MOrTANA POST-MR. EDITOR: As custo
dian of the Territorial Cabinet of Minerals,
permit me through your paper to acknowledge
the receipt of a number of fine specimens of
ore from leads discovered in Brown's, Rams
horn, Silver Star, Hot Springs and William's
districts; also two large fossils from Alder
gulch. The ores are all of gold and silver
the latter very handsome and of great value,
showing native sliver as well as the more im
portant sulphurets. The veins are represented
to be of great extent and ores easily extract
edi; and we are certain that no better loca
tions for silver mills can be found in the Ter
ritory than those now presented in both
Brown's and Williams'districts. The oresare
rich-of great abundance, easily extracted,
situated among the foot-hills; are, therefore,
comparatively free from delays caused by deep
snows. Timber for building and fuel abun
dant and easily obtained. Water pure and an
sufficient quantity for milling purposes. We
are therefore gratified in calling the attention
of capitalists to these leads, which must in a
short time rank high with the silver produ
cing mines of the world.
A fine bed of fire clay has been opened in
William's Dibtrict. which has been tested and
so far proven to be superior to any yet found
that we know of in the Territory. We havea
specimen in our Cabinet which can be seen,
and persons desiring to test it can be supplied
with any amount desired, by Mr. Reese, of the
Mr. Kirby, of Bannack, and Mr. Pratt, of
Hot Springs, each inform us that we may
shortly expect fine collections from their re
spective districts, which we are assured will
prove a valuable addition to our small collec
tion. We say small -this is true, for whole
districts are yet unrepresented, and not a spe
cimen can be found from many of the noted
leads of the Territory. We await their arri
val with patience, for when parties interested
in the quarts of Montana look over our col
lection and ask for specimens from this or
that lode, we must answer-"The parties in
interest have not sent them in, notwithatand
ing all have been invited."

himself to his sendies, and became a favorite
with his fellow students. At tSe close of his
lleriate coaure at Stoneybarst e carried od
the silver medal for rhetorie, and was so.
k*owl.d4ed as one of the foremast erators of
that school of rhetoric and eloquence. On
leaving Stonenburst. it was his intestion to
becme an ocer in the British army; hbt
Q'C.n4n l at that time had mselnd what was

aside his prospects as an ocer in the British
service. and boldly threw himself into the ea

the abortive attempt of '48. be therefore ex
ped himself to the power of the British
Government; and, after the feeble and futile
efforts among the mountains of Tipperary. he
was arrested and transported for life. (neoer
aarin to see his native lend) which entence
still held good at the time of his death. Re.
n.unc.n hi. parole, he made his escape from
Van De;man's Lead and arrived in New York
own the 2Yth of June l8S2. Immediately eo
his arrivrl he was enthusiastically welcomed
by the citisen of all parties. The Common
Council of New York preented him with a
enmrlimentarv address, and invited him to a
public procesion and the hospitalities of the
Ecity. This he declined in a very eloquent let
ter. alleging a his prelpal reason for so do.
ing. that those who had shared the danger
fand misfortunes of the attempt to free his na
tive land were still in captivity, and that it
would bhe unworthy of him to scpt any ova
tion while they were in exile. For the irst
three years of hlis redence in the United States
he devoted himself to lecturing before the
Literary societies of the great cities North
and South and became acquainted with the
leading men of both sections. Early in 185
he started the "Trish News," abt wishing to
have a more active field for the exercie of his
talents. he sold out in 1858. and went to Cen
tral America. The results of his explorations
in that country appeared in a series of charm
ingly written article. in "liarper's Magasine."
On his return from Central America the war
of rebellion broke out, and although attached
rto the South from personal associations of the
most cordial character, he still felt and saw
that it was his duty to sustain the authority
of the United States, and he determined to
,support it by his presence in the field. Of his
brilliant career in the field we are all congls
eat; sufmfie that the famous Irish Brgade un
der his command won imperishable laurels all
through the Peninsular eampaign, and parti.
cipated in all of the important battlee. Foi
his gallant and devoted services in defense of
ithe National cause. President Johnson placed
him on the list of brevets, on the termination
Lof the war. He was appointed Secretary of
Montana in 18i5. and arrived here in Octobe
of that year. Since his arrival in Montana he
Chas prominently identified himself with the
material interests of the Territory, ever aiding
them with that earnest, impulsive generosity
of spirit which was a marked characteristic of
his nature. Gifted with talents of a high
order, and endowed with a liberal education,
his efforts on the rostrum or in the study, were
among the most brilliant of the day. Rich
in the lore of ancient days, a ripe scholar, as
heerving traveler; uniting with the quick wit
of his native land a fervid fancy and ideality
toned by the pathos of an exile's life, his for.
ensic appeals were models of beauty and elo.
quence. In social life he was courteous, ami
able and hospitable, and a welcome guest is
every circle. The intelligence of his untime

It is now about twenty years since I fret
eard of Thomas Francis Meagher. lie was
then represented to be a young graduate who,
had began with others to resist the English
omanation of Ireland. He had been arrested
was tried, and sentenced to death, but his sen
ence was commuted to banishment. I next
heard of him upon a lone rock in the South
nm Ocean, waiting an opportunity to come
to America. At New York he was tendered
_n ovation, which he declined, but took up
is abode in that city, where he became a fav
orite with all classes. Honor and respect
flowed in upon him, from the moment he set
foot on American soil. His generous Irish
ature, which had been exhibited in the strng
le of his own country for imdependence,
found ample development in our recent war
with the South and the glorious achievements
of his Brigade, are fully narrated and illus
trated in our History. At the close of the
war, he received the commission of Maj. Gen.
t the hands of President Johnson, and soon
fterwards was appointed Secretary of this
territory. Since his arrival two years ago,
his life has been spent under our observation.
We have had opportunity to listen to his
pleasing and instructing conversation-his
urpaweangly brilliant orations, and to profit
y the exuberance of his social and friendly
ature. He possesed a noble heart-a gener
ous and manly spirit,and a most genial daiposi
tion. There was nothing in his faults to ex
tinguish the fire of great virtue--and like all
the laults of geniu.-, in the light of his won
erful powers, showed that like the rest of us,
he was human.

A MISSISSIPPI reporter gives a graphic
ption of a thunder storm, and close.
huly : "At midnight the scene changed.
e proud waves of the angry and storm
S Misdasippi uncapped their created
and bent in low courtesy to the
-rijag clouds, which, as they ascended.

hemuelve in the transcendaut garments
their asure horn, gracefully bade the
o longer surging waves adieu."
