Toe Legislature may, Ha sheer despera tion at tbe iir possibility of pat:hiog up our dilaoiaatsd concern, overcome tbe difficulty by catting Gordian kwet, and allow us to commence business u a corporate body d* num. They must do something quickly ? tba nuat fail. Mining Hews. ?ear Columbia, at Knickerbocker, on Saturday laat, Toasbert & Co. took out twenty ounces in half a day. Steal* k Sinclair, adjoining the above, took out twenty two ouncea and 116. on Friday laat. One snare in this alaim sold for 91,000 laat week. Knowle* A Co., near the Philadelphia House, found a Ore pound lamp on Monday. Maura. Wm. Ac Henry Hudson, on Kanaka creek, two ?tiles from Jacksonville, weak before laat, took out an ounce per day to the mm. Brooks & Montgomery, at the same place, are averag ing an ounce and a half per day to the man. lhe Kanaka Bar Company, near the mouth of the creet, week before laat, took oat 980 clear to the share. There are ten sharea in the company. AH the miners a*ove Jacksonville, on Wood's creek, for thrco cr four miles, aro avenging from $4 to $ 7 per day ; and a large number are doing much bettor, the claims have paid better within the past year, on this por tion of Wood's creek, than ever before since the mines have been discovered. Diamond {"primm.? New and exceedingly rich dig gings have been discovered within a few miles of DU mord Springs. The locality is is a south westerly di rection from this place, ana includes both sides of Dry Canon, extending fiomthe r'dge near Logtown to Big Canon. Reports of an almost marvelous character are in circulation. But little work or prxpect'ng has yet yet been done in that region. Three Irishmen coin arencec some time ago, worked three woe us without get Meg the color, then ''struck it rich," and too* out ?*>2,000 in a few weeksl They are the only persons who have done more 1han prospect; but several parti's have obtained several dollars to the pan, in different places, and near the surface. Wm. MoComaer took from his claim en Sugar Loal Hill, last Monday a piece of quartz rock contamtbg about six ouncea of gold. Nathaniel Lepper, who last week found a lump weighing *-'6, tais weak found one weighing 439 50. The miners on 8ugar Loaf are all making excellent average wages. More News from Kern River. We have bad a conversation, saya the Califnrnian , with ? Mr. Houston, from Bern river, who arrived in town on Saturday ln?t, and who gives us the following items, whieb our readers can take for what they are worth; there is sueh a wide discrepancy in the reports that reach as, that we neither can nor will vouch for any thing hereafter pertaining to the subject. We have stayed with the "River'' as long asjwe could, and hive thus far managed to keep it in the lead, but hereafter the public can cypher the matter oat as they may feel disposed. He say a tbat there have not been twenty old miners who have left tbe mines. Of this ?lass from six tc eight hundred are oontentedly at work, and realizing from live to fifteen and twenty doll.irs p?r cay. A Urge number are at the forks of tbe river; par ties are scattered up and down tbe main stream and far up on the forks; several stores are in operation aud doing well; recently very ft>w have left; those who have here tofore crawu out are snch as could be well spared, and their room far preferable to their company. Mr Houston ?ays that any msn can make fire anl six dollars a day ?eitain. Ti is, even, is far more preferable than wor>; in the settlements at thirty and forty dollars a month. Affairs at the d'ggings are no v on a much bet. ter footing than at first. Lumber U being furnished in abundance by whip sawyers. Stores and blacksmith shops are afi'oiding abundant facilities for the supply of the necessaries of life and the requisite implement* for labor, *nd ihe recent rains and melting snows are fur bishing ample supplies of water in diggings hitherto too dry to beavailaoie Companies are being formed for the purpose of taking out the water from the river, and by ?Mans of canals carrying it into the richer localities. And as soon as the weather will permit new explora tkns will be made into the mountains, and over upon their eastern slopes. We have received by Bell's express, which arrived in town on Sunday last, t tie following Utter from a gentle ua who ha* been in the mines lor some time past; his statements are reliable: ? Kerx Rrvim, March 20, 185V Every old miner stems to be doing well, and is satis fled; and the best prool of this is, they always present well filled purses when they make purchases, and pay for ev? 77 thing they buy. In tie rush to tois place there has been a large num ber ot "lead beads" and loafers mixed up with tue crowds daily arriving, who, as soon as they enter the mines commence 1heir complaints, and express dissatis faction because the stores have adoptod the cash sys tem. These fellows will not work ? either from principle or Uzinees; it is, therefore, tolerably hard work for them to live here, and they leave, grumbling, giving a dis couraging accoun. of the mines? an) for them, very just ly, too. lor no one can live here unless he works, and is aot wanted here. Tbe mines are pronounced good by the most expe rienced mirers. Any man who is able, anl dues work, can make from four to six dollars por day. As scon as tbe snows melt and the weather will per mit, m:ntig operations will be carried bigber up in the mountains, where it Is thought much richer localities exist than those new worked, and ere long you may ex pect to lie?r reports surpassing any gone lortti through your columns. I have read nearly all yon have published in regard t thia place, and in my opinion 1 have read nothing that was counter to tbe truth; and 1, in common the arge majority of tbe m'nera here, can testify to your ?totem* n*s as to the causes of the discontent and conse quent departure of many from here. 1 never hava ae ,n ?s many lazy, worthless fellows as have congregated here within tie last few weeks. Two or three hundred of hem have been bere since I came, who have never struck a lick of work, or even left their camp one hun dred yards, unless it was to loaf arcund grog shops. How is it possible for snch fellows to make money ? I beard a miner offer a man four dulUrs a day and board him. to work at mining, which he refused, yiking more; ot the same time compUtning that the work was "too hard." 1 learn that some no-account loifcrs have been talking of mobb ?g you for publishing the truth. Their threats are sufficient to establish tbe'r true character <n tha estimation of men of sense, who lire by the labor of their ?wn hands. fiKDtmoN of Fare on- thk Nicaragua Steamers. ? Oar whole community will be rejoiced to learn that tne com Ligation to insure high prices, which has existed during the past year, between the Pacific Mail Steamship Com pas) and I'm Nicaragua Company, ha* been broken ? and that the Nicaragua Company, in compliance with the p )? polar wish, has reduced the tare from the Atlantic States to Ibis city, and back again. To Mr. Garrison is due tUe credit of tula important change, lie went to the East with the avowed intention of baring the onerous rates heretofore exacted reduced ; and by his influence with the company in New York, he has succeeded. Thus Is eae of the greatest obstacles to oar farther progress re ?loved. With cheap fare to this country, the tide of po pulation must (low nitberward, and help to develops the aJmos t untouehed resources of our Infant Sute. The Nicaragua Company bas now some of the fluest boats on tJbe oce an ? tit I'ncle Earn, which leaves on Monday next, being one of the best. 1'ne transit route is in good or der. loubtless the company will find, whilst yielding to the popular wishes and toe welfare of the State, the r owi interests will not suffer by the reduction made. ?

Valpa ha wo, March 15, 1855. A Steam line Between Panama and Valparaiso Adoo catid ? Failures of the British Line? Detention of American Hails and Merchandise ? Advantages of a Trade with Chili ? Yankee Navigation of the Bio Bio River? Stages from Valparaiso to Santiago ? Annexa tion?The Allied Pacific Squadron ? Petro^aulomki and Sebastopol ? Peeling for the Ciar ? The Immaculate Conception Furor ? The United States Ships of War. Can you not persuade, through your world-wide circu lated Hi raid, tbe esta llisbment of a line of steamers along the Pacific coast, from Panama to Valparaiso ? The last two steamers of tbe British royal mall line have Tailed to connect with the steamer from Mew k'ork to Aspln wall, notwithstanding that the railroad finished across the Isthmus makes the time of travel from New York to Panama only nine dayi. The British steamers wait at Panama until tbe morning of tbe arrival of the Ameri can mail at Aspinwall, steam off two or three hoars before its arrival at Panama, and confessedly with the intention of obliging tbe United States government to appropriate some fabulous amount of their surplus funds to the carriage of our mail bags. Our corres pondence waits on the Isthmus fifteen dtys, between steamers, so that all American merchants ? and their name is legion ? and others along the coast, receive their letters a fortnight later than they would were tbe policy of our Anglo brethren a little more liberal. Tbe Br.thh line is one of slow coaches, and occupies twenty two days in tbe voyage from Panama to this port. Any line of vessels, even our North river tugs, could do it in sixteen days, stopping at all the principal interme diate ports. This, with nine days to New York, would be but twenty-five, and with nine more to Liverpool, or ten to Paris, correspondents would receive their letters, & o., in thirty five, instendof fifty days, or not at all, the former term always occurring, and the latter sufficiently frequent to make a connection at Panama, and the regular receipt of the mails, the exception, and not the rule. As to whelher such a scheme would be profitable or not, I will give but a single item in proof of my opin ion that it would be. Tbe price of provisions all alang tbe route Is less than with you. Coal Is not high. The present price of pacsage from Panama to this port is two nundred and seventy- four dollars, and with extras, never lets than three hundred, and the accommodations cannot, in any respect, compare with any of our ocean steamers. Now that the railroad is completed, there will be much groater travel by the Panama reu'e than heretofore, and stock wouid be taken to any ex tent, and most gladly throughout Cbili, and par ticularly here, where all are disgusted with the en tire proceedings of tbe present undertakers. Throw out a hint, near Herald, in your omnipotent columns, and It It be taken, anxious and glad thoncands will thank you with cheerful gratitude. Tbe enterprise of Charles Minturn, of your city, late of California, for tbe navigation of the Bio Bio river, in this state, is progressing successfully. Anotber Ameri can enterprise worthy of mention, is the establishment of a line of four horse stages from Valparaiso to San tisgo, tbe capital, and anotber from Talcahuano to Con ception. Beieg in Santiago last week, I saw one of them come in. Hie four horses flew along the street, and as it drew up in front of the hotel, a crowd collected to talk of Yat>kee enterprise, and some of annexation. Your capital articles, by the way, on the subject of the GaUpngos Islands seem to have given the Chiieaus b<pe that tbeir time is not yet to clo-e at hand as Philo White's annexatory purposes led them to believe; and, to crown tbeir satisfaction, old Kameb*m?h? the Third sucpumbed to rum, and it was blazoned out to the world that ,4t'ror onbotontliologcs, the King, was dead," aud tbe Sandwich isles were beyond the eager grasp of the barbarian North American. Tiiey htve made up their mindB that, If be chooses to do it, the American eagle bas an omnipotent gizzard with which be cm digest any thing, even South American republics, and after rolling them over two or tbree times in bis capacious maw, turn them out good and respectable law-abiding mtl sens ? and they even go further, and are assured, upon authority, that if the aforesaid gizzard should be over worked and give out, Congress will vote him another. Great bird tb at, by Jove! The Chile journals continue tbeir daily lampooning* against our devoted country. No one dreams of replying to them. They prognosticate everything that is terrible, and the reasons assigned for our downfall are too much like Gratiano's, in the Mer chant of \ "nice, to occupy, in reply, the time or patiense of any Atrerican. The JHarin , in one of its daily casings oil, predicts an early revolution because there are 00,000 ptnpers in New York without employment Several French and British vessels of war have arrived lately, on tlielr way to Honolulu, tbere to rendezvous prior to maVing anotber abortive attack upon Petropau lowski, which they all seem to consider the Sevastopol of the Pacific H. B. M.'s steamer Brisk left yesterlay. Great excitement exist* here concerning tbe European war. The Americans seem to be In favor of our friend the Autocrat, to whom the Ch'llans compare an eagle In (light. Beti are freely oflered of five hundred dollars that Sebastopol will not betaken. One of that amount was taken at tbe club a lew days ago. Cbili has been in a fervid state of rel'giou* excitement during some days past, owing to the I'ap il decision of the immaculate conception, and the clergv, wbo have so much, too much influence in state affiirs, are only awaitirg tbe arrival of the papal bull to show tbe w.irld of lookers on In Vienna their intense appreciation, and tbeir over boiling satisfaction at learning bsyond all sub lunary donbt, tbe finless condition of their virgin pat roness. Bonfires and rockets, theattes and processions, gun firing and flag flying will be tbe order of tbe day when the important docuaaent is published to the wjrld. We have but one vessel of war in port now, the Inde pendence, Commodore Merwin's flag ship, Captain Tat nail, con rounding. The commodore gives a ball on board this evening, aad will leave la a day or two for Talcahuano. X. Y. Z. N?w York Paltkhs Fcknished with Frm Pahpag* to Ai.hast.? It in but a few we?k* lino there iu a great excitement rained in New York because the Sardinian povernmint had Rent a ship load of pauper i to New York ? pawege free? where tliejr became AmHMI te the Commissioner* of Emigration and the New York lociil uuthoritie*.

I hardly need say that I was about as much astonish*! aa if a thunder-clip had struck me, and I tell entirely unprs.ared to answer it at I onw in a manner beatting the great and glorious h ime. As I ve concluded to haul up here for the uight, I've taken my pen and ink out of til? Jocter, and ft & ?o also 1 taken my seat on my chest? my blue s?*-che*t I m?n? to reply to your inquiries, and to give jou a few of the sentiments that weigh so heavily upon my stom ich I must confess that I am not much of a scholar myself, but my cook is pretty good at reading, aod I have the benedt ot bis i dvice and assistance I'm one of tbe people, and my heart is where it ought to no, un ier this cough old oil-skin, and there when duty calls you'll always Undit. I have noiLIng to keep bac*, and 1 am ready to show hands with any man in the country. "You know an all gents," I might say in the touching language of l'a tries lUnry to Napoleon Honaparte? You know me all, and it is hardly necessary tor me to observe that I wn raised in these parts, and tu\t I grew up among tae vir tues and vegetables of your iatoers. In my early years, ere sin could blight, I was placid oa the dec* of a canal boat, and ever since I have followed the vocation t j which I wa" called by an indulgent parent, and have lived for the most part on tlits sheet of water, miking my home, as it were, -in the trough of the sea." This life bus most assurodly extended my sphere of obser vation and sharpened my wit*. There is a good deal to pee betwixt here and Albany, and a got d deal to learn in ireifhting porn and on ons, together with members of tnngrefs and some missionaries. My frequent dealings too, with the New \ork merchants, However much they rosy have been calculated to strain my morals, htve fenced to give me broader and higher v.ews or hum in nature. Yes, 1 Dave enjoyed privileges in my che quered existence, snd I nave been enabled by the bless ings of 1 rovidence and some fortunate speculations in butter aid cheese, to lay up a trille against a windy day, and to erect lor my affeciiooaU wife anl beljved children a family resin. nee, whi:h, I am proud to say, stands twenty by thirty on my own land, aad combines unt er its hospitable roof all the modern improvements inducing a wash boiler and pump in the kitchen. Still! gentlemen, nit withstanding all these advantages an?f my position m society, 1 had no dreams or political am bit on. It never occurred to me until I received your ?,'V ha<1 til0?a peculiar qua iilcatioas eminently uttiDg me to graco the capitol and adorn the constitu tion. But it bas been impossible for me to conceal my "V f'?? J?nr ptnetratiug eyee. Yon have found me soliciting the honor of using my nuns on the ticket for President, jou ask for my views on the va lious questions of the day. Now, it is useless for me to attempt to state all my opinion, in full. I know they would bs eagerly read' but with my eareful way oi writing? slow and sure ,,rok!" ***ry, and up strokes light, I shouldn't get through tbem in a week. Besides, there would -?.1*? * r00?. in tljf? canal boat to express my.feolingi Mil g **ay l""kheads, and, moreover, if ' * . tb* Mmo to y>?, gents, 1 prefer not to commit mjseit by sny nnguaroed words.

Wkdxwday, May 2? 6 P.M. The changei in the stock market to day are hardly worth noticing, and there appear* to be a datly decrease in transactions. gome of the leading railroad stocks fell off today about one-eighth percent. The broken complain very much of the dulness of business, and cannot satisfactorily account for the limited operations during the existence of suck a plethora in the money market. The contraction on the part of the banks is attri bated partially to the scarcity of the right kind of paper. Purchasers of stocks are waiting for later news from Eu rope and California. They are always waiting for some thing, and appear to bare a mania for coming in at the highest point of thCtarket, instead of taking hold and going up with prices. It is out of luch speculators that the brokers make tliair harvests. Holders of stocks are not dif posed to pnt their supplies upon the market They can afford, and hare the disposition to hold, feel ing confident that the chanee for coming in at lower prices is too poor to take the risk. It is within about sixty days of dividend day for tome of them, and as the rate is likely to be considerably larger than usual, as investment* they will pay well. The future Is so full of encourage stent that it would te advisable to hold on, at even moderate sa crifices. There was no marked movement to day in any stock. A few small lota of each class were sold at pricts current at the close yesterday. The Stonlngton Railroad Company has passed its May dividend.

Anthracite if now retailed at $0 60 per ton That there will be a farther redaction in price* as the season advances, there is very little doubt. All the work* for transporting this material to market are operated to the utmost extent of their facilities, and the number of men At work in the mining districts never was greater. Labor is abundant. There is more offer log than can find employment, and there is, therefore, no danger of strikes. It will be many years before we shall again have any interruption in our coal tra-le from that eause. The cheaper coal is, the greater the consumption. It therefore benefits the eonsamer, the carrier, the dealer, the miner, and we are under the im pression that it even benefits the owner of coal lands. It Is well known that the pri;e of eoal was only save! from a heavy d* cHne the past year by a pretty general suspension of mining operations for a period or four to six weeks, commencing in October; and notwithstanding this suspension, which was not voluntary, but forced, as the market woald not take the eoal, prices declined, and ooal was a drug in New York the latter part of last season. More - over, nothing but the length and severity of tfie past winter prevented a considerable overstock in the Now York and New England markets, and in Boston the stocks were so heavy, and the demand for consumption so far short of what was anticipate J, that prices fef. during the winter, instead of advancing, as usual. Now, if In such a year of general prosperity as the past, nothing but an absolute refusal to purchase, and a eon sequent inability to continue mining, prevented a great fall in the price of eoal, as was certainly the case, what can be aeeessaiy but that dealer and eonsamer should apply the same remedy voluntarily and early, in order to prevent continual advanoe* in prise, and the same humbug and excitement which we have described as ex sling the past year? Let every dealer and every eonsamer, great and small, buy during the months of May, June and July so much as is needed for present wants, and no more, and they will still have five months . smalnisg in which to accumulate a winter stock. They w>U regulate prices, as they might have done last year; they will have abundant time to lay in a sufficient quan tity to carry them through until the spring opens, and if they should be obliged to pay even a heavy advanse in price late in the year, yet the average cost of their stock will not be near so great as It would be under a regular month ly nd vance In prioe; end farther, they will bo protested from a decline in prioe oocarring after they have accu mulated a heavy stoek, which is always disastrous to dealers in this article. 1 here tan be no question that sufficient coal can bo mintd and sent to market this year fully to supply the wants of our neople. No season, not excepting the last, ever pastes without two or three Booths of a decreased demand ud price; H U for denier* and soma men to ?? whether this dull period shall ocour early, so m to check an ad ranee in price, or late, after they .v.n bare taken in their anppllM, and when of coarse every decline is to their disadvantage. < repeat, that pureha*. en of eoal have the oontrol and i egulatlon of prieee i? their own band*, and that nothing la needed bat ftrm neei on their part aod a determination not to be hnm bugged ; and moreever, that they ahoall oat be iadoa* e<i to buy more than they aetually need for pneent aaes, by the idea that one advance moat n??e? arily be followed by another, bnt let then delay large purchase! ontil it is absolutely necessary to make them, and they will find that they hold in their hands * power which they have hlther'o little suspected. There ar# al* nady indications of a resolution among produoen of coal to play last year's game over again if they can, hat it ia hoped that tbe good sense of the community will frustrate their designs. It is utterly absurd that an ar ticle which can be mined and carried to Philadelphia for shipment, under present rates of labor and tolls at a cost not exceeding on an average $3 60 per ton, to New England, should oommand nearly a dollar higher, when every one knews that one-fourth of that difference will pay the prodncar a pro* fit sufficient to afford an exceedingly handsome return for the capital invested. The production of ooal ? an anomaly in the business of this oountiy. No other article, of anything like its value in the aggregate, i M produced within so small a surface, and by so small a number; and this fact, while it makes association and a good understanding among producers ea tj aod exceed ingly profitable, makes it alio necessary that those upon whom they depend for means to carry on their opera* tions should un Sent and and be prepared to counteracts any attempts at imposition. There are no saeans by which this can be ? fleeted exoept those iadieated above, and to the use of these we noommend every purchases of the article. there is another feature of thla trade whictf is very re* markable. Certain large incorporated mining companies an in the habit of opening their books and taking large or den for coal, to be delivered during the season at * price to be fixed by the sellers shortly before delivirie* commence. Now this is doubtless a very convenient and profitable operation for tbe sellers, and no blame at taches to them for managing their business in their own way, but it Is, after all, only another branch ef the humbug before alluded to. It is perfectly astonishing that any purchaser should submit to be so whipped ia to buying blindfold. It becomes a cause of still greater astonishment when it is known that a majority of these blind purchases are made by large steamboat and man ufacturing concerns, managed by gentlemen who have the highest reputation in the community for shrewdness and business tact. There 1s one matter whieh, though universally understood among the coal trade, ia not well considered by tbe community generally. Coal cannot be piled in large quantities without heavy expense, and, for this and other reasons, it is necessary for producers to find a market as fast, or nearly as fast, as the article is produced, and this is one gnat inducement for them to secure orders for dellv ry through the season. When the price is a fair and moderate one, then is no reason why such orders should not be given; but it is perfectly plain that one month's suspension of all orden for ship ment muBt either reduce price or stop production; the latter alternative is not very probable, when the profits are so gnat. If consumen and dealers will throw away the advastages of their position, so be it, bnt we again repeat that the regulation of prices is in their own hands* S toe Ik Exchange.
