county, we presume no one will very se

tjiveil our individual opinion as to ignor-
irr a popular expression because of mere
- '-formality; we do not believe ia it. In
; '.tiling tuch a question, 'here should be
but one point, or count, viz: was there
fraud, cr an attempt to commit fraud ?
. Further than this, we wouli not care if
the Totes were simply deposited in a tat,
and counted out as in a town meeting. A
' fair, honest expression cf the people,
should never be thwarted because of mere
informality. We mean to censure no one,
because we believe the Board did what
' they honestly thought was their duty in
. the matter.

Untied tears shed by that portion cf the
Democratic party -would-be leaders, who
hesitate not to depart from the ancient
land marks; who sacrifice principle for

laying waste the kingdom. Experience

but certain classes learn in no other, and

The result in this Territory is just as
we predicted, when aware that those in
high places had determined to repudiate
the doctrine of popular sovereignty; nor
do we claim sagacity in making the pre
diction. We contended then,- and yet
conte:. uat nought' but 'overwhelming
defeat was ia waiting, and will ever follow
gross deception and violation cf principle.
We hold that honesty in politics is equal
ly essential as in religion, morals, or any
thing else, and the party that expects to
succeed in this enlightened country, age
and day, must do -it on principles and
their merits. The day's of gullibility and
blind devotion to men "clothed with a
little brief authority" are "numbered
' amon the things that were," and we

:It was. known for months in advance
that Senator Seward would, on a certain
day, deliver a speech covering in- detail
"the question cf the day." He accordingly-made
his speech, on the 29th uk., in
presenting the memorial cf the Legisla
ture of Kansas, praying for admission
into the Union. We have read, it very
carefully. To say that it is not only sa
gacious and sensible, but an able state
paper, would be "fabricating" for politi
cal purposes merely. Mr. S. is a states
man and a scholar of no ordinary ability
by any means. He knows exactly how
to shape his course; his speeches are read
by the American people cf all parties.
The one now before the country is one of
the most conservatire he has ever made.
In fact, it is so much so that it scarcely

can? ; - . .
Ma. Editor: In your paper cf last
week, in an article headed Still they
Agree," you say : "The ultra Republi
cans of the NortJutui. the. fire-eaters of
the SoutH, still occupy the same bed as to
the power over, and duty in regard to
ilzvQ ry ia ihe Territories ; on the - part- of
Congress. In a number ofspeeches by
leading Republicans of ( late.jwe see they
are still for interference."
In"anotlier article on - the - same- paer,
you quote from a letter of Washington
addressed to Lafayette: "Tte Congress
cf 17S7 adopted an ordinance prohibiting
the existence of involuntary servitude in
our Northwestern Territory forever'."
"And I trust we slall have a confederacy
of free States." :
If Washington thought it was a "wise
measure" for Congress to prohibit slavery
in the Territories, surely he must have
been an "ultra Republican' according to
your definiiicn of the term. There are
a few of ug Americans left -who think
that Washington was as wise as Douglas
or any other statesman of the present
day, and' that we are not straying far
from the path of duty, when we follow in
his footsteps. , A Republican.
Washington was not an ultra Republi
can. We, however, live in a different
day and age, and are surrounded by cir
cumstances quite different from those in
which the "father of his country" moved
and acted. . There are more and altoge
ther different interests to conciliate. The
slavery question of this day is not the sla
very question of 1787. properly speaking.
We fully agree with, the opinions of
Washington as quoted last week : "I have
long considered it slavery a most seri
ous evil, both socially and politically, and
would rejoice in any feasible scheme to
rid our Stales of such a burden. I trust
we shall have a confederacy, of free
States." The ordinance of 1787, altho
in that day considered by Washington
and others a wise measure ;" was not
deemed a "feasible scheme to rid, our
Stales of such a burden." There is no
wisdom in 1S60, or feasibility any time,
in any power legislating upon the subject
of "slai-ery, save tha having immediate
control over it, viz: State or Territorial
Legislature. Whenever nil parties agree
that the people directly not only direct
ly but solely interested, shall settle this
"vexed question," then, and not until
then, is there a "feasible scheme" to
bring about the wish of Washington that
"we shall have a confederacy of free
States." There is no danger whatever
of the spread of slavery if left to the
people. Else why do the fire-eaten of
the South cry cut so loud for Congression
al interference in the enactment cf a
slave protecting code. They say "expe
rience has taught us we dare not rely up
on this plan, for the simple reason that
new Territories are filled up principally
from the great Northern hive !" There
is the whole secret in a nut shell. We
adhere to our declaration that "ultra Re
publicans cf the North and the fire-eaters
of the South occupy the same bed" so
long as they both contend for Congressi
onal interference upon the subject of sla
very. Do they not agree exactly as to
the principle involved? only differing in
its application ? .

"A rich thinrr has lately transpired, in
which your folks out there are somewhat
interested. The President is a man of
business, .'and attends to more than the
duties cf his office. A short tine since,
he wrote in one day, a long editorial for
an. Anti-Douglas paper in Egypt, Illinois
and a veto message for Gov. Medary, of
Kansas, on- the Shvery bill. He hurriedly
enveloped his two documents, and direct
ed, them ; .but the issue shows that he
committed. a ludicrous blunder. The other
day, the same mail brought the Egyptian
newspaper and the message; when, aud
to relate, it was found that the paper con
tained the Kansas veto message as a
leader, and Medary ha sent out a leader
for a country newspaper as a message,
with the addition of a few lines at the
beginning and ending, to make it -"read
right !" The President blames Douglas
with' the trick, but the general belief is,
that he made the mistake himself, by
placing the documents in the wrong enve
lopes. I ' -

' The whole Country has been watching

that State would form an exception to the
popular sovereignty expression which has
so fai obtained in all the free. States, and
to see also if thj Lecornpton proscription
and policy of Buchanan would be endors
ed by his own State. 'There has been by
this Admiuistraiiori, as appeari by the

For two weeks past there has been an
immense rush to the Norwood mining
district, some twelve miles northwest
from Mountain City. There are three
gulches of almost fabulous richness, ex
celling anything before found in the
Mountain City. Feb. 20, 1SG0.
Editor News: Considerable excite
ment has prevailed for the past week
about some "new" mines which lie some
twelve mines in a northwest direction.
They are not, however, a recent discove
ry. They were discovered last fall by
several different parties.
Each party supposed they were the on
ly ones that knew anything about them,
and took good care to cover up their pros
pect holes, so that ever)'thing would re
main secure until spring. Bat somehow
it leaked out. and men have searched
around amid the deep snows that cover
that country until they have found the
place. The reports and excitement are
much greater than circumstances will jus
tify. .; ;:-.- ' ;
The richness of the country is not yet
ascertained; I have seen between five and
ten cent3 washed from the first pan of
dirt that Was taken from beneath the
grass roots. I have been informed by
gentlemen, whom 1 think reliable, that
they have washed fifty cents to the pan
repeatedly, at a depth of four feet from
the surface, but no such results have been
obtained by the recent prospecting ; tho'
it is impossible to give the country any
kind of a test. The snow lies in the gul
ches to the depth of from two to six feet,
and every attempt to find where the gold
lies is like a star in the dark.
Hundreds have rushed to the new
mines with high hopes, and hundreds
have returned with lowered heads, cryin?
Vsold" and "humbug." This. I suppose,
will always be the case, every time that
a new discovery is made. Men build too
high hopes and become discouraged too
easily. I have been there twice and am
sure that it is a good mining country,
fully as cood as this, if not better ; and
the culches a3 cood as Russell's; but
whether they will excel it or not remains
to be proven.
The leads are very numerous, and the
blossom rock looks and prospects well.
Not a piece has yet been pulverized and
tested that did not yield gold. The out
crop blossom is much more burnt than it
is here, and where the leads have been
opened the rock is more decomposed. The
prospecting of leads is very limited, and
very little is known about them, only that
they are easily found and readily traced.
It is perfectly useless for. people living
at a distance to rush in here for the pur
pose of testing those mines ; and if they
do. unless they are practical miners and
understand what they are about, it will be
ten chances to one if they do not call them
a humbusr. It must be remembered that
it is winter, and those mines lie at the
base of mountains on whose tops the snow
lies oil summer, therefore it is much col
der there than in the valleys or even
here. Very little can be done until spring
and until that time everyone had better
be patient and wait. C. W.

feet; the quartz now pays from SG00 to

increasing in richness.
The Consolrdated Ditch, bringing wa
ter to Russell's Gulch, Quartz Hill, and
all the neighboring mines, we learn is
nearly completed. The water has al
ready been turned in, and the ditch filled
for about two mile3 from its head. Bat
little now remains to be done, except to
complete the fluming in several places.
