MOKELDHNK HILL: SATURDAY, : : : : MARCH. 10, 1866. Eastern News. The Virginia Legislature adjourned on the 3d. Several of the conservative members of the Tennessee Legislature having resigned in order to defeat certain radical measures, Governor Brownlow has issued a proclama tion for elections to fill the vacancies. Ec ■quador has joined the alliance of Peru and «ali against Spain. More than 15,000 peo ple attended a Fenian meeting at Jones’ Wood, New York, on the 6th. The U. S. Treasury disbursements during the month of February were $47,927,000. Half a million dollars’ worth of cotton was destroyed in Hew York by fire on the 4th. Alexander Campbell, founder of the Campbellite religion -died on the 4th inst. Colonel Thomas J. Bowtrs, Assistant Adjutant General on Grant’s staff, en route for West Point with General Grant, was instantly killed by fall ing between the cars while attempting to get aboard, on the morning of the 6th. Infor mation has been received that the Acting Governor of Montana has called a State Con vention to meet on the 28th of March. It is believed that the President will veto the joint resolution admitting Tennessee. In the House on the sth, Stevens of Pennsylvania offered resolutions which were adopted, call ing on the President for information upon the following points: As to how many per sons worth $20,000 he has granted special pardons, with their names; how much of the enemy’s property was seized, and how much restored, and whether the claimants ever served the rebel cause; how much abandoned property allotted to the freedmen has been restored, stating particulars. It is considered certain that the Constitutional Amendment fixing the basis of representation will be defeated in the Senate. General Joe. Johnston is in Washington to testify before the Reconstruction Committee. Major Gen. Thomas has expressed the opinion that if protected and encouraged by a small Union force the loyal men in Tennessee would gain complete and permanent ascendency in that State in one or two years. A bill to estab lish telegraphic communication between New York and the West Indies has been reported in the House. Schenck’s amendment to the Military Appropriation bill, forbidding the appointment of cadets from the rebel States until the States have been restored by Act of Congress, was adopted after a lengthy debate —BO to 39. The Military bill then passed. General J. S. Fullerton has been appointed Privrte Secretary to the President. Moore, editor of the Rural Wew Yorker, Radical Republican, was elected Mayor of Rochester on the 6th, by 1,081 majority. Richardson, Republican, was elected Mayor of Oswego. Colonel McQuade, Republican, was elected Mayor of Utica, The Secretary of the Treasury has ordered an action to be com menced against General R. D. Muzzey, late Ftivate Secretary of the President, to recover $28,000 alleged to have been abstracted from the Recruiting Fund, while on duty at Nashville. The True American. —A new weekly paper of this name has been established in San Francisco, by Geo. C. Gorham, one of the ablest editors in the State. It sustains Congress on the Reconstruction question, and presents unanswerable arguments in favor of ex acting “ security for the future” before admitting to Congress the delegations from the rebel States. We take the following from the first number : Are the Rebel States indeed entitled to immediate representation in Con gress ? Can no guarantees be required of them that they will not try, convict and execute for treason every white pa triot in the South, who refuses to “go with his State? ” Must we restore to them the full civil control, because of some constitutional obstacle to military occupation of a conquered country ? Was the U. S. Supreme Court wrong in deciding that we were at war with belligerents, and restrained only by the Jaws of public war?' Was the late Chief Justice Taney less able to ex pound the law when it was a terror to the rebels, than he was ‘when he ren dered the Dred Scott decision ? The Court was unanimous. The Rebel States surrendered all their rights under the Constitution, and expelled the Federal Government from their limits. There was only room for one power. Now there is only room for one power, and that is, the power which could not be kept out by Lee. Time enough for State Governments to be erected and recognized, when loyalty to the Union oeasea to be a crime in the South. Deputies. —The new county officers have appointed the following deputies: Under Sheriff, W. F. Colton ; Deputy Sheriff, D. S. Bates; Jailors, George C. Peek and L. B. Matthews; Deputy Clerk, N. T. Noroross ; Deputy Recor der, H. M. Cary ; Deputy Treasurer, R. Hopkins. A Successful Surgical Operation. —For some years past, the wife of a citizen of this county, residing in the vicinity of Longville, has been troubled with some internal com plaint that baffied the skill of the medical faculty accesaable in the locality. In No- Tember last, the husband took his wife to the Eleotropathic Inatitute, 645 Washington st., San. Francisco. Several physicians were called in, and, after consultation, came to tha conclusionethat the i,a y was » u ffering with what is known as an Ovarian Tumor. A few days after, Dr. J. H. Josselyn, the Basident Physician of the Institute, perform ed tha operation of removing the tumor, which waa found to weigh tea ounces. The lady is now well, and has returned to her heme. The removal of an ovarian tumor is regarded as one of the most difficult opera tions in surgery, and the complete success tku case, reflects great credit upon the •peiator.—Quincy Union FA. UVi, • A house for the sale of California wines has been opened in St. DornS, Me. Nevada Correspondence. Virginia Citt, March, Ist, 1866. Editor Chrohiclb : Last night at 13 «'clock closed the season of the Nevada Legislature. As is common in all legislative bodies, the last day was a buisy one. Members having tickled each other during the session, with a hope and promise, to receive support for a favorite bill, were brought to a focus, and in some in stances successfully, while others showed their teeth, and flew the track, sacrificing everything reposed in their integrity. The Orphan Asylum bill, which has consumed much time and debates, was vetoed by the Governor yesterday, and concurred in by the Senate, after receiving a constitutional ma jority in both branches. The bill, as passed, donated ten thousand dollars to the Sisters of Charity Hospital, for the purpose of re lieving this institution of indebtedness in curred in erecting suitable buildings for the care of orphans. There being no State in stitution of this character, it was conceded by all sects and the public generally, to be a just and worthy expenditure, in consideration of the fact, that, although it is a Catholic in stitution, it is the only one in the State, and thus far, children of all denominations have been admitted and tenderly cared for. I have much admired the acts of Governor Blasdell, but the vetoing of this bill, in my opinion, shows a lack of charity, that has always heretofore been the prominent feature in his character. a SOCIAL GATHERING OF PRINTERS SEHABK ABLB COINCIDENCES CONNECTED THERE WITH. On yesterday evening, the printers of the Enterprise office were summoned to appear in a circle around the imposing stone, by Mr. John Booth, (who has worked in the office for near two years past) to partake of re freshments prepared by him, in honor of his annual wadding day—the 28th day of Feb ruary—being the 26th anniversary. At the time Mr. Booth was married—lß4o—he was publishing a Harrison campaign weekly pa per, called the Political Examiner, in George town, Brown county, Ohio. During the publication of the above paper, a boy by the name of U. S. Grant worked in the office and received instructions from Mr. B. in “the art preservative of all arts,’’ for the purpose only of the better fitting him for his studies at West Point, an object which his father, “Uncle Jeesie Grant" had in view at the time, and which, at the end of the year above men tioned was accomplished. On the night of the wedding in question, which was intended by all interested, should take place on the sly, as the bouse was small, and not capable of accommodating many guests, but, in spite of all the secrecy used, Ulysses Grant had procured sufficient information to warrant him to summon his forces and make a “charge." Just as the little party was com fortably seated at the supper table, the com mander of the tin-pan serenading troupe gave orders to beat tatoo, when, almost as quick as the order,was given, an old lady seized the tea-kettle, and sprinkled hot water over the floor, which found its way through the cracks of the floor, causing the happy General to give orders for a retreat, which was done in M double quick ” time. He might have been able to conquer a shower of hot shot but a shower of hot \eater was more than he could stand. In 1840, Ulysses Grant, as then known, a mere boy, employed in a printing office, clearly showed (as told by Mr. B.) marks of greatness. He was quick to learn, shrewd and closely observed everything going on.— At the very moment this annual celebration was going on one of the compositors read from a telegraphic dispatch, that General U. S. Grant had been presented a purse of coin by the citizens of New York, containing one hundred thousand dollars, in token of his great skill displayed as commander of the American armies, which resulted in conquer ing the Rebel forces arrayed against the Con stitution of the greatest nation in the world. Mr. B. has reason to feel proud o a pupil that has reached and justly merits the great ness and distinction which our much beloved General U. S. Grant is entitled to. Bumper after bumper was drank to the health of “ teacher ” and “ pupil," and finally separat ed, spiritually inclined to the belief that bad really been to a wedding. MISCELLANEOUS. Allman’s passenger train of eleven pas senger wagons, leaves this city to-morrow for Montana, Each wagon is drawn by six horses, and well fitted out for the trip. He expects to go through in 33 days. They take the overland route by way of Austin and Salt Lake. We are enjoying beautiful weather, except ing occasionally a visit of the Washoe Zeph yrs, which in its perambulations, occasionally turns over a dwelling house, much to the disgust of its occupants. Our mines are promising fair for large yields. Many rich strikes have recently been made. We may be happy yet. Yours, &e., Calaveras. P. S: —Ten minutes after closing my let ter and while standing in the door, convers ing with a friend, my attention was attracted at seeing persons running from the door of a saloon each way, when suddenly I heard the report of a pistol. Words of an unpleasant nature passed, which resulted in the death of Ben Ballou, a fireman, from a pistol shot in the hands of Billy Shepherd, stage manager at Max Walter s theatre. As near A I can understand Shepherd is justifiable. The ball entered his forehead, killing h ! m almost in stantly. Shepherd gave himself up to the officer without any resistance. It has created quite a furore but I think things will settle down without any further troubles, C. Congressional Elections. —The bill in troduced in the Assembly by Mr. Sawyer, changing the time of electing Members of Congress in this State, has passed both Houses. The bill provides that the next election shall take place in September, 1867, and every two years thereafter. Postponed. —The sale of the orchard and vineyard belonging to Thomas Stevenson, advertised to take place to day has been postponed until Saturday the 24th iost. Escaped.— M. E.
