I'allfornlu'a Protracted Dry Season. The San Francisco Bulletin of November 22 savs: "There la anxiety for rain. As perhaps more than half tbe wheat seed for the season was iu the ground before the light rains of the first of this month fell, the farmers are apprehensive lest a failure of mois ture should blight the sprouts and necessitate a new sowing. Apart from this, a 'wet winter' will be worth manv millions more to the State than such a season as the last, when we had hardly au average rain fall. "Taking the observations at San Francisco for twenty years as a guide, we find that the heaviest rainy seasons have been preceded by apparently light rains la November. The repeated Hoods of 1 tie season of lKCl-OU were preceded by only 8-78 inches of rain during November, aud in portions of the state we have already had about three inches for November, 1870. In the season of 1S5J-6U, when less than an average fell,, the November rain-fail was 6 43 inches, in the season of lsfi4-65, when abont tbe average was reached, as muca as 763 inches, or more than ouc-thlrd, fell in November. The wettest winter since tbat of 1SG1-C2 was that of 18CM7, im which 82Ki Inches of rata fell, and only i C4 Inches in November. "'t hus it appears that the amount of rain which falls in November does not indicate the character of the whole season. December Is the month of gratest rain. Iu the flood years, ls.2-3, as much as 11 -Wt inches fill in that month, la 1S61-2 the Decem ber fall was tt'l Inches; in 186.V6 it was 1315 inches, or very nearly half of all the rain which fell in one of the most prosperous seasons our farmers ever knew. "These statistics confirm what the native Call fornians and mission settlers teld the immigrants of 1849, that we could not tell before December, and sometimes not till Christmas, if the winter would be a wet one that is, one of more than averages mois ture. Thns there is no reason why we should not anticipate a wet winter this season : on the contrary, the rule tbat two dry. or comparatively dry, winters are s pi to be followed by a wet oneisinour favor; and the fact that heavy fall rains occurred in Mexico is another fact in our favor, according to the obaer vaiioiiB of many years." THE AFRICAN DIAMOND FIELDS. Amerlraa Emlarraau lr the Ilappv Land. The Boston TraaelUt ef November 8U says: The diamond fields of South Africa, which were first discovered in 1SGS, and which havs already attracted several thousand adventurers from Kugland, are beginning to excite some attention la this country, and the bark George T. Kemp, one of the African trading vessels of Messra Isaac Taylor k. Ce., of this city, will sail from Boston aiMiut the 1Mb of Decem ber with the first party of Yankees for that new Held ef exploration. Abont thirty perncci have already engaged pas sage, and others will probably be added to tke list before the vessel sails. They are mostly miners who have had experience la California and Austra lia and are familiar with the prlratlous and excite ment of a miner's life One of them, past the mid dle age of life, has followed the occupation of a miner for tweaty years, in different paris of the world, and is still iu search of the golden riches. The vessel goes directly to Port Eliiabeth, Cape Good Hope, where tke explorers have a journey of four iiandred aud twenty-eight miles by land to reach the diamond fields. The roads are good, the wayside inns frequent, and taere is plenty of waier and grass for tau.e. ADMIRAL TOKTER. Aa Explnnntorv lMter A Denial ( aav Intm. E.H0B l Keller Upon I lie Prenldeat In a J"or vrr Indlaereel t mma1catln. Wasiiinotok, Dec. 5. Admiral Porter has add reused tbe following letter to the President: WASniKGTON, Dec. 5, 1870. Mr. President: My first impulse on reading tbe article pub- lishcd in tbe New York World was to go to you at once and pronounce It a fabrication, for as such 1 considered It: but as It purported to have been written six years ago, and published by a person who once held a prominent place under tbe Government, I determined to ascertain fully if I ever indited such a letter, before addressing you on the subject. Neither myself nor my secretary, who has served with me eight years, could recoil to our recollection any circum stance ot the kind. I could not conceive that I had uttered senti ments 1 know I never felt, and which are so at variance with those that I have uniformly ex pressed towards you. The letter, it appears, was a private one; and vindictive must have been the heart of tbe roan that could be guilty of so gross a breach of confidence, and depraved in deed tun ft have been the character who, to gratify his mischievous Instincts, could make public a confidential letter written, perhaps, under great excitement, and at this distant day not even remembered. It seems like a poor re turn for your uniform confidence and kindness to me, and I am too glad hat I remember no thing connected with the letter. At about tbe date of the letter I had passed through a long and fatiguing contest with Fort Fisher, and my numerous ileet was almost over powered with the elements. I saw the coveted prize within my grasp and then slip from me for another month. I 'had to battle with the storms of winter anchored on an open coast, with the responsibility of that large fleet on my bands,my mind and body harassed by extraordi nary fatigue. The whole nation was looking on excited, dreading a defeat that might pro long a contest that was already sapping its vitals. You and others know what I had to undergo bodily and mentally. I presume it was while under this excitement that I wrote the letter which you say has made you lose your faith in human nature. I have no recollection of it any more than I would have of the passing circum stances of fix years ago. When several persons have, at different timer, informed me that a letter would be published In which I had abused General Grant, 1 treated the matter with indif ference, thinking it impossible that eucha let ter could exist. I do not write for the purpose of exonerating myself, for I would rather be the writer of tbat letter than its publisher. The peace of political parties and of society would be placed in great jeopardy if all the private letters written within the last six years were published. Nothing that I have said will affect your fair fame, and your many friends would be sadly wanting in judgment if they were at all influenced by a silly exultation of a few unscrupulous persons, who are, after all, only rejoicing over the most contemptible breach of confidence I ever heard of. I regret exceedingly the loss of your friend ship, and do not hesitate to disapprove the sentiments of which, I suppose, 1 must bear the odium. They appear in a letter of which I have no recollection; they are 60 different from the sentiments I always expressed towards ycurself and the gallant olticers of tbe army, and so In consistent with all my antecedents, that I scarcely consider them entitled to a moment's thought. I have the honor to. remain, very respectfully, your obedier t servant. uAvm v. roiiTEK, Aamirai. BOURBAKl ASI TUB REPUBLIC. General Bourbakl, according to the rail Mall Ga zette, did not, when he left Chtaeihurst, go to Tours spontaneously. lie went first to Brussels, proposing to return to Met., but on crossing the French frontier he received an order from M. Oarobctta to report himself at Tours. lie obeyed without hesitation. On lils arrival there he was asked authoritatively how he came to leave Metz, and what he went to do in England. The General answered him that Marshal Bazuine told him that a person named Hegnler had come to Met, with a niessHtre from the Empress Eugenie, who de sired to see General liourhaki, and that the Marshal wished him to go. Bourbakl objected strongly to leave Ids command, and deraanned a written order. That order was given, and thereupon Bourbakl pasted through the l'russiau lines In the Geneva uniform of nn ambulance surgeon. There was little occasion for the disguise, since it Is obvious that bourbakl, whether he knew it or not, was a tool in the hunda of an agent jointly employed bv the Bonaparttots and the l'niasiaus. VVrien he arrived at Chiselhurt, the Empress, Bourbakl said, seemed surprised to see him, and denied that she had seat for him. lie gave to M. Gambetta no further account of the conversa tion that passed, which he doubt'es considered confidential. If, however, M. Regnler's story be true, the Empress could not have been surprised at set lng the General, because If she did not person ally give the strange busybody hlB commission, she was aware of it, did not oppose It, and only objected that the enterprise was dliflcult and dangerous. M. Gambetta at-ked bim what he thought or Ba.alne. The answer was at first conveyed by "mating a face" expressive of disgust. "Bazatne," he said, "thinks of himself alone." Gambetta then asked Bourbakl whether, if he offered him a command, he would accept it, and give hts word of honor as a soldier t hat be would serve the republic. He said be would, and Gambetta resolved to trust him. MARINE TELEGRAPH. for additional Marine Neu u First Paga. ALMANAC FOR PHILADELPHIA THIS DAY.
