Two of the most wearisome weeks we have ever put in. Weary of nothing' to do. This state- inent will he accepted with an incredu- lous smile by those who have, never in their life done anything but idle. But the active people who compose the greater part of our population will ac- cept it soberly, and know how losym- Avith us. We have been waiting for our ship, to come in. for we arc ex- pecting no not even a steam- boat, for a freight car con- raining our press to come in. While, waiting tor that freight car. have had time to note some thing's. One thing in particular we could not; help noting. And that is. if you desire to nuike a man thoroughly dissatisfied with himself, locate him in a strange: town and give him nothing to do. The mind that is constantly occupied is contrntrd. This is an old truth, but! it never struck us very forcibly until j within the last two weeks. By-rhe-j way, there are many old truths that we i never fully appreciate until we are! called upon by certain circumstances! lo test them. j The first few days of our ioaling we j along swimmingly. We devoured j novels by the dozen. We talked ami-; cably on various subjects and always i agreed in our conclusions. We visited j the theatre at night and agreed at. the conclusion of the performance that: we j had been highly edified. But after a few days life began to grow irksome. Wo became disgusted with novels, and having exhausted every subject of in-' ierosf. we ceased our discussions. We j freelv criticised the theatres, and de-j nounce.i certain actors as too stupid anv use. which, by the way. only g m acquainted with the pale yomu gentlemlm who so regulaih 10 HKM! inn whether he will cvei .MX 1 idei th m he is now.

We wonder if thaf bell is ringing for Saturday night; choir practice, and whether the singers will have any fun. We wonder whether the tenor is putting in his time as well as we did when we were, young and attended rchear.sil. and whether the bass singer isclioiister. and if he don't look daggers at the sopranos and altos when they giggle. We won- der what we will have for supper, so go down to .see. We were never personally acquainted with ill-. Bumble, the parochial beadle. hut we know a man that looks just, like him. He is head steward at the Otis House, and politely hands us to a seat, lie crooks his finger at an aproned Avaiter. who all but breaks himself in two in getting to our side to see whether we will have mush and milk, and while that vfivory article is coming, we look about us with the loafer's critical eye. The homeless orphans that are here i shilling; themselves represent nearly- every walk in life, from the railroad president to the lynx-eyed bagman. A whole army or servants are mustered here, but they slip about the room with- out noise and confusion, showing each 'orphan little attentions that renders, 'their yoke lighter. the sjuests. there is the man. who buries himself behind a newspa-1 per there is the sedate num. who looks i squarely over a very high collar: there; is the clumsy man. who gets iris arms; in the.butter: there is the iiot-to-be-tri lied with man. who glares at the wait- ers as though he more than half sus-: peered they were brigands wfch aprons on. and there is the man so hungry that he goes iu with both hands. A great; deal of exaggeration has been indulged in with reference to hotel people, who are said to regard ciisiomers only as so many machines to be oiled at so much a machine, but we have always found them polite and attentive, from New to San Francisco. Among' our callers was one. of the; most remarkable men we have ever' known, principally as a liar. Although i lie has only been here a month, he j claims acqiiaiiitans.hip with all the fingiiished people ot the town, and stood at our window to pick out his friends from the crowd below. he says, pointing to a silvery-haired old gentleman who goes by with a old one of the bone and sinew.
