A committee will receive the lunch baskets at the Church and see that they are taken to the grounds, and the children of the town will meet at the Church at 10 o’clock a. M* and march to the grove on Shuitleff’s Hill. Irrigation. —The Goose Lake Canal Company has filed its certificate of incor poration. Objects: The construction and maintenance of a canal or canals from Goose I ake, at or near the southern ex tremity, in Siskiyou county, through the Pitt River Canon, and through or near Pitt River Slough ; to be used for supply ing water for irrigation, for water power and for mining purposes. Capital stock, $500,000 Trustees—John W. Pearson, James H. Pearson and Charles 11. Pollard. Inheritance. —A letter received from the East this week conveys the information that a relative of Mrs. Joseph Waugh has died lately and left her and her brothers and sisters an estate valued at several thousand dollars. Twenty Years. —The Shasta Cour ier has just commenced its twenty-first volume. Rut two weekly papers in the Stale, started previous to the Courier are now alive—the Alta California and Cala veras Chronicle —Vallejo Daily Recorder. The raising of tropical fruits in the southern portion of California is a largo and growing business, anil promises to become one of great importance. Orange, lime, and lemon trees raised from the seed there bear in their ninth or tenth year, and the profits on oranges are larger than those made on any other fruit, paying at the rate of from S'JO to 850 a tree, seventy-five trees being the usual allotment to an acre. These trees need constant irrigation. They can be transplanted at almost any age with out injury; but trees over three years old are seldom to be found at the nurseries. Walnuts yield a profit from full-grown trees of from 8000 to 81,000 an acre. They require irrigation only in the uplands; in the valleys they grow well without it- The olive is also a tree which thrives lux uriantly in that region, and liberally rewards the cultivator. In time the California olive crop will be of great value. The Last Legislature. —Judging from experience of many years in this .State, it is a time-honored custom, not only among the public journals but also among the masses, to speak well of every incom ing Legislatute, and straightway abuse it unmercifully and without stint upon ad journment. In such case there is no -damning with faint praise ” An adjourn* <■■l Legislature is considered fair game. Anybody may shy a rock or offer an insult with impunity. It seems to us of late that this prevailing tendency is well satirized in the fable of The Ass and the Dying Lion. * * i!y the sober second thought of the people, the Nineteenth California Legislature will be judged according to the result of the Codesand kindled legislation, perhaps robbing its predecessors of its just share of credit. The fashion of always abusing our Legislature when the session is ended is a libel upon self-government, and the maxim will well apply that “tha greater the truth, the greater the libel.”—[Trinity J ourual.

A healthy liver secretes each day about t*« «r.J a half pounds of bile, which contains n great amount of waste material taken fn m the blood. When the liver becomes torpid •or congested, it fails to eliminate this vast amount of noxious substance, which, there for remains to poison the blood and be con veyed to. every part of the system. What must be the condition of the blood when it is receiving and retaining each day two and a half pounds of poison ? Nature tries to work off this poison through other channels and organs—the kidneys, lungs, skin, etc. ; but these organs become overtaxed in perform ing this labor, in addition to their natural functions, and cannot long withstand the pressure, but become variously diseased. The brain, which is the great electrical •centre of all vitality, is unduly stimulated bv the unhealthy blood which passes to it from the heart, and it fails to perform its office healthfully. Hence the systoms of bile pois oning. which are dullness, headache, inca pacity to keep the mind on any subject, im pairmenl of memory, dizzy, sleepy, or ner vous feelings, gloomy forebodings and irri tability of temper. The blood itself being diseased as it forms the sweat upon the sur face of the skin, it is so irritating aod poison ous that it produces discolored brown spots, pimples, blotches and other eruptions, sores, boils, carbuncles aod scrofulous tumors. The stomach, bowels and other organs spok en of, cannot escape becoming affected sooner or later, and costiveness, piles, dropsy dys pepsia, diarrhoea, female weakness and many other forms of chronic disease, are among the necessary results. As a remedy for aU these various manifestations of disease, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is posi tively unequaled. By it the liver and stom ach are changed to an active, healthy state, the appetite regulated and restored, the blood and secretions thoroughly purified and en riched, and the whole system renovated and built up anew. Sold by all first-class drug gists. Mrs. Brick Pomeroy sued her husband for divorce in the United States Circuit of New York—Blatchtord, Judge. Brick, in his answer, said many things about his wife which her counsel, General Butler, moved to have stricken out as scandalous and impertinent. The Court made the order to strike out, and in its ruling upon this point said : ‘‘The matter referred to has no proper place in these pleadings. It is open to the further objection that, being irrelevant and impertinent, it is also scan dalous. It attributes to the plaintiff habit?, disposition, temper and acts which would warrant an action for libel against whoever should make such charges by printing or writing.” The Wild Geese do not regard Dr. Ayer’s wisdom in migrating north—such immense numbers of them as are flying over us now, while his almanac says • “Bleak and blus tering about this time, with heavy snow.”— Cedar Rapids (la.) Times, March 3. We were too fast last week in our item on the conflict between Dr. Ayer and the wild geese. The Doctor’s science beat their instinct this time. Not for years have we had such a snow-storm as that of last Sunday. The snow lies three feet deep on a level in Minnesota and two feet in Wisconsin, while the storm has swept from the Atlantic to the Rocky Mountains. Snow fell to various depths ns far south as Denver, Fort Union and Santa Fe. Learned as we believed Dr Ayer in the arcana of nature, and wonderful as we knew his medicines to be, we were not prepared for so signal an instance of his su periority, not only over the wise men, but the wisest of animals whose instinct is con sidered unfailing.
