Saturday: For North onkCalifornia—Light rains, with snow in the mountains, followed by luir weather; south erly, ahifling to westerly, winds; cooler in the Sacramento Valley and warmer at Fresno. RELIGIOUS WORK IN SACRAMENTO.

OUT OF MISCHIEF FOR A TIME. "Justice" Lovejoy Sent to the Folsom Penitentiary. *Ie Considers Himself Tery Lucky— Something About Ills Career, and His Election. "I'm in big luck. The new Judge is a dandy. I expected to get about ten years." Thomas Lovejoy, the whilom "Justice" of Mississippi Township, laughed joy ously as he made these remarks to Dep uty Sheriff Shepherd yesterday—the two being on their way from tho Superior Court to the County Jail. Lovejoy, it will be remembered, was convicted last week of grand larceny, be fore Judge Catlin. Judge Grant of Yolo occupied Judge Catlin's place yesterday, and when Lovejoy was brought up for sentence, he let him off with two years at Folsom. A BAD MAN.

ALMOST PERFECT BALL. A Rarely Good Game Between Sacra mento and San Francisco, Tho Senators Get Away With It by a Small Majority—Another Contest To-day. Those who failed to see yesterday's ball game, between the Saeramentos and the San Franeiscos, missed the best exhibi tion of ball playing that has been given in this city since tho season opened. It was a quick, "gingerly" game of ball, characterized by sharp hitting and prompt fielding, and the entire contest was over in an hour and twenty-five minutes after it commenced. ■fhere was no lagging, and the pitchers did not find it necessary to straighten out the kink 9in their arms by throwing the ball around the field at the commence ment of each inning. Tho game was played with more dash than any hereto fore seen in this city, and the audience did not fail to notice the prompt work of the players. And Sacramento won the game, that "was what pleased the majority of the spectators more than anything else. Hoover had charge of the home...

In 1ST—, a short time previous to the tragic death of the late Czar of Russia, one of tho most distingoished men of that empire was Pr ince Michel P , whose illustrious fhmily name the writer, for good reasons, refrains from mention ing. During a visit to Paris shortly after the war he had mot at a reception given tho Princess Liso, that magnificent daughter of General Contremont, whom the Parisian world, arising phoenix-like from its ashes, already worshiped under the name of "fa belle Madeleine.** a niai velously beautiful girl, whoso poverty was as marked as her beauty.

The Church Eclectic (P. E.) says: "Wo judge that Mr. John Fi«ko does not wholly reject anthropomorphism in re ligious philosophy. I f the idea of person ality, objective to creation as well as Im manent, is 'anthropomorphic,' then it only confirms the dogma that man must have been made in the image of his Maker." The Boston OongregoHonalist of April 2d says: "Last week came Good Friday. This week on Thursday is Fast Day. Out of respect to v time-honored custom and o the official proclamation some churches will be opened and some people will at tend. But most of those who wished to fast did so last Friday, and do not wish to repi a! the act so soon. They believe that they had better reason to fast then than to-day.
