Her remoteness from the scene of action deprives her the opportuni ty of sending troops to the war; but she can contribute money. It should be made a point with both the Union parties, to impress upon thc*roinds of their candidates for the Legislature, the propriety and duty of pass ing an act submitting to a vote of the people at the earliest possible day, a proposition to give or loan to the General Government a million of dollars. The people will ratify it and the Government receive the money with a double pleasure, as conveying not only material aid, but an assurance of the inflex ible fidelity of her grateful children resident on the Pacific coast. There is one ‘big’ al ternative for those who wouldn’t like to pay the extra tax. It is suggested in the lines of the Confederacy national song. The loyal will not grumble ; and those who arc disloyal ought to be made pay their proportion, any how. The Sunday Act.— The following is the Sunday law passed by the last Legislature : Section 1. Any person who shall hereafter keep open on the first day of the week, com monly called Sunday, any store, workshop, bar, saloon, hanking house, or other place of business, for the purpose of transacting business therein, except as hereinafter especially provided, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not less than five nor more than fifty dollars. Sec. 2. The provisions of this Act shall not apply to the keeping open of hotels, boarding houses, restaurants, taverns, livery stables, retail drug stores (fur the legitimate business of each.) or such manufacturing establish ments as are necessarily kept in continual operation to accomplish the busincss'tbereof; nor to the sale of milk, fresh meats, fresh fish, and vegetables. Sec. 3. Prosecutions for violations of this Act may be either by complaint to a Magistrate, or by indictment by a Grand Jury, and all fines and collections upon convictions under this Act shall be paid into the common school fund of the county. See. 4. This Act shall be in force from and after the first day of August. 1861. Our Senators.—So far as we can hear our noble Senators, Messrs. Latham and McDougall, are properly representing their constituents. Both sustain the war; both are working for the Pacific Rail Road, and both will meet with that just reward-hereafter to which honest industry in a glorious cause is entitled. What an incomparable blessing it is— sparklingall over with beatific splendor—that Gwin, of Mississppi, or some other of the seceding States, no longer misrepresents California on the floor of the United Slates Senate I ■ Independent Papers.—We have seen an item classifying the Union papers of this State which have a leaning, and those that are entirely independent of party trammel. The Hydraulic Press is not mentioned. We should like to know where a paper is to be found more fearlessly independent in the expression of its opinions And ns to our ; Union sentiments —they have cost us the ‘secession’ of about a hundred anti-coercion subscribers. But we still float; and even it came to a sink, the two extended fingers would Still be up, to denote “scissors!" __ • ..... . . Ben. hear of this man again, and this time his name ’ Q connected with a noble act, which is explained by following item ; Ben. McCulloch was in the engagement at Carthage with Sigel, as before reported. They took a guard of 100 Federal®, left at Neosho, prisoners. The Missouri troops wished to hang them. Ben. McCulloch refused to do so, and released them on taking oath nottobeararmsagainst the confederates, and sent them towards Springfield, with an escort of Aakansians, for protection against the infuriated Missourians.” Two Sides to the Case.—ln his speech be fore the Secession State Convention, Judge Shat tuck said: “It has not been known before, in any coun try supposed to be free, that in a city where the laws had not been suspend- d, where the Courts of the United States were clothed with full power, where the Marshal of the United States, with his baton, stood ready to do his office, that a man should be taken, not by a warrant, but by mili tary despotism, from his private family and shut up in a prison without bail.” Nor was it ever before known in any country “supposed to-be free,” that while the laws of that country were in peaceful and impartial op eration —its Courts prepared to do equal and ex act justice between all classes of citizens—that treason has attempted unblushingly to overthrow both. The text which the gentleman uses is the best commentary upon his own language. It was just because this country was so free; its laws in such admirable force; and its Courts prepared to execute their full duty, that treason is left without an excuse,, and traitors without justification. What Matter ?—Several papers are anx iously making the inquiry, “where did Senator Thornton go ?” Who the d—l cares, so he never returns to this State?, to preach treason against the Govern meat 7 “CONSCIENCE MAKES COWARDS OF US ALL.” The South has always boasted much of its chivalry—a species of vainglory, which, although neither modest nor courteous, was acquiesced in, because it was regarded to some extent as true. The recognition did not carry with it, however, an acknowledgment of superior bravery. Gen erosity, hospitality and gallantry were the fea tures admitted, and nothing more. Since the commencement of the unnatural and unneces sary war into which their Confederacy has forced the Government, their boast has not by any means been redeemed by their acts. Their armies have been forced to evacuate fortified po sitions without a defensive blow being struck. Their squadrons have been routed by largely in ferior numbers; and their regiments vanquished on almost every field where they attempted to make a stand. This was not because the Southern soldier lacked courage. Fighting under the flag of his country, against foreign invaders, he would march into the jaws of death as boldly and fear lessly as he did on the ensanguined fields of Cerro Cordo or Buena Vista. It is his con science which makes him a coward. The majesty of an outraged law stares him in the face, and the phantom of a gallows stalks behind him! .If he ventures beyond the camp, he is startled by every bush that is suddenly shaken. When he goes to battle, it is with a conviction that he is fighting in an unholy cause. The martial strains of loyal music pierce to his guilty soul. The serried columns of the patriot army have a terror in their advance movement, which cows him. His arm becomes weak, his voice husky, his aim uncertain. He feels self-condemned, and dare not fight the struggle to its mortal issue. There is a voiceless dignity in the right which treason cannot withstand ; a moral power in the law, before which rebellion falters; a heavenly radiance encircling the brow of Liberty, which the averted eye of conspiracy dare not encounter. Conscience is at work ; courage stands abashed; and guilt causes flight when no man pursueth. God has ordained the certainty of chastisement; and the belief of its visitation is, to the political and civil offender, a weight too ponderous and overpowering to be borne. This consciousness of wrong not only makes a brave man a coward, but it also mak s him a vil lain. He stands condemned in his own estima tion, and feels that he is so in the estimation of others. Having no longer a self-respect, he be comes reckless of the good opinion of those around him. In such a state of mind, he is pre pared to embark in any desperate enterprise, without a scruple as to the means by which it is to be accomplished. The reign of terror in the South, has its origin in just such a condition of things as we have been describing. The Southern people do not act in accordance with any of the well established rules of philosophy, propriety or morality. A species of frenzy prevails. Even the municipal law is set at defiance. Anarchy prevails through out all departments and conditions of society. Criminals are released from the prisons. Mur der, rapine, violence in every form, not only goes unpunished, but meets with the approbation of the rulers. Statutes arc passed legalizing fraud and encouraging dishonesty. Society is either entirely broken up or terrorized. There is no longer safety for life, limb or property. And can a cause which demoralizes in this manner, pros per ? Can it hope to meet with the aid or sym pathy of right-thinking people ? Never! Remorse is doing its own work, with a gnaw ing, relentless tooth, which strikes deep into the vitals. If the Government had no armies in the field, it could not fail, in the end, to achieve a conquest. Treason, traitors, conspiracy and con spirators are self-destroying; and, sooner or later, must meet with an inevitable doom. The Sunday Law,— To-morrow this law’, passed by the late Legislature, goes into effect for the first time. Will it be obeyed ? is a ques tion frequently asked, and which we have heard answered both negatively and affirmatively. There is a large class of leading merchants and business men, who are anxious the law should be rigidly enforced. They maintain, that aside from any religious observance of the Sabbath, it is necessary to secure them that rest from the harrowing cares and toils of secular labor, so necessary to the health of both body and mind. The dry gc ods merchant, the banker, the clothier, for instance, each wishes to avail himself of its immunities; but if some one or more persons in the same line of business, refuse to comply with the terms of the act, these are, in self-defence, compelled to place themselves in the position of violators of the law, by keeping open their stores, to secure that portion of trade which would other wise be lost to them. Such men call for the en forcement of the law. There are others, such as butchers, provision "dealers and saloon pro prietors, who may not be willing to abide its en forceinfQ t. The officers of the law must settle the question as between them. It must be apparent to every one, that the provisions of such an aci meet with greater resistance in mining towns than else'.' here. In large cities it is no inconvenience for all classed and conditions of people to lay in their supplies on Saturday nights. The laboring man and me chanic receive their week’s wages at that time, and have the markets at hand to furnish every article demanded by their wants. Among the miners it is different. Even in those cases where the money is abundant, time is a matter of great importance. The miner is employed in his claims to a late hour on Saturday evening— later, perhaps, than on any other evening—and is often as far removed as two, three and four miles from the place whence his supplies are de rived. Sunday is his day of leisure, and it is then that he makes his purchases for the week that is to ensue. His compliance with the act, therefore, will be of compulsion, and compulsion only. The law, we think, will be found almost inop erative in mining regions. If the class of busi ness men of whom we have first spoken, wish to see it enforced for their own special protection, they will be compelled to go into the Courts to contest the matter; which may bring them the required relief. A Fire-Eater. —A secession county conven tion was recently held at Sacramento. John'Q. Brown was nominated for State Senator—the man who came within three votes of beating Tom Findley for State Treasurer. Major Gillis said he (Brown) was absent at Washoe; but ‘‘he would swallow a hot stove if required by that party to do so,” We think John could do it. The throat that could swallow the secession pill, ought to feel agreeably titillated at taking down a hot stove— with the negro cook thrown in ! Randolph in favor of Assassination.— Edmund Randolph has heretofore been a favored man in California. All parties were solicitous to claim him, and the people, without respect to party, would at any time have showed acqui escence in doing him honor, He was considered to occupy ah eminently conservative position. But one doubt rested against him. He was too silent amid the clashing of opinion as to his opin ions. An honorable man never permits himself to be doubted, when the opportunities are at band for prompt and immediate explanation. Mr. Randolph was claimed even by the Re publicans. He was proposed by many as a suit able person to return to the United States Sen ate. The enthusiasm attaching to his name was repressed in the Republican ranks only because he was also asserted to belong to the Douglas Democracy. During all these discussions, Mr. Randolph said nothing. But he has at last spoken ; and his voice, like the foul air of a vault that has long been closed on putrid matter, es capes but to sicken, and disgust, and horrify! He proves himself the boldest and the vilest of the whole batch of California traitors. He goes even so far as to favor and hope for the assassin ation of the President of the United States! Was ever so brutal a sentiment before uttered in a free State, among a loyal people, and the au thor permitted to go unpunished ? Oh, the times arc sadly out of joint! They must be mended. Henceforth let this man stand accused before the people whose moral sense he has so audaciously outraged. The Meagre Losses. —lt is matter of great surprise, on reading the details of battles be tween the Government and rebel forces, that greater numbers of men are not killed on both sides. The correspondents tell us, in some in stances, of the conflict lasting half an hour, an hour, or two hours, with several regiments of t oops engaged, and yet, with the loss of but five or six men. A fight took place near Harrison ville, Mo., between 170 Federals and 500 rebels on the 20th of July, which was stubbornly con tested and lasted four hours. The rebels lost 14 men, and the Federals but one. Either the vol unteers are not very good marksmen, or their weapons are in some manner at fault. The War News. —Gen. Scott’s anaconda is tightening its folds. At last accounts the grand army had advanced upon the foe in three formidable divisions. Davis and Beau regard are in for it. They will be compelled either to fight, surrender or retreat. Doubt less a bold stand will be made, and a decisive battle fouglit, The action at Bull's Run in dicates that the rebels are determined to measure their strength agdinst the Govern ment troops. Should they decline the en counter, the moral effect upon the Southern people will be as disheartening as though they had suffered actual defeat. To this complexion thoir desperate fortunes will come at last; and whether they succeed in maintaining their ground at Manassas Junc tion, or Richmond, or any judiciously select ed point, it will be but a temporary triumph. The determined squadrons of the Govern ment are encircling them, and escape from their crushing power is utterly impossible. (HTThe secessionists love the States of their nativity so much, that they would rather see the Union overthrown than consent to a relinquish ment of any of the (ridiculous) rights which they claim under and by virtue of the assumed sov ereignty of those States; and yet, they applauded Judge Shattuck, a Yankee, when he abused and villified New England ! Afterwards, they re warded him by a prominent nomination on their ticket! Why Don’t They Go ?—The Southern Se cessionist says he “goes with the State of his nativity ?” Why don’t he go ? 0* The secessionists are for “peaceand well they may be, after reading the news brought by each successive pony. They didn’t think of “peace,” however, at the time Fort Sumter was attacked, nor until two hundred thousand sol diers were in the field to avenge that outrage. _ (HPMr. Kittrell, of Sonoma, in seconding the nomination of Judge Shattuck, before the Seces sion State Convention, said: “More than that, he [Shattuck] was a New England man by birth and education, embody ing all that sterling honesty and integrity which characterized the sturdy sons of Miles—what was his name ?—Standish and the others that came over in the old Mayflower.” The rebels down South have a different man ner of speaking of New England men, styling them —what do you call it?—“blue bellies,” “mackerel-catchers,” etc. We believe the Con vention, after all, admitted there was such a quality among the Yankees as “ that sterling honesty and integrity,” by indorsing Judge Shat tuck as its candidate. Convict Labor.— The San Francisco Jour nal complains, that Thomas Ogg Shaw, the great manufacturer of agricultural imple ments, is employingcon vict labor, to the detri ment of honest mechanics. This labor is pro cured at about 50 ceuts per day. The Jour nal says: “We do not propose interference with their private enterprises ; but it is our intention to combat and endeavor to destroy a system of under working which menaces the inter ests of a large number of industrious citi zens. The coopers allege that before transferring the work to the State Prison, Dow k Co. allowed them #1 25 for each whisky barrel manufactured ; then the price was reduced to one dollar, afterwards to 80 cents. At that rate a good workman, working ten hours a dav, could, earn about S 2 40. “It seems like a miserable policy for the State to permit the employment of convicts in the trades by which a large and important body of citizens obtain a livelihood, and when every prisoner drives a mechanic from the workshops, and cots down bis wages to starvation rates.” O’John R. McConnell is represented as hav ing said, two or three months ago— “I stand just that way. Igo with my State. As goes Kentuckv, so will I go. And as sure as we stand here, Kentucky will be out of the Union in two weeks.” This man aspires to be Governor of California* If he holds these sentiments now, would he dare, if elected, to take the required oath of office ? Eloqfent.—J. H. Warwick, the well known actor, has been nominated by the Republicans of Sacramento county for the Assembly. At a ratification meeting held a few nights ago, he delivered a speech, of which the following was the eloquent peroration: “If God in his wisdom has doomed this nation to destruction—*-if her mission is fulfilled, and her glory Is to pass away—let the groans of her dissolution resemble the agony of her birth ; and as she was horn, so let her expire, amid the shock of contending armies, the roar of the battle, the thunder of cannon, and the shrieks of the dying. Let her live no longer, a cheat and a He, to de ceive mankind with false beacons of freedom.— Let her punishment be an example so terrible, that posterity, for a thousand years to come, shall tremble at the story of her destruction, and till man shall appreciate the blessings of freedom and learn the secret of governing himself. Let her name be blotted out from among the nations of the earth, and the smoke of her expiring fires darken the broad heavens like the robe of a fu neral pall,” Promotion's.— Napoleon was popular with the armv, because the humblest soldier in the ranks, if he displayed unusual talents or bravery, was certain of promotion. We are glad to ob serve that this worthy example is being imitated by our Government. Col. Sigel has been ad vanced to the rank of a Brigadier General. Other worthy instances have occurred, not now remembered, reflecting credit upon the system. Soldiers will risk more, and be actuated by mo tives of a higher ambition, who feel that honors are In store for those who exhibit heroism. • ♦ • The Sacramento Union. —There was a time when the political parties with whom this paper refused to affiliate, accused it of having no opin ions of its own. The same denunciation has been hurled against other papers of a purely in dependent character, which refused to harness themselves in the traces of political Juggernaut. If the accusation ever had force, as regarded the Union, that time has gone by. This noble paper, as its name imports, is truly Union, of the Union and for the Union —with all of the fine ability and immense resources which it can command. Its circulation, at this time immense, ought to be quadrupled. The loyal sentiments which it utters and disseminates among thousands of readers, meet with a cordial response in every patriotic bosom. Mild, but firm ; dignified, but bold; argumentative and impartial, its articles must command vast influence in strengthening the Union cause. Recently it has added George Wilkes to the number of its war correspondents. This is a splendid acquisition; and complete as its summaries of Atlantic news l ave heretofore been, the glowing pen of this gifted writer will spice them with an intellectual savor which will give them new interest to Pacific readers. ♦ * Self-Condemning.— Portions of the speech of Tod Robinson, at the reassembling of the State Secession Convention, are a terrible de nunciation against the leaders of the Southern rebellion, although intended to have quite a dif ferent signification. Hear him; “More striking still —a free, a constitutional, a Republican Government, has been subverted. The principles of the Declaration of Indepen dence have been disowned. That instrument declares that Government is instituted for the purposes of protecting us—protecting life, liber ty, and the pursuit of happiness.” And the Government had never failed to pro tect us in the enjoyment of all these blessings, when a band of conspirators and traitors raised their impious hands to strike it down. • - Temporary deafness, arising from cold, sitting in a draught, and other causes, may be relieved and cured by letting fall into the ear ten drops of a mixture of sweet oil and one of glycerine every night, until the duct which leads from the ear to the nose is cleared ; this will be known by the sensation of the fluid passing at once from the ear into the nostril.
