B. P. AVEBY, SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1860 Xi. P. PISHEB, No Washington street San Francisco, is our only authorized Agent for that city. BANDAL&CO., 61 D street Marysville, are an tburized to recoive advertisements and subscrip tion* lor the I'rcss at that place. A. BADLAM is authorized to receive advertise meats and subacriptious for this paper in Sacra mento. Relief Measures at North San Juan.— The report telegraphed from Downieville on Tuesday last, that 1200 armed; Indians were in Long Valley intending to attack the set tlements in Sierra Valley, and that they had possession of the northern passes, created a great sensation in ibis town. Groups of men discussing the ominous news filled the prin ciple street during the entire afternoon.— Early in the evening the ; brass band repaired to Culver’s balcony, and attracted by its stir ring strains a large crowd, which was called to order by R. H. Farqubar, Esq., who briefly stated the necessity which seemed to exist for taking measures to assist our country men in Western Utah, and then moved that Jos. Kntz, Esq., be called to the chair. Mr. Kutz was elected chairman, and the meeting then proceeded, without any tiresome and needless speech making, to appoint commit tees for the purpose of procuring subscrip tions of money, arms, amunition and ani mals, and to ascertain who would volunteer to convey supplies across the mountains.— S. S. Lewis, C. Schardin and A. Fraser were appointed a committee on subscriptions ; and 0. Evans, L. H. Fowler and B. P. Avery on arms, amunition, &c. The meeting then adjourned for half an hour, at the end of which time the committees reported that they had raised SSOO in cash, could procure j about 21 rifles, and that at least 20 men had volunteered for service. Some of the volun teers bad horses, and those who had not were supplied by the liberality of citizens. Mr. O. Evans furnished two, Mr. A. Fraser, J. F. Clark and others one each, and Smith k Low tendered the free use of the horses in : their livery stables, to convey volunteers and | supplies as far as Forest City. The meeting then adjourned till 81 o’clock next morning. Jo the morning the town was full of excite ment. A considerable crowd was met to see the volunteers off. The sum of S6OO 50 had been raised in all, and the contributions of animals, blankets and arms, would swell the amount of material aid furnished by this place to $1,200 or $1,500. The volunteers, about twenty in number, effected no organi zation here, but proceeded at once to Forest City, with the intention of there buying what supplies were needed, and attaching themselves to some company already organ ized, unless they could overtake Mr. N. C. Miller, who bad preceded them, in which «veot they would put themselves under his charge as directed by the meeting, he being a gentleman of military experience, bravery and sound judgement. Several small par ties followed these during the day, including five good fellows from Columbia Hill, who went to Forest City with arms and blankets on foot. The total number of volunteers from this vicinity, could not have been less than thirty. The following are all the names that could be ascertained: N. C. Miller, R. M. Smith, Jos. Kenville, Jno. Beard, James McLennan, J. Donahue, R. W. Wilson, N. B. Isaman, Jno. Barber, S. Beard, W. M. Saxton, SamT Winnns, L. H. Fowler, Geo. Douglas, P. McAllister, Wm. Read, R. Quinton, T. H. Good, Brown Ogle, J. Brookshaw, Frank Murray, P. J. Bagby, Daniels. The volunteers all met at Forest City, equipped themselves, elected L. H. Fowler as Captain, chose a Secretary and Treasurer and pushed on for Western Utah by the Hen ness Pass. They left Forest City on Thurs day. Mr. Miller had probably gone through, finding the route perfectly safe, and is no doubt at Carson or Virginia City before this. From all that we are told by parties who have crossed the mountains this week, we conclude that the various routes to Utah are all clear of hostile Indians, and that there is really no danger to travelers on the eastern slope outside of the Pyramid Lake country. There is infinitely more alarm felt in Cali fornia than at Washoe. Can it be Trce? —We are told by several persons just returned from Virginia City, that the Indians at Pyramid Lake sent a mes senger with a flag of truce to meet the armed party of whites that went to attack them, and that this messenger was ruthlessly shot down without parley, whereupon a fight en sued at once. If this is true—though we cannot so believe—the act was most das tardly and disgraceful. Killing the bearer of a flag of truce is a crime of damnable in famy, and one that has seldom been com mitted by civilized people. History records such cowardly barbarism only to hold it up to execration. The perpetrator of it in this instance, if it really was perpetrated, must hare been some irresponsible bally acting upon a reckless and heated impulse, and he should have been instantly shot down by his companions. Such an example would have conciliated the Indians, and might have led to a peaceful termination of the meeting, in stead of to such a bloody one as swiftly fol lowed. If we could credit the tale, it would nearly deprive us of sympathy for the vic tims of the red man’s vengeance. It is com mon talk throughout Nevada and Sierra counties, and our only object in giving it the prominence of newspaper mention is to afford an opportunity for its prompt refuta tion If false. Our Chickens Returning to Roost, The massacre of scores of our countrymen and friends by exasperated Indians hi West ern Utah, has stirred the sympathies of every Californian and created a deeper popular excitement than toe State ever knew before. We are therefore in a proper condition to appreciate the enormity of the outrages per petrated by our own race on the aborigines everywhere, and especially in California.— In the midst of our execrations at the red man’s cruelty, we cannot avoid remembrance of that inhuman slaughter at Humboldt Bay, when the Christian Sabbath was polluted by the butchery of women and babes hud dled in unprotected groups. We must recol lect the remorseless massacre committed by Jarboe’s band.and the hundred similar deeds that are less notorious. If the Indians of Utah slay the innocent and defenceless, they are only imitating our example. If the rifle and the scalping knife have been busy among our inoffensive kindred, it is only our chickens coming home to roost, after all. But the Pah-Utcs are not without some justification in their warfare upon the whites. They have been dispossessed of their lands without compensation, and even crowded from the reservations set apart for them by government. There have not been wanting, also, brutal whites to commit numerous acts of private robbery and violence upon them, such as driving off their horses and wantonly killing some of their number. Is it wonder ful that their well known friendship, so for bearing though so much imposed upon, should change to hate, and that they should at last turn and sting us with the indiscrim inate fury of savages ? It is right for us to remember these things, to ask ourselves these questions and to temper our rage with justice. Our plain duty, of course, is to de fend our own race, bnt not to pursue our wronged foes to the bitter end. Force them to sue for peace, and then see that they have their rights secured to them by our own ac tion if not by that of the general govern ment. Indian affairs on the western side of the continent have been miserably managed.— Had the reservations been protected against the depredations of unscrupulous whites, who are more pestiferous than the Indian, and had stockade forts been established along the line of settlements in Western Utah, as well as at intervals on the great emigrant route, hundreds of valuable lives would have been saved and the present se rious conflict prevented. The extreme ne cessity of these measures has always been felt on this coast and repeatedly urged upon the authorities at Washington, who will now be forced to do at enormous expense what might have been sooner done cheaply. In stant and vigorous steps must be taken fur the protection of the emigration now on its way, and which will be liable to destruction in detail should existing hostilities continue and spread. If government does not move in the matter, Californians must go to the defence of their coming kindred. The Trcckee Turnpike. —This important enterprise, which is destined to make the Henness Pass route the most popular high way across the mountains, is being steadily prosecuted, in spite of late storms and ru mors of war. Freeman has completed a contract of 340 rods this side of Bope’s ranch, and Mr. Wood has nearly completed his con tract for grading around Gold Spring Hill.— By next Saturday, over five miles of entirely new grading will have been finished, besides much efficient repairing and improvement along the old grade. By that time, also, the turnpike will be in complete order to Fercst City. Thence the work will be extended by the early part of June to Middle Waters, and a new road graded down the south side of the ridge to the Middle Yuba at Milton. Mr. A. Fraser will proceed to make a survey of the route from this point to Trnckee Mea dows next week. By the first of June a toll gate will be established at Bope’s Ranch, and the receipts there will speedily amount, it is estimated, to SBOO or 1,000 a month, which will be a very handsome interest on the capital stock of $30,000. The tolls will be appropriated towards the construction of the road until its completion, and will make the assessments quite easj'. Our cotempo raries will perceive that a good wagon road through the Henness Pass, on a direct liue from Marysville to Trnckee Meadows, via North San Juan and Forest City, is a sure thing. Overtaken'. —We learn from Mr. C. Schar din, who accompanied the San Juan com pany to Forest City and rode from thence towards Jackson’s ranch in hopes of over taking Mr. Miller, that he caught up with the latter at Milton. Mr. Miller expected to overtake the Nevada compaay on Thursday, and would induce them to wait for the San Juan boys and others from La Porte. Mr. Scbardin had a hard jaunt from Forest City through patches of deep snow, and returned with a swollen face and sore body. He says some Indians had really been in Long Valley, where they left a flag, which was understood to mean that they claim the land and will fight for it. This valley is about sixty miles long, and leads to Honey Lake Valley. It is one vast meadow, set deep in the moun tains, and quite level. The Indians might be at the head of it and still far away from any stations or trails of white mem CewLOGiCAL.—It is said that cows will yield more of the lacteal fluid when milked in silence.— Hydraulic Frets. Don’t believe it. We knew a girt ‘tn ham who when milking used to sing, ‘So Teeny, wo Teeny, my pretty cow stand still,’ and maybe she couldn’t extract the lacteal fluid! ' •-*' ' *v- w »- Mountain Messenger. • Indian Troubles in Utah- Since last Sunday, the people of Califor nia, who have six or eight thousand friends and relathes in the silver regionsot Western Utah, have been terribly excited by a stlc cession of telegraphic reports from that ter ritory, to the effect that a powerful league of Indians had taken up the hatchet and commenced merciless war The number of aborigines in arms is generally stated at 500, and this figure is not perhaps too small; though it has been put up as high as 2,000. The first hostile demonstration, as published in our telegraphic dispatch a week since, was the burning of the house of one Wil liams at the sink of Carson river and mas sacre of seven whites thereat. A band of some 500 Pah-Utes, Shoshones and Smoke Creek Indians, was reported to be marching towards the settlements on the Carson and in the Washoe region. Great apprehensions of an attack were reported to exist at Genoa, Carson City, Virginia City and other towns in the diggings, and volunteer companies were immediately formed and equipped at Carson City and V irginia for the purpose of driving back the foe. Eighty mounted men from the former place and twenty-six from the latter, started towards the Pyramid Lake country, some sixty miles north, where the Indians were said to be and where they were really met on the 12th inst. The accounts of the fight that ensued differ materially.— Those first received allege that the Indians fired from an ambush. This seemed improb able, (or the country there is open and free from any larger vegetation than sage brush. Subsequent accounts represent the whites to have been the attacking party. They charged the Indian lines and broke them, repeatedly, but were finally compelled to retreat, either from failure of ammunition or the over whelming force of the foe, who was 500 strong, well mounted and armed with rifles. The Indians harassed the retreat of the whites for twenty miles, and were said at first to have killed about sixty of them. The little band was completely routed, lost nearly all their baggage, mules and provisions, and the survivors came straggling into the set tlements one by one. The number of dead was much exaggerated, and is not now thought to exceed twenty-five. The news of this disastrous affair naturally caused quite a panic. It was thought thou sands of Indians were on the war path and approaching from different points to attack the settlements. Farmers and miners con gregated in the towns, which were guarded by pickets, partly fortified and placed under martial law. Calls for help were sent over the wires to California and immediately res ponded to, two companies of U. S. Artillery and -Infantry, embracing 150 men being dcs patchedfrom Alcatraz Island, with 500 stand of arms and 100,000 cartridges; besides which relict meetings were held in uaany of the cities and principal towns, money sub scribed, and volunteers enlisted to convey across the mountains supplies of arms, am munition and provisions. The independent military companies of Sacramento, Marys ville, Nevada and Coloma were ordered by the Secretary of State, for the Governor, to bold themselves in readiness for duty, and those of Nevada and Downieville actually started for the scene of trouble. If arms and ammunitions bad been plentiful in the moun tains, many hundreds if not thousands of brave hearts and stout arms would have poured into Western Utah within the next forty-eight hours after the news of the de feat of their countrymen reached them. The next exciting rumors from the other slope represented that 1200 Indians had pos session of Long Valley, which is north-east of Downieville and near the settlements in Sierra Valley, aud that the Henness Pass, which route the Nevada volunteers were traveling, was blocked by them. This, if true, indicated a wide spread and deeply laid scheme on the part of the Indians, and seemed to render the raising of a large force on this side urgently necessary. The report proved to bo false, as pack trains subse quently came across by the Heuness Pass and Long Valley as usual. The proportions of the entire outbreak ap pear to have been greatly exaggerated, and the common dread in Western Utah, as here, of a general war, nearly baseless. There is no reliable evidence that the Indians have extended their depredations beyond the Pyr amid Lake country, nor that they contem plate molesting the settlements. All the routes from here there are open, and hare been traveled in safety during the past week. The sole motive of the Pah-Utes, so far, seems to have been to expel from Pyramid Lake Valley the intruders whom they for bade coming there and warned to leave by a certain date. They were in arms to protect themselves against what the}’ considered ag gression. It is not certain that they would have fought the party which proceeded against them, if a fight had not been forced upon them. There should at least have been an attempt sjade to parley with them, and to investigate the circumstances of the mas sacre at Williams’ bouse. The whole diffi culty appears to us to have resulted origin ally from the intrusions of reckless whites upon their property, and secondarily from the too common custom which oar country men have of assuming on all occasions of difference that the savage or inferior race must be in the wrong and should be licked. If wise counsels are followed now, and no rash and wholesale slaughter of the Indians precede them, we hope and believe that fur ther bloodshed, or at least protracted hos tilities, can be prevented. Col. Lander is not afraid to go among the Pah-Utes with his small squad of road surveyors, just as if nothing had happened. If clear-headed and just commissioners were appointed to treat with the Indians, we feel confident, from what we know of the race, that present diffi culties could be amicably settled, and an important territory restored to that peace which it 50 much needs. Tribute of Respect to Henry Meredith. At a meeting of the members of the Bar of Nevada county, on Tuesday, May 15th, 1860, on motion of D. Belden, Esq., announcing the death of Henry Meredith, late member of the Nevada bar, His Horror, Niles Searls, District Judge, was chosen Chairman, and Thomas P. Hawley, Esq , as Secretary of the meeting. On motion, A. B. Dibble, J. R. McConnell arrd D. Belden, were appointed a committee to draft resolutions expressive of the feelings of sorrow, by the members of the Nevada bar, upon the death of Henry Meredith. J. R. McConnell, Esq., on behalf of said committee, presented the following resolu tions, and moved their adoption : Resolved , That among the many afflictive dispensations with which it has pleased God to visit us from time to lime, We are especi ally called upon to deplore the death of Henry Meredith, Esq., late a member of the Nevada bar, who lost his life on the 12th of the present month, wfiileengaged in the de fence of the people of Utah Territory against the savages.

Resolved , That these resolutions be pre sented in open Court with a request to his Honor the presiding Judge, that they be en tered upon the records of the District Court of Nevada county, and that copies thereof be transmitted to the relatives of deceased.

McConnell, Belden, Hill and Hawley, the resolutions Were unanimously adopted, and, on motion, were ordered to be signed by the chairman and secretary and published in the newspapers of Nevada county, and also in Union and Standard of Sacramento. The meeting then adjourned. NILES SEARLS, Ch n. Thos. P. Hawley, Sec’y. Eastern.—The last Pony Express came through, unmolested by Indians, in eight days and four hours. It brought tidings that the Charleston Convention had adjturned without making any nominations. The refusal of the Convention to adopt certain resolutions favoring Congressional legislation for the protection of slave property in the territories caused delegates from eight Southern States to withdraw and form a separate convention, which adjourned to meet at Washington June 11th. The regular Cdhvenlion bal loted for a Presidential candidate 57 times, Douglas receiving a clear majority, but bating to get the re quired vote of two-thirds. An adjournment to the 18th of June, place 15a timore, was then agreed to. Previous reports of the Sayers and lloenan fight are confirmed. It is thought they will tight again.

Yet Madam credit what I say: Were all the troops drawn in array And I this instant called away, I’d rather stay with you.

Marysville Express. Attempt to Murder. —Tuesday night about 9 o’clock as Mr. Oagne, of the Deer Creek House, was setting by the stove, a man opened the door and asked for some water. Mr. Oagne raised up to get the wa ter when another man laid a gun across the arm of the man who opened the door, and fired, missing Mr. 0. and throwing fifteen buckshot into the wall. Had Mr. 0. remained in the position in which he was when the door was opened, he would most certainly have hern shot. The men. supposing they had killed Mr. Oagne, fled. They were so near to him that the powder burned nis neck as well as that of another person who sat near him. This account is from the Marysville Ex press. The Appeal says the men were recog nised although their faces were blacked. The Best Mountain Route. —A corres pondent of a Nevada contemporary writing from Virginia City, speaks as follows of the Henness Pass route ; There is a very good feeling here in favor of the Henness Pass route, and you will find quite an acquisition to the trade and travel of Nevada ; I may say, almost immediately. This may be considered a substantial mining country, not one for a day, month, or year, but for a life time, so there need be no hes itancy in investing capital in a good toll road through the Henness Pass. ; .*. Tornado at Virginia City.— Dispatches from Virginia City inform us that a tornado visited that place on the evening of the 10th instant. The crash of falling buildings was heard on all sides. It appeared to he a whirlwind, with a diameter varying from fifty to two hundred feet, and sweeping first in one direction and then in another. No lives were lost, and no material injury done to persons. The loss is estimated at §lO,OOO Thirty frame houses and twenty-five tents were destroyed. The Colorado Desert was doubtless an an cient lake—has its well defined shores. Ma rine and fresh water, and terrestial fossils are found in great quantities. The soil is the richest in nature—an alluvium of un known depth. The overflow was in July.— After this, Mr. Smith saw weeds growing on the Desert four inches in diameter. He thinks it the finest cotton and sugar land in the Union. The climate is more tropical than that of Florida. The palms are indigenous. The silt deposited this year in many places on the terrace is one inch thick. Only irri gation is needed to make the whole desert prolific. Golden Trout.— Large numbers of the finest trout are caught in Gold Lake each week and sold iu Pownieville. They are caught in a seine.— Citizen.
