Merced Riveu.-—The miners arc rapidly pushing along their limning operations to com pletion. Some of tin* Humes will he over half a mile in length, and it is expected that more gold will he taken out of the bed of the river this season than in any previous year. The Chinese are assembling on the banks of the river in great numbers, and wc have no doubt that many a claim abandoned in despair on previous occasions by the impatient American I miner, will be made to pay handsome wages by these celestial gold hunters. Laid Low —When the workmen were blast ing a bard slate ledge in a well now being dug for Mr. Pitt in this town, they struck a small streak of clay in the crevices of the rock, upon the washing of which they obtained some four or five dollars worth of the precious metal.— The crevice from which it was taken is some twenty-five feet in the solid bed rock, and how it got there is the mystery—because the gold is smooth as though worn so bv the action of water. Wo have always thought that the os cillating motion of the earth has much to do with polishing smooth the native gold, and arc more strengthened in our opinion hy this dis covery than ever. One of the pieces weighed two dollars and twenty-five cents. San Joaquin River. —A correspondent un der date of August Ist, writes: “The River is going down very steady ; snow is scarce in the mountain*, and blankets are not in such good demand as heretofore. Miners are flock ing in hero every day, ami all anticipate a good yield.” Tun Tree Akch on the Yosemite Trail.— Among the group of large trees stands one on the trunk of which the fro has preyed more or less every spring until it has been burned through, leaving a space sufficiently largo to enable three gentlemen on horse-hack to rule ahreast through it. The riders through ' this aiboreous arch could touch its top with I their fingers by raising themselves in their stirrups, and throwing their arms upwards to their utmost extent. While passing through this blackened aperture Mrs. H. came very near meeting with a fatal accident On one side of the tree the lire has left quite a ridge of the trunk over which the horses have to raise themselves when passing out. Mrs. 15. was riding a spirited animal, and when he came to the obstruction he leaped clear over it, Mrs.’s B.’s bonnet just grazing the top of the arch. The Pioneer Circus—On last Friday night this famous Circus pave an exhibition of their wonderful performances in this town. The, benches were filled with delighted spectators. The daring acts of horsemanship we have never seen excelled in any Circus. A liralitlflil On Inst Sunday evening on our way to Horn itos from the town of Mariposa, we witnessed the burning of the herbage on the mountain side near the summit of the ridge over which Mr. Burkhalter’s new toll road passes. A gentle sephyr sported evenly down the mountain slope i against the flame which shone like walls of (Ire stretched along the steep and grassy des cent. The moon was also blazing with a flood of light, and as the fading twilight increased the lustre of her glare, so also did the fire dis close its progress among the rugged and wind ing ravines. It was truly a beautiful and pleasing sight to behold. All was so remark ably quiet, soft and captivating. The flames were burning with great regularity along the mountain slope, struggling and, toiling along over opposing steeps like the march of an as cending army clothed in fire. Whenever the flames would reach a ravifte where the grass was thick and matted, they would run far ahead of the regular line like sentries m ad vance of the main body. In many places along the road bushes and timber are placed on the hill side and dirt thrown over it to pro tect the road from washing during the winter months, and it was feared that this protection j of the road would bo destroyed, but we arc ■ glad to learn that no serious damage has been sustained A Trip to SJnnlulani C'ofilily. On Friday evening. aliout 11 o’clock. wo >t« d our self in one of A. N. Fisher fc Co.’s ataper driven by Mr. Georpe Smith, the well known and rtrdonv 'i -tuip driver on the route between Hornitos and Kiiipht ■* Ferry, via I-apranpe. In a few hours we safely land ed at the latter place at the Lagmnpe Hotel. The gentlemanly proprietor—who 1•« also agent for thin stage company—conducted us to a very comfortable bed, and next morning after breakfast we took a re view, by daylight, of the town. Too much cannot ho said in pm he of the present proprietors of the La grange Hotel, Messrs. Woodhead & Richardson. Since they have leased this Hotel tney have spared no ex pense or pains in renovating all ihe rooms, adding new furniture, bedding, Ac., thus contributing greatly to the comfort of all who may favor them with a call. Mr. and Mrs. Woodhouse superintend, personally, the eating and sleeping department of the house, and it is sufficient only to know that they have charge of the same to warrant satisfaction to their numerous pa trons. Visitors to the Yosemitc Falls will be pleased to take this route, via Lagrange t) Mariposa, ns they will pass through the t »wn* of Knight's Ferry, La grangc, Merced Falls and Hornitos, which greatly varies the monotony of traveling# Attached to this Hotel is a splendid Ball-room ex tending some sixty feet back, Which has been dedica ted to the Drama, on examination of tire scenic painting width ornamented the room, we were led to believe that our old artist friend, 3. H. Richardson, of the Camp Seco Theatre In the " Days of Anld Lang Syne* had a hand in it—which proved true. Mr. R. intends adding several new pieces of scenery suitable to represent different plays, during the season of the traveling companies. We noticed the three extensive hydraulic claims now being woiki 1 immediately in the rear of the main Street, in the south end of to vn. They are owned by Mr. Tliendoie Ewing; Thrnsby A Co.; and WcGlen A Co. Two of the companies are raising water from the fltanbl ins Water C mipany’s d.t li by means of steam power—the other ohe by a w heel from the river. The three claims give employment to about sixteen persons, and are paying good wages# Doubtless with in a few yean the whole of the present site of the town will l»e washed away by the hydraulic process, as the whole body of the hill h known to contain rich deposits of gold. Messrs# Dye A Simmons who <wn ihe lumber mill, intend raising water from the river to the top of the hill above the town, which will supply some of the very rich mining claims in this locality— Tiiere are several tunnels located on the banks of the river which are paying well. The Stanislaus Water Company have extended the ir I itch and flume about two miles further down the river, thereby supplying numerous rich mining claims and gardens with water. This company have also extended a flume across the river by means of a wire cable, and furnish considera ble water to the various claims on that side. There are also several large wheels in operation, which raise water for mining purposes. Whilst Lagrange we nu t with onr old and esteem ed friend.
