Arrival of tto* George Law.
LATER FROM CALIFORNIA.
New Yoke, Dec. 26.—'The steamer Georg©
Law arrived lust night from Chagres with
$1,500,000 in gold, aud San Francisco dates
to December 1st.
The George Law reports the United States
steamer Princeton at Kingston, Jamaica,
which port she was to leave on the 12th for
Aspinwall. The Susquehanna was to sail tor
Philadelphia in a few days. The Missis*']**
pi was still at Beneeia.
A great want of water in the mines ami
mountain districts was severely h it. and has
caused a general inactivity »" mining opera
tions. Great preparations wore making,
however, for a vigorous winter campaign.
Considerable excitement was created in
8an Francisco on the 2'*«h ult., by the issu
ing of a writ of huf*'kf rtH'yu.'i to discharge
certain Kussian prisoners contiued on board
the .Sitka—one of the vessels recently cap
tured bv the Pacific allied fleet at Petropau
lovski: 'The writ was served by the deputy
sheriff upon the commander of the Sitka, and
the prisoners were ordered before the court
on the *27th ult.
On Sunday, the 26th, at daylight the Sitka
hoisted anchor and sailo I out of the harbor
for Vancouver. Preliminary steps were ta
ken before the court on the following morn
ing, for issuing attachments against the offi
cers in command ot the Sitka, should they
again come within the jurisdiction of the
C7
court.
Previous to the sailing of the Susquehanna
from San Francisco, a musician attached to
that steamer entered a complaint against
Commander Buchanan for ill treatment, and
the case was brought before a recorder of the
city, who decided that he had no jurisdiction
in the matter. The same day the musician
brought a civil suit before a justice <>l the
peace, who assessed damage* in favor ot the
plaintiff at Sl'H).
The pilot boat Dancing Feather has return
ed from the wreck of the steamer Yankee
Blade, and reporte 1 that she had succeeded
in raising f»*ur H>xes of treasure from tlie
sunken vessel amounting to 5MMX").
A fire occurred at Happy \ alley on the j

h ‘
Withers & *>**' to Vir*l«l»
The question in which we feel most interest
is that of tin- e motion ot the affairs ot the
State of Virginia with Weldon, Withers &
Co. This question is still kept a profound
secret hv tin* Hoard ol I’uhlic \\ orks. We
have the Marcment, however, l*\ the Wash
ington tilohe, upon what it considers good
authority, that they owe the Stato of Virgiu
ja hundred thousand dollar* 1*»r stocks
placed in their hands, ot which no returns
have been made, ami liovv much more no
one uot in the secret can tell. The trust
deed shows that Virgin a s debt comes in
the fourth rluax of ‘cwlit»rs. N«*t much hope
can be entertained that there will bo any
thing left tor tld- class after the preferred
creditors have had the appropriating of the
asset ts.
Wo trust it may turn out that the debt of
Selden, Withers A C'»to the State ot \ ir
giuia, is not large, tor the chances of pay
ment are exceedingly hopeless. Hy and by
the whole truth will come out; and, it we arc
not very much mistaken, it will disclose one
of the specimens ot legislation on re
cord. At the tune the contr ict was made t«»r
this mode ot selling the Statu bonds, we con
sidered that the State was .sold t** W ashing
fott Uankei>. and -»o denounced tin* trail-ac
tion. The danger of placing tie* bonds ot the
State, to the amount <*t enormous sums, and
tiie nmtiev to pa\ the interest accruing on
those bonds in the ban Is ot speculators,
v'ith>‘nt .tf'urd*i • "•'ii. was pointed out and
protested against. An aid*.* dolegat** in the
Legislaturo, tivm this city, (Mr. < *»»»way
Robinson. * opposed the proceeding with a
power and zeal that should have defeated it
at the start.
But it was all to no purpose then. The
powers ot that das went their own way. a*
it he*.*dle>> of consequences. Alter that time,
in view *»t the heavy losses the State might
sustain m the event ot th»* defalcation ot
this Washington banking bouse, the proposi
tion was made to place ttie State in a condition
lea* liable to sutler, bast winter the pro pi *i
ti»-n was mad*4 in the b*'gi>latur** and iejected.
And now, whatever lo-s the State may sus
tain, the peopK in bearing the burden of it,
will kn«>w at whose door to lay the fault. —

expressed the conviction th.it something
must he d *ne to elevate American citizenship,
or at least, to rescue \r from that decline in
intrinsic dignity and public estimation which
nn indiscriminate surrender of it to Chinese
coolies and European felons and pauper- by
the half million tin* year must occa-ion.
“Though obnoxious to insuperable objec
tions in our own mind, yet the bill ot Sena
tor \danis deserves consideration, and is un
objectionable in so lar a- it as-eris the supe
riority of one race of men over another—of
the American over the map4 of the European

notorious truth. 11 ij2.lv and elevated sentiment

immigrants t ow Hocking to our shores Come,
for the most part, merely in search ot richer
pastures, and are impelled by physical want
and sensual desire.”
“This bill of Senator Adams is also un
objectionable in so far as it makes a distinc
tion between the American population and
foreign population—treats America, ns land-,
its office-, and dearly bought privileges <d
every name, at 1 tie* peculiar property of
Americans: and chiefly and principally in
that it tends to keep od from our wnite la

Christmas.- This day was observed in the
usual manner in this place. Divine service
was performed in the churches and appropri
ate sermons preached. I here were many
happy reunions of families and friends and
everybody participated in celebrating the
Jiiv. 'flic practice of tiroins pi.tol*, tire
crackers, Ac., mils canid to a greater extei.t
than usual, and we have heard of several ac
cidents of a severe though not dangerous
character. One boy had his thumb torn oil
and his hand otherwise injured, by the burst
ing of a pistol which he* was in the act ot
tiring. Another had his face badly burnt
and cut from the explo-ion of a powder
flask, and one or two others were injured to a
less extent.
hiroKTAM Citanof.— it will he seen by an
advertisement in another column of to-day a
paper, that the Wholesale Grocery merchants
of this citv. have, in conjunction with tlm
merchants of other cities, determined to
reduce their credit system from six to four
months. In Kichmond, the credit on groce
ries has always been tour months, and the
Millimole grocers have, within the last
few months, in general meeting, resolved to
reduce their credit from six to tour months.
I This fact, in connexion with the short eredit
’ ing upon which tirocers haul to make their
purchases, has induced this change with our
: (iroeei s here.
Navigation —The river above this place
is now nearly free of ice, and navigation has
; been resumed. The Steamer (ieurge Wash
