The money is ready to be Htaked on Buchanan
carrying this State. Who will take the chance?
If any arc desirous call at this office.
Voter* Beware^
A ticket was shown us yesterday which looks
very much like the regular Democratic ticket of
this county, with the name of S. W. Boring left
out, aud the name of J. II. Helm written in its
place. This ticket was ’brought dowu from
Washington township, nnd undoubtedly others
of a similar diameter have been distributed in
various parts of the county. The ticket was
evidently got up with the intention of defeating
Mr. Boring by deceiving men into voting for
his opponent. Voters be on your guard. The
Know Nothings are becoming desperate, and
will not hesitate to stoop to the vilest and most
contemptible tricks in order to secure the elec
tion of one or two county officers. Look well
to your tickets, and see that every name is right
before depositing it in the ballot box.
The CiIaIk.
Tho conflict we to-day enter upon will disclose
the destiny of this Union. Our victory will se
cure to it a long and glorious future—will guar
antee an unbounded expansion of our free do
maiu and will happily determine the grandest
experiment man was ever engaged in, self-gov
ernment with political and religious equality.—
With our success comes the assurance of frater
nal concord between all sections of our country,
with the Arm establishment of just republican
principles. Our defeat can bo regarded in no
other light than a mournful disaster to our coun
try.
Who are tho enemies of Democracy in this
contest? Those who would destroy liberty and
6elf-goverunirut—who would prefer disunion
and anarchy among our people rather than
pence and prosperous rule—those who would
foster religious persecution and distinction —
who would trample down equality, the free Vi ft
or the birth-right of every citizen and those who
would light up over our land the torch of na
tional and of sectional proscription. The na
tive citizeus of the north aud the south will
rally under our standard; for our cause is the
cause of their common country—the adopted
citizens will vie with us in fidelity to that party
which alone of all others has stood firm in ex
tending to them equal rights and equal protec
tion—the protestuut and the catholic, the Jentile
and the Jew will be with us, for tho Democracy
only have maintained the sanctity of religious
freedom.
With such elements of success on our side
who should despond? The prospect is a bright
one—no cloud hangs upon our horizon —the
morning of the battle will give way to a well
fought day and the FOURTH OF NOVEMBER
1836 becomes THE DATE of another GLORI
OUS VICTORY OF DEMOCRACY.
It is fervently to be hoped that notwithstand
ing the heat of party excitement, the election
may pass off quietly, and that wo shall not be
obliged to record in our next issue uccounts of
bloody difficulties arising from political disa
greements.
That Vote. —T he Journal of last Friday gives
what purports to be the vote for the three Pres
idential candidates tuken at the circus on Tues
day evening last. The result as stated by the
Journal, we have reason to believo was manu
factured out of whole cloth. The vote was not
announced in the circus, and we have not been
able after diligent inquiry to find any one who
know* any thing about if.
Joseph C. McKlbben—Another Lie Nailed.
The last issue of the Journal contained a scur- j
rilous article reflecting upon the private char- j
acter of Mr. Joseph C. McKibben, one of the |
Democratic nominees for Congress. Eminating j
from the source It did, the article could have
done Mr. McKibben no harm in this county, and
we hal intended to pass it silently by. But the j
citizens of Downieville, who are, perhaps, igno
rant of the infamous character of that sheet in
this community have sent us by telegraph the
following communication. The dispatch it will ;
be seen is signed by some of the most rcspecta- 1
ble citizens of Downieville, among whom are ;
several members of the Know Nothing party.
Downieville, Nov. 2, 1856.
Editor Democrat:— The undersigned residents
of Downieville having noticed in the Nevada
Journal of Oct. 30tb. an article headed “A short
biography of Jo. McKibben” desire to say
through your paper that they have been ac
quainted with Mr. McKibben for the last six
years and kuow the statements contained in said
article to be wholly and totally false and that
Mr. McKibben since he came to this State has
alwayt and continually been industriously em
ployed in legitimate and laudable business.—
1st as Miner; 2d as Lawyer; 3d as Legislator;
4th as Federal Officer, and again as Lawyer.
The late appearance of this base, false and
contemptible slander leaves us no other means
tiian by telegraph to contradict its statement,
and we will only say in conclusion that the au
thor of said article is a malicious slanderer and
knew when he wrote it that every statement
contained in it derogatory to the character of
Mr. McKibben was false.

The Burial,
The new-fangled, mongrel combination of the
fag-ends of despised factions, called Know Noth
ingism, is now to kick its last. After a brief
and inglorious existence, it sinks into a grave,
if not infamous, at least unhonored. It is com
pletely dead in every other State in the Union
but this—swallowed by free-negro federalism,
ns was Jonah with all his sins by the monster ol
the deep. The tail of this dying reptile still
moves and shows some signs of animation in
California. It becomes the duty of Democrats
on this day to bury the carcass which has al
ready remained above ground too long to beau
inoffensive subject fora funeral. Itury it, Dem
ocrats, decently, but deeply, very deeply.—
Place over its remains and mark its grave with
this epitaph—"a bastard born, it lived without
respect and died too late by the length of its ex
istencc.’’’
Ariiivai, ok the Sonora. —The mail steamer
Sonora arrived at the Bay on Saturday last.—
She brings no later news tliuu was received by
the Orizaba, and which will be found on our j
flrst page. The Sacramento American, of Sun
day, pretends to have received later intelligence
by the Sonora, consisting of the usual amount
of political roor backs which are too absurd and
ridiculous to deceive any one. The people in
the Koines are well aware that the Presidential
contest is narrowed down between the Democ
racy und the Black Republicans, and that Mr.
Fillmore has no earthly chance of carrying the
Electoral vote of a single State. We deem it
unnecessary to caution the honest voters of this
county against the infamous falsehoods which
will undoubtedly be put in circulation on the
day of election.
Attemft at Robbery.—On Friday evening
last, ob Peter Dontian was coming from Rough
and Ready to this place, and when about two
and a half miles the other side of Hughes' race
track, a man jumped into the road and attempt
ed to catch the bridle of his horse. Donnan im
mediately drew his pistol and fired, when ihe
fellow sung out, <, 0!” and run into the bushes.
As soon as Donnan tired, a shot was tired at
him by some one concealed by the side of the
road, the ball passing through his hat. lie then
put spurs to his horse and came to Nevada.—
Donnan had his pistol cocked and his hand up
on it when the fellow attempted to stop him,
and but for this precaution, he would probably
have been robbed.
Another Fraud.—We received word from
Washington yesterday, that a spurious Demo
cratic ticket wus in circulation in that township,
with the name of W. F. Anderson, for District
Attorney, omitted, and that of T. B. McFarland
inserted in its place. Democrats, our opponents
are desperate. They are ready to creep into
office by your mistake! Look well to your
tickets, and vote your own free choice; not the
ticket of imposters.
Tue Steamer Delayed.— The agent of the
mail steamer for Panama has concluded to
postpone the sailiug of the steamer until five
o’clock to-morrow, so ns to be able to carry out
the result of the election in this State.
Suectal Police. — 1 The following men have
been appointed to act as special policemen to
day: A. B. Carley. SiYenard, John Duane, Mat.
Maguire, W. C. Monroe, Wm. lledfern, Eli
Booth, V. L. Beard, Ed. J. McGittigan, Thus.
Sisk, A. Van Stavoren, Phil Ross, Zina Sweet,
Josiah Hudson, and M. Phillips.
Torchliout Procession.— The Democracy of
this place were making preparations yesterday
for a grand torchlight procession. We go to
press at too early an hour to give any account
of the demonstration, but it will doubtless
eclipse any thing of the kind ever got up in Ne
vada.
K. N. Demonstration.— The Know Nothings
by dint of hard work, and by enlisting nlmost
every member of the secret order in the oounty,
got up a very respectable demonstration on
Saturday evening lost. The eutire party in the
county considered it a religious duty to be ou
hand. This may bo considered as the last dying
struggle of the K. N. Order. They have uo
principles to contend for. and their first defeat
will be sufficient to dissipate the party which is
now only held together by the hope of the spoils
of office.
Gen. J. M. Covarubias has been re-nominated
by the Democrats of Santa Barbara county for
the Assembly. He will be elected without op
position.
The hart Humbug.
There is a wretched and rascally faction just (
rising in this State which pretends to favor free
speech, free-pres8, free-labor, free-negroes and |
Fremont. It is made up for the most part of
those wise old rats who will never be caught,
aboard when the sinking ship goes down. K.
N'ism for a short was deemed a very safe craft
and so Ion*, these Black Republicans were devo
ted companions; but K. N.’ism grew rotten in
the hull, and before it could go down to the
depths of its dark grave, their devotion disap
peared and they come out now upon another
imposition, clothed with all the political clap
traps and catch-words which invention and the
season could furnish. Before it was “Americans
must rule America,” now it is “Congress shall
rule the territories and Americans cant rule
themselves”—before it was bitter proscription
! towards all foreigners and Catholicism, now it is
proscription towards all southerners and slavery.
They had no principles before when Know Noth
j ings. and have the tame now while Black Repub
licans. The old imposter? have put on a new
mask and all that was ever behind either the
new or the old mask was HOSTILITY TO TIIE
! DEMOCRACY. Let Democrats remember this.
On the fourth of Novcmlier 18oG another politi
! cal bubble is to burst and disappear.
Our Appeal.
Democrats! Let your motto be OUR WHOLE
UNION and OUR WHOLE TICKET. We un
derstand the Ki Yi’s and negro-worshipers ex
pect by fusing their vote and by distracting ours
to defeat several if not all on our Legislative
ticket. Defeat the infamous coalition. Scratch
no name but vote the whole ticket. Remember
these proscriptive factions arc only the two
fragments of one party, and that both are alike
hostile to free-government, to religious freedom
and equality of rights amoug native and adopt
ed citizens. If either elect their candidates to
the Legislature, or if .they coalesce and elect
some from each ticket, they both triumph.
Mark what wc predict, the representatives of
these factions will stand cheek by jowl upon
every measure which they may have to act up
on in the Legislature, and it is a consummation
devoutly wished by both, to be able to elect to
the U. S. Senate one Know Nothing and one
negro-worshiper.
Vote Eurly.
It in advisable that voters who live immedi
j ately in town should cast tlieir votes at as early
an lionr as convenient. An tinusually heavy
vote will be thrown in this place, and the polls
arc less likely to be crowded in the forenoon
than in the latter part of the day. Persons liv
ing in other precincts in the township, and who
wish to spend the day iu Nevada, are earnestly
advised to vote at their* own places before com
ing into town.
Urokk Jail.— On Sunday night three prison
ers confined in the Nevada jail made their es
cape, and arc now at large. The prisoners that!
escaped are Jim Webster, and the two Farnes
worths. Webster made his escape once before,
and was re-arrested at Sinartville by Marshal
Plnmer. The Faraeswortlis belonged to Tom
Bell’s gang of desperadoes and had been sent
to this county for trial. The jail door was fas
tened with a common padlock, which was either
picked or unlocked. A man has been employed
to watch the jail, but he must have been absent
or asleep when the escape was made, ns he knew
nothing of it until Monday morning. There
must have been culpable negligence on the part
of some one, 41s with a little care the jail can Ire
kept perfectly secure. Mr. Plnmer iB eonfi
dent that he could retake them, and would have
started after them yesterday morning had he
received any encouragement that his expenses
would be paid.
Democratic Meetings. —The most cnthusias
tic gatherings of the Democracy have been held
during the past week ut Washington, Omega,
Remington Hill, Alpha and at other points iu
the county, which were addressed by W. F. An
derson, David Belden and C. J. Lansing,
Democratic Demonstration in San Francis
co.—The Democrats of San Francisco were out
in their strength on Friday evening last. The
procession was the largest ever witnessed in
that city. It is said that more than half the vo
ters of the city were in the procession. The
Young Men’s Democratic Club numbered 2800.
The result in San Francisco is no longer doubt
ful—the Democracy are sure to elect their cn
iji'p ticket, and will roll up a good majority for
Buck and Brock.
Benefit.— Mr. II. J. McKinley will give an
entertainment, for the benefit of Mountaineer
Engine Co. No. 1. at Williams’ Hall, on Thurs
day evening, Nov. 6th. The cutertaiument will
consist of an original poem on the late confla
gration of Nevada, Shakesperinn readings. Ac.
Our citizens should encourage this enterprising
tire company, and every person owning proper
ty in this place should come out freely. Mr.
McKinley has kindly volunteered his services
for the occasion.
Sitriots Tickets.— Look out for spurious
tickets. Remember that none arc genuine un
less our county ticket is headed with the name
of S. II. Chase, for Senator.

A Fizzle,— An attempt was made on Friday
evening last to get up a German Republican
meeting in San Francisco, which resulted in a
complete failure. Not more than n hundred
persons were present, and half of these never
I saw Germany.
A Rki.ic of 76. —We' .'arn, says the New
York Mirror, that Capt. Charles II. Pratt, of
Worcester, Mass., who, during several years
past, has been successfully engaged in taking
up the wreck of the British frigate lluzzar,
whioh was sunk ut llurlgate during the Revolu
tion with a large amount of treasure on board,
iiitends to present, in behalf of our government,
and to send over in the Resolute to England, a
large cannon recently raised from the wreck,
and bearing unmistakeable evidences of its hise
toricnl associations.
Joaquin M ai kiett v turned up again.— An or
ganized band of horse thieves in Santa Cruz
County, have recently been committing exten
sive depredations upon the stock ranches in that
vicinity. The native Californians sav that the
band are under the direction of Joaquin Mauri
etta, the celebrated robber chieftain, who has
returned from Mexico. The Santa Cruz Sentinel
is informed that Joaquin had been seen by a
person who knew him well, and that a partner
of his named Pautellou stopped over niebt. re
cently, at Watsonville.
DEMOCRATS TO YOCR POST!
Animated by a firm conviction of the justice
of our cause, the Democracy of Nevada county
have labored during the canvass with a zeal
and energy deserving all commendation. They
have put their hands to the plough and have
looked not back. To-day will tell the story of
their triumph, we believe, aud demonstrate that
the hearts of the people are with that party
whose history for half a century is blended with
everything that is patriotic in the annals of our
country. That party found our flag insulted
upon the sea, our docks invaded by proud and
arrogant England, our sailors of foreign birth
dragged away to fight against the land of their
adoption. It rose up in its majesty against the
formidable power of England and making war
with success it avenged aud vindicated the na
tional honor, keeping steadily in view two great
leading objects— first to diffuse the blessings of
a free government to the greatest possible num
ber, and secondly to add to the power of the na
tiou. It has accomplished both by the liberal and
generous policy it has pursued towards those
who have come to ns from abroad. They have
added to our wealth by their industry, to our
power by their fidelity to the Union, and al
though the blessings of our liberal system have
fallen upon them ‘‘like the dews of Heaven,”
the “native and to the manor born” have lost
nothing in consequence. It has been the just
ambition too of the Democratic party to extend
the area of our vast empire aud to provide for
the mighty millions who arc to come after us.
And strong as this ambition has been in the
heart of the Democracy, still it has not gone
with the hand of the spoiler, against the weaker
nations. Our acquisitions have been made
peacefully and honorably. While the timid stood
back alarmed at the expansion of our territory,
it is the glory of that party that its sagacity ill
making these acquisitions has beeu vindicated
by the results which have flowed from them, and
now at this day there is no acre of our wide do
main with which our people would consent to
part at any prloe. Its victories in peace have
been no less noble than those in war. The
principles advocated by the Democratic party
with regard to the Public Lands, the manage
ment of our finances, the tax upon imports, are
indellibly fixed upon the Statute and there they
will remain as monuments of Democratic wis
dom. Mr. Clay and Webster lived long enough
to forget their opposition to Democratic princi
ples, and to bare witness to the sound and poli
tic measures which had sprung from the wisdom
of Democratic statesmen. No rational man
would now revive the United Slates Dank in
place of the sub-treasury, none would alter that
“judicious tariff” which lias filled our Treasury,
without burtlieuing one interest for the benefit
of another, lint all the arts have flourished,
trade Las prospered, untramelcd commerce 1ms
ploughed through every sea and free trade is
taking the place throughout the world of those
restrictions which has fettered it fur centuries.
The great leading ideas upon nil subjects for the
advancement of human happiness every where,
have bad their origin in the great mind of the
American Democracy.
Ill the relations of the States one to the other
it has avowed a theory which can alone preserve
the Union of the States upon terms honorable
alike to all State equality. In the course of
years since the foundation of the Government,
in disposing of our territories acquired by the
blood and treasure of the common country, the I
Democratic party has set its face against dis
criminations in favor of either section. It has
been content to leave to the people who go to
the territories, the regulation of their own do
mestic institutions, particularly after it had been
clearly demonstrated that Congress could uot 1
legislate upon those subjects without doing in
justice to the principle of State equality. It
looked too, to the laws of nature as a propitious
arbiter of the vexed question of domestic servi
tude as found at the south. It saw that iu the
divisiou of the territories between the north
and the south, but a very small proportion was
adupted to the production of the great staples
of the south, and the statistics of the couutry
show that nature herself has given to the north
more than live sixths of all the territory ac
quired either by purchase or conquest. There
was therefore no necessity for legislation, and
such legislation as was proposed by which one
section would be excluded from all the territo
ries was of so grossly unjust a character that
the fanatic alone could look upon it with com
posure.
Against all proscription of every character
in religion, or birth-place, or section, the De
mocracy has ever and will ever array itself. It
is against the spirit wiiich would foster monop
olies and elevate capital and wealth into an el
ement of political power. It is in favor of the
Union as it is, a Union made by the patriotic
men of the Revolution—in favor of equal jus
tice to the south and to the north—in favor of
elevating wise, prudent and experienced states
men to the Chief Magistracy, whose lives have
been stainless, in preference to charlatans and
political mountebanks, cashiered officers, bun
gling engineers, doubtful cattle speculators,
and any such failure of a man ns John C. Fre
mont. neither soldier, statesman, engineer or
anything to command the respect or admiration
of mankind or to stimulate the American youth
to deeds of honorable cutcrprize. Whose whole
strength lies at home in au appeal which is
made to sectional pride and prejudice, whose
popularity abroad is based as declared by the
English press upon the hope that his “election
will lx- the first blow towards the separation of
the United States.”
Old Shenandoah.— Our highly esteemed, pop
ular ami well known friend, Geo. H. Rogers,
has just opened a splendid saloon in the base
meut room of lyidd & Knox’s new fire-proof
brick building ou the corner of Broad and l’ine
streets, under the beautiful style of ‘-Old Shen
andoah,’’ where the real lovers of otium cum rfy
nUate may enjoy themselves to their hearts’ con
tent. An endless variety of the choicest wines,
liquors aud cigars', elegant billiard tables with
marble beds, fresh oysters stewed or in the shell,
and comfortable side-rooms for private whist or
euchre parties, are among the chief attractions
We bespeak for ‘-Old Shenandoah” a patronage
commensurate with her merit and the nceom no
aud hospitable spirit of her proprietor
The Gadsden Purchase.— The people resident
on the Gadsden Purchase, numbering ten thou
sand souls, are organizing a Territory, and are
about to elect a member to Congress.
Terrible Tragedy—Sheriff Wright Killed.
Sheriff Wright and David Johnson were phot
yesterday evening, about a ntile and a half from
this place, while in pursuit of the prisoners t! at
broke jail on Sunday night. Mr. Wright was
killed instantly, and Johnson is mortally woun
ded. They were shot through mistake by their
own friends. There were many conflicting ri -
mors in circulation last night in regard to this
gad occurrence, and we shall not attempt .0
give any particulars.
The Biggest K1»S In the I'ntoii.
On Friday last, the Democrats of Concord
raised the largest flag that floats in the Union! j
It is !)3 feet long and <10 wide, and measures
about 5000 square feet! It bangs from two,
high poles, across Main street, in front of the j
State House, and bears on the upper end an j
eagle, with the motto, “The Constitution and i
the Union,” and on the other, the names of Bu
chanan and Breckinridge. They had but four
days in which to get the flag made, the poles
prepared and erected and the flag raised, and
they could not get the flag made in Boston — j
But when the Democrats of Concord resoUc to
do a thing, they do it, as tjje result of thifease
will demonstate. Men were tdflployed to go to ,
the forest and fell the trees for the pole, and to
see it erected in season; and on the morning of
the 5th a pole about 140 feet was ready for the
Hag,—the other pole was erected in 1852. The
cloth for the flag was obtained with great diffi
culty, the Boston market being pretty nearly
drained of bunting. But it was found —about
1200 yards; and then the democratic ladies of
Concord, always ready for a good work, took
hold in earnest; the mothers, wives, sisters and
daughters of the Democrats of Concord to the
number of about seventy, assembled in Depot
Hull, and plied their nimble fingers most vigor
ously for three days, early and late, and by 5
o'clock on the afternoon of the 4th, the great
| flag was ready to fling to the breeze. And at
| 11 o'clock on the 5th, while the Democrats of
j the State were assembling by thousands, the
glorious banner of the Union was raised amid
i the cheers of the immense crowd —a noble mon
| uinent to the patriotism and energy of the Dem
! ocratic women and men of Concord.— .V. II. Pa
\ triot.
Bvck and Bbkck am, Right.—By the follow -
! ing, which we trike from the New’ York Tribune.
j it will be seen that the Republicans have little
j hopes of carrying Pennsylvania, New Jersey,
! Indiana. Illinois, or California. In Indiana the
j Know Nothings have formed a coalition with
the Republicans, and as the two parties are
working harmoniously together, they may pos
sibly succeed in carrying the State forFreniont.
The other four States which the Tribune con
s'ders doubtful, are sure to cast their vote for
Buchanan.
“We do not wish our readers to believe the
election of Fremont a fixed fact. Ale do not
ourselves believe it, and should not desire to dd
j fuse the impression, if we U.d. We wish it gcu
j erally understood that the struggle is arduous,
j and the result depends upon work yet to be
done. In spite of many cheering assurances,
j we consider the States of Pennsylvania, New
I Jersey. Indiana, Illinois, and California, still
j doubtful. AVe may carry all of them by large
| majorities, but we may also lose enough of them
to beat us in the contest. AVe consider our
chance in the House, should the election go
thither, of very little worth. AVe must succeed,
if at all, by the votes of the people. AVe cannot
count on a single slave State, anil we must ei
ther carry Pennsylvania, or losing it, carry all
! the rest of the free States. AVe strongly hope
to carry Pennsylvania. AVe feel sure it can be
carried for t .emont, hut if we were all to stop
working now, and fall to shouting over antici
pated victory, we should have no victory to huz
za over. Tins is the nakid truth, and the truth
is just what should lie set forth and realized.—
Should we lose Pennsylvania, we may possibly
succeed without her- but that, like the choice
ofFremout by the House, is only a chance. If
we carry’ Pennsylvania, it is barely possible
that we shall fail to carry States enough beside j
to give us the victory.”
What a Geiiman Said. —A German said to us i
the other day that the great bixly of German j
Democrats were sound anil would remain fo. —
He gave the reason anil said :
“In 1854 the Know Nothing party suddenly
sprang up in great strength, and threatened the
whole country. They denounced bitterly the
Dutch anil Irish—declared them a nuisance and
resolved that the term of residence before natu
ralization should be greatly extended. They in
some places drove them from the ballot-box and
shot them down in the streets. They made war
on all foreiguers. AVho stood by the rights of
the naturalized citizens then ? To whom d il
the foreign born look for the protection of their
rights? To the Democratic party; and the Dem
ocratic party stood by us like friends and broth
ers. Do you suppose we w ill desert that party
now and join with Know Nothing conventions?
The German heart is incapable of ingratitude.
The Germans know their friends and their in
; terests too well for that.”
Such were his reasons; and we thought them
j good. —Pittsburgh Post.
New Yoke.—The following sounds well and
choeringly from New Y^rk— at least to demo
cratic ears:
"We believe, says the Albany Argus that no
other political crisis in the history of this or
other States, has witnessed such a powerful re
action in public sentiment as is now going on
among the masses in favor of Buchanan and
Breckinridge.
“The democrats of the Stnte, a while ago,
disheartened by their own divisions, are now
exhilerated at the prospect of a good, old-fash
ioned, stand-up light, hand to hand, with their
t nemies. They are literally ‘eager for the fray.'
"The spirit has only to bo maintained and
acted up to to secure a triumphant majority to
the democratic cause.’’
Julius Korn, editor of the S. P. Germm Jour
nal, and lu,te a nominee of the “Peoples' Party,"
for State Senator from San Francisco, has for
mally renounced all connection and sympathy
with that organization, because they have fused
with the Republicans. Mr. Korn says the Re
publican party is the last parly on earth he
could fuse with.
The Uiihjutois Ned. —A gentleman from
Santa Barbara informs us that he knows Ned
McGowen was in Santa Barbara at the time it
was stated he was, and that part of the time he
was concealed in the church; probably the first
time Ned had been in a sanctuary in many
years. Our informant further states that Ned
left on a French barque, bound to the coast of
South America.— Alta.
New Route to California. —The grcutschcme
of the Honduras Railroad Company, with a cap
ital of $10,000,000, under a British charter, is
about to be brought out under the most favora
ble ausp ces. The d rectors are divid 'd be
tween England and the United States, and some
of the most influential linns give countenance
to the project, and appear in the directory and
as agents to procure subscriptions. The differ
ence of distance between New York and San
Francisco, as compared with the Panama route
is 1,103 miles, and the difference froip Liverpool
to San Francisco, touching at Kingston. Jamai
ca, is 831 miles. It is estimated that at the pres
ent rates of speed by steam and rail, the time
between New \ork and San Francisco can be
accomplished in thirteen days, four hours, and
that steamers can be built, and with increased
railway speed, the time can lie reduced to eight
clays, sixteen hours. The accomplishment of
this work will bring San Francisco within
speaking distance of New York.
Opinion of Bitch anax in Noiith Cahoi.iki
Tlic Warrenton News thus expresses the opi a i 0B
of North Carolina on the Cincinnati nominee
“He is peculiarly fitted to preside at the helm
of State in times of thick darkness and porten
tous glootu. During his long and brilliant ca
reer in the Senate of the United States, when
that illustrious body contained more talent and
ability than any other deliberative body on the
globe, Mr. Buchanan, according to the univer
sal sentiment of his eiiligliteued countrymen
occupied a position in the front rank of the coni
script fathers of the republic.
We speak the unanimous sentiment of the
country, and we claim fio more for hhn now
than we were always ready and willing to ac
cord to him. We have frequently remarked
and have as frequently heard others observe’
that Mr. Buchanan never made an effort on anv
question in the Senate, that would not bear a
favorable comparison with that of any other
member on the same subject. Ilis speeches
were invariably finished productions, combining
great strength of argument with unusual el*
gance of style, and characterized by profound
■ research, extensive knowledge, and a masterly
skill in debate, lie was a giant among giants.
I Nor has his vigor of intellect been in the least
j degree impaired by age. On the contrary, cx
: perience has served lo strengthen and mature
I his intellectual powers and to increase his in
| formation.”
