CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. FRIDAY SFIPT. :5, 1874. The San Diego Union has entered upon its eighth volume and appears to be prospering. The I'nion is an ex cellent local paper and is doing good work for San Diego county. Although » the Union has never evinced a great deal of friendship for the Herald we have always regarded it as one of our most valued exchanges. Th c nomination of Sam i ci. J.Ti i.den for Governor by tlie Democrats of New York was Lhs lust thing they could do. TILDKK was one of the prime movers in breaking up the old Tammany Ring and is entitled to much credit therefor, but as he will probably have Governor DIX for an opponent he is sure to have a hard fight and one difficult to win. Engineers Moore and CRAWFORD left yesterday for the purpose of exam ining the Soledad Pass as to its prac ticability for a railroad route. These gentlemen go out in the employ ofthe Los Angeles and Independence Rail road Company and it is expected they will be able to report in a week or ten days. It is believed the road between this city and Independence will be shortened about forty miles. If this should prove true it would be a great inducement to the company to con struct the 10 id by the Soledad route. Our Mercantile Marine—Past and Present. Before the breaking out of our un fortunate civil war, it will be remem bered that our mercantile marine was rapidly gaining the ascendancy among the nations of the carth —not only as tonnage, but the great superiority of our ships as sailers. The seas of the world were whitened with our canvas, and the stars and stripes were borne aloft in every port, by ships that were the admiration, and, at the same time, the envy, of the world—bearing to market the rich and abundant products of our land and bringing back in ex change suchcommodities as our wants required. Even the great passenger steamer lines, to Liverpool, to Bremen and to Havre were in our hands and bearing our flag. As an illustration of the rising glory of the American mercantile marine, we may be par doned for referring to an incident which happened during the Crimean war, and which is doubtless within tlie recollection of many at the pres ent day. At that time, England being a party to the war, our mercantile marine was supreme, and Britania could no longer boast that she ruled the waves. A fleet of American clip pers was chartered by France to con vey troops to the Crimea. Among them were the Great Republic and the Challenge (other names not recollect ed), and the French Government de tailed two of her lleetest war steamers to convoy them. For some two or three days after they left port, the clippers, by shortening sail and back ing and filling, enabled the war steamers to keep up with them, but, at last, our seamen growing impatient of restraint, crowded on all sail, shaped their course, and safely landed their human freight In tho Crimea, amidst the eclat of the assembled armies, three days before the convoys entered port. In short, our mercantile suprem acy was becoming so eminent as to excite the apprehensions and fears of the " mistress of the seas," aud not long after this a resolution was intro duced in the House of Commons to appoint a committee of eminent busi ness men to "inquire into the matter" and to ascertain "how it is that Amer ican ships, paying higher wages to seamen and feeding them better, were able to successfully compete with British ships in the carrying trade of the world ?" Tlie labors of this com mittee were brought to a premature close by the breaking out of our civil war; not, however, before they had reached the following conclusions: "That American ships were faster sailers, making three voyages where British ships made but two; that their crews were gener ally more Intelligent and that their modern improvements and ap pliances for "working ship"—for reef ing and unfurling sail—for receiving and discharging cargo and handling anchor —they were sailed with much smaller crews." Sucli was the condi tion of our mercantile marine before the breaking out of our civil war. This drove the most of it into ordinary or to be sold to foreign powers; and since that time our immense products have been taxed millions by foreign powers for carrying them to market, and our imports by other millions for bringing them to our shores —to say nothing of the millions paid to for eign bottoms In the great steamer pas senger lines —all of Which might and would have been saved to the country long ere this, if our Government had performed its plain duty, or if we had placed a statesman at its head, instead of a man without a civil record and not much to be proud of as a soldier. This loss of our mercantile marine was probably an unavoidable incident of the war; but lias our Government done all in its power to recover this lost position in tho mercantile world ? Amidst its clamor for and retention of power, has it ever thought of the subject? This great interest, instead of being fostered by wise and discrim inating enactments, ha* been lefc to languish, and at times to be sacriiiced to satisfy party aggrandizement; and the axe no longer resounds in our for rests, and our great ship-yards are silent as the grave, and shipbuilding has been transferred to the Clyde, to the Thames aud the Mersey. Penn sylvania must be conciliated In the interests of the Administration-tlie New England States on her manufac tures -the West on the fluancial ques tion, and the great corporations on their several and peculiar interests; and amidst this wrangling for offlce the great interests of the country are sacriflced, and we are now, after the lapse of nine years, at the mercy of foreign bottoms to carry our groat staples to the markets of the world and to bring our imports to our shores thus sending millions abroad to en rich foreign nations and Impoverish our own country. And this is the ad ministration that has the presumption to ask the people for another and third lease of power ! Had statesmen been at the head of Government, some thing would have been done long ere this time towards recognizing our former ascendancy on the seas. The people are as active, as energetic, and enterprising as in days of yore, but their energies are paralyzed by an in competent, vacillating and corrupt Government, which overlooks every le gitimate function for which it was placed in power, in their shameful scramble for the spoils and retentkn of offlce. We have no partizan feel ing to subserve in this matter; there is very little difference in the views of honest, patriotic men as to what shall be the policy of tho Government, and as to political parties per «c, they all have the same set and number of prin ciples—the two loaves and Jive fishes. We care not whether a so-called Re publican,or Democrat,or Independent, is called to power,so that he be a tried statesman whose reputation for abili ty, honesty, integrity and patriotism is of infinitely more value to him than mere money or office. But we do want the pre3ent Augean stables cleansed, and the present venal horde sent back into retirement. Some of them have already been tried by pub lic opinion and found guilty, and among them the second officer of the Government, not that he was more corrupt than the remainder, or that he was a less cunning fox, but merely be cause he had not bush enough to cover his tracks; and if the frequent use of that convenient member, and for the same purpose, tends to impair its use fulness, then it is to be hoped that numbers of others will soon be in the same category with the unfortunate Schcvler. Los Angeles Social Gatherings. They are very pleasant, with one exception: there is too much sitting and staring in silence, especially among tlie gentlemen. Now it is al most unbearable to a timid stranger like myself to sit In a long hall oppo site a row of finely apparelled, intelli gent and ha&dsome men. I cannot keep from glancing at them occasion ally, and think how much I would like to converse with some of them, or take a promenade around the room; but they are as immovable as the Sphinx; they neither talk with each other nor attempt to entertain any lady, young or old. I was in Good Tem plars' Hall on the latest festive occa sion, and it was very hard for me to keep from making an overture in that direction. But every one knows that it would be a great breach of etiquette for a lady to go more than half way towards establishing a social basis. I did, however, venture timidly across the hall, when I saw a professor of music whom 1 knew, and happy was I to have an excuse for approaching thi t dignified array of embodied silence. How did I get over those quick glances from forty pairs of wondering eyes ? Oh, by hastily addressing the accom plished Professor with an invitation to play the organ, which was gracefully accepted; and the result was the play ing and singing of Prof. Havell,which was one of tile most delightful features of tlie evening. Why is it that so many gentlemen sit all the evening gazingat the oppo site side, at nearly as many ladies, who sit gazing at them? Are they ac quainted with none of the ladies ? If that is the reason, there should be a committee appointed to introduce them. As for myself, I am a wife and mother, and my husband's presence and such share of his attention as the claims of his many lady admirers per mit him to bestow upon me, quite sat isfies me and relieves, me of tlie possi ble imputation that I have a personal interest In having introductions more general at the so-called " socials." I not only wish to see that " every lad die has his lassie " and that timid and bashful young gentlemen have the ice broken for them, to the end that nei ther male nor female " wall-flowers " be obliged to " waste their sweetness on the desert air;" but I also desire that all come in for a share in the gen eral extindon of acquaiutance. I have rarely enjoyed a social eve ning more than that of Wednesday, and if your rules and regulations con tinue to throw the latch-string to the " stranger within your gates," I may give myself the pleasure of attending still others in their turn. Lady Gladdys. Incendiarism in Davisville. Davisvillk, Bept. 21.—Six build ings were burned down on Main street, called the Woodland block, four of them belonging to N. L. Drew, of Sacramento. Martin's Hotel caught fire several times, but was saved from serious damage. This is the third time In two weeks that this block has been set on fire. This time one of the build ings was saturated with coal oil, and nothing could save it. Young Man Killed. Martinez, Sept. 22.—An accident caused by a runaway team, and result ing in the death of a youmr man, oc cured near Black Diamond Landing this morning. Tlie deceased was em ployed as a herder on Whitney's ranch; was a native of England, and aged about twenty years. Name un known. New Branch State Prison. Sachaiiento, Bept. 21.—Mr. Myles, contractor for the new Branch State Prison at Folsom, commenced the work of excavation to-day.

Jones, United States Commissioner ot* Marengo county, and Republican candidate for Probate Judge, writes that he has not been killed, and that not a single outrage has been commit ted In the county on account of politi cal feeling, and free speech and ex pression of opinion can be Indulged in anywhere, and the best feeling pie vails between colored Republicans and Democrats. ('etsiou of Spanish Territory to tier mail). Chicago, Sept. 22.—The statement that (Spain eotemplates a cession of Territory in the West Indies to Ger many, has recently been semi-oftt cially denied. The Washington Chron icle OM the following in reference to what looks now as a probable event: "Spain may cede some of her posses sions to Germany, which, by right, should come into the hands of the United States. Our Government is not insensible to the question, but is keeping watch on Germany's diplo macy in this direction. Members of the Cabinet assert, with one accord, that in tho event this cession is made by Spain, the Monroe doctrine will certainly be enforced. From New Orleans. Chicago, Sept. 23.—The Timet? New Orleans special says the White League have received notice to be ready to spring to arms at an hour's notice, and an attack upon the Kellogg govern ment and United States troops is ex pected to take place to-day. This is to be done with the purpose of compel ling tiie Federal authorities lo declare martial law and establish a military government, and not with the design of obtaining control of the State of fices. The failure of the attempt at compromise with the Kellogg govern ment in regard to the management of the election in November is said to be the reason for this new outbreak. The White League does not expect to achieve success, except so far as to compel the establishment of a mili tary government. If this shall be ef fected, the purpose of the rebellion will be accomplished. McEneryand Perm will to-morrow issue a circular requir ing an inspection of all State troops and the return of all State arms in their hands and earnestly urging all citizens to carry out the terms of sur render in the same spirit. Should the State officers make search, conflicts and bloodshed would certainly occur, but if the United States officers are assigned to the duty, there would be no resistance. New Orleans, Sept. 23.—The Polit ical Conference in New Oilcans will be re-opened at noon to-day. In Ter rebonne Parish a joint ticket has been agreed upon. Reverdy Johnson on tnc Louisiana Question. New York, Sept. 22. — Reverdy Johnson publishes a letter arguing that the President erred in recognizing the Kellogg Government in Louisiana originally, because the question was a political, not a judicial one; therefore Judge Durell's decision in favor of Kellogg was neither conclusive nor binding, because unauthorized. Nev ertheless, Johnson holds that the Perm party were wrong in resorting to vio lence, because the right of revolution can never be supposed to exist under an established government. Each State is bound to every other and to the United States. The obligation by power is such that the right by force to change her form of government is not possessed, or its exercise might in terfere with the relation she bears to her sister States, as well as to the par amount authority of the United States. Johnson acquits (?) the Pres ident of the constitutional power to dissolve the Kellogg rule as the case stands. Disgusted with the Democratic Party. Colonel James O. Broadhead, a prominent lawyer and Democratic leader of Missouri, has written a letter declaring himself to support Major General Fry,the Independent candi date for Governor. He declares his belief that the purpose and spirit of those having charge of Demo cratic organizations in Missouri is to make war upon Union men. Ho is utterly opposed to the Radical party but wants none of such Democracy as is prevalent. He concludes his letter as follows: "Above all things, the country needs repose and order, and if ihe peo ple would seek their true interests they should avoid Radicalism of both extremes. But the Missouri Democ racy is drifting into the worst kind of Radicalism. Its doctrines on the cur rency question leads to repudiation and springs mainly from the fact that the Government bonds were issued to raise means to carry cm the war. Its hostility to Union men shows that it still harbors a yearning for revenge, that must inevitably culminate in a looseness cr disorder which will par alyze the industry of our state, and drive emigration from its borders. I am sure that if the people of Missouri were satisfied that the success of the Democratic Party in the State would cause the canonized bones of the Re bellion to break its cerements, they would have none of it." Political. Utk a, N. V., Sept. 23.—The Re publican State Convention met and effected a temporary organization by electing Hon. Theodore M. Pomerov, Chairman. On the re-assembling of the Convention in the aftetnoon, Ed. D. Morgan was chosen President, with the usual number of Vice-Presidents. General Sharp moved to proceed to the nomination of a candidate for Governor, and proposed the nomina tion of Governor John A. Dix by ac clamation. The proposition was greeted with applause and the Con vention by a rousing vote ratified the nomination. General John C. Robin son, was then nominated by acclama tion for Lieutenant-Governor. Chicago, Sept. 23.—The Minnesota Democratic Liberal State Convention lias nominated Wescott Wilkins for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The Missouri Republican State Con vention met and made no nomina tions, but accepted those made by the Reform party and then adjourued. Wool Market.

LOOP. — In Los Angeles, Sept. 22d, Ida C, daughter of John and Muriau Chamberlain Loop in the sixteenth year ol her age. In the death of this only and beloved child, the Iron has entered deep Into the souls of the bereaved pareuts. Marked as the victim ofthe fell destroyer, consumption, she was brought to this sunny clime with the faint hope that its bulmy influence might ar rest, if not counteract, the disease. But In vain; in less than one month all was over, and the loved one slept the peaceful sleep of the Just. The darling of her parents and be loved of all who knew her, here and at her former home in Illinois, has gone home to her God and Savior. In the arms she loved so well she passed away, peacefully aud calmly; so fitting seomed tho end of a like peaeeAil and quiet life. She had su tiered much, as is almost always the lot or the victims of con sumption; but she slept quietly at the last, and died without a struggle. One glance fell upon bcr weeping parents, and hereyes closed on earth, to open again nnd forever In the life immortal. It seemed as If ungels must have stood by, ready to receive so pure a spirit. Brief as had been her stay here, she had attracted to herself by her patient sufferings many a sympathizing heart. Around her old home the sad news will come with an appal ling chill to a host of old and young, who only knew to love her. May the blessed consola tions ol God bo with those who mourn, that the re-4inion, at no distant day, may be one of eternal Joy. Her remains were deposited in tlie city cem etery, the Rev. W. H. Hill, of tbe Episcopal Church, reciting the beautllul burial service of that Church. NEW TO-DAY.
