MORNING APPEAL. iRiniv. .Jl'XE 15. 1ST. THE HARRINGTON CASE. Some of our Storey County contemporaries are very much wrought up by the decision of the Supreme Court in the Harrington Case. They even go so far as to speak of the Court in terms of disrespect. It is quite the cus tom to say that nothing should be said or done by those whose opinions are worth hav ing and quoting, in derogation of the Judici ary; that the courts should be held to be above reproach, etc., etc. The sentiment which prompts this principle, or dogma, or notion, is a good one. Of course, like all such ideas, it is like to fall into the company of the platitudes. But the germ is good. The non-technical person is apt to be impa tient of quibbles. When a great case awaits a decision we are prone to rebel against the weight of the finer points of the Practice Act. But it is in order that the Bench may be left free and uninfluenced to weigh these mites in the very delicate scales of justice, and never be intimidated nor swerved from the thread of their conclusions by any influence outside of their own careful consideration, that it should be treated v, ith respect and its decis ions accented as final. We have no doubt JUDGE PRATT'S MARRIAGE. Judge Orrin C. Pratt of the United States District Court of California, was married in this city on Wednesday to Miss Lizzie E. Jones, also of California. Judge Pratt ar rived in New York a week ago last Thursday, and stopped at the Sturtevant House, the affianced bride stopping with friends in Fifth Avenue in the meantime. The newly-married couple started for Philadelphia immedi ately after the ceremony, but are expected to return to New York within a few days. It wi!l be remembered that Jude Pratt rnt with an annoying adventure soon after his arrival in New York, lie was accosted on the street by a young man who addressed him familiarly as 31r. fcunth. t he Judge unwittingly corrected the stranger's apparent mistake by giving him his luuue and title. The man apologised and the two parted. Judge Pratt had not walked far when he was accosted by another man who called him by his right name, and, after some conversation, induced him to enter a "bunko" gambling house at No. 108 East Fourteenth street. While there the police made a raid on the place and arrested Jude Pratt with the pro prietors. In Court Judge Pratt refused to testify against the gamblers, and the case was dismissed. He is a handsome old gentleman, tail, erect and with snow-white hair. N. Y. World. The Rabbit Pest in some parts of this State is something quite incredible to those who are not acquainted with the facts concerning this apparently harmless animal. We find the following in the Pioche Record of Satur- that the decision of the Supreme Court in the lla.v Harrington uase asserts a verv viuu ami es sential principle. It may be necessary for ' the purification of society and the satisfac- ; tioli of a popular sense of justice in Storey j County that Harrington should sufi'er death J upon the scaffold. He is a very bad man and one whose pardoning out of the Penitentiary was a grave mistake; but he had better be let go Scott free than that any principle or tech nicality of judicature should be slurred over, ignored or smothered by any exactions or re sorts of expediency. We believe Capital pun ishment a barbarism. We are sure that its contemplation either inflicts a too painful shock upon sensitive minds or brutalizes them. The custom admits the validity and virtue of personal violence, even unto death. The gibbet is the Law's jumping 3 place. Thus the acutest of all human sciences con fesses itself at its wit's end. Heing cornered, it smites and kills; and then invents the eva sive self-excuse of having done a murder for example's sake. This is the theorem of Han neman reversed. Like kills like. The Inv professes to discourage man-killing by killing the man who kills. lut the Law's homicides should always be justifiable: else itself, by its own terms, should hang. So the 3Jokn ing Appeal accepts in respectful silence the decision of the Court in this Case. aw was enacted by one of the Legisla tures of Nevada ottering a reward for the scalp or skin of every coyote or wolf killed in the State. This had the effect of nearly ex terminating the coyote and of breeding such a nuisance in the shape of the Jackass Rabbit that the last Legislature repealed the law. During the time the law was in force rabbits commenced to increase and multiply to an alarming extent, eating tip crops of alfalfa and grass, and wherever there was a green spot of vegetation destroying it unless the ranchers took proper precautions ag'tinst the nuisance. This state of affairs caused the re peal of the law in regard to coyotes as they were the natural enemies of the rabbits and succeeded in keeping down their number so that their destruction did not amount to much. Ranchers in 1 tali and Nevada have been in the habit of meeting together of late years and having a regular rabbit drive so as to kill them oil' to prevent destruction of crops. At one drive in Utah last yearo.OOO of these little animals were slaughtered. We hear of many complaints this season of depredations by tab bits and of intended drives to try and thin them out. Minnesota's Default. In an article on the default of the State of Minnesota upon certain bonds, the New York Tribune saj3 : Minnesota in 1853 issued 2,275,000 State bonds to four land grant railroad companies, to aid in the costruction of railways, and re ceived in return from the companies an equal number of their first .mortgage bonds. The companies failed. The State immediately foreclosed the mortgages, and thereby ac quired title to their property, which embraced several million acres of land and 240 miles of graded railroad ready for the superstructure The State then defaulted upon the interest of the ?2,2i,000 bonds, the proceeds of which had been used by the companies in creating the very property which the fctate had by ita foreclosure proceedings acquired, and by con current resolutions of her Legislature and by a direct vote of the people of the State fairly repudiates them. The Pope on the Emperor of Germany. The Pope replied to the address of the Ger man pilgrims, likened the German Emperor to a new Attila. They knew, he said, that nations, like individuals, suffered from moral maladies, and that toward both God stretched forth His hand with opportune remedies, sometimes affecting a cure by speaking with the still, small voice which penetrates the heart; at others, when that was not enough, w ith a voice like that of a furious tempest. Their nation had in times past suffered from serious moral, malady, and in thc$e days he had heard good Prussian Catholics declare that some one was wanted 'to arouse the people from their sloth. God, in fact, had arisen, and used a scourge such as he em ployed centuries ago when he made use of an Attila. He had awakened the generous Ger man nation. This new Attila thought he would pull down, but instead of that he built up. London Times' Rome Correspondent. C.Ci:ht Him. Lopez, a Mexican who was in Austin with a band of horses, a f;w days ago, and sold them to parties residing here, turns out to have been dealing in property not his own. It seems, as we are informed, the horses were the property of Woodruff & Ennor, Palisade, and were not brought from Lower California, as represented by Lopez. The owners ef the horses telegraphed to dif ferent localities, describing the recreant, and to his surprise he was arrested in Belmont, in possession ot one ot trie norses. A -ur. Brown from Palisade, deputized with a writ to make the arrest, left here for Belmont this morning, w ho will return the offender to the officers in Elko county in which the prop erty was taken. linville, June 1.'. MASON & CO., I SPECIAL TOL IX COEEETT BLOCK, NORTH CARSON STREET, CARSOV CITTf, nEVADA. When the Government reserves its lands for the Indians themselves, and not in its own name and for its own planting and fumbling and blundering with a stupid theory, we begin to see some possible benefit arising. But to reserve from the market a vast area of desirable lands and then hoist upon one corner of it a vermin-breeding agency, making it poverty-stricken with a parsimonious semi occasional dole of moneys which are too few to leave anything to the red man after the white man has performed his necessary theft, this is imbecility, public improvidence, Congres sional slipshoddy. Herewith, as follows, we present a statement of a projected new order of things, from the Elko Independent of June 13 : J. S. Mayhugh, Register of the Land Office in this place, informs us that the Government has ordered a reservation of MOO acres of land on Coyote Creek, situated a s:iort distance west of Elko, for the use of the Indians which is known as the Carlin farm. A portion of the ground designated has been cultivated by the Indians for the past iro years, as an experiment, and from the recent action of the Department in withdraw ing this land from the market it is inferred that the Indian agriculturists are regarded as a success. This probably has reference to the farm started by Naches, the Piute chief tho' we thought lie obtained that land from the Cen tral Pacific Railway Company. It seems singular that the Government should assert an ownership as against the Indians to any lands in this State. If the title was not originally in the red-man where was it! If the Indians have parted with their title, what did they get for it( Is there a treaty; and if so how much ? Iv .JrsTJ" :: Cot ut.

A Heroic Young Lady. - The Misses Vance of Memphis, Tenn., have been among the most famous beauties of the South, and one of them, Miss Susie, obtained some liter ary reputation a few years ago by a popular story ot fashionable outliern lite. A few days since another sister, Miss Lulie Vance, achieved reputation of another, but certainly not less valuable sort, by an heroic attempt to rescue a drowning child. At a picnic party just below Memphis a little son of Mr. Alex ander fell into the Mississippi, and Miss Vance, an expert swimmer, who was near him, junped into the v.aur without an in stant's hesitation, and had almost reached the drowning boy when he sank beyond recovery. Meanwhile one of the gentlemen of the party was swimming out to her rescue, but, discard ing his aid, she reached the shore without dif ficulty. The child's body was shortly after ward recovered, but life was extinct. m:w aiv t;itTisi:Mi:xTs. CARSON THEATER. nil". INVuMIWif.vni.E nlJATOU. COL. ROBERT G.

Reade's dramatization of was beintr enacted in a small Australian town, where the choice of actors was not great, Mary Morrison, on mak ing her exit to bring on her little Willie, of 4 years, was shocked to find a lubberly boy of 14 who must go on, as no other was to be had. The Fanner Allen of the play was, no doubt, equally shocked to see Mary coming on the stage with a boy nearly as large as herself. What was worse, the audience began to titter. But Farmer Allen was equal to the emer gency, and, instead of asking, "How old are you, my little boy?" said, "How old are you, my strapping fellow.'"' probably hoping 'that the boy would have the good sense to give an age consistent with his size. The boy, how ever, with painful fidelity to the text, and in a sepulchral voice that made the answer all the more preposterous, said, "Four to five, Grandpapa." "Forty-five!" exclaimed the Farmer cheerfully: "von look it mr !,-. you look it. Thuie was a laugh, for a mo ment, but the play was saved from shipwreck.
