Many years ago a party of emigrants

and they accordingly set out, leaving
the remainder of the company to follow

were. The first day passed pleasantly
enough, the impatient trawlers making
such progress as caused .Mr. Walsh to
congratulate himself i peatcdly on tho
advantage lie had gained by not wailing
lor hi- tardy companions. His wife did
i, ot, however, reply to iiis rejoicing.
tJie continued to feel anxious and tnuid

ward as to lemain where they were,
and they accordingly did so, but with
far le--s hopeful feelings than at the be
ginning of the journey.
Toward evening of the third day, just
as the despondent Walsh was dreading
another night passed in the harrowing
uncertainty of the previous one, his eld

Her lather turned eagerly to look,
the relieving thought instantly present,

the party ol emigrants that he had sepa.

It was n it so however no wagons
or anything that 1 iked like them were

'1 have heard that such creatures
relbi l attack any but people on loot,
and there are only a lew ot these.
Ifcr husband did not tell her that
from his more exposed -cat ho could .see
the brutes gathering in numbers that
appalled his very heart's core; but he
f.tid in a low warning voice, glancing at
the lightened little ones.
"Won't let a cry e.-capa one of the
children, l'ut jnur i.intd upon the ba
by's month if she cries, arid stifle tho
sounds of your shawl. You might as
well throw tlui.i out ot tho wagon as to
let those bra;e., In ur them cry."
Neither hu.-ban-l or wife hud uttered
the word wn!f. Both seemed to shrink
from it a-i though to speak it would
bring danger nearer.
It was not yet dark, and their blood,
thirsty (acinic.; approached so slowly,
seemingly doubtful of pursuit, that Mr.
Walsh began to hope that ho might bo
able to distaucj them betuio night clos
ed in. He urged his lior-es, therefore
to their utmo-t pr.eed, and they, weary
with the p'ist day's travel, stretched ev
cry sinew in the rive, c..u.-tious, poor
beast w hat they Hew from.
Their driver looked every moment
behind him, and every moment liopo
grew stronger as he beheld the distance
incrca-e between him and the savage
foes, when suddenly, a jolt, of tho wag
on iu its hasty course, Mrs. Walsh,
whose face was turned anxiously toward
tho opening in tne back part of the cov
ered wagon, fell forward on tho babo
, tho w is holding and tho other children
; clinging to her iu their fright, and
somewhat hurt, too, a chorus of screams
burst from each little throat. It was
impossible) to hush them at once though
the frantic mother strove wildly to do so.
For a single instant tho father dared
to hope that tho wolves were to far away
by this time too hear. The next ho saw
thcai sweeping over tho plain like a low
cloud, and their hoarse cries, as they in
cited each other to the fearful banquet,
sent thrills of horror along every nerve
of his frame. The children ceased to
cry, even tho baby hushed its wail, as
those sounds were born toward them on
tho prairy breeze.
Such a race could not last long ; the
n igliteiied horses were but flesh and
blood and drew a heavy load after them.
"I'ut tho child down, and shut that,"
called Walsh to his wife, pointing to
the opening at the back part ot tho wag
on, through which tho yelping pack
could bo plainly seeu.
Mutely tho wife obeyed, not trying
to let down the canvass curtain, which
would ha7e been a slight protection, but
shoving against tho aperture a strong
box, which in a common moment she
could not have stirred.
Almost as she did so, the hot breath
of the foremost smoto her as he leaped
with snapping jaws, at tho crack which
remained abovo the box.
'Can't you shoot, Jane ?" called
Walsh again ; tho gun is loaded, and I
dare not leave the horses. Tire low
never mind aim ; but fire low you can't
well help hitting some of them."
A sharp report answered him. Mrs.
Walsh was prompt.
There was an instant's pause among
the snarling crew, and then they swarm.
ed'on every side, tho fiercer for the taste
of blood they had got from a companion's
Walsh kept them back a few seconds
by lashing them with his long stout
whip. Bnt they soon ceased to shrink
for that and jostling one another, crow,
ded upon tho wretched horses, which
snorting with fear and agony, plunged
aud trampled 'hem under their hoofs,
but sank at last under tho attack.
Walsh, himself, sprang back into the
wagon and barricaded its front only in
time to escape the sharp teeth of one of
the largest of the crew.
A brief interval now elapsed, during
which the horrid pack could be heard
snarling over the poor beasts they had
ovorpowerod. But lG did uut uUo tlicui
long to finish these carcasses.
Walsh had loaded and fired upon them
several limes without interrupting their
banquet, and that done, they turned
their attention again to the wagon,
whose trembling inmates expected every
moment to be torn from their frail re
fuge, and devoured.
But as the husband and father, stern
but agonizing, waiting that onset, and
the mother sank upon her knees among
hnr bubes, there broke upon their ears
the shouts of men, and the sound of
shots fired iu rapid succession, and fol
lowed by the retreating yelps or their
bafll.'d foes. They were saved.
By a most wonderful Providence,
they had retraced their steps till they
had approached tho company they had
so foolishly separated themselves from
before. These had eucaniped for their
first night, and hearing the bowlings of
the wolves, but far from suspecting what
they wcro about, had sallied forth in
sufficient force to disperse them, and
ju'.t in time to rescue their almost vic
tims from their rapacious jaws.
The kind-hearted emigrants among
them made up to Walsh the loss of his
team, and he was content to jog on the
remainder of the way at any pace the
rest chose.

Reports from Dublin state that the
various bands of Fenians appeared to be
well supplied with rations, and they
seem to have risen suddenly in all parts
of Ireland.
They attacked the coast-guard sta.
turn at Killclah, in county Clare, and
took away their arms. .Assaults have
been made upon the stations atCaryfort,

The provisional goverumeut of Ire
land has issued the following proclama
tion to the Irish people :
After seven centuries of outrage and
misery unequalled iu the history of hu
manity; after having seen our laws, our
rights, our liberty troddeu uudcr foot by
the foreigner, our lauds pass from the
Irish farmer to the Irish or foreign usur
per, and the rightful owners of hundreds
of years supplanted by cattle destined
to supply the markets of Kulgand ; and
niter having seen our s'eilled workmen
driven into exile, our meu of thought
and atioti to imprisonment and the
scaffold; having no longer either lauds
to cultivate, laws or acknowledged rights
to invoke ; in a word, have nothing per.
tuining to man save the faculty of suf
fering or the determination to fight, we
ehtwrfully c hoove (his last resort.
All men have a right to liberty and
happiness. Ileheving that there can be
no durable liberty or happiness except
upon the basis of free labor, and that
there can bo no free labor when the
means of labor is no; freo ; considering,
besides, the lirst means of labor is the
soil, and that the Irish soil, instead of
being in tho hand? of the Irish work-
ingmeu, u held by a selfish and despot
ic oligarchy, wo declare it to be our de
termination to repossess ourselves of
that foil by force.
Considering that all men aro born
with equal naturnl rights, and that by
associating themselves to protect one
auotherand share public burdens, jus-
tiC3 demands that tuch association
should rest upon an' equitable basis
such as maintains equality instead of
destroying it we declare that wo aim
at founding n republic upon universal
suffrago, securing to all the intrinsic
value of their labor.
The public expenses will be paid by a
progressive capitation (labor beiug free
lrom any impost;.
Calling upon Uod and mankind to
witness tho justice or out cause and tho
intensity of our sufferings, we declare iu
tho face of tho world, in order to succeed
in reconquering, the inalienablo rights
that all men receive at their birth, wo
take up arms to combat the dominant
oligarchy ; and as its strength dwells in
its credit, based upon its property, we will
employ to destroy it every means that
science, or even despair, shall place
within our reach. W herever the En
glish flag waves over English property
it shall be torn, down, if it be possible,
without fear or truce ; and swear in tho
ferings of those who now cuduro tho
tortures of living tombs for the cause,
by the dear and revered names of those
who have died for the lrecdom of Ire
laud, by our honor aud that of our chil
dren, tuat this war tihall cease only
when the Irish Republic shall bo recog.
nized, or when the last maQof our race
shall be in his grave.
Republicans of the entire wcr'd, our
cause is yours ! Our enemy is your en
emy. Let your hearts bo with us. As
for you, workmen of England, it is not
only your hearts that wo wish, but your
arms. Remember the starvation and
degredation brought to our fire -ides by
oppressed labor. Remember the pat,
look well to tho future, and avenge
yourselves by giving liberty to your
children in the coming struggle for hu
man freedom 1
Herewith is proclaimed the Irish Re

ment of Ireland.
Borax. Tho source of supply of
this mineral is a large aud shallow basin
called, Borax Lake, near Clear Lake, in
Napa county of this State. The owners
of this property, desiring to have an au
thentic statement ot its value and re
sources, which should bo strictly within
the limits of truth, availed themselves
of the distinguished services of Johu
Arthur Philips, Esq , of Loudon, who
consented, in the mid.-t of pressing en.
gagcmetits, during the recent short so
journ in California, to visit Borax Lake,
and report his opinion of it. The fol
lowing synopsis of bis report gives in
substance the result of his investigations.

supply of salt is obtained, is separated

month of April, to two feet at tho end

rebel drummers (who was, 011 account
of his conduct, not a particular" favorite
ot the Colonel of the Sixth Loui-dani
regiment) beat the wrong call. The
Colonel rushed out of his tent,' and
meeting what ho supposed to bo the
rascally drummer, tit otic went to v,r:k t .
to punish him ; and having done so, he
returned to his tent, where he found
his orderly, Fid. a (ielinan juuih, of
quite genteel manners, sitting before
tho fire with a broad smile upon his
countenance, evidently suppressing out
right laughter. "What is the matter

the Colonel, who was still excite 1 from !

tho second avenue, ho met thn object of
his search, grasped him by the hand,
apologized iu tho most sincere manner,
aud, the weather being cold invited him
to his tent, aud treated him to apple
toddy. The appeased individual dc.

and snickering at the firo This time
tho Colonel waxed warm, and demanded
peremptorily to be informed of the cause
of his unbecoming behavior and suspi.

out, said : (iYou treated the drummer
to apple toddy; ho looks so much liko

it was not apple toddy.

appreciating tho value of their wiiiiug
