EMIGRATION to CALIFORNI A.
To day, three steamers leave this
port on their way towards California.
Such an event presents a favorable
opportunity for a few reflations
Suggested hy the fact itself, anil bv the
apparent diminution in the ntimbors
emiirrntinff to the California gold
mines. Never before, in the history
tif human enterprise and of coloniza
tion, has any country received, in so
short a period, within iti wild and
Uncultivated fidils, so rrianv adventur
ers; rtnd when wc consider that these
men have left rt republic bounteously
blessed with prosperity, and alwavs
jjenerous to industry, the phenomenon
becomes still more interesting and
Important. Though, as we have of.
ten urged the same amount and spir-
It of industry exerted iti agriculture,
Upon a rich soil, would contribute
quite as much to the general happi-
tiess of those engaged upon it as theS
products of gold mines, vet the com-
mon mind does not readily perceive
this great axiom of public economy,
nnd is not stimulated by the truth
dwelling in the thought. Gold itself
is a tangible substance, when perceiv -
ed. Thought, or a great principle of
action, lies much deeper. Equally
oble, if equally respected and sought.
and treasured, to enrich mankind, it
must give way to a great practical
result, such as the labor in the mines
so substantially furnishes, liven the
successful of individual laborers, in
trade, in commercial designs, in ngii
culture within the territory of dill
foruia, fail to draw off, by their exam
ple, and by their prosperity, any large
numner o' tnose whose imngtnati ns
have been inflamed by the prize lumps
of gold found by some fortunate delver
of the soil. In lotteries, all purchasers
xpeci to he winners. In the Call
forma gold lottery, wc perceive the
same credulous hope the same spirit
of adventure, as in any other scheme
ofchance. The world has proved
that labor on the soil, even of the
sterile countries, always enriches the
husbandman; but the failure f thou
sands in California to obtain a "pile"
of dust, does not check the growth
and perseverance in the desire of sud
den fortune. Men, except in individ
ual instances, seek to become rii:h by
the swiftest means, unmindful that
without labor, man is a misery tn
himself, and dead to a national wealth
as useless as a gambler or a dealer
It has been supposed, recently, that
this feverish desire, based on oxtravt
gant hopes of sudden wealth, has
abated in the United States, and manv
persons have too willingly asserted
that the emigration to California is
nearly at an end. This, we believe,
to be a decision, not in accordance
with truth. In the spring of the
present year, thousands upon thou
sands turned their steps towards Cali
fornia, seeking it by various routes,
ond filling ship after ship with crowd
ing hundreds. The tide of enterprise
tending in that direction was largely
swollen. Around the Cape, by Pa
nama, and across the plains, thousands
departed; all inspired by one intclli
gence, by one will, to reach the mines
in the most favorable season for reap
ing the anticipated harvest. Most of
these persons were poor men, who
had not the means to sustain them
selves during the wet season, when
i-L.. : ri;r : .. i i: i

itself becomes, nt best, but a drenm of
patience and deprivation. This is
the reason why few are now on their
way to the mines. Those who now
go thither must be prepared to sojourn
there, without any income from labor,
for months after their arrival, and
those who have not prepared for sudi
fiatient inaction, will find themselves
ike the foolish virgins in the parable.
On the whole, therefore, we are not
surprised that the emigration has
diminished within a few weeks, while.
at the same time, we are equally well
atislied that, at a more propitious
season, the annual tide will again be
noticed sweeping onward a whole sen
of heads towards the Pacific, and ex"
hibiting the same spectacle that was
beheld with such astonishment last
year. We have thousands, in this
metropolis alone, ready to start nt a
proper and convenient season. iV. Y.

A friend of ours, whose chief, if not
only failing, was a penchant for good
liquors, was asked a few days ago,
by a close-fisted old customer to par
take of some verv old whiskey, which
he valued verv highly. He consent
ed not reluctantly, when his hospita
ble entertainer took the bottle and
poured out what our friend regarded
as a very small dose. The latter,
taking the glass and holding it above
his head, remarked rather scepticallv
"you say tl is is lorty years old."
"Yes," replied the host. "Then." re.
plied our friend, "all, I have to say is
that it's dd small for its age."

they go before a magistrate A tear,

says she is agrieved. and if she can
fill it with tears, the magistrate says:
I perceive you have been harshlv
