Our late distinguished fellow citizen, Hon.
Charles H. Bryan, was buried yesterday from
the Ormsl.y County Court House. The re
mains were followed to the place of inter
ment bjv the Justices of the Supreme Court,
the Attorney General and other members of
the State Government, also by representatives
of Ornisby, Storey and Washoe county bars
and by citizens in carriages and on foot,
Tender hands had woven a wreath of flowers
and placed it upon the coffin, and the im
pressive burial service of the Episcopal church
was read over the open grave by Rev H. L.
Foote. He sleeps in the grave-yard by whose
gate lie the remains of that other Ohioan, the
late John C. James. We notice a massive
sand-stone monument at the head of John's
restinsj-plaee. Inscribed upon it are these

The Case ok Wyatt. The Carson Valley
News which came to hand last eveniii" makes
a statement of the facts concerning the sudde
death of W. G, Wyatt, from which we extract
as foil. vs : "He left Cradlebaugh's-Thursday
morning about !) o'clock' to go to Clias 'fay
lor s ranch, Pine-nut, with a letter to Tavlor
from Cradlebau'-h. lie seemed to be in his
usual state of mind. Was found in the cor
ner of tiie fence inside the pjisture, a short
distance this side of Cradlebaugh's, last Sat
urday night. Tracks showed that he had
widked from the road to the fence, a few rods
distant, set his cane over and leaned it against
the fence on the inside, as though he designed
climbing over. The supposition is that when
he readied the top of the fence he was
attacked with vertigo, induced by a chronic
disease of the brain, and fell headlong to the
ground. There were a few slight scratches
on the head, and some signs of blood in the
mouth. The marks in the sand on wliich he
as lying showed signs of terrible convulsions.
The body was tirst discovered late Saturday
evening. The Coroner took charge of the
body next morning and summoned a jury of
inquest. An empty vial was found in his
pocket, and the tirst presumption was that he
had committed suicide by taking poison. A
chemical test of the few remaining drops in
the bottle was sufficient, however, to satisfy
the jury that such was not the case, and a
lost moi-tem examination was demanded.

the Horntown Corjoration his Honor acquit
ted himself sensibly but not with exceptional
brilliancy, as follows: ".Municipal govern
ment, lie said, was the representative of Re
publican institutions, and although founded
in wisdom, such governments had many dis
advantages. Unless great care was exercised
abuses were liable to creep in and the public
moneys be expended in extravagance. The
unearthing of fraud in some cities of the
I'nioii during the past few years had created
distrust of public officials, which had caused
the best citizens to abandon all participation
n governmental affairs; but a new light had
dawned upon the people, and there was now
no reason why good citizens should not take
hold and manage municipal affairs. A grave
responsibility rested upon them, 11ns city
was being sorely tried just now, and its affairs
demanded the exercise of as much care from
those intrusted with them as their private
anairs out. If they exercised due diligence
they might not be able to please everybody,
but when they resigned their offices they
would at least have the consciousness of hav

Broke His Leo. The Reno Journal of
Wednesday has the following account of an
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Leahy, boarding
house keeper at the new mill, Mackay-Fair s
camp, met with a misfortune in breaking his
leg. He was on top of the house fixing the
stove-pipe, slipped and fell to the ground
with sufficient force to cause the result above
stated. Dr. Dawson was sent for and went
up last evening to render assistance.
This is well and truly said. It will gratify
his multitude of friends to know that it is
there If we were the man or the set of
men who are in authority over yon Square,
we should regret that we had not seen fit to
sow ttie same witn grass seeu sufficiently
early in this present season for it to have
received the blessing of the rains which have
been poured out, these late days and nights
from the hand of a bountiful and special
Providence. Indeed, we do not believe that
it is too late even now, to do some profitable
planting there. Indeed, also, we do not
know that we should feel called upon to shoot
or otherwise assault, mutilate or destroy any
midnight tellow citizen or citizens who might,
could, would, or should be detected in the
act of sprinkling the same with the seed of
the blue-grass, the white-clover, the red-top,
the lawn-grass or the fragrant timothy, or the
same mixed judiciously in properly adjusted
proportions. Possibly those whose duty it is
to cultivate and adorn these grounds would
wink a sly, sagacious wink, or laugh a laugh
of self-satisfaction in the sleeve of 'em over so
considerable an item of expense saved and
gratuitously incurred. And this consideration
uay act as a deteirent and prevent the nnnight
excursion that we have hinted at. Butifourpoor
councils would avail we would say plant, and

Fryer's wine house is sadly in need of some
repairs. Especially is the drainage in a
shocking plight. Whenever the waters of
Tread way Creek are diverted into the gullies
and ditches tllei'e-ahout, great pools and pud
dles are formed, and they bid fair to stagnate
into unsightly reservoirs of green scum and
wide and deep receptacles of all the garbage
and rubbish of the neighborhood. Great
breeders of all febrile diseases, these vats of

ticable plan for the drainage or tilling of
these nasty ponds much wiU be done to av ert
an accumulation of malarious gases, unplea

Everybody agrees that this is the most
copious Alay rainlall seen here since (.(.
Certainly no later comer has seen the like.
We look for wide-spread good results here

blacksnake about the beast's crupper when
down would go tho runty brute's ears and up
would fly his heels, like fury. There did not
seem to be any immediate damage ensuing.
fhe kicks were vented on certain projections
of cord-wood, rattling as they struck with a
not unamusnig series of thumps, lhe bov

diversion with his toil, and the horse was far
from objecting. Altogether the occurrence

Uncle John Gibbons, M. 8. L. C. , and
driver of the Belmont stage, says that, for the
circumference of a mile around the Smokey
valley salt works the air is full of fine
particles ot salt, giving tiie appearance or a
snow storm. He avers that when the ranch
ers want salt for household and dairy use
they just go out and set a sack in the salt
shower and obtain what they require in a
lew moments. He also states tliat tne
saline impregnated atmosphere is a sure cure
for rheumatism. He kuows a man who was
so crippled with rheumatism as to have m)
use of his limbs, and who walked thiriy
miles to get in range of the salt air; and in
fifteen minutes after it first struck his lungs
he held four jacks aganst au "ace full."
