Later from California. New York, Dec. 13. --Dates from Fort Kearney, Cal., to the 1st inst., are received here. Secession was the all-absorbing question which agitated the public mind there. Several Breckinridge papers were publishing carefully written articles favoring the Pacific Republic, although they commanded little attention. The Republican journals were urging the appointment of a Californian to a seat in Lincoln's Cabinet; also, a change in the Judiciary system so that the U. S. Supreme Judge might preside at the Circuit Courts on the Pacific Coast.
$20 reward. --Ran away on Saturday, the 3d inst., from the employment of Dr. John B. Eastham, of Louisa county, a Negro man, named Ralph, belonging to the estate of Jesse Perkins, dec'd. Ralph is about twenty-two years of age, black, about five feet five inches high; one of his front teeth is out, and the rest are very broad and white. No peculiar mark about him is remembered, but we think he has a scar between his fore finger and thumb on one of his hands — can't say which. He, it is said, can write a good hand, and is probably making his way to a free State.--The above reward will be paid for his apprehension in the State and delivery to us, or being placed in a jail so that we get him; or, if taken out of the State and delivered to us, or placed in a jail in this State, so that we set him, a reward of $100 will be paid. Wm. Crawford, John R. Quarles, Frank T. West, Ex'ors of Jesse Perkins, dec'd. Trevillian's Depot, Louisa co., Nov. 12th 1860. no 14--ts
Mysterious operation at a post office. The Cecil (Md.) Democrat says that on the night of the 4th instant, a stranger arrived at Charlestown, in that county, with four boxes, containing thirteen thousand letters, all stamped, which the stranger assisted the Postmaster in mailing to their several destinations. The Democrat says that the proceedings have excited a great amount of curiosity.
$200 reward. --Ranaway from the subscriber, on the 6th inst., my Negro Man, William Munroe, 28 years old; about 5 feet 6 inches high; stout; well built; color black wore a scraggy beard; small eyes, and has the peculiarity of not looking you in the face whilst speaking. Supposed to have forged passes or free papers. He may be in the city or lurking about my plantation on the Chickahominy, in Henrico. The above reward will be paid for the apprehension and conviction of the white man who is supposed to have enticed him away; $100 if arrested and delivered on board a vessel or out of the State; $20 if arrested and delivered in the city or adjoining county. Robert F. Morriss, Franklin street. de 12--6t
A Burglar losing his Booty. --At an early hour on the morning of the 6th inst., a police officer of New Orleans, La., walking in the street, met a young man staggering along the raised sidewalk under what appeared to be a large and heavy bag. The officer approached him, when the man threw the bag upon him, bearing him to the ground, and escaped. When the officer recovered himself he found the bag contained fifty-six pieces of heavy silver plate, an opera glass, and, other valuables, worth over $3,000, which had been stolen.
Ten dollars reward. --Ranaway from my residence, on Friday, the 7th instant, my Negro Boy, Winston. He is a dark mulatto, about 17 years old, a little cross eyed and very well grown. He wore a blue roundabout jacket, black silk vest and black jeans pantaloons, with a slouched hat considerably worn. I will pay the above reward for his return to my house, or to the Cary Street Jail. John C. Sinton. de 12--3t*
Later from Utah. St. Louis, Dec. 10. --The correspondent of the Republican, from Salt Lake City on the 16th ult. announces that the Utah Legislature met in special session on the 12th, for the purpose of acting on a law respective to the Federal judicial districts, appointing the time for holding the courts of the Territory, and providing the necessary funds.

Reformatories and Diminution of crime. At the first meeting of the London Statistical Society, held on the 20th, Mr. Baker, of Hardwicke Court, Gloucestershire, read a paper on criminal returns, his object being to show that the general decrease of crime from the year 1856 to 1859 was principally to be attributed to the establishment of reformatories in all parts of the country. It appears that the number of commitments of every kind has diminished in the four years included in the returns, from 113,736 in 1856, to 107,172 in 1859, notwithstanding there is now greater activity in the police, and, consequently, a greater number of detections. With respect to juvenile crime, it has fallen steadily from 13,981 in 1856 to 8,913 in 1859, being a reduction of 5,068, or 36 per cent, while the adult crime has fallen steadily from 99,755 to 98,159, or 1 ½ per cent.
Secession movement at the South. letter from Ex-Gov. Wise--"Fighting in the Union"--the resignation of Secretary Cobb, &c., &c. Position of Ex-Gov. Wise. Ex-Gov. Wise, of Va., having been written to by a gentleman of Columbus, Ga., to define what he means by "fighting in the Union," replies as follows: Rolliston, near Norfolk, Va., December 1, 1860. Dear Sir: Yours of the 22d ult. Was late coming to hand. I now thank you for it. As to my doctrine of "fighting in the Union," it is one of true policy: 1st. If a sovereign State is judge of the infraction as well as of the mode and measure of redress, she may remain in the Union to resent or resist wrongs as well as do so out of the Union. 2d. If other States have infracted the Union, not she, the State wronged, is bound to defend the Constitution and Union against those who have infracted the one and threatened the other. Logically the Union belongs to those who have kept, not to those who ha
