Arrival of the California Pony express.

Fort Kearney Dec. 28.
--The Pony Express passed this place at half-past 9 o'clock P. M., on the 27th. The following is a summary of the news:

San Francisco, Dec. 15--3.40 P. M.--Sailed M. Southern Cross, Hong Kong, carrying $170,000 in treasure and $67,000 worth of merchandize.

California news for to-day's express is not important.

Judge Baldwin has sent in his resignation as Judge of the Supreme Court, to take effect January 1.

The political rumor finds considerable credence, that General J. A. McDougall, Hon. J. W. McCorkle and Richard P. Hammond, have formed a combination to use their united influence with the Douglas Democracy to elect Hon. Mr. McDougall to the United States Senate this winter, Mr. Hammond Governor of the State next summer, and Mr. McCorkle to the United States Senate on the expiration of Mr. Latham's term. The programme will meet with strong opposition within the Douglas ranks. The two strongest candidates for the Senatorship this winter appear to be General McDougall and General Denver.

The organization of a joint stock company to open the Washoe silver mines is among the most notable features of the times. As often as two or three times per week some company, with a nominal capital stock ranging all the way from $500,000 up to several millions, files articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State, elects officers, and appears to be earnestly preparing to commence silver mining — Some of these comprise men of wealth and character, while many are doubtless stock-jobbing operations.
