Yesterday morning shortly after 4 o'clock, Joseph Mora Moss, a well-known resident os Oakland, and one of California's most prominent and influential citizens, passed away from life, at his late residence, corner of Telegraph and Mos avenues, in this city. He has been suffering from a protracted illness. The age of Mr. Moss, at the time of his death was seventy -one years, eight months and twenty-one days. H was born in Philadelphia, his father being English and his mother an American. In the year 1850 he came to California, and for several years was associated with the banking house of Pioche & Bayerque. His home has been in this city for eighteen years, he being one of the first citizens of California to note and appreciate the beauties of Oakland as a place of residence. He was one of the projectors of the Oakland and San Francisco Railro -1, and Ferry Company, and later bec-.me interested in gas, water and ice companies across the bay and in this cij . He was also largely interested in the Russian Fur Company. For many years prior to his decease Mr. Moss was intimately connected with many institutions of learniog and charity, where his broad and comprehensive mind and warm heart were powers for the good of the young and needy. He was an influential member and President of the Board of Directors of the Deaf, Dumb and Blind Asylum, where Jiia loss is deeply felt among the afflicted in wh he took such a great interest. He was also a member of 'the oartl of Regents of the Universi o California and an active member of the Advisory Committee of that Institution, where his counsels were always heard and listened to with pleas ure and profit. Mr. Moss was a man of liberal views, strict integrity, great public spirit, and splendid financial ability. He always stood ready to alleviate the sufferings of the poor and needy. His life was one to be regarded as a model. His good deeds were numberless, and the sincere mourners of his decease are many. An autopsy was held this mornirjg by Dr. Selfridge of this city, , assisted by Doctors Brigham and Peace of San Francisco, which was performed at his own request. The immediate cause of death was found to be enlargement of the heart from dilation. The funeral will take place to-morrow at 10 a. m. from his late residence, and will be strictly private in accordance with his wishes. THROWN FROM A BUGGY- Two Well Known L&dirs Severely Injured by the Overthrowing ol a Huggy. On Saturday afternoon about three o'clock Mrs J. B. Wyman, wife of the proprietor of the Oakland Times and a lady friend, Mrs. James R. Adams who was visiting her, were riding on Poplar street between Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets where the spirited animal which Mrs. Wyman was driving became frightened at the appearance of a large tree which had been cut down and lies across the street, leaving a passage way for carriages of about ten feet in wicfth. As the horse passed the tree he made a sudden spring forward, and rushed violently forward, and the utmost efforts of the ladies to stop him were unavailing. He fiew up Poplar street to Eighteenth street, where he turned round, the bugtry struck the wooden curb on the edge of the street, was overturned, and the 1?-dies thrown out. George Sinters living on Kirkham street, who followed the buggy, stopped the horse as it was turning down that street. The ladies were picked up in an insensible condition, and conveyed to a house in the neighborhood, tenanted by a family of the name of Flynn. Medical aid was sent for, and Dr. Brown speedily arrive, and administrated to the injured ladies. Mrs. Wyman's injuries are of a very serious nature. She received a severe cut on the right side of the forehead, extending from the roots of the hair to the eyebrow; a long gash was made on her right shoulder in a downward direction; her face, on the right side is fearfully bruised, and there is a severe concussion of the brain. She was carried to her home on Clay street, where she lay in an unconcious condition until ten o'clock at night, at which time she revived and is oow expected to recover although the case is a very critical one. Mrs. Adams injuries arc not of so severe a character, and consists of a badly bruised forehead, side and hip, She will probably be well enough to be aDoct again in a few days. Dri Trembleyjis in attendance and at noon to-day both ladies were pronounced improving. FIRE AT WEST OAKLAND. . The Residence of James Quintan Twice In Jeopardy. About 11 o'clock on Saturday evening a fire was discovered at the residence of James Quinlan, No. 1420 Eleveuth street. The fire was under the house and no cause could be assigned for it. There was no one in the house at the time, Mrs. Quinlan being at Stanford's Hall, actively engaged in St. Patrick's Fair. The fire was put out by neighbors with buckets of water. After the fire Mr. Quinlan remained at home. At half past one o'clock another fire was discovered in the roof by officers Hynes ajid leeples, who immediately turned ' in the alarm. The department was promptly on hand and extinguished the flames without ranch damage to the property. An investigation was made yesterday by Chief Hill, and the conclusion arrived at was that the fire was the work of an incendiary. He found the carpet saturated with coal oil, and there was coal oil on some rags and clothing in a closet. The damage is estimated at $400. It is reported that the property is insured in the Union Company for $1,000. It was an opportune time for a fire, as the most of the people at the Point were at the Fair or the Masquerade. The Rifle Tournament Yesterday th Fall Tournament of the California Rifle Association was concluded at Shell Mound Park, when a series of brilliant scores were made. For the Governor's trophy Captain Robertson made a score of 47 that stood better than similar scores made hy Fred. Kuhnle and Howard Carr. Sergeant Nick V ill iams of the Light Cavalry made the best score (47) for the Diamor-1 Palace Medal, also for the "Pacific Life" Challenge Cop. Sergeant J. E. Klein won the subscription match, by the possible 25, and also made 48 out of the possible 50 at the Military Mid-range, winning the Dearborn MedaL The match for the Diamond Badge, between Lieut Henry H.

JOHN MULLEN- Seme Reminiscence mt the Dead Typo Batted by His Brethren-lanes to Bis Memory. The remains of John Mullen, a member of the New York Typographical Union, who died last week, were taken to San Francisco by a committee of printers. Although Mr. Mullen had not deposited his card, and was consequently not in regular membership, the members of the fraternity ever willing to extend a heli -ing hand, raised the necessary expenses and buried him in the plot of the Union at Lone Mountain Cemetery. A lar e number of gentlemen attended tLo uneral. Mr. Mullen worked in one or to offices in this city and was respected for his quiet and gentlemanly demeanor. A friend who has been long acquainted with him and well known in typographi cal circles, hands in the following: COMMUNICATION. Mr. Mullen was from the city of New York, and as we are informod, was a classmate, in one of the theological sem inaries ot that State, of the late John Nugent, editor and proprietor for many years of the old San Francisco I feral I the school-day recollections with whom Mr. Mullen delighted to revert to with sentiments ot enthusiastic pleasure and an almost boyish love. Though a modest and unpretentious man, Mr. Mullen aaa a keen observer of men and their ways, and seemed to catch "the manners living as they rise. " He was gifted w nn a ciear appreciation of human character; had been in every country on the globe in which the English tongue is spoken; and amongst his highest boasts, hen in the company of congenial friends, was, that in all his far-aay wanderings he had never failed to receive, on the part of his fellow countrymen, throughout the wide world, the right hand of fellowship. In coming to Oakland, (as he informed a friend a few weeks since) hesaid: "I have wan.lpred far in fait, all over that portion of the world which is worth living in; yes, and a great deal further. And, like one who has now reached the September of life, and become AWEARY WITH !truD;IN ALONd THE DKVIOI'S ROAD, I have concluded! to cast anchor in your beautifu city ot Oakland. Jt shall be my haven of rest; and here, beneath the congenial shelter of its hospitable retreats afar from the haunts of busy life I shall, in my old age, endeavor to find balmy rest and repose. My dearest wish is to be 8ared a few years longer that I may steal leisure enough from the everyday tedium of life, to leave behind me a random sketch of my own experiences in the different counties through which I! have passed among the disciples of Faust and Guttenberg. In these little excerpts I shall take the liberty of dedicating a few hints to the incoming members of the craft, touching the true characteristics and status of a practical printer all of which shall be especially adapted to those who shall come after me in the "Art preservative" on the Pacific coast. A member of the old San Francisco Typographical Union, and one who knew Mr. Mullen in better days, on hearing of his death contributes the following, dedicated to his old-time fellow-craftsman: HIC JACET. JOHN Ml'tLCS. His rraTe be where the willows weep O'er streams that wander by; Where nightshades bloom and ivies creep, And zephyrs scarcely sigh. His epitaph upon the sand Oblivion's hand will trace; And truant waves that wash the strand. Shall each kind word efface. t His task is done; his day is run; In peace the typo sleeps. His "take" unmeasured, lies unstrung Whilst friendship o'er him weeps. I T. L. R. UNIVERSITY FIELD DAY. I Extraordinary High Leap by McGil-llvray Fast Time Iby Hit ley.

He was a barkeeper in Ghirardelli's saloon, had been employed there a long time and was very popular with the habitues of the place. He was either discharged or about to be and this fact preyed upon his mind and made him somewhat despondent. In addition to this he had re cently heard of his father's demise.

John Sherman on Govern ment Finances. Tammany to be Shorn of Its Power. John W. Mackey and New York. Friends in SPECIAL TO THE TRIBUNE Rise In Stocks National Prosperity. I fucago, November 22d. A Triljune's New York seeial says: A broker says the heavy rise of stocks results from efforts ot nearly every heavy operator. Gould is buying lecauxe he recognizes the fact that lie will be able to get higher prices this week. He did not originally, however, anticipate any such rise as at the present, being a bear, and he will shortly squeeze the market by calling his lar&re outstanding loans. He, however, is a strong bull on the prosperity of the country. Few people appreciate the work ifoini on in trie southwest. xle will very soon have a round hundred millions in bonds on roads he is extending 'and going to build in that re. gion. He will secure connections with Atlantic roads, though (that generally is attended to already; and when those who want six per cent, for their money have faith enough in the prosperity of the country and Gould to trust it to him, he will go on and surprise the world by the extent of his schemes. This is where his time and money and energy are directed, aud he is desirous of seeing low prices for stocks that money may be,4eft free to flow into channels he has dug' for it. I think to-morrow will show how real this "bull" morement is. There will be a rush of the mors timid bulls to unload. If there is a sufficient number of outside orders, then we shall sustain rates, otherwise there will be a decline. Vanderbilt said yester day of the retorted alliance opposed to Gould of the New York system and Atchinson Road, "There's not a word of truth, not a word." Grant for Senator. The Star's Washington special says : Several Grant Senators and New York Republicans inadvertently admit that C'onkling intends presenting Grant's name for Kernan's successor in the Senate, and also intends having hini elected. For this purpose Grant lost his vote in Galena. Sherman on Finances. A Trihnnc's Washington specfal says : Two most important point- in Sec retary Sherman's forthcoming report are the recommendations in regard to the funding of a large a mount of bonds due the coming year, and the financial work needed in order to maintain specie payment in gold on a firm and lasting basis. In regard to the first it is understood the Secretary urges upon Congress the prompt passage of a law which will make it possible to begin preparations for this refunding at the earliest possible day. The expectation about the Treasury Department is that the Secretary will argue in favor of a long and a very full and clear review of what has been accomplished in the work of paying the war debt, refunding bonds and resinning specie payments may be looked for. It is believed that this exhibit, under the hand of the Secretary of the Treas ury, will go far toward preparing the way both at home and abroad, for floating a three per cent. bond. The Cold Wave. Whitk Plains, N. Y., November 22d. The Champlain canal is frozen over tb is morning. Ice about ten inches thick. Thirty cadet boats are frozen in letween here and Fort Ann and about forty are due from Port Henry and Canada to-night and to-morrow. Thermome ter 9 below zero at 2 a. m.

Chicago, November 22d. The Superior Court had before it this morning a case of curious complications. Some months ago William A. Sloan married a woman in Ohio, moved to Iowa and ol tained a di vorce through a Chicago divorce law yer, and upon the tame day married another woman in Iowa. The Courts of the latter State declared the divorce proceedings illegal, and the second marriage adulterous. To-day the Chicago Court held that the divorce was valid. According to the laws of Illinois, it is therefore illegal for Sloan to live with either of his wives, although he has children by both. He might, however, legally live with his Ohio wife in Iowa and with his Iowa wife in Illinois, but could not live with the Ohio wife in Illinois, or with the Iowa wife in Iowa. Mackay In New York. New York, November 22d. The World says: John W. Mackay and R. M.

Mackay will sail. for Europe Wednesday, to join his wife, who has been living in Paris for three years. The Clergy and the 'Pa salon Play" The ministers have carried the question of the PuMition Play into their pulpits. Rev. Halford preached upon the subject yesterday in Washington Square Methodist Church, and Rev. Mr. Crofts in Brooklyn, and Talmage announced that he should take it np the next Sunday morning. Political Hitch In Indiana. A Tribune's Cincinnati special says: Governor Williams' death causes a most sensational complexion in Indiana, and threatens to leave the State without a head, and prevent the election of a United States Senator. The law requires that before either the Governor or Lieutenant Governor can take their seats the two Houses must meet and be organized. The Senate i a tie, and while Gray was Lieutenant-Governor, he had the casting vote, as be had two years ago; but the death of Williams leaves the tie to be broken onlyjby a departure frm one side or the other. The Democrat have determined heretofore to organize the Senate, and will cling to their determination. If each side stands firm, the Senate cannot organize; and without it neither the Governor nor Lieutenant-Governor can take their teats; and at the same time the Constitution terminate the office of the acting Governor en the seosod Monday of January. If the two sides of the Senate lock horns an3 remain In that attitude, the Senate can be kept indefinitely (without a Governor or United States Senator to be elected to succeed Senator McDonald. It is claimed the United States Senator mnst be elected within a certain time, and if the time goes by, the Democrats say no legal election can be made by the present Leg' islature, and the next one they hope to make Democratic. Morey Forgery Developing-. Interesting disclosures are made of Had' ley's connection with the Morey forgery. It is now alleged that Wm. It. Barnum employed him to go to Maryland and to Lynn to procure the perjured testimony in snpport of the plot, and that he brought witness Lindsay O. O'Brien to this city; Ihe Tribune's Washington special says; A Democratic Senator reveals the impor tant fact J.hat Garfield was in Ohio the day the Morey letter was dated, and therefore could not have written it. This did not come out on the Morey trial., The records of the House will show this to be true. Failure of the Chicago Produce Br chaa g c. Chicago, November 22d. The public produce exchange, the largest institution of the kind in Chicago, was suspended shortly before 1 o'clock to-day, having been badly crippled by the recent heavy ad-vanoe in grain, provisions, cotton, aud stocks, all of which rose so rapidly today that there was a regular jam of Cull perators at the counters; This rise in all kinds of speculative articles has caught most of the bucket shops and several had already susiended. The Metropolitan also failed this morning, D. A. Loring, President of the Chicago Produce Exchange, says: "The concern has paid out over a quarter of a million of d 'liars within a few days. His dc-ijn is to settle a continuous business. The liabilities are not yet known; probably over a hundred thousand dollars. Shipwrecks on Lake Ontario. Toronto, November 22d. The gale yes terday was the most severe ever experi enced on Lake Ontario. The following disasters to shipping are reported : The schooners Guelph and Wave Crest are ashore at Frenchman's Bay. A schooner, sup posed to be Queen of the Lakes, is ashore near Scarboro Heights. Another schooner, name unknown, is reported ashore near Conocon. As far as known no lives are lost. Tammany to be Ousted. New York, November 221. Republican leaders in this city are anxious for proper representation of the party in the Board f Estimates and Expenditure which de termines the outlay of city departments; and a suggestion has leen made that Mayor Cooper should nominate William Dowd for Controller. If his confirmation bv the Aldermen could lie obtained it is believed Tammany's control of the city government would be broken. Blaine Not Afrreed.

The English Cabinet Deliberating Over the Irish Question. GREAT BRITAIN. Loxnoif, November 21d. The Times in a leader says: We need only repeat that while the Cabinet has been unable to agree in regard to the necessity of coercion in Ireland, that policy has not been definitely abandoned. The ministers continue to hope that violence and lawlessness in Ire land may abate. GERMAN Berlin, November 22d.
