THE NEW STEAMERS.
Some Account of the Fine Machinery
Being Constructed at the Ball
It has already been stated that the Central
Facific Kailroad Company b having con
structed two large stem-wheeled steamers fur
the navigation of the Sacramento river, of
such build and capacity as to be able to ac
complish trips from San Francisco to this
city when the river is at its lowest stage.
The entire machinery for these boats is being
constructed at the machine-shops of this
company in Sacramento, and is of such a
character — bern'g novel in several n
and introducing some new applications of
mechanical principles — that a detailed de
scription will be found of interest. The ma
chinery has reached such an advanced stage
of construction that it may now be viewed at
the shops and a very clear idea gained of its
Kach of the two boats will be one hundred
and ninety feet in length and forty feet beam.
They will each draw three feet of water,
light. Kach wheel will be twenty-three feet
in di.-.meter and twenty-six feet on the face,
and thus each one will be equal to two sKle
wheels of dimensions usual for boats of 500
tons. Each boat will carry two engines, each
engine being thirty-two-inch bore with eight
feet of stroke. They are slide-valve engines
with independent cut-offs, link reversing gear
and main valves and cut-offs worked by
cams. They have surface condensers,
twenty-inch circulating pumps and twen
ty - inch air pornpa of twenty - inch
strike. Kach of the shafts are forged
in two piece3 t and bolted in the center by
iiuhgps forged! upon the shafts. There are
two 27-foot tubular boilers to each boat, with
60-inch by 10-foot turnace3 aud 'Jii 3-inch and
JiiicH.t tabes. There is a connecting steam
chimney and drum to each pair of boilers,
the steam being taken from the chimney to
the engines. There are also two witter t:.uk.s
of 15 feet length aud Hi inches in diameter.
The slacks are -IS inches in diameter and 52
feet long. The two condensers for each pair
are each 48 inches in diameter by 12 feet in
length. The boiler and tank work, drums,
furnaces-, etc., are all of Otis Bteel, and in
every part the best ponihle material has been
used, and neither pains nor ex[>ense have been
i«pared to make the work of the highest char
acter known to the art. and the skilled work
men are unanimous in pronouncing it work
that cannot be surpassed. .Strength and
effectiveness, with least possible weight con
sistent with power and security, has been
aimed at in all the machinery.
The wheel flanges are made of steel boiler
plate, and are 57 inches in diameter. These
ilauges are corrugated, and each arm sets into
a corrugation, and is riveted between, the
hubs being of wrought iron, where they are
usually cast. They weigh ureatly less than
if of cast iron, and are of course of greater
strength. The bolts used in the flanges and
hubs are of steel and set in cold.
The pitmans, like nearly all the work, are
of wrought-iron, and are novel in construc
tion. They are the first ever made in this
style. Each pitman is 32 feet in length, two
inches thick, and l'j inches in diameter at the
center with a taper to either end. They are
the finest specimens of hammer work ever
turned out of the phops on such a large scale,
and are so complete as to need no finishing
tool. The blacksmithing department has
every reaaou to be especially proud
of this work. As they came from
the forge each one weighed two
thousand four hundred pounds. Ordinarily
pitmans are made of wood and braced with
roda and straps of iron, kept taut by screw
and nut. Those of that style are necessarily
of great weight and are bulky, in order to se
cure the desired strength. The pitmans un
der notice, however, have greater strength
than those of the old style, and are yet much
lighter. From the forge they were taken to
the machine-shop, where i>-inch holes were
bored nearly the whole length, with 2-inch
spaces between. A channel was then sunk
one-quarter of an inch on each side
the pitman, along the line of the
holes. The cutting - out reduced the
weight 500 pounds. The best steel T
rails were then taken aud dressed off until
only the web, without lips, and the flange
wtre left. On either side of each pitman one
of these rails is bolted in a channel, making a
brace 4. 1 . by 4j inches, and Riving a thickness
of truss to each pitman of over ten inches.
These tros*«S restore the weight to the orig
inal figure, but there has been by the opera
tion a vast gain in strength without a pound
of addition in weight. It will be seen that
when the pitman is in place, it will be impos
sible to make it give way without spring
ing a truss upon one side and
upsetting that upon the opposite
side. These new pitmans, complete, weigh,
as stated, "_', HH) pounds each, while wooden
ones would kick the beam at the 3,800 pound
mark. Thus 1,400 pounds of weight is
saved, and a btrength secured of which no
wooden rod that could be made serviceable is
capable. Of course such machinery as de
scribed costs more than the old style, but
when the life of a boat is taken into consid
eration, aud the gain to that life by reason of
lightness of machinery is duly credited, it
will be readily admitted that Master Me
chanic Stevens is correct iv his views of what
is true economy in the construction of such
machines. To show how completely there
has been an adherence to this plan of work,
it may be added that th» bed plates of the
engines, nearly always of cast iron, are iv
these engines wrought, costing consUerably
more than if oast, but being lighter and more
economical in consequence.
The boats are now nearly ready for launch
ing, and will soon rccsive their engines. The
tir.-t pair will be sent down in about two
weeks. Each engine is to be set up here
completely and then taken down aud shipped,
so that the setting up again may be done with
j the utmost rapidity and ease. The engines
! will be of about 1,000 horse power. The
■ boats will ply between San Francisco and
! Sacramento, and will have a maximum ca
| pacity of about 500 tons. They are intended
| for freight exclusively, but will probably be
finished up to accommodate a small number
of passengers, though this has not entered
into the plan of their construction. The 1
boilers, engines and all accessories are now in
rapid process of construction at the shops,
and excite the admiration of all who have a
knowledge of machinery aud of iron working,
who have examined them.

POLICE COMMISSIONERS —ELECTION OF
The Board of Police Commissioners met at
the City Hall at 1 o'clock yesterday after
noon. It was understood that the election of
officers would take place, and this served to
fill the hall with applicants and interested
All the members of the Board were pres
ent, and after Mayor Turner had called the
meeting to order, Chief Karcher arose and
As we have agreed to appoint eleven men,
I move that the appointments be made for
one year, in the hope that some provision will
by that time be made for an increased force.
Judge Henry said he was not prepared to
vote on such a proposition, and did not care
to undergo the ordeal again in so short a
time. Unless some good reasons .for such
notion were given he would oppose it.
Chief Karcher replied that he hoped that
next year a sum sufficient for an extra force
wojld be allowed, and that then they would
want another election.
Judge Henry said that the force should be
elected, and if at the end of the year it were
increased only the extra men need be elected.
Chief Karcher said that Sacramento in one
year would demand twenty-five officers. Oak
land, with but few more inhabitants, %iad
thirty-seven officers. To increase the number
to twenty-five officers would require a special
Act of the Legislature, and then those in
office at that time could demand and keep
places whether they were wanted or not, aud
might demand pay at the present rate though
the pay of the others may be reduced.
Mayor Turner said a bill now before the
Legislature would probably change the whole
condition of affairs, and Sacramento could
have no special legislation. There i.< nothing
in the law to regulate the time for which offi
cers are appointed by the Board, and they
hail made their own rule fixing it two years.
Judge Henry made a motion that the Board
adjourn to meet subject to a call of the ma
jority. Anew question had been sprung and
he thought the Board should give it some
consideration. It was the duty of the Board
to elect the force and to be careful iv their
actions and they were not prepared to act just
now. An adjournment for a short time
would not cause any public injury as the
present force were doing their duty.
The motion was seconded by Chief Karcher
and the Board adjourned.
Cousiderable dissatisfaction at thej post
ponement was expressed by some of the anx
ious applicants and their friends, who de
clared they would prefer even a knowledge
of defeat thau to be kept in suspense.
At the last meeting of the Jockey Club its
name was changed to the "Capital Turf
Club." The canvassing committee reported
that memberships and subscriptions had been
received which guaranteed 51,04"2 ~>o for
purses, and !•."> subscribers were elected mem
bers of the Club. K. L. Billings was elected
Treasurer. It was resolved that the Club
should join the National Trotting Associa
A white man, who ranks as an " I-street
bummer and China gin-drinker," was annoy
ing a Celestial on Fifth street, near I, lust
evening, when the latter becoming enraged,
picked up his persecutor aud threw him down
stairs through the glass basement-door of a
wash-house, shattering the glass and cutting
his face considerably.
"The anxious seat" was the name applied
yesterday to the wooden railing around the
Court-yard at the City Hall by the hundred
devoted ones who were " on the fence" wait

At Folsoni Sunday, at the wing shooting
contest, J. H. Burnham won the Club medal,
killing 12 straight birds at "21 yards rise. M.
Riddle and C. Chapman each killed 11, and
George Routier killed 10.
Beginning this raerning, the public
?chools of this city will open at t>:!!0 in the
morning, and close in the afternoon halt an
hour earlier than at present.
A Chinese woman, who has been paralyzed
for three years past, died yesterday on 1
street, between Second and Third.
The purse containing $220, which was lost
at the Golden Eagle Hotel Sunday, was
found aud returned to its owner.
There are telegrams at the Western Union
Telegraph Office for W. P. Humphreys, A.
Zervenany and ,G. A. Shepley.
The Board of Education will meet to
night, and will probably take action ou the
A Usefjl Invention. — "W. C. Fitch, of
tli is city. Ins invented and been granted a
patent for " Fitch's folding newspaper-file."
It is a unique and admirable device for filing
newspapers in such a manner that they can
be held and read in the file with quite as
much ease as out of it. It is an arrangement
much like the ordinary hand papfer-file, but
is fitted with a flexible section in the middle
which permits the paper to be folded to a half
or quarter size, in which form it can be held
ami turned with as much facility as when free
from the file. The file is very light, and,
while securing the papers desirable to pre
serve, it entirely does away with the cum
brous and unwieldy pair of sticks which all
men who have sought to read a paper filed
upon them have had good reason to anath
ematize. It is an invention which should
find a place in every household where
a paper is taken, fur by its use the morning
journal can be secured in a binder, and the
head of the household will be more likely to
find it in place, and unmutilated, for perusal
after his return from his daily labor. For
hotels and reading-rooms it will prjve an in
dispensable adjunct. The price of the flex
ible or folding binder is a strong recommenda
tion for it, as it is sold at the low figure of 50
cents. Wm. Bliss is agent for the new in
vention, and will offer it for sale in Sacra
" Br.ACK Sheep." — Yesterday a3 two mem
bers of the police force were sauntering down
the wharf on Front street, with an eye to
business, one of them detected a suspicious
looking article wedged in between the timbers
underneath. A hurried investigation con
vinced them that the object was nothing less
than a human body, which might have been
in the water for a week. Visions of a reward
flitted through their minds, accompanied by
exciting thoughts of some mysterious tra
gedy, which would call for the exercise of all
their detective ability. They concluded to
keep the matter a secret until it was fully in
vestigated, aud while one agreed to Wing his
way up the street for a pole and hook, the
other agreed that he Wood watch the sup
posed corpse to see that no one else secured it.
The hook and pole were brought, and after
some diligent exercise the officers drew the
body out of the water, only to discover that
it was the skinless carcass of a sheep. The
officers quietly dropped the article and
moved on down the wharf, agreeing also to
drop the subject. Half an hour afterwards,
however, wheu they reported at the police
office, the entire force greeted them with
cries of " Bah ! black cheep !" And now
they are trying to detect the manner in which
the facts leaked out.
A Basi>cet.— Sunday last Fhiiip A. Bell,
editor and proprietor of the Elciator, San
Francisco, an organ of the colored people,
gave a complimentary dinner to several of his
friends, including the colored employes at the
Legislature, where Mr. Bell also has a posi
tion. He was aided in the capacity of host
by William Ecter, his associate editor. The
supper took place at the residence of Moses
A. Jackson, who was the caterer of the occa
sion. The spread was ample, choice, and
embraced most of the delicacies in season.
The supper proved a very enjoyable affair.
Toasts were offered and speeches made on
social, State and national topics by Messrs.
Bell and Kcter, George B. Johnson, Stockton ;
R. A. Hall, San Francisco; David Thompson,
Frank I*. Bowers, Henry Jones, Charles
HaUey, Albert Grubbs, M. A. Jacksen and
Daniel S. Blue.
Card Sharps.— Last night as a gentleman
and lady were walking down Third street
they were accosted by three small boys, who
told a pitiful tale of hunger. The leader of
the trio begged pathetically, "Please, sir,
give me two bits to git suffin to eat ; 1 aint
had nuthin' in three days." " Nor I nuther,"'
chimed in the other two. The gentleman's
hand went to his pocket and brought forth a
small coin, which he delivered to the leader
with an admonition to "^etout." The boys
scampered down the street, and ten minutes
afterwards were observed sitting on three nail
kegs half a block away from a street lamp,
busily engaged in a game of pedro to decide
the final ownership of the coin.
Impbovemots.— F. W. Fratt is about to
erect on X street, between Second and Front
streets, a three-story addition, 75 feet in
width, to the Union Hotel, thus giving the
frontage of the house on that street 95 feet.
The building will add 68 rooms to the hotef,
and the front will be made uniform with the
"20 feet it now has. Mr. Fratt is also refit
ting the store and changing the front of the
lower story of the building at the northeast
corner of J and Third streets, formerly occu
pied by the Boston drug store. When the
front is in and the store largely rebuilt, the
place will be occupied by Adolphe Walther
as a drug store.
Arrests. — The only arrests made yester
day were : S. Saloven, for petit larceny, by

Washington, April —The Pension bill was
laid aside on account (if the absence of Withers.
The Vice-President presented a communication
from the Secretary of War, showing the necessity of
an additional appropriation of 8265,000 to pay cer
tificates for- arrears of pay and bounty due white
and colored soldiers and their heirs, issued since
January Ist and to be issued till June, 1830.
Pendlcton presented a petition of Cincinnati typo
founders against a reduction of duty on type. ■« ■
A bill was introduced by Allison to compensate
' the Chicago, Burlington aud t^uincy Railroad for
facilitating the overland mails under agreement ;
also, paying the Burlington, . Cedar Kapids and
Northern Railroad for mail transportation. -
The bill amending Sections 22C2 and 2301 of the
Revi*»d Statutes in relation to settlers' affidavits in
pre-emption -.uid commute homestead entriei m
advocated by Teller, and passed. [It permits the
affidavits required'by those statutes to be made
before County Clerks instead of before a Register or
Receiver of land districts, thus equalizing the pro
visions, in tills respect, of the homestead and pre
emption laws. *■---:■
S:iu!sbury opposed the bill authorizing a retired
list of non-commisaioned army officers of thirty
years' service, because the pension list was large,
enough. Thousands of civilians had done as much
for the country as these officers, who had too much
attention paid them. The youth were beginning to
learn that all glory came through the army and
navy. .... .
The bill went over.
The Senate considered the Ute agreement bill.
Morgan said it would take >$!,000,000 to settle the
relations hereafter with the Indians, therefore the
bill was important.
Dawes opposed it, on account of the expense.

Manning, rising to a question of privilege, real
an article from a Washington paper oC Saturday, ■
respecting tbe action of Chairman Springer on the
Donnelly- Washburn cue. He denied all the pur
ported facts in the article, paiticularly the state
ment that he had substantiated them. <
Springer ignored the question whether Manning
had substantiated the facts, and made it a question
of veracity between Manning ami the newspapers.*
He then stated that he had received an anonymous
letter, though not signed by " A Republican," nor
wa3 it written by a Republican. He was convinced;'
and always had been, that the letter was written by
Donnelly or one of his friends, for the purpose of
insulting and bulldozing him, because they had
heard that he (Springer) would not vole in favor of
Donnelly. He sent to the Clerk's desk and had
read a letter from 11. H. Finley, urging him to vote
for Donnelly, and stated that there was a great
similarity between the writing and the anonymous
He said that Finley called on him the moraine he
returned, but was coolly received, and was notitied
that Donnt'lly would be helii responsible for the pub
lication of the fact of the existence of the anony
mous letter. Donnelly afterwards called on him,
and asked him whom he suspected of writing the
aiiKiiynnius letter. Sprintfur replied that it was
written by Kinley, the handwriting beinjr very simi
lar, as all agreed who had seen it. Donnelly thought
Fmlev eimld not have done it, and attributed it to
sonic of Wash burn's friends.
Springer thtn reasoned out the probability of Fin
ley's authorship : " I said to Donnelly, 'This letter
purports to speak in behalf of Tilden, and bears his
authority to vote the seat to you. Ido not believe
Finley has any authority to speak for Tilibn ; but if
he insists that he has authority, 1 want to tell Tilden
that I am not his man, and that I propose to decide
tins case on the law and facts as I understand them,
and will not be dictated to by anybody.' [Applause
on the Republican side.] That conversation was on
the 10th of March, and on the next day I received a
lettter from Finley stating, if he had gone beyond
bounds in the former letter, he begged leave to re
call it. 1 paid no attention to either of these letters.
This is the first time I have made them public."
Springer then made some remarks in a feeling
manner, referring to the article in detail, lie
stated that Waddell, the reporter who wrote the ar
ticle in question, had told him (Springer) that the
information contained in it came from Manning.
He would leave that question of veracity between
Manning and" Waddell. He said the following was
the letter which he received :
Washington. March -Ith.
Sir: If you will keep Washburn in his seat in
spite of the Democrats we will pay Mrs. S. $s*ooo.
Uet the thin" squashed at once. tiespectfuHy,
Had h;j received the letter at home he would
hare turned it, like all anonymous communications,
bat Mrs. Springer, who always acted as liii private
secretary, receiving it in his absence, did not regard
iv as an offer to bribe him, but Indignantly received:
as an attempt of Dcvjimlly and his lriin-'s to in
sult and bulldoze him. lie subsequently stated the
case to Dmtnclly, declaring that he and his friends
were responsible /or it. He then slid that Donnelly
had betrayed the secret of that letter against his
promise. Returning home he (Springer) found the
anonymous letter, along with the following from
Henry A. Finley, a porter and friend of Don
nelly, who resides in Minnesota :
tOonßdoutial.J Sly Dear Mr. Springer: I have
heard with a tod deal of chagrin that you have
some doubts as to the expediency of adopting the
reports of the sub-committee to scat Donnelly. Not
to do thts will, 1 know, leave you open to the se
verest criticism, and- give a color of truth to the re
ports which Wash burn's friends have most unguard
edly set arlttat. The importance d the matter, a3 it
I may develop in regard to the next election of Presi-
J dent, make; every Democrat anxiom to see
the State saved — now that we can legally and
properly do it— to the Democracy. The whole case
i- before our friends in .New York, and upon assur
ances which 1 gathered from what you said to me I
have M them that the report would be adopted
and Donnelly would bo seated at once. I cannot
believe that you will now fail to make this pood".
Among the hundreds of letters which, come tome,
there M not one in which the matter has not been
urged to temptation, when there has been»aiy
mention of it, and it is as much a matter of general
political interest as any of which they w rite me. am
convinced that neither you nor the Democratic
Congress can afford to disappoint our friends in
this matter. lam presumed to know, and do know,
how much weight ought to be given t > paid detract
ors of Donnelly and to mercenary quasi Democratic
defender! of the Wasbburn bribery. it is not
enough that Washburu should be deprived of his
seat, but that the wishes of voters, legally ex
pressed, should be regarded and vindicated, and
they demand that their chosen representative
should be seated. To fend the matter back to the peo
ple now would be only to invite the investment of a
large sum of Radical money to be expended
this would be done without stint. The worst ele
ments of the party would be put to work then, and
the result would bo disaster to us. The high char
acter of the members of the sub-committee would
seem to be impugned should the report fail of unan
imous adoption by the Democrats, and I trust that
such is not the case. I still hold the closest and
m.>-t confidential relations to those who are perhaps
personally to be offended by your decision in this
mntter, and 1 sp 1 ak in that capacity when I write
this, and viu r e upon you prompt and decisive action
in this vital matter ; and 1 may add that it reaches
further even than 1 have intimated, runl wiil both
itumediatelv and remotely affect us all beyond what
can now be apparent to you. I be? leave to add
that it still seems incredible to me that any one
»h«uld doubt your intentions to carry out tbe wishes
of our (rieuds in this matter. 1 am, with the sin-
Lvrest respect, very truly you™.
HENRY H. FINLEY.
