I, and consternation vu depicted on every coontfr unoe Ilia feeling *11, that when ?o e?t Unable a man aa Mr. Heeler* became tba victim of murderers, no ana la the community oould ba safe It *u noon aacartalaad that the objact of whoever perpetrated the deed til robbery, the safe in the office having ban opened and emptied of ita contents. The tint impulse of the people wan to hold a meeting, which accordingly took place, the raeult being the imme diate despatch of ridera to all the ferriea of Tuolumne county to atop the egraaa from the county of au^ui picious character!!. In the meantime a coroner'a Jury wan summoned to vake an oxaninstion, and if posafhle find Home clue which might lead to the detection of the perpetrators of the foul deed. The jury aat for six hoar* patiently, taking testimony. Dr. Manning made an examination ef the body. Eight wouada were found on the head of the deceaaed, doae with an axe. The skull waa broken on the crown, and aome ?f the brain* were acattered on the floor: and a blow had been inflicted on the left temple, and another on the right temple, either of which was sufficient to hare caused death. The face of deceased was awfully disfl* fared with wounds, and the noae was broken. Not only was the head thai mangled, bat, more horrible still, the month, throat and nostrils were stuffed with paper? the ?very refinement of hardened villany. This was done to fcevent the deceaaed making any noise. Our space will not permit us to ge into any further Bticulars ; therefore, we will but briefly refer to the t that among the witnesaes examined was ane E. C. Griffiths, who had of late been somewhat familiar tn the < Bee of Mr. ueslep. It appearing from his own testimo ay, aa well aa the testimoay of others, that he was the laat person seea in the office conversing with Mr. Heslep, suspicion very soon rested upon him. and he was sub jected to a rigid examination before the jury three or feur different t rued. Each examination seemed to strengthen the suspicion, until finally the Justice waa about to commit him. when constable Phillips came in ? said announced that the stolen money had been found in a carpet bag, and in the pantaloons pocket of Griffiths, which were discovered iwhis bed in the boarding house where be was staying. The pantaloons were all bloody . Confronted with these evidences of his gutlt, the priso aer now acknowledged the commission of the crime, and ?sade a full confession of all the circumstances, which we here append My name is Edward Griffiths: I was bora in Liverposl. England, in 18124. i went to Ireland when a boy, ana have been at sea since i was eleven years of age; I came 1* California from Australia in November last. I first went to Celiac, from thence to Panama, by steamer, and then came to ban Francisco on the steamer Golden Age; was in San Francisco since until I came to Sonora, pre vious to New Year's day.-7 First conceived the design of the murder last night. I asked Mr. Heslep to loan me some money. He had a bag of money in his hand, con. taining gold and silver, which he had taken from a par tition in his desk. When 1 asked deceased to loan me the money, he refused. I then plaaed my hand apon the bag, with no intention of taking it, upon which he arose and struck me on the breast. My blood being arouaed, I immediately picked up the axe, and struck de ceased with it on the temple; I then struck him again with !t two or three tines when he was down. He continued to makea noise, andl then put the paper in his ?ostrils and mouth. I then took the bag and the key which he had in his hand, unlocked the safe, and took the gold ?at of it. I then replaced the key of the safe npon the table, blew out the light, and left the house. Was oc cupied only five minutes in the business. I went to my room, placed the money in my carpet-bag, changed my Ctaloons, and walked out. I went down to the Long i, and scon returned to Mr. Hesiep's office, in wlilcu time the murder had been discovered. When I placed My hand upon the bag, I had to intention to t:ike the money, but did it In more of a joke than anything elsfe 1 said to Mr. Heslep, <> Yoa might as well Mid me this. When 1 saw that I had killed him, I took the money, for 1 then thought that I could make the matter no worse. 11>e paper which 1 put in his mouth I got from the table. Five minutes before doing it, I had no idea of committing the act. I acknowledge tnls to be {he wbole truth, and make thfk confession of my own fiee will and aocord, without fear, threats or compulsion from any person. This is made before the Coroner's jury, at fifteen minutes to 2. A. M., Friday, 19th January, A. D.*185S. E. C. GRIFFITHS. Subscribed and acknowledged before me, this 19th day cf January, 1666. B. F. SULLIVAN, J. P., Acting Coronor. f wrote the above confession for the said Griffiths, and after it was read to him, he signed it in my presence The said Griffiths was ad 4sed by me, before he confessed, that no forec or compulsion would be resorted to, In or der to Induce the confession, to which he answered, 11 1 do it freely." ?. McD. (WLLINS. Aa soon as this became known abroad, alarm bells were rung, and enraged citksns gathered from all quar ters, besieging the building where the examination was taking plaoe. Finally, an immense assembly having gathered, a series of resolutions was passed to the effect that the prisoner should be hanged the next morning by daylight, and a large committee was chosen to watch around the building until morning. Not a disputing voice was raised to these resolves. ray light," at length came, and with It the c'.tlrens re assembled in large numbers. Sheriff Solomon tna-le a speech to the assemblage in favor of law, but It bad no effect on the crowd. The Sheriff and his deputies then made an effort to take the prttouer to the jail, but all was vain, the pri soner was seized on the moment he was brought forth from the building, and marched off, surrounded by aim Ad men, to the outskirts of the town The crowd be ia k fits tool ftn4 <3*termin?<i manner. Finding a ?ni table tree, a rope was adjusted to one of Its limbs, and very soon this miserable murderer met the dishonor able end which he so richly deserved. He went out of this world without one sympithlfiog word being hoard around his gallows ? wretched and accursed mauk ml. What adds to the enormity of his crime is the fart, that in coming to honors he brought a letter of intro duction to the Messrs. Heslep from tiielr brother, Judge Baslep, ef San Francisco, the consequence of which aras that they befriended und assisted him since his arrival hare, lie had been a visiter at their office, and acknow ledged before his death that they had acted with great kindness and friendship towards him. Trulyj a greater demon sever exist# d iu human shape. The following two letters to his wife, be wrote after his confession. Throughout the wbole of the proceed ing* ha displayed no sign of nervousness or fear, but on the contrary, maintained perfect coolness and self-p?s Mssion to the last.

A telegraphic despatch dated Sonora, January 20, s;.ys : "ttrifflth wan hung by Judge Lynch yesterday morning, between 7 and 8 o'clock. Be waa a native of Liverpool, aland, and wai thirty years of age. He emigrated to fornia from Australia, and has left a wife in San Francisco " 'Execution of Brown and Alvitre, ?t I<oi Angeles. [From the Lo< Angeles Star, Jao. 18.] Last Friday, the 12th Instant, was the day appointed for the execution of Brown and Alvitre; but aa Sheriff Barton had received an order from Judge Murray staying the execution [of Brown, he proceeded at the hour de signated to put the extreme penalty of the law into exe cution in the case of Alvitre. As great excitement ex isted and loud threat* made that Brown should be hang with Alvitre, the Sheriff considered it necessary to sum mon * large number of citixens to assist him in doing his duty. Many of them answered promptly to the call, but a large majority refused to interfere. Nsrverthe'eis the Sheriff, witb his usual energy, and assisted by Or. Oeburn. under the protection ol a citizens' guard, com ?sanded by Col. Shelley, conducted Alvitre to the gal - lews at ten minutes to three o'clock P M.. who ad dressed the multitude in a few words, forgiving all his enemies, and asking forgiveness from all whom be had Injured. At three o'clock the drop fell, and inconse quence of the noose untying, the poor outcut fell to the ground. It was a m< ment of inten?e^ntere?t, and shouts of a rescue were beard in the immense crowd outside the prison yarl. Home stones were thrown at the guard, who wero well armed with rides and revolvers to resist to the death a r-scuee of t'te prisoner. At this moment the gusrd ware ready with rifle* cocked and presi nted lor any emergency, expo ;t a every Instant that a rush would be mike by the ble to force an entrance. Bad sucb be?n the case the eacriCce of life would have been horrible in the ex treme, aid many innocent persons' lives stcnflcel by the lawless moh. Happily no seritus attempt was made to prevent the execution, snd the prisoner was ?gain placed upon the scaffold, the rope re-a<tju<ted, au l the poor Indian was launched into eternity. The boJy waa cut down after banging some twenty minutes, put 1b acoffln and de'ivered over to hi< friends. Instead of ?bating , the excitement continued to increase. After the execution of Alritre. and the ifuard had given up their arms and were discharged irom duty, addresses were Made to tbe mob. and a motion to break op hi the jail and take Brown oat and hang him was carried unanmouaiy. They then went to the jail, headed by Oaptaia Hunter, broke open the door* with axes, add after removing the irons from Brown, took hira out, leaving Lee, who is to be hnng on the 12th of next nou tli and was in the Fame cell, behind unharmed. There being no scaffold crepuied, he waa taken a.'rnas tea large gateway opposite the Court Bono to th? heavy crossbeam rf wlilrh a rope waa fasteaed. and a chair being placed beneath, Brown was elevated thereon and tbe rope fixed about his neck. Some time was al lowed him, during which he evinced the utmost cool ness, recognising and speaking to his acquaintances In tbe crowd, and in reflecting in j >cular terms upen the crown who were enraged >? his execution. Be stated that he bad been tol l that he killed Clifford, and sop pseed, of course, that he did. although he said that he had no recollection of It, or to that effect. Perceiving that these aboat were lgnor|pt of the method of pre paring the rope, 'lie ealled to an acquaintance and re quested him 'oget seme Americans who understood It, te hang him. Throughout tbe scene he manifested the most careless indifference. and Anally jumped off into eternity, with tbe same coolness and hardihood at had characterised him through life. After remaining upon the gallows, bis body was taken down and placed in the Jail building*, and on tbe succeeding day buried by some ?f the citlsena. Where the miners ran obtain the water to wash their ?|rt, there appears to be Httle difference la the y|?i4 of the prec*eua metal We have cHpped a few items from the ronatrr papers, giving some of the proceed* of the liferent ?{ggin|S. The Miners la the neighborhood of Wyandot are, for ?lit ?t water, pfoepeetlag their claims. Many pla-ee >r? fonnd to b? rich, one panful of earth yielding |S M. ? piece of hU. weighing 32 X ounce', wu taken oat of the claim of Hiram L. Barton, ft short time since. In the region of Georgetown the bill or cayote diggings $re considered the beet. At Jonea' Hill several compa nies have struck the paying. In the Columbia claims tne paying lead averages about ire feet in dertth ? rich about two feet. The company bare only worked about fifteen feet in the pay dirt, and thus far the yield is constantly increasiug as thev pro ceed into their claims. The pay dirt thus far will are rage one hundred dollars to the foot. Within the drift they took out of a single crence in the rock eighty pounds of pure gold. The dirt in the Colon Tunnel paid all expenus from the beginning. In the commencement of the tunnel, and in the face of the hiU, the par dirt was about twenty-one feet In depth from the boo rock. The mils pay lead will average from eighteen inches to three feet in thickness, snd will probably average half an ounce of gold per day to the hand. These claims are vary exten sive, and will require years or labor before they are worked out. In the bottom of the shaft on top or the hill, the company took out $18,000 in the circumferenoe of about six feet square. The Flying Cloud Company have drifted into the pay dirt about fifteen feet, although they are not yet into the main channel. The gravel already pays from twelve and a half to fifty cents to the pan. The Summit Company's tunnel is six feet high and fonr feet wide. They have drifted in near one hundred feet in length and eigh ty feet in breadth. The pay dirt is from three to fowfeet deep, and has prospected $36 to the pan. This company, as well as the one preceding it, has splendid pronuects ahead. In Stockton Bill the miners still find rich diggings. There are a number of tunnels being worked here, which ]>ay very richly. A small pile of dirt laying in front of one of them is ho rich that the proprietors would not take $4,000 for it. and yet It looks as if there waa not a dozen cait loads in it. This is by no mans an unusually rich claim. In Calaverss the claim of Dr. Hibbsrd, situated near the summit of the ridge running between Old Woman's and Chile gulches, at a point a short distance north of the Centre House, there are four men employed, who wash, on an aversge, one hundred cuiic yards of dirt per day. Bed Wood mines, near Cresent City, continue to be worked with success, and the number of miners is stea dily increasing. On Clark's creek, where gold waa firat found, they made big wages, and other gubhes and creeks in the vicinity are being worked. The lsteness of the season is somewhat unfavorable at the present moment, but it becomes daily more evident that the dig glnga In the Red Woods will ultimately occupy a large mining population. From Feather river we learn the miners at and in the vicinitv of Rich Bar and the contiguous Bars were doing well, the stream beiog nearly, if not quite, as low as at any time during the summer. A party of Germans, numbering abeut six or seven, struck a bank lead on the river, come two miles above Rich Bar, a short time since, which has yielded hand somely. Tie gold is nearly all coarse, snd one of the lumps exhibited to our informant weighed Bixteen ounces. The earth is i canty, but the interstices of the bed rock, which is chip filute, are filled with small globules of gold. The claim of thef e Germans has averaged twenty ounces Sr dsy, with five hands employed. It is extensive, and ere is little prospect of its being exhausted for some time to come. DRIVING TBI CnlNBSE FROM TDK MINES. The Shasta Courier informs us that mass meetings of the miners have been held in Shasta coanty, at which much feeling was manifested, and resolutions were Ml binding thoee present to Prevent Chinese working mines after the 26th of February. The procee P ingfl appear to have created quite a stampede ameng the Celestial population. Large numbers of the miserable creatures came down from Marysvllle on the Enterprise yesterday. In the resolutions referred to, the miners of other sections are requested to co operate In the woak ef expulsion. At the same time, a protest is entered by D. Day and I* V. Tripp, against the proceedings at the Shasta convention, on the ground that the resolutions passed contravene the law of the State, and the Execu tive is called upon to oppost its execution. Miscellaneous. Fight with thi Ikduss ? Ad encounter between fifteen of the Klamath Rangers and some thirty -five Indiana took plaoe on the Lagoon, four miles from Crescent City, on lb* morning cf the 31at December, and resulted in the death o. seme thirty Indiana. The Indiana had three guns. On Monday, the lat January, on an island in Smith river, some six miles above Its month, from sixty to feventy Indians congregated to make an attack upon whomsoever sbouid p?ss that way. We are in formed that the Klamath Rangers acted in concert, and with tbe assistance of the settlers in Smith rivur valley, in tbe attack made upon tbe Indians. When it was as certained that a number of them were gathered al a ranch on the lagoon, about fifteen of the Rangers repair ed thither on the morning of the 31st December, bill did not approach the ranch without being perceived by an old squaw, who battened to apprise the Indiana of the dan ger. lhev gathered hastily, and having three gnns, were the first to Are, without doing any damage, how ever. I'pon the fire of the whites, the Indiana threw themselves in the water, and swam to the other tide of the lake, only to encounter the fire of ano.ber party who lay in wait for the fugitives. We are told that only five eicaped, and that none of tbe women were killed. These latter showed little fear, and f.-om tbe bl gisning of the fight put themselvea In the rear of the whites, the older ones clamoring and abasing them, while the younger portion of them seimed little atlectcd, and only begged mercy for their huts and pro visions. Tbe remainder of the Indiana in Smith river valley, with tome of the fugitive* out of the first en counter, number ng in all about sixty or seventy^ are now said to be congregated on an Island in Smith river, at an old rancheria, and are supposed to have at least six guns with them, viz.: the three they had in the first fight, and three tbey took from thi ranch of Mr. Rey nolds, whose house tbey sacked on the dav of tbe fight. The Rangers, assisted by the aeltlers In the valley, will in*, probably, number tome thirty or forty men, and t! e Im'luDu have but a small chance of e icape. ? Crescent City lJeraUi. Mork Indian Trotthm? ?News came to Union on the 16th of January that five white men were murdered by tbe Klamath Indians, near Orleans Bar, on tbe lath. Col. Buchanan immediately sunt a detachment of twen ty-five United States troops, under the command of H. W Judnh, to the liar, and also a party of volunteers from I'nlon. Consi<leral>le difficulty is apprehended, as the Indians have sent all the squaws and children into the mountains. The names or two of the men who were murdered were Wheeler and O'Neill, who were both trader*. among mii Dtdiaks. ? On the 2d of January a meeting of the citizen* of Pittsburg was held to take Into consideration the condition of the Indian population in that region In the resolutions adopted it is stated that one thousand of the unfortunate aborigine* are In a starving condition, and that owing to the lateness of the season they cannot be sent to the Nome Lakee re servation. Representations of these facts were forward ed to Colonel Henley, and it was hoped he would estab lish a temporary post for the relief of the Indians some where in that neighborhood. PK*n?ccTrvE Fir.* in Yrkka? Loss, >11,800.? We learn from tbe Yreka llrrald that a tire broke out in that town on the 10th of January, by which property to the amount of eleven tliou fund dollars wa>. destroyed. The fire caught in a frame house belonging to Howlitt & Rodger s, on Ma n street, consuming thiee buildings belonging to these gentlemen, cne belonging to Mr. I/Jckhart, and the blacksmith shop of Mr. Arnold. The evening being calm and foggy, and many of tbe roofs being covered with snow, th? exertions of the citizens kept the lire from npreading further. The houses of Messrs. GofT and Goo. Smith were also injured. The losses are estimated a* follows : ? How lit t k Rogers. $4,000; Harry I/O jkhart, #'.2,000; R. F. Ford, #1,000; B. W Arnold, #800; J.

The bar room of tho Orleans Hotel was tbe scene of unusual excitement about eight o'clock last evening, in consequsnce of a hostile collision between . Jam* * Chun bmac. Esq., recent candidate for Congress, | and R. A. IWividge, Esq., formerly of Nevada. The | former, while standing in front of tbe bar, was encoun i tered by the latter, snd struck severely several times i over the head with a cane. Mr. Churchman seized hi* i assailant immediataly, and thrust him against tho bar, when he was released by the interference of a third , party.

Proclamation of the Military Commander Against Filibusters. [From the San Diego Herald, Jan. 13 ] A rumor has been current here, for the past week, that the people of tower California were about to mats a demonstration to secure their independence of the Mexican confederation. As this rumor may hive the effect to brtnr down fmta the apper counUes a limds of cutthroats and rubbers, who may consider thli a fit op portunity to exercise their lasless vocations, we deem It proper to notlly sich persons as may be attracted to this point by tbe hope of plunder, that there Is no ?en sible or eane man in the whole or Lower California who has for a moment entertained such a thought as a decla ration of Independence. Even If the people desired it, they have n?t the pecuniary or physical ability to sus tain an independent government for tbe space of six months. Tie following, which we publish at the request of He nor Melendies. Commandant* of the northern frontier or tower Galifcrrls, indicates a frl*nlly disposition on the part of our neighbors, which Is highly commendable snd prabewotlhy ? especially as we have no treaty with the eupreme government of Mexico, as with some othsr powers, providing for the arrest and surrender of fugi tives from justice. As far as we have Wen abls to as certain 'he public sentiment of tbe people of toeer Cali fornia Sener Melendres possesses their entire confidence, and Is doing all in his power, even at a personal ee:riflca, to promote tbe interests and sdvance tbe prosperity of the people over whom be is deputed by the central gov ere me n t to exercise authority.

Rochmtir, Feb. 7, 1866. ! Weather? Charter Election? The Knout N~ | thing s ? The Firemen. Since the advent of the preaent month, the w* ther haa been of the moat tedious wintry charack ever experienced in this section. The railroad i running west of us have been wone blockaded tha j ever before, anow drifts being from ten to lfteen fee is depth, and of lengths sufficient to detain train; with five or six engines attached, twenty-four 1 1 thirty-six hoars. Throughout the coustry all road < are obliterated and communication suspended, an J aimers are banked In. Bach a storm has not, "i| the memory of the oldest inhabitant," been knot haratofwe. The mominga of the 6th and 7th i however, that old resident was still more astonishe to note frr the first time in this section the thermd meter ranging 16 negroes below zero, and no mil?, 1 change is yet visible. \ The approaching charter election in thia city b< Bto awaken attention. The old partiee are ii trouble, having been infected and shorn o fttmngth by tbe prevailing American princi A, which Kweep Western NewTork with power ffect. The K. N.'s are numerous and abundant ? The recent results, however, in oar siste?fl eoanties In sustaining "Sam's" claim, is a sampl* c ; tbe Me that awaits them here. It is amusing Ul witness the elongated vitagss that have heretoron I beamed wtth > miles caused by the tickling sensa I Won of the spoils. The American party morea on I ward la tuli oonfldonse, and the old "spoils dealera' I are ??r ioukI s affected with Belahazaar's chills. Thi ] aboimot lata have got up a faint rejoicing over aH'? reelection, having boned some powd^HI aaafeen the dead sensibilities of their lmpendin^l fate, and cauaiag a abort relaxation of their counte I nearer. But their cimfort is cold, and, likeflBB m a; her, below aero. The re-eUction of Seward JW net "fall like a wet blaifcet" upon thia seotion I therefore aone are surprised. A deep feeling extob I agaiast th'?e who have proved perfidious to theli I coastitoenta, and there la a current of revenge wide j sad determined, which thoee who have soldi ?bir'bri((bt annot stem. It will prove a sorra leaf la tbe political history of thoee who tuH rendered vowed American principlea to the and <lk>tatlnn of political demagoguaa. The ftresaea of this city have challenged brethren throughout the State to a trial of en|^| ea the 3M instant, bore, three prizea being put^H It ia expected that it will be a great straggle aaaoTI a aoeei character, as it la tbe first trial oMheUnc I la these parts.
