CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
FRIDAY- SEPT. 3, 1874.
Some of Professor Carr's friends
are mentioning his name in connec
tion witli the candidacy for Governor.
The story that Charlie Cbockkk
has a music-box that contains a whole
band and plays forty tunes, is said to
mean the Sacramento Record news
paper, which belongs to the Railroad
Company and plays any tune the
The disposition of the Pickett
contempt case is the only prompt ac
tion noticeable in the proceedings of
the Supreme Court during the last
four years. If poor Pickett's had
been a land case, he might have
rested in Justice Crockett's chair for
two or three Summers.
In Livermore Valley the Grangers
and the Central Pacific Railroad Com
pany are having trouble. The Central
Pacific people refuse to give a side
track to the Granger Warehouse, and
the farmers propose to build a narrow
gauge road to deep water. It is stated
that the railroad is influenced by the
old wheat ring of San Francisco.
In the light of the fact that the
Plymouth resolutions declare Beech
er'B Innocence and "establish, to the
perfect satisfaction of this church, his
entire innocence and absolute personal
purity with respect to all charges now
or hereafter made against him by
Theodore Tilton," we do not see
the use of further efforts on the part
of Moulton and others. That "here
after" covers a great deal of ground.
Mr. Philip Arnold, the gentle
man who put up the great diamond
swindle, has been arrested at his
home in Elizabethtown, Kentucky,
and is now in jail. He will be brought
to this State for trial. Arnold was
not alone in the great speculation. He
had confederates among some of San
Francisco's wealthy men, and if tlie
matter is ever thoroughly sifted, we
shall have developments that will not
add to the credit or reputation of cer
About the Alden manufactured
raisin the San Francisco Call says:
"those who have visited the. Fair and
examined the specimens of raisin
curing by the Alden process, cannot
but be struck with the luscious and
attractive appearance of the fruit. No
imported article bears any compari
son with them, for size, beauty and
excellence of preservation. They are
also far superior in flavor; thus dem
onstrating that in this department, as
In most others, California may stand
pre-eminent." The Los Angeles grape
will make, the finest of raisins cured
by this process.
Experiments have recently been
made on meats with the Allien Evap
orator, aud the result is that the flesh
is preserved without the use of salt.
A gentleman writes us from San Fran
cisco that he had just eateu a mutton
chop which had been subjected to the
evaporating process several months
ago, and that it was asfresli and sweet
as if killed the day before. If meats
can be so preserved by this process
that they will keep sweet for years, we
may anticipate an early and radical
change in the mode of preparing the
food for sea voyages. A fresh beef
steak or mutton-chop after one has
been at sea several months, is quite a
luxury. The exhibition of meats pre
served by the Alden process at the
Mechanics' Fair, now progressing in
San Francisco, attracts a great deal of
attention. The company have also
an extensive and splendid display of
their dried fruits, all of which is pro
nounced by good judges to be superior
in every respect to fruit dried by any
Grant and his Journals.
If President Grant entertains
thoughts of re-election, the opposition
to the scheme so generally expressed
by the journals of his party ought to
induce him to abandon the project.
A large number of them, perhaps the
greater number, would yield to party
pressure and beneath the lash of the
party whip advocate his re-election, if
once tlie nominee of the Republican
party, but until he has received the
nomination or given evidence that he
will receive it he mu9t work against
the influence of his party organs. We
have from time to time noticed para
graphs in the columns of the Evening
Express of this city condemnatory of
the Administration, but an editorial
in Wednesday's issue takes decided
ground against the third term propo
sition aud sustains the statement
made iv the Hekald of last week that
the reports of Ku-Klux outrages in the
South, with which we are being re
galed just now, are manufactured in
the North for political effect. The
Express states the case in the fol
clear and forcible manner.
If the reasoning of 1870 was correct, and
Qrant was elected because It was believed he
would be the centre of a strong Government
which would soon put an end l o the radical ou -
rages in the South, the reasoning of 1874 would
be, Id the light of facts, that he failed to realize
the promise, aud Is therefore not the proper
man to administer the affairs ofthe nation for
anolher, and an extraordinary term under
our Presidential usage, If there is a stronger
argument against renewing Grant's lease of
power than the still unsettled and lawless
condition of the South, we do not know It.
IT our esteemed contemporary should "pe
ter out," and take its place on the dusty shelf
where repose so many smart but defunct
newspapers, It could uot be said that it died
of modesty.— Expreat.
"Died of its own smartness," will
never be written on the urn of our es
Bayle, explaining tile difference
between testimony nnd argument,
uses this laconic simile: "Testimony
is like the shot of a long-bow, which
owes Its efficacy to the force of
the shooter; argument is like
the shot of a cross-bow, equally forci
ble whether discharged by a dwarf or
■ giant." The simile is very beautiful
and to our ancestors very truthful.
The world did not move so fast in the
days of our fathers, and they had time
to weigh the sayings and arguments
that were presented—were, in fact, a
considerate people. Every subject
and argument was duly weighed, and
all that was good was received nnd
stored away for Use, These old men
were never in a hurry; they walked
deliberately; they rode slow, and al
ways arrived at their destination indue
time. They had time enough for every
business of life. Things have changed
since their day. Time is what we
most need now. When we walk, we
run; when we travel, it is by steam;
we talk by electricity, and we eat and
sleep by the tick of the clock. We are
tired, but have no time to rest. The
world is on a race, and we are left be
hind if we stop to think. We have no
time to consider the merit of sentence
or essay. The question is, " Who
wrote it ?" or, " Who said it V If he
is a great man and in the habit
of saying smart things, "It is elegant
— the very thing," and we repeat it like
parrots, no time to consider whether
there is real merit or not. "I am ou a
race, and I have no time to do more
than say and do things like other
folks; I must keep up that's all." This
is the language of every man and
woman of this age. Tlie result is, we
never have an object more noble, than
to think, speak, and act like some
body else. Making apes of ourselves
by cultivating an imitative spirit,
thus burying our manhood and bring
ing intellectual dyspepsy upon us.
The simile of Bayle is all right but
not applicable to this age; 'tis.position
that gives force to argument as well as
testimony, in these days. The wisest
sayings of a man In humble
position are never noticed, while
the most common-place sayings
of one in elevated circumstances
are repeated a thousand times.
This mania for aping seems to have
crept upon the world as insiduously
as the noon day pestilence, and all
classes are suffering alike: it is attrib
utable alone to this race after wealth
and position. The old and middle
aged cannot be benefited by any ar
guments we can offer, but we would
urge upon the youth of our land to
"go slow;" stop to think, take time
and weigh every subject that comes
up, and if you get the habit upon you
of considering before you act your life
will not be in vain.
HIS NAME WAS BENNETT.
Tlie First Dug ol Gold Must Taken into
The respective claims of Sutter and
Marshall, in relation to the discovery
of gold In California, havo been re
cently very freely canvassed by the
press of the State. While their titles
to fame are familiar to the public, it
may now be interesting to know
something of the man who startled
the people of Verba Buena early one
Summer morning twenty-eight years
ago by bringing into that town the
first bag of gold dust. For the past
eighteen years there has resided in
Santa Cruz a venerable capitalist in
Mr. John H. Brown. All the old pi
oneers know him well. He was one
of the earliest settlers in Sau Fran
cisco, arriving there in 1840, and for
many years was well-known as the
proprietor of the Port smouth House,
and subsequently of the Parker House.
From him the following statement in
regard to the first gold brought into
San Francisco has been obtained:
Soon after his arrival he opened a
hotel, naming it Brown's Hotel—af
terwards changed to City Hotel. He
kept the place as a resort for the Amer
icans. Among his guests was George
McDougall—well known to old Cali
fomians. Mr. McDougall was then
one of tlie prominent business men of
In the Summer of 1847, a stranger
came into the hotel, and after extend
ing the courtesies of the day—taking
a drink—he inquired of Mr. Brown if
he could direct him to some person
who had $1,000 in coin—a heavy sum
in those days—to loan or invest in
something which would be immense.
Mr. Brown introduced the stranger,
whose name turned out te be Bennett,
to George McDougall. Mr. Bennett
said that he wanted §1,000 to invest in
blankets to trade with the Indians,
and as collateral, exhibited two small
bags, which he declared was gold.
Both Brown and McDougall looked
at Bennett in astonishment. McDou
gall at last broke out with: " Get out
of here! Do you suppose I'm a fool ?"
Bennett left, but remarked to Brown
as he was leaving: " Well, you'll find
out one of these days."
In the Fall of the year following
Mr. Bennett came back to San Fran
cisco and exhibited to Mr. Brown 300
pounds of gold dust, stating that after
his interview with McDougall he went
to Monterey to try and get either tlie
money or the blankets from Thomas
O'Larkfn, but as soon as he laid his
eyes on him he concluded not to ask,
fearing, from his appearance, a worse
reception than McDougall had given
him. The last Mr. Brown heard from
Bennett, he was somewhere in Ore
gon, having gone there to fight the
A letter from Cataina to the Augs
burger Allgmemeine Zcitung of Au
gust Ist says: "Since tlie beginning of
Slay the largest and highest volcano
In Europe —the Aetna —appears to be
in a period of activity which announ
ces an approaching eruption. It will
soon be five years since a torrent of
lava covered the Vald de Bove. From
September, 18b9 to the present day
the mountain lias been quiet. Prof.
Silvestri, who has studied with atten
tion the series of phenomena pro
duced, recently passed two days and
nights on the summit of the cone, and
concluded from what he saw that a
new eruption may be expected at no
very distant date."
