TO INVALIDS yyrHOSE SUFFERINGS HAVE been protracted from bidden causes and mal treatment, and who require prompt relief to rentier existence desirable. Dr. J. PERU AULT, GRADUATE OF Gneen’s College, begs to inform patients anti others seeking medical advice that he may be consulted personally or I*3' letter in all ca ses of Nervoua anti Physical Debility-, and the various disorders arising from sedenta ry habits, excess, accident or climate, from 9, a. m. to 12, m., anti from 2 to 8, p. m., at his office, Armory Building. northeast corner Mont gomery ami Sacramento streets. Rooms Nos. 9, 10 ami 11, first floor up stairs. Entrance on either Montgomery or Sacramento streets. NO APOLOGY SEEMS REQUISITE for offer !ng to the public an advertisement of this kind, for it is universally' acknowledged that the treatment of these particular diseases consti tutes a branch of medicine which has NEVER been sufficiently cultivated, in consequence of the fastidiousness of the profession, who have abandoned these specialities to the care of unqualified practi tioners. There exists here no power to repress the im pudence and effrontery of men who are totally incompe tent to perform the duties of their so-called medical practice, thereby inflicting miseries to a degree mipanlb led in any other class of human disorders. The only way to remedy this evil is to call the attention of the public to a WELL IN FORMED MEMBER of the medical profession, le gally qualified, and who devotes his exclusive atten tion to diseases arising from the unduo excitement of the generative organs, together with those incidental stages of acute disorder which, when neglected, terminate in the horribly-wasting form of constitutional disorganization.— DOCTOR P ERR AULT has paid the most ANX IOUS AND UNTIRING ATTENTION, for the last EIGHT YEARS, to a special branch of study, and his mode of proctice, suggested and improved b3 p experience, and ex periments made through the medium of the microscope, enables him to detect the presence of semen In the urine. We wish to impress those who have failed of relief else where. that they may derive benefit from examination of the urine in coses of Seminal .Emissions and Impotency.as well as in cases of Gravel, diseases of the Bladder and Kid neys, and we can at once ascertain the cause of the pa tient’s complaint, so as to prepare the proper remedies for each particular disorder, and according to each case. Patients suffering from Venerial Diseases in aii3* stage, Pains in the Bones, Rheumatism, or from tiic effects of Mercurial Poisoning, who can visit us personally, will re ceive, iu addition to our usual treatment, MEDICATED VAPOR BATHS, without further charges. This Bath has nearly superseded nil other treatment in Europe. Refer ence will be given to several who have been cured by this treatment, after having failed with others. Persons of both sexes who have impaired their health and destroyed the vigor of their minds l»y their own mis conduct. ami thus deprived themselves of the pleasures of life, are informed that on consulting Ur. PEItBAULT they will find a friend and a Physician who has cured many in ever}' part of the State, who applied broken down in health, but are now rejoicing in all that makes life desirable and man happy. References can be given, when required, in almost every part of the State, from parties who know of cases cured by Dr. PERU AULT, after in vain trying sever al physicians. His Dipl Oman are in his office, where all persons can see for themselves that they are under the care of a regularly qualified practitioner.

The People of the. State of California, represented in Senate and Assembly, do enact as follows: Section' I.—From and after the first day of May, A. D. one thousand eight hundred and six ty-six, all warrants drawn on the county treasu ry of the county of Trinity, shall he signed by the county Auditor and countersigned by the District Attorney of said county, whose duty it shall be to countersign all warrants drawn on the treasury by the county Auditor, provided all the provisions of law controlling the issue of said warrants have been complied with, and all warrants not drawn in conformity with the pro visions of this act shall be void. Skc. 2.—From and after the first Monday in March, A. D. one thousand eight hundred and sixty-eight, no warrant drawn on the county treasury of Trinity county, shall bear any inter est whatever, nor shall the county of Trinity be liable to pav any interest upon any indebtedness created after the above specified lime. Sec. 3—All acts or parts of acts, so far as they conflict with the provisions of this act are hereby repealed. [We received a copy of the above act from Assemblyman Dorr, on the Cth, with notice that it had passed the Assembly, and presume that it has become a law, as we have since received a letter from Chas. \V. Gordon stating that all bills relating to Trinity county had passed both Houses, and been approved by the Governor.] Senator Conness.—The New York Tribune publishes the following in its Washington cor respondence, which though highly creditable to ottr Senator, has not been generally published on this side ; “Senator Conness to-day received a telegram from California signed by two prominent gentle men, one of whom is a member of the State Gov ernment, to the following etfect : ‘ Wo congntulatc you on your vote [on the Freodmcn's Bu reau bill]-—California is for treed »m.’ Senator Conness sent the following telegraph ic reply : ‘Thank* for your approval: Tam proud that California stands for liberty and justice. No one need fear that I will swerve, if I stand alone: rebel*, traitors and Swiss (J minis, altogether, cannot, must not wrench the fruits of national victory from loyal grasp and just uses. John Conne-s.’ ” And the Senator s constituency are addition ally proud of him, now that he lias by deed af forded fresh evidence of his unswerving devo tion to the cause of freedom. The career of old Mr. Forbes, of the Humboldt (Nevada) Register, has been a truly eventful one. Read the following, related by him “ Speak ing of things dramatic reminds ns of the time wo put in a weary night at Onsley’s Bar. The landlady’s daughter tried to make out one gait, and wc evaded all direct questions. At last she determined beyond persuasion that we were ‘ a actor.’ Not denying it nailed the Assumption for a certain fact. Humoring this, wc asked her if they ever had theatrical performances there.— 1 No, thir.’ said the lisping fair one with the gold en locks, I we hnv’nt had any theater yet ; we was go in ’ to have Damon and Pyth lath last month, up at Outhleylh’s, and every body went ; but Damon gdt Pythialh drunk, and it didn’t go.’ ” Bct Californians should hear in mind that, had the Civil Rights bill become a law, the Chinese of tliis State would have been placed on a par with the white citizens. —San Francisco Call. The Copperhead editor of the Call is cither ig norant or utterly regardless of his veracity. The Civil Rights bill, if law, would put those few Chinamen, lorn in this country , on a civil equali ty with other natives—sue and be sued, testify as witnesses, kc. The Call must be anxious to deceive its readers. —Marysville Appeal. So it is, but is making a miserable job of it in this matter. Ax Opinion.—Of the late session of the Cali fornia law-makers, tbc Sacramento lice says : “ The Legislature which has just come to an end will be remarked hereafter as one of the most respectable that ever graced our capitol. Every thing has been conducted in a regular, methodi cal manner, more characteristic of a counting room, and if there was no excitement, the pub lic were probably all the better for its absence. Signal ability does not require to manifest itself by loud voiced utterances and ferocious gestures.” In publishing the following verse, the Buffalo Express remarked that four lines more beautiful are rarely written : u A solemn mnrmnr in the soul TelN of the world to he. As traveler, hear the billow* roll Before they reach the eea," The Utica Herald adds a verse, and says that four lines more truthful are rarely written ; “A solemn buzzing in the ear, When yon retire to bed, Tells you that swilling lager beer Is dreadful for the hetyl.” Evidence accumulates to show that the Presi ident was induced by Copperheads and ex-rebels to abandon his just intention to approve the Freedmen’s Bureau bill. In that connection the Cincinnati Commercial says :—“ The Bureau bill was originally prepared by Gen. Howard, and re vised in consultation with Senator Trumbull. — It was then submitted to the President, who ex amined it with care, and approved it cordially.” What it Cost. —The expense to tbc State of the recent session of the Legislature, as reported by the State Controller, was $299,773 75, Good - By. Never again shall I sit in the gloaming. Hushing and stilling the beat of my heart. For the quick tread that announces thy coming Never again the swift blushes will start. When ’mid the darkness that surges around me, Vainly I look for the promise of light. How shall I for the love that once crowned me, Ere on my soul fell the blackness of night? Turn where I will, there arc pleasure and gladness, Music's soft flow, and joys almost divine, Radient eyes that seem mocking my sadness, Over the flow of their amber-hued wine.. Beautiful forms are whirled by in the dances, Faces that flash on me out of a dream! Shine, ye bright jewels, and yet brighter glances. Molt’my cold heart with your glittering beams! Coldly I roam ’mid the glow and the glitter, Careless of splendors that weary me so. Feeling, alas! that my heart has grown bitter Under Its burden of sorrow and woe. Still I *mnst stifle my moans and my sighing, Deck my wan face in the ghost of a smile. Chatter and sing while my hopes are all lying Dead in the depths of my bosom the while. Little they think when my laugh rings the lightest, Of the torn heart that is heating below; Or. when the rose on my cheek hnrns the brightest, Little they dream ’tis depair feeds the glow. Never again shall 1 wander beside thee [dwell; Through the loved scenes where bright memories Blessings attend thee, whatever betide thee, Tis my heart's prayer as I murmur—farewell I JVasby Cautions tUe Democracy.

T protest ! Androo Johnson may possibly be on the high road to Democrisy, but ez yet what nshoorence have we! Am I dalin my' letters from “Post Orifis, Confedrit X Roads ?” Hcz there bin as yit any well authenticated case uv the removal uv a Abolishnist and the appointment of a Con stooshr.n Democrat in his stead? Not that I hev heard of. Per contrary, the Ablishnists—them es wnr, apinted by Linkin—are still bolding on ez calm as a Summer mornin, without any ap parent fear uv any change alfectin them. Who pays for the hall ? Who pays the music ? Who pays the powder? Democrats who do these i scent post olfises in the distanse. Are they like t the war boss in Job’s writins, who smelled the : battle afar off and remarked ha ! ha ! to the tem pest ? Let me cntreetsich that they kin make a belter investment uv their means. The cost uv one mcelin, put up in korn whisky wood not only solace theirselves, but start half a dozen Abolitionists on the road to Dimocrisy. Men is deceptive. I hev hopes uv Androo Johnson myself, and principally bccos Vallan digutn and Fernandy Wood hev hopes. Them buzzards kin smell carrion a long distance, and they are seldom at fault. In this case they may be. They base their hopes on Johnson’s speech at Washington, on the 22d. There may be suthin in it, but aint if possible that the stench which they took for Dimocrisy, and which they sposcd cum from Johnson, ariz from them ez surrounded him ? “ P>ut,” scz a Dimocrat, whose nose,from long continued lack of supplies, hez softened down from a ginerous crimson to a ghastly bloo, and who wouldent hev a small post orfis at no price if it wuznt offered to him, “ look at the class he spoke to.” What nonsents ! Androo wuz mad. There wuz a mass of bile on hiz politikle stummick, which must be got rid uv—he had some nasty things to say, and it wuz a part of the eternal fitness uv things that he should hev a nasty audience to say 'em to. 1 don’t propose to go orf into spasms over the present sitooashun. Johnson proposes to con linoo the Freedmen’s Buro, and hezn’t no noshun of repeelin the test oath, or uv drawia the mili tary out uv the Dimokratic States. So far as heard from, we uv the South is still in a stait uv abject cussitood. Our habis corpuscs, which Linkin took away from us, hevn't been returned, and we are oblceged to get along ez best we kin without cm.' I knocked down a small nigger yesterday for the purpusuv assertin the sooperi ority uv the Caucashan race over the Afrikin, and was to wuust hauled up afore a Freedmen’s iluro and fined. Our high toned and chivalrous members are excloodcd from Congris on the friv olous plea that they wuz kernels and briggydeer Gincrals in the Confedcrit servis, and all these out-’gis agin Dimokrisy Androo Johnson, by permittin, absolootly approves. I could probably swaller all these things. I am a Dimikrat uv thirty years standin, and uv course hev bin on both sides of every politikle fence—the scats uv my politikle pants is full of slivers. But before I take down these things 1 want to know what lam goin to git for it. Ef Androo Johnson goes back on his party and pled ges, he uv course asks us to go back on ourn.— In sich transactions, where both parties, by be in engaged in it, all confess themselves rulhcr a low grade of skoundrcls, I think it well cnougli to hev the consideration paid down. Ef Androo Johnson wants me he knows the terms. lam his to command for a consideration —ez much so as the thousands uv Demokrats who hev bin for the past week gittin up demon strations. Hut I want suthin to go on. When I hev his permission under the broad seel uv the Post Orfis Department to write “P. M.” after my illustrious name, I shell be prepared to wade in. I hev been huntin up several reasons for supportin him—l hev em all ready—l only want this additional one and then fling my banner to the breeze.

Forney was serenaded at Washington on the evening of Feb. 27th by the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ National Union League. Colonel Forney made a very sarcastic speech, in which, after remarking that the present state of things in Washington made him feel as if it were the metropolis of a great slave despotism where Northern men were permitted to live but not to speak their sentiments, he said : 11 There is not a principle that I have advocated in the Daily Morning Chronicle here, and in the Crete of Philadelphia, that has not been taught to us by Andrew Johnson of Tennessee, who taught us treason was a crime and should be punished. It was Andrew Johnson who eman cipated the slaves in Tennessee by his own will when President Lincoln proposed to exempt that State from bis proclamation. It was An drew Johnson who demanded that the splendid property of rebel lords and masters be confis cated and divided among brave men who fought the battles of the country. It was Andrew Johnson who promised the colored men of Ten nessee that he would be their Moses, [laughter,] and lead them into the happy land. It was An drew Johnson who not only said that treason was made infamous, but that death was too easy a punishment for a traitor. It was Andrew Johnson of Tennessee who, in the Senate of the United States, in 1860 and 1861, in the face of traitors who were then plotting to secede, de clared that if he were President he would hang them as so many criminals. It was Andrew Johnson who led the radical movement before he was President, who inspired it with courage, who called upon strong men in the North to fol low his example. In what you and I are doing we are simply following his example. Is it not therefore extraordinary that events such as these transpired, and that he who has been our leader is about to become our persecutor, that in fact you who happen to bold offices in departments are to be punished, sacrificed for being true to his principles? I do not wonder that secession ists and returned rebels of the city of Washing ton are filled with satisfaction at such a pros pect, and I would congratulate them upon the fact that they have secured a great prize, and were on the eve of a great victory if I did not look to that great Northern country, [applause,] and sec millions of people, who are this night agonizing over the crisis of the Republic, and who have resolved, with resolution unparallelled even in our own wonderful history, to sustain their faithful representatives who are deliber ating, and thank God with united calmness and fearless hearts, in yonder marble pile. [Ap plause.] Why, gentlemen, sometimes when 1 dwell up on this theme, I almost feel as though 1 was trans ported to another planet. It is as if, like Rip Van Winkle, I had slumbered for many years, and had suddenly awakened to find myself in a new community, as it were, among my posterity, talking to strangers and looking upon strange faces. What is it I see ? Andrew Johnson, idol, organ and prattler and protector of men who, during four years, were his persecutors and his revilcrs. Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, receiv ing and being introduced to a ragged battalion of returned traitors by the counsels and apolo gies of the assassins of Abraham Lincoln, and the miserable wretch Wirz who was executed a few months ago. Andrew Johnson, of Tennes see, in front of the Presidential mansion, speak ing of leading patriots as traitors 1 It is indeed a miracle of miracles. I do not desire and did not regard your visit as intended to give me an opportunity to reply to the President in words unbecoming a gentleman. I am not to imitate manners that have been set by the President of the United States. [Applause.] We should not only look to our Chief Magistrate for elegance of manners, but for decency of language. We should always find in him eminent sobriety [laughter] of deportment, dignity of expression, unerring courtesy, and graceful language ; for, gentlemen, if we look in vain for such in the head of the civilized and Christain nations, where else shall we look for them? If there is anything that eminently characterizes this great American people, it is that their intelligence teaches them to respect the rights and feelings of others. From this sentiment springs the noble philanthropy which sacrifices and strengthens the important movement in which they are now engaged; for we arc on the threshold not merely of party conflicts; we have before us mighty labors. We can no more tear ourselves away from our work, than I can reach out with the feeble arm and tear out one of those stars now sparkling in the eternal heavens. He is a moat incapable leader who strives to evade and delay eternal truths and duties. Shall four millions of human beings, made free by a great war, and over the graves of their tyrants and our betray ers, be left in moral servitude? You have pass ed through more dangers, soldiers, and helped to solve and settle more troubles that can be sur passed by any yet unborn, and if we follow God’s law, we shall not be lost.” Gets and Ins. —Mr. W. 11. Uhodehamel for the purpose of making himself one of the num ber leaving for the north in pursuit of treasure supposed to bo lying around loose up in the Ida ho or Montana country, resigned his positon as agent here for the Stage Company—one that he has held for the past four years, to the satisfac tion of all concerned. His place was filled, at his request, by Mr. John Craddock, one of the Company's best drivers. A good appointment. While we congratulate Mr. Craddock on his pro motion, we hope good fortune may attend the retiring official in his struggles with the north erners and their horrible climate in the acquire ing of huge lots of kale. — Shaeta Courier, it . We concur in the Courier't opinion, so far as both gentlemen are concerned. The confidence of Speaker Colfax that Presi dent Johnson would sign the Freedmen s Bureau bill had been so implicit that he wagered a box of cigars with a prominent member from Con ! necticut, asserting at the time that he had con versed with the President, and had been made aware of his views. The next morning the ci gars were found on the desk of the member, en dorsed, ‘ From a victim of misplaced coufideucc.’ The Washington correspondent of the San Francisco Bulletin writes Representative Bid well has recommended Secretary Seward to ap point Dr. T. H. Rose, of Benecia, as Consul at Tahiti, in place of the present incumbent, who is said to be an illiterate Englishman.” At Brownsville, Texas, it has got to be a com mon remark at the breakfast table, “ Well, who was killed last night?” or, “Were there any bodies found floating in the river yesterday ?” Some boys were recently trying to ascertain to which particular class of trees the Tree of Knowledge belonged, when a little fellow gave it as his opinion that it must be a birch tree.
