To u Friend. BT PHKBE. Dear friend of my youth, there is nothing can sever The bond of true friendship that binds me to thee; Though oceans.divide us, 1 love thee as ever; 'Though others prove lalse, thou art sull dear to me. 0! through err ITs thorny paths let us cherish this feeling— Tis a soother of ills—’tis a balm for the heart; Through sickness and age stilt its beauties re vealing— To love one another ’till life shall depart. I\cw Orlean* and Pacilic Kailroad. 1 liu Louisiana Legislature of IS.jii, incorpo rated a company tor constructing u railroad from Algiers, a loyyii on the .Mississippi opposite New Orleans, to some point oil the Sabine, favo rable tor constructing a railroad through Texas to ill I'aso, ou ibe lito Grande, at about the •Jt’d degree north, and thence to the I’acitic ocean. '1 he distance iroiu New Orleans to Sau Diego is estimated at 16.10 miles. From New Orleans to Loguusport ou the Sabine, it is 310 miles. This section, reaching to the eastern Slate line of Tex as, is to be constructed under the Louisiana charter. From Loguusport to Hi Faso, the wes tern boundary ol 1 exas, the distance isTH-i miles. 'J his section, it is expected, will he constructed by a company ol speculators, politicians and planters, from various States of the Union, but principally Irom toe North, who sought a char ter Irom the last Texan Legislature, and which charter, making liberal donations of public land u> a bonus, passed both branches of the Legisla ture, but lor some cause other than that of exec utive hostility, failed to become a law because ol the abscen.ee ol the Governor’s signature ; but the friends ol lids movement are confident that at the next session it will be renewed anil tri umphantly carried. U e have been thus specific in the detail of the condition ot the 1 exau bill, because many peo ple are under tht* impression that this railroad bill has become a law, and that the coin pan} was prosecuting this work with great earnest ness and energy. This move, alike with that ol Louisiana, wc look upon as a scheme gotten up by a knot ol speculators, to obtain a large amount ol puidic lands belonging to Texas. Lrom El Faso, the road it is designed shall pass through the northern portion of (Jnihuahmi am! tin State ol Sonora, striking die south bank ol the Gila river, by way of the Alessilia \ alley, crossing the Kio Colorada on the 33d parallel ol north latitude, and thence to thru Diego. Tin d stance irom El Faso is estimated at .V>6 miles, i ids movement may throw some light upon the past ami present filiihusteriug operations in So nora. There is no doubtful meaning to their ac tions, though it may not he obvious to all. or cor rectly interpreted by any one.—Sue. Union. Noblk s Pass,—lt is matter of surprise that our citizens cannot be made to feel an interest in the exploration and survey of Noble’s Pass. I hronghont the northern portion of the State, public opinion has been thoroughly awakened <m the subject. From the San Francisco Com r.if'rrnil Ad err fixer we learn that an expedition under Dr. Wozeneraft will start in a few days to examine its advantages. Should he pass this way—as there is good reason to believe tie will let what can be done to strengthen his hands, and aid him in the accomplishment of his pro ject. According to the lights before us. we can trulv echo the sentiments of the paper alluded to, when it says beyond doubt this is the route for the railroad ; and when sectional feeling and monied interest lias been set aside, vvs shall see the sober attention of the people of California Turned to this subject. Dr. Wozeneraft is ac companied by a number ol old frontiersmen, wbo are equal to the task before them. The snows have already appeared ou the mountains, and the party will probably meet with some stirring adventures before its return. The expo diliou proposes to be absent about five weeks.” Sac. Union, Condition ok Jamaica. —Gov. Wood, of Ohio recently appointed consul at Valpraisn, on his way there stopped at Jamaica. He thus writes of tjie condition of that Island ; ■ VS e saw many plantations, the buildings di lapidated ; fields of sugar cane half worked and apparently poor, and nothing hat that which will grow without the labor of man appeared luxuriant and flourishing. The island itself is of great fertility, one of die best of the Antilles; but ail the large estates npon it are now fast going to ruin. In the harbor were not a half a dozen ships of all nations ; no business was do ing, and everything you heard spoken was in the language of complaint. Since the blacks have been liberated, they have become indolent, insolent, degraded, and dishonest. They area rude, beastly set of vagabonds. Lying naked about the streets, as filth} as the Hottentots, and. I believe, worse.” Wiiolk.sai.k Catti.k Thikving.— Last Wednes il.i\ a party ot Mexican horse thieves, six in number, drove from Livermore’s and vicinity die small number of three hundred mid twenty bead of beet cattle, and sold them on the Sail Joaquin, at a ranch about five miles south of the 3 iiolmnne river. A portion of the stock was taken from the ranches of A. Sunol. J. Rental, and Dr. Marsh, but the greater proportion was from Livermore*, and his property. Mi. Laird, living on the Sau Joaquin, recog nized the brand*, and mounted a horse to in form the parties. Chase was immediately given, bui the robbers were not come tip with until the sale had been made, an I they on their re turu. Mi. Joseph Livermore and his party of others, being in pursuit, ami their animals near iv exhausted, retired to Grayson city, and there obtained fresh horses. They came up with the tluoves again ou Friday afternoon, some six m.ius *»»in *..w‘ *!iou&taiuf, w*u*n running fight ensued o aboat one hour, by which tin.l tie v I * ' ,h r ,l,nbf>r - Here the thieves abandoned them horses and took to the hills, and four out ot the number i„ this wav made their escape, one of them being severely wounded • toe other two were made prisoners and safely secured am from them the sum of seventeen hundred dollars was obtained. Mr. Livermore was siiot through the hat during the en-a-e --ment. It is supposed that the other four are now in this city. VV e derived the particulars of this transaction from a neighboring ranchero 'Times and Transcript. ,^' Ei tt.~ It has been often observed that a man W ill readily face danger and death in one form, ami be afraid of it in another; and this remark was strikingly exemplified in Jouot, one i»f Bo naparte s generals, who raised himself bv bis coolness when Bonaparte was besieging Toulon, fie was writing something by order of the iat tci, when a bomb-shell burst near him: he prompt!} observed that he wanted sand, and it iau come in due time. Vet I remember to have lean •• Nil S.dney Smith, speakitur of Jutibf in the Captain s room at the admirably sav. that when he was gong on hoard the Tiger. Sil Sid ney s ship, he was so frightened in monntimr the laiid, that it was found necessary to take him on board through one ot the port-holes. San Francisco. Fish Market. —The readers of the Commercial Advertiser are treated to n lengthy article on fish—their kind, quantity and quality, troni which we quote the subjoined ex tract ; “ Fish are brought to this marketfrom the ex treme southern end of the great Bay, from Sac ramento, from Saucelito, from the upper rivers from the numerous bays, creeks and inlets reaching inland from the coast, north and south, from Tomales, Shoalwater ami Uolinas Bays, from Oregon. Puget Sound,the Farrullones, and from all the small bays and ildets along the south California coast. The greater part of the fish, however, are taken frt m the waters of the Bay or from the vicinity of the Heads. Sometimes, beyond the Farralones, the lines are sunk to the distance of two hundred fathoms in fishing lor die rock fish, which is. perhaps, the most plen tiful and delicious of the several kinds brought 'o this market. ’This necessarily obliges the men to k< ep a large amount of lines on baud, the rock fisti keeping close to the bottom, and only taking certain kinds of bait. Cod and mackerel, however, which are beginning to be brought into the market in considerable quan tities, bite with voracity, and anything serves !,, r a bait. 1 lie outside fishermen encounter rough weather the greater part of the time, ami yet so ski lit ul ly are the boats managed, Uialugci leuls rarely if ever happen to them.” Western Music.—A Western chap went to New \ ork to purchase poods, Ac., and was in vited to one ot those lasli iotiable parties so com mm in large cities. He was clearly a western original, but raid vi ry little until be saw the par ty was not to close until an attempt was made 0 corner him. At length a bevy ot laughing .■iris, by the merest accident in the would, found themselvi s grouped about the western green ne, in a most animated discourse about music ..nd city playing. W hen all tit’s hud progressed just fur enough, ■■ne ot the damsels, with head more adorned w ithout than within, and in that peculiar parlor drawl which unioniiuaiely no type can repre sent, accosted the observed ot alt with — Do tiie ladies play music at the west, sir?” Original saw the game, and resolved to win. ‘"(.Hi, very uuiversaljy, Miss, ’ was the coo! reply. " indeed I was tint aware of that; pray, do they use the piano mostly ?” Never, Mi s Uie instrument that we have out our way is the Swindle, and the girls all play il.” " Oh, dear- I am sure, positively, that f never heard of that before. Do tell what it is, and how they play.” "Well; tbe instrument is a small pig, and •ach girl takes one of these under her arm, and chews the end of his tail, and that brings the music !” The preconcerted “come” made no farther progress; and for the balance of the evening our western “green” was the only lion of the show . Fighting nr Telegraph. —The Vienna Lloyds describes three omnibus looking vehicles in the camp at Omultz, each of w hich contains a com plete electric telegraph apparatus, with a con trivnnee for laying an instituted wire along the ground by the mere locomotion of the vehicle, the wire being so protected that it remains un injured under the pressure of the heaviest artil lery passing over it. By this means orders are to be instantly conveyed from the Emperor’s station, and that ot the chief commanders, to troops at almost any distance on the fields of the mumrnvres. Phea< hi\g to the Point.—Passing along ono Wednesday evening, for evening in the south is our afternoon, in Montgomery, Alabama, I stepped into the lecture room w here a sla\e w as preaching: “My brethren,” said he, “God bless your souls, ligitui is like de Alabama fiber ! In spring come fresh and bring in all de ole logs, slabs an sticks dat had been lying on de bank and carry deni down in de current. Bynieby dewater go down—den a log cotcll on dis island, den a slab get cotebed on de shore, and clen a stick on do bushes —an’ dare dey lie, vvither;u’ an dry in till come another fresh. .Jus’ so dere come rival ot Tigiou —dig ole sinner brought in—dat ole backslider is saved; then the ’vit al is over, an de convert is cotcheii where he was afore, on jus - such a rock; den one after’ under dat had got ligion lies till along do shore, and dere dey lie till uoder viva). Belobcd bredren, God bless your souls keep in the current 1 thought ins illustration beautiful enough for a more elegant dress; and too true, alas! of others than his own race.— Christian Herald. ri’" n perceive from the Edingbnrh News, that Mr. Hugh Miller, the geologist, has written an ingenious reply to Mr. Macauly’s assertion of the superiority ot distinguished university men for the practical a flairs of life. The instances adduceil by Mr. Miller, if they do not refute Mr. Macau ley s statements, at least show hxiiv much may be said on the other side of the question. “ Two boys were once of a class in the Edin burgh Grammar School —John, ever trim, pre cise and dux : \\ alter ever slovenly, contused and dolt. In due time John became Baillie John, ot Hunter Square, Edinburgh ; and Wal ter became Sir Walter Scott, of tbe universe Oliver Cromwell got but indifferently through college; John Churchill spelt bat badly, even after ho bad beaten all the most accomplished soldiers of France: and Arthur Wellesley was but an uninformed and vacant young lad for some time utter acquiring his commission.*’ In literature, besides Scott, the instances of Gold smith, Cowper, Dry den. Swift, Chalmers, John son and others are cited, to show that excellence is olteii attained in the absceuce ot precocity. 1 lie converse, indeed, is often true, and the proverb of “Soon ripe, soon rotten,” too often verified. Ihe competition scheme, according to Mr. Miller, would have on the whole, Jjie ef fect of not only excluding the truly able. Hut al so of admitting the inefficient. The class is large of those who seem to attain to their full developement in the contest of the academy and the college; and, eminent there, never to be heard of afterwards. Mr. Miller’s ow n case is one in point, where highest scientific and litera ry eminences have been gained without jnve idle scholastic distinctions. —Home .Journal. The Capitol. —The building destined to he the State Capitol, now in process of erection In- Dr. Carpenter, on Front street, will be comple ted in about two weeks. Only a few days will be required to put it in complete order for the reception of the Legislature. The Senate and Assembly chambers can be furnished at once. Committee rooms divided off. suite of apart ments for the Treasurer. Comptroller, Secretary of State. Superintendent of I’nblic Instruction, State Library, etc., can be provided all within the same building. \Ve doubt if there is a house in California so admirably adapted fog the Cap. itol as this. I rom every part of the State we hear unanimous expressions of satisfaction at the intended removal. The public demand it. and as their voice is law, the question may be considered settled.— State Journal. J California.— The State of California is over seven hundred miles in length, from northwest to southeast, averaging three hundred in width with an estimated population of about 35a 000 Her gold fields cover about one-sixifi c f [ ler whole extent, and her agricultural vnllies con tain the most products e soil in the world. The Rifle. —Many persons who are very ex port iu tiie use of the rifle, know nothing of the principle upon which it operates, and would be it a loss il asked why a grooved barrel throws a ball truer thau a smooth bore. The reasons are these : hi the first [dace, no bullet is. or can be cast perfectly sphericle. Uue side is always heavier than the other, and the ball therefore swerves from the right line of projection. However hard it may be to prove this theoretically, prac tice demosf rates it. The same smooth bore im movably fixed, twice loaded, with the same charge of the same powder, and with balls cast in the same mould, will not plant them both iu the same spot, at the sauie distance. The rifle barrel is a female screw,which gives the tightly driven ball a rotary motion, so that if the bullet, or rather the slug, swerves with one twist of the screw —another revolution corrects the error. There are but three motions iu a n£e ball—the straight I'orward, the spiral, and the dosvnward, caused by the power of gravity. A rifle of thirty in the pound drops its ball iibuut a loot in the first hundred yards. Rifles are sighted, therefore, to meet this deviation. Un leaving the barrel, the ball moves above the line of sight, continually failing in a parabolical curve till il intersects it. The point of intersec tion is called the point blank. Uiio indented rifle is not known. Its principles were known to the North American Indians before the discovery of the continent. Their arrows are feathered spirally, and move precisely in the same manner as a rifle ball. New Link oh Steamers. — We learn on relia ble authority that Commodore Vanderbilt de signs establishing a new line of steamers be tween this city and New York, via Panama. With this intention the Commodore’s steam yacht North Sar together with the splendid new steemer Awerica, have been ordered to ilia Pa cific. which with the Uncle Sam now here, will constitute the line on this side. These three vessels will connect with the Yankee Blade. Yankee Doodle anil another new steamer now on the stocks, (not yat named.) thus forming a line consisting of six superior first class steamers ( ijuai iu every respect to any now in the trade. !• roni the well known business energy of the proprietor of the new line, we have no doubt but il wil pro\ “ a successful one, and be the means of incrasiug the tide of emigration from the old Stales which the former high rates of passage has for a time caused to ebb.— Sun. Queer Singing.— The late Sears C. Walker, Estp, while iu company with Dunglesou and Bnelie, of the Coast Survey, was speaking of New England psalmody, ami quoted one line ho had frequently heard sung, viz: “Countless seraphs bow before thy throne.” which the choir spun out in this fashion, in linked sweetness long drawn out,” — Countless ser-ar-er-er-aphs limv-o\v wow wow Before the throne. “I never heard that before,” said Dunglesou; il must be one of the Dog-mas of the church.” “\es says Bache, •'it is in that CAT-egory L>ai> Company. —A lawyer in one ot the \\ ex tent States had a do" that was a "feat favorite, and in the habit of attending court with him* •due day the dog took it into ins head to ascend the bench ; and annoyed the judge very much, by running between his legs. The judge, in great rage, gave him a violent kick that sen! him yelping across the court house- The law yer much incensed at the unceremonious man ner in which his favorite was treated, called In him; "Pomp, come here! 'There lake that,’’ said he. covin" him another kick, “did not I al ways tell you to Keep out ol bad company !” Agkicct.tu kai. Convention. — ihe San Fran cisco Chronicle says that a Convention of the Cultivators ol the State has been announced by a circular endorsed by the names of many of our most influential citizens, to convene in that city. This Convention, if properly appreciated, attended and conducted, will exert an important influence upon the great interests of Agriculture, and its importance demands the attention of ev ery well-wisher of the State.
