The Chico (California) jE nterprise pi June 15th, gives thefofiowing account of this great farm and its crop prospects : The present crop covers an area of 2,800 acres, 2,000 of which is sown in wheat and the residue in barley, oats and alfalfa. The kinds of wheat sown are white-bearded Chili, towzel, native of north France, patent office, club and Sonora. Everything is looking in splendid order, whole fields of grain present a perfect uniformity in height, not a weed or mixture of any kina to be seen. The average yield will be at least 30 bushels to the acre, while some bf the best of it will reach 50 bushels to the acre. Seven hundred tops of hay have been harvested and housed this season. Sixty acres of alfalfa were sown last year, from 12 acres of which ou the 12th day of April 4? tons of hay were cut, and from the same piece of ground on the 10th day of June 60 tons were taken off. There are 25 acres of most luxurious growth of timothy. The barley fields look very promising^ and will yield an average of 50 bushels.. There are two vineyards upon the farm, the old and new. The old covers about 25 actes, is the growth of years, and bears fnllt Of the first order. The new covers an srea of 150 seres but lately planted, containing not less than 75,000 vines, all looking thrifty, and a Uia jority of which wifi bear ftult iiext ÿoaif, They embrace nil------------ ' grape.

All amusements of youth to which virtuous wo men are not admitted, rely pn it are deleteri ous in their nature. All men Who avoid fe. male society have dull perceptions, and aft stupid, or have gross tastes,and revolt against What is pure. Your club swaggerers, who are sucking 1 the butts of billiard cue? all nighty call female society insipid.

We fight fqr our selves, We light our pipes, and say we won't go out; Vie prefer burseftes and ôot éasé; and the greatest good that comes to à man froth a woman's society is, that he has to tktakof somebody beside himself—somebody pi whom he is bound to be constantly attentive and fiarrluf«. Marriage has in it less of beauty, but more of safety, than the single life; it liafh not more case, but less danger ; it is more merry and more sad; it is fidler of sorrows and fuller pf joys; it lies under more burdens, but is supported by all the strength of love and charity, and those burdens are delightful. Marriage is the mother of the world, and it preserves kingdoms, and fils ! cities and churches, and Heaven itself. Celibacy, like a fly in the heart of an apple, dwells in per petual *8weetness, but sits alone, and is Con fined, and dies in singularity; but marriage, like the useful bee, huikis a house and gathers sweetness from every flower, and labors and unites tato societies imd.repfldiç&.aud sends out colonîeâ, and féefls the world with defi es' ' an interest of mankind, and is that state ot goo< io which Gotl has designed the 1 present con. stitution of the world.
