Our paper has been and i? strictly independ ent in politics, as -Well as in everything else, and the time has arrived when in order to further succeed in publishing a news paper, it is necessary to dive, or be driven, into poli tics, an employment that the undersigned have no relish for; and especially is it appa rent that a paper adrerse to the present Ad ministration, one that will lahar to advance the interests of the so-called democratic party is bound to start in our midst, and as the un dersigned, personally, are eminently unsouudi altogether unreliable and entirely opposed to the principles and policy of the modern dem ocratic party, we have thought it prudent and proper, in view of vfee sigtis of tbe times, to accept the offer of Messrs. Bowman & Go., and to retire from the business, leaving them in possession of at least a portion of the handle of the lever that moves the world,— knowing full well that, even though they may teach a strange (and even false) doctrifle,— our refusal to sell would not deter them from the accomplishment of their designs-. Having said t-bus-UHicb, we bid farewell and a-n-nounce that, in all human probability, this is the last issue of the Boise News. Next week the pa per will be published' undter a new name and by Messrs. Bowman & Co., with II. C. Street as editor; aud in the meantime, and for thirty days to come, we hope our patrons who have riotpuid up will come and see us. The sud denness of this transaction—it having been consummated on the eve of going to press— has deprived us of both time and space to make a formal valedictory. T. J. & J. S. Butler. The Jollifications.—T he Democratic jolli fioation meeting in this city on Saturday eve ning was an immense success. The candle illumination was really beautiful, and partic. ularly so from East Hill looking down into town. The rows of candles from our office presented the appearance of a solid, streak of blaze, and the wind flared them just enough to make the effect charming. Many mere people were in attendance than congregated before the election to hear the speeches of either party. E. D. Holbrook, upon the as sumption that lie was in all probability elec ted to Congress, made a conservative speech, deration ia their rejoicings, and aSSUring ** Cr ° wd tUnt if when lhe northern C0Uol,es shaU have been heanJ from lbe re * F oves ,n bis< favor, be will be the servant ° f P° 1Uical prt,ty ' b,,t £ba11 d ° tbe b<53t be a can for the masses of^tbe people of Idaho. The procession that came from the other side of the Basia was respectable in numbers and their horses and officers were gaily caparison ed with flags, scarfs, rosettes, ribbons, etc., besides a boat hauled along with a wooden cannon sticking out behind, representing the departure of the Union candidates up Salt River with the cannon which they fired before the election, &c.,&c. Placerville, Centerville and Hog'em were each visited in turn, and the same performances were repeated in each of these.places that characterized the meeting here, winding up with a grand "constitution al (?) ball, 1 'in this city. The proposition in mockery of the symbol's of death and funeral ceremonies, to btwy a coffin and all that sort of thing, was discarded and everything done decently and in order. The only fears we have heard suggested are that, like the old hen that had never laid an eggsince-sbe was a pullet, until in her twentieth year she hap pened to drop one, and was so tickled with the fMsuit that she cackled herself to death, they Sbiay not stop rejoicing until they come jo a like ftue. jo a like ftue. Tub Ullman Case. —On Monday last James Oilman, charged with tho murder of George Priruin, the barber, some two weeks since, was taken before Justice Walker for exami nation, and admitted to bail in tbe sum of ten thoa-sand dollars, cn a charge of murder in the second'degree. A bond cot ^itioned for his appearance- atltbe next term of the Dist.

Myers, Fred W. Bell and John Ew ing for one thousand dollars each, and A. Nordheimer for two thousand dollars. We understand that the defense proved an entire absence of malice towards the party k-Hle-d, until in a moment of passion he transferred the malice held ngainst the proprietor of tbe shop to the man Primm, and without deliberation, shot him dead.

A pisttfl Shot was heard in the house, and a man emerged from the front door, crying " I'm murdered/' ran UoiVn about fifty yards to tbe front of the Cincin nati Saloon and called to Jonathan G. Dun can, who was standing in the door, to help him up. Duncan reached lijs hand out and raised him on to the porch or stoop, vvlieii lie discovered a two-edged bowie knife; the blade of which was eight, or ten inches in length, slicking In his Side : he—Duncan—pulled the knife out and threw it down on the floor, when the Wounded man, who proved to be fidwurd Baldock, formerly of Yreka, Cal., fell over apparently dead. Dr. Healey was called and dressed the wound, but found no signs of life remaining other than a con vulsive tremor running through his frame. Simultaneously with the occurrence of the above incidents, Drs. Hogg and Hart is were called to.see a man in tbe Mexican woman's house, by the name of Ben Bloomer who, up on examination, was found to have received several severe blows on the Lead with some heavy instrument—a revolve?; perhaps—and was in a ciiticivl' condition. Justice Walker on Monday morning,'summoned a jury and held an inquest over the dead body of Baldock, and elicited about the following testimonv, in substance: Last Summer Baldock was liviug wita this woman as a paramour, and recently be has been at Auburn, Cation Cily, Walla Walla, when he claimedtohave received word From her requesting him to return and live with her again; accordingly lie came up, and arrived here on the day previous to his death, but the fickle fair one had changed her mind and concluded not to receive him to her arms. He went and demanded admittance on Satur day evening, but was refused. On Sunday lie showed Duncan a large knife which he car ried, and in return Duncan showed him a.fine pocket pistol that had been given*him- that day in return for a present of a breast-pin. Baldock took the pistol and shoved it in his pocket, saying be would not give it back that night, although requested to do so by Duncan. With the pistol In his pocket he went out about town, and about nine o'clock returned to the woman's house and demanded entrance, which being denied, he burst in tbe door, where he found Bloomer engaged in putting wood in. the stove; he advanced towards him with a large Colt's revolver in his hand— and * be of in which be had borrowed from Morgan, the actor, under pretense of going info the coun-a try—with which he struck BJoomer twice over the head; Bloomer seized the pfotol wtvh his left han4 r and with bis right drew a knife from his belt and plunged it into Baldock's side; the pistol, in the meantime, fired and Baldock tried to jerk it away, but Bloomer let go of the knife and left it sticking in the wound, and taking hold with both bands, wrenched tbe pistol out of his adversary's hand, who then ran out at the door, crying murder, &c. The jury, consisting of J. R. To'man, T. U. Cunningham, Danl. D. Drake, Frank Scarborough, T. Scholl and W. C. James, as well as the Justice, unanimously signed a verdict to the following effect : ; That Fdwd. Baldock came to his death by a wound inflicted in his left side, arid in the lower portion of the abdomen, with a large knife in tine hands of Benjamin Bloomer ; and that said wound was made ia self-defense in resisting a deadly attack made by Edward Baldock upon him, the said Benj. Bloomer, with a dtagoon revolver. Thb Boise News prevents the courts from obtaining juries readily in criminal crises, so* we are informed by the officers and attorneys. Much trouble, as we have observedonrselves, exists in consequence of men who are sum moned asjurors having heard about the case iu the Boise News, and as a general thing be lieved what they read, so as to unfit them for jurymen. We hare been requested to desist J from the publication of facts on this account,! but as our readers, like all other communities, are anxious to know what is Being done in their midst, especially wlisn the law is being broken, we foel that we- should not only do them an injustice but deprive ourselves of just such items as are of interest te many patrons, by abstaining from reporting pro ceedings in the examining courts. One at torney requested us, if we must publish these things, not to give evidence so accura-tely, as the public had come to some extent to kook upon our repoxts as semi-official and to give them full credence. We regret beirg the eause of disturbance in court, but until there is a law to prevent it, we shall continue to Sell wkat we know about the doings of courts both criminal and civil, provided we consider the subject matter of sufficient importance to our readers to interest them ; and moreover, we shall continue to publish as near the truth as we can arrive at from tb« evidence. as we can arrive at from tb« ISobif. & Bush have again started the Bear Rub mill, which it will be remembered was burned down about a month ago.

A word about the ground of Gardiilef, Lucas & Co., may not be particularly out of place. Their claims are located near httlf a fnile above the Warm Springs} the}' hre styled bar claims, and exteud back from the margin of the flat six hundred feet and are two hundred feel wide.* This Company and the one adjoining on thb west, have the first right to the" Warm Spting wafer for mining purposes, w hich is sufficient for a good lieud the year round. It is an opinion prevailing to some degree, that the diggings of Buena Vista Bar are chiefly of the "rim-rock" order, and to prove—or, rather to disprove this, the foreman of the company, Gardiner, (alias " Kentuck,") con cluded to run a tunnel the entire length of their claims and thereby prospect their ground thoroughly. The tunnel was started about a month or six weeks ago, and last Sunday we found the tunnel some three hundred and seventy feet under ground, and allowing one hundred feet for a cu-t at ihc commencement, leaves about one hundred and thirty feet of lbe tiTnnel to complete. Four men do the work—two working during the day and two during the night. The ground is about twenty feet deep overhead in the deepest place. The limbering is substantial and safe, ar.d every thing connected with the claim is carried on systematically; in fact, " Kentuck," who has spent seven years of his life tunnel-mining in Nevada, Cal., won't do things any other way. But to the " prospects." The ground which might be said to constitute tbe rim rock diggings, paid on an average eight and ten dollars per day to the man ; as the tunnel advanced the ground prospected better, and they now find ground, that will pay forty dol lars jier day to the hand, and establishing a belief that it will keep getting better as far back as they will go. The company will now sink a shaft for tbe purpose of aning the lunuel and making it more convenient for the timber that his out the R. getting the timber to Its place. When the mans tunnel is completed the raining will be continued by side tunnels and drifting. They hare a good hydraulic attachment, but the dumping facilities are not sufficiently ample to accommodate that important "arm off the service." The claims above, below and on ail sides of Keatuck's, are paying well, and it's onr belief (and particularly our wish) that our old frieud will make a good raise off of the enlei p: ise, w.hic.ffiwe consider Wiorihv ol special note. This is the longest tunnel \\t know of in the counirv. J Gan smses Mill.; —On Sunday la.-t, ser»»n wagons heavily ludan with machinery and other material pertaining to the Garrison (Jambritma Co.'s mill, a rived ia town and passed on out to the Ganibrinns lode, some five^or six mile* above town on the divide between Moore's and Elk creeks. This is the mill purchased some time since in San Fran cisco by Mr. Combs, only a portion of which has arrived; the balance being loaded on five wagons, making twelve large ox-tenm loads 'n all with from three to seven yoke to Hie team. We are assured, by those who ought to know, that Mr. Donohue declared this to be as good and as fine a mill as ever left his foundry. It has sufficient power to run twen ty stamps,.only ten of which will bo attached at first, but so arranged that the others can be added at auy time with but little expense beyond the price of the battery and freight upon it. Two months will probably elapse before it is read} to crush. The Astor Gold and Silver Mining Co. held their regular annual meeting under the pro visions of the incorporation law of the Ter ritory, on the 8th of Oitober^and elected F. Cheeoey, President,—T. C. Poujade, Treasur er— A. Phillips, Secretary—and Alf M. Mil ler, A. Showers and F. Cheeney, Trustees for the ensuing year. No gold-bearing ledge in tbe Basin bids fairer to become famous for its immense richness titan the Astor, when the arrangements ulre«dy completed ars varried into effect and a mill erected r n the lode. A tunnel, ns we hare already noted, h«s been run into the hill, striking thu ledge a hundred feet below the surface, and yet the mill site is at least a hundred feet below the mouth of the tunnel, so that the rock has only to be run out at the mouth and. tumbled into, tbe mill,, saving all the expense of buuliug. load ing, emptying, hoisting, &c. Nevada Election. —Wc are indebted to the Humboldt Express Co. for a copy of tifee* Vir. giuia (Nevada) Enterprise oi' the 8th, from which we learn, that the election in Nevada, hitherto reported to have gone Democratic resulted in the election of Judge Cradlebaugh —People'3 Union Nominee—over Bradford Democratic nominee, notwithstanding anoth. er branch of the Upioa party were running Thos. Fitch for the same position. Cradie baugb received S-781, Fitch 1208 and Brad ford 3716, makifig a total vote for delegate to Congress of 7705, while the vote on tbe adoption of the Constitution at the same elec tion reached 11655, showing that 2950 w ho voted for and against the Constitution didnot vole for delegate. The Enterprise says this discrepancy was caused by the unpopularity of Fitch, the regular nominee of the Union party, who was a libel on the parly and whose name they were ashamed to print on their tiikets. Had a popular nomination been made the Union majority would have been over three thousand instead of 1273, as shown turaj. %r.d!ebaugV^ plurality is titEo W.
