Tiik Sacramento Union puts in a very (sensible plea for religious tole ration, extending it even to those who do not worship according to the Ubrislian or Jewish taith. Fagans, while they obey the laws oi the land, and do not interfere with or annoy other* in the performance oi their peculiar l itre. Ilia contended, should be accorded as mitohlibwlyof con srience. and be allowed to pay their devotions to the gods they worship without let or hindrance as freely »ft the Christian or Jew is permitted to exercise similar privileges. These remarks are elicited in answer to certain earping politicians who are »-king an atm ndtnenS to the Consti tution prohibiting the exercise or introduction of any religion iu the United Suie» not iuuudgd on the Bible. A comparwos between the couduci of professed Christians and Fagans with reference to religious matters tor tfie last few years, uud the contentions that are constantly arising between different sects of the tonner, leading olten to bloodshed, tools up greatly to the credit of the latter. , Dissipation spoils the memory. When the nervous system is over sli.«'dated by aioolud. tobacco, opi um, or hv anything that excites the brain, the result is unfortunate, it may incjytwe the brilliancy lor a time, but soon the constitution be tjenw* atb-eted by the over-stimula tion and the mind will consequently be more dull aud obtuse thgu ever. . ■ ---- u. —- ■ George Francis Train ha* gone to California from Oregon, and an uunnee* hi* tutentlob to lecture through Nevada, Idaho.
