It is now aotually a question with a great portion of California whether hydraulic mining shall proceed and all the land below Us level be destroyed for farming pur poses, or whether we shall in de fence of a greater industry pro hibit oao peculiar branch of a leaser industry. As the Record- Union truly says, hydraulic mining Is steadily destroying the principal rivers ef the State. It has already Inflicted enormous Injury upon tbe Sacramento river. It haa so Ailed up t ie bed of that stream that every wiuler brings higher floods than before. It has become necessary to higbten the levees everywhere, and notwithstanding these precautionary measures it is evident that a time must come when this pr oceas will cease to af ford protect ion, while it is olear that every break In the levees must Involve increased destruction of property, the higher they are raised. Nor is this all. Suisun bay Is being filled up with mining debris, and the harbor of San Fran cisco is threatened with destruc tion. The consequences of hy draulic mining, If carried on for twenty years from the present time even at the same rate as now, must be calami tons to the enduring in terests of the State. The most fer tile area of the State. The most fertile area of the northern region is menaced with destruction. It will, if no preventive measures are adopted, be gradually buried under sev era) feet of a barren sand, inoa pable of cultivation. Navigation of tbe Sscramento will bo stopper 1 , and the river will be transformed Into a mere ditch. In the winter It will bring down sudden and heavy floods, aud its waters will overtop its banks, and overflow hundreds of leagues of country. In the summer it will run almost dry, and will be unnavigable for any thing hut row boats. On the other hand, the hydraulic miues, at the same time that they are destroying the country below them, are m«k log a howling desert of the region in which they are situated. The washingdown ef the upper strata of soil from wide areas of country leaves the bed rock exposed to view, and makes any future culti vation of lhat region impossi ble. It is being prepared to pre oipi tate stoim waters with sudden violence upon the valleys be low. In a few years tho mines m ust be exhausted, and then the entire mining region will have to be abaudened. If the working of the mines lias in the meantime re sulted iv the ruiu of the valleys, tlie prospects of the State will have been effectually blighted. These considerations demonstrate the ab solute necessity of changing the old mining policy. Tlie conditions havealready been virtually altered. California is no longer substan tially a mining State. The min ing interest has long since become one of secondary; importance, and it must yield to more enduring ones. It is of infinitely more im portance that the fertility of ti lia ble land should be preserved, and that the rivers should be kept open, .-•.nd that the valley cities should be protested against floods, than lhat the hydraulic mines should be maintained. We have discov ered that an ac c of good arable land Is far more valuable to the Stute than an acre of mineral land, no matter how thickly the latter may be studded with gold and sil ver. For wheress the mineral land can only contain a limited wealth in the precious metals, the productive capacity of the tannine land is unlimited, and it endures forever. As a matter of Slate pol icy, therofore, il is clear that the protection of the agricultural. in terest demands and must receive the first consideration. As a ques tion of rights and privileges it is also beginning lo be realized lhat the miners . an not possess an eq'iit able claim to pursue their busi ness at the sacrifice of tbelr neigh bor's interests. The Rights of Man must always stop at the point where the enjoyment of a liberty further entails the'perpetratlon of a wrong. No man has ever been guaranteed the liberty which re quires the infliction of injury upon another for its full fruition. Every man is equally entitled to protec tion in the projection of legiti mate industries, aud there/pre the farmer must be entitled tion against tlie sedims eaVieposlt ii g operation] of tlie rr. .-. These are the more modern views, and though the miner. Is fully deter mined to test his rights to tho ut most in tho Courts, we are satisfied that iv the cud the rights of agri culture will be recognized, and that the depositor debris In tbe rivers and streams will have to be discontinued. The contest is a new one, but the principles involved •re old as the hills, and there is co room for controversy concerning 1 them if only the subject can be discussed without prejudice. Communism and Socialism. It may be well to ponder ou the following reflections uttered by a man whose great abilities recom mend him to all: The schemes ending in modem Communism aud Socialism pre tend to have for their object to prevent or remedy certain Inequal ities which grow up In Boclety from the unrestricted exercise of prop erty or inheritance. The question then is, shall wealth of whatever description, in single hands, be limited? Such a limit Is gross in justice. If a limit lo tho amount of properly prevailed wo ns to in clude all kinds, il would act to tlie prejudice of exchanges and greatly embarass business, if only laud were affected by such v limit it would uot be difficult to evade tbe law by dividing property among the members of one family. Ine quality inevitably springs (ut ol differences of vigor of mind, of in telligence, of sobriety, of thrift and economy. The law of inheritance —that law which is the great stlm uleus to industry and tlie great clvilizer of mankind, only perpet uates differences of condition. The advantages attained by the father might bo retained and increased by the child. The justice of limiting property in land in general to a definite amount or to an amount having certain money value is neither politic nor lust, because tbe importance of landed property in political science is relatively less, as a country grows older; the ether shapes in which the gains ol labor can be put, become more nu merous and more important, while hind remains the same in quantity and increases but slowly in value. But all communism contains a con tradiction in Itself, because tbe power of choosing their work and of diltributing their property is taken away, it passes over to the community. Thus a new depend ence arises, a veritable slavery, which is opposed entirely to the idea of equality. It is clear that every kind of communism would put a new und more intolerable loss of freedom In the stead of so cial dependence. Tbe atomistic character of communism condemns it as being contrary to nature and man's destiny. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.

Ami-Renter IllOlenliiis Ben red New York, August Ist.—Chas. Montange, on complaint of Geo, Clark, of Springfield, Otegos couuty, was lodged in jail in de fault of $25,000 bail, In the suit brought by Clark for $46,000 dam ages of property burned by Mont gomery's tenants, a mutual society, ot which Montange is alleged to have been an active member be tween December 29, 1873 aud September 1, 1876. Clarke is said to be the largest land owner i i this State, owning between 40,000 and 50,000 acres in tlie coun ties of Green, Dutchess, Uneida, Otsego and Montgomery. The af fidavit of Clarke sets forth that he became possessed of tlie lands through a grant by the Colonial Council to Wm. Corry and others.

The Discoverer of America. AWall street broker laid a wager the other day that Christopher Co lumbus discovered the continent of North America, and, of course, lost it. It is surprising how many Intelligent persons entertain the same error. Knowing that he dis covered a number of islands in the Western Hemisphere, they think that he must of necessity have dis covered this continent also. They forget that he died in ignorance of the real grandeur of his achieve ment, believing Cuha, TerraFirma and the other luu.ls lie had found to be remote parts of Asia. Amer igo Vespucci, after whom North and South America were named, did not discover this continent proper either. The land he dis covered lay near the equator, and he, too, was deluded with the no tion that it was a portion ef Asia. John Cabot was tbe discoverer of North Amerlci (some time in May, 1497,) which he likewise supposed to belong to tlie dominions of the Qrand Cham. He sailed along the coast for 300 leagues, aid went ashore without finding any human beings, though be believed the country inhabited. It is remarka ble that the three great discoverers of the western world should have all been Italians—Columbus hav ing been born in Genoa, Vespucci in Florence and Cabot presumably in Venice. The birth of Cabot is uncertain, as are his age and the place and time of his death. But the fact that Ihe license grunted him by Henry VII calls him Ka botto, Venetian, would seem to de termine tho question of his nativ ity. NEW TO-DAY. RAILROAD EXCURSION SAN FRANCISCO!
