Trout and Salmon.
From the Sacramento Record-Union.
Enthusiastic disciples of Izaak "Wal
ton, who yesterday returned from the
Government fishery reservation on the
McCloud, report that the salmon there
have commenced taking bait, and the j
large brook trout, weighing from one- i
quarter of a pound to four pound, and
also thesplendid "Dolly Varden" trout, j
similar in size, are plentiful, and can be j
caught in sufficient numbers to satisfy
those who would make them captive.
During the next three or four weeks
the sahuon and trout can be caught
f reely with hook and line at the fishery,
as the fisher may elect casting his line
into the centre of the stream for salmon,
or in the rapids and pools for trout, and
those who delight in angling cannot do
better than take advantage of the oppor
tunity, as, after the weather becomes
warm, the trout will leave for the head
waters of the stream. The fishing
grounds can be reached by taking the
cars to Redding, and then going by
stages twenty-three miles direct to the
point of destination. Livingston

A shoe-dealer of Cheyenne re
turned from Dead wood on the j3th,
with four pounds of dust. He saw no
Indians on the return trip. He is
reliable authority for the statement
that the mines are exceedingly rich
and gives instances that came under
his own observation, of as high as
three pounds of dust for five men's
work in one day. Montanians are
buying claims at high prices, pro
nouncing them superior to anything
in that Territory. There are at
present from 4,000 to 5,000 men on
the creek and its tributaries.
Blaine's physicians report his
condition as favorable, and he is
rapidly gaining strength.
The United States Supreme
Court on the 13th decided that the
anti-Chinese immigration' laws of Cal
ifornia are unconstitutional. The
Court held that the statutes of Califor
nia hi this respect extends far beyond
the necessity in which the right is
funded, if it exists at all, and invades
the rights of Congress to regulate com
merce with foreign nations, and is
void. Mr. Justice Miller
delivered the opinion.
According to the telegraphic
dispatches Blains stock is " way up"
at Cincinnati. The convention is
the largest and most excited crowtl
ever congregated at Cincinnati.
Everything at fever heat, but little
acrimony, and general good feeling
is exhibited. The Herald still thinks
that Conkling will be nominated,
and that the Pacific States and Ter
ritories be the first to break for him.
The "World's Cincinnati special thinks
the race will be between Blaine and
Conkling, and Bristow and Morton
will be failures. The Times of Cin
cinnati, thinks that Blaine will cer
tainly be beaten after the third bal
lot. The struggle is to be between
Morton and Conkling, with Bristow
and Hayes running a waiting race.

well-known agricultural agitator has made

papers should pay promptly, for the
pecuniary prospects of the preys have ft
peculiar power in pushing forward public
prosperity. If the printer is paid prompt

prompt-paying patrons, he puts his
pen to the paper m peace, his parar
graphs are more pointed, he paintg his
pictures of passing events in more pleasant
colors, and the perusal of his paper is of
more pleasure to his people. Paste this
piece of proverbial philosophy in some
place whero all persons can perceive it.
it?It is not the polished orator
whoshapes public opinion, but the quiet
editor, whose words go out to the public
ear without parade or ceremony. The
orator may please the ear or tickle the fan

the mind, and carries to every household a
fund of knowledge. The orator, by burn
ing words and impassioned eloquence,
may drive men to a sense of duty; but an
editor if he be true to his profession, at
tracts men by the presentation of his .
thoughts which appeal to the nobler qual

orator drop from the lips and are lost,
while the words of the editor drop from

truths conveyed, the3T pass current every

wields a powerful influence. He c:mtxaltt
