HURRAH FOR LINCOLN!
" We are cemnagr, Father Abraham,
As we were going to press we received
the glorious -news that LIncoLN and JOHn
soN are elected. In every State except
one from which returns are given, Lincoln
is ahead by a large majority. Little New
Jersey is all right. The fact is, every State
has gone right, with the exception, probab"
ably, of Kentucky, which is doubtful. G.
B. McC. ought to carry one State.
As wo close, 10 o'clock, p. m., the Union
men are having a celebration. Music,
bonfires, and :speech making are the order
of the day, or rather night.
The devout thanks of the people are due
to Almighty God for this triumph of Free
dom and Right.
"RALLY ROUND THE FLAG, BOYS!"
The First quarter.
With this number of the MONTANA Post
expires the first quarter.
We have labored under great disadvan
tages as far as paper and other material is
concerned, but hope to have new stock on
soon, when we will be at o.dce prepared to
meet all the wants of this country. Want
of type prevented us f or piabis n; th.
P. O. letter list, but ere long, we will bc
abla to give oar patrons in distant parts of
the country the so much wanted list.
As the subscription price is put at as low
figures as possible, we require prepayment,
and all who wish to have their paper con
tinued, must come down with the dust.
MIr. Hugh Glenn, our solicitor, will call
on all subscribers in Virginia, Centreville,
and Nevada, whose subscription has expired
to renew the same. We hope to have all
our old patrons on our books again for the
Standing on a rocky cliff, against which
the foaming breakers spent their strength in
vain, it has been our lot to see a gallant
ship striving to escape the horrors of a lee
shore and an iron-bound coast. Tack after
tack has brought her, tempest tossed yet
still safe, to the last out-stretching head
land, but here a squall strikes her, and like
the foam, away she scuds, rushing appar
ently into the very jaws of destruction. As
she nears the breakers, the storm ceases for
a moment, and then with renewed fury
bursts upon the gallant bark. The shaking
sail tells the old seaman in command that
the wind has shifted a point, and his eye
lightens as he grasps his trumpet. There
is no room to wear; and to tack would be
to fore-reach into the embrace of death.
His quick eye sees all at a glance. "Stand
by to clubhaul the ship ! Clear away the
best bower!" thundes from the trumpet.
Each man executes his task. A moment
of suspense, and again the trumpet roars
"Stand by to let go the anchor! Un
shackle at fifty fathoms!" "Aye! Aye!"
from the seamen. Another moment, and
"Let go! Stand by to slip the cable,"
rings like a clation on the storm-blast.
The anchor flashes in the wave. The cable
tautens on the weather bow. There is a
momentary lull, and the good ship swings
round on the other tack. The cable is
slipped, and the helm sad sails shifted. A
moment of suspense, as she eareens till her
yards dip in the foaming surges, and then,
as she recovers, gathers way and heads for
the oing. "She rights !" "She rights!"
" We're off the shore !" flies to the lips of
the thankful crew, and many a murmured
"Thank Ged" and many a warm pressure
of the hand, among the faithful mariners,
* testifies that the danger is over and the ship
. It is so now. Borne ao the rough waves
of. rebellion; the storm of sedition areund

call the fatal ballot that has made them
aliens in the land of their birth. " They pro
nounced against her; they argued, bribed,
besought, intimidated, bushwhacked,
threatened insurrection, and ti ied to barn
the cities of their own- naive land, when
they could not succeed, in wrenching from
her the confessionof shame and defeat aad
the title to half her broad domain-and
What' a mine or misery and eternal re
morse is in that word ! To fail in a good
cause is honorable, but basely to attempt,
and then meanly to fail, after all the brag
adocio of the last few weeks; rocks and
mountains hide us from the eyes of men,
and the ever abiding infamy of inseparable
association with Vallandigham, Jefferson
Davis, Wood, and the rest of the tribe of
parasites, who, knowing that dregs can
only rise by ebullition or putrefaction,
sought their elevation by the rottenness of
corruption, and the distempered ferment
of useless faction-and-failed !
That there have been some who have
given a conscientious vote in this struggle
against their country and in favor of- its
enemies, our knowledge of poor human na
ture forbids us to doubt; but when time
shall unroll the veil that now hides the fu
ture, how humiliated must such men feel,
to think that having eyes they could not
see the merits of a case soplain; and that
having reason they could not understand
that the cause against which they voted was
the cause of all mankind, and that the
success of their fondest hopes would have
ushered in the dark ages on this enlighten
ed continent; robbed labor of its dignity
and industry of its reward, and proved
that not only was aristocracy the right sys
tem of rule, but that anything that is old
is righteous; and that liberty is preserved
better by force than reason; that we are
bound to obey the voice of the people only
as long as we think it will be to our ad
vantage; and that having voted on a ques
tion and having been beaten, that if we
do not like the result of the vote, we are
justified in appealing to arms, to rescind it
by force. This, and a host of kindred and
absurd propositions, were involved in the
vote of every northern citizen who gave his
suffrage for peace-at-any-price. These re
flections mad.t Mayor Sherman of Chicago
vote the straight Union ticket, and also he
must have been influenced by the conside
ration that a cause must be black and bad
indeed, which, with awhite banner for an
ensign of peace to the South, sought to fire
the cities of the North, and by revolver
and bludgeon, to prove the power of con
ciliation-thus inaugurating in their own
midst what they affected to deplore as too
-wfRi ')i~ ; witness~d in the States of the
iiany were tie boasts that the " rail
splitter" would be beaten at the polls of
his own State. To the utterer of such a
sentiment, well might we say," Where be
thy gibes now ?"- Illinois is redeemed
from the aspersion.
One State, trembling in the balance of
reason and wrong has tottered to its fall:
but elsewheae, all records are but stories
In the camp of Robert Lee, and in the
cabinet of Jefferson Davis, men curse the
"vaulting ambition" which, o'erleaping
itself, has fallen "on the other side"
while, on the other hand, in every city,
town, hamlet and homestead of the loyal
North, the thanks of freemen ascend to the
"Divinity that shapes our ends,
Rough hew them as we may."
Over the stormy Atlantic speeds the
news. Despots trenmble and politicians turn
pale. From the vainly sought ruins of Free
dom, they have hoped to build up a feudal
castle where, in echoless vaults, the last
sigh of liberty should be breathed into the
glad ear of its jailer, Power. Pointing to
America, the Hapsburgs, Bonapartes and
Romanoffs of Europe, were wont to smile
at the troubles of a nation whose alliance
they courted in happier days and to give ut
terance, with an affected spirit of prophecy
to the regal delusion, "Republics fall to
pieces by their own overgrown weight."
We envy not the aristocratic noboy
who prefers the hair-splitter Buchanan to
the rail-splitter Lincoln-but, thank God,
the " Glory of Illinois" has prospered in
his task of repairing the wrongs wrought
by his predecessor, and, at this hour, we
rejoice that the American nation is no long
er in doubt as to which is the stronger,
might or right. We think well of the hon
est men who are elected to the posts of
President and Vice President of this na
tion. We could name no better, and one
of them has earned a title to the gratitude
of his ceuntry, which, rich as it is in ma
terial resources, yet can it never pay. But
after all it is the principle that has triumph
ed; the majority still rules, and the repub
lio is saved.
Below we append the Election Returns.
We should have been happy to do so before
but we preferred giving the official returns
to laying before them statements, at all
events unauthorized, and, probably, incor
W. F. Sanders received a majority in
all the counties except Madison, but here
the case was reversed and the-consequence
is the return of Col. MuLei.n by a majority
ofi more than 1,200 votes.
The larje number of votes east in propor
tion to the population is owing undoubted
Iv, in part, to the large population of adult
males emigrating hither, but it is open to
suspicion that an inordinate love of the
fra chise impelled some gentlemen to vote
"not wisely but too well" or rather too
. The Union men are for this once over

It is with pleasure we announce that the
waterworks, so much desired, are so far
advanced in construction, that the water is
now brought close to the Shakespeare res
taurant on Idaho street. There is nothing
more to be desired than a regular and co
pious supply of good water. We are firmly
of opinion that more than half of the
sickness In this town is traceable to care
lessness in the selection of water for
drinking and culinary purposes. Any per
son may satisfy himself of the cerrectnejs
of our ideas on the subject, who will take
a walk round the town and examine the
condition of the pools and streams from
which a large number of our citizens are
in the habit of obtaining their daily supply.
The water is not in a condition for any hu
man being to drink. Regard to health be
ing thrown out of the account, pleasure
and taste must be both out-voted, or no one
could think of imbibing the turbid and
impure element. There rre, it is true,
places where persons can obtain fair vter,
but distance and time offer obstacles that
in the'hurry and bustle of a mining town,
render it improbable though not impossible
that not more than one in twenty will sub
mit to the extra labor involved by the
longcr carriage necessary for obtaining a
Physiologically speaking, the necessity
for the purity of water is important. It is
the basis of all the fluids in the body, and
there is no tissue in which its presence 00n
not be detected in very largo quantity. I
Unlike alcohol, which floats about the sys
tem uncombined with its substance, water
gives fluidity to the blood, and is the vehi
cle by which all the substances necessary
to build up the human frame are deposited
from a state of solutioxi, at the necessary
points. If then, foreign substances are
combined with water, its nature is so much
altered, and its powers as a solvent so much
impaired, that dyspepsia, with its multi
fold varieties of disorder and disease,
nervousness and a traif of afflictions es
pecially and ncceessarily attributable to its
use, which it is here unnecessary to de
scribe, follow in the track of the all-per
vading element, and that which, in its
pure state is the best of all beverages, be
comes an insidious poison when deteriorated
by the admixture of abnormal constituents.
Now, although, in this tract of country,
mineral ingredients are present in nearly
all obtainable kinds of spring or river water,
yet a great step is gained by using the
water obtained at a point where decayed
animal and vegetable substances, the
washing of innumerable hoofs, the pad
dling of dogs without number, &c., have
not been added to the natural and unavoid
able impurity imposed upon the element by
contact with and solution of the sub
stances met in its passage through the
Our waterworks do all that can be done
to reach this point. Starting from the
mountain slope, the water is conveyed in
wooden tubes to the town, and advantage
has been taken of the " head " Or elevation
of the spring, to insure the delivery, when
wanted, at any height necessary for the
extinguishing of fires, or the supply of
lofty buildings, to the very attics.
We hear that the price charged is $2 per
month, per family, and we must say that it
is, all things considered, very reasonable.
Too much credit cannot be awarded to the
men who have accomplished this undertak
ing so far and so well. It.is a speculation,
but it ip a lawful one-for its success will
be fraught with nothing but good to our
citizens. It panders tone depraved imagi
nation, excites no morbid appetite nor un
lawful desire, but administers t6 all a sup
ply of a most necessary and important
article, with injury to none.

is known as Deer Lodge or Frenchtown,
and distant from Virginia City about 90

son having a mill and desirous of a location
would do well to visit our district, and I
feel confident he would immediately locate
here, for we have everything necessary to
make a good country. We have the mine
ral wealth, abundance of timber and water,
plenty of farming land and as good a
grazing country as can be found In the
world. Now, what more do we need?
Will you answer us I CROPPINGS.

Bi.Luac Crry, M. T., Nov. 13, 1864.
EDrrox PosT :-Without excuse, the un
dersigned will assume that the capital of
the Territory is entitled to mention in the
columns of the only newspaper in Montana.
The antiquity of this city, (being now
over two years old) to say nothing of its
appearance, its business, and the substan
tial character of its citizens, renders it an
object of interest and deference. Your
flourishing Virginia has, it is true, out
stripped, out-shone, and thrown our unpre
tending city quite in the shade.
You have richer gulch mines, have taken
out more gold, done more business, and
polled more votes. Madison county is in
the lead, and may continue the prominent
county for a year or two, but there is en
couraging prospect that Beaver Head
county will, in reasonable time, contend
for the supremacy in business, wealth, in
dustry and population.
Bannack City has been dull during the
past season, but during the autumn we have
been gradually reviving. Trade has im
proved, more whisky is drank, var:arnt
houses are occupied, " stated preaching" is
sustained, and we have a ball, sometimes
Centreville, situate less than a mile down
the gulch from Bannack, is deserving of
special mention, for there are our quartz
mills. Centreville is only a hamlet, hbutt
the music of thb engines and the ceasele a
clatter of the stamps are a.reearble to the
ear, give encouraging promiise of the fu
ture, and raise the village to a fixed and
important place in the Territory.
There are two quartz mills in operation,
one erected by Ccl. lHunkins, at an ex
peuse of over forty thousand dollars. The
Colonel is the pioneer in introducing steam
mills into the Territory. His machinery
was brought up the Missouri rivo:, a -po:
tion in .h. *umm~E o6 `63, andI the balance
the pi,.r.nt season. The mill workod suc
cessfully during last winter, but has been
idle during the summer, being refitted and
largely increased in capacity. It has now
twenty-eight stamps, and has recently com
menced work. Tho other is a twelve
stamp mill imported by E. D. Pitt the past
This mill has been purchased by a New
York company. Last winter, our old and
worthy friend, E. R. Purple, passed the
winter in New York c*yv, and succeed,!d in
interesting some of the monied min ,f
Gotham sufficently to induce them to au
thorize and venture an investment in our
quartz lodes. Mr. Walter C. Hopkins ar
rived in thŽ Territory 'early in tie summer
accompanied by Professor A. R. Eaton, a
thorough and competent geologist and min
eralogist, as the agents of the New York
gentlemen for the purpose of examining the
country and the quartz, and if circum
stances warranted, Mr, Hopkins was in
structed to negotiate for and purchase such
interests as his judgment might determine.
Mr. Purple's representations were confirm
ed by Prof. Eaton, and Mr. Hopkins pur
chased Pitt's mill and an interest in the
Dakota lode. lie has made an investment
of nearly sixty thousand dollars in gold,
and is backetl by any amount of money for
The mill is now run by the New York
Company, ::nd they are crushing their own
quartz, out of the DLakota, under the super
intendence of Sam Batcheler and his
younger brother, Gov. George. The ma
chinery works admirably, and the results
are altogether satisfactory. The quartz
lodes in the neighborhood of Bannack and
Centreville are in every way promising.
Extensive discoveries have been made in
Beaver Head county, near Ball mountain,
and on the Rattlesnake. The advent of
Prof. Eaton to this Territory brought the
silver mines of the Rattlesnake into notice,
smce when, industrious prospecting has
been done, and a great number of lodes dis
covered. These silver lodes are believed
to be quite as rich as the silver mines of
The Montana Company, consisting of
Col. McLean, Dr. Hopkins, Mr. Purple,
Prof. Eaton and others, hold a valuable
property in silver lodes, and have expended
considerable in opening and developing
the same. They have also located a town
near the mines, known as Montana City.
Other parties have devoted time and money
in demonstrating the extent and value of
these mines. It is gratifying to be able to
state that their labors have been attended
with most flattering results9
The Beaver Head Silver Mining Compa
ny, under the lead of Davis Barrows & Co.,
hold some fine property, which has been
sufficiently developed to determine its per.
mance and value. The Pine Grove Com
pany, (not yet organized) hold some of the
richest lodes ity the silver region. These
companies will'all endeavor tt introduce
mills or smelting furnaces next season.
It is the opinion of Prof. Eaton that the
silver ore can be smelted, and that there is
an abundant supply of Are clay in the
neighborhood. These silver mines are al
ready known in California and New York,
and mhave adddlargely tO the reputation
of this Territory as s maling ountry. The i
ores have already been tested, both In Noe
York City and ;S a Frar s. The chatr
aeter ad rieb4a.:thse mines will be

New ebrLkthe .'
Enough of minesa or the present, and a
word of public matters. The Legislature
will convene here. There is no isible en
idence of any preparation either for roomn
or furniture. The only officer authorized
to do this iusiness is the Secretarr of the
Territory, who haynpt yet reportMd hinelf4
He ought to take bhi place or bU'displcedJ
The Governor will, it is hoped, tak.e tile re
sponsibility of niaking such preparaions
as the condition of the country will permit.
The members elect from Beaver Head are
all good men, and will labor to advance the
interests of the Territory with zeal and ef
ficiency. If bhis county should be entitled
to a presiding officer of either house, Dr.
Leavitt would make a faithful and compe
tent President of the Council.
Our citizens are preparing for the coming
seeson, and there is every prospect of an
agreeable winter ahead.
The Delegate elect, Col. McLean, will de
