Mortuary and Vital Statistics.—From
the report of the State Registrar we regret
to learn that the law requiring registration
of births, deaths, marriages, divorces, etc.,
Is still generally disregarded. The statistics
returned for 1359 were very meager, and
thirteen counties made no report at all. The
inferences from the few statistics obtained
arc very interesting The chief grounds for
divorces were drunkenness, cruelty and de
serlion. The principal mortuary cause has
been consumption, but the disease was gen
erally contracted abroad. Diseases of the
heart and throat rank next.
In view of the importance to science, and
even to the ever} - day interests of society,
of the registration law, the noncomplianca
with it is not flattering to the intelligence of
our people. We hope it may not fco re
pealed, but that some method may be found
for insuring a fuller compliance with it. If
every newspaper publisher in the State
would send a copy of his paper regularly to
the Registrar, a great mass of valuable sta
tistics would be afforded that officer even if
the people continue to disregard the law as
heretofore. No doubt a request to this ef
fect would be cheerfully granted.
The Little Pioneer.—This is the name of
a handsomely printed and illustrated month
ly for little folks, published at San Francisco
by Hutchings and Rosenfleld, and edited by
some genial writer who calls himself ‘‘Uncle
John.” The Little Pioiutr is really a clever
production, compares favorably with the
best serials of its class in the East, and is
furnished at the reasonable price of #T 25
per year. We hope this commendable effort
to establish a Juvenile literature of our own,
to give California children an acquaintance
with whatever is peculiar and pleasing in
the wonderful State of their birth, will be
sustained as it deserves.
Hutchings’ Magazine for March concludes
a series of papers on the great Yoscmite Val
ley. These papers have all been profusely
illustrated with well executed wood engrav- |
ings from photographic views, and the final
illustrations are equal to any that have pre
ceded them. We notice also some outline
sketches of California wild flowers. They
will be quickly recognised. This magazine
has become one of the permanent and popu
lar institutions of the State, and in the years
to come bound volumes will have a peculiar
value.
Who is It ? —Some sensible fellow who
appreciates merit has sent us a copy of Ap
pleton’s “Cyclopedia of Biography”—the
very book we intended to buy next. These
encyclopedias are wonderfully useful to wri
ters for the press, who are popularly sup
posed to know everything except how to
make money and keep it. If onr modest
friend will send us his name we will add it
to the list of immortals in the cyclopedia !
The most astonishing reports come from
the new quart/ mines of Southern Oregon.
Rude arastras arc said to he crushing rock
that yields from ten dollars to two and a half
ounces per pound ! One lot of 400 pounds
yielded 444 ounces of gold. The surface of
the hill where the ledge crons out. is said
to he strewn fora considerable distance with
auriferous boulders. If these reports prove
truthful, Washoe will have a formidable ri
val.
The gold and silver mines of Santa Cruz
have not vet amounted to much. According
to the ACapt. Graham, on whose lands
the silver ore is found, exacts from prospect
ors fifty per cent, of the gross returns. Au
riferous quartz is quite abundant, says the
Sentinel, but its value remains to be ascer
tained.
A hill has been introduced in the Assem
bly to prohibit the sale of Chine'e persons
of either sex. Some measure should cer
tainlv he taken to convince the Celestials of
the difference between themselves and other
animals.
The Legislature has adopted resolutions
offered hr Mr. Smith of Nevada, urging onr
Congressmen to prevent the name of “Ne
vada” being given to Western Utah if it is
set apart as a separate territory. Good.
Sam Ahhev has for sale DeGroot’s map of
Washoe, which is correct enough for the
purposes of travelers, and gives a good gen
eral idea of the situation of noted places on
the eastern slope.

STATISTICS OF NEVADA COUNTY.
From the report of Martin Brennan, Esq.,
Assessor of this county, as we find it em
bodied in the annual report of the State
Surveyor, we compile the following inter
esting statistics, which will be found much
more satisfactory than the meager epitome
copied some time since from the Union:
The area of the county has been estimated
at one thousand square miles, more than
half of which is mineral laud. The amount
of agricultural and grazing land is given by
the assessor a about four hundred and thir
ty-four square miles. Forty thousand acres
are located for agricultural purposes, and
one hundred and thirty thousand acres for
grazing purposes, with an estimated value,
in the aggregate, for improvements, of two
hundred and sixty thousand dollars. Nine
hundred and fifty -seven acres were sown to
wheat last year, and yielded an average of
twenty-five bushels to the aero. Twenty
seven hundred acres of barley and fifteen
hundred of oats, yielded thirty bushels per
acre. Five hundred acres of potatoes were
raised, and about five thousand acres were
cultivated as grass and meadow hind. The
number of peach trees in the county is 400,-
000; apple, 33,000; pear, 10,000; nectarine,
314; quince, 573; apricot, 370; lig, 203; plum
-300; cherry, 850; in all, 451,070 fruit trees.
The number of grape vines planted is 60,000;
and there are eleven acres of strawberry
vines. From what wo know personally of
the agricultural progress of the county this
season, it is safe to infer that the above fig
ures as to the number of acres of grain and
the number of fruit trees and vines, will be
increased fully fifty per cent, by next fall.
The report makes no mention of garden
produce, which is raised in quantities suf
ficient to nearly supply the home market.
The live stock embraces 875 horses, 363
mules, 3,724 neat cattle, 965 sheep, 129
goats, 3,150 hogs. 39,000 chickens, 59G tur
keys, 137 ducks, 79 geese.
The mining canals number ninety-one,
have an aggregate length of 727 miles, vary
in capacity from one to four thousand inches,
and are assessed at $-985,800 dollars The
actual value is probably near $2,000,000. —
No other county in the State has an equal
length of mining ditches, a fact which il
lustrates the extensiveness of our placer dig
£>»gs.
The number of saw mills is forty-four—
twenty-eight propelled by steam and sixteen
by water power—running one hundred and
six saws, and cutting annually forty million
feet of lumber.
There are thirty-two quartz mills of the
aggregate value of #121,000. These crush
yearly 300,000 tons of quartz which yields
an average of 820 per ton ; making the an
nnal gold yield from quartz alone six million
dollars. The number of arastras used is
thirty-eight
There are but two grist mills, both pro
pelled by steam, with seven run of stone,
and grinding annually 5,800 tons of grain.
The flour made by them is justly celebrated,
and commanded a premium at the State
Fair.
Of toll roads and bridges there are twen
ty-one We may remark that private enter
prise has given us as wide and lightly graded
roads as there arc in the State, and has be
gun the construction of two great highways
across the summit of the Sierra Nevada.
The manufactories of the county are three
tanneries, two foundries, seven breweries—
making 197,000 gallons of beer annually—
and one rope walk.
The value of real estate is 83,628,445. and
of personal property $1,014,500 ; making a
total of . 4,642,945.
Passenger Train to Washoe
We are reliably informed that Mr. T. G.
Smith, the well-known livery stable keeper
of this place, will soon put a passenger train
of one hundred mules on the road between
North San Juan and the eastern slope, by
way of Forest City and the Ilenness Pass.—
As soon as the snow on the summit will per
mit, the train will go through to Carson City
and the silver mines. An attempt to get
through would have been made next week,
and with every chance ofsuccess, but for the
intervention of a snow storm. The route
will no doubt be open in time to accommo
date the stream of travel which will sot in
from the north by the beginning of spring.
After the Truckec Turnpike Company shall
have completed its enterprise, and numerous
stations are established along the road, the
Ilenness Pass route will be kept open through
all seasons, and must be the great highway
forall northern travel. Itssupcriority asasum
merroad is already established. Mr. Smith’s
passenger train is only preliminary to a line
of stages, which will run from this point
next summer. The citizens of Yuba, Neva
da and Sierra counties may well congratulate
themselves on the certainty that a great
trausmontane highway will go through their
midst.
In connection with this subject wo learn
tuat Mr. Smith will establish a station at the
new town of Truckee City, which is situated
at the south point of the Buttes in Truckec
Meadows, where all the northern roads con
verge. and grass, hay, grain and water are
abundant A hotel is already in process of
erection, and several stores and shops will
soon be put up and occupied. A better lo
cality fora town could not have been select
ed. The land surrounding it is adapted to
agriculture, and already occupied by persons
who intend to put in grain and vegetable
crops and plant frc.it trees and grape vines.
Silver, copper and lead have been found in
the adjoining hills, where also pine timber
grows and two saw mills have been erected.
The new town was started, according to the
Marysville Appeal, by an association of eight
men of means and influence, part of whom
are on the site now, and the remainder in
Marysville, North Sun Juan and Forest City.
A plum tree sprout at San Jose grew ten
feet and seven inches high from the bud in
one year. — Reporter.
THE MINES
Humbug Canon.— Our old correspondent
; "Hydraulic’’ favors us with the following
items:
| “Dr. Ililder is vigorously prosecuting his
tunnel, and expects to get in after a few
months. He has had harder rock to encoun
ter than any other person in this vicinity,
: but he has manifested great zeal and perse
verance, and will, in time, be amply reward
ed. Concerning the claims about his ground
lam not well enough posted to give any
| particulars; but they are pretty nearly ail
washing, and reported to be doing well.
Next come the claims of Dr. Gillespie, who
would have been ready to wash before this
; but fora serious accident, namely,—the ca
ving of his shaft and filling in of his tunnel.
It will probably be cheaper for him to run a
new tunnel than to re-open the old one.
Next comes Manzanita Hill, which can
safely be called the best bill on this cajnon.
M heeler & Co., on the extreme north side of
the hill, have just commenced washing and
cleaned up sls per day to the hand, above
expenses. They use on!}' eighty inches of
water, 1 believe. Next iu order is the New
York Co., which has been for the hist six
months running a tunnel that is just com
pleted, also a shaft connecting with tire
same, 120 feet eleep. The tunnel is 550 feet
long and as straight as an arrow. The men
composing this company are mostly English
men, all practical miners and honest, hard
working men. Judging from the way their
claims used to pay, before they enjoyed the
present advantages, they ought to yield now
$25 per day to the hand. The owners in
tend to use 300 inches of water during next
summer. These claims tire valued at £B,OOO
for one-fourth, and are cheaper at that than
any set of diggings on San Juan Hill.
Now for "old Joe’s claims,” adjoining the
New York Co. The owners are washing and
making b.g wages-—say from §lO to £25 per
day to the share. \\ ell leave them alone in
their glory and call at Villa Ilica Hill. The
first claims we encounter are called the
"Henry claims,’’ and are now owned by
Greer, who recently bought them. I un
derstand they arc paying well. Foster & Co.,
also on this hill, are making the gravel flv,
hut what amount of money they are making |
I am unable to say.
Next comes Dutch Hill. Washing is cn- ,
tirely suspttided at present. All partita are ■
engaged running tunnels. Bates Henry is
budding an immense tail-flume ou Humbug
Canon, which will prove of great advantage
to hundreds of claims, and pay him a large i
per cenlage on his money. The reduction of i
water rates to 16$ cents has augmented the
value of claims hereabouts fully fifty per |
c ent.
Since writing the above I learn that Has- !
kell Co., (old Joe’s claim) have cleaned
up nearly $1,500 from 4 h days run with 150 '
inches of water.”
Relief Hill. —Eight companies are wash
ing and making money, and several more
drifting and tunneling. This is a genuine !
old-fashioned mining community, so we are
informed, and representative of a state of
society which has entirely ceased to exist in
most mining villages. The miners live iso
lated from the rest of the world, and card
playing and tippling are their principal
amusements. The population does not prob
ably exceed one hundred.
Speaking of the fast driving of the Over
land coaches, the San Jose Reporter says :
These dry-land clippers come and go with
a velocity which is almost incredible. The
horses are so thoroughly trained to the road,
and are so accustomed to making time at
full speed that they do not wait for the driv-
I ers to crack their whips, but at the very in
i slant the reins are tightened theystart off
iat a rnn. They do not merely lope, or can
| ter, bat they literally fly over the earth like
race horses.
Mr. S. 11. Rounds, a Californian, has m
, vented and patented an agricultural implc
, merit, which he calls a “Seed-Sower and
i Turtle-Drag,” calculated to perform at one
! motion, the operations of sowing grain or
{ any kind of seed, harrowing it in, breaking
| the lumps, and rolling or leveling the
ground. It runs on four wheels and is drawn
:by two horses. The Alta commends it as
1 labor-saving, economical, simple and strong.
Turned Up Again.— Rufus Shoemaker,
1 Esq , formerly editor of the Grass Valley
| National , ex-County Clerk, and Captain of
I the Nevada Rifles, has again taken the edi
j tonal chair of the Southern Reveille , published
at Port Gibson, Miss., his old home. Capt.
Shoemaker has a host of warm friends in
i this place and county. His good nature,
i urbanity, just dealings, and liberality en
deared him to all who knew him.— Nevada

The Democratic State Convention organ
ized on Wednesday, with Phil. Moore of Ne
vada county as President. The Legislature
adjourned over one day to give members a
chance to attend. We endeavored to learn by
telegraph if delegates to the Charleston
Convention were elected, but owing to the
storm the wires are not in condition to af
ford any intelligence. Over three hundred
delegates Mere in attendance, according to
the Union.
' The management of the State prison of
Oregon, is free!}’ canvassed by the papers.
One of the convicts, W. X. Watson, writes
to a friend in San Francisco, that he is se
cretly editing one of the daily papers of
Portland, but enjoins silence upon the sub
ject “us it might injure him’’ if generally
known.
The steamer John L. Stevens arrived on
Wednesday morning, beating the mail stea
mer as usual. The latter is probably in be
fore this, and the mail for this place may be
looked for by Monday.
The Legislature has appropriated $5,000
in aid of the S. F. Orphan Asylum. There
should be aid extended to the Home of the
Inebriate, as asked.
Eighty more Indians have been slaughtered
in Humboldt county—some of them women

THE COUNTY.
M hat is Talked About. —The principal
topics of interest in our county of late have
been W ashoe, the railroad, and wagon roads.
The fact that several of our citizens, who
went to Utah poor men, comparatively speak
ing, became rich by lucky strikes or more
lucky sales, has had the natural effect to
make hundreds think there is a chance for
them to do as well. Consequently, there will
be a considerable emigration from our midst
by the opening of spring, and many arc al
ready making preparations for departure.
We think their absence will injure themselves
more than the county, and that the great
majority will return, better pleased with Cal
ifornia than ever. Those who arc successful
will come back to enjoy themselves and
build homes, and those who are not will
come in search of discarded chances.
The railroad talk is mostly confined to
Nevada and Grass Valley. People in this
part of the county do not yet see how a rai -
road by those two places could benefit a dis
trict separated from it by two lofty ridges
and profound eaiiorrs. What reception
would lie accorded the petitions praying the
legislature to authorise the county to loan
Us credit in aid of the railway., we do not
know. For one we can sec .no strong objec
tion to loaning tiro credit of the county in
the way proposed, which is merely, if the
majority of the voters consent, to guarantee
seven per cent, for thirty years on $300,000
of the capital stock of ilie projected enter
prise. We do not think this would ever cm
harass the finances of the county, and if it
insured the bait ding of the road it would
vastly aid them by increasing the amount of
taxable property and thus increasing the
revenue, yet permitting a redaction of the
rates of taxation. But tins is a subject for
future discussion. The surveyor of the route
is preparing an elaborate report, which will
embrace valuable statistics concerning the
bustness, population and resources ol our
county.
Criminal.— Andrew Scola and a Chilcno
named “Spanish Joe” have been arrested at
Nevada, on a charge of conspiracy to murder
C. H. Seymour and rob the Nebraska claims,
of which he is superintendent. Three men
have been imprisoned on a charge of robbing
the sluices of the Mammoth Pluming Co., on
Little Deer Creek; and two Chinamen were
imprisoned on a charge of burglary. The
number of prisoners in the county jail is fif
teen. Thirteen are awaiting the action of
the Court of Sessions, which meets next
Monday. These facts are condensed from
the Democrat.
A Prominent Citizen Gone.— -Mr. Edward
Kelsey, an Englishman, and a wealthy citizen
of Nevada, went out to a spring on Tuesday
morning (o dip up some water, was taken
with a fit, fell with his head and face in the
water, and was discovered by his brother
just as he was dying. The Democrat says he
had resided in the vicinity of Nevada since
1850, and bad accumulated considerable
property, being worth, perhaps, not less than
a hundred thousand dollars. He was the
owner of some six or eight fine brick build
ings on Commercial street, and was an en
terprising and useful citizen.
Grass Valley. —We learn from the National
that the Masonic and Odd Fellow s ball net
ted about SI,OOO to the societies ; that the
quartz interest is in a flourishing condition;
that the “Allison lead” gets richer as they
go down in the v**in ; that new discoveries
of great promise have been made; and that
a course of lectures, by citizens of Grass
Valley is being delivered before the Library
Association.
Democratic Convention.— The following
delegates to the State Convention were
elected by the Convention which met at Ne
vada last Saturday:
Nevada—A. T. Laird. $. W, Boring. Phil.
Moore, and J. B. Van Hagan. Grass Valley
—W. Watt, A. B. Dibble. J. R. Rush, S. D.

Dunn.
Overland Horse Expresses. —The Post
master General has decided to discontinue
the coach service between Fort Yuma and
San Diego and substitute horse service as
more economical. So far in relation to the
I action of the Government. Again, we learn
1 that R issell & Majors, Government contract
ors, intend starting a courier express be
tween St. Joseph and Carson City, which
is the eastern terminus of the California tel
egraph, by the 3d of April. Prepare. ton
orders have already been given. The dis
tance is 1,600 miles, which it is proposed to
travel in eight days, by horse relays every
twenty-five miles, thus reducing communi
cation between New York and San Francisco
i within ten days. The cost of dispatches to
I Carson City will be five dollars a piece. It
is estimated that the courier can carry thirty
pounds of matter. They are to start from
each terminus at the same time. These con
tractors have stations and horses on the
whole route, an 1 only need organization to
commence services.
Bad Effects oV Sending Latham to Wash
ington.—The St. Louis correspondent of the
Bulletin writes the following ominous para
graph, in allusion to Senator Latham:
For so young a man to fall into the offices
of Collector, Congressman, Governor and
Senator in so short a time, is thought a little
remarkable, and Latham is universally pro
nounced a lucky dog. Our political fledg
lings have conceived a high admiration for
California. “That’s the State!” they ex
claim, “where a fellow to get office is not re
quired to be gray-headed I” Look out for an
inroad of young Virginians ! We can spare
enough from Missouri alone to devastate
California politically, from Los Angeles to
the Sierra Nevada.
The San Francisco Bulkhead has again
reared its awful front in the Legislature, and
been referred to a committee.

CAUTION.
It has come to my knowledge, that parties in San
Francisco have resorted to tiie base artifice of attemp
ting to forge my label, with some slight alterations,
using the name “Dm-at's” instead of “DALY’S
Aromatic Valley Whiskey, ’’and also using
tlm word -Cumberland,” instead of “Monouga-’
hela.”
These Bogus Labels have been put on bottles of erf
tirely different shape from mine, containing the com
monest trash, and packed in cases, intended to imitate
and branded similar to tiie genuine, using the name
“Delay’s” instead of ‘ ‘Daly’s”,
Dealers in the interior as well as consnmoos are cau
tioned not to be imposed upon by this Bogus article.
Particular attention is called to the shape of my Bot
tle. which is unlike any other, and also to the name
“William 11. Daly, New York,” blown in
each Bottle.
1 have no fears of this or any other spurious article ’
interfering with Hie sale of my
Aromatic Talley Whiskey
lint I cannot allow such a base fraud th be practiced *
upon honest Merchants and the unsuspecting Cor.Su*-'
mer without noticing it.
