Petosi was very strong on rumors of a strike, aud sold at Belcher opened at l and closed at 11. The manipulators of this stock were willing to pay 11 for their favorite, but they would not all at that figure, and seemed reluctant to let stock go at llg. Otherwise the Comstock stocks were maintained at Wednesday's rates. The feature of the early session was business in Columbus District stocks. Northern Belle was steady at 17, Mr. Diablo sold at 20, and lit. Potosi rallied to 3&. Between sessions the market was quiet and prices shaded off a trifle. There was sum inquiry for Belcher, whieh sold at . Prices declined in the second session of the Board. Belcher was the only stock to show strength. It sold from llf to 11 J.

It gives the returns by THE KINDERGARTEN, SOMETHING ABPT THB OBJECT TlAOHISO SYS TIM HALF AN HOUR IB THB SCHOOL A FXoTJIilSHISU lNaTITTJTIOB. Y'esterday morning an Appeal reporter visit ed the Kindergarten school and spent a half hour iu the institution watching the beauties of the new system of teaching small children by the use of objects. There are at present 47 schol- countio as follows : Muyo 64.609 Gal way 43,260 SliKa 42,930 Kerry 33,100 Donegal 28,000 Roscommon 26,150 Cork 23,8 Clare 19,360 Limerick 7,600 Tiperary 6,300 L it rim 5,800 Wieklow 3,600 Mahajrhan 2,300 Westmeath 1,900 Longford 1.875 Kilkenny 1,790 Total 312,370 The abovenuinbiars represent those who are in a destitute condition and are actually on the verge of starvation. It also gives returns front the parishes and extracts from letters which pour into Dublin daily. The Appeal gives a few extracts which show that the sit uation in Ireland is ssarcely realized in this country. Whitexate, 100 families, "Children crying from hanger." Kirvana, 300 families, "Many living on one meal a day." Spiddal, 400 families, "Two hundred fam ilies on the verge of starvation." Scotstown, 150 families, "The people are dying for want of food." Tulsk, 700 persens, "Without government aid it will be another '47." Kilgrass, 1,700 persons, "An appalliag famine threatened." Dromore West, 1,600 persoss, "Two hin- dred families literally starving. " Dysart, 500 persons, "Lord help ns er it will be toe late." Barrisearra, 250 families, "Living on salt and turnips." Roseanberry, "Nearly all in the parish starving and only seed potatoes to eat." Corafio, "One family 11 persons living nn a shilling a day." Foxford, 700 families, "Fer God's sake send ns meney or food." This gives a general idea of the terrible destitution prevailing in Ireland, and the re lief must come soon or it will be too late. WHAT CAKSOX SHOULD DO. As yet Carson has done nothing in a pablie way for the famine-stricken sufferers, although Virginia City moved in the matter weeks ago. There is not to-day in Carson a single family suffering or beginniag to suffer the privations which over 200,000 people of Ireland have suffered for months. The eitizens should meet at ence in seme sort of a pnblie demon stration of generosity. The matter has been discussed among many of the leading citizens and the following is authorized for publication: PCBL1C M 4.1S atlBTIK. To tbb Citizbni of Cakbok. There is at present a famine in Ireland by whieh a quar ter of a million people are reduced to the verge of starvation. The reports from sev eral hundred parishes shew a state of desti tution simply appalling. As relief measures are being taken all over the coast, it behooves the citizens of one of the richest States in the Union to put their Capital on the list of charity givers. The destitution in the fsmine-strick-en Island is so extensive that all political, sectional aud religious prejudices should sink before the enormity of the suffering. There will be a muss meeting of the citizens at the Opera House Thursday evening of next week to raise money for the Irish relief fund. The above is made at the special request of many citizens who do not desire to parade their names in a matter ef charity, and the clergy of the various churches are requested to read the announcement from their respec tive pulpits. Thursday night has beea chosen as it is the first night of next week on which the hall can be secured. It is to he hoped that the matter will be snfficiantly agi tated between now and then to make it a suc cess both in point of number and subscription. ars in this department, and they are bright well taught children who show by their ac tious aud cheerful faces that they like their school. HOW THE CHILDRBif ABB TAUGHT. There are two grades in the school. Both grades are taught on the sane plan except that the upper is slightly more complicated than the lower. The children are seated at long low tables, divided off into small squares Each child has a box ef eight or sixteen blocks as the case may be, and answers arithmetical questions by dividing and Bub-dividing the piles of blocks. Fur instance the question is put: "What is one eighth of the wh.)le?" Each child of the lower grade holds up a lit tle cubic section of wood representing one eighth of the pile before it. One half is rep resented by four sections, and so on. Several hundred words printed nn strips of cardboard lie loosely in a box and the teacher forms these words iuto sentences on a narrow strip of wood asking Questions as the lesson progresses, and requiring the children to sug gest words and sentences. Part of the time is spent in marching and singing, and in no instance is the round of instruction allowed to become irksome. BBWEFITB OF TBB BTSTKit. It is said, by some persons, that a child real y earns little or nothing at the Kindergarten If this were trne, it is not a matter of impor tance that a child so young should learn much of anything. The object is simply to prepare t'le mind for study and application, which it does to a wouderfnl extent, and in this parti nlar its benefits are unquestionable. It is an admitted fact that when a child leaves the Kindergarten and enters a higher school he or she makes much faster progress in study than a child of the same age who has never received instruction by the Kindergarten system. Here they acquire knowledge without the effort of study and when a position is reached whieh demands mental exertion their young minds are equal to the additional strain. The sys tern delights the scholar because it is a pleas ing diversion, and a sufficient occupation ot the youthful mind. There are also exercises in vocal music which the children, nnder the efficient management of Mrs. Warren Wasson, take great interest in and make rapid progress The school is managed by Miss Bibcock with Mrs. Wassoo as her assistant, and no mother will hesitate to send her child there if she but pays the institution a visit. AMUSSMENTS. Tbb Davebb Tuorpa. The D.ivene Com binatioa left for Reto last night, and the Big Four will doubtless come baek here on Satur day night to repeat their suceesful and taking nrfariiianca of Wednesday eveniaz. The i - - - - desire to see them again in their local speciali ties is very strong, and they eonld depend upon a house which, in the language of the drama, would be a "corker." The troupe has done very well in Nevada, and clean np about $3,000 as profits of the trip. The com bination is a good one, aad almost any one of the special features is worth the price of admission.

About ons of the surest gambles on the stock list just now is the North Noonday and Orient. The rival com panies are engaged in a law suit, and the de cision will send one er the other of the stocks up several hundred per cent. For iiTitanee: Noonday is $2 60 and Orient 40 cents. If a man purchases 100 shares of Orient for $40 aad 25 shares of Jforth Noonday for $62 50, he will save his stakes if Hoonday wins and make a good tarn if Orient gets away with the suit.

There is talk of getting up a base ball, foot ball, cricket and bicycle club in Carson next Spring, each ene of which will not be afraid to meet any organ ization in the State. Careen has every facility for the practicing ef such games and good roads offer every inducement to the lovers of bicycle riding. Jast at present there are several hundred boys who play "scrub games" of base ball, but none of the members of the juvenile clubs understand anything about the science ef the tame. There are scores of ex cellent players here and their is plenty of ma terial for a crack nine. The advocates of ericket are found chiefly among the Jfnlish and Cornish residents, aud there are several notable bowlers and wicket keepers in the city. Cricket is by far the most scientific ball game in existence, and bears about the same relation to base ball as chess does to checkers, or good champagne to Oregon cider. Tbe.level sward on Tread way's ranch would be just the place to pitch the wicket and there is plenty of room for the f tinning hits to square leg or long field which iMake the game bj attractive to experts. Foot ball is getting to be quite the rau;e iu California and the old fashioned way of heavy kicking has been supplanted by a scientific style ef play which makes the game very interesting to spectators. The rajfe for bicycle riding has broken out in the East to such an extent that the avenues leading to some of the large cities are constantly crowd ed with men on wheels. An Olympic Club might be formed in Carson and a good gym naaium furnished at a trifling expense. Such an institution is greatly needed. The rifle teams are practicing hard and the Carsen Guard propose to ive the Comstock shots a hard tussle next Full for the picnic meduis. Thb Caesob Exchange. Not one man in a thousand really knows how to select the right brands of liquors. It takes a keen com mercial sacacitv to know what customers really want.

Editob Afpbal: Yeu will oblige me by con tradicting tfce notice in the Daily Nevada Tribune of last evening, statins; that our troupe closed its engagement on Tuesday evening, which the editor himself knows to be an un truth, as he came te my apartments himself to enquire if I wanted an announcement put n his paper last evening. Thinking it was not worth while 1 declined, lie went away muttering to himself all the way down stairs. Although I could not tell what he was saying it was easy to understand what he meant. He knows very well that we had more than one programme aud that the public were not disgusted as the receipts ef the second night show, and furthermore we were requested to give a third performance which we did with a great change of programme, and consider it very childish for him to tell such an untruth about me because I would not give him a chance te earn a few dollars. The receipts of last night's house give quite a correct estimate of the influence of an ama teur newspaper iu this intelligent community. W. M Davbbb. Manager of the French Troupe. Carson, February 12, 3t. Akrkstbd fob FoRflitnT. Yesterday after noon U. S. Marshal Asii came m front Battle MoBBtain with J. A. Joaes, charged with forgery. It appears that he telegraphed to a man named Ware in Michigan and signed his son's (L. G. Ware) name to a tiiepatch asking for $50. He then went to th hotel and reg istered as L. G. Ware, occasionally, ealiing at the post office for the expected money order. It finally came and he signed the receipt, for which he was arrested. The case will be tried in the U. S. Circuit Court in this city.
