A VaLITABLit Wsu..—The great Farrell well,

diamond mine, if productive, might approximate
in value to a 2,000 barrel welhat the present time.
But the mining stock of Golconda, and "the gor

'played out" and eclipsed by the ell mines at Vo

hospitals all over the country, giving them the

His last labor was the establishment of the large

OUTBAGSOIIB Connucr.—About 11 o'clock on
Thursday night a squad of soldiers broke into •the
grocery and eating establishment of Mr. Evan
Boise, on the Ridge road, just above the May
House, by means of rails, with which they bat
tered down the door. They drove the owner out,
then curled away all they Gould, breaking all they
could not take with them. The show case was
broken to pieces, the money taken from the drawer,
several barrels of weaker. 'mattered over the
street, all the watermelons taken away and lung
over fences, the windows all smashed—in fact, the
house was thoroughly gutted. Two soldiers were
united yesterday and will have a bearing to-day.

FILTHY Coxnmoa Op THE MinnTP HISIIRE.—We
directed attention dn ?deadly Asorning to the
neglected and offensive condition of a great por
tion of the meat stalls after market mornings,
basing our remarks upon actual inspection, both
ocular and olfactory, and called upon the clerk of
the market to enforce greater cleanliness in future.
This we considered to be his duty. As overseer of
the markets, he is expected to enforce the laws
regulating them, one of which (see City Ordi
nances, see. 5 of "an ordinance concerning the
markets, passed March 2, 1861") provides that the
butchers "shall leave no offal in or about the mar
ket house, and shall also clean and remove their
blocks after market hours, and place them under
their respective benches? ho. This duty was but
indifferently fulfilled by most of the butchers, and
by some has been ignored altogether.
The Telegraph, whose madness appears to be
meihodieal and consistent only in denying and
carping at everything we say, puts forth an arti
cle on Wednesday evening, in which it endeavors
to provoke bad blood between Clerk Haehnlen and
ourselves, and also lauds the market house np as a
sweet scented paragon of cleanliness. It likewise
courts the butchers, and threatens us with their
"future attention and resentment."
Thie last threat is not unlike that of a boy who
attempts to hold his big brother in terrorem over
his companions. We have learned, however, to
place a proper value upon the threats of our ske
daddling neighbor, ever since it took the back
traoktip the country in the day. of WO Abolition
hegira. We don't think any self-respecting
butcher would whip a fellow for simply telling no
torious truths ; nevertheless, "ef so be as how" we
are mistaken, we are prepared to have our $3OO
head brought to the hatchet's block--a martyr for
As to Mr. Hesitater, welnistake the man if he
allows his teeth to be set on edge against us by
such an exoeedingly ill-flavored and diminutive
persimmon as the "Telegraph." lie does not be
long ,to that establishment, and ought to have sense
enough to see that we meant no personal offense
in calling his official attention to a few bad-smel
ling facts. The remarks were not written with a
view to pleasing him, however, but to correct an
evil. If they prosper in that direction, our end
shall have been accomplished. If "Fred takes
measures to atop" such paragraphs in future (as
the "Telegraph" intimates) we would suggest
iplit brooms, water and soap as the best measures
he can adopt.
-We re-affirm all that we have asserted heretofore
in regard to the filthy state of the market house
for some time past. Every man who wee obliged
to pass through that house on last Saturday knows
how truly we pictured it. It told its own story to
both eye and nostril. Even some of the butchers
themselves did not deny the facts in the main, but
plead as an excuse (the only one, by the way,
which we have heard) that they had left the blocks
and counters in the stalls uncleansed in order that
their offensiveness might prevent loungers and in
terlopers from sleeping on them through the day.
These facts were so clear, that is was to be ex
pected that the "Telegraph" would not neglect so
good an opportunity to miaister to its mendacity.
We therefore find it lauding the cleanliness of the
market house, and peppering point blank at the
truth with volleys of falsehood and nonsense. As
the butchers are about to be cited to appear and
answer to the proper authorities for their neglect
of ordinance regulations, any further comment
upon such flimsy mendacity seems to be uncalled
for. Truth is a jewel, and so is clean beef—and
neither of them shall be Snatched away by whip
FATAT, illccronsv.—Mies Mary Solider, a young
lady employed at Shober's paper mill, Lan easter,
was instantly killed on Thursday afternomi. She
was engaged in sorting rags, and having occasion
to throw some dirt into the creek, stepped across
a horizontal shaft which was need to connect the
power of the paper mill with a machine Chop ad
joining, when the skirts of her dress caught. In
an instant her clothing was wrapped about this
shaft, and she was whirled around at the rate of
forty or fifty revolutions a minute, her body at
every revolution striking the building. The mill
was stopped and the unfortunate girl extricated
as soon as possible, but life was already extinct.
Launcs' Fasinous.--An oracle of the fashions,
discoursing of . the styles of bonnets and cloaks
which are likely to prevail the coming season,
says the scarlet cloth talmas and oirculare hare
obtained a rage as great M that of the "Otte
bonnet." Feathers are to be the most distinguish
ing ornament of stylish bonnets for the coming
winter ; and already there is a great 'demand for,
and a terrible scarcity of, brilliant scarlet plumes.
Ductsios.-The Commissioner of In
ternal Revenue has decided that where a. party
lends gold coin for a period longer than three days,
receiving as security the market price of the day
in currency, the transaction is the same, so far an
liability to taxation is concerned, se though be
borrowed the eurrency for a period longer than
three days, depositing as security the market price
in gold coin.
