convinced us that the credit system won't
pay that promises wont keep a newspa

fore, adopted the cash system paj'ment
in advance. Volume One of the -Register
will close with the issue of Septem
ber 4th, 18G9, when all subscriptions on
which advance payments have not been
made, will be discontinued. "Wo would
b sorry to lose a single subscriber from
our list because of the adoption of this
rule, but justice to ourself demands it.
If the paper is worth the price asked
S3- it is just as convenient to pny it at
the commencement as at the close of the

tion price, don't take it there's no com
pulsion in the master. We hope to retain
air our old subscribers, and to obtain
many new ones for .Volume Two. As
our subscription list enlarges, so will the
size and interest of the paper increase.

I'tfrhaps one of the most "enjoyable"
things in a modern court of justice
whew not unfrequently innocent witness
es, who are "losinir patience, time and
noney in their compulsory occupancy of
the witness stand (which is a pilory) are
"ballyragged- and tormcnted: -is the
torturing in return of'some impudent un
feeling advocate. A good case iu point
is this :
In a court not more than about five
thousand miles away -from the city of
Gotham a legal gentleman had gone
through the various stages of bar plead
ing, and had coaxed, threatened, and bul
lied witnesses to . his heart's content,
when it chanced that a very stupid fel
low, an hostler was called ufJbn the stand.
lie was, in fact, simplicity personified
The counsel, it should be premised, had
made a great fuss about the previous
witness speaking so low that ho could
not hear them.
"Now, sir," said the learned counsel,
"I hope we 6hall have no difficulty in
making you speak vj)." CS uimscW
spoke rddely loud.)
"I hope not, Sir"!" shouted out the
witness in such bellowing tones that they
fairly shook the building.
"How dare you speak' in ' that way ;
Sir?" demanded the counsel.
"leant Kpeak no louder ?" shouting
louder than before, as if to attone for his
fault in speaking too low !
"Have you been drinking this morn
ing ?"i asked the lawyer, who had entire
ly lostjthe command of his temper at the
roars of laughter which burst forth from
a crowded audience.
"Yes, sir" said the witness,. frankly.
uu n uuv ia jru uv-t,u ununiu
Sir ? Look at the jury don't look at me,
Sir, in that way ?"
"Did you have any thing in your cof
"Yes, sir." .
"I thought so," said the counsel, with
a tr lance at tne jury, "well, &ir, con
tinued the "learned counsel," "you say
you had something in your coffee. State,
if you please, to the jury what that some
"Sugar, S7r,"sanswered the witness,
without the movement of a muscle.
- There was another burst-of '-'furtive
laughter" throughout the Tjourt-robm.
"This man, is no fool, your Honor
(addressing the Court), "but he is some
thing worse. Now, witness, you must
come to the point. Had you anything
else in your coffee besides sugar ?
"Yes ? You -had? (Well, we are
likely to get at the truth after all, , his
turning and twisting to the coptrary not
withstanding.) - Well, Sir, what else was
it you had in your coffee ?" -
"A spune, Sir " shouted the witness
"Do I make you. Jiear we Square ?
That was the last witness, and the last
of him on the stand. Here the trial was
adjourned until the next day.- Harper's

The San Francisco Bulletin says :
"The White Pine mines are now yield
ing bullion at the rate of about $500,000
a month. The great obstacle the district
has to contend with is the want of mill
ing facilities. At present' there are onlv
155 stamps at work, and their production
is greater man tnat ot any similar nura
ber of stamps working on Comstock ore
In .less than two months the number of
stamps will probably be increased to 350
The production, it is thought, will there
upon reach 1,000,000 a month.
