StSDW JVSE 10. 1877 NOTES AND QUERIES. THB PIC-VIC. Picnics are of very ancient origin. So IUU..U were all the people held subject to the parentiil authority in the Mosaic age that a whole nation was spoken of as the Children of Israel. These were the earliest picnicers, these "Children," of which we have any well-statc-d information. Their junketings toward the Land flowing with Milk and Honey reveal them in an attitude which is as closely akin to that of the picnic parties of to day as anything of the less remote past. It was very evident yesterday that the Children of the Land of Washoe had taken a day and were making the rn03t of it. It was an event replete with the most striking peculiarities. Lot us call attention to one of these peculiari ties. We were wending our pensive way along toward the roof-tree, yonder. -Uongaide of the old Bob Sharp place, resting in the shade, were a man and a woman and svoral children. Evidently this was a fam ily who had come out, en masse, to have the tan of the occasion. These holiday-takers were too thoroughly enjoying what they were feasting their eyes on to repress any pertinent remarks which came uppermost. " Papa," said a voice which seemed to come from a pale littie girl, " why don't you buy some trees? ' We do not know what Papa said; but we do know what it was in that baby's heart that made her wonder why anybody whom she regarded, in her simple roxil, as J all powerful as Papa, would consent to live j without wo charming a thing as trees and ras and flowers and shrubbery the green resting places that God has made for tired eves to rest upon. A stout chunk of a boy of 10, with a harty brown on his cheeks and a lad's self-assertive swagger, spoke up and said, (his tone being that of a traveled person whose voice was an authority in such matters), " Well, them's the biggest trees ever I seen." Bless his small, dissembling heart, they are the only trees that have any business to be called trees that his desert born hand ever rubbed against. They are something revealing the possible monsters of the forests of which he has here and there read a word Here, then, ia something for which these yearly picnics of the school children of yon bleak hill-side are worth encouraging. Here is a whole family illustrating the large majority of those who were here yesterday whose children are as strange to the sight and shada of groves and waving grass and the necking shadows of wind-stirred leaves as the children of Labrador are to the lush foliage and dense-grown jungles of Siam. Sharp's garden, Tread way's orchard, these shaded streets, the quiet, nestling flower gardens, the growing fruit of this little Oasis are to the children who live their lives in Virginia and Gold Hill, like the tropics to the eye of the unaccustomed child of the frozen North. Yesterday's experience was a lesson in geography, in botany, in arbor-culture, in the quiet possibilities of another life than that hot, toilsome, feverish existence which is livid beside dump piles and at the mouth of shafts and tunnels. The mass of young life was tremendous. It was the very hight of human animation, healthful, vigorous, and happy. It is folly and a bore to moralize over it : mere labor and waste work to talk or trv to talk of possibilities of the future. But there they were, more than a round thousand of children from under the shadow of Mount Davidson, reared in sight of the desert, and bound w hither ? Somebody had some vain words to say last Winter of preventive measures which should interpose between those little folks and the limitless stretch and scope of vice which lies all about them like a stenciling sea, some means of keeping them measurably pure. But they said the time was not yet ripe, and we do not believe ;t is. Something, perhaps, must come to shock the people into the appalling dangers of a community, one three hundreth part of which is in the Penitentiary ! But there was a good deal of hearty zeal in the sports and, plays these little folks had yesterday; and they all seemed to get along with as little jarring as any children are apt to get on with; and they went away home tired and satisfied. They tell us at the depot that notwithstanding all the foresight and anticipation and planning wlii'h was had in contemplation of this great jaunt, there were hundreds and hun dreds in Virginia City and Gold Hill and at the Mound House (from Dayton) who were unable to get transportation. The town looked as if it were the Fourth of July or Circus Day. There were some noisy men and lad3 something approaching the hood lum sort in and about the crowd; and these had their liquor and were the worse for it of course. But the bulk of the multitude were sober and mild mannered and disposed to niake the merrymaking an enjoyment and not a calamity. There was dancing and sparking iind all that in superabundance. There was the usual proportion of tired mothers who felt a trifle worse when the thing had ended than if they had done a day's wasliing. There were the lost children and the anxious guard ians; and there were the small disappoint ments and the little jealousies but in the main the excursion was a success, and we heard of never an accident. As to the day, i it was a perfect type of our best Jus wootisr right hot in the middle of the day. The Washington Guard band did the horn blow ing in their usual acceptable manner; and there was a certain convocation of bae bail ers with striped stockings. A very tirod am ateur picnicer attempted to explain what these Olympians did and won, but his tech nics put our bedazzled perceptibilities to the test and we found that he spake in an un known tongue. DEATH OF MRS. DOCTOR WATERS. After many weeks of great suffering upon her own part and a constant strain of anxiety upon the part of her devoted husband and her loving children, (who were her trusting and trusted friends and companions, always), Mrs. Waters, the wife of our highly respected townsman, Dr. J. W. Waters, died yesterday morning. She was a native of St. Lawrence county, New York. Here, then, is another family broken past all healing save by the healing hand of all merciful Time. Now, all at once, the utter irreparability of their loss will come upon this household. VV e speak the sense of all who know these bereaved ones when we offer them a heartfelt, earnest sympathy. The funeral service will take place at" Dr. Waters's residence at 2 o'clock p. ii. to-day. THE CIRCUS. MASON & CO., Et 60&8E2T BLOCX, NORTH CARSON STREET, CAB SOW SITY. AETADi. SPECIAL NOTICE. MOLKnALS AXD RETAIL To-day the Mob.vlvg Appeal produces the big "ad" of Montgomery Queen s Circus. It speaks for it3elf, being a very cleverly con cocted ad." The two features of this show which render it peculiarly attractive and novel are the two-horned Rhinoceros and the horned horse the first ever seen west of the Rocky Mountains. As to the circus well, a circus is a circus, anynow; dui mis is ine best ever seen in these parts the best one to come always is. Bot Lost. Last night Olficer Doron in formed us that he was in search of a boy whose description had been telegraphed to the SherilTs office from Virginia City, who had been lost during or after the picnic. He was dressed in a gray suit and a pink shirt and is about 6 years old. Name not given. Strange that they should go home first before missing him. New Music. We have received from Messrs. Sherman & Hyde, San Francisco, a copy of a new schottische, entitled, " When My ship comes in. " This music is here pre sented as played by Ballenberg's Opera. It was arranged by Leonard Georges. M.

About 10,000 cords have already been landed at that point. The Virginia and Truckee Railroad are hauling it away at the rate of 200 cords a day. The Perils of thk Ccban Coast. The following allusion to the perils of the Cuban coast is made by the New York Herald of May 19; One of our New York detectives had occa sion some time since to go among the wreck ers in the Bahamas, in an insuranoe case. He found them such a desperate class that, accustomed as he was to deal with criminals, he breathed freely only when he had left them hundreds of miles away, aa he knew they would have killed him had ther even suspected his mission or identity.
