On Fourth of July evening, about 10 o’clook, Johnny Horn was arrested in the I'alaee Saloon in which, in a row, he dmv the six-shooter which, if report be true, ho wears as continuously as ho docs liis breeches, and he was being taken to jail by Officer Ashley and Special Policeman Sampson. On the way, when passing the Parker House, he called out to some friends to come and help him. A moment afterwards the officers were attacked. Ashloy stood out agaiust tho others, while Sampson grappled with Horn, who struggled to escape. In the rough anil tuniblo fight that ensued Sampson re ceived in the head a blow from what ho thought was a six-shooter, and was knockod down. Getting up as quickly as he could, he saw his prisoner running away up the street and ho fired, not at him, ho says, but only to scare him. We have not heard anybody blame the officer. If he did not take aim, however, he certainly ought to bo blamed. It would be a good lesson to a number of reckless cowboys in this camp who aro so lmiuly with their six-shooters, them should get the biggest pos sible doao of what they are forever threat ening to give others. The sooner they aro niaae to know that there arc other lives as aluable as their own, and that there is in the land which they must respect, 10 better. It is to be hoped that young tb«rnwi ^ rc‘dectand loam something from 1 narrow csoapo ho made, getting off ft °nly a flesh wound in the side. He Jj'ftng and may outgrow his indisorotion hnu!e 1 should understand, tll&t it will not do to tax the pa c0 ®ven this camp too much.

ScrnpM from llio Note-book of l!»f , Nantliiel’ii Reporter. _Eurchit-Lodgn Mo. 22, JL XL-CL at their hall at 7:30 o’clock this evening. Jimmy liyrne, after a severe illness of four months, died this morning at half past 1 o’clock. Up to 2 o’clock this morning Weyburn, who shot W. J. Penrose on Ruby Hill, had not been captured. Persons having bills against tho Fourth of July Committee should present them to Mr. Luther Clark to-day. The County Commissioners will meet on Saturday next, when all bills against the county will be passed upon. Three now contracts have been let in the Dunderberg mine. One to sink the main shaft to a greater depth and two to drift. During the evening of tho Fourth some very pretty pieces of llreworks were sot off from tho private residences of our citi zens. During tho past two months three con tractors in the Plienix mine have shipped 150 tons of high grade ore to tho Eureka Con. works. In Shaw’s raise, in the Eureka Tunnel, the ore seam has increased to two feet in thickness. Tho general prospects in the tunuel aro improving. There has been a draft of ten men made in the Dunderberg mine. This appears strange, as tbero is said to be an abun dance of ore in the mine. The mill of tho Mountain View Com pany, at Hot Creek, Nyo county, was started up a few days ago, and wo are in formed is running successfully. A grand blow-out was given at tho ro finery and furnace of tho Richmond Com pany on tho Fourth, for which the em ployes return kind thanks to Superin tendent Davis and Hon. Thomas Wren for a very beautiful supply of refreshments. The matinee at the Opera House on the Fourth by the Truckee Concert Company was a very creditable entertainment. It gave full satisfaction, and tho members were .highly complimented by those who sat out tho performance. In fact, the company appeared to a more pleasing ad vantage than was expected, though encom passed by many drawbacks. PERSONAL. At midnight, Constable Penrose was in good spirits and resting easy. Miss Daisy Wendell and Mr. N. Wescoatt are expected to arrive this evening from Salt Lake City. Mr. It. Sadler leaves this morning to at tend tlio meeting of the Democratic State Committee to be held at Virginia City on Saturday next. Mr. ’T. S. Johnson of Massachusetts and one of the directors of tlio Bowman Com pany, yesterday visited tho Albion mine, and thinks it asplondid property. He is also well pleased with the Bowman mine. Dr. Hagar (of ours), says the White Tine News, has formed a partnership with Dr. A. C. Bishop in Eureka, and will henceforth practice his profession there. Ho has many friends hero who will bo pleased to hear of his well-doing. D. R. Sessions says that lie has a stuffed club with which he has tho spirit, although possibly not the muscle, to brain any news paper man, M. H. Joseph not excluded, who charges him with being a candidate for any office within tho gift of the Ameri can people. Tlio Four til oil tlio Hill. Tho Ruby Hillers enjoyed tbo Fourth of July at home. They had lots of fun and a splendid celebration. Tho procession started from Miners’ Union Hall at 10 o'clock A. M. with tho Union Guard Baud and Company in the lead, followed by citizens and Indiana, and marched to New Town, where the Guards went through the military maneuvers in a very effloient manner. After marching back to the hall the procession broke up. After din ner over 200 people repaired to the shoot ing ground and enjoyed themselves to their hearts' content. The Guards built a pavilion for tho accommodation of tlio ladies and children and furnished freo an abundant supply of refreshments of every kind. The children’s foot racing caused lots of amusement. The race between Harry Ivey and Richard Sampson was very interesting and considerable money changed hands. Sampson won. John Cardow and J. C. Harris ran a foot race which caused, groat merriment for the orowd. Fat John was too much for Slim Jim and got away with the cake. Dancing was kept up until 1a. 3i., when tho crowd dispersed, voting tho Union Guard tho boss entertainers, and hoping they would soon give another such party. The music furnished by tbo Union Guard Band is too well known to need comment. “My Dear Hubbell.” Says the Virginia Chronicle: Among thoso to whom tho Republican Con gressional Committee (of which “My dear Hubbell ” is the Chairman) addressed its circulars was J. E. McKernan, agent of tho Western Shoshone Agency in this State. The price set upon Agent McKer nou’s head was $18. While no doubt feeling the deepest in terest in tho success of the Republican party “ under the circumstances in which tho country finds itself,” and while he, with other patriots, “looks with dread upon the possibility of tho restoration of the Democratic party to tho control of the Government,” Mr. McKernon will not send $18 to “My dear Hubbell.” Mr. McKernon isn’t very flush at present. In fact that sterling Republican, McKernon, to whom “ My dear Hubbel ” appeals so strenuously for $18 to keep the wicked Democracy out of power, is at present serving a term in tho State Prison for forgery. -- -• A Painful Operation. J. Johnson, a miner at the Silver Lick mine, was taken very ill Monday night. The Superintendent, thinking ho was about to die, hurried down to town and called out Dr. Williams. Upon examina tion it was found that Johnson was suffer ing from strangulated hernia, the knowl edge of which, out of false delicacy, had been concealed as long as possible. Eflbrts to reduce tho hernia were made at once, but thoro boing no oonvonienoes for the operation at tho mine, tho dootor ordered ms patient brought to town. Lato in the night Superintsudont Shandor and Dr. Williams drove down from tho Silver Liok, fortunately without accident, supporting the sick man botweon them. A consulta tion was held by the attending physician with Drs. Bishop and Hagar, at which it was decided to make an incision into the patient’s side and roplaco the entrails. This was successfully dono and the physi cians have some hopes of their patient s recovery. I ii format ion Wanted. The wife of Joseph Griffin, who lias not hoard from him for four months, is desir ous of learning his whereabouts. When last heard from ho was at Candelaria, Ne vada, and was thon on the eve of depart ing for Inyo County, California. Any per son knowing tho whereabouts of said Jo seph Griffin will confer a favor on bis family by sending such information to Mrs. Joseph Griffin, Pioohe, Nevada. Tho Ladd lea* Ball. The ball given by lloscuo Hose Company No. 1 on tho evening of the Fourth was delightful. A’good manywere there, the music was tine, and everybody had a go i time. There was a little breeze that oc curred which threatened to make **ome discord for a while, but it passed away harmlessly, and joy was unoonflued. independence day. Inspired by freedom, Our lie porter Tells Wiiut lie San. -■Gmrtrftry-to- ruhrr'tlTe' FmilttrT5f ~JTrty,'J barring tho grout heat, was a fair day. Thero wero no whirlwinds and nobody Rwallowed a pock of dirt between sunrise and sunset. It was a grand day. The lit tle boys are counting the days to the next Fourth already. Tho little girls, though, were the beautiful feature of tho celebra tion. Dressed in whito, and away up yon der in that tall, star-decorated wagon, they made a spirited and charming repre sentation of the thirty-eight States of the grand Union. Little Geraldine Fitzger ald, than whom there is no sweeter little lady in the country, graced tho exalted seat of tho Goddess of Liberty. The Centen nial Guard boro themselves with the air of soldiers. Their band, as did the Ital ian band, made good music. The fire com panies turned out in splendid trimmings. The little ladies who controlled their re spective destinies for the day could not have been better chosen. The military magnates looked grand, splendid and com* posed. Tho Benevolent Association of Italians displayed patriotism for their adopted land and stood tho sweltering heat as composedly as though under the fervid rays of Italia’s sol. But, without dispar agement to any others who took part in the procession, the native Americans, by misnomer called Indians, were the “gelo rions” featuro of tbo show. Undor the generalship of our brother of tho quill, Major Marsden, they rode in all styles gracefully, especially tho squaws, like clothes-pins, and with hair a l’abandon. Tho exercises in tho Opera House were unusually interesting. Marshal Sadler, covered witli dust ami perspiration, grace fully introduced tho President of the Day and then sat and listened. Tho President, Mr. A. L. Fitzgerald, introduced every body else in his owu easy, gentlemanly manner. But wo cannot help, in a mean spirit of hypercriticism, venturing that he did seem to lean too much on his printed programme, as though every time ho made an announcement lie felt like saying: “ Now, ladies and gentlemen, fellow citi zens and patriots, this slip is responsible for what follows, not myself.” The Ilev. Crawford recited the Lord’s prayer and read correctly another invocation. The children would have sung nicely, no doubt, but, through somobody’s failure to drill them, they did not sing as well as they would have done. Mr. Charles Allen ex hibited a line voice in the reading of the Declaration. He had a hard and thankless job. His evident lack of appreciation of the subject, his unfamiliarity with the text, and his monotonous genuflections made his onslaught upon poor old King George (stale already) almost flat and unprolitable. Miss Vance’s reading of “America” was bright and breezy? The little woman outdid herself (and overdid the piece just a little bit). But she deservod the rousing encore she got from the audience, who were uproarious in her praise. Captain John E. Plater's address was line. It was listened to throughout with out the loss of a word. We have only his eulogy of Garfield. This was good, but. in our opinion, it was not a fair sample of his oration; hence we do not publish it as we have not the whole discourse. Cap tain Plater’s address evinced in its com position considerable careful read ing and a fine appreciation of rhetoric. It was both practical and pleasing in ex pression. And then he spoke it. Bight from the shoulder, as it were, and no man uscript mummery. He prefers, as did old Socrates, to write his words upon the hearts of men rather than upon the skins of dead sheep. The Captain’s delivery was very good. We shake hands with him on it., composition, speaking and all. TURF MATTERS. The Two Days Racing: at the Wil lows Track. The races yesterday and the day before were largely attended. The number of entries were not largo, but the various events were hotly contested and proved to bo quite interesting. The track was soft and slow, and very dusty. Pool selling was brisk on both days, and money did not appear to be as scarce at the track as it waa said to be about town, Fins? iuy. The first race was a half-mile dash bo tween Cheyenno, Bay Frank and Rowdy. Cheyenno passed under the ropo a neck in advance in 55 sooonds. The horses were bunched at the start, and made an exciting struggle down the homestretch, Cheyenne forging ahead almost impercepti bly. The second ovent was a four-mile race against time by a horse named Bullet Neck. Ho carried 133 pounds, and made the distance in 9:16. The third race was a mile dash botwoen Cheyenne, Cloudy and Frank, the first named winning in 1:57, although Frank was the favorito in the pools. SECOND DAY. First race—One mile trot, 2 best in 8, for a purse of $50. The entries were Sin gleton’s horse Prince and Powell’s horse Jim. Prince won easily in two straight heats without a skip; time, 8:24, 3:2G. Prince pulled a wagon and Jim a sulky. Second race—Punning, one mile, 2 best in 3. Entries, Frank, Bullet Neck and Cloudy. Frank won tho first heat in 2:02*4, Bullet Neck second. Cloudy had tho worst of tho start by two lengths, but orowded tho others, with no chance to pass them, until near the finish, when Dr. Bish op, who rode him, drew him up inside tho distance lino. Bullet and Frank made a protty and exciting neck and nock race all around tho circle to tho three-quarter pole, when Frank gradually drew ahead, and won by two lengths. Second heat—After considerable delay tho horses were brought forth. Jimmy Hall straddled Cloudy in place of Dr. Bish op, Charley Doan was mounted on Bullet and Frank Barnes on Frank. They were tapped off neck and neck. A few yards beyond the line a scramble took place be tween Hall and Dean, and tho latter claims that the former caught hold of his bridle aud held it half way round tho track. Frank took advantage of tho war between his rivals, and darted ahead at a thundering paco. At tho half ho had put fully 100 yards botweon himself and his pursuers. Then began a handsomo strug gle. Hall and Dean had apparently de clared a truce, and determined to reduce tho gap between them and Frank. They gained at overy bound, but the advantage was too great, and Frank passed under tho string fully 40 yards ahead. Then there was a howl! Thaorowd immediately gath ered in front of tho Judges stand, and sent un a cry of “foul." Everybody seemed worked up to tho highest pitch oi excue mont. A few bitter words were exchanged and then blow foil upon blow, until the scene was like a pitched battlo. The crowd surged and swayed, and tho dust rose up in clouds from tho restless, tramping foot. Finally there came a calm, and out of the depths of the crowd emerged some bloody faces. Tho Judges intimated that they would give their decision in the evening, aud ordered tho other events on. After considerable delay the boys’ pony race took placo. Tho distance was a quar ter of a mile, and there were 12 entries. Willie Bishop won the first prize hand somely, Bart Powell the second and Andy Himpaon the third. The ladies' tourney for the) $75 prize was a spiritless affair. There were throe entries—Mib. Theresa Campbell, Mrs. C. O’Laughlin and Mrs. Hank Knight. Mrs. Campbell was Awarded tho prize. The Judges of the races wore Jim John son, J. 0. Peters aud Tom Keogh. They, last night, rendered a decision in the race in which there was a claim of foul in the afternoon, awarding the race and stakes to Frank, but declaring tho pools off. -+ Tribulation of a beau: Patrick dressing for a party—“Bedad, now, aud I shan’t be able to git these boots on until 1 have worn them a toime or two.” THE SIX-SHOOTER. Terrible Fourth of July Wind l'|> on lluby Hill. - SblTTfiy afler~mi(ThTgTiToT the Fourth of 1 July ono of thoso deplorable shooting scrapes occurred on Ruby Hill—such shooting scrapes as are not sufficiently legislated against and which do not meet with that degree of public condemnation which their heinousneBS calls forth. W. J. Penrose, a constable, undertook to in duce a drunken scoundrel named Jack Weyburn to go home. Mr. Penrose said he spoke to him as kindly as ho would have addressed a brother. The man offered some resistance, when Penrose in sisted upon his going, and took hold of him to put him out of Muffatt’s saloon, where he was making a nuisance of him self. Just how the shooting took place we are not able to state. It is enough to. know that the wretch Weyburn, who had boon m iking the rounds of the saloons, out of ono of which he had boon forcibly ejected earlier in the night, saying that he was going to kill somebody before morn ing, shot the peace officer who was trying to discharge his duty with only such vio lence as was necessary. Weyburn is a Welshman and a miner. Nobody seems to Know much about mm. Ho lias disappeared. There is a reward of S300 of fered for his apprehension. The fugitive’s disappearance was remarkably sudden. He cannot he found. It is surmised that friends of his on the Hill are secreting him. It is hard to blame friends for sheltering a friend, hut in this case it does seem that they are snatching a cowardly scoundrel from justice and depriving the law of the land of its just and proper retribution. It is sincerely t<> bo Hoped that Weyburh will he soon caught and tried. If he is guilty, he can’t bo hanged too quick. Penrose, the unfortunate victim of the pistol iu this case, is well known here. He has many friends. Ho is a big-hearted, generous follow. Until stricken down by the coward’s bullet ho was full of manly life, as buoyant and cheerful as a boy. It was a sad visit our reporter, a friend of j his, made to Penrose’s bedside yesterday. It seemed a foul and execrable deed that every word ho uttered should cause him pain; that every breath should make him aware of the murderous lead that the drunken assassin had pumped into his , vitals with a six-shooter. The poor fellow may live. God grant that ho may. His wife, who is on a visit East, has been tele graphed for on the advice of liis attending physicians, Dr. Both and Dr. Thoma. The ball entered his chest from the right side. It cut his lung, as is evident from his spitting blood when he coughs. The doc tors say if the ball becomes incistod ho will live; if it does not, he will die. The crisis will bo reached probably not before to-morrow. Penrose is a man of fine phy siquo and splendid nerve. These qualities often enable a man to pull through a dan gerous illness. We believe that if bodily endurance and pluck will savo a man, Penrose will live. His friends should he very careful. In their great zeal they should not forget that much may depend upon the patient’s being allowed to rest aud not he mado nervous with too much company. For his sake, and theirs, too, let them keep away from the sick man two or three days, anyway, and in the mean while be hopeful and look for the best. riOtllE PK'KIXUS. From tlio Record of July 1. Tho Indians of Lincoln County arc about civilized. They play poker, drink whisky, steal horses, and elope with tho squaws belonging to other men. The Mormons have decided to commence a war of extermination against the grass hoppers in Clover Valley. They will do this by bringing the Tanaca belles down there and having them stamp the hoppers to death. Mr. F. W. Clute, while in town, and speaking of his trip, says that Ward ap peared to bo the best camp he had been in. The people there appear to be doing a fair, steady business, having all tho Taylor Distriot trade, and it amounts to consider able. Taking all in all Ward’s future is bright, At tho Day mine tho usual work is going on and tho mine looks as well as over it did, ore being exposed at all points. Tho furnaoe is now doing better work than ever, and twice, when they had a sufficient quantity of lead flux, 1UG bars a day was taken out. The bullion is very rich. It is thought that the company have made ar rangements to acquire a sufficiency of ail flux ore necessary for smelting purposes. At a meeting of tho Republican County Central Committee, June 8, tho following method of apportioning delegates to tho county convention was adopted : To allow one delegate at large for each precinct in which a Republican vote was cast at the last election ; one delegate for over 8 and under 25 Republican votes ; an additional delegate for each additional 25, or fraction of 25 Republican votes. This apportion ment will make tho number of delegates 31. STATE JOTS. Carson Tribune: Jerry Schooling is a candidate for the Gubernatorial seat, and there is no mistake in this assertion. Among tho 148 insano persons brought from Stockton, there were not five native Americans. Among the women not one. The Veterans’ Home. The Pacific Coast Veterans’ Homo As sociation have reeeivod from Mr. Holmes, proprietor of the Kellogg Springs, Califor nia, an offer to sell that property includ ing houses, lands, horses, furniture and everything connected with the Springs, for the sum of $50,000; or he will give, independent of any sale, 300 acres of fine land near the Kellogg Springs. This latter offer appears in tho estimation of some members of the Association to excel even that made by the citizens of Stockton. Tho Association has also received an offer of 1,848 acres of laud, situated about three miles from San Rafael, for which tho sum of $120,000 is asked. From San Jose comes an offer of 350 acres, 250 acres of which are ploughed and containing 2,500 fruit trees, for which the sum of $12,000 is asked. To the list of places which the Committee will visit has been added tho Sulphur Springs property in Solano Coun ty, about three and a half miles northwest of Vallejo. Wlmt Is a Sfnscottsf Both dictionaries and scholars fail to answer tho question, whloh the opera with the title constantly arises, what is a mas ootte? But tho visitors of Monts Oarlo tell us it is a fetich—a luok-bringor. All gamblers are superstitious, and draw their inspirations from tho oddest circum stances. A mascotto may bo a sou or a sixpence witli a hole in it, a button, a look of hair, anything wbioh tho punter has associated with a lucky turn. Alms to a beggar—mascotte; denial of alms—mas eotto; seeing a hunchback or whito horse— mascotte ; seeing a black cat—mascotte. Three year* ago a little hunchback at Monaco" derived largo returns from stand ing near the table and rubbing his bump at the request of tho players. He had a tariff. Once, 5 francs ; a long rubbing, 10 francs ; for standing half au hour bo hind a curtain player and not rubbing for others, 20 franos, At the end of tho sea son, returning to Paris on the train, he was seen to throw away hie hump.
