Adulterating Native Wises.—The Alta reports un on dit that certain San Francis cans arc engaged in adulterating or counter feiting California wines. Why, bless its soul, that thing has been practiced so long that throughout the interior consumers are afraid to purchase what purports to be na tive wine, lest they may drink only some sour stuff that never was near a vineyard. We have reason to believe that California wine, so called, is manufactured in other portions of the Slate where a grape never grew. We have seen packages of labels, similar to those put upon bottles of the genuine article, go ing through country post offices directed to wholesale liquor vendors, and thought the fact a pretty strong proof that counterfeiting native wines is not peculiar to San Francisco. There should certainly be an effort made to prevent by legislation a fraud which already greatly injures a most important industrial element. Apart from the importnne to health and morality of having pure and cheap wines of home manufacture, it is essential for the reputation and value of them for ex portation that this counterfeiting should be, if possible, immediately checked. Those guilty of it arc no better than the counter feiters of coin, and actually do more mis chief. Their offense should incur as severe a penalty. A Copper Slug.— lfarjwr's Magazine for February contains an engraving of an early Roman copper coin, still exfant in a British collection, which measures about six by four indies superficially and three-eighths of an inch in thickness, and weighs a little less than five pounds avoirdupois. This nice lit tle pocket piece is a specimen of the earliest known coinage of Italy, and probably dates from B. C. 500 to B. C GOO. It bears on its face a tolerably faithful representation of au ox, and serves to illustrate the theory that the first valuation of metal became fixed with regard to the value of sheep and oxen. The money weight of the Egyptians and As syrians was in the shape of a lamb, and our word pecuniary is derived from the Latin word for money, pecunia , which in turn is derived from pecus, a Hock of sheep or cattle. Wc hope many of our California mountain eers will eventually discover that sheep are still representatives of wealth. Col. E. D. Baker, the most eloquent Cali fornian, is a Californian no longer. lie sailed on Friday last for Oregon, where he intends to abide permanently, if that Repub lic is more grateful than this. A number of his friends accompanied him to the steamer, presented him with an elegant gold chro nometer watch, made and heard parting speeches, and sent him off with the echoes of nine rousing cheers ringing in his head. The last speech made by tlie warrior-advo* cate was in the case of Dr. Chase, charged with adulterating acids belonging to the S. F. Mint. In this speech, among many willy and handsome things the Colonel said ; “He had long known that the tears of women could extract silver from his pocket, but Dr. Raymond bad said you could extract silver from a woman’s tears. Nature was full of such curious dispositions of her stores. Coal was a reservoir of sunbeams. There was chlorine in every tear, in the coolest drop of water that ever leaped from the rocks.” English Criticism.—Washington Irving's death has elicited from the press of Great Britain and the continent of Europe almost universal words of genial praise and sincere regret. One journal, however, the Illustrated London Mews, views him but as a mere imi tator. It says? “In English literature—much as he has delighted and instructed us—his name must be put in a low compartment, and his statue in an obscure niche in the temple of fame. He was indeed, a very pleasant writer of es says, after the British essayists, and rendered good service to his country by writing in a good style, using on all occasions the best word in the best place.” The journal which speaks so disparagingly of our beloved Irving shows its ignorance of his writings and its incompctency to sit in criticism over them, by alluding to his Knickerbocker History as a veritable histor ical work, which has elected its author “a historian fit to rank with Robertson and Prescott”! The same intelligent journal says that Helper's “Impending Crisis” is a book relating to the Harper's Ferry insurrection 1 We learn from the Marysville Express that a good article of Irish whiskey is manufac tured tn that city. This reminds us of a circumstance that happened in North San Juan. One of our citizens enquired at a liquor store kept by a crafty old German for a certain individual w hom he wished to see, aud was thus directed : “He isb back mit mine son maltin’ Oregon cider 1” The cost ot keeping each patient in the Insane Asylum is nearly S2OO per annum.— The cost of keeping people out of it is much greater. CALIFORNIA BEGGING. Rev. S. B. Bell, a very eloquent and wor thy divine, who has figured conspicuously in our Legislature and before our agricul tural and literary societies, is now lecturing to the people of the Atlantic States Upton California, and is doing her the noblfest ser vice by his glowing, attractive pictures of her scenery, her resources, her productions, her citizens and her progress. But in his laudable eagerness to secure aid for the CaU ifornia College he conveyed, In a recent lec ture before the “Society for the Promotion of Collegiate and Theological Education at the West,” the injurious impression that this State is indiffennt towards the cause of ed ucation, and lias done but little for its pro motion. lie used language calculated to mrtke our eastern kindted suppose that the educational welfare of the first Pacific State depends upon the success of the college for which he is laboring with such commend able and effective zeal; More than this, he broadly affirmed that, in the matter of edu cation, Jesuitism, thus for, has control of our State, and threatens to hold it forever in thrall, ‘'though the stars and stripes float over it, and Protestantism has begun to en lighten it.” This is Very similar to a plea made before the same society, more than a year ago, by Rev. T. Dwight Hunt, in favor of the University of the Pacific, if \vc re member rightly. He exhibited the same dread of Catholic or Jesuit influence, and said that what California is to be in the fu ture, depended almost wholly on the assist ance rendered at the east to her collegiate institutions ; but lie thought aid was jwrtic xdarhj needed, because the formation and ex istence of churches on the Pacific coast must depend upon the University. Mr. Bell is more politic than Mr. Hunt, but the secret motives of both gentlemen are identical.— Neither is afraid that the proud, the wealthy State of California will neglect to educate her children; they are chiefly concerned lest the task of educating them shall be wholly taken from the bands of sectarians. They desire schooling for the people, for no plan of instruction is satisfactory to clergymen which does not build up the power of their church and weaken that of their en emies. As we have said before, we do not specially deprecate the founding of sectarian colleges; let those patronize them who are led by their convictions to do so; but every Californian must regret to see his adopted Stale placed abroad in the degrading posi tion of a needy suppliant—a strong-limbed giant, yet begging at eastern doors for as sistance. Lot us preserve our independence, and rely for that improvement which we all desire upon our own exertions and our own abundant resources. Whatever is bad iu Catholicism, or in Protestantism either, for that matter, the people are sufficiently pro tected against by the character of their po litical institutions and by their supreme love of liberty. Such language as we have alluded to and partly quoted, does great injustice to Cali fornia, and may do greater injury. If a be lief is generated st the eaet that we make meager provision,- or none at all, for the mental training of the young, thousands of families would be determined against emi grating hither, and the accession to our pop ulation of the element it most needs would thus be much retarded. It is true, we have not done all for education that should have been done ; but considering the disadvan tages of our position, in a new country, sur rounded by influences Unfavorable to any fixed public policy, and with a heterogeneous and roving population, we have come as near a thorough performance of our duty as was possible. Public schools have been es tablished and maintained in every district where needed, and if they have not been al-» ways well attended the blame rests with pa rents and guardians, not with the State.— In the most populous districts schools of a high grade have been established, and many private academies multiply the facilities for acquiriug knowledge. It only remains for the State to complete its duty by properly disposing of the magnificent fund in its pos session, arranging for the establishment of at least one high school in each county, and crowning the whole system with a free col lege of the amplest capacity and widest scope. This will he done, and speedily, for we have now the will, and Congress has mu nificently endowed us with the means. The present Legislature should consider the per fection of our school system the most mo mentous business of the session, and hasten to relieve theologians of the odious neces sity of begging for us at the Bast. Catifohxia Patexts. —Win. Banham, of San Francisco, has secured a patent for an improvement in machines for pulverizing quartz; Lucius Edd leblute, of Garden Val ley, one for an improve d amalgamator which he claims prevents the washing out of quick ilver; and Low k Smith, of North Sau Juan, one for an improvement in valv chests for hydraulic mining. The last patent is already extensively manufactured and used in Nevada county, and is familiarly known as Low’s Distributor. VOL. 2. M 2? Callfornla PckcH.—The Nevada Journal, alluding to our account of the Chihdman whd hung liimself because he waS unable to pay a debt of §SOO, sayS: “What a moral is here ! If every individual was as sensitive about his obligations as this Chinaman the woods would hang as thick as blackberries with defunct debtors;” According to thfc Sierra Democrat “the best ‘effects’ a man can leave with his heir arethd eflbcts of a good example.” The same papet applies the term of “fastidiols” to those peo ple who damagfe their health by fitting them selves tb appatel of “the mOde ” Not con tent with these smartnesses, Forbes thus comments upon the Assembly bill which provides for the afrest and imprisonment of the German hurdy-gurdy girls: “It is a queer precat! lion, anyhow—keeping girls Virtuous by requiring them to be ‘confined’ in jail;” llev. H. B; Sheldon, of Downlevllle, says the “Citizen”, “has been requested to clear up any doubts which may be entertained ot the capacity of the Ark to preserve, during the deluge, the family of Noah, and the spe cies of all living things that were previously upon the earth.” e know that California preachers are expected to dispense the gos pel, minister to the sorrowing and suffering,’ and support their own families on nothing, or nest to it : but we submit that the above is asking of Pro. Shelddn entirely too much, and it will not be unchristian if he refuses to undertake such a herculean task. According to the Alta , the construction of the California Central Uailrdad is progress ing with such rapidity that the completion of the line to Lincoln, eighteen miles north of Folsom, by the Ist of June, may be con sidered a fixed fact. The track is already laid for a distance of three miles north of Folsom, and on the 15th inst., an engine and train of oafs passed oter tile new sus pension bridge at the latter place; for the' first time. The excavating and grading Is already completed as far as Lincoln, and the work of laying down the track is progress ing finely. Col. Charles L. Wilson, under whose superintendence the road has beeri constructed thus far, is now on his way tb the Atlantic States for the purpose of pur chasing material for the completion of the line to Marysville. m According (0 the Albany, N. V. Statesman, Geo. W. Kendall, the famous editor of the N. O. Picayune, who is now the owner of thousands of acres of 'texas land and a hun dred thousand head of stock, made his first pecuniary capital, Whcrl a yotrng journey man printer in New York, on a game of poker He played the game tit the Astof House twenty-three years rigO, on the small sum of §ls, part of that borrowed, won §TOO, quit New York and Greeley, for whoml he was working, nest day, went to New Or leans and started the Picayune: It is seldom that poker leads to such virtuous dnd happy results. It dftener stirs up the fires of afl unholy passion which almost certainly con sumes its Victim. 0. P. Sarle delivered before the Sons of Temperance of Yankee Jims a clever lecture' on the power of knowledge, taking for his text that line which is attributed to Bacori but which he did not Utter—“knowledge is Power.'' The lecturer calculated that at the’ present ratio of increase in the speed at Which man travels by the aid of machinery,- we shall be able to travel at the rate of 900 miles an honr 150 years befnee, and make the circuit of the globe in 24 hours I The splendid granite quarries of Polsom, extending for miles along the American riv er, and the mere oUt-croppings of which cannot be exhausted for centuries/are justly regarded by Mooney’s Prpress as the sonree' of immense future wealth. When those' palaces are built Which Bayard Taylor pre dicts will line the shores of Cafquinez straits and make it another Bosphorus, Fol* som granite will be there to see. A man named Farrell picked up a stick a( phosphorus near Stockton, and put it in bis pocket, thinking it to be candy, and intend ■ ing to give it to a child. The heat of bis body soon inflamed it, his clothes caught ; fire and he was burned so badly that his life : is despaired of. Wash. fV’right of the San Joaquin Repub \ lican, has achieved a reputation for piety in the breast of some country woman—a spin ster we hope—w ho fervently says to him : | “Go on and prosperj we wish you good luck in the name of the Lord.” It is mentioned as a proof of the power of the press that an article in the London Timei brought ,£9,090 to a charitable asylum. , The Mountain Democrat most be thinking of its latter end, for it has a long leader headed “The Future.” Six Chinamen have been convicted of fcil-» ling one in Calaveras county. They will all swing. That's a pretty high valuation ofCe i lestial life.
