Avast amount of nauseating and noxious compounds having been thrust into the market under the name of “ Hitters.” it becomes the duty of the Proprietors and Agents for the sale of the cclebratt d Gregory s Vegetable Brandy Bitters, j to expose the fact, and absolve tiienseves from 1 giving tacit assent to any merit claimed to lie i possessed by those injurious compounds. The special qualities of GREGORY’S HITTERS are to renovate and invigorate the body, promoting activity in the digestive organs, and consequent ly eradicating dyspepsia and other similar com plaints incident to a sedentary life. To all trav elers, either by land or sea, to miners and others whose occupation calls for severe muscular action those Hitters will be found of invaluable service. The high standing of Da. GREGORY, the discov- I erer, was the first guarrontee of its superior excel lence. its own unequalled merits has since cstab- j lished for it a world-wide celebrity. Dr. Gregory has for years been at the head of the Medical Faculty in London, and twice President of the ! London College of Physicians and Surgeons. These Hitters arc composed nf carefully select ed roots of a fine tonic character, arid the choicest brands of French Hrandies, making them an agreeable and palatable stimulent, as well as a healthful appetiser.

We take pleasure in presenting the Journal to our readers this week, somewhat improved in ap pearance. and trust that it may be more welcome Ilian ever to the family circle ami miner’s cabin. The change has not been made without much expense ; but it affords us pleasure in saying that the liberal support given us by the citizens of Trinity County warranted the change, and the outlay necessary to effect it. Our humble success thus far is proof conclu sive of one fact : that a newspaper conducted in an independent, impartial and dignified manner, is the most appreciated by the citizen whose own interest and that of his family is identified with the morality, growth and prosperity of the Coun ty, and to the miner who seeks to know the truth and character of passing events. Even in a county like our own, where popula tion is sparse, and where all will admit, society is as yet a little rude, there is a high and responsi ble position to be occupied by the newspaper, which, if filled w ith dignity, enterprise and intel ligence, w ill not only command respect and sup port from the people amongst whom it circulates, but an admiration fur beyond the consideration of dollars and cents. This is becoming more ev ident every day, for we see one by one of the lil thy little sewers that are flooding the land, dis appear for the want of admirers and support. Although we have said above that the popula tion of our County is sparse, we can say with cipinl truth that the interests of the County are great and important, and to the true and faithful advocacy of these interests shall we labor to re ciprocate, to the extent of our abilities, for the aid and encouragement extended us by a gener ous and enlightened community. There are but few places in the ftute which can boast of superior advantages or facilities for the honest working-man. Our mineral resources are rich and extensive—-in fact we might say iuex hauslahle, and although our agricultural resour ces are somewhat limited, our commercial Inter ests are large and Important, and in proportion to our population we think more extensive than in any other County in the State. AN ho will say then that it is nut an important and responsible position for a newspaper to occupy, in contribu ting the means and aiding by its intelligence and well directed efforts in bringing about those heal thy reforms and developments which must tend to prove a benefit to all ? Sir.ee our cornu ctiou with the Joi'UN.vt. wo have the satisfaction of know ing that we have labored zealously for ilie inter* sts o! the community, and we have the satisfaction ol knowing also that our efforts and inlluenec have been justly appreciated by the people of Trinity. It is a pleasure even to work for the interest of a people whose grati tude is pure and reciprocal. We are, ami have been of the belief, that a paper even as local as our own, can be made an attractive and interest ing source of information to our citizens, and more particularly to the mining community whose interests are more piominent. than any other. With eueli issue, then, shall w e labor to increase its interest and moral worth. Our circulation is not alone confined to Trinity County, but weekly increasing on the list of At lantic subscribers. We would say to those who desire to subscribe for and send the JoUii.NAl. to their friends or relatives in the f ast, or in any portion of the world, send in the names and ad dress of those to whom you wish the paper for warded, and they will be promptly mailed from our office. Lee A ISkx.m it's National C’ibc i 8.—This en terprising Circus company, who have gained such a wide celebrity, and won the admiration und ap plause of every section of California which they have visited, have, we notice, been making some valuable acquisitions to their already attractive company, which will plac* them at the head of their profession. It serins to havo been the in tention of Messrs. Lee A Jlcnnett to combine the talent and proficiency of America and Europe, and wc should judge from the number of distin guished actors whose services they have secured, that they have quite accomplished their design. We notice the names of Hiram \\. Franklin, the world-renowned general performer ; Mr. f ischer, the great bare-back rider, slack rope and percho performer ; James Ilernnndez,the universally ad mired single act equestrian ; Heo. ltyland, the favorite vaulter and general performer ; Mr. Worrel. the great American clown and acrobat ; together w ith many others, forming the greatest combination of talent ever produced in the arena on the Pacific coast. This company will visit Weavcrvillc caily in the spring. Earthquake. —East Thursday evening, at five five minutes before seven, say s the (loldin hr it, our city was again pretty severely shaken with an earthquake. The shock was of about two seconds durrtion, and was felt in every portion of the city. The motion wus vertical, and there fore more rtadiiy observed than had it been hor izontal or undulating. It was accompanied by a noise resembling the distant discharge of heavy artillery, which gradually died away at the con clusion of the shock. To us it seemed as though the building in which we were sitting raised half an inch and suddenly dropped. It resulted in the usual consternation iimoug the nervous.

THE TRINITY JOURNAL. Saturday Morning, February 14, 1857. A Word with our Readers. The Agitator of 1027. The following stirring lines are from the speech of Henry Clay, delivered in the House of Repre sentatives, Jan. 20, 1S27 : ‘ Wo are accused of doing mischief V>y tho agi tation of this question. Collateral consequences we are not responsible for. It is not this society which has produced the great moral revolution which the age exhibits.— What would they, who thus reproach us, have done .' It they would repress all tendencies to wards liberty and ultimate emancipation, they must do more than put down the benevolent ef forts of this society. They must go back to that era of our liberty and independence, and muz zle the cannon which thunders its annual joyous return. They must revive the slave trade and all the attendant atrocities. They must suppress the workings of British philanthropy, seeking to ameliorate West India slaves. They must blow out the moral lights around us. and extinguish tho greatest torch of all the world, which Amer ica presents to a benighted world, pointing the way to their rights, liberties, and their happiness. And when they have achieved all these purposes, their work will be yet incomplete. They must penetrate the human soul and eradicate the light of reason and the love of liberty. Then, and not till then, when universal darkness and despair prevail, can you perpetuate slavery and repress all sympathies, and all humane and benevolent efl'orts among freemen, in belmlf of the unhappy portion of our race doomed to bondage.’ Tin: Joys ok Maternity. —Grace Greenwood, (Mrs. Lipplncott.) in an address to mothers in the last number of The Litl'e I'lliji lm, thus writes : Since 1 lust addressed you, another year has passed over us—a peaceful and fortunate year to most of you, 1 trust, yet doubtless bringing to the happiest hearts and homes some thing of change and sorrow. To me it has brought the most pro found and sweet, the most solemn and sacred happiness of womanhood- -for within this year 1 have been joined to ‘ the great and noble army of mothers .’ I am now one of you. Oh, if there is a time when woman may h id that she, like .Ma ry of old, is ‘ blessed among women.’ it is when siie folds in her arms her first born child, feels the touch of its tender little hands thrill on her heart-strings—feels upon her cheek the first soft breath of life immortal—sees faintly twinkling in the misty depths of sleepy little eyes a love that shall yet brighten the world for her. This joy unspeakable, this holy triumph of maternity, in Heaven’s abundant compensation for all that is suffered by woman—for all that is denh d In r. With existence renew*d and freshened by the in flowing of this pure rill from the divine fnuiitaiu of life- with my heart made more tender and to ving by the sweet mysterious influence by which babyhood, mighty in helplessness, and without speech most clo<p: lit. cone's tons l feel like consecrating myself anew to the service of such as Jesus took in his arms and blessed — and of you, whom maternity makes kin to her once elected to the highest joy and deepest anguish of mortali ty--her whom lie most loved and most t.-ud rlv remembered in his last hour.

As soon, however, as one entered the chamber, our i allant Frenchman relinquished his hold of the lady’s arm. ■ Ah, all ! Madame,’ hissed he between his teeth, ‘ you shall cut your treat, eh ?

Heuton delivered a lecture in Hostori, before the Apprentices' Library Association. The New York Tribune says : He opened it by giving, it. a kindly, character istic style, nunc very good advice to young men in general and apprentices in particular. They saw before them, lie remark, d, a person who had attained an age past the limit which the Psalm ist assigns to the line of life, and now upon those years which the same l’salmist associates with sorrows and weakness. Thus far lie was exempt from those infirmities.

The render* of Kune's narrative of his recent Arctic expedition could liurdly have failed to rend the following passage with almost breath less int' rest, so completely were the lives ut Kune mid his men dependant upon the sequel. They were upon a short allowance of food, and were almost famishing, with still a long journey be fore them : ‘ Things grew worse and worse with us ; the old difficulty of breathing came hack again, and our feet swelled to such an extent that wo were oblig ed to out open our canvas boots. Hut the srrnp tom which gave me most uneasiness was our inn biliiv to sleep. A form of low fever which hung bv us when at work had been kept down by the thoroughness of our daily rest ; all my hopes of escape w ere in the refreshing Influences of the halt. It must he remembered that we wore now in the open hay, in the full line of the great ice-drift of the Atlantic, and in bouts so frail and nnseuwor thv as to require constant bulling to keep them aflout. It was at this crisis of our fortunes that we saw a large seal floating—as is the custom of those animals—on a small patch of Ice. and seemingly asleep, it was an kjshV (seal,) and bo large that'; I at first mistook it for a iihiIius.

I'elersnn, with the large IIngllsh rifle, was sta tinned in the bow, and stockings were drawn over the oars as mufllers. As we neared the animal, our excitement became so Intense that our men could hardly keep stroke. I had a set of signals for such occasions, which spared us the noise of Hie voice ; and when about three hundred yards nit', the oars were taken in, and we moved on in deep silence w ith a single skull astern. He was not asleep, for lie reared his head when we were almost w itliin rifle shot ; and to this day 1 cun remember the hard, care-worn, almost des pairing expression of the men's thin faces an they saw him move ; their lives depended on his cap tu re, I depressed my hand nervously, as a signal for Peterson to fire.

The seal rose on his fore-flippers, gaz d at us a moment with frightened curiosity, and colled himself for a plunge. At that instant, simultaneously with the crack of cur rifle, he relaxed his long length on the ice, and ut the V< ry brink ot the Water, his head li 11 helpless to one side. I would have ordered another shot, hut no di« cipliue could have contruh d the men. With a wild yell, each vociferating according to Ills own impulse, they iirg> d the boat upon the floes. A crowd of hands seized the seal and Imre li in up to safer ice. The ut 'ii cun d half crazy ; 1 had not realized how much we were reduced by abso lute famine. They ran over the floe, crying and laughing and brandishing their knives. It was not live minutes before every man was sucking his bloody lingers, or mouthing lung strips ul law blubber. Not an ounce of thi, seal was lost. The intes tines found their way into the soup kettles with out any observance of the preliminary home pro cesses. The cartilaginous parts of the fore II ip per- were cut off in the melee, and passed round to be chewed upon ; and even tin- liver, warm and raw as i! was, bade fair to lie eaten before il hud seen the pot.
