THE DAILY NEWS.
GOLD HILL, N. T. SATURDAY EVENING? OCT. 31. Wagon Upset. ? It is not our wish to use lessly fall out with any of the officials of Vir ginia City, but, by the ?' boss" who presides over the regions of Pluto, we do desire to call the attention of a certain functionary known as Street Commissioner, to the truly bad condition of the upper end of C street nearly opposite the Chollar mine. To ex plain": there are several places in that por tion of the highway which mav be termed chuck holes or ruts, which should be tilled up with gravel ? which improvement would less endanger the lives of persons traveling in omnibusses ; and would be safer for teams which, after traveling over the mountains, and are just entering Virginia, run a greater chance of upsetting just as they get in sight of the end of their journey. A six-horse team yesterday afternoon actually upset its whole cargo right into the street, "at the very point named, more or less damaging thie goods. It is "none of our funeral," for real ly we live in Gold Hill, which corporation lias nothing to do with that of Virginia, but for the credit and fair but somewhat bloody, name of our sister town, let the street com missioner do his duty. South C Street. ? W e notice quite a num ber of improvements on South C street, among which are seven! fine fire-proof bricks, which are just receiving the finishing touches ? the foundations and lower floors which are being laid for a large wooden building adjoining the White House on the south, and the tine improvement to S. A. Chapman's building at the lumber yard, constitute a part. We ob served also, that several workmen were en gaged laying gas-pipe, so as to extend the connection southward beyond the lumber^ yard, and we could not help comparing the appearance of that locality three years ago, when those lots might have been had for put ting a fence aromMl them, with that of the present. Virginia has certainly grown be yond all precedeut, yet the foundation is there, and she will keep oa until the two towns shall have joined to form the me tropolis of the new State of Washoe. Tell that to the Marines.? The Bul letin tells the people that that the City Sex ton of Virginia is in a state of most abject poverty and starvation because, forsooth, un-" nappy soul, his occupation's gone ; tnat peo ple " won't die in Virginia." What do you do with all your murdered men up there ? If there is a trade in the world that ought to keep a man on the jump, the sextonship of Virginia City ought. Virginia reporters are awful men to joke. The First Snow of the season whitens our streets and roofs and the lofty peaks that tower above us, and lies in drifted neaps in door-ways, window-sills, Jte., giving an emphatic warning that Winter is close upon us, Warm clothing and heavy boots are in brisk demand, and those whose winter resi dences are on the west side of the " moun tains of deep snow," had better be moving thitherwards. Mount Davidson. ? This prominent peak, and twin -brothers, this morning presented a rather ghost like appearance, having for the first time this season assumed its winter habiliments. If the panoramas of the Alps, which we have seen in our time, were cor rectly painted, Mount Davidson must bear a striking resemblance to that portion of them where Napoleon the Greai and his army en countered the fatal snow-storm. Sleigh-Riding. ? The lirst gay and fes tive sleighing party of the season passed our office this forenoon. It consisted of two indi viduals who have not the honor of our ac quaintance. Their turn-out was not exactly a Third Avenue rig, but tfieir steed looked as though he couid go a good deal less than a mile in three minutes. Stock Report. ? In the haste of setting up the Virginia stock report yesterday, the printer made several typographical errors, which we shall take care shall not happen sgain. For instance, that "bully" stock, the 15elcher, was put down at S20 bid and $"20 asked, while in fact the stock is so good, owners won't sell hardly at any price. Dangerous. ? There is a dangerous hole about eight inches square, in the side-walk on the east side of B street, Virginia, which should be closed up immediately, as we may have a broken leg to record, anil that city a bill of damages to settle. Improving. ? We are informed this morn i ng that Mr. Horace Smith who was wound ed in the late affray by Mr. Johnson, is im proving so much that his friends .are quite sanguine of his recovery. His wound, how ever, is very serious, much more so than was at first supposed. Almost a Fire. ? A tar-barrel sitting near the stove in the liquor cellar at No. 30 North C street, Virginia, caught fire night before last, and was only extinguished with the greatest difficulty. It created quite an excitement and a big smoke in the immediate vicinity for some time. District Court ? Judge North Pre siding. ? The attention of this Court has been occupied throughout the morning by the case of the Ophir vs. the Burning 5los cow Mining Company. Stewart, Baldwin and Rising, attorneys for plaintiffs ; Gen. Williams and Judge Hardy for the defense. Judge Wetherill's Court. ? Dan Ryan vs. Jerry Quilan, suit for ?100 claimed" as damages for a black eye received in a fisti cuff ; no evidence beinsj adduced to substan tiate the fact, defendant was discharged. Goldman vs. Stevens, suit for $61 on book account. That Post Again.? Quite a number of praire "chooncrs went ashore on that post at the corncr of B and Union streets, Virginia, yesterdav, and one of them was pretty badly " stove.*' By "backing and filling," however, she finally got off. Pardon-. ? Notice has been filed of appli cation for the pardon of Daniel Turpin, now in the Territorial prison for grand larceny. He probably stole something in " self-de fense." Departures this morning by California Stage Company's coaches : E. E. Rice, Phil lip Parkman, Wm. Simson, A. Staples, M. Galenut, Miss Mary Daley, Nick Prust and W. C. Price. First Snow of '62. ? The first snow of last year fell on the 24th of September. It disappeared in a short time, however, and several weeks of pleasant weather followed. Dill. ? Up to the hour of the Bulletin going to press yesterday, not a single shoot ing scrape had occurred during the day. Fare In-creased. ? The fare upon the om nibus line is increased from 25 to 50 cents. See advertisement. Wells, Fabgo & Co. shipped $15,384 from Virginia this morning. Ackxowledgemet. ? "We are indebted to Hon. Orion Clemens, Secretary of the ' Territory, for a volume of the Statutes of the Second Session of the Legislative As sembly. Redwood. ? The redwood beams under an old house jn Stockton, are entirely free from decay, although they have lain in their position, exposed to the damp, for the last thirteen years. | Benevolence. ? From the published report of the Howard Benevolent Associa tion of Sacramento, we extract the follow ing recapitulation of their operations for the past six years : Persons relieved, 19,187 ; dispensations, 13,862 ; receipts, $58,623 41 ; expendi tures, $58,245 72 ; destitute "sent to friends, 120; deaths, 49. During the past year, 8 patients have deceased. 25 persons have been sent to their friends in the coun try, and they have now in charge 15 aduhi and 17 children. Death of a Pioneer. ? A telegram, dated San Francisco, Oct. 29th, says : Charles C. Sackett, a pioneer and prom inent citizeh, died this evening. He had been in declining health for years. He has been long connected with the press of California, and was noted as a bold and "vigorous writer. He wrote the leading editorial published in an evening paper of I this city yesterday. Deceased was aged forty-seven years, and was ? native of New York. Time Democrats. ? On counting out the votes at this precinct at the late elec tion, three white tickets (the Republican candidates' names were printed on white paper) were found, with every name scratched off, and the Democratic candi dates written in their places. These tick ets were voted by tender-footed Demo crats, who were afraid or ashamed to vote the yellow ticket. We like to see a person a man, or a mouse, or a long-tail rat. We don't like skunks. ? lied Bluff Beacon, Another Man Shot. ? Thursday night a difficulty occurred in the Young Ameri ca Saloon, which resulted in the shooting of a man in the knee by Dr. Sharp. We learn that the shooting was accidcntal, and the party injured had no connection with the difficulty. ? Carson Independent. Sacramento Races. ? The two mile races on Thursday, between Ashland and olscian was won by the latter, in 3:49 n nd 3:50. The best mile was Volscian's I lirs^ in 1:50. No great shakes. Death of a Noted Secesh. ? The Los Angeles .V^lw says a letter has been re ceived in that-, city giving an account of the death of J. Lancaster Brent, who held a commission in the army of Texas, and who was once a chivalry Assemblyman from Los Angeles. S. HAAS & CO,.

ANTIDOTE FOR SCALES AND INCRUSTA TION FORMED BY THE DEPOSIT OF WATER IN STEAM BOILERS, (Used in all Boilers at the London Exhibition in 1862, by order of Her Majesty's Com'n.) G. VEVARO, 627 Front Street, San Francisco, Soi.e Agent for the Pacific Coast. THIS COMPOUND has undergone the examination of the most competent Chemists in France and England, and has bean pronounced all over Europe the best article ever found for removing Scales in Steam Boilers, this great evil for industry. The main qualities of this Compound are: that it removes the scales of any boiler in a ! few days, no matter how old, and it does not injure the metal in the least. The raising of steam is made easier. It saves fuel and work, and prevents all danger of explosion. The Compound has now been in use for three years, and the great success obtained in the Old World induced the undersigned to introduce it on this Coast, being confident of the patronage of this enlightened and in dustrious country.
