Gold and Death.
The recent intelligence from California
confirms beyond a doubt the many expres
sions of apprehension relative to the dark
side of the golden picture. This is but the
beginning of the end, and it is only what
might have been expected from the unnatural
course of events which have taken place on
every point connected with California. Her
wealth, her salubrity, the easy acquisition of
fortune, were all exaggerated. That vast
territory was prematurely born a State of the
Union, and it will only be by the most careful,
patient and prudent nursing, that she will
ever be worth anything. We clip the follow
ing brief but truthful comments from the
New York Star:
" Three millions of gold and a list'of more
than one thousand deaths, are the latest i
portations from California. Let those who
would have gone to the mines lonrr anro, if
they had possessed the means, kneel own
and thank God for their poverty. As yet we
have only the beginning of the end. The
cholera has scarcely yet taken hold of the ill
clad, badly-fed multitudes on the placers, and
the still more squalid horde now approaching
the confines of the mining districts overland.
Wo to those seekers of gold when the pesti
lence shall overtake them in the wilderness.
The spades and mattocks with which they
hoped to exhume the buried treasure, shall be
used for a more mournful purpose, and thou
sands, we fear, will sleen their last sleep, en
tombed among the glittering dust that has lu
red them from home and family.
The misery and suspense of the friends and
relatives of the emigrants, at home, is scarcely
less painful to contemplate than the sufferings
of the gold hunters themselves. The fate of
many of the latter will never be known to those
they left behind. Among the lists of deaths,
the words "stranger" and "unknown" fre
quently occur, and hundreds have died and
will die in that far-off land, of whose decease
not even these annoymous memoranda will
be made. The story of the overland emi
gration for the present year has not been half
told. Thousands are yet struggaling through
the grassless and unwatered pT:ins between
Councils Bluffs and California, as the first
crusaders struggled through the marshes of
Hungary, and their line of march, like that of
the croises, will hereafter be known by the
graves and bleaching skeletons in their track.
MELANCHOL ACCIDENT.-Mr. Thomas
Tart who resided with his mother six miles
from this place, met with n fatal accident on
Christmas day. He had returned from
Charleston but a day or two before, and had
brought with him a ten barrel revolver, as a
curiosity. While engaged in shooting it, a
cap on one barrel exploded without discharg
ing the load, and turning the pistol to examine
it, the ball was shot into his body. He sur
vived until Thursday morning. Ile was much
esteemed by all who knew him and died deep
ly regrette-Marion Star.
MISSISSIPPI AND THE FLAG.-It is stated
that "the Mississippi Legislature refused to
allow the United States flag to wave over the
Capitol, as usual, at its late session." What
of it. They had a right to do so; and we see
no good or suflicient reason why it should
wave over the Capitol of any State. If it is
necessary that the members of a State Legis.
lature, in session, should have a flag to indi
cate their location or that they are in session,
each State House should have the banner of
its own State. It would be more becoming
and appropriate in every way.-Carolinian.
