ISRAEL COMSTOCK, Chairman, ffxo. C. Birch, Secretary. Trinity River Corrcspumlonre. liiu li.u:, Trinity River, Feb. 13, 1830. Editor Journal.— I would not intrude upon the ground of your regular correspon dents, but should like to inform the public of what a little enterprise will do in the dark mountains and solitary places of the earth, by way of remembrance, and to stir up good works elsewhere. The recent change in business, hopes, and prospects hereabouts is remarkable. A while ago, at the close of mining in the river bed—the successful hav ing left with their “piles”-—no means for bar or bank diggings even to work a solitary sluice—no sale for merchandise—no money for a set-to at swapping cents —no fast nags for the races-—no circulating library—noth ing visible to encourage a hope of better times or to procure means to “travel”—des pair seemed depicted in each countenance — the visage of all was drawn down to such an enormous length that they represented a walking comic almanac. Thus it was when in October last a company of three, having “faith equal to a grain of mustard seed,’’ which you know will remove mountains, commenced rebuilding a flume over Triuity river to run water to J>ig Flat. Thereupon water and ditch interests clashed — appeals to the law followed—all work suspended enterprise crushed and buried under injunc tions, attachments, and documents of law Pyramid high— parties stubborn and unyield' ing, retaining everybody as witnesses and laying out a winter’s business in the courts, However, the conciliating interposed to pre vent farther waste and provide extended | means for mining—brought the belligerents into council—settled all differences amicably ! -—parted in friendship to meet again with j united energies to extend mining facilities to ! the utmost bounds. Dixon, Louis A Co. 1 purchased all the conflicting interests to the ; waters of the creek, and by their efforts an abundant supply is being carried to Dig Flat, bar and the "point.” Last week they com pleted a flume over a mile in length taking the water out below the saw mill, and run ning 18 to 20 sluice streams on to Big Flat. The heaviest and most difficult part of the work was to carry the flume over Trinity river at a elevation of 45 feet above its bed, and cost about $10,000. These works, to gether with J. T. Weaver A Co.'s enormous wheel at the upper end of the Flat, and the water courses opened to this place and the point opposite, has put new life nnd energy into every one. The elongated faces have been screwed up to smiling countenances— new claims being opened—old ones worked more thoroughly—thrift and plenty appear ing so manifest we judge all have adopted poor Richard’s method of making mouey plcnly in every man’s pocket. Great advancement has been made the past year in building houses more durable, neat and comfortable. Formerly, a miner was content to set posts in the] ground covered with a few shakes without floor or window. Xow, health and comfort are consulted. A year ago Mr. Warrencr was looked upon as a wild calculator and ought to be put into a straight jacket for thinking lie «'ould sell lumber enough to warrant the building of a saw mill. They said two men and a boy could whip-saw all the lumber required lor vears. He built his mill however, and for ingenious fixings fur despatch and labor sav ing excels anything ever seen in Yankee land. Last summer he sold over 100,000 feet for river lluming. That was taken out in the fall and put in market at half [price, and I am informed that he has in the last three months sawed 50,000 feet more, all of which has found a market. He is now building a substantial bridge over 1 rinity river opposite to this place, sufficient lor all loaded teams. His object is not pay, but for a great public convenience. It will be completed iu a month and will be an impor tant link in the chain of events now in pro gress to bind Weaverville to Humboldt Hay by a good wagon road. This is the first bridge attempted to be built below Canon Creek. Had we a few more men ol such enterprise business would advance and flom jsh throughout the county. This Division of the Sons of Lenipcraucc |» ju a flourishing condition. They are about getting a good library, and have connected therewith a Lyceum. At the last meeting they discussed the question, “Ought Tarkcr H. French to be received at Washington as minister from Nicaragua.” The discussion was conducted with spirit on both sides, showing great research for material, and elicited many facts worth remembering.— Decision was a “French leave.” Fox. Not Giii.tv —A Nkw Method of Arriv ing at a Verdict.— The Stale Journal says that the jury in the case of Philip Smith, charged with the murder of Abiel Richard son, have returned a verdict of “not guilty,” and relates the following mode by which they arrived at it: —At 4 o’clock yesterday morning the jury came into court and asked for instructions on certain legal points.— There were nine different questions asked, and by almost as many jurors, showing that they were divided. They went into the room again in charge of the officers, and af ter discussing the whys and wherefores for some time, compromised the matter, as we have been informed on pretty good authori ty, by putting into a hat 24 tickets, on 12 of which was written “guilty,” and on the other 12 “not guilty,” the verdict to be as a majority of cards thus drawn should deter mine. The cards said “not guilty,” and so it was. We rather like the plan, as it set tles the matter at once; but would suggest that the drawing had better take place here after before the trial, and thus save the money of the county, Ike lungs of lawyers, and the patience of J udges. flSfWe copy the following incident from the San Francisco Ilernltl: ‘An hour before the sailing of (he Golden Age on Tuesday an unsophisticated appearing youth was ob served hastening through the cabin and sa loon of die steamer, peering anxiously through the door-room of every open state-room, and ucrvously demanding admittance where he found the doors fastened. The shocking con duct of the young man created an immense sensation among the ladies, and aroused the ire of the chambermaid, who questioned the propriety of such extraordinary investiga tion, and made known her sentiments in un mistakable terms of displeasure. This lead to an explanation, and ultimately to the ex pose of a remarkably clever trick attempted to be played upon an innocent young man by a smart young lady. It appeared that the agitated young gentleman was in search of his lady-love, of whom he had positive in formation that she had purchased a passage ticket with the view of visiting her friends in the Fast. The pleasantest part of the joke is, that the ticket was purchased with a por tion of the same funds furnished to the lady by her lover to be employed in the purchase of bridal robes, etc. The precious pair were to have been married during the ensuing week. With the assistance of the chamber maid, the fair fugitive was found snugly be stowed in one of the upper saloon state rooms; but it was only by stratagem that the young lady could be induced to unbarri cade the door. The false one stood upon her dignity and refused to relent, but con sented to return the balance on hand of the cash appropriated for the purchase of the wedding equippage. The duped lover quiet ly pocketed this sum, amounting to some thing over two hundred dollars, and swab lowing his chagrin, betook himself ashore, followed by the sympathetic glances of the ladies and the universal merriment of the men who had been the amused auditors of the scene.’ No Accountin'!; for Tastes. —On the oc casion of two opposition boats starting from Pittsburg, one employed a German band to attract passengers; the other being minus the music, and not desiring to be outdone, started her steam-whistle, which completely drowned the music of the band. The May or being called upon, declined to interfere, saying that ‘one was a specimen of German music, and the other the genuine Ameri can.’ -S*v fray'dudge Wilkins, of 1 tetroit, upon hear ing that the ‘Young Men’s llall’ of that city had been offered for the use of the Abolition ist Phillips, subsequently insisted that the lease by which it is rented to the United States for the service of the District Court should contain a clause giving the l r . S. Marshal the entire control of it. Judge Wilkins could not consent to administer jus tice in the morning where treason had been preached in the evening. fr-i?" President Divas, the head of the new Government of Nicaragua, is, according to information which has been obtained by the W ashington Star, a mere prisoner in the hands of \\ alker, who signs his name to documents only at Walker’s order, the pen alty of denth at all times hanging over him for refusing to obey the commands of those who hold him in custody.

Pennsylvania orje-teuth Ax Affecting Incident. —Among the passengers on the ill-fated steamer Anthony Wayne, was a Mr. Walters, who was on his way from Chicago, 111., to Philadelphia, Pa., with the remains of his wife. When the explosion took place Mr. Walters was thrown to a considerable height, and fell in the water almost lifeless. Struggling to keep afloat he accidentally struck against a box, by means of which he supported him self through that dark, dreary night. When daylight appeared lie found that the box which had saved his life contained the corpse of his wife! —«- a> • «— CkS"T!ic original Declaration of Indepen dence has been stolen from the Patent Of fice at Washington. ——-m ♦-» ♦ m ■ Sixgci.ah.— It seems to be the general impres sion throughout the community that the China man.

Seri"' Prentice, of the Louisville Journal, has received from his friends a new overcoat, lie is as enthusiastic about it as a boy in his lirst boots, and says; ‘It Fits us as well as if we had been melted and poured into it.’ Conscience.— The State Treasurer of Vermont lately received the following note: “ Put the enclosed fifty dollars into the Treasury of Vermont. It is due from Conscience.’’ If “Conscience” would only operate in a similar manner in California, our State Treas ury would soon become plethoric. — A/t i.
