THE DAILY APPEAL
H. i?. Jtfighels ::::::::::: : Editor. TBtenrastajr IfaratMC. Dec. S. 1H TEE SCHOOL BEHEFIT. 5a manifestation could be more prat- i ifjing and commendable than tbe ready I zeal and heartiness with wbirh tbe citi zens of Carson bare entered into the project for the benefit of onr public school. It most be confessed that from lack of a unity of conviction as to tbe best manner of procedure, or from some other came, there has prevailed what seemed like a sense of apathy concern ing this most vital matter, during the past to or three years ; bnt the cor dial ananitnity with which citizens of very degree bare taken part in for warding; tbe schema developed by the School Directors, is a pleasing proof that the canse of Education is still cherished among; tis people as a thing; f the very Erst and most exacting in portance. It is a noteworthy fact that there is more real thrift aad comfort giving prosperity in Carson at present than have been enjoyed here at an; time since the town became a perma nent place of residence ; and the judi cious liberality wbirh has characterized he movement in question is an indica tion of the prevailing feelinv of being; ' settled,' which teelinp, above all than is the most conducive to that state of things which is in tbe largest degrea healthful and promising in a aewly peopled country like this. Many whe came here, invited by tbe prospects, real or imaginary, of speedy gains, have outlived the disappointment of not real ising tbeir dreams of " flush times," aad have settled down into that steady aad contented habit which is certain to bring a large measure of prosperity and independence, if it does fail to insnre its possessors tba wealth which tbey had hoped ta achieve by quick aad easy Strides. In tba meantime, the rising generation, the children of these well te4o pioneers, have steadily increased in numbers ; and, growiog with the healthful and vigorous growth which is vouchsafed to the natives of this vivi fying climate, have reached a period in lifo "plastic still, and warm" when their saiads are ripe for that culture which, paramount to everything else, is ended to It them for tbe achievement f that glorious future which , none may dnobt, is in store for this rich and grow ing State. Carson, wo feel assured, is destined to bo the Capitol of Nevada for many years to coma, and tba location of other imfortaat public institntions. When tho wealth of tbe Stato shall bo mere folly developed and its infinite resources are bronght into employment, colleges and other liberal institntions will be reared here, and hero will center much if tho learning nnd refinement which such inducements never fail to bring together. Tba boys and girls who are growing np nmong us should bo pre pared to appreciate and take advantage of these poesible benefits. It will bo the fault of those of as who are respon iblo for tbe presence here of those chil dren if tbey arc not duly fitted for the future. And it is apon such artificial advantages as may be devised and erected hero that we mnst rely for tbe augmentation of onr population by de sirable aad permanent residents. The party which is to take place to night is tho joint effort of onr citizens to aid a most praiseworthy plan adopted by the Board of School Directors to raise funds for the purchase of a certain piece of property which is absolutely necessary to tbe extension, in an indis peesible direction and degree, of the present limits of tba District School premise. ' A Calico Party' is rightly thought to be the most appropriate, be cause tbe most economical sort of en tertainment for tbe occasion. This party has been so arranged as to meet tho tastes ami scruples of all classes and sects in tbe commuaity ; for whilo ac commodations will be afforded for those who may desire to dance, equally com mod:oas facilities are to be provided for titoje who may choose to spend tbe evening in a more quiet manner. The District Court-room will be arranged for dancing, while the Senate Chamber, Supreme Court-room and adjacent ef- Sees will bo prepared for such of tho gnests as are not inclined to participate in tbe ball. In fact everything that conld ho conceived of, to tbe exclusion of what would involve an extravagant etpenditnre of money in the way of preparation, has been arranged by tbe Directors and tbe estimable ladies who have seconded their efforts, to make this entertainment conform to tbe tastes and inclinations of all good citizens of both sexes; and it will bean inexpiable fanlt of all Carson if the present opportunity to give tbe public scholars an invaluable Christmas present is allowed to pass by unimproved Bostos has concluded that " the hub" revolves too slowly as a part of a cold water wheel, so its citizens have con cluded to employ it in the whisky mill interest. That's what's the matter with Mr. Otis Xorcross defeat for the ma jor alty and the election of the Rev. Dr Shnrtliff in hia stead. BY STATE TELEGRAPH From the Virginia Enterprise of yesterday.
