Racing at Jerome Park?Fifth Day of the Autumn Meet ng. A Fair Attendance and a Fins Day's Sport. Five very exciting races. Big Sandy, Dauntless, Mate, Joe ferns and Trouble the Winners. The attendance at Jerome Park yesterday afternoon was not as large as or, some < f tho previous days of ihe meeting, the weather being chilly and the winds bleak and cold; hut th ritcing was as good as could have boon desired. There was plenty of it, and the contests were all close and exciting. Five events were on the sard, and, there bei g a dead beat for ono of them, the ?pectators had really si* good races to amuse them during the afternoon. The first event was a dash of a mile by three year olds, the second a dash of three guartcrs of a mile by iwo-year-olds, tho third a dash of Iwo miles, the fourth a sweepstakes for all ages, for horses that had never won a race, a dash of one mile- ! the fifth a steeplechase ol ubout two miles and a half' Ihe day's sport tlo nig with the run ofTof a dead heat which was-made in tue first race. The first event was lor a purse of $500 for three year- 1 .lis; fillies to carry 105 lbs.; beaten maidens allowed I lbs.; winners durrn the year of $500 to carry a Ib? ? Of $1,000, 7 lbs.; 01 2,000, 10 lbs extra; the distance one 0 aud " 1uarler There were four entries for the race. These were W U. Chamberlin's gray flllv Lizzie R-, by Aster, dam Kairy, 3 years old, carrvlng 100 lbs ? Ooswell & Cam mack's bay filly Invoice, by Lexington' ilam Volga, 3 years old, loo lbs ; D. D. Withers' bay fillv Revolt, by Lexington, dam cue Washington, 3 years old 100 lbs.; D. McDan el A Co. s chestnut colt Big Sandy, by Australian, darn Genevrn, 3 years old, 105 lbs. Lizzie R- was the favorite at the commencement of the pool selling, but Big Sandy soon took her place and had the cull at nearly eveu money over ail tho others. In voice and Revolt were sold for about equal imounts, many people believing that they had good chances for winning the race. Big Sandy aud Lizzie R. made a dead heat, ooatiug Invoice only a neck, and it was generally believed that, had the latter mado h.-r run a little sooner, tho race would have been settled then and thcro. The dead heat was run off al ter all the ether races on the card had been run and Big Sandy proved the victor. Big Sandy is a strapping big colt very coarse in appear ance, of large bone and muscle' but he has a fine turn of speed and runs very ensile' keeping close to the ground, and is what is known In England as a '-daisy.cropper." He was purchased by Lionel McDaniel dur.ng the post summer, when he was very lame, and when there were fears that be sever would bo well; but tho Colonel has brought him ibout all right, and he w-,11 make a useful horse. The second race was for a purse of $500, for two-year ?lds; beaten maidens allowed 5 lbs. ; winners of $500 to sarry 3 lbs.: of $1,000, 7 lbs. ; of $2,000, 12 lbs. extra ?he distance, three-quarter* of a mile. This race liko Ihe previous one, had four starters, comprising P Lorillard's bay gelding Cyr,;, by Planet, dam Fairy -irrying 92 lbs.; Augu.-l Belmont's hay fill., Dauntless' tj Macaroni, dam Artie.*. 92 lbs.; J0. Donahue's bav Illy Mollio Carew, by V. Tag .nselt, dam Chignon 02 ha., and f.eorgu L. Lor, u -i s brown colt Ao.bu,h by Australian, dam Dolly ? ,u. Cyril w. s a great favor te over the others, in of the pools selling fur nearly even with ail tho others combined. The young iters had a very bad start, the ravorilo being the last ? get away, and he never had a chance to reach the others at any part of the race It is very doubtful, however, whether there would lave been a different result of the race, even had he >een on even terras with Dauntless at the start. Daunt ess ran a capital race and mado a ridiculous oxamplo >f her followers at the finish. She is a line, large well formed filly, excellently bred, being by Maccaroni,'dam Artless. She ran with Mr. Belmont's Patience in a mile dash at the beginning of the present meeting, and tecured a place, Patienco being tirst, Mr. G. L Lord ard's Sunburst second. Dauntless third. The latter has ill the requisites far the making of a great racehor*c laving both size and capita! propelling apparatus. Tho third race was for a purse of $.';oo, for all ages ihe distance, two miles. The starters wore again four n number, compns.ng K. W. Sears' chestnut colt Ac -obat, by Lexington, dam Sally Lewis, 4 years old 108 lbs.; John O Donnell's chestnut colt Milner by Leamington, dam by Lex.ngton, 3 years >ld, #5 lbs.; W. CottriU's bay colt Colonel Neiug&n, by Harry of tho West, dam Kmoline 1 years old, 108 lbs. ; M. H. Sanford's bay horse Mate,' ?y Australian, dam Mattie Gross, 6 years old, 118 lbs. Acrobat was a great favorite, Mate second choice and Milner third in favor with the speculators. Mate won the race vcrv easily in very moderate time; bat the track was heavy, and with the steady weight of 118 lbs. on his back the race must be considered a good one. It was quite apparent when Mate galloped home that be had h id a very easy contest, as be was quite fre?h, and could havo run a much faster and further race. Acrobat's defeat, although it surprised the masses who had made him a great favorite, did not tstomsh the horse's trainer, Mr Lloyd, for that gentle man told our reporter before the start that Acrobat had been atQicted with the prevailing epidemic, and that he was yet coughing; but be did not know whether the horse was tit for a race or not, and they entered him in this race as an experiment to ascertain whether ho was well enough to run in the four mile dash which was to take place on Thursday. A robot soon showed that he had not recovered his old form, for he was beaten at a moderate pace before he had run a mile and a balC Miiner having run him down at that distance. The latter, however, was in turn beaten at a mile and three-quarters, and came home quite pumped out. Mate has added to bis many laureis another wreath, and his many admirers have no fours but what he will be able to add more next summer, even on Kngl -h soil, should his owner, Mr. Stanford, conclude to run him there. The fourth race was a sweepstakes, for maidens of all ages, $30 each, ball forfeit, with $400 added; the second horse to aave bis stake; li four years old allowed If lbs. ; If five or more, 7 Ilia, j the distance ono mile. There were six entries lor this event These were Doswell k Cam mack'? chestnut colt New Ifork, by Planet, dam Hester, carrying 06 lbs., and the same gentleman's bay Oily Kvelyn Carter, by Australian, dum Miss Carter, irl lbs.; D. McDar.iol A Co.'s chestnut colt Joe Cures, by Australian, dam bctty Ward, 06 lbs.; Jo Donahue's gray fl'ly Cray I.ag, by Bay wood, dam Lag, 92 lbs., and U. u. Withers Imported bay fill} Tattoo, by (iladiateur, dam Bultsgiia. 0It lbs. Joe Cerns was the favorite over the (fold. He won a very easy race, Tattoo being second and Kvelyn Carter third. The c o ng event oi the day was a handicap steeple chase for a purse oi f "00, of which $200 went to the second horse; the entrance Iree; three or more horses, the property of different owners, to start or no race; the distance a'out i wo miles and a half. fCight burses cam# to t e post.

The first day of the full trotting meeting at Point j Breeze Park passed off satisfactorily.

Of the two events on the programme, the favorites were badly beaten, the winners turning up in J. Atkinson's bay mare Flora Windsor, in the 2:38 class, and Daniel Mace's bay gelding Sensation, in the 2:20 class.

Bay Jack went away w.tn tho lead and kept It to the half nnle pole, when Flora shot by him as if bo was standing still, and coming on well in hand she won the beat by four lengths, Bay Jack and tho others as per summary. The pools now averaged Flora Windsor $50, field $17. The start was very straggling, the lavorite being in the rear and hobbling when the word was given. Buy Juck wont to tho front on the turn and until the three quarter polo was reached had it all his own way. Then Flora, who was now trotting steadily, took Issue with him and forced him off his feet near the distance stand, but Bay Jack managed to cross the wire on a Jump ono length in ad vance in 2 SO'i. Before the third heat Bay Jack wa3 the lavorite over the field at $40 to $30, but while they were scoring Flora was made first choice, selling for $?>, while the field brought $50. T. B. French showed the way to the hall-mile polo, when Bay Jack and Flora mado a gallant struggle for the lead Flora at the finish of the tussle showing half a length' in auvance at the half-mile pole. From this pent home there was a grand fight for the supremacy between French, Flora and Alley, which ended with French snooting under the wire the winner of the heat by a head. Flora second, one length in advunce of Bay Jack tho others as in summary.

Yesterday afternoon a well dressed young man entered the store of Mr. A. Brown, No. 01 Montgomery street, jersey City, and asked to see some fancy wall paper. While the attendant was engaged with him two men, who proved to be "pals" ot the fir-t mentioned indi vidual, stepped iqto the store and aakifl what was the price of a bedstead and a mattress near tbs door. The attendant turned t<> accommodate them, but the first customer wits impatient, and, in order to suit lnrn, it was necessary to go to the rear of Hie store to show soma goods. The tifo who asked for tne bedstead seized the opportunity and the con tents of the money drawer, riieywerc by tho attendant, who rushed utter them as far as the door, but they escaped. The other man. who is supposed to bathe chief conspirator, was collared; hut he would have succeeded in ? vorpowering the attendant if it were not tor the arrival of officers Baton and Doyle, who took him into custody. He gave his t ime as Edward Jack son, and said Jut resided in Newark. CAPTURING A BURGLAR. On Monday evening, about seven o'clock, as Officer Ki ln, of tho Twenty seventh precinct, was patrolling his post in (JMflogo place he observed the crouching form o. a man inside tho door of Francis Hart k Co.'s stationery and printing establishment, at N'os. 12 and 14 of that street. Huspcctlng a burglar to bo tliero the officer approached the entrance, when the door was slammed to and braced so that be could not get In. Rapping lor assistance, two officers responded, land I'oltecinun Klein effected an entrance to ih" cellar ot tho premise* through ? man trap in tho sidewalk. Alter exploring around for a short time hi found a man named John O'Hara hid behind a bale of pr, xta and arrested him. A lot ot pocket hooks and oilier ifoods were found packed up nnd ready to !>e taken nway, and the till ban been rifled of $25, which the burglar subsequently admitted having thrown into the street. O'Hara was hold in $2,UU0 bail to answer I Lit Justice Buff*. THE OCEAN YACHT RACE. THE 8TABT FBOM THE LIGHTSHIP TESTEBDAT AFTEBNOON. The threo racing yachts?Resolute, Dreadnought and Vesta?are now buoyantly crossing the billows of the deep between the Sandy Hook and Cape May llgut.-hips as they gallantly contest the palm for speed. There Is every indication that their race will be comparatively short, sharp and decisive, unless some uuforsoen accident shall happen to one or more of them. At an early hour yesterday morning the Narrows, off Stapleton, S. I., where the three yachts, in company with other vessels of this class, were anchored, began to give evidence of the approach of some great nautical event. The water began to be flurried by the prows and oars of numerous small boats, and from the racing craft themselves came tiie sometimes cheery and somi times creaking sounds of active preparations. On their decks the sailors were working steadily and with enthusiasm; for their hearts were as full of desire to win the approaching contost as were those of their employers nnd friends. Especially en thusiastic was tho crew cf the Dreadnaught. It was made up ol sailors from the yachts Comet and Estelle, skilful mariners, who worked aud won in several well sailed matches. On board the Dreadnaught were Mr. William H. I.anglev, the owner of tho Comet, and Captain Joe Ellsworth, who was to ass<t in sailing her. In Hie afternoon ii was decidod thai the racing vessels should sail down to the Lightship from Stuteu Island Instead of being towed, as was at first proposed. Accordingly their sails were set and the yachts s'arted. Tho Dreadnaught left her anchorage tlrst and the \ esta second. Both went gracefully down, "wing and wing." and as they were passing'Fort Hamilton the Resolute started alter them. She had on board an experienced Cape Mny sailing m.us-t>r aud a harbor pilot to assist in sailing tier. As the racers wero going down the lower hay the Mohawk, Mr. Garner's yacht, in tow of a tugboat, started fur the lightship. They went easily down to that point, and from there, alter short preparation, a flying start was made. The Yosta was the |ir?t to gei awiiy. and she passed the lightship at 4h. 4m. I'. M Tho Dreadnaught followed at 4h. 5m. and tho Resolute at 4h. flm. As they passed the lightship ull the yachts were under full sail, having top stay-sails set. They went along the beach, keeping well together and, us far as thoy could be seen, there was no difference made in their relative situations. The Mohawk bent her sails on her way to the lightships, aud passed that craft at Sh. 10m, She followed the racers, intending to try her abilities against theirs. She has, within the last threo days, beru somewhat altered by the addition of a 15-iuch keel. THE PARIS DUEL. HOSTILE MEETING OF TWO YOUNG AMERICANS? AN EXPLANATION OF THE CAUSES LEADING TO THE FIGHT. The duel between Frnnk Riggs and Willie Paine, two New York young men, fought near Paris on Sunday, was the outgrowth of a feud between the fathers of the young men, spiced, it is said, by an amour of their own. For many years Elisha Riggs and William H. Paine, of this city, were intimate personal friends, but their amity was broken about two years ago by a law. suit growing out of business transactions Involving $15,000. Some months after the legal points of this disagreement had been settled by the courts the gen tlemen went Into the Washington Club in Paris, of which .Mr, Riggs was President. One evening l'aine en tered the dub rooms and was nbout to sit down to the card table, when Uiggs arose, saying ho could not sit at the same table with him until ho had paid previous losses. Mr. Paine says that ho drew hwportmonnule from his pocket and paid Riggs on the spot. There the mat ter onded for the night. On the next evening the gentlemen met in one of the anterooms of the club, when Mr. l'aine said:?"Mr. Riggs, 1 have wailed twenty-four hours for you to apologize for vnur nin duct of lasj nijjht." Mr. Riggs drew himself up with much dignity and answered, "I have no apology to make, sir." "Then, sir," said Paine, "vou must take t!iul!"and ho slapp'd his face. Further belligerency was prevented by the interference of the bystanders. At the next meeting of the club Mr. Paine was expelled from membership for having struck a lellow member within the precincts of the club. The principals of the quarrel dropped the m.itter at thiB point, but their sons, each about twenty-one years of age, took it up und arranged for a meeting with pis tols, near Maubcrg, on tlie Belgian frontier. On the appointed day both parties wero on the field with the seconds, but just as they were about to take their places thoy were arrested by the Belgian authori ties and sent back to Paris. Immediately alter the duel youug Paine telegraphed to his father, who is now in New York, as follows:?"Sequel to last year's alfair. Meeting at Bois to-day. Arm very slightly'scratched." CUBA AND SPAIN. WHAT CAPTAIN GENERAL VALMESADA HAS TO SAY?THE COMING BURNING OF PLANTATIONS IN CUBA. A reliable informant, who arrived in this city only four days since (rotu Havana, who while there cn Joyod a free access to the society of Count Valrnaseda, relates that the General one day, upon being ques tioned as to the prospect for tho wintor campaign, answered very candidly that be had demanded speedy and heavy reinforcements from Spain, amounting to at least 18,000 men, and that unless these were on hand simultaneously before the beginning of the sugar sea son he despaired ol being able to check tho destruction of all the sugar estates and tho advauco of the rebels westward toward Havana Seflor Josd Ferrer da Couto, the editor of the Spanish journal of this city, has gone to Madrid to Join tho slave party in agitating tho Cuban question a little more actively than heretofore, under tlio belief that. President Grunt will recommend to Congress the granting at last of belligerent rights to tho Cubans. GUATEMALA. A SOUTH AMERICAN GENERAL S VIEWS ON HIS NATIVE LAND. General of Division Don Josd Lopez Uraga, who has roceutly arrived from the Republic of Guatemala, is at present quartered in the Westminster Hotel. The Gen eral has been Uctively engaged for a considerable time back In assisting to organizo the Guatomalian army ac cording to the best features of the Prussinn system, which Is based on compulsory military ser vice. In connection with his labors In Guate mala be has published a book illustrative i of this system, which Is now being generally adopted in I the Spanish-American Republics, and In addition to \ this a new compilation of administrative and tactical regulations is at present in General Uraga's bands, and will soon bn published lor the hcnelit of the Guate malan as well as other Spanish-American armies. To tiie accomplishment of these onerous tasks General Uraga. formerly In command of the Mexican army and ut one time commander of Maximilian's imperial house hold, brings the mature experience of over lorty years' active sorvice. lie is now en route to Europe on mat ters connected with military ul airs. When General Uraga loll the city of Guatemala, in August last, everything was quiet The country, un der the liberal rule of President Ruflno Hamas, was in a prosperous condition; the cotrce crops looked woll and money was plentiful. The national railroad, which li in course of coustruction between the capital and Nanto To mas, on the Atlantic coqM, It is expected will be finished by the end ol tho present year, or early next spring. When tbis enter) u Is completed I he capital of Guatemala will then be within sixteen days' travel I of New York. The construction of tho road Is carrted on simultaneously at both ends, and on the side next Guatemala there are over 1,1)00 workmen employed. Tho Spanish war vessel Vance do Gaunt was then at : tho port ol Si.nto Toman in August. She hud on board the Hlspano Irish General Butler, who was sent as a commissioner Irom Captain General Valrnaseda l<> de mand irorn Guatemala retiaction of a decree published some throe months ago conceding belligerent rights to the Cuban patriots. It-appears that General Butler is authorized to demand an iinquaiilled retraction of the decree. General Uraga gives it as his very decided opinion that Guatemala will never allow Spain to come in and say what laws an American Republic may or may not enact. Tho decree complained of by Valrna seda v ill never be abrogated by Guatemala CUSTOM HOUSE NOTES. The contract for the supply of telegraphic slup news to the Custom House and the Barge oiSce was renewed yesterday with the Western Union Tclegraplrtionipany. Formerly telegraphic despatches woro sent announcing the arrival ol steamers at Bandy Hook, but this method has bceu abolished tn favor of "repeaters," which nowa days, in clear weather, announce the steamers irom tho otllng from Bandy Book. The amount paid lor this service is said to tie $1,500 a year. Deputy Surveyor Colonel Burton expressed himself yesterday as much pleated with the smooth working of tho new Treasury regulations respecting saloon passen gers' baggage. He s.iid that all tnu European steamers which leu this port tor tiome since tue 1st ol last .Sep tember have been provided with the passengers' decla ration forms, and when 'lie steamships arr.c hero tho passengers nave tho blanks all tilled up, so that but little time li lost tn getting to work.

GRAND REVIEW OF THE SECOND DIVISION NA TIONAL GCABD BE GOVERNOR TILDEN AT PROSPECT PARE. The streets of the City of Churches were enlivened yesterday by the movements of citizen soldiery, the beating of drums and the strains of martial music. Tho occasion of the display was the annual Inspection and review of the Second Division National Guard, State of New York, by the Commander-in-Chief, Governor Tilden. The clouds which prevailed during the greator part of the day, tho high winde sweeping dust in eddies upon every side, was not a favorable condition, and it was thought probable that the prospect of rain would havo the effect of intimidating many from attending tho review. The rosult, however, proved the error of the prognostication on tho weather. Tho vari ous commands ol tho Second division assembled at their respective armories between twelve M. and one o'clock P. M., and by half-past two the Filth and Eleventh brigades were on the Prospect Park parade ground. Shortly before noon Colonel John II. Bergen, Judge Advocate General of the Second division staff, who was specially assigned by M^jor General Thoa. S. Dukin to the duty of attending to the Govoruor, repaired to tho residence of the Governor, in Graincrcy square, whoro Governor Tilden entertained the members of his own staff with a midday breakfast. About half past ono the Governor and sniff drove down in carriages to the Fulton ferry and crossed over to Brooklyn. Ou reaching tho Brooklyn side he was received by Mayor Hunti r, who took a seal in the carriage by the side of tho distiiigu.shed visitor. The party thou drove out to the parado ground. The following commands were forme I In column of companies:? Forty-seventh regiment inlantry, Colonel Austen, numbering about 500 men. Twenty-third regiment inlantry, Colonel Rodney 0. Ward, 300 men.

Battery A, four guns, Captain Schlig, 60 men. Battery B, four guns, Captain Timms, 60 men. About 15,000 people wore assembled about the lines i which marked the enclosure, while at least three hun dred carriages and vehicles of evory description wore in tho roadways. Captain Jewett, drill captain of the police, and a detachment of men, assisted by a section of park police, maintained order. Chief Engineer Cuy ler, of the park, was also active about ihe site set apart for the reviewing olllcers, iu supervising the ar rangements for tho accommodation ol those whose duty attracted them to that locality. There were present about ihe latter lection of tho ground Congressman Archibald Bliss, Mayor Hunter, General Villmar. o; New York; Colonel Budke, of the Third cavalry; Colonel Unbecker, Major General 8 baler, of tho First Division, Nallona Guard. Colonel l'arko, ex-Register .McLaughlin and family, Commissioner W. A. Fowler and family, E. B. Cadley nn<l family, and Mrs. l'elton, sister ol His Excel lency the Governor. 1'rior to the inspection the Gov ernor was furnished with a handsome brown horse, po -o. sed oi eon.-i leral'le mettle, aud ho handled the steed with much grace and dexterity during tho ex ercises on the field. About lour o'clock the division was called to "At tention!" and the G .vomer, accompanied by General Dakiu, and followed by his staff, came on Hie field. A Salute of thirteen guns was fired by Battery A in honor ol His Excellency. As tho Governor passed al ng the liont of the column, coming in 'rom the right, the band played, as be passed by, "Hail to the Chief," and tho officers saluted. Having gone tho entire length of the divi sion the Governor and his escort rodo around it, and, on coming to the front, took up position in the centre. At half-past four the division formed into column by companies and the review was inaugurated, the troops moving in slow but well measured order, and 1 ttie band playing. At this juncture, most auspiciously, [ t tie darl^ clouds which had bidden the luce of tho sun ' clcaieu away, and the gr-en swmfd ami the bright arms 1 aud accoutrements of the soldiers were lighted up in a most pleasing muaoer. General Dak in and staff, having filed past and saluted, took up a position at tho right of the Governor. Then followed General Mcserole and ; the Eleventh brigade, and Colonel Berger arid the Fifth brigade, in the order above givefl. Tho men marched well, and the olllcers saluted with a pre cision i hat was creditable. Tho Governor repeatedly raised his hat in recognition of tho commands as they : tiled past. The Fourteenth regiment, veterans of the war, were loudly cheered by tho spectators near tlnf ? reviewing stand. The ceremonies on the parade ground terminated about live o'clock, and the division, with the exception of the Thirteenth, Four teenth and Forty-seventh, was dismissed The latter named commands acted as escort to tho Gover nor, who visited tho new armory of the Thirteenth regiment, Flatbush avenue, corner of Hanson place. At,the latter building he was received by Colonel Jour dan, of the latter regiment, and made a brief inspec tion of tho place. He then repaired to No. 187 Monta gue street, division headquarters, wbcro, as guest of the staff of the division, ho was entertained during tho ovoning. Bis Excellency expressed the highest appro bation of the creditable inspection and review thai tho Second division hid undergone. Tho number of soldiers reviewed was about 3,000. AN ASIATIC GUEST.

The rhinoceros that has arrived here seems to bo very dainty in tusto, eating nothing but sweet potatoes and the very best ol dried hay during the voyage, which lasted about two months. THE PALLA INDIANS. Provtdk.vcs, R. L, Oct. 8,1875. To TUB KniTOB OP TH? IIKKA 1.1):? The CoinmiMtdonur of Indian AITairs, In a telcgranhia despatch which I havo Just read, says "the trouble with the Palla Indians does not arise from any Interference by the department, as charged by Mr. Nordhoff" I did not charge "the department" with interference in this case, but with neglect. I pointed out that in Northern California it had formerly interfered and perpetrated a wrong upon some Indiana and showed how, in the case of the Pallas, its non-interference to protect these In dians against wrong or its failure to advise and guide them if it is proper that thoy should be ejeclod from the lands on wuich thoy have long lived, would bo a wrong. When It suits the Indian Bureau It claims that the Indians are the "unfortunate wards of the nation." Very well, if thoy are so then let their guardian seo to It that iu such a ease us tins they shall not suffer wrong or loss by summary ejectment. The intorvontiou of Congress is not needed to make a temporary home lor the Pallas on public lands, or to give them sensible advice ok to their futurs eourso, or to enable them to sell their cattle and sheep at a fair price, and thus secure their property. That much "the depart ment" can do As to their being in a "destitute and deplorable condition," that moans supplies, probably. Itiil thoy are not hunting Indiana Thoy are accus tomed to labor, and they eau earn wages, as hundreds ol other Indians do iii California, and Koveral hundred others did in the same .Suite before they were driven from their employments by Wis Indian Bureau and pi lined up on a reservation What was needed was that "the department" should have caused a senalblt and human.- person to prepare the way for scattering the Palla families over the country as laborers before the time came for their ejectment. This could easily liavs been done and at a trilling cost, flic dispute lot lull owner snip of III.! Temecula ram he is no new thing, and II it has been decided adversely to the Indians tins could hardly have happened without the knowledge ol "the department." Itospectluliy, CHARLES NORDHOFF. TILE "GREAT DESERT OF SAHARA." To thb Editor o? ths Hskald:? Various publications havo appeared in different parts, particularly in tho Condon papers, setting forth a pro posed plan of flooding^1llio Desert of Sahara, thereby making It an ocean or inland sen, by opening n cannl or channel irom the Atlantic Ocean. The depth of tho deSSft below tho level of the ocean is .staled as 600 to 760 (eel; the area In square miles is oval 'J.000,000; the average depth is not generally knowni but sulllce to say that if such a projei I should be started and not under the complete control of those in chargs of the work the earth could, and no doubt would, thes be thrown off its present balance, to a certain ex tent, which could be ascertained with certainly if tlu actual size and depth could be known; lor "if evon grant of sind removed alters the balance of the world* what would this great change do? It might prodtio the effect to cause the "end ol the world, 'which, no cording to tho prophecy of "Mother Shiplou" will b< in 1881. 4. E. A | Ntw York. Oct. 11. 1875.
