Some Anecdotes of a New Orleans Justice.
The New Orleans Thins
pair of good stories :
tells the following
Mr. Ilartholomew Lynch, who presides over
Kellogg s Fourth District Court, and who has
won euch unenviable notoriety in the trial oT the
Picayune libel case, is a son of old Krin. and
speaks the Knglish with a broad brogue. Noth
ing angers Bartholomew so much as to be called
' Carney," and he will not permit his most inti
mate friend to indulge in this familiarity. His
likes and dislikes are also very strong, and what
ever else may be said of him, he ean not be call
ed a hyiiocritc. One of his special antipathies
was Parson Conway, and happening into Haley's
bookstore about the time that the Parson was
notoriously obnoxious to the eopIe here, and the
Tinir.t was assailing him fiercely, who should he
see but the Parson himself, who accosted him
(iood morning, Uarncy ! "
Lynch scowled at the Parson ominously, and
replied with ill-concealed bitterness :
" Mister Conway, or Parson Conway, as the
New Orleans Timrs designates you, my name is
not Harney ; it is simply Bartholomew. I do
not srx'ak to a man for whom I have no respect,
and I do not allow any but gentlemen to Epcak
to me. Mister Haley, have you the morning pa
The Parson stood not upon the order of his go-
j ing, but went at once.
: 'ri,pre is a humorous as well as an irascible
j phase to Lyneh's character. It is related of him
that not long since a lawyer who also is a son
of the fi'recn Isle was arguing a somewhat tcdi-
i ous case In-fore him, when Lj-neh having satisfied
I himself as to the merits of the case, and drcad
I ing a lengthy Fjecch, said quite abruptly to the
voluble attorney, whom we chall name Hasan :
' Mister Ilagan, eit down, sir ! "
The attorney, with a coolness that was refrcbh
j ing, paid not the blightest attention to the com
mand, and proceeded with his argument.
'Mister Ilagan," said Lynch, ratlur more
pointedly, take your eate, sir ! "
The lawyer scarcely noticed the interruption,
but plunged ahead as vigorously as ever.
Lynch was now excited. :nul turning t the
Sheriff, he exclaimed :
Mr. Sheriff, gate Mr. Ilagan
The Sheriff hesitated a mome it to s e if his
sujierior was in earnest, when suddenly the irate
magistrate, with an attempt to smother his wrath
that wa.-- a palpable failure, exclaimed : ' Mis
ter Ilagan, go on, thin ! 'r and, after whispering
something to the clerk, lie relapsed into a listen
ing attitude, remaining perfectly quiet for some
J hour and a half, at which time the lawyer hav
; ing exhausted the subject, and being fpuite ex
hausted himself sank into a chair and saturated
an extensive pocket handkerchief with the copi
ous perspiration that beaded his legal brow.
Lynch raised himself slowly in his chair, and
. inquired very mildly, "Are ye through, Mister
" Yes, rir."
"Arc you sure you're through ? "
4 Yes, sir, quite sure."
' Well, sir," remarked Lynch, with that cut
ting irony an Irishman knows so well how to use,
44 Your argument has had no more effect upon
the Court than a spoonful of water on the back
' of a duck. There's leen a judgment entered up
against e for an hour aud more."
A new method of drying fruit and vegetables,
known as the Alden process, patented several years
eince in New York, and now corning into extensive
use in the Eastern States, has been introduced into
California and promises to be of much benefit to the
la the AKleu process the fruit is placed on trays of
gauze in a chimney or hot chamber, the air in which
has a temperature of not more than "10 nor less
than 1C0W at the bottom, and about 1 10 at the top.
The tiays are slowly hoist ed a distance of about -0
feet in this chimney, and when at the end of a
period not exceeding six hours, the- have reached
the top, and are there taken out, they arc reduced
SO per cent, in weight, and are ready for market.
While the air has had a temperature of J00 at the
bottom, near the furnace, the fruit has not at any
time been above 170, the rapid evaporation tending
to keep down the heat. A slow current of hot air
rises through the chamber, and toward the top it is
laden with the vapors from the fniit beneath. This
moisture is considered very beneficial, and the fruit
thus prepared is much better for table use than if
1 dried in common kilns, and it commands fir better
prices in the market.
The ,1lta California of the P'th ult. says of this
method that the Aldcn process costs only one-half a
cent for the green fruit, or less than one-tenth for
canning, and will not only enable us to compete
with the world, but for the first ti me will cnatile us
to get the benefit of our uneualel resources for the
production of fruit. Our currants, cherries, grapes,
apricots, plums and pears, when dried by the Aldcn
method, will occupy only one-fifth the space, and
have only one-fifth the weight of the fresh fruit; can
be transported for only oae-fiffh the frei-rht money: !
cm be preserved in good condition for years; can be
sent to all parts of the world, and can be grown j
our State as in the valleys near i'an Francisc, to
which most of our orchards are now confined.
Chinese labor in New Jersey seems to be a :
failure. The Philadelphia In-pur'r says : Most j
of our readers, perhaps, remember a laundry of ;
a wholesale on lor at Belleville, N. J., where a
Captain Harvey determined tw- years ago to
solve the perplexing labor problem by performing
his washing, starching and ironing by means of
Mongolian laborers. Twenty-four months of j
trial have discouraged the brave experimcntor of ;
New Jersey; his Chinese workers have been on i
several strikes, a number of them having violated

The Ixvant Times says that M. de Ixsscp ap-
rears to be in earnest about his great Asiatic
railroad scheme. lie has obtained, through
Prince Orion", the Kussian ambassador at Paris,
authority for his Bun and M. Cotard to travel
through the provinces of the Russian empire sit-
uated between Orenburg and Samarcand, in or
dcr to explore the country, and the necessary or
ders have been given by the government to the
imperial authorities of those parts. After this
exploration, a preliminary plan will be submitted
to a commission of engineers, savans and finan
ciers, and no funds will be asked from any ijuar
tcr until the project is ripe for forming a com
pany, when the final surveys will Ik? made in
accordance with the instructions of the commis
sion. M. de Lesseps calculates that these sur
veys will occupy probably a year and a half, and
that the whole line from Orenburg to Peshawtir
can then be finished in six years.
in the San Francisco market
recently brought one day ,s4oO, middle-aged wo
men -00, and old women 100 each, lhis
sounds rather strange, but in a sale of twentv-

this is what they brought at auction. They were
Chinese women, with delicate feet and fondness
for rats, we suppose ; but we are not informed as
to the nativity of the purchasers, and we con
clude that the latter were scarcely confined to the
almond-eyed .Johns alone. Who got the money?
"Who profits by this trade in the women and girls
of the Celestial Kingdom? Is it not a trifle dis
graceful that a city like San Francisco boasting
some of the bravest and most intellectual men
and women, and numbers of the lest newspapers
in the country should be guilty of permitting
such a scandalous proceeding within its jurisdic
tion? We arc inclined to think this an unusual
occurrence; but if such auctions are ordinary
affairs, it would be well to have regular quota
tions iu the California markets, so that the world
may know precisely how much flesh and blood
sells for in the FT Dorado of the west.
One of the strong points made against pobyg
amy is the cost of furnishing the wardrobes of a
half-dozen wives. The financial aspects of the
plurality system, at the present price of eilks and
laces and lawns and cashmeres and diamonds, are
quite enough to make even the stoutest-hearted
Mormon shrink back with dismay. But another
equally serious difficulty has been overlooked. It
has just been brought out by Mrs. Ann Eliza
Webb Young, the seventeenth 6pousc of Brigham,
the Mormon Patriarch, who has sued, for a di
vorce and a large alimony, and has taken away a
large quantity of furniture and other property.
This is a solemn thing, and we arc not surprised
that the Mormon elders tremble like a new settler
in his first attack of the shakes. A man can pos
sibly stand one divorce with tolerable equanimity,
provided he has the wherewithal to pay the costs
of the Euit ; just think of Laving wife No. 2 in
stituting proceedings, and wife No. o applying
to the court for deli rerancc and alimony, and wife
No. 4 making a dead 6trike, with the law for her
defense and weapon ! The possibility is alto
gether too painful for us to contemplate. The
marrying part of Mormonism is the easiest part
of it, but the divorcing part, especially when a
man has fifteen or twenty better-halves, is- unut
The cod fisheries of Alaska are assuming con
siderable imjortance, the fish finding a ready
6ale in the California markets. Three schooners
which arrived in San Francisco two or three
weeks ago brought an aggregate of 83,000 cod
fish, caught on tho JShumagiu fishing grounds.
The codfish from these grounds arc thicker, fatter
and in every way superior to those caught in the
Okhotsk sea, the 60urce from which the supply
for the Pacific coast lias been largely derived, and
they bring a higher price. As the distance to
the Alaska coast is only about half as great as
that to the Okhotsk, with an equal catch, those
engaged in the Shumagin fisheries make greater
profits by far than those who go further. The
fishermen employed in this trade do not work on
shares, but are usually paid according to their
catch, the price varying Irom $2-3 to 30 a thou- j
sand. When caught the fish are at once salted, !
but ars taken to California for drying. If prop- :
erly salted they arrive in good condition in JSan '
Francisco, whence the vessels are sent, as they
arrive, to tho drying grounds at California City
and Redwood City. There the fish are taken out
ono by one, and spread upon the ways after the
brine is washed from them. When the sun is
hot and the wind fresh the process of curing is
completed in two days.
Tea, as every housekeeper should understand
by this time, baa been declining in price. Not
long ago the reduced duty on imported teas, pro
vided by the revised tariff, went into effect, and
this partly caused the decline. Overstocking the
market accounts for the balance. During the
year ending July 1, nearly sixty millions of
pounds of tea were imported, and the tea mer
chants think that, with low prices and an in
creased demand, about fifty-five millions of pounds
were needed for consumption and export during
that year. This left five millions of pounds sur
plus, which, added to the surplus of a year ago,
increased the present stock on the market to
thirty-five millions of pounds, or nearly tight
months' consumption. This state of affairs could
only result in a reduction of prices, the value of
the tea in some cases going considerably below
the cost of importation ; so that the wholesale
tea dealers and importers have been losers. In
the wholesale trade during tho past year green
tea has declined 13 to 15 cents a pound in gold,
black, 10 to 2j cents, and Japan, 3 to o cents.
The Japan tea market was overstocked in 1S71,
so that the prices of this class were at a low fig
tire a year ago. This depression of course reacts
on the China and Japan tea markets, buying for
this country not being pursued on near so exten
sive a scale as formerly. The tea merchants in
China are, however, as shrewd as tho mercantile
class elsewhere. They hold their stock stiffly.
not as yet permitting a reduced demand to re-luct-
the price. Cheap tea is a great thing lor our
iople, and for many months past there has: been
a steady decline in tho price of this attractive ar
ticle, which was very gratifying to tea-drinkers.
however annoying it might have oeen t t'.k
