H. Jf. dishels::::::::::::EdUar. Taesdajr HoibIh(, March 3, 1868 Xeeting of the Union State Central Committee. At a meeting of tbp State Central Committee of the Union Party of Nerada, held pursuant to call, 1 ebrnary 10, 1868, it was ordered as follows : That a State Con-rention for the purpose of se lecting delegates to represent the State in the convention of the National Union Kepnhlican Party, called to meet in Chicago an the 2TOh of May, 1863, be called to meet in Carson City on the Sin day of April next. That delegates to said convention be apportioned as follows: One for each connty, and One for each Senator and Bepresentative to which sweh county is entitled. That the several connty Central Committees be Instructed to provide for the election of Delegates to the State Convention ; said elections to be by direct vote at the Primaries, or by conventions as the committees may direct. All elections of delegates to be had prior to the 1st of April next. That at the Primaries for the selection of dele gates, the following teMt be recommended, when ever a challenge shall be made t j the right of a party to vote: Did yon, at the hist election for State olBeers, rapport the Union ticket?" "And will you, at thu next Presidential election, support the nomi nees of the National Republican party ? " C. . DeLONG, Chairman. C. 3f . Notctvabe, Secretary pro tern. of one town of the Shingle Springs va riety at the depot en the Truckee, sev eral imart settlements would spring op along the route. Bnt the fact for the taxpayers of Washoe county to consider is that this road would be not less than twenty five or thirty miles long and a railway of that length is a very hand some tit bit for the assessor and tax collector. Indeed, apart from all other considerations, the sonrce of revenue that a finished railroad, as a piece of which provides that until the Legislature hall otherwise direct, there shall be a Dis trict Judge and an Attorney in each Sena torial District, the Courts thus constituted to determine all offenses punishable with death or imprisonment in the penitentiary. The Judges of the Supreme, Superior and District Courts, and the Attorney Genera! and the District Attorneys are to be appoint ed by the Governor, with the consent of the Senate.

The citizens of Washoe connty will meet in the Court Hoose in Washoe City on Thursday next, to consider the ques tioa of subscribing to the proposed agreement with the Virginia and True kee Kail way Company, from an ac count of the meeting held in that place last week, which appears in the Eastern Slope of last Saturday, the proposition would seem to meet with much favor. The speakers, says that paper, " estab lished beyond the possibility of contra vention that the interest not only of Carson and Washoe, but of the entire county, demanded the building of this road. It was clearly demonstrated that the investment of three hundred thou sand dollars, by the connty of Washoe, will be a paying one, aside from the beneficial results to accrue to the mining, milling and timber interests of the coun ty. That the payment of twenty-one tijoaiand dollars interest will not neces sitate the imposition of burdensome tax ation on the property holders of this coauty. On this showing an expression of the citizens present was called for, and but two found, with the hardihood to open their mouths ia opposition to Ije scheme." From gentlemen who were present at the meeting referred to, we learn that the opposition of these two persons was sot offered because of any disfavor to ward the proposition itself, but, rather, ia tha interest of certain sanguine par ties who expect, when the Central Pa ctfs shall be running its cars to tbe Truckee, to establish a London or 'ew York, or at least a Chicago at tbe switching off place. We suppose would be lore's labor lost to argue with Bach infatuated mortals ; and, indeed it would be bordering upon tbe imperii rent to oppose their ideas if tbey had aay bed rock foundation. Some ideas hare been suggested by a glance at the i'.nation, however, and we beg leave to advance them for what tbey are worth. Ia the first place, of course we are incredulous with regard to tbe proba bility of a great commercial city oa the fcaukj of tbe Truckee. Moreover, we do not believe that any city is to spring up ia this State rivalling in wealth and consequence the City of Virginia until another Comstock ledge is discovered and developed. Where the quartx is, there will the city builders gather to gether. Secondly, the policy of attempting to monopolize all the benefits of the C. P. C K. at a way station is anything but Sagacious and anything but business like compared with a proposition to t.-averse the entire length of Washoe Vailey from tbe line of Ormsby connty to the Truckee by rail, as the Virginia Railroad Company will do if their agree ment is acceded to. In the first place, a road which should so run would ac commodate every quarts mill in that sCounty, facilitate the operations of all the wood dealers, and provide cheap transportation for the produce of every farmer in the Valley. Then again, the lands lying along the line of the road arould be materially increased in ralue, tura sites would appreciate, and instead the most important matters to be taken into consideration We submit this, not to oppose any serious or wide spread opposition to the proposition in question, but to recite some ideas respecting tbe large benefits which are sure to accrue to our neigh bors over the divide whenever their county shall furnish the route through which themselves may supply the Vir ginia market with farm produce and tbe like, and by which all Southern and Western Nevada will connect, sooner or later, with the great trane-continen tal railway. tors and proprietors of newspapers advocat ing secession and all who preached secession sermons. . per cent." The committee were satisfied that the five per cent, on all the manufacturing of the country could be and ought to be given He should undertake to say what those five or six articles were on which the tax was pro posed to be retained. They were, however, purely articles of luxury, such as jewels, gold watches, billiard tables, etc. He had been asked as to one large manufacturing in terest that of carriage-makers and was ready now to say that carriages were not ar ticles regarded as luxuries to be taxed. Blain suggested that they were to be on the free list. Schenck said he did not propose to have what is called a free list, but would simply provide that such and such things should be taxed. He would say nothing about thincs Chicago, February 29.

Washington, February 2S. The House Committee on Impeachment will not report articles till to-morrow. It is now stated that there will be ten in all. Marshal Gooding has formally handed Stanton a writ notifying him of the suit entered against him. Washington, February 28. There seems to be little doubt that Congress will abolish the Bureau of Statistics. The Senate rejected the nomination of Colonel Wisewell as Commissioner of Inter nal Revenue. Under the law relative to the summons served on Secretary Stanton, he is allowed twenty days to respond before the next term of the District Court, therefore the case can not come up till April. The Georgia case came op in the Supreme Court to-day. David Dudly Field, for the petitioners, moved for leave to file a bill for an injunction upon Generals Grant, Meade and Rutger. Carpenter, for the de fense, said the whole question of the legal ity of the Reconstruction laws would come up on the motion, and asked that argument be fixed for next Friday. The Court so or dered, and counsel will file briefs. Chicago, February 29.

' Wilson reported a bill to incorporate a Na tional Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, which was referred to the District of Columbia Committee. The bill requiring persons applying for an extension of patents to give public notice thereof was passed. Tbe bill granting a portion of Goat Island to the Western Pacific Railroad was consider ed till the expiration of the morning hour. The joint resolution to convey into the treaty the proceeds of the captured and abandoned property came up in the Commit tee of the Whole. Amendment was adopted after a warm debate, placing $100,000 of the sum so conveyed into the Treasury at tha dia poaal of the Secretary for payment of the nc cessary expenses in tbe collection of the pro perty, and also for the defense of any suits which may be brought against the Secretary. The bill passed the Senate as amended. McCreery, the new Kentucky Senator, ap peared and took the oath.

After some time the committee rose and reported the Appropriation bill to the House. Its con sideration was postponed till Wednesday. The Speaker said he was informed that Articles of Impeachment would probably be received to-morrow. Schenck, from the Committee on Ways and All Cabinet omcers were present at a Cabinet meeting to-day, including General Thomas. Intelligence has been received that the Freedmen's Bureau in Kentucky, abolished by General Grant, has been quietly restored by Stanton without orders from the President. The contemplated charge against the Pres ident of attempting to change military dis tricts without the consent of Congress, has been abandoned. A writ of quo warranto will certainly be applied for by the Government, perhaps to morrow, in the proper tribunal, with a view to compel Stanton to shew cause why he re tains possession of the War Department.
