IS RAD HEALTH.
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
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
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

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.”
