[As w# receive the names of candidates nominated other precinct s they shaüappear— E d.] CAUFORIKIA REGISTRY FRAUD. One of the reasons given by the Radicals of California, for the passage of the iniquitous Registry law of that State, was that it would prevent all kinds of frauds in elections. The practicable workings of the Act demonstrate that it is an engine of great power for corrup tion and fraud iu the hands of the party which controls it. A few days ago, Grove L. John-1 son, Deputy Assessor of Sacramento countv presented to the County Clerk sixty-one names to be recorded ou the Great Register, purport ing to come from Granite township. The Cleri, being an old resident of that township, did not recognize any of the names, and upon instituting inquiries, it was found that the en tire list was fraudulent. Johnson is the Gor ham candidate for County Auditor. The pen ,|p| Y J§rthe offence is imprisonment. But up to last accounts, Johnson had not even been arrested, nor did he deign to furnish any ex planation of the affair until five days after the fraud was discovered in his office, and then he told a cock and bull story, which but added ftdsefcited to his fraud. It is very likely that tee exposure of Johnson's villainy would never have been made were it i ot for the division which sow prevails in the Radical ranks in California, as it was Anti-Gorham officers who traced and exposed the fraud perpetrated by Johnson. It is equally probable that similar frauds have been committed by the Radical Registry officers against the Democracy in other eètroties of California, of which no dis "will be made until after the election But sufficient is already known, in the case in point, to prove that the Registry system is sus ceptible of greater and more dangerous frauds than any other system yet devised. Ballot box stuffing is as nothing to it. ' >4 Marcus Boruck., of the San Francisco Spirit of the limes, Gorhamite, angrily asks about the delegates from that city to the Con veniioH which nominated Bidwell : In what comer grocery, rum shop, back alley, or slum, where the delegate« to the Suppurating Con vention elected? Whose views were expressed in the matter? Marcus is thoroughly posted about all such haunfs**ad well he knows that had the dele gates been elected from them, or expressed the viewfr of the classes which frequent them.Gor ham would have been the choice of the Con ' ventioiL „ Appointed.—A late dispatch says John M Murphy, formerly of this city, has been con firmed as Consul of Tobasco, a port of Mexico on the Bay of Cam peachy. He left Silver City, July 30th, by Hill Beachey's Cisco line, doubtless on his way to that port. Col. Wshjlkr.— Eastern papers state that Col. JohilB. Weller, Ex-Senator and Ex-Gov omor of California, will come to the Pacific coast to organize an expedition to go to Mexico. Ai last accounts he was in New Orleans, en gaged in a similar movement. ——*—— - Supreme Court.— The sitting of the Ter ritorial Supreme Court has been postponed to meet at Boise City, Monday, August 18th, en suing. Judge Kelly left iNew York July 14th, and will, likely, be present to take his seat upon the Bench. . - — -- Convicted. -Abijal McCall, the defaulting Treasurer of Santa Clara county,, California, has been convicted and sentenced to two years' imprisonment in the State Prison for his ras cality. He was one of the very pious order of Radicals. IJUl P&CIMRX—The contested «lection case be and Seite!, in Walla Walla eojwty* W. T, f(* tee Sheriffalty, has been decide '»'»«WLtftte latte A CHAVGB for the better. ne The Co|apobj||river steamboat Company have at hftjfc bertfcompelled to recognize the ssity of a »ore liberal management of iness, so for as pertains to the passen freight trade with this important up on of country. So long as that Com pahy béfieved that this valuable trade could not be diverted from their route they charged ex orbitant rates for freight and passage, gave very limited accommodations to the public who were constrained to patronize their steamers, and acted generally like a soulless corporation of men who felt that they held their customers at their mercy, and were determined ho remit no opportunity to make all who came in con tact with them to feel and acknowledge their great power. The opening of the Chico route barely affect ed the O. 3. N. Co. They did not believe it to be practicable, and the conduct of Capt. Mul lan and Qeu. Bidwell, in managing that over land route, well nigh proved their belief to be well founded. But the opening of the Central Railroad and Hill Beaohey's overland route, managed as it is by practical, experienced, able men, who have correct views of the best means to secure the patronage and good will of the public to routes of travel, made a very marked difference in the business of the steamer Com pany, and the very material falling off in their freight and passenger trade, this season, finally convinced them that they were not omnipo tent, that the days of their complete monopoly of the trade to this section were gone forever, and that they must accommodate themselves to the new situation. Accordingly, they have within a short time, reduced their rates of pas sage and freight to something like reasonable charges. This action on the part of the steamer Com pany has afforded the inauguration of a better coudition of things, between the Columbia riv of er and thi8 portion of the coantry> in the mat t er of staging, and already good advantage has been taken of it. For a year or two past there has not been that degree of enterprise and that spirit of accommodation manifested by the stage proprietors, between Idaho and the Columbia river, which the public had a right to expect and receive. A change has lately been made, however, which will prove mutu ally beneficial, wê believe, to the public and the proprietors. By this arrangement, that veteran Idaho stage owner, and very liberal, excellent man, Mr. John Hailey, has become sole proprietor of the line between Boise City arid Umatilla and Walla Walla, and already the enterprise and regard for the interests of the traveling publie which has ever marked his management is displayed. He has stocked the road all along with fresh, superior American horses, changed the route from the long Warm Springs way over the Blue Mountains to the shorter Meacham route, and reduced the time of making the trip, from Boise City to Uma tilla, from four days to two and a half days. He has also made a very material reduction in the price of passage—that of $40 from Boise City to Umatilla instead of $55, as it was be fore. By the arrangement which Mr. Hailey has perfected, passengers can now make the full trip from Idaho City to Portland in five days, at an expense of $61 50, stage and steam er passage? or clear through to San Francisco for $72 60 in the steerage, or $87 50 in cabin —aud the whole trip can be made from this city to San Francisco in about eight or nine days, whereas, under the old arrangement, the time occupied in the trip was usually from twelve to eighteen days, at an expense of about one hundred and fifty dollars. The people of this Basin, equally with those in Boise Valley, will derive benefit from this new order of things, in the way of passenger travel, and also in the matter of the transpor tation of freights, as the Ocean steamers from San Francisco to Portland, as well as the Co lumbia river steamers, wdil henceforth carry freight at much lower rates than formerly, and efforts will be made to economize time as well charges to both passengers and freighters over the route. The trade of Idaho is too valuable for the Columbia river and Oce&n steamers to lose, if they can by great efforts and liberal in ducements share or control it, and a wholesome competition to this end will always secure to our citizens a choice of routes at advantageous terms. The people of Idaho arc masters of the situation, and they can hereafter effectually control it to their owm highest welfare. Justice Blocked. —In consequence of the protracted absence of Judge Kelly* of the Northern Judicial District of this Territory, the Board of Commissioners of Nez Perce county have sent a communication to Chief Justice McBride and Judge Cummins, asking that one of them shall hold a term ot Court in Lewiston, to dear the long and accumulating criminal and civil docket. Pretty Good. —Sinco Mrs. Jane Swiss* helm has undertaken to prove that Grant is no General, the New York Times calls the atten tion of readers to the fact that it was Jane who took Vicksburg and received Gen.

Minear was assaulted in Silver City last Winter, and it is supposed re ceived his wound while engaged in that attack. He was committed to answer for the offence, but was released and brought to Boise City to I have surgical attendance afforded to him. The Rev. Father Malo, and two Catholic j Sisters, from Portland, are in Boise City. The Statesman says : The object of their visiting I Idaho is to select the most suitable place for 1 the establishment of a female academy and boarding school, and also a Catholic Church. I Meanwhile they are making a collection among the charitable people to go to the clothing and schooling of the many orphans placed in their care.

The Reverend Father and the Sis ters will visit all the principal towns in the Territory. ] Latest News from Lemhi lesi Ae ws f rom Lunhi.

Abandoned Mails.—A. G. Cook, lately ar rived at Boise City from the East overland by émigrant train, informs the Statesman that at Medicine Bow, June 23d, he saw about a wag on load of mail matter, in lock bags and tied sacks, lying iu the mud. He was there two days, and saw Wells, Fargo & Co.'s coaches passing both ways, and uo notice was taken of j the pile of mail matter. He saw mail bags sometimes at stations and sometimes by the i side of the road. In one place bags of mail matter were thrown into mud-holes to w alk over upon, and he walked over them himself and others did the same. Newspapers were plenty at such places ; everybody had them yi ° g i ^ out differentplaces along the road— _ Z "waaZt bidf" alleged for leaving the mails. The train en countered no difficulty from Indians. A Consequence.— The Denver (Colorado) News of July 27th says : Travel has greatly fallen off on account of Indian troubles.
