Regular Placerville Correspondence.
Placerville, October 18th, 1854.
At last we are in a fair way to get out from
that filthy pool of politics that has for some
time been engrossing a laree place in the at
tention of our citizens. One feels quite re
lieved, and can walk about the streets with
impunity and without running the risk of
beingbutton-holed by some hopeful candidate
for office. The election came off on the 10th
and a great deal of animation was manifested
by both parties ; nothing, however, occurred
to mar the peace and usual monotony that
generally prevails in our qniet town. If,
however, Placerville, owing to the combined
efforts of partisans, should have been indis
creel enough to assume a lively appearance
for the time being, I can assure you that our
town has again relapsed into its "accustomed
serenity," and looks as dull as any other small
town after election. Of the results of which
I expect you have been advised. Unfortuate
ly tbe image of office so flattering to some of
our disappointed candidates, has fled from
them, "like the Utopian dreams," when they
tried to embrace it. I certainly sympathize
with some of them, and can only bid them
to " sit down softly and be content as a com
mon man, one of the mere vulgar." The
Democrats are highly elated with their soc
coss, and held a great pow-wow on receipt of
the news of their victory. One of the head
sachems of the old wigwam addressed an
enthusiastic gathering of Democrats, ""and
who, pretending to be a wit, thonght himsdf
licensed to ridicule men of worth and gravity,
with tbe most shameful buffooneries. This
important business ? proceeded for some time
in grave and respectful silence (7). The au
dience, pleased at seeing their orator so much
beguiled of his melancholy, exerted them
selves to increase the pleasure and harmo
ny (?) of the meeting with excellent success.
When things had attained their bight of en
thusiasm, a funeral cortege was perceived to
move slowly up, and the coffin was placed in
front of the rostrum. The orator began to
explain to his attentive listeners, that the
body, which they were regarding with com
passionate eyes, was that of the late Sheriff
Pinkham, and after perpetrating some bad
jokes at the expense of our worthy Sheriff,
the orator started to read that " horrid *
Emancipation Proclamation, which be stated
would be buried with Mr. Pinkham in fre*rt
of the rostrum, where a large hole was al
ready dug. Moved with a feeling of disg»sl x
to which none could be insensible, at seeing
so much abuse heaped upon agentleman who
is held in high estimation by the public, and
against whose character and official career
and integrity, calumny itself will stand aback,
I retreated in good order, net losing the word*
of the orator, however, when be instructed
the " Grage Diggers " to "dig deep," and as
suring the audience that there was not the
least danger of Mr. Pinkham, or tbe " Black
Republican party " ever rising again. Sev

eral other disappointed candidates, and the
BUck Republican party generally, was rather
roughly handled. Such buffooneries would
not be tolerated in any civilized tommanity,
and now let me assure you Mr* feds., that our
citizens do not approve of it, and denounce
it as very unbecoming to gentlemen. A largo
boat, with the words "Salt River Packet "
inscribed ti^on it, has been built, add iv
wooden cannon, banners with devices and
inscriptions best understood by theihseTve*,
have also been brought into requisition, head
ed by Paston's brass band, they started over
to your place intending to visit all the camps
in the Basin. Thus, much money is being
lavishly spent for an unworthy object. If
they would take part of this money—say the
amount of the revenue duty on the whisky
only that was drank on this "jollification,'
as they term it, and give it to the suffering
emigrant widows and families, who are said
to be starving for want of bread at and about
Boise City, it would be a much more laudable
purpose. Most of the emigrants are said to
be destitute of everything—are in distress,
have nothing to eat and are literally starving.
The Sanitary Commission, for instance, would
also accept of it, and our brave soldiers ii
battle, who are fighting a foe that has been
rendered desperate by their few chances ot
final success, will thank yon most heartily
for it. Besides, these jollifications have A
strong tendency towards making bummers
and idlers out of our industrious miners.
Take them out of their claims nnd march
them all throngh the Basin (to the tune of
Dixie), they will soon begin to like this sort
idleness, and idleness, you know, is our an
cient enemy. The old man of the " Arabian
Nights," once take him upon your shoulders
and you can't shake him off again so easily,
Frank Hussey's Variety Troupe afrlved
here a few nights ago, and left immediately
for your place, so that I expect by this time
they are performing in Idaho City to crowded
houses. Some of our citizens tried to induce
tbe troupe to play here a few nights befdre^
going over to Idaho, but Mr. McGinley said
" 'twouldn't do, couldn't throw off on Idaho,"
but promised to return to Placervilfc in two
weeks and give us Mazeppa (?) td out hearts'
content. Tbe papers from below sptak in
very favorable terms of this troupe, Ah'd
wherever they have performed have giveh
wherever they have performed have giveh
general satisfation. Miss Julia Morgan, nil
actress of some eminence, is tbe "star" of
this troupe. Speaking of theatricals, I am
reminded of the accident you speak of in (he
last issue of the New*, that befell Ilfs; iikjne.
It certainly is not as bad iti il was reported
at first, but serious enougii (6 be a Warning
to stage drivers not to allow ladies to ride on
the outside, and more especially an
enchanting actfess like Julia Dean Hayne,—
whose gay and sparkling wit, and graceful
demeanor is a compound of ease and elegance
—and active politeness beautifully tempered
with modesty becoming her sex, would make
the most skillful John drive astray. Tbe
California Stage Co. dismiss any driver that
would allow a lady to ride outside, and U is
highly important that such a rule sb»u?d be
established by our Stage Co. Not only that
th6y 4'Udanger the vahfelMe life (God bless
her?) bt flte l'ady passeWfcer, but the lives of
tbe ffisfdfr passengers art'likewise imperiled ;
audi »sf fifcr stopping a lad'y from speaking, or
looking " ifftertSting," we might as well try
to stop the niddh frdtn making Jts daily revo
lutions round the gldbe.
Hia Excellency Gdleinor Cifleb' Lyon, ac
companied by Alfajof Tftfaix, has arrived iu
Placerville. It Wfe'rtf Wafs' our good fortune
to form the arqitaifrlart of a more gentleman
ly and less ostentatious man than Gov. Lyon.
The Governor was solicited by Mr. Holbrook,
on behalf of his party, to come upon
stand in the Plaza in order to be introduced
to tbe procession that was just the* leaving
for Pioneer City. The Governor appeared
assid loud bursts of applause, whilst Paston's
taud discoursed patritetriro airs, and made A
few packing seamarks, in which he complimen
ted 1 owr tWiving town'and the country gen »
erally, bat enough ta stamp him as an orator
of the highest order. The present executive
bead of Idaho is a man of rare genius, match
less ecwmsy and unbounded kindness.
Cue eldbst inhabitant, who is at she same
time tbe Wtatber clerk of FWertille, preditU
a hard Winter course be Ought to know.
And rbe way it is starting in on ua all at
once, I think that his prophecy will be a cor,
rect one, for tbe weather is getting remark*
My cold, and tbe Wisher is fast approaching
and makes o«re feel as though he wag living
in the northern latitudes of Siberia
