Democratic Primary Ejection. -The primary
election for delegated to the County Conven
tion came off on Saturday hint. Notwithstand
ing the great exertion of the friends of the

Fatal Accident. —A man of the name of Wil
liam Brown who was working on the South
Ynba Hitch, near Bear Valley, was killed on
Friday Inst by the fulling of a tree, lb 1 was
standing some three hundred feet from the tree
when it fell, and from some unaccountable rea
son, probably from four, ueglectcd to get out of
tho way when the tree commenced falling, lie
was struck by tho top of the tree and Instantly
killed. 11c was born in county Meath, Ireland,
and formerly worked as a deck hand on the
steamer Southerner, running between New York
and Charleston. He had in his pocket sixty
two dollars in money, and a gold watch, which
are now in the possession of James Whurtcnby,
and will lie delivered to his relatives whenever
they can be found.
Soitii Yciia Ditch. -The proprietors of this
ditch are using every exertion for an early
completion of the enterprise. About two hun
dred men are constantly at work upon it, and It
is expected that the waters of the South Yuba
will la 1 running in it by December or January
next. The length of time required to run the
tunnel through tho divide between Steep Hol
low and Deer ereek hue been the principal draw
back to the early completion of the work. This
tunnel will be thirty-two hundred feet in length,
and about twenty-two hundred feet has already
been excavated. In order to expedite the work
a shaft lias recently been sunk, striking tho tun
nel about mVwuy, ami from this shaft the tun
nel is now iicing driven both ways, and the
earth raised by means of a steam engine. By
means of this shaft the work is now carried on
in four places, instead of two as heretofore. —
As soon as this tunnel Is completed, the ditch
will bn ready to receive the water. Another
tunnel lietwcen Steep Hollow and Bear River,
about three hundred feet in length, will be fin
ished in the course of a couple of weeks.
Shooting Affair at Washington. — A very
serious shooting affair occurred at Washington,
in this county on Friday last. A stranger came
into the place to purchase provisions, and some
of the citizens being suspicious that lie might
be one of Tom. Bell's gang of robbers, under
took to arrest him. lie was armed with a re
volver, and resisted the arrest. Some twenty
or thirty shots were tired, and one of the citi
zens of Washington was wounded in the side,
and the stranger received a flesh wound in the
leg. He made his escape, however, and got off,
but came back in about an hour, and gave him
self up.

Gov* Reeder on Kanun Affair#.
The coramittc which visited Kansas under the
direction of Congress, composed of two Repub
licans and one Democrat, in the discharge of the
duties required of them, have submitted two re
ports, differing widely in the manner in which
facts are regarded, as well as in the deductions
arrived at. The bias which is engendered by
sectionalism is visible in these reports, and it
is only by a thorough examination of all the
testimony educed, that we are enabled to arrive
at anything like an impartial judgement, in ref
ernce to the questions at issue.
Amongst the testimony brought to light, how
ever, are letters written to private friends by
Gov. Reeder, which must seriously affect his
private, as well as his public character, and are
well calculated to impair the confidence of dis
interested men in the cause which he and his
associates are promoting with a zeal worthy of
a better cause. The following extracts from
his pen, contained in letters to private individ
uals, show a very different state of mind with
regard to the conduct of the Free State party,
from that which he haB disclosed the public, and
is the best and strongest evidence that the Free
State party, in undertaking to set up a legisla
ture and laws in opposition to those established
in conformity with the laws of the Udited States,
have been wrong from the Is'ginning:
“Nor do I see how you can raise, in the Su
preme Court, any point as to the validity of the laws,
except the one of their removal to the mission.
I have not, however, examined the case; still, I
shm/ld think that a few free State men on the jury
would he a surer reliance than the Supreme Court. —
I should hesitate long before spending my mon
ey on the latter.”
“As to putting a set of laws in operation in
opposition to the territorial government, my
opinion is confirmed instead of being shaken;
my predictions have all becnv*rdied so far, and
will be in future. We will he, so far as legality is
concerned, in the wrong; and that is no trilie, in so
critical a state of things, and in view of such
bloody consequences.”
* * * * * •
“Hut I want you to understand, most distinct
ly, that I do not talk thus to the public nor to
our enemies. I may speak my plain and pri
vate opinion in letters to our friends in Kansas,
for it is my duty: but to the public, ns you will
see by my public letter, 1 show no divided front.”
(lov. Reeder's Letters.
There is a direct and palpable suggestion in
the first of the above ext racts to pack a jury, to
accomplish what he and his confederates are
afraid to trust to the Supremo Court. In the
language employed by Gov. Reeder, there is ex
hibited a laxity of moral principle, which we
could scarcely have looked for in one occupy
ing the high social and political position, of
which he has been deemed worthy. In this too,
speaking sincerely to private friends, he virtu
ally surrenders every question as to the “valid
ity of the law*,” enacted by the legislature of
Kansas.
In the second extract, the same admission of
the illegality of the proceedings of those acting
in opposition to the territorial government is re
peated. We arrive at the truth through the
channels of of a bad morality, yet it is none of
the less the truth, for here Gov. Reeder is speak
ing in private with frankness to a friend, the
sincere convictions of his mind.
The concluding paragraph w ill, above all,
challenge admiration on account id’ the cool au
dacity with which the Honorable author uvows
his own turpitude. Many politicians who con
ceal from the world their real sentiments, try
indeed to conceal the liypoerucy from them
selves. A party which can follow and “shriek
,£ur freedom” under such a leader as this must,
in the end, find Itself demoralized beyond the
hope of recovery, and gather to itself all the ob
loquy which belongs to the degraded character
of the chief uctor.
Finn Organization, Our citizens have re
cently formed an organization for the purpose
of protecting the city from fire. A citizens
watch of six persons w ill lie detailed every night,
whose special duty it will lie to guard against
tire. Mr. J. C. Malbon has been appointed Cap
tain of the watch, and will give his entire atten
tion to the matter. Those- who have entered
into the arrangement will be required to take
their turn on the watch about once a month,
and to pay one dollar a month or twenty-five
cents a week, which will be applied to paying
tin- Captain of the watch. None but known
citizens or the place will be allowed to act on
the watch. It is to he hoped that all the citi
zens of Nevada will give their proportion of
time, and assist in paying the expense of this
organization. A committee of superintendence
has been appointed, of which I. Williamson, Esq.
is chairman, and any further information in re
gard to the organization can lie obtained by np
plylng to him.

To Geo. Welch, of the Pioneer Book Store,
for the first delivery of utluntic papers, received
by the last mail steamer.
To J. E. Hamlin, of Broad street Book Store,

We refer our readers to the advertisement of
H. llentsch’s Banking house and Assay office.
This house is considered the most reliable for
eign Banking house in San Francisco.
Fremont on tht Mine*.
The advocates of Col. Fremont, in urging
hisclaims to the rote of California, have referred
to his career of twenty-one days in the United
States Senate, during which time, it is said by
them he distinguished himself by his zeal and
industry in behalf of the interests of this State.
We give below the seventh section of a bill in
troduced by him, into that body, for the pur
pose of regulating the working of the mines.—
At that time, Col. Fremont’s authority, on all
subjects relating to California and its wants was
paramount. He was supposed to know more
about the mines and mining, than any other
who had returned from the modern El Dorado.
Iiut fortunately, high as was his authority, there
were others there possessessed of information,
who saw the error of imposing taxes and bur
thens upon the hardy miner, nnd the wisdom of
the statesmen of the Senate at once rejected the
iniquitous proposition and no man since has
thought of reviving the measure.
It is one of the many things which attest the
henificence of the general government, that a
proposition like this made with the view of ad
ding streams of revenue to the Federal Trea
sury although made by the representative of the
people proposed to I»e taxed, yet met with no
favor from the Legislature into which it was
introduced. If such be the character of the
measures so industriously framed by Fremont,
our state is neither indebted to his zeal or wis
dom.
“Sec. 7. And be it further enacted, That the re
spective Agents shall demand and receive for
the use of the United States for a permit to
work a placer by manual labor, at the rate of
dollars a month, and for a permit to work
a mine with machinery, at the rate of dol
lars a month, for as many months as the appli
cants shall demand, not exceeding twelve
months in either case; but new permits may lie
granted to the same persons at the expiration
of the first with a right to continne operations
in any place in which he was working.”
K.N. Convention*.—A County Convention of
the K. N's. was held in this place on Saturday,
for the nomination of candidates for county of
ficers nnd members of the Legislature. The
following ticket was placed in nomination:
Far State Senate—A. A. Sargent.
Fur Auemblymen —J. F. Woodard, Con
nnrd, Anderson, Joseph Heritage, Dr. l'ike.
Sheriff —J. II. Helm.
Treasurer —James Dick.
Clerk —Thomas p. llawley.
Dmtnet Attorney- T. 11. McFarland.
Public Adminutratar —V. (J. Hell.
Coroner —II. H. Hosmcr.
A. H. Dibble, Esq., of Grass Valley, was unan
imously recommended as a suitable candidate
for Congress.
A muss meeting was held In the evening, and
as they prudently waited till the democratic pri
mary election had closed, considerable of a
crowd was at one time in attendance. The
meeting was addressed by H. C. Whitman, Mr.
Hrewstcr, and others. Little enthusiasm was
manifested.
Stii.i. tiikv COME.—The Hon. Thos. O. Pratt
and lion. James A. Pearce, two Senators now
representing the Slate of Maryland in the Sen
ate of the United Stntes have come out anil ta
ken ground for Huclmnan and Hreckenridge.—
They are both “old line whigs.” Mr. Pearce
has been in the Senate for the last fourteen
years and is now serving his third term. Mr.
Pratt was elected in 1850 to till a vacancy of
two years in the Senate and on the same day
was elected for the full term of six years to
commence at the expiration of the former term,
a compliment rarely paid to the most eminent
tor ability and statesmanship. Their influence
is a tower of strength which will secure the
State for the nominees of the democratic party
by a majority of thousands.
Ai.ways was noon.—The closing portion of
Mr. Whitman's speech on Saturday night last,
which consisted of a long peroration from Mr.
Webster’s reply to llnyne, showed that that cel
ebrated burst ot patriotic eloquence has lost
none of its popularity. It was applauded by
the hundreds of democrats w ho made up the lar
ger part of the assembly. An enthusiastic K.
N. just from the convention was heard to ex
claim after the applause had subsided that he
didn't think much of the first part of tin* speech
but that the last part was ‘*d d good.”—
“Good” said a waggish democrat near him.—
“V°u are right. I always did like that part,”
whereupon our K. N. friend moved off with an
expression of doubt on his intelligent counte
nance which plainly said I dont exactly save.
Free Speech.—On the 4th of July at Farm
ington, Mass.. Win. Lloyd Garrison, the aboli
tionist, and supporter of Fremont got off the
following, which was received with cheers and
uprourous applause:
‘•To-day I disown the American flag as the
symbol ot unequalled hvpocracv and trunsccnd
ant oppression and casting it into the broad At
lantic, defy all the waters to wash out its bloody
stains. To-day I renew my accusation against
the American Constitution, that it is a covenant
wti; death and an agreement with hell, which
ought to be annulled now and forever.”
The glorious privilege which belongs to eve
ry American of uttering his opinions freely up
on all subjects, has grown into a watchword,
with a party who are aiming to get control of
the government. It is a mortifying sign of the
degeneracy of patriotism our day, that this priv
ilege is so foully abused, and that anywhere on
ainericun soil such sentiments as the above quo
ted. are he*d with tolerance. When, howev
er. we reflect that the men who shield such rank
treason under the pretext of free speech, w e are
kd to wonder where this sacred right had taken
refuge at the period when the immortal Webster
was ostracised from Fanieuel Hall because of
his devotion to the Union. ••Consistency thou
art a jewel.”
Biu.fAKn Saloon. —Tbe Saloon of our old
friends Harrington A Patterson, Hussey A Rog
ers’ building Main street, is being fitted and fur
nished in elegant style and will be opened to
the public on to-morrow (Thursday) evening.—
The proprietors are well and favorably known
as the late proprietors of Willson's Exchange,
Broad street, and their host of friends will find
them as accommodating and polite in their new
as at their old place of business.
Steifel A Cohn, of the Philadelphia Store,
advertise in another column to sell goods at
reduced prices, to save the trouble and expense
of moving them to their new brick store.
Put it down. —Some frantic individual who
heard the highly Websterian effort of Mr. Whit
man, the ‘-speeches of A. A. Sargent and others
on Saturday night last rushed down to the tele
graph office and let off the following which we
find in the California American. “Put Nevada
down as good for Fillmore for one thousand ma
jority.” If that man wasn’t one of the fortu
nate or rather unfortunate nominees of the K.
N. convention he was surely bitten by the tar
antula. A thousand majority for Fillmore—he
may thank his stars if he gets a thousand votes
in the county. We hardly recognize him as iu
the field. The Republicans will get a consider
able vote here, but in November next Fillmore
will be no where, or else “bowed between two
mighty burthens.”
Fost-Offick Appointment. —We are pleased
to learn that J. H. Boardman Es<i., has received
the appointment of Post Master at Grass Valley,
vice E. Mathcwson, resigned. No better selec
tion could have lieen made by the Post. Master
General, and we learn that it gives general sat
isfaction. Mr. Mathewson retires from the “cares
of office,” after having discharged the duties
faithfully during the last three years.
John Crowe. —This person who was ordered
out of California by the Vigilance Committee,
has published in the New Orleans Delia a card
which shows the conduct of the corn littce in no
enviable light. Accompanying the card, are
the certificates of some of the most respectable
citizens of New Orleans, including the Mayor,
the Judge of the Fourth District Court, the late
Judge of the First District Court, the Sheriff'
and several city and police officers, to his uni
form character for honesty and Industry while
he resided in that city. In addition he produ
ces from the files of the Delta an official adver
tisement of Columbia Fire Co., No. f>, to the
effect that his accuser really did forfeit his good
character in New Orleans, by misappropriating
the funds of the company while Secretary v of
the same.
It seems that Crowe was not accused of hav
ing committed any crime in this State, but sole
ly upon the information of one Whaling of his
being a fugitive from justice from New Orleans
he was convicted and banished; an accusation
sufficiently refuted by the evidence adduced by
him from the best sources.
Sierra Cointv Democratic Convention.—
The democracy of Sierra county held a conven
tion on the 29th nit., and nominated Bcnj. Hall
for State Senator, and Miles and Coyle
for Assemblymen.
The delegates elected to the State Convention
are P. J. White, P. Dunlavy, S. liurris, Jos.
Rapp, F. Anderson, W. Gearlmrt, John Cox,
Chas. Cochran, Chas. Thomas, Sam. Cowden,
Edward Casey and J. Lefevre. The delegation
is said to Is; unanimously iu favor of Hon. Jo
seph McKibben for Congressman from the nor
thern district.
Harmony characterized the action of the con
vention and a redeeming triumph is anticipated.
The Springs Rising. The Shasta Republican
says the streams throughout this portion of the
mines have risen with unusual rapidity within
the last ten days. We have noticed between
this place and Middletown that many of the gul
ehes which a week ago were entirely dry have
now a small rivulet running through them.—
The same tiling 1ms been observed in other por
tions of the county. The water in the Clear
Creek Ditch has. we are told, risen four inches
within the last week. This rising of the streams
betokens early rains.
The same encouraging signs have been ob
served in this and the adjacent counties. We
pray for the springs to rise. A winter like that
of ’49 would be the making of our whole State.
Combination. —Sol. Lewis has combined the
Cigar and fruit business. lie will be found on
the west side of Pine street, near the Post office
with a large stock of the finest brands of cigars,
and a supply of the most delicious fruits of the
season.
Liqcor Store. —Persons in want of a superior
quality of Liquors mid wines will find it to their
advantage to call on D. I). Jones, second door
below A. Block A Co. Ile has on hand the best
article of champaign we have tasted for a lonir
time.
We understand that the Grass Valley Tebyrnph
is to Ik; removed to this place, and will lie made
the organ of the Black Republican party.
Politics in Italy.—Many of the lending Eu
ropean reformists believe that Italy is on the
verge of a grand insurrection. The signs of a
general revolt have of late been more frequent,
and even the army is reported to be discontented.
The French occupation question is again be
ing agitated in England, and Lord John Rus
sell has made a speech ndvoenting a demand
that Napoleon should withdraw his troops from
Rome. Trouble may yet arise out of this mat
ter.
Florence Potter.—Ou Thuredny, Aug. 28th.
,t ‘ r pending dispute about “Little Flor
ence" was brought to a close In Downievilie-
Judge Smith deciding that it was best to con
sign her to the keeping of Mrs. Jessup, sister of
Estelle Potter, whom the Sierra Cituen speaks of
as a lady in every respect qualified for the res
ponsible trust. The conditions are that Florv
is to lie taken H-om the stage and sent to school
until she shall have attained an age of discre
tion at which she can choose for herself. The
trial is said to have been a deeply interesting
one, in the course of which the imputed stain of
illegitimacy was removed from the little girl.—
After the d cision. Flory gravely inquired, "and
who do I belong to now ?”
The Napoleon Dynasty.— According to the
Paris eorrcs|K>udent of Le Sard of Brussels, the
special commission appointed by the Emperor
Napoleon some time ago, to examine into an
other delicate family matter—the differences
between the Princess of Canino and her hus
band—has now decided upon the still more
important question of the validity of Prince Je
rome's first marriage with Miss Patterson, in
America, a matter which was referred by’ the
imperial nephew of the person most concerned
to the same discreet counsellors. The result of
the investigation is, that the validity of the
marriage, which, to the great offence of Napo
leon 1. was always maintained by the Pope, and
a divorce consistently refused by the Holy See
is now confirmed by the Imperial Commission’
and the consequence is, that a young sous-Lieu
tenunt in the French army, the grandson of
Prince Jerome and Miss Patterson, must be rec
ognized as a legitimate memberof the Napoleon
dynasty, and that Prince Napoleon, the sou of
Jerome by his secoud marriage, w ould be ex
eluded.
Gamblers.— It is complained, thatQuincv in
Plumas county, is infested with gamblers. * The
“pile” of one was recently seized by a const i
ble for debt.
Drmorratlc Meeting nt Orleans Fin'
At a meeting of the Democrats of the tov L i
of Eureka, held at Orleans Flat, on Saturday,
August 30th, called for the purpose of perfect
ing the organization of the party of the town
ship, and to ratify tlie nominations of the na
tional Democratic Convention. Wm. Taylor,
Esq., of Humbug, was elected Chairman, and
Wm. C. Wood, of Orleans Flat, Secretary.
H. M. Moore, Esq., explained the object of the
meeting.
On motion of R. B. Moyes, Esq., n committee
of three, consisting of Messrs. Moyes, Fenn and
Moore, was appointed to draft resolutions ex
pressive of the feelings of the meeting, and
repeated the following, which were adopted.
Rewired, That the Democratic party of the
township of Eureka, cord.ally ratify the nomi
nations of the National Democratic Convention,
at Cincinnatti, and heartily approve the plat
form adopted by that body.
Resolved, That while we view the National,
State, and County conventions as the only true
authority for Democratic doctrine, the Demo
crats of Eureka Township, in a spirit of concord
declare it to bo their most anxious desire that
the party shall come before the people free from
local issues.
Resolved, That while as good citizens we will
support the different officers of the government
in the discharge of the duties incbinlient upon
them, we feel that all questions connected with
the acts of the vigiia ice coinmitUe of San Fran
cisco, are local in their natinre. anil that it would
lie unwise, and inexpedient lor the Democratic
party to incorporate anything in regard thereto
in their platform, until! forced upon them by
other organizations.
Resolved, That for the more perfect organiza
tion of the Democratic party, we recommend to
the Democrats of the township the formation of
Clubs in the different precints, to be held with
open doors, at which the membt rs of other par
ties can be present as spectators, and when a
majority of the members of the Club see tit. lie
invited to take part in their discussions.
Resolved, That as the Democratic party relies
for success upon the discriminating intellgence
of the American people, we urge upon the Dem
ocrats of this township the distribution of such
pamphlets and papers among the members of
other parties as the Clubs may be able to ob
tain.
Resolved, That we view courteous anil gentle
manly discussion, in public, as tending to the
formation of a correct public sentiment, and
that we invite the speakers of the democratic
party to visit as many of the precincts in the
township as possible and that we will unite with
the other democratic organizations in the coun
ty for the purpose of making such arrangements
as will best attain this end, but in consequence
of our distance from the eounfy seat, we rely
upon the central organization, to perfect the ar
rangements.
Resolved, That we re in favor of the nomina
tion to office of those, and those alone, who are
honest, capable, and faithful to the constitution.
Resolved, That these resolutions, with the pro
ceedings of this meeting, be published in the
Nevada Ikmocritl.
