Sensation Correspondence. —The telegraph 1
brings us ibc purport of a very clever corres
pondence which is supposed to have taken place
between the President and the lla*rtfori Post
master, but nobody believes it ever occurred.—
It ruqs in this wise: Cleveland notified the
President that English, the Democratic candidate
for Governor, was openly committed to his re
construction policy ; supported the veto of the
Frcedmen’s Bureau bill - that he (Cleveland) was
openly opposing Hawley, who was committed
against the reconstruction policy and the veto,
ami that if his course was not satisfactory the
President must receive his resignation. The
President answered that Cleveland’s course in
upholding his measures was approved, and of
course his resignation was not accepted.
Connecticut Election.—The election in that
State took place on the 2d, and much interest is
manifested in the result. At the eleetion last
year Buckingham (I*.) had 11,033 majority ovet
Seymour (Cop ) la the l ist Legislature the Co
lon majority on joint ballot was 100. and alflio’
n desperate effort is being made, with the assist
ance of Federal patronage, to carry the State for
the Opposition, we still look for a triumph of the
Cuion party. If the Jot-RXAt Office Hag goes to
the peak any lime between this and sunrise on
Monday morning, don’t ask any questions, but
take it for granted that Connecticut has second
ed the response of New Hampshire.
Champion' Eoo-Eateii. Dan. Bowers cat three
dozen boiled eggs at the Empire Hotel on Sun
day morning last, on a wager of $230 between
Judge Murphy and Uip. Balch. Dan. just began
to get an appetite for eggs with the last half do
zen, and says lie could have swallowed twenty
four or thirty-six more without trouble. * The |
bargain was that Dan. was to have one-half of j
the winnings, but Abe. Coffman carried the ar- .
tides of agreement to San Francisco with him, j
it is believed with intent to defraud Bowers.— !
Our advice to Dan. is to have his share or “ lick j
somebody like darnation.”
Supposition.—We presume that the Legisla
ture has adjourned, but have no official an-
nouncemcnt of the fact at the time of going to |
press. It is hardly probable that the session !
was continued beyond the limit prescribed by i
law, and the consequent cutting off of rations.—
No doubt many of the Honorahles will miss their
weekly Controller's Warrant for S7O, all in gold j
coin of the Cnited States, and heave good hearty j
sighs when they think of that million and a I
quarter of the same sort which is left undis
turbed in the State treasury.
Is Tows.—Unr old friend and townsman, Is
rael Comstock, is here to breathe mountain air
a few days, preparatory to the opening of the
summer campaign at the- head of navigation,— |
It is unnecessary to tell the business men of Trin- j
ify that he personally supervises the shipment at j
Red Bluff’ of all goods consigned to the care of j
Comstock St Marlin, and that he does it with
punctuality and dispatch, too.
The Presidents Last Veto.—.V dispatch da
ted Chicago, 2.-S!li, (the latest received) says in
regard to the veto :—“ The Senate non consists
of forty-nine members, of whom thirty-one are
counted in favor of passing the bill over the ve- !
to, and lit’tceii against, and three—Dixon, Foot !
and Wright—absent, sick. An attempt wit. be j
mnic to-day, with every prospect of success." i
Chico ami liiaiio [torn;.—The Chico Conran! j
says tlic new company organized with Capt. |
Mullimi ns President, propose to carry passen
gers, mail, treasure and freight. Stages to start !
from both ends of the route one day: fast freight j
wagons the next. It is intended to have live en- 1
lerprise in full operation by the first of next
Goon Potarows. Mr. J. B. Kise, of Lewiston, j
last year tried the experiment of planting pota- j
toes in July and digging in December. He has
furnished ii- with a sample sack of the crop,nml
we must decide that they are superior to those
planted and dug earlier. T.iey are 1 irge, and of
uniform 9ize, the liesh is firmer, and as yet they
show no disposition lo sprout.

Crossette don’t use any quill, Mr. Couranl ;
Ho is one of the printer-editors who walks up to
the •• case " and puts his ideas in type at the
rale of a “ thousand ” an hour.
May Haul.— Take notice that Mr. Cahalan an
nounces a party at the Oregon Gulch House on
the 4th of next month. He wants the dancing
portion of the community to be present, for the i
best String Band in the county is engaged, and j
he is determined the occasion shall be pleasant
to ail concerned.
Latest Papers.— Mr. Obcrdecncr has again ]
placed us under obligations for latest papers’re-'
ceivcd. To show with what regularity the mails |
reach u« it is only necessary to state that on !
Wednesday we received the Sacramento Union of
March 23d and 29th.
In LCCK,—A dispatch from the Capital dated !
April 3d informs us that Chas. W. Gordon, late !
Assistant Secretary of the Senate, as- !

Senate Journal, which would detain him for
some time.
The Red Bluff Obterrer says that two parlies
•re about starting from that place for Owyhee
one headed by John IV. Phillips, M. L. Chandler
and Gas. Mariin. We guess the latter gentleman
is loading a train for his Owyhee ou the Trinify.

A Retrospect.
The student of American history will find ma
ny popes filled with the record of noUe deeds ;
be will read with admiration and astonishment
bow a mere handful of brave and patriotic men
forced prond Albion to acknowledge their inde
pendence, and the wondrous tales of endurance,
their fortitude under reverses, their moderation
in the hour of triumph ; and their wisdom in
council will compare favorably with the bright
est records of old Roman and Grecian republics.
But if we can point with pride to the days of
Saratoga and Yorktown, there is yet no one pe
riod in bur history—no one month so franght
with important events, so crowded with inci
dents, so pregnant of results, the magnitude
of which we cnn hardly estimate, as the month
of April, 1805 ! Now profound peace reigns
throughout our entire and vast extent of territo
ry. The miles of breastworks are either leveled
to the ground or covered with n luxnriantcarpet
of green ; forts and earthworks which d >tted a
great portion of nor land like so many hideous
excresscnces on the far face of nature, havegiv
en place to smiling meadows and broad acres of
waving grain. The rattling of musketry and deep
roar of artillery is -hushed, and the shrieking,
hissing, death and destruction-dealing shells are
now safely housed in our arsenals, subjects of
wonder In gazing multitudes. ‘‘The pomp and
pride of glorious war ” has given way In peace
ful pursuits, and our iron mountains yield their
ore not for materials of destruction, lint for im
plements of husbandry, for the immense iron
arms which like some gigantic web woven by
modern Cyclops, bring ocean and inland sea,
mountain and valley in one common embrace,
and forge firmer and firmer the ties which make
ns one great and undivided nation.
But who can. or if lie could, would willingly
forget the closing scenes of the great drama
which terminated in the month of*’April, 18C5 ?
Who will ever forget the feverish anxiety which
awaited each pulsation of the telegraph, for the
Army of the I’otoraac was “in motion.” At
last it came. “ Richmond is ours,” read the
dispatch, and the dream of four long and weary
years was realized.
In the month of April onr troops, so often baf
fled, so often repulsed, but never wavering, nev
er faltering, entered Richmond, the impregnable,
as rebels boastingly called it, in a sea of fire and
smoke, and ob ! the justice of history ; negro
troops were the first to march with conquering
steps into the capital of that Confederacy which
had declared negro slavery the corner-stone of
its edifice.
Appomattox Court House ! How loyal heatts
exulted when the favorite rebel General, sur
rounded on all sides by the victorious troops of
the republic, baffled and exhausted, at last bent
his proud spirit to sue f»r peace,and ordered the
surrender of the best and bravest army of the
rebellions Confederacy. The rebel fl ig was furl
ed never to show its deformity again—never to
insult onr starry banner —and the thousands of
conquered rebels were permitted to go to their
homes, there to ponder over the enormity of thei r
crime, ami to listen with blended shame and fear
ns the notes of the national authem of triumph
burst upon their tars.
But the fell spirit of rebellion was not yet sat
isfied. Although satiated to excess with blood
and death, one victim more was wanting.—
Though thousands of families were mourning
over the graves of heroes who had fallen in de
fence of the right, one blow more was needed to
strike the national heart, and if possible to p vr
alvzc the national life, through the death of its
chosen ruler. Instruments to carry out the mon
strous pint was not wanting, and on the 14th il iy
of April the n ttion was horrified by a deed be
lieved and hitherto hoped to be an impossibility
in free and enlightened America. Lincoln, the
great ! Lincoln, the good ! Lincoln, the preser
ver of his country !
•* Live i> —friend of the oppressed—
Lincoln—cuiiq'rur of the uppresaor ! M
fell the victim of a rebellion which for atrocity
has not its equal even in the bloodiest pages of
history. The last blow of the conspiracy which
lived on murder and rapine will ever character
ize it as the foulest and most detestable of rebel
lions. It placed the stamp of infamy upon its
history for all ages, and will have that immor
tality which its crimes deserve.
The nation staggered under the Mow, but sur
vived it. The existence of this republic does
not depend on an} - single life, no matter how val
uable. In European countries such a calamity
would have resulte I in anarchy, confusion and
commercial ruin. But onr institutions are so
popular and powerful, and enter so deeply in'o
the national life, that the first burst of grief, the
first shock passed, and the republic stood as firm
ns ever. With many'misgivings—amid doubts
and fears for the result, the nation saw Andrew
Johnson assume the duties of President of the
United States. Weary of years of strife and car
nage, the people longed for peace, and they were
willing to trust Johnson, to assist him, and
strengthen his administration, hoping and be
lieving that he would remain true to bis pledges.
For a time he acted in unison with the. chosen
representatives of the loyal North, but it was
not long before he evinced symptoms which were
calculated to alarm the nation, and we write it
with sorrow, that he now occupies a position
which must lead to the destruction of all the re
sults of the last four years, if the people do not
make him powerless for evil by sustaining Con
gress against Presidential usurpation. We trust
that a people which have proved themselves the
most heroic in the history of the world, will be
sagacious enough to sustain in time of peace a
government which they so valiently and success
fully upheld against an armed foe, and by sus
taining Congress give the finishing blow to a re
bellion which gives signs of renewed vitality un
der the smiles of Presidential favor, and seems
to awake with astonishment to hear such men as
Made and Sumner. Forney and Stevens, Burn
side ami Geary pronounced disunionists. If they
are disloyal, then let the Stephens’, Cobbs and
Toombs of the South resume their positions in
the councils of the nation, for President John
son has declared them to he the true Union men
of the country. Bui what will the people say?
Veto or ritz Civil Rights’ Bill.—According
to the expressed belief of the President's Copper
head sympathizers, that dignitary has vetoed the
Civil Rights’ bill. Theunivers.il Freedom party
of the country looked for nothing else, since the
President has shown a dispositiou to aid in re
turning the Freedmea to bondage. The veto of
the measure is applauded by the same class that
applauded treason and assassination, and anoth
er class who were camp-followers of the Coion
party so long as there was any show to finger of
ficial plunder. While we regrit that the Presi
dent lias seen f.t to do this tuing. we must ac
knowledge that we prefer belonging to a minori
ty pirtv, if needs be, to training with n majority
amt keep the company of such political Judases.

Editor Journal : —The time fur .concluding
legislative business is near at hand, which is ob
servable by the long drawn out files of ci»her
House, and the very questionable schemes indors
ed by the action of both branches. The Plicer
ville Railroad and. Western Pacific Railroad bills
have passed both Houses, and only await the sig
nature of the Govirnor. The advocates of the
measure brought no very forcible Arguments why
an appropriation siiou'd be ma le by pi icing the
Slate's security nt the control of the Company,
or Icvying-tn additional tax to support an alrea
dy wealthy corporation, but that us the Central
Pacific Kail road Company had been favore 1 in
time past, the same rule should grant the same
privileges to their competitors. There seems to
he a disposition to compel support oi these pub
lic fcchi ines by members of- one section in order
to secure a corresponding amount, of aid to some
measure advancement of their peculiar lo
cal interests. There are inconsistent and unac
countable features connected with the voles of
some representatives on measures in which th ir
constituents are so slightly interested, stud if at
all, directly contrary to the position assumed by
general opinion in their district!.*
Immediately succeeding the sircdess of the
Railroad bill, which was supported by men who
arc known to ho oppose 1 to such extr ivag tut leg
islation for special interests, the S iti Francisco
Street Cars Fare bill was taken up an 1 pissed by
a large majority, and by ft simple majority vote,
and in direct contravention of their rules, the
Senate ordered the bill transmitted toihe Assem
bly while there was a fair prospect of passing it
there. It will be remembered that th it body re
fused to pass Just such a bill, with sin imm iteri
a 1 alteration from the one they will now piss.—
I believe it will pass, although it his not been
taken up at this writing. This is ya propitious
season for such schemes, and after a very fair
record, I fear that the pood name of the present
session will be tarnished by these illegitimate
subject? for legislative consideration. The rep
resentatives from the North, while voting tor
public improvements in a remote section, ought
to hear in mind that they areas much entitled to
such preferment as other sections of the State,
and though this be considered an illiberal con
struction of the premises, they should insist on
due consi.leniti m of their own local advancement
About one-third of the bills before the Legis
lature appertain solely to Sin Francisco, and

IlnviSEo School Law.—We have received from
the State Superintendent of Public Instruction a
certified copy of Section 97 of the revised School
Law, approved March 24th, 18d'5, as follows :
Suction 97 —The Board of Supervisors, except
in the city and county of Sin Francisco, of each
county shall annually, at the time of levying oth
er county taxes, levy a School tax, the maximum
rate of which shall not exceed thirty live cents
on each one hundred dollars of taxable property
in the comity, nor the mimimnm rate he less
than sufficient to raise a sum equal to three dol-
I irs for each child in the county between live amt
fifteen years of age. Said Supervisors shall de
termine the minimum rate of School tax as fol
lows. They shall ;
f'irtt —Ascertain from the County Superinten
dent the number of census children entitled to
School apportionment, ns shown hy the then next
preceding school census, and then shall cnh nl tie
the amount required to be raised nt three ilollar?
per child ;
Second —They shall deduct fifteen percent from
the equalized value of the last general assessment
roll, and the amount required to lie raised, divi
ded by the remainder of the assessment roll, shall
he rate levied : provided, that if any fraction
of a cent occur, it shall lie taken a? a full cent
on each hundred dollar? ; and provided,' further,
that Boards of Supervisors, in estimating said
rate of school lax for the year eighteen hundred
anil sixty-six, shall use the number of census
children between the ages of four ami eighteen
years aeording to the returns of the last ?eho<d
census in eighteen hundred and sixty-five. If
the .Supervisors fail to levy sai l tax as herein
provided, then the Auditor shall levy it and add
the tax to the assessment roll. la ease the Su
pervisors or Auditor shall refuse or neglect to
levy at least the minimum rate of tax herein pro
vided, the Superintendent of Public Instruction
shall deduct twenty-five per cent from the next
succeeding annual appointment of State School
Fund otherwise due to that county, and shall
withhold it and apportion it to the other coun
ties of the Slate ; and provieed. further, that it
this Act does not become a law until after the
taxes are levied for eighteen hundred and sixty
six, and the amount levied for that year does not
amount to a rate that will produce a sum equal
to the reqnircdments of this s ctior, then the
Auditor shall add to the levy such audition per
cent as will produce said amount ; provided, the
original levy and the addition thereto do not in
the aggregate exceed thirty-five cents on the one
hundred dollars.
List year the total number of children between
four and eighteen year?, in this county, was re
ported nt 419, and the amount of money accruing
to the School Fund from county taxes, $1.300,
over the required *3 per head—and as there i?
reason lo believe that there wiil ho >m increase
instead of filling o.T iu the tax ible properly of
the county the present year, it will not be neces
sary to levy the additional tax. We very much
regret that the law does not require the maxim
um amount to be levied.

The First Year of Freedom.
On the 14th day of' January, 18CS. the last
State Convention of Missouri adopted an ordiance
of immediate emancipation, miking it operative
from the hour of its passage. We have lb-re
fore, had on** year’s experience of f ee in-** na
tions in Missouri, an i can aaf.dy. from its indica
tion. foretell what the continued op *r 11 ion of the
policy is likely to he. Never has there been a
more triumphant vindication than (h «t with
which the action of.th'* Untie *1 Freedom party of
Missouri his been crowned. The very fir-*t step
it took was to alndish slavery, making that act
the index to the policy of its administration.—

of universal apprehension, a feeling of absolute

unlimited confidence in the future: and instead
of f.milies fl-cing from their-homes to escape

ways are white with trains of enterprising i 11-
