Rev. Jolm H. Acton, of the Ohio
Conference, lias been selected as editor
of the Pacific Christian Advocate.
Mr. Acton is about forty years of age
and in his prime, and experienced
and able writer, and very popular
In the course of a discussion in the

Davies, of Illinois, jnade a red-hot
speech against all intoxicating bever

The three original steamers sent

when California came into the hands
of Americans, have disappeared from
the passenger trade, but are still in ser
vice. The Oregon is a barkentine en
gaged in the Puget Sound lumber
trade. The Panama, is a store-ship at
Acapulco , and the California is a
barkentine in the Australian trade.
The proprietors of the Grand,
Occidental and Lick hotels now ex
clude Chinese from their premises.
This step has been taken under an
apprehension that the Chinese were
the means of spreading .disease.
There is no doubt that a strong dis
'position .exists in San Francisco at the
present time to do away with Chi
nese labor in large establishments.
So many persons are arriving from
the eastern States, there seems not
much trouble in doing tliis. The Chi
nese come up here and the States
emmigraiion remain there.
Tlie New York Herald publishes
an interview with George 31. Turney,
of that city, from which it appears that
tlie suit against A.T Stewart's estate
will be commenced after all. The at
torneys represent wealthy families, and
the litigation over the property prom
ises.to be long and costly. The Tur
ners claim to be third cousins of de
ceased, their grandfather and Stewart's
ffithci having, as alleged, been broth
ers. Lawyers have. been engaged by
plaintiffs, and the papers were
liled on Saturdaj. Some of the
Turney family reside in Sai Francisco.

Editor Astoiax': ' " m
For a -few ' years past, an'dparticu-
larljr since the death of olcLHanible-J
tonian, an unusual prominence in turf
and breeding circles lias given to the
two Messenger-families of horses," -the
Mambrinos and Hambletonians. Their
exploits on the turf,' as "vell 'as tlie
places they fill all over tlie land as
magnificent carriage and, road Worses,
has 'disseminated hundreds of thou
sands of dollars. A very brief history
of the origin of these two families may
not be amiss, and can be preserved 'for
Old v imported English Messenger
had a son foaled in this country called
Mambrino. Mambrino had two sons
called respectively, Abdallah ana
Mambrino Paymaster. Abdallah had
a son called Hambletonian, and Mam
brino Paymaster a son called Mambri
no Chief. Hambletonian is known
as the progenitor of the Hambletonian
family, and Mambrino Chief of the
Manijjrino family. -It will be seen
that both these families .are but collat
eral branches of the same fountain
head, and both three degrees removed
from Old Messenger in Hambletonian
and Mambrino Chief. Hambletonian
was located in New York, Mambrino
Chief among the thoroughbred of
Kentucky. Both -of these horses are
now dead. .Public opinion is much
divided as respects the comparative
merits of these two families. It will
always be decided probably by the
respective merits of their representa
tives, sometimes one way, and again
the other, and opinion will continue
divided. '"Ban Mace" the master
reinsman of the turf 'declares that
Lady Thorn, a Mambrino, is the fast-
eat ;uul L'amost m:ire tliat ever trod
iron, and he says he could have driven
: " , ,. . ,
her in 2:10 or below, at any time be
fore the miserable railroad accident
that made her a cripple for life. The
record shows that Mambrino Gift, a
Mambrino, stands at the head of the
list as the fined stallion in the world.'
The fastest recorded time of either mare
or gelding is credited to the descend
ants of Hambletonian. I may add
that it is now beintr found out that the
union of these two branches c.f Messen
ger families, as well as the infusion of
this strain of blood upon the various
other families, is producing the won
derful "trotting, road, and business
horses of America." Breeder.
