fromTuesday e Tri- H'etkly
DemocraticMkktino.^The Democ^^racy put out handbills and runners for s mass meet^tag on Sunday sight, to counteract the Union meet^ing ot the evening before. It was given out that^f Gov. Smith would speak, snd they bad s meeting^' -of 300 or 490 men on the main corner, addressed bv^Mess-a. Chiles, Word. Ritchie, McCullough and^Conway, but Gov. Smith only excused him^^self. Some villainous Black Republican, in sn en^^deavor to injure the Senatorial prospects of the^^Governor, sad circulated the vile slander that the^Governor had made political speeches in Deer^Lodge county on Sunday night, and this, no doubt,^^ led the Democracy here into error. Wo are fully^1 assured that xf Governor Smith did make a speech^( on Sunday night tbst it was a mistake He bad^neglected his watch w hich ran dow n, and having^no almanac along, he thought it was Saturday^niayatt, and the people he consulted on the subject^aided in the deception. We have no doubt the^Governor is very sorry lor his course in this cam^^paign, and we hope there will be no unkind feeling^by tU- Republicans toward the Governor for a fault^that .his watch was guilty of. He made full atone^^ment here by refusing to harangue a political meet^^ing with two churches within twenty paces, where^eervioe was being held, on last Sabbath evening.^Of the ehae rf the meeting wo do not desire to speak.^M these ^s s respectable Democrat in this place who^^ as not heartily ashamed of it and regretted the^tenure performance, we have yet to meet him. Tbey^la *-ut out in the darkness, silently, sadly and crest-^Wteo. glad that night kindly lent her mantle to^Mir tfiiokeoing brushes; and sowe leave them,^int. hoping they will be saved from a future
aGrand Time.^The Grand Union
TorchLight Procession announced for Saturday^evening turned out to be appropriately named. It
waswithout exception, the finest display that has^ever appeared in Montana, the first torch-light pa^^rade that has ever lit sp the mountains of Montana^with the tiros of Liberty. The procession was form^^ed st 7 o'clock. Mr. H. Camming* being Chief Mar^^shal, assisted by F. G. Hetdt sod Charles St. Clair.^Forty horsemen carrying torches were in the ad^^vance, with the Virginia brass band following, then^s number of wsgons filled T,-ith men carrying^torches, transparencies and banners, and a king^line of Union voters marching in double file with^torches.flags,transparencies,etc.. making the welkin^ring with soul stirring cheers, and night vocal with^Union songs from hundreds of manly throats- Pass^^ing along the route of procession, they wore joined^st the foot of Cover street by the Nevada delega^^tion of nearly a hundred staunch Nevada Republi^^cans, to whom were assigned the right of the column.^In proceeding slong the route the procession was^greeted by, snd returned in full chorus, rousing^cheers for the Union party. Wo counted thirty-two^transparencies as they passed up the street, some of j crazy^them very large, snd all painted in Henderson's theory^best style. The largest were mounted in the wag^^ons, and were stingers for the fierce ^Democracis.^^The first represented Csvsnsugh, in the event of^his defeat, seeking information of a tur-clad native^of ths nearest and most direct route to the principal^town of Walrussia. and the reverse side hi* famous^emetic feat in Colorado, with Denver Harding hold^^ing his bead. He looked sick, indeed, and one^could not fail to notice the manner in which Hard^^ing avoided ar.y of the effluvia arising from the^Democracy his Caucasian friend was relieving him-^self of after the approved sea method. Bet ween^intervals Mr. Csvanaugb was supposed to be ma^^king motions peculiar to the occasion, among oth^^ers his famous one that ^Harding be allowed to^vote.^ On the other transparency Mr. Cavansugh^had reached Walrussia, and. with his credentials^showing where he had beeorejected because he was^too purs for the Democracy of Minnesota snd Col^^orado, was soliciting one of the natives to vote for^him for Congress. His posters were elaborately^gotten up and graced the buts of the dusky natives^of that northern clime, while bis approach in person^had evidently been the signal for a general disper^^sion to their ice houses by the members, whose only^discoverable portion was a rear view as they hastily^hunted their holes on hands snd knees. The re^^verse was s picture of a gentleman under a Quaker^hat, supposed to be s candidate for Sheriff of Madi^^son county. The balance of the transparencies^contained mottoes, among which we noticed the^following:
Coloradotailings won't pan out.
Ourchoice^W. F. Sanders.^Montana nod the Union.^The Soldier Boys must be paid.^More postal facilities-^Freedom and the Union.^No Repudiation.^A North Pacific Railroad.^Liberty for all.^Those who love the flag must rule the country.
Wewill sustain the Congress that sustains the
Themottoes and devices were almost innumerable^snd gotten up in excellent style. Several national^flags were carried in the ranks, snd the Nevada^boy* had a fine banner with portraits cf Washing^^ton snd Lincoln encircled with wreath* snd bearing^the motto, ^ The Saviors of the Republic.^ A^number of building* were handsomely illuminated,^among others the Post building had 248 lights in^the office windows, and we here acknowledge the^compliments paid in the good old fashioned manner.^As the long proc^**i. n moved over '.he route, the^brass throated ^freedom shrieker^ on the hill^boomed out its thundering plaudits, till the glad^hills echoed to the mountains the notes of loyalty^which the willing air carried far out to the valleys.^A platform had been erected at How's corner and^draped w ith national colors. Here the procession^halted and the meeting was organized by calling^Judge Iiosmer to the chair. Colonel McClure de^^livered the first speech, and it is sufficient to say^that it w is fully up to the able and telling addresses^of that gentleman throughout the Territory. Gov.^Smith having taken occasion to single Co!. McClure^out for an object of attack in a Democratic meeting^in Deer X^odge county, when Colonel M. was pres^^ent, the latter returned the compliment iu kind to^the complete discomfiture of that illustrious and in^^comprehensible aspirant for cratorical honors, who^has lost his political reckoning and is boxing the^compass on the open sea, unable to decide whether^he will steer for Africa or Caucasis. Col. Sanders^followed in a speech of sn hour* duration, and made^a most excellent address, notwithstanding the^fatijrue of a cam]^sign necessitating s sixty or sev^^enty mile journey, on horseback, snd a *peeoh of^two or three hours, each day for three weeks. The^enthusiasm manifested exceeded that of any pre^^vious meeting of the csmpaigu, snd the speakers^were loudly and frequently applauded throughout-^Corbett'a Glee Club sung several songs and thedem-^onatration was all in all s grand and complete^success- It was by far the largest political meeting^that has convened in Virginia this campaign, and it^is variously estimated that 600 to WOO men wore^present during the speeches, notwithstanding the^large numbers who were at the theatre and the oth^^er places of amusement that happened to be open^on that evening. Not the slightest interruption^occurred, and the meeting adjourned at 11 o'clock,,^the t o ion party in glorious good humor, snd if the^Democrats did not like it, they at least said or did-^nothing to manifest any diep leasure.
TheWar on the Border.The
severalcommunications published in to-day's pa^^per in regard to the Indians on the Yellowstone^tributaries, leave no doubt that the war has begun^in earnest. The dispatches confirm the reports of^hostilities near Forts Smith and Phil Kearney, and^that the cloud of war, long gathering and porten^^tous, has burst in relentless fury on our borders.
actingof Mr. and Mrs. Lsngrislie in particular so^faultless, that Romeo and J uliet iu modern costume^would scarce detract from the eujoynient of the^play, although we confess that Mr. L ^ couutwnance^is sot cut out according to the accepted idea of the^dashing, amorous Romeo. Mr. L. is a natural com^^edian, and his capabilities are cultivate,! until he^can keep the audience in hysterics five minutes^with s single expression of that indescribable phiz-^It is not detracting from the merits of the other^members of the company that we award the honors^to Mr*. Langrishe. We were somewhat astonished^when informed that she wa* to take the leading^parts, and it was not until she appeared upon the^stage, the uprightly, coquettish girl, with all tbeap^^pearance of a boarding school miss in love for the^first time, face as bright as a May morning, and^every movement girlish in the extreme, that we^could admit the possibility of her assuming success^^fully those characters ^yet she does so with a per^^fection seldom ^quailed. We are informed that her^rendering of Charlotte Cusbman's favorite charac-^!^^- y, ^ g Merrilies is one of her best impersonations,^Charlotte Cushman had versatility long experience^snd every advantage that art possessed, yet her^attempts iu the more juvenile pieces were failure*,^as far as appearance went, many years since, when^^he bad few more year* to contend with than Mm.^I*angrishe. Mr. Biowne possesses an excellent^stage figure and a good appreciation of his charac^ters ; but be baa fallen into that peculiar stage tone^that should be tabooed in comedy at least, and in^hi* side speeches or when taking the audieuce hit^his confidence, has that other unfortunate habit o^looking over them. The avoidance of these things^would, me think, add materially to hi* otherwise^fine acting. Mr. Martin has the faculty of making^up the most horribly ugly frontespiece imaginable^Iu playing second comedian with Langrishe as^first, he is necessitated to make hi* characters broad^but in doing this avoids that vulgarity so often used^'Slby more pretentious actors. Martin is a favorite.
The r*Phe entire company acquitted themselves credits
bly,and as the strength of the company is increased^by new accessions, we shall expect to see placed^upon the stage some of the standard plays which^the limited number of the company at present pre^eludes.

They still, however, had hope* of tho^balance of the ticket, snd as one repeated to the^other tbst ^ it was only Sanders running ahead of^his ticket. ^ that other would give a ghastly, sar^^donic smile sad gssp out. '' Oh I Lord, 1 hops so,^I feel so humble. When the votes were counted^snd certain gentlemen were scratched, they imme^^diately recognized a customer whom tbey had quit^giving credit to ; another whom they bad fined in^the police court; another whoso mining news bad^been written up to his disadvantage ; and atill an^^other who had been dunned for an old debt ; but^when nine-tenths of the ticket* were found^scratched the reaaona were exhausted, and they^fell back unanimously upon the expression ^it's^entirely unaccountable.^ If all their ancestors^had been buried two hours before^all their rela^^tives disfranchised by the reconstruction bill, snd^all.their fees cut down by the annullment act they^could not have sdded one line of despairing aorrow^to their elongated visages, except the receipt of^intelligence that Congress had refused to pay the^ten million for Walruasis.

/FromSaturday' Tri- Wttkly ^v.^Military.^A courier from the front
bringsinformation that Neil Howie's command was^all back in Camp Meagher, preparing to start on^an expedition on the ifth inst. The information ia^very indefinite, and no results are given of the ad^^vance from Boulder to the Stillwater. A white^man's sculp was found in possession of the Indian^killed at Boulder creek. We had hoped to boar^that Col. Howie had administered s little correction^to the aborigines of that section, but it turns out^like some of the advances of the Army of the Poto^^mac in the earlier days of the war. We fear that^unless the expedition gats off soon and cut* loose^from the reach of couriers, that the MSjasa*. con-^^ultstiou of Sherman St Co. st Saint Louis, when^it was determined to suspend active hostilities and^^end out runners convening the hostile tribes for^grand pow wows, will result in orders from De^^partment headquarters prohibiting auy moveineut^of the volunteer*. Thia consultation resulted in^the adoption of a series of resolutions offered by.^Mierman, and orders issued to the several depart^^ment commanders. The Indians are to be con^^vened st two specified points. The first is to meet^at Fort l.aramie Sept. IG, an^l runners are now out^collecting the Mian. The Government ia to feed^all who assemble. The second at Port Lamed^Kansas. October 15th. De]^artment corumande^are instructed to defend the great routes and sett^merits bat not to invade Indian country. Thii^intended as a pacific and conciliatory measure, but^the instruction* to commanders to protect the great^route* of travel i* the most warlike order Sherman^has yet issued. If he finda it so interpreted it will^be at once rescinded without doubt. These ^Coun^^cils ' will be a fat tlung for the traders. At the^council last summer at Laramie, the sutler made s^good thing, and no doubt had plenty of partners.^Over two tons of lead and ponder was traded to^the Indi'tu*. Several thousand buiT.ilo robes, be^^sides innumerable furs, skius, etc., were received^inexchsnge; th^ rubes costing a* high as tueuty^cents a piece. The Indians uow have all the year's^furs and robe* ou hand, nod the same farce will be^played to end in another tragedy aa aoou as the^ted devils ere supplied with ammunition.

TheElection.^The election yester^^day was without doubt the most closely contested^or.e osier held in Virgiuia, sad from the o]^eaing to^the erasing of die poll* the two parties were untiring^snd earnest in tbeir efforts to bring out every voter^And see sum safely deposit hi* ballot. Men wore^earnest, the interest manifested wss intense, and^the candidates sad tbeir friends worked as though^the destmy of tbe nstion bung suspended on tbei^individual effort- A considerable quantity of tbe^tetoxicatiag fluids was imbibed, as usual, but the^nuenber of really drunker, men during the day was^Tery small- Until late ia the afternoon, everybody^saxeept the ^crsay slozen *' wfco are in every town,^wss in exeeilent'good humor, sad tbe manifesta^^tion* of a belligerent character were not of suffi-^c ent importance to snake a note of. Toward eve^^ning, as the contest approached the close snd the^rlaids took effect, mea's faces wore a more serious^look ssd some of the craxy dozen were spoiling for^si fight, but none occurred. Prom tbe time tbe polls^opened unUl tbey closed there was not a fight i n^Virginia that wo are aware, and in this, the most^cluredy contested election ever held in Tirgiuia. it ia^an aenorsble record for both parties. We believe^that there were not over four voters in the city or^precinct but csst their baii^ :. yesterday, and tbe^total v-rte polled wss 907, Dearly double the number^rxgwed tsst spring st the Mayor's election.

bringsthem twenty-five miles nearer our vallies^than when tbey killed Weston and Hodges s few^days ago. Tbe number qf men who have left Port^Smith for the Oallatin, and the number missing^who were known to be prospecting in tbst region,^leavea no doubt that the inhuman thirst for blood^has been gratified if not satiated by the aavages.^While the heroism of Neil Howie snd his little^party in going out in search of Weston snd Hodges^and their arrival in time to says the three men^surrounded and almost exhausted by hunger and^wounds, cannot be too highly commended, or a^grateful people express unmerrited approbation of^their gallantry. We confess that it is with some^lawgiving* of disaster that we swsit further infor^^mation fr.im his small and divided command. That^he was within twenty-five miles of the Stillwater,^sn easy night's ride, where several hundred Crows^were encamped a few days previous, snd tbst the^spirit of the men and their leader would give assu^^rance that the daybreak fbllowiug the date of Col.^Howie's note would find him snd hia fifty men oa^the banks of the Stillwater, is not to be contem^^plated wit rout acme apprehension that tbey might^be too largely outnumbered. It ia only twenty^milea however from Camp Meagher to Boulder^Creek, snd ia ten or twelve hours from the time^Howie sent hi* messenger, Cant. Nelson, with tbe re^^inforcements, could be at the plsce where Howie^left his pack train. The chief danger lies in tbe^thorough acquaintance the Crows have with that^country, snd their opportunity for concentrating on^tbe three detachments separately. Capt. LeMott^has 150 regulars st Bozeman ; Col. Howie should^have st this time 250 volunteers, and these force*^once together, they are amply strong to drive all^the Crows across the Big Horn. The wsr, for^months kept away from our vallies by tho pres^^ence of the Montana volunteers, is sweeping up^closer and closer, and it is with honest pride in our^brave boys snd confidence in their gallant loader^that we learn they have met tbe aavagea hslf wsy,^even with the little command depleted by absence^on furlough, given on re-enlistment, to a handfull^scarce strong enough to hold Port Meagher. May^tbe laurels of victory they so well deserve perch^on their banners.

j-resentsensstion is the International Hotel. Mr.^J. r. Sutterly, well known in Idaho, Utah and No-^^sds, as a popular and enterprising landlord, hav^^ing entirely remodeled, refitted and furnished in the^most complete manner the establishment known as^the Csatner House, opened it up for the reception of^boarders on Monday last, and put over fifty regu^^lar boarder* on hi* book* the first day. besides an^innumerable host of transient customers.

The International spreads s^table unexcelled in tbe mountains, with attendants^ss accommodating as a candidate before election^and as nimble ss tbe axiomatic sixpence. Besides^this, tbe rates are oaly $U per week in greenbacks,^snd with all these considerations in its favor it is^not to be wondered at that half the town is talking^about the International. It is a good place to board.
