Til CRN DAY XOVESIBEB SI. 1S78 ABOUT DISINCORPORATION. Coming to the rescue of the Morning Ap psal on the subject matter of " Disincorpora tion," the Ente.rpri.ie of yesterday morning says : " Carson is the most beautiful town in the State, and the oldest (with the exception of Genoa) within the boundaries of our ex tensive but sparsely settled Commonwealth. It has been favored by nature, by art, and by the State as her chosen Capital. It is an incorporated municipality, with excellent but inexpensive Police and Fire Departments. We are satisfied its people are progressive, and we therefore heartily indorse the follow ing well-timed editorial from the Carson Ap peal of Tuesday." After quoting our re marks, oar contemporary says : " The Ap peal is always right in matters pertaining to the public weal, and especially so in regard to enlightened public improvements. Besides being distinguished as the State Capital, Car son has been tavorea by tne l nitea otatos with a Mint, and as the place whence justice Is dispensed through District and Circuit Courts. Considering, therefore, all her nat ural and acquired advantages, it would be foolish in the extreme for the people of Car son to petition the incoming Legislature for the adoption of the retrogressive measure mentioned by our contemporary." STOCKS. STOCK OPERATORS AROUSED A RIOT THREATENED IN VIRGINIA. Yesterday's market was of a more panicky character than any since the fearful decline in values in 1875. The enormous deprecia tion in Sierra Nevada, Union and Mexican to say nothing of other securities, will carry down to ruin many a man who, a week since, was rich. Many a pleasant, comfortable home will have to be sold, and families driven to poor lodgings, to satisfy the avarice of un scrupulous and heartless mining manipula tors. And this comes all from the pernicious and ruinous practice of buying stocks on mar gins. So long as that custom is not done away with, so long will these sudden and frightful breaks occur in the stock market, and so long will the " outside" stock dealer be exposed to being reduced from affluence to absolute want from one day to another. But we suppose that were the entire press of this coast to moralize, day after day, upon the great danger of "buying stocks on a mar gin." the srood people would no more heed the warnings than they do the idle wind, con .equentlj the rich " insider" is daily growin richer, and the poor " outsider" is daily be coming more impoverished. A Chinbsb Thief. Yesterday morning a heathen Mongolian, bearing an iinpoetical pseudonym, stealthily entered a butcher shop in the vicinity of the Mint, with the fixed purpose of surreptitiously getting away with a lean soup bone without tendering the pro prietor an equivalent or asking his leave. But, then the best laid plans of men and mice do not in all instances result satisfactorily to the planners, as will be remarked in the case of our celestial hero. John 'hought he had a oft thing on that hard sowp bone, and was just on the point of secreting it under an abominably dirty blue blouse, when the pro prietor of the establishment, who had stepped out for a moment, entered. It would require the pencil of a Dore to depict the expression of fright which at that moment overspread the saffron-hued face of that Chinaman. He tried to apologize for his kleptomaniacal pro pensit:es in the most classical language of his native tongue and in the cutest pigeon Eng lish. Hut the butcher, whom we take as a member of the Workingrnen's party, was very wrathy : he made the Chinaman dis- gorge, and by the application of a No. 10 boot to the thief the latter was landed in the middle of the sidewalk. Discretion beint one of the strongest traits in our hero's na ture, he concluded that a continuance of the controversy was undesirable, and gathering himself up he made very lively time to ex tend thp distance between himself and the cene of his late exploit. It is generally be lieved, and so expressed by experts, that that Chinaman will in the future buy his soup bones, if his epicurean tastes continue t hanker after the flesh pots. Good Memo. The nmsic furnished bv Prof. E. K. Melone's orchestra, consisting of five pieces, at the Twilight Club reception on Tuesday night, is spoken of by those who at tended in the highest terms of praise. It is stated that the music was tho very best ever famished at any party in this city. SupTBUEiw. Carson has not escaped the evil results of the present stock panic. We are told that there are a number of parties here who could have sold their stocks a week ago at an enormous profit, but would not dis jKae of them, and to-day are worse off than possessing nothing at all. New Musical Society. Our local amateur musical talent has organized itself into a society which is to be known as the "Philhar monic Society, From a gentleman who came from Virginia in a carriage last evening, we learn that yes terdav's frightful depreciation in north end o stocks, which is ascribed to unscrupulous and dishonest manipulations of those mines, and which fact has ruined many a man in Virginia as well as elsewhere, was the bugle sound lor a threatening demonstration on the part of the ''cinched" ones. Later in the afternoon a crowd of very nearly a thousand victims of the Sierra Nevada job were surging to and fro in front of the Nevada and California banks, threatening all manner of violence, such as the hanging of Mackay and Skae and the burning of the Sierra Nevada hoisting works. The excitement was intense, and more law-abiding citizens of that city were momentarily expecting to see the threats of the exasperated mob carried into effect. A delegation of the sufferers hunted up Johnny Skae, and when they found him he was in formed that he must open the mine to visit ors, lie promised to do so and issued passes very freely, the most of which were to be used at 6 o'clock this morning. Then the crowd went in search of John Mackay, but up to a late hour last evening he was not found. This circumstance is a fortunate one, for had Mr. Mackay fallen into the hands of the excited men he would in all probability have come to harm. Up to the time of writ ing this item no acts of violence had been perpetrated, but there is no telling what ex treme measures an excited crowd of men may adopt, and especially when all their earthly possessions are in the twinkling of an eye swept away by men in whom they reposed implicit confidence. We do most avowedty sympathize with the unfortunate ones who have lost their all in the Sierra Nevada ven ture, but at the same time most emphatically deprecate any unlawful course on the part of the unfortunate people. Mob law never did and never will remedy an evil, but, on the contrary, invariably renders a bad state of affairs worse. It is greatly to be hoped that wise and orderly counsel will prevail, and that the riot cloud and threatening storm will pass away without any serious results. Nan FraaeUea Stock Exchange Sales.

At 6:30 o'clock last evening, the people who at that time were on Carson street were startled by the most fearful cries and vulgar i .1. . , i language mar, ever emanated irom a numan throat. The excited populace's speculations regarding the cause tor such unearthly yells were many, until oherin .swift came along with the yeller, whose name could not be as certained, in tow. The prisoner was a vouusr man, recently in troni Bodie, and had con sumed whiskey in unlimited quantities during the afternoon. Toward evenine; the liquor became master, and the result was that tin young man tried to eutdo himself in the mat ter of making himself extremely disagreeable. When, at length, his ambition in that direc tion had reached a climax, the Sheriff found it nesessary for the pubiic good to jug him. He was a powerfully built fellow and the extraordinary quantity of whiskey in him seemed to endow him with superhuman strength. He was too much for one man to conveniently handle, therefore several good citizens volunteered their services in aiding tho Sheriff to take the prisoner to jail. The way he kicked in striving to free himself from his captors was a warning; the emphatic and meaningless oaths he hurled at the mass of humanity who followed him up the street were of a nature to make the devil blush; and the tragic voice and air he assumed after being taken into the Sheriff's office would have reflected credit upon a Forrest. But he was soon subdued and placed in a cell where he will find ample opportunity to reflect upon the fact that the way of the transgressor is not strewn with roses nor spring beds.

Here then is a chance for Rare Bargains in Everything ! Carson, August 6th 13S. GREAT EXCITEMENT! Mr. Isaac C. Bateman Came in from Can delaria and Belleville yesterday. Looks hearty and well, and himself confesses that he stands the hardships of travel and exposure with fortitude. We learn from Mr. B. that there occurred in Bellville, on Monday last, the un paralened event or a destructive nre and a double funeral. Bellville is peculiarly un fortunate in the matter of its combustibility It seems to catch fire with an innate incen diarism which is very surprising. It will be remembered that a distressing conflagration occurred there in October last. The fire of Monday consumed three buildings, one of which, the Belleville House, belonged to a man named Jackson. Mr. Bateman did not remember the names of the owners of the other houses. The town brewery was torn down for the purpose of arresting the flames. This saved Mr. Rhode' store the most im portant business house in the camp. . The progress or tne names was arrested at a maison de ioie keut bv a ladv bv the name of Rose. Mr. Bateman who is accompanied ALL AJN U W1JN TLlt llUUilO, by Air. Hosmer, a gentleman largely inter ested in mining operations thinks the future of Candelaria and Belleville assured and that future developments will be of much impor tance. The death of Mr. Warren, clerk for Travers & Stone, and the sudden killing of one of Farrington's wood teamsters caused the double funeral alluded to. Warren died of pneumonia. The teamster's death was caused by his falling from his wagon and get ting run over. We regret not br jg placed in possession of his name. This extraordi nary misfortune fire and death caused no little mourning in the camp. Mr. Bateman went to San Francisco last night.

I cannot describe the suff'-rinj,", both phrsi. rally and mentally, that I hare undergone diirimr thst Ixti'imJ; and now I f--o' like a new bvin. I have worn all kinds of Trusses, both Steel and Elastic, and never received any permanent relief until I tried yours. Its simplicity of construction, and facility with which it cull be adjusted, and the ease and perfect freedom tn the motions of the body with which it can be worn without causinir any Irri tation, are its chief merits, and it is a erfeet supporter. I have not had any siirn of a return of the rupture since th first day I put it on, and feel that I am peifectly CrKEU. It is invi'u ible, and the fact should be known to the world.
