INDICTMENT OF JUDGE TERRY - The Grand Jury, yesterday, presented an
indictment against Judge Terry, for fighting a duel with the late Senator
Broderick.  The offense is designated, "fighting a duel, with dangerous
weapons, viz: pistols charged the gunpowder and leaden bullets by previous
agreement, and killing his antagonist in said duel, by inflicting upon him
a mortal wound, of which said antagonist died within one year after the
infliction thereof." S.F. Herald 3d

STABBING AFFRAY - On the 23rd ult., a serious affray occurred at a fandango
in the Canada Raymundo in which T. Hays was stabbed and dangerously
wounded, by one of two Spaniards named Therase and Martine.  We have been
unable to learn the particulars, but the affair will soon undergo a legal
investigation.  Mr. Hays still lies very low from the effect of his wound.

THE FAIR

The first Fair of the Pacific Agricultural Society was held on Tuesday and
Wednesday of this week.  The idea was a new one to most of the people here,
and many looked upon it with a suspicion that materially retarded its
progress.

The attendance was much larger than we had expected to see.  During both
days of the fair the town was literally crowded with people.  Buyers, it is
true, were scarce, but this we expected, everything must have a beginning.

A list of the entries at this fair, very nearly or quite complete was
published in our last and it would be a work of supererogation to repeat
it.  Suffice it to say, that nearly all the articles and stock entered,
were on the ground at an early hour on Tuesday morning.  There were in all
some four hundred head of horses, mules and horned cattle, most of which
were for sale, and some of which were descended from, and either cross or
full blood of, the very best stock in California.

The products of the farm were not numerous, yet we noticed some fine
pumpkins, potatoes and corn exhibited by Mr. R.J. Weeks, and some extra
fine corn by Mr. Roberts.  Some fine specimens of the sugar beet were
exhibited by the last named gentleman and by Mr. M.L. Brittan - this root
should be much more extensively cultivated for stock-feed. These fairs are
also a good place to get ideas about other matters, as well as
stock-raising; for instance, Mr. Brittan exhibited two or three very simple
yet effective contrivances, in the shape of traps, for catching squirrels,
those pests of this valley.  Mr. B. says that none of these traps are
patented, and any farmer may use them who has a mind to get them up.  A
single glance at any one of them would satisfy the most skeptical of their
utility and superiority.

Most of the fruit exhibited was that entered by Mr. Slartzer of Santa
Clara.  He exhibited fifty-five varieties of apples, and one or two of
pears, all fruit raised by himself.  M. L. Britton exhibited two varieties
of apples, and some grapes, raised here near Redwood City.  Mr. B. has a
fine young orchard from which he is already beginning to realize
handsomely.  Col. Warren exhibited some dozen varieties of very choice
fruit from Oregon.

On the whole, we think the display made a highly creditable one, and that
the Society may well free proud of the success of their first effort.

The new schooner, Dashaway, will be launched on Thursday or Friday next.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL RETURNS - Already the returns begin to come in from the
several school districts of the county, we notice an increase in the number
of families, that in every precinct thus far reported, there is a very
considerable increase in the number of children entitled to share in the
distribution of the public moneys.  The returns are all in from the Third
District, and from them we learn that there are in the District two hundred
and sixty-nine children between the ages of four and eighteen years.  Of
these, one hundred and forty-two are boys, and one hundred and twenty seven
girls.  These are attached to the several schools as follows: Woodside, one
hundred and twelve; West Union, seventy-two; Redwood City, eighty-five.
There are in the district eighty-four children under four years of age.
The total number of children in the district, who were born in California,
is one hundred and eighty-one.  At different periods during the year, one
hundred and sixteen pupils have attended the public schools, and the
average daily attendance has been sixty-eight.

ANOTHER WARNING - John J. Jenkins, for the murder of J. McCarthy; and Thos.
Elder, for the murder of Machael Myers, were hung in Quincy on Friday, Oct.
28th.  They each confessed the crime for which they were to be executed.
Strong drink was given as the cause.

TERRIBLE INCREASE OF INSANTIY - Yesterday four men were arrested as
lunatics, in this city.  The majority of person so taken in charge are
laboring under religious excitement, and are generally harmless.  Most of
them are strangers, and it is a fair opinion to suppose that they are sent
from the country by their friends in order that they may be taken care of
by strangers.  If the same state of things continues it will, in a short
time, require more than one Stockton to contain the insane of our State.

COUNTY COURT - This Court was opened on Monday last.  Very little business
appeared upon the calendar.  In fact, this court has had but little
business for the year past.  The case of Valencia vs. Treat, a forcible
entry case, appealed from Judge Maxson's Court, was tried before a jury and
resulted in a verdict for defendants, when the court adjourned till Friday.

COURT OF SESSIONS - This Court convened on Wednesday, Fox, Judge, Ames and
Clark Associates.  Grand and Trial Juries were in attendance, but being no
business ready for the latter, it was discharged until Monday next.  The
Grand Jury was organized, Hon. D.W. Connelly as foreman, - charged by the
Court and proceeded at once to business.  At eleven o'clock yesterday, the
Grand Jury came into court and presented eight indictments, asked for an
attachment for some defaulting witness, after which they adjourned over
until Monday at twelve o'clock.

Saturday Morning, November 19, 1859, Vol. 1 No.33

COURT OF SESSIONS - Pursuant to adjournment this court opened on Monday and
proceeded with business as follows:

In the case of The People vs. Jose Roderigues, a demurrer to the
indictment was entered, which being overruled, the defendant plead not
guilty and was place upon his trial which resulted in a verdict of guilty
of the charge alleged in the indictment, grand larceny, with a
recommendation to mercy.  This prosecution was for the stealing of two yoke
of oxen from Geo. Dale, in August last.

The People vs. James Riley, indictment for grand larceny in stealing
sundry articles from the residence of Daniel Lunt, in August last, after
disposing of various preliminary motions the defendant plead not guilty.
On Tuesday the case was tried, and the jury brought in a verdict of guilty.

The People vs. M.H. Lowt.  This defendant was indicted for an assault, and
upon his trial was acquitted.

On Wednesday morning, motions for new trial and in arrest of judgment,
were made in Riley's case, both of which were overruled, and the court
sentences him to the State's Prison for two years.

In the case of Roderigues, a motion in arrest of judgment was made and
overruled   On being called for sentence, he made a statement in Spanish,
which was translated by his counsel, Hon. W.B. Maxson, admitting that he
did drive away the cattle as proved, but claiming that it was not done for
purposes of gain, but to punish Dale for certain injuries - which were
stated, but which being of a family nature, we shall not repeat - and that
he sold them for a low price so that Dale might get them back without the
payment of a large sum of money.  The statement altogether was much in
keeping with Spanish character and notions, and the prisoner having
heretofore borne a good reputation, and having been recommended to the
mercy of the court, the court sentenced him to one year in the State
Prison.  In the matter of the defaulting Grand Jurors, for whom attachments
were served last week, they all appeared in person, or sent their excuses.
In every instance but one the excuse was sickness, and was accepted.  In
that one instance the excuse was carelessness and over-sight, which being
deemed insufficient, the juror was fined twenty-five dollars.

On Monday afternoon the Grand Jury reported one other indictment, and
having no further business before them, were discharged.  On Wednesday, at
eleven o'clock, the court adjourned over till Friday, the 25th inst. at 10
o'clock.

Deputy Sheriff Hovius on Wednesday last left for San Quentin, having in
charge James Riley and Prudencio Roderigues, sentenced to imprisonment in
the State Prison by the Court of Sessions.

COUNTY COURT - On Friday of last week, in this court, the case of Vidal vs
Feliz was tried before the court without a jury.  The court took the case
under advisement, and on Tuesday rendered judgment in favor of defendant
for thirty dollars.  The court stands adjourned until Saturday the 26th
inst., at 12 M.

EMPTY - The jail of out County is once more empty and its doors stand
unbarred.  The present term of the Court of Sessions has emphatically dried
up that institution, and relieved the county of a considerable bill of
expense.

SOLD OUT - We learn that ex-Sheriff Ackerson has sold his place to Capt. E.
Beale, and is about to remove to his ranch near Monterey.

FOR TRIAL - The case of Webb vs Diller, et. al, in the U.S. Circuit Court,
an action of trespass against Supervisor Diller for removing a fence which
had been constructed across the Whippple Mill road, is set for trial on
Wednesday next.

CHANGES - We notice among other changes which have taken place that Chew &
Hilton have completed their splendid new brick shop, and commenced
operations in it.  They no doubt will find this more convenient, but we
doubt whether it can improve their hitherto excellent work any.  Messrs.
Heller & Co. are now occupying their large, new livery stable, in addition
to their old establishment.  They can now accommodate fifty horses.  Mr.
Ernest has also found it necessary to make a change in his business, and
during the rainy season, will run his stage only one way each day, as will
be seen by reference to his advertisement.

SCHOOL RETURNS - The returns from Districts Nos. One and Two are now in.
>From the report in District No. One there appears to be one hundred and
eleven children between the ages of four and eighteen, about equally
divided between boys and girls.  There are forty-six children in the
district under four years of age, and one hundred and three of all ages
born in California.  Only twenty-three attended school during the last
term, and the average daily attendance was a fraction over thirteen.
 In the Second district there are one hundred and seventy-five between four
and eighteen years of age - ninety-nine boys and seventy-six girls;
eighty-four under four years of age, one hundred and forty-five of all ages
born in California; nineteen attending school, with an average daily
attendance of twelve.

MORE SILVER DISCOVERED IN CARSON VALLEY - The Placerville Observer of
Saturday is informed by its correspondent that new and rich discoveries are
made on the other side of the mountains.  Brazil, Mexico and Peru, that
have so long supplied the world with the beautiful and precious metal, are
now surpassed.  The great American nation now owns the richest mines in the
world of all the needful and precious minerals.

DISCHARGED BECAUSE HE WOULD NOT "COME DOWN" - Officer Gay, one of the most
efficient men on the Sacramento Police, has been dismissed.  He got his
"walking papers" because he would not submit to an assessment of $10, at
the last election, for party uses.  Mr. Gay was engaged in the killing and
capturing of the highwaymen who attacked the Todd Valley stage the other day.

SUDDEN DEATH - A man named James Bennett, entered a saloon in Sacramento,
on Thursday evening sat down in a chair, and in a short time was seized
with congestive chills and breathed heavily.  Before medical assistance
could be procured, the man died.

A NEW TELEGRAPHIC COMPANY - Mr. Bee has made arrangements to open a
telegraph office at Strawberry Valley, to accommodate the traveling public,
which will be of great importance to persons crossing the mountains.

MORTALITY AMONG CHILDREN - Scarletina and putrid sore throat are prevailing
among the children of this city to a fearful extent.  These diseases seem
to be very virulent and fatal.  -Call

MASONIC - The members of California Lodge No. 1, F.A.M., celebrated the
Tenth Anniversary of the introduction of Masonry into California, at their
Lodge Room on the 15th inst.

MEXICAN DOLLARS - The bark Adelaide, which arrived at San Francisco on
Sunday night, from Mazatlan, brought 152,992 Mexican dollars.

OVERLAND MAIL - More than 5,000 letters were sent 14th inst., by the
Overland stage.  About 150 were way letters.

The claims of Henry Combuston, to eleven square leagues of land in
Sacramento Valley, was on Wednesday rejected by Judge Hoffman, of the U.S.
District Court.  The principal ground on which the decision was made, was
that the applicant, at the time the grant was authorized, was a foreigner.
The Judge says: "I have thus, in obedience to the injunction of the Supreme
Court, inquired into and scrutinized this case with great care as to the
authority of the Governor to make the grant and the bona fide of its
exercise.  The result of that inquiry is, that the grantee was a foreigner,
and does not appear to have been naturalized.  Nor does it appear that the
express license of the Supreme Government was obtained.  The Governor,
therefore, had no authority to make the grant.  The claim must be rejected."

FROM THE NORTH
The steamer Columbia arrived on Sunday.  The latest papers from Oregon are
of the 8th; Crescent City, of  9th; Humboldt Bay, of the 5th.

The new Sim-il-ka-meen mines are exciting considerable interest.  The
members of the Bundary Commission, who are now at Portland, corroborate the
first report relative to their richness.  All fo them have more or less
dust, and from all that can be gathered from the employees there can be no
doubt that the diggings are extensive.  Prospects have been made five miles
each way from the bar on which the gold was first discovered, and 50 cents
to the pan has been the yield.

George Allen, one of the engineers of the steamer Belle, was accidentally
downed at Portland on 4th November.

SILAS HOVIOUS
Sheriff and Collector, San Mateo County
Dated, Redwood City, November 19th, 1859
 ************************

A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN REDWOOD CITY - It gives us please to state that
arrangements are in progress by which Redwood City will shortly be in
possession of a Catholic Church.  A donation of a lot of ground has been
made by S.M. Mezes, Esq., upon which to erect the building, and it is the
intention of those who have take the matter in hand, to commence it as easy
in the coming Spring as possible.  It will be built by subscription.  The
block of ground donated for the purpose, is Block 4, Range C, situated
northeast from the county courthouse, and is but one block distant from it.
 The deed for the land is given to Archbishop J.S. Allemany, of San
Francisco, in trust for the Roman Catholic Church of California.

GOOD STOCK FOR SALE - The attention of those desiring to purchase good live
stock is directed to the advertisement in another column, of Wm. Reynolds,
Esq., near Mayfield.  Mr. R. is well known as a stock raiser, and
purchasers may rely upon their obtaining animals from him which are worth
the purchase money.

With the above mentioned stock the celebrated bull "Prince," was lately
advertised to be sold.  We learn that he is now in the hands of Capt. E.
Beale, of this town.  This animal is only two years old, and weights
eighteen hundred and forty pounds, as we are informed by the owner.  It is
the intention of Capt. B., the coming season, to enable farmers to improve
their horned cattle and other stock at a much lower rate than they have
heretofore paid.

ARREST OF JUDGE TERRY - Judge D.S. Terry, says the San Joaquin Republican,
has been arrested by Sheriff O'Neal upon a bench warrant from the County
Judge of San Mateo county, on the charge of fighting a duel with D.C.
Broderick in that county.  He gave bail in the sum of $5000.

HOME SUMMARY
Henry Shipley, well known in connection with the California press,
committed suicide on the 17th inst., in Sacramento, by taking strychnine.
The Republican says a gentleman in the vicinity of Stockton commenced two
years ago with five hives of bees, and has since sold ten thousand dollars
worth.
A sale of stock took place on Monday, near Stockton.  The animals were far
from being in good condition.  Milch cows and calves sold at from $35 to
60.  Fifteen two-year old steers $25.25  Twelve one-year old heifers and
calves $17.75  Ten two-year old heifers $25.25  Twelve steer calves, $10
Ten dry cows, and a bull $27
The French ship Chatilon, at San Francisco, will take for Australia in a
few days, 8,000 sacks of wheat.
The vintage crop of Los Angeles is very light this year.
Another discovery of silver ore has been made in the southern county, which
is said to be of extraordinary richness.  The location is in the vicinity
of Bear valley, about one hundred miles from Los Angeles.
The Republican Convention of San Francisco met on the 18th inst. when the
following names of candidates were presented for the office of State
Senator; Chas. Watrous, Leonidas Haskell, Nathan Porter, J.A. Banks, and
F.B. Folger.  The convention then adjourned to meet last evening.
The Pacifica and Atlantic Telegraph Company are rapidly extending their
line, and in a few days Los Angeles will be in instant communications with
San Francisco.
Petitions are in circulation in Sierra to create out of that and adjoining
counties the proposed county of Alturas.
Lieut. Gen. Scott left for the east on the steamer John L. Stephens, 21st.
On his departure he was saluted by the First California Guard, San
Francisco, with fifteen guns, the number due his rank.
The amount in the State Treasury at the close of business Nov. 19th, was
$575,744.16.

DISTINGUISHED DEPARTURE - The fine, new schooner "Dashaway," of whose
movements we have kept the public pretty well posted of late, was liberated
from her bridge-bound condition on Tuesday last, by enlarging the aperture
through which ordinary-sized vessels have hitherto passed, and was hauled
down the creek, preparatory to being taken to San Francisco to be furnished
for sea.
