We are at present bound on a pleasant

return to California for a cargo of gold, to
carry to the United States, and expect tu

You, of course, have heard of the im
mense gold mines that hate been discover
ed, which extend over a large tract of ter
ritory. The whole coufftry ia deserted
every body having gone there. The gold
found has been tested,' and its average
found to be 23 carats, Ihofigh some of it is
23 1-2. It is estimated, from the number
of people working there at present, end
from the tverage of their ditrgings, that
from $35,000 to $40,000 are collected

More Gold. Chili, Recent arcourts
from Chili give information of (he discov
ery ol a gold mine near Copiapo, on the
coast, and north of YalmrraUo. which, for
richness, if the accounts be true, lling in
the shade even (he Sacraniento diggings,"
which we thought were rather ahead of
all the auriferous recions discovered or
discoverable. The gold ore at Copiapo is il warf a Mr bargain and done so neatly
said to yield seven pounds of gold out of ,hat ,he fel,ovv "eservedlhe fifty dallars,'
seven arrabag, which is equal to about one nd ,le n"w him' or the money a-twenty-sixth
part. Tliin we hold to ba 6ain' ' , -
incredible, or at least utterly improbable;
and one of two things rhul be true, we
think either that the Supply of ore is
very limited, or that its richness is greats
ly exaggerated. The Russian gold mines
in Siberia are worked to advaiilsge when
the auriferous sand yields only one seven
ty-eiuhl-lhoutandth part, and under some
circumstances, make remunerating returns
when yielding two-tnilliohih part only.
If, then, (lie supply of the ore at Copiapo
be large or inexhaustible", and yields rf
l enly-sixlli part of gold, thaf metal will
be in danger of losing its' monetary prom
inencej but of this the're is no probabili

A GAMBLING ANECDOTE.
A correspondent of the New York
Spirit of the Times, says :
The best genuine "Yankee trick," I
ever saw, occurred at the Londonderry
(N. H.) Fair. A Yankee was strolling
ing about the tavern, among gamblers, &e.,
when one of themcume up and asked him
to play cards with him , he replied that he
did not know much about gs'rae, and that
he never gambled. . t
"Well," said the gambled, "I'd like to
play a game with you ; wliat will you
play wi h me for P"
"Well," said our friend. "Ill plays
grme with you for filly cents."
. Down they sat, the gambler put down
fifty cents, and asked our friend if he beg
ged? "No," aafif he,' "I've got a very good
hand I don't beg?"
"Well," replied the other, "put your
"What mbiiey ?" asketf Jonathan.,
"Why, your fifty cents!"
"I didn't say I'd put clown 50 cents !
You asked me what I'd play yon for, and
I s.i id 50 cents' and I'll pluy you till night
for 50 cents a game 1" .
The gambler snatched up the card and
money and bolted, amid the langh:'i' of the
w hole room, completely told.
A young rhan from Saubartown, who
had reccivetfwai'es to the amount ol SdOO,
I wa here'; he 'was the intended game or
D- lost, evevery game,' plajing for four
pences (6 1-4 cents.) When the young
man had won $50 ol D's money , D. said,
"Now, you've got $50 from rne, let's jilay
for $50 s game Y" '
The other, who ken w lie would now
clean him out; agreed, but said they must
drink together lir(; up ihey went to the
bar, and called for brandy ; while 1). was
drinking, the other uenl tu (lie t)o r, and

Tne following capital story of an Ala
bam Sheriff and pretty widow, is pot
new, but like other good stories, wilbesr
re-felling': , . . ; , . .
'Court was in session, and amid the fnul
tiplicity of business which crowded upon
him at term time, he stopped at tht door
of a beautiful widow, on to Sunny lids
of thirty, who by the way,' had often' be
stowed melling glances upon the sheriff's
foresaid. He was admitted, and soon the
widow appeared. 1 he confusion and de
light which the arrival of the visitor bsdf
occasioned, set off t greatef advantage
than usual . the captiuatinjj charms of the
widow M. Her cheeks bore tha beauti
ful blendid" tfnts of the apple blossom ; her
lips resembled rosebuds, upon which the
morning dew yet lingered her eyes were
like the quivers of enpid, the glances of
love and tenderness with which they Were
filled resembling arrow that only wsnted
a fine beau (pardon the pun) to do full ex
edition. Alter a few commonplace re
marks. . 1 " "
'Madam,' said the' matter of Tact sheriff",
'I have an attachment for you.' , ' ' 1
A deeper blush than usual mantled the
cheeks of the fair widow. With downcast
eyes, whose glances were centred upon'
her beautiful feet, half concealed by the
flo biff' ('rapery, gently patting the floor,
she with equal oandor, replied ; .
'Sir, the attachment is reciprocal.' f ,,
For some time the sheriff maintained ear
astonished silence ; at last he said, .
'Madam, will you proceed to court?'
' Proee'e'dtto court?' replied the lady,
with a merry laugh'; then shaking her
beautiful head, she added t ''No, Sir I iho'
this is leap year, I will not ta&e edvautsg'f
of the license therein granted to yhy-iSex,'
and therefore greatly prefer that you ahedla
'proceed to court I' ' j '."'
But, madam, the justice is wailing.' '
Let hirrt wsitr I am not disposed to
hurry matters in such an unbecoming mari
ner ; end. besides sir, when the ceremony
is nerlnrinrd. I wish voiitn understand
that I prefer a aiflilMtr io a' justice of the
Madam.' said he, rising from his chsir
with solemn dignity, 'there is a greet mis
take here. My language has been mis
understood. The ottfcliment of which I
speak was issued from the office of Es
