A squaw sat down on the curb in front of the postotlice in Austin, Nev., and, unrolling a bundle of calico, commenced the manufacture of a dress. In less than au hour the dress was finished, and putting it on over her old clothes, the squaw polled out a pin here, a peg there, mn(j untied a string in another piftCe, made one step, and, presto ! the old clothes lay in the gutter.

The difficulty here has been called a riot, but that waa a misnomer. It waa an attack in three separate columns by nezroes upon the city. The caus of this attack can be sta ted in a few words. For six months herifl eter ; (rosby (colured) has been excising the f auctions ot the office without paying given a legal bond. The Board of County Su pervisors refused to order him to give the regular bond and the time drew on to pay the countv taxes some $200,000. The chancery cierk waa without any bond whatever, and under an indictment for embezzle tnent aud forgery, as was his pre decessor, Cardoso the present State Superintendent of Education. CHARGES AGAINST THE SHERIFF. Notwithstanding hi indictments, the sheriff was notoriously packing janes, and three weeks ago the county records, bearing evidence of the guilt of the officials, were stolen from the courtbouse. The Tax payers' Association, composed of the best citizens and property-bold era, held a meeting last Wednesday, and in a body went to the court house and demanded the resignas tion of the sheriff, the chancery clerk, the treasurer, and the coro ner. The sheriff only waa found, and he resigned. The Sheriff then went to Jackson to consult with Governor Ames. On his return on Saturday a card appetred on the streets, anil w;ts circulat tl through out the county, xigued by Crosby, calling on ilepublicans, white and black, to come to his aid and sus tain his position. Crosby publicly and through the papers denied the card , yet on Sunday rumors came that negroes were arming and oath ering at different points to march on the city, but little credence was given to the report then. THE ATTACK. On Monday morning at 5 o'clock the alarm was given that the neijroetj .. v . V nvia Dcintl Ue rectious. lbe white citizens armed ind organized in companies. At 9 o'clock a g Mieral alarm w is given, and a detachment of oitiz -n sol liery marched out of Grove street. and, near Point Lookout, just inside the city limits, met a body of -UU negroes. The commander of the itizens warned them to disperse, when the negroes replied, "Wo have cotue for a hgh', and we are going to have it. cinng then commenc ed. The negroes were soou routed. with a loss of six killed, several wounded, and some prisoners taken. Among the latter was Audrew Owens, the negro commander. FIGHTING ON THE OLD OR0UND. A few minutes after this engage ment a detachment of citizens, sent out on the Jackson road on the northeast side, encountered a large body of negroes strongly entrench ed in the old Federal breastworks just west of the monument where remberton surrendered. I he faght here lasted an hour, and was the most sanguinary fight of the day The infantry in front engaged the negroes, while the calvary charged their flunks. The negroes fled in wild disorder, and twentyhve killed and wounded. Oliver Brown (white) was also killed. THE THIRD BATTLE. About the same time three com panies ol citizens met zou negroes on Cherry street, south, anl with a yel', charged on them, driving them from their strong position on the hill with light loss. The calvary at other points dispersed the ne groes, and by noon the war waa over. Sheriff Crosby was arrested ear ly and put under guard at the court house. On Monday night an effort was made to lynch him, but the leed was prevented by the white S v fit 1 1 guard, un luestny aiternoon tne funenl proces.isn of Oliver Brown, while passing bnyder s Bluff, near the city, wa fired into by negroes, and Win.

A Wed to Farmers' Girls. It was intira ited in a former article addressed to the boys, that the girls might expect something especially for tl:em. It is generally expected that the daughters of fanners will help their mothers. Jf they do not, there are at least two reasons which may be given one is t!ia the mothers prefer to do the work themselves, and let the girls do nothing, and the other, that the latter are unwilling to go into the kitchen or dairy. Mow, there is wrong in both if it is true, as above stated. There is nothing more conducive to health, than the ordinary house-work upon a farm. 1 say ordinary because anything that involves heavy lift ing should never be required of a wotsitn. The art of making good bread is a rare accomplishment, and requires as much good sense aud opplicaton hb the ability to play the guitar or piano forte. gain, after the fiousework is done for the day, much can be done by the p iris towards cultivating flowers in -the , door-yard. In a villago or city, the lots are often so small that no room is afforded lor flowers- , Oa the farm there is al ways room enough, and no excuse can be offered why they should not be cultiui ed. There is not only tne satisfact.on of seeing the beauti ful mOumls and borders, butthe care requisite in tmining them has a tendency to cultivate to correct taste in everything cUe. Jf the front-yard looks nicely, the house will be upt to present the same ap pearance. Flowers outside will stimulate a tast" for pictures inside the house. There is nothing which proudi-es so favorablo an impression on a passer by. :s to see flowers growing in iront of a farm house. house can be m ide to resemble a city residenee better th in to devote : space to the cultivatnm of flowers and ornamental ehrub-s. Aj;ain, there is no belter way for the girls to render tin-f.irin home attractive to their brothers," than to secure their concurrence in the cultivation of a flower garden. A taste lor flower garden. A taste for flowers, will te d to render the boys more gertle, and fiiter companions for their bisters. They will beies dis posed to wander off upon the hillj with gunitthaud, if the young ladies will seek to render their home at tactive. Much might be added to the fore going remarks bu: this article is already too long for these columns. The bubject be resumed in a fu ture number, and these cursory remarks will be closed by quoting the saying of some writer in ad dresssing girls : 'Love your father and help your mother.' Take Time to Best. Most men and woraon must keep in the traces, and keep pulling Uie year round. All the more, there fore, it is their duty to take thing; easier as the hot weather comes on. Take longer rest at noon. Put on less steam when you are at work. Snatch - a Sunday now and then trom the middle of the week? You can't ' You can. People find time to be sick and to die. They can just as easily find time to rest aud keep well. All does not des pend on finishing that dress or fenc ing that field ; on ' putting up " so much fruit or catching so many customers. Better that the chil dren should wear old clothes than that their mothers should be liid aside by a fever. Better that the corn crop tea little lighter than that their whoiild bo no one to bars vest it. Put up the store-shutters earlier at night ; prepare plainer meals in the kitctun. Take a noon day nap yourself, and give your em ployes a chance to go a fishing of an afternoon now and then. That on- y is duty winch the Lord biya upon us, and lie is not so hard a muster as we sometimes suppose. A Discomfited Deal Head. An editor, b-mg importuned fjr theater tickets by a well known dead-head at last give him the fol. lowing letter to the business mana ger of one of the principal theaters: My Ueari nend I send to yoa a lunatic who has tormented me for two hours for tickets; but beware of him, for he is very dangerous. His family usually keep hi in in charge of a faithful attendant, but to-day he has managed to escape. I think he is armed. Yours, etc. The unsuspecting D. II. presented this note at the theater, and was aston ished to find the manager brandish a chair, order him t be off, and roar for the fireman to bring the hose and give him a ducking. The victim went down stairs .r steps at a time, and has ever been profoundly amazed at the reception he met with.
