Cometh a Blessing: Down.
iT ma?.y Frances tTi.tR. Not to the man of dollars, Not to the man of deeds, Not to the man of cunning, Not to the man of creeds; Not to the one whose passion Is for a world’s renown, Not in a form of fashion, Cometh a blessing down. Not unto land’s expansion, Not to the miser’s chest, Not to the princely mansion, Not to the blazoned crest, Not to the sordid worldling, Not to the knavish clown, Not to the haughty tyrant, Cometh a blessing down. Not to the folly-blinded, Not to the steeped in shame, Not to the carnal-minded, Not to the unholy fame ; Not to the neglect of duty, Not in the monarch’s crown, Not at the smile of beauty, Cometh a blessing down. But to the one whose spirit Yearns for the great and good, Unto the one whose store-house Yieldeth to the hungry food; Unto the one who labors, Fearless of foe or frown; Unto the kindly-hearted, Cometh a blessing down. How Jim Willis got to New Orleans. It has not been many years since the late James Willis, of Baltimore, one of the greatest coramedians of his time, flour ished in the western cities. In fact, we believe towards the close of his career, he made St. Louis his home. The New York Sunday Courier tells the following good story in which Willis acts the hero: About the time the Texas excitement ran so high in the United States, Jim Willis was in Pittsburgh, in that situation so common to play actors, “flat broke,” standing on the wharf, with his solemn visage expanded, planning how he could get down the river without money, when he heard the drum and file. He saw a half-uniform soldier about embarking for New Orleans, bearing a Texan banner.— A thought struck him. Next day he sent his trunk on board the first boat to start, and just as the Captain tapped the bell for the last time, Willis stepped on board, dragged his trunk into an unoccupied state-room, and took from his theatrical wardrobe a soldier’s coat, with buff breast and three rows of buttons, a chapeau with an immense plume, a red sash, and a pair of false whiskers. By the time that the boat had fairly got under way Jim was fully equipped, with his stage sword hang ing gracefully by his side. Drawing on his gloves he hesitated a moment, but re lying on his peculiar power, he opened the door into the cabin, which was filled with passengers. In a moment all eyes were turned towards him, but be walked to the bar and took a glass of brandy and water. In the mean time all was confusion and bustle to find out who the officer was. A general rush was made for the register, but he had not yet put his name down; the captain was consulted, but he knew nothing. At length, however, feeling a little curiosity himself, he walked up to him, bowed politely to him, and said, “Sir.” “Sir to you,” said Jim, touching his chapeau. “ Will you do me the favor to register your name, so that I can provide a state room for you ?” “ Oh, with pleasure,” said Jim, and walking up to the register he flourished in round text, “C. P. Edwards, Major Texas Army.” The crowd pressed around the table—they read the name —universal enthusiasm prevailed, and three tremen dous cheers were given for “Texas and liberty I” Jim took off his chapeau, ac knowledged the compliment with a grace ful bow and a few patriotic remarks. It is almost needless to say that from that moment the soi distant major was a lion. Every one sought his acquaintance; the ladies opened the cabin doors to get a peep at him; and at night was made drunk as Bacchus on champagne. Next day he was promenading the hurricane deck, linked arm-in-arm with the Captain and a warm-hearted southerner. “Major,” said the southerner, “I know you have been on a mission to collect arms, ammunition and recruits, but on this sub ject you may of course be mum; in con sequence of the treaty between the United States and Mexico. For my part I could see all the rascals hung like a dog on the trees.” “ Whatever my business may have been, I find I have exhausted my means in the cause; in fact, I fear I shall not be able to pay my passage until I get to New Or leans.” “Dont’t mention it,” said the Captain. “ I could not think for a moment of taking anything from you.” “I have it,” exclaimed the Southerner, “ follow me.” The trio adjourned to the clerk’s office, where a stirring appeal for aid to Texas was written. The Southern gentleman carried it among the passengers and col lected $l5O which was handed over to Willis. At night a supper was given, at which speeches were made and toasts were drank. The cabin was decorated with the star spangled banner, entwined with the flag of the lone star, made by the ladies out of white and red “oh no never mention-’ems” for the occasion. At 12 o’clock they commenced singing songs, and at length the Major was called upon to favor the company with one. He complied by sing ing his favorite song, Billow Barlow. “Bravo!” said one. “Excellent!” said another. “ I could do it better,” said Jim, who was fast verging into the fourth stage of intoxication, “if I had my proper togs on.” After giving three faint huzzas for Texas, the party broke up. Next morning the clerk went into WfUis' state room to call him to breakfaet. when be found that the Major bad turned in all standing, with boots, chapeau and sword on; his feet snugly laid on the pillow. He was a Texas “Major,” and of course no fault was found. Getting 3lartued. — During the last summer, a little incident transpired in one of the mining towns which afforded some fun, and furnished food for a considerable gossip thereafter. It occurred in the church on one of those quiet afternoons when all the world seems ready to drop asleep; when the flics buzz lazily on the window-panes, and the dog lies on the door-stone. The afternoon service had ended, and the congregation were arranging them selves for the benediction, when, to the great astonishment and the manifest in terest of the worshippers, the good parson descended from the pulpit to the desk be low, and said in a calm clear voice: “ Those wishing to be united in the holy bauds of matrimony now come for ward.” Stiil no one stirred. The silence be came almost audible, and a painful sense of the awkwardness of the position was gradually spreading-among those present, when a }'oung gentleman who had occu pied a vacant seat in the broad aisle du ring the service, slowly arose, and delib erately walked to the foot of the altar.— He was good looking and well dressed, but no one present seemed to know him, and no female accompanied his travels. When he arrived within a respectable distance of the clergyman, he paused, and with a rev erent bow, stepped to one side of the aisle, but neither said anything nor seemed at all disconcerted at the idea of being mar ried alone. The clergyman looked anx iously around for the bride, who he sup posed was yet to arrive and at length re marked to the young gentleman in an un der tone : ‘ The lady, sir, is dilatory.’ ‘ Very, sir.’ ‘ Had we better nor defer the cere mony V I think not, do you suppose she will be here soon V ‘ Me, sir!' said the astonished shepherd, ‘ how could I know of your lady’s move ments ? That is a 1 matter belonging to yourself.' A very few moments more were suffered to elapse in this unpleasant state of expec tancy, when the clergyman renewed his interrogations: ‘ Did the lady promise to attend at the present hour sir? ‘ What lady ?’ “Why, the lady that you are waiting here for.” ‘ I did not hear her say anything about it,’ was the satisfactory response. ‘ Then, sir, may I ask you why you are here, and for what purpose you trifle in the sanctuary of the Most High ?’ said the somewhat enraged clerical. ‘ I came, sir, simply because you invi ted all those wishing to be united in the holy bonds of matrimony to step forward, and I liappened to entertain such a wish 1 I am very sorry to have misunderstood you, sir. 1 wish you a very good day. The benediction was uttered with a solemnity of tone very little in accordance with the twitching of the facial nerves : and when, alter the church was closed, the story got wind among the congrega tion, more than one girl regretted that her wishes had not been as boldly expressed as was the young gentleman’s, who had really wished to be “ united in the holy bonds of matrimony.” Hearts. —Let us never, my editor, ac cuse any human being of wanting a heart. Most people have hearts, in their way. — The wretched conventional habits and re quirements of our time make us suspicious of each other. Mere style and courtesy pass so current for feeling, that we become apt to question the existence of feeling.— There are so many counterfeits, that we grow into the belief that there is nothing real and genuine. Fashiun has put truth to the blush, and diplomacy is becoming to be regarded as a higher quality than sincerity. Tn'Jleton Papers. Courage is more than cash, and an up head more than a host of “influential friends.” There are more elements of suc cess in the single beat of a stout heart, than in all that this or the other one can say or do.

Blair’s mntenance transfer red to his andirons, as the resemblance would frighten his children so as to pre vent all danger of their going too near the tire-place. A young gentleman out west com mitted suicide in a novel manner. He ate a pint of dried apples, and then drank water until he bursted. The rash act was caused by his father forbidding him to grease his moustache with the butter knife. “Julius, was you ever in busi ness?'' “In course I was.” “What bus iness.” “A suearplanter.” “When was dat, my colored friend?” “Derday I bu ried dat old sweetheart of mine.” A quantity of treasure valued at SI 50,- 000 was buried by the Russians in Church of Sevastopol, and they have just dug it up in safety, although the French slept in the edifice for some considerable time.

If you grant a favor, forget it; if you re ceive one. remember. The Rhinoceros. BY DOW, JR. Ladies and gentlemen! Of ail ‘homed cattle' the rhinoceros stands at the head; that is, if he can properly be termed a cat tle. Some call him the rhinossen/,: oss, but a Professor Winchell has very truly obser ved, helookslikearhinossenc<wc. Where ever we may class him however, we caunot withhold from him the credit of being a rouser in the second living degree—the first being the elephant. He is usually found not many rods from twelve feet long, from the tip of the nose to the spot where the tail is grafted; from six to seven feet high; and the circumference of his body is an equal match for its length —which makes the matter as broad as it is long.— He has about as much bulk as the elephant; but if it does not appear so to the careless eye, it is because he does not stand so high in the world, in consequence of the brevity of his legs—which are most remarkably laconic. All the words, ladies and gentlemen, of which I am brigadier general, can convey but a rheumatic idea of this animal's shape; therefore, I shall not hazard a description. I shall only say that he looks as though he might have been made of mud ; and, after having been dried in thesun, Nature rolled out a sort of pie crust of the same, and slapped it upon his back for deviltry. His snout is furnished with a horn, (as your snouts are occasionally,) very stiff, and sometimes three and a half feet long; but for this, that part would come as near to that of a hog’s as you could throw a stone. The nest time you visit a managerie, where the creature has the honor of ap pearing before you, you will not fail to no tice the magnitude and the pliability of his upper lip, and remember the Ethio pian’s no more. With it he collects all his fodder, puts it in his mouth, and sends on its dark journey, with all thegraeeand ease of an accomplished gentleman in a drawing room. Miraculous are miracles of nature ! His ears are pointed—much more so than a common pulpit discourse; and his eyes, though small, are more pier cing than the fierce blasts of winter. The skin is destitute of hair, fur, wool, feathers, down or bristles; in other words it is cov ered all over with nothing, being shame fully naked, rough, bubbly, and lying up on the body in folds, after a very peculiar fashion—as much unlike sheep folds as possible. The two folds most remarkable are the one above the shoulder and the other over the rump; that of the latter is worthy of particular notice. His hideis so hard and thick as to turn the edge of ridicule, and resist a canon ball, if fired from anything like an unreasonable distance. The belly hangs disreputably low; the legs are short as human life, strongasold cheese, and thick as hasty pudding; and the hoofs are divi ded into three parts, each separate, and yet joined in one, like the mysterious trinity. Such, ladies and gentlemen, is a rough outline of an animal that appears chiefly formidable from that awful horn projecting from his snout; for terrible it is when he exalts it in anger. With it he is capable of giving the tiger so high a toss that one might sit and de liberate for half an hour after the flip-up, as to whether it would come head or tail on its regaining terra firma. Not being able to give the elephant a lift so easily, he drives his horn into the chest (not into the trunk) of this monstrous creature, and life soon ceases to vitalate in his stupendous system. Indeed, there is no force which this terrible animal lias reason to appre hend, except it be a steam locomotive un der extra excitement, and I doubt if be could apprehend that. Defended, as lie is, on every side, by a hide impregnable to the claws of the lion, and armed before with a weapon capable of giving satisfac tion to the most unsatisfied, he partakes of his fodder in the spirit of 70, and no fear interrupts the healthy process of digestion. But his inner nature being lined with a smooth disposition, he never chooses the offensive, but acts upon the defensive— never meddles with others, but stands up on his modest rights; and avo be to that man, or any other beast, who shall under take to dispute them! Accused of Sabbath Breaking.— The London Punch, is rather sarcastic in its treatment of those Avho labor so perse veringly to secure a proper observance of the Sabbath, He appears to think that the popular idea on this subject predispo ses that Nature is an ungodly institution, and that the powers Avhich govern her op erations have no respect for “the Lord’s day.” Hear him : “But it is equally clear that the flowers of the field, the woods, and groves, if they are to be seen on Sunday, must also ope rate to the allurement of mankind from their homes on the day of rest. The so ciety for the Promotion of the Due Ob servance of the Lord’s Day, therefore pro poses to purchase an unlimited quantity of drugget, to lay down on Sundays over the carpet of the meadows, the hills and dales; and as much black crape as may be need ful to be made into veils for the trees and other beauties of nature. They say that if the horse chosnut trees in Bushy Park were thus veiled on Sunday, it would pre vent much of the desecration of that day, which they now cause by being out in bloom. According to the Albany Knickerbocker, many pious people use the day to promote melancholly, while the bigots generally im prove the occasion for a simultaneous at tack on the powers of digestion ! The Importance of one Vote. —An ex change says that one vote in the United State Senate annexed Texas to the United States. Mr. Hannegan, of Indiana, cast that vote.

Farmers will bear in mind that these Mills are situated at the foot of the mountains, in the mining region, and the prices we pay for Grain will always remunerate them for freight ing their produce to us. \Tc would call paeticclae attention to the immense riF.E-PEOOF BRICE STORE-HOUSE, connected with these Mills, capable of holding TWO THOUSAND TONS of Wheat, where Farmers wishing to remove their grain past all bad roads in winter, can store Free of Charge. To those Farmers who wish to dispose of their produce after manufacturing, we would state that we will furuish the storage FREE for their Flour, Bran, &c., in fire-proof houses in SONORA . COLUMBIA , JAMESTOWN, CHINESE CAMP , MURPHY'3 or SAN ANDREAS, at either point they may prefer, whore they can safely leave their Goods, and await bad roads and high prices for Flour, and where, at any time they choose, they can make sales, for CASH, and not be compelled to submit to a PedLar's Fate , of selling at any prices that may be offered to the wagoner. Farmers selling grain to us can, if they de sire, always have loads of freight furnished them to the mountains, at the going rates. Customers can have their produce delivered to any point they may designate, from Mokel umne Hill to Kern River, as we have a large train of Pack Mules for this purpose. Thus Farmers can store their grain in their store house, proceed to the mountains and con tract to deliver their Flour at any point in the Southern Mines, and obtain the highest prices. We wash smutty wheat by machinery, at a trifling expense, and manufacture it into the best of Flour. SEED WHEAT thoroughly cleansed free of charge; barley, oats and chess taken out. Wheat and barley mixed, will be taken and separated perfectly. The highest prices is cash will always be paid for Wheat. Lumber will be given in exchange for grain at Stockton prices. No wheat containing small stones or gravel, or clods of earth, will bo received for grinding into Flour under any circumstances. No lot of wheat of any description will be received for flouring, unless it can be manu factured into saperjine Flour. Customers bringing grain to the Mills will be kept, over night without charge. No smoking or camp tires will be allowed about the premises. No business of any nature will be attended to on Sunday. Under no pretext whatever, will children be allowed about the Mills, unless accompanied by their parents. THE REPUTATION of the Stanislaus Mills is established beyond doubt, as being the best in the country; the proof of which may be found in the fact that it sells in the mining towns one dollar per barrel higher than any other brand ever offered in the market.

Tiie undersigned, desirous of acquainting those who may be unfortunate enough to be similarly afflicted where a permanent relief of their suf ferings may be obtained, feels it his duty to thus publicly express his sincere gratitude to ! Dr. L. J. Czapkay for the permanent recovery of his health. Borne down by the distressing ; symptoms incident to the vicious practices of uncontrollable passion in youth, depressed in body and mind, unable to perform even the most trilling duty imposed upon the daily avo cations of life, 1 sought the advice of many phy sicians, who first regarded my disease of trilling importance, but, alas! alter a few weeks, and in several instances months, of their treatment, 1 found, to my unutterable horror, that instead of relief the symptoms became more alarming in their torture, and being finally told by one that the disease, being principally confined to the brain, medicines would be of little conse quence, I despaired of ever regaining ray health, strength and energy; and as a last resort, and with but a faint hope, called upon Dr. JL. J. Czapkay, who, after examining my case, pre scribed some medicine which almost instantly relieved me of the dull pain and dizziness in my head. Encouraged by this result, I resolved to place myself immediately under his care, and, by a strict obedience to his directions and advice, my head became clear, my ideas col lected, the constant pain in my back and groins, the weakness of my limbs, the nervous reaction of my whole system on the slightest alarm or excitement, the misanthropy and evil forebod ings. the self-distrust and want of confidence in others, the incapability to study and want of resolution, the frightful, exciting, and at limes pleasurable dreams at night, followed by invol untary discharges have all disappeared, and. in fact, in two months after having consulted the Doctor, I felt as if inspired by a new life— that life which, but a short time ago. i contem plated to end by my own hand. ; With a view to guard the unfortunate from falling into the snares of incompetent quacks, f deem it ray duty to offer this testimony to the merit and skill of Dr. Czapkay, and recommend him to all who may stand in need of medical advice, being assured by my own experience that, once under his care, a radical and perma nent cure will be effected.

There is no malady of deeper importance, either in a medical or moral point of view, to which the human family is more liable, than that arising from impure connections. As a medical man, it is the duty of every physician to look at disease as it affects health and life, and his sole object should he to miti gate. as far as lies in his power, the bodily suf fering. Human nature at best is hat frail; all arc liable to misfortune. Of all the ills that affect man, none are more terrible than those of a private nature. Dread— ful as it is in the person who contracts it, — frightful as arc its ravages upon his constitu tion. ending frequently in destruction and a loathsome grave, it becomes of still greater im portance when it is transmitted to innocent off spring.

Young : —Feeling grateful to you for your kindness and skill in removing from my body the effects of a most loathsome disease, under which 1 had been laboring for the past five years. 1 deem it my duty—not only to you as a physician, but for the benefit of all persons who may be laboring under similar afflictions —thus publicly to express my gratitude. 1, had very little confidence left when I first call ed on you, having chosen several eminent, phy sicians in this State, ail to no purpose. Their advice and medicines done me no good what ever. I read your advertisements with feelings of mistrust, but they described my feelings so faithfully, that I resolved at once to Consult’ you, which I did, and only regret that I had not done so before, as it would have bc,en a saving to me of hundreds of dollars. I, how ever, will not regret the past, but will look joy fully to the future, knowing that should I or" any of my friends need medical assistance I shall always find one in whom 1 can trust.' I am now on my way to the States. I sha!J re turn in a few months with my family, when I hope I shall find you enjoying health and pros perity, which, you so richly deserve, fh life and health may be spared fpr a long while for the benefit of suffering humanity. With many obligations, I remain, very rc-. spectfully, your obedient servant. L. R. BEMERTON. To J. C. low\g, Jf. D. } corner of - and California streets, San Francisco. o 80V.
