CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
SATURDAY. SEPT. 5, 1874. Tho Express says it did not use tho word "radical" as quoted by us. On re ferring to the article wo find that it did not. It used tlie word "racial," a word that both Wkhster aud Wor cester forgot to write in their large books. Mrs. Laura Dk Force Gordon, who runs the Stockton Leader— a sprightly little paper, by the way hired a Chinaman to run one of her job presses. She lost a subscriber by the operation. Poland, who claimed the author ship of the press-gag law in Congress, has been defeated in Vermont. When the regular Republican nominee is defeated in that State, he must be the kind of man that the people would not trust as far as they could throw a church up a hill. The Express says tlie Hekald is another that will not have "Died of its own smartness," written on its tomb. It is said children and fools tell the truth, and although the Express is not a child we fear the Herald need not expect to have the coveted line graven on its monument. The seer non compus has spoken against it. Mr. Geo. B. Davis, the proprietor of the Alden fruit evaporator patent for Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties, arrived with his family yes terday morning. By the next steamer Mr. Davis will receive five of the evaporators, together with the latest improvements in the process. The machinery will be set in operation as soon as the building in course of erec tion is'ready for occupancy. The Council on Thursday came within one of refusing to order the grading of Temple street. This would have been a bit of bad legislation. The property-owners pay the greater part of the expense of street grading, and the city realizes the advance in property in the increase of taxation. The property that will be opened up to improvement through the grading of Temple street is extensive, and the number of houses that will be built as soon as the grading is done will be considerable—so considerable that the increased revenue which the city will realize in taxation will more than treble the cost of grading. To refuse to grade and improve streets running through private property is always bad judgment on the part of municipal authorities. Placer Mining. The Bulletin ofthe 2d says: "The halcyon days of placer digging are gone forever, but the honest miner still lives and flourishes about Placer ville. At least twenty drifting claims are being worked. In some the gold is extracted by simply washing in a sluice-box; In others, where the gravel is more cemented, it requires crushing by stamps before washing. The com panies working in the vicinity are close corporations. They manage their own affairs and keep their own counsels. They do not appear ou Cal ifornia street. They do not ask the public to share their profits nor help them pay their assessments;" We understand from this that placer min ing, even at this late day, pays better than any other mining, for all other kinds of stock is hawked on California street. We never knew a man who got a stream of water on a gravel bed and stuck to it, that did not come out rich. "They keep their own counsel." No one knows how much they make; it is a secret to all until they retire. Men have run wild over ledges, and once iv a while a fortune is struck. But a placer mine is as sure as an old fashioned tub mill; it grinds out money every day in the year. Thous ands of miners with nothing but pick and pan, have made good fortunes. We have rich gravel beds enough be tween the San Gabriel and the Peru, in this county, to occupy ten thousaud miners twenty years. In and around the Castac mines there are thousands of acres of as rich gravel as was ever worked in California. These mines have been worked for over thirty years—hundreds of tons of the earth have been packed on donkeys three or four miles to the Santa Clara river and washed. As soon as the Castac Company complete their ditch, that country will swarm with picks and pans. On the south side of San Fer nando Mountain, a few miles this side of the town of San Fernando, there is a fine body of placer gravel that will attract attention some day. There are parties now looking at the Peru mines and water privileges with a view of buying. Black Hills. The very florid descriptions of the Black Hill country with which the public is being favored through the columns of certaiu newspapers, savors somewhat strongly of a job. Even the Government seems to have taken stock in the scheme of causing a rush to that part of the world, for we notice an occasional general order from some military department mildly warning the people that they will not be per mitted to visit the Black Hill region. This will ol course stimulate many to go there who would never have thought of such a thing had they not been told they should not do it. General Cus ter's report is very highly colored, and indicates the existence of gardens and golcondas more beautiful ami richer than mortal man has dreamed of. Yet after the picture is painted — the panorama unfolded — and the imagination and cupidity of the be holder excited, he is told that to dream and read of the glorious coun try is all hois vouchsafed. He must not attempt to reach the Arcadia. People who feel themselves taking the Black Hill fever will do well to pause and think; to rend over the accounts of Gold BlufT, Gold Lake, Cariboo, and the many other gold excitements that have turned thousands wild and dotted the route with.lonely graves. Cheap Gas. The question of gas is one that in terests the people of Los Angeles next In importance to that of water. Both of these indispensable articles are items of heavy expense here, and any thing looking to a reduction in the cost of one or the other, receives im mediate attention at the hands of our residents. The Union gas machine seems to be the Moses that will lead us out of the Egyptian darkness in which we are enveloped. We have devoted some time to obtaining accu rate information relative to this ma chine —its powers ns an illuminator and the advantages it possesses over other gas generating machines. We have learned, first, that the machine cannot explode, because there is noth ing explosive about it. Second, it has no fire or weights about it, and at no time is there a pressure to exceed six ounces to the square inch on any part of the machine. It is as safe as a clock or a music-box. Third, that the gas generated is a simple mixture of common air and gasoline. Fourth, that one gallon of gasoline will gener ate 200 feet of gas, and the gasoline is worth in San Francisco only twenty five cents per gallon. Fifth, that the gas generated by the Union machine passes through a test meter only half as fast as coal gas. Sixth, that the cost of the gas manufactured by the Union machine is but one dollar and twenty-five cents per thousand feet in San Francisco. The increase in the cost of tho article manufactured in Los Angeles will be but the freight on gasoline added. It is safe to say that the cost of gas generated by the Union Machine will not exceed one dollar and a half per thousand —quite a sav ing on seven dollars, the price now paid. Seventh, that a thirty light Union gas machine costs $350, and a five hundred or an eight hundred light machine is worth $3,500. Eighth, that the Board of Underwriters will not insure property with one of these harmless machines within less than thirty feet of the building wall. Ninth, that the State Investment, Hamburg-Bremen, Home Mutual, St. Louis Mutual and Commercial Com panies will insure property with the Union gas machine in the cellar, par lor or garret. Tenth, that Mr. JOHN Knotwell, the Agent ol* the Union Gas Company, aud a first-class man, may be found at the Lafayette Hotel in this city. We advise all who desire cheap and clean gas to get a Union circular and after reading it through call on Mr. KNOTWELL and learn how they may manufacture their own gas at a cost less than $1,50 per thousand feet. Fighting Poison with Poison. As an illustration of the power of one poison to counteract another in the human system, a recent ease in this city furnishes a highly important and interesting instance. We give the statement as related to us by Dr. Har ris, who was called to the relief of a would-be suicide, and who adminis tered the successful antidote. Tlie person had taken between forty and fifty grains of opium, and was fast dying. He could no longer swallow, and his extremities wore cold and had turned black, while his respirations only numbered between six and seven to the minute. This last of itself seemed to indicate that all hope was gone, as anything less than eight res pirations a minute had heretofore been known as a sure precursor of (death, As a last resort, the doctor determined to try heroic treatment, and he accord ingly, with a hypodermic syringe, in jected two-thirds of a drachm of nux vomica, dissolved in a teaspoonful of water, beneath the skin over the heart, stomach, spine, and on each arm above the elbow, and on the calf of each leg. The quantity of nux vomica would have been the death of any well man in existence, but in an tagonism to the opium it was in this seemingly hopelessca.se, and in fifteen minutes tlie man was sitting up in bed, conscious, and rapidly recovering.— South Bend (Ind.), Tribune, The Truth Squarely Spoken. It is worse than idle to deceive our selves. There is no wide-spread and substantial prosperity. We can find no class of substantial manufacturers, merchants, agriculturalists, artisans, or common laborers who are steadily earning a profit, or have full or con tented employment. Every device or shift by which money is made or a competence gained seems to be tem porary, and hence all business affairs are very much unsettled. The mer chants are not overstocked with goods, but they are trying to loan their capi tal on call or take a turn with it in some speculative adventure, rather than to employ it in gathering an as sortment of the wares in which they deal. The consumers take hold still more sluggishly and purchase only for immediate necessities. Every where there is a sense of depression and discouragement to activity, an at titude of waiting, without any fore shadowingof the relief to be expected. — N. Y. Journal of Commerce. The Board of Managers of the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Society, will award special and liberal pre miums to any and all articles not enumerated in their schedule of pre miums that they may be placed on exhibition, If deemed necessary. 1 The crusading ladies of Rutland again visited the saloons on Thursday last. The Flow of the Colored Race Toward the Cities. The gravitation of tho negroes to ward the southern cities still contin ues. There the worst of them live in shanties and hovels, and disease and death stalk among them. In the cit ies they die from forty to eighty per cent, faster than the whites. Tail leads me to believe that, as a race they are on the decline; that they are dying faster than they are coming into the world. The numbers in which they are Hocking into the cities are partially shown in the last census. With the late civil rights agitation and tin; bitter feeling iv the country the How to the cities lias been still more largely increased. I take the cities of Columbia and Charleston, South Carolina, and Nashville and Memphis. Tennessee, as illustrations, representing as they do, a border Stale and a cotton State. In 1800 the white population of Columbia was 4,896 and black 3,75". In 1870 tlie black hud risen to 5,295 and the white fallen to 4,002. in Charles ton, in I*oo, the white population was 13,321 and the black 17,140. In 1870 the white was 22,749 ond the black 20,173. In Nashville, in 1800, the white population was 14,043 and the black 3945. In IS7O it stood 10,149 white and 9,700 black. In Memphis, in 1800 it was 18,739 white and 9.882 black, In 1870 it was 24,755 white and 15,471 black. In every southern oity the same state of facts exists. The increase of negroes over whites is enormous. This does not represent an actual increase, but only shows that the agricultural districts are being drained to supply the cities with material for disease and death. The inevitable result will be the gradual decline of the African race in America. Huddled into the cities they are a prey to epidemics,and fall before the breath of their destroy er by thousands.— Southern Corr. Cin cinnati Commercial. NEW TO-DAY.
