One Sum ner, who, while a member of the State Legislature, proved a loss of over $50,000 to the treasury, spoke at Dayton a few evenings since and vented his spleen against the Times, in fact, devoted the most of his harangue of an hour or more, to us. As we were unrepresented at that immense Independent-Hybrid gath ering, we cannot give the speech in full. In the Independent of yester day morning, we find it partly re ported by himself, lie being the paid slushslinger of Mr. Sutro. This Confederate Colenel is a very nice duck to talk about the “ sub sidized press,” he himself being imported as a hireling, a tool of the great bore. It would be well for gentlemen (?) of his kind to con sider the position they themselves occupy, by so doing they may avoid the jeers of the populace. Ir the Opposition and Inde pendent press lay any claim to truth and honesty in their charges against the Republican party, they will be forced to invent some new line of attack, and abandon the story of extravagance in the Gov ernment expenditures. The matter of economy is one of the chief aims ot the Administra tion, snd every intelligent man in the country will acknowledge very great success in that direction. Retrenchment and economy are the watchword and the policy, and will be as long as there is room for a dollar's reduction in the cost of Governmen; without detriment to the public interests. There will be services at the School House on Sunday evening. Bev. Olmsted officiating. •• Republican ” «<» the Front. Silver City, Oct. 30,1874. Mb. Editor:—On the 28th instant a paid whiffet, who has no “ visible means of support,” bad a communi cation published in the independent ; j it was simply a very weak tissue of I falsehoods, and the “piece” or its | “ author ” were scarcely worthy of the castigation given them the ! next day, by an editorial in the Times. In that communication he “ requested a small space, for the purpose of giving a short history of the independent movement in this county.” Now, a history of tho independent movement in I.yon coun ty was just what the great, -majority ot tho people of the county would like to road. But, the five or six Sore-head manipulators of the move ment did not want, the thing made I public, and as soon as whiffet had j written his first paragraph they | stopped him, and ho “switched oil ” (and changed tho subject to the I “subsidized press." Here whiffet’s 'natural truth-tolling (?) proclivities crop out again: when ho says that the “ paper was to be an independ ent, no-party sheet.” At the time the paper was started the independ ent party had no being, and its pros pectus announced that the Times would be an “advocate of tho Re publican party and principles uot that it would endeavor to infuse life into the afterwards-prepared corpse of a Sore-head-hybrid independent democratic party. The “ leading citizens” of Lyon county did not expect or want it, and if whiffet and the class to which ho belongs did, mey nave ut'ii grievously uisap pointed. Now, a word about our Kepublicau Primaries. Whiffet says “everybody knows how that Repub lican (Sharon) slate was made up for our (?) primaries; how all our best and most honorable (?) citizens were carefully left out in the cold.” What does the record show? The straight Republican ticket in Silver City received an average of 162, I while 4.I10 other side averaged 96; leaving a majority of 66. In Dayton the vote stood 129 to 81, a majority of 48 for the Republican ticket, and this is what whiffet would call a put up job. The “ best and most hon orable citizens whom this majority carefully left out in the cold,” I will take up and consider in my next communication. In the Independent of to-day whiffet has again spread himself. He tells us not anything new; that “ Mr. Win. R. King is the Sharon candidate for State Senator, and that he is Superintendent of the Eureka Mill and receives a salary of five hundred dollars per month.” Mr. King is the Republican candi date for the State Senate, and, as is the case with nine-tenths of the true j Republicans throughout the State, he is in favor of tile election of Wil liam Sharon to the United States Senate. He has worked himself up from a laborer to the position he now holds; he may receive five hun urea dollars per month—and, it lie does, lie is worth it to the Company | that employ him, or they would not ' pay it. He is honest and capable, and will represent Lyon county in : the State Senate with lion r to him self and to the satisfaction of his constituency. Above all, lie is a gentleman—far removed above at tacks emanating from such a source. Whiffet says ‘- Mr. Dovey is a resi dent of Silver City, -devoted to Sharon,’ ‘ a youth unknown to fame,’ ’* etc. If whiffet had lived in Lyon county a few years instead of a few months, he would have known that Mr. W. C. Dovey was a mom her of the Assembly from this county four years ago, and that his course during the session of 1871 met with the universal approbation of' liis constituents; in fact, lie made one of the best members we have ever elected in Lyon county. He will be re-electod on next Tuesday, and his most simple word and least act will be remembered when | whiffet’s whole life history will have been forgotten. Mr. L. Morrill of I Dayton is an honest, straightforward j business man. If ho made some money in the legitimate business of selling ice, which is the more hon orable; that, or the illegitimate call ing of whiffet’s? Mr. Hugh Carling of Fort Churchill lias resided on a | larin, with the exception of the time : he gave to his education, since boy 1 hood. He is a young man, of good I steady habits, married, and respected i by liis friends and neighbors. He will not gainsay tho title of hoodlum if applied to whiffet, anil will not go behind a nom de plume to decide it. More Anon, Republican. Silver Hill has levied an assess ment of $LOO. TII El It TRI E POSITION. The whole tone of the Independ ent movement Is Democratic, and shows that the tendency of the few Sore-heads who left the Republican party to form a new party is to affil iate with the Democracy. The resolutions in their platform, with tiie exception of the first one, are so thoroughly Democratic in their tone, that Slim Tom Williams finds no trouble in adopting them. Not a word of praise for the many good things the Republican party iias done; not a single allusion to its brilliant past and honorable present; not a line against Demo cratic misrule in those Slates where it holds power; not a sentence refer ring to or protesting against the fearful outrages in tiie South; not a word of encouragement or hopt :o the loyal citizens who to-day look to the Government for help; not a sug gestion in regard to tho necessity of protecting American citizens; and all these vital omissions in tiie plat form of a party that claims to bo liberal in its policy, reformatory in its character, and patriotic in its purposes. The sooner these Inde pendents openly identify themselves witii the Democracy the better. The few honest Republicans who left our party to join them, can no j longer lie deceived by their clamor for reform. Their actions justify | our early convictions that tiie party, j from its inception, has been an ally i of Democracy, and was, iu its form ation, a blind to draw from the Re publican ranks sufficient strength to place the atlairs of tiie Government in Democratic hands. the move ment will fail, thanks to a patriotic people, who have detected the deception, and refuse to be a party to the betrayal of the Republic. The tight this fall is the same old fight, Democracy on the one hand, Republican on the other. Tito stake is a valuable one—the possession of the State Government and of the House of Representatives. The Republican party is so closely allied to the life of the nation, that wo have as strong a conviction in the success of the one as wo have in the perpetuity of the other. I.et its friends work earnestly, and our full victory will send a thrill of joy throughout the land. It seems to worry “ Independent” muchly that the Times prospers, and is likely to do so for all time, notwithstanding his threats that the business men of Silver City would discontinue their patronage as soon as their contracts expired. We are confident if he withdrew his ex tensive patronage from any office it would collapse in a tortuight, hence we trust he will reconsider and not withdraw his patronage from the Times. Ilis patronage! There is, not a restaurant in Slippery Gulch or Gold Cation but know him to their sorrow. We think ho had better travel. untiAi intcicai >u oi'vziimg ■ circles over tlie $3,580 trotting race to cotne ofi' to day at the Bay District Fair Grounds, San Francisco, be tween Occident and Fullerton.

Many outside bets are made and if tlie weather is pleasant there will be an immense attendance at the grounds. ———1► Once Moke.—In tho face of the most positive proofs, that irrespon sible scribbler of the Independent, insists that the Times was started as an Independent paper. The respon- ; sible patrons of tlie paper know this to bo a prevarication of immense proportions; siuiplv this, and noth ing more. Democrats Speaking.—Tlie peo ple of Dayton are having their (ill of political speaking. Fast evening A. C. Kilis and J. R. Kittrell talked old-fashioned democracy for an hour or so each. A large delegation went down from this place — that same spring wagon, with the addition of one Sore-head, making six in all. There is to be a mass meeting of tho Republicans at Virginia City this evening, at which Hon. C. E. DoLoug, Dr. J. C. Ilazlett, William Woodburn, Esq., Colonel J. C. Za briskie, and Robert H. Clark, Esq., will sjieak. It will be a monster, see if it don’t. Will Return.—It is expected that Theodore Vinson, will return to Silver City to-morrow morning, bringing with him his partner for 1 life. They will receive a hearty 1 welcome. Catholic Service.—Rev.
