AsoTiiint Wall Stuekt Sknhatiom took
phice on Thursday of lust week, caused by the
report of a proposed settlement of accounts
between Jay Gould and tho Krie Company.
Tho suits instituted by President Watson
against Gould w ere mttiaiied by the surrender
of properly of the value of f 9,000,000, which,
by this net is uknowledged to have be-en
wrongfully taken and withheld plundered
from the company. The sensation teems to
arise from the speedy result of Pres't Vut3on's
movement in the inalter. ' Although no one
doubt-d tho perseverance tho unswerving
purpose of Watson, or tho corruption and
culpability of Guild, his coming down nt so
early a stage of tho proceeding, and the signal
succYss of the movement, seemed to take every
ono by surprise. Tho enormity of tho sum,
ton, wiis in itself, of a somewhat startling
character. It was supposed that Gould had
pluck, . having the means A craftiness could
render litigation uncertain. The grip of Mr.
Wntson however firm, and forbidding all
chanco of escape, might at least, bo drawn
tediously out, and In the end very much whit
tle down tho whole claim. Tho voluntary
proposition of turreudry, was thestnrtlingand
sensational feature of tho affair. Tho surren
dry was miido on the 20th, and the reader w ill
bo interested perhaps In running over u brief
schedule of thn assets, or securities turned
over. Tho business was transuded at the
office of the attorney of tho compnny, P, L.
VI. Barlow. .Mr. Watson was preseut through
out thu counting of the securities, and the
signing of the receipts. Gould also remained
and assisted In the work. He has surrendered
unconditionally all his real estate In New Jer
sey, Pennsylvania and Uhodo I.dund, tho
Grand Opera House, with ten or twelve adjoin,
big buildings on Tweuly-tliird and Twenty-
fourth streets, together with a valuable plot of
ground at tho foot of Twenly-lhird street,
North Iliver. IIu also promised to secure Mi a.
Lucy Fisk's interest in tho Grand Opera
House. Thu Rhode I-dund properly la sup
posed to be Ids magnificent Marino Villa on
Ihe point at Newport. Tho Nuw York title
comprehends his real estate interest em the
North Kiver shore, and the Pennsylvania
properly is said lo represent coal fields. His
absolute surrendu' of (lie Grand Opera House
property would seem to indicate that Mrs. l-'i.ik
bad been convinced of her inability to hold
her ownership. What arrangement had been
made between Gould and tho Fisk estate by
which this has been brought about Is un
known. Tho Company have agreed io settle
with Hie estate of Flak for Fink's half of tho
Opera House and $100,000 in cush. This will
leave Fink's widow with less than $100,000.
The actual legal transler of real estate, em
bracing tracts of land iu Ohio and Pennsylva
nia, may require much more time lhau the
bonds and stocks.
Tliis is, perliai s, one nf Ihe most noteworthy
transactions of the day, and will give promiu
enco to Mr. Watson's name not only in this
country, but among thn English stockholders
und capitalists of the old world.
Notwithstanding tho startling and stupen
dous nature of this transaction, it is believed
that Gould will turn the thing lo bis personal
advantage, as lit thu humiliation ol being
forced out of the presidency by (sickles, bo
may now make more money, than by holding
on. With thu 200,000 shares nf Krlo slock
held by him, and that which ho would be ena
bled to buy up on either side of Ihc water, ho
would very likely nnd himself the gainer by
his surreudry, from the atlvaneo Irr its value.
Ho haa slopped lltlgit'lou yielded to Pres't
Walton's demands, and the market for Ki le is
iv-alu buoyant and Gould U la Ihe lull

a long puree? f successful tlnk-Jobbinif before

the chain but lo lay a third rail over the Krlo

is a wonder howr any thing can grow

the crops from the cold, and they are

to protect liom thu rain. Farming is a
profitable business in thin country, bui
lliu farmers depend on nature to elo the
most of the labor. They do not work

though the scenery of the Hudson is
more grand. Here, as there, Nature has
hemmed in the buy by the grand old
mountains, but there is an abaeuco ot
those splendid residences, and other
works ot art, which gives to the Hudson
its uir ot enchantment. We pass on our

concerning the curiosities, climate, soil,

nia, be and his wgoool wife," were going
easf, nnd from thence to "Merry Ensr
Innd." In approaching San Freneisco by wo
trr, one can form an idea Ot its commer
cial importance. Ships from all nations
are discharging their cargoes at the
wharves, while others are anchored in
the bay waiting for dockage room. Fer
ry boatt are plying between the city and
points of interest on the bay; while
steamers and sail vessels are constantly
arriving nnd departing, from and lo
places on the rivers and coast. Once in
the city I found the same busy place of
six months ngo. There was the hurrying
to and fro of pedestrians, all on business,
no one knew what; the click, clack, ot
wngons, the jingle of street cars, min
gled w ith an occasional oath of tho driv
er ns lie gets into a blockade; commo
tion and confusion this is San Fran
cisco. I was in the city on Sunday, nnd hnJ
not known tho d.ty of lliu week, I should
have thought it a "gala day," instead of
the Sabbath. Excursion parties were
leaving the cily ; bands of inuaio were
playing, nnd places of amusement were
open w ith unusual attractions to "draw
the crowd." I voluntarily followed un
til I found myself at "Woodard's Gar
dens." This man Woodard, ia the 'Bar
nuni of the l'aoifio Coast." He has
quite extensive grounds well laid out in
walks, leading to cozy arbors, with rustic
seals, and interspersed w illi the choicest
shrubs and most beautiful flowers. There
are tropical fruits and plants ot every
description, dates, oranges ami lemons
growing in profusion. Here are a choice
cfolleclion of curiosities from all parts ot
the worhl ; also many species ot the ani
mal kingdom ; all making a museum and
menagerie ot no small dimensions. Iu
the audience room were seated some
5,000 persons to see a burly African
I'drink hot alchohol, and handle red hot
iron and cannon balls." The Negro did
his part well, and the contact of tho hot
iron with his feet and hands, gave to
tho room very much the smell of a
blacksmith shop when searing a
horse's hojf. A fair damsel danced the
"Highland Fling," and an "Irish Jig,"
nnd the programme was ended. Thus I spent
the Sabbath ; but I was in " . Home und I did
as the Unmans did." Still there are many
church going people iu San Francisco, but
uiero uro very lew churches. The Jewish
Synagogue Is a building of vast proportions;
so are some of the Catholic churches; but the
orthodox ones arc few and small.
Ihe following Tuesday was election day,
and the city was very quiet, polling only a
little over half its registered votes, lii the eve
ning hundreds gathered around the newspaper
offices, anxious I'm returns. The Chronicle ex
hibited n transparency, and as the various tel
egrams were received, they were reproduced
on car.v.iss by tins gleam of calcium lights.
During thu interval between dispatches, comic
and patriotic pictures were shown, thus keep
