Editors :—1 have often thought 1 would communicate to you some of the inn uy incidents which have occurred within my knowledge since the early settlement of Cal ifornia, which if you see fit to publish may he of interest to some of your renders. Few who arrived here in the early days of mining hut know the trouble and annoyance occasioned by the Indians, which, added to the hard fortune which seemed to he the lot of nearly all, were quite as trying to the pa tience ns the afflictions which Job suffered. Hardly a night passed without some annoy ance from the natives, who claimed the first right of our mountain streams and unculti vated fields, from which to gather their sub sistence, ami when we rcllect, it is truly sad to remember how their rights were infring ed. YVe took from them their all, save ex istence, and even that, sometimes, as 1 am about to relate. One dark night in the month of May, 185-, after a hard day’s labor, we sat by our camp fire, congratulating ourselves iq>- on our flattering prospects, when we were brought to our senses by the sharp click of an arrow which whistled past us, striking the rocks in the darkness beyond. But this was not all. Another messenger came, and with it went out a curse upon the tribe which had sought this treacherous way ot disturb ing our enjoyment. Unfortunately the extremity of one of our number hml been the target, and with all the haste imaginable lie drew the arrow point from the bleeding wound. Our pistols were in good ortlt r, but where was onr foe ? The darkness prevented onr seeing them, and we were obliged to place a guard and wait the coming of the morrow, which we greeted with pleasure. From that night 1 swore within my own breast eternal vengeance up on the Digger race. YVc prepared a substantial breakfast, which we nte with more than usual relish, then taking with us provisions for a few days, shouldered our rifles and started in search of the lawless intruders who had so often im posed upon us. Y\ c climbed to the top of one of the highest divides, following its winding course up the stream, often stop ping to take observations, or catch the sound of our foe > We travelled on for ncwi;ly_n day without the slightest trace of a human being, save ourselves, having ever passed that way On going down the divide we were fortunate enough to find a stream of pure flowing water, where we built our fire and camped for the night, completely hid from all observation. The night passed with out anything of note occurring. After ta king an early breakfast wo again started on our hunt, r ecling that the result of the day would be o.ic of importance. Wo had pro ceeded Imt a short distance dwon the stream when we were surprised by the smoking brands of an Indian lire, and felt convinced they were the object* of our search. Y\ ith cautious step wc advanced for nearly a mile when one of our number, who happened to he in advance ot the rest, suddenly discov ered one of the d s, (r,s lie called him,) standing upon a point of rocks which seem ed to project out farther than the rest, ap parently watching the finny tribe, and ex pecting from them to make his morning meal. Wc looked around for more, hut he stood alone, and he alone was to be the victim of onr revenge. Two rifles were raised towards him, hut only one report was heard. One leap cleared him from the rocky pinnacle and lie floated down tho river a lifeless and disfigured corpse. Months flew by and winter with its snow nnd rain caused the red men to sue for quar ter, ns starvation was fast reducing their number, and their only alternative was to seek protection from those who had been their hated foes. A large number had as sembled at the settlement, one of which at tracted my attention. About her forehead she wore emblems of the deepest mourning, and every feature betokened sadness mill sorrow. <>n inquiry of the tribe ns to tlie occasion of this, I learned that a short time previous her Indian had been killed by a par ly of huntsmen. All this I had imagined, for loosely thrown about her pule and slen der form, t lie only covering she bore, w as a blanket, having upon one corner the prirutc mark of one of our company. 11 was near the midnight lionr, when the howl of the Cnyoto lmd ceased (or the night, mid all nature seemed hushed, when the w ild dirge of the Indians broke upon our ears ns they danced around their camp tires, indica ting that something unusual hud happened. Their carousings continued until near morn ing when all was again quiet. Death was in their midst. The lone Indian woman was no more. Grief nnd sorrow lmd work ed upon her system until death had taken her to meet the victim of our revenge. CoitTUKD. WrAVKltvIM.K, January, 1850. A Caliiokma Swindle. —A gentleman, aged 35, lately became enamored of a yonng lady of 15 summers, and desired to consum mate 1 1 is happiness by a matrimonial union. In the plcutitndc of his love and liberality, lie gave her parents $lt?0 to consent to the proposed nuptials, and the young Miss $20 wherewith to purchase a wedding dress nnd engagement ring. The ceremony was to have been celebrated on Thursday. T he arrange ments therefor were completed on Sunday. On Monday, the groom in expectancy call ed to sec hid intended, and found parents and girl gone, and the house empty. YN hat a swindle !— Sac. t'nun. Another Litti.f.

The Blind Boy at Play. BY Kl.IZ.V COOK. Tlio Winil boy's boon at plnv. mother, And merry prunes we hod! We led him oil liis way, mother. And every step was glad ; Itut when we found a starry (lower, And praised its varied line. A tear came tremldinp down his cheek. Just like a drop of dew. Wo took him to the mill, mother, Where falling waters made A rainbow o'er the rill, mother, As golden sun-rays played ; lint when we shouted at lire scene. And hailed the clear blue «kv. lie stood rpiite still upon the hank And breathed a long, long sigh. We asked him why he wept, mother, Whene’er we found the spirts Where periwinkles crept, mother, And wild forget nre-nots. 1 Ah nre !’ In- said, while tours ran down As fast as summer showers, ‘ It is because 1 cannot see The sunshine and the flowers.’ Oil! that poor, sightless bov. mother, lias taught me that I'm blest ; For 1 can look with joy. mother, On all 1 love the best ; And when 1 see the dancing stream, And daisies red and white. 1 kneel upon the meadow sod, And thank my (lod for sight. How to Write for Newspapers. AVc commend tlie truth which the follow ing extract tenches to thoso who would cul tivate n taste nml accuracy in writing for newspapers. The newspaper is probably the best teacher, and where correct style is fol lowed in writing for it, becomes the most in structive and pleasant companion. As a general rule, short pieces are best liked. A gentleman in a bank once told ns when we asked him to subscribe lor a cer tain Quarterly Review' : ‘ Read a Review ! why, 1 never rend anything longer than a tolegrnphic dispatch 1 lint l will take it and send it to my brother, who is n minister in the country.’ The public like a short article, when it is a condensation. This introduces a second idea. An arti cle to he printed should absolutely have something iu it. If professed argument, it should lie conclusive ; if pathetic, it should moisten the eyes ; if nil anecdote, it should liavc a sharp poiiTT;'it j”diTTo.sdpTi\q 11vticfilM go to the primitive rock ; if practical, it should go like an arrow to its work ; it should awe the soul that rends it. A good newspaper style is not as easy ns it seems. Its Soy I la lies on the side of at tempting a popular manner, and succeeded only in being more familiar than a man ought to lie at his own table, or degenerating into slang, or become very childish. ItsClinry bdisyawnsfortho.se who, shunning Scylln, are determined to have real thought, pith, and value in their writing, and so become too learned, or profound, or imaginative, or philosophical lor any but scholars or culti vated people. Nothing ever touched the heart of a reader that did not come from the heart of a writer. IntekKstinc; GnoonAiiiicAi. Fact.— Vp to the time of escape, of the Russian ship i>wina from the Allied licet in the (lull of Tarta ry, says t ho tSiiu Francisco llnald, it was supposed by all writers on geography that there was no outlet from Gulf of Tnrtary to the Gulf Snghidieii, and therefore Saghalion is described upon all charts ns a peninsula. The escape of the Ihvimi from the English fleet in the Gulf of Tnrtary could not be ex plained except upon tlio hypothesis that the gulfs named were connected by u narrow channel known only to the Russians. In conversation with one of the crew of the Ihvina tlie editor ascertained that such a channel exists, and that through it the Union escaped, lint thut it is extremely difficult to navigate, running us it does through the sand deposited at the mouth of the Amoor. Atthe time the Dwinaescaped from Castro’s Ray, Commodore Elliott sus pecting that she had sailed for the head of tin: (*ulf, proceeded ns far nortliwn.nl as he could in boats, with the hope of finding the channel, but did not succeed. He subse quently reported that there could be no channel through which a ship of the small est tonnage could be navigated. It is now demonstrated that he was iu error. The question is now definitely settled, and we expect that any maps that may hereafter lie drawn of that part of the world w ill repre sent Snglmlin to be what it is—an island instead of a peninsula. Tiie Rird okthk Toi.nxc; Rem,. —Among the highest woods and deepest glens of bra zil, a sound is sometime* beard, so singular that the noise seems quite unnatural ; it is like the distant and solemn tolling of a church bell struck at intervals. This extra ordinary noise proceeds from the Arawongo. The bird sits at the top of the highest trees in the deepest forests, and though constant ly heard iu the most desert places, it is very rarely seen. It is impossible to conceive anything of more solitary character than the profound silence of the woods broken only liy the metnlie and almost supernatural sound of this invisible bird, coming from the air and seeming to follow wherever you go.— Tim Arawongo is white, with a circle of red around its eyes. Its size is about that of n small pigeon. AriMoxiTonv.—The San Francisco Herald of January 11, contains the following, which it says needs explanation : A handbill was posted nil over town Inst night, with the words ‘ J’repart to meet thy (led a sentiment which cannot be too deep ly impressed upon the mind of every indi vidual, but the object for its public posting just at this time, we do not exactly compre hend. The Logic of Mercy. A friend (says the Mnrysvillo Herald) re lates the following little story : At the theater, the other night, when Mrs. Haller was making tho last appeal to the Stranger, a little girl turned to her mother, with her eves sparkling with tears, and said : ‘ Mother, it is so cruel for that man to drive her away ; why don’t he let her come back ?’ • My child, she has sinned and been wick ed, and he cannot take her back !' ' Hut mother, hns’nt she repented, and havn't you ofteu tohl me that 1 must be kind to those who have done wrong and are sor ry for it? 0, 1 wish that cross, cruel man would let her come home !’ Tho mother was silent ; the child's inno cent heart born logic was unanswerable, save by the convulsive quivering of tho lip and the dewy eyelash. Tho play went on, and the child forgot the tremendous rebuke to human,Christian cruelty, which sprung from her own innocent child’s heart. lint this is not tho logic of the world.— Let her who has sinned creep timorously and tremblingly up to the mercy sent of a just nud avenging (loti, for there she may find mercy and peace ; let her speak to tho children at play, run her lingers through their sunny curls, and wish herself as inno cent ns they ; let her ho down to rest by the she wolf’s it maybe that tlie image of God may make tho wild beast pitiful ; but let her not ask for pity at her sister’s door, w ith ashes on her brow, nud the sharp fangs of conscience gnawing at her heart's life—for there they will say only, ‘ Peace be with you ; go hence, and - ‘ Lie not down m sleep lienenth the trees, Where human tracks arc seen. Amt come not near tho crowded city more.’ Not so the young child, w ith finger prints of the Creator's hand upon her brow, and her young heart palpitating with innocence and merry. To her let the repentant sinner tell her tale of guilt and sorrow, for it may he when the child’s prayer is heard — veil, the Recording Angel will bl^ytsoutTtho record of her sin, and leaning Ms face upon his hands, snv to the oVfiors, 1 Hush, she prays for her errjjtg sister !’ Tiik .)> ohli: Revenue.- The coffin was n plain </mc —a poor miserable pine coffin. No !!owii r s on its top, no lining or rose w hite satin for tho pale brow ; no smooth ribbons about the coarse shroud. The brown hair was laid decently back, but there was no crimped rap, with its neat tio beneath the chin. Tho sufferer from cruel poverty smiled in her sleep ; she hud found bread, rest and health. ‘ I want to see my mother,’sobhed a poor child, ns tho city undertaker screwed down the top. 1 You can’t—get out of the way, boy ; why don’t somebody tnke the brat?’ ‘ Only let mo sec her onu minute,’ cried the hapless, hopeless orphan, clutching the side of the charity box, and ns ho gazed into thnt rough face, anguished lours streamed rapidly down the cheek on w hich no childish bloom aver lingered. Oh I it was pitiful to hear him cry, ‘ Only once, lot me see my mother only once.’ (Quickly nml brutally tho hard hearted monster struck the boy away, so that ho reeled with the blow. For a moment the hoy stood panting with grief and rage ; his blue eyes distended, bis lips sprang apart, a fire glistened through his tears, us lie raised hid puny arm, and with a most imchihlish accent screamed, ‘ When I’m a man I’ll kill you for that.’ ‘There was a coffin and a heap of earth,’ between the mother and the poor forsaken child, and a monument stronger than granite built in bis to tljo memory of a heartfeyi deed^ —' *''»* * * * * The Court House was crowded to suffo cation. 1 Does any one appear us this man’s coun sel V asked the judge. There was a silence when he finished, un til with lips tightly pressed together, a look of strange intelligence blended with much reserve upon his handsome features, a young limn stepped forward with a firm tread ami kindling eye, to plead for the erring and the friendless. He was a stranger, but from his first lento lice there wa» Rilcneo. ,The splendor of his genius entranced—convinced. The man who could not find a friend was acquitted. ‘ May (Jod bless you, sir, I cannot.’ ‘ 1 want no thanks,’ replied the stranger, with icy coldness. 1—I believe yon nre unknown to me.’ 4 Man ! I will refresh your memory.— Twenty year* ago you struck a broken-heart-; ed boy away from hi* poor mother's coffin. 1 was that poor boy. The man turned livid. 4 Have you rescued me, then, to take my life V 4 No, i have a sweeter revenge ; I have saved tho life of tho man whose brutal deed lias rankled in my breast twenty years.— Go ! and remember the tears of a friendless child.’ The man bowed his bead in slmme, and went out from the presence of a magnanimi ty as grand to him as incomprehensible, ami the noble young lawyer felt God’s smile in his soul forever uftcr. A Skiuois Joke. —A wealthy gentleman ju Boston, whose benevolence is rather in excess of his discretion, has ordered of the American Bible Society a number of impe rial quarto biblei, bound in Turkey moroc co, with panel covers, each to be enclosed in a rosewood ease, to be presented to each of the crowned heads of the world. The books will cost about $110 a copy. Tun:. A friend that you buy with pres ents may be bought from you. 1 m . f • Peeps from n Printing Office. HY A TY1D. “ Little drop* of water, Little crams of sand, Make the mighty ocean, And the beauteous land.” I Pgh !’ exclaims some woultl-l>o ‘delicate’ lady—* the very sound reminds or.e most for cibly of the smell of oil, nnd vve shall hear nothin" now hut the clanking of machinery and tho ‘ clicking’ of type !’ Well, what of that, fair lady ? True, tho oil we tuny use is not so highly perfumed as that with which you smoothen your ringlets ; hut for nil that it has the same basis—and is applied to n far nobler purpose. Tho ‘ clanking’ of our machinery may not bo pleasant to your over-refined taste ; but to tho true Poet it hus a souud sweeter even than ‘ tinkling of cymbals.' The ‘ clicking’ of type nmv be even disagreeable to you but ire bad rather hear it nnd causo it tlinu bo possessed of the gift of a Junny Lind, wora we to have our choice of the two. Ours is a glorious mission, fellow crafts men. Princes and potentates own our sway, and there is no earthly power mightier than ours. As wc stand up to tho ‘case,’ worn and weary though we may be, wo have at least tho comfort of the thought that though we enunot find an acre of 0oil’s earth that we niny call our own though we are poor ly paid nnd heavily tasked -though there may not be one to whom we mnv say ‘ do,’ or to another ‘ Pome’ though we may well know that we shall leave no ‘mighty name’ behind us, with our fame blazoned on histo ry’s pngo nnd sculptured in marble—yet wo are assured that our works ‘shall not per ish.’ Long nfter wc shall have been laid beneath the Rod, the ‘ still, small voices’ with which we have spoken will go on with their mighty work, accomplishing the good which we have sought while living. With our ‘ limi lets’ wo are driving homo 1 wedges’ that shall in time overturn 1 principalities and powers.’ With ‘shooting irons’of mote effect than iSlinrpe’s Hides’ or ‘ Colt’s Kevo'lVrs,’ wo march to the 1mltie agatrfSl Wrong-; sum of victory tlinu those who wield the sword. Oftentimes ns wc have stood at our ‘ ease,' merrily ‘ sticking the magical strips of met al which seemed ns things of life under our lingers, have we ‘ laughed in our sleeve’ ns we thought. Imw many would be anxiously watching for the result of our labors Imw many hopes nnd fears bung on the mere ipse tli.nl of tlies types how much tho ‘lending men’ nnd ‘ first writers’ of our day are in debted to the humble hut none the loss val uable labors of the Typo. And again our heart would grow sad ns we thought of those to whom wc should be tho bearer of evil ti dings. Jlow ninny of those who rend the dolorous beudiugs ‘ I treadful Disaster !’— ‘ Fearful Railroad Accident and Great Loss i of Life !’ Ac., arc untouched by the sad new* 'l To many and many a home do wc thus con vey the sad intelligence, and as we do so, there wells up in our heart a prayer for tho ‘ loved ones left behind,’and a thanksgiving hymn (lint ire were not of those who were so suddenly and so fcurfully launched into eternity, Ibit we have a higher nnd a nobler min* sion than that of mere messengers. Prin ters arc emphatically the Heftrrmers of the nge in which they live. In those dirty rooms where few but, mechanical sounds arc heard, a busy work of Mind is going on. Those rough looking men standing by their ease* are even now, perhaps, giving to the world their own great nnd noble thoughts—speak ing with metnlic tongues words that will cheer some fellow Worker, or spur tip some Dreamer, to works lie never thought himself capable of—sowing seed by the wayside that in time will spring up and bear ' good fruit, even an hundred fold’—planting a vine that shall at some future day shelter tho weary Pilgrim on Life’s journey—striking a rock from w hence shall gush a fountain of pure water, refreshing to many a faint and dis heartened denizon of this cold world of ours. No ' new measure’ is proposed—no new prin ciple in Science, Art, Politics or Mechanics, is promulgated hut these busy .Printers — these ready Thinkers—seize upon it and pro ceed to ‘ enlighten tho public’ upon its bear ings and itt applications for a wonderfully practical set arc they. Educated, ns they generally arc, in the sternest of all systems, that of hard-won experience, they look at life us a Reality, divested of fnlse adornings and outwuril shows. Uy tho time that they arrive at manhood's years, for their Printer life must needs commence have won the right to stand among men many years their seniors, and call them equals.— ‘ The poor boy’s college’ has fitted them for such a life struggle us few ' outsiders’ kuow of. With a brave heart but n slim purse— ofteu with naught but his ‘ rule’in his pock et—many a typo leaves the scene of his ear lier experience, to go fortli ‘ to seek ids for tune’in some distant section. If everything else fails him, you may rest assured his stock of brass never will. With this and au in domitable perseverance, and without a par ticle of ‘ greenness,’you may trust the ‘ Jour. Printer’ to make Ids way wherever lie may place himself.— Freeport (III.) Standard.
