It will keep sweet in common barrels, for a great length of time, say a trip to Europe ami back, which has been repeatedly proven from N. York. Therefore every in dividual or company undertaking long journeys by water or land, will provide themselves with it as an individual ac quisition to the culinary department. To miners it is emi nently adapted, as well for its economy as the simplicity of preparing it for bread, and the rapidity with which it can do naked and served for use. Give it a trial, and you will be thoroughly satisfied of its virtues. Principal Depot, 122 Sansome street, Pan Francisco. E. .). FA IK (.HILDA' ( O.

TIIE above Excelsior Establishment, which is fire proof and five stories high, (being the only five story house on the Pacific,) is now finished and splendidly fur nished throughout. Although it contains one hundred and seventeen large rooms, with facilities to accommodate two hundred lodgers—such has been the rush of customers to the Exchange since its completion, that the proprietors have been induced to lease half of the fire proof block just erected by Lieut. Maynard, and adjoining the Exchange. This will add seventeen large apartments, and afford those facilities which the increase of trade requires. < hir pres ent Bar will, in a few clays, be removed to the first floor in the Maynard block, one door north of where the Bar is at present. No pains or money will be spared to render the Exchange the Excelsior Hotel of the public, and keep pace with the rapid growth and improvement of our wonderful city and state. With the above inducements, the /Exchange is confident ly offered to the “million” as deserving their patronage— and although not disposed to he Win-dy and trumpet our own praise abroad, our hearty thanks are cheerfully ten dered to the ten thousands that have bestowed upon us alike their favors and money.

San Francisco, December 3d, 1953. 3 3ut #att |rantisto , Rciflom why fc * Tl;«- Million* 99 Ent at AVIjiii’* FOUNTAIN HEAD. BY NED SMUI. When in the course of human events it becomes neei n y that somethings should bo known as well as others, il is but ordinary justice to the good sense of men to exhibit the reasons and high considerations ini] idling there to. In our courtesy to the million, it behooves us to set forth the following points: ! 1. Because in this wor» I of selfishness there are few who J understand creature comforts, and know how to nppreeinte ; human wants, and it is peculiarly gratifying to Californi- I ans to know that WIX X himself is the < hief among them, j ever selecting 'personally, the best provisions in tin* mar kets of the world, to set before visitors at the For.vrAix I Head. 2. Because every body finds at the Foui tain Head what ever the most refined taste demands or health requires, | and is served at all hours promptly and attentively, by a score of the most attentive young men, who hasten up or ders from the kitchen as if by electro-magnet ism, causing | all to feel far more at home, than in other establishments of loftier pretensions. 3. Because thousands of sick persons, after spending * largo sums of money for medical treatment, have entirely i recovered their houiths since < ating r< gnkirly at the 1*oun ! tain Head, than in all the science and drugs of the medi 1 cal faculty. I 4. Because philosophers assert this important fact, that benevolence and kindness arc diffused and strengthened among mankind in about the same ratio Unit the digestive organs are properly cared for and satisfied ; lienee the rea son why satisfaction smilingly irradiates every countenance of the million who take tin ir meals at the Fountain Head. 5. Because all the ladies are in favor of Winn, owing to the fact that quite a number of the crustiest bachelors in California have been softened in their hearts and been j induced to turn their willing steps towards the slate of matrimony, after eating u few weeks at the Fountain Head. t>. Because six husbands who were awfully passionate towards their better-halves, are known to have undergone a radical change of disposition, since they commenced eat ing nt the Fountain Head ; and their delighted wives pos itively affirm that they never lived so happily and lovingly as since they ordered their meals from the Fountain Head, and supped at t he Branch. 7. Because it is well known that many of the oldest in habitants, who have been married from live to fifteen years without the least prospect of their being able to transmit their names down through their posterity, may now be seen rejoicing amid a hiving family withjoy unspeakable. .Seek you the cause of this, and it is ascribed alone to tin ir change of living, and partaking of the invigorating dishes of the Fountain lload. 8. Because all the old Calif irninns, who have oaten regularly at Winn’s Fountain Head, become satisfied to live in California, wbhing nut to return and remain in the older states, but agree w ith the Fountain Head policy, that j of populating’tuul settling up the beautiful valid s, and ex tending the area of health and happiness to the niillioi> in this state. t). Because numbers who have heretofore thought they I could not eat their meals without some alchoholie mix I are beside them, have been led to discover the folly of putting such poison into the stomach, and w isely continue their vis i its to the Fountain Head, where no such temptations ever present themselves, whereby men arc lured into vice and | consequent crime. 10. Because “ all the world and the rest of mankind,” after once eating of the California Buckwheat Cakes, swim ming in Winn's patent golden syrup, and the warm bread and rolls and biscuit made of California extra superfine flour, manufactured expressly lbr the use of the visitors of , the Fountain Head, surpassing in quality the far famed Gal lego and lJaxull biands, they seek no further; because they become younger as the years roll on, and grow as sle< k and good natmed as the Alderman of the land. These ten reasons, and ninety others equally good and substantial that might be given, satisfy the longing appe tites eft lie million far better than painted sepulchres piled 1 up lik«* Babel totlio very heavens. “ 'Neath which ding’d liquors fill the bar, To make men reel, all maddened there.” For the faithful performance of the principles set forth in the above declaration, there is pledged the fattest, ten derest Beef, Yeul, and Mutton; the freshest vegetables and fruits of California, and the sweetest bread and pastry made anywhere between tlic Arctic Ocean aiul the jump ing oil’ place ; all of which the public may enjoy, mote it he. Sun Francisco, Nov. 2f>, 1853 2 3nt WINN’S FOUNTAIN HEAD. The Fountain Head! The Fountain Head! Winn’s Fountain is the plate, Where old and young, the grave and gay, Join in life’s cheerful race. They with accord arc rushing by, , And for the Fountain haste, Their Breakfast, Dinner, Copper too, Are always to their taste. ’Tis there they find the choicest meals, Our market e’er affords, Served up in latest style that’s known, All smoking on the boards. Steaks and stews and vegetables rare, And butter, sweet as cream ; Rolls, doughnuts, cakes, and fresh fruit pies. Well lit lbr Lngland’s Queen. The coffee too, so clear and hot, Prepared of Java best, Served up with cream and sugar white, Is drank with hearty zest. Winn’s Fountain Head hath viands choice, All that is rare and good ; None can surpass its ample .'tore, Nor rich and varied board* Tliis fact our robust Aldermen, Do every day attest, That at U inn’s Fountain Head and Branch, They’re always suited best. Then old and young, both grave and gay, Let’s for the Fountain aim. The Fountain Head! The Fountain Ile&d! And choicest meals obtain. Respectfully dedicated to the eating public of California in general, and San Francisco in particular, by Ned Smt i. Winn’s Urnnc-ln The Fountain is the “place of cull,” For bachelor, both great and small ; But dare they e’er in love to get, The branch the case has nicely met; And here with sweetheart!* or with wives. May least and happily their lives. Our city no such place could boast. ’Till Winn became the Ladies’host, Who served such dishes to the Fair, That Bachelors themselves came there, And wondered what the move could mean, The Ladies rushing all to Winn. The wonder having passed away, Now from the Branch they cannot star : The spirit of the age they feel, And to the Branch they often steal, With those so lovely, smilling, sweet, To spend the hour a-tete-a-tete.
