Eames, Jr., returned last Saturday from New York where he has been attending the Columbia Law College. An exchange truthfully rerriarks that the real business life of a town is shown in the advertising columns of its newspapers. The Eries defeated the Forest City Club last Tuesday by a score of 2 to 1. Owing to the rain oti'.y five innings were played. The filing of a petition in bankruptcy of James Ward is announced, with liabili ties over fl,500,000 and assets not over 1100,000. On drill nights, squads from the Ash tabula Light Artillery are engaged in pick ing np absentees on the streets and escort ing them to the armory. The Kansas letter received from an Ashtabula friend, we will endeavor 'to make room for next week. In the mean time we would like to see the writer. Treasurer Cook, has purchased a house and lands in Jefferson, just south of the Tillage and domiciled himself and family thereon, as we learn from the Oazette. There were 52 applicants at the Teach ers' examination at Jefferson last Tuesday. Of the 92 candidates at Austinburg, 44 received certificates, and 21 of the SI at Pierpont. Another of those meaty letters from the pen of our California correspondent Ed will be found in this paper, and no fail to impart. The Literary society of Kingsville High school will give an entertainment at Academy Hall on the evening of Thursday May 16, consisting of essays, orations, etc. Principal. Capt. Anson Luce, to the astonish ment of all his friends, has so far recov ered from his recent severe illness, that he is able to rise from his bed, dress and move about the kouse. We have now a sort of Billiard block in town. Beside the new billiard room in Dick Radford's old store, Siujonet has ta ken the new store of Dr. Bartlett, and set Tip his tables there. Hon. S. A.

Boon, of Ashtabula, ha gone into voluntary bankruptcy." The above is from the Cleveland Leader of Monday last. Will the Leader aow be so kind as to tell us who Mr. Booh is ? The Senior of the Standard is out again and that radiant phiz has settled back to its normal proportions. His fan cy does not run particularly after mumps as an ornament or as a sanitary condition. New time schedules have been issued for the railroads centering here. The A. Y. & P. takes effect next Monday morning and the L. S. & M. S. Ry. and branches on Sunday.

A great many large black bass are being caught with hooks, and the fishing season may now be considered fairly open. The water is lower in the Sault St. . Marie Canal this year than nsual. Vessels of the tonag of the H. H. Brown, Mc Gregor and Verona are not bringing down this season as much ore, into one to two hundred tons, as tbey did last. " Landlord Field goes to Cold Water, Mich, with Little Jake for the rases that are to open an the 15th iuat. Jake has been entered for the 2 -28 trot. A car load of bones from Fredonia and neighborhood was to have gene through on Monday last. Oil city was visited by a shower on Tuesday evening accompanied by thunder and lightning, and the spire of the Main street Methodist church received a charge of electricity and was badly shattered, sending fragments all around the neigh borhood.

' We have never noticed the ground so completely covered ith young maples, in the neighborhood of old ones, as this sea son. North Park instead of that beauti ful mat of green grass that was to follow the efforts of the late Council, now pre sents a thick growth of young maples. A matronly Robin Red Brwt built her nest among the grape vines that stretch around the cornice to the porch of the edi torial cottage, within a foot or so of every head that enters the house that way, and there she sit steadily engaged in the work of incubation, without fear or disturbance. When you see a man with a string of black bass, make up your mind that he never caught them, all the reports to the contrary notwithitanding. We will ven ture the assertion that four-fifths of all the bass brought into Ashtabula Harbor are caught by a Portugese, who makes, that his business. The fishing at the Harbor being now open for the season, those desiring a few hours sport should bear in mind that Jack Schrara is again ready to furnish all who apply, wilh boats, fishing tackle, etc., at reasonable rates. He has just launched two new boats, one a sail boat, which are now ready to Ut. The reader especially the lady read erwill find a report of Mrs. Hayes' re ception in Philadelphia, communicated by ouroccasional correspondent Miss Thropp which is drawn up in her usually happy style, and touches those points of bearing and toilet, which the cultured lady will de vour with intense relish. A celebrated law-suit, running through several courts, and up to the courts of the State, has just been decided in Indiana. It was all about the ownership of the fa mous stallion Blue Bull. Old Blue Bull is valued at f 25,000, being the sire of some of the most valuable trotters in the coun try, ne is owned in Rush county.Indiana. Dr. D. S. Hall, has reached his family and home via Saginaw, in rather prostrate condition from an affliction of the spine. His residence at the Hot Springs of Ar kansas, did not prove very beneficial the change from the malaria of Saginaw to that of the Springs, reduced, rather than built him np. Time will be required for a restoration. Mrs. Senator Plumb reached town on Thursday evening last, from Washington, where she parted with the Senator. She has the appearance, and enjoyment of ro bust health, such as has not been her wont in years post. She is stopping at her brother's, Mr. A. A. Southwick, and is not decided whether to return to Kansas or to Washington. We find the following floating about among our exchanges: A Diary written by the late Joshua R. Giddings has just been discovered at bis old home in Jefferson, Ohio. It covers an entire session of Congress (1848-49). and is said to be a faithful portrayal of Mr. Gidding's thoughts on the national topics of the day. It is about time that the gangs o! loafers on our streets be broken up. All of last Sunday and late into the night Main street was occupied by these loafers, many of them drunk and all of them dis orderly. Ladies going to and from church in the evening were seen to turn back rath er than pass through these crowds and run the risk of being insulted. ' Albert Harmon is to start the season with a new skeleton trotting wagon, the paint of which is now seasoning in the show room of Messrs. Thorp & Pfaff. It is a fine piece of workmanship, and as light, gossimery and tasteful as could be desired, and yet, is so strengthened and secured as not to jeopard life or limb. Its weight is hardly an impediment to speed. An important astronomical event will occur on the 29th day of July nextr-a to tal eclipse of the sun which will be visi ble generally in the United States. The eclipse will be yisible from 4 to 6 o'cloek in the afternoon. The path of totality in this eclipse runs diagonally across the centre of the United States, from Montana to Texas, and is between 120 and 150 miles wide. The name of the Erie railroad has been changed ; it is now the New York, LakeErie and Western Railroad Company. A regretful -and lumbering change from the short, easily written, Erie. If the names of some of the shysters who have victimized it and made its way like Jordan a hare! road to travel, could be blotted out with it the inconvenience may be put np with. Our Potato Bugs have made their ap pearance, but do not appear to be numer ous, and the coolness of the weather is not favorable for filling their mission. Ytt they are depositing their eggs.

This will no doubt help mat ters somewhat, but many of the pitch holes are too deep for the scraper. More radical treatment is requisite. Giving the Mayor a turn after the black mare, the other evening, we were glad to find that he was sensible of the forlorn condition of the roads cf the village. In "Scribner's" for May Dr. Eggleston's paper on "The New York Post Office," with rich illustrations, takes the first place. There are illustrated art ides also on "Onr Pete and Protectors." apropos of the com ing dog show, upon "Camps and Tramps about Ktaadn," and "Bird Architecture." Bayard Taylor furnishes "An Impossible Story;" there is another "Rudder Grange Sketch ; and the serials are continued. -The Culley manufacturing company hare on hand some 20,000 feet of white wood part of a lot of more than 40,000 feet furnished by Plympton Williams, from the farm of Mrs. Cooper, that is seldom equaled in range of quality, breadth, &c, Some of the stocks are three feet wide and others thirty-two inches, and all of good width, and nearly free from culls. Not withstanding the quietness of trade, this company is doing a good business, and their orders come from all along the lines or our roads. A little sensation was raised on the street on Friday morning, by the arriva in town of the wheelbarrow man, on his way to ban trancisco, having started on the 10th of April, from Albany N. Y. stipulating to make the trip in 250 days. This is an estimated average of 13 miles day. Thus far he has made from 21 or 22 to 30 a day, and has already a surplus of 5 days. If he makes the journey in the allotted time, be will be entitled to a purse of $1,000. His barrow and load weighs about GO pounds. He is quite confident of success, if his health continues. The subject of this proposed exploit, is what Shakespeare would call "a slight uumerit able man," in no way designed by nature for endurance, except that he has a good supply of hair. His name is R. L. Potter, a natives of Warren, Trumbull Co. and connection of Judge Potter of that county. Mr. E. C. Goddard, of Orwell, is so jonrning in Kansas,and writing very read able letters to the little Welcome about that State. Another Letter from Mr. Thorp. T.d Tel: In replv to your several edi torials of April 20. in which you persist in the charge that I gave as a reason for op posing the harbor improvement bill that it was agaiiift the interests of Geneva and Conneaut, I desire to say distinctly, that when at Ashtabula I called in company with Mr. Field, upon Mr. Fisk, a member of the Council. In the course of the con versation 1 remarked that the growth of AshfjtlllllM mf.rht Ka .arraiiwt thf illtPre.-tS ot Geneva anf Conneaut, but that I should not be influenced by that, my only pur pose in alluding to it at all was to assure Mr. Fisk that whatever action I might deem it my dutv to take in the matter, I should not be influenced by any considera tions of localitv. I assert upon the ad mission of Mr." Fisk himself made to me Dersonallv. that he did not during that in terview get the impressions that I should oppose the bill for tho reason that it would iniure Geneva. And I further assert most emphatically that I have never said, any thing to any mortal man mat wouiu in the slightest degree justify either the direct charge or the inference that I opposed the Harbor improvement bill from local consideration. Trulv Yours, Columbus, Apr. 27, 1878. F. THORP. That Conversation. Eds.'Tel: As several of the papers of the county with Mr. Thorp, have under taken to deny the conversation that took place between Mr. T. and myself, with re gard to the passage of the law enabling the village of Ashtabula to impose a tax for the improvement of its harbor, I have to say, that Mr. Thorp did say to me in the presence of Cupt. George Field, that the growth and general prosperity of Ash tabula, would be injurious to Conneaut and Geneva, and left me to infer that his support of the bill then pending, might net be depended upon. If such in ference was not intended, I am at a loss to understand the object of the introduc A. C. FISK. I fully concur in the above statement. GEORGE FIELD. Ashtabula, May 7, 1878.

Horse Notes. a It has arrived at the lime of year when we expect to read turf items, but up to this date but little have we noticed in the Telegraph. Mr. Kelsey of Kingsyille, already has spent considerable time and labor en his track, located 2U miles east of Kings ville Centre, and has now got it nearly to perfection, except the descent on the long st rs tehes, but that is said to be bet ter for new beginners than a perfect level Kelsey has two horses of his own in training. One a 4-year-cld he bought when a yearling of the "Blazing. Star" strain. She bids fair to become a fly er before the season closes. The other is a small black mare, with one front, and one hind white stocking, she came from Crawford county, Pa. Kelsey could at first sight see in her a trotter. He can see trotters where Poor Lo could see Gods. Besides these are other horses in this vi cinity that are owned' by sporting men and they propose to opea the first meeting of the season next Saturday at Kelsey's track, weather permitting. Then a week from Srturday the 18th at 2 o'clock p. m there will be a crowd to witness several scrub races where the purse is already put up between Stant Merriman and a Mr. Craytor for a half mile dash. Let this an swer for an invitation to any of the Ash tabula Boys who have a lofty stepper on hand to come down and Kelsey will show them that there are other nags in the county that can get around a circle in as good shape as his "Little Jake." The exhibition will be free. So come down boys and let us have some sport. Yours for fun. Amboy, May 7, 1878. LEW. a The Driving Park, on the Field farm has been thoroughly surveyed through the courtesy of C. E. Sloan, and staked off ready for the grading. The desire is, sufficient help can be obtained, to make the grading as perfect as possible, and thereby have a track equal to any in the the county. Every one having an interest in securing this end should help the ob ject by a contribution in cosh, or labor grading. Messrs. Southwick or M. II. Haskell, will accept contributions either kind and apply them to the best ad vantage. a Mr. John S. Sill was on Sunday last, installed an Elder of the Presbyterian church of this village an office which was held by his father for several years before nsueatn. The Sabbath school of this church, over which Mr. Gilkey has for sev eral jears presided so aceentablv. clnso.l its year last Sunday, and Mr. G. offered ins resignation, and the election of a sue cessor was postponed one week.

Peck, of Rome, hut become the landlord of the hotel of that place. Police Court. Albert Warmington had a hearing be fore Police Justice Richards last Monday morning. He was charged with drunken ness, resisting officer and disorderly con duct and was fined $5. Warmington, in company with Albert Crosby, was on Main Street last Sunday evening, both of them being in an intoxicated condition, when Officer Seoville attempted to arrest Crosby. Warmington assaulted the policeman and struck him with his fists. The policeman then turned upon Warmington and after a lively chase succiedsd in capturing him on Park Street. Warmington then struck him again, which was returned by a blow from the Officer's club, which opened a gash in the young man's head, tie was soon secured and taken to the lock-up, where his wound was dressed. The police man returned and searched for Crosby but was unable to find him, nor has he been seen since. A warrant, however, awaits his appearance. Martin Russell was again in the clutches of the police lost Tuesday night fordrunk enness and disorderly conduct. Justice Richards fined him $3 and costs the next morning. Rebuilding. The work of rebuilding on the corner of Main and Centre streets, the scene of the late fire, may now be considered as fairly commenced. Newberry having excavated for a cellar, is now at work laying the foundation walls, for a three story brick building, ene hundred feet deep and twenty-two feet wide. Fifty feet of the first floor will be occupied by himself as a drug store. In the rear of this, on Center Street two small stores will be fitted np which will have a depth of twenty-two feet. Messrs. Brake and McMillan have the contract to erect this building. Dr. King has commenced on the founda tion of his building, which will be one hundred feet deep, two stories high, of brick. Mr. Geo. Russell has the contract for its erection. The Loan Association had a force of men and teams at work Wednesday and Thursday excavating on its lot. This building will be fortv-five feet deep, twea--two wide and two stories high. Bar Meeting. At a meeting of the Ashtabula County Bar, held at the Court House in Jefferson. May 6th, to take action on the death of Abner Kellogg, Judge N. L. Chaffe, was chosen Chairman, and E. Jay Pinney, Secretary. The meeting then adjourned until Tuesday evening. Tuesday evening May 7th, meeting was called to order. On motion that the president appoint a com mittee of five to report resolutions. He named S. A. Norlhway, C. Booth, F. R. Smith, E. C.

Our tobacco dealers are becoming a little interested in the asserted change in the tax on tobacco, as it would probably seriously affect them through their stock on hand. The article given in the Tele graph last week, was taken, we think, from the associated ptess dispatches. It was to the effect that the Democrats had got the tax reduced to 16 cts, from 24, in commit tee of ways and means, and as it is con nected with the new income tax bill, may as the matter now looks, pass during the present session, or at least some of the Democrats seem ternbiy in earnest about it. KINGSVILLE. if Eds. Tel: According to notiee, Rev. Binkley of the M. E. Church in this place, and Wilson of Conneaut, exchanged on Sunday last. The morning sermon of Rev. Wilson, was peculiarly happy. It was bas ed upon the Songs of Solomon, in which the beauties of nature furnished the thought. Our county surveyor Fickinger has call out in the country, nearly every day, in the way of his profession. There is not much to exptct from the muddled brains of the average financial tinker of the times, and yet we don't ex pect to have much trouble with any kind of dollars that come within reach. The dollar of Mexican manufacture, is abeut the only one we get a sight at, is these rough looking customers. Though our gov't officials refuse them. The Mexican if it will settle our accounts, and redeem us from the thraldom of debt, we hail their friendly presence. A goodly quantity- them find their way among us. Knowing you have an eye for a good horse, let us speak of the team of A. B, Maltby, of this place, reeently obtained of Wm. Whiton. They are not thoroughly matched in color, but in action and size they are nearly Derfect. and make as fine carriage team as any pair of geldings about here. Miss Leffingwell continues to occupy Barton's block, and what she can't do towards fixing np humanity is hardly worth looking after. Her stock of new and fresh goods only require her manipu lations to suit the most difficult. Our Board of Education at thoir last session adopted the Eclectic geographies and White's antiemetics in place Guyot's and Stoadard's. Such as have the latter can now be accommodated with an exchange by calling at Kinnear & Curtisa' in this Tillage.

Tel: Mrs. President Daves accom panied her husband on his recent visit to Philadelphia. This most vxcellent woman has justly won the hearts of the people there. Her determination in the pursuit of right, good example, amiable simplicity, noble impulses make her a worthy exam ple to the women of the United States. A strong temperance advocate, banishing by her good influnce all intoxicating drinks from entertainments, is an exam ple which should be followed by every true woman. May her life long be spared for the sake of humanity, and when that time comes, which will come to all sooner or later, hr good influence still live through coming generations. During her visit to the Quaker City the utmost enthu siasm prevailed. She took great pleasure in visiting the Public Institutions, and was everywhere greeted with applause springing from genuine admiration. Her reception at the Academy of Fine Arts on. the evening of April 26th, was the crown ing of all efforts of the people to do hom age to their illustrious guest. I had the pleasure of attending this brilliant enter tainment which was one of the finest given since the Centennial. The scene was one f beauty. In system it was perfect. At 8 o'clock Mrs. Hayes entered the building accompanied by Mrs. Sherman, Mrs. Ual lowell, Mrs. Piatt, Mrs. Hartranft and oth er distinguished guests. The scene at the Academy was most impressive. The ar tists and florists did their work with won derful taste and effect. Tropical plants, trailing vines, exotics with delicious odors formed a lovely back ground for the dis play of elegant toilets. The fine groups of statuary and paintings were decorated by exquisite flowers. The finest music floated through the spacious and well planned building, hundreds -of gas lights shone like stars through the flowers down upon a scene all light and dazzling in its splendor. At the rear end of tho north room with a barrier of palms and rose bushes for a back ground stood the distin guished guest Mrs. Hayes there with an ease and grace most winning for nearly four hours did this amiable lady receive the tide of human beings who pressed for ward to be introduced the same kind smile and pleasant greeting to all not a shade of weariness crossing her expressive face it seemed, and was evidently a pleas ure to receive the people. It was a select crowd, given by the ladies of the city, no expense or trouble being spared. At nine o'clock the President accompanied byAttor ney General Devcns, Burchard and Webb Hayes entered. Govt Hartranft and staff joined him. After paying his respects to the ladies his excellency also received the people. The President has a kind honest face and affable manner. Governor Hart ranft was most cordially received. Our popular Governor deserves the homage he receives being an honorable, efficient pub lic officer and exemplary gentleman. It will doubtless be interesting to my lady readers to have a description of Mrs. Hayes' appearance. I have a respect for the weakness of my sex, which I consider pardonable. The glossy black hair was arranged in the most simple manner, the front being combed smoothly down each side of her forehead and behind her ear in finger puffs, the back coil secured by an elegant comb. Her dress' was a combina tion of cream silk and brocatelle, the front skirt of plain silk gros grain being arrang ed in deep folds or plaits and finished with deep fringe. Corsage of plain silk; broca telle sleeves, finished at wrists and in the close fitting sleeve with rushings of crepe lisse, and full ot lace and embroidery. Black drapery secured to Princess corsage, below waist of the brocatelle, and white kid gloves. Her only decorations were a cluster of cardinal poppy buds, with green leaves, an Egyptian chain of small beads in the antique links about the throat. Our amiable Mrs. Hartranft wore a corsage sacque of block velyet with ficher of point lace and a cluster of crimson and cream buds with leaves, under skirt of cream in embossed fabric, with point lace over dress gracefully draped and diamond ornaments. Mrs. Sherman's dress was a pink silk, front arranged in alternate rows of plait- ings and lace. The corsage of pearl gray decorated about the neck with embroidery and lace finish, sleeves of pearl gray which also formed the back and side drapery of the skirt; corf ure plain, front hair waved and combed from the face garnitured with rose buds and leaves, diamond jewelery. Miss Piatt the pretty neice ef the execu tive was simply and becomingly attired hair braided without ornaments, dress of pale blue silk trimmed in plaits and tiny ruffles with lace finish at throat ond sleeves. The dressing was magnificent with every hue of satin and silk. Flowers were pro fusely worn, many court trains being al most covered. One dress of pale blue silk was trimmed with black velvet and pink rose buds. It looked as if there had been a shower of rose colored blossoms, and the fair wearer had passed under, the recipient of the roses. The scene reminded one of fairy days, here amidst the finest works of art and effusion of light and flowers. Philadelphia's daughters mingled iu all their pride of fashion splendor and loveli ness. But to return to Mrs. Hayes she seemed fully to appreciate the artistic and kind manner and good will tendered her by her sweet smile and happy animated ex pression. She will return to the White House, leaving here in the beautiful city of Brotherly Love the most pleasant impres sion, and when time rolls on and these scenes are stored in memory, she will doubtless look back with pleasant recollec? tions on the kind friends she met in Phila delphia and their AMELIA THROPP. a of of all The Eighteenth Anniversary of the or ganization of the Congregational church of this village, will be observed on Thurs day evening 9th the season of the regu lar weekly prayer meeting. The few that are left who participated in that organiza tion will not fail to call to mind those days of anxious solicitude, when the cause of the church occupied their attention, and the well-fare of their Zion was seldom lost sight of. Every member was then at his post of duty, and felt the responsibility of bis or her position, and kept near the source of their reserve strength. The weight of that responsibility, and its effect upon their lives, made them better men and women better christians, and the ef fect of their thoughtful activity was not barren of progress and success. The rais ing of means and the building of their present place of worship and the gathering together of a congroeut ion to fill it, were among the results that foPowed their ft delity.

It com menced raining the 12th of Jan'y and has hardly ceased up to the present time. We have been flooded. The streams have overflowed their banks, and desolation now marks their course. From the moun tain sides the water has rushed in torrents currying away bridges and culverts, and aking the highways impassable. Our railroad has felt the effects of the deluge, vast bodies of dirt, loosened by the rain h.ive slid uncermoniouslv upoa the track. The fills have settled away, and a general washing out of the road bed has caused much delay in the regularity of our trains. Yet with all this damage, whocan estimate he good done our State; with the excep tion of the flooded district of the Sacra mento Valley, the cheering prospect comes from all grain growing sections of an abundant harvest. The grazing regions are liberally supplied with grass, and as a consequence we are enjoying good butter and cheese at Eastern prices. The past winter was a remarkable mild one, no frosts to interfere with nature's growth, and California looks like a vast garden-. To the laborer the present out look is cheerful, it opens a prospect ahead for plenty of work and cheap supplies. Already enterprises which lie dormant through the winter are beginning to revive. Our vast army of laborers let loose by the first rains of the wet season flock to the city to winter. They, like the swallows, on the approach of spring, return again to their old haunts. Kearney and bis followers are still agi tating the labor movement in the city, and establishing branch clubs throughout the country. They have had a season of appa rent success, electing two Members of the .Legislature and ether minor officers, of different municipalities. They ignore each political party, and for their guidance have laid out a platform of rules, the principle plank of which is, "The Chinese must go." circumscribed with many "Resolves" about the tyranny of capital and the op pression of labor. Its leaders though con ducting the movement with considerable ability are ungenllemanly and abusive in their language. Their followers are com posed mostly of the idle and dissolute class to be found in ever city. Unless this new department is guided by more wisdom it will die, smothered in its own slime. The year just passed has been a very successful one for tramps. Day after day their familiar forms passing by has re minded me of the nursery rhyme. "Here we go, up, up, np, And here we go down, down, downey." Tramps in this country are different from your Eastern travelers: There they have a solemn and woe begone visage, emaciated torm, lazy, indolent step, poverty in their garments and rags in their baggage, al ways hungry and bound for the next town. Our tramps are always looking for work, though the most of them pray they may not be successful. Their idleness they at tribute to the Chinese. Their language and countenances are hopeful, seldom shabbily dressed. They file by, with their blankets strapped to their backs, bound for some imaginary "Eldorado" just be yond. A change has come over them they walk no more. Men are at a demand. The lumbering industry of our coast has revived and thousands of laborers are needed. The prospect at this time is, that the present year will be the most produc tive agricultural one California has ever known. The acreage of grain sown is 30 to 50 per cent more than ever before. The harvest time is near, and soon an army of laborers will swarm these grain producing regions. At any rate the present outlook foreshadows a revival of business prosperi ty not had for some years. Last week the quietness of our winter season was broken by the Mill whistle call ing all into activity again, and we are now fairly launched into our season's work with the calculation of producing and shipping one million feet of lumber per month. To do this none can be idle. During the summer season we enjoy strange faces and boast of some activity. Situated just near enough to the city, and easy of access, we form a kind of a rural retreat for those desirous of a few days in the country. Each train brings some one after imaginary sport fishing or hunt ing. Generally one day's ramble following these mountain streams or climbing their rugged sides, sufficiently cools the ardor of the city sportsmen. They cannot en dure hardships, to this fact is attributed their lack of success. Gazing from my office window upon. these old hills whose sides, by continuous rain were rapidly changing their browa suit which the summer sun had made them. to a coat of green. For three months I had watched this change and listened to the rain, wondering if it would ever let up. All faces were gloomy. Another "Deluge" stared us in the face. The "Silver Bill" was forgotten. The China question lacked interest, and we watched the rain guage as it rapidly left inches and went buoyant ly np among the feet. I was almost ready to take back what I had heretofore said about the beauties of a California winter and began to argue a preference for snow and ice. No native Californian knows of the pleasures connected with an Eastern, sleigh ride, or the thrill of joy which the- merry skaters feel. I thought of the win ter firesides, the cracking of nuts, the disk of apples and pitcher of cider I felt home sicn. Then I read in the Telegraph: of that same sea of mud extending th length of Main street, which years before. I had looked upon. I felt the chilly March. wind blowing from off the icy lake racking: the constitution of the most vigorous, and. I settled back into contentment. Like a soldier who has been long on duty I demanded and received a week's fur lough. Getting aboard the cars one bright Sunday I again made my semi-occasional, trip to San Francisco. The country through, which we passed never looked brighter.. Crowds of people ere we reached the cityr were picked up at the way stations, laden, with flowers and the fruits of a ramble ire the country. The town and country arei so adjacent that ic is but a step from on to the other. In all directions are avenues leading to picnic grounds and pleasure, gardens, on Sundays steamers and cars are thronged with pleasure'seekers. Much has been said about "suffering people," "pinchings of poverty" and hard times in. our metropolis, but let a disinterested one. watch the gay througs as they swarm every place where mirth abounds, and it would, be hard to draw the discriminating line, which separates want and perfect content ment. San Francisco has six theatres with many underground concert halls and beer gardens, and all seem to bt well pat ronized. Her merchants complain ot scarcity of trade during the past year, which is gradually unfolding into activity. Country dealers are branching out this spring much more extensively. Farmers are gloating over the prospects of a rich harvest. Europe convulsed in war opens up to them a ready market for all surplus grain, at advanced rates. Our population during tho last year has not been materially increased by immigra tion, thus giving to those already hore a more active and higher labor market. No place in San Francisco iuterests me as much as the "California Markot." This occupies nearly a whole block, extending from Pine to California street, between Montgomery and Kearney. Fitted up with avenues flanked on either side with stalls filled with the productions of eartji and sea. Much attention is paid to the fish market, a small army of men. mostly Italians, are kept constantly employed to furuish the finny tribe; from out the depths of the ocean comes odd looking fish, of varieties much differeut from those of the Atlantic coast, all shapes and sizes, from the tinny shrimp which looks like large grasshopper, to the unwieldy sturgeon. The salmon a fish weighing from 10 to 40 pounds, with dark pink-colored flesh is much sought after. Large numbers of this fish, together with the Eastern trout, have been placed in the streams of the State within the past month. The oyster trade is getting to be of extended dimen sions, in this market. Not only are rooms fitted np where one can go and indulge in this luxury raw, on the half shell, fried or stewed, but they are shipped by the whole sale into all parts of the State and Nevada. The native Pacific oyster is small and has a peculiar coppery taste which one npon first introduction. rather dislikes but grows more palatable by constant use. These are cheap and plenty, averaging about the same price you pay for your bivalves. Eastern oysters are a luxury, and costly, ranging from three to six dollars per hun dred. They will not inorease in oar waters but grow rapidly and delicious flavored. The plants are all shipped from the East and transplanted in the waters near the city and brought fresh into market each morning. The experiment was tried lost winter of shipping oysters direct frr-m the States in tin cans, common quart cans re tailing for two dollars. These must find ready sale for our mild climate soon makes them unfit for use. Each morning from all directions comes the early river and bay steamers bringing into this market the productions of the farm, fresh and tempt ing. Fowls and game of all kinds. The choice butter and cheese of the dairy and vegetables fresh from the soil. The South ern Pacific railroad tapping the southern counties, brings the fruits of torrid clim ates. Strawberries and cherries are al ready in market Early vegetables have been so long in market that their price is now within the reach of all. The vast grassy plains of Nevada and our own fer tile hills and yalleys furnish fat and juicy beef which is carved by neat and cleanly butchers attired in long white frocks, with wide turn over collar. The appetite of man could hardly crave any luxury which could not be found. Located in the cen tre of a temperate climate, with easy, direct and quick communication with all zones. The rich bounties of providence are poured with a lavish hand into the lap of our Metropolis. In a ramble through the "California Market" one see the fruits of earth spread out before him. A con fusion of tongues greets his ear, as the children of men pass two and fro in search of the "food which perisheth." A Cos mopolitan crowd ; each can find here the peculiar dish of his native land. Situ ated as I am, among the red woods, table luxuries are a rarity, but on these trips I feast my eyes and tickle my palate with the good things to be fouud in the "Cali ED. FROM OUR EXCHANGES.

Last Tuesday being the day appointed for Brierly's examination, the Prosecuting Attorney appeared before 'Squire Gilbert and asked for Brierly's discharge without an examination. He was accordingly so discharged. Our readers will remember that Brisrly was arrested under warrants charging him with complicity with Ken nedy in raising and securing the payment of two orders. If the examination had proceeded it must have been confined ex clusively to this charge, and no other mat tars which have been developed by the re cent investigations could have been used against him. His discharge, under these circumstances has no such significance as it Warren Tribune. Sheep owners who have claims pending for property destroyed by dogs, may now rejoice.
