Every oue wbo bag lived on tbe Paoill j Coast during tbe past teu years baa btd occasion to notice tba grand and lofty tumbling of tba managers of tbe Texas Paoifit- Railway. Tbis road and its man agers always were sensational, tparadlo and of a Jeremy Dlbbler complexion, so to speak. Col. Tom Soott originally gathered together all the adds and ends of John C. Fremont's Memphis and El Paso laavinga, taekiog on the Interna tional and other eflete projects. Fremont's brother-in-law, tbe laiin 1n ni'r" was imprisoned In Franoe on aooount ef bis tblm ble-rig performances in tbat country as tbe representative of tbe Mem phis 4 El Paso road, and if John Cbarlea himself oould bave been baled before a Parisian court he would have fared similarly. For tanately for tbe bero of the Mari posa treasure fields, he kept snugly within tbe United utates, and thus escaped personal disaster. When Col. Scott bad gathered together ail tbess peonliar odds and endi be made a great flourish of trumpets—greater, by far, than sufficed to blow down tbe wallf of Jericho, of old. He started on a progress through Texas and Lou isiana, and wound up at New Or leans. Thence swinging around tha circle, he came out to the Pa- olflo Coast via tbe Union aad Csv- Pacific Railways. Accom panied by Senator John Sherman, Soy. Throckmorton, of Texas, Col. John W. Forney, Dick McCor mlek, and men of like reputation and consequence, be dropped down to Ban Diego. In tbe rink at tbs olty of Bay and Climate, be un loosed bis eloquence and talked about completing tbe Texas-Pacific to tlda water at tbat bay iv three, or, at tbe most, iv five years. These pleasing auuounoements were made In August, 1872. Un less the amiable lately deceased Col. Scott meant to make a traves ty of the whole matter, the road from Texas to San Diego should bave been completed by August, 187S, or, at tbe farthest, August, 1577. As a matter of fact, as tbe result of all the spread-eagleism in dulged in by bim at San Diego, about five miles of tolerably level roadway ware graded from Han Diego through Old Town, aud through tba time-honored old race track, spoiling tbat, and doing no ■'earthly good besides. If our mem ory serves us rightly, one or two inexpensive culverts were built In that distance. Ultimately all tbe ties and piles whloh had been or dered to San Diego were sold to the Southern Pacific Bailway. Insignificant as were Seotl's per formances, he lied In suob a moun tainous and unblushing way to tbe paaple of San Diego that he per suaded them to give bim lands around tbe Bay wbicb tbe Colonel assured tbe writer would be worth $•.000,000 when he got his road through. Without oue tittle of value received, the people of Sau Diego gave him tbeir very valuable lauds aad Incurred obligations for right of way, depot site and other matters, whiob press heavily on those con- tiding burgbera to-day. If possible, Scott's Texas Pacific was even a more mammoth hum- bog tban Jobn Charles Fremont's Memphis & El Paso road bad been. While Scott was attitudinizing In magnifidentformasagreat Railway Klog, raking in largesses and land grants, be absolutely did nothing aa a railway builder. His precious Texas Pacific road is to-day very little farther west of Fort Worth than it was in 1872. There has been an absolutely appalling amount of lying concerning tbis Brummagem road, aud we note that, sines it bas passed into the hands of Jay Gould, tbe Ananias features of it bave increased lncal- oulably. In reality, the Texas Pa- olflo bas forfeited its land grant a hundred times over. When Jay Oould gave Col. Scott (4,000,000 for hie interest in the Texas Pacifio be really purchased tbe biggest piece of railway imposition on tbe Amer ican continent. Remembering the lying pronanoiamientos of Scott, we really doubt whether, to-day, Jay Oould ia laying rails at tbe rata of a mile a mouth, instead of tba two miles a day speed with which he le represented to be ap proaching tbe Pacific Coast. Ob the other band, the Southern Pacific Railway wbicb, as respects Arizona and Now Mexico anu Texas, neither asked for nor ob lalaed any land granla or subsidies ttrnm tha United States govern' from Tulare to El Paso single banded and alone, is now confront ed by tbe Impudent Jay Oould with obstructions to tbeir further pro gress, and with brszsn intimation tbat tbeir road-bed is unauthorized, is in contravention of tbe rights of tbe Texes Pacific and is liable to forfeiture. Certainly pure and un adulterated obeek has never been brought to au equal stage of per fection on tbe American continent before. Hereafter tbe rhinoceres and the hippopotamus must blusb for tbe thinness of their bides in view of tbe toughness of tbatof the ordinary railway capitalist. As a matter of right and justice measures ought to be taken, imme diately, to declare forfeited the land grant to tbe Texas Paoiflo in tbe town site and around tbe Bay of San Diego, and for a cancella tion of tbe fraudulently obtained bonds issued by that unfortunate municipality iv aid of the Texas Pacific, although tbe latter, as it would aftect tbe rights of third par ties, might not be expedient. Then is really not a legal or an equitable title inhering iv this buccaneer corporation to a rood of laud in ci near San Diego. These is nothing mealy mouthed In the way tbe Chinese deal out punishment to criminals. Capital sentences are promptly carried out in the case of insur gents and certain other classes ol criminals, where delay might en danger the peace of tbe country. In such cases even tbe looal magis trate is empowered to sum marily take life if he deems it necessary. But ordinarily the executions throughout tbe empire take place simultane ously at tbe autumnal equinox, at which time tbe Emperor visits the Temple of Heaven to olear himself of the sin of shedding blooJ. Hence if an order criminal is sen tenced tbe day after the autumnal equinox, he baa a whole year of life still before bim, Moreover, for a certain time before the equi nox the Minister of Tortures re ceives aud examines the lists of the condemned from all pans of the empire, tun! reports to the Em peror the names nt those least de serving of olemency. The Emperor then orders some to be exeouted forthwith, and respites others for another year. The sealed lists of the doomed are carried to all parts of the empire by couriers. On a fixed day all the sentenced crimi nals are brought ta a public place, where tbe sealed lists are opened aud the Emperor's orders carried out ou the epot. Same are be headed with a sword or a common knife; some are straugled by being dragged over the ground, for the jlbbet Is not used in China. Be heading ia regarded more Bhame lul tban strangling, for the latter leaves tbe body whole, while the former dismembers it. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.

MoAuley, assistant melter and refiner, was put ou the stand by tbe complainants to prove tbai Mr. Dodge, [Superintendent, knew that bullion unfit for oolnage was sent to the oolner. The witness testified such to be tbe fact as be said tbe melter and refiner had often complained of the faot, but tbe testimony was not allowed as it was uot shown tbat complaint* were made to Dodge. Witness stated tbat the oftener bullion was remelted tbe more loss tbe govern ment sustained from wastage. F. B. Cieott, until lately coiner of tbe Mint, testified tbat In some eases tbe bullion sent to bis department for coinage was exceptionally bad and the metal bad to be rehandled, entailing additional expense. He oalled Dodge's attention to tbe badness of the metal. He ac companied him to the. ooiner'e room and showed bim the evils ef using bad metal, bat tbere was ..no remedy applied to do away witb tbe evil. On account of tbe Infe rior bullion the extra work will average one month in a year and tbe expense amounts to over •12,000 per annum. The witness considered Superintendent Dodge either wllinlly negligent or How Rlrale prison Directors *Jet Their >'»j San Fbanciioo, August Ist.—ln the State Prison Investigation Ellis, clerk at tbe prison, described the manner in whioh the Directors' mileage was paid tbem.

It came out In Ever son's examination tbat Director Chapman, wbo lives in Chioo, bad received from tbe State $3800, in cluding bis monthly salary of $100, since January, 1880, up to July 31st, 1881. Sniolde—Supposed to Have Been Poisoned—Bobbed by Cowboje. Tucson, August Ist.—A corret pondent from Camp Thomas says that Sergeant Bergen, Company B, Sixth Cavalry, committed isui clde on Saturday by shooting him self through tbe mouth. Reliable Information from Bowie station bas it that the mysterious death of five men a few days ago was due to poison. It is blnted tbat itwas the result of a conspir acy to seoure certain mining inter ests owned by tbe victims. Bowie is so remote from the seat of justice tbat no steps bave yet been taken to ferret out tbe bottom facts. Bonora news says tbat on tbe morning of tbe 26th a parly of Mex icans irom tbe interior, on tbeir way to Arizona to purchase goods, were attacked at a ourve in the road at Las Auimas, near Frou teras, where they were eating breakfast, by twenty cowboys in ambush. The Mexio ins tied, leav ing their mules, pack-Baddies and $4000 in coin as plunder to tbe cow boys. When they resebed Fron teras there were four of their party missing, wbo, it is believed, were killed. A large number of Mexi cans are after tbe cowboys. All malls from the East bave been ordered back from the break on tbe Atchison, Topeaa and Santa Fe Railroad to be sent via San Francisco. New atallroad (Juiaoisuvrd Eureka, Nev., Aug. Ist.—Grad ing was commenced on the Eureka and Colorado River Railroad to day. Two gangs of men were set to work and it is said that the force will be increased from day to day. Tbe superintendent asserts tbat be will bave thirty miles in operation by Christmas. The com pany was orig.nally organized by citizens of Eureka who lately sold the franchise to the Denver and Kin Grande Company. Tbe urice paid to the luoil company was $50,000. This Eureka branch is destined to connect with Hie Deuver and Rio Grande at some point iv Utah, near Iron Mountain, Souora Ileuia, Guaymas, July 23, via Tucson, August Ist.—The schooner Lotus, the bark Lizzie Marshall, Ihe barkentlue Wrestler and tbe schooner Excelsior, all from Ban Francisco, arrived to day, bringing about 52,000 ties for the Sonora railway. The track is now laid 57 miles out from Guaymas aud 31 from Hermosiilo. The 17th was the tenth anniver sary of Juarez's death aud all the flags were at half mast, that of the American Consulate inoluiled. We are without any mail since about two week 9, owing, us it is said, to the Mexican government refusing to pay the stage company which passes through Magdalena its regulaj subvention. EASTERN.

Boston Budget.l We bave imported the latest fashion in gait for young ladies from tbe London teuneties, a lan guid, willowy, weary wobble, wbiob is now all tbe rage lv that city, wbicb may be pretty enough in a garden where a girl studies a new blown rose with a spirit of un utterableness, but In our publio av enues, undimmed by tbe mellow ligbt of a drawing room and tbe rich colorings of artistic banglngs, it is awfully absurd and comical. How can It be described ? Tbe body sesms to work on a central wire; the bead is bent foi waid, the elbows pressed to tbe sides at aoute angles, tbe neck is rigid, tbe Dose turned up and consequently the chin, tbe hauds bang down and the feet jerk. Two teeters are required to begin this amble, which ia compared to the jump of tbe kangaroo. A phy sician tells me that the gait is more dangerous to the health than tight laoing, as it may bring on curva ture of the spiue, imbecility, eta Strong girle may survive It, but weakly once will almost inevita bly become invalids and die early wbo practice tbis hideous attempt at graoefulnees. Tbe writer can not forget asking a pretty girl not loag since to walk with her, and being surprised to find she had one gall for the house and another for l lie atreet. She drew ber arms very v 1086 to bar bips, stuck out ber heed, bent ber body forward and made a prance whloh was half polka step and balf tba stately minuet; while ber bands bung [down in six buttoned gloves as carry anything to save her soul. The mental judgment was that she was Idiotic; but no, reader, she is not Idiotio. she only follows tbe craze In fashion, whatever It may happen to be. Will Retire to Private Life.

"No," replied the Senator; "no, most emphatically. It has been said It Is possible that I may be brought forward as a candidate in tbe nest oampaign, but I am not at all solicitous of tbe honor."
