The occurrence took place near the house of H.C .WHEELER, on Major’s ranch, some eight or ten miles up the coast from Santa Cruz. The deceased was in the company of four or five others when the blow was given, which was witnessed by one more of them. The club weighed six or eight pounds.

Treasure for China - Incorporations - The Late Defalcation - Judgement - Arrival from the North - Mail and Treasure by the Golden Age - Sudden Death

SAN FRANCISCO, March 1st

Steamer Robert Low, for China, yesterday carried $501, 220.60 and cargo valued at $31,000.

The following companies were incorporated yesterday: Best Chance Gold and Silver for Echo District, Nevada Territory - capital, $90,000; Pauline, for Esmeralda - capital, $300,000; Noble Copper Company, Calaveras county - capital, $1,000,000.

MARCHUTZ, late Public Administrator, speculated in greenbacks and mining stock, which was the cause of his defalcation. It is shown that he was attempting to leave the State when arrested at Placerville.  John AGNEW obtained judgement last night for $2,295, value of the stallion Commodore, and 880, value of his services. The animal was killed by explosion of the steamer Contra Costa in 1859.

Steamer Sierra Nevada, from Victoria and Oregon, arrived this morning; she brings $49,996 in treasure, and 58 passengers.

The steamer Golden Age, which arrived last evening brought 12 packages of mail matter, and five boxes of treasure from the Golden Gate wreck.  The body of a man came ashore near the Ocean House to-day.

A Frenchman named GUED dropped dead on the Mission road.

The weather is very warm.

The statement that G.W. POOLE was expelled from his company for larceny is a mistake. He was arrested under a misapprehension, and is fully exonerated.

Late from the North.

YREKA, March 1st.

We have Portland dates to February 23d.

On the evening of the 22d a little daughter of MAXWELL, of Lynn county, fell into a tub of boiling water, and was scalded to death.  Letters from the Boise mines say that gulches seven feet deep will average 25 cents to the pan from the top down.

The Lewiston Age says the reported capture and subsequent hanging of MAYFIELD and PLUMMER is untrue and without the slightest foundation.  Parties claiming to know what they say assert that the reported late attempt to fit out a rebel privateer at Victoria was true, and that the project fell through from want of harmony among those connected with the enterprise.

Nehemiah NORTHRUP, an old printer, died in Portland February 18th. He was one of the original proprietors of the San Francisco Journal.  The Indians on the Snake and Boise rivers are becoming very troublesome, they steal whenever opportunity offers. [An Indian generally does. - Ed.  Union.]

One  J.W. SMYTHE of Portland has been missing since the 29th of January.  William REILEY, tried for the murder of A.C. HUMPHREYS in Jackson county, has been convicted of murder in the second degree.  Captain John F. NOBLE has opened a recruiting office in Salem.

LETTER FROM HUMBOLDT

[Correspondence of the Union.]

HUMBOLDT CITY, February 18, 1863 Our Town and its Facilities.

Our Winter is pleasantly passing away, and but little of interest has transpired here since my last, save that we have a tri-weekly United States mail established, which gives us less cause of complaint about letters. One COWLES has taken the contract, and is now carrying the mail matter horseback, with the intention of running passenger wagons next Spring.  Not long ago a considerable excitement was raised here by the reported discovery of a rich gold lead in the first range east of this. Men rushed madly thither, some on horseback, with pack animals, mules and jacks; others on foot, packing their provisions, blankets and prospecting tools. The mania continued to rage for days, but, as is common, the disappointed gold seekers soon began to return, cursing the cause that led them away. And what is strange, men rush to these excitements who have the best claims in these mountains, and more feet than they can take care of.

Insanity - Arson Case - Incorporations - The Interpolation Case – Cargo Damaged

SAN FRANCISCO, March 5th

James MOUNTAIN, who shot and killed Edward MURPHY on Market street last August was tried for insanity to-day before a full jury, in the Twelfth District Court. The verdict is that MOUNTAIN is insane at this date. The question, was he insane at the time of the killing, was not tried; but that would be the ground of defense in the event of the restoration of his reason. He seems to be insane on religious subjects.  James SMITH, the young man who set fire to BRIGGS’ warehouse to conceal his robberies, committed to obtain money to pay gambling debts, pleaded guilty to arson in the second degree to-day.

The following mining companies incorporated: San Francisco Copper Mining Company, for Campo Seco District, Calaveras county capital stock $540,000;

Buenaventura Gold and Silver Mining Company, for Aurora, Mono county, capital stock $140,000; East Antelope, for Esmeralda, capital stock $300,000.

J.R. CORVELL, charged with interpolating the engrossed Swamp and Tide Land Bill, was dismissed in the Police Court to-day, on the ground that it was not a public document.

Another body, supposed to be of the Beeswing crew, has come ashore in San Mateo county.

About one-third of the cargo of the British ship Sardinian, from Hongkong, is damaged by sea-water.

A CALIFORNIA ABROAD - Mrs. E.N. LEEDERNIER, who resided some time in California has been giving some successful readings in Rome during the past Winter.

Incorporation - Insolvency - Tax Title Sustained - Donnery Acquitted - Rates

of Passage - California Traitors for Texas - Arrival

SAN FRANCISCO, March 9th

The following mining companies incorporated to-day: Summit Pass Gold and

Silver, for Columbia, Tuolumne county - capital, $315,000; Creosus Gold and Silver, Washoe valley, Nevada Territory - capital, $200,000; California Copper Smelting Works, Contra Costa county - capital, $1,000,000.  Robert J. ORDWAY filed a petition in insolvency - debts, $1,100; no assets.

In the case of D.S. ROBERTS against the proprietors of the Asylum on Pine street, the Fourth District Court gives a verdict for plaintiff, sustaining a tax title.

F. ACKER, the engineer who was hurt on board the steamer Yosemite, has died of his injuries.

The examination of Edward DONNERY, charged with setting fire to a house occupied by Mrs. Catharine GUNTER, involving the loss of herself, resulted in the acquittal of the accused to-day.

Rates of passage by steamer Moses TAYLOR are, first cabin $125, second cabin $100.

A letter from Los Angeles gives bad accounts of the State Range mines - that they are merely outcroppings, and soon exhausted.

The Mazatlan paper of February 26th says: “Last Friday a party of eight

persons, consisting of Judge D.S. TERRY, T.T. BOULDING, Duncan BEAUMONT,

Isaac HEITT, W.T.ROBINSON, Jonathan LOVELESS, Tod ROBINSON, Jr., and Ed.GRAYSON of this city, took their departure for Texas. The party were well mounted and armed, and had an excellent outfit in every respect.” Ship Osborne Howes, from Manilla November 7th, brings 2,100 bags coffee, 41,568 bags sugar, 800 bales hemp and 137 bales jeans, to Coleman.

FOR STOCKTON - The insane Italian who has been confined at the station house three or four days, and whose condition was such on Friday night that his recovery was deemed doubtful, has greatly improved as to health, and will be sent to Stockton to-day. It is ascertained that his name is Agostino GUIRELO; that he has been subject to spells of insanity for several years, resulting from having been badly burned on the back by some accident in the mountains. He stated to a friend yesterday that a relative in San Francisco had defrauded him out of his property.

POLICE COURT - There was but little business done in the Police Court on Saturday. In the case of Mrs. SMITH, charged with selling liquor without a license, the charge was dismissed on payment of costs and agreement on the part of defendant to procure license. In the case of M.T. CROWELL, charged with assault and battery, committed some ten days ago, on P.B. BURBANK, the defendant withdrew the former plea of not guilty and entered a plea of guilty. Sentence deferred until to-day.

WAS NOT GOING - We understand that J.H. GASS informs his friends that he had no intention of leaving the State on board the Shawmut, but that he and his sister merely went on board the vessel to see F. FRANKS and his wife off, and designed to return to San Francisco in the pilot boat. The circumstances of the Shawmut striking Mile Rock did not, it appears from this statement, interfere in the least with his plans and designs.

J. H. GASS - Since Friday evening, J.H. GASS, in default of bail, has occupied an apartment in the county jail. It is supposed that an effort will be made to obtain a reduction in bail, and that he will thereupon be released. The report gains credence that others are implicated in some of his illegal transactions, and that a strong effort will therefore be made to secure his ultimate discharge.

ARRESTS - A man named Thomas MINNICH was arrested on Saturday by officer CHILDS, on a charge of being drunk and sleeping on the sidewalk. A Mexican named Intarach was arrested by officer CHAMBERLAIN on a charge of vagrancy.  Intarach had camped for some time in a hollow tree near Ninth and C streets, and was suspected of earning his living by stealing.

SUPREME COURT - In the Supreme Court on Saturday, in the case of the Trustees of Columbia College vs. Ish, on motion of appellant and stipulation filed, leave was given to withdraw transcript. VERZAN vs. McGREGOR - On motion of BEATTY of counsel, and stipulation, leave given to withdraw transcript.

COURT IN YOLO - Judge McKUNE, of the Sixth Judicial District, will, according to law, open Court this morning at Woodland, Yolo county. A week’s time will probably finish up the business of the term.

ADMITTED TO PRACTICE - J.B. BARKER was on Saturday, on motion of H.O.  BEATTY, and filing affidavit of admission to the Supreme Court of the State of Illinois, admitted to practice in the Supreme Court.

FOR TRIAL TO DAY - Richard DELANY and Peter DOWNS will be tried in the Court of Sessions to day on a charge of grand larceny, in robbing a miner at the saloon of NEARY & BREEN.

INSANE - Lieutenant CHAMBERLAIN arrested an unknown man last evening on suspicion of insanity.

DEATHS - Five deaths occurred in the city during the past week, as appears from the mortality report.

SHOOTING - Two men named RAMSEY have been bound over in Solano county for shooting one John GOAKLEY in Green Valley, in a dispute about land. The wound is not serious.

SAD ACCIDENT - At Yreka lately, a little daughter of one SCHEID, while playing in a swing, broke one of her legs.

WARNING TO DESERTERS - The Grand Jury of New York dismissed the complaint against Michael BRADY, who, while acting as a member of the Provost Marshal’s guard, shot a deserter who was escaping from him.

GOOD CLAIM - One-eighth interest in the SPANGLER claim on the lower end of Humbug, in Siskiyou county, was bought lately by one Alexander MOORE for $2,500.

FURTHER ACCOUNT OF THE STEAM TUG MERRIMAC DISASTER - The Body of Captain

J.S. GARWOOD was found on Saturday late on the beach one mile north of Eel river, and thirteen miles south of Humboldt bar. He was drowned when the steam tug Merrimac was recently lost on the Humboldt bar. His body was brought down to this city by the steamer Panama. We are informed that the bodies of two or three drowned persons have been found who were on the Merrimac. The Humboldt Times of March 7th says, however, that none had ben found previous to the 6th instant. - Bulletin, Mar. 14th.

INDIANS KILLED - The Oroville Union of March 14th says:

We learn from a gentleman who came down from Chico on Thursday that a party of whites, a few days ago, residing some seven or eight miles above that place, killed three Indians who were employed on a ranch in the vicinity, on suspicion that they were in league with the mountain Indians who committed the late outrages.

SUICIDE BY HANGING - A Frenchman named Peter COOK committed suicide by hanging himself in his cabin at Empire Flat, not far from French Corral, Nevada county, on Wednesday, March 11th. Drink is assigned as the cause.

ACCIDENT - A man named Benjamin T. CONGER, while returning from French Corral to San Juan lately, was run away with by his horse, leaped from his buggy and had his leg broken.

KILLING INDIANS - The Humboldt Times of March 7th has the following:

We learn from K.N. GEAR, who passed Fort Seward last week, that the “mocassin men” at that place killed twenty-three Indians a few days ago. One of the men had gone out hunting and camped for the night, when the Indians commenced coming into his camp, a few at a time, till seventeen had intruded their presence upon him. He was satisfied they intended to murder him, and accordingly set his wits to work to save his bacon. He proposed to stop there with them and they would hunt and kill game together. This the Indians agreed to, and the bucks started out for a hunt. Going near Fort Seward, where the balance of the whites were stopping, the three Indians forgot to come back to camp in the evening, but in their stead about fifteen white men came. They found twenty Indians in camp and left them where they were found - but they will tell no tales.

SINGULAR CONDUCT - The Mountain Democrat of March 14th relates the following:

A fine looking, well-dressed young man named George P. CHAPMAN, formerly from Salina, New York, but of late a resident of San Francisco, was seen on Thursday, near Smith’s Flat, stabbing himself with a pocket knife in the left breast. When arrested eight severe but not dangerous cuts were discovered over his heart. He had in his possession a small amount of gold coin and a $500 United States sever per cent bond, payable to his own order, which he offered to a gentleman who arrested him for a revolver with which to shoot himself. He was laboring under a temporary fit of derangement. He was brought to town and placed under the charge of Sheriff HUNTER, who has his money, etc.

OF COURSE - To ensure the departure of the rebel Terry for Texas, the Dutch Flat Enquirer (Secession) says:

As a brother of Judge TERRY died recently, it is probable that he will visit Texas and look after the estate before it is confiscated by the Confederates.

MIKE BRANNIGAN DISCHARGED - In the Court of Sessions yesterday morning J.W. COFFROTH, one of the counsel for the State in the case of The People vs.  BRANNIGAN, stated that the principal witness in the case, Edith MITCHELL, was at Victoria, and would not return to California to testify on the trial of the cause. He was therefore willing, with the consent of the District Attorney, that a nolle prosequi should be entered and the defendant discharged. There being no objection to the proposition, the order was entered, and Mike was released form the annoyance and perplexity of a second trial.

THE WRONG CAN - A few days ago, at one of our city hotels, the cook was somewhat surprised, on resorting to the milk can just left by the milkman, to find that it contained nothing but pure water. On demanding an explanation of the milkman, on his next return, he frankly acknowledged that, instead of bringing in a can of milk properly diluted with water, he had by mistake left that which contained the diluting substance itself. He had designed, as was his custom, to distribute the water pro rata among his customers. The unreasonable landlord gave full credence to the explanation, but at once changed milkmen.

INSANE - A man named Michael CODY was yesterday arrested by officer CHILDS and taken to the station house on suspicion of insanity. He was removed during the afternoon to the County Hospital. Bertha ALVERDE, who was on Monday taken to the station house on account of insanity and released was again taken in charge by officer CHILDS. She was subsequently visited by the Examining Committee, and pronounced insane. She will probably be taken to Stockton to-day.

THE CHAIN GANG - The chain gang, under the supervision of Overseers DREMAN and LONG, was engaged yesterday in repairing the J street bridge and in reconstructing the road formerly built across the slough, a short distance below the bridge.

The United States Steamer Saginaw - Marriage Suit - Insurance Company

Organized - Incorporations - Suicide

SAN FRANCISCO, March 27

The United States steamer Saginaw is to sail immediately for a cruise down the Mexican coast. The object of the cruise in only conjectured, but it is rumored that the steamer has been placed by Government temporarily at the disposal of Collector RANKIN, who will send her on an expedition to certain ports down the coast to arrest certain parties concerned in the CHAPMAN privateer enterprise, on information disclosed by the investigation now being held in Fort Alcatraz. This is all rumor - no facts obtainable.  In the case of Lucy EAGER against Almarin GROW, the Fourth District Court to-day decided that the marriage contract was null, for the reason that defendant has another wife living.

Sergeant LAWLER was to-day fined $50 for assault upon Captain RYAN.  Manuel GERKEN has been discharged from custody by orders from the State Prison Directors.

The Gould & Curry declares a dividend of $100 per foot.

The Pacific Mutual Insurance Company was fully organized this afternoon.  There are 100 shares at $5,000 per share. Seventy-five shares are already taken, the balance reserved for future distribution.

The Buena Vista Vinicultural Association incorporated to-day. The company will purchase land in Sonoma and Napa counties, and cultivate all descriptions of fruits, grains and plants. Some of the principal vine growers, including Colonel HARASZTHY, are engaged in the enterprise.  Experiments will be made with foreign fruits and cereals. The capital stock is $600,000, in 100 shares.

The following mining companies were incorporated to-day: Comstock Gold and Silver, Sugar Pine district, Tuolumne county; capital $200,000. Queen Bee Gold and Silver, Bodie district, Mono county; capital stock $220,000. Santa Cruz Silver, Lower California; capital stock $120,000. Empire Gold Silver, Coso district, Tulare county; capital stock $120,000. Rhodes’  Northeast Extension Gold, Sacramento; capital stock $300,000. Insurance Gold and Silver, Virginia district, N.T.; capital stock $500,00. La Plata, Gold Hill, Story county, N.T.; capital stock $900,000; Golden Ear Tunnel, Esmeralda; capital stock $100,000.

Schooner Guilhlis, from Punta Arenas, brings 90,000 pounds of coffee, to Larco.

Mrs. LEVY, who lived with her husband, corner of Dupont street and Sullivan’s alley, where they kept a dry goods store, committed suicide to-night by cutting her throat from ear to ear. No cause assigned.

ATTEMPT AT ROBBERY AND MURDER - The Grass Valley National of March 26th related the following case of a most daring outrage:

Tuesday evening at about half-past nine o’clock a most daring attempt at robbery was made at the residence of E. COLEMAN, of the North Star Quartz Mining Company, French Lead. COLEMAN had been to town and returned at the hour above mentioned, and while sitting in his room reading the paper some person knocked at the door, on opening which he found a pistol presented at his dead by a man in disguise.  His only show was then to step behind the door, and as the robber forced his way in, COLEMAN seized him, and a scuffle ensued, during which both fell to the floor. The noise made by him attracted the attention of a companion of the robber, who, it seems, was stationed outside, and who thereupon rushed in, struck COLEMAN with a knife, and being a powerful man, dragged him off his companion, and hurling him against the wall, succeeded in stunning him for a moment, during which time they both escaped from the house. COLEMAN as soon as he recovered pursued the robbers and succeeded in overtaking them, upon which they turned upon him and threatened to shoot him if he made any attempt at molesting them, and being without a weapon of any kind he was thus compelled to let the robbers escape. Both of the men had their faces blackened, and no doubt had followed COLEMAN from town. Their object evidently was to intimidate him, and then force him to open the Company’ s safe. This attempt is the more daring from the fact that all the neighboring houses had lights burning, the inmates not having retired to rest. We are happy to learn that the wound received by COLEMAN is but a slight one, the robber evidently having missed his aim. COLEMAN displayed great bravery and coolness in the affair, and with anything like an equal chance would have “saved” the ruffians.

Departures of the Orizaba - The ship Regulator safe - Fire - reported Gold Mine - Orders in reference to vessels - French Observance of Good Friday

San Francisco, March 3d

Steamship Orizaba carried only forty-five passengers all told, and $1,104,699 in treasure. The steamer carried freight valued at $11,000 for New York.

A private dispatch from Boston, received at noon to day, announces the arrival of ship Regulator, heretofore reported burned.  Greenbacks left off at 64.

Seven or eight frame buildings at the northeast corner of Powell and Chestnut streets, owned by Dr. H.A. DAPIERRIS, were destroyed by fire between three and four o?clock this morning. As the wind was blowing, the flames were very rapid, and many of the inmates escaped only in their night clothes. The buildings were valued at $5,000; no insurance. W.V. OPPENHEIM?s soap factory was consumed; loss, $2,500. The buildings were set on fire.  There have been rumors afloat some days past that rich and extensive gold mines have been found in Mt. Diablo. Upwards of a thousand persons have gone from this city. There is some belief that the story was gotten up to benefit steamboat and stage interests.

Notice is given at the Custom House that vessels navigating waters between Mare Island and Vallejo must show their colors in the day time, and will not be allowed to pass at night without first communicating their intentions to the commandant.

The French corvette Corneille displayed her flags at half mast and fired hour guns to-day, in commemoration of Good Friday.

 

Silver Lode Near Dutch Flat - The Dutch Flat Enquirer of April 2d has the following:

It is reported, and we doubt not on good authority, that an extensive and rich silver ledge has been struck but a short distance from our town. The first point discovered was upon Cold Springs Hill, about two and a half miles from Dutch Flat. As soon as it became known, hundreds of miners and speculators rushed to the silver region, and, no doubt, with bright dreams upon their future prospects. The staking off process was immediately commenced, and in a few hours those who were fortunate enough to be first on the ground had secured for themselves and friends several thousand feet.  Representations are made that two assays have been made of rock taken from his ledge, one in San Francisco and the other in Washoe, and the returns made show the yield to be, in silver, $20, and in gold, $5 per ton. If this statement be correct, no reasonable doubt can exist as to the richness and extent of the silver and gold leads in the Dutch Flat and Mountain Springs Districts.

FATAL AFFRAY - A fatal affray occurred at Grizzly Bend, nine miles below Chico, lately, between two men named respectively Daniel CASEY and Frank BIRDSALL, in the course of which the former was stabbed several times by the latter, and so severely that he died the next morning. The difficulty was about some land on which CASEY was located. BIRDSALL gave himself up at Chico, and was held to bail in $1,000 to answer the charge of manslaughter.  He says he was unconscious of having inflicted the fatal blow.

SENT UP - William FITZPATRICK, lately arrested in Sacramento for cutting night watchman BROWN of the Tehama House, San Francisco, has been identified there, and sent up to the Court of Sessions for trial, bail having been demanded in the sum of $1,000.

MATTERS AT AURORA - A correspondent of the Union, writing from this place, March 30th, says:

Last night again, two stages came in, with twenty-six passengers, and it is a marvel to the citizens where they all find lodgings and accommodation.  The Wide West Company have been digging a well for water for their mill, for the past two weeks. They now have it about completed, with twelve to fifteen feet of water, which is supposed to be ample for their purposes. The mill commenced crushing their rock this morning, and works admirably. It is far the best mill in the district, and has twenty stamps (straight battery), and forty Walekce paws, with the most approved machinery. They are running a tunnel to their ledge, so as to bring the rock direct to the batteries. The Antelope mill is running constantly, crushing rock from their ledge, of which they are taking out an abundance. The Bodie mill has a contract to crush 1,000 tons of rock from the Bodie Consolidation No. 1. The Union mill is crushing rock from the Pond ledge, which yields from forty to seventy dollars to the ton, and they have hardly got their ledge opened.  Gregroy’s mill is crushing from the Sunbeam ledge, which is also scarcely opened.  Winters’ mill has been sold to the Del Norte Consolidation Company.  Last night, when the stage arrived from Carson, news was brought in that the previous evening as two horses were standing in front of Jack WRIGHT’s, the stage station on the east branch of Walker river, a man mounted one of them and started at full speed for this place. Two men from the station mounted horses and rode in pursuit, overtaking him near Sweetwater, about thirty miles distant. They called to him to stop, and which he paid no attention, when one of them drew a pistol and shot him. The person who fired the pistol took off the man?s coat and put it under his head, and left him.  As the stage passed, twenty-four hours after, the corpse was lying by the roadside. The dead man is a stranger. The Coroner of Mono county was notified of the fact, but he decided it was out of his jurisdiction and declined attending to the case.

[ The individual referred to above as having been shot is supposed to be James SEARS, whose case was lately mentioned in the Union. - Eds. Union.] The Virginia Union has the following version of this affair:

A communication to the Virginia Daily Union, and dated at Wright’s Bridge, March 30th, tells us that while a traveler was at dinner in Maybury’s Station, a man boldly stole his horse and rode off. The traveler went to Wright’s Bridge, on the road between Genoa and Aurora, and having told his story, young RODGERS mounted a horse and started in pursuit of the thief. He came up with him at Sweetwater Ranch, and commanded him to stop;  but he rode the faster, and RODGERS gave chase, calling upon him to stop; but failing in her persuasion, he drew his pistol and shot the thief, killing him almost instantly. The name of the man killed is not known. RODGERS is justified by all the people living in the section of country where he belongs.

The Departure of the Orizaba - The following named passengers sailed for Panama in this steamer April 3d:

Mrs. John BARTON, child and servant; Mrs. John FOWLER, two children and

servant; John W. HENDRIE, Silas W. JOHNSON, James G. STEELE, John HOOPER,

E.B. WILLIAMS, Mrs. M. DU PRATT, G.C. BAILEY, J.N. BAILEY, David PORTER,

Joseph W. GLOVER, Joshua BLENN, George KINGSBURY, Mr. CARVER, Mrs. LIMBACKER

and two children; Geo. W. PENNY, Mrs. Rufina FOSTER, Arthur S. BARTHOLEMEW,

A.M. MITCHELL, Mrs. Ellen CASSIDY, J.J. MORNER, R.R. PROVINES, L.L. LAURENS.

The account given by exchanged officers, lately confined as prisoners  in Richmond, of a riot of women in that city, if reliable, may be considered as pretty strong testimony of the scarcity of food in that region. The women would have bread, and they broke open public and private stores in order to obtain it. It is the first affair of the kind that has ever occurred in the United States, though such riots have been witnessed in the city of Paris. A community must be in a terrible state of destitution where the women arm themselves by thousands and demand bread.

FATAL ACCIDENT- On Thursday, April 9th, John TURNER, known as Peg Leg Turner, met with a fatal accident in Butte county. As he was riding a horse on LYNCH?s ranch, about twelve miles below Oroville, the horse becoming frightened, threw TURNER, his head striking a stake and causing his death.

UNION LEAGUE IN TRINITY COUNTY - A correspondent of the Union, writing from

Douglas City, Trinity county, April 7th, give the following particulars of the forming of a Union League in that place. Let others “go and do likewise.”

Having noticed in your truly patriotic paper several editorials urging the necessity of a more perfect organization of Union men in the State, and suggesting the formation of Union Leagues, in imitation of those existing in the Eastern States, I have deemed it proper to inform you that the Union men of this district have already organized and established an institution under the name of the ?Douglas City Union League,? with Constitution and ritual adopted, numbering over one hundred members. We have possibly been premature in our action [Not at all. Eds. Union]; but conceived it at this time to be necessary; have acted and are willing to leave it to you for elaboration as an example fit to be followed in other portions of the State. We expect within the next two weeks to have established with uniformity one in every election precinct in this county. I have written the Union Central Committee, advising them of our action, and urging the recommendation for the establishment of similar institutions in other portions of the State.  Uniformity would, however, seem to be necessary, and for this purpose we will with pleasure, upon proper application, furnish to parties in any part of the State a printed copy of our Constitution and working ritual, provided the application comes signed by parties properly qualified by attestation as to their loyalty and devotion to this Government. It might be proper for me to suggest that in districts having militia companies the members of such should be induced to for the nucleus.

NICARAGUA ROUTE - By a dispatch from New York to the agent here we learn that the America, with the passengers hence by steamer Moses Taylor, March 11th, arrived in New York on the morning of the 8th of April, they having crossed the Isthmus of Nicaragua without detention or trouble of any kind.  The dispatch also states that the Moses Taylor would not be due at San Francisco  before the 16th or 17th, being obliged to go to Realejo for coal.  To avoid this detention, the Company intend coaling hereafter at Acapulco.  The clipper-ship White Falcon, with 1,500 tons of coal, will be dispatched for that port immediately, in order to give the Moses Taylor her coal on her next trip.

COAL MINE - A rich coal mine was discovered a few days since but a short distance from the new silver mines between the South and Cold forks of Cottonwood, about eighteen miles from Red Bluff. The mine is said to be extensive, the lead which was discovered being six feet thick, pure coal, and burns finely, leaving but little if any ashes.

ROBBERY IN CALAVERAS - On Friday evening, April 3d, the dwelling of M.  KADISCH, on Sandy Gulch, was entered and robbed by an American, a Corsican and two Mexicans of $550 in gold dust and coin. The Corsican was captured and committed to the county jail. One of the Mexicans was shot by a party who went in pursuit of the robbers.

SERIOUS ACCIDENT - A man named ROBINSON, barkeeper at the Lick House, San Francisco, was thrown from a buggy lately and sustained a very serious compound fracture of one of his legs. He was riding on the beach with a companion, when his horse became unmanageable and overturned the vehicle.

DEATH OF AN EDITOR - Reese C. FLEESON, one of the editors of the Pittsburg (Pa.) Dispatch, died in that city on March 16th, after a protracted illness.  FLEESON has been connected with the Dispatch for fifteen years, and with the Pittsburg press for a much longer period.

ACCIDENT - On Thursday night, April 9th, the house of Mrs. CONNOLLY, in Lancha Plana, was destroyed by fire. Mrs. CONNOLLY and her child were badly burned, and it is thought she can hardly survive. Her husband is at present in the Cariboo mines.

MORE GOOD THINGS - It is claimed by a paper at Virginia City that a miner is the Humboldt region, while running a tunnel, struck a lead of a substance that looks like cotton batting, and states that ship loads of it can be secured. The San Francisco Herald mentions a rumor that a starch mine has been found in Alameda county. Stock is held at stiff rates. Encouraged by this the discoverers are prospecting for shirt buttons, and had already found indication of a clothes line lead!

TROUT - Messrs. APPLETON & MILLS of San Francisco returned lately from a trouting excursion to Half Moon Bay country, having captured in twenty-six hours fishing, the round number of seven hundred trout.

HORRIBLE CRUELTY - Mary NELL, an Irishwoman, thirty-eight years of age, was

arrested lately in New York, charged with causing the death of her male child, aged five years, by burning it in such a terrible manner that it died.

FOUND DEAD - J.C. BRADBURY, a native of Massachusetts, was found dead in a room over his carpenter shop at Petaluma lately. He was habituated to excessive drinking.

ACCIDENT - Joseph SCHUPERT, of Napa, aged four years, while handling a butcher knife, lately, stuck the point into his right eye, entirely destroying the sight.

A YOUTH MISSING - A mother wishes information of her son. See advertisement in this day’s Union, headed “Information wanted of Walter McDONALD.”

HORRIBLE MURDERS ON HAWAII - By the arrival of the Nettie Merill, from Hilo,

we learn that another of those terrible tragedies which have marked the past two or three years of Hawaiian history, had taken place at Kapapala, in the District of Kau, not far from the crater of Kilauea. A native, with an ax, killed his wife, her child, and a man supposed to have been his wife?s paramour. The Government mail carrier, on his way from Kau to Hilo, arrested the murderer and brought him to Sheriff CONEY, at Hilo - Polynesian.

THE HOMICIDE AT NAPA - The following additional particulars concerning the killing of J.W. OSBORN are gathered from the Alta:

BRITTON got down from the stage near OSBORN’s house, and on approaching the dwelling  met one of OSBORN?s children, whom he asked to go and tell her father that he wanted to see him. OSBORN was at home and went out to see BRITTON, when they walked away from the house, talking. The eldest daughter of OSBORN, who is about nine years of age, went in the house and told her mother that BRITTON looked very fierce. A younger daughter, who was near the house, saw BRITTON point the pistol towards her father, and also ran into the house, saying the man was going to hurt her papa. At this moment Mrs.  OSBORN reached the door and heard three shots fired in rapid succession, and running in the direction of the sound found her husband lying on the ground.  As she grasped him in her arms he opened his eyes, recognized her, smiled faintly and fell back dead. The alarm was instantly given and pursuit of the murderer instituted. BRITTON is supposed to have shot OSBORN while the latter was standing in front of him, with his arms thrown back and his thumbs in the armholes of his waistcoat, which was a favorite position of ease with the deceased. The three balls entered the breast within a few inches of each other, and could only take effect that way by the victim not moving after the first shot was fired. The murderer, in fleeing, loaded the empty barrels of his revolver, apparently to resist in case he was overtaken. One BOGGS discovered him, and, leveling a rifle, which had no charge in it, brought him to terms, disarming and making a prisoner of him.  He was taken to Napa City and confined in jail.

Terrible Calamity - Steamer Accident and Sad Loss of Life - Captain Seeley and a Number of Passengers Killed

SAN FRANCISCO, April 30th

The steamer Senator arrived to night from the southern coast in charge of the first officer BUTTERS. Captain T.W. SEELEY was killed on the 27th instant by the bursting of the boiler of the little steamer Ida Hancock, on her trip down from New San Pedro to the anchorage of the Senator with passengers and freight. The steamer was a small propeller, owned by R.  BANNING of San Pedro, and employed as a tug and in freighting between San Pedro and the ship anchorage. The boiler was new. There were some sixty passengers on board, and the loss of life is fearful. The boat was torn to pieces, and the explosion was heard on board the Senator. Boats were sent from the steamer, and the officers and soldiers of Camp Drum hastened to render assistance. The following is the only list of killed and wounded procurable; it is not complete: Killed - Captain SEELEY, Wm. RITCHIE, W.T.B.  SANFORD, Fred. KERLIN, H.M. OLIVER, R.M. HALL, Dr. H.R. MYLES, Thos.

WORKMAN, NYE, L. SLESSINGER, M. LEVI, Richard PRICE, Joe, Chas. KINNEY,

Joseph BRYANT, Sydney JOHNSTON [son of the late A. Sydney Johnston],

GARDINER, HUBBARD, KIMBALL and MORRISON. Wounded - P. BANNING, Mrs. BANNING,

Willie BANNING, Mrs. SANFORD, Mrs. D. HEREFORD, Mrs. Sue WILSON, Chas.  CUNNINGHAM and J.L. TUCKER. Most of those reported dead were probably killed instantly. RITCHIE, Express Messenger, lived for two hours. A small portion of the Express matter was saved. There were some twenty-five killed in addition to the names reported.

[SECOND DISPATCH]

The Collectorship - Relief of Mrs. J.W.  Osborn and Family - Passengers by

the Moses Taylor - A.A. Sargent - Mexican News - Passengers by the Senator

 

SAN FRANCISCO, April 30th

It is said to be settled that LOW will succeed RANKIN as Collector. LOW was not an applicant, and only accepts the office at the urgent solicitation of Secretary CHASE. It is not known whether he will assume office immediately or wait until the 1st of July.

The subscription to the fund for the relief of the family of the late Captain OSBORN has reached the sum of $6,300, in addition to which about $2,500 has been promised.

The testimony in the EOFF murder case closed this evening.

The Moses Taylor to-day took about five hundred passengers.  A.A. SARGENT, who is unable for the present to accept the invitation to address a public meeting in this city, has published a letter in response.

NEW YORK, APRIL 29th

The Early Bird sailed from Calcutta March 7th. Cargo consists of 200 tons yellow grained milled sugar, 150 tons table rice, 221,000 gunnies. No ship loading, nor is there a chance for any for some months.  A letter dated “Chilapa, Mexico, April 16th,” says: On the 5th and 6th inst., the French, after severe fighting and suffering great slaughter, retained a portion of the town. On the 7th, however, the Mexicans repulsed them with still greater slaughter, driving them at the point of the bayonet to GARITA of Mexico, from which  place they (the French), retired to Cholula, after suffering a most terrible loss. They are now fortifying themselves.

The passengers arrived to-night by the Senator are J. HESS, J. CHEENY,

N.L. EVIL, STROBILl, G. GOLDWATER, S.H. KNOWLES, DE LA GUERRA, FRESHMAN,

THE VALIANT FINNERTY - The San Francisco Bulletin of April 29th has the following version of the assault of FINNERTY on Senator POWERS, and its consequences. The affair has already been referred to in the Union:

While the Chrysopolis was still lying at her landing at Sacramento, FINNERTY, one of the Senate porters, came on board just drunk enough, as out informant expresses it, to be abusive, and stepping up to Senator POWERS of Solano began to talk in the most outrageous style to him because he had voted with CHAMBERLAIN, Porter of Santa Cruz, WALLIS and others against the resolution to raise $1 a day the pay of attaches. At last FINNERTY pulled off his coat, threw down his hat, and evinced his anxiety to get a fight out of the Senator - but as the Senator avoided that he struck him.  A tussel followed, and FINNERTY was captured and taken off the boat.  Just as she was starting off FINNERTY appeared again on board, bare-headed and more furious than ever. Finally he struck a blow at POWERS, but did not hit him. FINNERTY then clinched, POWERS shook him off and struck him with his heavy cane. The cane did hit the deck, but not FINNERTY, and was utterly smashed. Several men now rushed in to capture the infuriated FINNERTY. Nap.  BROUGHTON drew the sword of his cane and tendered it to POWERS, but the Senator declined to take it. The drunken man was carried to the guard, and might in the melee have fared worse, but that Captain CHADWICK appeared and quelled the disturbance. That, however, did not happen until in the squeeze FINNERTY fell and some one on him. Seeing that by the fall FINNERTY was seriously hurt, he was taken below, where it was found that he had suffered a compound fracture of one of his legs. A Frenchman set the broken bone, and splinted it up. After FINNERTY had slept a while, he awoke and expressed a desire to apologize to Senator POWERS. The Senator went below, when FINNERTY told him that he must apologize! “I can’t attend to the matter myself,” said he, “but I have a brother at San Francisco who will fight you, if you don’t, any way you choose.” Later in the evening he asked if he would be able to walk up. “No,” answered a bystander, “you won’t walk again these three months.” “Oh, that’s too bad,” groaned the injured man, “I wanted sure to be at the State Convention.”

INJURED - A man named BARTON was badly injured lately by the caving of a large rock, while at work on his claim on Flume Bar, near Jacksonville, Tuolumne county; his nose was broken, his face and head badly cut.

MORE PASSENGERS BY THE MOSES TAYLOR.

The following additional passengers left in the Moses Taylor, April 30th, to proceed East via Nicaragua:

Mrs. J.O. LANG, ____ RICHARDSON, J. MEYERS, H. BOSSER, F. SHAW, J.C. LAWSON, H.D. COGSWELL, Mrs. COGSWELL, E.W. LLOYD, H. SALTONIAN, W. ROSE, J. SOLOMON, Adolph MEYERS, W. PARISH, E.P. CUTIER, E.A. LEWIS, A. MEYERS, James GRIMES, Miss J. MEAD, Mrs. LINK, Mrs. THRUG, child and infant, J.W. CROWELL, Captain F. DRAKE, James DOYLE, Dr. J.C. SPEARE, Miss M.B. FISHER, Mrs. J.B.  ROBBINS, and about 360 in steerage.

 

SENTENCE DISAPPROVED - Twenty of the Anderson Cavalry were lately condemned to death for mutiny by Court martial. General ROSECRANS disapproved of the sentence, and the men were ordered to return to duty. Their pardon is conditional on their future good behavior.

 

SYCAMORES DYING - It is stated that many of the large sycamore trees on the banks of the Yuba river and on the low lands are dying from the effects of overflow of the river.

 

EMPHATIC - General WRIGHT, in his order dismissing from service Captain C.W.C. ROWELL and First Lieutenant A.C. HASKELL of the Fourth Infantry, California Volunteers, says:

The good of the service demands, and the Government requires, that prompt and cheerful obedience shall be rendered by the inferior, and that all orders shall be executed with alacrity. The disorderly and mutinous condition of the battalion of the Fourth Infantry at Camp Drum, on the 2d of April, could have been prevented by the officers present, had they rendered proper and efficient aid to the commanding officer. Two of these officers have lost their commissions, and the fate of the others who proved derelict to their duty at that crisis is reserved for further consideration by the commanding General. The Commander of the District of Southern California (Colonel BOWIE), when the condition of affairs at Camp Drum was reported to him, should have promptly restored Major HANCOCK to the command which had been forcibly wrested from him by his subordinates, and arrested all officers and men engaged in that unlawful proceeding. The authority of the rightful commander should have been sustained; under no circumstance should a compromise have been made with mutineers.

 

AN INCIDENT - The Mariposa Gazette says that there is now living in that county a Democrat of the old school, who now belongs to the Union party and never uses the word Democrat. One of his neighbors recently asked him how it was the so determined a Democrat as he was and had been had ceased claiming to belong to that party.  The old man replied: “I was a Democrat when Democrats were for their country and advocated Democratic principles; but those who call themselves Democrats are the very men whom I have always opposed - old Tories and Know Nothings; and even traitors, in order to conceal their treason, claim to be Democrats. I can?t go with traitors - I won’t unite with the enemies of my country, and so you see I drop the name Democrat, and am only a Unionist.” There are many more of like opinions.

 

FLOWERS OVER THE MOUNTAINS - A man named CLEMENS has arrived in Virginia

City from Sacramento with a wagon load of flowers. The majority of them were in fine condition, the pots having been carefully packed in damp straw. The load consisted of about two hundred plants, embracing a great variety of roses, geraniums, verbenas, fuchsias, orange trees, oleanders - in fact almost every species of flower known to house culture. The prices of the plants ranged from $3 to $10 a pot, the geraniums and orange trees being the extremes, while the roses were all $5 a pot, irrespective of quality. The plants sold quite rapidly. Mrs. CLEMENS took over a load about two weeks since.

ROBBER - A cabin of Anderson & Co., near the Buena Vista ranch, Nevada county, was entered lately and robbed of a $400 check and several articles of clothing.

 

FATAL ACCIDENT - A workman in the Ophir mine, named Jim CALLAHAN, fell down

a shaft of that claim lately, at Virginia City, a distance of sixty-four feet, and was instantly killed.

BY TELEGRAPH TO THE UNION

Eoff Acquitted - Treasure Receipts - Funeral of Captain Seeley – Further Particulars of the Explosion - Arrival

SAN FRANCISCO, May 1st.

The topic of conversation to-night is the acquittal of Joseph EOFF for the murder of CHAPMAN. The jury retired soon after four this evening, and were only absent a few moments whey they returned with a verdict of not guilty.  It was proved that CHAPMAN fired the first shot, though the testimony altogether seemed to show that EOFF incited the difficulty and intended to hurt CHAPMAN.  The verdict occasions much surprise as the case was prosecuted with great vigor.

 

Receipts of treasure from the interior since last steamer day amount to $1,700,000. Gold bars are $20@330. The Gould and Curry Company sold to-day $75,000 at ¼ premium. Legal tenders, 64@66.

 

Four hundred passengers are booked for the Constitution to-morrow.  James M. McDONALD sues the Omnibus Railroad Company for $25,000 damages for breaking his leg.

 

The funeral of Captain SEELEY to-day was very largely attended. The flags of the hipping were at half mast. The telegraph wires to Los Angeles, which have been down for a month, were put in working order this afternoon and the following dispatch was received:

“Los Angeles, May 1st - The latest particulars from the explosion of the Ada Hancock are as follows: The bodies found are those of Thomas H. SEELEY, Captain of the steamer Senator; William RITCHIE, Express Messenger of Wells, Fargo & Co.; Charles KING, of Fort Tejon; a Mexican, name and whereabouts unknown; Hiram KIMBALL and ____ ATKINSON, Mormon missionaries from Salt Lake; Joseph BRYANT, Captain of the steamer Ada Hancock; A.P. GARDNER, La Paz; SWEENY, LINSBY, a teamster, man unknown; William S.B. SANFORD, of Los Angeles; T.E. KEELIN, of Tejon Reservation; Captain NYE, R. M. HALL, San Francisco, H.M. OLIVER, of La Paz (the head, shoulders and chest only of Oliver were found); C.P. HUBBARD, of La Paz; Thos. H. WOODMAN, chief clerk of Banning; Dr. R.H. MYLES, Los Angeles; two colored men, R. PRICE and Wm.  Jan. PRATT, of Colorado; Sydney JOHNSTON, eldest son of General A. Sydney JOHNSTON, of Los Angeles. The following list includes those who were known to be on the steamer and whose bodies have not yet been recovered: Mr. LEVY, San Bernardino; L. SCHLOSSINGER, Los Angeles; John RODGERS, deck hand. It is stated that some fifteen or twenty not known were lost, whose bodies are not yet recovered. Several casualties are noted: A. CHELLIS, of San Luis Obispo, suffered a fracture of the thigh. Wm. W. WARDELL, of Santa Cruz, suffered a contusion. John GETTAMAR, of Siskiyou county, had a broken arm. Charles CUNNINGHAM, from the Colorado mines, a contusion. Henry BEER, Yreka, contusion. J. PHILLIPS, deck hand, fracture of the elbow. Wm. JACKSON, Colorado mines, scald and contusion. G.L. TUCKER, of San Francisco, formerly of this place, fracture of both bones of left leg. Mrs. BANNING, contusion of the head and probably some internal injuries. Mrs. SANFORD, mother of Mrs. BANNING, had her right leg and left arm fractured. Miss M. HEREFORD suffered a contusion of the head. Mr. BANNING, internally injured. Miss, WILSON, daughter of D. WILSON, contusion. A.C. YEARY, fracture of the leg.  WELSH, scalded slightly. Mrs. L. COHN, two children and servant, of Los Angeles, were on board the Hancock. Mrs. COHN escaped with a slight contusion. The servant escaped uninjured, and was taken into a boat, having the child, an infant, in her arms, which received only a very slight scratch upon the left side of the head. Mrs. COHN showed herself a heroine, displaying great presence of mind; she recovered her oldest child, about two years of age from the water among the fragments of the wreck. For some time its life was considered hopeless, but it was restored by the perseverance of the mother, and by frictions and bathings with brandy . The marks left upon it have the appearance of a scald, otherwise the child appears to be in perfect health. Two children of Mr. BANNING were also on board, of whom one only received a slight scald. Both of these children were saved from the wreck by Darkness, a colored servant girl of Mrs. BANNING, who displayed undaunted courage and rendered great assistance to numbers of others. During the whole excitement she remained perfectly calm, and was the means of keeping several of the ladies;? heads above water for some time after the vessel had gone down. Only three person besides the little child of Mr.  BANNING (viz: the child of Mrs. COHN and the two servants as above states) escaped without injury. William KING, a young man, and a fireman and a Mexican escaped unscathed. The explosion was instantaneous. No vestige of the boiler or the flues upon which it stood were left. Pieces of the shattered boiler were found upon a small island a distance of three-quarters of a mile from the wreck. Splinters from the vessel were thrown into Government Corral, three-quarters of a mile from the scene of the disaster.  BANNING himself was thrown a hundred feet. At ten o?clock this morning BANNING was in a critical state from injuries received internally, though Dr. GRIFFIN has hopes of his recovery. The body of Captain SEELEY shielded BANNING from instant death.”

Arrived - British bark Panteloss, 181 days from Liverpool, to Depuy, Foulkes & Co.

 

COPPER IN AMADOR - A correspondent at Ione Valley writes as follows:

The copper excitement still continues in this vicinity. Many are meeting with very flattering prospects. The Newton Company is taking out very rich ore and in large quantities. A number of others have found good ore, but are not deep enough yet to find it in large quantities. Claims are changing hands at $2 to $15 per foot unprospected.

 

BRUTALITY - On the night of the 15th of April some villain entered the inclosures of William NIX, on Three Mile creek, Oregon, and singling out a fine American horse, cut his throat so as to cause death, and then cut and hacked the animal in the most shocking manner.

SHOOTING AFFAIR - In San Francisco lately a man named John LAWLOR, who some time since had a difficulty with J.M. CANNON, which led to a challenge to fight a duel being passed between them, and for which they were arrested and afterwards discharged from the Police Court, went into the bar-room of the Bank Exchange, where he found CANNON conversing with some friends. LAWLOR, it is said, immediately drew a revolver and fired four shots at CANNON, one of the balls entering the breast pocket of  his coat and afterwards discovered buried in the leaves of a memorandum book , where it had fortunately lodged. LAWLOR was arrested, but was released from custody on giving bonds in the sum of $500 to appear before the Police Court for examination. The charge of assault and battery with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, made against him, was continued in the Police Court until Monday, May 4th.

DROWNED - On Wednesday, April 29th, an empty team , on its way to Red Bluff, attempted to cross Cottonwood creek, and when in the swift water the king-bolt came out and the bed of the wagon was capsized, precipitating three men who were in it into the water, one of whom by the name of MULLARKY, was drowned.

KILLED BY INDIANS - Jonas L. BRAYTON and Isaac WANDELL, of Mendocino county, were attacked and murdered by the Indians, on the Pyatt river (Oregon), on the night of March 3d. The murdered men, in company with N. JEWETT and John BURTON, were on their way from the Boise mines in Auburn. At the time of the killing the party were preparing to camp for the night, and had become separated in the operation.

PETITION FOR PARDON - A petition to Governor STANFORD for the pardon or commutation of the death sentence, in the case of Jacob GREER, now under sentence of death in the Butte county jail, has been circulated about Oroville for several days, but does not appear to be extensively signed.

Shooting and Lynch Law at Vallejo

VALLEJO, May 6th

Last night about eight o’clock, as a young man named SHAFLEY, in company with a man named PRESTON, was returning home, about a mile from town, a man (supposed to be Manuel VERA) fired on them from the wheat field adjoining the road, wounding SHAFLEY. VERA was promptly arrested, and to-day waived examination. He was placed under $10,000 bonds. While the bond was being made out, this evening, about sixty men, blacked and masked, armed with pistols and knives, broke into WILSON’s store, where the prisoner was, picked up the Sheriff (who had just arrived) and carried him out. They then shot the prisoner dead. The man PRESTON shot VERA, severely wounding him, some months ago, and it?s thought he intended killing him instead of SHAFLEY. SHAFLEY’s wounds are serious but not dangerous. Two balls have been extracted, and he is doing well.

I.O. of G.T. - At a regular meeting of Capitol Lodge, No. 51, I.O.G.T., held on Tuesday evening, at Graham’s Hall, D.L. TOWNSEND, D.G.W.C.T., installed the following officers for the ensuing term: Theodore REICHERT, W.C.T.; Miss Frank M. STEVENS, W.V.T.;  Samuel SIMES, W.S.; Miss MITCHEL, W.T.; Albert GALLETIN, W.F.S.; D.L. TOWNSEND, W.M.; Miss Emma FISKE, W.D.M.; Miss HOSS, W.I.G.; J. THOMPSON, W.O.G.; Mrs. D.B. STEWART, W.R.H.S.; Miss Mary FISKE, W.L.H.S.; William C. BARRETT, W, Chaplain; F.E. MITCHELL, P.W.C.T.

SOCIABILITY - Yesterday forenoon a fellow, who was partially drunk, on J street, attempted to kiss a lady who was walking on the sidewalk. She did not concur, but informed N. Greene CURTIS of the fact, giving a description of the offender. On this description, officer SHEEK arrested a man named CORRINGTON. The prisoner was taken from the station house early last evening by the officer for the purpose of being identified, but as he was not brought back again it is presumed that he was not the right man and was discharged.

GRAND LARCENY - Yesterday morning J.H. WARWICK missed his gold watch at his residence, on Third street. Having cause to suspect a Chinaman who was employed in the house, he arrested him and took him to the station house.  John denied all knowledge on the subject, and, of course, refused to give any information. On returning home and instituting a thorough search, WARWICK found the watch wrapped up and secreted under an iron pot in the kitchen. The Chinaman will be examined to-day.

ARRESTS - John DOE was arrested yesterday by special officer DAKE, for assault and battery; Jim Chinaman, by J.H. WARWICK, on a charge of grand larceny in stealing a gold watch; Joseph CARRINGTON, by officer SHEEK, for misdemeanor; and Julia DAVIS, by officer LESTER, for assault and battery on Catherine CRONEN.

A COUNTER CARD - W. MANTES publishes another card in connection with the BURKE and HOLL imbroglio, stating that he authorized the BURKE statement of the affair.

BAILED OUT - William PIERCE, who has been confined in the county jail several months for killing Frank WHITE at Daylor?s ranch, gave bail yesterday in the sum of $3,000, and was released from custody.

GOLD IN MENDOCINO - The Mendocino Herald says a party is engaged prospecting in the mountains between Clear Lake and Round Valley, for what is said to be an exceedingly rich deposit of gold somewhere in that region, discovered a number of years ago by some unfortunate wanderer over the mountains, who, finding a rock that bore unmistakable evidence of gold, pounded it up and extracted half a pound of gold. But he never could find the place again; and many other ardent seekers after his lost lode have shared the same ill luck from year to year.

MINING IN SOUTH SIERRA - The Sierra Democrat of May 9th says:

The Sacramento company opened a new quartz ledge near Chips’ last week, which promises to be a big thing. Gold in considerable quantity is plainly visible to the naked eye. The French Ravine company are still pounding out their regular eighteen pounds per day, with a fair prospect ahead of a good long run at that rate. Shares are held at ten thousand dollars.

BUTTE - The Butte Record of May 9th says:

The copper epidemic still continues in this county. A new district was formed last week on the north side of Feather river and east of the North Fork. Numerous companies are at work sinking shafts, and a short time will determine the richness of our copper mines. A specimen of ore from a ledge near Forbestown, was recently assayed and found to contain eighteen per cent of copper. New discoveries in this vicinity are reported almost daily.

We take the following interesting items from the Oroville Union May 9th:

We learn from several citizens of Flea Valley that the bones of a dead man were found near that place last week, and recognized from papers and clothing to be the remains of J.D. HOGAN, who left Flea Valley February 18, 1863, for Dogtown, but having never reached his destination, is supposed to have perished in a snow storm the night of his departure.  Our correspondent at Inskip, whose letter arrived too late for us to give it entire, under the date of May 8th, writes that the Oroville and Honey Lake road, via Inskip, is fully open.

On Monday last, ZENONIA, who resides about five miles from town on the Chico road, was kicked by a Spanish horse, breaking the right cheek bone and forcing a fragment of it up in front of the eye.

Jacob STIMER, one of the proprietors of the brewery, at Dogtown, was thrown from his wagon on Saturday last, and sustained a slight fracture of the skull.

There was a grand gathering of loyal men at the Court House on Thursday evening, for the purpose of forming a Union League. Seneca EWER was chosen President, and Dr. James GREEN Secretary.

A Union League was organized at Forbestown on Saturday last - L.P. SMITH President and S.W. WHIPPLE Secretary.

MINING IN SHASTA - The Courier of May 9th has the following:

The last week has developed more facts as to the great richness of the Pittsburg mines than any time previously. A rich assay of silver has been obtained from rock taken from the original Minnesota claim, also the Baxter and Kellenger claims. The owners of the original Kellenger and Baxter claims have placed lock and key upon their tunnels to prevent the removal of valuable minerals found in theses claims.

The mining claim of HOY & KENNEDY, located near the Sacramento river, below Waugh?s Ferry, has yielded for the past week from $900 to $1,700 a day for three hands. This valuable claim is supposed to be a continuance of the Bunker Hill claim, so long noted for its richness.

A HUSBAND ON THE RAMPAGE - The Forest Hill Courier of May 9th has the following:

The usually quiet town of Forest Hill, and neighborhood, was put into a flutter of excitement on Tuesday evening, about ten o’clock, by the report that a jealous husband had attempted to assassinate the destroyer of his peace! Edward FLETCHER and John E. CROPSEY have been part owners of the India Rubber tunnel, at the “Gardens,” for a number of years past. FLETCHER is a married man, and CROPSEY boarded in the family. About four months ago, FLETCHER and his wife separated - each occupying separate dwellings. Common report has it, that no small amount of clashing, crimination and recrimination has passed between them - and that the peace and quiet of the neighborhood has been frequently disturbed by the parties. About half past nine o?clock, on Tuesday evening, FLETCHER approached CROPSEY near his cabin, and, without speaking a word, commenced firing a pistol. One ball struck CROPSEY about an inch above the left temple, but glanced off; another ball struck the left cheek, passed through along the jaw bone and lodged in the neck; another ball struck the left breast, passing through and coming out the left shoulder blade. He is living and doing well. FLETCHER was arrested, and after an examination before Justice SCOTT was committed to jail to answer before the Grand Jury, the fourth Monday of May. The defendant intends to prove, he says, that he was justified. Both parties have been hard working, industrious miners.

CLUBBING A SECESSIONIST - A telegram from Jackson, Amador county, to the San Francisco Call, and dated on the 12th, says:

“Yesterday, two men went to the Mountain Springs House, between this place and Ione City. One of them commenced hurrahing for Jeff DAVIS, when Mr. FARMER, proprietor of the house, picked up a club and went after him. The man, drawing a knife, made several attempts to cut FARMER. Both the men have been arrested.

HOMICIDE IN PLACER - A man named LINDSAY killed a person whose name we have

not heard, at Stewart?s Flat, in Placer county, April 12th, the day of the election on the Pacific Railroad question. It is stated, says the Bee, that LINDSAY was Judge of the Election, and that the man with whom he had the difficulty came to the polls with an Irishman, whose vote he wished to have recorded. LINDSAY challenged the vote, and at this the other person got angry and commenced the assault. He got LINDSAY’s head down under the table.  LINDSAY managed to strike him over the head with his pistol. His opponent continued his attack, and then LINDSAY, managing to raise himself a little, fired his weapon, the ball passing through the left breast of his adversary, killing him instantly. LINDSAY was at once arrested, but it would seem that he was justified in what he did. We are told that LINDSAY has relatives residing in this city.

NEW STAGE ROUTE OVER THE MOUNTAINS - MONAHAN & WHIPPLE are about starting the stage line and saddle train from Sonora (California) to Aurora. They will run their stages to the Long Barn or Strawberry Valley, and then  carry passengers on horseback over the summit, where they will take the stages again for Aurora. The whole distance will be about one hundred and twenty miles, and only thirty miles will be ridden in the saddle.

NEARLY A FATAL ACCIDENT - A daughter of Mrs. BURNETT, at Copperopolis, fell into a well thirty feet deep, April 11th, and was only saved from drowning by the aid of Samuel PIKE, who descended into the well on some hose and sustained the girl in the water (twelve feet deep), until they were both drawn out by persons about. The child was twelve years of age, and sustained no injury from accident.

FATAL ATTACK BY INDIANS - The Dalles Journal of May 4th says: :”A company of prospectors, five in number, who left Canon City a week ago yesterday, were attacked in camp the next morning, within about fifteen miles of the south fork of John Day river, by a party of Indians. They were all asleep when the attack was made. Three of them succeeded in making their escape in different directions, in the dark, all more or less wounded by shot and arrows. The Indians fired in among them as they were sleeping in a tent, according to the statements of the three who escaped. The other two are supposed to have been killed by the Indians. The names and residences of the men who escaped were RUTHERFORD and MARCELLUS of California, and Vincent RAND of Portland, Oregon. The men who are supposed to be killed are Hiram TALCOTT of California, and William GALLAGHER of Salem, Oregon. A party of some nineteen or twenty men at Canon City volunteered their services as soon as the news of the affair reached there, and immediately started in pursuit of the Indians. The body of  F. GALLAGHER, late of Portland, was found a short distance from Cherry Creek last Wednesday. The body presented every appearance of a most atrocious murder having been committed. He had been shot through the head with a pistol ball. The body had been robbed of everything but a portion of his clothing. The pockets of the pants were turned inside out. Some of the clothing had been buried. The murder is believed to have been committed by one BERRYWAY, with whom GALLAGHER had been in company on his way from Canon City to this place.

PASSENGERS FOR THE EAST - The following named passengers sailed in the Orizaba, May 13th, for Panama, bound for the East:

B. BERNARD, Joseph REED, Bishop Hill’s servant, James S. PATTERSON, Wm. C. LEACHMAN, Wm. DENSON, J.T. BARKER, James M. CRAWFORD and wife, B. PHELPS, Mrs. E. A. THEILER, H.W. APPLEGATE, Charles JENKINS, nurse and two infants;Dr. A.J. THEBIDO, Joseph LEWIS, sister and child; Spencer PORTER, Rev. Bishop HILL, Mrs. HOYT and daughter, A.B.

HENSON, Richard LEIVAGE, Miss M.L. HINCKLEY, Joseph REINOR.

ARRESTS - G.W. ROSS and Charles P. DUANE were arrested in San Francisco lately for tearing down a fence they claim as their property, near Mission Dolores. They gave bail in one hundred dollars each to answer the charge.

DEATH OF THE MAYOR OF HOBOKEN - John R. JOHNSON, Mayor of Hoboken, died at his residence in that city on the morning of April 18th.

STRIKE AT GOLD HILL (N.T.) - The Virginia Union of May 12th says:

Gold Hill is determined not to be excelled by Virginia in strikes at least. Yesterday morning, as some workmen in that place were engaged in excavating in the rear of the Golden Eagle Hotel, they struck a well defined quartz ledge. A.F. WOODSIDE, A.W. McINTYRE, J.H. WOODSIDE, W.H. WHITE and H.McGINN, styling themselves the Woodside Company, immediately located a claim of twelve hundred feet. The ledge was christened the McIntyre Ledge. A comfortable number of extensions have been located, both north and south.

TERRIBLE MURDER - The Butte Record of May 16th has the following:

On Tuesday morning, about five miles above Dogtown, a man named Nick JOHNSON waylaid and killed his wife (from whom he had separated some time since), about a quarter of a mile from her residence. Her brother was driving cattle near the place and heard her cry. When he came in sight, JOHNSON had hold of her and was striking her with a butcher knife in the side. He attempted to stop him, but JOHNSON attacking him he ran for help.  On his return she was dead - her head nearly severed from her body. The neighbors turned out in search of the murderer, and about half an hour after the report of a gun was heard. On repairing to the spot, JOHNSON was found dead, he having placed his gun under his chin, the charge coming out at the top of his head.

The Appeal says:

The only cause which can be assigned for the deed is that the woman had accused her husband of improper conduct with her little daughter, a charge which those who knew the parties regarded as untrue.

SHASTA - Efforts are making to organize a military company in this place, and seventy-two names have already been procured. The election of officers is to take place May 28th. E. GARTER superintends the organization. 

SANITARY - The San Francisco Sanitary Committee received on Thursday, May 21st, from various sources, $1,087, of which amount $876 was from Dutch Flat. 

FIRE IN SIERRA - The town of Wet Ravine, Sierra county, was almost destroyed by fire last week. Loss, $75,000. 

EXECUTION IN BUTTE - The Oroville Union of May 23d has the annexed account of an execution in that place:

Adie ECKRON, convicted of the murder of Jergen JANSSEN, his mining partner, at Morris Ravine, some eighteen months ago, was hung yesterday in this town at twelve o’clock. The execution took place in a small inclosure adjoining the Court House. The prisoner appeared devout and to fully realize his awful position, but at no time was there the slightest emotion or tremor perceptible. Rev. R. HOBART attended him in his last moments. He did not appear to suffer much, and was probably dead within six minutes after he was swung off, although the body was allowed to hang some ten or twelve minutes. He protested his innocence to the last; hoped that he would be the last innocent man to suffer, and that the real criminal would soon be discovered. ECKRON, we should judge, was about forty years of age and a native of North Germany. He was convicted almost exclusively on circumstantial evidence. Sheriff MIDDLETON performed his disagreeable duties with promptness and propriety. Jacob GREER, who was sentenced to be hung at the same time, has been respited by the Governor for seven days. 

THE ALLMAN AND McKENZIE SHOOTING AFFAIR.

The examination of John ALLMAN, charged with an assault with a deadly weapon, for shooting at and wounding Charles McKENZIE with a pistol, at Broadway wharf, on the night of the 11th instant, was concluded in the Police Court yesterday afternoon. The testimony of McKenzie, who was unable to appear in Court, was taken at his rooms, and was to the effect that Allman fired first, although he admitted having shot at him on two previous occasions. The testimony of other witnesses in reference to the shooting bout between the two parties on the night in question contradicted that of McKenzie’s in several particulars, and went to show that Allman acted in self defense. The Police Judge took the case under advisement, and will probably render a decision in a day or two. - San Francisco Journal, May 22d.

FIRE IN MARYSVILLE - The following particulars of a late fire in Marysville are taken from the Express of May 28th:

Between four and five o’clock, yesterday morning, a fire broke out in the stables in the rear of the Pacific House, running from A street to Yuba alley, on the corner of Seventh street. The flames burst out in some hay, about sixty tons of which was consumed in bales. The fire spread very rapidly, reaching the main brick stable, in which were ten horses, five belonging to WASHBURN, one horse and buggy owned by A.P. BARNES, and four horses owned by  the proprietors of the stable, COOK & RUSSELL, all of which were destroyed. The poor animals were all burnt to a crisp. The flames communicated to the Pacific House, a two-story brick hotel, occupied by J.M.  BELRUDE, destroying the entire contents. Nothing was saved, the inmates having barely time to escape with their lives. BELRUDE was absent at the time. The flames communicated to the brick store adjoining, occupied by D.S.  HYAMS, and the goods, consisting of groceries, etc., were injured to the amount of some $1,000, which is covered by insurance. The buildings were owned by HYAMS, and the loss is estimated at $3,000, on which there was an insurance of $1,500. The fire was the work of an incendiary, a deranged person.

BY TELEGRAPH TO THE UNION

Body Identified - Survey Approved

SAN FRANCISCO, May 31st

The body found near Market street wharf is identified as Wm. LAKE, officer of the ship King LEAR.

Judge HOFFMAN approves the first official survey of the lake of Merced ranch in this county. It is to touch the Burri Burri boundary.

A SPICY REPLY - About two months ago, as was stated in the Union at that time, a large meeting was held in the Tabernacle, at Salt Lake City, at which Brigham Young presided, the purpose of which was to force the Governor and Associate Justices of Utah to leave the Territory. A Committee of three was appointed to wait upon the above named officers and report the action of the meeting. They first proceeded to the Executive mansion, where Judge Thomas J. DRAKE resided, and informed him and Governor HARDING that “the Mormons did not like them, and wished them to get away from the Territory as soon as possible.”  The Judge listened patiently until the Committee concluded, and then getting between then and the door, replied as follows:

The communication you have made are of some importance, as they are intended to affect me. I desire to say something before you go. It is no small thing to request a citizen to leave a country. Are you aware of the magnitude of the business you have undertaken? I deny that you have any cause for such conduct toward me. I am an American citizen, and have a right to go to any part of the Republic. I have a right to petition or ask the Government to amend the laws, or to pass laws. You, TAYLOR and PRATT, are men of experience, and reputed to be men of learning, and ought to know better than to insult a man by such means. It is mean and contemptible. On you part, TAYLOR, a foreigner, it is impudence unequaled. You, PRATT, a citizen, should know better than to trample on the rights of a citizen by performing such a dirty enterprise. Your resolutions are false, and the man who drafted them knew them to be so. I understand that Brigham Young, in the meeting in the Tabernacle, called me a fool, and a tool of the Governor.  [Here Taylor admitted that Young did say so.] Go back to Brigham Young, your master - that embodiment of sin, shame and disgust - and tell him that I neither fear him, nor love him, nor hate him, but that I utterly despise him. Tell him, whose tools and tricksters you are, that I did not come here by his permission, and that I will not go away at his desire, or by his direction. I have given no cause of offense to any one. I have not entered a Mormon’s house since I came to Utah Territory. Your wives and daughters have not been disturbed by me, and I have not even looked upon your concubines and lewd women. I am no skulk from the punishment of crime. I tell you, that if you, or the man that you so faithfully serve, attempt to interfere with my lawful business, you will meet with trouble of a character you do not expect. A horse thief, or a murderer has, when arrested, a right to speak in Court; and unless in such capacity, and under such circumstances, never do you dare to speak to me again.

THE CASUALTY IN DOWNIEVILLE - The Sierra Democrat of May 30th has the following particulars of a late sad accident in Downieville:

On Wednesday last while a portion of the citizens of Downieville were engaged in firing a salute on account of the supposed capture of Vicksburg, First Lieutenant M.M. KNOX and Second Lieutenant William A. DONALDSON of Company K, Sixth Regiment California Volunteers, were mangled in the most horrible manner by a premature discharge of the cannon used on the occasion.  The facts, so far aw they can be learned, are as follows: The cannon was old, had been for two years exposed to the weather, without any proper care, had become very rusty, rough and powder-burned inside, had been spiked, and in removing the spike the vent had been bruised, rendering it a difficult undertaking to prevent air from passing through while loading. Several rounds had been fired, when the vent became stopped - this occurred several times, which proves that the cannon was foul. Immediately before the last cartridge was put into the cannon the person tending the vent cautioned Lieutenants KNOX and DONALDSON, telling them that there was fire in the chamber, and not to load until they had cleaned out the cannon; but his suggestions were unheeded by them, and they - both having hold of the rammer and in the act of pushing home the cartridge - were blown to pieces in the most shocking manner by a premature discharge. Lieutenant KNOX lost both eyes, his face was burned to a crisp, the left hand torn entirely off above the wrist, the right arm badly shattered, pieces of the rammer were forced deeply into the lungs and other parts of the body, which was thrown over a steep declivity and nearly into the river, some two hundred feet below. He died about five hours after the accident. Lieutenant DONALDSON was injured in a similar manner, his face being terribly burned, both eyes destroyed, both hands blown off above the wrists, and his left side severely injured.  He died at four o’clock the following morning. Both were highly esteemed in our community and all are sorrowing at their untimely and shocking death.  The funeral took place yesterday, was attended by the military and fire companies, and a numerous concourse of civilians. Military rites were performed over their grave by the National Guard, and they now, side by side, sleep their last sleep. S.W. FORBES was seriously burned in the face by the powder escaping from the vent. His thumb was badly sprained, and his eyes seriously, though not permanently injured. We have just learned that RITCHIE, who has served as gunner on a man-of-war, has examined the cannon and found in the chamber a large mass of burnt and charred rags, which must have been on fire at the time of the accident.

HOW IS IT? What do such men as Tod ROBINSON, LENT, McCORKLE, BIGLER and others of that political ilk expect to accomplish even if they succeed - which Heaven forbid - in gaining control of the State? We know - everybody knows. First, they will “oppose the Government.” Second, they will “oppose the Government.” Third and last time, they will “oppose the Government.” Al their howlings and resolutions about the Constitution and rights of citizens are buncombe, and their real object is to assist rebellion and “oppose the Government.” - Sierra democrat.

FATAL AFFRAY - An altercation took place at Eagle Creek, in Shasta county, May 24th, in which Peter LOPEZ shot and fatally wounded Matthew POINTON. The shot took effect in the abdomen and passed through the bladder, producing death on the following day. Lopez was arrested and had an examination before Justice HART, at Horsetown, on the 25th, when he was committed to the county jail, to await the action of the next Grand Jury. 

COPPER IN SHASTA - Lately one M.A. CHARSON discovered a rich copper claim on the east fork of Clear creek, about eighteen miles from Shasta. An assay was made which showed the rock to be rich. 

LEG AMPUTATED - A young man named Lorenzo ACKLEY, at Lowery’s ranch, on Butte creek, near Chico, had his leg so badly injured by the accidental discharge of a shotgun last week as to render amputation necessary. 

BOUND EAST - Dr. W.P. TILDEN, Resident Physician of the State Insane Asylum, has taken his departure for the Atlantic States by the Overland route. He will visit many of the Eastern Asylums for the insane.  

UNION MEETING IN SAN JOAQUIN - On Saturday evening, May 30th, there was an enthusiastic meeting at Woodbridge, on the Mokelumne. It was addressed by G.W. TYLER and H.B. UNDERHILL. 

FINE CHERRIES - We acknowledge the receipt of some excellent cherries of large size and the Ox Heart variety, from the garden of Mrs. E.L. NICHOLS, Horseshoe Bar, Placer county

COMMUTED - Governor STANFORD has commuted the sentence of Jacob GREER, in Butte county, from the death penalty to imprisonment in the State Prison for Life.   

INDIAN DEPREDATIONS IN TRINITY - John McCAMMON, residing on Trinity river, gives, under date of May 26th, to the Trinity Journal, the following account of Indian depredations by which he suffered:

On Thursday evening, May 14th, between seven and eight o’clock, I was attacked by some forty Indians. I was standing on the front “stoop”, when two rifle balls passed close to my head. Immediately after came a shower of balls, completely riddling the side of the house. I got my arms as soon as possible, gave my shot gun to John MYERS, who was in company with me, and consulted with him about holding the house until dark, which we concluded to do, but we soon changed our minds, as the Indians were advancing. I saw at once that we must run, which we did. We started down the river to give the alarm. I took an old Indian trail and got lost, and could not return until day-break. I then returned and found my house burned to the ground. During the night I kept close to the river, endeavoring to get to my ferry boat to cross and give the alarm. I came up to Big Flat the following day, where I got twelve men, and three from North Fork. We returned the next day to my place and found everything burned, outhouses and all. My impression is that no flour or rice was burned. Everything was packed off. I am quite certain they have a pack train. After spending an hour on Cedar Flat we went on to BRAINARD’s and found his house burned. From thence we went to WINSLETT’s and found his place burned. We then concluded to go on some three miles further, to TINSLEY’s, but we had not gone far before we fell in with his pack train. His house was safe, but the family, in company with Winslett and others, had gone to New River, and from thence to Big Flat. We accompanied Tinsley’s train to Manzanita Flat. Lower Trinity is now deserted entirely. Had we a few more men and arms, I have no doubt we could have got back a good portion of the goods and a number of redskins in the bargain. 

APPOINTMENT - Governor Stanford has appointed Miles N. MITCHELL, Commissioner of Deeds for Virginia City, Nevada Territory. 

A MURDEROUS ASSAULT - The Stockton Independent of June 1st has the following:

At about half-past nine o’clock on Friday evening last, two men, one of whom was masked, knocked at the door of the store of Dr. LOCKE at Lockeford, on the Mokelumne, and demanded admission, as they stated, for the purpose of purchasing a pair of boots. The father of Dr. Locke, who is accustomed to sleep in the store, answered the call, and as he opened the door he was struck upon the head with a pistol which knocked him senseless. He recovered, however, almost instantly, and upon gaining his footing the companion of the assassin who had struck him the blow with the pistol, as if determined to finish the work of death in which the other had failed, drew a knife and stabbed Locke three time, once in the breast and twice in the back, also cutting his hand severely in the struggle which ensued for the possession of the weapon. Locke is a man well advanced in years, and at the time of the assault upon him was alone in the store. The robbers suspecting they were in danger of arousing the neighbors, fled before their contemplated work of murder and robbery had been consummated, one of them leaving his hat behind. Who they were, there is no means of knowing. Locke is in a critical condition, and being aged and somewhat infirm his wounds have an effect upon him which it is feared may prove fatal.  

SEVERELY INJURED - William BORROUGHS, of Deadwood, Siskiyou county, met with a very severe, and perhaps fatal accident, lately, by being thrown our of a carriage.

MURDERED BY A SECESSIONIST - A correspondent of the Union, writing from Fort Yuma, May 23d, gives the following particulars of a murderous outrage:

On the return of a detachment which was sent from this place to Fort Mohave in charge of the supplies for the permanent garrison at the latter place, and stopping one night in the vicinity of La Paz - A small town located near the newly discovered placer mines in New Mexico, about one hundred and twenty miles from Fort Yuma - some of the soldiers, in company with the steamboat hands, went to the town for the purpose of purchasing some tobacco. While there and when they were gathering together for the purpose of returning to the steamer, at about nine o’clock P.M., they were attacked by a man who was confined with Showalter and others at this place, as political prisoners, and released near a year ago. Two of the men were fatally injured, the other had his left leg broken above the knee. They were all men of sober habits, attentive to their duties, and of the better class of soldiers. The shooting was done by one of Colt’s navy-sized revolvers, and by one man, who fired four shots at them as they stood in the street, accompanying the shots with the expression “Git, you sons of b___s, git.” The opinion of those who witnessed the occurrence unite in pronouncing it one of the most cold-blooded and cowardly murders ever perpetrated. There was no quarrel, no difficulty, nor were the men apprehending any. None of them were armed, and most of them were in their shirt sleeves without any coat of any kind on. They were wantonly shot down like dogs by a man wearing the garb of humanity, for no other reason than volunteering in defense of free Government and the rights of man. The murderer is quite a young man, not over twenty-two or twenty-three years of age, about six feet high, light complexion, light hair, wears a light mustache, no beard, is slimly built, and answers to the name of “Frog,” but has quite a number of aliases. He made his escape to the mountains, and is supposed to have gone toward Tucson for the purpose of joining a party on their way to rebeldom by that route.  The men killed were, C.L. WENTWORTH of Forest Hill, Placer county, and Ferdinand BEHN of Trinity. The one who had his leg broken was from San Francisco - Thomas GAINER.

PASSENGERS FOR THE EAST - The following named persons have taken passage for the East in the steamer St. Louis, which sailed yesterday:

Henry SHIVELY, H.B. CAMP. James L. BOND, Thomas T. BARHOUT, Prof. M. KELLOGG, John HUNTOON, Mrs. Annie E. VANDEWATER and two children, James F. ROGERS and wife, Miss Annie COGSWELL, Charles L.

H.B. HOLLAND, W.G. LONG, A.F. WILLIAMS, H. BLISS, S.R. MORGAN, E.D. COLE,

S.C. PORTER, L.A. GOZA, John KIRKPATRICK, J.M. HAVEN, A.P. CHAPMAN.

DREADFUL ACCIDENT AND DEATH - On Thursday, June 4th, near Volcanoville, in

El Dorado county, within sight of Forest Hill, a young man named David PALMER was felling timber to float down the Middle Fork of Yankee Slide, for mining purposes, and was killed. He chopped off a large pine tree, which in falling lodged on an oak. He then chopped the oak, but both threes toppling over suddenly, he was caught under a large limb, and instantly crushed to death.

FOR CALIFORNIA - The Rocky Mountain News, published at Denver City, Colorado Territory, says in its issue of May 19th:

Two extra Overland coaches arrived here yesterday with the following passengers: Ben HOLLADAY and servant; Master HOLLADAY; FARGO, of the firm of Wells, Fargo & Co.; D.C. BARNEY of the American Express Company; and B.R.  CHENEY, of Boston. They will remain here a few days and then proceed overland to California. It is rumored that the trip of these gentlemen across the continent is made with a view to important changes in the express business between the Atlantic and Pacific.

THE PACIFIC RAILROAD - A correspondent of the Forest Hill Courier, writing from Sacramento, lately, says:

As the Pacific road extends eastward, the Sacramento Valley Railroad declines in regular ration as a formidable opposition, and when the Pacific is completed over the mountains, the Sacramento Valley road becomes almost as dead property. It will have run its last race, and J. Mora MOSS and his French partners will find that their goose, which has been laying golden eggs for five or six years, has been killed by the great Pacific Railroad.

FATAL ACCIDENT - A dispatch dated at Benicia, June 6th, says:

About one o’clock to-day a clerk in the Commissary Department at the Benicia Barracks, by the name of KING, got into a skiff at Shirley & Co?s wharf, and pushed it into the mud. In wading back the tide caught him and he was drowned. The body was recovered and taken to the barracks.

KLAMATH COUNTY UNION CONVENTION - At this Convention, June 4th, the following nominations were made: For County Judge, S.R. SHEFFIELD; Sheriff, William GRANT; Clerk, Ales. McGREGOR; Treasurer, C.L. SAUNDERS; Assessor, John S. THOMSON; District Attorney, J.H. RAND; Public Administrator, Wm. M.  BUELL. A.P. HULSE and Augustus WALTERS were appointed delegates to attend the Union State Convention to meet at Sacramento City On the 17th of June.

The following, among the resolutions, were adopted:

Resolved, That we pledge ourselves to an unconditional support of the Administration in all constitutional measures that it may think necessary to put down the rebellion.

Resolved, That we will lay aside all former party names and prejudices, and unite in one grand effort to sustain the Government of the country in its endeavors to subdue treason.

BRUTAL MURDER - On Monday morning, June 8th, about four miles from Brownsville, on the south fork of the Cosumnes river, William ECKOHON, a Russian, shot John BARBER, a native of Switzerland, through the head, killing him instantly.  The murdered man was in his bed asleep at the time.

His head was fearfully shattered, and his brains scattered over his bed, presenting a shocking spectacle. He was a night watch on the claim of ECKOHON and others, according to the Democrat, and ECKOHON says he (ECKOHON)detected an Indian woman taking gold from the sluice of the company, and ordered BARBER to drive her away.

Lake Tahoe - The Washoe Times has the following:

The journals of California - especially those of the Union stripe - have determined that the fine sheet of water through which the dividing line between California and Washoe runs, shall resume its aboriginal name of ?Tahoe? and shall no longer be known as Lake Bigler. This is right. “Tahoe” is a very pretty Indian name, signifying “Clear Water,” while “Bigler” is the (illeg) of a California politician.

The Times adds an expression which compliments the ex-Governor’s ambition at the expense of his intellectual qualities.

Accident in San Joaquin - A man named Patrick DONEGAN was thrown from a buggy, lately, near Stockton, and it is supposed received fatal injuries.

An Educated Pah Utah - When J.T. LOCKHART, Indian Agent for this Territory, returned from the East, a short time since, he brought with him a Pah Utah boy about seventeen years of age, named Richard WASHINGTON, who has been attending college at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for the past three years. He is said to have made very rapid progress during his stay at school, and he now has a very good education  and is a perfect gentleman in his manners. He was taken to this school in 1859, by Indian Agent DODGE. This case affords a very gratifying and encouraging evidence of the progress that could be made in civilizing and educating our barbarous and ignorant neighbors, if the proper exertions were made. Richard will be employed for the present as an interpreter, but when the necessary arrangements are made he will be engaged as a teacher also, on one of the Reservations. - Virginia Union.

We recollect seeing this boy in Sacramento, some three years ago, in company with Indian Agent DODGE, and noticed much manliness in his deportment.

Caldonia Copper Mine - This mine in Calaveras county is situated in the Washewkeen district, near Salt Spring valley. A shaft has been sunk on the lode to the depth of ninety-five feet, where the vein is found to be twenty-eight feet in width.

El Dorado - The delegates from this county to the Union State Convention are

O. HARVEY, W.H. COOPER, J.J. GREEN, A.V.V. POST, Robert BELL, George McDONALD, A.H. SAXTON, J.M. ARNOLD, A.W. PARKER, I.E. TERRY, J.J. McHATTON, Robert C. STEERE, Thomas McMANUS and A.M. TAYLOR.

 

Lost An Eye - In a difficulty about fences, at Pajaro, Monterey county, June 12th, one Richard CAMDEN was shot in the eye by John HERNANDEZ. CAMDEN lost his sight.

Personal - John BELL and S. MASSET, of California, were registered at New York hotels on the 22d of May. J.J. FELT, Mrs. MEED and Miss KIMBALL, of California, were registered at New York hotels on the 23d of May.

Who Told You? - The lower country papers have given general circulation to the statement that Trinity county sends three Stanford and one Low delegate to the State Convention. We are puzzled to know how they gained the information. If Sargent is a candidate for the Governor a majority of the Trinity delegation will favor his nomination. Between Low and Stanford, the former will get a majority vote. Trinity Journal.

Sad Accident - A teamster named MOORE was thrown out of a wagon near Laporte, Sierra county, June 13th, and fatally injured.

Murder - Death from Wounds - Insanity - Arrival

SAN FRANCISCO, June 15th.

An Italian courtesan, known as Julia, was found murdered this morning in her own house, No. 9 Pike street. The weapon employed was a chisel. The ceiling and wall of the rooms and bed clothing are splashed with blood of the deceased. The body was almost naked. The skull was beaten in, and the carotid artery severed in three pieces. There are nineteen stab wounds from the chisel in the neck and head and two in the hands. The struggle must have been terrific, as evidenced by the broken furniture and torn bed clothing.  Deceased was possessed of some real estate property, a considerable sum of money and $1,000 worth of diamonds. The murder could not have been for the purpose of robbery, as the valuables were found undisturbed. The information was given  by a young man named PINKHAM who slept in a room in the basement, occupied by his father. A carpenter also has a shop in the basement. The father was absent and had requested the young man to sleep there. He states that he was awakened this morning by a noise overhead; heard a man come down stairs in the shop; while he was dressing the man went up stairs again and soon went away. PINKHAM followed into the street, but did not see the man, having mistaken the direction taken by the latter. PINKHAM is under arrest and the detective police are making investigations. The woman was aged about forty years. Letters in her possession are addressed to Madame Maria Louise FRESHI.

Henry PRINCE, who was waylaid and beaten by a man named James WILSON on the night of the last municipal election in this city, died last night in the Hospital. WILSON has been arrested on a charge of manslaughter.  John DORSEY is under arrest for insanity.

Arrived - Ship Mary L. Sutton, 119 days from New York.

Treasure Receipts - Arrival of a British Propeller - Treasury Nominations - Land Case - Military - Arrest for Burglary and Larceny - Arrival

            SAN FRANCISCO, June 22d

  The receipts of treasure from the interior since last steamer at $1,800,000. Deposits in the Mint for coinage during ten days past reach $900,000. The supply of bullion is short. Sales reported at $40 for gold; siler is 1/2 premium to 2 1/4 discount. Legal tenders are $5-66. Mining stocks have revived perceptibly.

  The British iron propeller Fusi Yarma arrived to-day, 134 days from England, via Caliso 25 days.  After a trip to Victoria she will take her place in the steamship line to China. This steamer came through the Straits, and cannot have been the supposed piratical steamer seen off cape Horn by the ship George Green.

  Mr. CHEESMAN says that according to the regulations of the United States Treasury Department, all warrants or drafts must be presented within six months of the date of issuing, else they will be returned to the Treasury for re-issue.

  Judge HOFFMAN rejects the claims of Justo LAROS to Rancho Campo de Los Franches, in San Joaquin county.

  In the case of Caroline ORTELLO against Giovanne B. ORTELLO, divorce  was refused. Robert W. MACKEY was divorced from Lucy MACKEY.

  Supervisors to-night passed the bill appropriating $39,000 out of funds in the city treasury to improve the condition of the military of this district.

 A young man named Harry RASCHE, who keeps a piano and music store on Montgomery street, is under arrest on six charges of burglary and one of

grand larceny. He is reputed to be possessed of property valued at $30,000, left to him by his father, who deceased recently.

  Arrived - Bark Thomas Fletcher, 203 days from New York, to Forbes.

 

A BRAVE WOMAN - Under this title we published, June 3d, a paragraph from the San Francisco Alta, stating that one Mrs. GARISH, about the 15th of May,

acted the part of a heroine near Canon station, on the Overland route, when the stage was attacked by Indians and the driver killed:

  Instantaneously with the shooting of the driver, Mrs. GARISH leaped out of the stage, leaving her child within. At the same moment four or five shots more were fired by the Indians, one of which struck a horse in the head and he fell. She instantly cut him loose, mounted the box, and seizing the reins, applied the whip vigorously. The driver, on being shot, fell back into the boot behind the seat. The three horses were put to the top of their speed, and continued running for about two miles, when luckily they encountered another stage from the opposite direction. In this were a number of soldiers, who instantly came to the aid of the heroine, when she with her child were released from their perilous position.

  We have received a communication from John C. ALLEN, of Company C, Third Infantry, dated at Eight Miles station, on the Overland route, who says

there is not one word of truth to the above statement of the Alta. Our correspondent says:

  At the time that the coach was attacked there were four soldiers in the coach and one Major EGAN, of Mormondom, who was sitting on the box with the

driver. The stage was going east at the time. There were no females in or near the coach at the time, unless they were dressed in men?s clothes. When the driver was shot, EAGAN took the lines and whipped the horses into a run and would not give the soldiers a chance to have a show at the Indians until he had gone far enough to give the Indians a chance to get out of the way.

The lady who is alluded to came through twenty-four hours after that, and there was nothing occurred worthy of note on that day. There was no time,

however, but what there were at least two soldiers to keep her company for at least one hundred miles east, to as far west as where the accident happened.

  J.C. ALLEN has been on the Overland route in the locality referred to over since the 24th of March, and is therefore duly advised in the matter of which he writes.

 

TROUBLE WITH HORSE THIEVES - We learn from S.P. STORMS that in Tehama county, on Tuesday, June 16th, some Spaniards stole sixteen head of horses belonging to N. MERRILL and the LACOCK Brothers. The owners, with Hiram HENLEY, raised a company of men and started over the Coast Range – missed the thieves, but on their return met the Spaniards, about three miles from Ell river, with the horses. John LACOCK being acquainted with one of the

Spaniards, rode up to him and commenced a conversation. The other Spaniards attempted to go on but were ordered to stop; and, as they paid no attention

to the order, they were fired upon. Hearing the firing, the one talking with LACOCK drew his revolver and shot him dead. The horses were recovered, but

the thieves escaped. The horse and saddle of the Spaniard who shot LACOCK was found next morning, and it is supposed the rider was killed in the

melee.

 

ATTACKED BY INDIANS - The Visalia Delta of June 18th says:

  While five teamsters, with freight from Los Angeles, were passing through the Kelsey canon on Thursday last, there were attacked by a band of Indians,

about forty in number, who were lying in ambush. They fired from their hiding places with rifles, killed on named Martin HART, who was hit fairly in the head, whole Oliver BURKE was shot in the arm. BURKE fired twice at the Indians, killing one. DAWSON then took him in his arms and was carrying him off, when he was again shot in the side and requested DAWSON to lay him down, as he was dying when he again fired at the Indians, and died while

preparing for the fourth fire - grit to the last. DAWSON, HERTZ and TWITTY escaped. The Indians, after overhauling everything, dressing themselves

finely in store clothes and securing two cases of pistols, left. They were (rest of article is cut off).

 

SAN FRANCISCO - A dispatch to the Bee yesterday says:

  James PAGE, son of the proprietor of a chop house on Montgomery street, fell from a building last night. His recovery is doubtful.

  Respectable citizens feel so much outrage at recent primary elections here that the People?s Committee will nominate a Legislative ticket.

 

HORRIBLE DEATH - On Friday, June 12th, a man named William McINTYRE, aged twenty-eight years, was burned to death at Old Diggings, in Shasta county, while in a state of intoxication.

 

SHOOTING - On Thursday, June 11th, one GILBERT, living on Kern river, near the Ferry, killed his neighbor, SAMUELS, by shooting him in the forehead with a shot gun. SAMUELS was intoxicated at the time.

COLORED COTTON - NEW VARIETIES - The United States Consul at Panama has lately addressed to the State Department a communication giving some facts which are believed to be new. The letter is as follows:

  My Dear Sir: I send you some cotton grown in this city from the seed received from you. I also send you two specimens of cottom from Sierra Pino.

The white cotton was taken from a tree seven inches in diameter, the top branches of which are about fifteen feet from the ground and spread about

twenty feet each way. The colored cotton was taken from a similar tree.  Cotton in that part of Pino is of five or six different colors. The trees

are so full of cotton bolls that you can scarcely see the leaf. They seldom have had rain here for the last sixteen years. Pino is situated forty miles

east of Paits. Soil sandy, but very productive. Where there is water the soil is best. The trees from which this cotton was taken were planted, but

never cultivated. Some English have gone to work thirty miles from Patia, in a southeast direction, near the coast, and we may reasonably expect to hear of complete success in the culture of this important staple.

  I am, very truly, your friend.

SAN FRANCISCO - A dispatch to the Bee yesterday has the following:

  Collector LOW has succeeded in getting salaries at the Custom House raised twenty-five per cent.

  A cook at San Lorenzo ranch, Monterey county, attempted to poison all the ranch hands with strychnine. Remedies were applied and all got well.

  A grand ratification meeting was held here last night. The following were the speakers: PHELPS, FAY, PERKINS, SEARS, LOW, SHANNON, HIGBY, COLE, and all the State nominees. Great enthusiasm.

 

SUICIDE - James T. GARDINER, Deputy Sheriff of Monterey, shot himself through the head on Tuesday, June 23d. No hope is entertained of his

recovery, as the ball lodged somewhere in the brain. Cause- insanity.

BY TELEGRAPH TO THE UNION

Fatal Accident - Rumor in San Francisco - Survey Approved - Money Matters - Sale of Ship - Fatal Accident in Alameda - Charge of Assault - Family Murder and Suicide

    SAN FRANCISCO, July 2d - 10 P.M.

 A young man, named Henry HELM, in attempting to jump from an omnibus car on Howard street to-night, was caught under the wheels and fatally injured.

  Rumors have been current all day, and credited, that Major General B.F. BUTLER has been appointed to the command of the Pacific Department to

supersede General Wright, and that WRIGHT is to take the field. In this connection I learn that a party in this city telegraphed to his agent in New

York to ascertain whether certain goods had been shipped on the steamer which leaves New York for Aspinwall to-morrow. The reply was that Wells,

Fargo & Co. and BUTLER had entirely monopolized the capacity of the steamer.  This is presumed to mean that the Express Company and BUTLER had filled the steamer with freight. [The dispatch probably should have read butter - Eds. UNION] This dispatch is probably the foundation of the rumor about BUTLER's appointment.

  Judge HOFFMAN to-day approved the survey of the claim of heirs of Armijo.  Receipts of treasure since last steamer amount to $2,200,000. Gold bars are quoted at 820 and 830. Money market easy. Legal tenders are 65 and 66.  Private New York and Boston dispatches order purchases of wool for shipment.

  Clipper ship Challenger was sold to-day to N. Lcaro & Co. Price withheld.

  Rio coffee has advanced to 28 1/2 cents.

  W.H. THOMPSON, brother-in-law of A.B. FORBES, of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, was gored to death by a bull on his ranch in Alameda

county yesterday.
