FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 14. 1877 PINNEY VS. PINNEY. When a subject rises up in such tremend ous proportions, or presents such a mountain ous magnitude of the dreadful or the outrag eous or the depravities as to seem indescriba ble in terms the Mornixq Appeal generally avoids it. This shirking habit of ours has probably been noticed by our constant read ers. There are some predicaments which leave one with but two courses between which to make choice either to be silent or open one's voice in a sudden up-gush of vigor ous swearing. Silence only gives satisfaction m a negative wav. It is like starving out a threatened attack of fever. The application of a dose of oaths is like a blister piaster, or a string tied round a fractious horse's lip. It gives the patient something to think of besides his aches and ailments. But it is held better to suffer in silence than to be guilty of the indecorous practice of profanity. But the pure-in-heart don't know what a re leif it is to the o ercharged unregenerate mind to explode into a brief broadside of well rounded expletives. What we instinct ively avoid in our silence upon the class of subjects alluded to, is incoherence, anger disgust, loathing. These sensations rarely find adequate expression. Pinney is a subject which we have avoided. We dislike to deal with such unpleasant things. He has had hearing by the public ear only too thoroughly and too long. But he has been made an ob iect and subject of consequence because of the reason that he has had a widelv-read newspaper press to give his sayings publicity and advocate his cause. So he comes to be treated as a quasi legitimate subject of news paper comment. He has made himself and been made almost as prominent a matter of comment as the hog-cholera or the potato-bug. Lately his divorced wife, nee Flora Bray, has been emptying her budget of woes against him. A little while ago she made complaint in Court that she was the victim of a conspir acy by Pinney, Burr and others to defraud her out of her homestead. Now she makes a sworn statement of the personal abuses the fisticuffs, the eye blackings, the kicks, the hair pullings, etc. , with which he treated her from time to time and place to place, during their married life. It presents a strange pic ture of what the Master styles " Domestic discord and fierce civil strife." George, ac cording to Flora's testimony thumped her with crreat regularity and violence almost daily for several years. One would think she would have got so used to it as to expect and rather like it; but it seems she got tired of the amusement, at last. She went to Notary Yoell, at San Jose, on the 5th of this month and told her story, making a complaint of the same, in legal form; and upon filing it in the Nineteenth Judicial Court, San Francisco, she prays for the intervention of the strong arm of the law to prevent this violent man from persuing and beating and pestering her, in the future. We have intimated that we find it difficult to do this subject justice. W are glad to have another and more com petent commentator deal with it. We sub mit the following from the Record Union of Wednesday: "Mrs Flora Pinney", says tbat paper, "has again attracted public attention by filing an affidavit praying that her late husband may be enjoined from following or interfering with her. In this affidavit she gives a recital, the allegations of which more than confirm all the previous statements as to Piuney's brutality. According to Mrs. Pinney he was in the habit of beating and abusing her throughout her married life, hav ing commenced this practice within ten days of their marriage. A long list of specific as saults is given, varying from slaps on the face to kicks which threw her down, and inter ludes agreeably diversified by dragging her about the house by the hair. She alleges that the valiant Pinney once kicked her senseless when she was enceinte, and that he beat her shockingly because she refused to give up her homestead to him. The affida vit altogether is very remarkable reading, and in turning to Finney's organ, the Chronicle, we of course find it engaged in the congenial task of defending its pet wife-beater and vil lain in ordinary. It apparently had not seen the affidavit, but it coolly declares, with its nose in the air, that ' the Chronicle fully re-1 plied to Mrs. Pinney's first complaint at the time it was made, and Bhowed conclusively by whom it was inspired and for what purpose, and it only remains now for the appearance of this Becond recital of imaginary griefs to show how degraded a ring sheet can become in the service of its masters.' Well, that is partly true. The Chronicle's defense of Pin ney, the wife-beater, does tend to show how degraded a ring sheet can become in the ser vice of its masters. And such masters! What a position for an aspiring, ringsmashing, popularity-seeking, paper is this! To be the mere thrall and abject attorney of a George M. Pinney: and to be wielding the stuffed club of its journalistic wrath against a feeble woman, who according to her own showing has com mitted the high crime of attempting to de fend herBelf through the Courts against the cowardly brutality ef her whilom husband. And this congenial and most appropriate champion and .attorney of Pinney does not hesitate to assert that th poor woman has perjured herself. Her narrative of her base husbands' cruelty and abuse is stigmatized as a 'recital ot imaginary grievances,' with the prompt partisanship of a shyster divorce law yer, and she is sternly informed that it is like her impudence to make a second affida vit after the Chrenicle had 'fully replied to' her first complaint, and had exposed her sin ister motives. Perhaps it would be prudent for Mrs. Pinney to seek protection against the Chronicle, as well as against its client. Judging from its present attitude we should hardly be surprised if it arrogated an equal right with Pinney to knock her down and drag her out. She had better be careful, for her late husband has evidently found a champion who believes in wife-beating, and who holds that no woman would or could ever complain of her husband's brutality unless she had darkly malignant moiives, or was in spired by a "ring." On the whole the public will be inclined to agree with us in the opin ion that the Chronicle is just now engaged in a iittie tne dirtiest Dusiness tnai even its va ried experience in foul employments has con neated it withal ". ERUPTION OF COTOPAXL LATEST TELEGRAMS. The Great International Rifle Match was begun at Creedmoor yesterday by the Amer ican and British teams. The Americana won the 800 yard match by 10 points.

Under date of New York, September 11 we have the following: A letter from Latacunga, Ecuador, gives the story of the eruption of the volcano of Cotopaxi, which took place July 2o. streams of water poured from all the craters at once on the Clava side, sweeping away everything in their course. Another irresistible torrent followed the course of the Soguirmal river. i he Hacienda or feignor Uonoza is in rums She very soil has gone off the place of Signor Larrea and nothing is left. The torrent car ried off 500 head of cattle at pasture in the field. The Alagues river overflowed, and caused great damage. The Cutchico over flowed, carrying everything before it. A splendid machine shop went down like a card house at the first rush of the waters, as did various mills. The entire district is iike a sea. and the inundation would have destroyed the citv had not the course of the flood been time ly diverted into the river channels. The total loss of life will reach if not exceed 1,000 persons. At least two thousand head of cattle bave been destroyed, and of smaller animals the loss is much greater. In the midst of the roar of waters and crushing of houses the volcano poured out an immense quantity of cinders, which gradually darkened the whole face of the heavens and left Lata cunga in the most profound obscurity from 1 o'clock in the afternoon until 10 o'clock at night. Burning of the Grand Prize Hoisting- Works. The shaft house of the Grand Prize hoisting-works, at Tuscarora was destroyed by fire on Sunday last, involving a loss of $3,000. The Elko Independent describes the accident as follows : Assisted by a strong, but fortunate'y favor able wind, the flames spread through the dry lumber building with the rapidity of light ning, scarcely affording the employes time to escape. Une or the engineers was so closely pressed that he failed to secure a tme watch and S300 in gold netes in his vest hanging near him, and a workman upon some timbers sixty reet to the Jeaward of the budding, had'nt time to save the tools with which he was working, being forced to beat a hasty retreat. all available means to protect the surround ing property were used with a will, and most enectively, for notwithstandind the proximity of the new mill, shops, company s thee, stacks of wood and coal, etc. , etc. , nothing beyond the shaft house ahd a few timbers upon which the flames were directly driven, were destroyed. The steam pump in the shaft continued to work throughout, which furnishes strong grounds for the belief that the damage to the machinery generally, is comparatively light. The shaft is uninjured beyond a depth of five feet from the surface, and a gallows frame sheave even was unin jured by its fall; the reels and foundations appear to be uninjured, and it is thought that the damage to the machinery will prove very slight. The successful effort to save the water tanks situate only a few feet from the building, enabled the salvation of the shaft. The total loss will not probably exceed 3,000, and Mr. Nally is sanguine that the works will again be hoisting ore inside of a week. We have the following account f an awful disaster at sea: London, September 12. Information of a terrible disaster in the English channel has just been received. The British ship Ava lanche, Captain Williams, from London, Sep tember 4, for New Zealand, came in collision with the British ship Forest, from New York, off Portland, and both vessels foundered. Ninety-six persons were drowneu. The For rest was in ballast, and had a crew numbering twenty-one. Captain Lockhart, the chief mate and seven others were saved. The Ava lanche had a crew of thirty-two and fifty passengers. The third officer and two seamen were saved. Following are additional particulars of the collision in the channel : The Ferrest struck the Avalanche between the main and mizzen masts, nearly cutting her in two. The latter sank immediately. The Forrest, though utterly wrecked, kept afloat for an hour or two. Three boats were launched from her, only one of which has yet been saved. It contained twe'.ve persons, already mentioned as saved. One boat was washed ashore and several bodies. The other boat it is fa red is lost. The Avalanche had sixty-three passen gers twenty-six sa'oon, seventeen second class and twenty third-class mostly colonists. Ihe disaster occurred at v.M last night, seven miles off Portland. Latest particulars snow that over 10U per sons were drowned in the disaster of the For rest off Portland. Miner's Employed at Eureka. -The Sen tinel gives the following account : The Eureka Consolidated mine and furnaces employ about 300 men, whose daily wages ag gregate the snug sum of $1,200: the Rich mond Company, loO men, 600; the Iv Iv Consolidated, 130 men, S520; the Jackson, 20 men 104; the Connolly, 20 men, 80; the Bald Eagle, 16 men, S04; the Hamburg, 70 men, fc4'0; Matamoras, 5U men, fclzU; lem- mon mill, 25 men 100; and small outside mines in the neighborhood of 100 men, 400. It will be seen by the above that there ars about 800 miners and furnacemen now at work in this district, the daily wages amount ing to about 3,500, or 105,000 turned loose at the monthly pay days. Add to this the sums disbursed for coal and other supplies and it will be seen that considerable coin finds its way into circulation in Eureka. It is probable that during the month at least 150 more miners will be put upon the rolls, which will proportionately increase the grand total.

DEALER IX Groceries, Eggt, Oranges, Lemons, Freak awl Dried Fruit, the An Indian Killed. -The Pioche Record of last Saturday has the following : J. D. Davis, of Paranagat Valley, arrived in Pioche on Sunday evenfng last. He reports the killing by the "McClane boys" of an Indian named Tem-Piute Jim. The circumstances of the case, as we learn them, are that Tern Piute Jim stole a gun from the cabin of the McClain boys, and when they found him on lnursday, Aujust rfOth, after some search, with the gun which he refused to give up, one of the McClains to frighten the Indian, fired at him, bnt this, instead of intimidating mm, made mm worse, as he immediately opened fire on them. At this one of the brothers jumped at the Indian with a knife and cut his throat, killing him. Immediately after the killing the McClanes delivered them selves up to the proper authorities at Hiko. Tem-Piute Jim is a brother of Tem-Piute Bill, who was hung at Hiko for murder about two years and a half ago. The Indians are much excited over the matter and threaten vengence. Apropos of the cases of Crozies and Rover, now under sentence of death, is the following from the Chicago Advance : Deacon Rathfel asked his family physician last week, "Doctor, you have had such an extended experience at deathbeds, and have seen so many people go hence, that I would like to ask you what class are most resigned, and die happiest?" The aged man cleared his throat and said: "Well, Deacon, I have not seen so very many deaths, but, so far as I have been able to learn, the people who die the happiest are those who are hanged." County Clerk Comstock of Washoe is cred ited by the Gazette with the following neat epigram: I often bave wondered and wondercf, But the reason I never could espy, Why land suits always ware groundlMs And water volt always, ware dry. Dressed Beef for Chicago. Savs Silver State of Monday: Some of the prominent cattle men of this vicinity have made arrangements for tryina the experiment of shipping dressed meats to Chicago from this station. A Central Pacific refrigerator car has arrived here, and it is to I be loaded with about 20,000 pounds of prime beef. The car is so arranged that thirty or j more carcasses can be hung up, as in a sham bles, and kept at a few degrees above freezing point while being taken to its destination. Should this experiment prove successful, and its success depends upon the price that can be obtained for the meat in Eastern markets, it will be carried on on a large scale this fall and winter. Failure of Frank Leslie. New York, September 8th. An assignment of Frank Leslie, newspaper publisher, to Isaac W. England, was in the office of the County Clerk to-day. The Sun says the liabilities are fcoi0,000. the assetts are represented by numerous publications, his large printing and engraving establishment, with its presses, machinery and fixtures, and a considerable establishment at Interlake, near Saratoga- Mr. Leslie's embarrassments arise in good part from too extended investments in real estate. An arrangement has been made whereby the publication will be continued. Professor W. F. Stewart passed here last evening westward bound. He is preparing to leave for Guatamala, Central America, to ex amine the gold fields of that State for a com pany of capitalists and intends to spend the Winter m that region. He swears by Tusca rora, and considers it one ot the best districts in the State outside of the Comstock.
