A New Volcano In California.
The Shasta (Cal.) Courier relates tho fol
lowing: "In tho easterly slope of Iron
Mountain, and about a quarter of a milo
from its summit, may bo seen a small col
umn of smoke rising. At night, near the
surface of the mountain, the vapor has a
lurid appearance, as if partaking of fire. It
was noticed some, ten days since by some In
dians, and a party of two or tliree of them
Visited the place, thinking to find a pros
pecting party there, from whom they would
naturally get chemuck enough to pay them
for their trouble. The reader may judge of
their surprise on finding that tho smoke was
caused by no human agency. Alarmed, they
fled to a cabin inhabited by a solitary miner,
distant some two miles. The miner, our in
formant, believing he had enough of daylight
for the trip, took one of tho Indians as a
guido and sallied forth, armed with a trusty
rifle and followed by a dog iu whose fighting
capacity and pluck he had unbounded
confidence. The buu had nearly dropped
from the horizon when our friend arrived at
his destination. lie thus describes the scene
" 'When I got there I found the smoke
rising, just as the Injin said. It came up out
of a fissure in tho rocks that was about three
inches wide and six or eight feet long. The
smoke is hot and Smells sulphury. It couldn't
havo been going on smoking that way long,
or I should have heard of it; and what's
more, the dead critters I see laying around
there would all have been scattered. Why,
fjap'n, there was rattlesnakes enough laying
there dead to fll.1 a two-bushel bag. And
these little owle and ground squirrels, thick
er'n crass. There wasn't nothing- lav'n
roand like larva nor cinders, nor nothing of
that kind. I te!l von what. f!onrL T think
I something has ketched afire down in there
by by (we suggested 'spontaneous com-
Dusuon. i xes, mats 11 spontaneous Dila
tion, and it's just found a chimney ready
made, or we'd had on earthquake; and all
them dead things was living in that crack.'
" Iron Mountain presents every evidence
of having been the sceno of volcanic erup
tions." General Nlierninn,
no cannot help but be amused at the naif
hynnorous way in which, though the liuvoOpf
ar Is visible on evcrv slue, sontnern neonl
cfer their individual losses, and thedisiointe

"No; Mr, Sherman "

"Is thero a grist-mill near your place t"
"No; Mr. Sherman "
Or you walk tho streets with somo new ac

in so many houses.
"Yes; Mr. Sherman "
Acquaintances mounted on sorry horses
meet, try to laugh at each other's Ilosinantos.
"Well, you know, Mr. Sherman"
The popular idea of Sherman is of a being
In whom are combined the fantastic and the
terrible; a man with the courage of Hector,
tho activity ol a harlequin, the sleeplessness
of a ucazel, the persistence and power of a
steam engine, and tho fury of the "dread
Chimera." They believe that ho lives on
brandy, and curses and swears and gives or
ders day and night. "Sleep!" Bald a roan at
whoso house the Uencral made his headquar
ters; "I tell you I don't believe the man ever
sleeps." To them Gen. Sherman is like
"Folker, the Fiddler," told about in tho
"Nibclungen Lied," the drawing of whose
mighty fiddlestick set everything about him
to dancing iu fire and blood. "Grant," they
sav. "is a regular old Donnder and a irentlo-
mon; but Sherman Oh, Sherman is just
well, he's just Sherman."
If their idea of Sherman is distorted and
unjust, their ideas of other men and manners
generally In tho North aro tar more bo, anu

otherwise bo a dcsirablo neighbor, in a fever

and has hitherto been a curiosity only ; but
an ingenious person in Melbourne, who has
a Yankee faculty of adapting mcuns to ends,
(anu tno hinder emi oi too Kongaroo is very
Fiowcrful,) has made cf theso animals a tuo

Is a market gsr,uener near rortianu, mauo a

use of which ho gets useful labor at small

II Us striking fact that the number of
Young men prominently connected with the
New York press, as writers Is greater now
man at any lormer period. Although the
editors-in-chief of several of the leading
metropolitan journals are veterans, yet the
chief editorial work in these journals Is done
by men between the years of twenty-five and
forty. William Cullen Dry ant idles when he
pleases, leaving Charles NordhofX and Au
gustus Maverick to edit the Evening Pott.
Horace Greeley hi I iko a father among- sons
in the Tribune office. It ia true. Sidnev
Howard Gay, lately the managing editor of
thai journal, u on tne shadyjide or lire, yet
he has just gone off to the White; Mountains
in search of the lost sunshine, leaving John
Ilussell Young to be his brilliant successor.
George Itipley, the ripe literary critic, is on a
wedding-tour in Europe, leaving his pen to
George W, Smalley, who a few years ago
was rowing boat-races for the glory of Yale
College, and who first made his literary rep
utation by Us masterlr report in the TH.
lune of the" battle 'of Anfetim.TJ already
ono of tho ablest writers, as he is one of the
noblest men, connected with the American
Ercss. Then, too, in the same office, are
larcnce Cook, waging war against all bad
pictures and some good ; Kdwin II. House
and William Winter, dramatic critics ; Na
than Urner and Kane O'Donncl, compara
tively new arrival, in uoinam ; ivioert JJ.
Itichardson and Julius II. Ilrownc, who
came very near being made old by Castle
Thunder and Salisbury prison; and Prof.
Schcm, who would have been young enough
to mention if this article had been written
ten vcars aco.
The Timei, In the absence of Henry J,
Raymond (who is just finding out how much
less influential his congressional chair is than
bis editorial,) is conducted by Franklin J.
Ottarson a gentleman who, we believe, is
never remembered to have been young, but
who Is the kindest of editors to juvenile ap
plicants with manuscripts : for we hsnnen to
know of a youngster whoso first piece of
ucpuajni niituig . ancpicu luiupriuteu
by Mr. Ottarson, then city editor of The Tri
bune. Hut all the rest of The Times men,
we believe, are young Stillman S. Conant,
tho two Swintons, Kdward Seymour, Henry
J. Winscr, and the rost though wo believe
we ought to except Mr. Morrison. In The
Herald, James Gordon Dennett, junior, is
learning his father's trade of newspaper man
agement: but we aro unable to say whether
or not his youthful pen Is yet a cotnpetent
master of that elegant and Addisonian Kng
lish wherewith the editorials of The Herald
so charm the Xorth American Review.
Manton Marble, chief editor of the World,
is a gentleman whose politics aro very bad,
but whoso editorship is very able. George
William Curtis, the editorial writer of liar.
per't Weelly, is not tho youngest of young
men, out we trust tne years win ue many
before he shall grow old. The Xatwn it ed
ited by E. U Godkin and Wendell Phillips
Garrison, both young men. Mr. Sweetser,
of tho Itound Table, wo take to be a rather
oldish and mellowed man, judging from the
swccUtcmpcred, humane, and serene tone
with which his columns usually refer to his
editorial neighbors. As to Ilayard Taylor,
Itichsrd 11. Stoddard, Grant While, and Jo
seph Barber, we ore a little doubtful of their
ages, uuiwo give mem mo Deneribor the
doubt. Edmund C. Stcdman, the poet, is
still in the early morning of his song. Fred
eric 11. Perkins, a born inagasme writer, is
lending a young man's energies to the Gal
axy. Oharlcs D. Gardette, John Alden,
Darry Gray, 0. D. Shanley, and Ur. Stiles,
of the lhtlorical Magazine, might all be
much older and still young, George W.
Ilungay has just renewed his youth bytaking
chargo of the Herald of Health.
Col. Halpine and Prlvato Miles O'Reilly,
those interesting twins who edit The Citizen,
cannot pretend lltat their united ages are
over thirty-five; and George Alfred Toans
end, tho co-editor, is much younger. Eugene
Benson, the art critic, was a boy only yes
terday. The Anti-Slavery Standard begins
Its new volume with Aaron M. Powell the
youngest man who ever edited it. On the
other side of the East river is Edward Can-,
the indefatigable vounir editor of the Brook-
lyn Union. We presume that the journals
of every American city are equally crowded
with voune editors. Solomon thonzht it
good for a man to bear the yoke in his
youth,' and nothing In this world is more like
bearing a yoko than the editing or a newspa
per. rVpeea ami Ileicularliy.
As a general convention of the presidents,
chief engineers, and superintendents of the
railroads in tho United States and the British
Provinces is shortly to meet, to consider the
construction, management, and working of
railways, it Is suggested tho following ba one
topic of consideration:
"A railroad company need not own thu
rolling stock which runs on its tracks, any
more than a canal company should own all
the boats which use tho canal. Still, If com
panies now in existence should lay extra
tracks for freight alone, as we understand the
New Jersey Central Company is about to do,
they can accommodate the public as well, and
perhaps better, than Independent transporta
tion companies. For traffic roads, regularity
and accuracy of timo are more important
"Tho simple cure for this very serious evil
is a uniform rato of speed on freight tracks.
Tho speed need not be great twelve, or even
eight miles per hour would suffice, if it were
continuous, to convey freight to the satisfac
tion of shippers, who would be able to calcu
late to an hour when they should expect their
consignments; and with a proper arrange
ment of tracks, such as e must have intuit
country unless we Intend to stop tho growth
of the Northwest ard West, a fanner In Illi
nois or Iowa would bo able to hire a car, or
a dozen cars if ho needs them, fill them with
wheat at his station, and send hem through
to New York without breaking bulk on tho
way, with the certainty that they should
arrive there in a givon time and cost him an
eusily ascertainable sum."
A I.oMox letter says: "Yesterday, at one
of the annual exhibitions of tho Hoyal Bo
tanical Society, there was the usual display
of brilliant flowers and dresses, and tho most
prominent leaileri of thomuf ton of this city.
Among others I saw the Princess Mary of
Cumbridgo, and Prlnco Teck, to whom she is
soon to bo married. She is of enormous size,
and would be an armful fur PolYpbemus.
Her future husband will find himself about as
much married as any man iu Christrndom,
except, perhaps, Ilrlgham Young. Loudon
society, which delights in nick-names, has
already invented one for her, and she is now
familiarly and affectionately spoken of
(though not in her presence, of course,) as

The borax ot commerce has hitherto been

tained in Tuscanv. The acid and soda con.
Joined and crystallized has been found in
limited quantities in Thibet and China, But
tho deposit at Ulear ijiko in uauromla Is
much moro abundant, and of remarkablo
purity. As taken crude from the earth it is
pronounced superior to the best English re
fined borax. ' Borax Lake," as it is termed,
is about two miles in circumference, sur
rounded, by high hills, and serving as a reser
voir for tho water 'that (alls in the rainy
season. Tn summer tho lake Is quite shal
low, and lumps of crystallized borax are taken
out of the mud. And after the crystals aro
extracted the mud itself is found .for a depth
of several feet to contain more than eleven
per ceut. of borax. And so deeply has it
Eenetrated, that when an artesian well had
ecu sunk sixty feet, borax was still found in
tho mud, even at that depth.
