the increase of population, etc, bis ofiice

it! his affidavit that he now had tbe same
number of deputies employed by his
predecessors, but that the duties now re
quired of that department were in excess
of thoso heretofore required-
Chairman Grew said he thought two
deputies were more than the Sheriil" re
quired at this time. If he required more
assistance when the time arrived for the
collection of taxes, lie would be willing
to a_ow him whatever help might be

While yesterday morning's edition of
the Recokd-Union was being worked off
Arthur Manley, one of tho pressmen,
had tho misfortune to have his right
hand caught in the machinery that folds
The press was stopped as quickly as
possible, but the hand was. heid tightly
between the irons, and it was twenty-five
minutes beforo the heavy machinery
could be detached so that the crushed
member might be released.
Manley stood tho ordeal with great
fortitude, and when his hand was finally
withdrawn it was found to bo terribly
lacerated. A surgeon was ready to dress
the wounds, and found that no bones had
been crushed. The injury, however, is a
very painful one, and the hand will prob
ably be disfigured.

A Memorable Year in the Experience
of Old Pioneers.
The Hardships Which Men Underwent
in the Search lor Gold—A Miner's
Life In the Diggings.
Those of the earlier pioneers now liv
ing will be interested in reading the fol
lowing letter sent to tho Placerville ____*-
ocrat by Charles P. Jackson of Chicago.
It was written by him to his wife shortly
after his arrival in the gold region, and
gives a fair idea of what nearly every
miner of those days experienced in his
search for gold among the hills and can
yons of California. The letter was sent
from Georgetown, El Dorado County,
April 28, ISSO, and bears tho Sacramento
postmark, May 3d. The writer's wile
had to pay forty oents postage. A feature
of the envelope is that it was seaied with
a wafer, mucilage being of later date. The
letter recounts the incidents of the voyage
from Panama to San Francisco on an old
whaleship, for $1(_), and occupying fifty
five days. It ran a3 follows:
Suffice it to say we all reached San
Fraucisco safely, increased in our corpo
real proportion, notwithstanding the
questionable diet of two-year-old • '.ait
horse" aud wormy biscuit. San Fran
cisco we found to bo a great overgrown
baby of a place—much liko the boy who
has outgrown his breeches. A majority
of the buildings aro tents, of every vari
ety of style and situated in all shapes
extending i'roin the shore of the Lay to
the top ofthe hill back of the city, it had
the appearance of business, but ut the time
Aye were there the miners had mostly left
for the dillerent mines, aud tiie greater
part of the business done seemed to be
couiined to the gambling houses, of
wiiich thore are more than in any otber
city In the world, perhaps, of its size. In
fact one can not go ______ of them, and,
judging from the Immense piles on their
tables, one would infer there is really
piles of tho Bt__Fhere, and that it can be
picked up by the hatful. We took the
steamer for Sacramento, on tho Sacra
mento River, some hundred miles up—
faro §__ and |2 for meals. This rather
"got us," but as we were in for seeing
the real elephant we did not demur.
Bacramento is a beautiful city, or rather
■ beautiful place i'or ono. and but for its
overflowing, would be. the great mart for
California, as large vessels cau run up
hero the greater part of the year, and it is
so much nearer the mines. Gold has been
fouud here, but in small quantities, and
very tine. It is a place of bnsiness, and
I know of no place in the country otter
ing tho same advantages tins dees.
Sutter's Fort immediately adjoins
town, and the plain just hack is his big
wheat field. The buildings in Sacra
mento are mostly cloth, and they are now
putting up some very pretty wooden
blocks. We stopped here but a few days
and then broke lbr the mines—halting at
tho first diggings. We bought two rock
er, at 885 each, and commenced opera
tions. Four of us worked live day.s and
made |6_ This gave us some experience
and encouragement, though with but
little pay. We accordingly sold our rock
ers, lelt our tent and contents standing.
took what we could pack on our hacks
and started for better diggings. We had
our blankets and an extra shirt, of course,
then our pans, picks and shovels, and as
much grub as we supposed would do us
—until it was gone—about sixty pounds
for each man to pack. Add to this tho
increase to our loads from rain—now if
we didn't see a little of the elephant,
there's none here.
We went to Hangtown, but here found
everything dug up that had any appcar
anco of pa 3% so wo started out jackass
trains for this place, where, if you will
tako the trouble to look, you will find
your humble servant and Mr. Murgotten
domiciled in an Bxlo cabin, with all the
proclivities of old miners scattered in
glorious profusion all about us (1 have
somo beans cooking—excuse me while I
see to them).
We are now in a rich mining country,
probably as much so as any in California,
but, unfortunately for us, the good sites
are all claimed, and tiie only chance for
us is to work over what has beeu once
worked or pussed by as not ht to work.
We went to work ou our arrival, sunk
holes in the bed of a ravine or canyon,
and worked here two days, all hands (four
of us}, and got—nothiug, while above and
below men wero doing tolerably weli.
We then divided oir', two and two, and
tried again, with rather better success.
Messrs. Anthony and Resell took an old
claim, baled tho water from the hole, and
took out &_7 the first day. Henry and I
sank a hole six feet alongside and took
s___ Tbis was tho lirst work that paid
in fact, tlie lirst real niiniug that we had
done. This satisfied us that gold was '
here, if wo could only bnd it and wen;
willing to lay out the requisite amount of
labor. Wo sunk another hole some larger
than the lirst, and took from it $103, and
wero seven days in doing it, two of us.
The past week Henry and 1 took out
$Vo3. This is better than we have before
done and rather better than tho average,
though a short distanco before us, in fhe
same canyon, a man took out $258 yes
terday. Ho lound ono piece worth $220,
and the balance was lino gold. This was
one of the lucky strikes such as wo used
to read of in tho States. Such tales are
the ones industriously circulated in the
papers throughout tlie .States, inducing
many a poor fellow to leave a good, busi
ness, family and home and try his fortune
in this country, many of whom will curse
the name of gold and the country whence
it came to the last day of their lives.
Tliat there is gold hero, and sufficient to
eurich a great many men, there is no
question, but tlie cost of getting it is much
greater than any ono would suppose who
has not tried it.
Iv order to illustrate, suppose you take
supper with us. This beef cost -lv cents
per pound; hero is bread, good enough to
grace any table, if the Hour didn't cost
but __> cents per pound: just enough sal
eratUS, that cost $2 per pound, to make it
light; then we had to put in a little vine
gar that cost $3 SO per gallon to make it
i laise, and just enough salt to make it
. taste right, which cos: .JO cents per pound.
! This molasses was made from sugar
I which cost 65cents per pound. Will you
I try somo of tho frait (dried apples)? I
: paid 70 cents per pound* and gut the beans
j lor the samo price. 1 paid .J 7o ibr tliat
| water bucket, just such as was sold at
; home for 25 cents. If you should waut
| onions, you can get theni for £_ 50 por
: pound, and potatoes for 40 conts.
Wo otter uo apology for our supper;
hand up your tin and we will fill it with
coffee, which cost 55 cent, per pound.
Our SUpper will speak for itself, and
though not of the best, so far as variety is
concerned, yet tlie cost is there, and a
good appetite makes it relish. You can
I now form somo idea of the cost of living
here. Could we live as cheaply as iv In
diana we could lay by money, but as it is
! eight to ten dollars a day is small pay.
There is gold here, and in abundance,
; scattered OV6T a vast extent of country,
but when everything is taken into eon*
j sidoratiun—the exposure and hardships
: one is bound to undergo, tho risk of
health—all combined, induces me to say
that if a man has a good business in the
States, stay there. If he cannot support
a family he ought not to have one. My
impression is that not one half who are
here now would have come had they
known all. But it is only the bright side
of tho picture that is shown. It is a lot
tery here. Each man has a ticket and
expects to draw a prize. I, too, expect to
draw something, and may be able next
January to tell you personally what I
The climate hero seems healthy and,
witli care, we think we may be able to
retain our health. In fact, we are rather
compelled to be careful, for doctors' fees
are "somo''—onlv one ounce for drawing
a tooth. Should we be unfortunate and
"take a fever," our cheapest plan will be
to return home for medical treatment.

They May Assist the Police In tho
Dr. Murphy of Peoria, 111., has been
writing more letters to Chief Drew about
his son. Ho pretends not to believe that
William Arlington and his son were ono
and the same person, and yet it is evi
dent he cannot shako off tho conviction
that they were.
An evening contemporary states that
"the Chief has telegraphed to John Daly,
the 'Chicago man,' to send lull particu
lars of his mooting with Arlington five
years atjo in Chicago, and also asking
him ifthe officer at that time gave him a
photograph." In tho same articlo in
which the Record-Union lirst expressed
the belief that the deceased oliicer was
the son of Dr. Murphy, it also stated that
Arlington, when East about a year ago,
spent threo days in tho company of John
Daly, a prominent sporting man of Chi
cago—it was not when he was East fivo
The lIK-OUD-Union can give Chief,
Drow another possible pointer. He
might ascertain about what year it was
that Arlington was employed as driver of
tho omnibus for the Golden Eagle Hotel.
(It was pi-ior to the removal of tho pas
senger depot from Front and J streets to
whero it now is.) Then let him inquire
of Dr. Murphy if he visited California
about that time.
Len Spurgeon, tho old-timo hackmau,
was once reported to have said that ono
day, when the train from the East ar
rived, Arlington ran out of tho depot to
whero Spurgeon's hack was standing and
said that his father had just alighted
from the train, and that ho (Arlington)
did not want to bo seen by him. Tho
story, ss told, was that Arlington re
mained secreted among tho hacks outside
the depot until the train pulled out.
It' Spurgeon should verify this .state
ment, and Dr. Murphy admit that he
passed through this citj' about the time
referred to, he will be forced to admit
that Arlington was his son.
