Wei.- 1 ler at the head of our paper for Governor, and we truly believe that he will be elected to the Governorship of this State by a larger majority than was ever given to any of his predecessors. That he is deserving of the highest official gift within the power of his party to confer, the record of his past political services fully proves. His blunders as a politician have boon few, in comparison with other eminent Statesmen, while his firm adherence to Democratic princi ples stamp him as n candidate for Gubernatorial honors, well worlSi}' of the confidence and sup port of every friend of the laws, the Union and its government. Whether we view him in the forum, or on the tented field before the heights of Monterey, he is still John B. • Welle r—firm, true, consistent and patriotic. XWhile other men of note and distinction have changed in their creed, or modified their political doc trines to suit times or occasions, he has been unyielding—uncompromising in his devotion to Democratic principles of Government. perhaps, not so sarcastically brilliant and ready as a Douglass, nor so rashly impetuous as a Soule, yet he is sensibly solid, and practically learned in all the routine < f Governmental af fairs, and is known to be a warm and unfalter ing supporter of the present Administration at Washington, Courteously dignified in all the social relations of civil life—a dweller and abl der amongst us, having interests identical with our own—he will in the future, as he. has in the past, prove a useful citizen, and one, too, who is thoroughly posted in all our wants, having ability sufficient to make them known and understood. We are apt to expect too much of our public men, but wc venture to say, that our present nominee for Governor, while in the Senate of the United Slates, dis-. played surprising energy in forcing on the at tention of Congress, the just demands of Cali fornia against the United States. /Mr. Weller has grown gray iu the service of his country. No truthful charge can he brought against him of political trickery or official delinquency.— What Mr. Buchanan is to the whole Union he will bo to the State of California, lie will cx ert himself for the good of all. Knowing no 1 factions, and acknowledging the claims of no cliques, he will make private patronage sub servient to the public welfare. lie is the unan-; imous choice of the Democratic parly of this State, because a record of his past political career gives assurance that he will administer the State Government in strict conformity with principles of government that have always prevailed in Democratic Administrations. Stanley, his opponent for the same offiw, is a fluent speaker and an apt debater; hut he is sadly wanting in all the attributes of a great Statesman. With him ambition rules the hour, and he is willing to merge his whiggery in the black sea of Republicanism, if he can but float •n its surface, and guide the ship of State on its troubled waters. Politically be is a second John C. Fremont, cast in a smaller mould, composed of less aspiring ingredients. In the last contest for the Presidency, the Black Re publicans tried to rally under the banner of a Southern man and were defeated. Now, they attempt the same mana?uvro and will bo just as assuredly disappointed. Let a Southerner vow and protest as much as he pleases, that he j believes in every plank in the Black Republi can platform, he never can receive (he full and absolute confidence of the abolitionists. They will surmise, delay, and suspect, until the day of destiny arrives, when he is deserted and, made to stand aside while another victim of their hypocrisy is sought after in the ranks of: the ambitious, the vain and the foolish. ATTIC\’TIOIV DEMOCRATS ! We arc requested to call the attention of the members of the Democratic party In the va rious Precincts, that Saturday next, the 25th day of July, is the day recommended by the Mariposa County Democratic Central Commit tee, to hold primary meetings for electing Del egates to attend the County Convention, to be held at the Town of Mariposa on the Ist day of August next The Mariposa Democratic Club will meet after the adjournment of the Primary Meeting, in Mariposa, Saturday evening. The Democracy of this District arc request ed to meet at the Pacific Saloon, Hornitos, on Saturday, the 25th clay of July, at 4 o’clock, P. M., for the purpose of electing Delegates to die County Convention. Democratic Stott- Nomination*. The Democratic Statu nominations have given unqualified satisfaction to every Demo crat with whom we have conversed in this County, and we believe that such is the case j in every other County in the State. Joseph ! VValkup, of Placer, for Lieutenant Governor; Stephen Field, of Yuba, for Supreme Judge; J. W. Mandeville, of Tuolumne, fur Comptrol ler ; Thomas Findley, of Nevada, Treasurer; 11. A. Higley, of Alameda, for Surveyor General; T. 11. Williams, of El Dorado, for Attorney General, and John O’Meara, of San Francisco, for Public Printer, compose an array of names that are unsurpassed in integrity, ability and Democracy in this or any other State. Mr. Williams has been an old line toig, but he is now a good Democrat and deserves the sup port of every member of our party. As a jurist, Field has no superior on this side of the Union, and he is said to be as honest as lie is capable. With such a ticket, graced with the name of John 11. Weller at its head, we’ll sweep the State with an overwhelming majority for I our nominees. These gentlemen have all re-, commended themselves to our support by the , zeal they have ever manifested in the good old cause of Democracy, and for their fitness for the offices to which they aspire. The Conven i tion that nominated at Sacramento were unan* ! imous in their election, and wc believe that i each and all of them will prove worthy of the] confidence reposed in them by the Convention. I Let ns east aside all prcjudicas that we ma}' entertain of a personal character, and give to the ticket, the whole ticket, our most constant and strenuous support. Tnlnrr Swamp I.uml*. We have received the following letter from a friend at Visalia, and cheerfully insert it in 1 this week’s issue of our paper. We have not had time and opportunity to enquire into the , subject as fully as we should desire, but will, 1 in some subsequent number, give a statement ,of the whole affair as represented to us, and I our views and opinions as regards the law and j the rights of the settlers. If there is any im-, position and extortion being, practised on the settlers, or any underhand work going on to wards the State, it should be made public, and wc shall not fail to expose the whole operation. Visalia, July 12th, 1857. Editor Mariposa Democrat. — Sir: I wish I to have your advice in a matter of great im portance to the Farmers of Tulare, and which is now the engrossing topic. The settlers here have been buying up the Swamp Land under the excellent act of 1856. ; Some have settled on it without buying, defer ring to a more convenient season the outlay of the purchase money. These persons are at their wit’s end to know what lo do. An ad vertisement is posted on our walls offering the land for sale by private persons who claim the land under a Canal Bill passed this year. Insecurity of land titles eurscs Tulare now— an evil from which we have hitherto been ex empt. The land is offered for sale, although wc know it was donated on conditions, but it is unblu.shingly asserted that it is of no import ance whether the conditions arc complied with or not—the Legislature have given the land away and can never get it back. What shall we do? Shall wo buy the land from these 1 persons, or from the State? Indignation at | the whole affair is the prevailing sentiment I Gan laws of this nature bo repealed? L*l us I have your advice. Respectfully, ENQUIRER, OIK SCHOOL. Wo have received a visit from Mr. Tong*-, School Commissioner for this District, find re gret to learn that there is n probability of Hor , nitos being without a school, unless some means arc employed to avert so s;»d a loss. — ' The sum allowable from the School Fund ap portionment Is totally inadequate to pay even the hoard of Mr. liirt, the present teacher, and ,it becomes every parent and friend of educa tion to seriously reflect upon the evils that would ensue in case the school is closed. The I school numbers some seven or eight young 1 hoys and girls, varying in age and size, being from tight to fourteen years old—under the I charge of Mr. liirt, a gentleman w ho really un derstands his profession. A monthly contri* ; billion should be made by the married folks to aid in maintaining the cause of education, and every bachelor that expects to he married should pay a proportionate amount. Every citizen who builds a school-house or expends his means in educating the boys and girls— youthful representatives of Young America— aids the cause of civil and religious liberty, and perpetuates the institutions of freedom to, all mankind. The youthful mind requires to be stimulated and directed by a course of train -1 ing readily understood by experienced teach ers, and which, when regularly applied, en- I genders habits of industry and reflection that | tend greatly to mould the character in after I life. By all means let us make some attempt jto keep open our school. The little boys and : girls have claims upon us that should not be slighted, and the persevering and patient I teacher should not be permitted to suffer cither | in health or purse, while he is anxiously watch ing over the mental progress and the moral I training of the young and tender. What is ! everybody’s business is generally nobody’s business, yet we hope, in this instance at least,. some of our most worthy citizens will give the ; subject all the attention it deserves. T T . S. Mail to Millerton and Visalia. —lt \ affords us much pleasure to hear that Mr. ■ Thomas Heston has obtained the contract for 1 I carrying the U. S. mail from Quartzburg to Millerton and Visalia. Mr. Heston has placed jon this route a splendid Concord coach which 1 runs weekly to these towns. Since the com- • ! nicncement of the enterprize he has been lib erally patronized, for w ith such a turn-out — , such a scientific and accommodating driver ns our friend “ Billy Hice,” he cannot fail to sue ' cccd well. Hereafter Mr. Heston’s stage will 1 ’ leave Hornitos Thursday and Visalia Monday. Chinamen. —The Chinese are wending their way south. A large number recently made j their appearance at the Indian Reservation on j King’*River, on their way to the Kern River mines. There being considerable ground on Korn River that will pay two dollars per day to the hand, the miners there consented to 1 tlx ir w rking the snmc Miuipomt C'nms|Miml<'»i(('. Editor uf tiik Mariposa Democrat. —lt is obvious that the Democratic party are invin cible, when energetic and harmonious. Every member of the parly feels this truth, and knows that no surer or more effectual means for at taining success can be devised than by organ izing thoroughly. Acting upon this belief, the Democracy of this Precinct met at Assembly Hall last Saturday evening and revived their Club of last year. Being an old member I dropped in, attracted by the familiar call of the bell ringer, which last year so animated us to patriotic duty. I cannot and therefore will not attempt to delineate the rush of emotions and sensations the spectacle occasioned, nor the stirring associations and soul-swelling pride with which I recurred to last year’s campaign, its momentous questions and its patriotic vic tory. Nor will I attempt to reproduce the i proud and pleasing reflection that during that ever memorable crisis, T had performed my duty, and contributed my humble share towards rescuing the liberties and institutions of the country from evident peril and mena cing calamity. The occasion naturally sug gested to my mind a retrospect of (he aims which then animated the respective parties.— The one only aspiring for spoils, forgetting the < nation’s security in their blind and avaricious scramble —the second recklessly resolving upon [revolution and national ruin, following a leader who struck at the nation’s life as unscrupu lously as he had previously done at her Trens- 1 ury —and our own time-honored Democratic parly, whose deathless laurels are attested by their fidelity and devotion in the champion ship of the country’s safety and its inestimable institutions. I may be pardoned the electric glow and the complacent reflections I felt at the moment, which whispered me that the vote I cast last Fall for the Democracy and its can didate for President, was the greatest and most patriotic act of my life. The example thus set by the Democracy of, this Precinct, ought to be commended to the party throughout the County. Organization, thorough and complete, is the security of suc cess. Color-bearers should be active, prudent, vigilant, energetic and ever ready to give time and labor to the cause. At this stage of the canvass there is no reason to complain of the signs of the times. Everything looks cheering. But inactive confidence is a most impotent and delusive dependence, often begetting disaster, when a little opportune effort might have wrought a contrary result. We have a leader I in every respect worthy the situation of Oovorn : or. and of the confidence reposed in him by I the Democracy. Let it never he said that the rank and tile hesitated while his clarion voice resounds in advance rallying to the charge,— 1 With the Democracy there should he no such word as fail, and by one harmonious and deter mined effort, we can again plant our victorious banners upon the conquered citadel. A Jackson Loco-Foco. Mariposa, July 20,1857. Tin: M \n.. | One stage leaves Stockton every day, and two every oilier day for Hornilos, and yet we have hut throe mails per week. This Town and its immediate vicinity is rapidly filling up with an industrious and thriving population, . and yet Saturday, Sunday and Monday we are without a mail from any quarter of the State. It is true that the mail from Stockton i arrives on Monday, hut it seldom reaches us until about sunset, which is a great' hardship upon the people of Mariposa County. If there was no stage running every day to this point from Stockton, why then there would be some apology in not extending to us the usual mail facilities, hut ns it would be attended with little additional cost to the Post Office Department, the neglect is almost unpardonable in the Post Office officials. If the Post Office Agent was i not acquainted with our wants in the way of a, regular daily mail, we might expect some change far the better, hut as it is, there is but one alternative —that is to petition the Post, Office Agent at San Francisco, and if this fails, apply by petition to (he scat of Government at. Washington. Will not some enterprising citi i zon circulate a petition and have a remedy ap-, : plied without delay ? milling on Slu-rliM-k « Creek. Extract of ii letter received from Sherlock'* Creek : j SiiiiMLOcK' . Cheek, July 18th, 1857. “ Brooklyn Jack in the field—Mike Talbot: nowhere—Paddy M’Cann outwitted —Marshall j & McLano in the rear—Slow John not so slow —Bloody Nick on the lead —he swore when, he struck the gold, that he could see it run- I ning down the sluices as thick as Hies on a molasses cask. Saturday’s day’s work, July 11th, fifty-eight dollars and fifty cents to four , 1 men ; Monday, July 13th, four ounces and a i half ; Tuesday, ten ounces and two dollars ;, Wednesday, thirty-six dollars; Thursday, one i piece weighing four ounces, and seven dollars in fine gold; Friday, sixty-two dollars, and Saturday, twenty-nine dollars. The lead is very wide and scattered at present, and not more than half water enough to wash the dirt, owing to the breaking of the flumes. Roth tunnels are paying well—the gold coarse and very black, and every prospect of doing better, as the further we go up the hill wo arc draw-1 I ing the lead to a narrower compass, therefore we have every expectation of raking it out by : another week, as the gold can he seen in the ; dirt before washing. “ Messrs.

Before he left Utah the Mormons hud not heard of the Inten tion of the Government to send a force thither, but they frequently laughed at the idea of the Govern ment compelling them to obey the Federal laws, and cited the failure of the Government to put down the disturbance in Kansas as evidence of its inefficiency. He supposes that one third or half of the Mormons, who are disgusted with Brigham Young’s tyranny, would rise against him were they protected by the United States troops.
