P.ETE jltfD THE FJIOO. (Dan de Quille In the Virginia (Ner.) Enter- 1 prise Peter O'Reilly was one of the pioneer miners of Washoe and one of the discov erers of the Comstock silver mines—one of the men who turned up to the light of day that glittering ere which was themotion first or over $200,000,000 since taken from the great vein then hit upon. Before going to work on Six-mile can yon, at the head of which the great dis covery was made, Peter O'Reilly mined on Gold canyon, along and large ravine heading on the opposite side of Mount Davidson, a mile south of the canyon first named.

THE QBANGE ADVANCE. WEDNESDAY. MARCH 29, 1876. H. H. Y0UK3, Publisher A Editor. The Midland Railroad. A writer in |the Zumbiota Inde pendent, who signs himself Cue finds fault with what we have said about the bonuses to the above named railroad company, and claims that it is conceded that towns, coun ties and States have "a light to aid everything that is a public benefit." If that were true, bonuses could be voted to aid in building mills, black smith shops, stores, etc., for it may often happen that the establishment of any of these is a "public bene fit." is right in saying that we would not oppose taxes for "schools, roads and bridges," but these are public institutions. Railroads, like factories, etc., are private enter prises and it is not right to tax a community for aid to establish them, because to do so is to take the prop erty of one citizen and give it to an other. As for the assertion that we would favor the bonus, if the road termi nated at Red Wing, "Cue" puts his sta...

Death of the Noted Horse Hanibletonlari Rysdick's Hambletoniaii, probably the most noted horse in the world, died last week at Rysdick estate at Chester, and as it was the wish of his late owner, Mr. Rysdick, that the horse should be buried on the estate, a grave was dug for him yesterday afternoon behind the barn where he lived so long. A large box was made for his body, and he was buried Tuesday. An offer of $1,000 was made yesterday for his hide, which was refused, the speculative genius no doubt wishing probably to exhibit it around the coun try. Hambletonian, was foaled in 1849.

I S O I A O A N E A Strange and Interesting Leaf from Musco vite History. During the latter part of the six teenth century the power of the Grand Dukes, or Czars of Moscow, made rap id progress, especially since Ivan, sur names the Great, had struck terror into the hearts of the hostile tribes east and south of his dominions. His sud den death, however, left the growing Muscovite Empire in a very unsatis factory condition. Military pretend ers made no secret of their intention to sieze the scepter of Ivan and ex clude the distant relatives of the de ceased ruler, who laid claim to his possessions. There was no direct heirs but Ivan had had a brother, named Demetrius, a wayward, eccentric young man, who had left Moscow many years before, and who was believed to have fallen in a battle with the Khirgese on the Siberian frontier. It was about this time, when the peo ple of Moscow were looking forward to the developments of the immediate fu ture with anxiety and terror, that the followi...

We have been discussing the greenback issue for nearly two-thirds of a year, and at different times, have bhown all the objections raised against that theory to be more prop erly applicable to the existing finan cial policy. Notwithstanding this, we were recently called upon by the editor of the Republican for an ex planation and, in reply, gave him a brief exposition of our system, with out, of course, descending to details. In the next issue of his paper he confirmed our suspicion that he was insincere in professing a desire to discuss the subject fairly, with a view to its elucidation, for he took occa sion to misconstrue our language and, basing an argument upon such misrepresentations, arrived at the following conclusions: 1. The plan as above stated involves Mo ment contraction of the curency to the ex tent of about half its volume. 2. The stringency of that contraction will ...
