Win. Wal lace Western. Capt. Western is represented to have been a man of brilliant talent, which won for him distinction in early life. He served during the war in the Confederate aer ates, and one of these poems, "Prison Pas time," was written during the long boors of his imprisonment. This work proves the au thor's thorough classic attainments, subjected to a brilliant and cultivated fancy. "To Whom it may Concern," is another poem de tailing in e light and sarcastic way, after the style of Don Juan, the adventures of two Confederate officers while working their way through the lines to Canada on a mission to England in 18&4. It had a large circulation through the South. Any old friends of Capt. Western in this neighborhood will find these works very interesting. Cumins i. Caumdar or the Diktbict Count. The State vs. M.

Itouor om Waauok Count*.?The Beno Crescent says that the exj unses of the county and State incurred and to be incurred in ar resting, convicting and punishing the railroad robbers, will amount to several thousand dol lars?much more than the entire receipts of taxee from the company for the your 1870. The same condition of things exi.ted last year. It cost the county more to protect the company's interests, almost two to one, than their taxes amounted to; and yet they ooru plain greviouslv that they are imposed upon. ? Rir.it Rii.iT lltiriUt. Elko county is in the same predicament. The cost of the trial of the robbers of the train in this county will eat up some of that railroad assessment.

They did not appreciate the situation or it would have been done ere this. As a mutter of course they would put it, to preserve the Government and the Republican party. With tho exception of Nye, they huve about as much love for the Republicuu party in minority as the Devil has for holy water. FRENCH ROTISSERIE! On Ilallruad ilrrtt, near Fourth atrial, Elko.
