The rulers of a great peoplo cannot act

with nn intellect to appreciate, and a soul
to leel the bcnclits conferred utiou tho

She is tho mistress of tho seas, and di

tho resolves of Congress, givin" us 1111 in-

which the sheet was printed. The report

a decreo that in consequenco of the pres

Tho Packet contains a great deal of simi

can easily conccivo the eagerness with
which the paper was read at the period of
Down and Up.
In tho year 1840, a young 'man who was
rich, and engaged in a lucrative business
in Cincinnati, beenmo enamored of a beau
tiful and amiable girl the daughter, by
the wav, of weidthy parents and after a
brief courtship, married hor. Ho loved
her dearly. She loved him dearly. A for
tune of happness seemed in store for them;
but evil days came, and after a brief but
violent struggle with fortune, tho young
man became bankrupt, lie was left with
out a dollar, but not without a hopo. The
gold mines of California -were opn to the
adventurous and to the industrious. He
would leave his beautiful wil'o and seek
its glittering shores, whei ho would ro
maii! until his fallen fortunes were revi

executed, lie came to Culiforuia, but the
cloud still hung over him. Ucwas active,

golden harvest in abundance, his every
project failed. For eight years ho con-

A few weeks ago ho was at Folsom street
wharf upon the arrival of a mail steamer,
and among tho passengers who came
ashore, he caught 11 glimpse of a richly
dressod lady whom he thought ho knew.
He followed hor to a hotel, got a fair view,
and recognized her as his wife whom he
had not s?on for eight years. He was
poorly dressed, but his affection conquered
his pride, and he immediately made him
self known to her. Tho recognition was
followed by a beautiful exhibition of una
bated and unfaltering love. Tl:e lady's
parents had died, leaving her an heiress of
great wealth. She had not heard of her
husband for eight years, and, fearing for
his safety, sho resolved to visit this State
and make inquiries for herself. The lady
closed her coi;vets.ition with her husband
by putting her arms about his neck, and
saying, 'Now dear George, we can go home
