Messrs. Barry & Patten collected over a hundred dollars yesterday, at their saloon in Montgomery street, for the sufferers by the explosion on the steamer Washoe. It will be forwarded to the officers of the Howard Association at Sacramento. An earnest and extended movement in this direction would produce enough money in a single day to secure to those poor flayed and mangled creatures every comfort and attention they may stand in need of, and it is proper that Sacramento should be liberally assisted in her humane work of ministering to their wants. Who will set the ball in motion? We have seen twenty thousand dollars collected in a short time in the noble little city of Memphis, Tennessee, for a similar purpose, years ago. If money is wanted by the unfortunates now suffering at Sacramento, San Francisco will respond promptly and with a will.
