-7 j7- i The Yorktown Celebration. 7 -
Yobktown, . October . — The military
review was successfully carried out to-day.
All the organizations presented a fine appear
ance,and' marched well. The route was
about four miles long, over broad fields. An
hour and j twenty minutes was consumed in
passing a given point. ,_ When the procession
reached the - grand stand General Hancock
and staff rode at ' the ' head, but then fell out
of line. President Arthur, his Cabinet, the
foreign guests and other dignitaries reviewed
the troops from the stand. General Hancock
stated to a guest that there were 9,500 men in
line. J* The States represented by volunteers
were Georgia, New Jersey, Delaware, Penn
sylvania,* Massachusetts, ; Maryland, Scuth
Carolina, New Hampshire, • New
York, North * Carolina, Rhode Island, Ver
mont, Kentucky, Michigan and Connecticut.
i The President was quite enthusiastic over
the magnificent display. The only colored
troops in line were < two companies . from
Richmond, composing part of the First Vir
ginia Regiment. They were loudly cheered
by the spectators from the North.
: In the afternoon General Hancock gave a
reception '. on * board the steamer St. John.
Among the guests were President Arthur,
David Davis (President pro tern, of. the Sen
ate), the French and German visitors, officers
of ] the r army and: navy, the Congressional
Commission, Governors and other officers of
Yobktown, October 20th. — Baron yon
Steuben spoke in German as follows yester
day, in response to President Arthur's ad
dress:*, -.yfyry .--.
i, Mr. President : In the words of welcome to your
foreign guests which you have just uttered, you re
membered and mentioned in kind terms the family
of Yon Steuben. ' I assure you that as soon as . the
tidings of our hearty and enthusiastic reception ; in
this country, following the friendly invitation to us
by the President of the United States, were received
in Old Fatherland, there was heaitfelt rejoicing
,among aJi classes in every part of our country- £ It
was a new and striking evidence of a common sym
pathy that . existed " between . the American ' and
German j peoples. ■ It proves that the ' American
people, .which, thus appreciates and hastens
to - honor I the great dead, stands at the bight
of civilization and culture. Only this morning I
received a cablegram from my country, with hearty
congratulations upon this happy commemoration
day, so important in the history of the United
States, ani I believe, Mr.- President, that I may
express the sincere congratulations of the whole
German people, and of the German Government,
upon this auspicious day. Permit me also, Mr.
President,' to return to you, for ail our Yon Steuben
family, the warmest thanks cf ' our full hearts,
thanks which I cannot adequately express,' for the
bounteous hospitality and for the cordial greetings
\%htcn We met on every liand,%t everj «tep,froni
the hour of our landing until } ou crowned th*, wlioW
with your welcome to us, Ihu representatives cf our
great kinsman. . I can only say to you, again and
again, we thank you. ir - -f . ..-*..*
- 7 Affairs nt the National Capital. .
• Washington, ;" October - : — President
Arthur, the Cabinet and j Senate™ who at
tended the celebration at Yorktown yester
day, are expected to return to the city to-mor
row morning. It is thought doubtful whether
all the absent Senators will teach Washing
ton by noon to-morrow, when the Senate is to
meet. For this reason it is thought and ex
pected that the Cabinet nominations will not
bs mads till Saturday, and perhaps not till
Monday of next week. All the Cabinet slates
thus far mada up are he thing more ncr less
than guesswork. Ex-Senator Sargent is con
fidently named for the position of head
of the J Navy or : Interior * Department.
Either Judge Settle, of y North Caro
lina, „ or 7 General r-. Lingstreet . will
probably be the Southern ' Republican in the
Cabinet, while Governor Foster, of Ohio, it
is said, will be called to ths head of the Post
office Department. ; Whoever may be nomi
nated, and whether the entire Cabinet, or one
part, it. is thought will be promptly con
firmed." INo hitch exists over 1 any nomina
tion already mad", except in the case of Dud
ley for Commissioner of. PensioLS, and the
antagonism against him j will probably not
protract the session. ■ , The outlook to-night is
favorable for an adjournment next week, un
less the Democrats attempt ' to elect a new.
Secretary of the Senate. "- Soon after } the
death of President Garfield an attempt was
made to show that the term of offi of Post
master-General James expired yesterday (the
19:h).' ; In support of this theory the law was
quoted fixing the tenure of office cf the Post
master-Geceral, which provides that the term
of that official shall be for and during the
term of the President by whom he is ap
pointed, and for a month thereafter, unless
sooner removed. It was * contended • that
General '■■■ Garfield's term .expired if - with
his " life, J and therefore "t the : term " cf ' his
Postmaster-General would - expire at that
event. As President 7 Arthur •' left - for
Yorktown, well knowing that he would be
absent over the 19.h, without reappointing
James or his successor, it may be reasonably
concluded that he dees not put the construc
tion on the law that other? have. 7 First As
sistant J Postmaster-General Tyner evidently
does not I intend Ito resign without at least
ascertaining from President Arthur the : rea
sons for displacing him. 7 The request for hia
resignation was made by Postmaster General
James, J and ' not by the President himself.
Tyner declines to talk about the matter until
he has seen Arthur. "■ The statement published
in to day's New York papers, intimating that
ha j had suppressed the \ report ! prepared by
himself two years ago, which reflected on the
" star route " service, he pronounces falsa. ". •

New Yobk, October 20th.— The Tribune
publishes . a sketch ! from 'Archibald Forbes,
the English journalist, of the proceedings at
Yorktown, illustrating the feeling towards
England. V* He ■ says ■ President * Arthur gave
the key-note at the "very commencement of
the singularly graceful and I tasteful observ
ance In which he . inaugurated the proceed
ings. - The i French I representatives spoke t f
England with I no less genial | consideration,
and the President's * order commanding that
the British flag should be saluted at the "close
of the ceremonial was not less kindly in spirit
than it wis tender and j beautiful in its word
ing,' read by Blame in accents that were fer
vent with emotion. It was indorsed by the
audience with a storm of enthusiasm that told
how welcome it was to their sympathies. It
is to be regretted that bo j official British per
son was present to convey to Queen Victoria
some idea of . the warmth J evidenced by the
President's ■: graceful *■' compliments, * and * es
pecially, by the mention ; of " her Majesty's
.'.-'■•-.. .' <.oi*!«l ? nnd llunlinalon.
y- New',; York, October 20th.— Public to
day says : The association of Gould and Hunt
ington in the Western J. Union j Directory has
attracted a great deal of attention. „It had
been supposed by many that these men were
radically hostile in J feeling and interest, and
there were pending suits at law I between the
Texas-Pacific and the Southern Pacific which
gave some reason J for the belief. J Sicca the
election of Huntington, "-. however, it is asset t
ed; that he has ; declared '; that the Texas-
Pacific and Southern Pacific * will soon meet
and : connect | on 1 mutually {favorable ■ term?.

T The Speakership of ; the J House.
;*S* Washington, October r — The Speak
ership ef the I House is as much a matter of
pure speculation as the President's Cabinet.
Not lesa than : a dozen ' have pretensions and
hopes, including Butterwortb, Calkin?, Davis
of Illinois; Horr, Houk, McCook and others.
Houk thinks the ' Southern Republicans de
serve recognition in J the ; Speakership, with a
view tf building them up. The element of
doubt as to J tha J control of the next House
multiplies, >. the -7 candidates v each think
ing 7* he *."; can command ry some • '; special
strength ? which = the y others y- cannot '; to
secure . the * organization. The Republicans
must y elect •. three " out 7: of "" the '-'; four
Congressman in New York next month,; but
the contingencies favor the Republicans, who
aie likely to organize - the Jj House. '"■ JBrumm,'

to have General Longstreet made a member
of President Arthur's Cabinet, " as a repre

a 'no more •■ undignified spectacle ever pre

cursion.' : 7 Upon arriving at Oroville the party
was met by a large delegation of prominent
citizens, representing both sides of the debris
question. ....,,;. :, .■-....... yff-f'ff:.'.
'' Carriages ' were * ready : for the occasion,
' which took the party to the J Miocene mice,
: against which .the suit ; : recently brought »
' pending in the United States Circuit Court.
; The mine is situated almost opposite, but »
little above on the north side of the Feather
river, and only about a mile ' from J the town..
,In crossing over to the north < side the ooudi
. tion r.f ( the river, as charged since hydraulic
* mining commenced, was pointed out to the
committee, j The original . bed * cf * tbe river
between the banks was shown to have been
about 600 feet, and which is , now filled up to
, a height of thirty feet or more with 'round;
bluish boulders from - the mines, | ranging in
size from two to twelve inches in diameter.
Several hydraulic mines lie below the Miocene
mine, occupying the entire bluff on that side
of the river, but some of which mines have
not been worked for the past ten or twelve
years. :, It was stated that ' the oveiflows of
last year formed a bar of such heavy tailings
part way across the river, and ' another simi
larly formed from the working of the Hewitt
mine, immediately on the opposite side < f the
river, that a dam was created which flooded
the principal streets of the town, and washed
away the gas house-and other property. As
showing the velocity and, strength with
which the flood swept through the town, it
was stated that an iron safe, weighing 3 200
pounds, was carried from the demolished gas
work?, and was found about two months ago
over half a mile below, covered with debris ;
also that a portable engine,' weighing 3,000 '
pounds, was * carried soma : distance and de- j
posited safely in a deep hole. '..' ; . ;■'_..- -..-'.
jß_TW__ai TWO FIRES.
' In answer to a remark of a mining mao,
that it would | causa mush hardship and in- j
jury to a portion of the people residing in j
Oroville to have ths hydraulic mines stopped, |
a member of the committee replied: "You
folks at Oroville are in a devil of a fixbe
tween two fires. If you stop mining you will
starve, aud if you don't you will get drowned.
What are yon going to do .''.'. -
.. " We will move tha town up higher on the
bank," was the good-natured answer.
Was shown to the committee by the Super- j
intendent, S. A. . Harris, who, in ■ answer J
to J:J inquiries, informed -.. the members :
that the -" mining claim of the ' com
pany "• covers 540 • acres ; "-' that 'it ' cost,
when opened and; ready for operation,
including machinery, pipes, water privileges,
etc, 8180,000; that the mine had J been in j
operation about fifty days when it waa shut ,'
down by the injunction, and during the fifty j
days washed down about 200,000 cubic y irds '
of earth, with a net profit of about SI.OOO per ;
day. The company uses 2,000 miners' inches j
of water under a 300-feet pressure, It em
ploys eleven men. ' The earth above the hard 1
pan, upon which J the metals are found, is j
about "0 feet in depth. : 7 : . • ■ '
This mine has no dumping grounds for
all this land, has it, except iuto the Feather
river V inquired a member of the committee;
'•No," replied the Superintendent ; " there
; is no other way it can go in, working the hy
draulic process." yf'"- y--'fyy.
•' The party was next driven to the ' mine of '
the Oroville Mining acd Irrigating Company;
Which is immediately opposite Oroville, and !
covers 1 500 acres by its mineral land pat- :
eats.. This mine is not being worked, and in ■
_s*_-i*.-(_T 10 an __fte*Mo_»tl*S| O. I*. 1.. .--_,t*,, < i, a J
manager, stated that this ' mice was shut j
down in May last, at tho time the injunction !
was issued. asaiost the Miocene mine, and j
that none of tha hydraulic mines in this vi- :
cinity have since been worked. Being asked
the reason for stopping, lis said his mine was '
short of water, and it Wiis also thought that j
Oroville might bring suit and stop tbem.' He ;
further said : J '.'There is no bed-reck at this ■
point, g and .the '-. lower down ; we . go
the *, richer 'it 7 i*. . But': we can •
only work it I down to ■ a certain depth for «
want of a dl to dump the tailing*. We must !
have at least half an icch fall .to the foot, in •
order to work and carry ! off the heavy tail- j
ings, and you can see from this that the !
depth to which we can work by the hydraulic j
process grows less constantly as we go back '.
into the claim. Ido not think we can work '
to exceed 100 acres out of .* the 1,500 by hy- .
draulic action. | We employ, when in opera- :
tion, eight men. No Chinese ever work upon .
th? premises, exopt those '■ who work upon I
their own account. We rent to the Chinese
the privilege of drift mining, all they wish '
to buy, each paying $2 50 per month. :; Our
mine occupies about a mile of ! frontage upon !
the river, and , of course we have
nowhere else to dump but in the river, os you j
see. .The average hight of the bank which j
would ba washed down j upon the ICO acres j
which I have said we "can mine would be
about * forty • feet. ' The ; remainder ■ of ' the ',
claim is rich, and can ba worked by drifting, j
and tha whole cau be ; worked down to the ;
water level by the drifting process." JJ
As the party returned to the Oroville side, -
crossing the river upon a temporary bridge st
the upper end of the S O/oville Company's
mine, the committee observed and remarked
that the dumping along the front of this miae
had occupied about one-third cf the width of j
the 7- river 'channel, .„ and forced " the '
flow :of **. the ; ' river ' along ' the Oro- !
ville ' i side * and 7 ; partially * blockaded ■: i's :
passage. . - The ,; question J as „', to 7 the
right of a private party "or corporation to '
permanently occupy or destroy a portion of j
the , channel jof a public * water course j was j
discussed among tbe members of the commit- j
tee. -'Attention was "also directed to tho fact p
that the dumping from the Hewitt mine, on j
the opposite side of the river to tbe one under
consideration,' and a little above, hail at that 1
point * forced tha ' channel I along I the other '
bink of the river, and that the further dump- j
ing from the . Miocene by . the hydraulic pro- J
cess would inevitably increase the danger to -
Oroville, at a time of future . high water,' in I
proportion' to . the . amount of - tailings * de- 1
posited. ; i
'-- No further examinations were made in this
vicinity, and at 2 F. M. the party returned to i
Marysville. Upon arriving at the line of the '
upper levee of * the .' city the " train * stopped j
and the press J representatives were taken in
carriages to examine tbe levee system of tha
city and the principal industrial establish- 1
ments. * - 7* * . yyy-' '■ .'.; _yy : •---.:•- ■'-. j

in their statements, and that ' they had not

acd had said that as soon as she got a divorce
he was " going . to : try ; to . marry .' her. ; s Giro
showed him all the | letters from her and his
replies, 7 which witness ' corrected, Giro not
writing English well. These letters purporting
to be letters frsm Mrs. Christiancy to 1 Giro,
which wero put in evidence,' were ■■ not really
her letters * wbich he had seen, but entirely
different in expression '-. and sentiment. Giro J
told witness that he did not care a damn about
the letters being published, as ho had a friend ,
who could imitate any kind of writing. '-r Giro
was greatly incensed when he found that Mrs."
Christiancy would net marry him, and swore
that he ; would get even, and : said he had j

so with him to a betel here, and he would
