THE NEWS.
Dispatches to-day tell of the President β
adv&oce so far as Albany, on hit " tour.
It i» related that he is maneuvering to
draw Gen. Grant into an endorsement of
his administration, but though a corres
pondent thinks he will succeed, he has not
as yet obtained the ap proving speech he
seeks. Gov. Fenton welcomed the "Chief
Magistrate," at Albany, in a neat and
cautiously worded speech. Maxy's case
is given up—in Paris. Crapcau don't
like the way the Russian Bear and Amer
ican Eagle wink at each other. A very
toothsome correspondence, between Mar
cus Ward, of New Jersey, and Henry J.
Raymond, of Xew York, is telegraphed
to-day.
Bi lly Billion.—The shipment of bul
lion from Gold Hill, by Wells, Fargo X Co.'s
express, during the month of August,
amounts to 352 bars and 1$ sacks, valued at
$692,134 2S. To this should be added SSO,
000 worth of bullion sent to Virginia assay
ers by the Yellow Jacket Company, and
shipped from the express office in that city.
This aggregates 5772,134 28 as the August
yield of Gold Hill mines, so far as assays
indicate. This is the largest monthly ship
ment ever made; but it is confidently ex
pected it will be the smallest of the last fire
months of 1S66. The yearly average it
ciphers exceeds nine millions of dollars. Is
it necessary to call attention, in so many
words, to 'the fact that the Gold Hill mines
are giving out ?
September First.—The ca« of the
Union Pacific Railroad ran to Fort Kear
ney to-day.
Carpenters is Portlasd.—There is s
paradise for journeymen carpenters at
Portland, Maine, the demand for them be
ing to great that $3 50 per day is freely
given. There is plenty of work tor all
the carpenters in that city, and it will con
tinue to be so for some time to come.
Population to thb Square Milk.—
Of civiliiH nations. Great Britain is the
most densely populated, and the United
States the least. Great Britain has 265
inhabitants to the square mile ; Italy, 19S;
Prussian Germany, 1S6 ; France, 179;
Austria, 167 ; Russia, 31 ; Turkey, 20,
and the United States, 19.
Ax article in our fcaper to-day, copied
from the New York Erening Post, on the
New Orleans Riot and the President's ac
tion thereon, deserves a careful perusal
from eTery Union man. The Post has
been a strong defender of the President,
during the last session of Congress ; but
now it arraigns him at the bar of public
opinion with no mild phrases. Read.
The Mississippi River.—It is a very
common thing for discoveries to be made
about the Mississippi river, and the latest
is that of the St. Paul (Minnesota) Pio
neer, which fears that the river is drying
up. The Pioneer says tho average depth
mf water is steadily decreasing, and the
ordinary "June rise" has never appeared;
but it takes comfort from the reflection
that railroads are still in existence to con
nect St. Paul with the rest of the world.
A Habd-worxino Emperor.—The
Austrian Emperor is said to be the hard
est worked man in the Empire. He rises
before five in the morning, and until seven
Tisits the various encampments around
Vienna ; at eight he receives his Ministers,
and then, until one, receives and pays
official visits, after which a Council is
held. In the afternoon the Emperor visits
the hospitals and transacts an endless va
riety of business far into the night. With
all his excessive labors, however, the Prus
sians have beaten him.
KïMARKADLK SENTIMENTS. — OTHlï οι
our exchanges are given to publishing
once in a while the strangest statements.
One of them introduces a poem by the
following editorial remark: "The poem
which we publish in this week's paper
was written by an esteemed friend who
has lain many years in the grave for his
own amusement." Another complains
indignantly at the manner in which the
body of a suicide was treated : '· She was
buried like a dog with her clothes on."
The New York Detectives. — The
Superintendent of the New York Police,
it is said, has discovered that many of the
detectives of that city are in secret league
with extensive gangs of counterfeiters.
The head of the detective force has been
removed on this account, and there is
great consternation among his subordi
nates. When officers of justice, upon
■whom people rely to detect villainy, be
come secret confederates of rogues, the
evil to society can scarcely be measured.
Seizure or a Seaman ox an American
Ship, bt Prussia.—It appears that whilst
the steamer Baltic was lying at the port of
Bremerhaven, Prussia, loading for New
York, the Prussians claimed one of the
sailors as a citizen of that country.
Whether he bad been naturalized in the
United States or not, was not known, and
the United States Consular Agent surren
dered him, but the Captain of the Baltic
protested against the seizure as a violation
of the rights of a seaman on an American
■hip. The facts have been laid before the
Government at Washington, which will
so doubt investigate the matter.
A Canadian Crisis.—Mr. A. T. Gait,
the Finance Minister of Canada, having
resigned his position in the Cabinet on ac
count of a difference with his colleagues
upon a change in the Lower Canada school
law, there Is something like a crisis in
Canada. The general anxiety there, how
ever. to retain Mr. Gait in the Cabinet has
led to a postponment of all the school law
questions, and it is thought he may be
prevailed upon to return to his seat.
British America, until the confederation
of all the Provinces is accomplished,
threatens to be in a sort of an anarchical
condition. Rival parties in all the Prov
ince· hope to gain advantages bv the con
federation, and are waging bitter conflicts
with each other upon what would be re
garded in the United States as very small
points ot difference. ,
THE CAMPAIGN.
With the month, the campaign may
fairly be said to open. Although there
have been no primaries held, no conven
tions on cither side, yet from this day on
the issues are to be presented to the peo
ple from press and forum on an already
determined platform of principles. And
now inquiring: What of the hour ? we
find stronger indications than were ever
afforded, so early in the canvass, of a Union
victory—and a Union victory of unpre
cedently large majorities. If you will
look for the evidence of strong Union sen
timent, and its advance in conversions,
you will find abundant signs of a royal
triumph for the Union organization in
November next. Never before has the
mam issue been so simple and clear ; nor
has it ever happened that the importance
of the contest was more marked by dan
gers m defeat threatened, and vast Na
tional and State advantages, in success
assured. Among the " proofs of
prophecy" that may now be congratu
lated upon, at the beginning of the can
vass, is the fact that the journals of this
State are, with a single exception, earnest
in the advocacy of the principles that are
certain to be laid down in the State Con
vention's officially proclaimed creed. In
no instance is there hesitation or luke
warmness. Much less do we witness, as
wo have heretofore, any professedly Union
journal engaged in advising "Demo
crats " how best to manœuvre for a vic
tory; and so furnishing aid and comfort to
the enemy, and giving reason to expect
thut a defection to our cause is likely to
occur in the form of a newspaper flop.
All now stand agreed upon the Constitu
tional Amendment as the grand plank in
the party's platform. This is a significant
and cheering fact, which may profitably
be considered by the wavering, which
may be remarked with a gratification that
here-and-there exhibited errors and in
firmities of temper cannot abate.
TV
merely for lovo of Country—though the
peril of anarchy be at our very doors—
you are solicited and conjured by the love
of freedom in this country. The Unity
of the Nation may have been established
beyond the power of any rationally ap
prehended revolt to break or impair, or in
any serious degree temporarily disturb ;
the fact that this is a Xation may be
irreversibly determined. Even so, there
comes the question—all the more impres
sive, because of thorough National vin
dication. Shall Freedom, or shall the
Spirit of caste bear rule in this land ?
Xot less grave and momentous is the is
sue. If traitors are admitted to seats in
Congress, there will not be a civilized Na
tion on the face of the earth that will
have lees of real freedom afforded the
humbler classes than will be conceded in
these United States, within ten years'
time. The progress of civilization will be
checked in America, and Time will strike
the hours of the Dark Ages on this very
Continent. Barbarism will again be term
ed "chivalry," aye, authoritatively or
"officially" proclaimed as "justice," "in
alienable right," under the folds of the
Stars and Stripes displayed from Capitols
and Court Houses. AU the considerations
that moved us to duty in the Union ranks
during the war, are now redoubled in
force by the exigencies of the hour. The
President elected by the loyal people of
the Nation, has developed his determina
tion to break down the Union party and
secure the admission of Jeff's comrades
into the Federal council chambers. If he
and those associated with him succeed,
Tyranny will triumph at once in " eleven
States," and ultimately—unless a new
civil war is forthwith inaugurated—Lib
erty will ccase to be anything more than
a name for mockery and scoffing in the
" American Republic."
The vote of Nevada, her unflinching
adherence to the Union party principles, is
of so much consequence, that with greater
readiness and more intense zeal than ever
before we propose to enter the canvass
and fight it out on the Libbbtt Line.
The Union ticket, composed of men true
to principles, will receive our hearty and
unflagging support; and such are the
mighty matters involved in the election of
the right kind of men to either House of
Congress, that with "staunch and true" can
didates for those positions, we should even
bo willing to overlook any imperfections
that possibly may be noticable in the mi
nor candidacies;—preferring to have good
men from Nevada in Congress, even if we
are involved into voting for a nominee for
State Printer who would be willing to sell
the influence of his paper in time of civil
war to the enemies of our country, pro
vided he could obtain a cheap opportunity
for so doing.
American Military Inventions. —
Russia takes a very great interest in the
improvements in military science lately
made in this country, and has sent an
officer of the Iioyal Russian Mining En
gineers— Capt. Kholostoff by name—on a
tour of inspection throughout the United
States, with instructions to make monthly
reports to the Home Government. He
has visited the armory at Rock Island,
Illinois, and lately witnessed the casting
of the twenty-inch gun for the Puritan, at
Pittsburg. At present he is in St. Louis,
and it is said has arranged with the inven
tor of the Rodman gun to furnish some of
that kind of artillery to the Russian Gov
ernment.
Niagara jokes, some good and some
bad, are announced every season, and the
latest is that of a rural gentleman and bis
good wife, who watched the falls one day in
amazement, concluding certainly that
there was a great waste of water, but it
would no doubt soon run out. The
next morning, however, the gentleman
was up bright and early, and peeping out
of his chamber window, he announced,
with the greatest astonishment depicted
on his countenance, "Wife, I'll be derned
if the water ain't still going over that
dam !"
Tickled to Death.—An Indianapolis
paper gives an account of the death of a
little girl in that city from tickling. A
mother and her child had been out walk
ing, and on returning home the mother
began playing with the daughter and tick
ling her. This she did for some time,
until the child, thoroughly exhausted,
struggled to escape, and in doing eo burst
a blood vessel, which caused her death.

The Philadelphia North American, edit

attending the President's visit: It is a no
ticable fact that of forty-six members of
the Common Council and twenty-fivo
members of the Seloct Council, less than
twenty are at present in the city; and of
these a considerable number are Demo
crats. The Mayor Is taking the only rest

the absence of any municipal participation

W. Hoffman, J. S. Lawler, J. D. Defrece
and W. J. Caman having called a meeting
at Philadelphia, September 3d, of the
National Committee appointed by the
Baltimore Convention of 1864. Henry J.
Raymond, Chairman of that Committee,
publishes a call that the Committee shall
meet at the Aetor House, New York City,
on September 3d. Marcus Ward, of New
Jersey, a member of the Committee, pub
lished a letter, re-publishing the Raymond
call, and saying to Raymond :
You have deemed it wise and proper to
abandon the great Union Republican party
ot the country, and to connect your name
and influence with a new organization,
designed to destroy the cause with which
I sympathize and of which I am in some
small degree a representative. Your pub
lic action has been such that I cannot
acknowledge your right to use the title
under which the meeting has been called.
The mature character of the trusts con
fided in you and me forbid that we should
use them except in accordance with the
spirit in which they were conferred. So
deep and wide is this feeling in the popu
lar mind, that all who shoold respond to
your call would be regarded as betraying
the party they have ceased to represent.
Raymond replies:
It i« a matter wholly within your own
diicretion, whether you attend the meeting
of the National Executive Committee,call
ed in thie city for September 3d ; but I am
not aware that you have a right to over
rule the action of the National Conven
tion, by which, in common with you, ·Ι
was a member of that Committee, or jjiat
of the Committee itself by which I was
made its chairman and treasurer. I need
not inform you that the meeting of the
Committee can only be held where the
call is made by the proper officers, and
that actifin taken at meetings not so called
can have no authority. My object in call
ing this meeting wns to affo*d the com
mittee an opportunity to take such, action
in regular form, as in its judgment the
conditions and interests of the Union par
ty may require. If its members do not
choose to attend, my duty will be per
formed. I am obliged for .. e opinions as
to my political course, w... ch you have
honored me with. I true:. do not under
rate their importance, or that of the dis
tinguished source from ■*. ich they come.
I have no desire to controvert or comment
upon them, though a· at present advised,
I certainly prefer my own. I hope I shall
not need to add that I have no desire to
hold any official position in the National
Convention of the Union party, or of any
other, against the wish of its members ;
but I deem it my duty, especially as this
is not merely a matter of personal feeling,
to insist upon regularity of action as the
only mode by which that wish can be as
certained.
.Vichignn (Jnlon Polities.
Detroit, August 30.—The Union State
Convention to-day nominated Oov. Crapo
for re-'election,. and adopted resolutions
declaring that the work of reconstruction
belongs to Congress ; that it is tbe duty
of the Government to protect the South
ern Union men against rebel neighbors ;
that the spirit of the rebellion crushed, a
war is revived at the ballot box, and that
a necessity now exists that loyal men shall
bind themselves together to resist it.
The ninth resolution reads :
"That we scout and scorn, as unworthy
of freemen, that political blasphemy which
says this is a white man's Government.
It is not a white man's Government, nor
α black man's Government; it is God's
Government, made for man, and all men
who are loyal, whatever race, color or
condition, shall have under its triumphant
and glorious flag all those inalienable
rights which pertain to man as man."

New York, August 31.—The steamer
Arizona, with California dates to August
10th, arrived to-day.
The Market.
The Commercial's .money article says the
stock market is dull, singularly so consid
ering the large speculative interest outside.
There is no disposition to buy or sell.
The chief activity is in 5-20's of '66,
which are dealt in largely on speculative
account. The whole Government list is
subject to active speculation. Purchases
for shipment and investment are for the
moment checked by high quotations.
Twenty millions of the temporary loan
have been redeemed at the Treasury, and
the balance is being rapidly liquidated.
Gold is weak and easier. The announce
ment of further shipment of coin from
England is making the bulla cautious, and
there is an apparent disposition on the
part of holders to unload. ·
The President'· Mpeecb.
Chicago, August 31.—A special cor
respondent of the Republican, who is with
the Presidential party, says the Presi
dent's speech at the Delmonico banquet
was very skillful ; referring now to Gen.
Grant on his left, and then to Admira
Farragut on his right.
This was followed by Mayor Hoffman,
who proposed the health of the two offi
cers, as supporters of the President. This
placed them in a position which was not
to be easily retreated from, and there is
little doubt entertained but that Gen.
Grant will be so worked upon as to make
α speech fully defining his position ; which
will no doubt be the one occupied by the
President. Certainly thus far the trip has

France has done little to revive the old
friendship between her and the United
States.

Constantinople, August 29.—Affairs in
Turkey arc in a very bad state. The revolt
in Candia progresses. The inhabitants of
Crete have asserted their independence of
the Turkish Empire. Constantinople is pro
claimed in λ state of siege.
Senator Coi,b.—The San Francisco
Flag, of Wednesday, quotes the follow
ing from a letter received by a gentleman
at the Bay, from U. S. Senator Cole, da
ted August 2d :
Quiet prevails here since the adjourn
ment. The Philadelphia Convention
awakens some interest. It will be largely
rebel, and very slightly Union. The war
has by no means extended the right of
free speech throughout the South. Anti
slavery men are worse off there to-day
than they were in 1869.
The rebels do not, nor have they any
reason to look upon themselves as con
quered. What is to come of it all ? God
only knows ; look at New Orleans. It is
a great pity that the country shonld be
brought back to this.
We have received a letter from Senator
Cole, in which ho quietly inquires :
"Didn't we catch a Tartar in 'Moses ?'
I have done my best to find excuses for
him in my own mind. But he is really
rotten, clear through. You often see such
smooth-barked tree·."

Lively Fioht at Alt a.—J. S. Tam,
the expressman, gives us some particulars
of a remarkable and desperate fight which
occurred at Alta on Sunday afternoon.
It was a one-sided affair as far as numbers
were concerned, and the principal charac
ter exhibited feats of agility, endurance
and strength that astonished the residents
of that belligerent town. A man named
James Sexton got into a fight with another
man, and was likely to seriously hurt him,
when a constable interfered to stop tho
fight. Sexton immediately turned his at
tention to the constable, and was getting
the best of him, when the latter called for
help. Five or six persons came to his as
sistance, but Sexton, nothing daunted,
launched out right and left, knocking
dowr. every one within his reach. Othors
came to their assistance, ohd after a des
perate struggle Sexton was thrown to the
ground, and it was supposed secured, the
officers leaving half a dozen men to hold
him while they went for handcuffs. Sex
ton rested a few moments, when he raised
in spite of the efforts of the parties hold
ing him, knocking several of them down.
Another struggle, similar to the first, en
sued, and Sexton was finally again thrown
■ - — · " ■- ■ - A
DUU UailU(,UU6U· Λ.+ ν ■> —.«v. —
time until he was fairly rested, when he
jumped up again, and with one wrench of
his wrists broke the handcuffs with the
greatest apparent ease, and stood ready
for another encounter. After this he was
furnished with a revolver and deringer by
some friend, and fired one shot, and was
fired at once by one of the constables,
neither of the shots, however, taking ef
fect. He then left the town, but camped
near by, and at last accounts he wan de
fying the whole town to take him. We
are informed that Sexton is rather under
tho medium size, but he must be well put
together and of extraordinary muscular
power.—Nevada Gazette.
Tub Rohders op Captain Teal.—We
learn from the Grass Volley Union addi
tional particulars in relation to the rob
bers of Captain Teal, who were arrested a
few days since in Marysville and carricd
to Grass Valley :
The parties are known a» "Rondo Jim"
and Dare Devil Dick." The real name o<
the latter is ntiid to be Robert Mellon.
Rondo Jim is about thirty· five year» old,
about five feet nine inches inhight, weigh
ing about one hundred and sixty pounds,
and wearing u mustache. Mellon is a
mere boy about seventeen years old, of α
slender frame, his face being quite pale.
Both parties were recognized here, on get
ting out of the Marysville stage, by per
sons from Washoe, who hod seen both of
them frequently in Virginia City. Mel
lon was recognized by Captain Teal as the
man who shot him. The Captain was
not so positive about the other, but thinks
he is the man who stood at the horses'
heads.
Λ Johnson Man Rejoices.—Since the
removal of Union men and the rumored
appointment of Bigler, the Democrats be
gin to rejoice. A day or two since fl
group of them got together and the subject
como up, " Well, boys," said one, " these
d η nigger worshippers is getting
cleaned out. Old John Bigler is got
office, and Dimocrats begin to hold their
heads up again." "Yes," chimed in an
other, "and Johnson will clean out this
'ere Court House of these Radicals, and
appoint county officers as is good Demo
crats, too. Andy'll show these fellows
that's denouncin' him that the Democracy
ain't dead yet." And so they proceeded,
discussing the chances for deputyships
and receiving the promise of Johnson for
a "clean sweep" as a promise of county
