Williams' new j'acht was launched about 11 :30 a. m. on Sat urday. It dipped into the wntcr like a bird, and looks splendid in the wator. It certainly seems as if it would take a good deal to outsail it. It was named the "Kahihilani" (vine of Heaven translation), aud is about Hi tons burthen. The W. G. Irwin, dipt.

The British steamer Silvcrtown, which at tho beginning of the year left London under contract to lay a submarine cable between Salinas Cruz and Payta, by which nn un broken connection between Galves ton and Valparaiso and all inter mediate ports on the Pacific Coast of Central and South America was established, is now in San Francisco harbor. She is the first cable-ship that has ever visited the port of San Francisco. She was built in 1873, remodeled in 1880, and fitted out with the latest appliances. The most noticeable feature about the vessel is her great breadth of beam compared to her length. The di mensions arc: Length, 340 feet; breadth, 50 feet; and depth, 30 ft. This great breadth takes away fiom her speed, but ensures the great steadiness necessary for laying a cable. Her registered tonnage is 3720 tons, and her gross tonnage is 1035 tons, but she can carry 8000 tons of ficight with safety. Tho driving engines arc compound of 100 horse power nominal. When in first class trim she can steam 0 knots an hour, but when her bottom is foul, as It is now, can mako but 5 undor the most favorable con ditions. She will return to London by the Straits of Magellan, taking a cargo of wheat. It is safe to assume she will take 7000 tons of wheal, in addition to 1200 tons of coal and 000 tons of water ballast. She has four decks and a hurricane deck Sho was built complete In 91 days. Condensed from thoS. F. Chronicle Oct. l'Jth. LONDON GOSSIP. (11V WjANKUH.) Hpcclnl Tor tho Dnlly Hullctln.) Tlioro is a report current in scientific circles that Mr. Lcid! Smith, Sir George Nines, Clements Mnrkhaiu and Sir . AlUm' Young intend to approach tho Government, in tho course of a fow months' with a view to the sciifling but of another Aictio Fxpeditio'u on u great flp.' i Mr. Clenionts Mnrkhnm will pro bably rcccivo a Knighthood, perhaps even a baronetcy, for his recent services in the way of reorganising Arctic exploration. Such an honour would bo richly deserved. A word of advice to thoso nbotit to start for China, Japan or those countries where cholera is said to be prevalent. In case they should en counter the demon, lot mo call their attention to a simple prescription written by a physician who had great experience during the epidemic of '32 and '-18. As death is often in the pot, so is tho remedy in the cruet-stand. The medicine is made up as follows: Mustard, one table spoonful; salt, one ditto; wator, half pint. Mix. Dose: one table spoonful every half hour. I do not say that better remedies arc not to be found in the mcdicinc-chcst, but when stricken down by cholera (and it always comes suddenly), unless prompt measures are taken there is no more hope for the patient tliau if he had ono of Arabi's iron pills in his stomach. The doctor is' not always at had ; my remedy is nearly always so, and, as the advertise ments bay, " ask for no other and see that you get it." Here is a matter for your military men to think over. Tho senrcity of candidates for cavalry commissions here is causing serious alarm nt Ilcad-quarlcrs. That steps of somo kind will be taken for obtaining a proper How of candidates for com missions in the cavalry there can be no doubt. There arc plenty of can didates for infantry commissions, but not for the cavalry. Why? Because the expenses in a cavalry regiment arc so great as to shut out that branch of tho service to all but men with a large private income. Of the candidates for infantry coin missions, there are many who would select serving in the cavalry, if .tho expenses were not so extravagant. Competitive examinations and exam inations for promotion may be re moved altogether, yet it is doubtful whether any perceptible increase of candidates for cavalry commissions would result. Of late years young men of property havo taken to trade, while parents see that the social position conferred in these days by military rank is no equivalent for the heavy outlay of a cavalry com mission. The deficiency of candi dates for the cavalry arises in a great measure from a social cause. There is little doubt that if expenses in the field aitillcry were increased there would be just as many vacan cies in that branch of the mounted service. ' , ' . Here is a good idea for your city, that entertains so many strangers. Vcvcy, a charming town on the Lake of Geneva in Switzerland, has hitherto being neglected by tourists. A strong effort is being made to at tract them and the leading feature is the formation of a society, com prising all the chief inhabitants, for the embellishment of tho town and its environs. They impress upon the tradesmen, the necessity for mo deration in prices aud civility to strangers. I hope they will succeed in their wcll-concclvcd efforts. A good story comes from Geneva, concerning a lady and gentleman who recently arrived there nnd found all the hotels so full that they ultimately were accommodated with a bathroom turned into n bed-chamber. During the night, the husband wishing to call for a light, pulled a cord attached to the wall, under tho impression that he had gob hold of the bell-rope. Tho immediatorcs ponso was a deluge of cold -water. Monsieur nnd Madame yelled for help, bringing out a crowd of guests nud waiters in all sorts of light and alrv coitumes. Tableau. "Animal intelligence" is tho title tif' tho forty-first volume of the In ternational Scientific series, author, George J. Boinanes. 1; The .R.S., is to bo congratulated upon a work which is likely to bccoiuo cxtrpmely popular. The anecdotes' of animals are 'charming, mid the chapters de voted to ants worthy of a Lubbock. The lowest forms,, of lifo Imvc becu included. Even tho microscopic rotifer, according to Mr. Romanes, seems to bo endowed with intelli gence. Let any unprejudiced "per son carefully read it, and he, must, arrive at ono conclusion, viz., that our boasted Intelligence nnd reason nrc only the results of higher forms of brain development many .of our feeling rind passions aro shared by the lower animals. That man was a Bpccial creation very fow who have studied biology will now admit. Tho proofs of his lowly origin aro all convincing to the student - of nature. The author acknowledges his indebtedness to the great Darwin for several interesting facts relating to animals. A judge the other day, passing scntoncc on a criminal, concluded with the usual words, "And may tho Lord have mercy on your soul." "I am much obliged to you," said tho prisoner, "but I never heard of anyone thriving after your prayers." OO, BERQEB, KAA1IUHANU 8TIIUUT, General Agent for Tho N. Y.
