SATUItDAY, JUNE 5, 18C9.
A Murderous Sea Flower. One
of the exquisite wonders of the tea is
called the opelot, and is about as large as
the German astor, looking indeed very
much like one Imagine a very large
dcuble astor, with ever so many long
petals of a light green, gljssy as satiu,
and each one tipped with rose color.
These lovely petals do not lie quietly in
their places, like those of the astor in
your garden, but wave about in the water,
while the opelot generally clings to a
rock. How innocent and lovely it looks
on its rocky" bed. Who would suspect
that it could eat anythiug grosser than
dew or sunlight ? But those beautiful,
waving arms, as you call them, have an
other use besides looking pretty. They
have to provide for a large, open mouth,
hidden deep down among thenv so well
hidden that one cau scarcely find it.
"Well do they perform their duty, for the
instant a foolish little fishlet touches one
of the rosy tips, he is struck with light
ning, lie immediately becomes numb,
and in a momeut stop3 struggling, and
then the other beautiful arms wrap them
selves around him, and he is drawn into
the huge, greedy mouth and is seen no
more. Then the lovely arms nnclose
and wave again in the water, looking as
innocent and harmless as though they
had never touched a fish.
' Jenkins Outdone. At a recent
grand hop, in Addison, there was a great
array of belles and dry goods. The fol
lowing is a description of the costumes :
The beautiful Miss B was dressed
in a pair of high-heeled gaiters, lined
with cloth, and fastened with strings; the
wore a beautiful suit of 1 air which she
had borrowqjroni her sister, who did
not participate. The magnificent Mrs.
W wore short sleeves and a splendid
low neck, with checkered stockings, tied
with a beautiful pair of eelskins, which
she had received in the shape of a legacy
from the late Mrs. Fish. Miss P
was dressed in a watered silk, with a
large waterfall, reminding one forcibly
of what Dr. Crane terms fumjue heme-
todes. Miss K seemed the belle of
the evening; she wore a pink scarf, tied
behind her ear with the end falling
gracefully to the floor, and looped skirt
made of the star spangled banner, with
stripes and stars on one side, and stars
and stripes on the other. All were dis
appointed that this ambrosial flower
could mt remain during the entire even
ing. Miss G- , from Duck Lake, en
tertained a large circle of friends by her
sparkling wit, which robbed her dia
monds of half their brilliancy ; she wore
a No. 7 shoe, run over at the heel, and
newly greased. Miss E , of Skim-
merville, wore a walking skirt with an
invisible waist ; in her hair she wore a
red, red rose ; she was like old sherry,
pale and very delicate had trimmed
her nails before leaving home, and, neg
lecting to put on gloves, had taken" a se
vere cold. Want of space forbids ; our
continuing this notice.
"Grave" Business. One of ! the
coolest things in the advertising lino we
have ever met, is the notice of the open
ing of a new cemetery by a certain
church society, published in a late issue
of a village paper, in which they parade
the fact that they had laid out some new
"beds," and praised their grounds as a
"good resting place," and ask for ; tho
patronage of their friends ! They must
be a set of "grave" signiors, those fellows.
Is it not time that the radical editors
should cease prating about "rebels" and
the "great rebellion V Don't they think
it about time those terms should be
dropped ? Examiner.
We don't blame the Examiner for
asking such questions. Every Democrat
who became a rebel sympathizer, and
gave aid and comfort to the rebel cause
during the war, sincerely desires that
the fact may pass into oblivion at the
earliest moment. But tho bloody spots
will not out. They, their sons, and their
son's sons, must bear the stigma. When
these crimes are forgotten memory will
have faded away. Have we forgotton
the Tories of the revolution, or the Fed
eralists of 1812 ? How slight their
crimes in comparison with the rebels of
1861. '
The old Manhattan well ot New York,
whose whereabouts had been forgotten
for many years, was recently discovered.
Into that well the body of a murdered
girl was thrown by her lover, about
seventy years ago. The man was de
fended by Aaron Burr, Alexander Ham
ilton and Edward P. Livingston, and was
acquitted, though there was an almost
universal belief that he was guilty. -

A Wonder of Naturis.- Colonel A.
S. Evans, writiug from Treasure City,
the 10th ult., to the Alta, tells the fol
lowing :
From John 31. Murphy, Esq., recorder
of the Patterson District, I obtain some
very interestinsr facts in regard to the ri
val of Kentucky's great natural wonder,
the Mammoth cave of Nevada. This
cave is situated in a spur ot the Buckskin
or White Mountain Eange, and about
twenty miles this side ot Patterson, or
fifty miles from Treasure City. ;The en
trance is on the south side of an isolate"d
butte or jriacacho and near its base.
The openiug is so low that a man must
stoop to enter it, but twenty feet in ; the
vault iu the limestone, it widens rapidly,
turning toward the east, and you pasa
through chamber after chamber of im
mense proportions, some of them of s,(li
vast height that the light of tho torcWs
fail to show any signs of a roof. Mr.
Murphy, with a party, penetrated 5,0U0
feet from the entrance nearly a mile -finding
no end. They saw many cham
bers iu which iinmene tougucs of lime
stone hung from the roof, io places al
most touching the fljor, andirt others sta
lagmites abounded, as in the-Mammoth
Cave of Kentucky. .They found traces
of burnt sage brush, showing that the
Indians had been there as far as , they
went ; and the guileless soo of the soil
told them that they had penetrated five
days journey into the cavern, found a
lake full of fish, and yet saw no end to
the succession of lofty chambers stretch
ing out before them. Lo was always a
very poor Indian and given to lying.
Mr. 31 urphy's party got out of material
for torches, lost their way and were glad
enough to grope their way back as best
they might, not caring to make a second
attempt to fathom the mysteries deep
hidden in the bosom of the mountain.
A hotel is to be built there, and it is
tnougiit tnat the cave wni. in

Gold discovered ox the Molalla
River. The Comercial says : We have
learned the following facts in reference
to reported gold discoveries- on the head
waters of the tributaries of the Molalla
river. Some three years ago, an old Cali
fornia miner named William Sprague,
was employed by the Oregon City incor
porated Mioiug Company, to prosecute
the work on a quartz tunnel; specimens
having been discovered previously in
sufficient abundance and richness to lead
to a firm belief of an extensive gold-bearing
lead. Sprague was employed several
months in prospecting and wording. For
his services he was paid the sum of 8750.
A number of specimens were found ii
digging ihe tnuoel, which were seat by
Capt. Hedges at that time President of
the Company to the assay office in this
city. The result of the assay proved a
richness ot 8795 per ton. Was of capi
tal and confidence on the part of the
company, prevented a further presecutiou
of the work at that time. Sioce the first
discoveries, the company have irom tini
to tims employed Sprague to do sufficient
work to hold the lead, on which they
now pay regular taxes on real estate.
The tunnel has been- extended back into
the mountain about thirty-five feet. Spec
imens taken from the tunnel are reported
to be of a rich bearimg character, and
only require time, capita) and labor, tr
develop into a rich mine. During the
time which Sprague has been employed
by the company, he has been frequently
prospecting "on his own hook," aud ha,
discovered rich surface diggiags along
the bed of a small tributary of the
Molaila river, called Lost Coflee Creekr
which will pay from S3 to 6 per day to
the hand. These diggings extend along;
the bed of the creek for about eight miles.
The creek runs through a deep defile or
canyon in the Cascades, inaccessible to
cither horse or wagon. " The hills on
each side, on account of fheir steep ac
clivity, ruggedness and being densely
covered with a heavy growth of timber,
have not been extensively prospected,
but from the locality, the indications are
favorable for paying diggings. Sprague
has sold one sluice right and 300 feet
along the creek to Wa Kce, of this city,
for the sum of 8750, who will shortly
place a large number of Celestials to
work. The mines are fifty-eight miles
directly cast of Oregon City, far back
into the Cascado range. The facts, as
related, were given to us by tho man,
Sprague.
At a recent convention of working
women in Boston, it was stated that the
majority of the girls employed to operate
on heavy sewing machines in shops,
"last" only from one and a half to two
years, although a few stand the labor a
little longer time. "Their backs give
out, their spines give way. It is that
ugly motion of the foot that spoils the
spine. '
When Ferdinand II. of Naples ("Bom
ba") first heard of railroads, he gave it
as his opinion that they were an inven
tion of the devil, and declared that none
of them should ever be constructed ia
his States. His confessor had to remon
strate in the most urgent manner with
him in order to obtain his consent to the
building of the first railroad in Naples.
Paul de Cassagnae, a' Parisian editor,
has been branded' as a liar ; more - than
five hundred times ; has been Bpit upon 1
in the street seven times, and suffered
four tweaks of the nose and four publio
horsewhippings. He has fought nearly
a hundred duels, for "which offence he
has beeu several times ; imprisoned, and
has sixteen challenges outstanding. .
