Mrs. Scruggins on California.
" It's nothin' but Californy, Crilafor
ny, from mornin' to night," said Mrs
Scruggins, the other day, to a young
friend who had expressed his determi
nation to go to California. "Mr. Smith
is going to Californy, Mr. Jones is go
in' to Californy, Mr. Brown is goin' to
Californy,—Everybody is goin' to Cali
forny, 'cept sensible people, and they
stay at home. Mr. Skinkle had the fever
last winter, and the way lie took on !
I told him to go if he wanted to go! to
leave his friends and the comforts of
life, and launch himself out in the par
rams. amongst the Savagacious ober'.
ginists of the woods, and git himsell
killed and cat up for his trouble. I don't
care. I told lihn if he liked to eat
mules better than beef cattle, if he liked
old dried meat better than fresh : if he'd
rather wear dirty shirts thin clean 'tins;
if he'd rather sleep on the ground than
in a nice feather bed, and if he'd rather
get murdered after he got there, than
stay at home with them that thought
something of him, and keep on livin'—
why then he might go— nobody could
have enny objections! Mr. Shinlcle is
a sensible man and he's made up his
mind to stay at home, end I think a heap
more of him. It is the most funny thing
that the people goin' to Californy nin't
arter gold—there all goin' for their
health—more particularly them that has
families ; and it is distressin' to see the
number of married men that have just
found out that there in a fair way to git
the gallopin' consumption, and nothin'
but a trip to Californy will cure 'em.
But nobody can tell what this world is
comin' to, there is so many revulsions
But what is most surprisin' to me, is
to hear of preachers—them that have
pretended to renounce the pomps end
vainness of this world, in order to pre
pare other people for the next—to hear
of them fittiii' out for Californy,
inin' pistols and bowie knives, and rifles
and nil the time 'bout preachin'
the gospel to the ignited Mexicans and
Ingins that work in the gold mines, end
expatintin' on the good they'll do, the
moral effect their presence 'II have and
all that ! They ain't goin' for gold—of
course not. Mr. Skinkle sed he'd met
a preacher from the east the other day
who ens on his way to Californy. He
had a rifle and all the other fixing' in-
cludin' a patent gold washer and a bob.
tail mule. • He told Mr. Skinkle that his
health was de clinin' with great rapid
ness, that his doctor had told hint to
travel in more gentle climes, so he tho't
he'd cross the rocky mountains and pay
flyin' visit to Californy. He made
Mr. Skinkle promise to call and see
him before he left. Mr. Skinkle did
call, but the preacher was gone, anti
he'd left behind him a bundle of tracts
and a bible in the room nt the hotel—
but the gold washin' machine was gone.
"I do believe that Mr. Smith has
gone clean crazy about Californy. The
other mornin' I ax'd him at breakfast,
if he'd have sugar in his coffee, and he
sed he'd take a thirteen pound lump.
"I notes that most of 'em that is go
in' to Californy, talk about the excitin'
time they'll have on the plains, the buf
faloes they'll kill, the Inguns they'll
scare with their six shootin' pistols, and
the nice, amusin' time they'll have cook
in their own vittals, and (loin' their own
washin', N—, who has bin to San
ter Fe, says its all very nice to talk
about but, comin'to loin' it, Oats quite
another thing. When you've sometimes
to carry wood two miles, water jest as
far arter makin a fire, and upsettin' the
coffee pot once or twice and puttin all
the fire out ; otter forgittin' the bread
in the skillet till it's burnt lip, and arter
fryin' the salt pork, till theres nothin'
but cracklins and greese left—'bout the
time you've done all this. you'll wish
you was home, whir you could git some
civilized vittals and a femenine woman
to cook 'eni for you.
" If Mr. Skinkle had went to Califor
ny, how I'd like to seed him settin' on a
log by the river, wnshin' his own clothes
with his green specs on the tip of his
nose, a piece of yeller soap in his hand,
rubbiti away for life—what a pictur'
he'd make !
"Actor all, gold don't make people
happy ; men will work, and scuffle and
toil, day and night, for years and years
sacrifisin' comforts and friends, and ev
ery sociable tie—and for what 1 That,
in their old age, the children they have
neglected, the relations they have slight
ed, may count the hours that may re
main before they may come in posses
sion of the money thus obtained. You
tell me my dear boy, that you're goin'
to Californy'! Take my advise and
stay at home. If you can get rich with
out loosin' your respectability, and with
out making a miser of yourself, then
your money may be a blessin' to you
and not a curse, and you will be really
happy—for I take it, happiness is deli
vated from a consciousness of havin'
done what was right towards men, and
what is your duty to your maker !
