HOW IRI> If I la la. \pent and Carrier, Da\t< u aii«> Sutro. FOR OOTKRYOR. We are authorized to announce Hon. C. C. Stevenson, of Storey county, for Governor, subject to the decision of the Republican State Convention, that assembles at Win nemuceA, on Thursday, September 1 24th. Mr. Stevenson is one of the oldest as well as the most favorably known men in the State. lie is not what is known as a political man, although at present occupying the position of State Senator from Storey county. However, he has always taken a lively interest in the welfare ot the State at large, and Is a firm and consistent Republican. He is largely interested in the material welfare ot the state, perhaps more so j than any other candidate for a simi- 1 Jar position: being largely interested in mines ami mills in Storey and Fvon counties, and is at this time, expending largo sums in develop ing mines in this county. In Mr. SU'Vi nson the Republican party have the only formidable contestant of Gov. llradley, who will undoubtedly be the nominee of the Democrats. From all we can hear, we opine that Mr. Stevenson will go into the Con- | vention with a clear majority, and | it nominated, will receive the popu- j lar vote in the Ides of November. A Test.—Owing to the lateness of the hour at which we received the proceedings of the Republican County Central Committee, held at . Dayton, on Saturday evening last, j we were unable to make but bare : mention of the same. One point in particular strikes us at this time as j deserving of more than passing notice—that is the test that should be adopted at the primaries to be liolden on the 16th of September. | We have talked with a number of j Republicans, and their views—gen erally speaking — are ours: There should be a qualifying clause insert ed in the test. We think non-resi dents have not a right to vote at the ■ primaries, no more than at a gen- ( cral election; therefore, none should j be allowed to vote who have not j registered. Again, as it is a Repub lican primary election, why should other than Republicans be allowed , to east their votes? In order to get i a fair expression of the Republican j voters on any question, only Repub licans should Ire allowed to vote. | This would seem the fairest course | to us. In the meantime, our eol- j limns areopen to Republicans todis- j cuss the question, anil we hope to j hear from our readers on the sub- j iect, iu time for Thursday's paper, | as the Central Committee meet again l on Saturday evening, to take tiie matter under consideration. Mine Ventilator.—The largest mine ventilator in the world is a Gnlbal fan, 15 feet diameter, 12 feet face, at the Usworthy colliery, near Newgastle-on-Tyne. This fan runs j about 45 revolutions per minute, and I is said to circulate 200,000 to 2*0,000 j cubic feet of air per minute. It is driven by two first motion engines. 36-inch diameter cylinders, 3 feet stroke. The upcast shaft is 10 feet in diameter, and 600 feet deep. The workings in three seams are venti lated through it. The output of the Usworthy colliery is about 1,506 tons per day. The mines are very exten sive. All the underground haulage is performed by machinery; two of the throe seams are worked on the bord and pillar system; the other is worked on the long-wall plan. On tiif. 20th, at Pioehe, while two men were putting in a blast in a shaft near the Alps mine, the charge prematurely exploded. The hands of one ol the men, who was holding the tamping iron, were severely out anil burned, hut It is thought no bones are broken. The other was also cut slightly about the head, but not otherwise injured. It was a re markable escape for both men, nei ther ot whom were severely hurt. OUR California exchanges say that in all parts of the State the Gran ger* are erecting warehpuses for the purpose of storing their grain. They act like men who are determined to obtain the profits on it* sale at high prices, which greatly offends Mr. Friedlander and causes his agents to put forward all sorts of arguments to prove that prices are sure to be lower than ever before. -— ■ # -■ , Thk Richmond Dispatch is in clined to think that if the country could get a proper President for a third or fourth term it would be better off Hum if can be with the fearful agitations and corruptions of the presidential canvass every four years. An Interesting Decision.—The United States District Court at Louis ville, Kentucky, has rendered a decision of considerable interest to express coin panics and the public. A Louisville bank sent 816,000 by I the Adams Express Company to ] Louisiana. By the falling of a bridge on the Louisville and Nash ville Railroad, Ihe express ear was burned, and the money with it. i The bank thereupon sued the ex-j press company, but the court de cided that the company could not.be | held responsible for accidents on the railroad, and therefore the hank loses the money. Personal.—lion. C. E. DeLong returned from Oakland yesterday morning, whither he was called a ; few days sinee in consequence of the | illness of Mrs. DeLong. Mother j and child getting along finely and j will soon arrive in Virginia City. Senator J. P. Jones arrived at his home, in Gold llill, yesterday j morning, and will remain a few days. Hon. C. C. Stevenson, who has j been to San Francisco tor a week or more, consulting w ith the Directors of the Buckeye and other mines in which he is largely interested, re turned yesterday morning. Rather courageously than other wise, in these perilous days, a cor respondent of the Tribune says: If Mrs. Tilton is to-day a fallen woman, and Mr. Beecher a fallen man—but no one knows them to be thus fallen—the great and sad fact does not at all prove that ministers and women ought, from this time i forward, to be afraid of each other. When fear steps in, trust and love, and all that makes the pastoral rela tion, as it is called, useful and beau tiful, step out. There is a general lament over the invasion of virtuous homes by the prurient llood of Beecher-Tilton gossip. Now that the sexual cat is out of the bag, says the Boston Herald, let parents improve the opportunity to impress useful moral lessons up on the minds of their boys and girls, who must know everything sooner or later, and if their instruc tion comes in a proper way, it will be a thousand-fold better for them than ii they are led to seek it for themselves at poisonous fountains. It is cruel and cowardly, in any man, to speak to the women under ' his own roof in a manner that would j forever disgrace him if heard under any other. And yet Jh>w many do j it, alas! and even go their way after it, selfishly forgetting the tears and 1 tiie bitterness they have caused,and I selfishly expecting, if they remena ber it at all, that on their return the domestic sky will be without a cloud. More the pity when it is! Then, in deed, is there danger in the air—for then too often come deceit and hy pocrisy, and indifference.’* That surprising Detroit Justice remarked to a lighter, the other day: j “ This affair will wrench a ten-dollar bill from you unless you want to go i up for ninety days. lie careful how you sling your fists around after this. John (J. Heenan gained some thing of a reputation by blowing his muscle up, but public opinion lias changed. If you want to be famous j you must discover a comet or hang l around a reservoir and look out for breaks.” ___ Tiie Louisville Courier-Journal believes that Moulton is either a fool or a fraud. It wonders how he could persist in his warm personal , attachment for both Tilton and I Beecher, if he knew that Mr. Beech- i er and Mrs. Tilton were in the habit! of getting such tableaux vivants as ; the bedroom and the ankle scenes j with the knowledge of Tilton. Bullion Shipment.— Since our last report the following bullion shipments have been made, says the Eureka Sentinel of the 22d: The Hoosac Company, 40,140 pounds, by Pritchard’s line to Palisade; the K. K. Company shipped 22,000 pounds yesterday, ami will forward 70,000 pounds to-day to Elko by private teams. _ There are over fourteen ami a half millions of children ot the school age in this country. We spend annually for schools over $95,000,000, and we employ 222,000 teachers. Hon. C. W. Kenpai.i. is expected to arrive in Austin soon. Hon. W. W. Hobart and .State Mineralogist Whitehill have arrived in Austin, says the Reveille. In the District Court, at Carson, the hail of William Tullett, charged with assault to rats-, was reduced to $500, which was given and the pris oner released. Adolph Sutro lectures to-night at Genoa, on Thursday evening at Reno, and Saturday he will talk to the citizens of Unionville. A reward of $'250 is Ottered lor the arrest of Georgo Lambert, who recently escaped from the Pioehe jail. Nineteen' prisoners are in the County Jail of Storey county at present. TELEGRAPHIC. Special to the Tri-Weekly Times fBr Western Union Tkleorai'H Line.] New York. August '23.—A special to the World from Bear Buttes. Dakota, gives the text of General Custer's official report of’the Black Hill survey. He describes the topogra phy of the region at some length. When near Bear Buttes the expenditiou was stopped by a ranj.e of high and impassable bills. The expend it inn attempted to effect a passage, but in every instance were led into deep broken canyons, impassable even to horsemen. They followed Elk Creek stream and discovered a gap in the rocky barrier on the northern boundary, tlirough which the expedition passed. Th«*> then camped for the Just time in the Black Hills region, in delightful pine forests with grass and foliage as in the State of New York. The interior was like«a beauti- j ful park with thousands of acres of pasturage. Behind them were the plains and before them J a dry ami aried waste. They then marched to Bear Buttes. The health of the expedition is excellent. They expect to reach Fort Lincoln on the .ilst day of August. They explored the major portion of the interior of the Black Hills. No portion of the United States can offer richer pasturage, purer water, a more beautiful temperature or advantage to the farmer or stock raiser. Building stone, fuel ami lumber are inexaustiable. Bains are fre quent and grain would yield aboundantly, especially wheat. Gold and iron have been found, also inexhaustible beds of gypsum. A Times* special from Louisville says war j between the whites ami blacks is going on in j Lancaster. Kv., since Wednesday. The whites j have possession of the town. Yesterday the | negroes fortified themselves at the residence j of the Hon. Win. Sellers. United States i troops endeavored to quell the riot, but were fired upon by both parties. The fire was re turned, ami several were wounded on both j sides. The Commercial says the trouble is simply between friends of S llers and Ken- j may. Newark, N, J.. August 23.—At 10 r. m. last night, Miss Teresa Tighe, accompanied by her . mother, oil lo r way hom*. between East New I ark and Kearney, was knocked down by a man named McGrath, who attempted to violate i her. A determined resistance by each preveu I ted him from acoomi dishing his purpose. Ten minutes later a cry was heard further up the road, and on hastening t> the spot, it was found tnat he bad violently assaulted a Mrs. Hitter. She resisted and gavt the ruffian a sound thrashing, and then handed him over to the officer. He was locked up for examination. San Francisco, August -It is understood i that the sal " n-keepeis of Oakland will not shut up. even if the Supreme Court should sustain the Local Option law. They will de pend on the technicalities connected with the election there, and after these are all overruled will continue the light in another way. They think there will be so many cases that the i Courts cannot try one in a hundred, for which j they will make a common fund from which | to pay the fines. Tim match game of billiards played last | night between A. Kraker. champion • the Pa- i cific Coast, himI L. Perkins, at the Mechanics' Pavilion, resulted in a victory lor the latter. There will lm a series of games played. Thomas Burke, who threw pepper into the j eyes of two or three persons on Kearny street, ■ Friday night, one of whom he robbed, was held iu f 10,1)00 bail yesterday. Stockton, August 23.—On Thursday one of the inmates of the Insane Asylum took refuge on top of the water tank, in the court yard of the asylum, where he still remains.

White was found at an early hour i this morning lying <'U Second street, complete- i ly disembowelled by a frightful cut across the ; abdomen, lie was alive when taken to the | Hospital, hut was unable to give the name of j his assailant, before he died. It has been con clusively ascertained that he iutiicted the wound himself with suicidal intent. The reasons for the act are unknown. Greenbacks, 91H(<&91 V The weather is clear and warm. Very little excitement in stock circles. A large party of Kattern visitors, who ar rived last night, visite\ the Fair this after noon and evening. MIDNIGHT DISPATCHES ! Oakland, Cal., August 24.—To-day Thomas Winslow, a carpenter em ployed on the C.C.R.R., was found dead in bod, at the Rrader House. It is supposed that he committed suicide. _ Los Angeles, Aug. 24.—A large number ol men are leaving for the mines at the head of the Santa Clara river. The reports from the oil region are very encouraging. Mendocino, Aug. 24.—There was a shooting affray iiere to-day. Thos. McCann and James McCormick had been drinking together, and while engaged in a game of billiards a dis pute arose between them, when Mc Cann drew a lour-shooter and tired at McCormick, the hall entering his mouth and lodging behind his ear. The wound is not considered fatal. Eureka, Cal., Aug. 24.— Un .Sun day, about 7:30 a. m.. a light shock of earthquake was felt. It was also experienced at l’etrolia and lioice Landing, further south, at the same time. The vibrations were east and west. Stockton, Aug. 24.—Judge Booker | to-day remanded Mrs. McNamee to j tlio custody of Sheriff Cady, who i leit for San Jase. Her counsel ac. | companies her there.

Shasta, Cal., August 24.—All the j ; preparations lor the execution of I Baker and Crouch on Wednesday arc completed. Baker still continues his Braggadocio manner, apparently ' reckless of his fale. San Francisco, August 24.—It is reported that a gontleman, who refuses to give his name, is taking measures for having the llev. Mr. ! Van Be Mark brought before the Commissioners of Lunacy on a charge of insanity. Tho Japan, which arrived from China and Japan to-day, will dis charge her cargo Immediately and reload for Hongkong and Yoko hama. She made the passage in twenty days, and. brought 26,000 packages of tea for’New York. The British hark Achievement, lrom Astoria to Liverpool, put into this port this evening in distress. On the 26th of July she encountered a gale which carried away most of her spars, and disabled the vessel. Three of the crew—James Hughes, Manuel Joseph and John Bean— were washed overboard and drown ed during the gale. She will be re paired hero before going to sea again. The steamer Aneona, hence for Panama, by way of Mexico and Central America, was 35 days mak ing the trip down, including deteu i tions, arriving last Thursday. About the same day the steamer Granada left for San Francisco. Sail Accident at Dayton. • [COMMUNICATED.] On the p.Kb instant, little Arthur O. Bellin ger. son of I’hil** and Sarah Bollinger, aged two years and nine month*. while playing in the front yard, fell into n small barr-1, partly sunk in the ground and full of water, and was drowned. The child had not been absent from its mother ten minutes when she missed him. and running to the barrel, she found the little fellow with his head downward in the water Dr. Ilazlett was summoned and was there in a few minutes, and, with the assist ance of the neighbors, did everything neces sary to resuscitate the child—but it was of xi<i avail, as the boy was dead when found. He was a promising and lovely child. The parents are almost heartbroken; they have the sympathy of the community in this sad affliction of theirs, which was plainly shewn by the kindlb ss and attention bestowed, by so many, and by one of the largest funerals ever seen in Dayton. Sweet, little darling, the pet of all the town, This night you are wearing an immortal en mu •. While parents and kind friends are mourning in grief, Christ has stretched forth his hand to give you relief. * Suffer little children to come unto me,” Were the words ^ our Savior to all such as thee; Relying on his promise, we will mourn no •more— When death comes to us all. we'll meet on that shore. Though the body of Arthur is under the sod, 'Tis sweet to reflect he has gone to his Ood. Dayton, August 21, 1874. Secretary of State.—The Reveille announ ces C. D. Spires, of Austin, as a candidate for Secretary of State, subject to the pleasure of j the Democratic State Convention. It is re- 1 , freshing to liear such names us Mr. Spires mentioned for a State office of so much im portance. No party need be ashamed of such a man. He should receive the nomination, simply because lie is just the man for the pos ition. Unfortunately for Mr Spires and those enjoying the elective franchise, however, the Democratic state Conventions in this State are not particularly famous for nominating good I men, when they can be had.—Belmont Courier. ♦ ■ ■ - Repairing Damages.—Every person whose i place of business was iujured by the late flood , is now busily engagad iu repairing damages. There is no crying over spilt milk, but every. | body is going ahead with a will to obliterate j the traces of the disaster.
