SATURDAY DECEJIBEP 1, 1877 THE FUNERAL OF THE F. RICE. LATE HENRY The Right Reverend Bishop Whittaker, as sisted by Rev. H. L. Foote, Rector of this Parish, conducted the funeral services yester iiay, over the mortal remains of our lamented fellow citizen, the late Henry F. Rice, Presi dent f the Town Council of Carson City. We have seldom seen so numerous an attend ance. Gentlemen and ladies from Storey Washoe and JJouglas counties came m very considerable numbers. About 2 o'clock, the coffin, preceded by the Bishop and Rector the former reciting the service for the dead, entered the south aisle of the church and pro ceeded to the chancel. The coffin was borne by pall bearers selected from the ranks of the attendant Masons, the deceased being of that order. The church was filled as was also the Sunday-schol room. Many, being unable to get even standing room in the church re mained in the yard. The choir was composed of three male voices, Messrs. Laughton, Ma son and Scoville. Miss Frances Hodgkinson presided at the organ. The services closed by singing the Hymn beginning with the words, "When I can read my title clear." This hymn was sung to the music composed by Professor Passmore for the funeral of the late Chas. JS. DeLong. 11ns dirge was sung with much solemnity of tone and effect. The altar was appropriately draped in black with immortelles of evergreen, and with flowers. In all respects the services were exceedingly impressive. Among the bodies of men in at tendance were thirty-eight employes of the Mint, including Superintendent Crawford and other officers. The Masons were largely rep resented. The cortege was very long and contained a great number of private and pub lic carriages. The Town Council was in at tendance, also the State officers and many members of the Bar of Ormsby and Storey counties. The attendance of ladies was very large. Many Pioneers were observable in the throng. At the grave the solemn ceremonies of the Episcopal church were observed. An3 thus is laid in the earth all that is perishable of a man whose character, whose work and whose sense of duty as a citizen and a public servant are fit subjects of emphatic approval and private emulation. Our dead neighbor deserves well of his remaining townsmen ; and the spot where he is laid should be marked for future honors. I ITEMS. Among the Renoites in the city yesterday was Mr. Ben Leete. Lathy and brittle as of yore, is Ben. Hons. B. C. Whitman and J. F. Lewis were in attendance upon the obsequies yesterday. If they would take the bell out of the belfry of St. Peters' and hang it on the fence fewer people would know that it is cracked.it might if good luck attended, be stolen, and it wouldn't thump the whole building like a catapult whenever it happened to be rung. Coat sleeves and skirts with Ormsby House paint on 'em justify the active market in ben zine. Cap'n Matthewson has got his game arm out of its sling and into his overcoat pocket. Judge Beatty's condition at last accounts, was still a critical one. That's a gorgeous boot blackery, is that brass mounted stand in the Hormsberry 'Ouse bar. The weather is too beautiful for any prac tical use. It acts as if it were afraid of get ting its feet wet. Mark Gaige has returned from Walker River. He looks like a Granger. The special train from Virginia City came down in one hour yesterday. His Honor, Mayor Belknap came down on it. He looks robustious, does the Mare. Hon. James W. Haynes of the Centennial Commission was in the city yesterday. His Honor, Judge Edson f the Genoa ju diciary visited Carson on Thanksgiving day. He says business is prosperous. There is a post under the north end of the Ormsby House balcony which leans as badly as the Tower of Pisa. As Felix McStagger said to his friend in the torch-light procession, "straighten up, McNamee, its not a hod ye have, it's a torch-light, be Jabers." Felix's advice to his fellow Paddy may furnish a hint to the post-man the condition of whose charge we have thus hinted at. PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. MASON & CO., PEATH OF PRESIDENT RICE. FIRE ALARM. Last evening between 8 and 9 o'clock the firemen were roused out by an alarm. Some emotional person went rushing across Capitol Square bawling out " Fire, firefire at the lower end of town!" Well, there was a bonfire in the street thereaway, but nothing more serious. The engines came out and the hose cart, and the street was very much alive. It only took a few minutes to show that there was n need of the engines : and so the hose carts were reeled home and the hand ma chines were speedily housed. The Swift stopped at the King street cistern and steamed up for about five minutes, and all was over. Boisterous. A man by the name of But cher entered a restaurant in the upper portion f the city, last evening, in a beastly state of intoxication and commenced knocking things around. Conductor Pierce, who was in the room, remonstrated with him, but being treat ed with violence, knocked the offender down and administered a couple of well directed kicks. The intoxicated man howled loudly and professed to be much iniured. Dr. Her- rick was called and found only a few bruises. The injuries are not of a serious nature. When he sobers up more definite information as to the extent of his punishment may be obtained- Passed Through. On Wednesday the Director's car of the Union Pacific Railroad reached Carson and laid over one day. It contained William Orton, President of the Western Union Telegraph Company, and lady, General Auston Stager, Superinten dant Western Division, and James Gamble, Superintendent of Pacific Division, all under the management and general engineering skill of the the lightning manipulator, Frank Bell of Reno, who is the chief boss and grand high muck a muck of telegraph wires and poles and things hereabout. The whole party went to Virginia to see the sights and mines and went back the same evening well pleased and comforted. Accident. Yesterday afternoon a boy, the f 1 IT T T T ' - 1 x son, we are inrormea oi iir. o. u. jaiigm, was run over by one of Duffy's drays. We could not learn whether the boy was on the dray or not, but certain it is, that some how or other the uray passeu over mm, irauiy bruising the right shoulder and breaking what is known as the shin bone. We forbear the general subject of medical terms. Dr. Luce was called in, set the misplaced member and the patient is doing well. Passengers. By the train last night the following pilgrims sought the sweet repose of the Bay : Mrs. D. A. Bender and daughter?. Messrs. Graffe and Stager of the Western Union Telegraph Co. F. M. Thayer, Super intendent of the Julia. Geo. Gillson of Gill son & Barber of ours, and Superintendent Gould of the North Carson, Ayers & Hopkins mines. The latter gentleman on business matters intent. Things are looking up. Bullion. Received yesterday by Wells, Fargo & Co. per southern stage, three bars from Northern Belle mine, valued at 4,741; and one bar from the Diana at $300; two bars from the Endowment at Marietta, val ued at 2,197. and four bars from the Co manche mine at Benton, valued at $4,092. This is the largest shipment received at this office for several days, and speaks well for the southern outlook. Charley Van Gorder. The following statement regarding the condition of Charley Van Gorder is from the Chronicle of last evening : Charley Van Gorder's best suit of clothes was sent t Sacramento by express last evening, in compliance with a dispatch received here about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, stating that he was not expected to live over night. State Bonds. Yesterday the Carson City Savings Bank received a telegram from a firm m JNew lork, inquiring at what price the State would dispose of $10,000 of the State bonds issued in 1871 and maturable in 1881. The State Treasurer was consulted and a dis patch forwarded making an offer at one hun dred and eight. Reply not as yet received. The Turner's Ball was a very great success, and it finished the exercises of Thanksgiving Day in fine style. The local attendance was very numerous, and there were many guests from Virginia City and other neighboring towns. The Emmett Troupe left Carson on Wedn esday morning for Virginia, where we see they are running a very succestful engage ment. The troupe is under the management of General Burton, formerly Colonel of the 48th new Sorts. At a special meeting of the Board f Trus tees of Carson, held on the 28th instant, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted : Whereas, We his official associates, are left to mourn the death of the President of this body, Hon. H. F. Rice, now be it Resolved, That the bereavement thus sustained is a public calamity such as befals a community whenever one of its most hon orable, trusted and useful members is taken away. We mourn the death of a man whose wisdom, honesty of purpose and executive capacity were for many years faithfully de voted to the private business with whose conduct he was intrusted ; of a man whose industry and sagacious management were in valuable aids in the formation of Ormsby county and the administration of its earlier affairs, of a man whose superior qualifica tions were made available in the construction and original organization of the United States Mint ' in this city ; and of one who, ever since the incorporation of our Town Govern ment, has been called, by the almost unani mous voice of his fellow citizens, to a mem bership of this Board. Resolved, That we offer our heartiest sympathy to the wife, son and relatives who by this mournful visitation are bereft of a kind and indulgent husband, father and friend. Resolved, That the members and officers of this Board attend the funeral in a body; that these Resolutions be spread upon the minutes ; and that a copy of the same be transmitted to the widow of our deceased as sociate. D. A. Bender, President pro tern. Attest : Alfred Helm, Clerk. Carson, Nev. , Nov. 23, 1877. "We Too." The Reveille asserts the fol lowing with a Sazaracker's effort at truth-telling: A Chinaman named Wee Too arrived from Battle Mountain on the stage this morn ing. It is related that when he booked his name at Battle Mountain for passage to Aus tin, walking up to the desk and saying "Wee Too," Alex. Robertson, the agent, looked up and asked: "Where's the other one?" The "other one" not being forthcoming, Alex, told Too to get aboard, but said it was not customary usually to carry Two for one fare, but he would make an exception in this in stance; though he expected Clugage would "kick" if he found it out.

The Piute chief, Winnemucca the big Injun passed through yesterday morning for Virginia, to consult with, well, anyone his majesty pleas eth, on the state and condition of the tribe, or any other subject. He was arrayed, as has been previously announced by the papers on the line of the C, P. B, R , in his full and complete uniform, presented by, we forget the donor, but he looked gorgeous and more like a comanding officer than Governor McClellan of New Jersey, whom we have gazed upon in full regimentals. He (Winnemucca not Mc Clellan), was attended by his staff, that is to say Natchez, and the entire force presented a stunning and martial appearance. Frank MgCuUough's wounded eye is get ting along bravely. Tto scar is hardly perceptible. Some shots fired in the direction of Me- der's mill last evening, about the time of the alarm of fire, helped along the excitement. If anybody was killed or wounded we have not found it out. Powning C. C, he of the Reno Journal, spent the day at the capitol yesterday. He shed the benign light of his side flippers upon us and we feel better. We are indebted to him for several and sundry items. On Thanksgiving day there was a plentiful supply of first-class, palateable, foaming egg- nogg at JHagees. It was manipulated by that erudite mixologist, Tommy. We are told it was way up. Mr. H. B. Loomis, long connected with the Enterprise, goes to Eureka to take charge of the Daily Republican.
