FBI DAT SOVEHBEI S3. IMS OUR AUSTIN LETTER. Nothing so liocomea a scholar as his good Kiuliah: and the critical readers of the 3 ' M')kmng Appeal will asrree with its edit Hat our Austin correspondent, spicy, incisive 6 d replete with genuine humor, addresses niaaelf to the purer side of one s literary pre Tl. . . . AMioea with great cleverness. We think we r i promise our readers a continuance of th I IB "eaa&ut and chatty corresponding K THE GREAT MINE OF THE BASE RANGE A the traveller approaches the busy city of F.;ireka by night he somehow bethinks him self of Pittsburg, Wheeling and similar towns and cities in and among the great iron mining and coal-producing regions of the Upper Ohio The lurid lights from the coal kilns, the steaming glare from the tall chimneys of the melting works, the hot and threatening piles tf slag, these wierd sights and spectacles of :he neighborhood attest the character of the listrict. It seems to us that Eureka, in the rofundity of its mines and their rastness, is y all odds the most permanent and mex ft.vjstible mining camp in the State hardly exceoting our neighbor of the Comstock. The present promising outlook in Eureka is shad owed forth by the following, which we clip from the frntinl of Nov. 20: The 1200-foot level of the Eureka Consoli dated mine is to-day the most interesting spot i:i the Eureka district. It is interesting be cause of its direct bearing upon the wealth and permanency of the mines of this immedi ate neighborhood. It demonstrates that our :mnea not only go down to an indefinite depth, but also grow richer as they descend. We have it on good authority that the 1200-foot level of the Eureka is promising even better than the rich levels above. The ore body at this point is widening rapidly, is cleaner, better defined and freer of waste rock and other objectionable matter, and not stopping here, actually assays nearly KJ( to the ton la gold, to say nothing of the silver ana lead. This is a most encouraging circumstance for the future of our town. It gives to all prop erty and business here an enhanced value, for the trood reason that we have adutiuiial evi deuce that the "camp (as thev call it) is destined to last and nourish for years. The reojIe of Eureka no less than the sharehold ers in this great mine, are to be congratulated the bnsrht outlook assured bv the valuable development made at the greatest depth at tained by any mine in the distrcit. Trouble ix Trcckk. Trouble is almost inevitable. The safetv committee have done all in their power to bring mutters to a peace able conclusion. The Chinese, however, are snoiliu-j for a fiUt. They have a large mipply of Henry rifles, innumerable revolvers, and Lnives by the hundreds. Thev are building steadily, and, backed by their white adviser, threaten war if the whites interfere. The citizens' committee have made the Chinese all rh'j fair offers possible, but all to no purpose The liepublictn says it looks as if the Chi ftese were bulldosing the whites. The same lirer also says : Truckee people are not usually very timid, or very easily imposed upon. All Chinese having any right have been protected by the committee, but there is a large class who own no property what tver, and this is the class which threaten trouble. Thk Sorrowful Max. The Eureka Leader tells the following tale of woe A poor, lone, weary, half-clad man, with a care-worn appearance and pair of sticks with a short stick nailed across one end of each for crutches, hobbled around town last Sabbath morning, to ask the charitably dis p-sed for a. few dimes with which ta procure bread, that he might thereby appease the aching void within, and sustain the almost tmrdensome life to which want and penury had brought him. A tear coursed down the mendicant's cheek as he told his plaintive s:ory, and asked assistance at a stranger's hands. Such agency as his never comes to those who sit boside a cheerful hearthstone of their own when wintry blasts blow shrill and keene ; the favored of God's people may know that abject poverty is wretchedness, but wretchedness in theory would place a man, compelled to practice it, far out on a golden shore whence suffering and misery were for ever banished. His appeal was not unheeded, and when he bid adieu to those who gave, each heaved a sigh, and seemed to feel assured that credit had been given them up there. With a clanking sound his ungainly crutches bore him and his accumulation of $4 50 with out the door and down the street into a Birbary Coast dive, whore he played pedro and drank stale beer, until every cent was gone. Arretted. The Tuscarora Time-i-Jiei'letr of Tuesday informs us as follows ; C. C. Crane, formerly a deputy Constable in this town, was arrested yesterday morning by officer Boynton upon a bench warrant from the District Court, issued upon an indictment found by the last grand jury charging the defendant with obtaiuing money under false pretenses Crane left yesterday morning in charge of Win. Hanipson for Elko. His bail fixed at two thousand dollars. The of femte, as alleged in the indictment, consisted in Crane having sold a promissory note, drawn in his favor, to M. P. Freeman, and afterwards collecting the money from the Payer and giving a receipt therefore, without informing the latter of the disposition made of the paper. New York, November 21.

Editor Appkal : Austin is fast becoming the literary hub of Nevada. In addition to an X Y Z club and a reading club, and an Ancient Hibernian Society, a new literary society has just been organized under the auspices of Hon. John Smyth, Dr. Scott and some other leading citizens. The objects of the society are the cultivation of a purer pro nunciation of the English language; a re vision of the sacramentuin, or swearing oode; anthropology, numismatics, and antiquarian research generally. The first paper read was by Mr. Smyth, entitled "Some researches as to the origin of the Smith family," in which the learned gentleman demonstrated the proposition that Tubal Cain was the founder of the family ; and traced the line down through the fellows who forged thunderbolts for Jupiter Tonans and arrows for Cupid "ad mea, tempore," closed the classical mem ber for Lander County, amid thunders of ap plause. The second paper was read by Dr. Scott ; subject, Anthropology. The learned gentle man began by defining anthroprlogy as derived from the ancient Celtic. " Anthropos," which, said the Doctor, "means a man, and the old Celt was the tallest kind of man." "No sir, I want to trace for a moment the origin of our race, and, ignoring Darwin and his caudal theories, 1 go back to what you will permit me to denominate the 'ovarian period,' and to demonstrate by tangible evi dence that man was originally oviparous. have only, Mr. President, in support of my theory, to lay before this learned body this egg, discolored, as you see, by age. From time immemorial this onun you will excuse me gentlemen for using the universal language of science has been in the Scott family, handed down from one generation to another, till it filially came into the hands of your un worthy speaker, vouched for by no less a personage than the great Sir Walter, as 'The hnj of the last minstrel.' " The Doctor's peroration, which was pro nounced by the chairman " a nail driver," was hailed by shouts of applause, followed by an examination of the egg, which all but one pronounced "prodigious." The doubter swore (aside) that it was only a d d China nest egg. The next paper was then announced to be read at the next monthly meeting by Dr. Hammond a dissertation on quacks in which he will attempt to trace the history of that race back through "Dr. Hornbook" to a certain Assyrian king called Tiglath, and sur uained Pileaer, on account of a specific which he is said to have invented. The proceedings of the society, which are to be modeled upon those ef the Pickwick Club, will be published regularly in a pro jected journal. Everything is fixed but the title, on which the members are divided; but from present indications it will be called "The Austin Clarinette" or the "Holy Ter ror of Reese River Valley." Neutral in politics, of course, now that the election is over, but opposed to Mike Farrell and rail road monopolies, as innovations upon an tiquity and in favor of General Rooker, Broadhorns and bull-teams. Kittrell is retained as one of the contribut ors, and will furnish a series of papers on British colonial times during the rebellion, and Bradley will descant upon the "Pleasures of solitude." "Lauder Democrat," the re cent Sentinel correspondent, was talked of as editor, but on consideration he was voted 'too slangy" and his name was dropped. It is probable that "Stub" will occupy the tri pod. With all these honors, Austin is as quiet and undisturbed as a New England village on Sunday morning ; save now and then as a line of prarie schooners toils up the grade, freighted with goods from the "Bay;" or 'Stub" drives his grays into Main street, gay with ribbons and musical with sleigh-bells; or the jingle of coin comes from the all night saloons; or the subdued sound of the Manhattan quartz mills breaks on the ear like the rattle of an approaching train. Thanksijiving day will break the monotony for a few hours, and then thanksgiving will melt into dullness, and, "like the "baseless fabric of an onion, leave not a rack behind;" except perhaps a racking headache, born of "tanglefoot" whiskey. Yours, Bluchkr. DISTRESSING Accident The Silver State of Tuesday relates the following : A serious accident befell Fred. Brougham of Camp McDermit las' week while on his way from his wood ranch. He left the ranch with a span of horses and buggy. Something on tne road frightened the horses and they became unmanageable. The buggy upset, nd his feet becoming entangled in the lines, ho was dragged a considerable distance. The loisos broke loose trom the buggy, leaving Brougham under it, in a helpless condition, where he was found thirty hours afterward. His right side is partly paralyzed and his right arm powerless. It is thought he will recover the use of his arm. London, November 20. Cleveland mine owners have ordered a ten per cent, reduction of wages. The proprietors of the Oldham cotton mills refuse to postpone the three months ten per cent, reduction, and the Clyde shipbuilders threaten a lockout unless the men agree to lower wages. A PRONOUN WANTED. The Moline, (III.) Dupatch treats of a cer tain new ism of the spelling book makers as follows: The Peoria Transcript of last Saturday has an editorial deserving of more attention than it will receive, we venture to say, on the sub ject of a want in our language which Bhould be supplied. The want is a pronoun in the singular number, and common gender, third person. Without which the illiterate, and many who would not like to be considered so, constantly blunder, and scholars resort to all manner of circumlocution. Thus: "If any person tresspasses on these premises, shall suffer the penalty." Who shall? The illiterate would say "they." But nothing can be more absard, unless it be the word "he," which the scholars would use if forced into such a sentence. But, as we were saying, the scholar would avoid it by some circumlo cution. Of this the Transcript gives a good example: "Let every brother or sister ex amine himself or herself, and, looking into his or her heart, find out his or her besetting 3in and resolutely cast it from him or her." A good suggestion was made by somebody over'a year ago on this subject so good that we believe now as we did theu that nothing more is necessary than for good writers like these Transcript people to adopt it, and the thins is done. Our advocacy ot the new pro noun then subjected us to good-natured sar casm, but that matters not. Ridicule is the ordeal through which every step of progress is made. The suggestion was simple nom "e." pos. "es " obi. "em." The use will be readily seen, thus: "If anybody trespasses on these premises "e shall suffer the penalty of "es" transgressions. It will not be well for "em." Nothing is meeded but use to make "E just as good a pronoun tor tne third person as "I" is for the first; and it will hardly be denied that the various cases, as given above, are etymologically good and liar monious. In this light let us examine the sentence quoted above, as an example ef cir cumlocution: Let every brother and sister examine "emself, and look into es hear. find out "es" besetting sin, and resolutely cast it from "em." CONKLING AT HOME. The Administration is probably satisfied by this time thatRoscoeConkling is a power in the Empire State. That he will be his own sue cessor and the leader of the next Senate are events which depend simply upon his life and health. He is the head of his party in the nation, and must in a large measure shape if not control its action in the future. If he chooses to be a candidate for the Presidency in 1880 he would go into the Republican National Convention with a much larger fol lowing than he had in 1875. Friends more devoted he could not have than those who in sisted upon voting for him at Cincinnati. But the number of such is much greater now and it will be a growing host. J udging by the present outlook, there is but one man whose chances for the next Presidency are to be compared with Roscoe Conkling's, and that man is U. S. Grant. But between these two friend there can not and will not be any rivalry. The one of them who first knows that tko -jther desires to have the -Republican nomination, that one will not be a candidate This might seem to require a sacrifice to friendship greater than political humanity is capable of. But we believe both are capable of it. At any rate, nothing looks surer than that the name of either Grant or Conkling will head the Republican ticket m 1380. Many would like to see both names on it. A New York Times Washington special says that " Linderman's commission expires December 8 and efforts are making to super sede him. Postmaster Snowden of Philadel phia is the most prominent candidate, but it is doubtful if Sherman will consent to any change. Snowden would rather be Superin tendent of the Philadelphia Mint, as it has more patronage. The National Grange of the Patrons of Husbandry met at Richmond, Va. , on the 20th instant, in their twelfth annual session Twenty, five States were represented. The officers' reports show the order is in a flour ishing condition. Paris, November 21. Gambetta and De Fourten wore announced to right with pistols to-day at Hantbruyes. The parties met and had one exchange of shots at thirty-five paces. Neither was hurt. A match game of billiards, 1000 points, was played in Chicago on Wednesday night be tween George F. Slosson and Jacob Schaefer, for $250 a side. Slosson won, scoring 1000 to Schaefer's 730. Thomas H.
