THE DAILY APPEAL
H. if. Mighels :::::: : : ; Editor. Tuesday Morning, July 21, 1668 NATIONAL. l.MOS REPUBLICAN SOJ1IATIO.S. FOR PRESIDENT, OF THE UN1TKD STATES, ULYSSES S. GRANT, OF ILLINOIS. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, SCHUYLER COLFAX, OF INDIANA. There is not much of the " Eternal tness of things " in the manner with which oar Democratic friends enter the field to contend against the election of Grant and Colfax. The Convention at Chicago put forth a ticket bearing the names of one great military hero and one man highly and honorably distin guished in civil life. The Democracy got together at New York and choose at their standard bearers one widely known civilian one of the many subor dinates of the acknowledged conqueror of the rebellion. Doe3 Democracy court a comparison of the two soldiers and the two civilians ? Has any man the audacity to contrast the services of Major General Frank Blair with the achievements of General Grant ? If any man is to receive honor3 from loyal American voters for great deeds done in oppression of the Rebellion, is the preference to be given to the man whose name is counted far down below any of Grant's right hand men, or to the chieftain who wrenched the sword from Lee's hand aid made pris oners of war of the entire rebel army ? Shall we hunt up the details and dis tinguishing features of an obscnre war record or take one which emblazons the very caption of the American scroll of fame? Place the names of Colfax and Seymour side by side and ask your con sciences whom of these two stands fairest in patriotic eyes. Which one of them is most entitled to your trustful ness? Does friendship for Lincoln and support of his administration in the days of the Nation's peril count as any thing worthy of commendation ? Study Seymour's and Colfax's record during and after 18G3. Look closely to see if tou can 6nd anything in all Schuyler Colfax's course as a public man which blemishes his character as Sevmour blemished his by declaring against the Draft. Seymour's dastardly sedition fill powerless under Grant's strokes at Vicksburg and Meade's great feat of arms at Gettysburg. When history shall coma to recount the heroes of the war for preserving the Union it3 finger will reluctantly trace oot the course of Francis P. Blair ; and in doing so, will assign him his place in the trenches before Vicksbnrg, in 18C3 guarding Grant's rear from a threatened assault by Johnston. It shall follow his devi ous course and find him holding, in 1368, a subordinate position to Horatio Seymour, the man who found no better employment while that great siege was going on than to wake the distrust of bis constituents against the patriotism and capacity of Blair's comrades in arms. This people will not prefer such a renegade to Schoyler Colfax. VTe need oot pursue these comparisons. from the field, now seeks to nullify and squander the advantages gaioed to the Nation by the wise, liberal and alto gether necessary Reconstruction acts of Congress. " Let us nave Peace I THE VHtGIHIA AHD TBUCKEE EAIL BOAS AIB FKOM THE COMSTOCK MIKIHG COMPANIES. The non action of the corporators of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad with regard to the grading of the same has brought about the popular conclusion that the enterprise has fallen through or been indefinitely postponed. That they have concluded to proceed inde pendentty of the counties, if at all, or, at any rate to wait until the next Leg slature shall determine whether coun ty assistance is to be had, has seemed evident; and we are led to think that when the road will be eventually built (as we have no doubt it will be) its construction will be had as a necessity to the Storey county mines, to say nothing of its character as an invest ment to the corporators. The proposi tion, advocated by this paper, that Ormsby county had better give two hundred thousand dollars, outright, than that Carson and Empire Cities should not be connected, by rail, with the outside world, is just as sound ai ever ; but if the Railroad Company do not grade the road tb is season, the agreement already entered into is void ; and if by waiting another year the road is to be built without our help, so much the better we can wellaffbrd the delay. As a proof that there is something more than mere conjecture to warrant the belief that capital is seriously inter ested in the Virginia and Truckee Rail road, we append the following from the Financial column of the San Francisco Bulletin ofthelTih inst.: EASTEBH DISPATCHES. From the Trespasser lot evening. Washington, July 18. The tax bill has been presented. It is very lengthy The bill is reported to reduce the num ber of Internal Reveoue officers to less than half the present number. The effect will be a great reduction of ex penses. The Senate has confirmed J. J. Pow ers as Chief Justice for Idaho ; II. D Warren, Chief, and II. Knowles, Asso ciate Justice for Montana ; Sherman Day, Surveyor General for California. Thomas J. Hedley, nominated by the President for Postmaster at San Fran cisco, was rejected. The President has sent to both Houses a message recommending an amendment to the Constitution, provid ing for the election of President of the United States by direct vote of the people ; confining the Presidential of fice to one term, and prescribing who all accept the duties of the Executive office in case of vacancy by death of both President and Vice President. The message was referred. Five Representatives from Louisiana and two from South Carolina were sworn in. The Governor of South Carolina has transmitted a joint resolution of the Legislature of that State ratifying the recess till evening, when the funding bill was again considered. A number of amendments to portions of the bill were proposed and generally rejected. DIED In Orson, Sunday, July 19, Talbot II. Low. 33. 33.

These men hope (and bive ample reason for so hoping) that with a Copperhead Presi dent and a majority of Copperheads upon the Supreme Bench they can de stroy the validity of the Reconstruction acts and replace the political power of the Southern States in the bands of the Old slave masters. With Sevmour to cry "3 coercion" from the White Ilou3e, bat is there to deter the " con federancy" from again assuming to it self separate and independeut powers? Nothing but another civil war; and gainst ail possible chances for such a lamentable recurrence it is the duty of every loyal man to interpose his ballot. The party which had for its purpose in 1361 the withdrawal of the Union forces The report of the President of the Savase Mining Company, presented at the annual meeting yesterday afternoon, contains some important suggestions, not only in relation to the continued prosperity of that Company, but of all the leading Companies havine mining claims in the Washoe District. It is a well known fact that the expense of taking out ere increases in proportion to the depth of the level whence it is secured ; also, that muca of tne low grade ore is not taken out at all, because, under existing circumstances. it will not par to hare it milled. Hence it is necessary to reduce the working expenses of the mines, not only to enable the Companies to continue their operations with success in the lower levels, but also to make available the low grade ore which has hitherto been passed by. Jot the least important part of the expenses of the lrgima Mining Compa nies consists in the amounts paid out for transportation of ores and supplies. A great saving in this respect can be made by im proving the facilities for such transportation. Accordingly, it has been proposed to con struct a railroad from the Virginia and Gold Hill mines so as to connect with the Central Pacific Railroad ; indeed, a Company has already been incorporated having this object in view. To facilitate the construction of this road, the Company solicit aid of the Mining Companies to be benefitted thereby, the amounts subscribed by each to be re turned upon completion of the road by the transportation of freight for the respective Companies sufficient to cover such sums. This form of subsidy is entirely unexcep tionable, the Mining Companies being fully reimbursed for their temporary loans. A few facts will show the advantages to be de rived from such a railroad. During the past fiscal year, the lavage Mining Company paid for hauling 17,8-4 tons of ore from the mines to the mills, 71,82.5 ; by railroad the same could have been transported at Ji.5,564; for hauling 2,620,000 feet of Timber and Lumber from the Washoe Valley to the mine, 34,060 was paid; by railroad this could have been laid down at $18,340 ; for hauline 3.500 cords of Wood. S29.3S4 was paid ; by railroad the expense would have been S13,93S: a saving of 2 per ton on 67,000 tons of ore shipped to custom mills would also have been made, if there had been railroad facilities for that purpose. From these several items, therefore, a saving of over y-UU.OUO expenses by this Company alone, during the past year, might have been effected through the existence of a railroad, as follows : Saved. nanlinrore from mine to Company's mills $-31,261 Hauling ore from mine to custom mills 11.000 Hauiiti!; Timber and Lumber.. 15,720 Hauling Wood ld.&xi to the Appropriation bill. Cattell called op the bill providing for the issue of three per cent, certifi cates to the amount of 25 millions, for the purpose of retiring the outstanding compound interest notes. After debate the bill passed. Wilson, from the Military Committee, reported back the bill reducing the army to a peace establishment. The Senate proceeded to consider the Deficiency Appropriation bill, to which a number ot amendments were at tached by the committee, which were variously disposed of. A Committee of Conference was or dered on the Indian Appropriation bill. Debate on the deficiency of the Ap propriation bill was continued till near ly 5 o'clock, when the Senate went in- to Executive session and scon after took a recess till evening.

An enort will be made to in crease the amount to 250,000 by an amend ment to the by-laws.
