Thus Shakespeare ni.vlu Hotspur
speak nearly three hundred years ago;
but it wa n-M-rvi-d lor the pasengers
and ervw of thu Hising Star to realize
'its truth while off Cane Hattems on
the 20th of July, 1608. At ono o'clock,
r. 31., on the 24th ult., I left New
York on board the steamer lining
Star bound for Aspiuwnll. She is a
small u-cl, and badly constructed
for the accommodation of pashcugcr.
The sliite-rooms tire nearly all below
deck, aud badly ventilated.
She is the slowest, dirtiest, htiggiesJ,
j and inot lUagreeable steamer that

us nine days and eighteen hours to reach
Anpiuwall, The I'acitio .Mail Steam
ship Company must bo trying to make
money by employing tfu'ifji" boats,
cheap cookf, cheap stewards, and im
pudent and dirty waiters. I'erchnnce,
they hope to run ofl the opposition
steamers. This is a poor way to eet
rid of opposition. It ought to increase
it. I would advise passengers to avoid
tho ItUing Star us they would pesti
lence and famine.
There are about 550 passengers on
board, consisting principally of Ger
mans and Americans, all bound, for
California, Nevada or Oregen. Some
ot thu German steerage passengers
said they paid as high as 500 for
thiougli tickets from llrrmeu to Han
Francisco. They could have come in
the iit cabin for ouo-bnlf tho money.
As soon as we were fairly out to sea
the wind commenced blowing front the
southwest, am) by tho time wc were
opposite Catic Ilattcras it blew furious
ly. Somo gazed steadily on nature's
surging and boisterous waves; but a
largo majority of tho passengers re
mained in bed all day. Many of them
ln'coine very sea lck. Among the
number was an old lady and her young
est daughter, who said she had left
ten children at home, and that she was
going to California to see her husband,
whom sho had not seen for upwards
of a year and a half, She was' so slok
she thought sho would1 die, and bid her
daughter to writ to 4ier eldest sister
to marry, and to take caro ot the bal
ance of the children until their poor
father could return home. A for hours
more and the wind ceased, and we had
a dead calm, and tho good od lady
was seen on tho upper deck viewing
the beauties of the ocean, and some
flying fish, which were sporting on tbo
waters like birds in the bushes after an
evening's shower, The good old lady's
daughter came by lor side and said :
" Well, Ms, how do you like your bri-
Jv I I'Jl' J14 IJl'Jl'.
dal tour?" "Ah! Maggie," replied
her mother, " yesterday I thought, cro
tlii.n, I should have been tood (or those
fish; but 1 am now well, and I hope to
have a pleasant journo) .Maggie, you
need not write to your sister anvthlui;
about marrying; she will marry mioii
enough without my advice." Thus
has it ever been from the first dis
covery of California gold. Theto is
no pleasuru, in crossing tho plains, or
ii a aea voyage; yet, pell-mell, ot Ko
thetnen in quest of gold, leaving fond
and tender ones to follow by lamp or
sea. Ofl have fond hearts thus been
severed forever. " Oh I man, whose
life is but a span : why dost thou nes
tle in thy bosom the pasion which
impels thee to worship nt the shrino of
VifiM, more than around the altar of
1'ciiu.i and Minerva?"

A HtOSPKCTt.NO QtWMY. Olt DIAMOND
Among the passengers Is Mr. li. V.
IVet, who is the agent of a patent-pros-peeling
diamond drill. This drill Is
propelled by a steam engine of two
horse power. It occupies a spare,
when mounted on wheels, including
engine ready for use, of n.vl by 0 feet,
and weighs .'1,200 lbs. The drill is
constructed like an ordinary gas pipe,
and has a rotary motion of 1A0 revolu
tions per minute, cutting ordinary lime
or marble rock at tho rate of three
inches per minute, and the hardest ol
quartz or Hint one inch per minute,
taking nut a solid core one and a half
inches in diameter, thus showing the
quality of rock through which it is
passing. For any information concern

4th Aug: Wo crossed tho Isthmus
of I'anama today. This is the rainy
season on the Ithmti, and tho recent
heavy rains had swollen ono of the

A Characteristic Anecdote. How Frank

shirt from the child ami threw it oyer -

brothers stood by him. The shirt not
sinking so last ns he wished, he threw
iliuk of mud ami stones upufi it, nn

the little boy cried ; whereupon Frank,

Hy this time nil except hu lllairs

enjoyed their past time, dancing in

thelrshltts was missing. The supposed
victim had found his own garment nnd

taking the icius in his hand, Tho
Lieutenant dUmounled mid went to i
General Giant's tent door, whvru ho
asked to seu tho General. Tho senti
nel on fool answered, pointing to tho
man holding the horse. Thu subaltern
looked very blank, hut hastened to his
general and delivered his messago,
,ipdogizing proloundly for his bold
blunder. Gen. Grant carelessly took
thu cigar from his lips only long enough
to mutter somu short ndvlcu to tho
