Further from San Francisco.
The Vigilance Committee, moreover, w?
have the fullest assurance, had determined to
fit in perpttHity until not only the citv of
San Francisco, but the entire State, should be
subjected to n thorough purification. Our in
formants state that they have prepared a
black list, embracing the names of about one
hundred and eighty of the most notorious
murderers, thieves and black-legs, all of whom
will be required to quit the country, at short
notice, or contemplate the contingency of
summary judgment before the tribunal of
J udge Lynch. Among their names are said to
be the following :
'* Dave" Broderick, from New York.
Yankee Snlivan, from New York
Charley Duane, (" Dutch Charley,") from
Billy Mulligan, ("great on the pistol,")
from New York
Bill Lewis, (boarding-house keeper )
Colonel James, (lawyer.)
Ned McQowan, (judge)
Daniel Aldrich, (black-leg.)
The two last mentionel. as soon a.-* the de
termiuation of the Vigilance Committee leak
ed out, had departed for parts unknown?to
gether with a numerous Company of what our
Correspondent delicately designate* as "vh< ul
der-hitters ' and "ballot-box etuiTera " The
Col James, who figures in the list as a "law
yer," is said to be notorious for his success in
procuring the liberation of criminals, and. in
this way, has made himself obnoxious to the
The name of H rod crick is laid to head the
list?the same Broderick who ehone as one of
the " bright particular stars'' among the
"bruisers and b hoys" of the city some years
?ire ?, and whose subsequent carter in Califor
nia, politically, was such, we thought, as to
give promire for him of better thing*. We
need not say anything of Yankee Sullivan.
His name has been for a long while past, a
household word amr>Bg the lower ten thousand
in this city?and the bare prospect of bis com
pulsnry return to his old haunts here, will be
likely to create a f? rment among the b< xers
and bruisers This fellow, Sullivan, left New
York on the ith of June, l&i4, forfeiting his
SI 500 recognizance to appear to answer the
charge of prize fighting (with Morrissey at
Boston Four Corners ) Arriving atSsn Fran
cisco, be opened a tlash porter house, on a
grand scale, at a rent of $600 per month Tbe
esthblishment was called " The Gibraltar,"
which was the ooinmon rendezvous of all the
fancy reprobates about town. The ' Gibral
tar," while it stcod, was looked upon as the
Stanwix IIall, or Pewter Mug of San Fran
cisco. Sullivan, however, soon afterwards
quarreled with his partner. Mulligan, who
was the financial partner?the partnership
was dissolved?and 41 The Gibraltar" wajs
closed Our hero then went up to the mines,
and gave exhibitionsof '-the muscle," and the
next we hear of him, is his arrest, at Nevada,
for acting as second in a prize fight. He gave
bail, and returned to San Francisco, where he
led the idle life of a professional vagabond
About this time, his former partner, Melli
gan, (Gibraltar Mulligan,) gave him a seyere
flogging. In September last, h* left suddenly
for Honolulu, Sandwich Islands.
Here his fbrtunes seemed to take a turn for
the better The bruiser, in a short while,
managed to ingratiate himself into the good
graces of His Majesty King Kamehameha.
and for a while he whs quite a favorite with
tbe ladies at his Court?these sometime* ac
cepting his company at the opera ana other
places of amusement. The natives, however,
feeling indignant at the King's fondness for a
stager of this character, Sullivan judged it
expedient to emigrate back to San Francisco
as suddenly as he had come. At San Fran
cisco, he resumed Lis practice of pugilism,
sometimes in selcct private circles, and some
times on " the boards" of the American The
atre. These are the main incidents of his
career, since he left New York If he escapes
the Vigilance Committee, he will let us kn?w
the rest when he gets back to New York
" Hutch Charley," in New York, was a fa
mous Bowery "swell " When Tom Hyer
fought Sullivan in February. 1S50, we think,
down in Maryland, this Dutch Charley figured
prominently, and was always looked upon as
a lion among the fancy fraternity. Dutch left
for San Francisco shortly after the fight above
aliuded to. In California his career was with
out noticeable incident, except a suspicion the
old Vigilance Committee of 1851 had in refer
ence to his connection, or supposed connection
with a conspiracy to rob the banking house of
Palmer, Cook Co. Subsequently he was
elected Chief Engineer of the San Franaisco
Fire Department, in which capacity we be
lieve, he conducted himself without discredit.
One of the last exploits of "Dutch" war an
assault upon the person of Mr. Marcus D Bo
rack at the last election. The action of the
Vigilance Committee now will probably com
pel him to change the scene of his future per
formances.?N. Y. Express.
A Talb or Horror?The Portland (Ore
gon) Argus gives an account of an outrage at
the Cascades, which is sufficient to continue
the Indian hostilities of tribes, were they
otherwise disposed to make peace The Ar
The Indians murdered consisted of the fam
ily of Spencer, a chief, who resides at Van
couver, and was made up of his father, an old
grey-headed Indian, bis fSpencor's) wife, and
four children?a daughter nearly grown and
three younger sons, one of them a suckling
babe. The Indians had been up tbe Dalies ,
in the service of the United States govern- !
ment, and were on their way baok to Van
couver, under charge ef Col. Jos Meek, and
having regular pastes about their persons.
In making the portage at the Cascades, it
; seems that they were overtaken by ssven
rn-jn, (if suoh they might be called,) and for
cibly taken from Col Meek, whose life they
threatened, and one after another was mur
dered by means of a strong cord, which was
tied around the neck and twitted with aetick
till life was extinot. Tbe girl was violated by
these fiends before her life was taken.
Moulding Brick by Concussion.?A ma
chine has been invented for forming or mould
ing brick by concussion, whether it be done
by inechanicism made use of by the inventor
or any other device, which will produce the
same effect. Tbe hopper is filled with tbe
prepared clay?the moulds being on its bot
tom, it is then elevated by the action of the
cam on tbe projection ; this cam is of such a
shape, that when the hopper is at its required
height, it passes from beneath the projection,
allowing the hopper to drop down upon the
table, forcing, by the concussion, the clay into
the mould. The ooncussion is such that the
bricks are perfectly formed, having no inter
stices in them, produced by confined air. A
cut off may be arranged to separate the clay
in the moulds from that in the hopper. But it
is intended to put a mould in one side of the
hopper, while it is in being out on the oppo
site side. _
A Dil?m*a.?When the ship Meredith was
discovered to be leaiting, an Iribh sailor was
employed at .the pump? but first looked over
the rail to see how high the water was on the
side of the vessel. After pumping an hour,
he took another peep over the side, and tid
ing the vessel was four inches deeper then
when he began, he shouted: " Arrah, now,
captain dear, I shall soon pump the sea full
at this rate ; for I have raised it four inches
already!" ? ?

story is related, in wbieh Dr Pond is made
to figure quite prominently On a certain
day bo waa waited upon by a maiden lady of
his congregation, who came to reprimand the
esteemed and somewhat facetious preacher,
for having bought a fiddle for his son. Scarcely
waiting for the usual salutations, upon en
tering the pastor's dwelling, she began, as the
41 I think, Dr. Pond, that a man of your ?go
and profession might bare something better
to do when you ?cre in New London, las;

people were ashamed that our minister should
buy his son a fiddle. A fiddle! Oh. dear,
what is the world coming to, when ministers
will do such things

" Who told me, why everybody says so. anl

New London "
"A violin! what's that?"
"Did you never see one?"
41 Enoch " said the Doctor, stepping to the
door, 44 bring your violin ?"
Enoch obeyed the command, but no sooner
had he entered with his instrument, than the
lady exclaimed :
"La! now there; why it's a fiddle.**
"Do not judge rashly," said the Doctor,
giving his son a wink ; "wait till you bear it."
Taking tbe hint, Enoch played Old Hun
dred The lady was completely mystified

Old Hundred played on a fiddle! it could not
