Luter irom Caliiornia.-Horrible Massacre
oi Indians—-From British I'olumbia— ten.
tral America. Ire.
The steamship Ilaltic, from Aspinwall on
the 1-th, with California dates to Che sth inst,
arrived at New York Sunday morning. Her
news is ol interest, and we make up the fol
lowing summary from the San Francisco pa
pers of tlie.ith instant :
A most cowardly and brutal butchery was
enacted on the islands in Humboldt Bay, in the
rtmcherias rilon**: Eel river, and on the shore
to the south and west of Eureka, in tbis Slate,
on Sunday morning, February US, The vic
tims uere Indians, including men, women nnd
children, and the in-rpetrators a body of white
men who inhabit the surrounding country It
seems that the farmers and stock owners tittv
tUf* failed to obtain the sanction of (Governor
Downey to war against the miserable savages,
who have been for a long time la a staiving
condition in consequence of having been driven
from their hunting grounds into the moun
tains by the white settlers, organized secretly
a vigilance committee and divided their forces
into several gani-s, who, at a given hour, were
lo attack Hie various Indian -. illaj-es, and
spare neither age, sex nor condition. The de
sit?ii was carried out in a fearful manner, as
the following particulars disclose.
At Indian lsiana, opposite the town of Eu
reka, and distant but a few hundred yards,
iuoi.-tb.--.il lorty Indians were killed, tbiee
fuiii'th*. of tho number being wotu-ui and chil
dren. On the beach, south of the entrance to
tbe BUY, forty or fifty Indians were also
killed. Report says till unit were there—every
one—were killed. It is also reported, and it
is no doubt true, that a ciniultaneotis attack
was mad*, upon tde villages on Eel river.—
From what was known in Eureka not less
than two hundred Indians—men, women and
children—were killed on this Sabbath morn
Mr. Van Ness, the Sheriff of Humboldt coun
ty, who came passenger ou the Columbia, con
firms the above, and adds the subjoined still
more horrid details. He says that the butche
ry on Humboldt Hay wa* committed by some
lorty men who had come from Eel river on
horseback. They hitched tlielr animals at the
south end ol the bay and seized a boat belong
ing to Capt. Bnhne, the pilot, with which
they crossed to theopposite shore, B-deatered
upon their bell-work, liefore daylight they
had slaeKblered every man, woman and child
they could find. They then proceeded to In
dian Island, up the bay, and re-enacted tho
bloody tragedy which they had performed on
the main laud, and returned to where they
had hitched their horses and rode oil. The
Sheriff estiinati-s tin* number of Indians
slaughtered along the bay at eighty, includ
ing women and children. It is probabic that
the butcheries C4jmmitted in thece places con
stitute but a portion of the horrid slaughter
of tli.it moralag. Thessforty men were evi
dently detailed tor bay duty, whilst other di

Mr. Baku inquired if the effect of this
amendment would be to establish au annuity
for this institution out of the literary fund f
If not, it is to come out of tbe public Treasury.
Then, an annuity is to be voted to one particu
lar Institution, while all the others lv the
State are to go without. He desiied au equal
distribution of patronage, and on the adoption
ol the amend me nt he called for the ayes aud
Mr. Bakroi'R said the amendment would
reduce ihe appropriation s'.'.ihjo. Tbe existing
annuity was anjOßu, to which 11 wn. proposed
1.1 th.- bill now under consideration to add
gfLttß, thus increasing ihe annuity togi&jMrO.
Mr. Baan withdrew his call for the ayes and
noes, and the amendment ottered by Mr. Hay-
HOBB was adopt.d. and the bill as amended
Urns ordered to its third r. ruling.
Mr Oat"rrHKiiii.ii said tbe bill was an im
portant one. The Institute was established
years ago as a Stale institution, but it had
been mainly supported by private individual*.
Provisions had beeu made during the present
session of the General Assembly, for all the
other institutions in which the State is inter
ested, and it seemed to him that tbis iustitu.
tion merited the special guardianship of the
State, aud should be liberally aided by the
Legislature. He alluded to the detective con
dition of tbe barracks and the crowding to-
? ether of the I lade is Tbe eighteen new Slate
Jadets proposed by the bill to be admitted,
could not be accommodated without fluishiug
the addiiions tbat had been begun. He hoped
the bill would pass.
Mr. AsuKßbo*. was satisfied the bill, if
understood, would pass. He alluded to the
yearly exi-euse (SU.oui) of keeping up the
State Armory at Lexington, which bad been
superceded by tbe Institute; also the #vM,oiMi
which il cost to mulctuiu the one in Kich
mon. The protection tn the State arms was
as effectual now as formerly. Indeed, the
State had gained by the change. The school

Mr. JOl-.SS, of G, asked bad it not been pro
posed to admit young men from other States I
Mr. Kbmpbr said such was the case, but the
annuity was not for tbeir benefit.
Mr. Uhkiatiait said that such was tbe in*
teres t felt by the Professors of the Inst! tn tion
in its prosperity, that they have been virtu
ally contributing out of their pockets to af
ford means for increasing its accommodstions,
inasmuch as they have yielded their inst claim
to a larger proportion of the tuition" fees. The
graduates of the Institnte commanded larger
salaries in other States and other schools thaa
the Institnte Professors. It was necessary, ia
order to retain the services of capable and -re
liable men, to increase the annuity.
Messrs Mahtij., of Henry, and Ykbbv also
favored the bill. Tbe question being put on
the passage of the bill, was determined in the

At midnight, being exhausted, they lav down

they landed outside Death's Door. They had
thus been driven thirty miles across the Ray

The horses, alter being loosed, followed the

Dtrify Union Prayer Meeting, Meeeefnu.—Am
increased attendance of gentle-ten and Indies
seemed to indicate that the week had Com
menced with n promising growth of Interest
in the meetings on tbe part of the community.
A gentleman rose,aad oa behalf of asrleh and
distressed friend, for whom he bad naked the
prayers of the meetings last week, requested
that all present would unite with ikht Indi
vidual in fervent thanksgivings fef Joy and
peace, which he had renelved la heHeviag.—
He appears to bave beeoHruly coaveried, and
and is truly happy ia ths exercise of a filial
and submissive faith.
The leader of the meeting earnestly recom
mended the duty of coming to thin daily as
sembly of the people of God, to -watch for
an hour" for the divine blessing.
An elderly gentleman, an.entire stranger,
from tbe city of Boston, next addressed the
meeting. His modest, but sensible and in
structive remarks, excited profound attention
and interest. He said, tbat as Christians, we
nre too longer aliens and strangers, but "tot.
low-citizens with tbe saints and of the house
hold of God.'' Ia traveling from Boston to
New Orleans be hau struck n vein of
"Noonday Prayer Meetings" at Fulton street,

lie bad noticed In tbs large rommercialcltiss,
that business men, rushing into these meet
ings ru the busiest hoar of the day, as if on
their way to the Exchange, or the Banks, bring
wi th them the energy nnd fervor of their dally
pursuit-, and engage in the exercises as if they
were a part of their business, with earnest de
termination nnd spirit. Ths prayers of the
smallest assembly aie jrot-ln*%asn -they are
registered in heaven; tor fertyeysurs a tow
faithful persons iv Boston had wept and
prayed --gainst tne great heresy of New Eng
land, which, while it denies the codinal doc
trine of the Christian faith, carries with n
much of the wealth, learning and refinement
of (he land. It seemed now that their prayers
were returning, as remarkabl*) conversions of
leading men, recently, indicated.
Another gentleman alluded to tbe unity tbat
exists among all true Christians, and with
much feeling noticed the fact that there were
present hen*, to-day, in a common brother
hood, persons from widely different sections
of our country, and various sects of Chris
tians. Thesame gentleman mentioned sever
al circumstances showing an increased atten
tion to religiou in the city.
An earnest exhortation from the leader of
the meeting, in which he called upon those
present to stand by it, and to endeavor to In
crease its numbers, till the room should be
too small to contain the daily assembly, with
appropriate and affectingexercises,brought to
a close one ot most interesting occasions ot
the kind that has yet been exjierienced in this
Why Change It.'— The city ordinance con
cerning tbe Water Worka gives to competent
plumbers the right to put up hydrants and
water flxtnrer- ou private premises, subject to
the inspection and approval of the Superin
tendent or his Assistant, thus encouraging
mechanics to keep necessary supplies, aud to
employ good workmen to carry on that
branch of business. Not content with this
mode of doing business, however, a recom
mendation has been made by the Watering
Committee to amend the ordinauce so as to
require the Superintendent to turn plumber
and have hydrant, put up and kept in order
by city employees.
Apart from the extra expense the city must
incur in employing mechanics to take from
private plumbers the work nowdoueby them,
aud thus crippling their operations,we contend
that the city ought uot to impose this extraduty
on tbe Superintendent, wbo is already over
run with work. Practical plumbers have
purchased stock and fixtures for water pur-*
poses, aud to deprive them of their business,
is tv break down branches ol trade thai ought
to be encouraged. If the city is to do work of
this kind for individuals, why may she not,
lor thesame reason, carry on other mechani
cal branches of industry, and thus compete
with tax-payers in building houses, making
wagons, paving yards and making clothes.—
If she haa the right to put up hydrants iv pri
vate yaros, she has the same right to put up
gas fixtures in private houses—a right which
the Committee on Light would not be willing
to exercise. We know it will b»- said that the
cT'y puis up gas metres, and has thu same
right to put up hydrants; but we answer, not
at all. The ciiy must control the metres to get
pay for the gas rout-timed. The control of the
hydrant, further than to see it is a good oue,
is aot at all necessary to insure pay for the
water. We really hope that the Council will
preserve the ordinance as it is, and let the
Superintendent devote bis time to something
more important than putting up hydrants.
The Bauer of the Richmond and York River
Railroad Company is to be erected between
Dock and CUT** and Sid and With r-ireeie; and
as tbe Company are now haviug the Inunda
tion dug, preparatory to building, the Council
ough* to decide at once what party will have
to run a wall ou the south line of Cary atreet
to prevent Us caving in and thus becoming
impassable. Tne law only requires au Indi
vidual, wheu improving hispro|»erty, to uoti
fy the adj.lining owner of the character of the
improvement, s«o that he may protect bis in
terests, aud If be fails to do so, and damages
follow, they fall upon the damaged party.—
The same law, we presume, applies alike 10
corporation*, and It' so, the city will have to
protect Cary street by running a wall along It
from -Mrd to with—and especially so, as she
sold the lots to the railroad company tor its
depot, and gave the grade of DochVßtrcet, with
the level of which the depots are m be built.
The York River Bond will be completed to
West Point *,>inetune iv June, and when fin
ish* .1 will bring to Richmond a large and val
uable trade never befoie possessed by her.—
For the road, thus far, Richmond has never
subscribed a dollar, aud in all probability will
never be ashed todo so; and tor thai reason,as
well as for the ad vantages she is to enjoy, she
should be willing to afford every facility for
its business. The railroad company owes the
city about SfyUSB for lauds purchased, and the
Council may very weil afford to relinquish
ihat claim, to have (*ary street properly pro
