Special totho Tri-Weekly Time*. fBv Tum Umov TlMdiurH I.lSE-1 New York, Aug. IT.—A Paris oor resjxmdeut says that the Archbishop of Paris has given rise to another diplomatic difficulty, owing to a pas toral letter which was read to a few of the faithful in the Cathedral, and then posted upon the wall fora short tinifs As the journals dare not pub lish it, the sole idea of its tenor may lie formed from facts. First, it was written immediately after M. Gin hertz' return from Home, where he had several interviews with the 1 Pope. Second, Marshal MacMahon went directly to Finigra's house ami made an apology for the letter, say ing a note on the subject would ap i pear in the official journal next , morning. The pastoral letter con tained things offensive to Italy and to Victor Emanuel. San Francisoo, Aug. 17.—It is now supposed that it was a Chinaman who beat young Milzner so terribly a few days since, and then robbed Ins father's store.

On her trip from Saueelito the steamer Petaluma took fire near her boiler. The lianies were soon extin- j guished. Damage about $(!00. Carson, Aug. 17, 1874. — In the District Court,' to-day, Judge C. N. Harris, the sentence of death was passed on John Murphy, who shot and killed John McCalluin in the latter part of May last, in this city. Murphy received his sentence with out a sign of trembling or change of color. As late a day as possible will tie named for tlie execution, in order to give his counsel an opportunity to bring the matter lietore the Supreme Court for a new trial. The Virginia & Truckee Railroad Company have made arrangements with the Central Pacific Railroad Company for a sleeping ear, to run : between Carson and Sail Francisco, leaving hereon Mondays and Thurs days, and San Francisco on Sundays i and Wednesdays. James Crawford,'of Lyon county, has been appointed as Superintend ent of the Carson Mint vice Hetrick. San Francisco, Aug. 17.— Coroner Rice certifies that John West, who I was found dead on Commercial street last Saturday, died from .hydro thorax. In the ease of Julia Campbell, found dead in bed at the Racine ( House on Saturday last, the Coroner certifies that she died hv means of poison. Judge Biake to-day sustained de murrer to the innictment for perjury against John Peters, and ordered that the ease be again submitted to the present grand jury; the indictment setting fortli that while the grand jury were examining charges of mal feasance in office against the Chief of Police and members of the po lice department, San Froucisco, the defendant was examined. When asked w hether he received #200 from Woodruff, in consideration of the lat ter retaining his position on the force, Peters answered in the nega tive. He stated that he never re ceived anything from anyone for that purpose. This statement, it is alleged, is false, and perjury com mitted. A new deed was filed this evening which is supplementary to a deed of Lick, giving the Academy of Sciences a*id the California Pioneers cortain property. Tile corporations are made party of the third part by tile last deed, in order that their interests shall be more binding. A Geological Freak.—In the bottom of the main shaft of the Virginia City Coal (Company ! El Dorado Canyon, Lyon County, has been en I countered the trunk of a tree four feet in di- ! ameter, a lone relic of an ancient and extinct ' forest. Where cut through by the shaft, says ! the Bnterprise, this old tree is found to be per- ' fectly carbonized—turned into coal. Outside [ the log in completely crusted over with iron ' pyrites, many of which are so bright that the crystals shine like diamonds. These pyrites | also extend into the body of the log, filling | what were apparently once cracks or wind- ! shakes, and even forming clusters about what ! was once the heart of the tree. This relic of ; an old'timc forest lies far below the two veins of coal the company are about to open. The finding of this old trunk is evidence that the country was at some time, age* and ages ago, covered by a forest of large trees ; though the native timber growth, when the country was first visited by the whr.es, and as far back as the traditions of the Indians extend, was but a scrubby species of uut-niue. A few miles from -the shaft in which this carbonized tree was found are to be seen ou the surface the petrified remains of many large trees. In the early days of Washoe, before the prospectors had broken them up for specimens, pieces of tree-trunks two or three feet in diameter and twenty or thirty feet in length were to be seen lying upon the surface uf the ground. How ever, these trees, and even the one lound in the bottom of the shaft of the coal mine, may have come from the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains—may have drifted out when seas of water everywhere covered our | present valleys. The water lines visible on the hills show that the whole country was filled with lakes, and the petrified trees lying here and there on the ground probably floated out on the waters of the extinct lakes'and fin ally sunk to the bottom in the places where they are now found. f I Ml on THE CAPITAL! Carson, August 16, 1“T4. Epitor Times Not anything of moment has transpired in this quiet town for the past three weeks, if I might except the semi-judicial trial j of the present .Melter and Refiner of the United States Mint. It appears that Andrews, the late Melter and Refiner, preferred charges against his successor, which were of such a serious character (none other than that of stealing), that the Secretary of the Treasury I delegated a Treasury agent, now j here, Professor Schiermer, ot the Denver mint, to investigate these j allegations of fraud. The examination was had before Judge Hillyer, of the United states Supremo Court, and resulted in a complete failure of Andrews to sub stantiate his charges. The whole matter seems to have been originated by recently discharged employes, ; circulating malicious reports ot peculation, using Andrews as their eats-paw. Upon the conclusion of the examination, the Professor de cided that no fraud existed, nor was : even attempted, and that the present I Melter and Refiner’s department ! was as honestly and well conducted as any in the United States. We learn, to-day, of the resigna tion of Superintendent Hetrick, of the Mint, and the appointment of Jim Crawford, of Dayton, your neighbor, a clever man and deserv ing. As Senator Jones was at Clev eland yesterday, and will arrive here in a day or two, we shall leafn as to the truthfulness or otherwise of the report. Politics are boiling somewhat, and there is the usual pulling and haul ing for the lucrative positions. ! With the exception of the writer, j all citizens I meet with seem w illing i to serve their dear country. Sharon is expected from the lake tiiis evening, when probably some things will be lively. His chances ; are certainly stronger here than arc those of any otiier |ierson as yet named. He has probably the ablest workers enlisted in his favor that can be found anywhere, and my impressions are, they will carry the 1 county for him by a handsome j majority. Yours, Cypo. _ . _ Personal.—Wo were pleased to j meet Mr. John I. Ginn, of the Jn/le pendrnt, who accompanies Mr. Sutro t on his lecturing tour of the State.
