Al'out a week since a .strange lady arrived i.t this city, and rcisteroii at one of the ho tels. Her very gei.teel appearance attracted tha attention of all in whose socu'ty she wa, f-r the time being, thrown ; but her v-xy ret icent manner concerning where she came fi-nm, her object in coming and her destina tion was even more noticeable. On Sunday morning last she left her temporary place of abode, and engaged pas.' ige on the southern Rail has been receiving some new grind stones. We have caused him to be interro gated upon the subject of those useful arti cles with a view to ascertaining the part of the world where they are produced. The grindstone is not a growth ; it is a formation. Sometime it is found in Vermont by wrerch i;v from the lvwols of the Green Mountains the raw matt-rial from which it is fashioned. They do not come naturally by their holes. These are made. These holes are the nearest approach to a solution of the problem of squaring the circle that has ever been achieved. The Vermont grindstone, duly mounted upon a wooden frame and equipped with a crank, commands no little attention of the young men of that State. "I went down to Deacon Batturs," says Jacob Pike, "to spark Liddy.but Liddy had gone to a quiltin' bee, and the Deacon made me turn the grindstone. " Thus, we see, this implement is made to do duty a3 one of the fabrics of the domestic economy of the Vermont house hold. In Ohio, where all the Presidents and Generals and Secretaries of the Treasury and Chief Justices and Foreign Ministers are pro duced, they are now also producing grind stones. Kail showed us some Ohio grind stones yesterday. We suspect they are made of what, is called Dayton granite a sort of fine grained sandstone which b not granite at all any more than a slippery elm tree is an I Australian gur?. Tiie Ohio grindstone also has a square hole in it which is, thank good nosa, ono square thing from the Buckeye State. The present occupant of the White House is said to have taken inspiration from a turning and dripping grindstone when he undertook his last summer's perspiring swing around the circle with Mrs. Hayes, Burchard, Evarts and Lieutenant Colonel Key, C. S. A. They also make grindstones in Nova Scotia. We suspect that it was in that part of the glolnj where found its origin the expression of .holding one's (blue) "no.st- to the grindstone.' The Nova Scotiau article has a more cheesy appearance than the Vermont or Buckeye article ; but, as illustrating the deceitful character of appearances, is in no particular any more easily digested. As astronomers teach us concerning the starry worlds, there are other gtinds:ones than ours; but our space forbids a more extended essay upon this subject at tins time. Professor Rail will kindly enlarge .upon this subject, when in vited to do so. TUB PLAZA COTTOXWOOns. It will be observed that we have spoken of s:iid that benzine is greatly in favor as a means of killing them preparatory to their mounting. Advantages possessed by this substance over others are that it ia cheap and abundant, and that insects cured by its use are not liable to the ravages of other inse?ts their parasites. It was very breezy and very dusty yester day afternoon. The wind would have been more welcome but for a certain heated streak that seemed to run through the middle of it. LITTLE BY LITTLE. Quite an influx of those devoted women, the Sisters of Charity has been noticeable in Carson these, few days past. Some of the Sisterhood were in the city yesterday. Speaking of the Sisters reminds us that we have hoard that the present holders of the old Carson Race Course (the Catholic Church authorities) have abandoned their project of building a convent here, and contemplate the sale of the land. We hope this is not so. The cosiest and completest set of offices for the accommodation of a man of a medico chirurgical turn of mind and the convenience of his patients are those now fitted up and occupied by Dr. Fox in the old Sazarac building on Carson street, next below the Ormsby block, up stairs over George Fryer's 'down town" saloon. A strong genius for providing himself with the creature comforts is the worthy Doctor. JlJWe hear many complaints of neuralgia even in these warm days.

'.hen. til coach arrived at thatlpoint, the usual smvuI crowd was at the- station to see what passengers were aboard The idlers who saw the aforementioned gen 'eel lady alight had no idea that sha would give them food fr the choicest bit of scandal mongering which ever fell to the lot of the ultra respectable Genoese. The lady went t the hotel and was shown into the parlor of the house, which was at the time occupied by several other ladies. She immediately insti tuted inquiries respecting one R. 0. Guirado whet one of the ladies stepped up and said " I can give you all the information you wish respecting the gentleman; he is my husband.' The stranger looked perfectly terror-stricken at thi3 announcement, atd it was several mo ments ere she could gain sufficient presence of mind to reply, when she said: " You mut be mistaken, madam, tor he is my husband.' Thu naturally produced a very sentimental acene. as could be well expected. At length the two ladies decided to visit Guirado's place of business, ho keeping a drugstore in that town. Guirado's consternation at seeing his two wives enter his store at one time must have been perfectly agonizing. What passed there is only known to themselves However, s oii after this visit, the strange lady swore out a warrant for the arrest of Guirado on a charge of bigamy, and as he is unable to fur- mih bail, he is languishing in the Bastilo of i Jenoa. The accused denies ever having been married to the lady who claims to be his first wife, but docs not deny that lie had for a long while prior to his coming to this State lived with her upon terms of the greatest intimacy. The lady, on the contrary, refutes Guirado's -statements, and says that she was married to hiia somewhere in the southern part of Cali fornia, and to substantiate tlu-se facts she has telegraphed to Los Angeles to her brother, who lives there, to come to her and bring her marriage certificate and the affidavit of the Justice of the Peace who married them. This brother with her evidence are expected to arrivo here on the train this morninj, w hen the guilt or innocence of the accused wiH soon le established. Much sympathy is mandat ed for the strange lady at Genoa, who, strunge to relate, is temporarily residing with the mother of the accused's second wife, while the latter is living at a hotel. It will be re membered that this man Guirado married the laughter of the late Postmaster Davis of onoa, about a year ago, and the wedding was made very impressive by the bridegroom engaging in a shooting scrape with lawyer Tebbs, in which neither of the contestants were injured. Guirada is a brother-in-law of ex-Governor Downey of California, and at one time kept the drugstore now occupied by B. F. Foster in this city. Nothing doing in the Courts. The lawyers aro all melted down and the Judges are in a state of collapse. Capitol Square as ;the Piazi." We have done so with deliberation. There are times when the shorter Spanish word seems to com mend it s -If to one's pronunciation. This is one of the times. The Plaza, too, was the Plaz-i when those brave eottonwood trees which line, its western exposure were planted there. S i that they are of the Paza, Plaza fied. We have always stood by those trees. aud entered many an earnest protest against their contemplated felling. They are good enough trees for poor folk ; but we under stand that the Capitol Commissioners urge their destruction upon the plea that they sap the soil and shade the ground which would otherwise be appropriated to the growth of ornamental Bhrubs and flowers. They stand in the space next to the fence (which needs painting black) ; aud they do impoverish the soil. We do not like to be caught advocating the death of our old friends ; but it may be that their standing is a detriment to the plans of the Commissioners. We present their side of the case, but do not in any sense condemn the trees. By the way, speaking of Capitol Square, why ara not some convenient benches arranged here and thcro for the ac commodation of the people and the dear peo ple's sweethearts and wives, babies and nurse maids ! Let's be as civilized as po&sibla ! ALL SOKT.S. We confess to a watery tooth excited as we bring the peripatetic nose to bear upon the savory smells which exhalo from the cookery of Mitchell's inviting restaurant. There is an odor as of soup mingled with a pleasantly pungent odor of roasting and broiling meats whieh puts a sharp zest upon the otherwise dulled edge of one's appetite. A good place wherein to reanimate the inner man, that same eating house. We note that the front of the theater has been finally painted. The look is altogether commendable. Clem Berry's voice is preparing itself to do duty in the trumpeting of "Hot corn" and like midsummer luxuries. Clem's baritone, properly adjusted and controlled, might welt be utilized in a discreet, retail way for the venting of their stump speeches by the orators of the comiug political canvas3. We have never seen so many and such beautiful moths as are to be seen buzzing away their brief lives about the lamps which light ip these summer evenings. They are very large and very superb of plumage. Indeed, the " btigologist " who should make a careful and comprehensive collection of our Nevada insects would gather together a tnoHt mag nificent and valuable cabinet ; and the pres ent season seems to be peculiarly adapted to the making of such a collection. There is one large moth which makes his appearance quite frequently these nights, whose body is larger than any we ever noticed before. It is as thick as a man's little finger and nearly two inches in lenghth. The wings of this moth are very beautiful. To those who aro of a miud to collect insects for cabinets it may be j The fallowing account of the awarding of the prizes won at the target shooting of the Carson Guards was written for the Moknino Ari'KAL of yesterday, but the copy through inadvertance was mislaid. There was a social reunion at the armory of the Guards on Mon day evening, the occasion being the award of prizes won on Saturday last. The first bein the gold medal presented by the citizens of Carson, one year since, and won by private King; the other a beautiful leather medal, won by private Mills. Speeches wero made by Sargeant Moger and happily responded to by the recipients, after which the company was addressed by Messrs. Lentz, Bence and Burlingame. The company have arranged for a State International target shoot to take place at Carson during the fall. It is to be hoped that our citizens will encourage the same, by offering prizes. The meeting closed pleasantly, with the presentation of a keg of lager by the winner of the tint prizj, private King. THE NEW OPERA HOUSE. It being our desire to keep our readers well informed in regard to the progress which is being made in and about the new opera house, we visited that establishment yester day and found that the stage carpenters had commenced their work. The ceiling has one coat of plastering, and to-day the plasterers will commence on the side walls. Mr. T. F. Laycock, the scenic artist, assisted by Mr. Robert McGinley, will begin his labors to-day. Mr. J. T. Preddey, the efficient superinten dent during our visit, showed us tiie water color plans of the scenery intended for the theater, among which are a Turkish garden scene, Gothic chamber, wood scene, street scene, plain chamber, kitchen and prison scene, and a palace scene.
