CHEAP STORE – The new store at San Mateo, owned by H. Husing, is, we learn, doing a fine business, and the proprietor is justly proud of his success. His custom is extending even to the lower part of the Canada Raymundo where the low prices of his goods and his accommodating manner, are appreciated, and are fast spreading his business and gaining him many friends. This is the only store of any kind between Redwood City and San Francisco, that can afford to advertise. The others must be going down, to judge from this.
A GOOD JOB – The Francisquito bridge, on the county road, which was
fast becoming dangerous, was last week repaired and put in excellent order,
by H.S. Loveland, contractor. This work was very much needed, and
has been done in a very workmanlike manner, for which the contractor deserves

County of San Mateo et als., has been decided in favor of defendants, and
the injunction denied. It is understood that Mr. Parrott will appeal.
HAWES vs HOVIOUS – Injunction is made perpetual. This now amounts to nothing as the necessity for injunction no longer exists, and all now remaining to contend for is involved in the case of

COUNTY COURT. – In chambers, on Monday last, Hon. B.F. Fox, County Judge, heard the application of the Crystal Spring Water Company for certain waters in the western portion of San Mateo County (all of them, we believe.)

This was the only case before the court.

THE GRIST MILL – There is at last a fair prospect that the long-talked
of grist mill will soon be built in Redwood City. Two lots on the
west side of Redwood Creek, opposite Livingston’s warehouse have been purchased,
we are informed, for that purpose, and the building will shortly be commenced.
Mr. Morrison, by whom the mill will be built and owned, is a gentleman
whose enterprising spirit is highly commended by those who know him, and
we hope his success in the project he is about to undertake, will be equal
to his wishes in every respect.
Mr. BRODERICK’S WILL. – J.R. Malony writes as follows from New York to a friend in San Francisco: I am, at this moment, in receipt of a letter from Mr. Wilkes, saying that he shall probably be in New York by 10th May, and will sail for California on the 20th. The examination of Judge Phillips has abundantly satisfied Mr. McMahon, the attorney for the contestants, that the attempt to throw odium on the genuineness of the will entirely without cause.
LEG BROKE – John Regan, on Monday last, on the Whipple road, was kicked by his horse on the right leg, between the ankle and the knee, and the bones broken. He was taken to Dr. McClure’s office, and properly cared for.
THE CAUSE OF THE MASSACRE AT WILLIAMS’ STATION. – The Sacramento Union gives the following version of the origin of the Indian troubles in Washoe: - Osmer Darst, who resides at Gold Hill, near Virginia City, sends, under date of May 10th, to his partner, Mr. Harris, who lives on the Stockton toad, about ten miles from Sacramento, the following facts, which disclose, as he alleges, the whole truth as to the real cause of the late massacre at Williams’ Station, in Carson Valley. The number of white men burned differs slightly from the accounts first given, but these accounts also differ from each other. Osmer Darst states that an old Indian went to Williams’ house with a squaw, when four white men tied the buck Indian and then each committed an atrocious outrage upon the Indian woman. They then let the buck go. He afterwards came back with other Indians, and put a white woman, who was in the house, out of doors, and also three white men who had nothing to do with the outrage. They then bound the four white men who abused the squaw and burned them in the house. Mr. Darst gives the above facts to his partner, on the authority of the white woman who is now stopping at Silver City.
WEATHER – CROPS – BUSINESS. – The past week has been one of late spring weather unparalleled, since 1854. A great deal of rain has fallen, and in some parts of this county considerable damage has been done to the crops of hay and grain. The farmers who have commenced cutting hay have suffered severe loss, as the rain has fallen in sufficient quantities to entirely saturate all that has been cut. The growing grain has not been injured so much here as in the other farming districts, yet some of it, where growing thickest, has been somewhat beaten down and lodged. The greatest injury is to be apprehended from rust, which must soon attack the grain, if the rains continue.
ALAMEDA COUNTY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. – We acknowledge the receipt of
an invitation to attend the second annual exhibition by this Society.
What has become of the Pacific Agricultural Society? With a balance
in the treasury, and all the incentives which originated it, we can see
no good cause for the present inactivity of its members. A little
energy would revive it.
