M .MAY APKIL 4. 1M THANKFULNESS. The Good Book, too good to be in the Ap fbal'h library, and coiuequently uot inuie diately available, contains any amount of terse, sensible paragraphs on thankfulness, (n the olden time, when men tjare favors with & willing heart and others received with thank fulness, the memory of the recipient was the longest. A good many hold that the world is jetting less geuemns dnily. If this is a fact and the Appbal doesn't argue that it isu't it is because generosity finds such poor en couragement. Men are naturally kind of heart, and ready to act for the benefit, of their fellows; but they filially get sick and disgusted with the eld ingratitude they receive in re turn, and stop giving and helping. There is a gentle touch to the hand of charity, and it likes not the feeling and texture of cold and irresponsive flesh. Charity get9 all the pay it wants in the thankfulness and gratitude of those upon whom it bestows favors; but the milk of huin.'tn kindness turned to the gall of disgust, is worse if anything than the love of woman turned to hatred. Many of the men to whom the world points as close, stingy and morose, have beeu m;iJe so by the conduct of thankless wretches whose rule of life is to fas ten the fangs of ingratitude into the hand that deals them bounty. Some nieii are ever ready to accept a boost in the world, but if they ever attain eminence, they forget every one who ever did them a favor. Dumas made it a rule never to lend money. He explained on the ground that he wished to make' as few ene mies as possible. There was once a New York jockey who was astonishingly successful in his business, and when asked how he managed so well, replied that he stopped doing favors for people, and success followed. Early in life he had helped everybody who needed help and got his pay in hard hits. At last he was sensible enough to reverse his tactics and made friends and fortune. No wonder that men become mean and ungenerous when they re flect that nearly all the dirty, contemptible tricks that they have been served with, ema nated from persons who were indebted to them for favors. No wonder that breasts grow cold and hearts callous when they are contin ually getting stones in return for bread. Most man are born with sympathetic feelings, and if they lose their sympathy it is because they have been robbed of it. These reflections are not pleasant and perhaps have their well-spring in the cold, drizzly weather that spreads the pall of its gloom ovor the Appbal ttice, and the whole of Carson just at present. Th readers of the Appeal have been accustomed of late years to some sort of a sermon on Sun day morning, and the present occupant of the pulpit regrets that the Capitol Church does uot resound with the eloquence of the gifted tongue which once furnished the preachments, and so without attempting to make his voice reach so far, or his words sink as deeply, pre sents the truth in a plain way, and begs the congregation to remember that there is no man so stupid, but that in floundering through a subject he will extract some truth from it, worthy of being stored away and pondered over, by much better men than himself. Let no man or woman, however, within the reach of this discourse lay the false unction to their soul, that ingratitude is an excuse for mean ness. Better bestow fruitless bounty upon a thousand thankless, scampish scallawags, who in return for daily charities would play poker upon your tombstone, than to withold your sympathy, loving kindness and trade dollars from one needy or deserving man or woman. If yon fail in getting good interest on your in vestment in this world, there is a big bank only a few years away from here where gold bullion is being piled up for you every time you do the square thing by your neighbors, and every time they do the mean thing by you only adds to the pile; a place "where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, aor thieves break through and steal." REGARDING TEACHERS. "Our teachers need watching as well as the children." This remark, which was officially made at the meeting held on Friday evening to take some action in relation to re-establish ing the Kindergarten, has given rise to con siderable discussion. If true, it is a point of vital interest in our public schools, and if un true (the writer certainly thinks it is), it does our teachers great injustice, and thev should be vindicated. Those to whom is entrusted the education of our children, whose influence, even more thantthat of the parents, moulds and directs their lives, should be faithful and honest in the discharge of every duty con nected with their calling, and should never need watching. Such an imputation, there fore, calls for a public denunciation of the assertion ; and being the only teacher present at the meeting that evening, I take up the gauntlet, and da not hesitate to say that as a' class, teachers are as fully alive to their responsibilities and everything connected therewith as any other class of persons, and I hold the teachers of Carson are not the ex ceptinn. There are, no doubt, many fully qualified to give instruction who, having little experience, would de better to take the place of assistants for a time and learn to teach, a$ in the Normal school, receiving compensation accordingly ; while these who assume the re sponsibility for the formation of character, for the order and for the progress of the school, should be amply remunerated fur their ardu ous duties. Even if I had nothing at stake, I should feel that these few utterances were due my co-laborers in the profession, and I consider this a sufiicient apology foJ he above it marks. 11. K. C. There is nothing new in the controversy between the V. & T. R. R. and the Mechanics' Union. The Gold Hill Aru- of last night has the following : In the controversy between the Mechanics' Unio. and Superintendent Yerington the gen era public is more interested than either par ty, and either or both will be held strictly re sponsible for any infamy that may result to the prosperity of the country. Labor can be come as detrimentally aggressive as capital, and neither can trample rough shod over the rights of the people with impunity. Mutual consultation and concession, with a view to the general benefit of the couitnuuity at large, is the only legitimate course to pursue. A Novel Book Reviewed. A San Fran- "cisco publisher sent a spick span new copy of Miltuu to a Bodie editor the other day. llie reat man, whose labor, prior to taking charge of an influential mountain journal, had been principally confined to writing police items for the metropolitan papers during the Win ter, and taking excercise iu the harvest fields in Summer, heaved a weary sigh as the office boy hsnded him the volume, and remarking bitterly: "More new books to review, I sup pose," took out his tobacco knife and pro ceeded leisurely to cut the virgin pages. "Milton, Milton," he said musingly ; "some New Yorker, I suppose; well, here goes for to morrow's edition, anyhow:" "We received yesterday a copy of John Milton's poems from the enterprising house of X. X., San Francisco. The book opens with a long yarn about 'Paradise Lost.' He very improperly commences with a descrip tion of hell, a topic lii.it is never mentioned in polite circles of this camp, and gives a most thoroughly absurd pen-portrait of the devil. This person he pictures as many rods in length, while the best authorities on the sub ject have likened him to a goat. He goes on to tell of a fiht with anuels, wherein the devil, as a matter of course, nuts the worst of it, be inn from the very start the under dog in the fiijht. This is quite enough fur us. John Milton would do better to return to his legit imate newspaper sphere. He may be able to describe a masquerade ball, or a street row, but in our opinion he is a very poor poet." "This will do for Milton," said the editor, as he passed the copy to the foreman and turned with a sigh of relief to the perusal of a reported strike iu South Bulwer. MISCELLANEOUS. Some Tricks of Painters Apells, from whom so many "ben trovato" anecdotes in connection wilk art are derived, is reported to have painted a basket of fruit so accu rately that birds came and peeked at it. It w.howevcr, somewhat doubtful whether this may be accepted as evidence of the artist's skill, when we consider how easily duped are these members of the feathered tribe w ho mistake a elumsily constructed scarecrow for a live peasant, or a lump of chalk for a new-laid egg. A far bet ter instance of etill life painting is furnished by the story of (jeorge Moreland, who, bemg unable to pav the reokoniug at an inn, where the thriftless artist had halted during his vagrant wander ings, boat a hasty retreat by a low window. On the landlord entering the deserted chain ber, he beheld upon a table what appeared an untouched meal of hisfraudulent visitor, but which was actually a painted represent ation of the food with its corresponding plates and dishes. The landlord, at first much aggrieved by the non-paymf nt of his bill and the damage done to his furniture was easily appease! when a certain connois seur, who happened to call at the inn, offer ed to purchase the painted table for a price which more than compensated the owner. Fiddles, flies, dead game and other objects nave been imitated with such fidelity as to be regarded by all persons beholding them as original or natural productions, and in a Church on the Continent (I think at Genoa) there is a wall so cunningly painted as to lead the spectator to believe that he is gaz ing, not npon aflat surface, bat upon a con tinuation of the sacred interior. George W. English, Treasurer of Bord en town, N. J., committed suicide by hanging on the 1st instant. Miss Florence Nightingale is a great in valid and rarely leaves her room; yet there are few busier women iu the world. She is never idle. The Olympic Theatre property, New York, has been sold at auction to Jacob Rothschild for $132,000. After May 1 a business build ing will be erected on the present site of the theatre. A New York dispatch states that many branches of business have advanced wages from twenty-five to fifty cents per day. The 'longshoremen have struck against the non Unionists. Theodore Tilton offers his Brooklyn home for sale for $9,500. The property is mortgaged for $7,000 to the heirs of the Hon. John Woodruff, formerly member of Congress from New Haven. The Supreme Court of Iudiana has decided that the legal name of a person consists of .one Christian name and one surname, and that inaccuracy in a middle name does not invali date a legal document. The Boston Journal says: There appears to be a good deal in the E.lmunds move pen'. No one need be surprised if the Vermont Senati r receives half the vote of New England at Chi cago on the first ballot. M.

Sixty million dollars is the estimated cost of the projected Euphrates Valley Railroad, which is intended to faciliate the intercourse of England with India. The road will be over a thousand miles in length, and very difficult to build. John P. Smith was sent to the Indiana State prison for whipping his wife, who at once set about getting him pardoned.
