Wc have received from Judge Cleary, of Mariposa, specimen* of liis auriferons I otic of Quartz, situated on (•entry’s Gulch, eight miles from Fly Away. The vein from which the rock was taken, was discovered on or about Un> last of January, and is owned jointly hy Qie Judge and five others. The course of the vein is near ly due East and West, with a thickness of some four* teen inches, and walls of slate well defined but very hard. The rock will pay some five hundred dollars per ton, the gold coining some nineteen dollars per ounce. The ledge has been traced for over a mile, and wherever opened has been found to contain gold. One and a half miles from the vein they have discovered a fine water power, with a supply sufficient for run ning twenty-five stamps for eight months during the year. Great expectation* arc formed as to the yield from the lode—and certainly, judging from the aj»- pearanco of the openings we saw, parties have no rea son to fear a failure in the working of the same. The ledge, or vein, is off the Grant, being one mile and a half from the North Fork of the Merced River. This section of our County, wc predict, will prove very rich when fully developed—the gold found being of an ex cellent quality, and very coarse. As Antfmm of the Brßi.no* Nonplussed.— " There is but one step between the sublime and ridi culous,” was a trite and truthful saying of the Empress Josephine. Wc never heard of a maxim more forcibly illustrated and applied than in the following conver sation that occurred between an Englishman and an Irishman, while contemplating Niagara Falls ; Englishman "Do yon behold, Patrick, yon stu pendous cataract— and tell me if you arc not filled with awe at the magnificent phenomena before you ? Hear its voice of thunder! Behold its bows of glory! View its terrible 1 eights, and the stupendous and everlasting leap of the water over those frowning rocks! See it glides—it speaks—lt falls!” Patrick —“ And sure, sir, what’s to hinder it!” We should like such an amateur of the sublime to comment on the Yoscmito Falls, over the rocks, at an elevation of 2,200 feet. lie would probaby say: “ How can any one hinder it?” The States.—We find the following tilde in one of the Eastern paper*: 1007—Virginia settled by the English. 1614—New Yoik settled hy the Dutch. 1020- Massachusetts settled hy the Puritans. 1024 —Now Jersey settled hy the Dutch. 1028—Delaware settled by Swedes and Finns.

A Btkanok Life—A correspondent of the Abing don Virginian, writing from Morion, Bmythe county, relates a singular cose of marriage. " We have within half a mile of this place an indi vidual who has remained in one position (flat on his hack) for sixteen years or more. His joints are as dill as though he never bad any ; he can move ills licad slightly ; can move his hands a little ; is unable to eat a single mouthful unless put Into his mouth by another person; la fat, very hearty and cheerful, and within the last two years hits married a good looking and hearty girl, and is raising a family of children.— The clergyman who married this man said he had some scruple* about it, until ho had a long conversa tion with both the parties. He saw they were 1-enton being married. The young lady stood by tbo lied of the groom, (she could not take his hand, for ho could not reach it out,) and they were made one.” The Wugon Hood. It is a matter for congratulation tliat the Wagon Road Bill had passed both Houses of Congress. There can hardly be a doubt but that it has received the approval of the Presi dent It will be seen that $300,000 is appro priated for the construction of a road from Fort Kearney to the eastern boundary of the State; $200,000 for a road from El Paso to Fort Yu ma ; and $50,000 for a road from Fort De fiance to the Colorado. The following is a copy of the bill: AN ACT for the construction of a Wagon Road from Fort Kearney, via the South Pass of the Rocky Mountains anil (Peat Salt Lake Valley, to the ea«t cm portion of the btoto of California, uml for other purposes. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Represen tatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the sum of three hundred thousand dollars, or us much thereof as may be necessary, Is*, and the same is hereby appropriated, out of any mo ney not otherwise appropriated, for the construction of a Wagon Road from Fort Kearney, in the Territory of Nebraska, via the South Pass of the Rocky Mountains to the eastern boundary of the State of California, near Honey Lake, to be expended under the direction of the Secretary of the Interior, pursuant to contracts to be made by him ; said road to connect with and form an extension of the said road already authorized from Fort Ridgely to the aforesaid South Puss.

Passed the House of Representatives, February 9th, 1H57. Attest: WM. CULLOM, Clerk House of Representatives. Mukdek and Suicide. —A horrible tragedy occurred at Secret Diggings, Placer county, a few days ago. Joseph Lester, an English man, shot his wife, killing her instantly, ayd then committed suicide by shooting himself through the head. They leave a little girl seven years of age, daughter of Mrs. Luster by a former marriage. Mr. and Mrs. Lester were married in Sacramento about two months ago, and hud'only resided at Secret Diggings about one month. Mrs. L. was addicted to drink, ■ and to this fault i;, ascribed the husband’s tci tibio crime. K»|m tllllon to l*l(t Itlwr— limlliuih. In a previous issue, says the Shasta 7iej>ub- Ham, we stated that an expedition had been organized nt Smith’s Ranch, on the road to Honey Lake Valley, and had started to Pitt River Valley for the purpose of discovering if ! possible, some due or trace of those who wore ; lately massacred at that place. The expedi tion was under the command of S. Lockhart, a brother of oncrof those who were killed. The company was composed of eighteen persons. The snow was deep upon the mountains, and many difficulties were encountered. The com pany, however, succeeded in reaching the crossing at Pitt River, where Mr. Lockhart had resided. The house had been burned to the ground. It appeared that the massacre had taken place in the daytime. Between tho house and field a wagon loaded with hay had been burned, and the oxen employed in draw ing it had been slaughtered while the yokes were upon their neck. No traces were found of the remains of the unfortunate pioneers. The company captured a boy, about eigh teen years of age, and information was derived from him which led Mr. Lockhart to hope that his brother was yet alive. The boy stated that all had been killed except him, and that he was some distance up the river in the keep ing of a tribe of Indians. The party being short of provisions, were compelled to abandon their investigations, and return to the settlement from which they started. | Mr. Lockhart was in this [dace on Tuesday ; last, and on Wednesday left for Yreka—intend ing to raise a company there to search for his I brother. While in this place Mr. L. informed one of our citizens, that before leaving Pitt River on his late expedition, he mixed a considerable quantity of strychnine with (lour, and placed ! it where it would he found and consumed by ; the starving Indians. He also stated, with ap parent gusto, his poisoning achievements du ring last summer while living with his brother !in Pitt River Valley. According to his own ' story, a number of the Indians of that section | of the country were treacherously poisoned by I him. Since hearing of the above conduct we have lost our wonder at the untimely fate of the settlers of Pitt River Valley. Wo have never heard of but one parallel to the above. Some years since in Siskiyou county, a considerable number of Indians were invited to treat with the whites. Suspecting | no treachery, they assembled for that purpose, I and while sentiments of kindness were being | interchanged between tho parties, they were 1 feasted to death upon poisoned meat and bread. | Whites who betray a confidence in them, in ! this manner, degrade themselves far, very far, i beneath the low level of the untutored and i miserable Digger. There arc no words in our | language fit for the adequate description of 1 such horrible treachery. ! Captain Judah will spend the coming cam- I paign in the Pitt River country. We know i him well enough to be fully assured that he will jiot allow any of these gentry who ply the poisoning trade, to disgrace his camp or make war upon Indians that they have so basely be trayed. The Buroei.l Murder in New York. —The New York Herald , in speaking of the murder of Dr. Rurdcll, and tho holding over for trial of Mrs. Cunningham, Eckel and Snodgrass,- says: “ Without entering into the question ns to the guilt or innocence of the parties accused, a very valuable moral is to be deduced from tho revelations in regard to a certain class of New York Society, which have been given by this investigation. We have had a house unroofed before our eyes. We have seen a woman and her daughters absolutely becoming brigands of society. The mother was at the same time the mistress of two men—each of whom had another mistress—all the women occupying scmi-rcspcctablc positions—half way between* heaven and earth. The resident mistress visits in the Fifth Avenue—gives a trivet dantants without a cent in her pocket—is a strict mem ber of the church, and has a clergyman’s son as a cavalier terviente to her daughters, in or der to give an odor of sanctity to her establish ment. These parties visit each others sleeping apartments—live on tho Mormon principle generally, and have a “ nice time” of it, until one fine morning the person who finds tho funds to carry on the revelry, is found with his carotid artery severed, and three wounds piercing his heart. A direct personal benefit is to accrue to the parties who have been shcl j tered in his house, and the public voice accuses them of “ the deep damnation of his taking off.” St ABE i NO. — A little affair came off at Ilorso town, Shasta county, a few days ago, says tho Shasta Courier , between two friends, who had been imbibing a little too freely of lager beer.

Terrible Accident. —On tho 24th inst., at West Point, says the Calaveras Chronicle , a Mexican named Joaquin Coinpana, was instant ly killed by the machinery of a quartz mill.— The circumstances, as near as wo can learn, are these : Two men were working in a quartz mill, when a shoe of one of tho stamps broke, and it became necessary to stop the mill to fix it. They placed a stick of wood through tho stamp above the cam, so as to hold it up. One man then went to shut oil’ the water, while the other remained in close proximity to tho stamp. The piece is supposed to have broken and struck Joaquin so as to knock his head under the stamp, which fell at the same time, and crushed his head to atoms. The wheel made Several revolutions before the other man could stop it, the stamp falling every time upon tho head and shoulders of Joaquin.
