The e|i|9 in|i|dental toljtbia 8ta^| of thi|]^ h^ve gd||$unately<^|i0eii^| Th'e Government must 'break the blockade by making change plenty, and the. sootier it acts the less the exertion that will be needed. In Washington City, to acoommpdate those \?ho were in actual want of change inV their husiness,.- the Treasury Depaiftment'jlast'week issued reasonable amounts of fractional currency in exchange for bills. This attempt to relieve a public necessity was defeated by the I nconsiderate smartness of certain individuals who, getting.fractionai currency from one telLer"'immediately psesented it to theother for redemption in silver, when this process was discovered the Treasury wus-oompclled to cease afi'ord-ing this accomm'bdation. Commenting on the prospective corner on small change, the New York Times says : .'.'It is clear that a blunder has been made in the business of getting the silver change into circulatiou, but how serious a one we cannot yet tell. To undertake to fix the responsibility would be idle, but it seems to us if the Director bf the Mint had attended to the difBculties necessarily incidental to shifting from paper change ta silver chauge, instead of prematurely concentrating his attention on a great silver dollar, he might have made some valuable suggestiuns tcpersons in authority at Washington. -At all events there is a hitch in the programme, and there is danger of no cod of trouble, unless something is done without delay to clear a channel for the silver to flow in, At first sight the difficulty appears tu this : the total of the silver change and outstanding fractional currency cannot, under the law us itstanda, exceed the amount of fractional currency outstanding at the date the issue of silver coin odmmenoed. But a constantly incrcaing amount of silver change is hoarded,, and fractional cuiTeticy is also hoarded, in order to obtain silver by moans of it, the consequence being that both silver and fractional currency are deducted from an aggregate which previously was only su�Bcient for the necessities of the public." aOXSi XO LAW Slate Regitttr. Courts are costly luxuries. They are kept ill business'by one of the worst traits of our-nature. It is man's inhumanity to man, it is the same spirit, in a more private way, which has drenched the; world in; blodd since the days of Cain. It is an'urih'oly strii'e between-neighbors, which has its counterpart in the deadly carnage between neighboring nations. It is to ; a large degree j unreasonable and; unprofitable, A large amount of the business in court grows out of trifling disagreements among neighbors, which could be ami-Ciibly settled in a way honorable to both parties, if the IjBast concession and.for-bearahce was ekei'cised by the' parties. Nine-tenths of all the suits in court tire the results of unyielding determination to have their own way. . Ignoi-anoe of law, pride of opinion, brutal passions, and an overbearing spirit, are t lo fruitful causes of nearly all law suits among farmers. It, is not often that it is the real sum or object in question, that is the cause of the suit, but au old grudge -an.unsatisfied ,ha.tred;^a malicious appeiit^^t^ 'liiii^^r'aBS' a' riieighbor.- But i n nearly all cases the prosecutor is greatly damaged,''if not tlie' worst of the two. A farmer who goes to law with his neighbor for a trivial.consideration loses the respect and confidence of his neighbors-mars his own peace, and disturbs his whole neighborhood by dragging witnesses to court at bu�y seasons, and involves himself in heavy costs. TEH OOUSTOOE LOSE. . Philadelphia BuUelin. You may have noticed in.the papers that Beluchius Jamsuttacheheebhoy was mortally wounded the other day.,.by the Nawabof Dada,in Ahmeddnugger. And thus another one of earth's great and noble ones passes away. I knew him well; I refer to Beluchius Jamsuttacheheebhoy, of course. He was in some respects a very remarkable maa, even for a hindoo. I remember that in his earlier years his mind assumed somewhat of a devoti'onal cast; and in the first impulse of his religious fervor he undertook to give his feelings expression by standing upon one leg for 67 years. After he had held that other leg in the air for about 32 months, however, his views underwent a change, and he concluded to put it down. It seems but yes terday that he came to me and said that after turning the matter over in his mind it struck him as somewhat absurd for a man to hope to secure eternal felicity by holding up his toes.and that he was now convinced that if he hoped to get into the path of duty he should have to engage in the work of pitching babies to the sacred crocodiles. I never knew of any one to fire his whole soul" to a work as Beluchius did to this. To see that saintly Hindoo take a baby and chuck it at a hungry crocodile WHS to have your respect for mankind increased. He was an unusually conscientious man, and he never caused the animals any unnecessary annoyance. When one of them Would prop its jaw? open Beluchius would take any odd twins that he had in his collection and heave them into the animal's mouth with a precision that was little less thab marvelous. Ho acquired dexterity by practicing with a rag baby on a stuffed alligator, and it was a comfort to see the good man going through his exercises with that scrupulous fidelity which always distinguished him. But he wearied of it at last. He told me that his soul craved something which would develop his higher powers, and so he joined the Thugs. Here the same lofty devotion of duty characterized his conduct. He had a way of ganoting a man which brought all the instincts of his nature into play, and his friends never could sufficiently admire the artistic manner in which he disposed of the various members of his family. It was not so_ much that he brained both his parent's with a single fling of the boomerang, although that was spoken of at the tinio as something a little above the average, and it was not that he choked off his grandmother by slipping the clothes-line over her head and tightening it by fixing his grandfather to the other end and dropping him out of the window. But when he pinned bis aunt to the cellar door with the toasting fork and drove the cook through the roof by putting blasting nowder in the stove, people said that the man's services were untitled to some kind of recognition over and above what he deserved for putting his little bruthers and sisters in the Well and then dropping grimlstoncs on them. There was something about the man that warmed the heart toward him. After he resigned from the Thugs, he he found relief from his yearning after truth by exercising upon the sacred swing. Often have I seen him run the iron hook through the small of hi!) back, or the calf of his leg, and go humming �round and round, scolding at the man at the crank for turhihg so slow ; and then he would comis dbwii and run the carj)f Juggernaut oyer the ribs of 300 to 4^0 common people and scrunch them up, and: go humiB feeling all tho tim^ that he hadn't done anything near his duty and wasn't half good enough to associate with thoroughly moral people. Butit is all'Over now. The crocodiles, may go hungry now, as far as he is con corned. Who will go prowling around picking up^ stray babies, for them now. Who will butcher'superfluous people in the. hearty fashion ho used to be so fond of?l Who will make the slip-.noosus of clothes-lines and suspend old people out of the windows, and shoot unnecessary cooks out through the shingles and up toward the stars ? Nobody about Ahmeddnugger, any way. � One town can't very well grow more than one such man as he. And now that his simple, and modest, andlunpretending life is ended, I offer him this little testimonial of ray esteem, and sigh to_think what a man he would Ijave been to our little community, where the Coroner might have followed him up and held about fifteen inquests a day, and where he would have given the undertaking business an impulse that would have put it right upon its feet, and enkbled some of ua to get up corners in coflius. San FnANOisoo, May 2.-In refer-jence to Erroneous statements concerning iho gold and silver .products of the Comstock Lode, in many of which the bullion product of the State of Nevada has been crdited to the Pom.stock, the 'i?�fl:e ) time he and his sister-in-law were chanting hymns over the pale face of the innocent babe, its mother and a man whose name I could not learn were down in the brush near the house shrieking wildly and praying to God. The Rev. Mr. Lynch and his sister-in-law were taken into custody and brought to this plac.o and lodged in our County Jail. I repaired to the jail this morning and had a long interview with the prisoners, especially the young woman, bhe would converse freely on all subjects except the murder of the child. She was born in Arkansas; her name is Celia Lavina Treace. She is now 20 years old, and is really a handsome woman. At 17 she became the mother of a girl child, now living with one of her sisters iu this county, and some two months since she added another illegitimate to her family. She says that a distinguished minister of their church at Neosho County, Kan. made a slight departure from the recognized dogmas of the true church by add ing free love to the original doctrine. That she was misled by him ; that said divine is the father of her boy babe,now 2 months old. The child is in jail with her. So far she refuses to eat. She says Hhe will not eat for forty days and nights I told her the child would starve. She replied that the Savior of the world was in the Mount that long and lived afterwards. The prevailing opinion here is that the prisoners are crazy, and their insanity is confined to religious hallucination. Mr. Lynch aeeins to be familiar wsth the Old Testament, and insists that he was fulfilling the requirements of Sci'ipture when he killed his little girl. It is an offering to God for sin. lie imagities himself Abraham, and feels that hp must prove his faith in God by sacrificing his child. THE OHINESS ELEPHANT. Within ninety days from the ad of Atarcli last, and within one hundred niilesi of New York city, on u track not yet se-lectud, there is to be a mustang race iigiiiaat time ot three hundred miles, to be performed within fifteen hours. Relays (if mustangs, not more than thirty in uum ber, are to be used, and the whole distance to be made is to bo ridden by one man. The feat is to beperformcd with all the ad juncts of Culifurnia saddles, Mexican spurs Spanish bits, free reiu. The wagera are $25,000 against $IS,000. The horses, purcbasud in Visalln, Cat., arrived at Jersey City on the 18th ult., and aru on their owner's farm iu New Jersey bjBing prepared for the race. TUey are the ordinarv rnugli coated, sliaggy-maoed California mustangs, wild as the north wind, vicious as any Jezebel, and hardy as the summits of the Sieriiis. Under the conditions ot the wager thoy aru to be grass fed up to the day of the race, lud to be taken without regard to choice, except, of course, a regard for. physical soundness, from the Yisalia stock yards. These terma have been complied with to the letter. Their riiier is a Mexican, famous in the tar West as a horseman, one of the most during riders that ever carried the mails into Southern Califoruia. ..In addition to birajelf are three other dorse-men. who aru prepared to mount should anything'happen tn him. There aie six cxcra horses, iu the event of any accident to one, and each of the jockeys has bis own persoual accoiitremeuts.     ..... The priocipiils in the wag^r are prompted by a firm belief in the merits of thor ougUbreds and Califoinia native stock, respectively, one being a reiiideut New Yorker and the other an old Caliturniu, one of the ploooers of '49. The wager hud iCsorii{in in a cunvcrauiion between them iu which the feats ot N. U. Mowery,. the champion relay rider of the West, were spoken of,anil the New Yorker based hiii wager on thu belief that, although the muiitangs might be able tu do all that was said of theui on the Pacific slope, tbey could nut endure the chUiige ot clim.ite food, and water, inseparably from a visit here. Ncverchclusa tliey have -siKiurod it, liaving made a twenty six day journey I'loin Yisalia to Jersey City, over th� plains making ouu deiid run of .fllty two lio'urs betwcau Ogde'n and Larmie, anil rusting in corrals filled with snow, and tliey are iu such prime condition that their owner is willing to put them on the truck within t�ei)ty-(bur hours. The oddfi in the wiigcr have been given to the Calilornian in considurution of tiie. heavy expenses of purchase and transfer, These have amounted to moro than $8,. 000. SanFiiancisco, May 3. The "South-San Francisco anti Coolie Club and Young Men's Universal Reform Society" held a meeting last night, passed rules indorsing the destruction of the Chinese quarter in Antioch, and advocating a .similar course in this city,unless the Federal Governmunt should take immediate steps to abate the evil. The speeches were highly incendiary. Letters wore read from a Society in the interior seeking co-operation. The Ser-geaiit-at-Arms of the "Reform" Club had received a telegram from New York saying that 2*600 stand of arras'could be delivered hero at ten days notice. While such talk and action were reprobated by the, great mass of thinking people in this city, there can be ho doubt that it meets the approval of a large and numerous class in the community, and that, in the event of no action being taken in the matter by the General Government, there is grave reason to fear serious disturbauces at no distant day. San Francisco, May 3. The Senate comuiiasion to investigate the Chinese question is now sitting m Sacramento. Yesterday C. P. O'Neil, policcraun, testified to having beun witness to a sale of a Chinese woman for 8450. The woman soon after suicided, not likingthe man to whom she was sold. He also stated that he had been imforined by the Chinese that they attended the mis.sion schools solely ,to learh English, and laughed at the idea of becoming Christians. Ah Dan, Chinese interpreter, testified that two Chinese interpreters had been killed i'l S&criimerito' for their services in court, procuring'convictions, and that a reward was outstanding for his life. Ho had seen similar-notices post?d in San Franeisco. Such notices contain an agreement.to employ council to defend the murderer if .arrested,. and recompense hib if iuiprisoned; anS send money to his relatives in China if'executed.' His testimony concerning the Chinese companies was similar to that heretofore published. Charles T. Jones, District Attorney of Sacramento, gave his experience as to how the Chinese compromise . felonies, abduct .females, etc., his teslimoiiy being in the main a recapitulation of similar evidence given before the Commission when sitting in San Francisco. The Legislature of Massachusetts passed a bill legalizing the'imarriageiof Mr. Parton" to his step-daughter, and everything would be lovely for the happy pair only Gov, Rics has vetoed it. .Parton and his illegal wife must uow get out of Massachusetts, ijnd take up their reaid^)(.ce in^spa^Oi^tajtehyH^rc the law is not so' .squeamish, and where "Those whom God hath joined together" nOjRifte"cnn put asunder." BeligeoaB Intolennoe In Spain. It is an exciting di.scu.isiou that is pow going on in thu Spiitiisli Cortes at Madrid over the adoption of the eleventh artiulu of the now Constitution. That article, ns sustained by the present Qoverument, is in these words: "The Roman Citholic religion is the religion of, and shall be exclusivelv niain-tiiined by, tlio State; freedom of religious belief sluiU be lawful within the limits of Christian molality; but no manifestations other tlian those uf the Catholic Church " This article i.i considered too "liberal" by the Ultraiiiontauu party in the Cortes, which introduced an unti-toleration amend ment, to it last week. The amendment was rejected after .three days diEcussion; but still tliu Ultniinoutuiies, who are sua tajned by the Spaniah biernruby and by the Viiliean, hope to secure the uiodiQcu-tion of tlie cfeventli articlebefnre its passage through the Cortes. A lively debute on tlie^princi pics of the aitielo has been carried on ill Madrid for some months. The probabilities arc that the Government, which has a large majority iu the Cortea will carry through tlie art �1bs as originally drawn up, notwithstanding the d^m-oustrations iiguiust it. -The latest London .gossip is about John Brown the gillie, and being about Jotin Brown the gillie, is also about the Queen, of course. The story runs thus: Prince Christian who is a ranger of Windsor forest, pr(i|)0�ed to giye a stjdotiog party to his own particular trionds. He showed the names to the queen, as ii customary, and they were approved, with the hope thit Mr, iirowri should bo one of the number. Prince Christian loyally an-seuted, hut when the shooting party cumo off tho Prince and Mr Brown were ^tbu; ones who hunted, ills higlincBS had withheld all the other invitations, declined to place the gillie on the level of J�s;owio Irieods. The queen is said to be deeply cut by tliia blight.a8 Prince Cliriati.iu,,,i8 the only one ot her royal  rpHtives ifpr whom she has hitherto held u high re-, giird. D\ii, no one who, looks iLtothv case can fail to ; syinputliize with the Prince. If John Brown is a servant, what right hud the qiieun to coiuiiiaud him to be included on an equal fixithig, among u number of iiobleiucu and genlloineu invited to a dliooting jiarty by aprio^u? i 4ud if he ia not a scrvunt, what prupriety is there iu the queen's keeping hiru'tit her side wherever she goes ? 'Siippbsihg him tube Ue^vfilet, there (is no ^inpcopriety iu his wait'.ng upon her; but if he is a pii-vute gentltsmau it is certainly scandalous. -It is stated that tlie Congregatipn, of Rites at Home has repotted adversely to tbe cannnizatiiin of Joan ot Arc- A work answering ill the negiitive.tho question, "Is Future Punlshineot Etoroaif' will be published early iiiliiBy by Lock wood, Brooks * Co.
