THE UNION RECORD. 1
OEOVILUE, SATURDAY. MARCH 17. | The President on Strategy. —ln a letter to Governor Sharkey, of Mississippi, written hist August, President Johnson said ; “If yon could extend the elective franchise to all persons of color who can read the Con dilation and write their names, and to all persons of color who own real estate valned at not less than 8250 and pay taxes thereon, you would completely disarm the adversary, and set as example that other States will follow.” “Disarming the adversary” and arming the Southern militia seem to have been schemes contemplated at an early period by our acct dental Chief Magistrate. The ‘ adversary” be then dreaded as dangerous to the hasty admis ■ion of impenitent rebels to Congress and all their former privileges in the Union, is the same "adversary” that broke the rebel back bone—and its mission will not be fulfilled until the spirit that animated the rebellion disappears. This “adversary” is the loyal people. Canada and the Fenians.— The Canadians have, for the second time, been terribly scared by a vision of twenty fire thousand Fenians, commanded by General Sweeny, being ready to march upon Canada. Rumors of immense supplies for the Fenian army being stored at Burlington, Ogdensborg, Plattsburg, Sandusky and other points on the border, bare added to their fright, and a call fur volunteers has been responded to in a manner that proves that real danger is apprehended. Secretary Seward officially assures the British Minister that any attempt of the Fenians to invade Canada or violate the neutrality laws will be promptly punished. Sir Frederick Bruce replies: "I have no apprehensions of any trouble, believing the movement a scheme to enrich certain leaders at the expense of a few dupes, who may get themselves into difficulty by too much faith in loud professions.” W HAT WILL BECOME OK THE CROPS ? The Bee, in an article on the condition ol the State, remarks : “Agriculture is likely to be carried to excess, and must seek foreign customers. A large exportation of breadstuff, has for some time been going on to Australia, which keeps up wheat and (lour, and may possibly bold them up through the coming season ; hut hay, barley, and other feed, must necessarily go down. The Oregon papers say their last year's stock of wheat is still on hand, and they must furnish Idahoand Montana. We have Nevada and Colorado, but the first is decreasing its consumption, and trade with the second will be contested by the Mormons.” The Bee might have added that Northern California wiil contest the Idaho and Montana trade, with a good prospect at the start of sharing at least equally with Oregon, as this section has the advantage of the best and shortest route from the termini of water and railroad routes. The Idaho and Montana market will to a certain extent render our agricultural districts indc pendent of San Francisco speculators. “No Traitors in the South !”—This declaration is attributed to Secretary Seward. The Sacramento Bee elucidates the idea as follows : “Treason, mind you, is a crime, and must surely be punished ; but it would appear that the wrong parties have been arrested—a kind of Wclls-McDonald affair—a singular case of mistaken identity. General Grant, it is now seen, was on the wrong line after all; and, instead of capturing Lee, and Johnson, and Davis, ought to have arrested Sumner, and TVade, and Tbaddeus Stevens. Fortunately, it is not too late to remedy the evil, and traitors will doubtless yet be punished. “No traitors iu the South 1” The rebellion was a mere pretext to show the world how well we under stood the game of war.” New York.— The New York Legislature has adopted resolutions, by a strict Union party vote, declaring that Congress has full power to determine the terms of readmission of the Southeru States, and to fix the qualifi cations of members ; and that, whatever differ ences may exist between the Executive and the Legislature upon the measures necessary to attain the great cuds which peace should yield, there should not be such diversity, either on general results, or methods of attaining the same, as should produce hostility or sever political relations. Union \ ictorv in New Hampshire. —The election iu New Hampshire, March 13ib, resulted in the triumph of the Union ticket by 5,000 majority. Smith (Union) is elected Governor; all five Councilman, nine of the twelve Senators, and 100 majority iu the House, are Union. Good far the old Grauite State. Pennsylvania.— The Pennsylvania Union State Convention, or the bth inst., nominated John \\ . Geary for Governor, and adopted resolutions approving the action of Congress, and appealing to President Johnson to stand firmly by the side and repose upon the support of the loyal masses. Not Admitted. — The bill for the admission of Colorado into the Union was rejected iu the L nited Slates Senate by a vote of aves 14. r.ocs 21. Doolittle urged against it that the population was not over 25,000, and was actually decreasing. Diamonds in Owyhee.— The Dalles Moun taineer says that they dig diamonds in Owyhee by colonizing ants on the diamond fields. The industrious creatures frequently bring diamonds to the surface, when the honest and industrious miner has nothing to do but to pick them up. Mai v Indicted. —The United States Grand Jury have presented a true bill of indictment against young Macy, the absconding clerk ot Sub-Treasurer Cuecseman. Macy is said to be in Mexico. Moses I —lt is now considered more iikeiv that Jotuisou will be “Moses” to the rebels than to the freedmen. His promises to the latter were only meant as a bint to them to “emigrate.” McCarthy, of the San Francisco Flag, still refuses to purge himself ot his contempt for the Senate, and evidently considers that it pays to be a “martyr.” The Senate don’t think so. Arrangements are about tor begin for laving the Atlantic Telegraph cable, during the Summer. The Great Eastern will carry the : new cable—a bad omen for success. Southern Men Contrasted. There is some compensation for the lack of trne patriotism among the “Democrats” in tbe North, where the Union part; has an over whelming majority, in the noble position of Southern men in various portions of the South. Few in numbers, they are the leaven that must save tbe Southern loaf (not to mention the fishes), if tbe South is to be saved from further evils. lint when a United States Senator from Kentucky— a State that, at the beginning of the rebellion, assumed to be neutral, and only escaped tbe horrors ot war that desolated the Old Dominion by the prompt action of the truly loyal people of the State iu placing it unmistakably in opposition to secession—after the terrible ordeal of one rebellion is passed, talks as Garrett Davis, Senator from Kentucky, is reported to have talked iu a recent speech in reference to the Congress of the United States, we may well doubt the assertion that the conquered rebels are ready to return to tbe Uoion, and faithfully abide by the results of tbe war in their respective States. Davis is reported to have said : “We might see in this laud two bodies, one composed of Southern Representatives and Senators, and Democrats and Conservative members from the North; and the other of Republican members. Alone, each of these bodies would claim to be Congress, and tbe President would be obliged to recognize one or tbe other. As the former party would be in a majority, why would not the President recog nize them as the lawful aud legitimate Congress of the United States? Mr. Davis said he believed Jackson would do this, and hoped that President Johnson would unite Southern mem bert elect to this city [Washington], and, uniting with the men he had designated, recognize them as Congress.” In agreeable contrast to this we place the noble utterances of John B. llender3on, United States Senator from Missouri, who rebukes the statesmen from the “Confederate X Roads in the Stale of Kentucky,” in the following terms: “I sincerely hope, lor the good of the country, that the distinguished Senator [Mr. Guthrie] may see fit to take back what he said a few moments ago. Smarting under a remark from my friend from Indiana, I think he has suffered himself to make a remark that he him self must be sorry for. Sir, we have had enough of disunion. I hope that no Senator in tbe future will rise upon this floor and talk, under any circumstances whatever, of another war of rebellion agaiust the constituted author ities of this country. My God! are we again to pass through the scenes of blood through which we have passed for the last four years? Are we to have this war repeated? No Freedmen’s Bureau bill, no bill for the pro tection of the rights of anybody, shall ever drive me to dream of such a thing.” Senator Henderson says, iu reference to the freedmen : “I live in a Stale that was a slave holding State until last January a year ago. I have been a slaveholder all my life until the day when the ordinance of emancipation was passed in my State. I advocated it, and have advocated emancipation for tbe la.-t lour years, at least since this war commenced. Do you want to know how to protect the freedmen of the Southern States ?’ This question he answers as follows: “1 know that in the great State of Missouri we have 150,000 negroes, while there is not a former non slavehoiding State iu the Union that has, perhaps, one half of that number, and I say (or my constituents that 1 will agree to take negro suflmge. Let other Senators from the Northern and Southern Slates come np to the same thing, and then we can have peace. I hen you may repeal your Freedmeu’s Bureau Bill. 'A by ? The freedman will have the best protection in the world; he will have entire protection, because those canvassers for public lavor who go before the people will be bound to go before the negro, and they will find iu tbe negro ten thousand merits that they never found before.” The advocacy of negro suffrage by Senator Henderson, on tbe ground that it will ensure the peace of the country, and his denunciation of threats of disunion, taken together, form a wondeifu! contrast to the declarations of par doned rebels and their apologists at the North. If men at the South holding these views were encouraged and assisted by the President, instead ot the Yankee-hating, Union-despising rebels, the work of reconstruction would be comparatively easy. Tins Cattle Plague. —Official reports iu Kngland show that vaccination has proved a certain safeguard to ca t e, against tbe plague which has raged so tearfully iu the British Islands. The disease continues because this remedy is practiced only by the few. Would it not be well for agricultural societies in tbe d fferont Slates to urge tbe immediate vaccina tion of cattle and sheep ? Tbe country cannot aff rd to lose its stock, aud now that a sure, attainable safeguard has been discovered, it ought to be applied as quickly as possible. Gen. Scott, says the Pennsylvauia Observer of -Tth nit., made a brief visit to the Pensa cola Navy Yard on Tuesday last. AVe regret to learn that bis feeble health prevented bis mingling with the people or receiving anyone aboard except the officials. Tbe L*. S. steamer on which he came entered port at 6 o'clock r. >t. on Tuesday, and cleared on AVcdnesdav morning at an early hour. The usual honors were paid him by both the army and navv. Fight with Indians.— A party of eighty soldiers and citizens, under command of Majors Mullen and Smith and Captain Starr, had a fight, on the loth of Februray. with a band of Indians who had been raiding in Surprise A alley, stealing and driving off stock. The fight lasted six hours. Highly Indians were killed. The attacking party had one man killed and seven wounded. A bocse worth seventy five thousand dol lars, on Harrison avenue, St. Louis, the pro perty of David Nicholson, has been presented to General Sherman, and the balance of five thousand debars placed to bis credit in bank, by the Committee of subscribers to tbe fund raised last August. Among the relics destroyed by the recent burning of tbe homestead of Gen. John Coffee, near I- loronce, Alabama, was a magnificent sword, presented to Gen. Jackson by the citi i.cns of New Orleans, and bequeathed by him to Col. Andrew Coffee. Want Negro Troops Removed.—To an appeal from Georgians for the removal of colored troops from the interior of that Slate, General Grant has replied that be would remove them us soon as he could substitute other troops. S. H. Parker, formerly Postmaster at San Francisco, fell dead at the Lick House, in that city, on AA'ednesday last. Speech of Senator Smith on the Bill En dorsing the Action of Congress in Es tablishing the Hational Currency. On Saturday Senator Smith'* bilt came np for argument as follows : An Act to more clearly define Acta of the Congress of the United States in their appli cation to the State of California. The people of the State of California, represented in Senate and Assembly, do enact as follows: Section 1. The Act of Congress making Treasury notes a legal fender in the payment of all debts is hereby declared to be in foil force and effect in the State of California, according to the terms of said Act. Section 2. All Acts and parts of Acts that tend to permit persons to waive or annul the full force and effect of said Act of Congress, are hereby repealed. Section 3. This Act shall take effect im mediately. Mr. Smith said— Mr. President :—I would prefer, at this time, to give way to a motion to place this bill at the bead of the general file for Tuesday nest. To day we have a slim Senate, most of the Senators being absent from their seats. It is desirable, sir. that this measure should be considered, and that it may be passed upon by the judgment of the entire body. I hope some Senator will move to postpone farther consid eralion until Tuesday next. From the silence of Senators I apprehend that the opposition have the power—that the requisite number to defeat the bill are present. 1 shall therefore be compelled to proceed. Mr. President, Senators need be under no apprehension—l shall not inflict upon them a long speech. The time fur much speaking, for long speeches has passed ; the hour for action has come. The three hundred bills yet before the two branches of the Legislature, admonish ns to husband our time—to sec to it that we waste no more time in useless debate. I propose to be gov erned by this necessity, now and hereafter, ; until the close of the session. Ido not believe that the people of this State have the power at the present session to inaugurate any measure tending to lessen the rate of interest, or to make capital accessable to themselves ; they must remain yet a little longer in the , hands of the capitalists, the element that has long ruled the State. The money of the nation, the currency of the people, adopted and now used by thirty millions of the citizens of our Republic iu all their transactions of life, can not be introduced into this State ; the power ! that holds this commonwealth in the hollow of its hand, combined, concentrated capital will , not permit it. Sir, capital has too many friends on this floor—for the interest of the people to be served, there are too many greedy money lenders here ; but the time will come when the voice of the masses will awaken their represen tatives to a sense of their duty. Mutteriugs of an offended, wronged people are even now coming up from every quarter of the State, and ere long the deep thunder tones of indig nation will roll around the walls of the Capi tol, admonishing those who bold seats on this floor to beware how they trifle with the demands of the people. For the present, the people have no hope, nor will the day of their deliverance come until they shall overthrow the tables of the money changers, and scourge usurers from the rooms of their Capitol. The Specific Contract Act must remain of the Statutes of this Slate—the power to wipe out the most obnoxious law is in the hands of the people, and they must see to it that they are not again misrepresented■ Two years more must perform their circle ere relief can come, and then if the people are true to themselves the harvest of the greedy money lender will be over, and reason and justice will have their triumph. In ten year’s accumulation of law, not one can be found lending to promote or advance cither of the great leading interests of the State. Huring these ten years capital has held high carnival, innumerable corpora tions have been formed, the powers of the rich have been extended, exclusive franchises have been granted, near two millions of the people’s money given away to a railroad corporation, the people loaded with heavy taxation, and Ibis, this is the simple, yet truthful story of ten years legislation. The working classes of this State are now before us, asking but simple justice at our Lauds, petitioning Senators to make eight hours the legal limit of a day’s labor. Mr. President, that bill cannot pass, I say to the laboring men of the State, your day has not yet come; your just demand will awaken no sympathy here. The power that defeated the repeal of the Specific Contract Act—the members that will vote against this bill, will be marshalled against you—they will move in solid body and in the very first attack will overthrow and defeat your forces. Your day has not yet come, nor will the triumph be with you until by concert of action you shall place iu these scats men drawn from your own numbers—men who would rather serve God thou Mammon. Sir, I have no hope of the en grossment of this bill. The power that rules this State will not yet loosen their hold upon the throats of the people. We must wait pa tiently—we must wait (hough we die in the long dreary night of our wailing. We must wait until the capacious maw of greedy capi talists shall be filled with the life-giving sub stance of the people—wait even until the usurer shall find no more to take from the people. 1 desire the ayes and noes upon this bill—this much I shall obtain, and to this end shall I press it upon the attention of this Senate. I desire the people of this State to know and reflect upon the action of those chosen to represent the loyal element—to know just to what extent they repudiated the National authority and nullified an Act of Congress. The bill now under con sideration contains but two sections. It presents a platform upon which all true Union men can stand—it simply endorses the action of Congress in making Treasury notes a legal tender inpayment of all debts, and de clares that it is not in the power of individuals, either with or without legislative enactment, to impair or annul the Federal authority. All true Union Senators—those who believe it to be the office of loyalty, the duty of patriotism to stand by the Government in time of peace as well as war. to sustain its every policy and credit, will hold it to be their duty to vote for the engrossment of this bill. The converse of the proposition submitted in this Act. presents a platform upon which State Rights Union Senators can join hands with their allies, the liberty bating, govern meut destroying democrats. Those Senators who believe that it is right and proper to annul an act of Congress, will now have an opportunity to so record their votes—Sir. let the roll be called. I am now prepared for the roll—let the record be made up that the peo ple may know who are false to principle, to party, and to Government. One would suppose that in as much as the above bill merely proposes to declare an Act of Congress to be in force in California, would have encountered no objections. Not so. however; the '-bankers’ majority” were alert and voted as follows against engrossment of the bill; the meaning of this vote is the absolute repudiation of any Act of Congress, which they do not intend to be iu force in this State: Noes against engrossment: Belden, Bradley, Cunningham, Bodge, Hager. Hale, Johnson. Knox. Murphy. Myers, Potter, Rob inson, Rush. Shaw, Teegarden. Wadsworth. 16, The above may be considered the ever duc tile instruments of the usurers; they have been consistently so all along. Following are the names of Senators who voted to engross the bill : Ayts—Evans. Freeman. Pratt, Smith. Walcotf, Wright—7. The gentlemen named as follows were absent, but will record them selves in favor of the bill : Lovett. Hartson, Tattle, Maddox, Ewer, Leonard, Benton. Hardy—S. That will leave the Senate Ayes 15, Noes 16 There never was a more formal and complete nullification of an Act of Con gress. and the vote of the majority should damn them. It would seem that they have lost all sense of shame, and are willing to be considered the tools of the bankers. Beport of the Grand Jury. To the Honorable County Court of the County of Butte , State of California .- The Grand Jury impanoeled for the March Term, 1366. beg leave respectfully to report, that they have examined into all cases pre sealed to them; they have examined twenty three cases, on which they have returned true bills: For burglary, 1; grand larceny, 2; attempt to administer poison, 1 ; Chinese nuisances, 11; and ignored 8. The Jury, through Committees, examined the County Infirmary, and the condition of the County Records, and County Offices and Books. The Committee on Infirmary report it in excellent condition, clean and prudently con ducted : that the inmates are satisfied with their fare and qoarters: that the present Su perintendent has succeeded in materially reducing the expenses of the institution, saving mere than one third of the expenses for the first six months, with a larger average of patients by one-sixth, as compared with the books for the six months previous. The Com mittee recommended that the present super intecdent be retained for the good of the institution and economy of the county. The Committee appointed to examine the County Records find them kept in a neat and uniform condition. The balance of funds in the Treasury have been all paid in by 11, B. Hunt to the present official, and the books show that they have been kept in a very neat and creditable manner. So, also, with regard to the County Clerk’s office. The Jury, in a body, visited the County Jail, and found therein some ten prisoners: all in fair health. They cannot say that it is as well cared for as to cleanliness as it should be, there being such an accumulation of filth, added to the dampness, as to render the atmos phere very offensive. The whole establishment is so constructed under ground that there stems to be no way of effectually remedying the san itary condition of it, but by building a new jail, quite independent of the Court House, which your Grand Jury do not feel like recom mending at this time ; they feel that all that can be done now is to make the best of it, by some little improvements, such as procuring for all the cells bedsteads of iron, firmly fastened to the wall; a little extra care to keep the prisoners cleanly, and in keeping the entire place cleaner than it now is; the walls and ceilings should be often whitewashed, and the floors constantly kept clean. The privy be longing to the Jail is a nuisance that would not be tolerated for a single terra by a Grand Jury, if it was the private property of a citizen, and, in the opinion of the Grand Jury, should be effectually abated before the season is so far advanced as to spread contagion beyond the bounds of the Court House property. A due regard to the health of those immediately con nected with the Court House by their official business, should stimulate to an early abatc meut. The Jury believes that a notice of the case and its bearings ou the health and comfort of the citizens, is all that is needed to secure the acliou of the proper authorities in the matter. If, in this, they are mistaken, they request the Court to specially bring the case before the next Grand Jury. They have, also, had complaints before them of certain persons keeping considerable numbers of swine contiguous to dwelling houses, causing nuisances that are detrimental to health and comfort of citizens. From the fact of the present being about the close of the wet season, but little annoyance has been felt from this source recently ; and, the object being to pro tect the health for the future, they have passed the subject by, in the hope and confident ex pectation that all such keeping of swine as would be detrimental to health or comfort will be abandoned; and, if any are kept for the future, it will be in such a manner as not to prejudice the health and comfort of the people. If the nuisances are continued, they ask that the Court, at the next meeting of a Grand Jury, will make special reference to the abate ment thereof by indictment. This coast is threatened by the Asiatic cholera at almost any time; and, from known laws, it is demonstrable that it is shorn of more than half its terrors by personal and general cleanliness. This seems to the Jury sufficient reason for urging the foregoing and following sanitary recommendations. They have found indictments in eleven cases, wherein the peculiar manner of enriching the ground, and of raising some kind of vegetable by the Chinese gardeners, in vats of stagnant water, which they keep during the heat of summer, rendering the air malarious and infec tious. The Jury do not propose to suppress the gardens, but only to abate the nuisance created by their peculiar manner of cultivation. The Jury are encouraged to think Butte county is slowly but surely reducing her indebt edness, without resort to very onerous taxes ; and recommend that the Supervisors be very cautious io the appropriation of moneys from the Treasury of the conaty, as on their action depends the financial honor and credit of the same. Thanking the Court and all its officers for their kindness and prompt attention to all their suggestions, and also to Mr. W. L. Hopkins for tendering the use of his carriage to visit the County Infirmary, the Jury inform the Court they have no further business before them, and ask to be discharged. H. B.
