Till RSDAY. ..OCTOBER 18. 1877 WHAT WE II AVE BEEN SAY. TRYING TO The Morning Atpeal has been subjected to some criticism for its course toward Pres ident Hayes and his policy. Somehow, in our desire to express the objections that are in us we have fallen short of what we wanted to express. We guess we have been too "mad" to be clear. But we have found something which does express wflat we feel. Strangely enough it is in tlitf Danbury News. It is from the pen of Goldsmith, of the New York Herald who corresponds with the News. Here it is : " For a moment, on my own re sponsibility, without any other backing by the Danbury News than the editor's compli ment in printing what I write, let me say this: That when Mr. Hayes became President of the United States he was made such by the Republican party, which took a great deal of trouble, and which acquired great odium therefor. Mr. Hayes was not popularly elected. lie was a made President; a cooper-ed-up affair. In his individuality he had a right to rise above all mean and corrupt con siderations. But Mr. Hayes immediately disregarded everything that Grant has done ; ungenerously snubbed lie leader of the Re publican' part', and every lieutenant of that body, thus giving forth to the world the im pression that he, finding no good in that lead er and those lieutenants considered tliem bad Thus Mr. Hayes began the fight, and no one of tho ansels, Curtis, Bowles, Nordhoff, has said one word for the old regime. The senti ment of men who had fought in the old days ' when romance and enthusiasm made glory for the party was brought down to the rule of three. To be sure England glorified Grant; but Hayes dropped him like a hot potato. Ana any man who remembered Orant was spoken to insultingly, and village school-boys from Ohio were placed in a position of trust, not because they were known to be any better than the followers of Grant, but because they were namby-pamby and new. Mr. Hayes began to fight by turning a New Yorker out of the New York custom house and putting an Ohio man in. He turned a man out of the Chicago custom-house and put an Ohio man in. He sent his local edi tor, Comly, to the Sandwich Islands, and his nominator, Noyes, to France. He decimated Ohio in order to find lisping mannikins to fill offices in the name of Civil-Service Reform. In every way he disregarded every appoint ment that had been made by General Grant. Thus he insulted the great soldier and he disgusted the old enthusiasts of the Repub lican party. He cooed over the rebel 3-ell, and he had never a word of compliment to pay to the men who sat down and dug trenches at Yicksburg. He spent his time in making insipid speeches in which he daily told the people the condition of the President's liver, the condition of the Postmaster-General's kid neys, the condition of Mrs. Hayes' peripa tetic spine. He sucked his booby thumbs in sight of school-girls in pinafores, and made a sugar-teat of his Presidential position. Mind, I am not criticising any policy of de cency towards the South. I have lived there and known its people, and I like them. Mr. Hayes policy is not new. It is the puerile manner in which he puts it to which I object. He could have satisfied the material prosper ity of the South without insulting Grant in the North. If he could not, then the South ought not to be satisfied. It is because Hayes is intellectually small that I object to his arrogance. As the old gentlemen said "I dont object to being run over; but the idea of being run over by a pedler. " HARLAN NOMINATED TO PREME BENCH THE SU- The dispatches state that General Harlan of Kentucky has been nominated to the Supreme Bench by the resignation of Mr. Justice Davis. Harlan is a man of very large physical pro portions a big rawboned Kentuckian, in fact. He was Bristow's special, friend and fugleman at Cincinnati. But we are never, not even in this instance, to have our pleasure wholly unmixed with pain. The following heart rending story reaches us: Chicago, October 17. A Times Washington special says that a warm friend of Bristow's says that Harlan's appointment as Supreme Judge would be a disgraceful one, as it would be the result of lying, intrigue and the dis honest betrayal of a friend who has never been aught but the kindest man to General Harlan. The correspondent then says that Harlan has given the President to understand through friends, that Bristow would not ac cept the position himself, but personally de sired Harlan's appointment. By these repre sentations Bristow has been grossly betrayed, but has been prevented by pride from unveil ing Harlan's duplicity. Poor Bristow! By and by he will know how it is himself. TOPIER DISCHARGED. By Monday's Reveille we are informed as follows: The examination of Topier for the killing of R. C Allen was concluded last Sat urday night about 8 o'clock and resulted in the discharge of the prisoner, the evidence all establishing conclusively that he acted in self-defense. The evening session of the Court was held in the District Court-room, in order to accommodate the large crowd of spectators, and the announcement of the decision discharging Topier was received with applause. We have never known of a case in which one man killed another wjiere public sentiment was so unanimous in favor of the accused and so strongly against the man killed as in this. Allen's death is a cause of public rejoicing, and there cannot be found in Lander county one human being who re grets his death. It is a terrible thing and may seem cruel to rejoice in the death of a fellow creature, but when a man transforms himself into a wild beast and makes himself a a terror to ms neighbors he is not ht to Jive, and his death' is looked upon as a blessing, tfie same as if a mad dog or a rattlesnake or any other creature that preys on human life had been killed. As showing the feeling in regard to Allen in the locality where he resided, we are told by a gentleman who was a witness m the case and who resides in Smith Creek valley, that when the Indians held a fandango, to rejoice over Allen's death the white women said they felt as if they would like to join in the dance. It must be a uau and dangerous man over whose death women rejoice and children clap their hands, as we are intormed was the case in this instance. Hoisting Works Burned. The Belmont Courier has the following account of the burn ing of the hoisting works of the Eldorado South: This morning at 1 o'clock the hoist ing works of the Eldorado South mine took fire from the bursting of a coal oil lamp and burned to the around in fifteen minutes. We learn from the Superintendent that the en gines are but slightly damaged. The fire ex tended down the shaft only five sets of tim bers. The Company's mill only 100 yards distant caught on fire several times but was extinguished without any damage. About 100 cords of wood were also burned. Work men are clearing away the derbris ready for repairs, etc. , and we are assured that the works will be rebuilt and hoisting will be re sumed inside of ten days. The sentence of Joe Coburn to ten years in the State Prison of New York has been af firmed by the Court of Appeals. Joe shot at . a policeman one night last February. He can be spared.

Of a valiant horsemen who defended him self and his personal effects from some foot pads the Eureka Sentinel of October 16 says a Deiatea norseman, tvno naa passed a pleasant evening visiting some lady friends on Ruby Hill, and was quietly wending his way Eurekaward, cogitating on his delight ful visit and wishing Sunday evenings would occnr more frequently, was aroused from his meditations as he reached the canyon at the base of Cariboo Hill by a sharp demand to halt. He glanced into the gloom and espied two men on either side of the road, and both reiterated the request in the sharpest of tones. Our traveler had by this time managed to draw his pistol, and without waiting for any further commands he shot at the man nearest to him. The report scared his horse and the animal ran away down the road, the highwaymen fir ing four times at him before he got out of range. One of the pistol balls gave him a pretty close call, cutting through his coat and grazing his arm, but the balance flew wide of the mark. Theron says that Sunday evening courting is very nice, but he don't want any more road incidents of the above character to wind up the visit. What the Islands of the Sea are doinsr for themselves down in the pleasant waters of the warm Pacific, the San Francisco Post of Mon day tells us as follows : "Captain Hall, of the bark Coloma, which arrived from Baker's Is land, one of the Guano group, yesterday, thirty-three days out, reports that the buoys at the island sank on June 4th, and have not been seen since. After being about lands for twenty-seven days, Captain nail concluded to come to this port. He also re ports a strong current setting to the eastward, where it formerly set westward. Baker's Is land had been visited with heavy rains and had been completely flooded. The once bar ren island is now covered with vegetation. Some pumpkin seed that were scattered in different parts of the island had taken root and grown to large vines, bearing pumpkins. Other parts of the island were covered with grass, and in some places the shrubbery had grown to a hight of tliree or four feet. Here tofore the water on the island was- only ob tained by condensing, and now thero is an abundance of it. The island is almost alive with rats, who were very much surprised at the appearance of vegetation, but it did not take them long to get acquainted with the pumpkins, and they at last accounts were en joying them as food." to This is a rare chance for the ladies to buy Cloaks and 1-urs tor less than their real value.

Carson, October 13, 1877. Jolra Morrissey has lately been sick with omethin2 very like acute bronchitis. He was very much in danger at one time. As showing the esteem in which he is held in certain quarters, it is mentioned that Thurlow Weed was among the visitors to his sick room. Editor Pratt .of the Carson Valley News is the "crackest shot of the whole team of pigeon killers at the State Fair. A long, single-bar-rell man like Pratt oftentimes exhibits a sur prising steadiness of reach in directions least " thought of. 1 We are free to confess that we are not reckoned among the admirers of Fremont. Somehow he always seems to be masquerading in whatever place he is found. But he has been a busy man in his day, an adventurous explorer and an active participant in large and showy enterprises. We are sorry to hear of snch a man coming to experience the pres sure and worriments of poverty in his old age for Fremont must by this time be quite an old man. Lately hi3 library and pictures were sold at public auction. The bidding was brisk, although on a small scale, and com parativ'ely large prices were paid for works of no great merit, while standards sold low. Eight volumes of John Adams's work, anno tated by Charles Francis Adams, brought forty cents each; four volumes of Macaulay's England, eighty-five cents cents; three vol umes "History of Royal Residences," with one hundred colored engravings, facsimile of original drawings by well known artists, SG.25 each: Stephens's "Northern Runic Monuments of Scandinayla and England," 5.25 for each of the two volumes. Among the glassware to be said are pieces with the family initials engraved thereon. Three por traits, two in oil, of the General grace the art collection. It ia said the sale is by Sheriff's order.
