CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
tuESDayZTT. .Tun ifio. is-4. Independent Movement in the West. The San Francisco Bulletin of the 11th instant commends in tho strong est terms the platforms adopted in Il linois and Indiana by the Independ ents, with one exception. It says: "But upon one point only do they make a mistake. They seem to favor an incontrovertible paper currency. Probably of all classes iv the country, the farmers ought to be the last to in dorse so dangerous a practice." Now, let us tuke a look at this question with a fanner's sagacity, and see if there is danger iv it. Editors should not arro gate to themselves all knowledge. Farmers as a general rule think as correctly as any other men. They view this currency question in a very different light to that in which it is seen by editors, merchants and bond holders, and in our opinion in a far superior business light. They say: Our country is deeply involve !, and all we have and all we can produce is mortgaged to pay the debt. The an nual installments must be met, or we will be sold out by the tax-collector. Now, if we came down to a metallic currency, there is not specie enough in the United states to pay the tax of one year. Bat if there was double the amount of specie In the country it would be impossible for us to have it so divided among us as to meet the de mands of the tax-collector. The paper currency is received by the tax-gath erers as readily as gold, and while there is over a half billion of paper in cin'tila tion in addition to all tbe specie we have, we can hardly make enough to pay our taxes. Aud the tax would not be any less if there was not a dol lar in currency in the country. With these facts before us, is it wise iv us to cry out for a reduction of currency ? What would be the result? The hold ers of United States bonds would soon order one grand sheriffs sale, and the American homes that are now owned by us would pass into other hands, and we would be reduced to tenants. We know the products of the farm feeds the world and must pay all Na tional debts, anil the more plenty we can have currency, the easier will it be for us to raise the means. We also know that if everything was brought down to a specie basis, a day's labor would be worth fifty cents; a cow which is now worth fifty dollars, would only be worth fifteen dollars; i a<- . l c ai.:..a„ ~..11..... juiiu mat nuvv StMis i<ji tuirij QOllftXS per acre would sell for ten. But with all this reduction our taxes would not be reduced a cent. If we were out of debt we would not suffer by a reduc tion of currency, for then all would fare alike, but as we are now situated the creditors would soon devour the debtors. We are not surprised that bondholders and California bankers wish to reduce the volume of currency. It is strictly a business transaction with them, and in the proportion they succeed just in that proportion do they increase their own wealth. We should not be surprised at any efforts they make to mould the public mind to suit their interest, and we were not surprised that the President vetoed the act of Congress, with such power behind the throne. But'we are sur prised at editors, traders and laboring men who advocate a theory that would ruin themselves and impover ish the country. This is the view that the fanners of the West took when they acted in Convention, and all the honest laboring men of the country are with them. If we are mistaken, we ask the editor of the Bulletin and all other editors to demonstrate to us how a reduction of the means to pay our debts, will facilitate the payment of those debts? The editor of the Bulletin says: "The farmers produce is sold abroad for specie and he loses in the exchange," etc. He knows as well as we do, that not one-tenth of American produce is exported—that the market is principally at home, and that it is the competition of the home market that keeps up the price of grain and other products. The»r great est argument is the nation's credit. We are not troubled on that score. The bondholders alone are anxious about that. These are the farmers views, and from a practical standpoint they appear sound. From a reliable source we learn that work will be commenced on the Lo> Angeles and Truxton Railroad aboui the first of next month, and the enter prise pushed forward as rapidly as pos sible. Arrangements for COfhmencing operations are now completed, and in a few days workmen will commence erecting houses down at tlie bay for the accommodation of the officers and laborers of the railroad. As soon as tho wharf is completed, tlie iron and ties for the track will be landed, and within the next six months the loco motive will be darting back and fortli between Los Angeles and Truxton. Salt Lake has a sensation. A sol dier went into town, got drunk and violated an ordinance, for which he was captured and lodged in jail. Next morni ok an officer, with a detachment of mounted men, went to tlie civil authorities of the City of Saints and demanded the release of the soldier. The demand was refused, and the troops dug a hole through the jail wall aud carried off the prisoner in triumph. The Mormon authorities offered no resistance. The act was an open defi ance of the civil municipal authority, and the question now is, what will Brigham Younu do about it ? Railroads vs. Cart Roads. Early in the present century a dis covery was made which turned old ideas upside down, and set the world in motion. It started looms into new action; it enhanced the value of land throughout the country; it set the farmer to producing, and brought his market virtually to his door; it created supplies which demanded exchanges; it made communities acquainted with each other, who had previously been comparative strangers, connect im; them with a commercial bond, which soon ripened into confidence ami friendship. Distances ceased to have tin effect upon commercial honesty, and exchanges became rapid and cer tain. The Unglc agent which worked this change was steam power as ap plied to permanent ways, ami used in opposition to horse power on ordinary roatN, and the discovery has long since been conceded to be a reality: that a ton of goods can be moved over a rail road for LJ cents per ton per mile at the rate of four hundred miles per day, while the cost of moving the same upon a common cart road was and is about twenty cents per ton per mile, aud this at a maximum rate of only twenty miles per day. The imme diate effect of this discovery was to cause a seeming commercial shrinkage of territory, a condensation of dis tances in localities where railways were at first introduced, which con densation has rapidly extended until we find that our continent is now read ily spanned in eight days, while In the year 1830 the same number of days freighting upon a cart road would have only netted a progress of one hundred and sixty miles, or thereabouts. It is evident that the introduction of this agent must materially affect internal trade as regards great centers. As this country becomes more compact in its communications, there will be a result ant centralization towards certain points which must control commerce. These points In the days of cart roads were necessarily numerous, ami in size proportioned to the business done and trade facilities required. Now the great centers are few in number, but stride onward to immense proportions, making themselves the great foci of exchanges and the clearing houses for a vast territory around them. The geographical position of Los Angeles indicates it as likely to become the great center of Southern California and Arizona. Backed by the immense mineral and wealth - producing re sources of her surrounding country, site will soon rival San Francisco, in the extent and value of her mining interests. In ortler to accomplish this glorious consummation, one tiling is yet required, and that is cheap and rapid communication with her back country, and a consequent shrinkage of time, condensation of territory and close connection of business interests. The realization of this is so closely connected with the prosperity of Los Angeles as to be becoming an impera tive want. Now is the time to move; delays are dangerous. The future capital of Southern California should never allow herself to be deprived of her legitimate trade by mote alert rivals. Stevenson's Regiment. From Fkancis D. CLARK of New- York city we have received a pam phlet entitled " IS4G —1874. A Roll of the .Survivors of tbe First Regiment of New York Volunteers, Commanded by Colonel Jonathan' D. Steven son, which served in L'ppcr and Lower California during the Mexican War and disbanded on tlie Pacific Coast in the Fall of 1818, and known to bo Liv ing January Ist, 1874; also, incidents pertaining to the Fleet which conveyed the Regiment to California, Officers known to be Deceased and record of deaths since January Ist, 1871." The work is compiled by Mr. CLARK, who was a member of Company I) of the famous Regiment. He has taken great pains to learn the locality of those of bis old comrades who have not. yet crossed the "dark river." Among the names of the survivors we find those of Moses W. Perry, Peter I HOMPBON and AUGUST AHLERS of C»mpany A, and — Walthers of Company X, set down as residents of Los Angeles. It is now Mr. Clauk's purpose to place a copy of the record in the bauds of eacli of his old com panions in arms still living, and he requests those who have failed to re ceive the work to address him at 1G Cortlandt street, New York. If either of the gentlemen named as a resident of this city will call on tlie editor ot ihe Herald, he will be pleased to pre sent him with the copy in his posses sion. The Chronicle says Local Option cannot be carried in San Francisco. When it becomes apparent that it will be carried the live paper will advocate the measure. The county hospital of San Fran cisco uses one thousand dollars worth of liquor'per month, or at least that is the amount the city is called upon to pay for.
