The Democratic Sentiment
The toadying, disgusting recreants to principle,
who control the Lecompton press of California,
denounce Douglas as a Black Republican. A short
time since they avowed themselves the friends (4
the Illinois Senator, and called upon thore who
would sustain him to vote the Lecompton ticket.
The election is over now and the lying horde of
hypocrites—the“Fad*lah deens'*of Federal power—
are using their endeavors to defeat the Democracy
of ihe north-west, and turn them over a prey to
their sectional enemies The vile and disgusting
courtiers—recreants to principle and shameless li
bels upon political manhood. “By .Authority" at
the head of their columns may prevent them from
sinking beneath their own contempt, but cannot
shield them from the scorn their treachery deserves.
Regarding Douglas’ adhesion to Democratic princi
ples as causing the defeat of the Lecompton con
stitution, they wonld avenge themselves by his de
feat, though they destroyed the Democratic party.
It is some satisfaction to know that the course of
the lying and treacherous Lecompton press of Cali
fornia is not sustained by the press of other States.
They stand alone in their infamy—the base minions
of an ignoble vengeance.
But enough of the Lecompton press of California.
The following extracts from the leading Democratic
papers of the Union, will show how the Democracy
of the nation regard the issue. We give them for
purpose of >howing our readers that the national
sentiment everywhere is with Douglas, and opposed
to the Lecompton allies of Republicanism in Illi
nois. The following extract from that old and
staunch Democratic paper, the Richmond Enquirer
indicates the will of the Democracy of Old Virginia
on the contest in Illinois. The Enquirer is one of
the oldest Democratic papers in the United States,
having been established long before the conductors
of the Lecompton press were out of their swaddling
I clothes. Indeed the greater portion of those in
California have everl»een the determined opponents
:of Democratic principles. But to the Democratic
-entiment. The Richmond Enquirer says:
“We hold now. as we have from the beginning of
the content in Illinois, that Senator Douglas is do
ing more than any other northern man for the vin
dication of the constitutional rights of the South.
We prefer him, not only before a Black Republican
I candidate, but l**fore any other Democrat for the
position of Senator from Illinois. We fully endorse
his position with regard to the insufficiency of ex
isting Federal legislation for the protection* of the
I constitutional rights of the South,and we appreci
i ate very highly bis able efforts to impress this truth
! on the minds of the people.’’
j The Memphis, Tennessee, Appeal says of the
i contest in Illinois:
“It is a contest of vital importance to the Demo
! ''ratio party, for if that party should lose Pennsyl
vania and Illinois, it would in all probability be un
able to elect its candidate in the next Presidential
contest. It is a contest in which all national men
should ieel interested,”
The New Orleans Bee says:
“Witnessthe re kless, unjustifiable and unpar
donable assaults upon Douglas. Such moon struck
madness, such desperate attempts at political « n i
ride are almost inconceivable. The Democracy ate
not sufficiently environed with peril but thev must
wantonly court irreparable destruction. Suppose
I Douglas is defeated, what becomes of the Illinois
Democracy. aye. and of that immense mass of
Democrats in Indiana, Pennsylvania New Jersey
Ac., whothink with him I” ’ ’ " ’
The New Orleans True Delta, referring to Mr.
Douglas efforts in Illinois,says:
“Tlie principles enunciated by him in his almost
daily speeches to the people of that State, are suc h
as to form the political creed of the Dem erratic
This hostility begins to lie regarded as the off
spring of a personal vindictiveness, that is willing
to sacrifice the integiity of the Democratic party
and its hopes of future success, to the defeat and
humiliation of a great Democratic states. Among
the possibilities resulting from this most stratum
and unnatural wat upon the Little (liant is this,
that whether victorious or vanquished in tiie present
struggle, Ik must necessarily rise alcove adverse
circumstances which surround him, and fulfill ihe
speculations here and there uttered of ids being in
Dmn,either the candidate of the Democratic party
of the Union, or that branch of it which includes
the Western States—yet a few witless, bigoted, or
rec klessly malicious Democratic organs are doing
their best or worst—which is fortunately little to
elect the Repuhlirnn Lincoln over Douglas an ob
ject of obloquy both in the north ami the south. So
mm h malignity and so much stupidity, are rarely
example.! in the rnnals of politics. But such ma
lignity is rendered harmless by such stupidity; that
is some consolation.”
The Portsmouth (Va.) Transcript says:
We are very anxious to witness the defeat of Uc
puldbauism in Illinois, by honest means, for it is
impossible not to sec that Its triumph will exercise
no small iufiueme on northern public sentiment.
Bctwvn the most prominent of the aspirants Per the
vacant Senatorship, no true Democrat can hesitate
in choosing.
One effect of the overthrow of Douglas will be to
estrange the two branches of the Democracy in
Illinois, so that the restoration to harmony will lie
almost an impossibility. The disaffected, it may
reasonably he anticipated, will spread to other
States, and it Is by no means improbable that the
breach may become general enough to serionsly in
terfere with tlie chances of a successful campaign
against Republicanism in the next Presidential
The New Hampshire Patriot, a Democratic pa
per established by Isaac Hill, and a firm supporter
of Andrew Jackson, speaks as follows :
‘ The speeches of Jndjre Douglas, in his discussion
with Lincoln, have the old fashioned Democratic
ring about them which of yore characterized his
efforts. Lincoln is like flaming tow in his hands.
He mell>. dissolves, vanishes. The contract l>e
tween the speeches of the two men is so great, he
sinks out of sight. Even if his party sneceeeds in
f e ‘ ; !rin ? the next Legislature of Illinois, we do not
believe it will elect him a Senator. Entering the
canvass with Judge Douglas was felo de se. and the
Judge has only furnished the weapons to his hand
and perhaps driven him to use them/’
These maybe regarded as the National Demo
cratic sentiments of the country, and are in strange
contrast with the vindictive and false denunciations
of the Lecompton press of California, the three
principal ones of which are conducted by ex-Know
Nothings, who doubtless, remember the blows the
Illinois Senator administered their wig-wams in
days of yore. The Democratic party will yet re
main true to their principles, and refuse to be led
after strange gods by the jack o'-lantern lights of
The Placerville Route The Sacramento
I'rtltm thinks the petitions to reduce the time for
delivery of the mails iietween St. Joseph and i’lac
ervillc, ought to be circulated in all the northern
counties. The advocates of the Kirk imposition
route through Placcrviile should not think of doing
such a foolish act. The northern counties care
nothing for the mountain and desert toote through
Placerville. They have a much better route of
their own by Roney Lake. When the t r nion was
sustaining Kirk's official report iu opposition to
Honey Lake as the terminus of the wagon road, we
knew and told them that they were building up a
southern route and giving it precedence over ail
otheis. Then. Placerville route was decidlythe
best, notwithstanding an experience of ten years
had shown that its snows were impassible during
the winter months. Government knew it, and after
Kirk > performances, felt complied to locate the
principal route sonth of the wealth and business of
the State. If the Placerville route is merely a sec
ond or third fiddle to other routes, it will not be able
to play its part during the coming winter months.
We will sign a petition for a tri weekly mail to
Honey Lake, where it should liavc come in the first
place.and where it undoubtedly would have come,
had not Kirk's expedition shown the Salt Lake route
impracticable, thus frustrating the original design
Jf Congress. Send none of petitions to the north
ern counties, but pray to Kirk; and if he cannot
help you. go weep for the botch-work you have as
sisted to make of the overland mail routes, and the
injustice you have aided in bringing upon northern
and midd e California.
hasta. —The Shasta Republican says the busi
ne-s of their little town is reviving. It has been
voted "dead” by our neighbors very frequently, bat
in spite of all these grave and chilling edicts, it

The Yellow Scourge.
The bright and sunny South is again draped in
mourning, and the wail of woe, accompanied by
thegnant form cf want, again arises in the fair
cities of many of the routhern States. Every arri -
val by overland mails and ocean lines, brings ac
counts of the fearful ravages of the Yellow Fever.
Fearful numbers are daily borne to the final resting
place of the dead, and the frequent death-rattle ap
pals the stoutest hearts. The utmost efforts of the
benevolent societies fail to alleviate the calls of hu
manity. Many are discharged from the hospitals
cured of the maladj'. but in destitute circumstances.
Some of these have been sent to their friends in
other States, but a circular from the Chairman of
one of the relief committees, states that despite the
utmost efforts of these charitable associations many
must perish from destitution. Cast forth without
money or friends, and nnuble to help themselves,
they meet a worse fate than death by the epidemic.
This is indeed an appalling picture, and calculated
to excite feelings of commisseration in every benev
olent heart.
What is worse than all, however, it is stated that
the Medical Faculty seem to have lost all faith in
any regular inode of treatment, and thus are really
puzzled to know what to do. The terrible scourge
still seems to be a mystery. It comes unbidden
and unexpected, runs its awful course, bears away
its hundreds or thousands of victims, and then dis.
appears, sometimes for one, and sometimes for five
years. The Mobile Tribune, in the course of a
careful’y prepared article upon the subject, says
that it long since came to the conclusion, that the
origin, cause and mode of the propogation of yel
low fever are just as doubtful and uncertain as ever.
It says:
“All that is yet known of it, wit i any certainty,
is that it is a mystery yet unsolved. It prevails
alike in wet weather and dry—among the swamps
and smells and sinks and cess-pools of New Orleans,
and upon the pure sands and sweet sea-breezes of
Vera Cruz, or Pensacola, or Key West. No degree
of cleanliness—no burning of tar nor firing of can
non can avert it when it is destined to come, and all
possible combinations of the miasma of swamps and
stagnant pools and the exhalations of foul streets
fail to induce it when it is the Divine will that it
should not come. The streets of Norfolk were
never in better condition than in the terrible sum
mer of iKio; and Mobile is always more cleanly
I than usual, when it is visited by this disea-e,be
cause we ure always forewarned to prepare for it by
its previous appearance in New Orleans. 5 ’
It is probable that the October frosts have, ere
this, arrested the ravages of the fever.
A Haro Cask—On Wednesday, Mr. Hammel,
the undertaker was called to take charge of the
body of a man who had died on the premises of Dr
Gilbert. Hammel found the body in such a coudi.
tion and so unusually disposed (it being on the floor
resting on its face, with the arms and 'egs doubled
underneath) that he determined to give informa'
t ion to the Coroner, before proceeding to bury it’
He accordingly informed Justice Berry (acting Cor
oner) of the matter, and a jury was forthwith sum
moned to investigate the case. After hearing the
evidence of such witnesses as were brought before
them, the jury agreed upon the verdict which ap
pears below, bat one of the number being subse
quently shown to be a foreigner, the whole proce
dure was set aside as a nulity. We deem it proper
however, to give the verdict as agreed upon bythe
five jurors whose names attend it. It reads as for
lows :
tVe, the jury in this case, find that the deceased,
Edward Harris, died in the office of Dr. Gilbert on
the 27th day of Oct. at 2 o’clock A. M„ from an at
lack of the erysipelas, and that he was a native of
the State of Tennessee. We also take this opportu
nity of censuring the conduct of the County Phv
sician in discharging the above named deceased
from the County Hospital, as an act that under the
circumstances, we think was barbarous and inhu
man- P. Maori be,

The oarae of the juror, whose incompetency de
clared post facto, nulitied the above as a legal ver
dict, is E. King,blacksmith, Bird street, who should
either become naturalized or declare ids inability
to exercise the rights and functions of an American
citizen before the commencement of proceedings
in which if he acts a part they will only amount to
labor lost.
Not being present at the Coroner's inquest, we
are unable to give the testimony elicited thereat,
and leave our readers to form their own conclusions
from the above verdict.
The Camels Loose.— The Southern Vineyard
states that, during the storm of October 2nd, which
at the Teion was very violent, the U. S. Camels at
the Banc-ho of S. A. Bishop strayed away. Parties
were out in search of them as soon as their leave
taking was discovered. They did not like the
storms of the Teion, which are not celebrated for
their mildness, they had statted overland for Asia.
Nine of them have been recovered. Six are still
missing. It is not improbable that the Indians may
indulge in a dinner of Camel’s meat, or that they
may be claimed by some enterprising stock grower,
unless Uncle Sam’s brand is upon them.
Petty Larceny at Sea—A Serious Sort of
Petty Larceny. —The Sun Francisco nnllctin
states that a complaint has been tiled before U. S.
Commissioner McAllister, to the effect that Clark
second Mate of the bark Myrtle, lately arrived from
Bangkok, Siam, had stolen s■"» and a lot of papers
from a seaman named Robert Edwards, during the
voyage and within the admiralty and maritime ju
risdiction of the United States. If the Commis
sioner finds sufficient cause, he will bind the ac.
cased over, who will then have to be tried in the
United States District or Circuit Court, when he
will have to be tried by a jury. The punishment of
petty laroen\- under the U. S. Jurisdiction, is a fine
not exceeding f 1,000, or imprisonment in the State
prison not exceeding one year.
The Assessorsiiip. —On Wednesday list, a writ
of quo irarranto was served on Mr. D. A. Brown
onr County Assessor Elect, by Mr. David Weaver
the incumbent of that office for the past year. Here
tofore our Assessors have been elected yearly, and
the right for them to In !d their offices for a longer
term than one year, has singularly enough never be
fore been brought in question. Mr. Weaver believes
himself entitled to the office fora year longer, hence
the issuance of the said writ. Now that this ques
tion has been mooted, and the parties have joined
issue—as we believe they have—we trust for the
sake of the county the case will be taken to the
Supreme Court, that we may know, definitely, how
often we must elect our Assessors and
length of time.
Difference or Opinion The Marysville Ex
press, edited by an ex-Whig, ex Know Nothing Le
comptonite,speaks of Senator Douglas as follows:
"Mr. Douglas, despairing of the ability of the
Democratic fparty to sustain him upon the great
principles of his own Kansas Xebraskaact, is en
dearing to impress upon the dominant partv the
Repnblicen party—that he is a better republican
than his opponent, or Seward, or Chase, or any of
the Republican leaders."
The Richmond Enquirer says that Senator Doug
las is doing more than any other man “for the pro
tection of the constitutional rights of the South,"
ami prefers him -before any other Democrat for the
position of Senator from Illinois,” Of course, this
difference of opinion brands- the Editor of the Uich
m°nd Enquirer as an unmitigated liar and a Black
Republican ass. and the party is well rid of such a
dirty and contemptible sheet !

The present Postage Law.
Tbe people of California should rise as one man
and demand an alteration in the law concerning
postage. As it now stands. It is the most inequal
and partial in its workings of any law spread upon
the journals of Congress. Because we are further
removed from the seat of Government and sharing
least in the favors and benefits of the Government,
is not a good reason why we should be taxed more
than doubly what the inhabitants of other States
are taxed toward tbe support of the postal Depart
ment. Ten cents per letter is too much for any of
us to pay ; we all were taxed at that rate but a few
months ago, but now, some of us can send our let
ters as cheaply as the citizens of other States can
correspond with each other, —but a part of us can
not. Those of ns who happen to have friends in
the New England States, or at other points in the
Union, three thousand miles hence, most pay the
old price. The overland mail, is, therefore pecun
iarily beneficial to but a portion us. It should be
made to work for all alike, and for one price. Laws
should, and must be, to be just, general, in their
nature and workings, and the postal law should be
made conformable to this rule.

The Indian women and children were all taken

Labor at a Premium. —We learn from a returned
Frazerite, that three men who gave away good half
ounce divings on Butte Creek for the purpose of
going to Frazer river, wore, at last accounts, at
work for the Hudson Bay Compaii3’ opening a road
up Frazer. They gave twenty-five dollars for the
privilege of working on the road, wi-h the under
! standing that, if they persevered in the good work
| unto the completion of the trail, they were to re
ceive hack their twenty-five dollars; but if fhey
j failed to assist in completing the woik, they were
| to have nothing but the grub they had eaten, and
|to forfeit the sum they had advanced. If that is
anything more than “grub” diggings, we don’t
know it. Should they return to California after
their road fever subsides, the Legislature should ex
empt them from road tax hereafter. But what
magnificent diggings there must be, when men
adopt snch means to work their way into the mines?

their stinking paper-covered cigars, and every cus

by a blow. Mr. B. shot one of the Indians in the
neck, the ball pa-sing out through his face, when
the assailants tied.
Apparently Obstinate—Notwithstanding the
Lecompton press have denounced Douglas as a
Black Republican, since the election, the Amador
Sentinel still defends him. That paper was origi
nally anti-Lecompton, but somehow “slumped**
through previous to the election. It does not soon
consent to denounce Douglas, LecomptonUm will
>oon consign it the “Lower Rauchareu.”
The Guano War.—There is a prospect of war
between the “Pacific Guano Company,” and some
squatters who have jumped their claim. The com
pany have despatched a ship with well-drilled men,
armed with Sharpe’s rifles, Colt’s revolver and
howitzers, to intercept the .-qnatters, It is expect
ed they will make the guano fly when they over- ,
haul the offensive vessel.
j The Difference. —The Republican party de
; mands that there .shall be “no more slave States.* 7
The Lecomptonites demand that Congress shall
: pass a•• ve code for all the territories.' 7
The National Democracy ‘‘recognize the right of
■ *hc people of all the Territories —including Kansas
; and Nebraska—to regnl.ite their domestic institu
tiona in their own way—subject only to the Consti
; t itionof the United States.
Chinese Sugar Cane.— The Los Angelos Vine-
I yard mentions some Chinese sugar cane, grown by
: Mr. Gibson, of El Monte, thirteen feet in length,
and the three lower Joints, after stripping off the
leaves, mea-ured respectively, four and a quarter,
1 for and a half, and four and three quarter Inches in
■ circumferences.
Singular Case of Drowning.— The Salem (Ore
gon) Standard mentions a singular case of drown
ing that occurred at Palmer's Creek, on the 29th of
September. A family named Thomas, on their
way from California to Oregon, were encamped on
the creek. Mrs.T. laid down her babe and went
toward the creek, where she was subsequently
found drowned in eight inches of water. It was
supposed that she had fallen in a fit.
Accident at Yankee Hill. — A letter from Mr.
Vivcn of \ arkee Hill inform-* that a man named
Divid White while chopping w;*od at the Hhi, was
so an fort a u ate as to -trike hi- axe entirely tL. -jh
his foot, it Ir on the toes to the instep and
-ovc through the sole of the foot. The ugly cut ;
was dressed and the wounded man is comfortable.
Arrival of the Central Overland Mail.
We condense the following report of news by the
last Salt Lake Mail from the columns of the Sac
ramento Union :
The bridge at Brockliss’ being broken the mails
had to be sent on ahead by a horseman, who being
thrown from his animal, was obliged to foot it»
hence a detention of several hours.
All was quiet at Salt Lake City.
The U. S. District Court. Judge Sinclair, had met
but adjourned in consequence of the ill health of
the District Attorney.
The Mormons held a third animal Fair on the 4th.
It was successful.
It is said that the Mormons intend applying for
admission into the Union at tbe next session of Con
Two Mormon women having been violated by In
dians. Col. Johnston sent a detachment of dragoons
to arrest the offenders. The Indians resisted and
one of them was killed and ten taken prisoners.
All the mules which were stolen from Mayfield in
August last have been recovered. Some of the
Bannoc tribe of Indians arc thought to be the
The troops at Camp Floyd, were generally
( healthy. Lieut. W. P. Sanders had been very ill,
but was recovering.
Senator Broderick and Company were met or
Goo«e Creek. 250 miles from Salt Lake. Mr. Brod
erick’s health still continued poor.
An Indian’s Idea of a Nuisance.— The Digger
Indians of California are not very’ backward in ex
pressing their contempt for John Chinaman. An
Indian was lately convicted of the murder of a
Chinaman in Amador county*, and asked the inter
preter why it was that the white people interfered
with him in the matter, and stating, according to
the Sentinel, that the Chinaman was of no account
whatever, and he thought he was doing the country
‘•some service,” in ridding it of one nuisance.
Reduction of Time on the Salt Lake Route.
Petitions are being circulated in Sacramento and
elsewhere, asking Cangress to reduce the time for
the delivery of mails on the Salt Lake route, and
increase the service to a tri-weekly mail. This all
: very proper, and Congress ought to grant the rea
i sonablo prayer of the petitioners. The proper way
i to reduce the time for the delivery of the mails be
tween Salt Lake and Sacramento, is to adopt the
Honey Lake route.
Immigration.— The Los Angelos Star learns that
a very large immigration from the South-western
States is on the road to California, and anticipates
an addition to the population of that portion of the
State greater than that for several years together.
Several parties had recently arrived in that county
from lowa. Missouri and Texas. They arrived in
excellent health, not having experienced the slight
est inconvenience, the stations *of the Overland
Mail Company affording them resting points at
convenient distances.
A’ t Dead Yet.—AVe observe in looking over
the papers that the inimitable John Spotter is in
| Downieville. It is a two to one bet that John's
j posters announce the astounding and gratifying
fact, that he has under his management, “the best
I stock company in the State and it is a similarly
I safe wager to double the amount, that both he and
the world renowned and talented corps whose cash
ier he is, arc all dead broke, and in “soak their
Lucky Shot.—John Minear, a former resident
of Sonora, but now sojourning in the mountains,
one day last week shot a grizzly—the second one
by the way, he had killed during the week—which
rolled down the mountain some distance, lodging
against a ledge of quartz rock. While engaged In
skinning the animal his attention was attracted to
some broken pieces of the rock containing gold. On
further examination along the ledge, by knocking
off the moss, he was made aware that he had found
a lead of astoni-hing richness, which he at once
took possession of. Some specimens from the claim
we have seen—taken from the surface, and gold is
visible in profusion. This is in the neighborhood
of the Bannister claim and on the famous “Buchan
an” lead. -Sonora Democrat.
Auricular.—The Editor of the Stockton Weekly
Democrat was recently the fortunate possessor of
ten ears. Now he has but nine. Eight-tenths of
the former number, however, belonged to a corn
stalk hanging in his office. Some per son stole one
of the ears from the stalk, doubtless desiring some
of the prolific seed. The rascal ought to be sent to
the Ear Infirmary at San Quentin.
New York Democracy.—There is at present no
split in the ranks of the New York Democracy, al
the AVrrs, plethoric with Federal patronage, is en
deavoring to create a schism. It says the Demo
cratic State Convention “was controlled in the in
terest and for the benefit of Stephen A. Douglas and
his fellow conspirators.”
Fiue Engine for Yreka.—The corporate au
thorities of Yreka, sent to New York for a Fire
Engine, and it was recently landed at Red Bluffs.
Its transportation thence to Yreka cost them five
hundred dollars. Its entire cost will be less than
one-hnndreth part of the loss sustained by the late
fire in Oroville.
Telegrammatical.—The Rev. Mr. Griggs of New
York, reached the jumping off place of grandilo
quence, when he “shot his mouth off” thuswise : j
“When the sulphuric acid of true repentance cor- j
rodes the contaminating zinc of innate depravity
and actual sinfulness, the fervent electric force of
prayerful entreaty,” etc. Again, “Go to the tele
graphic office of the atoneing cross, and touch the
wire of penitential nature.”
Tough Cuss.—A Sacramento drayman named
John Carr, had a piece of marble, weighing two
tons and a half fall on one of his legs, a day or
two ago. He was held fast by the rock, until some
busybodys near by, after prying around t<> see what
was the matter, turned the marble over and reveal
ed the fact that John’s shin was only “barked”
nothing more.
A Hard Hit—The Amador Ledger plants the
1 following sockdollager under the left ear of Tuol
umne LecimptonDm:
“TheCehimbia Weekly News, a rabid Lecompton
paper, in one of its political tirades against those of
the Democracy who still adhere to their principles,
•Wecan inform our friends abroad, that the De
mocracy of old Tuolumne were never so united as
at this time, and we feel able to thrash the enemy
every day if it was necessary, If our friends in the
different sections of the State will work with us.
shoulder to shoulder, the cause of pariotism and
genuine Republicanism will ever triumph in Cali
fornia over sedition and higher law humbagism.”
Wc will admit that Tnolsmne county is in the
hands of the Lecomptonites . beyond redemption;
and as one of the effects of their patriotism and gen
uine Republicanism, we give another cutting from
the same paper:
•‘But.seriously, the corruption that has existed in
••high places" in Tuolumne county for the past
eight or nine years has gone beyond endurance-
The present grand jury is the ablest one that has
r ‘var been known in the county. They are business
men—men of energy and peraeverence, and of
known integrity. If former grand juries had ex
hibited one-half of the interest for the welfare of the
con ty which they have done, we would not now be
gr »anmg beneath the weight of such enormous tax
ation, and the county debt would not foot up as it
does now, in almost the round sura of one hundred
and fifty thousand dollars."
Surely if the above is the effects of Lecomptonisra
it i* a warning to other parts of the State; for it is
hinted at in another part of the same article "that
the grand jury had indicted every officer of the
county, from the Sheriff down to Constable/’ If
The advice of the News is followed, the Lecompton
ite.-of other sections of the Suite raav find them
selves working “shoulder ta shoulder’ with their
Tuolumne brethren, if not in the cause of patriot
ism. at least for the good of the State, at the States

Assessor's Report.
Assessor's Ollloc, )
Oroville, 0ct.20,1858. f
To the Honorable , H. A. Higley, Surveyor General
of Califot'nia,
Sir: As per requirements of the statute, I here
by submit to you my report for the year 1858. It is
not as complete as I should like it to have been,
owing to the utter impossibility of obtaining the
information sought for from the inhabitants of the
countv ; that, in a great many instances, lieing of
the opinion that the questions asked relate solely to
their private business, consequently of no interest
to the public ; and at other times that it is the
method adopted by the Assessor to aproxiinatc to
the value ot their property, for which reason their
answers are generally very unsatisfactory.
The number of acres of land assessed is 250,313,
of which 192,442 acres is claimed under Spanish
grants’, and, as in other portions of the State, are
dotted over with claims of 160 acres, which they,
the claimants, eventually hope to hold. How much
grounds for such a hope, there is, I know not ; but
1 do know, that this unsettled state of things is a
great disadvantage to the prosperity of the county,
for were these (seemingly never-to-be settled) land
cases decided, one way or the other, instead ot the
eight by ten cabins that we now find upon these
small claims, we would find substantial improve
ments and other evidence of advancement in what
is generally conceded to be the great source of
wealth of the State—the Agricultural interest.
About one-half of the county is well timbered,
comprising all the varieties usually found in the
mountains of California.
In the estimate of the product of the county ac
companying this it must of necessity refer to the
products of the year 1857, as but a very small por
tion of the county is assessed after harvest, (at
which time the statistics are procured,) and that
portion principally the mining region. lam satis
fied that the crop of 1858 exceeds that of 1857 fifty
per cent.
The quantity of honey produced is not known,
but of necessity be small, as there are but two
swarms of bees in the county, one of which is in the
mountains, the other in the valley, and their pros
perity is but another evidence that our State is well
adapted t<» their access and profit.
You wil. .1 the number of Apple and Peach
trees repoi; i il : ytar much smaller than lust,
from the fact that bearing trees are only report d,
(the number in nurseries not known) the number
given are in a thrifty condition, and the yield this
year is large.
In regard to the county boundary I would refer
you to the report of my predecessor, the evils corn
: plained of by him, exist, and the suggestions there
in contained as to their remedy, should meet with
the favorable consideration of our law makers.

Assessor of Butte Co.
Report of the Grand Jury.
To the Honorable Court of Sessions for the Conn
ty of Butte and State of California :
The Gr°nd Jury empanneled for the October
term <f t Honorable Court have given vonr
charge matiin- <’i liberation ; and would repeat that
they have had before them for their investigation
one case for murder, four for grand larceny, one for
assault with deadly weapon with intent to kill, one
for malicious mischief, and one for mayhem ; and
that they have found true bills in the following cases
viz : murder, one, grand larceny, two, assault with
deadly weapon with intent to kill, one. malicious
mischief one. mayhem one. and have ignored two
cases for grain! larceny. We have also visited the
county jail, which presents a clean and orderly ap
pearance, and find within its cells ten prisoners who
nil, with one exception, speak well of the treatment
received from the several officers of the prison, and
of the quantity and quality of their food ; and
should say that they are as comfortably situated
as the c;rcam.s*ances of their case will allow. We
would congratulate the citizens of our county upon
the apparent decrease of crime as manifested by the
limited number of cases before this Board of Jurors,
and the decreased number of commitments to the
county jail during the pa-t quarter, together with
the limited number of prisoners now confined,
whose nativity is Ireland six and China four.
H e find by investigation and actual knowledge
that there are parties doing business without li
cense in the following places, viz : Oroville, Forbes*
town, Bangor, Jackass Flat, Hansonville, Peavine,
Pence’s Ranch, Diamondvlle, Knterprisc, Little
Kim-shew. Inskip, Garden Ranch, Virginia Mills,
White Rock, Strawberry Valley, Mineral Slide.
Morris Ravine, and Long's Bar, in violation ol the
laws of our State, assuming to themselves a privi
lege not guarantied to the law-abiding citizen, con
sequently in a pecuniary point, reaping a decided
advantage ; and we have presented the several par
ties and trust that the intention of the law as well
a - the letter may be fully carried out and thereby
place all upon equal ground. In relation to gaming
we are under the impression that in the precincts
of the several members of this board the gaming law
is respected and that there are no grounds for com
plaint, and that during our session we have no
knowledge or have heard any complaint that the
law is not equally respected at the countv seat, and
would congratulate the citizens upon the improved
state of affairs ; and what we say of gaming will
equally apply to houses of ill fame.
• financial affair- of our county, heretofore con
sidered within our province, bat of late doubts hav
ing arisen as to the correctness of that considera
tion, and after the thorough investigation of the ac
counts of the officials of the county by the honora
ble board of Jurors that were impanneled in July
last, ye consider it unnecessary to have any further
e * a ® lQ 3tion by this body, leaving the matter with
the Honorable Board of Supervisors whose ability
the citizens of the county have the utmost confi
The affairs of the County Hospital we leave in the
same able hands, believing that their good sense

sistent with the welfare of oar unfortunate broth
ers who by the dispensation of divine Provi
deacc may be thrown upon its tender mercies. All
of which is reipectfuiiy submitted.
