We confess we have been a gnod deal bewilder
ed by the many accounts we hare seen, wiiinii tin1
last three or Tour months, or this El Dr:id ; nd
have coine tu tlie condition, that, among the ol'U-u
conflcting intelligence, it it hard totelt liow far re
liance can be placed upon the new with which al
most every paper twins. One woulJ think, tint
from tlto great quantities of preciru motal report
ed to abound, and from the large amounts reported
to be obtained, by almost every body thero, in very
short period of time, that a continued and rich
stream of it would, by thin time, be flowing into
our country. But lh receipts of Gold here from
California are mengre but very little of it has
been coined it Is by no means certain that much
has been shipped and we have seen no accarak
mention of any one having returned with a fortune
obtained by hi own It-bor in the " gold diggim."
l'erhapi some might say it is yet too early to ex
pect thin satisfying, and we uiight say, occular
proof of the richness of the California mines. We
answer, it is only what one would be led to expect
from the accounts us published. For if a fortune
can be obtained in some two or three mouths, sure
ly some lucky possessor of said fortune would
drift along homeward, bringing it witli him, and
putting the mattor beyond dispute tslling his story
plainly and Intelligibly, and noin'.ing.to the gli.ter
ing muss in its confirmation. When this is done,
we may have less reason to wonder ut the " !
jii'u" which prevails, and may owu ourselves sub
ject to the iJo infection.
We apprehend, however, it is no matter of dis
pute that the Gold region of California is very
lich, and, in time, a man may gatlier enough ol it,
to make hiiii comfortable marry, not without la
',. bar. And if any one has been tolled off there, ii.
tlw' expectation that the guttering is an easy taek ;
that gold can be picked up, in junks, on top of the
ground, and that he will have nothing to do, but to
till up his bag, and bear it safely away with him to
a land of comfort, we are confident he will be very
sorely deceived. We rather think that tho loafer
here, will be nothing but a loafer, when he gets to
California ; and in any view of the case, it is only
the fe.Wer the industrious, sober and prudent la
borer, who would win gold in California, ;to' be
useful and beneficial tu himself and to his family ;
as it is only that class that deserves to win it hero
or clsevhere, and to enjoy it after it is obtained.
It is probable that the mania lui somewhat sub
sided in our country. It is now a mouth since
we liad any reliable news from California. The
dearih has-been so severely felt, that much intelli
gence has thorefore been coiwa' to excite tho pub
lic mind. The sober reality, we hope, will soon
be knowu ; so that men may not be deceived and
disappointed, to gather a fortune In a day would
bo too great luck even for California to aflqrd,and
it would be belter not to look for it in any event,
no matter what may bo said. The first nf April
i nearly here and micfc and late news may there
fore be expected direct and prodigious.

The accounts brought by the Canada, show
that the British Markets are dull and gloomy.
Tho war news from India, and the news from this
country of the large amounts of Cotton at the prin
cipal exporting ports, ha given a decided check to
the Cotton Market, and caused prices to decline a
quarter of a penny per lb. Fair Uplands are now
quoted at 4 a 5 eighths ; Mobile, 5 and 3 fourths ;
and Orleans, 5 and 7 eighths.
The quotations from the Northern markets are
therefore of little consequence, until the effects of
the above news are felt

The cool manner in which some of our brethren
of the press are in the habit of appropriating our
articles, without giving credit, has almost ceased
to amaze iw. Justice and fair dealing, it would
rem to us, requires a different course yet most
of the papers in the StUe, (with one or two hon
orable exceptions) have niado no bones of availing
themselves of our labor in reporting and publish
ing proceedings of the Legislature, and sketches
and full reports of speeches, which cost us both
toil and mwncy, without any acknowledgment
whatever, and as if Ihey had incurred the labor
and expenditure themselves taking them bodily
4'rom the " Raleigh Times," without letting their
reader know there la such a paper in existence.
We are aware that the press in Raleigh has
usually been subjected to such depredations yet
is it no less unfair though we have never com
plained of it before. And we have only now to
say, that we are always gratified whenever we
can present any thing worthy of being copied by
our cotemporaries and if they so consider it, they
smght to be willing to do us sheer justice, which is
The pointed instance, to which we shall now

lishes the speech of Col. W. L. Long, and acrom
inline it hy nearly a Column of comments ; yet did

that that speech wa originally published in Me

taken anything from the Republican, without due
craft. We had the pleasure of writing that

own lips: he will do us full justice : and wbv

A brother of the Editor of the A'ieJ Republican,
who lately emigrated to the Mormon country, com
municates the annexed information as to the ex
travagant views of the Mormons respecting the
erection of a new Temple :
" The new Mormon Temple at the Salt Lake is
to be a splendid building. They enclose a lot
seventeen miles long and twelve wide, with a mud
wall eight feet high and four feet thick. There
are to be cities inside. They have discovered
mountain rock that resembles cornelian stone,
which is beautiful for temples aud pillars. The
size of the temple is not stated, but its highest
point is to be six hundred feet, and can be seen
eighty miles cither way."
v THE OPPOSITION'. '
The restless Democracy, as we expected, are
picking at tlto new administration in every possi
ble manner, and where they hare nsthing tangi
ble even, they
" Hint a fault, and hesitate dislike."
We do not know that there ought to be any
cause of complaint, on this score, among General
Taylor's friends. But, when we recollect how
candid some of these presses have protended to be
disposed towards the administration, in asserva-
ting that they would "judge it by its measures,''
we find that the estimate we put upon their pro
fessions amounted to just what we mad it, and
that, let the administration be ever so faultless,
they wore not to be pleased. If General Taylor
makes the appointments, he ought to leave them to
the Secretaries t if the Departments make them,
why then General Taylor ought to do it, and' not
shift the responsibility from his own shoulders to
those of his Secretaries. The truth is, so far as
they ate concerned, the President must be impaled
oil one or the other horn of every dilemma ; and
he could not please those gentry, the Locofoco Edi
tors, eveu were he to try which he is far from
doing. The National Intelligencer thus summa
rily dispose of the Chief Croaker, on one point :
" The 'Union' carries its carninc aeainst the
new Administration of the Government beyond all
bearub'e bounds. In that paper of Friday last,
for example, the attention of its readers is called
'to the mural-effect' of the fact that tin? appoint
incut of Mr. Penrose to the post of Assistant Sec
retary of the Treasury has been declared to be
not 'an appointment of the Administration, but
one made by Mr. Meredith,' (the Secretary ot the
Treasury,) whereat the venerable Editor expresses
his horror ot such a 'smiting of responsibility
from the l'reridont upon his Secretary, aud asks
the question, 'And is this really the doctrine which
is to be preached up by the Administration V To
which w o reply, Yes, reallv : the doctrino
'preached up' h) the present Administration is
that of implicit obedience to the laws. In the
very number ot the Union in which this question
is found, was published at large the Act of Con
gress containing the provision by which the office
of Assistant Secretary of the Treasury is estab
lished, the terms of which are literally as fol
lows: " Sec. 13. And be it further enacted, That an
officer shall be appointed in the Treasury Depart
ment, by the Secretary of the Treasury, to bo
called tho Assistant Secretary of the Treasury,
whese salary shall be three thousand dollars pc-r

duties in the "tfice of tho Secretary of tho Trea
sury, now performed by somo of his clerks, a
m:ty be devolved ou him by the Secretary of the
Under this plain and positive enactment, who
but the Secretary of the Treasury could have ap
pointed tlie.Assistaid Secretary ?
Letjtju'" Union be ro-nssured. 1 he last thing
that, can ever be truly alleged against l'residenl
Taylor will be his shrinking from any responsibili
ty that his station devolves upon him."

These are the three great lever that goverrt the

professes to bo au fait iu such matters :
The new Parisian bormet is a trifle smaller, and
less broadly arched over the forehead than last
winter. The materials are, of course, of tho
lightest description abort of positivo diaphony
which is held iu reserve for midsummer and New
port. The outsido embellishment consist of a
single bunch of small fresh spring flowers, of
iiiilo blush rose. Iinide a flowery labyrinth
ding gracefully and caressingly to the downy
cheek, and iu this department tlie exquisite and
still inimitable taste, talent, art tall it what yen
will, I name It genius of the Parisian milliner,
i displayed in it highest amd snort delicate form.
The favorite colors of the new bonnet are pink
and white indeed nothing else it strictly tllowa-
ble ; and as nine-tenth of all the well dressed
ladies on promenade wear green mantilla, and
half of them gtvea dresses aa well, (be effect of
these piak and white bonnet, with their delicious
trimmings, it indescribably charming. Every
where the eye is refreshed with the tender contrast
of toft greed and blasting pint, taw when, here
and there, it reposed for a moment on a mow
white bonnet, curving gracefully at a tea-shell
arouud a face beautiful at Aphrodite.
