DIED - near Lockeford, May 23, 1864, Mrs. Hannah SHAW, wife of Mr. Francis P. HOLDEN, aged 43 years. [Calm and gentle in her life, peaceful and happy in her death, she hath gone to join her little ones, with her dear parents and sisters, in that happy home that the Savior hath prepared for those who, like her, have loved Him here below. May her surviving companion be comforted in the assurance that she hath fallen asleep in Jesus; and may her bright example be imitated by the many friends on this and her native shore, who are left to mourn her loss.]
A FRIEND of the DELACY FAMILY NABBED - According to the Sacramento 'Union' a blacksmith named James GARNETT was arrested in that city on Saturday afternoon last, on several charges of a criminal nature. The officers had been led to suspect that GARNETT was an accomplice of the DELACYs alias DRISCOLL and TAYLOR, who were arrested in this city. For the information of any of our citizens who may have lost jewelry or other articles, we quote from the 'Union:' [list of stuff found]…
In addition to these articles were found a pair of nippers not yet completed - designed for turning keys from the outside, and a number of letters of a suspicious character. The most of these letters are written by G.W. TAYLOR, recently sent to the State Prison from Amador county for robbing Wells, Fargo & Co.'s stage. Some of them were written from Jackson before TAYLOR's trial and appealing to GARNETT to obtain evidence in TAYLOR's behalf. Others were written from San Quentin after TAYLOR's arrival at that place. Some are written over the signatures of George McKEEZ, Geo. SMITH and G.W. TAYLOR, but all in the same handwriting. Others are interspersed with unknown characters and mysterious references and passages, which none but the initiated can understand. The 3 charges entered against GARNETT were burglary, in entering the house of J.T. PIKE; having burglars' tools in his possession, and being a dangerous and suspicious person. This man GARNETT was at the trial of TAYLOR, at Jackson, for the stage robbery, as a witness in behalf of the prisoner; went to the jail where the prisoner was and thrust a small package into the cell and was detected in so doing by officer MYERS and the jailor; he also received a written note through the bars of the cell in a sly and adroit manner, but was detected by officer Myers, who caused the note to be given up. The substance of the note was to post GARNETT what to say in case the prisoner got free on trial for the charge of robbery, and was again arrested on another warrant in the hands of the sheriff of Amador county. It appeared that the prisoner had been made aware that a warrant was awaiting him on the charge of murder. Between ex-officer Myers of this city and the efficient officers of Sacramento an organized band of villains will be broken up and its individual members brought to justice. It appears that GARNETT, being a blacksmith has been of service to the robbers in manufacturing burglarious tools.
LADIES' MEETING - The committee of ladies appointed by the Executive Committee to solicit contributions for the Festival on the Fourth of July for the benefit of the Sanitary Fund, met last Monday evening at the Presbyterian church, and arranged the plan of operations. They divided the city by Wards and appointed sub-committees for each ward, as follows:
-1st Ward - Mrs. T.R. ANTHONY, Mrs. L.M. CUTTING, Mrs. T.R. MOSELEY and Mrs. J.T. MILLS
-2nd Ward - Mrs. S.W. SPERRY, Mrs. E.S. HOLDEN, Mrs. T. PAIGE, Mrs. G.A. SHURTLEFF, Mrs. H.S. SARGENT, Mrs. E.R. STOCKWELL and Miss Lucy GROVE
-3rd Ward - Mrs. W.P. MILLER, Mrs. R.B. LANE, Mrs. H.O. MATTHEWS, Mrs. C. GRATTAN, Mrs. T.K. HOOK and Miss DOOLEY
BURGLARY - Officer McMAHON arrested a man named George HARRIS at about 6 o'clock last evening, charged with burglary in entering a room in the Weber House and stealing an overcoat, pair of pantaloons and a pair of boots belonging to Mr. SISSON. The night previous to the arrest HARRIS was found out late in a partially intoxicated condition, and Officer WILEY took him to the Weber House in consequence of being unable to obtain admittance at the Columbia House, where HARRIS said he was staying. He represented himself as a farmer and had been in the city disposing of about $1000 worth of grain and that he had $800 on his person and was afraid of losing it. Mr. KELLEY, proprietor of the Weber House, offered to lock the money in the safe; but HARRIS would not give it up, intimating his ability to take care of it himself. The theft of the clothes named was traced to him by his making several attempts to sell them. The Police Judge left his residence at 9 o'clock last evening to examine the case; but the officer of the prison being absent with the key of the cell in his pocket, the court postponed the examination until tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock.
DISCHARGED - On a charge made by John R. NORTON against Wm. GARVIN, for assault and battery, the latter was arrested, tried yesterday before Justice BALDWIN and discharged. It appeared that the parties had got into a political squabble and the allegation against GARVIN could not be substantiated.
VISITING PHYSICIAN - Dr. Lorenzo HUBBARD has been appointed Visiting Physician to the Insane Asylum in this city.
