A., who was recently appoint ed Assistant Provost Marshal General for Or egon, Washington, and Idaho, has been re lieved from the duties of that office by the War Department. Major L. will rJsume command of Fort Boise. M hen courting in Germany, the gentle man says: "If you is content 'to get -better for worse, to be happy for miserable—and if you smoke and dritiKs ale, I shall take you for no better and much worse, and we will be snipsed. ' To all of which the lady says : Yaw, yaw, fou ish my boggy, yaw." j FilOKJJUS APG5.2.C. Apollo was the god of archery, prophecy, and music. He was the son of Jupiter and f he Titaness Latona, and brother of Diana. Latona, ere she gave birth to the twins Apollo and Diana, was persecuted in a mo t cruel manner by Juiio, who menaced with iier wrath any country or island e.n earth which should give shelter to the goddess. It was in vain that Latona implored them to take pity on and relieve her; all feon d too much the vengeance of the queen of heaven. At length the isle of Delos, which at that time Hooted among the Cyclades, offered her an asylum ; and she brought forth her chil dren m that island, winch thenceforth remain ed fixed, and where Apollo had one of his principal temples a musician lhat tlie very trees and rocks mov ed When Apollo was grown up he went to Pythos or Delphi, where he killed the enor mous serpent Python, which infested the sur rounding country. He here built a magnifi cent temple: and Delphi became celebrated lor its oracle, by which the god of prophecy announced the future to mankind. As Phnobus Apollo was a remarkably hand some and accomplished god, he had many love adventures. 'I he muse Calliope (Fair-voice) bore him n son named Orpheus, who became so skillful to ilie tones of his lyre. Orpheus was mm ril'd to Euredicr, whom he tender! t lov ed ; but, a snake luting her foot as she run through tbe grass to escape the pursuit of Arista's, she died of the wound. Iier discon solate husband formed the hold resolution of descending to the under-world, and imploring its rulers to let her return to tlie light of day. He struck the chords of his lyre, and drew forth tones which sofiened the heart of the stern monarch of Erebus, and Eurvdiee was r stored, on condition that her husband should not look hack till they had reached the upper world. They journeyed on through the gloomy regions of Erebus, and were now on the confines of light, when Orpneus, fearing that Eurvdiee might not be following, looked back. By this imprudent act all his labor was undone, and Eurvdiee lost for ever. lie now shunned all human society , and.'di spr ing the rites of Bacchus, was torn to pieces by the women of Thrace Shortly after his victory over the Python, Apollo, seeing the little Cupid bending his how, mocked at his efforts. Cupid, to punish him, shot him in the heart with his golden arrow of love ; and at the same time discharg ed his leaden arrow of aversion into the bo som of Daphne, the daughter of the liver-god Peneus. Apollo, seeing tlie nymph, pursued iier ; but she fled from him with all her speed. He had nearly overtaken her, when she reach ed the bank of her father 8 stream. She cried to Peneus for aid ; and when Apollo thought to grasp her, lie found that his arms encircled a bay-tree, into which she had been changed. Cassandra a daughter of Priam king of Troy, attracted the love of Apollo ; and in re turn she demanded the gift of prophecy. The god readily granted it; but the princess broke her word when she become a prophetess. Unable to recall his gift, Apollo rendered it useless by depriving he, o! credit; for though she always announced the truth, no one ever believed her. Apollo also loved Marpessa, the daughter of Even us. Her father wished her (o hearken to the !? Of! ! hilt hpl» hour! irae zl.-s-.rsf.wl ~ _ was tefeired to Jupiter, who nl.nwed the maid to choose for herself, and she gave her hand to her mortal love. Having seen one day Cyrene the grand daughter of the river-god Peneus engaged in a combat with a lion, in defence of tier father's flecks, Apollo became enamored of her. He carried her off in his golden chaiiot over the sea, to that part cf Libya afterwards named ftom her; and she gave birth to a son named Arisiaeus. who discovered the culture of the olive and the mode of managing bees. Coronis. the daughter ef Phlegyas king of the Lapithte, had yielded to the suit of Apoi lo. She hewever did not continue faithful to him ; and the raven having witnessed h<-r in fidelity, informed the god of it, who discharg ed one of his inevitable arrows into the bosom of Coronis. She died ! fstp Imi iLnT'Tr . i s,. net her own . ' , 1 r ur| born babe. Apollo I re ! )ei " e d when too late; he laid her on the M unera * pyre, and, taking the babe, gave him j to Chiron the Centaur to rear. To punish the raven, he changed his color from white, which till that time'it had been, to binck iEsCULAPIUS.— This son of Apollo by Co roms was named JEsculapius. He became a celebrated physician ; and his skill'was such, that he was able even to restore the dead to life. Pluto complaining to Jupiter of him. tiie king of gods s'ruck him with thunder; and Apollo in revenge shot with his arrows the Cyclops who had forged the thunderbolts. Tor this act he was banished from Heaven. Coming down Lo earth, he hired as herdsmen with Admetus king of J herae in Thessaly, and fed his flocks on the banks of the Amph ry»us. The prince treated his illustrious ser vant, with the utmost kindness; and Apollo out cf gratitude aided him to gain the hand of the beautiful Aleestis, the daughter of Pe lias. He also obtained of the Fates that when the appointed period of the life of Ad mstus should arrive, it might he deferred by one of his family dying in his stead. When the fatal time was come, Admetus besought in vam h:s aged faiher and niqdtfr lo prolong t his days. I be affection of Iiis wife now shone forth, and she magnanimously offered to de scend to the torn!) in his place. When Death came to fetch her, Apollo made fruitless ef forts to prevail upon him to forego his prey, and Aleestis was taken from her weeping husband and children. But Hercules, hap'' pening to come at that time to the house ol Ad met.us, engaged and overcame Death, and restored the queen to her family. Uvaeinthus, a beautiful youth, was loved by Apollo. As the god and his favorite were I one day playing with the discus, it rebounded and struck the youth so violently as to kill him. The mourning deity charged him into the flower named from him—the hyacinth. CyparisRus, another youth whom Apollo loved pined away with grief for the loss of a favorite stag which he had killed by accident, and was changed into a tree of his own name, The satyr Marsysas having found the pipe which Minerva had flung away, and learned to play on it, challenged Apollo to a musical contest. The god accepted the challenge :— Mount Tmoins was chosen judge, and decided ;n favor of the music of the lyre. All acqui psced in the justice of the sentence except M das king of the country ; and as a reward tor his had taste, Apollo bestowed upon him the ears of an ass; the unhappy Marsyas he flayed alive. Midas sought to conceal the altered form of his ears; but he could not bide the secret from his barber. He strictly e: joined him secrecy ; but silence \va» almost impossible to one of that loquacious fraternity. Bursting with the secret, he went, and digging a hole in the earlh, whispered into it, *• Kin'' Midas has got asses' ears." Lo ! soon after wards-a crop ot rushes sprung up from this hole, and as they waved in the wind, the words " King Midas has got asses' ears" were plainly heard. 1 he hawk, raven and swan were birds sa cred to Apollo. The bay or laurel was his favorite tree. in as Death of an Old Resident.—C aptain Isaac Graham, an old mountaineer, trapper and Indian fighter, and one of the earliest pioneers of this State, died November 8th, in 'bis city at half-past eight o'clock, aged sixty four, ears. The details of this man's life, if correctly told, would be of value to the his torian, and of absorbing interest to the. lovers of romantic and thrilling incident. He was! r>...________ t, , . horn in Botecourt county, Va., from whence he removed at an early age to Kentucky, be coming schooled in the rough and dangerous scenes in border life in infancy for his subse quent years of activity and adventuie among the savage tribes of New Mexico, the Rocky and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Captain Graham was one of those links which connect ed the present generation with the past, he having been intimate with many of the veter an explorers of the West, among whom was the renowned Daniel Boon-, at whose death he was present. He has been fi»r over thirty years a resident of California, living for the most part in Santa Cruz county, where he possessed valuable estates. He leaves sever 'd children and numerous friends who will sincerely deplore his demise. Thus another of the great landmarks of the age has crura bled away. A hero and a warrior sleeps un sung but not unwept.—[Alta. Cal. Upward of eleven coffins, originally con taining infant corpses, have been discovered feet high, composed of children's skulls, legs with the dried and shriveled flesh hanging from them, intermingled with little hands desiccated until they have acquired the look of birds' claws and the fragments of coffiins. dust, napkins, and infants' ejjps." The inter ference is that the bodies were those of still born children, or of perhaps somw that had died from natural causes, and had beer, de posited between the ceiling and the roof of the church for the purpose of saving the bur ial jees which had been paid by the parents, and which were subsequently embezzled. Langley s new directory of San Francisco gives that ciry a population of 103,000. Over 1000 new buildings have been put up within the past year. The street improvements $487,865 has been expended ; ^3.334 lineal teet of brick, and 5,889 feet of redwood spw ers have been constructed, at a cost of $140. 000.

We half wondered why they did not take the little coffin into their laps—the sleeper there lulled to rest without a bosom oi a cradle. We have wondered what use there was for tears in such a going in the early morning from home to home—like fair white doves with downy wings emerging from nether night, and fluttering for entrance at the win dows of heaven. Never has there been a hand wanting to take the wanderer in and shutout the darkness and the storm. Upon these little faces it never seemed to us that death should place his great seal. There is no thought of the charnel house in those young listeners to the invitation, whose acceptance we are bound not to forbid ; there should be morning-songs, and not sighs; fresh flowers and not badges of mourning; no tears, nor clouds, but bright faces and bright dawnings together.

New Game of Billiards.— During the recent Bombardment of Fort Wagner from the new Ironsides, it was found impossible to drive halls through tbe sand and coUon of which the works are made, or to elevate the guns so as to throw the shot in ns from a mor tar. The gunners resorted to the expedient of depressing the pieces, whereby the halls beach, bounded upward and over into the fortress. This was remarkably successful. ' These are what I call billiards," said the captain, watching the tiring. "They carotin on the bay and beach, and pocket the ball i.i the fort every time."
