Death of David L. Hasting*. On the meeting of the Republican State Convention at Winnemueca last Thursday, the death of David L. Hastings, one of the delegates from Lyon county, was announced by Jonas Seely, Esq., with appropriate remarks, after which the following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, David L. Hastings of Lyon county, a delegate to this Con vention, on yesterday, at this place, in the zenith of his useful life, while engaged in the discharge of his po litical duty, without warning, but, as we firmly believe, duly prepared, became a victim to the iron tooth of time, and has gone to the other world, carrying with him, as we devoutly trust, credentials securing to him membership in that grand conven tion of just and true spirits over which the Supremo Ruler of the Univese specially presides. Resolved, By the Union Republi can State Convention of Nevada, duly assembled at Winnemueca on this 24th day ot September, 1874: First—That in the death of Mr. Hastings tills Convention has lost a wise counselor, the Republican party a leading member and our common wealth one of its chief citizens. Second—That while bowing, rev erently and humbly, to thisatliicting dispensation of the Almighty will, in deep sorrow we publish to the State this great loss, promising for ourselves that we will cherish his memory, defend his good name and imitate his many public and private virtues. Third—That we will cause these resolutions to be published with the proceedings of this Convention. True Economy.—Economy is one of the prime virtues of communities as well as of individuals. !u all de partments of life, whether in govern ments, corporations or the private citizen, the tirst step towards pros perity is an economical and careful disposition of accumulated funds. The prosperous and successful man, he whose prosperity endures, is the matt that judiciously preserves the money already earned. He who wastes his substance in riotous living and he who imperils his whole for tune in speculative ventures, are nearly sure to reach the same goal, bankruptcy. The desire to derive large returns for our money, to make it yield more than legitimate trade and sound investment warrant, is i attended with so many uncertainties and such large probabilities of ani mate ruin, that not only are fortunes lost, and suffering and destitution entailed, but the abnormal condition of the mind, the restlessnes and fe verishness of the body, begotten by its turbulent voyage on tho sea of speculation, generally disqualify the occasional successful speculator tor the enjoyment of fortunes won by such ventures. That then, which yields a fair return and which offers the security and for these causes re lieves the mind from the harassing troubles and vexations attendant upon all speculations, should always be sought for as bringing the only gains much to be desired.—Coast Review. About 100 overland passengers have published a card, setting forth au account ol the treatment they re ceived on tho Central I’acitic train, at and near Iteno, from bands of robbers and three-card monte sharps. They say their train was literally captured by these desperadoes this side of Kouo; that they went through the cars cursing and striking the passengers, brandishing knives and revolvers and threatening to cut them in pieces or blow their brains "ut. They add, that all these and the conductor ride in tho same car with them. The New Orleans Picayune re cently contained the following no tice: o The boy who came into this office yesterday, sat down on a box, and then bounced up with a veil end tied like one bewitched, is re quested to return four long brass tacks that were standing on the box "hen lie took his seat. No questions "ill be asked—we understand it all; but xve want those tacks; we have use for them. The box is specially devoted to exchange fiends, and the tscks are what we depend on for ex citement.” A MlLI.ION-Dor.LAR Moktoage.— rite San Francisco Bulletin of the i'th inst. has this item: The largest mortgage ever placed on record in ;his city was recorded to-day. It is tteeuted by William Sharon and "’• C. Ralston, in favor of the Hibernia Savings and Loan Society, s security for J l,000,000. at 7 per per annum for three years, the property mortgaged is known s the Palace Hotel property, having frontage of 27b feet on Market beet, by a depth of 344 feet. The meumeut is drawn upon one of the 1,1,111 blanks of the >bank, with an ’terlinage that the mortgagors “fee to pay tp mortgagees a propor °n of any solvent debt tax. The ause providing that the buildings Ju"t be kept insured by the inert a&ors for security of the mortgages 1 erased. xavso\s powr.it ntxxi:u. The following concerning Man son's atmospheric power liammor and drill, is from Coggin’s official catalogue of the Mechanics’ Fair: Manson's atmospheric power hum mer, William Manson, exhibitorand patentee, manufactured by Manson A Co., Downieville, Sierra county, Cal. This invention, which was patented June 23, 1874, consists of a working cylinder directly above the anvil-block, in which works a piston and piston rod connected directly with tlie hammer. The working cylinder is of long stroke and small diameter, and is connected with the condensing cylinder by open ports at each end. The condensing cylin der is of large diameter and short stroke, and its piston is operated by a crank driven by a belt and pulley. The air is condensed alternately above and below the condensing piston, operating upon tlie working piston iti the same manner above ami below alternately. The length and force ot the blow is regulated dv’ a srop-cocK Detween tne two cylinders, and is operated by a hand-lever, and can at pleasure strike any desired length of blow from one-eighth of an inch to three feet. He has also in connection with the same condensing cylinder, small portable hammers, connecting with three inch rubber hose of any re quired length, which can he easily carried about (weighing less than twenty pounds) and applied to chip ping and calking, riveting, stone cutting, rock drilling, etc. The principal advantages over all other hammers are the following: Econ omy of power, durability, cheapness of construction, and facility of ap plication. A company is now being organized in this city for the extensive manu facture and sale of the above. Even upon the specifications ami drawings before the machine was built, it ealled forth tiie universal approval of the leading mechanics of San Francisco. Their opiniou has now been fully endorsed and supported by the prac tical working as seen in the Me chanics’ Fair. Before concluding this notice we should not be doing justice to the inventor, the industries of our State or mechanical interests generally, did we fail as publishers to give our endorsement of its merits as claimed by the inventor, Mr. Mansou, whose inventive talent has supplied not alone to t’aiifornia blit to the world a want which has long been felt and commented upon in scientific journals. We tender our congratulations not only to the in ventor, but to the San Francisco Mechanics’ Fair of 1874, which* will be able to boast that it has given the public generally the first opportunity of witnessing the admirable and perfect working of a machine which is destined to take rank among the most useful inventions of the age.— Downieville (Val.) Messenger. The Business of Journalism.— In commenting upon the failure of J. Y. Scammou, of Chicago, as a newspaper manager, MeCullogh, of the St. Louis Globe, one ot the most successful Journalists of the West, tells a plain truth in the following words: The business of journalism will continue to be an inviting field lor experiment to those who have a large amount of egotism. A man who, having edited a newspaper un til lie was forty, should suddenly announce himself a lawyer, would be regarded as a fool by the legal profession: and yet, we often hear of lawyers of forty making sudden pre tenses to journalism. There is an idea that the business of editing re quires no apprenticeship; that edi tors come forth from tlie law offioos and colleges fully armed-for the profession, like Pallas from the brow of Jove. It is a mistake; there is not in America to-day a single journalist of national reputation who lias not devoted more time and hard work to his profession than, with equal fitness ami application, would have made hiui a great law yer or a good doctor. And yet ninety out of every hundred men you meet on the Streets will hesitate about carrying a hod or making a pair of shoes, whereas there will probably not lie one in the hundred who cannot, in his own judgment, edit any newspaper in the country better than it is edited, no matter in what manner or by whom. Mail advices by China steamer, at Sat» Fran cisco, report that many tracts of land at Isen eurla have been laid waste by a volcano in tha^ district, vomiting tire, cinders, and smoke high in the air. One hundred and eighty houses have been burned by the falling sand. There was a continuous discharge of ashes for ten days. An extraordinary phenomenon has oc curred in connection, it is generally supposed, with fhr volcanic disturbance. From a plain in the volcanic region there arose, in a brief time, three mountains, one of which covered an area of two and a half square miles and is 1,800 feet high, and others being considerable smaller. A tract of land also arose from the ocean at an adjacent point on the coaRt. The newly-risen land measures 1,808 feet by 500 feet, and is connected at one end with the main land. Most kinds ol roots and barks are now used as medicines except the cube root and the bark of a dog. Do your host hopefully, and trust ingly leave the rest with God. LOUIS GOLDSTONE.
