I'Ll E l>iNT. Nrrnp* from the Notebook ofl the fern l liter* Reiwrter. The Jack ton’s new shaft is down 235 feet. Bupt. Donnelly is expected home daily. Whooping-cough has about disappeai el from Pinto. Haskell is receiving large consignments of furniture. Dr. Bishop has been called to Newark to attend a patient. Mr. James 8. Allen will leave in a few days for I X L district. Literary societies are becoming numer ous throughout the Btate. Mike Walsh claims that I X L is bound to prove a booming camp. About 1,300 cars, loaded with freight for the Last, passed Palisade in Ociober. J. D. Powe rs, formerly employed at the Richmond, is located in Ban Francisco. Jim Ashley has so far recovered as to bask an hour or two in the sunshine daily. A third, and possibly a fourth, story will be added to the Jackson House in the spring. A dispatch of interest to members of the A. O. U. W. will be found under the head of California. There will be a general good time at the Methodist Church to-night. Our readers should attend. Prof. Heins mot with no encouragement in bis efforts to form a writing class, and gave up the attempt. Geo. It. A ram on'1 will lecture before the Mutual Improvement Society Friday night, at the M. E. Church. Oscar Buttlar, who is charged with as sault and battery, will have a bearing be fore Judge Cromer to-day. A specimen from the Eureka mine, in White Pine county, weighing about 150 pounds, can be seen in flout of Clutc’s store. A replevin suit was brought against L. Levin by Messrs. Hart A Phelps, yester day, to recover the stock of goods held by the former. Two weeks more of such weather, and Messrs. Foley, Johnson A liickard can laugh at w inter storms. Their new build ing will be under roof by that time. As Col. Cauavan is a Grant Republican and Mr. Levan a Bayard Democrat, we have some curiosity to know what kind of a boom will rule in the International Ha loon. The business boom has had the effect of cau-ing many of our hoarding house keep ers to advance the price of Ixiurd, as will be seen by a notice under the head of “New To-day.” The only ripple on Main street yesterday occurred when Officer Kimpson appeared with a brand new pair of crocodile boots. The numerous compliments paid led “Him” to suspe-'t that the boys were putting up & ' job at his expense. A * m il K VSK 111 IX. The First Ap|»enrunoe or John Thom|m»ou*« Troupe. The Eureka public have been so often bitteu by “ snide” t nt.-rtaiment*. that they are naturally disposed to look on all new comers as first-class frauds, unless their fame precede them. There are, how ever, a large class who will attend any kind of amusement, simply for the pur pose of killing time. It wuuld be a safe assertion to say that every one who wit nessed last night's performance, went to the Hall with the expectation of being badly sold. And, it would be equally safe to as sert that, without a aiugle exci ption, all were disappointed. The programme open ed with Gilbert's drama of • Sweetheart,” and in the first ac', which repre en*ed the garden or love scene, the risibilities of some few people wfio might have been ex pected to have passed their "calf-days,” w ere apparently excited. Such exhibitions as wern made by one or two partio* during this act la scarcely creditable to their judg ment or good sense. In the second act, where Joe Merton, a* Kir H. ary Spread born, returns af;er thirty years aUeuce, and meets the object of hi* curly love un married, the sympathies of the audience was involuntarily enlisted, and the happy termination of the drama wag hailed with manifestations of unqualified approval. Miss Untie Nagle and Joe Merton both proved themselves versatile actors, and filled their parts acceptably. It was not. howover, until John Thompson appeared in his various disguises in “On Hand" that those in attendance oast aside th**ir prejudices and acknowledged that the per formance was really deserving of commend ation, and from that period until the dose the actors were loudly encored. Thomp son proved a show in himself, and whether as the man of the period, the Irish domestic, the heathen Chinee, old clothes man. or any of the nine characters as sumed, he held the undivided attention of tho audience. There seems to be no musi cal instrument he is not capable of hand ling. and plays everything from a cows ho**n to a cornet with equal skill. There will be an entire change of programme ever night, and our readers can be as sured that each one will be worthy of their patronage. Again lu IV atria wee. The International Saloon was opened opened last evening, and after several months' lecroation Mr. D. W. Levan is agaiu in harness, while Pete Canavan will find something else to do besides bedeviling the Sentinel’s local and electing Graut— on paper. The saloou is unquestionably one of the finest to be found in Nevada, and everything appertaining to it has beeu carefully and judiciously selected. The best of liquors and cigars will be served by such court*ous gentlemen as Charley Crandall and D. W. Levan. The new firm received a rousing send-off last night. They did not forget the Sentinel boy*, who desire to return thanks for appreciated favors. _ _ Anays of I X I. Or*. Messrs. Dimock ami Walsh yesterday had aome samples of I X L ore assayed by Mr. Max Moeler, the well-known assayer. They were particular in selecting samples from the various mines of the new district not to cheat themselves ; that is to say, they endeavored to get at the average, and prefsrred to get under than over the true value. Their highest assay was 886.38. This Is considered pretty good for mere croppings. They say that the new district presents the largest mineral belt in the state, j Antelope Dlstrlel. Mr. Wm. Whalen goes down to Antelope Diatriot this morning for a winter’s cam paign. He has several excellent mines there, which he has sto >1 by for five or six years. He shows his faith by sticking to them. He lies been working in the Ruby Hill mines for some mouths, to get a stake to enable him to go ahead with hia proa* peeling operations in Antelope.

San Francisco, November 16, 1879. Editor Sentinel : Winter has at length set in, in right good earnest, in this penin sula, and almost every day since the be ginning of the month has been marked by copious pluvial discharges. Frost and snow and ice, however, trouble us not, as they do you at this season ; but if they do, you are in a measure recompensed for the discomfort they cause by the bright, warm gleams of sunshine to which you are daily treated, while we of this region are for days together denied such blessings. This con dition of things renders heated stoves, hot biddies and ample ulsters luxuries not to be despised. The continued rains and chilling winds, too, produce much sick ness and distress, ami enable the quack doctors, the advertising specialists and the more reputable pill dosers of this city to reap a rich harvest. If man or woman (b*g pardon for the faux pas) lady there be in your midst afflicted with pulmonary ailments, let them, if d« sirousof shuffling off this mortal coil, and in a hurry to confront the metaphorical old personage, who goes about with the scythe and sand-glass, come to this city and place themselves under some aspiring Escul&pius and, my word for it, they will soon be in a fair way to require the services of the grim, old ferry man to row them to the other shore. Yet, in the face of all these facts, and in the face, too, of the large death rate, to this city do the sick and debilitated of this coast seem to come for treatment and relief. What is the conscqu* nee ? Simply, that many of them, instead of finding* relief, find death, and rude coffins and an un known grave if they are unfortunate enough to r< nder up the ghost within the cheerless walls of the CITY AND COUNTY HOSPITAL. This institution is situated at the inter section of Twenty-second and-streets, fronting on the latter. It is au irregular wooden structure, built in the center of a large block, and surrounded with a high board fence, to prevent parties from leav ing the premises without authority, as they still sometimes do. lUinning. longitudin ally, from north to south, is a long hall or gallery, which serves as a promenade for the more robust inmates during bad weath er. Extending laterally, from each side of this gallery, are the wards, fonrte* n in number, lettered from A to O, I being ex cluded. together with dissecting rooms, dining rooms for nurses and small fry offi cers, storerooms, cook-house, main offices, drug store and resident physician’s quar ters. These latter are comfortably, nay luxuriously, fitted up. and if the daily menu be not always such as is found on the tables of the Palace Hotel, it still is, I presume, sufficiently varied to be tempting. TEN OK THESE W ARDS Are, I have been told, devoted to males and two to females, while the remaining two are unoccupied. The medical staff com prises two, or I believe, three resident, and four visiting physicians, the latter attend ing to special and chronic complaints. The grounds hb I said, are large and well laid out,| and the Australian eucalyptus grows luxuriantly. The institution is op< n to visitors on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sun days only. There is a place of worship on the premises also, which is used in com mon by the various sects represented. The Catholics till it every Tuesday regularly, aud one or more of the others on alternate Sundays. It is, however, safe to say that neither religion, nor the pathetic exhorta tions of vaunting preachers occupy much of the thoughts of the unfortunate iumat s. It is not religious consolation but physical restoration that they stand most in ne< d of, if current reports be correct. There are now nearly four hundred patients suf fering from all manner of diseases. Con sumption, however, proves the most fatal, carrying off a large proportion of those afflicted to "that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns.M A COLONIZATION SCHEME Of soma importance has been lately incu bated and perfe cted in this city. It has for its ostensible obiect the settlement aud utilization of the lands to be acquired from the Mexican Government for im portant services rendered, in forwarding it arms aud other military weapons and stores, at the time of Maximilian’s at tempted conquest, by that Argon au tic vet erau. Samuel Brannau, who so rich, rakish aud fast, but now comparatively poor; thus affording a notable instance of how easily fortunes become dissipated on this coast. This association, iilibusu ring < x peditiou, or whatever else it may be desig nated, NUMBERS 2.000 MEMBERS, All males, I suppose, became no mention is made of the other sex as being in any way connected with it. A sprinkling of the •troug-minded may, however, accompany it, as "compagnons du voyage,” to the ne v El Dorado. Miners, farmors, mechanics, machinists, eto., comprise the industrious element, while speculators, insinuating rock sharps, whisky vendors, needy Mac awbers and adventurers generally are prob ably pretty well represented also. Each of its members pay into the treasury a stipu lated sum on joiuing, which entitles him to certain (not named) privileges, but which it is not difficult to conjecture. The expedition is to be headed by & brother of General Ord's, Sam Brannau, and one or two kindred spirits, who, like another Cortez, are preparing to gird on their ar mors and go forth to form a new empire within the realms of the d ad Moutezu mas. Dreamers and philanthropists, hap pily, are not. as would appear, all dead yet. This colonizing project may, however, have better success than others that preceded it. Branuan’s claim is likely to he sanctioned, in which case the scheme may not prove as chimerical or ah Utopian in character as may be imag ined, from the fact that the Hierra Mojado mines are said to be included in the tract of country claimed by him. BCICIDK. It may wall be asked, with th* melan choly Dane, whether it ia a "ain to rush into the secret home of Death ere Death come to us t" If it ia. then how griev ously have rnauy of the former inhabi tants of this modern Bodom sinned against their Creator. In no city of the Union haa the mauia been mure largely developed than in this. To what cause, or causes mav be attributed this readiness, on the part of Ban Franciseana, to employ the obedient bullet and the deadly drug as a means of expediting their exit from tins whirling planet into an endless eternity ? Tlie reasons are manifold, and such as it is probable do not prevail elsewhere. If, as is popularly suppo-ed, none hut cowards aud the temporarily insane ooinmit sui cide, then this city must have possessed a fair proportion of both J aud scarcely a day uas.es. even now, that some unhappy mor tal does uot ease himself of the “surcease of sorrow" by th* friendly aid of th* bul let. the dagger, er tb* bowl. Thar* il » lull Juai tiuw, however | but th* mauia will break out with renewed fore* by* and bye. lit aellone are epasmedi*. and every eondi Hull prevailing !“•'« favors tie ileeeiujim nt The resnluta, |b* ambitious, the r> ckl-vt. ttia dospvraie. th* dariug etc., aamnib’e here, Here, also, is the Mecca uf th* ita pecuntnua, the broken-down, the disheart ened, the man of shattered fortune* and ruined hope. All come here, aud not one in every hundred succeeds; hence the ready resolve to plunge, like Maltus Cur tius. headlong into the yawning chaatu of death. STOCK OAMBUXO, Which i* responsible for many a man a downfall hare, and «o» many el tb* aim ef I society as well, is still pursued with an ar dor and persistency bordering on madness. I The man or woman—beg pardon again — ! ladv who has not stocks on the brain, if i not in the pockec, would l>e hard to find • and if you have any doubts ns to a man's business, you will not have long to conjec ture, if you see him daily haunting the precincts of the Stock Exchanges, labori ously elbowing his way through the crowd in Paupers* Alley, to glance at one of the ! various stock indicators, or listen to its be ing n ad off. Everybody gambles, and Bridget, in the kitchen, h as likely to hold Sierra Nevada or Eureka Con., as Mrs. Lo rinda. in the parlor, arrayed in dresses cut deeollefte and innocent of sleeves, is to carry Union or ilalc<& N ore rows. The pas sion has taken possession of the members of almost every family circle here. Joneg pore dabbles, go does Jones mere, and with the funds nightly extracted from the pockets of the snoring lord, probably. The news from HALF AND NOBCBOS8 Caused a little commotion in the ranks of outside buyers last Monday. The buoy ancy of the market, however, was only temporary, and the hopes it gave rise to, as false as ignns fatuns, for the amount of Hale«t Nor cross and other stocks offered caused an immediate reaction, and the softening process has been going on ever since, culminating yesterday in a regular field-day for the ursine forces of the Boards. In consequence elongated visages, bent heads and scowling looks were in order all day yesterday, and probably aro to-day, without the sanctifying influences and h-»iy calm of tliis beautiful Habbath have brought peace to perturbed spirits, and confidence to disheartened operatives. The market cer tainly is TERRIBLY' DEMORALIZED At present, and without the northenders and the wafer mines come to the rescue, a further break is, from the look of things, undoubtedly imminent. Money, for a long while back scarce, is now plentiful enough for all legitimate demands, and this fact, together with the improvement in busi ness of every kind, may soon again give a boost to the market which will cause you Base Rangers to open your incredulous eyes. The signs of the times are promising, and with money easy, business brisk, and labor in demaud, the next boom will be a big one. Miles Baxter. Stock FliictuationN.

Openlnv of (be International. The International Hotel was formally opened last night, and from early in the evening until a late hour, the place was crowded with the friends of Mr. and Mrs. Hall, who called to participate in the fes tivities, and to tender theii congratulations and wish them success in their undertaking. An excellent In new was set in the oflh-e, while the kitchen and dining-room were in the undisputed possession of the dancers. The house was thrown open for the inspec tion of the visitors, and its appcarsnoe occasioned much favorable criticism. Mrs, Hall's good taste, shown in the selec tion of the furniture, was also uutversalty acknowledged. The hotel starts under auspicious circumstances, and its pr< prie tors will have no occasion to regret having embarked in a venture that few others would have cared to have undertaken. In Jail for Contempt. Says the Reveille : Joseph Bray and John Kitto, the two men who left the town the other day without paying sundry bills which they owed, and were subsequently arrested in Eureka aud brought back, had an examination before Judge Logan yester day, and were centenced to the county jail for contempt. It was proved that they re ceived money from the Manhattan Com pany on the day before their departure, aud they gave several accounts to the Court as to the disposition thereof. They will re main in jail until they conclude to tell what they did with the money. “ Jimmy* (be Curtinmi,” Dead. About noon yesterday James Grogan, better known as “ Jimmy, the Cartman," was sitting in Baker Gray's saloon, and complained of feeling unwell. He was shortly afterwards taken seriously ill, and was removed to bia cabin on Spring street He died shortly after reaching it. Coroner Smith will hold an inquest at 12 o'clock to-day. It is thought ilia death was caused by pneumonia. Former Eureka in. The Yankee Fork Herald has this men tion of a family well known in Eureka : Mr. and Mrs. Z. L. King, who left here last week for Challis, have leased the Challis House, and are now occupying the same. Mrs. King and her daughter, Miss Georgie Russell, will he valutd acquisitions to Challis society, and with the many friends ,,f tl»H family the Challis House will be a success under their supervision. Cherry Crerk. Mr. Thoa. Murphy ia back from Charry Creek. Ha reports matters out that way quiet, but look out for a revival iu busi ness the coming year. The Star mine, which ia being worked right along, pays handsomely. There are several other good mines iu the camp, needing only capital to make them first-class bullion producers. For I X I.
