ESTRAY. —Found among
the hills near Camp Opera, Two
California Horses, one a large
sorrel, with fonr white feet, the other a
pinto horse, no brands perceptible. They
arc in Rad order, having been left by Joa
quin. The owners are requested to come
forward and prove property and take them
away. Inquire of E. 1‘ BEATTY,
ml'j J usiice of the Peace, in Seco.
Pron:c no\. — ln California wc have some
strange laws, ami still more strange ways
of administering them. For instance, we
have a law' for the protection of foreign
miners; chief among our foreign popula
tion arc the Chinese. It is well known that
the Celestials are prompt in their payment
of taxes, and it is equally notorious that
they receive no protection whatever, but
present to the ruffian of every nation an
easy prey and rich booty. Among the many
otilruges to which they have been subjected
lately, there has occurred one which, not
ending in loss of life or limb is as ludicrous
as novel. Two or three of these peaceful
creatures were traveling along the road to
wards the Hill, freighted as usual, when
they were accosted by a band of Indians,
and ordered forthwith to pay their foreign
mineis tax ! John at first treated the mat
ter with contempt, and essayed to proceed
on his journey. But this “Wally” deter
mined to prevent, unless his demands were
complied with:—“John, must pay tax—
uo Americana—no pay, no dig— dinero,
shoot!” “You no collector—no Americana,
me pay —tieuc paptl .” And so they conti
nued, “ Wally” demanding the tax, and
John insisting that he had no right to
collect it, and that he had a receipt, until
at last “ Wally” cut short the discussion
by leveling his old gun and threatening to
kill all who resisted payment. This was a
clincher. John had recently got so much
of this protection, that he thought the best
way was to comply with the demand, and
accordingly pulled out his purse and each
one in the crowd paid over to the Indians
the sum of $3, one month’s tax for the
protection of foreign miners ! “ Wally”
immediately decamped; John came into
town, made his complaint, and received for
his consolation the intelligence that nothing
could be done for him
Volunteer Gulch.— This rich old pla
cer, far from being exhausted, still yields
freely to the industrious miner. It can
only be worked during and for a short
time after rain, but it makes up in quanti
ty for all such lack of opportunity. Du
ring the week we saw a “right smart show ’
of gold, amounting to from $lB to $2O, the
result of two men’s labor, for about three
hours. This was taken out by peans of
the old rocker. What an amount of gold will
be obtained here, with an abundant supply
of water, by the system of ground sluicing,
which will then be generally adopted.
Angel’s Camp. —The water from the
Union Company has reached this camp, and
we have no doubt the expectations of all
will be shortly realized. It is well known
that the mining ground around here is rich
and extensive, and we expect to see a large
and permanent town established here. It
is one of the oldest camps in the county,
and has turned out au immense amount of
gold each season
Steep Gulch. —The water still runs
here, and a few miners are busy, making
good wages.
