CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THURSDAY OCT. S. 1874. We do not credit the report that the Express Is trying to blackmail Mr. Bbacdby. Appearance* seem to beat out the story, but we do not credit it. Till-: Express thinks (he ( ity should be provided with a pound for 'be vic tims of the "F. K." The readers of that paper nave been urging the Council to make such arrangement for a month past. In Alpine county, people who do not properly deport themselves aie madfl to leave. If each county in the Btate adopted this plan what a rush there would be for Nevada, and how our population would decrease. The San Francisco papers are do ing a great deal of exulting over the discovery that there are sixty men in that city worth over one million dol lars each. It is nothing remarkable. There are six hundred men in Los Angeles worth over ten million dol lars apiece—in their own estimation. McDonald ofthe OregonAVrr tt tman, who has been in at the funeral of more newspapers than Uncle Bickering's grave yard will hold; Bishop of the Oakland Tlrantcript, who can write more and say less than any other edi tor in the State, and George of the San Francisco Post, who is the only communist we ever heard of who had the cheek to play at editor of a Demo cratic newspaper, are all yelping at the heels of Samlet. SeaBOUOH edi tor of the Sacramento Union, and, strange as it may appear, Sam does not seem disturbed. Prosperity. No better or more convincing proof of the rapid increase of nusiness and the general pros prosperity of this portion of the State can be oft'ered than a glance at life iv Wilmington harbor. The facilities which a few years ago were more than sufficient for accommodation of trade during the busiest seasons, are now to tally inadequate for the regular trade. There is an immense amount of freight landed at Wilmington harbor. The cargoes of the steamers have kept the landing facilities so busy that a schooner loaded with ties for the Spring Street Railroad has been wait ing ten days for an opportunity to dis charge her cargo. This speaks well for the prosperity of our city and valley. A Foolish Attack. We are not furnished with the mo tive which prompts the attack of the Express on the German - American Club Platform, and through it the German born citizens. The platform adopted by the association speaks for itself and sets up no national claims of any kind and none political that may not be endorsed by those who are not in favor of Legislative temperance. The German-American Club is not a na tional organization, forthe reason that a voter of any nationality may be come a member of it and participate at its meetings. The gentlemen who compose the club are not asked if they are Germans, or Irishmen, or Span iards, nor is nationality made the test of membership. The platform has been published, and all who endorse the principles laid down in that plat form may become members of the club. There is neither truth nor sense in the following paragraph, and it reads like a premeditated insult to every man speaking the German lan guage in the I'nited States: The QerUUMI is the leasl useful language •<ue could be possibly possessed ot' In active life la this country, for the reason that Gar mans readily acquire the English on their ar rival here I'raotlcally, the Chinese tongue would be infinitely more valuable in ihe commercial and racial relations now spring ing Up on this side of the Continent. It is posssble the Chinese language might be more useful to the Express management than the German, but with the majority of people the Ger man tongue is more desirable both in a social and business point of view. We have never heard that the German born citizens of Los Angeles were forming a German Political Club, and we venture the statement that not a German* American can be found who will say such a club has been formed oris proposed to be formed. We are opposed to the formation of German Political Clubs, Irish Political Clubs, or exclusive American Clubs, and we cannot and will not en dorse the propostion of the Express to re-organize the Know-Nothing party, A Large Main Sewer Needed. The city of Los Angeles will not al ways confine herself to the level plain. She will expand and grow. She will ascend the slope and extend over the high landson either side of the river. It is more than probable that men now walking tlie streets will see the city thus grow and remember this predic tion. Cities of large size must have ample sewerage. If the Los Angeles river was a deep and rapid stream al ways running a large volume of water, Los Angeles city would have a main sewer ready furnished. Ismail sewers beneath the surface of tlie streets run ning to the river from the high lands, would give the city a system of sewer age of which there would never be cause for complaint. But as the river does not furnish us the much needed main sewer, it will become the duty of the citizens to build one sooner or later. Owimr to the level surface of the valley this main sewer will neces sarily be several miles In length, but if it had to be laid down for ton miles in order to obtain the required fall it does not obviate the fact that I 'tne day it must be built. With a large well built sewer extending from the upper portion of the city down the river the necessary distance, into Which the Smaller sewer may empty their contents there will be no diffi culty in keeping the city well drained of sewage. So long as there is no sys tem or rule by which underground drains are built and so long as there is no adequate main sewer to which all •mailerones may lead there will al ways be trouble about sewerage. GOVERNMENT TIMBER. We publish the following decision of United states Court Commlsloner Whiting ou tlie ease of Wbitesides, Wbicta has elicited considerable inter est in its trial,and stands as somewhat of a representative ease. Tlie deris ion may perhaps throw some light on the vexed question, Tne United States PS, William White sides. The complaint in tliis ease charges the defendant with un lawfully cutting and destroying tim ber growing on the public lands of tbe United States. The defendant admits the cutting:, and the proof is conclusive upon this point. Hut the defendant undertakes to justify on the ground that the tim ber was cut up into stove-wood for do mestic use, and that it WM required for use on his ineohate pre-emption claim to 100 acres of Government land. The proof shows the land to he within the Railroad Reserve but upon an even section, belonging to the Government, and not the odd section held by the Railroad Company. Defendant proved that he applied to the Land Office and offered to pre empt the quarter section where the alleged trespass was committed, and claimed to be in possession with some small impiovements which he he hail bought of a former occupant. That he was informed by the Register of the Land Office that the land could not be entered, or even a declaratory statement tiled, until after an official survey of the township in which it lay had been made, and the plat filed in"the Land Office in Los Angeles. The defendant was in possession awaiting the action of the Govern ment to enable him to perfect his pre emption. According to the rulings of the Land Office, a party entitled to a pre-emp tion of 160 acres of Government land, who has complied with the law and taken the requisite steps towards per fecting his claim, has the right to cut timber upon it for the purpose of eh ar ing the land for cultivation, putting up buildings, fences and building bridges, aud also for necessary fuel for his own use during the time he Is per fecting his title; but he cannot despoil the timber for mere speculation or gain, by selling timber or firewood to other persons. By the rules of evidence the defend ant is permitted to testify on his own behalf. He swears positively that he cut the wood in question for his own use, intending to burn it in his house upon the claim,where the trespass was alleged to have been committed. There was no pretense that he was clearing the land for cultivation. No positive evidence has been offer ed to contradict the statement of tbe defendant that the wood was for his own use, but there is some circum stantial evidence tending to discredit his statement in that particular. It is in proof that his own family are, and formany years have been, living in Grass Valley, Nevada county, in ihis State, and that they have a homestead there in his wife's name; that defend ant himself is, and for the past year has been, boarding with a family by the name of Bohannan, occupying bis house on his claim; that they are his tenants. The defendant states that he is expecting his own family to live on the place next Winter and that his tenant, Bohannan, will leave. After the wood was seized by the land agent of the Government, the de fendant bought it at public sale, and afterwards hauled it away and sold it in the market, as he had frequently sold other wood from that claim with in the past twelve months. This is another circumstance tending to dis credit the defendant's testimony as to his original intention. But as his dedoreal statement is not directly contradicted, 1 am inclined to the opinion that he could not be con victed if put upon his trial. 1 shall therefore discharge the defendant, and leave him to consult his own con science its to his real motive in cutting wooil upon land to which he had no title and to obtain which he had barely taken an incipient step.

Hamlet overheard Julius Cresar tell King Lear, on the Twelfth Night alter the Tempest, that Antony and Cleopatra had told Corlolanua that Two Gentlemen of Verona were the authors of Shakspeare't plays, Lear Bald: Y'»ii may take it As You Like It, hut I don't believe it, for I heard Romeo and Juliet say that their Love's Labor was Lost when Troll us and CreSSida stole the Comedy of Li nus and sold it to the Merchant of Venice for forty bottles of Old Bout- Don and a package of poker checks. Timon of Athens and Cymbeline were parties to the theft, and after drinking Measure for .Measure witli the Merry Wives of Windsor, told King John ail about it. Richard 111 (a competent oritic)said Bacon could not write even a Winter's Tale, and Henry YJL say that settles it; so, why make so much Ado About Nothing. Othello was busy dealing a live cent game of faro to the IN, V and VI Henrys, and the only remarks made by them were an occasional "Prindle, don't turn, hold on, and a few other forcible remarks of a cursory nature; and as Richard II was absent Taming the Shrew, 1 could get no further evidence as to who wrote Shakspeare. lint All's Well that Ends Well.

No names are mentioned or particulars are given, but the ut most use is made of the reports to de press stocks, and with good success. A London house was mentioned as being embarrassed, but no name is given and nothing definite is known In regard to the matter. Recently a large house of grain merchants in Mull, England, and another in France, sus pended, the latter with liabilities of £200,000 sterling. Both these firms had London connections, and this may explain the rumor about the London bouse. Louisiana Mutters.
