W II Rhodes known exten-
by the nom de plume, Caxton,
delivered a lecture in San Franciseo
recently on the subject of earth-
qnakes. He ascribes them to el ec-
tricity, and electrical action of the
earth's surface, and not to gasses
generated in the interior of the globe,
He contended that earthquakes could
never occur during the years iu which
auroreas previlcd, and declared that
a series of auroreas would begin this
winter and continue nineteen years;
consequently there was no danger to
be apprehended from earthquakes for
the next twenty years, and then we
bo ppose property holders may look
out for another shaking up.

Not below cr beyond the province
of journalism is any subject so con
nected with the well-being of society
as that which we have placed at the
head of this article. Our paper goes
into hundreds of families, and we
wish it to go not only without carry
ng au evil influence, but freighted
with benefit to those who read it.
With this view we store it with news,
and mingle with its utterances some
words of counsel, and occasionally of a
caution. Politically wc espouse the ;
cause of regulated liberty against
tyranny and bondage. Wc take the
sarac position in relation to the con-
veutionalisms of society. "No des-
potism" is our essential principle, and
in conformity with it, we give a few
ords of counsel and caution suited
to the title of the present article.
Some of the old moralists were

' The newly elected Missionary
Bishop of Oregon and "Washington

of Germantown, Fa., was consecrated
in Philadelphia on Sunday, Octo
ber 25th.
The election of the Ilev. B. W.
MonTs, Hector of St. Luke's Church,
Germantown, as the Missionary
Bishop of Oregon and of Washington
Territory, has been characterized by (
degree of wisdom in counsel, and j
unanimity in action, which is an
honor to the 'Church, and must be
overwhelmingly gratifying to the ob
ject of so decided a preference. Mr.
Morris has been too long and widely
known iu ,the Church to need, at this
day, any detailed statement of his
peculiar qualifications for the work
to which he has been called. The
favor with which his name was re
ceived when first scut down from the
Ilonsa of IJishops.attcsts the Church's
appreciation of his mmi-deria! record,

comes in tones too loud- and distinct
to allow the intrusion of any mere
local or selfish considerations. And
the same remark will apply to Mr.
Morris, with whom the decision of
the question now rests. Many, and
powerful and tender, arc tho ties
which bind him to his native Diocese,
and to the scene of his ministerial
labors. But there is another scene
on which he dare not close his eyes.
It is that witnessed at his election to
the Episcopate, when the bund of
Providence was distinctly visible.

President's Message has been
received. He repeats tho old story
of wrongs inflicted upon the people,
growls about the tenure of office bill,
refers to the finances of the country
at great length, raid closes with a
chapter upon foreign relations. We
have perused the document, and agree
with our cotemporary of the Ore.
qoniaii that it is an insult to the na
tion, and that Congress should have
refused to receive it. "Any one
knowing nothing of the willful obsti
nacy of the acting President would
suppose that he had not heard the
verdict of the people upon the mcas
ure. which he condemns. That por
tion of the message which relates to
finances is a repetition verlalim of an
electioneering document which he is
sued in October in behalf of Seymour
and Blair. It is extremely fortunate
that the country is so nearly done

On the occasion of visiting the
cemetery ministerially on the 23d ult.,
Rev. C. W. Todd wrote as follows to
tho Advocate :
To-day, for the second time since
my recent arrival in this city, I !mve
visited our graveyard, either time to
see interred the remains of a little
child. The one. to-day was a sweet
babe of ten months, the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Bralley. They laid
their little one not by thc side of kin
dred dust, but among strangers, as
many have done before them, in this
land of strangers. .The same was not
true of the first ; "it joins partition
walls in its narrow house with two
brothers aud a sister of the same ten
der infant years. T.aey were the
loved treasures of Mr. and Mrs. J.
M. Bacon. As I saw these fond pa
rents weeping as they nestled this
sweet form beside the three that had
passed on before, I wondered if thev
desired to call these little ones back
again to this world of sin and sorrow;
their forms sleeping so quietly, and
their spirits so happy in the presence
of Him who could stoop to bless a
little child. Is it not; "thought I, a
thing of blessed memory, to have
these d?ar little ones in 'that happy
land to beckon you thither, waiting
to greet you on that glad shore. How
beautiful, in anticipation, to see these
littla plants spring np side by side to
an immortal life ia the resurrection
morning. No, fond parent?, wish
them not to return to yon, only per
severe until you shall rest with them.

Orcyou City, Dec. 1!, 18CS. j
Through favor of Wells, Fargo & Co.
wc have files of San Francisco papers up
to the 3d inst.
The Alia gives the following in explana
tion of the nature of tho San Francisco
markets :
Thc Grain market has been more firm
and steady without any considerable
transactions during the week. The nature
of the market is not generally borne in
mind, and some confusion arises at times
for want of perspicacity on the part of
market reporters. The wholesale market
here is the one which regulates prices, be
cause it is the one which takes off 5.000,
000 sacks out ot 7.000,000 sacks produced;
or, in other words, the whole crop, less
the 2,000.000 sacks rerpiired for seed and
consumption. The cargo purchases made
lor export constitute the wholesale mar
ket, while the sales of job lots for ilourinaj
is properly the retail market. The one is
distinct from the other. Sales are some
times made for local use at prices which
are no guide to what cargo lots could be
had for. For instance, by way of illustra
tion : The local demand is equal to about
oli.OOO sks milling "Wheat per month.
There may be a .short supply of milling
qualities, and millers may pay, say c l
for small lots ; at the same time there may
be a superabundant supply of shipping
qualities, for which there is little demand,
and it would be difficult to realize Si SO.
It is seen at once thai to quote the market
SI would give a very wrong idea to
holders id Wheat at a distance. Thc quo
tation of small lots sold for local use at
fancy prices, is erroneous. Jt does not
give any id.-a of the market. Again, there
may be a lair supply oi shipping W neat
u,,on tI.c ma;k-t. sav;).ooo sack. which
is offering at :?1 7". because the local trade
does not want it and exporters are not
buying ; at the same time the commission
houses usav be aware, from the mode in
which Wheat is held, that although a few
thousand sacks are offered them at SI 7a.
they could not buy full cargoes without
having to pay fl SO. They might, con
sequently, quote the market to their clients
at $1 7 ."(.. 1 f0, wiihout incurring the
charge of giving false report.
Instances might be multiplied where
the want of a proper distinction between
the wholesale and retail market has led
to wrong impressions. At this moment
there are few orders in the maiket. and
perhaps 1.000 tons could not he bought
under. SI on the other hand, 1.000
tons could not be fjohl ci 80. That is
uV?ut the u r n- c'.ir.e
wiocn hfts taken plac3 in freights, from
-.1 to 2 i:.s., is equal to 5 cents rise on
Wheat. That is. Wheat shipped at $1 75;
with freight 3. is equal to Wheat at 1
SO. with freight at Zl 13s. This decline in
freight Iras been due to the incrtne.-o of
the export trade. The vessels that come
under home charters must be loaded, and
purchases are made in that view. The

lower than California AVheat. Private
telegrams are occasionally circulated for
speculative purposes, all'ecfing to throw
discredit upon tho cable ivports. but the
latter proves to be correct. For instance,
on the I.'tih of "November the cablo price
was 12s. -id. in Liverpool, aud certain par
ties here, being then buyers, circulated
' private telegrams'- that carso lots were

" private U.degrasn'" sty that ' sales are

abide by the cable. The price at this date
