The result is Morris has better satisfied customers, better looking ones, and more of them, than any other man in the trade in Sonoma county. This )B why we give Morris this putT; and not because he contemplates speedily changing his base of operations by taking a new member into the Morris family. Protrst Aoaihst Dancing. The Synod of the PrcHbyterian Church, at its late session at San Francisco, passed a resolution disapproving of the practice of some of the members of that church attending and participating in "public dancing." They declare it to be injurious to sound morality and religion, not only leading professed Christians astray, but weakening the influence of parents in restraining their children from scenes of worse dissipation. They also ask persons connected with the cause of education to discountenance it iti every suitable way. Tho resolution was ordered to be read, to all the congregations of the denomination. ',, 11,1. I, In ii. I t Aeronautic. Mr. Aj O. Wright, of Santa Crus, ssys the Senlitiitii has just made the model of a novel air-boat which he has been years planning and terfecting, and which he intends to ave patented In this boat-he expects to be able to cross the American continent in a few days. The model consists of a monitor-shaped boat, with a; acrw-whl drudder at the trnr covered with a large balloon also sharp , at tne ends; It is to be propelled by a steam engine! or electro-magnetic ma- chthery sufflclnitly" powerful to' resist or avoid counter currents of air. The inventor is extremely sanguine of the success of his plan. . .

Much credit is due Superintendent Clark for the care bestowed upori the work, and the economical manner he expends the mon ey appropriated. Only about twelve months since a corporation known as tho California Central Pacific Railroad Company, was organized, the object of which was to construct that great national highway the Pacific Railroad from the 'West-era elope to the tido water.' What do we behold to-day r Another example of-the enterprise of Culifornians. Com mencing at this city, the Company have graded their road eighteen miles into the foot-hills, and havo laid down the track for about two miles. Yesterday was a day of great jubilee here. The "Gov. Stanford," a locomotive of huire proportions and great power, was placed upon the track and made its first trial trip. Amid the cheers of the mul titude, it steamed majestically up I street, and around the northern portion of the city to Twentieth street and back, proving all that could be wished. In the midst of this prosperity, the Company have met with a serious disaster. I refer to the death of T. D. Judah.who was the Chief Engineer, the main stay of tho Uompany, and a most thorough, eneriretic and persevering man. The passage of the Railroad Bill through Congress, was owing chiefly to his un tiring seal, and the successful inaugu ration of the great work, to which he devoted so much of his time and labor, must stand as An undying monument to Ins memory. Our County Teachers' Institute held its session here last weejt, and was well attended. Besides the usual exercises of the Institute, lectures were delivered by Pr. Logan and G. R. Moore and others upon educational topics. Mr. A. tt. Jackson, during the course of some remarks ori education in general, submitted some very sensible suggestions, which are deserving the careful consideration of every teacher and parent. Me contended, ami gave it as the result of eighteen year a experience in the school room, that there is no system in our education, and that what is called our system of education i re sulting only in the effemtnation of the race. Ho made a distinction between education and instruction, and successfully demonstrated that the true meaning of education is, mil tho development of the mental or intellectual faculties alone, but a full and thorough development of all the facultiea and br- .m.a'm'.i .a gaus oi tne ooay tna mental, moral and physical combined.

In November, 1833, just thirty years after, the foregoing similar . phenomenon' were witnessed by th writer in the Union,-ot which he says: , ' ,t r- "The people were excited several years, within my recollection. I was a witness of the phenomenon of November 12th and 13th, 1833. I was a pilot of a steamboat at the .time; I came on watch at one o'clock on the morning of tho 13th; as I went into the pilot-house my partner remarked to ine that the stars were all falling. At that time it waa unusually light; so mucb so, that I could see objects on shore that I could not have seen with out it was a moonlight night. The shooting and darting of the stars increased until about four o'clock, when it waa sublimely grand, or awful, or both, or as some was awful frightful from that time until daylight. It appeared more like raining fire than stars fallinir. The passengers were notified of the phenomenon. They got up and came on deck. No one was alarmed. There was little said by any one, of consequence. Occasionally some person would call the attention of some other person to where the stars would rain the thickest. When daylight came they could be fe'en in the woontt when it was so light above the trees that they could not be seen." Last night was the thirtieth anniversary of tho phenomenon last described. D. M. Graham still in the County. D. M. Graham, who escaped from the Couuty Jail a short time ago, to avoid a second trial for rape upon a child at Healdsburg, was seen laat Sunday in the mountains adjacent to Windsor, by John Prewitt. When seen he was in company with Mr. Lewis, County Coroner. Graham attempted to delude Mr. Prewitt by telling him that his name was Moore, and Mr. Prewitt informs us that he conversed with the county oflicial, as if they understood each other perfectly well. It appears that Graham hud erected a house in a cafion in the monntain, near where he was seen, and on going there our -infiirmstut found everything us comfortable ami convenient as could be expected. He undoubtedly intended tu niuke it his residence for the winter. On Monday Mr. Prewitt informed Sheriff liowles of the circiiiustuilces, and an officer wus iinineJiutely dis patched in search of the escaped convict, but when the posse arrived at Graham's quarters they found the premises vacutid, (lie owner having skedaddled. It is quite remarkable that a man guilty of so lienions a crime, should be harbored in this community for three months or more without being detected. There is strong suspicion that the Lewis boys also have been stopping in this vicinity. Democrat. Thk Powder Mill Tunnel. The tunnel at the powder mill, near Santa Cruz, says the Pajaro Times, intended for the purpose of bring water through tho mountain, is progressing favorably. Already, 1,046 feet have been run, mostly through solid rock. The tunnel was begun on sides of tho niouutaiuop-poaitQ each other, wi'.h the intention of meeting in the center; 520 fect on the north side, have thus far been completed; which leaves 254 feet yet to finish. The average number of feet completed on this work per week, is twenty-five. AcpipEKT. Mr. Peter Teal, living in the upper part of Napa Valley, saya the Reporter, met with a serious misfor-tunejvhile running Chiuesaaugarxanu through his appears he . a t-tempted to get some cane out of the machine while clogged, and his left hand was caught and severely bruised and mangled, and the lijtle finger completely severed. After having it attended to, he commenced work again with his right hand, when a like accident ensued, resulting in cutting off the thumb and mangling his hand badly. PAtiT Discovert nkar Suisc Citt.
