The two democratic nominations for the Presidency ' sctfuse our politicians considerably. Most of the federwt < ffioc holders go for Breckinridge, but from present appearances, tbe masses of the people Ihvor Douglas. Sot. Downey spoke at a Douglas meeting In Sacramento last Tuesday evening, and gave In his adhesion to that party: tbe Judges of the Supreme Oourt and a majority of the Mate others are also for Douglas. A meeting of the Democratic State convention Is railed for the 30th Inst., a hen A Is expected some plan will be broached to concentrate the vote of the party on one of the democratic candidates. Meantime the preet has taken sides?tbe great majority going for Douglas. The Morning Call, In an article discussing the prospects In this State of the several candidates, has the following observations which may be considered nearly correct:?But there are other reasons why Douglas will, In California, draw greatly from the floating vota of the Stats, and taper tally from that which the seeeders' ticket would I procure had they nominated another candidate then Breck-.nrldgo. Douglas stands eminently clear on the recird In regard to the Pacific Railroad and all other measures of Importance to California, whi>*t Breckinridge wae to successful and persistent in hft opposition to a Pacific Railroad, that in 1865 his vote actually killed tbe measure after It bad been pesecd. A reconsideration was moved. and the measure was lost by one vote, that one vote being cast by Breckinridge. Of course such s candidate. In opposition to the progrssslvs Douglas, will run with weights to his feet In this Mate, and we therefore give Douglas tew thousand mors votes.

Mr. Lonia Scholl, guide to Oapt. Smith's command, bad j arrived at the Italles, bringing the exciting newe that the command had been attacked by a band of Snake Indiane. From letters received by officers at Fort Dulles barracks we giran the follow ing particulars of the fight and subsequent occurrences:? On Saturday, June 38, Capt. Smith's party were attacked by from sixty to eighty mounted Snake Indians, and 160 or IdO on fbot, armed with guns, bows end arrows. They bad followed Oapt. Smith's party for two or three days previously, and made the attack Just as be wis going into camp. Ihey came up boldly and attempted to drive off the animal* but failing in this, commenced the fight, led by a young Indian, who was killed the first Ore. Captain Smith's company engaged the Indiana very warmly, and obliged them to retreat to the moan tains, with a severe iocs of life to the Indians, and the capture of six animals and saddles, three guns and numerous other article*. They left on the field one Indian sad borne; a chief apparently, for he fired the first shot, and was the most active and bold In the affair. One of the ; captured animals was recognized as stolen from Major ; Reynolds' battery last Bummer. Several of the Indians : were, seen to fall, and they kept up a terrible mourning , all the afternoon, indicating that they suffered severely. Not a man or animal of Captain Smith's oompany received e scratch in the fight, which lasted only three quarters of , en hour. This ail occurred about eighteen miles from ; Owyhee river. Ohpum Smith Is now In the vicinity of Harney lake, j awaiting the arrival of Major Steen's party, who ore on : their way to join him, when probably they will move to- ; gcthcr in pnrsott of the Indians, ana in further prooecu- | ticn of their explorations. tr- Gold, in considerablei quantities, had been found on tbi tributaries of the Des Chutes. rxox vienwu, v. i. ?

Resolutions were . passed declaring the Indians capable of civilization, and that their preeer.ee entailed a heavy reapooslbUlty upon I the Ch 1stian public, whaae duty U was to Impart to the savages the Gospel of Christ. The sum of $322 was collected for the relief of the Izdlins. Pays the Victoria GaztU ?'Wc have at last correct accounts of the Indian murders that have been floating round for the pax I week, and it appears now that fourteen lives have been aecrthced In avenging and revenging the death of the Fort llupe*t chief, killed by the aubjecta of IVlDce Freezy, some ten days ago.

A f w days after the Cowltcban tribe surprised some Kltahrnaht indians, and killed eight meu and carried two women off Into slavery.

Bo mail baa been received here l>om Bogota since the date of my tact advices. Both the Atlantic and l'aciflc coaets are la tie poeaeuiiou of the revolutioniata, and consequently all regular communication with the capital is cut off. By private letters, however, from Bogota, received via Carthagena in sailing vessels, advices to the 27th Jane have been received. On the 25th, President Ospina issued a proclamation amounting to a dcclarot'on of war against the revolted states, and Lisa taken command of the second division of the federal army. Tn this, it is said, he has disregarded a plain provision of the oocstttutlou, forbidding the executive from taking command of the army in person. The State of Cundinamarca, or at least portions of it, ore reported to have revolted against the general government, and the States of Bolivar and Magdalcna have decided to send troupe to the aid of the revolutionists in that quarter. A Balling vessel from Buenaventura, with dates to the 20th July, arrived hero on the 30th. The news from I Cauca la Important. The State of Antioqula, which still adheres to the Confederation, having declared war against Cauca, Gen. Motquera, in return, has declared war against that State, and In his proclamation he calls upon all the other States to aid him In protecting tbo constitution. He states that he has 6,COO Infantry under arms, 1,000 cavalry, and sufficient arms and amunltlon to enable him to carry out his purposes. Gen. Ob in Jo continues In command of the revolutionary forces In Oanra, while General Mosqucra remains at the bead of the executive department. He has ordered the , seizure of all tho qntna bark In the country belonging to native merchants, which means, I suppose, that which txlgnga to his political enemies. It is supposed that It is bis intention to ship it to Ckllao, sell It and Invest the proceeds in tbo purchase of a vessel of-war?he i having despatched, It Is said,an agent to that port for the purpose of procuring a suitable vessel to protect the coast of Cauca. Meantime, Mosqucra was preparing to march against Antloqula, where some federal troops are stationed and an engagement has probably taken place by this time. Should Mosqucra and Obando be victorious, they will doubtless at once march against Bogota; but, should they bs defeated, the revolution may be considered at an end. Mosqucra has declined the nomination of the liberal party for the I "residency, and doc lares that he has no aspirations for that ottlce, ko. The Granadian schoonerof war Clio, fitted out by the Intendento General of this state, bad arrived at the port of ltsraaco and taken the place. &o remained off the port some twenty-lour boors, and thns gave time to tbo revolutionary authorities to leave the place. They all loft exaept the collector of customs, who was seized and sent a p-lsoner to this place, shore bo new is in close confinement. The Administrator General of the titate of Ganca, under the federal government, has issued a decree, <latod at "asto. in the interior, declaring all the ports si Cauca slaved against foreign commerce. Copies ot the decree lave been sent to all the Oonsuls at this port by the In- < endento. Tbo object of the decree is to preveot the , fiosquera parly frosa collecting da ties; but, as it la a nere paper blockade, the federal authorities will proba- c ily not be able to enforce it. large quantities of An* ri- 1 an merchandise for Buenaventura are detained hero < n consequence of this decree, and tho refusal if the authorities of the port to grant clcaraneas to ves- 1 lels wishing to sail for any of the ports In Cauca.

[ Dr toilful Dtalht by Drowning?Two Laditi Ketcutd from DtatK?Heroic Omduct of a Canadian?Adcict to Hotel Proprietor*, <fc., iCc. Enclosed I forward you an account of a allocking accident which occurred here this morning. I shall endeavor to forward It by private hand, aa uo mail leave* here before Monday morning. On Saturday morning about ten o'clock, two gentlemen, the Rev. Or. WbiUaker, pastor of a Methodist churob in Trenton, H. J., and Dr. Downer, of Jersey City, went In bathing almost opposite the Metropolitan Hotel, in company with two ladies U appears that the place where they entered la not considered safe, on account of what fishermen call a "sea pass," i.e., a rush of water betwoen two sand hills. It seems the ladles aud Dr. Whittaker lost their footing immediately and were swopt into dorp water. Dr. D., who wnsan excellent swimmer, succeeded in geting the ladies Into a place of safety, but, unhappily, tvsww uto Dtiru^iu nuu wniv <1VWU. IUC grc?M*?l WQIIIDIUD prevailed along tho beach, and several mmulog claimed before a boat was launched and oae of tho bodies taken out. In the meantime a young Canadian gentleman, Mr. Ardagb, stopping at the Alleghany House, who was bathing about two huntred yards to the south o! where the accident occorrod, ran np and plunged In for tho rescue of tho other gentleman. With much difficulty be succeeded In reaching him, and, seizing him by the collar of the shirt, be endeavored to drag him to the ibore. Hia strength, however, was rapidly falling, but, by a desperate eOort, be got so close that the bystanders dragged both out. Mr. Ardagh'a courage Is beyoud praise. While hundreds stood on the beach watching tho unfortunate man struggling helplessly, he nl me von tared into the boiling surf at the imminent risk of his life. For several iniuutea after he was rescued Mr. Ar dsgh lay almoat insensible on the beach, but we are happy to learn that he has now eatlrelv recovered from the effects of his heroic conduct. In the meantime the two unfortunate gentlemen were carried into one of the sum mer houses on the bank, and for several miuutes they were exposed to tho barbarous treatment to which drowned persons were liable in the dark ages. They were rolled on barrels, held up by ihe^beels. ho., and all this on Um beach, exposed to the cool breezes oil the sea. At length asms gentlemen took charge of the bodies, and lid srerylhing that science oould suggest to restore tho iltal spark, but, we regret to say, without sncoes. In sonclusion, we beg to suggest to tho hotel proprietors of joeg Branch that where a place is supposed to be dangeriua, notices should be posted up to that effect. Further sore, ropes well buoyed and anchored sbould he attached lo each bathing place, and the directioua of the London Humane Society with respect to the treatment of those who have been immersed in water should be posted up in oonsplcuous places in every hotel, In order to prevcut Uie repetition of such barbarous treatment aa was practised on those gentlemen. This Is the only accident of the kind that has occurred at Long Branch in the coarse n WTiTBi yrmrm. Loxo Bhajcb, August 11- 8 P. M. rhr Sid Calamity at I-ony Branrk?Ik* fhotomitg tf Mauri.

A M?t melancholy accident occurred at this plaoe, at half paat cIotcu o'clock tbla morning, by which Mr. John Whlttnker, a retired merchant of Tienton, and Dr. S 0. Dummer, of Jersey City, were drowned. The [?rtlmlari of Hie m<1 oflstr ore se follows:? It appears that two young men, tho sous of Mr. Za briskln, the lasryer, of Jersey City, and a young lady, daughter of bis, and a Miss Parker, of Newark, went bathing In the sand flat In front of the Metropolitan Ilotel. rhe party, from carelessness or otherwise, walked or Irlflod off the bathing ground. There being a strong under uTrent at the time, they were suddenly drifted Into leep water. The ladles Immediately gare the alarm, and Tied for help. Mr. Whittakrr and Dr. Hummer, who were ' bout going to the bathing houses to dress, nobly Jumped ^ n to assist them, and than sacrificed their own liven. ^ be ladies were safely rescued, but the two unfortunate h' enllemeo got no aid from the several geullemen look- ( | ng on, except a few benches thrown to them, till o{ Ir.

The following are the particulars of Urn m loi i.uly , u lastrophe About half past nine o'clock yesterday morning, Mr. Hats, h?B wlfr, Mrs. John Van T oe, Miss Frances Frar? iod Robert D Evans went In bathing nearly frc.rt.ng rt.imp'on's Pavilion Hotel, which Is only o short dlstanoo 'rein the Ocean House. A fresh breeze blew from the virt, and (he surf cam" breaking upon the beach with a lushing vigor and tumultuous foam, appreciated by the Ivvors "f g.a bathing. A strong current and sw.ft undertow prevailed .it the time. Very soon a Tier entering tho water, the current swept the party of bathers below tho po. 't where they entered Into deep water. Sensible of their danger, tin y called for assistance. It t\aeaneicill.ig time. The men strove to save the ladies. Several who were on the beach ran for a boat. Flxcepting Mr. Rat7. and his wife, the party were speedily rescued from their perilous position?the f.rmcr having, by the strong fhrre of the undertow, been carried farther from tho sbors. Knowing that Mr. Rate, was a powerful and expert swimmer, but little apprehension was re!', fur his safety. He was soen seen to sink, losing hla hold Trcia bis wife, whom he had been valnlv cdanrr.rlr* in W . 0 ? to the shore. Quickly Mr. Evans, although nearly xb.iusted from his previous efforts to save the Ives of thofe who hid be<n rescued, plunged nlo the water and swam for Mrs. Ratz. Do ,ook hold of the end of KVope with hts teeth, and, reacting Mrs. Ratz, tied the rope about her body, when, by tbo issistnnee of others, she was pulled to the b< ach. Meanimo Mr. Ratz was not seen to rise to the Surface aga.n. n ten minutes bis body was washod ashore. Now came the most exciting time of all?the efforts to esuscltale Mr. Ratx and his wife. Several physicians vho were present resorted to the usual means employed or restoring drowned persons. In the case of Mrs. Rats .he efforts proved successful. It was beyond the skill of .ho medical attendants to reauscitalo Mr. Ratz. .scarcely had the physicians given up their laborious it tempts to bring hack to the body of Mr. Rati the spark >r life, when they were called on to return, if possible, ife to the inanimate form of a young man named Gardiner, just taken fr >m the water close by. Gardiner and levcral youths of shout the same ace wero in swimming, i little farther up the beach, when the former was inrried by the same undertow beyond bis depth. Every tvailahle means was used to resuscitate him, but they were of no avail. Intense excitement followed the news of the drowning.
