This morning at half past ten o'clock. the Board of Health visited the Jute Mills to make an inspection of the Chinamen and to take measures for the public safety. The Boss China- mn told the Health Officer that the men who had been vaccinated, and it had not taken, feared revaccination and " were reluctant to come out. The Doctor said they most come and be inspected. At the call of the boss about 100 came out. With a few exceptions, the vaccination . on these had been successful. The rest refused to come, being influenced by THE RINGLEADERS, Who urged them not to appear. The boss endeavored to persuade them but they remained mutinous. He suggested sending for policemen, and the Health Officer sent to Capt. Fletcher to come with six men, in the meantime called in the policemen on duty and substituted citizens in their places. Soon one of the officers came but the force was not sufficient. Upon attempting to bring them out, the Chinamen set up a fearful yell like the barking of a thousand dogs, and threatened to shoot. The Health Officer then sent to the Mayor for a. force of men sufficient to quell the disturbance. Soon after SIX POLICE OFFICERS Arrived on the scene and charged upon the rebellious heathens, compelling them to come out and stand inspection. The whole crowd was then examined. It was (onnd that from 80 to 90 per cent, of the vaccinations had taken. The remainder were re-vaccinated. Every bunk was opened. Several were found locked and were immediately broken open. These contained four or five men, but none of them were sick. It wss found their vaccination had not taken and they were simply hiding from fear. They were re-vaccinated. There are no new ta:es,at the Mills. There are thr.ee cases of small-pox, all of which are improving. One man is sick with f a-ne other disease. The condition of the establishment is pronounced as good it can be under the circura- stances. - OAKLAND BREVITIES. Dime Social to-night at the First Methodist Church parlors.

A reply to the arguments and assertions below will be published fo-morrow 44 look od4." Editor Tribune About one hundred and fifty years ago the death-dealing practice of inoculating with the virus di rectly from a small-pox patient, as a preventive measure was Inaugurated in Europe. The ravages of this terrible practice brought it under the ban of the law in 60 years. Then its twin horror. 4 'vaccination'' (the opera tion of inoculating with virus taken from cows infected with the pox; instead of that taken from small-pox patients) was lntro- dncel-fav Dr. Jenner. lo-day this beastly practice is carnea . . . . .... on in many countries wita tne sanction, and at ths expense of the government. Why do physicians 1 support and recommend this hellish jcustom? They will tell us, I dare say, that mititrates the character of a loath some disease. But the medical profession is divided on thu point, and the evidence is voluminous, showing that vaccination is not only not a preventative of small-pox, but propagates A VARIETY OF DISEASES More fatal than small-pox, and lessons the power of the system to keep the disease on the surface. Scarlet fever, ; croup, dipth-theria, typhoid fever, and syphillis, are named as tequelte of vaccination, most of which diseases had been unknown before its introduction. It is said that the abdonti nal typhus, upon post mortem examina tion, shows eruptions in the intestines similar to those of small-poxJ showing the typhus to be nothing but intestinal small pox. Any one of the above mentioned dis eases causes more deaths in any year than small-pox itself. Aside from these facts, the contemplation of so disgusting a prac tice as that of impregnating the Dlood of innocent children with a deadly virus, is sufficient to condemn it in the eyes of all candid persons. As if our children will not nave enough to contend, with in life battle for existence, we must, forsooth, handicap them with the seeds of A LOTHKSOJIK ArTECTION Possibly of many fatal diseases. If in oculation be good for the ! prevention of small-pox. why not for scarlet fever, measles, typhoid fever, and syphillis- What is "genuine vaccine?' It is infec- tious matter of a corrosive character, which produces on the sexual organs of the cow. inflammation and suppuration. It is now believed that cow-pox does not originate with the cow, but is probably communicated to it by the infected hand of the milker; for where is there a ease on record of a bull or ox having the pox. Dr. Mitchell, and numerous others, pro tested as follows in the English Parliament about twenty years ago: "We protest against the transplantation of an animal virus taken from a diseased brute into the blood of our children; the operation is nauseating, barbarous and unnatural. It is our opinion that the purity of the blood is the supremo basis of our well-reing. but it is made impure, and becomes the source of diseases when it is mixed with this beastly poison. It is asserted that the animal virus, when mixed with the pox-poison in the blood, destroys the latter, or that both destroy themselves mutually. We cannot believe this assertion, because it is not only irrational, but because it contradicts all our knowledge of the influence of matter upon matter, when it pretends that in consequence of the mixture of two corrupt animal substances, the newly gained product becomes pure and innocuous. "Even if we assume that this new product did possess neither the characteristics of cow-pox nor those of small-pox, it being another kind of corrupt matter must necessarily have a corrupting and diseasing influence." Again, I say, look out, and ponder well before youlend jourself a party in this outrage upon the innocents. Roscoe L. Eameh. Oakland, August 20th, 1880. POLICE COURT. Judge Yule presiding. Cases disposed of August 20th : Fritz Fingledie, arrested by officers Hod gkin8 and citizen Levy on tbe charge of petit larceny, pleaded noguilty, and the case was set for trial Autfuat 23d. P. W; Martin, arrested by officer McLaughlin, pleaded not guilty, and the case was: set for August 2oth. Charles Carlton, a drunk, arrested by officers Golden and Wright, withdrew his plea of not guilty, pleaded guilty and was fined $6 or three days. The case of William Stokes, the architect of the Hall of Records, on the charge of perjury, was argued before the Court on questions of law, and continued for trial to September 3d. A False Alarm.' An active citizen whose greatest aim is to conserve the public interest, while visiting John Terney on the night of his accident, noticed a man standing in an alley-way at Eleveath and Washington streets with his hand on a window blind. Supposing him to be a burglar endeavoring to effect an entrance upon the premises, the citizen ran about a block to notify Officer Lnfkin, who wasl taking in a drunk. The officer left his prisoner in the hands of another responsible citizen, and went after Sergeant Chase to assist him in the capture. They; quickly and quietly approached the spot by different directions to surprise ,and capture the supposed burglar. fter searching around the building and yard for some time, a man with a candle appeared at the back door and inquired as to the csuse of the intrusion. The! officer replied they were hunting a burglar, and asked him if he had seen or heard of one. He said "No." He had been near that window himself a (little while ago, but he was attending to his own business and didn't calculate he would break into his own house. The officers were satisfied and left, but the citizen who gave the alarm had departed in the earlier stages of the conversation. ! Wall Dressed Skipper. A man not arrayed in the most fash iooable style, dropped into lone of our popular clothing establishments yesterday and selected a fine suit of clothing. It took some time to please him, and longer to get the exact fit. After he was fully dressed to the satisfaction of the salesman and himself, he loitered to the neighborhood of the desk where settle, ments are made, and said hei would step into the yard a moment. He stepped, and when the moment had ran into sev eral of the same length, it was discovered that . he had stepped over the back fence and departed. He has not been heard of since. An inventory of the old clothes left behind fell far below satisfying the merchant for his loss. Breast CsmS TJpem th Wmtet KetaraaxI IsuatiUUIy.

Nellie Holbrook .to Stamp New York. Sara Bamhardt's Wardrobe En route to America. NEXT KNIGHTS' TEMPLAR CONCLAVE TO BE HELD IN SAN FRANCISCO- SPECIAL TO THE TRIBUNE Cblsa'i New Departure. Xsw York, August 20th. The Bulletin learns from a steamship Captain, long in the Chinese trade and recently arrived from a Chinese port, that a steamship line to California lias long been a pet scheme of the China Merchant Company, but thinks that they cannot run a line cheaper than the Pacific Mail. The Japanese line to Hongkong has failed to sustain itself, and is supported by Government subsidy. New York, August 20th.- -The Sun, to-day, on China's new departure, says: In view of the progress which we see has been attained two years ago, the present action of the Chinese seems intelligible enough. If native merchants can save money by forwarding goods under their own flag to Tokio and Ronzoon, why should they not go further and send their ships serosa the Pacific to Sau Francisco or throueh the Suez Canal to Marseilles and London? Their recent experience in the carrying trade along more than three thousand miles ot the coast of Asia has demonstrated the perfect feasibility of their transporting a large part of their owu teas and silks to foreign countries in vessels owned and op erated by native capitalists. Undoubtedly the advent of the Chinese in the field of trans-oceanic transport will result in a signal lowering of freights, but we do not imagine that foreign consumers of Chinese staples will make any complaint on that score. Republican Speakers for the Sowtta. Washington, August 20th. The BeLub- lican Committee having been asked to send prominent speakers into some of the Southern States, it is understood that invitations have been extended to popular colored orators of the North to visit the Southern States and persuade their brethren not to vote the Democratic ticket, but to main tain their fealty to the Republican party. Congressman Aekxlen of lonlslana. It was generally understood at the close of the recent session of Congress that the Democrats had whitewashed Representative Acklen of Louisiana, on the condition that he would retire to private life and not seek a renomination. ' Now reports are brought from Louisiana that there are indications that Acklen will be returned to Congress. It is said he made so much trouble about the nomination of another man that the latter consented to refer the matter to another convention. Acklen is wealthy, and it is reported that he has been at work so successfully that the second convention will be under his control. SaraBtrabaidCi Wardnbf. Although ths wardrobe of Sara Bern hardt has not yet arrived in this country, the question of duties on her forty-seven dresses has already been considered at the Treasury Department. Exemptions are made when theatrical costumes are brought over which are known to be a part of the instruments in the player's possession, but in the case of Bernhardt, are no more ex empt from the payment of duty than those made for Americans who visit Paris and reserve the first wearing until they reach this country.

Extensive preparations are being made at the many wine cellars in this valley to care for the immense crop of grapes now approaching maturity. At several of the large cellars steam power will be introduced to elavate and crush the grapes, etc.,. thus greatly facilitating the process of wine- making. Prices are higher than ever be fore, ranging from twenty to thirty dollars der ton. Nearly all the crop that is for sale has been bought up. A Swindling Game. Napa, August 20th. -Charles T.

Editor Tribune: While it is very de sirable that the outstanding indebtedness of Alameda county should ba refunded at a lesi rate of interest than that which we are now paying, yet it is no less desirable that the proceedings to accomplish that end should Le legal in all respects. Parties interested who have examined into the matter are of the opinion that the steps thus far taken by the Board of Supervisors towards the sale of county bonds to , refund the outstanding indebtedness of the county, have been ill-advised, and that they will eventually be ascertained to have been illegal. What would be the effect of such a decision? Would not the bonds so sold be worthless? The advertisement for the sale of the bonds conveys to the public the assumption that the proceeding (the sale of the bonds) is to be done under and pursuant to an Act "To fund or refund the outstanding indebtedness, "as per Section 4046, Political Code of the State of California." Now, there is no Act with such a title. The sale is really under an Act passed by the last Legislature, and known as the Felton or County Government- Bill. There are serious Questions as to the constitutionality otthat Bill. A number of eminent attorneys . . . . 1 1 . L.'i-. do not nesitaie to aectare it unoiusvitu-tional.

Querist. Oakxaxd, August 20, 188a Positive Sonlnl. Editor T bisons: In your account of the fire on San Pablo avenue and Thirty- sixth street it is stated that the fire was extinguished by Hose Company No. 2. The fact is that it was extinguished by myself with a single bucket of water before any one else had got ready. Several of the neighbors aided me by drawing and handing water even after the fire was out. Not a drop was turned on by any portion of the Fire Department, as I had the fire out myself. The assertion that Chief Hill placed me under arrest for insolent language is also erroneous, lie made a threat but cooled down when I explained that I did not know his official position.

The floor is of asphaltum and the walls of brick, whitewashed. The furniture at present consists of four bedsteads with straw and pulu mattrasses on each, and a cooking stove. When properly furnished it will be quite comfortable. It is lighted by gas, and has a wash-room and closets attached. Mr. William T. Hurll is the steward in charge, and is actively engaged in cleaning and arranging the room. Not Open to Argament. The testimony of the "Sunday Herald, " Rochester, Jt. Y., is taken from their columns and is to the effect "that WARNER'S SAFE REMEDIES are a positive cure for disabilities for which they are specifics, there is no disputing; neither is there the 'Ghost' of a chance to call into being a negative to so positive an operation."

There are however, certain localities which possess, to a greater degree than others, the elements essential to the production of suierior wines. Among the most favored in the Red Mountain district, is Stanislaus county. Situated in the foot-hills, with soil of volcanic origin, with a dry and fervid atmosphere, the development of the grape is perfect, and the wine product therefrom delicious. Tire Red Mountain Port was awarded the premium as the best California port wine at the Mechanics Institute Exhibition in San Fraocisco. It is par txedltnct the wine for medicinal use.

PALMER A CO., whose principal depot is at 302 Davis street, San Francisco, recognizing the demand existing in Oakland for a place at which to purchase pure wines by the quantity, have opened a house at 474 Eleventh street. The choicest and oldest of the Red Mountain vineyard wines will be sold by the gallon, case or cask.
