JBt The Tea Trade- The tea trade here during the past year, though not altogether favorable to the jobbing interest, has demon strated the fact that this article can not only be purchased from the San Francisco market at rates which defy the closest competition of Eastern cities but in lots that average much higher in quality than those imported by Eastern jobbers, via the Suez Canal. The imports by this route are subject to longer test and greater variety of changes in climate than are the car goes of teas, passing through more equalized temperatures, to ttiis market. Hence the latter receive their cargoes in much better condition and lose less of the strength and fragrance in teas than Eastern cargo teas subjected to greater changes in temperature in curred by their means of importation. THE COLORADO VOLCANO. Dees It Resemble tile .Mysterious Wonder in the Florida Wilderness? Several telegrams from Los Angeles have announced the breaking out of a volcano in the Colorado desert, sixty miles from this side of Fort Yuma and eight miles north from the Southern Pacific Railroad. It seems to have started on the 11th instant, at 9 a. m., or at least it was then observed, and according to later reports it lias since, at various times, emitted black smoke, and we are told that it has thrown out rocks; but we suspect that the shaking of the mountain side in which the rup ture has occurred may have caused the loose rocks to roll down. There is no mention of any flame, lava or mud com ing from the volcano, nor is it said that there was any earthquake shock, so the eruption is probably a one-horse affair, out of which no serious excite ment can be. Small as it may be, however, it deserves more attention than it has yet received. No person has yet visited it or given a description of its appearance as visible from the railroad. In fact, there is room for suspicion that it belongs to a class of phenomena previously observed in that region—we mean the mud volcauoes. These are really swamps or muddy pools through which hot steam rises from subterranean sources, and it is said that sometimes black smoke ac companies the steam. These mud vol canoes, however, are in the plain, whereas the outbreak of the Uth in stant is placed on the mountain side. | Alta California. The Russian Vanguard. The Russian advanced guards crossed the Danube in boats when they cap tured Matcliin, hut afterward were transported to the Turkish side of the river in barges. These barges were pro tected at the side by huge wooden bul warks, built up to the height of a man, with loopholes through them. These bulwarks would ward off a bullet, but in the Dobrudsclm, soon after the Rus sian vanguard entered Matcliin, went over to its assistance with ’2,000 more soldiers. As soon as the inhabitants saw the heavily-laden barges coming, the London Daily News states, they formed into a procession and came down to the shore with banners, liolypictures taken from the churches, and various other religious emblems. They were led by three priests and some other church dignitaries in full canonical robes, who met the Russian troops chanting a hymn. General Zimmer mann took off his cap and kissed the little wooden cross that was presented to him, while with a bunch of green leaves they splashed any amount of holy water over his head, and in fact almost drenched him. Each of those who followed were treated with the same copious shower-bath, and as the day was hot and all were in a terrible pers piration, the ordeal was by no means an unpleasant one. The people then greeted the troops with loud hurrahs, and marched after them, manifesting the most extravagant joy, especially the boys, whose delight was as unbounded as it was troublesome. Nevertheless, in spite of something that was grotesque about it all, this reception of the con querors by the conquered, of the invaders by the invaded, had a profound political significance which the Turcop hiles, if there were any present, would have done well to ponder. These people, instead of looking upon the Russians as enemies and conquerors and invaders and oppressors, hailed them with delight and satisfaction as their deliverers from a degrading and terrible bondage. A HERO’S DEATH. The Pcacefnl Close of Stonewall Jackson's Great Career. The death of General Jackson was characterized in its? singularity. At night, when the battle bad ended, just as he had achieved what he believed to be the most successful movement of his career, lie, whom the enemy began to believe both invulnerable and invinci ble, fell at the bauds of his own people. It is needless to repeat the painful story of his wounding and death. At first it was not believed liis wounds were mortal, and the army thought, in the language of General Lee, “Jackson will not—he cannot die.” But it was written. Pneumonia lent its fearful aid to the enemy, and on Sunday after noon he closed his eyes and smiled at his own spoken dream —“Let us cross over the river and rest under tho shade of the trees. ” The dream thus spoken is yet unbroken; and his soul went out to heaven, unlisted by sighs and pray ers, rising that hour from altar and cloister, all over the South, for his re covery. On Friday, the 15th of May, 1803, his body was taken for burial to bis home in Lexington. He had not been there since he left it, two years before, at the beginning of the war. Only two years, and yet how like romance is the simple story of his growth in fame. And now he lies buried as he directed, “in the Valley of Virginia,” and among the people he loved so well. It were better so. He could not have saved the South, and it was merciful that he should perish first. The ten der memory he left behind him in the army, and the stern sense of duty he bequeathed his soldiers, will be told by this little incident with which I close this unworthy sketch. The army of Lee was on its march to Gettysburg, and the commanding general had given strict orders for its discipline in Penn sylvania. An officer riding to camp from Chambersburg, late at night, was halted by the outposts. Having neith er pass nor countersign, in his dilemma lie bethought him of an old pass in Ilia pocket-book signed by General Jackson, whose recent death hung like a cloud over the army. He found it and handed it witli confidence to the sentinel. The trusty fellow managed to read it by the light of a match, and as lie did so lie seemed to linger and hesitate over the signature. And then, as the light went out, he handed it back, and look ing up toward the stars beyond, lie said, sadly and firmly, “Captain, you can go to Heaven on that, paper, but you can’t pass this post.” M. Lamey, a French servant, lias started a novel theory to account for the abnormal rise of temperature in tiie early part of November, known here as the Indian Summer, and in Europe as St. Martin’s Summer. Tho phenome non appears to be general throughout the northern hemisphere. M. Lamey argues that it can hardly have its ori gin either in the sun’s or the earth’s atmosphere, and suggests that it may be due to meteors, which to produce first a sudden fall of temperature by cutting off the sun’s rays, and then an abnormal rise resulting from the reflec tion of the sun’s heat by the meteor swarm. The fact that the November meteors usually occur about the time of St. Martin's Summer, gives some little plausibility to the theory, but it is not clear that the meteors actually pass between us and the sun in such a way as to produce any sensible effect upon temperature. i As a remedy for Fevers, Dyspepsia, Headache * Bowel Complaint, Jaundice, Costiveness, Liver Com ' plaints and all Bilious Difficulties Costiveness Cured, The late well-known Father Taylor. | Pastor of Seamen’s Bethel, Boston, ; Said—“lt Is a remedy worthy of a place In ! : every family, and that Its real virtues are only to be known to be appreciated. We should be very unwilling to be without it. It hus relieved me of severe attacks of Bowel Gun plaints, Dyspepsia and Oostiveness. I would take it with me were I going to sea, and also were I to travel. A Duty to the Community. From the well-known Evangelist, Rev. Edwin Burnham. Newburypoet, Mass., GEO. PIERCE & CO.—I regard it to boa duty I owe to you and the community, to write a few lines in fuvor of your invaluable medicine, called “Dr. Price's Indian Re storative Bitters.” Without flattery, I remark. I think it to be the best medicine of , the kind ever gotten up. EDWIN BURNHAM, j A Family Medicine over; 30 Years. Saved from Death. From Henry Y. Davis. New Bedford. Mass., March 3,1877. Messrs. GEORGE PIERCE & CO.—Your “Indian Restorative Bitters,” of which I have always kept, a supply in my family for the itast thirty years, has saved me hundreds oj dollars, and I am very certain some of i!s mem bers hare been saved from death, which would probably have occurred with different treat ment. Yours truly, HENRY V. DAVIS. Sure Preventive against Disease EVERY MIXER OUGHT TO HAVE IT IX IIIS CAMP. Elder John G. Hook, the well known Evangelist, who with Rev. G. A. Eng land, of this city, in the winter of 1874, carried on the first revival ever had in Wyoming Territory, says: Concord. N. H., March 16th, 1876. GEO. PIERCE & CO.:—Have used your “In dian Restorative Bitters” for more than tiventy years, and can testify personally to Its value as a medicine. I never allow my fum llytobe without a bottle in the house, and Invariably carry It with me in my valise on my Journeys. My experience derived from its long use Is as follows: It is a blood purifier,— is certain to break up a fever", will cure and regulate a disordered stomach, and remove headache. Will cure costiveness and liver complaint. It Is excellent for dyspepsia or indigestion, by taking a swallow after eating. Let those who Are troubled in this way give it a trial; they will And it a sure remedy in such cases. After indulging in a hearty boiled dinner and suffering from an overloaded stomach, the Bitters never fall to give relief. I know it lias saved myself and family from serious sickness many times. Always used it for children’s complaints. Know of no other medicine as good and reli able. I regard the “Bitters” as a remedy that ought to be in every house in the land. Y’ours Truly, JOHN G. HOOK.
