Sax Francisco, Dec. 'Ml The glories of Christmas arc over, tlit' clerk of tlie weather and Santa clans having had a private arrange ment with each other. Christmas day itself was as line a day as any one could possibly wish to see. And this is a very exceptional case I can assure you. While 1 write it is raining cats and dogs, and as the wind is S. E. we may look for a continuation of it. For holiday time, we have been, compar atively speaking, exempt from Un usual result of festivities in San Fran cisco, such as murders, suicides, as saults, and so on. Our sensational paper raised a hue and cry with re spect to an unfortunate man who was found in the Western Addition bleed ing to death from a hole in his side, but on inquiry it appeared he had, in a drunken frolic, attacked a ferocious dog and got the worst of it. The hood lums pave a great amount of trouble by their attacks on corner grocery stores. But take it all in all, it was a i|iiict time. A STRF.ET CAR SENSATION. A boa cicant, preparing for the cus tomary observance of Christmas, se lected a nice live turkey and carried his prize to a street car, stowing' it away under the seat. Of course he had to give way to some ladies who came in and insisted on sitting to gether where there was room for only one. This brought one of the ladies in front of the turkey, anil the passen gers who had seen the live stock packed away prepared themselves for the denoument which they knew would follow. And it came, The ladies were engaged in an earnest con versation, when one of them sprang up with an exclamation of fright anil threw herself upon the opposite seat. Seeing the red head of the turkey on the floor, her fright increased and she went into a faint, as she murmured "Something has bitten a piece out of my leg." She was revived by the whiff of a bad cigar in the mouth of a passenger on the rear platform, and restored to her former equanimity on being assured that the attack was from the national thanksgiving bird. liot'SES DIRT CHRAP. On Saturday last thirty-six frame buildings, situate at the corner ofS ut ter anil Dupont streets, were sold by auction, the land having been leased for the erection of a new market. These frame buildings, more like dry goods boxes than any thing else, are mostly occupied by those who delight in "wearing the ereen. The prices ob tained for the shanties ranged from two dollars to twenty dollars, and the whole thirty-six fetched just $290. Many of the'present occupants bought the houses that had so long covered them, under the pleasing impression that they would be allowed to remain in quiet possession and much forcible language was indulged in when the discovery was made that this would be impossible. One lady remarked to a by-stander who endeavored to ex plain the circumstance of the case to her: "Move me house is it? I'd like to see some of them touch this shanty; bedad me chjldcr were all born yer, and now that its mine and I've paid for it, l'*l break every bone in their body, so 1 would, if they were to move me house." Till: BUILDING BKASON. The prospects for the coming build ing season are brilliant in the extreme. Buildings that will cost in the aggre gate several millions of dollars are al ready referred to by the press. There is Sharon's new hotel, Peters' new market, The Mechanics Institute building, the Opera House, Michael Reese's block, Stanford's private dwelling house, besides many more private residences. Take it altogether the prospects arc in favor of the build ers making a regular harvest. i^jf•'■■/rHK NEW CITY HALL. A committee appointed from mem bers of the Legislature is now occu pied in enquiring into the manage ment of the affairs of San Francisco's elephant, the new City Hall. So far there has been great confusion of tes timony, and considerable disagree ment as to the cost of the building. The architect states one thing, the commissioners as nositively assert another. The cost of the building was originally fixed at $1,500,000, what its actual cost will be, none can toll It is proposed to run it up substantially for about two stories and then cover in temporarily until the city can afford to finish it in good style, thus render ing it an eyesore, instead of what it was first intended to be—an ornament to the city. THE NAIAD QUEEN. The largest audience that ha ever been packed within any place of amusement on this coast, witnessed the first representation of "The Naiad tiueen," at the California, on Christ mas night. I am at a loss to find terms of praise sufficient for the artists upon whom the task of presenting this .spectacle devolved. Nothing had been left undone, but it was presented even on the first night without any jar or flaw for adverse criticism. The facile brush of that master artist, W. T. Porter, the scenic painter ol the t heater was discernable in every scene. The fourth scene of the first act, rep* resenting the Grotto on the Rhine and the Naiad's Bath, was a beautiful pic ture; and in the last act where the castle Is entombed, the artist, in con junction with the machinist, applied every effect which art and mechani cal genius can command. The nature of the plot of the play enables the Los Angeles Daily Herald. management to introduce several side specialities which vary pleasingly with the array of gorgeous dresses and scenery. These specialities comprise Professor O'Rearilon on the 'Tumbler oricon;" Misses Sophie and Betty Renuneltberg, M'lle Gaugain and a corps de ballet; the Girard Brothers, contortionists and gymnast; cum wid th aliis. The whole affair must be seen to be appreciated. It is simply gorgeous in every respect. STOCKS. The excitement still continues in stocks. Ophir is the favorite; less than live months ago it could be bought at about $15, now it is selling close on 5.500. Savage too, in the same period has gone from $32 to Sl7">. and every other description of Comstock mine is participating in the rise. The brokers are full of business, and a board session lasts about three hours instead of about an hour or less as in slack times. AMUSEMENTS. I have already spoken of the great spectacle at the California which will certainly run for some time. At the Minstrels, George Knight a Dutch comedian has appeared, but as he Seems to be half Dutch and half Paddy, the result is far from satisfactory. Sonic boneless boys and some educa cated dogs, also have a place in the performances. At the Opera House there has been a split. Mr. and Mrs. Arnold's engagement has has come to a somewhat abrupt conclusion, whilst Miss Gallon and Mr. Kelleher are taking a muc'i needed rest. Ici on jiarle Francais and checkmate now till the bill, with Miss Lee and John Howson, as pnncipils. A foot race for $400 a side was an nounced but owibg to the rain has been postponed until a more favorable season. The contestants were Mc- Guire and Gilpin.
