OF THE DESTRUCTIVE ACTION
Somewhat more than a year ago we
called attention to the changes -which
are to be perceived in the relations of land
and -water, the action of rivers on the
land and the influence of delta lands in
restoring land te the earth being noted
in the article alluded to, -while the des
tructive action of the sea on many points
of the coast was also detailed. In the
present instance we purpose to examine
a few of the more typical cases of sea
actions viewed in its destructive effect
upon the land, and also some aspects of
earth movements which undoubtedly
favor the destructive powers of the
- As regards these destructive powers
much depends, of course, on the nature
of the rock formation which lie next the
sea. A hard f ormatioa will, ceteris par
ibus, resist the attack of the waves to a
greater extent than a deposit of soft na
ture, and the varying nature of the coast
lines of a country determines to a very
great extent the'regularity or irregular
ity of the sea's action. A well known
example of a case in which the ocean
has acquired over the land an immense
advantage in rospect of the softness of
the formations which favored its inroad
is found on the Kentish coast. Visitors
to Margate and Iieculver or the "Be
culvers" as it is now named as a fam
iliar landmark. It two weatherbeaten
tow jr3and the dismantled edifice are the
best known objects among the views of
the Kentish coast; and to both geologist
and antiquary the "Beculvers" present
an object of engrossing interest. In the
reign of Henry VIII. the church was
one mile distant from the sea, and even
in 1781 a very considerable space of
ground intervened between tho church
and the coast lino so considerable, in
deed, that several houses and a church
yard of tolerable size existed thereupon.
In 1831 the sea had made such progrees
in the work of spoliation that the in
tervening ground had disappeared and
the "Beculvers" appeared to exist on the
verge at once of the cliff and of destruc
tion. An artificial breakwater has, how
ever, saved the structure; but the sa
cred edifice has been dismantled and its
towers used as marine watch houses.
The surrounding; strata are of singular
ly soft nature, and hence the rapidity
with which the eroding action of the
waves has proceeded.
An equally instructive case of decisive
action of the sea is afforded by the" his
tory of tho parish of Eccles in the coun
ty of Norfolk. Prior to the accession
of James VI. to the English crown the
parish was a fairly populous one. At
that date, however, the inhabitants pe
titioned the kinpr for a reduction of taxes,
basing their request on the ground that
more than three hundred acres of their
land had been swept away by sea. The
king's reply was short, but characteris
tic. He dismissed the petition with the
remark that the people of Eccles should
be thankful the sea had been so merci
ful. Since the time of the niggardly
sovereign j'ust mentioned Eccle has not
been spared by the sea. Acres upon
acres have been swallowed uy tue in
satiable waves, and as Sir Charles Dyell
informs us, hills of blown sand form
ing the characteristic sand-dunes of the
geologist occupy the place where the
house of king James' petitioners was
situated. The spire of the parish church,
in one drawincr. is. indeed, depicted as
proj'ecting from among the surrounding
sand-dune3t which the wind, as if in
league with the ocean, has blown in up
on this luckless coast. The comparison
of old maps of countries bordering on
the sea with modern charts affords a
striking and clear idea of the rata and
extent of this word of destruction.
No better illustration can be cited of
the ravages of the ocean than that exhib
ited in the maps of the Yorkshire ooast
lines, and pirticularly in the district
lying between Flamborough head and
the mouth of the Humber; whilst the
district between W ash in Lincolnshire
and the estuary of the Thames shows an
eouallv creat amount of destructive
change. Three feet per annum is said
to be no uncommon rate for soft strata
in these localities to be carried away,
and the geologist may point to GoodwTin
Sands notorious alike in ancient and
modern history as another example of
the results of sea-action and of wear and
tear exercised by the mighty deep. The
contemplation of such actions fits us in
a singularly apt manner for the realiza
tion of the full force and meaning of the
There rolls the deep where grew the tree.
O earth what changes hatt tUuu seen !
It is highly important, however, to
note that the sea received aid of no or
dinary kind in its acts of spoliation by
tke operation of certain forces afflicting
the land itself. Land frequently disap
pears from sight beneath the surface of
the sea by a process of subsidence or
sinking. "We must, therefore, clearly
distinguish between the kind which the
sea literally takes by its own act and
that which becomes its property through
this curious subsidence and sinking of
the earth's crust. No doubt the result
is practically the same in each case
the sea being in either instance the
gainer and the land the loser. But the
sinking of land being a phenomenon
less familiar to the ordinary reader we
venture to note a few of its more prom
inent aspects. Chambers' Journal.
General Sherman's Peculiarities.
The inevitable paragraph about the
last set of girls General Sherman kiss
ed, in Oregon this time, has followed
the old man to Washington. Very few
people take more pains to exercise this
privilege of greatness than General
Sherman, and I fancy it is a sort of con
stant gratification to the warrior, that
it takes forty odd young ladies to repre
sent the Union of States in his day,
when Jackson had to put up with a
score. And General Sherman does
not confine himself to the American
young lady in her representative ca
pacity. He kissed the Oregon young
lady as all the world knows. He kiss
ed Maud Harrison behind the scenes at
San Francisco. Infallibly he had done
the same thing here if she ever played
here. WThen Mary Anderson played
last winter. General Sherman filled the
entire front of a box with his applause,
clapping like a school-boy, and when
her benefit came aronnd, his entire staff
had to take tickets enough to insure
the success of any benefit. In a good
many ways Sherman is a burden to his
staff. He never wears full- uniform;
but it was laid out for him with great
care, Monday, March 5th, last, for the
inauguration, straps, swords and spurs.
It was hard to see how he could go
wrong. He appeared at the Capitol late,
flushed, bothered. The staff blushed for
its chief. Trouble had gone for naught.

A party named Atcherton came up
from New York last spring and built a
house for summer boarders at Lake
Lomond. He put up a three story
building with aJFrench roof and piazza,
and made "a very fine place of it. He
also erected a barn, for stabling. Mr.
Atcherton was not an early riser, loving
his bed too well to get out of it before
noon. . .One morning in July last he was
awakened from his slumber to see a man
who was anxious to have a talk with the
proprietor. Atcherton seriously ob
jected to breaking up his nap, but be
lieving that the anxious party meant
important business, he got up to re
ceive him. The reader can fathom the
old gentleman's disgust when he dis
covered that his visitor was a lightning
rod agent. There was a disposition to
kick the intruder into the lake and go
back to bed, but as that waa scarcely
within tho limits of hospitality, to say
nothing of the requirements of the law,
the landlord smothered his wrath and
patiently submitted to the infliction.
The agent Was a smooth-faced and
smooth-talking man. He said he had
been most favorably impressed with the
appearance of the place, which was
really imposing, and he was confident
that in two years or less the host would
bo doing what he felt justified in calling
a "smashing business."
"But I see you havon't got any rods
on your palace. How's that?"
The old man said he did not think ho

them more than this does," said the

by the agent. Both looked up at the

asktd the old gentleman, after a pause.
"I don't think anything about "it, my
good sir, I know it. Common sense
teaches me that a building situated like
this is in danger. If I owned it, and a
man should come along with this kind
of a rod I would slip it on quicker'n

I d believe I was committing architect

"You don't think it is safe then to go

you like a path of gold. Suddenly there
comes a storm, the lightnings play, the
thunders roll suddenly, in a twink

ble property is swallowed up."
The old gentleman was visibly af
fected. The agent s eyes were moist and his
"What do you say?" he asked after a
"I don't know," replied Atcherton, as
a man deliberating. "You think the
barn is in danger, too?"
"Certainly. Nothing can save either
of them, but the rods. If they were my
buildings I wouldn't begin to think of
taking the risk."
"I 'spose," said Atcherton, interroga
tively, "that it would be best to have a
full number of rods on the house? The
more rods the safer."
"Oh, yes. It don't pay to do this
thing in a half-way manner."
"Well, now, what would it cost to
put rods all over the house?"
. The agent's eyes glistened.
"Let me see." He took out a memo
randum book, figured a moment, and
then said: "I can put a tip at each cor
ner, on every chimney, and one on top
the flag staff, for $325, and you will have
a job that Julius Ciesar might be proud

his book and rubbing his hands.
"All right, I'll have it done. Just
cover the house. Put on a rod where
ever you think it is needed. But I won't
have any on the barn."
"Yes sir," said the agent, so full of
joy he could hardly see the way to his

ton. "Do it right away," briskly responded
"All right," said the old gentleman.

Sonnd Reasons for Faith.
The American people are shrewd and
observant. They are not often deceived by sham
preteusioua ; but when they are, they soon dis
cover their error. If Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters had been a sham, they would long since
have discarded it ; but finding: that there was not
a claim put forth in its behalf that its curative
properties did not justify, they immediately
pave it the preference to every article of its class.
Time has only served to strengthen their faith,
and has increased its popularity to an extent al
most beyond parallel, even, in this age of suc
cessful proprietary medicines. It ranks fore
most among the standard preparations of the
day, and is endorsed by the medical fraternity
and the newspaper press. It overcomes and
prevents fever and ague and other malarial dis
orders with wondrous certainty, tones the sys
tem, banishes dyspepsia, remedies constipation
and liver complaint, relieves gout, rheumatism,
and affections of the bladder and kidneys. .

EVERY W0RKIN6HAN READ THIS.
THE "CALL" AMKTHE W0RKING&1EN.
At si meeting of the Workingmau's Party lielJ December 2d, the following
resolutions were adopted :
Whereas' The -workingmen,. as citizens of California and of the United
States, possess the inalienable right of free speech in public meeting assembled,
for the purpose of setting forth and endeavoring to obtain a redress of the griev
ances which threaten to overwhelm them ; andwliereas, the movement inaugu
rated by them is for the welfare of the general public, and particularly to pre
vent the white laboring man and mechanic and small farmer from being displa
ced by Chinese coolies under the control of monopolists ; and. whereas, the work
ingmen and their trusted leaders have been vilified, misrepresented and threat
ened by the newspapers which advocate the'claims and defend the interests of
the corporations and monopolists, as is evidenced by the extracts from the MORN
ING CALL, here given :
" The San Francisco Division of tho National Labor Party of California, an
organization quite apart from the Kearney cut-throat crowd, have published a
plat form and declaration of principles.' Call, November ?,.
li When Ihieves and murderers combine together for the takiug of life and
unlawfully appropriating other people's property, it becomes a necessity for com -muuities
to organize for self-protection." CVf, November V.
And, whereas, the workingmen have never contemplated any other inuusof
redressing their grievances than proper and lawful ones, we hereby desire to de
nounce their libelers and slanderers as the wort enemies of the labor tau.se-;
therefoie, be it
Jiesolred, That the MORNING CALL of San Francisco, which was built up
by the patronage of workingmen and advocated the interest of labor while con
trolled by journeymen printers, its former owners, has under its recent proprie
torship become the organ and defender of corporations and monopolists; and is
now UNWORTHY THE SUPPORT OF ANY LABORER OR MECHANIC
who is opposed to the' supplanting of white labor by Chinese Slaves.
Resolved, That from this time henceforth we, the workingmen of this city,
will bv every means in our power rebuke. the TRAITOROUS CALL, which Las
en.b-iivored to sell us out to our enemies, and that we will WITHDRAW onr
SUBSCRIPTIONS and ADVERTISING PATRONAGE.
Jiesolred, That we call upon all labor organizations throughout the State to
follow our example and administer such a lesson to the journalistic hypocrite as
will prevent a repetition of the treason.
