Wk learn from Uen. Stonemau bat tbe prospects of satisfactory eglslation on freights ami fares Iras never better at Bacramento ban it is to-day. Tbe Railway Company is thoroughly alarmed; and, from the energy of its opposi tion, we may judge of the firmness of the purpose to redeem the Dem ocratic pledge for an equitable freights and fares bill. Tbe Dem ocratic Board of Transportation Commissioners have done their work conscientiously. Should their several bills be enacted into law, no State in the Union would present a railway system so en tirely under the control of local legislation as California. As be tween Railway corporations and the people tbe principle of " live and lot live" it the true one. We are willing to let corporations earn fair dividends, bnt tho population whoso servitors they are supposed to b* should not languish to admit of this. Wo should like to see our Paclflo Coizi Railways, for once, ' try tbe plan of gauging what would bo the affect of a policy which > should aim strictly at development, With immediate profit to tbe rail ways as the secondary idea. How- OTsr unpromising the result might be for a few months, we are con vinced that a year or two of such a policy, through the stimulated settlement, growing confidence and accompanying prosperity of the State, would pay our Railways much better than under the pres ent regime. Then, besides, tbey would find that discontent had vanished and that hatred and dis trust were replaced by universal good humor. The experiment would certainly be worth tbe trial. If the results should prove to be unsatisfactory the railways could face the Califor nia Legislature with infinitely stronger arguments than are now available. We are quite willing to admit that California is a sparsely settled State, aud that rates both for fares and freights should be relatively hlgb. Take, for Instance, the stretch of couutry between Los Angeles and Mojave aud Los Au geles and Yuma, aud compare it with any equal extent nf country radiating from New York City. There are a thousand people who avail themselves of railway facili ties on the one to a single person who dees so ou the other. From this standpoint tlie position of the railway people is almost impreg nable. But there is another view of the question which should re ceive a careful consideration. A tourist or intending settler can travel first-class from Sau Francis co to Portland, hy steamer, a dis tance of 616 miles, for $7 50, while, by rail, it costs him to go from San Francisco to Los Augeles, a distance of considerably less than five hundred miles, nearly $30. The question Is, would not the carry four people to Southern California, where they now carry one, if the rates were half the present schedule? We be lieve tbey would, and that the set tlement following on the heels of such travel would build up a remu nerative business for the road. If we cannot get tbe railway compa nies themselves to try such exper iments, it is right that they should be initiated by tlie Legislature. We should have the satisfaction of knowing, at least, that we could take the "back track" if the result did not confirm the manifesto. England quite apparently don't know what to make ofthe Eastern question. Kussia seems to know how to settle the matter altogether without advice from Madame Britannia. Tlie telegraph advises us that the British fleet was or dered to proceed from Besika Bay to the Dardanelles. Before it had quite reached the Dardanelles it was ordered to return to Besika Bay. This whole episode remark ably resembles a historical eveut described by Dryden, In which the King of France participated. The lines read: The King of France, with forty thousuuil meu, .Marcb'd up tbe kill aud then march,] down again. The British lion may rulHe his mane and emit his loudest roar, but th* European world evidently look upon blm as a sort of modern "Bottom." The people of Loa Angelea have always taken n warm aud cordial Interest in the development ot every portion of what they have been fondly wout to describe as their " back couutry." We regret to say that the signs Just now do not point to auy remarkable degree of activity in that portion of it known as Inyo county. Tbe fact is that Mono county, and that por tion of Mono couuty known aa "Bodie," a place about two hun dred aud sixty miles]north-west of Darwin, seem to attract all the interest, of late. The supplies for " Bodie " go by way of the Central Pacific Baiiway, via Beno, so that If we had succeeded in getting tba tirf* Angalea aud Independence Railway built to tbe Cajon, and bad tunneled through the Cajon Pass to the edge of the desert, the iuterprise might not, after all, hart proved of a very profitable kind. Now, at least, we would have found both freighting and passenger business to aud from Inyo couuty exceedingly dull. But one furnance iv ull the ample lim its of that couuty is running now. Panamint is no more, with a record of $1,700,000 sunk Irrecoverably. We heartily hope that we are des tined to chronicle uo more such un pleasant developments. It is noteworthy that tlie fall in the premium of gold has taken place in spite of the expected pas sage of legislation such as is out lined In the Stanley Matthews silver resolution. If we were to credit the New York newspapers, which are ruu entirely in the inter est of the bondholding and capital ist classes, the wreck of matter and the crash of worlds would be expected to follow any such legis lation. Tho fact is that, with sil ver remonetized, and with thu in terest ou the Natioual debt paid, at the option of the Government, iv silver, investment in United States bonds, with their comparatively high rate of interest, is a very en ticing thing to inhabitants of a country positively glutted with money. As compared with Turkish, Peruvian and the score of other bonds which have been largely dealt iv by British capitalists, tbey are positively nonpareil. The Associated banks of New York are beginning to seriously oontemplate the establishment of a day ou and after which all their transactions will be on a gold basis. The margin between paper money aud speoie is becoming so small that suoh action hardly appears to be premature. What effect tbe imminent remonetizitlon of silver will have on such a programme at this day is a fruitful scheme for speculation. It seems to us that there are, for the coming six month or a year, elements of un usual fluctuation iv tlie busiuess affairs of the United States. If, silver bill and all, the jump should be made, and we should prove to have landed gently aud and without auy perceptible jar, all the elements of an unusually vigor ous busiuess revival wuuld exist iv the United States. Hydraulic mining will receive a great impetus iv California this year, owiug lo the immense quan tities of snow on the Sierras, thus guaranteeing abundant water. If the Stute was able to make a cred itable exhibit duriug the past year of drouth, she ought to be able to roll up a spleudid record the cur rent year. The telegraph advises us that the Eiectiou Committee of the House have reported in favor of Wiggin ton as Representative of the Fourth Congressional District of Califor nia. Their verdict will doubtless be ratified by a party vote iv the House. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. lHpociul t<» ilia Herald by the Western Uuluu Telegraph Company.] Pacific Coast News.

Latest Eastern news. KINWRESaIONAI. Washinoton, Jan. 28.—Shnate —The morning hour wa* occupied la tbe presentation of petitions re monstrating against tha reduction of certain tariff duties and tba res toratlon of the lax on tea, coffee, etc., all of which were referred. Voorhees presented petitiousof Citlieus of New Albany, Indiana, in favor of thu reniouetizutiou of silver and the repeal of the specie resumption act. Referred. The Vice-President laid before the Senate tho memorial of the California State Senate relating to the policy and menus of excluding Chinese from the United States. Referred to tlio Committe on For eign Relations. Booth presented the petition of citizens of California opposing any further legislation to aid tha Southern Pacillo Railroad. Anthony, from tho Committee on Printing, reported favorably the Hou9e amendment to the bill to further regulate the purchase of material for public printing and binding. The amendment was con curred iv and the bill passed. Dorsey, from the Committee on the District of Columbia, reported adversely the petition asking for an investigation regnrtliug the sale of intoxicating liquors in tlie Dis trict of Columbia aud the Commit tee was discharged from its further consideration. Bills introduced: By Ingalls, to reimburse Kansas, Texas, Ne braska and Colorado tor expenses incurred in repelling iuvasiousaud the suppression of Indian hostili ties. Keferred. Morrill argued that to sustain silver would cost annually one per cent, for abrasion, while the abra sion of gold is oue-twentieth of one percent. It would cost one-four teeuth more per cent, to coin silver than gold. To allow duties to be paid in silver would be grantiug a heavy boon to foreign industry without any advantageous equiva lent. The labor of this country should be paid in the best money the world affords. It was advisable to obtain tbe co-operation of other leadiug nations in fixing upou a common ratio of value between gold and silver before embarking upon independent and final aotion. After Morrill closed Wallace got . the floor for debate to-morrow. Allison presented a communica tion from Secretary Schurz regard lug the removal of the Kickapoo Indians to the Indian Territory. , Referred.

Cannon, tbe Mormon delegate in Congress, had a bearing before the House sub- Committee on Territories to-day, io opposition to tba Utah election bill, giving the people of that Ter ritory tbe seoret ballot aud disfran chising polygamists and women. Cannon d*nled the existence of the union of stute aud church and declared tbe demand on Congress for a frae ballot to be without rea son iv fact, as those non-Mormons who are making auch demand are simply carpet-bagger* aud adven turers. Dr. Mary Walker protested agaiust Congressional Interference with Mormon polygamists on tbe ground that tbe Utah system of marriage, from a physiological standpoint, is an Improvement on Monogamy and a more enlightened phase of tbe social evil. Mrs Spen cer, a strong woman's rights advo cate, base* her objections to dis franchising the polygamista in Utah on the grouud tbat It would ba in bad taate for tha Congress of the United States, which she de clared to be composed iv part of practical polygamlsts, to interfere with the Mormorns. It ii understood tbat tbe comm.li te* will soon report tbe bill. Under date of January 26th, Col. Nelson A. Miles telegraphed to Gen. Terry that, on Dec. 23d, Sit ting Bull crossed the b jrder aud is now, with 500 lodges, ou American soil. He recommends that a well equipped force be sent agaiust him. General Sherman to-day re ceived a dispatch from Gen. Sheri dan Btating that the reported cross ing of Sittiug Bull into United States territory was not confirmed; but, should the rumor prove true, he will at once dispatch troops to Gon. Miles at Ft. Keogh. The subscription to the four per cent, loan to-day aggregated about $600,000. Eight banks wore to-day designated as depositories in addi tion to those already engaged iv receiving deposits. IKS Kvmi* ISO Inv Preeiueu; to sis*. Washington, Jan. 2sth.— The House to-day passed the Matthews silver resolution. Autlrre«u'» Objrcllon tv tbe Panel New Orleans, Jau. 28th.— Geu. Anderson thus explains why bl desires a change of venue aud hii resistance to the State authorities My information regarding the characterof tho panel was such a.s to convince me that it was organ ized to convict without reference to the testimony iv my behalf or the absence of testimouy against me. I believe that If 1 had appeared on Friday last I would have been tried aud convicted before Satur day night: not because I am guilty of the act charged, or that any evi deuce implicating me in it could have been found, but because f be lieve it was so determined anil ar ranged iv advance. Look, for in stance, at this list of the names of the persons composing the panel. [Here Ueu. Auderson presented a printed list containing 40 names.] I have searched tbat list diligently and cau find on it the name of only one persou, Mr. Becker.with whom I have any personal acquaintance, but lam told and believe it to be true, that not only does this list not embrace one single colored man, but there is uot one Republi can In it from beginning to end. Does any fair-minded, impartial man believe that, before a jury thus made up, I could have any nssurauce of an impartial trial. I am willing to submit to the impartial judgment of any fair minded man tbat this studied ex clusion of Republicans from the panel is au outrage on every princi ple of justice aud that it gives me the right to say that the jury is organized expressly to convict. Under these circumstauces my right of challenge could be of no avail. I have twelve challenges and when these are exhausted, the character of the panel would re maiujust what it was before. I was entirely ignoraut of tlie Vernon Parish matter, the record will show that I was not present. The Vernon returns were opened iv the pres ence of the visiting statesman. The certified reports of bath parties show that these returns appear to have beeu passed over to the clerks for tabulation without remark and when they were presented to me for signature, I signed them as I did those of every other parish. As a matter of course I had no idea and had no reason to suspect that any alteration bad been made in them. I was surprised when the matter was called to my attention before tlie Congressional Committee nnd I testified then that I knew noth ing about it. lb i Rt'lumluir Board Trials com lueneed. New Okleans, Jan. 28th.—Ke turniug Board Anderson, Case nave aud Kminor were brought to the bar to-day. Counsel for An dersou filed a motion for a cbauge of venue, alleging that he could uot bave a fair trial in this parish, the prejudice against him having iucreased in the last few days. The defense took a bill of exceptions. The Attorney-General renewed his motion for a severance in the trial of the acoused aud said the State had wished to try the case of Wells first, but as he was absent be would move to call up tbe case of Anderson. Judge Collum, counsel for the defense, opposed the motion for severance, as it would only be det rimental to the accused, depriving them of theircombined peremptory challenges. The Court granted the motion for severance, and the case of the State vs. Thomas C. Anderson was fixed fur trial. The impanneling of the jury then proceeded. Minister f'osaet'a Returu — Writs for eJoutenins. Nkw Orleans, Jan. SBtb.— John W. Foster, 17. B. Minister to Mex ico, arrived to-day by steamship and left for Washington this even ing. He expects to return to Mex ico in about two weeks. Judge Whittaker ordered writs for contempt to issue against chief Deputy Marshal Wirzburger and special agent Tomliuson, made re turnable at 10 o'clock to-morrow, for molesting tbe Sheriff in the arrest of the Returning Hoard. Keveuue OOlecre Ailaelted. Atlanta, Jan. 28th.—Four un known meu yesterday morning at tacked Deputy U. 8. Marshal Mur phy and assistants, who had cap tured three men near tbe city.

FrlullusT Prtsi luvencor lleud. Norfolk, Jan. 28th.—George P. Gordon, the printing press inventor died yesterday. European Cable News. Ouljr aViiMof CoanJeace. LoNpoN, Jan. 28th.—Sir Stafford Northeote said In Parliament this afternoan tbat no intimation bad yet been received that the armis tice was signed. The peace pro posals were not yet officially known, but had been communicat ed as authoritative by Count Sehouvaloff, tba Russian Ambassa dor. They are mainly tha same aa those printed this morning. He would express no opinion 'which might be used Tor the guidance of th* country, but he considers the terms are of a very sweeping cbar aot*r of autonomy for Bulgaria that was uot agreed upon by the Constantinople Conference. Ad ministrative autonomy was then oonceded. Now I hero is provided a total separation from Turkey, un der a Prince. Regarding tributa ries becoming independent, he would *ay nothing, but it must raise difficult questions, since it touches other interests. The in demnity condition is very elastic. Hew Russia may elect to take in demnity and v> hat territory she may ask, are highly important to Europe. European concert is therefore necessary. The under standing is that the strait may mean something or nothing, but it is an European and English lu tereet. The credit asked for was not connected with sending a fleet to the Dardanelles, but Is a pre liminary mensure that England may appear at the Congress that muilassemble with tbe pioperpres tige. The Government asks for credit as a vote of confidence so that it cau still firmly enter the Congress, The Marquis of Hartingtou asked, eiuce a vote of coutldeuc* was wanted, that debate tie ad journed to Tuesday. Can Enter aa nu All?—l'eaee to be nlurucil „v riihiiliui Territory. Pkua, Jan. 28th.—-The Porte per sisted iv his determination uot to permit the British fleet to enter the Dardanelles except as un ally. England lias informed the Porte that the fleet must enter without permission. The Porte entered a formal protest, which was for warded to the Plenipotentiaries at the Russian headquarters, but did not actually oppose the entry. Peace will be signed on Russian territory. the Peace Negotiations. London, Jan. 28th.— The Times says that part of the Russian army will embark at Constantinople for home. A special dispatch says the Rus sian demands will encounter seri ous opposition from England and Austria. The latter is opposed to the retrocession of Ressarabia ami to any conditions doing more than to cripple Turkey. The Cabinet Council on Sunday determined to persist with the de maud for a supplementary vote. The summoning of the Cabinet Council on Sunday is regarded as au indication that the political at mnsphero is not clearing. Up to nine o'clock last,night the Porte had not beeu advised ot the conclusion of an armistice, though orders were telegraphed to the Plenipoteutaries ou Friday to ac cept tlie preliminaries of peace. The delay causes apprehension that the armistice may be accom panied by onerous conditions. The Russians, Servians, Roumanians and Mouteuegrius are pushing mil itary operations with great vigor. Suleiman Pasha's army contin ues to embark. Six Egyptian transports have beeu ordered to Karota to assist iv the operation. Up to Saturday evening Safvut Pasha, acting Minister, persisted in his refusal to inform Layard, British Ambassador, of the tei ms of peace, showing that the Porte has been pledged to keep thorn secret. The Atlionlni,* Unite for War. Athens, January 28.—Warlike manifestations were renewed on Sunday hy crowds of people shout ing outside the residence of the Minister. The mob was-dispersed by troops after some shots were fired Three of tbe rioters were wounded.

The bill is regared as the first step towards the appointment of a German Min ister acting independently of the Chancellor, but under his leader ship aud having also a scat in the Federal Council.

This might mean a menace tp Persia or Kug land, against botli of whom the Ameer is hostile. Hitherto, in con sidering the possibility of a Hus eian iuvasion of India, Knglishmeu have been accustomed to look upou Afghanistan as an ull but invinci ble barrier between Kuglish terri tory and Hussiaii aggression, whereas now, fur all military pur poses, that barrier has ceased to exist.
