GOT. Cornell bad better keep bit eye eklnued since sanguinary grangers make) tbelr appearance at Albany wltb nnloaded guns. The delights of office-holding will not be rated so highly If every crsey man goes a gunning after Incum bents. All may not oarry empty weapons, like the fool wbo was ap prehended yesterday. The question of election or no eleotion will shortly be deter mined, as tbe case has already some before tbe Supreme Court, ' witb an allowance of but Aye days to prepare tbe pleadings, If the issue bad to be raised it is well tbat It should be heard and deteimined _aL once, so tbat we may all know •just where we stand. At present both offlo* holders aud voters are in worse tban Cimmerian dark nsss. It ia pleasant to knew that tbe situation in tbe White House is not aa grave as it threatened to be. Tbeuhllls and rigors have not* re curred, and tbe surgeons bave bad tbe oourage to use the knife, with gratifying results. Suppuration and granulation are proceeding ln tbe approved way, and tbe proba bility is tbat, at some day not fir removed, in taking away a poul tice, a wad of clothing and the ball will be found. Americans, irre spective of party, were shocked at tbe unfavorable developments of the other day, but a clear incision with the knife has removed imme * . dlate danger, oheeked tbe fever and grveri a clear passage way for a healthy suppuration. Again It seems clear that President Garfield will live out bis term. Tub Herald, uot having itio its power to regulate corporation-, railway or other, Is ready to wel come any ohange of schedule which will benefit the producers of JLos Angeles county. Tbe opening ol travel and transportation over tbe Southern Paoifio Hallway was at tended wltb high bopes, and tbese have been followed at least by some degree of fruition. Wben further concessions are made we •ball announce tbem. At present, V* are glad to know that our win* and brandy shippers are, or Shortly will be, In a fir better plight than those of the Sonoma, Napa and Santa Clara valleys. Tbla la something gained, end we must say tbat we should be glad to •se onr esteemed evenlug contem porary allow tbls local advantage to oount for what It is worth—that Is to say, allow outsiders to know tbat our transportation status is be leg steadily If but slowly improved. After al), tbe opening of trans portation over tbe Southern route bas been, and ie being, of Incalcul able benefit to tbe producers of Los Angeles county. It Is making them rich. It is putting value on •verything tbey raise. Independ ently of our railway eontroveisles, tba knowledge of tbls faot should not be olouded to Intending settlers. It Is money In the pooket of every man who owns' a rood of land In this oounty. OCB esteemed contemporary tbe Commercial calls our attention to the faot that we were mistaken In saying tbat Laphata was a deserter from tbe United States army dur ing tbe war. We ought to bave said Miller when we said Lapham. Unfortunately these fellows are so obscure and Insignificant tbat one Is apt to confound one with tbe other. The probability Is tbat, when their term is out, If tbey •hall be admitted to tbelr seats In tbe United States Senate, one will be as apt to oonfound tbem tben as bow. Tbey are the two bromine of KphesuS, as contrasted with tbe Aatlpholl of Hbakspeare's play, tha latter being persouated by Conkling and Piatt. Tbey bave tbe eatae vulgar aod Inane llDea aaaßta wblob gave parentage to tbe delioious blundering depleted iv tho Immortal Comedy of Errors. W« beg Senator Lapbam'r pardon. He has not even tlsen to tbe dignity of being a wood pulp monopolist, to saj nothing of lhe Irrldeacent glories Wbioh attaches to a deasrter from th* United States army during the war. Instead of being a orlmloal >• Is simply a nobody. New York, la th* struggles or tb* next tbree to aUc years, will be well represent ed indeed. For tbe first time ln h*r honored and memorable his tory tbat euperb common wealth Will be represented in tb* Uoited States Senate by nincompoops, par* aad simple. Elsewhere we have comment, ed, in terms of Just severity, upon tbe selfish disorganization of the diverse elements which makeup the Democratic party in tbe city of San Francisco. As to the Re publican party, io Ihe same mu nicipality, reprobation and con tempt are even more deserved. In the Democracy all is warring and confusion. Catcs umpire sit', And, by decision, more embroils tLe f.»y. But tbe eelf-constttutcd Republl- oan Convention bas been guilty of a graver crime than mere contra riety of opinion, or diversity of choice In candidates. It bas delib erately nominated men for offloe whom it knows to bs unfit. Tbis Incident bas been attended by a notable feature, outside of tbe Hi - uess of candidates. Tbe Republi can Convention of San Franolsjo deliberately placed a declaration upon record tbat tbe attempted as aaaslnatlon ot Qarfield was due to tbe attitude of Grant, Conkllug and Arthur In national politics i'he Alta und the Bolt pointed, out tbls fact, and called for a rescislou of this resolution, so offensive to the stalwarts, threatening, If It were not rescinded, tbut the elec tion would be fatal to tbe Republi can party In Bau Francisco. Tbe Convention failed to rtsoind one jot or tittle of iti insulting allega tion. What do we see, us are suit. First, tbe Post bas lost its stalwartneae, and has wheeled into line, licking tbe rod which whipped It. Tbe Alta is yet hesitating, and is concealing Its surrender undtr the cover of aesaulis on one Eisl man, a member of tbe Board of Supervisors, whose aotton upon a printing contract is not acceptable to that Journal. The Post, how ever, bas already fallen down. It bse surrendered its beloved "stal warts," and we risk nothing ln predicting that the Alta, with per haps tbe exception of Supervisor Eastman, will soon follow suit. Such is the sweiM und wholesome attitude o'tbe distinct!vely Repub lloau press of Situ Francisco. It is not unchuiltable to say that these worthies raise a howl with v view to being i i ; . We shall watch tbe future actions of these Journals, aodshai! make ihu amende honor able if we And that we have been mistaken. The fl ip of the Pott, In Its suddenness and prsetioal pur pose, resembled the notion of tbs Individual who, for HWj leave* a town between two day-, as It were. In Its case, tumultuous protest never oame to a more ignoble end. While our Democracy la Inborn, and of at laaat tbree generations in ttie lineal line, we do not like the somewhat involved aud cotivolutid details of tbe pariy organic ttlon In San Francisoo. The Luge humbug of a Workingmau's organlzitiou ln tbat otty Is oue of tbe fligrant crimes of current politics. The di vision iv tbe D v era; proper 1, another. If there Is a man alive wbo does not know tbe tremendous burlssqus involved In a review of the Wurkingmen's parly In this State, we simply pity him. Every one of the men eleoted und r pledges of tbe Worklngmen'a Con vention to restore a portion of bis salary to the City and Counly Treasury of San Francisco, has pei> Jured himself, and bas < v b.-zzY ! a sum that ought to be returned to the people of the Golden Gate, Take It for all In all, firstly in the promise of such return, and, eee ondly, In the faiime toredeem that promise, it was tbe dirtiest devel opment of politics ever known ou tbe Amerioan continent. In the eleotion which Is to come off in San Francisco, as a Democratic or gan, tbe Herald would be expect ed to speak favorably as to the re sult. Would to God that we Could do to, but we oau't, as tie oa«e -stands. What a pitiable spectaole It la I First we have tbe Democ racy, witb Its Yosemite and Man hattan divisions, spilt up the mid dle. Nest we b.ivy tbe Working men dickering wltb these factions, the Worklngmenmeanwhile being split up the midd.e. Wbatsignifl canoe, honorable to tbe Democrat .a party, oould arise from a viotory ut the polls undtr auob circumstances? We full to see whcieit o >mci lv. A real lover of tbe Democratic party, wbo bouora ita traditions, aad knows tbat it la to be tbe regener ating Impulse Id tbe future of our □attooal politics, would, beexousa ble In desiring to see the inharmonious and warring fac tions defeated, for tbe time being. What wholesomely con stituted Demcorat - oan bs ex peoted to warm up to tbls trading, dickering and altogether contempt ible caballing ? Every well con stituted Democrat can experieDoe notblog but unalloyed disgust as he contemplates the huckstering programme which is now outlined lv San Fi ano'sco. Every Demo crat wbo respeots himself and his party ought to be resigned to de feat in San Franoisoo as he notes tbe ineffably base conditions, wltb an infinite diversity of elements, In wblob bis party Is left in lbs met rop il><ku <..y nf the Pacific Coast The whole thing is woiee tbau an emetic.

Ue testified that North urn Belle bullion was sometime* lit for coining, sometimes other wise; tbe c oner had frequently complained of it; when found unfit it w» rettirued; if proper deduc tions bad been made tUe great loss es of 1880 would have beeu avoided. 'lhe quertlon of admitting evi dence regarding the previous ad mlnistraliou of the Mint wus ar gued at leogth and decided in tbe ufflimatlve, counsel for Dodge claiming; that It would disprove the lending obarge of l J .»;e that Dodge h»d reoeived low grade bullion fmai ih.. Anglo-Caliiorulan Bunk wiibout making proper deductions by i.riaugemtnt witu ther/resldent of that bauk. lhe witness continued that Northern Belle and similar low grade bullion had been received during tbe previous administra tion, und that he had received no special instructions from Dodge relative to Northern Belle bullion; ibe looses iv 188J were not confined to Northern Belle bullion, but were dispersed over all the low grade bullion reoeived; knew of uoibing leading him to believe t .at favoritism had been shown the Auglo-Ualiforuiau Bauk. On Crnss-sXaailuatiou lhe wituess tes lifled that there was nothing secret i n the fact of the losses sustained on low i.-r d i bullion; tbe losses of 1880 were about, two-thirds of lhe I gai allowance fur wastage; the earnings of thu refinery depart ment fur tbat year more than cov ered the losses.

He replied, "I am the Adjutant- General of this State." Hyde al ouoe saw tbat the man was proba bly* orasy, and fearing tbat some barm to State officials was intend ed, asked for tbe gun. Tbe stran ger declined to give It up, when a s ri'g.'io ensued fur Its possession mil Hyde secured It. It was un oi.ded. Tbe stranger, wbo is evi dently recovering from a spree, gives bis name as Patrick MeLane, a blaeksmitb of Whitehall. New York, July 27.—James W, Slmoutoo, who baa occupied tbe posltloo of General Aeent of the New York Associated Press for tbe past fourteen years, to-day ten dered bis resignation, and James 0. Husston, at present London Agent of the New York Associa tion, was appointed toauooted bim. Singular Superstitions. Bill . Nye, of the Laramie Boomerang, bas been compiling a list of superstitions. Wben you come to make a list of them, be says, It is wobderful how many In telligent people are the victims of the most unreasonable whims. For lustanse, we are acquainted with a ltdy wbo is well- educated aod far above tbe average olass of those who constitute tbe great army of tbe superstitious, who never allows a breakfast to bs pre pared In ber house on wash day of auy thing but giblets of codfish and tidbits of superanuated grub left over from the preceding week, tier bushand has struggled to con vince her of the uttei absurdity of tbls praotice, and show her tbat there is nothing lo it, bat all ef forts have been worse than useless. A friend nf ours, too, wbo Is a college graduate, aud boots most of tba follies or tbe day, is still so su perstitious on one poiut tbat be is a slave to bis singular whim. He will not pass up the same side of tbe street on which a creditor of his is ucniiDg down. He says he never has good luck if he sees a creditor over bis left shoulder or meeia one face to face. Some are superstitious about white horses, owls, aud so forth, but this man says that he never met a creditor but right away after that he heard of some one belog dunned. Another acquaintance of ours is so completely under the control of an old woman's notion that he calls down upon himself the scorn of his frleuds. Ue seems to think tbat there is something fatal about seeing a contribution box on Sun day. He therefore gets up and rushes out of church Just before the collec tion is takeu up, rather than bring disaster down upon himself and bis family. Still auotber friend of ours, who comes Into the office every few days, bas a superstition that If he were to spit lo the cuspidor he wouldn't live to get borne. Some day be will And tbat be had better reverse tbe theory, or be will meet with tha moet hoirible death that has eVerouuuired in this region. Tbe most matter-of-fact man we know, and one who would be oou- Bidered the very last to be affected by these nid traditions, says be don't care for new moons over bis left shoulder, howling dogs at mid night, or anything of tbe kind; but wben he eees a big stone ohae lug a muley cow, ho is alwayssure to hear of a uew-made grave. It is said tbat even President Garfield has bid little peculiarities in this line. Wheu we were boys together in Ohio he would never get into a watermelon patoh at miduigbt where there was a bull dog. He said tbat wherever there was a bull-dog everything was sscred. So superstitious was he about tbls kind of bird that Gar field one * said to us tbat be would just as soon rob his mother's grave as to enter the hallowed precincts where the bull-dog reigns.
