STINBURY AMERICAN AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL.
California Jfcios. CALIFORKtA iJITELLIOEHCaT. Mr. Frenner, of the tioayune, writing onj the 81st of August,' gives ihe following ac count of the pRosrsjHTr, or iai mANCisco. No pen can describe properly the progress of Improvement in this country. The first we hear in the morning and the last we hear at night is the noise of the hammer and the taw. It is utterly impossible for any person to keep pace with the onward march of gen oral melioration in all things. Walk the town of San Francisco to-day and make a memorandum of all the new houses, and. some one will follow right after and report the erection of m new building. I came hith er about three months ago, and since that time the town has more than quadrupled in size. Comtneice and trade of every kind keep pace with the increase of the buildings. The streets are filled with merchandise, while the beach is fairly covered with goods) -arriving and shipping for the coast and livers. Real estate is cash in hand and sixty days, but still it has continued steadily to advance. Within the last two months it has risen more than 100 per cent. There is nothing we feel , the waut of so much as a mint. Large amounts of gold dust nre daily arriving from the mines, but it is with the greatest diffi culty coin enough can be procured to pay duties and. this scarcity reduces the value of the dust to 815 per ounce. The harbor pre sents a perfect forest of masts, affording a most beautiful and lively scone. Some of the finest Bhips in the world float on our wa Jers, rivalling each other in beauty and speed. THE COURTS AND THE LAWYERS. The same writer sketches the law proceed ings in the following paragraph: Col. Geary, who was unanimously chosen by the people of San Francisco District for the responsible office of Alcalde, has entered on the discharge of his duties in good ear nest. His court is thronged with business day after day. Although every person ap pears to be making money here by attending to his business, we cannot afford to sacrifice the luxury of a little law. No portion of '.he community is exempt. Mechanics and tra ders, land speculators and merchants, ship masters and sailors all alike indulge in the propensity. ' We have some very clever limbs of the law practising at our court, but at the same time we have nn abundance of the most miserable sticks any portion of the world ever witnessed. A friend of mine re marked a few days since, that as we had no statutes for California, that the lawyers in troduced a little from the different State sta tutcs in the Union, a little from English, a little from French, a little from Dutch, and a little from Spani.-h and then drew lots for which they understood best. The alcalde is no doubt bothered somewhat in the dispensa tion of justice, by the crotchets of the law yers. I understand that a few days since ho tendered his personal responsibility to one and held another to answer as one gentleman holds another ; but. in both instances his firm ness and nerve were a little more than the offenders of ofliciul dignity were willing to encounter. As we have no jail, some of the citizens have un idea of petitioning his honor to hickory the fellows when they misbehave in court. a CALtronxuN'a experience, The following is extracted from a private letter, written to the New Orleans Bulletin, by one who made the trip in one hundred days by the Corpus Christi route. After giv, ing an amusing account of his adventures and a description of San Francisco, he says: "A small 16 x 38 weatlior-boarded house rough inside and out, has cost 528,000, and rents for S2000 a year, payable in advance Building lots are worth from 54000 to 810,000. I pity the poor devils who have bought and built at these prices, for in six months they will not be able to realize one-tenth of their outlay. Those who have come out with goods are bound to lose money. Goods have been shipped from all the Pacific ports, which can always supply the country with the re quired provisions, uur menu here gives the storjr of his travel to the diggins, and then says: The gold is not on the surface, as has been represented, but you havo to di: i e .1 , . jecp ior ii, tear up me soiui rncK, wort in the water, and then it is all luck whether you get much or none. Tho work is of the hard est kind, and after trying it, I may candidiy eay, that 1 would rather drivo a dray or roll boxes on the Levee, than follow it np. To all who purpose corning out, I would advise them first to bugin at daylight and carry kegs ot nails, boxes or tin, or any other heavy packages from the sidewalk of any street in New Orleans, carry them into the store and pile them up, do not etop for breakfast, or lunch or liquor; at noon stop an hour and eat a small piece of salt pork and a ship's biscuit, and then work until sundown, and see how you feel. If you can then find comfortable night's sleep on the ground, un der a tree, with single blanket and a million ants running ovor you, and enjoy all this, you can then coino out to California and live six months, and be able to save with good luck at digging, from 8300 to $15,000. It is all in the luck, for where there is one who has made 85000 or 810;000, there are 500 who have not $500, and all doing the same labor There is no doubt, that California is one vast gold mine, but it requires much hard labor to get it out. Five years hence, when labor can be hired, regular mining companies will realize fortunes." The letter concludes by saying, that if the church gels as many repentant sinner within the year, as there are repentant miners at the "diggings," her population and prosperity will be enormously increased. DO KOT IS!. ON APFEARAKCES. We were-informed yesterday, by a peron who stated it a a fact, that on the landing of the steamship Falcon, an individual oarne on bore without hat, coat or boot. After look ing around hun for tome lime, with a free aud easy, independent kind of an air, he call. ed to a drayman and requested him to take charge of a pair of saddlebags, which were on board the vessel, and convey them to Hew lett . Willi soma hesitation tha drayman complied with bit request, but ba attempt Ing to lift the saddlebags, he found he wasj unable to do to without assistance. The fact was, that, they contained $40,000 in gold, which the ceatless, hatless and bootless man had brought with him from California. We will guarantee that his costume to-day would not disgrace an habitut of Broadway. Truly, appearance are fallacious and ' deceptive. N.O.Pic. OAMBMKO AT SAN FRANCISCO. , The number of gambling establishments, or rather gambling tables, In San Francisco, cannot fail to surprise any visitant, however familiar he may have previously been in such establishments,' more quietly conducted, in the United States. Almost every hotel, re fectory and drinking establishment, of which there are at least a hundred within the pres ent limits of the city of San Francisco, con tains from two to half-a-dozen, ami some of them even a greater number than this, of these tables, comprising every game in the gambler's catalogue. All theso are thrown entirely open to the whole public, and ore nightly thronged by the promiscuous popula tioii hero assembled of every conceivable clime, sex and color. One oambler, who commenced business on a large scale, has al cady been fleeced during the week he has been here, by those betting ncainst his bank,'" to the tune of some $600. which was promptly paid. One of those belters, a pas senger in the Panama also, has during th6 same limn won 810,000. This species of gambling is scarcely less precarious now than the speculations in buildiuff lots, bascil, ns these speculations are known to lie, chiefly on credit. I am assured, by one whose posi tion gives him great facilities for obtaining correct information, that there is not less than $7,000,000 of paper, issued upon real estate transactions, now afloat in San Francisco and vicinity 40 leet. From a point directly under trie upper termination of thetod, lay off in etery d'ywetion a line 80 feet in length, and tht rod will protect every part of ttie building that falls within a line drawn from the latter point to the upper end of the rod. The point of the rod ought to be plated with gold or silver lo prevent it from rusting, and thereby becoming blunt. One point is of as much benefit is three. The staples by which the rod Is fastened to the Wilding should be made of glass, oT if these can hot be procured, Iron staples will air swer, provided they enclose glass tubes to prevent a contact of the metals. It must on no account directly touch any f art of the building. The lower end of the rod must extend at least four feet below the surface of the ground, or until It reaches a place which 5s moist in the dryest seasons. If a stream of water is convenient it would be still better to let the rod project into it Or you may let the end drop into your well. If the soil is very dry and no water near, a few bushels of powdered charcoal ought to be placed around the end of the rod. Protected by a rod constructed in ac cordance with these directions, your build ing will be perfectly safe from the danger of lightning. All others are wholly in adequate, and increase the peril. THE AlftEPJCLlT. SUXBURY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 90, 1M9. H. B. MASSER, Editor and Proprlrlor. NOTICE. As the lat firm of Mnwer & Eiselv was dissolved in March 18-18, and the books left in the hands of H. B. Masser for collection, persons are hereby notified to set tle with and par over to the sain II. U. Mas ter any balance due for advertising or sub scription to the American. K Venice a Desert. Recent accounts give a gloomy picture of the appearance of Venice. The city had become a desert. The place of St. Mare was one vast solitude and not a vessel was to be seen in the La guneg. It is slated that no less than fifty thousand persons had demanded and ob tained passports, and that they intended to quit Venice forever. ADDRESS OV HE FEOfLK V CANADA IK I FAWR OK AJUlfeXATlOil TO THE UNITED STATES. The people of. Montreal favorable to the annexation of Canada With the United States, have issued an address in favor of that pro ject The address is of considerable length, and brings up for brief discussion various remedies which have been proposed for the amelioration of the. present depressed and suffering condition f 'Canadian commerce and industry. After pronouncing upon the inefficiency of those remedies to give to Can ada permanent prosperity and social harmony, the address declares there is but one remedy, of ail suggested, which deserves serious con deration, but one to which the Canadian people can look with confidence as calculated to promote the best interests of their coun try, develope its commercial and industrial resources, and terminate those party animosi ties, jealousies, strivings and scenes of blood shed which disquiet and degrade its present social system. This final remedy con sists in a "friendly and ptaceallt separation from British connexion, and a union upon eqni table terms with tht great North American Confederacy of Sovereign States." Without the consent of Great Britain, separation is considered neither practicable nor desirable. But the colonial policy of the present Siatei aud the avowals of her leading statesmen, leave them no longer room to doubt that it is the resolve of England to invest them wilh the attributes, and to compel them to assume the burdens of independence, and they de clare that it is weakness in them not to pro vide against such intentions. There are no aish recriminations against England, the peaceful consummation of tha object is alone sought. This temperate and considerate ad- ress is signed by 325 names, among whom are Benj. Holmes, formerly Cashier of the Montreal Bank, now in Parliament, and J. G McKenzie, the leading Tory. Fifty are Lib1 erals and the rest Tories. feROM OREOOIf. Advices from Oregon City have been re ceived to the Slstof July. B. ft. Thurston nas bee 'elected Delegate to Congress. Nine hundred and forty-three votes have been poitea. The Legislature convened on the 16ih of July. Both Houses were at length organised by the election of Democratic offi cers. . GatAT Cavirk. At the Scientific Conven lion, recently held at Boston, a paper, writ ten by Prof. Hereford, was read, in which an account is given of a cave, situated about twelve miles from the Mammoth Cave, in Kentucky, and supposed to be larger than it Mr. J. S. Stevenson, of Bowling Green, has penetrated it a distance of five miles, and it then seemed still expanding. Fjee is TAMAyi'A. A destructive fire occurred in this place last week. The Centre street Hotel, owned and kept by Peter Mead, a cabinet maker shop, and se. veral small buildings were totally destroyed. EDITOR'S TABLE. Business pollers.

Some of our exchanges are already naming candidates for the Speakership of the Senate. Among them we notice the name of Gen. Wm. F. Packer of Lycoming. This gentleman has had considerable legislative experience and as a presiding officer is unequalled. All who havo witnessed the ease and dignity with which he filled the Speaker's chair, in the House, for two consecutive sessions, will be clad to learn that the democratic Senators have an eye on him, for this situation in the Senate. We hope such will be the case. LIGHTNING RODS. The season just passed has been remark able ior the fewness of its thunder storms. Almost every week during the summer we have to record the destruction of valuable property, and loss of invaluable lives by that terrible agent, lightning. In very many cases the calamity could have been warded ofTby the timely erection of a good lightning rod. We occasionally see these articles placed along side of a house or barn, but seldom find them constructed in such a manner as to protect against the danger. To afford protection, it is abso lutely necessary to have them properly erected, and when they are not so, the long iron point only invites the electric fluid to discharge itself upon them in all its force, and inevitable destruction must follow. This improper construction leads many, who do not understand the principle on which they act, to distrust their efficacy. 1 heir action is thus explained. A needle, or any pointed metalic body, held within an inch or two of a substance charged with electricity, will gradually draw of the whole charge, without any perceptible shock, the electricity passing through the body, which is an excellent conductor, in to the earth. So when a cloud, similarly charged, passes over a building, a pointed metalic rod elevated a sufficient he ht a. bove,and perfectly insulated from the latter, will harmlessly pass the fluid from it to the earth. But if the rod touches the build ing, the electricity will be as likely to leave the rod and enter it, as to pass into the earth. Thus a house furnished with a bad lightening rod is in a more dangerous con dition, than one without, and the means tanen to protect, become an instrument of destruction. The best substance that can be used in the manufacture of a lightning rod is cop per, but ii this can not be procured, or if found too expensive, iron will answer the purpose. The rod may be either round or square, and its diameter should be not less than three-fourths of an inch ; for other wise the excessive heat accompanying a powerful discharge would melt it. The metalic communication must be preserved throughout its whole length, and to accom plish this, the joints ought to be screwed to. gether, a globule of mercury being dropped into the joint before it is put together, fastening the pieces together by links ii utterly ineffectual. The length of the rod must be governed by the size of the build ing it is intended to protect. The rule is that the rod will protect a cone whose base ii four times the length of the rod. For example, suppose tht height of the rod to A Fine Bold-faceh Villain. An adroit scamp lately succeeded in passing himself upon the Hon. H. Clay as a brother of Speak erWinthrop; and in that character accom panied him to Ashland, where he was intro duced to a number of Mr. C's particular friends, from whom he succeeded in borrow ng sundry sums of money, and then vamosed. Had the subject of this trick been an ordina ry person, it would have excited little sur prise : but being H. Clay, a veteran judge of human nature in all its phases, it certainly argues no small share of address in the opera' tor. He bids fair, we think, to attain to I high eminence in his profession, if notprcma turely checked in his career. rU" Near Pottstown, Pa., on Friday eve ning last, about a dozen cars were knocked into any quantity of small pieces, in conse quence of a locomotive running into them. No lives lost. IXF" Kissing another man's wife by mi iaKe, our imp very appropriately terms a blunder-buss. K7" Rail Roau Accident. On Monday last, a son of Mr. John B. Shipman, of this Iloroiigh, employed on the Rail Road, was run over and severely injured by one of the coal trains. The cars passed over his leg, below the knee, mangling it horribly. V. B. Palmer's Register.-We have before us this monthly journal published in Boston, New York and Philadelphia, by the well known newspaper agent. V. B Palmer. It is well printed, and full of valuable statistics and scientific and busi ness articles. Hankinc Capital or Different Cities.

Pittsburg, Augus ta Ga., Albany and Richmond, each have rising two millions of bank capital, and Sa vannah, Salem, New Haven, Cincinnati!, Lexington, Ky.. Mobile, Troy, N. Y., New ark, New Bedford, Uliea, Petersburg, Va., Rochester, Wilmington, Washington and Port' land, have each more than one million. Senator Benton. The St. Louis He pub lican says that Col. Benton intends being in that ciiy to attend the Pacific Railroad Con vention. After tho Convention he intends making a tour through as many of the south eastern counties as his time will permit be fore the meeting of Congress. It is also his purpose lo return from Washington at an ear ly day next season, and continue the agila. tion of his appeal from the instructions of the Legislature to the people, up to the time of the holding of the next August election. Canada. The Montreal Courierof the 9th, contains the outlines of an annexation associa tion question by legitimate and constitution means. The first proposal is to offer a pre. mium of from 300 to $500 for the best man' uscript pamphlet of a limited size in favor of annexation. It i also proposed that the pam phlet be printed at tha expense of the asso oialion, and the copies spread over the coun try at the nominal price of one penny. After its publication a challenge is to be given for a written refutation of Us arguments and it is likewise proposed by this association to employ lecturers to advacates its tiew and form branch associations.

A letter from Genoa of the 16th ultv, an nounces the departure on that day of Gari baldi, in the Tripoli steamer for Sardinia, and (hence to Tunis. Calithumpian Serenaders. A case was lately tried at Orwigsburg, Pa., in which one John Lewis was indicted for riot and assault and battery on Thomas R. Johnson. It ap peared that on the night Mr. Johnson's mar riage the defendant and others annoyed the party by assembling in front of the house, and performing a serenade with horns, bells, kettles, kc. kc. Although S5 were offered to them lo go, they refused, and continued their annoyance until 2 o'clock in the morning, in sulted the ladies, and striking Mr. Johnson. The defendant was fined anil imprisoned. Important Decision in New Jersey. The U. S. Circuit Court at Trenton has jnsj decided an important suit in that state,' where a plaintiff claimed title to land under the pro prietors of East New Jersey, which was de rived from the grant of King Charles 11 to his brother, the Duke of York, made March 12, 1654. This was a very comprehensive grunt, beginning at St. Croix and extending to the east side of Delaware Bay, which grant in vested the Duke of York wilh the property and the power of government. The Court decided that : "After the Revolution, and the establish ment of a new Government, all royal rights and privileges became vested in the People, represented by tha sovereignty of New Jer sey, and the Proprietary Rights became null and void." A Bold Push for Liberty. A negro con fined in the Michigan Slate prison, convicted of a brutal murder in Detroit, made a leap ihe other day, from th nj of the prison wall, and got off over the river j notwith standing he was fired at by the guard, two balls entering his body, and one going en tirely through. He was finally recaptured, however, after a hard fight. Political Signs. The Democratic, gov ernor recently elected in Maine, publicly a vowed himself, before the election, "opposed to slavery in all its bearings, moral, social and political, and especially opposed to its extension ;" and that he would adopt all con stitutional and equitable means to prevent its extension, and that he believed that "Con gress has entire constitional jurisdiction over ihe subject in the territories." To this pro fession he owed his success. Albany Atlas, The Democrats of Michigan have nomi nated for Governor, John S. Barry, of St. Joseph; for Lieut. Governor, Wm. M. Fen ton, of Genesee. The American Railroad The grading of this road, from Gorgona to Panama, has been contracted for by Mr. Totten, of Phila delphia. The cost will be about $400,000. Hon. John C. Calhoun The Columbia, 8. C. Telegraph, referring to the rumor that Mr. Calhoun contemplated resigning his seat in the Senate at an early day, says, that no such intention has been either expressed or entertained by Mr. Calhoun, and ihat the rumor is entirely without foundation. Curb OfHeadaches.-A woik has recent ly been published in Paris, by an eminent physician, in which he describes a new re medy for headaches. He uses a mixture of ice and salt, in the proportion of 1 to i, as a cold mixture, and this he applies, by means of a Utile purse of silk gauze, wilh s rim of gutta-percha, to limited spots on the forehead or other pans of the scalp where rheumatio headacheis felt. It gives instantaneous re lief. The skin is subjected to the process from half a miauie lo one and' a half minutes, and is rendered bard and white. It is good in eryaiplas and diseases of the skin.
