Oroville, Friday, ISovenilirr lllh, 1856*
Topics of the Day.
Alter the first impulsive start that
business had taken early last sum
mer had subsided into a more even
tnd steady pace, it was predicted by
many of our trouble borrowing wise
acres that, as the wintor approached
. nd the immediate flurry and bustle
of excitement had worn off, that a
general stagnation in trade of all
sorts would ensue. One of their ar
guments was that the mines herea
bouts were ‘‘not what they were
cracked up to be,” and there not be
ing any real, and substantial source
from which a permanent business
would be derived, of course Oroville
must die a natural dfnth. The fal
laciousness of such reasoning, and
the utter ground’essness for such
fears, is now being illustrated, flu
id nes never has been in a more healthy
condition than it is at present. We
venture to say there have been more
noods brought into Oroville during
the last two months, than ever before
during the same space of time, —and
as to the inefficiency of the mines to
support labor, the wonderful increase
in our population within six months
is proof sufficient of their richness.
At the election for the removal of
the County Seat last April, less than
a thousand votes were polled in this
precinct, and at the recent election,
there was found to be an increase of
over seven hundred actual voters, and
many, very many, were debarred
f rom voting for the simple reason that
the time prescribed by law was too
short to admit of a possibility of re
ceiving all the votes offered. Thus
has our mining population nearly
doubled. This immense influx of
the real, producing classes, is the
very best evidence that our mines
will not only “pay,” but that they
average better than any in the State.
O *
The Vigilance Committee of San
ITancisco arc an ingenious set of fel
lows, and have adopted various expe
dients to “get their money back.”
The first of which was to throw open
the doors of their rooms to visitors at
twenty-five cents ahead, no smoking
allowed —children and fools in arms
not admitted. Their paraphanalia
was spread out to the gaze of the
public —hero was their arms—there
hung the ropes which strangled their
victims, at the ends of whu h dangled
the hats of those they had slain. —
Many were attracted thither, and
many were the quarters that found
their way into the lank purse of the
committee. Then came the patent
Mass ballot boxes, advertised fur sale
by T. W. Park, Esq. They were
something of a drug in the market,
and rather sold those who engaged in
the speculation. Hut the committee
have not yet despaired of “getting
even.” They are now exhibiting a
panorama of their doings. It em
braces views of all their acts from
the shooting of James King of Win.,
to their grand procession. Mr. Pol
lock. not the author of “pandemonium
regained,” explains the scenes as
they are wheeled in front of the au
dience. Thus will the commute re
aliz* the money they have squan
der. I, and their noble deeds be kept
before the public, and the public
mind become familiarized/wlth scenes
of violence and blood —of disregarded
constitutions and violated laws, and
be taught to contemplate with favor
the triumph of mobs over the laws of
their country. Thus do the strang
glers seek to immortalize their law
less acts, and replenish their purse.
Thus do they boast of their triumph
over the laws of the State —to make
money. Thus do they coin the blood
of their murdered victims—into mon
ey. They had better change their
panorama, if they wish to make a
correct impression upon the public
mind. Let the first scene be a rep
resentation of the Temple of liberty
and of Constituional freedom, embra
cing Justice, Faith, Hope, and Char
ity, the cornucopia and waving grain.
For the second scene, let the temple
be laid in ruins, and let the blue of
I leaven’s dome be erased from the
canvass, and in its stead, paint one
black blotch, interspersed with
streams of human gore, with fort
gunny bags faintly outlined, witli a
condemned cannon over prostrate
justice, and complete the picture
with a few armed sentinels. Let the
the third and closing scene be the
meeting calling upon the county offi
cials to resign !
HITT'S Wanted. —Eight hundred
Ka~Li-mrm',riim dollars more on the Steamboat
subscription list. Two thousand two hund
red dollars have been already subscribed,
and only one thousand more is wantod.—
Remember that subscribers will not be asked
to pay one cent until one of the navigation
Company’s Steamboats shall arrive at Oro
vilie. Rollup, gentlemen, and subscribe.
Wo understand that Mr. Garriott n>w has
the list.
Relative Sizeoe California Cities. —
The following is the vote polled in the larg
est cities and towns of California, on the
4th. It will be seen that Nevada ranks
third, and Marysville fourth : San Fran
cisco 12,152; Sacramento, 4,G01; Nevada,2,-
OKI; Marysville 1,880; Oroville 1,088, Co
lumbia 1,074; Stockton, 1.308; Grass Valley
1,208; lowa Hill, 1,240; Placerville, 1,015;
Sonora 931; Downievllle, 731; Georgetown,
507; Auburn,s22. — Chronicle.
The above statement is incorrect as far as
Oroville is concerned. The total number of
votes polled here was 1,703, and would have
btcu at least two thousand had there been
two places for voting in the town. A great
many persons were prevented from voting
by the polls being closed at sunset.
Caught. —Pat Smith was re-arrested on
Wednesdayby Dep. Sheriff McLaughlin. The
culprit was brought back here yesterday,
and tried before Justice Elliott, and was
sentenced to pay a tine of two hundred dol
lars or to ninety days imprisonment in the
county jail. For want of the needtul to pay
the tine he was obliged to become one of the
county boarders. Serves him right. For
Ids perseverance and energy in the execu
tion of his official business, Mr. McLaughlin
deserves high commendation.
Personal. —Capt.Whitney, the President
of the Cal Steam Navigation Co ,and Messrs.
Jessup and Knccland, Directors, were in
town last evening. They have visited Oro
villo for the purpose of investigating the
feasibility of running one of their boats to
this place. They intend returning to Marys
ville to-day by way of the river lor the pur
pose of ascertaining its navigability.
Rich Diggings. —The Golden Gate Claim
on Virginia Flat, owned by a company of
seven Germans, is now, and has been for
some time past paying richly. It is a fair
sample of other claims on the Flat.
Cupt. Lindley started down the river
yesterday in a skiff, for the purpose of ex
amining the depth of water, etc. He has
promised to us with the particulars
of his trip.
The Next Legislature. —The next Sen
ate will be composed of 18 Democrats, 12
Americans and 3 Republicans The Assem
bly w ill be formed of 61 Democrats, 11 Re
publicans and 8 Americans. It is therefore
apparent that the Democrats party will
possess a controlling majority in each House
of the next Legislature. All right.
Dogs. —There are about two of these Ca
nine brutes to one man in Oroville. They
are a nuisance mid ought to be abated.
Imtrovemi nts. —Messrs. Scxtonr & Lott
are building a magnificent tire proof brick
office on Bird Street, between Myers an J
Huntoon. We also notice several new buil
dings going up on Montgomery Street, and
iu various other localities.
liutte County--Official.

Mr. Editor:
We have noticed from time to time articles
in your paper relative to building a Church
in this place, and are pleased to witness the
interest you manifest in this matter. The
undersigned were, in the month of Septem
ber last, chosen as a Board of Trustees, for
the purpose of pushing such project to a suc
cessful completion; and some money has
been collected the purpose, which is now in
the hands of the Kcv, B. N. Seymour. But
owing to the fact that the Board of Supervi
sors, and our gentlemanly Sheritl, P. freer,
E-q , have kindly offered, free of charge, the
use of the Court room at present, and from
the fact that we think more money can be
raised next Spring than now, and thereby a
better Church built, and better lot and loca
tion obtained, we have concluded it to be
advisable to delay r building until next
Spring. The money paid in can be had by
those who subscribed it, if so desired, by
calling upon Rev, Mr, Seymour; but if not
called tor will be strictly applied next spring
to the carrying on of said project.
The people of Oroville and vicinity can be
well and comfortably accommodated, it they
attend Church at the Court House, where
there is preaching every Sabbath.

Favors. —The Pacific Express Co were
ahead last night will: the Bay papers. W nt
son arrived shortly aUer with a big bate;:
of Sacramento and San ir ranci-co dailies.—
They are continually j lacing us under many
obligations for their generosity.
Fight.—A difficulty arose on Wednesday
night between uncouple of “Ravine sports,
and to settle the matter, they retire 1 to the
street, an 1 played a game of “dormck 100 ’
which resulted in one of them being ‘loot 1
alongside of his head with a boulder from
the bauds of his opponent. A dispute over
a game of cards was the cause ot the fight.
We don't knowjthe names of the parties.

That the North tv id demand << *i e I’nited

people are for it unanimously, and every
representative in the Legislature from that
Section of the State is fur it, so far as we
have ascertained their views. Indeed, it
could not be otherwise, for if they do n t
unanimously insist upon nnd demand tlnir
rights in this respect, they would he recus

constituents. Hands off, gentlemen! Our

The Marysville Inquirer learns that
Charles Levy , a partner with E. S. flavor,
at Lynchburg, JVwada County, lias runa

from an article published a week or two
since in the Record, to the effect, that Clia's
Lay, of Lynchburg, which is, as the Editor
of the Inquirer ought to know, a town situa
ted about one mile from Oroville, nnd that
it is in Unite County instead of Nevada. It
behooves the Editor of the Inquirer tn read
his exchanges more carefully, if lie wants to
