Morningdew drop* hunt; like manna^On the bright fold* of her banner.^While the lephyrs rose to fan her^Softly to the radiant sea.
Ather prow a pilot beaming^In the flush of youth stood dreaming,^And he was in glorious seeming,^Like an angel from above.
Throughhis hair thebreexes sported,^and as on the wave he floated,^Qlt that pilot, angel throated.
Warbledlays of hope and love.
Throughthose locks so blithely flowing,^gads of laurel bloom were blowing,^And his bands anon were throwing^Music from a lyre of gold.
Swiftlydown the stream he glided,^goft the purple wave divided,^And a rainbow arch divided^On his cauvaV snowy fold.
Anxioushearts with fond devotion^Watched him sailing to the ocean.^Prayed that never wild commotion^'Midst the elements might rise.
Andbeseemed scmeyouug Apollo^Charming summer winds to follow,^While the water flags' corrolla^Trembled to his music sighs.
Batthose purple waves enchanted,^Rolled beside a city haunted,^By an awful spell that daunted^Every comer to the shore.
Nightshadesrank the air encumbered,^And pale marble statues numbered^Where the lotus eaters slumbered.^And woke to life no more.
Thenthere rushed with lightning quickness^O'er bis face a mortal sickness^And the dews in fearful thickness^Gathered o'er his tempi's fair.
Aadthere swept a dying murmur^Through the lively southern summer^At the beauteous pilot comer^Perished by that city there.
Stillrolls on that radiant river.^And the sun unbinds his quiver.^And the star light streams forever^On its bosom as before.
Butthat vessel's rainbow banner^wreets no more the gay savanna,^And that pilot's lute drops manna^On the purple warns no more.

He^found a war party of friendly Crows on^the Boulder and went in pursuit, leav^^ing 25 men to guard the pack train. One^Indian was killed. They found after^wards three dead horses, one of which^was the horse Weston was riding when^captured. They also found Weston's^bridle and prospecting outfit; also Mr.^Hodges' coat with one bullet and six^arrow holes through it; also a hat be^^longing to Mr. Brown, who has been^missing three weeks. There are alto^gether six prospectors missing, now, who^started about six weeks ago, and should^have been back long ago. They found^tiaras pilgrims on the road, severely^wounded. They had to fight their way^nearly all the road from Fort Smith.^They report a fight at Fort Smith with^^ friendly ^ Crows One Lieutenant and^two men were killed and three men were^wounded. Twenty-five Crows were^killed. The Crows burned all tho hay^belonging to the fort.
Capt.Nelson started this morning^with 80 men and one piece of artillery^to reinforce Colonel Howie. The hostile^Indians will get more fight now than^they ever have had in these Yellowstone^valleys since they took the first scalp.^It is quite certain that these Indians^were Crows.

EditorPost : I think that the throng^of tho working reason should not pre^vent some one from contributing to the^columns of the Post the events of gen^^eral interest that transpire in this sec^^tion, and therefore lay down tho pick^and shovel by my cabin door to jot you^an item or two. We not infrequently^have a shooting scrape^occasionally a^fatal accident, and other matters that^afford lively themes for a correspondent.^The last shooting affray was to have oc^curred between a couple of the sport^^ing fraternity, respectively known as^^Smithy^ and ^Collins,^ and that fruit^^ful source of all the woes that man is^heir to,^a woman^was the cawrt belli.^There had been rumors of a duel be^^tween the parties, but it had been bruited^about until looked upon as a canard.^On the evening of tho 19th, however,^Smithy made his appearance at the door^of the club-room, where the boys were^engaged in fighting the tiger, brandish^^ing a dragoon in one hand and a huge^knife in the other, and crdered ^that^fellow Collins to come out here.^ adding^several assertions al^out ^chawing up.^^^making mince meat,^ etc. They had,^however, taken such extreme care to^have tho matter made public, that the^authorities gobbled up the wcruld be du^elists, much to the satistaction of all^parties, especially the principals. The^evening previous, during an immense^speech that a Democratic orator was de^^livering, to the edification (^) of the peo^^ple, a shot was heard in a neighbor^ing ^deadfall,^ and James Kelly, an^Irishman, rolled into IJM street, shot in^the neck with a--bullet. This broke up^the meeting instanter, and the orator^left to be seen no more. The man who^fired the shot was Tom Smith, of Rey^noldaCity. Immediately after the shoot^ing Smith stepped into the street, and^in the classical mountain style invited^^any one who had anything against him^to waltz in, etc.^ No one felt the least^provoked until an officer disarmed him^when threats of immediate punishment^were so freely uttered, that the Sheriff^found it necessary to detail a strong^posse to guard him during his detention^here, and conduct him to Deer Lodge^City. Thia Ihey accomplished safely^Kelly is only slightly wounded and re^covering. Colonfcl Sanders addressed^meeting here on the22d, and Mr. Cava^naugh. accompanied by Judge Mayhew^on the 13th. Two miners were killed^on the 22d by one of those frightful^mining accidents which are so frequent^in our placer mines.
Inhaate, voura truly.^Bruin
Ourreaders who are unfortunate^enough to be subscribers to Eastern pa^^pers, and fortunate enough to have ob^^tained any of the July numbers, will^not have failed to notice whole columns^filled with accounts of interviews with^Thad. Stevens, Bon. Wade and other^persecuted representative men of the^Radical party, wherein minute descrip^^tion is given of the appearance, manners,^habits, customs, eccentricities and com^^monplace characteristics of these wor^^thies, together with a brief biographical^sketch of tho persecuted, a contradiction^of all previous conversations with other^reporters, and their real views on the^impending crisis, with a pathetic, high^toned moral disquisition on the female^members of the family, and a tit-bit puff^thrown to the dogs, domestics and ^well^informed elderly gentleman^ who kindly^gave interesting facts connected with^the teething, marble playing and first^love days of the said persecuted. The^^ Fat Contributor^ of the Cincinnati^Times takes them off splendidly in an^interview he had with one of the intel^^lectual giants of Bungtown. The fol^^lowing is an extract:
Hetakes a walk after supper^the^length depending on how far he has to^walk after it.
Hisinvariable custom is to retire early;^he acquired the habit while on his tour^through the South, where, it is feared,^he wasn't altogether understood. In^every place where he attempted to make^a speech he was compelled to retire early.^He saya he don't mind hen's eggs, but^they employ goose eggs down there.
Iread him a report of one of his^speeches in the South; reported in the^l^om;ond Review, and he laughed and^Bald it was garbled. Said he :
I didn't say that labor saving imple^^ments should bo allowed to vote, and^that a thrashing machine was letter^thnn any other man. Neither did I de^^clare myself to be in favor of an equal^distribution of the inflammatory rheu^^matism in the United States among the^people, lor in five years it would bo in^the hands, feet, elbows, knee joints, etc.,^of a few again. But what I did say was^that mowing machines do not digest as^readily aa the common scythe among^the working classes, and that steam^saw mills are not aa healthy a summer^beverage as when worked by hand.
Ithen asked him ought he not correct^the erroneous reports of hia speeches^through the columns of the Bungtown
onBet, aa they might injure his pros^pectsof being a candidate for the Luna^tic Asylum ; but ho only laughed, and^said it was contrary to the established^usages of his life to contradict anything^or pay a cent.
Ithen asked him, in view of the con^^flict that is going on between labor and^the rheumatism, what was to be done
Hewaa thoughtful for a moment rest^ng his massive brow upon tho point of^i steel pen, and then he replied: ' ^^don't know, unless you lend me half a^dollar.
Hisremark made such an impression^upon mo that I abruptly took my de^parture.

Acuriocs fact about the Surratt Jury^has just como to light. It is stated by^me of them that from the first momen^they were locked up together between^the adjournments each day, they were^divided in their sentiments about the^prisoner, eight favoring him and four^condemning. While the arguments ot^the counsel for the defense were going^on, these eight continually sneered at^Judge Pierpont and Attorney Carrington^in their rooms, and when they were lock^ed up to find a verdict, they ballotted^the result being eight votes for acquittal^and four for conviction. Each side tried^to convince the other, but without suc^^cess to either. Then one of the jurors^made three propositions, and asked that^a vote be taken on them separately.^These were^first, that Lincoln was^assassinated ; second, that the assassina^^tion was the result of a conspiracy ; and^third, thatSurratt was in the conspiracy.^Upon the first two propositions the vote^waa unanimous ; but upon the latter the^eight favoring acquittal refused under^any circumstances to vote. These same^men, however, tried to induce the four^to pledge their word that nothing which^took place in the jury room should be^divulged, especially the votes. The^other four, however, would not agree to^this.
