Thr town of Reno, in the State of Neva
da, and an important station on the Central
Pacific railroad, was almost entirely
wiped out by fire, Monday night. Of
the two thousand inhabitants nearly 1,500
were left houseless and homeless, and a
majority of the number penniless. , Fifteen
r twenty persons were killed. ,j
The Ameer of Afghanistan, Shore
Ali by name, the audacious fellow who
without consulting Great Britain, had the
presumption to choose Russia as a friend,
is rqwrtcd dead. Driven into exile by
England, abandoned by tho nation he had
befriended, be (lid the most sensible thing
left for him to.do, viz: luid quietly down
aud died. It is a grand, telling victory for
Orcat Britain one that calls for days of
feasting and general thanks-giving.
A Boston editor thinks it would be good
for her health if somebody would wb i.sper
in Tennessee's car that she is a swindler.
We don't think so; and if the Boston editor
would have striking proof of his mistake,
let him come south, and whisper the word
into tho ear of only one inhabitant of
Tennessee. By the time his scalp is patched
up and bo recovers his eyesight he'll think
it a most fortunate thing that ho experi
mented on one man, instead of a w hole State
full of them.
Who shall daro say, now, that Republics
are ungrateful? General Banks, to whose
Red river expedition we are indebted for
the salvation of the Union, accepts at the
lands of his grateful country, a District
MaHlialship; Hartranft who was the war
Governor of the Keystone commonwealth
has been made a post master; and Metcalfe,
the kinsman of our friend Judge Baker,
steps out of the balls of Legislation, where
he did uothing for cither his country or
constituents with bis accustomed ability,
and will hereafter say how much certain
sugars and other goods are worth that are
entered in tho custom house of St. Louis
And thus are our great men rewarded.
All the petitions aud efforts of the tem
perance workers of Illinois to bring about
the enactment of more stringent liquor
Jaws, promise to go for naught. Wo pre
dicted this result months before the meet
ing of the General Assembly; partly bo
cause public sentiment was not ripe for the
extreme measure suggested, and partly be
cause tho temperance law now in force,
prescribes penalties and remedies tor many
of the evils of intemperance, and it is but
rarely Indeed that even the most fanatieul
ot temperance people exhibit moral
courage cnaugh to inflict the one or apply
the other. While this state of things ex
istswhile existing laws stand as dead
letters on our statute, why add others.
In thr consideration of tho anti-Chinese
bill the so-called President was between
two very hot fires. The tea, silk and opium
merchant of the Eastern cities threatened
the Republican party with eternal annihi
lation if tho laid so-called President signed
tho bill; anil tho two millions of victims of
Chines labor, disease, vice and Hastiness,
on the Pacific coast, threatened the party
with defeat in 1US0 if the aforesaid "so-
called" didn't sign it. He finally determ
' ined to brave tho wrath of the Pacific
coasters. They were not bondholders,
didn't own much bank stock, and, from a
. political stand point were rather an uncer
tain set of fellows, anyhow. The "man
frotn01iio"cocluded1 therefore, that it were
better that, rather touch the purses of
few Boston and New York merchant prin
ces, that the tens of thousands of California
and Oregon laborers nud mechanics bo
brought, through idegi a ling Chincso com
petition, to tho ycrgo of starvation; and fin
ally to seek relief through nets of violence
and wholesale slaughter. The assertion
that none but the "hoodlums" of tho Paci
fic const join in tho imli-t'hineso clumor,
is false, lis U evidenced by the ncticn of
tho Sun Frnncisco board of trade; the ex
pression of business men. lawyers, divines
everybody except rnilrond owners,
owners of mines und manufactures
who profit by Chincso labor. Nine--teen
twentieths of the entire Caucasian
population of that section denounce the
presence of the Mongolian race as a blight
ing curse: and now that tho Republican
party stands between them und relief, let
the Republican party take tho consequence.
Tin-: closing scenes of Congress, Monday
night, were most disgraceful. Tho confu
sion would have disgraced a New Orleans
coek pit, und more than once during the
night tho sergeant-at-arms wa's called upon
to exhibit bis mace in order to prevent what
seriously threatened to become a resort to
violence. The attempt made to prevent a
vote on Springer's resolution impeaching
Consul Seward, caused tho chief excite
ment. The Democrats insisted and the
Republicans resisted, and it would lie un
fair to say that both were not equally to
blame. It was a scene peculiar to the
American Congress only a customary after
piece; but it serves to win for our Congress
men the designation of ruffians, and to re
flect most seriously upon the people who
aro responsible for their promotion to such

think "through the same quill," in this
matter. If politics arc ignored, Judge Ba
ker will be elected; because Democrats will
vote for him. If be is made a Republican
nominee lie will lose this support, aud fall
with his ticket. Democrats do not want a
political fight hundreds of them wish to be
left free from party trammels, that they
may support tho Judge ; but if his pretended
friends, throw down the political gauntlet,
they will undoubtedly pick it up.
COUNTY TREASURERS AND ASSES
SORS. The State Senate has passed a bill, and
it will probably receive the concurrence of
tho House, providing that County Treasur
crsshall bo elected every two years, and
shall not be eligible to re-election until the
expiration of two years next after the end
of the term for which they were elected..
Tho reason urged in support of this bill is,
that County Treasurers being the custodi
ans of the public money, should be com
pelled to close up their accounts at the end
of their term.
It strikes us that such a law
would be very objectionable. County
Truasurers tiro also County Assessors. At
the very time that they are in a condition
to do the public good service by virtue of
the knowledge they have acquired concern
ing the location und value of taxable prop
erty, they become ineligible, and nobody
profits by their superior information.
And tho reason assigned for the passage
of the bill, is no reason at all. It is mure
in the nature of an apology. County
Treasurers indemnify the county by filing
ample bonds; their system of book keep
ing is so plain and simple that the veriest
dunderhead of it Commissioner can under
stand it, and they make reports and submit
their accounts for inspection semi-annually.
The accounts are closed, in effect, and tho
balances brought forward, at the end of
every fiscal year. The County Board is
shown the Treasurer's receipts for every
dime that has been paid into the treasury;
the Treasurer shows his voucher for every
dime for which he asks a credit. Tho lat
ter deducted from the former will show
the amount of money in thrt treasury, and
if tho money is not there the Treasurer's
sureties can be mudo to put it thore.
During two years service, even in as small
a county as Alexander, no man can so l'ami
liarijso himself with taxable property of
the county as to make a just und equitable
assessment. Anybody will make a better
and more satisfactory assessment the second
year than he did the first. After tho second
year he would know every tract of land
and every town lot, every saw mill aud
business house in tho county, and would,
beauso of that knowledge, provo a valuable
officer to the people. But it is at this junct
ure that the solons at Springfield would
hustlo ,him out of office. If nobody but
scoundrels succeeded to the control of the
public funds, the proposed law would sup
ply a need; but, since the reverse of this
proposition is generally true, such a law is
not only uncalled for, but will prove an
obstacle to efficiency in a very im
portant branch of the public service.
A-Vis.voe RiVAi.UMi in Yeixowkks
that of a "heathen Chinee," if belonging
to one of our race, can scarcely be described
as attractive. But worse than this, it is tho
index of a disordered liver, of a liver that
needs arousing and regulating. Tim reme
dy is nt hand, prompt, efficacious. A course
of Ilostetter's Stomach Bitters will expel
tho misdirected bile from tho blood and
divert it into the proper channel, open the
bowels, remove the dyspeptic symptoms
which invariably accompany billiousness
and counteracts the rapidly developing
tendency to dangerous congestion of the
liver, which must always exist when the
skin and whites of tho eyes assume this
yellow hue. The pains through the right
lower ribs, side and shoulder blade,
tho nausea, furred state of the
tongue, and unpleasant breath which
indicate liver complaint, iu short all its
disagreeable con-commitants are soon reme
