TELEGRAPHIC. Special to the Tri-Weekly Times. [By Westebs limes Tf.lehrafh Iuxe.) San Francisco, July 81.—It is re ported on reliable authority that the Chinese Government will soon es tablish a Consulate in this city, and that the six Chinese companies will dotray the expenses of the establish ment for the benefit of the Home Government. It is thought an American will lie appointed Consul, with a Chinese Vice Consul to aid him. The Chinese Commissioner, who went East recently to make ar rangements with Eastern colleges for the reception of fifty Chinese students, is clothed with authority to make arrangements for establish ing a Consulate. Twenty-one persons were com mitted to the Insane Asylum from this city during the present month. The jury in the case of Mrs. Fagan, tried for the forgery of checks on Wells, Fargo A Co., failed to agree and were discharged to night. This will probably end the prosecution of the woman.

CORRENPOXDEXCE. Virginia, Jnly 31, 1374. Editor Times Noticing considerable cor respondence in the Times from other sections of the State, and presuming you would like to hear from the Comstock, I drop you a few lines. As this is the last of the montlu and stocks being down, times are eomewbaUfull; but as politics are beginning to make a stir, I doubt not it will be quite lively for the next two or three mouths. Candidates for the various offices are beginning to inquire after your health, as well as that of your family. The chief topic of conversation on the street to-day is the proceedings of the Social Club, held last night in Turn Hall. This Club seems to be. at present, a sort of Mutual Admiration Society, as you are solicited to join, and no questions asked. At the meeting last night the President stated that any one could join who wished t<-; that there was no initiation fee, no dues ; that the hall cost #26 per night, and that all excess of proceeds would l»e taken in charge by the Treasurer. Query—Where is this excess <*f proceeds to come from? After the literary (?) exercises were over, a sumptuous lunch was set out in the back room, to which all were invited, and in two minutes aft. r the command waa given, not even a aodawat*T bottle was left ! Ano ther query might arise—Who pays for these lunches? Report says that a certain candi date for United States Senate foots the bill. Report also savstliat this same candidate has offered the Club a loan (?) of #7,500 if they will obtain a membership of 200, and agree to vote his ticket at the coming election. That is at the rate of about #35 each. Cheap enough? Since the formation of this club, the people are beginning to wake up, and are inquiring if they are to be bought and sold like cattle. The President stated last night that the object of the club was not for polit ical purposes yet, but might be before long. Hut enough of this. I will look out for them, and keep you posted. Another thing which is disgusting the people is tin- large number of roughs and sports now lit re, who make no secret of their mission, and openly de-lare their intention to rule the primaries, and that they are here in the interest of a c ertain candidate. We tell ; these ge ntlemen if they undertake that little I game, tin y will find it a warmer primary | ela tion than they anticipated when tlmy left j ban Francisco. Almost every day T hear people regret that there se ems to be no opposition to Shar-n. Gentlemen, It is early yet. Wait till tin cur tain raises and the fun commences, and if you do nut get your money's worth, then I aru mis taken. There will be opposition, and a more t -rmidable one than Sir Sharon d* sir s t > sc . Mr. I).-Long has rnt« red this light, to win, and he will win. He is buck d by the people, and needs no ?7,r>o0 social clubs, no importation vf San Fran isco roughs and sports, to help him. He has no retinue of mill and mine superintendents to do service f. r him. Almost every man in Storey county, whose interests an- n->t identical with the grand monopoly tl-it. overshadows the Com stock. will vote f r tie strongc.-t man t • beat King William, and public opinion is fast tend ing to th. belief that Charley DeLong will yet prove the victor. As I have already made this letter longer than I intended, I will close with the promise of Mure Anon. Carson City, July 31,1874. Mr. Editor: — This lovely town has been much exercised during the present week over certain removals, made by the Superintend ent of the Mint. Many of the good people think an outrage has been committed, by this act of the Superintendent. Upon making ap plication of the proper authority. I find these foi and recom mended by the Tr< asurv Agents, sent out from Washing! < -u to investigate matters. The Chief Clerk was not considered competent for the position he held, being too old f"gy, and la- k ; ing in business qualifications, tie reby causing I delay and hindrance in Mint affairs. I The Clerk was charged w ith ma j ligning the character of one of the executive officers; w hile the third person discharged was guilty of insubordination. This seems to be a- nearly correct an explanation of the whole matter as I can obtain.

OOlre, \o. «2 South « si, Virginia. (up stairs.) PARTICULAR ATTENTION PAID TO Medical and Operative Surgery. Mid witery, and the diseases of Wonwu and chil dren. — NPEC 1A1.TIEM: Nasal Catarrh, in all its varied and worst forms. Throat and Lung Troubles, ty>n sumptiou. Nervous Affections, Small pox. Diseases of the Eye and Ear, Scarlet l’ever. Measles, Fevers of all kinds, Diseases of the Digestive and Frin ary Organs, and chronic troubles which have RESISTED ALL OTHER TREATMENT. In all the above classes of Disease, Dr. Chahe Uas met with Fnpaballeled Success, assuring Speedy Relief and Radical Cube. HOMEOPATHY now stands vindicated through years of rigid and critical experience as the most successful of all theories in modern medical practice. It is the only sys tem of medicine truly based upon the laws of nature. HOMEOPATHY’ cures all curable diseases permanently, and those disease which have baffled the powers and resisted the akill of the best practitioners of the old medical sys tem for years, arc forced to yield to the gentle yet firm and sure influence of Homeopathy. HOMEOPATHY aims to eradicate disease entirely; to cure sure and easy, without bleeding, blistering, cauterizing or drugging ; to prolong life and lessen the number of sick days. SURGERY’—It is one of the greatest tri umphs of Homeopathy to dispense with the operation of amputation and excision in more than two-thirds of the cases, by the radical cure of the diseased parts, which the old system of practice would have consigned to the knife. Fractures and serious wounds are healed in less time and with less pain than under any other method of treatment, aud the greatest triumphs in modern surgery have been aud are achieved by the surgeons of the Homeopathic school. QUALIFICATIONS.—Db. CNasb is a gradu ate of the Medical College of Detroit, Mich igan, and holds also diplomas from two other medical colleges. He prac tices the most ap proved styles of treatment kuowm in this country, ami in the medical schools of Berlin, > leuna ami Loudon. His very extensive and successful experience in medicine and surgery warrants him in offering his services to the afflicted of this section with the utmost con fidence of being able to give perfect satisfac tion. PROFESSIONAL ETIQUETTE.—Db. Chasb standing in an attitude of friendly regard and strict medical etiquette toward his brethren ot tin* medical profession, never stoops to speak ill of the fraternity, but standing upon the sound bottom of his own merits and abil ities. leaves the afflicted to Judge for them selves and choose w'hether they will atmly to him or not for cure. ADVEKTISING.—Db. Chase believes in advertising, and not In that very doubtful de gree of modesty or policy adopted by many of our most meritorious medical men, which induces them to carefully •• hide their light under a bushel,” waiting for their good qual ities to be discovered. It is an injustice both to the really talented physician, and to the afflicted in vital need or the very services las is so well able to render, and which the ad vertised knowledge thereof would bring to them relief. Honest and honorable represent ations in this way are legitimate and just, and are so recognized by all sensible men of the present age of progress. Dr. Chase simply tells the afflicted what he can do, and proves his truthfulness by doing it. Some of the veriest quacks and fossilized humbugs in the regular medical profession carefully conceal their actual incapacity be hind an assumed professional dignity. They actually feab to advertise, through an innate knowledge of their own Inherent incaDacitr and culpable venality.
