When rambling o’er the mountain top
I Row a pretty flower.
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.

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.
