The California mountain*.
The following is an extract from a late
article in the San Francisco Alta :
From Lassen's Peak, about 11,000 feet
high, in latitude 41 deg. 30 min? there is
a distinct view of Mount Pitt, in latitude
42 deg. 30 min. to the north, Mount Ham
ilton 37 deg. 20 min. to the south, of Star
Peak, at the bend of Humboldt, to the
.east, and the western point of the Siskiyou
mountains to the west, which points in
clude a distance of 360 miles along the
meridian, and 300 miles the other way.
Mount Shasta is still higher than Lassen
and gives a still more extensive view in
several directions.
These mountains and their scenery have
long been familiar, by description at least,
to the people of this State, but it was left
for the Geological Survey to make known
the most wonderful mountain region of
California, Shasta, which towers, in soli
tary grandeur, 7,000 feet above everything
in its vicinity and shows its mantle of
eternal snow to a wide area in three States,
is no longer our highest peak. Another
mountain, which is surrounded by so
many other peaks of nearly equal hight as
to attract no special attention from a dis
tance, rises still higher. This new peak,
not yet named, rises to about 15,000 feet,
while Shasta is only 14,440.
Not only is Shasta dethroned, but also
Switzerland. The Helvetian Republic
has, for hundreds of years, had the fame
of possessing the largest body of elevated
land, and the largest number of great
peaks within the limit of high civilization,
but the newly discovered mountain region
surpasses Switzerland. That country has
only four peaks above 13,000 feet, and not
more than 150 square miles about 8,000
feet, while we have 100 peaks above 13,000
feet and 300 or more square miles above
8,000 feet.
This Alpine region of California occu
pies the upper part of the Sierra Nevada
from Castle Peak to Kern river, a distance
of 200 miles; and throughout that dis
tance all the main peaks rise to 13,000 or
more. The highest mountain, or the one
which is regarded as the highest, is about
latitude 36 deg. 30 miu. Its exact hight
is not known. The surveying party made
two trials in July last to get to the sum
mit, but failed. C. R. King reached an
elevation of 14,730 feet, and was there ar
rested by a precipice. He thought there
were 300 or 400 feet of elevation above
him. The main fork and the North fork
of Kem river rise on the southern and
western slopes of this mountain, and
King's river on its northwestern slope.
The main fork of Kern river runs south
ward for thirty miles through a tremen
dous canon, in the upper part of which
the river falls 10,000 feet within six miles.
There is another canon of great size on
the North fork of King's river. A party
of prospectors tried for several weeks to
get down into it with pack animals, but
i could not find a place wherethe descent
was gradual enough.

No name has been given to tne mgoesi
peak, and many other points were left
without names. Professor Brewer, who
was at the head of the surveying party
who discovered them, thought that he
would leave them nameless until some In
dian titles could be discovered. A moun
tain whose summit is six miles east of
Mono Lake, and 7,000 feet above it? a
pretty steep ascent ? is called Mount
Dana. A peak further south, with an
elevation of 13,700 feet, is called Mount
Grant; another of 14,500 feet is called
Mount Tyndall ; n third is styled Mount
From Castle Peak, in latitude 38 degs.,
for a distance of two hundred miles along
the summit of the Sierra, there is no pass
known feasible for a wagon, or less than
11,000 feet in altitude. It would not be
safe to assert, however, that no lower pass
will be discovered. Much of the range
has not yet been examined.
Throughout all this Alpine region the
views are very extensive, and the scenery
grand beyond that of Switzerland, though
not so picturesque ; that is, not so beauti
ful in little places. At some future time
it will become a place of great resort for
tourists and travelers.
Singular issue of a Wbdding Cek
emoxy. ? A novel illustration of the well
known aphorism. " There's many a slip
between the cup and the lip," occurred, in
Antrim, Ireland, lately. The clergyman
in the course of the service, asked if any
present knew of any just cause or imped
iment why the aspirants for matrimony be
fore him should not be joined in that holy
estate. The query was responded to by a
young gentleman in the body of the
church, who protested that, he had just
reason to forbid the bans ; and requested
permission to put a question to the bride.
This was accorded him, and in a manly
voice he asked her if she had not, som'e
two yean since, pledged her troth to him.
The fair fiancee hung her head and an
swered. " Yes and while her intended
husband, in concert with the entire assem
blage, gazed in utter bewilderment on the
scone, the ftckle fair one put a climax to
the proceedings by adding, " And I will
keep my word !" Instantty seizing her
former lover by the arm, she swept with
him in majesty from the church, and en
tering one of the carriages which had
driven the party to the sacred edifice,
drove off at locomotive speed with her re
covered swain to the residence of her
mother, leaving the poor fellow in the
church to ruminate over the inconstancy
of fickle woman.
It is stated to be a rule of ttw in the far
western territories that " a town is a place
where whisky is sold." By means of this
rule the courts distinguish real towns
from those which exist only on p?p?r
plans of land speculators.
Tsars of the soul have ewr filled the

The following is a complete and correct
abstract of the Constitution of the State of
Nevada, adopted on the seventh day of Sep
tember. It is greatly condensed, occupying
but a fraction of the room required for the
publication of the whole document, but will
be found equally useful and far more con
venient for reference :

tion adopting the Constitution of the United
states and an ordinance forever prohibiting *la

state of the Federal Union to dissolve their con
nection therewith, or perform any act tending to
impair, subvert or resist the supreme authority
of the Government of tho United States. The
Constitution of the United States confers full
power on the Federal Government to maintain
and perpetuate its existence, and whensoever any
portion of the States, or people thereof, attempt
to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly re
sist the execution of its laws, the Federal Gov
ernment may, by warrant uf the Constitution,

The most considerable change from the old
Constitution in this Article is in the " paramount
allegiance" clause of Section 2, which in the old
Constitution rend thus : " But the paramount al
legiance of every citizen is due to the Federal
Government ; and no power exists in the people
of this or any other State in the Federal Union to
dissolve their connection therewith, or perform
any act tending to impair, subvert or resist the
supreme authoritv of the Government of the
United States. The Constitution of the United
states confers full power on the Federal Govern
ment to maintain and perpetuate its existence,
and whensoever any portiou of the States, or peo
ple thereof, attempt to secede from the Federal
Union, or forcibly resist the execntionof its laws,
the Federal Government may, by warrant of the
Constitution, employ urmed force in compelling
obedience to its authority."
Section 11 of the old Constitution, prohibiting
the Legislature from granting special privilege*,
etc., was stricken out. aa being sufficiently provi
ded for in the article on Legislative Department.
The words u libel or slander " were inserted
in Section 14, relative to imprisonment for debt,
on account of the adoption of stringent provi
sions for the prevention and punishment of duelling
The provision in Section 1!?, relative to con
victious of treason, was not contained in the old
Section 1 confers the right of suffrage on every
white male citizen of the United states, twenty
one yearn of age nnd upwards, " who Hhall have
actually and not constructively resided in the
State Mix mohths, nnd in the district or county

in nay State or Territory of the United States,
unless restored to civil rights, and no person who,
after arriving at the age of eighteen years, shall
have voluntarily borne arms against the United
State* or held civil or military office under the
so-called Confederate States, or either of them,
unless an amnesty be granted to sneh by the
Federal Government, and no idiot or insane per
son, shall be entitled to the privilege of an elector.
Section 2 provides that no person shall be
deemed to have gained or lost residence for the
purpose of voting while In the service of the
United States, while a student in any seminary of
learning, nor while kept in an3' almshouse, asy
lum or prison ut the public expense.

tration is required of such voters.
Secliou 4 prohibits urrests on civil process on

cepted, one-half to go fbr State and one-half for
county purpose*. The payment of such tax may,
in the discretion of the Legislature, bo made a
condition to the right of voting.
Section 8 relates to the qualifications of voters
on the adoption or r^jectkm of this Constitution.
In Section 1 tfce words " actually and not con
structively" were not in the old Constitution.?
They were inserted to prevent the possibility of
reckoning the residence or the voter from the
time he leaves some other Suite or county to
come to Nevada. In the last paragraph of the
Bee don, after "Idiot or insane," the words or
disloyal person" occurred in the old Constitution.
These were stricken out on the ground of vague
ness and uncertainty, nnd because the preceding
part of the proviso was alleged to cover tue
KITh" VroTltinu'ln Section 6 roRardtDg additional
outbs or tests of electoral qualifications WM.not
contained, at least specifically, in the old Con
stitution. There are some other changes in the
