George Ilyland, of the Assembly, from his son re­ siding in OroVille. Butte county, California. The letter is dated February 7th : * * * As for my trip with Col. Lander, I will give you ^ji account of it as well as my memory will permit. The train started from Marysvillc about the 15th of May last. I joined thorn nt Orovillo, and was so lucky aitoget in the best mess. Tho train con- j-i-ited of nine wagons, each drawn by six mules. There were about one hundred hor scs and mules, and forty persons; tho officers and ongiiieer* in ono mess, and the remain der divided into thrco messes, with a cook for oach. There were four good tents, each largo enough for fifteen men to sleep in.— On ths third day out, we came to the snow in tho Sierra Nevada, which was from five to twenty feet deep. There wc were de­ tained several days slowly working our way through the snow belt which was about fif­ teen miles wide. While waiting here, our stock was taken to llumbug Valley, where there was good grass, and the loading of our wagons carried to tho same placo ou mules. Humbug is a beautiful valley, located on the head waters of the Feather River. Af­ ter seven or eight days our wagons were safely over, drawn part of the way on run- nors, made by ourselves, and part of tho way dragged through tho snow. Arrived at Humbug, we camped about, a week, recruit­ ing our stock. From Humbug to Honey Lake it was two days' travel over mountains, but without snow. Honey Lake is n valley of over one hun­ dred miles in length, and from ten to tw«nty miles in width, but mostly desert or alkali land, so that a large part is unfit for farm­ ing or grazing purpose; but this end is very fortile and well settled, and tho sides of tho valley are mostly fertilo. There is no lake thoro now, but a fow years ago it was a beau­ tiful sheet of water, ten miles in diameter, inhabited by flno largo flsh ; but now it is nothing moro than a swamp, covered by tuly, (very like our' rushes.) Susan River, Its inlot, is a flno stream of water, and is full of mountain trout. The Pah Utah Indians wore at war with tho whites, who had gathered tqgether in tho towns and had fortified thomsolvcs.— Several fool-hardy persons would not lcavo their farms, and reportscamo in daily of new murders. Wo had boon camped at Honey Lake about ten day* when tho settlers re­ quested Colonol Lundor to join with thorn in an expedition against tho Indians. After somo urging, ho concluded to lcaro it to tho men, who noarly all were anxious to go.-— Ho told us ho came out to mako a wagon r'oad, not to fight Indians, yet prepared to Resist, or if necossary to attack them, and it was left for us to say whothor wo would go or not. Ho asked nono, but would take tho names of any who Would like to go. Thirty five handed their names to him, from which he choso twenty-eight. Tho remainder were to stay and guard the stock and other prop­ erty, during our absence. Thirty-five well mounted Honey Lakers, under command of Captnin Withorton, came to our camp on the 17th of June, and the samo night, at 10 o'clock, wo left camp and marched until near daylight, when we camped in a secluded spot, and remained quiet until the next night, so as to avoid being seen by the In­ dians. This course wo pursued for three days, when wo gave up our night travel.— Nothing worthy of note occurred for soveral days, savo silent watchos nnd frequent guard alarms; baton tho seventh night out, the Indian* fired arrows into tho camp, which did no harm, though their savage yells made our eyes open to their full extent, and our hair stand on ond, though nono would own it. In the morning our scouts were out, and saw Indians on tho hills, and reported a large valley about ten miles to our right.— Thence wo moved to give them battlo, as wc thought from thoir former success they would mako open fight, as they did with a party larger than ours at Pyramid Lake, which they defeated, and more than half of whom were killed. But ingoing through a canon they ambushed us, and fired two vol­ leys from the rocks over our heads, killing a man named Painter, from Honey Lake, Wo soon routed them, but do not know how many wc killed. Arrived in the valley, wc camped and fixed for flght. The Indians were on the hills in hundreds,—wc counted over four hundred at one time, all mounted and mostly armed with guns. They would not come to the plain to fight, but wo had several skirmishes with them, in which wc always came off victorious. Wc were armed with Sharp's Rifles and Colt's Revolvers. The Indians had many revolvers but were astonished at the distance we could shoot. They stayed near us two days, then left for parts unknown. Aftor following them for two days, we turned for Honey Lake, arriv­ ing there July 2d, after an absence of four­ teen days. On July 5th we began work on the road at its junction with Honey Lake. About 30 men were employed; tho rest of tho party were constantly making excursions through the mountains and plains ; I was among the latter. Wo arrived a*t Buffalo Springs in the Desert after two days travel from Honey Lake. Here wc put in some wooden tanks, making it a good watering placo for stock, although the water is not ilrat rate nor the grass abundant. From hero eight of us crossed the Desert to a range of mountains un our right, about fifteen miles distant.— From the summit of those wc had a fine view of Pyramid Lake, which looked so near that ono would think ho could jump into it from where wo were. Here wc wore overtaken by a severe thunder storm of rain and hail, an4 it was morning before wcjjot to camp. We next moved to Deep-Hole Springs, where nature has made a better watering place than man ever did. There arc hero 'several largo ddop springs, some of them forty feet in diameter; the water is cold, sweet'and full of small fish. Who can tell how they camo hero? Here wc found plenty of lino grass. Wo next came to Granite 'Hills ; here wo dug somo fino wells. There ia plenty of good grass on the hills. From here, a party of thirteen, myself with them, went to the left ofthe Emigrant road .thro' tho Bltlok Rock country, mapping it and prospecting for minerals, in which this country is rich ; gold, silver and quicksilver being found. There were two companies prospecting while wo were thero; one from Honey Lake and tho other from Marysville. During this tfip wo went through tho fa­ mous High-rock Canon, which is over twen­ ty-five miles long and not over one hundred feet wide, with perpendicular sides of rock from ono to thrco hundred feet high. It is a most sublime and gloomy place. Near this Canon is the celebrated petrified tree which rumor said was five hundred feet long. Wo went to visit it, nnd found a country where there was no shrub or tree higher than my head for miles, yet hero were throo trees, in nearly a perfect stato of preservation, on a ridge, partly imbedded in tho ground. The longest was one hundred und thirty-two feet in length. Tho stumps tiro still visible.— Theso trees nro certainly ono of the curiosi­ ties of tho world. While horo we wore dis­ covered b y the Indians, nnd enmo near being surrounded, but wc kept elenr of them, and, in returning, kept tho ridges to prevent sur­ prise. This wholo country is barren, tho springs cither warm or boiling hot, with hardly grass enough for tho stock of our small party. Aftor boing out fifteen days, wo joined tho main party at Rabbit Holo Springs, whero thoy were building five large stone tanks. After theso were completed, «migrants could wattr one thousand head of stock a day, whoro formerly they oould not water moro than twenty. 4 C)no who has entered Califor nia by this route, will remember the horrors of Rabbit,Hole :,tlie thirst of th« slock and the smell of the dead] animals which were, scattered over the plain for mile*. , But>hcs« \horrors will no more exist. These stone tanks constituted tho great work of tho trip^ and truly they are .a great work; they are built of watcr-limo and stone, the lirao being brought from Honey Lake by a six ox team; the rock from the'neighboring hills. From here to Antelope Spring is eighteen miles, whore wo blasted a largo basin in the rock tp catch tho watorfrom a spring. This Will long last as a monument of Yankee skill under disadvantages, our facilities for the work being very limited. Col. Limder wat constantly on tho works; saw o very thing done and loft nothing to the judgment of others, but took tho whole responsibity upon himself. From .Antelope Spring to Humboldt is twelve miles. Leaving tho main party nt Antelope, we found the stock with a strong guard ill tho beautiful Lassen 's Meadows on tho Humboldt, at the chd ofthe route, (the toad having been worked from the east to to this point.) This change of scenery was most welcome to us. After the long tramp over a desert of sand, thero wo rested about a week ; then taking fresh animals, we start ed parallel with the Humboldt, but keeping a range of mountains between us and the riv­ er. At noon ofthe first day we stopped at a fine spring from the mountains, for ono hour, but at night camped without water—star.cd early tho next morning through the hot sun, and night again overtook us without having a drop of water in our canteens.' It had given out early in the morning. After we had held a short council wc'started for the Hum­ boldt. Arrived nt tho summit of the moun­ tains, wc saw in the distance the camp fires of several emigrant trains. Our animals animated by the sight, took fresh courage, and after a hard nig4it's ride wc found our­ selves on the river just as tho sun showed itsulf over the hills. After this severe trip ( We lay still for ono day, and then started up the river, constantly meeting emigrants, whom we cautioned against tho Indians.— Wc surprised two Indians in an emigrant fcnmp, and returned to the camp at Lassen's Meadows with them, having been out tercn days. Word was scnt.to Col. Lander, who came and talked with the Indians, made them somo presents, and let them go. Thj next day more came into camp, and kept coming daily, until Col. Lander got one by. presents to take word to their Chief, Winnc- mocn, to come and soe him and make a treaty. The Chief sent back word that he would be at Deep Hole Spring* on our return. The work being finished, wc began our return, and the second night after leaving the Hum­ boldt, camped nt Deep Hole Springs, when Winncmoea, with two warriors, enmc riding Intocump. After much talk and many ges­ tures thb treaty was finished. The Indians were to suspend hostilities Until next sum­ mer, when they were to be renewed, unless Government did something for them, or made some appropriation in payment for lands. Nothing worthy Of note transpired on our routo to Honey Lake. Wo made short journeys and rested our stock. In Honey Lake wc enmped ten days before wo' started across the mountains. It wnsn more pleasant timo than wo had in crossing the May before. There was n o snow now, and tho mountain streams wero full of trout, which we made many good meals from. I left the train again at Orovillc about the first of October, after having a good time, good health, and enjoyed myself first rate during tho whole trip. The'party dijbanded nt Murysvillo, where the stock was disposed of. * * * Thero, were ninny incidents of the trip with Col. Lander that it would take me months to write.

A little thoughtfulness and care with respect to oth­ ers would often save them from a great deal of suffering, and aid them in their work. A man is discouraged in consequence of the difficulties ho meets with. An encouraging word may be all that is necessary to revise his energies, and to cause him to persevere. That word were er .6i 'y spoken. Thorc are those who are perfectly willing to speak it, but they do not think cf it. They are busy with their own work. The discouraged one s'nks into deeper despondency, not through tho'.r henrtlessncss, but their wantof thought- fulness. A young mnn is exposed to tempta­ tion. He is nbout to take a step from which a little influence of tho right will save him. There aro numbers among his acquaintances who could exert tlint influence. c But they do not sec his danger, or nre so busy that they must leave him to tho care of his other friends. He takes the step, arid it leads to his ruin. A little effort rightly put forth would hnve saved him. A l'URF. character is nko polished steel; if dimmod by breath, it almost instantly recov­ ers its'brightness. A YOUNG lady out West is charged with \putting on airs\ becauso she refused to go to a ball barefoot. Ax American poet talks of tho music of a low wind. Tho wind is often low, and very few ofthe poets can raise it. A GEORGIA , paper insists that the necessa­ ries of life bo admitted duty free. We be­ lieve that in Georgia this means breadstuff*, whiskey, meat, spurs and shirt collar*. WHAT tho world needs for it* regenera­ tion is not so muqh a startling revelation of new truths as newer combination and better appreciation of old one*. *'I SHOULD mightily like to drive out,\ said a dandy to a man, on seeing an elegant carriago standing in tho street. \Should youT\ tho man retorted. \Well got into that carriage, and I'll, engago thoy will quickly driveyouout!\ IN a villago school, recently, whon the scholars were parsing, the word waif occur­ red' in tho sentence. Tho youngest, who wa» a bright-eyed little fellow—puzzling over the word a fow moments, and then, as a bright idea struck him, ho burst out with \I can conjugato it. Positive, waif; com­ parative, wafer; suporlativo, sealing wax.\ TIIK FAMILY .—The family circle is God's blessed ordinance, nnd is the sweetest, tho happiest, and tho most hallowed spot on earth. It is tho nursery of affection, of friendship, and of virtue; the place where those ties of mutual dependence and help aro first formed, which, in their expanded state, unite human society ; nnd, nccording to tho manner in which the rights of the family circle aro enjoyed, its duties discharged, and its true benefits realized, arc the moral char­ acter, tho stability, and the grandeur of a country. DISSIMULATION .—Dissimulation in youth is the forerunner of perfidy in age; its ap­ pearance is the fatal omen of growing de­ pravity and futureshamo. It degradesparts and learning, obscures tho lustre of every ac­ complishment, nnd sinks us into contempt. After tho first departure from sincerity, it is not in our power to stop; one artifice una­ voidably lends to another till, as the intrica­ cy of the labryinth increases, wo aro left en­ tangled in our snare. THE TWO CAKF.S .—\Julia hero nro two cakes—ono for you and one for Mary;' Mary don't want hers just now, nnd you may enrry it for her till we get home.\ After a while the mother observed that Miss Julia began eating upon tho second cake, having already disposed of one. Of course, sho thought it was time to speak. ' \Julia whoso cake are you eating 1 ! \ \Mine ma.\ \And where is Mary's!\ \Why I eat hers up first.\ USKFULXRSS .—How barren a tree is ho that lives, and spreads, and cumber* the ground, yet leaves not ono seed, not; one good work to generate after him! I'knowall cannot leave alike; yet all may lc »ys *o»e- thing, answoring their proportion, \their kinds.
