CARSON CITY :
Friday.-May 26. 197X. PARIS. The dispatches yesterday to the Gold Hill News say that the fire is raging in nearly every street, and nearly all of the public buildings are in flames, having been soaked with petroleum by the insurgents. There is a heavy lxjmbardnient of Taris from the bar ricades. The insurgents are reported to be "still fighting like fiends" in portions of the city. The American and Spanish Embassies are destroyed, and the British Embassy damaged. Paris is enveloped in a dense smoke, and the streets smeared with blood. Six great fires are visible. The police are searching the city for the Com mune leaders. One dispatch says "the Versaillists are masters, and the city is in ashes." Another correspondent telegraphs from Versailles, last night, that Paris is being burnt to the ground. The mad and frenzied insurgents deliber ately tired the Louvre, Tuileries, Cour dos Comptes, Hotel de Ville, Jlinistry of Finance, churches, and every public building in the city. The conflagration is rapidly extending. This corres pondent tried to enter Paris, but found it impossible. In watching the fire he noticed a tremendous increase, and a third of the city, he says, will be burut before night. Another correspondent at Versailles telegraphs that the insurgents were leaten everywhere except at ISeile ville. Montrouge ami Antoine. The rhiefs are skedadling. Delescluze is a prisoner. Dombroski is a prisoner of the Prussians. The Ely Record claims forthe Pioche district a ranji second only to the I'omstock. "The Meadow Valley Tympany is considerably ahead of all the mines of Virginia and Gold Hill with but a single exception the (.'hol lar and the Raymond A Ely stands among those that rank fourth. The yield ot the Meadow Valley tor that period was 4."S,!-1S and that of the (hollar S-UO.2.15. During the same time the Raymond A Ely yielded SHS.i.177. Our bullion product lor the quarter amounts to almost a third of that produce by Virginia. For a camp just a year ol J and having many ob stacles to surmount, and being far removed from the railroad, the show ire is not so bad." THE BURST OFFERING OF HEVA SA SENATOR STEWART, RAIL ROADS, AMD PUBLIC LAUDS. At the last session of the Nevada Legislature a memorial was adopted by the Senate and Assembly praying Congress to extend the provisions of the Act of 1S50, granting swamp and overflowed lands to the States, so that Nevada might be placed on an equality with all the new Slates. In accordance with that petition Hon. C. W. Kendall brought the matter before the House of Representatives and probably would have succeeded in obtaining for this State the full benefit of the Act, but for the opposition developed in the United States Senate by at least one of the Senators chosen to repre sent this State. The extraordinary spectacle is presented of a Senator elected to watch over, protect and ad vocate the interests of this State stand ing up at his desk on the floor of the Senate and deliberately repudiating the will of his constituents, expressed in the most authorative form known to public affairs. In one branch of Congress we find a Iemocratic Repre sentative promptly attending to the memorial, and endeavoring to carry out the wishes of the people whom he was chosen to represent; while in the other branch another representative of the State wilfully disregards his im plied instructions,and refuses to advo cate the grant to his own State which heretofore he aided to extend toothers. What is the apology offered by the Senator for this course? His speech should any further grants be made to States for any purpose under which lands can be selected in large bodies. This would exclude all modes of alienation except under the homestead and pre emption laws and such other legislation as may be necessary to make those laws operative. The public lands must first be reached by steam communication be fore they can be sold under the pre-emption laws or given away under the home stead laws. I know of no mode of furnishing this communication but by railroads. I know of no way of insuring their construction in sparsely settled re gions but by ottering inducements in aid of private capital." Here all interests ara made subordi nate to the railroad interest. To reach these lands by railroad is made the first object tho primary purpose of legislation, to which everything else is to be sacrificed. "All other modes of alienation except the homestead and pre emption laws" should be swept away and swallowed up in the flood gates of "ottering inducements in aid of private capital." Granting away the 10th and 3Jth sections for educa tion in the States is "tyrANPEuiNQ the great publie domain;" donations for agricultural colleges grants in aid of internal improvements scrip in favor of half breed Indians in lieu of lands taken away from them swamp lands to the States and bounty land war rants for homeless soldiers all these are "squandering the great public do main!'' They should be cut off that "railroads may beollered inducements in aid of private capital." The Sena tor is as magnificent in his definitions as he is shameless in his abject prosti tution to incorporate power. If all other interests are to be sub jected to railroad interests the Gov- on land matters, of April 3d, furnishes eminent might as well be transferred us w ith all that he has to say in de-1 w ithout further ceremony to the Rail lense. That speech is nothing more ro;l,i Kings. If Senator Stewart can nor less than an elaborate plea lor I soe no interest w orth fostering but subsidizing railroads. In substance, i railroad interests lie has no business he says we have given away so much as tiie representative of a State, w hose public land to railroad corporations, rights and interests are merely mate and we expect to give away so much ' rial lor locomotive fuel. more, that we have nothing to give to the State of Nevada. This is one step in this land monopoly business for which the people of tiiis State were ARRIVALS AND DBPARTIRKS. Arrivals BT L. B. BTBR'S STAGE TtOH KINO.

Ux-Senator Millard Warner, of Ala-, lama, has been appointed and con tinued as Governor of New Mexico, and General Sigel as Collector of In ternal Revenue iu Xew York. igantic corporations built up and fos tered into powers superior to the laws, and utterly destructive of a Republi can form of this was being done at the special ex pense of the people ot Neva. la had not occurred to many. The state must lose several hundred thonsan 1 acres of its most valuable land, because. forsooth, the railroad wants them! If Mr. Stewart had entertained much re spect for his constituents he would have had those swamp lands granted to the State first, and then, if Nevada chose, in turn, to give them away to any railroad company it could have lone so. The Senator has been very generous with other people s prop erty. He has, hy virtue 01 ins posi tion, granted away rights which prop erly only belonged to the Legislature f the State. The amount thus far selected by the States and claimed as swamp and over flowed lands is m,45!,$' acres. The Senator savs: "v lien an me selections shall have bgeti made under ex isting laws the aggregate donation will be over TO.UOOJ K)0 acres." As cit izens of the country the people of Ne vada had some pecuniary interest in these seventy millions of acres. They have parted with that interest for t lie special benefit of those States to which these lands have been granted. Arc the people of this State so llush that they can allord to give to the wealthi est States of the Union their interests in the lands of the United States, and accept no such quota themselves? The State ought to pay its own debts tie fore it assists indirectly in paying the debts of its sister Status. Mr. Stewart classes this claim for equal and exact justice as '-a project for squandering the remainder of the great public domains.'' He declares, 'It is also very clear that no more swamp land giants should ba nude, nor should any fiirthc-rgraiits be made to States for any purpose under which lands can be solicited in large bodies." In his hungry desire to subsidize rail roads the Senator is willing to sacrifice all aids by grant of lands to schools, internal improvements, universities, agriculture, and even the soldiers who bore arms in defense of that domain Si.
