Who wrote the poetry entitled " First Love," the first line of which reads,"Whoni first we love, you know, we seldom wed" ? We had the im pression that it was the production of "Owen Meredith," Bulwek's sou; but we notice Ihe lines reproduced in a late number of the Call and credited to Julia Ward Howe. Whom Hist we loved we remember very well. She was a little freckled-faced, golden haired elf, to whom we used to give half of our dinner and all of our speckled marbles at school some years ago. She expanded to one hundred and forty pounds.developed a retrousse nose and married a railroad conductor. But who wrote "Whom first we love" is what is troubling us just now. Death of Jesse D. Bright. Jesse D. Bright, a man of national fame, died at Baltimore a few days ago. He was a native of Norwich, Shenango county, New York, where he was born on the 18th of December, 1812. His public life commenced in the State of Indiana, where he prac ticed law and was State Senator and Lieutenant-Governor. The State in his day was strongly Democratic and being an ardent supporter of that par ty's principles his talent and oratory soon made him a leader. He repre sented the State in the United States Senate three terms, commencing in 1845. In 1862 charges of disloyalty were preferred against him, based on the evidence that in 1861 he wrote a letter to Jefferson Davis, President ofthe Confederate States, recommend ing or introducing a person who was desirous of furnishing the Confederacy with arms. On this charge he was expelled from the Senate on the 2d of February, 1802, by a vote of 34 to 14. From that time he took no active part in politics. Fire Where There is Smoke. Every now and then one of San Francisco's blackmailing newspapers will make an attack on oue of her many prominent citizens who have millions of mouey, and forthwith all the other newspapers, not many of whom are a whit more honest but who do not happen to be in with that particular attempt to extract hush money, rush to the rescue and de nounce the attacking journal as an in famous blackmailing concern that has sunk so low that it does not scruple to blacken the character of honest men. Now we do not question the truth of any part of this except the " honest men" clause. An honest man with a large bank account who stands among the king-pins of the community is a difficult subject to blackmail, Con scious of hi.s own rectitude, he has nothing to fear from the slanders of a newspaper, ami to its insinuations that he has swindled a widow or robbed an orphan, he simply points to his record. Iv a community whose leading citi zens are composed entirely of honest men, blackmailingnewspapers are not a success. Their attacks do not bring the longed for check, they die out and the honest man smiles over the grave of his calumniator. San Francisco does not seem to be entirely made up of honest men, and, if we can believe their statements of each other, fully one-half of her newspapers owe their existence to successful blackmailing. If those prominent citizens were really honest men, attacks would not hurt and vehement defense would be unne cessary. Better still, those blackmail ing journals would find themselves iv the position of the Moor after he smothered his wife. A Sensible Suggestion. The question of irrigation comprises not only how we can best utilize the waters of our rivers, but to utilize it, will ultimately become the absorbing topic of discussion throughout, the State. This year there is more said on the subject than ever before, and next year more will be said than this. So we shall go ou talking and suggest ing, realizing more and more year by year the absolute necessity for doing what we all want to do and what we are all trying to think how to do, un til some practical plan is hit upon and then will come the consummation so devoutly wished. Among the multi farious plans and suggestions already offered, we regard that of our corres pondent, "J. G. D.," whose commu nication appeared some days ago, as possessing more of the elements of practicability and better calculated to insure the greatest good to the great est number, than any other. The great danger to be guarded against is that of preventing the monopolization of the water by private corporations. If the ownership of our Jakes and riv ers is once vested in individuals, the foundation is laid on which to build the castle of discrimination and op pression. If a company or corpora tion own the waters of an irrigation district, they hold a power over the soil tillers of that district which may be used for purposes of extortion, po litical supremacy or the gratification of personal animosity. The individ ual absorption of water rights which belong to the State, now steadily go ing forward, cannot but be productive of great wrong to posterity and we regard It as much the duty of our State authorities to protect these rights as it Is to collect the revenue for the maintenance of the State Gov ernment. The position of "J. G. D.," that the lakes and rivers within her borders are the property of tbe State, is so strong that it cannot be contro verted. Spain reserved this right and ceded it with the territory. It passed with California In the transfer of that territory from Mexico to the United States. The only intrench ment on this law which the records will boar out is the Pueblo right which the Mexican Government in a few instances granted, of which tbe right of Los Angeles city to the water of Los Angeles river is one. If, then, the State asserts and maintains her ex clusive ownership to the waters of all her lakes and rivers, the first and most important step toward tlie in auguration of a State system of ine gation is accomplished. The next is the placing of the entire management of the work in the hands of the Sur veyor-General, who will survey md superintend the digging of ditches where the waters they shall convey will be most productive of desirable results. After the formation of dis tricts, the people will elect officers, who, under the direction of the State Surveyor, will -keep in repair the ditches and dispose of the water. If we follow out this idea in detail, it will not be difficult to show that all this can be accomplished without the issuance of bonds, and that while so utilizing her water, she will annually add millions to her products. Even if there is no revenue from this source, the return in the increased value of taxable properly will more than pay the expense of completing the sys tem. Timely Warning. The Military advantages.of Los An geles have Men proverbial throughout the State. Kverywhere they once spoke of this city as a healthful place. We would tie glad to record that the facts would sustain this reputation now and in future, but we are afraid we cannot do so. Nature has done everything for us, and did we but avail ourselves of onr natural advantages our sanitary condition would remain as in the past -the best in California. The want of sewerage Is impairing the health of the whole city, and unless the evil is remedied it will not belong before miasmic fevers and endemic diseases will be as common iv Los An geles as in Sacramento and other not thoroughly drained cities. Los Ange les is a city grewh from an old Span ish town. Its sewerage, though with out plan or system, was sufficient for all practical purposes while the popu lation did tot exceed a few thousand, but now Hha£ we have a city of fifteen thousand and are growing rapidly, the old drains and ditches are not equal to the demand upon them, and the result is cesspools and foul blots In such number that iv any other cli mate than this an epidemic would sweep the city. Sickness, especially among children, is becoming common and parents aro growing anxious .or the safety of their little ones. There is no doubt but that the greater portion of the sickness prevailing In this city is due to imperfect sewerage. When in San Francisco a few weeks ago, the editor ofthe Herald heard a gentle man who had spent several weeks in this city and who had visited us for the purpose of making his home here, assert that Los Angeles was tlie poor est drained city he had ever seen, and he believed that but for the sea breeze which fanned itdaily no one could live there. This is a strong indictment, and the worst of it is it contains too much truth. This city is expanding 'rapidly—more rapidly than any other place iv the State outside of San Francisco—and we talk of having from 40,000 to 50,000 people here within the next few years. Such statements as above quoted will not aid us in the acquisition of that population and unless we do something to controvert such statements, we have attained the maximum of our growth. What that something should be is the point to be reached. In the opinion of our best engineers and of many citizens who have given the subject much study, the first step toward the estab lishment of an adequate system of sewerage is the construction of a main sewer from the city to tide water. How this may be done best and cheap est is subject matter for the considera tion of all. That we shall have to build such a sewer sooner or later is ascertain as the sun shines. We are now expending a large sum of money in puttingdown sewers here and there, but they run nowhere and will never drain the city until a main sewer Is provided with which to connect all side drains. We may as well meet this difficulty now. It must be met and overcome or we shall suffer at home and the fair fame of our city will be tarnished abroad. Starvation in Missouri. St. Louis, May 24th.—A Sedalia dispatch says three members of a family named Finley died from star vation in Cooper county last week.
