BUNDAyT^ : ; ; JANUARY fi lHTli ArroisfTEi* r«R. The press over tlie country have univer sally noticed two facts since Congress as •enabled in December. The first was that Ben Batter was conspicuous by his ab sence, and the second that Congress made Unusual progress before the recess. The latter cause is due entirely to the first. It comes naturally to Ben to retard legisla tion, and raise the deTil generally, especi ally when his list is uncomfortably full of bricks. The public generally, however, have been unable to account for Ben’s ab sence. They may have ascribed it to tho fact of his crushing defeat in the guberna torial contest of last fall, but they little know the man if they suppose that it is in bit nature to succumb to such a blow. They tnust remember that tlie Genera lis a lawyer as well os a Congressman and a soldier— in fact, was a lawyer before he assumed either of the other characters, and ho has Always proceeded upon the principle that hU first duty was to that vocation to which ne was nrsi caucu. no uo»oi wiuww the others to interfere in the sliglit est degree with his acquiring the emoluments of that profession which he Chose at the outset of his marked and Chequered career.

CAPITAL CORRESPONDENCE. Five Boars with Mosby, the Guer rilla Chief. WHY HE IS A REPUBLICAN, AND WHY HE LOVES GRANT. The Money In Unr Stale Treasury Minor (’arson Sotos. Carson City, January 3, 1879. Editor Sentinel : Tint’s the first time aineo the beginning of the new year that I have written “ 79.” The force of habit is strong in everybody, and I came very nearly Jotting it down “78,” as usual. Life’s approaching sunset, I take it, is neves so forcibly recalled ; we never so fully realize bow old we are ; as by the going out of an Old year with its disappointments and the coming in of a new one with its hopes that are destined never to be fulfilled. On my way down l xell m with Uolouej Mcsby, the guerrilla chief who made things 80 lively in the rear of the Union forces, between Washington and Richmond dur ing the war. The Colonel has been ap pointed Consul at Hongkong by Presi dent Hayes, and confirmed by a Republi can Senato, and is now en route to his post of duty. Your correspondent mustered courage to approach the celebrated bush whacker at the Humboldt House, and from thence to Reno (about five hours) a running conversation between the two was kept up. Colonel Mosby was found to he an agreeable gentleman and fond of relat ing reminiscences of the war and his con nection therewith. He told me how on one occasion lie surprised and routed 3,000 Federal cavalry in the rear of Sheridan's army with 226 men, capturing 100 wagons, laden with choice supplies, 1,000 good mules and 500 beef cattle, all of which, except the wagons, ho hurried off to Lee's army. In fact he claims to have fed Lee’s army for more that two years by his suc cessful raids on Federal supply trains. His men, ho says, were never armed with anything but revolvers, and his tactics Were to surprise and charge. He claims to have either killed or captured every mother's son of the “California Hun dred,” those picked men that went from this Coast. Ho says he saw Major Reid, the commander of the Hundred, shot by one of his | Mosbv's | officers. The Major bad been captured, but not disarmed, and be was indiscreet enough to commence shooting at his captors, when one of them turned and killed him. He also related with apparent relish, incidents connected with the oapture and sacking of numerous railway trams, and said that on a particu lar occasion he nabbed two United Status Paymasters, from whom he got $172,000 in greenbacks. This was the biggest haul in money that lie ever made. He got pos aession of the wires at one end /of the line, and telegraphed in the name of General Grant for theso Paymasters to conie on with the currency for the boys. That's how he knew they wore coming, and how he came to lay for them and go through them in the most approved style of the guerrilla’s art. All and all, his stories are interesting and entertaining. Colonel Mosuy lia# the appcaranco of being about 47 years of age ; is six-foot, clean-shaven; has iron-gray hair; is stooped-shouldered; has a restless, blue eye, a deep-set chin, with determination depicted about the mouth ; and during the five hours that your correspondent en gaged him be nervously chewed the butt end of a goose-quill toothpick, lie wore a slouched bat, and arcd-flaunel undershirt, that cropped out on the wrists below a linen garment of oidinary pattern. He has a shuffling gait; Ills pants seem about four inches too shert for him, and lie keeps his hands perpetually In his pockets. Such in appearance is one of the most striking characters developed by the great war. He is slow of speech, not amounting to a drawl, and seems to bo a good deal above the average in point of intelligence. He is a native of Virginia and a lawyer by profession. After ho had detailed, with something of enthusiasm, all about how he had made it particularly lively and in teresting for the “Yanks,” as he once or twice called them, dnriug the war, we ven tured to ask him how he came to be a Re publican, and this is the way he explained: lie said that he was never a strong believ er in the right of secession, but his people and State went that way and he got drawn iuto it. The doctrine of secession, he continued, was exploded by tho war. The Republicans believed in a strong cen tral government, and their idea of things had triumphed in the confliot of arms. When, at the conclusion of tho war, he re sumed his allegiance to the Government of the United States, ho did so with a full knowledge that States’ Right heresies were oI the pa’’., and that the government of the future mast be administered in accord ance with tho doctrines and ideas that had been established by the arbitrament of the ■word. This, he said, was why lie is a Re publican, ami be urged that lie could not be anything else and be true to liis oath of allegiance. We next inquired bow it was that lie and Grant became such friends. “Well,” says the Colonel, “I'll tell you all about that, too. Yon see, at the close of the struggle Arnly Johnson started in to declare me an outlaw, and to place a price upon my head. General Grant interposed his shield and said that neither Lee’s army nor any of the force* co-operating with it should be harmed. That awakened a mo*t kindly sentiment all along the Confederate line for Grant. The real Confederate soldier everywhere,” he added, “is Grant’s friend.” Colonel Mosby says he stumped Virginia for Grant in the last Grant campaign, at which time the Old Dominion voted for the General, and he says he will do the same thing two years hence, when he ex pects his native State again to go the same way. In a word, Colonel Mosby thinks Grant the greatest man in the world, and he loses no opportunity to make his high estimate of him known. In reply to our remark, “wnai auom Hayes,” Colonel Mosby merely said, ‘‘bo has treated me kindly; I bold a commis sion from Mr. Hayes.” He further said that President Hayes bad offered him a choice between a Territorial Judgeship and the Consulship at Hongkong, He chose the latter, as he preferred to go abroad for a season. He seemed much gratified by the fact that his appointment had been confirmed without a dissenting voice in the Senate. He said be spoke to but one Democrat about the matter, and that man was Thurman, who said he would fix the thing for him, and ho did. Rambling on, Colonel Moaby was frank enough to say he had lost his law practice and something of his social status among his Virginia neighbors by joining the Re publican parj}'. He has quit bis native State for keeps. He thinks that at the end of two years ho will settle on the Pacific Coast. His wife died a year ago. He has two sons at school, aged respectively 18 and 20. The eldest will join him in Aug ust as his Private Secretary. And now, in conclusion, a uriei wora oi matters at the Capital. But few of the Legislators have yet arrived. C. C. Wallace, of Eureka, seems to have the inside track for Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate, and Billy Hanford will likely be Secretary of the same body. The relative strength of aspirants for other positions cannot be guessed. The Legisla ture conveues on Monday next, and the inauguration of the new State officers is set for Tuesday. A grand ball, by the cit izens of Carson, is announced for the same evening, or, rather, is in course of incubation. Guess it will be a stunner. Jerry Schooling is counting the money in the Treasury, and getting ready to turn over liis office to his successor, Mr. Crock ett. He has $400,000 in gold coin, $100, 000 in silver, and numerous securities in the shape of Federal and Stale bonds, in all about $700,000. It will take two men fofir days to count the silver. The gold, prin cipally twenty-dollar pieces, in the vault, stands iu stacks of $1,000 each. The counting of this will bo an easier job. The whole mass of gold measures about two feet in height, two feet in width and sixteen inches in depth—a healthy dab for the incoming State government. Let us see how the business will size up when they go out four years hence. The silver is stored in the bottom of the vault, in 100 sacks, of $1,000 each. The State lias money enough to run a Base liangc poker game of the “limit” variety for a genera tion, particularly if the players are eau tious, as all well-regulated “limit” players are known to be. Fumes. EASTERN NEWS. NIGHT DISPATCHES. f 8PKOIAL TO THE EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL. | P. S. O’Brien Spirited Away. TWO WOMEN DO THE DEED, Two Million Dollar** in QnoHUou. New York, January 4. The Herald prints a column dispatch from Ilalcigh, N. G\, giving an account of the spiriting away of P. H. O’Brien by two women. They represented themselves to be his wife and daughter. O’Brien had been in destitute eircuinstances, and was cared for by a man named Waters. After the death of the Bonanza O’Brien lie com municated with his sister, who provided for his wants. A New York lawyer en | deavored to induce him to break the will, hut lie refused. lie supposed his wrife was dead. O’Brien was led to believe the women wore his wife and daughter, and on tho ICth of December they took him away. No tidings havo since been heard from him. The women promised to write to Mr. Waters. O’Brien also promised to write, and told Waters that he should write to Father White, but to tho present date no syllable has been heard of their whereabouts. The people hero say the correspondents are greatly puzzled to know the object of taking O’Brien away. It is the opinion of those acquainted with the circumstances, that O’Brien is in bad hands, and there is no hesitancy in saying that the object w as to secure P.S. O’Brien’s signature, as that is the only signature by which two million dollars, coming to him, can ever bo secured. Tho indfference of the women does not accord with the actions of a wife and daughter. Their sudden dis appearance and departure, as well as that while here, they did not want to be known, is a queer chapter in tho story. It is al 1 edged that O’Brien has been kidnapped by a woman, and forcud to sign papers set ting psido the will of his brother, and that his part of the estate will be used by sharp ers, who no doubt had the whole thing mapped out before O’Brien ever dreamed of seeing his dead wife. Government Railroad Director** Report. Washington, January 4. The Government Railroad Directors have sent their annual report to the Secro tary of the Interior. They are of the opin ion that the Union Pacific, in view of the extremely liberal aid it has received from the Government, and the brilliancy of its its success as a commercial enterprise, should bo judged by the most severe stand ards known among the railroads of the country. Measured by these standards, they report deficiencies many and appar ent. At the same time the property is being brought up with steadiness, though slowly, with a fair degree of average excel lence. The failure to replace with steel rails the worn-out iron rails, is sharply critioised, and tho Directors say, that al though the policy now pursued by tho company in regard to the material condi tion of the property is careful and suffi ciently safe, it is by no means liberal, nor such as tho country has a right to expect or tho Government to insist upon. The New York *• Herald ** Co be ftucd for Libel, New’ York. January 4. William 1*. Palmer, brother of Manager Palmer, of tlie Union Square Theater, is about to bring a libel suit against the New York Herald for publishing his family af fairs as part of the history of William L. Palmer, the insane murderer of a police man, at the Metropolitan Hotel, a few days ago. The Herald evidently confounded the two names. The chief offense appears to be the Herald's neglect to correct the statement afterward. Wlial Advantages do the 1T lilted States Offer to Emlgrrntlon ? New’ York, January 4. Letters from England state that the ques tion is coming up every day iu connection with the unprecedented hard times: What advantages do the United States offer to emigration ? And the writers earnestly ask authoritative information as to what America is doing for emigrations. The in quiry is called out by the representations that American industries cauuot employ the hundreds of thousands already here. A Valuable Train. New York, January 4. It is stated that a special train from San Francisco, that arrived here last Saturday, carried under a manifest calling for six cars of silkworms, three car-loads of gold bars, amounting in value to ♦he sum of £18,000,000, consigned to the Rothschilds. It Was •• Ladle* Day.*’ New York, January 4. It is a significant fact that, notwithstand ing the temperance movement, 200 arrests for drunkenness were made on New \ear’s day, over 50 women were arrested on the following day, most of whom assigned as a reason that it was “ Ladies Day.” FOREIGN NEWS. | SPECIAL TO THE EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL. | Cornish Bank at Truro Closed. FAILURE OF HUDSON & CO. Auoiayanoai* Letter* A<I«lre.**e:l to tlx* Forte, • London, January 4. The Cornish Lank at Truro, Cornwall, closed this morning. The hank did a large business in mining and other com mercial enterprises. The bank belongs to Tweedie, Williams ik Co. It was estab lished about 110 years ago, and had branches at Falmouth, l’enryn and Led ruth. Sir Frederick Williams, a member of Par liament for Truro, who died recently, held one-third of the concern. The widow is sole executor. The bank bad an author ized issue of £49,000. It. Hudson <1 Co., seed crushers, of Leeds and Hull, have failed; liabilities, £105,000. A dispatcli from Plymouth says that the stoppage of the Cornish Bank will cause terrible distress among the traders of West Cornwall. The immediate cause of the suspension is a run on the bank the last fortnight, resulting from rumors that the late Sir Frederick Williams was largely in debted to the bank, and a large portion of its capital was locked up iu mines and in advances on tin. A further stoppage of Cornish mines is inevitable, and the failure of many private firms must follow. The deposits in the bank amount to £5.000,000. Madrid, January 4. Juan Moncasi.j who attempted to assas sinate the young King Alfonzo, has been handed over to the Brotherhood charged with accompanying condemned persons to execution. A chapel is erected in his cell, where he will remain 24 hours in prayer. The execution will be by garroto. Constantinople, January 4. Owing to the depreciation of the caimes aud the high price of provisions, anony mous letters have been addressed to the Porte, threatening a serious riot if the caimes are not withdrawn. Military pre cautions have been taken. PACIFIC COAST. I SPECIAL ro THE EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL.) CALIFORNIA. Assessments Levied. HADLEY, ALIAS SAVILLE, IS INDICTED, Report of tli«* (iraiiii Jury. San Fkancisco, January 4. The Silver Hill Mining Company l*as levied an assessment of 50 cents per share. The K K Mining Company has also levied an assessment of $1 per share. Hadley, alias Saville, who attempted to swindle Lncky Baldwin in a stock trans action, in offering, as collateral, a forged note and a letter of credit on the Union Bank of Loudon, has been indicted by the Grand Jury. The Grand Jury, in their report, to-day, are very severe on some of the officials of the city and county government. Grave charges of irregularities in the Fire De partment have been sustained by evidence taken before the jury, but on the promiso of amendment, the indictments against the parties responsible have been deferred. They acquit the Directors of the French Savings Bank of any wrong, except in placing too much confidence in the late president, Malic. A great deal of time was devoted to the ease of the late Alex. Austin, ex-Tax Collector, in connection with charges preferred against City and County Attorney Burnett, District At torney Murphy and Auditor Maynard. The two latter are exonerated of any im proper dealings in connection with Austin, but Burnett is censured for having placed himself in a very embarrassing situation, in which no public official should allow himself to l>o placed, by borrowing money from Austin, whom Bnrnett was at the time prosecuting, though no wrong intent was shown. The report says that in a number of instances i the jury feel certain some public officials j should have been indicted for misconduct iu office, lmt technical difficulties have prevented. In connection with the expose of swindling on the part of sewer con tractors by the “Bulletin,” the Grand Jury have found a number of indictments, which are at present withheld. It is un derstood, however, that among those in dicted are John Hogan, contractor, and ex-Street Superintendent John Noonan, contractor, ami E. W.

Among the importations by the steamer Belgic, which arrived here from Hongkong on the 2d instant, were 100,000 trade dol lars, being a part of 400,000 reported as having been purchased for the United States at Hongkong. They will be shipped by rail to New York to-morrow. Henry and Thomas Tennis, guards at the House of Correction, have been arrest ed on indictment found against them by the Graud Jury, charging them with al lowing a prisoner, named O. C.

A Walla Walla dispatch says that every preparation is being made by the military authorities to provent trouble at the Uma tilla reservation next Friday, when the two Indian murderers are to be hanged. Two companies of cavalry will leave Walla Walla for the scene. Sheriff Sperry lias 100 armed men on hand. The Indians aro insolent, and trouble is expected. The dissatisfied stockholders of the Man hattan mine held & meeting last evening. There was an attendance of about thirty. C. X. Hobbs presided. The meeting was called for the purpose of bearing the re port of Mr. Wilson, the expert sent to Ans j tin to examine into the affairs of the company. The expenses of the expert ; had been $500, of which $250 had been j paid. Ho accordingly withheld his re port, subject to the payment of the $250. A communication from John A. Paxton, President of the company, had been re ceived at a previous meeting, setting forth that if the stockholders would appoint an honest expert to examine into the affairs of the mine at Austin, be would pay one-half of his expenses. Mr. Bailey said that he had waited upon Mr. Paxton and stated to him that the committee had appointed an expert, but that Mr. Paxton refused to consider the matte r or pay any of the ex penses, saying, “Do you suppose I am go ing to furnish you with a club to break my own head'/” Mr. Bailey further stated that he understood Mr. Paxton also had an expert examining the affairs of the mine at the same time with the committee’s expert, and that a draft for $150 had been drawn by the officers of the company to pay him. The Secretary stated that there were already some 12.000 shares of the cap ital stock pooled with the committee, and that President Hobbs had assured him that he could roll up the number to 18,000. and ns there were but 50,000 shares in all, he thought they could easily get control of the mine at the next election; but the only way for the stockholders to get out of their difficulties was to pay up the small assess ment levied for expenses.
