The Now York Journal of Com merce contains a letter from California from which wo take the subjoined ac count: ' "The climate of this country contains Scene in Conum:. Thero nrc sometimes rich scenes exhibited in the Hall of the House of Itcpresentatives, which the regular Importers shrink from pourtrflying. One of these, adverted to by the Alexandria (Jnzettc, occurred every grade, in Monterey tire yeatiiasiMonuay, when tne bill making ccr- round the thermometer is from 42 to 8(rftain appropriations for the territory of degrees; but little difference between June or January. From October to March, is the rainy . season. With rare exceptions, from April to October, it never rains in California; the young vineyards have to be irrigated. When five or six years old, they do not need the trouble The wheat fields are never irrigated, and often produce 60 fold; 110 fold has been taken from a field, yet the seed is planted in a slovenly manner, and the harvest badly got in. Apples, pears and peaches require hardly any care; and what little they receive is but from a few. There are many orange trees in good condition. Perhaps any seed of fruits known in this latitude can be here brought forth with less labor than elsewhere, yet wheat is from to $2 per English bushel, corn $1, beans $2, barley $1, peas $2, potatoes $3 per 100 pounds, onions $6 ditto. Oak wood, cut from vacant land, the carting being onlv a mile, 8 dollars per cord. The country around Monterey is full of timber; trees without number, 10 feet in diameter, 250 feet long. The writer has often, when on horseback, been 'un able to see his companion 20 feet from him, a large tree lying between them.- There are actually some 16 feet through and 130 feet long; yet, with this abun dance of timber, window sashes, doors, wheel-barrows, cart-wheels, even axe handles and boards, are brought from New England. While a raw bullock's bide is worth but 2 dollars, a half tan ned one will bring 8 dollars. When at sor.ie places, in parts of the country, wheat may be worth but a trifle, a hun dred leagues distant United States flour may be selling at 14 dollars per barrel. Two sufficient reasons arc always before u, for this unnatural state of things in a beautiful country; first, the little desire the inhabitants, as a class, have for labor; second, the continual revolutions taking plane through the whole country." From the Jlemphis Eagle. Down Upon Them. Our patriotic opponents have all the honor and glory of involving the country in a war. Un able to prevent it by their wise and time ly, and prophetic councils, the whigs are now among the foremost in the battle field to whip the enemy into peace again. Not only this, but they have in vain en deavored in Congress to pay the soldiers ybo are now periling their lives on the , battle plain, 10 instead of $7, per month, with a grant of 160 acres of land at the end of the war. This the whigs pro posed, and tried to introduce a bill in Congress to that effect, every whig but Jive votingor it; and every locofoco but eight voting against it. And yet they have the outrageous impudence and vil lainous dishonesty to proclaim agains tthe whigs as opposing the war and refusing io assist in its prosecution. A more un justifiable, ynprovoked, contemptible slander was never uttered or insinuated "or one more reeking in vile falsehood. The demagogue Union at Washington gives birth to the foul lie, and its politi cal spawn over the whole country feast upon and re-proclaim it. Mr. Stewart, of Pfcnnsylvania, a gallant whig mem ber c Congress, in a recent debate in the House expised the meanness and hypocrisy of U doininantpprty in that body in opposir the bill attuded id for the better pay of the soldier, as fol lows: Mr. Stewart spoke on the bill and at tacked the dominant party of the House for voting in a body against all proposi tions to allow the volunteers $10 per month. He spared not the majority, but scored them right and left. He showed, by reference to the Journal, that all of them but eight had voted to fix the pay at $7 per month without bounty or a grant of l.tnd, while every whig but five had voted to give the volunteers $10 per month, with a grant of 160 acres of land at the end of the war! And this was the patriotism of these eight dollar per day "Democrats," who, or many of whom, are constantly charging the whigs with opposition to the war, either in feeling or in action. He said that he referred to these facts, as established by the Jourr$l, in order to defend himself and hit party from the unjust attacks made upon them by their opponents. We eai eh after three things honorv riches and repose. He who lives retired from the world gains honor ; he who is contented with what he has is rich; he who despises the world, and does not occupy himself with it, finds repose. A Good'. Why are mice like ears of corn! Because the cafell eat 'em. Iowa was pending. Mr. Felix Crundy McConnell not under iho influence of the Columbia Fountain, (says the (Ja zettc,) but something stronger propos ed sundry amendments, among which was ono appropriating $25,000 for the erection of a "public grocery" at the Falls of Niagara, and supplying it with the "creature comforts ;" and another, appropriating $2,000,000 "to break up the running gear (Felix is a saddler) of ruin and foul legislation." Some ol the amendments proposed by him were too indecent for publication ; and failing in his efforts, at last, to attract attention or to raise a laugh, (to the credit of the House, be it said,) he placed his lops upon his desk, and his head and shoul ders upon the seat of his chair, his body resting upon air. and in this position went to sleep! Richmond Whig, The Philadelphia U. S. Gazette says the situation of the administration, and its anger at the Whigs for sustaining this war, is very much like the case of the London cabman, who, angry at seeing the whip applied to a sore place on his horse, by way of getting him ahead, snatched the instrument away, and ex claimed, "Let that alone, sir: I keep that raw spot for my own use." Meantime the Whigs will continue to stand by the nation. Kosciusko Polyiiymsias Society. The members of tin's Society will meet at the Academy, on Friday evening next, at 8 o' clock P. M.
