Within tlio past few weeks a num
ber of gentlemen have uusocinted
themselves into n company which
lias for its object the cultivation nnd
luanufactunng into a mciciiantauic
form of the plant known as ramie.
This plant may bo described as a
gigantic nettle without fctingn. tt
belongs to the "Uiticacea" family,
nnd is a native of East India, the
Malayan archipelago and China.
Foi many yeais it linn been fought
by inventors nnd nianufactuicis of
textile fabrics to obtain or (Uncover u
machine' whereby thu ramie could bo
properly deem Heated, or lather do
liheried. Tho outer skin of the plant
is composed of a hard, woody sub
stance, containing silex, which tends
to make it brittle. Under this skin
lies it line eilk-like fiber, but its fila
ments are gummed together ana
cling soclosely that the stiong threads
have hitheito defied separation by
any othei means than picking by
A solution of the problem of work
ing ramio by the aid of mucbineiy
has at length hcon attained. Ma
chinery has been perfected for decor
ticating and i educing tho libci to u
soft white silky substance. In such
a condition it enters the tield as i
formidable rival of cotton, silk, flax
and jute in textile fabrics. Samples
of the beautiful white downy threads
of the ramie were seen by a "Chroni
cle" reporter, as well as samplcB of
elvets, dress goods, window curtains
and table- covers made in Geiinauy
from ramie fibre mixed with silk and
natural were also shown.
The nlant is now extensiely cul
tivated in France, Spain, Algeria and
Egypt, and its lihto when cleansed
and bleached has sold in France and
England for fiO cents a pound. The
main difllculty experienced in Euiope
has been to obtain the libci, but the
machine now in pofscssion of the
company in this city can dccoiticate
fiom 3000 to 1000 pounds a day.
There aie now ordeis fiom Eutopu in
the company's hands to supply linns
with 100,000 pounds of the iilier.
California has the advantage over
any State in the Union in tho grow
ing of this plant, us it will thrivo
upon alkali and adobe lands. It is a
very haidy plant and is one of the
best known as n long-li ed perennial.
1'iopagation is obtained by means of
cuttings planted in rows, and it will
produce stalks ready for sale in ono
year. It is tlio intention of the new
concern to purchase large tracts of
land whereon it will plant ramie, but
fanners and otbcis who may culti
vate tho plant will find a ready sale
for their product at very piolitablo
i.ites. The stalks will either bo pui
chased outright or tlio company will
ciush them with its machines at a
loyalty and then purchase tho libeis.
If the industry takes root, the cul
tivation of ramie will certainly bo
compensating to persons who may
engage in its cultuie, and add to the
iiiany products of the State. S. F.
When Queen Victoria was a baby
a carriage in which she was being
aired upset and was about to fall in
such a manner as to break her neck,
when John Maloncy jumped in and
saved her neck by getting his leg
broken instead. John still lives at
ninety, aud is the recipient of her
royal bounty, though to an extent
which indicates that she did not set
much value on her baby neck or on
Maloney'8 leg. S. F. Alta.
According, to llmt Alta the British
peerage is about to be enriched by
an addition which may improve its
morals. The Earl of Stamford has
"married a nigger," a Hottentot

where she promenades around

"Young man," he said iu solemn
tones, "don't you know that if you
persist in drinking you will never
get ahead in this world '(" "Won't
get a hoad?" repeated the young
mau. "Why, my dear sir, your
ignorance emprises me. I'll have a
head on mo to-morrow morning as
big as a barrel."
According to an old superstition,
"if a baby tumbles out of bed it will
save his bocotning a fool." It seems
strange that the entire dtido popula
tion of this countiy should have
escaped falling out of bed in their
infancy. Non islown Heialcl.

A SHIPWRECKED CREW.
The brig Tahiti, Captain Turner,
arrived in Snn Francisco lately,
after n passage of thirty clays fiom
Tahiti. She brought up n number
of passengers, nuiong them being
Captain .1. T. Jcnsson, the carpen
ter, boatswain, sailmaker and two
seamen of the ship Aslnican, which
struck on a coral-icef off Matttrai
vavao Islaucl, ono of the Tuntnotu
group, in the south Pacific, on the
night of the 17th last, nnd became
rt total loss. At tlio time the ves
sel struck n stiff breeze was blowing
and one of tho boats was smashed.
The captain used every exertion to
get the vessel off the reef, but find
ing it impossible, he provisioned tho
icinaiuing boats and ordered nil
hands in and set sail for Tahiti,
where- lie arrived nine clays later.
When the natives there saw the
boats approaching tho captain says
they i of used to allow the crows to
pull any further, but insisted on
towing the boats in, and afterward
were very kind to them. The
American Consul scut ten of the
crew up on the schooner Greyhound,
and the lcmainder, as stated, came
up witli the captain on tho Tahiti.
The Astrncan was a baik-rigged
vessel of 1,011 tons register. !she
was owned by Ilurgess & Co. of
Liverpool and sailed from Astoria
November lfith last, wheat laden,
for Qucenstonn for orders. Her
cargo was insured in the Commer
cial Insurance Company for il,000.
Of this amount i.';J,000 was rein
sured in the Thames and Mersey
Marino Insurance Company and
3,000 in other companies having

when it has obtained a stlniig hold the
