WMNEaDAYrrT0CTOBEltT8.l878 „,»» AM A HEMOM8T. There must be • broad streak of dry hoaaor running through the composition Wren. At all event, ba displayed something of this trait in his IFrr-y delivered at the Opera House Mon day ewaltl* There Was also a perceptible •aterap of withering sarcasm in Us re Marhi- faming to the long list of Vice Presidents seated on the stage, be spoke substantially as follows: “East month the Jlepohllcan State Convention was held in Eureka. Eureka was overlooked by that body hi tba distribution of offices, but I am that many Enrekans have been honored With positions^ to-night.” Continuing in the same guod-natured spirit, the honor able gentleman further said: “In the days of the ancients a wise man came from the East. On this occasion the wise men hail from the West.” Those who remained long enongh to hear Kinkead, Hammond a»d Stephens coaid readily appreciate the paint in Mr. Wren's allusion to the wisdom Of thorn western stumpers. TUB NEXT SENATE. The elections which have already been laid render it certain that the Democrats will have a majority of eight in the next Nmtf There is no chance, however, of tbetr Mooring a two-thirds majority. It will also be impoMible (or them under the most favorable circumstances to elect two thirds of the next House. All that is likely to remain of Republicanism in the Federal Government for the two years after March 4,1(79, is the President. Rut armed as he is with toe veto power, no extreme legisla tion of any kind can be accomplished, so tong as there is no defection in the rsuks ef toe Republican minority. The Demo crats. far from having unrestrained power in the Forty-sixth Congress, will be forcod to submit whatever they propose to Repub lican modification. But there may, never theless, he considerable political agitation. The foregoing appears in a late issue of the San Francisco Bulletin. The Bulletin ie a Simon pure Republican journal. It is getting to be wonderful how small s crum will comfort too sonl of the average Repub lican. After March 4th all of Repub licanism that will be left in the Federal Government will bo the President. And such a Republican President I He is disowned by his party in foor-fifths of the States of toe Union. Nevada Repnblicans dare not touch him with a forty-foot pole. They let him severely alone in tbeir State Con vention, and Republican speakers never allude to him from the stump. Bat the Bulletin is wrong in estimating the Democratic majority in the Senate after the 4to of next March at eight. It eannot be less than eleven, with Illinois, Nevada, New York and several other doubt ful States to hear from. Oglesby in Illinois, Conkling in New York and Jones in Nevada are all, as likely as not, to be succeeded by Democrats. This would ■well the Democratic majority in tho Sen ate to Mventecn. In any event, the Dem ocracy is assured a clear working majority in that body for years to come. The gains in members of Congress in the recent elections in the East renders the House, also, reliably Democratic. With a ma jority of 330,000 in the popular vote of the United States, as demonstrated by the last Presidential election ; with a good ma jority in both Houses of Congress; with twenty-two ont of thirty-eight Governors ; with n vast majority of the local offices of toa country, county and municipal, includ ing all of the large cities, in the posscs akm of their party, it would appear to any reasonable man that the Democrats have •boat all that is worth contending for un der this Government. It is only a ques tion of time, however, until Democratic rate (we mean in a partisan sense) shall be aniversal. There is still work to bo done, and Democrats mnst do it with a will. United action and enthusiastic effort are required here in Nevada to range this State •olid for Democracy. Let the proper afifcrt be made and there will not be a single Republican office-seeker left to tell toe tala ef toe disastrous overthrow of his P*rtT__ mi nuuuscv or mm. his. KRAB.

I SPECIAL TO THE EUBEEA DAILY SENTINEL. | INSURRECTION IN SANTA CRUZ. PROBABLE LOSS OF GEN. GONZA LES AND PARTY. FpIIIIsbIbe fop Porn port*. Havana. October 15. A French steamer from St. Thomas has arrived, bringing further particulars of the insurrection in Santa Cm*. The in surrection brake ont in the western end of the Island, where three-fourths of the towns were burned and pillaged. The insurgents then traversed the Island to ward Bossan. but fortunately the timoly arrival of forces from St. Thomas saved that port of the Island. Sixty-seven sugar estates were burned, and only nine of any value remain. The principal leaders of the insurrection are now undergoing trial. About 800 insurgents are still scattered about the country. The canse of the in surrection was short payment of wages and the refnsal of the authorities to give passports to the negroes. Santa Cruz was already declining rapidly, and the Island is therefore totally mined. The merchants of St. Thomas lost heavily by the insur rection. Advices from 8an Domingo say there are no tidings of the American schooner Jor don L.

The Tuscarora then took the brig in tow for this port. The Violet has a cargo on board valued at about $25,000, including a lot of lime, gunpowder aud other combust ibles. She left this port ten days ago for Honolulu. 8he will probably have to be scuttled, and the cargo will likely prove a total loss. The origin of the fire is un known.

Every two months the children are instructed In this ‘anti-panic drill.’ While the ehildren are in their separate class rooms a sudden signal is given and each teacher dismisses her class promptly and procead* with it to the yard.

I onto set my hand and caused the | " j Great Seal of the State of Nevada to * be affixed. Done at Canon City this 6th day of October, A. D. 1878. L. R. BRADLEY. By the Governor: J. D. MINOR, Secretary of State. By Ga*U4m Miami, Deputy. ol6td NT ATE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM The Democratic party of the State of Nevada announces the following as Its platform of principles and live issues for the present cam* paign. The Democratic party affirms as prin* ! duel: Gold and silver the only legal tender ; no currency unconvertible with coin ; the honest payment of the public debt; a sacred preserva* j lion of the public faith ; revenue reform, and a tariff for revenue only ; no Government part nership with monopolies ; uo subsidies to cor porations or individuals ; no class legislation ; no unjust or unequal taxation ; the reservation of so much of the public domain as the Re publican party lias not alr^ idr gi ven away to. railroad corporations, f« r th benefit of actual settlers ; the maintenance of a non-sectarian common school system; a* quiescent e in the lawfully expressed will of the majority; the equality of all citisens before the law ; eceno* niy in public expenses, that labor may be lightly burdened i subordination of the mill I As important Issues, entitled to especial mention, the Democratic party of Nevada pre sents : First—The induction of R. B. Hayes into the office of President, in violation of the clearly expressed will of the people, is deoounced as the highest crime against free government and the most dangerous encroachment upon popu lar rights ever perpetrated in this country. While in the high intermit of public tranquility we submit to the constituted Federal Adminis tration, yet the investigation of the H«uae of Representatives is specially commended, to the end that the vile bargaining and corruption may be exposed and the brand of infamy a tamped where it rightfully belongs. Second—The Democracy of Nevada advocates the removal of all restrictions to the coinage of silver and the re-establishment of silver as a money metal the alma as gold—the same ss It was before its fraudulent demonetisation by a Republican Congress In 197$ ; the substitution of United States currency for nstfonal hank notes : no further sale of interest-bearing bonds for coin for resumption purposes, but the grains! reduction of tha public debt; and NEW TO-DAY. rigid economy In all branches of the public service. Third—In view of the recent decisions of the Supreme Conrt of the United States, State and National legislation is demanded to pro tect the people of Nevada from the outrageous discrimination and excessive charges of rail road corporations within this State. Fourth—The Democracy of Nevada de nounces the Chinese element as an incubus that will paralyze honest labor in any civilized country on earth, and demands such a radical change in the treaty with the Chinese Empire an will forever stop th* immigration ef the Chinese to the United States. Fifth—The Democracy of Nevada la In favor of an economical administration of the State, county ahd municipal governments ; and that every species of property shall bear its just and equal burden of taxation. Wnile no war la madt on the great corp«»rations. it is demand ed that their property shall contribute for the support of government, the same as other property. Unflinching opposition to any fur ther exemption of the uet proceeds of the mines is announced, the mining interests being now sufficiently encouraged and protected. Such a reduction of State taxation ia demand ed as will prevent any accumulation of money in the State Treasury, and as will only furnish a sufficiency for the interest on the State debt and the economical administration of the state government. Sixth—The Democracy repudiates the doc trine that any officer may disregard and ignore the pledges made to his constituents, and on the faith of which he was elected; and declares that If such practice be tolerated it will result in the destruction of representative democratic government, and we declare that no power exlsta which eau relieve officials from pledgee made to the people previous to election. Seventh—Tne Democracy of Nevada holds the ballot to be the inalienable right of free citizens ; views with alarm the efforts of the great foreign corporations to control the politi cal contests in Nevada ; and urges the people of this State; by their votes at the polls in the approaching election, so signally to rebuke and trample upon such interference as will forever prevent Its repetition. Kigniu—Tiie Democracy or ncvaua recog nizee the right, as well a» the necessity, of or ganizing and maintaining, by the industrial classes, '*|Miners' Unions/‘“Mechanics* Unions,” and other associations,' for the pur Kse of protection against Chinese pauper la r. Under a wise and frugal Government, which it is the mission of the Democracy to maintain and perpetuate, any resort to force, or to violation of law. or invasion of the rights of person .or of property, to red reas grievances, is needless and at war with free institutions. By legislation, fostering and favoriug the great moneyed corporations, snch as national banks, railroad, steamship, telegraphic and manufacturing companies,the Republican party haa perverted the Government from its true object of protecting the people, and made it the instrument of plundering them. It has concentrated vast wealth in the hinds of a few. while the toiling millions who created that wealth are struggling in poverty and en forced idleness ; and it has enabled monopolies to devour so great a portion of the earnings aa to take from the mouth of labor the bread it has esrned. Ninth—The Democracy of Nevada congratu late the country upon the acceptance, by the present Administration, of the constitutional and pacific policy of local and self-government in the States South, so long advocated by the Democrstic party, resulting in peace and har mony to that section of the Union.
