SATURDAY .OCTOBER 11. 1879 Mr. Toombj, of Georgia, has written oat bli prononnced viewi upon the re lations of tailroads to State, and al" tbosgh we do not go mnoh npon the al; old eoon, we believe bis Tiewi wilt meet with the approbation ot all persona not in the employ ot or controlled by railroads- True, Mr. Toomba is somewhat severe upon the monopolists, bnt then be is no more severe npon them than the railroad companies theowelves are upon the gen eral public He says: "We have the right ot eminent domain; the right to tako all the railroads in the State for publio erne, when the publio interest de mands it, by paying just compensation. If wa pay just compensation only, we can sell for the same, after putting tbem under the law." General Hancock appears to te gain ing favor with the Democracy in the East as their candidate for the Presi dency in 1880. The Philadelphia Frees says that Hancock' friends are to estab lish at Washington a Hancock head quarters, immediately npon tbe reas sembling of Congress, aad that other measures will be taken to inaugurate a Hancock "boom." Hancock baa many supporter among the Southern politi oians. Alex. H. Stephens declares Han- cook is the strongest candidate tbe Bern- orata can nominate. Other prominent Southerners have been interviewed, and it i said that the Hanoock Bureau will not lack for material to give their favor ite a good send off. W. W. Hobart has purchased Fred. Fisk's interest in the Eureka Leader and that paoer will hereafter be under tbe charge of Messrs. CanGeld & Hobart. Mr. Sarah Norton, one of the original locator of the Mount Diablo coal fields, wa killed near Nortonville, California, on the 6tb, by runaway horses. The Chronicle, of Sao Francisco, has now the largest, finest and most thor ough newspaper printing establishment on the Pacifio Coast. An Indian known as " Peeving Tom" bad ft band-to-band encounter with a lot of bears one day last week, on the mono tain above Buck's ranch, whioh must have been a terrible battle. He was bunting in tbe locality spoken of and found a " bear wallow" in a little valley and suddenly came upon five bear. He say that be shot one, killing it, when another attacked him. Hia only depend enoe was in bis butcber-knite, and witb this be managed to kill the second one. About this time aholner attacked him, and the conflict must have been fearful. Fart of the Indian'a scalp was torn from his bead, bis face badly lacerated and hi arm, side and one thigh fairly "eaten up. Mo bones were broken, however, and he managed to stagger and crawl to the road, where be was found and taken to Buck's ranch. Mr. Wagner dressed hi wound and at last aocounts be was improving and in a fair way to recover. He says be would have been killed but that he kept his face down most of the time and let tbe bears bite at bis back. A party went out to tbe scene of the fight and found the three bears dead and tbe Indian's knife sticking in one of tbem. He mult bava been "game to the backbone," and deserves tbe title ol tbe "boss bear hunter." Nevada City Herald.

The following extract from u letter written by a young British officer in Zo Inland to a friend is published in Lon don: " I flatter myself that I put an end to the career of six promising young Zu lus. We expected no quarter, and gave none. When tbe fighting was over, some of our native troops were sent out on tbe (to tbem oongenial) errand of dispatch, ing tbe Wounded, many of whom bad crawled away into the lone crass, and von into tbe ant-bear holes, but our allies were even with them all round.

A Timet' Washington special eay seTeral weeki ago reference was made in these dis pstches to tbe fact that tha Treasury officers had determined to investigate tbe importation of sugar from the Sandwich Islan.le with a view of ascertaining whether the augir admitted free of duty at Ban Francisco under the provisions of the reciprocity treaty as a product of the Sandwich Islands was not, in reality, the pro duct of other countries brought by the way of the Sandwich Islands in order to evade the payment of the duty. Assistant Secretary French stated to-day that so far as investigating the matter was concerned, he wss convinced that all sugar purporting to come from the Sandwich Islands is produced in that country, according to the treaty stipulations, is admitted free of duty. Be expressed himself as decidedly in favor of the abrogation of the treaty which exempts from Custom dueB all articles preduccd or manufactured at the Sandwich Islands, and said thtt, although he could not state otliclaily that Secretary Sherman would recommend such abrogation, he felt certain that such would be tbe case. His reason for this was that, as the treaty now operates, it is entirely one sided, and of no benefit to this country. It is prob able that this subject will occapy the attention of Congress early in the coming session. An Ottawa, Ont., special says the Government to-day advertised for bidders for the construc tion of 127 milesDf railway, from Vole to Kama loop, British Columbia, to be received up to the 17th of November. This settles the question as to the terminus of the Canada Pacific Itailroail, and the route so far as British Columbia is cou earned. The section for whicb tenders are called is a part of the llarrard Inlet route. It was ready for tenders months ago, but, pending the results ef further explanations in tbe Peace and Pine river regions, to the north, nothing was done. This new line will bo expensive, but it will open up a very fine region. A Washington special to tbe world says: Sen ator Morgan, of Alabama, returned to-day from California. He thinks the Grant ovation there spontaneous uprising of tbe people, to wel come a brave and successful man. That, he thinks, it the extent of its significance., and whatever political aspriations Grant may have they will not be furthered by anything that has happened in the west. Nevertheless the World again declares Grant the inevitable candidate of the Republicans in 1880. Chicago, October 7 The Times has full correspondence touching the expedition of Major Thornberg. Assistant Adjutant General Williams, at Fort Omaha, has compiled it for the purpose of answering ad' verse newspaper criticisms. It shows that Thornberg was selected ss the man most fit for the task,, by orders of the General. The army, it calls attention to the fact, as shown by the correspondence of Agent Meeker and the Gov. ernor of Colorado, consisted of one hundred mep, sufficient to enforce order among the In dians. AlBO that Thornberg himself regarded the three companies of cavalry and one of in. fantry, in all two hundred men, that he took with him, as amply sufficient for the expedition Thornberg was cautioned by tolegram, sent after he was well on his way, to advance with prudence, and if he had reason to believe his force insufficient, to communicate with head quarters and call for more troopB, which he would receive, no was advised that tbe matter was left entirely to his discretion. On Septem. ber 30th, Thornberg sent his last telegram from his camp on Bear Creek, Colorado, which was as follows: " Have met some of the Ute chiefs here. They seem friendly, and promised to go with me to the agency. They say the I'tes do not nnderstand why we came here. Have tried to explain satisfactorily. Do not now antic! pate trouble." The conclusion is that Thorn berg. one of the most prudent and discreet of officers, was thrown off his guard by the sav. ages, and the blame can neither be imputed to him nor the Department. Rawlins, October 7. A letter received this morning from Lieut. Price, at Fortification Creek, nays: " Have seen no Indians in the vicinity. With my 29 men can stand SOU IndlanB. A compsny of the Ninth Cavalry, CO strong, reached Payne yestorday morning, ihe 2d instant." From the above, which is entirely reliable, there is probably no doubt but what Payne's command still exists. The news creates a great deal of rejoicing. San Fbancisco, October 7. Dudley Haskell, who shot Charles Schwartz some weeks ago, baa been new to answer with bail nxea at io.uoo, wnicn was xurnisiiea. Mr. K. T. Elliott, in the Popular Hci enoe Montblv lor August, bsts: aenor Altamirano, of Mexico, the best Aztec sobolar living, olaims the proof is con elusive that tbe Aztecs did not come to Mexico from Asia, as has Iodr been nui versally believed, but that they were race originated in tbe nnsabmerged parts of America, an old as tbe Asiatics tbem selves, and that that country may have been even populated from this, f rom the ruins receutly found, the most north' ern yet discovered, tbe indications of improved architecture, the work of a di ferent aee, can be traced iu a continual obsin to Mexico, where they culminate in massive and imposing structures, thus giving proof by oircumstnntial evidence to Altanianuo reasoning. Tbe new In a sensible editorial on tbe Sunday question, Boohester Herald says: "Tbe limes which admitted of snob views as tbe sanctity of partienlar day and hours are past, and rationally religious people now believe that all time is saered to a conscientious man, and that what he ought not to do on the first day be will not do on the second or Buy other. And o far as those people wbo are not con scientious are conoerned, tbey cannot, ol course, be expected to ait in straight back chairs and read hymn books all day Sunday, while their more religious neighbors attend church."
