DIED -- in this city, on Monday, Sept. 22, John SMITH, formerly of
Mexico, Audrian county, Missouri. His funeral was attended by the
Masonic fraternity, of which he was a member. Missouri papers please copy.
ARRESTED -- Our Chief of Police received a telegraphic dispatch
yesterday from Sacramento, authorizing him to arrest one W. PIERCE on
his arrival in this city by the Sacramento stage, and Officer
RATHBONE was on hand and took the person and escorted him to the
jail. We are not informed of the offence which is charged against Mr.
PIERCE, though rumor has it that it is for treasonable conduct.
We are informed since writing the above, that a dispatch was also
received yesterday, from Suisun, stating that PIERCE had shot a man there.

-Mr. H.S. SARGENT, auctioneer, will sell tomorrow at auction, the
lot, 50 by 100 feet, on the corner of Weber Avenue and Sutter street,
together with the buildings thereon; comprising a 2 story dwelling,
fronting on the Avenue, and a 1 story cottage, fronting on Sutter street.
-Mr. W.B. FOWLER will sell at auction, on the same day, 60 hives of

DEATH -- Coroner BOND informs us that James STEVENS, who was so badly
injured by the overturning of one of Pentland's circus wagons on
Tuesday, some 3 miles from this place, has since died.
-The house of Louis HADLICK, a mile from Hornitos, Mariposa county,
was destroyed by fire on Tuesday evening. The flames spread with such
rapidity that everything in the way of furniture within the house
except the 2 trunks of clothing, was destroyed. An infant was taken
from a burning bed only in time to save its life after receiving a
severe burn in the arm. The property was estimated to be worth $3000
and was insured by McLean & Fowler, San Francisco, for $2000.
-On Wednesday morning the store-house of Judge MAYER, at
Copperopolis, containing flour and groceries, was destroyed by fire.
Judge MAYER lost papers in the fire, valued at $2000.
PAINFUL ACCIDENT -- A man named Henry W. COOLIDGE, foreman of the
Marysville Foundry, had his hand caught in a lathe, Sept. 20th, and
was obliged to have a middle finger amputated.
A MURDER CASE -- Joseph A. OLIVER, who killed his wife, Jane OLIVER,
in Merced county last July, was on the 30th of Sept. convicted at
Snellings, before Judge Burke, of murder in the 2nd degree and
sentenced to 30 years in the State Prison. OLIVER is a native of
Newbern, N.C., and is 34 years of age. His wife was but 19 and we
believe it was in a fit of jealousy that he killed her.
>>FRIDAY, 3 OCT 1862<<
REV. D.A. DRYDEN -- This gentleman, who has so faithfully served as
pastor in the Methodist Episcopal Church of this city during the past
2 years, and who has been directed by his Conference to San Jose,
will leave us for his new field of labor next week. Before going, and
on this (Friday) evening, he will deliver a lecture in the church of
his Congregation on the theme, "The Final Conflict." After the
lecture a collection for his benefit will be taken up, and it is to
be hoped that one who has so faithfully served in his calling and is
so well beloved by those who knew him best, will be honored with a
large and liberal audience on the occasion. As a lecturer, Mr. DRYDEN
is eloquent, fearless and instructive, and his subject affords scope
for the exercise of all his powers.
