A High Trfc and Tall Story.?A
California correspondent of the Salem

V/Uiunei irrnpie /eODeis, formerly of;
Lewiston /'alla, cut n tree of tlio
redwood species in in California which
was two hundred nnd fifty four feet high,
and measured at the top I wo feet in diameter,
and at the butt twelve feet in diameter;
the tree was worked into lumber
one hundred and forty feet from the butt,
w ere it measured five feet in dameter.
There was mude from this giant of the
forest one hundred nnd ten M shingles; '
six clipboards; four thousand feet 3 |
by 4 joist, twenty-two feet long; and there !
was left, nt n moderate calculation, from '
seventy to eighty cords? of wood, 'l'he ,
clayboiirds were sold for $500 per M, 1
the sbingloa for $35 per M. the joist for j
$375 per M, nnd the remaining part of,
the tree would readily sell in Si\n Fran- j
cisco ior urewoou, at $40 per cord; thus
nt a safe estimation, there was derived
from the working of this mammoth dweller
of these primeval forests, the neat little
sum of eleven thousand three hundred
and fifty dollars.
Inrtbilili/ of Tr/norctncc.?How many
men. rich in physical energy, stand with
folded and idle hands, because they are
poor in knowledge! Tell such a man |
wlvit lie should do, nnd he is road)' and
willing to net. He is uncertain, because !
be cannot make out which of two plans
he should choose. He is negligent, only
because he is ignorant of what lie ought
to do, or of how it may best he done. Or
if, in his physical impaiience, such u man
rushes forward, ho fails to rcach his nim,
he is deficient in tho materials for successful
action. How oiten dn wa son
energy of one illy or wrongly directed,
because lie knows too little of what he
engages in, while, under the guidance of
knowledge, another is observed to be a
sure stride in advance.
Extensive Larceny.?On the nijfht of
tho 7th ult., the house of Mr. William
JVontgomory, of Vann'a Valley in this
county, was entered and a trunk containing
the rise of seven thousand dollars in
cash, besides notes and paper? to the
amount of three thousand dollars carried
The trunk was discovered at some distance
from the house, but robbed of all
its valuable contents.
Several negroes were taken up, and on

The Poet Wordsworth.?A private
letter from Ambleside, March 25.informs
tho Now York Literary World of the
dangerous illness of the poet Wordsworth.
"Before you receive this," is the language
of the letter, "Mr. Wordsworth i
will have recovered or died?he is very
ill to-day, and it is my impression that
we are to lose him soon." The poet was
born on the 7th ol April, 1770, consequently
he would complete his eightieth
year this present month.
