In of the allegation that the committee on ories is hostile to Indians and are sup il to favor tlie projects of tlie railroad tallies, the action of tlie Senate on the ion is looked for with deep interest. Tlie mtions are that the memorial will be sent ie judiciary committee by an emphatic irity, and also that tills action may fairly nislrued as a virtual defeat of the bill e referred to. A vote will probably be led to-morrow. ie Senate and Ilouse committee on In afl'airs will hold a joint meeting on ay, at tlie request of Secretary Schurz, lie purpose of hearing him in explanation ni advocacy of tlie agreement entered into the Ute Indians. iBklrs In Ban Francisco.

He further essed coudtience that none would occur. I'e is a rumor that Kearney is to be arrest '-uiglit for his remarks at tlie meeting last Ktamey'i Arrest. [x Francisco, March 11.—The arrest of hiey was accomplished very quietly, and Ie it lias caused a great deal of comment, occasioned no excitement or demonstra ] of any kind. Public opinion seems to Bvided as to the wisdom of tlie movement., I there is much expression to tlie effect lit will amount to uottimg, because of the Tssibility of obtaining Ids conviction, /view is mainly baaed on the fact that tlie who lias the drawing of jurors, is a Pttal ami political friend id' Kearney, and I elected on the Workingmen's ticket, as labo tlie district attorney. The witness " case is a member of tlie police force, has iM-en attending, in disguise, tlie pittas and street demonstrations of tlie kiiigineii amt taking noes. There are ly w lio think that tlie citizen's protective ftt will le uble to exeic'sea n.o al pres that will result in tlie conviction of fney, and that the policy of making ar ' of any persou indulging in incendiary Wage, if vigorously pursued, will result lie observance of tlie letter ami spirit id law.

New York, March 10 —The Herald says: The truth is that the preparations for putting down those disturbers are so efficient, and the order-loving citizens of San Francisco are so determined, that the intending rioters are cowed ami forced by their fears to disavow their Incendiary threats. Their cowardice makes them pose in tlie ridiculous attitude of martyrs ami injured supporters of law anil order. " I vouch to the world for them," says virtuous Kallöch, " that they will so con tinue." Since they have become so subdued by their fears, they contemplate nothin" more horrible than to try tlieir political luck a-ain in the next election. We are justified in con cluding that the crisis is past, and that there will be no disturbance of peace in San Fran cisco. There will continue to be a great deal of swagger and bravado, for tlie dema gogues know that speech is free in this coun try so long as it does not lead to violent action. No doubt some means will be found through tlie courts or otherwise, to annul the action of the Hoard of Health declaring Chinatown a nuisance. There are nearly two weeks belore the date fixed for abating the nuisance, and tlie resources of the lavr must bo equal to such occasion. We are glad that tlie trouble is likely to end without resort to extreme measures. 1 lie rimes says : Kalloch, who was elected by tlie men of the Sand lots, vehemently de clares that no violence is to be feared from those who are usually classed as Kearneyites ami that, the vague insinuations and open charges contai noil in tlie address of the Citi zens Protective Union are false and slander 01l f' at ,<! ' SS11U is between tlie chief munici pal officer of San Francisco and tlie peaceful citizens. Kalloch's sympathies are avowedly with tlie creatures who counsel tlie hanging of prominent business men and tlie institu tion ot a reign of lynch law. This compli cates the difficulties of the situation. It increases the risk of violent collision. A Femnle fool. New York, March 11.—The llerald says : Mrs. Sargtnt, in an intrrview with a reporter yesterday, said : " 1 inten t shortly to com mence a series of anti-Kearney lectures in New York. I will presc it the subject in its tine light. 1'lie proceeds of these lectures will lie turned into a general fund for the purpose of assisting tlie Chinese to emigrate from San Francisco to New York. It will be an easy matter to secure special rates and pay fares of 100 or 200 at a time, as the case may be. Of course when tlie present limited exodus from California is accelerated by tlie inducements which New York shall offer the Mongolians will fairly swarm here.' Tlieir ncatneis ami economy will soon win them tav-To in the cultured East and tlie time is not far off' when New Fork manufacturers will lie glad to send to China direct for re cruits to their workshops. Their value as workmen in trades is increased by tlieir dis like to strikes, and employers of Chinamen are never deserted at critical times. 1 intend, with tlie assistance of my friends, to see what can lie done with tlie manufacturers of this city in this respect." Till- Vigilante*. New York, March 11.—The Tribune says: Tlie Citizen's Protective Union, to all intents and purposes, is a vigilance committee. That is what they have formed, but there is reason to hoiie that a repetition of tlie summary processes of 1856 will not now be thought necessary. Formerly tlie courts and nearly all the municipal officers were not in sympathy with tlie criminal class. At present the May or and Sliei iff side witli the mob, but tlie Chief of Police docs not. There is no com plaint of tlie judges or public prosecutors and there is a loyal militia under tlie orders of a respectable Governor. These are agencies with which tlie Citizen's Committee can ami will co-operate. I'oltllenl Note». New Yonk, March 11.—The Times' Colum bus, Ohio, special says : Within the last few days it lias become very evident that Tilden lias tapped a new liariel and gone briskly to work making arrangements for securing tlie support of tliis Stan- at Cincinnati. Tlie Sun's Washington special recites the provisions ot Goode's Chinese bill, reported favorably in the Ilouse yesterday, and says : There is little doubt of its parsage by tlie House. Tlie represeulatives of tlie far Wes tern Slates are doing all in tlieir power to secure votes for tlie bill and the BLaine party in tlie ilouse will support the measure for the political benefit tliey hope will result to their chieftain in consequence among the votera on the Pacific Slope. Capital Note«. Chicago, Mardi 11.—The Inter-Ocean's Washington special says : About the House proceedings to-day tlie Democrats were in a badly demoralized condition all through the session. Several members on that side want to sjieak or offer amendments to tlie political assessment bill, ami joined tlie Republicans in an effort to secure more time, while others went so far as to vote for tabling tlie wliole subject. Hostetler, Democrat, of Indiana, who for some inscrutable reason was made by Speaker Randall chairman of the committee on civil service reform, and so lias the bill in cliarge, is a man of no force or standing, and his liill is recognized, even on his own side of tlie House, as an unmitigated humbug. At the extra session of Congress tlie bill to extend the time lor tlie completion of tlie Nortlieiu Pacific railway was referred to the sub-committee of the House committee oil railroads, consisting of Ellis, Chalmers, Wil ber, Newberry and Harinor. This committee lias been idle until to-day, when it was called together, and Ellis submitted some of the report, which took strong grounds against tlie passage of tlie bill on the ground that the Northern Pacific had forfeited all its claims to about 66,000,000 acres of land, and recom mended that it he either opened forseltieiuent or transferred to some other company. There were indications that the views of Ellis were concurred in by Chalmers and Wilber, but they were dissented from by Newberry and Uarmor. The reading of tlie report was not completed, and no action was taken. It is understood that the Union and Central Pa cific interests have been quietly working against this bill while the Northern Pacific people have been asleep, tlie object of tlie former being double; first, to prevent tlie competition tnat will come from tlie coinple lion of tlie Northern Pacific ; and second, to secure for what is known as tlie Walla Walla route lands on tlie Pacific Slope heretofore granted io tlie Northern Pacific. ° xi, e Democrats are lighting shy of Willets, of Michigan, who lias loaded himself with facts oil Hosteller's hill which will likely I damage them as much as his previous efforts.

Cheer followed cheer as this was seconded and adopted by acclamation. Tlie Tribune's special from St. Louis says that tlie tirant men had a victory in the Missouri State com mittee in fixing tlie date for the Republican convention. 4lie Tribune in its editorial says: Patience with Denis Kearney lias ceased to he a virtue on tlie part of tlie decent people of San Fran cisco, and 1 1 us Sand Lot ieuiagogue was arrested yesterday on tlie charge of misde meanor based on his violent harangue, it is to lie hoped, on tlie hearing of tlie case, Denis will be retired to tlie privacy of an apartment in tlie San Francisco jail. Eads' Ship Railway—Gotham Gossip. New York, Mardi 12.—Captain Eads now here assured tlie Tribune reporter yesterday he is confident of carrying through his ship railway and thinks Lesseps' canal project is dead. Mr. G. W. Stuart, of Boston, lectured here before tlie Labor Lyceum last night oil tlie impending crisis of our civilization in which lie said tlie true Socialist should oppose tlie greenback party and men like Kearney. The Herald s San Francisco special says re garding tlie arrest of Kearney, that ail inter ested in Sau Francisco may rest assured that tlie beginning of the end lias come. The Herald's Washington special says that. Tilden lias made up his mind that a large part of tlie South will be equally hostile to him or his candidate and it is admitted that if he does not run himself lie means to name the man. He lias tlie reform report here and says lie lias made up liis mind to do without the solid South, and holds that Dennis can carry northern States enough to make up the deficiency. It is remarked by tlie Tilden men that to carry California, Ore gon, Ohio and Wisconsin it would give them forty-one iu exchange for the southern Stales that may be surrendered. They count of course on New York, Connecticut, New Jer sey and Indiana being Democratic as before. Nhem»n's Manifesto. Chicago, March 12.—Tlie following letter received by M. L. Scudder of this city, ex plains itself: Wasiiingnon, March 10, 1880. Mi/ Dear Sir X our letter of the 7th i list, in which you express your strong dissent to my retiring from the Presidential race, is re ceived. I never for a moment have contem plated sucli a course and the rumor you speak of was no doubt promptly denied. The first public mention of my candidacy was in the inferrence drawn from my letter to Hon. Mr. Ilaskiu, of New York, in which 1 stated what I would seek to do in ease of my nomination and election. Since that time 1 have been considered by the public as a candidate, and have so regarded myself with the purpose neither to press any one to support me nor to decline such friendly aid as is offered me. This position I intend to occupy to tlie end. I don't think it necessary for me to belittle or arraign General Grant, Senator Blaine or any one else, nor will 1 use my official posi tion to promote my candidacy. Very truly yours, (Signed) John Sherman. Cwmeron Tlie K« Chicago, Mardi 12.—The Inter-Ocean's Washington special says : Senator Cameron expresses much annoyance at tlie pai-agra/tlis respecting his position. He said this evening that he was in favor of Grant's nomination for the Presidency, and liad no second choice. He is confident that Grant would be nomi nated on tlie first ballot, ami lie believed the contest would be practically- settled ion; before tlie convention met at Chicago. Maine and Ohio might cast complimentary votes for their favorite son, but enough States would go tliere instructed for Grant to make tlie contest useless. He anticipated that tlie first ballot would carry nearly all the States lor Grant. The Inter-Ocesin's Washington special says of Schurz' agreement with the Utes and the proposed hill on the subject, that the delega tions are not at all satisfied with this arrange ment. Tliey particularly object to the location that has been selected, which they say is in tlie heart of the mineral regions of Colorado. Senator Teller freely expresses himself. He says the terms proposed in Secretary Schurz' bill are so liberal that, such legislation will be merely inducements offered to other tribes to massacre tlieir agent ami his employés, ravish their wives and daughters, ami burn the buildings of tlie agency, for, under the terms tlie secretary had suggested, the Utes will be better oil' than they were before, while the citizens of Colorado and the government will sutler all the disadvan tages of the change. Teller thinks Ouray is a sharper man than Schurz, for every actual and possible advantage .of this new arrange ment is on the side of the Indians. Instead of being punished for tlieir crime they have committed, Senator Teller says the Utes are now rewarded, and if this arrangement is consummated by act of Congress it will merely encourage such outbreaks among the Indians as occurred last fall. W. I'. Victory. St. Joseph, Mo., March 12__The W. U. Telegraph Company this morning secured the restoration ami lull possession of its lines on the St. Joe & Western Railroad.

Washington, March 12. —The House committee on judiciary took up the subject of trade marks at tlieir meeting this morning and ordered tl.e bill to be reported to the House, which will carry out the treaty stipu lations with foreign countries on the subject of trade marks. The Senate and House committees on Indian affairs held a joint, meeting to-day for the the purpose of hearing Secretary ■Schurz in explanation of the details of tlie agreement which lie entered into with tlie Ute Indians of Colorado, subject to its ratifi cation by Congress. Tlie Secretary, after explaining the features of the agreement and setting forth its advantages from various points, devised and drafted a bill to carry it into effect, which the committee will consider at a future meeting. The bill proposes to appropriate in perpetuity $50,000 as interest at four per cent, per annum upon the amount of $1,250,000, stipulated as a consideration forthe relinquishment by the Utes of their reservation, and also to continue to appropri ate the present annuity of $25,000 per year, the $75,000 thus provided for each year to be divided among tlie Utes per capita. Tlie bill forther proposes to appropriate $500 a year for distribution among tlie most deserving of the Utes, and $1,000 per annum to continue Ouray's present annuity for 1:1 years from the present time. It is also proposed to appro priate $65,000 for tlie purchase of agricultural implements, the erection, of saw ami grist mills and the construction of about 1,000 houses for the Utes in their new locations. Other sections of the bill provide the neces sary authority for al loti ng lands to the Indians in severalty, and for the restoration of the great hulk of their present reservation to the public domain.

Florenck, Ala.. Maral, 12.-Jo'.. i, Mayfield I BqrABE LOCATIONS. The DlMulv»nl»tm of the Proposed Hew Law in Relation to the Location of Mine*. [Virginia Chronicle.) The abolition of tlie present mining law. and tlie substitution of a "square location" system, as proposed by the Public Land Com mission, is a radical change which should not be hastily made by Congress. The principal argument used against tlie present law is that it leads to much litigation, but tlie law lias been already settled by judi cial decisions on many important points, aud if it wore amended so that stricter regulations were prescribed for tlie recording of an accu rate survey and marking prominently tlie boundaries of claims on the ground, tlie bulk of tlie present litigation would be avoided. Tlie square location selieir", so far as de veloped, proposes to give the discoverer of a mineral deposit the right to 1,500 feet by 1,500 feet of surface ground, and tlie exclu sive right to ail mineral found diretiy under neath such surface ground to the center of the earth. This would be about 52 acres of sur face ground, or two and a half times the amount allowed to a locator under the pres ent law. Even this excessive width—which would enable a few individuals to monopo lize a wliole miniii;; district—would only al low a vein which dips the same as tlie Corn stock to be worked to a depth of about 1,500 feet before it would pass beyond the lines of the location. Such a law would work injur iously to tlie interests of deep mining, such as prevails on the Comstock, and which in the near future will prevail in all other districts having fissure veins. The present mining law permits a locator to »ecure tlie government title to a mineral bearing ledge, although lie may not have found an ore body of industrial value—only assays or good indications ; and under this law tlie Utah, the Bullion, the Scorpion, the Capital, the Sullivan, and many other claims, can secure a United States patent. And no injustice is thereby done to any one, because eacli patentee is only allowed to work veins the apexes of winch fall within tlie lines of liis location. He is not allowed to sink through his own ledge of uncertain value, and work upon a valuable vein known to extend under liis claim, hut under a square location lie would be allowed to do this. It may be said that these evils would be avoided by granting a patent only in a case where a body of milling ore is discovered. This would leave such claims as the Bullion and Utah without any tecure title, and Stil! would not cover tlie cast of the St. Louis and Vivian. Both of these claims have found large deposits of milling ore near the surface; both are entitled to patents under any law that can possibly be framed. Under the present law tlie claims do not conflict, being upon different locations ; but as the Vivian surface location would, under the square location rule, extend over tlie part of the vein at present worked by tlie St. Louis com pany, tlie Vivian would now be entitled to tlie St. Louis ledge as well as the Vivian ledge. The above objections would apply ' when the square location business comes up 1 for debate. Meantime tlie people of Nevada I should take steps to make their voices heard. He therefore went to work and learned a trade as machinist. While he was at liis work liis assoeiat-s cut him and refused to have anything to do with him. The young ladies, with even greater force in districts where several ledges lie near together, although dis tinct and separate, like Austin or Bodie. What constitutes a ledge, for tlie purpose of getting a United States paient, is now a mooted question, though of not much practi cal importance under the present law ; but under a square location system it would become a point of vital importance ami open wide tlie door to endless liiigation. This is no mete theoretical objection ; it is confirmed by practical experience under the Spanish law, which i llows square locations. After a milling company liad courageously ventured their means ami demonstrated the value of tlie lode, it would be manifest injus tice to allow another company to sink a shaft just in front of them and rob them of the further fruits of their enterprise. It would be a terrible damper on mining development; yet a square location law would surely encourage just this tiling. It would be about as reasonable to apply tlie common law of Coke ami Littleton to all the real estate transactions of our day as to apply it to mining under the changed condi tions and circumstances of tliis coast, it might do for tlie firat thousand feet in depth, but now that we are able by improved ma chinery to reach tlie depth of 4,000 or 5,000, nothing can reach tlie requirements of tlie case so well as tlie system of indigenous growth embodied in our present law. Another remarkable recommendation of tlie Public Land Commission is that which pro poses that tlie adjudication of contested mining cases be taken from the learned amt experienced judges of our local courts, and from judges acquainted with the nature of tlie matter in controversy, and given to young clerks (at a salary of $125 per month) in tlie land office at Washington—as is now the practice witli regard fo agricultural entries. Then tlie unfortunate miner would experience more than ever the blessings of delays, enor mous traveling expenses, fraud and bribery, in order that tlie principles of a "strong cen tral government " might lie applied to tliis ai well as oilier departments of tlie adminis tration. We shall await witli great interest the ac tion of our Congressmen—Senators Jones and Sharon and Representative Daggett— Another ileal Komnnce. Tlie following story lias come to tlie hear ing of the Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution : Many years ago there wis a young fellow named Bigelow sent by liis father to Yale college, lhe father was very rich, and tlie | youngster lived in grand style at tlie univer ! slt > - Suddenly tlie old gentleman broke and 1 ' lal * to withdraw liis son from college. Tiie "°y. however, felt tlie necessity of an eduea I lion ' aml Jetern,ined to have 0l,e a "- vllow - supposed sin* would cut him as all tlie rest hail done. She smiled pleasantly, addressed him as "Tom," and insisted that in* should cal) aud see lier as lie liait always done. Site said, "There is no change in you as far as 1 am concerned " The years rolled on. The young work-boy became immensely wealthy, and is now tlie mayor ot New Haven, with an income of $106,000 a year, and owner of a factory in which fifteen hundred men ami women are employed. Tiie young girl grew to woman hood and married. Her husband burrowed a large sum id' money from Mr. Bigelow, ami died before lie bail paid it, leaving liis family with but little property. Mr. Bigelow sent lier, witli iiis condolence, a receipted note for her husband's indebtedness; anil now tiie son ot Bigelow, tlie millionaire, is going to marry tlie daughter of tlie one woman who was faithful and true to tlie young work-boy at ei,liege."
