Tl hSDAY AIOIHT 12. 17 THEN AND NOW. London, August 7. Financial writers say that the withdrawal of gold from England yesterday, for the United States, is probably the precursor of larger shipments in payment for American produce arriving here and in France. It is understood that the Bank of England holds a large amount in American varies. A few years ago, we used to watch with the utmost anxiety day by day, for the quota tions in gold, in order to buy exchange on England the moment it dropped a fraction. That was when the balance of trade was against us; when the country, crawling out of a civil war, which we of the North forced on the innocont South, had neither produce nor manufactures to ship, and they were re lieving us of our gold, fondly longing and hoping for the time when, under the pressure of the heaviest debt ever contracted for a sin gle war, and the drain on our resources, we Hhould fall an easy prey to our pious and af fectionato grandfather. John calculated with out his host, and the country has not only survived the crash of war, but hits so advanced in manufactures, and products of the soil, that gravitation Inn turned the other way, and we are drawing the coin from John's strong box, instead of his drawing from ours, and he is whining and blubbering over the change of nfTiira, and will whine more as Lis land be comes depopulated, and he lias daily to put up more gold for American products. IVr- lupj in the history of the human race, there it not a pari! !el to the events which have taken pl.scu in our laud within eighteen years. A fearful, destructive and exhaustive war ia-augu'-atod, bitterly fuight aud generously closed, sUvery, which Hoemed to be the carti lage of Ciiiiug and Kn, between the North and the South, an i which no one supposed could ever be cut without death to one or both, has been utterly wiped from the land. England, which proved herself our worst en emy during tha conflict, has been brought to her knees, and while Beaconsfield is subduing Zulu's, ho forgets that a greater interest is slipping from beneath his feet this way. The balance of trade has gravitated westward, and pretty soon the meridian of Washington, in stead of Farvo or Greenwich, will mark the world's latitude, longitude and time. Our manufactures are now sold in England in com petition with their pauper labor; our cereals rule their market; our machinery cut them out of the Continental trade, and our broad Continent receives their starved out popula tioii. Don't cry, John, we'll reserve a snug corner for you when your farm will not pay any more, and protect you in your senility. STATE AND COAST ITEMS. Daniel Mulcahey, an old miner, was killed on Saturday morning, by falling from the COO station of the Lady Bryan shaft into the sump at the 7u0 foot level. The Lyon County Times is out for Grant and Booth. The Time. is going to oryataze this campaign and will run it on any plan, "in stallment," cash or note.

High toned fel lows, these managers. By a resolution, adopted at a meeting of the Advisory Committee of the creditors of the Pioneer Land and Loan Association, l e d yes terday, it was decided to notify Sheriit" Nunan that the Committee protests against the prac tice of allowing J.

There is a hardy miner over in Pony Canyon, who, after years of hard labor and perseverance, has developed one of the best properties in Nevada, and is Krowin rich. We refer to Tom Ward of Eureka. Torn has been taking large quanti ties of rich ore from his mine, and like a wise man, ho is laying up a store of future enjoy ment. He has just returned from California where he purchased a ranch in Sonoma County, which he is having put in shape, and will stojk with the best blol of horses and cattle. We know Tom and rejoice at his good fortune. He has certainly one of the best mines in Nevada. The Philadelphia iv says: "John China man has had a sort of monopoly in the laun dry business in this city for years past, and notwithstanding his 'cheap labor' he has man aged to become the posseaor of quite a snug lortuns. But his days of 'heap washee-washee' are drawing to a close, and this is miinly due to the ambition of several colored men who have started opposition laundries, and do the work i ust as well at reduced prices." If our people who howl over and cannot do without Chinese labor would only enourad nesro immigration to this Coast, they would build up the bjst defeucj against the pigtailed heathens. Thehb is a fever in the counterfeit market. Three or four new dangerous counterfeits havo been put in circulation within a few days. It looks as though the fraternity knew each other's plans an I were trying a3 to which Bhould first get into the market. These men work patiently foe months, an J apply to their felonious business, talent and muscle, which employed in the legitimate walks of their trade, would bring, not only a good income, but peaco, and imuiuuity from criminal charges, and long incarcerations : but human depravity prefers the crooked road of sin, which always ends at the same goal. . w Old lecumseh Sherman puts a damper on a few contractors who had put up a job to have the uniforms of the army changed. He evidently smells shoddy in it, but thinks the old uniform in which the boys squelched the rebellion and which has a peculiar signifi cance, is good enough. How many jobs of this kind are put up, referred to eommittees of which lobbyists are useful members, in fact the working members, and shoved on the country at enormous expense with no more how of reason or necessity than this present change of uniform. But all the departments have not a Sherman at their head.
