The Pony Express arrived at Carson City
on Monday last with dates from St. Louis to
the 28th of April, four days proceedings of
the Charleston Convention -and an account
of the great prize fight between lleenan and
Sayers. But for an interruption of tele
graphic communication between St. Joseph
and St. Louis we should probably have had
the full proceedings of the Charleston Con
tention ; as it is, the nominee of the Democ
racy for the next Presidential fight is not
yet known on the Pacific. Douglas 1 friends
evidently had control of the convention, and
If the two-third rule did not slaughter him
he was probably nominated. It is supposed
that a platform endorsing that made at Cin
cinnati and leaving the rights of slavehold
ers in the Territories to be settled by the
courts, would be adopted. On the more
important subject of the prize fight the pa
pers tell us that Hcenen and Sayers fought
thirty-nine rounds in two hours and eight
minutes, Sayers drawing the first blood and
lleenan achieving the immortal honor of the
first knock down. Heenan was evidently
the best man, but at the last round be got
Sayers’ head “in chancery,” when the crowd
broke in the ring and stopped the fight, ma
king it a draw game. We are told that at
the last round both men went to grass. It
is a great pity they did not go to grass be
fore the first one.
Map or Central California.—We are in
debted to Mr. Geo. W . Welch, of Nevada,
for a copy of a handsome lithographic map
of which he is the publisher. It embraces
the counties of Plumas, Sierra, Nevada,Pla
cer, Eldorado and Sacramento, and shows
the different railroad lines completed and
projected in those counties, as well as the
various northern wagon road routes and
trails across the Sierra Nevada; all compiled
by S. G Elliott, who made the preliminary
survey for the Auburn and Nevada railway.
On the same sheet are given statistic s of the
popnlation and resources of the counties
named and principal towns in the same, - sta
tistics of the railroads of New York and
Massachusetts; tables of distances in the
State and of the various routes surveyed for
a trans-continental railroad, and profiles of
theHenness Pass railroad survey and of the
Placervillc road to Carson Valley. The work
is embellished with views of Sacramento,
Folsom, Auburn. Grass Valley and Nevada,
and a fancy sketch of a train of cars rush
ing through a mountain gorge. It is a very
creditable and useful publication, and will
do much to attract public attention to the
importance of opening up the region repre
sented to railway communication. Copies
ean ho procured of Mr. Welch at the low
price of four dollars.
The appropriations made by the late Leg
islature amount to $1,464,587, as footed up
by the Union; but $694,405 of this was for
the current expenses of the government,
$275,000 for the payment of the twenty -
seven months arrearages due the State Pris
on Contractor, SIOO,OOO for the erection, or
commencement rather, of a State Capitol,
aid 0® for the Reform School. The
miscellaneous appropriations amount, then,
to $365,182, which is more than the treas
ury could well afford to spare but hardly en
ough to justify the sweeping charges of un
paralleled extravagance made against the
defunct Legislature.
At the Nevada municipal election last
Monday, the following city officers were
elected: Trustees, John Williams, Chn’s.
Kent, T. H. Rolfe, John Webber, R. S. Lind
sey; Marshal, 17. S. Gregory; Treasurer, T.
W. Davenport; Assessor, A. P. Church.—
Rolfe and Church belong to the Democrat of
fice—sign that printatorial talent is appreci
ated at Nevada, though not ns fully as it
enght to be, for Bro. Waite was defeated on
the Trustee ticket. He would have made a
splendid “city dad.”
The Tnvsntoh of the Hydraulic Process.
—We are informed by a friend that Mr. Mat
tfeon, who originated in this county the
hydraulic process of mining, is still engaged
ia mining operations in the upper portion of
the county, and has lately perfected a wheel
to clear flumes of the leaves, sticks and other
trash which float on the wafer. He is an
ingenius man, and the hydraulic process
atone has better entitled him to reward from
the State than if he had discovered a thous
and mines.
The Hesperian. —The May number of this
pleasing periodical contains an excellent
portrait on steel of Gen. Scott, executed by
our old friend Entire, of New York, who is
not surpassed in portrait engraving any
where. After this are some floral illustra
tions. The literary contents are varied and
embrace contributions from Ridge, Hittel,
“Old Block,” Sproat, Bowman and others.—
The editor, Mrs. Day, who is stiß at the East,
contributes a pleasing letter descriptive of
revolutionary relics found in her old home.
At Poverty Bar, lately, one hundred and
fifty men marched into a circus tent with a
earn phene can each, for a seat. What they
saved by not paying for box seats was ex
panded fbr seven kegs of lager bier, which
beverage was consumed in the tent. We
get this droll ft«a from the Independent,
Ofl Tuesday evening last Sfiss Jlanson, the
tttmce median), delivered a lecture to 4 res
pectable audience in this place, on the - sub
ject of Good and Evil. A slender, graceful,
flaxen haired woman, plainly clad in black
silk, she seated herself behind a small table
at the front of the stage in the theater ; fixed
her large glittering eyes on space for a few
moments, closed them at last, swayed her
head slightly as it in sleep, then arose slowly
and proceeded to speak as never man or
woman spake before in this mountain vil
lage. Her words flowed right on, steadily
and musically; sometimes uttered with the
fine, soft intonations of pathos and often
with the earnest strength of elevated thought.
The audience listened as to the vaticinations
of a blind sybil, or as if they believed a
spirit was really breathing in their ears awe
some words from the worll beyond.
The lecture began with a concise state
ment of Christian theology as the basis of
popular notions concerning right and wrong,
characterizing it as false and unnatural and
presenting an ignoble idea of Divinity. The
spirit supposed to be speaking through the
medium then gave fiis notions of good and
evil, commencing with an account of the
origin and growth of our planet, Which
seemed based upon the atomic philosophy,the
doctrine of eternity the and inherent vitality
of matter and the theory of progressive de
velopment. The idea was advanced and
elaborated that all creation is but the benev
olent thought ot an omnipotent, omnipres
ent, omniscient God, and is steadily ad
vancing to a condition of ultimate perfection,
or undisturbed harmony. Every form of
mineral, vegetable and animal life is strug
gling forand attaining a higher development,
or unfoldmont, and whatever prevents such
development is what we call evil. The co
hesive power that prevents the solid rock
from decomposing and assuming the higher
form of soil, to which it aspires or is des
tined, is evil just as much as the gross pas
sions which deter humanity from virtue.—
An influence that deprives a plant of needed
light is quite as malign, abstractly speaking,
as one that blights the soul of a man.
It is the conflict of opposites which produces
harmonious results. But good and evil are
only relative terras : neither exists positive y
and detcrminatc-Iy. The good of to-day may
be the evil of to-morrow. Under the opera
tion of the eternal law of progressive change,
that condition which was favorable to devel
opment yesterday may retard it to-day. As
in the physical, so in the moral world. Ev
ery error is then but an approximate to
truth ; every wrong hastens the ultimate
triumph of right. The best human belief is
but error, blindly, though honestly perhaps,
groping for the truth. It is only what is
false in all systems that separates them : re
move that and they will harmonise, for “the
actual true is the sum of all these,” just as
the perfect planet is formed by the congre
gation of separate atoms.
From such opinions as these, though
broadly stated and clearly illustrated by sci
entific facts, thc-lecturcr deduced a beauti
ful lesson of charity towards man and faith
in God, urging sclf-culturc as the highest
duty of reasonable creatures and as the only
avenue to that heaven which exists in and
for every human soul. Development is the
law and the reward of humanity, and each
step we make in it opens a way for progress
to every creature below us. Although at
variance with the dogmas of traditional and
formalistic theology, the lecture was emi
nently religious, and breathed much of the
devotional and affectionate spirit of woman.
If some parts of it were more fanciful and
speculative than philosophical and demon
strable, they were yet transfused with such
an earnestness and benevolence as made
them harmonise with the general design.—
All of the audience who listened attentively
and intelligently could not but have been
inspired with exalted sensations, and must
have gone home feeling belter and happier.
Whatever we may think of tire truth or error
of the particular doctrines advanced—and
which were novel to those only who had
seldom done their own thinking—we believe
such lectures, if frequently repeated in this
community, cither from the polpit or else
where, would increase the general stock of
virtue; (or that cannot be immoral in its ten
dency which stimulates the intellect, and
teaches faith, hope and charity.
We have not attempted to give a synopsis
of Miss Munson’s lecture, but rather a brief
statement of the impression it made. Its
effect was increased by the aid of most cor
rect language, sweet and graceful elocution,
logical arrangement, verbal felicity and un
exceptional personal demeanor. There were
about her none of the repulsive features of
the strong-minded woman of popular preju
dice. Her auditors saw simply an intellec
tual lady talking calmly yet earnestly on
high themes to a circle of friends. She will
speak here again in a few weeks, and our
readers who did not Bear her last Tuesday
will then have an opportunity to lest the ac
curacy of these comments.
A considerable emigration of gold seekers
is setting in towards Mono Lake. An ex
change says the diggings are mostly super
ficial but extensive, and that they are worked
pretty much after the primitive California
methods. They lie some six or seven miles
north of the lake, in some low mountains
running east from the base of the Sierra
Nevada. The mountains, creeks, ravines,
and gulches are a coarse granite from the
surface to the bed rock; the bed rock is also
a eoarse and rough granite.
Jarvis' ranch, in the mining region of Tu
olumne county, embraces an enclosed area
of about 600 acres containing near 15,000
fruit trees of various kinds, all of which are
watered from springs that bubble up through
the marble substratum which underlies a
considerable part of the comity.
The Columbia Hill Cinnabar. — On our
first page will be found an account of a visit
to the locality of the reported quicksilver
discovery near Columbia Hill. The substance
Called cinnabar we think to be nothing more
than the decomposed surface of slate rock,
forming a tlay and reddened by oxide of
iron. It would probably make good bricks,
but we failed to wring any quicksilver from
it. Others have been more fortunate with
out doubt, for they so declare, and the soft
rock is still believed to be cinnabar. Some
of it has been sent to Nevada to be assayed.
Since writing the article above alluded to,
we have been informed that the ravine in
which the “lead” was struck was mined for
gold as long ago as 1853 'quicksilver being used
and likely wasted. Some of this quicksilver
probably permeated the decomposed rock,
became divided into minute globules, and
has thus deceived and excited a whole com
But the discovery of rich quarts near Co
lumbia Hill,- elsewhere mentioned, is no
mistake. Other specimens are exhibited
which contain numerous golden specks. A
small sack full of dirt obtained from the
outcroppings and panned out yielded one
dollar and twenty cents. It is strange that
quartz leads were not long ago found and
worked on the ridge between the Middle and
South \uba. Every ridge north and south
of it abounds in paying ledges, and doubt
less this will prove to be like them as soon
as attention is turned in that direction.
llknxess Pass.—We notice in the Nevada
Democrat a statement that Sale’s pack train
had succeeded in getting through this pass
to the eastern slope, and would hereafter
make regular trips that waj’. A gentleman
from Virginia City thinks this a mistake, and
assures us Mr. Sale was unable to open a
trail for his animals and finally crossed by
thc Jamison rorrte. But wo are inclined to
think the Democrat is not mistaken. Mr.
Smith, who has been driving a passenger
train by the Jamison route went np on Wed
nesday to ascertain whether it is practicable
to attempt opening the Hcnness Pass forth
with, and if he decides that it is the thing
will be done. Doubtless a trail can be made
by the two trains in conjunction, unless the
storm now raging has deposited another
thick snow bed.
There is likely to be two good wagon roads
leading from Nevada county to the Henrress
Pass—the Tnrckce Turnpike, which is now
vigorously under way, a San Juan enterprise,
and the Hcnness Pass Turnpike, soon to be
commenced, and which originated at the
county seat. These roads arc both needed,
whether Washoe w a humbug or not (but it
is not) and will contribute immensely to the
convenience and prosperity of the ehizerrs of
Sierra and Nevada counties. Good speed to
both. The Hcnness Pass Tnrnpike begins
on this ridge, at Eureka South, about twenty
four miles from San Juan, and some day we
hope to sec the road connecting this place
with it much improved by our business men
who desire to enlarge their circle of trade.
Indmx Troubles is Washoe.—On the 9th
inst., we received from our townsman J. B.
Low, who is a 5 Carson City, a telegraphic
dispatch informing us that the day previous
the house of Williams at the sink of Carson
river had been burned by Indians and seven
white men massacred. The Indians—Pah-
Utabs-were reported to be 500 strong, armed
and advancing from 26 mile desert towards
the settlements near Carson City. There
was reason to suppose other solitary houses
bad been visited by the savages and their
occupants murdered. The intelligence cre
ated a great excitement. The women and
children were removed from Chinatown to
Devil's Gate, which place is fortified, and
two or three hundred men, armed and equip
ped, had gone from Carson City and Virginia
to meet the Indians. A dispatch dated the
same day and addressed to the Sacramento
Union , says 08 mounted riflemen had left
that place up to 8 o’clock, p. m., and thirty
five more were going. As the Pah-Utahs
are said to be a superior race it is to be
feared our friends across the mountains will
have to do some severe fighting to subdue
them. Active preparations are going on for
the defence of the settlements. The Indians
are reported to have fortified Eagtown and
threat*® a big fight.

Nevada Journal.—This vigorous, out

eleventh volume. Long life and prosperity
to it. Bro. Waite, its editor, has been try

Another Pony Express.—A project is on
foot in Nevada to establish a Pony Express
between that place and Carson City. The
Democrat says;
We learn that sufficient stock has already
been subscribed to carryout the enterprise.
The intention is to connect Nevada with the
Overland Pony Express at Carson City.—
Competent judges say that tire disfhnee'be

hours, and by this means Nevada will he

Vaccination.—The Grass Valley Motional
cautions parents and others not to permit
vaccination of their children or themselves
by any but respectable physicians, and gives
this instance as a warning :
A child recently vaccinated by a traveling
pseudo-doctor, dentis*, etc , has lately prac

hard-working man in this town named Elli
son, causing erysipelas, subsequent convul
