SIGN OF THE BIG WHITE PITCHER, Marysville. NORTH SAN JUAN, NEVADA CO, SATURDAY, JAN. 21, 1860. She b. P. AVERY. EDITOR. President’* Message.— The annual mes sage of President Buchanan was submitted te Oongress l>ec. 2?tb, altWgb <tfce Hcrcse 'tvas not yet 'organized. It readied Frre bawgh’s Percy, the OftteWßost telegraphic sftafcfon of this State, on the evening of.tlie 45fh in St., making the trans-continental trip in tire unprecedented time of fifteen days and three awd a quarter hours. It was im mediately telegraphed to the Sacramento papers, and appeared in full in the Union of fbe ‘Kith, It is a respectable and temperate document, not very lengthy, and gives a sat isfactory account of the condition of the country and our relations with foreign pow ers. The people are warned, in a wanner quite patriarchal and evidently sincere, to avoid the exciting and dangerous agitation of a delicate subject, and as a corollary to this warning the re-opening of the slave trade Is deprecated as every way impolitic and unrighteous. Previous suggestions for die acquisition of Cuba are renewed, as also one in favor of intervention in Mexican af fairs, and that the President be authorized to employ the naval forces at his command for the protection of American life and prop erty on the Isthmus transit routes. The building of p. Pacific railroad is advocated as a measure of national necessity, as here tofore. The difficulties entailed upon gov ernment by the neglect of the last Congress to make needful appropriations are detailed, and a succinct account given of the national finances. The total expenses for the last fiscalycar were §83,751,511 57, We hare frequently observed the prone oess of visitors to a now country to under rate the extent and value of its arable soil. California was a case in point, and many to day pronounce Western Utah nothing but a desert. The Governor of Nebraska Terri tory observes in his annual message that similar disparaging remarks have neon made of that country, which is budding, blooming and fructifying in refutation of the slander continually. The soil bears every variety of grain, fruit and vegetable common to the temperate climates, and the land cncc ‘‘cov ered with short buffalo grass, presenting the appearance of a poor and unproductive soil,” is now luxuriant with the lofty grass of the Francs, which, even at less than full growth, reaches to the horses bridles. The Gov ernor says the Territory now produces more than it consumes. The world is continually coming back to its old disputes. Henry Ward Beecher is said to entertain the heterodox notion that Christ was not God and man united, but only God in a human body; and for this he is now being hauled over the coals of orthodox wrath. vVe are reminded of the famous dis pute which divided the Christian church in the fourth century, when the Homoiousians maintained that although the Son was es sentially like the Father he was not the same, while their opponents the Homoousians as serted that Father and Son were the same. Thus the difference of only one character between two Greek names, separated those who, like some modern believers, were more concerned about the letter than the spirit of the word. “Strange sucli a difference there should he ’Twixt tweed la-Uum and tweedle-dee.” The Scientific American has entered on the second volume of its new series. This splendid publication has had many imitators, which have sought to rival it in the favor of mechanics and others taking an interest in the material progress of our country; but it still stands unrivalled, and after a useful ca reer of fourteen years presents a more hand some, enterprising and vigorous appearance than ever. We do not see how any intelli gent mechanic can do without it, especially when we remember that the price is only two dollars. For an octavo weekly of six teen pages, profusely and always elegantly illustrated, this is very cheap. Independent. — A little squatty specimen of a man at Mokelumne Hill, in search of the hoepital swore because it was out of town, said he was affected with the heart disease, and in fact was “sick all over;” but he’d be d—d if he was going to walk five or six miles to throw his patronage into any such institution as the Calaveras county hospital. So says the Chronicle. A San Francisco correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune informs that journal that the name “Sierra Nevada” is singular, and that even Horace Greeley has no right to make it plural, as he does in one of his letters, writing it “Sierra Nevada's." This is a re proof that hundreds of our own people should heed. That excellent typographic serial, the Printer , says that there are in London 596 book ami job printing offices, and 96 news paper office?. MINING IMPROVEMENTS, There is no -originality with man; bis proudest achievements arc but elaborations of hints kindly extended to him by Nature. In art, science and mechanics, he is alike her entire debtor. Even in the sordid and not abstractly useful or noble pursuit of gold seokrag-, she is the sole instructor. The ex perience of California miners has ledthemto observe and imitate ber, and to assimilate their gold-saving processes more and more closely to hers. At the beginning the “cra dle” and the “tom” were efforts towards an imitation, which was more nearly attained when the “ground sluice” and “ hydraulic " process were subsequently employed. The last mentioned mode tears down and washes off the auriferous earth with all the power and effect of natural forces directed by reas on; while the blocks and riffles lining the sluice-boxes through which thedissolVed dirt is conveyed, are only cunning substitutes for the gravel beds of natural water courses.— These same gravel beds arc now more close ly imitated by lining the bottoms with cobble-stones, lapped one over another in regular layers, and inclining down stream. This idea was crudely adopted several years ago, rocks being piled irregularly in the sluices and there allowed to remain for an indefinite time. The plan now is so system atized as to be really valuable. Every sec tion of sluice, or each box fourteen feet long, is regularly paved as above described, the stones held firmly down by nailing strips of board five and a half inches wide on each side of the box, and wedging a cross-piece under these strips at the end of each box.— As soon as dirt and water have been allowed to flow over this gravel bottom, it becomes immovable, ns though set in mortar. The paving can be rapidly accomplished, one man being able to finish in n day twenty-five box es fourteen feet long and thirty inches wide, each. The material lies at hand in nearly every mining claim, and costs nothing but the labor of appropriation and selection. The advantages of rock-slniccs may bo briefly stated. Those who have had long experience with them assert positively that they save more gold than any other sluices in use, and a kind of gold which no other sluices save at all. Mr. Welch, of Indian Hill, Sierra county, who has 2,300 feet of rock-sluice leading from bis claims, declares that he saves twenty per cent, more gold than he ever did before out of the same dirt. He has thoroughly tested the matter by hav ing alternate sections of rock and block sluice, and invariably obtained moat gold from the former. He, as well as others, has observed that the rock-sluices save the most fine gold, the almost palpable powder of the precious metal, which is generally lost. For the same reason that more gold is saved, less quicksilver is lost. The rock-sluices also effect a great economy of lumber. All other sluices are lined with blocks of wood about three inches thick, the cost of which, for each section fourteen feet long and thirty inches wide, is four or five dollars. These blocks have to be frcquantly renewed, owing to the great friction of rocks, earth and water rushing over them. In some instances they will not outlasttwcnty days ofwashing. This was the case in the claims of Mr. Welch, where the saving effected by discarding blocks amounts to a very large sum. In bis 2,300 feet of sluice there arc, say 164 boxes, that would require new blocks every twenty days; in three hundred days each box would cost, at four dollars for every new lining,§6o; and the expense of the entire sluice for the same period would be $9,840. In the Ken tucky claims, at Sweetland—where may be seen a very handsome specimen of rock sluice—the saving on blocks fof sixteen boxes, at four dollars eacb,amonnts to about $64 every forty days that washing is done Here, then, without reference to the superi ority of rock bottoms as a direct gold-saver, is effected an economy that would alone render many unprofitable claims sources of income to their owners. One more recom mendation of rock-sluices is found in the fact that they offer fewer facilities for rob bery. Thieves can help themselves in block sluices by simply scooping up the amalgam as it lies in narrow crevices between the blocks; but here it is buried in sand among stones hard to remove and needing to be washed. Rock-sluices nreconstructei upon a grade of from fourteen to sixteen inches for every fourteen feet, the heaviest dirt, or that which flows with least freedom, requiring the most grade. They cannot ordinarily belaid through tunnels, because these have to be run on as light a grade as possible—say one inch to the foot—and block-sluices are used in them as offering the least impediment to the flow of rocks and dirt. Their prime value is to receive the “tailings” at the month of t m nels, and convey them for long distances down hill sides. The boxes are usually thirty inches deep and thirty inches wide, a greater width being obtained sometimes by constructing parallel lengths with a low partition. Flat, oval-shaped rocks, the size of a man’s hand, only thicker, and as hard as possible, are selected for the bottoms.— When the miner wishes to clean np, say af ter washing ten or twenty days, tbe stones are loosened with a pick, washed off by al lowing ten or twenty inches of water to flow through them, and then laid ont until the box* • are washed down and cleaned of their golden gatherings. The whole process is simple, economical, and worthy of trial by every miner. Two Inaugurations in One Week. —On Saturday last, the 14th inst., Milton S. La tham, the United States Senator elect, who had been inaugurated Governor of Califor nia the previous Monday, resigned the latter position, and Lieut. Governor Downey was duly inaugurated as his successor. The new executive made* brrefand modest address, and intimated that ire should follow the line of policy indicated by Latham. The latter sails for Washington on the sth of February. The State has hardly yet recovered from the surprise of his election, and some of the Journals of his party which had worked in the interest of other geutlemeH for the same position, did not submit Democratically until after a little sorc-hcaded growling. This class say Latham was bound in honor to servo out his gubernatorial term, but others consider tbe tempting nature of the offer made him by the famous fifty-six as beyond tbe power of ambition to refuse, and forgive him on that score. Politic*! outsiders are generally satisfied, and in the fact that our young Senator is a thorough Californian, whose name and fortune are identified with the State, discern much hope for the future. The Hesperian. —The number (or January is excellent. It contains a lithograph of the Salses, or Mud Volcanoes of the Colorado desert, of which curious objects the following extract from the description by Dr. Veatch, will give a partial idea: “ The steam jets of the Salses issue from conical mounds of mud, varying from three to twelve feet in bight, the sides presenting various angles, some being sharp and slender cones, others dome-shaped mounds that seemed to have spread and flattened out with their own weight, upon the discontinuance of the action that formed them. Out of Some of the cones the steam rustics in a continu ous stream, with a roaring or whizzing sound, as the orifices vary in diameter or the jets differ in velocity. In others the action is intermittent, and each recurring rush of steam is accompanied by a discharge of hot mud, masses of which are thrown sometime* to the bight of a hundred feet.” The second illustration in the Hesperian represents a flowering plant from Cedros Is land, which deserves its poetical name of the “Hamming Bird’s Dinner Horn.” Among the literary contents is a forcibly written argu ment in favor of selling the mineral lands, from the pen of Jno. S. Ilittcl. The views of the writer on this subject have been made known to the public heretofore through the columns of the Sacramento Union , and are well worthy presentation in a more condensed form. The subject is an important one; not to be dismissed with a sneer, but seriously considered. The Professor’s Story. —The readers of the Atlantic Monthly will be glad to know that Dr. Holmes will contribute to the new volume of that brilliant periodical a romance called “The Professors Story.” The Doctor has been growing more episodical and dra matic ever since his first table talk, when he dealt only in didacticisms, witticisms, and clever hits at character, stopping now and then to pick up some “unconsidered trifle” of thought and set it in a bran new simile borrowed from science. His first charming episode was that of the “school marm”; then the more pathetic one of the old tutor, whose death scene is an unforgettable piece of lit erature, and lately that of poor “Sculpin.’’ All through the last, which is a straggling tale of itself, wc thought the writer’s brain was drifting towards a systematic narrative. The progress of an author’s purpose from the first indefinite suggestion to the rounded form of a palpably defined plan, was never more finely displayed. Campbell’s cash gains from his poem of the “Pleasures of Hope” amounted to more than $22,000. Many a poor devil of an ed itor drudges a whole life time for less than one-twentieth of that, if he gets anything. There is a great deal of bosh got off about the sorrows of genius, but it is the humble workers for man’s advancement who suffer most from neglect and meanness, though they complain least. According to tbe game law, any person destroying elk, deer and antelope, between the first day of the year and the first day of July, is liable to prosecution, and a fine of $25 for each offense. The law also prohibits the killing of ducks, geese, quails, etc., be tween the first of March and the fifteenth of September. Robert Stephenson died leaving no child but George Stephenson, who has himself died childless, so that the great family of mechanical engineers has become extinct, adding one more to the large number of em inent names left without heritors.
