Mohelumne Hill, 91ar. 19,1853.
[For the Chronicle.] A CALIFORNIA SCENE All among the pines’ green tresses, Bending in the western blast, Where the raven and the vulture Croaking, screaming, hurry past; Where the storm in winter rages As the rains come pouring down. And the hot sun dimly enters When the summer months come on. Let me rest awhile and ponder. Lounging by my faithful gun. For my limbs are weary climbing. O’er the mountains in the sun. There is grandeur all around me. On the earth and in the sky. In the white peaks far above me. In the river rolling by. There is music stealing gently All my wearied senses o’er. In the cooing dove’s low murmur And the pines that round me soar. Grand and solemn peans chanted On their windy organs wild, Like the broken hymns of slumber. In our dreaming when a child. List! the west wind rising gently. Wakes the zephyrs from their sleep, And the river tumbles headlong Down its canons dark and deep! List the clash of ringing shovels, And the grating of the screen, With the songs of happy miners Echoing up the long ravine ; Hear the whirling of the windlass As its many coils unfold, For another bucket freighted With its wealth of virgin gold. Westward, sternly, like a giant, Shutt’ng out the rolling main. Mount Diablo dimly towers Far across the smoky plain. See the belts of living verdure, Telling where the rivers run, Where the wild grape hangs in clusters. And the lotus woos the sun ; Stretch away their threadlike courses, Far as eye the scene can view, Till the skies and broad savannas Melt and mingle in the view. A. R. Ihe right to the lehuantepec route has been granted by the Mexican go vernment to a mixed company of Mex icans and Americans, at the head of whom is Col. Sloo. The treaty was to be ratified by the American Minister, and the chief engineer waa to leave Mexico on the 15th February, to take formal possession in the name of the grantees. Thus is the prospect fair for the speedy opening of another great line of communication between the two coasts of the American continent. James Smith, of Philadelphia, re cently made a donation of SIO,OOO to Leicester Academy, Worcester county, Mass., on condition that SSOOO should be subscribed by other parties before the first day of January, 1853.

The rats are said to be leaving Texas in disgust. They are reported to have taken up their line of march westward, and to attack indiscriminately every thing of a vegetable nature in their way. The ferryman at the Sequin crossing ot the Guadaloupe river killed over fifteen hundred of them in one day. The Floating Church of our Saviour, for Seamen, at the foot of Pike street, New York, was slightly injured in one of the boats on which it rests, by the storm, and overburdened by the accu mulation of 15 tons of snow, sunk in about 35 feet of water. The venerable Dr. Washburn, who resides at Vernon, Vermont, the Gretna Green for Massachusetts, performed the marriage ceremony for the seven hundred and sixteenth couple. The Salem fishermen are catching a species of fish which they call “Christ mas fish.” They resemble flounders, but are much belter flavored. The census of the population of Prus sia has just been taken. It how ex ceeds 18,000,000. The roads in Illinois have recently been so very bad that a person in going to Springfield from Galena, reports passing ten broken down stage coaches and mail wagons on the road. Mr. Samuel Blood, of Orford, N. H., a few days since caught a grey eagle in a trap, which measured eight leet across the wings, and weighed fourteen pounds. Louis Delery, a native of Africa, who was one hundred and twenty years old, died at New Orleans on the 2d ult,, of old age, a disease not very prevalent in that city.

This new parparation,for its labor-saving and renovating qualities, stands before the public without a rival. Want of space pre vents the enumeration of all its advantages and claims to popular favor. Among the scores, the following are— First —It saves labor; it supercedes the necessity of rubbing and pounding, and pro tects both skin and knuckels, as well as buttons and clothes. Second —It saves time. A washing or dinarily requiring a day may be easily ac complished in two hours. Third —lt is economical in regard to the use of water, not requiring more than one tenth ordinarily employed by common soaps. Fourth —It will instantly remove grease and spots of paint without the use of any water whatever, and thus protect carpets and furniture from suds ana slops. Fifth —Flannels can be washed without being fulled or sticky, with the ease and rapidity of that of cotton or linen. Sixth —It is wonderfully effective in re moving grease and spots from woolens and linens, yet per ectly harmless. It will not injure the most delicate fabric. Seventh —lt whitens clothes and renders the skin both soft and white, and is an in fallible cure for chapped hands Eighth —For champooing, bathing and renovating the skin it is unequalled. AmtA-It supersedes the necessity of using polishing powders, by instantly im parting a most brilliant lustre to jewelry, plate, Brittania, tin, copper and brass. Tenth —It is acknowledged by all who have used this soap, to be the.greatest in vention of the age Its use is absolutely indispensable for the comfort of every fami ly and the convenience of every i.otel, steamboat, restaurant, ship and laundry It is also admirably adapted for the mines. It is retailed at the principal groceries in the city, and sold at wholesale at the manu facturer’s depot, 86 California street, San Francisco.

THE FOUNTAIN HEAD was first established on Jackson street, and destroyed by fire in September, 1850, re opeued in Clay street, the same month, then again consumed by the same devastat ing element on the memorable 4th of May, 1851, and was again opened where it now stands, in July following, and was the first public refreshment saloon ever started up on the coast of the Pacific, without intoxi cating liquors, not even of beer has ever been sold upon the premises, neither *hall be. My friends advised me to intro duce the sale of liquors into my business, as they thought it would add much to my profits; my reply was, I have hands to la bor and produce what sustains life, but not to deal out that which will destroy it. The Fountain Head, as usual, is open from six o’clock in the morning, till 12 o’clock at night; so that gentlemen who are unable to obtain seat* at regular meal hours, may get refreshments between times when the crowd is not so great. d 4 lin L.

The British Periodicals Re-published are as follows, viz: The London Quarterly Review (Conser vative.) The Edinburgh Review, (Whig.) The North British Review (Free Church.) The Westminister Review (Liberal ) Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine (Tory) Although these works are distinguished by the political shades above indicated, yet but a small portion of their contents is de voted to political subjects. It is theirdite rary character which gives them their chief value, and in that they stand confessedly far above all other journals of their class. Blackwood, still unuer the masterly gui dance of Christopher North, maintains its ancient celebrity, and is, at this time, un usually attractive, from the serial works of Bulwer and other literary notables, writ ten for that Magazine, and first appearing in its columns both in Great Britain and in the United States. Such works as “ The Caxtons” and “ My New Novel,” (both by Bulwer,) “ The Green Hand,” “ Katie btewart,” and other serials, of which numerous rival editions are issued by the leading publishers in this country, have to be reprinted by those publishers from the pages of Blackwood, after it has been issued by Messrs. Scott & Co., so that subscribers to the reprint of that Magazine may always rely on having the earliest reading of these fascinating tales For any one of the lour reviews, $3 00 for any two of the four reviews, 5 00 For any three of the four reviews, 700 For all four of the reviews, 8 00 For Blackwood’s Magazine, 3 00 For Blackwood and three reviews, 900 For Blackwood and the four reviews, 10 00 Payments to be made in all cases in ad vance, Money current in the State where issued will be received at par.

Thus : four co pies of Blackwood or of one review will be sent to one address for $9; four copies of the four reviews and Blackwcod for S3C and so on. reduced postage. The following table will show the great reduction which has been made on these periodicals since 1844, and the very trifling rates now charged : _ . Per ann. Prior to 1845, post, on Blackwood, $2 41) “ “ on one Review, 112 From 1845 to 1851, on Blackwood, 100 “ on a Review, 50 In 1851-52, average rate, on Blackw., 75 “ “ on a Review, 38 The present postage on Blackwood is, 24 “ on a Review, 12 (The rates are now uniform for all dis tances within the United States ) At these rates, surely no objection should be made to receiving the works by mail and thus ensuring their speedy, safe, and re gular delivery.
