In the Carson Tribune of the 22d inst. appears a card from General John R. Kittrrell explaining the hand be took in the appointinent of the guard Mil ler, who has lately been kicking up such a rumpus about State Prison mat ters. The General denies emphatically having concurred in the appointment of Millar (though admits that be did speak to Warden Hyman in his behalf at the request of the Governor), and growing a little savage toward the wind-up, he proclaims boldly that when the proper time shall have ar rived for him to vindicate his official acts, he will come out frankly “ regard less of whose standing or interest it may affect.” Are we to Infer from this that the Attorney General is after all going to give his assent to the publication of the testimony taken by the Joint Committee of the Legisla ture last Winter? The failure to exe cute the recommendation of the Sen ate in this regard calls about as loud for •* vindication" as anything we know of in connection with the whole aSair. That evidence is what the peo ple desire now, and any further at tempt on the part of the board of Pris on Commissioners to suppress it will but add to the growing popular belief -that the management of the prison has fallen into the hands of a corrupt ring. We think we know differently, but to longer ignore the recommendation of the Senate can not be viewed in any -other light, and ought not to be, than as • very determined, not to say high handed, effort on the part of somebody to shield somebody else. Let us have that testimony full and fair. TNI LIBELOUS ARTICLE. Telegraphic advices, published here with, state that the Bulletin and Call proprietors yesterday commenced a suit against the Alta lor alleged libel, the daniagea being laid at $25,000. J. W. bimonton, who has a proprietary interest in the Bulletin and Call, and who is also agent of the Associated Press in the East, recently published a lengthy card in the New York Times, Justifying the course of those papers in connection with the late financial panic In ban Francisco. In commenting upon Mr. Sifiionton’n card, the Alta took occasion to animadvert severely against the Bulletin and Call, and the * result is the libel suit instituted yester day. We consider it extremely doubt ful It the case is ever pressed to a hear ing. Following is the libelous portion of the Alta’s article: It Is true that Messrs. Fitch and Pickering have remitted large amounts of money to Mr. Siinonton—hut what for T To speculate in stocks ami to take advantage of the panic, which they strove to make as disastrous as possible. The Associated Press dispatches, of which we have complained, were pur posely used to affect the Stock Market In New York, and this can be proved. Simonton admits that his partners wore sending him money at the time be was advising them that the bank would fail. We believe that he lies when he says that not a word ot “these premonitions” was given to the public until after the failure. We recollect that the Commercial Advertiser, in New York, one of Simonton’s recent mouthpieces, predicted trouble in Cal ifornia two or three days before the failure. We can satisfactorily show v that a deep-laid conspiracy was made to break the bank; that the Bulletin and Call were the tools of the parties operating for a mutual interest, and if there was one “staunch friend” of those Journals among the directors of the bank, we can point out the reason of such friendship, and the probable treason that was committed, as well as also the motive of It. We are only be ginning to get at the bottom of this great trouble, and when the truth is all told, the most damnable conspiracy over ooncooted and the most wicked treason will lie brought to light. How did Mr. Simonton know in May last that the bank was on the brink of failure T If he knew it, who told him T If he knew it, why did the Bulletin and Call strike at the credit of the bank T We brand Mr. Simonton as one of the worst scoundrels that ever dis graced journalism. !■* Bank of Nevada will open on Monday, October 4th, at 10 o'clock a. m.

Governor Bradley on (ho Situation. Having made public, from the Car son Appeal, Warden Hyman’s version of the troubles at tho State Prison, we now, in justice to all sides, give place to the following letter trom Governor Bradley, which appeared in the Enter prise of the 22d: Elko, Sept. 20, 1875. Editor Enterprise: Your paper of the l'Jth instant, containing an article headed “Strange Proceedings at the State Prison,” copied from the Carson Appeal, lias reached me. There are some things in that article that will not be fully understood by the public with out some explanation. You say “Governor Bradley recom mended Miller to Mr. Hyman as a worthy arid competent person for a guard at the p Ison, and ou the strength of that recommendation Miller was appointed.” The public wouid infer from this that Mr. Hyman had the appointment of the prison guards, and doing me a lav or by giving a place to an applicant on my recommendation. Now, under the law, the Warden is the servant— the Foreman of the Board of State Prison Commissioners. They appoint or discharge him and all o her em ployes at pleasure. Samuel Miller, an active, pitelligent young man, applied to me for employment, and, witli the concurrence of General Kittrell, he was appointed a guard. Some time alter ms appointment lie came to my office and said be wanted a private interview. I had tlie doorclosed, and called Mr. Garrard, my seer tary, to hear w liai Miller had to say. Hn told me that since he had been guard at tlie State Prison he had satisfied hitn-elf that Mr. Hyman, tlie Warden, wasstealimi from the State; that lie had learned a good deal, and could, he thought, learn much more, and asked for in structions on the subject. Believing, as I have for a long time, that Hyman was using his position to rob tlie Statu, and having failed in many efforts to have him removed from tlie Warden ship of the State Prison, I directed Miller to gain what information be could, and report to me when present, and to my Secretary during my ab sence. Miller, as I am informed, contin ued to report according to my instruc tions until he was discharged by the Warden. During tlie last Legislature (in Feb ruary, I believe,) a special committee was appointed by each hnu-e, who formed themselves into a Joint Com mittee, to examine into tlie manage ment of the State Prison affairs. They took the testimony of a large number of witnesses, and the Joint Committee found up to that time "the management had been strictly honest and economical.” They also reported that “the testi mony taken relating to other charges investigated by tlie committee is too voluminous to admit of being digested in this report.” They therefore recommended to the Senate “that tlie evidence taken and herewith submitted be turned over to the Board of State Prison Commis sioners, anti that the same he by them printed in pamphlet form for distribu tion.” The majority of the board have ig nored this injunction of the Senate, and have positively refused to print the evidence. Tlie charges referred to ill tlie latter part of the report above mentioned are two: First—Thil the food furnished the prisoners was inferior in quality and deficient in quantity. Second—That the Warden, P. C. Hyman, has taken ad vantage of tlie helpless condition ol ihe only female prisoner under liis charge; had moved tier from tlie cell site occupied w hen he took charge of the priion to iiis own quarters, and had kept her as his mistress for the last eighteen months previous to the investigation. On the first proposition there was much conflicting evidence. On the second proposition there was but little room for doubt. Some of the ablest lawyers and clear est headed jurists of the State, botli oil and on the Committee of Investigation, have examined the subject, and be lieve the Warden guilty of tlie charge. Had this testimony been laid before the people, as desired by the Senate, a just public indignation would have de manded and forced the removal of the Warden long ago. As Governor of the State, the people expeet, and have a right to expect, of me a close watch over the inter, sis of the State. Being powerless, as a member of the State Prison Board, to remove an offloer that I assisted in appo uting, and whom I bavef >ucd unfit fir Ids du ties, I sought evidence by which 1 could take the case before another tribu nal. Hence, when Millor ottered his services, I did not hesitate to instruct him|lo proofed and report. As to his carrying letters to and from prisoners, I know nothing wbat ever; hut In his efforts to expose the dishonesty of a State officer be had my full approbation. I.. R. Bradley.

The train from the east this morning, says the Elko Independent of the 22d, had on board Dan. Smith,a noted stage robber, and a woman named Jenny Montgomery, who accompanied him In his flight from Oregon, where Smith made Ills last haul some months ago. The interesting pair were in charge oi special detective J.B.Underwood.ofthe Postothee Department, from whom we obtained the following facts in relation to his charge: Smit h robbed a stage in Oregon some monihs ago, and succeeded in eluding the olfii-ers. Underwood Anally got upon bis track and quietly followed up the trail from State to state until Ills quarry was finally run to cover a few days ago In the obscure village of Se lf11'*!, Texas. The placets far removed troui all the lines of railroad aud | telegraph and here the pm sued doubt less to it secure, bill however secret Ins movements, the keen eye of the detec tive still discovered traces sufficient lo guide hint in liits determined and per sistent chase, and Smith is, alter all his strenuous efforts, involuntarily on his way to the scenes of It is depredations. The woman, Jenny Montgomery, was, it appears, a married woman, and abandoned Iter husband in Oregon to follow the fortunes of Smith. The prisoner is in the prime of life, hearty and robust, and judging from his per sonnel would prove a formidable ad versary in a physical contest. His chances of escape, however, were rath er slim, from the fact that three officers, including Underwood, attended him, and as a measure of additional safety a shackle and heavy chain was attached to his leg. We have understood that Smith at one time drove stage in Kast ern Nevada. A certificate of increase of capital stock of the Savage Mining Company has been filed.
