Los Angeles, Nov'. 28. 185?. 2m A Ltai Worth Preserving—Curious farts from History. The Saxona first introduced archery in the time of Voltigeur. It was dropped immediately after the conquest, but revived by the Crusaders, they having felt the effect of it from the Partlri- ans. Bows and arrows as weapons of war were in use, with stone cannon ball, as late as 1640.— it is singular that all the statutes for the encouragement of archery were framed after the invention of gunpowder and firearms. Yew trees were encouraged in churchyards, for the making of bows In 1742. Hence their generality in churchyards in England at the present time. Coata of arms came into vogue in the reign of Richard I. of England, and became hereditary in families in the year 1192. They took their rise from the knights painting their banners with different figures to distinguish them in the crusades. The first standing army of modern time waa established by Charles VII. of France, in 1455. Previous to that time tha King had depended on his nobles for contingents in time of war. A standing army was first established in England in 1638 by Charles I. hut it was declared illegal, as well as the organization ofthe Royal Guards, iu 1370. The first permanent military baud instituted in England, was the yeomen ofthe guards, established in I486. Guns were invented by Swartz, a German, about the year 1378. and were brought into use hy,the Venetians in 1382. Cannon were inyented at an anterior date. They were first used at the battle of Creasy in 1345. In England they were first used at the siege of Berwick in 1405. It was not until 1544, however, that they were cast in England. They were used on hoard of ships by the Venetians in 1535, and were in use among the Turks about the same time. An artillery com- pany was instituted in' England for weekly exer- theycar 1610. nee on ships was first practised in the Caesar in the year 45. It was a general custom in Europe in 1194. Insurauce officea were first established in London, in 1G07. Astronomy was first studied by the Moors, and by them introduced into Europe, in 1201. The rapid growth of modern astronomy dates from the time of Copernicus. Books of astronomy and geometry were destroyed, as iuf'ected with magic, in England, under the reign of Edward IV. iu the year 1552. Bauks were first established by Lombard Jews in Italy. The name is derived from banco (bench) benches being erected in the market place for the exchange of money, etc. The first public bank was at Venice, in 1550. The Bank of England waa established in 1693. In 1699 its notes were at 20 per cent- discount. The invention of bells is attributed to Poloniua. Bishop of N<ila, Campania, about the year 400. They were first introduced into churches as a defence against thunder and lightning. Trieyjvere. first put up in Croyland Abbey, Lincolnshiref" 945. In the eleventh century, and later, it was the custom to baptize them in the churches before they were used. The curfew bell was established in 1073. It was rung at eight in the evening, when people were obliged to put out their fire; and candies. The custom waa abolished in 1100. Bellmen were appoiuted in 1556, to ring the bells and cry out, " take care of your fire and candle- be charitable to the poor, and pray for the dead How many are aware of the word " boo !" used to frighten children with. It is a corruption of the word "Boh," the name of a fierce Gothic general, the son of Odin, the mention of whose name spread a panic among his enemies. Book-keeping was first introduced into England from Italy by Peele in 1556. It was derived from a system of algebra, published at Venice by Bm Notaries public were first appointed by the fathers of the Christian Church, to collect the acts and memoirs of martyrs in the first sanctuary. The administration of the oath in civil cases is of high antiquity. See Exodus, sxii.. 10. ing on the Gospela was first used in 528. The oath was first adninistered in judicial proceedings in England by the Saxons in 600. The words, '■ So help me God, and all saints,'-' concluded an oath till the yesr 1550. Signals to be used at aea were first contrived by James II. when Duke of York, in 1665. They were a.'terwards improved- upon by the French commander, Tourville, and by Admiral Balchen, Raw silk is said to have been first made by a people of China called Seras, 140 B. C. It was first brought from India in 275, aud a pound of it at that time was worth a pound of gold. The manufacture of raw sifji. was introduced into Europe from India by some monks in 550. Silk dresses were first worn in 1455. Tbe eggs of the silkworm were first brought to Europe in 527. The Boston Law Reporter for June Contains a very able and thorough review of the Dred Scott ;' Decision," which will enable the reader to know what the Supreme Court has decided in that important case far more readily and clearly than he can learu from the official report itself. In fact, the review has done jnst what the reporter, Mr. Howard, in long and confused head notes, attempted, but failed to accomplish. Those, also^ who desire to understand, not merely the poiata which the so-called decision really decided, but what it did not decide, will do well to consult the Law Reporter's article, the authorship of which ascribed to Horace Gray, Jr., and John Lowell, two well known legal gentlemen of Boston. The result of their investigation of the decisiou is briefly stated as follows : "First—As to the question, "Can a negro be citizen of the United States?" It has been mmonly supposed that the court decided this question in the negative. This is a mistake. From the form iu which it was presented, it was very doubtful whether it was before the court for a decisi in. Four of the nine Judges thought it was ; theBe were the Chief Justice, and Justices Wayne and Daniel, who answer the question in the negalive, and Justiee Curtis, who answers it in the affirmative. Of the Judges who give no opinion on the point, one (Judge McLean) declares that if he answered the question'at all it would be in the affirmative ; Judge Catron,-when Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Tennessee, gave an opinion directly involving an affirmati to the question ; the three other Judges gave no clue to their opinions. On this question, then, the court stands thus: three in the affirmative, three in the negative, and three silent. Secondly- Waa the Missouri Compromise Constitutional? It is a perfectly well-settled principle of the Suprema Court, and one that has been often Chid down from its bench, that no part of an opinion of the court is to be regarded as of authority as a precedent which was not necessary to the determination .of the question before it.— Anything beyond this is merely the expression of the individual opinion of the judge ; and it has been well said that "it general dicta are to be considered as establishing the latv, nothing is yet settled nor can long be settled." Bearing mind. let us look at the facts in the case. Scott was a slave in Missouri ; was taken by his master to Illinois, and thence into a territory of the Un ted States where slavery was prohibited by the Missouri Compromise; and thence back X> Missouri. The opinion of the court is placed upon the ground that the laws of Missouri are to de" cide whether Scott is or is not a slave now tha1 be n»f]r,iuto„a u>;iv,Ui- Tf Btie ho no. nAukJ ratters it whether the compromise was valid or invalid? In other words whether Scott was free when in Illinois, or in the territory, or whether he still continued to be a slave all the time? And if the court goes out of its way to give an opinion on this point, could a plainer instance be found of an opinion on a point not necessary to the determination ofthe rights ofthe parties? "The court, then, has not decided that the Mis souri Compromise was unconstitutional. " Thirdly—This case is often spoken of as deciding that a master may take his slave to a free State and there hold him as a slave. This is a simple mistake ; there is no such point decided. But, " Fourthly—The doctrine is here established that, if a Blave be taken by his master to a free State, and does not there claim his liberty, but consents to return with his master to a slave State, he may be held as a slave there, if the highest court of that State considers him still to be a slave. In other words, the Dred Scott case does not decide that a negro is a slave in a free State because he was a slave in the State from which he was brought; nor, that a slave carried from a slave to a free State and brought back, is free because he might have claimed his freedom in the free State ; nor that he is necessarily a slave after his return ; b.it leaves his freedom or slavery to be settled by the laws of the slave State to which he returned with his master." The pacific Mall Steauislilp Company*! Rt«amr- era—Are ttiey seaworthy I We take the following, on this important subject, from a letter in the San Francisco Herald? from Mr. Charles J. Hughes. He says :— " When, greatly to my surprise and contrary to my expressed desire, I was appointed a member of the Committee on Arrangements and Itesolu-" tibns for the meeting of Saturday last. I assumed1 the trust repoaed in me with a determination to' fulfill it to the best of my ability, " without fear or favor, and forthwith devoted roygelf to the task. " I immediately placed -rsyfelf-in communication with the assocations of " Ship Carpenters " and " Ship Caulkers," presuming them to be greater experts in the " art and mystery " of shipbuilding, than lawyers or Underwriters' agents •■ and Friday night last I attended a special meeting of the ship carpenters, in which several of the: caulkers united, (the absence of their President from the city preventing a separate meeting.) At that meeting, after calm and dispassionate discussion, carried on between the men who had- worked upon the hulks of the steam vessels included in my remarks, I gleaned the following facts, to wit: that The Golden Gate is a good ship f the Colambia is also a good ship ; upper work of both too light. The Golden Age, Sonora, and John L. Stephens very slightly built, and the two latter worm-eaten^ (with the same remark as to top-hamper. The California, worm-eaten three years ago ;: partially repaired then, and not overhauled since. The Oregon, rotten aud unseaworthy. The Panama, having been in the Bay" of Pana- matwoyears, the parties could give no report,' but the Committee received information from1 other sources as to her condition on her recent- voyage to this port.- The Republic; pumps defective and useless,- when she struck- sis years ago, and the vessel leaky, and compelled to resoit to tiiem daily to1 keep her free, when placed on the Oregon route.- The Northerner,, worn out,, and the Fremont little better.- The Pacific, a staunch boat, if in order. The Sierra Nevada, a very weak boat. The Commodore (late Brother Jonathan) was- built in 1850. in New York,-for a "Sound " boat ;: has been raised' twice since ;- had five feet of water iu her hold'the last; time she was in port, and left without proper repairs ;- (1 note her safe r-etun* on Sunday last.) The Uncle Sam,- a safer ship than the Sonora' or John L. Stephens.- The Orizaba, a good, staunch vessel. Tha Cortes, bottom found, and recently re-cop-- pered ; upper works defective. -j.ue uonsntuiion, tn goon condition■ since ner repairs. The Senator, about to lay up for' repairs.- The Goliah, might be safe for a voyage across the Bay of San Francisco. The Sea Bird, staunch and In good order; The Santa Cruz, a good boat. The foregoing condensed report, after the opinion of the meeting had been taken on each vessel' separately, waa carefully read over by me, and af-- firmed by a general vote. NOTICE. S LAZARD, Esq. is my duly authorized Agent, while absent from the Slate. P. N. MADIGAN. Los Angeles, October 24th, 1857. WmrooT a Dimb.—A Washington letter says an amusing affair occurred there the other day. Mr. Breckenridge, Vice President, went into a barber shop for the benefit of his manipulation, aud having a good shave, put his hand in his pocket for the expected dime—but found nothing—uot even a cent 1 Here was a quandary for the second executive officer of this great republic. The barber, noticing his customer's hesitation, began to have suspicions that he was about being shaved himself, but forbore losing his temper, as fromMr.B's weli kuit frame, there was some prospect of his being lathered too. He very -politely told him that he found himself in au awkward predicament; that he had uot yet breakfasted, and that he would call in after the necessary meal and pay his bill. Our tonsorial fellow citizen muttered his aeseut to the arrangement, but could not help saying as Mr. B, passed out of the door—"some people do business in that way, and you may pay." Breckenridge took everything as a gentleman should, aud after breakfast, made all as " right as a trivet.''" The tonsor telt rather queer when he understood the matter, but likes to be quizzed about it- The age is getting more refined. " Root hog or die," is now rendered as follows : " Penetrate tbe subsoil, my porcine friend, or early expect an obituary notice on your untimely demise.-' THE ELECTIONS. Kansas.—The Kansas election, as far as heard from, foots up largely in favor of the Free State men. The following is the official majority vote as far as could be ascertained for delegate to Congress : Rankin (Dem.), 1,980 ; Parrot (F. S.), 3,- 374. It is said that the Legislature will stand— Democrats, 22 ; F. S., 30. Iowa.—The Iowa State election passed off most harmoniously. Mr. Samuels has been elected by the Democrats for Governor, and the Legislature was expected to be democratic. In the General Assembly the Democrats gained fourteen. Pexxstlvania.—In Pennsylvania the Democrats in most instances, swept everythiug before them, which was regarded as a high compliment to Mr. Buchanan and his administration. Minnesota.—-Mr. Ramsay has beeu elected Governor of Minnesota, and it was believed thst the whole Republican ticket was elected. Ohio.—In Ohio, the State election shows a great loss for the Republicans, but it is supposed that Chase, Republican, is elected by about S.OCO majority.. All the Republican State ticket is chosen, excepting Blackendorfer, tor the Board of Control of Public Works. The Legislature is two-thirds Democrats, Tennessee.—Andrew Johnson, the present Governor of thr State of Tennessee, was, on the 8th of October, elected as successor to Hon. James C. Jones, in the United SUtea Senate. The Santa Anna bribery revelations of General Pillow had not their desired efi'ect- — m > * i-cjbq. A country editor says that any young lady can get jiiin by applying soon, provided she can support him in the style to which he has beeu accustomed—three meals a day, a plug of tobacco per week, and a clean shirt for Sunday. We hope they won't all speak at ouce ; it might embarass the young maa. Kansas.—On the 13th of October, official information reached Washington that hundreds of persons have left Leavenworth for the pupose of set- tlrng on the lauds ofthe Delaware Indiaus,- whose rights the United States are pledged by treaty to protect. Instruction* have been sent to the Indian agents in Kansas-to enforce the law. If their efforts fail the United States troops will be employed to ezpel the intruders. A telegraphic dispatch from St. Louis, says/ that on the 13th of Oct., General Smith issued special orders for the eonveumg of a court martial at Fort Leavenworth on the 1st of November,- for the trial of Colonel Sumner. The charges were not all stated. .—_ ^ » ( a-am Mormon Tyfh.—The Mormons have got up an; alphabet of forty-one characters, matrices for a Pica font of which were recently forwarded there by a type foundry io St. Louis with which they design re-casting the English type now in use ia' that territory.
