Lecture os Japas.—The Hon.
C. K. DeLong, late U. S. Minister to
Japan, had intended to leavo town
last night for Virginia City, says the
Eureka Sentinel of July 29th, but it
having been represented to him that
a public lecture from him, attended
by an audience fee, might be of
service to the sufferers from the
Hood, he kindly consented to remain
for one day, and tell us what he
knows of Japan. The lecture will be
delivered at the Court House; the
expenses will be nothing, and we
confidently expect that Mr. De
Long's generous offer will result in
a contribution of at least $500 to the
relief fund. Of course everybody
will buy one or more tickets ; but
we earnestly advise everybody to go
and be entertained and instructed.
Mr. DeLong knows whereof he will
speak. He has beeu for over four
years our representative at the Gov
' ernment of this most interesting
people! he lias been during that
time the recognized head of the
diplomatic college, and the medium
of communication between the Jap
anese Empire and Christian civiliza
tion. No man is better acquainted
with the facts upon which to base a
lecture on Japan, and all of us who
remember Charley of old know that
no man can deliver what he knows
in a more pleasing manner.
Seeing the Goat.—Middletown,
down in Ada county, about twenty
miles below Boise City, Idaho Terri
torv, is a pleasant little town, and
lms a good many pleasant people
residing within its limits, and they
enjoy themselves very pleasantly by
social gatherings, festivals, and all
that sort of thing. One evening, not
long ago, they had a festival that had
been gotten up for some purpose.
There was a big crowd present and
among tile attractions was a “show”
where they could see any animal they
wished for the small sum of twenty
five cents. The aforesaid “show’’
consisted of a mirror carefully cov
ered with cloth. The parties de
siring to “see” placed themselves
in front of the mirror, and oft naming
the animal they wished to see, the
cloth was raised, and they beheld
themselves reflected in the glass.
Among those preseut, on the
evening alluded to, was a young
bridal couple, whoso marriage bad
occured on the same evening that
the husband had joined the Grangers.
The bride wasn’t a Granger by any
means, and had always been twit
ting her husband in reference to his
connection with that organization.
-She was anxious to sec the “ show,”
and paid her two bits for that pur
pose. Taking her place before the
covered mirror, she was asked what
animal she wished to see. “ The
goat that my husband rode the night
he joined the Grangers,” was the re
ply, The cloth was removed, and
her curiosity was gratified!
Speedy Justice. — Our citizens
have cause to remember the morn
ing of the 14th of July — only two
weeks ago—when \V. T. C. Klliott
was set upon by four roughs and
roughly handled; also the capture
of the entire gang, after two of them
had been wounded—one by Klliott
and one by Sheriff Kinkhead. The
Grand Jury met, the whole party
were indicted for an assault with
intent to rob. Oil Monday Iasi the
case was called, tried, and a verdict
of guilty found, with a recommenda
tion to the mercy of the I’ourt. A
.sentence of twelve years in the Slate
Prison was passed upon them, and
yesterday they were forwarded to
that institution. This has been quick
work, and if su. U speedy jus
tice was dealt out to all who violate
the law in our midst, our county
would not bo taxed so heavily lor
the trial and conviction of those who
prey upon honest people and make
their living by unlawful means.—
lU'iio Juunutl, 3l«f ult.
Thk execution done by the cloud
burst of Saturday afternoon, says
the Carson Appeal, is tremendous.
The Bigler grade in the neighbor
hood of the Toll-house, is so be
strewn with rocks and other imped
iments, and so torn away and
washed out that It will be several
days before it can be repaired so as
to be passable. The ranches lying
next the mountains have been very
inueh injured, especially Thorne's,
Arthurs’ and Woods’. The fine, fair
Welds lying along the course of the
torrent present a scene of devasta
tion sad to look upon. The wood
tiumes along the line of the foothills
are greatly damaged.
The N ewspapkb Caruikus Toast
ed.—At a military entertainment
given in Virginia a few nights since,
whlcn toasts were flying thick and
fast a solemn-visaged individual,
with a Blight impediment in his
speech, arose and said: “Gentlemen
I pro-pose-The newspa-paper ca
carriers of the Co-Comstock range”
[Auditors look as though a job of
some kind was about being rung in
on them; many of them, doubtless,
remembering that they were a little
in arrears to the carriers]-11 those
d-dear newspaper e-carriers who c
ca-carry ’em in their blessed b-bus
bustles!” All rise, and as they drink,
sing; 11 Shoo'-fly!” in three langua
