At 1 o'clock the court took n recess of nn hour for dinner, and upon reconvening nt 2 o'clock it began with renewed vigor and the court room was quite dark when nt 6 lust evening it adjourned until 9 o'clock this morning. The first business was the naming of the grand jury ; and as soon ns this was completed the jurors retired to their room and settled down to business. It is composed of the following men: K. f Lee, foreman; L. V. Brown, J. V, Acken, G. Lnnkford, J. M. Ho v tier, I. H. Wood ward, J. K. Glider, 0, W. Brile, R. II. Urank. I. W.

Many of the young man's friends mid neighbors were in the court yesterday, and there wassome conflicting testimony. The bov took the stand himscll and told Solicitor Carter that he didn't know the difference between a plea of not guilty und one of guilty, and then he was told to stand down.

In a case of some interest nnd import ance, a witness who hail plainly licvn drinking too freely was lined by Judge Moore $10 und sentenced to two days imprisonment. "This allowing men to enter the witness stand intoxicated will not lie tolerated," he said very pointedly, und the prisoner was taken to the jail. The court then adjourned until this morning.

Despite the efforts of the fire men und the marine guard the tire ex tended into the machine shop, uud help was then called for from this city. The steamer Kearsargc and hose company were immediately sent over the ferry on n steamboat, aiid with these reinforce ments the tire was confined entirely to the two buildings. The two buildings were built in 1K5-0 und constructed in "stilt" fashion, granite pillars, being set upon n heavy foundation, and the rest of the building constructed of wood.

COLD IN THE WEST. Sixteen Feet ot Snow t'poti the Mnllroad Track. San Francisco, Cat., January 27. The railroad officials at Sacramento suc ceeded in having communication for n short time late last night with the Truekec officer on the eastern shqie of the Sierra mountains, when it was learned that the snow is sixteen feet deep on the track between that place and the station five mile west of there.
