The last California legislature enacted a laW to prevent the adulteration of distMtod and fermented liquors, which has been thus cpitdTniz'ed by tbe SacVAitobtoto Uftioit: , *‘tt is dVctaVcd ato offense, pn lAsbabfce ItrJ - a fine of from twenty-five to five hundred dol lars, with fees and costs as in a criminal vast?, to adulterate any Itotoors Vised as a bev- Wage, t« taiSse the SaVtoe id do We, or to iwipovt, sell, or give away lb«e sarhe, or sbll or give a receipt for adalrctoalroto. Any Jus tie'e of tfib IVafce-, toptoto an affidavit being made, that to thte best 01 the belief ot the party making the same, adulterated liquors are being imporr&d-, ttoantofivettobed, or sold by any ptoVsOto-, tosay issOC Ato order to seize 'atty attootonl tool not exceeding one gallon’ thereof, to be tested, and the testimony of any competent chemist or examiner shall be received in any trial. Persons convicted shall never Agtoito be permitted to import or sell any liquors in the State-, in default of payment of judgment and costs, the defoto dtonl shall be imprisoned in any county jail for ady U timber of day? at the rate of two dollars for every day’s imprisonment. Col lections to be paid into the School Fttnd of the county-.'’ It (s atoselattcboly fact that, ntitwithStan'd ing the strenuous exertions of various tem perance toll'd total-abstinence associations, for tho last thirty years, live majority of American itten still have a too great thirst for intoxicating drinks; and the fact has be come more and more melancholy, by the knowledge that the makers And dealers Of those intoxicating drinks are every day,ren dering them more and more deleterious to health and life, by mixing them with poison ous drugs. Forty years Ago, When men, and also Women-, drank cVeto more Vigorously than they do at present, delirium tremens , now so frightfully common, was almost entirely unknown. In those days, when even pious deacons kept their sideboards well garnished with brilliant cut-glass decanters, filled with the tempting liquids, and always insisted on making their guests Urtppy by offering obla tions to Paehus, people got drunk and got sober again, without any marked detriment either to their health or social standing.— Now ft is sadly otherwise-. The poisoned drinks Of to day contain ingredients that make tnen mad, and hurry them into strife fthd nihfdcr. The miserable drunkard fin ishes his enreer, cither by the hangman's rope* by a pistol shot in the brain fTom his oWh bahd) or by the awful pangs and fhm *ies of wtahrtt tt p»tt i f Will the recently enacted taw lend to ban ish this great moral and social evil? Is there sufficient moral courage in the cities; Villages, and mining camps of our State, to carry out its requirements ? Is anybody brave enough, after swigging a glass of sus picious whisky, which at first makes him fhriously belligerent, and, in the end, horri bly sick, to cuter a formal complaint against the man who sold him the poisonous com pound? And, If such a brave Informer can be found, Will he be lucky enough to find a magistrate willing to risk his popularity by enforcing the law ? And, if such a boldly conscientious magistrate can be found, where is the “competent chemist” to be had?— There may be various opinions as to his competency; but, cVen if that should be generally admitted, he may not feel willing to place himself in an attitude of antagonism against the liquor seller, who, peradventure, may be his bosom friend. With all these apparent difficulties; the enactment may prove itself amply sufficient; and, that it may So prove itself, ought to be the prayer of every philanthropist. Alcohol, whether pure or poisoned, is a bad thing to swallow j hut, if men must swallow it, let them have the best of a bad thing. Tim “Lightning Reckoner.” —Barnum, llie re-established showman, has caged a most remarkable adder in the shape of a than, llis name is Professor Hutchings, and from his dexterity in casting up long and difficult columns of figures, has been dubbed the “lightning reckoner:” The >'ew York Life Illdetrated makes the following mention of a visit from the Professor : “Having invited Os to fill his black-board with figures, we did so, and we must say that never, in the whole course of our experience, have we witnessed a more remarkable, mar velous, and interesting an operation than we saw, as the Professor, who had been called to the scene of action, the figures being in readiness, with lightning speed and perfect accuracy, cast up the long columns of figures which we had placed ofl Ills board. He was just three seconds by die watch in footing three coiumns of figures, each nearly four feet in length. This is indeed most miracu lous.” — 14- Embassy. —On the 17th of May, the Japanese Embassadors were formally re ceived by the President, assisted by all the members of his Cabinet and Gen. Scott. As described in a telegraphic dispatch, the cer emonies were oi a more than usually impos ing character, and were witnessed by a great number of people. The speech by the chief prince expressed the desire of the Tycoon of Japan to continue on friendly relations with our government, and the President's response promised a faithful adherence to the treaty and the most cordial feelings toward Japan. A PACIFIC tlfePUßlilO. No sensible and patriotic Californian is anxious to Cftt fels State lottse from the great American 'Contedehacy, and haVe ft set up fot itself, or become an integer in a neW leOftibinali'Oti of States, between the Rocky Mountains and HVe shares of the Pacific.— Perftaps tbe tifridn-ldvibg Sentiment is stron ger in California than in any ether portion of the Republic ; and the reasdh is lhat the great bulk of the people have not been here long baoagfe to httfe their E'dhie-niemories. They still look back,with affectionate yearn ings, to the imppy firesides and loVihg hearts which they left behind tlftm, on the eastern slope of the Alleghanies, or in the vast Val ley of the Mississippi. Almost eVbry Ual ifornian, man and wOibdrt, speak of sbrrie spot in the cast as "home!’’awA, to him or her, that spot Is hot little less sacred than is the holy Mecca to the zealous Votary of Is lamisrn. In the coming generation this sen timent will be measurably lost. Neverthe less', at the present moment, there are Cali fornians, standing high in bftciiil position and clothed with political honors, Who Hesi tate net to hint at the possibility of a sepa ration of thfe Western side of the Republic froth the eastern. In tire .great speech which Senator Lallmtn lately deliVemd before the Conscript Fathers of the Union—a speech which has been much extolled—occurs this significant sentences "But if all the efforts to preserve the Union should prove unavailing; if the fury of a party should triumph over the devotion of the patriot; if mutual hatred and contempt ambng the States should take the place of loveand mutual forbearance ; if this glorious Union, stained and torn in different direc tions, should at last be rent assunder and destroyed forever, then, like the wretched mariner, who, amidst his cense of woe at the loss of his noble ship, follows the instinct of self preservation-, California would try to saVe herself, though her existence afterwards would be one Cf mournful Solitude. 1 ’ What an eloquent text for a political ser mon ! In a certain terrible contingency, “California Would try to saVfc herself.” and let her crazy sisters, of the Atlantic and Mis sissippi, consummate their mutual ruin in their own mad way. The ties of kindred, the loved scenes of youthful homes, the pride of race, all would fail to induce California to unite her destiny with that of any eastern fragment of the disrupted Confederacy. She Would try to save herself, “though her exis tence afterwards should bo one of mournful solitude I” She would sate herself by sev ’ Oring, nt once and forever, all old hometies, and forming new ones. Senator Latham speaks with the uuctlott of an inspired pro pliet; but the contingency he contemplates —the severance Of tbo northern and south ern Slates of the Confederacy—Will not arise in our day and generation ; and, fore, it will be long ere California, from stlch a cause, will be siczed by malign centrifugal forces, nnd burled from her appropriate Or bit. Let the present Presidential contest terminate as it Way, the North and the South will not separate* There is a strong and solid substratum of common sense, under lying the turbulent elements of both these sections; that will hold them united in spite of themselvis Self-interest is a powerful divinity among the Anglo-Saxcfa ract S—a divinity they worship more in actions than in words—and the Anglo-Saxons of the North and South understand this tutelary deity too well to perpetrate an act, involv ing such momentous consequences as would the disruption of the UniOUj Without first, soberly afid seriously consulting her oracles. It is true —and a great many Californians feel it to be true—that the Federal Govern ment has played a rather step-motherly part in its treatment of our young State. We settd to the eastern side of the continent nearly fifty millions of gold annually—‘thus saving the people of tllitt section, and the Federal Government too, from a threatened general bankruptcy, and malting thetd all rich, protld, and hapPy—for which we re ceive abundance of poisoned liquofs, ahd carelessly manufactured shirts and trowsefs, boots and shoes, for all of which We are ex pected to pay enormous prices. Then, we pay into the Federal Treasury, through the Ban Francisco Custom House, several mil lions of dollars, in consideration of which the Federal Government kindly allows us a large scope for military glory, by giving us as little assistance as possible in the lighting and killing our Indians. For ten years we have entreated and implored the Federal Government for a tfans-COfititicntal railroad —our politicians and newspapers hate raved and ranted about it—and each Presidential aspirant, during these ten years, has prom ised ns his good offices, therednent j but the railroad still seems as far off irt the future as ever. If the United States Should blunder into a war with some strong natal power of Europe, how temptingly defenceless, fdr lack of this railroad; would we be. IVitb it—and its facilities for instantly furbishing us with soldiers and munitions of Wat—we might feel some security} but there is none nOW. Still, the Federal Oorernment is ritK ?n promises ; but like the Juggling bags, of whom Macbeth complains so bitterly— VOL 2.

This disregard ‘of bhr ioVcrcsls and oaf rights, has set some Californians to serious ly “calculating the value of the Union,” and of contrasting it with the prospective advan tages Of a Pacific Republican Which theircus tom house revenue woiild iiidre Vd their owA benefit, and they would ndl be obliged 16 fight every bnetfly With Whom Uncle Sari Should pick a qiiarrcl. Nevertheless-, there are holy memories and traditions, associated With the great American Udion, that fbrbld us indulging 5h schemes Of dissolving it.— There is the Star-spangled ftannter—therh are the battle fields of the Revolution, ol the war of 1812, and of Mexico—there is the tomb of Washington, at Mount Veruon— there are thousands of glorious rCcolh.-fctWriS and associations, cOhlinuAlly stirring duf bosoms, and forcing us to love and rcverencd thfe Union, however much eastern politicifids and statesmen may “despiteful'.y tisc hs add persecute us!’’ A Pi'ftAiiiiApn MArnhiosi vL —Choosing A wife is a perilous piece of business.

A California Incident. —The denmtmenl of one of those thousand and one singular incidents which life Iti California is constant ly developing, occurred in Scott Valley one day last week. Mr. Marky left New York ill the year 1849, bound for California, lie also left a wife and two small children, a little girl of five years and a boy of three. Last week his family joined him in Scott Valley; after a separation of eleven years. I’he vi cissitudes of California life had furrowed thti father’s brow ; his hair which was of raven hue when, with bright hbpfis and ttrdent ex* pectations, he bid farewell to liis Wifb and children and set out fat the golden land, is now thickly Interspersed with silver hue.— The little gir is just budding into woman hood, find the baby boy lias altrldst reached; man’s estate.
