tklj-JJtaer grrolfc 1 eptember 11, 1852. To theVaens of Placer County, -Tb roMgk the partiality of friends we lave been selected to the responsible po sition of publising the first Journal in Placer county, .auuougn somewnai nn- fident of our abilities, the strong prompt' ings of our inclinations, urge us to the task. In becoming a candidate for popular fa tor, a declaration of principles is due to the public. This time honored usage we have no desire to disregard, . but wil state, briefly, the principles which wil guide us in the conduction of the "Placer Herald." In all matters of religious or politica Concernment, the " Herald" will be free And independent. Thi peculiar advo cate of no sect or party, we shall strive earnestly to do 'equal and exact justice' to all. Whenever the interests either of the particular sections in which we live, or the State at large, may be involved, we shall ever feel it our duty to strike for the right. It will afford us pleasure to a p prove the acts of our public men, bu should duty point to a different caurse, we shall be bold to condemn. Without "friends to reward, or enemies to punish we come anions you, and trust that our comeing may be alike pleasurable and profitable to all. - rlacer being peularly a mining County, we shall labor especially for the developement of this great branch of in d us try and source of wealth. That we may be useful in our vocation, we ear nestly solicit the aid of intelligent miners. The opinions of practical men we con sider by far the most valuable, and the results of their experience will be dilli gently sought, and cheerfully Heralded. Jla the name of our Journal would in dicate, we desire to make it emphatically a newspaper, and shall spare no pains to accomplish this object; news items, there fore, of whatever description, that will Drove interesting to the Dublic. will be gratefully received. In conclusion we beg leave to tender to the citizens of Placer county our ac knowledgements for the handsome manner in which they have been pleased to receive us, and to pledge our best exertions in se curing to them a journal worthy of their confidence and support. Jgents. San Francisco, John F. Da- mon; Sacramento; Gen. Winn; Placer eouuty, all the Expresses; Smith Herrick at Yankee Jim's, and E. Brown at Spring Garden. Mining News. Manhattan company, on Manhattan Bar, four miles from Auburn, having drained the bed of the river in their claim, are driving a very good business, say 50 ounces per day. Rattlesnake Bar, two and a half miles below, miners are doing well; Rattle snake company averaging about ft 1,000 per day. Dead Man's Bar co. are also making excellent averages At Horse Shoe Bar there are a large num ber of people, many doing very well Fluming is carried on very extensively on the North Fork this year, and gener ally very successfully from the junction of North and Middle Fork to Beat's Bar. At Smith's Doton's Condemned and Beat's Bars, from accounts, miners are doing as well this year as ever they Rave done at those places. Outside. On our first page will he found the proceedings of the Democratic convention and various items ; on the fourth, a large portion of Gen. McDou galls Railroad speech. - Mr. Tingley is to reply in a few days, Bis speechy when it shall have been del ivered, will find a place in our columns. COThe news from tlio Atlantic States by the last steamer was not prolific of interest. Commercially there was nothing to note, and the only political items were from Missouri and Iowa, where partial election returns had been received. In the former it Js believed the Democratic party have triumphed And that col. Ben-oil is elected in his district; in the latter, the returns rccieved indicated a demo eratic triumph, ' Suicide. A man by the name of Jim Rhine, a member of tbo Indiana Bar co., on the North Fork of Feather mil tea! suicide on Saturday last, by jump- icjiatotho flume and being crushed by tfi Wheel,' Our Informant states that he bad expended about $6000 and that the work not yielding equal to his expectations, he threatened to put an end to bis life. He was a native of Tennessee. Insanity, growing out of his disappoint- tlifl ra!i ftrff. A w Art Oua Paper. Through tue kindness oi friends we are compelled to make our first number a bad specimen sheet. So liberally have advertising favors poured in upon us, that we have scarcely room to make our expected bow to the public. For the many kind wishes for our success, we return our most warm and heartfelt thanks, but cannot belp grumbling at the inroads made upon our editorial calculations, d long Placer county article, upon which we had prided ourselves, is unavoidably postponed, as are many other important items. We hope for better luck in the "good time coming." Taking Dinner. The Indians near Mineral Bar, North Fork, and the china men, have not been on good terms of late A few days since the Natives watched the celestials at a 'distance, while they were cooking their dinner, and as soon as it was done, made a descent upon them and run them off, after which they regaled themselves at the expense of the "broth ers of the sun." There was no blood spilled, but the Indians left the celestial housekeepers to cleanse their dishes after they had appeased their hunger, a most impolite way of trespassing upon neigh bors. - Thanks. Our Express friends have our thanks for many favors. . Adams & Co. were first with files from the Atlantic States, but Wells & Fargo, and Gregory followed close upon their heels. lhey are all kindly remembered. Lynching. On Monday night last a negro was arrested at tseais car, ior stealing a watch. A people's jury was empannelled, the theft confessed, and thirty-nine lashes duly admintstered. Mend your Ways. There might be some slight improvement in the streets of Auburn. A word to tbe wise, Slc. 03" Auburn has had several nar row escapes from fire recently, all from a careless leaving of matches. Too much caution cannot be used to guard against the devouring element. Political. The citizens of Placer county are among the most ardent politicians in the State. Since we have been here, there have been two poles raised at Ophir, one for either party; two conven tions held, and three candidates for Congress addressing the dear people.. There's a good time coming, boys!" CO" We had intended makingthe Her ald one column larger to the page, but fearing that we might get out of paper, we have decided to curtail the proposed fair proportions. 'Wait a little longer." Chinese War. There was quite an excitement a day or two since, between the Chinese and Indians' A report came in that an Indian had murdered and rob bed a chinaman, whereupon the celestials turned out in full force, capt. John sported a large saber, and liberal rewards WJie offered for the offenders. Two Indians were Brought in and lodged in jail over night, but were turned loose next day, there being no proof against them. Thus ended the only excitement which has disturbed the quiet of our town for several weeks past. OO" Among the items crowded out, are report of the courts San Francisco correspondence and local corespondence. We will make all possible amends in our next. Oca Job Office. Every variety of job printing can bo executed at the office of the "Placer Herald," in the best manner and on the sliunesi uuifcc- nl see f &?" Thanks to our advertising friends, their favors have been numerous and are duly appreciated. PLACER CO.
