same time does away with a grievous
evil.

THE QUEEN CITY.
An Interesting Letter From the Her.
aid's Npeclal Correspondent —
Wsather— Money— Law - Religion -
Fniliion Amusement* Mentations
oftheDaynnd Oenerat Points of
Interest.
Editor Herald:—San Francisco
the metropolis of the State, the Queen
of the Pacific, sits among her sand
hills in glory and power, serene and
happy. The weather, that never-fail
ing subject for comment, is pleasant
and genial; the sun shines forth glori
ously.evidently trying to make amends
for dereliction of duty in the past,
when he wasn't to be seen for days to
gether. The winds are hushed and
silent, no longer playing hide-and-seek
with the skirts of the ladies. The
fogs have gone—whither no one can
tell, but certain it is, that they will
return in the fullness of time, to fold
us once more in their soft but delusive
embrace, and sending us to the grate
for comfort, and to whisky straight
for consolation. Discomfort we can
endure; consolation we must have.
How long we are to bo favored with
this fine weather, is a problem which
requires time for its solution; it may
continue for days, perhaps for weeks
or even months, but alas ! may van
ish before to-morrow morning. Put
not your faith in San Francisco
weather.for it is more changeable than
the stock market, more fickle than the
mind of women.
MONEY
Is plentiful and cheaper than it has
been for years. As a consequence of
this low rate of interest, the number
of buildings both for dwelling and
business purposes in process of con
struction, is unprecedentedly large.
There is a constant and increasing de
mand for dwellings, small houses of
eight or ten rooms being generally
preferred, proprietors experiencing no
difficulty whatever in renting their
houses, as soon as completed, to desir
able tenants. Business structures now
being erected are represented by the
Palace Hotel, to be one of the largest
and finest hotels in the United States;
the Government building, corner of
Washington and Sansome streets, and
various others, although buildings
of minor importance. .
A HEAVY LAW SUIT
Has been commenced by Michael
Reese, one of the moneyed men of the
city and well known as defendant in a
breach of promise case a few years
ago, against the California Pacific
Railroad Company, and several prom
inent business men of the State,
among them that prince of bankers,
Milton S. Latham, on account of cer
tain alleged fraudulent transactions
whereby the plaintifTin common with
other stockholders of the company
were swindled out of the comfortable
little sum of seven million dollars.
Latham has thought it necessary to
publish a card for the purpose of vin
dicating his integrity, aud threatens
to carry the war into the enemy's
camp and to make things lively gen
erally. It is broadly hinted that Reese
is tiie only nominal plaintiff, being
used by the Central Pacific Railroad
Company as a convenient cats-paw to
draw the chestnuts from the fire.
Whether this be true or not, it is evi
dent that there Is something rotten in
Denmark, and that there is rascality
somewhere, but just where the burden
is to bo laid may be difficult to deter
mine. The case offers a rich field for
gentlemen of the legal profession to
exercise their learning and ability up
on; and should it go to trial, develop
ments may be expected rather start
ling in their nature.
THE NEWEST THING IN RELIGIOUS
CIRCLES
Is the Independent movement, lately
evolved with Dr. Carpenter at its
head, which, at least, possesses the
merit of liberality; as may be seen
from the following rather startling
proposition taken from the " Articles
of Confederation:" "This society
shall not be identified with any other
sect or denomination, nor be so rep
resented or regarded, but while each
individual shall be at liberty to retain
his own religious opinions, the minis
ter in charge shall be left entirely un
trammeled in his pulpit utterances."
Here, at least, all may meet in one
common brotherhood of love; the Jew
and the Gentile, the Catholic and the
Protestant, may all clasp hands under
one minister, in one church organiza
tion, but with creeds innumerable.
This curious anomaly is to be man
aged by thirteen male and a like num
ber of female managers. Dr. Carpen
ter is a well-known divine, heretofore
of the Presbyterian faith, and is re
garded as one of the ablest minds of
the city. He is a man of broad cul
ture, a profound thinker, and cogent
reasoner; one who possesses original
ideas with strength of character suffi
cient to maintain them. This new
movement will be watched with in
terest by the intelligent members of
all classes, Avhether associated with
any church or standing aloof from all
such organizations.
FASHION NOTES.
The latest freak of fashion in the
way of bonnets, is, paradoxical as it
may appear, a hat—and, shades of our
grandmother!—a man's hat; oh, hor
ror! The wonderful transformation
which changes a masculine " beaver"
into oue of the feminine persuasion is
all brought about by a single feather.
Oh, the power of a feather! We shall
never say light as a feather, again; it
has more weight with the feminine
mind than gold or silver; gold and
silver she can dispense with, as they
are but dross, but a feather in her hat!
all, she must have a feather —it is per
fectly heavenly. Imagine a dowager,
fat and forty, sailing along with a
" burnside" perched upon the attic of
her chignon, the observed of all ob
servers, she wouldn't trade with the
angel Gabriel; no, not even if he
should offer her his trump in the bar
gain. The fair ones have commencod
an attack upon that which is dear to
the soul of man; they have entered
the citadel; they have captured the
crowing glory of man—his hat. They
are welcome to what is left in the way
of distinguishing dress, boots, bifur
cated garments and all; the bitter
ness of death is passed, we can stand
anything now.
AMUSEMENTS, ETC.
Lotta is playing at the California,
to good houses; to be succeeded next
week by the Yokes Family. The
Black Crook is drawing immensely at
Maguire's, and will run until further
notice, or until the patrons of its be
wildering dances, gorgeous scenery,
and wonderful wealth of legs—a corn
hi nation of attractions which makes
the glory of the piece—for the man
agement will scarcely be so blind as to
withdraw it in the midst of its popu
larity.
A series of concerts has been insti
tuted here which offer good| music by
first-class artists, at rates which meet
with popular appreciation, and have
proved, I believe, an entire success. If
there is one thing which distinguishes
the San Franciscans from their
brothers elsewhere, it- is the desire to
get their moneys worth whenever
they invest, and nowhere Is this dis
position more noticeable than in the
patronage of that which partakes of
the eesthetical as music 1 and painting.
The Mechanics' Institute Fair opens
to the public on the 18th. This prom
ises fair to be one of the most success
ful exhibitions, of its kind, ever held
in this city. The building erected es
pecially for the purpose, at a cost of
seventy thousand dollars, is something
almost stupendous in its proportions,
being five hundred and forty feet in
length by two hundred in width, and
in proportion, and is well arranged in
ternally for the convenience of exhib
itors and pleasure of visitors. During
its continuance, the Fair will doubt
less be one of the most popular places
of resort in the city. Spooney couples
can here promenade, drink soda-water
and breathe sweet nonsense, while
listening to the music to their heart's
content. Oh, who wouldn't be young,
and foolish, and spooney.

San Francisco, Aug. 15th, 1874.
The Illustrated Press.
We take the following from a San
Diego exchange, as illustrative of the
progress of the Press enterprise In
that place, and also a concise state
ment of Mr. Johnson's plan of opera
tions as thus far designated: The com
mittee appointed to solicit sub
scriptions for Mr. Johnson's South
ern California Illustrated Press enter
prise, report quite favorably on their
work so far. More than half the sum
required to fully represent San Diego
county is already raised without any
effort on the part of the committee.
There is not the slightest doubt but
that Mr. Johnson's scheme to adver
tise the counties comprising the South
ern portion of the State is feasible.
Besides publishing from time to time
lull descriptive account, with illustra
tions, of the many points of interest
in San Diego and other counties. Mr.
Johnson has conceived the idea of get
ting up a grand panorama of this
country, in which several hundred
scenes will be spread upon canvas on
a large scale. This completed he will
start for Europe on a lecturing tour.
His principal field of operations will
be England, Scotland, Ireland and
Wales, afterwards on the continent.
The plan of lecturing, as wo under
stand it, is to exhibit the panoramic
scenes and describe in a thoroughly
practical manner the advantages of
the country in an agricultural, cli
matic, stock-raising, and viniculture
point of view. The tourist, whether
seeking health or pleasure, or in the
pursuit of scientific knowledge, will
also receive a fair share of Mr. John
son's attention.
Last evening, a jolly disciple of Bac
chus, who had been rollicking around
among the cheap groceries of Alameda
street, strolled into Commercial street
and there laid down. He was a
stranger. He evidently had not been
in a city of the size of Los Angeles for
years, and therefore
"Wrapped himself into oblivion
And laid down in pleasant dreams,"
In the street. But some hoodlum boys
watching the progress of our inebriate
friend went for all he was worth; but
a friend who had missed him, seeing
the danger, got a policeman, who
kindly taking pity upon his unpro
tected situation, kindly sent him upon
a dray to the care of Mr. Clancy. If
the boys had known how much money
he had upon his person, they would
have hurried their operations and en
joyed a trip to Santa Monica for a
month..
An innocent with his Dulcinea pre
sented himself before Justice Gray
yesterday, and wanted to be married.
He had no license, but was willing to
dispense with that part of the pro
ceeding, and would be willing even to
pay the Judge twenty dollars if he
would tie the knot. The facts in the
case were that the said innocent's
young lady was too young toallowthe
issuance of the required license with
out her parents' or guardian's consent,
and so the nuptials were per force post
poned for several years. "And the
young man went away sorrowing."

PIPIFAX.
This remarkable curative herbal
preparation Is entirely unlike and greatly
superior to any other recuperant ever dig

It strengthens the living vital nervauric
principle, and gives energy to the muscles,
nerves, filaments, membranes, and all tissues
of the internal organs.
PIPIFAX-Keeps the skin in a supple
condition; the cuticle pliant; the pores open;
and brings the blood to the surface; thereby
enabling the system to counteract these bane
ful atmospheric influences.
PIPIFAX—Passes through the blood, car
ries off by presplration and other excretions
the effete and Injurious materials of the body.
It Is soothing, alterative and deferatlve. Used
methodically and rationally, aided by suita
ble diet, It produces most Important changes
in the system, contributing to the reconstruc
tion of tissues, and removes vitiated matter
which has become not only useless but inju
