Cow Killed. -A cow belonging to Mr.C.P.Stevens got on to V.& T.R.R. track on Sunday and was run over and killed. The Indians went through her, "like a hue and cry through a country village."

Ore by Railway. -An idea of the vast amount of ore from the Comstock now being shipped, daily, by the V.& T.R.R. is conveyed in the fact that fifty six cars of eight ton capicity each, and nine cars of ten tons each are loaded at the mines and dumped at the mills every twenty-four hours. This makes a daily aggregate of 538 tons! This amount will doubtless be increased as soon as the Mexican Mill with its tremendous capacity is fully underway.
