Thought! of a Day. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 11 June 1853

Thought! of a Day. If the thoughts which pnsa through the mind of a person in a day eould bo gathered together and placed in the order in which thoy Grist appeared, what a mountain of ideas would be brought to view! They would form a monster ouilb of mental patchwork, checkered with pieces of every shape, size and hue. They would prove time *pnco and order to ie nonenti"? compared with thought. Thu speed with which they travel from place to place ne far eseoeds that of electricity, as the rapidity of motion of that annihilating substance does an ordinary canal boat. One thought ia resting upi-n the edibles for breakfast: thu next in a second of time has traversed the mi i verse, and reached I he snn'a centre, wondering what mado of; while a third is peering into the snow wreaths that circle the cap of tin! peak of jVont Blane. Then follows half a thought on death, and twenty on the means of keeping alive; two on the old Frcsideot and ten on the new*, three on a new coat, and one on ...

Ijste Xntelllffcnee from Cliluo. The San Francisco Herald ha* intelligence from China to the 7th April. Tho progress of the Rebel Kings is alarming to tho old dynasty. They have bono regarded ns a mere band of robbers, whoso operations could not extend beyoud the p-ovince in which they took their rise. They were represented as having no great national end in view tn oLtraet the masses to their standard, and their whole movement was described us simply ono of thoso ephemeral outbreaks which have baen so eummon in China. But the war has become ono of raoos. — The rebels identify their cause with that of the native Chinese against their Tartar rulers, and by this means have excited a it ind of patriotic ardor to rid their country of foreign oppressors. Thousands have flocked to their standard—tlicy Imvo pushed boldly to tho'NA'. conquered or driven before them army after army of the Imperialists, taken province after province and are now iuvesting the great city uf Nanking, if they hav...

SQ.UATTEII DIFFICULTIES. A week or two sincc wo published-a decision of the U. S. District Court" interposing to protect from waste certain property claimed under a Jimeno grant. The Deputy Marshal in that case met with no difficulty in serving the summons. In another similar case the Deputy Marshal, in attempting to 6erve a summons, was resisted, assaulted, and nearly lost his life. Wo find the particulars in the S. F.

When the Marshal appeared among them, he was at once told that he should not serve the summons,and if he attempted to do so they would kill him on the spot. The men made him partake of their meat and drink, and then told him, that a# ho could not serve his paper, he had better leave. This the Marshal concluded to do, and took a steamer bound down.

An Australian Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 11 June 1853

An Australian Picture. The Times and Transcript publishes a letter from a Californinn who sailed some time since. The writer is evidently one of the disappointed ones, and has probably found no flowery path to wealth in Australia, notwithstanding tho gold. The letter is dated Sydney, Feb. 11: "The ship l'actolus arrived in Sydney Nov. Ist. I wish she had never come here. It is the worst place I ever was in; 1 am going to get out of it as soon as I can. Great numbers of the people in this colony have been sent as convicts, so you can judge what the society is here in Sydney and over A'ew South Wales. The tax is very heavy on the mirer—seven dollars and a half for British subjects. Tho tax is double on foreigners. It has been increased since I arrived: fifteen dollars a month on tho Americans. This is laying it on very thick. Pay it you must or go to work on the roads, alongside of criminals. 2'he Americans are getting very strong in numbers in this to be redeemed country. They have b...

Sew Mint Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 11 June 1853

Sew Mint Regulations. Hereafter all silver found in the California gold will bo paid for in standard silver, and gold as heretofore. This is a measure which was much desired by California depositors. The largest issue of new silver coin is to consist of twenty five cent pieces. This new silver work for the mint, it is said will lessen the capaeitv of the mint to coin gold, but it is thought that the assay office in New York, by the conversion of dust into bars and ingots, will greatly lessen the necessity of so much gold coinage, as they can be used fur commeroial purposes. It is said that the assay office will manufacture and stamp bars of §200, $1000. $2000 and $4000 in value, and charge the depositors only the bare cost of their conversion, while hereafter the mint is to charge the depositors one half of one per cent seniorage for the coinage of all gold submitted for th it purpose.

The refusal of the officers of the army to join in the coup d'etat meets with the full approval of the President. So far as Mr. Bartlett's initial point is concorned, it is known that the present administration does not regard it favorably and to this extent therefore, endorses Mr Gray in his refusal to acquiesce in it. It is not so clear, however, that Mr Gray's subsequent course in running the boundary, was in keeping with his refusal to agree with the in : tial - point, as he practically adopted it by running ; the line west of El Paso, precisely where Mr. j Bartlett's line would be carried across.
