Far from the noisy, bustling city of San Fran cisco lies the city of the dead. Secluded among the rolliug hills, embowered in shrubbery, and perfumed by the wild lilac, is Lone Mountain Cem etery, the " Land of the Great Departed." Lone Mountain! Is there not something in a name? and what name could be more appropriate—what a musical pathos, with a rytlun of sadness blended therewith. We approached the silent city for the first time, not with feelings of curiosity, but rather with feel ings akin to those experienced by those who pay their pilgrimage to the tomb of the Prophet, for within its enclosures Sieep California's honored dead. On the highest point, as if to watch over and guard the interest's of California's dead, as he was wont to guard the interests of her living citi zens, lies the murdered Broderick. Above his head au admiring people have reared a massive yet beautiful monument, not to perpetuate his memory, for that will be banded down from father to son for generations—but-as a token of their re gard for one who, while living, they honored with their confidence. With the blood of Broderick California was sealed to the Union. Close by the last resting place of Broderick, with bis martial cloak wrapped around him, sleeps F 3tf by with bis martial cloak wrapped around him, sleeps another no less honored of Pacific's noble dead. The Orator, Senator and Soldier, General Baker, whose eloquence was mighly to move the hearts of the people and whose sword was a terror to the foes of our common country. It is well they sleep side by side, that between the two honored shrines California s sons kneel, and swear auew to defend and protectFwith life and property, and their sacred honor, th^ Union for which they died, while Old Ocean in the di-tance shall respond a deep toned "Amen ! " In visiting Lone Mountain one loses in a great degree that dread of death which all feel more or less. To know that when our change shall come, and we be called upon to add one more to the population of the silent city, that our long home is to be made so lovely,while ever-blooming flowers will shed their fragrance around our head, and crown our bed with beauty ; watched by the lov ing care of friends, and admired by the stranger that visits our grave. Were it not for the inverted torch, and the inscriptions that tell of death, one might suppose that he was wandering amid the beauties of some fairy grotto, where Die tender violets bent in smiles To elves that sported nigh. Tossing the drops of fragrant dew To scent the evening sky ; They kissed the rose in love and mirth, And its petals fairer grew; A shower of pearly dust they brought, Anfi o'er the lily threw. Plant flowers o'er the graves of the loved and lost ones, and make their resting place an emblem of the beauties of the Paradise" of soul*.—[Red Bluff Independent. " Over the Rocky Mountains' height, Like ocean in its tided might, The liviDg sea rolls onward, on! And onward, on, the stream shall pour, Aud reach the far Pacific shore, And fill the plains of Oregon." [Airs. Hale's Poems. The restless throng those " plains" have fill'd Like gardens fair that "shore" is tilled : 1 ' The living " waves now backward beat! Across " the Rocky Mountains' height " The lightnings bring New York in sight, Aud business throbs . lot g their feet! JUPITKR. Jupiter, the son of Saturn and of Rhea, when born, was concealed by his mother in a cave of Mount Ida, in Crete. He was fed by the bees and the doves, and drank the milk of the goat Amalthea. To prevent his cries reaching the ears of his father, the Curetes danced their war dances, clattering their arms around his cradle. On the dethronement of Saturn, Jupiter divided his dominions with his brothers Nep tune and Pluto. The postion which he re served for himself was the Heaven; Earth and Olympus were common property. Jupi ter w .s king of gods and mtn ; the thunder was his weapon; and he carried a shield called Egis, made for him by Vulcan, which when shaken sent fnrlh storm and tempest The eagle was his favorite bird, the oak his sacred tree. The king of the Gods had a numerous progeny, both by mortal and immortal moth ers. Themis bore him the Fates, the Seas ons, Peace, Order and Justice; Eurynome, the Graces; Mnemosyne, the Muses; the nymph Maia, Mercury ; by Ceres, he had Proserpine; by Dione, Venus; by Latona, Apollo and Diana; by Juno, who was his queen and lawful wife, he was the father of Mars, Vulcan, Hebe and the Uytbise. The terrestial loves of this god gave rise to a variety of adventures, and produced a co pious list of gods and heroes. The following are a few of them : Alemena, the daughter of Electryon, was betrothed to her cousin Amphitryon, but re fused to acknowledge him as e husband until he had avenged the death of her father on the Teieboans. During his absence in the war against them, Jupiter, who had fallen in love with Alemena, assumed his form, and by narrating a tale of victory to the maiden, ob tained her favor. The celebrated hero Her cules was the son of Jupiter and Alemena. Antiope, daughter ol Nycteus and niece of Lycus king of Tnebes, was surprised by J upi ter in the form of a satyr. Dreading the anger of her father, she fled to the town of Sicyon, where she married Epopeus. Nyc teus put an end to his life, charging his broth er to take vengeance on Antiope and htr hus band. Soon afterward, Lycus slew Epopeus, and led Antiope back a captive to Thebes. On the way she brought forth twins, whom her uncle exposed on the mountains, where they were found by a shepherd, who reared them, naming the one Zethus, the other Arn phion. Antiope, who was treated with the utmost cruelty by Dyrce, the wife of Lycus. fled for protection to her sons when they were grownup. They attacked and slew Lycus, and tying Dirce by the hair to a wild bull, let and and a feel pay for he his his re of to a or him drag her until she expired! They seized on the government of Thebes, which they surrounded with walls, the stones moving themselves to the sound of the lyre which Mercury had gtven to Amphion. Enamored of the beauty of Leda, the wife of Tynnareus, Jupiter took the form of swan, and gained her love. S-he brought forth two eggs, from one of which tame I'oliux and Helen, the children of Jupiter; from the other Castor and Clytemnestra, the mortal offspring of her husband. A flame of fire concealed the god from Egina, the daughter of the river-god Asopus. and she became the mother of Eacus, so re nowned for his justice that he wa3 made one of thejudges of the under-world. A shower of gold was the form in which Jupiter pene trated the brazen chamber where Acrisius, king of Argos, and shut up his daughter Danae, who bore to the god a son named Perseus. lo, the daughter of the river Inachus, was seen and loved by Jupiter She rejected the suit of the god; but as she fled from him she checked her flight by spreading a dense aloud around her. Juno, looking down from heaven, and seeing the cloud, and also miss in'g her husband, suspected mischief. She sprang to earth, but Jupiter, aware of her approach, had turned lo into a white cow. When Juno admired the animal, and asked him to give it to her, he could not refuse her request. The goddess, who knew well who the cow was, set the hundred-eyed Argus to watch her; and, as only two of his eyes slept at a time, there was little hope of deceiving his vigilance. At length Jupiter desired Mer cury to kill him, as the only mode of libera ting lo. Mercury, taking the guise of a shepherd, came and sat by Argus, and by playing on his pipe lulled all his eyes to slum ber, and then cut off his head with his crooked sword. Juno placed the eyes of Ar gus in the tail cf her favorite bird the pea cock, and sent a Fury to torment lo, who fled all through the world until she came to Egypt, where Jupiter restored her to her original form, and 6he bore a son named Epaphus. Callisto, the daughter of Lycaon king of Arcadia, wa* one of the companions of Diana. Jupiter, taking the form of that goddess, vio lated the modesty of the maiden ; and Diana, on learning what had happened, drove the guiltless offender from her society. Callisto was the mother of a son named Areas. Juno, then giving loose to her xengeance] turned her into a bear. Her son, when he grew up, meeting her in the woods, was on the point of killing her with his darts, when Jupiter, transporting both mother and son t« the skies, made them the constellations of the two bears. Juno obtained from Oceanus and Tethys a promise that they should never sink into their waves. A* Europa, the daughter of A c-nv kin* of Sidon, wa* o.u? day *ivv.mr !; ,.eif * ^ a by re of her companions and gathering- flowers in tha meads on the shore of the sea, Jupiter ap proached her in the form of a beautiful white bull. The maiden caressed him, and at length ventured lo mount upon his back: the god immediately bounded on the surface of the sea, and ran with his lovely burden along it until he reached the isle of Crete, where he resumed his proper form. Europa became the mother of Minos, RhadamanthuB and Sarpedon. Adventures more becoming a king are told of Jupiter. Such are those of his descent to earth to look into the conduct of men. Hearing of the enormous wickedness of mankind, Jupiter came down to earth to as certain if what had reached his ears was true. The reality exceeded the report. He came to the palace of Lycaon king of Arcadia, and made himself known. Lycaon derided his pretensions, and to try him set human flesh before him for food. The god in indignation destroyed his house with lightning, and turn ed its impious master into a wolf. Jupiter, accompanied by Neptune and Mer cury, came down one time to earth. It was late in the evening when they passed by the house of a peasant named Hyrieus. Seeing that they were wayfarers, Hyrieus pressed them to enter and partake of his hospitality. The gods accepted the kind invitation, and, pleased with their enteitainment, they re vealed to him their rank, and asked if he had any wish to gratify. The wife of the kind host was dead, and he had sworn never to marry another, yet he wished to have a child. The gods took the hide of his only ox which he had offered in sacrifice to them, and buried it in the earth. Ten months after wards. a child came to light, which he named Orion, and who became a mighty hunter, and was at last slain by Diana. J upiter and his son Mercury once came in the evening to a village, where they sought hospitality, but every door was closed against them. At length they reached a cottage, where dwelt an aged couple named Philemon and Baucis. By them were received and en tertained as well as their humble means would allow. Churmed with the good old pair, the gods revealed their rank, and de sired them to accompany them to the summit of a neighboring hill. On looking down to wards their village, Philemon and his wife saw nothing but a lake, with their cottage standing on its side. As they gazed, it be came a temple; and on the gods asking them what was their desire, they said to serve them in that temple, and to die at the same mo ment. Their wish was granted ; and one day as they were standing before the temple, and talking over the wonderful tale, they were turned into trees where they stood they of which wife a forth the from re one was the her to a by to of The Shelling of Chattanooga. —One of the most impressive scenes we have ever wit nessed occurred in the Presbyterian Church on yesterday. The services were being held by the Rev. J)r. Palmer, of New Orleans, and the pews and aisles were crowded with officera and soldiers, private citizens, ladies and chil dren. A prayer had been said and one of the hymns sung. The organist was absent, "and I will be thankful," continued the minister, "if some one in the congregation will raise the tune." The tune was raised; the whole con gregation joined in singing, as in days gone by ; the sacred notes in humble melody from the house of God, swelling their holy tribute to His glory, and dying away at last like the echoes of departed days. The second, or what is known as the long prayer, when out upon the calm, still air. there came an alien sound—the sullen voice of a hostile gun— ringing from the north bank of the river and echoing back and back among the far-off glens of Lookout peak. It was sudden—it took every one by surprise ; for few, if any, expected the approach of an enemy. The day was one of fasting aod prayer; the public mind was upon its worship. Its serenity had not been crossed by a shadow, and it was not until another and another of these unchristian accents trembled in the air, and hied them selves away to the hills, that it was generally realized that the enemy were shelling the town .—Chattanooga Rebel, Aug 22nd. Reverdy Johnson. —Considerable curios ity is manifested to know the opinion of this great statesman on the constitutionality of the Emancipation Proclamation. He came very near the point in his speech before the Sara toga County (N. Y.) Agricultural Society, September 4th, in whicli the correspondent of the Alta thus reports him : His address was brief, and largely devoted to national affairs. It was pervaded by a spir it of intense devotion to the Union, and en joined the duty of sustaining the Government in the struggle with the rebellion. Without expressing an opinion as to the validity of the Emancipation Proclamation, he *aid that if, in the exercise uf any constitutional war pow er, slaves should become free, they cannot be re-enslaved ; and if not, then the whole ques tion would rest with the people of those States when they resumed their places in the Union. w to California and Oregon Railroad. —It is stated that the Directors of this railroad project intend to call a meeting of the subscri bers to the survey now in progress, for the purpose of perfecting an organization and taking steps to have the engipeer's report and maps laid before the next Congress.

'Tis said that figures can't lie, but figures of speech seldom do anything else. A fellow's eye may be cowardly when his nose is pug-nacious.

It is always right to make the best of a bad po sition, but not to put ourselves in a bad position because we can make the best of it. No punishment is too severe for him who roots up a thrill and plants in its place only a fact. Sorrow is a kind of rust of the soul which every new idea contributes in it? passage to scour away. It is the putrefaction of stagnant life, and is rem edied by exercise and motion. If the wicked flourish, and you suffer, be not discouraged. Perhaps they are fatted lor destruc tion, and you dieted for health. Anything may become nature to man. . The rare thing is to find a nature that is truly natural. He that has no friend and no enemy is one of the vulgar, without talents, powers or energy. Mere bashfulness without merit is awkward ; and merit without modesty is insolent.

Those smile but sadly who havo no face in all the world to smile back to them. To determine what is chiefly useful to man, it is probably necessary first to determine the use of man himself. In private places, among sordid objects, an act of truth or heroism seems at once to draw to itself the sky as its temple and the sun as its candle. To think is not merely to have ideas—to be th e theater across which images and emotions are marched, but to sit in the midst as the master of one's conceptions. Not only commission makes a sin. A man is guilty of all the sins he hates not. Listen to every zephyr for some reproof; it is surely there, and he is unfortunate who does not hear it. A charitable untruth and uncharitable truth are both to be carefully avoided.
