San Fraticlsco papers report tbat
there is now in circulation in that
city a counterfeit five-dollar piece
likely to deceive auy person trust
ing to the ordinary tests. It hears
tbe date of 1809, and at a casual
glance seems as well milled a piece
as tbe genuine product of tbe Mint,
the impression on both sides being
sharp aud well defined. Its riug
olosely resembles that of gold. A
slight scratch betrays tbe fact tbat
the bogus piece is gold-plated ou
some white metal somewhat harder
than silver. In a very short time
the plating wears oil ou Ihe edges,
exhibiting the counterfeit. A close
inspection of the stars will betray,
the piece, as tbey are larger and nut
as mathematically accurate us
those ou tbe genuine. Wheu uew,
the bogus coin will deceive anyone
but an expert. People in L.B An
gelea will do well to keep an eye
out for tho little joker.
We yesterday received a pleasant
oall from Mojo Wicks, E.g., of

and speaks In the most enthusiastic
tsruasof the fuluroof the Territory.
The heal, be says, is at times a lit
tle trying, but that inconvenience
is more than counterbalanced by the
other advantages. He tells us that
nearly all the Angel, fi is In tbat
section are doing well, with prns
psets of accumulating an inde
pendence. Mr. Wicks was interest
ad with Mr. Campbell iv the cop
per mines recently sold at Bisbee,
and Informs us tliat the terms of
tbe sale a* reported were correct.
Of ih* rniniug future of Snnora,
Mexico, in which Stale lie lately
spent a month, ho speaks in glow
ing terms and says that, with
American capital and energy,
which is already largely represent
ed, astonishing treasure results will
shortly be developed. He is inter
ested in numerous promising min
ing ventures there, as well as iv
tbe Tairitory. We congratulate
Mr. Wicks on his success aud trust
that all his future ventures will
prove as rtmuuerative us tbat at
"This is the Man!"
We were made acquainted with
an amusing Incident a short time
ago that occurred on the occasion
of tbo committal of Hunt, the mur
derer, to San Queutiu. As Deputy
Sheriff Habit was crossing on tbe
ferry beat with his prisoner,he met
Judge Hives, of Ventura, and two
gentlemen from this oity, oue of
whom is noted for his .piety, who
intended making a visit to the
prison. Before the boat lauded
Judge Hives proposed that be and
bis friends should accompany Hu
berand the prisoner, who was uu
shackeled and well clad, to the
prison aud afleratating to tbe War
den that oue of the party had been
committed on a life sentence, ask
him to pick out the mnn. Toe
plan was adopted and tbe Judge,
who bad been there before aud was
well known to tbe Warden, was
appointed spokesman. On reach
lug tbe prison offlce he said to tbe
keeper: "Oue of this party has
been sentenced to Imprisonment
for life. Can you pick out tbe man?"
The officer scanned the faces of the
two Lus Angeles men and Hunt,
and after a close and careful scruti
ny, be laid his haud on our pious
frleniLand said:
"ThTs Is the man!"

Gentlemen:—We acknowledge

lorwurded to Congress with tho cer
tificate of the Governor of Califor

What legal steps are necessary to

lish the new f-Hato of Southern

foroa, what other course will he
coma necessary to effect a division?
Iv answer to the questions pro
pounder! hy you, assuming that all
the conditions precedent contained
iv the act have beeu performed, we
belt leave to give it as our opinion:
First—Tbs sot of lhe Legislature
of the State of California entitled
"An Act granting tho consent of
tbe Legislature lo the formation of
a different government for the
Southern counties of this State."
approved April tbs 18;h, 1859,
statutes 1839, p. S!0, is 111 full force
and effect.
Second—Under Art. IV, Seo. 3.
of the Constitution of the Uuited
States, It only remains for Congress
to admit the uew State with v Re
publican form of government.
Third—To secure this last action
no legal forms are required.
Fourth—The mode most nearly
conforming to precedent would be
to secure ttie united action of a rep
resentation from each of the coun
ties in the proposed new State, call
ing an eleoliou to elect delegates to
a Constitutional Convention to be
held at some designated time and
Such Constitutional Convention
would thou prepare a form of Con

mit the same to a vots nf the poo
pie, and upon its adoption and
presentation to Congress and the
act of Cnugress admitting the new

By the phrase, "eruditions pre

used in the report, is meant Ihe
taking of the vote as provided for

the forwarding of such certilioite

Letter from Globe District.
Editor Herald: — Since my
last no uew strikes havo beon re
ported, but tho work of developing
the different properties has gone
steadily on, with promising results
and with hotter showings the deep
er tbe shafts are sunk. The Mack
Morris mine, which Is now turning
out a thousand dollars worth of
bullion a day, has struck native
silver in their ore in large quanti
ties, and tbe mine is reported aa
showing up better at present than
it has ever tlouo. This company
aro shipping bullion steadily every
Tha Golden Eiglu mill and mine
still remain idle, and the oause Is
not known. Old miners, who
know what the mine in, say that it
is in better ore to-day than It ever
was, while others say that tho bot
tom has fallen out of it. The gen
era', impresalou In Globe is that a
gams of "fresze-out" is being
played among tho stock-holders.
The Idea is to get the stook in the
hands ef a few partiss, who were
forced at the start to put the stock
ou the market. But it seems the
holders of this stook dou't "freeze"
worth a cent, but haug ou to it.
Erlund <fc Sturgiss have gl veu out
the contract for the erection of
tbeir smelter, aud already work
has begun on it. It is lobs com
pleted In thirty days. They also
want twenty miners. The capaci
ty of tbe smelter is thirty tons lv
twenty-four hours. They are also

Tbe Old Dominion Company are
alte pushing work ou their copper
mines—the New York and Chicago
and the Old Dominion. Contracts
have beeu let, I believe, for two
thirty-tou smelters, and the force
at tbe mines is being increased us
fact as working room is made. It
is tbe intention of tbe Superintend
ent, Captain S. L. Burbridge, to
bave the smelters running in Ihe
uext two months. Minn assays
of tbe ore of tbe above named
mines give the lollowiug results:
No. 1, lio per cent ; No. 2, 28 per
cent.; No. 8, 30 per ceut.J No 4, 54
per cent.; No. 5, 50 per cent.; No
8, 40 per cent.; No. 7, 44 per cent.;
No. 8, 64 per cent ; No 9, 4il per
Oent. Your readers can judge Horn
these figures the quality uf ure be
ing taken from niese mines, and
there is au Inexhaustible supply
uf it.
Copper is coming to the front in
this district. Copper olaiius thai
were thought valueless a shori
time ago are now beiug woiked,
•nd new locations iv copper are oi
daily occurrence, and the ore
judging from assay returns, will
yield a good per ceutage uf cupper,
*nd generally some silver.
