Express Notice. — McWilliams & Tymc

Plat aud B. dwell.
Mr. C. F. Johnson, Esq , of ths Pacific
Telegraphic Co , is in town for the purpose ol
procuring subscription for the erection of s
telegraph between this point and Marys-
Tillc. We publish in this morning's paper,
the "Articles of association for the forma
tion of the Oro Telegraph Company,” in or
der that all may understand the manner in
which such enterprises are accomplished.
There are undoubtedly, chances to invest
capital at a greater per cent., by taking
greater risks, as the general average of tel
egraphic stock in California, pays from 1 i
to 3 per cent, per month, although there
ure some companies in the State which real
ize a much greater per cent. We learn
from a stockholder that the Sub Jose and
San Francisco Telegraph Company pajs as
high as 15 per cent per month. Would
the stock in the "Oro Telegraph Company”
pay that amount, it would be profitable, re
garded as a simple investment, without tak
ing iuto consideration its utility to our bu
siness men, or the increased value that every
improvement of this kind gives to property
in the place. If it shall cost us SB,OOO or
SIO,OOO, and enhances the value of property
that amount, it will in reality, cost us noth
ing. and we shall be the recipients of the
beuefite it confers, and of the per cent, it
pays, whatever it may be. It is for our cit
izens to consider the matter fairly, and de
termine whether they will have a Telegraph
line to Orovillo Our own opinion is that
1 stock in this company will prove as profita-
I ble as any in the State, and we base this
| opinion upon the admitted fact that Oroville
1 is the best mining town in the State, and is
i not exceeded in business importance by
more than three places.
There will be a meeting this (Friday)
evening, at the room of Justice Jones, for
the purpose of taking the subject into con
sideration, and those who arc favorable to
i the enterprise are requested to be in attend
ance. We believe that money invested in
internal improvements of this nature, will
be as profitable to property holders as that
sent below to purchase goods. Let us start
the ball in motion to-morrow night, and
Dkcep it moving” until we are not only fa
vored with the trembling vibrations of the
Telegraph, but shall hear in our streets the
| shrill whistle ot the "Iron horse.” as he
] speeds away over our fertile plains, and the
j cradle of the miner shall be rocked by the
| waves created by the paddle wheel of the
{steamer. Wc have the mines sufficiently
I rich to effect this, and a well directed energy
! and perseverance will accomplish it. Come
out to-night.
jPir It was announced by a telegraphic
despatch.to the California Express, that a
rumor was prevalent in Sau Francisco on
Wednesday to the cSect that, the U. States
authorities would demand the release of
Judge Terry. The reporter was unable to
find authority for the rumor. Were it a
Martin Kostza, confined in their "bastile,”
who had only declared his intention to be
come uu American citizen, instead of a
free born American citizen aud a supreme
Judge, we doubt not but a samraous from
the U. S. Ship of war, John Adams, would
have long since released him from his illegal
persecutors. Pei haps our reverence for the
instilutious of our country, and. our belief
in the wisdom of our forefathers, is too
great, but we frankly confess, and trust
those who differ with us will give us credit
for sincerity, that we cannot see hew the
commander of au Ameriean vessel of war,
can see the constitution of his country which
he has sworn to support, violated, and a
free-born American citizen deprived of the
rights guaranteed him by that coaatitution,
still strut the qna/rter deck of his vessel,,
aud wait for an earthquake, or its own
wickedness to sink San Francisco. When
the Army and Navy can sit supinely by and
see constitution of the United States tram
pled upon and violated by an armed niobi
then has the army and navy, indeed, "Lost
the breed of noble bloods.”
The Very Latest, What cannon was
that asked a gentleman who was within
hearing of one of the ratification guns, a
few days since. Bu-cannon, of course, was
the very natural response. Very good, soys
No. 1, has the true ring to it.
A Dense Population in an Unpopular
Place —There are fourteen persons now in
the Bidwell Jail on various charges. This
warm weather must place them in the melt

Our old fricud, J udge Myers, is mining
extensively and with good prospects. He
was one of the first to prospect thoroughly
the flat, and who also organized the cele
brated Live Oak Company. He has built a
very neat little Cottage on the Bluff, and
is surrounded by all the comforts of a sub
stantial home.

Theatrical —The first appearance of
the Dramatic Company on WcdncsJuy night,
under the management of Mr. W. Hamilton,
was most cncourngiag fur new candidates
fur the patron-age of the Oroville Theatre
goers. The House was well filled, and never
before have we seen so great a number of
the bcaaty and fashion as honored the Thea
tre with their presence on Wednesday night.
'To enter into a nice criticism of this or any
other Theatricu>Company, would be ventur
ing outside of soundings, as wo cannot possi
bly afford to style ourselves Theatrical
The play of the “ Golden Farmer” passed
off to the satisfaction of all, as was evinced
by tho tremenduous applause of the audi
ence. Mr and Mrs. Hamilton were decided
ly the favorites, and performed their parts
to the letter; so did the Miss Franklunds
They appear new on the stage, but seem to
possess the elements necessary to reach a
high position in the profession. They pos
sess modesty combined with beauty, grace
and elegance. Mrs. Hamilton sings finely.
Tho “ Old Dutch Gentleman” was sung by
Mr. Colli»s with great good taste uud effect,
notwithstanding ke received n slight rebuke
from the lessee, Mr. Connor.
The “ Jtrish Tutor” was well played, and
excited a deal of merriment. The song
“ Widow McChree,” by Mr. Hamilton, was
most elegant—’twas all over Irish.
On the whole, it was a very creditable
performance, and gave general satisfaction.
The Orchestra was composed of Oroville
musician?, and was, to our thinking, the
best that ever performed in the Metropo
New Arrangement. —Ourestccmed and
very popular young friend, Harry Hunt, has
become the sole proprieSor of the Dank ex
change. He is respected by all, and will
not fail to receive Lis share of public pa
those who have subscribed for the
erection of our County Building, we would
say, look out for the Collector on Saturday.
