Dsa. PonT :-.-There was ant atempt mde
last venin to reward uns" ish merit, and
to .resoue from oblivin the unrequited
labors of one of-your worthy townsmen.
At a meeting of the "Third House," Gov.
John Ritohie took the chair, and PatRyan
wam chosen Secretary. The object of the
meeting was stated by the Governbr, and a
committee, appointed for that purpose re
ported the following resolutions :
Wasnsas, Mr. W. L. mewn, of Madison county
unasaed, has incsesntly labored for the benefit of
the pople of Montaun Territory, exercising over
the letation of its first Legislative Assembly a
supervisory care, discussing the merits and demerits
of the several bills brought before the Hose, .o
directing the order of busiaeeq; ad
Wasuas, All this labor was by him performed
without fee or reward when a full discharge of his
daties as Clerk would have justited him in allowing
this legislation to be done in a bungling manner,
and without being understood, and
" Wasasea, On all occasions, he has insisted upon
dscharing these duties under circumstances which
would ve silenced that stamp of man cast in the
Common mould, therdfore be it
RasoLVrD, That the thanks of this Housebe ten
dered to W. L. Brown, Esq., for the manner in
which he has discharged the foregoing labors, and
that we regard it as the duty of the people of this
Territory to recognise and reward thee unselfish
RZsoLVXD, That we recognize in the interrup.
tions to which he was subject, by frequent calls to
order, that petty spirit of jealousy and envy, which,
in the military department of the Government, has
snatched victory from our armies on many occa
sions-a spirit to be condemned by all good citizens.
RmsoLvra, That Mr. Brown be requeted to help
himself to a sufficient amount of Territorial sta
tionery to compensate him fully for this extraordi
R-sOLvsD, That these resolutions be published in
the Frontier Scout and also in the Deseret News.
Now, the foregoing recognition of emi
=nent service does credit to the "Third
House," and I am glad to give publicity to
it. As the end draweth nigh, the members
abound in the wit usual on such occasions.
There are "Peanut bills," "Poker Club
bills," "Jawbone bills," and Mr. Bagg, s
far relaxed his grim visage, as to perpetrate
a joke in the shape of a bill for the relief
of Charles Trobridge, and another person,
members of the " Union League "'in your
place, for services rendered the Territory,
in going to Fort Union last fall for votes.
The law passed both houses calling an es
pecial election in Madison county next
April, but I think the Governor's pocket is
capacious enough to hold it.
Funny and foolish things are being done,
One hundred and fifty dollars has bees
voted to B. B. Burchett for trying a m.
here whom Sheriff Plummer hung in 186l,
and e*O0 4, Itob,. n.wo.ord for hanianz a
man named Ives at Nevada, in your county
the same year. The Historical Society,
thanks to this correspondence, is a body
corporate if not politic. Divorce bills were
the rage to-day.
If Madison county is to send another and
like delegation to the second Legislative
Assembly, in the name of the Gods, I be
seech you convert them first to the doctrine
of Orpheus and hisldisciples, who taught
that the future reirard of the good consist
ed of a state of everlasting intoxication.
In anticipation of such beatitude, I fancy
even now I hear these delectable legislators
"When that illustrious day shall rise."
I-ow quickly they would reform-how their
mouths would water! How they would
smack their lips in anticipation of the un
tasted glories of eternity ! If you will set
before them a heaven they can comprehend,
no one need have any fearsas to theirmost
devoted piety. FxxaLr.
R rnm Silver Cree.o
EDITOR POST :-Thinking that all matters
of interest connected with this new and
flourishing Territory, in whatever locality,
would be acceptable to all, I have conclud
ed to spend an hour or to in giving some
description of tbhe country north and north
east of Prickly Pear, commencing at Silver
City, now the county seat of Edgerton
county-Last Chance having already been
fully expatiated upon.
Up to the present time this section of the
country has been entirely left out in the
cold, although its advantages are equal, if
not superior to any that have received so
much attention through your columns.
The foresight of'those who had a voice
in selecting Silver City as the county leat,
cannot be too highly lauded, both on ac
count of its central position, and being on
the direct road (Lieut. Mallin's govern
ment) through tae most populous portion of
Silver city is situated on -Silver Creek,
about mid way, with as fine a site for a
city as it is possible to select, being a'Oat
of about four miles in breadth, and eight
miles in length. It has every advantage in
regard to water, there being in addition
to the creek, a beautiful, cold, clear spring,
with a full sluice head of water at all times.
The discovery of gold on this creek was
made on the 1st of May, 1864, but until
within about a month- back, the bars were
the only parts worked, and with good sue
cess, but a change has come over the
spirit of the dream, for the gulch is now
prospected in two or three shafts anddrifts,
and far exceeded theexpectations of all
concerned. I was six miles up the gulch
on. the right hand fork, endeavoriag to buy
a claim, or an interest in.. one, but tey all

been eonslderable work done on it, and all
appear satisied with the reslit. In both of
these creeks there ars very little desire
to sell claims, whichi healthy.
The valley of the Little Prickly Pear is
most desirable fot farmni.t.snda-ranching
purposes, and is ooceupid by settlers, some
of whom are preparing for spring opera
tions. One owned by Mr. Clark is in a
very advanced state; also Mr. Morgan's.
Both these farms ar6 on the Little Prickly
In my next comamunisation I will resume

The man that "struck Billy Patterson,"
brought horseflesh to grief on lasu"Tuesday,
by spreading the report that "more as a
bushel basketful" of Indian blood was to
be spilled on the Stinkingwater, near Lor
rain's. Every available and many unavail
able methods of transportation thither,
were at noon collected on Wallace street,
and judging from first appearance we sup
posed that a moral tone would be given to
the hegira, but the supposition was soon
dispelled by the production, from all points,
of drinkables of all kinds to suit the tastes
of the drinkers. A little after noon, and
the imbibation of another drink all around,
the cavalcade, consisting perhaps of fifty
horsemen, made a break, and with masterly
irregularity, each man taking for his right
or left guide, just as it happened, a red cape
and complete armament strapped to the
fastest man in the squadron, and caring lit
tle who his file leader or file closer was.
Reaching Nevada, the excitement and
furore increased, accesseins were-made to
the ranks, and moderate quantities of the
ardent imbibed. Arranging ourselves in
nearly the same order, as our increased
perceptions of good order were enhanced
by the aforesaid ardent, we dashed gallant
13 away, and after many halts, made for the
purpose of reconnoitering for whisky,
reached Lorrain's and proceeded immedi
ately to the scene of carnage.
We hope no one will be su unreasonable
as to ask us to give any detailed account
of anything we saw or did, but suffice it to
say we didn't see or hear any shooting.
The fact is, fifty prominent members of
this community were sold.
At Lorrain's, when the sn was low,
And clear as crystal was the low
Of whisky, drinking rapidly.
But Lorrain saw a harder sight,
When they saw all the Indian fight,
And staggered forth, each drunken wight
Into the snow-bound scenery.
And redder yet their cheeks shall glow,
° While short and thick, they puff and blow,
as to Virginia, home they go,
Spurring and riding rapidly.
A WosNDr.UL Discoxvxy.--From Lieut.
Tolls, who is now in this city, we learn that
a remarkable cave has just been discovered
in the mountains, ten miles north of Fort
Ruby. He had heard about two months
since, that there was a large quantity of
water issuing from the mountain, in that
vicinity, and determined, if possible, to
learn from whence it came. Ic company
with several brother officers from the Fort,
he started on the tour of inspection. On
the side of the mountain they discovered a
hole two feet wide and three and a half
high, from which a sufficiedt quantity of
water came to run a good-sized overshot
wheel. Near by, a short distance up, were
two other holes. They procured a skiff, and
by turning it on.its edge,wmanaged to get it
in one of the upper holes, and work it down
into the channel of water below. They then
got into the boat, and commenced explor
ing this strange lake and cave. The water
was six feet in depth and twenty in width
where they started in, with high walls of
limestone on either side; but as the party
proceeded on their singular journey, it in
creased za size and grandeur, and having
an ample supply of candles, which were
lighted, it presented a magnificent and beau
tiful sight. The water increased in depth
twenty feet, and one llndred feet in width,
and was as clear as crystal. The bottom
coalebe easily discerned with the light of a
single candle. Numerous sand bars were
s'een in various places, the jand being fine
and dark. The ceiling, or arch, is nearly
fifty feet high, except in one place, where
it Comes down so near the water that they
had to stoop in order to get past it in the
boat. They went in about half a mile,, and
found no indicatlons of coming to a stop
ping place. No bottom was found at that
point. It is the intention of the Lieutenant
to explore it further on his return. The
atmosphere in the cave is mild, and a candle
barns brillianzity. This .may eventually
prove to be as celebrated as the Mammoth
arve in Kentucky, and have its hundreds
and thousands of admiring and curious
visitors.-Rus River teveille.

modern philosopher, Josh Billings, has the
f "We kommense li we are somebody's
baby--we hare Saxen hare-we go to dis
trick kle--we slide down hill-we play
hookey-we have great diferkulty with ouar
noses-we larn how to smoke. and And our
self men grown all to oast. Thus far na
ture has piped, and we have dansed, and
we haint d no fiduler to pa, but now csums
in the special ordainment times. I have
been thrn with all this miseif, and stood on
the threehold, a young man, looking around
reddy to be ordained. I felt as hough I
would give 75 at least if sumbuddy would
come along and ordain me and let me pitch
in. I waited for six weeks, if I rekollect
right, and I never got the fust smell of any
ordaining. Then I konkluded to ordain
myself, hit or miss. The fast thing I tried
on was 80 acres of land in the western kin
try. I ordered the venison and wild tur
keys and possums to leave, for I was agoing
to farm. I ordained a log house, and much
rale fence immegiately, and put in a crop
uv wheat, and procured swine and a yoke
I worked 2 years, had the ager and little
crops principally, and managed to sink the
farm, staggs and all. I haint seen either uv
them from that day, and don't think I want
tu. I didn't seem to be specially ordained
for farming in the western kentry.
Since then I have tried every kind of
business that I could hear or, and haint
been specially ordained yet in mi knollege.
The felt all lays in the different kinds of
business, I haint the least doubt. The busi
ness that was designed for me, probably
haint been ordained yet, but I intend to
keep boring, and when I do strike ile, there
will be a good time generally in my imme
giate neighborhood. I have got any quan
tity ov friends (tha don't seem to cam by
ordinashun). I got mine, and manage to
keep 'em by not asking 'em for anything
but advice; you can't ask anything ov a
man he loves to give more, and kosts him
less than advice."
How s wsEs Savan rao RcooNrxmos
BY THE CONFbDERACY.-If we are not mis
informed, it will in due time be suffered to
transpire that we were saved from a formal
European recognition of the Southern Con
federacy by the timely issue of President
Lincoln's initial Proclamation of Freedom.
At the close of McClellan's Peninsular
campaign, the Governments of France and
England professed to have become satisfied
that the independence of the Confederacy
was a fixed fact, and were concerting mea
sures for according an early admission of
the new power into the family of nations.
ernment was confidentially apprized of this
determination so early as September, if not
in August, 1862, and that the more con
servative members of the Cabinet, if not
impelled to advise, were fully reconciled to
the issue of the aforesaid proclamation by
their knowledge of that purpose. That is
sue gave pause to the maritime powers;
and when it had been followed by the Pro
clamation of January 1, 1863, it was found
that the opinion of the more intelligent
middle class throughout Western Europe,
would be shocked by the recognition, which
would be a virtual alliance with the slave
power. The Confederate envoys were con
fidentially apprised of the serious obstacle
which had been interposed to a compliance
with their desires, and to promote its remo
val through some form of emancipation; but
they did not-or rather, could not-achieve
what was desired, so matters went on as we
have seen.-N. Y. Tribune.
STICTDE AT COLUMBIA.-A correspondent
of the Stockton Independent, writing from
Columbia, January 16th, says:
This morning about nine o'clock, a little
son of Joseph Spier discovered the dead
body of a man named Joseph Sanders, ly
ing in an empty building opposite his fa
ther's residence. The youth immediately
gave the alarm, and very shortly afterwards
nearly the whole male population of the
town visited the spot to get a glimpse of
one of the most horrible sights of self
murder ever man beheld! The unfortunate
man was found lying upon his back, with
his head in a large pool of blood, and his
right hand clenching a small penknife with
which he had out open his abdomen, and
strewn his intestines.ovjy the room. His
throat, too, was cat nerrIy from ear to ear,
completely severing the jugular. A more
herrible and disgusting sight I never beheld.
The poor man was undoubtedly laboring
under a temporary fit of insanity. No
other cause can be given for the perpetration
of this rash deed. Henry Osgood--his
partner in the carpenter business-says that
he thinks he was a little out of his mind
the day before the last berwas seen alive.
He left his shop about elevenv cloek Satar
daiy morning last, and had not been seen
till he was found as above stated.
T-ar.ra v Noun.-The Portland Orpon
ion of January 10th has the following:
al~engers by the Wilson G. Bunt, last
evening, give us the particulars of a terri
ble tragedy, as the facts were received by
them from Umatillain the stage from Boise.
Jack Tobin, or Boston Jack, a desperate
character who was with W. H. Porter when
he escaped from jail in Walla Walla, com
menoed a row at the house of two brothers
named Hays, who kept a public house at
or near La Grande, in "Grand Ronde Val
ley. Several persons of his class wanted
more liquor than the landlords were wil
ling to furnish, nad the result was a fight
with pistols, in which the two brothers Hays
engaged this Jack, or Tobin, and a driver
on the Ish stage 'line named.Loos. Tobin
was shot throughthe back of the head and
fell, after his fall shooting the others nam
ed,.or at least the Bays brothers, ihring his
six arrle ,of, ad qggrsi.g his pistol be

A c~as pending bef6re the " Confederate
States District ourt" in BRihmond, has
developed the that there are some
twentfthousand foreign conseripts in the
rebelwrvice. The e"a alluded to is that
of an 3EJ lish alien named D. R. Ogden, an
actor by' profession who was drafted and
forced into the raem while performing an
engagement at the Richmond Theatre. He
presented a paper from the British Consul
at Mobile, showing that he was an alien;
but as Jeff Davis refused to recognise Brit
ish consuls, the paper was rejected, and
Ogden had to go into the army. The mat
ter has been brought before the Courts, and
here the Confederate ato)rney, Mr. Aylett,
took the ground that domicilled foreigners
were liable to military duty, and should be
held to service. The release of Ogden, it
was said, would cause the discharge of
twenty thousand foreigners now held to ser
vice in the rebel armies, most of whom
probably hold consular certifcates of their
nationality, which are pronounced by the
War Department at Richmond, utterly with
out account. Thus it appears that twenty
thousand foreigners are forced into the
rebel service by Jeff Davis, and are kept
there in violation of all usages of nations.
Complaints hayr been made to the British
Govern:ment, but there seems to be no
movement on its part, as yet, to protest its
subjects, who ,re thus dealt with by Jeff
Tmuazs Burcitny rx JArax.-We have
received via Holland a letter frem Japan,
three days later than the news already pub
lished. It has already been stated that the
Prince of Nagato having refused to pay the
war indemnity stipulated in the treaty of
peace signed by him, a judgment of the
criminal tribunal of Jeddo had decided that
his two palaces should be raised to the
ground, and his servants put to death. We
now learn that this singular and sangmina
ry sentence was approved of by the Mikado
and Taicoum-the spiritual and temporal
sovereigns of Japan-and that the number
of servants killed in the execution of it
was 420 men and 215 women and children.
The Prince, 'on learning these facts, was
deeply concerned, and sent to the Capital
his first Minister, on board the English cor

them to intercede with the Taicoum in fa

purchase of an extensive coal mine, imme

object of which is to have coal at command
in case of maratime war. This tract of
country is about twenty-five miles long and
and ten wide. The coal is very near the
surface, and is in five strata, the lowest
being but sixty yards below the surface.
Water is supplied by a system of subter
ranean galleries, so that steam power is not
needed. Labor in that part of Germany
can be had for twenty cents per diem per
man, (poor wretches!) and each man is
calculated to get out thirty-five tons of coal
per day. The acquisition will make the
Government quite independent of a foreign
SoUrt AnsarCA.-A Buenos Ayres paper
announces that in the province of San Juan,
which is situated almost at the foot of the
Cordilleras, gold has been discovered in
almost incredibly large quantities. The full
particulars of this discovery are hushed up
and kept from the masses for obvious rea
sons, but authentic information has been
received by some English residents of
Buenos Ayres which leaves no doubt that
the treasures of the Andes are at last about
to become known to the world. Within
two days after the discovery was made,
