Or any person who will send to Mr. Mans feld any information of Thomas Lawson will confer a great favor. Idaho City, June 29,1867.m2* A Radical Doctrine.— The Sonora Herald is an intensely Radical sheet. In a late issue it said : David Norris is assistant foreman of the Bulletin. A practical printer, it is true, and not objectionable; but he is a Copperhead, and that fact alone will con demn him as an unsuitable person for the position. Agreeably to Radical theory, then, to be a practical printer is nothing, to be " not objec tionable" is nothing, to fit a man for being State Printer. If he be both, and a Democrat, the latter quality alone unfits him for the place. That's a new, and certainly a Radical doctrine. Suppose the people elect Dan. W. Gelwicks as State Printer of Californià, as they are almost certain to do, will they think that his Democra cy unfits him to hold the office? We reckon not. David Norris, the Printer's candidate, is a splendid printer, and an excellent man, but he has a superior, in every requisite quality for the State Printership, in Dan. Gelwicks. We'll warrant that Norris himself will vote for old Dan. Removal of Indians.— The Statesman of last Thursday says that Gov. Ballard has re moved Bannack John's Indians to a temporary camp at the forks of Boise river, about thirty miles above Boise City. The Governor intends to remove all the straggling Indians about Ada county to the camp, wherp fish and game are plenty, with good range for animals. John's Indians are anxious to go against the Snakes. Indian Agent Powell has present charge of the new temporary reservation. When the Gov ernment ratifies the selection of the reserva tion near Fort Hall, the Indians will be re moved to that location. Government Contracts.— Last Monday Gov. Ballard awarded contracts upon bids offered for supplies for the Indian Superin tendency, as follows ; for 22,500 pounds of ba con, at 33 J cents, to C. Adams; for 36,750 pounds of flour, at 9 cents, to B. M. DuRell ; for 5 tons of hay, at $32,50, to D. N. Hyde ; for 8,000 pounds of oats, at 4 9-10 cents, to C. Adams ; for 2,000 pounds China rice, at 24| eents, to D. N. Hyde; for 2,000 pounds Island or China No. 2 sugar, at 29£ cents, 1,000 Ibseach to D. N. Hyde and Chas. Adams; for 25 cords fir and cotton wood, equally, at $13, 25, to A. S Redway. The bids are all at greenback rates. The Cause Mistaken.— The San Francis co Flag says: The Copperhead party that scoffed and derided the inscription of "Free Labor" on the Republican ban ners of 1862, now claims that it was always the labor ing man's friend. The Flag mistakes the cause of that scoffing and derision by the " Copperhead party." It was not at " Free Labor," which Democrats have always championed, but at the stupen dous hypocrisy and amazing effrontery of the Radicals, who have always opposed the labor ing classes, in daring to inscribe the motto on their banners. - Not Dead.— B. F. Channel!, a life member of the California Pioneers, who was reported killed by In dians a year ago, has turned up alive and well in Cen terville, Idaho, to the gratification of his friends. We clip the above from a late number of the San Francisco Times. Of course B. F. Channell is "alive and well in Centerville," not only "to the gratification of his friends" in California, but to the gratification dnd ben efit of hosts of warm and grateful friends all through this country. But we never before heard of his being reported killed by Indians. Bad Police. —Late investigations in New York City, prove that the Radical Policemen, appointed by virtue of a Legislative statute, are in league with neaily all tne noted thieves, burglars, cracksmen, pickpockets and counter feiters, and share in their plunderings and gains. It is not alone in New York City that thieves are in official position, and share with the rogues and counterfeiters who infest the community. ^_ The Vermont Methodist Conference, at its late session, resolved hereafter to admit no one to its membership who uses tobacco iu any form. We suppo'se that that super-saintly flock would excommunicate a member for washing his scabby sheep in tobacco water. Such iron-clad rules bring reproach on reli S i0D ' -_MM-r— A Humbug Exploded. —A learned bota nist has exploded the long prevalent humbug gery about the " Century Plant." He shows it to be only the Agave Mexicana, or Mexican Aloe, found plentifully in that country, and in stead of blooming only once in each century, it blooms in five or six years, as it reaches ma turity, and only at that time. Deferred. —The Statesman says that Judge Cummins postponed the bearing of the case involving the tenure of office of certain county officials in Ada county, from Wednesday until Thursday, in order to give the County Com missioners opportunity to deliberate upon the course to pursue. JO. LUCKETT'S LEMHI LETTER* Leesburg, (Lemhi Mines,) > June 1U, 1867. y Editor World: By allowing me a small space in your paper.it will save me the time ol" writing to many friends in Idaho City, to whom I promised a letter when I left for this coun try, and such a promise I always feel it my duty, and at the same time a pleasure to fulfill. Now to the point—that is, the extent of the mining region, its richness and the climate: For the latter, I will say, it snowed four day* and nights last week, and even when it is not storming, it is a very cold, unpleasant region. There is certainly gold over a large extent of country, but in my opinion, from what I have heard, seen and prospected, a large, large ma jority will not near pay wages; in fact it will cost $20 per oz. to get it out of the ground. There are a few claims doing tolerably well* but they are few and far between. One bad feature is, every man is on the sell, and many will not Iqt you prospect the claims for sale— putting me in mind when you'and I were beys* if we had a knife that was of no account, we were always ready to swap unsight uuseem There are at present a large number of men out prospecting, and they may make de velopments that may change my mind ; if so, you, amongst the balance of my friends, will hear from me. I have concluded to remain a couple of months and see the " thing out," t am certainly sincere in what I say, I can have no object in keeping people from leaving Idaho Basin, for I have nothing left since the fire, but a little old dwelling, and a small lump, of about 110 pounds, of the best piece of human flesh that was ever wrapped in a calico gown—the latter 1 could easily fetch to this country if I liked it well enough. In conclusion, I will say to my friends, if you are getting your " regu lar hash, or a square mess of pork and beans daily," stay where you are, or if determined to leave, go in some other direction than to this place. Your'a truly, J. A. LUCKETT. . Not " J. C.," as your type man always sets me up. -mm-: From Lemhi. —By Adams, Goodrich &. Co.'s Express, which came in on Wednesday evening from Leesburg, we received the Sal mon City Mining News of June 27th and 30th, from which we glean the following: . Isaac Heath, aged about 35 years, and sup posed to be from Wisconsin, was accidentally drowned while rafting logs down Salmon river May 28th. Two men, named McGraw and Jackson, ex changed shots from six-shooters in Salmon City, June 24th, without damage. Capt. Palmer, late of Owyhee, bad fbund rich quartz seven miles from Leesburg. The Fenians of Leesburg were to have a ball on the 4th of July evening. Hugh O'Neil is Center of the Circle there. A primary meeting of citizens of the Lemhï Basin was called for July 6th, at Leesburg, to elect delegates to a County Convention at Sal mon City, July 8th, for the purpose of nomi nating candidates for county officers, to be vot ed for August 12th. A fire occurred in the upper end of Grants ville—Leesburg—at midnight of June 28th, iff which two miners' cabins and seven unfinished frame buildings were destroyed A favorable' wind saved the whole of Leesburg from con flagration. The fire was caused by the carer leesness of some miners who left live coals' af ter cooking in one of the eabins. A stage arrived at Salmon City, at noon of June 29th, with dates from Virginia City to the 27th, and from New York to the 25th. During the week nearly «me hundred mule loads of general merchandise had been receiv ed on storage at Salmon City from Idaho City. F. W Shade had returned from a prospect ing tour of the head of Little Lost river. He saw lots of "good looking quartz," ,but did not find the place where placer mines a#e reported., * He thiuks they are at the head/of Big Lotft river. He found a great deal of snow on the ra luntains. The discovery is reported of a large quartz* ledge near Smith's gulch, two miles from Lees burg, towards Salmon river. A 4th of July celebration was being arrang ed in Salmon City. The News tells of "specimens" from quart/ ledges, but not a line is there telling of the product of a single placer claim in that whole country. - Great Fire. —The Salt Lake Vedette of July 7th says: We learn from a telegraphic dispatch received yesterday, in this city, by James Thompson, Esq., that a destructive fire has swept over Southern California, destroy- ing crops, fences, houses and barns on its route from the "Upper Country to jSan Bernardino," a distance of two hundred miles. No partie, ulars, except that his ranch at Enciuo, with all its crops, was reduced by the devouring flames. Mr. Thompson has recently arrived in this city, in advance of a large band of horses and mules destined for the States. --- «-M -T All Right.— The San Francisco Flag, Rad ical, says of the Democratic candidate for Gov ernor of California : " Mr. Haight was nomi nated by acclimation " Then he is very cer- , tain to weather the storm on election day which will blow the Radical Gorham and hi» fellows hway up Salt river. •- New Mines. —The Vedette of July 7th con- , tains reports which indicate that rich mine» have been struck in the Green river country. A bar, assayed from dust said to be brought in* by prospectors from that region to Salt Lako City, weighed $740, and was superior in fine ness to any gold the editor ever saw H in Lem hi, Boise or Montana." The San Francisco Dispatch of June 27th* asks for information of W. J. Beggs, a news paper man, formerly of Oregon, who has beea' missing from his family for about a mouth.
