Government Secrets.
The government of the United
States has been cursed long enough
with secrets, and we want no more of
them. Secret Post Agents, Secret
Treasury Agents, Secret Detectives,
and secret senatorial expeditious. This
government, nor no other repectable
government in the world, has any use
for this tribe of secret gentlemen,
prowling over the world af. the ex
peuse of the honest, hard-working
people of the country. It is simply a
disgrace for a Republican government
te wink at such a thing, much less to
inaugurate it. A government should,
have no secrets. Every man and, wo
man in the nation is entitled to know
everything that pertains to the Gov
ernment. Each ope is direoijy inter
ested, and one as much as another.
The old despotic governments of the
world could uot exist without a tribe of
secret service-meu whose business it
is to watoh their enslaved subjects
and prevent their strike for freedom.
L|ke alt unwilling slaves, au espoin«
age must be kept upon them. Sat
what use have we for spies peeping
arouud our kitchens and bei cham
bers. This Government has. teen in
sinuating this relic of despotism upon
us for the past ten yes**, a,n4 if per
mitted to go on, we wi-U- aeon have an
army of spies sitfßcjeiKt to peep into
every man's, bread try iv the United
It is uothing more nor less
than a grand centralizing scheme to
take from the States and the people
their liberties. Let us rise up as one
man and pat a stop to it. There are
but few secrets in private business
that are honorable. A very #b
servation will convince any ou# that
the class of men who, in corxwioo bus
iness transactions, are always,working
on the secret plan, and toying to keep
their business out of sight, ar# gener
ally scheming to get th* advantage of
somebody. Wo want no better sign
of a grand rascal than to have a man
talk in a half whisper about all busi
ness, or to. see him playing hide-and
seek M» everything he does. And for
a noble, proud government to stoop to
such things is disgraceful in the ex
treme.
Pinchbeck on the War Path.
A letter from New Orleans data*
March 23d says: "He blames Kellegg
for his rejection in the Senate. Eeh
logg, be says, is tired of his Guberna
torial position, and desires to get back
into the Senate, and will, if such, a
thing be possible, sacrifice hLori
(Pinchbeck) rather than faiL If this
is accomplished, he intends to> have a
split In the Republican rank* that
will break down Kellogg* ©rant, Wil
liams and everybody else. He says
if his interests are sacrificed and if
the much-vavaried love of the Radi
cals for the- negro fails in the test
which i* is now undergoing in his case
he wil) tell all he knows, and, to use
hjs own wands, 1 buret the whole con
<*ern.' " The letter goes on to state:
From Pinchbeck's.standpoint the "compro
mise is an attempt to choke him off. While
in Washington he understood that Kellogg
ingeniously hinted totne President that com
promise might.cad in Casey's election to the
Senate. Thlsi was done in order to engage
Presidential aid, wnile ln reality Kellogg was
scheming tv get the place himself. He says
that he lound out during his recent stay In
Washing!©* that all the Republicans he met,
and thej- were the leaders and shining ilgnts
of the party, simply loved the negro as a
voter and. not us a man. That he has not the
sligUUst douht that several leading Republi
cans would have voted against his admission
noA Itecause they cared about the legality or
i'.&gality of the Legislature that elected him,
Kit they feared that he might put their Re
publican theories to the test by demanding
social as well as political recognition.
This, in brief, is Pinchbeck's opinion. He
is coming home to roost too near bis white
friends, and they are becoming very uneasy.
The Postofflce has been again offered to him,
with a guarantee that he shall remain in un
distu bed possession for the remainder of
Grant's term, if he will resign his claims to
•he Senate: but up to present writing his
frie j.is advise him to decline.
Pinchbeck may as well empty
himself now as tiny time; "tell all he
knows" and "burst the concern," for
they will never admit him into the
Senate. He is a dull student or he
would have learned long ago that the
''much-vaunted love of the Radical
party" would fail the negro when it is
needed. It is a lesson they must all
learn, sooner or later. Thousands,
more apt than Pinchbbick, have al
ready learned it, and, like sensible
people, they cast therr votes for men
they know. This threat of Pinch
beck's implies that there is a dark
history connect** with the party
which, if made known, would cause
an explosion — v burst" things up.
Such things a*e very humiliating to
the America* nation, but "murder
will out." We shall be treated to
some rich chapters by and by.
Emigration.
Am* still they come. The people
are peuring into our county iv great
numbers. Each steamer from Ban
Francisco comes crowded with passen
gers and the different lines of stage*
have all they can do. Many who
come are only transient visitors, mere
ly prospecting to see how they would
like this for a home, but the great
bulk of them are coming to stay. Konae
have been here before and have bought
homes and have been back for their
families. Others have come at a ven
ture and brought their families with
a determination to drive down their
stakes and live with us. Wearegbul
to receive them, and hope they umv
be even better pleased than they an
ticipated. It is rather hazaxdau*,
however, to break up a family aau
move to a strange country merely up
on the advice of other people. If pos
sible, it is better to go and look first.,
What pleases one man may not please
auother. Every country has some
admirers. There are a class of people
that believe the pine forests of North
Carolina is next to Paradise? others
who are delighted with Alaska. Such
people would be very miserable in
Los Angeles, and if any such are here
they will be forever whining and pin
ing for the dear old home they left
behind. Hence it Is a great responsi
bility to advise friends to break lip
and come here without first looking.
And we would not advise them e.ven
to come and look, unless they bjiti"
means enough to get away vith jf
they should not like It. We have ev
ery reason to believe (feat thousands
of poor families wilt be induced to
sacrifice ail they have on earth for
Just means enwigh to pay their way
here, ami \V*y will land here without
* dtUlar. If they should be well
pleased with the country and are will
it* to. hty off their coat and go to
work, It will be all well enough. But
if they should b« dissatisfied, and sot
williug to rirv anything but stand
around tbp streets aud curse the coun
try, it wiU be a great misfortune. We
have seen a few of this class, and we
Would rather the whooping-cough,
chioken-pox, or any other small
plague, would infest the city than to
have a score of such men with us.
I Their presence is really demoralizing.
To keep company with one of these
fellows for an hour makes one feel as
if he had just come out of a night
mare, aud it requires an hour's sun
shine and two hours' fresh Los Ange
les air to enable us to shake the influ
ence off. Let people come and look,
and if they are not pleased, let them
leave. We want no growlers nor dis
satisfied people here. We are not
afraid but there will be plenty of peo
ple who will be delighted with our |
eeuntry to till it up in a short time,
and such people will make us a happy
community.
The Alfeghanians.
A Salt Lake? exchange has the fol-
I lowing notice of this troupe which
will appear in our city Monday eve
ning, the 12th inst.: A much larger
audience greeted the Alleghanians
last night than on the previous eve
ning—an evidence of increasing inter
est in this most pleasing entertain
ment. The troupe appeared to as
mach advantage as on any former oc
casion. The new features of the pro
gramme were well received and heart
ily encored. Noticably excellent was
the duo " Say once Again," from Don
j Pasuuale, by Miss Packard and Mr.
Benjamin. The lady was in excellent
voice and sang sweetly, and the gen
tleman, always good, is one of tbe
most valuable members of the troupe.
In bis original ballad, "Let me rest
whore the loved ones are sleeping," he
proved himself to be a composer of
rare merit, as well as a fine musician.
Among the new vocal selections
given by Miss Marie Packard, was the
beautiful song, "The Lover and the
Bird," most effectively aud tastefully
rendered. It brought an encore, to
which the lady gracefully responded.
The solo and quartette, " Good night,
God bless You," sung bythe quartette
and the words:
How beautiful the home inns*, be, where lov
Ing ones caress you.
And, afur prayer, you always hear the sweet
"Good night; God bless yea."
Found a response in the heart of every
one who loves "Home, Sweet Home."
The bell-playing, the silver orchestral
baud, the musical glasses and the
songs and comicalities of Sam Collins
were appreciated and many of them
encored.
This evening the ladies of the troupe
—Miss Marie Packard and Miss Belle
Durgin—take a benefit, when, in ad
dition to the usual specialties of the
Alleghanians, the great Sam Collins
will produce his very laughable
Dutch farce, entitled the "Dutch Jus
tice," in which Mr. Oiling will per
sonate the hero, a Dutch Justice, as
sisted by members of tbe dramatic
company.
Youthful Travelers.
The first desire that a boy has after
he gets out of the trundle bed is to
travel and th*e next desire is to en
lighten mankind by writing for a
newspaper. Boys that have good
sense will write some very good items
of information, but hoodlum boys al
ways write nonsense. There is one of
the latter from Troy, New York, at
Spadra, in this county, who contrib
utes to tbe Troy Budget. His com
munication was a wonderful produc
tion—the making fun of an honest old
man for being unable to spell and
compose cerrectly. There was a com
pany of such chaps once devoured by
a bear for making sport of an old man
with a bald head. We would remind
this youth, Randall, from Troy, that
there are plenty of grizzlies in Califor
nia.
Eastern Wool Market.
Boston, April 7th.—The wool mar
ket remains unchanged, with fair in
quiry for all kinds. Sales of Ohio and
Pennsylvania fleeces have been made
at 52(0>56 cts., as to quality; Michigan
and Wisconsin fleeces, [email protected]; comb
ing and delaine, [email protected]; pulled wool,
45(aj47, as to quality; good and choice
supers, 50(aj67.
New York, April 3d.—With the
exception of an improved tone, the
wool market remains as reported last
week. Quite a number of manufac
turers visit the market and their pur
chases, though only to supply imme
diate wants, have been sufficient to
check the downward course of prices.
If we except carpet stock, Fall Cali
fornia has found a more active demand
than any other description. This is
chiefly owing to the lack of confidence
which the holders have in the future
of the market, aud they have been
forcing matters; but with heavy sales
during two weeks, tone has gradually
crept into the market, and at the
close prjees were firmer than they
have been for weeks. The goods
market continues quiet, but an im
provement is looked for toward the
close of the month. Sales for the
week have been: 1,106 bales of Fall
California at 14}@25 cts., the latter for
very choice; 150 do. Spring do. at 28
(2,30 cts.; 55,000 pounds scoured do.,
[email protected] cts.
No less than 34,225 immigrants have
arrived in California overland since
April Ist, 1874.
Steamers and Railroad.
New York, April 7th.—The Tri
bune says it is rumored on Wall street
that the Pacific Mail Company has
discovered discrepancies iv accounts
in San Francisco and Hongkong
which reduce the fiuauces $378,000 be
low the estimate.
The Tribune says a bitter war has
been inaugr, ra ted between the Pana
ma Railrr,ad and Union Pacific and
Pacific tUU interests. When Sidney
Dinar, became associated with the ad
rah'lstration of the Pacific Mail, al
io bat the first act was to endeavor to
arrange a working basis which would
be generally satisfactory. While rep
resentatives of several companies
agreed that such arrangement would
be desirable, yet there was such a
conflict of opinion as to what would
be a proper division of protlls, that
the conference ended. At the annual
election of Directors of the Panama
Railroad, on Monday, all the Pacific
Mail representatives were dropped
from the list. Immediately after the
organization of the Panama directory,
yesterday, the Panama Company
passed a resolution giving notice to
the Pacific Mail Company that at the
end of ninety days the present con
tract regulating the division of profits
would be abrogated. The Pacific Mail
Directors caused word to be sent to the
Panama Company that they would
waive ninety days' notice, prefering
that the contract should be abrogated
at once, the intention being to ship
Chinese freight over the Pacific rail
roads instead of by Panama, as now,
allowing the Pacific Mail Company
one-half the receipts for freight be
tween China and New York for all
freight thus carried. The Panama
Railroad people, not to be outdone,
threaten the Pacific Mall Company
with a rival line of steamers, which
will be run iv the interest of the Pan
ama Company.
Terrible Explosion of Giant Powder.
San Francisco, April Bth.—Ad
joining the Hathaway brick ware
house, near the corner of Harrison
aud Spear streets, a small wooden
building was used by Risden, the con
tractor, for storing and preparing
cartridges of giant powder. An ex
plosion occurred in this building yes
terday afternoon, which caused a
scene of ruin and confusion which it
is hardly possible to fully describe.
The office, a restaurant nnd two frame
buildings adjoining, were blown into
fragments. The walls of the ware
house on the East were crushed in and
the warehouse, a large hay-barn sn
tbe opposite side of Harrison street
and tbe debris of the frame buildings
were all fired.
The breaking out of fire iv the ruins
shortly after the explosion caused tbe
greatest consternation. It was at once
evident from the cries of the victims
that a number of persons were buried
under the debris of the fallen build
ings and tbe utmost efforts were made
to save them, but with only partial
success. A man named Clark, fore
man for Risden, was taken from the
ruins after the fire had been partially
subdued, burned to a crisp. The bod
ies of Frederick Haas, saloon-keeper,
and a colored man named Brown were
recovered not much disfigured. Jas.
Mclntyre, lately discharged from the
navy, died shortly after his removal.
Tbe bodies were removed to the
Morgue. Several men, women and
children, badly injured, were removed
to St. Mary's Hospital for medical
treatment; three of whom—Alexander
Thompson, Wm. Knight and Henry
Richards—are not expected to recover.
Several others received severe, though
not necessarily fatal, injuries. A
number of persons were missing at
last accounts and it is feared that they
are bnried in the ruins. The loss of
goods in the bonded warehouse will
not fall short of half a million dollars.
It was filled with sugar, burlaps and
ales, consigned to S. C. Merrill & Co.,
C. Ado lube, Low & Co., and Parrott &
Co. The goods were insured by the
consignees. Loss on the warehouse,
$15,000; uninsured. The other losses
will probably aggregate $30,000.
There was a. great scarcity of water,
owing to the small-sized mains in
that portion of the city, and the en
gines took water from tne bay. It is
thought that an abundant supply
from the hydrants would have pre
vented much loss of property. The
number of lives lost will probably be
definitely ascertained this afternoon,
when a thorough search of the ruins
will be made.
The following is the list of persons
killed by the explosion:
Fred. Haas, saloon-keeper. He
leaves a wife and seven children. His
body was not much disfigured. The
bones were broken, and he was killed
instantly. A man named Clark, fore
man for J. N. Rlsdon; burnt to a
crisp. A colored man named Brown;
taken from the ruins dead; not much
disfigured. He was employed about
the wharf as messenger. James Mc
lntyre; died shortly after being re
moved to the hospital. He was dis
charged from tbe navy a few days ago.
A portion of the trunk of a human
body, snpj. i to be that of the driver
of the Gus I'oui .tiny's truck, was re
covered from lb* ruins this morning.
This is tbe fourth liody recovered from
the ruins, and with Mclntyre, who
died at St. Mary's Hospital last night,
makes five thus tar known to be dead.
Parties are now engaged in searching
the ruins, where it is supposed other
bodies are buried.
Bodies Found.
San Francisco, April Bth.—A
drowned man was found in the bay
this morning at the foot of Third
street. Tlie body was removed to the
morgue , but It has not yet been iden
tified.
The body ot Mrs. Andrews, a
widow lady, living with her brother
on Kentucky street, was found on the
beach near Long Bridge this morning.
Her brother is a conductor on the Bay
View horse cars. When passing the
house last night, she stood in the door
and waved her hand at him. On his
return home she was missing, and
nothing more was seen of her until
her body was discovered on tlie beach
this morning.
Wrong End Foremost.
A countryman bought a shirt in
Raleigh, N. C, which was the first
white one be ever owned. The next
Sunday he was to be|married, and that
was the occasion that had incited him
to the purchase* The shirt bad a nice
starched bosom, and was open in the
back —a style that was new to the
possessor. After careful study he put
it on with the opening in front, con
cluding that tbe stifi bosom was in
tended us a kind of shoulder-brace to
make him stand erect. Thus dressed,
he met the bride at the church door;
but her knowledge was greater than
his about shirts, and she made him go
home and reverse the garment before
she would allow the ceremony to pro
ceed.
About 1,760 tons of wheat yet re
