THE SIERRA CITIZEN.
DOWNIITILLE, SATURDAY, MARCH 19, >59. Tn Natiosal Democracy is that union of citisens which embrace» the whole Union of State* in the batit and tendency of itt principle», fetter* no factional spirit, eherithet no sectional aim, and promul gate* no ietue incompatible with the necessities of the Republic. Tn Ootnrrr Democratic Cksteal Committee hate declared by resolution, "Thatthe Committee representing the Democracy of Sierra County, reetgnixe the Sierra Cttoen at the only true Demo cratic paper tn the County, and recommend the same to the patron age of the Democracy Tows and County. Fixed op fob the Fight. —lt was an endless journey which certain men undertook when they commenced at Downieville to ran toward public office. They seem to prefer running to acquiring and trot unceasingly, clap ping their bands to encourage themselves and mistaking the laughter of bystanders for plaudit shouts. Ihe elec tion of this year will pass as usual; the untiring clique will be at work first and last and the “ great principles I of popular sovereignty” shall gush from the organ and I the stump, and finally the anticipated triumph will be I where it was last year. A Broderick caucus was held last week ; the “mid night conclave ” determined that popular sovereignty lacks but one material thing—a Judge Taylor ; a Judge Taylor would perfect the “ great principles ” and shove the Union on to glory. Elsewise the country would soon lose its identity and sink to disgrace. “We must work,” said the conclave, “ We must help the Democrats to bolt the District Judgeship ; ” “then.” said Taylor, “ I’ll be Judge“ then,” said the Doctor, “ We'll give ’em —f’ “ Then” said F. “ you must help me some or we’ll wilt.” It was agreed that Broderick should be kept under the shadow of popular sovereignty; that Republican aid should be cautiously solicited, and that the projected Judge should sustain the incompetency of the organ, while the Doctor would act as commander-in-chief to in fluence and command the people. Well, let the fight come as it has been fixed up. The National Democracy will be united, the people will be more than ever disgusted with the efforts of a few who possess neither the merit of principle nor the ability to deceive. Triumph of Innocence ; on a Deer Chase. —The most exciting event which has transpired in Downieville since a time to which our memory runneth not, was caused this week by the appearance of a couple of deer, which had been driven into town from Galloway Hill.— One of the animals was killed in a garden and the other ran across the river to Dnrgan Flat, with every body in chase yelling and firing pistols. One man attempted to jump the river and half succeeded ; had he cleared the stream, and had the deer been unable to run, be might have caught it. The frightened an'mal recrossed the river below town and was followed by several men on horses and mules, followed by dogs snd cheered by the crowd assembled on Dnrgan bridge. The deer escaped and has our sympathy and beat wiskes for its long life and happiness. We never saw such a determination to run down innocence as was made cn that day, and the triumph which it achieved by mere fleetness of foot, did as good to see. Ghapparal Hilt..— This mining place is situated on tile ridge between Eureka and Monte Cristo, and its rep utation for large yields will soon be greatly enhanced. The Vulcan company have, for several weeks, cleaned up about 80 ounces a week. The Chapparal company, though but just getting under way, are doing very well; they lately took out some fine specimens, one of which weighed 10 ounces of pure gold. , Both companies have had a very limited supply of water, or their yield wond have been much larger. The Star Point and Michigan companies, whichhavebeen getting good pay from their running their main tunnels. A large boardinghouse is now being completed, and other build fogs will be erected at the Hill as soon as the weather will permit. e. | Boos Creek — Death of A Miner. —On Wednesday night of this week, John Lindsay was killed in the For est tunnel. He was at work “ breasting out,” whuft a large bonlder fell and nearly severed his body. The de ceased was formerly of Rensellaer county, N. Y., tlrrty eigbt years of age. and leaves a wife and two children, who are living in New York. His friend, Thoma«W. Steele, of Downieville. desires his most sincere thinks extended to the Rock Greek miners for their kindness and assistance rendered on the sad occasion. Summary Termination of a Fight. —The most remr.rka fale termination we ever saw given to a fight, occurred yesterday in the court house square. Two male chickens got Into a quarrel, words led to blows, and spurred on nodonbt by the presence of several bens to do their West, the combatants straggled violently for a few minijtes, “RBlllYTKrge hog approached, took one of tba roasters In her mouth and ran as if impressed with (he guilt of a despicable transaction. The remaining chicken looked astonished, then walked among the hens boasting, per haps, of having licked the other fellow. The Newsmen and Others. —Arms and John Maguire supply us daily with the latest intelligence. To the lat ter we are indebted for copies of the Democratic Stan dard. The Pioneer Express. E. H. Burns of Marysville, Wells, Fargo A Co., Freeman & Co., J. W. Sullivan, J. B. Still & Co., H. J. Bidieman and members of the Leg islature, merit our acknowledgments for newspapers and documentary favors. Bank Exchange.— Aleck Donovan advertises that be has opened an “ exchange office ” under Chase’s build ing, at the corner of Main and Commercial streets. The many acquaintances of the liberal souled proprietor will crowd in to see him doing well. Continued.—The sixth chapter of our storm story brings us through several days of pleasant weather, to the commencement of what appears to be long warm rain. Tu Turnpike .—Atchison and bis men are busy on the Sierra Turnpike. Next week. 150 men will be at work on thisside of the Mountain House, and in a short while workmen will be placed between Goodyears’ and Dow nleville. Expected Flood.— People in the valleys had as well give attention to the fact that more snow is lying upon the mountains than was ever known at this time of year. A abort period of warm weather will unbind the floods and send them down destructively. Camptontille.—A bloody fight occurred between two men, whose names we have not ascertained. Both were eat In a dangerous manner. W. F. Smith and I. C. McQuaid quarreled on Saturday, laat, and decided to end the difficulty in a duel, but it is presumed that better means of adjustment have been applied. A Lesson Learned from Stupidity and Obscurity. — The San Jose Telegraph , a seven year old anti-Slavery stupidity, apparently nourished wholly by its obscurity, baa ascertained that. There are now pressing upon the consideration of the public mind a number of great questions, which will oc copy a controlling influence in deciding the next Presi dential election. First. Popular Sovereignty—the right of the people 4o form their own fundamental laws, uncontrolled by Federal power. Second. The great Pacific Railroad. Third. Retrenchment in government expenses. Fourth. The opening of the African Slave trade. These topics will form subjects of popular discussion | daring the next Presidential canvass. The Administra- j tioo is opposed to the three first, and will favor the latter. Will tbs Telegraph ’• liberality permit ns to laugh at it T The Hazard of Maintaining the Law at Alt. Haz- I ards.— We like to see the law “ maintained at all haz- j ards,” but while there is no necessity for extensive and expensive display in the extraordinary execution, we prefer to disapprove the agitated orgency which, for illustration, characterized government action in the Shasta disturbance. The Governor has laid before the Assembly an account of his proceedings, enveloped in his correspondence with Sheriff Stockton and Deputy Governor Lewis, the tenor of which indicates more ap prehension of danger from some great foe than prepara tion for dispersing an unlawful gathering. The bustle, the brief dispatch, the reiterated request for aid, the lengthy instructions, the sending of arms, and every feat in the performance, exhibited the extreme of theoretical and practicable determination to maintain the law at al] hazards. But the circumstances immediate to the im proper action in Shasta, did not warrant the extent of warlike demonstration made by legal authorities. The expense incurred by the State was greater than forty times the amount which the threatened Chinese will ever pay in taxes, and the moral right vested in the expelling parlies was superior to the credit due to the government for its interference. The facts show no violence except the forming in a body of a number of miners who or may become, citizens of the country, to remove, with out resorting to cruelty, a number of those who are not estimated among civilized men, and whose habits and presence were obnoxious. This was the offense ; noth ing further was contemplated ; the peace and dignity of the Slate were ndt insulted ; the lives and property of citizens were not placed in peril. If the opposing party which joined the Sheriff bad been armed by the State and the Sheriff had ordered the parlies who were peaceably escorting the Chinese to be dispersed by force, the haz ard of maintaining the law at all hazards would have been manifest in the shape of charges aga : nst the Gov ernor for having recklessly authorized the slaughter of American citizens. The hazard of maintaining the law at all hazards should be calmly contemplated by the Executive Depart ment, as well for the purpose of preserving the power of the State from the contempt of the people as to en force it when the necessity is clearly evident. Let Us Refuse to Hear More Bloody Murmurs.—lt must long have been the hope of every man whose prin ciples act on any other than fanatical pivots, that Kansas would no longer form the basis of political controversy. Such is still our hope, but we anticipate a renewal of bloody murmurs, and dread the attending confusion ; therefore, we begin early to advise the California public to look upon every report, which may come loudly from Kansas as the offensive echoing of an agitation intended to assist the weakest and most disgraceful purposes of party. We are confident that the National Democratic party will not engraft any sectionalism upon the national articles of faith ; to the noise-makers, will be left all the means of foolish disturbance ; Democrats will have no burden of fanaticized requirement, and instead of listen in or to and refuting the falsifying representations of the : varied ites of faction, they need but to firmly adhere to their organization and manfully present the stability and patriotism of their principles. In a recent account of affairs in Kansas, we obtain a paragraph on home pro gress which is worthy of preservation, as a contradiction of what may be disseminated with the hope of reviving belief in the fictitious troubles. It is as follows: “ Home application is beginning to show itself in every direction. Contentment and happiness are making their impress on every countenance, and onr industrial economy will show greater developments of the soil, and improvements in homes, than have been shown for the whole period of Kansas settlement.” In preserving this, put it with the fact that quietude in Kansas was produced by Democratic policy in the worst period of reckless excitement; and retain the opinion that free State and slave State border-ruffianism in Kansas, or elsewhere, can have no rational application in the respectable operations of parties in California. Sacramento and Sutter. —The Supreme Court of the United States have confirmed the Sutter title to eleven leagues of land, embracing the city of Sacramento, and sent the twenty-two-league grant back to undergo fur ther investigation. The people of Sacramento have at last come to the end of their dispute as to the first own ership of the ground on which they fixed their habitations. Other controversies will arise, in order to establish the right of possession on the validity of Sutter's claim, and before they shall have settled those difficulties entirely, the city will have grown in age and importance. The decision of the court will favorably influence the best interests of Sacramento, prevent the extension of the virulent “ squatter interest,” and cherish more of that spirit of pride and contentment which is essential to the building up of a city's substantial beauty. The confirm ation of title does not restore Suiter to wealth ; his own advantage will not be much, for long ago he was re lieved of the most profitable portions of his grants by transfers, various in their degrees of connivance. He has been managed under a fee and agency system which deprives him of any important benefit from his lands. Legislation Against the People.— The adoption of the bill to abolish service of copies of complaints in law cases, filled Sacramento with county clerks and sheriffs, who are there to superintend and superinduce the final passage of an amendatory act which will exempt some twenty-sqven counties from the provisions of the first j act. They have succeeded with the Assembly, but we hope the Senate will refuse to accept the bribe produced bill. The act to abolish the useless and expensive ser vice was a people’s measure, and those who have acted against the measure in consequence of county office in fluence, stand in the odious light of having withdrawn from serving the people to favor the private interests of office holding cupidity. They will not escape condem nation. High Handed High Mindedness. —The Sacramento Union has stigmatized the San Andreas Independent with the term high-minded, indeed “ one of the most high-minded in the State ; ” and the calumniator inten sified the injurious remark by giving “ minded ” a slant so that it would lean from “ high ” —thus, “ High-mind ed.” Now, we must denominate that a high handed in dignity toward a pap r whose worst characteristic is simply the one of endeavoring to imitate the Union in the expression and emptiness of opinion. Dark Proclivities. —The Republican organ in San Francisco, says it has no abolition proclivities. This declaration will not he inserted in the annals of truth.— The Republican paper appears to us like the individual who violently affirmed that he did not belong to the “ nigger party,” and was told that his proclivities were that way, for his hair curled and bis legs were fixed so near the middle of his feet that when about to pull his boots on, he could not proceed without feeling to ascer tain whether he was at work on the same side with bis face. Funnier than Fun. —The funniest occurrence of the late session of Congress, has been reported throughout the country thus : “ Hr. Broderick—Then 1 shall reserve my vote. [Laughter.]” We see this laughter-exciting remark every day. in connection with the statement that Broderick asked Gwin what his sentiments were. “ You will know when I vote,” said Gwin. Broderick’s wit was dangerously aroused, and “ Mr. Broderick—Then I shall reserve my vote. [Laughter.]” We think that if there is anything funnier than fun, it must be D. C. Broderick in the Senate of the United States. In the Laudable Attitude. —The best evidence of the usefulness of a journal is found in the fact that it dis pleases somebody, otherwise it would be a mere negative sheet, performing no good purpose in society, but pro tracting an existence fur no desirable object. We do not wish to, and will not, publish such a paper. Our object is to assist and sustain certain moral principles,, such as we believe to be identified with our position in society. We believe such principles will affect our standing as a community and as a town, and whenever we see these principles trodden under foot by judges, juries, or any body else, our voice will be heard loudly calling them to asense of their duty. —Red Bluff Beacon. • The Beacon is placed in the laudable attitude, and so its enemies will discover when they see that no words of theirs will neutralize it’s influence. An intelligent and upright man with a newspaper, is ten thousand times more powerful in the even and quiet pursuit of his duties than all little town combinations of character question ers and loud escape pipes of egotism and slander. His position, without his effort, is sufficient to withstand their envenomed and vulgar talk, which at length be comes stale even in disreputable places. The Journalist whose motives are honorable and whose independence is fearless, may feel pain from the misrepresentations of street blowers and vain imposters, but the cure comes speedily in the reflection that all around him are men of superior worth, whose silent esteem obliterates the great est injury which loose and lying tongues can inflict on private feelings or public reputation. For and Against The principal argument against Kirkpatrick’s Revenue Bill is, that it proposes to increase the number of collectors. The principal argument in its favor is, that it proposes to equalize and reduce taxa" tion and render its collection certain. The argument against, reaches to the superficial notion that there are already too many public officers ; the argument for, reaches to those profound considerations of public policy which aim to relieve the people of their most grievous burdens. The Woman witu the Thousand Dollar Shawl.— Sale was made last week in San Francisco, of a lady’s shawl for SIOOO. This is our opportunity for expressing disapprobation of thousand dollar shawls ; we have al ways been ready to say that a woman who will carry a thousand dollars so loosely as in a shawl, cannot carry herself angelically upright. The taste which demands a thousand dollar shawl is unrefined, if not absolutely vitiated, and we would rather espouse the unadorned contents of a poor calico frock than expect happiness with a thousand dollar shawl. Defiant.—The San Francisco Times defies the rankest pro-slavery, or any other paper in California, to find a single principle it has ever advocated to which it can fairly or squarely take exceptions. Would it be fair ; and square to admit that the Republican Times has a number of principles, and lump them to take exceptions to the whole ? The State of Oregon.—lnasmuch as Congress has admitted Oregon into the Union, we must call her the ! State of Oregon. It is to be hoped that she will now | wash her face, clean her clothes, comb her hair and oth erwise endeavor to render herself fit to be seen with the I rest of the family. As a Territorial female, she has not acted very sweetly reputable. Intelligence by the Overland Mail.— Latest Date, February Yith. — We are furnished by Freeman & Co.'s Express with Sullivan’s Overland Missouri Republican, from which we obtain the following summary of general news. The Illinois Legislature which continues in session, has before it a proposition to establish three Banks—one at Cairo, another at Springfield, and a third at Chicago I —having each a capital of three millions, and the power to issue three dollars to one of specie, j In the Missouri Legislature, the State credit as con i nected with grants of bonds, is how under discussion ; several bills having .been reported. Some of them pro pose to reserve all the unexhausted State credit 10 form a fund to pay off the interest on bonds. Others propose further, aid to Railroads. An appropriation of $2,000 has been voted by the Senate in behalf of the Mt. Vernon fund. The splendid paintings of Washington and Jefferson have been executed on behalf of the State by the Mis souri artist, and one of them has been hung up iu the State Capitol. A bill authorizing Germans to sell lager beer on Sun ; day, was defeated by a large majority. William Buschmtn, a young Prussian, lately arrived in St. Louis, cut his throat with a razor. The act was committed in so determined a manner, that his head was nearly severed from his body. The Territorial committees of both Houses of Con gress having recommended a Territorial organization for Arizona, it is probable the subject will receive prompt and affirmative action from those bodies. Information has been received at Washington of the ratification by Nicaragua of the Cass-Yissari treaty. It secures important facilities to the United States in trans porting munitions of war and mails, and the right to in terpose by force for protecting the same. It gives no ex clusive preference to any one transit company, and any which may be established is forbidden to declare divi dends exceeding fifteen per cent. The revolution in Hayti has thoroughly succeeded.— The Emperor Soulouque has abandoned his possessions to the revolutionary leader Geffrard, and taken refuge on board a British vessel. The steamship America, the latest arrival from Europe, brings news that points most threateningly to a war be tween France and Austria. The first named power is forming an army corps in the Alps, and instituting large naval preparations in her Mediterranean ports. The Legislature of Ohio is considering a bill to pre vent first and second cousins marrying. While under discussion, an amendment was offered to forbid the mar riage of whites and blacks, and it is expected that they will be added to the bill. Walter Harper, of Detroit, a quiet and reserved man, living modestly there for many years, has just taken that town by surprise, with a donation of 5100.000 worth of , property for founding a hospital for sick and aged poor. | There has been another conviction for murder in Bal | timore. John Wiseman, a boy but fifteen years old, was [ found guilty of killing another boy of the same age, named John Parian, in July last. Major Alexander Culbertson, of the American Fur | Company, has arrived direct from the Upper Missouri, i He brings $1,300 in gold dust, obtained on the divide i between the Missouri and Columbia rivers. It islump j gold, not of fine quality, being worth only sld€r sls per ounce, but plenty in that locality, which is known as ; Gov. Stevens’ Pass. The sources of the two streams are so near that he drank water out of the Missouri on the east side of the Rocky Mountains, and half an hour after drank out of the Columbia on the Pacific slope. Mrs. Anna Cooper, of Cincinnati, formerly of New Jersey, claims to he a lineal descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who died in England in 1622. or thereabout, and left an immense estate worth some $80,000,000, which, after passing through several generations, has at last been enabled to find one of the family upon whom to be stow itself. Squire Sayres, an old man. well known in Ingham county, Michigan, committed suicide about the 10th inst. The deceased was a soldier and pensioner of the war of 1812. The female operatives in the Lowell (Mass.) mills, are on a strike. They number about five hundred, are mostly Irish of the lowest order, and demand the wages paid before the crisis of 1857, It is rumored that a new Democratic daily newspaper, with editors from the South, is to be established in New York, with a sinking fund of SIOO,OOO to be provided. The Jews of the United States have it in contempla tion to establish a General Assembly, or'Board of Rep resentatives, to take control of Jewish interests in this country. The New York Times publishes an agreement made between Phelan, of New York- and Seereiter. of Detroit, for a great billiard match for SIO,OOO, to be played in Detroit two months from the I4th. Charles N. Pine, editor of the Chicago Herald, and Marshal of Northern Illinois, has largely overdrawn bis ■alary, and rendered himself amenable in other respects to the penalty of the Snb-Treasnry law. The Registration - Business. — The Legislature has amended.the Registration law: “In addition to marri ages, birth-, divorces and deaths, there are also to be entered for registry in the office of the County Recorder, the dame, residence, locality, etc., of all persons who may take out letters testamentary or of administration This duty is made under the new law to devolve upon the Clerk of the Probate Court; likewise in the case of divorces the Clerks of the Courts in which divorces are granted, instead of the parties applying, as in the pres ent case, are required to file record of the same. The Clerks in performing each service may charge in addi tion to costs, two dollars, to be paid by the parties apply ing. Notices of marriages, births and deaths are to be entered according to the regulations already prescribed, but which, under the amendatory Act. are simplified and shortened. The County Recorder is to receive one dollar for every entry, one half of which he may retain. The remainder is to go to the State Registrar.” The Registrar will receive duplicate records every three months, from which to prepare annual returns for the State's use. It is supposed that the change in the law will require a re-appointment of Registrar. [Reg ister is not the word.] If the Registrar must be re commissioned, wc shall regret to see the sufferings of the present official prolonged contrary to his wishes, as it is understood that he took the office last year at a sacrifice and does not desire to remain in a position where, he comically expresses it. the trar is a d — d sight more than the Regis. Bad Action in San Juan.— The Hydraulic Press re ports and reprobates some very bad actions which lately disgraced San Juan. A Chinaman was caught in the act of stealing a pair of bools, and he received a severe flog ging on the bare back. We quote from the Press: “ But a worse thing than this happened on the night of the same day- Four or five white men,who would feel insulted were their respectability called in question, went under cover of darkness to a cabin tenanted by three negroes, drove them over two miles out of town in the direction of Freeman’s Crossing, tied them and whipped them on the bare back with a raw hide. One of the colored men was a stranger, except to two or three of our citizens, who knfMV him in Oroville and say that he is a good man ; he was let off with five lashes. The other two had lived with the negro who was sent to’Nevada for stealing ; and for this, the only offense proved against them, they were severely beaten—one of them until he fainted, as it is reported, several times in succession. This one had hi-? back awfully cut up. and lias since fled the place. It would make ns sick to record such horrible cruelty, did not a just indignation take the place of every weaker feeling. It makes one ashamed of human nature—nr rath er of creatures who thus debase it by their brutality.” Supreme Court Decisions. —Burke Hughes vs. the Table .Mountain Water Company fy Lafarge. —This is an action of ejectment brought to recover a ditch. The complaint alleges possession in the defendants; the answer denies that defendants “ unlawfully, wrongfully and in violation of plaintiffs’ rights, had the possession.” This is no denial of plaintiffs’ allegation ; the averment is therefore admitted by the pleadings. The time within w'hich notice shall be given to produce a paper, so as to pave the way for parol proof of its contents, lies in the discretion of the Court, and if the time is not sufficient to enable the party notified to pro duce it. the appellant should make that fact appear affirmatively. Judgment affirmed. The People vs. Ah Fong. —The Judge charged orally, and then offered to put the charge in writing if the coun sel requested. This is error. The prisoner has a right to have the charge given in writing, and the record must show - an express waiver of the right. In criminal cases, the defendant need not except to an error. In this re spect, criminal differ from civil cases. Farrell Sf Farrell vs. Enright. —The seventeenth sec tion of the first Article of the Constitution does not con flict with the common law rule which prohib’-ts non-resi dent aliens from inheriting real estate. To enable an alien to inherit real estate, he or she must lie a bona fide resident of the State at the time of the djescent cast. — Democratic Standard. vs. Hutchinson. —The partiei? and several other persons were tenants in common of ajtract of land, claimed under a Spanish grant; the otter claimants entered into an agreement with the defefclant and one Jerome Davis for the prosecution of thl proceedings necessary to obtain a confirmation, stipnbfling that the expenses attendant upon the execution of Hie agreement should be borne by the claimants, in proportion to the interest which each possessed in the pixperly. The plaintiff sued the defendant upon bis promissory note, and the defendant set up a« an offset a cla*i for services rendered and money expended in the execution of the agreement. The Court below% apparently treating the defendant and Davis as joint contractors,'refused to ad mit any evidence of the separate claim of tie defendant. This is error, at least so far as the expenditure is con cerned. Judgment reversed, and cause remanded for farther proceedings. Amalgamation by a China Woman.— Tl* San Francis co Morning Call stales that a female Cifttese, residing on Jackson street, lately gave birth to thrfce young ones, each of whom possesses certain characteristics which dis tinguish three of the great original races; which divide mankind, viz : the Mongolian, (he Circassian and tbe African. This item is equal to the Call's argument in favor of Chinese immigration—effective only in its ab surdity. CheapCruelty. —Capt. Wakeman was lately fined SSO in San Francisco, for the infliction of “ cruel and unusual punishment ” upon a sailor. Cruel and unusual punish ment is cheap in San Francisco. MARRIED, In Placerville, March 9th, Mr. J. H. Vanderbilt to Mrs. E. Herrick, relict of Bruce Herrick, formerly of Akron, Summit county, Ohio. In Downlevitle, on the 15th inst., John McLuas, native of Nova Scotia, aged 26 years. DISTRICT COURT SUMMONS. DISTRICT COURT. SEVENTEENTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT,IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF SIERRA.
