Hell-roaring bar was neither a pret
ty nor euphonious name, nor a rever
ential one; but, considering the charac
ter of its dwellers, it was an exceeding
ly fitting one for the locality that bore
it: A six months' residence there con
vinced me so thoroughly of this fact
that I could not conscientiously have
changed a single letter of the name,
even had I possessed the power to do
so. Not that it savored of sulpliurovis
odors; not that the roaiing of its ap
parent patron saint were ever heard
echoing among the canons that encom
passed it; but for sinfulness, and wick
edness, ami riotous debauchery, it was
peerless among all the mining camps I
had ever visited in California.
I was sent there in the summer of
1853, by a San Francisco firm, to close
out a business that was drifting into in
voluntary bankruptcy, and a long dusty
ride found me there early in June of
that year. A view of the camp from
the mountain had not impressed me
favorably with it, and a nearer ac
quaintance dhiy confirmed that first
impression; but, like a half-reluctant
bridegroom, I had resolved to take it
for "better or worse," with but slight
hopej however, that it would prove any
better than it looked.
"Hello? deacon. What do "you"
want in Hell-Roaring"? Preachers don't
stand much show In these diggins. You
aint wanted, better git?"
This was my greeting. I had just
alighted from my mule, tired and out
of humor, and felt half inclined to re ;
sent the brusque, unmannerly saluta
tion, but did not. It was not a con
sciousness of the truth that quieted me
for ray appearance was certainly slightly
clerical. True, I had a perfect right to
differ in opinion with tho speaker, for
of a Verity.this wa3 just the place where
L.'irogciiicrowpsa.wnafwl nrl inst til
place they should jM , maKiug no
profgci'oriu or godliness, I held my
ongue for a moment I looked up; a
brawny and powerful figure confronted
me, and I prudently held my temper.
I replied blandly that I expected to re
main there awhile, and suggests.!, with
all meekness, that appearances were
sometimes dcceitfuL Soon the Bar
was agog with iui iosity, anil a crow d
gathered. And such a crowd ! Great
broad-bhouldered fellows, dirty pnd uu-
shaved, deeply marked with chronic
dissipation, whose every second word
was an oath striplings, whose tongues
were volubly impudent and-eariy train
ed to blasphenly in imitation of their
elders, gathered round, while I unsad
dled my mule in so awkward a manner
as td excite derision. There people
weiched everythinj:, like their gold-
dust, in their own scales, and, measured
by their standard, I was regarded as a
worthless impostor. I had "store
Clothes" on, and this fact alone was too
much for the fixed conventiotialism of
the Bar. Buckskin and gray flannel
assumed a dignity in early times among
the "honest miners" more unyielding,
riioTc exacting, than purple and fine
linen. My "boiled shirt" was consider
ed an-infraction, and therefore the Bar
was affronted. "Deacon" was echoed
from mouth td mouth. Bets were of
fered and freely taken tliat I was a
psalrri-singera gambler, with a, "dead
thing," or "waxed keerdsf a lawyer; a
doctor; anything but a horse-jockey, or
a gentleman. Although nettled with
the uncourteous reception, I could not
afford to fall out with my new neigh
bors. Beating my dusty hit against
my knee with a well-assumed swagger,
I returned quietly, and asked if tho
Bar was dryl And the Bar "was" dry!
With a whoop, tho crowd adjourned
to the saloon a rickety, clap-board in
stitution, furnished with a few stools
and rough tables and the Bar drank
first with myself; then with Joe Miles,
the proprietor; then with the bluff in
dividual who had first accosted me.
Pressing through the crowd, lie held
out his big, rough hand, and, taking
mine, he led ine forward with some
thing of a triumphant air.
"Boys," he said, "I take it all back.
This is my old skipperj came out with
him from Boston in '49. He aint no
nreacher he spends his money like a
man, and don't whine. Anyone that
don? like him can call On Bill Thorp.
That's me, boysl Let's take suthin."
Finding that things had takerran un
expected turn, I immediately took ad
vantage of the new situations Thorp
stood sponsor for me, and his emphatic
assurance of my unprcacher-like char
acter and proper disregard oithe value
of money put the Bar in gaed humor;
so I explained my business, ind hoped
to deservo well of tile boys. And I won
the friendship of these people; not by
pandering to their tastes or? falling into
their practices, but by minding my own
business. While abstaining from rub
bing agahisfc their prejudices, and scru
pulously avoiding all interference with
their pleasures, I sy mpotiLJ th them
in all their little troubles, and'they re
spected me. The Bar, by day, did not
seem to be a-very bad or boisterous
place; in working hours it indulged in
a kind of feverish rest. But it was by
night that it shone in tho full glory of
its appropriate name. Then it wai that
tho vampires that sucked the bkxjd of
honest labor came forth. Short-card
men, poker-sharps, monte-dcalersl faro
dealers, and others of the fraternity,
sneaked out to prey on the earnings of
the day, and tho Bar ran riot. It was
then that great strong fellowi, who
were wearing out their lives in i daily
conflict with Nature tearing open tho
mountains and wrestling with tho
streams that others might .wear tho
gold they worn would gather round the
gambling-tables) to "try their luck" v
and this" thing called "luck" in the
early days was a strange thing. Exist
ing on tho superstition thatf is found
in tho composition of every man, in a
greater or less degree, it was a phantom
that haunted all classes, and entered
into all liiimah calculations. Luck
shamed reason and set at j naught all
mathematical certainties, and, forget
ting that a man's luck was much of his
own making, it was followed with a
persistent fatuity that led the feet of
too many into bad and dangerous
places. It was the scapegoat for all
sins and short-comings; It was the
rock upon which were built the golden
castles of the hopeful future; tho shift-
iap- TSLl ' . "u IN'
unfruitful ana cUSasirous'ijast: trie liar
vest whoso sheaves of promise often
yielded only bitterness and disappoint
ment In these tilts with: fortune the
Bar drank deep. If it was dry by day,
it was unquenchable by night If luck
was with the boys, they drank, and
dallied with it; if against them, they
drank still deeper, and cursed it.
Altogether, thd Bar was a wild and
abandoned place; but attrition with
these people taught mo that there are
solvents for even crystallized wicked
ness that there is no cloud so dark as
to be without a single streak of silver,
no nature so rugged as to bo impenetra
ble, or beyond tho reach of humanizing
I had been domesticated in my new
home about a month -When a circum
stance took place which BCemed to
change o-tirely tho wholo routine of
Hell-Roaring. There was an arrival
one morning, and the Bar throbbed
with a new sensation: a quiet, unassum
ing lady a Mrs. Hampton and her
little daughter, who sought rest and
health in the mountains. Mrs. Hanip
ton was widowed, but no ono inquired
into her history. Sho was welcomed
as a new and strange element among
so much wild, reckless life, that
brought back memories of mother, or
sister, of sweetheart far away, and the
Bar was.pleased. Tho boys christened
the little daughter "Daisy," and she
was well named. From this day a
marked change took placed Everyone
desired to be well thought of by tho
new-comers; dress becomo an object of
solicitude; drunken yells rending tho
quiet night were less frequent; spirits
of evil seemed to be quelled, and the
Bar was on its good behavior,
Little Daisy was everywhere as a
ministerinff ansel. If there was n
sick-bed in the camp, Daisy was be
side it with the little luxuries that the
hand of a woman only knows how" to
prepare. It a poor ieiiow was auour, 10
"pan out" his few last sands of life,
Daisy was there, to "wet tire parched
lips, to fillthe poor, neglected heart with
hone, or to write tho last message to
loved ones over and beyond the plains.
Quiet and unobstrusive, Daisy moved
about in her ministrations.- As she
passed the saloon on hr errands of
mercy her brown hair neatly folded
over the pale forehead, her" little- bas
ket of "goodies" on her arm, and a
word and a smilo for every one oaths
half uttered would be choked back,
and rough and brutal Jests shrunk un
spoken, as if ashamedlirr her presence.
Even Oregon Sis tojwhom
was a stranger wouljl hang her head
silently when Daisy Vwa near, and
her eyes would swell perhaps, poor
thing ! with looking back td tho old
days among the apple blossoms, when
she, too, was pure and innocent at
least, I thought so. Somehow, the Bar
was not so dry as formerly ; and Joe
Mile's, its ruling spirit, neglected his
business, and said he was tired of whis
key selling. Ho laid aside a six-shooter,
that, reports said, had served him
only too well on more than ono occasi
on, with, the remark"tliaf the Bar was
so quiet now, it wan't no use to carry
it. Joe was very particular now as to
his personal appearance, dressing in the
once despised "store clothes," and took
to solitary rambling about tho neigh
borhood. It was noticed if Daisy had
occasion to pass along the dangerous
trail through the canon, Joo was there
with his strong hand to guide her. It
she crossed the footlog over the turbu
lent streamj a Steady arm was general
ly there to support her, and more than
once Joo was found in earnest conver
sation with her, or reading the books
with which she supplied him. Joe fi
nally sold oiit the saloon,- and invested
in a mining claim, which he was indus
triously working when I closed out my
business afld ieft the neighborhood.
I visited the Bar once again. Down
tho wild Sierra'j by tho same tortuous
and rugg'&l trail that I had traversed
nearly two years before; windingamong
the same lordly pines, rich in fragrance
and standing like sentinels in tho moun
tain passes ; through the samo groves
of laurel and Manzanita, glistening like
waves of emerald and silver in the
noonday sun, ftlll-blossoriie'd and won
drous in their beauty, I approached
the Bar. The place seemed changed.
A few little white cottages peeped out
from among the rich oak foliage, spots
of ground were under cultivation, and
the hand of industry had been busy.
Tho clapboarded saloon stood in the
old place just as I Jiod firjt jseen
. .VA-..7T...... ...-rt niiiflMnif Aiinsv.
I i. h
ut iU"uiuiuuiiia conaition-6uow-Tho
ed that the institution was poorly pat
ronized. A crowd had gathered near
it not such a crowd as in the olden
time, but a sober and quiet one. Ev
ryono looked anxious to tell mo some'
thing; but no one spoke till Ifound my
old friend Thorp. Taking my hand kind
ly,ho led me aside, and for a moment
was silent "Well, Cap" ho said, earn
estly, "things is rottgh on the Bar;
they aint like they was when you left
She's gone thats Daisy and things
aint gone right ibi sctto o' tho boys
ever since. Yes, Cap it "is" mighty
I asked where Daisy had removed to?
"0 no, Cap you don't understand.
The old woman, she went back to Sac
ramento broken hearted, they said;
but Daisy, she's gone; called for, taken
up among the stars where she belonged.
We miss Daisy,- Cap.- She got round
some o' the boys, and she made them
promise to knock off their grog; Ihaint
touched it since, and I've saved a little.
If she'd only staid, this thing wouldn't
'a' happened. You see, Cap," ho con
tinued, "here's how it was: One o' tho
boys got badly hurt in his drift across
the creek, and one mornin' Daisy start
led over to take hiiti sometliin and it
was a-runnin' bank full, and the log
was slipery, and well we found Daisy
a mile below, with her brown hair all
tangled among the willows, and her blue
eyes kind o' pleadin for help; and we
brought her back poor tiling! Uiere
wan't a single drink taken on tho Bar
that day, Cap; it seemed to go agin the
boy?. And Oregon: & her that we
all thought so bad she combed out
the tangled hair, and she knelt down
and kissed Daisy, and went two miles
a-foot up tho meadows and got flowers
and put them in the little blue hands,
and there's where we laid her. Cap
up there where, you see' them white
For one timo tho poor fellow could
say no more, but sat with his face
buried in his hands.
"And Joe?'' I asked
"Hush," he said, pointing to tho sa
loon, "Joe's in there; his sand's about
panned down hot, night afore last
in a row. Joe's a-passin' in his checks
surel You see Joo went to the bad.
He sat by old foot-log,'thc melancholy
like, and wandered up and down the
creek, a-nd no one could do anything
with him, and ho took to drink again;
and the cussed temper come back, and
ho got to quarlin' -with everybody
Niglit afore last he, got in a row with
Portcgee John, in a poker gome; they
both; drawed. tut John was too quick
for him, and Joe's bad hurt Tho doc
tor says he haint got no livin' show.
May be you'd like to See him, Cap."
Wo went togetherinto theroom where
tho wounded man lay. Tho broken
windows were darkened with blankets,
and on a rough pallet we found tho poor
fellow, breathingheavilyj and two of the
boys fanning him tenderly as a mother
would have done. Tho ashy face and
heavy drops of sweat that had gather-
ed.on.jJieJtJKehead, told the unspeak
able agohy of tho sutftrer, and show
ed that sure enough, Joe's sand was
nearly run out; and he beyond all hu
leechcraft. We had not meant to dis
turb, but his ear, quickened by pain,
caught our stealthy foot steps, and,
turning round, he recognized mo.
"0, Cap," he said, "you have come
at las't I knew sho would send stinio
ono to talk to me, as she used to to
tell mo about that blessed land where
Christ lives Him that sho just mado
me understand a little, when'sho left us.
And pray fdr mo Cap, and nsk Daisy
to forgivo me for letting tho devil
come back and for forgettin' nil tliat
sho taught me. She told me, if I
would only believe all sho said, that I
would go to a glorious land far away
beyond the stars. She's gono there,
Cap, and I believe every word of it now.
0, can you prayf Slie taugil me, but,
I've" fiiost forgot how."
If ever I felt like praying, it was
then. If ever I felt able to ask for
giveness for a poor wayward, shattered
soul, trembling on the brink of the
Unknown, about to bo weighed in the
balance of the Eternal, it was at that
moment. Soon there was silenco un
broken, save by a few smothered sobs
among tho bystanders; but a quiet
peaceful light rested On pdof Joe's fac6.
"Come close;" ho said in a low tone,
"I feel better, now; I know that
I'm goin' to where she is, and somo
how I (lant feel so much pain. Tell
boyj. isTTfty .ue Desiae ni
room enough, and then I can find tho
way to when! she is. And, Cap," he
whispered, as he reached his Land un
der the pillow and drew out two pic
ture's, ''p'ut theso on my heart," for
they belong there; poor old mother and
her the only two that ever knew how
to reach it. Wiito to mother how it
was, and that if I did forget her that
I never will again. When I'm gone,
whisper to Daisy that I believed it all,
every word of it; that f ftfond the
road at last, and am coniin. Yes, Cap,
I'm goin' to Da...."
Poor Joe! the blessed seeds of light
sown by the littla daisy, hod taken
root at list, and an unruly and turbu
lent spirit was at rest forever and for
evermore. The Editor.
The following good one is from the
Roseburg "Star." Mr. Owens -frill
probably see that tho "wool" is not
pulled over his eyes a second time:
Tho joke is on our Granger friend,
W. F. Owens, this time. An individ
ual, wearing tho appearance of a- farm
er, camo to him one? day this week and
stated that he was a farmer from Jack
son county and had 7,000 pounds of
wool which would arrive next day.
Mr. Owens made a bargain for tho
wool, advanced a few dollars and gave
the fellow an order on Caro for some
merchandise. The bloated wool-holder
bought an overcoat and with tho mon
ey skipped out iW: lias not seen thd
wool nor tho fellow since; and the
probabilities are that ho never will
The English are enormous consum
ers of sauces and jellies': The latter
are made Iry the ton in the London
manufactories out of old hides, sheep
and calf-Skins, old kid gloves buckskin
breeches, horses' hoofs scraps of leather
size and glue.- During the Crystal
Palace Exhibition in' 1851 hides in
London advanced ten per cent in price
on acetfunt of the great demand for jel
lies in the refreshment rooms of that
city.- Cargoes, instead of being devo
ted to the uses for which they were
I imported, that of boot and shoo-mak-
ing were bought up by the manufac
turing confectioners for jelly making.
"Darn a fool," says. Harkins, who
was-vexed, to h's wife "So mote it

Nearly fifteen years ago W. B. Dan
iels, now' a member of the jwlico force
of this city, was then Governor" of Ida
ho Territory. At that time a" gentle
man, whoso namo we suppress,' was
then one of tho most prominent, talent

Legislature of that Territory. Both
gentlemen, flic executive duel the legis

One of tho curiosities of tho debate'
on tho Indian appropriation bill in tho
house yesterday Was a speech front
Wright of Pennsylvania, tho "old man
who likes to bo called a demagogue,"
1 . i I oo
in which he opposed the appropriation"
of $5,000,000 for tho non-producing,
non-tax paying Iritlians, while not of
cent was appropriated for tho' working-
men. Wright calls the Indians "tax
eaters," and csfifndtcs that of tho 20"
pcf Indian that is appropriated eVei'V
year by tho United States the Indian
gets $2 and tho officials of the Indian
bureau get $18. During Wright's re
marks memben of the house stood in
breathless attention, and upon his con
clusion, congressmen, with nd respect
for age, shouted 6nlhusiastically;
"Bully for you old nfan."
