Coroner's Inquest.

Coroner Counts yesterday afternoon held an inquest upon the body of A. Turner, who was killed by his wife on Thursday evening. The following testimony was taken:

 

Testimony of George Chadwick.

George Chadwick sworn – I was acquainted with Turner during his lifetime; last saw him alive on Seventh street, east side, between K and L; was sitting on a bench about five feet in length; three men were sitting on it – myself, deceased and H. M. Van Namee. Last evening between 7 ½ and 8 o'clock, Van Namee and myself were sitting alone on the bench, when Turner, having been out riding, drove into Montgomery's stable and left his buggy, then came and took a seat on the end of the bench,  leaving Van Namee in the middle; just at that moment a person appeared in front of us, who at first glance I took to be an old colored person, with a basket and shaker bonnet; nothing was said, but the person appeared to go down on Turner with the left arm, she having a basket on the right, at which time a black junk bottle fell on the sidewalk; Turner raised up and started up the high grade toward K street, saying: “Doctor, doctor!” She stooped down and picked up the bottle and followed him; her bonnet dropped off (and was found this morning), and at that time I recognized the woman as Mrs. Turner, who resided on the south side of L street, between Seventh and Eighth; I went and saw the body, lying about twenty feet on the high grade, on the sidewalk, right in front of Doland's carriage shop, near the outside edge of the sidewalk; he did not live five minutes from the time he started from the bench, in my opinion; the woman was sitting down over the body crying, “Oh, my husband! Oh, my [husband] there was quite a number of persons there by the time I got there; I think I saw a slight sprinkling of blood on the side of the building (my shop), but very little was to be seen about there; saw no weapon about, nor did I see any about the body.

 

Testimony of H. M. Van Namee.

H. M. Van Namee sworn – I was acquainted with Turner during his lifetime; last saw him alive last evening on Seventh street, between K and L streets; he came along the street and sat down on a bench in front of Chadwick's blacksmith shop, where Chadwick and myself were sitting; it was between 7 and 8 o'clock in the evening; he came from the livery stable and sat down on the bench; just as he had sat down and had spoken to me, some woman came along; she looked like a street woman, roughly clad, and appeared to come from the street; I could not distinguish her clothes, as it was dark, but she appeared to have a bonnet like this (Shaker bonnet exhibited) drawn down over her face; she had a market basket on her arm, and appeared to have a bottle or bottles in it, as if she had just come from market; she came staggering along, and kind of pushed over on to Turner, I thought when I saw her coming she was going to fall on him; she muttered something, but I did not notice what it was; I jumped up, and so did Turner and Chadwick; Turner muttered something, but what, I cannot say; he next started and ran up the high grade; in the scuffle the woman appeared to drop a bottle and pick it up, but whether she struck him with it or threw it at him, I cannot say; she next followed him on to the high grade, he hallooing “Doctor!”

 

Testimony of Dr. Morgan.

Dr. Morgan sworn – Was called to visit, about half past 7 or 8 o'clock last evening, a man injured and lying on the sidewalk in front of Doland's carriage shop; I made my way through the crowd, and found a man lying on the sidewalk, and on examination found he was dead; do not know who the man was, but knew Mrs. Turner, who was there and called him her husband; the woman was making a good deal of lamentation, and said to me several times, “Doctor, say he is not dead.” I told her to keep quiet, and if he was not dead he very soon would be; close to his left hand there was a knife lying (witness shown a knife, which he recognized as the one), which I called the Coroner's attention to, and he picked it up; I then looked at the knife, but saw no blood, as it was dark and I had no glasses; as the knife lay, I saw a paper lying over it, which had blood on it (resembling the paper shown him).

 

Testimony of F. F. Doland.

F. F. Doland sworn – Was not acquainted with the deceased during his lifetime; the first thing that I saw was a man fall on the sidewalk in front of my shop, about three feet from where I was sitting; it was about half-past 7 or 8 o'clock in the evening; after he fell he turned over with his face toward me, and then turned over with his face toward the street; he then partly raised up on his right elbow, facing the street, and lodged against the awning post; I should think about one or two minutes had elasped when a woman appeared, coming from the south along Seventh street; she was saying something that I did not understand before she reached the man; as she approached him she knelt down beside him, one arm on him, and made, I should think, about four or five strokes with her right hand in and about his neck; I supposed it to be a man and his wife in a drunken row; afterward she rose up, and walked back and forth by the body, speaking of her husband; I began to think by this time that it was not a drunken row, and got down from where I was sitting, and at the same time a gentleman stepped upon the sidewalk, and I remarked that I believed that that woman had killed that man; I then took hold of the man, who was still leaning against the awning post, which appears to support him, and laid him down on his back on the sidewalk to examine him; I found blood on his clothes, and believed that he was dead; the woman I did not recognize at all; she appeared to be a fleshy woman, not very tall, but heavy; she was bare-headed when she came up; did not know what became of her; did not see any weapon or knife in her hand.

 

Testimony of Officer Tryon.

Thomas E. Tryon sworn – Am a police officer; myself and L. Dole arrested Mrs. Turner last evening, between 7 and 8 o'clock; I was standing in front of the circus when a man came up and said that a man was killed on Seventh street; I went over there and found a crowd standing in front of the Capital Hotel, around a woman; some man made a remark that he thought the woman had killed a man; I went over, and the woman was pretending to cry; I then spoke to her, and told her to come along with me, and stop crying; she asked where we were going to take her; Dole spoke up and said: “To the station-house,” she asked where that was; I told her a house down town; she said she would go, and then went peaceably; she wanted to know what we were going to do to with her; I said we should have to take her there and keep her; she then said: “Oh, my poor husband! What will become of my children?” She said nothing more, except “Take me out of this world.” I think that was the last remark she made; she appeared to make considerable noise, but did not appear much excited until we reached Third street, when she got more excited; did not find any weapon; she had no bonnet on at the time of the arrest, but was bareheaded.

 

Testimony of the Physicians.

The following document, from Dr. Cluness, was taken in evidence:

The undersigned, assisted by Drs. Simmons, Voeller and Hatch, have, this day, made a necroscopic examination of the body of Aaron Turner, and find six wounds, to wit: two upon the head, one of which entered the outer table of the skull, the other being a simple flesh wound; three upon the back of the neck, being flesh wounds; and one upon the right side of the neck, a little above to the right of the junction of the collar and breast bones, glancing downward and inward, and severing the subclavian artery of that side, as well as the descending neva cava. The last of these wounds was, in the opinion of the physicians present, the cause of death.

 

Verdict of the Jury.

We, the jurors summoned to inquire into the cause of death of the deceased, do find that Aaron Turner came to his death, in the city of Sacramento, on the 21st day of April, 1870, from the effects of a knife wound inflicted upon him by Mrs. Turner, his wife.

Interesting Closing Exercises-The Programme-Names and Standing of Graduates and the Middle and Junior Scholars-Superintendent Hill's Remarks to the Graduates and the Audience.

 

Closing Exercises at the High School.

Yesterday afternoon the public examination at our High School were brought to a termination by the closing exercises and the conferring of diplomas. For six days, as we have endeavored faithfully to record, the scholars have been closely and thoroughly questioned as to the progress they have made in their past year's studies. That they have done well, is the universal verdict of examiners and visitors. In order to make the closing exercises as interesting as possible to all present, teachers and scholars had gone to considerable pains in leading a cheerful and agreeable appearance to

 

The Examination Hall.

The large examination hall was tastefully decorated as follows: A string of ivy and roses intertwined crowned the blackboards. Over the arched windows, behind the rostrum, the hemlock and the pine twined together, while the pure and delicate lily peeped out from this dark green background. Vases of beads, full of rare and fragrant flowers, hung suspended from the windows. Wreaths of laurel and roses, and camellias, at appropriate intervals, adorned the walls; while over the exit door the word “Farewell,” in ivy, greeted the friends and parents as they bid adieu to the exhibition hall. The large hall was filled with the beauty and elite of our fair city. The minister and lawyer, the judge and the merchant, all were there to steal an hour from the cares of life, and revisit in thought once more their own old school days. The major part of the house was composed of ladies, who watched with admiring attention the efforts to please of their youthful friends. The Rev. Mr. Brown introduced the young ladies and gentlemen from the following

Remarks of the Programme.

The compositions of the young ladies were unexceptionable, and their reading and intonation very good. There was a freshness of thought expressed, a terseness and brevity about these young ladies' papers, that proved very gratifying to their appreciative friends. The nice taste observed by the young ladies in the choice of selected matter for reading will be observed by a glance at the programme. The young gentlemen, too, deserve credit for the rendering of their parts. Several of their declamations, it is as well to remark, were original. With melody and song, wit, humor, and serious thought, the time passed gratefully and pleasantly away, and ushered in the giving, to the following pupils, whose standing we annex,

BOLD ATTEMPT AT GARROTING.

Mr. K. Kinsey, who keeps the International Saloon on K street, below Fourth, was attacked by three men last night, between 12 and 1 o'clock, who came from the alley on Third, between L and M. He intended to go to San Francisco and took out of his safe $275. He missed the boat. The robbers tackled him as he passed the alley, and gave him two blows quickly. The man who struck the blows was a large man; the other two were of medium size. They struck him in the eye and on the lip, inflicting ugly wounds. Mr. Kinsey, being unarmed, got away and ran to the corner of Third and M streets. They followed him a few steps and then slunk back into the alley. Mr. Kinsey thinks he could identify the men if he were confronted with them. Chief of Police Smith has been notified.

 

COUNTY TREASURER'S OFFICE.

The following sums were paid in yesterday: By Isador Wormser, $11 03, twenty per cent of principal and interest for eleven months and twenty-three days on swamp and overflowed land location in the 16th and 36th sections. By Daniel Rioden, road tax receipt in District 22, sold to W. H. H. Davis, for $304, the balance of principal, less eight months' interest, on District No. 3, swamp and overflowed lands.

 

LOCAL DASHES.

Senator Banvard went below yesterday on business of an important nature.

 

The Red Jacket Tribe of the I.O.R.M. held their monthly meeting last evening.

 

Union Lodge of Free Masons did the honors at the funeral of their brother, Captain Soule, yesterday.

 

W. H. Ashton, Jr., has been chosen to act as umpire at the match game of base ball, to occur at the Park. Game will be called at 2 P. M. precisely.

 

Gwinn & Co., lime dealers, have erected a patent Howe platform scales on their premises on I street. The scales are constructed so as to take the weight of a railroad car and its contents to the amount of thirty tons. The cost of this piece of improvement is $1,000.

 

THE CHURCHES.

Religious Services Tomorrow.

 

METHODIST. - Rev. W. R. Gober will preach at the M. E. Church South, Seventh street, at 11 A.M. and 7 ½ P.M. Sunday School at 12 ½ P.M.

 

CONGREGATIONAL – Rev. I. E. Dwinell will preach in the Congregational Church to-morrow morning. The missionary concert will be observed in the evening.

PRESBYTERIAN – Rev. Mr. Roberts, of Smartsville, will preach in the Presbyterian Church, corner of Sixth and L streets, tomorrow morning and evening, at the usual hours. Sunday School after the morning service.

 

BENEFIT of ALBERT HART.

The performance of the Amateurs at the Metropolitan last evening, for the benefit of this gentleman, was a most gratifying success – both as to the pecuniary result and to the performance. The play selected was the “Hunchback,” a play which gives good opportunities, while it severely tests an amateur company. Mr. Hart, who can hardly be classed as an amateur, sustained the title role, and sustained it well; though his make-up was not of the best, and in some places his acting was a trifle overdone. Mr. Payne, as “Clifford,” was also good, very good, we think; and W. Bird, as “Modus,” the bashful lover, would have been at least respectable, even if judged by a professional standard. The character of “Fathom” gave Maze Edwards an  opportunity to exhibit a great deal of comic ability, though he should take pains to cultivate a somewhat more classical and subdued style. He has evidently copied too closely some of the mannerisms of one of our best comic actors; but he should trust rather to his own native talent for details, following the masters only in the general shaping of the part. Mrs. Julia Foote, as “Julia,” the leading lady of the play, was good, though somewhat unequal; in some places falling below, in others rising considerably above what may be considered the professional standard. Mrs. Anderson, in the character of “Helen”, was really good, and her acting in the flirting scene with “Modus” we have seldom seen excelled. The other characters - “Master Wilford” (Mr. Lansing), “Tinsel” (Mr. Berry), “Stephen” (Mr. Baker), and “Gaylove” (Mr. Hamilton) – were well sustained. Take it as a whole, the performance was far above the level of an amateur entertainment, and the company had evidently been thoroughly trained. We trust they will soon give us another opportunity for criticism.

 

FIRE LAST NIGHT.

The alarm of fire last night, shortly before 10 o'clock, was caused by the burning of a small frame house on the corner of Twelfth and E streets, occupied by a Mr. Brinkman. The Department deserve praise for the prompt manner in which they responded to the call; though unfortunately their efforts were fruitless, as the building and contents were entirely consumed before they arrived. The building being outside the fire limits, there was little or no chance to obtain water.

 

THE MONSTER CONCERTS.

The rehearsal for the monster concerts, under the direction of Professor Hugo Yanke, at the Congregational Church, was largely attended, and, judging from what we saw and heard, they cannot but be a success. Professor Yanke exhibited a letter from the Director of the Handel and Haydn Society of San Francisco. This gentleman promises from 175 to 180 singers, and says they are all under regular training for the occasion.

 

SUPERVISORS.

The only important business of the Board yesterday was the awarding of the contract to build the cells in the new Court-house. Bids were as follows: By Robert Anderson – single cells, $610; double, $1,015. J. McGuire – single, $515; double, $975. E. Gunn – single, $650; double, $1000. The contract was accordingly awarded to McGuire. The number of cells required is about twenty.

 

POLICE SLATE LAST NIGHT.

John Kinoan, a lodger, by officer Dunlevy; Ah Hoy, petty larceny (stealing five potatoes), by constable Hickey; James Morrow, drunk, by officers Martz and Hickey.

KNOCKED OVERBOARD. - Captain Houck, of the schooner Clara L. West, which arrived on Sunday night from San Francisco, brought news of the drowning, on Thursday last, of Captain Knobs, of the schooner Union, plying between here and San Francisco. The crew of the Union report that on Thursday last, April 28, while the schooner was “jibing,” opposite Benicia, as they were entering Suisun Bay, Captain Knobs was knocked overboard, and before assistance could reach him was drowned. The body has not been recovered. Captain Knobs was well known here, was sole owner of the Union, and has been running on this river for ten years.

 

GARROTING. - At about 11 o'clock on Sunday night John Kenshler was stopped by three men on Second street, near Avery's lumber yard, at the corner of M, and after a strong tussle with the largest of the three robbed of a silver watch, some coin and even a pocket knife and a piece of tobacco. Mr. Kenshler thinks he would know two of the men if he should meet them, and from his description the police have strong suspicions as to who they are.

DEPARTMENT of STATE.

Incorporations- Certificates of incorporation were filed in the Secretary of State's office, yesterday, as follows:

   Valley Savings and Commercial Bank.  Capital stock, $300,000,  in shares of $100 each.  Directors-- John B. Frisbie, H. Hackett, Charles H. Baldwin, L. C. Fowler, D. C. Haskins, J. M. Tobin and Edward McGettigan.  Principal place of business, Vallejo.

 

   San Domingo Mining Company, mine located in White Pine District. Capital stock, $1.000,000, in shares of $50 each.  Trustees-- J. Bowers, L. W. Greenwell and John A. McQuade. Principal place of business, San Francisco.

 

   Sidney Brooks Tunnel and Lode Company, works located in White Pine District, Nevada. Capital stock, $500,000, in shares of $50 each.  Trustees-- A. W. Von Schmidt, L. R. Meyer, J. M. Robertson, James Bowman and D. B. Northrup.

 

   New Mexico Mining Company, mines located in the Territory of New Mexico.  Capital stock, $30,000,000, in shares of $100 each.  Trustees--Alpheus Bull, G. D. Roberts, G. W. Beaver, J. D. Fry and Solomon Heydenfeldt.  Principal place of business, San Francisco.

 

A  LITTLE TOO BOLD.

   During the forenoon of yesterday, a chap who gave his name, when arrested, as William Mulligan, -- made bold probably by the successful exploits of other pilferers lately – entered the store of Adams, McNeil & Co., on the corner of L and Front streets, and quietly placed a twenty-five pound box of tobacco under his arm and walked out. Mr. Upson, who was on the sidewalk, noticed the man coming out, and seeing none of the clerks were present, asked him if that was all right, upon which he threw down the box and fled.   Mr. Upson pursued, but lost sight of him in the alley between K. and L.  Mr. Upson kept close watch, however, and finally, assisted by Mr. Rosenberg, who had witnessed the pursuit, caught him as he emerged from the alley and turned towards Ebner's hotel. He was recognized by Hamer & Keber, who keep a store opposite to where the arrest was made, as a man who had offered a fine black coat for sale at their own price on the day previous. He is probably no novice in his line of business, and will give an account of himself in the Police Court today.

 

MORE GARROTING.

   At about 9 o'clock, last night, a man was brought to the station house upon suspicion of his being one of three who had robbed a man on L street, between Second and Third. The man robbed was the man Francis A. Baker, mentioned a day or two since as having been fortunate enough to fall into the hands of the police while drunk, instead of the garroters, with $132 in his pockets. He was less fortunate last night under similar circumstances. The statement of the party arresting the supposed robber was that, while passing up L street, he noticed some men apparently scuffling and heard money rattle, and, seeing them leave suddenly, headed this man off and caught him, and is quite sure he is one of the men he saw. Baker came along to the station-house, but was too drunk to tell his story further than that he was penniless, and that his pantaloons, which showed themselves, were nearly torn off by the robbers in relieving him of it.

 

ARRESTS.

   William Mulligan, by citizens Rosenberg and Upson, for felony, in stealing a box of tobacco; and Mrs. Doe and Clarence Doe, by special officer Isaacs, for disturbing the peace.

SINGULAR  FREAK of an INSANE MAN.

About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, a young man who has been noticed about town for two or three weeks, and sometimes acting rather strangely, took it into his head to transfer the United States flag which has been displayed lately at the recruiting office, on Fourth street, to the rooms of the Young Men's Christian Association, on K, between Fourth and Fifth streets. He did the thing boldly, and while many were looking at him, but in the absence of Colonel Gray, the recruiting agent; and upon getting to the Christian Association rooms, acted as if he was chief of the establishment. The flag was soon missed, however, and the man, who gave his name as Frank Edmunds, arrested for the theft. Upon being taken to the station-house, his actions satisfied the officers that he was not of sane mind, and physicians were called to make an examination. In this he exhibited a most singular mixture of reason and nonsense, and after a long and critical catechising [sic] he was pronounced insane. He claims to have lived from 1847 to the outbreak of the war in New Orleans; to have then gone into the Southern army, and at times to have directed the movements of the greatest of its Generals; that when his advice was taken, Southern arms were successful, and when not taken the reverse. He has with him a note book in which various records are made, which clearly show the incoherence of his conversation and strangeness of his action to have been of some years' duration. He had made entry of an instance where he had been made to take whisky [sic] and gun cotton, which he said was just like drinking fire, for the purpose of making him fight, and when asked what gun cotton was,  said it was a kind of fire, but was like cotton, and was used by picture takers to make collodion [sic]. This last statement is correct enough, as such is indeed the principal use for that explosive now; but in regard to drinking it, he has confounded the old story of giving gunpowder for the purpose of making men reckless in battle; and much of his talk was of this character. He is apparently an educated man, and of good appearance and address, and about twenty-eight years of age. His justification for taking the flag was that the spirits had prompted him and that the Association room was the proper place for it. Altogether it is a very strange case. He will probably be released or sent to Stockton.

 

A  MISCEGENATIONOUS ROW.

The region of L street, between Second and Third, rendered classic by the presence of the major portion of the femmes du pave of African decent, and their lighter colored but meaner male adorers, was, yesterday, the scene of rather a noisy row, in which two of these dusky dames, named Elizabeth Johnson and Nellie Williams, were the principals, and William Williams, a specimen of the male bipeds aboved alluded to, an auxiliary. The two women were having a pretty strong bout at rough and tumble, when, as the war waged rather favorably for Elizabeth, Williams, as the self-avowed husband or protector of Nellie, came into the melee and soon succeeded in kicking the antagonist of his darling until she was rendered “hors de combat.” The marks of his feet were visible in the spaces where two of Elizabeth's front teeth were before the fight began. Just at this juncture, and before either party had been to the wash bowl, officers Babbitt and Rider appeared and took the delectable trio to the lock-up.

 

ARRESTS.

The arrests for yesterday foot up as follows: Manuel Garcia, by citizens Sumner, Miller and Camp, for feloniously entering the house of Mr. Sumner. Elizabeth Johnson, Wm. Williams and Nellie Williams, by officers Babbitt and Rider, for disturbing the peace and fighting. Michael Cochrane, by officer Rider, for assault and battery. Frank Edmunds, on suspicion of insanity, by officers McCracken and West. Richard Reynolds, by officers Dale and Rider, for murder. John Doe, by officers Lindsay and Swift, and Eliza (colored), by officer Babbitt, for disturbing the peace. Samuel Breeze, by officers Brissell and West.  Ah Ben, by officer Taylor, for assault to murder. Ah Hoe, by officers Rider and Harvey, for vagrancy. John Donovan, by officers Martz and Moore, for being drunk.

 

DIVORCE.

Susanna E. Pritchard commenced suit yesterday in the District Court for a divorce from her husband, Herbert Pritchard, on the ground of extreme cruelty and habitual intemperance. The complaint sets forth that the parties were married in Amador county, on the 26th of October, 1864, and lived together till about the 21st of April, 1868, since which time they have continued to live separately. Among the items of cruelty alleged was the presentation of a loaded gun at her breast, the throwing of hot grease in her face, etc. If these little ebullitions of temper are proven it is probable that Herbert will soon find himself a single man again.

 

THE ONLY RUNAWAY.

The only runaway which we can chronicle for yesterday is that of a pair of horses attached to an express wagon belonging to J. McCabe. The horses started from the vicinity of the Yolo bridge about 1 ½ o'clock, and after coursing through First and Front streets collided with the job wagon of James Carolan at the corner of J street, where they were secured. The pole of the McCabe wagon was broken short off, and made a narrow miss of running into the side of Carolan's horse. One of the hind wheels of the Carolan wagon were severely mutilated, so that two jobs for the wagon makers were furnished by this escapade.

 

ROBBER CAPTURED.

A Mexican, or Spaniard, named Manuel Garcia, was caught in the house of M. Sumner, on K street, between Fourth and Fifth, between 7 and 8 o'clock yesterday morning, and in his possession were found a gold watch and chain, which he had appropriated in his search for availables. Had this satisfied him he might have got off, but he continued his scrutiny of places where valuables were likely to be secreted, until discovered by the proprietor of the premises, who, with Mr. James A. Miller and S .A. Camp, marched him to the station-house.

 

NEW STAGE COMPANY.

There was filed today the certificate of incorporation of the People's Accomodation [sic] and Express Stage Line, organized to run a line of stages from Columbia, Tuolumne county, to Stockton. Capital stock, $10,000, divided into 400 shares of $25 each. Trustees – Robert Boyd, M. E. Hughes, H. B. McNeil, Thos. M. Byrnes, A. B. Preston, G. Hanna, S. Dingley, M. Magner, James G. Hughes and James N. Berger. 

 

COMMERCIAL.

May 10 – Arrived, schooner N. L. Drew, Miner, master, schooner Frances Ellerhorst, Nisson, and schooner Pinol, Larenson, from San Francisco, with lumber for N. L. Drew; schooner St. Thomas, Johnson, from San Francisco, lumber to N. L. Drew, and hay from Rio Vista to order; schooner Elko, Nelson, from Pittsburg Landing, coal for Central Pacific Railroad Company; schooner Liberty, White, from San Francisco, lumber to Friend & Terry; schooner J. W. Crawford, from San Francisco, shingles to J.W. Avery; schooner Annie R. Forbes, San Francisco, merchandise. Sailed – Schooner Chin Du Wan, for upper Sacramento, with merchandise; schooner Helen Merriam, for San Francisco, with granite, lumber and old iron.

 

CAUGHT BY SMOKING OPIUM.

The noted Chinese burglar, Ah Quong, caught on Sunday night, and who had eluded pursuit for some time, was captured while indulging in the vice of smoking opium. He was well fixed for his business, having what might be termed a pretty full burglar's kit of tools. His pass, or skeleton keys, ranged through all sizes of door locks, and his capture will probably reduce the number of burglarious operations, for a short time at least. Officers Rider and Harvey effected his arrest, and had he not added smoking opium to his other vices, he would probably have eluded them a while longer.

 

NEW GERMAN SONGS.

Professor Charles Winter has received from Conrad Weil and Philip Scheld, well known Sacramentans, now visiting in Europe, several books of the new popular songs of Germany, to be presented to the “Turner Harmonie” of this city. The hope was expressed, in the accompanying note, that many of these songs would be learned by the time the donors returned to Sacramento – a hope which we are assured will be fully realized.

 

PRIZES OF THE ART UNION.

The closing and distribution of the prizes of the Art Union is to take place on Thursday evening. Several fine paintings by D. H. Woods, the projector of the exhibition, including the large hydraulic mining scene on the American river, will be drawn, besides which a fine large photograph of the Yosemite Valley and falls will be given to each person holding a ticket. Let the gallery be liberally patronized for the two remaining days.

 

ADMITTED TO BAIL.

Richard Reynolds, the engineer of the train which ran over and killed two Chinamen on Monday, was arrested on the arrival of the noon train yesterday, by Officers Dole and Rider, on the charge of murder. In the evening he was taken before Justice Bingay, and admitted to bail in the sum of $5,000, with Richard Dale, F. A. Burk, John Suverkrup, Joseph Harris and H. S. Crocker as sureties.

 

CHICKEN THIEF.

About half-past 3 o'clock yesterday morning P. J. Hickman, corner of D and Eighteenth streets, saw a Chinaman attempting a raid on his chicken roost. A request to stop and consult about the matter being unheeded, Hickman sent a charge of shot after the thief, but the latter had made too good use of his legs to have the shot – which were fine – take effect. It is a pity he was not well peppered.

 

NEW LOAN SOCIETY.

The certificate of incorporation of the “Improved Order of Red Men's Savings and Loan Company” was today filed in the Secretary of State's office. Place of business, San Francisco Directors – W. T. Reilly,  Adam Smith, C. E. Hopps, J. M. LePais, J. H. Williams, J. D. Littlefield, R. P. Clement, C. H. Stanyan and C. D. Cushman.

 

THE WOULD-BE MURDERER CAPTURED.

Ah Ben, who shot the Chinawoman Ah Poy, night before last, was caught yesterday afternoon, at a house on I street, by Deputy Constable Faylor, upon information given by a Chinaman, and taken to the station-house, to await the result of the wound-inflicted.

 

HOUSE REMOVED.

A large frame building, formerly located on the west side of Eleventh street, near K, was yesterday removed to the east side, near J. The building and the lot on which it now stands are owned by Enoch Jacobs.

Conlon, for assault and battery, by officers Shellars and Faylor; John Diekman, by officers Moore and Shellars, for being drunk; Ah He, by private watchman McMahon, for petty larceny in stealing potatoes at Milliken & Co.'s store; and John Doe, by officers Babbitt and Martz, for discharging fire-arms within the city.

 

QUITE An EXCITEMENT.

A scuffle between Constable Shellars and Conlan, of the City Hotel, caused quite an excitement in front of that establishment yesterday afternoon. Shellars, it seems, proposed to take charge of a team left in front of the hotel, upon some ground or other, to which Conlan dissented. The scuffle ensued, and Conlan was subsequently arrested,  upon the charge of resisting and assaulting an officer.

 

FROM NATURAL CAUSES.

An inquest held over the body of D. W. Smart, an elderly man who died rather suddenly on Wednesday last, at the resident of A. W. Greenlaw, near Lisle's bridge, in American township, resulted in deciding that he died from natural causes. Deceased was aged 74 years, and an uncle of Mrs. Greenlaw, and had resided here a number of years.

 

INSANE.

An insane Chinaman, named Ah Sere, passed through to Stockton yesterday in charge of Under Sheriff A. Huntley, of Placer county.

 

MISERABLE DEATH.

The End of an Evil Career – A Chinese Courtezan Starved to Death.

A Chinese courtezan, know by the cognomen of Sing Qui, was found dead in a little box of a room in the rear of a Chinese house on the south side of I, between Second and Third streets, yesterday morning. The proceedings at the inquest, held by Justice Bingay, in the absence of Coroner Counts, are annexed, and go to show that the woman was served as it it (sic) is customary with the brutal proprietors of such women to serve them when they become useless or unprofitable as a money investment – simply left in a helpless condition to take care of herself or starve and die. The inquest, however, gives but a poor idea of the horrid condition of things which surrounded this corpse when found. The room was so small that there was not room to open the door without pushing aside the body, and so dark that at near noonday (11 o'clock) nothing could be seen without artificial light. Upon a candle being brought, a sight was revealed which we have no desire to attempt to portray. The woman had evidently fallen from the bed or bunk, or sank in an attempt to get upon it, and lay in the midst of filth which  must have taken weeks, or even months, to accumulate. No sign of food or drink, or of the least attention from without, could be seen there; and no one who was there could help concluding that those around her had made no effort to assist her or ameliorate her condition in the least, and that they were heartily glad to have the useless being taken away. There are doubtless many others in the city in very nearly the same condition as Sing Qui was previous to ending of her suffering by death.

 

CORONER'S INQUEST.

Two Chinamen, Charley and Bill, were sworn as witnesses, and the following testimony elicited:

Bill testified – The name of deceased was Sing Qui; she lived in a cellar on the south side of I street, between Second and Third; think she was about 17 years of age; she was a native of China and unmarried; she was a common woman; she had been sick two days; about 4 o'clock, this morning, heard, in a room adjoining the one in which I sleep, a noise as of some one falling; at  7 o'clock returned and found the deceased lying on the floor dead, with her face to the floor; I turned her over and then went to the Police office and gave information; the last time I saw her alive was about 10 o'clock last evening; came to California in 1849 in an English ship.

Charley testified – Know the deceased; saw her alive last about 10 o'clock last evening; she had been sick two or three days, and had no physician; about 4 o'clock this morning heard a noise and got up; witness told Bill to go and see what was the matter; Bill came back about 7 o'clock, and entering the woman's room found her dead, and turned her over on her back; witness and the witness Bill are natives of Singapore; came to California about ten years ago; have been a sailor on American ships; understand that deceased was afflicted with epileptic fits.

 

VERDICT OF THE JURY.

   We, the undersigned jurors, sworn to find as to the cause and manner of death of Sing Qui, a Chinese woman, on whose body an inquest was today held before J. N. Bingay, Justice of the Peace, do find that said deceased came to her death from natural causes.

AN INTERESTING HABEAS CORPUS CASE.

   The hearing of a Chinese abduction case, or, probably, a case of conflicting claims to the person of a tolerably well-favored Chinawoman, before the District Court yesterday afternoon, was the occasion of a good deal of excitement, and at its termination, of very nearly a mob riot. The substance of the matter seemed to be that Ah Hop took a liking to the Chinawoman in controversy, who was  the property of some member of the See Yup Company, and finding her willing, took her to Vallejo and married her last February, without paying the sum at which she was held by her owners. Her whereabouts being discovered, the See Yup man sues out the writ of habeas corpus and she is brought into Court.  After hearing the statements of both sides, and the reading of the marriage certificate, the Judge concluded that it had better be determined by the inclinations of the woman, and so decided. This decision was translated by an interpreter, and the woman told to go with the party she chose, when, to the utter confusion of the husband and his friends, she resolved to go back to her old master, and going up to him was picked up under his arm and carried out of the room and down the stairs in remarkably quick time.

   The hooting and shouting “Fi, fi,” which followed was shocking to hear. The room and passage-way had been filled with Chinamen during the whole proceeding, and they were now all huddling and tumbling down the stairs after the man with the woman under his arm, and it was with much difficulty that she got into a carriage. Some of the friends of the husband endeavored to pull her away, and were driven off by the officers and bystanders, and the crowd, which seemed to have come to a jam on the stairs, was being pushed right and left and punched about by sundry white men and boys who were in amongst them. Finally, the whole gang got down to the sidewalk, and there was considerable more hitting and struggling before the carriage, and the successful competitor with his prize got off. Two or three of the husband's friends were pulled out of the hind window of the vehicle before it started, where they had climbed in the hope of being able to either persuade or pull the woman away. It was no use, however, and, as the carriage rolled away, she waved her red handkerchief out at the discomfited husband and his enraged friends. The crowd then slowly dispersed, most of the Celestial element of it toward the region of I street, where the woman had been taken. This was the liveliest Court scene which this city has witnessed for some time, and, but for the presence of a goodly number of officers, would probably have been one of furious riot and, perhaps, bloodshed. It was quite evident that both parties had come in force in the hope of intimidating each other, and attempting a rescue on either side if possible. The money value of the woman was placed by those who believe in that idea of transfer at $1,000, and it is altogether probable that had the husband paid this price before marrying her, he would have now been in peaceable possession. As it is, he is in the fix of some of his white brethren; namely, a grass widower. The habeas corpus writ in this case seems to have had all the effect of a decree of divorce.

 

ART UNION DISTRIBUTION.

   The Art Gallery last evening was largely attended, and many who visited it for the first time were astonished to find so fine a display of pictures. The prizes, 200 in number, consisted of ten oil paintings and ten orders for portraits, to be painted at the studio of the managing artist, D. H. Woods, and 180 photographic views of various noted places. The result of the drawing was as follows:

 

LIST OF PRIZES.

   No. 1 – Mining Scene (large oil painting), W. H. Lubeck; 2 – order for portrait, W. H. Hill; 3 – American River bridge, I. L. Chatterdon; 4 – order for portrait, C. H. Light; 5 – Yosemite Fall, C. E. Fisher; 6 – order for portrait, D. H. Woods; 7 – Merced River, E. Kleibitz; 8 – order for portrait, D. H. Woods; 9 – Sunset on Steamboat Slough, D. H. Woods; 10 – order for portrait, Ida Woods; 11 – Indian Summer, M. Kraker; 12 – order for portrait P. Tiernan; 13 – order for portrait, D. H. Woods; 14 – Russian River, W. P. Coleman; 15 – Burning Bridge, G. H. Zeghl; 16 – order for portrait, Z. Holmes; 17 – order for portrait, J. Hayle; 18 – Sacramento River, C. Cook; 19 – order for portrait, Howard Hastings; 20 – order for portrait, B. H. Neilson. The remaining prizes were 180 large photographic views, choice of which was given in the order of the drawing. Their value, however, was the same, $5; only some 30 were delivered. This closed the regular exhibition, although we presume that the gallery will be still open to visitors. There will be an auction sale of pictures on Saturday, including some by Campion, Woods and others, at the rooms.

 

SHEEP BY RAIL.

   Four double-floored or two-story cars, filled with sheep, were brought to this city from Marysville, and forwarded to Alameda by the evening train of the Western Pacific yesterday. The sheep were the property of Mr. J. D. Cochrane, and were removed on account of scarcity of feed in the regions of their former pasture.

SERIOUS RUNAWAY ACCIDENT.

   Between 8 and 9 o'clock yesterday morning, a horse hitched to the delivery wagon of Krutzberger & Co. took fright on Tenth street, near G, and in attempting to rein him in, the driver, George Sommonette, broke one of the reins, and fell back from the seat, holding to the horse as best he could with one rein.   As the horse neared H street, he ran close to the sidewalk by Heicht's store, and after crossing H to the corner of Plaza, the wagon struck the piece of heavy timber planted there to keep wagons off the sidewalk, and threw Sammonette [sic] a distance of several feet against another piece of timber, placed for the same purpose, at the other end, and injured him so badly that for a while it was thought that he was dead.  He was immediately taken to the house of Dr. Payne, near by, and after proper treatment revived a little; but, his chief injury being a concussion of the brain, it is uncertain even yet whether he will survive. The horse, now free from the driver's restraint, kept on with the wagon at frantic speed, and, turning from Tenth into J street, kept the middle pretty well until, coming in contact with Richardson's milk wagon, between Seventh and Eighth streets, the wagon was overturned in front of the furniture store of Van Heusen & Huntoon, where Mr. Hontoon [sic] seized and succeeded in holding him. Fortunately the injury to both wagons was slight; but, had the horse not been caught here, there was a fair show for serious mischief on the line he was traveling. Sammonette[sic] was taken to his brother-in-law's (Mr. Kreutzberger) house at about 6 o'clock last evening, when it was thought that his symptoms were favorable. He received besides the injury to his head some severe bruises on his side, which of themselves might disable him for some time. He had part of the broken line in his hand when picked up, and, being a strong man, there is little doubt but that he would have been able to have held or, at least, guided the horse, had they not broken at the critical moment.

 

RECOMMISSIONED.

   The Governor yesterday reappointed and commissioned anew the Directors of the State Insane Asylum, appointed a week or ten days since. The former commissions were issued under the old law; the latter under the new law, approved  April 4, 1870. The gentlemen thus reappointed are: W. S. Montgomery, Edward Twitchell, John B. Hewson, Gilbert B. Claiborne and Edward Moore.

 

WACHHORST'S CLOCK TOWER.

This very commendable and much-needed public improvement was receiving its final coat of paint yesterday, and it was expected to have the dials set and the clock ready to show and strike the time by sundown, should the party who is superintending the work return from the Bay in time. This clock tower is a very handsome and highly finished affair, and reflects credit upon the workmanship and skill in design of its builder, Mr. Contell, as well as upon the liberality and public spirit of Mr.  Wachhorst, whose store and building it both advertises and embellishes. The tower is in two sections – the first 24 feet high by 8 feet square, and the second 9 feet high by about 5 feet square, and surmounted by a graceful dome and weathercock. Both these sections are surrounded at the top with a neat, arching cornice, and the whole is so entirely in keeping with the character and design of the main building as to make the general effect very fine. The hour-dials are about forty inches in diameter, facing nearly with the points of the compass, and can readily be seen quite a long distance either way. The works of the clock stand on the outside of the second story of the building, in a handsome case, and the striking apparatus, having two bells, is arranged to strike the quarters on the small bell, and the full hours on the large one. The expense of this tower and clock will be in the neighborhood of $2,500.

 

THE LAST MAN – AND WOMAN, TOO.

   Just as the 2 o'clock train of the Central Pacific was passing the Water Works building yesterday a carriage drove at full speed to overtake them, and, having got even with the baggage car, stopped and let out a Chinaman and woman, who made strenuous efforts to get on the cars. It was too dangerous, however, at the speed they were going, and the cars passed on, leaving them standing there. In passing the bridge, however, the train checked speed again, and they were bundled into the carriage, which again overtook the cars, and this time they got on board. Happening to be so near by, we recognized the woman and man who had figured so conspicuously in the District Court yesterday; and upon inquiry found that Ah Hing, who had recovered the alienated affections of his truant mistress, had concluded to put her out of reach of her husband, Sam Hop, by getting her off to the mountains. Sam Hop being caged in jail, along with his two trusting friends, on charges of threats, disturbing the peace, etc., can now see the folly of his course in attempting to defy the law. Had he been out yesterday, it is quite likely that Ah Hing would not have got his prize away so easily. “But now she's gone and left him,” sure enough.

 

ARRESTS.

   The slate at the station-house contained the following record of arrests for yesterday; B. Eisenmenger and Henry Eisenmenger, by Officer Rider, for assault and battery; John Doe, by Officer Moore, for being drunk; Johanna Blake, by Officer Babbitt, for threats against property; Elizabeth Johnson, by Officer Babbitt, for assault and battery; John Shellers, by Officer Harvey, for assault and battery and disturbing the peace; George Faylor, by Officer Harvey, for assault and battery; Joe Watson, by Officer Isaacs, for acting as a runner at the Central Pacific depot.

 

TARGET SHOOTING.

The prizes shot for by the City Guard, at the picnic at the Montezuma Grove on Thursday, were awarded as follows: First prize, a company medal, valued at $150, won by Robert Roberts; second prize, silver medal, won by Thos. J. Keegan; third prize, silver medal, won by Geo. Hull; fourth prize, silver star, won by Sergeant Guthrie; fifth prize, pair of pantaloons, presented by John Suverkrup and won by Quartermaster Sergeant E. Haswell; sixth prize, leather medal, awarded to Lieutenant Oscar Wilder.

 

ANOTHER FREAK OF NATURE.

   Mr. C. A. Hart informs us of another freak of nature, of a similar character to the one chronicled last week, in regard to the field of grain belonging to Mr. William H. Hill.  Mr. Hart says he planted potatoes this year on a piece of ground on which grain had never been sown, and that a crop of barley came up which has completely supplanted the potatoes. The barley is making such a splendid crop that he has concluded to harvest it and let the potatoes go. Fresno Expositor, May 11.

   The following is a record of the last shooting match of the Sacramento Rifle Club: Number of flags – J. Stuber, 19; C. Wolleb, 8; J. Thoman, 7; George Schmeiser, 5; C. H.

HOUSE ON WHEELS.

   We noticed in the upper part of the city, yesterday, a pair of horses, attached to a windlass, drawing a frame house, about 20 by 40 feet, and one story, along Ninth street. It is en route for I and Fourteenth streets, and was taken from P street, near Sixth, and is the property of William Willis.

 

BOND FILED.

   The bond of J. W. Mandeville, as Commissioner of Immigration, was filed with the Secretary of State yesterday. The bond is in the sum of $25,000, with John J. Marks and Peter Donahue as sureties.

DASTARDLY INCENDIARISM.

Attempt to Fire a Lumber Yard – Escape of the Incendiaries.

   About 1 o'clock on Saturday morning, an attempt was made to burn the immense lumber piles in the yard of Friend & Terry, on the corner of Front and M streets, but fortunately the fire was discovered before it had gained much headway, by William Strickland, watchman in the employ of the Navigation Company, who at the same time saw two men run from the premises up Front street. Had he not feared to let the fire get a start, Strickland thinks he could have caught at least one of the fleeing scoundrels. He thought it safer, however, to stop the flames, and accordingly aroused William Hadwick, who lives near by; and with a few buckets of water this was soon accomplished. The incendiaries were now, of course, out of reach, and all search for them since has proved unavailing. It was found that they had saturated the ends of the boards set on fire with coal oil, and with the strong wind which was blowing a terrible conflagration must have ensured, had not the timely discovery of the attempt frustrated it. The whole of the lumber, together with the block on the north would have probably been wholly consumed. To set fire in such a place evinces a thorough acquaintance with the situation, and a most villainous determination to destroy property. It is a pity the scoundrels could not have been caged.

 

The Base Ball Match.

   The second of the three match games of the now national game of base ball, between the rival clubs of this city, the Sacramentos and Capitals, was played at the Agricultural Park on Saturday afternoon, and resulted this time in favor of the Capitals.

REYNOLDS ACQUITTED.

A Splendid Car.

   There seems to be scarcely a limit to the gorgeousness with which the railroad palaces of the Eastern roads are gotten up; every new one that comes along excels those which had preceded it, and when we suppose that the climax has been reached, another makes its appearance, surpassing all. The Springfield coaches came first, then the Silver Palace, then the Pullman, and one, two and three patterns of these last, all finer and finer, and yesterday came a rolling palace, belonging to the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad Company, which is, in many respects, the grandest of the Pullmans. It came through with a party of excursionists, consisting of David Dows and family, A. L. Dows and family, Vermont; Coleman and wife, Stebbins and wife, J. N. Fisk and wife, David and Samuel Hoe, printing press manufacturers, of New York.; P. A. Hall, Assistant General Superintendent, and Colonel E. F. Hooker, of Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. The party, however, left the palace here and proceeded to San Francisco on the steamer.

 

Mrs. Howard, Again.

   The name of this noted individual was used upon a warrant yesterday, upon complaint of her landlady, Mrs. Washburn. The officers, however, were not successful in finding her ladyship in her usual quarters, on the corner of Sixth and I streets, and up to a late hour last night she had not put in an appearance at the lock-up. The offense this time is said to be an attempt to drive all other tenants out of the building she occupies, vie et armis. Mrs. Howard is one of the irrepressibles.

 

Held To Answer.

   Manuel Garcia, who claims to be insane and manifests his insanity in looking after watches and trinkets belonging to other people, did not take kindly to his new quarters in the County Jail yesterday. On being transferred to that institution from the city prison to await the action of the grand jury, it required the united exertion of three officers to induce him to keep quiet, and he finally had to be ironed. Manuel intends to convince people that he is insane, whether or no.

 

Horse Stolen.

   Word was left at the Station-house yesterday that a horse had been stolen from a lot where he had been picketed out, near the corner of Twelfth and H streets, on Sunday evening, during church time. The horse is the property of Dr. J. W. Marshall, and is described as small, a dark-cream color, of stout build, with a dark stripe down his back,  and black mane and tail. Parties seeing or hearing of such an animal will please give notice to the officers.

 

Emmet Guard Election.

   The election held for the choice of a Captain for this company, at their armory in the Pavilion, last evening, resulted in favor of Hon. Michael Horan, member of the Assembly for Sacramento county. Mr. Horan will doubtless make an efficient officer.

 

Commercial.

   On May 16, arrived – Schooner Cine Greenwood, Peterson, from San Francisco, with lumber to N. L. Drew & Co.; sloop Phil Horn, White, from San Francisco, with coal for Sacramento Gas Company. Sailed – Steamer Chin Du Wan, from Colusa, with merchandise.

 

Arrest.

   The only arrest recorded at the station-house last night was that of Ah Tong, by Officer Cambridge, for burglary.

Shoulder Dislocated.

   Between 8 and 9 o'clock yesterday morning a man named Charles Spencer, while engaged in removing chairs from the Pavilion, tipped over one of the chairs and fell to the foot of the flight of steps in front of the building. He was picked up, and at first thought to be fatally hurt; but, upon being carried to the County Hospital, where he was attended by Dr. Donaldson, it was discovered that the fall had dislocated his left shoulder. He is doing well, and may rejoice that his injuries are not more serious.

SUMMONS.

   State of California, County of Sacramento, ss. - In the District Court of the Sixth Judicial District.

   The People of the State of California to Rosalie Butler, greeting: You are hereby summoned to answer the complaint of John E. Butler, in said Court filed against you, within ten days from the service of this writ, exclusive of the day of service, if served on you in this county; if served out of this county, but within this Judicial District, within twenty days; but if served on you without said District, then in forty days from such service, exclusive of the day of service, in an action commenced on the 21st day of May, 1870, in said Court.

   Said action is brought to obtain a decree of divorce dissolving the bonds of matrimony existing between you and the plaintiff in this action, upon the grounds of willful desertion for more than two years last past, all of which will more fully appear by reference to the complaint filed herein.

   And you are hereby notified that if you fail to answer the complaint as directed, plaintiff will apply to the Court for the relief therein demanded.

   In testimony whereof, I, W. B. C. Brown, Clerk of the Sixth Judicial District Court aforesaid, do hereunto set my hand and affix the seal of said Court, at office in the city of Sacramento, this 21st day of May, A.D. 1870.

BADLY MAIMED BY A DOG.

   A huge cur, seeming part Newfoundland, which has for some time been kept about the house of Engine Company No. 4, on Fifth street, between J and K, for what purpose it would be hard to tell, but perhaps to howl whenever the bells rang – which he usually did, and that loudly – seized a man named Charles Brandaker, while passing there Friday night last, and throwing him from the sloping sidewalk, broke his right ankle and bruised him pretty severely. This dog is an old offender, and has frequently attacked and greatly frightened persons there before, but never so savagely as in this instance. After throwing Brandaker from the slope, he caught him by the coat collar, and being a large and powerful dog, dragged him underneath it, into so close a place that he had to be dragged out again by the parties who came to his relief. It is needless to say here that these great lounging curs are an absolute nuisance; that fact is patent to everyone, and it is a disgrace to the city that some measure is not devised for abating it.  It is likely that a suit against the city will grow out of this affair. As this dog has been a fixture about this engine house for many months past, we hope, at least, that it will have the effect of making our city fathers do something to diminish the number of useless dogs about the streets.

 

ANOTHER SUIT FOR DIVORCE.

   John E. Butler, on Saturday, commenced a suit for divorce against Rosalie Butler, alleging that they were married in this county in 1856; that in November, 1864, defendant absented herself, and that he has since had no knowledge of her whereabouts or proceedings. The lawful time having elapsed during which either husband or wife may be absent without forfeiting the rights and protection governed by the marriage obligation, said John E. Butler proposes to be freed from further being compelled to consider himself a married man, and asks the Court to annul the marriage contract between the aforesaid Rosalie and himself.

 

THE SICK DODGE AGAIN.

   A man named Henry Stonebreaker, who was arrested for stealing a watch a few nights ago, was so affected on Saturday morning, about the time he was taken to the Police Court for examination, that when officer Dunlevy went for him he found him on the floor of the prison, in pretty lively convulsions. Dr. Simmons being called in, found the young man's pulse to be all right, and he in a generally healthy condition. It is surmised that he was “playing possum,” in order that he might get into the hospital. It will be remembered that this sick dodge was played successfully here a year or two ago.

 

HEBREW BENEVOLENT SOCIETY.

   At the annual meeting of the Hebrew Benevolent Society of this city, held yesterday, the following officers were duly elected for one year; Henry Kohn, President; G.Woolf, Vice President; W. H. Bremer, Secretary; P. Franklin, Treasurer; Trustees – A. Levy, M. Levy and A. Hamburger.

 

EN ROUTE.

   Under Sheriff McBrown, of Nevada, passed through the city on Saturday with an insane man named Eugene Oakless, who had been committed to the Asylum.

 

ARRESTS.

   The arrests since our last report are recorded at the Station-house as follows: Sam Astin, by Special Officer Taylor, for being drunk; – Howell, by Special Brissell, for being drunk; William Luce, insane, brought in by Deputy Sheriff J. C. Wood, of Trinity county; Charles Jordan, by Officers Rider and Martz, for being drunk; Jim Ryan, by Constable Hawks, of Yolo county, for petty larceny; George Neveryet, by Officers Chamberlin and Babbitt, for disturbing the peace; Geo. W. Wallace and A. C. Sweetser, by Officer Karcher, for violating city ordinance; Hugh Dana, by Constable Hawks, of Yolo county, for resisting an officer.

 

BROUGHT IN.

   Hugh Dana, the father of Jack Dana, who escaped from arrest yesterday and Saturday, as mentioned elsewhere, was brought to the Station-house late last night by Constable Hawks, having been arrested for assisting in preventing the arrest of his son, yesterday.

 

CHURCH SOCIETY INCORPORATED.

   There was filed on Saturday, with the County Clerk, the certificate of incorporation of the “Church of the Disciples of Christ.” Trustees – John Davis, John O. Garrett, and William Chamberlin.

 

SPECIAL OFFICER APPOINTED.

   Hugh Jeffery was appointed on Saturday by Sheriff Woods a special deputy, for the district between Twelfth and Tenth, on K street.
