It contains no later news than wo have already published In the Commercial but wo were struck With the rapid growth of this new State for State It Is by this time, or soon will be we suppose from Ihe appearance of this paper and the matter it contains. This paper is a double royal In small type, and has all the characteristics of a newspaper of the first class In the most thriving cities in tlio United States. They have their political squabbles, Indignation meetings, end all the abuse and scandul about each other, thai always attend the march of civilization and refinement. There are reporta of the Supreme Court, the Rccordcra Court, the District Court the admission of gentlemen to practice at the Bar. There is the commencement of an Artesan Well, in "Portsmouth Square," at San Francisco. Much is snid about tho Improvements of the Bay MaU communicationsdifficulties between the whites and In-dluns Fatal Affrays talk about Ihe 4(h of July the Fire Department Construction of Wells and Reservoirs luying out of streets erection of fire proof buildings keeping the Sabbath, dec. dec., all of which, if they do not exhibit the experience of age, certainly manifest the vigor of youth. We have not mentioned the various reports of the progress in gold-digging, but this is a matter of course. The Alia Californian ttleo contains a list of about 500 vessels, then remaining in the Port of San Francis co, from various ports of the world. This Is a great countty indeed, and California will make a grcut State, especially it the gold fever abates a little. FEELING AT THE SOUTH. We are glad to see aigns of returning sanity In one paper at the city of Washington t that speaks of the sentiments and feelings of the South, understand ing, without attributing to the maes ef the people here the wild and foolish doctrines of the ultras. The following from the Washington 17 fori of Saturday last, is almost a transcript of the langusgo we have used from the beginning of this disturbance, relative to the views and determination! of. the most and the best of southern citizens .- ' " Let the " Reporter " sneer as It will, the Union of the States is io great peril. 'The principal dnnger arises from the difliculy of impressing the northern Slates with the decision of the South. The South is deeply sensitive and greatly excited. It was but yesterday that we were shown letters (and conversed with gentlemen from I lie southern States) which represent many of their citizens aa highly excited, and indignant at the aggressions of the fanatics. Disunion, which but ten years ago woe never uttered but with fear and trembling;, is now boldly spoken of, jusustified, and recommended. Look at the revelations in South Carolina. Hear the loud mutter-ings of Georgia, still more highly wrought up than South Carolina herself. See the signs in Florida. We tell the Reporter " thst some ol the most ardent friends of the South sre alarmed at Ihe lan guage which is openly expressed in the streets of her cities. There is a limit to the forbearance of her most quiet people. Upon one point our minds sre perfectly made up : that if the Wilmot Proviso be attached to either of the territorial bills, the Union cannot withstand the shock, ll will be remembered with the things that hsve been. Thr n u ht -v wmiiu warn our northern countrymen of the danger which threatens us. We were never more earnest in anything we have ever said than in declaring our solemn belief that the South is in earnest in her determination, and that there la a point beyond which she will never submit. Pass the Wilmot Proviso, and we repeal the Union is gone. Hon. IIiniv Clay having been invited to attend tho Taylor obsequies in Boston, on Thursday, declined in a letter lo the Mayor, dated Newport, August 13. DROWNED. An English boy. about 18 years of age went into the river to bathe, on Sunday morning last, from on board the brig Buena Vista, from New York, and was drowned. He jumped from tbe boat which was lying along side the brig, and rose no mors to the surface of the water. He had been but 8 days on board his nsme was believed (o be Charles Oad. RAILROAD AFFRAY. A difficulty occurred, on Tuesday afternoon last, between the conductor of the Morris and Easex Railroad train and a number of rowdies, who were determined to ride to Orange, or somo place upon ' the line of the toad. free. The train was slopped and the fare demanded, which being refused, they were ordered to leave the car. Thia they alao refused to do, when the conductor and hands attempted lo put them out, but were overpowered by superior force. During ths frscas the conductor wasconaid- I erably Injured. Horrible Murder and Hulcldc of the MurdererAmputation and Death. FasosaicaiiLSQ, Vs., Aug. 18. A most brutal murder occurred yesterday at a place called White Oak, about five miles frum here. A man, by Ihe name of B II Brown, took s shsrp exe, and at the drat blow, nearly severed the head of a Mr. John Fagot from his body; tho second blow nearly severed his under jew from his head, and the third spill his skull entirely open. Tho murderer then attempted to cut his own throat, but was st the .time prevented. He, however, last night fully effected bis purpose, snd both murderer and victim are dead. MONUMENT TO ROBERT FULTON. Near Troy, Indiana, Is a hill which Fulton was fond ef visiting, and at tbe foot of which he and his brother kept a wood yard, and sold wood to the steamers, the creatures of his genius, which navigated the Ohio. He was fond of watching from this point, it la aald, their progress and speed in ihe water; and It has been selected, by Ihe admirers of hi genius, In Ihe West, as a fit place to erect a monument to hie memory. Him (hit tutu ineideni louchea the heart 1 A moth er who was In the habit of asking ber children, before they retired at night, what they had done during the day to mati tthtrt happy, found a young twln-dtughier silent. The elder one spoke modestly of deeds and dispositions, founded Oo the golden rule, " Do unto others as yon would (bey aboald unto you." Still ilte little bright face was bowed down In sileooe- Tbe question was repeated,' and the dear little child aald, timidly -"A little girl who sat by me on the bench at school, had kwt a baby brother.

Deponent further stuted that the Indy hnd threatened his life, and that he was In bodily fear of her. The affidavit also charged one 11. N. Avis with, threatening to shoot deponents slave, Maria. It oppgars that Muson was accused by the lady of having ,cifculuted certain slanderous reports about her, which reports ho obtained from his negro girl Maria. This so enraged the lady that she shot at him, as above stated. But, finding that the shot had tnken no effect, she sent Mr. Mason a note, of which the following is a copy : " Carbollton, AugUHt 4, 1850. "Mr. Maion Sin Having been grossly and villainously slandered by you and your accomplice, Maria, and furthermore molested by having fpies set to watch my house at night, I demand satisfuc tion from you. I shall expect you to meet me with pistols as soon as possible. (Signed) ." The examination look place. It was not attempt ed by the defence to deny the shooting. It was proved that the accused waa a lady of unblemished character t but the Justice felt it to be his duty to bind her over to keep tho peace for six months in the sum of tSOO. Avis was also bound over. A suit for slander will be brought by the lady for damnges in this case. SERIOUS FLOOD. We learn from tho York Republican, tltnt tho gust of Saturday the 10. h inst. caused nn unprecedented rise in the waters of Cooper's Rock Run, which empties into tho Susquehanna at or near Pi-uch Bottom, in York county, sweeping away all the dams on tho stream, including those of the Messrs.

Nor do we mean giving them paragoric, Daffy's elixir, Dalby'b carminative, black drops, or any other poison. The only requisite to quiet a squalling, squealing little buby Is, that it shall possess a nose.
