New enterprises came to the front graspLig tie public vitals like the arms of a devil-fish and the great finan cial "lnaelstrom" on California street boiled and seethed vrith unusual fury, swallowing many and many a private' fortune. The f olloTving year vre were in Oakland, and walking one afternoon on 2i"inth street with a friend, Alex M , -we met a seedy looking man of about fifty. There was nothing par ticularly striking about the face to an old Californian, nothing about the ap parel strangely uncommon, and yet the man attracted attention. The face, betokening a world of trouble, was one such as hovered round the gambling tables in the early days, and plainly stamped with the iron brand of ill luck and misfortune. Its lines were deeply cut; the hollow eyes looked out on the world in a nervous piercing kind of way, but tho hardly compress ed lips indicated that there wero burn ing thoughts within and the 'mind far from the passing events of the moment. "There," quietly remarked our friend, as we turned to take a .second look, "is a victim of stocks, and there is not a little romance in his career." Light ing fresh cigars wc sauntered on and soon learned a history familiar to only a few of Oakland's people. He had come from the mountains of Nevada county, where by industry and economy he had amassed a fortune of about $75,000 in the dairy business. The old man was tired and needed rest. The eld woman wanted to sec the world, and wealth demanded that tho children should enjoy nil its advan taqes. At first tlie -cU LJa.i was care fill. Avoiding olaeicus sharpers, fear ing glittering bubbles and applying the I! ...- .i : r twtwv- jmu'.ijkiimi in -a quiet -war however, was uiiderJ.a'clguf and dissat isfied. She plead tfith the old man for more tllsjil-j' and more exciting cn tu'rep, but the old min held the purse siring the tighter. Wealth wa inex orable, determined, .he sent envy to poison the car of the eld woman and nvy succeeded only too wclL Fresh and vigorous awault3 wore made en the old man. Ic i as "nothing," the uld woman pleaded, "that Charley, who everybody said was fit for a 'pcr fessiou,' and bound to go to the legis lator sometime," was quietly learning a legitimate business in the city. "Charley was just a3 good as Jones' boy, and Jonea' boy drove his fast horse." It was insufficient that "Car--rie, poor thing," and the old woman wiped her eyes with the dusting rag, was enjoying the advantages of "Mills' Cemetery." "Carrie must have a pi anner and a new silk and go into soci ety." But the old man was inflexible till his wife played her trump card. "No use a talkin" she cried indignant ly, "about money being scarce; look at Jones and Miller and all their neigh bors; they bought interests in the Ophir and Virginny and other good mines in Montgomery street, and the ground must be rich for they never worked any and had lots of money. The old man explained tho nature of their mining transactions, but the voice of his spouse grew only the high er. "John," she yelled, "you was the smartest man in Nevady county and my butter was tho yallerest and the best, and you allers out-traded every body, and if you can't buy mines and make money like other folks do you had better go to peddliu butter agin." Thus taunted, the old man gave way and nmde a small but successful deal hi "Ophir." He was" perfectly delights fcd "with tho old woman's sagacity and made a venture in "Overman." The old man had faith in "Overman' which was stead'ly rising, and his faith was soon rewarded with a clean up of . over six thousand dollars. Things changed now. The thrift and steady habits of the mountains were swallowed up by the follies of the me tropolis; John drovc-his fast nag at the sacrifice of his employer's interests, and Carrie, taken from the Seminary, was submitted to the hands of a fash ionable dress maker and f airly launch ed, into society. The old man, aston ished at his previous stupidity,- was now a constant habitue of California street. He became familiar with words that were before strange and un meaning; he knew tho value and im port of "margins" and "shorts;" un Wrt i rili.asssssssssarTI derstood thoroughly ths relative posi tion of "bulls" and "bearf and still venturing continued to wiaL Not that he escaped an occasional Tob from an angry "bull" or a scratch from a sullen "bear," familiarity with danger only bred contempt for it and he played higher and higher until his infatuation was compbte. Ophir was riung again, and he Ts-invested, selling at a slight profit. Upward and stiJf rehrr went the stock, and the olcTman &s&nfjiiBi mistake, invested heavily at its highest figure. Consolidated Virginia had made more fortunes than any stock on the market, ic was still a favorite and sure investment, and the oli man wild ly staked hi3 remaining means on it Meanwhile, matters were changed in the humble household. Tho old man had prayed, like the Persian king, that hi3 touch might transform all things to goldj and money had flowed in so pro fusely that the heart of his wife was crystalizing into bullion. Charley drove his team now, associating with tho young bloods'of the. city,. playing a littlo with stocks, understanding the mysteries of faro, and beginning to ap preciate the dangerous pleasures of tho sample room. Mere neophytes of fashion, the females of the family sub mitted tamely to its tyranny. Festivi ty and lavish extravagance ruled the hour and it was soon apparent from tho hollow checks that Carrie, only a delicate exotic from tho mountains, was fast withering in a strange and impure atmosphere, and tho mother alone was happy. There was a quiet stagnation before the terrible financial tornado that swept av-ay the earnings of so many that year; only a hushed and easy lull, not recogniz3d as a precursor but at tributed to ether causes. Breaking with an unforeseen suddenness, it burst upon the Bay city carrying away jritirs swecvinj way fortunes. Scarecly escaped tin ment, iiisiantlyTCRr!HlWTItijtcle- graph, produced the wildnst excitement. Our cM friend rushed in terror to Cal ifornia street. Pushing his feeble frame with the strength of dosperation among the maddehed and surging crowd of brokers and speculators he learned that Ophir had been melted away like a reef of sand before a Ne vada cloud burst that Consolidated Virginia, to him aprospective moun tain of silver, had crumbled into dust and loft him almost a beggar. Dis mayed, maddened, desperate, remorse ful, the old man crossed the bay to his Oakland home but the crudest blow was yet to come. Confronting his wife with tho unpleasant news, he was received with a storm of reproach and invective; upbraided for being so fool ish as to invest at a dangerous time, and for lacking wisdom and foresight; and was finally driven like an outcast from the home his industry had reared and his prudence had saved from the wreck. This was the crowning trial. Tho warm love of maidenhood that had made the old man's youth happy had been turned into hatred. The steady affection of the matron that had strengthened and sustained his man hood even the love of his children was absorbed by tho passionate desire for display; turned into selfishness by the contact with fashionable folly. For days and weeks and months the old man wandered, frequently about his old haunts, but tho pitiless waves never returned a fragment of his for tune, and tho only concession over made by his family was the permission to return on payment of his board. The son is only a young man "about town" whilo Carrie, so brilliant, so full of promise is fading away among .the demi-monde of the great city. Strip ped of their romantic surroundings, tho. bare facta in this sketch will be recognized as a history that might- be told, only too often, and it will bo rec ognized by many as a sad and true history of a broken and ruined house hold. Capt. Goodall, an old pioneer of this county, who used to be in good circum stances in early days, is now old and crippled, making his home at our Coun ty Hospital as one of the indigent poor. He served in the war against the Mod ocs, and was also Gen. Col ton's second in a duel to be fought with Dr. Cabaniss across- the Oregon line, but which was settled by the intervention of the attending surgeon selected by both Eidee. "Yreka Journal." THE BOniK 3II.VC OTVSEK5 rKOBABLY 841 1; Geo. A. Nourso writes to tho "Bul letin" on the subject of the Bodie land titles. It has been he says, many years a question in the land offices and courts whether the United States act granting tho lGth and 36th section of each township to tha State for school purpose, would hold good when ,thoso sections included mineral lands. In Higgins vs. Houghton Vce Supreme Court of California during tho April term of 1864 held emphatically that tho lGth and 3Gth sections went to the State under any circumstances, what ever their character. The case of Sherman vs. -Surch has been cited as affirming this decision. That is a mis take, for in this case the land in dis pute was agricultural, "not mineral.' Our Legislature has claimed, in accor dance with the Higgins and Houghton deeision, in the " act regulating the sale of mineral lands belonging to the State." approved March 28, 1874. The case most in point is thus stated by Mr. Nourse. This question came up in tho United States Land Office, in the matter of the application of the "Keystone" and other mining corporations for patents fronTtho United States for their mines and mining claims. These were in Amador county, on a section 36. One Henry Casey had applied to purchase from the Stato the half of section 30, which embraced these mines, and tho State of Calfornia, through him and his counsel, opposed the issue of patents to tho mining companies on the giound that the title of tho whole section had already vested in the State of California by the school land grant of all sections 16 and 36. No means wero left unemployed to impress this view upon the United States land offi cers. nics, J. claimed, among otherjjfjju ineral I.tlsrrnrTnT. 1 r. and 36, not pass by virtue of that grant, but remain tho property of the United States. After a contest of great bit terness the decisions of the Land De partment of the United States, sustain ed this view. The United States Register and Re ceiver at Sacramento, the Commission er of tho General Land Office of the United States, and finally, tho Secretary of the Interior, sustained the claims of the mining corporations, after full and elaborate aigument at each stage of tho proceedings, adopting this view of the operation of the school land grants. After the mining companies had obtained their United States patents, the grantee of Gary D. "W. Gillets, armed with a State patent for tho half section, brought suit against the "Keystone Con. M. Co.," inthoTwelth District Court, for the posession of their mine, which had been in possession of them selves and grantees for over 20 years. Tho action was transferred to the United States Circuit Court (the plain tiff being a citizen of New York), and was tried during the past year beforo the Hon. Lorenzo Sawyer, Judge of that court, without a jury. It was elaborately argued in printed briefs, and considered by Judge Sawyer with even more than his usual thoroughness -the amount of stake being very large. Ho rendered an oral opinion thorough ly discussing the matter, and, as one of the grounds of Ms decisions in favor of tho Keystone Co.. he held that the school land grant of March 3d, 1S53, was not intended to embrace, and does not embrace any sections 16 or 36 which are mineral lands. As yet there has been no writ of er ror sued out in this case. If it -shall go to tho Supreme Court of tho Unit ed, States we shall probably have a final decision of this mineral land question. I cannot doubt for a moment that Judge Sawyer's decision will be sus tained. Tho irradiation of countenance ex hibited by a bridegroom at tho mo ment he leads his chosen one before the altar is certainly very beautiful; but, by way of comparison, did you ever ob serve the face of a man who, taking down his winter coat and shaking out the moths, dives casually into ono of the pockets and bringing up "a forgotten quarter It is estimated by Secretary Slier man that tho sales of United States four per cen t. bonds next year will reach 250,000,000. TUE TCLLJS ASSASSINS. Sacramesto, January 10. Tho Court House was thronged all day. Tho first witness called was Edward Anderson, for the rebuttal of Dye's testimony, but tho defense admitting that Anderson did not influence Dye, tho witness was excused. Doctors Simmons, Hittell and Tyrrell tesificd to the present sanity of tho prisoner. Recess was taken, after which the Court again met The pr?&oiier ''joK-Msseat, but at at once exhibited signs of spasms and ho was taken out for half an hour and restoratives were administered, so that at 2-15 the trial was resumed. C. R. Swift of San Francisco, counsel for tho Tullis heirs, commenced tho argu ment for the prosecution and spoke an hour. He was followed by J. N. Young for the defense, who spoke two hours. Recess was then taken, At the even ing session tho District Attorney con cluded his argument at 9:30 o'clock. Ho was followed by Creed Haymond, who made an eloquent appeal for tho mercy and sympathy of jurors, which lasted two hours. The argument of counsel for the prosecution lasted till after midnight, when Judge Denson delivered his charge, which reviewed in tho usual manner the questions of reasonable doubt, circumstantial evi dence, tho plea of insanity, etc. Tho jury retired, and at 1:25, after a half- hour's consultation, returned a verdict of guilty of murder in tho first degree. Dye was then remanded to the custody of the Sheriff and directed to appear for sentence on Friday, tho 24th inst. Counsel for the prisoner asked for suf ficient time for consultation, as he did not yet know what steps would bo taken. Tho trial of Anderson comes on to morrow at 10 o'clock.

Senator Grover, of Oregon, has not particularly distinguished himself dur ing his political career; indeed, ho is never heard of except when he gets in to somo disreputable scrape or other; but his disreputable scrapes are gener ally frequent enough to save him from prolonged obscurity. First, ho was mixed up with Tilden and Patrick in the shameful attempt to reverse tho choice of tho people of Oregon for pres ident; then ho was ground through a senate investigating committee on a charge of buying his seat; and now a legislative committee pillories him for plundering a variety of state funds while governor. If Grover likes fame, he is getting plenty of it. St. Paul "Pioneer Press." Southern Oregon Railroad. The people of Jackson County, Ogn., are making a determined effort to organize a company to build a narrow gauge rail road from Jacksonville to Ellensburg, in Curry county, or to tide water, where vessels of 300 tons can bo reached. Tho distance is from 90 to 100 miles, and it is estimated that the road can be built and equipped for S10,000 a mile. The road can follow the course of Rogue riv er, and a preliminary survey can be made for about 3,000, which the citi zens of Jackson county aro subscribing money for, aided by those of other sec tions equally interested, which effort deserves encouragement and support in this section also. Such a roadif built, would.no doubt be soon, extended as far as Ashland, within 45 miles of Yre ka, from which point it could be extend ed to Yreka for less than S100,000, and give us our San Francisco freight at all seasons of the year, for less than half what wo now pay. It would also bo tho means of reaching a market for surplus products of Southern Oregon and Northern California, hero great, er crops could bo raised if we had any opportunity to ship products at a rea sonable rate. Resumption was successfully ac complished on January 1st, and a Washington telegram of Januarv 6th states that letters from banks in vari ous sections of the country, received by the Treasurer to-day, say they are re ceiving more gold than they are paying out Treasurer Gilfillan expresses tho opinion that the gold balance in the Treasury will increase largely, and that in short time it will be as diffi cult to put gold ontas it THE OU) EJIJIA JIINC CISC CniCAGO, Jan. 11. Judge Moore is engaged in hearing a suit growing out of the once notorious Emma mine!. Tho camplaint is by F. A. Bragg, who claims one-thirtieth of tho profits of tho mine between 1868 and 1870, and a like share of the amount for which tha mine was sold to the English company. It seems that m 186S an association was started here, consisting of F. A. Braccf, James Smith, Tarhes-f;t Tarleton Jones, tor the purpose of mak ing a speculation in silver mining. Smith was furnished with money and sent out, and after an unsuccessful trip he struck tho Emma mino and, it is claimed, bought a one-sixth interest, which ho was to divide equally with his four parteners, but when he found tho mino was a paying venture he for got his agreement He died in 1872y after reaping 1,000,000 profits, most of which ho spent. The mine was sold in 1871 to alt English company for 5,- 000,000, with which sale the public is familiar. Bragg claims a fifth of this ono sixth interest, both in the immense) profits and the amount ef sale. Tha caso was begun three or four years ago, and a very large amount of testimony has been taken. Steelo and Jones' and the representatives of Smith are mado parties defendant. s TKICJU'II OF SCIE.NCi', Chemistry never achieved a more do-' cided triumph than in tho production ofSOZODONT, which is a botanical preparation of wondrous efficacy in preserving and beautifying tho teethy rescuing them from decay, and render ing them as white as alabaster.

"Wo learn that Mr. Griswold, to releaso his sur e ties, gavo himself up to tho marshal, he having been put tinder arrest at tho commencement of tho trial and having" given bonds with A. Bush and J. F Miller as sureties. Tho marshal took tho receipt of Sheriff. Ben Norden for the defendant who was in the Portland' jail at last accounts but will no boubt have the privilege of tho jail limits, which included 500 acres, so he will have breathing room. Under tho U S. law he will probably havo to remain under nominal durances for 30 days, when ho can make oath to his inability to pay the judgment of S35,000 ren dered against him and that will release his sureties. This presents the case as tho facts and probabilities reach us. Our advico to Griswold would bo to pay the judgment, or at least Dowell's half of it as soon as possible, for Dow ell rivals tho mills of the gods that grind slow but exceeding fine-a verita bio Nemesis. Salem "Statesman." The English are enormous consum ers of sauces and jellies. Tho latter are made by the ton in tho London manufactories out of old hides, sheep and calf-skins, old kid gloves, buckskiir breeches, horses' hoofs, scraps of leather, size and glue. During the Crystal Pal ace Exhibition in 1851, hides in Lon don advanced cent per cent in price, on account of the great demand for jellies in the refreshment rooms of that city. Cargoes, instead of being devoted to tho use for which they wero imported, that of boot and shoe-making wero bought up by tho manufacturing con fectioners for jelly making. A telegram from Washington in forms us that the Pacific coast has eight "life-saving stations." How many of those aro provided with boats, and how many hours would it tako to get tho crew together and launch a boat at the few stations that are equipped! Tho S. F. Com. Herald says: Tho life-saving system of tho Pacific coast is at present devoted to saving tho lives of federal officers, who would starvo to death if their salaries were withdrawn, and they wero left to face with work.
