A Snooze In a Hammock -- It was one of those steaming, stifling, sweltering hot nights in August, when every breath of air seemed like a young Sirocco, that myself and friend, having exhausted all the usual cooling expedients in the shape of ices, sherry cobblers, a lounge on the battery, coatless, collarless, and all but shirtless, that we resolved in solemn conclave assembled to ''pipe up" for the night in our hammock on the top of the house at our residence in Brooklyn. Twas a soothing idea, cooling in anticipation and delicious in the realization. By dint of our combined ingenuity, our hanging bed soon swung clear, being elevated from the roof about one foot. A long rope secured one end to a neighbor's chimney, while the other was attached to oor flue. Our position was such that we "presented a broad side view both front and rear."

Fort Sacramento, Sept. 3d 1847 Mr. Editor.—Ere this I presume you have been informed of the arrival of this year's emigration from the United States by the overland route, consisting of one lone man: he informs me that he traveled as far as Fort Hall with an Oregon company, and at that point left them and packed through with two men that left here last Spring; he saw fifteen hundred wagons on the road all for Oregon, he did not hear of a single wagon coming to Caliornia. Various reasons are assigned for their makeing this great mistake. A few very bad persons left this country last year of the Genus Horse Thief; they reported throughout the Western states, that California was a miserable country, that it ...
