The month of January is past, and lovelier weather could not be—but three or four rainy days—its contrast with the last year’s January is a good commentary on the uncertainties of the Californian climate. In January, 1862, there fell in this city 24.36 inches of rain; in January, 1863, only 3.63 inches, or only one-seventh as much. There had fallen last winter, up to the first of February, over 38 inches; this winter only 6.5 inches.
