[From the Alt* California, April 15.] Wc havo followed the example set us at the East by deciding a ''slave ease." The boy claimed as a slave was set at liberty. There was no evidence ; further than that ho was Mr. Calloway's slave in i Missouri. He was ilischarged. Judge Morrisson, of the Court of Sessions, has resigned his offico, although three years of his term remaiB. Some of our streets have been lighted by the sub scriptions of individuals rc-iiling or doing business upon them. Montgomery and Merohant streets ? are thus made pas-able,safe, and pleasant at night. 'J*hc examination of Slater, a-cusod of the aa ] sassinntion ef Captain Jit-vis, at the Mission Do- j lores, caused no littlo excitement, and a rush was made to tako him from the hands of the police, but | with no effect. The prisoner was committed to I await thouction of the (Irand Jury. Two men were shot in Sacramento, while attempt- : ing a burglary, by Captain Ward, who was expect- , ing and watching for them. Ono was killed upon the spot; his nume was Joo Ogden; the other, Deo. ; Morton, was shot in his leg, had his leg amputated, . but died subsequently. Captain Ward was cleared | ofall blame. Sotno effort has been made by a citiren, Rlr A. D. obtain the privilege of supplying I tho city with water, by introducing it in pi;*'# from a lake about throe mi cs distant. Nothing particularly new respecting the Indian commissioners, and their progre-s in treaties with the savages. Gen. Bean nas been authorised to raise fifty men. to protect the people in the Los An- j gelcs valley against the incursions of the Indians throigh the Cajon Pass. An attempt has been made to have Judge Levi Parsons, of this judicial district, impeached for his course in reference to tho contempt ease heretofore reported. But the majority of tho committee re ported against it. ^ _ i The mail steamer Oregon arrived on the nRer- ' noon of tho 2d inst., bringing tho news from the i States to as late a dato as Feb. 28th. The report | of probable appropriations by Congress for the bone- | fit of California, hud a great effect in momentarily runnii g up ?tatc scrip. But it run down again very soon. General Persifer K. Smith has been ordered to 1 Texas, and goes home in the steamer to-day. A great ileal of dissatisfaction has been felt and exhibited respecting the issue and circulation of privato coins, below their face [value of real value, , and which the coiners refuse to redeem. It is I looked upon us an infamous swindle, by the com munity; tho bankers have refused to receive it at 1 its ussuinod value, and the merchants have taken | somewhat similar action. The Legislature ha- a bill before it, introduced by Mr. Miller, to oblige coiners to redeem, and to make their refusal a mis- . demeanor, punishable with fine and imprisonment. Our felons who have been set to work in the chain j gang, are occupied in building a county jail. The robbers and highwaymen in which this State abounds, have been making the valleys in the vici- | nity of Monterey their theatre of operations of late, having possession of the whole country there, steal- , ing horses and cattle, and creating a fear that Monte rey itself may be sacked by them in the absence of the men, who are mostly at tho mines. _ j The Legislature having refused to authorise the Attoraey Gcnoral to enter a noUt pro?tqui in the , case of the squatters, their trial would have come off on the 7th inst., but no judge \ did not occur. . There has been more lynching at the mines, i This state of affairs is lamentable; but we caution our friends in tho cast against judging us by the same criterion they would use there. They can not fully appreciate our condition without seeing > and tecling it. , , .. Tho 1-egi.dature having confirmed the ordinance granting the right of constructing a plaak road to t the Mission, that undertaking, already partially i carried into effect, will soon be jompleted, wheu we shall have ono of the most pleaaaut drives imagi- , rut hie, it to tho cou itry.and yet not out of tke oity. Our City Attorney's report show# a tremendous amount of litigation, amounting to over two mil lions of dollars for the past year. j Politics havo been rather bri-k of late, both whigs and demociaU doing their be?t to organise. They are preparing for the municipal election, to coroo off In about two weeks. The legislative committee appointed to examine into the manner in which the Mate Marine Hospi tal has been conducted in this city, have reported j very sevctely upon the conduct of the resident phy- i aician, I?r. fltibbaid, who has petitioned the Legis lature for the privilege of appearing before it.aiid disproving the charges again*', him. The charges of gross raisjondnet against the re sident physician of the City Hospital, Dr. Chapin, preferred by one or two aldermen, could not bo sus tained, by a particle of evidence upon the exami nation instituted, but fell completely to the ground. We have reason to believe that they originated entirely in malice, and that there was not the sha dow of a feeble truth in the whole of them Some degree of interest has been felt here in re- j fereuce to tne anticipated blockade of Honolulu by j the French. It may not be the intention of that j government to scire theso islands; but if it ia, and j I ad* Pam does not take effii ieut measure* to pre- ) vent such nn outiage, there are men enough and skips enough here la California to put the whole matter right, and It will be done. We make this prognostication for tho good of whoin It may con ccrn. Accounts are earning In, of new discoveries o'au riferou- mines in various parts of the country. The recent rains have also h?d their effect upon placer- j digging, helping the gulch diggings and for a time | driving thooe engaged upon the rivers, from their positions. . In ccnncction with the above we have to notice the discovery near Benieia if a coat bed, said to be of a superior quality. It is located within a few j milts of the I'at-ifle Mail Meamship Company's dc| ot. Many bed# of ooal have beon discovered in j Oregon; so that the 1'settle stemu marine ia likely j to be well supplied scon with this very iinportirit article. A bill has passed the legislature, establishing a j St a e Marine Hospital at Sacramento, and appro- I piatingiffO.tstOf oin the Statet e.tsury toward that i obics t. The execution of Macsuley, aenten-ed tolen at ' yesterday, has b?en postponed by a r< spit* f "ii the Governor nntil his counsel'# bill of exceptions j and motion for a new trial can bo argued bef>.? the Supreme Owiit.

The boy was brought up on a writ of habtn* lOrpws be fore thr County Court, and the ease was ably con tested for the la#', two dayi The only quest ion in the case was, whether the petitioner we# restrained f uni his liberty contrary to law.

Upon these considera tions, hie Honor came to the oohclusion that the prisoner was illegally detained, and accordingly ordered his discharge. Newt from Sacramento Valley. We learn that a lynching affair caino off at Brown's bar, on Weber creek. A man named An drew .Scott, from St. Genevieve, Mo., murdered his partner, Mr. Bakor, by inflicting five severe stabs with a knife, oithcr of which would have caused death, 'lite act was committed without the least provocation. Scott was tried by a jury of twelve men, who decided that ho should be hung, which was immediately carried into execution. Charles li. Hfackmcr died very suddenly at Beni cia, on last Thursday morning. The Timu, in its news from Nevada, has nn ac count of tho lynching of three men, Miller, Al len, and Rigley, who were concerned in robbing ^lr. Napper of $2,000 some time since. They con fessed the robbing, and stated that they had lost about half the amount at mo>Ue. Rigley received MUU thirty-nine lashes, and Allen and Miller twenty each, well laid on. They were required to imme diately leave the country. The mining operations in that vicinity are prose cuted witn great success. The Sugar I?oaf Tunnel, after having been prosecuted for 300 feet, encoun tered a lead that does not prove very rich. A cold blooded murder has been committed near Port Adams, in Calaveras county. The body of Mr. W. C. Babbitt, late of Morgan county. 111 , was fuund in a small cunyon, near that place. The de ceased was shot in the left breast am! the temples; one of bis hands was also badly cut. On Friday last, snow fell to the depth of eight feet in Onion Valley, on Feather river, about one hundred miles above Maryrville. 'Jlie tributaries of Feather river have been greatly swollen by the late rains. Considerable snow has fallen recently at Toll's Diggings, and all along the south fork of Foaiher river, but not enough to impede mining. The Transcript gives tho following account of a murder by the Indians:? We lesrn by n gentleman who came down yesterday, that the Indians have grown extremely troublesome in the region <f Wyandotte City, which is situated in th? llonrut country, near one of the tributaries of Feather river. About two jears since, a miner who was out pros pecting. was shot by some Indians. Ills body wis found pierced with a number of arrows, and the impres sion seemed lobe general that he bad been killed by the Indians for his money. As soon as the dead body of the white man was found, a number of the miners armed themselves and proceeded to a raneherie some eight or ten miles distant, for the purpose of taking vengeance Having been di covt red, the Indians took to the hills, leaving only a tew squaws behind. The white* set Are to their huts, and burnt and tore them down. Not be ing sufficiently strong, they returned to their camp, with out giving pursuit to the Indians A large ameunt of stock was in the possession of the Indians, which had liern stolen from time to time from the gbites Our in formant states, that a large body of miners were arming and equipping themselves fur the purpose of giving pur suit to the retiring Indians, ami tbey would make an effort to recapture the stork. Quite a number of the In dians are armed with rifles and shot guns, though they are not exper t in the ust^L^em iv^Pia The Trrnnnnrtft say^^iat Saeramcot^^fc so healthy that the professional geutlcmef^H^^feto work hard to keep a pat^^dovn longeno^^to make tbrce visit*. Ihis is the case in almost every part of California. The prospect* of the miner* at Bear river were said to dc exceedingly flattering. Minor* at l-ong Bar, on the Yuba, are averaging from ? ? to $tt per day. A large number of French men are at work there. Miners are taking out from one to two ounce* a day on Poor Man'* Creek. George Morton, the man who was shot while at tempting to commit burglary, i* likely to lose hi* life. Hi* leg baa been amputated near the thigh, but there are only slight hope* of hi* recovery. Anothkx Man Shot.?hdward J. Allender was brought to the prison brig at Sacramento on the 12fli ult., with a ball in bis shoulder blade, having been shot while entering a rancho on tho road to Auburn. The Tran/rript publishes a letter from Mr. Gile* O. Stnbbins, datca(al Raccoon Creek, in which he state* that lato lift October, whilat prospecting in the mountains, about the head water* of Feather river, himself and partner* found themselves short of provisions, and they then started on a hunting excursion. While thus engaged they came across a small creek where they pitched their camp, in tending to prospect along the stream. Mr. Stub bins writes that they had fuund they had hit the sr. t tlu-y were looking for. In one pan of dirt tney took (I, and they have continued at the same jioint ever since, making a daily average of f.ri<) per day. We are informed that he has ail tho gold he wants, which we would deem quite likely, if they made many $H0<> hauls, and that they would leave their uuurters as soon as they could get out. A party of eight or ten persons at Canon Creek, In the neighborhood of Onion Valley, are supposed to bat e perished from cold and starvation. The anow i* represented as being very deep and provi sions quite ?

The contract itipulate* that the mail shall leave each point < nee a month, *o that we ihall have advices lii'tn the Great Salt I-ake City, once every month The bid* for this contract are of a most varied character. The one which probable obtained the sing offtluW <>ne gentleman contract was rising j ut in a bid for the same contract at 445,000. Thr 7'inaS- learns that the exploration* upon Salmon river were entirely unsuccessful, and that i.ntbir>g of consequence is being done in that re gion. On the Trinity, the large concourse of miner* are averaging half an ounce per day. The t Vwleams that at Tolle's dry diggings < vcvytbing is at a atand-still on account of the heavy fall of mow. Some rleh *pot* have, how ever, been discovered, which yielded t-l 50 to $1 iv ? to the pan, and a* much as Ave ounces to fifteen bucket* of earth. An Indian was recently kiltod seven mile* from those diggings. T wu m inert cams in, ai d reported that they baa hern attacked by the It.dinns.

Ooe of the most lamentable of the bloody trage dies that daily disgrace the State, occurred at We ber creek, near CoToma. Two young men, named Andrew K. Scott, and Charles O. Baler, friendsand messmates, became embroiled, from some trivial cause, when Scott assaulted Baker with a knife, and stabbed him so severely that no hope was enter tained of his recovery. Scott was immediately taken into ouatody by the populace, tried, convicted, and hung on tb? same day. When sentence of death was pronounced, he begged to be shot, us it would break bis father's heart to hear that his son had been hung. Ilia prayer was not heard, and he re ceived the ignominious fate ef a felon. Scott was intoxicated at the tima ho assaulted his friend. He was from St. Genevieve, Mo. Three men, recently arrested for robbery at Ne vada, were taken from the hands of the legal au thorities by the populace, on Friday last, anl, nfter an informal trial, were tied up and scverel/ flogged. One of the men had been discharged for want of evidence, and it was thought the others would get off likewise; and the people determined to take the law into their own bunds, upon the principle that it was better that three innocent inea should suffer than that no one should pay the penalty of crime. While undergoing flagitation one of the men con fessed his own guilt, and implicated the others. A man named James Burns, better kuown as P lash Jim, about town, was arrested April 12tb, charged with the murder of James C-alligun. It is known that Burns had threatened the life of t'alli gan several times, and they were seen together on the night of Calligan's death, at the Philadelphia Hnd Baltimore Restaurant, on Pacific street. It appears, however, that they were at that time

upon very good terms, and drank together several times in the course of the evening, and there is no proof that they left the house together. On the morning following, the body of CaTligan was found floating in the water near the foot of Jaakson street, and but a few rods from the house in which he boarded. The bouse, which is kept by a man named Kdwards, is built upou piles, and there being no house adjoining, it may easily be supjiosed that an intoxicated person, in attempting to rap on the door, might mis" his footing and faliinto the water. The time was probably about three o'clock in the morning, and consequently quite dark, there being no moon at that hour. Important to Navigators. [From tli* Alt* California.
