The Real Soares of England's strength In view of the fact that nearly every European telegram comes to us burdened with mutteriugs of the British lion, the naval power of the United Kingdom is just now invested with such peculiar inter est tbat it becomes worth while to define the extent and character of that fleet, which must always con stitute the' main factor of Eng land's fighting strength, premising that a large share of the recent supplemental credit has been de voted to naval purposes, although the regular appropriation for 1577 exceeded $66,000,000. At the last date covered by offi cial report—December 31, 1876—the British war fleet was composed of 241 vessels in commission. Tbe number of men employed in the service was not less than 60,000, including upwards of 33,000 sailors and 14,000 marines. We need not say that the most important divis ion of the force is made up of ar mored ships. Of these at the date mentioned there were fifty-eight, from which aggrogate, however, should be deducted three construct ed specially for colouial defense, and eight considered too old or too badly built to put to sea; leaving, therefore, a net total of forty seven ironclads. Without run ning through the catalogue of names, we may say that this list includes vessels of all dimensions, from the Inflexible, of more than 11,000 tons, whose si Jen are thirty nine inches thick, three-fifths of which thickness is represented by Iron plates, and which cariies four cannon, each of eighty-one tons weight, besides steam engines of 8,000 horse power, to the Favorite, tbe smallest ironclad uuder the English flag, whose armor is only four inches thick, but which, iv any other navy, would lie a for midable craft, having a capacity of more than 3,000 tons, engines of 1,700 horse power and an arma ment of ten 9-ton guns. .Such nan the state of things at the beginning ot last year. Let us now see what progress was made during the next twelvemonth. According to tlie programme put forward by tlie Fint Lord of the Admiralty, six ironclads were to be finished during 1877, and all the unarmoted vessels then on the stocks were to be brought nigh to completion. It was premised moreover, tbat a new ironclad ol the first class should be begun, to gether with a ram of sufficient power to c 0,.0 with certain re doubtable engines of war said to be building in continental harbors, and, in addition, an unarmored corvette, a sloop and two sailing vessel?. In a word, the Minister j vuuUwtook Uuat during the financial term of J877-78 Hie national yards should add to the fleet more thau 14,000 tons, while private contract ors were to build for government accouut almost half as much again. Notwithstanding its inability to completely fulfill the above pro gramme, Ihe Knglisli Government has added a good deal to the verit able solidity of Its naval force. Four colossal ironclads were fin ished and sent to sea in 1877, namely, the Thunderer, the Dread naught, tlie Alexandra, aud the Temeraire. One of these, tlie Thunderer, ought lo have been ready for service much earlier, but on the day when it was to make a trial trip one of its boilers explod ed, causing an amount of damage which It required six months to repair. Besides tbe two engines of 6,000 horse power, which move its screw, titers are ou board this ves sel twenty-six other steam engines and a hydraulic machine for the management of the helm, the re volving turrets ami other parts of the apparatus. Tlie Thunderer is covered with plates about 14 inches thick and carries four cannon, each weighing 38 tons. Its mean speed is said to be thirteen and a half knots. Besides armored ships of the same character, tbe English Admiralty has lately constructed a number of vessels not plated and furnished with a relatively light armament, but designed to show exceptional fast-going qualities. Somo distinguished specialists have severely criticised these ex periments, and the controversy on the subject is far from being ended. It is said, for instance, tbat the new vessels are 100 powerful for simple cruisers anil too weak to engage witii ironclads. It is cer tain that one of the finest types, tlie .Shah, was constrained after a few minutes to renounce tlie idea of coping witii the Peruvian ship Huescar. The remarkable results obtained by the Russians from torpedoes on the Danube ami iv the Black Sea could not fill to awukeu the atten tion of the English Admiralty. Numerous experiments have been made iv the way of making ex tremely light steam vessels, des tined to lodge torpedoes under the Hank of armored ships, or to launch that species of explosive with means of automatic movement. Essential conditions to tbe ellicaey of such cratt are unusual speed and a peculiar facility of evolution. After numerous tests, the English shipwrights have fixed upon a model eighty-four feet in length and only eleven feet wide. Ho far but a single example of I lie type has beeu completed, but this with its powerful engines has attained a speed of nine teen aud a half knots. It is re ported, moreover, tbat fifteen others are now ou the stocks, und that the buil Jers have guaranteed a minimum speed of twenty-live knots. Anil here \\. may mention a curious fact beariug ou tbe use fulness of such vessels, and demon strated by recent experiments, namely, that where their hulls are pierced below tlie water line, very little water penetrates, provided tbe speed be as high as teu knots, and almost none if it exceed eighteen. We may add that the Admiralty have lately undertaken tlie con struction of a submarine vessel in tended to tlx torpedoes under the keel of hostile vessels. Naval artillery seems to have made but little progress iv 1877. Hitherto England has contented herself with tbe Armstrong guns of eighty tons, which are regularly adopted for the armament of her ironclads, lv lo tbe present time Italy alone has gone a little further iv this direction, having furnished some of her armored ships with 100-ton cannon. We un derstand, however, that the fa mous Euglish eugiueer is now con structing for Uoverumeut account a cannon of 150 tons. But what ever may be the slight superiority of a few isolated pieces, as iv the case just named, there is little doubt that the British irou fleet, taken collectively, both as regards weight of armament and defensive power, is a match tor the joint naval forces of all the rest of the world. When we consider, too, the Incomparably large number of sailors employed on her men-of war, and thu immense seafaring population from which her crews may be recruited, we see no reasou why England might not repeat the superb achievement of seventy years ago, when she replied to Na poleon's Berlin decree by blockad ing the ports of v whole continent, aud chasing every European flag, except her own, from tlie high seas. When it comes to talking about England's army in a contest with Russia it is impossible lo repress a siuile. It would scarcely be a bite for tlie Russian bear. Rut from the standpoint of England's own proper domain—tho water—tiie case presents very different aspects. Notwithstanding her unquestioned naval ability, we regard peace, if dependent ou tlie initiative of ling laud alone, as assured. Without powerful allies she would not dare the venture. After all we should uot be sur prised if tbo upshot of all Kear ney's talk about hanging, his exhi - bitiou of tlie hangman's noose at the Sand Lots meetings, and mon otonous incitutious to murder aud arson, shall bo tbat he himself will be huug. Putting the lsw at defi ance aud preaching violence as a Gospel sometimes has effects uot dreamed of by agitators. It is a matter of history that Guillotiti was one of the first to suffer by his own deadly invention, and the in genious mechanic who contrived a contracting coffin for a cruel Ital ian Duke of the Middle Ages, was the first wretched creature to suffer its infernal torments. If Kearney keeps on talking about hemp much longer it will soon be necessary to place him iv oue of those secluded retreat 9, knowu by the vulgar as a Penitentiary, where the manipula tion of hemp is ths normal relief from excessive ennui. Kearney's great danger lies iv the fact that he may be caught some day trying to break up a meeting of deter mined men, with one of his Sand Lots nooses in his pocket, and sum marily strung up. That was a very neat piece of satire perpetrated by the wife of a California Senator who advised her husband to resign and come home, on the ground that the honor of going to the Legislature was about on a par with tbat of goiug to the Penitentiary. After having bad our laugh at the pungent woman's wit of this sally, we are tempted to ask if Messieurs tlie Leg islators are not themselves responsible for this state of things? We deprecate heartily the coarse aud belittling fashion in which it is becoming customary to speak of American publio meu of every grade. But when suspicions of corruption aud venality are the natural outgrowth of the acts of many of these persons, disesteem and contemptuous comment are almost Inevitable. Those who wish well to the United States can only hope that this evil lias al ready attained a climax. It is when the humors are rankest that tbey begin to slough off and the patient has a chance of being cured. The California Legislature will coma to an end, by our calculation, at 12 o'clock next Tuesday night. At least the pay stops then, and that will probably determine the matter. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. (.Special to the Herald by the Western Union Telegraph Company.] Pacific Coast News. A i'oiinnl S ~.1 ..t il San Kbancisco, March '.19. —Tho account telegraphed this morning concerning tbe steamer Pelican seems to have been both misstated aud overstated. The Consul for Costa Rica says the agent of the Costa Rlcan government is here negotiating for the purchase of the steamer, which is being retltted in auticipalion of a change of owner ship. She Is to bo fitted for com mercial service between Casta Rica aud neighboring States, hut with au eye to her conversion into a war vessel if desired. No orders have been received from Wushington to stop the steamer, but tho authori ties lipro have been directed to keep au eye on her and note tlie pro gress and character of repairs, equipments, etc. Tlie Muiipoaeil More Murderer*. San Buena Ventura, March 29. The seven men arrested ou the charge of participation iv or com plicity with the More murder, will be brought before the committing magistrate to-morrow and will ask for time as they haveneithei coun sel nor witnesses. The examina tion will probably take place on Monday or Tuesday. The air is full of rumors such as that one member of an oath bound associa tion has divulged the whole partic ulars, etc., but the authorities keep their own couusel. Churchill, one of the prisoners, is quits sick. Legislative Hroceeiliuxs. Sacramento, March 29.—Sen ate— Searles, from the Committee on Corporations, reported ou the substitute for Tuttle's mining bill without recommendation. The bill takes a place ou the general file. This looks like a defeat for this session. Shirley, from the Committee on State Prisons, repotted adversely on Assembly bill for the comple tion of tho Folsom branch prison. Haymond and Nunan presented a miuority report In favor of the bill. Haymond demande I on behalf of his Sacramento constituency that he should be heard in favor of it. He tried to make the bill the special order for to-day at oue P. m. The vote stood 20ayes, and 15 noes, not a two thirds majority. Lost. The bill therefore goes to thu rile and any action by the Sen ate before adjourtmeht is doubt ful. New bills—By Smith, a bill ap propriating $-5,000 to enable the Southern California Horticultural Society to make a creditable ex hibit at the Fair at Washington. He moved to have it taken Up at ouce. Murphy objected, and Ihe bill was ordered on Hie. The Judiciary Committee re ported back Anderson's eminent domaiu bill witli recommendation that it be immediately takeu up aud passed. So ordered. Assembly.

Virginia, Nev., March 29th.— The new east winze from the 1,900 --foot level of the Opbir mine was down between 12 and 15 feet at 7 o'clock this morning, it is being sunk at tbe rate of about three feet per duy au I should strike the ore body iv a few days if the ledge pitches to tlie east. It is believed, however, that it pitches to the west and, if this proves to be the case, the drift muit be run westward from the winze to cut into ore. The progress of tlie cross cut on the 2,000-foot level of the Savage mine is being watched with inter est by local experts as something of value is expected to be developed by it. This opinion is based upon the fact that, a couple of years ago, the west drift run from the Senator shaft cut into a ledge which as sayed as high as $250 per ton. It is likely that the Sutro tunnel, which is now on that ground, will soon cut into that vein or lode, If Savage does not. The Savage cross cut this morning was iv a kind of diorite, which is very hard, but blasts well. A change of ground is expected shortly, however. Nevada, Bauk I'linuitca. San Francisco, March 20.—At the meeting of tlie Directors of the Nevada Bank the resignation of C. T. Christiansen as cashier, was ac cepted. Henry W. Gleuny, assis tant cashier, was elected cashier. Christiansen, in convection with C. W. Church, formerly of Fort Hamilton, New York, will have charge of the branch of the Nevada Bank to be opened ill New York iv May. Both these gentlemen are now en route to New York. The former will go right througli to London to arrange some business matters in England aud France.

They will be abseut a mouth. ▲ scouting party consisting of three companies of cavalry and two of infautry, under command of Capt. Edwin Pollock, of the Ninth Infantry, left Fort McKlnney yes terday to patrol the country iv the neighborhood of Belle Fourche and as far into tbe Black Hills as the limits of the Department will per mit. Fort McKlnney is the most northern post in the Department of tbe Platte and is about 178 miles northwest of Fort Laramie, at tbe foot of tbe Big Horn Mouutalus. This expedition would have started two or three weeks ago had it not been for the late severe storm that prevailed throughout the country they are expected to traverse. They will be ou patrol duty in the field about one month and will hunt for straggling bauds of In dians away from reservations. The Missouri river rose twenty inches at this point since yester day, three and a half feet at Sioux City, aud live feet above that place. For fear that the rise may do some damage to the Uuion Pacific bridgo precautions are beiug taken to pr« vent auythiug of the kind. A day or two siuce the vow iron superstructure of the second span, at ihe east end, was put iv place and tho wooden truss which has been doing temporary duty, was lowered about a foot aud allowed to iest ou the piles-. Some of the piles are already washed out and tbere is a possibility tbat the high water will take them all out. Should it do this, the wooden truss would very likely plunge forward east ward against the piers aud possibly break them ofT, as the truss weighs 250 tous. To avert Bueh a disaster the truss is vow being hung by two Immense steel wire cables six inches in diameter. These cables are to go under the truss nt each cud uud tlie ends of the cables are to be fastened to ihe Iron work above, which is independent ot the woodeu truss and rests on tho piers. Traius are passing over the bridge safely and with but little or no in terruption. g>*aVS Timber BUI—MINI Appro. lirliuluii.. Washington, March 29th.—The House Public Lands Committee have agreed to recommend the passage of the bill introduced by Representative Page last Tuesday, providing for the sale of timber lands in California, Oregon and Washington Territory aud for the discontinuance of the prosecutiou of the parties indicted for violation of section 24U1 of tlie revised stat utes, ou condition of their paying into tho court a penalty ol $2 50 for every acre of land from which they have caused timber to be cut or removed. The ouly amendment made by the commit tee is one to provide more clearly that Ibis last named provision aud tlie proposed repeal of Bection 4751, relative to informers, shall apply only to California, Oregon and Washington Territory. Tbe Com mittee authorized Wiggititou to report it for passage at the first op portunity. The legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill, as re ported from tbe House Committee, proposes tlie following appropria tions for Pacific Coast mints: San Francisco, wages of workmen and all adjusters, $275,000; materials and repairs, 557.500; salary of Superintendent, $4,500; assay er, melter, refiner and coiner, §3,000 each; Chief Cierk and Cashier, $2>SUO each, and four eleiks 91,000 each.

It reliuquished lo the companies forty-live millions of dollars. The Judiciary Committee's bill did uot impair the obligations of coutracts and the acts of Con gress of 1862 and 1864— did not pro hitit Congress from compelling these companies to create a sink ing fund.

European Cable News. llerllj'M Ken.ou* fur Mes I. iitm>. London, March 29.— Tlie House of Lords was very crowded this af teruoou. Many members of the Lower House were present. Lord Derby entered soon after five aud took a teat below the gangway in stead of on the Treasury bench. He rose almost immediately and announced his resignation us Sec retary for Foreign Affairs, which he said had been accepted by the Uueen and he only continued to hold office until the appointment of his successor. 110 regretted that, under the circumstances, it would not be Justifiable for him to follow the customary course of ex plaining iv detail Iho differences which led him to resign. The Cab inet hud arrived at certain conclu sions of a grave and important character iv which he was not able to concur. To prevent needless alarm lie would say he did not con sider these measures ub necessarily teuding to bring about war. He gave the Cabinet credit for sincere ly desiring a European Peace, but he could not regard the measures which have been resolved upon as prudent iv the Interests of peace or necessary for the safety of the country. When the concurrence of Parliament is asked for the measures uf which he had spoken, he would indicate his opinion. He would state, however, that he did not dis sent from the Cabinet's view of tlie conditions upon which Europe might go into tho Congress. He lamented the obstacles to the meet ing of Congress, but tlie fault did not rest witli the Government of this country. Beaconslleld said lie would willingly refrain from noticing the reasons which had inllueuced Lord Derby to resign uutil the period when those reasons might be legit imately considered by tlie House. So much mischief mightoccur from unnecessary mystery that it was his duty to say that, iv consequence of the belief of the government that the Congress would not ho held and that hopes of rectifying the disturbed balance of power in tho Mediterranean had ceased, it was tho duty of tho ministers to consider what steps should be taken to prevent the impending mischief. They had, therefore, ad vised Her Majesty to avail herself of the services of her reserve forties, A message to that effect would be laid before Parliament. Enlfillsli Affnlr. fini.tliis Us-ltteai, London, March 29th.—In the House of Commons, Secretary of War Gathorne Hardy said It was necessary to call out the first class of the army reserves, numbering 14,000, and Ihe militia reserve, Which was between 25,000 and 20,000. The Queen's message to that effect would be presented probably on Monday. This would be followed by a proclamation call ing out such of the reserve force ns might be required. Hardy painted this as not an embodiment of the militia, which would not lake place until it was necessary to send tlie regulars abroad. Lord Lyous is mentioned ne the possible successor of Lord Derby, but nothing definite is yet known. It is understood that Ilia royal message refers to a detailed state ment of thecnuns for calling nut the reserves. A Constantinople special says It is thought that Safvet Pasha will request England tv withdraw her lluet, its Ku-islti and Turkey are now allies. Tlie Times, in v loading article, says: Russia has adopted an ul terly iudefuiisittle nttitu le, an I unless she withdraws it may be necessary for us to be prepared lo fully assert our rights.

Granville and Oreeu, who lived at Pine Fiat. Our In formant Says that while sitting iv the house, after night, lliey weie liteil upon through a window, one being killed Instantly ami ihe other dying Monday morning — i lie shooting having been done on Sunday night. To-day the r.tory is corroborated by other parties, who say they were at Pine Flat the night the murder was committed. The follow ing cir cumstances are supposed to have been the cause: Green and Gran ville Thompson (twin brothers) had a fight with a man by the name of See, in Pope Valley, some years ago, which resulted in the death of tlie latter; the trouble originated through some land affair. It is said tbe brother of Mr. See vowed vengeauce. After years of law suits the Thompsons escaped the law, and have siuce acquired a for tune at Pino Fiat, through mining enterprise and sheep-raising, hav iog nt present 12,000 sheep ou their rineh. The story goes that See (who, it is supposed, did the shoot lug) was seen at the Geysers several days previous to the killing of the Thompsons. As they were at Sauta Rosa, It wus necessary for bin to await their ariival home, Sunday night being the first night tbey had spent nt home for over a week. The man who did the shooting, it is said, lives in Kugene City, Oregon, and has taken this trip to California on purpose to wreak vengeance on those who caused his brothel's death. I'arties here who are ac quainted with tho Thompsons say that they havo long expected an attack on their lives, and in all cases went heavily armed. But on this occasion they had no chance lor defense, as tbe shooting was done from thu outside of the house, and with a cool and deliberate ami. NEW TO-DAY.
