L. Divine, tho foreman of the composing room of that paper, on tiie situation of San Francis co and the state of things that prevailed there in' 185G. 3Ir. Divine believes in coincidences, and, began the conversation by remarking that he"waniedDenis Kearney and'hU tand-lot he nas to keep up their howling until the 14th ot next May," which it teems will be the twenty-fourth anniversary of the culminating one of a long series of deeds ot robbery and blood which led to the formation of the famous Si ?aa ii r.ancisco. viari- lance, committee of 1856 At a theater one night in 1856 General Richardson, a .United States iiraifhal, looked long and earnestly through his opera glass at a beautiful and wealthy court esan named Bella Cora. The woman was "offended, and told her man, a gambler named Co ra, that bhe would not be satis fied until he.had killed Richard son. The gambler and the mar shal met at a: drinking place, and the latter, being taxed wth the insult, apologized.' The a- poloirv was accented and the " - T two drank together in token of tnenusuip; but they w had no sooner passed outside of the sa loon than Cora shot Richardson dead. Cora was arrested and put in jail by Sheriff Dave Scan- nell, a notorious jNew lork ruf fian; 'but there were ho hopes that he would be brought to tri al. The excitement following this murder would have. died a way, but directly thereafter on the 14lh day of May James King of William, editor of the Bulletin, which had declared war on the ruflians, was killed by Jim Casey, who had been denounced by King as a grad uate of Sing Sing. Casey, who gave himself ;ip to his friend the sheriff, apparently having little fear of punishment; 'be came the jail companion of Cora. The, news of that murder brought all of San Francisco to its feet. Business houses were closed, and merchants, mechan ics, the best citizens of every class, came out in the streets. There were men speaking at nearly every street corner, urg ing that the time had come for the people to take the law into their own hands. Mr. Divine made his first ami last speech on this occasion, at the corner of Merchant and" Montgomery streets. At the close of the speech he was told that he was wanted at a large warehouse on Sansom street, and going there, with others, he registered hi name as one of the vigilance committee and tool his number, which was 2,S95. The next morning all the papers except the Herald, printed by John Nu gent (whose death, by the way, is . jiist "announce denounced the kiiling of King. The Her ald was the leading democratic paper of the Pacific coast and its advertising patronage, was enormous; but it lost its 'power and patronage in a day and ap jieared thereafter as an . 8x10 sheet, the'organ of the ruffians, w ho were known, oddly enough, as the "law and order" party. The vigilantes met in a large hall the next two or three nights, elected ofiicers,and were divided into regiments. ..No man was called by name; each each had his number,- The force soon' numbered hx thousand men and was composed of cav alry , a rti I le ry , mo u n it edri flti meii , and infantry.

There were eix thousand stand of small arms and thirty cannon. A sloop loaded with arms was sent from San Fran cisco to the law and order party, but was seized by the viirilantes.

The mistress of Cora offered a reward of 100,000 to the man who should save the life of that person, but to ho -avail:" Mr. Divine says: , ci ' On the 22d day of May. Casey and Cora, after a fair trial,1 were hanged from the windows of lhe committee rooms. A beam of of: wood projected i'rom above each of the twV windows, from which dangled a rope. A plank was at the foot of', jiach) bP the two windows, and on each plank stood a condemned raanf Casey on one, Cora on the other. They were not blindfolded. The fu neral of King took place the same day. It was passing down Montgomery street just as the final arrangements in the trage dy in which these two men formed the awful central figures were being completed) Asfhe hearse crossed Sansom street, standing on the boards a tt .thg windows, their heads fn the noose, they, could plainly see the sombre vehicle as it drew its dreaded length along. As it crossed the street and reced ed from sight, the boards fell from beneath their feet. As a stroke of retributive justice, I1 hardly think that can be excell ed.

This- question, ac- on each other by mistake and cording to Tice-Chancellor W hasnever been tested un-! der English law. The circum-: stances which have now brought it to'trial are remarkable enough. In July, 1876, a man named De Tourville murdered his wife in the Austrian Tyrol, in such a manner that he hoped to divert suspicion from himself.

He had reason to suspect that she was acquainted ; with, the fugi ive's hiding-place,; so. the first thing to be done was to follow her on Saturday afternoon,. when she was free from her employ ment. An innocent young de tective, in the guise of a carpen ter, was told otf to. watch, and endeavor . to strike up an ac quaintance, in which design ho was not very successful, though hc.ascertained that Kingston was her destination that afternoon.' . To Kingston he wentj and traced her to a house occupied by an old man, about whom the neighbors knew; no more than that he was an old man. ; He was an elderly invalid, never went to the door, never went out, saw nobody; and how was he to be caught and examined? There wTas nothing known about him to justify the police in entering the house, and the detective walked round the place in company with the "carpenter," wondering what to do next.

P. Moore, on one occasion went out in front of our lines to ivc some water to a wounded Yankee, who was lying, in a helpless -condition upon the grounds. but lately -occupied by the Federal forces and ;.lrora which they had recently been di i ven. 4 The man was crying piteonsly for water, and the bul lets were rattling, around from both armies. Moore 6aid he-intended to risk the, exposure to do the deed of mercy and went out to him. ilt proved to be a captain of a Pennsylvania reg iment, who was profuse with thanks and offered Moore his gold watch, which the gallant Confederate declined. He beg ged for his name, that he might, if he 'survived the war, re member him. This he-wrote down in his memorandum book. The captain recently wrote here to know if Moore was living; said he was rich, but dying of consumption, and desired to provide for him in his will. Mr. Moore wrote to him and receiv ed a friendly letter in reply, telling him that there was 10, 000 set apart for his use, to be paid in installments of $2,000 each. The Federal oflicer has 6ince died, and the other day the payment of $2,000 was re ceived. Truly, 'tis 'Jgood to erive even a cup ot water in tnc right spirit 17 ' A Word for Boys.

Chili lottesvillo (V ) Chronicle. , ; We have heretofore published an account ol' a portrait suppos ed to have been photographed by lightning on "a pane of glass m an old farm-house in this county. Another instance of the same cu. rious phenomenon has been found in the . , window . of, the Mansion House, on the "Mount Eugle" farm, more gcnerallly ; known as the "Gentry place. . The por traits of four persons are plainly discernible-two men, a woman and a child. The faces are not all on one pane, that, of one the men and; the woman being on adjoining glasses, the face of the other man on another, and that of the chiid on one of the lower panes, and the theory is that the party, were all looking through the window, during a thunder storm, when a sudden flash of lightning by some mysterious process, instantaneously fixed their features on the glass. The existence of the portraitures are of comparatively recent discove ry, and have attracted many vis itors. . ' . ; ; V ' ."Still Booming. .'The advance in the price of printing paper .ia .one of the most remarkable features of the recent revival, and falls heavily upon alljhe newspaper men. Since November, the price , has risen fully seventy-live per cent. A bill of paper that cost two hundred dollars four months ago, wouldnow cost three hun dred and fifty.

As we re call the scenes of domestic wretchedness, the heartless neg- feet, the pining want, the brutal violence, to say nothing of tho many brutal murders m cold blood, which almost daily are brought to light bv the public, of drunken husbands and falhers, we must believe there are,behind all these, experiences of untold woe which are known only to the silent suf- 'erers and the all-sceiDg One, The fortitude and the enduring patience with which these trials have often been borne, are ama zing, and only add to the claims which the sufferers have upon the heartfelt sympathy of every right feeling mind.
