Wkixock, la his testimouy be
fore th* jury, laid that he had
never heard Kearuey use the word
"hemp." Wellook must have
eloaed his ears very discreetly not
to have heard this word fall irom
Kearney's lips. He talked so
much about hemp in bis speech iv
Loa Angeles that he left little room
for anything else but stuff about
"quail" brigades and profanity iv
speaking of every one who differed
with him ln opinion. Kearney
himself, when brought face to face
with the penalties of the law in the
Court room, said thatjhe used these
expressions in a " metaphorical"
sense. Such figures of speech are
very damaging and disagreeable,
however, whether used in a Pick
wickian sense or not. The Argo
naut says that Mr. Mark Hop
kins hat stopped work on a
magnificent residence which was
under way in San Fraucitco,
and Mr. Flood, of the
firm of Flood <fc O'Brien, has
postponed the building of a resi
dence which was to exceed any
thing known hitherto on the Paci
fic Coast. Bath thete gentlemen
allege, at the ground of their ac-
tion, that they want to know what
they have to expect. Such a state
of things reacts against the honest,
industrious wurkingmau. A mob
of eight to ten thousand men, suoh
aa once assembled near Crocker's
house, on Nob Hill, and such as
assembled regularly on the Sand
Lots, until Mayor Bryant's procla
mation appeared; a mob whicli re
ceives propositions of violence, in
cendiarism and wholesale haagtng
with apparent approval, can bring
a great city to a standstill in a few
weeks. Every day's continuance
of such a reigu of terror would
probably witness tho withdrawal
of large sunn of money from jau
Francisco to places of greater se
curity, and the workingman would
Had himself about as badly dam
aged as the capitalist, or, rather,
more so, for the capitalist, though
his means might be diminished,
would still bs able to command the
luxuries of life.
The election of members for the
Constitutional Convention which,
we presume, will be railed by the
Legislature for soma time iv the
coming Summer, will bo the next
important matter that will engage
the attention of tho voters of Cali
fornia. Whether thera will be
partizau nominations or not will
depend upon tho action of the chiefs
of the two great political patties.
The tendency in many of the great
States, of late, has baen to disre
gard party iiues in these nomina
tions, each party taking half of the
members, and eaih putting forth
its best men, without regard to
their political activity. This was
tho rule in tho last Constitutional
Convention iv botli New York and
Pennsylvania. Owing to th*
absence of this distinctively politi
cal complexion, the last Constitu
tional Convention which assem
bled in the latter Stats developed a
remarkable degree of harmony,
and the politics of its members
could uot be inferred from their ac
tion on auy question. Many radi
cal reforms were made iv the old
State Constitution, aud probably
no body over served the people of
Pennsylvania so well. Such re
sults, however, aro only brought
about by concert of action amongst
the parly leaders, and as yet it is
not even certaiu whether a Con
stitutional Convention will be
called, many holdiug that tho ma
jority for the measure was not such
as tho law contemplates. The gen
eral impression is, however, that
the Legislature will make provis
ion for its assembling. Many
very important questions will come
before if, principally under the
heads of corporations and irriga
tion. Probably tho question of
oorporate rights and privileges,
their obligations to the people and
tbe powers which created them,
have been mors exhaustively dis
cussed during th* past live years,
not only in th* State of California,
but in all parts of ths United
States, than ia any twenty years
of our history.
Tins is a world of utility. The
modern people are acting ou the
maxim of Goethe, "lotus lake
care of the beautiful, the useful
will toko care of itself." Dickens's
conception of Gradgriud—the fel
low of hard fads—is met every
where. When we learn of men
who drop facts, aud adhere to iilea
ology, we delight in recordiug the
incident. In our reading we have
given an enthusiastic youth's re
ception to tho storlot of " Paul aud
Virginia," "Undine," and otber
chaste and exquisite productions
whicli show that man can be supe
rior to prosaic bread and butter—
things which generally dominate
the modern life, aud whloh pro
duced the famous Com Law Agi
tation of England. If we have not
been misinformed, Sauta Ana bas
proved herself as distinctively an
ideal community as "Paul and
Virginia" and "Undine" were
ideal creations. We are told that
Capt. Qoodali, of the Pacific Coast
Steamship Company, lately visited
Santa Ana, offered special induce
ments and tkat the business men
of that place stood by the McFad
den brothers to a man. If (hey
did, all we have to say is that the
age ot romance has come again,
and that we shall shortly need a
Rene or a Beracger to sing the dis
interested element of Southeru
California. We are ouly too
glad to record tbe story of a
community which ia Inde
pendent of, and above, the be
gui lenient of corporations, fragrant
or malodorous, under any name
whatever. It is a reminiscence—
or, rather, harbinger—of tho golden
age which was supposed to have
vanquished along with tha fable of
the golden apples of the Hesperides.
Tuk sale of lots East of Sauta
Ana, which comes oil' to-day, re
minds us of the wonderful growth
of that portiou of our county.
Santa Ana, Westminster and tho
Gospel Swamp sections are simply
miraoles of settlement, and they
have been possible because the ad
vantages of that neighborhood, ag
ricultural and otbei, have been of
a pronounced kind. The soil is not
surpaased lv the world, and the
same may be said of the climate.
While this region of country is
traversed by the Southern Pacific
Railway, it is perfeotly indepeud
ent of all railway communication,
having Newport Lauding to fall
back upon, and Anaheim Lnnding,
for that matter, if desired. Re
gions in which the tallest corn on
the American continent can be
made to grow side by sid] with tbe
orange, lime and othsr semi-tropi
cal vegetation, aro certain to come
into demand, especially wheu they
have Ihe advantage of both rail
way and ocean transportation.
This fact explains the remarkable
success of the progressive settle
ments of tha southern section of
Los Augeles county.
From San Diego comes the grat
ifying news that the river of that
name ia running. This is always
au infallible indication of a good
season. No year in which the San
Diego river ran has ever yet been
chronicled at a bad oue in South
ern California. We mention the
fact as an omen of good to this sec
tion. It is oue of thoss rivers
whicli, three years out of four, is
generally remarkable for the width
of its banks aud for the absence of
—strange thlug for a river—water.
While editiug a San Diego paper
we once received a letter from au
old steamboat mau in the Fast.
He desired to kuotv for what dis
tance up the Sail Diego river was
navigable for steamboats of a cer
tain draught, what was the popu
lation aligning it, etc., as lie
wished to com* out there, build or
buy a boat aud resume his old vo
cation. If the river serves no other
purpose than being a guarantee,
when it runs, of a good season iv
San Diego and elsewhere, it is a
good thing te have about.
On: Gospel Swamp and Los Ni
etos Valley farmers, who sold their
corn crops this year for prices
ranging from one dollar and flvt
cents to eighty-five cents a bushel,
will doubtless bs intsrsstsd in
learning that th* ruling price of
corn in many parts of Kansas is
fifteen cants a bushel, aud that, at
that price, it is found to be a
cheaper fuel thau either coal or
wood. From our situation, and
from th* peculiarities of
our climate and soil;—from our
moist lands and our facilities
for irrigation in dry seasons, Lot
Angeles is the corn county, par ex
cellence, of th* Stats, nnd th* sta
ple will thus always command a
fair price. We raise now more corn
in Los Angeles county thau is
raised in the whole of ths rest of
tbe State combined. W* have hsr*
tbe precise combination ef heat and
moisture in which Indiau corn
most reliably nourishes.

San Francisco, Jan. 21st.—Tbe
situation at tha various savings
banks remain unchanged, except
that, at the Odd Fellows' Bank,
tbe demand for withdrawals has
fallen off considerably, although
tho bank is still paying out con
stantly. Tbe rush at tbe Clay

same. Other banks report a slight
increase over ordinary drafts but
nothing of consequence.
Over 1,000 men have applied for
work at the filling in of Mission
Bay to-day. About 350 have been

San Francisco, Jan. 21.—At the
YVorkingmen's meeting In Oak
land, yesterday, the speeches mads
were moderate in tone, ths speak
ers holding, in effect, that, while
they endorsed Kearney's move
ment, tbey were net prepared to
endorse tbe extreme violence of his
course. They also regretted his ar
rest, as it compelled them, In self
defence, to support hint more fully
tban under ether circumstances.
Tbe Call to-morrow will publish
iuterviews with Governor Irwin,
Mayor Bryant, Kearney and oth
ers. With regard to tbe riot bill,
the Governor stated that he signed
It with considerable reluctance,
believing that it might, In some
oases, work undue hardship; that
some provision should bo made by
whicli persons convicted under it
of a minor infraction of Urn provis
ions aud puuislied by conliueuicut
in the county jail, should be re
lieved from the penalty attendant
upou conviction of felony of tbe
loss of oitizenship. He expressed
him.elf in favor of all necessary
measures for thu preservation of
the peace of the city, but intimat
ed the opinion that tho Mayor and
police authorities were perhaps uu
duly excited over the situation.
The Mayor announces his inten
tion ot carrying out to the fullest
extent the policy of suppressing
all incondiary meetings, lie will
ask the Board of Supervisors to
morrow to appoint, temporarily,
one hundred patrolmen fur special
service, so that tbe whole forco of
regular polioe can be devoted to
the work of breaking up meetings.
The State Convention of the
Kearney wing of ths Working
men's party of California is an
nounced to meet in this city to
morrow. The object is stated to
be to perfect an organization, adopt
a peruiauent platform, elect oftl
cers, eto. Tito Mayor says he will
uot allow Ibe Convention to hold
its sessions, as it comes under the
bau placed upon incendiary meet
ings. Kearney says the Conven
tion will meet if the hall can be
obtained for the purpose; other
wise, it will assemble in Oakland.

should have something to say con
cerning railroad legislation for the
Northwest. They were deeply in
terested in the Salt Lake and
Portland railroad project, because
it would bring them more speedily
into connection with existing
