citizens, a large fraction l)elonging
to the most intelligent and frugal
classes, annually land upon our
shores. Their sterling character for
industry, and the rapidity with
which they become assimilated to
our institutions and form of Gov
ernment, render them a valuable ac
quisition. As the Herman Goveruj
ment witnesses this constant dimin
ution of her strength, this perpetual
loss of national vitality, it is no
wonder site gives, expression to her
uneasiness by instituting plans to
prevent it if posmb'e. On the 24th
inst , the question was asked in the
House of Deputies, at Berlin, re
garding the measures which tbel
( tovernment had taken to prevent
emigration. The Minister ot the
Interior replied that it was impos
sible to restrict it after conceding
the right of change of domicil ; that
enlightened and judicious legisla
tion was wanted to elevate and im
prove the condition of the people,
and tender them of value to the
home country. Yve wonder thnt
invested in their herds. Tlie writer
fears the 500 Snake Indians at
Yainax ?amp may become excited
and join the Modocs, and thinks
that a sufficient force should be kept
at both Klamath and Yainax to
keep the Indians in subjection. He
thinks iff apt. Jack's band is not
captured before Spring, it will be
an all Summer's job, and will prob
ably extend to Goose Lake ami all
the settlements in that vicinity. It
is not known that a solitary Indian
was killed in the tight; such lieing
their impregnable position.

A TeaUMOotal to Hon. J. H. Mitchell.
Last Friday evening the friends
of Hon. J. H. Mitchell, United
States Senator elect, uumbering
about one hundred, tendered him a
grand reception and banquet at the
the St Charles Hotel in Portland.
After the dinner was finished, the
health and success ot the Hon. gen-
tlenwn was proposed by II. W.
Scott, who made some remarks ap-
tacked an escort ot twenty-two men,
who, with two wagons, were mov

officer sent a courier to Col. Ber

Speaking of the "Signsof Spring,"
the Olympia 'Yibune says : "If the
appearance ot insects denotes the
close proximity of spring, then that
season is not far off. Bugs and
moths and flies are returning to life,
while the swarms of mosquitoes ami
gnats may daily be seen near pools
of standing water Frogs are be
coming nightly more numerous and
more noisy; trees are again budding;
all nature, in short, is yawning in
token of awakening from its winter
slumber. Unless we have more and
heavier frosts than have yet appear
ed, we shall hardly be able to real
ize the fact that we have passed
through another winter." In con

weather we have lieeu having on
