Ho 88 TiaiK to tiik II ills.—The noble Shoshone has a wholesome dread of water even for ablulionary purposes, and when it comes to a flood his head is eminently level ill getting out of tlie way. I»«y before yesterday, when the water was pouring down the canyon, all the Indians were making tracks up the hill east of town, and they never stopped ur.til they had reached the crest, live hundred feet alaive high water mark; and yester day, when the black clouds com menced to gai her about the brow of Prospect mountain, the noble red man and woman pointed their moccasins in the same direction, and while the storm was threatening there wasn't a buck or squaw to be sene in tho town. “phuckmont. — Report* from the Sprucemont mine still further confirm the rich strike there.

A law recently enacted by Congress red noes the postage on transient news papers and magazines nearly one-half. The following is section 15 of the aot: That transient newspapers and mag azines, regular publications designed primarily for advertising purposes, or for free circulation at nominal rates, and all printed matter of the third class except unsealed circulars, shall be admitted to, and be transmitted in, the mails at the rate ot one cent for every two ounces or fractional part thereof, and one cent for each two ad ditional two ouncos or fractional part thereof; and the sender of any article of the third-class of mail matter may write his or her name or address there in, or on the outside thereof, with the word “from” above or preceding the same, or may write briefly or print on any package the number and names of the articles inclose:!. Publishers of newspapers and periodicals may print on the wrappers of newspapers or magazines sent from the office of pub lication to regular subscribers the time to which subscription therefor has been paid, and addresses upon postal cards and unsealed circulars nay be either written, printed, or ’affixed thereto, at the option of the sender. On unsealed circulars and all mall abie matter of the third-class, other than that designated in the above, post age will be charged as heretofore, one cent for each ounce or fraction thereof. It is also made unlawful to convey by mail, or to deposit ill a Postoffice to be sent by mail, any letters or circulars concerning lotteries, so-cailed gift con certs, or other similar enterprises offer ing prizes, or concerning schemes de vised and intended to deceive and de fraud the public for the purpose of ob taining money under false pretenses, and a penalty of not more than $.">00. nor less than $100, with cost of prose cution, is imposed upon conviction, in any Federal Court, of tho violation of the law in this respect. A FIXE XATIUXAL XVOUIi. No doubt that all ot us would like to visit tbe Centennial show, but most of us will have to wait and hope that we inav lie better fixed in 1970. Next to viewing it ourselves is the pleasure of seeing it through other eyes, eyes that are trained to discover marked excel lence in objects that we might pass with scarcely a glauce; many publica tions have been ojmmenced to render this service, but, until to-day, we Lave not seen one that we would be willing to accept as a guide in understanding whatever is most worthy to be pre served for future profit and pleasure. The werk in question is entitled "The Illustrated Catalogue of the Centennial International Inhibition;” It is pub lished by (ielibie and Harrie, of Phila delphia, whose names aloneare a guar antee that it is first class in every par licular. Its editor in chief Is Kd ward Strahan, formerly fine arts editor for Harper Pros., ol New York city. He is assisted by an able corps of special editors in the several departments ol literature, mechanics, painting and an Liquifies; it is issued in semi in nitlily mini tiers of about forty pages, and will bo completed in fifty numbers; each number will contain at least one steel engraving, besides the numerous wood cuts with explanatory texts to each. It is sold only by subscription, for fifty cents per copy. Alphonse ilawkes, the agent, in forms us that he has already se cured a goodly number of subscribers, including many of our most intellectual citizens. H is his intention to thor oughly canvas the town, and we hope that those who enjoy an artistic and literary feast will not fail to add their names to ilia list. * Will Not Shut Down.—Alluding to a rumor published in the Skntinel last week to the effect that the mines and reduction works of the Tybo Con solidated Mining Company either had or wotdd shut down in consequence of the low price of silver, the Belmont Courier of last .Saturday says: The same rumor was current in Belmont. We understand there is no foundation for such rumor, the furnace* running us usual, and Hint the company never was in * more prosperous condition than at the present time, save and ex cept, of course, the heavy discount on silver. Foil thk Black Hills.—“ Lobster Jack,” sometimes nicknamed J. New man, having closed up his business here in town, left on Monday morn ing's train for the Black Hills. He said he was tired of doing business where he had to lake trado dollars at par, and was going where gold is the cir culating medium and \\ hereliiere is no depreciated currency. There are many worse fellows than Jack, and wo hope ho will strike pay grit, ax-bandlo deep, with the bedrock pitching like tlio roof of a gothic cottage. New Stake Link to Belmont.—On and after next Monday Wilson's Eu reka and Austin stage will conned al the Willows with Htnncharger's Bel mont line. The stage leaves here every Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, and returning, leaves Aus tin every Tuesday, Thursday and Sat urday mornings. The road is well stocked and every attention will be paid to the comfort of passengers. See advertisement under the h ad of •* Now To-Day.” Indicted and Arrested.—George Watkins, the young man who was en gaged in the shooting scrape at the lower hurdy-bouso on the night of the Fourth of July, was indicted yesterday by the Grand Jury for t-ssault with in tent to kill. He was arrested last night by Deputy Sheriff Sam Bell. Sa/.ehac Chop Stand. — W. H. Walker lias taken the chop stand in the Sazerae saloon. He isan accomplished nook and caterer, and w ill run the in stitution “ up to the. handle,” keeping everything that can be procured in the market and serving it up in first-class style. False Report.—There was a report on the streets yesterday that Kilby Hill had boon visited by another flood. It was entirely without foundation, and was doubtless started bv some mem ber of the Damphool Infirmary. Letter List.—We publish to-day the Eureka l'ostollioe letter list. THE BLACK HILLS. Bob Meinke Declares the Whole Thing a brand Hnmbng. Fort Laramie, Wyoming Territory, 1 July 17th, 1876. } To Cbas. Kramer, Eureka: Dear Charles: I have been in Chey enne a few days ago, and met there “ Batcher Joe,” and as I found him too full with lager and Cheyenne lightning-rod, I could get no particu lars out of him regarding the country. I left the Balck Hills to go to Denver, for this tine gold country is the big gest humbug known. Myself and others could make nothing there. There are a few claims in Deadwood gulch that are paying well, but the most are only paying Irish dividends. Those there are mostly “ tender feet” from theStates, who think moreofflve cents than we do of £20. 1 could write you volumes of the miseries of that country, how thousands including myself wore fooled. I have never heard of a country that is so much cursed and condemned as this infer nal Black Hills country. Breweries, saloons, gambling dens and soiled doves can not make a living there. This infamous excitement was only gotten up by the hungry beasts on the railroad to make capital out of it. As soon as I will be able to dispense of my small stock of liquors I shall surely leave this God-forsaken coun try in double-quick time. Robert Meinke. PKWtOSAL. We had the pleasure last evening, for the first time in several years, of agitating the dexter fin of our old-time friend John Croylaud, who had just arrived from Pioche. He left this morning for fcan Francisco, where he intends making his future home. J. M. Knglisli and J. B. McGee, President and Director of the Tybo Consolidated Company, arrived last evening from Tybo and left on this morning’s train for !San Francisco. They state that everything is flourish ing at Tybo; that the mine is looking well and the furnancos turning out the usual amount of bullion. The report that the works were to be closed down was entirely without foundation. Attorney John P. Kelly,of Pioche,ar rived in town last evonlng and left on this morning’s train for San Fran cisco, Keep it Clean.—Notwithstanding the big scare it gave our people, the flood day before yesterday was not without its good effects. It purified the big ditch by cleaning it of the debris and filth which had accumulated in it for the last year, and it is to be hoped that now that it is in a decent condition it will be kept so daring the balance of the season. It lias heretofore been the receptacle for all the discarded articles, slops and dirt from many of the houses in its vicinity; and in one instance, at least, a householder on Spring street outraged his neighborhood by causing to lie emptied into it the contents of the vault of his outhouse. The town being unincorporated perhaps there are no legal restrictions upon the people in this particular, but a sense of decency and a proper regard for cleanliness should deter them from making a nuis ance of what was constructed for the safety of the town. We might as well lie drowned by a flood as die from cholera or some other disease gener ated I mm the tilth deposited in the safety canal. Adam’s Hill.— Hero is an official account, of the condition of the Adams Hill mine. Tho statement is made by Superintendent Powell to the San Francisco office, under date of the 18lli instant: “Not finding ore in paying quantities in the levels above the 300, wo have stopped all work above that point, and have reduced the foreo to six men, besides the contractors. These men are employed in the 300-foot level, drifting north on the vein, which looks favorable for opening into a paying body of ore very soon. We are re ducing expenses as much as possible.” -. ♦ Thk Picnic Ykstkkday.—The an nual picnic of the Sunday school of St. James’ Church came off yesterday at Monroe’s ranch, and was largely at tended. Hots of good things were pro vided and the picnickers had a good time although a shower of rain came on somewhat inopportunely and ended the festivities earlier than was in tended. Thk Only Victim.—Ah Chung, tho only one injured during the late flood, was brought in from tho wood camp, 18 miles distant, in Diamond valley, last night. One of his arms is badiy broken and liis right tlugh seriously injured, losing therefrom, as the Chi nese doctor informed us, “ about two pounds of meat.” The chances for the poor fellow’s recovery are slim. No Eastern Mail.—Owing to the washout on the Central Pacific rail road east of Elko, no Eastern mail readied this place yesterday morning. A double mail will doubtless be on de livery at the Poalofflce this morniug. Lost.—A plain gold ring, in the vi cinity of the Sentinel office. The lost article having been a present the loser will pay an ample reward for its return to him at this office. Held for Postaue.—The following letter is held at the Postofflce, in Eu reka, for the want of postage: tireon Martin, Idaho City, Idaho Territory. The National Hoard will be excused from not turning out in uniform until by order of their Captain, C. H. IIddmard.
