'flw Extra Session n Failure.
Tho Democratic majority in con
gress forced upon tljo president tlic
necessity 65 calling tlio present ex
tra session Ly refusing to pass the
usual appropriation lulls nt the Into
icgulnr scssio)), with the avowed
purpose of iordng the president to
npprovo tho rep?al of the law relat
ing to tho appointment of election
commissioners in cities of over 20,
000 inhabitants. Thev accordinclv
incorporated the legislation thoy do-
sircu into uio army 'ippruiiritiuon
bill, and passed and sent it to the
president for approval. Tho presi
dent returned tho bill with his ob
jection and his reasons were so
conclusive and so generally approv
ed that it has seriously shaken the
faith of tho Democracy in tho high
handed measures which they have
undertaken. It was first announced
that they would insist on tho stand
thoy Jiad taken and in caso tho
president would not approve tho
appropriation bill with the "rider"
which 'it carried, no money should
bo' appropriated for tho expenses
of tho army. But when Alexander
H. Stevens boldly denounced
such a course as "revolutionary ,''
when ho told them such a course
would 'bo making war upon tho
clearly defined constitutional power"
of tho executive, and gave them to
understand if they persisted in that
position thev would forfeit the sup-
- post and encounter tho opposition of
himself and tho better class of the
Democracy, they reluctantlv aband
oned tho course before marked out,
and hftvo now decided to enact sim
ply a bill to prevent interference by
tho militarv at elections. Of course
there is nothing in the history of
tho country which, suggests the pos
sibility of such an occurrence. No
military interference at elections
was over attempted or contemplated
by tho Republican party, and the
bill now pending on that subject,
but re-enacts a law already in force.
The Republican party has no objec
tion to such a law. Tho president,
as is already announced, will ap-'
prove this bill, and the prolonged
extra session of congress calledfor,
forced upon the country for partisan
ends, will close, without accomplish
ing anything either for tho country
or the party who thought to make
it the means of building up their
.hopes and prospects of success in
tho presidential campaign oi 1SS0.
The session is a most complete and
very expressive failure, and one that
annot but do the party which
caused it. much harm. It has de
veloped a -willingness on their part
to make a'sacrifaco of tho interests
of the country to partizaivends, and
is calculated to drive tho thinking

Contrary to general expectation the
election for the ratification of the now
constitution in California, which oc
curred on the 7th, resulted in a ma
jority of 20,000 invor of its adoption.
The instrument contains some good
and wholesome provisions, calculated
to correct existing evils, but in the
raain it cannot but bo regarded as ob
jectionable and bad. It met with the
eamest opposition of nearly all class
es of business men except the fanners,
but the vote of the agricultural class,
vwitb thp Kearney element in the cit-
Vfes, carried the day.
The effect of the adoption of this
constitution it is difficult to predict,
it is quite certain however, that it will
or a time depress business, and retard
tho investment of capital. It i& prob
ablo also that many persons of means,
whose capital has been mainly invest
ed in those branches of business most
affected by tho new order of things,
will leave tho state and seek invest
ment elsewhere. In that caso Ore
gon, Washington territory and Arizo
na will be tho points -which will de
rive tho benefit? We believe the reg
ular election of stato officers under
the new constitution will tako place
jiext Septembor, and should tho rad
ical "labor" element bo unsuccessful
there, men of-nleans and of business
will consider California the best stato
in the Union to emigrate from. Not
withstanding good crops and gcnoral
prosperity, tho coming summer will,
urobably, bo tho dullest which has

An Insaae Boy Murdered bjr nls Room
mate hi the Napa Asylum.
About one week ago, a young man
nnmed Alfred Burton, was taken to
I the Napa Insane Asylum from Sacra
mento, where he had been cmpioyeu
in business for over a year. On Mon
day ho was put in a, room;.with a man
named Hopper, who bad been an in
mate of the asylum for nine months,
and had never shown anv disposition
to be quarrelsome. He made no ob
jections to haing Burt n with hinij
They both went to bcil quiotly anb
were found asleep at 9 o'clock by the
night watchman. He found them
asleep at 10 o'clock, but on the third
visit, at 3:13 a. m.,yosterday, ho found
Burton asleep and Hopper awake.
The latter simply said that the boy
bad been up and soiled tho floor, but
he exhibited no special feeling in the
matter. The watchman continued
his rounds, and at 4 o'clock looked in
to tho room and found Hopper astride
of Burton, grasping him by tho throat,
and In&was dead. Ho said that the
boy got up and attacked him, but this

A London.dispatch of the 7th says
that on the Cth instant the Prince of
Wals nrescnted a petition in the
House of Lords signed by 3,238 Nor
folk farmers in favor of the bill legal
izing marriage witb a dcceaEedwifc's
sister. The prince said that he be
lieved the measure would be of great
advantage to tho community at large
and he would support it. Lord Hou
ton (liberal) moved the second read
ing of the bill. The government, re
presented by Lord Cranerook, strong
ly opposed it and the second reading
was Ueleatert by a vote ot 1U1 to bi.
The Prince of Yalcs, Duko of Edin
burg and Bishop of Kipon, voted with
the minority and fourteen of the bish
ops with the majority.
In tho house of commons, a declar
ator' resolution was introduced by
Farrar Herschel (liberal) in faver of
abolishing tho action for breachf
promise of marriage, except in cases
wheie actual pecuniary loss has been
incurred by reason of promise, was car
ried by a vote of 10-1 yeas to 49 nays.
The Willamette Farmer says : Sher

A dispatch of tho 8th, from Wilks

explosion of gas in Stanton shaft in
Lehigh and Wilkesbarro Coal 3Iino,
severely burned Martin Kerrigan.
At midnight while tho men were
brushing out the accumulation of gas
in the lower vein, it came in contact
with a "blower," causing a terrific

Making Ungllsh Mutton.
A writer in an eastern agricultural
paper says : Dr. Stuart, a Scotch gen
tleman, really thought ho was eating
Euglbh mutton, while dining with us
tho other day. When I told the
gentleman tho roast mutton was "to
the manor born' be would seaieely
boliovo it, as tho llavor was so excel
lent. Tho mutton was essentially
English, as.it was fatted on turnips.
It was carefully buteheroib.aoi that
there should bo no Avool tauu to it,
which is always tho caso when the
wool touches the flesh, or when the
butcher handles tho meat without
washing his hand" after handjing the
pelt. We tried tho experiment this
winter of fattening a few sllcop on
turnips for family use, and Wo are
much gratified with our success. 'En
glish mutton, chl that is going ft) tho
top shelf on tho start. Our pen of
sheep wero old ewes, all but one, a
yearling wether. Wo began with
about four quarts each of turnips
sliced in tho machine, and in a week
increased tho quantity to'Ss many as
they would cat, which was about a
peck each. A quart of buckwheat
bran for the first few weeks was given
with tho turnips each day, and thoy
had beside, all tho clover hay they
wanted. Thoy got no water. They
were small sheep a cross of Merinos
and Southdown. They began to
gain rapidly from thestart, and never
missed a feed, showing thafthey wore
in perfect health all of the "time, for
when a sheep is sick it will not cat.
Larger sheep would have eaten more
turnips, and would have done equally
as well. The rule should be, after tho
first week, to give them all the turn
ips they will eat. There is no danger
of sheep eating too many turnips in
winter if tho stable is warm.
Liability of Hotel Keepers.
in a recent case llannoc-k s
Band tho supreme court df New
York considered tho liability of hotel
keepers for property stolen from tho
rooms of thos'O who occupy them',
whether as-guests orboardcrs. ,
In November, 73Gen. Hannock
applied to the proprietors of tho St.
Cloud Hotcl'in New York city, for
rooms for himself and family, with
meals either to be served in tho res
taurant or in their rooms. A certain
price per month was agreed upon and
the arrangement was to continue un
til the following Hiiumer, unless the
general should be ordered away. In
the absence of the family, one even
ing in March, 1S74, tho"Toonis wore
entered by a thief, and valuables to
the amount of $400, stolon. Suit was
brought against the proprietors of
tho hotel, resulting in favor oftbo
plaintiff. In affirming the judgment
the supreme court said :
"We cannot adopt the theory, that
ascertaining and fixing the price that
was to be paid for tho accommodation.
and spccifyiiyjLi?TH1otj-rbV! duration
of tho stay""at tho hotel, necessarily
had tho effect to deprive tho plaintiff
of the character of a guest. The
effect of such a theory reduced to
practice would be to deprive the
visitor at a hotel of tho character
of guest, if ho took tho precaution
p ascertain in advance the price
which would be charged for his ontcr-v
Tho law which renders tho keeper
of a hotel liable lor the baggago ot a
guest which is stolen from tho room
assigned lum, and which remains in
the care and supervision of tho land
lord and the servants whom ho selects
is salutary, and should not bo render
ed substantially inoperative by adopt
ing technical distinctions which rest
upon ingenious speculation rather
'than sound reason.
