Habitual drunkenness can not be justified even in a private citizen. It is wholly inexcusable in a public official. We are told by the press of the country that President Grant drinks to excess; that United States States Senators frequently appear on the floor of the Senate grossly intox icated; that high functionaries, civil and military, in every department of the public service are given to this blighting vice, and, Anally, that 'the American people are last becoming a nation of sots and drunkards. Now, we are not a very strong believer in that character of assertion which draws invidious distinctions between the men and women of to-day and those of any other period in the Re public’s history. On the contrary, we lean very strongly to the opinion that there is as much true manhood and virtue in this generation as iu any that has preceded it. “ The better and purer days ol the Republic,” which some writers delight so much to dwell upon, may have had an existence, but it is our notion that people the world over have averaged about the same in point of moral rectitude for a great many years back. But we are wander ing somewhat from the subject in hand. We started out to devote a short chapter more particularly to official inebriety. As already stated, any de gree of drunkenness can not be pali ated or excused in a public official. No one will attempt to deny that con tinued dissipation completely disquali fies a mail for every character of busi ness. It prostrates even the most brilliant intellects and utterly de stroys the purest and holiest instincts. When a man is elected to a responsi ble public office there is an implied contract between himself and the peo ple that he will faithfully and efficiently discharge every duty incumbent upon him. This he can not do if continually atupifled by, the excessive use of al coholic stimulants. Law and justice are thus outraged and society suffers In consequence. There Bhould be a remedy for the prompt punishment of official delinquencies of this nature. It would appear that the power ought to be lodged somewhere to dismiss from place the public servant who, disregarding his solemn obligation to the sovereign people, becomes incapa ble of discharging the duties of his po sition. We can not Imagine a more disgusting spectacle than maudlin drunkenness on the part of one clothed with official power. The people of Eureka have been compelled to wit ness such scenes entirely too frequent of late. We hope we shall not feel called upon to speak plainer. ■ ■— m m ■ • ■ The U. P.—We are indebted to Mr. Morrison, of the Railroad telegraph line, for information concnrning the movement of trains in the washed district of the Union Pacific. Four or five west bound trains probably reached Ogden last night. The bridge across Green river will not be re paired so trains can pass over it be fore next Tuesday. It is thought by that time the entire road will be in run ning order. Lexington Guards.—This is the name of a new military company just ■formed In Pioebe. Following are the offioers: Tom Gallagher, Captain; John Dimond, 1st Lieut.; Tom Byrnes, 2d Lieut.; Jas. Cameron, 3d Lieut; Wm. O’Brien, 1st Sergt.; Jerry Hamlngton, 2d Sergt.; Jehn O’Day, 3d Sergt.; Frank Barrett, 4th Sergt.; J. L. Donahue, 1st Corpl.; John Rourke, 2d Corpl.; Wm. McCormick, 3d Corpl.; John Quillen, 4th Corpl. Bio Suit.—A dispatch to the Senti nel, from San Francisco, states that the Government has commenced suit against the Central Pacific Railroad to recover nearly two millions of dollars. We imagine that it will not amount to much. The Railroad, most likely, will put in a oounter claim for trans porting the mails, army supplies, etc., of equal magnitude. Municipal Election.—The Demo crats of Virginia City have placed a fUll ticket in the held for municipal ofBoers. The resolutions adopted in convention favor the restrictions or prohibition of gambling and demand that the net proceeds of tiie mines be taxed for municipal purposes. J. C. Carrie was unanimously nominated for Mayor. A oxntlkmaw, In whose Judgment wg have tbs utmost oonfldenos, thinks ws would be perfectly ssfe in offering a reward of (500 for a single Instance wksriln the Bnterpriat correctly quotes a contemporary.

Thomas Voorbees has been engaged in prospecting In American district since last February, and has succeeded in finding w hat he believes to be a good mine. He and his partner. T. U. Clay pole, take out and sack on an av erage a half ton of ore daily in sink ing a shaft on the lead. The ledge is three feet wide and well defined. The formation in which it is situated Is syenite, and the ore contains gold, silver and lead. American district is situated on the eastern slope of the Humboldt rang#, about 18 miles south of Unionville, and though the district was located in 1862, it has never been prospectod to tiny extent. The hills are covered with cedar, and a fine stream of water flows through the canyon. Madam Moore, of Virginia City, is afraid of burglars, and having $r>UO in gold coin and a certificate of deposit for $4,000, placed the whole in a stove for safe keeping. Last Sunday night, forgetting all about the matter, she built a rousing fire in her temporary safe, and the next day, remembering her deposit, she examined the stove and found the gold pieces in a semi molten condition and the certificate of course destroyed. She will lose but little, but is not likely liereafler to make use of a stove as a place in which to cache her valuables. In the Supreme Court a decision lias been rendered in two cases in whicli the Central Pacific Railroad Company appeal from the judgment of the Dis Diet Court. Both cases are for taxes. The Supremo Court affirms the decis ion of the Court below in perhaps the most voluminous opinion ever render ed by the Supreme Court in this State. The opinion is by Justice Beatty, and is concurred in by the full bench. The Central Pacific will accordingly be obliged to pay its taxes in Washoe county, at least. F. J. McWorthy, of the Babbit Hole Sulphur mine, intends to build works at his sulphur bed for the purpose of reducing it to brimstone. There is plenty of wood in the vicinity for that purpose. Tlte sulphur bank is sixty feet high, and a cut fifteen feet long has been run into it. About 75 tons have been extracted, and the qualitv improves as the hank is penetrated, there being less ashes and foreign mat ter than at tie surface. A lot of immigrants have com menced suit against Fetterman A bee, intelligence office keepers in Virginia. The immigrants aver that they paid the defendants $2 50 each in consider ation of which they were to be fur nished employment on last Monday. When they applied at the office last Monday they were told that there were no situations for them, and that the book-keeper of the concern had absconded with the funds. Mr. Cole, of Dayton, lies invented an apparatus for sweeping down th« sulphurate caught in tailings flumes, which is of great value. It moves along the flume on wheels and the sweeping is done by revolving brushes. The machine does the work of eight men. It is in use on the big flume near the mouth of Cold canyon. Her Highness, the Princess Sr.rali Winnemucca, is at present holding court at Summit Springs, on the Idaho road. She does not intend to remain a great while at the Springs;- the place is not lively enough for her. Within the noxt week three trtills on the Carson river will bo supplied with coal tor their furnaces from the Vir ginia City Coal Company's mine,which is now in a condition' to furnish 150 tons of coal per day. Tha Leopard Company Is going to build another mill at Cornucopia dis trict. It will run 40 stamps and has amalgamating machinery in propor tion. Constable A. J. Smith, of Virginia, was on Monday morning stricken with paralysis, the whole left side of his body being completely benumbed. The Northern Belle Company, of Columbus, have about $30,000 worth of bullion ready for their second ship ment. Travis A Pittman anrl Frank Higgs have leased Gen. Page’s mill at Alida. These parlies have purchased the cele brated Death Valley mine. Z. Bryant was fined $5 and costs at Reno, the other day, for selling whisky to Indians. He should have been sent to the pest-house for tan years. The damage by the recent Are in Chinatown in Austin was about $1,000. Song Kee A Co. were the principal sufferers. The grass in the Mint building lot in Carson is being destroyed by swarms of blue bottle Aies. PARTU'mU.1 OF THE IIORRI BUTCHEBY IN HUMBOLDT COUNTY. The telegraph a tow days ago brought ua brief mention of a shock ing murder in Humboldt comity. We now have from the Silver Stc.te full particulars of the blood-curdling deed. For fiendishness it stands without a parallel in the history of crime in this State. The murderer seems to have fairly reveled in the blood of his vic tim. The following is the Silver Slate’s account of the terrible atrocity: Last Saturday evening, the Sheriff, accompanied by F. J. McWorthy, owner of the sulphur mine, William Spencer and James Knapp, left Mill City for the mine. They arrived at a spring within live miles of the mine on Sunday afternoon, where they found J. W. Hover, who was employed at the mine with Sharp. McWorthy asked him if he had seen Sharp since be (McWorthy) had left the camp, to which he sullenly replied. “No, by God, I have bad other business to at tend to.” The party remained at the springs ail nignt. and kept close watch of Hover, without letting him know that he was suspertpd, nnd next morning s:arted to the mine, taking Rover along with ilietn. Upon arrivng at the camp, tlie Sheriff examined an ax which .was lying there and no ticed that it was bloody, tmt whelli er tlie blood was that of a human be ing or from a quarter of beef at tlie camp, there were no means of as certaining. Search was then com menced in the vicinity of the camp for anything that might give a clew to tlie murder, if one had been com mitted. About 250 yards from the camp the Sheriff discovered where tlie earth had been recently removed, and upon digging unearthed a por tion of a pair of pantaloons. Fur ther search was rewarded by finding a leg, an arm, tlie head anti trunk of the murdered man in different places, from 250 to 500 yards from tlie camp, each having been concealed in a badg er hole, which was marked by dirt thrown on the sagebrush in tlie* vicin ity, which conveyed the idea that tlie murderer evidently intended to re move tlie pieces at some future time. A coat was also found with the col lar cut off, which is supposed to have been done at tlie time the tiead was severed from the body. Tlie body was horribly mutilated; the right leg was cut off at tlie hip, tlie left below the knee, the right arm near the shoulder, and tlie head from Ike trunk. Tlie right arm, left thigh and both legs below the knee have not been found. The head, trunk and oilier pieces were collected and wrapped in a blanket, arid deposited in a shallow grave to await tlie action of the Coro ner. J. N. .Sharp, the murdered man, re sided in Oakland, California, where lie kept the Parker Hotel for a num ber of years. His watch was found In the camp, but no other valuables of any kind, though he was known to have several hundred dollars on his person when lie left Oakland thro° weeks ago for the mines. Letters of an affectionate character,signed “Kate,” were found in his coat pocket. Rover is a small man, apparently about 40 years of age. He is very ret icent, and refuses to give any informa tion about the mat er. He was brought here heavily ironed by Sheriff Mash, and is now in jail. - LOVr IT THE vro«M. A aao-mllc Hide lii the Mountain* After Stork— Four Ilnys Without Food—The Terrors of Denlli nu.l Dentb Talley. The Lyon County Times, of the 20th instant, contains the following account ot the advqjitures of John Carling, brother of II. Carling, of Fort Chur chill, while hunting cattle (luring the storm of April 7th, in which he came as near the gate that lea Is out of the w'orld as most people would care to ap proach ; Mr. Carling had cattle ranging in the Big Bend country, and fearing the nerd would wander away during the storm and extreme cold, nis brother in-law, himself, and one other, all resi dentmear Churchill, starred on horse back to look them up and briag them in. Tho j arty traveled all day without seeing the herd, and at night camped about twenty miles from Churchill. On the following morning the three started out again, in efferent d!r»c tions, and with the understanding that all wore to meet at the camp in the evening, if unsuccessful. The broth er-in-law ar.d the other, wliese name we did not learn, were unsuccessful, and in the evening returned to camp, built up a lire, prepared supper and awaited the arrival of their companion —Mr. Carling; but the evening and the night passed and morning came with out tils return- Fearing that ho 'had met with an accident or become lost, the two saddled up, went in search, and when several miles out struck tho trail of Carling, Leaillug Through the Know Toward the mountains. Thinking he had obtained trace of the herd and Imping to overtake him soon, they tol lowed as fr.st as possible; though the trail looked fresh and they rode hard, darkness came and they camped with out him. So passed the »cxt da.v and the next day after on the tortuous trail, and no Carling. The scanty provis ions of the party in search were fast giving out and had to Ihj rigidly econo mized, if any was to be saved for t tie missing man. At times the trail led over log barricades, through dense un dergrowth, and over rocky declivities, and here and there Drops of Blood ou tue Know Marked the struggles mid falls of the benighted wanderer and his faithful horse. It was now evident that Car ling was thoroughly lost, and when found would bo helpless—perhaps dead—as ho took no food, matches, knife, or firearms, and had rode night and day. On the morning of the fourth "day, the searching party omerged from the mountains upon the edge of ' Death Valley, And at a deserted cabin near Black Springs, having traveled over 2(H) miles. On entering they were over joyed to find their lost coin rude had re cently been there, and were rewarded a few moments later by discovering both horse and rider a short distance away. Both were in a famished and almost dying condition, and had it not iieen for this opportune arrival of help another tragedy would have bet a add ed to the melancholy history of that Sahara of death. Mr. Carling' was soon made comfortable with food and tire, anil was able to give an account of his wanderings. After becoming Lout Rryauil all Hope, And either not daring to trace his long, wearisome trail back again, or hoping to find speedier relief, lie determined to pursue a straight course until he found shelter and food. But imagine his despair, as at last, after all his de termined struggles and patient suffer ings, he emerged from the enveloping wilderness only to find himself on the edge of Death Valley—that terrible waste of alkali plain, on whose hits tered, barren surface lie bleaching the scattered bones of those who year after year have undertaken its pilgrimage. It will be remembered that a nutn >er of herders and a band of six thousand sheep, which they were attempting to drive across into the Coho country, per ished on this desert last Summer. The heat at that time was most intense and the hot beat swept the alkali waste like the burning sorroeoo of the African desert, carrying death to every living thing beneath its arid wings. The re mains of these Mr. Carling saw, and in his faint and half delirious state, what wonder if lie imagined lie beheld the unsepulchred host ruling up before liis bewildered vision!—the (limit y Her lera With flesliless, beckoning fingers, al luring him to the fate!—the skeleton Hocks capering hither and thither over, the snowy expanse,—skeleton horses neighing a plaintive welcome to liis own jaded beast; and heard the weird melodies of the marching dead, as they sentineled their phantom herds. To attempt to cross that sixty miles of plain was to approach tho deadly Upas, while to remain on its deso late coniines was no less than dealh by starvation; and Mr. Carling was resigning himself to his fate, when the voice ol his companions reached liis ears. When Carting first entered the cabin lie found two pieces of tal low candle which lie devoured. He hud di-p tired of ever re ic ling home, and taking a piece of brown paper, in which the candles were wrapped, He Wrote Ills Will, Bequeathing liis property, worth $50, 000, to liis wile and children, and also recorded the date and' circumstances of his adventure, that those who should find his body might also have a elue to its identity. Luckily for him his companions persevered in their search; liis friends are spared much grief, and he lives to recount liis most fortunate escape. We congratu late Mr. C. and are glad to learn that he is almost entirely recovered from the effect of his eventful trip. EASTERN DISPATCHES. Bt Overland Telegraph.

Marshal Packard lias telegraphed the fact to Congressman Frye, asking if, by tlie award, the Democrats were not pledged not todis turb any members of tlie House but those included in lbs award.

Congressman Wheeler tele graphs to Governor Kellogg tlia;. while still of the opinion expressed to him and Packard, he does not feel ai liberty to give a written opinion wit h out tlie concurrence of his associates. His opinion to the Governor and Packard, they stale, was that tlie four tncmiiers unseated were to be left uu disturbed. 93,000,000 of 5-aO Hullil* Cl»llc l 111 — Wash ington . April 20.

Ilenry McFarland was tile next wit ness and testitied <hat Boucher called on him, in the Christian Union office, June 22, 1S72, between 11 and 12o'clock, and stayed aboul 40 minutes, and or dered his mail to Lie sent to Boston. Witness remembers the publication of a card by Beecher and saw1 him at the house of Mo.-o L. Beaclt on the 25th of J title, and at that time suggested to hiui tlie pu.dicaliou of the card. On cross examination, Cleveland tes titmu that lie made the acquaintance of Frank Carpenter oil Sunday, the 25th tit May. Ho went to him lor Beecher ami was to bring him to Moulton’s, as Beecher said iiew’auted him to go to Bowen and confer with him in regard to some reports having reference to Beecher. “Carpenter and 1 talked about the triparlia covenant." Shear man objedeu to this Hue of testimony, and counsel said he proposed to show that Carpenter was brought over to Bowen to threaten him with publish ing the triparlie agreement if lie didn’t stop repeating stones. Witness re sumed: “1 told (.'arjienter that if the stories were repeated the agreement would be published. At the time ol the conversation, I knew Beecher's moral character was involved. I never talked with Beecher about the scandal but talked with him about the Woodhull publication November 1st, ls72. I knew there were stories atloat effecting Beec.ier’s moral character, which wore settled in April, ln72, by covenant. These scandals afloat relat ed to Beecher’s imii o d coin n t w ith regard to women. I lie covenant was published from manuscript in the hands of .Siam Wilkeson. It was un derstood from Beecher that Bowen circulated the stories about Ids moral character, and this was all that was -aid on the subject. I took the cove nant to tne Titties' office May 29th to publish. I left it with Mr. Jones because 1 knew there would be a newspaper war, and 1 wanted to set Beecher in a true position in the eyes of tlie press. I took it there al*o to have mi inter view w ith Jones, hut don't rememlier what I said. VVhen I left it with the /'tines I knew it would le published. Didn't say to Jones, " Beecher wanted it published." Said to Carpenter that if lie would look into tlie papers next morning he would see tlie biggest sen sation in tlie country since tlie war. Had talks with counsel about my tes timony, and have eon versed with them .tiree or four times since 1 came from the country with reference to my evi deuce. The hour of the day at which I saw Beecher was not a topic of con versation. 1 have a pur ial rccollee tinn of being at his office that evening, but not of what took place. I elthei was there with Jno H. Howard oi Ford, and if I did go, I suppose the visit was to see tliai the proofs were correct. On the 25th of June, Beecher mentioned the names of gentlemen on whom he intended to fall in regard to the investigation of the Bacon charge, and I was one of tlie names lie siig •tested. As I recollect, tlie rest were Sage. Ctafliii, Beecher, Hawkins and Shearman. The specie shipment from New York to-day was *MI.000. oT which JJO.lMto was gold coin and the remainder silvei bars.
