TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 18«. Tbe Spanls.' government has made an ad ▼auee in tbe right direction. It has decided to release all political prisoners. The Maiquis of Lome sailed Iront Quebec for England on the 5th iust. It is not thought tbe Marquis will return to America, as a pleasanter position awaita him in Eugland. And i ow it transpires that Sergeant Mason ii really imsane and is under medical surveil lance. There cau be no question about his insanity. No samt man would have missed Guiteau as Mason did. It is intimated that District Attorney Cork hill »ill be displaced. If the whispered charges against biu>, that lie is too much un der (he lontrol of the Star route ring be true, his removal from cilice cannot be eüected too soon. It ir now stated as a fact that Cbauucey 1. F.lhy »'ill succeed James as Postmaster-Gen eral. It is claimed that Mr. Filley is well qualified by experience and ability to dis charge acceptably tbe duties of the position. He is a Stalwart. T1 e Nihilists now threaten to prevent the coronation of the Czar uuiass he grants cer tain .-pacific concessions to the people. It is said they dog his footsteps with the persist ency of sleuth bouuds aud keep him in a con stant slate of inquietude. U is hintsd that England will sell Gibral tar to Spain. This cau hardly be true. Gib raltar is the key to the Mediterranean and England has parted with too much blood and treasure in acquiring it to ever yield willingly its possessions to another. The Cincinnati Enquirer satirically says: "We ..re glad to see it staled that Presid-ul Arthur will -make some pointed reeom eud alions in hi* annual message with respi-ct lo polvcamy iu Utah.' We leared the Presi dent might overlook a liuie-honored cus tom." The Montana Netoi fulfills the promise of its editors and proprie ois made in ils first issue. An intelligent, reliable evening news pa or of pronounced Republican proclivities has Ion: been needed in this community, and we are 1 d to believe that this want will be accepta >ly filled by the lively, stalwart News. A few negro volets in Mississippi have resorted to the s'.Ot gun as a factor in carry 1 ig the e ection in that S'ate. If their shot guns held out they may have possibly influ enced the vole sufficiently to cut down the democratic majority in a lew places. In some counties, 1 owever, the negroes worked lor aud voted the Democratic ticket. Toe rchool iund of Texas will at no distant day be enormous. Shs has yet unsold 40, 000,0.10 acres of school laul, which will probably bring to 1er school fund $100, 000.0 0, a sum equal to the combined school funds o all the o her States of the Union. Tha U.dvsrsity of Texas lias more than $500, 000 wi.h which to eiect buildings and a per manent endowment of betw -»n $2,000,000 and $.',000,000. At no distant day Texas will take the first rank in the sisterhood of States in educst onal facilities. The San Framisco Examiner says that after all it appears that Snpei intendant Dodge of the mint at that city must go. His ree.g natiou will be iu order at the end of the year, a id may be expected about that time. Al though tbe report of llie investigating com mit ee favored him, Congressman Page is to have his way. Dodge gets the sheds, hut Page secures the oyster. It is understood th it Senator Miller is a party to the change, and. for his active assistanee in procuring it, ii to have the naming of the new Superin tendent, who, however, is lo be agreeable to the Stalwart section of the party. It may be predicted with considerable certainty that President Arthur's tenure of office will in the neat I unite witness considerable changes among Federal office-holders on this coast, and that when they are all made it will he found that one of the strongest political ma chines lias been created that any State can ho ist < f. It will not le an antl-Stalwart nta c tine. Toe Stalwart broom is hitting all around. The move to divide Dakota and admit its southern half as a State is said to be on the republican programme for Congressional work during the ensuing session. The ob jest, is ftankly stated. It is simply to gain two more republican United Stales Senators. The Davis and Mahotte collars which the ref publican members are now forced to wear are becoming Intolerable and in casting about for means to free themselves from the nuisance, they propose to introduce two mere Senators in the manner mentioned. There can be no question concerning Dakota's right to Statehood. At the last census it had 134, 502 inhabitants which are more than Colora do, Nevada or Oregon had at the date of their admission as States. No objection should he urged against admitting it as a whole hut a very decided oppos lion will he developed against, dividing it ami admiriu. oue-halt as aState while the other haP is left as a ter i tory. That oppoeiti-n will be fiimd among the pe pi- I f the northern portion who object to being cut off from their neighbors and com pelled to (truggle along in a Territorial ca pacity, for an indefinite period of time. lie sides there will be found opposing forces to the measure in Congress itself who cannot see the propriety of admitting part of a Ter ritory as a "State whi le other territories are demanding admission. Utah has a larger population than Dakota and asks for Statehood. Montana, New Mexico and Ari xon* believe they can mauage their own af a nd desire to be admitted. Unless a political balance fan be effected by the ad mission as a State of one of tbe Territories named, it is extrelmely problematical whether Bakou will be a4de<* to tbe list of Sûtes at the ensuing session. IMPORTANT RULINGS In the October number of Copp's Land Owner appears tbe decision of the Commis sioner of the Department of the Interior in the matter of the refusal of Mr. R. H. Mason, late Surveyor General of this Territory, to approve the survey of the Monarch of the North mining claim. Mr. George B. Foote was the attorney for the claimants, aud in his appeal cited eight points of objection to Mr. Mason's ruling. In his rulings the Commis sioner says : First, the invent of the Mining Act is obviously that the position of the vein shall be determined or assumed throughout its whole extent, ami that the Surveyor-Gen et al lias the power or authority to pre-suppose the point of departure of the veiu from the bouitdaiies of the location when llie same is not shown by actual development. Though the law provides the width of a claim shall not exceed three hundred feet ou each side of tlie middle of the veiu at tbe surface, it depends upon the local regulation, State or Territorial law whether surface ground to this extent can he taken. It is also held by tlie Commissioner that in the absence of ex ploration and development, the discovery shaft must, for executive purposes, be as sumed as the centre o> the lode or veiu, and that it is the duty of the Surveyor-General to refuse to appreve auy survey until the course of the vein is actually determined or else ad mitted by the claimants to lie iu some stated and probable direction. Second, the form of a survey may take any shape provided it is made within the lines of the location, with two parallel end lines or vertical planes established to define, govern amt control Ute direction and ex'ent to which the vein can be fol lowed and worked on its dip, and is in other respects in accordance with law and regula tion. But the end lines, or the end lines produced, mu t intersect the lode at or with in the extremities thereof as located; it is not enough that the distance between the end lines shall not exceed fifteen hundred feet. Third: An end line may make a right an gle, or any other angle, with the general di rection of the vein. It is the claimant's privilege to assume his end lines to he tit any direction whatever: the law simply requires them to he parallel. The extremities of the lode shall be fixed and hounded by the end lines, and not by a side line. The law gives a locator the exclusive right of possession and enjoyment of all veins throughout tlicir entire depth, tbe top or apex of which lies within his surtace lines, and provides for the prosecution of the vein beyond the side lines indefinitely, limited only by tbe vertical planes drawn downward thiough the parallel end lilies of tlie l< cation. The Suryeyor General can require an amendment of a sur vey w litre such survey embraces an excess of the lode not included in the location, and may also point out how such amendment might be made, but lie cannot exact obedi ence to his suggestions when a satisfactory one in lieu thereof is offered by the claim ant, which he prefers. Fourth ; the Suivcyor-General has no ju risdiction wlialevet In the matter cf conflicts; lie lias only to survey claims in accordance with the law and regulations, and within or according to the limits located. If a claim ant complies with the provision of the Statute with regard to making the claim upon the grouuil and recording it tlie Surveyor-Getter al should not decline to issue an order for an otlica! survey. The Commissioner sees no reason why an applicant should not he granted an order for a sur vey upon a new application, without an» showing whatever, save that he has a claim, provid'd lie pays for it. Lastly, al though the law provides that au official sur vey must he made by or under tbo direction of the Surveyor General, it docs not give him th ■ right in the event of an erroneous sur vey , to otdar an amendment or a re survey without first consulting the wishes of the ap plicants for the survey. In case of error by a deputy the Surveyor-General should require him at his own expense to correct it. Ou his appeal from the rulings of Mr. Mason, Mr. Foote was sustained in alibis i oints of ob jec ions save one. Quite recently the treasurer of the Land League, at Paris, telegraphed to New York inquiring if VVettdeii Phillips would go to Ireland aud advocate "no rent" during Ute continuance of the existing tm rgency, the League offering to pay all expenses. In an ew r the old man said : "Ireland to-day leads the van in the struggle for right, justice and freedom. Let Ireland only persevere in her sublime patience, keeping ever within the limits of peaceful agitation, end her vic tory is certain. With an unbroken front let her assault despotism in its central point. Bent, honest rent, is the surplus left after the tenant lias lived in comfort—material, intel le -mat, personal and social cornfor . Ireland owes none today, certaiuly not to the class whose government is a prison and bayonet. How cheerfully would I do m> part, how gladly •vottl I I share in the honor of such a struggle, hut the state of my health obliges me to give up public speaking. lean only bid ><>u God speed, aid pray for your speedy aud campiete success." It is staled that the parties who have been buying Confederate bonds acted under tlie advice of Judah P. Benjamin. Another statement is to the effect that Benjamin has been drawing the interest on tbe bonds all along and paying It over to Jeff Davit and other impoverished leaders of the lost cause. Others again declare there are do funds In the Bank of England to the credit of the Con federacy, and that the purchase of Coufeder ate bonds was instigated by certain individu als who managed to possess large amounts of them at a nominal figure and then unlead ed them on other parties who were induced to buy by the story set afloat concerning the deposit in the bank named. It appears to be one of those matteis that no one can find out. THE DEBRIS QUESTION. This question bids fair to assume a very grave aspect la California in the near future, and If It dees not lead to bloodshed before It is finally settlsd the escape will be due to the fact that tbe plaintiff in the case fails lo pursue the matter further. It appears that some time age Judge Keyser Issued an injunction restraining certain mining companies from suffering debris—or slickens as it is generally termed—from their placer claims to flow into the Yuba river or its tributäres. The miners paid no attention lo the order of the Court, but washed away on their claims as usual. Upon the showing of this fact, Judge May hew, of the Superior Court, which was held at Marysville, made an order requiring the defendants to appear there on the 25th iust., and show cause why they should not be punished for contempt. The defendants in this case are five large companies, all operating placer mining claims in Nevada county. The order com mands the sliet iff of that county to proceed forthwith to the. mines owned by the com panies named aud close dswn aud shut off the water therefrom and to keep tlie same closed down until further order of tlie court. The aunonneemeut of this order was re ceived by the miners with much surprise but created no alarm tituoDg them. The miners have been advised by prominent counsel that the order is illegal aud they have warned tbe sheriff that he would be treated as a trespas ser if he attempted lo enforce it. The sher iff says he will seek reliable legal advice and if he is assured that It is his duty to shut off the water he will do it. Thus the matter stood at last advices. The miners are emphatic in their expres sion of a detenu mation to oppose auy inter fereuce with their mining operations and the entire population of the mining counties will stand behind them aud support them in any course, no matter how violent or desperkte they may adopt to defend what they conceive to be their rights. They all feel that it the order of the court be enforced and the mines shut down that there is uolhiug left for them but ruin and ultimate decay. Tlie placer mining interest in the foot hill counties are so interwoven with those pursued by others than tuiliers that to cripple Ute latter arlbcts the others, lienee there is but one opinion en tertained among them all concerning the course to he pursued and that is a firm, un yielding opposition to the mandate of any court looking to the closing down of the placer mines. Placer mining was the first industry pursued in California, and from 1849 to the present tittle that Slate*has produced over $980,000, 000 worth of gold, lit oueyear alone—1852 $85,000,000 were taken from the placer mints. Al the present time its hydraulic mines yield $12,000,000annually. They em ploy directly and indirectly a vast number of men and support a large population. To cause them to be closed dowu now would be killing the goose that lays llie golden egg, and at the same time work ruin to thousands who depend altogether upon the placer milt ing industry for their support. While the question lias two sides it can admit of nut ore solution that will subserve the ends of justice aud at the same lime preset ve the rights of a large number wf deserving men, and that is by permitting the miners to peace ably pursue their employment, which right they have gained by priority of possession and by virtue of sustaining tbe great indus try that made California what it is to day. "Tha citizens of Washington Territory," say the Ban Francisco Call, " are justly re sentful at the fashion iu Washingtou of ap pointing officials to govern that section of the country who have no acquaintance with its wants and who never set foot within the borders of the Territory until sent to draw a Government salary. They rightfully claim that the Admiuistaation should appoiut citi zens of Washington Territory lo fill the Ter ritorial offices, and not a beggarly set of place-hunters, who have no genuine interest iu the prosperity of the country they are sent to. The people in Arizona feel in the ssute mood about appointments." The people of Montana may also he counted in among the mourners; but in the language of a certain defunctNew York politician, "What are we going to do about Ou the 4ih iust. Lieut. Flipper, the color ed officer in the army, was arraigned at Ft. Davie, Texas, on tlie charge of embezzling public moneys and making fa'se statements in writing to his commanding officer. He is charged witft embezzling $3,791.77 at one time, ami of presenting at another time a fraudulent check for $1,440.43 to his com manding officer when submitting funds to him. T'lie Lieutenant pleaded not guilty to the charges. The testimony taken, it is said, clearly establishes his guilt. Recent advices from Spain says: "Mauy Madrid papers comment favorably on the speech of Minister Hamlin, at Boston,aud ex press the hope that the reform policy of the govertuue.it, bo;h in the peninsula ami Cu ban tariffs, will induce the American govern ment. to Lei ii tale trad", between Cuba and tue United States by some counter-reductions iu the tariff duties of America. " Sagasta and hts financial and colonial Ministers,are very well disposed to meet the Americans half wav." Mr. Blaine very properlygthinks that not withstanding precedents, Mr. MacVeagti shoald appear personally ini the prosecution of Guittaau, aud told the Attorney General as much. The latter gentleman seems to think differently, as his persuasivs eloquence hat not been heard in the trial of the asias sin. It looks very much as though Mr. Mac Veagh is shirking his duty behind the digni ty of hit office, and propose* to let the Star route ewindlere and Seoville triumph if his absence from the court room will bring it abont. TUB ELECTIONS Returns rrom the several states in which elections were held on the 8th Inst, are too meagre to enableoaeto form a correct opinion concerning tbe leault. But little importance is attached to tbe elections outside of Now York and Virginia. The result in these two states is fraught with more than ordinary po litical significance. In the former state it would show to what exteat the factions of tlie Republican party there had assimilated. In the latter it would indicate the strength of tbe repudiation element when backed np by tbe whole power of th* administration. The Indications in New Y'erk are not at all flat tering to tbe judgment of the Half-breeds who declared that witn Gonklingout of the way they could carry the state by 25,000 or 30,010 majority. General Husted— now known throughout the slate as step-ladder Husted, the republican candidate for State Treasurer is badly beaten by Maxwell, Democrat. Purcell, Demo cratic candidal# for Secretary of State, is probably elected, though it is stated, on Re publican authority, it will require an official count to determine the result. In the Legis ] attire the Democrats have made large gains, tlie Senate standing a tie and the House doubtful. Two Congressional districts for merly represented by Milter and Lapltam are said to have elected Republicans. The Democrats have doubtless carried the other two. The election in New Y'ork is extreme ly favorable to tbe Democratic ticket. Both partie* claim Virgiuia and it may require twe or three days yet to clearly determine tlie re sult in that State. Iu New Jersey the Demo crats have made a gain in tbe Legislature of three Senators' aud four Assemblyman. In Wisconsin tha Democrats have probably elected their candidate for State Treasurer. On tbe whole the elections last Tuesday seem to have resulted in large Democratic gains. New York Eelction Returns. New York, Nov. 8' —One hundred and sixty-four election districts give Purcell 24, 743; Carr, 14,523. One hundred and tlnrty two election districts give Maxwell, 18,035 ; Husted. 0,006.

They are jubilant and as sert their victory is certain. Voting: with Shotguns.

The negroes opened fire on the whites at the polls while tlie »lection was go ing on. The whiles hail no anus, C'lusequem ly no damage was done to the negroes. One man who was killed was A. A. Harvey, dem ocratic candidate for county assessor. The sheriff with a posse from this place found about one hundted negroes barricaded in the house of their leader Ed. Vauce, and they were fired tin by the negroes as they approach ed the l^ouse. Another armed body of tuen has gone from here t-i the scene to assist th sherifl} otherwise tbe election in this county passed off quietly. Pennsylvania Election. Fhii.adki.paiA, Nov. 8.—At one o'clock tha returns from 54 counties in the State In cluding Philadelphia and Alleghny coun ties show a plurality of 6,900 for Bailey, re publican for State Treasurer. This indicates Bailey's plurality will reach about 12,000. The Republicans claim a majerity in the State of 15,000 for Bailey over Noble, based upon the increase of the Republican vote in this city and of that of Lackawana county, and a few of tbe interior counties. The Democratic State Committie'a Chairman is not willing to concede Noble's defeat, hut thinks the Republican majority iu the city will be overcoma by later returns from the State. The Independent or Wolfe elements claim 65,000 to 75,000 votes for Wolfe. Eleotioa Returns. New London, Conn., November 8.— Robert Colt, Republican, is elected Senator rrom th* Ninth district by 809 plurality, over Burgees, Democratic.

Tbe saute autlii my indicates that Governor Leng is elected by from 25,060 to 30,060 ma jority. New York Elections. New Y'ork, November 9.—The Tribune says the vote of New Y'ork State has been light, and the result seems to be in donbt. The Democratic majority in the city *d th* Stale ticket is estimated at 86,000, as against 57,000, the local Democratic majority in 1879; aud iu Kings county at 2,756, as against 17, 000 local Democratic majority in 1879. The total Democratic majority in New Yerk city and Kings county is therefore 34,756. Re turn* from 140 towns outside |of New Y'ork city aud Kings county give Carr 19,847, and Purcell, 10,358; a Republican majority of 8,989. Au estimate of the State on this ba sis would give Oarr a majority outside of ew York and Brooklyn of 37,526, leaving the result apparently it. doubt until the offi cial returns are received. The name of Gen eral Husted, Republican candidate for State Treasurer, was extensively scratched, a, d he is undeniably defeated. Tlie Legislature is close in both house», mud official returns may be needed to determine its complexion. Election Returns.

Richmond, November 9.— Return; this morning are of the same g-neral tenor as last night, showing a slight additional gain for Daniel, Democratic, for Governor, but stili leaving the result in doubt. The Dem ocrats, however, claim they have gained five more members of tbe Legislature aud lost one, making a gain of thirteen, which neces sitates a further gain of two lo give them a majority on joint ballot. The Readjustere are confident that their Stale ticket is elected. They estimate Camerou's majority at from 15,000 to 20,000. As to the Legislature, they claim a good working majority on joint ballot. Chicago, November 9.— Philadelphia, Fa. nothing was received at politi cal headquar ters this morning to alter materially tbe re sult already aunouncod.
