Our1 a A Co.'s Exr uss.-We are arry to har
that circumstances compel this old and well con
ducted line to draw off the Salt Lake route. They
will make their last trip from this city to Selt Lake
to-morrow, drive up their stock to the Jfferson
river and winter them. " Jack," the incomparable
Jack Oliver, will at once start eat and bring oat, as
soonas it ean be done, a number of fine, new Cen
cord coache, for the re-eatablshment of his line in
the spring, when be will be so prepared as to bet
the best time ever made between here and the City
of the Saints, This line always had the reputation
of being the fastest and most popular. and it is on
ly the impossibility of getting the best of coaches
this winter that compels them to draw off now. As
soon as their new coache come on, their stock will
be fat, and fit to travel over a bad road at lightning
speed. Their line to Bannack will continue to run
semi-weekly trips from this point, and we need only
say that they will, as heretofore, seeto the comfort
and convenience of the traveling public.
.-Judge E. P. Lewis, who has not been con
sider a " pilgrim," in these parts " within the Memo
ry of the oldest inhabitant," and who, withal; k one
of the cleverest of good fellows and best of men
has been appointed the Auditor and Recorder of
Deer Lodge county.
It is our verdict, rendered on some knowledge of
the man, and after the maturest delberation, that
that commission was stuck in the right pocket,
and we hope Judge Lewis will make his forie aii
hie new home, sad hold his ofce until a better hana
comes to claim it.
Deer Lodge county is just beginning to unravel
her story of mineral wealth and promises to be be
hind none of her sister counties in lode or placer
The residents of each county in this Territory re
insisting that their own locality is ",,a ming
country" but after a rather patient and therough
survey of the wholesubject, we have gathered some
of Webster's philosophy when he rephlied to Hiyne,
and have decided that all Montana is the mining
country of the United States.
No region has been thoroughly prospected but
enough is known to assure us that Montana will
stand in the front rank of the mineral lands of the
Cox Or.x vs. HUl a O'NmL.-- Hugh
O'Neil and Oon Orem made good their se
cond deposit on Tuesday last, and agreed
to vary the articles of agreement so far as
to change the day for the fight, from Feb
ruary 5th, as originally intended, to New
Year's day-and further, that the whole of
the ring money be fought for, and become
the proper y of the winner.
Jo RILEY .s. TOY FOSTER.-A match has
been made between these two men; Foster
conceiving that he is abie to compel the el
evation of Riley's sponge, whith opinion
not being received as ,rthedox by the Em
eralder, hence 'ariscth the present match. I
$50 aside have been put up. The present
arrangement is that the fight shall come off
at B!,nnack, but Riley intends offerinr Fos
ter $200 as an inducement to fight mn the
same ring as C.on Orem and Hugh O'Neil.
BANNACK CInr, Nov. 7th, 18564.
EDITOR or MorNTANA Pos:--Seeing in your ~s
per under date of November 4th, an article headed
"A Challenge," in which Joseph Riley offers to
fight me "a fair standup fight anywhere within one
hundred miles of this, (Virginia) city for any
amount not leess than one thousand dollars." You
will please announce that I will fight Joseph Riley
"a fair stand up fight " for the sumof one thousand
dollars, within two miles of Bannack City, and at a
date not later than two weeks from December 20th,
1864. Should Jo-e ph Riley agree to meet me as
per above, the first instalment of $250, shall be de
posited in your office on or before the 14th day of
November, 1864, THOMAS FOSTER.
From Jefferson County.
MoNTANA CiTr, Nov. 10, 1864.
EDITOR POST:-We have been having a
slight foretaste of stern winter recently.
The surrounding mountains have been
clothed to the depth of a foot in their wintry
mantle, while down here in the valley, only
an inch or two of snow has fallen, which
vanished before the heat of an hour's sun.
We have been absent a short time, and
upon our return, were truly surprised at
the rapid growth of our thriving little
town. Building is progressing rapidly,
while business of every kind seems lively.
There no longer remains a doubt of Mon
tana City ere long being classed among the
most thriving cities of our young, but rich
and prosperous Territory.
Quartz prospecting is yet being done.
many good lodes are found daily in this
vicinity. The Edgerton lode is within one
quarter of a mile of town, which, I am
told, assays $2,300 per cord. The Oroand
Opposition run through the town, each of
wnich are said to be very good lodes in
which interests have been sold for very
good prices. Out of a lode, the name of
which we have forgotten, Mr. Lillpounded
with very imperfect facilities,.a fourth of
an ounce of quarts, out of which he ob
tained twelve good colors of gold. The
Grampian, Sally, and several other lodes
are near here, all of which are supposed to
be good. Farther up the galch, in the Hot
Spring district, mae the Eureka, Qparts
Hill, Oro, Hunter, Gregory, and many
other lodes, some of which prospect suffici
ently good to assure the ereetion of mills.
Up in the Courtright district, there.are
many lodes of great richness. The Supe
rior and Courtwright are considered the
best. Tnere are many other lodes of which
I will write if they prove of any conse-e
quence. Upon the Boahe lode, there has
been perhaps $500 expended. "The brevioe
is six feet wide and prospects well. On the
Courtright, labirt'e the amant of several
hundred dollars hbateen performed. Upoq
all the other lodes'taore or less work ha*
Prospectors have principally confined
themselverto discovering lodes, and sink
ing down enough to be sure they were good,
deferring a more thorough testing of them
until winter, when the snow will not admit
of farther prospecting for discoveries,
when the difeteret companiesAirll join is
teeting thedifferent lodes.
Thirteen or fourteen men of influenep
have gone eat, iste diaf to each bring 6
mill here in the sprin. Much eastern as
well as local capitarwill be conceptrated
here dtring te eiha*ing fear. Untiripg
industr'y i~aitbd with eapitW, wii o itw
piish nmch, and when the rich gold ana1
silver lodes of Prickly Per are opened-
from their treasared vault will istte t
stream of the preoious metals u.nausaep
by the wealth of Ophir.
Bar mining continues yet tobe done with
good remuneration. Good prospects are
found in the creek, but thebed rock has
not yet beeo found.
Egnell's Express continues to make
weekly trips between this and Virginia. It
has become a fixe4 fact, and an enterprise
of incalculable value to the inhabitants of
this part of the country,and wewish every
success to the responsible and gentlemanly
proprietors. Yon re.epectfuUy, , Rovs.
