Y CALIFORNIA. 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. ALARMS OF FIRE; We ban? had several lately ; and it becomes our riliA'iis io be exceedingly careful, at ttiis sea son of the year.

THE MARKETS. 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 Favetteville, March 27. Cotton 6 a Cj.

C, whoso 1 hems was unanimously selected by die 1 acuity for the Aunuul Prize. . GIVING CREDIT. 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 ail tveastk. The pointed instance, to which we shall now . refer, will justify ns, in the minds of all our can did brethren. The last Roanoke Republican pub lishes the speech of Col. W. L. Long, and acrom inline it hy nearly a Column of comments ; yet did . it not occur to the Editor to breathe a whisper that that speech wa originally published in Me Times of the 15th instant but we have ncrcr taken anything from the Republican, without due craft. We had the pleasure of writing that speed), with this hand, from the talented author1 own lips: he will do us full justice : and wbv could nut our jcoteniporary 1 We procured that speech for our columns yet The Republican pub- lube it as if he had procured it for hk. Rank piracy, by George I 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 annum, Sic.', and who shall perform all such other 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 Treasury," &c. 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." The organ of the retiring d . miUtmtion at Wash ington, outdoes itselfin fulsome laudation of the con cern overwhelmed by the edict of the people. Such a course is simply ridiculous, because those who hvo condemned it acts are not likely to repent of tin verdict deliberately given. Nash. Banner. Mrc. Alexander Hamilton, has become a per manent resident at Washington, and baa taken a house on Capitol Hill. She is in her 92d year, has seen every President inaugurated, and retain a vivid remembrance of (he past, and a lively inte rest in all the mdfal and political question of Hie day. Senator Badger, of North Carolina, ha also become a house keeper at Washington, as well as Senator Benton and other. We hope the com forts of the Federal Metropoli may not tend to pro long the Sessions of Congress. N. Y. Express Prihtiso Presses, PuLrtTs and Women These are the three great lever that goverrt the movement of the world. W'ithout them the bot tom would fall out, and society would become chaos again. The press make the people patri otic, the pulpit religious, but woman answercth all things. There would be no going to church if there were uo girl there neither would there be any paing to war were the soldiers to meet with no applause except from the masculine. Without the sunshine shed by women, the rose buds of affection would never bloom, not the flower of eloquence germinate. In short she is the steam engine of delight, and the great motive power of love, valor, and civilization. Exchange. A letter in the Baltimore Clipper, dated Wash- iglon, March 52d, says: Mr. Blackwcll, late of the National Hotel, it is aid, failed for f 46,000. He is not in Washing tan ; and a gentleman yesterday was detained as a prisoner with a view of forcing frm him his whereabouts, simply because he had been intimate ith Mr. Blackwell, and had recently travelled with bim a far a Philadelphia I TmiEATENtHO Letters. Mr. Wm. B. Astor, of New York, recently received certain threaten ing letters, stating that unless he paid over $50, 000, his life and property were to suffer. A simi lar letter was received by Mrs. Aster. Mr. Astor placed the communications itl the bauds of the po- ice, who recommended some byplay en his part, GOLD COMING. The purser of the U, S. storeship Lexington, writes to New York from Sari Francisco that lie has $178,000 iu dust, which he is to ship from Valparaiso to Panama, and so to the States. It will probably reach Panama by the British Pacific steamer, in season to be taken hy the Crescent City on her return. A mercantile house in South street, N. Y., has now $30,000 in gold dust watt ing at Panama. It will probably be brought on the Northerner. VIRGINIA INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS. The Richmond Times says that tho late Legis lature was marked by the adoption of a very unu sual number of measures of Internal Improvement, of which it designates the following as tho most important : .' . The bill for the Virginia and Tennessee railroad makes a State subscription of three-fifth of the ca pital of three millions, or ono million eight hundred thousand dollars. The bill for the Blue Ridge Railroad appropri ates from the treasury one hundred thousand dol lars annual', for three years, for the construction REMEDY FOR THE CALIFORNIA FEVER A friend who has seen some service in camp life, offers to those afflicted with the prevailing ep idemic the following prescription : I t. Sleep tliroe nights in your wood-house with the door open and swinging in the wind, during which time, let your diet be pork, cooked by yoar self, at a smoky Are ifl the garden. Sd. Improve all the rainy nights in sloping between your cur rant bushes and pnrden fence. 3d. On the fourth day of your regime, let the diet be mule steak. 4th. Thereafter, dispense with all kinds of food Save dog meat. If this be followed resolutely, it i confidently believed a permanent cure will be effected. Both were committed for examination; and thedeposite of a package to the writors,which resulted in the arrest of Franklin fJ; Bragg, of No. of a railroad and tunnel from the casters base of 6, and Isaac A. Biggs, of No. 21, Mdrton street, the Blue Kidge,at Keckhsh Gap, to Waynesboro , in Augusta, and further subscribes three-fifth of one hundred and fifty thousand, or ninety thousand dollars; for the extension of the railroad to Staun ton; Tho bill for tlic Alexandria and Orange railroad subscribes ati additional filth, or one hundred and eiglity thousand dollar for the construction of tlut work, a subscription of two-fifths having been alrea dy authorized by an act of the last Legislature. ' Another bill authorises the State s guaranty to the bond of the James riter and Kanawha com pany, Iti Ihe amount of three hundred and fifty thousand dullara for completing (lie connection be tween the canal and tidewater, and of one hundred and fifty thousand for completing the Rivanua and South Side connexions. Another bill appropriates $00,000 for macadam izing a portion of tho Staunton arid Parkersburg Road. v -.. .' . The lills above enumerated authnfize an aggre gate appropriation of $2,93O,0tw; and besides these leading measures, a large number of appro priations have been made for different Turnpike, chiefly ia the western part of the State. SIGNIFICANT FACT. The New Orleans Crescent publishes the re port of a Committee appointed for the purpose of ascertaining the number of death by Asiatic Cho lera which occurred among the Sons of Temper ance iu that City, and tho adjoining towns during the recent epidemic. The Committee state that there are t-velvc hundred and forty-three mombers of the different Division in New Orleans Lafay ette, Algiers, and Gretna. In these divisions three deaths only occurred, and in tome of them not a case of Cholera took place. Of those who died, one had beet, a member but a woek, another less than a month, and the third was a watchman who was much exposed. The proportion of deaths in tho City was fifteen to every thousand souls, while in the Son of Temperance the psoportien was one in more than each four hundred members. ' i Till MISSION TO BERLIN.

We learn the Baltimore Annual Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, the first in rota tiun , has ananimotwly passed a resolution author izing and recommending that the properly ques tion, in dispute between the Northern and South em branches of the Church; be lubmitted to arbi tration. Should the Annual Conference follow the example, and it seem to be generally expect' ed that they will, the Constitutional difficulty will be removed. The South, having made prepara tions for commencing a suit to establish their claim will have incurred some expenses; but probably these will be made matter of arrangement should an amicable adjustment of the other difficulty be agreed upon. Mr. McGadgiiet, of Indiana, who was ttoaiiua ted as Governor of the territory of Minesota, has been rejected by the Senate. The Union say the Vote on the nomination was a strictly party one, all the Whig voting for its confirmation, all the opposition for its rejection ; and we are advi I d by '.he late official journal that its party friends Voted against it because Mr. McGacgiiev: was opposed to the late war with Mexico, and whilst in Congress voted against carrying it on I The conclusiveness of this objection, when made to the appointment of a person to the office of Gov ernor of Minesota, now that the war has ended, is not very clear, Baltimore Patriot. .
