It being my turn to be spokesman for the party i put the usual query and was answered briefly in the negative. I beg your said i face about toys Forward and away went the party making a noise in their descent like bedlam let Loose. Doors opened in every direction As we passed and ladies gentlemen and servants looked oaf to see what was the matter. I did not feel quite comfortable and lagged behind the rest so that they were a full Stair length ahead of me. Suddenly As i was entering on the second stairs i heard a voice be i Zehn Tausend Donnan Vutter what is that Why you Young Acap Gallows i i1 have you shot like a parcel of dogs what a noise is this to make in a gentleman s House it was the voice of our colonel i Here was a predicament. .1 knew that the violent temper of the old Man would subject us to a severe punishment and As i had not been seen by him the thought struck me of escaping if i could. There was a door by my temptation was too great i opened it and entered. This was apparently jumping from the Fry ing pan into the Sre for in the room were two Young girls just in the act of undressing for the night. As i entered they both jumped behind a screen that stood at the other end of the room which hid their figures from View though their pretty Little Heads were still visible. The one seemed speechless affright while the other appeared on the Point of scream ing for assistance when by an imploring Ges Ture and some further pantomimes in which i endeavoured to explain my situation to them and invoke their silence i somewhat allayed their fears. I Felt embarrassed beyond description. Young inexperienced and possessed of exaggerating fears i knew not Whit to do. Two Lovely girls on whose privacy i had inadvertently broken in an indelicate manner on the one hand and a very hot headed Superior officer Down stairs on the Oiler was Ever mortal so perplexed t was standing it the door arid undecided How to net and the Young girls no doubt 1 if you follow said she 1 will Lead you out but for heaven s Sake make no noise for every room we pass is she took the Light and led me Down stairs.

For heaven s Sake be said she and be More careful in she Tore away from my grasp and Ere i had time to recover from the stupor in which i found myself had vanished from my sight i stood for some moments rooted to the spot and then Wilh a deep fetched sigh followed her direction. Dear Emily she is mine now and As we sit in the Chimney Corner together with our sleep ing infant by our Side we often speak of our first meeting. As to my companions they were All pardoned by the kind hearted colonel the inter cession of Emily s Uncle the owner of the House in which they were taken. The colonel always suspected me of having been one of the party but he did not find out the truth till after to had both left the service.

It was not of course suspected that i would be in there but the servant had been As an precaution sent to ask the ladies if they had seen anything of a Man secreting himself about the House. This was a critical moment for me and my heart beat violently us the servant approached the door. Men have been for a Long time had now been to Ong in a my Corrine Lux Heo Monotony of Barrack life first frustration had passed Over and. Knowing Wii i its labor of cleaning spotless tha the very act of intruding upon the ladies , in.

Thus we were Happy to reach a provincial town orly on in afternoon who we were to remain until no Irving and it cannot be called a heinous wrong if we went to excesses of Merri ment which otherwise would have been avoided. To sooner were the horses Slabbed at our respective quarters and our persons cleaned from the of Choice dust of the Road than a party met for an afternoon s sport. First we measured the Tovin in All its dimensions play in Oft Miny an innocent Juke oni unsuspecting Poa Saulson the Way and in the evening Wead to Ifred to my room where the time waa spent a merry making. About nine o clock we is wed Forth in the merriest humor in Tho world ukr an evening walk.

Emboldened by our tuck in we paid a Vinita to some dozen of houses or More and in a splendid in the heart of lh5 1 in. Some of us and i for one hesitated the threshold but then As col. Yon bal with Hin staff had taken quarters near the fears were allayed at we entered. M we ached the top Landini a servant ind inquired somewhat rudely what we me bolder in imploring the assistance of the ladies. When the servant put them the question at the door they looked at each other dubiously. What shall we say Bertha 7" said the bolder of the two a Lovely Blondine with curly hair and the sweetest countenance that Ever set the heart of a Young trooper in a flutter. Do As you like replied the other. I looked at the Blondine imploringly and she it is a most perplexing thing but after All it was Only a joke of theirs and hardly deserves to be so severely the other consented to this Wilh a nod. I cast a look of gratitude on the Lovely Bamily and she smiled slightly even through her perplexity. The sergeant having arrived with his escort my unfortunate companions were brought to the watch House the colonel who had been spend ing the evening Here returned to his own Qatar ters and the House was quiet. Meanwhile i still occupied my position at the door and became More embarrassed than Ever. The front door was locked and bolted and How should i escape what is to be said Emily after a while to her companion. You must dress and Lead him out the Back replied the other. How can 11" whispered and she cast a furtive glance at some clothing which reposed on a chair that was standing near me. I understood the difficulty and said in As Deli Cate a manner As ".ladies, if there is anything Here that you desire allow me to hand it to they blushed but did not reply and taking their silence for an affirmative i with my face half averted transported the chair to the Side of the screen and returned to my place at the fur ther end of the room where i turned by Back upon them. A cough at my Side after a while caused me to turn Andrj the Lovely Emily wag handing by my aide simply dressed Bat Lovely in the extreme. Climate and of Cali of Ounjia. By a physician. From the Fem the writer of the following letter is a physician and Well known to me. He bus had a professional experience of More than Twenty year infill practice in the of Maine. His letter will be esteemed by those who know him and it May be interesting to the Public. S. R. Kirby m. D. ?c2 Broadway feb. 16, 1850. San Francisco dec.20, 1819. Dear or. 1 had the pleasure j of seeing you i have seen the elephant As the j phrase goes have travelled Over a Good portion its mountains its valley.--, its streams and its diggings both wet and dry. I have been familiar with grizzly j bears and grim death have j in Hospital and private practice with All the forms of disease which have been so fatal to the j army of Gold seekers and to link i know Call j fornia Well enough to give you d reliable description of its mines climate and diseases. As to tha country itself it is As yet the least desirable place of residence on the Globe except perhaps the desert of Sahara. It never Rains when rain is desirable do any and in summer the heat and dust Are intolerable while Winter when Tho mildness of the weather would be delightful the constant rain Lender the whole by convert ing the soil into an Ocean of mud. Many blame the climate and consider the water bad but i must say i consider a very Good one the Waters of the Sacra mento the purest and sweetest i Ever drank. The Here Are similar to those of our Western such As fever and ague billions remit tents diarrhoea a and Dyse teries in the hottest part of summer and autumn but All Ofa Milder character than the same Dis eases in our Western slates. But since the Advent of the Gold Hunters a disease so far As i can learn heretofore unknown Here has made its appearance a knowledge and just appreciation of the nature of which is necessary to the proper understanding of the fatal character other diseases have assumed Here the past sea son. This disease is called by the miners land scurvy and when fully developed is a terrible affair and although Reser bling in its appear Ance the sea scurvy or Salt disease is essentially different both As to its cause and Means of cure. In order fully to explain my views of this Dis ease a Short physiological dissertation will be necessary. Modern chemistry teaches us that animals do not create for themselves any new matters but Only assimilate and appropriate to their own growth and nutrition material created and prepared for their use by the vegetable kingdom. Man avails himself of Toliese nutritive matters either primarily in the Chaple of grains fruits roots or secondarily by ceding upon other animals who have already appropriated to themselves the same kind of substances. Now All food is divided into two classes called respectively respiratory food or that which is consumed by the process of breathing and production of animal heat and nutritive food or that which goes to build up the system and Supply the waste. The first class consists of starch vegetable and animal oils and the different preparations of alcohol. The other class is composed of or the lean part of meat the co Gulum of blood eggs cheese or part of milk the gluten or Tough part of wheat Beans and other now every Man must be supplied with a due proportion of these two classes which proportion varies according to the temperature and other conditions in which a Man is placed. For instance the lumbermen of Maine and Canada live for six months at a time daring the win Ter season almost exclusively upon fat pork j flour and molasses and in the Spring come out perfect specimens of health and vigor while in summer upon the same diet in the Woods they Are Apt soon to break Down and come of oops ing sickly and emaciated. A Laplander or an Esqui Maux would eat and even require a Quantity of fat that would Des Troy an inhabitant of the tropical or temperate while the fruits and vegetables of warmer regions would not be sufficient to sup port life in Gigli latitudes. Now in order to possess health we must at tend to and conform to the Laws of our Organiza Tion. This the miners and California emigrants have hot done. Upon their Overland journeys and at the mines they have almost entirely lived upon Fried Bacon or fat pork and flour made into Batter cakes and Fried in the fat which completely saturates it and this is washed Down with Large quantities of Strong Eoff Eife and Large quantities of Brandy or whiskey taken if the intervals of the meals. This has been the diet of thousands for months under a scorch ing Sun when the temperature was Over a Hun dred in the Shade and at the same time subjected to most intense labor. Now Frons what we have Learned of the requirements of the system what will result Why we shall find the muscular system in a state of starvation from want of Supply of fibrin in the shape of lean meat and of Complete exhaustion from Over exertion stimulated by the love of Gold Strong Coffee and alcohol and the whole Economy poisoned by being saturated with fat which was not required for the production of animal heat. The consequence of this is that after a time Tho Strong Man generally the strongest the Heartiest feeder and Best worker in the com Pany suddenly finds himself destitute of strength his limbs fail he has palpitations of the heart on the slightest movement his limbs contract and Are troubled with cramps his face lips arid Toner be Are bloodless his Gums swell and Blue Ablack spots show themselves in Vari Ous parts of tha body sometimes covering half the surface and if no amelioration takes place suddenly expires from some slight Effort at motion. This is a picture of a severe Case these symptoms Mani fest themselves in a Large proportion of the people who have come in Over the Plains or have spent mull time at the mines and if they Hap pen to contract or gel a development of any of the endemic diseases of the country such As ague diarrhoea or dysentery from this broken Strite of the system no vital reactions take place and physicians Are astonished at the Dif thing a patient up when once Down All shall should avoid taking powerful medicines whether sick or Well and rather. Trust o the kindly eff urls of nature assisted by proper regi men and diet than to All the imaginary and delusive effects of drugs. Most physicians Haye made the discovery that patients do not Bear what is called Active treatment Here and for myself i can say that the Only incurable cases i have met were those which were made so by the so called remedies they had taken. Youre fraternally Benj. Ober m. D. Beautiful extract. In respect to the age in which we live we in common with our i generation have a goodly heritage. The blessings now common to All have been the result of Ages of Experiment and laborious invention. As we reap the fruits of the labors of others we May regard them having toiled for a. In this sense Bacon philosophize for us Milton Cowper Coleridge and Southey taxed their poetic Genius for us the great Newton made his astounding mathematical and astronomical discoveries for us the Champion of English Liberty Hampden fought and died for us Franklin and Fulton tasked their inventive Powers for us the pilgrims of Plymouth Ock and the Pead Ful. Colony to Penn for us endured the perils of the Ocean and the Solitude textile the soldiers of Lur revolution bled fur or the sages of our constitutional history constructed with vast toil and consummate Wisdom our glorious Constitution for of. Very invention and discovery of past Ages use us to Man which time has spared has become or inheritance. And with the ubiquity of the Ress and the facility of inter communion among we catch the that gleams on the test intellect of other lands. Thus the intellect Sacra fames thousands hither from All and a Jose of Calomel or a Blue Pill i have seen Many times induce mortification of the face and a dose of Castor Oil. Taken for constipation produces a diarrhoea very difficult to cure. Regard to the mines of this country i am satisfied that Gold digging has As yet not commenced that the surface washings Are simply gathering the chips which old time has been hewing from the main blocks which lie entombed in the bosom of the mountains in the immediate neighbourhood of the mountains in the immediate ravines and River bars where the shavings arid chips Are deposited and the bound still to draw parts of the world. The question then is one of some Conse Quense must the ranks be annually decimated As they have been the Patt season i answer without hesitation that there is nothing in the climate or Waters of California particularly unhealthy and that Here is not another country on the Globe where men could practice such disregard of All the Laws of the animal Economy with so much impunity and so Small a per cent age of deaths As they have done Here. Coming Here As Well As those Al ready in the country make their arrangements to avoid a pork diet Supply themselves with beef or fish Salt if they cannot get fresh wheat meal or bread made from it cheese diet fruits when possible and Indian Corn meal am Rice. Let them boil instead of Fry their provi Sions avoid alcohol in warm weather especially and instead of Coffee or Tea use chocolate with their meals. Follow the instincts of nature by avoiding severe labor in the heat of the Day and let no the love of Gold stimulate to an overtaking o the Powers at any time and i have no Hestia lion to health to the new joiners As the natives have enjoyed till the Las season when having been subjected to the same influences they have suffered nearly a much As foreigners. There one affliction Peculiar to this country which i forgot to mention and that is Poison in by the Poison Oak or thus an Poison Vine or thus Radiant. Scarcely an one who is susceptible to the effects of these plants escapes an infliction owing to the Grea abundance of both and owing also to the Bro Ken Down state of. The system from the cause mentioned above. Even this is fatal and if not it is very difficult to cure Are All hurts sores from the same cause. Whoever in coming to California will by serve the above simple rules May stand As Goot a Chance for health As if he were merely Takin a journey through the states or crossing the Atlantic. There a one observation More which is Ilia one in the ghost blamed if i said a the other night Ai he sat Soliloquy sing in the cold. They goes wherever they pleases toll free they doa t owe nobody nothing and that s a Comfort. Who Ever heard Tell Ofa Man what had a Bill agin a go psf nobody. They never has to buy bats and vitals and liquor nor has to saw Wood and run arrants As i do. Their shirts never dirty nor their browsers out at Knees at 1 Ever heard Tell on.

Now you May go and plaque the a travelling Yankee put up to a country inn where a number of loungers were Assem bled telling Large stories. After sitting for time and attentively listening to their Folly he Buddem turned and asked them How much they supposed he had been offered for his dog which he had with him. They All and curiosity was of tip toe to know one gues Ual treasures of All bygone Ages and every in i 8sd five Dulaire another ten dollars another mention and discovery of the e present generation of teen they had exhausted their patience ave become our inheritance.

At this moment a signal was american colors ran up the Flag staff in front of the government build Ings streaming out on the air.
