For President, in 1864,
;Sabject to the Decision of the National Union
Codification of the Laws.
A friend and subscriber writes to us upon
is subject as follows : I’be present session of
r Legislature will be distinguished for the
of some of the most important acts
that body for many years. But of them alt
■ doubt whether any one needs so much care,
d yet with it is capable of doing so much
od as the proposition to codify the laws of
3 Slate of California. To do this work
roughly would be next in point of difficulty
the formation of a new constitution. But
e importance of it, if rightly accomplished.
u!d hardly be over estimated ; more than
If the frauds and injustice that occur, arise
im the proverbial uncertainty of the law,
ising from its ambiguities and the contradic
ry enactments of different acts. To be able
know clearly and at ooce what the law is,
ves expense, vexation and injustice to eli
te, and by simplifying the course of justice,
e* more to prevent injuries from being com
tted than would at first appear possible.
If we look through history, we shall find
at the codification of the laws of a State has
trays exercised a surprising iufloence upon
8 future condition of that State, by showing
tat the law really is and wherein it needs
teodment, and can be most easily and pro
rly amended with the least disturbance to
ose fundamental and constiiutional principles
licit constitute the life of the State.
The Homan laws of the Twelve Tables were
doubtcdly compiled from pre existing sonr
s put into a systematic form. The Institutes
inducts nod Code of Justinian, digesting the
bole of the Roman law, have been to all sub
quent ages a fountain of law of the utmost
nseqncnco. Most of our Stales have, from
no to time, digested their laws and found it
keep confusion in check, and suggest what
necessary to render the laws harmonious,
ear and concise.
That the laws of this Slate should be codi
td, seems to us a matter too clear to be cal
diu question, and were it wisely and well
>ne at the present time, it would seem as a
:w and most important additional source of
dightemneot to the whole Slate. At present
»ly a ew of the best lawyers of this State
re well versed in the whole system of laws of
ar State Courts. In Europe this life-time
ndy is quite unknown. But open up, codify
ad digest the whole system of our laws into a
armonions awl compact system; and what
lecode of Justinian has been to all European
itioos, Ibis would be, by the inherent power
f its own justice, to the people of this State.
Furloughed Soldiers and Copperheads.
We clip the following from the “editorial
urrespoudence" o( the Evening Journal, dated
unitary 10th ’64 : The Kail campaign having
nded with I Ik? crowning glory of Chattanooga
ud the winter having set in early and with
nusnal severity, it was doomed advisable by
he Government to permit a large numlier «l
be throe years men to visit their friends and
imilies This has proved a wise movement,
ccanse the presence of so many men fresh
ora the theatre of war has stimulated recruit
ig to such a degree that it is thought that
he now quota will ho made np without a re
orl to a dralt. It also is having a political
fleet of far greater significance. It is prucli
ally settling the next Presidential election,
ml rendering the success of the Union candi
ale a foregone conclusion. All, without ex
epliou, of the returning soldiers arc outspoken
ud emphatic in their detestation of Copper
ends and treason-sympathizing Democrats;
lid it was a gratifying spectacle to notice how
luioklv a soldier would ;deuce any individual
rho hazarded to criticise the action of the
government in respect to its war policy. The
dd veterans, almost to a man. arc radical im
nediatc abolitionists, and their opinions, deter
nincdly outspoken throughout the loyal States
usl before the selection of delegates to nomi
i»te a candidate for the Presidency, will result
n making the Union nominating convention
utenselv radical on the slavery question. Mark
his, that every loyal State which has not al
■eadv provided for receiving the vote of its
soldiers in the field, will do so where it is so
litualml in its legislative and executive de
partin'tits, that it can be accomplished or its
constitution will permit; and with those Stales
where this cannot lie effected, the soldiers will
he allowed to visit their homes at the Novem
her election, where the exigencies ofthc service
will permit, in case the result of the presiden
tial election iu those respective Stales isiu the
least doubtful. In all of the Union, during
this generation of soldiers, the present race of
lory Copperhead politicians is doomed to a dis
graceful obscurity. The patriot soldier will
expressa spirit ol generous forgiveness for the
rebel soldier whom he has conquered in manly
warfare, but for the sneaking Copperhead, too
cowardly to go inside of the rebel lines and
fight for the cause he advocates in the security j
of a Government he stealthily hopes to under
mine and d+'Slroy. he has no measure of con
tempt and scorn sufficiently severe.
A Sap Case,—The Aurora Daily Times,
mvalmu# a sad wreck of humanity in that
town. It says ; From our sanctum window'
Can be secti on* of those lost, abandoned wrecks
of humanity. He passce through the streets
of Aurora daily, ami excites attention only by
bis dirty, ragged dress and woebegone appear
ance But that man bat a lew years ago. iu
an i liter sir town of raitfoniia, had a goodly
share of money and properly, aud was living :
proudly, happily, iu the midst of his family
circle. The bright sunshine of that happy
home was soon shadowed over by a dark cloud.
The wife of hi# bosom the mother of his chil
dren. a young beautiful woman, forgetting ber
solemn marriage vows in the sight of Heaven,
forgetting ber duty as a wife and mother,
abaudeiud heme and husband. From that
hour began the downward career of the poor
wretch who now stands alone in the streets be
fore us. He grew dissipated, neglected his
busiue-s. aud in a very short time found him
self a ruined man. Such is the life history of
one who is seen every day in our streets. It is
said that he never sleeps at night. He has no
bed no home, and apparently no friends. How ;
he manages to sustain life we know cot. A
few years and his sorrowful pilgrimage will end
in the crave.
News of the Week.
The operations of tbe combined land and
naval forces against Mobile engage tbe atten
tion of the rebels at present, to th exclusion of
all minor operations. They appear to be as
tonished at the rapidity and daring of General
Sherman’s movement against that city. Rich
mood papers say that ‘ official dispatches to the
rebel War Department announce that Sherman
arrived at Quitman (Miss.), on tbe Mobile and
Ohio Railroad, on the 18th, without opposition,
bat he will not be allowed to take Mobile
without a desperate battle. His advance was
without comparison, the boldest movement of
the war. He has from twenty-five to thirty
thousand men, and tears np railroads and rail
road bridges as be moves along, evidently med
itating no step backwards.” Rebel dispatches
also say that four more gunboats bad joined
Farragnt's fleet at Grant's Pass.
Dispatches announce tbe arrival of six more
of tbe prisoners who lately escaped from Rich
mond, making fifty who are now safe. Tbe
Richmond papers say that forty eight were re
captured. leaving eleven still out.
Within a few weeks, the Secretary of the
Navy bag decided to add another fleet to tbe
National Navy. In compliance with instruc
tions, propositions have been made to construct
the new vessels entirely of iron. They are not
intended to participate in actual battle.
It is estimated that 2.0U0 refugees and de
serters have come within the Federal lines since
January 18tb. Several lady refngees, who had
arrived in Washington from Richmond and
Fredericksburg, report that the rebel authori
ties, within tbe last month, seized all the meat
in tbe Richmond market and forwarded it to
Longstreet’a army.
A letter from Hilton Head to the Times
says that operations in Florida are still going
on, and tbe permanent occupation of that State
may be set down as a fixed fact. It was re
ported that Bcanregard was on his way from
Savannah with a large force to oppose the
progress of the Federals toward the interior.
Through the efforts of Senator Couness,
Congress has passed a joint resolution author
izing the President to transfer seamen who mar
enlist in the army to the naval service. In
snpporting this measure, Conoess stated that
the Navy Department was ready to send a fleet
to tbe Pacific coast for its protection, but
wauled crews, the high bounties offered to
those who enter tbe military service having
operated against tbe navy. This measure, it is
bop tl, will remedy tbe evil.
The Enrollment Act bas passed both bouses
of Congress.
Gen. Scammon and staff, who were recently
captured on tbe Kanawha, bad arrived in
Richmond, and were to be incarcerated in
Libby Prison.
Lincoln and Johnson.— The Trinity Jour
nal, which, a few weeks since hoisted the name
of Renj. F. Duller for Vice President on
the ticket with Abraham Lincoln, has recon
sidered the matter, taken down Gen. Butler's
name, and in its place pul that of Andrew
Johnson. This is tbe fourth paper in central
and northern California which has placed at its
masthead the names of “Lincoln and Johnson.”
lu doing so, it copies a few lines from oar paper
calling upon that paper to “make it Lincoln
and Johnson,” and says : "Didn't give us quite
lime enough, friend. We have for some lime
been settling into the belief that what you
suggest would be nearest right, and this week
we, 100, ‘hurrah for Abe and Andy.’ ” In
closing an editorial on its course io placing
Johnson on the ticket, it speaks of that tried
and true Southern patriot and statesman as
follows :
In that allegiance which he acknowledged to
the Government of the United Slates he has
never faltered. With him the question of na
tionality overshadowed all others, and tbe
necessary measures which the Administration
have thought proper to make use of have re
ceived his candid approbation; unlike the
sycophantic Copperheads of the North, who
cry Union when they range themselves in
opposition to every measure of the Adminis
tratiou lending to that resnlt. Such a man is
worthy of every honor. The position which
we have named is not only duo to him, but to
the loyal men of the South, whose representative
lie is. History will 'ecord the sacrifices which
that class has made in behalf of their country;
let it not also record that their country was

ble to this ticket “show their bands,” that the
State Convention to nominate delegates to the
National Union Convention may know what
“the spirit of the press” is upon the subject.
We are of tbe deliberate opinion that a large
majority of those who have in view a particular
man as candidate for the Vice Uresidency are
for Andrew Johnson.
ThbScprkmf Coi bt —Tbe Supreme Conrt
of the United Slates consists of ten judges, to
wit ; Taney. Clifford. Nelson, Wayne. Catron,
Swayne, Davis. Miller, and Field. Tbe conn
try is divided into ten circuits, to each of which
is assigned one of these justices, who, in con
junction with tbe local District Judge, holds
the Circuit Court. It is proposed to increase
their number to thirteen by making three ad
ditional Circuits, on account of increased bn
sioess. The last'Congress added one. Judge
Field, of this State—increasing the Conrt two
within the last twenty five years. It ts quite
probable that the present Congress, before ad
looming, will make this increase.

Thk Union State Conventions of Maryland
and Indiana have pronounced in favor of Lin

Now Jersey Legislature have appointed a
Committee to draft a memorial to Abraham

The Legislature.
Senate.—An Act concerning the sale of
uosurveyed lands, an Act to amend an Act to
provide for the location and sale of the unsold
portion of the lands granted to the State for
school purposes, and an Act supplementary to
an Act in relation to soils for delinquent taxes,
were passed, on the 19th.
An Act to divert the sum of 84,000 from
the Library Fond to establish District Libra
ries was indefinitely postponed ; and the Senate
refused to concur in the House resolution to
print 5,000 copies of the patriotic resolutions,
on the 20tb.
Both branches of the Legislature adjourned
over, on the 20th, until Wednesday. 24th—to
celebrate Washington's birthday.
Upon reassembling, on the 24th, bills were
introduced in the Senate for a Nautical school
at San Francisco, and to tax mines on private
lands, and bills were passed granting right of
way to canal companies, to amend the Sabbath
law, and to allow Provost Marshals and U. S.
Revenue officers to carry concealed weapons.
Also, Smith’s bill to extend the time for build
ing a bridge across Feather river at Oroville.
In the Assembly, a bill was introduced
amending the militia law, and bills passed to
create the county of Alpine, and to provide for
adjourned sessions of District Courts.
In the Senate, on the 23th, the Committee
on Claims recommended the passage of the bill
to pay the old Indian war bonds and coupons-
Smith introduced a bill to pay the expenses
incurred in the Honey Lake border difficulty,
and another to amend Act concerning official
fees in Bntte. The fence bill, which came from
the bonse, was amended and passed.
In the Assembly several bills of no general
importance were passed.
Letter from Cbattanoooa. —We have been
permitted to read a letter written by Capt.
Sullivan, of the First Brigade, Ist Division of
the Fourteenth Army Corps, to his father, Mr.
David Sullivan, of this county, and dated
Chattanooga, Dec. 23d, 1563, giving a sketch
of Uosecrans’ operations from the battle of
Stone river until their conclusion at Chicamau
ga, and a brief account of Gen. Grant's subse
quent campaign. We make a few extracts :
We crossed the Tennessee river at Bridge
port, Alabama, then crossed Sand Mountain
and Pigeon Mountain, and at Dug Gap we over
hauled Bragg, routing him with heavy loss ; on
our side the loss was slight. About this time,
Bragg was reinforced by all the available force
of the Confederacy, getting a force of two corps
from the Virginia army nndcr Ixmgslrect. On
Sept. 19th, we came upon the whole force at
Chicamanga, Georgia, where we bad one of the
most desperate fights of the war. The rebels
outnumbered us at least three to one; and, af
ter three days hard fighting, we cut oar way
through them and got to Chattanooga. I will
tell you how we managed to avoid being cap
tured. At several different times, our Brigade
would charge the woods or any place where
the rebels made their appearance—and gener
ally there would be a Division of them together
—when of coarse they would be too strong for
us, "five to onethen we would have to break
and run back four or five hnndred yards, when,
we would form again and come up yelling like
devils, when the rebels, thinking we had been
reinforced, would give way and run; then we
would gobble a lot of them in and send them to
the rear, but toward the last, we got into such
close quarters that we would send them back
into their own lines, for, when we would make
a charge toward the east and rout them from
their position, we would have to turn right
about and charge a force who were coming up
in our rear. Our Brigade was the first in the
fight and the last out, and our loss was very
heavy; but I think that I fought over about
the hardest part of the field, and I am sure 1
saw three dead rebels to one white man.
As soon as we got into this place (Chatta
nooga), we began to fortify, and managed to
hold the rebels in check until we were reinforced
by the lllh and 12th Corps, under “Fighting
Joe" Hooker, and the loth Corps, from Vicks
burg, under Gen. .Sherman. At the same time,
Gen. Grant took command of our whole force
at this place. On the 23d of November, we
went again in search of the rebels; and. inside
of one week, we bad three battles, to wit ;
Lookout Mountain, Mission Ridge and Taylor’s
Uidge, in which wc routed the rebels completely,
capturing fifteen or twenty thousand prisoners,
and about one hnndred pieces of artillery. We
bad to take Lookout Mountain by storm. In
taking the mountain, our regiment fought about
all night; but hereafter I want them to to ex
cuse me from all nicht fighting, as it is very
unhealthy to be out late at night in this country.
Rebel Rams.— The stories of "refugees''
about work on the rebel iron clads having been
suspended, their armament sent to Charleston,
etc., etc., would readily lead one in (be least
acquainted with the rebels’ regard for truth to
expect about these days spasms of activity and
divers desperate raids by these rams from Jeffs
fold.— Bee.
Our friend Peleg Brown thinks they don't
like the Federal net's age well enough to
attempt many “spasms of activity" hereafter.
The last issue of the American Flag in
Sonora was “ran off" last Saturday. It will
1« published hereafter in San Francisco as a
daily and weekly. The subscription list of the
Flag is retained by its proprietor, while its
place at Sonora w ill be supplied by the Amer
lean Eagle, to be published by G. L. Sharrels,
late foreman of tbe Flag office. While we
hope the "Flag" may “ware" triumphantly, we
also wish that tbe “American Engle” may
"soar" extensively.
Presentation,— A leap year ball was given
in Marysville, on the evening of the 18tb inst..
by the German ladies, on which occasion a
handsome German national flag was presented
to the Turn Verein of that city.
The bill to remove the Capital of Nevada
Territory from Carson to Virginia City passed
the lower honsc of the Territorial legislature
by a vote of thirteen to eleven, but was killed
iu the Connell by a vote of six to four.
A Change.— The lone Chronicle will cease
to exist on the 3d of March, and on the 17th
the publication of a paper in Us stead, to be
called the Alpine Chronicle, will be commenced
at Marklceville, the connty seat of tbe new
county of Alpine.
Mirdkr.—Mary Smith, a prostitute, was
found in her kitchen, at San Fraucisco, on the
24tb, with her throat ent from ear to ear.
There were evidences of a terrible struggle
with a murderer. Tbe bouse was robbed. She
was about starting for Washoe, and had con
siderable money with her.
G. E. Upson writes fr mi Bannock City,
Idaho Territory, to tbe General Land Office,
that tbe highest vield in that vicinity has been
SSOO to tbe pan, and that tbe average yield is
ts to the pan. We suppose that the General
Land Office believes him.— Bet.
Probably Upson means that Si was the
—> r «cre "nanoing oot" of a week s work.
A tellgbam to San Francisco, onWcdnes-
Jay. from Now York, announces the arrest in
that city of T. W. Dark, A. A. Selover. and
Frederick Billings, on a charge of fraud in
connection with the sale of mines on the Mari
posa estate. This was a five millions dollar
Tut Bulletin says that President Lincoln,
in fixing the initial point of the 545.000 per
mile subsidy of the Pacific Railroad, has
"shoved the Sierras westward.” The Presi
dent has great faith—equal to Cushing Jeff
Davis or removing mountains,
Massachcsetts.— Recently published sta
tistics show that Massachusetts has not only
promptly responded to her full quota of troops,
but has nearly six thousand more men in the
field than has been demanded of her. Copper
head blowers should dry up their nonsense.
At "Drum Barracks” a few days since, says
the Mariposa Gazette, Col.O. M. Brown was
hung in effigy, and the troops under his com
mand are rejoiced at the piece of fan. On the
suit of clothes stuffed with straw was painted
in large letters "0. M. Brown, Traitor, Col. of
Ist Regiment Cavalry, C. V.” Evidently the
Colonel is not much admired.

Dr. Radway s Pills have granted me a new lease
of life. For fifteen years I have suffered with Dys
pepsia, Costiveness, Indigestion. I have taken a
cart-load of pills of different make, but the relief
afforded by their operation was at the cost of severe
suffering from Piles. If I stopped taking these one
week, the old difficulty would trouble me. I at last
struck a vein of gold, in Rad way’s Pills—the first
dose acted so differently from all other pills, that I
hoped for a cure—six boxes made a new man of
me ; I am completely cured. No straining, no pita,
no weakness followed their ose, I gained strength
with thHr use. I have not taken any physic for
over a year, and am as ragged, strong and hearty
as a bear. James W. Fosdice.
