The editor of the Corinne Re
porter, who has indulged himself
in an sorts oi romantic fancies
about the "Poet of the Sierras,"
had them all rudely scattered to
the winds the other day by a sight
of the poet as he passed through
that place, and thus dsicusses
about this "rude awakening:"
"This genius, and scion of the
melancholy muse, was a passen
ger on the express going east from
here this morning. A glimpse at
Joaquin, accoutered in tangled,
unkempt hair, and habiliments of
feudal cut, to say nothing of his
general get-up, upset many ro
mantic uolions which we have eng
joyed concerning him and his disr
jointed glory. How much mortal
ugliness could be found to flux
with the sweetness of poetry,
'puzzles the will, and makes us
.wish that we had escaped tho,ex
cruciating agoay of looking upon
tha self-rising rhyraster. That
one spectacle knocked the wind
out of all our exaggerated opinions
of the form, shape and features of
Mr. Miller j and, just as when we
first visited a- menagerie, to find
the elephant smaller than sixteen
churches piled .up in a heap, so.
was it to-day, that a thousand
dreamy hallucinations were scat
tered to the four winds of heaven,
by a single peep at the 'bard of the
sigh-ears.' We hope neve r to look
upon him or his like again. Good
bye Jo&quin. Go East and ride
your Pegasus through the corn-,
fields. From and after this date
we'll write-our own -poetry.
