WEDNESDAY MORNING MAY 13.
Wagon Road Convention.
Delegates from Han Joaquin, Contra Coata, Santa
Crnz, Alameda and Calaveras Counties, were preseat
&t the Wagon Road Convention held at Mokclumne
Hill on Saturday, the 2d instant. There were alao
delegates from Carson Valley. We regret that our
own County was not represented in a Convention held
for the purpose of discussing matters so important to
all the Southern Counties. Great harmony and good
feeling prevailed among the delegates, and the follow
ing, which we copy from the Calaveras Chronicle, is
in substance the most Important action taken by the
Convention :
Three Directors were appointed to undertake the
construction of a road from the Rig Tree to Canon
Valley, the said Directors to have full power to apply
all the funds raised for the purpose, with the single
restriction that they are not to let out any part of the
work by contract.
The Directors have authority to call a Convention
of the Counties herein interested whenever they think
it necessary. They are required to publish a report of
their operationa-once every month in some newspaper.
A Committee of five was also appointed to raise funds
and pay them over to the Treasurer of the Association.
Judge Bheptrd, Judge Rno, Judge Radgley, Col Lan
ins and Capt Hanford, were appointed a committee to
draft an address to the people of the Southern Coun
ties, urging them to action. It was resolved that th(j
facts elicited in the action of the Convention Ik* re
ported to the Department of the Interior. It was also
resolved that the Post Office Department at Washing
ton he requested not to give out the contract for the
transportation of the mails from Canon Valley to Pla
cerville nntil further information is obtained in refer
ence to the Big Tree route. The Directors were re
quested to begin work immediately. It was finally re
solved that 130,000 l»c the amount authorized by the
Convention to be collected for the construction of the
road. The Directors are Judge David Shepard, of
| Murphy’s ;H. L. Root, Ksq., of Mokelumne Hill; and
G. K. Drew, Ksq., of Stockton.
A Hint to CapltalltitH.
A writer.in the Han Francisco Bulletin in touching up
the extravagance of capitalists. and allowing soma of
the large amount* foolishly squandered away for u*e
lew purposes, ho* suggested a mode hy which capital
ists can make good Investment I *, and largely add to
the wealth of our State. Investment* in water ditehe
are *afc and profitable, paying better dividend* than
any other kind of stocks in California. Hut to the
letter :
“ I continue the subject of the l»est mode of increo*-
ing the population of the State, by a few more queries.
What ha* lieen realised for the capital invested in the
more substantial improvement* «f this city, such a*
costly *tone edifice* and brick building* ? Is.t the
owner* of Montgomery Block and other line edifices
answer. If further evidence i* required, I give the re
i cent case oftJeo. T. Johnson v*. Wm. Sherman, in the
Superior Court. The development* in that case show
that a lot wa* leased in San Francisco for ten years at
1750 per month, on which the lessee* erected a brick
building which C4»*t some $35,000. It ai*o apjiean*
that the lot and building do not now rent for enough
■ to pay the ground rent Htipulab-d in the lease for tlie
lot alone, no that the IM.OUO la a dead lom hi the par y
investing. This is hard to Ik* heat by ditch stock.
“ Hut again : what d<K.*s the million of dollar* inve-t
--ed in a trifling railroad from Sacramento City to Fol
som pay, and what real g<n»d ha* resulted from It?
Teamsters still continue to curry the usual freight
i from the city hy the side of the rail mud, and the stages
| still carry many of the passengers, w hile the fare is the
sume. If this *urn had been invested in water ditches, |
I it would have given facilities for ialsir to thousami*.
book at the million* which have been squandered in
building up streets and levees in Sacramento City?
I Why. it would seem to a traveler that the people of
! Sacramento went Into that swamp, raised th'»*»* street*,
and built that levee for the express purpose of almtract
ing that amount of capital, and hindering it from
being invested in that portion of the State where it
j would be of some utility to the laboring community—
j for as you go down the stream, immediately on leaving
' the city you approach a high land extending to the
] very margin of the river, which nature teems to have
I taken e*|H-cial pain* to elevate above the high water,
{ precisely where the city *hould have been, and a more
lieautiful *ite for a city eye hath not *ecn. But they
went down into a swamp, and right by the side of it
built a wharf and levee, and raised their streets at an
expense of million* ; and are still in Jeopardy of their
lives every flood. Now what doc* all that investment
pay?
“ It appear* that altout four millions of capital ha*
been invested in State Bonds, much of which ha* l*en
fraudulently put in circulation by corrupt officials.—
The Courts have condemned all thia debt a* unconsti
tutional and worthless, and an injunction i* now
brought to prevent payment of the interest. Ho, what
will it be likely to pay ? If that 14,000,000 hud been
Judiciously invested In the mineral portion of the
j State, in the construction of water ditches, it would
have supplied almost every mining section with per
manent water and aleady employment, not only to
those who are hero, but to hundreds of thousands of
others who would have come here, if these facilities
for developing the resources of the country hud been
furnished.
“lam now able reasonably to assert again, that the
capital which ha*, or which may be hereafter invested
I in water ditches, ha* paid, and will continue to pay,
better dividends for centuries to come, than any other
stocks in the State.”
From the Mouth.
The Indian*, say* the Sun Diego Herald, will rai*e
nothing at all this year—the Indian agent will do
nothing for them- and the result will he, they must
steal cuttle! The commanding officer of the Pacific
Division, has seen fit to order off all the military force
here and at the Tejon, and the responsibility of any
outrages which the Indians may commit on the people
of this region, must full on him or f»en. Wool, who it is
slated, made this order before Col. Fanntleroy assumed
the command, but did not like to tike the responsibili
ty of issuing it, well knowing it* ruinous effect* on the
interest* of the South.
From reliable authority we learn that the Cohuilla
trils? numbers between 15 and 17,000 souls—all in this
county—and the Han Luis Hey, Dieguinos, San Vsabel
and other Indians, number from 1,000 to 3,000 each,
ho that it is safe to set down the total at ‘20,000. With
this number of hostile savages in our very midst, a* it
w'ere, our situation, if not perilous, is, to say the least,
anything but agreeable.
The same paper complains of the drought, and says
the grass is parched up, and that the cattle are being
drove off to other sections.
The Santa Barbara tiazetle says, by a lute arrival
from Port Tejon, “ wc learn that the earthquakes are
yet in active operation in that section of the coun
try. The earth seems to be in an almost incessant
state of agitation, and the resident* are living In con
stant alarm.”
Chinese Immigrants —As a poor equivalent
for the eight hundred valuable citizens taken
away on the Golden Gate yesterday, says the
Alta Californian , the clipper ship Kate Hoop
or set down on our wharves over four hundred
natives of the Flowery land, with their bamboo
furniture and flowing costume. Throughout
the afternoon, drays, carts and wagons might
have been seen hurrying through the streets
towards that part of the town where China- j
men “ most do congregate,” or dumping before ;
the rookeries of Dupont and Sacramento streets
their unique looking “ plunder." This evil, so
long endured, is in a fair way of being cured, if
John Bull and Brother Jonathan conclude to
stretch a cordon around the dominions of Con- 1
fucius.
Later from Chinn—Progress of the War.
The ship Kate Hooper arrived at San Francis
co on Tuesday, 6th Inst, bringing dates from*
Hong Kong, to March 16th. A letter from
the neighborhood of Canton to the China Mail)
gives the following intelligence:
There has been nothing of importance done
in the river since the 15th of February. Oc
casional attacks are made on the Macoa Fort
by row boats from the Canton quarter, and by
rockets and gingalls from the shore on both
sides, but they have not as yet succeeded in
injuring any person rocket making, since the
disturbances in the river commenced. The
junks arc still in some force in the Fatshan
river, but there arc not so many as there wore
some time back. A reconnoitering expedition
went up the other day (28th February) as far
as Hyacinth Island, consisting of the Encoun
ter, Hongkong, Coromandel, Sir Charles
Forbes, and the boats of-the squadron, except
the Hornet's, which vessel was cruising in the
neighborhood of Escape Creek. Nothing was
done on this occasion, though the junks kept
up a distant tire at them for three or four
hours. A fleet of about one hundred junks is
still some distance up Escape Creek, but since
the affair with the Hornet on the 10th of Feb.,
they have been rather shy ; the Hornet has
frequently anchored at the entrance to Escape
Creek, but they have shown no disposition to
come down. They, however, had a slap at
the Auckland on the 28th of February, when
she brought up the mail from Hongkong, but
did her no damage. As soon as they saw the
Hornet coming out of Blenheim Reach, they
made sail in retreat. Whampoa was visited
the other day by the Commander-in-Chief,
and all appeared quiet. It was reported that
a large number of row’ boats were lying there,
hut not a single one was seen.
Seizure or a British Steamer and Messa
-47K8 or her Crew’ by the Chinese.— The British
steamer Queen, when on her passage from
Hongkong to Macoa, was seized by her Chi
nese passengers and Chinese crew. She was
officered by Portuguese, and had on board
some European passengers. When they were
at Tiffin, the native crew and passengers, thir
ty-five in number, turned the boat’s cannon
in the gangway, into the cabin door, and fired
its contents (grape shot) among the officers and
European passengers in the cabin. Two engi
neers were instantly killed. The captain leap
ed overboaid; his fate is unknown. Others
were killed, or escaped by jumping into the
water. The female passengers and children,
and the Chinese passengers, who bad not min
gled in the affray, were carried safely to Macoa,
and liberated. The Queen was afterwards set
on fire and destroyed by the Mandarins at
Chun Chunc. She had $50,000 worth of
opium on board, which was all lost.
The American whale ship Alice Mandcll
was lost in the Japan Sea, on the 7th March.
The Alice Mandell had only 400 barrels of oil
on board, having shipped about 1,000 barrels
from the Sandwich Islands and New Zealand,
previous to putting in at Hongkong.
The Emperor is said to have issued a decree
directing the high authorities of the coast pro
vinces to be on the alert, but not to alarm the
people; and expressing confidence in Teh's
knowledge of the barbarians, and his conse
quent capacity to settle this affair with the
British.
Strike among the Workmen.— The State
Journal says:
The assistance of the police was required at
the brick yard of Mr. Shobe, corner of Oth and
T streets, yesterday afternoon, in order fo
quell a disturbance which had arisen among
the workmen. It appears that the bricklayers
arc yet on a strike for higher wages, the offer
being S4O and they demand SSO per month.
Some of the workmen had engaged at the of
fered rale and commenced work at Shobc’s
yard. The others were determined this should
not proceed, and made a descent upon the un
derworked They came down fifty strong,
and run everybody away from the premises.
Those who would not leave of their own ac
cord were carried out by the beseigers, and a
tremendous hubbub resulted. Shobe received
a severe blow from a man named Martin Dunn,
and the assailant was afterwards arrested by
officers Newton and Hardy, who visited the
scene of action. As the officers reached the
ground, the belligerent party scattered all over
the plains, running and howling like so many
Indians. The quarrel is creating much sport.
More Rascality. —The Sacramento Bee of
the Oth inst, says an old man—a Dutchman,
apparently—went to the station-house this
morning, and informed the officers that last
night, while in a state of intoxication, conse
quent upon too frequent potations of lager beer,
he went into a beer saloon on K street, and
that while there a woman (who passes for the
wife of the saloon keeper) had enticed him to
go to her room, and that after having divested
himself of his shoes at her request, the door of
the room was burst in and the soi disant hus
band entered, accompanied by two other men,
who three together beset him fiercely and beat
him with their fists, whcrcuron he besought
them for mercy, which they bestowed upon
him after fore ? ng him to sign a note for SIOOO,
they knowing him to be worth a goodly for
tune. _
A Rascal. —Some years since a noted war
rior of the Pottowattamie tribe presented him
self to the Indian agent at Chicago, as one of
the chiefs of his village, observing with the
customary simplicity of the Indians, that he
was a very good man, and good American, and
concluding with a request for a dram of whis
ky. The agent replied that it was not his prac
tice to give whisky to good men—that good
men never ask for whisky, nor drink it when
voluntarily offered; that it was bad Indians
only who demanded whisky. “ Then,” replied
the Indian quickly, in broken English, “me
d—m rascal.”
Meteor. —The Marysville Herald says a
meteor of most singular and beautiful charac
ter was witnessed by a large number of our
citizens on Monday night at about 8 o’clock.
Ills general appearance was that of a large
sized rocket, shooting or rather floating, upon
a horizontal line from w est to east. It was in
| sight for about five minutes and attracted al
most universal attention.
Man, Woman and Child Drowned.—'Hie
Shasta Courier states that on Thursday, April
28U, two Portuguese men attempted to cross
the river at Gullion’s Bar, in a canoe contain
ing Mrs. Pulsford and her child. Getting about
lialf way across the river, one of the Portuguese
became frightened, jumped out of the canoe,
and swam to the shore. The other Portuguese,
finding himself alone in the management of the
boat, and the river being high and running
swift, he also attempted to jump out. Mrs.
Pulsford took hold of him for the purpose of
keeping him in the canoe, and in the scramble
the canoe was capsized, and the man, woman
and child drowned. Mr. Pulsford was stand
ing upon the bank of the river, and saw the
whole affair, but was unable to render his un
fortunate wife any assistance.
From rim Upper Missouri. —The St. Louis
Democrat has been furnished by Major A. J.
Vaughan, who has just returned to that city
from the Upper Missouri country, with the fol
lowing information. Major Vaughan is the
agent for the Indian tribes that dwell upon the
head waters of the Missouri: He left Fort
Pierre on the 19th of January, and reports
profound peace throughout the Indian territo
ries. The snow had been very heavy, ami a
great part of his journey down was made on
foot. The buffalo were congregating in im
mense herds at Fort Pierre, and from thence
to the foot of the mountains. Indeed, they
surpassed in quantity any previous year, and
it is thought that more robes will be sent down
this year than ever before. The Indians were
all out on their winter hunts, and had been
very successful in consequence of the abun
dance of game. The price of robes, in all pro
bability, will go down in consequence.
An Amalgamator —The State Journal says
that Mr. Thomas Ilansbrow has invented n
new machine for the purpose of amalgamating
gold in quartz. It is constructed somewhat
like a chest of draw’ers, the upper apartment
“ pitching” to one end of the and the
second to the other end, and so on to the fifth
apartment, where the crushed quartz passes
out, the bottoms of each pitching in one direc
tion or the other. The top and bottom apart
ments are well supplied with quicksilver, and
are kept in motion by machinery. Ail the
apartments contain quicksilver, and are pro
vided with rillles of an improved character.—
The machine was built for the Excelsior Mills
In Placer county.
Exhumed. —The Chinese of Jackson, says the
Sentinel , were busily engaged on the 80th uit.
in exhuming the remains of some of their
friends, who had been interred for more titan
two years, in their burying ground near town,
on the north fork of Jackson creek, preparato
ry to shipping them to their native country.—
In gathering up the bones of one body, one
tooth and one of the bones of the fingers were
missing. Diligent search was made to recover
the lost treasure, but to no effect. One of them
remarked that it must be found, in order to
render the removal of the spirit complete to its
parent earth, China; that if a part of the bones
were left here, and the other sent home, there
would naturally be a division, as it is impossi
ble for the entire spirit to leave any portion of
tiie remains.
Fkom Carson Vallot.— From the Union
we learn that Mr. Thompson, the expressman,
arrived in Sacramento on the 3d inst He left
the valley on the 29th uit, and came by the
Dig Tree route. The average of snow remain
ing was about three feet. There was little news
in the valley. A prospecting party of five or
six had left for Walker river. The party of
packers reported on this side of the mountains
by Uncle Billy Rodgers, had arrived at the
Mormon station. They did not, however, suc
ceed in getting over all their mules and packs.
Cuors in the South. —Quite a change has
latterly taken place in the weather in Santa
Crux county. It is warm, and that with the
dry north winds, absorbs tiie moisture from
the earth. The Pacific Sentinel says that the
fields of grain arc heading out prematurely,
the stalks turning yellow at the root, indicating
a want of moisture and the decay of the plant.
Rain would not help the grain fields of this
description. It is needed for the later sowings.

3d uit., at Jamison’s Mill, in Amador county, a
child one a half years old was left in the house
while the parents went out to milk. The

child’s clothing in flames, and the child itself
so badly burned as to be beyond recovery.—
The name of the parents is Fitzgerald.
Poor John. —A few days since, a sick Chi
nahian was found lying in an open lot, back of
the Metropolitan Theatre, San Francisco. He

one to wait upon and look after him. He was
quite sick, anth from all appearances had been
carried there by some inhuman w'retches, no
doubt some of his countrymen, and left to get
along the best way he could. He was taken
l to the station house and provided for.
Important Decision. —The Suj reme Court
on the 4th inst. decided the famous suit of
Doane vs. Scanned, involving the title to the
