The following is a brief synopsis of the charges against the late Treasurer of State :— 1. That said Henry Biites, on the llth of April last, paid to Palmer, Cook & Co., about $U8.00i>, to pay the July interesl, without taking therefor a good and sufficient bond. 2. That the said Henry Bates, at divers times, has purchased Controller's warran.s anil other evidences of indebtedness, with money belonging to the jState, without authority of law. 3. That said Henry Bates, under color of his office, wilfully and criminally substituted Controller's warrailta Por sundry amounts of cash receiv ed from County Treasurers of San Francisco, Sac ramento, Amador and El Dorado counties—(with eix specifications.) 4. That said Heniy B iles, without authority of law, and for fata owti Individual beneM, allowed and permitted W. S. Ilughson and E. A. Rowe. to substitute warrants foi cash received from County Treasurers. 5. That said Henry Bates, in violation of law failed te keep the moneys paid him as State Treasurer within the vaults of dis office, and without any warrant or eulhority whatever, paid to E, A Rowe the sum of $124,000. 6. That said Henry Bates, having received large sums of money from various Couuty Treasurers and deposited the same with the banking house of Wells, Fargo & Co., and afterwards permitted one E. A. Rowe to draw out and loan, and otherwise use the same for his own and for the benefit of said Bates, in buying gold dust, etc. 7. That said Henry Bates did, on the 15th of January, draw his official draft on Wells, Fargo & Co., for $15,000, which sum was drawn by E. A. Rowe, and used by him as above cited, 8. Thai said Henry Bates, by reason of the above acts of misconduct, a large deficiency was created in the State Treasury, and that for the purpose of concealing the same from the Investigating Com. mittee appointed by the Legislature, and that by a promise of an official draft, did procure from Wells, Fargo &: Co.. the sum of $20,000, wliich was exhibited to the committee as the legitimate funds belonging to the Treasury ; that $7,509 of said money was in California ten dollar pieces, on which there is a depreciation of two and a half cents on the dollar, aud in paying back the said amount' the whole was paid in coin of the United States, 9. That said ilenry Bates, in pursuance of law, received from D. E. Ashley, sundry warrants to be bonded, under the funding law of 1856, and exchanged them for others drawn in favor of other parties, delivering to said Ashley bonds issued for said substituted warrants, neglecting to m ike endorsements required by law on warrants orifj ally presented by said Ashley; and further, conniving and conspiring against the good \ oftlie people of this Slate, and causing said or nal warrants, so presented for bonding hy I). R. Ashley, to appear as revenue by the Treasurer of the coiihty of San Francisco. The hour of 12 o'clock (5th March) having arrived, the oath was administered to the Lieut. Governor by the Secretary, to fairiy and impartially try the accused. The Senators were then sworn by the presiding officer in like manner. Tlie Sergeant-at-Arms. was then sworn as to his having issued process according to the order of ths Senate. The Sergeant -at-Arms then proceeded to the bar of the Senate, and audibly r 'ad h s proclamation opening tho Court of Impeachment. The Committee selected by the Assembly, con- a'stinj; of Messrs. Catlin, Swaaey, Brent, Slieppnrd, Moore, McKune and Hall, to attend the trial, appeared and took their seats. Shortly thereafter, the accused, accompanied by his counsel. J. W. Winans. ('. T. Botts and Col. Baker, appeared and took their seats within the bar. The counsel for the defence then rend an affidavit, praying for a postponement ofthe trial, which, alter argument, was overruled. After overruling various other motions interposed by defendant's counsel, the defendant filed his plea, denying the jurisdiction ofthe Court of Itcpeacl ment* on the ground that, under tho constitution, he is entitled to a trial hy jury. And denying that he is subject to this pruceeding by Impeachment, for the reason that, at the time when he was impeached before the Senate, he had ceased to be Treasurer of State, that he had resigned said office, and his resignation had been accepted by the Gover nor. And also alleging that two indictment have been found against him by the Grand Jury of Sacramento, for the same offences as charged in tho articles of impeachment,—upon which he is to be tried—wherefore he prays judgment whether he ought to be compelled to answer said articles of impeachment. Mr. mcKuae asked further time to reply to the defendant's plea, and the Court adjourned. Ou Thursday, the 12ih of March, Mr. Winans. counsel for defendant, submitted the following paper: IX TUE SENATE OF THE STATE OF CAT.IFOKXU : State of California vs. Hunry Bates— On the impeachment of said defendant by the Assembly of California, and the said defendant, Henry Bates, protesting against the jurisdiction of this Honorable Court, ou tlie ground that defendant is not and was not at the time he was impeached, the Tre r ol tin State, but only a private citizen, holding no office whatever ; and also, that Ihe defendant is now under an indictment, and ab;»ut to be tried in the proper Court of Criminal jurisdiction fur the same offences as are charged iu the articles of impeachment agaiust him. And not desiring to be twice put iu jeopardy for the same offense, this defendant having averred and still averring the insufficiency ot the impeachment against him, respectfully declines aud refuses to plead therein. Henry Bates. Upon the reading of this paper various suggestions were made. Mr. Ferguson, of Sacramento, read the law. That a refusal to plead is equivalent to a plea of guilty, and all that remained for the Court to do was io pronounce the judgment ofthe law. After various motions were discussed, Mr. Coffroth offered an order that the Court go into secret session to judge of the matter at once, which was adopted hy a vote of 27 ayes to 5 noes. So the Court went into secret session. On the doors being opened, Henry Bates was commanded to appear at the bar ot tho Senate. His counsel, Mr. Botts, answered lor him, when the Secretary read the following : VEItntCT OF THE COCKT. In the matter of impeachment of Henry Bates, on Articles of Impeachment, he having refused to answer— It h, therefore, ordered, adjudged and decreed, by the Senate as a High Court of Impeachment. tbat saul Hates is guilty of the charges preferred I him. Adopted— by ayes,-9ff; nays, 1—Mr. Westmoreland. The President then announced the following sentence from the chair: Whereas, The Senate, as a High Court of Impeachment, on the twelfth day of March, A.I). 1857, found Henry Bates, Treasurer of Stale, gailty of the charges preferred against him in the Article? of Impeachment; And whereas, said Bates resigned his office after his impeachment by tlie Assembly ; therefore it is Resolved, Adjudged and decreed by the Senate, that said Henry Bates be forever disqualified from holding any office of trust, honor, or profit under lhe State of California. Adopted. Ayes, 30; nays, 3—Messrs Cosby, Ferguson of Sacramento, and Westmoreland. On motion, the Court adjourned until Monday, March 2:3d. Report of Che Controller of tHc state. This report occupies, wilh the tables, some forty pages. The expenditures and resources of the Government are fully shown. The report says : " The idea seetns to have prevailed, uot only in the Convention that framed the Constitution, but w'th succeeding Legislatures, that the sources of wealth to the State were commensurate with the extrai rdimiry rewards that have resulted to individual enterprise. From this seeming idea a system of government has been instituted, the ordinary copt of which even, when frugally administered must, for many years to come, greatly exceed a revenue the collection of which would be at all tolerable to our people, and has likewise stimulated a plin of extravagant and reckless expenditure, the consequence of which has been to involve the State in a large debt and seriously to impair her cve<lit.;' The funded debt of the State, exclusive ot the Indian war debt, is placed at $3,233,488, upon which we pay an annual interest ol S22(I,7C4. On the gross amount of this debt it is estimated that the State has only realized seventy cents on the dollar. The expenditures for the fiscal year end:ng the 30th of June last, it is stated to have been $1.3(18.- 684, while the receipts only amounted to $723,281), showing a deficiency of $615,394 ! For the year 1855, the total expenditure for the ordinary expenses of the S ate Government of Ohio only amounted to $738,380! The public printing of California, from July 1855 to January 31st, 1856, a period of nineteen mouths, cost the sum of $240," 4691 The salaries of County Judges aud the incidental expense of the Courts of Sessions and the County Courts, are given in the aggregate at $175,000 annually. Although a poll tax is levied wliich should bring into the treasury of the tate a net revenue ol $168.30(1, but $63,000 is pa!d in. Tlie report suggests the abolishing of the oflice ol Superintendent of Public Instruction, office ot Quarter Master General, otfi.e oi County Judge, enactment of a law taxing sales at auction, restricting sessions of the Legislature to sixty days, taxing all lands claimed against the government Saa. It contains no arguments but a few brief suggestions, all of which are loui;d on four pamphlet pages, aud then we come to the tables. The lirsl. is receipts for the fiscal year, showing that Sau Francisco Co. paid $139,846 of the $723,000 collected. The expenditures are next; the Executive Department amounts to $114,000; the Judicial, to $105,000; the Legislative, to $292.0)0 ; for Hospital purposes, $141,163; for Schools, $50,265; for State Prison purposes, $370,174; for Printing, $171.778j miscellaneous expenses, incl i.ling trans oortation of prisoners, prosecuting delinquents, Supreme Court reports, State Agricultural Society, &c, $120,706. The amount of real and personal property assessed for 1856, is given at $95,007,440, on which a State tax of seventy cents on the $100, amounts to $605,315. The taxable propetty ot San Francisco county, is nearly one-third of the entire amount ot the State, being $30,368,000, wilh State taxes of $212 577. The assessments of 1856 nearly doubles that of 1851). and 1851 is the same as 1853, $16,000,000 less that 1854, aud $9,000)000 less thau 1855. The war debt of the State is $1,061,178. The receipts of the present fiscal v ■ ar, are estimated at $753,000, and expenditures $727,000. This, if reliable, indicates a change for the-better, the previous year showing a large deficit. How far the facts will sustain the estimates, remains tobe seen.—Daily Globe, Tbavei,.—Senators Seward of New York and Rusk ol Texas, will, on the expiration of Congress in March, start on a niuc month's tour round the globe. They will pass across the Isthmus by Ni* owrftgtHl, thence to California, thence to the Sandwich Islands, where Senator Seward will deliver an agricultural address, thence to Chica, and, after passing through India and Asia Minor, Egypt, and possibly Southern Europe, will sail through the Straits of Gibralter to the United States, so as to attend Congress in the early part of next The AOantle Telegraph, The following extract from a Liverpool paper shows the extent to which the Atlantic telegraph] maybe Q88d, Most persons will be surprised to learn how limited its powers are I At a recent meeting of the Institution of Civil Engineer at Liverpool, at whieh J. It. Brunei presided, it was stated that from recent experiments upon I.60D miles of subterranean wire, it was clearly demonstrated tbat tbe electric current required an appreciable period of time to arrive ;il ttfl destination, and another longer period to escape from the wire into the earth, and that thiB time increased regularly with the length of the wire. It was also stated, as the result of careful estimates;, that the outside limits at which tele- graph(e signals could be transmitted over theprtt- poscd Atlantic line from Ireland to Newfoundland (allowing the necessary time between each signal for the conducting wire (o become demagnetized.) wuuM t»&hi«m minute, 180 in »»n» hotir. or 11,520 telegraphic signals in one day of twenty- four hours. Therefore allowing the minimiutt of telegraphic signals for each letter at four, (which is practically the average of the Moist and .al| other systems heretofore in nse and adapted to long circuits) it would appear that the u'.niusL capacity of a single wire across the Atlantic, by any telegraphic system heretofore in use, would be limited to 120 letters per hour, or 2,864 letters per day of twenty-four hours. The average number of letters to a word iu the English lauguago is live ; hence the capacity of one liue may, upou the foregoing basis of calculation, be put down at 576 words per day. We undenrtand lhat the Atlantic Company liave decided upon twenty words (including address and signature) as the minimum of dispatches between. New York and Ixmdon, aud the minimum charge of the company will be $20 for the lirst twenty words, aud $1 for each added word. The Last Cent.—The fiat has gone forth. Thero are to be no more copper cents. This wealthy nation, rolling iu "surplus revenue," in a few years will have '"naryared." The cent was proposed in 1782 by Robert Morris, the great financier of the Revolution, and waa named by Jefferson, two years later. It began to make its appearance from the Mint in 1792. It bore then the head of Washington on one side aud a chain of thirteen links on the other. The French Revolution soon after created a rage for L'rencf* ideas in America., wliich put on the cent, instead of the head of Washington, the head of the Goddess of Liberty—a French Liherty, with neck thurst forward and flowing locks. The chain on the reverse was replaced by t\a olive wreath of Peace. But the French Liberty waa short lived, and bo was her portrait on our cent. The present staid classic dame, with a fillet round her hair, caino into fashion about thirty or forty years ago, and her finely chiselled Grecian features have beeu but slightly altered by the lapse ot time. The uew cent is to be one-eighth nickel, and consequently much smaller, and much more convenient. It will be of lighter color when new, though probably as dark when old. A Hying eagle is to take the place of Liberty's bead, in order that it may not be mistaken for the live dollar gold piece.—Albany Bve. Jour. Arrival ok THH CUPP&B Sun* Cheat Rii'uiiuc, —The clipper ship Great Republic, Capt. Lime-- burner, was telegraphed yesterday afternoon from the out- r station of Messrs. R. S. Martin A Son's Marine Telegraph, altera very short passage of ninety days from New York. As soon as the fact was known, the steamtugs Martin White and Hercules were dispatched to tow her up to the city, and crowds of people flocked to the wharves and vicinity around North Beach to obtain a view of her as she came up the Bay; but owing Ic tho tide, she did not get in until sometime after sunset. She made the run from Now York to tho Equator in tbe Atlantic, in tbe remarkably ahcrt space of fifteen days and eighteen hours—thirty hours shorter than the famous trip made by tho clipper ship Flying Cloud, aud tho quickest time on record. She was forty-six days in reaching Cape Horn in fine weather, with skysailfl set. In tact, she is reported to have had moderate winds during tbe whole passage, not having, taken in top-gallant sails since leaving New York, and carrying skysails from tlie River Platte to this port. Crossed the equator in the Pacific, Feb. 17th, in longitude 118, and bad light winds and as to this port. The Great Republic sailed i New York Dec. 7th, at three i*. m., and anchored on the Bar March 9th, at 1:30 r. «. She has a cargo of 4600 tons of assorted merchandise, and is consigned to Messrs. C A. Low &, Co. Her best day's run during the passage was 413 miles. — S. F. Herald. March 12. Inauouk.vtiox Services at Washin«to\.—Extensive arrangements have been made at Washington for the inauguration of Mr. Buchanan as President. The programme has been announced, and lhe exercises wilt be upon a grand scale. Assistant Marshals have been selected from the Stales and Territories. Marysyit.lk Election.—Tlie election at Marysville. resulted in the choice of a Democratic Mayor and six of the twelve Councilmen, whilst the People's party elected the balance of tho ticket. St.reiiiE at Yreka.—Dr. U. R. Uomayne, a physician, committed suicide at Yreka, by taking poison. He was from Clinton, Louisiana. The marble quarry at Ringohl, El Dorado eo.. is about to be worked by Messrs. Gorrand and Titus, who have purchased it. According to tbe I'lacerville Democrat the vein is very extensive, and the maiWe of every variety ot color, and susceptible of a very high polish. Mr. Edward Emory was killed about Bve-ttHen from Murphy's, on the 3d inst., by having Ins hnut caught between a rock and the root of a stump. The Jews in Shasta have organised b society for the purpose of purchasing a lot of ground as a place of burial for members of the Hebrew-faith, according to the rites of their religion. The Rev. Mr. Brooks and Jacob Brown resident? on Salmon river, have been lost in tbe snow, in attempting tbe passage ot the Salmon mountain the past fortnight. I ^ I » * i u
