THE HYDRAULIC PRESS.
Ov, We hope every ono will read “Cruci
'ble’s” beautiful “OSd-Titne Parting,” on our
first page. It contains passages which, for ex
quisite home sentiment and felicity of expression,
are rarely equalled.
It is this same home sentiment, this tender
looking back at the past, which especially char
acterises the literature of California, and gives
to our hard mountain lifo a redeeming touch of
softness. It may bo an indication of weakness lo
indulge yearningly in such retrospections; but if
so it is the onlv “weakness” Californians know,
and for God’s sake let it not be scoffs 1 at!
Acknowledgements.
Oar sincere thanks are das to friendly con
temporaries who have noticed the HyoßAtTLic
Press with words of kindly praise. Perhaps
they have felt the value of such words them
selves, and will believe in the earnestness of our
thanks. We hope to retain and deserve their
good opinion.
Mr Geo. Wef.ch, of Nevada, very oons'dor
ately sent us a package of Eastern pipers last
Saturday morning, several hours in advance of

The Hesperian.
It is a pleasure to speak of this paper, because
it is a pleasure to praise, and there is nothing
about it but what is praiseworthy.
The Editress, Mrs F. H. Day, is a true wo
man, and the proper one to conduct a journal
which addresses itself to the sex. She exercises
the “woman’s right” of catering to the public,
at the same time that she cheerfully performs
the duties of a wife and mother. In answer to
correspondents she makes the following admira
ble reference to her domestic life:
“No, we are not a widow. We have one of
the best better halves this side of the Atlantic,
(at least we think so) and one of the cosiest,
happiest little homes on the Pacific coast.”
Again .
“Our health has not been so good for seven
years as at present. Perhaps you m ly form some
idea how strong wo are when wo tell you that,
with the assistance of our little dmghter, wo do
our household work, not even hiring a person a
a day now and then to Jo rough work.”
Long live the Hesperian and its noble Editress!
Craiy Jane Is Dead!
Start not, virtuous reader, that we call your
attention to the final exit of one of earth’s Irail
daughters; should her hand even touch you,
there would be no contamination from the con
tact NOW,—
“"Past all dishonor.
Death has left on her
Only the beautiful!”
A few years ago, poor Crazy Jane was a vir
tuous wife. The deep mystery of maternity was
about to be revealed to her, and she lay wrapped
in the thick clouds of the primal curse, —“in
sorrow shall thou bring forth,” —when her pro
tector, the father of her babe, deserted her!
Left her alone in pain and want! What wonder
that she rose frbtn her bed crazed and despairing,
wandering in search of her husband, loving him
yet but finding him not! What wonder that with
reason departed virtue, and that her feeble steps
thenceforth led dawn the dreadful path of femin
ine debasement! Even this had not been but for
the fiendishness of .men (!) to whom her sorrow
■was not sacred, nor her shattered reason a paao
j)ly df protection. She fell irretrievably, and for
many months was a sid spectacle in our streets
of woman’s wrongs and worn in’s degradation.—
At last she is purified by death—
“ Perishing gloomily.
Spurred by contumely,
Cold inhumanity,
burning insanity,
Into her rest.”
'Lot self sufficiency, secure in the absence of
temptation aud sorrow, heap no curses on her
grave, and pity weep for whom she could not
■save.
“Think of her mournfully,
Gently and humanly:
Not of the stains of her,
AH that is left of her
Now, is pare womanly.”
Serenade.
Some gentlemen who have “music in their
souls” and are moved by “concord of sweet
•sounds,” awoke several of our citizens one night
this week to the exqu’s'le pleasures of dreamy
melodies deftly played beneath their windows.
In plain English, a party of gallant young men
■serenaded the ladies Bat the delicious tones of
midnight harmony could not bo confined to the
ears of favored women, any more th in a land
scape can be fenerd out of sight, or the “brave
o’erhanging heavens” roofed from the common
gaze. Certain printer men, who are always ta
king notes, caught those of the serenaders, and
they also saw a certain curtained window flash
up with a subdued light and grow poetical by
the brieT appearance of a moving shadow.
Then all was dark and all was still.
Welly good. John!

MOrSTAIN TANNERY.
It may not be known to all our readers
that there are two Tan Yards in this vicinity-,
one of them in cur own county, near Chero
kee, and the other in Yuba county, near
Camptonville. Thinking some particulars of
this branch of industry would be of general
interest, we paid a visit to the former on
Monday last, and will no.w tell what we saw
and learned. The particular establishment
alluded to is not important on account of its
own size and extent of business, which are
limited thoogh likely to be much increased,
but for the reason that it indicates the capa
city of the mining regions to develop other
pursuits than that of gol d digging.
The Tannery of Messrs. Dorian, Long &
Guthrie is situated on the road from North
San Juan to Emory’s Crossing, three miles
from the former place and about one mile
from Cherokee, in a pleas vat, shady hollow
which is well watered by cool, soft springs.
It was started early in the year 1831 by Mr.
Dorian, and (he cost of construction of houses,
mills, vats, &c., was $2,000. B irk of the
best quality is abuniant everywhere around
the yard. That of the White Oak is the kind
usually employed, being most plentiful and
easily obtained; though the bark ot the Live
0 ik is much richer lu Fannin, but very thin
and scarce. Mr. McCloskey, the foreman,
who is an old and experienced Tanner, says
the bark used by him makes leather of a
much finer quality and fairer color than any
he ever saw elsewhere, and that one cord of
it is worth two of any bark Ue ever used iu
the old States. The bark of the Spruce is
also very rich in Tannin, and is found in
considerable quantities, but bas on it so much
“ross” or rough, scaly surface, that its use
is less economical. The inner bark of the
While 0 ik, particularly that part taken from
the butt of the tree, is frequently an inch or
more thick, all good, and grinds easily. The
cost of obtaining the bark at the yard is
about $7 a cord. The yard is capable of
turning out and finishing yearly twelve hun
dred heavy hides, and more than that num
ber of small skins; but as only two men are
now employed, the number of heavy hides
tinned and finished ready for the manufac
turer is only 750, consisting of harness, skir
ting and sole leather. In addition to the
above, 700 sheep skins are annually tanned
and finished, the cost of finishing in both in
stances being the heaviest item of expense
connected with the establishment. Very few
calf skins are tanned, as there is not mdeh
demon! for that kin! of leather, and as but
little veol is killed in the mountains, calf
skins cannot be readily procure!. The beef
hides and sheep skins are procure! from the
butchers iu the several adjoining towns, (who
now get a good price for what they formerly
threw away) and cost, for luo heavy hides,
$2 50; for the skins, 25 cents each. The
leather produced at this yard is mostly sol!
to Sacramento manufacturers, the largest
portion being bought by R. Stone of that
place, who writes iu regard to it that it is
more saleable than any other leather brought
iuto that market. The harness, skirting and
sole leather bring at wholesale 35 cents a
poun 1, on an average. The sheep skins are
mostly sold in the mountains, where they
are in great demand for leggings, an! bring
by the dozen eight or nine dollars.
The leather is rendered much less valuable
by the careless manner in which the bides
are remove! from the anim ils, being badly
sliced and cut in the process, and by the uni
versal custom of branding, which latter be
ing done on the hip of the animil destroys
the best part of the hide. Tanners estimite
the loss from these causes at fully thirty per
cent., and declare that but for this they could
cotnpe e with the leather producers of the
Atlantic sile. It would be well for butchers
and stock owners to take note of the fact.
By removing the hide without cutting it the
butcher could commmd for it a much
better price, whilst cattle can bo better
branded on the horn chin on the buttock.
Brands on the latter place are frequently re
newed aud a large space of the hide thus
rendered useless, making a whole side of
leather in my times utterly unsaleable, at
great less to the tanner.
The demand for California leather has not
heretofore been very great, bat it is steadily
increasing as manufacturers become ac
quainted with its superiority and compara
tive cheapness. We are informal that a
prominent dealer in S icramento, already re
ferred to, who formerly impo ted largely
from the Eastern States, has ceased importing
altogether, preferring to purchase from our
own tanneries, and it is his opinion that in
a short lime the leather dealers generally
will toll >w his example, 'foe mountainous
regions of th.s State possess "peculiar facili
ties for the tanning business, on account of
the great plenitude and easy accessibility of
bark, and the ease with which water power
can be obtained. For the am mnt of popul i
tiou, there is probibly more beef eaten here
than in any other State, which renders hides
readily obtainable, and they are said to be
larger and heavier than those of the Atlantic
States. If made into le other in the very
locality where they are gathered, the heavy
item of inland transportation is saved, and
the leather can be sent to the lower markets
instoalof the raw hides. There is reason
to believe that California will yet be a great
leather exporting country. To make her so,
it is only necessary that the heavy cost of
labor should be reduced by the introduction
of economical machinery, and that, the busi
ness of tanning be conducted on a large and
liberal scale, instead of being pursued, as it
is now, more as an experiment than anything
else.

RICH QUARTZ LEAD.
We are obliged to a friend for the following
interesting communication:
Mr. Editor;— Brief mention of a rich quartz
discovery made within a few months past near
our neighboring village of Camptonvillo, the lo
cality of which I had the pleasure of visiting
with some friends a few days since, may not be
unacceptable to you as a statistical note of the
resources of the region within the sphere of your
circulation. The valuable ledge of which I
speak, is situate on the west bank of a deep cart
on, or gulch, putting into the North Yuba oppo
site the mouth ot Goodyear’s Creek, in Sierra
county.
The quartz crops out about 300 feet above the
bed of me creek, at the bottom of the carton,
and if the precious metal visible to the naked eye
in the greater part of the rook already quarried
is a criterion, as I have heard knowing ones as
sert, the proprietors, Messrs T. G. Smith & Co.
h.ye “•truck it rich.” The ledge d ps or ‘'pitch
es in” as the miners term it, in a westerly direc
tion, at an angle of ab me 4> degrees. A d rift
following the lead has been run iuto the hill 50
or 60 feet, from and on either side of which lat
eral drifts extend. Several hundred tons of rich
looking rock have been t iicen from those drifts,
an( l ar y lyi n g on the hill side awaiting the erec
tion ot a mitt which the Compiny h ive in con
templation. The vein will average about a foot
in width, and is a continuition of .ha somewhat
noted "Watson ledge,” on the epposite side of
the "Divide.”
Messrs Smith & Co. are certainly deserving
of success, lor nothing but genuine enterprise
would impel men to prosecute the operation they
are engaged in, in a locality so d ffieult of ac
cess. Iq get to the scene of their labors you
have to siide for a mile down an angle of about
60 degrees, which renders a stoat crupper to the
saddle if you are on horseb ick a matter of essen
tial importance. The trouble and fitigue of an
ascent or d-scent are however in a great measure
alleviated to lovers of the picturesque, by an
occasional glimpse of the wild and des late yet
grand scenery of the Sierras. From about half
way down the hill, the distant mining camp of
Monte ChriJto can ba seen, perche I on the top of
a mountain ne>.:' the peak called the *'Fir Cap.”
Immediately beyond and towering up still higher
into the blue ether, stands the ‘'Saddle Back,”
seated on which a Titan might ride old Terra as
she goes cavorting through spice, without feat
of being unhorsed, llalher a pietty feature of
the scenery is Goodyear’s Creek, the bed of
which can bo traced from its mouth at the North
\ übi, up through the hills, with here and ti.ere
a green spot dotting its sides, to its summit in
the ravines around the “Saddle Back.”
Good luck to the hardy fellows delving in those
wild fastnesses; foe without an occasional ‘streak’
their life would be a cheerless one!—and begging
your pardon for rehashing an old pun, let me say
to the boys about town wtu have a weakness for
exami ing pints—Go up to the carton and
examine quartz, and after having gone down and
up that hill once or twice, if you should not have
tound the "color,” you will certainly find what I
did a good dinner at the “Mountain House,”
with an appetite to eat it.
Fancies about the Atlantic Cable.
A poem of Longfellow’s expresses the
idea mat the telegraph wire uniting England
aud America is the umbilical cord connecting
laitheraai child.
The Chicago Journal says:
“The world is finished; its spinal cordis
laid, and now it begins to think! A living
nerve has been unwound from the Anglo-
Saxon heart and tied in a true love-knot be
tween the old world and the new.”
“Ebenezer Sprout,” of Hirpcr's Weekly,
gets off the following.;
“What a saving of pons, ink ami paper!
And only to think how liuo,
To get all the nows from the other sido
By dropping a single line!”
Through the courtesy of Mr. Geo. Dirrick
-Bin, of Freeman’s Crossing, we arc in pas
sion of the following item-:
Robbers About —On Thursday night last,
a gang of robbers went the rounds of the Chi
na cabins at Freeman’s Crossing, and made the
inmates “ shell out ” all the money they had in
their possession—in all amounting to about
S4)O. Iho Chinamen say there were five white
men, and all were armed with fistols and
knives, and two of th.-m had rifles. A gentle
man from Celestial Valley, two miles from
Freeman’s, says he observed along the road
where several men camped the same night of
the robbery, where they had cooked chickens,
and left, considerable pork strewn around the
camp —and it is supposed the robbers camped
there, and had a jolifiiation over their ill-got
ten gains
Mill Flume Down. —On Thursday morning
last, the mill flume of Lindsey, Caswell & Co.,
situated on the head of Clear Creek, about a
mile from town, fell down with a tremendous
crash—making a perfect wreck of about throe
hundred feet of their flu ne. The boys were
very busily engaged at sawing, and were run
ning their mill day and night to supply the in
crea-cd demand for lumber, and this nrshap
will be a great drawback to them. Their loss
will probably be SSO3 or SI,OOO.
That Dig Fight Again. —Tne Marys
ville Democrat, with provoking coolness,
chronicles the repetition canine hostilities
in San Juan. That Marysville Ridge is rather
poking fuu at our ridge, and if he had not,
recently been so near losing that SIO,OOO and
those watches and jewels, besides actually
losing three bits, a pistol and the only evi
dence of iiis former beauty, we should say
something saucy, regardless of the whole
firm. As it is, “we feel to” pity him, and
are willing to forgive his do"- ged disposition
to-vards our town.
Judge Barbour sentenced Flamer to ten
years imprisonment in the State Prison, the
motion for a new trill having been overruled.
A stiy of proceedings for ten diys was grant

Journal.

Journal and Democrat arc both vouching for the
courage of the Nevada Rifles, in case they are
required by the Governor to fight the Northern
Indians, as it is expected they will be. The

an unparalleled scarcity of officials.... Mr. J . T.

C. W, Young, of Nevada, has a piece of the At

separately, which will probably exhaust a large
share of the time.... The same paper has the
following c “School CErffemt ation. —It is pro

in the county together at this place for the pur
pose of a grand joint celebration. We learn the
little ones are warmly enlisted in favor of the
