1 he Americans had held a State Convention
at Sacramento, and appointed delegates to the
Philadelphia National Convention, instructing
them to vote for no man for President unless
he is in favor of a Pacific Railroad, and op

The Indian disturbances in the North, to
which we have before alluded, are rather in
creasing than diminishing, and are excitiug
universal alarm throughout our frontiers.
Hon. Isaac B. Wall, Collector of the port of
Monterey, and T. S. Williamson, an officer of
the county of Monterey, were murdered on the
10th inst. They had a large amount of money
with them, which was not taken, but their
pistols and spurs were gone. The Sheriff of
Monterey went out with a party to arrest the
murderers, but the latter killed two of their

The accounts from the mines are generally

Assassination .of General Richardson,
United States Marshal. I
Never have the people of San Francisco
been more intensely excited than on Saturday
evening, upon the announcement that General
William H. Richardson, United States Marshal
for the Northern District of California, had
been assassiuated in the very .heart of the city,
by Chas. Cora, an Italian, and a well known J
sporting character in the gambling saloons of
San Frau cisco.
It Beems that on Friday night Geueral Rich
ardson and Cora had had a difficulty, which to
all appearances, was arranged on Saturday.
On Saturday evening, about six o'clock, the
parties met at the " Cosmopolitan," on Mont
gomery street, between Clay and Commercial,
where the difficulty of the previous evening
had occurred. After some conversation, ana
at abftut half past six o'clock they walked arm
in arm down Clay street, until they reached
the building once known as Godeffroy k Sill
em's, and at present occupied by Fox k O'Con
nor. Here, in front of the first door they stop
ped, and had some conversation, a portion of
which was overh'eared by different parties, rfi
detailed below, and all, uncontradicted as it is,
showing that one of the most wanton and de- I
liberate murders on record was perpetrated.
Richardson was understood to ask if it was all
right. The reply was in the affirmative. Some
words in a low tone passed. A pistol was seen
in one of Cora's hands, whilst with the other
he grasped Richardson by the throat, and
shoved him into the door. Richardson was I
then beard to remonstrate against his firing
as he was unarmed. Cora, with his pistol?a
Derringer?against Richardson's breast, fired,
held him up for a moment, and then let him
down upon the sidewalk, and slowly walked
up Clay street, when the alarm being given,
he was arrested without resistance.
Those who first reached the prostrate form
of General Richardson, found him lying on his
face, with his head towards the street, and his
feet on the door sill. A leaded Derringer was
lying near his hand, and soon after a Bowie,
recognized as the property of General Rich
ardson, was handed bv an unknown boy to a
police officer, which tke boy had apparently
picked up from the curb stone. These two in
cidents are of great importance,and have been
developed in the course of the investigation.
It also appears that immediately after the
alarm was given, a stranger was observed run
ning down from the corner of Clay street, with
a pistol, and a startling development, it is said,
will be made, to the effect that General Rich
ardson lost both his knife, and his pistol on the
previous night. If this should prove to be to,
it will at once explain the manner in which the
knife and pistol came to be found where they
were, as well as the extraordinary declaration
of General Richardson that he was unarmed.
General Richardson was then removed to the
drug store of Messrs. Keith k Co., corner of
Clay and Montgomery, where he expired in
about five minutes after he had been shot.
After his body had remained there for some
time, it was removed to the U. 8. Marshal's of
fice, in the Merchant's Exchange, corner of
Hattery and Washington streets, where a poet
mortem examination was held by Drs. Sawyer
and Rowel!.
Immediately after the commission of the
fatal deed, the news spread like wildfire, and
an immense concourse collected around the
drug store. For a brief period all seemed ap
palled, but presently some one cried oat?
"Hang him ! hang him !" The proposition was
loudly opposed by some as it was urged by
others, and thore seemed to be no disposition
to take any decided action on the part of any
Meanwhile Cora was taken to the Station
home A loaded and unloaded Derringer were
found upon his person. He was somewhat ag
itated, and accounted for the act by stating that
he was afraid Richardson intendea to kill him.
Afterwards he said that Richardson had drawn
first a Bowie knife and then a pistol npon him,
and that he fired in self defence.
lastead of dispersing the crowd became more
exasperated, and a proposition to lynch Cora
was put to the vote. There was a mingled
shout of "ayes" and "noes"?some wbe ad
dressed the people advised submission to the
laws, whilst others were for rescuing the pris
oner and hanging him at once.

Gen. V* illiam H. Richardson was buried this
afternoon, from Calvary Church, on Bush street
in Mountain Cemetrr. His remains were taken
from the U. S. Marshal's office, by the Masonic
Fraternity, and placed in the hearse, whence
they were taken to the chorch. followed by a
procession of his brother Masons. Gen.
Richardson was 33 years of age. He had been
Quartermaster General of the California militia ?
was a member of the Democratic Nationai
Convention in 1852; and since March '53, has
been U. 8. Marshall for the Northern District
of California. He leaves a young wife, who,
in her delicate situation, is brought to the point
of death by this sudden and melancholy
aexeltlnff New* from Rogwe River.
The following important intelligenoe is from
an extra of the Yreka Union, dated November
Capt.Pierce communicated the startling intel
ligence this morning of a pitch battle having
been fought at Crow Creek Canyon, Rogue
River valley, on Wednesday last (October 31st,)
between about 300 Indians ana 400 regulars
and volunteer*, under CapL Smith, U. 8. A., of
Port Lane. The fight commenced at 1 o'clock,
p. in., and continued till 10, the Indiana
retreating all the while, and firing back upon
the whitea. ? At length it waa deemed necessary
that ateps be taken to provide for the wounded,
and a halt waa ordered, when the Indiana
rallied and commenced firing upon the men,
to whom prudence dictated the course of retir
ing to an open apace, where a more effectual
atand could be made, which they accordingly
did. It was then aacertained that 18 of the
Captain's men had been killed, and 25 wounded
?some mortally, others dangerously, and a
few slightly. A message was then dispatched
to Capt. George, at Althouse, who started
immediately with 80 volunteer recruits. He
would join Captain Smith on Thursday, at an
early hour, when it is expected that u renewal
of the encounteer will take place.
On Thursday last a scouting party of six re
turned with intelligence that aDout 250 Indians
were in the vicinity of the heads 'of Antelope
and Butte Creeks. Captain Thomas Smith,
with about 100 men, immediately started out,
and it is feared that a serious encounter would
take place. The attack, it was expected, would
be made on Saturday or Sunday last. News
of the result is hcuirly expected.
rifht with Indiana In Sbaata Valley.
On Thursday last, Nov. 1st, a party of six
teen men under Mr. Tupper, of Shasta Valley,
fell in with a large body of Indians in the
mountains dividing the waters of the Klamath
and Shasta rivers. After a brief engagement,
and losing one man, the whites were compelled
to retreat.
On Friday, a body of Indians were seen
crossing Shasta Valley from the neighborhood
where the fight occurred, and shaping their
oourse for Scott river, by the mountain trail
from Scott to Shasta Valley.
It is rumored that two men, Mr. Snow, of the
Klamath River Ferry, opposite Beaver Creek,
and a man by the name Of Scott, have been
killed on the trail leading from the Mountain
House of Doty & Doyle to the Klamath river.
A party of 25 or 30 started from Deadwood
yesterday to look into the matter. These two
men led the Mountain House on Tuesday even
ing last for the Ferry. On Saturday, Mr. Doyle
went in search of lost animals; and found
papers and a machiere, belonging to Mr. Snow,
cut and torn up, and other marks of violence.
These circumstanccs gave rise to the suspicion
that both had been killed.
More R*-tnforc?m?nti tor Col. Walker's
The favorable intelligence from Nicaragua
received by the steamship Uncle Sara, appears
to have had the effect to turn the attention of a
large number of persons here to the benefits
which must inevitably follow the establishment
of a Democratic government in that country.
The steamship Cortes carried away yesterday
about eighty-five passengers for Sau J uan, all
having through tickets to New York; but at
least seventy of these, as far as could be ascer
tained, expected to remain at Nicaragua. Un
doubtedly a much larger number of persons
would have taken this opportunity to join their
fortunes to the enterprises of Col. Walker's
party, but for the want of time or preparation.
The conquest of Granada by the Revolutionist
army has given confidence to many who de
sire no better opportunity for the investment of
their capital than is offered by the gold mines
of Nicaragua under a liberal and just govern
ment, and the next steamer for San Juan will
probably carry not only men, but means for
the initiative step towards the accomplishment
of that which has been commenced by the pio
neers under Col. Walker.

Arrival of Parker H. French, as Minister
s to Washington.
Among the passengers is Col. Parker H.
French, accredited Minister to the United
States, in place of Mr. Marcoletti, recalled.
Col. French is vested with extraordinary
powers, to enable him to settle immediately the
difficulties between the United States, England,
and Nicaragua.
He also brings with him the ratification of a
new treaty, made by his Government with Col.
Wheeler, U. S. Minister to Grenada.
Col. French carries with him to Wrashington
some beautiful specimens of quartz and placer
gold from the mines of Chontales, together with
samples of native produce. Mr. Jos. R. Mali,
editor of the El Nicaragttense, Capt. C. H.Bald
win, of the steamship Uncle Sam, Capt. Jos. N.
Scott, the company's Agent at Nicaragua, and
Capt. W. H. Williamson, Nicaraguan army, are
also among the passengers.
Gen. Cabanas, the President of Honduras,
arrived in Granada on the first instant, with a
large number of his principal officers. Great
preparations had been made to receive him ap
propriately. It was reported, and generally
believed, that he visits the Government as Am
bassador from the Republics of San Salvador
and Honduras, to propose a union of the three
republics into one confederacy, with General
Walker at the bead.

in his overcoat pocket, the ball entering the
chin and lodging in the brain. On the 28th,
Henry Barrington, aged twenty-four died of
disease of the heart. He belonged to Phila
delphia, where he was understood to be re
spectably connected. They were buried with
military honors.
The Unele Sam brought down a rifle com

mand of Capt. C. O. Neil, which increases the
American force at Grenada to three hundred
and seventy-five men.

Tli* Eruption of Hawaii.
A private letter, extracts from which are
published in the Polynesian, gives the follow
iug description of the burning of Hawaii:
Hilo, October 13th, 1855.
Hawaii still burns. The great furnace on
Mauna Loa is in full blast. For sixty-three
days the molten flood has rolled down the
mountain without abatement Our Hawaiian
atmosphere is loaded with smoke and grasses,
through which the Bun shines with dingy and
yellow rays.
The amount of lava disgorged from this
awful magazine is enormous. The higher
regions of the mountains are flooded with vast
sheets of smoking lava, while the streams
which have flowed down the side of the moun
tains spread over a surface of several miles in
breadth. The main stream, including all its
windings, must be more than 50 miles long,
with an average breadth of 3 miles.
This is still flowing direct to our bay, and is
supposed to be within 10 miles of us. It is
eating its way slowly through the deep-forest
and the dense jungle in our rear, and its ter
minal must be the sea, unless the great summit
fountain shall cease to disgorge.
On the 2d inst. Mr. M'Culley and myself set
off to explore the eruption, taking the bed of
the Btream, the Wailuka river, a* our path
We reached the terminal crater in four and a
half days, tracing up the fiery stream of the
mountain. In the woods we could not follow
it, on accouut of the dense jungle.
The burning stream now runs all the way in
a covered duct, so that it can be seen only at
its vents which let off the gas. These are truly
fearful. We looked down one of them, and saw
the fiery curent rushing under us, in some
places at the rate of 40 knots. We returned
via Rilauea, and were absent 10 days. What
we. saw and heard and felt, cannot be de
Should the lava continue to approach us, I
intend, after a little rest, to make a party and
cut through the juugle to the end of the stream.
I need not Bay that Hilo is wakeful and
inquisitive just now. We apprehend no per
sonal danger, but should the fiery ruin enter
our bay, ''wealth will take wings like an
eagle" ,
Oct. 15-A native visited the lava stream yes
terday. Distance about twelve miles, advanc
ing with sure aud solemn progress towards us.
All Hilo is thoughtful. We shall send up daily
parties to watch the progress of this devouring

pronounce their choice for Speaker. It may
readily be conceived that theae miatakea afforded
much merriment to the membera of the Houae

laughter aerved to relieve the monotony attendant
on the ineffectual effort to elect a preaidiug officer.

He has what he calls a novel method of calculat
ing inaccessible heights and distances, etc. Thia
prospectus exhibits a flattering endoraement of
his labors and discoveries, and he displays an
unusual degree of confidence and enthusiasm
in the success of his system. The scientific por

it to effect a saving of the intangible substance.
But no invention, we presume, would check the
improvident flow of gas, odoriferous with polilical
speculations, which does not emit a flow of light
to dissipate the darkness in which partisans are at

public. Whatever ia debated iu Congress will be
debated everywhere. The importance of official
reporta cannot, therefore, be too highly estimated.
The country will paaa upon the proceeding* ol
Congress as ihey progress, and public opinion, it
properly informed, will have a aalutary influence
upon the result.
The Daily Globe will be printed on a double
royal sheet at eleven o'clock every morning, ex
cept Sunday, and will contain all the message* of
the President of the United Statea; the reporta ol
the Executive Departmenta; the entire proceed
ings of Congress; the lawa paaaed during the
aeaaion; and the news by telegraph and Irom
other sources up to the hour of going to press.
The debatea in Congreaa frequently fill thirty,
forty, filly, and sometimes more than i hundred
columns a day. Whenever they make more: lhan
twenty-eight columns a day, extra aheeta are
printed. ,
Tuesday's Congressional Globe will be pub
lished every Tuesday morning, and contain the
proceedinga of Congreas in a condensed form; the
current news of the day, and auch -editorial com
meni upon the times aa may be deemed suitable
to the character of the paper. When the debatea
of a week cannot be condenaed into twenty
columns, and leave eight oolumns of the aheet
or other matter and advertisements, aa extra
sheet will be printed.
The Congressional Globe will be the revised
edition of the proceedings contained in the Daily
Globe, aad the lawa paased during the session,
printed in book form on a royal quarto page, and
will, probably, make four volumea of nine hun
dred pages each. The last volume of the four
will be an Appendix, which will contain such
speeches as are written out by the members them
selves, with such deferred proceedings aa neces
sarily accompany them. Complete indexes will
be made out and forwarded to aubscribers aoon
after the end of the session. If a subscriber shall
lose any numbers, they will be supplied at the
rate of three cents for sixteen pages.
It is admitted by every competent judge, whose
opinion I have heard expresaed on tho subject,
that the debatea of Congress are better reported,
and sold lower than those of any other legislative
body. A calculation which I made for the Senate
of the United States in April, 1854, shows that
Congress paya me for reporting and publishing
its debates in the Daily Globe, and then in the
Congressional Globe and Appendix, only
eleventh the rate charged in England for publish
ing the debates of Parliament, and about on*
seventh the average rate paid by the Statea of
Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Kentucky, (which
are all the Slates in which the orices paid had
then been ascertained,) for publishing their de
bates in book form oiily. The debates of Con
gress are offered to subscribers, in this Prospec
tus, for about one-half the price paid for them by
Congress?the expense of reporting, and tfeen
publishing them in the Daily Globe to enable
members to revise their remarks for the Congres
sional Globe and Appendix, are all paid for by
Congress, and do not form any part of the *6
which an individual pays for them. Calculations
showing the prices paid for debates are printed on
the fourth page of the paper.
To facilitate the circulation of the Congreasional
Globe and cheapen it to subscribers, Congress
passed a joint reaolutiou making it freeof postage.
I annex it, aa the law may not be acceaaible to
postmasters generally:
" Joint Resolution providing for the distribution of
the Laws of Congress and the Debates thereon.
"With a view to the cheap circulation of the
laws of Congress and the debates contributing to
the trne interpretation thereof, "and to- make free
the communication between the representative
and constituent bodies:
"Be it resolved by the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives of the United States of America tn Con
gress assembled, That from and after the present
session of Congress, the Congressional Globe and
Appendix, which contain the laws and the debatea
thereon, shall pass free through the mails so long
as the same shall be published by order of Con
gress: Provided, That nothing herein shall be
construed to authorise the circulation of the Daily
Globe free of postage."
I commenced publishing the Congressional
Globe and Appendix in 1833. They now make
tbirty-sevea volumes. The first edition of many
of them ia exhausted, and I am now reprinting
and stereotyping them. They cannot be afforded
for less than $7 50 a volume. Should any sub
scriber wish the back numbers, they will be fur
nished, well bound, at that rate.

GENTLEMAN?Tbe valuable medicinal
proper!ies of Balsam Copaiba have long
been recognised by tbe faculty, but tbe great dis
advantage urisiug /row ila u?uteou? taste baa
huherte prevented ita administration in many
diseases for wbich it is particularly adapted. Tbe
usual ' modui operandi" of prescribing it, either
in tbe form of an Emulsion or Gelatinous Cap- J
sules, has not been found satisfactory, being liable
to some objection, either from the difficulty expe
rienced by some individuala in the deglutition of
the Capsule or the small quantity of Copaiba gen
erally /bund in tbe Emulsion.
Joyce's tasteless solution of Copaiba is the
most unique preparation yet introduced to tbe
medical profession, as it contains 50 per cent, of
the purest Para Copaiba, without taste or smell,
and at same time mixes clearly and freely with
water, and is pronounced by the most eminent
pbysiciana and analytical chemists in tbe old and
new worlds to coutaiu all tbe medicinal proper

It is an efficient preparation for all diseases of
the mucous membranes, and particularly Gono

atiections, and in chronic irritation of tbe bladder.
