The mliiirlmn homos of the railroad anil lo
nanzii kiiiSA of San Fr.incico are chiefly in the
San Jose Valley, which extends .south from the
city, not far Jrom the coast, but separated from
it by a ranse of hills. The showy places are
.scattered along the railroad for a distance of
forty miles. That of 1). O. Mills, who is no
longer a CaJifornian. except for a few months
of the year, is called Milbrae. The house is like
a palace in size and external ornamentation,
hut is built of wood, as are all the others in the
valley, on account of tln dread of earthquakes.
Further along is Jlchnont, where Jtalstou, the
unfortunate manager of the J.ank of California,
used to entertain strangers and friends alike
-with lavish hospitality. This property is in
the hands of a receiver. At Menlo l'ark, thirty
miles from town, are a dozen or so of very ex
pensive summer houses. The newest and roost
wonderful is that of Flood of Comstock Lode
celebrity. It appears in the distance like a
magnificent while marble pileofvat propor
tions and ornate architecture, but proves, on a
nearer view, to be painted wood. It stands in
beautiful grounds, and is approached by a wind
ing avenue lined with exquisite flowers. An
other grand place at Menlocost the late banker
Latham a million, but cannot now be sold for
the 200.000 mortgage that rests on it. Ex
Governor Shin ford's estate embraces '".000
acres, much of which is used for stock breeding.
The failure is announced of the Co-operative
Dress Association of Xew York. Kate Field,
Mrs. .lolin Bigelow, and other well-known
Ucw Yorkers are the leading spirits in tho
coucern. It was started about one year and a
balf ago with a capital of $-230,000. Stock
holders, it was announced, were to have a re
duction of live per cent, on all purchases be
sides the dividends that were certain to be de
rlared. A large live-story- double store on
"West Twenty-third street was hired and fitted
up in handsome style. Thei was a hand
somely furnished reading-room and a restau
rant, which has been patronized by out-of-town
customers. The stock was in $23 shares.
These were taken largely by wealthy ladies
and many of the middle classes. The loss is
not likely to fall very heavy on any one. al
though there are instauccs whore there will be
a loss of a few thousand dollars. From four to
twenty-five shares is the amount held by most
of the holders of the stock. Tho 1 labilities are
given at $125,000, and the assets $211,000.
Late accounts from California notice the great
increase in the size of the vineyards there. A
plantation of 200 acres used to be considered
a Jarre vineyard: now vineyards of 500 and
GOO acres are not uncommon, and one of 1,500
acres was recently planted near Los Angeles.
It is expected that in three years or so Califor
nia will possess vineyards of 5,000 or G.000
acres in extent. The total number of acres at
present devoted to vine culture is estimated at
about 100,000, all of which will be bearing in
about four years' time, and producing about
forty or fifty million gallons annually. New
wines at present fetch from twenty to twenty
five cents per gallon for dry wines, either red
or "white. Sweet wine is dearer, ranging from
fifty-fivo to seventy-five cents per gallon.
Though next year's prospects are good, last
year's prices of grapesarc not likely to be main
tained, as the cellars of San Francisco are said
to be fulL
The new works of the Clark Thread Com
pany, at Kearney, X. J., have been formally
opened. Here are some statistics about them:
There were 7,000.000 of bricks ued in the
buildings, 2,000,000 feet of lumber and 1.210,000
pounds of iron ; there are two pairs of engines
of MM) horse-power each, twelve tubular boilers,
six feet, in diameter and seventeen feet long ;
r1) pullies from eight inches to eighty-four
inches: 510 ma-hines. weighing 10,000,000 of
jioui.tK whi' h in one day of ten working hours
will produce a it ngth of yarn sufficient to en
circle the earth four times, and so fine it would
only weigh 2,000 pounds. The spinning mill
is yi-i feet long, 125 feet wide, and five stories
bigh. The thread mill is 250 feet long, eighty
live feot wide, and five stories high. The
chimney stack is 200 feet high and seventeen
f-at wide at the bottom. The cotton mill is
the largest in the United States that is entirely
ned in spinning cotton and in its preparation.
The mill cost over $1,000,000.
An invention, which it is believed will effect
important changes in the metal trade, has rc
c ntly been patented in Great Britain and most
foreign countries, and is now being sold as an
article of commerce. The invention consists
of a new method of manufacturing alumina, by
which uine-teuths of the present cost is saved,
while it can be made in immense quantities in
the course of a few days, instead of requiring U
months to produce it, as was formerly the case.
The inventor is Mr. Webster of Hollywood,
near Birmingham, England, who has been en
gaged in the experiments since 1S51, and only
succeeded in perfecting his process about twelve
mouths ago, after having expended nearly
$150,000 in the experiments.
Statistics of building in Chicago in 1SS2 are
now complete. The number of permits issued
ivas 3,010. The street frontage covered with
new structures, lineal measure, w:is about four
teen miles, and the total cost of buildings
erected was about 20.000,000. The larger por
tion of the new buildings are two and three
fctorics high, about one hundred are four stories,
fceventy-five five stories, and thirty six stories.
There are a few seven, eight, nine, and ten
fctory buildings. The totals show that the ex
penditure this year has been about one-half
that of the year 1S72, when the rebuilding of
the city after fire the was going on.
Emigration from Germany to the United
States seems to have fallen oh" somewhat from
the bigh figures of hist year. During Novem
ber the number of emigrants who left Ham
burg was b,141, as compared with 0,oll in the
same month of 1831. For the first eleven
mouths of the current year the number was
110,091, as against 119,350 for the same period
of last year: but the former figure includes
a considerable percentage of fugitive llussian
Jews. On the whole, it is calculated that the
number of emigrants through Hamburg luis
this year fallen otf by from 30,000 to 35,000.
The industrial census of Philadelphia, as
taken by the police department under tho di
rection of-Lorin Blodgett, is substantially com
plete, and the returns show a large increase :is
comjiared to the census of IcsO. From the
figures already computed over 10,000 establish

At a meeting of manufacturers of iron in

THE STOCK MARKET.
Review of tho Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
New York, Dec. 27. The market has been
dull, feverish and spasmodic, during tho day,
with very little feature beyond fluctuations
caused by local traders. Outside business is
still at a minimum, and there is little or
nothing to be said in addition to our remarks
of yesterday. Operations of all kinds are
awaiting the turn of tiie year, and the s'nort
interest is pretty well closed, andfsuch as there
is seems to be liquidating on every opportunity.
