Ed.Post : This town has not been^j exempt from the depression so general^throughout the Territory. What be^^tween the Lemhi stampede and the tem^^porary cessation of the smelting works,^I owing to a short supply of coal, times^i have been dull, very dull. But the tide^lias turned. Numbers arrive daily on^j their way from Salmon^poorer than^they started in all save dear bought ex-^i perience.
TheSt. Louis works are again in full^blast. A cart wheel of pure silver was^cupelled this morning. Our merchants^show the faith they have in the future^of this camp by their works. Messrs.^! Harby and Toothill have moved into^their new store on Second street, which^is one of the finest business buildings in^Montana. They are building another^I 8tore on the adjoining lot, in which they^intend to open a large stock of drugs and^groceries. The building they now occu^^py they were offered $5,000 in gold for^as soon as completed.

wsD,Victor arose and said, ^ You see^my people. We see our chief. Glad to^see him.^ Ambrose followed. Desired^to know what was to be done in regard^to the Stevens treaty. He said they had^received nothing for it; their annuities^were behind ; that their best lands were i
allbeing settled upon by whites; that j Never before in the history of this^the present Indians were poor, not as country have the crops given such pro-^well offaa their forefathers ; their lands mim o( plenty. The hay crop, one of^were barren ; his heart was crying, for j the most valuable, is now beyond ti e
reachof any ordinary calamity, and the^yield will be unprecedented. Our city^readers can hardly understand what a n^immense gain this is to the country.^During the last season the farmers in^many rural districts saw the bottom of^their hav mows for the first time in a
theIndians were afraid that the trail to^their hunting grounds was in danger.
It-siredto know where the Agent^was who was not a trader; where the^articles were that were promised them^when the treaty was signed^they had^n'ver received them. Isaac. Adolph,
Alexanderand others spoke, all desiring j score of years, and $40 to $50 |^or ton
knowthe object of the council j all^expressed great regret at having made^the treaty with Stevens, as the Govern^^ment had not complied with the terms^thereof; they complained that they had^leen unfairly dealt with, that their best^lands were being settled upon by the^*hites; that the tribe was very poor,^^nd wished their Great Father to help^them.
Mr.Wells closed the council by say^^ing that he was glad to see them all look-^ISf n well, strong and fat, not sick, for^which he thanked the Great Spirit ; that^^v.is :t ^: ranger to them ; that he ho|^ed^to know them all in time ; that their^^in-at Father told hini to send them a^medicine man to see that their children^were educated; that he had talked with
wereoften paid in the heart of agriculta^ral districts largely devoted to gra.ss^culture. The crops of I860 was put^down in the census at a little over $1U,-^IMXUHJO; that of lMOO.by the Agricultural^Bureau, at 21.978,027 tons, valued at^$ii 17.501,73^; but the yield ol 1867 is^likely to be over 30,000,000 tons, a gain^whose im]^ortance can hardly be over^estimated.
Thewheat crop of the United States^for 1866 is given by the Bureau at 151,-^MMOt bushels, valued at $333,773,046.^The yield this season is still subject to^more contingencies than the hay crop ;^but the testimony from all sections is^more universally cheering and favorable^to the largest croptt than ever before in^our experience. The same is true ot the
rgoo,! Priest about it ; would talk ' corn croP- Thf -vi, hl ofcora for
apain; that he wished to do what was^right with them, old and young ; that he^wished them to judge him by his actions^not by his words ; that he would do the^Nut he could for them j that their Great^Father told him to do so ; that he wished^to do right, advising them to do right,^he good and not to be unhappy ; that his^ear^ were always open to hear what they^had to say ; advised them to lay their^troubles before Victor and their good^Priest; that Indians should not quarrel
lastvear was given at 867.946,21*3 bush^els, valued at $261,660,205. For this^year the promise now exceeds twelve^hundred million bushels. Other grains,^and most of the fruits are equally pro^^mising.
Theeffect ol such a supply upon the^finances of the country will be almost^counterbalanced by the grossest mis^^management of national affairs. We^have seen a statement in print, intended^to show that it made little difference
loveone another ; all men should u^ tVe c,ountry whether the yield of any
oveeach other ; if we do not, God will^not love us : white man is Indian's bro^^ther; Indian white mans brother; In^^dian and white man should love each^^'.tier; that he loved them and would^try and do what was right towards them;^lhat he would talk with their good^Priest about all things ; that lie hoj^ed^the (Jood Being would help them all;^thanked (hem for the good order they^had kept and the kindness in which they^received him, and hoped ihey should be^^come better acquainted.
Thusended the tare*^it can be called^nothing else^no business of any kind^h^'ing transacted. I have no donbt this^rouncil will be the subject of a lengthy^report to the Department. These gath^^erings are of no use except it be to breed^^^^content among the Indians, and are^iToductive of much harm.^All are of the opinion that Mr. Wells^is totally unfit for the position he holds ;
maydo as a cierk in the Department^lt Washington, but he has no tact to^.- iu i'm 12. ^^^ky Mountains^: -' t along with the employee* on the ^^^V.-n^ y. and the sooner he is relieved ol j^^^^sent duties the better will it be^pr all concerned. Many think him to be!^insane at times. He certainly acts very^rtrange occasionally, especially when j^ander the influence of stimulants, which^HorTy to say, is often.^^The weather is fine) and warm ; crops^^^^k rvmarkaMy well, end unless they^*re destroyed by thv ^ rickets and grass- j^ers, look for a large harvest. |^- have done considerable dam-j^-^mt; portions of Bitter Root val- ;^'1'^ a some i us la uces destroyed entire I^^^f both grain and vegetables.

specifiedcrop was large or small, since^the price was enhanced by scarcity,and^as much was obtained tora small return^as a large one. This sophistry is too^transparent to need refutation. The re^^lief to all classes of laborers and producers^to be found in the overflowing abundance^now promised never came at a time^when it was more sorely needed. It^should be accepted with devout grati^^tude, and a dtte acknowledgement of its^divine origin. No heart should be un^touched by the teeming bounty which^breaks in so signally uj^on the general^despondency.^ X. }'. Tim^*.
