A WELCOME TO SPRISQ.
BT III. L. A W. H0BH1X0.
We welcome thee, Spring, from the tar, sunny south,
With thy soft breezes wooing the flowers
From their slumbers to gladden and brighten again
Every nook in the grand, woodland Lowers.
The sun smi'es a welcome and ttfHugh the far depths
of the calm sky's cerulean bis beams
Dance giadly and fleetly in scetiing doligbt
To the music of merriest streams.
The birds have returned and their soul-thrilling songs
Swell melodiously out on the breeze.
As gaily they flit liketne sunbeams, among
The boughs of the blossoiuine trees.
And joyfully through thy bright garland ot days
All nature awakuis and smiles;
And sunbeams and melody mirthfully flit
Through the woodlands' bright, tlower-'broidersd
Bright smiles wreath the lips of the youthful and fair.
And the heart with new happiness thrills
While viewing thy earliest, fresh-spriuging plants
Which crown the rich valleys and hills.
The invalid catches bright glimpses of thee
From her couch to toe window close drawn,
And wrtaths or delight crown her beautiiul brow
As she welcomes thy sunlighted dawu.
The aged and weary, forgetful of pain.
Rejoice in the light of tny sun.
And dream of a springtime of endless repose.
When life's toilsome journey is done.
Then welcome, thrice ivelcouic, thou beautiful Spring!
Since thy coming aw kens delight
Alike in the bosom of childhood and age.
And gdds darkest pathways .vith light.

A littooM .Mr. Teller's Task.
(From our Regular Correspondent
Washington, D. C. , April IS.
Now thai Lent in over, Washing
ton lias for a brief season resumed
those social enlcrtaitnents from
which society has had a short respite.
The President has giveu one general
rece.t ion, on which occasion the
Wi.iic House was crowded beyond
precedent, and ih a is saying a good
deal, for tbe o!d mansion has been
packed tic lore. 1 hero lias been
some talk about building a new
Presidential residence, 'but there is no
prospect of this being done soon.
1 he present house is ol.J and lacoo
venient in manv respects iust too
good to tear down but not quite
good enough to stand.
There has been further debate on
the tariff question during the week
The subject l as been agitated, and it
will not she'll unlit it has changed
part' lines and frontiers. If all
members who have speeches prepared
on this question speak, the session
will be protracted till August.
There was a rumor yesterday that
the Seeitstary of War Robert Lincoln
would be removed a few days and
a successor appointed, thus making
President Arthur's Cal.inent entirely

horiiy the prc-nt Secretary wil
remain, the solo survivor of Gar-

and rats that have had so much to

Teller, the Secretary of the Interior,
it is leporte.i, will also a a little
spring cleaning, and more than one
chief of llureau, with his little coterie
nf dependents, is wishing that he
had not btMfcg' on princes' lavors uu
til he became too weak to hang at
anything else. Mr. Teller is a man
of ability and industry. He has ex-'
perience as a lawyer and is especially
familiar with land and min'tlg cases,
pud the Indian question, all of which
matters ar3 in charge ol the Depart
ment ol the Interior which he has
been appointed. The Department
is an unwieldy conglomeration of in
congruous pails. It comprises ti c
Patent and the Pension Officers; the
General Land Office; the Indian Bu
reau of Education. The census and
the Geological arvejr are both at
tached to the Interior Department,
as is also the Commissiottership ol
all railioads that have been granted
any loan or credit, or subsidy t
lands or bonds by the United Slates.
The Navy Department, of which
Mr. Chandler takes charge, is a much
nicer and more homogeneous ma
chine. It consists of eight nureaus,

Ordnance, Provisions and Clothing.

It is a mistaken notion that a fine

hat it pays better to spend less in

Advertising is the pole that knocks
Don't be afraid to invest in pun

Frying to do business without ad

A simp'e card may profitably stand
years without change, but a sensa

printer to do it.
A hcavv advertisement once is
more than quadrupled in value by a
small card, published for a few
mouths after, giving your address.
You can't eat enough in a week to
last you a year, and you can't adver

Now is the time to think about ad

followed by judicious action.

you realize it is what is necessary to
make him undersland his needs. Ad

The whole economy of the sheep'
farm is as perfect as intelligence
and industry can make it. A ton of
wool is worth 750 at 35 cents a
pound, or $500 at 25 cents. A ton
of wheal is worth about $32, and of
cjt-n about $10. The freight is about
the same for each, and is thus'
twenty-five times more "for wheat,

Bojtie River Beach Mine,
In 1853 gold was first disco vered
on the beach at the mouth of Rogue'
River by a party of men who came
tip from Crescent City in a whale
boat. Miners rushed in from Cre "
scent City, Port Orford and Rail-"
lolph, and in a short time the hither-"
to unknown shores wete doited with'
little villages ot log cabins, whero
the miners congregated for safety,
as the country was swaitning with'
Indians who nutlit have annihilated
thetii were they less discreet. The"
mine extended along the beach for
twelve mi'es on each side ot Roguo'
liiver, and proved to W the most'
important beach mines ever found,'
and have well merited the name of
"Gold Beach." No estimate, how
ever, of the value of the precious
metal extracted can be more than.'
widely guessed al, but hundreds of
thousands is the sum; nor is the beach'
yet "worked out;" but whenever it
is sluiced by the ocean storms and'
tides it is still profitably worked'
sometimes with results equal to the
first,. as if the gold were cast up
I rets the sea. The primitive method
of saving this gold, which is incon
ceivably finer than the beach sand,
was by rough sluices and blankets,
and drops in which were placed fronr
fifty to one hundred pounds ot quick
stiver. But thes were soon super-"
seded byjgalvanized copper plates,
thc preperalion and use of which
were accidentally discovered by a
miner at Cape Blanco, These copper
plates by constant use became brittlo
and broken, and were thrown away
by the wholesale for several years,
when it was discovered that they
were worth several dollars per pouttd
lor the gold that had "worked into
them." Cow Port Orford Post.-

If our forefathers had studied the
hog with any closeness we would
have been spared the sayings ol:
"Selfish as a bog," "hungry as- a
pig," "he eats like a regular hog,"
etc. To begin with, the hog is n t
a selfidi creature. Two hogs will
agree about as well as two men, and
a hog who was taken aiong on a
steamboat excursion would have
cause to say to his porkers: "You
y.e like men and women." The hog
is not a huntrry animal. Give him
three square meals a tlay, and lie is
content, while most men must chew,
smoke astid nibble between meals
jnrl have a lunch at bedtime. To
"net like a hog" would bo to mind
otit's own imsiness, go to bed early.
and be satisfied Willi the situation.
I'he hog is not a liar, hypocrite or
dead beat. He acts on the square,
s alwavs represented, and in his
disposition hae few equals in the
human race. He has been misunder
stood and abused, and it is-time thai
his friends rallied to give him fair
