Tis Distance Lends Enchantment. Il is admitted, soya llie Nonh American, that gold is a very good thing, and that there is gold in California. Rut California is 3,000—6 000 —or 17,000 miles distant, according as we seek it by the nearest overland route, by the islhmus of Panama , or around Cape Horn. Why should a mail have lo go so far lo hunt gold, when he may hunt it so much nearer at home—in Georgia, in North Carolina—-nay, even hard by, in Virginia— or Maryland, it seems, whrre. tomebody says he lias lound a gold mine. If, as ihe Washington Union informs us , Messrs. Heiss, Stockton, &c, at ihe Whitehall Mine, in Virginia, have bilged S9.000 worth of gold as ' the product of the work of five or six hands in live orsixdays; ifsix negroes obtained "25 pounds of gold from ilia (si lo the <hh or 7lh of this month,"—there is as much gold in Virginia as in California; and in one day's journey a man may be in the heart of the placers of tho Ancient Dominion.

Seed Grain steeped in Arsenic, A late number of Ihe London Lancet mentions a practice which is common among the English farmers, of sleeping their wheat in a solution of arsenic before sowing it, with a view ef preventing the ravages of the worm on the seed, and of birds on ihe plant when grown.— The p lan is staled to have proved eminently euccegsful, and of course exerts no deleterious effects on the plant. In Hampshire, Lincolnshire, and many oilier districts where the practice prevails, numbers of partridges, aud pheasants have been found dead in the wheat fields, poisoned by ealing the seed, which lliey had abstracted from the earth. So thorough were the effects of the poison, that some of the flesh of these birds administered lo u cat, caused her to vomit, and to exhibit the usual symptoms attendant on poison. This is certainly a practice to be condemned. We hope that none of our farmers will try the ¦ame trick. We can allord to feed both men and birds.

Latci' from Chagres. By the arrival of the steamship Cresent City at New York, on Sunday last, Jiom Chagres, we have intelligence from the Isthmus to the 0th of January, nine days later. She brings no news from California. At Chagres an agent of the shi p, was despatched to Panama,, to facilitate, if possible, the transit of the Crescent City' s pas-: sengers, and obtain information of the condition of the road, and the slate of matters nt Panama, in reference to the thousands there re presented as wailing conveyance 10 San Francisco. The ngenl arrived in Panama in fourteen days from New York, and found but 200 to 250 wailing there ; and when the Crescent Ciiy left Chagres, there were not over 300 persons on the Isthmus.
