This will entitle California, to thr.ee representatives in the United States House of Representa. lives. In the northern mines, or that scope ofi country lying north of San Francisco and Feather river, we give a population of 20,. 000.

Improving the Habits of Bees. The cool audacity of "Yankees, in their interpretation of the Divine injunction to subdue the earth, must be appalling to the mind of a mere routineer. The joke of making an offer to Government to conquer Mexico and put an end to the late war by contract, was one that none but a Yankee could ever have conceived.. John Bull opened his eyes very wide, and was too much aslohished to laugh at such a tremendifous piece of pleasantry. If war, therefore, should ever break out" between the United States and an European government, we have ho doubt that some"enterprising downeaster will propose to make a job of it, and take all the trouble of winding'it up on contract. There is something highly poetical in the audacious practical view which Yankees take of every subject, The national peculiarity whs never more strongly exhibited than in a little pamphlet which fell into our hands the other day on an improved method of manufacturing honey. The hoc, from t...

- New Counterfeits. I i ne Lancaster tsank.—2 s rehet, reissue. The general- appearance of "these counterfeits is good, and well calculated to deceive the unwary. The medallions on the ends, which in most other connterfeils are poorly executed; are in these excellent imitations of the genuine. A close examination will, however, certainly delect the spurious bills. On the true note, around the lower margin, the word " two" is repeated twenty limes, and between each is a small block of white. On the counterfeit, "two";appears twenty-one times. On lh^ upper margin of the genuine, on either side of the " two," is a number of blocks of white, resembling those-in the lower. On the counterfeit, the blocks on the upper right end and the lower left end are wanting, differing in this respect from the good Botes;, The words "on. demand," in the genuine, begin within a sixteenth of an inch from the marginal'linb on-thepeft part of the bill, while in the counterfoil the space is more t...
