Herald Steam Fr luting House. The faollltles of the Hkrai.d Steam Printing Hons* for doing Job work are uot surpassed In Calilornia outside of San Francisoo and Sacramento. All work en trusted to as will be executed with neat ■teas and dispatch at the lowest living rates. aWKCIAt. FIOTICK. derearteriioiio.es of companies,socie ties, ohnrohes, etc, will only be inserted in the HKKAi.n as paid advertisements. We reserve, for Places of Worship, a grat ia directory, which will appear every Sunday morning. The rumor bas agaiu gained ground in San Francisco that the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe has bought tbe Santa Cruz Narrow Gauge Railway, witb Its splendid frontage on the bay. Such a pur obese would at once place the Eastern corporation on a footing of equality with Its rival tbe South ern Pacific as to all terminal facil ities at the Golden Gate. The President of the Narrow Gauge has lately returned from a visit to the East and tbe negotiations are supposed to bave been perfected during bis stay tbere. The warring factions of tbe Democracy In San Francisco do not seem ta bave given a thought to the consequences of their sense less dissensions upon the status of tbe party not only this year but next, Tbe municipal offices might be surrendered without any per manent Injury to tbe party of the State, but a bad blood is being en gendered which will extend Its ill effects to the far more important Gubernatorial, Congressional and Legislative elections of next year. Tbere has always been too much of tbe New York system of politics in tbe San Francisco Democracy, tbe only difference being tbat in stead of one there are a number of Jobn Kellys on tbis side of tbe continent, on a reduced scale, of course, but all thoroughly imbued with tbe spirit of faction and tur bulence. - The editor of tbe Argonaut thinks he has accomplished a very clever thing wheu be collects a long list of O's and Macs, and points to tbem as tbe exemplars of Democracy In San Francisco. II tbat gentleman were only disposed to extend bis inquiry, he would find tbat persons of Irish birth or descent abound in tbis oountry in numberssufflcieot to form a respect able directory of themselves in any good sized oity or county. He will find these names ou the signs oi multitudes of the most enterpris ing and successful business houses of tbe United Htates. He will find thtm adorniag bench, bar, pulpit, tbe tripod of tbe scientist, tbe ros trum and the roster of every army on tbe civilized globs, and always achieving more than their fair share of distinction. Tbe fact ie that, though tbe Argonaut may sneer at tbe race witb "little less tban little wit," tbe Celt naturally always tarns up on top If he has balf a ahow Id tbe battle of life; and tbe Irish bave, in a special manner, illustrated this fact In every nation on the earth. No sooner do they get out of their own oppressed and poverty atrioken country than they rise, like a cork in water, by force of tbeir elaetio and versatile abili ty. Tbey not only succceed in sus taining tbe weight of the terrible O's and Macs which adorn the patronymics of so many of them, but they, io many Instances, im part to tbem an admirable grace and luster which tbeir detractors would vainly essay to share. Tbe Democratic politicians of Han Francisco are doubtless liable to attack on many counts, but some more tenable ground than their names must be taken up to make the arraignment either sensi bie or Impressive. V7i are glad to learu tbat eubrts ars being made on a large ecale to increase the Caucasian immigra tion to this coast. Several gentle men of Ban Francisco are matur ing plans by whicb large ranchos shall be purchased and sold to im migrants on favorable terms. Their present plans have reference mainly to tbe Northern and Cen tral portions of the State, out tbey are deslrouf of extending them to tbe South as well. Los Angeles, San Diego, fjanta Barbara, Ventura and Han Ber nardino oounties oSer aumirable opportunities for the establishment of theae colonies. Tbe newoomers, ia locating in l.os Angelea and San Bernardino more especially, would ba surrounded by prosperous settle ments', established on the same plan, by whose experience he would benefit greatly. Riverside, Pasadena, Anaheim, Westminster, Banta Ana, and otber flourishing neighborhoods, which were all substantially established on the oolony plan, although some of them were not professedly so, are pregnant with Instruction to tbe tyro wbo Is starting out to build np a homo and modest competency In this Stato. On th* other band, there aro lyiog about tho flotsam •ad Jetsam of othor projects whloh owald not, ia tho nature of things, bar* boou auoooooful, aad whloh ought never to bave been under taken. These, also, would be use ful as guides. Mr. Creighton, of tbe editorial staff of tbe Evening Post, is tbe leading spirit in tbe new movement. The aim is to bring over from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the Scandi navian countries only such people as would be highly useful in devel oping the latent resources of our State and who would add both to our financial and industrial stand ing. The San Joaquin ranch, iv tbe southern end of Los Augeles couuty, tbe many fruitful rauchoe towards tbe Coast, like the Cerrl tos, Centinela, etc, the Laguna and tbe ample expanse of the Sau Gabriel and San Fernando valleys, would afford homes whereon tens of thousands of industrious men cjuld achieve comfort aud inde pendence, and tbat in the finest) climate on the American conti nent—a olimate which ia Bhown hy tbe official tables of temperature to be superior to that of the far-famed Mediterranean coasts of Italy and Africa. We have been careful to mention only sucb regions as are absolutely reliable, where eitber tbe rainfall is abundant or the moist nature of tbe toil renders Its quantity a matter of comparative iudillerence, or where the facilities for irrigation, either through run ning streams, lagunas or artesian wells, are unquestioned. Ten years ago Los Angelas county was still looked upon as a "cow coun ty," the picture being relieved by I tbe fact that we then grew a few oranges and made a little wine and brandy. Nine years ago the region upon which are now located Westminster, Orange, Tustin City, Santa Ana and tbe highly prosperous farming settle ment of Gospel Swamp, was a mere sheep range, with scarcely ft dozen bouses on its whole expanse. Now those settlements poll four or five hundred voles eaoh, and an Im mense amount nf enduring wealth •ud prosperity bave been created therein. Such ranohol as the Csn tinela, even Hve years ago, were regarded us tit only for pasturing cattle or sheep, yet tbls year four teen thousand acreß of lho prettiest wheat hIU barley in California were raised nn the Centlnela. The approaching early completion of the Southern Pacific Biilway toa port on tbe Gulf of Mexico, taken together with the low rates for im migrants to tbis Coast which tbat Company has promised to estab lish, will make it a very easy task to direct an immense a >w of popu lation to California. It will natu rally gravitate towards the most attractive sections of Southern California, that portion of the State being the first reached. In view of these facts our people should either start iv to inaugurate an im migration movement themselves or affiliate with that which 19 be ing formed in San Fraucisco. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.

San Francisco, Aug. llth.—At the mint investigation tc-day director Burchard testified that he considered the wastage at the Ran Francisco mint in 1878-9 as unusu al, consequent upon the receipts of a large quantity of low grade bul lion. Tne Wrung Boon Killed. San Frakcisco, August llth.— Qeorge Mason, Sheriff of Marin county, Jack Gannon and Bill Barnes, while bunting deer on Coleman's ranob, back of San Ra fael, this morning, shot at a buck but missed, killing a Chinaman, however, who was uot seen by the hunters. cnerlea Crueller Interviewed. San Francisco, August lltb.— Charles Crocker, President of the Southern Pacifio Railroad, was in terviewed by a Bulletin reporter to-day. He said the oompany was laying a mile of track everyday beyond El Paso, Texas. Tbey are grading from the otber end of the road and bave tbe road graded 125 miles and 60 miles of track lei:l west from San An tonio and will have the entire line completed hy July, 1882. When this work is finished it will give the Southern Pacific a line tbrough to witbin a few miles of Galveston, Texas, and to witbin 100 miles of New Orleans, where a connection with Morgan will probably be made. Crocker thought tbe plai of consolidation between the Union Pacific, tbe Atchison and Topeks and tbe Texas Pacific, recently tel egraphed, was possible, but said It was improbable. If the plau was really to be carried out the South era Psolflo and ihe Central Paolfls are prepared foreuoh a contingency and expect to have, sbould suob a programme be successfully carried out, an eastern connection a long lime before tbe completion of sucb a road iuto California. In answer to tbe question If he ri ferred to ibe Palmer narrow guage or Denver and Bio Grande railway, Crocker said tbat would be a pretty good outlet and probably sufficient, but in case tbere sbould be such a combina tion as the one referred to, we will bave an outlet of our own. We now bave an engineering party in tbe field surveying a line from Co riane through the South Pass, by way of Ham's Fork coal fields, thence down the Sweetwater to tbe North Fork of tbe Platte, thenoe following down the Platte about 100 miles and crossing over to tbe bead waters of the Niobrara river, and tbeuce to Yankton, Dakota. We are assured tbat this is a very tine country aud capable of Immense agricultural de velopment. The grades ou eueh route would be much lighter tban those on the Union Pacific and fully as easy of construction. We expect to build a line through that country for about one-third of what tbe Union Paciflo cost. At Yankton, of course, we would con nect witb tbe whole Eastern sys tem of roads, all of which will be willing to unite with us aud do business on Ibe best terms. We would prefer not to build such a line, preferring to be in harmony with tbe Union Pacific people, and to do business as was iuteuded by tbe act of Congress forming the two companies, but at tbe same time we propose to be on tbe defen sive and, in case of any antago nism, to protect our interests aud those of our constituents. Mr. Huntington informs me that there is no difficulty in raising the capi tal to oarry out tbis enterprise, and we intend to carry it out providing the combination spoken of is per fected and attempts made to carry out its project, as reported. Oretfvai Mall Itoui*-*. Portland, Oregon, August 11.— A. G. Sharp, of the postal service, haß beeu visiting various portions of this State iuspectiug routes aud making such recommendations to tbe government as be deemed ex pedient. His principal objeot was to investigate alleged Star route frauds. He spent some time iv these investigations and so fsr as could possibly be ascertained he discovered uo new developments of fraud or Irregularity on auy of tbe routes other than has beeu repeat edly published. The postal servioe over the Baker City and Prioeville routes, iv Eastern Oregou, was In vestigated by the Postal Agent of this State and Washington Terri tory some time since aud he recom meuded that the service be reduced to twice a week, as tbat answered the present requirements of the public. This recommendation has been acted upon. Sharp, after traveling over tbe Call m City and Camp Dermott and Eugene City aud Priueville routes, found the service unnecessarily frequent aud reconimeudel »,reduction. The re ports recently published to tlie tf feet that Sharp had made new de velopments in the Star route crook* edueee 18 denied here on tbe beet authority obtainable. EASTERN.

All pus se creted by tbe wound Is now dis charged spontaneously every day. lie fact tbat tbe quantity is not co large as heretofore does not indi cate that any is retained, but is rather an evidence that the suppu rating surface is decreasing in ex tent, oi, in other words, that the processes of granulation and heal ing are going on favorably in the deeper parts of the wound. Tbe surgeons are of opinion that this is lire best day tho President has had since the middle of last week or since the beginning of tbe febrile disturbance, which led to the oper ation of Monday. The patient had, between 10 and 11 this forenoon, a breakfast consisting cf boiled chi-ken, a piece of toast saturated with beef juice, aud a cup of tea. In addition to tbls he bas taken at intervals during tbe day milk, meat extract and other nourish ment, enough to make" up au ag gregate of about 25 ounces of solid and liquid food.
