When the Sierra failed to put in an
appearance all day, there was consid
erable talk of. the possibility of,
something having happened to her
machinery. But the agents felt not
the least anxiety in her regard, bellev-.
ing that the new boat was delayed at
San Francisco on account of the late
ness of the English mail. At this time
of the year it is a common tniug for
the overland trains to be blocked in
the Rockies by the great snow storms.
Some1 mall steamers were as much as
two days late about this time last yea'
for the same reason.
On Friday the Rio de Janeiro is due
to arrive from San Francisco. If by
any possibility the Rio should arrive
here before the Sierra and report that
the Sierra had left San Francisco be
fore she, the Rio, had departed, then
there would be some cause for anxiety
and, In all probability, the Fearless
would be sent to look for her and
bring her in. Of course, there Is Just
the possibility of a broken shaft or
some other trouble with the machinery
of the splendid vessel, and she may
be drifting. This is not thought to b?
the case, however, and the lateness of
the mails is held ' responsible for the
Sierra'B non-appearance, up to tha
present writing.

It was remarked-by "observers 'from
the shore that the Fearles" took the
Norwegian unusually far but' before
letting' her go. Captain Brokaw
thought, doubtless, that he 'might just
as well kill two fowls-with : one rock,
and went a little farther out with the
vessel than usual to see if there wa3
