He coined much money by his definitions. Dickens' greet novel, " Our Mutual Friend," is finished. There will be a great rush for the whole volume. The Dayton jail is now empty ; and there is not a divorce case on the Lyon county District docket. Equalization.—The Board of Equal ization of Virginia City is in session to day. Look to your taxes. Ueo. B. McClellan has arrived in New York City. This appears to be about the most obscure item in our Eastern ex changes. Dayton and Carson folks have lots of fine skating round about. Skating parties are being organized in this town and Vir ginia, for trips to the ponds. " Lodi " kor Sale.—The celebrated thoroughbred race stallion " Lodi," fa mous for his fast time, is to be sold at auction on the ICth inst. The Government is about to take steps to rebuild the Arsenal at Harper's Ferry, burned by the rebel troops when the war first broke out. Tub Examiner is mad as a March hare about the conduct of Wm. J. Shaw, State Senator from San Francisco, of '· Demo cratic" endorsement, who promptly intro duced the resolution ratifying the Consti tutional Amendment abolishing slavery. Intsristi.no to Ladies.—To prevent the frequency of " breach of promise " cases in the English Courts, α bill will soon be introduced into Parliament en acting that a promue of marriage, to be held binding, so that the breach of it shall constitute a ground of action, must be given in writing, and be attested by two competent^ witnesses. The London Tim*» reviews our tlnan cial position. In presenting the treasury estimate, it says " there is not any reason for doubting that the Americans can, if they will, sustain the taxation which these estimates assume. Their resources are enormous, and their energies inexhausti ble. but the prospect, for all that, is a very seriouc one." School Teacukks.— To-day and to morrow is the time set apart by the Board of Examiners of applicants for School teachers, at the office of Col. Collins, the County Superintendent, on Β near Taylor street, Virginia. The Board consists of l)r. Qeiger and Judge Whitcher. Several applicants were examined to-day. Λ Harrishuro paper tells of a man who has failed in business four times ; been upset in a stage coach, and thrown down an embankment of sixty feet ; fallen headforemost through a hatchway in a store in Reading ; has been married three times, and is the father of twenty-one chil- ι dren. " He still lives," and is in busi- ! ness at Harrisburg. Wirtz, before his execution, informed the government where his official books and pa 'pers could be obtained. These documents hare been sent for, and it is believed that the evidence found in them will determine wheth. er another court shall be organized for the trial of young Winder and Duncan, now con fined, in the old Capitol, and others holding higher positions in the rebel service who were I implicated in the Andersonville barbarities. Thb English press are generally well pleased with the appointment of Earl Russell as, virtually. Prime Minister, who .has received from all his colleagues prom ise* of cordial support. The Times which was at first for Gladstone, now come» out for Earl Russell, on the singular ground that he is the only one who can settle the difficulty between England and the United States. Rbcoc.xt.—The following are the Candi· J date· for Legislative office·, a* now made ' known : For Speaker of As<embly—Banks, j of Humboldt ; James, of Storey ; Crawford, ; of Como ; Williams, of Lander. For Clerk j of Assembly—Allen, of Ormsby ; Gillespie, ! of Storey. For Sargeant-at-Arms of Assem- j bly—Carson, Sherman. Smith, Littlefield, of | Storey ; Woodruff, of Humboldt. For Pres ident pro tcm of Senate — Slingerland, of Washoe. For Serjeant-at-Arms of Senate— | Peasley, and Paul, of Storey ; Pixlev, of j Ormeby. Tu* argument on the Mandamus writ; on the Treasurer of the county, virtually j on behalf of the school teachers of the j county—whose salaries are not paid by reason of an injunction laid by R. M. | Daggett—ia now being made before Judge Mesick. The Answer which has been J filed, ia principally confined to the asser- ! tion that R. M. Daggett ia Superintendent } of Public Schools, and that John A. Col· I lina ia not the incumbent of that office. The sustaining of the writ will give teach ers the money they have well earned and continue the supervision of school affairs under respectable and intelligent auspices. Or the election in Chicago, the Tribune, of that city, says : " The lesson of the election haa been a good one in proving that the Re· j publican organization is stronger than the strongest possible coalition that can be made | against it. But the result does not prove ' that there exists, either in the Republican ! party, or in the community, any feeling other j than hearty sympathy and good-will to those who have fought our battles and risked their live· that we might have a country and a home. Indeed, a majority of the returned soldier· themselve· voted the Republican ticket. The result simply proves that the Republican party is true to the usages which alone can maintain its existence, and make i It· principles effective in the government of j the country." "Tub Bloody Ninth " is what they call an Indiana regiment lately returned frShi Texas. It is claimed that they have created more havoc iu the rebel armies than any other regiment from the West. ENORMOUS DEBT OP VXEOIHIA CITY. ' Well, our mines are bad enough off in the market. They could not be much worse, if they went fora "pint of pea nuts " a share. True, we think they are bear-ed ; and have no doubt but that " Yellow Jacket" will come up to a nor mal price—at least a thousand a foot within the next two months. But they are bad, tliey look gloomy on the stock bulletin-board, their figures seem to ra diate a kind of feelable darkness—of the Egyptian sort—round about these com munities. But, Shades of feeble finace, ye rise not upon us from the deep caverns of the earth, as yc come down upon us from a higher plane than that on which we dwell ! We confess that we were astounded be yond measure, as after our long and labor ious examinations we commenced footing up the columns of items of outstanding indebtedness against Virginia city. We bad to pause half-way in our work of ad dition, and look over each horizontal line of figures, with scrutiny of what they pur ported to represent, before we could pre vail upon ourselves to make the full sum ming of the amount. And what an ag gregate ! It cannot bo that the citizens of Virginia have any conception of the extent the municipal credit has been run. Even those who hold large portions of the scrip section of dcbt-evidence against the city, laughed us to scorn when we told them that the total of debt would mount up to the record exhibited below. By simply suggesting this probability—that it might reach these figures, we were assured with great emphasis, and with evident sincerity, that we were talking wildly ; and we were compassionately informed that we were talking of something we knew nothing about. So by the subjoined revelation we instruct those who ought to have known exactly what the state of the ease was, what the condition of financial affairs were in Virginia, and we, therefore, may pre sume with certainty on enlightening, vastly, the people in general. The diffi culties that beset and obstructed our way in getting at all the items were numerous, and a recital of some of them would be entertaining ; but we forbear on that in cidental matter, for the present, and offer for your notice and consideration the fol lowing table : Scrip, bearing âvu and six per ceut per utguth lntere>t ®29 467 34 Scrip, bearing three and three and h half per cent per month interest.... 15.382 C2 Scrip, bearing four per cent per month Interest 8,050 00 Scrip, bearing from two per cent per mouth to ten per cent per annum ; General Fund contingent. Firemen'· Fund and Interest Fond 73.294 28 Bonda to the amount of 46,000 00 Interest already accumulated on the entire of above 45,462 86 Total indebtedness $224,8" 10 Closely approaching s quarter of a mil lion of dollar· of indebtedness ! And it will be borne in mind that thie debt has been created of old ; that $29, 980 63 of warrants have been redeemed thi» year, and during a season when the current expense* were all paid up, in cash. So the debt at the beginning of the Sum mer did over-reach a quarter of a million. In view of these statistic*, what Î9 «crip intrinsically worth ? We believe it i* Bell ing for 48 cents. There it to be an open ing of scrip bids, one week from to-day, and then we shall get the rate of worth in the light of the published condition of the indebtedness. Most of the scrip was ob tained for 20 and 24 cent* on the dollar; and the city ought not to have the face thereof txtorttd from her—for extortion a par payment would be, if it could be com manded. This scrip will average an out standing or accumulating intere*t of a year's growth. The bonds draw 12 per cent, per annum. It is a very liberal interest. They were purchased at 45 cents per dollar. Why should any of the city interest exceed this amount ? Will not our Legislature pass a bill that will reduce the entire sum to this figure of earning ? A few day* ago the Urand Jury of the county paid a domicilliary visit to the city and came out of the house recommending that the corporation "sell their proper ty, if possible,"—consisting of two engine houses — and pay the 6 per cent, per monthers the flesh they were whetting their parchment razors for. Thi* was not exactly the parallel of advice : " Sell all that you have and give to the poor —in fact it was more like : " Throw your lone and last two mite* into the creditors' cof fer*,"—and then, perhaps, enslave your selves for life under the bond of the Philistine. The city's property realized from at best price, would not be a flea hit*» fr* 1 ρ cm 11 ν anntiitf ftf thi» scrippers. We ere not about to deal in dictatorial advice to our Legislators ; but we submit to the people, the tax-payers especially, those who have not been and are not speculating in the distress of the city of Virginia, whether they, the people, are not entitled to a partially (at least) helping law ; Should the people be ground down with taxes, the profit mar gins of their small incomes sheared off by the sci«ors of the scrippers,—who would make 70 and SO cents on each face dollar of debt evidence ? Is it not a fair sugges tion, that all the indebtedness be aggre gated as one, by a Legislative enactment, and the entire amount allowed a fair in terest only—say 12 per cent., as the bonds of the city now bring ? Must the " pro perty of the city " and the Building Fund be forced into the reach of the claimants under the usurious interest bearing scrip, bought as against the city for 20 and 24 cents ? Is the argument good,—that those who have now the most interest to claim should be preferred creditors, and paid off in the order of registration ? Should not the whole burden of claim be summed and expressed in one section of law ; and the creditors made equal before the law that provides for the ultimate just pay ment of all ? Dr. Tvno's Church lately destroyed by (1rs in New York, was built in 1848, and eoold accommodate some two thousand persons. It had a splendid organ, valued at $10,000. The fire was caused by the carelessness of some tinners who were at work on the roof. The Tribune saya : " The pastor, the Kev. Stephen H. Tvng, one of our most celebrated divines, was completely unmanned by the sudden and unlooked for calamity. In re sponse to some questions, he declared that the labors of his life were gone, that the Church would never be rebuilt, and that he desired to be let alone, and no longer ques tioned." BRITISH PIRACIES AND BRITISH PRECEDENTS. pT A petition addressed to the Secretary of State, requesting our Government to ao cept the precedents established by Great Britain in relation to belligerent rights and the dutie· of neutral·, and to waive our claims for indemnity, is now in circula tion in Boston for signature·, and will doubtless go the rounds of all our sea ports. The petition aets forth with force and clearness the advantages to ourselves and the justice to Oreat Britain, when the latter may be at war, and we at peace, as far more valuable to us than any sum of money we may expect to receive in com pensation for the depredations upon our commerce. The petitioner* say : "Where she built one Alabama or block ade runner we can build an hundred, pro vided her precedents are allowed to re main. While she has by destruction and alarm driven about one-tenth of our com merce from the ocean, we can at the next opportunity, following in her footsteps, utterly drive the British merchant flag from the ocean, except when convoyed by a steam frigate. They have made the most of their opportunity ; their machine shops and ship yards have enjoyed a pros perity never before equalled. Their ship owners and merchants have fattened upon our distress. They can well afford to pay out of their profits the petty losses which are claimed and still have millions of wealth wrung from us remaining. " Our harvest will soon come, but we shall better their instruction an hundred fold, until not a vestige of British merchant navigation will remain upon the ocean in rivalry with ours. " We pny you, therefore, to retain the vantage she has given us by making no further demands in compensation for our claims, but rather to use your influence with our own Government to obtain pay ment from them for the losses thus in curred by our citizens, and to retain in full force the precedent set by Great Britain as infinitely more valuable than those claims." Mut the notitioners would do well to bear in mind that while Great Britain retains her present power on the ocean she will make and unmake precedents to suit herself. It was by virtue of power that sho permitted her people to make war upon us. If wo had been strong like Russia or France, she would have treated us as she treated them. No pirates were fitted out during the Polish revolution to prey upon Russian commerce, nor to mo lest that of France, while making war upon Mexico. Our weakness upon the ocean was her opportunity, and sho avail ed herself of it to the uttermost. When we are united and strong she will respect us, and when we are weak she will prey upon us or any other nation. Oreat Britain cares nothing for prece dents, except they arc in her favor, and her statesmen will laugh to scorn our threat· to At out pirates to prey upon her commerce, if she has the power to crush them. Her naval officers would hang them in dettance of all precedent·. She recognizes nothing but power—simple brute force. Her code of morals may be summed up in the phrase : ·· Might makes right." Why Hancock is in Maine.—There has been a positive misapprehension as to the cause of stationing Hancock and a regiment or two on the Maine-Canada frontier. It is explained by η Hartford (Conn.) journal, which obtained informa tion through a semi-official source, that trouble is brewing on the Canada border, arising from the desertion of British sol diers. A Lieutenant in Her Majesty's army crossed with a company of marines from Canada into Maine for the purpose of arresting several deserters. Upon their arrival on " neutral soil," the marines would not acknowledge the authority of their commanding officer, declaring them selves free, and refused to return with him. Application was made to the United States authorities to have the men given up, which was refused. The authorities at Washington were advised, and Han cock's corps was ordered to rendezvous in Maine. So it seems that not a "Fenian scene," but an old-fashioned piece of English impudence was the call for Han cock'* rendezvousing in the region where tne «un is raisca wim a crow-onr. California Politicians and thhir Slate.—The following from the Sacra mento correspondent of tho San Francisco Bulletin is only a confirmation of what has been agitated in the political circle* in Sacramento for a week or two past : The slate of tho leaders is said to he definitely made up about as follows : Governor Low is not a candidate, but hi* "friends" will insist on making him Sena tor to succeed McDougali. Felton's friends will assist in this movement, in re turn for which Low's friends are pledged to mako Felton the successor of Conness, Parks is to be next Congressman, and Phelps is to be the next Governor, in re turn for tli· assistance rendered by their respective adherents. If this programme is carried out, Lieutenant Governor Machin becomes Governor, and then who ever is chosen President pro tem. of the Senate becomes Lieutenant Governor. Wanted—A Fenian Plot.—The Can adians seem to be so determined to ferret out a dreadful Fenian plot in Canada, and are laboring so diligently to discover some thing of the kind, that we begin to sympa thize with them and to wish them success. We feel something like the husband of the lady who invariably looked under the bed before retiring at night, to see if there was Dot a robber lurking there. One night, in making the usual search, she found a con cealed robber, sure enough, and thereupon called out to ber husband, in a terrible state of terror, that there was a robber under the bed. "Well," replied the affec tionate spouse, " you have been looking for that robber for twenty years, and I'm glad you have found him."—N. Y. Sun. In Danoer. —The Rev. Mr. Nasby publishes an appeal to his State (New Jersey) to stand firm againit the Aboli tionists. Speaking of the momentous questions involved, he says : Look at what interests are at stake. Do you want to marry nigger wenches ? Do vou want your gushin daughters tied by indisaolutc tie* to disgustin buck niggers ? We hev persistently petitioned Abolishin Legislachers to pass acta peventin us from doing this foul thing, but to no avale. They hev turned a deaf ear to our entrea ties, and to-day we stand exposed to all these dangers. Sh* Got thb Parson. — The Yreka Union is responsible for the following : «· Last Sunday evening a reverend gentle man was catechising three children of hi* congregation. 'If all men who told false hood· met with the fate of Ananias and Sapphira, who would be left ? ' asked the parson. 'Nobody,' answered the bright eyed little Miss Furber. The parson wilt ed. He thought he at least should be ex cepted. 9AÂ FRANCISCO WirATCtt* ι [triCUL DUrATOB TO TUOOIS MILL BA1LT K*W«.) Sax Francisco, Dec. 12—2 r. x. PtKIMI aiwk TfHiMli···. iun.

Hook, at their exten sive manufactory in Treroont street, Box bury, Mass., are now erecting the largest organ ever built on this side of the ocean. It is intended for the church of Henry Ward Beecher, in Brooklyn, Ν. Y., and will proba bly be finished and in use by the close of January. This splendid instrument is to cost $26,000. Though not so lsrge as the Music Hall organ, it will be more symmetrical, and will have the additional merit, in the opinion many, of having been made in the United Several new feature· are to be introduced into the organ which have never before been brought into use in this country, the chief of which is the " tuba marabilc·/ a reed stop of large «cale, Toiced on a very high pressure of wind. A gentleman who heard 'his range of pipes trieuon an organ in England says the encct was tremendous, and that in the grand chorus at an oratorio it overleaped and over powered the combined efforts of the full organ and several hundred singers and instruments. It was beyond his power to descrihe. The Messrs. Hook have the exclusive control of the patent for this improvement for America. The organ is to stand behind the pulpit, and to occupy the whole space from the cellar floor, to the ceiling of the church. In the cel lar will be the hydraulic engines which ore to work the organ ; on the door of the church, and rising to the height of and behind the pulpit, will bo the bellows chamber ; and from the pulpit level, forty feet upwards, will rise the magnificent front of the instrument itself, the massive pipes of silver hue and the wood work, polished black walnut. The breadth will be 27 feet, and the depth 21 feet. Masonic Baptism.—A Masonic Society in New York, called the Lodge of Perfec tion, recently performed a singular cere mony—ft sort of imitation of the usual rite* of Christian baptism. It is thus described : The members having entered in proces sion, were followed by a party with six children, somo borne on cushions and others led by sponsors and parents—a man following behind with the sacred triangle of burning candles. This company made three circles, escorted by the Lodge, the Masens chanting praises. Then advanc ing to the East, they stood before the Grand Master. Prayer was read and a hymn was sung. The orator then ad dressed the sponsors and children, ad monishing them to be true to themselves, their neighbors, their country, and their God. Another prayer was then repeated. A fount of perfumed water stood before the Grand Master. Taking each child's hand, he immersed it in the water, repeat ing its name and the words, » I wash thee with pure water. May God give thee and maintain thee in that innocence and purity of heart of which this cleansing is a sym bol." He then marked on the forehead of each child a triangle with consecrated oil, and pronounced the invocation of blessing. A hymn was then sung ; the brethren knelt and uttered a solemn vow to watch and protect these children through life. Each partook-of salt in confirmation of the pledge. A locket was presented to each of the female children and a ring to the boys ; also tne triangle and apron. A benediction compled the rite. Late Teleorams.—The Union has dis patches stating that Congress purposes giving Mrs. Lincoln $100,000 ; that Dan'l S. Dickinson is after the New York Col lectorship ; that O'Mahony has been de posed by the Senate of Fenians from the Eenian Presidency, on account of perfidy and malfeasance in office ; that the Eight Hour League of New York is on the torchlight rampage; that Congress will remodel the municipal government of the District of Columbin, so as to introduce negTO suffrage into that District ; that General Palmer has issued a proclamation that slavery has ceased to exist in the State of Kentucky, and advising the col ored people to appeal to the Courts for redress, in case public conveyances disre gard their rights of travel ; and that, in San Francisco, on Saturday, Wash. Wright married Mrs. Chamberlain, the " Topsy Turvy " of the Sunday Mercury. Excitement in Coppehopolis.—The ex posure of three of the rascals who gratify their petty enmities by writing anonymous letters to flash newspapers, impugning the rhnraptpra of females, aaainst whom they may entertain a spite, should direct public attention to the practice In such a manner a· to effectually prevent further outrage· of the •ort. Such an offense being fattened upon Tod Robinton, £. A. Gatea, and one Borce, at contributor· of a maliclou· alander to a vile iheet called Our Maxeppa, the populace of Copperoppolt· were on the point of tarring and feathering the perpetrator».
