The following additional particulars are from the

The City Council have appointed a Committee,
With power to procure all arms and amonition nec

of the city. The acting Mayor also has been or
dered to offer a reward of 61,000 for the apprehen

The following are the names of the killed :' W.
Woodland of the citizen party : of the squatters,
Maloney, Jesse Morgan, late of Holmes Co. Ohio,
and one person unknown.
Wounded—Mayor Bigelow, .1. H. Harper, Mr.
Hale, and a young daughter ol Mr. Rogers. The
only squater wounded was Dr. Robinson.
Al the first fire, the Mayor, who showed himself
through the whole a brave and determined man
was wounded very dangerously. One ball glancej
his cheek, another passe-il into his thigh, cup tore
off his thumb and shattered the bones of his hand,
'and a fourth produced the most serious wound of
all.. The ball passed through the body in the re
gion of the liver.
.Since the favorable reaction last night, good
simptoms have continued to prevail. He has very
little pain, and rests and breathes easy. Sanguine
hopes are entertained of his recovery.
Maloney the leader of the squatters, was an Irish . -
man. lie has formerly lived in Vermont. He was
one of Riley's company in Mexico, who deserted
from the American army and too ht with the !deli
cans. After the Americans took him prisoner, be
was branded on the cheek with the letter D, and
allowed to go free. He has since,. either by an ad

A Foavcarra Mince —We yestenlay conversed

gave us an account of the good fortune of a man
named Johnson. He has been in the mines but
three days in all, and will return home wtih the
largest " pile" ever taken not in the 'same length
of time. He commenced, work on the south branch
of the Middle Fork of Feather River, digging up.

He then sold out his claim for $lB,OOO. and pack
his dust upon a mule, and started for this city. He
will probably reach here in a day or two. This is
undoubtedly the best day's work ever done in Cal.

Hoasoss or Inn Deseay.—The Tama*, Sec

tleman who has just arrived in the country by the
northern overland route from the United States, who
tgaloorroborates the distressing accounts of suffer
• ong the emigrants. He meld numbers who
very nearly exhausted their provisions and
•wdre dragging onward - wearily, almost bereft of
hope. Families they were reduced to a state bor
dering on destitution and , staivaiion,'smong which
the helpless infant shared the keen pangs of dis
tress alike with the watchful mother and
father. There were numerous graves along the
road, 'nth-frequently were found' bodies unburied,
deserted by all human kind, where victims to dis
ease and famine had laid themselves down to die.

DARING o uTRAGg .—O n Saturday evening fast, as
Mr. Richard White of Roxbury, a proprietor of the
Roxbury grain mills, was returning home about
nine o'clock, he was roosted and threatened by
Patrick Mc.Ardb3, who was discharged from his
employ some time since, on account of drunken
ness' lac. Mr. White took no notice of this, as he
had been threatened before, but proceeded home.
Mimi two o'clock in the morning, he was awak
ened by a noise, in his room, and on rising to ,as
certain the cause, 'he was met by a man. Mr:
White immediatelyealled to his br.aher, Who slept
with him, and to a man who slept in the next
room. He had no weapon at hand to defend him

Mr. White plumped him to the yard, but rettrnied
to the kitchen and seized a stout cane, .and then

The fellow turned and presented a pistol at his,
head, saying, if he spoke another word he would
blow his brains oat. Mr. Mite struck his cane at
the pistol, which the fellow snapped, but it mired

his heels, leaving the pistol. Ihe brother of Mr;
White and his man waited to put on their clo heti
before they joined him, and in the darkness of the,

He has seen a great measure, with which his

We rejoice to read the announcement of the re
nomination to Congress of Pacrros Knot by the
United Democracy of St. Lawrence and Lewis
The renomination—which we will not doubt to
have been as unanimously awarded on the part of
the Convention, as it was generally .desired by the
constituency of the counties, and expected by the
democrats throughout the State—is a flattering but
just tribute totherinn and unyielding and:tlemocrat-
IC,course of Mr. King.
In the present Congress I?tr. King had stood, al
most alone as the representative of a democratic
constituency in his State, (tor his sole democratic
colleague, Mr. Walden, though uniting with him
generally in his votes, unfortunately differed with
him on a most important question) but there were
few democrats that did not feel that the Empire
State was most honorably and effectively
We reganl a renomination in this *lance, as
the guaranty of an election, and look forward to
Mr. King's return to the Congress of 1852,10 r a con
tinuation of his honorable and patnotic career, not
less lull of gond fruit and fraught with honor, and
acceptable to his constituents, than has been his
past representative coarse.—Actor. •

The Stark ammly (Ohio,) Daaocrat has the mel
ancholy news that five citizens of Canton, and a
man from Wisconsin, were murdered by the Indi

Dentocnit says :
The persons from Canton so ruthless massacred
are William McCalSmu& D. Kaufman, Ed•

The Wisconsin gentleman was Daniel E. Wash
born, from, Janeville in that S:ate. He leaves a
wife and family to mourn his lo.s. Samuel D
Kaufman also leaves a wile and family to mourn
his loss. The circumstances of the bloody tragedy
as we gather them from two letters from George
Siock, the only one who escaped to tell the tale,
to his sister. Mrs. S. D. Kaufman, and. a letter to
ourself from 1k R. H. McCall, are these :

wrapped themselves in their blankets and fell
asleep. About midnight they were awakened by a
volley ofarrows being fired among them, one of
which hit Mr. S. D. Kaufman in the forehead and
killed him. instantly. At the same time Henry
Koaftnan, Levi Banal, Edwund Mellen and Deo.
Stock were Willy wounded. They were net again

and were waiting till an emigrant train should come
up, which they expected shortly
About a o'clock some five or six Indians eame
to them and endeavored by sign and gesture o -in
duce them to leave that place. Not understanding
the motives of the Indians, they determined to
await the arrival of the train. While so waiting,
they were soon seized by a large body of airrage.,
stripped of their clothing, and butchered in celd
blood, by the river's edge, with the exception of
Mr. Stock. Mr. Stuck, as soon as divested of his
clothing, plunged iota the river, andlhough fired at
and wounded badly in five places, swam across
the river and concealed himself between the drift
wood. and bushes. He lay there till
,five o'clock,
and though the savages searched for him a great
part of the day, they did not find him. At SP. 5L
a small train came along and rescued him from his
perilous situation.
It seems they had thrown everything away after
crossing the mountains except one suit of clothes
and provisions, and were pushing along at from
Misty to fifty miles a day. Mr. S. does not say
they had any fire arms. Their only refnge from
starvation was in getting soon to the digging. //

The C o tto* Trade.
From the annual statement of the cotton trade,
published in the New Orleans paper it appears
that the total production in the United Slates iQ 184
was 1,026,600,000 pounds, valued at *66,400,000.
.The probable estimate for 1850 is 2,800.000 bales.
The consumption in the United States, the past year
was 626,712 bales—exports 2 : 228,834 bales-
Decrease in entire crop estimated at 616,000 bale.
