rSIDAT NOVEJIBKB 13. 1S7S JONES' SPLENDID VICTORY. The people can always be depended on to i the right thing at the rujht time. Senator Jtne3' great and essential services in behalf of the leading industry of our State and to ward the whole people of the Republic hae received a just and hearty recognition. The victory achieved in his name is the most bril liant ever wrought in all the history of Sen atorial elections on this coast. It seems like one of those old-time self-assertions of the fxiople of Buch States as Maine, in favor of Fe3.senden, and Pennsylvania, in snpport of that grand old Richelieu of American politics, .-nmon Cameron. We congratulate the Sen ator upon the fulness of his triumph and point to the vote of Nevada in this regard with pride and self respect. The Rain which raineth every day rained yesterday. Not copiously did it rain diiring the daylight hours, but when the soft darkness of night had set gently in it began fall upon us who are just as woll as npon those of us who are unjust as is the way of the rain. Its coming "is not ungrateful, but mething welcome, rather. It was a mild, nodeat, valley-like rain ruaugre what was done, frost-wards on the hilltops, yonder. Thus doth the latening season assert itself in this moist and pluvial way. Here and there a man whose memory is built about with a Chinese Wall to the exclusion of the Tartar hordes of fresh fancies, carries an u-.ubrella. This absurd implement (possibly it is to be reckoned among the more ancient weapons if an halberd or a catapult is, like unto the .rrow self - protection which prompts its uagtj, of Mongolian, invention, and dates back to the first feeble ijunpowder and the original, south-pointing compass: Which ex planation, God wot, is enough for any self rjpecting Caucasian to make him never cease t deride the apish and nialverted plagiarist who would carry a contrivance of this disrep utable and diluvial character). Time w; when the man who should be c;ught with one these hybrid complications of whalehone and alpaeca (none but a very coxcomb carries silk umbrella), would have had it taken iay from him by the stout hand of the in- a-.gnant and horny-handed miner, thrust d-.wn his presumptive throat, and opened '.

Editor Appeal : The smoke of the contest has cleared away, and Austin sleeps as placidly in the bosom of Pony Canyon as though the roar of battle had never reverberated among the surrounding hills. The Democracy, which has won a local triumph, is as quiet as a sleeping babe in view of the defeat in the State and throughout the Union. They have won a local triumph, but they are not proud of even that ; and John Smyth, K. M. I. A. , who will face the legislative body next session, walks the streets as undisturbed by distinc tion as though he had never dreamed of an honor. There are still faint hopes that the District Jadgeship will fall to Anderson, but no one is willing to bet on his chances of wearing the ermine ; and Anderson is saying some naHghty things about his friends, though he made a run of which no man need feel ashamed. The newly elected District Attorney has ordered a half dozen of clean shirts. The Latin proverb has it : " Monachum non facit cucullus. " (Anglice, clean shirts do not make a District Attorney), and there are men in the party ready to bet that he never tries a case. Some of the boys won money on the result, and bled the sanguine Democrats pretty freely, who, predicting a grand triumph in the State upon Lauder County, put up their coin and lost it like men, and are chewing the cud of disappointment in silenct. We had a very exciting election, but a very peaceable one, and while the defeated bear their dis appointment gracefully, there are no preans of triumph heard from the victors ; the guns from the East have silenced all that, and you are patriot enough, Mr. Editor, to throw up your beaver with the rest, though triumph does perch on the banner of another, and say with the defeated Francis : "All is lost, save hon ir." There is consolation in even that. To retur to locals : I have just learned that Douglass, District Attorney elect, and Smyle, County Surveyor, are contracting for their "groceries at wholesale, in order to "single" together during their incumbency Lauder County has "done itself proud" in tne election of such men, but the dose will nauseate, and is not likely to be repeated. There is a little excitement here about the Manhattan Company having made an assess- ment and passed pay day ; but it will die out an the company, which can no doubt show a ciean record ani demonstrate careful manage ment, will acquire strength and credit, though ;t js narti poll stockholders as well as the business men of Austin. You know, of course, that your friend Fred Hart has left us, "temporarily," he says, and John Booth is now our chief "liar" and do ing the heavy work of the Reveille. John has the merit at least of being a straight out Republican, and if his blows are not Titanic 1 ' him time and he will gnaw through the meshes of a pretty stout net. In the mean- time Fred is rarely spoken of, and he is as slept quietly in Pat Lyon's "braw ca f ward" at the foot of the grade. So say the poli ticians. The subject of railroad subsidies entered omewhat into the recent contest here, in view of the proposed road from Battle Mountain; but it is not likely that it will ever be built Its fate hlm upou the qlleBtion cf broad or Mrrow S"5je; and only that Gage wears a 14, as broad as a Canadian show-shoe, we should have had, undoubtedly, a narrow guage ropd by spring; but Gage put. his foot on it and saved the county from ruin ; and yet the Democracy set up the howl of railroad monopolies, and roped in all the coal burners and teamsters to vote against the Republican nominees on that ground, while a good Re publican had already settled the question. Mr Gage was not a candidate and his stawiuu, nnt r.fW tirl But I must close, as I am engaged to post some bills for a Chinese holiday. Yours, "Blwchek." THE GRAND PRIZE. As to certain damaging reports about the Grand Prize mine the Tinws-lieriry of No- vember 12 says : It was reported in town Sunday evening that the steam pumps at the new shaft at the Grand Prize were drowned ; that the water could not be got out of the shaft until other pumps were procured from San Francisco, and that there was no probability of the shaft being drained or sinking resumed for a month. This had a very depressing effect upon the spirits of our people, and many were loud in their comllaillts i regard to the bad luck of the town, etc. We soon ascertained, how- eTfir. that the trouble was areatlv exaggerated.

STANDS THE ERA OF WOOD rtEMSti TO BE IPKELD ! HE IS NOT A CANDIDATE FOR A SECOND TERM! ! From last evening's Chronicle we have the following gratifying intelligence : Washington, November 13. The published statements effecting the President's views on the Southern question seem to have been ex aggerated in both directions: The facta ap pear to be that the Administration has decided upon no new steps, but that the President is thoroughly in earnest in his intention to pro tect United States citizens when their rights are . violated, irrespective of their political faith. Chicago, November 13. A Journal Wash ington special says : The interview with the President attracts general attention and is the sensation in political circles. Your corres pondent has high authority for saying that it never occurred, but that it probably gives correctly the President's views. The Presi dent never regarded his Southern policy as an experiment, but as a duty, and the result has been better, in his opinion, for the country than any other course would have been. Thus is the blood-thirsty Radical fired out, as it were, and the lecherous Graatite asphyx ated ! Once more let us meet as brothers and shake hands across the Bloody Chasm ! THE GOVERNOR'S THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION. Following is a copy of His Excellency, Governor Bradley's Thanksgiving Procla mation : The President of the United States having by proclamation designated Thursday, Novem ber 28th, 1878, as a day of National Thanks giving and Prayer, now, therefore, I, L.
