1 hk Kxn.osiu.N in San Fravci?co. ? Weliavo
already noticed the explosion in San Fran
cisco, w hich was m? <lcsfructi\c in itsefl'ects.
Il is said to have Ihmmi of It
ttK>k place 11 oar Wells, Fargo \ Co.'s Fx press
building, destroying that, killing some of the
employees and all thu horses? blowing every
thing in the vicinity into atom*.
Samuel Knight, superintendent of Wells,
V arjfo & t 'o. s Kxpress, died in hall an hour of
injuries received ; <}. W llell. supervisor and
n -snver, w-as instantly killed: Mr. Wallub,
Wells, largo \ ( 'o s ass.ayer ; Joseph Flliott,
John Gallagher. Frank Webster, and Wilson
.lustin, were also killed. William Ha\ens,
l?>Jok-keej?er of the Pacific Mail Steamship
Company, was killed. Light dead boil ies were
so mutilated that they could not 1m* identified.
Louis INI cLane and Captain Lldridge, of the
Pacific Mail Steamship ( 'ompanv, ami Judge
HotVman. were bruised and cut Felix Lamax,
1? Stacy, .1 etlerson Taylor, 11 . ltlane, (clothing
dealer.) < 'aptain .1. K. A\ res, Frederick Lei/,
Frank Morris, and other., were injured, hut
not fatally.
This remarkable explosion, although re
ported to be from 44 nitro-glycerine," was still
a mystery in San Francisco. The freight agent
of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company says
two boxes, each measuring about four cubic
feet, were taken from the steamers' dock to the
place where the explosion occurred. Their con
tents were unknown ; but tin y were addressed*
one to Idaho City, and the other to Los Ange
las, mining regions, and that the ex plosion was
alleged, from its violence, to be from nitro
glycerine. justifies the inference that thi^
liquid is used in the mines, since it. has
recently been employed in blasting. Nitro
glycerine is composed of three parts of nitric
acid and one of glycerine. It is called "explo
sive oil'' : ami in exploding? which will lake
place at Fahrenheit? each volume is con
verted into 4'5P volumes of carbonic acid. .*>'4 of
steam, ,'M of oxygen, and 'S'ti of nitrogen,
being a total of l.-'.'s of ^:is for each volume of
liquid oil. Calculating the gas from this ma
terial and that of gunpowder as cold, it is
estimated that nitro-glycerine is five times
* io re effective than gunpowder : but as nitro
glycerine produces in explosion twice as much
heat as gunpowder, it is estimated that the
former has thirteen times the power of the
latter, when volumes are considered, and eight
times its power for equal weight. Owing to
its rapidity of explosion.it is said its advan
tages are still greater.
We suppose that this new agent is now used
in California, and well understood there.
The New York City Kaii.roaiis. ? The car
drivers* strike in New York continues. The
drivers, at last dates, had indicated a disposi
tion for arbitration. In the mean time the
('it v Councils have determined to instruct the
attorney for the city to take measures tore
voke the charters of these roads on the
grounds that they had not run their cars ac
cording to the requirements of their charters
and because they had charged more than they
were authorized. Everybody acquainted with
great Gotham knows what openings are pre
sented in an imbroglio like thi^ lur corruption,
and everybody equally knows that those open
ings will not be unobserved nor unimproved.
The city companies are rather in a bother, and
they will have to pay out of it.
Immense Concern*.? It is almost incredible
what vast amounts of sales are made by some
of the principal houses in New \ork. Out of
one hundred in a single district? the largest
business one, however, ? there ate onl\ three
whose sales have been less than one million of
dollars in the last ten months. At the head ot
the list stands II. B. Clafmn k Co., whose
sales reach the enormous amount of $42,306,
715; while A. T. Stewart & Co. report the
amount of their wholesale business lor the
same period at >*<39,S'.*L6i$. What a grand
centre of commerce must that be which makes
such exhibits of the trade of individuals ! Yet
the day may come in after ages when it will
be, like Palmyra, erased from the face of the
earth, and the anchor may rest upon the
granite columns and capitals of the great ox
change of Wall street '
A Sham Exposed?' The Sharp Trick ?'i an
1 m post ok. ? We published a few days since an
exceedingly pathetic account ot the death, by
drowning at sea, ort" the coast ol Cuba, <1 < o
loiiel C B. Brent, late of the Confederate
armv. From information we have since re
ceived, we surmise that the individual whose
gallantry was so highly extolled was the au
thor of his own touching obituary.
So late as the last week in March, ? olonel
! Brent was at the Villa Vista plantation, t ar
roll parish, Louisiana, acting the role of
Lovelace, for which he was somewhat tamoiss
'during the war. While attached to the com
inamt of Geueral Mors was wry c t<
voted to an estimable young lad\ofW\th?
ville Va.; but in the midst ot the courtship
it was discovered that Brent had a wife and
two children in Alexandria, \ a. It was a long
and determined purpose with him to disen
tbral himself from the meshes ol his original
matrimonial estate, and doubtless the canard
he has now set afloat is with the intention o
deceiving his unfortunate Virginian wile, and
the further object of entrapping some unwary
voting lady.
' We are sorry to be obliged to destroy so line
a story as that of the death of Brent. Doubt
le*< were it true, it would ho best for himself,
for his family, the susceptible of the female
race, and the whole world.
Virginia and Vicksburg papers will do a
public favor by noticing the facts we have
mentioned above. ? Jsiuiscillt Oturitr, 14 tu.
Shock i no Octraues? Robbery ? Attempted
Arson, &c.? On the 11th instant, at night, five
i neirro men, armed, went to the house of Mr.
; Berry Scott, Deep Gully, wear the Jones
! County line, and demanded all the lire-arms lie
i had. Having taken possession of they
next demanded the keys of all the locks on the
premises, and then proceeded to plunder.
They took some fifteen hundred pounds <>l
bacon, about eight hundred pounds of pork ;
took all the money in the house, and jewelry
and wearing apparel. They also took ahorse
Miid cart They cut opeu trunks, and tore up
and destroyed things generally. They took
Mr. Scott, who is an old man, out of the
house, and stripped hint, and threatened to
ifive him three hundred lashes il he did not
tell them where his gold and silver were. One
of the miscreants was about to make an at
tempt to violate the person of one ol the old
man's three daughters, but was prevented b>
one of his comrades. Before leaving; they
tied the ladies' hands behind their hacks, and
wound the rope about their necks ami choked
them severely, and struck them on the head
with their guns, and cursed them, and
eued them up in a room. They then tied Jul*.
Scott, W. A. Scott, and A. F. Duval, (who
happened to be present.) in another room, ami
then threw lire upon the Jloor, threatening to
burn the whole lamily up. Fortunately, the
building did not take fire, else all the family
must have perished !
L'p to the present time none oi tbe nenus
have been arrested. The truth is, the people
of the county are now at the mercy of lawless
bands of desperate villains, and have no hope
of security or redress. ? Sci cbeni (A*. C-) <bm

ration I>r. Green's proposition for changes in !
the economy of the church, and other pro- j
po.-.cd changes, at a late meeting of tlie West

>ol\ed to leave the whole matter in the
hands of the General Conference, without
gmug the delegates any particular instruc- I
ions hou* they hlion Id acl in the premises, but j
to act in everything to the interest of the
church as they should deem best when the

that this much should be said t<> show that
the Western \ irginia Conference is not at all
i ii< 1 1 !I< *i en t to the churi h or ourvi'hes by not i
?sending a memorial. W'e have labored there!
through many trials and dilliculties. Our-*

ten have gone toother Conferences. We ha\e
been poor and alllu ted, but we have always
had bright prospects ahead. We have been
cast down, but not destroyed. We still live,
and we glory to state to 'this General Con

to live and still work. We need the sympa

April
I write to inform you of tin- particulars of
an exploring expedition wliuh li'ft here on
Thursday Inst td explore Dead Man's Cave,
situated about four miles south of this place,
three quarters of a mile west of the river. A
few weeks since, a party from Louisville, ac
companied by citizens of this place, explored
it to the distance of three-quarters of a mile,
but were stopped by a wide subterranean river,
too deep for ford iug, which they had no means
of crossing. The party which left here on
Thursday, consisting of Major Throckmorton,
of Louisville: ('apt. Holcraft, Sherill'Swayne,
I >r . K. li. Hawn, and Lyman K. Ktiapp. of
this place; Mr. Jesse ("ran don, of Nashville,
and yotir correspondent, went prepared to
make a thorough exploration of the cave. Be
sides the necessary lights, rope, water-proof
clothing, etc., they carried with them ft light
but staunch boat, prepared expressly for the
occasion, on which to cross the mysterious
stream that had on the former occasion stopped
their further progress.
A thorough and extended exploration was
made beyond this stream, lasting some hours,
and the party was on the |>oiut of starting on
the return, when, at the earnest solicitation of
Dr. Uawn, we consented to at least partially
explore another caveru. It was followed but
a short distance when it suddenly narrowed.
Mr. Knapp, going first, passed through the
opening on his hands and knees, and entered
another large chamber. Dr Hawn, who is a
heavy man, attempted to follow, and became
inextricably fixed in the passage. He could
neither get forward nor back. For three hours
the party worked incessantly, but all to no
purpose. Meantime, one by one, the lamps
had burned out, until barely enough oil was
left to light us on our way back to the river.
The thought of being imprisoned in that
living tomb was too terrible to be endured, for
we knew that 'without light we could never
find our way back. A panic seized upon the
party, and hastily leaving the Doctor and Mr.
Knapp to their fate, we rapidly retraced our
step*, crossed the river, and returned to the
town. A supply of oil, tools, &c., was pro
cured, and we returned to the cave, deter
mined to rescue our comrade* or perish in the
attempt. The river was crossed, nnd-we pro
ceeded to the graud chamber, where we had
taken our lunch, accompanied by numerous
citizmib of Lea\eu worth. Hut, search as
closely hs we would, we could not find the
gallery la which the Doctor and Mr. Ku&pji
were entombed. In vain we explored and |
shouted, until worn out and fainting. All to
no purpose. Nearly three days have pawed
since wo first entered the cave, and during all
that time it has been full of people uselessly
hunting for thp two unfortunate men. One
after anothor of the various galleries leading
from the grand chamber have bepn explored |
and blazed with chalk marks, but still th?*
missing tnon cannot be found. The guide of
the Mammoth Cave in Kentncky has been sent
for to assist in the search.
IV S? Mr. Ivnapp has just been brought in.
A hunter found him lying at the mouth of j
what h;is been generally considered a st^rt of
sink- hole, about five miles from the town.
Mr Knapp's condition is too precarious to ad
mit of a detailed account of his escape ; but i
from what I can gather from his incoherent |
explanations, it seems that, finding hp could
not return, he went ahead in hope of finding '
an outlet. After what seemed an age of wan I
dering and groping in the dark, and after hav- ?
ing several times despairingly laid down to (
din, he was successful in emerging from his J
living tomb. He fainted ou coming to the ?
open air, and was in t li i< condition found bv'
the hunter. A party has just gone to enter !
the cavern by the way in which Mr. Kuapp
came out.
A New Phase of State Kiohts.? Some very
curious and difficult questions have arisen
under the internal revenue laws of t lio United !
Slates. Among these is the question whether
th<* imposition of a tax on a particular pursuit
or avocation forbidden by the law of one or
more of the States operates as a Federal
license of such pursuit or avocation in spite
ol State prohibition. Many of the States, for
instance, prohibit the s.ile'of lottery tickets ;
anl some of thpm prohibit the traffic in liquor.
The question has arisen, whether the Federal I
tax operates as a legalization, in such cases,
of the sale of lottery tickets and the tra/lic in
liquor, and whether, in case it be decided that
it does not so operate, the United States tax is
collectable.
The Lynchburg AV.#c* and the Petersburg In
<I> ' have both published the above paragraph?
papers which are not usually misinformed on
such questions. Not three weeks ago, the Su
preme Court of the United States decided
that such licenses arp merply jfrmiftsice ? that
is, a guaranty that the United States will not
interfere with the business so licensed, pro
vided the State laws allow it to be carried on.
This decision was rendered in the liquor cases
from Massachusetts.
The President's Order to (i enerat. IIran
nan. of Georgia, which was published in the
IHsjmtrh of the 17th, appears in yesterday's
^Baltimore papers. It was telegraphed from
Washington, and is headed "Important An
nouncement? ' The President's Proclamation
Does not Remove Martial Law," &c., &e.
Jeff. Davis & Co.? The House Judiciary
Committee on Saturday had Judge- Advocate
Holt before them, who testified at lpngth upon
the case of Jell*. Davis and 'lay, their
complicity with the assassination conspiracy,
and what steps have been taken to bring them
to justice, lie also furnished the committee
considerable documentary evidence soimpor
tant that they immediately placed an injunc- '
lion of secresy upon it, and to-night several
members pronounce ir sufficient to convict and
hang both of them. ? Unit i more Awrir.in , /?'"//

State Cot n< ii. ok Friends ok Temperance.
The 4 'State Council of the Friends of Tem
perance" will meet in Waynesboro', Augusta
county, on next Tuesday, the 24th instant.
All the Councils in the State are earnestly re
quested to send delegates. The meeting is an
important one, and it is expected to be largely
attended, ami that the cause of total absti
nence will be greatly promoted by the mea
sures which will be adopted. The immoderate
use of intoxicating liquors is inflicting great
oils on the community, and we wish success
to all efforts to check this vice.
The Virginia IIau..?' The new Concert Hall
on Ninth street will be opened on Monday
next with a Grand Matinee, in which several
musical celebrities will appear. It is not pro
posed to make the new building a regular con
cert hall on the plan of those in the North,
but it will be open to engagement at any time
by persons who may wish to give concerts and
entertainments. The German Choral Society
meet on Wednesday night next, and on the
same night in every week. In fitting up the
new building, every pains has been taken to
make ii both elegant in appearance and com*
fortable in use, and it i* certain to become a
favorite place of resort for our own citizens,
as well as for strangers.
Mau i c.? Professor Wyman, who will re
main here until the end of the week, in
attracting large audiences, and his sytdem of
gifts seems to be particularly winning.
On Monday night, a t wo-huudred-aud-flfty
dollar building lot was drawn by Mr. Kube
Macon; and on Tuesday night, a similar
prize was drawn by Mr. Hubbard, of this
city. ; ____

dreuinf , For sale by A. Ii. UbrUtlaa & Co,
Fike at Romcetts. ? Between 12 and 1 o'clock
on Wednesday morning, Page's bakery, at
Port Mayo, below Rocketti, caught fire. The
flames spread rapidly, and before the family
could be aroused, the lire had obtained a firm
hold upon the building. For some time the
lives of the inmates were in great danger, but ,
by great exertion they were all rescued in an
uninjured condition. Despite the exertions of
the fire companies, the whole of the bakery
building and the sheds attached were burned
down. The origin of the tire is not j>ositively
known, but it is believed to have been alto- .
gether accidental.
HrsTisuii Court.? Judge Lyons held his
Court yesterday, and was occupied in the con
sideration of civil eases.
Mayor's CorRT.? Mayor Mayo held his court
at the usual hour yesterday morning.
Mark Rosenthal and his wife were charged
with assaulting Mark Bernstein. l*rom the
evidence it appeared that there had been a
disagreement between these parties for some
time back, which had on several times led to
sharp words ; and a few days since Mrs. Ro
senthal attacked Mr. Bernstein with a basket,
giving him some hard knocks on the head with J
it. It was, however, proven that Bernstein 1
was a man of violent temper, and constantly
quarrelling with his neighbors. The Mayor
discharged Rosenthal, and required Bernstein
to give two hundred dollars' security for his j
future good behavior.
Robert Clarke was charged with stealing a
pistol from Augustus Kuehn, a Federal sol
dier. Kuelm had the pistol taken from him
whilst asleep in a drinking-saloon. Clarke |
j was in the saloon at the time he laid down.
When he awoke, he found that his pistol h* d
been stolen, lie immediately arose, and in
quired when, and 111 what direction, Clarke
had gone. Finding that lie had left only about
ten minutes before, he followed him, and on his
way down the street saw three gentlemen,
who told him that Clarke had gone to the
?? Kx press Saloon,*' and that ho had a pistol
on hiin as he passed them. His Honor sug
gested to Clarke to produce the pistol he had
with him when he passed the gentlemen, and
if it did not belong to Kuelm he would dis
charge him. Clarke first said that he did not
have a pistol with him, and then said that the
pistol he did have belonged to a man who had
! gone to the country. He was sent on.
Henry Fit/, was charged with striking .Tames
Carter, negro, in his store. Carter said that
Fit/ had " hit him for nuthin." Mrs. Myers,
Kit/.'s sister, and a negro servant girl, stated
that Carter had insulted and struck her in her j
store, and that her brother had kicked him out
of the store. The Mayor discharged the par
ties.
Captain R. B. Wini?f.r.? It should have
been stated, in reference to Captain R B.
Winder, that his release was owing to the lact j
th.n there are no charges against him. W by a ,
man should have been arrested at all, against ;
whom there is no accusation, we cannot ex- j
plain. Probably it was because he was mis
taken for W. H. W inder.
A Ji nk Drai.br in' Tuorur.K.? Oh yesterday,
i riiom:is Jefl'i rson, a nesrro, who keeps a junk
I -bop on the corner of Fourteenth and Dock
streets, was arrested by Constable Cole upon a
charge of stealing ir??n lrom the Westham
Iron" Works, near this city. Jefferson at
tempted to make his escape, but was recap
tured. He was committed to jail, and will be
tried on Monday before Justice Wade. The
stolen iron was recovered some days since by
Constable < 'ole.
The Sanitary Conihtion op Henrico
? CorNTY.? Constable Cole has been directed
by the County Magistrates to visit the houses
and lots in the county of Henrico, and to re
port all persons who fail to clean up their
premises iti the manner prescribed by law.
It is intended to carry out the law strictly and
promptly : and those persons who do not de
sire to be lined for neglect, should clear up
their houses and lots at once.
I'oi.irK Arrests.? Patrick Shay, charged
with stealing old iron, the property of the
Richmond and Petersburg Railroad Company.
Sally Parker, a negro, charged with stealing
a stove.
Revivai. at JjBi oii -street Baptist Churi h.
During the interesting revival now 111 progress
at this church, there will be divine service and

Imkki'T Importations. ? We noticed at the
store of Messrs. Kegnault & Co. yesterday,
large rolls of oil cloth, of most beautiful pat- j
terns, of their own direct importation from
j the English manufacturers.
Atction Sai.ks Y kstkrkay. ? The auction sale !
I of dry goods, shoes, ,hats, stationery, Sic., by i
Messrs. l'aine \ Co. yesterday was well at- j
? tended: yet though bidding was brink, prices
? ruled generally low. *
E. H. Cook sold out 'the furniture, crockery,
? glass, cutlery, and fixtures, of the Franklin
Hotel. A large crowd attended. The-sales j
were rapid, and prices were at a fair average;
j very good for the times.
Keguault & Co. 's sale of furniture, whiskies,
and claret wines, was largely attended, and
the prices obtained were satisfactory, with a
slight advance on most articles, as compared
j with previous sales.
Heal estate for some time has not been in1
demand, and the few sales made are effected I
with great difficulty and at prices generally
far below the value of the property. We have
not known in the past twenty-five years so
favorable an opportunity for capitalists to
make investments at prices that will insure
, large profits in the near future as is now
presented in this city and in the couniit-H
I around Richmond.
Messrs. Harrison, Goddin & Apperson yes
terday sold two new brick stores on the east
line of Thirteenth street, between Main and
Cary. The first, situated on the corner of the
street and an alley, subject to a ground rent
of four hundred and fifty dollars per annum,
! was sold to A. 1>. Chock ley for two thousand
six hundred and thirty dollars. The other, a
smaller building adjoining, subject to agrouud
rent of three hundred dollars per annum, was
purchased by J. S. Kobertson.
James M. Taylor yesterday sold a small
house and lot on Jackson street, between First
and Hrook avenue, for oee thousand and
twenty five dollars And on the previous day,
a house on Broad street, above First, for six
thousand six hundred and ten dollars.
ArcTiox Sai.kn To- day.? Messrs. Grubbs Jt
Williams will sell at auction, on the premises,
at 4 o'clock, P. M., a brick dwelling on Frank
liu street, opposite the Masonic Hall.
