superiority over any of her sister olties of the
West, and thatja her free library. Large ad
ditions to the old collections rendered a
thorough renovation neoesiaryi and for this
Jturpoae the library-rooms have been olostd
or some months past. Several thousand more
volumes are expected In a short time, which,
added to the present number, will inoreate it
to over two thousand five hundred. The al
ooves in the lower room only are yet cata
logued, and embrace 9,0.' 5 volumes, classified
as follows: miscellaneous, 801 j biography,
1,128; voyages and travels, 1,I72( divinity,

and mechanics, 871; scientific, 183; poetry and
drama, 755; general literature, 411; novels,
io., 72S; tales, 259. These volumes constitute
less than one-half of the library at present,
and, with the expected additions, will be bat
little over one-third.
Among the valuable wotka thus olaisifled,
are the complete works of Adams, Washing
ton, Jefferson and Franklin; Elliots's debates;
Preaoott'l and Bancroft's histories; Hume,
Gibbon, MoCanley; and, indeed, all the best

Among the lighter literature, are the works
of Sir Walter Soott, Washington Irving,

Purmd Shahp. John Wendrum, who
hails from St. Louis, arrived in this olty some
days since, and sought the Chief and a number
of polhe, and informed them that he was
"posted" in polioe matters, and eould "spot"
a number of peraona who had arrived in the
oity for the purpose of committing depreda
tions. He was immediately taken into fellow
ship, and told several plauiable stories. A
few slgbta sinoe he auooeeded in Inducing
Officers Leonard and Llppenoott to watch a
boarding-house on Fifth-street, assuring them
that apian was en foot to enter and rob the
same. The officers repaired to the spot desig
nated, and waited with patience the approach
of the robbers, but none appeared. About the
game hour designated, a burglary was com
mitted on Sixth-street, and the officers, believ
ing that Wendrum was a "sharper," arrested
him yesterday, and had him tried in the Police
Court on a charge of vagrancy. He was
recognised in the Court by a gentleman from
St. Louie as an old vagrant, and was sent
"over the way" by Judge Lowe for the space
of thirty days. His Daguerreotype adorns the
oolleotion of thieves In the Chief's offioe.
IIousb of Refcgr. Judge Lowe was again
compelled, yesterday, to perform what he
considered a painful duty that of separating
parents and children four boys, named
Martin Toohey, aged twelve years, Mioheel
Mara, aged fourteen years, John Burke,
aged ten years, and James Ilonlahan, aged
thirteen years, were charged in his Court
with straying from the West End to the
Seventeenth Ward, and pilfering from the
money drawer of a grooery keeper one dol
lar and twenty-five cents. They were each
sentenced to the House of Refuge until of
legal age. The parents of these children
appeared in Court, and tried hard to have
their children released, but all to no purpose.
Assault and Battkby, John MoDonald
and Ereklel Howard a regular aid substitute
constable were fined $3 and coats by Judge
Lowe, yesterday, upon a oharge of assault and
battery. It appears that these officers were
endeavoring to levy an attachment on the
property of a widow woman, who keeps a no
tion store on Seventh-street, between Main and
Sycamore; that her aon, lunatic, interfered,
when he was ohoked by the officers and other
wise badly treated; a bunch of keys were also
taken from his pooket. Judge Lowe thought
the officers had a right to do their duty as pre
scribed by law, but wag of opinion that they
went a little beyond.
Stbahwo Wbibxt lit Pisok. An old man
named Ferry, who has been confined in tho
City Prison for several weeks past, was before
Judge Lowe yesterday to answer the charge
of stealing from the prison a jug of whisky,
kept and used there by Dr. Webb, the Jail
Physioian, for medioinal purposes. He was
found guilty and sentenced to sixty days'
imprisonment in the same institution.
High wav Robbkbt. James Ford and John
Hannigan were arraigned in the Police Court
yesterday upon a charge of knocking down
and robbing a man named Jacob Wess, of $5
in silver ooin, and a gold chain, near Camp
Washington, on the 18th of last month. They
were held in bonds of $500 each to answer
next Wednesday.
Exposing His Ptasotr. A beast in human
form, named Matthew McMullen, was before
his Honor Judge Lowe, yesterday, to answer
the oharge of indecently exposing his person
in the presence of ladies. He was fined $20
and costs.
Plsad Guilty William Lewis plead guilty
in the Polioe Court, yesterday, to the charge
of stealing a gold cronometor watch from
Mrs. Malloy, on Front street. He was sent
to the County Jail for the term of four

OmrJiAL CUtbages. Tho aFsaull dommltted
by Officer Morton upon P. A. 0. Kemper, on Satur
day afternoon last, is of a more serious nature than
wewere aturat led to suppose. The exact causa of
the brutal attack we do not know, but the character
of the punishment inflicted Is worthy of the lowest
Baltimore rowdy. Mr. Kemper is an old man and
has been a resident of our city for a number of years,
and was of a very peaceful disposition, which makes
the assault even of a more outrageous nature than
otherwise. Officer Morton ran up behind Mr. K..
when near the oornsr of York and Bellevne, and
struck him several times with hla list, then pnahlug
him away, he dealt several blows with a thick and
heavycane, knocking him senseless. Upon examin
ation or the wounds It was found that three teoth
were cut and the head bruised very seriously. Yes

A New History of the United States.
A Britisher, who lately traveled all over this
country, while he staved in New Tork, went
home and got np a book of travels, whioh he
intends shall be a British history of the United
States. From one of the proof-sheets we have
been kindly permitted by the author to oonv
one of the ohspters. It Is late news, which
very tew or our readers nave ever read :
Summary Before I went to America. I had
beard much of Amerioan natural asenery ; I
came to see it for myself. I have traversed
the country from the eolonlal dependence of
Her Most Oraoious Majesty In Canada to the
Rocky Mountains, and I saw nothing that
could be called worthy of the artist's or poet's
observation. It is true that Canada has aome
charming; sooner, which has been muoh im
proved by British taste and art the natural
consequenoes of the refinement and cultivation
of the inhabitants ; but whenever one crosses
into the titatos, the country exhibits either
wild forests or naked prairiea, both of which
are dangerous to travel through, In oontequence
of the quantities of voraoious animals they
contain. A distinguished member of the
United states f arliament informed me that a
railroad train last year was attacked by a drove
of rsocoons, while orosiiog a prairie, and every
passenger destroyed. These raocoons are the
terror of this wild country, and hare depopu
lated thousands of miles of Its sutf&oe.
Thb California Gold Cbop Aooordlng to
the California Regitttr for 1869, there were in
operation in 1850, in fifteen oounties from which
information has been obtained, three hundred
and thirty-three quarts orushtne mills, the ma
chinery of which had cost $3,367,000.
The richest quarta vein In the State ia that
of Allison's Baoohe, whioh Is believed to be the
richest gold mines in tbs world. The first sixty
three tuna of quarts from this vein proluoeil
$22,000. The vein or lode, called lead by the
miners, was opened In 1SSS. The yield during
the ensuing two years was estimated at
$1,500,000. Eight thousand tuna of rook have
been crushed, whioh haa yielded $200 per tun.
Street 3c Sonlsby's claim, In Tuolumne County,
is supposed to oontain gold rook worth $4,009,
000. Colonel Fremont's Mariposa Rancfae
Mines are yielding him, it la estimated, $5,000
per week. The authorities adopted .by the
Regitler state the production to have been very
uniform ainoe 1854, at about $70,000 per
BST"Messrs. Tyndal and Frankland have
just made a suooessful tsoent of Mount Blanc.
On August 21, these two English savaos reached
the summit, where thoy plaoed their tent of
India-rubber on the south-side, and prepared
to pass the night, with the Intention of return
ing at ten o'clock the following morning, whioh
they accordingly did. Thus these two gentle
men sojourned on the summit of Mount Blano
for the space of twenty hours, with their three
guides and seven porters. Thus this hatard
oua enterprise, which waa the first attempt of
the kind whioh haa been made, waa happily
erowned with success. The party suffered
from violent attacks of headache, exactly re
sembling sea-aiokness in their effects, and from
whioh none of them were exempt.
Tub Wib abb Stiamer. The editor of the
Portlaed Argut, while at Baltimore, on Thurs
day last, made an excursion in her. He says
that "time occupied in this trip of thirty
four miles, waa just two hours and a half from
the time the fastenings were oast off from the
wharf until ahe waa again at her moorings and
we npon terra jlrma." . This must be consid
ered en admirable performance. When the
vessel was going at the rate of sixteen miles an
hour, there was soaroely any peroeptible jar,
and the disturbance of the water by the pass
age of the vessel was marvelouily slight . So
clean, indeed, waa her movement, that a skiff
would aoaroely have felt any agitation in
erossing ner wase.
the contemplated improve
ments at the Central Park, New Tork, are a
mammoth hotel on Fifty-ninth-street, at the
intersection of Broadway and the Eighth
avenue, which will have a front of upward of
two hundred and fifty feet on Fifty-ninth-street,
opposite the Park, and about two hun
dred and soventy feet on Broadway, which
lorms an angle at mat locality, and also a
front of about one hundred feet on Fiftv-
eighth-street. The computed cost of a
proper Duuaing, appropriately lurnished and
equipped, ia cue minion 01 aoiiors, wnicn in
cludes the cost of the land, which ia valued
at two hundred thousand dollars.
pS'lhe only inetanoe on reoord of a blind
man acquiring a proficiency in the game of
eness, is that of a Mr. Lumbloy, an English
man, who bas lately been astounding the Eng
lish olub by his skill. Ho has only been olav
Ing about two years and a half, and yet at the
Coventry Chess Clubs he conduoted three
games simultaneously, all of whioh, after a
oontest of four hours and a htlf, terminated in
his favor. At the Southampton Club he ner
formed the similar feat of playing three games,
winning Jbe first, drawing the second, and
losing the tcira, alter nearly four hoars play.
