The report of the Directors of the State Prison relative to the Branch Prison at Fol som was presented by Governor Perkins to the Senate yesterday.

DAILY RECORD-UNION. THE MINISTER AND HIS FIDDLE. In all ages and localities have exhtec: clergymen having traits of fine feeling, masterly attainments in their pulpit miU' istrations, and yet addicted to frequent touches of eccentricity of character. Pos sessing all the qualifications of a populai minister was the Rev. Mr. W., who tilled one of the secession pulpits in G., yet music seemed to be the ruling passion in his life. When iv a more than ordinary strain of eloquence, he would begin a long sentence ou the loweatnote of the gamut, and would in a seniicjuiver style run to the top of the s;ale, where, pausing a mo ment, he would descend the scale in the lowest and most marked mood : as if de scending a stair step by step, he weuld duntduwo word by word till l.c reached the starting potflt With his fine flexible voice and tine! y-tun»d musical ear, the effect was rather pleasant; and very noticeable by a stranger. Mr. W. was beloved by his con gregation, but his passion fir fidd...

the Feather itself is backed up and forced to run over into the basin at a point above, and where it has jet the elevation so to do. THE THREE DRAINAGE PROBLEMS OF THE VALLET. From what has been said it will be see _ that there are three main problems in the drainage of this valley. First— To insure a sufficient outfall from the foot of the lower valley flood region, that it may be -drained without flooding the delta islands. ■ ' Second— To insure a sufficient water carrying ca pacity from the foot of the upper valley through the lower valley flood region, in order that the former may be promptly drained without causing damage below ; and . •.■ m Third To provide drainage way sufficient to bring the waters of ordinary flood volume from the upper Sacramento, near Stony creek, through to the head of the lower region without overflowing the upper region of present floods. Certain circumstances complicate the first two problems, and make it necessary to consider them lor a moment as one...

THE DRAINAGE REPORT. foosTnn. Ed moM THIRD taok. ... , quired for the purpose than on the lower rivers, certainly if levees must be higher and stronger in one locality than in another, it seems reasonable that where the greatest flood- wave is presented it should be dealt with by means proportioned to the necessities of the case, if such are practicable, un less relief may be had without increasing the burden to be borne elsewhere. - <..-■• _..,„.„ This latter exception is seldom the case ; for in conducting flood-waters down a valley any accelera tion in rapidity of drainage in its upper divisions, by precipitating the flood below, increases the mo mentary volume theie, and necessitates more drain age way for its accommodation, else inundation will follow This is particularly the case where, as in the Sacramento valley, there are large tributaries joining the main stream, whose freshets arrive at the point of junction before the waters from its up per alleys get there.

THE DAILY RECORD-liKION. FISH FARMING. Report of the Commissioners of Fish eries of the State of California. . The State Fish Commissioners' report for the years 1878 and 1879 is an interesting docu ment. From the volume we make a synopsis of salient points. Sinc6 the organization of the Commission it has hatched and turned into the Sacramento river 13,150,000 young salmon, which, added to the natural supply, has made the fish as numerous in the river in season as at any time since so large an area of their spawning-beds was destroyed by the operations of mining. If the canning estab lishments are to increase, there must be placed at least 2,500,000 young salmon in the river annually, and to do this there must be an in creased appropriation, or else an abandon ment of all efforts at adding to the other good fish of the State and a devotement of all the appropriation to the propagation of salmon. IXFOBCISC THE LAW. The Commissioners say : "If there could be a faithful observance of t...
