Commercial Aftws, itc*} tCc. ?*nce my laut to you, trade has continued aoraewhut d?B and quiet in all its departments; yesterday the job ker* seemed to be a little brisker than usual, and some fcrge sales look place. The fact is, politics are o.ngross tog the attention of the entire community, aud it is thought that 1ho coming election will be the most exclt tog that we have ever hail in California. Colonel J. Ncely Johnson, of Sacramento city, the Inow Notl ing nominee for (Jovernor, is a member of the bar of that city, a very youug man, energetic and ac complished. and ranks among the best lawyers of the Mate. He was flrBt appointed Census Agent of the Pro vince of California by General Taylor. In 1853 he was elected a member of the Assembly, to represent the eonnty of Saci aniento, where he somewhat distinguished Mm??-lf by voting tor the indefinite postponement of a >10 for the prohibition of the settlers upon the public lands, and for the improvement of the 1 We lands of the State. He has a very lucrative practice hi Sacramento city, aud an unsullied reputation in pub ?a and private life, lie is only about 37 years of ago. It ?ay not be uninteresting to know that he married, some tw6 years since, the beautiful and accomplished 'laugh ter cf Colonel J. C. Zabriskie, formerly of New Jersey, by j whom he has two very interesting cliildren. Of the Know nothing ticket, the Keening JVckm of this city thus speaks: "It is composed of men of known ability and standing, and will undoubtedly receive the support of a large majority of the Americans in California. The nomi nees are mos'ly young men ? uionof energy, and fully im bued with the practical democratic spirit of the times, 'fhey are neither worshippers of precedent nor I topiau d (earners, but men ol to-day, acquainted with tho wants ?f the Slate aud ready to meet them, cognizant ot the abuses that have lieen practised and eager for reform. On the other litind. the Bigleiites are "cock sure' of the election of ' honest John," as they call him; but the weighty question will have been decided before my next ?ommunication reaches you. ami 1 will await that time More I trouble your readers with any more politics. last week, having some business in the county ol u lover as, 1 inlormed myself of sonic most interesiing ?lining operations, which 1 now send you, proving satis fcetorilv the increasing and continued richness of the ?old flxlds of this county.

On tuc CWeveiitas, nil those companies who have water are doing ??narkablv well, making from VI to $9 a day. At San Antonio the miners aie uioie nuuerou* than at any time nnee '60. The old creek claims are being worked over ftir the fourth time, and paying fair wagos. Thorn ft Co. s alaim pays from 8 to 20 ounces j.cr da v.

They were immediately taken into custody, and subse quently executed. It Is reported tliat two packers were inurdeied by the Indians near Applegate creek, while on their way to Yeeku. The chief of the ltogue river Indians declares that he will ltave vengeance for the hanging of iwo ol his tribe; and it is anticipated tliat there will be u general attack very soon. In that event there will not be an Iudiau left alive In the vicinity of Yreka. The following is a copy of a letter written by Kev. B. B. Stratton, on the 30th July, from Yreka: ? Ybkka, July 30, 1855. Though* stranger, I take the liberty of saying to you th?t tltc Indian difficulties announced in the Kxtra Union of Saturday, arc growing more serious every moment. I write to you, thinking I will thus be more certain to ap prise s >me friends whom I expect to be at Shasta in a tew dnys, >n route, for this plaoe. To-day, two Indians were hung here; they were caught last evening near Yreka, with aims and ammunition, and identified as being con nected with the hostile tribe One of them was an elderly man, obviously of a stern experience, us he was thoroughly scarred. Four more arc to be hung this evening, on Humbug creek. No further reports from Klamath, (the plnce where the first depredations were ma'le,) except that Indians are still prowling about in that region. Posters have been sent, to all*] aits of Fcott and Shasta Valloys, that isolated fa milies may gather to some defensible position. The ex citement Is intense, and likely to continue. The young er of the two Indians hung to-day assorted just before he sw ung, that the Kouge lUvcr Indians, and many others, had combined to pursue a war of extermination upon the whites; and that they had vowed never to euter Into a treaty again. Whatever credit may be given to Ills Words, tlicy will not tend to any abatement of the present excitement. He further statod that they had determined the utter destruction of this town. Stealing squaws, and selling the Indiuns rum und arms, will yet prove dear trutlic to the Inuocuut (?) whites. B. B. STRATTON. The Excitement In Amador Comity. NINE OP TI1K DESPERADOES LYNCHED ?

A corres] ondent of the Sti'fr Journal writing from So nora, under eato of Aug. 13, gives the following particu lars of the murder of the i-lierlg of Amador county. SOKOBA, August 13 ? 1 A. M. Mr. Mitrnlx, Sheriff of Amador county, has just been brought into town, dead ? having been shot through the heart by a Mexican ill El Salvado, a small ramp about a mile from Chinese ("amp, in Tuolumne county. We bnve also just received a letter from Sheriff Hark, giviig the particulars of the melancholy affair. It ap pears that the Mexicans were followed through this county into Tuolumne, at a place known as Old Chinese ('?rnp, where the officers orrlved about noon on Saturday ? took posses? ion of the camp, and arretted e\ery Mexi can for examination ? but Americans who live there, de clare that they (the Mexican.-) were all resident* of the camp, and were not away from It at the time of the I lan cl eila tragedy. The letter adds. ?' that a more villa nens looking set were never seen." A division ol the officers was made here ? some of them oing over to an adobe house, the lialauce remaining to eep strict guard over the camp. A Mexican, who rode into town as the party was leav ing, was arrested and requested to be taken across a gulch to obtain proof of good character; and whilst the officers were doing this, several shots v. ere heard In the rimp.

Auo tl er scuttle occurred, and Oaue again tired, but without eieet. She then tied into the house, Crane fdlowing, nd an ?lie entered the door, he tired a third shot, the ball striking the back of her head, and penetrating the biain to an extent an jet unascertained, causing (he lady to bill senseless to the door. During a part of the time coneumed in the enactment of thetrafpdy, Mrs. Newn l.am, then the only third person in the house, assailed ( i*i.e with a stick, but bo kept her off by presenting his pistol to her breast. Mrs. N. then hastened to the nearest neighbor, Mr. Stainer. 1 hat gentleman arrived in about fifteen mi nutes, and found Craine standing over the lady, still lying on the tioor, battling ber head with water. The t wo then lilted Miss N. up and |daced her ou the bed, after which Craine continued to bathe ber head, speak ing to her and of her in the most endearing manner, (.mine informed Stainer that he was going away to do some writing, and would return in about half an hour. While in the bouse, it is stated that Craine made a de monstration, either to kill himsslf or finish the work of uiu:der with a knife, and that the lady, having recovered her hunn H, told liim not to kill her, and not to kill him sell, and that she would yet live to be Uis companion in thin world arid the world to come. Bat we have not had sufficient evidence of this to publish it as a tact. About fifteen minutes after the arrival of Mr. Stainur, Mr. Brock, son-in-law oi ?.?wnliam,- appeared at the gate with a louded rifle, which be liad provided himself with on beating of tbe tragedy, tor the purpose of shooting Craine. 'the latter, however, presented bis pistol, ai*i declared to Br< ck be would shoot htm it he did not put down his gun, or if he attempted to enter. Craine hav ing a bowie knife and revolver, and Mr. Brock only one shot for him, the latter declined going into the house. Craine then made bis escape through u back door, and tied to tbe bills. Craine maintains that he went out at the front dour. Craine escape 1, but the country was scoured, and be was afterwards arrested. The ctowd proceeded to try him, and having found him guilty, were proceeding to execute him, when .-her iff Buel arrived, rescued hiui and lodgt d him in jail. There is but u bare possibility of the recovery of the lady. The following is ? J. Y. CKAINK8 CONFJibSION. Two weeks ago 1 conceived the idea of killing .Susan. Disgraceful reports that bad been circulated was the cause ; did not know who started them ; heard it was Susan's father, but found out afterwards it was not. Susan first fanned an attachment for him fifteen or eighteen months ago, and then it became reciprocal ; he always thought a gi eat deal of her. About a year ago they had beeu murried ; they had signed a marriage contract, and (>od Almighty had married tlicm. Another person was a suitor lor her baud, and her purents fa vored him. This was the cause of all the difficulty. He has u wife, or has bad, iu tbe Atlantic States, and ibis was the reason he could not marry Susan, according to law. More than a year ugo ho had anonymous letters, which he believes are true, stating that his wife in the Kast had married again. He bad told Susan tliat hi' would kill ber and himself, and that they would livo to f c-lher in the next world; hut she did not think I would ill her then: 1 bail a pistol to commit the deed with. [After wounding Susan, the pistol would not revolvu. and be could not kill himself, and threw it away ; a knife was rejected because it was rusty ; and feeling sure of a rope, he returned to meet his fate.] Nolnidy knew I in tended to commit the crime. Susan and 1 will be happy in the next world. I am over thirty years of age, uud have four children near Lexington, Payette Co., Ky.. named Mclissb, Campbell, Jeremiah and Frank. John, the fifth, is dead. I think Andrew Jackson Davis' work tbe greatest in the world. As persons may be curious to learn the mode in which tbe marriage ceremony above alluded to was conducted wo copy the following statement of Miss Newnham : ? About < ne year ago Mr. J. V. Craine commenced pay ing attention to uie. 'there was no engagement between us ? xcept the oath hero tiled as follows: ? " I now declaie before high heaven, and call God to witness, that I never will marry any one but you ? not if all the world is against you. I am yours in life ami death, and it shall be the business of my life to obey you in all things, and to do all in my power to make you happy, i-o help me Uod. SUSAN M. NEWNHAM. " This is from tbe bottom of my heart." She stated further, that she had a paper of a similar cliai actor from Craine, an l that about eight months ago (mine snutcbed the paper binding him from her, and toie it all to pieces in her presence. Shu then asked him for her's, which is above mentioned, and he refused to give it up at that time, but did give it to her about two or three months ugo. She also stated that Crulne did not force her to sign tbe oath, but just worried her out of it. About one week ago Craine threatened to kill her, William and himself. No one was connected with Ctuite in the crime to her knowledge, llcr mother knew of tbe engagement, but did not know anything of the oath, as she termed the paper. Eirtatlon of Kacobur and Hcbndo at Bonaiw. M'c lake the following account of the execution of the above named culprits at ISonora, from the Union Itcmo cral:? In accordancc with the pentencc previously prononcod, these two men were launched into cteruily together ami fioni the same scallolil. They were escorted from the jail to the gallows, in the vicinity of the city, under the i!' rectiou of , -he: ill Solomon, a minted bv tlie Sonora Greys, J.ii ut. Fvaus and tlie Columbia Fu*ilicm.

Mr. 1'almer, (the jailor) who acted m interpre ter, auU Mr. James U'Sullivan. Tlie sheriff then read the death-warrant, and, upon asking the prisoners it they hid anything to hit, Scbodo rose up and remarked in substance at follows : ? He asked if those who under stood Spanii li were willing to listen to him, and upon e cihing iheir consent he went on to state that he was not guilt} ? that the murderer of Sheldon was Jose Gomez, (his rem [anion at the time the deed was committed) ? tliat eaily cn the fatal morning he and Gomez were pro ceeding up Washington street, on their way to Pragoon (itilcli ; they were met by Sheldon who presented a pistol at the hieast of Sebado? he jerked it from hi< hand. At this time Gomes thrust a knite In Sheldon, and saying to Scbado lie had killed him, they both Med to Tuttlctown. There, he said, he was arrested, while Gomez was suiter ed to escape. lie said if he had beeu an Amciican he would not have been molested, and he advised all Span lards wlienevei they met a man with a white skin and fair hair to put a knife into him, up to the Uilt. He complained much of injustice, and said he hud not had a fair trial? that Sheldon was a bad man and had killed a ( hileno at lfoldcn's saloon ? hut he would now show the people how a Chili no could die. He insisted upon ha\ iug n wi mun btOVgfet upon the scaffold to play the harp for him to dance his way out of the world, otherwise lie would die unhappy. In tnnclu-inn, he said if any one present desired to send woid or money to their friends wiiete he whs going, lie was just fhetnan to take it. fjuite the reverse of this levity appeared the conduct of Ffcohur, for whose late there has bean much swnpaihy, and for whoso pardon earnest efforts had lieen uiide. lie raid he felt forcibly the humiliating position to which rashness could bring a man; he confessed that he had killed the deaf and dumb nun, aa 1 regretted it ? advising hi-* friends not to follow the a hico of Seb:id<>, as they hoped to avoid the same ignominious end. lie called oil (?oil to witness tliat he had l*< u hon?'-t and Industrious, and that tl.b was his first offence.

Josetihi it Co. According to Gunter's testimony before the Mayor y i terilay lie bad been uttered by Bey a salary of ftfl.OOO a year for his services, being an adept in the process of counterfeiting gold duat. He became acqualnte 1 with the parties accused In October lust, and Bey offered to take litm in partnership. He refused, however, giving an his reason that he thought the business would not holl out as it must be discovered sooner or later. Boy replied tliat he had made ari angement* with an express office, which guaranteed to take all he could supply; that It was a perfectly sate operation, as the express company were in the daily re?dpt of from two to five hundred ounces of genuine dust, and the spurious ariiclo could be easily worked in without fear ol detection. Qunter having i elused to connect himself with the speculation. Bey and his partner employed others, and commenced ( Derations in a basement on Washington street, under Montgomery Block, (iunter saw them at work in this place. Subsequently, in passing the cellar, lje t'ouud t bat operations had t>?en suspended, and was informed ly Bey that the nusiness would uot pay.

Boy again offered to employ Gunter at exorbitant wafres, but the latter refused. The business win then being carried on in the basement of a jewelry establish ment on Dupont street, in a brlek house. It appears that the proprietor of the jewtlry store was not aware of the character of Bey k Co.'s operations. Subsequently, the counterfeiting was carried on in an e-itaMlshineut on Broadway, which was admirably suited to the business, (iunter frequently visited this pla -e, and found them at work in the manufacture oi the counterfeit dust. Final ly ho quarrelled with Bey about some tools which he h:id loaned him, und this resulted in tiunter's becoming an instrument against Bey to Co. He did not inform the po lice of his knowledge in the matter until Wednesday last, when Captain McDonald was about springing the trap he bad laid for the detection of the accused. Bey and his partner were fully committed for trial before the Court of Sessions.

Depot-tare of I. C. Woods for Australia. [From the San Francisco Herald, Aug. 12.1 It transpired yesterday that Mr. I. C. Woods "left in the ship Audubon, Capt.

The consideration which I entertain fur the numerous creditors of the late firm of Adams & Co., induces me to make the nnnounoement which is the subject of this communication. The recent decision of the Supremo CoUit of this State having frurtt ated my earnest ef forts towards an equitable division of th? remaining assets of the tiim among its creditors, by declaring my proceedings in insolvency null and void, and thus appropriating to the satisfaction of a few demands the entire funds* which I had hoped to bo able to distribute for the common benefit, nothing remained that could render my further continuance in San Francisco useful to others or desirable to myself I therefore determined at once to take my departure for the Atlantic States on one of the line of steamers, in the hope that I might ho able to effect some arrangement for the payment of our pro tested exchange in New York; there being at the tiroo of our failnie a large amount of assets provided for that purpose in the hands of our agents In that city. This determination, however, was thwarted by various devices on the part of certain individuals who claimed to represent one of my partners, and who ulso, by an Inge nious union of apparently conflicting duties, at the same time represented the very agents who had dishonored our bills. The object of their pertinacious opposition to any plan by which I could personally communicate with mv partners and effectually disclose to them the real end and aim of the proceeding* of their ooufiden tial agent here, is too apparent to require explanation. Since the financial wreck of February last, in which I shared the fate of many others who were engaged in the >sme line of business, and who arc now in the same con dition of insolvency, 1 have remained here ready to re [ spend to uny charge that might be made the subject of a legal prosecution against me, with one exception. Ihnt of the so-called gold dust conspiracy, the result of which Is matter of public notoriety. I have Ireon subjected only to those proceedings which are' ordina | rily adopted to cntorcc the payment of (recuniary de mands. My object in visiting the Fastern States, is to be ser vl-euble if I caa (us I certainly cannot be here) to the creditors of our late firm, of whom the principal are willing that I should in this respect consult my own judgment. I have, therefore, temporally left this State for New York, at which place I hope to arrive at no very distaut day. 1 trust I shall then be uble to accorapf'ali s une useful results, of which, should my present expectations be full lied, the parti' s iuteiested whether as friends or foes, will not H to heir.

At the cute of the letter, Sander* wus still at liberty, although it van thought that an attempt would be made to piocure his arrest by parlies In Paris, who claimed to have been i-windled in btiidno** transaction* with him. It appears that when Sanders escaped from the Sandwich Islands in the Klvlra Harbeck. he proceeded directly to Hong-Kong, where he wan fortunate in finding a RritUh steamer juat ready to depart. Ills subsequent movementa wcic evidently attended with but little delay, as hi* pretence in Pari* was noticed some day* earlier than the date of the letter &Uu<!ed to. Later from the Rnialan Settlements. THE STARVATION PTOBIE8 CONTRADICTED Die Sitka Ice Company'! eliip Zenobia, (apt.

This island is one of a group belonging to the Russian-American Company, lying in latitude 57 d?g. 48 niiu. north, longitude 1 f?J dog. 15 mln. west, and distant about six hundred miles trom Sitka. Between there islands and Silka there Is frequent communication, and in the event of a scarcity of prov is ions in either set tliment there would be no difficulty in obtaining supplies, ('apt. Ealing states that there is no foundation whatever for the report* which have recently leached here, to the effect that the settlements were In want of provisions. Dur irg his stay at St. Paul'* his vessel was supplied ilally with fresh meat, vegetables, fi^h. eggs, butter, milk, and in fact eveiy necessary article of food. Tlie harbor of St Paul's is the principal place of importance in thin re gion, as it is beie that the Russian-American Company have their depot. The settleirent contains about tour bundled inhabitants ? Russians- in the employ < if the company. Through an agency established at St. Peters burg, the company contract for the senders of a certain ni-mher of men, who aie bound to lOrve for a specified teim of years, at the expiration of which term tiiey are :ent back to St. Petersburg.

They were taken from the building in an almost hfelese condition, and in a few minute* after expired. Two Frenchmen occupied sleep ing a|artmeuts in the second story, but it la thought that they escaped. The great distance of the Hre from the public cistern* cau.-cd seme delay in getting water on the Humes.

Snn Fianritro Hrrald, Aug. 5. f^LT Min t> in Low Kit Calivobku. ? The schooner Hono lulu arrived on Wednesday, from 1'oint San Qaentin, Lower California, with a cargo of rock salt, taken trom the beds in Lower California ' situated about five miles In the inlet ior, west frr m int ^ an Quentin. The bed, or lake, an it is termed, from which the cargo of the Hono lulu wan procured extends over an area of about one mile in length, by three-quarters of a mile in width. Its depth averages aliout four inches, solid crystal salt. Adjacen'. to this bed is another oi much greater dimensions, and It is estimated by our informant, that, at the centre of thin deposit, the >alt lies at full sixteen feet in depth. A specimen of the Halt in its original state was analy aed y esterday by a ch< mist of thi* city, and the result proved it to be pure muriate of soda, or common salt of tho best quality. The chiystals are beautitully formed and easy of solution* Iho existence ol these beds lias been known for xnauy years, but it appears that no attempt had bean made to profit by 1h? knowledge until a firm of this city onder .ook the enterprise. As is in most new enterprises, the commencement has been attended by a considerable out lay of capital, which, however, will soon afford a hand si me return, as the supply of salt Is inexhaustible. The distance of the beds from the Bay of San (juentin render* it necessary to employ a large number of animals for tlit? tianspertation of the salt; and as the Muntry in that vicinity Is entirely destitute of vegetables, the cost ef maintaining animals is a large consideration. The com pany have established a depot at Han (juentin, where the salt is stored, ready for shipment upon the arrival of the vessels employed for its transportation to tills port. The company have obtained a giant of a large tract of lan 1, and have employed a competent persou to explore the district within which the grant is embraced, with the view of obtaining a full knowledge of the country. The cargo of the Honolulu consists of about one hundred and fifty tons of salt, worth lu this port at least thirty dollars per ton. ? Sun franc iiteo J /grain, Aug. 3. Theatrical*.
