IT'S AN ILL WIND
BLOWS NOBODY ANY GOOD!
So say Certain Grasping Dealers, who have taken ad-
vantage of the recent advance in prices of goods.
For not alone have they added on the actual advance in prices, hut they have taken pood
care to add an additional 10 or 15 per cent., even on such goods where ao advance has really
taken place. They propose, where it i- possible, to bulldoze their customers into paying big
prices for inferior goods. The newest dodge is to show hesitating customers Circulars, said
to come from Manufacturers and Jobbers (but really gotten up for the purpose of deception),
dwelling upon the enormous advances in prices, etc. \ ; - .
No doubt this so-called shrewd business trick would succeed very well, and would
probably help to fill the coffers of our smarter competitors. But we are just mean, enough
to expose these little sharp practices, and just stupid enough to stick to the golden principle
of laboring for the interest of our patrons, by being the first to ' reduce when the market
declines, and the very la.it to advance when the market goes up. .
: . ■ --.-■ ■■- ■-■;-* . :;.;.: . . -"i-
Of course, our so-called shrewd merchants call this unwise business policy, and say they
don't believe in it worth a cent.
It seems, however, that the public does not agree with them, but sees fit to appreciate
our business stupidity. The result is, that notwithstanding the general cry of dull times,
it is a fact that for the same season of the year our trade is livelier at present than ever
This encouragement on the part of the public cheers u.s on, and only makes us so much
more determined to protect their interests, by keeping all advances down as much and as
long as possible. For this week we have the following inducements to .offer in our

RELIEF FOR IRELAND.
Appeal from the North Donegal Central
Lettekkenny (Ireland), January 5, 1880.
Klis. Record-L t nio>", Sacramento, CaL: I
am requested by the North Donegal Relief
Committee to inclose you a copy of their
most pressing appeal, and to ask you would
you kindly have the same published in your
next issue, gratis. lam your obed'nt servant,
\V. A. Gallagher,
.* Hon. Secretary.
NORTH DONEGAL CENTRAL RELIEF COMMITTEE,
The committee, whose names appear below,
appeal to the public for aid to alleviate the
distress which is daily becoming more appa
rent iv many parts v. Donegal. It is not
generally known that many thousands are, or
shall soon be, in absolute want of food and
fuel. The almost complete failure of the po
tato crop in several districts, the great dam
age which the scanty oat crop has leceived in
harvesting, the loss of turf, the stop which
a wet summer and the miserable prices of
fered have put to the manufacture of kelp
upon which the seaboard districts depend so
much for subsistauce, the want of remunera
tive employment, and the utter collapse of
credit, have brought to a most painful crisis
the distress which has long been gaining
deeper and more widespread, in consequence
of previous bad harvests and the depression
of agricultural produce.
Hitherto the people here have had no relief
except what the charity of individuals could
furnish, and which can do very little to alle
viate the destitution. Many of the land
lords are non-resident, and few productive re
lief works have been undertaken. The peace
ful, law-abiding habits of the poor people,
and the quiet, uncomplaining patience with
which they bear their great affliction, though
well calculated to win the sympathy of the
charitable, have, up to the present, cut them
off from public notice and from all share in
public benevolence. All these circumstances
have conspired to bring about an amount of
misery and destitution which is every day in
creasing in its intensity, so that, if timely
aid be not afforded, the committee feel that
utter want will soon be in their midst.
The committee has been organized as a
medium through which the most trustworthy
information may be received regarding the
state of the country ; subscriptions will be
collected and relief be conveyed to the dis
tressed districts, where all shall be carefully
and judiciously distributed by local com
mittees to be formed for the purpose. Its
action shall be confined to the northern por
tion of the county, from the Gweebarra to
Lough Swilly, as it is hoped that a similar
central committee can be organized iv the
town of Donegal to minister to the wants of
the southern district. The sole desire of the
committee is to render help to every deserving
case of poverty, without respect to 'creed or
class ; and they feel that the representative
character of the committee will be a sufficient
guarantee to the public that the case is most
urgent, and that any funds intrusted to their
care shall be distributed with a strict regard
to economy and impartiality.
Subscriptions will be received at the Ulster
and Belfast Banks, or any of their branches,
and at the Hibernian Bank, Dublin, or any
of its branches, or by the Treasurer, W. V.
Fleming, Esq., Manager of the Ulster Bank,

Sacramento.- — J. J. Owen, editor of the
San Jose Mercury, thus writes to his paper
concerning this city: "Sacramento, not
withstanding the general mildew and stag
nation that have paralyzed the industries
of our fair State during the last few years,
is making a healthful advance in the direc
tion of her natural destiny, which is nothing
less than a vast inland and semi-commer
cial city. She has extended her borders of
elegant residences and pretty homes far
beyond her limits of a few years ago ; and
I notice evidences of business improvement
that cannot but be raging to her citi
zens. The fee . depot of the Central Pa*
citic is a magnificent structure— by far the
finest . railroad depot on the coast. . It is
located on the made lands along up in the
alphabet in the neighborhood of <• street,
near its inter* e.ti.n with Second' street.
I notice several new business blocks in the
upper portion of X street ; also a number
of tine dwelling-houses in the neighborhood
of Capitol Square. The city is indeed
growing and prospering— I J re*
joice." ' i
Owing to the scarcity of pasturage in
the State good beef cattle are becoming
quite rare in the San Francisco market.
Wholesale dealers have advanced prices,
and several retailers have failed. Lux &
Miller are feeding 2,600 cattle at their
ranch near Gilroy, f^* .--..-. ■.■.*_..■
