"Who should pay it? Is it right that
the town should reap all the lenefit and
bear none of the burden? Is it right
that those who assumed the danger
should also be made to shoulder the re
sponsibility? As it is not right to allow the vigilance
committee to bear all the burden neither
is it right to allow thera to have all the
honor. Hundreds of citizens like myself
who were not of tho committee would
willingly be of it if thev were asked.
True, $1,000 is a mere t rifle, but though
small, is it right to allow a few to pay it?
It is said that when the owners of the
cotton bales that defended Now Orleans
got a judgment in the courts against
Gen. Jackson, in a few hours afterward
the citizens clubbed togetherand paid the
fine. And are not those brave men whp
have been fined for defending us, worthy
of like consideration? There is one at
least who thinks so. and who, if a meet
ing of citizens is called for the purpose
of showing such consideration ana re
spect will esteem it a privilege to be pres
ent among the rank and file and take
part in such meeting. Is not such action
necessary to inspire the timid and re
strain the impulsive, should -such a crisis
over again arise in our history when a
vigilance committee would become jui
imperative neccessity to restrain law
breakers and assist the officer? of (he law

A Famous Sea Captain.
Captain James S. Dillingham of tho
mail ship Finance of the Brazilian line,
who died recently, just aftt-r the vessel
left quarantine, was widely known dur
ing the war. Early in 1815. lie was in
command of the clipper ship Snow Squull
running between San Francisco, Hono
lulu and Now York. "While rounding
Cape of Good Hope the rebel privateer
Tuscaloosa was sighted and hailed. Be
ing ordered to surrender, the Show Squall
spread sails and fled. The chase was
kept up all day, the Snow Squall finally
escaping under cover of night. In a sub
sequent trip the Smnr Squall was
wrecked, and Captain Dillingham trans
ferred his crew to the brig Mandarton,
which was afterward captured by the
rebel ship Florida. Here tho captain
was a prisoner for ten days. Before the
war he commanded only merchant ships,
and received a gold watch from the un
derwriters of Boston for saving the brig
Nabob when dismasted by a cyclone in
the Southern seas. Since 18G8 he has
commanded the merchant ships Vigilant
and Fleetford of Boston. Last January
he took command of the Finance. In it
ho made three trips between Rio Janeiro
and New York, on the last bringing tho
richest cargo ever brought from that port
to New York.

I.oti of the Victoria.
Captain- Hollas, of the Columbia,
brought down word yesterday afternoon
that the Pacific Coast Steamship Co.'s
steamer Victoria had gone ashore off
Cape Blanco on the Oregon coast. The
supposition was that she had gone ashore
in a fog, but no particulars had been
received. The crew were all saved and
the vessel was with difficulty beached at
Port Orford, a few miles below. At tho
time tho oiheers left her the water was
rising in the hold at the rate of a foot an
hour. The iclona had made several
trips to this city from San Francisco,
mostly at times of great rush of freights.
When lost shb was carrying a load of coal
from tho bound to ban lraucisco. felie

Fashions ix weddings. There are
fashions in weddings as in dress. The
peculiarity of tho new style lies in the ab
sence of bridesmaids, tho presence of a
best man, and the substitution of ushers
for groomsmen. Tho best man follows
the groom from tho vestrv and holds the
groom's hat during tho ceremony. An
innovation of weddings is to strew the
iaiuuie His jo oi iuo cnurcxi wnu nuiuran
leaves. This picturesque feature was in
troduced at a recent wedding, tho rust
ling leaves accompanying tho soft wed
ding music as the bridal party approached
tho altar. But tho niost startling novelty
was recently tried at a wedding in Sing
Sing. As arrival to tho groom's best man
tne bride had a "best girl." The "best
girl" solves the problem what to do with
the best man after the ceremonv. as he
has tho best girl to escort down the aisle,

Ship In Dlxtress.
Captain IugalIs,of the ship SHlhtrland-
shire, just arrived from Hull, reports that
'September 12, 13S3, longitude 04 degrees
and 20 minutes west, and latitude Al de
grees and twenty minutes south, about
noon, observed a vessel to windward, ap
parently flying his ensign. JTho ship
proved to be tho American ship Iry, Cap
tain Morse, 2X days out from Philadel
phia for this port." She had in a gale mot
with damage and subsequently put into
New York for repairs, and sailed again.
The last heard from her sho was at Port
Stanley again repairing. As soon as wo
made out his ensign.we backed our yards
and hove to. Made out later from his sig
nals that his rudder was gone. Soon
after he run up, 'I will go to leeward and
heave to. Pick my people up, as I must
abandon the ship.' But he made no ap-
Kearance to launch a boat, or clear a
oat. He had four good lioats on deck.
The ship was steering very well and the
rudder was in its place, although, to all
appearances, his rudder-head was gone.
He was steering with the tiller on the
after part of the rudder, and a spar across
the stern of tho ship. He ran up
signals for us to come to lee
ward of Slaten Island, which I re
fused to do. us there were thick snow
squalls, and it was coming on dark, while
there was no danger in leaving the ship
with the boats. Would have sent my boats
if he had none. Both my officers and crew
were agreeable to go, but to all appear
ances there was no desire on the part of
tho ivy s men to leave that vessel, as
they clewed up and furled all sail, with
the exception of the main lower topsail,
which was kept set. Tho ship was al
lowed to roll and tumble m tho trough of
tho sea, which made it impossible for a
boat to leave the ship. Was rather sur-
frised at his manoeuvres, as he was not
ike a man wanting to leave his ship. Bo
fore it came on dark wo put our helm up
and ran to leeward of him, and passing
him about a ship's length, we had made
all preparations for receiving them on
board. ve lound when close to him no
lashings of the boats, or any prepara
tions made. I asked if his ship was leak
ing, and he replied 'no.' At o'clock it
was dark, with thick snow and squalls.
and we lost sight of him. We filled our
yards and proceeded on our c jurse. as ho
was in the track of homeward bound
ships several passing us" that night and
in the morning. Both the officers and
myself knew that tho ship was not leak
ing aim in no immeuiaio danger, as tue
ship was steeriuc verv well and had cv-
ervtumg m good order, and the ralklaud
Islands under his lee. After it got dark
no never suowed a light or made any sig
nals." S. F. Bulletin.
