The following tetter we take from the Sun Francisco Chronicle of tbe 1st. To tbe Editor of the Chronicle Sir: Allow me to say through your papr th.it Ismto McMnnua, Jerry S.-oan William Donne and Charles A. Newman murdered my brother, Benjamin 'Holland, on tbo liOili of June lunt, on the Moapu Indian lteservatiou, southeast Nevada. They wore arrested by the loonl authorities of Liucola oouuty, Nevada, and turned over to the Uuited States to be tried at Car sou City, They were indicted by the United 8tat-s Grund Jury for murder in the first degree, and whoo their trial came on in Court tbe question of jurisdiction was sprunrt and argued by the attorneys ou both Hides. Judge Hilyer rendered a decision that tbe United States Courts had no jurisdiction iu tbe mutter, and by request turned the murderers over to Sheriff Swift (it Carson. Tue author ities of Linooln oouuty refused to pay tbe eipmi3fj of returning tbe prisoners to their county, tjr trml, and Judge rr.il.yer refused to mase an order rum und ine tbem back to tbe United States Mar sha1, with instructions to return the prisoners to ths Sheriff of Lincoln oouuty, out of whoso hands they had been taken. Thus the mutter was man aged, and in order to bring the murder ers to justice I have expended a large amount of money to send them back to Lincoln county. Tbey were indicted there by the Grand Jury, and their trial took pluce last week. The Jury brought in a verdict of acquittal, to the surprise of every one in 1'ioche even the do fendants and their attorneys were sur prised. They are under indictment in tbe same Court for another murder and will be tried some time next mootn. I have heard that tbe same parties, or some of them, are wanted somewhere in southern California, in case they are not hung in Pioche. I hope this will serve as a notice to all persons concerned, that they may know where these men can be found, and that tbey will be taken from Pioche and tried for other murders aud crimes ihey have committed, iu case they are cleared iu the trial to come off next mouth. They are murderers aud thieves beyond all question, and no greater out rage oould be done than to turn them loose again upon the publio highway to kill and rob as they have done. None of us are safe with such men running at large, and I do earnestly trust they will be brought to justice iu some other piaoe if not iu Lincoln county My brother was a good man, and leaves brothers, Biators, children and numerous friends to mourn his loss. He was murdered in cold blood without cause or provocation, and I ask that the good people of our State will assist me in having the per petrators punished. I had the photo graphs of the murderers of my brother taken. Any officer desiring to see them in order to identify the parties can ad drtss nm at Sacramento. James Holland. Sacramento, December 29' h. A Nkw Pompkii. An interesting arch (Dolngienl discovery has just b en made in Italy, that of a buried town a new Pompeii unexpectedly found near Man freiloni i at the loot of Mount Uargango. A temple of Diaua was first brought 10 light, and then a portico about twenty meters in length, with columns without capitals, aud filially a necropolis oover iug 15,000 square" meters (about 3? acres), A lurge number of inscriptions have been collected, aud some of them have been sent to the museum at Naples. Tbe town discovered is the ancient 8i pontum of which strabo, Polyb us and Livy Bpeak, aud which was buried by au earthquake. Ton bouses are twenty feet below the surfaoe of the soil. The Italian Government has taken measuies to continue the excavations ou a large scale, livery day some fresh object of interest turns up. The latest is a mon ument erected in honor of Pompey after his victory over the pirates and a largo quantity of ooins in gold and cupper. Virginia Enterprise: John J. Dixon, of Reno, writes to inform us that we were wrong in saying, a few days sinoe, in an article on Pyramid Lake, that it was impossible to reach the top of the Freemont Pyramid. He says: It was scaled by two men of your city. One of these was Frank VV. Dixon, now amal gamator at tbe Omega tailings mill, and the other J.iojta Cranston. Carman at the Utah mine. Tbey went to the top of the Pyramid on tbe 15th duv of Feb ruary, 1877. They were about two hours in Betting to the summit of the rook They saw nothing of the Ueld-Blass and other things supposed to have been left ou tbe rock by Fremont. . 4 The St. Helena (California) S ) uoqu uiuain lniorms us that Cettillt? out frims nlinka at Ilia nlam. the valley, he lutely cut a redwood tree, seven iBet through aud 2j0 feet long, in whioh, at a distance of 18 inohes from the exterior, be found deposits of aoorns, evidently stored by birds long ago and grown iu by a foot nnd a half of solid wood. THE PIOCHE WEEKLY RECORD. VOL. XV. CALIFORNIA NEWS. Liureni Dellen:Hgne, a native of France, attempted suicide in Sau Fran cisco, by cutting his throat with a razor. Iu the vicinity of Sacramento every thing looks very favorable in which farmers aud orcbardiata are interested, and tbe prospects could scarcely be im proved upou. There is a Chinaman in San Jose who Bpeaks French and Spanish with the flu ency of a native, aud whose stock of English is equal to that of the average American, White geese in vast numbers have tuken possession of 800 acres of land on Grand Island, nnd aro feeding upon vol unteer growth of barley. Thsy have been shot in such numbers that nearly all the housekeepers in tbe vioiolty have Becured feather beds. Iu the neighborhood of Downey City, Los Angelos oouuty, there are Beveral thousand acres of rich land belonging to Michael Reese, most of which is unculti vated. Corn can be raised without irri gation throughout this vast track, and it grows so hixh that men ride through the fields and pull the ears from horseback. Tbe Mexicans who were exasperated at the baugiug of the robbers that raided Caliente last week, aud who have beeu gathering in Bakersneld since that exer cise of lynch law, have subsequently at tempted to burn tbe town. The Mexi cans hnvs sworn vengeanoe on the law and order people of BakersSeld, and pro pose to make trouble. It is expected that if tbe excitement continues the peo ple will have to take the trouble of driv ing the lawless element out, at the risk of their lives. S. F. Stock Exchange: Mayor Bryant is very courteous to all visitors, but there are times when the endurance of the strongest will give way. It is said now that when His Honor is seated in his of fice engaged in his municipal labors, if any misoniveous wag opens tbe door and shoutB, ' Here's Kearney," the Mayor kicks out convulsively and tears bis hair and prays that the cup may pass away from him, and that ths irrepressible Dennis may find in the "gem of the sea" the peaoe that he denies to the chief of ficer of the city. S. F. Call: A stranger rushed up to conductor Morton, of tbe Central Rail road, on Thursday, and told him that tbe President of the road wanted to tee him forthwith. The oar was then otosa to the offioe, and the oonduotor, in order to save time, handed his bell punch and about $5 worth of tickets to the stranger, and allowed tbe oar to proceed. Mr. Morton was not wanted at the office. When he overtook the oar, tbe man to whom he handed over the oompany.s property was not to be found. Tbe United States Branch Mint re sumed operations yesterday under tbe superintendence of Mr. Dodge. Only a snail number of changes have been made. The beads of departments and most of the men who serve uuder them are re tained, and such dismissals as bave taken place are diotated by a desire to administer the institution economically aud to keep within the appropriation of Congress. Tbe dismissals include 25 ladies und four men. Tbe salaries of the ladies were a little less than $i per diem, and ol tbe men not more than $5. The books of the retiring Superintendent bave beeu examined and everything louud satisfactory. The amount of sil ver received on deposit yesterday was 200.000 onnoes, and of gold 21,000 ounces. 8. F. Call, 3d. Another Thikvino Dodoe. The Cen- trul paciho Railroad Company has got ten unto itself a notorious name for its thievery aud unscrupulous actions. Dis crimination is one of its common traits; but we have now to add another item to the long list of outrages this people has suffered at its hands It has so com pletely bought the California L-gislature as to have a bill passed allowing tbe company to charge $1 25 per cord "stuinpuge" ou all woodcut on railroad land Aimed with this law tbey slap on the extra $1.25 before tbey move a stick of wood. The result is that wood will have to be marked that much higher be cause of the insatiate greed of this avar icious leech. Au opressed people can stand considerable, but when tbe limit is reached woo be to the offenders. Reno Journal. New Orleans Picayune: Tbe warlike people who are oounting on a Mexioan war are most likely reckoning without a Mexican host. The bad Americans and Mexicans who are disturbing tbe peace along the borders of the Rio Grande are agaiust all governments, and represent Dothing but orime. The Mexicans re ported as fighting in El Pbbo county, Texan, live mostly on the Texas side. If the Mexican Goverment is rightly under stood, it does not care bow soon they aro killed. Peaoe, and not wir, is wanted. Killing a Mexioan in Texas. for the fun of seeing him kiok, is not a war with Mexico. A man who takes tbe trouble of being President of Mexico should be reoogniz d. ls, r. shook nxanauge: An evening paper yesterday Btarted the story that Jim Keens is about to return from New York to take a band in boosting Opbir and Alta. We don't believe a word of it. The New York papers give out that Mr. Keene is a fixture there for the pre sent at leaBt. lie has taken a splendid house, set up carriages, etc., aud the Paoifio coast troubles him not at all. The rumor is set on foot, undoubtdly , in the dope of affecting ths market. PIOCHE, NEV., SATURDAY. JANUARY 12. WASalXGTO.N AND DOLLY SON. MADI. A oheerfal view of Washington is given in a story once told by Mrs. Madison to little girl, who now repeats it in Lip pincott's. "One day in Philadelphia," said Mistress Dolly Madison, "I was sitting in my parlor with a very dear friend, Mrs R. B. Lee, when in walked Payne Todd (her son) dressed in my calico bed-gowu. While we were laugh ing at Ibe figure he cut, tbe servant tbrew opeu tbe door and announced Geueral and Mrs. Washington. What to do with the dreadful boy I didn't know. He could not faoe tbe President in that garb. Neither oould be leave the room without meeting tbem, for the door tbey were entering was the only one. I made him orawl quickly mnder a low board settee on whioh I was sitting. I bad just time to arrange tbe drapery when Washington entered. After the courtly greeting and the usnal compli ments of the season, there came from under the settee a heavy sigh, which evi dently attracted the General's notioe. However, I only talked and laughed a little louder, hoping to divert his atten tion, when ah, met there came an outcry and a kiok that could not be ig nored. So I Btooped down and dragged Payne out by the leg, General Washing ton's dignity left him at once. Laugh! Why, he fairly roared. Ha nearly went into convulsions. The sight of that boy in that gown, all so unexpected, coming wrong end first from under my seat it was too much." The Republio of Honduras has ad opted tbe American system of free schools. Ten thousand members of mouastio orders have been expelled from the country, their property oonfisoated and their buildings turned into colleges; and six teachers sail shortly from New York for their missionary work iu this new field.
