SUNDAY NOVEMBER 25, 1877 Tab Case op Jitdge EL O. Beattt. We learn from Mr. O. P. Willis that the nature of the very serious malady at present afflicting his father-in-law, Judge O. H. Beatty, is that of a congestive chill. He went to San Francisco a few days ago and there caught a severe cold. He had a chill while in that city, but managed to get home. Since his return' to Sacramento he has had another chill, and now he lies quite insensible, or delirious, and showing symptoms of great prostration of the nervous system. No tid ings being received by telegraph from the Judge, yesterday, it is taken for granted that at all events he is no worse. Judge Beatty is 63 years of age and a man of wonderful energy and great recuperative powers; but we fear he has overtaxed his rare capacity for work. -Indeed, so absorbed has the Judge been for many months in the Sacramento smelting works, of which he is chief manager, that he has forgotten hi3 years and growing infirmities, and overworked himself most mercilessly. We hope for the best; for there is no man on the Pacific Coast the superior of Judge Beatty in all the better qualities of a good and useful citizen. New Brand. A new brand of segars has been placed upon the market which we know to be the true racket. We tried one yester day and it burned to the stub in good shape. That new article is manufactured by Lewis Brothers of San Francisco especially and par ticularly for Carson use. The name thereof, aa per boxes branded, is "Pant's choice. He of the Ormsberry who is thus nicknamed. But he chose them and they are good. He received a thousand yesterday, which are for sale at his bar and are choice. Warranted Havana. A wretched, miserable Hebrew looked at the stock last night and told us the brand was a Hebrew one and ought to be read backwards, that is, " Choice Pants,". but that is a misnomer. We beg to correct the far-fetched rendering- and assure our readers that such an interpretation is far from Mr. P.'s thoughts. Nothing in refer ence to his pants is intended. The cigars are the correct thing. Ormsby County Taxes. We bethought ourselves last evening to ask Mr. Treasurer Fraser how he was getting along with the tax collecting. We ascertained these facts, namely : The sum total of taxes due under the revised assessment roll as it came from the Board of Equalization, is 638,350. Of this amount the Assessor collected nearly eight thousand dollars. This left about eighty thousand for the Treasurer to gather in. Of this amount he has collected, in round num bers verv nearly S7o, UUU. lhis leaves a present delinquency of something like $5,000. Not any county in the State does better than this. Times are not so outrageously hard when the taxes are so closely - collected as this indicates. FISH. Through the courtesy of a handsome gen tleman over at the capitol we are enabled to give our. readers the full report of the Hon H. G. Parker, the indefatigable Fish Com missioner. People who are not informed about the lakes and streams of the State may think this fishy for a dry community, but the real fact of the matter is that Hub has done very efficient service in this department, and the importation of fish and their propagation in the few waters that we have is a most im portant industry and one by every means to ho PTif!riiraTea. It is not a hobby : it is a business. The following is j j the Report : , Carson City, Nevada, Nov. 15, 1877. To His Excellency, L. R Bradley, Governor of the State of Nevada : Sir In accordance with the requirements of Section Seven of an Act of the Legislature of the State of Nevada entitled " An Act to nrnvide for the preservation of tish in the waters of this State," apDroved March 5, 1877, I have the honor to herewith present mv report. In accepting the appointment or i ish uom- missioner 1 round myseir wnouy inexperi enced in this business and hence study and correspondence with fish commissioners in other states seemed requisite before an intel ligent expenditure of money on my part could be made. After corresponding with Professor Spen cer X. Uaird, United atate3 maa oonimis sioner at Washington, D. C. , and with Hon B. B. Redding of the California Fish Com mission 1 examined tne various laices ana streams in the western part of this state and found them adapted to the growth of good fish. When I received the Commission the sea son was too far advanced to commence a "fish breeding," but I have made arrangements to stock a small breeding place this winter ; have also arranged for the procurement of ova ot the California salmon and Eastern brook trout, as well as the spawn of other kinds, and this I find I can do at a very small out- lav. Upon the recommendation or the uainor nia Fish Commission I have stocked Washoe lake which was entirely destitute of food fish, with the fish known in California as the Schuylkill river cat fish," which I procured . 1 1 e M ' x in acramento at tne iouowing expense, to wit : R. R. fare from Truckee to Sacramento, $10 ; horse hire at Sacramento, 3 ; hand bellows. S2 50 : hose.- 82 : ice. S2 ; team from Franktown to Washoe Lake, S2 50 paid for catching fish at Sacramento, 40, Total. S62. The above is the total amount expended out of the appropriation to carry out the spirit of said Act. 1 have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant. H. G. Parker, tush (Jommissioner, state ot Nevada. Since the receipt of the above we learn that an invoice of perch has been received and placed in a stream near the city and that Commissioner Parker has received a letter from Hon. Spencer Baird, the U. S. Fish Commissioner, informing him of the ship ment of white fish from Lake Michigan. It is intended to place them in Washoe Lake, Our Fish interests are looking up. "DEBASING THE CURRENCY. Civil Service Reform. Doc Pierce left yesterday with hi3 household gods and goods for Candelara where he manipulates the U. S. mail and sits on a three-legged stool as the "frightful example" of civil service re form. He has in his pocket a letter from Counsellor Wren stating that his recommen dation is endorsed, and a big official letter from the Department informing him his com mission will be forwarded in a few dys and that he " is expected to support the adminis tration" Oh shade of Nasby ! The Cande lara office is worth 12 per annum currency. Who wouldn't be an office holder under Hayes ? Steve Gage, the great American wandering Jew. arrived in the city by the afternoon train from Virginia yesterday. He has been to the Great East; has done that enterprising burcr Eureka, and reports things lively. All the farming and agricultural persons generaly interested on the line of the E. & P. and C. P. railroads express themselves in favor of the land issue, advocated in the Morning Ap peal a short time since. There is no doubt whatever as to the wisdom of the proposed course cencerning the matter of Government lands. Steve left last night by the passenger train for the bay. Pkof, Gunning. Through a private letter from Professor Gunning, who is now at San Jose, Cal. , where he has gone on the advice of his physicians, we learn that hs is rapidly recovering and soon expects to return to Vir ginia and Carson to complete his course of lectures, which were cut short by his sudden illness. We were informed yesterday by an expert that there were evidence of a rich strike on the level of the incline on the Ophir. The level of the incline is good. That is probably why so many holders got out yesterday. He also said something about perpendicular drifts but it was too late. Ophir is down. A Rich Sunday Dinner. The attention of those readers of the Morning Appeal who like good cookery and an abundance of the good things it produces are directed to the advertisement of the bill of fare for to-day's dinner at the old Frisbie Restaurant. St. Peter's Church (Episcopal). Services at 11 o'clock in the morning and at 7:30 in the evening. Sunday school immediately after morning service. a. u. r oote, itector. Bullion Wells, Fargo & Co. received per southern stage two bars of bullion valued at 1,554 47. Light load of passengers and limited load of freight. Services in the Presbyterian Church to-day at 11 a. M. and 7 P. M. Dr. Thompson will preach in the evening. Sabbath school at 12:15. All are invited. Editors Appeal : Under the above cap tion the last number of Harper's Weekly launches a philippic against the passage of any Silver Bill, as paving the way for final repudiation. Now as the defenders of the double standard contemplate no debasement of the coin of the Republic, but the opposite, a purer and higher standard, we think a journal of the Weekly's circulation and influ ence, degrades its dignity by begging the question. It states that New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, made a stand off on the question; that Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minne sota, Oregon, Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada, Virginia, the Carolinas, Alabama, Misssissippi and Arkansas voted solidly for the remoneti- zation of silver, and the double standard, with a greatly preponderating vote in its favor, in Georgia, Texas, Missouri, Michigan and Cal ifornia, and that New England voted solidly against the bill. There are strong reasons why we do not wish to impeach the motives of New England. New England has been held as the leader of the war policy, and the results of the war, the debt at present being the most prominent. She may not wish to stain the record. But we think that her states men knew that there was an overwhelming majority in favor of the bill, and they could receive the benefit without a possible blame. It is supposed that Mr. Hayes will veto any silver bill not in accordance with his peculiar -w- J . 1 . 1 1 1 , . views, it he taices that course no does it to conciliate the Radical reserve, and to prevent the coalition against his policy which even he can see is a vital force. Uutside ot the for ests of Maine New England has long been as similating to the civilization of Western Eu rope. Every normal resource has long been developed, and she can do with the gold standard better than any other part of the Union. The great states of the Great Basin, and the states of this Western commonwealth have spoken. Are not the thousands of Americans among them as able to judge of the requirement as Mr. Hayes or the eleventh hour advisers who are around him Can he afford to do this after repudiating the policy of the party who nominated him from the social and political stand point? Can he af ford to stand on the financial text of the tradi tions of the party against the wishes and ex pected will of the "people" simply to regain his lost prestige in the vain endeavor to re concile the irreconciliable 1 Can he afford to constitute himself a hypercritical critic, on one point and ignore the rest ? The currency will not be debased, its intrinsic value will be greater than that of any other land, and there will be no room for Factors and Shylocks to keep capital from its legitimate field of busi ness, the development of new industries and the employment of the people, by speculating in the rise and fall of silver as merchandising. Does any man suppose that had Australia, New Zealand, British Columbia and other points of the British Possessions been silver bearing, that she would have demonetized silver? We think not, and as an American we submit that 'tis time we, as a nation exer cised some self assertion commensurate with our resources and our influence among the nations of the earth. W. K. Weare.

As proving the truth of the storie3 told in the book of Exodus, we are reminded as follows: Kentucky had a shower of edible meat, or minced frogs, not long ago; Tennessee pro duced a fall of live six-inch serpents; and now Canada has matched them both with a shower of fish, "fine, firm, and of the pickerel species," the shower extending about three quarters of a mile in Harwich township, and the fish being gathered in pails by those who cooked and ate them. W ere this the first week in April, we should suspect that these Canadian fish to be poissons d' Avril; but the story i3 told by several eve-witnesses who ought to be credible. Altogether, ancient history seems to be repeating itself with variations. As to the murrain of beasts and the army of locusts, those Egyptain plagues are only too well known to us. Caste in India. The missionaries of the Basel Society made a report as to caste in In dia which is not in accord with the accepted idea. They say that caste prejudice readily gives way before Clhrisuanizing influences, and natives of different castes intermarry now so generally that such a wedding excites but little comment. Two negroes convicted of murder at a pre vious term of the Chatham, Ga. , Court, but to whom new trials were granted by the Su preme Uourt, have been treed, tne yellow fever having killed off all the witnesses for the State.
