SATURDAY DEC. 0, 1873
The increase in the public debt for
the month oil November, according to
the statement made public, amounts to
the startling sum of $9,528 t 575. The
estimated deficiency for the remaining
three-fourths of the present fiscal year
is $13,520,000, and the expenditures of
the year ending June 30th, 1875 will
exceed the estimated revenue," $13,
t'.01,000. A little over a year ago we
were asked by the administration
press to believe that such a state of af
fairs could only be the result of the
election of Greeley. Will some one
good in figures explain how it comes
that Grant's re-election didn't save us
all this trouble?
There are. old fogies in this city,
who having waded through the mud
for twenty five years, can see no sense
in "wasting several thousand dollars
In building side-walks and crossings."
If they were to listen for a short time
to the anathemas of our eastern visi
tors, they might come to the conclu
sion that a little money invested in
such improvements, is not wasted. It
is disgraceful that a city of twelve
thousand inhabitants, should not have
v crossing on her public streets.
The Cincinnati Commercial is an
able, Independent paper, and strikes
hard when in earnest. One of its late
utterances is expressed tersely, but
might have been couched in more ele
gant language. It says "all the Ro
man-nosed scoundrels and canal suck
era and gobblers of public funds
throughout the country should pay
particular attention to the progress of
Boss Tweed to the penitentiary. It is
a matter that interests them per
sonally."
A Washington Territory paper
strkes a note of the times in this fash
ion: "Farmers selling their wheat for
forty cents a bushel and county offi
cers paid at the rate of $3,000 a year.
Our legislative Solons should have a
vote of thanks."
There is an immediate prospect of
a rise in wool. In Boston and all
parts of the east, the market is firmer,
and more active. This with the rain
will be good news to our farmers and
grazers.
The State Senate has settled down
to business in earnest; and the Assem
bly Is preparing for work. Irwin has
been elected President of the Senate,
and Hhackleford, of Tulare Secretary.
Notice has been given in the L'nited
States Senate of the introduction of a
bill to repeal so much of the Postal Act
as prohibits free postage to weekly
newspapers.
A dispatch from Washington says
that Professor Langton (colored), has
superceded Howard, as President of
the Howard University.
Arizona Mining Items.
The latest news from Mineral Park
is that a large body of very rich silver
ore-black sulphurets—had been struck
in the Keystone mine, and that water
had increased to such an extent as to
interfere with the working of the
mine; consequently, the company have
sent to San Francisco to procure hoist
ing machinery.
At the Sheriff's sale ol mining ground
in Pine Grove and Bradshaw districts,
last Saturday, Levi Bashford bought
feet iirthe extension ofthe War Eagle,
and David Gruhb purchased feet in.
the California.
At Kelly & Stephens' store in Pres
cotL a large piece of silver ore is on
exhibition which came from the La
Plata lode, four or Aye miles south of
town.
The arrastraof Elliott Bros., In Pres
eott, worked by steam, was started
last Monday on Goodwin ore. W. C.
(Jollier is attending to the amalgama
tion of the ore, which yields about
S4OO in silver per ton. The arrastra
operation is an experiment to ascer
tain the proper method of treating the
ore.
Fred Henry, one of the owners in
the Rainbow lode, was in town a few
days since and reported progress in his
neighborhood. The arrastras on Kirk
land Creek are working successfully.
Parties working on the Vesuvius and
other lodes in the vicinity continue to
get out good ore.
We call the attention of our outside
readers to the description of Cedar
Valley district, written to the San
Diego World, and published on our
first page. Tlie district is 150 miles
west from Prescott, is, and has been
for years, entirely free from hostile
Indians, and offers many inducements
to mining men for investment.
Considerable excitement has been
raised at Camp McDowell and Phoenix
by the return of a prospecting party
with rich specimens of gold, silver and
copper ores, from a new district. Some
of the ore is visibly rich in free gold.
The party will return immediately
to work on their claims.—[Arizona

November 25th, requesting me to de

to say that I am not only willing, but
anxious to do all in my power to pro

therefore be at the sendee of the As

As regards the subject of my dis

California life in the year 1849, and the
years immediately following, might
interest a Los Angeles audience.
You may therefore.tender my ac

at the same time annonnce as the
subject of the proposed lecture "The

SAN FRANCISCO CORRESPONDENCE.
jS|i<'H.-,| i'<>rrcK)x>udi'ii(H! to t lie Herald. |
Sax Francisco, Dec 2d, 1873.
Another week has rolled round, and
I again start on a yarn for the especial
benefit ofthe readers of the Los Ange
les Herald. Polities are all tlie rage
just now, but Politics arc something
that T do not profess to know niueh
about. However, I can give you two
or three items that will doubtless prove
of Interest. The great absorbing topic
is the resignation of "Our Eugene,"
known to the world as Senator Cas
serly; this-step of the pet ofthe Demo
cracy lias taken the people somewhat
by surprise. ' There are very few bold
enough to state that they thoroughly
understand the reason for this resigna
tion. One will tell you that his health
has suffered so-much of late by his
clone attention to his senatorial duties
that the doctors advised his immediate
resignation. Another will say that
his private duties required his imme
diate presence; therefore his public
duties must of necessity be dropped.
The ill-natured have also their reasons,
the chief of which is that he is afraid
to meet the charges preferred against
him by the Democrat if County Com
mittee ; wishing rather to, cry out,
"Don't shoot; I'll come down,'' than
answer to the serious accusations re
cently brought up. Be all these taken
for as much as they are worth; certain
it is that his resignation has fallen
like a bombshell upon his admirers.
His successor for the short tettri re
maining to him, has not yet Ixjeh de
cided upon. Ex-Governor HaightTias
been very favorably spoken of, but he
has positively declined the honor.
Who the happy man will be, Qmkm

December First.
Yesterday was the great day on
which the newly elected city anO;
county officials took formal possession;
and great has been the change in the
majority of the officers; not as regards.
the chiefs, but as regards the subordi
nates. The new mayor Otis is well
known, and is not altogether an un
bred man. There is little fear in the
community at large touching his
course; he is for the people, first, last,
and all the time. Great things are ex
pected from the new Sheriff, McKlb
ben. I »nn only hope he will not dis
appoint the expectants; he has al
ways been looked upon as a safe man
in commercial circles; so was his pre
decessor, "honest Jack Adams," as he
was called, when running for office.
But who will call him honest Jack
now, after the record he leaves behind
him. The only other serious change
is the Chief of Police—Pat Crowley
retires into the realms of private life,
and if his successor, Cockerill, proves
to be half as good a man, he will be
good indeed, and the citizens will not
growl.
Fire Department.
It is not that I love Scannell less,
but San Francisco more—Shakespeare
slightly altered. Ido not know how
the Fire Department in Los Angeles
is managed, but I do hope, for the
safety of the property of your citizens,
it is not run on political principles.
Unfortunately for the Frisco people,
we have one Chief amongst us too
many; one a Republican, the other a
Democrat; both are good men, and
both have many admirers. Our Fire
Department is bossed by five Fire
Commissioners, when the balance of
l>ower is Republican. Whitney is
Chief, and the Whitney boys have
positions given them in the Depart
ment. When the balance of power is
Democratic, Scannell is Chief, and the
Scannellites obtain the positions.
Miserable to relate, what with resig
nations, etc., among the heads of the
concern, the balance of power has
been wobbling very much of late.
First we had one Chief, then we had
another. Balance has wobbled again,
and we are to have Scannell as Chief
now, vice Whitney and all the subor
dinates will be changed. This system
is simply disgusting, and which is the
better man, I will not pretend to say;
but these continual alterations tend to
disgust the public, dishearten the
men, and place the fire protecting
power of the city at a great disadvan
tage. At tlie Bancroft fire the other
night, the way in which Whitney
subdued the flames, was the theme of
admiration of all who saw it. He has
by sheer hard work brought his boys
almost to the acme of perfection; and
it does seem a great mistake to dis
place him now, purely for political
motives, disorganize the whole, and
give us the benefit of new men, many
unfit for their positions; such positions
only obtained because of the balance
of power in the Board, and not from
any merit on their part.
Sacramento.
The new Senate and Assembly mus
tered in full force yesterday. All was
square, and above Board in the for
mer, but in the latter, sharp practice
marked its opening, and the house
was adjourned in the face of a storm
of "noes." This sharp work appears
to have provoked much feeling, the
why and wherefore has yet to be told.
The meagre reports only state the
actual facts, but I suppose the absence
of two or three members, whose votes
were urgently needed, was the cause
of this action on the part of the minor
ity. But enough of politics, let me
launch out on social matters. First
and foremost, I must touch on the
old, old story of
Ship-board Horror*.
Captain Clarke, Mates Harris and
Malonoy have at last received sen
tence, the black sheep as usual come
off best. Those who are behind the
scenes do not "hesitate in saying that
Maloucy the second mate was the
worst of the whole mob, and he gets
off 'with a few weeks imprisonment in
tne county jail, whilst the captain,
(whose only fault apparently was re
maining too much in his cabin, there
fore neglecting his crew,) his punish
ment is several months hard labor and
a very heavy fine. He is now a ruined
man, and those who have been the in
stigators in this shameful persecution,
can lay that flattering unction to their
souls. The first mate persisted in stat
ing that be never struck but one blow
on board the ship, be this as it may.
he has gone to tbe State prison, and
will hereafter be branded as a felon.
Every ship that arrives now has some
case or another of cruelty on board.
Tbe "shyster" lawyers will not tall to
keep the matter agitated, so long as it
will prove a nest egg to them.- The
papers however will have something
else to fill up with in the shape of leg
islative news, ergo we may expeetthat
this description of excitement will die
out.
Tbe Weather.
The rain has come upon us, and none
too soon, umbrellas, and
thick boots are all the go now-a-days.
The weather wise tell us that we are
still some inch and a half behind a cor
responding date last year, but we live
in hopes of seeing tbe streets a sea of
mud and slush, and of hearing our
friends greet us with "Glorious
weather this, what splendid rain for
the country." Seriously however, we
are all glad to see tho rain for the
country's good, but I should like to
poll the residents of San Francisco,
and if possilde find out how many
honestly enjoy the rainy weather, and
would not rather see the sky serene
and blue overhead, than lowering as
it is now.

Our day of thanksgiving has past
and gone, what an awful number of
turkeys must have been consumed,
and what fine turkeys they must have
been! 1 have not met with a solitary
individual who would confess to any
thing but that he sat down to the finest
turkey he had ever seen in his life.
Stay, I do know of one man who resides
across tlie bay at Oakland, a man
married, settled, done for, and the
father of a family of growing boys; in
a moment of weakness he had promis
ed his better half that she should be
the possessor of a new kitchen range,
a patent one. The range was purchased
fitted up, tried by the seller and pro
nounced to be perfect in every respect,
this happened on the day prior to
Thanksgiving. Early on the Thursday
morn, the domestic rose, and proceed
ed to light the fire in the new range,
but "divil" a bit would it draw, do all
she could, no fire could she make, noth
ing but smoke, and such smoke, it
! would not go up the chimney, but per
sisted in first invading the kitchen,
tiext the sitting rooms, finally the bed
rooms, disturbing the father of the
family, the mother of the family and
all the growing boys above alluded to.
All Frieda hand at the patent range,
but all failed, no breakfast could be
obtained, much less a Thanksgiving
dinner, and these miserable indi
viduals were compelled to scatter
themselves around, some>totheirsym
pathizing neighbors, others to the
abominations known as restaurants.
Drop a tear to their sufferings, for this
is an "c4er true tale."
Amusements.
The past week we have not had any
amusements, we have only had at
tempts thereat, and only shameful at
tempts after all. On Monday and
Tuesday we were favored with a dish
of slang at the "California" written
by Mestayer the vllain of the Stock
company connected with the theatre.
On Wednesday the old story of a new
face desiring to make her debut was
enacted, result as usual. Remainder
of the week "Lancashire Lass" and
such like trash. Opera House devoted
to miserable, performances of "Barbe
Bleue, only ' approaching" success
towards the end of the week, owing to
insufficiency of rehearsal. "Burnt
Corks," tolerably good, but perform
ance only took owing to the Ella
Mesners part of the programme which
amazingly pleases the rising popula
tion. \Ve want John McCullough
back badly enough; we are ail glad to
hear of his successon his starring tour,
but we "canna" do without him.

Letter From Wilmington.
Wilmington, Dec. 3,1873.
Editor of the peo
ple of Wilmington are much interest
ed, just now, in planting shade trees,
with a view to improving the value of
their grounds, and the appearance of
the town. They are resolved to remove
the reproach cast upon the town that
the soil is worthless, and unfit for cul
tivation, and that no homes can be
made there in which people of taste
would be willing to reside. The ex
periments already made prove the con
trary to be true, that no soil Is more
productive, and no locality in the
country better adapted to the growth
of shade and fruit trees, grain and veg
etables. The orange trees growing in
Gen. Manning's yard produce as fine
flavored oranges as any growing iv
Los Angeles. Grape and lemons, figs
and other fruits yield as well,, and are
as fine flavored as similar fruits in
other localities. Nor is the climate of
Wilmington inferior to that of any
other point on the Pacific coast, not
excepting San Diego and Santa Bar
bara. The summers are cooler, and
the winters less frosty than in Los
Angeles. The oldest residents of the
town are amazed that strangers, or
any one else should imagine that Wil
mington is undesirable as a place of
residence. A mile below the town
there is a beautiful pebbly sea bench,
extending for miles to the east, along
which carriages may be driven, and
where visitors may enjoy the luxury
of a sea bath, or the sport of fishing,
or of shooting, duck, geese or snipe.
In two or three years more, the groves
of trees that are to bo planted will
change the whole appearance of the
town. The kinds that have been
selected, and that are most valued for
ornament and utility, are the Austra
lian gum, and the pepper, as these
thrive well without irrigation after
they have taken Arm root. Gen. Ban
ning and Hon. 15. 1). Wilson are pre
paring to plant many thousands in
their extensive and beautiful grounds,
having made large purchases of these
and other trees. Large quantities of
seed of the gum tree have also been
purchased and planted by Mr. Wilson,
with a view of having young trees
enough to supply all his neighbors
gratuitously, on condition that they
will plant them.
The true method of planting the
seed of the gum tree. I will here des
cribe for the benefit of others. Spade
the grouud deep, set. up boards around
the piece thus spaded; oovcr it three
inches deep with rich sand, and lastly,
cover the sand two inches deep with
sawdust. Sow the seeds evenly over
the sawdust, and pound the entire
surface down gently with the back of
a rake. Sprinkle the whole with
water, keep it moist, and protect from
frost. If planted In this way not a
seed will fail to grow, if it has any
vitality. C
