The New York llerahl publishes
Isome extracts from a new work eutitled % Jackson and New Orleans, by Alexander ■Walker. We give below an extract in re gard to the defences of the American forces at the battle of New Orleans, from which it would appear that the cotton bales instead of being used as a means of defence were an injury to the army. We think, however, it will be a hard matter at this late day to convince the American people that cotton bales were not the principal means of defence upon that occasion. Mr. Walker says: On the other side the Americans were equally unsuccessful in attempting to employ one of the great staples of the country for warlike purposes. A flatboat, which lay near the American camp, had in it some fif ty bales of cotton, tlie property of that since famous cotton speculator, Vincente Xolto, who had purchased them from Muj. Plnuehe, Commandant of the Orleans battalion. In the hurried construction of the embankment these bales had been rolled out and thrown into the pile of earth to increase its bulk.— On this day the enemy’s balls striking one of these bales knocked it out of the mound, set lire to the cotton, and sent it (lying about to the great danger of the ammunition.— The bales were consequently removed, and some of them falling on the outside of the breastwork into the ditch there issued from them a heavy smoke, which blinded the ar tillerists and seriously obstructek their oper ations. Some of the men of I’lauehe’s bat talion volunteered to extinguish the burn ing cotton, and slipping over the breastwork succeeded in doing so, not, however, without injury, one of the parties being seriously wounded. After this no cotton bales were ever used in the breastwork. Yet a vulgar error has long prevailed that Jackson’s de fences were composed chiefly of this great staple, which, though modern science has dis covered to possess certain inflammable qual ities suited for some of the operations of war, is, perhaps, one of the most insecure and dangerous materials out of which a breast work to resist cannon balls, shells and rock ets could be constructed. The imaginations of the British, excited by avarice by the prospect of sharing the immense quantity of this valuable product reported to be accumu lated in the city of New Orleans, might be excused for seeing such a vast heap of it ly ing, like the apple of Tantalus, within their grasp and alluring them to death and dis grace. Hut American writers are scarcely pardonable for a repetition of this absurdity, that Jackson’s lines were composed, in whole or in part, of cotton bales. The experience of this campaign demonstrated that sugar and cotton were intended tor peaceful uses, for the nurture, conservation and protection of humanity, and not as aids and appliances in promoting man’s destruction and encour aging his passions. It demonstrated this other valuable truth, that the soil of Louis ianna is the best material out id' which to construct its own defence. It was the sole material of Jackson’s slight breastwork.— The British balls were imbedded in the soft clastic earth, where they remained without shaking or weakening the embankment. In deed, they contributed to render it more solid. The only inlets through which they had access into the lines were through the embrasures for the cannon, and nearly all these were penetrated several times. Hut the British were notable to pursue these ad vantages. Their works were rapidly melt ing before the lire of the Americans. !Soon their redoubt was completely silenced and thq parapets levelled with the plain. Then the Americans raised the most stentorian huzzas as LliS British artillerists w ere seen stealing out oi their demolish?!.! works and running as fast as they could for the nearest ditch. The American batteries waxed w armer and cont inued their fire at the other redoubts, until they, too, were soon in a con dition similar to that which had been the first object of their fury. Startling Statistics. — In u temperance speech, delivered some time ago, at Granite, and which was published in the State Jour nal(ion. A. M. Winn presented some sta tistics which must startle the sober people of .Sacramento: llo says that there are in this city, 170 licensed grog shops—these pay a license per annum amounting to $13,000 —it is esti- j mated that each of these houses must average receipts amounting to $30 per day—this would give $5,100 per day; one hundred and liity-three thousand per mouth; and one million, eight hundred and thirty-six thousand dollars per annum. Then extend the calculation to the population of our State, which, say, is three hundred thousand; as suming the population of (Sacramento to be twelve thousand inhabitants. If all the bal ance of the State were to pay in the same proportion for whisky, then the enormous amount expended, would be twenty-three millions of doUuTs per annum. Now let us see what effect this whisky stream has upon the body politic of our county alone. In the last twelve months there have been over fourteen hundred imprisonments in the Sac ramento prison alone—Buying nothing of the county imprisonments—nearly all these have been sent there through the influence of whisky. The amount spent in Sacramento for whisky, shows that it is about one hundred and fifty dollars to each man, woman and child, living within its limits, and that, too, without counting the amount donated in pri vate houses, stores, Ac. There are, say, six thousand tax payers in tlm city; then to each tax payer it is equal to $3,000. And yet, when it is proposed to levy a tax of one dollar on the thousand dollars worth of property, for the education of the childrenol our county, men raise their hands with hor ror at such un enormous tax. Large Egg. —Mr. D. S. Feruold, living at the North Iteuch, has laid on our table a mammoth hen’s egg, one of nine, the pro duction of a young pullet raised by him.— The egg now before us measures lengthwise seven and a half inches in circumference by six and a quarter round, and weighs three and a half ounces. The other eight eggs are of about the same size and weight.— This beats anything in the egg line we have yet heard of. The fowl is a small sized com mon black hen.- Bulletin. COMM UN IC A T TC T'). Kor the Journal. The State Prison Bill. It will be seen by reference to the Legis , lative proceedings that a bill has passed that body authorizing the keeping of the State prisoners by contract at a cost not to exceed fifteen thousand dollars per month (i. c. $15,- 000 a month) to the State. Is this right? This question may be more readily answered by reference to the action of the Legislature : of 1855. That body passed a law creating a Board of Inspectors and defining their powers and duties, which gave them lull con trol of the prisoners aud the providing for . their support. The first Board was appointed i by the Governor according to the provisions | of the law, and the second elected by the people at the last general election, and en tered upon their duties ou the first day of January, 1850. Are the three Directors i elected by the people not competent to dis j charge the duties of their office, thereby call ing for the action of the Legislature to lease : out the prisoners at the nice little sum of $180,000 a year, and the labor of the pris oners thrown in to the lessee to bind the bar gain. There is something about this mat ter that is hard to understand. The present Directors will have the management of the matter; that is, they are Directors and will : draw their salaries the same as though the ; above bill had not been passed. Another 1 strange feature in the action of the Senate is, that an effort was made to let the con. tract by r receiving proposals after public no tice for the same had been given, and let the contract to the lowest responsible bidder.— This amendment was voted down by the same majority that the bill was passed with. Can any person in his right mind believe that any man will take the contract of taking charge of the State prisoners without a handsome profit out of it? Indeed, he would not be a sane man that would take charge of a set of the greatest desperadoes in the country unless he was to be remunerated for his risk and trouble. The people elected three men for this very purpose with full powers to carry the whole matter into effect, and if a profit is to be made, or rather some thing saved, why in the name of Heaven is the State of California not to receive the benefit of it? She has elected her officers and provided a salary for them that they were willing to serve her in that capacity for, and a salary that w ill have to be paid. The Governor had not signed the bill at last accounts, but he will ayproce it, and thus another Water Lot scheme fastened upon the people. X. Canon City, March 10th, 1850. EniToit Joi ns u.:— On Saturday evening, as usual, I went to Jackass to get letters and papers. Judge of my astonishment on arriving to find the Misses Polity and Cleve land, with Mr. Blackburn, of Sau Francisco and Weaverville theatrical notoriety. 1 could hardly believe until my senses realized our secluded, isolated, mountain-bound, gold producing valley resounding with such deaf ening, hearty, side-widening roars of applause fiS if by magic or enchantment those bright stars of tho theatrical circles of’Frisco drew from the lungs of t he Pikes, Suckers, and Sons of Erin. The entertainment was of the choicest selection of songs, duetts, &e. Had we ever heard Jenny Lind or Kate Hayes, we might institute a comparison; but in the humble opinion of your correspon dent it was beyond the reach of the pen of the critic. On Sunday evening business of all kinds was suspended. As tho hour drew near a general enquiry could be heard in the crowded street in front of the Sebastopol Theater, “have you got your ticket?” The hour came; the door was opened; a simul taneous charge was made, and amid tho deafening tread of heavy boots Sebastopol was takeu. Assisted in the singing by Mr. Miller, of our place, Messrs. Jones and Doug lass playing an accompaniment on the violin, tho Misses l’elby and Cleveland were hear ; tily encored, and if possible as highly appre dated us on the evening previous. They left this morning for WeuverAille, not with out promising to return. W e encore them ' again, and assure them their appearance i would be most sat-is-fac-to-ry. PlKE. Canon City, March 17th, 1856. Messrs?. Editors.— Having contemplated for some time furnishing your columns with a brief history of the Carton Creek Water Company from its first organization, with the eireumstane.es which have attended it to its now almost completion, stating nothing but facts immediately connected with the Company, which, whether prejudicial to the 'uterest of others or not, 1 deem it my duty as truth cannot prejudice lawful right and justice, besides probably furnishing some items that might lie of interest to others en gaging in a similar enterprise. On the sixth day of May, 1853, the first step was taken towards diverting the water of Carton Creek from its natural bed by means of a dam and thence a Hume or ditch along the high bars and tints, to supply the miners. The Company commenced opera tions on the eighth day of July following, by entering into a contract with Mr E. 0. Lord to build a dam sufficiently high and substantial to elevate the water ami take it to a certain point on Fake’s Bar by means of a flume six hundred feet in length. Air. Lord worked on the dam until the 15th of December, 1853. lie (Lord) then went to Weaverville and entered suit against the Company in the District Court, aud attached the dam aud other property belonging to them. No sooner was this done than the Company gave the bonds required by law, took possession of the dam, and proceeded towards its completion. They worked but a short time when they became aw are of the fact that the base of the darn was too small to admit of the water being raised to the point specified in the contract with Mr. E. (i. Lord; however, they proceeded to raise the dam as high as the base would admit of, not, however, without great difficulty and expense in repairing as many us three large breaks that occurred between the 9th of February, '54, and the 8th of March follow ing. On the 1th of March the water run through the flume for the first time; on the 29th of April the dam gave way the fourth time, after the water hail run over the top of the dam and through the flume for two days and a half. Between the first and lust break of the big dam, or Carton Creek Wa ter Company’s dam, two other companies commenced operations of a similar nature. The 8t. Louis Water Company, the first, about one mile and a half below the big dam; and the Carton City Water Company about one mile and three quarters or two miles below the big dam, which commenced operations some live or six weeks after the St Louis Company. The Carton City Wa ter Company after working some two or three months, on some pretended grounds set up a claim to the waters of Carton Creek in preference to the St. Louis Company.- The latter, however, always exercised the rights and privileges of preferment to the former, being second in right to the waters of Carton Creek. We mention this in con nection with our subject to show where the first innovation on the rights of others be gun. It now became apparent to the members of the Cuftn Creek Water Company that all attempts to make their dam stand would be futile. The dam was a total loss of twenty two thousand dollars. Undismayed in their first attempt and after sustaining such a heavy loss, the Canon Creek Co. moved up above the old dam about six hundred yards and on the 3d of May, ’54, commenced get ting out timbejs for a new dam, whereby the water could be easily raised by means of a small dam sufficiently high to be conducted to the point first attemptid, on Fake's Bar. In this they succeeded alter an outlay ot five thousand dollars; and furthermore, have succeeded in putting up four miles and a quarter of flume six feet w ide and three feet high, substantially built- —the sleepers, bed pieces, uprights and plank all being sawed at a cost of $7,500 per mile besides a ditch over one mile and a half in length that will carry 20 sluice-heads of w ater. Were it not for this enterprise Canon Creek w ould be w orthless. Many claims that arc now suc cessfully w orked would remain forever undis turbed. The Canon City Company have brought suit against the Canon Creek Company. They have also purchased a part of the St. Louis Company’s works and combined them in their complaint against the Canon Creek Company. The whole matter will be set tled by law, and whatever the decision may be, it will interest water companies. Yours, Oi.u Residenteb. Two I’kiisoxs Kvtkn I'r Auvk iiv Woi.vks.— Owing to the extreme cold weather for some time past, the wolves in Pottawattamie County have become dangerous neighbor.' Poultry yards and sheep folds have been robbed to a great extent, and in several Instances the hungry beasts have not been ini lined to spare the human species. About three weeks ago a man was returning from a prayer meeting accompanied by bis two daughters, one sixteen ami tin; other twenty-three years of age. They were all on the sumo horse, when suddenly a puck of timber wolves assailed them and being tillable to o.-eapu by flight they at tempted to defend themselves. Itiil the ferocious brute-attacked the horse, ren derings him unwtuingeuble. The oldest daughter was partly thrown and partly dragged to the ground, and instantly devoured. This enabled the father and other daughter to escape. Several neighbors were soon mustered, but upon repair ing to the spot nothing was found but one shoe, and a very few remnants of the unfortunate gill’s clothing. A boy of thirteen years old left his father’s house to get water at a spring, which wus about halfa mile distant, since which time nothing has been seen of hin. The pail was found near the sqring, also some marks of blood, and u lock or two of hair. Several persons have been chased by these savage monsters. — hruhuk 1'ost. At Cleveland, 0., on the 9th alt., it was so cold that the cows had to be driven into tbe house to thaw their bags before milking. What is Law. haw is like lire; and those who meddle with it may chance to "burn their lin gers.” Law is like an cel trap, very easy to get in, but difficult to get out of. Law is like a lancet, dangerous in the hands of the ignorant ; doubtful even in the hands ol an adept, Law is like a sieve, you only see through it, but you will he constantly reduced before you can get through it. A Marvellous Mirror. —Among the ca riosities which were exhibited in the Paris Exposition, was a huge concave mirror, the instrument of a startling species of optical magic. On standing close to it, it presents nothing but a magnificent monstrous dissec tion of your physiognomy. On retiring a couple of feet, it gives your own face and figure in true proportion, but reversed, the head downwards. But retire still further, standing at the distance of five or six feet from the mirror, and behold! you see your self not a reflection—it does not strike you as a reflection —but your veritable self, stan ding in the middle part, bet treat you a nd the minor! The effect is almost appalling, from the idea it suggests of something supernatu ral; so startling, in fact, that men of the strongest nerves will shrink involuntarily at the first view. If you raise your cane to thrust at your other self, you will see it pass clean through the body and appear on the other side, the figure thrusting at you at the same instant The artist who first succeeded in fashioning a mirror of this description, brought it to one of the French kings—if ve recollect aright, it was Louis AY — placed his majesty on the right spot, and bade him draw his sword, and thrust at the figure lie saw. The king did so; but, seeing the point of a sword directed to his own breast, threw down his weapon and ran away. The practical joke cost the inventor the king's patronage and favor; his majesty being afterwards so ashamed of his cowar dice, that he would never again look at the mirror or its owner. Jurymen’s Diet. — The livening .Yen'ssays that llaley A Thompson, of the Railroad House, have commenced suit against the county ofSan Francisco for the board, lodgings, wine and provisions furnished the (’ora jury by order of the Sheriff. The claim was presented to the Board of Super visors, who, however, refused to allow more than $«00. Canine Sagacity.— The lives of several persons were saved recently, in Sparta, Sus sex county* N. J., by a very sagacious dog. The premises where they lived took lire du ring the night, und the dog, when the flames burst forth, rushed to the door, and tried to force it open. Failing in this, und failing also in awakening the inmates, he finally dashed through a window, and by the crush of the glass and his vigorous barking, aroused the sleepers, who escaped from the building, having barely time to snatch up in their hasty retreat the necessary garments to protect them from the cold, -luxekange. jP®“There is iro'.i enough in the bluoUof 411 men In make fifty horse-shoes, eaeh weighing hull' a pound. 70t**In water, sound passes at the rate of 8.508 feet per second, luair, 1.1 12 feet per second. ~-iV( 1 old may he beaten into leave so thin that 380,000 would tie onh an inch thick.
