TEE NOB WSESX.7 OT,
WATPRPAT MAY 80, 1880 The Democrats, becoming alarmed at tlie large quantity of whisky being lent by the Kentuckisns to. Chicago for the Republican, and fearing that there will be none left for their boya to celebrate with in Cincinnati on the 22d of June, have sent agents to Kentucky to protest against this high-handed outrage and threaten to debar the Kentuckian from participating in the Cincinnati Conven tion if any more of the " double-copper distilled " goes to Chicago. W. EL Chandler, one of the shrewdest politicians in the country, writes that Grant cannot and will not be nominated. A Washington dispatch states that the theory of the Blaine mon, all of whom believes as Chandler does, is that Grant will not have success on the first ballot, and that after that there will be a general breaking up, Blaine will slide in. The Chicago fight is attracting more attention from the Democrats in the East than their own party issue. The Grant papers of California advise the delegates to Chicago to break their instructions and vote for the "Strong Man." How would it suit those papers if New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and other delegations, should break their in structions and vote for the Maine States man? which will very probably be the The N. Y. Mining ltecord, in a Keview of John Sherman's speech at the Cham ber of Commerce banquet in Now York, shows by the report of the Director of the Mint that Sherman overestimated the amount of silver in tho Treasury vaults by several millions. Tritle, Woadburn and Lewis would all like to secure the scat in the Senate to be vacated by Sharon. We learn from good authority that Sharon will not seek re-election, notwithstanding the Gold Hill News positive statement to the con trary. Last Sunday the local train of the Southern Pacific Railroad, which was loaded with excursionists from Santa Cruz on their way to a picnio at the big trees, jumped the track, injuring and killing a number of people. , In the prize fight between Paddy Ryan and Joe Goss, which took place near Fort Hamilton, New York, on the morning of the 24th, after a contest of eleven rounds Ryan was declared the winner. Ooss was thoroughly whipped. The suckling of the Standard, who is worrying considerably over the thinness of Bodie milk, remarks that if Bodio whisky was as weak as the milk is that town would be completely deserted inside of ten days. The National Republican Convention will assemble in Chicago next Wednes. day, the second of June, and it will not be very long till we know the name of the "dark animal" Missouri is for Tilden. A Professor Grimmer issues a pamphlet and asserts that the period from 1880 to 1887 will be one of universal carnival and death everywhere except on the Pacific Coast. Asia will be depopulated, Europe nearly so, and America will lose nearly fif teen million of her people. We are to have plagues, storms ana tidal waves, moun tains are to "toss their heads through the choicest valleys," navigators will be lost by the thousands, owing to the capricious deflexions of the magnetic needle, and islands will appear and disappear in mid ocean. AU the beasts, birds and fishes will be diseased, famine and civil strife will destroy most of the human beings left alive by the plague, and finally "two years of fire" 1885 and 1887 will rage with fury in every part of the globe. In 1887 the "Star of Bethlehem' will to appear in "Cassiopa's chair," the immedi ate result being unfversal war and por tentious floods and shipwrecks. North America is again to be involved in civil war unlets a "Napoleon" arises to quell it, but during these terrible days the Pa cific State will bo a veritable paradise of peace compared to the hellish strife that will be waged throughout the world. . Anthony De Costa of Fairhaven, Mass, owns an interesting old document, a deed from King Philip of Mount Hope, chief sachem of the Pokamankett tribe of Indians, conveying West's Island, in the township of Dartmouth (now Fairhaven), to John Cooks, his heirs and assigns rever. Part of the deed (which is en grossed upon vellum and the writing legible) ' has been cut off, so that the amount of land conveyed or consider ation received can not be ascertained. The deed was read in open court at Ply mouth, Mass., on the 28th of August 1866, and has attached the "mark' of Philip and other Indians. New York World: A young man who has recently taken a wife says he didn't find it half so hard to get married as ha did to get furniture. Ex-Governor Joseph E. Brows ot Georgia, has been Appointed United States Senator from that State, vice Saardofc, resigned. LATEST NEWS BT MAIL. Chic ago, May .25. The Inter-Oceana Washington reporter las interviewed Mr. Garfield, who show ed that the instructions of the State Con ventions instruct only delegates at large, they have no binding force over district delegates who are selected by districts, or by representatives of districts in con vention. He knew of no combination to break down the instructing rule at Chi cago, but felt confident that it would be broken. The rity is alive witli politi cians. They are ho far almost exclusively Grant's friends, and the Grant meeting on Wednesday promises to bo a great affair. Much interest is felt here in tho movements of tho district delegates from Illinois, twenty in all, and for Blaine. Their rights will be vigorously presented in the National convention. The fight promises to bo a sharp and prolonged one. The convention is to last tlu-eo days. The Greenback headquarters have been opened at the Parker House, in this city, with Ceneral B. F. Butlor in charge. It is stated that ho is really hero in tha interest of Grant.

Chicago, May 25. The following card from Hon. II. B. Far well is published: SntiKGFiKLD, May 24. To tho Repub licans of Illinois: By tho personal and desperate exertions of Senntor Logan; tho Commissioner of Internal Revenue and his Collectors, and by the disgraceful interference of national officials in the primaries and county conventions, Gen eral Grant has apparently carried Illinois by tho contemptible majority of 38, with Cook county unrepresented. If the whole 92 of the Cook county delegation had been admitted, the vote would have been 54 against Grant. If the 56 imcon tested delegates from Cook county had been allowed to vote there would have been 13 majority against Grant. The convention was packed from its organi zation. Tho Chairmau was ordered to recognize certain persona. The debate was cut off and parliamentary law neglect ed or overruled, as the exigency required What is so meagre a majority in his own State worth to General Grant? The anti Grant districts have appointed delegates, and will present them at Chicago. Logan and Garcelon stand as the political burg lars of tho time, and Logan's crime against liberty will in the end bring him no more SXils than were won by Gar celon. s 1'nn.ADELruiA, May 25. Moses Taylor, of New York, has filed a bill in equity against the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad and Coal Com pany's for a receiver. The Plaintiff holds a hundred thousand dollars income mortgage against tho railroad, secured by an assignment of a bond to the coal com pany iu the sura of $20,000. He sets forth that both will make money with the revival in tho coal and iron business. Judge McKcnnan granted tho request, appointing Kdwiu W, Lewis, F. B. Gowan and Stephen A.

Score yet one more for the intelligent compositor in the Cincinnati Commercial oluce. He couldn't appreciate the sen. timcntal tendencies of a reporter who, writing up a female seminary commence, ment, spoke of the "sweet girl gra. duates," and set it up "servant eirl era. duates." The reporter's eirl don't know him any more, and be feels murderous. STATE ITEMS. Roads to C'omo are iu good condition. The Keflex man, of Ward, claims to hold only a quart. The Courier says the hay ranchers in the vicinity of Belmont will cut large crops this season. The main tmmel of the Martin White Company, savs the Reflex, is now in a distance of 1500 feet.

The oration will be delivered by Mayor Stephens, and the poem will be by Col. R. H. Taylor. Ward Reflex: The placer mines of Osceola have been sluicing for a week past. They calculate on about three week's water and aro reported to be work ing lively. The Leader says the ghostly visits of a departed siren aro exorcising the fair resi dents of Buell Street, Eureka, and wierd tales aro told of mysterious happenings in that quarter. Tho young ladies of the seminary at Reno amuse themselves riding on drays. We expect soon to hear of them straddl ing broomsticks and galloping through the streets oi that town. The prospects of Como are improving. Very rich float is constantly being found, and where there is so much prospecting going on tho ledge from which it comes is liable to be discovered at any moment. JUUo Independent: .Men often jump at conclusions. So do policemen. Lane recently jumped at the conclusion of a tramp that ho saw sticking out oi a nay- stack, and created considerable disturb ance for tho tramp. The Times-Keviow says that many worthless mining claims in Tuscarora District have been offered for sale and sold in the East, by worthless fellows, thereby causing the district to be de nounced as a fraud. Eureka Sentinel: Tho following busi ness was transacted at the postoffice yes terday : Thirty-one money orders issued, amounting to SS30.7, and "1 letters ree istered. This is about an average day's business lor the otlice. The water encountered in the Yellow Jacket by the drill sent down seventy feet from the bottom of the shaft was at the temperature of 170 decrees, within 28 do grees of boilinsr point hero, and the flow was so strong as to force everything out ot the anil nolo. Enterprise: On the Comstock a flow of an inch of water is estimated as being equal to from twelve and one-half to four teen gallons per minutes, superintend ant Boyle, of the Alta, who has made many experiments, says thirteen gallons por minute is in round numbers about as near as it can be figured. The Esmeralda Herald is responsibl for tho subjoined: A man in town has spent several months in training two gophers to prospect for hiin. They are so well taught that they will burrow in any spot that he designates. W hen they have thrown out a quantity ot dirt he pans it, and thus he believes he will be able to prospect the whole country at a nominal cost, and lind placers a any exist. Virginia Enterprise: In San Francisco they have a rumor to the effect that newlv-formed Eastern and European vn dicate is buying up the control of the mines, to worn tnem on more economical principles. It is supposed that their idea is to work all the mines in connection with the Sutro Tunnel Company and through their tunnel. Edison has been, for a long time, at work on his electric lamp, and has at various times seemed to be at the point of success. . But no practical results have yet followed, though tho patient dis coverer significantly says to an impatient public. "You lustwait." It is now re ported that J. H. Guest, a Brooklyn electrician, has discovered a means of perfecting the lamp. " He does it," the Eaclo savs. " by simplifying its construe. tion and so disposing mercury at the point of fusion round the platinum wires that in spite of all sorts of cracks the air cannot enter. This solves the prob lem of the electric lamp, which we hop- 1 r I . i . i.: II oeiore long w see su uuuva ujjcrwuu. The first day after aLeadviUe man who had always been too poor to afford any thing; but whiskey straight, struck it rich he went in for mixed drinks and called for lemonade with a stick in it. And when he had his class refilled, he said "Mr Bartender put in a whole woodpile win Time, PRECISELY TO THE POINT, , Pay as you go. Progress comes by labor. Passion impedes; opinion guides. Prejudice is the child of ignorance. Teople are known by the company they keep. I'assioii neutralizes both strength and reason. Pride and poverty usually reside in the same house. Prefer to be a doer of wisdom rather than a professor of it. Persons who fret more than they work can never be happy. People who do mean acta throw poison into their own well. Physical life is a stale of growth or preparation for spirit life. People who have tho most of gravity hare the least of anything else. People are always ready to assist those who need no assistane. Promises made in affliction require a better memory than many possess. Perseverance, to receive a rich reward, must have an object worthy of it. Pain, like a trusty sentinel, guards every avenue leading to the citadel of life, and by it we aro forewarned of danger. Pride is better than gold, for it keeps one out of the gutter; but vanity is the gate that opens the way to failure and urn. Pride of mind is the attribute of an honest man; pride of manner is that of fools; pride of birth and rank is often the pride of dupes. . The baby question:, Spank or spoil? . NEW TO-DAY.

The undersigned takes practical approbation which he he, on account of the hard work, energy, enterprise and capital which he has so freely given to his business, en courages him to make a new effort in a special line. There are few men who do not occasionally smoke cigjirs, and there are many who smoke cigars regularly. For many years it has been a standing complaint among smokers that a man coma not get a good cigar for less than 25 cents and that even when he paid that amount the result would uneii dc mat no cucr not' get a really first-class article After a long study of the subject, in which I was aided hv many years experience in handling cigars, and by consult- IUIU.UW vcijr oust uuuiormes on tne subject, among whom were some of the largest manufacturers in the world I feel enough confidence to assert that I have solved the problem of "A Good Cigar at a Moderate Price " If I had not full confidence i smoking.public I should never havo o r th ki and expense necessary to achieve this result. I believe tnat lew will object to a short walk up Meadow Valley street, when they know that, at tho end of that walk, they can get an article which will suit the taste. I propose hereafter to sell for 12ic. each, Good Cigars. I shall have but oxe kind at that price. I propose to sell a Fair Cigar for 5 Cents. I shall have but one kind at that price. T. O. POUJADE.
