"The author goes into an examination of the statistics of
California to ascertain ber actual value to the country, com
pared with her cost. He gives her full credit for her gold,
examines her other resources, agricultural and commercial,
and comes to the conclusion that, in spite of the treasure
she has been pouring so liberally into the world s lup, sue
has uot yet paid for liersclt: Much space is devoted to the
question of her present solvency and her future prospects,
and the views advanced are to us novel. A residence ot
three Years in California, in which the author has, at d.tler
ent periods, dwelt in all its regious, from San t rancisco up
to the mines, has given him a right to speak upon it, and he
utters no half-way opinion. He is positive in his statements,
and copious in his citations of facts bearing upon them.
There is a fairshare of adventure in this volume. The author
sees all the lions of the Eureka State, goes into the drinking
and gambling saloons of San Francisco, and gives us an ac
count of their interior, witnesses a bull and bear tight and
describes it very minutely, meets with Chinese, Digger lu
diaus, and all the mixed nations that frequent the new State,
works at the mines, both Northern and Southern, and gives
in his experience, which, in one case at least, is very amus
ing, and, in short, presents a picture of the entire country
she saw it. We believe the book is destined to attract at
tention. There is a freshness and naitfte about it which
removes it from the class of common works of travel.
S'lihei n Quarterly Rioiew.
" Aside froui his own experience, the author advances a
number of statistics and general fiiets iu proofs of ihe truth
and iu vindication of the severity of his allegations. The
book is very eutertnining, and will be read w.th great in
terest bv every bodv." Baltimore San.
" The" author is a'North Carolinian. He has written his
book in a very agreeable style, and relates many interesting
incidents." Baitimor- O.tpper.
"It is well written, and cannot be read but with wonder
and amazement. The work must have a great sum."
y Mr. Helper supports his inferences aud deductions b.v
ati array of tacts and figures which stand out in hold relief
when contrasted with the statements sometimes made and
believed that California is hardly ies-s than an earthly para
dise. As we design shortly to give an extended notice of
the book, we forbear more" com moot at ihe present time,
farther than to say that trt have aiso resided for several years

THE SOUTH HAS TOO LONG BEEN DEPENDENT
upon the northern cities for its periodical literature.
The weekly newspapers of Bofton, New York, and Phila

south of Mason and Dixon's Line, many of them carrying
with them some of the prejudices of abolitionism; and in
culcating, to a greater or less extent, doctrines injurious to
southern institutions. This dependence of the mesa of
southern readrs should be thrown off and it is believed
would have been long ago, if there had been facilities in
the South for the publication of first class literary papers.
Is published by a gentleman who has long been connected
with some of the southern dailies, and has been undertaken
to supply this want that of a high -tared weekly paper
Of Southern interest and character.
The general plan of the paper is as follows: It has eight
pages; three of which sre filled with the best articles ou
Literature, Science, and the Arts; one to the editor's com
ments upon passing themes; one to general news, foreign
and domestic; one o the interests ot the Farmer the in
formation on this page w;ll be mainly derived from the Ag
ricultural Bureau of the U. S. Patent Office ; one to a syn

be rigidly adhered to, and which is unequalled by any paper
in the country. North or South.

Its quarto form makes it convenient for binding, and each
annual volume being accompanied by a full index, it will be
a most valuable paper for preservation and reference.
