oko: h. cioiiTTi, Kdilur. Wcdornday, Kovcubcrll, 185 C. Topics of (lie Day, The Last Number of the New Yoi k Herald, received in California, 7 I published since the Democratic tri umph in the glorious old Keystone State, is perfectly furious and flour ishes its cudgels with awful carnest liC.vs and vehemence. The poor old strumpet! By chance, the Herald, in its endeavors to be on die winning ■f-nlCj favored the election of Mr. Bierce four years since, and the over whelming triumph of the Democracy then, induced the self-inflated con ductors of the Herald, to believe that the victory had been achieved by their efforts. Indeed, if we remem ber aright, it was the Herald’s boast that they had elected Mr. Pierce. — »Since the Herald has fancied it had the power to elect to the Presidency whomsoever it pleased, and it had but to succeed in electing John C. Fremont, in order to make good its boa-t. Had Fremont been succes ful, the Herald’s character and power would have been established. The boast of being able to control the destines of the American nation v ould have been true to the letter, and James Gordon Bennett, who has been kicked, cuffed, and caned thro’ the streets of N. Y., w ould have been able to have set up and knocked down again whatever party ho chose —or, repudiating all parties, build up a new one and place it in power in less than a year. It was for this that the Herald was fighting. It O O boasted of having the power to ac complish this, and it was engaged by the Republican party. Its duty to that party was a pleasure to itself, for it wished to wreak vengeance up on democracy, and make an exhibition of power that should ren der its will supreme. In its fancied strength, it set up a man of straw, and bucked him against the univer sal Democratic party. Had it been successful, great would have been the triumph ; but it failed, and great was the fall. Down goes the Herald, bouncing from point to point, like .Milton's Bclzcbub, in his descent from Heaven. Its pow’er is gone— it is nothing but a “vain glorious” boaster, indispensiblo only to a New York breakfast room. Since the election in Pennsylvania, the Herald is willing to forgive the political enemies of Frement, if they will repent and wear peas in their shoes for a week ; otherwise, a hemp en collar is to be their natural neck i loth, the first tree the place, and iknnott will write the obituaries. — Whew! One of the evil results of the acts of the \ igilance Committee as is be ing displayed even now in a very significant manner in San Francisco, i the engendering of a vitiated taste ior witnessing scenes of horror and creating a fdesire to sec the actual performance of unnatural and brutal scenes, in preference to those of any other character. We see advertised and commented on terms of praise, through the columns of journals pro fessing to a degree of elevated re finement, “a panorama of the scenes • which transpired during the organ ization of the Vigilance Committee.’ A panoramic view of the execution and death struggles of four unfortu natc wretches who wire deprived the right of an impartial trial b y jury, and deliberately hanged by cm organ ized mob ! And we ta&rn, too, that this horrible exhibition “nightly at “ tended by the beauty, elite and “ fashion” of San Francisco, that mothers take thoir •children thither, and explain to thorn the several scenes of woe as they arc brought to view, perhaps to teach the little creatures the modus operand! of hanging, lest perchance they should have such a task to perform as their fathers have hail before them. This is a sample of the “purification of the moral at mosphere” promised us by those self constituted judges, jurymen and ex ecutors of their own laws. This is one of “ the happy results ” vouch safed to California after the patriot ic, self-denying labors of the purify ers had been successfully accom plished. Public acts of violence and legal executions have ever had a de basing, demoralizing influence, and that the acts perpetrated during the “ reign of terror ” in San Francisco have tended to produce such a state of the public mind is proven by the success attending the exhibition of those disgusting pictures, and they in their turn create a desire to witness the re-enactment of such scenes of horror. A long time will intervene before the sad influences created by the acts of that body of misguided men shall pass away. Rumored Meeting oe the Governokrs ok the Southern States. —A despatch from Columbia, South Carolina, dated Octo ber 13, states that reports were current there that the Governors of the fifteen south ern States would meet at Raleigh, N. C., on the following day to consider what steps it will be necessary to take for the prote'ion of the rights of the Southern States, should Mr. Fremont he elected to the Presidency. Hoaxed —The Editor of the Cal. Ameri can lias been “deceived, likewise sucked in” by some one whose mare had given birth to a dead colt, which he stated was the off spring of a female mule. This isn’t the first “Mare’s nest,” that has been discovered by the General, and which has turned out a humbug. Douglass upon Political Parsons. —ln a late speech at the west the distinguished Illinois Senator said: “Instead of preaching what men need to hear—“ Christ and him crucified” —these hucksters of a political religion forget the fundamental precepts of their professed Master’s religion; forget Him and the mer ciful designs and charitable spirit of His mission, and amid lies, and vituperation and slander, hold up. not the cross, but “Dung lass and him damned.” (Cheers and laugh ter.) Is this harsh ? Let mo tell you.no politician, bred in the very school of bitter ness and lies, can “ speak so harshly or so falsely as the abolition preachers of the times. I have received from them from two thousand to twenty-five hundred sermons, filled with blasphemy, hypocrisy and black guardism, preached by infidel, mercenary ministers, against whom the accusation must be brought of perverting the Holy Sabbath and Christ’s Gospel to political ends. And, iu leaving this branch of the subject, let mo say, if you wish to preserve religion and your morals, and your conscience pure, and keep the cause of the gospel safe, shun these political preachers. When the Riblc and God are dethroned by these men, wc shall become in this land as France in ’l)3. Nor Disappointed. —The Sacramento Union says—“ Fillmore mm didn’t expect anything from the elections iu Pennsylvania Indiana and Ohio, and they have not been disappointed.” Ifthatisso; then the Fill more orators in California “lied like the devil.” tor every one of them proclaimed that Fillmore would carry those States. £#- The Assessor of I’lacer bounty says iu a report to the Snrveyur General, “It can be safely estimated that this county Las fur nished ad,000,000 of the gold product ot the past year.” A new locomotive on the Sacrameeto Valley Railroad recently made a trial trip, during which it ran at the rate of a mile a minute. Discover* or Dead Bodies Near Sac- ] R A ME NO.—The Sacramento Times says the remains of a deceased person were found lately near the Ranch of Mr. C. B. Cooley, commonly known as the Grape Tine Ranch, on the river about twelve miles below Sac ramento. They were discovered by two young men named Brines and Calhoun, on ground from which the Inks had recently been burnt by which means they had be come exposed to view. There was not a particle of Iksl* or even of clothing remain ing, but a parr of boots were on the feet, and alongside of the bones were found a double barrelled shot gun, powder-flask, jack-knife and twelve dollars and fifty-five cents in money. The money was in two different leather wallets. All appearances indicated that the bones had been laying there for two or three years. The ground is subject to overflow in the rainy season, anil has been a place of resort for'gunners in search of geese and ducks. It is probable that some one thus engaged has been accidentally drowned, and been hidden from view by the tules for a year or two, until the tires have exposed the ground again to the eyes ol the traveller. The same two persons found the remains of another person in the same vi cinity a few weeks ago. In this case there was no gun, nor any evidence frrni which the occupation of the person could be infer red. About four miles nearer Sacramento,a son of Mr. Huyck and a hired man made a similar discovery a few weeks ago. In this case seven dollars in money were found along with the r< mains. All these discover ies were made on ground subject to over flow, but more than usually exposed at this season of the year, and all bear the evidence of having been dead for several years. Two Fremont’s in the Field. —The general topics of interest, says the National Democrat, here have been for the last two weeks of a political character. The excite ment increases daily as the time approaches for the great contest in November ; but the chances for Fremont are growing “small by degrees and beautifully less.” He still re mains mum in reference to his creed, his friends declaring him to be a Protestant, while the Know-Nothings bring proof that he has always been a Catholic— Fremont himself refusing to deny or affirm cither as sertion. The great laugh of the town has been Grcely’s discovery of two Frcmonts, • resembling each other, about the same size, wearing their hair parted in the mid dle; both belonging to the army, both hav ing been stationed at Washington, and tother ono being the Catholic. Such a ridiculous discovery set the whole town in an uproar of “pleasurable excitement.” As ridiculous as it was, however, and giving evidence of such weakness, an investigation was entered into and the other Fremont soon turned up, who proved to be an Engineer on a North Carolina tailroad—a large fellow, dressed like other people, and a good Protestant. We received a conununication yes terday from some person who signs himself “A Contributor to the church fund” in which the writer objects to the expressed intention of the Trustees to defer the building of the long talked of Church until next spring, and suggests instead, that the matter should not rest where it is, but that steps should be ta ken to commence the building sooner than then. San Francisco Minstrels. — Humor says that this execellent band of performers in tend visiting Oroville shortly. We hope they will conclude to come, and will insure them a full house if they do so. Everybody likes good music, and is willing to pay for it, and the reputation of the gentlemen compo sing this baud have gained, is sutbeient to draw crowded houses. Fight at Spamshtown. —Wo learn that a fight occurred at the above place on Sunday night between an American and an Irishman wherein both parties were severely injured and one of them had a large peice bitten out of his chin. Nice, moral place, that Span ishtown! Reprehensible. —Several times,within a few days past, we have been startled by the cries of file from senseless, brawling, drunk en loafers who, if there is a law to which they are amenable for such nets, should be locked up a week or two and taught belter conduct. The Mountains. —We learn from Mr .Un derwood, who arrived here yesterday, from the American Valley, tiiat a good deal of rain and some snow had fallen at that place before he left ‘isSU The Boston Post has the following personal notice: “Mr. Hamlin, Governor elect of Maine, having been united in mar riage last week, is going to Pennsylvania this week to labor In the cause of disunion. In what will it end?” Steam on the Red Sea. —The iccroy of Egypt has determined to establish steam communication between various points on the shores of the Red Sea, and has chartered a steam navigation company, with a capital of ten millions dollars, of which the govern ment will furnish three millions. The en terprise will be under the direction of Mus- Upha Bey, the nephew of the Viceroy.
