J?V THE STEAMER. CHEROKEE.
The steamer Cherokee (arrived at New
York) left Chagres on the 2(Uh March,
bringing 81 passengers and $1,158,818 00
on freight, and at least $500,000 in hands
of passengers, making a total of $1,658,-
The Sacramento flood has entirely sub
sided, and no further danger is appre
hended. Town lots are daily rising in
All the other towns of the Sacramento
and tributaries are thriving, particularly the
new towns of I baviile, Vernon, Fremont,
and a suites recently made on Feather
River near its mouth, called Nicolaus.
Communication has opened with all parts
ot the Placer from the above points, and
the three regular steamboats which leave
this city for the great point of disembark
ation, Sacramento City, are on each of
their trips, crowded with passengers for
the gold diggings.
The weather has been delightful.
On the San Joaquin the disturbances
between Americans and Chilians are all
The Southern country is uniformly quiet,
rite past winter has been more severe
throughout all California than any during
the fifteen years preceding. The rains
have been constant in the neighborhood of
Los Angelos and San Diego, accompanied
with much cold weather. As spring now j
approaches the southern towns begin to be
deserted—the population flocking to the j
mines. The roads are fast becoming pas- j
sable in the north and south.
The " floating population" is gradually
drawing off, and digging implements are
taken up again. All , to speak compara
tively, are preparing for the mines, whence
great stories of marvellous luck are wafted
with every breath from the gold region.
Those who have remained in the various
diggings have labored at intervals during
the Winter with astonishing fortune. The
Alia Californian says that from three
ounces to five hundred dollars the yield
per diem has ranged for individual labor.
We have heard of still more extraordinary
results. It would be the height of folly to
attempt an estimate of the average pro
ductiveness of the diggings under these
circumstances. These are the figures and
they are the plain facts.
In San Francisco business is becoming
more brisk. Money still commands the
highest rate of interest—rents are falling
and real estate is at a stand ; lumber is
The news is very encouraging, from all
the placers. Gold dust is fast flowing into
Marysville, Yuba City, and other cities
near the mines, and money there is much
easier at present than it is at San Francisco.
One thing appears to be pretty well settled,
that the placers are richer after an overflow
than before, as the floods bring down gold
from above, sometimes even depositing a
considerable quantity in the holes which
had been d*ig out and left by miners.
A twenty-three pound lump of gold had
been exhibited in Stockton. It had been
found near Wood's dry diggings, between
the Stanislaus and Tuslumne, where many
pieces weighing fifteen and twenty ounces
had been obtained. It was said that a
931b. lump had been discovered and was
about to be brought to Stockton.
Number of passengers by ships arrived
at San Francisco from Jan. 29 to Feb. 27.
In American vessels 1,149 21
In Foreign vessels 887 126
Total 2,036 147—2,183
Number arrived from April, 1849, to Feb27 :
In American vessels 30,574 628
In Foreign vessels 9,507 930
Total 40,081 1,558—41,639
This does not include the immigration
over land and by coasting vessels ; and
those probably brought by some ships,
violating the law by taking more passen
gers than allowed, who do not report their
whole number on arrival.
The Presby'ery of California, in con
nection with the General Assembly of the
Presbyterian Church in the United States,
met at Bcnicia, on Wednesday, February
20. The opening sermon was preached
bv Rev. S. Woodbridge, and on the or
ganization of the body, Rev. Mr. Wil
liams, of this city, was chosen moderator,
and Rev. Mr. Woodbridge, clerk.
A correspondent of th vAlta Californium
*aw at Sacramento city a lump of the
pure stuff, weighing twelve pounds avoir
dupois, or about 11 pounds 7 ounces and
lo pennyweights Troy. It is of an irreg
ular egg shape, somewhat flattened, and of
about eighteen inches circumference one
way by twelve the other. Its intrinsic
\alue is at least #2,000, but the holders
have been offered s3,ooottiul #3,200 for it.
THE SLAVERY QUESTION.
Mr. Benton proceeded to address the
Senate on the Bth. It was proposed to
make the admission of California a part
of a system of measures for the settlement
of the whole question of slavery agitation.
He was opposed to this mixing of subjects
having no affinities, and in favor of giving
California admission, a separate Constitu
tion, and decision upon its own merits,
was a State, and should not be mixed
tip with anything below the dignity of a
State. She had washed her hands of sla
t<T\ at home, and should not be mixed up
with it abroad. H- was opposed to mix
ing the questions of admitting California
with all the questions which the slavery
fgitation had produced, and making one
general settlement of the whole, in the
nature of a compact or compromise. The
hiit—The creation of territorial governments
-Vew Mexico, and the remaining part of Cali
Second. —Creation of a new State in Texas —
"ho'iiofj of her bound a i settlement of her
; dispute with \ew Me xico and cession of her i

I Mird-Recapture of fugitive slaves.
• the rw . r ?, u PP ress >" of the slave trade in |
the District of Columbia.
r ,'f'l 1 abolition of slavery in the District
ot t olumbia.
Statcg /l ~ Ab ° lition ° f th ° sluTe trade in the
Seventh —Abolition of slavery within the U. S.,
and a non-enumerated catalogue of oppression,
; digression and encroachments upon the South.
I his was the list ot subjects, and he
i was against the mixture for reasons ap
plied to the whole in the lump, and to each i
j separate ingredient. California had the j
right to be treated as other Slates have
been when asking for admission into the
| In ion—none of which has been subjected
| to the indignity of having their application !
■ coupled with the addition of inferior and
| foreign questions, lie objected to it on
the principle of fair legislation, which re
j quired every measure to stand upon its
own merits. He objected on account of
the nature of the subjects to be compiled
with California, all angry, distracting, and
: threatening the Union with dissolution ;
; while her application is calm, conciliatory, !
! and promising to strengthen the Union. !
: He objected because California objected to j
it. She had provided in her Constitution j
that no legislative act should contain more j
than one subject, and that to be expressed I
in the title. j
lie next considered the objections as to
the connection of each of the proposed
measures, with the question of the admis
sion of California. The question of Ter
ritorial Government, brought up the Wil
inot Proviso—the principle involved in
which had already been settled by Cali
fornia for herself-—for the purpose' of re
moving all impediment to her admission.
How unjust, then, to connect it with the
question of her admission, to make her
admission dependent upon its precedent
settlement, with respect to two neighbor
ing territories—the proviso involved the
controverted constitutionality, and there
fore should not be mixed up with a sub
ject clearly beyond doubt, unconstitutional.
lie was ready to vote for governments
to the colonies, and believed that slavery
was extinct in New Mexico and all Cali
fornia, and cannot be revived in anv part
of either without positive enactments. He
was ready to vote upon the Texas ques
tion, and to vote upon the proposition lor
the recapture of fugitive slaves, but not to
tie them to a proposition lor the admission
of a new State. California had nothing
to do with these questions, no interest or
connection with them whatever.
For sixty years, the question of slavery
in the District of Columbia, and slavery
in the States, has remained untouched.
Therefore, there are no reasons for the agi
tation and fears professed in the slave
States. He desired to do with all these
questions as Congress had done for sixtv
years—let them alone. The fact that the
slave market is as good, and better now,
than sixty years ago, was an evidence
there is no danger to the rights of the slave
States. Not only was there no danger,
but he argued that Congress had, by the
act of Northern men, added slave territo
ry ; and this shows its disposition to build
up, instead of defeating, the slaveholding
As to the expediency of givipg all these
subjects to a committee, he asserted that
all their labors would be useless. If the
good faith of Congress, so long proved,
could not protect the rights of the States,
nothing could. He reviewed the history
of the admission of new States, and
commented upon it, to show that no State
had ever been treated as it was proposed
to treat California. He considered the
question of boundaries, contending that
California's were correct and natural. The
State could not be divided. He alluded to
and commented with much point on the
views expressed by Mr. Clav last week,
by which he warned the friends of Cali
fornia, that the speediest wav of getting
California into the Union would he by
coupling her with other measures—because
otherwise there was a combination which
would defeat the measure. He objected
to this capitulation by Congress to a fac
tional private combination—it was dishon
orable, and his motto was '• honor first—
by peace afterwards—but for no peace
with dishonor." He commented upon
the anomalous condition of California—
her urgent necessities, and the strong ne
cessity for immediate measures for her re
lief, and closed with an eloquent allusion
to the destiny of the countrv on the Paci
JlTy* MR. BKKDER, who was tried in Perry
county last week for the murder of his brother,
was acquitted on the standing plea of insanity,
lie was sentenced to the penitentiary until he
gives satisfactory evidence that he is a sane man.
We regard the sentence as well merited and
just, for, whether the criminal was altogether
sane or not, the murder was malicious and pre
meditated. We consider him just about crazy
enough to escape hanging, and just sane enough
to justify his sentence to the penitentiary instead
of the lunatic asylum.—Juniata Sentinel.

Lawns, Bareges, Tissues, Balza
A 1.1. the above goods in endless variety, at
.J.L the Celebrated Cheap Cash Store of
aps. C. L. JONES.
Know their Interests, and know
ing will maintain Ihcm;
Hence when ir.ey want goods at
and as low as can be bought in the State, they
because ever}' man, woman and child in the six
counties by this June know s that no cne can
sell lower and live. They have, with their
usual enterprise, brought, up a large lot of
aarsr sots bodm,
and opened thern to the gaze of admiring thou
sands while most of their competitors were
sleeping over the piles of Calicoes, Ginghams,
and a hundred other articles remaining "unsold
from last year' 9 purchases. These goods were
all selected with an eye to
Beauty, Fineness, and Dura
and bought at prices that throw twenty per
cent, men into the shades of oblivion. We
therefore invite our old costomers and about
(being a'l that we have room for at present) to
give us a call, and if we don't please ninety
nine out of every hundred in
Beauty, Quality and Price,
there is no longer any virtue in .
Cheap and Elegant C*oods.
There is no need of recapitulating what we
have, either in the
Dry Goods. Grocery, or any other Line,
as it is well known that we have everything
anybody else has, and a considerable sprink
j liog of neat, useful and pretty matters that
Oilier* have not.
j So let there be no delay among those who
want the first pick—we are
ARMED AND EQUIPPED
with an elegant yardstick, which measures
true, and in conjunction with our decks, are
ready to wait on all the ladies and gentlemen,
whether old or young, ugly or handsome, and
make them look better than they ever did be
fore after being rigged out in the splendid
goods we have provided for their gratification.
