Early California Sosiety.
One of the principle features of
early times was the absolute free
dom of social intercourse between
man and man, and absenco of those
distinctions in society which cause
men to jostle each other in ascend
ing the rounds of its ladder of
crystallized forms, time-honored
conventionalities, affluence and
fashion. Pedigree could not be
proven, even if it were princely
for, where all were strangers to
each other, antecedents necessari
ly began and ended with the as
sumption of the claimant and it
was considered worthless, unless
the presence of manhood sustained
the claim to distinction. Even in
that event, pride forbade the prof
fer of credential. Thus it became
necessary to admit all to the pri
vileges of the best of men until
they proved themselves undeserv
ing; and then the reversed order
of ascent was more quickly taken
than belongs to the custom of re
fined society in old communities.
Whatever the organization of so
ciety in its present order and
general make-up may add in the
way of stimulus to the progress of
mankind,it must be acknowledged
that it is the prolific mother of
more than half the wretchedness
and disastrous failures of its-individual
members. Nothing but bar
barism in an altenative would
justify society as now constituted,
with welth and fashion as the
main elements of success life. A
constant agonizing effort to bt as
miserable as you can seems to be
the warp of our social economy.
It was different in the early
days. The relief which men found
here from the rigid forms of so
ciety the absenco of the gra
duated scale of social influence
was extremely favorable to the
culture of the philosophic 'mood
which renders one contented with
himself and all the world. Re
lieved from the spirit of social in
toxication, one could soberly smile
at the pretty annoyances which
fret the ambition of the aspiring,
from (he cradle to the grave.
None of these disturbed the Forty
nine; and if his food was not at-1
war with digestion, he rtwt' d "
night as peacefully as the new
born babe albeit, if a miner, his
bed may have been upon a snow
bank thirty feet deep, or intrench
ed in a mud-puddle that threat
ened inundation, with an um
brageous oak or towering pine as
shelter from the storm overhead.
All his hardships were of a physi
cal nature; mentally, he was pla
cid; and the situation was so novle
and interesting that he marveled
that so many of the ills of life re
sulted from the very organiza
tion specially created to pre
vent them refined society

Two Heal Crusoes.
The Paris Opinione National
publishes a curious story respect
ing two boys, aged about twelve,
who, fresk from reading of " Ro
binson Crusoe," and tiaed'of the
school and civilized life, had run
away from home to imitate De
Foo's hero in a desert country.
The field they choose for their
adventures had the advantage of
being nearer home than Juan Fer
nandezan island on the Seine,
between Asnieres and Neuilly. A
boat-man was crossing that piece
of waste land a few evenings back,
when he was surprised to see
smoke issuing from a hut in the
ground, and to hear juvenile voi
ces. He soon discovered the eng
trance to a sort of cavern, the open
ing of which had been conceled by
brush-wood, and continuiing his
serch discovered the young tru
amts just as they were preparing
their supper of four potatoes, cook
ing in the embers. They had, be
sides, consisting of four rolls, some
pieces of giugerbread, and a part
of a salavoy; and had also come
prepared to renew their larder by
fishing and hunting, one eontri
.buting a line and hooks and the
other a bow and arrow; with the
latter they said they had killed a
water rat and cooked it. Their
bed consisted of a heap of shav
ing: which they found in a barge
The boys, when questioned, said
they lived in the Avenue deHeui
Iv, and had been on the island for
two day; they wore evidently
tired of this new existence, as
