VOESUAT. .TEXBEK 19. L97 A RUNAWAY. Yesterday a horse (whose criminality is of an motional nature), forsaking tke then present ataading-plaoe of his duty, turned a quick turn and broke, cart and all, for Doc, Ben ton's stable. The superior quality of the horse -fed there dispensed to the expectant equine is thus proven. A horse once fed by Benton or Benton's men become restive under any restraint which keep him from his epi curean manger, breaks loose wherever tethered sod makes a straight horse's tail for that at tractive resort. But alas for his misdirected aeL He was more zealous than discreet. He made short work of his invasion. He did not stop to ring or knock or say "by your leave." One of Benton's horsos his pet grey, in short, tw in the way of this eccentric courser, and incurred the force and impulse of his on-surging endeavor. Down went the grey, on sped the eager runaway. Some bruises were re ceived by the astonished grey, but his injuries, happily, are not serious. This runaway beast lias done this trick, with notable suddenness several times before. He seems to be seized with a momentary passion for finding his stall and permits nothing to stand in his way as he certainly stands not upon the order of his going. Here and there a hitching-strap for this ecoentric animal, or a prudont and timely sale of him to some unsuspecting farmer would be judicious, it seems to us. SHALL WE DISINCORPORATE? UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT. The third trial of the Cherry Creek mail robbers began in this Court yesterday. The attorneys for the prosecution are Hou. C. S. Varian and General J. R. Kittrell, and the at torneys for defendants are General R. M. Clarke and R. D. Ferguson. The first of the accused who will be tried separately from his oo-defendants, Bell and Donnelly, is George Wilson, charged with mail robbery at Cherry Creek, Nevada, November 21, 1877. The jurors sworn in up to the time of adjourn ment of the Court last evening, were, W. A. Maaison, of Washoe, DeWitt Wagner, of Gold Hill, Asa Roles, of Gold Hill, Henry Whistler, of Washoe, J. J. Cooper, of Vir- gima, lions Jones, oi vvasnoe, J. u. or acne baugh, of Douglas, O. C. Ross, of Washoe and Henry Weston, of Washoe. By consent f counsel on both sides defaulting witnesses will be allowed to purge themselves of con tempt as they are called. The case will be resumed at 10 o'clock this morning. We are convinced that there will be an effort made in the Legislature to repeal the existing Act of municipal incorporation under which , our little city's affairs are conducting. The Mokxino Afpkal has always taken a very decided stand in favor of maintaining a town government here. To dispense with it now is to go back to retrograde in the di rection of rusticity and meanness. There are some obligations imposed upon us as the citizens aud neighborfolk of the Capital. There is a measure of refinement due from us and our surroundings. To set the seat of government back into the condition of a cow- pasture and a swine -pen is to do injustice toward ourselves and our guests the State officers, the members of the Legislature and our many visitors. lne very condition in which we find ourselves, that of the citizenry of rhs Capital, puts us under obligations of cleanliness, decency and order. These can not be maintained without municipal au thority. Instead then cf lessening any of our efforts toward the desired result, it becomes us to . strengthen our ends and purposes. Nobles oblige ; and folk who are favored with the distinction of Capitol keeping owe it to themselves to keep their streets tidy, their walks in good repair, their drains and gutters cleanly and free and the face and fashion of things outward neat and sweet and attractive. And so, let us not disincorporate. MRS SCOTT-SIDDONS. Sua FraaelMX k4ek Euksaft Sales. SoiBxrino Personal. Mr. William Ein beck, one of the most cultured and scientific members of the United States Coast Survey on this coast, by invitation, called to see ub last evening. Tin's gentleman visits Carson to make arrangements to store some valuable instruments, belonging to the survey, in the Mint building for the winter, and to consider the feasibility of making th:a the starting point for a geodetic survey across the conti aent next year ; that is, from the Sierra Ne vada to the Wasatch Mountains. Operations for the winter have been suspended, but will be resumed next June, when, in all proba bility, Mr. Eiubeck will organize his party here. This centleman has been connected with this important branch of the Govern ment service since 1870, and has beeu sta tioned on the Pacific Coast for the past five years. Mr. Eiubeck appears to be more thoi-ouchlv familiar with the details of the service with which he is connected than any gentleman we have met for many years. He leaves for San Francisco to-night, and thence goes to Washington, where he will pass the winter. We trust that his deliberations will result in his returning huta to organize his party, as he at present contemplates doing. The seats of the dress circle and the more advanced chairs of the parquet te were well and handsomely filled last night. That is, Carson's best listeners were out in consider able force to hear Mrs. Scott-Siddons in her "Recitals." It is needless to say she mads with great grace and from the vantage ground of a very evident and liberal culture. The prograame was not long, but the selections were of a very judicious and attractive sort. In the First Part, "Curfew must not ring to night," and Lady Macbeth's sleep-walking scene were very nuely rendered the latter with much effect. " The creeds of the Bells" was delivered in a surprising intonation of voice, and the courtship scene from Henry V. was given with much vivacity. The ac complished lady was greeted with much cor dial approbation, and favored her audience with a hisrhlr pleasinsr and en lovable enter tainment. Carsoh Thbatsr Damagkd bt Firs. On Sunday morning while the devout citizens of this city were in church, the town was startled by a general alarm of fire. The fire was found to be in the Carson Theater build ing, and although of short duration and do ing little damage, created as much excitement as would a conflagration of the first magni tude. The actual damage done to the build ing has not been ascertained, but the insur ance men are at work, who will soon figure it out. The old Carson Theater is the oldest building in Carson, and has been the scene of many a pleasant evening's entertainment, but we suppose that, like lives, even buildings must come to an end, and the old theater did have a close call on Sunday. Mr. J. Q. A. Moore, the owner, told us that he has paid enough insurance premiums on that property to have built him a first-class stone building, and we believe it HORKTffa WMM. tnu- SO, 49-4 Mexican 68 5i Gould a Curry l 1S4 Best Belcher WA lUiH California 9lA 9 Consolidated Virginia 8 8 Chollar Potosi 51 Hale A Norcross 14 U Crown Point 654 $H Yellow Jacket 16 17J Savage ZlA 12 Alpha 12H IS Belcher 6 6?

Abe Curry, who is employed in Wells, Fargo & Co. 'a office in this city, is worthy of a more than compli ruentary notice in these columns. This youth is during the whole day engaged at his bus iness in the express office, but in spite of that fact, he has in the last few months, in his leisure hours, with his own industrious hands, built an addition to his mother's residence in the nortnern portion of the city, which would reflect credit upon the workmanship of many a master carpenter. We hold Master Cowan up as an example for the youths in Carson to imitate. He does not idle away his precious time, but devotos it to something profitable. sji.v koua m onrtaiii to make their mark m UKU - the world and for whom an honorable man hood is in store. Too Bad! Hank Monk complaims that he has had less passengers of a gullable nature traveling with him to and from Lake Tahoe during the past season than at any time since he has been on the route. He says, to ase his own language, "If I don't get rid of some of my accumulated lies before the Leg islature adiourus, I'll bust sure." We think -he is right, because he can fill up with the most outrageous lies faster than any man in the State. Pkusomal.

There was a frightful deprecia tion in stock values yesterday. Sierra fso vada dropped very nearly 50 per cent from its closing: prices on Saturday, and the other securities fell m proportion, through sym pathy. It is stated upon the best of author ity that this depreciation is an inside bear job, and not owing to an unfavorable condition of the mines. Sad Death. Early on Sunday, Georgie, the four year old son of Mr. and Mrs. George Gillaon of this city died very suddenly. Georgio was a very beautiful and intelligent boy, whom everybody greatly admired. We armly sympathize with the afflicted parents in their sad bereavement. Police Court. lne case ot John Davis was again called iu this Court yesterday, and again the fjury agreed to disagree.
