Yesterday was ushered in, promptly
at 12 o'clock Monday night, by the ringing
of all the fire bells, the sounding of steam
whistles in tbe railroad yards and in the
harbor, the firing of small arms and joyous
shouting from the healthy throats of those
who happened to be on the streets. Thb
Bulletin's local page was just being closed
when the confusion of sounds began.
The officers arrested one Holcomb
Monday for being ou a quiet drunk, and

In spite of, or, perhaps, because of,
the ugly weather yesterday, there ware sev
eral disturbances by river men on Ohio
levee. Chief Myers "ran in" two of them
and iu both cases had to prove that be was
"a better man" than the disturbers, in a
hand to hand fisticuff, or a catch-as catch-
can wrestle. Both prisoners were big fel
lows, but he "downed" them and sent them
into "winter quarters" for the night.
A well known "tough" known as "Jim
Miller," but really named M. F. Meyers, a
towboat mate, was caught by Chief Myers
and Constable Martin yesterday afternoon
in the act of knocking down a man who
was almost helplessly drunk, on Ohio levee.
At his trial before Magistrate Comings he

which tbe defendant swore like a trooper.
Officer McTigue yesterday arrested a
white man named Frank Miller upon tbe
charge of stealing an overcoat from Rich
ard Farnsworth at the house of George
Tanner. The officer found the coat at
George Robinson's pi ice of business, where
the thief had sold it for $3.50, claiming it
as his own. A rewaid of $10 had been of
fered by Mr. Farnsworth, for tbe return of
the coat, and tbe officer got the reward.
Magistrate Comings bound Miller over in
the sum of $200 yesterday. The coat is
valued at $15.
O ie of the subjects that have occupied
tbe public mind hereabouts to some extent
is how much tbe dry goods and clothing
men paid Gen. Hazen to get up a special
blizzard in order to enable them to dispose
of their extra stocks of overcoats and seal
skin Bacques before the dawn of the spring,
gentle Annie. Our merchants are no block
beads; they are generally live, sharp fellows
in case of an emergency and fully exemplify
the old sayings that "an honest man gathers
no moss," and "a rolling stone is the noblest
work of God" or words to that effect.
An interesting announcement in tbe
matrimonial way is the approaching wed
diug of Bishop Warren, of tbe Methodist
Episcopal church, who has been engaged
for seme time to Mrs. Cliff, of Colorado, tbe
widow of the famous catile king. The

twee n $4,000,000 and $6,000,000. She has
tbe handsomest house in Denver, the lar
gest ranch in the state, and is a large owner
of city property, grazing lands, mines, etc.
She is a Methodist, and Bishop Warren
met her while pursuing his Episcopal rm
tations in the northwest. Afteward bo met
her in Europe, and they spent some time
together in P ris. Both have children.

A dispatch has beta received from
Paris announcing thai Bartlioldi's statue of
"Liberty Enlightening the World" has been
entirely finished. But scaicely enough
money has been raiaed in New York so far
to pay for the foundation of the pedestal
in Bedloe's Island, on which the statue is
to be placed. In all it will require $250,

over oue-fourth has been raised.
Last evening tbe report was circulated
that the new Tenth street sewer was leak
ing. A little pond of yellowish water that
had gathered in the bottom opposite the
custom bouse, and a stream pouring out of
these'erat that point, was the cause of
tne report. But a personal examination of
the sewer outlet, by the mayor and Com
missioner Biird, preved that not a drop of
water was coming in through it. Tbe pres
ence of tbe water is easily explained in this
way: A neat little rain fell Sunday and
Monday after the sewers had been closed;
the bottom referred to is the lowest place
in the city; water naturally seeks tbe lowest
place and will get there if there is any way
to do it thai does not involve too much
climbing; and as the sewers afford direct
communication between this lowest place
and other parts of the city, the rain-water
naturally and easily finds is way through
them into the said lowest place. The
deep yellow color of the water is also easily
accounted for and may be traced directly
to the newly-gravelled streets, which shed
sufficient quantities of clay to discolor the
whole city lull of water.
Postmaster Murphy was at work yes
terday upon his quarterly report to the de
partment at Washington, and he found that
tbe reduced rate of postage had made but
very little difference in tbe receipts of tbe
office during this first quarter. He believes
that, at tbe end ot the year, if not sooner,
the receipts purely from local business will
be as much as they were before tbe reduc-
tisn was made and, perhaps more; and then
it will not be long before we may demand
a free delivery system, even it congress
makes no change in the postal law, reduc
ing the amount of receipts necessary to en.
title a community to such a system. Tbs
reason why the reduction in postage has
had s i little effect upon tbe receipts of the
office here is that there has been an increase
in the demand tor stamps of tbe larger
denomination. Business men who do
much of their advertising with circulars
know, from their own experience, perhaps,
the tendency of the recipient of an unsealed
letter with a one-cent stamp, to toss it
promptly into the waste basket without
even glancing at the contents. Whereas
a sealed letter is always torn open and its
contents examined. The.usu of one-cent
envelopes, unsealed, is, therefore, decreas
ing, while that of two-cent sealed envelopes
increases in proportion; hence the result in
respect to receipts as stated above.
The lynching of four negroes in Yazoo
City, Mississippi, on Stturday night as a
measure of retribution for the death ot
three white men, turns the eyes of the
country on that unfortunate state. The
question involves something deeper than
the mere politics of the day it is a ques
tion of race, especially perplexing in such
states as Mississippi, Louisiana and South
Carolina, where tbe negroes are most num
erous and most ignorant. Their antagonism
to tbe whites dates from tbe days of "recon
struction," and is directly traceable to the
methods employed to bring it about. In
the states long dominated by carpet-baggers
and adventitious citizens, of whom
the turbid Tourgee stands for a specimen,
a condition of things exists which can be
found no where else in tbe south. Negroes
and whites watch each other with mutuul
distrust and mutual fear. Being the most
ignorant, and tbe least capable of self-control,
the negro is generally the aggressor.
His lawlessness frequently provokes law
lessness; murder is meted out to avenge
muider, and the fire is stirred with the,
sword. In such states as these, where the
negro population is very Urge, the only
hope for averting bloodshed in the strug
gle for supremacy between tbe two races,
is the education of the negro through suc
cessive generations until he acquires what
be does not now possess-BufBcient intelli
gence to discern his boat interests and to
maintain his rights by tho aid of bis rea
son rather than bis passions.
WESTERN R AMBLINGS.
Special Corretpondence to Th Bulletin :
Los Angelos, Cal., Deo. 14 '83. Having
concluded our ramblings in and around the
great cjty of San Francisco, ws wended our
way to the wharf and aboard one of the
magnificent steam ferryboat that ply be
tween the city and Oakland, we set out for
the lajter place, distant some eight miles.
It was a lovely evening and the smooth bay
shone in glassy splendor. Oakland is to
San Francisco, what Brooklyn is to New
York. Many of the business men of Sao
Francisco 'reside in Oakland, and owing to
the intercommunication between the two
cities tbe travel baok and forth is surpris
ingly large. The western terminus of the
Central and Southern Pacific R. R. is at
Oakland. In passing up the bay one has
a good view of Goat and Angel Islands on
wnich are government garrisons. The great
rivers, Sacremento and San Joaxuin, empty
into the bsy and steamers may be seen al
most continually going up or coming down
those highways of traffic. Oakland is a
city of beauty and wealth and full of prom
ise; its prosperity has been most wonderful.
In 1850, where tbe city is now located, oak
groves, wild mustard and wild oats grow
in abundance and the whole country bord
eriug on the bay was a wild stock range un
der tbe rule of Spaniards. Tbe brothers by
the name of Patten and a man by the name
of Chase were the first white men who es
tablished themselves on the bays on tbe
site of Oakland. In 1860 it was a small
village, in 1870 had a population of 1200
and now has a population of 60,000 includ
ing her suburbs and tbe prosperity of tbe
city continues in a surprising manner. It
is well laid out, streets wide and clean,
water excellent and claims to be the health
iest town in the state.
The city has a combined length of 200
miles of open streets, being grand drive
ways, lined with either business blocks or
imposing residences surrounded with
beautiful lawns and evergreen trees, or
beautiful parks wbicb the city takes special
pride in keeping in fine order. She has
$6,000,000 invested in manufactories, giv
ing employment to four thousand bands.
Tbe street csr facilities of the city are ex
cellent. Some fifteen free bigb school
buildings and about tbe same number of
private institutions of learning with one of
the best universities in the Union.. Tbe
city has about 30 churches,' most of them ot
a grand appearance and of costly construc
tion. Tbe First Congregational church has
an auditorium 00 feet square and cost $80,
000. Tbe Gallindo hotel is a fine structure,
cost $100,000. The railroad depots are all
that one could desire. The University, of
Cal., receives students from the age of 10
up, tuition free. Male and female are
granted like privileges in all the depart
ments, including that of medicine. A visit
aloog tbe shaded driveway to tbe fish ranch
and to Piedmont Springs gives one pleasure
and is of much interest. To tske a batb
in one of those establishments fitted up on
purpose at Alameda, a suburban town, is a
pleasure not soon forgotten.
Mills' Ssminary in the foot bills is situa
ted in a most charming tbe finest ladies'
seminary in the state.
Taking all in all one visiting Oakland at
any season of tbe year, seems loath to leave
the place where so much of interest, to the
lover ot the beautiful, is found, and tbe
climate is so delightful.
Starting out from the grand depot, the
iron horse takes the traveller rushing north
ward through fertile sections country and to
all appearance near Mt. Diablo which rears
its summit 3,896 feet above the sea level.
Wagon roads are constructed to its top,
from wbenie one can have a grand pano
ramic view of the surrounding country,
villages, cities, bays, rivers and the blue
waters of the Pacific may be seen afr off:
with a glass can distinctly see into the
streets of San Francisco, discern the moving
throngs of people, while to the north the
beautiful valleys and streams stretch out
in one grand picture of loneliness.
Arriving at Sacremento City, tbe capital
of tbe state, nothing of special interest at
tracts the attention of the visitor other than
the usual noise and confushion of hotel
runners and hack drivers. From an eleva
ted position one can have a fine view of the
broad river and adjacent country. The bot
toms along tbe river are very productive,
and seem to increase in fertility with every
overflow ot the Sacremento river. Fruits of
various kinds flourish well here, end the
gardens are green all the year. The popula
tion of the city is some 25,000 to 80,000.
There is not that same degree of hurry and
bustle noticed at some other places in the
state, however the city does a large amount
of business in way of distributing supplies
to many points tributary to it as a trade
centre. As in most of the cities and towns
in California, the heathen Chinese seems to
take a prominence in the line ot ordinary
servitude, and from what we can discover,
the American born men and women ot tbe
period are perfectly willing they shall do
it, while the men a goodly number, at
least lounge about street corners, or in
places ot idle resort, while the women spin
street yarn and patronize stalls where yellow
covered literature abounds, but then such
seems to be tbe inevitable destiny of na
tiona, despite the yearnings for sn embargo
to be placed on emigration, and a higher
standard of civilization be imposed upon
the Anglo 8axon race.
Goodchurcbes abound in the city, and
schools are well patronized.
From Sacremento to go to Southern Cali
fornia, an angle of about sixty degrees must
be made, and away we go over desert,
plain and fertilo valley.
"Lathrop, twenty minutes for dinner'
Yes and how glad to know there is another
chanco to satisfy a hungering after food;
but alas) for human expectations. The
waiters seem to be off duty and the cooks
out of season, but tbe man who looks after
