THE DAILY APPEAL
H. i?. jfighels: : Editor. Tuesdr Worl, Feb. 't IS69. & BEM0CBA1IC AHTI SLAVEBY miWe antf infatuated friend, Ssnator Bonnifield has introduced rnto- tae bod of wbich be is s member a Hi'l " To-proeide for the carrying oat ef the provision of Section Seventeen of Article One of the Constitution of .n State of Nevada." Said section f said article reads aa follows : Svc. IT. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, unless for the punishment of cranes, shall ever be tolerated in this State. As will be rc-adily guefsed, the cat tinder the meal " io this BUI, is the ' Coolie," whosa presence among ni ' Caucasians " has raised such a bulla-b-tiloo in Mr. Boonifield's county. Now, e ther as an assumption or a fact, it is much bruited about that the bulk of tap Chinese in this part of the world e peons " or persons under indent ure tecertain high contracting- monop olars in China, and that they, there' fire, come within the meaning of the section of the Constitution quoted caoti; and anti Coolieisro being a part, the professed creed of tbe Democrats, tsis measure of Senator Bonnifield's may be considered as an attempt to carry ont in good faith the prieciples bis party, tt matters not that ojr iVrrrocratic friends are so inconsistent aa to hold that it was injudicious, on- ousHtntiona! and violative of the prin c'plea of skin- Wine ethnology for the "lack Republicans to abolish African :ery we are willing to met them rietf way in their attempts to eradicate from among our ' institutions ' the r-al or supposed eristence of slavery in te form hiuted at. If we have Chinese peon among us lei the fact be known aid let us at once adopt measures for tieir enlargement and relief. This ac knowledgement of " the universal brotherhood of man" comes with a wel-c-mb freshness and newly discovered frankness from-our locg lim political opponents. It is a highly gratifying fact tiat the acknowledgement is thus pro claimed by a representative Democrat 'Hat Celestial ' John " ' is a man and a brother." But if the coolie is thus o be manumitted and blest with free om, what guarantee bare we that be w U not be marrying into Democratic families and attaining to a social equal j.r with the most aristocratic " Caucaj ina "t We beg the advocates of this measure to pan3e and consider the ef-fe-ct of their enactment. It will not do to commit themselves to a policy wbich wi!! not only make a " frcedman ' of V ' cox.lie," bat which will erect his sjctal stat-tts into competitive excel Vnca with that of the champions of '- a erhsta ta-m's Government " If this luing should be allowed to progress to a logical conclusion what assurance n-ive we ttiat a " Bureau" will not have t be, tweeted for the 'eleif of the class tnus emancipated from the tyranny of the oppressor ! We suspect that the author of this Blt cherishes tbe idea that by its intro-K-cMon he has put a " poaer " to the republican rejweseotatives in Legisla t ire lusembled. Ws think he has buili M( a-own of straw and made it an ob ject of statutory assault. We have ncard a great deal of froth and fuatian lout Coolie labor " from parties wisvtoti1d see no wrong in the patri. chial instituoa ' which has lately eradicated from the soil of Dixie ; but we doubt the existence of conc'm ie proofs that these are " peoni " at wosi..rfliin -out herders, ft there are enysuch let there be immediate step" 4t relieve thera from tl-eir boodage. IJitsjiily for the future, tha new treaty rta China expressly provides that no .rxen of tbe United States and no for ' joer shall be permitted to import coo !.. ;. and it U worth while io be re n: nleJ of iie fact that the said treaty w im it was effaced tattie tTnited States ea as it cam from.tlt hands cf Secretary Seward and Mr. Buriiogame, very cortoiogly worded .with regard to W.tauer. It provided that no vvtixea of the United States " shait im port coolie. Thai bod acaeodei it m as "reveal ieh importation by easBn jp.cv.Taiw. fc"-.' ' -. i - viso estops the Chines capitalists of San Francisco from carrying on that abominable traffic. We have read this Bill of Mr. bon nifield's and we hope it will pass. If there are no " peons " in this State it will be merely a harmless piece of Buncombe ; and if there are such nn fortunates among us, let it not be said that a Republican Legislature is nowil ling to give them the chance for that emancipation which seems so just and necessary to our contrite and sympa thetic friends of the Democratic side of the house. THE CAKSON AND VIBGIHIA BAIL BOAT). Work has been begun in enrne3t upon the railway whirh is to connect Carson and Virginia City. Mr. II. M Yerrington, whose energy is proverbial, has been selected by the Trustees as the Superintendent of construction, and some fifty men are now engaged, tindi-r his supervision, in prepaTiog the ground for tbe construction of a tunnel through Point Ben, at the south eastern end of American Flat. Mr. James, the Chief Engineer of the road was in Car son on Saturday evening, and we lenrn from him that it is expected by the corporators that the entire road will be finished and in running order within the next nine months. It will probably take not less than six months of thai time to complete tbe tunnel to which we have alluded. There will be between twenty-ooe and twenty-two miles of the road, all told'. Tbe route serectf d, we believe ie hence to Empire by as direct a line as possible, thence down the river to the Santiago Mill, thence up, past the Mound House. The average grade from the river up, will be a-boiii US feet to the mile. Tbe route from here to the river will require but com paratively li-ttle grading, and cm be prepared for the rails, in the short space of a few weeks by the large fon-e of laborers which it is intended to put upon it. Arrangements are already on foot to convert a part of the Mexican Mill into a machine shop and irot. foundry. Some of the locomotives and freight cars are already in process of construction in San Francisco, and several of the former have been engaged from Kistern manufacturers. The iron we believe, will be purchased if it has not already been bought, in England. So definite conclusion has been nrrived at as to the route which the rod will take through our town, but Mr. Jurrtes, afier looking at the "lay of the Innd " on Sundiy, gave it as his opinion that Caroline street offered the most feasible grade to and from the foot hills, tip to wbich it is intended to run the line. Should Sir. James' ideas meet with the concurrence of the company, it is proba ble that tbe depot will be located witLin a square or two of the mint ; but us we do not speak ' by the card " we cannot advise speculators to make a precipitate investment of their means in purthasing the vacant lots in that vicinity. TL cre am wilder predictions made diily b; cautious men, than ours, that we slial! be able to enjoy a railroad riOe t Vir ginia on next Thanksgiving Day. STATU I.Ii(5 ISI.ATTTRK fiftieth dav-sexat::.

He says that the Secretary of the Navy informs htm that fully half of theficet in command of Admiral Hurl is in Cub-in waters, and the Admiral has received full and frequent in structions to be v igilant and active in pro tectitig American interests in that ngion.

Several additional amendments were re ported and adopted. Mr. Stewart offered' an additional amend ment, transferring the control of the Indian Bureau to the War department. After considerable debate the amendment was rejected S to 26. The bill then passed. The bill to repeal the Tenure of Office Act was taken up, and the Senate adjourned. In the House the Army Appropriation Bill was taken up. All the amendments reducing the ordinary appropriations were agreed to. The Rock Island Armory ap propriation provoked a heated discussion. Iu the midst of the debate, Mr. Butler made a final appeal in favor of his amend ment for a reduction of the army, in oppo sition to Mr. Blaine's amendment. He nrped irentlemen not to take iese riirtV any more, but to legislate for the best interests of the people, acting upon their ow n judgment. and responsibility. 1 his was iu reply io a speech made by Mr. Aelly, expressing con fhlence in General Grant. Mr. Blaine made an earnest appeal against Mr. Butler's annnd-jient. He hoped the House would not vote to deprive General Sherman of the chance to obtain the rank of General of the Arn.y, or Gcneia'.s Sheri dan or Thomas to attain that of Lieutenant General. After a protracted debate, the House time tvs n vote on the amendment reducing the Rock Island appropriation from jl.CH.0,000 to SoOO.OW. It wns rejected. Mr. Blaine's substitute was adopted 111 to 04. The bill then passed- Mr. BSaitse's subtitute provides that no new commissions shall be issued until the army is reduced 10 regiments of infantry, fire of cavalry and five of aitillerv.

Mr. Pike, from the Committee of Confer encecnthe bill to amend ttie laws in nla tion to the Navy and Marine Corps, made a report, which, after discussion, was agreed to, and the house then, toot a recess. -Mr. Tipton introduced a bill granting the rii;lJ of way and public lands iu aid of the Denver South Park ar.d Rio Grande Rail road.

Mr. Howard stated that the PaciEc Kail road Committee had not time to consider the various b l!s bpf:re them, so the com mittee was discharged from further consid eration of a number of biH incorporating va rious companies. In the House, at its evening session, Mr. Willey offered n resolution, which was adopted, directing the Secretary cf State to take measures to aseettsin the cause of the arrest and incarceration r:y the Captain Gen eral of Cuba of Eriiil Cabada, a citiz'-n of the L niteu States. On motion of Mr. Butler, the expense of removing the remains of Thud. Stevens from Washington to his home in Pennsylvania, were ordered to be paid out cf the Coiltin L'ent Fund. Jsiis Buovoham's New Theater. '-S.-.t-anella,M willing from New York to the Morn ing Call, describe John Broahr-m's new theater as follows : John Prousharu opened- his new theater (under the 1 iith Avenue Hotel) on Monday niisht last. It is, unquestionably, the pret tiestt little place of the kind I have yet seeu, either here or abroad. Tt is quite smail, but it is cleg int and refined in its appearance, and has been fitted up luxuriously us well as tastefully. Even th floor of the parquet, throtiL'Iiout, is covered with a rich and costly Brussels carpet, and sadt.oik the tobrtcco chewers wi.l soon make of its beauty. Mir rors in every direction net only multiply the lights into a blnre of brilliance, but magi.if; many timos both the auditorium and the audience until, despite the evidence of facts, somethiiiK imposing. The theater used to be called the l'l th Avenoe Opera House, and was the ' Gold Room " of that house. Il is the one in front of which occurred the fracas between Kelly, Leon and Sharpe, the ncgrn minstrels, which resulted in the shooting aod death of Sharpe's brother by Kelly. After that catastrophe the place lay idle for a long time. Finally, Mr. Fisk, who bouuht Pike's Opera House, and has an odd fancy for the possession of places of public amusement, bought this establishment, and as he rolls in riches, offered to fit it up for Brougham, if he would accept tbe management. Brougham accepted and roiVo .' the new enterprise. Mr. Fisk, they say, has also purchased Wood's Museum, up Brosdway, and has rr.a'le a large offer for the Academy of Music. If he keeps on in this wonderful lashioo, he and Alexander T. Stewart (who hopes to be Sec retary of th Treasury under Grant, and who now owns Nibio's Garden, and also the New York Theater) will soon monopolize most of these "institutions" of ours. I suppose tiiey are a paying kind of property at pr sent ; but" w-nit till the time comes, as it wilt, and won't there be a little squealing 1 However, suirlcient unto the day is the evil thereof," so we will not anticipate misfortune till it introduces itself. Ahead or All. The New. York corres pondent of the Call hat the following : Speaking of acrobatism. the circus has now got the two brothers Rizirelli, (what jaw dislocating names they always select ! ) who surpass Leotard, Hanlon, Pfau, and ail the others put together. Besides ihe customary feats, they do the flying one across the house, simultaneously, one catching the other's trapese as he leaves it, and vice versa the whole being done with an ease, grace, and abandon that are next to miraculous. Death or John M. Gambli:. A dispatch from Shell Creek, t'tah Territory, da!d the 13th, savs that John M. Oamb'e, Histrict Superintendent of the Western Union Tele graph Company died in that place this morn lug after a short illness, of indamatioe of the liver. He has been connected with the C. 1 ifornia Telegraph for the last fifteen years, and for the past six years has been Superin tendent of the lines between Virginia City and Salt Lake. He was a native of BaltU mere county, Maryland. OXOBOZ OOKHAM ACTING FOB HI SBIERO WESTM0BELAND We find' in the Globe the following manner provided by tbe Senate of the United Swates for the payment of the mileage, a3 an elector, which accrued-to- the account of tbe late Cbarlet Westmoreland.
