TO WIOX IT MAT COXCERX. Why ire are here and what we intend liing. may be. and ought to he. ex I:tinfd. As our name indicates, we pur ine making "a new appeal" to the K-pnliiiui6 of this city, county and State, to 8tand steadfast, once more, for the principles and candidates of their party; to abide in the fulness of faith and hope, by the work which they hare helped their fellow Bepnhlieans through out the land to accomplish; and to make eerfcun to redeem the State from the taint which fell upon it by the unfortunate re t of the last general election. We KIi.tp that these objects are well worth o-!r earnest efforts; well worthy of such aa. "appeal as the heartiest lover of his wintry and the principles which alone i'in hold its institutions together, could desire to have presented to his fellow citi zens. Something further, in m.ilring this " ap ical" let us say: We propose KinVing be neath the surface of thn pvat and mo niectous agitation which now pulsates throughout the nation, a'l that may, how-ev,-r rrmrtely. tend to distract the party f i-in its true purpose, or divert the atten tion of its members from the importance of tlie issues of the hour; keeping con stantly in view the paramount need of a tii st allegiance to our party and its prin ciples; and holding as secondare to the full snvrem. and vindication, and ratifica tion thereof, the aspirations to political s of any man. be he a candidate for rait isFiitee Senator, or an applicant f r tli' humlledSlhu-'e within the gift of s'v people. In owr'PvES?- W8 propose t hold the helm of "Th xJAppxai." steadily upon such a course asM our "mprrfect judgment shall best guide ns in th wake of the Ship of State while she, tin i.r the pilotage of our honored cap t:ii, Gbast, seeks the haven of safety :i::d the secure anrhorage of reasserted 11-puhliiain principles. It tihaU le our -n.i-avor to assist in giving warning to t'i'W who stand upon the watch towers au-l .-dong the picket line of the parry, uh-neviT anything shall present itself u hi,mh threatens to endanger the success of tlii miMt important end. We may not aX ire to the dignity of a pilot, but we s.'ijll try to do our best in the capacity of a fig-whiatlr. . S mach. brieily and hurriedly, for our p ini -a! intents and punoses. Now n f r vr.ls concerning this attempt at a rn-x.d of our business relation with tli- Topl- of Carson and its vicinity: For s cn-whsre near six years we conducted a -I i!y p.Mir hem. By very close econ omy and the good management of our u u- i's.-nt associate in business, we made th -H I Ah?riL a success. Certain causes, n.vi!ej for us to explain, induced us to s 11 tost paper. It was neither a wise it. r a profitable movement so to do so it ha. p.tven. But it is useless to rrv over s; i'.t milk snd we are not purticularly li .j.pv in the I-H-hryiaose line anyhow- rh a good heart for the hard work 'i 1 n.--essary self denial which must lie . !; :uitered if we would not fail, we h- r-'4i?h onVr to recommence our rela- ti-T. with the good people of this busy, pnj-; -nius and promising little city in -. future we always had full confi ! ; whwe improvemeuts we long since :i I -at-d and predicted: and whose per qi'i uee and the ultimate prosperity of . U e industrious citizens we have never il.wiTitAi. We come, then, with no poor month, no purpose of droning orfavor Hkiag, but with a fair and square inten tion to honestly give and take, and quite a-; honestly craving no indulgences, but rather, standing upon our merits in our turty and in the field of journalism, to o r-ly ask for a fair chance to make our stru gle toward the goal of success. TiM renewing our "appeal;" ettting traukly our creed and honestly avowing ur business purposes; asking nothing Jn:t an opportunity to illustrate our de- s-r wings at the hands of our neighbors and associates, we feel that any promises of future action or intention would be ut -f place a voluntary pledging which ta-nbi be superfluous if not impertinent. M irreTi; if we may not stand upon our w-n -known record; if. known as well as v- w, we C-in't succeed without prom ises, wa had better never to have made this venture. Our capacities are known; and while we propose for our own ad vancement and reputation, if for nothing else to do the best we can, if we fall short of what we are able to accomplish, then, indeed, we deserve neither encour agement, support nor success. And on these terms we fling our banner to the breeze. THE APPKOACHIXS DISSOLrTIOX Their doom stares in the face, the Possum Democracy and their panders, the so-called Liberal Bepublicans. Maine will reecho, to-day, the unmistakable voice which baa just come from North Carolina and Vermont, and which, before, had been so significantly uttered from the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the now regenerated region " where rolls the Oregon." The " tidal wave which was to sweep Grant and the Re publican party out of existence, never amounting to anything more nota ble than a sluggish undertow while at its height, now recedes in a lifeless ebb, leaving the rotten old hulk of the Demo cratic party hopelessly stranded in the mud and ooze while Jonah Greeley, buried forever in the whale's belly of po litical damnation, is borne out into that dank, fathomless and abyssmal purgatory which is set apart by an all-wise Provi dence for those, such as he, who have committed the unpardonable political sin! And there will be a double death, brought about by a reciprocity of fatal ef fects : For while simulating an acquies cence in the Inevitable in order to place themselves in a position to struggle for a mere negation in politics the Democracy consented to swallow the fluffy carcase of Horace Greeley, with all his isms and all his heresies up m his whitened hairs, and while the dreadful dose has brought that sure and slow and wretched death which results from an incurable nausea, Greeley, himself, false to all that he ever earnestly advocated, is already so utterly and irretrievably a decomposed political cadaver as to be intolerably offensive even to the tenderest mourner who stands be side his bier or the most hardened grave digger whose offices his conang iulierx! lasy demand ! The history of American politic"" "affords no parallel to the mutual courses of loraee Greeley and the Democratic party, as this year devel oped- Voluntary and shameless political and professional prostitution to gratify the lust of office on the one hand ; the eager recantation of all distinctive creeds ; the precipitate abandonment of all life long professions and the affectation of swallowing and relishing the upheavings of their traditional foes upon the other these are the terms of a political partner ship the like of which never was known before at least never before proclaimed in the open light of day and in the ears of an enlightened public, enjoying such ailvantasres as the Nineteenth Centurv places within the easy reach of every American citizen. Now, while it is a maxim in politics which is almost infalli ble, that negatives cannot secure positive support ; that deserters, seeking emolu ments as a reward for their treason get little or nothing but what is their due in the shape of retributive justice ; and that the weak and lamentable rage of non com batants who supplement their impotency by enacting the wretched role of the Apostate ne-ver arouses any genuine ar dor nor secures any effective following. what hope can there be of rearo-.ising to active, enthusiastic effort a conglomerate party of soreheads and eternally defeated stragglers whose onlv chance of success was whatever of real or theoretical delu sion, dumbfounding and consternation may he snpposed to have fallen upon the country when the Cintunnatti mass meet ing of mercenaries, soreheads and dis banded postmasters had concluded their preposterous labors ? The coming disso lution the final yielding r.p of the ghost by thh now emasculated Democratic par ty (whose broken will and demoralized purpose calls up, through 1'ie death rat tle in its throat a mocking cheer for Hor ace Greeley) is not nearer at hand than was to have been expected; but, base as its lift and its latter deeds have been, more dreadfully wretched, comfortless, depraved and pitiful than any fate its worst enemies conld . have looked or hoped for ! Let its remains be buried in a common trench with the friendless corpse of soreheadism, the wasted bile of Srunnerism, the ineffectual machinations and the early blighted schemes of " The Professional Foreigner," and the daft am bitions and incoherent political maunder ings of Horace Greeley, , . . Ths Maine Gubernatorial and Legisla tive election takes plc jfVday. a. kbblt jomsop. ' We cannot hope to add anything of weQ merited eulogy to the memory of our departed friend whose name heads this paragraph : for all that could be said in testimony of his better qualities has al ready been uttered by writers and speak ers far better qualified than we are for the task. We may say, however, that when Neely Johnson died one of our warm- est-b carted friends and best and most hospitable neighbors went away forever, It is no disparagement to any man among us to say that none of his townsmen ever pruveu mmseii a more per iisieui inena than he : and that no table was ever spread in Nevada where pleasant re unions were so frequent and where the stranger's chair was placed with so much of constant, thoughtful and graceful hos pitality. We doubt if any public man on the Pacific Coast was ever able to claim so large an acquaintance as our dead friend ; and over none who are gone has an unaffected sense of personal loss been more widely felt. May the grass grow green above his distant grave ; and may such sweet memories as cluster about him grow mellow with the mellowing fu ture. THE GRANT AXD WILSON CU B OF C A K.SOX. We are very proud of the Grant and Wilson Club organized here. It is full of enthusiasm and alive to the issues and requirements of the campaign. The meeting held at the Theatre on the eve ning of the 31st inst. was one of the most gratifying evidences of the war spirit of this organization; for, although there had been but short notice given; and, al though the' speakers were merely such as home talent could afford when a good deal strained, (so far as the first speaker is concerned), yet, with the help ef the glee club and the band, a more earnest and ardent demonstration of a faith in and love for the good cause his rarely been exhibited here. Let ns have some more such meetings; some Jjore stirring music; sonie more of not letting by-gones be by-gones; some more campaign sing ing by the glee club, and we shall all be in better spirits to rally 'round the flag whin the bugle-notes warn us to action in Novemlier. NEWS MATTER. When an Editor who has been com pelled, for many months, to smother his fires and cramp his genius within the narrow limits of " an occasional corres pondent gets hold of "a brand new set of type and presses, as we have, it is to be expected that he will be inconsiderate ly egotistical and vapor a good deal of what "we" are going to do &c. This is a hint as to the reason of our limited supply of news matter in the present is sue. V,'t shall endeavor to be more of a gossip in the future. THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM. We republish, on our fourth page, the Platfonn adopted by the Cepublican party through its National Convention held at Philadelphia in July ; and as ap propriate matter for frequent repemsal we shall keep it standing until the morning of our coming triumph, the 5th day of November next. A more stirring and comprehensive political document has never been devised by the representatives of any party and it is well worth keeping in sight. Thb Mcsh axd Mils Pbiuaky. Since the days when Warren Wasson, Judge Cradlebaugh, the ever-faithful Smith and Sam King (Smith's steadfast alternate) used to hold mass meetings in the sacred name of Andy Johnson there never was a more harmless and absurd political pumpkin picking than the vegetarian pri mary of last Saturday. It aroused about as much vivacity as a seed cucumber and conveyed not more of significance than a frost-bitten watermelon. James B. McQuillan, well known 011 this coast as a newspaper writer, hits gone to Auburn, cautomiii, to tuKe charge of a new Republican paper which is to be published there. to s iys the Virginia 1-onU-Je. Hoeacb Gbekxet will be President when Pinchower is elected sheriff of Sto rey I'ountv.'
