Patrick's Piano Rooms, Spring street. inrSO tf city official PAP am. WEDNESDAY MAY' 12. 1875. The Bulletin mentions James An thony in connection with the Inde pendent candidate for Governor. If Jeems runs, we will repeat the story Charlie Fairfax used to tell about him. The Excxviiner says the Savior was a Democrat. We doubt this. If a man's political principles may be guessed from the politics of his latest associates, we are certain He was not, because the two men between whom He was crucified had all the charac teristics of many Republican Federal office holders. A Washington dispatch says Geo. C. Gorham has left for California, where he intends to fight for the Re publican nomination for Governor. It is a forlorn hope, and indicates that there is truth in the report that he cannot secure his re-election to the Secretaryship of the Senate. It Is reported that Sargent and Gorham have established a bureau in San Francisco for the manufacture of Southern outrage dispatches, for the support of the raw head and bloody bones address of the Republican State Central Committee. That document assumed that every loyal man in the South was being murdered, but the people declined to hoist it in, hence the bogus dispatch business bad to be resorted to. A San Francisco paper attempts to palliate the recently discovered frauds iv the office of that city's Assessor by asserting that it has no doubt similar cases, only in a lesserdegree, might be found in almost every county. This may or may not be true, but should it be only partially true it proves the correctness of the assertion recently made in the Herald that the greater portion of the State's revenue is paid by those whose wealth is not large, while the substance of the rich is passed lightly by and appears on the Assessor's books as possessing a mere nominal value. Nothing is clearer than that a fair assessment of all the property in the State would necessi tate a heavy reduction in the rate of taxation. Now that the investigation into the causes which led to the loss of the steamer Ventura has closed, we pre sume there is no further occasion for the withholding of individual or jour nalistic opinion as to the circum stances which culminated in that un fortunate event. The Nautical Board investigated the case, and a part of its decision is the revocation of the license of Captain Fake. The Board also decide that the loss of the vessel was the result of negligence or carelessness ou tbe part of the Captain, and cen sure his act in running at so high a rate of speed during tbe prevalence of a dense fog, well knowing that he was so near the coast. This conclusion is such as the statements of the passen gers foreshadowed, aud bears cut the views expressed in the Herald soon after the occurrence of the aocident. The San Francisco Post is incensed over the circumstance that the Cen tinela lands were not sold to the "poor immigrant." The ''poor immigrant" or any other poor man wanting land might have done well in purchasing at this or other land sales in this val ley, but be was not present at the auc tion, and the /Wis deprived of its argument tbat the Los Angeles " land sharks" deceived aud swindled the new comers. The truth Is that only a small proportion of the land sold at auction in this valley during the past six months was bid off by new comers. The greater portion of tbe land dis posed of has until lately been held by parties who refused to sell in small lots, and it was only through schemes like Centinela and Artesia that tbe tracts could be broken up. When, however, the land was thrown on the market, it was for the most part pur chased by residents who knew its value. Thanks to the Post and other San Francisco papers, the " poor im migrant" is cautious, and frequently loses a good opportunity through the excess of his caution. In truth, we do not know of an instance where the purchaser of land ln this valley could not sell it out for more than it cost. A Liberal Proposition. In the Weekly Herald is an adver tisement signed by Norman C. Jones, the careful reading of which we rec ommend to every new arrival in this valley. Of the many schemes aud plans on which land is offered to the home-seeker we are inclined to regard that of Mr. Jones as the fairest and most liberal. In the first place the land and water privilege is precisely as represented, and the owner proves his honesty of purpose by preferring that those who design purchasing should live on the premises until they have raised one crop, and thus satis fled themselves of the fertility of the soil and the abundance of water. These lands are located ln the San Gabriel valley, at the debouchment of the San Gabriel river from the moun tains, and in them is invested the per petual ownership of one-half the wa ter of the river. Mr. Jones has al ready thrown a sufficient quantity of tbe water for present use over the tract, and tbe amount yet remaining in the natural channel is more than sufficient to thoroughly Irrigate every acre of the entire tract, The soil of this land is capable of producing any and everything that will grow in the temperate or semi-tropical climate. It is never affected by frost, and at no time within the past twenty years have the young plants been injured by cold or frosty weather. But these are facts which will demonstrate them selves to all who accept the offer of Mr. Jones and make the trial hy rais ing one crop. We shall have occasion to refer to the very liberal offer of Mr. Jones in the future, and in the mean time refer all seekers after informa tion to the advertisement in the Weekly Herald. Why Not Speak for Himself. Every now and then some obscure individual, to fame and fortune un known, after volunteering the infor mation that he is the intimate per asonl friend of the President — the hearer of his most secret thoughts and his confidant and adviser—proceeds to inform the expectant world that his Excellency is not a candidate for the third term, and would not accept the nomination for re-election if tendered him by the unanimous consent of the Republican party. This is all very well so far as it goes, but unfortunately for both the President and his fugle men, it does not go far; it does not, iv fact, go at all. The people are not in clined to accept the statement of the vassal, while the chief maintains a non-committal attitude. One word from Gkant himself would effectually and finally settle the question, and he very well knows that until he utters that word the protestations and asser vatlons of his " intimate friends " and "confidential advisers" will go for naught—that they pass by unheeded, receiving neither the attention nor confidence of the people. Yet he as carefully avoids uttering that one word as he would the pronouncing of his own doom. Why these assurances from unreliable and unofficial sources, aud why the continued silence of the oracle ? Is there but. one conclusion open to the candid, thinking man ? We trow not, and that conclusion is that the unofficial pronounciamento is a preconcerted falsehood, and the President will not speak, be cause to do so would be to un mask his plans and give the lie direct to the oft repeated assertions of his satellites—to pronounce and brand as false reports which he has himself caused to be circulated. Grant may yet announce that he is not a candidate for a third term, but if he makes such announcement it will be under a pressure so great that even his bull-dog pertinacity cannot longer resist it. He will only do so when the last vestige of a hope that he can retain his place at the head of the nation has passed away. It is im possible he should be so stupid as not to know that by maintaining silence on this most important question he is driving thousands of men out of the Republican party daily, and digging deep and wide the grave in which his persistence will bury that party so far beneath the surface that it will scarcely hear the resurrection horn. If he is not relying upon a forlorn hope; if he does not flatter himself that with the weak and enfeebled force which will stand by him unto the day of battle — to the hour of trial—he may yet win the victory, why does he persist in a course which is decimating his party with the certain rapidity that an epi demic melts away an army. And finally, if he does not intend to try for a third term, why is it that the lead ing journals of the party have not busied themselves in naming his suc cessor? There are able men in the party; men who would be candidates if Grant uttered that little word; men who have newspaper organs that would gladly urge their claims upon the party, were the embargo taken off. But neither those men nor their or gaus dare speak of that which is nearest the'r hearts, because the Pres ident is not yet satisfied that he can not force his re-election. Morton, Sherman, Washburn, Carpenter, Blame, Wilson, Boutwell, Dix, Conkling and a host of others are anxiously waiting for that little word, but until it is spoken they nor their organs dare whisper that they would like the party nomination for Presi dent. Centennial State Board of Managers for Cali fornia. The Commissioner and Alternate Commissioner for the State of Califor nia to the Centennial Exhibition have selected the following-named gentle men who, together with the said Com missioners, will form a State Board of Managers for the State of California, to-wit: Jacob Deeth, B. B. Redding, A. N. Towne, John F. Stone aud T. J. L. Smiley, of San Francisco; Drury Melone, Secretary of State, for Sacra mento; Major R. Snyder, Sonoma; ex- Governor J. G. Downey, Los Angeles; James L. Ord, Santa Barbara; Walter Murray, San Luis Obispo; Jocob H. Neff, Placer county; Joseph Adams, Santa Clara county; J. L. Hebron, Salinas City; Bradley V. Sargeut, Monterey. This committee will have to care for the interests of the citizens of this State in matters relating to the Exhi bition; to disseminate information about it; to receive and pronounce on applications; to secure worthy and creditable exhibits, and insure the for warding of such exhibits; to provide funds to aid exhibitors at the Exhibi tion, by paying expense of transpor tation to and from Philadelphia, and other necessary expense, to enable our citizens who desire to make exhibits of their own manufacture and pro ducts of tbe soil and mine; and to su pervise such other details as the United States Centennial Commis sioners may delegate to it. The State Board of Managers has no connection with any other Board of the Centennial Commission in Cali fornia. —V. F. Chronicle, 9lh inst. Wheeler on Louisiana. New York, May 10th.—Hon. Wm. A. Wheeler, of the Louisiana Congres sional Committee, addreaaei a letter to the Timet \n answer to the question: " Is the Louisiana adjustment a suc cess or a failure?" lie says: "1 llrmly believe that Louisiana has at last caught inspiration from the neworder of things; that exhausted as Hhe is with tumult and Violence, yet with a just government and the education of her people, the hist just now her great est Deed, she, with a steady but slow pace, will emerge from what seems to be her utterly helpless condition. In regard to the reseating of four Demo crats in the House of Representatives, he says: "No one can be found in Louisiana to assert that at the time these four Democrats were ousted, there was no quorum of the House present; therefore, these four Demo crats had never been legally expelled from their seats. Having done no thing to forfeit them, their reinstate ment was an act of simple justice, which all fully understanding the fact must approve." The Brooklyn Scandal Trial. New York. May Bth.—Among the rumors relating to the Beecher trial is one to the effect that Mrs. Tilton is engaged in framing a statement for publication, in which she gives the facts which she intended to give on the witness stand. Mrs. Ovington, It is understood, will supervise the produc tion and assist Mrs. Tilton. After an other consultation yesterday, Tilton's lawyers decided to call Mrs. Woodhull ami perhaps her husband and sister. Beyond these, plaintiff has but few witnesses. The impression is gaining ground that the jury will disagree. Mrs. Woodhull has been notified that she will not be required to testify. She refused to tell her evidence, aud counsel do not want heron the witness stand. Murder in Nevada. Austin, May 10th.—There is great excitement In town to-day over the tragedy ena?ted tiiis morning at the Silver Cage rancho, a Loot ten miles from here, in which an Italian named Luigi Bordearce murdered John Beale, the foreman of the rancho, aud James McCreery, a teamster. The news was brought to town by N»poui Guizippi, partner of Bordearce, the two having been leesees of the rancho from G. F. Disimore, the owner. The Sheriff, Coroner and others went to the ranch and found the bodies of Beale ami McCreery, both with their heads crushed. Bordearce was no where to be found. Beale came here from Cerro Gordo, where he has mining in terests. Guizippi reports that all three were drunk and quarreling during the night and drove him from the house. When he returned in the morning he found matters as above stated. Some suspicion arises from the fact that Beale was a very steady man, who never was in the habit of drinking, and Bordearce is a very small, short man, unable to cope with Beale or McCreery, and in consequence Gui zippi has been locked up iv jail to await further developments. A Counterfeiter Sentenced. New York, May Bth.—George Al fred Mason, the counterfeiter, was sen tenced to 12 years in the Albany Peni tentiary, and one dollar flue to-day, by Judge Benedict in the U.

Washington, May 10th.— Investi gations made by order of the Secretary of the Treasury and Commissioner of Internal Revenue have resulted in the discovery of a ring engaged in the per fection of extensive frauds in the rev enue iv connection with distilleries in the West. The headquarters -of the ring are in Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Louis. A large number of officials will be dismissed for connivance aud neglect of duty. A number of the distilleries have been seized in Mil waukee. Light Wheat Crops East. Washington, May 10.— The wheat crop in Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas wiil probably average only five-eights of a full crop. In Pennsylvania, Ma ryland and Virginia it is better, but not a full crop. Its condition in some parts of New York is extremely unfa vorable. Russia and Germany. New York, May JOth.—Dispatches from Loudo,. and Paris yesterday re port that extreme uneasiness prevails, arising from the meeting of the Em perors of Germany and Russia. A inter dispatch mentions the rumor that the (Jzar intends to propose ageu eral disarming, and that Germany will support the pioposition. Those Turbulent Coal Miners. Pottsville, May 10th.—The miners in this vicinity threatened to kill those who continue work and to burn the works. The Enterprise Breaker at Excelsior was burned last night, it is supposed by an incendiary. Loss of Another Steamer. Victoria, May loth.—Some In dians who came down the coast in a canoe reported the loss of the steamer GJenora, which a few days since left this port for Fort Wrangel, Alaska,with a large freight and passenger list. As nothing further has been heard, and as the lo cality stated by them corresponds with that in which the Union was wrecked last Friday, it is thought that the In dians have got these two vessels mixed. No uneasiness is felt concern ing the safety of the Glenora. Negotiations for the Black Hills. Cheyenne, May 10th.—Red Cloud, Spotted Tail, and seventeen other Sioux chiefs arrived here to-day. They leave for Washington to-morrow to treat for the sale of the Black Hills. A San Francisco Blaze.

The lower floor was occu pied by a branch of the Miner's res taurant. The second story was occu pied by John Hoey, an upholsterer. The third story was a hall, occupied by several temperance organizations. The loss is about 10,000, and is partly covered by insurance. Brigham Beats One of His Wives.

Stabbing Affair at Marysville. Marysville, May B.—A stabbing affray occurred this evening at half past seven o'clock, in front of the United States Hotel, on C street, the particulars of which, as near as we can ascertain, are as follows: George Ever ett and William Nicklow were discov ered by the proprietor of the hotel en gaged in a tight in the room of Everett, Nicklow being on top and a penknife in his hand. The landlord separated them and took Nicklow to the street. Shortly after Everett followed, and as soon as he came out they rushed to gether. In an instant Nicklow reeled to the sidewalk, saying he was killed. Everett, after hiding his dirk-knife, gave himself up to the Chief of Police. Nicklow was stabbed in the abdomen. The blade of the dirk is six inches in length. The latest reports say Nick low cannot live, as he is bleeding in ternally. Everett recently returned to this place from San Quentin, where he had served a sentence of one year for shooting a man a little over a year ago in this place. NEW TO-DAY. A New Departure.
