NORTH SAN JUAN, NEVADA CO, SATURDAY, JAN. 14, 1860. Site Ytyiltiutlic i’rrss. B. P. AVERY. EDITOR. American’ Art.— We mention it to observe with just pride that it is taking rank with the noblest anywhere. The painting and the peice of sculpture now attracting most admiration in the artistic and popular world, are Church’s “Heart of the Andes”—exhibit ing in London—and Palmer’s “White Cap tive,” on exhibition in New York. Church’s painting has been termed the greatest mod ern landscape, at least since Turner died; and England's first living painter has called its author a wonderful genius. Palmer is a home taught and nearly self taught Albany boy, yet critics pronounce his “White Cap tive” fatiltless and unrivalled. One saj’s of it—“ The subtleties of expression, in feature and form, in body and limb, as well as in face, are wonderful; and the effect, even upon the insensitive visitor, is impressive. Though it be nude form of a girl of twenty, there is neither shrinking in modesty nor the eager stare of vulgar immorality, in the sight. It neither offends the one, nor feeds the other. The perfection of form appeals to every latent love of the beautiful, and the vigor and depth of expression touches the germ of every spectator’s ideality.” The same writer says that the head, “which is the most splendid that ever sat on woman s shoulders, was copied exactly, with the al teration of a single feature, from that of a young lady of Western Massachusetts, cel ebrated for her beauty.” That even the sor did may take an interest in this piece of al most living marble, wo will add that it cost its owner, Hamilton Fisk, about $5,000. — Church’s painting has been bought by an other New Yorker for SIO,OO0 —for an Amer ican picture a price without precedent. Pacific Expositor. —The January number of this handsome religions serial, contains a sermon which was preached by the editor, Dr. Scott, on the progress and development of civil liberty and religions freedom. In this sermon, the opinion is advanced that the Reformers never asserted the true free dom and independence of the Christian church, hut relied upon the secular arm, and united with national politics. In these points they committed very grave errors, and utterly failed to comprehend their own doctrines, it will be seer from this passage that the Doctor himself is radically consis tent. Another article in this number of the Expositor, by a contributor, declares that Mrs. Stowe exhibits agrowing disposition to throw obloquy and reproach on, what are generally considered, the orthodox doctrines of the scriptures. . . « .» The rates of labor in San Francisco range from two to three dollars. Mechanics and artizans get from three to five dollars, and even more. A day’s wages in the mines is usually from three to four dollars. Accord ing to an exchange, able-bodied men are working in sonic parts of Eldorado county for twelve dollars per month and board.— Farm hands in the lower country get thirty dollars per month, and some of the farmers think that too much. New comers should settle on a piece of land in the hills, where wages keeps up and the poorest may become independent. Dr. Daniel Dustin, for many years a resi dent of Nevada county, and once a useful member of the Assembly, is now editing the True Republican, published at Sycamore, Dc Kalb count\’, 111. We have received the first number issued under his control, and observe in its editorials the same traits of courtesy, and earnestness, which made him here so many friends who will be glad to learn of his success. The Scientific American disproves the story, which has lately been extensively published, that one .las. G. Hendrickson, now dead, had invented a perpetual motion machine. The statement that such a machine ran ten months at the Patent office is not true. Tech nically there is no such thing possible as perpetual motion : relatively the idea is true, practical and has often been realized. Vesuvius is still in a state of eruption The lava stream is three miles long and has filled up a ravine 250 feet deep by 1,000 feet broad. The guides have molds by which they east heads, in hot lava, of famous Eu ropean and Italian personages. Three tons of Oregon apples formed part of a pack train load of fruit and confection ery which passed into La Porte, the lofty place of deep winter snows, for holiday con sumption. The La Porters live high. Brunei was worth when he died nearly half a million dollars, and Stephenson’s per sonal estate amounted to nearly two mil lions! Genius does not always go unre warded. The manufacture of paper from straw has now reached four and a half million pounds per annum. Several journals are printed upon such paper. THE FORMATION OP GOLD. A writer in Silliman't Journal contends that gold occurs in solution, as a terchloride, in certain earths and rocks, and by coming in contact with chemical agents, such as ron pyrites, or sulphuret of iron, is precipitated in crystals, in which form he has often seen it. Without saying whether it primarily occurs as a metal or not, he thus accounts for the solution. The decomposition of py rites produces sulphuric acid, which, in the presence of the never wanting chloride of sodium (nothing more than common salt, reader), and a higher oxide of manganese, may liberate small quantities of chlorine, the most powerful gold solvent known. The solution thus formed, passing down the veins, comes in contact with reducing agents, and the metal is again precipitated, fre quently in crystals or crystalline forms, and often upon gold already present. It is thought certain that such changes are con stantly going on, and in this way the stores of the precious metal may be ever increas ing. The same writer says that some spec imens of auriferous alhite (a while felspathic mineral and one of the constituents of some kinds of granite) from Calaveras county, California, show beautifully that, wherever there is a crystal of pyrites small crystals of gold are attached to it; demonstrating that the sulphate precipitated the gold previous to it? own reduction into pyrites. From this and similar facts he concludes, that gold is carried into the veins from adjoining rocks, and that the opinion which considers veins the source of the gold of alluvial and diluvial deposits and of the soil, is errone ous. This theory seems to us very plausible.— The remarkarkable association of gold and iron sulphurets in the quartz veins of this State, as well as in the newly discovered silver veins of Western Utah, and the exis tence of these same sulphurets in solution or crystals through much of our auriferous gravel beds, would suffice to suggest the idea of cause and effect and lead to such a theory in explanation as that presented above. Indeed, a similar theory has been more than once timidly advanced by Californians, and the unscientific miner has often noticed phe nomena which led him to adopt the crude notion that gold increases, or “grows.” The hypothesis that the gold of the alluvial and diluvial deposits was distributed through them from decomposed vein-rocks, has al ways seemed to us insufficient to account for the immense amount of that metal which is found scattered throughout the entire moun tainous region of California, sometimes without the least apparent connection with external causes. Generally the gold found in quartz exists either in the form of fine threads, in particles so minute as to be in visible, or in combination with sulphurets ! whereas the diluvial deposits reveal the metal in spangles or scales of such size that to believe they all proceeded from veins we must adopt the rather violent theory that gold occurred in the largest quantities and masses at the tops of veins, which were long since worn away. But we had no intention of discussing a question which has long employed the ablest scientific minds without their being able to arrive at a definite conclusion. It is prob able some of the intelligent quartz miners of Nevada county could present facts calcu lated to throw some light on the subject, and to correct or substantiate the views above expressed. Medical Infirmary and College for Wo men.—Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, a highly sci entific woman, who has been lecturing in Great Britain and America on “Medicine as a profession lor women,” is endeavoring now to establish in New York city a woman's hospital and college, which shall be the first institution in the world where women can obtain a thorough medical training and ex perience in the care of the sick. The nu cleus of this beneficent scheme is already under way, at No. 4, Blocker street, where 4,000 sick women and children have been prescribed for and nursed in the past year, by Miss Blackwell, her sister and another female doctor, and where also a regular course of instruction for nurses is organized. Among the trustees of this infirmary are Henry J. Raymond, Horace Greeley, Cbas. A. Dana, and Cyrus Field. Miss Blackwell is said to be the intimate friend and chosen counsellor of Florence Nightingale, though her superior in scientific attainments, and has made it “her life purpose to prosecute and consummate the great sanitary reform which the confirmed illness of Miss Night ingale has compelled her to relinquish.” All honor and success attend her. We notice going the rounds two articles with reference to the Jews—one declaring that they are not politicians, and the other setting forth their patriotism and bravery during the American revolution; both very creditable facts. Humboldt was in favor of the Christian Sabbath as a sanitary and humane arrange ment. Appetites of Spirits.— lt is now conceded by leading students of spiritual phenomena that the departed retain traces at least of their old habits and appetites. A spirit who on earth used rum and tobacco, craves them in the spheres, and seeks gratification of his appetites by the economical process of absorption from “mediums.” Death pro duces no marvelous and miraculous change in the soul, nor is that immortal essence at once gifted with infinite knowledge. It must ascend to perfection by degrees, of which death itself is one. Upon this hypothesis a writer in the Telegraph remarks, that the old notion of spirits accounts for the disgust many feel at the Hat and insipid nature of a large portion of the communications pro fessedly received from them. “If, instead of these communications coming from Spirits, they had come from mortals, nothing would have been thought of it ; for the ordinary conversation of persons of education, if put in print or written down, would appear flat and foolish. And as death makes about as little change in us as it does to lay off an overcoat, how can it be expected that spirits should in a few brief hours become translated into purified, refined and elevated beings ? How can a man who has for many years ha bituated himself to alcoholic stimulants, and passed months and even years in intoxica tion, spring at once into purity and wisdom?' This may account for the insipidity and er rors of ignorant and vicious spirits, but does not explain why Shakspeare, .Milton, Frank lin, Webster, and a host of other distin guished brightnesses, should glimmer on us so dully as they have. Their post-moitcm writings make living authors fancy that the worst thing they can do for their reputations is, to die. Independent Papers.— The leading New York papers are said to have done a good business for 1853. The Tribune profits are put as high as SIOO,OOO, and the value of the whole establishment at $400,000. The Herald has been equally as profitable, if not more so. Tiie Times ranks third. The Ev ening Post is probably not far behind. Bon ner’s Ledger has a steady circulation of 400,- 000, of which number 80,000 constitutes its mail list, the rest being sold by news men. Of a single number as many as 450,- 000 copies have been printed. The office is besieged on publication day by larger crowds than used to surround the San Francisco post office in early years. Senator Chase has our thanks for a copy of Lambert’s Pornographic chart of the Leg islature and officers of State. From it we learn that all our State officers are very young men. Gov. Latham is only 33, Lieut. Gov. Downey the same, Secretary Price 36, Controller Brooks 30, Treasurer Findley— his second term—only 28, Attorney General Williams—his second term also—3l, Sur veyor Higley 31, and Printer Bolts, 21 ! Of course the last statement is a funny typo graphical error, as the judge must be fifty at least. According to the chart ho came to California in 1847, at the tender age of seven years. The majority of the Legislature are young men and unmarried. The citizens of Carson City have adopted a provisional constitution for a municipal government, and intend to elect a board of ■Supervisors, justices of the peace, marshal and recorder. It is suggested by the Enter prise that the famous Comstock lead be called after the Pi-Ule Indians, and the town itself after their noted chief Win-ne-mocker. The last is a good suggestion. The name would always remind fast young men that wine a mocker is, and strong drink is raging. Has Pierce let that off yet? Here is one of the statistics of the Wal tham, Mass., watch manufactory which is worth remembering. A single pound of steel, costing but fifty cents, i- m mufactured into one hundred thousand sen. ws, won h are worth eleven hundred dollars. They tire so minute that a quantity of them piled to gether look like iron-filings. Daily prayer meetings have been held in all the San Francisco churches since the 9th inst. Cause—the depravity of man and as sembling of the Legislature. The last as sertion is not expected to be believed. A quaker spirit lately gave a mortal in Philadelphia this excellent advice: “Never hunt sunbeams before day break, nor shingle thy barn with lily, leaves.” The day fixed lor the me ting of the Na tional Democratic Convention, the 23d of April, is the birthday of Pres d nt Buch anan and Senator Douglas. The former will then be 69 and the latter 47. In the national gallery of the Patent Office there have been deposited for many years some solid • chunks” of California gold, which were among the first specimens tound at Sutter’s mill. H. C. Bennett, formerly of the Columbia Net m, now edits a new paper, the Times , in the same place, and promises to be inde pendent, industrious and useful. YOL. 2. NO. 21 Exports of Califoria Produce.— We hare compiled from San Francisco journals th 6 , following statement of the exports of Cali* j fornia produce from that port, for the year 1859. The exports were made to New York* MexicOj Sandwich Islands, Australia, Peru, British Columbia, New Granada, Chile, So ciety Islands, Manilla, Japan, Russia in Asia and America, England, France, Central Am erica and Johnston’s Islands, and indicate the beginning of a great commerce. The most prominent articles were the cereals—* Barley, 103,249 sacks, more than half of which went to New York: wheat, 139,532 bags, nearly all to Australia; Oats, 108,049 bags, mostly to the same country; The shipments of flour reached 20,998 barrels j of beans 13,976 bags; of hay, 3,389 bales; of bread. 3,541 casks, barrels and cases; of potatoes 3,206 bags: of salmon and other fish, 4,280 casks and barrels; mustard seed, the wild mustard we presume, 1,727 bags) bran, 2,473 bags; malt, 1,516 sacks; Aba lone shells, all to China, 390 bags; lime, 428 barrels; glauber salts, 150 tons; glue, 90 packages; furs, 8 packages; skins, 975 bales; lades. 151,304, beside several bundles) I leather, 128 packages; horns, 19,274; tal* i low. 1,384 casks and barrels; wool, 10,573 j bales; lumber, 4,606,396 feet, 1,294 thou* ! sand shingles, and a quantity of small staff I such as laths and pickets; brandy, 14 quar ; ter casks; wine, 23 casks, 20 kegs, 347 cases, j and 47 packages; quicksilver, 3,399 flasks. I Bayard Taylor's first journey was made i at the age of eighteen, from a small town I in Pennsylvania to New York and the Catt -1 skill mountains, mostly afoot, on a cash ! capital of fifteen dollars—the savings of one year. He got back with nine cents in his pocket and a colossal cold in his head.—• While sitting on the rocks at Cauterskill Falls, be confesses to writing some lines of 1 diluted poetry on a bit of drawing paper, which fell out of his pocket afterwards as he subsequently discovered, to his great re* gret. Here are his own words for the rest of the incident: “Fortune, however, is kinder towards bad poetry than good The lines were found by a lady, some weeks later, and restored to me through the columns of the New York Tribune. I have lost better poems since, and nobody picks them out of the dust.” It is in the power of the great landhold ers of California to add much to its wealth and attractiveness, and to the happiness of its people. By judicious management the vast estates may be cultivated or mined in such a manner as to enrich the owner and adorn the State. It is to be hoped that they will avoid the oonoxions system of leasing, which has been the source of many and se rious evils in other Slates, to the proprietor, the occupant and the community at large.— Observer. The project of dividing Sierra county is warmly discussed. The Downicville papers deny the inaccessibility argument, nnd the Democrat observes : Divided, neither county would have tax able property to yield a revenue equal to the current expenses of county government; much less pay anything on the existing debt. A cotemporary takes to task a rhymster for saying “to-morrow is the commencement of another year,” informing him that “no thing is until it is.” The metaphysicians, some of them, say differently—that what ever is to he, is. Colt, the revolver maker, ha 3 completed his invention of a revolving shotgun. It is a five shooter and uses cartridges impervi ous to water and dampness. This may be considered one of the most effective of wea pons and the most complete of sporting guns. — A pleasant anecdote is related of the de ceased Robert Stevenson. In a professional t ilk wi h Brunei, the latter expressed great dissatisfaction with the treatment received from his contractors. Stephenson answer ing that Brunei suspected peofde too much, the latter engineer replied, “I suspect all men to be rogues till I find thorn to be hon est men.” ‘For ray part,” returned Ste phenson, “I take all men to he honest till f find them to be rogues.” “Ah I then, we never shall agree,” quoth Brunei. “Never,” said Stephenson. Dr. Livingstone finds himself unable to prosecute his African explorations without i more powerful steamer than the fragile one hitherto employed oti the Zambesi, and has appealed to friends in England for as sistance. — All the Auburn, Grass Valley and Nevada papers are publishing vigorous editorials in favor of a railroad. That’s right; rail on, brothers. A Temperance Society, called the “Josh nay,” has been organized up North. The constitute n expressly provides that no mem ber .'hall use as a beverage, spirituous or malt liquors, wine or cider,” unless he it treated! One hundred and fifty pairs of blankets are now turned out daily at Turner’s woolen factory, San Francisco. The enterprise is already a source of profit, and gives em ployment to eighty operatives.
