FRIDAY : : : : : : March 30th SMALLPOX IN SAN FRANCISCO. ; Tbirty-nlne Rounds Fouebt in the s It is very evident that the smallpox epidemic in San Francisco is at an end. The "Daily Alta California" of March 11th, in its editorial column, says: We congratulate San Francisco upon the total disappearance of the smallpox epi demic. The Board of Health, which had to work under :many serious difficulties, is deserving of the thanks of our people for its fidelity. With incomplete and im perfect hospital equipment, and short ened in facilities on all sides, it stood manfully to its duty. The pest was in troduced through no fault of our local sanitary authorities. The lack of a quarantine station in the harbor is re sponsible for the trouble, and for much delay and annoyance to commerce. It made heavier the labors of the Mayor and Board of Health, for as fast as they suppressed one outbreak another would be caused by the arrival of a pest-laden steamer from Asia. It was a seriies of invasions, and eacli one was met until finally the besieging disease retires from the contest beaten, apd the city is free. REDUCING THE TIME. Arrangements have been completed between the Oceanic Steamship Com pany and the New Zealand Government by which the time of carrying the mail, from England to Australia will be short ened by three days. During the last eighteen months the mail has been car ried across the Atlantic by the White Star steamers, which take nine or ten days in making the passage. By the new arrangement the mails will be car ried by the Cunard liners, which cross the Atlantic in seven days. The mail for the Mariposa was to leave Liverpool by the Aurania, three days later than if the White Star line had had the busi ness. The Mariposa, it is expected, would leave San Francisco for Honolulu and the Colonies promptly on time April 5th at 2 p. m. Intermediary Court. BSFORE JUDD, C. J. Thursday, March 29th.

Rain on French Soil Jlitebell Took Lota of Punishment Sullivan Gained First If nock-do w n. By the barkentine S. N. Castle, which arrived yesterday morning, we have par ticulars of the prize fight between John L. Sullivan and Charles Mitchell. A dispatch from London, March 10th, gives the following account of the con test: The great fight ended as not one in fifty expected it would. After 39 rounds, in which the lighter man fully used his advantage under the London prize ring rules, Referee Angle declared the fight a draw. The arrangements made last night for the fight were chaotic. Mitchell's agent, who was sent over ten days before to secure the ground, was obliged to confess he had failed to procure a suitable spot, where upon a wrangle ensued and the Sullivan party, rightly . or wrongly, charged Mitchell with trying to wriggle out of the fight. Finally the Mitchell party left the choice of ground to Sullivan's backers, who appointed Johnny Gideon of the "Sportsman" (who had filled similar offices for Sayeis), Dunning, also of the "Sportsman," and Ory, the "Sportsman's" Pans reporter, to select a battle-field. The trio left Amiens last evening for Creil, and the pugilists ar ranged to follow to-day. The impromptu arrangements made for the fight by the committee of three appointed by the Sullivan party really left nothing to be desired. The precise locality was kept secret as long as pos sible. Eight vehicles of various styles of architecture were engaged to convey the principals, their seconds and the spectators to the scene of action. On their arrival at the spot selected they found that the ring had been pitched on the grounds of Baron Rothschild at Apremont, behind the stables which face the model private race-course of the Baron. From the other side they were excluded from view by bushes and trees. Thanks to the shelter thus af forded, operations were pursued without interference, the only strangers who turned up being a few huntsmen, who presented themselves towards the finish and looked on with curiosity. A capital ring was pitched on the well-rolled clay. Mitchell talked as much as- usual, and, though pale, declared himself confident. Sullivan looked determined, but was somewhat thin in the face. When the combatants reached the ring about forty spectators weie present. MacDonald and Jack Ashton seconded Sullivan, and Baldoi and Kilrain seconded Mitchell. Mr. Angle of the London Stock Ex change was chosen referee. Jack Ben nett umpired for Sullivan, and Charley Rowell acted in like capacity for Mitchell. Sullivan entered the ring at 12 :25 o'clock, and Mitchell followed five minutes later. Both men wore warm woolen drawers. Mitchell also wore a large fighting plaster of the old style, but Sullivan declined to put one on. Sullivan sported ornamented green socks. At 12:55 precisely the principals shook hands in the orthodox old-time fashion and the fight began. Sullivan looked as though he would have been better for a stone off in weight, and Mitchell was not drawn down any too fine. At the outset Sullivan offered to back himself for $2,500, but the offer was de clined. His backers then offered 3 to 1 on Sullivan, but found no takers. In round one Mitchell indulged in a laugh over the fact that he had won the toss for corners, and put Sullivan with his face to the wind and sun, and later on to the rain. Finally Sullivan cornered Mitchell, who dropped to avoid punish ment. In round two Sullivan hit Mitch ell on the head with his right and gained first knockdown. In round eight first blood was allowed Mitchell. In nearly every round up to the thirty eighth Mitchell went down to avoid Sul livan's blows. The thirty-ninth round was exceptionally tedious. . Sullivan's right eye was getting in mourning and his lips swelling, while the lump on Mitchell's forehead had be come redder and bigger. No blood came from the latter, but Sullivan's nose and lips trickled carmine. He would not have his mustache removed. The ground was now in a terrible state. Mitchell was frequently down on his hands, but got up quickly and now seemed fresher and more confident than ever. There was, however, always a dangerous blow in John, but he did not push the fight, Charley being more in clined to f)lant one until Sullivan hit viciously and went for him. Charley was always on the alert and managed to get away. There was no use in John's racing after him ; he was too agile. Fre quently Mitchell, for a change, would take a walk around the ring. Sullivan standing still. Some four times they mutually retired to their corners to get the clay off their shoes and refresh themselves; then one would challenge the other. Mitchell seemed little hurt in the first half, and in the latter showed great gen eralship and scored best, but he ap peared to be afraid of Sullivan's right. A draw was suggested, but was declined, and between 4 and 5 o'clock all got im patient, as the finish seemed at least two hours off. Mitchell at last said: "Well, let us shake hands or fight on, just as John likes." Hereupon Baldoi, who had been very troublesome, rushed in and joined their hands. Sullivan was nothing loth, and both were tired greatly. The par ties then left for Paris. GERMAN AFFAIRS. Preparations for the Fnueral of the Iate Emperor The New Emperor Leaves San Remo for Berlin. A dispatch from Berlin, April 10th says : The body of Emperor William had been embalmed and was laid in the State Hall of the Palace. His features were placid, showing no signs of the pain he suffered. Funeral services were held over the re mains of Emperor William in the Mort uary Chamber in the Palace on the even ing of the 9th. The chamber was pro fusely decorated with flowers. Dowager Empress Augusta, the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess of Baden, the Crown Prince and the Crown Princess of Sweden and other royal personages at tended the services. The body of the Emperor lay in the same position in which the monarch occupied when he expired. A crucifix lay upon his breast and an ivory cross was in his right hand. Chaplain Egl, in his sermon, alluded to the moment when Empress Augusta held the hand of her dying consort. After service the late Emperor's Aid-de-camp, Lieutenant ' General Von Lehndoff, acted as guard of honor at the dead monarch's couch. The body of the Emperor was to re main in the Mortuary Chamber until the requiem service in the flag room on the 10th, which was to be attended by mem bers of the royal family and their suites, Prince Bismarck, Count von Moltke and the chief Court officials. Later the body was to be taken to the Cathedral, wrhere it would lie in state by Emperor Freder ick's order. In accordance with the de sire of the deceased ruler, the body was clad in the uniform of the First Regi ment Guards and enveloped in a mili tary cloak. Before the Reichstag opened on the 10th the Bundesrath met. Prince Bis marck with great emotion alluded to the death of the Emperor in terms similar to those which he used in the Reichstag the previous day. He specially con firmed statements in regard to the Em peror's dying allusions to Austria and Russia. Referring to Emperor Freder ick's accession to the throne and the transfer of the Imperial dignity con nected therewith, Prince Bismarck said the new Emperor, like his late father, would take as his guiding principle the maintenance of the Constitution of the Empire and the treaties on which it is based, and in wrhich Emperor Frederick will count upon the co-operation of his allies. Count von Lichenfeld expressed to Prince Bismarck the condolence of the Bundesrath, and asked him to commun icate them to Emperor Frederick. THE NEW EMPEROK LEAVES SAX BEMO. A dispatch from San Remo, March 10th, says: Emperor Frederick HI passed a good night last night. He feels extremely well. He drove to the station at 9 o'clock this morning, accompanied by Empress Victoria, to take the special train in waiting to convey him to Berlin. . The largest crowd ever seen in San Remo gathered to witness his departure. The new Emperor was enthusiastically cheered by the crowd, and he repeatedly bowed his acknowledgements to their greetings. The Emperor entered the railway car riage without assistance, and then turned and assisted the Empress to enter. The municipal authorities and a number of civilians were on the platform. Large crowds surrounded the station, and the Emperor raised his hat in response to their salutations when he reached the platform. He looks wrell, with the ex ception of his complexion, which is somewhat yellow. He shook hands with the German Consul, the Syndic of San Remo and others. As the train left the station the Emperor was heartily cheered. A Co to lug- Boat Race. ,' On Saturday, April 7th, about 4 o'clock in the aftereoon, a six-oared boat race will take place in the harbor between members of the Myrtle Boat Club.
