P, AVEBY, Editor. Another Useful Invention. —Mr. Joseph L. Chadwick, of this place, has invented a self-adjusting elbow for all kinds of water or steam pipes, and is about to apply for a patent on the same. It consists of one or more double-incline planes, or sections, each plane having an angle of 11J degrees on each side, making 22J degrees, adjustable to sitfgle-incJirie'iJbctidbs squared afonp end for connection with the main pipe. T'hese sections are joined by cast iron flanges.— This elbow can be made perfectly straight or set at any qngle, up to forty-five degrees, by simply revolving the double-inclines, and consequently the direction of any pipe te which it may'be attached can be changed at pleasure with little expense and in a short time. As iron pipe is now coming into ex tensive use for conveying water from canals and flu Wes to mining claims, this elbow will prove vastly convenient and economical for that use alone. The direction of the pipe frequently has to be changed in the diggings, and when made solid, as now, such change involves much cost and de.ay. If Mr. Chad wick has not been anticipated in his inven tion, the self-adjusting elbow will prove a valuable patent. Hutching’s Magazine.— The May number of this purely Californian periodical contains illustrated mention of the mammoth trees of Mariposa and Fresno ; a continuation of Dr. Kcllog’s sketches of native wild flowers ; an account of the S. F. Mercantile Library) which contains 12,000 volumes; and a cu rious translation from the Spanish records of the Mission of San Carlos del Carmclo, describing the death and burial of Father Junipero Serra, founder of the Missions of California, who established the first Mission, that of San Diego, in 1770, and after spend ing fourteen years in founding others and in confirming 56,307 souls, died tranquilly at the age of nearly seventy-one years, having worn the religions habit more than fifty three years. The editor r.eed not to have made the apology he does foT publishing the quaint memorial of this good old priest, written fey Friar Franco Palou. Nobody will suspect the magazine of being sectarian.— Another article begins a scries of historical notes on the Indians of Sonora and Califor nia, based upon the memorials of Father Kino, or Kuhn, a Jesuit missionary to this coast at the close of the 17th century. Such articles give Hatching's Magazine rare interest and permanent value. Ponv Gazette—Such is the appropriate name of a newspaper novelty in Nevada, the first number of which we have received, published by Lammoa, Palmer & Co. It is printed on one side of a sheet half the size of the Press, and is to be issued weekly.— Terms 75 cts. per month. §2 per quarter or 36 cts. for single copies. Its object is thus smartly announced : It is to publish a NEWSPAPER, a journal which, like a Quaker at a class-meeting, shall only speak when it has something to say. It will be issued immediately upon the arrival of each Pony Express, and will con tain the news telegraphed to tts from Carson City, and also all matters of general interest ■occurring throughout the State, and the lo cal matters of this vicinity. In all cases we shall content ourselves with the publication of the facts, and shall leave the reader to comment for himself. Of the perpetuity of the Pope’s temporal or Ileenan’s physical powers we know nothing, but if either the Spiritual Father or the Pugilistic Boy should get into chancery, we will will apprise our patrons of the fact. A recent issue of the Alta speaks of seeing a newspaper letter written from the Washoe diggings Oct. 22d, 1859, and “ containing the news which probably gave the first im petus to the present silver fever.” The last remark is absurdly wrong. The first printed account of the silver mines was an editorial in the Nevada Journal , published as early as July 6th. The information was direct and reliable and produced an immediate excite ment in this county, which soon spread to Sierra county. In August the Hydraulic Press had a special correspondent In West ern Utah, and published the first elaborate description of the mines and of the country generally. In October, before the above letter was written, we had made a personal visit to the Eastern Slope, and published further details concerning it k The San Francisco folks did not seem to believe there was any silver in Utah at all, until the ofe reached their city by the tart load. Mr. Weil, of Block & Furth’s, presented us with an oblong silver coin of Japanese origin. It is seven-eighths of an inch long and five-eighths wide, stamped on each side with a square containing Japanese characters and bordered with stars or asterisks; and is a little thicker than an American half dollar. It is composed of 998 parts Silver and two parts gold, and is worth lorty-five cents. In the Star of the Pacific is published a call for a State convention of the friends of Uni rersalibtn, to be held at Benicia on the Istb, l«th and !Tth days of June. CHANCE j?6B A FORTUNE. That is what everybody in California is looking for, but few there are who prosecute the search in a legitimate way. The major ity seek the metallic representative of wealth. They follow the painful and precarious occu pation of mining, incited and sustained by the hdpe of finding a fortune in mass, as it Were, and thereafter purchasing that impos sible thing, happitless in indolence. Cush ions of ease arc in the perspective of every gold hutfter s cheating visions. "Wealth in the concrete is what he is after, and such abstractions as manufacturing articles df use and raising from the soil the food staples of man, are ignored as foreign to the grand object. The same amount of toil that nine tenths of our miners waste in the diggings, if applied to any legitimate pursuit and sec onded by economy, would make theth inde pendent. But the day has not yet come when they can see this, and consequently the hint tve are going to drop will gain no attention from them. Somewhere, however, WC hope is a sensible fellotv Upon whose mind it may fall like a seed and gCrfhihafe into fruitful purpose All this word pother is simply introductory to this question : Why does not sdftte enterprising person establish a dairy in this vicinity? Here is a large population, consuming an immense quantity of butter and cheese, nearly all of which is cither imported or brought from the lower country, when it might better be raised at home, saving us the necessity of oppressing our stomachs with indigestible rancidity, and going to increase our local resources.— It has been urged that the mountains are not adapted to the profitable raising of dairy products, but there is no proof of this, while it is known there are several mountain dai ries of rare excellence which have proved remunerative, and will hereafter be more so. Good Tresh butter will always command a preference. The scantiness of pasturage at the close of summer is not a serious objec tion, because good feed for eotvs 'Can be in sured by sowing the slopes irrigated by min ing ditches with clover, alfalfa or al-farea, and raising ■quantities Of carrots and sugar beets, which yield at the Tate of from twenty to fifty tons per acre. Land for this purpose can be obtained in abundance for the mere fencing, free from the terrible uncertainties of Spanish grants, and admirably adapted to all kinds of fruit culture, which could be; profitably pursued in connection with the dairy business. Let some one who is satis fied to make a home in these glorious hills, where the climate is ever balmy, where Sow ers bloom every month in the year, and man and beast attain alike the highest degree of health and phj’sicai development—we say, let some one thus satisfied aet upon our hint at some point adjoining each populous miu irig center, and prosperity and happiness will surely flow to him. But let him be cer tain to make the experiment with good stock. Poor cows are profitable nowhere. For the mountains cither a plkre or mixed breed of Devonshire cows is considered the best, and as pure stock of this breed can now be pro cured iu the State the dairyman should not fail to have it, either to increase in its purity or for the purpose of crossing. The advan tages of the Devons are thus enumerated by an exchange: They are very small-boned and are re markable for their docility and gentleness. They will live arid thrive on scanty farej and keep fat in pastures where the Durhams and Ayrshires would pine and starve. The milk of the cows is of the richest quality, though not so large in quantity as that of other breeds; blit froth a given pasture more but ter can be obtained, of a tine quality, if the Devon cows feed in it than if it is assigned to any other stock. So, though a Devon beef is smaller than many other kinds, yet the same amount of food, if fed out to Devons will give more fine fat beef than if fed to any other breeds of neat cattle. Hence it is that for simple profit the Devons are regarded as ahead of any others. Though small they are still very handsome—have line, clean limbs—are of a deep beautiful color, and are as mild and docile as lambs. For a family that desires a single cow to be a pet about the barn and yard, and to yield a good supply of milk for family uses, we should suppose that a Devon was the thing needed. At Yreka, says the Journal, whoever does not own an interest in a quartz lead is ex actly nobody, and is liable to be treated with silent contempt by his friends and perhaps snubbed by the ladies. Observing this, (you can say we speak from experience if you wish,) we went out last week and found a lead of our own, since which time we have had invitations to three parties, and six oyster sappers. On one occasion a man with a bulkhead of immaculate whiteness around his neck, actually ran across the street to shake hands with us.— Note to the reader — We can’t find the color in the specimens we brought in, and would not swedr that we found a lead at all, but it is all the same so long as We can make the good people believe that it is nil right, or will be when our mill comes up.

NO. | The Tenure of Claims is Silvebland. — Many persons who ■were in'California early in 1849 will remember an anecdote of Gov. Mason, which wag then current, to this ef fect: Some speculator had taken up a tract of mining ground, been dispossessed of it by actual workers, and went to the Governor to ascertain what must be done to perfect his title and recover the ground. To his in quiry how much ho could claim and how long, the sturdy official responded bluffly— “ The length of yotir pick handle, as long as you can bold it.” We are told that many claims in the silver regions are held in a similar manner, and the owner’s absence is the signal for “jumpers” to seize upon bis lead and hold it by the law of might. To prevent jumping, interests have sometimes been given to fighting characters, the famo of whose prowess was calculated to inspire a wholesortie respect. One instance of jump ing we are reliably told of, in which the claim was held by the “parties of the second ■part” by means of a fortification of rocks thrown bp for the purpose, and behind which they intrenched themselves with fire arms. The gentlemen who thus had to yield their prior rights are said to be citizens ot Nevada county. Between the white scoun drels and the Indians, we fear much violence and bloodshed will stain the first year’s his tory of the new territory. Mammoth Tree Groves.— 'll is not gener ally known that since 1855 three mammoth tree groves have been discovered in Califor nia in addition to the famous Calaveras grove. One of these, as we learn from Hut ching's Magazine is situated at the head waters of the South Fork of the Merced river, in Mariposa county, and consists of about six hundred trees, extending over an area of A mHe and a quarter. The most gigantic in dividual in this group was found prostrate and partly burnt. It was estimated to have been about four hundred and thirty feet in altitude and one hundred and twenty feet in circumference. Several are mentioned that have a circumference of frotn sixty to ninety feet and a probable bight of from two to three hundred feet. Another grove is dis tant from this one about six miles, in Frezno county ; and about twelve miles east of the Frezno grove, at the head waters of the San Joaquin river, exists a much larger group. All these trees are precisely of the same ge nus and Variety as those of Calaveras. When will some one give us an adequate descrip tion of these wonders ? An Entranced Woman Speaks. —Miss Mun son has been lecturing atNevada in the trance 6n man as anim&l and spirit, and afforded Bro. Waite an opportunity for writing a very bold and philosophical article. Speaking of her the Journal says, that “for the novelty of the doctrines, clear, lucid manner in which they were expressed, and the wonder ful adaptation of language to the subject,” the lectures were unsurpassed. In another place the Journal remarks as follows : Any event which shall provoke discussion is not without benefit to the human mind. The novelty of the entertainment afforded by Miss Munson attracts an audience, induce? thdught and must redound to the advantage of the public, whatever may be said of the doctrines advanced or the manner in which they are taught. The bigoted and intolerant will listen to no new creed, nor countenance anything out of the old beaten track in which their fathers started them on the journey of life. The man of liberalized ideas will pro nounce nothing a humbug which comes fairly endorsed, until after investigation. Dr. J. T. Peck contributes some vigorous articles to the Christian Advocate under the wide-awake title of “The Live World”. The last one describes the N. Y. Methodist Book Cdhcefn, which turns oat from twelve to fifteen bound books every minute of the year, besides publishing nearly 200,000 re ligious papers annually and innumerable tracts and pamphlets. In the Stockton Republican we find an ac count of a pack train which has been fitted out hi that city by Capt. Lord, commissary of the English Commission to run the boun dary line between the United States and the British Possessions. It has proceeded to Yreka, where it will join the main expedition. From thence the whole parly will proceed Overlarid to the scene of their operations. The Alla boasts that it has expended 514,000 for telegraphic dispatches since the first of the year, but the Call says in reply— “ Deduct what the Alta received from its co temporaries on these dispatches, and tha immense sum of its enterprise dwindles down to about $5,000.’* The Cal. Farmer thinks that New York and Australia will prove remunerative mar kets for the surplus grain crop of this State; A sufficient and profitable market for all the grain California is capable of producing would be worth far more to her than the gold mines. It is intimated by the London Horning Chronicle that Macaulay cmbfaced what are called evangelical principles just before bo died, and went to sleep with the Christian’i' hope of immortal joy. It is said that cows Will yield more of lacteal fluid when milked in silence.
