FKIBAT XOTEMBKB 32. 1878 Assaulted His Wife. The intoxicating libations of Thomas Kelly were numerous strong and not too infrequent on Wednesday last. The result was that when, upon the evening of that day, the golden sun was about hiding his blushing face in the far west, Thomas' libations had so greatly increased the Tividness of his normally rivid imagination that he considered himself monarch of every thing, and in fact he assumed a very auto cratic demeanor even toward those who would every now and then buy a drink of cheap whisky for hint. The sun had disappeared, and the silvery moon was casting her refulgent rays upon this virtuous city, the greater num ber of the inhabitants of which had at that hour been rewarded for their constancy in cowting the soothing caresses of Morpheus, when Kelly, more than over-stimulated by his oft repeated pleadings at the bar during the day, faintly conceived the idea of wend ing his way along the path leading in the direction of his domicile. The hour was two yesterday morning, when the hero of this ketch tapped at the door of his home. There was no reply. lie repeated his tapping, and each succeeding tap was of a more, vigorous character than the preceding one. But the door was not opened to the belated convivial ist. His ire became aroused, and in a mo ment of ungovernable passion he kicked that door in. He then entered his wife's bedroom, where she was asleep, and at 2 o'clock in the morning pulled her out of bed and beat her as only a brute in human form could do. At that early hour the poor woman was forced to leave her residence in her night dress to seek protection in a neighboring house. One of her children then went in quest of a po liceman, who was soon foitod in the person of orHcer Iugraham. He followed the child to the scene of his father's misconduct, and took him to jail. Judge Witherell attended to his case yesterday by sentencing htm to ten days imprisonment and a fine of $30. Pity it was not more. Stocks. There was a slight rally in the market yesterday, but the recuperation was of a microscopic nature. It did not have the effect of making Sierra Nevada holders glee fully throw up their hats and order whole baskets of champaign at a time, nor did the appreciation in value of that demoralizing stock make them feel good enough to suggest to their children to incorporate a blessing for -Johnny Skae in their nightly devotions. The rally in the market is so insignificant that it is scarcely worth mentioning. But supposing that Sierra.Nevada, Union, etc. , should again reach the figures of ten days ago, at once, we seriously doubt whether twenty per cent, of the holders of a week ago would be benefited a dollar by such an advance, as fully eighty per cent, of the holders of these stocks were margin buyers who were sacrificed at the first approach of the panic. Hunters to Arrive. George H. Davis, Jr., and L. L. Elrod are expected to return from their hunting trip to-day. They have bee out nearly two weeks, but we are unable to state what success they met with. We merely write this item to prepare their many friends to whom they have promised hampers of mixed game for their coming. As this item is read at the breakfast tables this morn ing of the mighty hunters fortunate friends that is, fortunate if they are not hampered in getting the game we can, in our mind's eye se many a delicate little mouth water. An Indian Schoolboy. A fact scarcely known at all i3, that a Washoe Indian boy about 14'years of age, is a pupil in one of the public schools of this city. It is stated that he is a very diligent student, and is now in the third reader, and can write a very legible hand. This boy's mother is a full blood Washoe Indian, but appears to take as much interest in her son's personal appearance and education as the proudest white mother in the land. From the Great East. Hon. O. H. Gray and Paul Mitchell, banker and Wells, Fargo Co. 'a agent at Cherry Creek, arrived in tha citv on vesterdav morning's train. These - - j j yentlemen are summoned before the United States District Court as witnesses in that ever lasting Cherry Creek mail robbery case Arrival. The following passengers came in fmm the south last evening : Chas. Dud ley. Miss Jennie Stewart, Miss Mary Hill, 8. C. Barnes, Geo. Daley, Andrew Grey, Dr. Blackwood, Geo. C. Gorham, Jr., J. W Spargeon, H. W. Kerr, Al. Gleaaon, J.. Elick on, Ed. Read, two Chinamen. RpvvvRn Rfiv. J. D. Hammond, who has been quite seriously HI, was on the street yesterday. His appearance bears evidence of his having undergone considerable suffering. It seems that the American turkey is in the same boat with the European Turkey. Neither of them will have much to bo thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. Passed Through. General E. S. Davis, U. S. 8urveyor General for Nevada, passed through to Virginia on the train yesterday warning. Grand Jubt. The Ornisby County Grand Jury meets this morning. It is believed that its business will be of a varied and volumnous nature. UNITED STATES DISTRICT CGURT. In the case of Wilson, the mail robber, the Drosacution rested yesterday, and General Clarke made the opening argument to the jury. At the time of adjournment last even ing, Wilson, the defendant, was on the stand, being the first witness examined for the de fense. Thk News from Virginia. At an early hour last evening rumors were strife upon our streets that a certain set of men in Virginia contemplated performing some dark and bloody work in that city daring the night. These rumors were believed by many, basing their belief upon their knowledge of the des perate character of a large mass of the male population of Virginia when they think an injustice has been purposely done them. Bat later in the night information reaches us by wire, that the demonstrative excitement of the day had cooled down, and that there was no imminent danger of any unlawful or riot ous proceedings. During the day and even ing there were little knots of broken men standing on the street corners, excitedly dis cussing what they considered treacherous treatment at the hands of men in whom they trusted ; but there were no more incendiary speeches made, such as the hanging of men and burning of property. Opium Smoking;. We are again callod upon to invite the attention of the authorities to the fact that the unlawful vice of opium smoking by white men aud women in Chinese dens is openly practiced in this city, in direct violation of an ordinance prohibiting it. Our informant says that night after night, whites of both sexes may be seen going into or com ing out of these infamous dens. If a few ar rests of these offenders could bo effected and an example made of them it is more than likely that the result would be a desirable one. Didn't Wast to Take Risks. Yesterday morning a gentleman was standing at the rail way depot, busily engaged in counting $1.25 which he held in his hand. A friend ap proached and asked him if . he was going to Virginia. The interrogated one replied, "No j sir; this is no time for capitalists to visit that city, where they talk of hanging us. The beauty of the joke is that the $1.25 which the "capitalist" held in his hand was the first money he was known to have for the past year. In Town. Sam Dayis, of the Virginia ChroniHe, was in the city last evening on a viait to hia father, the ReY. G. R. Davis. Sam has been very sick since he came back from his unholy 6ght against the Republican i party. Hut now that he has been made to suffer for his political indiscretion, we trust that hs will soon be fully restored to health, be happy and prosper. A New Benedict. Mr. Thomas Stevens, one of the oldest and most popular stage men who ever drove a spanking team across the Sierra Nevada Mountains, was yesterday united in marriage to Mrs. Thurber. We i tender to Mr. Stevens and his bride our con gratulations, and trust that their future paths may be strewn with the traditional roses. Fixing Up Things. The capitol building authorities are putting things in apple pie order in that building, preparatory to receiv ing the legislators and the incoming State officials. The outgoing officers, wish, we pres ume, to preserve their well earned reputation of keeping everything about the establishment as neat as a pin. ihaxksoivixg JJall. we have it upon good authority that the ladies of the Episco pal Church contemplate giving a ball at the Opera House on the night of Thanksgiving day, the 28th instant. The proceeds of this entertainment are to go to the poor. If that is the object of the ball let it be a success. UEPARTURB.S. l ne toUowmg passengers went south on yesterday's coach : W. Davi son, H.
