IMMENSE WHEAT FARMS.-Everything
seems to be on a grand scale iu Califor?
nia. Tho big trees havo for some time
been classed with the wonders of tho
world. Now they are, according to the
San Francisco Bulletin, rivaled by tho
vast wheat farms. That journal declares
that thero are three wheat farms in the
San Joaquin Valley, with areas respec?
tively of 3G.O0O, 23,000, and 17,000acres.
On the largest of these farms the wheat
crop thia year, isroported to be equal to
an average of forty bushels to the acre,
the yield running up on Borne parts of
the farm to sixty bushels. The product
of thisl farm for the present year, is
1,440,000 bushels. Tho boundary on one
side of this farm is about tvevouteen
miles long. At the season of ploughing, I
ten four-horse teams were attached to
ten gang-ploughs, each gang having
four ploughs-or forty horses, with as
many ploughs wera started at the same
time, thc teams following in closo suc?
cession. Lunch or dinner was served at
a midway station, and supper at the ter?
minus of the field, seventeen miles dis-1
taut from tho starting point. Tho teams
returned on tho following day. The
wheat in tho immense field was cut with
twenty of tho largest reapers, and, wo
believe, has now all been thrashed and j
put in the sacks. It would require over i
forty ships of medium size to transport \
the wheat raised OD this farm to a fo?
reign market. Even tho sacks required
would make a taree hole in tho surplus
money of most farmers. We havo not
the figures touching the product of tho
other two farms; but presume that the j
average is uot much below that of the
first. There are thousands of tons o?
wheat which cannot be taken ont of the
valley this season, and must remain over
as dead capital, or, what is nearly as un?
desirable, will only command advances
at heavy rates of interest.
Says a correspondent of tho London
Telegraph: "The glories of Biarritz, I
find, have departed. When, before her
marriage, the Empress Eugenie used to
visit it, the place was au obscure village
frequented by Spaniards and by the
citizens of Bayonne, who came to have
u dip in the sen. The Empress made it
tho most fashionable watering-place in
France. She built herself a chateau,
carno herself every year with her hus?
band, and drevr in her train half the
fashionables of Europe. With ber de?
parture, however, its sun has set. Tho
fashionable world fins gone elsewhere.
The hotels aro still moderately full, but
they aro filled with Spaniards at d people
from the neighborhood. A great board
before most of the villaB announces that
they are to be sold, and those which are
not to bo sold are to let."
ACUTENESS OF TUE "HEATHEN CHINEE."
The Sun Francisco Bulletin states that a
manufacturer of bird cages and other
ware in that city, a short time since,
thought to enlarge his rovenue by sub?
stituting Chinese cheap labor for the
white workmen be had ia his employ.
The Mongols did well enough at ono
dollar a day, for a short time, until they
mastered the business, when the whole
party resigned aud set up for themselves,
and are now "bearing" the bird cage
market at a fearful rate. Tho author of
this enlargement of their aphere of en?
terprise is prone to believe "we are
ruinad by Chinese cheap labor."

as idols in the temple of friendship and
esteem, shall basely desert tho post of

next day, he came back, and aB shu

other egg to pay for his dinner; and ou
the fourth day, bo brought the old hen

Tho discovery of a new "Mammoth
Care," in Boone County, Kentuoky, is

Now that the press lins become suoh a

Some of tho greatest writers of tho
couutry have confessed to the practice,
on urgent occasions, of taking a sip of
brandy at tho end of every pago or even
oftener. It may have escaped the geno
ral roader's notice that moro men
have died young who have boen con?
nected with tho New York press with?
in ten years, and that, too, from intem?
perance, thau in all the other education?
al callings put together-young men
whose talents have beeu of the first or?
der, and gavo promise of a lifo ol use?
fulness, houor aud eminence. Tho host
possible thing for a man to do, when he
feels too tired to perform a task or too
weak to carry it through, is to go to bed
and sleep a woek, if ho can. This is
only the true recuperation of braiu
power, the only actual renewal of brain
force. Because, during sleep, the brain
is in a sense of rest, in a condition to ro
c?ivo and appropriate particles of nutri?
ment from tho blood which takes tho
place of those which have been con?
sumed in previous labor, since the very
act of thinking consumes, burns up solid
particles, ns every turu of the wheel or
screw of the steamer is tho result of tho
consumption by lire of tho fuel in the fur?
The supply of consumed brain Bub
stauce cnn only bo had from tho nutri?
ment particles in the blood which were
obtained from food eaton previously, and
the brain is so constituted that lt c m
best receive and appropriate to itself
j those nutriment particles during tho
state of rost, of quiet and of stillness in
sleep. Mere stimulants supply uothiug
in themselves; they only goad the braiu,
i force; it to a greater consumption of its
substance, until that substauca has been
so fully exhausted that thorn is not
power enough left to receive a supply,
just as men are so near death by thirster
starvation that there is uot powor euough
left to swallow anything, and all is over.
Tho incapacity of the braiu for re?
ceiving recuperative particles sometimes
comos ou with tho rapidity of a stroke
of lightning, and then tho mau becomes
mad iu uu iustant, loses sense, and is an
idiot. It was under circumstances of
this very sort, in the middle of a sen
teuce of great oratorical power, one of
the most eminont minds of the ago for?
got his ideas, pressed his hand upon his
forehead, and after a moment's silence
s dd, "God, as with a sponge, bas blotted
ont my mind." Be assured, readers,
"There is rest for tho weary" only in
early aod abundant sleep, and wise and
happy are they who havo firmness
enough to roaolvo that "By God's help I
will seek it in no other way."

NEW COAL BEDS.-If tho ooal beds of
tho earth should over become exhausted,
it is possiblo that these BOO recs of supply
may be replaced by new beds rising from
the bottom of tho seas. Indeed, some?
thing of the kind is now actually occur?
ring. The island of Newfoundland,
which contains 57,000 square miles, and
has a population of 100.U0U, is joiued by
banks or shoals much larger than the
island itself. It is on these banks that
tho cod fisheries are so extensively pur?
sued. The Grand Bank is GOO miles
long by 300 miles broad. Now it has
been conclusively shown that the whole
ielaud is rising from the sea, and in the
course of time may be expected to join
the bunks, whioh are also rising. Great
seams of cou], whioh are pronounced in?
exhaustible, havo been discovered in
Newfoundland, and there is no roason to
doubt that those seams also extend under
tho banks. So it appears that in ono
case, at laust, coal beds are now coming
to the surfaco from the depths of the
ocean, and it is not improbable that
similar forties may be producing similar
results in other parts of the world.
A HcMonous MISTAKE.-If thieves
and burglars are gifted with a perception
of the humorous, they mnst have been
immensely amused at the mistake of two
private wutchmen in Brooklyn, N. Y.,
tho other night. Each mistook tho
other for a burglar, und they, therefore,
engaged in a rough and tumble fight,
until ono of them escaped from bis an?
tagonist, and Becking refuge in a station
house, informod the sergeant that ho
hud been beaten by a burglar. The of?
ficer despatched in search of the supposed
burglar found the other private watch?
man bathed in blood, but full of tri?
umph over his discomfiture, of his oppo?
nent. It is difficult to imagine any?
thing which would moro powerfully ap?
peal to the burglar's sense of humor than
the mutual pouuding of one another on
tho part of zealous watchmen. With a
viow, therefore, to interfere with burglari?
ous joy??, and to preservo the integrity of
watchmen's heads, it would be wise to
furnish private watchmen with somo sort
of badge by which they would be able to
recognize one auotber.
Heavens! Let all ladies who wear de?

There is a M. Lindeman who has given

nounces that every huir in a false pluit
ends with "a nodosity;" each nodosity
contains fifty "psorosperms;" and each
psorosperm throws off minute spheres
which become "psoudo-navicelhe." Bat
this is by no means the end of a bad
matter. The psoudo-navicelhe in a ball
room containing fifty ladies, all with the
spurious tendrils, amount to 15,000,000,
which, when inhaled, make their way

The London Times, in connection with
the recent attempt to swim across the
English Channel, says: "Tradition af?
firms that some seventy years ago, three
men convicted of a political offence, to
escape punishment, swam from Calais to
Dover. Ono was drowned, the other two
landed on the beach, one in an utter
state of exhaustion, from which he died;
the third recovered and lived in the town
for several years." The distance across
the channel from Dover to Calais is
abont twenty-two miles, bot the curront
would probably nearly double the dis?
tance for a swimmer.
