The climate, he said, was not unhealthy, being as good, or even better than that of tho valley of tho Mississippi, or the State of Illinois. Tho reports concerning tho srold mines were not exaggerated in the newspapers; that tho supply of gold -"was absolutely inexhaustible, and that, in his opinion, one hundred thousand persons could not exhaust it in ten or twelve years. The gains of miners varied from one ounce to ono thousand dollars per day. Mr. Atherton said that the largest lump of gold he ever saw was seven pounds' weight; it was assayed, and found to be 19 carats fine. He also saw it stated, a few days before he left San Fran- cisco, that one man had gotten 12,000 in six days. Another had obtained 36 pouuds iu one day.

Our friend of the "News," with much os- tentation, parades a long letter, signed by Mr. J. M. Cooper, in which the writer contradicts our statements relative to the fact that the deepest artesian wells in America indicate that the temperature of the earth does not in- crease in the ratio of the depth of the wells. The editor of the "News" expresses great surprise that wo should venture to doubt theliigh authority of Professor Silliman, who has espoused the theory that the earth at its centre, is a mass of melted rocks, hotter than melted iron. We assure our friend of the "News" that we respect Professor Silliman as the most learned and useful man in the Union, and his private virtues as Mr. Cooper justty remarks, excel even his great learning: but we claim foe ourselves the right to think and act independently of the ipse dixit of any man however eminent he may be for learning and virtue. Professor Silliman is mortal and therefore liable to err, especially when he attempts to wander...

w . Singular Iksects. We noticed in the News a week or two since, an account of the appearance of numerous swarms of Beetles in "Walker county. The ac- count was wtftten in such a humorous style, that we supposed it to be intended rather as & humbug upon the big bugs in the political field, than a serious de- scription of natural phenomena. We have however been informed by P. W. Gray, Esq., that myriads of these Bee- tles, about an inch in length, resembling black daw bugs, have appeared in ail the post oak uplands of Grimes, Mont- gomery, Walker and Leona counties. They appear only during the night, and conceal themselves in holes in the ground during the day. About dusk in the evening the air appears to be liter- allyfilled with them, and the noise made by them as they fly through the fo liage, resembles the noise of a violent storm of hail beating upon the trees. They feed upon the foliage of the forests, and as yet, have done no injury to the crops. The hogs, turkeys, and ot...
