All think ing men are well aware whence emanate the falsities it daily a|M>ata into the la|« of ita grotuiUu* »ubscribere. Tha fact ia,that to-day in all th« Amer ican Union there ia no U-tter governed Statu thau mneh abueed Nevada. There ia not ao prosperous a commonwealth in tha Xiaerwun ltepublic; not a commu nity existe upon tha faco of Qod'a crea tion, of e<|iuU nuuilwrs. »litre ao littla want and Buffering from poverty axiat; not a locality iu all the world can h« fonnd «htr» an in<lo|>eudeuco eau be half do toon secured by thrifty, atea<ly laboring men aa In thia slandered State.

True, we have bail men; with these all communitire are curaed. We have thieves and criminal*, rowdiea and robbora—even murderers aonietimea immigrate into thia State. We have alao loud-uouthtd politiciana and brawl ing demagogues, political ami business swindlers. Labor reformers who ucver work, and political reformers who d<> nothing but " beat" and vote. We have all these. Like troublesome insects they annoy the people fur a time, but Anally fall upon and destroy each other.

Ouly in this affliction are we worse than they, llaniu li•* will cliug to ships and wire worms bore holes in their bottoms. Thea they must be dry docked and repaired. Thia Fall this will be done, and Sutro and hie crowd of minor barnacles, be scraped off the bot tom of our Ship of State. The Cud and Chrmittr need only pstience to wait and common sen** to understand the traueformation. Meanwhile let ue re peat—Nevada ia not badly governed. A TKIVMI. MImTAKI As an illustration of the trivial mis takes which high-minded uud honorable men will occasionally make, til" Chicago I'ott aaj JJail gives particnlara of an in cident which recently hnpponed in Kan tat. and to which tb* people of that Slate make casual allusion. A man liv ing iu Ihs neighborhood of Parsons was auspected of horse-stealiug, the moat flagrant offense known to a Kauaaa commouiiy. Filled with righteous in dignation at tbia affront to the sacred causa of joatice, a select company of cit izens sought hi* r**id«nce, called out the supposed thief, and, in the course of conversation, gently lifted him np toward the limb of a convenient Im, by mean* of a rope, gav* him an am pi* supply of ammunition by th* judicious distribution of two dozen bullets in dif ferent parts of his clothing, and retired to thrir virtu"U* onnehea. This would not hav* I-ecu worthy of mention but for a discovery which was accidentally mail* th* n*xt day. The jury which compUtad thi* job so elegantly nre slightly vexed at the thought that their night's labor waa in vain, for the horse thief is still alive, Ilut the man who lived next door to Kim will never 1h> holi est or ateal horses again. It appears that our worthy frioud ami scientist, W. Frank Stewart of th* Vir ginia CluvmicU, ia to have a rival brforo the Democratic Stat* Convention for Domination to th* office of Stat* Mine ralogist. The Eureka Stnliiirl of August Htb announce* that Mr. John A. l'ortar, of Eureka, will contest the honor of this nomination with Mr. Stewart. We don't care how many candidate* the Democrats have, nor how bitterly they mako tbe contest for th* nomination. Oar only solicitude is about the proha ble termination of tbe Sralutri mania for announcing candidate*. It is really pelting serious. Bests the Neva.la Tri bune. The " Great East" doesn't seem (thi* i» parenthetical) at all baahful in aaaerting claims for office this year.

Cannon. the polygamoua Delegate from Utah, haa b«n rs-slected in the (ace o( the lav which provides that no polyga mut shall take hia aeat in Congress. Thia fault, tars a Washington diapatch, can be clearly laid at the door* of the House Committee on Elections, of which Congressman Smith of New York la Chairman. It ia believed that had the committee adopted the Haxleton res olution, providing for Cannon's expul sion, the House of Bspreasntativea, in fluenced bjr public opinion, would havs paaasd it. The vote in the committee was evenly divided on the subject, or rather, the committee refused to rejwrt a resolution providing for Mr. Cannon's •xpulaioa. and aleo refuted to adopt one aakiug to be discharged from the further cjuaideration of hi* ca»e. It was doubt less the intentiou to intimidate Mor mons through the bill reorganizing their courts, and members of the House pre sumed that, inaamuch as they liatl thus far reprimanded the Mormons, that they would not again attempt to aend to Con gress a declared and actual polygamist. It waa suggested thst if Mr. Csnnon was allowed to retain hii seat until the expiration of hia term of service, the next delegate from L'tah would at all events be neutral. The result is just the reverse. Cannon haa been returned, and the solution of thia Mormon prol> lcm will again vex the members of the present Congress, who thought they had disposed of it aaliafactorily. FOOT KAClMi.

Following in a portion of the urticle referred to: We have always supposed that Mr. Sutro'a candidacy for tho I'nited States Seuate waa a mere burlesque, but yca terday we ascertained that he (Sutro) ia a bona fide candidate for Senatorial hon or*. Of all the impudence we ever heard of this ia the venr sublimity of check, and how aeuaiiilu men dare stand before the people of free America and advocate the claima of such a man, we are at a loaa to oonceive. We met yesterday, an honorable gentleman who ie connected with the management of the Virginia lmlrpn«lrnl, and in a jocular way inquired if he was really in earnest in advocating the claims of Mr. Sutro. To our aatonishiaent and chagrin ho an swered in the affirmative. And this Sutro is the man who dares to come be fore American people and talk of oppo sition to monopoliee! We aay, without any fear of successful contradiction.that admitting Mr. Sharou to 1» the mou opnliat and eitortioniet his enemies claim him to be-admitting the "Hank Ring" to be the cauae of all the misery that the workiug rlaaa of Storey county ia subject to this man Sutro with hia tunnel echeute ia ten thousand times a worse monopolist than ever the I'nited States produced.

Abont forty years ago, a kidnapping ■a*e occurred in England which waa rery like the present Philadelphia affair. I child waa uulncted and ita fntlier no. illed that it could be ransomed for MM). The afflicted parent returned word hat he did not posaess £K,(KN), and the ■obben answered him by aaymg that he lad rich frienda, and muni raiae tho nouey demaudod, or the child would lie liattgured for life. So great waa the ex ritement that a fund waa started to aid ihf man. Oue gruUeuian, however. en tertained a xiupu ion that it vm not all right. It ia a wall known fact that the liauk of Kngland never reisanea ita notea. Tha gentleman, going to the I wink, procured Home new notra, audde kirrd the officiate to take their number ind to notify him when the notea were returned, and. if |<o*sible, to aacertain from whom they were received. A abort time after theae note* had been given to the father of the child, the gentleman had notice from the I wink that the notea lad come in. Ue found that tha notea lad been aent in by a bank in the North >f England, and he immediately aturted 'or that locality. There be learned that ;he money waa deposited by a pereon ivho had opened au account. The gen leman and the bank clerk returned to L>ondou, and word waa aent to the father hat • doe to the kidnapper* had been outid, and requesting him to meet them it a apecified place. Immediately upon lis coming into the room the clerk ex claimed, " Why. that ia the man who >pened the account." The man waa irreated and tried.

After about two and a half mile*' ride the top of a hill ii reached, where a loud, roariug noise 1* distinctly heard, and eighty rods further on briugs ui in aight of the well. A dense fog or mist envelopes the derrick, engine-house and tauka, while fully one thousand person* are then gazing on tho woudcr of Armstrong comity. The derrick haa conipicuoualy placed under it, in large letters—' llos« Well' and ' Creswell City.' There arc two 250 liarrel tanka full of oil; nlao two, 1,200 barrel tauka. one of which ia full.

Ho further stated that, ill his opinion, the well started off out of th* 2-inch pipes at the rato of 2,500 barrels ]>erday. ITo also claimed that, although this was al most incredible, he believed that if the full atream waa turned on now it would it would d<> at least 2,000 barrels. The well ia claimed to b« tho largest ever struck in the lower region. A fanner walked up to us and offered to sell his adjoining farm ot 100 acres for $100, (MIO, which ten dsys ago. for farming purposes, would not have brought $1, 000.

Ilia wife was consumptive, and he kept it on hand several years in anticipation of her death, lint she rallied last Spring, and his hopes were blasted. Never shall I forget the poor man's grief when I iwkedhim to pert with it.
