For there he would kneel with the early spring
And plant e'er hia darlinvthe rote: flo were,

To minale with others in fried I tears.

When pouring the balm of relief;
At I art he haa gone to the brigh t spiril-land,
And fiee (ruin all sorrow and pain,

And moss from the silent old mill, (nook,

The hearta that death onlv could chill;
And oft, when the soul haa giown weary and sad,

To muse o'er the spot where together Ben Bolt

Be Gentle to thy Wife.
Be gentle! for you little know
How many trials rise;
Although to thee they may be small,
Te her of giant site.
Be gentle! though perchance thai lip
May apeak a murmuring tone ,
The heart may beat with kindness yet
And joy to ba thine own.
Be gentle! weary hours of pain
' l is woman's lot to bear;
Then yield her what support thou canst,
And all her sorrows share.
Be gentle! for the noblest hearts
At times may have some grief,
And even in a petish word
May seek to fi nd relief.
Be gentle! none are perfect
Thou'rt dearer far than life;
Then hueband , bear and still forbear
Be gentle to ihy wife.

Dear Parents: I am happier and sai-
Jer to-night, than I have been for a long
tune. Happy in receiving the so long looked
lor letter frum home sad to think how great
the distance which seperates me from friends
who love tne so dearly. Hie day hits been so
intensly hot, that I hardly know what to do
with .nyselt. Although we are not in Atnca,
yet one couiu easny imagine so at noon-aay.

gee some of the beautiful horses, coaches,
and private carriages tbry bave here. Al
though the pr:ce ot a livery team, (one horse,;
is 110 or $18 per day, yet we see persons
idinL' continually. We are told thai horses
and cattle increase almost one-third in size
after they come here, the climate being so
well adopted to them.

the gambling houses. They are so large

women deal monte and sanscbanette, and
not hesitate to knock a naa down, if be does

This place contains about 6000 inhabitants
gathered from almost every nation under the

their desire is to make money. Indeed there
are but few private bouses worth furnishing.
There are some tine publio bouses, gambling
houses, and stores, but all the back streets
are composed of little shanties, some entire
ly of cloth, where Chinaman live and take
washing, and where mechanics and workman
do their own cooking their utensils a camp

weather is so mild at night, thai it is quite
pleasant, just to Uka a blanket and lie down
on the ground, as on a bed. and hundreds
have done so ever since tbey came here.
They have a very pretty Methodist chuch
here, and next Sabbath, Charles and I will
attend : five months almost heathenism, is long

sermon. You must not suppose that 1 d

custard pies are scarce in this country.
Oct 12th, It is quite sickly here now,
almost every person baa the fever and ague
indeed il is quite a rarity to tea a person
well and hearty. Charles baa bad It at to
tcrvals, aver siDCe wa cam here. Tbey call
me the 'Hospital aurse.' A Mr. Andersou was
ik bare two days, and I made htm cup
tea, and a little toast a few tiroes, for which
he was desirous to pay me ; but my natural
generosity would not allow me to take any
thing, even in California. This morning he
presented me a beautiful pair of congress

Delia's speaking of the nice things you have
laid up for winter, almost made me homesick.
Dear sisters ; you do not appreciate the bless
ings with which you are surrounded nor can
you, till deprived of them, as I am. Though
we have all that is oecessary for comfort, yet
it is not, can not be like borne where you
have some one to enjoy nice things with you.
I could nevir make up my mind to live per
nancy here, as long as you are all so fat dis
tant. W ben X think of my early borne, it ap
pears the pleasantest one in the world. My
writing in this way must not make you think
that I am either homesick, discouraged or
discontented: far from ill but did I not feel
so sometimes, it would be unnatural, at least
nof fiJre m.
Dinner over I resume my pen. On my
way to the kitchen I met Wii. Pares just
comming in from the Ranch (shaking with
the ague of courae,(and what do you think he
brought me 7 r ive lot. freth butler .(wortb
12 shillings per lb.,) the ham of an antelope,
and six fat quails I I call that a present
worth having, don't you? I made a real
genuine pot pie of the quails the best din
ner 1 have had in Calitornia, and the first
butter I have tasted.
We get almost all kinds of fruit put up in
little cans green corn fresh and nice, peach
es, strawberries, dec. Charles bought a lit
tle can of peaches for tea, holding about a
quart, Tor two dollars. They were yellow,
cut off the pits, and delicious. The only
fresh fruit found here is grapes, very fine,
and pears of an inferior quality. I miss ap
ples very much and often wish I could go in
to the old cellar and help myself.

Our friend George Cook,
is very sick with something like typhoid fever
and we teel quite alarmed about him- It re
quires all Charles' time to see to his wants.
He is sitting up with him to-night. Califor

resented to be. In fact, I believe there are
more sick than well people at present The
weather is quite warm, and so dusty t
Sabbath evecing. I feel very tired, and
vety sad to-night, have been busy nearly
all day waiting on the sick. Mr. Cook is
growing worse, and we begin to despair of
his recovery, some one is playing the live
iest tunes on a violin, in the next house, and
all manner of boistrous sounds greet my ear
trorn the street, reminding me of any thing
e!ese but sabbath evening.
1 wonder how lares the name etrele to

thoughts. I hope well and happy, and hope
is a great controler.
Monday evening. Mr. Cook has been grad
ually sinking through the day, and we have
given up all hopes of his recovery. He is in
sensible to ever) thing around him. Charles
watches beside him with the care of a broth

waiting upon him.
Tuesday. Mr. Cook is no more! I lis
spirit took its flight about nine o'clock last
evening, overwhelming us all with most in

very extennively known, from having been

in the Merchants' Exchange; but no more
than he would have been able to perform.
It was a business to which he looked forward
with pleasure, in which, as well as tbe profits
we expected to share. He bad no relatives
bere yet many kind, warm-hearted friends
watched beside him during his illness, and
administered to every want. He always

Have just entered my pleasant and cheer
ful room, but before retiring, will finish
details of the day. I had been boused
so long, that I thought this afternoon I would
avail myself or a little leisure, and return
few calls of long standing, just to see how
would seem. Accordingly I put on my light
silk, with the other "fixings" and sallied fortb.

some half doaen lady friends. The streets
are awful dusty, and filled with all kinds
eatables that you can imagine i Sacks of p
tatoes, onions, cabbages, beets, turnips, squash

through piles upon piles of these articles, ex

Spaoiards called "Arrirors," either packing
their mules, or guarding their property till
they are ready to do so. Their style of dress
is very peculiar; pants very large I hardly
know how to describe them but imagine

rately the outside seam, from the lower part
of the pocket entirely open; though made to
button up it is never done, lney just leave
them to hang loose and open, showing the
white lining at every step! Then they always
wear a "Sctappa," around them the corner
brought round in front, and thrown over the
shoulder, not showing their arms at all. Add
to this a low crowned black or straw bat and
their costume is complete. The acrappa is a
kind of twitted blanket, woven of the most
brilliant colors; sometimes in small flowers,
but oftener in stripes.
Oh my way borne, I could not resist the
temptation, to buy a little sour apple, though
I paid two bits (2 acts.,) for it 1 could not
help thinking that in my fathers cellar, there
were apples enough and to spare; and here I

to look at her honest rosy face. Her husband
