Also it means prosperity to the farmers of California: miles of nodding wheat aiid barns bursting with the magnificent harvest. While we write, the blast shouts hoarsely as it comes madly down through the gorges of the storm crowned Sierra; and we know by its voice that "The tierce artificer" is at work building his bastions there where they will stand for the scarp and glacis of the woodman's defense against the dangers of idle ness, want and demoralization. Ye know as we see the (lakes driven before the shrieking tempest that the wood-Humes and the quartz mills, the wood-drivers and all the industries which depend upon a common store of moun tain snow, are receiving, every minute, a fresh assurance of a successful year. And so we are conscious of going no step beyond the lim its of a discriminate enthusiasm when we al lude to this timely storm as "The splendid blessing of the snow."

C, under date of the 30th ultimo, we find that the President has appointed a number of scientific and non-scientific gentlemen as com missioners to test the gold and silver coinage of the United States for 1877. This commis sion is to assemble at the Philadelphia Mint on the l.'Jtli instant. The fact is not univer sally known, but a similar commission is an nually appointed for that purpose, and the Mint at Philadelphia is designated by law as the rendezvous. The manner of testing the Mint coinage is not generally understood, therefore, we will briefly state how the savants conduct the business. The Coinage Act of 17.'! reijuires the -riiiperiutendent and assayer of each Mint to indiscriminately select from each delivery of coin made by the coiner to tln Superintendent one coin out if every iy )'.) pieces of silver, and one coin out of every 1,00:) pieces of gold. The coins thus selected are placed it. to small envelopes, sealed, and deposited in a pyx, to which two locks are attached, the Superintendent being the custodian of one key and the Assayer of the other. At the end of each .planer the pyx is opened by the above named officers, ami the coins in the origin;;! sealed packages, are taken out and i;tc" 1 into a wooden box, which is securely fastened and saleil and transmitted bv mail to the Superintendent of the Mint at Phi , i i.i i'Ie;ih:a w ) i-et.i!IH coins. Witllo.K Oi'ei:-. thi original seals, until the meeting of the a assav commission. I pott the laeetsn organisation ot t.aat eo .nmisston tne packages i nns lO'J ether with the reports ot rhi :r ! tran unison in from whatever M:'!t. ate dehv- , ercl to the Chairman of that b -ly. '1'he com- ! missioii is then divided into committees br t'ne oliject of counting the coins to determine ! w hetlie'-their numher and .u::e corrc-p 'r.d j witii t!:.t letters advising their shipment and i to exam ne tiieir nK'reuantaoie c-'11i";mii. After this eaeh coin is separately wu'ghed, and if their weight is within the limit pre scribed by law, then they .are weighed in bulk. When this process is concluded, the coins are assayed piece by piece, to ascertain whether tht-y aro of t!to t'.tietiess roii!att;-.l by the Coinat? Aot. If tlu'so tests ; i rove sat is- fai'tory, which thov invaritihly I), theti j 'olil ami silvi-r coins are thrown into separate crucibles, melted, and another test assay is made of them in bulk. From these tests ami examinations the report of the committee is made U. The coins must all be of the I'nited States standard. Should a single coin be found wanting in weight or fineness, the entire years' coinage of the Mint from which it is issued would be condemned and the outstanding coins called in for redemp tion. Hut this has never, nor is it likely to occur, because the several Mints make monthly test assays of each others issue, and in no case would it be necessary to condemn more than a sinide month's coinage. EXTENDING THE OLD CARSON THEATElt. Some well timed rejiairs are making on and about the stage of the Carson Theater. This, in anticipation of the coming hither of Piper's opera troupe next week. He are glad to learn that Messrs. Moore and Parker have in contemplation some much needed and very radical reforms. This involves the extension of the present building back to th" n vt street west of Carson, a commodious ladies entrance and an increase of the stage and green room capacities, lhese improvements are exactly in the line of what is wanted and we certaiiilj' hope they may be consummated. From thr Oi.n Times. Our ancient frien-t John Brophy, who dates back to the old ' Southern and Western," afterwards Mir ay's Western House, in Marysville, has ben. in the city for a day or two. Says Diiily (who is of the salt of the earth,) has struck it in Padie. (rood ' Accompanying John i his friend Judd, a Comstock engineer (hoist- in nr works man), who comes to Carson to take j a day's recreation and enjoy the pleasures of : our salubrious climate. A trifle frosty aboti the pow like the late lamented Mr. Ander son of the Jo John family, is Mister Urophy But sound for many a hundred year, and w- i ire glad of it. The snow cr ank. A young gentleman wh- has been sufficiently indisposed of late to mak it prudent that he remain away for a bru i space from the Kindergarten, standing by ; window looking out upon the fast-deseentiim: snow flakes informed his inquiring sister th;r (Jod didn't cure much about making it snow in the nim ning, but that "biuteby whi n he turns that ciank of his up rhe'-e in the sky. . he will make the snow count down fastes'n you can run.'" There is a good deal woi s j philosophising than that on and about tb ragged cages or tins oia biaggard world or our: . Death ok an Old Sktti.er. Wc are in debted to Doc.

He was widely re spected avl will.be as widely mourned. r-This is the first day of the ment t in which the ladies talk the least. A JOLLY SLEIGH RIDE. There are two or three in sparables to en iovment in a sure-enoutrh sleitrh ride, "i ou j- must either have a turn-over a capsize in a snow drift or a jolly drag through the mud. Either a real, unmistakable ride over the crisp snow, or as ridiculous an imitation of a sleigh ride as mud and slush can make it. NoLk dy appreciates these facts better than our 1 riend Pantlind of the Ormsby House. A rare Lking for the excitements of healthful enter' irises has he. He is keen enough to Jip-preci- te the debatable ground between an im pend ng thaw and a fairly available fall of snow. That's how it happened that he got cut. Benton's sleigh stage yesterday and with Hank Monk for driver, went down to the sec ond ward school house, invited the children there to take a ride and treated them to the ' ,ncn.;est sleighing ever was enjoyed this side the Arctic Zone. We iike this thoughtful good heartedness. More of it wouldn't hurt , hurt! It would set man- a hopeful little heart to heating and leaping with the full measure of delight, born of hearty anticipation and childish zest. As to these school children, th'-y look on " Pant" as a sort of bachelorie eo npromiso between Santa Clans and Sir Ji'hn ''Yank lin. Contemplating his benevo lent head, we heard one little girl ask another if that wasn't "the North I'ol-i" Well! May he keen on sleighing to his heart s content. Sk tou VoMi. ii i, i.s" Si'Ki.i ii.
