Herald Steam Printing House. Tne Herald sieam Printing House Is not surpassed by any Job Printing office oa tbe Pacific Coast, outside or San Fran otsco, in faotlltles for doing job work Low prions, good work and expedition amy be relied upon at this office. Where the ... Comes From Wblle we don't regard tbe chan ces as imminent tbat Mr. Hayes will be turned out of the White Houee, such an event is by uo ■MM impossible. With one mem bar of the Louisiana Returning Board already employed at bard labor ln tho penitentiary, and with Walls and the others on tbe way tc keep him company, damning de velopments are liable to be reported at any moment. Finding tbat the President is powerless to protect him, Wells may find his tongue, Facts may at any time come out that would compel the American Congress, in very self-respect, tc take action on the greatest pollti cal crime, unaccompanied by vio lence, which was ever perpetrated under the form of a Constltutiona: government. Who would have predicted, oue short year ago, that tbe very men who mad* Hayes President would, after a few months, hate him witr - sTO ititeuaity compared with whict their antagonism ,to Tilden is i colorless and dead feeling? Yet tbat is precisely tbe way the cast stands to-day. Such men ai Chandler and Cameron can hardly contain their tempers when Hayes's name is mentioned. Senator Conkling, in a pitched battle, has brought a Republican Senate to join him in a terrible rebuke to theFresident elected by themselves. Old Ben Butler and old Beu Wade both express tbe most unmeasured contempt for Hayes, while Cham berlain, Kellogg, Packard, and the Inne line of Radical Republicans who sympathize with them, have declared war to the knife, and Ihe knife to the hilt, against the fraudulent President. It now appears quite probable that Wm. i itt Kellogj, the fraudulent United States Senator from Louis iana, will be in the field with his little revelations. The following Washington dispatch from the spe cial correspondent of the New York .Sun indicates that a new cause for anxiety exists for Hayes. Con stant dropping will wear a stone, it is said, and we suspect that the pleasure Hayes anticipated from his unjustly acquired office is turned to gall by that drift of pub lic opinion which ceaselessly busies Itself lv discussiug the infa mous means by which be became President. The correspondent writes: The $20,000 which Wm. Pitt Kel logg is being pressed to pay to the Union National Bank of Chicago was part of tbe money paid aud agreed to be paid by the visiting statesmen to secure tbe counting of the electoral votes of Louisiana for Hayes. It had to be raised quickly. They did not dare to telegraph for it, and they could not draw for it through a New Orleans bank. The emergency was a pressing one, and tbe malls were too slow. It wus the eleventh hour. Tbe Returning Board, after rejecting every poll in various parishes, against which any evidence could be trumped up, after throwing out all the parishes which oould with any colorable pretext be claimed to be bull-dozed, I found that there were three Hayes ' electors who lacked between seven and nine hundred voles of having a majority over their Democratic competitors. Something had to be done immediately. One member of tbe Relurulug Board refused to go any further iv this dangerous business unless more money was forthcoming. He demanded cash down as an earnest of the future, ln this dilemma tbe visi ting states men went to Kellogg and said they must have $20,000 forthwith. He protested tbat be hadn't that much money. Tbey said he must raise it, and they would see that he was reimbursed. He borrowed the amount from tbe Collector of In ternal Revenue, and tbe balking member of tlie Returning Board was paid $6,000. Then the count ing out and counting in went on until the job was done. Johu Sherman and bis fellow-conspira tors knew tbat the money came from (he Collector of Internal Rev enue, and tbat it was the money of tbe United States. They knew it was used to bribe a member vf the Returning Board. Tbe money was not repaid to the Collector of In ternal Revenue until nearly eight months afterward. He could not settle his accounts without it, and demanded it from Kellogg. John Sherman had not kept his pledge that it should be reimbursed to Kellogg. It was his intention to squeeze it out of Kellogg, who wanted his seat in the Senate and oould not afford to let the truth be known, because it would certainly destroy his chance of getting into the Senate. Accordingly, Kellogg bad to borrow $20,000 of the Union National Bank of Chicago, and C. B. Farwell became his surety. Kellogg got his seat iv the Senate, but be does not think it is fair tbat $20,000 of his $30,000 salary for six years should be eaten up in this way, while Hayes does not con tribute one penuy of his $200,003. To bring this matter to a square issue, I propose to prove in any court of justice or before an Inves tigating committee of either House of Congress: First, that Kellogg has repeatedly said that $20,000 was borrowed of the Collector of Internal Revenue In New Orleans; second, that he borrowed it at the request of the visiting statesmen; third, that the visiting statesmen promised him it should be made good; fourth, tbat it .was this mon ey which secured the counting in of tbe three Hayes electors, who were still behind on the 30th of November; and, fifth, that Kellogg repeatedly said that if he did not get his seatiu the Senate he would raise hell about this $20,000, and if it wasn't repaid to him, Hayes would have to get out of the White House. OUR good natured Southern neighbor, the editor of tbo San Diego News, has lately taken to copying portions of Herald arti cles on transcontinental railways. Below portions of said articles which we had thought wo had care fully elaborated, and into which we supposed we had infused a good deal of common sense, will appear such exhaustive and annihilating criticisms as "this is too thin." We should dislike to llj to disturb the tender confidence of oar neighbor in Tom Scott. For liia nonce, to oblige it, we shall concede that his star is in the ascendaut und that It deserves so to be. But how would it be—perish tho thought-lf it shall turnout that Tom Scott is just as helpless to carry out any plans of railway building whatever as either the editor of the News or Herald? If wo believe this, and it turns out to bo the correct idea after all, we shall not have shown such au astonishing lack of wisdom, especially uot when we consider that Scott's projects aim at the ag grandizement of San Diego and uot of Los Angeles. While our argu ments are not dependent for their respectability on Scott's success or failure, tho people who have beeu placing their whole reliance on the pseudo railway king will find their arguments and their interests both powerfully assailed iv the event of Congress declining to stultify the long and consistent record of the Democratic party, which it cer tainly wou'd do by granting a new subsidy. Tub Charter Committee for now nearly a month have been indefat igable and earnest in their labors designed to give Los Angeles a good local constitution. The great" bulk of the labor lias been imposed ou a few public spirited gentlemen. During that time it has been ex ceedingly difficult to get a quorum together, yet we have reason to be lieve that tho work has been well I done. To-morrow afternoon, at 1 o'clook, at tbe City Council rooms, it is proposed to bold a final meet ing, of the Obaraoterof revision aud ratification. It is hoped that every member of tlie Committee will be present at this meeting. It is there proposed to give tbe instrument the final touches; and, as the working members of the Commit tee have at no stage consulted their own personal convenience, it is hoped that all will incommode themselves a little ou Friday and that thus n full attendance will be recorded. The Santa Barbara I'ress conies to us in a handsome new dress of type, somewhat enlarged and with the evidence of manifold improve ments iv its make up discernible at a glance. Investigation into the opium-eat iug habits of residents of the She nandoah valley, Va., reveals the fact that in the town of Staunton one hundred pounds of the drug aro sold every week. Many young women and "ladies of the first families" are slaves of the habit. A local newspaper says that public atten tion was first called to thi subject from tbe fact that a woman sent her horses to be sold that she might use the money to purchase opium. Her agent was unable to sell them, and when ho told her so she fell dead. A public anti-opium meet ing has been held, and a petition for a tax on the drug is iv circu lation. The municipality of Rome lias Voted $20,000 toward a grand bronze column, surmounted by a statue of Victor Emanuel, to be erected ou the Termini square, near the Baths of Diocletian.

Tlie exportation of forest tree seeds is assuming dimensions in tliia country. California sends $10,000 worth per year. The princi pal purchases aro made for Ger many, Austria, England, anil the colonies iv Australia and Mew Zea land; and at prenent the demand exceeds the supply. The seeds of the Oregon pine, known also as the yellow fir, are most in demand. The timber of tbat tree is as good as British oak for ship building, and has beeu found sound after eighteen years use for this purpose. The South Sea colonies are plant ing the California redwood tree ex tensively.—N. Y. Sun. The Third Regiment of French Zouaves, observing Victor Eman uel's bravery at the battle of Pales tra during the war with Austria, elected him a corporal of their reg iment, a distinction of which tbe King was proud.

Yuma, Feb. 27tli.—Tbe business of the Southern Pacific Kallroud has so increased that they have found it necessary to erect an ad ditional warehouse for tbe accom modation of tbo Arizona traffic. Withlu the past ten days upwards of 300 tons of freight has passed through Yuma for Colorado river points, aside from an immense (liiautity for inland points. Two car loads of mill machinery ar rived this moruiug for tlie I'iual Mill and Mining Company. Min ers generally seem pleased with the prospect. New and rich devel opments have been made recently. Inland travel is increasing, and the stage company have again put ou four horse coaches.

Portland, Ogu., Feb. 27.—The past 6 weeks have been so contin uously stormy that farming opera tions iv the country,like trade in the city, have been very sluggish and have mado but little progress. Re ports from the interior state tbat the large quantity of rain which has fallen lias proved quite damag ing to many wheat fields. Those on Hat lands which have been drowned out, are not the only lields that have beeu injured, for in some places, hilly lands have been badly washed. The reports are probably somewhat exagger ated. Tlie Nlurui lv Nim I.li la Oill»|M. San Luis Obispo, Feb. 27th. — The roads throughout tlie country are iv such a condition from tbe con tinuous rains that travel is impeded and business veiy dull. Ruin to day has fallen in torrents. The streams are high aud considerable damage has beeu done. One bridge, built by tho county a year ago at a cost of $3,000, at San Simeon, is swept into tbe ocean; another at Cayucos is gone aud two miles of railroad track is entirely washed from Its bed. Although much damage has been done the boun teous rain, which now is over 25 inches, is going to have a very ben eficial result, insuriug two gaod years growth of grass. The grain is beyond all that could be antici pated. Tho farmers in the South ern part of the county are urging tbe extension of the railroad. In consequence of the promising sea son one hundred thousand acres of land will be offered to settlers iv small tracts at prices ranging from $S to §20 per acre.

Washington, Feb. 27.—Among tbe thirty-tbreo hundred bills which have been introduced in the House of Representatives during the past four months, oue which bears tho very inconspicuous title of "a bill for tlie relief of certaiu citizens of the United States," rel ative to a private laud claim, has to-day been discovered to be noth ing less than a proposition to revive tbe Santillan claim, covering the greater partof thecity of San Fran cisco. Horace Davis made the dis covery through the Chairman of the Private Laud Claims Commit tee, to whom the bill was referred when introduced by Representative O'Neill, of Pennsylvania. The Chairman of the Committee seems to be favorably impressed with it aud when Davis told him it would undoubtedly be regarded witli alarm and call forth opposition from California, he said be would be glad to receive an expression of views on tlie subject from the San Francisco newspapers. The bill proposes to give the United States District Court for California power and jurisdiction to determine iv the light of alleged uewly discovered ev idence whether tbo Santillan claim was a valid grant at the time when said grant was declared invalid by the Supreme Court and the value thereof at that time, and whether said lands have been disposed of by the United States; and gives tbe right of appeal to the Supreme Court from the decision so author ized to be made. The grant of this extraordinary jurisdiction is, bow ever, made conditional upon a pro viso that action shall be tlrst taken by tlie owners of tbe claims as fol lows: The Trustees of the San Fran cisco Land Association shall exe cute aud record in the office of the County Recorder of the city and county of San Francisco a deed of release of all their right, title and interest of, in and to all lands known as tbe Mission Dolores, lauds in and near said city, included within the alleged grant by Gov. Pio Pico under the laws of Mexico, bearing date February lOtb, 1846, and known as the Bolton claim for the use and protection of all per sons lawfully in possession of said lands ar any part thereof .-reserving, however, to said trustees tbe right to apply to tbe Congress of tbe United States for compensation therefor. The promoter of the bill says its purpose is only to lay the foundation for a claim against the government and uot to distrustany property holders. But granting that tbey have no other purpose in view, the hill seems open to grave objections as being against public policy, opening tbe door to possibly manufactured records and as being very loosely drawn. Thus, for instance, the word "lawfully" iv the foregoing proviso is susceptible of various construc tions, and no mention is made of the corporate holders of the prop erty, nor of streets or]"of public parks. The Houso Public Lands Com mittee to-day decided to report fa vorably on Luttrell's bill granting to O. W.Wozencraft and associates at present valuation such portions of the Colorado desert as they may reclaim by irrigation. The bill will he amended in accordance with the suggestions of tlie Commis sioner of tbe General Land Office, to make Its terms more definite. The committee have also agreed to recommend the passago of Lut trell's bill allowing certificates of deposits made by pre emption set tlers for surveys lo bo received In part payment for their laud. The T'.trtff-lutor Wtttlo coinruerce. Washington, Feb. 27th. — The Committee on Ways aud Means to-day acted finally on the sugar schedule of the tariirbill. To-mor row the committee will consider silk and ■Ilk goods. Tho bill reported by Representa tive Etgan, from tlie Coruraiitee on Commerce, for the regulation of inter-State commerce and to pre vent unjust discrimination as to freight charges and facilities by railroads aud other common car riers, is accompanied by an elabo rate report in favor of its passage. The committee quote authority to show that Congress has power to enact such a law as they propose and argue that, as Congress only can furuisli a remedy for the evils cited, the time has come when this duty should be performed.
