Haskell is our regularly au thorized Agent for the “TELEGRAPH.” both in Grass Valley and surrounding countryHe is empowered to receive subscriptions and advertisements for the office ; also to make collections for the same in any portion of the State. Mr. K. PcloMxe is our sole Agent for the Grass Vallky Tei.eckach in San Francisco. He is empow ered to receive advertisements and receipt for the same. All advertisements left with Mr, I’elouze will receive prompt attention. Life in the Mountains. Many are the reports abroad respecting the customs, habits and successes of the miners, and to the innumerable hosts that have al ready been given, we will now give publi city to our own, and we think that from an experience of several years, we can give a correct representation of the true condition of the miners among us at the present time. It is not with us now, either in point of for tune or misfortune, as it was two or three years ago. The extreme hardships of ’49 and ’SO have passed away—the days of “ flap jacks” and "pickle pork” are only remem bered as a tale that is passed ; their reality has become a romance of our history, and in their stead, the luxuries of more than a com mon life in the States are now to be found on the tables of all our industrious miners. In ’49 and ’SO, those luxuries were not to be had. In many instances, bedding and clothingwere not to be found ; money could not buy them —and the man of wealth was poor, inasmuch as he could not procure food for his stomach, or a resting place for his head. At that time, men were obliged to work, now they can live without it —and the consequence is, that ma ny do live without it, and here we might sug gest two very good reasons why there are so many now among us complaining of hard times , and first, there does not at present ex ist the same necessity for active labor that I formerly existed, the reasons of which may be found in the increase of population , and the consequent increase of commerce and the im provements and advance of agriculture; fare has been reduced to a comparative low rate, and as to clothing, it can be had at as low rates in California, as at any of our At- j lantic cities, and consequently, a man that is naturally predisposed to laziness may indulge in his favorite propensity at a comparatively small sum. We might here add that the vo-; luptuous tendencies of our climate is in no respect unfavorable to such indulgencies. A second reason which we give as a solution to the hue and cry against hard times, is to be found in the fact of the increasing confidence which our Atlantic loafers entertain towards the new world, resulting in their emigration, hopeing thereby to accumulate fortunes with out an effort, but after their arrival, not fin ding things as they had expected, being too indolent to labor, they aspire to politics or live from off the hard earned savings of re lations and friends. How often is this the case among us? We feel sure that this truth will be recognized and acknowledged by hun dreds of our honest laborers who are in the habit of furnishing means to friends who are too lazy to work themselves, and are conse quently dependant on others for support. Ah! and frequently for gambling money and for money spent in prostitution. It is thus we have hundreds among us who are constantly complaining of hard times, failure of the mines, etc. etc. Again, among those who are truly industrious, we find ma ny who are willing to hazard the proceeds of their daily labor in gaming tables in the vain hope that by so doing, they may double their weekly income, but alas! there are too many professed gamblers among us whose only bu siness is to swindle and cheat, and who are thereby supported, for a comparative honest man to reasonably hope for a moment that in this he will ever prove successful, yet, the hope is cherished, the die is cast and the man is ruined—the report to the world is, the mines are failing ! Others again who are both industrious and strictly honest, after a few unsuccessful at tempts at mining, become discouraged ; they long for the homes of their childhood ; they suffer themselves to dwindle away into stupid inactivity, when if friends do not lend a help ing hand—they sicken and die, and that too in a land of gold —a land flowing with more than the natural luxuries and riches of India. Here is an undisputed fact, and for the truth of it we challenge the world. Our mines are rich, there are numbers of them that would ‘•pay” if worked ; it is known that they will pay by economising, and that too, a larger in come than they could possibly realize in the States—but they are in California, and they will not submit. They would prefer doing nothing, gamble or any thing, to such a life of unremunerative labor ; they would rather cry the mines are “failing” and then if pos sible, feed on the world, as they say the world owes them a living. There are any amount of mining claims that will pay; there are many that will pay handsomely, and we un hesitatingly make the statement that no man who has good health can with reason say. there is no chance for money making in Cali fornia ! What we recommend is labor, in dustry and economy ; with these, three vir tues added to honesty, California could be . made to “blossom as the rose.” No land could be found so highly favored; no coun try could be found so endearing in all that is calculated to constitute a home. Society would become permanent and refined, while every mountain would yield her yellow trea sure, and every Valley would bloom with flowers and yield her fruit and herbage to the luxury of well-fed stomachs and content ed lives. The mines will pay ; the mines do pay and industry and patience do, and will in every instance reap a rich and full reward. At present, the life of a miner is rather a lonely one, owing to the absence of Ladies, but gen tlemen work on, your labors will eventually be crowned with success. Wives and chil dren will then come at your bidding; then your cloth tent or log cabin will give place to a comfortable dwelling, and then, instead of the hollow echoes of your own voice, you will be answered by the warm and innocent greetings of a beloved wife, and of affection ate and happy children. Who would not be a miner? Mining News. The most encouraging reports are brought in from the different portions of the mining region in and around Grass Valley. Nothing is more common than reports of new dis coveries of profitable leads. Immediately in the vicinity of Grass Valley we might men tion as among the most favorable, the differ ent diggings of Pike Flat, Woodpecker Ra vine, Grass Valley Slide, Old Point Diggings, Eureka Slide, Lola Montez Diggings, Boston Ravine, and in short numerous others, from all of which we hear of the most flattering reports. Negro Fiat. — On this Flat, Montgomery & Co. are receiving an average pay of an ! ounce per day to the hand. Red Dog. —From a friend recently from this place, we are informed that miners are doing a capital business in its vicinity, among which Robinson & Co. might be mentioned as working successfully at an average pay of from an ounce to S4O per day to the hand ; also Abercrombie & Co., who are in posses sion of extensive diggings, realizing a cer tainty of from Sp-6 to S3O per day to the band. New Towx on tJ sJear River. —Through the politeness of JucUfe Burgess, we are informed that a village hasroccn laid out on Bear Rii r er, three miles above Mammoth Springs. A great many miner% are said to be congrega ted in and about this place. The mines are said to be both extensive and rich. The name of the village above stated is “ Brownsville.” Beak River, North Fork. —The news from this mining region is highly flattering. A gentleman from the Mammoth Spring dig gings informs us, that in the course of a few weeks the distance between Mineral Springs and Bear Valley, will present one continued chain of ditches and flumes, Litti-e York. —We are informed that new diggings have been discovered on the cele brated Council Hill. A small company work ing it, received as the proceeds of one day’s labor the neat little purse of five pounds in dust. Boston Ravine.— The Great North Ameri can Company at these diggings have averag ed since the rain set in over twelve dollars per day to the hand. These diggings have already been washed over the second or third j time. Where is our Supervisor ?—The anxious | inquiry of many of our citizens for several weeks past has been, who or where is our street and road supervisor. Last year, under the energetic management of our worthy friend, Col. Richardson, great improvements were made in the condition of certain por tions of our roads; but at the present time, although Ihe necessity seems as great for im provement as at any other time, yet our pres ent supervisor does not seem to pay any at tention to it whatever. We suppose his ex cuse is a reasonable one, but for all that, we join our citizens in the inquiry, Where is our supervisor ? Cotillion Pakty.— The farewell cotillion party given by Mrs. Downey, at the Downey House in Rough & Ready, was well attended, and especially so by the ladies, as the strange anomaly for the mountains, of a majority in favor of the ladies in attendance actually oc curred on the mentioned. We believe that in proportion to size, for a mountain village, Rough & Ready is ahead of all others in California, in the number of respectable ladies that can be collected to gether. Mrs. Downey could not but be well gratified with the attention shown her on the occasion of her farewell party. Madam Bishop —This lady gave a concert in Grass Valley on last Wednesday evening. It was very well attended, and of course all in attendance who could appreciate good mu sic were highly delighted with the facinating and charming songstress. But there are one or two things connected with her professional travels in which we feel sure we could en lighten her to her own advantage. Madam Bishop should remember that if she wishes good houses she should pay some attention to the feelings and rights of the community from whom she expects a golden harvest, oth erwise, she cannot reasonably expect any thing but moderate ones. Query.— Does not the present state of af fairs among us require a corporation, vigi lance committee, or something of the kind ? Surely the barefaced robberies among us in dicate sufficient boldness to satisfy a reason able supposition that such things will be con tinued if there is not some legal action, taken for its suppression. What say the people ? Plankroad to Marysville. —Will our Ma rys Ville neighbors be kind enough to inform us of the latest move of their citizens upon this question. Later from the Atlantic. Through our energetic Companies, Adams & Co., and Wells, Fargo & Co., we were at an early day placed in possession of the New York Tribune and N. Y. Herald. From these we learn that the United States Senate have engrossed the J3ill establishing the territories of Nebraskaand Kansas, as brought forward by SeaatmUDouglass of Il linois. The bill was passeßn the third of March by 73 ayes to 14 noes, 10 absent. Our California Senators voted in favor of the bill. Mr. Everett did not vote ; Mr. Seward voted against and Mr. Cass for the bill. Mr. Douglass was burned in effigy in Bos ton on February 28th, on which was the in scription, ‘•'Stephen A. Douglass, author of the infamous Nebraska Bill, the Benedict Ar nold of 1854.” The Indians in Nebraska Territory are rap idly preparing to vacate their lands in favor of the white settlers, who are about emigra ting to that country in large numbers. The Omaha tribe have entered into arrangements to sell 8,000,000 acres of their land; the Ot toes have also agreed to (|jspose of between two and three million ac' jk, and a delega tion of Indians are now in Washington, ne gotiating for the salelof tlteir domain. The Gardiner Gi.atm—-Fatai. Ending op the Case. — The claims of Dr. Geo. A. Gardi ner have been proven fraudulent, and a sen tence was pronounced upon him for ten years imprisonment at hard labor in the peniten tiary of the District of Columbia upon a ver dict of his jury of guilty of forgery in the matter of a Mexican claim, upon which he recovered from the treasury of the L T nited States something over four hundred and twentv-seven thousand dollars. A few hours after the sentence, Dr. Gardiner was found dead in his cell, the supposed e#;bts of poi son. A sad accident occurred at Hartford on the afternoon of March 2d, occasioned by the bursting of a boiler in a large car factory of that city. From this explosion, eighteen per sons were killed and a large number wound-, ed. There is an upward tendency in the money market, with evidences of a considerable ac tivity at the board. The Tribune learns by the arrival of the brig Helen Jane from Truxillo, that the Gov ernment “ had without notice advanced the tannage rates 100 per cent. The American Consul had made a protest in the case of the Helen Jane, which was obliged to pay, al though the vessel had dropped anchor before the decree was promulgated.” A state of war still existed between Hon duras and Guatemala, though no fighting was going on. The country was full of arm ed robbers, and merchants were afraid to move from one port to another. JfROW Ecrope. —The news from the scat of war in the east is not of great importance. The following gleanings we take from the N. Y. Herald : The Turkish Admiral was, at the last ad vices, (Jan. 30) preparing an expedition to take arms and ammunition to- the Turkish army in Asia. The most important news is the discovery of a conspiracy got up by Russian agents to, excite the Greeks to revolt against the Sul tan. There has been a ministerial crisis at Con stantinople. The Seraskier and Capudan Pa cha have been replaced by Riza Pacha and another Turk, both supposed to be more fa vorable to peace. Redschid Pacha, however, still remains at the head of the ministry.— Omer Pacha is laid up at Widdin with typhus fever. There can be no doubt that England and France are making active preparations for a war with Russia. There are rumors that Austria and Prussia have decided to remain neutral. From the activity prevailing in all parts of Europe, we shall expect by the arrival of the next steamer to hear of very important move ments. It is thought that the central powers cannot long retain their neutrality—the fire must burn—the long pent up gasses of Euro pean tyranny must and will explode ; but as to the result, God only knows. The best that we have seex.— We have not yet had a fair opportunity for giving an impartial judgment as to the one in Grass Valley, who keeps the best cigars, but so far as our observation has extended, we unhesi tatingly state that Mr. Butts of the Epicu rean Saloon is certainly the most deserving of praise, inasmuch as his cigars are the best we have seen. Indeed they are good enough for any man to puff at. Mr. Butts is a long man, and as a natural consequence, keeps long cigars. He keeps all lengths however, and all sorts and qualities, either of which can be had by applying at the “Epicurean.” Pioxeer. —Through the attention of Wells, Fargo & Co., we have been placed in posses sion of a number of this very interesting Cal ifornia periodical. We certainly think it an honor to our State and as it is the first of the kind that has been issued, we w r ish them great success, while at the same time we can but express our hope that the Pioneer may live to see and rejoice over the prosperity of many of the same character that will undoubt edly follow in its footsteps. Query. —A correspondent of the Golden Era says that there are 17 beautiful and mar riageable young ladies in Nevada. How ma ny anxious hearts can 17 beautiful and mar riageable young ladies make iu a village so renowned for the'gallantry of its young gen tlemen as our enterprising neghbor Nevada ? For the Telegraph. Rough and Ready, April Ist, 1854. Mr. Editor : In a former communication I hinted at a few of the evils arising from the discovery of gold on the Pacific—and promised at a con venient season that I would give you the oth er side of the question. The treaty with Mexico, securing to the U. States her vast and rich possessions upon the Pacific, was made prior to the discovery of gold, and independent of the gold excitement, the population of this Territory have been of slow growth —and perhaps a century might have passed before it would have entertained a population sufficiently large to have given t it the commanding notice which it now re ceives from its sister States. The rich valleys on the coast, together with those bordering on the great rivers of the State, would have been dotted in time by the restless wanderer from the East, while the immense territory in the mountains would have remained unbroken by the hand of civi lization until the resurrection morn. The announcement of the discovery of gold in California produced a kind of electric shock upon the American people. The pleasurable emotions of which have not yet passed away. A new impetus was given to business in the commercial world ; a disposition to emigrate was awakened, unprecedented, which contin ues to the present time, the results of which, ' our cities and towns and mountains fully show. In the short space of five years from a small trading post on the Pacific. San Fran cisco, has arisen to be the third city in the Union, so far as commerce is concerned, and in population, exceeds that of the city of Bos ton after it had been settled two hundred years. Judging from the past, San Francis co has a glorious future. When the Atlan tic and Pacific Railroad shall have been com pleted with double track, (as sure it must;) when the revolution in China shall have been decided in favor of the liberal party—when Commodore Perry's mission shall have been fulfilled in opening the ports of the Japanese to the commerce of the world, —when the Sandwich Islands shall have been annexed to the United States (as snre they will be ]) when the two great oceans shall have been united by an Isthmus route, so that the larg est class ships can pass with, ease, —when the wants of the Pacific shall have been properly consulted, and ocean steamships of adequate strength, speed and numbers shall have been given us.—when the commerce of the world shall be revolutionized, and we shall com mand the trade of all nations, all Europe must pay tribute to San Francisco by trans mitting their fabrics destined for the East through our hands; the wealth of China, Ja pan, and the Islands of the Pacific must pass through the emporium of California, en route for the Atlantic States and Europe ; all this, and much more than I have suggested, must manifestly take place within the next twenty years. Mr. Clay in his great speech on the floor of the Senate Chamber in 1849, said that the cash capital of the world did not ex ceed twelve hundred million dollars. The youthful State of California has already ship ped from her shores within the last six years about one third of that amount. What other state, however old or populous it may be, has done as much in the same time for laboring humanity? “The everlasting hills” are be ing worked down by the untiring hand of the miner ; the valleys are dotted with cities and towns of no mean importance ; agricultural interests are keeping pace with the demands of the country. The same causes are now acting as heretofore, only in an increased ra tio to make this State one of the first in point of wealth and population, and San Francisco second to but few cities in the world. J. B. B. Poetry.— We confess ourselves highly par tial to real poetic effusions, but as few among us are gifted with the genius necessary for the writing of good poems, we think, as a general thing, we had best confine ourselves to prose. Good prose is certainly easier to write than good poetry, therefore, unless the poetry be very good, we would prefer that our contributors confine themselves strictly to “plain clothing.” Daily paper at Diamond Springs.— Thro’ Wells, Fargo & Co., we are in receipt of the sixth number of the Daily Advertiser, a neat little daily, published at Diamond Springs, Eldorado County. From a glance over the columns of this paper, we see they are well posted up in the news of the day. The en terprise is a new one for a mountain town, and speaks favorably of the enterprising vil lage in which it has been commenced. “Long may it Wave.” Apology.— Owing to the press of other matter, we are compelled to omit a great portion of our editorial. A correspondence by “ Civitas” was also in consequence of this omitted for the next issue. In the meantime the author will oblige us by sending in his name, as we have a rule not to publish cor respondences without the names of their au thors. Another large Lcmp. —Sn last Monday we saw a large and handsome piece of Gold quartz, valued at about fifty dollars, it was gotten about one foot and a half from the sur face of the ground in a lot East of the Win chester Mill. Emigration. —Letters received in the inte rior state that there will be a large emigra tion to California this season, by way of the Plains, from the Western States.— [Alta Cali fornian. Lively Times. —We do not at any time re member having seen so many strangers in Grass Valley as at the present time. Our streets are filled with ladies & gentlemen whom we suppose are visiting our beautiful village as a kind of relief from the confinement of city life in the Valley and Bay cities. We hope they are satisfied with the change, and should they be so favorably impressed with our mountain home as to select it as the place of their future residence, we will not only congratulate them with their good taste, but will also bid them a hearty welcome as citi zens. We are pleased to see quite an in crease in the number of miners in our vicini ty within the last week or two; they cannot but do well, and surely this is what they de serve. Lee & Marshall’s Circus. —Bear in mind the approaching exhibition of Lee & Marshall’s Circus in Grass Valley on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, the 12th and 13th of this month. That the exercises upon the occasion, will be highly interesting we doubt not as added to the regular exhibitions of this com pany, several new and highly interesting fea tures have been added during the past win ter. Life on the Plains. —We are informed that this long lookcd-for work, from the pen of Old Block, is now before the public. Mr. Delano informs us that he is in daily expec tation of a large supply, the work having been published in New York. This book is of an entirely different character from the Penknife Sketches, being of a more historical nature. We bespeak for them a rapid circu lation. TpST' By an advertisement in another col umn, it will be seen that Gardiner & Kirk have taken the stand in Sacramento lately occupied by Curie Brothers, known as the “ Post Office Literary Depot.’ 1 Those wish ing anything in their line will find Messrs. Gardiner & Kirk gentlemen of the right stamp. The Russian Japan Squadron. —The Robe rta, which arrived yesterday, touched en route from China at Loo Choo, where she left at anchor two frigates, one steamer, and a store-ship, being a portion of the Russian Ja pan or East India Squadron. —[Times and Transcript. Grand Raffle.— We are authorized to say that the tickets for Lamb’s Fourth Grand Rattle are all sold, or neaidy so, and that the raffle will most assuredly come off on next Saturday evening at the new jewelry shop on Main street. The Lyceum. —The debate on the question of “Ladies Legal Rights” was ably discus sed on last Monday evening,—decision in the negative. On next Monday evening, the At lantic and Pacific Railroad question is to be debated. Gentlemen and Ladies are invited to attend. Temperance Notice.— There will be a pub lic installation of the officers of the Cadets of Temperance this evening, at o'clock, at Rev. Mr. Simmons’ Church. Address from Rev. Israel S. Deibl. p£~ We are again brought under obliga tions to Meyer Brothers for New Orleans and Cincinnati papers, also for Harper's Maga zine and a volume of Ten Thousand a Year. Take Notice.— The Public will please take notice that from this date Mr. G. W. Wood worth is no longer agent for the Grass Valley Telegj-aph. Hon. J. W. Dawley will accept our thanks for papers and public documents from the Capital, Sacramento. — Adams & Co.—To this express office we are greatly indebted for express favors generally during the past week. pS* We would call the attention of our readers to the Sacramento and Marysville ad vertisements in another column. New Stage Line from Grass Valley to Illinoistown and lowa Hill.— We are in formed that a first-rate four horse coach will leave Grass Valley every day at 8 o’clock A.
