[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.

The rats are said to be leaving Texas

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

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

storm, and overburdened by the accu
mulation of 15 tons of snow, sunk in

'piME AND ECONOMY ARE
MONEY—PACKER’S LABOR-SAV
ING SOAP and UNIVERSAL CHEMI
CAL STAIN EXTRACTOR.
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

WINN’S FOUNTAIN HEAD.—
TT STEAM CANDY MANUFACTORY.
—Fancy Confectionary, Pie and Refresh
ment Saloon, Long Wharf, between San
some and Battery streets, San Francisco.
I will just say to my patrons, for their
special benefit, some of whom have been
frequently decoyed by the near imitations
of tables, chairs, &c , (as well as my sys
tem of tickets,) by a house in close proxi
mity to the Fountain Head, (and been as
often taken in,) that with a little more at
tention they can avoid the like occurrence
for the future, by just noticing the numbers
on the candy windows, 47, 49, and 78 and
80, on the doors.
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.

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
