TTi.srtT of Prosperity.—Then is an old adage which, quoted, says “Toot your own Lorn if you don' sell a fish.” The Times will hard!; lx accused of adopting the motto it its own, or, in otlipr.wordsf.canuo be charged with indulging in ani great amount of self-adulatien We do not claim in every issue tf have the “largest circulation of am paper in the State,” or that “it is the best'advertising medium in the West.” To us these assumption. of journalistic superiority appeal extremely silly, even if warranted by the facts, and a great deal more so when not so warranted. Since the first issue of the Times, we have eudeavored to make it an acceptable News-paper, as well as a worthy me dium through which business men could reach the attention of the pub lic. To what degree we have thus far succeeded, we leave a generous community to judge, at the same time acknowledging the liberal support and generous appreciation vf our people, both in kind words and that more than equal testimony of dollars and dimes which has been onr main stay in the enter prise of publishing a paper in Lyon county. When we say that the support received has been fully up to our expectations, we only make a candid and honest admission of the facts. Since the establishment of the Times, we have been able, through the support received, to add largely to the at first scanty material of the office, both in presses and material, until we now have a most complete and valuable job ami newspaper omee. Uur fa cilities for the execution of all kinds of ordinary, plain and ornamental printing are not surpassed in this part of the State, and it gratifies us to be able to state that The Times is receiving a good share of this class of work. By late arrivals from the typo founderies of Chi cago and San Francisco and the stationers of those cities, we now have the latest and handsomest styles of job type, paper, cards, bill heads, letter-heads, marking tags, envelojues. visiting cards, legal blanks, display cards, and every thing in this line that can be wanted by the public. There is no one connected or employed in any de partment of the paper but is a thor ough printer, which enables us to do the very best class of work, and at prices which cannot but satisfy any one who is willing “to live and let live.” We respectfully so licit the inspection of our material and prices. The Times as an ad vertising medium, is a valuable means of communicating with con sumers. Its circulation is large and constantly increasing, and there are but few bouses in Lyon and Storey counties at which a copy is not left. We intend im proving the paj>er in every way, and'promise both subscribers and advertisers that it shall constantly grow in size and worth. Did we desire we could publish column after column of very flattering no tices extended by our cotempora ries, but we do not feel at liberty to trespass upon our limited space by the publication of compliments. We simply solicit a continuance of your patronage, and promise in re turn to givw you value received. It is whispered in the society cir cles of Carson that Prof. D. K. Ses sions, of tho State University will Shortly take the hymenisl degree of Benedick. It is rumored that his sessions of Courtship with the pink efieekede peach-lipped daughters of the Capita) city are long and inter esting. It is presumed that the young Professor is brushing up iiis anatomical studies with a view ol getting up a tew extra Sessions (of the University) at no distant day. A ngi, song by an old nt^ro woman'Hi Alabama, ran thns: "I hssr a ramblin' In d* skies, jews, screws, de fl duin. I beer s rumblin’ In de skies, /Mrs, screws, de ft dum.” An Inquiry elicited the fact that the second and fourth Unas, which form a Sort of ohorua, originally lead: . "Jews erasOsd him!” , A Hacfiilic for Saving «£ri<k 1 silver. On tlie 25th day of Iasi May 1 < rt»r patoiii, were ia»m d from the olihwi a Wn*Mngt"H lo John tV. Varney an Jolia R. Hereford, of this city, foi an invciitiiVli to sn\e tbequieksilvci contained in the tailings from thi , mills. It is well known that foi every ton of rock crushed two oi • three pounds of quicksilver are lost During the amalgamation and tin j grinding process in the amalgama ting pans considerable quantities o! ■ quicksilver become lloured, and the globules get coated with a black greasy substance, which causes them : to float on the top of the water ii: [ the lorru el' a black scum. Thh scum, bearing with it the globules of quicksilver, flows off with the dis. i charged tailings and is lost. It lias also Ikoii ascertained that il this s<-uni l>e rubbed gently between twiV surfaces', the greasy covering is removed, the globules of quicksilver gravitate, their affinity for each Oth er is restored, and they unite in one common mass. This is the Opera tion intended to be performed by the machine. But this invention does not rely for its value upon theory alone. It lias been practically tried during tlie last eight months at the Occidental mill, and found to answer admirably tlie purpose for which it was con structed. It is not saying too much tor it to say that it will save, when attached to an ordinary twenty stamp mill, ?S00 per month in quick silver. The machine consists of a circular pan, with a central cone cast on the apex of a cone rising above the top ot the skies of the pan, and having a journal for a shaft. The shall, is supported at the lower end by an os cillating step, which is held in .place by a lover, one end ot which is pivoted, and tlie other raised or lowered by a screw and hand-w heel. The driver is keyed upon the top end of the shaft, and turns a conical muller. The exterior surface of the muller contains little dove-tailed slots, which are made lo receive shoes ot rubber, wood, leather, or other material. These are arranged on the inside surface of the conical muller, as closely together as possi ble, and give the tailings room lo run between them. The exterior cone of the pan is lined with copper, against which the shoes on the iu side of the conical muller i ub. The operation of the machine is as follows: The tailings run in and down between the copper lining of tlie cone and the inside of the conical muller. In the bottom of the pan is a body of quicksilver extending, above ibe lower edge of the muller. The muller being iu motion around the cone, the tailings, during their fall, are rubbed between the shoes and the copper lining of the cone, thereby removing the greasy coating Irom the floured quicksilver and al lowing it to unite with other parti cles so that when tlie tailings are forcing their way through the quick ' silver at the bottom of the pan these ! particles will join the main body and be retained. The tailings go on through and aro discharged from an ! opening made for the purpose.—Vu- ; terjin'se.

Mul ealiy, Jaiuoe Dully. —Car.^fn %'ri buni. A Home Company.—There is con. siderable talk in this place of start ing a joint-stock smelling company. That such a company is needed, there cannot be the least doubt. Should an enterprise of this kind be inaugurated here, we leel confident it would prove a success. Outsiders have been telling the people here what they intended to do for the past three years, but have failed to connect on every proposition they have advanced, and we have waited for them quite long enough. There is an abundanoe of money here to start smelting woiks, and plenty of ore, an(J all that seems to be needed is for aopne of our. enterprising men 'to make a start ifi'fhis direction If tnis company is not started, our citizens may rest assured that ttiqy will witness duller times than they have yet seen in Hamilton.
