Personal. Gen. Allen, the veteran editor, so favorably known to the press and Californians generally, is at present on a visit to oar town, and honored this office with a call. Row. Mr. NcCoUom, who is the resident Baptist Clergyman at Neva da, preached a sermon in this place on Wednes day evening last, and in accordance with the re quest of his pleased audience, will preach here again one week from next Wednesday evening. Due notice will be given. The Flrat Rain of the season fell on Tuesday morning last, be fore daybreak. There was just enough to lay the dust and startle the owners of leaking bouses. The Old Oak Tree which stood in front of the meat market on Main street, stands there no longer. Mr. Guthrie clung to it lovingly for a good while, although it grew inconveniently in the centre of the side walk by his door. He could see something beau tiful in it, and proudly named his establishment after it; but its spreading branches were in the way of his two-story brick, and its stout trunk too great an obstruction to street travel, so he reluctantly consented to its removal. It was the last remnant of the original forest left standing In the street, and now that it is gone the portion of the town where it stood seems vacant and lonesome, and the naked front of the new brick building stares very impudently at the desolate air. Quartz About San Juau. Several gentlemen of this place bare lately taken np and recorded a ledge of quartz which is situated very near town, and which it is confi dently believed will pay to work Some favora ble prospects have already been obtained by crushing small portions of the rock in a mortar, and it Is the intention of the parties concerned to folly test it forthwith. If paying quartz can be found in this vicinity it will add largely to the prosperity and perma nence of the community, by opening a wider field for the investment of capital and the em ployment of labor. There is certainly enough quartz to be found; the only question is—will it payl It is worth while to know. Inhuman Cruelty. Some wretch in human form was seen beat ing a horse with great violence over the head and nose, on Tuesday evening last, not far this side of Cherokee. He was driving a span of horses attached to a wagon, and what the poor brute he was murdering had done to offend him we have Bot learned; but he could have done nothing to warrant such cruel punishment. The man (1) beat him across the bead —the most sensitive part of a horse—with what appeared to be the heavy iron end of a trace for at least fifteen ruin ate*, the helpless and bewildered animal strag gling ineffectually to avoid the storm of blows. When this occurrence took pUce the pine woods wore dark with the coming night, the planet Venus shone like a smaller moon in the West, the Comet fi ished its streaming hair to the left of ruddy Mars, and all nature was calm and lovely. But that miserable wretch, insensi ble to all this, and to the thousand starry eyes that saw his infamy, let loose the hell of hie pas sions on the dumb, helpless brute which had served him long and faithfully. Such a man as that would not respect woman’s innocence nor be touched by the tears of orphans. We should dread to be in his power, and would avoid his acquaintance as if be were the mnrderer of babes. There is too much of this wanton and useless cruelty to animals. Very frequently men may be seen along the roads beating their dumb servants Jut a* described above, or even worse—we knew a man once to gouge oat a mule's eye t Persons who have so little feeling as to be guilty of such •ots cannot be deterred from them by appeals to their humanity; but it may cheek them to know that (here is a special statute prohibiting cruelty to animals, and which provides as follows : "Every person who shall maliciously kill,maim or wound any horse, ox, or other domestic ani- P*l belonging to another, or shall maliciously or crdrlly beat or torture any such animal, WHETHER BELONGING TO HIMSELF OR ANOTHER, •hall, upon oonviction, be punished by a fine of got more Mian five hundred dollars, or by Imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding •lx months, or by both such fine and impris onment.” MAll**o»sena, John I” A Chinaman applied at the stage office in ihis place for passage to Nevada, saying that he hid money with him, but had plenty in Neva da Bad would pay there—"all-ee sem.” The •geat refused to allow him a passage on these terms, but John stowed himself in the •lago, expecting to be allowed to proceed.

Associate Judges. Eaqairea Collins, of Cherokee, and Hart- XAN, of Moore’s Flat, were on Monday last elec ted, by the Justices’ Convention which assem ftitei u Nevada, to the dignity of sitting as side- in the Court of Sessions. They will no dfgbt have the high honor of giving their opin ions as to the hardness of the bench. Garden. One of the best gardens in this vicinity is owned and cultivated by Chinese. It is situated ob the little brook which crosses the road to Freeman’s, and yields all sorts of Celestial vege tables not generally raised by Americans. The owners deserve ranch credit for their industry and neatness. Cabin Robbed. Some time during last Saturday the cabin fit Charum Godfrey, on Willow Creek, was broken open, and robbed of $25 or S3O. A per son who would thus steal the hard earnings of a poor miner is ne gentleman, and we question whether he has the poursge to “pry ‘stand’ to a Newspaper Changes. —Mr. J. S. Butler of the Red Bluff Beacon , haying sold the of fice to C. E. Fisher, takes leave of his pat rons and cotemporaries in a very manly and unaffected valedictory. Ben. B. Kooaer, whose paper, the San An dreas Independent, is second to no interior journal in California, has withdrawn from the editorship of that sheet, and is succeed ed by a former contributor, Mr. Seabough, who wrote that poetical brevity—“ Music of the Night.” Mr. Geo. W. Welch, of the Alta Ex press, Nevada, kindly forwarded to this of fice yesterday, a package of San Francisco dailies. Among them is that neat little sheet, the Evening Telegram, which has for its figure head a vignette representing America and England, in the form of an Indian and white maiden, sitting upon the cable beneath the Atlantic, and whispering to one another. County Items. From the Democrat of the 6th, we glean the following items. Robbery and Murder.— Last Sunday evening four white men went to a Chinese camp on Bear river, about two miles above Little York, for the purpose of robbing them. There were four Chinamen in the camp, who resisted, when the robbers fired on them, killing one of the Chinamen instantly, and wounding the other three. The robbers then took what money they could find and left. County Business. —The County Supervi sors elect, Messrs. Grier, Davis and Everett, met at the Court House on Monday, and were sworn into office—Mr. Grier being Pre sident of the Board. They were engaged Monday and yesterday in looking over the affairs of the county. Yesterday evening the Board adjourned to meet on the first Monday in November. Killed. —A melancholy and fatal accident occurred at Moore’s Flat on the 25th ulr., re sulting in the death of Mr. Charles Doc, for merly of Rutland county, Vt. The deceased was at work in some-mining claims, where a shaft had been sunk to a depth of a hundred and fifty feet. While standing on a board which had been laid across the shaft, it broke and he was precipitated to the bottom. An iron bar, which fell into the shaft at the same time, was run through his body, enter ing the abdomen and c jming out at the back. He was brought to the surfrce as soon as possible, and survived about two hours,when he expired. Quartz Machinery. —Mr. A. J. Doolit tle, of Grizzly Hill, in this county, has re cently received a patent from Washington, for an improvement in quartz mill machinery. The invention consists in employing flat springs to which the stampers are connected, for the double purpose of guiding the stamp ers and increasing the force of the blow. It further consists in so arranging the battery that the finer pieces of quartz can pass out so that the large pieces are always exposed to the full force of the blow. From an exam ination of the drawings, we should judge that the improvement might be used to ad vantage in quartz mills. Brutal Assault. —An elderly lady named Davis was brutally knocked down in the Brooklyn House, on Broad street, by one Tim Murray. Mrs. Davis received several severe but not dangerous wounds upon the head from the club used by her drunken as sailant. Justice Smith bound the fellow over to the next Grand Jury in SI,OOO bonds. Social Ball. —The ladies of Snow Drop Social Temple, Moore’s Flat, were to give a ball at that place on the evening of the Bth. The JVcvada A'ational of the 2d, gives an unusual quantity of local items of interest, a portion of which we re-print: The eastern end of Main street of Grass Valley, is a scene of considerable activity in the way of mining. Many shafts have been sunk to the bed-rock, drifts run, and piles of dirt taken out to await the coming of water for washing. In one place the street has been let down a little by the caving of a drift. We understand that most of the dirt taken out prospects well. Ouc or two com panies have panned out as much as two bits to the pan. Quartz mining about our town is decidedly ‘looking up.’ Activity is every where to be observed. Good times generally may be an ticipated this coming winter, and especially easy steamer days Messrs. White & Co., on Wednesday last, cleaned up SIO,OOO, the result of crushing 100 tons of quartz. The ledge is about three feet thick, and they were just three weeks taking out the SIO,OOO. New and Rich Mining Fields. — Within the last few months it has been discovered that the red dirt on the bills hereabout con tains large quantities of gold. The dirt is carted to the mills and there crushed and washed. Whether sluicing it off would pay. has not yet been tried, on account of the scarcity of water. This discovery plays ha voc with the theories of many. How gold got there, is not a question with those en gaged in hauling red dirt; and had they paused to deliberate the matter, probably never would have found the gold. Certain it is that though seemingly poor, and without the ‘concomitant circumstances’ which show gold bearing earth, the red dirt does pay.— Messrs. Larimer & Co. are crushing red sur face dirt from New York Hill, which is pay ing them from $6 to $8 per load. From Ophir, Sebastopol, Gold, Osborne, Echo, and many other surrounding hills, parties are engaged in carting the dirt. There is no doubt but that dirt from all the bills, whose surfaces contain decomposed quartz, may be obtained which will prove highly remunera tive. The expense of this kind of mining is se small that capital is not required to embark in it. We have beard of several companies forming to try other hills than those men tioned. Celebration. —Monday evening last the inhabitants of Grass Valley celebrated the laying of the Atlantic Gable, without any concert of action, or any previous arrange ment. The canon—‘Old Democracy’—was called into service, and awakened the echoes far and wide. The celebration was entirely impromptu, and the gladness which every where was exhibited, showed that the popu lar heart was in it We have to thank Mr. T. Worthington for a present of figs. They were raised about a mile above this place, thus showing that win ter here, is not sufficient to kill the trees.— Mr. Worthington’s example should be fol lowed by all—plant some fig trees. Graves. —We were shown a second crop of grapes, growing in Dr. Tompkin’s garden. The clusters are nearly as large and full as those of the first crop, and bid fair to ripen fully before cool weather. The value of the buildings now going up in Grass Valley, and of those completed within the last three months, amounts in the aggre gate to about sixty thousand dollars.

Volume Fourteen begins Sept. 11,1858 Mechanics, Inventors, Manufacturers and Farmers. The Scientific American has now reached its Four teenth Year, and will enter upon a New Volume on the 21th of September. It is the only weekly publica tion of the kind now issued in this country, and it lias a very extensive circulation in all the States of the Union. It is not, as some might suppose from its title, a dry, abstruse work on technical science; on the contrary, it so deals with the great events going on in the scientific mechanical and indostrial worlds, at to please and in struct every one. If the Mechanic or Artizan wishes to know the best machine in use, or how to make any substance employed in bis business—if the Housewife wishes to get a recipe for making a good color, Ac.—if the Inventor wishes to know what is going on in the way of Improvements—if the manufacturer wishes to keep posted with the times, and to employ the best fa cilities in his business—if the Man of Leisure and study wishes to Keep himself familiar with the progress made in the chemical labratory, or in the construction of telegraphs, steamships, railroads, reapers, mowers, and a thousand other machines and appliances, both of peace and war—all these desiderata can be found in the Scientific American, and not elsewhere. They sre here presented in a reliable and interesting form, adapted to the comprehension of minds unlearned in the higher branches of science and art.
