LIBRARY REDUCTION.- Mr. Pinney has reduced the rates for reading his splendid library. Read more and talk less and people will think you are wise.
JIMMY BROWN’S SALOON.- This fashionable resort was crowded on New Year’s, but no disturbance to cause an arrest occurred throughout the day. Jimmy’s egg-nogg was not of a quality that freezes.
THE CHINA MURDER CASE.- Ting Hop Wan, or whatever his name is, was bound over in the Justice’s Court, at Pine Grove to await his trial at the ensuing term of the District Court in February. In default of bonds he was sent to jail.
SOZODONT.- This elegant toilet article for cleaning and preserving the teeth has just been received by Craig & Mix, druggists. This is the second lot they have received this Fall, and those who wish the article should call immediately, as it is in great demand. We acknowledge the receipt of a bottle.
NEW YEARS CALLS.- Among the many well furnished tables laid for the entertainment of callers on Monday last, we have heard special compliments in favor of the banquet board by Mr. J.H. Wickersham and Lady. At quite a number of residences the blinds were closed, doors locked and the folks to all appearances, “not at home.” We would be pleased with the fashion that all ladies remain at home on New Year’s Day, and the gentlemen all come to see them. This is very proper and with the ladies a popular idea. Quite a number enjoyed themselves in this manner during the forepart of the day, but the wine being generally no “steam” caused so much exhilaration that few survived its effects later than 3 o’clock in the afternoon, that is, to such an extent as would enable them to continue their visits with their accustomed grace and dignity.
GYMNASTIC BALL.- Remember on this Monday evening next. It will be very gay indeed. The members will try to dance in conformity to polite usage and not go into ugly contortions on the occasion. The “Summer-set Quadrille” will be sweetened down so that ladies will not object to it. The “Trapeze Polka” will not be attempted only at such times as timid ones can stand it, and the “Vaulting Gallopade” any lady can learn in two minutes. The management hope that by attention to the particulars, to make it the most exquisite thing of the season. We acknowledge the receipt of complimentary tickets of admission from the managers.
ED.WORLD: In your issue of the 23rd day of December last, which appeared a notice, under the head of “married,” in which one Hugh Kelley and a Miss C.M. Smith were said to have been married on the 13th of December, in this city, by myself. At the date of said reported marriage I was in Boise City, and have no knowledge that, before or since or at that time, I married any such persons, in this city or elsewhere. The notice was of course untrue, and unauthorized and you were imposed upon by some discreditable person. January 4th, 1866. A.Z. Poulin

THE DUST MEETING.
At an assemblage of citizens, merchants and miners at the Magnolia Hotel on Tuesday evening, Jan. 9th, 1866;
On motion of W.D. Vantine the meeting came to order and elected C. Clark, Esq., Chairman and JUS. H. Wickersham, Sec’y. A.A. Mix stated briefly the object of the meeting to be to devise a suitable system for reducing gold dust as a CURRENCY to such a rate that will be likely to substitute COIN in its place throughout the BOISE BASIN.
On motion a committee of three were appointed, consisting of A.A. Mix, H.L. Andrews, and A. Scheeline, to canvas the city for the purpose of soliciting the aid and cooperation of all merchants, traders and miners. On motion the above committee were instructed to prepare an address and have it published, showing the advantages to everybody of having the dust CURRENCY so reduced as will best promote the introduction of coin.
On motion a committee of three consisting of A. Rossi, J. Koenigsberger, and A.C. Isaacs, were appointed to present statistics on the value of dust, and the general benefits to be derived by all parties.
On motion the above committee were instructed to report on January 20th, at seven o’clock P.M. at Magnolia Hotel.
On motion the meeting adjourned to meet again Jan. 20th, inst. At 7 o’clock P.M.
C. CLARK, Chairman
J.H. WICKERSHAM, Sec’y
THE Avalanche says they have a new way of trapping deer in Owyhee at this season of the year – it is this: they so maneuver as to get the deer in deep snow, where it is crusted, but not sufficiently so to bear it up; then run upon it with snow shoes, and when near enough, take their guide pole and knock it over. This mode, we are told, is pretty successfully practiced during the snow season in this locality.
FROZEN TO DEATH.- A party of twenty men, among whom was Mr. Kohlberg, undertook recently to go from the Dalles to Portland by the trail, and it appears met with such terrible cold weather that Mr. K froze to death.
GOOD ROADS.- The road from Horse Shoe Bend to Idaho City via. Placerville, has not been closed this winter and is in excellent condition for teams.
THAT CHINAMAN AGAIN.- On Wednesday evening the accused China murderer was granted leave of absence from the jail on a writ of habeas corpus issued by Judge Shephard. A warrant of arrest was granted by Justice Hodgden and the fellow immediately retuned to jail.
FROM ROCKY BAR.- The South Boise Express arrived on Wednesday, thirty-one hours from Rocky Bar, including one night’s detention on the route. Messers Macy & Goodrich propose to make the trip in sixteen hours at any time when the public desire it. The return Express closes to-night at 9 o’clock at the Ponjade House. Letters one dollar; packages three dollars per pound.
ODD FELLOWS BALL.- to take place at the City Hotel Tuesday evening next, is to eclipse if possible, all former efforts in the line of grandeur and extravagance. The dress of ladies and gentlemen is expected to be more magnificient than anything ever exhibited in this City or Territory, and the supper we believe will too.
We acknowledge receipt of complimentary tickets from the Committee.
SUDDEN DEATH.- On Morning last, Mr. Dennis Prior, after eating a hearty breakfast, proceeded to take a walk in the direction of Bear Run. Shortly after, he was discovered leaning over some cord wood apparently bleeding to death, and died in a few minutes after. He was not noticed to be particularly unwell previously, although somewhat affected with a weakness of the lungs.
