(hoville may be likened to a young
man just released from the studies of
a college, or tbe toils of an apprent
iceship ami turned loose to shift for
himself. She is possessed of all the
natural qualities for future greatness,
but is suffering now in dire necessity
for want of the requisite capital
wherewith to start in the business of
life. She has been amply provided
for by nature, and lias received a
fair start in the world, from her lib
eral progenitors, but she needs a vast
deal of assistance and means in ac
complishing her ultimate purpose. —
Those who have her in charge should
not neglect her in the hour of need,
and now is the time for action. Some
assistance has already been given her.
She has some of her demands sup
plied, hut not all. The facilities for
approach to her, have been, and still
are sadly neglected. Roads are in
a miserable state in her immediate
vicinity, and arc growing everyday
still worse, —and the places for en
trance and exit, to and from the town,
are in such a state as to demand the
immediate attention of those whom it
may concern.
More especially would wo speak of
the great thoroughfare to Marysville
by the way of Lynching, and the
road leading to Chico and Shasta.
The former may he repaired at a
comparatively small expense, hut on
the latter a liberal outlay should be
made in the erection of a bridge, in
place of the present Ferry, which is
now the only means afforded for
crossing the river, on the way towards
the immense upper country, the trade
tf which we confidently hope will
eventually concentrate in (hoville.
It is well to look to these things in
lime, and provide fur the future. Na
ture has done much towards making
this a convenient depot for the sup
plies which the vast mineral lands
about us do, and will require, and
those to whom are confided the des
tinies of this fair town, should lend
all the aid in their power towards her
advancement. A bridge is greatly
O O v
needed, and must he built sooner or
later. The roads contiguous to the
Ferry, and the Ferry itself, arc in
sufficient accommodation for the
greatly increasing travel to and from
the north, and luck of enterprise on
the part of our citizens should never
act as hindrance in making Oroville
a place of easy access to the moun
tain traders. Just give Oroville a
fair chance, and she will outstrip all
her competitors.
It will be seen, by the official re
turns, that Butte County has given a
majority for Buchanan over Fillmore
of 790 votes, and a majority over
both Fillmore and Fremont, of 54
votes. Who savs Butte County is
not democratic? The Xavada Dem
ocrat claims Nevada as the banner
county, because they have given Mr.
Buchanan a majority over Mr. Fill
more, while the vote for Fillmore and
Fremont combined exceeds that for
Mr. Buchanan 90. It wont do, Mr.
Democrat; there is a majority in
your county against you of 90 !
What do you want with a banner?
Better send it to some Democratic
county —Butte, for instance —which
has given a majority over all opposi
tion. Butte has given a majority of
54 over the combined efforts of all
factions. If there is any county
polling five thousand votes, that gives
Buchanan a larger majority, let them
claim the Banner! If not, please
pass the Banner to Butte!

Some rascal, or rascals, entered the stable
of Mr. Garriott at the Steam Saw Mill, on
Wednesday night, and stole therefrom a
valuable sorrel marc. This was u very bold
and hazardous undertaking, from the fact
that the persons employed about the mill,
are on the premises during the entire night
and arc liable to detect any attempts to per
petrate such acts. There is evidently a nu«,
racrous gang of scoundrels infeniog our
village, ready to commit any and all kinds
of depredations. It behooves our citizens to
keep a sharp look out for these villains.
Death on the Prairie. —The Decatur
(111 ) Chronicle says that the skeleton of a
man was found on the prairie, about eight
miles southeast of that town. It was evi
dently that of someone who was frozen to
death last winter, being enveloped in three
coats and three pairs of pants. A carpet
sack and gun were lying near, and every
thing indicated that some traveller lost his
way and and had laid down in the sleep of
European Debt. —The London Statisti
cal Journal says the national debt of Eu
rope amounts to’nearly two thousand mil
lions sterling.
The New Cent Piece recently finished
at the United States Mint, Philadelphia is
the size of the old half cent, and is composed
of fifty-seven parts of copper, seven of nickel
and one of zinc. It has a light appearance,
with a faint red tint, and is in beautiful
contrast with the American ’silver and gold
pieces, and will not, as the cent did, tarnish
them by contact. The weight of the new is
only sixty-two grains—that of the present
copper cent is one hundred and sixty-eight.
Counterfeit English Sovereigns
The San Francisco Herald has seen a coun
terfeit English sovereign well calculated to
deceive. The metal is light, but the size
and workmanship are good imitations of the
genuine. On one side is the Queen’s profile,
and on the reverse the usual figure of St,
George overcoming the dragon. The dates
however vary, us different years appear on
each side. There may be an attempt to pass
some of this bogus coin, and it behooves cit
izens to keep a bright look out.
The French Again at Work. —lt ap
pears from El Clamor Publico that Gandara
the deposed Governor of Sonora, has sent
four agents to California to organize an ex
pedition to be composed of French, Span
iards, Italians, and Germans, to cultivate
the land, or in other words, to assist in re
instating the Gandara Government.
Appointment Be the Governor. — Gov.
Johnson has appointed C. E. Williams, Esq.,
Judge of the 15th Judicial District, vice
Pitzer resigned. His Excellency exercised
wise discretion in making this appointment.
No gentleman in the northern districts more
widely enjoys the unlimited respect of the
people and the bar than Judge Williams.
JSft-Four hundred thousand pistols have
been turned out Colt’s manufactory in Hart
ford. Of these, mure than one-third have
been sold in California. The United States
have been furnished with six thousand.
A Good Hunting Peace —Luke Wash
ington, in Yolo County, three miles from the
town of Washington, is a great resort for
hunters during the season. Dr. J. P. Shar
key of Sacramento, killed an otter there a
short time since, four feet and a half in
length The lake is six foot higher than the
Sacramento river, and could readily be made
available for irrigation
Consul Dillon. —The French residents
of San Francisco arc preparing to present
Consul Dillon with a handsome testimonial
on the occasion of his departure for his new
station in Dominica.
The Pottery Trabe —There is quite an
extensive pottery trade springing up be
tween San Francisco and Sacramento. Over
two thousand earthen pots, from the pottery
near the old Fort, at Sacramento, were ta
ken to San Francisco on Saturday.
Hans Cart Trains —The Mormons have
adopted n new style of immigration, every
man, woman and child who is able, drag
ging a hand cart across the plains. They
travel in companies, and are attended by a
few choice wagons and teams for the use of
the sick. The experiment is described as
having worked admirably, andquite a num
ber of hand-cart companies had arrived, in
sound health and bouyant spirits.

Pat, the “Limerick Boy,” whom every
body kuows or hears of by virtue of his
blarney, and propensity for playing practi
cal jokes, was the principal actor in a most
ludicrous scene last Thursday afternoon
Pat had a horse that be wanted to sell, and
by way showing his points and displaying
his good qualities, he trotted him out in
front of the St. Nicholas, and to show how
gentle the beast was, he mounted him “bare
back,” (the horse, not Pat) and with pecul
iar Irish whoop, plunged his heels into the
sides of his Arabian, who, not liking the
style of attack, lowered his head and raised
his heels, and with a peuliarjerk, landed
Pat about twenty feet in advance of his
head, greatly to “Limerick’s amazement and
the diversion of the by-standers Pat slip

Anecdote ok Washington.—Wc
find in Collin’s ‘Historical Sketches ot
Kentucky’ the following little-known
anecdote of Wasington;
“Colonel Derail Payne was the son
of William Payne, who*e paternal mi*
cejUor accompanied Lord Fairfax from
England when he enno over to col
onize his grant in \ irgiu a. At this
time Gen. Washington was s(ati"iied
in Alexandria as a colonel of a Brit
ish regiment, before the war of the re
volution, an altercatimi took place in
the court house yard between him and
William Pavne, in which Payne knock
ed Washington down. Great excite
ment prevailed, ns Payne was known
to he firm, and stood high, and Wash
ington was beloved by all.
A nigtit’s reflection, however, satis,
fmd Washington that lie was (he ag
gressor, and in the wrong, and in the
morniu , like a true and magnanimous
loro, ho sought an interview with
/ ( u
Payne, which resulted in an apology
from Washington, and a warm and la-t
--ing friendship between the two, found
ed <m mutual esteem. During the re
volutionary war, while Washington was
on a visit to his family, Mr. Payne,
with his son Duvall, went to pay his
respect to the great Aerican chief.
Washington met him some distance
from the house, look him hy the hand
and led him to the presence of Mrs.
Washington, to whom he introduced
Mr. Payne as follows : My dear, here
is the little man you have so frMjuent
