THE SACBAMESTO RIVES. The Sacramento river yesterday Btood at the six-foot nine-inch m:rk. The water Id the draw at the railr ad bridge between thin city and Washington is seven feet deep. Jußt below the bridge it is cix feet deep, and that v abont the average depth of the channel along the entire city front. In the neighborhood of Princeton and Cc i-iia the river ia much lower than it was at this tima last year. Captain Page, who 'ime down from the upper Bicramento in charge of the steamer Dover on Tuesday, re ports considerable trouble In navigating the upper poctfoa if tbe river, owing to the low water and t>n*gs in the channel. Tne river is notdeep enough to float rchoouers or deei>draft steamers or barges. The barges :.- i ij the grain trade draw wh<n leaded about three and a half feet of water. Tae channel f.-otn tha mou!:h of the Feather to t.hi* city in better than it h:i< been f.r years. 1,-itt Sunday a wheat-laden barge «•» grounded on a bar n^ar the mouth '.f Steam boat slough. This, however, could hive been avoided had the pilot been better acquainted with tha channel. All the boats navigating bstween thU city and Ran Francisco are com pelled tv go through what ia known as Old river a:.a not through Steamboat slough, ac formerly. Steamboat slough is several mile 1! shorter th»n tbe old channel, but it is filled with »-> much dabris that at the pres&nt low stage of water it has not sufficient dei>t'u to H >at ths vesiels engaged in th= river trade. i'he Government stieg boat Se;z;r is ia the neighb >rho~Mi |uf Poker Bend, abmt fifteen miles ab ive Knight's Lin ling, and is enga^ei' io taking treea Mid sniga from the river chan nel. Ciptain S.iiish is in charge, and is do ini good wo-k. The went end of the lUO at Fremont Bar haa washed out, and Colonel Mernl.-U has beeu requited tv have tha same immediitely repaired, which will throw the water into the uaia cbanoel. The channel I* bitter in tha neighborhood of Six mile Hand thnn it ht%» hoen f;r many years. The water of the Sacramento nbovs tlie mouth of the Feather U s > clear that salrcon i'»n be plainly Been. Captain Smith, r.f the Seir.er, is looking after tho snagj an fist as they are reported. It i -..ill tkt river above tho city •j mill Dot, nt the preseat low stage of waUr, ba navigated wera it not for the good work tuat his been done by th 3 Government snag boat during the past two seasscp. Trie Sac rameuto Woad Compacy hive fourteen <teamera en.aged in transporting grain on the Sicraaieato river, between this city r.nd Me lut'»!i Landing, a point 225 miles by river above Sicramentn. They convey to Port Costa, Vallfji and San Francitco about 100,000 sacks of grain pec week. Metboi'olitan Theater. —The Winter Garden Opera Ccmpany of San Francisco last evening produced at the HttropoßtM Theater the comio opera "Olivette.'' It pre santeci the company, in a wueical tenee, in a far stronger light thau did the spectacle of "Satanella." Miss Annie Ainsworth, as the Countem, produced a very favorable impres- Bion. The l»Hy han a nympithetie soprano voice of good finality, and nines with preci sion and k; o1 taste. Sha wan the recipient i)f a dc.ul !■> encore in the first aci.. Miss Lynton ai. d Miss Aiasworth were also re i- ill J i ia the sic md act, in the duo, " 1 love my love so well." Messuier, the tenor, aUo A^A iped more strength of v..ics and letter |^Kti i than his f inner .-.ppaaranca Lad war rant b;li_-f in. T. J. Djnly, as Cnjuelicot, created much a-mnetnpnt by the vary jjro- Usipie ma-.nrr in which he presented that character, anJ in which he introduced some locil gags. Tt:e working of the calcium lights ia the faraudil; tcer.e was the best "effect" ia tbst line remembered here. " Olivette " will be repea'ol thin evening. "Simona," a new npora, H underscored, anl for mxS week Mrs. F. M. Biteii and the Baldwin Theater dramatic coinpar.y are an counc«d. The pMBSat opera company is i.i.1e.l for a matinee on Saturday.

Hi* letter is dited at Kimherly. S juth Africa, July 18*»h. He s..\ s that being •i old i^nploye in th? locomotive deput inent of ( ia railroad in California, he thon&ht he might gratify some of his old friends by announciag his whereabouts. 11? regrets his inability t describe the Btracge country in which he; :ow neds himself. He accompanies hU letter fvith it number of the papers pub lished in Routh Africa, and which, it iuu-t be confessed f present a ttrange appearance to the American eye, as they are like nothing in the newspsptc line with which this people Is ac quainted. « Mr. Buall says that the country is full of interest, but that which appears to have eeeißed most curious to him is the " trapping " system, by which the illicit traffic ia diamonds is attempted to be prevfcitcd. Io hu opinion it i> a di-arice to EngUtnd that it is pirmittedf Engine drivers in that country receive Tety liberal wares, and he desirea his old eomnjpea on this c «st to know that he has made *s high as thirteen pounds sterling per wctk In ruueieg an engine there ; but from $40 to $50 is tbe usual wtges. But, he aays, wli"i o.e hss had his say about wages, he has said all. He avers that he has bad not oue rquire meal since he left California, not even in Anstrslia, tbroueh which country he p> .-:;■!. Very evidently Mr. Buell's recol lections <f his Fqnare meals in the Golden State are too much for him. Just at the time when he wrote there were two excite ments ia Tr»nsvaal— nuall-pox and cold dis coveries. He records that on the Fourth of July the Transvaal authorities tired a salute of twenty-one guns in honor of the Ametican It°publi3. The Boer<, he Bays, are not cor jejtly understood in these parts. Oae has to t avel among them to find out what they rs»liy are. He pronounces them Boers by name, and boers in fact and by nature. This consideration seems to recall the letter- writer to the subject of eating again, and he therefore immediately remarks tint one can get a far better meal at the Western in this city for a song than one cau get at ths highe3t-torcd Kimbeily hotels for the liveliest sum. What connection this has with our misapprehenbion of the Boerish character, tha reader must himself conclude. There are tevernl Americans in Kimberly, he says, and adds that they are all doing well — at le <st, nearly all of them. A few days be fore ho wrote the plice received a reinforce ment in the shape of a nu -liber of Mississippi Hver sufferers. He hid shown the Record- Umos to a Lumber of tha leading Knglrsh uieu in Kimberly as a representative Amer ican j mrc.il, -.ml in every icscance they had expressed th'.ir opinion most favorably to the American style of paper. Mr. li.i-11 says that the Master Mechanic of cne of the larg est diamond companies in that place, the "Central," was at one time a mechanic in ths railro-.d (hips at Sicrameoto, and his name is Thomas Mercer. Gulf ok Mexico Ctclone.— Sergeant Bar wick, of the Signal Service, cays : The cyclone spoken of yesterc'ay in ths tele graphic news frcm the Chief Signal Officer »b being couth of Cuba and niovirg in a north westerly direction, will probably be heard from at cither Galveston or New Orleans. That class < f storms alwaiis moves to the west ward until reaching tbe latitude of '-'<)' north, after which their courte is more to the northwest, and from latitude 25 J to 30 J their course is nearly or quite due north, from which point they turn almost abruptly t.ri travel in a northeasterly direction. If th°y travd to the northwest far enough to reach Galveston they generally produce a tilal wave, if it is a cyclone of much intens ity : from which point it travels north for a short distance, and thencs northeast acrcss ths Indian Territory, Arkantas, Michigan and Illinois, touching Detroit and Cleveland, and following ths St. Lawrence valley out of North America icto th«i Atlantic ocean ; but it they trend northward at New Orleans then tbe storm's center will be near Natchez, Miss., Nashville, Term., Louisville, Ky., Co lumbus, 0., and out the St. Lawrence river valley to the ocean by the way of Erie, Pa. Of course the cyclone, if of large area, will take in in its (devilrUh-likc ) tentacles Chi cai;.! and ujper L .ke MkUfaß, and L»ke Huron, giving «ev-re and heavy galex on the lakes, with probable loss of property. These particular cycl lies fallow m*teor"loi>ical law* that are uafaling i;i their action toward such storma, or th. .-c that form a parabolic c-rarse in their armaroutly erratic course across a portion of N'jrth America.

A Novel Opchitc and a Notablb One. — At the corner of Sixth an 3K. streets but cveaing, there wis witnessed a ncvel BC3Tie. In front of the stare oj G. Politz wm erected a larga plalf orm, and nn this in full un'if rm was s'ati me.l tbe First Artillery B»n3. From that prominent position it played for two hours &n3 a half the choicest fe'eotions in its reportoire. The band wis there by order of Mr. Politz to enter tiiu tie hundreds upon hune'red* of guents who at t<>n led upon Lis geanl f.ll nad winter o^ju mr, and the delicatiin of tK» enlargeroenl of his splendi 1 establishmtit. The in troduction of iii'i-ic nn such kj occasion was n novel foa'.ure. But Mr. Politi believes with Leland that " ."H all the Arts, creat mnsto is.the art To raise the soul aWe all earthly storms." And that of all the arts it is the art best em ploye! to ad 1 its notes of m'j'o lions sound t > the Cslebrfttim cf success in bosiness. So too, evidently, th^uglit the pwple, for they thronged in a Vist crowd »bout the hand simely-decnrated stnre front, and when their souls were satisfiel wih the ttirring strains and plaintive notes of the m»:*halerf sounds of vibra'iug reed and brar«, tt«y entered the stores in a long end cmstttt procession. Th* while place was lighted np with n-usu»l brilliancy ond elegantly decorated. It w»s seen that Politz. whose businws has steadily and furely increased and broadened during the past eight years, had adJed another store j mim to his laijja establishinant. Tljis gives him a fr r.t» ■•• on X street of 40 feet by a d-pth on Sixth ttreet of *0 f-e\ Ia aali ! tion to his h«a ■• m>4 *xofe<^'n»lv v»ri»'' zz4 aaaorputrd &ssortm-nt of woV, boys' and youths' heavy, tine and drew* coits, and every grade >>f farnUhinz goods fur frentlemen, he showed last ni^ht that with tbe enltxgement of tbe i'rexisas he has added boot*, shoes, hiU, caps and trunks in fall and ample vaiiety, and of tho latest styWe and mo*t approved make.

The Yuba and Sutter county delegates to the Republican State Convention all re turned from Sacramento last evening, look ing worn and weary. They were greatly disgusted at the action of the Convention in regard to the slickens question. The Yuba county delegation was the only one that was heard from on the fioar when the motion was pending to Btrike out the alickens plank from the platform. Not a man of the Sutter delegation said a word. L. F. Moulton waa the only man of the Colusa delegation that had anything to say on the subject. The Yolo dele gation waa silent. Not one of Sacramento county's delegation of twenty spoke a word of protest against the elision of that plank. And yet that delegation embraced some of the ablest men ia the Convention. Several of the Sacramento delegation had fur uiihtd letters to the Sutter county Farmer, taking strong ground against hydraulic mining. The Yuba county delegate* refer to thu-u facts with deep disgust. The published reports of the proceedings of the Convention represented the vote of Yuba county erroneously on the balloting for Supreme Court Justices. The Yuba and the Sutter delegations both voted sol idly for Judge I. S. Balcher. The vote of the Colusa delegation on the motion to strike out the slickens plank from the plat form was also erroneously published. The Colusa delegation voted solidly against striking out that plank. Senator Davis explained to a reporter livst evening why he declined to be put in nomination as a caudidate for Lieutenant Governor. He was, in the first place, unwilling to indorse a platform which contained no anti-debris plank. Another reason was that he ftlt his candidacy might interfere with the nomination of Judge Belcher for Judge of the Supreme Court, as it was unreasonable to expect the Convention to nominate more than one mau from Marysville for a high olfice. Mr. Davis was urged by the Yuba delegation to allow his name to be put in nomination, but he persisted in his re fusal for three reasons. On Friday noon, during recess, he was called to Mr. Kstee! who urged him to take the nomination. Mr. Davis told Mr. Kstee that he could not consistently do so unless an anti-ifebris plank were inserted in the platform. Mr. Estee thought the matter could bo ar ranged, and then and there induced Mr. Morrow to write out a brief resolu tion indorsing the Temple decision. Mr. Divis agreed thit if the resolution should be incorporated into the platform that he would bo a candidate. I'ut when Mr. Jewett tried to get the resolution be fore the Convention after recess it was ruled out on a point of order. Thus it was that Mr. Divis' name did not go be fore the Convention as a candidate for the Lieutenant Governorship.- [Marys\illeAp peal, September 4th.
