THE FUNDED DEBT—HAIGHT GETS PAY FOR TWO OFFICES—AND 18 REMINDED OP THE PACT BY A DISGUSTED DEMOCRAT. Governor Haight has exercised bis pre rogative by appointing Tyler Curtis one of the Commissioners of the Funded Debt, to fill the vacancy occassioned by the.death of Wm. Hooper. The Board is now com posed of the following gentlemen : John Middleton, Wjn. M. Lent. C. L. Low, Dr. C. M.. Hitchcock and Tyler Curtis. At a meeting of the Board, held yesterday, Dr. Hitchcock was elected Secretary. The usefulness of the Board is now past. There is a sufficient an ount of money in the Sinking Fund to pay off all the bonds and indebtedness for which it was establish ed, and there is now on deposit at the Bank of California to the credit of the Commissioners 8450,000 of the public money which is not drawing interest and of which the bank has the use. Mean time the Board continues its existence at a cost to the people of 82,000 per month, including 8200 per month paid an attorney, H H. Haight, fordoing nothing. A difference of opinion between one of the Commissioners, William M. Lent, and Governor Haight, was the cause of a woidy passage-at-arms between these two gentle men last evening, which it was the good (or ill) fortune of our reporter to hear. It took place immediately after the exercises of the Protestant Orphan Asylum at the Pavilion. Governor Haight approached Mr. Lent and said, “So you had an elec tion in the Board to-day. Lent—Yes, and 1 am thoroughly dis gusted at your method of appointing M. Curtis to the vacancy. I have more than half a mind to resign and give you au op portunity to appoint Jim Reynolds in my place. Haight—lf you class Curtis and Rey nolds together, Mr. Lent, you do Mr. Cur tis great injustice. Lent—l do not intend any disrespect to Mr. Curtis, sir; my remarks to you have a purely personal appreciation The Governor turned (o go away, but was detained by Mr. Lent, who continued: “I think you have treated the Board dis courteously in making this appointment, to fill a vacancy, without deigning to consult it. As you have held the office of attor ney for the Board for six or seven years at §2OO a mounth—a perfect sinecure—and have been drawing that amount every month since you have occupied the Gub ernatorial chair, thus holding two offices in violation of law, I think you could have shown more consideration and courtesy.” The Governor- not feeling equal to the task of a reply left Mr. Lent, and the con versation necesarily closed.—[San Fran cisco Chronicle. Dangers of Lagoon Whale Fish INO. — When a whale is “stuck” at sea, there is generally but little difficulty in keeping clear, when it is first irritated by the harpoon. It indeavors to escape by “running,” or descends to the depths below, taking out more or less line, the direction of which, and the movements of the beat, indicate the animal's whereabout. Butin a lagoon, the object of pursuit is in nar row passages, where frequently there is a swift tide, and the turbid water prevents the whaler from seeing far beneath the boat. Should the chase Oe made with the current, the fugitive sometimes stops sud denly, and the speed of the boat, together with the influence of the running water, shoots it upon the worried animal, when it is dashing the water in every direction. The whales that are chased have with them their young cubs, and the mother, in her efforts to avoid the pursuit of herself and offsping, may momentarily lose sight of her little one. Instantly she will stop and sweep around in search, and if the boat comes in contact with her, it is quite sure to be stove. Another danger is, that in darting the lance at the mother the young one, in its gambols, will get in the way of the weapon, and receive the wound, instead of the intended victim. In such instan ces the parent animal, in her frenzy, will chase the boat, and, overtaking them will overturn them with her head, or dash them in pieces with a stroke of her ponderous flukes. The testimony of many whaling-masters furnishes abundant proof that this species of whale is possessed of unusual sagacity; and their strong affection for their young is unquest'onable. Numerous contests with them have proved that, after the loss of their cherished offspring, the enraged animal has given chase to the boats, which only ftund security by fleeing to shoal water or to shore. —From “Coast Whaling,” in the Overland Monthly for February. At Nawhallville, Conn., three hundred girls are employed in making rifle cart ridges. Experiments have proved that sunflowers possess the power of purifying the air. The Btlaeral Land BUI. The new mineral land bill which has passed the United States Senate, that ihe mines of the public domain shall be free to occupation by all persons, subject to le gal regulation and to the local customs. The miners of each mining district may determine the site of the claim, but the lodr claim of any person must not exceed 200 feet, nor of any company 8,000 feet in length ; nor shall the width be more than 800 feet nor be less than 25 feet on each side of the middle of the rein. The title shall cover not only the vein taken as the basis of measurement, but all olhei veins that come to the surface within the limits of the claim. The location ol»-rry claim must be distinctly marked on i; c ground, so that its boundariea can be readv ly traced, and a description of the location with reference to some natural object or permanent monument that .will identify the claim, must be filled in the mining records. Heretofore it has been left discretion tionary with the miners to apply for pat ents or not This bill has a new feature requiring application for patents to be made in a specified lime. The section contain ing this provision reads as follows ; Locators, their heirs or assigns, of all mining locutions heretofore made shall commence proceedings to obtain a patent from the United States within three years trom the passage of this Act, and locators, their heirs or assigns, of locations hereafter made shall commence proceedings within three years of the date of their locations, and upon failure to comply with this sec tion the claim or claims shall be open to re-location. The application for a patent must show that the applicant has complied with the local rules; notice must be published by the Register of the Land Office; a copy of the a notice of intention to apply for a patent, must be posted in the claim; a certificate of the U. S. Surveyor General that work to the aggregate amount of 81,000 has been done on the claim, and that the plat is correct, must be filed with the Register ; and then, if no adverse claim is set up within ninety days a patent will be issued, unless it be shown that the ap plicant has tailed to comply with the re quirements of the Act. An adverse claimant must commence suit within ten days or his claim will be disregarded. The lines of the claims shall be described with reference to the lines of the public surveys, but need not conform with them. Sections 1,2, 3,4, and 6, of the Act of July 20, 1866, providing for the sale of of lode mines, are repealed. While the proposed law provides for the disposition of quartz and gravel mines, it provides thatall applications made or pend ing before the passage of the new law, may be prosecuted and secured under the old laws. Under this provision miners who desire to make application immediate ly will not be required to go to additional expense should the new bill become a law. Surveyor General llardenbukgh. —There appears to be considerable com plaint in the California papers, gowing out of this gentleman’s appointment. The Press of California are evidently not posted on the matter at all. By the Bill that has passed the Senate and will probably pass the House of Representatives this ses sion, the final survey and settlement of iand boundaries is determined hereafter by the U. S. Courts. The Surveyor Gsn eral is simply supervising or overseeing the mechanical part of the work. Mr. Hardenburgh is not a practical surveyor like Mr. Day, but he is an educated gentle man of clear, quick perception, and could pass on the correctness of labor perform ed under order of the Court as well as his preqecessor. Complaint is not made against Mr. Day’s competency or honesty, but rather his indecision and hesitancy. Some patties even go so far as to iftpl ore him to decide against them that they might get their surveys out of his bands through the medium of an appeal to the Land Office, so it has been represented here. —Washington correspondent of the Vallejo Chronicle. Governor Haight is put forward as a violent enemy of monopolies. Sacramento has long been groaning under an oppres sive gas monopoly. The last Legislature passed a bill to break up this monopoly by allowing another gas company to come into competition with the old company, under a guarantee to supply gas about 83 per thousand cheaper than it is now furnished by the monopoly. The Governor was so much in favor of the gas monopoly which now exists here that he promptly vetoed the bill.—[Reporter. That is so. The people of Sacramento asked for such a bill—the Legislature pas aed it and we think that the Governor pocketed it at the end of the Session, fear ing that if he had vetoed it the Legislature might passed it over his head !—Bee.

Cutting off the Wrong Head.—An old farmer of Summer was out one fine day looking over bis broad acres, with an ax on his shoulder and a small dog at his heels. They espied a woodchuck. The dog gave chase and drove him into a stone wall, where action immediately commenced.— The dog would draw the woodchuck part ly out from the wall and the woodchuck would take the dog back. The old gentle man’s sympathy getting high on the side of the dog thought he must help him. So patting himself in position above the dog, waited for the extraction of the woodchuck, when he would cut him down. Soon the opportunity offered and the old man struck, but the woodchuck gathered up at the same time and took the dog far enough to receive the blow, and killed it on the spot. For years after, the old gentleman in re- 1 lating the story would add: “And the dog don’t know to this day but what the wood chuck killed him.” “The Carson Dollar.” — Upon our return from Sacramento last Spring, in passing through Carson, we procured a few of the new dollars fresh from the Mint, and about the first issued from the new Mint. They were bright and handsome, and a possessor of one wonld be loth to part with it. So we thought, and there fore concluded to give them aw«y*as “nest eggs.” We gave them to several children with the injunction that it was always to be kept as a nest egg; and that when five dollars had accumulated the five must be deposited in a savings bank. The result is that the Sacramento Savings Bank has a number of depositors, residents of Alpine county, whose ages range from eight to fourteen years. At the fate of one per cent, per month, the present rate, SIOO would amount to S4OO in about a doeea years —a nice snm for a child to drew OB upon becoming of age. Who will give a “Carson Dollar” for a “nest egg ?”—[Al pine Chronicle. It is announced that the first section of the Northern Pacific Railroad, 240 miles west from Duluth, is already graded, end that the rails are being laid down at the rate of a mile a day. This part of the road will be in operation the coming Sum mer, and can hardly fail to make Duluth a lively place. The eompauy here till the 4th of July, 1877 to complete the Hue from Lake Superior to Paget Soaud, hat the probability ia that it wail be fiwehed two years sooner.
