The elegant park phaeton, described yesterday in our notice of Page & Gravel's establishment, is the prop erty of Mr. Louis Wolfskill and does honor to his taste and liberality. Marshal Carrillo's docket shows 136 arrests during May, an increase of 37 over the April docket. This fact speaks volumes for the activity and efficiency of the Marshal and his force.

Gould is a candidate for the office of County Auditor. Charlie knows all about the duties of the place, aud, what is more, he is capable of dis charging them to the satisfaction of the people. Mr. J. M.

Officer Thomas was kicked so badly on Wednesday night as to lay him up; yet his brutal assailant was handled gently and delivered in good order at the calaboose. We are aware that prisoners should be well treated, but we know of no law compelling an offi cer to receive brutality without resist ance. When a prisoner is kindly treated he should be compelled to be have himself, and officers should be protected in life and limb. COMMON COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS.

In the leading Eastern markets for bread stuffs during the past week the bears have held control and prices been depressed. This has been accomplished easily by two means —the tightness of the money market and bo gus dispatches announcing that tbe crops in the great grain regions of the valley of the Mississippi and Missouri would not be injured by grasshoppers. Of course, so long as the depression in finances exists there will be a natural tendency to low prices in tlie grain market, but It is now ascertained beyond a doubt that the grasshopper plague of the Northwestern States is more disastrous than at any time since 1867. Western Missouri and lowa are rendered desolate by the plague and Kansas and Nebraska have experienced al most as severe a visitation. The wheat and corn crop from these productive regions must necessarily bo quite short, so that the bears cannot long hold their grip on the Eastern grain markets. Advices from Europe indicate a light crop and there has been quite an increase in ex portation from New York owing to this fact and the low prices ruling. In Austria and Hungary much of the wheat had to be plowed up. In Baden it was hoped the last rain might benefit the grain. Prussia reports many farmers plowing tholr fields over, owing to the hopeless outlook. Tho heavy snow In Russia melted slowly, and farmers had no chance to commence work early. Summer rye, wheat, barley and oats have suffered badly. The following reports will show the condi tion of crops In California: Butte County—The late rains have proved of incalculable benefit, to the farmer.as It will assist the late sown grain heading out. There Is every promise now of a good harvest. Colusa—The headers have been busy for two weeks, and fields are turning out much better than was expected. The harvest is lhe earliest ever seen in that valley. On Thomas' Creek from Tehama grain never looked bet ter. Contra Costa—All the well cultivated fields are exceeding the farmers' expectations, but late sowed or poorly cultivated grain will yield a very small crop. The central and Western districts will turn out an average yield. The farmers are cutting the barley and wheat will be ready for reaping before the early harvest Is over. Kern—The harvest is most promising, the grain ripening well without Irrigation. Well cultivated crops are turning out a usual yield Lake—Tbe late sown grain will give an av erage crop, owing to the late rains. A fair crop is expected from the early sown crops. Merced —Ln>-ge quantities of hay have been cut In volunteer fields and Winter-sowed and Summer-fallowed fields will yield fair crops ofwbsatand barley. Tne prospect for a fair yield Is good, though the average will be be low last year. Montebky—On the uplands from Castro vllle to the Muneras Ranch the prospect is good for an average crop, and It is now esti mated that the crop will fall but little below last year. Last year there were 44,000 tons of grain shipped from this valley, and the grain for shipment this year will not be much less. Napa —Haying has commenced in good earnest; weather good. Ihe frost and North wlud did no material damage, except to a few fields of fallowed grain. Pi.acek—The early grain looks well and may make a two-thlrps crop. The best Judges estimate the general yield at a three-fifths crop. The late sown is in some places light, bat all will make something. Solano —Around Rio Vista the crops will be better than last year. In the vicinity of Dixon and Vacaville there will bea fair yield. The harvest has commenced and everybody is busy. Sonoma—The corn crop looks well, with a large acreage. Wheat will be better than an tlcipated. The fruit In places will be a fail ure. There will be some pea'-hes, a few plums anda falrcropof apples, but noqulaces and very few pears. Sutter —The crops compare favorably with last year. Many fields of wheat and barley will average at least forty bushels to tho acre and aone less than twelve. The farmers have begun heading their barley and many art ready to begin on the wheat fields. Tehama—The crops are a little short, but many fields will be an immense yield. A number of farmers report over forty bushels to the aero. Tulare—The se-son has been unfavorable, but thousands of bushels will be harvested where a failure was anticipated a few weeks ago. Y«lo—About a two-third crop Is expected. Harvest has been commenced. THE GRAIN MARKET. Chicago has accumulated 5,000,000 bushels of wheat, which speculators are holding for an expected rise. The Illinois crop is estimated at one-half of the average, yet the tendency of prices in Chicago is downward. In San Francisco quotations are as follows: FLOUKr—SS 80. WHEAT-81 50(311 70. BARLEY—II 37k(tjl 85. OATS-il 90@2 17>,. WOOL. Tiie New York and Boston markets have been dull, owing to anticipated heavy receipts of California Spring. Tho following transac tions have taken place in New York: One hundred and fifty thousand pounds new Spring California, at 22<aj24 cents lor short and hurry lots, and :ji> •<. cents for choice free; 75.000 lbs. do. old stock at 28&30 cents; 100,000 lbs. Fall do. at ecUs; 3,008 bags s<-oured at f«...7ii cents. Boston reports as follows: i'a 11 torn in wool has been arriving quite freely, md the stock Is now increasing quite rapidly. Sales have been large, comprising 430,000 lbs., at 22@38c. for Spring and for Fall. Some of the recent arrivals have been ofa very handsome quality, and In con sequence a higner range of prices has been sustained. Although the market is consid ered easier for this description, to buy, and there is more pressure to sell, good average lots will not bring over 30mS2c. up to 34c. for choice; and any advance on the fatter rate is obtained only for fan y lots. OUR LOCAL MARKETS. Our mills are doing a fair business, and the outlook for a good crop is very encouraging to farmer* and millers. Our market rates are only slightly above San Francisco figures for flour and grain. ■ LUMBER MARKET. With the large number of improvements now in operation and many more under con tract, the lumber trade shows no appreciable falling off. We are Informed by Perry,Wood worth A Co. and Griffith, Lynch A Co., who control the lumber market here, that there is every prospect of a brisk Summer and Fall season, The quotations of last week hold good. LIVE STOCK. Oood stock is scarce, but farmers are begin ning to learn the Importance of improving their breeds of stock. We may reasonably expect in a short time to see a decided im provement in the quality of the stock coming to this market. Our pastures are uuexcelled on the coast, and our great herds should take a prominent place in the stock annals of the State. The following are the qotations: Cattle dressed, Sc.: hogs, 5(u5%c. gross; sheep 81 60@82each; milch cows, 830 « $00. THE RETAIL MARKET. No change in the price of staple groceries. Butter is becoming more plentiful at 30 cts for good to 25 cts. for Inferior. Oranges and lemons are scarce and hardly quotable. Eggs are iv good supply at 30 cents per dosen. Vegetables are plenty at fair prices, and small fruits, principally strawberries, are coming down in price within the reach of the masses. The Bazaar, corner of Main and Re quena streets, has just received an Im mense stock of new goods, consisting of clothing, dry goods, hoots, shoes, hats, etc., which they will sell at bot tom prices. Call and examine their stock. ml ANNOUNCEMENTS. FOR COUNTY TAX COLLECTOR.
