'Ourt adjourned to July 31. - The effects of the intemperate articles about the Itaymoud & Kly mine, which have in the last few issues appeared in the I'ioche Record, has done both the company and the mine great harm. All the thirty-day drafts were paid Saturday last, and we understand that the collec tion of this assessment will wipe out all indebtedness but the mortgage. We hope the Record will be more circumspect m the future in its language, and give the Raymond & Ely Directors a liberal assist ance in straightening out present embar rassments, which have been brought about solely through their efforts to make tho mine a successful proposition for its stockholders. S. F. Alta. As to the articles which have appeared in the Record, and which the Alta terms intemperate, we certainly deny their being such, and when they were published, it was for the sole purpose of letting the Directors know, whom we thought perhaps were not awaro of the fact, how outrageous and utterly incom petent the affairs of the company were managed by tho party in charge of the works in Fioche, in the hope of pointing out to them the evil and assisting them in straightening out the affairs of the com pany, and whether tho articles published in the Record has worked injury to the company or not, there has been nothing published but tho truth, which the whole community of Fioche will vouch for, and our articles were very temperate too. However we are pleased to learn that the Directors of the company are doing their utmost to straighten out the affairs of the company, and if such is really tho case, we feel confident that everything will again be moving along smoothly at an early day. We might say a good deal upon this subject, and should occasion require it, will not hesitate to do so. Attempted Rapb. An attempt at rape was committed on Mr. Kiernan's little girl down in Meadow Valley Wash the other day. Kiernan had business away from his ranch, and during the day Mrs. Kier nan heard the girl scream and rushed out of the house to see what was the matter. She got to the place just in tinio to see Ferguson, the hired man, catch the girl and throw her down. Ferguson, on see ing Mrs. Kiernan coming, got up and run and got a blanket, threw it over a mail horse belonging to Col. Jennings that is kept at that station, and tied the country. Upon Kiernan's return home he was in formed of the circums'ances and he im mediately went in pursuit of Ferguson and traced him up to Desert Springs, but arrived thero two days after his man had departed for Beaver or Frisco. Kiernan's horse having given out he returned. A telegraph desciption of Ferguson has sent to both Beaver and Frisco, and he was arrested at the latter place. We now await to see whether the authorities of Lincoln county are going to do anything to bring this fiend to justice. The chances arc that they will not. Isdicted and Arrested.

Last Tuesday the town was thrown into a great state of excitement as dense vol umes of smoke and huge sheets of flames were seen issuing from the Hillside; but, as it was, about sixty cords of wood above the works bad caught fare, and from town, a person would suppose all the buildings were ablaze. Though at times the hoisting-works were greatly endan gered, and but for the wind veering in the opposite direction, and by the untir ing efforts of the men who worked nobly, the works would have been beds of ashes. Fortunately everything escaped the fire fiend, with the exception of the wood and portions of the car-track. Last week Henry Gargcls, an employe at the furnace, had two horses stolen from him. He immediately procured an animal and went in pursuit of the thieves, overtaking them about eighty miles northwest from here, on the old freight road. On Jargels coming upon them they fell down on their knees and sued for their lives. Obtaining such easy posses sion of his property, and taking pity upon them, Jargels did not mete out to the miscreants tho punishment they so richly deserved. The Hillside furnace is doing big work, running through about 45 tons of ore per day, and turning out on an average seven tons of bullion of the assay value of $125. Machinery, in connection with the oasters of the Bristol Company, to the amount of thirty tons, is expected in every day by the way of Eureka. A large patent whim, to be placed on the Mendha mine of the Hillside Com pany, is en route from below. The east ore-body on the Cth level of the Hillside has been improving greatly the last few days. The artesian well of the Bristol S. M. Company is down 200 feet, with 160 feet of water. A New Kind. One of our citizens, the other day, was observed sitting on a box, appearing to be gnawing something which he held in both of his hands. After he had been there for some time, gnawing at the article he held in his hands, he was ob to fall off of the box by several persons, as though in a faint, and the men rushed over to his assistance. They found that the man had really fainted and by his side laid a plug of tobacco, while teeth laid scattered around in all direction. The man was taken into the drug store and restoratives applied, and after two hours labor with him they brought him to. He stated that he had purchased a plug of tobacco of a certain merchant, recom mended as being a new kind, the very best, and while trying to bit,e a chew off, he pulled out all his teeth, and becoming exhausted in his efforts to secure a mouth ful of the weed, ha fainted. The plug of tobacco was dissected and in the middle of it was found several plies of ticking, perhaps a piece of the skirt of some dusky North Carolina belle who worked in the factory. He how chews fine-cut. Piochb School Census. School Census Marshal George T. Gorman, for Pioche School District No. 1, makes the following report as the returns of the school census of this district for the year jsau: JNumDeroi children between six and 18 years of age not attending school, total number of children as attending private school, 68; total number of chil dren attending public school, 115; num ber of children between 4 and 0 years of age, 44; number of children under 21 born in jNevatla, 242; number ot children between the age of 18 and 21 years of age, 11; number ot children under b years, 122; children between 6 and 18 years, 260; girls between 6 and 13 years, 119; boys between b and 18 years, 141. Concentrating Works. The train of the Nevada Central went down to Bui lionville Tuesday, conveying some work done at the Raymond k Ely shops for the making of three additional tables for Montgomery a concentrating works. With these three additional tables there will be seven at work, and if we are cor rectly informed, Montgomery will be able to concentrate at tho rate of seventy tons of tailings per day. He has met with great success so far in his concentrating operations, and he fully deserves it. The individual who carries the mail from Clover Valley to Shoal Creek, Utah, undertook to drive some cattle from the former place to the latter. Ha tied the mail-bag on the horse and drove him along alio, and after getting out a short wavs the horse started ou on his own hook, carrying Uncle Sam's mail-bag over the desert at lightning speed. Although several days has been spent searching for the animal with the mail on hi back, yet at last accounts he had not been found, Jaw Broken. Last Saturday morning M. C. Hazeltine had his jaw broken by an individual named Bayless. It is said Hazeltine wa standing at a bar in one of the saloons, when JUayless . came along, and without any provocation what ever threw old man Hazeltine on the floor and then deliberately stamped his face with the heel of hi boot, breaking the old man's jaw. No arrest made. For El Dorado. The recent report from El Dorado Canyon of rich strikes in mining property there induced a number of our miners to start for that place. Thursday Jim Giay, Nick Spargo and the Billy Cox left on three fiery and un tamed steeds for the canyon, and the chances are, with the animals they had, that they will have to foot it across the bo-mile desert. The first strawberries of the season ar rived here- Monday from, California, and strange as it may apnea, they were sold WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, April , 1SS0. Editor Record: During the waning hours of the present heated Congressional term it may not be uninteresting to the many readers of your journal to peruse a letter from this hot-bed of politics, rings and Botany Bay of dilapidated bummers and adventurous speculators. Congres sional proceedings, you of course receive from the daily published accounts given to the press aud a brief epitome of such are daily served to the newspaper reading public, but matters pertaining more par ticularly to Nevada are no doubt more acceptable to your subscribers than unin teresting items from foreign parts. The deficiency bills, star routes, appropria tions, railroad enterprises, canals and President making seem now to absorb the entire attention of the Solons who daily congregate under the dome of our National Capitol, while matters of greater importance are left over as unfinished business to be discussed at some future period. Before proceeding into a general routine of readable items, touching par ticularly upon matters of special interest to the citizens of your State, I will men tion that among the number of Nevada people here, outside of the Congressional delegation, may be mentioned Colonel I. Jennings, the veteran pioneer mail con tractor and proprietor of the lively little oasis in the desert, St. Thomas, Nevada. The Colonel has been among us for some weeks, diligently pressing the work for which he came, and surrounded by an ample horde of efficient assistants, bid fair to carry his point, though at an enormous expense. Col. Jennings has now a route from St. Thomas to El Dorado Canyon. To-day he has been to work on matters concerning the Moapo Reservation, and there has been a complete change made. Although business takes along time to be transacted in Washington, I will say that Nevada people can do matters up here as quick as any one. It is likely, before Congress adjourns, the last of June has been reached, as it takes them so long to do business. Colonel Jennings will bid adien to Washington in a short time. G. Delegate and Representative. Dave Cohn left Pioche Saturday last- to attend the Democratic State Convention, held at Winnemucca last Thursday, the 27th. He carried the proxies of the other delegates from Lincoln county and has four votes in the convention. Dave will also attend the meeting of the Grand Lodge of F. & A. M. of Nevada as a rep resentative of St. John's Lodge, No. 18, of Pioche. The Grand Lodge meeting will be held at Virginia City on the 11th, 12th and 13th of June. He is also a rep resentative of Pioche Lodge No. 23, I. 0. O. F., and the Encampment of Pioche, to their Grand Lodge meetings in Virginia City in June. Returned. Adolph Cohn, after an absence of two years in Europe, re turned to Pioche on Thursday. He looks the same Adolph as when he left, al though during his absence he has become a benedict. County Assessor Henderson alio returned on Thursday having been absent about six weeks, assessing the lower and outside portions of the county, traveling during liis trip over eleven hundred miles. He looks well and the trip appears to have benefited his health. Oliver Schaffer, who left here last No vember, has taken to himself a wife in Canada, was expected to arrive here last evening. The Result. We are indebted to David Cohn, delegate from this county to the Democratic State Convention, for a special despatch as to the result of the meeting ot that body. For Congress, Geo. Cassidy of Eureka. For Judge of the Supreme Court, C. H. Belknap of Virginia City. Delegates to the National Convention to be held in Cincinnati on the 22(1 of June, Ellis, Gorman, Stone- hill, Matt. Canavan, Haeerroan and bad' ler. Presidential Electors, Deal, Dennis and McFarnahan. Cradles. Mr. Spraker received dur ing the week a large assortment of cra dles. These cradles have been so long on their way hither that the infants they were originally ordered for have all grown up and married off and now have babes if their own, and the little cherubs will now nil the cradles ordered by their grandparents for their own infants. Masonic Aid Association. M J. Henley, General Agent for the North western Aid Association of Chicago, was in town three or four day during ths ast week soliciting the Masonic urder to come members of the Association. He left as agent in Pioche to attend that business Jos. Behr, of the firm of J. My ers & JJro. Ics Cream. During the . stiff cold weather of Tuesday a Mexican, with the cheek of a Government mule, was around endeavoring to seduce our citizen into purchasing that summer luxury known as ice cream, and at a time when the afore said citizens were bugging warm stoves endeavoring to keep on the cold. Freight. Large amounts of freight arrived yesterday for Jo. Eisenmann. D. C. Clark, and a number of our mer chants.

Miss May Miller and Miss Stella Andrews were examined last Saturday by a Board of Examiners and tho County School Superintendent, they having applied to be examined for the purpose of getting a primary grade cer tificate to teach in the public schools of Nevada.

Tho question of the export of frozen meat is seriously occupying public at tention in the Australian colonies. An official statement just issued shows that there are 6,000,000 sheep and 3,000,000 head of cattle in Queensland. This, after deducting the home consumption of meat, admits ot a weekly exportation ot 2,000 tons, provided the necessary ship ping facilities were available. Refriger ating works are to be immediately erect ed, and arrangements made to obtain the hipping necessary for tho requirements if the trado. A thousand sheen have been recently boiled down ior tallow at Rockhampton, and cattle are almost un salable.

A ton of gold or silver contains 29, 100 66 ounces. A ton of gold is worth 8002,875. A ton of silver, at the present rate per ounce, is worth about $32,000. A cubio foot of gold weighs 1,200 pounds, and is worth nearly 300,- 000. A cubio foot of silver weighs 600 pounds and, is worth about 10,000. The value of gold coin, bars and bnllion in circulation in the world is estimated at $3,500,000,000. This would make in a mass a twenty-five foot cube.
