every man, woman and child who speaks the English tongue, is his Child ren in the Wood. He has recently modelled this, and is now executing it in marble for Mr. James Lenox, of New York. The artist has chosen the moment in the sad history when "death did end their grief;" they are clasped in each other's arms,"and the robin-redbreasts are just commencing their pious labor. They are clad in the graceful English costume of the middle ages. The whole story of their suffer ings is expressed in their sorrowful )o*e!v feature*—fl&d the little boy clasps his sister's hand as if he wished to keep her in the world which he himself is just leaving. The fami liarity of the subject and the natural manner of treating it will make it one of the most pop ular pieces of sculpture of the present age.— They who have known Crawford only in my thological subjects, can have no idea of ths ar tistic grace with which he clothes subjects of the luter ages; they are only acquainted with one phase of his genius. The "confessions" of criminals sometimes lead simple people into trouble—as witness: A correspondent of the Norfolk County Jour nal relates the following instance, which be picked up on a visit to the Thomaston (Me.) prison: "I was amused with an anecdote told me, relative to a clergyman who visited the prison, and desired to converse with the pri soners. The warden informed him that there would probably be little satisfaction in doing so, as correct answers would be difficult of obtaining. However, he began conversation with a young prisoner, and inquired relative to the nature of bis crime. In reply, the prisoner told him that he stole a saw mill, and*on going back alter the dam was cauglif.and put in pri son. The minister concluded to leave the in corrigible youth." A gentleman recently from Africa, while at one of Che civilised colonies on the coast, met a young colored woman whom he had known in Old Virginia, who had obtained her freedom for good conduct,and had emigrated to Liberia. "Where are you traveling to MaryT" saidl the gentleman. "I am going down to the village on the sea shore. I'm tired of seeing niggar, niggar! I want to see some white folks. But are you doing well herel" "O, very well. I have four slaves who make palm leaf bats.' -Slaves, Mar;! You emancipated, to have sieves in yonr own land!" "Ob, yes, said sbe with great simplicity, "must do as they do in Old Virginia."

MOST BRUTAL OUTRAGE. On Wednesday evening last, five oraix miles went of Staunton, four stout irishmen, employ* ed on the Railroad, in that vicinity, by force, took from the vehicle, in which she was riding, a young mojnan and violated her person in a most brutal manner* She was in company with a young man, to whom the young lady clung for protection but both were overpowers ed. The young man left her to obtain assistance, and ou the alarm being given, to the credit of the, neighborhood be it spoken, prompt and efficient aid was rendered, and hot pursuit made to apprehend these unprincipled villains, which was not efiecietl uutil a late hourof the night. . Officer Trotter, to whom much praise is due, in company with four or five others, succeeded, after untired exertions, in overhauling tha scoundrels, and they are now safely confined in prison. At an examination Court held on Thursday, they were fully indeatified, and are now awaiting a regular trial. _ A repetition oi an offence like this will he tha signal for an uprising of our people and that class of our population guilty of such enormi* ties, will be hung without judge or jury, or dri ven out of the community at the point of tha bayonet. The indignation of the people isgreat and it is with pride we record the fact that the services of the entire community in which the outrage was committed, were tendered on this occasion. The two yonng person*, we understand, had started, with the intention of getting married, when they were met by these ruffians who defiled the person of the betrothed. The par ties have since left to unite their hands and their fortunes. The called Court is to be held on next Fri day, but the final trial will not take place until the silting of the Superior Court, the first pf November.—Staunton Vindicator. America* Superiority Admitted.—lt has been a hard task for the English to con cede the auperioritjr of Americans over British steamships,of which they had reason lob* proud, yet, though long delayed, her* it is — The London Times of the 9th nit. has the following: The truth must be told—tbe British steam* ships have been beaten, and the most rapid pas. sage« ever achieved between the old and new world have been accomplished by the Ameri can steamship*. None but an American steam ship has ever yet run from Liverpool to New York, and vice versa, in less than ten days.— The average paasagea of the Asia and Africa may, perhaps, nearly equal those of the Paci fic, Baltic and Arctic of the Collins' line, but the Americans have achieved the positive vie* iory in speed, their steamers—the Pacific, Bal tic and Arctic—have made the flee lest voyages. On,the part of the Americans the contest has been carried on at vast cost, and additional grants from Congress ostensibly for the mail service, but in reality from the national spirit of rivalry, have only recently been obtained to prevent the project from perishing by reason of an enormous inequality between receipts and expenditures. On the part of the British, while heavy amount* have been paid by the Exchequer, and ■ large profit haebeen mad* by the contractors, the Messrs. Canard, the de feat has been accepted only lo renew the at tempt in the hope and expectation of future and eventual sue cess. Expensive Fmuuu. — The Cincinnati Catholic Telegraph, in noticing "the vanity of having loug liues of carriages at funerals," says very justly: "More money is spent in idle and ridiculous display on such occasions than would be necesssry for the support of alt tbe widows and orphans in tbe city. When will our people understand that in most of (hoe* in stances, where survivors are left so utterly den titute, the Isrger the fnneral, the deeper tbn shame and tbe greater the disgrace."
