XKW AITHTISEMETS. CASH BOOT AND SHOE STORE. The Adams House, HATIKDAY MAT 17, 1S7 GOOD MATURED. Such of our " local'" railroaders as were Tceen to betray the Republican ticket last fall are greatly delighted with our amplifications of Australian Reform. We acknowledge the compliment, and promise that their grins shall be broader in due time. We thought they would like almost anything except straight Republicanism, and are not disap pointed. Hope none of them will strain their eyes too much in reading up Reform. Edison denies that his electric light has failed, or that he has stopped experimenting. (Some of the French j ournals of Canada are talking treason, and even refer to the Marquis of Lome as "that young wan." They might as well call him a "person." "Ik Marvel," Donald O. Mitchell, is now a silver-haired gentleman, living in literary re tirement and luxurious ease at his beautiful place near New Haven, well known as Edge wood. Paul Di Cassaonac is in trouble again. Says a late dispatch: The government will on Saturday demand from the Chamber of Dep uties authorization to prosecute Paul De Cas sagnac, a member, for an article published in his journal attacking the goreruiueiit. Reno has been indulging in a prize fight. From the account given it could not hav been conducted on the most scientific princi ples, and such as it was, it got nipped in the bud by the appearance of the constable and his posse. Six of the ringleaders were ar rested. It is said that at a club dinner at the Cen tennial Hotel, Paris, the other day, Mark Twain took three-quarters of an hour to give his reasons for not saying anything.

O'Con nor has introduced a bill in the House of Commons to establish the University ot St. Patrick at Dublin, with affiliated colleges, making provision for fellowships, scholarships, and exhibition, at a cost of 1,500,000, to be defrayed from the Irish Church temporal ities. The question is, w ill the English let the Irish have it. A strange fatality attended the early discov erers of America. Columbus died broken hearted, Itollin and Bobadilla were drowned, Ovanda was harshly superseded, Las Casas sought refuga and consolotion in a cowl, Oje da died in extreme poverty, Encisco was de posed by his own followers, Nicuessa perished miserably by the cruelty of his party, Vasco Nunez de Balboa was disgracefully beheaded, Narvaez was imprisoned in a tropical dungeon and afterward died of hardship, Cortez was dishonored, AlvaraJo was assassinated, Alnia gro was garroted, Pizarro was murdered and his four brothers killed, and De Soto per ished on the bank of the Mississippi. Mr Tennyson, wa!ld:iL; in a London park the other d.iy, met a writer who describes the poet thus: "He looked fa!!, somewhat stout round-shouldered, and he walked with a stick, as though the gout were hanging about his Jegs or feet. Hj had a long board which al most buried his face, and wore a pair of large round, Chinese-looking spectacles. He had on a very broad brimmed, weather-worn felt hat, dark trousers and gaiters, several under coats or jackets, covered over all by a thin, shabby-looking red tweed dust coat, buttoned very tightly, a3 though it were much too small for him. Dangling outside from what should have been a clean white shirt front was a pair of large gold-rimiued spectacles. He was one of the oddest looking creatures I have ever een out of a Mormon meeting.'' Con'rrning Emma Kelly, the Elko Indn jtendent, after publishing the story of the sad u icicle of this poor child, gives the following particulars of her earlier life- " The citizens of this place will remember the facts in connec tion with the death of Mrs. Kelly, mother of this unfortunate, who about two and a half years ago, died in Lamoille Valley, and the girl with her little brothers were found locked in the house where they were left by the heartless father. Money was contributed by the citizens here, to bury the mother, and through the eff orts of R. H. Bernard, one of our former citizens, the children were brought here, provided with food and clothing, of which they were nearly destitute, and kindly provided for by Mr. Bernard until application for their admission to the Home was granted, when they were forwarded to Carson by the county, which paid the expense of their tran sit. Little, if anytning, was known of the family in this place until the news of their destitution, and the efforts in their behalf, particularly by Mr. Bernard, were the pronip l ns of pure charitable humanity, distressed l)j other's woes.

The only survivor of the Smith sisters of Glastenbury, celebrated for their resistance to taxation without representation was married on Thursday week at the age of 87, which also was the age of the groom. Is this to be taken as a surrender? THE SHOSHONE RESERVATION. Mr. II. McCulloch, writing to the Elko Tiulupttulent, gives the following interesting account of the Reservation in Duck Valley: Iu company with our Indian Aent, Mr. How, we started on a rusticating tour to Duck valley on the 29 th of April, in order to visit the future home of our estern Shoshones. The valley is situated on a fork of the Owhyee, about 1'20 miles from Eiko by stage, partly in Nevada and partly in Idaho. The reservation is twenty miles square, including a large tract of timber laud and an abundant supply of watir from the Owhvee for irrigation purposes. Owing to its isolated position; its extent of territory, and its wonderful adaptedness for hay, rain and agricultural purposes, it is ad mirably suited for the purpose for which it is designed. Contrary to the predictions of many, the Indians have made a noble start in their agri cultural efforts. About 150 acres of grain, potatoes and vegetables will be put in the present season; a large amount of hay will be cut and baled, and as government has supplied wagons and farming implements, and the In dians, working horses, a large business will be carried at. their own expense. I noticed they have good teamsters and farm hands amongst them, so that the work is done entirely by themselves. Mr. L. Gheen superintends mat ters on the reserve and seems to be much in terested, active and zealous in the discharge of his duties. Comfortable log houses, for winter quarters, store-houses and granaries will be built this summer, so that after the present year the expense to goveruniemt will be but trifling. Mr. How's advent amongst them was hailed with delight, shaking of hands, exhibitions of white teeth, addresses of, "John How," with out any sobrique, or "Levi Gheen's Papa," were heard and seen on all sides. Two large beeves a week, with flour, tea, coifue and sugar, is the present allowance, supplied by govern ment, but after they harvest their present crop, and gather iu their two hundred head of cattie, they will materially curtail the govern mental expenses. Were it not for too much intrusion on your valuable time and space we would like to say more of our delightful trip. In the present appointment, we have what is difficult to find, an honest agent, one in whom both Indians and government have the utmost confidence, and one worthy of the trust con fided to him. San Francisco, May 16. Charles M. Peck, for some twenty years the book-keeper and confidential clerk of Redington fc Co., whole sale druggists, and Secretary of the Redding ton Quicksilver Mining Company, has ab sconded. He was last seen on the steamer Australia, which sailed for Honoluia and Sydney on Monday last. The amount of his defalcation is thought to be comparatively small. The Quicksilver Mining Company is loser by his operations to the amount of $10, 000. Peck left a note to his wife and children simply bidding them good-bye. The cause of the defalcation was stocks. A Servant girl employed at No. 929 O'Far rell street attempted to suicide this morning by swallowing a bottle of washing fluid. Her recovery is doubtful. The cause was religious excitement. Edward Redmond, the young man who pleaded gulity to the charge of attempting to obtain money by false pretenses, by writing letters to persons in the East, was sentenced in the Police Court yesterday to one year in the House of Correction. noitx.
