CEMETERY REPORT - P.L. EDWARDS, referee in the case of the People of the State of California upon the relation of R.P. JACOBS vs. D. MURRAY, reported to-day to the District Court in favor of plaintiff and directs "that judgement herein be entered up in said Court according to the prayer of said complaint, to wit: That the said defendant be excluded from the office of Superintendent of the City Cemetery of the city of Sacramento, in the State of California, and from the exercise of the powers and duties thereof, and from the receiving of the fees, emoluments and profits thereof, and that the relator be placed in and invested with the said office, powers and duties and the receipt of the said fees, emoluments and profits; and further, that the plaintiffs recover their costs herein laid out, expended and taxed and that the executing issue therefor." It is understood that the District Judge will not interfere with the report of the referee.


A SEQUEL - When the officers discovered the fire yesterday morning, and were satisfied that an incendiary had been at work, two or three went through the alley to ______ street, when they saw the gas-light put out in a certain building, and two young men shortly afterward came out. The officers secreted themselves in an old outhouse to watch further proceedings, but were observed by one of the two men referred to, who commenced uttering a string of most abusive language. He dared one of the officers to fight, which the policeman, of course declined doing ,till the scapegrace went so far to put his fist in McINTOSH's face. The officer then took off his coat, and gave the rowdy a dressing which he will no doubt long remember. We forbear giving the names of these fellows, hoping the company to which they belong will see that it is their interest to get rid of such nuisances.


DEADLY WEAPONS - In the Police Court, this morning, the difficulty which took place last Saturday evening, between Domingo NAREZ and Jose VEGA, was investigated. The examination of Domingo NAREZ was first taken up, when VEGA swore that, meeting Narez on the street, the latter used very bad language toward him and made a pass at him with a knife about a foot long. A witness testified that he, soon after the shooting, assisted Vega to find a knife, which he (Vega) said he had lost. A woman who lives with Domingo, stated that she and defendant came out of the house together and that, without a word passing between the parties, Vega fired three shots at Domingo, who had no weapon about him. Judgement was reserved till examination be heard in the other case, which was postponed till to-morrow.


ANNUAL - To- morrow will be St. Valentines' Day, and that, too, coming in Leap Year, a grand fluttering among young hearts follows as a matter of course. What deep consideration will it require to decide what colors will suit best the taste of the recipients, or what words of poetry will be most effectual in thawing the icy heart of a loved but coquettish fair one! We are unable to say to what extent the young ladies of Sacramento will exercise their Leap Year prerogative - but perhaps may be able to speak more advisedly on the subject, which deeply affects us ,by Wednesday morning. "Dimmed spire spar."


THE TEST IN SACRAMENTO - The Lecompton Democratic County Committee met on Saturday, and called a primary election for the 18th inst., and a convention for the 23d, and also adopted the following text; "Resolved, That the judges of the primary election are hereby instructed not to allow any one to vote who voted against Scott or Burch on the State Ticket, or Taylor, our candidate for Sheriff, or Brown, our candidate for County Clerk, at the last election." That will exclude the Anti-Lecomptonites, pretty well, and keep the organization in this county in the hands of the Administration men. Well, that is only fair - "to the victors belong the spoils."


ST. PATRICK - A ball, the proceeds to aid in the erection of an Orphanage and School-house in the city, will be given at Agricultural Hall on Friday evening, Match 16th (St. Patrick's Eve). The price of tickets, including carriages, is put at five dollars.


FRUSTRATED - An attempt to fire a Chinese wash-house on the south side of K street, between Fourth and Fifth streets, was fortunately frustrated at an early hour yesterday morning, by officers Burke, Cody and McIntosh.


FELTER, NO. 94 K street, corner of Fourth, in the building, has just opened a fine dairy of new Eastern butter, (vic Isthmus,) and also a fine lot of California hams, selected expressly for family use. Try them, as his motto is small profits and quick sales.





Col. A.J. BUTLER; one of the executors of BRODERICK's Will, returned from Washington in the last steamer, and brought a copy of that document with him. Here it is, as published in the Telegram:


"In the Name of God, Amen: I, David C. BRODERICK, of the city of San Francisco, in the State of California, of sound mind and memory, do make and publish this as my last Will and Testament.


"First - After all my just debts and liabilities are paid, I give and bequeath to my friend John A. McGLYNN, of San Francisco, the sum of ten thousand dollars.


"Second - All the rest and residue of my estate, both real and personal, I give and bequeath to my friend George WILKES, of the city of New York.


"Third - I hereby make, constitute and appoint my friends, George WILKES, John A. McGLYNN and Andrew J. BUTLER, Executors of this my last Will and Testament; and also declare that no sureties shall be required from them or either of them.


"Last - I hereby revoke all Wills and Codicils by me heretofore made, and declare this to be my only last Will and Testament.


"In witness whereof, I have hereto set my hand and seal, at the city of New York, this second day of January, one thousand eight hundred and fifty-nine."
