THE SNOW PLOW. —The Directors of the Pacific Railroad Company have had constructed at their work shop in Sacramento a novelty, at least in this section of the country, in the shape of a snow plow. This aparatus runs on two ordinary car trucks, which are entirely concealed from view by the outer casing of the framework. The machine, which is ten feet wide, eleven feet high and thirty feet long, resembles a huge wooden box, made wedge shaped in front, with the shurp point resting as near the ground as practicable for working purposes. The slope of the wedged portion runs up at an angle of about forty-five degrees. On this portion of the aparatus, several feet from the ground, is a large double iron plow. The machine, wheu in Utt, will be placed in front of a loco motive. The wooden incline will raise the snow from the track, and the irou attachment will throw it off 011 either side. soinrwlut MiniUr to ihi' are »ui.l to !<e in use <•!» UM f*i ol tti** .Northern au'o.

'1 lie two mills ol C'alifoi i.ia, at Taylorsvillc ami Santa Cruz, have been but a mere ''drop in the bucket" as it were, as, while they have been con stantly employed, prices of paper still gradually advanced with a scant supply. In 18(J3 the pioneer mill at Ta\ lorsville, manufactured o,ti:)0 reams of news, and i',Blo reams of wrapping. They are doing even better than that the present year, and yet they are unable to lill their orders. We have no report from tho Santa Cruz mill, hut no doubt i y are doing equally as well. The Oregon City mill will o; a with a very liberal prospect for tiie future. The stock on hand is not ol' suUicient ainoiiut to warrant the company in making news paper at i first, but they sire prepared to do so ns soon as tlioy Imeo material. ]{n<;s liavo been uncommonly scarce and high, in all parts of the country t«»r tlic past few years. This being the ease, paper makers have been turn ing attention to the discovery of ma terials suitable for paper stock. All kinds of plants, from those which grow near our own doors to the lux uriant growths of tropical regions, have been experimented on with but partial success; but now it seems probable that for the future, the main source of supply will be the forest. It is at least a centurv, rnd we do not know how much longer ago, since paper was made experiment ally in Europe, from wood; and, notwithstanding repeat 3d improve ments, the requirements of cost and quality have not, until recently, been met. The manufacture of wood pa per is, however, an ticcotnplis'icl fact. There are two large estab lishments, near Philadelphia, where it is curried on. In one of these, a paper containing sixty per cent, of wood pulp is turucd out, nud in the other, which is on uu immense scale ajt excellent paper for printing pur poses, composed ot eighty per cent, wood and twenty per cent straw, is made. The larger and more suc cessful establishment is capable of turning out from 24,000 to 30,000 pounds of pulp daily.— Enterprise. |Us wo ilthy bachelor of Sac ramento having had one or two law suit* for breach of promise, now re plies to any young lady who wishes a " few tuiunte* private conversa tion, "No you don't, titadame.

I am reminded of it by a little story : A colored man, with a loaf of bread and a bottle of whisky sat down to dine by the hank of a elear stream. In breaking bread some of tho crumbs dropped into the water. These were eagerly seized by the iisli. That circum stance suggested to the darkey the idea of dipping tho bread in the whisky ami feeding it to them. He tried it. It worked well. Some ot the fish ate of it, became drunk, and floated helpless on the suil'ue. In this way he easily caught a great number. Hut in the stream was a largo iish very unlike the rest. It partook freely of the bread and whisky, but with no perceptible ef fect. It was shy of every effort of the (l:n lcey to t.iko it. 110 resolved to have it at all hazards, that he might learn its name and nature. Ue procured a net, and after much eflbrt caught it, carried to a colored neighbor, and asked his opinion in the matter. The other surveyed the wonder a moment, and then said: " Sambo, I understands dis case. l)at lish is a mullet-head; it ain't got no brains." "In other words," added tho Judge, "alcohol affects only the brain, and, of coursp, those having none may drink without injury. A storm of laughter ensued, and the moderate drinker soon disap peared. INTERESTING DISCOVERY IX ENG LAND —Some curious discoveries have recently been made at Silehes ter, near Hasingtoke, tho site of the ancient Uritish and Roman capital of Southern Britain. The main street and a street running from it have been laid open, together with two large Roman houses with tessellated pavements. The walls which sur round tho capital wero three miles in length. The site of tho amphi tliatcr has'heen found, and an admis sion pass like opera bono passes of j the present day dug out. Coins I connected with periods anterior to 1 the birth of our Saviour have also 1 been found. A brick has also turned up. on which pome Roman lover has had cut words relating to tuv " 1 *■**.', or injr "girl," Roman toothpick*, car pick*, and aeit-soni Jwvc lievu found, and the wte of a <lrni* l»<i iiiitl« ot oak an inch thick.

COULDN'T STAND IT.—A good sto ry, says an exchange, is told iof a workman in one of the machine shops of Ilnrrisburg, Pa. The other day, one of the hands, a stalwart follow, who had been a decided Rad ical, was observed to be highly ex cited, talking to himself, and occa sionally shaking his clenched list. Finally, he passionately threw down bis tools, and started across tbo room toward a fellow-laborer and a Con servative friend, muttering profanely that he'd stood it long enough, and he'd not stand it any longer. His fellow workman, who bad been watching his motions, and supposing from the violence of his manner that ho was about to commit violence on bis Conservative friend, rushed up to prevent a light, and just in time to hear him exclaim, " he'd been a ltadical all his life, but by Heaven, no set of politicians should ram a nigger down his throat! Here, Jim, give us your list." A PREACHER ox FIRE. —The Xew York correspondent of tho Boston Journal sends the following: "In one of the Presbyterian churches tho other Sunday 'morning, a minister was officiating with nil due decorum and solemnity. All at once ho bc» gan to cut up qneer antics,'and short ly disappeared from public view, to the no small astonishment of his au ditors. The pulpit being n close one boxed upon all sides, and the door shut, the people could.not tell what was going on; but smoke rising from the pulpit gave assurance that there was tiro somewhere, and the excited congregution learnt, after awhile, thut the minister was on tire. It seems that he had carried in his pockets a lot of loose lucifer match" es, and they ignited and set hiiu on fire. Assistance came, and the min ister (tire) was put out.
