W.M. GODFREY. THE LEGISLATURE OX KANSAS. The principal topic of discussion, in politi cal circles throughout the State, since our last issue, has been the resolutions adopted by the popular branch of the Legislature, instructing our Senators, and requesting our Represent atives in Congress, to vote for the immediate “admission of Kansas into the Union, on an equal footing With the original Stales, in all re spects whatever.” These resolutions were adopted by a vote of 41) to 18, after a very able and lengthy discussion by their friends and opponents, all of whom won undying fame in their oratorical efforts for and against their passage. The resolutions were also being discussed in the Senate on the 12th, hut the final action of that body upon them, has not yet reached us, and wo can therefore only surmise as to the ultimate disposition of them in the Legislature. During the discussion in the Senate, the Chamber was densely crowd ed, and the speakers were listened to with the most earnest attention. It is natural, now that action has been taken by a poition of our Legislature on the Kansas question, lor every Californian to endeavor, by a glance at the future, to examine intuits prob able effects upon the interest of our growing Slate—for that it will have a marked influence upon us hereafter, particularly if the Senate concur with the Assembly, none versed in the affairs of the country will deny. The one great want of this State, ns ac knowledged by all, is a speedy transit by railroad, over the vast extent of country now separating us from other Slates of the Union. The beginning of this connection with t e East is anxiously looked for by every inhabit ant of California who looks upon this State as his future home. The bill for the construc tion of this great national work, which is to be of such vast benefit to California, is now before the Senate of the United States, and Is being urged forward with vigor by its author, Hon. Win. M. Gwin, our S« nut or, ably assisted by bis coadjutors in this, one of the greatest — to the United Slali-s the greatest—work of the age, with the Administration strongly in its fa vor; and consequently, with all these influen ces to assist it, the Pacific H ulroad bill m«y be said to bo in a fair way of being favorably passed upon at the present session of Con gress. Taking these facts and this subject alone in to consideration, not to mention the various ways by which other great interests of Califor nia might have been afT-cted by the decision of its Legislature, or a portion of it, on the Kansas question, we certainly think that it is better for this State that the Administration has been supported in its efforts to hasten the admission of Kansas into tin- Union, though, upon principle, we cannot but condemn the step. We are not blind to, and we will ever res pect, those inalienable rights which every American holds so dear, one of which we be lieve to he, the right of every freeman in our land to vole directly for or against the Stale Constitution by which he is to bo governed, if such Constitution is being passed upon while he is a resident of that Slate. Hut in Kansas this has not been done, and the vote of the majority, rejecting the Constitution, has been disregarded on legal grounds. This stale of things ifi Kansas has been brought about, in fact, by the Convention which trained the Le compton Constitution,'who, ns (ho represent atives of a portion of tin* people of the Terri tory, and in order to carry out certain views towards another party in tho Territory, to which tin y were opposed, usurped tho power to dictate to the people of the whole State, and so framed the Constitution that, in a legal point of view, the administration could pursue no other course than that followed by them ; but greater emergencies have been met by former administrations, and we are of opinion that the K snsas question might also have been nettled with a far greater regard for the princi ple of popular sovereignty. Viewing howev er, the speedy admission of Kansas as a cer tainty, and that room will thereby ho given for the forwarding of matters of much more direct interest to this Slate, we think conces sions of opinion are called for, and are com pelled to say, that notwithstanding our oppo sition to the measure on principle, we will con cede that the action of the Assembly i.i proba bly the best for this State, that could have been had by them on the subject. Tub Akea of Utah. —It may ho matter of interest to many of our readers to know some thing of the comparative extent of that Terri tory of the United Slates whose chief officer is bidding defiance to our Government. Ac cording to Colton, the area of Utah is 209,170 square mites. To engineers and a few others, this will give a just idea of its vast extent, but the majority of people will form a better esti mate by being told that It is as largo a« the whole of the New England Stales, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Mary land, Kentucky and Tennessee. Or to com pare it with European countries, it is equal in extent to Great Britain and Ireland, Switzer land. Prussia and Denmark, with tho Inlands of Guernsey, Jersey and Man, and the lonian islands added. Mining Items—from Our Traveling Conti* pomlrnt* Me. Editor: —Knowing the interest taken by you in the mining operations in our coun ty, I transmit yon a few dotting!) made during a trip through some of the diggings* The first of importance, on my route, wore in the A gut Frio District. From the upper gulches of the Agna Frio, to Lower Agua Frio, minors are principally idle for the want of water, though some arc making fair wages with toms and rockers. This mining locality is very exten sive, and with a continued supply of water, would furnish good diggings for large nuin hers of miners. Carson’s creek has but a small supply of water, yet a few’ miners who were nt Work saiil they made reasonable wages—os much as five dollars a day. At Bridgeport, very few American miners me at work. The John Chinamen, however, seem to think that the chances arc fine, ns is evidenced by the large number at work in the creek, and a considerable addition, it is expect ed, will be made to the number during the summer. The appearance of Mariposa town was ns lively as could be expected in such general dull times. The business houses were sending out goods on pack animals to the mining lo calities convenient to Mariposa. Improve ments continue to be made in buildings and in beautifying the grounds of private residences with fruit trees, shrubbery, etc. Several fields of grain adjacent to the town look much bet ter than some in other portions of the county. On Miripona Creek, from its head to Mor men liar, and below that pi ce, quite a num ber of companies are at work, and in funny cases are making remunerative wage*. The supply of water in the creek is not very large, and there is but a slim prospect for an in* crease this season. Sherlock’s Creek presents the same appear mice—as regards business—as other mining localities, though once, and is probably yet, one of the richest in the county. The miners hero have still that same open-handed way of doing things that characterized them in more prosperous times, and are as freehearted as ever. All are at work, though some few only have lately made “strikes.” McErlane & Co. have diggings that pay half an ounce a day to (lie hand. Fag.n & Co. took out, on Thurs day Inst, over eleven ounces—one piece weigh ing eight ounces. Their claim is considered to pay an ounce a day. Whitlock’s Crock w ill pay five dollars a day to the hand, but the scarcity of water at pres ent prevents that locality f-oin being properly worked. Goodman, Dihz A Co.’s quartz mill, at the mouth of this Creek, has a small supply of water, by which they run their mi I and two arastrns. A week ago, this firm fully test ed the superiority of amslras over the or dinary mill process for saving gold : on crush ing fourteen tons of qtlnrurln the mill, its av erage yield was s3<) per ton. Six tons of the same quality of rock crushed in two arastras, at the same time, yielded $lO per ton.’ This company will shortly erect a now mill, to bo run by either steam or water power. Fritz, Snyder & Co.’s new steam qi’irlz mill, at the hood of Whitlock's Creek, in in successful op eration, running eight stamps, and crushes seven and eight loos per day, yielding—as I was informed by Mr. 11. Sleigman, the agent of the company—s3o per ton. They have two arastras, neatly completed, which will be put in operation shortly. At Whisky Flat, the miners generally meet with success in their endeavors. Mining mi this place is very heavy work, owing to the many large boulders that have to be moved, and in consequence, accidents not unfiequent ly occur. Recently, Mr. Geo. Bernhardt, was severely injured by a rook falling on his foot and ankle. Hunt A Co., have a rich tunnel claim at this place, running into the bunk upon which is the store of Mr. J. 11. Davis, lately owned by the Williams Bros. Mr. Davis will no doubt meet with the sue cess of which he is deserving, as miners in that locality will always he able to make mo ney to pay provision bills, having a supply of water all (be season. From Whisky Flat, down Sherlock’s Creek, to the Mouth, at Brown A EggenliolPs store, there are very few miners at work, as yet, as it is supposed (he Spring rains will so raise (be Creek us to destroy whatever preparation: they may now’ make. They will commence operations on the opening "f summer. From the Mouth of Sherlock’s down the Merced river, to Bond’s store, mining is now being carried on in various ways. John Chi naman, with uncouth mien and silly grin, may be seen “bobbin’ round” in numbers along the river, endeavoring to make their daily rice. Several water-wheels h ive recently been pul in motion, raising the water a distance of fourteen to twenty feet, giving sluice streams to the companies working ilia low bars a short distance above Bond’s store. In crossing the divide between Bond’s store and Bear Valley, a distant view of the Yo semite Valley may bo obtained, the snowy and cheerless appearance of which, on Sunday morning last, was anything but inviting as a pleasant resort for sight seers—a great con trast indeed, to its beautiful appearance in the Summer. Descending the divide towards B ar Valley, the celebrated 41 Pine Tree*” and “ Josephine” quartz mines are seen, with a number of tun nels used for working them, also the shafts sunk down (o find (lie rich portions of tbu leads. They are being worked both by the Merced Mining Company and the Fremont men, yielding the richest quartz yet discovered m California. Yours, etc., _ COMMODORE. Changing the Route.— F. P. Blair, Jr., ol Missouri, has introduced a bill in the House ol Representatives, to break up the Overland Mail contract, unless the route shall be chang ed from the extreme South, to the great cen tral emigrant trail, OIVRN up.—Lieut. Ives lias given up his ex ploration of the Colorado. He is directed to determine the head of navigation, with a view of building a fort there, to be used against the Mormons. To Applicants for Bounty Land. —We have been kindly furnished by our Represen tative in Congress, J. C. MeKibbcn, with a book of “ Instructions and Forms to be ob served by persons applying to the Pension Of fice for Bounty Land under the Act of March 3d, 1860, entitled .‘an Act in addition to cer tain Acts granting Bounty Land to certain of fleers and soldiers who have been engaged in the military service of the United States ;’ and the Act of May 14, 1850, in amendment there of.” Under the above Acts, all persons who have served in any capacity in the army—in any of the wars—over fourteen days, or the widow or minor child or children of such per son, is entitled to a certificate or warrant for one hundred and sixty acres of land, which can ho obtained on application to the Com missioner of Pensions, at Washington City. The book contains all the forms necessary to he used by persons applying for bounty land awarded under the above-mentioned Acts, and will be at the service of those wishing to refer to them, ut our office. Wo would he happy, also to transmit, free of charge, n written copy of any of the forms to any person wishing it. Sad Accident.—On last Saturday night, 18th iiist., a sad accident occurred at San Juan, Monterey county. We are informed by agon Reman direct from that place, that at about 2 o’clock at night, a fire occurred in the dwelling house occupied by B. W. Odom, and shocking to relate, before any assistance could be ren dered, the whole family, consisting of Mia. Odom and four children, and a at bool mistress named Miss Bui ns, were burned to death. Mr. Odom, who is the brother-in-law of Mr. Frank Koss, of this county, was absent at the time the calamity occurred, and only returned in time to see the charred remains of all he held most dear on earth. Texas papers will confer a favor by publish ing this notice, lor the Information of the fl lends of the family in that State. Tub Weather. — At Ilornitoa, for the pant week, the weather has been extremely disa greeable, the wind at times blowing almost a gale. In fact, it seemed as if Sol and Boreas had agreed to rehearse at our expense, the fa ble in which .Ks-.p says they tried their res pective powers on the traveler in time past. A few very slight showers have fallen—not sufficient, scarcely, to lay the dust. Snow and hail passed over the mountains east of the Bear Valley range, and near Bondville, on Sat in day night and Sunday last, and the sum mits of all the higher range of mountains were covered with snow. Sunday, the 21st, is the vernal equinox, and shortly after we may ex pect this blustering, disagreeable weather to subside, and if we are to have any rain this Spring, it may be expected about that lime. Substitute for a Ditc h foh Miners. —Ac. cording to the late report of C. I>. tiihhes, Esq., to the California Society of Natural His tory, and published in the San Joaquin Re publican, the quantity of water discharged by tln- artesian well ut Stockton, is tiv« hundred thousand gallons in twenty four hours. Two sueh would bo a good substitute for a ditch, and anywheie in this neighborhood would he an exhaustions source of wealth to the owners. The San Francisco Minstrels. — 1 o-morrow evening, this well-known troupe will give one of th-ir pleasing entertainments at the Horni t.,K Hotel. This is the most talented compa ny of Minstrels in I'alifornia. Wo have wit nessed their performances elsewhere, and .can vouch for their ability to give entire satisfac tion, If you wish to pass a pleasant evening, go and sue them. Repeal.—ln the Assembly last week, Mr. Stakes gave notice of a bill to repeal the act making a heavy grant of swamp lands to Cer tain parties who contracted to cut a canal from Tulare Lake to the San Joaquin river. If is cl arged that the company have no intention of fulfilling their part of the contract in good faith. Thanks —To 1. N. Ward and A. H. Mitchell, of the Assembly ; Win. I. Ferguson, of the Senate, and J. C. McKibhen, Representative from California in Congress, for favors extend ed to this office. Disappointed Mormons Leaving Utah.— Bya private letter, says the San Francisco //or aid, from E. D. Knight, Esq., now at San B iiiaidino, we have the foil uring intelligence: The mail carrier between Salt Lake City and California, i.tated that Brigham Young had furnished pass; arts to eight hundred and forty disap oinled Mormons—men, women and chil dren—who had availed themselves of the op portunity, and set out from Salt Lake City for t California. The messenger passed them about four hundred miles from San Bernardino, and they were hurrying through as fast as possible. Flour for San Francisco. —The company who own the mill situated about half a mile from Sonora, on the Jamestown road, are about sending a large quantity of flour to San Fran cisco. This, says the Sonora Herald , is re vet.sing the order of things. Heretofore we looked to San Francisco for our supplies; now we can afford to send her some from our abun dance. What effect this will have on the spec ulation wc cannot say. Tub Yield of Silver in Mexico.— The re port of Lieut. Mowry exhibits the yield of the silver mines of Mexico from the actual official returns to the government, from the conquest to 1803, at the enormous sum of $2,027,056,- 000. Secession. —The Charleston Mercury do clares that “Georgia, Alabama and Mississip pi stand pledged to secede from the Union, should Kansas, applying to Congress for ad mission as u slave Slate, be refused admis sion.” Cattle in Sonora.— The Sacramento Union is informed, through private intelligence, that cattle in Sonora, Mexico, were dear and diffi cult to purchase; and mules, with a hare mar ket, had lisen to the sum of S6O to S6O each. Prom Soil Lnkr. By the last arrival from the Southern coast we are in receipt of a variety of interesting news from Suit Lake, consisting principally of Memorials to the President and Congress, adopted at a mass meeting held, in accordance with a call, at the Tabernacle, in Great Salt Luke City, on the 16th January. The memo rials are both written in pretty'strong language, and although somewhat less tlrery than the speeches which were made last winter by Brigham Young and the Elders of the Mormon Church, still have a tone of stubbornness in dicative of trouble as soon ns Spring opens. The memorial to Congress gives a brief his tory of the various Mormon settlements. It relates how (hey collected in Jackson county, Missouri, and were driven away by a mob, de spoiled of their property, beaten, tarred and feathered; how they went to Clay county, in the same Slate, and were treated in the same manner; how they went to Nauvoo, built a large and flourishing city, and were driven away from thereafter their prophet had been murdered; and how lb y hud, after enduring great hnidships, settled in Utah, hoping to he secure Irwin further persecution, and concludes with a very strong expostulation against the couise of the United States Government in regard to them. Altogether the documents are well written, and in a better cause, would not fail to elicit sympathy. The memorial to the President thus concludes: “ And now, sir, at your hands we demand that justice which has ever been denied us. Pay us those just dues, which have been so long and illegally withheld, and appoint good men to rule us, who have discernment to per ceive our wants, and sntlnieiil judgment to promote our welfare; withdraw your army, grant us our rights and receive the heartfelt gratitude of a whole people. “ Continue the injustice of your present course, and your grave will be pointed out as that of thu man who broke the noblest of na tional compacts—your name be consigned to future generations with ladling infamy.” The memorial to Congress concludes by saying: “ We call upon you to reconsider your arts, to meet out to us even handed justice ; to with draw your army, restore our mails, execute ustlco upon our oppressors, and give us our institutional rights. We ask no more ; but that, in the name of God, we will have, He lieing our helper. Act, then, the part of tli° representatives of a great and mighty nation; seek to promote peace, union and happiness throughout the land, and do not, in your fury, light a torch that may raze to the foundation the fair fabric of our glorious Union. “ We come not to you with smooth speech, or honeyed words; we have not learned to cringe beneath the lash of tyranny, nor to basely lick the feet of public servants who un dertake to oppress us. We approach you us your canals, and frankly, openly and above board a>k for our rights. We will not tamely submit to be abused, us we have been hitherto. We approach you not as a clique, a cabal, or a miserable faction; our voice is the united voice c.f neany one hundred thousand Ameri cans, laboring under the must unprecedented cruelty, outrage and wrongs, and our cry is, give us our Constitutional rights, let us enjoy our liberty in peace, and let even-handed jus tice In- administered throughout the land, for we will no longer wear your cursed yoke of u nconstitutional requirements.” No news has been received from the U. S. army In Utah by this arrival, except that forty wagons loaded with supplies had reached Col. Johnson’s command from Fort Laramie. The army was in good tents, and engaged in re building Fort Bridget. The Dtieret Xetct docs not publish so many sermons now as it did a couple of months ago, and those published are more moderate in their (one, and contain fewer allusions to po litical affilr*. The file received has hut one sermon by Bngham Young, and that is devoted to advice in regard to fanning and home man ufactures. More Mass Meetihgs.— A mass meeting, held at Lake City, Utah county, adopted a series of resolutions approving the course of Brigham Young. The following is one of the resolutions: “ Ilesolved, That we know most assuredly that the course taken by His Excellency to wards the mob now on our borders, reported to be the United States troops, has been merci ful, knowing, as he did, their avowed object to bring misery and death upon an innocent and unoffending people ; and that we further know that, had it not been for the conlidencc reposed in his wise cousela by the people of this Terri tory, and for his restraining influence, the just ly outraged feelings of the whole community would have been manifested in a man M cr that would have effectually put a slop to the pro gress of the invaders in the early j art of their movements towards our mountain home, and that they have abundant reason to thank Gov ernor Young (hut they have not been sent from their present hell to a lower one, by the shortest possible route.” A mass meeting, held at Alpine City, in the same county, on the 18th January, adopted similar resolutions. Here is one of them : “ Resolved, That we will uphold and sustain them (the Legislature) w ith our utmost abili ties, and, if required, our lives, in carrying out the constitutional measures they may a ’opt to sustain Ilis Excellency, Governor Young, in preserving to the people of this Territory life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and our inalienable constitutional rights, guaranteed unto us us American citizens.” A mass meeting, held at Freedom, Davis county, on the 26th January, adopted the fol lowing resolution, among others: “ Resolved, That he (Young) is the man of our choice, and that we w ill continue to sustain him in resisting all aggressions upon our con slitulionu) rights and privileges as citizens of the United Slates.” Adams &, Co. — The Supreme Court has at last disposed of Adams & Co.’s remains. The Receiver is directed to distribute $50,000 —all in his hands—among the interveners. That sum w ill barely pay them, and the creditors may whistle. Posit lon of (he C. S. Troo|Mi In ('(nil. The following quotation from tin* correspondence of the Boston Journal, dated “ Camp Scott, December lath, 1867, 10S miles east of Salt Luke City,” gives a good idea of the position and condition of the troops sent out to that Territory : T'u* whole army fc still encamped on Black's Fork, our rear resting on Fort Bridget, which is garrisoned j by two companies, H and I, of the 10th Infantry. and ! three companies <-f the gidlaut sth Infantry, the com mand devolving on the senior Captain, O.C. Robinson. Next is a squadron of the 2d Dragoons under the com mand of Major Sibley. The other seven companies of j the ftth are just In advance of the latter, under Lent. Col. C. O. Waite. Then comes the other eight com panies of the 10th, commanded by Col. K. B. Alexan der. On their right, about a mile in front, is the bat talion of five companies, all in force, I learn, eighty four men each, under the command of Lieut. Col. Bee. (Captain In the loth Infrantry.) one of the most ac complished officers in our service, (who was breveted in * exico fur gallant service- > mid every way quali fied t<> till the laborious position with which this ap pointment is attended, lie still retains his position in the regular service. In the advance on Smith's Fork, about four miles from the main < amp, is the balance of the dashing and brave 2d Dragoons, under their distinguished com mander, Lieut. Col. Cook, sent to this point in order to get grass for their horses. If it becomes necessary, tbc sutilers, contractors, etc... of the army, with their employees cun lie mus tered into the service, and would probably increase the force some four or live hundred men. Tlie whole army has been busy since going into winter c mp, building kitchens, sink* and chimneys to the ** Sibley tents." Nearly ail the command are living in them. The officers attach a wall tent to the Sibley, using the former for u bedroom and the latter for a sitting or reception room, which are made quite comfortable with a -"•! chimney set in one aide, only the fireplace o< copying the inside of the tent. Frequently, of an evening, you will find a circle of fen ora dozen officers comfortably seated around my fire, enjoying a pipe, (cigars are poor and high, costing only fifteen d -II n per hundred,) discussing the prob abilities of a winter expedition to the city, the plan of opeiations in the spring, the result of the last scout, the chances of a ni il arriving during the month, tbc success of Captain Murry's trip to Taos. Ww Mexico, court martinis, “details" of wood,guard, officer of the id<y, etc. Still lliere L always room f-u nv re. l-.igh teeu men are all-up dto each Sibley tent. For winter quarters, they are a great improvement on the old . common tent, The Steam Waaom.—The steam wagon! I which was being constructed nl Sacramento, lon the plan of Overton’s invention, is still in complete, in consequence of a luck of iunds. ! The enterprising projectors have already' ex pended SSOOO on the wagon, and hut a small sum will be necessary for its completion. Mr. Warren I*. Miller, of Marysville, is const ruet ■ Ing a steam wagon on a new principle. It is expected that it will be ready for an experi mental trip during the coming week.
