since a gentleman lesiJing in our city,
having a large family dependent on him
for support, became very much reduced
in ciicumsianees from various unfortunate
causes. In a moment of despair he enluted
as a soldier in Col. Stevenson's Regiment
of California Volunteers, leaving an only
son, some eighteen y curs of sge, to provide
sustenance for a mother and sevea children,.
For four long rears did that txy toil

yesterday, when he returned from Califor

door of a store in Nassau street. We can
not pretend to describe the toy, the inex

brought with him from California the nice
sum of seventy -five thousand dollars, the
