DIED -- in this city, Nov. 11th, Fredericke, wife of Adam SCHIMMELPFENNIG,
aged 47 years, 2 months, 29 days. [The deceased leaves behind a husband, 6
children and 1 sister (Mrs. L. HANSEL) to mourn her loss, and a large
circle of friends who sympathize deeply with those so suddenly bereft of a
good, faithful wife and a kind and true-hearted mother -- one who had ever
been ready to do good to all alike, and never tired in performing her
arduous and many household duties. Conscious to the last moment, she took
her leave by shaking hands with all present, after which she breathed her
last, quietly and peacefully as if going to sleep, and her spirit took its
flight to another sphere. Blessed be her memory.] [Funeral today at 2
o'clock p.m., from the residence on Weber avenue. Friends and acquaintances
are invited to attend.]

WANTED -- A girl for general housework. Apply at the residence of J.
ROBINSON, Oak street.
CARELESS or MALICIOUS DRIVING -- W.L. DUDLEY, Esq., was crossing Hunter
street from the SW corner of Court House Square to the post office, last
evening about 7 o'clock, when some person driving a pair of horses, one of
which was white, drove rapidly up Main street and turned Hewlett's corner
into Hunter. Mr. DUDLEY saw the team approaching him and tried to avoid
them, but the driver, either through carelessness or malice, drove directly
upon him and knocked him down, and without checking the speed of his team,
drove on as though nothing had happened. Mr. DUDLEY was considerably
bruised, and now offers a reward of $25 for information that will lead to
the identification of the driver of the team.
PETITION -- Samuel MYERS petitions the Board of Supervisors to be
transferred from Castle to the Zinc House School District. The petitioner
sets forth as his only grievance in the premises the fact that the distance

with a poor road; whereas, the distance to the Zinc House district school
is only 3 miles, with a good road.

MARRIED -- in San Francisco, Nov. 14th, in the Church of the Advent, by Rt.
Rev. Bishop KIP; Alexander CAMPBELL to Mrs. Nellie QUINN, all of San Francisco.
SERIOUS ACCIDENT -- Yesterday morning about 9 o'clock Benny ARMINGTON, son
of B.N. ARMINGTON, fell from the top bar of the frame erected on Washington
school play-grounds for gymnastic exercises. It appears that in attempting
to swing by his toes his feet slipped from the bar and he fell, head
foremost, a distance of 17 feet, breaking both his arms above the wrists
and sustaining severe bruises on the head and face. Dr. CLARK was called
and rendered such aid as was necessary under the circumstances. The lad,
though severely injured, will, it is believed, soon recover. His escape
from instant death was miraculous, as the ground where he fell is almost as
hard and compact as a stone pavement.
DEPARTURE -- Mr. Samuel J. HINDS, who for the last 2 years has been reading
law in the office of Messrs. BYERS & ELLIOTT, of this city, last night for
Albany, New York, where he goes to complete his studies at the Law
University. Mr. HINDS has been a close student while here, and from his
uniform urbanity of manner has won many friends, whose kind wishes go with
him to his new field, confidently expecting him to become a credit to the
profession of his adoption.

Agency was returning from Porterville to the reservation, he was thrown out
of a wagon and sustained a very severe injury. One arm was fractured at the
elbow, the ligaments torn, the bone thrust through the flesh and the flesh
badly lacerated. Dr. GEORGE attended him. Dr. BATEMAN arrived at his home
in this city shortly after the painful occurrence. We are glad to learn
that he is in a fair way of speedy recovery.
TULARE -- We take the following from the 'Delta' of Nov. 14th -- We learn

Mary PLEASANT, for harboring and concealing RILEY and the BROTHERTONs after

The testimony of Chief CROWLEY and Detective LEES concerning the escape and
recapture did not differ much from the statements heretofore furnished.
Chief CROWLEY got his information through LEE; the Sheriff got his from
George O'CONNOR, who received a portion of the reward. The Court room was
packed during the hearing, as it was expected that some startling
revelations would be made.

From Yreka, Nov. 15 -- BRUTAL ASSAULT -- Last Wednesday Neil CAMPBELL, of
Crystal Creek saw mill, in Scott valley, was terribly beaten by a man
working for him by the name of Arnold, who assaulted him with a pitchfork,
and after breaking that beat him on the head with stones. Some 5 large ones
were found near CAMPBELL, all covered with blood and hair. He is still
alive though his skull was fractured in several places. There was no cause
for the assault. Arnold is supposed to be insane, having been in the
asylum. He gave himself up and his case is now being investigated by the
STAGE ACCIDENT -- The Marysville 'Defender' of Nov. 13th has the following
intelligence: Yesterday morning, as the Downieville stage was on its way
from this city to its mountain terminus, it met with an accident some 4 or
5 miles from this place, on the Brown's Valley grade. It is still very
dark, the hour being about half-past 3 a.m., and the 6 horses attached to
the coach were going at a lively rate, when suddenly they came upon an old
horse, which had been turned out on the grade by some careless fellow to
die. The high-spirited coach horses shied, turning by the emaciated animal,
throwing the coach from the grade, upsetting it, and besides damaging the
vehicle and injured Mrs. HAYES, one of the passengers, severely. The
driver, Johnny, than whom there is none more careful, jumped on a horse and
returned to the city for help. HANDLIN, one of the proprietors of the line,
immediately repaired to the place of disaster and brought Mrs. HAYES to
town, where every attention was given her.
