This time the protec tive tariff kindled the worst passions of the serpent, and in the blind adoration of free trade policy ami State flights, went so far as to commit the treasonable act in South Caroli na flhal tlehenna of the United Stale*; of passing the Nulli fication laws. Thin favorite scheme so subversive of national authority and deni*# ratio polity, was advocated by Mr. Cal houn. of South Carolina, who resigned his position as Vice President of the United States in order to l»oco:iie the stand ard-l>ea re r and champion of this doctrine. It was about this time that the memorable debate in the United State# Senate took place l>etwreen the immortal Web sler and the favorite sou of South Carolina, the former dis claiming and scattering, naked ami thread-bare, in discomfi ture to the winds of heaven, in a sjieech breathing with the inspiration of the orator, the Statesman and the patriot, cap tivating harmony of the hard, and the convincing logic «-f Kudu!, the destructive fallacy of such principle*, burying it forever in the tomb of defeat in the war of logic.

Horn and rocked in the cradle of poverty, by tin* force of his own industry was twice honored with the first diadem of the nation. Though not highly educated in the school of letters, his wisdom an I logic outshone in the Cabinet. Called on to rule at the outbreak! of a most gigantic rebellion, with but a handful of soldiers, he seized the helm and with an energy that out-traveled ■l»eed mustered an army the most stupendous ever equipped , since Xerxes bivonoced *u the strait ol TmTinopyla!. To the , firmness of the patriot and tin- c mrage ol the soldier, he ad ded the moderation of the Christian and the kindness of the philanthropist.

In IKfil, and while James Buchan an was Jr*t Chief of the Itepiiblic, a tempest was gathering; war-cloud- weie appearing in the horizon ; States were seced ing. and » terrible rebellion—which threatened the very 1 ilo of the Republic—was staring it ill the face.

The European Struggle for Liberty and Free Institutions. —The war news from Europe is exciting. A battle has been fought in Italy, in which the Italians were defeated. The Aus trians call it the battle of Custozza. They await ed the attack of the Italians near their strong hold. the fortress of Pcschiera, one of the for tresses which composed the celebrated Quadrilat eral. The Italians have had their Bull Bun, but we rejoice to see that the spirit of the people re mains unbroken, and hope soon to chronicle a great victory for the patriotic people of Italy.— They arc fighting to free Veuetia from Austrian despotism and misrule, and the entire civilized world will wish them a speedy and decisive vic tory over the Austrians. In Germany no conflict has taken place yet. — The Prussians bare advanced without resistance into Hanover, Saxony, Siberia, and even into Bohemia. A battle is expected to take place in Bohemia, near Prague, a city w hich has been the scene of many sieges and battles. The Aus trian Commander-in-Chief, Field Marshal Bene dek is a Bohemian Nobleman, and intense hater of everything German, an admirer of General Grant, anil is said to have expressed his inten tion to follow Grant'« tactics. He has concen trated an immense army, and the Prussians may meet a more dangerous enemy than they expect. The country near Prague is level, thickly popu lated. watered by the river Moldau, which emp ties into the river Elbe. Prague itself is strong ly fortified by heavy walls, and a ditch which can be filled with water, but the bights surround ing the city are its real defences. Every lover ol freedom will sympathize with the heroic struggle of the Italians. IMiey are fighting for national unity and liberty; but the war between Prussia and Austria is one in which the people have no earthly interest, but will be compelled to suffer all its horrors merely to gratify the whim of a Hismark, or the ambi tion of Commanding Generals. The world holds Prussia responsible for this needless, causeless war. and it is possible that she may yet have reason to regret having changed the peaceful meadows and smiling landscapes of the Father land into gory battle-fields. 11 lUd Blcff Independent.” —This paper has commenced its Seventh Volume, and Thos.

The reportof the 4th of July Finance Commit tee came too late for publication this week. A Littlx Mou Eivriot Waktid.—lt it observed u a mat ter of astonishment that, instead of one mill and an isolated company, scores of steam engines and thousands of men have not been at work for years along the course of the old river ! bed just discovered in Calaveras county, of which it is believ ed that a large district, now comparatively uninhabited, will before the lapse of many years, be transformed into a scene |of active mining hnd commercial industry. The Stockton /»- dependent expresses sui'prise at the great falliog-off in trade and travel along the route in Comparison with that of former years. From some cause or other, the attention of capital ists has not been attracted to Calaveras and Tuolumne coun ties—grand old fields which have yielded a great share of the abundance of gold shipped from our shores to the Atlantic States and foreign countries during the last sixteen years Much of the capital invested in the silver mines was taken from the rich placers of those counties ; and after all. when when trans-muntane bubbles burst, and disappointed men re turn from distant gold fields, the same generous old counties nre chosen as the places where depleted pockets can be re plenished.—Sacramento Dee. “ A little more energy wanted,” is a good text to preach from in almost any California mining district to-day, and Weaverville and Trinity coun ty are no exceptions to the rule. We may safe ly assert that in very few localities in California, of the same extent, has more gold been taken du ring the last sixteen years, than from what is known as the Weaverville Basin. The mines are not exhausted, by any means, but the same en ergy and enterprise is lacking which in other sec tions of the State —Calaveras, for instance is leading to new and rich gold discoveries below the old working level. Here the miners are la boring on in the old accustomed channels. Ma ny of them have good and remunerative claims, while others toil on year after year for the al most sole beuctitof the merchant and water-sell er. If prospecting for new diggings is done, it is at the expense of the miner, for in only two or three instances for several years, and that on a very trifling scale, has any effort been made or encouragement afforded by business men, to the end of more fully developing our resources. Is it much wonder, therefore, that miners have lit tle heart to longer remain and labor for the ben efit of those who hare already accumulated a competency ns the result of their hardships and privations in the uncertain avocation of mining ? Intelligent business men are continually re hearsing their theories in connection with the geographical formation of this particular locali ty. They tell you that in their opiuion (which is concured in by our best practical miners > an old channel exists below the bed rock already reached and shorn of its treasure. Thev direct your attention to the fact that two or three dif ferent varieties of quartz gold are obtained in working the placer mines of this Basin, and urge that quartz ledges must exist in the surrounding mountains as the source from whence the gold here obtained came. Then why not combine in one grand effort to solve this problem ? It would require uo immense outlay on the part of busi ness men, and there arc plenty of miners who would gladly aid the enterprise with their labor. A little more energy is wauled to accomplish this end, and we hope it will be displayed before the close of the present season. It is moje the fault of our business men than otherwise that capital has not yet been attracted hit her. A few years ago moneyed men from be low offered to put $50,000 in a ditch from Stu art’s Fork to the Bolt's Hill country, it the peo ple of this county would furnish a correspond ing amount. Did they evince a willingness to do so? The capitalists say not. If that work had been built those investing would have hud their money back with interest long ere this, the coun ty would have been rich and prosperous in comparison to what it now is, Weaverville would have reaped its share of the attendant prosperi ty, and Lewiston would have been the most flourishing point in the county. It can do no good to bewail opportunities which have passed, hut is it too late to do what has so far been neg lected to the general detriment of the county ? Destbuctivk Fikk at Pobtla.vu, Maine.—A (ire of twelve hours duration on the 3d of this month, destroyed a large portion of the city of Portland, Maine. The loss is estimated at $lO,- 000,000 to $12,000,000, and it is said will in volve some of the prominent Insurance compa nies of New England in ruin. Fire-proof build ings withstood the fiery element no better than wooden ones, and the conflagration was only stopped when it reached the open pastures. All the (Jovernment and city Public Buildings are in ruins. Before the fire had ceased the Mayor of the city telegraphed to New York for fifteen hun dred shelter tents for the use of the houseless populace. Dispatches say that generous contri butions were arriving for the relief of the suffer ers, but Mayor Stevens, of that city telegraphed to Mayor Coon, of San Francisco, on the Bth, that 10,000 people were destitute, and Mayor Lincoln, of Boston, that “money will be requir ed to prevent suffering and destitution.” As there are a large number of Maine people in this county, we suggest that they lose no time in giv ing substantial evidence of their sympathy with the suffering Portlanders. If means were sub scribed here, the telegraph would in a few hours place it at the control of the Portland relief com mittees. Ax Honest Confession. — We should like U> hove every sympathizer with the late rebellion read the following, and then say whether he can not utter an honest “ amen " to the sentiment. A Mississippi planter and a Rebel soldier were conversing in regard to the passage by the Leg islature of Tennessee, of a bill disfranchising those who had been active in the rebellion. — The planter was full of wrath because of this leg islation, and the Nashville Timet prints the sol dier s reply, which was as follows : ” 1 can’t blame the Legislature for acting as it I did. It did nothing but what we intended to do had we won the fight in place of the Yankees. — | It we had held Tennessee we would not have al lowed Union men to vote or hold ollicc,nnd there is no sense in my abusing others for doing to me what I had determined to do them had circum stances been different. I don’t deny that it is pretty rougli to be denied a vote, but still it is the fate ol war, and I know that we Confeder- | ates were determined to disfranchise all who were against us. We have no business at all to complain.” " c ean t help but tliink that the soldier should be disfranchised for his candor. • hazy. —Some year or tw o since the stage pull ed up at the hotel in Trinity Center, containing a crazy man and his attendant. As they alight ed lor supper, the crazy man looked around up on a bar room full ot men drinking red-eye and playing bean poker, and asked : ‘-Is there any Lincoln men about here?” ‘-Not ad —done,” replied one of the crowd. “ I thought so,” said the crazy man, “ for in looking around as we drove in, 1 didn t see a church or a school house !’ —Shatla Courier, ~tlh. The incident occurred in Bob McDaniel's time, and the joke, on the crazy man's part, is a good one. But as it is calculated to create a wrong impression as to the moral and political ttatut of our thriving North-end colony, we take occasion to say that there is and has been a school-house at 1 rmity Center tor a “ vear or two,” and that a hue two-slorytown uall accommodates the Udd Fellows and cuurch-goers.* It is not two years since the last Presidential election, at which lime Liuculn received 49 voles there —a majority of 12 over his opponent, the now self-exiled setnou of the Chickanominy.

Thi New River Mixes.—Our attention has been called to a communication published in the Vre ka Journal of July 6lb, over the signature of • t Lea.” It may have been writterf in the sanc tum of that establishment for all we know, as it bears no date, etc. The writer, after indulging in a disquisition on gold excitements since the date of the discovery of that metal in California, proceeds to devote some attention to the New River district in this county. He has not been there, but obtains his information from “person al friends, residents of both Siskiyou and Kla math counties.” From the information so gained he arrives at the deliberate conclusion that the stream in question is improperly named New River, from the fact that miners were at work there as early as 1852. We are not hold enough to denv that assertion, and therefore stated in a previous article that “ lut little was known of the New River country until the year 1860.” We might without trouble enumerate a score or so of mining localities in this county which were worked as early its 1852 ; which arc still being worked, and will be for years to come. He says Pony creek and Virgin creek were worked out years ago, which may or may not be the fact, yet they do not constitute the New Riv er country. There arc bars, benches and banks along the main stream in which good pay has been found, and the opinion of old practical mi ners who are acquainted with the country is that mining will be profitably prosecuted in that sec tion long after “Lea” ami his informants have been gathered to their fathers. Like many other sections of this and the adjoining counties the streams have perhaps been prospected and work- j ed, yet there is plenty of unprospected ground i which may be rich in mineral wealth for all that ] “ Lea” or his authorities know. So we are au thorized to state by men who live there and ex pect to live there, and work and prospect rather than “ go further and fare worse.” “ Lea” has also learned that the New River i diggings were “spotted.” That is an objection or a fault peculiar to no particular mining re- j gion. The diggings in Idaho are said to be very i “spotted,” and in Montana the same rule fol lows. On McClellan Gulch—one of the richest 1 yet found in that Territory—only one claim out of every six or eiirht pays anything, it is so ev erywhere, and we know of no reason why New River should be an exception. The writer furth er says people have gone there this season and remained long enough to satisfy themselves that the diggings were “ worked out.” That’s the old story —was old ten years ago, and is general ly indulged in by persons who have not traveled far enough or spent money enough to “ lend en chantment” to he locality they are so hasty in condemning. We now repent what have said before, that that portion of Trinity county lying between the East Fork of North Forth, on the east, and the Klamath boundary on the west offers induce ments to practical miners who desire to prospect in earnest, but who do not expect to discover the hidden riches by a telescopic “look” from the summit of an adjacent mountain. A goodly number of men are now prospecting on New Riv er, and in due lime we expect to bear them speak for themselves. When they do so *• Lea” shall know the result. Fourth of July Accident. —By Hie premature explosion of a cannon at Grass Valley, on tlyi 4th, a man named Dean, a native of West Cam bridge, Mass., was so badly injured that he died the same day, and another named Smith had his right hand blown into shreds. Both men were in the artillery service during the late war. Worth Buying.— Harper's Weekly, June ITth, contains a sketch of the late Gen.

Catering to Rebel Tastes. —ln announcing the 4th of July celebration at San Francisco the Marshal invited all societies and citizen* t*e par ticipate, but when several Lodges of colored Masons responded, and desired to be assigned a place in the procession, they wereinformed that they were invited by mistake, and that none but while-skinned people would be allowed to march. It was about as contemptible an act as we ever heard of, and it is gratifying to know that J. P. H. Wentworth, one of the Marshal’s aids, would not participate in the exercises after learning that “ one portion of his fellow citizens, whom the Government deemed worthy to fight, were not deemed worthy to march” in a 4th of July procession. At a meeting of the Twelfth Dis trict Cnion Club, held on the evening of the 3d, it was unanimously Resolved, that we highly disapprove of the Committee of arrangements for the Celebration of the coming anniversary of our Independence, in excluding from a place in that celebration, a class of men having the same civil rights that we enjoy, and who have done much to secure the peace and prosperity of our beloved country. snv Advertisements. special meeting OK THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS!
