A Singular Explosion in San
In Tuesday's Alta was published a
full account of a terrible, and, at tho
same tmo, unaccountable explosion at
South Beach, near the foot of Third
street, on board tho sloop Sycamore,
by which Charles It. Hunt lost his lifo.
Ihe explosion of an ordinary brass
ship's lamp, with such force as to shat
ter thoenbin in kindling wood, kill tho
benrer of the lamp, and even drive
pieces of the metal deep into tho deck,
accompanied by a noiso liko tho report
of a cannon, was something not easily
to bo explained on any theory based
on the supposition that tho contents, of
the lamp were simply coal oil, or even
camphenc or benzine.
Un investigation of the circumstances
CorOncr Harris has probably hit upou
facts whnh wfll explain tho whole mat
ter The story is n curious one. The
men on board tho sloop say that they
went ashore at Bed Kock somo weeks
since, and while at tho Eantrnncso
Mine, there located, obtained somo
fluid which they supposed to be oil.
How they obtained it docs not yet ap
pear, but they state thatsome of it was
placed in the coal oil can, kept on board
lor filling the lamps.
"shortly thcrealtcr some one took tho
can to oil the axle of the truck used for
hauling freight on board the schooner,
and on the truck being used an explo
sion followed. Itwasthen ascertained
to the satisfaction of the men that
tho supposed oil was nitro-gly-
cenne, which had been taken to
Hed Bock to bo used in blasting in tho
mine. They thoreupon turned tho
dangorous fluid overboard, and coming
to mis port again, huu tho can tilled
with coul oil nt a drug storo.
On examination of the body of Mr.
Hunt, tho coroner discovered that the
hole iu the abdomen made by the entry
of n piece of tho lumy was of small site,
and appeared an it made by u sharp in
strument, llns appearance deceived
Mr. Hastings, nt the United States
Marino Hospital, and caused him to
suspect that murder hud been commit
ted. On opening tho body it was found
that the brass wick tubes of the lamp
only had penetrated the abdomen
I hey had passed through tho lower
part of the ttlomirch, ranging upward
and backward, und entered the liver,
where a second explosion had taken
Iho tubes wcro torn into minute
shreds by this explosion, and the frag
ments flying in all directions cut tho
lower part of the liver into pieces hard
ly larger than a kernel of corn. Tho
theory suggested by theso facts is that
enough of tho nilro-glycerinoremaincd
sticking to the sides of tho ,can when
it was refilled with oil to produce the
explosion. This floated on tho surface
of the coal oil or mingled with it, r.d
found iU way into the lump, whero it
in sumo manner, through friction iu
screwing down the tubes, a suddon jar
or heul from the burning wick, ex
ploded with tho tcrriblo force a.d fatal
result already stated. Coroner Harris
is determined to havo tho mystery
cleared up, if possible, and hns accord
ingly submitted tho contents ot tho
can to a chemist, who will analyze
it and report on its character at the in
quest." San Francisco Alta, Oct. 10.
The Chinese Question.
Tho Boston Post says that in lessthau
ten years tho negro labor question will
bo lohtin tho Chineso question. Thero
is probably more in this than willicen-
orally be admitted. Tho Chineso nro
swarming upon our Western const, and
gradually becoming a. power. They
are held in detestation by Culiforniaus
and trouted like peons. In California
they cannot testify ugaiost others.
What will be the result of tho intro
duction of their Pagan doctrines and
practices cannot be foreseen. Doubt
less an order of fanatics will arise in
New Englmid in their interest and
the negro programme will bo" re-enac
Under the pronosod Constitutional
Amendment, it these Chinese nro not
allowed to vote, they aro not to bo
counted in tho basis of representation
in Congress. Under theso circum
stances it would be amazing if Califor
nia should adopt a rule that may de
prive her of a portion of her political
power, unless she consents to share it
with these degraded Pagans. Tho
amendmont is intended to fore Chi
nese suffrage as well as negro sufTrago
upon tho States. Cin. Enquirer.
A Test of Loyalty in Maryland.
At tho lute eloction in Baltimore lite
Kadi cul judges at tho polls adopted
soma very extraordinary toBtu of loy
alty, upon which they made the vote
deponu. The Baltimore Guzetto thus
speaks of tliem :
"At many of the precincts every
posniblo obstruction was thrown in the
way of tho Conservatives, and a great
muny were entirely rejected, when of
fering thoir votes alter their uunies
were found on tho registry list, but
they were required to swear 10 answer
bulIi questions as might u propound
ed to them, and )mo oftho questions
put w'ero of the mont trifling and un
necessary character. A gentleman in
tho 'ienth Ward had answered all tho
questions satisfactorily ; tl.o question
was asked, "tSuppofio it battle was now
going on between the Nortl:rn and
the Southern armies, which would you
desire to be successful?" That was
question which the judge had no right
to propound, und because the gonllo-
niau declined to answer it, he was not
porniittoU to voto.
"in the l;igiitli ward, tho question,
'It a ugro regiment was in front
1 ptfirsburg, and in conflict with tho
rebels, which would 3-011 want towhip?'
That was thought to bo a poser : but
t did not stop the voters from exercis
ng their right of citizenship lis will bo
soen by the return's of the election."
Another voter was ask, upon olierv
ering to register himself, if he prefer
red a gold dollar to agrconback. Up
on his answer being in the affirmative,
ho was not allowed to register, being
disloyal. The Radical press all over
the country have been committed in
favor of this way Of holding thoBordcr
Stales in subjection, considering it per
fectly legitimate and proper".
Departure of Hon. L. D. Campbell
and General Sherman for
Mexico—Energetic Steps Taken
by the President—His Letter
to the Emperor Napoleon.
New Iork, JSov. 12. Pertinent to
the depurture of Gen. Sherman and
Minister Campbell on tho Susquehanna
on Saturday lor era Cruz, tho Herald
of this morning says that the mission
ot tho lormcr is to confer with the
French General Casllenau tosuperviso
tho transfer Of authority, and to watch
American interests, and adds: The
whole credit of thisgrnnd undertaking
belongs to President Johnson and tho
Emperor Napoleon, and may bo fairly
divided between them.
As we are informed, Mr. Johnson,
more than a year ago, became satisfied
that this Mexican imbroglio, if left to
tho red tape diplomatic correspondence
then goin on between Sir. Seward and
31. Drouyn do Lhu-s, would drng its
slow length along to the end of tho ex
isting administration without any other
result than additional complications,
and that accordingly somo shorter rond
to a sottiemont was demanded.
Satisfied upon this point, ns wo have
been further advised, President John
son rcsolvod to take the mnttcr into
his own hnnds.nnd did so in a familiar
letter to Napoleon, frankly setting
forth tho inflexible objections of the
people of the United States to tho Eu
ropean uovernment over Jlexico in
any shape, and that the removal of his
imperial establishment and tho rein
statement 01 tne Mexican Jicpublic in
the Mexican Capital wcroindispensible
to tho maintainanco of peaceable rela
tions between Franco and tho United
From the roceiptof that familiar let
ter, Napoleon began to fully realize
the necessity of his retirement from
Mexico, and so begun ' the ways and
means of a graceful compliance. The
settlement contemplated, as we learn,
embraces the full re-establishment of
the Mexican Republic, and a treaty of
peace and friendship with it on the
part of Franco, including tho 2ayraent
of the indemnities or claims, which
were the causo oftho original armed
coalition of Franco, England and
Tho United States will stand seeurit
for theso indemnities, and will l'urr.is
tho Kcpublic ot Mexico tho funds to
meet them, in consideration of the
cession to our Government of the
Northern mineral States or departments
of'Conhuila, Chihuahua, Sonora and
Lower California, with tho great Gulf
of California und all its commercial
advantages. Butthcgrund feature of
this settlement will bo the practical
vindication of tho Monroo doctrine of
non intervention in tho domestic affairs
of the independent States of this conti
nent; and from this settlement we may
expect this doctrine to become tho es
tablished law in this hemisphere.
