NEW FORCE PUMP A new double acting suction force pump, the invention of a Stockton machinist, Mr. William D. HOOKER, was in use yesterday pumping the water out of the unfinished cistern at the SW corner of Fremont Square. The water 12 feet across and 16 feet deep was pumped out with ease in 3 hours, notwithstanding an imperfection in the casting which made the work more laborious than it would be with perfect apparatus. The pump will again be in use today at the cistern near Mr. PARKER's residence on Centre street.

SAN FRANCISCO DISPATCH, Mar. 29
-Corporal Owen MULLEN, of Company E, 2nd Infantry, went to his brother Joseph's house yesterday while in a state of intoxication. He was sitting in the kitchen with a child in his arms, when his pistol was discharged, instantly killing his sister-in-law, Mrs. MULLEN, who was walking on the porch outside. MULLEN says the pistol exploded accidentally.

[>New York and Indiana papers please copy.] [His funeral will take place tomorrow from the M.E. Church on Weber Avenue at 2 o'clock p.m. Friends are invited to attend without further notice.]
ARRESTED FOR BURGLARY Yesterday Deputy Sheriff Myers arrested John COLLINS on a warrant issued by Justice Baldwin, charging him with burglary in entering the stable of Andrew WOLF, forcibly breaking a lock and stealing a set of harness a few nights ago, belonging to T.W. NORTHEY. The man COLLINS is the same person whom officer McMahon arrested for having taken up his lodgings night before last in an out house on the premises of J.A. BROWNING. It appears that the accused expressed anxiety as to the safety of a carpet-bag or valise he had placed on the steamer Julia on Tuesday afternoon and which had been carried off without its owner. Myers, learning the fact, and looking at the man, thought the valise might be worth looking after and he did so. It returned on the Julia yesterday morning and was found to contain the harness above mentioned. Myers is certainly entitled to much credit for the manner in which he managed to recover the stolen property. COLLINS will be examined !
ASSAULT on PETER RILEY J. RITTBERG waived an examination before Justice Brush yesterday on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to do bodily harm to the person of Peter RILEY and gave bonds in the sum of $1000, to appear before the County Court.
SUICIDE The San Jose 'Courier,' March 28th, says: "John HART, who has been at work at the Ten Mile House in Santa Clara county, was arrested for stealing a pistol. While in charge of the officer he managed to take sufficient strychnine to "shuffle off his mortal coil," and died at 3 a.m. yesterday. He was a stranger and an intemperate man. The Coroner will hold an inquest today.
