It-was thc face of a lovely wo- inan ; vet thc boauty which was so attractive was min"lcd with .1 straii"0 exprcssion of dis- I contcnt. or moroscncss, which "ave a sinsular c? . - . ' air to hcr anDcarancc. There was somcthins, I too, in that face which was familiar to me, and once, as I caugbt thc sounil ot hcr voicc. 1 fclt that thrill of emotit-n which a remcmbered i riedly to my companion, Mrs. .asking if she knew thc Iady. My own voicc was ratbcr ; Joudcr than it should uavc bccn, and as I tuni' ed toward hcr agam, I caught hcr full black eye, directcd with a searchiiiggaze in my face. A dozeu timcs afterward 1 mct that gaze. and 23 oflen cauS1 a st.ranSu smile, almost a sncer. on hcr lip, which more than all clsc pazzled me ; for I know that I had somewhere scen tnat smiic Deiore. It was aftcr midmght that I fook my accus tomcdstroll by thc surf-side. Thc musie of . the water waj unusually deep and solemn, ar.d as Wdlis exprcssosit, Jhe wavcs werc tcl linff stories of morc important and morc mourn 1 . ,1 , ,., w i,.i ,1 ., ful lmport than usual. e had thrown our- ; selves'down on the SAnd,and were lying silcnt, and I. at least. was drcaming of distant sccncs. and eara which the surf roar was clsewherc sinnnc to swcct slumbcx, when we warc a- rouscd by the approaeh of a gentlcman and ladv. who nassed as.

Thc placc I vi-iitcd was about a lcajuc in cxtcnt ; 011 this werc a- bout fifiy tcnts ; many havo not even this cov criri". At onc tcnt, bclonging to cight single mcn. I rcmaincd two or thrcc davs. 1 hesc mon had two machincs made in a day ; froin 80 to 100 fcct, inch lioards, and vcry ronjihly put togctlicr. Thcir form was somcthing likc a child's cradle, wiihout the ends ; at one end therc was a movcablc sicvc or rack to waL down thc dirt, and shakc oiTthe ftoncs. Holcs werc madc in thc bottom of the machuic 10 caich thc gold this wash stoppcd, and this was scrapcd out hourly. Ihcse two mai-Innrs gath- crcdcachdayl was prcscnt thrcc-foiirths lo onc pound cach, bcing thrcc to four ounccs of gold pcrman. 1 hC5C mcn Iiau workcd oneMei-k with tin pans ; thc last wcck wilh the niachine. I saw thc rcsult of Ihe first dav's work of two brothcrs, (Amencans) onc had sovcn dollars. the other ci"hty-two: thcy workcd ou thc samc fnc yards ot land ; one, however, woikcd less than the wholc day. i hcir plan, hkc Iuitid- rcds of othcrs, was firat with a pick and shovcl clcar ofi'two fcct of thc top carth. thcn put in a tin pan or woodcn bowl a sliovel of dirt, go into ninning wa'cr, with the hand stir up the dirt and lieavc out thc stoncs, until thcy have rcmaining a spoonlul ol cmcry or black sand, coiilaining one to inc dollars. Jhis can bc donc once or twicc a day. Each day is causiii!i some saving ofhdior bv the improvcments in thc rough mni hincs now in use. Thc day I lcft, some small companies of five to eight nicn-had machincs froin nhich thcy anticip.itc five or six hundred dollars a day. Therc ccitainly must this day he at wo'rk on the dilfcrcnt 1'laccrs scvcral hundrcils of Anicricans and othcrs, who are clcaningonc ounccofgold a dav. I havo this wcck sccn in Montcrcy a Califbriuan, who shows four hundred dollars of gold from thc l.ibor of onc wcck : much of it was the size of whcat.

In this case thc addi son of workmen now joining thc first oncs, and thc emigrants from the Atlantic States we sh.dl liave in Octobcr and I'cccuihcr, will soon swcll tho value of California gold that will bc TRLshcd out to an unheard-of value. Many who havc sccn thc "J'lacer," think ifl will last thirtv or lorty ycars. 1 snouiu iiunjc tliat it would'aflbrd norlc two or thrcc years to many thousands of pcoplc, and may for vc ry many ycars, as I cannot calculatc thc cxtcnt of country h.-uing gold.
