A tVvr ycra ago we nuulo a trip to
the Eastcra slatca, to visit relative,
ami to vry the tuonotouy ofUw years
of our past life. V took imM on
the AJjis at Portland for 8au Fran
cisco. The price of passage at the time
wan tvio, and a tlwrw wn no connec
tion, by rutl then with that taport, w
wvro under the necessity of making
tho trip by water. The AJax waa a
staunch built vowel, but bad the wpu
trttion of being the roughest sailor on
the IVifle mt, Yt stowed lu fitlr
shar of edlblea before omwing tti
"bar" at the mouth of tho Columbia,
but before U'lux safely over the bar,
tho edibles of which we had w
freely partaken, wwaurrcudered up to
the uYmauifej of greedy .Neptune.
After three days pleoatiut sailing, we
lauded at San ftanclsco about ld
night, and ou tow-king the wharf, wo
were saluted with uch a diu of lusty
voiow from hotel runners, and all
kimU of "laekoy," wprtwenting
ry nation on tho -.irih that wo
were not mve but what the "Tower of
Mabel" wa In closw proximity. We
katcuel to make our meu) frutu the
bedlun crowd, to a but for the Hum
Houso, and were soon safely eueonol
withiuthe walla of that niot ooaino
pollttn hostelry. We had m fellow
-pawnKn to tho city, Mayor Berry
who had formvdy uion aupeiiuten
dent of ihe Ongon ponltoutiary, and
also a Mr. Bronaou, of Corvallls, m ho
was on hi way to New York City on
bualuei wnuoctod with aouie material
iutertst of CorvallU'a enterprising citi
tuna. Ou our arrival at tho Hu
House we fouud it Itupoextblu to necure
rooms lu wbiub we could enjoy a few
hours of pleasant slumber; we tberv
foro naUil oum-lvui lu cutthkmed
chain, tried to coinpotte our wearied
brain, and urrendured ourwive to the
anna of Morpheus. About 4 o'clock
In the morning we were aroused by a
light tapou the ahoulder, and informed
that we could retire, us a room had be
eomo vacant by tlie departure of some
KucaU ou an early train for Bacrameato.
We readily accepted the pruflen-d
room, and were wxjii resting ou what
then appeared to be a "bed of rows"
butou awakening from our troubled
sleep, we found that we bad htld our
bodies down where other mortal bad
made their mark, aud therefore, couid
not boat tbut our couch wan of mi
We ahook the drowy god from our
eyelids alnut 8 o'eloek in the morning,
performed our uuid ablutiomt, and
leisurely tracing our ateps to the dat
ing hall, we floated ourselvw, and our
eyes were greeted with such an arraj
of luxuries aa aeldom greeta the eyi
of man. Every clime under the nun
wan there represented by fruits, vege
tables, vineyards aud everything cal
culatud to tempt the appetite. Wheu
we arose from the breakfast tabic, the
wealth of the Indies could not have
tempted us to swallow another morsel,
After partaking of our morning meal,
we sauntered around the city, and
while so doing, we could not but caul
our thoughts back to tho time of our
Unit visit to Sun Francisco in IW7,
when there were not exceeding ou
hundred of white population, ami
wheu we worked on the bench slack
ing lumber supplied the city from
Portland. We visited the city niarke
aud were astonished at the profusloi
of meats and vegetables there dls
played, a market which now require
one thousand head of mutton sheep
week, to supply the demauds of the
Inhabitants. Now, Imagine the wu
sumption of meats in that metropolis,
when there are about a dozen othei
markets supplying anlmul food to Un
people, and then reflect that Oreirnu
after supplying hur own market, will
never full to have good dctiiuud for all
her surplus mutton. V
But let us proceed with our narra
tive. After passing the day In visiting
the sights, towards evening we began
to make preparations for our departure
eastward In the morning. We re
paired to the olllce of the railroad
company, procured tickets, for which
we paid f 150 to Chicago. We then
went to a restaurant, which was noted
for its careful preparation of edibles
for travelers by train, left our basket
with orders to fill it with certain
articles of ,fxjd which we thought
' would gratify and satiato the appetite.
Among the delicacies we ordered, was
a nice boiled ham, and when we re
ceived our basket late In the evening
that hum looked most lusciously tempt
ing to the palate, We were to start
early in the morning for Chicago, and
therefore hastened to our castleated
room where we had spent the early
' morning hours, aud again surrendered
ourselves to the fairy god "Bulmy
Bleep." Bright and early in the morn
ing we were aroused and informed that
"time is up' We hastily donned our
apparel, entered the buss, and were
soon landed at the depot. And there
'' was confusion worse confounded; we
did not know whether our trunk be
longed to us or some one else from the
way it was handled. It was cast
aboard heller skelter and we never
saw it again until we reached Oinahn.
Boon the Whistle Hounded, the wheels
is'gnn to revolve, the cars sped onward,
Ban Francisco was soon lost to view,
and it was but a few hours until we
wore at the top of the Bierra Nevada
mountains, and when we reached that
elevulcd point, u panorama was present
ed to the sight that eclipsed all we had
ever seen before,
