From all jmrtsof tho country couierejwrti
of the fatal effects of the sun. Hundreds
of people have been stricken fatally,
and still the mercury continues torUe !u the
Tuk Centralia correspondent of the Chi
cngo Tribune, Icarus that the Supreme Court
will soon be petitioned in favor of Circuit
Judge John Dougherty, of Union, for the
vacancy Judge Baker's promotion will make
on the Appellate Bench of thia District.
Mr. Colfax, in a late speech made at Salt
Lake City, Utah, told the Mormons that
Brighaia Young had once told him polyg-
amy was prohibited by the Mormon Bible
and Book of Covenants and Discipline. His
assertion has created much excitement.
Senator Oolesby also intends to canvass
this district, and Capt. Thoinns may even
get a helping hand from Col. Iugersoll and
Mr. Storrs. But with all his efforts, Judge
Allen will defeat him. He cannot success
fully stand before the people with the judge
for his opponent.
A wife murder was committed in Chi
cago last Sunday. The murderer effected
his purpose by shooting his wife three times,
after which he made an attempt on his own
life that did not prove successful. He was
arrested. His name is Dennis Kennedy and
he is forty-eight years of age.
'"Herein lies the fatal objection to the
annexation of Mexico," says the Chicago
Tribune; but there is no good reason why we
snould not absorb the land of the Greasers.
An Ocean-bound Republic" may at this
time be only a dream, but it is nevertheless
a possibility of the future.
The Baltimore Sue, considered usually a
very reliable paper, is authority for the state
ment that Haves recentlv called Col. Mosebv
of guerilla fame, to the White House and
tendered him an office. This following in
the footsteps of Gen. Grant is not well re
ceived by the extreme radicals of Washing
ton. Whes the colored troops fight so nobly for
the Republicans what do they get in return ?
An occasinal trusteeship places of little
honor and no inonev. The estimable white
Republicans take the places that have uionev
in them, and give the colored rrxips nothing !
worth mentioning. But the colored troops
"The whole course of the Fraudulent Ad
ministration for more than a year past," says
the New York Sun, 'justifies the belief that
a war with Mexico has been fully deteimined
upon." We doubt the correctness of the Sun's
assertion; but if it should prove to be true
the South will applaud Mr. Hayes and sup
ply an army that will speedily crush the
army of Diaz.
TriE Catholic colonies iu the western
part of Minnesota are reported to be in a

The Cnrliondale Free Press says Gover
nor Cullom should appoint n man in the
place of Judge Baker on the Appellate
Imch. who can 1 elected at tho h!1s next
June. The Free Press has made u mistake.
The governor has nothing to do with the ap
pointment of the successor of Judge Baker
ou the Appellate Bench. This is done by
the Supreme Court, and everybody knows
that Judge Wall ought to be appointed in
place of J udge Baker.
Gen. Lotus, who has been a gallant sol
dier and a distinguished statesman, proposes
to help Capt. Thomas through deep waters
this fall, llu will canvass the district for
his favorite boy his interesting protege, to
whom lie gave nothing but kind words
when he had the ability to give good offices.
We shall turn looae upon him the gallant
Allen, and then if he gets out of tho diffi
culty with any reputation we are mista
ken In the ability of Joshua.
The Carbonbule Free Press was not
pleased with the speech made by Capt.
Thomas iu accepting the nomination of the
Cardondale convention, aud its jndment
j of tl,e captain's "little talk," as Ids friends
call it, agrees with that of everyjiuipartiul
man we have heard express an opinion ou
the subject. It was flat, stale auij unprofit
able. It was au attempt to unroll the banner
of tho bloody shirt, and it signally failed to
arouse any enthusiasm.
Mu. Postmaster McKeaio, of this city,
the distinguished gentleman who used to
control all ltepublicau conventions, com
posed pr'udpally of obedient negroes, much
to the disgust of Mr. Fisher, John P. Thillis
and others, has lost his power. lie cannot
get the colored troops to obey commands in
the old maimer. They are commencing to
ask for rations, and ho has none to give.
The postmaster is beginning toshw evi
dent signs of weariness, and will probably
retire at no distant day and leave las place
to the more sprightly Wright.
Gov. Tiiies is now a guest at a hotel at
Long Branch. A correspondent describes
hiuTas he walks "betw ee n the hotel and the !
ocean; his hands are behind his back and j
his promenade frcuiieutlv interrupted bv a
stop and a very brown study. He looks
better than eYer in the face and wears a
white hat with mourning crape, gray trous
ers and black coat. There is a decided im
provement u his color, form and style, yet
he appears solemn and some might say
unhappy. All agree that he is desirous if
not hopeful of a re-nomination next time
aud has ceased to repose any hopes in the
Potter investigation except as an agitator."
As impression prevails in Texas that we
shall be compelled to fight Mexico. It is
Mieved President Diaz will soon become
the aggressor aud attack Gen. Ord's troops,
and thus precipitate us into a war. We
have some doubt of this outcome of the diffi
culties now existing between our govern
ment and that of Mexico. President Hayes
has as his adviser in this matter Mr. Evarts
who is a man of words and not of deeds. It
is therefore a probability that we shall talk
about fighting until Messrs. Hayes and
Evarts fall into the seclusion of private life.
But there is a possibility the administration,
to attract public attention from the Potter
investigation and the rascalities by which
Mr. Hayes secured his office, may be as wil
ling to engage in war as Diaz. In this
event, we shall have a conflict, the result of
which cannot be doubtful. Such a war
would be a blessing to our country. We
should come out of it victorious with en
larged borders, and a "late war" to talk
about that would not excite sectional ani
mosities. For Capt. Thomas we entertain senti
ments of respect and kindness, and we
should always regret the fact if, in any way,
we injured his reputation or outraged his
feelings. But we owe to the public the
duty of exposing the captain's bad polities
and any facts in his record that would ren
der him unworthy the confidence of the
Eighteenth district. With his oolitics we
shall interest ourself hereafter, and at this
time be satisfied by briefly cailingatteution to
a charge made agaiut him by members of
his own party before he was nominated for
Congress. While doing this we desire to
express the hope that the captain can refute
the charge made by pre tended friends, the
truth of which the Sun has admitted by re
fusing to deny it. It is charged that Capt.
Thomas, acting as a lawyer, collected for Mr.
J. T. Thomas, of this city,about one hundred
and thirty dollars; that housed the money
for his own purtesf ; that he refused to pay
it to the mau he had collected it for until
he became a candidate for office, and then
paid the money under a threat of exposure,
Is this true? What has Capt. Thomas to
nay about it? What docs the Sun say? We
tender to tho captain our columns. We
promise the Sun to publish its denial it'
that paper shall make one. But wo wish
this charge out of the way, and wu there
fore call attention to it at this early jlay for
the second time. Ae cannot be put off
with silence. We must have an explanation
of the captain's connec tion with the Thomas
collection. For a lawyer who uses his
client's money without his client's consent
we have no good words, and do not wish to
be compelled, by c harges made by Republi
cans, to put Capt. Thomas, the Republican
candidate for Congress, on the list of such
attorneys. He should deny the charge
promptly; and then, with Judge Allen and
Capt. Thoinns as the opposing candidates,
we shall go through a canvass in which
politics will be discussed and not the per
sonal characters of the nominees.
Tim Onrbondalc Free Press, the home
organ ot Hon. W. J. Allen, seems to take
some pleasure iu throwing au occasional
newspaper brick-but at Mr. Oberly. Wheih
er it does this by direction of Mr. Allen or
on its own volition, we tare not advised; but
we are sure its slurs trre not justified by any
thing Mr. Oberly has done or left undone
iu the present canvass. In the last issue of
Mr. Allen's Free Press wo find tho follow

We understand the sarcasm of this para
graph, Mr. Allen knows that Mr. Obcrly
is not and lias not been a candidate for Coo;
gress; but Mr. Allen does not know what
may nevertheless be a fact that he could
not have had matters so nearly his own way
if Mr. Obcrly had been a seeker after Mr.
liar ell's seat. Mr. Allen is also informed
that Mr. (l'i ly does not expect to be a
candidate for governor. He knows the dis
position of Mr. Allen and the other manag
ing men of the part', who have not by the
way made it veiy victorious iu Illinois. He
knows the ground ou which he stands, He
knows whoso is the tip-toe step that ap
proaches from behind and whose is the hand
that stabs him while the kind voice asks:
-How is it with thee, brother?" Mr. OWrly
has had something to do with such men iu
the Democratic party, and asks unci expects
nothing from them. He is therefore a can

From the Pari Figaro.
Who is the richest man in the world is
no longer an enigma!
It was only tit that Paris should this year
nuinWr among her guests Mr. John Wil
litiiu Mackay, of Virginia City, United
States, and that its Exhibition should be
visited bv the most powerful representa
tive on record of the kingdom of gold and
silver. Born in Dublin in 133. Mr. Mack
ay went to America when quite a youth,
and was first employed in a large ship
building house in New York. Toward the
end of 1832, soon after the discovery of
gold, he aailedf'or California in a vessel
u l It oy his late employer, aim readied
there in the winter ot that vear.
Having it natural inclination for evervthiui;
connected with tie) mining, he iitittiedi'itelv
adopted it t.s a profession, ui-etiu'' with all
the hard-hip aud ups and downs that are
part aii't parcel ot its ways. ( mtiieliciiig
hi career in Sierra county. wh-re lie re
maitied several years, he at length made a
"rai-e." and stalled for Virginia Citv. Here
lis funds ran out, and he worked for some
time timlx-ring the Mexican mine at $4 a
lav. As a characteristic of the man, it is
stated tliat about this period Mr. Maekey
wns freeniTitlv saving that if he could only
get together 23,IMK' to make the declining
vt ars of his dear mother comfortable, his
greatest ambition in life would be obtained.
il-M t by various changes of fortune he
ultimately, in 1m!3, beciimo associated
witli Mr. T. M. Walker, and to this firm
was i.dded, iu lHi5, Messrs. Flood and
O'Urien. remaining so until lrto'H, when
Mr. Walker retiring. Mr. Fair replaced him.
The stupendous wealth of these four enter
prising men then became manifest. They
having secured tlio Hale ami orcTos, one
of the Jloiiitnza mines, were enabled to pro
cure others, finally purchasing tlio Consoli-
latiid iiginia ground tor ttliotu Su,0OO.
Further acquisitions of territory resulted in
in their obtaining that marvelous deposit ot
ore Known as tue voihsiock locie. Witli
their constantly increasing capital, aud the
active and incessant eflorts made
by Mr. Mcckiiy and his partners,
the wonderful Bonanza minis
were cventuilly opened to the astonished
world. Jlr. Mackay has three-eights ol
the profit derived from them, nnd yearly
adds to his overflowing exchequer the al
most fabulous sum ot (111,000.000 trancs.
This is calculated to bring him in exactly
123 trancs a minute, 7,300 mines au hour,
and 18O.U0O francs a ehiv. Little over 43
years of age., Mr. Mackay is still in the
inline ot lite, lias a liaudsoiitf, commanding
face, splendid physique, and fine presence,
and, whether among his miners, in the
society of the elite, or in tin" bosom of his
friends aud family, we view in the "Hoss''
of the "Big Bonanza" all those attributes
whic h go to make up the thorough man
and the country gcutlemnn.
