Some of the leading Irishmen of New York, Philadelphia and other cities en courage the movement on the ground that the Irish element in this country has no standing politically or com mercially, which their numbers and im jiortance entitle them to. They say that Liie Germans exceed them in almost ev- crv snhere. and thut this is due to their -lefault of cohesion and harmony, and to religious and political contention. Irishmeu, like members of the German union, win De pieugeu w support one another in preference to persons ol other nationalities, witnout distinction or sect or party. mother Bis I.MS Treasury Move Washington, June 1.

Chicago, June 1. a number of prominent railroad nieu are in the city, quartered at the New Pacific hotel, which has just been opened to the pub lic. Among them are Horace F. Clark and Augustus Schell, of New York ; John Duff, of Boston; Jonn F. Macy and M. L. Sikes. A good deal of inter est has been created by the rumor that the Vew York Central interest has ob tained eontro) of a majority of she stock of the Northwestern and of the Chicago, Kock Island and Pacitk railroads, and would at the anneal eleetiou of director. which occurs hen on Wednesday next, make a radical change in the management, throw ing out Mr. Tracy and his friends, while it is probably tra- that Mr. Clark and his associates now h ld a majority of Northwestern stock, and a large in ter. i in the Rock Island and Pacific. The Illinois legislature, which permits the election of only three directors at annual elections, would prevent aii im mediate radical change In the manage ment of either road, but ft is now under stood that the interests of the New York Central will be best subserved by retain ing Mr. Tracy in the -rssidency ot the roads mentioned, and whoever will be elected to the directory on Wednesday will not interfere with fr's management.

He had recently pur chased a handsome cottage at Matarpan. near this city under the name of E. H. Russell.

A special dis patch from Annapolis says: At the graduating exercises of the cadets yes terday Admiral Davis delivered the an nual address in the chapei, after which a dress parade took place on the grounds. The graduating midshipmen and engi neers then stepped forward from the ranks, threw down their muskets and swords, as customary, and marched up in front of ,s retary Robeson, the band playing Ain't I (jac to get Out oj the WitUmcM.

By the recent death of Mr. Hope- Scott, Abbotsford, the home of Sir W al ter Scott is left in the hands of his onlv daughter by his first wife. Miss Lockart, Mir Walter's granddaughter. Mr. Hope- Scott was a barrister, whose practice was principally before committees of the legislature. And for many years, while tut-ci instruction ot railroads pro ceeded so actively in England, this branch of nis profession became so ex traordinarily lucrative that he and a few mure made incomes far in excess ol those earned at common law and chan- ery. Mr. Hope-Scott lost his first wife, the last survivor of Scott's family, some years agn, and subsequently married the sister of the duke of Norfolk ; she also preceded him. Early in his career he followed his friend Dr. Manning'nto the Romish foid. In private life he was sin gularly attractive, being regarded as oue of the most agreeable men of the time. J AltSON, TENN. The Presbyterian Female College- Man Killed with a Base Ball Cicb. i'roin au Occasional l.'or respondeat Jackson, Mav 30. Tomlin's hall was- filled to overflowing lest night by the citizens of our town, the attractiou be ing the commencement exercises f the fresovtenaii female college, a nourishtnt; institution of this city, presided over by Kev. J. fc,. Bright, a gentleman well- kuowu throughout West Teuuessee as a thorough educator. The exercises con ¬ sisted of music, reading essays by the graduates, awarding decrees, and an address by Mr. iiiair, a prominent young lawyer ol this city. I he graduates were Misses Ella Stacy and Mattie Elder, the latter of Trenton and the former of Memphis. Our quiet citizens were awakened this morning to learn the news of the killing of a Mr. Wahefield. a black smith, by Pat R'igers, a barkeeper, in that portion of the town known as "Irishtown." She facts, as I learn them ou the streets this morning, are as follows: Wakefield had contracted a debt at the bar, which he neglected to pay, and going into the saloon, he was requested by Rogers to settle, at the same time being reminded of the fact that if he did not do so be ! Roger.) would take more blood out of him - Wakefield than would make up for the whisky he had drank. Wakefield retorted iu an abrupt way, whereupon Rogers picked up a base-ball club and struck him on the head, killiughim aiini's: instantly. I have not heard whether Rogers was arrested or not, but suppose he was, as Jackson has a good jKilice force who do their duty. The supreme court is in session now, and the fate of a number of Memphis criminals will be decided in a few days. ANOTHER ACVOIWT OF WAKEFIELD'S Ml'KDEK. From the Jackson Whi and Tribune. On Thursday evening, oetweeu seven and eight o'clock, James Wakefield, au employe of the Mobile ami Ohio ma 'hine shop, was heat to death with a liase-ball club by Patrick Joyce, a saloon-keeper t n East Chester sirtet. At the hour of goiug to press we could not obtain full particulars, but the following statement, made to us by several who were more or less acquainted with tile facts, may be relietl ou as substantially correct. Wakefield owed Joyce a kar I account of five or six dollars, the pay ment ol wnicn Joyce deuiauded on Wakefield's entrance into his saloon, Thursday everting. It seems that Wakefield would or could not pay the bill, and that one word brought ou another, until finally Joyce, in a towering passion, seized a base-ball club, struck Wakefield down, and beat him over the head frightfully aud fatally. The assault was in Joyce's saloon, and after being beat sanseltss, Wakefield was dragged out on to a front gallery, where he lay insensible until lix o'clock next morning, when he diixi. Joyce made his eecape, after waiting six hours to determine whether or not In victim would die, not leaving his saloon until after eleven o'clock, or his house until after one. There are two state ments, one of which reflects on Chief McCabeand Officers Sewell and McKae for - riuiiual neglect of duty in not ar resting Joyce, whom the former, at least, saw after the deed was com mi tied. The other statement goes far to exoner ate these officers from all blame in the matter whatever. We will not putish j either until better informed. However, I we think that Joyce should have been arrested aud confined uutil the isams ol I life or death was decided, and that a failure to do so was either a neglect or misconception of duty.

While Gen eral Sherman, in conversation, contin ues to emphatically discountenance the request made to the governor of Texas for the release of hantanta and Unr-Tree be baa no aulbority to iuterfere in the mutter, it being in the hauds of the ex ecutive authority; but at the same time he thinks whatever promises have beeu made for the restoration ot those chiefs to their people, they ought to oe carried out in good faith. The Mexican minis ter has not yet received j full, official ac count of the particulars attending Col onel McKenzie's operations against the Liipons and Ktckapoos, and therefore is not now prepared to repre sent the case to our government with a view to explanations. There is no doubt but these will be placed on the ground of duty of the government to protect its citizens and punish all hostile Invaders of our soil when fouud, the Mexican government being unwilling or unable to prevent such incursions. it is said in military circles that the opera tions of Colonel McKenzie will doubtless serve as a warning to all armed bands who cross over to our territory for steal ing or murderous purposes. REPORT ON FRAUDS COMMITTED BV IN DIAN At HUNTS. The report of the bouse committee on Indian affairs, upon the subject of frauds upon tne government and Indians by Indiad claim agents, which will be made to the forty-third congress, seems to be au interesting and exhaustive document. The committee has made a searching investigation, aud, as an indication of what they have discovered, it will be sufficient to give an extract with refer ence to the fraud ot Liatrols?, (.'ooperanu Cochrane, which occupies a prominent place in the report. After giving the agreements made by Latrohe with the Chock taw and Chickasaw delegates of 188t, the committee express the fol lowing views: "Ihese agreements. though ostensibly witn John H. H. La trobe, are really fraudulently and collu- sively made in the interest of -Latrobe, Douglass H. Cooper, and J. T. Cochrane, who were to receive one-half, and the delegates of the Choctaws and Chicka saws, respectively, who were in collu sion with L.atrooe, i. ooper and Coch rane, to have the other half of all moneys and fees provided for under the said agreement to be paid to Latrobe. These parties have received their shares so far as collections are made. Latrobe was the representative rascal of the lot. as he was at that time supposed to have more character than Cooper or Cochrane; and further, oecause Cochrane had another exorbitant con tract with the Choctaws for thirty per cent, of their net proceeds, the claim then amounting, without interest, to two million eighty thousand five hun dred dollars and eighty five cents. The lee on this amount would have been six hundred and twenty-four thousand seventy-eight dollars and twenty-five cents, and if any interest should be al lowed on any part of the claim, the thir ty tier cent, would attach to that also; and also because Cooper had, while I'nited States agent to the Choctaws and Chickasaws, in lSell, become both a traitor and defaulter; hence the use ol Latrobe's name only as attorney. Latrobe was willing to prostitute his profession and collude with his clients' agents to defraud his cli ents, the Choctaws aud Chickasaws, aud divide the spoils with Cooper, Coch rane, and the delegates of 1H66, all of whom were his accomplices, except Robert Jones. Latrobe was the proper person for such things, and being well sustained by his coadjutors, has succeed ed in defrauding the Choctaws of one hundred thousand dollars aud the Chick asaws of two hundred and eight thou sand three hundred and ' six dollars and sixty-seven cents, which it is the duty oi the United States government to counsel him aud bis accomplices to re fund to those nations respectively." M'KENZIB'S RAID DISCUSSED. The administration is at last willing to admit that Colonel McKenzie did not pursue the Kickapoos into Mexico with out instructions from Washington. Wheu the President was asked by an intimate friend whether the iuvasiou was a departure from the policy of the government, he replied : " Ifyour neigh bor's pigs come into your carnfiehl aud destroy your crop what use is it to com plain .' That wiil not restore the corn. You would naturally say remove the cause. But somebody says the cause of the trouble is the pig. I don't think so. The pig wiil be true to bis instinct. The real trouble is, we liave no fence. The river has been, diplomatically, the dividing line. The United States has beeu will ing to cousiiier the weakness of Mexico and its inability to protect its borders. It would be foolish for us to complain now. That point was made against the I uited States duriug the Fenian raids. We did not pretend that the border w as inviolate. All that the British go win -meut argned was that the United S'ates, being at peace with England, and hav ing fritudly relations with the United S'.ates, the crossing of a boundary line iu pursuit of an enemy, equally so to the United States aud Great Britain, could not consti tute a cause for misunderstanding. If this was true with Ureat Britain, how much more with Mexk-o? We could not guard our frontier then with the army authorized by congress. Neither can we now; but that is no reason why our country should not pur sue bandits whether they cross the Texan or the Canadian line. We have 'not complained because the British authorities have doue so, nor have we complained seriously at the offensive acts of the Mexican gov ern meut. But, as far as 1 have influence, I am determined our cit izens on the Rio Oraude shall haw the same protection those enjoy iu the interior States. There will not be war. There is no occasion for hostili ties. The Kickapoos and Lipaus can no longer occupy Mexican territory peacefully. Colonel McKenzie has al ready received orders to exterminate both bauds, and if his force is not suffi ceut, to ask for more. If Mexico is to be an asylum for highway robbers after the United States protests we do not in tend to sanction it. Aud if the Mexican government complains this administra tion has resolved to treat the accessory as guilty as the principal." THE MODOC STRl'CIOLB. San Francisco, June 1. News from Camp Banks, on Willow creek, twenty oue miles northeast of Boyle's camp, on Tule hike peninsula, up to May 29tb, at seven o'clock in the evening, state that the cavalry and artillery com mands and the Warm Spring Indians, under Colonel Green, left Boyle's camp at two o'clock that morning, aud rode in hot haste to Clear lake, where General Davis issued special or ders for the scout. Bogus Charley, Steamboat Frank, Shack Nasty Jim, and Hooka Jim accompanied the expe dition and lead the way to Captain Jack's Willow creek retreat. They led the troops to a point near Jack's Point, within a mile of the stronghold. Cap tain Hashrouck passed up on the north side rT the creek with his squadron, and Captain Jackson's squadron passed over the creek and along the south side. Cap tain Hasbrouck, naviug had a mile farther to travel than Captain Jackson, did not arrive at the stronghold in time to accomplished the desired connection. Captain Jack was nevertheless sur prised at two o'clock this afternoon Jackson's man came across two pick ets ou the bluff near the ureck, ran them through, and jumped into Jack's re treat. The fleeing Modoc cried out: " Run quick! Run quick! The soldiers are coming!" Captain Jackson de ployed his skirmishers along the face of the bluff, though expecting to receive a heavy fire. The men ran to the front like deer, under the lead of officers. Suddenly the Modocs who were 1 conversant with English cried out "Surrender, surrender! we no fight, we warn to talk peace, we like talk peace." Boston Charley, the mur derer of Rev. Dr. Thomas, came In full view, and was immediately covered by a dozen rifles. Charley offered to sur render, and was allowed to come into camp, as he feared the Warm Springs scouts, he threw down his rifle and ex tended his hand as a token of friend ship. The proffered member was cor dially grasped by the scouts. Charley was then passed to the rear. Next he was taken to the other Modoc captives, and by them introduced. He says that several of Jack's best warriors wanted to leave him and come into our camp and volunteered to put up the job. His gun was returned to him and be was allowed to depart on his mission. Hard ly had this arrangement been effected when a rifle in the hands of Steam boat Jack was accidently dis charged, when several of the Modocs, who stood with upUfted hands, de camped. At this point the accident was explained to Charley, and all suspicion of foul play removed, when another ac cident caused Charley more annoyance. Captain Hasbrouck's command reached the edge of the creek as Cliarley came over the bluff, and of course he was gathered in as a prisoner a second time. Two hours afterward he was released and sent aftsr the fleeing Modocs, but he failed to overtake them. Not a shot other than accidental ones was fired. Had Hasbrouck formed the desired con nection the entire band would have been killed or captured. It was impos sible for his command to accomplish the task. His troops did all that could be done by an men, They rode over fragments of lava, and one mile further than the distance ridden Mr Captain Jackson's command. The surprise resulted in the surrender of Boston t haries, .Frim-ess Mary s sister. Captain Jackblock, Jim's woman, and five other female Modocs from nine to twenty years of age, and captured seven ponies and mules. The Modocs actually slipped from the grasp of the troops. There was no help for this result. Can tain Jack's retreat this tTime was inside of the canon through which runs Wil low creek. The canon has steep sides, averaging two hundred feet high. There are a few places where the canon can be entered by troops within six miles of Jack s last home. The Modocs escaped by running down the canon. The Mo doc captives will try to wean more of Jack's warriors from him. Many of the officers predict a speedy settlement of the war. We sleep among juniper to-night. Laugell's Valley, May 30, -3 a.m At six o'clock yesterday morning troops left Willow creea camp Tor a sharp and decisive scout, and met with admirable success;. The Warm Springs Indians trailed the Modocs across the creek and in a northeasterly direction, thence due north, and finally to the rocky cliff bordering on Laugell's valley on the east, this scout was. from the outset. the most exciting of the campaign. The fresh tracks and apparent proximity of the Modocs maintained a continual ex citement. Over ridges, mountains along canons and valleys, and over small streams of water, the route was traveled with difficulty by the best trained horses. Miles upon miles of lava-oeds, in fragmentary form, were crossed, the troops literally leaving be hind them a trail of blood and horse-shoes. Several miles south of the valley the scouts lost the trail, and we suffered a detention of two hours and a half, which was broken by sudden yells from the Warm Springs Indians and cheers from the soldiers. The com mand was formed by Colonel Green; scouts were sent out to the right and left of the line, and covered the trail, lhen came troop K of the First cavalry, Ma jor Cresson commanding, Lieuten ant Bacon in charge of the skir mishers. Captain Hasbrouck's squad ron had another equally important po sition, and was, as usual, on time aloug the crest of the bluff and down the steep trail on its side. He charged with hiseutire force of two hundred and Uur ty men. Suddenly four rifle shots were fired from the rocks and four bullets whistled over the aol diers. A line of skirmishers deploytu along the crest of the bluff, and started the Modocs from their lair. About this time Scar-faced Charley and two or three other Modocs rushed down the rocks and cried out: "We surrender: don't shoot." Five Modocs came iu, and at once hostilities ceased. Dr. Car boness, the Yreka contract doctor, who has long been acquainted with the Mo docs, went among the rocks and made peace negotiations. All the Indians, in cluding Jack, agreed ti come in. Car- boness slept with them last night. A few minutes since Soar-faced Charley, old Scboncbin and teti warriors sur rendered. Jack and three others de cani pei I by night. OiTRAU&i) AND Ml KDERED. THE CROPS. Horrible Crime In Rutherford Couaty A Respectable Widow Lady the Yietim. a Jlegro, Joe Woods, Arrested for the t'rtnie Lynch Law Threatened. Krom Hie NfssuviUV Bauner. :ilst., We glean from a Murfreesboro paper the details of an atrocious outrage near Versailles, Kutherford county, which are substantially as follows: Between the hours of twelve o'clock Saturday night and daybreak Sunday morning, a horrible outrage and murder was perpe trated upon the person of Mrs. Elizabeth Hampton, a poor but highly respectable widow woman who was employed as cook in the family of 'Squire Richard Nance, by a negro named Joe Woods. It appears that Mrs. Hampton had but recently moved to the Nance place, and was living in a cabin formerly occupied by the negro, Joe Woods, who was well acquainted with the premises. On the 1'iesday ingot preceding tne muruer,tne negro man went up to ner uoor ami knocked, stating that two white men wanted to see her. She replied that white men had no business at her door at that hour of the night, and refused to open it. Nothing more was noticed in the conduct of the negro man until Satur- iav afternoon, wheu he wus eeen ptowi- ing around Mrs. Hampton's house and looking into the interior through a crev ice where some boards had been k nocked off. As she was retiring to her house Saturday night Woods accosted her, asking whether she intended taking per ax in with her. She told him she was in the habit of taking it in every night. I'he negro then went away. As Mrs. 11. did not make her appearance at 'Squire Nance's house at the usual hour Sunday morning, a party, suspecting something wrong, proceeded to her abode. They knocked upon her door, but receiving no answer, burst the door in; and the lady was found with her skull badly fractured, evidently done with an ax. Upon the bed in her room were lying her three little children aged respectively Ave, eight, and eleven years, who were quietly sleeping, unconscious that they had been bereft by the hand of the foui murderer of their loved mother. Suspicion at once fast ened upon the negro, Joe Woods, as the perpetrator of the crime, and instant search wtio made for him. He was caught, and on Monday morning a pre liminary examination was nau oeiore Esquire Lamb, of Murfreesboro, and Woods was commuted to tne county jail ou a charge of murder. It appears in eviueuce thai, on tne tues day night precediug the commission of the nornbie crime, v oous nau ooasteu to some of his colored friends that he in tended to satisfy his hellish desires on the person of Mrs. Hampton, and about two o'clock on the morning of the mur der, as his wife testified, she missed him from her bed. in addition to an tins, when Mrs. Hampton was found on Sun day morning she was yet conscious, though sinking fast, and fully incul pated Woods as her murderer. At last accounts Mrs, H. was barely alive, but hope is entertained of her recovery. There are dark hints of lybch law In connection with the incarcerated mur derer.

This section of the Htate has beeu afflicted with continued rains lor ten days. Very little work has been done on the farms during this time. The wheat crop, which was quite promising ten days since, is now threatened with great damage. The cotton crop is threatened with destruction from weeds and grass. Tobacco planting has pro gressed iu the mean time, but every other farm interest is suffering. Purti fntelligencer. In the rich valleys ttween Athens and the Tennessee at London, here and there a good piece of wheat can be seen, but the average is a good deal below the prospect this time last year. The state ment in some of the papers "that the wheat crop in East Tennessee is gener ally good," is not correct. It is generally bad. Athen Pout. The continued spring rain has greatly improved the prospect of the crops, and in some cases where hardly any wheat was expected, a very fair crop will be realized. The cut-worm has gotten into the corn-fields, where it is eating the corn before it sprouts. fCinrton JSatt TeneteaH. MISSISSIPPI. The crop prospects in this county are not very flattering. The late spring has greatly retarded operations, and the ex tremely bad and rainy weather of the past ten days, has put the young crop and all of it is bareiy out of the ground in a very dangerous position, as the grass is making active headway, and the farmers unable to strike a single lick to stop it. if we can have two or three weeks of warm, dry weather, the crop can be put in good condition and the prospect will be good, but if the wet weather continues the grass wiil take possession of the crop, and much of it wiil be lost or badly injured. Pmoli Star. The rains of Tuesday and Wednesday have added greatiy to the troubles farmers. The rapid growth of grass and weeds, aud the length of time necessary to clean the crops on the large majority of farms munt inevitably result in great loss. Were we to judge the cotton har vest of 1873 from present prospects here abouts, we should not place figures hlgner than last season, if so high From what we learn through our ex changes, the season thus tar has oeen universally unpropitious to cotton la- voraoie conditions, however, in future, with a vey late fall, may make the harvest bountiful. Let us hope on hope ever. Urrimaa .Sent met. Since our last week's issue we have beard more extensive accounts of the ravages of the several late severe winds, and in some instances strong! v indl eating violent hurricanes. In many places its track was marked with devas tation and great loss of property. The several late severe winds visited many sections of our country, and in aimoet every instance accomplished much de structionof the planting interest, and in many seriously discommoded the several localities. Mortficeilo Advocate. The heavy rains within the past few days have not seriously damaged the cot ton or corn crop in this section. It is true the farmers are greatly delayed in cleans ing and working the crop, but if the weath er continues favorable for a few weeks to come no loss wiil be sustained. Reports from all parts or this and adjoining counties are nattering lor a large vield, notwithstanding the uufavoraole pros pects in the early part of the spring. The growing crops generally in this country are in nourishing condition. One old farmer informs us that there has not been as fair prospect for a num ber one crop since the war as there is now. Yxkitttarg lune. The prospect in Jasper county is any thing but flattering. Good stands were generally obtained, but, owing to the protracted cold, followed immedi ately by excessive rains, neither corn nor cotton has grown much. The plants are small, and in some places the cotton is dviug out. The continued wet weather is producing an alarming crop of grass, with which the farmer can donoshiug during the rains. Altogether. the crop prospect is not flattering. ixixuaing Messenger. Notwithstanding the bacKward spring, the crop prospects are good. The area in cotton is Irom teu to I wenty per cent, greater in the delta than last year, and as a general tning good stands are re ported. The working of the crop has commenced m earnest, and with an average season we may anticipate a large yield. Auntm vott'n tinm. ALABAMA.

The prospects aie daily improving for good crops of corn and cotton, as there are as a general thing, good stands of both, and the weather has been highly favora ble tor growing during the last few days.

The general news from our exchanges is that corn prospers well. Cotton is very backward, and in some sections the stand is very poor. Montgomery A'lverttser. TEXAS. An abundance of rain during the past week, and all nature is beaming forth with a different aspect of beauty, from that preseuted a few weeks ago.

But little wheat sown, and but little will be made; the oat crop is late, aud not very prom ising. Gf nvboro Herald. Corn is doing splendidly, and cotton promises much better than a few weeks ago. the dinlculty about corn is there is not enough or it planted Jonehoro Time. The stand of cotton in this section is excellent. The late gentle rains have caused this result, and the young plants look vigorous and healthy. Corn is also doing well, and has recently taken a start to grow. The wheat is heading out, and what little there is seems to be doing very well. Owing to the heavy rains and hard freezes during the win ter, the stand in many instances is very imperfect, and we cannot possibly count much on the wheat crop this year. Not withstanding the late damaging frost, there seems to be, in many places, a very good supply of peaches," apples and other fruit, and at this time it bids fair to mature and do well. The seasons thus Car have been fine on the clover and grass crops, and they are growing fine ly. CarteravUle Standard ami Expren. We were informed on Friday last that the cotton and corn crops in Dirt Town vaJey, in Chattooga county, are in fine condition, and never promised a better yield. The wheat crop is poor, and in a great many sections none at all will 1st made. Clover is looking well and grow ing fast. Oats will turn out poorly. The farmers are all up with their work; the grass and weeds have been killed with the plow and hoe, and the growth of the crops will not be impeded. Oa the line of the Rome railroad, between Rome and Kingston, the cotton, corn and clover crops are looking remarka bly well. The lands look to be in a fine state of cultivation. The crops have recently been thoroughly worked, and the corn looks fresh and green, with a good stand. The stand of cotton is good, aud looks clean and thrifty. Sev eral large fields of clover are as fine as any we have ever seen. The wheat is small and scattering. Rome C'o'-i trial. THE C ALIFORNIA WHEAT CROP. The Sacramento Record charges the San Francisco papers with recklessly exaggerating the probable falling off of the coming wheat crop compared with that of last year, and proceeds to make estimates indicating three-fourths of a yield. These figures are not susta:ned by the facts as gleaned from corresrmnd nts and the local papers of the bmvv wheat-growing districts. With the sin gle exception of Sonoma and Marion counties, the crops will be short in every wheat-growing county ia the State. If the word of the men who own and seed the ground is worth anythiug. the en tire stretch of country from Antioch to Grayson, on the west side of the San Joaquin river, will produce nothing. In the valley proper south of San Joaquin county the crop Is an almost total fail ure. The foothill sections will yi-dd a fraction of an ordinary harvest, but the acreage here is as uothing compared with the valley. Solano and Yolo coun ties have been blighted by the north winds, and the farmers are glad to real ize a few tons of hay from fields ou which thev expected to harvest manv bucdred sacks of wheat. Altogether the prospect is anything but encouraging. San FranritKD Chronicle. HfKU XOTICE. s.VLES The friends and acquaintances ol i.i. Sal. a ami Richard '.
