Editors :-Siticc my few days sojourn In this • mountain town’ I have been so ‘ knocked all of a heap’ by the beauty of its location, its busy aspect, its wonderful size, its' goaheadative ness’ generally, that I have had great difficulty in collecting together my scattered thoughts. But imprimis, I must briefly mention that the agony of mind 1 endured during the trip on a mu-il from the town of Shasta to this flourishing City. I fear I shall never be able fitly to describe. My com panion duo vuyarge, A incent I-.. G . Esq.. (who. as friend Kelly informs us is one of the very finest ‘ singers’ in the State.) had selected for his own riding an animal ‘ of the first water, well shaped, of astonishing velocity, and warranted not to stumble, or stop at any place over five minutes.— For myself, he found me a very lean, elderly, lank, and shakey looking white, mofrodite horse, whose frightful nr ghing, nnd other indelicate noi ses, made, the moment 1 mounted him, satisfied me that he would rather have me ‘ off than • on.'— Of the first 10 or 12 miles I will say nothing—sim ply remarking that at the breakfasting place— • Tower’s’ 1 think ; when 1 had hardly time to swallow a cup of coffee. I was told to; hurry up the cakes,’ and that it would take us several days unless we went right on! Away we went—my companion huudri ds of yards ahead, hardly deign, lng to thru round to sec whether I was alive or dead—jolt, jolt, jolt, over ruts, up mountains, down precipices, in large holes, through hogs, ditches, streams, bump, bump, bum]), having a feeling that 150 pounds were hanging from each of my legs, and that my stomach had jumped up into my head! W-o-o-o-o-o! s-t-o-p 1 11-a-l-l-o! ‘ Judge I’ Stop for G—sake, if only for a mo ment — just to look at this beautiful sccncty —(1 thought I'd get him a little on the sentimental, but ’twas no use.) ' Well—all right. Col., just wait till we yet to the bridge /’ and will you believe it, devil a bit would he give me a ohaoce to rest, until at last in a condition more (huHjJiuiflutin'!

Hove; • the little town of Horton, have been well taken ear of by Inin t u •• m> rival, finding his table, beds, and establishment generally, highly ‘Satisfactory.’ The man evi dently • knhws the ropes’ that rings the ‘ Hell' at this Hotel, and must have been ut one time Sex ton at seme ‘ high old’ church or other. Four teen times 1 got up the first night of my arrival, thinking the town was on fire. 1 lmd hardly drop ped asleep, when ding, ding, ding,ding, went the Hell, shaking everything in the room, and sear ing me most to death. This was about 1 in the morning—for early breakfast. It commences a gain at 5, C, 7, 8, 11.11,10, and at 12 o’clock a doz en extra jerks are given. I halloed out - tire' sev eral times, but 'twas ‘ no go.' Upon seeing the ‘ ropes’ against the wall in the sitting room, I pul led them, thinking it was a - dead waiter,' when to my horror, the 1 Bell’ Bounded again. I think friend llovoy must have originally intended his house for a church ! And now a word or so of your beautiful little town—or city—is it? Tuesday night found me at the Heavervi/le Theater, and when 1 t< 11 you I was highly pleased, it very inadequately conveys my meaning. The Theater itself W ould do cn dit to any place in the State. It is well lighted, tastefully decorated, w ith capital scenery, and a very efficient orchestra, led by a talented musi cian, Mr. J. E. Sedlak. The Manager, Mr. Jacob AV. Thoman, (the l’ionecr of Theatricals in the mountains,) is really deserving of the warmest praise for the artistic manner in which his pieces are product d. The l’lav on the night in question was the Hunchback, and the- heroine of the night, Miss Estelle Hotter. The house was crowded, u'l'l a more orderly, attentive, apm--;;',alive, and de lighted audience, it would be difficult to find any where. i had never seen Estelle Hotter before, excepting ou the occasion of her first appearance at the Metropolitan, iu San Francisco, when 1 was not by any means prepossessed in her favor ; but her rendering of the part of Julia, entitles her to a very high meed of praise, and two scenes were acted better than they have ever been played be fore in California, und this is not saying u little when it will be remembered that we have been visited by such actresses us Miss Davenport, (in comparably the best of them all,) Miss Heron, and Miss Laura Kecue. There was only one ‘ Jul ia (that 1 n»r e over seen,) who could by her giaU;bless pathos auu witchery of elocution and feeling, move her audience to team by the single line, ‘ C’lillord, why don't you speak to me ?’ and that was Miss Emma Wheatley, of the old Hark. These w ords were faltered forth, in a subdued, im ploring tone, that went to the very heart of her auditory, a ’• the effect v.as electrical! MissHot tvi’s render.. k; was the rcv< r e of th s , but :n the edcbraUd line, ‘ Doit! nor leave the task tome,’ which latter she gave almost in a whisper, but beautifully and distinctly audible, and which told -.vith w onderful el'cct upon to• audit- net, she was supt-iior to any Juki I have tv, r seen. lh; whole of tins act was performed in a style that entitles the lady to hold first rank in her profession, and she evidently hus 1 hit’ the tastes ol the AVeave-r villc-ites. Mr. Thoman’s ‘ Master Walter’ was ad pirtflo, net only Ls * maiiny up,’ is JTCoep t>u nml deliv< ry am! •■nr friei <1 IV. H. Hamil ton, (once of the Park and Bo wiry Theater*. N.

I thii k—was v- ry excellent, and in the • collar' scene with the pretty • Helen.’ Miss Annie Smith, caused roars of laughter. Mr. Mortimi r. as 1 Fathom,' had it all his own way, the audience, upon each entrauce. being convuls ed with laughter, and with very good cause too. for his appearance aiul look was ludicrous in the extreme. His ‘ I fly' was very droll and funny, and indeed the whole performance clever and ta king. lie is an actor of rare merit. Mr. and Mrs. Kvrard, (so well known at Mitchell’s Olympic,) in their respective parts, add d greatly to the ef fect of the play, and in their dressing, (particu larly the latter.) showed great taste and skill ; the symmetrically formed leg and ankle, and the pret ty feet, (with the red boots included,) of Mrs. E. being the theme of universal approbation. The play, as a whole, was well acted, and capitally placed upon the Stage, and Mr. Thoman is enti tled to great praise for his tact, energy and per severance. Hut whew! 1 must stop, and take a peep at the town. Here are great big brick stores, large Hotels, Soda Water Factories, two Newspa pers, Hadis, elegant Shaving saloons, with Mar lit tuj) wash basins, (at * William's’ once with Sta hell, Montgomery 1! 1 oek, San Francisco,) two doors from where I'm stopping, a Pacific Brewery, a Court House, a prettily built Church, with Cross and steeple, a Jail, a German Hospital, in course of erection, an E Clnnipsus Vitus, erected, (satis factorily.) Express Ollices, Hanking establish ments, Ice Cream Saloons, Norcross’ Daguurrenn rooms, Jewelry stores. Druggists’shops, elegant ly fitted up, Comstock & Martin’s Horse Market and Stables—the largest dealers in Northern Cal ifornia, and indeed all the modern improvements of a city at the present day. Among the largest Stores here I have noticed those of J. S. McCain &(.o., D.M. Eder iCe,' Davison & Harris, and Pierce, Church <£ Co., the two first costing I am told to erect, over $14,000 each, and the latter $10,000 oath.

At liyce's tra iling post, some three or four miles above Cafion City, I met several old friends, and they infurmi d me that the miners in that vicinity were doing extremely well. High up on a hill-side, just a bovu tlie store, two men took out in otic day, sev enty ounces of pure gold, anil since then their claim has vieldi il from ten to twelve ounces per day to the hand. It is represented to he the rich est claim on Gaftou Greek. Other claims, situa ted on the adjacent hill-sides are also paying re markably well, and, in fact, the miners at this place as well as those who reside at Canon Gitv, are all making good wages. 1 returned to town in the evening, much pleas ed with my journey, and on learning that there was a meeting of the members of the Ancient and Honorable Order ot E. dampens Viter, I applied for admission. Without hesitation the portals were thrown wide to ndm.t me. I entered and exchanged salutations with the assembled Knights and was much pleased to find that everything was Conducted in a satisfactory manner‘(luring the solemn ceremony of initiation. O, with what an indescribable feeling of joy have I stood and watch ed the candidates as they vowed before high Hea ven to carry out the glorious principles of our beloved Institution! It set med to me as if they were already convinced that they had long grop ed in darkness, and wer ■ determined to make a memls for their past misconduct by endorsing ev ery word which fell from the lips of the worthy N. G. II. And then their w ild and extravagant joy on beholding the lufus luns, and but hold my good pen, we are trending upon forbid den ground ; this will never do, so we will change the subject. At an early Lour in the evening the Lodge ad journed in a body to the Hall room. I am not positive, but it is my Impression that every ment or carried his regalia with him, but for f ar of having them solid by the crowd.they w re not ex hibited during the evening.

Insane. —A young ninn named Joseph MeClary, aged about 25 years, formerly from Georgia, a lunatic, was brought down from Iowa Hill on Saturday, in charge of Deputy Sherill' Barrett, of Placer county, and detained in the station house until yes terday, when he was removed to Stockton.

We will notj give names for fear of offence. All great men have some peculiar mental or physical odd - tics and capability's not possessed by others. The Pett of our town whose growing r JgWfie is certainly not unobserved by nil, combines with a fruitful imagination and rounded periods, the accomplishment of playing live-balls with success, even against the most adept in this athletic exercise.— Writing poetry requiring a stiong imagina tion, and ball-playing a strong arm, are ra ther inconsistent employments ami often lead our Poet into dillieulties—Ids strong imagi nation inducing him to believe lie can beat at game the be.-1 bull ] layer.

We are happy to be able to say that the obligations taken by Knights of the order of K (jninpsus Vitus had great influence ip, settling this difficulty, since the parties are members of this highly appreciated brother hood. We cannot condo le this article without reminding onr readers of that beautiful lit tie poem which our Poet can certainly fully appreciate, which dings to our memory something after this fashion— Children you should never let Your angry passions rise; Your little hands were never made To scratch out each others eyes out.
