And moodily had listened long To hear the dinner horn. The welcome blast was heard at last, And down he dropped the hoe; But the good man shouted in his ear, " My boy, hoe out your row!'' Although a "bard one" w as the row, To use a pjowman's phrase, And the lad, as sailors have it, Beginning well to "haxe," " I can," said he, and manfully He seized again his hoe, And the good man smiled to see The boy hoe out his row. The lad the text remembered,} And proved the moral well, That perseverance to the end At last will nobly tell. Take courage, man ! resolve you can, And strike a vigorous blow; In life s great field of varied toil Always hoe out your row." kn nM , From Humboldt.— Messrs. Vinton, Ben. nett, Romer, Weimer, Smith, Lewis and oth ers, recently arrived from Humboldt, repor t that the road is free from molestation by I n _ dians, and traveling good. This party came a 'round about wav, and encountered quite a Tough country. Their course, on leaving the Humboldt mines, lay in a north-easterly di rection, up the Little Humboldt, thence over on to the waters of the Owyhee and down to the Snake. They report mining in the Hum boldt region still progressing, though thfere is quite a depression in the price of 'feer* since Spring. Sheba fept, that sold in. the early part of the season for so;ne $2000 and up wards, now only command about $360. The reason for this depreciation, we cannot account for, unless the " big fish" intend to swallow the liitle ones. This rock has been shipped to Europe to he worked, for some time past, in consequence of the presence of minerals that it was impossible to separate by any process known in this country'. Whether new deveb opyner.Js oh the other side of the water have had anything to do in h/ingidgdewn the price —or whether we are correct in our supposi tions regarding the "big fish"—remains to be seen. Ruled Out. or of Ruled Out. —The printer's composing rule is a ticket good for soup, when presented to any well-posted exhibitant of burned-cork colored countenances, "alligators stuffed, and other skins of ill-shaped fishes." Not many evenings past, an ignorance of this rule made the complainant disgorge a full-sized four-bit piece to the infinite satisfaction of the recipi ent, who—couldn't stand the p-r-e-double-s When ignorance is bliss, &c.

Mountain Scenery. —Of all the fights that nature offers to the eye and -mind of man, mountains have always tirred my strongest feelings. I have -eon the ocean when it was turned np from the bottom by tempest, and noon was like night by the conflict of the bil lows and the storm, that tore and scat tered them, in mist and foam acro-s the sky. I have seen the desert rise around me and oalmiy, in the midst of thous ands uttering cries of horror, and pgra of some gigantic city of conflagration flying across the wilderness, every col tpn glowjng with intense fire, and'every h—the sky vaulted with earth a furnace.

All ousts of any suit shall be paid by the imrty or parties against whom judgment shall be renkered, On motion, the meeting adjourned sine die. Affectation naturally counterfeits those Tcxcellencies which are placed at the greatest distance from possibility of at tainment, because, knowing our own de /ects, we eagerly endeavor to supply them with artificial excellence. He that teaches as anything which we knew not before, is undoubtedly fr be reverenced as a master; be that con veys knowledge by more pleasing ways ay very properly be loved as a bene factor; at»eL he that supplies life with iunocept amusement, will be certainly 'ssed as a pleasing companion. ice is a uniform and tractable er intellectual distempers are in different constitutions of t wbMi SgV' tl,es pride o( Teatj the pritfe pf pother favor of the covetous bring 4 ino| is denied, \JBeware or this Rock.- -There is a spoken of in Scripture, if we are correcr in our recollection of the passage, which, if it falls upon you " It will break you in pieces, and upon which if you fall, ** It will grind you to powder." This is probably to be taken in a spiritual sense. But we know a rock upon tfhich if a man fall, it will squeeze him flatter than a slap-jack, and up on which if he fkll and ever recover so aa to be at the resurrection, it will be in such a crippled condition that he may be in danger of non-recognition, and fumed away even from the bumble position to which he may be entitled. m This is intended to be taken in a financial sense, and to enable parties who have never seen the rock, to avoid it We here present a skeleton view of it, that can not be mistak en, for it is a picture taken from .the life Steer clear of its shadow ; keep a^ay from its influence ; avoid it as you would a pesti lence ;—here is the picture; " Ten days from date, without grace, I promise to pay to the order of J. N. Wil liams (or any other man), at his office in Red Bluff (or any other place), the sum of — dollars, with monthly interest, at the rate of three per cent, per month ; said interest due and payable monthly in advance. If not so paid, to become a part of the principal, com pound, an<l bear same rate of interest; but if default be made in the payment at maturity, in such case the amount then due shall bear interest at the rate of five per cent, per month till paid. (Signed.) - If you like the picture, embrace It, but in the light oP-experience, ware. we warn you to 'be* be Gold Hill. —This is the name given the hill immediately above the mouth of Bear Run on Elk Creek. There are very rich laims in this hill, as we have reason to konw from actual prospecting. In one claim we found from 15 to 25 cents to the pan, and plenty of dirt to last for years and years to come. A ditch covers the principal portion of the hill, but at this time, there is not suffi cient water in it to make it available to a ma jority of those holding claims there. Next Spring will make Gold Hill a lively place. Political Speaking. —Judge Waite made a tour of the county last waek, and delivered speeches at Piacerville, Centreville and Pio neer City, in favor of the election of Governor Wallace, for delegate to Congress, and was followed at the various ^points, by Mr. Hol brook, of Piacerville,in advocacy of the claims of Judge Cannady. The two parties are now fully in the field, each making a desperate effort to chop the other's head off. To hear the abuse that each heaps upon the other, would lead a stranger, that didn't know bet ter, to believe them all bad. -^'The Time of Day. —The people are under obligations to the proprietors of the Saw-mill on Buena Vista Bar, for blowing a steam whistle precisely at 6 o'clock in the morning, 12 m. and f 6 p. m. It is quite a convenience to parlies without their pieces, and even those who have can regulate them by the steam whistle. We m«y as easily make wrong esti mates of our own courage as onr own humility, by mistaking a sudden effar veseuce of imagination for settled reso lution. of Its in in ing To do the best can seldom be the lot of man—it is sufficient if, when oppor tunities are presented, he is ready to do uood. How little virtue could be prac ticed if beneficence were to wait.always for the most proper objects, and the noblest occasions—occasions that may he^r happen, and objects that may rigger be found ? Church Subscription.— Rev. Father A. Z. Poulin, of the Catholic Church, is making an effort to build a Chapel in this place, and for that purpose subscription lists are distrib uted about the city. Those who feel an in terest in the growth and prosperity of thp place should encourage the enterprise. A vestry should be attached, and in time, as it can be afforded, a residence for the Curate. Suhaoription lists may be found at the fol lowing places ; International Hotel, Magno lia Saloon, White's Exchange, Poujades Res taurant, Washoe, Patrick Lynch's, Idaho Brewery, and McClinchy's Store, A competency ought to secure a man from poverty—or, if he wastes it, make him ashamed of publishing his necessi ties.

A card at the head of the grave, bore the inscription : " Howard^ murdered on the 7th of September." Mr. Goodwin's traveling companion informed him that he had seen the parties who found and buried the murdered man, and that- he had three shot wounds in the breast, and was also cut in the head with an axe.* The place where this occurred is 15 miles noulh-east from here between Moore's Creek and North Boise, 14 or 15.mile8 from any settlement an the lower road to South Boise.
