The President fays he does not consid
er it nocesjary at present for him to
cuss those matters of administration about
which there is no special imiety or inter
est." There is rs reasonable cause for
the Southern States to apprehend that
their property, peace and security are to
te endangered by the accession of the
.Republican Administration. " Congress
and the President are bound by their cath
of oGice to faithfully execute the Fugitive
Slave Law. He takes the cfEcial oath
with no mental reservation and no purpose
to conslrue the Coustitution and laws by
cny hypocritical rules, and suggests that
it will be much safer for all, both in offi
cial and private stations, to conform and
abide by all those acts which stand unre
pealed, than to violate any of them. He
holds that the Union was made to be per
petual. But if viewed in the light of
. an association of State?,' in the nature of
a contract merely, can it, as a contract,
be peaceably unmade unless by all the
parties who made it ? No State, upon its
own mere motion, can get cut'of the Un
.ion; resolves and ordinances to that effect
are legally void, and acts of violence with
in any State against the authority cf the
U. S. are insurrectionary or revolutionary.
He therefore considers, that the Union is
unbroken, and shall take, care that the
laws of the Union be faithfully executed
in all the States. In doing this, there
need be no bloodshed or violence, and
there shall be none unless it be forced,
tip-m ihe national authority. The power
confided to him will be used to hold and
occupy the property, of the government,
and collect duties oa imports but beyond
what will be necessary for these objects,
there will be no .using of force against or
among people anywhere. While the. le
gal right exists in the government to en
force its officers there will be no attempt
"made to force Federal officers among the
people who object. The mails, unless re
pealed, will continue to be furnished in
all points of the Union. The course of
the Administration, will be with a view
of a peaceful solution cf the national trou
bles and the restoration of the fraternal
sympathies and affection. The President
after disserting" on the rights and duties
of majorities and minorities, says that he
understands that a proposed amendment
to the Constitution has passed Congress,
to the efff ct that the Federal government
ahall never interfere with the domestic
institutions of the States. Although he
holds that such a provision is now implied
in the Constitution, he has no objection to
its being made express and irrevocable.
He concludes by an appeal to the people
and the lovers of the Union.
The message is regarded by Union
men of all partiss as peaceful in its char
acter and correct in its positions.
V Andrew Johnson endorses it without
qualification. Of course the secessionists
call the message a war document and are
already endeavoring to still further excite
the people. That old arch traitor John
Tyler, is out ia favor of Virginia seceding
forthwith. .- " ;

We need, and must have a man at the
head of affairs who can call the attention
of prudent enterprise and capital to the
wants and movements cf Nebraska. From
some knowledge of men and their motives,
W3 have no hesitancy in declaring,
that the appointment of Dr. Evans would
be in the first instance very acceptable to
the masses cf the people; afterwards ar
dently esteemed and fir'iiy an object of
gratitude to the President for the wisdom
of the act.
. It is quite diverting to witness the
course cf leading Democratic papers in
the country, since the plans to assassinate
the President elect have been discovered,
BLd the designing perpetrators out-managed.
They are cow disposed to laugh
it off as a "good joke;" that they frigid
tried the President , and hi3 friends; or
charge that the Republicans themselves
raised the reports for effect. They say
if plans were on foot to assassinate Mr.
Lincoln it devolves upon his friends to
"pvllish the names of every conspirator."
Of course, that would be a very easy job!
Men who plot assassinations are always
known to the public! They take pains
that their names are known to all ! They
go around and "tell folks". They stand
on the corners cf streets proclaiming to
the world that they are the men! No
trouble to get their names! oh, no !
Won' somebody "publish the name of
That dodge won't .vork, gentlemen.
You know that such plots' were on foot;
and .but for their timely discovery the
President would have been assassinated
on his way to, or at the National Capitol.
Democrats hereabouts- took the same
position in regard to Dennison. "He
would cot run off!" "He could have gone
long ago if he wished!" "Need not watch
him!". Such was the talk until now he
is gone, they doubtless consider
evinced great shrewdness.

Golden Crrr, Feb. lSlh, '61.
Dear Fuhnas: There is but little to
write that will interest your readers, but
nevertheless I will try and eke out a short
communication, iu which, peradventure,
something of interest may appear.
The most interesting study, and one on
which many curious speculations could be
based, is the present occupation and mode
cf. life cf many of the Pike's Peakers,
as contrasted with their antecedents in the
States. That tab', slim, peaked-nost-d
yankee you sec? over the way, with his
eye peeled, and neck sketched out like a
hen after grass-hoppers, who is cutting
wood for a dollar a day, and mining xCr
a like sum when he can, was once Horace
Greeley's overseer on his farm, some
miles from New York city, and handling
of money. That good-na
tured, pleasant looking, hut rather shabby
individual, just going into the saloon, was,
a few years ago, part owner and clerk on
one of our lake steamers, and, as they
say out here, "j:st worth a bushel cf
money." That little, merry-faced speci
men of the genvs koraci, has traveled over
California and New Mexico, roamed all
over the South American States, atid spent
one, if cot two fortunes, and is now keep
irg bar with wages hardly sufficient for
the necessaries cf life. Your correspon
dent is earning his board by cooking for
a couple cf. young shoemakers, both cf
whom luve occupied stations high in the
social scale in the East, and one of them,
a young Englishman whose father-is a
man of considerable wealth in Great
BrittjjQ a year ago was the proprietor
of a largo boot and t-hoe, and also alarg
hardware stora in Lawrence, Kansas.
And so on ad ihjlhUur.K Whil?, on the '
sided in Rockport, and used frequently to
visit Brownville, and who, even when cn
a spree, was very qiiitt and gentlemanly
in his deportment. It is with sorrow that
I chronicle his violent and bloody death.
Since coming to this country he had es
tablished for himself a character as a
reckless and desperate man, and when
under the influence of liquor was consid
ered dangerous. A few weeks ago, while
cn a drunken fr'c at Central City, he
cam? b a public house, near the door of
which, a teamster by the name of Loon
ey had blocked a couple of wagons, loaded
with hay, which he was taking up into
the mountains. Some devil prompted
Riley to knock the blocks from under the
wheels, which he did, and the freed wag
oa rushed with tremendous velocity down
the side of the mountain, breaking it to
pieces and scattering the hay far and
wide. Looney hearing the noise, ran out
of the house just as Riley was performing
a similar service for the remaining one.
Riley was armed with 22 elht-iach Colt's
revolver and a double-barreled shot gun.
Looney took the gun from him, and Riley
drew his pistol, firing at him twic, when
the teamster shot him with his own gun,
lodging three buckshot in the region of
the heart. Riley fell instantly, but turn
ed upon his face and clutching the pistol
with both hands, fired again. That was
the last act of his life, as he instantly ex
pired, and when picked up a few minutes
later, his hand still gripped the pistol with
the grip of death.
Mining news are very scarce just at
present, from the fact that little has been
done at it at present. But few mills are
running, and they are scarcely able to
pay expenses. There are some few gulch
claims worked in the diferent districts
where it is possible, but only in such ca
ses where it is a question of bread and
butler, I was going to say, but bacon will
be more to the mark. None are working
in the mines that can possibly avoid it.
The fabulous reports which were current
with regard to the San Juan mines have
turned out a humbug, and many who were
ne Has ! ! , ,
preparing io visu mem in ine spring nave
been sadly disappointed.
A hard living can be made here by
mining almost anywhere in the mountains
by extreme toil, and but comparatively
few make more than' that. Some few
diggings have paid well, and nuggets of
considerable value have been taken out;
but as,a general thing the gold is extreme-
ly nne una 'very n.-ird loraver-i-ny :orreH
making two dollars a day in" thj States,
is a fool to come out here. The future
may and undoubtedly will develope the
resources of this country, and when its
standard is fixed will be time enough to
try the chances of this far western land.
I cannot say much in favor of the agri
cultural prospects of this country, though
what arable land there is produces equal
to any I hae ever seen; but it is not re
markable in quantity. Take it altogeth
er, I have not much faith that any great
future is in store for us.
About a mile from Golden City, and
iust at the mouth of the canon, whence
Clear Creek comes foaming down from
ihe mountains, are the ruins of an ancient
work, whether of a religious character, or
a forti.ication against the invasion of oth
er tribes, I am not well enough versed in
the lore of antiquity to determine. It
consists of two circles of large stones one
within the other. The outer cirele is 150
feet ia diameter, and the inner some 55
feet. In the centre of the smaller one is
a small mound, which some curiuus indi
vidual has prospected, but I judge, with
out any material result. The walls are
now level with the ground, and how high
it originally was, how long it has been
built, who built it, and for what object, I
leave to the speculations of others better
able to determine such questions than my
But the greatest curiosity yet found in
this country, was the skeleton of a human
LoinjT.di-ovort., nrx,n South Clear Creek
by a couple of miners while working their
claims at a depth of 27 feet. It was ly
ing upon its . face on the bed rock, and
close by were found the roots of a red
piiiO tree, deeply imbedded in the rock,
and in a wonderful state of preservation.
Unon exposure to the air, however, it
soon crumbled into duct. The miners not
being of a speculative turn of mind too'.i
no pains to preserve the skeleton, and the
skull was thereby lost, so that it was im
possible to determine' to what race it be
longed. . But as a gentleman of geologic
al attainments remarks, it almost forces
one to the conclusion that the Rocky
Mountains are comparatively of modern
date; that is, since the world has been in
habited by man.
Quite an excitement was ereatcd on
Thursday evening, the 7th instant by the
report of a duel to be fought next morn
ing between Brig. Gen. Bowen, and a Dr.
Bembrick, Dr. Rankin acting asBowen's
second.,. The quarrel grew out of Dr. B.
calling the General Colonel, instead of
giving him his proper military title. The
Doctor, as the challenged party, chose ri
fles distance, 75 yards fire at the word
the first shot, and load and fire as fast as
possible until one or the other fell. The
one o'clock in the morning Bowen went to
a beer saloon, and woke the proprietor to
pay him SI, 30 he owed for beer, saying
he did not know lut he might be killed
in the morning, and did not want it to lay
heavy upon his conscience. The "affair"
however, did not cone off, and the Gen
eral "still lives."
The weather, which probably should
have been first on the list of items, has
been more Lke spring thaa winter; th-re
being but little snow, and but very few
days when the thermometer was as low as
20 deg. below freezing point. Last Thurs
day evening we had a small snow storm
somewhat after the style of suowing,
blowing and freezing, we have in Ne
braska; but the sun rose warm and bright
next morning, and by coon all the snow
was gone, except where it had drifted in
to the gulches and ravines.
The Indians are not troublesome, tho'
we have semi-occasional rumors of threat
ened attacks by them, . which have thus
far proved to be -ihcut foundation. The
citizens have organized quite a large mil
itary company, under the command of
Capt. Gio. West, the fighting editor of
the JVestern .Mountaineer The Captain
says that ia dealing with the benighted
sons of the prairie,-it is his opinion that
the "sword is mightier thaa the pen."
Wre are not altogether heathens out
here, notwithstanding (as says our an
cient friend Belden,) "we are truly in a
western country." We have a dancing
school, a debating . and literary society,
and last, but by co means least, a good
Masonic Lodge, consisting of some twen
ty-five or thirty members, while constant
accessions are being made to the ranks cf
the Mysterious Brotherhood.
. I will endeavor, hereafter to keep you
regularly posted in matters and things
out here, and when mining commences in
the spring, will try and give you the most
reliable news from the different districts.
As South Carolina is much talked of at
the present day, perhaps it would be well
to look back and see what she has been.
She has an area of about. 30.000 square
miles, and in 1830 had a population of
264,681 persons. In 1660 she had 309,
1S6, increase in 0 years, 43.402. She
had also in 1830,315,401 two-legged cat
tle. She now has 407,165, or an increase
of 91,764. Counting her people, and pe
culiar cattle, she now has 715,371, which
Js-less iharrj21 to tho square mite. -
She is nowdoing her best to destroy
this nation, under' the pretence that she
does not get her rights, but the fact is
her people never were loyal to this gov
ernment. Every history of the United
States tells us that South Carolina was
sadly infested with Tories in the war of
When DeKalb asked Marion why the
South Carolinians did not join the army
who had come to fight for them, "Why,
sir," answered Marion, "the people of
Carolina form but two classes, the rich
and poor. , The poor are generally very
poor, because, not being necessary to the
rich, who have slaves to do all their work,
they get no employment from them.
Being thus unsupported by the rich,
they continue poor and low spirited. They
seldom get money; and indeed what little
they do get,- is laid out in brandy to raiae
their spirits, and not on books and news
papers to get information. The rich are
generally very rich, and consequently are
afraid to stir, lest the British should burn
their houses and furniture, and carry eff
their negroes and stock."
"After Gates was defeated, Marion, in
a speech to bis men (thirty in numhr-r),
said; "Two gallant armies have been
marched to our assistance; but for lack of
competent commanders both have been
lost. Thus are all our hopes from the
North entirely at an end; and poor Caro
lina is left' to shift for herself. A sad
shift indeed, when not one in a hundred
of her own children will rise to take her
part; but, on the contrary are madly tak
ing part with the enemy, agalasi her."
"A short time before Marion's death in
a conversation with Horry, he said: "What
was it brought the British to Carolina
again? after that drubbing they got from
us at Ft. Moultrie, they would as soon
have attacked the Devil as us, had they
not heard that we were "a house divided
against itself," or in other words, had
amongst us a great number of Tories,"
, "Now it is generally believed. tbeBrit
ish, after the loss of Burgoyne, and ihttr
fine Northern army, would toon have giv
en ud the contest, had it not been for the
drtd milts, and when at Guilford, Greene
was joined by two thousand militia men.
What did he gain by thembutdisappoint
ment and disgrace? For, though posted
behind the cornfield fences, they could
not stand a single fire from the British
but broke and fled like base bora slaves,
leaving their ba hJ musket's sticking in
the fence corners!"
Bat from this shameful sight, turn
again to Bunker's Hill. There, behind
apor ditch, you behold fifteen hundred
militia men waiting the approach of three
thousand British regulars. Will they,
like their Southern friend.-', jump up and
run? Oh no! they grasp their firelocks,
and drawing their sights along the tubes,
they long for the approach of the British
thousands. Three times the British thous
ands came up; and three times the daunt
less 'yeomen received 'them in storms of
thunder and lightning that shivered their
ranks, and heaped the field with their
Such was the language of Francis Mar
ion a native Carolinian, and on-3 of '.he
heroes who gained onr freedom from the
British. Were he alive z, Carolina now,
and speak the buguage which I have
quoted d'uove, his brother Car clinian3, in
spite of hi3 distinguished services, would
be very aptto hang him up to the first
tree, as an incendiary abolitionist.
In'a speech in the Senate .Tom Corwin
said, "It is a truth, that when the Con
stitution of the United Stales was made,
South .Carolina and Georgia refused to
come into the Union unless theshve trade
should be continued for twenty yeBrs. So
the history reads:-
"I do not blame South Carolina and
Georgia for this transaction, any more
than I do those Northern States who shar
ed in it.
: "Thf-y had the power to prohibit it; but
at the command. of these two States, they
allowed that to be introduced into the
constitution, to which much of slavery new
existing in our land is clearly to be traced.
For who can doubt but for that woeful
bargain, slavery would by this time have
disappeared from all the Slates then in
the Union, with one or two exceptions.
. "And just as you extend tho area of
slavery so you multiply the difficulties
which lie in the way of its extermination.
"It had been irfimtely better that day
that South Carolina and Georgia had re
mained out of the Union for awhile, rath
er than that' the Constitution should have
been made to sanction the slave trade for
To .which your correspondent adds,
"That's my mind, exactly, for the Caro
linians and Georgians have now seceded
from the Union, and one principal reason
is, that they, may reopen the slave trade."
Thirty years ago South Carolina tried
to dissolve, the Union using as a pretext,
that she was oppressed by the tariff. Yet
the first thing almost that the kingdom cf
Cottondom did after achieving their Inde
pendence (on paper,) was to pass a tariff
bill." ' ' " ----."
Again in 1814, when ihe saw that the
NoriLm-jicoDle. were orrosed'to the an
nexation of Texas, she usedlhatas apre-
text for secession; and one of the stand
ing toasts of her chivalrous sons at public
dinners was, "Texas and the Union," or
"Texas without the Union." .
Again in 1S50, Carolina and others
wanted to "fly off the handle," because
California asked to be" admitted into the
Union with a Constitution prohibiting sla
very, and ever since she has been threat
ening to leave and is now "clean gene"
because the abolitionists steal "niggers"
from the border slave States.
I am afraid that Carolina, is - infested
with the descendents of some cf the tories
cf the revolution. t
Underwood, of Virginia says, (and I
believe it is true,) "Men will always work
better for the cash, than for the lash
The free laborer will produce as much
and waste a little as he can. The slave
on the contrary, will produce as little and
consume as much as possible."
'We have an instructive example or.'
the one class, in the activity, enterprise,
prosperity and intelligence of New Eng
land, and of the other, in the pitiable
condition of poor South CaroIinJ, a State
which, by neglecting the Un(!.;.; ot her
Marion, ZZ' mellowing her Butilers, her
Brooks', her Keitts, and her Quattlebums,
in the race of aristocracy and Africaniza
tion, is rapidly sinking into agricultural
sterility, bloated egotism and brutal barbarism."-
Thus we see. that South Caro
lina was disloyal at the time that "tried
men's sojIs" came grudgingly into the
Union when it was formed, and has been
trying for at leust 30 years to dissolve it,
has committed acts of hostility to our gov
ernment, that we would not tolerate ia
the jr.osi powerful iiaiiou on earth; and
we are told that we must net use force to
make her behave. The great border
slave Slates say to her, "Carrie, you have
done wrong, but they sha'nt punish you
for it." They then "turn round to the Gov
ernment and say, "You sha'nt march
troops across cur soil to punish Cotton
dom; if you undertake it we will welcome
you with bloody hands to hospitable
