To u Friend.
Dear friend of my youth, there is nothing can
The bond of true friendship that binds me to
Though oceans.divide us, 1 love thee as ever;
'Though others prove lalse, thou art sull dear

this feeling—
Tis a soother of ills—’tis a balm for the heart;
Through sickness and age stilt its beauties re
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,

According to the lights before us. we can trulv

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

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!
" 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.

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

and dolt. In due time John became Baillie

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 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
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

line consisting of six superior first class steamers

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,” —

Agkicct.tu kai. Convention. — ihe San Fran

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

influence upon the great interests of Agriculture,

SS. O. O krrutroui,
TE R CURE PIIV SICT AN. ( H nssrr-rour
f v Doctor.) has removed to High street, firet
building east of the Ccmrier printing office, and
:.s now prepaied either to receive patients at Ins
residence, or to wait upon them elsewhere, as
nay be required. Having had several years ex
pern-lice in the Water Cure System, both in tins
-minify and Europe, he feels himself competent
o give advice and assistance in all cases where
relief is possible. This system is admirably
idapled to the cure ot a great variety of da
cases, both internal and external, chronic and
icute ; in fact, in all cases where the vital enemy
is not so tar destroyed that a satisfactory reac
tion is impossible, implicit confidence may be
placed in 11.
To all who are afflicted with fevers, rheinna*
lism, scrofula, hemorrhoids, dysentery, diarrhea
■ ind abdominal complaints generally, dvspepsla,
hypochondriasis, hysterics, skin diseases, run*
ning sores, venereal complaints, mercurial and
other medicinal diseases, still' joints, dropsy,
Pimencss, swellings am! callousness in private
formations, common weakness, nervous disor
ders, imperfect menstruation, green sickness,
etc., etc., he would recommend this cure wifii
full confidence, and the assurance that, it they
uive it a fair trial they will obtain speedy relief.
Although iu influence, when rightly used, is
comparatively mild and harmless upon the sys
tem, yet, for the removal of diseases, it is inoia
energetic and speedy than any of the remedies
now generally used.
Z'xF 11 e would respectfully refer to the persons
already treated by him—in all cases successfully
—since his residence in Shasta.
Terms.— For hoard, lodging, and medical at
tendance. from three to six dollars per dav, ac
