FRIDAY,. - FEB. 20, 1874. Amber. Amber is a fossil resin believed to be the product of an antediluvian species of pines known asooniferse. It is found in alluvial soils or on the sea-shore, where it is cast up by the action of the waves. 111 tho latter case it is usually clinging to sea-weed, and gen erally rises from the bottom after a severe storm. It is s hard, semi-pel lucid, or opaque substance, tasteless and without smell, except when crusht ed or heated, when it emits a fragrant odor, n inch is 'highly prized by 1110s people, and especially by the Orien tals. A very large proportion of the am ber of commerce is obtained from Prussia, and is found on the shores of the Baltic Sea, being fished for in the surf or dug out of the hillocks of sand which line the coast. This substance is also found on the shore of the Adria tic, at Cape Sable, in Maryland, and to some extent in England and other countries. According to tradition the Baltic is the site of an ancient.forest of immense...

As an advertising medium it is consequently of DOUBLE their value. Special: Legislation. One of the crying evils of the past ten years is special Legislation. It has been indulged in to an unusual ex tent both by Congress and by the Leg islatures of the different States. In Congress it has more frequently taken the form of enactments for the benefit of classes, while in the State Legisla tures, localities and individuals seem to occupy the most attention. Califor nia has happily been spared the mis take of granting special and extraor dinary privileges to corporations that has cost some of her sister States so much trouble, but the practice of pass ing laws that are only applicable to lo calities, and of granting special privi leges to individuals has been far too common. We want uniformity in the law. What is law in one county ...

SATURDAY ...... FEB. 21, 1874. Practical Results of Encouraging Home in dustry. The following comprehensive state ment of the results ot a little invest ment in a manufacturing establish ment in the town of Canton, Ohio, is well worthy of study by the people of soms of the towns of this State. It contains also a good leason for the Grangers and farmers generally of the State. Let them assist to establish jute factories, agricultural implement manufactories sugar beet factories, etc., and the result to the towns and the surrounding agricultural interests will be as they were in Canton. Read the statement: A good illustration of what manu facturers can do for a town may be found in the history of Canton, Ohio, where Ball's reapers are made. When the inventor went there it was one of the dullest and least productive towns iv the State, retrogading in wealth and population. But some of the citizens uppreciatad it and its possibilities of improvement. Ball asked for $10,000 to help start...

An Adventure in North Carolina by Cochero. Several years ago I was traveling through tlie southwestern part of the old dominion with a large and varied .stock of merchandise; such as in those <iays generally composed the .stock in trade of a traveling merchant. The occupation in which 1 was en gaged was generally called peddling, and by most persons was not held in very high estimation, although, for the life of me, I never could see why a traveling merchant should not be con sidered as respectable as a stationary one. Nor why a clerk who manages the ribbons behind a pair of prancing greys, should not be thought as much of as one who flourishes ...

As an advertising medium it is consequently of DOUBLE their value. Reduction of Salaries. Mr. Freeman, in his speech the other day, advocating the passage of the bill for a reduction of the salaries paid to State officials, made a start ling exhibit ofthe extravagance that obtains in the management of our State and county governments. The fact is, nearly everything con nected with the carrying on of our local institutions was provided for In the days when mining the precious metals was the only employment, and speculation ofthe wildest charac ter filled the place of ordinary busi ness. In such times of excitement, when fortunes were momentarily gained and lost, and every one was drunk with the prevailing mania, it wa9 idle to expect that men could be found to perform the plodding duties required by the public without large compen sati...

A Change. The Herald ofllce has changed owners. Tho one who from the out start has borne the care, the anxiety and the expense has gone out, and others havo taken his place. The paper is now under the control and ia the ownership of the business men of the'eity, and will be published in their interest; but it will also advocate the reform movement which has been its guide in the past. Honesty, truth, virtue and justice will be supported in the future, we trust, as earnestly as we know they have been in the past A word in regard to expense may not be inappropriate. Tbe late proprietor has lost money, for many who were in heart with reform and progress, who were in heart with the principles which the paper represented and still represents, sat idle, forgetting that it requires both money ...

asdsad Wendell ... Tho Massachusetts orator has ad dressed a letter to B. F. gutter on the currency question, which is attracting Home attention in financial circles. He writes as follows: Syndice^^ wishes of tbe Bank. In consequence of this dependence a debtor nation should separate entirely its National Currency from its international cur rency, in order te save its home sys tem from foreign interference. I pur pose, therefore, one system of curren cy for home use. and another entirely distinct for use between ourselves and foreign nations. " For home currency X propose as follows: "First—Take from the National Banks all right to issue bills, and oblige them to return what currency they have within a reasonable time. "Accept the present greenbacks in payment of all debts due the Govern ment, and destroy them as fast ac paid in. Second—Let the United States lend greenbacks at-3.65 per cent, per an num to any one who will pledge Na tional bonds or improved land. For bonds thus pledg...

THURSDAY FEB. IST!. The Grangers and Education. It is an enoouraging sie-n that tbe Grangers take an active tsk rest in tho matter of securing a seieiititle. and practical education for their sons, who will follow in their footsteps. The in tluence of this gißaivtic association upon the college curriculum, will soon show itself. It is now, in fact, one of the most powerful allies to modern movement for giving to the course of study in our colleges, less of a classi cal and literary, and more of :i scien tific and practical character. Of all the reforms that the Grangers aro striving to bring about, none i more needed than tfiis, especially in California, If there is one thing that this State needs more than another, it is educated farmers, mitiers, engineers and mechanics, to develop her re sources. That the farmers ure> alive to the importance of scientilic knowl edge of their business, there are ample proofs. Tbe old prejudice against "book farmers" is dying out, and it is hard...
