Tbecompaign has ojiened and an army with captains and with banners displayed ban taken up its position for the contest. Tbe ball has opened and the first couple has waltsed into the ring. Tbe army is tbe party of “Na tional Prohibitionists,” and the chosen leaders and aspirants for terpsichorean honors are Green Clay Smith, of Ken tucky, and one G. T. Stewart, of Oilier. Who Mr. Stewart uiay be we do not know, though not'knowing him be to confess ourselves unknown. But Green Clay Smith was at the commencement of tbe war a Brigadier General of vol unteers, and for some years a Repub lican member of Congress from Ken tucky, and was (and we presume is) a gentleman of considerable social dis tinction. His ways of life, however, must have somewhat changed if lie is to-day a fit exponent of the following declaration of priuciples pat forth by his party: They ask for prohibition in the Dis trict of Columbia and in States and Territories, and in every other place subject to tbe laws of Congress; they regard the trade in alcoholic beverages as a high crime against society and ask tbe adoption of treaty stipulations -with foreign powers to prevent trade in such beverages. They ask for the abolition of class legislation; equal suffrage and universal equality; the reduction of internal foreign postage; suppression ot lotteries, gold stock and produce gambling; the abolition of those foul enormities, polygamy and the social evil, and the protection of the purity, peace and happiness homes by ample and efficient legisla tion; the national observance of the Christian Sabbath; demand free pub lic schools and the free use of the Bible In the public schools; an unsectarian school fund; international arbitration; prison reform; abolition of executive and legislative patronage; a direct vote for President; a liberal policy toward emigrants; that the National Govern in-nt only should exercise the high prerogatives of issuing paper money, and that it should be subject to prompt redemption on demand in gold and silver; the reduction of salaries of pub lie officers; the abolition of unneces sary officials and official fees and per quisites; the strictest governmental economy, and free and full investiga tion Now that is a platform at a platform should be. If they bad only inserted a plank in favor of the immediate in auguration of tbe millenium and nom inated Miss Anthony for the second place on the ticket, we would have af forded the Prohibitionista our earnest support. . ■ ■ w- ■» .i ■ i ■ THE KANNAE DEMOCRACY. We are to-day in receipt of a portion of the proceedings of the Kansas Dem ocratic State Convention. The plat form, we are informed, was built solely upon the financial issue; but the key note to the temper of the convention oil that important question is not given us. The dispatch states that the resolutions demand "an immediate act for the resumption of specie pay ments.” Now, an act is already in force providing for resumption Jan uary 1, 1879. It can not be that the convention demanded resumption be fore that day, when all authorities de clare that it will be practically iinpot sible even then! They probably de manded—what the telegraph failed to give us—either “an immediate repeal of the act,” etc., or “an immediate amendment of the act,” etc.; such amendment to so extend the time of the operation of the law as to render it feasible and induce bona fide resump tion. In the light of the recent abom ination promulgated at Cincinnati by the Democrats of Ohio, we fear the former; but In view of the fact that Governor Hendricks, whose views in favor of hard mouey are well known, we incline to the opinion that the Kan sas Democracy look to specie as a cur rency and only to suoh amendments of the presont law as will forward the good cause. Our Philadeij*hia Lutter.—We publish today a letter from "J. P. B.,” our Centennial correspondent. The first of the series, dated on the 10th instant, also came to hand yesterday, but it had been so long on the road we concluded to give preference to the communication of the latest date. Laid Over.—We received yesterday a communication from our local cor respondent, C. L., addressed, “To our Delegates to the St. Louis Convention." An excess of other matter precluded its appearance to day, but It will be pub lished lu our next issue. Dr. Mart Walker is telling the people of the East that she “ narrowly escaped death at the hands of the gam blers of Virginia City,” and that “ if American girls in Baa Francisco are not closely watched, many of them will marry Chinamen.” There is no fear of any man—Mongolian or Caucasian '—wanting to marry Dr. Mary Walker. —Virpima Chronicle. The Iediam Bureau.—If the opin ions of Senator Allison, telegraphed to us to-day concerning the temper of the Senate on the question of the transfer of the Indian Bureau to the War De partment be well founded, a most la mentable condition of affairs is pre sented to us. There is no need for our enlarging upon tbe economy, the ad visability, indeed the necessity of the measure. All people, of both parties, residing west of the Missouri,are agreed upon tbe question. We are now told that it may be defeated in the Senate, because, forsooth, Senators are loth to forego their patronage, and because the Secretary of the Inlerior, who, while in tbe Senate, favored it, and who was. by the President, appointed to the Cab inet after being rejected by bis own party as Senator, has now seen fit to change front and oppose the stop which he formerly earnestly advocated. Pabsenokks from San Francisco, says the Carson Tribune, report an excit ing incident that occurred on the boat bound for Vallejo. It appears that a crazy man was being conveyed to Stockton, and that during the absence of the officer having him in charge, he succeeded In getting free from his chains; after which he jumped over board. Instantly the cry ol “Man overboad ! ” was echoed throughout the boat, and all was excitement. Con querable delay was experienced in getting a boat down; in the meantime the lunatic, who was an expert swim mer, was striking out for dear life, and succeeded in getting a distance of over a mile from the steamer before the boat readied him. He was hauled in to the boat, and was not the least scared or fatigued from his adventure. The Indianapolis Convention.— The individuals recently convened at Indiannpolis and styling themselves the Independent National Greenback party, have been very properly snub lied by Senator Booth. They tele graphed him a request to accept a nomination from them—whether as President or Vice President, our dis patch does not make clear. Mr. Booth replies curtly that be is not in accord with their general views, and that he had only not declined their nomina tion but he had not conceived it worthy of notice. Louisiana.—Perhaps that Louisiana horror will not amount to much after all. In spite of Governor Kellogg's agonized cry for help it appears that he and a great portion of the execu tive power ot his State remains in Washington, probably on some lob bying scheme intent; but in any eveut absent from the scene of disturbance, where his presence and that of the offi cials now with him might restore or der without any necessity for an appeal for aid to the Federal military author ities. Of course neither cowardice nor remissness of duty could keep so worthy an officer from the scene of ac tion. It must be that affsirs are not as serious as they have been represented. CENTENNIAL CORREMPONDENCE OF THE MENTINEL. Philadelphia, May 12, 1876. Editors Sentinel: In our last we attempted to present to your readers an account of the opening ceremonies, and having thus broken ground, we will now endeavor to give them some idea of tiieexhibition itself. It is on so vast a scale, and of such incomprehen sible magnitude, that it is utterly im possible to see it, even superficially, in less than a month, at least, and if one wishes to thoroughly master it and learn ail about it that can be learned, he had better just conclude to remain here as long as it continues open, and even then he will have failed to attain his object. One cannot obtain an adequate idea ef its proportions without being on the ground and seeing with his own eyes. When we are told that the main build ing, for example, is 1,880 feet, or more than a third of a mile, long; that it is 464 feet in width, and that it covers over 20 acres of ground, it seems large; and when we consider that there are about 170 buildings of all kinds on the grounds, the Centennial Exposition seems a big thing; but when we come to the grounds and see tor ourselves, we have to confess that our former ideas of its magnitude were wholly In atieu lisle. It will be seen, then, that the only way to decribe it is to lake it up by de partments, discussing each one separ ately; and accordingly we will begin with tbe United States Government building, as it is perhaps the nearest ready of all. This building is located 1101th of Macbiusry Hall and a little west of north of the main entrance to the grouoda. It ia built of wood and glaes, and Is painted on the outside a yellowish, hospital color. As the visi tor approaches the front of this build ing he will be attracted by a display or instruments of war peacefully reposing before it, being rather too Urge to be placed inside. At tbe right of the en trance, as he goes in, he will see a huge. 20-inch Rod man gun, tbe weight of which U 115,000 pounds, and which is tired with a charge of 200 pounds or powder, and a hall weighing 1,080 pounds; doubtless tbe old fellow could do considerable damage. There are a good many other guns lying around here, both Urge and small. At the left U a fac simile of a monitor revolv ing turret with two 15 inch guns Inside. They don’t leave much room to walk around in it. Entering the building the first thing I hat attracts the attention Is the machinery tiiat is clattering away on the right, in the place devoted to tbe War Department. An Inspec tian reveals tbe fact that these me* chines are manufacturing cartridge*; each cartridge going through a great many operations before it is turned out complete. The machines are tended by women. Farther to the right are machines turning out muskets, and machines of various kiuds abound. There is a very complete exLl >itiun of the work of the War Depart ment. There are arms and atn tnuiiiion of every kind; all the instruments and implements made use ol by any connected with the army; there is an exposition of the signal service: there are models of river ini • pioveuients, and arsenals, and light houses, etc.; there are wax figures rep re-eiiting United Slates soldiers in va rious uniforms ol the several period* of our history; among which is that of a minute man of ’70. who holds in his hand a musket used at the battle of Blinker Hill. There is also a small square devoted to the horse, that use ful animal without which campaigns would be but sorry art'airs, showing forth specially tiie right and wrong methods of treating the horse’s feet. The War Department has also a couple of buildings to one side of the large building, the nearest one being a shooting gallery for the ex]>eriilleii'.s with regard to the volocity of projec tiles, and the other a held hospital. Across the main aisle from the War Department, and to the left as you go iu, is located the exhibit of the Depart ment of the Navy. The display here is necessarily much the same as in the War Department, though very many things are altogether different, and there are some tilings not pertaining to the army at all, as marine engines and instruments of navigation. Several Urge torpedoes are very noticeable. Both the army and navy spaces have oil exhibition portraits of secretaries and distinguished commanders of their respective departmeiits, and both are ornamented with (lags. Beyond the space of the Navy De partment is the display of the Post office Department. This is, of course, not. large, but vvliat there is of it is very unique. There is a collection of stamps, official and other envelopes, etc., and specimens of mail hags and boxes; hut the tiling which attracts the most attention is a machine for, making stamped envelopes. This al most equals ihe celebrated Yankee sausage machine—a live bog cast into one end of which comes out of the other in the shape of crooked sau sages. Here a pile of pieces of paper is placed at the end of the machine and it takes ilicm up one bv one, hiuI in a twinkling ttiey are convicted into folded, pasted and stamped envelopes. The postage stamp on them is a new centennial device. There is also in this department a complete postoffice in operation, where even money or ders may be obtained. But we must reserve the rest of the United Slates building tor a future letter, amt will close with a little Nevada gossip: John Shaw and wife, of ICureka, are here and to day were inspecting the New Fngland kitchen with its old fashioned girls and cooking arrange ments. Mr. Stevenson ariyed a nay or two ago to look after the Nevada quartz mill, the work on which is being hurried up. Still it will be some time before it is in run ning order. Its location is not very lavorabte for Inspection, as it is situ ated in an out of the way place where visitors seldom go; so that not many except those particularly interested will he likely to see it. The headquarters building of Cali forma and Nevada is l>eing put into shape very rapidly, hut work was commenced on it so late that it will hardly be ready for occupancy before the month of J line. Mr. Mighels, of Carson, made a fly ing vi'it with the Congressional party, and was here oil the day of the open ing exercises, the guest while in the City of Col. Joe McKibben, of tbe Girard. Geo. Merrill, of Eureka, was also here for the opening day. Inn lolt yes terday for a visit to the New England States. He intends returning when tbe arrangaments for seeing all tiie sights of the centennial are in belter slisfie. We saw Adolph Sutro inspecting the grounds to day m front of the N«v ula building, perhaps with a view to locale a tunnel site. He sa.VH he will soon be taking out ore at Sutro from the big bonanza. The representation from Nevada i* rather slim so far, but dnubiles many before long will make their appear ance, as a visit here during the exhibi tion is well worth the trip to any one who can possibly afford the excuse of coudug. J. I. U. WHITE PINK INTKI.MttKNCE. Condonsod from the Nows. Arrkstkd. — George Mayfield, the man who was reported to have boen shot, killed and buried, was arrested last Sunday at Blackburn's ranch, on the Hamilton and Pioche mad. by Eu gene Blair. Wells, Fargo A Co's mes senger, and brought by him to this place and bulged in jail. Mayfield is suspected of being the party who nr dered the stage-driver to “throw off that box,’’ four miles south of Sheep Hunch, on the night of the 12th in slant. The reason of his being sus pected is. that be had been beating about that vicinity for several days. He will have an examination before Justice Buok next Monday. Quickkr Time.—The new arrange ments of Gilmer A .Salisbury’s stage lines were commenced last Monday. Hereafter the stages arriving here from Bureka writ remain only long enough to unload the passengers, mails and freight for Hamilton and then proceed immediately to Pioche. The same ar rangement is made witli the passengers and mails going from Pioche to Eu reka. This change should uiake a gain of one day to passengers traveling to and from Pioche to the railroad. Pas senger* having business in Hamilton will now be compelled to lay over one day. Gonk Into BustNUbs.—Our stirring fellow citizens, Marcus Schultz, has gone into the pork business. He has formed a copartnership with the influ ential and industrious Chinaman named Charley Putup. Marcus is to furnish all the brains for the concern, and Charlay Is to do all the work and furnish the"capital. The firm led here on Monday last, on foot, for Currant Creek, where they expect to purchase a large number of porkers. They will make their first drive to Eureka fora market. Fbrsonau—R. Sadler and wife came over from Eureka the first part of the week and remained here several days. I Mr. Sadler attended to bis mercantile affairs, and Mrs. Sadler had a pleasant time visiting her lady friends.Thor. Daspeyre, E-q., of Eureka, came over on Tuesday last to attend to some legal business in the District Court, and made many new friends during his short sojourn. Failed to Agree.—The jury in the ca«e of the Mary Ann vs. the Pacific Mining Company, who were deliberat ing on a verdict last Friday afternoon when we went to press, after being out tw ■ntv-fonr hours, failed to agree. We h ive heard various rumors, but have no positive information at to bow the jury stood. Fruit Crop Destroyed.— It Is said that the severe cold weather in Carson night before last destroyed the embryo fruit crop in that section, the apple and p*ach trees being in full blossom.— Enterprise. EASTERN DISPATCHES. fcy Overland Telegraph. _ (MPKOIAI. TO TMK DAILY aKNTlISKL.] I list n nations nml Invewtlarntlwna 4'ontiuueil—I'roltabillties of Ad journment. New York, May 19. The World declares that the charges recently made against Bristow in rela tion to the mule contract are re-echoed. The World publishes the charges and specifies one in full, and adds that it ia said I lint tlie case is undergoing a very thorough lint a private investigation by tlie Democratic members of the House of Representatives, and that the intention is to keep tlie results very close until it is seen whether Bristow , who was ilie principal in tlie case, is nominated at Cincinnati, and that if lie is tlie whole limiter will lie brought out before (lie public. Whether this is true or not it would be well for Bris tow to make public a complete and authentic history of I is relation to it, and to explain certain rumors which are current. The investigation Into tlie affairs of the Government Insane Asylum is not so barren of results as some friends of liiat institution predicted. It is shown that Dr. Nichols wrote that Mrs. Van krew ought not to receive a pension,as she never sent clothing or comforts lo her son in tile asylum. Side by side with this letter are a dozen of receipts from her of clothing, dainties, neces saries, etc., signed by Nichols himself. D is now thought that the I, lui'iana Committee will be detained at New Orleans three times as long as was at first thought. The Tribune's Washington special saw: 1; is absolutely impossible to adjourn and finish all the business before the House hv the 12th of June. In the Seriate matters are still further behind, where the impeachment tptes tion has not been considered by favor ers of an adjournment. Besides it is understood that the majority in the Senate w ill not agree to the joint reso lution for adjournment. Itepnhlii-t'ii* have no idea of going away from Wash ington and allowing the scandal com mittee in send to the country during the campaign its reports without the oppon unity being otTered to me* t ami explain them, oHicially if nece-ary. A prominent Democratic Senator, who has had excellent opport unities to learn the temper of ihe (Senate, ex pressed the opinion last evening that Congress would not adjoin it before the 12th of August. The misunderstanding between Ed mundsaud Cenkling, still unhealed, is said to have broken nut afresh and with increased bitterness during the impeachment trial. Koine Isiulatnnn Suggestions. The Herald's Washington sfieeial nays a good deal of remark Is occa sioned by the fact that while according to Governor Kellogg there are serious disturbances in Louisiana, so grave as to lead him to urgently demand Fed eral interference, he not only re mains here but has with him,spending their time in Washington, Wharton, the Adjutant General of the Stale; A vres, ibo Deputy United States Mar shal, and the Clerk of Ihe Metropoli tan Police force, which the Governor eat) use at will in anv part of Lotus! ana; and tiiidger, Chief of Police. Another Impeachment Threatened. If tho Senate shall deride that it ha* jurisdiction, Chandler Intends in re commend to the House the impeach ment of Thompson, one of his predo i-essor*, who vvas Secretary of the Inte rior before the war. It is said lie is preparing the case from the records of public document* and investigation* had by Congress ntterward*. This allows that Thompson. Secretary ol the Interior, abstracted more than 9700,000 of public motley in the best securities and exchanged them f >r the individual notes of contractor*, and that was the laat the Government ever had of that immense sum, virtually lima stolen from the public treasury. Chanter saya Thompson is now living and is wealthy enough to be amply able to repay the amount to the Gov ernment and should be made to do so. Who Shell Control the Indiana? Senator Allison doubts the passage by the Senate of the bill transf rirung the Indian Bureau to the War Depart ment. No canvass lias yet been ihade, but Chandler, while in the Senate, was favorable and now is hostile, and the Senators al*o are disinclined to give up that share of patronage. That Vaqnero Wauls to Try Again. Nkw York, Mav HO. Gen. Parker, the California rider, is rapidly recovering his sight and is anx ious to make another trial of endur ance. Hand, the owner of the mustangs. Is arranging for another match which will probably cotne off some day next week. Latest From the Black Hills—Move ment of Troops—Hostile Indians —Mining Proa poets. Chkyknnb, May 19. The last two com panics of the Second Cavalry for Crook’s expedition, left Fort Bussell this morning. All will cross the liver at Fort Laramie, march ing up the north side to Fort Fetter man; to be joined there by the troops which leave the railroad at Medicine Bow; the whole force reaching Fort Fetterman about Wednesday morning, when Colonel Koyall.ot the Tl.lrd Cav alry, will take command, under Crook, of the entire force. At the first halting place last night five desertions occurred, the men tak ing their horses and equipments. The latest arrivals from the Black Hills to-day, Alderman Nea!on and J. I). May, of this city, report meeting Raymond’s outfit on Indian Creek, and that they were then engaged in a tight with the Indians. The Indians succeeded in cnpturing thirty-five tiead of stock when they were driven off. They met about 400 men, with 80 wacons, northward bound at Hot Creek, where Captain Kean’s company had also halted. Reaving Hot Creek they rode into Fort Raramie unmo lested. The gentlemen are reliable au thority, and stale that on Whitewood and I lead wood creeks Hie claims ere being successfully worked, yielding from ?I0 lo $;i0 to the man; but*beyond this district the hostility rod oft re peated attacks of tlie Indiana on pros, peclors lias almost paralyzed the ef forts of tlie miners. Governor Tltaver departed eastward to day, to secure, if possible, additional troops to protect this frontier during tlie absence of the garrison forces in the Rig Horn country; or, failing in tills, at least lo procure arms snd am munition for a military organization. Kansas Democratic Ntato Conven tion. Topeka. May 19. Tlie Democratic S ate Convention which met iiere yesterday was the largest ever convened in this State. Amos Harris was made president. The Committee on Resolutions reported in favor of no bank issue by the United Stales or State authorities; that the Government supply tlie paper needed in the shape of greenbacks; demands an immediate act providing for the re sumption of sjiecte payment, and in structs delegates to veto for Hendricks. No subject whatever M as touched upon in the platlorm but tlie financial ques tion. The con vent ijn reached a vote on tlie platform and adopted it about midnight by a vote of 18*2 to 104, in cluding the instructions for Hend ricks. The following were elected dolega'es at large: Kx Gov. Wilson, Stannard C. lilair and Isaac Katon J. W.

An acquaintance of Senator Booth asked him hv telegraph from Indian apolis yesterday if lie would acceptthe • Jreenhack Converlion’s nomination for the presidency, and he replied, "No; I hope my name will not he mentioned as a eandidate.” The only informa tion lie lias yet received of his nomina tion as Vice President is from the newspapers. He says tie does not in tend to pay any attention to it, not re garding it as a matter worthy of s|teci>il notice. He says there are only two points of accord in his financial views anil tliose ot the convention, namely: That I'nited Stales legal lender notes should be substituted for all National Bank notes, and that the easiest way to bring them up to a gold standard and provide for their redemption is through incontrovertible 3.65 bonds— a system which he has ltetelofore ad vocated. _ PACIFIC COAST DISPATCHES.

At II o’clock last night O’Leary completed his 3<2d mile and Mcliiiath! his 254th. This leaves O’lcary 12H miles to walk in 25 hours. A H;»lrrlvu» Alhlr in Nan I'raia* risen. San Francisco, May 20. Mrs. John G. May, age I about 70 vears, U.e I a lew days ago and was buried a tew hours after death. [>r. K. L. Plnuhing, who attended her, re ported at the Health tulle** that site died ot old age and intii mities. Some circumstances led to tlie helielThat tlie matter needed investigation and officer* were detailed to work it up, who brought t" light tlie following fact*: About noon la't Saturday Joint F. Lang, a locksmith at 1.824 Hoik street, was requested to visit the dwelling No. I.JOo Larkin street, and open a door. He found the door in question locked witli the key on the inside. He soon succeeded in turning tlie bolt of the lock, opening tlie door, when lie was horrified to see an elderly woman ly ing upon tlie fliMir of the Iratli room, fully dressed, with her throat cut from ear to ear, and near her leet lay a carv ing kmfn besmeared with blood, with which tlie deed had been done. To all apearancea tlie woman was dead. Mr. Lang, however, rai-ed her head a no summoned ihehoii-elinid. Hr. Pinch ing was sent for. He found on exam ination that the woman was not dead, and witli tlie assistance ol the lock smith tlie wounds were stitched to gether, tlie operation occupying about an hour. During the prnce.s of dress ing tlie wound tlie patient moved sev eral limes, but did not appear lo lie conscious. About 1 o’clock Sunday night Mrs. May died and was buried next day. The inmates of the house where the body was found were the husband of deceased, John G. May, a lady whose name is not given, and a girl. Mr. Lang suggested that the police authorities be notified oi the circum stance to avoid trouble, blit he was re quested not to mention the matter to any one. it appears (hat tlie husband of deceased is s wealthy gentleman retired from business, and that lie humored his wife in every wish. It 1* slated by neighbors of the family that Mrs. May visited the Mpison street Synagogue Saturday morning, and that for some time site has been laboring under aberration of mind. Another story is thal she was not on friend?! terms with her ilaughter-iu-law. ° 7 The Weather at Virginia City Verdict of Murder. ..
