Better Go Slow. In al! the varied scene ol life— Its DOfee confusion, turmoil, Mr ifi: — These little words, i. borne iu mind, Would suit right well all human kind— ■■ Go t-lcw!" The fast young man who cuts a dash Upon his -'giA-ei-uor's'' hard eai ne.i cash, Will think when all his money's Bed, This motto should have tilled"bis head — Go slow.

The man of money—he who spend. Hlfl thousands ou his buraea—friends— May sit flown in after years To coin ihis lesson through bis tears— Go slow. The husband who, lo see more of life, Deserts his children, 'mine and wile. Wheu sunk beneath the hand of fate, Will mourn he did not, ere too late—■ Go slow, The wife who always shopping goes, Leaving her children out at toes, Should keep this matter iu her heart, Learn to act a mother's part, ami Go slow. The banker counting cent per cent— The landlord eager (1 r his rent— The clerk behind his mauler's lill — 'Twill suit you all—this lesson will — Go slow.

Taking a pleasure excursion a tew daysslow in company of some ladies, we shaped our coursi towards Onion Valley. Tlilfl valley >8 ritoat-d about 4i miles beyond G'bsonyille, and Es wliai may be called a ridge valley. " Pilot Paab," tin- great landmark to incoming em grants, is at the erst end of it, and the peak of itself is supposed to be in the vicinity oi 10,000 to 12,01)0 feet a ove th* level of the Bea. The valley extends Id a westerly direction by a gentle inclination from the peak, and the eternal snows on the latte-, by their continual drippings, form oue of the sources of the Feather river. Tile valley is quite small, being from one to two hundred yards in width and probably three- quarters of a mile in length, and ending in tht* •west in a canon. In 1851, before Rabbit Creek had an existence, stages wound their devious way over the mountain ridges to Onion Valley. Team.-" alio, of the heaviest description carried an immense quantity of goods to the miners who had loeatud themselves there. At that time everybody worked surface diggings, deep diggings betuir theu unknown. At this day it is entirely ohang od,aud if outward geological indications go for anything, there are no richer mipera'l land-* in California, Half a mile beyond the valley, at Washington Hill .ome ei^ht or ten tunnels are being run and in some of them the bri .'litest proa- pecta ever struck tn our State have been found. It is tbe celebrated Blue Lead, aud the gold is ol the coarsest description. There are probab'y one hundred minTs liviivj in and around tlie valley, and the altitude of the ground on which their cabins rest ia not far fr 9 000 feet above tidewater. At no distant d Onion Valley is destined to be om* ol tbe larg mining towns in the Sierra Nevada. In no place in California does the snow fall deeper or the frost linger longer than in the above place, the form r having been over 20 (eet deep on a level, and th' latter, when people are almost m dting in t • lower country, ccvers the ground evry morning. There is no lack ol the purest air in that region. We heard an incident related by a friend a few days since, which will illustrate the severity ol* the storms which sometimes occur there. Som packers in November,'51, were on their way ur to the valley, and when within two or three mMt>> of their destination were caught in a sno« storm on a mountain ridge, and ere they could cxtricat" themselves or mules, forty of the latter perished, and the puckers were obliged to deposit the pack- in the snow unt:l sprng. We may read of and imagine the horrors uf an Alpine winter, but w> kuow of none worse thau tho-e which occur among ourselves,—Mountain .Messenger. " John Phenix" thus speak* of a juvenile mo si clan whom he encountered in the cars in a journey he recently made to New Orleans :— "He was a seedy youth, with a seal skin cap. a ■Ingulnrly dirty face, a gray jacket of the ventilating order, and a,short but remarkably broad pair of " corduroy corduroys." He wore an enormous bag or haversack about his neck and bore In his hand that most infernal and detestable in etrument, an accordeon. I despise that instrument of music. They pull the music out of it. and it comes forth struggling and reluctant, !ik' a cat drawn by the tail from an ash hole, or h aqutrrel pulled shrieking from a hollow loa; with a ramrod. This unprincipled boy commenced pulling at this thing, and horrifi"d us with th** most awful version ot that wretched " Dog Tray" that I ever listened to." Con'Sumptiox -Medical statistics appear to prove that consumption, where prevalent, originates as often in summer as in winter, and the best authorities declare that it is more common in hot than in cold climates. There is more consumption in the Tropical Indies, botn east and we-4, than in the almost Arctic Canadas, The number or thi- British troops attacked wilh this disease in Jamaica, is annually twelve in one thousand, whib- In Canada it is ouly about six. The English Government bave accordingly resolved upou Hemline their consumptive soldiers to the cold iu preference to the warm climate. 48 Commsrci&L and 87 Clay streets, lieiweeu Front and Battery, SAN FRAA'CTSCO.

The Hi-Ucsf Inhabited Plnce ln GalUuriita.
Taking a pleasure excursion a tew daysslow
in company of some ladies, we shaped our coursi
towards Onion Valley. Tlilfl valley >8 ritoat-d
about 4i miles beyond G'bsonyille, and Es wliai
may be called a ridge valley. " Pilot Paab," tin-
great landmark to incoming em grants, is at the
erst end of it, and the peak of itself is supposed
to be in the vicinity oi 10,000 to 12,01)0 feet a ove
th* level of the Bea. The valley extends Id a
westerly direction by a gentle inclination from
the peak, and the eternal snows on the latte-, by
their continual drippings, form oue of the sources
of the Feather river.
Tile valley is quite small, being from one to
two hundred yards in width and probably three-
quarters of a mile in length, and ending in tht*
•west in a canon. In 1851, before Rabbit Creek
had an existence, stages wound their devious way
over the mountain ridges to Onion Valley. Team.-"
alio, of the heaviest description carried an immense quantity of goods to the miners who had
loeatud themselves there. At that time everybody
worked surface diggings, deep diggings betuir
theu unknown. At this day it is entirely ohang
od,aud if outward geological indications go for
anything, there are no richer mipera'l land-* in
California, Half a mile beyond the valley, at
Washington Hill .ome ei^ht or ten tunnels are
being run and in some of them the bri .'litest proa-
pecta ever struck tn our State have been found.
It is tbe celebrated Blue Lead, aud the gold is ol
the coarsest description.
There are probab'y one hundred minTs liviivj
in and around tlie valley, and the altitude of the
ground on which their cabins rest ia not far fr
9 000 feet above tidewater. At no distant d
Onion Valley is destined to be om* ol tbe larg
mining towns in the Sierra Nevada. In no place
in California does the snow fall deeper or the frost
linger longer than in the above place, the form r
having been over 20 (eet deep on a level, and th'
latter, when people are almost m dting in t •
lower country, ccvers the ground evry morning.
There is no lack ol the purest air in that region.
We heard an incident related by a friend a few
days since, which will illustrate the severity ol*
the storms which sometimes occur there. Som
