(From the Mobile Times, 17.] An Italian named Joseph Galatia, who had unfortunately became Involved In some diffi culty, was brought in contact with the United States District Court, on Tuesday last, and by order of the Judge, sent to Jail. About six p. m. he attracted the attention of hisjailers by his strange and unusual appear* ancc. and stated, in reply to questions, that he did not feel well. IDs case, however, did not strike his questioners as one that should create unnecessary alarm. In the morning, however, greatly to their surprise, they found him apparently dead. By order of the Marshal the body was Anal ly turned over to tbe friends ol the diseased for burial. Every appearance of death was manifested. The strange part of the story is still to come. Upon arriving at the grave yard the friends of the diseased found that the coffin had been partly broken open, ap parently by force exercised within. They at once held a consultation, which resulted in the opening of tbe coAln, when the ap pearantly dead man was fonnd to present the most unmistakable signs of life. Although there was evidently life, there was no eonsc’onsncssjandafler unsuccessfully trying the simple methods known to them to resuscitate the unfortunate man, the body still imbued with life, was removed to a neighboring shed and a physician hastily sent [ or - The whole strength of tbe almost buried man seems to have been throughly exhausted by the un successful effort he nad made to make his condition known to his mends, and his power of consciousness and exertion seems to have deserted him simult aneously with the bursting of the lid by his frantic exertions to save himself, for he was certainly dead when the phyaclan who was sent for arrived on tbegroond. Proposed ITlonnim-nt to Artemns Ward. (From the Richmond Examiner.] A proposition has been made by “A. R ca <V , .who is a facetious writer on the New Orleans Crescent , to erect a monument to tbe late “Artemus Ward.” As the de ceased was a printer by profession, “A, Head,” wbo is also a retired member of the craft, proposes that printers in the land, and every one who can perform such a feat, shall set “one thousand ems” of type, to be paid for in the usual way according to the price in the locality, and appropriated to the pur pose of raising a monument which shall typify” the virtues of the deceased, and transmit his memory to futurity in im perishable bronze or marble. The proposer of this scheme has already set his one thousand ems and is now on his way to the Paris Exhibition as correspondent for the Crescent . His real name has not transpired, A. Head being his nom de plume. Whether the idea wM take and become popular Is more than wc can foresee; but it Is certainly a very good way to raise a largo anm of money. There cannot be less than twenty or thirty thousand practical printers in tho land, active and retired, and if each would set his allotted amount of matter, at an av erage ofllfly centspcr thousand ems of type, the sum would be /rom ten to Aftcen thous and dollars. Perhaps the money could be apptoprlated to a better object, for, after life’s Atibi fever, wo think. Artemns sleep! well, and desires no imposing stone or pom pons column to typify his virtues or repress his vices. New JTlotcrlal for Paper* An inventive person writes to a Southern exchange that paper can be made from the common swamp cane. He says: “The machinery is simple and not very costly. It consists of a ten-horsepower on §lne and steam boiler complete, and a cylin er boiler thirty feet long and forty-nine Inches in diameter, with one head perma nently secured, the other bead to work upon hinges, and fastened with a latch so it can be opened by means of a lever. “fill the cylinder boiler with green cand just cut from tbe forest, and when fhll, shut the boiler up and fasten the head so It will not open until it Is wanted to be; then let in red hot steam for thirty minutes, or more if necessary. The hot steam will fill every tiorc and cavity in the cane, and when charged full, then throw off the head by means of tbe lover, and when the cane comes In contact with the cold air from outside, each and every cane explodes, and loaves the whole a mass _ about tbe consistency of oakum, which is then ready for the paper mills.” The paper obtained in this way Is said to be of better quality than that made from common rags. Arrest of a nan on Suspicion of Haring ITlurderea Hl* uaushtcr. Great excitement is now existing at Bran don, Vermont, owing to the discovery of the body of a daughter of George Goodcnough buned In her father’s cellar.

Mr. Goodenoogb has been arrested and lodged in jail at Rutland.on suspicion of having mur dered her, the report being that he wished to get rid of her on account of her being of un sound mind.

It Is a wild, dreary night—the rain pouring steadily down, and tho southwest wind blowing “ great gnus,” rolling the sea In on tho bar at tbe entrance of the Golden Gate, and making it impossible for any vessel to enter the port. I would not’llketo be on one of the vessels ontsldo to-night. The rain fall has already exceeded the an nual average (twenty-two Inches) by some three inches, but still it comes, and it seems as though it never would let up. Stockton has been flooded, though tho damage was slight; but Sacramento has thus far escaped with one or two bad scares. Travel Id the interior ol tbe State, especially in the val leys, Is at a standstill, but there Is a bright side to the picture as well. We shall have famous crops throughout California this sea son. THE ANTI-CHINESE RIOTERS. The trial of the twelve persona alleged to have acted as ringleaders In the late mcr derons outrages by the Irish mob on the Chinese laborers of this city, is still dragging its slow length along. Our law allows every defendant to testify In his own behalf, and, ofcsursc, every mother’s son of them has sworn that he had no hand or voice in the riot. This law has been found to work badly here, producing perjury without limit, and it will be repealed or modified at the nest session of the Legislature. While the Irish rioter is allowed to testify fully in his own behalf, and swear himself out of the difficul ty, his victims, the unarmed and defence less Chinamen, are not allowed to testify against him at all; It would not do to allow a yellow man to testify against a white man, you know! What coaid be more absurd or better calculated to make a mockery ot Jus tice and secure the escape of criminals of the vilest stamp? The evidence, however, shows one thing conclusively, viz., that the mob was composed exclusively of men who quit work at $1.75 In coin per day to wreak their brntal vengeance on the victims of their blind and stupid prejudice. There was uot a hungry* or unemployed man In alt the mob of bowling fiends who disgraced our city. AID TO IMMIGRATION. While this is going on. an association with a capital of $5,000,000 is forming to bring be fore tbo world the advantages offered by California to industrious men, and Indace white Immigration from Europe and the At lantic Slates. “Said company to continue In operation for twenty years. Its exclusive objeot to be to aid, by the publication of truthful reports, the establishment of widespread agencies and correspondents; the assistance, by loans of Its money and its credit to those who, with a view to the permanent cultivation of onr public lands, may settle thereon; also, to sustain every species of industry; and to induce immigration from Europe of classes of persons slutable to this country and its resources.’* A mass meeting is to be called next week to further this project and induce subscrip tions to the capital stock. WHO SHOULD COME. The farmer, miner and mechanic, able and willing to work—lf having families, all the better—ore greatly wanted in California, and none o/Aen. We have a full supply of professional men ond business men of all classes, and a fearfully large surplus of drones. No country on earth possesses. In proportion toils population, such a number of worthless drones as Calilornl*. Of the young men without any regular trade or oc cupation, who come here expecting to re alize a fortune by doing nothing, or with a vague idea that “something will turn up” in their favor, nine out of tea become abso lute “bummers” and, after living an aim less, hopeless, shiftless life, getting an occa sional meal, Heaven knows how, and ekelng ont a miserable existence by borrowing where they can never return, or swindling by some species of false pretences, die In a hospital, or get home to the States again through the efforts of their friends, to tell long stories of famous fortunes which they made In California and lost speculating in stocks, or by being robbed on some moun tain road, or on tbe Isthmus, on their way homo. No such men should ever come here. Nor should unmarried females, having no protectors or means of earning an honest livelihood, ever seek this State. Since Cali fornia was settled by Americans, a large number of girls, beautiful, accomplished and, In many cases, wealthy, have grown up here, and the supply may be quoted as in excess of the demand in the matrimonial market. But to those willing and able to take hold of hard work and settle down for life on a farm, or at some business which they can carry on and control within their own means, I know of no such inducements as are offered by California. DEATH A LA CALIFOBNIA. While speaking of this, I am reminded of the frequent cases of suicide In this State, growing out of the propagation of the ac cursed doctrines of modem “ Spiritualism,” and the largo number of men who have failed to win success in the Golden State and have lost all strength of character and ambition, whilea false pride remains behind. Only last week I met on the street a Ano gentlemanly, well dressed young man with whom I bad a slight acquaintance, through his brother, who has been some years in my employment, and talked a few minutes with him about a situation in a store as a clerk which was offered him, and on other sub jects. Wc shook hands and parted. Next morning, on coming down to the oAice, I was handed this letter, written in a plain, bold and utterly unshaken hand, carefully scaled and addressed to me: San Fnascisco, February ID, ISC7. Fnirsn: Probably when you receive this note I shall have passed Into the spirit laud. No doubt, von will think 1 have done a rash act—perhaps it Is—bat 1 have battled in the world long enough Do not think I am insane because 1 lake my own Ule. i pledge you my word 1 am, at Ihlamomem. as sane as any man. 1 have been thinking the matter over for some time, and have come to the conclusion to pass In my checks. Please do me the favor to write to my dear brother. Caleb, the ponlcnlaiß. Iwtsli you good bye and success. ReepccUuUy yours, (Signed), Ozones Wnmso. Not another word to any human being I I read the Jetter with a feeling I cannot de scribe, and walked over to his room across the street. Great God, what a sight! He lay on h!s back on the bed, holding In one hand a Derringer pistol, and in the other a small looking-glass, which he had held be fore his face to assist him In directing the fatal shot. He had placed the pistol against one side of his head, and the ball lay on the pillow on the opposite side, while the blood covered everything around. I mane some inquiries. He bad made considerable money by Incky speculations In stocks in 'Washoe, lost it all, and got tired of life. He owed but a single month’s room rent, $12.50, and on the evening previous to the suicide he said to the landlady, “I will hand you my room-rent to-morrow.” She replied that he need give himself no trouble about It, as any time when It was convenient to him would suit her. Had he made iis necessities known—assuming them to be the cause of his suicide, which may not have been the case—he would hare received im mediate assistance, but he probably never mentioned tbe subject to any one. The de ceased was about thirty-three years of age, unmarried, and a native of Massachusetts. We hurled him nest day during a driving rain storm, and already the circumstance is half forgotten by San'Franc!-co. I should add that his letter was written on the day I saw him lost alive, and ho evidently went to bed that night intending to commit suicide nest morning, which Intention he carried out. FROM THE ORIENT. From China we learn that tbe establish ment of the new steamship line from this port Is regarded in China as certain to trans fer tbe course of exchanges from London to San Francisco, and great Interest is felt in the enterprise. A full passenger list awaits the Colorado on her return trip, and among the visitors from the Asiatic side will be a Japanese embassy of six persons and suite of servants, coming to see our country and examine our factories, our war vessels and our navy yards. As they they visit the Atlantic Slates, you should see that they are Invited to visit the West. I find that the Japanese, and Chinese even, have a good idea generally of New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Ba't mire and 'Washington, bat have never heard of Chica go, or St. Louis, or Cincinnati. To them the Great West is as yet a wholly unknown, un discovered land. When the Colorado returns, the readers of the Tribune will hear from the lands on the other side of the Pacific through a special correspondent. Adlos I Altamonte. An Item for tbe Ladles.

P. Ol.le ft. Sparta, Wls. I see the gentleman spreads my claims before the pub lic, and claims that 1 have infringed his rights and his claim tot Patent under date of September 30th, 1362, and alio February 13th, 1306. I will spread his claims on axles before tha public, so that all parsons, who are adepts in the business, can readily see Just what claim* were allowed to the gentleman named above. [Claim of September 30th, 13C3J I claim having the axle covered with Babbitt’s metal, with an oil reservoir made lo such meta'. all at herein set lorth and described. No. ot Patent, 3^561. (Claim of February 13th, 1366.] I claim tbe Collar B, on Axle A. constructed with a recess (A) for the insertion of butt end ot boxing E. substantially as and for the purpose described. T will a»k Ur. Gillett where I use or infringe any part clhlsclatma? Do I use Babbitt metal? Do Ime Ms oil duct or chamber? I believe he claims nothing of this kind. If his claim or Invention was worth any thing, why has it not been brought before the public before? Why secrete It? The truth Is, It is lot now and never was worth anything. H 1 am, as he claims, infrtr ging his rights, there Is no necessity ot this coarse of advertising and cautioning the public, lor he can imd plenty ol the legal profession in Racine that will, if be shows them anything that they can make oat a caiesoasioget me Into Court, will do his business without the tuuai retainer. He can. II 1 Invade his rights by infringing bis Patent, by enjoining me pat n stop to my agents selling or in any way offering to sell or dispose oi this right, and certainly if the case were reversed, and 1 In bis stead, if I felt as be does 1 would enjoin him at once; but the fact is, bo has no Patent that covers anything of any value. In view ot that fact, I do nat, nor need he, have any fears of my Infringing any part of his claims, as from preseat appearances no invent on allowed by the Com missioner in the past live years has tbe value of the Patent granted to myself February stb, 1567.
