Goose Lake. —lt seems this lake is still without any visible outlet. When the writer was there in August 1869, Goose Lake Slough, so called, flowed out of the Lake, and carried more water than Shasta River. About a year ago, however, the water ceased to flow out of the Lake above ground, and it seems it has not yet resum ed its flow, notwithstanding the excessive ly wet winter. An article in last week’s Oregon Sentinel gives an account of atrip to the lake by B. F. Dowell. After an unsuccessful attempt to go around the north end of the Lake, he turned back, and made his way to the south end. The ac count says: Here he expected to have to swim the outlet of Goose Lake into Pitt river; but to his great suppiise he found it dry and no water running out. The lake at the lower end is three or four miles longer than it was when Mr. Dowell, visited if in 1853- 4, but he was informed by the settlers that no water had flowed into Pitt river for the last twelve months ; and that the lake was still falling, notwithstanding Mr Dowell saw more water running into it than is in Rogue river, and more than half as much as in the Willamtte. It is a little inland sea, and its heavy dews extend lor miles around. The settlers have promising crops, and the hills and valleys are covered with the best of grasses Summer Resorts. —California is in many respects the most wonderful State in the nation. An amazing variety of climate is effected through its peculiar configura tion. There is a maritime climate along the sea border. We cross the coast range of bills and descend into the great valleys of the San Joaquin and Sacramento, and at once we tre in an atmosphere almost tropical. We climb to the plains beyond, and there wc are surrounded by the pecu liarities of the beautiful table lauds. Still further on, and up, we may pursue our path to the regions of snow, along the crests of the Sierras, the included domain stretch ing Irom the grandeur ol the sea to the n c sublimity of the mountains. The lofty, the beau iful, the sublime, the gigantic and grostesque, are curiously blended in this State. At the North, Mount Shasta rises to the height of 14.5U0 feet, while southeast, in Fresno county, Mount Whitnej towers five hundred feet higher, falling short only a lew hundred of the highest peak in Europe. We need not go to Switzerland to sec a romantic mountain lake, for high up in the bosom folds of the Sierras, li<*s Lake Tahoe, with its glorious expanse of witers that drop from snowy summits into the crystal depths. Altogeth er of another sort, is a body of water in Lake county, known as Borax Luke It is a remarkable curiosity, and well worth visiting. In Mono there is a diminutive counterpart of the Dead Sea. It is so laden with sail that it buoy's up the human form, and no fish can exist in its pungent wa ters. Nature seems to have tried her hand at a good deal of everything here There are strange freaks, as well a amazing wonders. In El Dorado county the limestone offers to the curious a suite of subterranean apart ments called the Coral Cove It contains the Dungeon ol Encha tment and the Crystal Chapel, both ol which are very wondei ful. The State abounds, too, in remarkable springs. There are boiling springs on the summit of Mt. Shasta, and in the American Valley there are springs which petnly wood. It would be hard to find anything more curious than the great laboratory which nature has set up in a wild ravine in the noith of Souau a county —the gey sers —where the strangest things are hud dled together. The stream running through the Gap changes color three times, and the visitors walks over mountain slopes perfor ated hy innumerable blow holes out ol which boiling steam issues continually.— Time would fail to refer to and describe the various places of Summer resort, but ol all that we have ever seen, we should ad vise our readers to go to Yosemite or the Big Trees of Calaveras and Mariposa. It will cost someth ng, to be sure, but the grand spectacle will never be forgotten in this life. —Oakland News.
