CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
FRIDAY- SEPT. 3, 1874. Some of Professor Carr's friends are mentioning his name in connec tion witli the candidacy for Governor. The story that Charlie Cbockkk has a music-box that contains a whole band and plays forty tunes, is said to mean the Sacramento Record news paper, which belongs to the Railroad Company and plays any tune the managers direct. The disposition of the Pickett contempt case is the only prompt ac tion noticeable in the proceedings of the Supreme Court during the last four years. If poor Pickett's had been a land case, he might have rested in Justice Crockett's chair for two or three Summers. In Livermore Valley the Grangers and the Central Pacific Railroad Com pany are having trouble. The Central Pacific people refuse to give a side track to the Granger Warehouse, and the farmers propose to build a narrow gauge road to deep water. It is stated that the railroad is influenced by the old wheat ring of San Francisco. In the light of the fact that the Plymouth resolutions declare Beech er'B Innocence and "establish, to the perfect satisfaction of this church, his entire innocence and absolute personal purity with respect to all charges now or hereafter made against him by Theodore Tilton," we do not see the use of further efforts on the part of Moulton and others. That "here after" covers a great deal of ground. Mr. Philip Arnold, the gentle man who put up the great diamond swindle, has been arrested at his home in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, and is now in jail. He will be brought to this State for trial. Arnold was not alone in the great speculation. He had confederates among some of San Francisco's wealthy men, and if tlie matter is ever thoroughly sifted, we shall have developments that will not add to the credit or reputation of cer tain parties. About the Alden manufactured raisin the San Francisco Call says: "those who have visited the. Fair and examined the specimens of raisin curing by the Alden process, cannot but be struck with the luscious and attractive appearance of the fruit. No imported article bears any compari son with them, for size, beauty and excellence of preservation. They are also far superior in flavor; thus dem onstrating that in this department, as In most others, California may stand pre-eminent." The Los Angeles grape will make, the finest of raisins cured by this process. Preserved Meats. Experiments have recently been made on meats with the Allien Evap orator, aud the result is that the flesh is preserved without the use of salt. A gentleman writes us from San Fran cisco that he had just eateu a mutton chop which had been subjected to the evaporating process several months ago, and that it was asfresli and sweet as if killed the day before. If meats can be so preserved by this process that they will keep sweet for years, we may anticipate an early and radical change in the mode of preparing the food for sea voyages. A fresh beef steak or mutton-chop after one has been at sea several months, is quite a luxury. The exhibition of meats pre served by the Alden process at the Mechanics' Fair, now progressing in San Francisco, attracts a great deal of attention. The company have also an extensive and splendid display of their dried fruits, all of which is pro nounced by good judges to be superior in every respect to fruit dried by any other process. Grant and his Journals. If President Grant entertains thoughts of re-election, the opposition to the scheme so generally expressed by the journals of his party ought to induce him to abandon the project. A large number of them, perhaps the greater number, would yield to party pressure and beneath the lash of the party whip advocate his re-election, if once tlie nominee of the Republican party, but until he has received the nomination or given evidence that he will receive it he mu9t work against the influence of his party organs. We have from time to time noticed para graphs in the columns of the Evening Express of this city condemnatory of the Administration, but an editorial in Wednesday's issue takes decided ground against the third term propo sition aud sustains the statement made iv the Hekald of last week that the reports of Ku-Klux outrages in the South, with which we are being re galed just now, are manufactured in the North for political effect. The Express states the case in the fol clear and forcible manner. If the reasoning of 1870 was correct, and Qrant was elected because It was believed he would be the centre of a strong Government which would soon put an end l o the radical ou - rages in the South, the reasoning of 1874 would be, Id the light of facts, that he failed to realize the promise, aud Is therefore not the proper man to administer the affairs ofthe nation for anolher, and an extraordinary term under our Presidential usage, If there is a stronger argument against renewing Grant's lease of power than the still unsettled and lawless condition of the South, we do not know It. IT our esteemed contemporary should "pe ter out," and take its place on the dusty shelf where repose so many smart but defunct newspapers, It could uot be said that it died of modesty.— Expreat. "Died of its own smartness," will never be written on the urn of our es teemed contemporary. Go Slow. Bayle, explaining tile difference between testimony nnd argument, uses this laconic simile: "Testimony is like the shot of a long-bow, which owes Its efficacy to the force of the shooter; argument is like the shot of a cross-bow, equally forci ble whether discharged by a dwarf or ■ giant." The simile is very beautiful and to our ancestors very truthful. The world did not move so fast in the days of our fathers, and they had time to weigh the sayings and arguments that were presented—were, in fact, a considerate people. Every subject and argument was duly weighed, and all that was good was received nnd stored away for Use, These old men were never in a hurry; they walked deliberately; they rode slow, and al ways arrived at their destination indue time. They had time enough for every business of life. Things have changed since their day. Time is what we most need now. When we walk, we run; when we travel, it is by steam; we talk by electricity, and we eat and sleep by the tick of the clock. We are tired, but have no time to rest. The world is on a race, and we are left be hind if we stop to think. We have no time to consider the merit of sentence or essay. The question is, " Who wrote it ?" or, " Who said it V If he is a great man and in the habit of saying smart things, "It is elegant — the very thing," and we repeat it like parrots, no time to consider whether there is real merit or not. "I am ou a race, and I have no time to do more than say and do things like other folks; I must keep up that's all." This is the language of every man and woman of this age. Tlie result is, we never have an object more noble, than to think, speak, and act like some body else. Making apes of ourselves by cultivating an imitative spirit, thus burying our manhood and bring ing intellectual dyspepsy upon us. The simile of Bayle is all right but not applicable to this age; 'tis.position that gives force to argument as well as testimony, in these days. The wisest sayings of a man In humble position are never noticed, while the most common-place sayings of one in elevated circumstances are repeated a thousand times. This mania for aping seems to have crept upon the world as insiduously as the noon day pestilence, and all classes are suffering alike: it is attrib utable alone to this race after wealth and position. The old and middle aged cannot be benefited by any ar guments we can offer, but we would urge upon the youth of our land to "go slow;" stop to think, take time and weigh every subject that comes up, and if you get the habit upon you of considering before you act your life will not be in vain. HIS NAME WAS BENNETT. Tlie First Dug ol Gold Must Taken into San Francisco. The respective claims of Sutter and Marshall, in relation to the discovery of gold In California, havo been re cently very freely canvassed by the press of the State. While their titles to fame are familiar to the public, it may now be interesting to know something of the man who startled the people of Verba Buena early one Summer morning twenty-eight years ago by bringing into that town the first bag of gold dust. For the past eighteen years there has resided in Santa Cruz a venerable capitalist in Mr. John H. Brown. All the old pi oneers know him well. He was one of the earliest settlers in Sau Fran cisco, arriving there in 1840, and for many years was well-known as the proprietor of the Port smouth House, and subsequently of the Parker House. From him the following statement in regard to the first gold brought into San Francisco has been obtained: Soon after his arrival he opened a hotel, naming it Brown's Hotel—af terwards changed to City Hotel. He kept the place as a resort for the Amer icans. Among his guests was George McDougall—well known to old Cali fomians. Mr. McDougall was then one of tlie prominent business men of the place. In the Summer of 1847, a stranger came into the hotel, and after extend ing the courtesies of the day—taking a drink—he inquired of Mr. Brown if he could direct him to some person who had $1,000 in coin—a heavy sum in those days—to loan or invest in something which would be immense. Mr. Brown introduced the stranger, whose name turned out te be Bennett, to George McDougall. Mr. Bennett said that he wanted §1,000 to invest in blankets to trade with the Indians, and as collateral, exhibited two small bags, which he declared was gold. Both Brown and McDougall looked at Bennett in astonishment. McDou gall at last broke out with: " Get out of here! Do you suppose I'm a fool ?" Bennett left, but remarked to Brown as he was leaving: " Well, you'll find out one of these days." In the Fall of the year following Mr. Bennett came back to San Fran cisco and exhibited to Mr. Brown 300 pounds of gold dust, stating that after his interview with McDougall he went to Monterey to try and get either tlie money or the blankets from Thomas O'Larkfn, but as soon as he laid his eyes on him he concluded not to ask, fearing, from his appearance, a worse reception than McDougall had given him. The last Mr. Brown heard from Bennett, he was somewhere in Ore gon, having gone there to fight the Indians. A letter from Cataina to the Augs burger Allgmemeine Zcitung of Au gust Ist says: "Since tlie beginning of Slay the largest and highest volcano In Europe —the Aetna —appears to be in a period of activity which announ ces an approaching eruption. It will soon be five years since a torrent of lava covered the Vald de Bove. From September, 18b9 to the present day the mountain lias been quiet. Prof. Silvestri, who has studied with atten tion the series of phenomena pro duced, recently passed two days and nights on the summit of the cone, and concluded from what he saw that a new eruption may be expected at no very distant date."
