A few weeks ago the bed of the river Klaraith, in California, suddenly rose several feet, convert ing the stream into a broad and shallow tor rent, The Yrolca Journal explains the phe nomena as follows : Tlie river, where the uprising took place, was verv deep, with a slate rock bottom, which the eddies of the river gradually wore through, making as escape for a strata of chalk formation, heavily pressed, no doubt, by the bill back of the bank, which sunk down level at the same time tho bed of the river rose up. As the original bank, with large trees along ir, between tho sunken hill and river channel remained firm, the natural supposition is that the foundation of that locality is of solid rock with a vacuum from which the chalk sub stance emanate!. Sinco the rbc in the river from last week's rain-, the stream is fast washing away the chalky incumbrance intru ding it original channel. The- locality is about thirty mile from Yroka, and we learn that pome of oitr citizens contemplate visiting the scene. Nkwpfers in Calipohsia.

CAL- For the Iwt fonr years the population of this State has not increased as rapidly as Mime of the moru sanguine had predlctetl. We have gained tn permanent settler, and hac lost in floating twpulation. Tliere never were so gn.at a number of inhabitants on the Pa cific coast as now. Some of the causes which have retarded the more rapid influx of population into Cali fornia arc now inoperative. Tlie rebellion drew population from this coast, t?a revers ing the predictions of many who reckoned up on influences of an opposite charact r. Tb opportunities suddonly preenteI in the At lantic States for the nijiid acquisition of wealth, were deemed as favorable a were over found here in the palmiest days of pla cer mining.

This want pf security has ojierated disastrous ly mwn the Increase of permanent homes. Im proved real estate in many instance, could not be uiwd as Mjeurity for loans, bcM of controverted title.
