E.rrD. PosT:-Hfaing noticeddi -your
aperusome commanieSatons relating to Inh
disan troubles, I sepd ye. this aecoa.nk of
what has happened, to my own knowledge,
in this vicinimy.
The irst depedatlons thit I kno of,
were committed at Dempsey's. The eetsfl
was broken open, the horses let out, sad the
stallion untied. On being discovered in the
acthey were fired upon and made good
their escape, lea~ing three dead upon the
The next day they came to my ranch and
camped for the night. I had sin horses
rn;"ing in the valley. They got inixed up
with tin red-skins' snimals, and could not
be caught in be evening. When the morn
came they were nowhere to be seen. The
man *ho was taking rare of my ranch,
went to the Indian camp, but could not see
any thing of the horses. The savages told
him they had seen the horses over at the
foot of the mountain, pointi g out the
place, some miles distant. On arrivin
there, he saw that he had been - groused."
No horses were there. HIaving crossed the
river, he hired a horse and went up stream,
continuing his search. Night overtook him,
when meet~a two men, the three picketed
their peiays and lay down to sleep. On
waking they found their ropes cut and two
poneys missing. My man, beingone of the
unlucky ones, made the best of his way
home, arriving safely, with his saddle on
his back, at about 10 o'clock. It appears
to me that he was swearing some.
My horses were stolen nt .af,,.Anl- n.a
rv.uv "..."iu u · . aQwetng some.
My horses were stolen oii Saturday, an,
on Snnday I returned from Summit. Earl.
on Monday morning, Joe Lohrmann and i
saw Indians running horses off and shortlh
after, W. C. Vaughn came up and stated
that the Indians ha4 stampeded his horses,
in daylight, before his eyes. On Monday,
Mdr. Vaughn and I rode to the Indian camP
but failed in getting any trace of the stolen
stock. On Tuesday morning, Edward
House, O. Garland, Lockwood, C. Vaughn
C. Lovejoy, P. H. Way, David and mysell
Sstarted on the tral,. Late in the afternoon
we came to their camp; next morning, wci
went to the chief, who admitted that his
band had twenty or twenty-five head iof
stolen stock and that he would bring it in
two nights, but we did not believe him.
Edward House and I went ahead of the sav
ages to the Gallatin, and having acquaint
ed the settlers with the facts, most of them
promised to meet us at the time appointed
for the meeting. Not a man came. After
we failad getting help at the Three Forks,
Mr. House said that if any man would go
with him, he would go to Virginia City if
any one would accompany him, and accord
ingly started with P. W. Way, promising
to return in a few days, if he could raise
any men, but that if not, he would send
Way back. I waited for two days after the
appointed time, and their rode over to J.
11. Bozeman, who promised, if possible, to
assist me, provided I could get some men
to go along. The men that had been with
me had got out of patience and had all re
turned except one. I staid all night with
Mr. Bozeman, and made known my case to
the citizens on the following morning, tell
ing them I intended to take the first Indian
stock that I met-peaceabjy if I could, but
anyway I would have'them. I then rode 7
miles down the gulch and met four Indians
at Pugh's ranch. I seized their ponies and
persuaded them to go back and tell their
chief that they could not have them unless
my horses were given up or paid for. Two
more of the t:ibe riding on one horse were
served in the same way, but refused to go,
and one, though warned by Lockwood not
to do so, yet rushed up to within four feet
of me, putting his hand under his blanket
as if to draw a weapon. I firedand he fell.
After lying some fifteen miautes he got up
and walked towards camp. We returned to
Dozeman's, and, after hearing oar story,
the inhabitants corralled their wagons and
ruled us out, saying that we should be safe
if we took the mountain road to Virginia,
But if we stayed there, their lives would be
in danger. In this opinion Bozeman con
curred, so we mounted and took to the road,
wishing them good luck and, in return
wishing us the best of good luck. I was
next arrested and brought before Don L.
Byram Esq., for killing one Indian and try.
ing to kill another. However, no one could
prove that the Indian was dead, though
many thoughthe was. I was permitted to
make my own statement, which I did, in
substance agreeing with this letter. The
result was, I was held till the 7th in $1,000
bonds, when I was bound in $1,000 to ap
pear at the next court, the judge refusing
to hear any of my evidence.
-_ : . , .. . ..·
to hear any of my evidence.
I started for home with an ox team, and
was arrested at Peter Daloy's on a charge of
stealingfirve pcmeys from the Net Perces
ITdians. We waited for the coach to Neva
da. I came home, and in a few days, Mr.
Davis, the constable, came in search of my
horses, to within 100 yards of my cabin. I
mounted and started for the river. 1ie
hailed me, and I, not knowing'who he was,
rode on. Mr. Davis told the man at the
cabin that- he ought to have shot me, and
that I did not actin a gentlemanly ni.nner.
Ai.trwards- he admnitted that he had no
warrant. Davis acted kindly towards me
whilst a prisoner in Nevada.
I had forgotten to mention, that, at the
time appointed, we made 4 demand for our
stock of the Indians, but they laughed and
said the Pen d'Orei'Jes had them and called
us cowards and squaws.
Old Ranger Jones says in his letter which
appeared in your columns isat week, that
" The chief says 70 head of stock followed
them off and tht they.drove them all baek."
Now I know of .ve head that were never
brought back, for they wore *my own also
a saddle foll4Aed them, and was found
witL4 them, which was rather curiouns.
There were only about 25 l.4a4-takLn troim:

hrox Posr:--Since ewritaig my last, I
have moved farther down the creek. and nam
making my headquartera at the toll-gate
on0 the Benton road and kept' by Jess
Crooks. There we made the acquaiatanpe
of Mr. Merrill, our county Recorder. Mr,
e Mlrrltl 1,' one of the first settlers in this
part b~Fthe ceuntry, and is known far and
near, as an honest, upright and thorough
business man. Thus he will make a good
officer, an, if what everybody says is true,
d "he is the right man in the right place." -
Montana City is a new town, only nur
P veyed last week. It already contains eight
houses finished and fifteen are being built,
- while twenty-five or thirty will be com
0 menced shortly. Thus you see, from the
e rapid progress we are making, there soon
will be a city here, which, for business,
wealth and population, maygere long rival
Virginia and other of its older sister towns.
The city is being built' upon a large level
and beautiful piece of ground, some 2 miles
below the toll-gate and where the Benton
road leaves the creek. It will possess many
advantages over the little towns started
farther up the creek-in fact, this is the
only location where a town of any size could
Sbe sneceesfally built.' Being in- a -central
part of the country, the county,seatl will
probably be removed hither, as Gallatin,
the former one, is totally depopulated.
The timber, water and pasturage is better
here than we have seen elsewhere. The
climate is more genial-scarcely any
snow falling during winter, while far
ther up, towards the head of the creek
and Boulder valley, ta-ch falls, and winter
holds longer. Placer miningpays very well
while gold and silver lodes abound. * *
Prickly Pear gulch extends for eighteen
or twenty miles from the head down a creek
of the same name. All the bars seem to
pay well. The bed of the stream has not
yet been properly tested. Some have gone
down almost to the bed rock and got good
prospects. The water impeded further
progress. Several companies are making
prepartlions to "fccl for the rock," and if
the bed of the stream be properly opened,
we do not seewwhy there will not be good
The Grampian, Fanny, Silver Bones, Eu
reka and Superior, are considered among
the richest lodes yet discovered. The Bay
State, Courtright, America and other lodes
may also prove good. The company owning
the Grampian lode intend having a mill in
operation in the spring, possibly this fall.
Mr. Merritt brought from Iowa with him,
a saw mill, which is only three miles above
Montana. The mill will be in operation
shortly, and from the splendid timber
growing here, lumber can be furnished at
comparatively cheap rates. Thus building
as well as mining will be much facilitated
by Mr. Merrill's enterprise. The plentiful
supply of timber and the great demand will
undoubtedly make a saw mill a paying'in
stitution. More anon. Yours in haste.

DoxMsSic SILLs.-California may branch
out and become a great silk manufacturing
state some day, when it becomes known that
her facilitiea for doing so are much superior
to those of most other .lands, Louis Pre
vost, of San Jose, who has a lot of silk
worm eggs and cocoons on exhibition at the
Mechanics' Fair, says that in Europe thb
greater portion of every crop of silk worms
get diseased and die, but in this elismate
they all live and come to maturity-it is
impossible for them to become diseased.
He also says that here it is but little trouble
and requires small.care and attention to
raise silkworms, and that in his department;
of labor one mhan here can perform the work
of eight in Europe, and do it with compar
ative ease. Provost gets no opportunity to
manufacture California silks, because the
demand for his silkworm eggs is so great
from foreign cQuntries, and the prices paid
him so liberal, that he fladr it more profita
ble to lay the eggs, and hip them.o, .than
to keep them and hatch them. As fast as
the worms produce them, he sends them to
Italy and comes as near filling all orders
from there as.he ean, at twelve dollars an
ounce (coptaining 40,000 eggs.) Ho has am
order from Mexoco, now, for 500 ounces,
but he is unable to fill it. They- say that a
eilkwerm ranch is one of the few kinds of
property in this world thatnetrer fail to pay.
