Mr. George Goss, of Jackson, Mich, who has just returned from Pike's Peak has given us, says the American Citizen, a full account of how things are managed there. He says he was one of the first men in Gregory’s diggings after the discovery wa« announc^, and re* mained some three weeks. At the outset, the dirt was brought down from the mountains and yielded, apparently, about 15c to 30c per pan of fine gold.— This prospect induced him to buy a claim, and the day after he bought it the yield of gold decreased, and finally disappeared altogether. The truth then flashed upon his mind—the claim was *^salted." Upon examination it was found that the suppose d gold was just no gold at all but a sort of mineral sub stance which was deposited and dug into the earth by the speculators to dupe people with. Every man that bought a claim while he was there, was s< Id in the same way. Mr Goss was at the mines when Horace Greeley arrived there. Mr. Greeley dined at their camp and made a speech there in the evening. Mr. Goss says that Greeley was Fess than one. day in the “diggings,” and dve days or so at Denver City. The reports of Mr. Greeley about seein£r the gold dug, are very amusing to Pike’s Peakers. It seems that speculators got hold of Gre eley, and first took him to a claim •‘saftfd” with the pyrites or false gold where they washed their largest >ield. Then they told Mr. Greeley to dig up some earth anywhere in the diggings and they would find gold in it.— Greeley dug some earth and Gregory washed it. It yielded from ten to 15c per pan. Greeley was satisfied—so were the speculators; but Greeley’s back was hardly turned when it leaked out that Gregory had the “gold” secreted in his sleeve, and allowed it to sift into the pan while he was washing the dirt.— So it seems for once that the editor of the N. Y. Tribune was pretty effectually sold. Mr. Goss says that the speculators are mostly Southern men. who have regular ^encies in the Territories and States, and carriers, who distribute all the big humbugs they manufacture — Grregory’s diggings was almost deserted when he left. As soon as one report was exploded another was started, and thus the poor fools who honestly seek gold were kept “toting’’ from one place to another. Mr. G. discredits the statements made in the letter of Warren Green, published three weeks ago, and for very satisfactory reasons. Green says he is going to buy up all the claims he can get and keep them, &c. Mr. Goss says the law of miners is that no man shall keep but one claim at a time, unless he discovers the “lead’’ when he may keep two claims. This and other things seem to cast a shade of doubt over Green’s statements. Mr. Goss says there are hundreds of poor fellows there who are nearly starving and can get nothing to do. 'I'he claim^owners do not wish to hire for they cannot dig good gold enough to board a man. One intimate friend of his bought a claim for $250 cash, and $2,000 to fee paid when dug out of the claim. He worked about two weeks, and only made from 5e to 15c a day of good gold, and gave up the claitD minus his time, board and the $250. Mr. Goss says he is fully satisfied tlkat tbejeis act gol4 enough ia all the country to pay for working any claim and he prospected thoroughly.— He says winter will set soon in there, and the suffering will then be immense. We have given the substance of the conversation with Mr. Goss (who had no expectation of its being published .) as near as we can recollect, and give it as a set off to the gold stories of interested speculators set afloat through the pa* pers» ______ _______ “ S un-S truck”—A C in c in n a ti P an ic . The late dreadfully hot weather caused a number of cases of sun stroke in Cincinnati, and, says the Times, apanic on the subject ensued ;—>every person taken sick, everybody in the least “ under the weather” was pronounced affected with sun-stroke and dealt with accordingly. Mrs. Jones is troubled with the hippo. She walks down to Fifth street market one forenoon to buy a quart of blackber* ries. and after she had purchased the ar* tide she imagines serious internal derangement, and resting her head against the tail of a market wagon, gives one of her usual grievous grunts. What’s the matter?’’ enquired fifty tongues. The lady is sun*struck,” is the response. Mrs. Jones is instantly seized and carried into the first drug store, and by the time she gets there she is satisfied in her own mind that she is sun-struck. Ice is applied to her head, wet rags are wrapped around her wrists, and an immense amount of ice water poured down her throat, while a gaping crowd press around her so closely as to prevent her from receiving fresh air. The poor wo* man is nearly killed, and finally conveyed home in a carriage, more dead than alive. Mr. Smith is a fat man. His corpulence is genuine, for he never indulges in strong drinks. The weather gets so hot, however, that Mr. Smith is in mis* ery. He drinks ice-water until he is bloated into excruiiating misery. Contrary to hia general habits, be persuades himself to try a change of drink He takes a cobbler. [For the benefit of the verdant, we will state that a cobbler is a mixture of strong liquors, sliced pineapple, or berries and ice.] The cobbler proves refreshing to Mr Smith, particularly as he drhiks it through a straw He feels it coolins: him “ all the way down.” He takes another, and then starts for his place of business. He proceeds but a few steps, when he experiences strange sensations. He has an irresistible d ’sposition to hiccup. 1 hen he gets a little weak in the knees, and then his head begins to swim. He walks as far as he is able, and suddenly tumbles upon the sidewalk. Sun struck!” shouts the crowd. Mr Smith is gathered up and carried into the shade. Brown opens his shirt bosom. Thompson rubs ice over his forehead; and Splash dashes a bucket of water over his form. Smith don’t revive and a man is hurried off after a doctor. A second, a third and a fourth bucket of water is dashed over him. and then he opens his eyes, looks about him, and asks, “ What's the matter?” “ My dear sir, be quiet—you have been sun-struck.” Young Snubbs has been on a “ gay old spree’’ all night. He does not leave his debauched companions until long after sun-up, and then attempts to stagger to his lodgings. Crossing a street he loses his balance and falls. The people soon flock around him, and the more benevolent pick him up. What’s the matter ?” inquires a number. “ The young man is sun struck,” is the answer. Snubbs hears all this, and at once gets an idea. “ Sun-struck” will be a fine excuse for absence from business.— He allows himself to be carried into a store, suffers the usual drenching, and then permits himself to be conveyed home dreadfully affected with sunstroke And such were hundreds of cases of sun-strokes. If a child stumped its toe and fell, sun-stroke was the cause. If a woman fainted—sun-stroke! If a man staggered—sun-stroke! If a person got sick—sun-stroke! If an individual died —sun-stroke ! And if a poor loafer, who had been swallowing deadly doses of whisky for months and year.*?, was found dead on the highway, the coroner’s jury was sure to return—sun-stroke! In short, the unfortunate sun was made responsible for all kinds of diseases And no matter what the cause of death —measles, consumption, heart-disease, mumps, or aught else—those were found who, with solemn face and out-spread hands, exclaimed— “Sun-struck!” ________ 5 ^ We wish some of those who have so much to say about the church being a good enough temperance society for them, would go into the rum shops and seek to win the lost into the church.— It is lazy, cowardly or dishonest for a professor of religion to daily ask God to advance the interests of his Zion, and not aid Him by works. A darkey’s instruction for putting on a coat were: ‘“Fust de right arm, den the lef, and de» gib one general con-wulshuR/” Life tiisuranCds. Mr. SkipstifF was sixty years old last week, and his life insurance had just expired. Not being in the best of health, nor quite so young as he had been, he considered it doubtful whether he could get his insurance renewed on as favorable terms as before, and he informed us that he hit upon an expedient which he thought might result favorably to himself. He passied the insurance office every morning, and whenever he observed any of the officers looking out of the windows, or walking along the street, he would maliage, by a great mustering of his energi^, to strike into a sort of trot whicfc he intended should convey the idea t t a t file was about the briskest man of sixty in the city. “ I succeeded at last,” said he, triumphantly displaying the writings, “ but it nearly cost me my life. I tumbled down on the ice, half a dozen times, to the great peril of my neck and shanks, but fortunately got no severe bruise, and attracted extra attention. * How smart SkipstifF i s !’ said the President, as I passed him in a hurry, one morning. ‘ Call after him,’ he said to a companion. ‘Here,SkipstifF!’ I went back. ‘Skip, my boy,’ said the President, ' you’re getting nimble. Health pretty good ‘ Never better. Lively as a buck.’ ‘ So I see By the way, Skip, do you know y^)ur insurance has expired ?’ * Is it ?’ said I, pretending indifference. * Better Knew, hadn't you ?’ ‘ Wel^jl don’t know. I don’t need it. Live tn fe ^ r ty years yet. Brisk as a goat.’ And I then began to caper, slightly, to give him an idea of my immense animal spirits and power. He stared—ahem-med a little, took me in. and / took him in—^got my life insured for twenty years on better terms than before! Ha, ha! What do you think of that, eh ? Nothing like asmrance.*' And away went Skipstiff, with a short lame trot,.stifF and slow, resembling that of an anweut village horse turned out in the road to be stoned and die. SkipstifF may be seen on ’change every day. _______ ________ A F a rm e r ’s S t o r v .—At the Woodbury plowing match a few days ago. Mr. anfecdOTe:' ’ “ Ha*og drained a field where nothing had ever grown before, I was standing near looking at a crop I had there, when a neighboring farmer came up, and said to me, ‘ That is a bootiful crop! How did eeget sur?’ I replied‘Brains-’ (Laughter.) ‘Wat! manure the field wi, brains?’ (More laughter.) The fact was, I had drained the field; so I said, ‘ Yes.’ (Renewed laughter.) He replied, ‘Lord, yer honor, where did ee get um ?’ (Roars of laughter )” The theatres in Paris, are mercilessly ridiculing the Austrian army, officers and soldiers alike. Pooor Gyu-lai comes in for a large share of the sarcasm. In one picture he is represented with a forocious-looking moustache, the two end.Tof which are at least a foot in length, whilst a sort of pointed little cap, with a feather in it, is perched just upon the apex of the Austrian General’s cranium. Well, turn this pretended portrait upside down, and you find before you an exact representation of an ass's head, of which the long moustache ends form the ears, and the little cap the muzzle, while the feather is metamorphosed into a very becoming wisp of straw! In another caricature, which originally appeared in the Charivari, but is now for sale in all the print shops, Gyulai is represented as holding a confab with the goddess of Victory, who very pertinently says : “ My good sir, you have a great deal of impudence to be constantly talking about me in your dispatches! I don’t know you, General! I never heard of you!” 0 :^ John Schrepple is a Dutchman, living between BlufFton and Lockport, Indiana, of whom unpleasant things are said. On the Fourth of July, John and his wife were hoeing corn in the field, when he saw the Steiner balloon passing over. Not being posted up in aerial navigation, John thought the last day or the comet had come, rushed up to his wife, went down on his marrowbones, and btgj;ed her forgiveness for all the whippings he had given her; and then turned to heaven with prayers and hasty confessions of manifold sins. A neighbor who witnessed the scene describes it as being rich. John who is rather unpopiilar among his German neighbors is daily subjected to a roasting on his fright, and is often reminded that a guilty conscience makes cowards of us all. The New Gold Elxcitement. Private letters have been received and published In New York confirming, what at first was regarded as doubtful intelligence respecting the alleged extensive gold discoveries in the district of Chiri-qui, in New Granada. These letters are from parties living or sojourning at “ Boco del Toro,” or Chiriqui, on_ the Atlantic, and are dated July 8, 1859.-=^ They represent that within the previous three weeks a new El Dorado had been discovered. The Indian cemeteries of that country which contain the remains of tribes long since extinct, were found to contain immense wealth, in the shape of gold trinkets or idols which, according to the customs of those tribes, ap pear to have been buried with their owners. These figures and images lie four or five feet below the surface, and are found, often in considerable quantities. L i f e P r e s e r v in g S t .\t e R ooMs — A trial was made in New York Harbor, i few days since, of a new life preserving state-room. There are two pattern.'? — one cylindrical, and the other square.- The former is intended for sea going_ vessels, the other for the navigation of our inland waters. The Sun describes the former, thus: “ It is about ten feet long By over six in diameter, the ends sectioned off on each side and bearing rudders, and the body of the concern cylindrical. On entering this machine, which is intended never to be fastened to the ship on which it is used, we found inside accomodations for ten people, composed of beds, a bedstead lounge, lockers, water tanks, lamps &c., making it altogether an agreeable place.

Their demeanor was commendable, and undoubtedly did much to quiet the fears and excitement of the timid. Had there been any confusion and excitement, the boats wonlcj have been swamped and many lives lost. ifornia miners will soon find it out. In the meantime these golden figures, which have at all times been discovered in smal ler quantities, offer a comparatively inexhaustible field for working, and much easier to be extracted than California or Australian gold. Not only the Cemetery of Hugaba, but also the extensive ones of the Bogueto and the liuaccas, five or six miles from there, but hundreds of other ones, to this day untouched and scattered all over this extensive and unknown region, both on the north and south sides of the Cordillera, are full of such relics.

It is very certain that they were reached through this lagoon,’’ The arrival of a quantity of these quaint specimens in New York, which have been on exhibition in the Broadway jewelry stores, and the assurances of respectable parties as to their genuineness, have assisted to increase the excitement which such discoveries naturally p r o d u c e . _____________ P addy’s E p ita ph.—The following epitaph is furnished by an ‘‘Irish Gintle-man:” Here I lie at my aise is Paddy my name is, With the tip of my toes and the point of my nose Turned up to the roots of the daisies.
