JBsiolielor’a Hall. Bachelor’s ,HaIl! what a queer looking place it is! | Kape me from sich all the days of my life; .-Sure, but I think, what a burnin’ disgrace it is, Never at all to be getting a wife. .See the old Bachelor, glopmy and sod enough, Placing his taykittle over the fire, .Soon it tips over—St. Patrick ! he’s.mad enough, (If he were present) toiigbt with the squire. Now like a hog in a mortar-bed wallowing, (Awkward enough) see him kneeding his dough; •Truth ! ti the bread he could ate without swal lowing. How it would favor his palate, you know. His dishcloth is missing, the pigs are devour ing it. ' ■ In the pursuit he has battqred his shin-r A plate wanted washing, grimalk in is scouring it; Thunder and turf, what a pickle he’s in! .Pots, dishes ami pans, such greasy commodities. Ashes and pratta-skins kiver the floor; .His cupboard’s a storehouse ut comical oddities, 1 lungs that had never been neighbors t’efore. His meal being over, the table's left sitting so, Dishes, take ca.re of yourselves if you Can ! But hunger returns, then he’s fuming and fret ting so; Ocli! let him alone for a bqcte of a man ! Late in the night then he goes to bed shivering; Never the bit is the bed made at all: He creeps like a larrapin under the kivqrin— Bad luck to the picture of Bachelor's Hall. JRrporl «f the County Surveyor of Siskiyou County. Ykkka City, Siskiyou Co., ) Sept. 10, 1852. ) Hon. W. M. SnrveyprGeneral: Sin, —Accompanying tlii 1 transmit, .to yon a g'ougli skeleton ot a map of the eastern part o! this county. 1 have spent some weeks in ex ploring that heretofore a most unknown section ,ol this State, ami am satisfied that I have mark ,ed down the general features of the country, uud tjie principal laud marks very near cor rectly. ihe apology I have for the roughness of my map, 's the haste 1 have used in preparing it, and this in time for the departure of the express, and my intention ot forwarding to your office hy the first ot December next, a more complete map of the whole county, and also of all that tract ot country lying between this county and ithe ocean, with a part ot the adjoining territory ,ol Oregon. This last ] expect to obtain from a talented and selenitic friend, who is now pros pecting and exploring that country, and map ping and noting the principal features us he goes over it. I expect him to return to this place by the first ot November next, and hope then to ,he able to present to you a full description of all .the northern part of the State. It is somewhat more than what properly be longs to me to do, but I presume that whatever new and useful information I may give, will not be thrown aside on that account. Ot the country over which 1 have lately been gravelling, I will try to give such a description as I can, from the Shasta range of mountains (i. e., (those .running N. N. W. from Shasta Butte) to ,tiie Sjejrra Nevada, is a large basin bounded on ,tbe south by a mountainous and very rough ,ninge extending from Shasta Buit'e soth-easterly to the Sierra Nevada. This range is not (p all its length a distinct ot mountains. Volcanic eruptions have scattered and broken the county into a rough ness which I presume is not equalled in any 'other part of the State. Pitt river, the main branch of the Sacramento, breaks through tjliis county, and also McLeod’s Fork (of Pitt river) passing through cannons so deep, narrow and jrocky, as to be utterly impassable to man. The north side ot t|je basin is formed by the .extension of the Umpqua and Rogue River Mountains. In this basin are four liyge lakes, none of which, except Klamath lake, have an outlet. Klamath lake, the source of Klamath river, is frooi 25 to 30 miles long, and 18 to 20 wide. Its waters are of a yellow muddy color, and very strongly akaline. Near its southwest corner I found some fine specimens of chalk, and have reason to think it is abundant in this part of the country. There is no arable laud around this lake. East from Klamath is Tulare or Indian lake. Around this are some valleys of agricultural land. The water ot this lake is slightly alka line. Lost river, which .heads in some smaller lakes to the north-east, running west, then southward, a.nd passing tor some distance within mile of Klamath Lake, emptier into Tulare lake. jfhis is a very deep, narrow stream. The ■“ natural bridge” on this river is a dam formed ,by a ledge of rocks about 30 yards wile across the stream. Over this natural dam the river pours in a current about 8 to 12 inches deep, "while above and below, the water is generally from 6 to 10 feet deep. Tulare lake is about 30 miles long, and from 10 to 15 wide. Across a low range of barren hills to the eastward and northward of this lake, lies Little lake, a smaller sheet of beautiful clear good water. It is nearly circular in shape, and ten miles across. There is but little timber in the neighborhood of these lakes—the hills and mountains around only being sparsely covered with a scrub growth of cedar. Eastward and southward of these lakes, the country is very rough and broken. I crossed several small canons (usually from IQ to 60 yards wide, and 5 to 10 yards deep) which seemed to have been ouce the beds of considerable streams. The bottoms of these were usually covered with a rauk growth of grass and wil lows. Goose lake is a handsome sheet of water, ly ing directly at the western base ol the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is 40 miles loug and 6to 12 miles wide. The hills to the west of the lake are covered with excellent pine and fir timber. Tbere»are no streams other than small mountain torrents emptying into this lake. Pitt river rises about 12 miles to the south of Goose lake, and runs in a south-west course. McLeod’s Fork (of Pitt River) rises south of Tu lare, and its general course is southerly. Along these streams there is but little arable land ; indeed, for the greater part of their course they ruu through deep canons. There is an abundance of game of all kinds throughout all this country, and the lakes (ex cept Klamath) abound in water fowls*of various kinds. The Indians are very numerous, and are a hold hostile set of thieves. Some of the little party I was with were killed by them, and others se verely wounded. 1 extended my excursions a few days beyond the Sierra Nevada mountains in examining the canons. “ Mud Lake,” and boiling springs of that strange country. Some account oJ my observa tions I may some day transmit to you. but would prefer first to visit that country agaiu, aud be fib I e to examine its curiosities more at leisure. In the instructions you seat to me I find such an abundance of work to do that I think I shall never accomplish half of it. and it is very cer tain to my mind that I will not if 1 have to do it all without any remuneration. I have seen no Act making provision for the payment of Coun ty Surveyors for the duties imposed upon them. 1 am but little inclined to do all this work mere ly for the sake of having my report “duly no ticed” in your annual reports, for my experience teaches me that serving in any office merely for the honor of the office, brings poor comfort in the long run. Respectfully, &c., JAMES T. LOWRY, Surveyor Siskiyou Co. [copr ] Yreka City, Siskiyou Co., ) November 25, 1852. ( Ho.v. W. M. Surveyor General : Sis,—Havipg just returned from a trip of six weeks into the mountains in the western part of this county, and also in the northern part of Klamath county, I found your letter of October 23, and hasten to reply to it. Accompanying this 1 send you a hasty but correct sketch of the country between this place and the coast. My excursion was to find a pack trail to a harbor, (audio examine the said harbor,) which is situated near Point St. George, and about due west from this place. At present it is sufficient to say, that we were completely successful m finding a good trail and a good harbor. \ou request in your letter such information as 1 can give in regard to the new emigrant road opened this year front the Humboldt to ibis place. I was over route onc e this year, and will give you the distance and description as I ba\ e them on my journal of the trip. from the Humboldt to Black Rock Springs, (»0 miles W. N. W., copntry very level; no tiiu l.er; water in two places. The road then bears N. N. W 24 miles over very level country, grad ually ascending ; then over a low rocky ridge, S. • 7 miles to the mouth of Big Rock Canon. Through the canon W. 10 miles is a valley about 100 yards wide, level and good travelling; then 4 miles over gently polling country lu Little iiptky Canon; through this 2 miles, a rocky wagon road, but level g thence W. N. W. 20 miles, to a mud lake 3 miles long, hulfmile wide, overtoiling but not billy country; thence west over rolling country, sometimes ijycky, but usually a good natural wagon road, 12 miles to a hot spring, these springs are between two salt or mud lakes, and directly at the eastern base ol the Sii rra Nevada mountains. 1 nun Humboldt to the Sierra Nevada there is no timber, but an abundance of good grass and watt r. 1 lie two lakes are about sor (i miles apart and are very shallow, so that late in the summer the greater part of each is dry. front the hot springs the road is north 15 miles, level road, line grass and clover; then over the main ridge of the Sierra Nevada one mile; theme to Goose Lake valley, nine miles; descent Very gradual except the fast 300 yards, which is quite steep. I have never crossed the Sierra Nevada moun tains at any other place than this, but 1 have been told by several persons who have been over tlie different crossings, that this is the low est and easiest crossing now in use. I rode my mule over and was 42 minutes in going from base to base of the main ridge, which is the only part which resembles a mountain. Around the south end of Goose Lake the road is over a level, grassy valley, 25 miles; leaving the lake nearly directly west of wheye we struck it passed up a gradual descent one tgile, through heavy pine and fir timber, then 5 miles of rolling timber country to a small canon, average depth about 25 feet, and (10 to 100 yards wide, Down this the road followed 11 miles, then across a fiat 2 miles. This Hat is surrounded by a perpen dicular rocky wall, similar to the sides of the canon, and appears to have been once full of water —along another canon 2 miles, then over a flat, very rocky country 14 miles. This is the extreme northern point of the toad, and is W. N. W. from the point of leaving Goose lake. There is abundance of good water and grass along this part of the road, and the low hills are scantily covered with tolerable timber. 1 rom this the road bears IS. W. li miles, over rolling rocky country, then (i miles over a grassy Hat to Little lake ; around this 3 miles, road good and level; thence over a rocky ridge 6 miles, ascent and descent very easy to Tulare lake valley, then up this valley W. N. W. in the natural bridge, J 5 miles (evel road; then S. S. W. 7 miles across a low ridtje into Klamath lake valley. Around this lake the road is toy the most part level, passing oyer two small spurs from the hills. From Klamath lake road good and level K mjles, then ascend a low bill to the upland bvyel, thence 18 miles to Butte Creek, the last 8 miles through heavy tifiiber, level road; up Butte Creek the road good and level (i miles, passing then through a low gap in mountains to Shasta valley 15 miles. In constructing a railroad the Sierra Nevada might be avoided by crossing to the northward of Goose lake, and then passing to the south-west and leaving Little anil Tulare lakes to the right, a route could be had tolerably clear of mountains, but very rocky and rough. December 3 d —Since writing the above none of our expresses have been able to arrive or de part on account of the continual storm. This is one of the most serious disadvantages we labor under. We are at times cut off entirely Irom all communication with the rest of the State. My sketch of the western part of this county is very rough, but still 1 feel confident that the position of the various streams, &c., are correct ly laid down. With respect, yours. JAS. T. LOWRY, County Surveyor, Siskiyou Co. Kossuth.— ln alluding to the statement that Kossuth is again about to visit America, the N. \. Courier and Enquirer says: “ VV e speak advisedly when vve say, he dare not return. We speak from knowledge and the evidence of our own eyes, when we say, that he requitfed the generosity of our people by the basest ingratitude, and that before he slunk from our shores under the alias of Alexander Smith, he signed a contract to head an expedition from this city against a country with which we are at peace, in open defiance of our neutrality laws. This we say we know from the evidence of out eyes, before the infamous contract was deposi ted in the Department of State; and if he ven tures again to come among us, our Government, whether Whig or Democrat, will not hesitate to arrest and punish him.” ry The editor of the Scientific American doubts if the Erricson will prove successful. Dr. Lardner doubted if steam would propel a vessel over the Atlantic, but afterwards gave practical evidence of a belief in the fact, by taking the benefit of it in running away with another man's wife to this country. jy We had related to us the other day an anecdote of an old lady who formerly entertain ed travelers in a neighboring county. Before her guests commenced a meal it was her custom to ask a blessing. She rlways delivered herself in this wise : “Oh Lord make us truly thankful for the food before us. Nancy hand round the corn bread first, and the biscuits afterwards. Amen.’" Vkrsost Girls. —Hon. Henry Oliver, former ly an M. C. from Vermont, was asked while in Washington, how he liked a residence at the capitol. He replied, he did not like to live at Washington as well as Vermont, “forhere they have white butter and yellow girls, while in Vermont 'they have yellow butler and white girls." fy A railway is to girdle Baris which will cost nine million francs. “ Hare we a Bourbon Among as f” Putnam’s Monthly for February, proves that a Rev. Eleazer Williams, of New York State, is Louis XVII. The proof rests upon circumstan tial evidence. We give the following links in the chain: “ The Prince de .Joinville, on his arrival in this country, inquired .for Mr. Williams, and sought a id obtained an interview with him at Green Bay, in which, after demandidg a condi tional pledge of secresy, he required of him a resignation of the crown of France, as its legiti mate heir, in favor of Louis Phillippe, and after wards corresponded with him through his secre taries. “ After the Prince's return, Louis PhiUippe wrote with his otrn hand to Mr. Hit lin ms. “ He closely resernbles Louis ATT 111. “ Various marks on his body correspond ex actly with those known to,have been on the body of the Dauphin. “ Boxes of clothing and medals of Louis XVI and Maria Actoinette, were left with the child, one of which is still in Mr. Williams’s possession. “An unknown Frenchman came to see Mr. Williams in his youth, and wept over him. "Williams was idiotic at the age of 13 or 11. The Dauphin at the age of 10 was reduced to the same condition by ill treatment. “ A decree for the banishment of the son rf Louis XVI, passed the French Convention in “ The President and the Ecclesiastical digni taries of France have written to Mr. Williams, making inquiries concerning his history.” The above statements are facts. Mr. Williams has been for twenty-six years a good Episcopa lian Missionary among the Indians of New York, and no efforts that were made by emissaries of France to induce him to return to the Romish communion had any efiect upon that extraordi nary gentleman. Dow Jr.’s Faith. — I believe that kicking against custom and spitting in the face of fash ion, is a futile and foolish endeavor, may need correction, but they must and will have their own way. 1 believe that if the devil be the father of liars, he has a plaguy large family to look after, and that it is rapidly increasing. 1 believe girls are like kittens: gently smooth them down the right way, they rub and pur most affectionately ; but give them the contrary brush, and their back is up in the must disdain ful manner. I believe that simple honesty, the raked truth, pure virtue, <vid a straight up and down way of dealing with the world, have as many advan tages over the vices, tricks and stratagems of the devlish, in the long run, as a good square trot ting horse has over a pacing pony or racket- that goes his mile or two like the mischief, and is done lor the rest of his journey. 1 believe that an old sinner, who has spent his days in studying how to plunder his neighbor, and is living in affluence on the proceeds of his villany, is not die proper person to propagate falsehood on his fellow-man who is earning his bread by honest labor. I believe that such a man had better take the hog from his own eye before he attempts to snatch the bristle from his neighbor’s eye. Practical Abolition. —Benjamin Walker, Esq., of Jamaica, writing to his brother in Charleston, S. C.. uses the subjoined language. He is an Englishman, who has resided in the Is land for many years, and after a personal inves tigation of the Abolition operations of his own Government, says: “ I hope and trust you will never be imbued with anti-slavery doctrines; and if many could witness the ruin of interests, both moral and ma terial, the misery of families, and the desolation of all which I now see around me, occasioned by the emancipation of the negroes, there would be less agitation in your country on that jnuch vexed question. I hope the people of the South will hold their own. Emancipation means con fiscation and misery to both races. Let people come to Jamaica and judge for themselves, and witness the white race driven from their hearth and home by the destructive policy of the motiu r country. An Exodus of the white race has al ready commenced, and I am preparing to join in the stream, and abandon a worthless and ruined country.” An Irish Sermon. — Mrs. Mulvany, ye must die, although you’re so hale and harty, ye must die, that ye must. And you, Mr. Rafferty, ye must die too, although ye are so lane and lank that ye scarce make a shadow when the sun shines, ye must die, that ye must. And you. Mr. Enniskillen, ye must die too, that ye must. And you too, Teague M'Ginuis for all rosy cheeked and are for ever making love to the girls at Donnybrook Fair, ye must die. I nin-i die too. although I am pastor of the parish, and have the care of all yer sowls. I must die too ; and when I shall becoming up before Goodness, anil Goodness is after saying to nit —“ Father Mulrico LaffcjTy, how is your parish on for drunkenness ?” I shall say, “ Och mighty clean, yer honor.” And then Goodness will say. Father Mulrico Latterly, how is yer parish otl forthaving and such like deadly sins?” “Och. mighty clean, yer honor.” So ye see it’s a good character 1 shall be given Goodness, of yez till : but when Goodness shall say to me. “Father Mulrico Latterly, how have they paid you their Easter dues?” what shall I say to that, ye black guards ? A Poet’s Description of the “Ericsson.” —The Home Journal, which looks upon the world with the dreamy eyes of Poesy, thus daguerreo types the “ Breathing Engine:” A caloric ship is a steamer with the devil out ot it—a ship of the niilleniuni —a gentle, safe and quiet craft, that will go silently, yet swiftly over the waves as poets and Swedenborgians imagine a celestial bark may course her wav through space from sphere to sphere, bearing beautiful immortals on errands of love. L# 1 Tlie County Clerk, of St. Charles Conntv. found that he had lot many a fee by persons promising to call again and settle. He therefore adopted the following plan in order to secure himself. In administering the oath he would give it thus: “ You swear that the contents of this paper is correct and true to the best of your knowledge and belief. You owe me fifty cents, so help you God.” Robert Burns, the Ayrshire poet and ploughman, who died neglected and unfriended, is likely in his descendants to niingjp with the ari.’ r ocracy of Britain, we see by our late Eng lish files. Major Burns—or Colonel—at prpsent holding a high situation in India, has his patent, of nobility made out, and will shortly be gazet ted as Baron of Ellisland. the name of Burns’ farm. It is thus the British peerage seek to wipe out the stain upon their appreciation ol genius. £? Somebody says, “a baby laughing in its dreams is conversing with angels.” Perhaps so —and when crying in their waking hours, are having a spat with the devil. If such is the case the “ poor dears” have considerable more com munication with his Satanic majesty than with the spirits of light.— Cnlifontian. bp The editor of the Kennebec Jmirnnl. in dunning his subscribers, says : “ he has little re sponsibilities thrown upon him just now, w hich he is obliged to meal."
