NORTH SAN JUAN, MARCH 23, 1801.
L. P. FISHER, No Washington street San
Francisco, is our only Autftnrlxcd Agent'for that
city.
RANDAL & CO., 61 IHtrStet are-nr.
tliomed to receive advertisement* and .«nbs< ri{>-
tions for the Press at place.
ROADS.
Our'different Road Overseers, under the
late appointments by the Board of Super
visors, are bestirring themselves in amend
ing and improving the public highways.
Judge Stidger, wc observe, has a gang of
men at work between this and Cherokee,
who are doing good service. Owing to his
long confinement on account of his severe
accident, several of the roads in bis district
•have fallen into an unusual state of dilapida
tion; but as he has heretofore enjoyed «n
enviable reputation for his zeal as an Over-'
Seer, there is little doubt but in a few weeks
be will entirely redeem all past neglect.
Mr. N. Cadwallader, the new Overseer in
the Sweelland district, has sotte understand
ing with that prince : road-builders, Mr.
TttJmas ! Frecman, l by which the former
makes the collections, and the latter super
intends the work. Both arc engaged in
active duty. Mr. Freeman has already con
structed a splendid piece of new road, about
the eighth of a mile in length, from the
Birchville ravine up the hill-side in the
direction of North San Juan, and done good
service, also, on the grade and top of the
ascent beyond, or in a southwest direction.
The work shows for itself, and is an honor
to that gentleman s pre-eminent talents in
'this Jroe of industry.
In the neighborhood ofFrench Corral, and
down the country from that point, another
most excellent road-builder has a ‘band of
men at work. We allude to Mr. N. W. Olark,
who is associated with Mr. David Woods in
Lis toll bridge and turnpike road enterprise.
W* had'occasion frequently to speak of his
energy and accomplishments in this respect
during the times of the Frazer River excite
ment. He was one of the principal men in
opening up the celebrated 1 Whatcom Trail.”
With four accomplished practical men like
these, who take a pride and a pleasure in
the pursuit, we may safely predict that the
close of itheir labors will 'find us possessed
of the very best public roads in the mount
ains. Nothing adds more to the substantial
prosperity of a country; besides, we hope to
succeed in convincing the Washoe mer
chants and miners that this is the route
which their trade should naturally seek, as
superior to the Placerville, or any other
road yet opened up as an avenue for trans
portation to and from that country.
Fuexvch Corral.' —This little mining town
exhibits encouraging signs of prosperity. There
are numerous flourishing gardens there, con
spicuous among which, are those of Messrs.
Pollard, Alger and Caswell, besides a large
amount of ground recently enclosed with sub
stantial fences, for the reception of young fruit
trees and seeds belonging to the diverse vegeta
ble kingdom. We notice two fine residences and
a capacious saloon also in process of construc
tion. The diggings in that neighborhood are
exceedingly productive.

JCT A merchant of education and experience,
who resides at Cherokee, with whom we con
versed a few days ago, and who is a strong Union
aaan, speaking of the effort on foot by the Cath
olic Church to secure a division of the school
fund, suggested that it would be proper to ex
clude the Bible entirely from our common
schools, and substitute, as a text-book, the Na
tional Constitution.
In these sentiments we heartily concur. Every
child should have some knowledge of the Gov
ernment under which he was born, and to which
his allegiance is due ; of the Constitution and
laws of his native country; of the obligations
resting upon him as a patriot; that he may, in
after life, assume all these obligations, with a
full determination to discharge them as becomes
a true man and freeman.
The assertion may seem strange, but we feel
convinced of its truth, that such a knowledge of
the Bible as is obtained during the hours and in
the manner of school instruction, is to destroy a
reverence for its sacred character, and reduce it
to the level of mere works of fiction.
The Ball at Cherokee. —The Ball given at
the Cherokee House, in Cherokee, by its pro
prietor, Mr. James Campbell, on Monday even
ing, was an agreeable episode in the history of that
pleasant little mining village. It was largely
attended, representatives of French Corral, Co
ihmbia Hill, San Juan, Shady Creek, Oak Tree
Grove, Nevada, and nearly all the neighboring
country being present. The Alleghanrtown
Brass Band having first visited San Juan, and
spent the day, proceeded to Cherokee in the
evening, and were soon after followed by the
San Juan Brass Band, as a token of respect and
courtesy. Their music was an enlivening fea
ture, not only as they performed on the road, but
at San Juan and Cherokee. At the latter place,
the Bands were greeted with frequent and hearty
cheers from the residents, who did every thing
to make their short sojourn agreeable. A splen
did supper, ample in its viands and courses, was
served at the Ball, which was also graced by no
less than three brides and their gooms. The
dancers found the occasion one of supreme en
joyment, .which was a high compliment to our
friend Campbell, and proved that he knows a
thing -or two belonging to a good host, if he is a
bachelor.
Vineyards; l — The vicinities of French Corral
sod Sweetkind are becoming somewhat noted
for the number of grape vines constantly being
planted.' More than twenty patches of arable
laad'may be observed along the roadsides, some
with the- vines already set out, others in course
of preparation • for the cuttings, and others still
which have attained a vigorous growth, and are
expected, in the proper season, to yield an
abundance of purple clusters. Mr. O. Evans
has a flourishing young vineyard, on Buckeye
Hill, and the French population about the Corral
are perhaps embarked in the next largest degree
j.n the grape culture.
PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S INAUG
URAL..
Most of our readers have by this time
perused President Lincoln’s Inaugural Ad
dress. -The Union, Appeal, Marysville Dem
ocrat) v and other dailies that have a wide
circulation in this ueighborhood, contained
it several days ago, which precludes the
necessity of our giving it a publication.
The document is differently construed by
different persons, as their sectional Ittartibgs
may happen to suggest—one portion of com •
raunity regarding it as a manifesto Of wrfr,
and the other declaring it'cßtnfUidtdVy and
decidedly for peace. We can see nothing in
it which bears the interpretation of a ihredt.
The style is a little crude, 'but (be 'matter
directly to the point. Every one with a
moderate degree of intelligence, may under
stand it. rights of slavery in the slave
States are Hot to be'interfered with, but the
'revenues must bt Collected and the public
property defended. Mr. Lincoln does not
even So far as to say that the laws of
dongVcss shall be strictly enforced in th c
seceding States, but on the contrary will not
attempt to make appointments to office
there against their expressed wishes—choos
ing rather that the public interest should in
some degree suffer than a conflict of arms
be precipitated.
This is what the President substantially '■
says, and what, if it had been said and acted
upon by Mr. Buchanan, would have crushed
the secession movement out before it gained
sufficient headway to be formidable. We
cannot imagine how a true man, feeling the
solemn responsibility of an official oath rest
ing upon him, and knowing the spirit in
which the people, the laws and the Constitu
tion require the functions of bis high office
to be executed, could say less. If he is sus
tained by Congress andahe people, we have
every confidence, from his declarations,that i
the power of the National 'Government, so
ignobly and basely used by his predecessor,
will be enforced to its fullest extent for the
restoration and maintenance of that dignity
which it has lost. Indeed, it can hardly be
said that we have had a Government for the
past three months. Every “puny whipster”
has placed its authority at defiance. Traitors
menaced the Chief Executive in thc White
House, and bullied him on the floors of Con
gress. The true American citizen felt a
blush mantle his cheek when he'Contem
plated such a state of affairs. We have been
the laughing stock to nations abroad, the
weakest and most contemptible of which,
have made us the subject of their ribaldry
and jests. It is high time these things were
at an end. President Lincoln intimates the
same thing. He promises to be a deter
mined Chief Executive officer, and so long
as he is so—politics entirely aside—he de
serves to be encouraged and sustained by
all parties. For one, we shall only demand
that he is right, and then that he shall “ go
ahead,” let who will be the sufferers in the
conflict that ensues, if conflict it is to be.
A Large Swarm. —Soon after President
Lincoln’s inauguration, it is reported one
hundred and forty-four Californians paid
him their respects. It is fair to presume
that nine-tenths of them were office-seekers.
How is That?— Thc late Pony news states
Mr. Douglas joined Mr. Crittenden in tele
graphing to the Virginia Convention, urging
that State not to secede, inasmuch as the
President’s Inaugural was peaceful. The
former expressed a determination to ‘-sustain
it, although he would not support the Ad
ministration.”
We can’C exactly understand that differ
ence. It seems to be “without a distinction.”
If the President is right at the outstart, the
presumption is that he wishes to continue
so; and if Mr. Douglas can approve the sen
timents of his Inaugural Message, he ought
to wait till there is some departure from its
spirit before declaring his determination to
act against the ensuing administration of
affairs.
Mr. T. McGuire’s Card. —On the outside of
to-day’s paper we publish the report of the Grand
Jury, and on the inside a card over the signature
of Mr. T. McGuire, a citizen of this place, relat
ing to Hospital affairs. We understand it was
notorious last week in Nevada that a personal
insult was offered Mr. McGuire by the physi
cian of the Hospital, for no other reason than
that he dared discharge his sworn duty as a grand
juror, and yet, although they have a daily and a
tri-weekly paper at that place, both of which
have since been issued several times, we see in
neither of them any allusion to the affair. The
Jury, in its official character, publishes specific
charges against the physician of the Hospital,
and thc papers alluded to are also silent on this
point.
Now, we know nothing about the indignity
offered to Mr. McGuire by the physician, further
than is set forth in Ms card—which, knowing the
author as we do to be a gentleman of veracity, is
with us good authority—nor about the abuses
practised in the Hospital, if there be any abuses .
but whether there are or not, we think it was the
plain duty of the papers alluded to, either to
corroborate and substantiate the statement of the
Grand Jury, or vindicate the physician from the
charges preferred against him.
This is a public matter, which interests every
tax-payer of the county, and the people should
be informed of all the facts in the premises. If
grand jurors are to be overawed and intimidated,
we will hereafter be compelled to rely on bullies
and fighting men to discharge the duties of that
thankless and expensive vocation.
ICFWith the exception of two or three slight
showers, the weather for three weeks past has
been marked by almost a midsummer warmth
and splendor. Thursday, and yesterday morning
were slightly raw, but the sun has again assum
ed supremacy, -and gives promise of bolding un
interrupted dominion for some time to come.
Skies Brightening. —lt was anticipated
by many, that the vigorous tone of President
Lincoln’s inaugural message would excite
the South to some hasty act of imprudence
or violence, which would lead to bloodshed
and civil war; but such has not bdfen the
case. "On the contrary, the latest Atlantic
intelligence informs us that ‘‘things are quiet,
und all parties seem disposed to await the
action df (life Government.”
indicates, in a certain Quarter, a
glearti 'of returning 'ftasdn. the seceding
"Stales, thus far, have had not one act of op
pression to complain of. They had nothing
even to apprehend in the future. The Pres
ident, it was well known, if he had been so
disposed, could have done them no injury
without the aid of Congress, and that body
was politically opposed to him. They were
alarmed at less than a shadow, and withdrew
from the Union for fear something might
happen. This is the principle on which Mrs.
Toodles made her auction purchases. The
door-plate bearing the name of Thompson,
was n case in point. Old foodies protested
against the expenditure of money in that
way as “a piece of d—d folly.” Mrs. T., in
reply argued, that “some day they might
have a daughter. That daughter might
grow iTp to womanhood and marry' a man
named Thompson ; and if she did, it would
be so convenient to have ft in the house !”
The cotton States have affected to believe
Mr. Lincoln a very monster of tyranny —a diar
bolical Nero, who would lire their plantations
and fiddle amid the conflagration ; a sangui
nary Caligula, who would draw all their
heads together and sever them from their
bodies at a single blow ! Thus, by taking
unnecessary alarm, prompted by a desire to
appear courageous—a quality which no one
ever doubted them to possess—they simply
made themselves ridiculous, and are every
day becoming more and more convinced of
that fact.
A Senator ’Elected ! —The telegraph in
forms us that Gen. James McDougall was elect
ed to the United States Senate by the Legislature
on the 20th inst., at 9 o’clock, P. M. The Doug,
las men were joined by the Republicans, every
one of whom voted for McDuugall excepting
Crocker, of Sacramento.
This is gratifying intelligence. Gen. McDou
gall is a Union man, and a Californian by choice,
interest and affection. We have little doubt but
Ire will represent the State in a zealous, dignified
proper manner, which has not always been the
case with those who have assumed to speak for
California in the Senate Chamber.
The Last Ballot. — The following is the
classification of the vote tor United States
Senator which elected Gen. McDougall, in
Joint Convention, on the 20th inst.:

Lincoln's Cabinet. —The Pony news of
March 20th announces President Lincoln’s
Cabinet officers as follows: Secretary of
State, Win. H. Seward, of New York; Sec
retary of the Treasury, Salmon P. Chase, of
Ohio ; Secretary of War. Simou Cameron, of
Pennsylvania ; Secretary of the Navy, Gideon
Wells, of Connecticut; Postmaster General,
Montgomery Blair, of Maryland; Secretary
of the Interior, Caleb B. Smith, of Indiana ;
Attorney General, Edward Bates, of Mo.
It is said that a few Senators voted against
Blair and Bates because they were from the
South.
Cherokee Correspondence.
March 17th, 1861.
Mr. Editor : —Notwithstanding the agitated
political condition of the country, last week Mr.
Schwartz, an enterprising merchant of this place,
erected in front of his store a splendid flag-staff
eighty feet high, at the top of which proudly
floats the stars and stripes—“doing honor to his
heart and head. The achievement, in its Union
aspects, purely reflects the sentiments of the
good people of Cherokee.
Mining operations open out this spring with
fair prospects. “Last Hope” shaft is steadily
progressing. The company arc now down some
forty feet. The work is much retarded in con
sequence of the great volume of water encoun
tered, but the enterprise bids fair to be succesful,
and if so, will open up a vast amount of ground
on a lead which is reported to be very rich.
Mr. Smith, of “Smith’s Exchange,” has dis
covered a quartz lead that is thought also to be
rich.
The “Cherokee Rancho” looks green and
flourishing with the coming crop. Mr. David
Ackley has set out this spring some three thous
and well-assorted fruit trees and quite a number
of grape-vines, besides strawberry plants without
number. May success attend him.

Coincidence.— lt is a singular historical
coincidence that the grandfather of Major
Robt. Anderson of the U. S. Army, now
commanding in Charleston, was an officer in
the American lines at the seige of Charleston,
in 1780, when it was captured by Cornwallis,
their commander. Eighty-one years have
passed awuy,and the tdwn which the grand
father fought to save is now in armsjigainst
the grandson.
CARD TO THE PUBLIC.
Mr. Editor As any member of our com
munity may be called upon at almost any time,
to the neglect of his business, to go to Nevada at
an expense of from twenty to fifty dollars, as
grand juror for the county, I wish to warn them
how a faithful performance of fhat duty may
subject them to the grossest insults, and even to
the imminent peril of their lives. I also wish to
show them how a citizen in the discharge of a
sworn duty—which every good citizen ought,
when called upon, to discharge—may bring upon
himself the contumely and menace of those who
may happen to be named as remiss under the
laws, by him who seeks honestly to perform that
duty. I wish to narrate briefly what occurred to
me in Nevada during the last sitting of the Grand
Jury, of which body I was a humble member.
The Jury convened on Monday, the llthof
March, when the oath was administered to them
by the County Judge, requirrhg them to disclose
anything they might know to have occurred in
the county against the peace and dignity of the
people of the State, and to investigate and report
if the officers of the county were faithfully dis
charging their respective duties. On the 13th,
while perambulating the city in company with a
fellow-grand juror from North San Juan, and
being near the Hospital, I proposed to him that
we should enter and see how its affairs were con
ducted. We found every part of the house, with
one honorable exception—the kitchen—in a
wretchedly filthy condition. The bedding was
filthy, and in many casts'unprovided with sheets.
In conversation with the patients, we elicited
from one poor fellow, that his bed-clothes had
not been changed for the last four weeks, and
that when the clothing is changecl* at all, it is
when Visitors are expected ; also, that wearing
apparel remains unwashed unless the patients
are able to do it themselves. Another said be
had been in the Hospital nearly three weeks,
unable to get out of his bed, the clothes of which
had not been changed ; and that, during a portion
of the time he-.lay on a straw mattrass, with
out sheets; and that he had been neglected
by the physician. Another remarked that he
dared not tell the truths about his condition, as
he was at the mercy of the attending physician,
and might have to remain in the Hospital for
some t>ime yet.
It is, Mr. Editor, out of sympathy for the af
flicted and'the reasons of forbearance which they
assign that I refrain from giving their names.
The Grand Jury was sworn in on the 11th, and
our unexpected visit was made on the 13th. On
the loth a committee was regularly appointed to
visit and report as to the sanitary condition of the
Hospital, which duty they performed. They re
ported that they found it in a reasonably good
condition, and the patients apparently well cared
for. In making out our final report it was pro
posed that that portion relating to the County
Hospital should read as follows : “They find the
County Hospital in a reasonably good condition.,
and the patients apparently well cared for, but
would state, that two members of the Jury visited
the Hospital oTi Tuesday Tnorfang and found it
in a very different condition. On that occasion
the building was filthy, the floor uncleanly, the
beds in many instances unprovided with sheets,
and the patients manifestly neglected. "Whether
the change was owing to an anticipated visit of
the Grand Jury, or was prompted by a regard for
the sanitary condition of the institution, they
are unable to determine.”
It was for wishing this temperate reproof in
corporated in the report of the Grand Jury, that
I was grossly insulted and menaced by the per
son in charge of the Hospital, while conversing
with a gentleman in the hall of the National
Hotel. I was unarmed and totally unprepared
for an attack of this kind, and therefore did not
resent it at the time. It was perhaps well enough
for me that I did not, as I was well assured by
responsible parties that it was usual for him to
go armed.
I think, Mr. Editor, affairs have reached theif
climax in our county if grand jurors must cither
go armed to the teeth or suffer contumely and
reproach if they dare perform a solemn duty.

[pJ’WEhave received another lengthy com
munication from “E Plvribus Unum,” but at
so late an hour as to prevent its appearance in
print this week. We shall publish it next.
Honorable Proceeding.— Senator Yance,
a Breckinridge man, voted in Joint Conven
tion for Gen. McDougall. The Union says,
relating to the fact :
“We understand that after the regular
Breckinridge candidate was withdrawn, and
Nugent taken up, he (Mr. Yance) withdrew
from the caucus, announcing at the time
that he should not consider himself bound
by its action. Yesterday, when it appeared
that his vote would elect McDougall, he
voted for him, to close the matter and place
the Legislature in a position to transact the
business of the State.”
Game Law.— The Legislature of the State
passed May ISth, 1854, An Act for the pro
tection of Game, the first section of
which reads:
“It shall not be lawful for any person or
persons hereafter, to take, kill or destroy
any of the following game within the time
hereinafter specified, viz; Quails or Par
tridges, Mallard Dock, and the Wood or
Summer Duck, shall not be taken, killed or
destroyed between tbe first day of March,
and the fifteenth day of September, in each
year.”
Sportsmen will take notice that tbe fine
for this offence is 525. Those who buy or
sell are subject to the same fine.
Fatal Accident.— We are called upon to
record the death of another victim of hy
draulic mining : Mr. William Quirk, an es
teemed citizen of Red Dog, was killed by the
caving, of a bank in bis claim, at Sardine
Flat, near Red Dog. The accident occurred
on Tuesday, but was not discovered till yes
terday (Wednesday.) The body, when
found, was horribly crushed, and not far from
the spot where Mr. Essex was killed a few
days ago.
Mr. Quirk was a member of I. 0. 0. F., by
which orber he will be buried to-day at Red
Dog. He was from Michigan.
