THE EVENING NEWS.;
OOLJ> HILL. X. T.. MONDAY EVENKG MARCH 7, 186* ; NEVADA AND THE RAILROAD. The advantages we would derive from a ; system of railways in the Territory cannot i well be too highly estimated. The immense amount of transportation now being done by ; means of animals, and also the certainty of j its rapid increase demands that some other | cheaper and more rapid means of conveyance should be provided. It is estimatcdjthat the people paid ont over ?12,000,000 for freight and travel over the different roads from Ne vada to California last year. This makes everything we use or consume very costly, and consequently greatly enhances the price of labor, and the cost of working the mines. Whenever it is we want railroads, every body echoes back, railroads, railroads. All seem to see the necessity, but no one moves to make them. A little more than one year ago. Congress made a most magnificent grant to an enterprise, which will, when com pleted, yield enormous profits to the share holders, and be of the greatest value to the new Territories through which it passes. This enterprise ? the Pacific Railroad ? has j not met with the success which it deserves, j The minds of the capitalists of the eastern j cities are too much engrossed in obtaining j " shoddy" contracts to give attention to this * great undertaking in the west, and men of j this coast seem to prefer to grasp all the j " feet" they can, than hold a less number j and develope them, and so without attention j and capital the work has gone tardily along, j so tardily in fact, that but little progress has been made. Congress has been the best friend to the undertaking, for only a few days ago the telegraph brought us news it additional grants had been made by tha j to hurry on the accomplishment of the un- J oertaking. The Territory of Nevada will de- j rive more benefit from the completion j of the Pacific Kailroad than any other Terri- ? tory that lavs along the route, and this bene- t fit will extend both to ;he people and to the I mines. If that part of the road which will ] extend from its western terminus eastward, j as far as the Reese River conntry, were com- j pleted. nearly all thft freight which would be ] used in this Territory would be transported j by steam along the great highway, and in j less than a year after the road was completed, there would, probably.be four times as much freight as there was before. The mines that are away east of us could have wood brought them. They could get machinery without J paying such enormous prices for freight as they are now compelled to do. Mills would be erected at convenient places, and mines would be worked with rich results, which, without the railroad, would be idle for years, if not forever. An unparalleled tide of erai- J gration would set in. Branch roads running to all the mill and mining towns would in a short time be constructed to carry them wood and haul their quartz. The large level plains which extend their arms among the mountains all over this |Territory would make the cost of constructing railroads this side of the Sierras comparatively light. ? j The benefits from a road of this kind would come to all classes of our peo ple. It woulu benefit workingmen, because. First, it would diminish the cost of living. Second, it would create more employment. Third, it would enhance the price of " pros pecting claims," of which it is presumed each has a full supply. The capitalist would be benefitted, because, first, it would very mate- j riallv diminish the cost of working his mine j and crushing his ore, thereby tearing him | much larger dividends ; second, it would in- I crease the market value of his mining stock ; i third, the new improvements made would | give him more opportunities to invest his I money advantageously. The Pacific Rail road is an undertaking, fostered and aided by the General Government, for the benefit of the whole country, yet the direct benefits which we will derive from it, are so great that it almost seems as if the great work was for the especial benefit of Nevada alone. Then let the men whose interest it is to have this railroad across the mountains, sub scribe liberally to hurry the work along. Let the rich corporations of this Territory con tribute each a part of the money they will save by the completion of the road, to hasten forward the undertaking. If the people of Nevada are not willing by this or some other way to aid a mammoth undertaking, redound ing so much to their own good, then let them no more complain of the work being carried slowly forward. Let's have no more cry of 44 slow coach." The enterprise is not as slow as the coach in which they prefer to ride. THE BATTLE NOT SO SLOW. When the Government took this rebellion in hand, *e had two great problems : one mili tary ? to put down the rebellion in arms ; the other political ? to reconcile the revolted popu lation. The latter will be discussed when the latter is solved. The first involves no less than four of the greatest military operations known to history ? the blockade of three thou sand miles of sea coast; the defenses of our capital and our land frontier ; the opening of the most important rivers in the world, run ning a thousand miles through hostile terri tory ; and the destruction of the rebel armies. We had no army, and our navy was scattered to the four quarters of the world. No nation has dared to declare our blockade inefficient ; we have defended our frontier and the city of Washington, and pushed the enemy far from the frontier, until we have to look for him far down towards the Gulf of Mexico. In the beginning of the war we cared mainly about Baltimore and the Ohio, and Lexington, Mis souri. Now we cease to care even about Nashville, and Memphis, and Vicksburg; and our interest is concentrated on the mountains of Georgia, and in the midst of Alabama. The opening of the Mississippi has been ac complished. The dispersion of the rebel ar mies has beett, to a great extent, accomplished. Europe has said we are slow. We remember that the great Wellington took six year* to drive Napoleon out of Spain, a country only as large as Virginia, and he retired because of reverses elsewhere. Four nations of Eu rope took four years to occupy the Crimea, a country about as large as New Jersey. Eng land took twenty-eight mSnths to suppress the Sepoy rebellion, about as great an under taking as to put down rebellion among the negroes of a county in South Carolina. The Late Ms. Rashbtte.? The remain* of the late Joseph Rassctte, who was acci dentally lulled in the Chollarmiue, last week, arrived at San Francisco on Saturday night's boat from Sacramento, and were buried yes terday at 2 o'clock r. M., from the residence of his family, N'o. 27 Post street. An ac count of the accident which caused his death appeared in our columns last week. The Occidental, a beautiful literary week ly, appeared yesterday in Virginia, under the management of Thomas Fitch & Co. The matter of the first number is mostly origins] with it, and from minds capable of happily presenting the truths and beauties of literature. May the OccuUntal long lire as a generous help to the moral glorias 0/ the Occident ! 1 ? ? ? ? ? m THE MISCHIEVOUS B. FAJCILY. A* a people we are no less free of the com binations of political tricksters and dema gogues, than the people of other countries? in fact, not so much so ; for no election, how ever small in importance, but that under standings are mutual between parties, and, doubtless, means are used to carry their in tended points. We look upon all this politi cal stock jobbing as injurious to a healthy state of society, and not exactly in accord ance with our belief in the free spirit of our institutions. But it is permitted, or allowed, and the people must put up with it, at least till it assumes a ponderous attitude to carry an unprincipled set of men into high position and power. The professional politician is above all others the most to be despised and avoided. We are carried to these conclusions by the actions of late, of the Blair family ; which might signify an association, or corporation, but it only means a family given enitrely to political proclivities, aud self promotion : The father of the " young Blair" himself a politician, received uotoriety as being editor of the official organ of President Jackson. ? What he ever did to enhance the general interests of his country, is very hard to tell. But he has three sons now upon the theater of action, and from late accounts, are trying . to do what ? Why, to break down the Ad- j ministration, and to unite with those claim- ; ing to be " conservative" in the elevation of ; Grant to the Presidency. Their effort is re ceived with more startling effect, from the fact of the large share of honors and j power bestowed upon this family, and from their supposed fealty to and love for the j Union org&nisation. But tfcere is no ac- j counting for the actions of politicians. Fran ! cis P. Blair, Jr., after receiving the appoint- ; ment of Brigadier-General, and creating j more disturbance in Missouri than forty j Brigadiers are worth, got the smell of a little j blood in the South, and finally concluded to j resign his commission to resume his place in , Congress, after an election from Copperhead votes. He seems to be annoyed and vindic tive because he was not supported by the Ad ministration men for Speaker. But the worst feature is the opposition of Montgome ry Blair, after accepting and holding on to the high position of Postmaster-General. 1 It is a well authenticated fact that he did op pose the election of most, if not all, of the Union candidates for Congress at the elec- i tion in Maryland. His Rockville speech, in ' that State, would have been more creditable j to the " strongest" Copperhead that walks our streets. The third brother has the honor of being Governor of Michigan. He seems i more inclined to mind his own business than his two illustrious brothers. That this fam ily, who wield a large political influence in the United States, should be anxious to unite with any party, and to pitch upon any avail- | able candidate, to defeat Mr. Lincoln, is hard to tell. We will be surprised if Grant per mits himself to become the tool of men, who, at heart have no sympathy that beats in com mon with his own ; but a base desire to raise themselves into public notice, through his good name and gallant achievements. FIRE. It is hoped that as many of the members of Silrer Bar Hook and Ladder Company as possibly can do so, will answer the call made on them in another column of our paper, and it is also hoped that the people of Gold Hill generally will take some little interest, at least, in the protection of their homes from fire. We have urged this necessity upon them time and time again, but they seem to care as little for the safety of the town as Nero cared for Rome, when he fiddled while ;t burned. The town has escaped fire a long time, and people are becoming careless in its i use. The winter has been very dry, and hot | weather is now coming on. If a fire should ! once start, our buildings would bum like tin- j der, and the people would then regret that they had not taken greater precautions. Take these precautions now ; give assistance to the Fire Company organized now; or ganize others, and, above all things, provide them means wherewith to work. A Plvg-Hat. ? The beautiful shiny silk hat, so generally worn in cities, is not very fashionable out in the alkali region of the Humboldt. The editor of the Register had one sent to him, not long since, which seemed to have ereated quite a "sensation." He publishes the following refreshing sketch of its first appearance after its arrival : " That hat, won of Lovejoy, on the late elec tion, has arrived. Fine affair ? but. more'-* the pity, the extravagant cuss threw himself entirely too" heavy ; sent a seventeen-story black plug ! | Undertook to wear It, the other day. Scared a ! team, which threw a man out of the wagon, ! smashed wagon to kindling wood ; frightened a I gang of old piutes, who thought they beheld the I turret of a comiog monitor ? and as they ran : 'hmugh Dixie the people there concluded the coming man was an Indian war ; shut up houses, and took to the mountains. We got home as soon 14 possible, and got out of that hat. Quiet has been restored, and we have concluded to send the "hing ahead on a team, next time we go to Cali 'irnia. and wear it there. ' The cylinder of civil iiation? that one. anyhow, doesn't prevail, in i t Je?e parts. Humboldt revolted tlrst against the I recently proposed constitution, and its people ! were styled 'soreheads.' Whatever the reason , .nay be, they wear soft hats." John Randolph was once violently abused in tbe House of Representatives by an ignoramus, who happened, by tome strange freak of the jopular will, to occupy a seat alongside of gen tlemen. When the hour had concluded his re marks, Randolph arose and said : " Mr peaker -I am food of kicking ; bat in the present in stance I ask to be excused. It wrenches me very .a?Uy to kick at nothing." A small journal, pub mhed somewhere between Virginia and Canon, las boorishly attacked us several times. While we are aa fond of kicking at John Raudolph ever was, we ask to be excused from kicking an iu ignificant object incapable of resistance. ? Terri ?orial Enterprise. The above is intended for the Old Piute, without doubt ; for, it seemed to be an at tempt to adapt a leveling style, and that will | bring the Washoe "Ingun" down to the plain of the white booby in Virginia. But in the comparison, the heathenish aborigfte is ? " among the.immortais. The few who were not born to die." Yes, indeed ? far too high for any skim milk poetaster to reach op to pull him down ! " CONSOLIDATE," savs the spirit of the day. Every thing in social policy favors aggregation. The ticket that takes you into the show is marked " Good for one gentleman and two la dies." Everything that is good for a man now* days, is good for several women. Tou get socks cheaper if there's a prospect of your having to buy long stockings tome day .?Humboldt Remit ter. Exactly so. A few persons in Virginia not long ago attempted to get Storey county consolidated? but the big, overgrown, gaw key, the Enterpritt, (cambric handkerchiefs and cologne water !) killed the measure by simply advocating it. As an election is go ing on in Virginia to-day, we shall not be at all surprised to hear that every candidate whose election has been favored by the boor, haa met with a Waterloo defeat. If Brigham Yonng should lose one of his five and forty wives would he be a widower ? ? -Kz dmmge. Not muchly? aa Artemus Ward would say. A man with forty-four wives left, can hardly be said to be alone in the world. Is IT I ? The vigioette on th* new 2-cent news paper wrapper looks like the mug of Old John Brows.

The transactions in stock for the week ending March 5th were an improvement on the week pre vious. Two Boards in Virginia and one in Gold Hill are in nucceisfttl operation, and measures have been tak-n to establish two others in this city. They will bo in full blast, also, during next week, and the rage iu mining speculations will no doubt be greater this *e4son than ever before. A number of elaims in American Flat have come into notice recently, and others have risen mate rially iu price, indications of a ledge having been found. The value of ground in that locality is not altogether arbitrary, an *ome persons suppose, J and the increased firmness with which stocks iu that district are help is an evidence of the confl- I deuce which holders have of their intrinsic worth, j Some outside stocks have also attracted the atten- I tioa of dealers, but transactions in them were i very limited. VIRGINIA DISTRICT.

The Earthquake in Santa Clara Valley. Santa Clara. March 5?12 M. ? At 10 minutei to 9, this morning, wo experienced the heaviest shock of au earthquake ever experienced in thin valley, of recent years. The motion was from west to east, with a general rolling motion in all directions. The church steeples shook back and forth like trees iu a gale of wind. So fur aa heard from, no damage was done. The motion lasted over two luinuten, and was constantly followed during this period by shocks lighter and greater, fjoods suspended in the Btorcs remained in motion for seven minutes. The weather js heavy: the wind from the south west, with indications of rain. 31 owning at Stockton for Starr King? The Earthquake. Stockton, March 5 ? 12 m. ?

The shock was so violent that many persons ran into the streets. San Francisco Items. [From iho Jonrnul of Friday.] A LOMCKOUS Sce.ve.? Xighi before last a lu dicroari scene took place on Mission street. in a boarding house where there were n number of lodger*. It appears that a lady, who wan in the habit of Kitting up late and clearing her tire-placo before retiring, happened to deposit the burning ciuders into a box in the hall where some person had inadvertently placed some soiled articles of clothing. Shortly after every one had been a*leep :he clothing began to burn, and tilled the house J with smoke to such a degree that the tdccpers were awakened by the odor of burning rags. Presently the whole box was in a blaze, and the inmates of the various rooms, fancying that the house was on tire, rushed into the passage in their sleeping robes, some of which were as transparent as the Binile of day. The shrieks of a few timid ones brought the neighbors in. but when the cause of the alarm was seen, they relapsed iuto quiet and began to inspect each Others appearance. The sight was worthy of a master artist's hand, for natural nature was visible on every hand. They ail appeared to be tickled to death at each other's appearance, and roars of laughter filled the hou>>e ; but as soon as all saw themselves as others saw them, the znauner iii which naked bro thers struck out for concealment in their respec tive rooms, was a caution to all slow coaches. DIEI> FOR Love. ? All that can be found out as regards the cause of the late suicide at the Seal Hock House, is that the unfortunate man was desperately smitten with a young lady of this city who did not, or would not, or could not, or ought not to reciprocate his passion, so he smote himself for being smitten with that which wouldn't smite him back, and blew the top of his head off to prove the passion of his heart. O, Love! what hast thou not got to answer for, if you are ever required to give an account of all that other folks have done for vour sake and their own 1 Muchly, indeed ? muchly. P. S. ? Since the above was in type we are iu formed that all the stories abont the love matter is devoid of truth. Accident on the Pennsylvania Cen tral Railroad. [From the Pittsburg Pout, Jan. 18. J One of the most frightful occurrences, almost without a parallel in the history of railroad ca tastrophic*, the great amount of property de stroyed, without loss of life being taken into con sideration, occurred yesterday morning on the Pennsylvania Central Railroad, about four miles east of Tyrone. Mr. John W. Brittingham fur nishes us with the following particulars : As the Philadelphia express passenger train ar rived withiu about six hundred feet of bridge eight across the Juniata river, the hind axle of the tender broke in two in the centre, and the wheels flying off on both ijjlMOf the track. The train at the time was in full motion, and before the brakes could be put on, the engine reached the bridge, dragging the two express cars, which were on the track, to the edge of the abuttmcut, when the coupliug between the tender and ex* press car parted, the engine and tender p;issing over the bridge without further injury than de scribed; but not so with the remainder of the cars. The first express car was precipitated a distance of about forty feet into the Juniata ; the second express and baggage car, containing the mail and baggage of the passengers, are piled in one heap. The first passenger ear, mostly freight - ed with soldiers, rolled from the bridge, breaking into a hundred pieces, following which was the second passenger car, which, as it plunged from the track into the river, turned bottom side up. This car drew the Philadelphia sleeping car from the track, the front pan renting <fii the top of the second passenger and the hind end on the abutt meut of the bridge. The Allentowu sleeping ear remained on the track at the edge of the bridge, it still being coupled to the Philadelphia car. The accident took place at such an early hour in the morning that most of the passengers* were either asleep or just waking from a morning nap, so that but few realized their perilous situation till the whole affair was complete. Most of. the passengers in the sleeping cars were awakened by being piled promiscuously either to the side or end of the cars. The cars had hardly atruek before the cry of fire was raised; the baggage and first and second passenger cars being already in a blaze. This produced a consternation among the passengers which beggars description ; aud their entire powers were called into requisition to save them from being destroyed bv tire. Men who before were unable to stir on account of their wouuds, crawled from the car windows, and by great exertion dragged their bodies from the de vouring element. The great height of the Phila delphia sleeping car from the ground mnde escape from it perilous indeed. Mr. Brittingham occu pied nu upper berth in that car, near the state room occupied by Mr. Cass. The shout was rained that Mr. Cass could not get his stateroom door open, which was corroborated by Mr. C. calling for help. But men crawled over him not heeding his efforts to relieve himself, each and every one iutent ou saving himself. But Mr. C.'s shouts were not in vain. An English boy with the assistance of Mr. C., pushed the door open and he escaped. Mr. Brittingham was still in the car rendering assistance &to those who were but slightly injured, when the fire was conveyed to the combustible matter which ull sleeping cars contain. His only chance of escape was bv leap ing from the car window to the ground, a dis tance of some twenty-five feet. He made the leap without sustaining any injury. By this time the cars were being fast consumed by the fire, save the two express cars. Those destroyed by fire were the baggage and nil the passenger cars The news of the accident was soon communicated to the inhabitants in the neighborhood, and brought men, women aud childreu to the scene, each anxious to relieve the sufferers. Excitement is Aurora.? We have received, through the politeness of Mr. Robert Rowland a copy of the Esmeralda Star, of the second. From it we learn that on that day a great excitement oc curred in Aurora, in con^equenoe of the ?heriff endeavoring to protect the brother of 3/asterson who wan lately hung by the Vigilance Commit tee. It seems that he went there from Carbon, to settle up his brother's affuirs, and he had be en there about a week. As lougaa he quietly ut ieuded to his own business, no attention was paid to him ; but be soon commenced making threats against different persons, and was notified to ieave the town, which he refused to do. The sig nal gun wad tired, and in about twenty minutes tour companies were nnder arms, determined to carry out the order. At this juncture the . hcriff went to the house where il/astcrson was stopping, took him under his protection and lodged hiui in jail for safety, placing an armed guard of men ipposed to the Committee around it. This action of the Sheriff only served to inflame the military, who determined to force open the prison, take him out at all hazards, and make him leave im mediately. Finding the military and the people so determined, and iu order to avoid bloodshed, J/astersou hail advice of his friends and conclud ed to leove. Mounting ahorse aud escorted by the officers, he accordingly left the city in the af ternoon. ? Carton Independent, CATTLE dying. ? The Los Angeles Star says : " It is truly melancholy to learn of the great amount of cuttle that have died lately on differ ent ranches throughout the county. It is admit ted, that ou somo, one half of the stock have pe rished from hunger, and there is great apprehen sion that many more will yet be lost, if a favor able rain should not shortly come. In passing over the plains it is sad to see the number of dead cattle ; while those that survive present an ap pearance such as to produce sympathy for the suffering dumb animals. Many of them appear like skeletons, and seem unable to move far from the springs aud water courses, from which they receive nearly all that prolongs life. On the ranches near the mountains, the fatality has beeu much less. Sheep are doing* well, and we have heard of but little loss in horses." A QUESTION answered.? Rev. Dr. Hitchcock, in a lecture on "Duty and Destiny," delivered iu Brooklyn last evening, before the Long Island Uistorioil Society, met the question of " What shall be done with four millions of emancipated slaves V by asking, " What shall be done with all the red-whiskered men, and the blue-whiskered men, and all the white-haired men ?" This ques tion, he added, was as sensible as the other, and both wero the same kind of sense? which was uonsense. lie conceived that there was no diffi culty in answering either query ; the freed blacks, like the freed whites, wonld do honest work for honest pay. So that problem would solve Itselt The issue of this war, he said, was to be chaos or cosmos, and he thought it would be cosmos.? N. Y. Evening Poet, 21st, SCARCITY OF Beef. ? We were informed yester day that a great scarcity of beef cattle exists In our a4)oining counties ; and as a natural conse quence, the butchers have been compelled to 'visit our city in search of what they cannot get nearer home. Yesterday we saw several of those gentle men in Carson, from Washoe, Ophir and Frank- j town. We are pleased to learn, however, that our fellow-townsman, Mr. Fowler, was in position to at least partially assist some of them out of their uncomfortable positions. ? Carson Indepen dent. DON'T All Go! ? The question is not who is foing to Washoe this season, but rather, who is not agoing? We hope there will enough remain here to take care of the womeh and gather the cropa.? Pttaiuma Arg%$. Rev* T. Starr King* The San Francisco Bulletin , of Saturday evening, contains the following sketch of the order of exercises for the funeral of this emi nent divine. The Remains of the late rev. t. .starr Kino? the Arrangements for the funeral T0-3/0RR0W. ? He who would have preached in the Unitarian Church to-morrow, to-day lies in front of the pulpit ; the lips are motionless that have been wont to thrill through aisles now filled with those who come not to hear but to look their lust upon their former loved pastor. The altar is draped with National flags, bunded with crape ; and over the pulpit and the baptismal tont are crosses of Egyptian lilies. Afr. King s remains are in a metallic racket, over which the A/usouic pall and the flag he loved so well float their heavy folds. The casket has a glass plate cover, permitting the people to see once more, before bring committed to the earth, the features of the deceased. Little change has taken place in their expression ; the face has the tranquil look of a patient man who painlessly passed away in to death, und traces are there of the smile he wore j while liviug. The body is dressed in a full suit of j black, the hands crossed peacefully on the breast, j where a wreath of pnre white flowers has been i placed by mourning friends. The church was j thrown open at 12 o'clock to admit people to I view the remains, and from that time to the pres- J ent writing the streams of human life hus been ; continuous, pouring in at one door and out at (he j other. Jtfany tearful faces bend over the coffin, \ and all seem to feel that it is no ordinary loss they j are called to mourn. The body was taken from the house to the ! church by the Trustees and a Masonic deputation ! this morning, and followed thither by Mrs. King. | Throughout the day it has been attended by a ? guard of Masons, aud it was said that an hono rary guard of soldiers had been delegated to at tend by the Governor. It will lie in state until 10 o'clock this evening, and from 9 o'clock, a. m., until noon to-morrow. At this latter hour the church will ho closed to make preparations for the funeral. At half- past 1 o'clock the doors will be opened, and the congregation nre requested to be iu their pluces before this time; at 2 o'clock, the fuucrol exercises will commence. These will be couducted by the Graud Master of Masons, of which body Mr. King was Orator at the time of his death. The Rev. Mr. Kittredge will assist, reading the 23d Psalm ? the one repeated by Mr. King on his death bed? and the closing prayer of the Masonic ritual. The Masonic and religious exercises will be Intermingled with music, some of the best artists of the city having volunteered their services. Several fine chants will be sung, among which is the magnificent anthem " I know that my Redeemer llveth." The remains of Mr. King are to be buried In front of the altar, in a vault which will be built there. Over the grave a monumeut, in keeping with the architecture of the church, will be erected. The Supervisors have consented to this burial ; it is also the wish of the widow, aud pro bably would have been the desire of the deceased. It certainly seems right that the Pastor should repose in the church which he was foremost in building. Probably a larger funeral will be seen to-morrow than has been seen in this city for some time.
