In view of the rapid increase of
the small pox in California, and the
consequent dangers of its spreading
to Oregon, we deem it proper to sub
mit the following from a leading San
Francisco journalist, to our readers.
Since the discavery of vaccination,
says the Butletin, the small pox, as
an epidemic disease has been divested
of nearly all its terrors. This simple
preventative is so effectual that it is
criminal to neglect it. ReVaccina
tion should be tried in all cases where
more than seven years has intervened
In a certain proportion of these cases
the susceptibility to variola has has
returned; and this fact can only be
ascertained by the trial of vaccination
Mild cases of varfolold'are frequent-'1
ly found when the irifluence of vacci
nation has been portly lost. But
even in these instances, without vac
cination, the disease would have been
small pox. The following interesting
facts about vaccination, are taken by
the Medical Gazette from the report
of Drs. Seaton and Buchanan on the
state of public vaccination in London
and on the recent epidemic of small
pox, appended to the sixth report of
the Medical officer of the Privy coun
cil for 1SC3:
" la the course of our school inqui
ry, we obtained facts that corroborate
in the strongest way, the law of con
ncc'ion between deficient vaccine scars
and post-vaccinal small pox. Dy
showing how much small pox has pre
vailed in the vaccinated children, the
facts we are going to cite would be
of themselves a sufficient condemna'
tion of much of the London vaccina
tion. We found 88 children scarred
by small pox, out of the 40,570
school children who bore vacine scars.
This is at the rate of 1.78 per 1,000
of vaccinated children. Excluding
infants schools, and looking only to
those children whose ages had given
them longer exposure to small pox
it was found :
First With respect to the quality
of the vaccine scar, that out of each
thousand children with typical scars,
1.22 were pitted by small pox ; out
of a thousand with tolerable scars,
the per centage pitted by small pox
Was 2.35; and out of a thousand with
bad marks 7.O0 were pitted by small
Second As for the protective in
fluence of the quantity of vaccination
in the individual, it Was further ascer
tained that of those children Who had
four scars,whatever their quality, 0.67
only per thousand were pitted by
small pox; of those who had three
scars, 1.42 in the thousand were so
pitted ; of children with two marks
2 49 in the thousand were scarred;
whilst those children who had only
one vaccination mark were scarred
with small pox at the rate of 6.80 in
At the one extreme of goodness,
continues the report, with four or
more typical scars, but 07 hundredths
in a thousand children were scarred
by small pox, while at the other ex
treme of badness, with one bad scar
only,19 per 1000 were scarred. The
best vaccination, therefore, was more
than thirty times as protective as the

HOW A MAJf MADE HIS KOIITUXE.
tiY A 41.
" Many people have Inherited a
great name from their parents and
friends ; why cannot I make a great"
reputation by my own industry jjnd
These words were spoken by a
young man of respectable appearance
yet really in Want, as he walked. One
auttimn morning In the year 1781 i
up Antin street, in Paris, and ap
proached the stately house of a great
banker. On . ringing the door bell
his heart beat with fear and anxiety
when he was met by a servant in
livery who asked him rather bluntly
what he wanted.
"I wish to speak to Mr.Perrcgaux,"
replied the young man. "Is teat
homer' ' '
The answer was affirmative, ard
the porter led him up the' broad,
marble stairway to the upper story,
where the young man was admitted
into a splendid anteroom, ornament
ed with paintings and statues. lie
quietly took a seat in a corner and
had hardly the courage to Face the
great men who Went in and out of
the banker's room. lie thought of
his home in the country, of his dfe-i
parture from his beloved parents, of
their prayers and their blessings. He
recalled his mother's last Words :
" What will you do in Paris, my son?
stay here. You have your homej
though it is a poor one." And then
he thought of his own answer : " Let
me try my fortune, dear mother, in
order that; I may share it with you
and my dear friends." " But," an
swered she, " fortune does not al
ways visit those who seek it." To
this he replied : But it never Beeks
those who never seek it.' Well,
go," said the tender-hearted mother,
" go, and if you don't succeed, do not
be ashamed to return to ns. Your
father's house and the arms of your
mother will always be open to you."
Mr. Perregaux Was reading a let
ter When the young man was ad
mitted to his presence, and hardly
noticed tile Unassuniing stranger.
" Do you wish to speak to raej
young man ?" said the banker in a
friendly way. " If so, tell me in
what respect I can serve you.'
" Mr. Perregaux," said the young
man, looking plainly and calmly in
his face, " 1 have neither fame, nor
rank, nor fortune but industry,
strength, and a strong will to work.
Can you not give me a place in your
great business house ? even the most
insignificant one would 6ult me."
" What is your name?" a?ked Mr.
Perregaux, Who could not keep his
eyes from the attractive features of
his young applicant, and read in his
clear eye discretion and fidelity.
" Jacques Lafiite," was the answer.
" Your age ?''
" Eighteen years," replied the
young man. 1 was born on the 20th
of October, 1799."
' Are you a Parisian 1" inquired
the banker further.
" No, sir, I am from Bayonne.
My father is a carpenter, and hasten
children to care for. My object is
to find a place where I shall be able
to support my father's family.'
' A noble undertaking, young
man" replied the banker j " but I
regret to say that I have no place
vacant for you.. I am sorry for this-.
Perhaps a later application would
find me able to receive you." .
Evervthing seemed to swim be
fore LafHte's eyes. He scarcely
knew how to reach the door. His
knees trembled as he descended the
marble staircase, and with a slow
step he went down into the street
The refusal was almost more than he
Could beaf. Yet he summoned cour
age and started off.
dust as he reached the street, he
saw something shining in the sand
that had collected near the steps. It
was only a pin, yet he took it up and
stuck it in his coat. This little act,
apparently unseen by anybody else
in the world, decided his whole fu
ture. Mr. Perregaux stood at the
window, and, without designing it,
happened to see the refused applicant
pick something up, and wondered
what it was. When the young man
stack it in the left breast of his coat,
the banker thought it was a pin.
Men who have great knowledge of
human nature, like Mr. Perregaux,
understand the meaning of seemingly
insignificant things, and how far
small actions go toward the jnter-
pretation of character. So he said
to htmself : "The man who will not
refuse to pick up a pin must certainly
have some habits that will be of great
I use if be ever has an opportunity to
enjoy them." 1
He quickly opened the window
and called yoong Jacques
The yotitjg man quickly returned,
hastened up stalfs, land was soon
again in the presence of the bankef.
: " Do yoa have the goodness," said
Jacques, "to comply with my re
. What makes you so decided ?'
replied the banker.
" From the fact that yotl haVe re
called me,4' was the answer ' I be
lieve yon would not have done it if
you had not wished to accept my ap
plication.", - " Quick powers of observation,
love of order and economy," replied
Mr. Perregaux, in a friendly way,
4f Avill make a good business man.
Go. into my couating-house ; I will
descend as soon as possible and give
you a little business to attend to."
From this hour young Lafitte was
in Perregaux's counting house. His
industry and fidelity helped him in
every respect. His punctuality won
him the confidence of his employer.
His zeal and progress increased from
day to day, so that he soon excited
the attention and admiration of his
companions. In a feW years he be
came a bookkeeper, and afterwards
The French revolution broke out,
and the new order of things which
called Perregaux to the Senate, com
pelled him to commit hi3 business
largely to the hands of some co
laborer. He took Lafitte in as his
partner, and as the sphere of the lat
ter was now larger, he had more op
portunity to exhibit his business tact
and energy. In the last years of the
empire a new sphere of life was
opened to him. In 1809 he was ap
pointed director of the Bank of
France. After that he was made
President of the Chamber of Com
merce, and thus he came into intimate
relations with the most influential
people of the country.
The decline of Napoleon's poWer
brought him into honorable political
positions. Ite acquired the confidence
of the entire city, and indeed of the
entire country, in consequence of his
wise and .judicious counsel for the
government of the city. His dear
parents in Bayonne Were still living,
and he supported them all the time
in the most handsome way possible ;
and after his mother became a widow
he took her to his home in Paris.
Many young men of talent owed
their prosperity to him, as he started
them in business. He supported a
great many in their studies at his
When Louis 3Vlll. was compelled
to flee before the advance of Napo
leon at the beginning of the " Hun.
dred Days," he committed his entire
private fortune to Lafitte ) and Na
poleon, too, placed his fortune in
Lafitte's hands. Thus the great
banker had for some time in his own
keeping the property of both rivals
to the French throne.
After Pari3 was captured, In The
year 1815, he advanced two millions
of francs to the State, which was
compelled to give that much to the
allied hosts. One hundred thousand
francs were appropriated to him as
director of the bank of France, but
Lafitte refused to receive it during
the laborious years of the adminis
tration. Nearly the whole time of the re
storation he was a member of the
Chamber of Deputies, and one of the
most worthy of the number. His
parliamentary activity was distin
guished by his warm patriotism, no
bility of character and acute under
standing. He always subjected his
own interests to the general good. In
spite of the displeasure in which the
family oF Marshal Ney were, he per
mitted his only daughter to marry
Ney's son, the Prince of Modena.
He reached the climax of his polit
ical prominence in the July revolu
Hon. Without him, Louis Phillippe
would never have ascended the throne.
His political opinions were very de
cided, and if we cannot approve of
some of them, we certainly cannot
help admiring his honor and integrity,
lie was a member of Loui3 Phillippe's
Miuistry, and had charge of the
finances of France ; yet this lasted
but a short time, a9 his views did not
agree with those of the King. He

Lafitte died on Easter-day, 1844,
amid universal regret. The French
people had found in him a true friend,
and his name will ever be held by
them m great respect.

A Singular Story. The body of
Miss Kate Grnpper, an unfortunate
young lady who committed suicide a
short lime ago by leaping from the
bluff at Fort Pickering into the Mis
sissippi river, was recovered. A
curious story is told relative to the
recovery of the bodyi It appeared
that the uncle of Miss Grupper,
to whom she sent her last letter,
offered 8100 for the recovery of the
remains of the deceased. This re
ward excited the Ingenuity of a young
man who is engaged in the vicinity
of the place where the sad tragedy
occurred. He had read or heard of
an experiment relative to dead bodies
in Water, to the effect that if a loaf
of bread, charged with quicksilver,
floated about the place where the
body had disappeared, the loaf would
immediately sink when it came over
the place where the body had lodged
at the bottom of the Water4 He tried
the experiment and declares it was
successful. He waited patiently al
most night and day for developments,
and while on the watch one afternoon,
he heard a loud noise like the dis
charge of a submarine cannon, and to '
his astonishment the body almost
immediately floated to the surface
of the water where the loaf sank
He managed to tow the body ashore,
and then informed the friends of the
deceased of the discovery he had
made-, and the remains W'ere con
veyed to the residence of her uncle.

MrSUEL LotEfc, THE TRAITOR.
Not long since, this scoundrel went
into a coffee-house in the City of
Mexico. He called for refreshments,
and was promptly waited upon. He
arose and proffered his attendant
money. The answer was t " No, sir,
we cannot take money from base
traitors ; and in order that no honest
man may ever put this polluted glass
to his lips, I shall crush it." He
dashed it against a wall ind it fell in
fragments. A large number of per
sons were in attendance, and a gen
eral shout of applause rose from the
crowd, irrespective of political pref
erences. The Mexicans hate the
modern Judas, and Americans might
learu a lesson in this from them.
A Nice Place. A correspondent
writes of the stale of society at Oma

the following choice parasranh t
The state of society here could not

thing. To call a man "sharp," -or
"tricky," is to pay him the highest
compliment. Dissipation of all kinds
is general. The young gentlemen do
not : hesitate to visit houses of the
detni inonde in broad day light, and
even to escort them to church. In

Books are not made for furniture,
but there is nothing else that so beau
ti fully famishes a house. The plain
est row of books that cloth or paper
ever covered, is more significant of
refinement than the most decorately
carved etagere or sideboard. . r
Give us a house furnished with
books rather than furniture I Both,

To spend several days in a friend's
house, and hunger for something U

Is it not pitiable to see a man
growing rich, augmenting the com
forts of home, and lavishing and
wasting his money on ostentatious
upholstery, upon the table, upon
everything but what the soul needs 1
We know of many and many a rich
man's house where it would not bo
safe to ask for the commonest Eng
lish classics. A few garnished an
nuals on the table, a few pictorial q
monstrosities, the latest sensation

no essayists, no historians, no travels
or biographies, no curious legendary

Books are the windows through
which the soul looks oat. A house
without books is like a room without
windows. No man has a right to
bring up his children without sur.
rounding them with books, if he has
the means to buy them. It is a
wrong to his family. Children learn
to read by being in the presence of
books. The love of knowledge convs
from reading, ar.d grotvs upon it.
And the love of knowledge in a young
mind is almost a warrant against the
inferior excitement of passion and
Let lis pity thesrj poor rich men
who live barrenly in great bookless
houses 1 Let us congratulate the
poor that in our day, books are so
cheap that a man may every year add
a hundred volumes to his library for
the price of what his tobacco and beer
would cost him. Among thg earliest
ambitions to be excited in clerks,
workmen, journeymen, and indeed,
among all that are struggling up ia
life from nothing to somethings is that
of owning, and constantly adding to
a library of good books. A liltlo
library, growing larger every year, is
an honest part of every young man's
history, while he walks through life.
It is a man's duty to have books. A
library is not a luxury, but one of the
necessaries of life. q
The marl pits of New Jersey
are full of fossil remains. A cor
respondent of the New York Times
reports of those about Squankum.
The earth is removed to the depth of
eight to twelve feet, when a stratum
of excellent marl of unknown depth
is laid bare. Between the stratum
of marl and the stratum of micaceous
clay many sharks teeth, large and
small, are found, in a most perfect
state of preservation. The size va
rics from a cat's claw to others as
long as a man's thumb, and ; so per.
feet is the preservation that all the
fine serrature on the edges appear as
sharp as on the tooth of a living ani
mal. Large pieces of cuprolites, or
petriSed macure of the animals,
doubtless to which those formidable
teeth belonged, are frequently exca
vated; and there was brought to the
office of the Times a large and inters
esting specimen of petrified wood,
which shows the concentric circles, or
annual layers, as distinctly as they
can be perceived in the wood of a
tree just felled.
