VOL. 3. SILVER CITY, NEVADA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, 1875. NO. 18, A MAKYEL. The window up at the houso looks out upon a marvel. True, 'tis only a little tree; and not a fruit tree at that, for it never bears anything but leaves and blossoms and beauty. It has been dressing itself up of late, and now stands all feathered with green and taasel *ed with red, and looking as bravely as a maiden in full rig, and somebody coming np the street. Yet, it's a marvel; and there, in open daylight, and in view of everybody. Nature has been engag ed in a transformation scene, with ao music but that of the mountain winds and no one looking on save the sun bv day aud the moon and stars by night. And yet, from naked brownness to plumy green has the transformation been, and perfumed censers are hung and swing from every branch. A little while ago it was tinted with the frosts, aud in the morning tipped witli jewels which exhaled os the sun looke 1 through them. Yet. e\ery morning, ere anybody was a!> ■ it, the sn:i hung in those liquid drops s;f 1; it. t ie very tints in • iic>.u l and rc l reproduced to-day by blossom and leaf. But u mighty finger was on the pulse of that little tree then, and that was why it stood so brown and bare. When that finger was lifted that pulse throbbed with new life, and the russet wrappings could no 1 >tiger hold their wealth, and leaf and blossoms unfolded amid the breat dngs of the breeze and the kisses of the sunbeams. How silent 1, an., like cliilden we sit amid the mysteries of Nature, and liow vainly we search for that unspeakable word which, while never on mortal bps. called chaos into shape and awaken* life through all the world. So we can only sit and marvel at that little tree, and wonder what force raised the levers, thrilled through it* little stem, and fashioned its leaves after such delicate jiaiteru, aud tinted its buds, and poured such fragrance in each ruddy enp— but, above all, at the doings of that underground laboratory, at the power of selec tion in those minute spongioles which draw balm and beunty from the 'bluok mold around, at. the forco which scuds it up and along both body aud branches, and changes it to cell and tissue, aud seta the glowing red iu fringes of j green, an.l absorbs aud reflects the light in sneh exquisite contrast— that power which poises the turn ing world, yet carves the blade of grass, the delicate flower or tie forest leaf, and from the springs of life scuds the quickened tide through Nature's veins.—[Terri torial Enterprise. Qivk rr Publicity.—The latest receipt for the cure of drunkenness is one which is now going the rounds of the press. It came into notoriety, as is mated, through the efforts of Jno Vine Hall, command er of the steamship Great Kastcrn. He had fallen into such habitual drunkenness that his most earnes and |«rwi»tcnl etforts to reclaim himself proved unavailing. At length he sought the advice ot an eminent physician, who gave him a proscription, which he followed fai fctuUy tor several month*, and at | ttie end ol that time had last all desir • for liquor, although he had for many years been led captive, winch lie afterwards published, and by which so many drunkards have be.-it assisted to rel >rm, as follows: ‘•.sulphate of iron, five grains; mag nesia, ten grains; peppermint w*;er, eleven drachma; spirit of nutmeg, one drachm; twice a day." This preparation acts as a stimulant and tonic, ^nd partially supplies the place ot the acou-ioiued liquor, and prevents that absolute physical and moral prostration that iollows a sudden breaking from the use of stimulating drinks. If it is* as eftt oacious as it is claimed, there is uo reason why drunkards as well an other mortals should uot be happy yet. A Li visa Raft.—The leaves of the gigantic water lily known as the Victoria Regia, in the Botanic Garden at Ghent, having attained a remarkably large sise, Mr. Vaa Halle, the chief gardener, recently undertook to determine their buoy ant power. One leaf easily sup ported a child, and did not sink under a man. Mr. Van Hnlle then heaped bricks over its entire area and found that before the leaf ba «ame submerged a weight of 761 pounds was floated. A Secret of the War Office.— I have a case in print as to the man ner in which Lincoln was frequently imposed upon. Of course the citizens of Louisville recollect that* when Shqrman was in command of that de partment, he was accused of insanity. He could not receive any answers from (ten. McClellan to his dispatch es. Mrs. Sherman came to Washing ton and called upon the I*resident. She statod that for more than twelve years she had been Gen. Sherman’s wife, aud, if any one was capable of judging ns to the soundness of hi* mind, it would be herself. She de rlared that there had never been the slightest indicationof insanity,though they might drive him to it; that, if he was insane she would be the first to withdraw him from the public gaze, but so far from desiring that, she asked that he might Ik- entrusted to anything that was difficult, or that * was becoming his rank. Mr. Lincoln's [reply to this was that “Gen. Slur man's dispatches were not those of a sane man.” Mrs. Sherman was ns t ini shed. After leaving the President, she went to the War Department, and requested a copy of her husband's dispatches. After obtaining these, she again called upon the Presi l at; when Mr. Lin In read th s papers, he said they were not at all what th v ha<l lieen represented to Dim. Hiis was the kind of work that w .s e done in the War Department, wher we needed every good otli.aT; el, by the light of to-day we can s h w few there were as valuable s Sher man; and yet the country would have lost his servi > if his wife had not been the brave determined w man that she is. Mr. Chase took a bold stand at that time in saving Sherman, anil I heard Gen. Sherman, at his daughter's wedding, say the most graceful and felicitous thiugs to Mrs. Sprague personally, and iu allusion t > her father, knowing that kind recollections of him would be the -w H'test tbeino for his daughter's ears. A Pekiloce Advestoie. — Ou Friday last au incident occurred on the Cliff House beach which resulted in the loss of a valuable horse, and almost in the loss of human life. A few days previous. Mr. Edwards, druggist ou Jackson and Kearny stfeets. purchased a horse, which he placed in the hands of a trainer. Ou Friday the horse attached to a buggy contain ing the trainer, another man and a lad was driven through the park on to the beach. The novelty of the roaring surf so frightened the horse that he dashed at once into the breakers heedless of the tight ened rein, and drawing the buggy and its human freight with him. The traiuer, perceiving that the horse was unmanageable, seized the lad. and bidding the other man swim ashore, sprang out and with much difficulty succeeded iu reach ing the beach, whore he had been preceded by his older companion. The horse and buggy were not seen afterwards, and the trio, after disrobing and drying their clothes on the beach, sought the city, deeply impressed with their for tunate escape from death.—[S. F. Chronicle. The Shall of Persia once ordered his Vizier to make ont a list of all the fools in his dominion. He did •o, and put his majesty’s name at the head of them. The Shah ask ed why. to which he immediately answered: “ Because you entrusted a lac of rupees to men you don t know, to buy horses for you a thousand miles off, and who’ll uever come back.” “Ah, but suppose they should come back ?’’ “Then I shall erase your name aud iusert theirs. The Oriuin op the Hoche-fly. Flies came in this way: When God made the bees, the Devil al ways wanting to imitate the Al mighty in all his works, thought he could make bees, too, and tried | it, but failed—his bees all turned ont to be flies. We have the word of the Shooster, and he hail it from hia grandmother in Germany So that it seems to be pretty well substantiated. An European exchange says there are 1*00 eon vent* and monasteriee, inhabited by 21,000 nun*and rnouks, i In Belgium. Tti* income of the > religious order* m that kingdom is one hundred million* of dollars. Germany is poor, and German finan cier* would like to get hold of the money on tho ground thsl Belgians i are true Germans, end dishonestly 1 usurped soch n pile hf money. 0. H. r.KLKNAP. C. E.
