TiRciNiA Cmr^ On arriving at this place On whit astonishes any stranger is the siie, hav3 apparance and vast amount of business, adapt thrt is here beheld. Though our city is may 1 but a year old, fine and substantial buill- but ings have been erected, and others are ray- turai] idly going up. We are safe in saying that in ou; 100 buildings are being erected each weejr, earrie in Virginia City and its environs. Nevada forme and Central City are aqnally prosperous?^ : eom Indeed the whole appears to the stranger to Valle; be the work of magic ^ tfct vision of a plus dream. But Virginia City Ik not a myth, a ready paper town, but a reality. That it is a fsst I onr ci place none will doubt. The bf'siness n*n * ave enterprising, energetic, and being well and 11 acquainted with the wants of the miner low,?r have large and well selected stocks. for our taia ' trade. It may be asked by our readers in rup'c^ the States, why this prosperity ? The an- ' hc-mc. awer, gold. No richer diggings exist, wc *anne believe, anywhere, than are found in oir risi,)tl gulches, while rich quartz leads abound 1 1 through ortr Territory. The amount of rrei*k precious metal existing in these leads will , aD^* s a>t be known for hundreds of years; for'maay none can estimate the period when they | D7 u^ will be exhausted. The placer diggings ^ t)ul*di will require years to work them out,. So P1 that the future of Montana Territory is theJ 1 bright and dazzling. Many persons are Jw^ * taking out $15Q-per day to the hand. We ^^f were shown a nugget taken out at tke...*^' * Summit, worth $700 ^ a beautiful speci- men. Many other fine specimens can be seen m*' 1 in the windows of our bankers. Wages a are high^ from $6 to $12 per day. Old ?^nf! miners have the preference as they are jj| 1* worth much more than green hands. Any- Z*?^ thing in the shape of labor commands high iftU1!f rates. We know of none having claims, but are taking out large amounts, and as ^ur C the dirt will pay by a second washing, and tDC^ the ground has not been a fourth gone over. Oir mining will be the principal feature of our the d business for years. The other side of the milee picture is this ^ we desire not to deceive, The but to give facts. All the claims, as a prari matter of course, around our city, have abun long since been taken up. These must be fara.. purchased, and that too at very high fig- will ures. A ^Pilgrim,^ as the emigrant is dircc called,wbo comen here munt work for some- saisii body use, or if he has means, purchase a claim, ct strike out for other diggings, sev- f^r i eral of which have recently been discov-~?'rr,! cred in our Territory. Mnny persons ar- disci riving here, not finding nuggets of gold oa min^ the pine trees, and finding mining very with hard work, and thoy not fairly able to com- 'be pete with old miners, become discouraged, don' and >;turn home. This, wo think, is folly, ao v is no need of any person being out hoar of en,t U suicnt who makes the effort to ob-* ~?rr! tain it, and that too at good rates. An or- becn dinary laborer can get $6 per day, and this *rA^ in gold, making it equal to $12 in green- dwy backs. He can board himself for $1,00, dolli thus receiving $11 in greenbacks per day. *ere This will seem fabulous to our Eastern ?0tt11 r$#de^~> V-* nuc. Tnc anunaance sslr? gold makes everything high ; and business I active ^ hence the rapid growth of Virginia the and Nevada cities. Hereafter, we shall >^ tl speak of our neighboring villages which are r*b rapidly growing into importance. ?d We were agreeably disappointed on our disc first arrival, and know that others are alno ph^^ agreeably surprised. Soon we will he abls taw to give the precise population of Virginia ?
' Arrival of the Governor ^ Serenade ^ .(
His Speech. ^ Governor Edgcrtor paid our place his first visit last week, and became i ? ? the guest of W. F. Sanders, Esq., our townsman. On Friday evening, his honor S' was given a serenade. A large crowd aw gathered ^ the band discoursed sweet mu- fcai sic. His honor was loudly called for, and foa addressed the crowd briefly. He remarked low t'mt the growth of our beautiful city ap- Q \ peared tho work of magic ; the vast rich- ^aU nees of our Territory, its climate, moun- jgy tain scenery, ftc, were beckoning the hon- be est emigrant to this ^ Switzerland ^ of America. As the Executive of our Tcrri- ? tory, he pledged his word that the laws iai should be executed. This is what our peo- kD pie want, and what we know the Governor and his appointees will give us. Being one mt of us, the Governor will labor earnestly pt , for the interest of our Territory. His re- I marks were conservative ^ no political har- m ; rangue was indulged in. This was right. a? . The Governor, we think, is the right man j8 i in the rif bt place, liong may be reside 50 amongst ns. t^j ^ Saturday he returned to Bannock, but B9 will soon revisit our city, where we hope bo 1 he will conclude to remain. ! After the Governor closed his remarks, J Mr. Sariuers and other gentlemen were *u , called for, several of whom came forward T^ ^ and addressed the crowd with happy ef- **a feet. ^

Our Vegetable Market. ^ Many persons have the idea that our country is not The l adapted to agricultural purposes. This leads, may be and we think is true of a portion, year, but we have seen many large potatoes, heavy turnips, unions, etc., that have been raised would in our valleys. On the Madison farming is fifteen carried on quite extensively, and we are in- more i formed that the crops with the exception of of thi corn are quite .ge+d. In the Bitter Root prepai Valley die erops are peed and a large aur- food, j plus will be produced, whieb will find a' are he reaily and; good market. Let a portion of food, ^ our citizens turn their attention to farming vise t and stock-raising ^ they will make money, manei and the people will receive provisions much for wi lower ^ a plenty can be produced to bub- vanee. taia our population though it were quad- purchi ruplcd ; this would keep our money at ward i hcm.c. We think it far better to pay the before farmer at our door a good price for pro- prices visions than to purchase in the States or at ^* Pec Salt Lake, and pay the enormous price for 8,x do freight. Let ^ur people look at this matter mines and see the money in it, and we will have taken maay thrifty farmer* next season. By-the- opene^ by we see that certain gentlemen, who are gulch^ building a temple ai Salt Lake, have raised mer' the prices of provVons enormously. Did graz'n they take into c si . ration that it takes crativ' two to make a bargain? They being a 64,1110 little short about this time, we think they wbem are a* much iv neod ^ ou. g^ld no we are ^^8*1 P *8f their cabbages. Speculators for a time in6 t0 may monopolize the markets, but it is only them, for a short period ; let those having any- ^* ou thing to nell find the market and dispose of taU8 c it, and a proper investment of the receipts ^* *a7 generally yields a larger profit than is ob- eni,gr tail. f d by holding on when the market is w'^n good.

This is what we want ^ open up mittc fajixs, boys, and you will be richly repaid Qf tj. for the little labor required.

The rich discoveries of :gold in quartz Jj7^

of people labor still keeps up from five to wr?;(,h

The . truth of the matter is 'Jt the rebel iron-phated voasels are of no vain ) whatever, except to furnish a pretext foe the enemies of tho government to deri and cripple its efleris to subdue th re- bellion. They. are nat for ail tin.-, but Cei a day, and a short one at that. They are reported in telegrams as about to emi from their fsatenings, to sink, burn and destroy ; but when the time arrives an un^ avoidable postponement occurs. Perhaps after much vaporing thoy do venture ta at^ tack some halr-araied gunboat or txannport, and having drowned some doz^u men, or fired a shot through some tug's boiler, which the exigencies of the service have transformed into r. gunboat, we read boni- ; bastic reports of tkeir achievcm ats.
