The District Court, Hon. S. D. King, has been occupied for the past two days trying the case of O. P. Willis vs. Wells, Fargo & Co. for $494 due on a stock transaction. The plaintiff claimed that he deposited 50 shares of Mount Diablo stock with Welle, Fargo & Co. on a certain day to be sold, and that the defendants, threugh their authorized agent, on that day notified the plaintiff that his stock had been disposed of in the San Francisco Board of Brokers at the rate of $19 per share. At a later period the defendants to this suit ad vised the plaintiff that by a miscon struction of a cypher telegram received from their San Francisco correspondent they notified him (the plaintiff) f the sale f a larger quantity of stock than had really taken place : but that the sale on that certain date had only amounted to five shares. In the mean time the stock had dropped to a lower figure than quoted at the date of the al leged transaction. In charging the jury his Honor, Judge King, substan tially gave instructions that, in the event the defendants could not prove that the sale did not take place, to find for the plaintiff. After being out an hour, the jury rendered a verdict for O. P. Willis in the sum of $500, less $6 commission. The case is likely to be appealed. Another .Van. The murderer f John A. Barrett, whore name was given in the Appeal of yesterday as Nicholas Jennings, was Richard Jennings, a brother to Nicholas, or Dick Turpin, as Nick was generally called in California. Richard Jennings, according to the Grass Valley Tiding,, was a native of Pennsylvania, and had lived at Grass Valley from 1859 up to the time of his departure for Austin, a few weeks ago. The father and mother of Richard Jennings, as well as the no torious Nick, are now living in South Carolina. The father-in-law of the lynched murderer sent for the remains, which will be interred in Grass Valley, where Jennings left a wife and four children. Opera House. The entertainment at the Opera House last night, for the benefit of the Ladies' Library, was very well attend ed, and tbe volunteer participants ac quitted themselves in a manner highly satisfactory to the audience. It is to be hoped that these entertainments will be often repeated during the winter, for they are certain to receive the support of all classes in this community. Wtid for Sale.

(Juite a number of Carson ites will spend the holidays at San Francisco and other points in California. W. Ily. JJeane, who has been -suc cessfully auctioneering Manning's jeweJ- rv stock, in Virginia, is in the city. It is said that some of the best rifle shots of Virginia will be hero to-mor row to participate in the turkey shunt ing at Swift's. Lloyd Hawthorne, late purser of the steamer Governor Stanford, is in the city, but returns to Glenbrook, where he will winter, in a few days. The intelligence of the average Washoe Indian is not to be questioned. Members of the tribe are corning in from all parts of the country, in antici pation of finding richly filled swill bar rels during the holidays. The 12th of January has been set for j an official inspection of the Carson Guard, by Colonel F. C. Lord. It is to j be hoped that on that occasion our) militia company will make amorecred- j itable showing than did the troops f i Storey county a few days since. Mike Tovey says that II. C. Ward, formerly Wells, Fargo & Co.'s messen ger between this city and Bodie, has struck it rich in the mines near Boise City, Idaho. He is going to get mar ried after 65 years of bachelorhood, and is the owner of a substantial brick resi dence there. A few nights ago a game of cribbage for $1000 a side was played at Virginia, so says the Enterprise, boastingly. That's nothing, for scarcely a week passes that one or the other of the numerous Carson journalists does net win from $10,000 to $20,000 at a sociable game of poker. The operatic selections given last night at the Library entertainment by Messrs. Laughton and Owens, on violin and piano, were potpouris from Bo caccio" and "The Pirates of Penzance" respectively. The selections were ad mirably rendered and they formed splendid features of an excellent pro gramme. San Francisco papers charge all the way from $50 to $250 for "toney" mar riage notices ; the higher the social po sition of the contracting parties, the greater the figure. Carson papers gen erally receive a hunk of stale cake, which has in many cases done service at the grandmother's wedding, and a bottle of very cheap wine, for similar publications. Through a private letter from Wood River, recently received in Eureka, we learn of the death of Pres. Ward, which occurred at the former place. Pres. Ward was a brether of Hon. Thomas N. Ward, of San Francisco, and was an early resident of Aurora and for many years was in business in Pioehe. J. M. Benton has built a new and substantial ice house below the Mexican dam, which he has filled with this year's crop of ice, amounting to over 700 tons. Mr. Benton states that, in the twelve years he has been in the business, he never was able to gather much ice after the first freeze. This fact is probably known to very few hereabouts. Joe Shannon, a typo of the Comstock, was in town yesterday on oniciai busi ness. He is a strong Democrat, and thinks his party will carry the day next time. provided, they put up the right man. His party enthusiasm knows no bounds. When Hancock was nominated Joe struck work, pro cured a flag, and climbing to the top of Mount Davidson, flung it to the breeze. M. W. Hodkins, the live Glove Man, has received all the latest novelties in ladies', gent's and children's gloves and mitts, suitable for the holidays. Also full line of winter goods, all at the lowest possible price for cash. The at tention of the trade respectfully so I cited. d4 The. Barret Harder. All accounts show that the killing of John A. Barrett, by Richard Jennings at Austin, on last Monday night, was as j cold-blooded a murder as was ever com ! mitted. .Barrett was in the saloon of the International Hotel, when the man Jennings started a quarrel with him for some cause unknown. The quarrel soon ended and the rcuiter seeinad set tled ; a few minutes later Barrett asked Jennings up to take a drink. The two stood at the bar, and Barrett turned around, while waiting for the drinks, to talk to another person, whereupon Jen nings drew a Smith A Wesson self cocking revolver and fired three shots. One of them entered under the right shoulder-blada and struck the spinal column. Barrett was paralyzed, fell heavily to the floor, and died almost instantly. Barrett, it seems, did every thing h could to stave off the trouble. Barrett was generally liked, and his death was deeply regretted. He was i an industrious, respectable citizan, 31 ! years old, having a wife and two chil ! dren. lie Saved the Trains. ! A few evenings ago, as Albert F. ! Poole, a youth of 17 years, was walk ' ing along a road near Savin Hill, just out from Boston on the Old Colony Lino, he saw a wagon standing directly across the track. Poole struck a match, looked at his watch, and shouted to the team ster that within the next five-minutes three trains would pass that spot. The driver appeared to be confused or be fuddled. Poole at once decided to take matters in his own hands. He saw at a glance that the heavily-laden wagon was stuck hard and fast between the tracks, and that should a train come along from either direction great dam age would be done. He jerked off his overcoat and ran at the top of his speed to the station. There he procured a red lantern from the station keeper's wife, the only adult around, and ran down the track. The G o'clock "steam boat" train was due, but not in sight. Poole bounded along swinging his red light, stumbling, falling and regaining his feet until the welcome whistle of down-brakes reached his ear. Then turning he ran to stop an inward-bound accommodation train, which he barely succeeded in doing. The trainmen grumblingly put their hands to the wheels and removed the obstruction. In the morning papers next day Poole read that "three trains were brought to a standstill near Savin last evening by a drunken fellow with a red light." Still he had the satisfaction of feeling that but for his coolness and activity many lives might have been lost. Jefferson's ten rules : " Take things always by the smooth handle. We seldom repent of having eaten too lit tle. Pride costs more than hunger, thirst and cold. Nothing is trouble some that we do willingly. Never spend your money before you have it. Never buy what you don't want be cause it is cheap. Never trouble an other for what you can do yourself. Never put off till to-morrow what you can do to-day. How much pain the evils have cost us that have never hap pened ! When angry, count ten before i you speak ; if very angry, count a hun dred. For Kale or Rent.
