Catholic Services.—Wo have authority for announcing that there will be Mass held at the Catholic Chapel at 10 o’clock this morning. The overland wires were down east ol Salt Lake last night, cutting off communication with Brooklyn. Happy respite. There will be no religious services at the school house to day, the Kev. Mr. Jenvey being detained at .Vir ginia. The development of the Silver Hill is progressing very iavorably. The north drift liss been considerably ex teuded and ttie main shaft materially deepened since our last notice. Mu A. B. Jackson, assistant su perintendent of the Sutro Tunnel, lias resigned his position, and John Bluett lias been reinstated as lore man. The St. John’s Day party, given by Amity Lodge No. 4, on Thursday evening, was a very select and j pleasant affair, and passed off very successfully, indeed. Dr. Kirby lias received a dis rpatch giving information of a pow der explosion in the Jas. Duffy A (Co. copper mine at Mason Valley. 'Two men wore injured. Mrs. C. A. Chapin, of Silver City, -yesterday morning returned homo! from an extended visit to San Fran cisco and the Sandwich Islands, at which latter place she has a sister resi ding. Quite a trip. According to an exchange: How a woman can keep on talking while she is twisting up her back hair and lias her mouth full of bair-pitis, is a mystery not yot explained. As a general thing wo are averse to publishing “ original poetry,” but we have admitted “The Mountain Flower,” sent us by Maud, simply to show that all of the talent in the world does not take up its residence iu the Literary Maga zine. _ The new machinery for the Niag ara mine has been placed in position, the track laid in the mine, the ore cars built, and everything put in shape for a vigorous development.

Which bloomed ax fair nud beautiful Aa in a ladv’x bower. I stooped to pluck ft! but a tliorn Then pierced my Augers through, Ami Hpitefully It xeemed to . I'll guard my treaaure true. But xHll I Raid, "You're mine, sweet flower!' And quickly quelled my wrath, lor the flower Raid, “I'm lovely still,” Though thorns surround my path. I skillfully removed the thorns From off the slender stem. And bore it carefully away— I doubly prized it then. For It taught me to be kind and good, And patieut all the while; And greet the weary traveler Forever with a smile. Maud. Stiver City. June 23, 1x75 Nor Guilty.—A quite interesting suit lor assault transpired before Judge J. Porter Gould, at Armory Hall, on Friday afternoon. The trouble grew out ot a disputed pos session of the extension of the now famous Amazon mine. Two par ties claim the discovery, one of which is represented by John Dona hoe and the other by Victor Laun dry. It appears by the testimony tiiat Laundry was working in the shaft on Thursday, and while thus employed was ordered by Donahoe to desist. Laundry declined, and was pushed away from the mine by Donalioe, but not struck or hurt. He thereupon had Donahoe arrested. The State of Nevada was ably repre sented by Major E. 15. Stonehili, of Virginia, and “Tom” Harkins, Esq., of Gold Hill. The defendant em ployed no counsel, leaving the mat ter for the jury to decide. We have seldom seen a case of so little im portance conducted with such digni ty and formality by the Court, and sueli profound efforts by the counsel lor tlie stale. Counsellor Harkins opener! the ease and principally con ducted the examinations, and Major Stonehill made an aljle and lengthy appeal to the jury for conviction. One of the jurymen, like the fore man of tile Heecher jury, was dis posed to make light of the solemni ties of the occasion, and was taken to task by the Major. Til ore who have read the seoritieation administered to the Heecher juryman by tiio dis tinguished Heacli, can gain some faint idea of the Major's remarks under the same head. The Court also tried to impress upon the mind of tile defendant that it was not an occasion for levity, and with all the majesty of the law beaming forth upon his ragged countenance, com manded Hie defendant to “assume a becoming gravity in the presence <>t the Court. Nero lidd ed while Koine burned, sir! and Judas smiled ar bo betrayed his fjord, sir! blit you, sir, are not to take example by these un feeling barbarians. You sil there, sir, on the gloomy eve of disgrace, sir, and.tho eyes i f this Court and the State aro upon you. Don't let this Court see you smile again, sir! Proceed with the case, Tom.” There being no evidence of an intention to assault, the jury promptly brought in a verdict ol not guilty. Affairs at tiik Mint.—Affairs at the Carson Mint, during the an nual clean-up now in progress, are in a very satisfactory condition. We understand that the result of the clean-up will exceed that of any pre vious year, and that the amount of wastage will come within the figures prescribed by the Treasury Depart ment—a result not achieved last year, and one demonstrating the efficiency and honesty of the Mint officials. For tlie past year 4,000,000 ounces of silver have been treated, against 2, 200,000 last year, and 215,000 ounces of gold against 177,000 ouuces last year. For several days past the As sayer has been engaged in making approximate assays of the Consoli dated Virginia bullion received as instalments on the $1,509,000 pur chase. $250,000 of til is lot will be coined into dimes and 20-cent pieces at Carson and the remainder worked up at the Philadelphia mint. Dr. Lindermau, Director of Mints, will be at Carson this week, and we are informed will inaugurate a new iin. provement which will enlarge the present capacity ot the mint at least 50 per cent. Coining will commence again on the 2d or 3d of July. Whkugh!—Not far from our of fice lives a model husband aud the father of a nice little flock ot child ren. lie never wearys of provid ing the littlo ones something to play with. While coming home from the Vivian mine the other day he found a nest of young skunks, and, of course, brought oue home lor the children. About ten minutes after the children got hold of it and com mence to squeeze it, the folks in the house commenced to smell some thing like the balm of a thousand flowers. When 8. brought that skunk home he didn't think it wa>j ripe, but when he opens the cellar door now to see if the children are smelling any better, he kuows that it was. If there is anything in tbit world that isn't fit for children tc play with, it is the gable end ol » skunk. Mrs. Partington in the Shade. lie caine into the office just boiling over with rage, and as ho look a seat opposite our table, and run his long fingers through his tangled locks flic perspiration stood out on his forehead like liquid cannon balls. “Compose yourself, sir, said we; “compose yourself, and for the Lord's sake, tell us what's the mat ter.” Mopping his face with his nose-rag, and looking at us sorrow fully, he said: “You see, sir, the old woman has 'plied for a divorce, but that’s not wiiat makes me mad.’’ “The d-1 and Tom Walker!” said we, syinpatlnzingly. “Yes, she's ’plied; but (getting se rious) I don’t mind about that. I don’t care about the divorce, but (looking solemnly at us) you see, sir, she wants to get antimony out ot me, sir—she wants to get antimony out of me!” And lie rushed out of the office to see his lawyer. The Pioneers' Picnic yesterday was unquestionably the most suc cessful affair of the kind in point of numbers, pleasantness of weather, and in every necessary contribution to pleasure, that lias ever occurred within the history of the State. No onu can even approximately estimate tile number in attendance, but an idea may be had by the fact that not less than 3,000 people were on the excursion train which passed Carson —and this is but a part of the mul titude. Every available vehicle in Carson, Dayton, Silver City, Gold Iliil and Virginia was brought into requsition for the occasion. We are without time or space this morning to give so elaborate a report as we desire, and therefore attempt no de tails. The gathering on tlie grounds was of the most orderly character; no wrangling or lighting occurred to mar the pleasures ol the day, and we saw none whose countenance indi cated anything but the mostagrecabiu state of mind. The conduct of the programme mapped mu reflects great credit upon the Pioneers, and the day is one that will be long remeiii bered by them an I their many friends. “The Lower Levee"—The chaste denizens of this virtuous retreat had another hatch of trouble on Thurs day. The circumstances, as related to us, are substantially the following: A herder for a butchering tirm in ijold Hill, laid complaint that lie stopped at the house to got a cigar and drink, and while doing so his lior e was untied and taken to the stable of the institution. On making a demand for it, lie was refused. An officer interviewed the panics and was told tlie herder had traded toe horse lor a cow, which didn't scum to tally with the complaint. A fur ther demand for tlie horse with a threat of legal proceedings resulted In tlie delivery of the subject ot dis pute to the herder, who departed a happier if not wiser man. .00 much Jersey lightning was at the bottom ot the a Hair. - t Cold Comfort.—That inu insider able number of our citizens (and a small boy with only one linger could have counted their noses) who did not attend the Pioneers’ pic-nic, took up a shady position on the sidewalk, an 1 with longing eyes watched tho long train ot pleasure seekers as it whirred along tlie grade in sight of town, on its way to tlie pic-nic grounds. Those who could not get away from business, and the old four time losers who hadn’t iho “sugar" for a ticket, said it would be a fearful unpleasant trip on ac count ot tlie dust, SUII and crowd, and they were _lad enough to stay at home, t he long train of tlat ears with its gaily dressed and happy living freight was a sight well calcu lated to tempt one away from busi ness and ar>use all tlie envy m de prived human nature. Ouu little Si'ver City boys Imvc found something to play with which beats Giant powder caps all “Hol ler.’1 rhey take an old coal oil can, plug it up tight, and put it on their bon-tlro. Then they all set around and wait for it to explode. There was considerable oil in the one they had Friday, and when the little boy came down the other hoy who had a chunk out out ot his lip by the tin, thought he was dead, hut he was only stunned, and will he out and at it again in a day or two. Theatre at Armory Hall.—A dispatch from Carson yesterday, authorizes us to announce that the MeGInlev Sisters will give a theatri cal performance at Armory Hall, Sil ver City, on to morrow (Monday) evening. The press comment very favorably on the entertainments giv en by the troupe, and they will no doubt draw a good house here. Give the girls a chance. The Riov. Mr. Catlis, who ha.> for some time been seriously ill with heart disease, is now again up anti around town. For several days his lite was despaired of, hut Dr. Fetter man bas brought him around al right. A flooi) Old Fashioned Dinner. —One of our esteemed Benedick friends whose business compel led bis absence from the Pioneer pic nic, and whose front and rear name wo shall call Superintendent G\ D. McDullie, for short, gave an old fashioned dinner to a small party of his gentleman friends yesterday m the absenee of Mrs. McD., who with friends enjoyed the day at Bowers Mansion and the festivities gotten up hv the ‘-Old Boys'' of the Pacific coast. However much the presence of that good lady may have been, and of course was, missed at the ; table, the affair concocted and put I into execution by the lord of the manor lacked nothing of being a success. Every guest was an “old pioneer," when it comes to ; good dinners, and not one i of them could go back I far enough in his record to remem j her when another such a dinnor had ! been served as the one that had been I spread belore them by the good j judgment of the host and the deftly i applied manipulations of “ Miss | Maggie," the queen of the kitchen. Chicken pot-pie, lamb with mint sauce, pork and beatiR, and such vegetable soup, and such coffee, and such claret, and such salad—urn, num! Well, we won’t tantalize you poor folks—who spread your cold grub on the grass, and got down on all fours, with cramps in your shins and feet asleep to get a mouthful— by further enumeration, hut it was a superb dinner, and whenever, after this, “Mac" stays at homo from the picnic, we shall plant ourselves un der his banner. The boys in the mill wore not forgotten, either, and a close observer might have noticed a hall-barrel of eool lager, and some tine cigars within reach. Wo have chalk marked the 2Gth day of June, 1875, in our treasure book among the list of very pleasant memories. The Amazon loot-wall was reached on Thursday The ore body and vein matter is fifty live feet wide,and the walls are as perteet and solid as cut stone. A drift will shortly be run along the vein westward, and another to connect the iuntiol on the Glasgow ground for ventillation. The hoisting machinery is already ordered from San Krancisco, and it is intended to put the shaft down an other hundred feet as soon as possi ble. The stock set aside as a work ing capital is now converted into cash and will lie suliieient tor six months’development. The Amazon bonanza looks exceedingly favorable. hr is said that Powning, ot the llouo Journal, and Miss Cl a la Poor, his betrothed, are having a scrap book made to contain all (Impress I notices received by them before marriage. After that happy event they will ress without n uiee. GRAND CLEARING OUT SALE! .AT. BANNER BROTHERS For Thirty Days ! In order to make room for a Large Stock of Spring and Summer CLOTHING!
