I.rtfer from Joe. San Francisco, Oct. 28, 1869. THINGS IN OKNERAL Are about all there is of it as yet. To be sure, there are many things of particular import to certain localities transpiring, or about to, but which would not interest the Idaho reader. For instance, the first of next month and week is expected to complete the Pacific railroad to a point as near San Francisco as it will get for awhile; and Oakland is sort of prom ised cheap ferry facilites, and other favors and prestige. But to offset that, " J. W." and I threaten to take stock in a new paper over there at the same time, in which event you may be benefited in the way of a loss of some correspondence. There has been a good soggy wet spell of weather, which on the whole gave satisfaction ; it caught some grain in the sack, which served the owners right—at least it will be beneficial in the long run to the State, fornia farming is too slip-shod in every respect, and now that the rail road has brought the State into com petition generally, it is become nec essary to reconstruct the State gen erally—farming particularly. I don't think there is going to be a crash here of the sort croakers predict. The trouble is, that the people are too much given to judge everything the quartz basis —if things pause or take a turn, they must go to the devil anyhow, whether there is any j necessity for it or not. They used I to unlearn a great deal as well as learn, in California and on the coast. A few of the heavy operators in one thing or another may bust or bank rupt, but generally things are solv ent enough hereabouts, road, however, is a greater levelor than the business community like to acknowledge. There is no necessity for a crash, in the usual eense of the term; and hence there is no sense in believing there will be ; on the other hand, everything points to better But this will not stave Cali on The rail I times soon. hau |j n g an( j leveling down right • off the necessity for a general over along. There has been a rush going on in regard to San Diego, a supposed j terminus of the 32d parallel railroad, j which at least cannot really benefit i the place much for several years. ^ harbor of San Diego is large j enough to accommodate sufficient ' shipping for a largo city, hut it is j not one twentieth part the extent ot the harbor inside the Golden Gate. 1 Several one-horse towns, all under ! j the common title of San Diego, are : scattered round the bay for ten miles, ' and real estate agents have been : p i ay j n g up0Q that to a fearful extent; besides, the title to real estate there abouts i* mostly mixed and uncer Tbere is not as much good tain. available farming land within one hundred miles of San Diego as there ig in B oise valley ; besides there is little or no water for irrigating, and it is a question whether artesian wells will bring it. j r j n if j s go ld in the town at so much a pail-full, and what the peo . j ack ( jj ey ma k e up with bad K * w hisk^. Everythiug 1» gobbled or fearfully overdone, and if I were to wait tor a railroad town at Water nt all fit going San Diego or Puget Sound, I would choose the latter. There is a good ! enongh climate right around the bay * of San Diego, and that ia « the size of it" at this writing. It stands to j reason that the main terminus of the ' Southern Pacific road will be on ! tins bay, via the San Joaquin valley, There is an immense amount of dis- ! gusting bosh being printed on this j coast against this city, but ^an Diego , will be a rival to the extent of a fly j rally be but one city seaport, or else they must be deadly rivals. Vallejo, 28 miles north of here on a small j arm of the bay, <s a promismg town, j but it is fulminating vast quantities of undiluted bosh on the rival busi ness. The old town is a dirty doby ! scraggling place, of three or four j thousand people a little waked up ; I nien there is a railroad terminus j town a mile and a half away in op-, j position, and the Navy Yard on ' Mare Island. Real estate is over- j done for the present all round, and | should the Benicia road to Oakland, etc., be completed, the seaport ! •* rival" of Vallejo would amount to a tempest in a teapot—no more. : The Central Pacific road holds the. ' cards to the situation generally, aud i if that corporation don't play them : to a dot there is no further use in 1 prophecy. They have not given up getting a hold on Goat Island, mid- ; way between here and the Oakland : boat landing; and there is a general belief that the great railroad con cern is going to make a seaport of its own with the great water iront With this on an ox's horn. The foolish idea seems to be that there should natu donated it by Oakland, road across the continent, and their roads in progress and projected up the Sacramento valley to Oregon, and up the San Joaquin towards tho Tejon l'ass and the 35th parallel,— they have things generally where the hair is short, or else there is no use in figures. Another year will better tell, and it will tell a good deal too ; these railroad people gen erally aro getting their ideas up wonderfully on the subject pertain ing to this Stale and coast. « Vallejo route " to Sacramento is doubtless a thorn in the side of the Central on local traffic, and 1 expect the latter, or somebody in Tlte to see their interest, commence a road at Iienicia and keep west of the former road and connect with the Oregon road about Bed Bluff. That road then could as easily cross the Straits of Carquinez and continue down to Goat Island or the Oakland front as roads can cross the largest rivers. Even stopping at Benicia, etc., it show with the would have an even Vallejo route,—the latter at present is connected with this city by along This sort of speculation may ferry. be of as much interest ns tiikatkical gossip,. KTC. Adams holds out after a fashion at the California ; the Florences at Ma guires—-all closing out this week. Charlotte Thompson will star it at the former next week - she run two successful engagements here last spring— one on the *tage, the other by marrying the agent, Rogers. The Mechanics Fair closes this week also, except the wind-up ball, milla Orso, a celebrated female vio linist, arrived last night, and will her machine for several nights ( ' H» run The •• Fakir of Vishun " (whatever thal is > wi " °P en tlle Metropolitan awhil <' : the great ller »ann, chief of all the magicians, is booked for San Francisco.
