the way of Santa Fe, and if they have their

well employed and well paid. I am. anxious
SO know whether the Courts out here have
Probate jurisdiction. ' I have had several
hundred soldiers1 claims offered me, and I
would hare bought them, but the law states
that the 'claimants must make affidavits as
to their identity before a Court with Pro

; Let me give you a specimen of yester

probably I was a little more busy than
usual: in the morning I visited the Frt,
and afterwards my patients in town ; dined
at 3 p. m. and went to bed; was waked three
times ddriag the night to dress wounded
men, in general row that took place in
-the hotel where I am living. I have just
returned from an inquest that was being
held on a body found dead on the road t.t
the Fort. This is a common occurrence;
rarely a day' passes' that some are not
killed. , ; . .
. The people here are taking steps to or
ganize a government. . They are neglected
There are no regular custom house officers,
and the receipts from customs are $20,000
day. There are no post otnce arrenge
ments, and more letters are carried from
the Sacramento to this place and Monte
rey, than there are on one-third the mail
routes in the United States. There are no
courts, no laws, no protection to citizens,
and there are thousands of citizens re
quiring protect ioa.! There is no mint, and
our gold goes to Valparaiso and . niazatian
for coinage, and is sold for $14 per ounce,
and 6 per cent, is paid to the Mexicans and
Chillenos for the privilege of coinage, &c,
&o. It is a fact as certain as any thing can
be, that if' our wise-acres at Washington
delay Tarnishing us with a government, and
allow sectional prejudices and such things
as Wilmot provisos to interfere with their
duty and our rights, that the prediction so
pften made in the United States, of a
separation, from the Union, will be realized.

I may as well give yon a word or two on
the state of society among the miners, siur
der and highway robbery are every day oc
currences. Many and many a poor fellow
is waylaid, and his life , taken without its

tations of an old Hidalgo, when the stars
and stripes were unfurled atTampico. He
mourned the impossibility of getting away
from its( influence. In broken English he
exclaimed: 'I was de Spanish consul in de

I am not in favor of scourging American
citizens. 'k Roman citizen could not be
scourged,: and I believe an American citt

Roman citizens. ' Roman citizens were em
ployed both by sea and by land, in the army

that was reserved for slaves lor those be
low the dignity of a Roman.- It maybe said
that some 'persons are 'bad enough to be
whipped, but I question if whipping will ef
fect, a reform,' I also question if it is woith
wlile to make the officers of the navy the
instruments or agents to correct the incor
rigible part of mankind. It is better," sir,
to get ( them out of the navy, and have
nothing to do with them. I feel a deep
mortification, sir, in seeing a man one who
is brave one who will die in defence of
his country, either in the ar-my or navy
tied up and flogged. I feel humiliated, sir,
by such a spectacle; and I should like to
have the subject properly examined.
Printer's Proverbs. Never inquire thou
of the editor for the news, for behold it is
his duty at the appointed time to give it
unto thee without asking.' When thou dost
write for his paper, never say unto him,
what thinkest thou of my piece?' for it
may be that the truth may offend thee. It
is not fit that thou shouldest ask him
who is the author of an aiticle, for his
duty requires him to keep such things
to himself. When thou dost enter into his
office have a care unto thyself that thou
dost not look at what may be lying open,
for that is not meet in the sight of good-
breeding. Neither examine thou the proof
sheet, for it is not ready to meet thine eye,
that thou mayest understand it. Prefer the
best conducted paper to any other, and
subscribe immediately for it, and it shall be
well with thee and thy little ones.
