NORTH SAN JUAN, FEB. 2, 1861-
L. P. FISHER, No 171J4 Washington street Han
Francisco, is our only authorized Agent for that
city.
RANDAL & CO., 61 D street Marysville, are'an
thorized to receive advertisements and subscrip
tions forthe I'ress at that place.
Tub Law op Newspapers. — l. Subscribers
who do not give express notice to the contrary
are considered as wishing to continue their
subscription.
2. If subscribers order their paper Stopped,
publishers may continue to send it till all
charges are paid.
3. If subscribers neglect or refuse'to take
their papers from the office or place to which
they are sent, They are held responsible
until they settle their bill and give notice to
’discOrftrnne them.
4. If subscribers move to other places,
without informing the publishers, and the
paper is sent to its former direction, they
are held responsible. Notice should always
; be given of removal.
5 Postmasters failing to give notice with
in three months, of the failure of a suoscri
‘her to call for his payer, is liable for the
amount of the subscription.
The courts have decided that refusing to
take a paper or periodical from theolfi-e. or
removing and leaving it uncalled for, is prima
facia evidence of fraud.
Postrna'sters would oblige by a strict
fulfillment of the regulations requiring them
to notify publishers, once in three months,
■of papers not taken from their office by sub
scribers.
Under the law of Congress, paper? are not
•charged postage in the comities in which they
•are .published.
In No Hurry.— Two or three different reso
lutions offered in the Assembly for the holding
•of a Joint Convention to choose a United States
Senator, have been tabled. It is evident that the
three parties mistrust each other. Neither has
votes sufficient to elect. Each hopes to find a
man better and stronger in talents and personal
influence than has yet offered himself, and is
determined not to hazard atrial until thochances
•are more flattering for success.
The result will probably be, that the Douglas
party will present some conservative man, who
will pledge himself not to interpose any factions
opposition to Mr. Lincoln’s administration, and
•who is besides known to be a good Union and
Pacific Railroad man—upon whom a sufficient
number of Republicans will unite to elect.
In order to effect this arrangement further time
will be required. The politicians must feel each
other’s pulses, and set their wires. The aspi
rants want some assurances, and when all these
necessary details have been arranged, a success
ful effort will be made choose a Senator.
[Ut'Spangxes says it is his deliberate opinion
that if Old Buck had got up a war with Spain, a
short time back, when there was sofinean oppor
tunity, and seized upon Cuba; thrashed the
Central Americans out of their boots few the
Panama massacre ; or even conquered the insig
nificant Paraguayans when his squadron was
sent against them, there would have been-no se
cession outcry. Republics are always warlike,and
their people excitable. They must cither have a
■common enemy to fight with, or they will go to
■cutting each other’s throats —as, witness the his
tory of the numerous barricades in Paris. But
Napoleon understood the French temperament.
On one occasion, when a commotion wa« threat
ened, he said to the painters, “Go—guild the
tower of Notre Dame !” The people looked out
and saw what was going on. They wore aston
ished—amused—interested—and the storm was
happily averted Why didn’t the President ex
claim, “Bring hither the scalps of ten thousand
Spanish Hidalgos !” The Boys would certainly
have brought them.
State Reform Schooe. —ln his recent an
nual message Gov. Downey recommends the
Legislature to repeal the act for the erection of
a State Reform School, and thinks the object
contemplated by its passage can be effected by
setting aside a portion of the State Prison at
San Quentin for the reception and instruction of
depraved youth. The Monitor, an excellent
Catholic paper published at San Francisco, dif
fers from His Excellency, and says:
■“Some money, it is true, may be saved to the
State by this course, but we believe it would be
fatal to the success of the institution, or the re
form of its inmates, to incorporate It with the
State Prison. The effect would be to reduce the
boys to the class and estimation of State Prison
convicts, the moral consequences of which would
follow them through life. The only chance for
such an establishment being productive of any
good, is to have it totally disconnected with, and
free from, the character of a penal institution in
Jiny form.”
We agree entirely with the Monitor. Besides,
repealing the act now, would be to entail a loss
•of fifteen or twenty thousand dollars upon the
State,
He ought To do it.— Four washerwomen of
San Francisco, have addressed a letter of griev
ance and complaint to the Call newspaper, in
■which, after stating that their children are grow
ing up in vice and idleness for want of proper
instruction, their husbands unemployed because
they can find nothing to do, and themselves
worked beyond their physical ability, to gain a
scanty support, suggest that they would like to
be furnished means to enable them to get into
the country, where they are in hopes of being
able to better their condition. They wish to
know if Thomas Starr King could not be pre
vailed upon to give a public lecture, the proceeds
of which should inure to their benefit. He ought
to do it.
UpThe Probate Court of Virginia City grant
ed two divorces at one of its recent sittings.—
Singular place to lodge the power of grauting
divorces—in a Probate Court!
CTThe Legislature has fallen into its old and
reprehensible practice of granting public officers
leave of absence from the State. Two instances
are placed on the record thus early in the session.

O’A Roman citizen, addressing his son, said,
'‘Come with me to the Senate chamber, and see
how little wisdom it requires to govern a nation.”
(Play upon the words “California Legislature.”)
The First Instance.—A Japanese merchant
arrived at San Francisco Monday last, on board
the ship Daniel Webster. He comes exclusively
for the purpose of buying a cargo of such Am
encan goods as are likely to yiel<i him a hand
some profit at home. This is the first instance
on record of a resident of Japan going outside
bis own dominions for purposes of trade.
WHAT WILL COME OP IT.
Alexander H. Stephens, of Georgia, said
truly, that “those who commence a revolu
tion seldom live (o sec it ended.” It is much
easier to overthrow a Government than to
reconstruct one from the rubbish of its fall.
Mr. Stephens felt this. Every intelligent
man who pauses to reflect must feel it.
The seedling Stales have more to appre
hend from internal than external causes.
They have rushed into a revolution without
counting the costs or having the pecuniary
ability to sustain it. The nations of the
world will regard the act as precipitate and
'not justified by the causes assigned for it.
•The seeeders will thus be deprived of foreign
sympathy, and what is much belter, foreign
'aid. The State Authorities, in most instan
ces, spoke and •acted for the people, constru
ing silence-or an unwilling consent on the
part of the latter to be a hearty' co-operatibn
in their plans. Among the first and most
obnoxious measures to which the new gov
'ernmeuts have from necessity been compelled
to resort, are forced loans. This is worse
than taxation without representation. No
enlightened people under heaven, and par
ticularly no considerable number of free
born Americans will long consent to this
species of exaction. It is contrary to their
nature, their pride and their education. In
I the present instance, the blessings to be
secured, compared with those relinquished,
do not offer a compensating remuneration.
At the first Hush, when the prime-movers
of secession are eloquent with a recital of
I tne imaginary grievances and insults sus
tained by the South ; when the prospect of
place and power is held out to those who
will never enjoy either; when the glorious
privileges to redound from an independent
Confederacy are described ; the expectants,
and even the masses, may be stirred up to a
frenzy. Those who address them are “all
honorable men,” and what they say excites
1 the feelings of the popblace, which will
blindly follow these counsels till the grand
project of disruption has been fully consum
mated ; till all retreat is cut off; till famine,
bankruptcy and starvation obtrude thefr
lank visages; then must cothe reflection,
mingled with the gall of regret. Wo unto
the Yanceys, the Rhetts, the Davises and the
Keitts in that day! An Anthony will arise
to draw aside the veil of deception and ex
hibit the min they have wrought. The
gaping wounds of a once prosperous and
glorious Government, destroyed to gratify
their hellish ambition, will cry aloud for
vengeance on the traitors !
This is a consequence which we foresee
ns legitimately flowing from these miseries,
begotten by secession and forced loans.
Private letters written by citizens of the
seceding States to their friends in the North,
go to prove that the people have net been
fully consulted on the subject of a separate
Confederacy. Many yield a constrained as
sent, and pay the exacted tribute to avoid
being noted as “suspected,” and to save their
property from confiscation. It is the promi
nent politicians, sell-constituted leaders in
the revolution., who propose and carryout
these stringent measures Does any one
suppose a people trained to the American
dei of liberty will long submit to them?
Never. Prudence demands that they should
be silent now, while overawed ; but’their day
will come, and it will oe one of fearful retri
bution. Presently a murmur will be heard.
The first reverse sustained by the new gov
ernment will increase its tone and volume.
One of the discontent* wiH shake bis bead.
Another, emboldened by the sign, will utter
ms disgust in words. Neighbor will inter
change thoughts with neighbor ; secret dubs-,
cabals, conspiracies will be formed, until a
counter-revolution has been inaugurated,
which will spend its fury upon the seceding
leaders, and compel them to lice for an asy
lum to that very Government against which
their ill-timed malignity was directed.
Well attested history, analogous in its
teachings, furnishes evidence sufficient to
stamp this view of the case with the ceftftin
v of veritable prophecy
Toe leader- of the French revolution, al
tbough a.l the omstart engaged in a better
i (Use, could not stand before the violence of
the whirlwind they had created, but went
down amid the general carnage. It would

Windy. -Jim M Dougall spoke two hours
at the meeting convened in the Assembly
i h.tmber in last Saturday evening, to hear
lie Senatorial candidates “express” them
selves. Old Kettledrum met, the covenanter,
could have spoken five times as long, and he
wonld’iit have ir.ad-e a very good Senator
either.
An Opinion as is.—-John White, a mom
b*-r of the Assembly from Shasta, has offered
three Union resolutions, and the country is
safe ! The first enunciates the doctrine that
“the Union of the Stales, under the Consti
tution, whs the result of a compromise.”
There s wisdom for you !

THE FRICTION MATCH.
It is questionable whether, in the act
igniting a friction match to light his cigar
or candle, one in a thousand was ever
prompted with sufficient curiosity to inquire
who could have been the inventor of so sim
ple and yet So- useful a convenience. His
tory cOmes to our relief with this informa
tion. To an English chemist named John
Walker, is the honor due. He made the dis
covery in 1829, which has since been greatly
improved upon by Professor Farrady, who
introduced it to popular favor, and others,
who have since added to its fame.
The Scientific American contains an arti
cle in relation to the manufacture of friction
matches, from which we make the following
interesting extract:
“The best wood for matefies is cFear white
pine, which possesses the Softness required
for the manufacturing process, together with
the necessary stiffness and inflaiutnability ;
and the quantity of this consumed iu their
manufacture is enormous. The wood is
first sawed into blocks of uniform size, and
the length of two matches. By machines
of ingenious construction, these are after
wards slit without loss of material into
splints, which being collected into bundles
and tied, are dipped into the composition,
first one end and then the other. Another
string is then fastened round them, after
which they are cut across between the two
strings by a circular saw, which divides
them in the middle. Round matches are
formed by forcing the wood endwise through
holes iu plates, which in the English works
are an inch-thick, with steel face and bell
metal back. In American establishments
tubes are employed, whether for round or
square splints The perforations are made
as near together as possible, only leaving
enough of the metal between to give the
necessary-strength for cutting. The inven
tion was patented in England in 1842.
“The acid fumes thrown off from the phos
phorous in the various processes of making
matches, frequently cabse atnong the people
employed a terrible disease which attacks
the teeth and jaws ; and to such an alarming
extent did it prevail in ‘Germany, that the
attention of the Government was called to
it The dippers are most liable to suffer in
this way, in consequence of standing for
hours over the heated slab upon which the
phosphorous is spread. As those persons
with decayed teeth are most susceptible of
the disease, they are carefully excluded from
some manufactories. No antidote has as yet
been discovered to this terrible disease. Its
natural course is to rot the entire jaw bone
away This generally occupies several years
with a steady discharge of matter outside
and into tire mouth. The pain is not very
acute, but is constant, and the sufferer sel
dom survives the natural course of this dis
ease. Many operations have been performed,
chiefly by Dr. .Mott, at the New York Hospi
tal. In some cases the entire jaw bone, and
in others only one half or one side of the
jaw has been removed. By this process the
disease is arrested, and the patients generally
recover. Thorough ventilation and careful
attention to cleanliness have been found the
most effectual preventives.
“It is a fact worthy of notice, that insig
nificant as matches are, it is a matter of im
portance, on accountofthe immense numbers
made, that the manufactories should be
situated in districts where timber is cheap.
One manufacturer in Herkimer county, New
York, is said to have consumed within the
last eighteen years, 2,225.000 feet of lumber,
producing 6.500,000,000 matches. Probably
thelargesl manufacturer in the United States
is Mr. Charles Partridge, of New- York. His
works, for the sake of abundant supplies of
material, are in the wooded district of Lewis
county, N. Y., near the Black River canal.
Beside the wood employed fur the splints,
large quantities are also consumed for the
small cylindrical boxes in which the matches
are transported. Some of the splints are
exported to the 'West Indies and South Ame
rica, where the manufacture of matches has
been established within a few years past.—
The matches themselves are largely exported
to the East Indies, Australia, China, Mexico,
South America, the Pacific coast, etc. The
total amount manufactured in the United
States, is estimated at 7,000 gross of boxes
daily, containing 35,700,000 matches, and
worth $3,000.”
The Slave Trade.— lt is supposed that the
true cause of the secession movement in the
cotton States is, a desire, after they have broken
off from the Union, to open the slave trade. If
such be the fact, their revolutionary leaders must
be sballow-pated and short-sighted visionaries
not to see the impossibility of such a thing. The
sentiment of the entire civilized world is in op
position to the inhuman traffic. All the great Pow
ers are bound by treaty to discountenance and
break it up. Their vigilance would be doubly
exercised and their squadrons greatly increased,
when the fact had been ascertained that vessels
carried a charter from the new Confederacy to
legalise and justify what the other nations had
pronounced piracy, and punishable with death.
It is questionable whether their oppositioh would
stop here. So great is the repugnance of Great
Britain to the traffic, that if indulged in contrary
to the enlightened sentiment of the age* she
would seek to suppress it unaided, not only by
blowing the ships out of the seas which carried
slaves, but by carrying the war against those
who owned or licensed them. The cotton States
can never be successful in re-opening the slavfe
trade.
McCce’s Lixe. —The Transcript of Saturday
last contains the following;
J. S. McCue writes to inform us of the reasons
why his stage line to Marysville was discontin
ued. He says it was for the same reason that
influenced the wife to stop scolding. When she
began, her husband kept out of the way, and so
she “pegged out.” So it was with McCue. He
offered to let people ride for three dollars instead
of six, but the California Stage Company at once
put down their fare to one dollar, which won’t
pay tolls, and the people kept away from his
line, and he weakened. He says he was not
bought off, and would have kept on giving us all
a chance to ride for a fair price, if the people had
studied their own interests, and given him any
show. He offers lo make a new attempt in the
Spring, if the traveling public will give him a
show.
Nevada Postoffics.— Wo learn that Mf.
H. W. Knowltort is an applicant for the ap
pointment to the office of Postmaster for Neva
da, a petition for that purpose having been cir
culated in town and obtained numerous signa
i tures. Mr. Knowlton is eminently qualified
for the place, and his appointment would be
satisfactory to the citizens generally. —Demo-
crat.
If‘H. W.’ is Knowlton, the silversmith, he
is a clever fellow, and we hope, like Joe
Bowers, he may ‘win.’
A Flint with Fiue in it. —Wilson Flint
made a speech not long ago, at a Republican
legislative supper in Sacramento, and stated
that had Mr. Broderick lived, his contempt
for the democratic party had become so
great, on account of its slavery- proclivities,
that he intended to join Mr. Flint, and pass
over with him into the Republican ranks.
John Conness, who assumes to be the living
[ echo of the ‘dead Senator, assailed Mr. Flint
j for this saying,and denounced it as a slander.
; Mr. Flint writes a communication for the
I Union, ami comes back at the bell-wether of
j the Douglas party in this wise :
“Mr. Conness states that he has ‘pity and
: compassion’ for me. 1 trust that in his ex
uberance of good nature, as shown in all his
actions pending the contest for Speaker,
which resulted in his candidacy shattering
his party, we may still find him overflowing
with the milk of human kindness. Mr.
Conness further said; ‘Since Broderick’s
death, it had been the practice of little men
to parade before the public their identity
with him.’ I fully agree with him in this res
respect, and as he is generally admitted to
w-ear the mantle of Broderick(!), it remains
to be seen in what respect he possesses
qualifications titling him tobearhisimmense
burthen. We read in a book of fables of an
ass wearing a lion’s shin. Mr. Conness
wears the mantle of the dead Senator. In
this, to quote his own words, there is‘identify
with him.’ If Mr. Conness does not wear
Broderick’s mantle he walks by the side of
his cane. Cicero, whose son-in-law was a
very small man, on seeing him pass with an
immense sword at his side, said: ‘Bless me,
who has fastened my son-in-law lo that
sword !’ What should the people of Calfornia
say- in seeing the ‘little man from El Dorado’
attempt to stalk in the footsteps of David C.
Brbderick? I think I have shown their
‘identity’ of caliber. Let us look a moment
at their‘identity* of principle. Mr. Conness,
at the last session of the Legislature, voted
for a libel law, which would be regarded an
atrocity upon free principles in as mild a
despotism as that of Russia. All know that
Mr. Broderick’s inspirations of freedom
would make him abhor such an attempt to
strangle liberty. ‘ln pity and compassion,’
I avoid all allusion to Mr. Conness’ support
of a measure at the same session, in which
there were pecuniary considerations only
involved.”
Thtre’s fire in that Flint, certain.
Not Dead Yet —There is a gentleman
named Watson—a funny man, with mahog
any cheeks and an extremely red nose—in
tire Senate of this State, from Santa Cruz.
.He abandoned his scat last spring before the
close of the session, and went to Washoe.
While in that country, it was twice reported
he had been killed—once by a fall from
a hOrse, in a fu of intoxication ; and a sec
ond time by the hostile Indians. But like a
bad penny-, he turned up again. His wit is
costing the State a good deal of money.—
Pity he could'nt obtain employment in the
arena of one of onr traveling circhscs. His
talents are decidedly- of the harlequin order.
Ikisii Secession. — Ireland has caught the
secession fever. Her people are again agi
tating repeal. Mooney- is in ccstacics about
it, and keeps pouring hot shot into the ene
my- through the columns of his Express.—
Hope he may win; but the odds, as in the
case of South Carolina, are terribly against
him.
Death of a Savage Brute. —For more than
two years past, a Spanish steer had been running
wild in the canon of the Middle Yuba, between
Freeman’s Bridge and a point six or eight miles
abow. He had become a terror to pedestrians,
and a nuisance to all stock owners, among whose
cattle he introduced himself, breaking in upon
their quiet habits-, leading them off into unknown
haunts, and imparting to 'them a portion of his
own vagabond nature.
Last Friday some white men gave authority to
the Indians to kill this savage beast, promising
them that they might divide his flesh between
them for their labor. They undertook the dan
gerous job* and joined by one or two American
lads, hunted for the steer, and started him out
from one of his favorite hiding places. He ran
down the river road towards Freeman’s, and
turning an abrupt rocky point in his fight, came
near encountering an unsuspecting victim. A
miner who was on foot, going up the road, had
only time to throw his body into an inviting crev
ice, and thus escape the infuriated brute, as he
swept madly by. The steer discovered him as it
passed, and wheeling rapidly as its accelerated
motion would permit, returned, bellowing, to the
attack. The terrified miner caught hold of a
projecting rock overhead, and was enabled to
clamber to a place of security just in time to
save his bacon.
This delay- of the steer, brought the pursuers
close upon his haunches. He saw them coining,
and making across the river, took to the hills. — ;
His route was in accordance with their wishes
and plans. On the side of the hill he was inter- 1
ceptcd by several marksmen placed there for that
purpose* and shot down.
This event occasioned a great deal of thrilling
excitement in the orderly precincts of Freeman’s
Bridge, and will be long remembered —by the j
Indians, at least—for the sport and the cheap
meat which it afforded them;
A Treat ix Store.— lt is noised about the
streets, that some time next week, or the week
following, Messrs. Auguste Wettig and Sam.
Samelson, assisted by the best musical talent of
the mountains, will favor our citizens with an
instrumental and vocal concert. Mr. Wettig’s
proficiency as a pianist is well known; and we
venture to say, there are few violinists anywhere
who can draw a sweeter bow than Sam. Samcl
son. The selections, we are told, will be those of
the best composers, and embrace a number of
gems from the operas.
Dance House Row. —A difficulty occurred
in R dance house, at Chipps Flat, about ten
days ago, between a man named Tim Kennedy
and another called “Toddy ’’ The dfficiilty
originated about ft Spanish woman and
resulted in Kennedy drawing a pistol and
shooting the other—the ball taking effect
in his leg, above the knee, severing an
artery, from the effect of which be died in
about a week. The Spanish woman, about
whom the row originated, was also wounded
in the leg by the same ball, but not danger
ously.—Nevada Democrat.
