March 24.156 C. lx Mkmoriam.—A host of friends and acquaint ances throughout the .State are called upon to mourn the sudden death of Samuel I!. Parker, a Past Grand Mustei (if the Order of O ld fellows iu California, and Orand Representative Irom thence to the Orand Lodge of the Nation. De ceased will a native of Massachusetts, and came connected with the Order as early as hi-. In IHI V tie was chosen Oran i Ma-ter of the (Irani!

(Irani 1 . Sire for the State of < foruia, and during the past fifteen years has been prominently connected with the Order here, be ing the first Grand Ma ter an I lirst Grand Patri arch elect. Heat one lime represented San I ran ci.-co in the Legislature, and was one of the founders of the San Franc! co Library A -Dela tion, of which he was Pre-idciit. In 1661 he was appointed Postmaster of Saa Francisco by Pn -- I dent Lincoln. He was a niu-t devoted and in flexible Union man.and in Is .I was chairman of the Tnion State Central Committee. In all the relations of life lie was respected and esteemed, and his death causes public and wide-spread re gret. Hi.- funeral on the Inth was a mo.-t impos ing spectacle, some twelve hundred Odd IN Hows alone being in the procession. Jnmtics Was in.—J. J. Gregory, Ksq., of Canon Greek, sends us the following, which we iuy tie-fore our readers with pleasure:—--A some erroneous notions in regard to the nativity of the I ite Jeffries Wilson have gone forth, I send you the following information gained from him during tlie past winter ; He was born in the State of Delaware, and when unite young went to Philadelphia. Remained there a lew years, and then went West—was in the vicinity of Cincin nati, (thin, for some time. He next went into the employ of the American Fur Company, and was several years in tile Rocky Mountains. When the gold excitement broke out he started for Califor nia. arriving here early in , 4tt. He was 44 years old. This I have from his own lips." St. Patrick Society’s Ball.—The party at tlie Theater last Friday evening was a pleasant one in every particular, although the attendance was smaller than generally expected. But there was good reason for it. The weather was too pleasant and water too plenty to permit many a one to lose a day who under other circumstances would have been on hand. But as we have said the party was a pleasant one, and all enjoyed it. We are informed that the income was quite suf ficient to meet the expenses. Condon got up a supper which would do ns a pattern for future occasions. Next morning some of the boys got a little warm over a false report circulated during the evening, but it is all right now, and the mo tive with which it was done fairly understood. Important to Tax Pavers.— An extract from the Revenue Law of the State will be found over the signature of the Assessor, in a neighboring column. It may contain information heretofore unknown to some, and we therefore ask for it a careful perusal. It has been discovered that some tax-payers have cither a very indefinite idea of the value of their possessions, or else have deliber ately defrauded the county in giving in their as sessments. A remedy for the evil has been de vised, and its virtue will be tested the present fiscal year. The Board of Supervisors have de termined to have what is justly the county’s due, or expend what they do get in trying. Relieved from Service. —Their regimentshav ing been ordered mastered out. General McDow ell notifies Lieutenant-Colonel Edgar W. llillver, 4th Infantry, late Judge Advocate of the Depart ment. and Major Alfred Morton, Seventh Infant ry, late Provost Marshal of San Francisco, that they arc relieved from duty. The Commanding General thanks them for the faithful, efficient and cheerful manner in which they discharged their duties. We are unacquainted with Major Mor ton, but know Colonel llillver well, and cheer fully express the belief that a nobler specimen of God’s handiwork never wore the ensigna of rank. California Mail Contracts. —The Post Office Department closed the mail-letting for the Pacif ic States on the 15th instant. Competition was much greater.than formerly, and nearly all con tracts are taken at much reduced prices from those heretofore paid. The overland route from Lincoln to Portland, Oregon. 624 miles, was let to Henry AV. Frisbett, a merchant of the latter city, for $179,000, $46,000 less than at present paid. The names of successful bidders for con tracts throughout this State will be made public about the first of the coming month. Heard From. —Captain John Malian, of Mary land. formerly of the X*. S. Army, and projector and builder of the famous Military Wagon Road from the Upper Columbia to the Blaekfoot coun try. has organized in New York and Baltimore a stock company with a capital of three hundred thousand dollars, for the purpose of opening up a practicable mail and stage route from Chico to Boise Basin. Capt. Mullen has been chosen Pres ident of the Company. At Liberty.— Donald McDonnell, arrested as Mills, the murderer, and who has been in the Sacramento jail for the last three weeks, was re- j Rased on the lath. Persons residing in Butte county, and who had labored with the accused as late as 1664. statisfied the officials that they had arrested an innocent man. One Move Towards Reform. —Our Sacramen to corespondent writes that a change in form of Foreign Miners' Licenses will be provided for in ' Senator Hawes' bill, which makes it the dutv of the county Clerk and Treasurer, to countersign eacli license, and that all licenses now in the : hands of county officers will he called in.

FI timing Weaver Creek. A project to flume Weaver creek is again be ing agitate*!, and the necessary steps have alrea dy been taken for the incorporation of a compa ny to do it. It is just ten years ago this month since the undertaking was seriously talked of. but at that time there were so many kindred prop ositions before the public that this one was lost sight of entirely. It is well known that between the mouth of Brown's creek ami the old mill dam there were many rich-paying bars which never were worked from the reason that the main creek was so fast filled with deposits from the upper part of th*- Ra-in. when mining was in its prime there, that the necessary fall for working could, not he obtained. Such bars and flats are S'-at tered along the whole distance mentioned, and arc now hidden from five to twenty feet beneath the accumul ite 1 tailing#. Aside from these bars and flats, no one doubts that an immense amount of gold has been deposited in the creek from the numerous channels feeding it, during the last fif teen vears. In short, nobody entertain- a doubt that a Hum - of proper capacity in Weaver creek would be a handsome paying investment, ami a source of great and long continued benefit to the town of Weavervillc. But how is such a flume to be obtained? is the question. Mr. It. X. Davidson, proprietor of the flouring and saw-mill, near Brown's creek, has made a proposition to the business men of the town, with a view to incorporating a company with a capital ~tuek of S-.'i.iiliU. Into such company tie proposes to put his mill and appurtenances, buildings, ditches and water [privileges, provideil <1 0.00 i of -tuck is taken by the town. \\ itli the-e ne essarv auxiliaries the company w ill be unabb-d to go directly to work, manufacturing 1 nipt only the lumber for the flume, lint any sur plus which might he required by miners, renting water, ic. In this manner the operation would j in a nnassurc be a paying one from the very out set. .'•'hares would be Sin. and the two hamlrcil shares to he taken wouhl probably he a-sessial for from one-half to two-thirds their actual val ue for the purpose of paying laborers, provision hills, etc.. emptoyeil on and incurred in starting anil extending the flume. By the second year it is believed that the work would begin to pay. and that at least two hundred laborers and min ers would be employed along the line of tlie flume. As usual, in undertakings of this kind, obstacles present themselves, and in order to get them fairly before the community, with a hope that, the matter will be fairly canvassed and dis cussed, we give place to a communication from .Mr. Davidson on the subject : Weaver Creek, March IT, 1800. Friend Gordon :— I desire to occupy n small space in your paper in reference to a subject of importance to this community, and which, if it results in no good, can do no harm. I have heard a great many times within the past few years of the benefits to be derived from the flam ing of main Weaver creek, not only to those en gaged in the operation, to claims adjacent to the creek, to mill and ditch men, but to the entire business portion of the community. That such is the case I have not the slightest doubt, even though the flume itself did not more than pay ex penses. The fiats along the creek for three or four miles below town, will pay good wages if the main stream can be sufficiently cleaned out to afford “ fall ” for workingthe claims, and will afford employment for two or three hundred men for years to come. This would he adding that number to onr present population. Every year witnesses the departure of miners, becauseno in ducement is offered them to remain, and so long as the present condition of things exists there is no probability of filling their places with new ones. Probably three-fifths of the population of the county arc to-day engaged in other business than mining, or doing nothing, all depending on the miner for the gold which is to pay for every thing brought into the count}-. Gold is our only export, and if we bring more in than we send out, it is very plain to sec what the result will be. A little more mining and prospecting, and a little less other business would, it strikes me. be belter, and would soon pot an end to the com plaint of hard times. But to return to the subject of the practicabil ity of flaming Weaver creek, and clearing it of the mill and ditch dams and reservoirs. To do do so will require a mill and appurtenances, log ging trucks and wagons, and water and ditch privileges, to carry on the lumber business, as much of the ground along thex-rcek will be work ed by men on their own account, and they will want water and lumber as well as claims. How these can be best and cheapest obtained, is a mat ter which I wish your citizens would discuss, and I would suggest that it could do no harm to meet and talk the matter over. I incorporated a company a short time since for the purpose of taking this matter in hand, hut find a great deal of opposition to it which I did not expect. In the first place I did not sup pose that the business men of Weavervillc want ed to engage in the operation on account of the profit which might accrue therefrom alone. ! imagined thal they might have a desire to in crease business, but such docs not appear to li - the case. 1 find that even with everything rea dy to go to work with, they still object to afford ing any aid in carrying it on. I find also that I was mistaken in believing that capital could maintain itself against labor, under all circum stances, and that there was actually danger, if the work went on as I proposed, that I, without any money to hack me. would freeze outthetown with its hundreds of thousands. If the men of the town will satisfactorily convince me of tiie correctness of this principle I will give them the whole concern, and with the knowledge gained will hunt a new base of operations. I also find opposition to my having much to say in the management of the operation. This trouble? me lint little at pressent. and there can certainly he no harm done, as so far as I can as certain no two citizens of Weavervillc have vet agreed upon a plan for carrying on the enter prise. I will leave the matter with your citizens for the present, merely suggesting that some competent person he requested to, estimate the cost of mill, teams, tracks, wagons, ditches-, ic., tit» to the the time of commencing the proposed flume, and to ascertain what water privileges can tie obtained for. Very respectfully. K. X'. Davidson. An Astounding Somersault.— We wonder what the President-supporting *• ifik-slingers” of this State think of Senator Stewart now. He who said a fortnight ago that “• Fnion men must sustain the President.” In the Congressional proceedings of March 17th we find the following startling item : The only matter of interest in the Senate yes ti rday was the conversion of Senator Stewart, ot Nevada, to radicalism. After Stewart's speech, in which he announced himself a new convert to the necessity of colored suffrage, saying it was t.iv only guarantee of permanent pea< e and secu ri:' ■ t'umncr said :*• I welcome the Senator '' .i;. open arms to universal suffrage.” Senators ate a cf I.linois, and Wilson of Massachusetts, et.i ertd a similar welcome, Wilson saying that rq "un t N tew art s proposition would be favora . considered by both the Senate and House.

March 17, 1860. Editor Journal: —Two weeks more, ami the Sixteenth session of the Legislature will have closed. Of the business transacted.! may say it compares favorably amount and importance with any preceding one. Among the most prom inent measures I may cite the Registry law, the new Revenue law. Johnson s Act, conferring up on County Courts the power to change names, which has been a subject of frequent considera tion this session, and the Assembly bill chang ing the lime ot Congressional election from VJ7 to Many others of perhaps equal signifi cance. which it is not of importance to enumer ate, have presented themselves from time to time in the public prints. The Tide Land bill, which has been before the Senate for two months, h is been finally disposed of. to slumber until an other and more pliable representation shall con sider its merits. The (Gambling bill is yet in the hands of the A - 'Cnibly. and its fate is uncertain. Wilcox's Light Hour bill was amended in the Senate, and the Assembly refuse I to concur in the amendments. A committee of Conferee* e from each branch having been appointed, a ma jority of whom were advocates ol the bill, the minority asked leave until next Tuesday to make their report, which was granted, llansbrow, of Sacramento, lias brought before the A.-scmbly a bill providing for the determination of what shall be considered a legal inch of water, as sold by mining and ditch companies, and Relden. in the Senate, has introduced a similar bill. There has been several attempts at local legislation for the mining districts, but not much has been accom plished, nor will be. as a majority of members understand that communities making their own local rules arc belter satisfied to abid * by them than by what might be eonsblered by them im practicable ami uuwieldly statutes. Senator Jxvans' nc.v Militia Law will inahe a Very radical cluing** in the present system, ing the number of militia companies for the .• t ale to forty,and in a reduction of military tax to live cents on the one hundred dollars. As now shap ed; the State will be saved from ST'.ooo toSloo,- 000 per annum on tin* amount required under the present law to uphold this branch of State exnenditure. Many very important amendments were made by the Senate to tlm bill a- drawn by (leneral Evans, one of which wa • t » cut down the number of companies from eighty to forty, throe of which are to be cavalry, and two artil lery . I believe. The files of both Houses are unusually large, that of the Senate now containing about ninety bills, a fair proportion of which are loc-*/ ens ures pertaining only to San Lraneisn '.iwmg the number is one ceding t«» the Pacific Mail Steamship Company three* lots at South Reach, on San Francisco bay, for the construction of wharves for the accommodation of their increas ing business, now augmented by the contract for carrying the mails from San Francisco to Chi na, and unless the short period in which to con sider the question puts a stop to the maturing of the project, I apprehend tjiey will procure what they ask, although there is an inclination to cur tail rather than increase the privileges now en joyed by that monopoly. Hawes’ bill to reduce the salary and perqui sites of the Clerk of the Supreme Couit, passed the Senate to-day. An amendm-nt to >tril.trout $3,000 and insert 54,u00. as the salary of that official, was rejected, and from the provisions of the Act as it leaves the Senate, tin* future Clerk will receive the first-mimed amouru «u <>oM coin for bis annual salary. -Another bill,by Por ter, is yet In the hands of th.e Judiciary cdEiimit tee, providing for the rates u t which ail e4jtying and filing of papers shall be fixed, and V hick will materaliy 1 -sen tin* ex pen- - of lHig;j|»‘:. be fore that tribunal.

Senator Hawes, of San Mateo, who is the cham pion of reform in the present Legislature, lias come back U> see the session closed. First thing he did on lb- return was to introduce a proposed amendment to the ( '-institution, compelling ev ery voter to procure his poll tax receipt to enti tle him to vote. T.te proposed amendment is at the top of the tile for Monday, and will give the Democrats another opportunity of venting their i constitutional ideas on radb-al measures, lie has also introduced a bill to provide for print ing several thousand copies of the Registry Law for gratuitous distribution throughout the State. Another measure of the San Mateo Senator, who represents jointly San Francisco and San Mateo, is the Justice’s bill, which makes the election of Justices devolve upon the joint support of the whole number of electors, and giv* s the Hoard of Supervisors tie option of calling them togeth er for the holding of their Courts at one point within the city: or. in other words, co isolidate? : their election, ami if the Supervisors approve it. their courts also. I had been in hopes of sending you a conudetc copy of the bills regulating offices in your coun ty. but will d»*lay another we* k in order to give you the law free from amendments which might be proposed. The bill regulating the salary of Clerk and Sheri If will be introduced by Mr. Don at an early day.

How Nevada I'mon Journals Stand.— The Virginia Enterprise names a--journal- which side with the majority of Congress and against the President, the Humboldt R*</is'>’r, Carson .1/v"//, Dayton S’cw/AoV, K<rsfern Slop., lon** A’•»/*.•? and Virginia JCnf-rjhis . The Rees'* River lirrillr is only one that is fiat-footed in favor of the Presi dent's position. The gray-haired old Christian of the Humboldt Roister tells his opinion of the President's speech in the following : The President made a violent speech on the 22d February.to a poorly commended auditory. The speech was. we think, as illy-chosen as the posi tion it defended. The Press, and the Country, we may say.disown the sentiments advanced, and contemn the spirit of the harangue. The Presi dent has receded in part from his position. He must give way still more. It is not in any man to stern the tide of popular indignation aroused r‘\i t l< - s P®*ch, and declarations preceding and following it, ascribed to President Johnson. Keierring to the Freedmen s Bureau bill, the same paper sat ? : t agriedfiiilj n ith those Senators who voted to pass the hill over the veto. We have not a doubt of the correctness of this position. Then the question arises; Does thereto amount to cause for a split between Congress and the Pres ident ? Seward says it does not. Weed <avs it docs not: that the President s plan comprehend? a bureau for the care of the freedmen. Bv all the light we have, we incline to the opinion that the President has stooped to make a personal contest on this bill, forgetting the public interest Remembek. —That Mr. Martin's Dancing School commences to-night.

Xorlliem Tcomsters* Associatioin We find in the Red Bluff Observer the By-Laws adopted by the Teamsters' Association recent ly organized at that place, and with which the team owners of the Northern counties signify a desire to become unite !.

General Grant's Position. —Some unsern-; pulous partisans of the President go so far in their efforts to sustain the unsound position mw ly taken by that functionary, as to falsely allege that General Grant is of tlieir way of thinking. The President declares that matters are all quiet in the South, and rumors have been prevalent that be would so far usurp the power vested in Congress by the Constitution as to make public proclamation of peace. In a letter to the Presi dent dated December IPth, General Grant said : “ I did not meet an;/ one, either those holding places under the Government or citizens of the j Southern States, who think it practicable to vithdroir the utthUiry from /Ac South at present.

Mayor of Utica, it contains 49.000 inhabitants, while the whole conntv lias a little over loh.ooo. Ihe Republicans have hitherto carried Monroe main ly by the country vote. The city has been near ly evenly divided in politics. In 1.556 the 1 nion majoritv at the t'oncressional election in Monroe was but AVI. This year it is nearly twice as much in the citv of Rochester alone. It the county has jjainrd in proportion to the city, Monroe is radical hv at least .‘.,000 majority—a •rain of .t _r.i.iist Seward and “ M »'•> Johnson. \Veha\e no doubt that the eoiinlies of Oneida and (Uwcgo, in which are situated the riti* ' of niea and having each a pop ulation not far from 2n,00u, will show propor tionate gait:- for the I'ii’m n parly when the ma jorities tur tin* Republican Mayors just elected in ? hose eilie> are reported. The Republican 111:1- j'>riiie.- in O-w. and Oneida counties have hitherto depended upon the rural districts and not upon the cities. And so it will he all over tin- railed States. In the larger cities, where Presidential patronage rules the polities of the rich and ignorance prevades the masses, it is likely that Johnson and Seward will he indorse.! ; hut in the country, where the rich arc generally honest and governed by patriotic principles, and where the poor can read and write—where the crape of mourning is still worn in the majority of households for sons and brothers lost to save : the country and rid it of the chronic and twin curses, slavery and treason, the President will find few indorsers. The signs are that Congress will he sustained hy every Northern State in the Union, including Missouri and Delaware. So concludes the Stockton Independent, whose editor is a constant and strict observer of every move on the national checker-hoard. Taken in connection with these local returns, the pulse of every lover of the Union, particularly those hailing from the Empire State, must quicken as he reads that its Legislature adopted resolutions by a strict party vote, that “Congress has full power to determine the mode of re-admission of Southern States, and to fix the qualifications of members.” Another almost unlooked-for response is heard from the granite hills of New Hampshire. The Radicals have carried the State by 5,000 majori ty, and made a clean sweep of the Legislature. They have nine out of twelve Senators, and a hundred majority in the House. By telegraph we are told that although the platform of the Pennsylvania Republican Con vention places the party in direct antagonism with the President, it is generally approved by the State. “Dead duck” Forney is a power in Pennsylvania, and it will be a terrible rebuke to the President if at the coming election that State shall roll up such a majority for the Re publican ticket as was given to Lincoln and Johnson in 1864.
