OUR CALIFORNIA LETTER.
YUBA CITY, Feb. 8, 1879.
Frif.kd Tim.mo.ss: Everything quiet
on the Sacramento. The rain aliower of
two weeks ago were followed by cold
" Northers" and frosty nights, o that veg
etation U moving alowly. At present wri
ling however, we are having a strong south
wind, misting a little, and everything indi
cates rain. Plenty of rain has fallen in
the " Lower Country " for the growth of a
splendid crop, but here the wheat is barely
visible among the clods in the fields. Al
though the season is extremely lute and
dry, many of the farmers are yet hopeful
and I am told on good authority that a crop
of 40 bu. per acre of wheat, waa cut in
this vicinity some years sgo, Just eighty
days after sowing.
The Constitutional Convention ia still
" winding its alow length along." They
are now discussing the question of land
monopoly. Some rigid measures aheold be
adopted 011 thia point. The railroads and
non-rexident " hind sharks" will soon own
nil the unoccupied portions of the United
States. It does seem strange that so many
men of loose principals find their way to
the front in the management of publio
affaire. Land Commissioner Williamson
on his recent trip to the west, allowed him
self to be surrounded and fondled by lech
erous J.i ml grabbers ' and government
timber'thiere, until they have secured
aid in the furtherance of their nefarious
I almost fiel constrained lo say, treasonable
business. He scorned to have seen nothing
that he ahould have seen, and his remark
uble blindness to the facta that everywhere
stare an honest man in the face will aubject
him to much disagreeable comment.

A NEW TOPIC.
It is often a very putsling matter to
choose a topic on which to write. I am
inclined lo I Ii ink that neighborhood cor
respondents have the least trouble, and
next In them home reporters, I ahould
any. Hut one who sets liimacll the lak of
contributing live articles on any topics bn
news, takea a contract, to perform which.
he will need all possible aid. Having
reached a breathing spell in the desperate
struggle with the gaunt wolf of want, nnd
renumbering my obligations to friend
Timmons, I was vainly studying up an ac
ceplubla subject, when the nrrivalofacopy
of the Fremont Journal, place ! the desired
topic in easy reach. That paper gives no
credit for the article, and therefore I per
bapa ought not to mention the source
whence I derived it; because too much
wisdom i boiled down in the homily it ia
a sermon of the most solemn sort, the read
er will aee lo have emulated from the
brain. Indeed in laying the article before
my cheerful readers, my knowledge of
tinman nature impels me to dilute it with
about three pans of nonsense an easy
thing for me lo do lest they all die with
the blues. No apology ia intended in what
1 have said l have risen only "to ex
flain." The article to which I have a)
uded is headed
If, when I have done, my reader have
not learned something and meanwhile
been considerably amused, I shall conclude
tlmt I have mistaken my calling, without
doubt, and try something else. Coming at
once lo the subject, 1 remark that these

nor those well known penal helps which
sre so etlective in the hands ot rigid peds
gogues, but maxima to lie observed when
sen led nt the domestic board, or in plain
wortts, when we sit down to eat.
Now it may be premised that one ol our
most vulgar performance In public, is the
act of satisfying the natural appetite for
food with which perhaps unfortunately we
have been endowed ; nnd anything tending
to diminish the vulgarity ouclil to be
hailed with unaffected joy. Strenuous
and persistent attempts have Ions been
made lo render the unfortunately some
what necessary process of eating and drink
ing aa refined and elevating a playing on
the piano or "tripping the light fantastic
toe" you aee I approve of dancing but
though much ground has been gained, the
hid in litis direction have in part come
down to 11 Irom the musty age of the
past, and the field yet to be traversed ia
boundless to the keenest view. I doubt
not that aome of these rules for eating or
iginated in the primitive, delicate taste of
the waiter in the ark, and I know that the
profound subject will not have been ex
hausted when Uabrivl blow his ia.t
There i no time in thia article to dis
cuss these aage rules, but if we nil live full
opportunity will be afforded; and if we
don't live, the discussion will probably not
be needed, aa a different code of table laws
is in uae beyond the crave. At alt events
my continued contribution will have to be
given with leas extended intervals, and
the reader will hear from me oftener than

Complete Separation of Church and
the sec alar prrs to handle, we And onr
views very we'l expressed, and becked tip
by a minister of the gospel, in a late Issue
of the New York .'renins foil in relation
ship of church and state. It maintsina
that the peculiarly American theory of a
aelf-anpporting church ought to be carried
out ta i'a full and I' legitimate conclusion.
Protestants virtually disarm themse'vea of
argument, In resisting the demand of Ro
man Catholics, when they insist upon
reading the Bible in the publio schools.
Lesve lo the slate the special secn'sr edu
cation of the child and to the church and
fami y the reliriou Instruction. Upon
this point (be is eminent'y aonnd t
The absolute seperaiion of church and
state shonld include the total discontinu
ance of coiitribntlona of publio money
direct or indirect, to the support of any re.
iginua establishment. We have never
been able to aee the slightest difference in
principal between Ihe appropriation uf a
certain snm of money raised by tax to
particular chnrch and the release of that
church from a fat on its property to the
same amount. The cn-t of the benevolent
act in either case falls upon the taxpayers
generally. In the one cae Die sum is lev
ied directly upon all hut the church prop
erly. In the other case nil property but
that of Ihe church is obliged, in consequence
of this exemption, lo pay a larger share of
Ihe exHnses of government
A secular newspaper which contends for
this seperalion of church and alate perhaps
Incurs a suspicion of indifference to relig
ions education, or a carelrssnes a to
whether the church is maintained or nl
We are therefore glad to receive timely
and valuable reinforcements audi as comes
from Chrift church io.this cily. In hi
sermon last night Key. Dr. Shipman, the
rector of that Protestant Kpiscopal parish,
look atrong ground on bothol the questions
to which we have just referred. Remark
ing nn the atrangenesa of Ihe truth that it
look Christian nations more than seven
Heen centuries In begin lo give effect lo Ihe
words of the founder of Christianity
"My kingdom is not of this world" he
showed how in some psrticulars an effort
is still made to unite the two. While he
opposed Ihe Romanist's scheme lo " props
gate religion by mean of atate funds raised
for the support of common schools," he
held that tbe Protestants were " wrong in
claiming a legal right lo have Ihe Bible
read ns a religious doom at all. In omit
ting to teach religion." said he, " the pub
lie school ia not irreligious. It simply
leaves that branch of education where it
property netongs, in ine lamiiy and 11. e
church." In respect to the exemption of
church property from taxes Dr. Shipman
gave some interesting statistics. It ace ins
that the value of thi property is now
about five hundred millions of dollars.
Before many years, at the present rste of
increase, it will be three thousand millions.
In respect toall this property, he contended
that nothing more could bo asked than is
aaked in behalf of other property, that it
shsll have the protection 01 the govern
ment. "That which ia protected by gov
einment may justly be compelled to main
tain it." Wiien the operation of this rule
is suspended, the government really in
effect contributes to the support of the own
er of the property which profits by Ihe
suspension. Dr. Shipman's srgnments
against the direct or indirect support of
the church, in whole or in part, by the
state were substantially those which we
have presented. Hia conclusions were set
forth in this forcible way
" I would like to aee all chnrch property
through! this land taxed to the last dollars
worth, not merely as a matter of justice,
but in the interest of ruligion itwlf. The
effect of snvthing like compulsion in the
matter of religion is to engender prejudice
against it. Tlie church cannot surrender
her proud iiosilion of being a kingdom
not of this world without suffering for it
in tbe blight of her spiritual life. The
churehea may fight this question, but soon
er or later the battle will go against them,
and their retreat, I fear, will tie not only
with dented armor, but with banners
Ihe church winch cannot maintain it
self without the help of the state may well
be allowed to full ; but we believe lhat
curious lack of faith is shown by tlie con
tention that the church cannot be wholly
self-supporting. If all public subsidies
should be withdrawn from it its prosperity
won lit not be impaired in the slightest de
gree ; while some embarrassing questions
which, now nnd then anae in the adminis
tration of public affairs would lie set
rest finally by a consistent application
the principal of an absolute seperalion
church and state.
