OAKXiAKD DAlliY EYMINO TRlBlXNJSn TUESDAY, NOVJJAIBBR 23. 1880. AimctPATtp cuxsisas. Rr. G. S. Aaoett's Remarks isnst Kv-emlnflr at Ml Cnarea em the t HMdjr aad 8&nk j If ark. The First Baptist Church was crowded Sunday evening to listen to the discoarse ! of the pastor on th work of the Evangel, iata in Oakland daring the past week. After the usual devotional exercise Mr. Abbott announced as his text Jer. 29:13, " And ye shall seek ma, and And me, when ye hall search for me with all your heart." He said: " There are the best of reasons for anticipating excellent results from the -Work of Moody and Sankey in California because I. California is not so far astray from God as to fail to detect and to honor, acter in the Evangelists who have come to her. If there is anything the people of this State of ours hate, it is cant and hypocrisy in mere professional piety. Nor are they much to be censured for the severity of their handling of hollow, heartless Godliness. With not a little sham religion flaunted continually in their eyes, on the part of those who make a cloak of religion to serve the devil in, it is a matter of gratitude that any considerable decree of respect is saved to the servants and ordinances of the sanctuary-But here are men whose manifest sincerity and honesty of purpose blunts the edge of criticism; and they are received for all they are worth, with that respectful inference which men of good manners readily accord. If honesty of purpose, welded enthusiastic endeavor to honor God and save men, carries with anybody, let us believe it will with Califoriiians. They are intense haters of all fraud; often deceived as they are. They are also intense admirers of KEALISM, tfVEN TN' MATTERS OK RELIGION. The Evangelists mesting them at this point will do them good. Personal convictions are always powerful, especially when held in the interests of truth and right. II. Because those Evangelists are endorsed by the whole Christian world. To criticize either of them is to take issue with the good opinion that is universal, respecting them. It is a long distance towards victory won by them, to know that they are enthroned in the highest confidence of the Christian world. The verdict is not to be rendered in California, save by endorsement. They will command the attention of our people, a men who have wrought mightily for God in two hemispheres, and this ot itselt s an inspiration to similar successes on the Pacific coast. III. They are" men who are' mighty through God, and not in themselves. Moody can preach with great power, power surpassing the judgment ml many who look for literary finish and profundity of thought. He can preach plainly, pointedly, figuratively, as few men in the pulpit of Christendom. His is no flourish of platitudes that din on listless ear. He strikes hard blows. He thrusts home to the joints and the marrow. He 8. talks with dignity and rapidity, lhis is preaching of no mean type. Sankey is the singing preacher. He uses but little Organ a lesson to the everlasting orjran, thundering, yelling, screeching, heard in many of our sanctuaries he sings sweetly, melodiously, from the heart. How else should he sing? He is NOT A STAB FOR AN OPERA. He does not sacrifice his devotion to his art. He lifts his voice for God, not for man. Frosa. God comes his praise, and to him it returns. Endowed a both of ttiese men are, richly by nature, their strength is in Jehovah. All their force, speakine after the manner of men, is the force of the divinity that is in them. They are pious men. They are drenched in piety. As Baxter, they preach "As though they neer should preach again, As dying men to dying men." ' They carry with them the great power of God. It would be surprising indeed if souls should not be born again under their influence. IV. Their coming to this coast has been preceded by prayerfulness on the part of many children of God. There has been a seeking after God, to which the Messing of God is repeatedly promised in His Word: Dent. 4:29, 1 Chron. 28: 9, 2 Chron. 15:2, Jer.1 29: 13. For one I believe in God. I take Hhnv at His Word, and so I believe there are good things in store for us immediately. "And ye shall seek ma and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.'' These are a few of the indications of good in these days through which we are passing. Let our Gospel, therefore, be one of expectation, and not of dispair. There is a good deal of secularization of human thought about us, but over and above all, a good deal of serious meditation. Times of depression are helpful to this. The emptiness of earth is nowhere so apparent as where it has most abundance, even as a man can be most lonely in a crowded city. There are not a few good people on our coast, even though we concede many bad; and the good will save our cities, and honor our state. In this confidence let ns go to our work as men entrusted, not with forlorn hope, but with assured victory. ST. PATRICK'S FAIR. Another Crowded Houh Decided Sneeess. Stanford's Hall was thronged last evening by the interested patrons of the ' Charity Fair. The tables are well arranged and there are a thousand attractions for the willing purchaser, to say nothing of the charms of the lady solicitors. Stall No.. 1 is very attractive and is presided over by Mrs. Dr. Roche, Mrs. McAvoy and Mrs. Barry. No. 2 is presided over by Misses Susie Ely, Mary O'Brien, Mary Hanlan, Annie Howard, Mary Moooey and Nellie Fletcher, and is known as the Sunday School Booth. It is handsomely adorned and arranged, smilax being entwined in the folds of the lace curtains. Mrs. Roach, the Misses Sarah Noland, Annie Mathews, Kelne Halford, Mary Scott, Mary A. Mathews, Annie Roach and Louisa Finnigan preside over Table No. 3, which is tastefully arranged in white and blue and evergreen. Mrs. Maroney, Miss Maroney, Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Curtis' booth is No. 5, and resplendent in a bright array of decorated china and glassware. At No. 5, Mrs. Robinson, and Mrs. Jennings sit beneath a canopy of white and blue tulle, entwined and festooned with smilax and ivy. No. 6, at which Mrs. Davids, Miss Davids,f Miss Guillard, Mrs. Hemming and Mrs. L. Garvey preside, is arranged in pink and white. At No. 7 were noticed Miss Fitzgerald, . Mrs. Towers, Mrs. Rollins, Mrs: Sullivan, Mrs. Sicotte, Mrs. Martha and Mrs. Snigglewicb, Miss Flaherty and Miss Murphy. At No. 8 the display is fine, consisting of household wares, presided over by a bevy of fair ones who did not wish their names to appear. Space will not permit farther notice at present, bat the refreshment table and grab box are there, and the whole affair is decidedly well managed. Father Mentally is the moving spirit and keeps np the interest incessantly. The programme for the week is as follows: This evening there will be a comic troupe from San Francisco in conjunction with the Higgins brothers of this city; on Wednesday evening St. Peter's Zouaves will ' appear and ftive an exhibition drill, in which they will be pat through their maneuvers by a young lady, in costume, as Joan dT Arc; on Thursday St. Patrick's Cadets - will appear in an exhibition drill, and on Friday St. John's Cadets will be on hand. Idles of the Rain. This morning the sleepy drowsy wish-ing-another-nap Oak lander was surprised and delighted in listening "To the patter of the soft rain on the roof. Every tin- Sle on the shingle finds sn echo in the eart and a thousand dreamy fancies into busy being' start;" in fact every body; is delighted at the advent of the long j expected and much needed rain. The rancher is more than gratified and , the impecunious citizen who shivered aft the rise in coal feel as if he had gotten even with the ring, in the certainty of more moderate and warmer weather. Is is indeed a blessing and the people are thankful and happy, MASQUERADE PARTY i i Tle Tweaty-stxta Artalrersary of the Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Kttel PlMtaaUy Celebrated.

Eitel and bis charming wife. Shortly after eight o'clock the motly as semblage began to gather, and by ten o'clock the company of the unknown was at its height. Mutual mistakes, failure in recognition and doubtful compliments added to the merriment of the hour, and when the unmasking came the hilarity was simply immense. Music was furnish ad by Vail's band, and was excellent, and the dancers kept up the lively tread until an early hour, when all retired pleased with the happy hoars passed andwith hearty congratulations and good wishes tot their host and hostess.

The Cold Way Strikes Eastern Canals. the SPECIAL TO THE TRIBUNE Fall Synopsis of the Mineral Land Declsfoa. Washington, November 23d. Follow ing was among the business transacted in the Supreme Court tonlay, being a fuller report of the decision already dispatched: No. 637 Ivanhoe Mining Company, plain tiff in error, vs. the Keystone Consolidated Mining Company, in error to the Circuit Court of the United States for the Dis trict of California. The controversy in this case relates to title to a certain tract of mineral land in Amador county, Cali fornia, known as the eastern half ot section 36, upon which is situated the town of Amador. The land in dispute is now and has been for two years in the possession of the KeystoneJConsolidated Mining Company or its grantors, and is led by them under a United States patent. The Ivanhoe Mining Company claims to hold under a title from the State of California, f ounded upon a grant of land by Congress to that State for school purposes on March 3, 185S. AsJthe decision of the case affects the title to other large .tracts of mineral land included In grants made by Conifress to the State of California, counsel of that State and of the United States were allcwed to participate in the argument. The principal question at issue is whether the act .of Congress of March 3, 1853, which granted to the State of California sections 16 and 36, vested the title of such lands absolutely in the State without reference to their mineral or non-mineral character; or whether such lands were exempt from the operation of the School grant, from the very fact that they were mineral lands. This Court, after an elaborate review of the various acts of Congress bearing upon the case, including the Act of March 31, 1853, under which the State and plaintiff in error claim title, expresses the opinion that it waR the general 4am! settled policy of Congress, after the discovery of precious metals in California, to reserve from sale and pre-emption entry and to exempt from the operation of land grant acts, all land known to 1 mineral in its character, -and that there is no reason whatever to suspect that Congress intended to depart from this settled iolicy in the grant to the State of California of the section- now in controversy, It follows, therefore, from the findings of the Court below, on undisputed facts of the castr, that the land here in dispute being mineral land, and well known to be so when the surveys of it were made, did not pass to the State under the second section grant of J853. It is equally clear in the opinion of this Court that the land in controvmsy is exempted from the grant under the provisions of the 7th section of the Act of 1853, for the reason that it was occupied, improved and under cultivation at the time the surveys of it were made. Under such circumstances, the title of the State, in the opinion of this Court does not vest, but the alternative right to other land as indem nity, does. The settlement, building and cultivation, found as facts by the Circuit Court, brings the case within the provisions of the 7th section of the Act of 1853, and necessarily render void the title asserted under the State by the plaintiff in error. The judgment of the lower Court is affirmed with costs. Justice Miller delivered the opinien. Justice Field did not participate. The decision of the case affects many other large tracts of mineral land in California, including most of the mining claims of Bodie. Alaska and the Aleats. Chicago,. November 23d. The Inter-Ocean's suggestion is delicately given out at Washington. It might be well for the Government to get rid of Alaska by leasing it to the Commercial Comany. And it might be as well for the Government not to restore slavery under such a guise. In seal fur isles, that is where it practically has been done, and the miserable Aleuts permitted to sell what they have for sale only to the Commercial Company, and suffered to buy what they want from that company only, and are put in a condition to be as completely robbed of all the fruits of their labors as though they were under the slave driver's lash. A lease of the remainder of Alaskan Territory signifies extension merely of that disgraceful state of affairs. The Contemplated Seaatorlal Con test. The Inter Ocean says: " Should the Democratic programme of keeping out of his seat by a long-winded contest of the successor of General Garfield in the Senate, the Republican can promptly retaliate on on James G. Fair, the bonanza millionaire who lives in San Francisco, and who notoriously procured the election to the Senate from Nevada, by the purchase of the Legislature. Ob jection can properly be made to his being seated, on the ground that his election was procured by bribery. His case is one that would require fully s much debate before its settlement as could that of Garfield's successor, and so the plot to deprive the Republican side of one vote in the Senate, while the interminable debate was continued in the Ohio case, would be balked by exclusion through the same tac tics of, Fair, Democratic Senator. The Board Commissioners yesterday advanced the pay of employees in the various offices of Cook & Co. Average about ten per cent. Immigrants Arriving- ia New York. New York, November 23d.

Washington, Nov. 22L Great interest has been felt here in the result of the Commission sent to China to negotiate a treaty with that Government. The main and almost, sole object of the Commission was to have the troublesome question tof Chinese immigration settled in some way , satisfactory to the people of the West and of the Pacific Coast. It has been stated that the text of tin treaty has already arrived at Washington. This is not true. The State Department has received enough by telegraph, however, to indicate the nature of the treaty, Its text cannot reach this city under four or five weeks. The text of it will then be transmitted by the Depart-ment, under the seal of secrecy, to the Senate for ratification. Treaties, until ratified by the Senate, are regarded as mere agreements between the personal members of the governments interested, and for this rea son any publication of the exact text of the treaty in advance of official ratification is regarded a a great breach of etiquette. From official advices received at the State Department, the correspondent has been enabled to gain an exact idea of the new treaty. It is understood that this document does not change the status of American citizens in China, nor does it enter into THE COMMERCIAL FEATURES Covered by the Reed treaty of 1858. It is a modification of the Burlingame Treaty, and it is in accordance with Evart's policy restraining further immigration of the Chinese to this country, while at the same time not going to the extreme of sending those back who are already here. The original bill upon the subject of Chinese immigration was vetoed by the President on the 1st of March, 1875. The measure was objected to by him upon the ground that it was in conflict with the Burlingame Treaty, and that the law could not stand. Thin veto led to the appointment of the Commission. The Chinese Legation authorities were in this city at the time of the anti-Chinese agitation in Congress, and the L hinese equally anxious gration from its Government was to restrain emi- shores to this the same time, it country; but, at wanted the Chinese who were already in this country to be fairly treated. It is on account of this desire on the part of the Chinese Government to-keep its people at home thatrthe Commission sent to China has leen able to complete its work so rapidly. It is understood that the treaty-provides that no master of any vessel owned in whole or in part by a citizen of the United States, or any foreign country, shall take on lsiard from any port in the Chinese Empire, or other foreign irts, any number of Chinese passengers, male or female, in excess of the number of fifteen, to bring them within the jurisdiction of the United States. Any master of a vessel who violates this clause of the treaty shall be considered guilty of a misdemeanor, and subject to penalties to be provided for in the way of tine and imprisonment. It further stipulates that THE MASTER QF ANT VESSEL Arriving in the United States from any foreign place shall be required to furnish to the Collector of the district in which he arrives a separate list of all the Chinese passengers onloard his vessel. This list shall be sworn to, and any evasion or mis-misrepresentation under this stipulation shall also be considered a misdemeanor. The fines imposed upon the masters are to le considered liens upon their vessels. The provisions of the present statutes forbidding the im-jortation of coolies and women for immoral purposes are not affected by the treaty. No Consul or consular agent of the United States can yrant a certificate to any vessel leaving China for this country if she has on ltoard more than fifteen Chinese passengers. Of conrse it is explicitly stated that the limitations do not apply to persons officially connected with the Chinese Government, or to persons rescued from shipwreck. This treaty wm undoubtedly be ratified at an early-day by the Senate, and will be a measure to satisfy all but the most extreme of the anti-Chinese element on the Pacific Coast. The treaty itself is a modification of articles 5 and 6 of the Burlingame Treaty. Ever since the first advices concerning the treaty Were received at the State Department, there has been a perfect rain of telegraphic inquiries from the West to obtain some positive information upon the subject. The above disatch covers all information sought by these numerous interrogations. THEY ARE STILL RETICENT. Chicago, November 22d. The Inter-Ocean's Washington special says: It is thought the new Chinese treaty is like the bill vetoed by the President, limiting the arrival of Chinese on each ship to persons engaged in commercial business, not laborers. The officials of the State Department are still reticent. WATER FRONT SUITS. Heveral Demurrers Heard by Judge Crane. Saturday last, by consent of both parties, the suits of the Central Pacific Railroad Company vs. Tha City of Oakland, Nos. 5330 and 5331 were called in Department No. 1, Superior Court, Judge Crane presiding. The city had interposed demurrers. The suits are brought to quiet title to the right of way of the Railroad Company through this city. After extended arguments both demurrers were sustained, and leave was given plaintiffs to amend their complaint within twenty days. The suit of the City of Oakland vs. Oakland Water Front Company, Central Pacific Railroad Company, H. W. Carpentier, Leland Stanford, Samuel Merritt and other defendants was also called. Demurrers had been entered by the city to the separate answer filed by Samuel Merritt; also, to the answer of Huntington, Hopkins, Stanford and Crocker; and of the Oakland Water Front Company in all four demurrers. The demurrer to the answer of Samuel Merritt was withdrawn and continued to some future day; the remaining demurrers were, after argument, overruled by the Conrt. Thus the day's proceedings were concluded by two demurrers being decided in favor of the city of Oakland, and three in favor of the Railroad and Water Front Companies. In Memoriam. To our deepest sorrow we have learned of the death of J. Mora Moss, who has, from its founding, been intimately connected with the University. Fully recognizing, as we do, the loss which society at large has sustained in his decease, it is yet for us, as students of the University, to lament especially the loss to the cause of education. He was among the prominent members of our Board of Regents, and labored ceaselessly for the advancement of our educational and financial interests. Not only as an officer has he shown his interest, but as a private individual be has ever been ready to contribute to our needs, being among those o found our annual scholarship medal, as well as being a generous contributor to our Library, Museum and Art Gallery. We sincerely sympathize with the Board of Regents in their loss of a true friend and and active fellow-worker, and express our feeling of deepest condolence with his family in this their deep bereavement.

The acting Governor of Cape Colony says that no effective check is yet made to the outbreak. The Secretary of the anti-slavery society writes that there is little hope that war between Egypt and Abyssinia can be long averted. There is news from undoubted authority that orders have been issued from Cairo to drive back the Abyssinians by force. Two thousand troops at Ker-nan and a battalion have been sent to Saubit. It is stated that 16,000 soldiers left Cairo. A German missionary in Abyssinia states that the King is convinced that Egypt intends to attack him, and has given orders that all Mussulmen must leave the country ore baptized. FRANCE.

Bacon, et al., which has been hanging in the Courts fer years, came to a decision yesterday in the San Francisco Superior Court, when Judge Sullivan decided in favor of the plaintiff. The action was brought by R. E. Cole and E. P. Flint, and the personal representatives of Robert B. Swain and 'James P. Flint, to recover from the defendant H.B. Bacon, the sum of $67,433 33, being four-twelfths of the sum $202,300, which it is claimed Bacon withheld from the other parties to the action on a sale of certain railway interests which he negotiated as their agent. The property sold was the franchise of a railroad known as the Terminal Central Pacific, extending from Oakland along past Berkeley, to a spot opposite Vallejo. Bacou sold this franchise to Leland Stanford. Judge Sullivan in concluding his opinion said: "What is the measure of defendant Bacon's accountability ? I think the accountability is limited to the amount of his profits, or in other words that he is to be allowed for the $35,000 paid to W. B. Hyde for his services in the transaction. . Deducting S35.000 from $202,300, withheld, leaves to be accounted for $167,300. Four-twelfths of that amount, which I find to be the proportion of the sum due plaintiffs, is $55,766 66, for which sum plaintiffs will have judgment against defendant Bacon, with interest from April 14, 1871.
