THE KNOW-NOTHING. “ Where hare you been ? ” ask'd Mrs. Snob, As Mr. Snob reel'd in the door ; “ A pretty time to seek your home ; I’m sure its twelve o’clock—and more; Those midnight revels will not do. Shame on you, Snob—for acting so ! Where have you been ?—I ask again,” Says he, ‘‘dear wife—l do not know.” “ A pretty plight your hat is in ! And see, your coat is muddied o’er; Your nose is like to-ma-to, And you can scarcely reach the door, How came you so—you naughty man, Say, Mr. Snob—how came you so r ” “ My dearest wife—don’t bother me, Yon Ve heard me say that I do n’t know.” “ I do n’t know how I met the boys. And how I made my maiden speech : I do n’t know what ’t was aH abet. Or whether ’t was a growl or screech I do n't know if ’t was pop we drank, Or whiskey, lager beer or rum, 1 do n’t know how I broke my nose, Or how I navigated hum.” “ I see it all—you cruel man ! ” Cried Mrs. Snob, excited quite, ‘ You’ve joined tha men who nothing * know. And you Vs been meeting them to night. Well, I 11 forgive you, if you ’ll tell Why the}* do meet in secret so ? Say, Mr. Snob—what do you do ? ” “Why, .Mrs. Snob—l do not know!” HURRAH FOR CALIFORNIA! Hurrah for California! the greatest place in all creation, Where gold is dug as ‘taters’ are in this ’ere Yankee nation; WL ere the ‘pvwter’ is so cussed thick ’ti? used In shoeing horses. And where there ain’t no ‘prentices’ cos all of ’em are bosses. Oh! won't it be a glo’ious time when gold runs down like water, And nobody would have to work, and nobody bad oughter.

Thk Tins Turned.—The New York Herald publishes the manifest of the bark W. G. Lewis, from Pan Fran cisco to New York, which shows that she is loaded with goods returned from the California market. llie Herald thereupon remarks: “If any one, three yean ago, bad foretold that in 1854 California would be shipping axes, ham men, steel, rifles, books, tea and drugs, to New York, he would have been look ed upon as a madmen. So it is, how ever. As usual, tfao merchants have overdone the business at 3 saras. 3. -any. LOOK AT THE BRIG'IT SIDE. Away with long faces I Whs 4 is *be use of lootilng us if you haJ a scn‘s° n ticket for a funeral? Can't v«.ou fin.. 1 any better name for tliis world than “ a vale of tears,” and “ a scene of tribula tion? ” If you can’t, it will do you no good to read a letter.which a friend has just furnished us. It it from a wife in Massachusetts to her husband in Cali fornia. She always looks at the bright side. She dosen’t intend going through the world with an air as if “ Muffied drums were beating Funeral marches to the grave.” Here is the letter : “Mr Dear Husband: —As it is some time since you left us for Califor nia, I suppose you would be glad to hear how wc are getting along in your ab sence. lam happy to say that we are enjoying very good health, on the whole -Just at present two of the boys have got the small pox, Amanda Jane has gut the typhus fever, Betsey is down with the measles, Samuel got hooked by a cow the other day, and little Peter has just chopped off seven of his fingers with the hatchet. It’s a mercy that he didn’t cut them all off. With these tri fling exceptions, we are all well and getting along nicely. You needn’t be at all anxious about us. I almost forgot to say that Sarah Ma tilda eloped last week with a tin pedlar. Poor girl! she’s been wailing the last ten years for a chance, and I’m glad, got married at last. She needn't have to take the trouble to elope though, for I’m sure I was glad enough to have her go. She was a great eater, and I find the baked beans don’t go off near so fast now as they did. The way the girl would dip into pork and beans waS a caution to the rest of the family. The cow took it into her head yester day to run away, which was very for tunate, I’m sure, for the barn caught fire last night and was consumed. 1 was in hopes that the house would go too, for it’s very inconvenient, but the wind was the wrong* way, so it didn’t receive much injury. Some boys broke into the orchard the other day, and stripped all the fruit trees. lam very glad of it, for if they hadn’t I prqpume the children would have made themselves sick by eating 1 too much f uit. Hoping that you enjoy yourself in California as well as we do at home, I remain your affectionate wife.” Wht is n:— That the Eastern papers speak so disparagingly of the Golden Stater Wc “guess’’ the edito s may have sent a venture of rum and hoop-poles round the Horn, in charge of Capt. Hezs - Dewlittle, who sold the cargo and refused to remit. It is aggravating for Californians to read the villamoua libles oa their adopted home, which sometimes get currency in respectable newspapers on the Atlantic side. If our State be the rendezvous for the cut-throats andi pick-pockets alone, why do our eastern friends send their tender offspring among ns, where their morals may be mined ? Why not embark them in the tin-ware business, where the lessons of economy learned in childhood are not likely to be forgotten, particularly those relating to a “ swap ? ” If we are to credit the newspapers on the other side, when Belzebub undertakes to collect his jew els, California will pan out “ adfziu.” Sierra Citizen. What we Want, — ‘ Ido not want the walls of separation between different orders of Christians to be destroyed, but only lowered, that wc may shake bands a little easier over them. ” The Familt opposed to Newspa pers.—The inno who don’t take the county paper was in town yesterday, tie brought the whole family in a two horse wagon. lie still belived that Oeneral Taylor was President, and 1 wanted to know if the ‘ Kams-ehatkian’ baJ taken Cuba, and if so. where they had tan it.

After hanging hisTiat on a meat-hook he piously took a seat on a butcher's stall, and listened to an auctioneer, wl>om he took to be a preacher. He left before the meeting was out, and had no great opinion of the ‘sarmiut.’ One girl took a lot of seed onions to the post-office to trade them for a letter. She had the baby which she carried in a sugar trough, stopping to rock it on the side-walk. When it cried, she stuffed its mouth with an old stocking, and sung ‘Barbary Allen.’ r Spunky. —The Junior Editor of the San Diego Herald, thus speaks to a contributor who sent a communication to him for publication: “To “Baronet.”—When in catering to the public taste, it becomes necessary to admit into onr columns such contemp tible, filthy articles as the one you had the effrontery to send in, we w : ll try to earn a respectable livelihood in another manner than publishing a newspaper.— Your article has been destroyed by 12- nition; and we hope if you have no self respect, will refrain from further instill ing ours. Mr. Ames is from home, and therefore in the disposition of that article tee assume nil the responsibility.” The same gentleman Jno. F. Damon, Fsq., was a candidate for Justice of the Peace, and thus addressed his constitu ents: “Mr. Damon, if elected, will endeav our to hold the scales of justice in equa 1 poise, is ready to sympathise with the bachelor, (having just been extricated from their dire dilemma,) prefers issuing marrage certificates to writs of arrest, dcclaiing two bound in wedlock to or dering ove bound in irons, will pubFsh all their marriages, births, and free, and puff or poetise upon each occasion, in proportion to the influence exerted to secure his election, and the quantity of cake accompanying the notice. He is a Democrat, supports the law, is down on vagrants and burglars, does not wish to be in the slightest degree beholden to them, and if be can’t be elected without their votes, had rather be defeated,” A Mr. Thomas Sweetzcr, of Massa chusetts, recently deceased, has left his property to his family, with a condition that at the period of their deaths ten thousand dollars of it shall go to pur chasing of cooking stoves for the poor of Salem, Mass. Each person unable to purchase a stove is to be provided trom said fund, and all the necessary cooking utensils besides. This is good commencement. H hat philanthorpic capitalist, before dropping oft in a re spectable fit of appoplexj, will lea\e a sufficient legacy to provide food for these stoves r Leaving money to buy tracts for the poor is all very well iu its way ; but it should be occasionally borne in mind that the children of pov erty cannot live soley on a spiritual diet. An honest man, God’s noblest work. WHOLE NO. 98 Politicians. — The following ludi crous description of a modern politician, though written some years ago, is not inapp.ieable to our own times. The same vulgar, degrading arts are as nec essary in climbing the political ladder now as in former days, “only more so. * We copy from Irving’s Salmagundi: “To rise in this country, a man must first descend. The aspiring politician may be compared to that in lefatig iMe Virginia insect called the tumbler, which buries itself in filth, and works ignobly in the dirt, until it forms a little ball, which it rolls laboriously along, like Diogenes his tub; some imes head, some times tail foremost, pilfering from every rat and mud hole, and increasing its ball 0 f k*veatucss by the contributions of the kennel. Just s< > the candidate for great fibss - be p.Nnges himself in the mob; labors in dirt an d oblivion, ajid makes unto himself the rudiments of a popular name from the admiratiOU and praise of the vulgar. His name o3C« started, onward he goes, puffing and str££gl-ug, and pushing it before him, collecting new tributes from the dregs and offals of society as he proceeds, until, having gathered together a mighty mass of pop ularity, he mounts it in triumph; is hoist ted into effice, and becomes a great man, and a ruler in the land.” Honet in the cup. —The Boston Post says : —“ There ane thh*teen thou sand manageable girls now in the facto ries at Lowell. It is pleasant to know, in this world of misery, that there »w thirteen thousand men yet to be made hsppy. (?•) Nkvt F. migrant Route. —The Yre ke HeraM says the first overland emi grants by tu'e new trail, to that place, arrived on the 2d inst. The route is represented as being a good one, apd grass plenty, but the Indians between the Uumbolt and Yreka are trouble some. Chinese Whipped. —The Jackson Sentinel of Saturday says : At or near Clinton, on Monday last, some China man, baring built a dam on the creek diverting the water from its channel, and depriving Americans who were working below of the water they had previously used, two of the latter partially tore a way their dam. or raised the gate, and were assaulted by the Chinaman, and one of them severely injured. The cit izens, as soon as they heard of it, assent, bled and arrested seven of the Chinamen concerned in the assault, who weretiied before a jury selected and sentenced to receive forty lashes each, and to be ex pelled from that mining district, which punishment was promptly inflicted. Large Arrival* of Stock. The Butte Re ord of the 9th inst., speaking of the emigration, says : “There has been a very large amount of stock through on this route the pres ent season. During last week, twelve droves of cattle and horses arrived from the plains. One drove contained seven hundred bead of stock in very fair con dition, The balance of the droves con tained fron one to four hundred head each. Dating the prewnt week.wehave not noticed the number of droves pass ing, but think they will not fall far short of the number mentioned above. Had we kept a correct list of the amount of stock arming on this route, it would have spoken volumes in its favor. As it is, ten thousand head is a low estimate of the stock that has passed this point uj> to the present time. Two or three droves a day are still arriving, and we doubt not, many are remaining in th o valleys above, recruiting their stock-
