The Carson “Tribune" is evi dently afflicted with the “blue devils,” hypochondria, or some other kindred disease, caused cither by disappointed affection, unsatisfied appetite for position or plunder, or by youthful indiscre tion. If not, why this morbid depression of spirits, this evil prophesying, these gloomy pictures of the future, this general disgust with the American people in gen eral, and the Goddess of Liberty in particular? Hear it: “ We venture to assert that not a town in the United States would celebrate the Fourth of J uly, did not the business men of that town expect to make something by it. England used to be called by Napoleon I. a nation of shopkeep ers. We may with justness be classed as a nation of hucksters. Patriotism is a dead letter, and the “ almighty dollar” is the sole aim and object of all. We are drifting towards a moneyed oligarchy, and whenever the last sign of patriotic feeling is rooted up, as it surely will be if the worship of mammon continues, then will the shoddy title worshippers demand an aria- j tocratic and perhaps imperial j government.” This is the conclusion of a dis mal whine, because the good peo ple of Carson took no notice of the centennial anniversary of the Bat tle of Lexiugtcui, and “theglorious old farmers who drove the entering wedge into the tree of usurpation one hundred years ago.” It says “it is afar greater day than St. Patrick’s Day, or Fourth of July.” Yet it was not celebrated in Carson. Well, suppose it was not. what then ? Does the simple fact give you the stomachache so bad that you can only see patriotism lying dead at your feet; that you can see j nothing but a desire for greed in the annual celebration of Indepen dence Day—and around you, “ a nation of hucksters, drifting tow- i ards a moneyed oligarchy?” How out of place are these gloomy, ! blue-and-black predictions, in this ! age of progression, this age of patriotism and loyalty to the land, from the Atlantic to the Pacific— from the Gulf of Mexico to Puget Hound. This age where science, wealth and patriotism combined, are freely tendered to the country whenever and by whatever avenue its existence is threatened. In this age when the American people are larger hearted, more public spirit ed, and more patriotic than ever before. Did our people take time from their business pursuits to celebrate every great event in their history, the entire year would become a national fete; for our his tory is a list of proud deeds of brave people from the beginning. W e are hardly disposed to attrib ute the expressions of the “ Trib une” to any settled conviction of its venerable editor. We are loth to think that he has “lost his grip” on, or faith in American institu tions and the American people. A kindly feeling towards the afflicted and a reverence for age, bid us attribute this wail from the pool of Despondency, to sour stomach, indigestion, or a temporary sub mersion in the Lethean waters of forgetfulness. Come, neighbor, cheer up! “ The devil isn’t half so black as lie’s painted,” or the ' ’American people” half so unpat triotic as your moody musings have led you to believe. A WORD TO I’11.4111 IVIN. ■Some of our cotemporaries, who should use "better judgment in giving advice to our pilgrim pros pectors, take oacasion to speak very disparagingly of the agricul tural portions of Nevada, and say they can settle up these districts, “ but they will find the chief pro duction sage - brush and jack rabbits, either of which may be produced in abundance without irrigation.” Wo don't wish to intimate that the moro favored regions, in which these sage (brush) editors thrive, are productive of jackasses as well as jack-rabbits, but one would be led to that con clusion from the braying against I everything outside of their wealthy and would-be aristocratic little j world. Why, the agricultural sec tions which some of these pilgrims have left behind present a thousand difficulties to one in way of profit ■ able cultivation, found in tlie I farming districts of Nevada. : Think of those old farmers in Cen I tral New York, Massachusetts, and i Vermont, spending their lives in picking up bowlders and grubbing out stumps? There isn't three old farmers in either of those States | but would get jerked over their i horses' heads once an hour when I plowing among the roots and : stones. Four-fifths of the pilgrims i farmers now coming among us have every other rib broken in j tlieir many encounters with the agricultural implements of the | East, and look upon an old-fash ioned plow as a common enemy to mankind. Did you ever watch the pious old farmer of the East, jogging along in the furrow behind his cattle or horses, singing in his j metliodist simplicity, " This is the* way I long have sought," i And notice the diversity of his remarks as of a sudden the oft j plow handle takes him a whack in the ribs, his heels fly up, and be i finds himself a-straddle of the plow-beam, ready to be kicked to ; death by a four hundred dollar span of horses? Does he get up and praise the Lord, and “ Mourn because he found it not." Not much! He has just found it! ' and gets off the ragged edges of that “ dinged plow,” forgets he is a church member, ties the lines around his waist, runs up to that “ nigh boss” and kicks him in the abdomen until he promises not to “ do that again.” Then he goes to the water jug, puts it up on the corner of his elbow and cools his passion—but if you can “ strike him" just at this moment, you can buy his farm for four bits an acre. The agricultural lands of Nevada are easily tilled, productive of bountiful crops when properly cul tivated, and with the same amount of patient labor that is expended by Eastern farmers, can be made to pay a good income to those who pre-empt and till them. Farm products, and the stock which can be raised on our grazing lands, bring good prices in our home markets, and there is quick and cheap transportation for any sur plus. This is all you can expect I from any new agricultural country, and those who come among us to engage in farming or stock-raising need be in nowise discouraged by the gratuitous information furnish ed by the metropolitan press. AA'e ake under obligations to our old friend Judge Hayden, of Salt Lake City, for a copy of Judge Boreman’s charge to the Grand Jury in Ins district, on their assem bling at the recent Court term in Salt Lake. The document is one of the most fearless, able and sen sible that we remember to have ever read from the pen a Utah Judge. It is too lengthy for pub lication in our columns, and so voluminous that a brief synopsis would not do it the justice it merits. The “ Enterprise” and “Chron icle” have commenced a new wran gle, and if we are to judge by the epithets they hurl at each other every day, they are not likely to sleep together very soon. We have just found out how “ dignified journalism” is defined by high steppers in the newspaper world. Oub Spark Change.—From the official count of the State funds, [ made on the 10th, it appears that I our State treasury contains §336, j 476 88 in coin and coin vouchers; j §44,040 08 in currency and cur- j : rency vouchers, and §364,500 in Nevada State and United States | bonds—-in all §745,016 06. __ lx is said President Grant, his i cabinet, Gov. Titden and staff, and some forty archbishops, will attend the ceremony of Imposing tlie be retta upon Cardinal McCloskv, on Tuesday next. Elizabeth, N. Y., had a $100,000 . fire yesterday—cloth lactories. Extreme cold weather is reported at Chicago. Louisiana State Auditor Clinton I has been impeached for malfeasance ! in olUce. --- ' Beecher was on the witness ' stand again yesterday. The same old thing. The Baltimore & Ohio and Pennsyl vania railroads are at war, growing out of pro rata passengers rates. I Special to the Tri-Weekly Times |Bt Western Union Teleor-ieh Line.] Salt Lake, April 20th.—A con struction train went Last from Ogden last night, but has not yet reached Echo Station. A washout is reported between Weber and Echo, in Weber canyon. No train from Green River has succeeded in getting West as far as Evanston, on account of a washout at Leroy. The situation at present is serious. There is a washout on Bitter Greek, 190 miles east of Ogden, and a bad washout at Leroy, 112 miles east of Ogden, where the wires are down, and another about 30 miles east of Ogden. The difficulty in making repairs is on account of no trains passing over the road, no train having run from Ogden to Green River for six days. The wires will probably be in working order by 2 o’clock this afternoon. ban Francisco, April 20.—T. R. bcowden, Chief Engineer of the water supply of ban Francisco, began last September a series of | surveys and reconnoisances with a view of determing the best source of supply for the city. He exam ined the capabilities of Clear Lake, Blue Lakes, Calaveras Valley Lake, Merced, bpring Valley and Pesea dero. and last evening presented to I the Board of Supervisors a volum inous and exhaustive roport, in : which the comparative efficiency j and cost of the various plans are < discussed at length, and in conclu ! sion he recommends the adoption ! of the Calaveras Valley project, which will supply a city of one million inhabitants with one hun dred gallons of water per day per capita, at the estimated cost of not quite 811,000,000. The report was received and placed on file. Calistoga, April 20.—Three new daily stage lines commenced run ning to-day via the new town of Kellogg to Middleton, Harbin Springs, and the Great Western mine. The telegraph will be com pleted on the same route in a week. Spring brings joy to the heart of a Wyoming editor, who sings : “Soon the dusky squaw will bo seen straining maple sugar through her winter stockings.” NEW TO-DAY. PIPERS OPERA HOUSE.
