THURSDAY NOVEMBER 15. 1?7 BUTTS FOR EVER. Our notice of Doc. Butts yesterday has created some comments on the street, and we do not propose to go back on anything we havs said. We are agitators and we propose to agitate. We know what Butts has done, how well he has performed his work, and while we care no more for Butts personally, than for any other man, we are positive that he has done good work and we want to see him kept in his present position. We are shooting tax payers talk now, under the deep and abiding and cinching pressure of one of Jimmy Fraser's tax receipts which we hold in our pocket. Butts is economical. He has been buying lumber at a lower rate than it can be elsewhere purchased, he has been careful and he has been saving money to the citizens. We dont know what kind of a com bination might be hitched up if a new man were put in. We are afraid of new ordinances on general principles, they look too much like a job; but we do not know this, that ucn officer fills the bill in every respect, and satisfies the public entirely, the putting of h'tn out and putting anybody eke, in the world in, is an outrage upon the community and a gross imposition upon the taxpayers, whether it is done by a Board of City Trustees, or a combination, or anything or anybody and it wont hold, and the people wont stand it and somebody wiU have to go slow. The Enterprise of yesterday says: Attorney General Kittrell was in the city yesterday, dignified and courteous, as ever. We have an enalted opinion as to the taste and perspicacity of the local of the Enterprise and we don't trrnk him girlty of any josh in the above. He is above it. Every one who knows the General knows the statement above is true to the letter. It is a niaiter of uni versal acceptation that the adjectives " dig irfied and courteous" are weak, when applied to him. He is that everywhere, and what we object to is that the Enterprise giveth our official no more extended notice. But that is the way with suburbin sheets. Now, ire know all about the matter; that Attorney General Kittrell was on State business and that he performed it to the complete and en-t:-e satisfaction of the State. We are ?n debtcd to him for the following succinct and correct statement a 3 to the Prison Suit : Yes terday at Virginia City, in the case of J. H. Adams et al. , vs. L. R. Bradley et al. , which involves the title to the State Prison, an agreed statement of facts was finally decided upon by the counsel for the respective parties thereto. On th's statement the case is to be submitted io Judge Lorenzo Sawyer for de cision. Virtually he has already given a de cision favorable to the State aad against the plaintius. Should he adhere to his former opinion in the case, an appeal to ihe Supremo Court of the United Siater will be inimedi atel taken by the plaintiffs, and then we may expect our S'a'e Prison convicLs, War den, etc. , hung up in Washington until the enstr'ng centennial. The Theater is desolate. No playwrights delight the expectant audience, and ;he foot lights are out. We interviewed that most ac commodating seat blotter, Charley Parker yesterday, and he looked completely discon solate. We told him we would get up a regular monthly tbatiter schedule, but it did not seem to calm his troubled spiril;. Pa.'ience, patrons, we will have good shows ere long. On the 23d the Au Faits will give their grand opening party, which wi'l be recherche and lip to the Nth power in the party line. On the 27th and 28 h the renowned Emmet the " great, celebrated and perfect Dutch comique will appear in one of his unapproachable enter tainments, The hall is for rent on Thanks giving n;ght. Some society give us a ball. Fol'elh of Jl'iy. Buck Davis has meta morphosed himself into a heavy mining sharp and bloated superintendent. He brought down ten men from the Lake who were joined by five more from Viryniaj all of whom he carried off to Eurek. io work the Fourth July nr'ne. The m:ne h well known here, its principrl owners being residents of Carson. The men are to work on shares and obtain an interest in the mine. We trust they may be able Jo strike it rich and that Buck may make a bij r-ise. The mine is situated in Goodwin Canyon, abont toMv and a Ijalf miles from the town of 'Eureka, and has always been con sidered a good mine. The Fire J3oys met night before last and made a division of the gifts of Yerington, Bliss & Co, The Currys placed 8100 in the treasury and divided the remainder among those who served at the fire. The Swifts placed 200 in their treasury and divided the remaining $300 among the twenty-two men who were detailed on the engine. We under stand there has been some growling among the boys, but the . division was made by a majority vote and the responsibility rests with them. At all events, the boys have bean well paid for their services by the losers by the fire. The County received several cords of wopd yesterday, and the prisoners were busily en gaged in carrying it in. Professor John Sharp weakened on the general principle of manual labor and was consigned to a cell. The rest stood in and the wood was packed in. LETTER FROM WrOODFORDS. Wooifords, Nov. 12, 1877. Editcr Morning Appeal: Thinking many of your readers would like to hear how the late storm treated us I send you a few lines relating to the same, The wind blew very hard on the night of the 10th, and it commen ced raining about 4 'clock in the morning but at 10 a. m. it turned to snowing, (that was in Hope Valley. ) I left there at 2 p. m. and the snow was then 15 inches deep, and it continued to snow all day and night and until 3 p. m. to-day, when it partially cleared oft'. am here at Woodford's now, but judging by my former experience in the mountains and at Woodford's. I think there must be 4 feet of snow in Hope Valley, and perhaps 5 on the summit. ' It fell 10 inches deep here but will be all cone in a day or two. This storm set o - in on the same date of the first heavy snow storm of the Fall of '61, if you remember; I presume many of your readers will. I was living at Hermit Valley at that time and never will forget it. My hermit life of that winter gave to that Valley its name. The snow fell 22 feet on a level. It commenced snowing on the morning cf the 11th and at midnight when it cleared away 2 feet, clear, had fallen. On the 12th it commenced snow ing at midnight and continued for five days, during which time 9 feet fell. I am not prophesying that kind of a Winter but I think we are going to have plenty of snow. I hear this evening that 2 feet fell at Silver Moun tain. We are all praying for a bountiful sup ply of snow this Winter and I think we will get it. I shall make it my home most of the time in the summit ranges and Hope Valley, and will keep you posted on the weather and the news. Times are very dull here now ; no money is the cry. Yours, Mountaineer. LINES CONCERNING BUTTS. RESOLUTIONS OF THANKS. Rooms of Curry Engine Co., Tuesday, Nov. 13, 1877. At a meeting of Curry Engine Company No. 2, held this 13th day of November, A.

To inspect every t lley ?nd street Doc liuKs, the old chief, can't be beat. He the gutters keeps clean, And he never plays mean, Is the verdict of a'l whom we meet. His economy no one can doubt ; He is active and always about. The Board of Trustees Can do as hey please, But the taxpayers don't want him out. Hogs. The regular invoice of choice, fat, lusty, porkines arrived yesterday from below. Gaildmacher, the introducer in that important department, brought in two car loads of these gentle creatures. One-half were for the Cau casian butchers, and will from them reach the general reader. The balance were disposed of to the Mongolian portion of the community, and will find rest in Chinatown. At latest vices he had disposed of all but six of his stock. On the train for Virginia yesterday, we noticed Steve Gage of the Central Pacific R. R. Co., and the genial Hon. Jasper Babcock, of the lower branch of the Nevada Legisla ture. Jasper looked calm and self-possessed, as is his wont. Both were for the Comstock journeying. Mr. Fulton and wife were also on the train. He went on to Virginia and Mrs. F, who has a host of friends here i3 a guest of her sister Mrs. James H. Dealy. Episcopal Social. Th-'s popular little arrangement which everybody attends, is to be held at Major Gardner's residence on Fri day evening next. The Major has chartered Benton's bu3 and guests will be carried free. Send your orders to Benton's stable and the bus will call for you. We noticed an improvement in the general appearance of things at the lower sohool house as we passed the other day. Delicate green curtains have been hung at the several win dows. This is better than blue glass. Green is soothing to the youthful eye.
