We have ;mule out, and this week, enclese to
such of our subscribers, as have not paid us a cent,
during the past two years, their bills for the Ilepor
ter. We do this, expecting too that some attention
will be paid to them: Surely; after furnishing them
with the. paper free years, it is time we began to
think of receiving some compensation for the
amount of labor and money. me have expended.
and they of paying for de. benefit they have re
ceived. We are satisfied, that many of them—we
hope all—need only this hint, to see that they are
committing a wrong in withholding from us, what
is our due, and will promptly antra to.the matter-
If there areany however, who think that a paper
can he printed week after week, and =stained,
without pay from its subscribers we beg leave tO
undeceive them. We 'have tangible evidence te
A paper that is worth taking, is worth pm ing for;
and if any of our delinquent subscribers think they
have not received, during the past two years, An
amount of benefit from the paper equivalent to its
subscription per year, we' will discontinue their
paper with pleasure. One thing is certain, a sub
scriber-who permits his subscription to remain un
paid longer than two years, is no benefit but a bur
then upon Any establishment. It is just such pat
ronage (!) which makes printing in the country an
unprofitable business. It is a wrong system
throughout; one which we shall do our ramoeeto
remedy. Hereafter, whenever any subscriber per
mits his account to remain unpaid two years, we
shall forward him his account, and if it is not paid
within a reasonable time, coiled it—if it iscolleeta
ble—if not, the sooner we find out we are to have
no pay, the better.
Tn the present instances, the accounts fire made
out at the rate of 82 50 per year, to which we are
legally entitled by our terms. If paid by December
Court, we will deduct 50 dentie year. If not paid
by that time, we shall collect the former amount.
We dislike most heartily to see a dun in' a news:
paper. We Abell not inflict one upon our subscri
bers, again, soon. We shall adopt the course we
have stated ; send every one their accounts when
neglected for two years; and if not paid, endeavor
to collect it. If such a course will not procure us
our 'pay, we wilt leave the business to those able
to print a paper upon patronage that never thinks
of4paying. It's neither to our taste.or convenience.
So, " when the bell rings look out for the engine,"
and. keep at a safe distance from the track.
Of course ibis do not concern our promptly pay-
ing subscribers—and we have not a few of such.— ,
Their example is worthy of imitation, as conferring
benefit both to themttelves and to as. They are

The Stemnimist Wyoming•
This boat surprised our. citizet.s, by making her
appearance at this place, on Tuesday week, load

passengers, from the Canal-Letting, at .Tunkhan

...boat started, by gentlemen of this place, was read
ily disposed of here, at 51 50, a ton.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Wyoming made
an excursion to Griffis', at Rummer&ld 'Creek,

of success to the enterprise.

some further details respecting the Esquimau: re

was at Whale: Point, and Sir James. Boss, at Port

and, in fact, there is every geological iorlicalion; of

The story of Mr. Harrison, the Collector, haying,
found gold id the abodes of the Castriat-House, is
something more than a good joke.
But by far the most magnificent discovery is that
recently made upon the radche of Col. Fremont on
the Mariposap River- It is nothing less than a vein
of gold in a sblid roct —a bona fide mine, the fist
which has been found in California. Whether it
was fiat detected by a party 9f &moms or by the
company which Col. F. organised last Spring. and
which has since been working in the same locality,
is a disputed point, though I believe the credit is
doe to the latter. At any rate, the gold is there, and
in extraordinary abundance. I saw some speed
meos which were in Col. Fremont's possession.—
The stone is a reddish quartz, filled with rich veins
of gold, and far surpassing the specimens brought
from North-Carolina and Georgia. Some atones
picked up on the top of the quartz strata without
particular selectioti, yield Sot. of,gold to every Mo.
Col. Fremont informed me that the vein bad bee!
traced for sore than a toile. The thickness on the
surface is two feet. gradually widening as it de
scends and snowing larger particles of gold. The
,dip downward is only about te so that the mine
can be worked with little expense. These an the
particulars first given me, when the discovery was
announced. Still more astonishing facts have just
come to light.

Many persons have made large fortunes by buying
up lots at a lucky time and selling them still More
