VOYAGE to CALIFORNIA. Many who have never experienced n sea voyage, know litilo of whnt those who sit out for the distant El Dorado have to undergo. To those not initialed into the change, o who have never be fore been on a sen voyage, it generally makes a decided impression, as those who have ever been nfllctel with sen sickness can testify. It i not generally known what n voyager to this distant clime has to undergo.elsomony who start from their homes with bright anticipa lions, would forego the temptation and be content to remain' with those who are near and dear, and be satisfied with what ever Providence choses tograni. I will mention for instance the ciea of a yoonj: "man, who before leaving home, was in possession of a snug liu! farm, but not being satisfied with his prospects con cluded to dispose of it, and stnrt for the land where he imagined his hopes would be realized. 'But alas! "a change came over the spirit of his dream ," and he sighed to be back ogain,(and with tearful eyes and faltering lips entreated the Pur set of the ship, that he rn'mhl be permit ted to return on her voyage back from San Juan Del Norte, the Purser agreeing lo the arrangement, provided . the home- tick swain did not change his mind in the meantime. It was indeed amusing to these more hardened to such scenes, to see with what warmth he excljimcd, 'oh would I were homo again, and had (he same liitl farm where I lived so hip py, I would give 8 hundred dollars were I back again . The Star of the West, which sailed April J6ih, had 00 passengors, including a large dumber of ladies. . Ihe passon eers.especialjy those who were not troub leo with sea-sickness, seemed to enjoy tije voyage, a we weie favored with fair weather and fir.e breeze. As wo con tinned on our co.uxse .and nee ring the West 'India It-les, we (or the first time began to realize what ' had to undergo, a the .burning rays of a tropical sun poured down on our devoted heads, and with the heat fimittsd from the steam boilers, combined to make us most mis arable!.

PenKiRt Jn many pans of the wotld.thero are lor:e strata of zinc ore; .that- is, zinc in ihe form of an oxid mixed wiib'other mo allic ore. The ore of (he sulphuret of zinc i quite obuu la ,t in various parts of the world, and this isgcnerally combined with arsenic, cadmium, iron, and some other mixtures. Tiie sulphuret of zinc is very fractious, an I expensive to manu facture, especially to bring it to the white oxide for die purposo of paint. In Sus sex Co. N,J. and one or two oilier couu t'cc, we bel eve, largo veins of zinc ore have been known to exist for a great length of time. These zinc ores arc n ixe.l with frankliiiiic(aii ore of iron) on I manganese. It is not a sulphuret, nor is it mixed wiih arsenic or oilier vol atile metals. For many years, we know, the economical reduction of this ore was a problem. Many eminent chemists I. .. - I . , T . I . . I T C'T ?Te.": informal on to work ii profitably. Some years ao an 'association, name I "The New Jersey Zinc Company," was firms I for the purposo of iiiuuufm tu.-ing the zinc ore into paint. But as white lend is the hea l, front, and basis of almost nil ourpniim, it was discovered that un less the zinc ore could be re lured to the white oxide, the company would fail in nnncranl object of iis organization. Why? Because white lead is an unheal thy an I dangerous paint, to use, boih for painters and those who have to dwell in newly pointe I houses, whila white z nc is more cnlurin; than white leal, and is quite healthy to use." The Company, about two yeors ago, erected works on the Passaic river, near lo Newark, N. J., fur tho mnnufaoiiiie of i lie ore into while zinc paint, and vjrious sha les, from a j. ' . ' . . . ' ' I'mlit cinnamon to a cinnbar color. The Company has learned much since ii fnt commenced operations; many dijfi cullies Sve been evercomoan I new in vention, (elicit?. I by that profitable tenchcr, necessity) have at last crown el a'l the efforts of this Ccoinpany w;;!i well deserve 1 success, an I now it is on the high road to become, on of the most prosperous associations in the world. The ore is taken from a distance of about thirty miles to the works, which are built on the passaic for the conve nience of gelling cheap fuel, dec. The oni ii slightly roasted, then stampel in a mill, an.! p!?red in re luting furnaces, submitted to a certain degree of heat, an I then the zinc, being volatile, passes away through pipes into bags of twilled cloth, which retain the while zinc, while the air, heing more subtle, passes through the pores of the cloih. Toper form this operation, exhausting machin ery is placet n the reversed position to that which it is employed in forcing air into furnaces. Tho iron and manganese are retaine I in scoria in the furnaces, but the iron oro is very good an I mckes a far stronger metal than the best Swed ish iron. We have described the pro cess of u nking the white oxide it is a beautiful and ingenious one. Of course it woul.l not answer for some other kin Is of zinc ores. A patent was granted for it io 6. 1.

It is our opinion that a minute Quantity of chlorine gas w. ich passes off with tho air, helps to give the beautiful w.iite col or to the zinc. The sales of the Com pany amount to seven tons of paint per day, an I in a lewvears it will amount to twenty tons. W: believe thit the ore from which the N:w Jersey zinc is wad.-, is th: only kind y;t discovered which ts ireelrom arsenic ir sulphrr. Save Your Earnings.
