The lad Edwards, who fell down^the shaft of the South American mine^on Friday last, is reported to be comfort^^able and in a hopeful state, and there is^a strong probability that he will recover.^There were shipped from this city in the^moDth of August by Wells, Fargo ^ Co.,^11,265 pounds of ballion, valued at $170,-^673.10.

Hanscome, on the 10th^of June last. The body was found on^the 5th of September and the above ver^^dict returned by the coroner.
TheTeiegravh indulges in the follow^^ing : Mr. Ebert Eastman has just com^^pleted a small yacht, one of the finest^little Ci afts in this Territory. Benjamin^Hampton, Esq., accompanied him from^Bear River bridge, calling at all the^Islands, and landed safely yesterday eve^^ning at the Hot Springs, some two miles^from this city. They encountered a^very heavy sea iu crossing the lake from^the Church Island, and had some diffi^culty in discovering the mouth of the^Jordan river, but altogether they had a^most successful and pleasant trip. Mr.^Hampton reports Bear river to be navi^^gable for the largest kind of steamers^up to within a mile of the bridge. We^presume the day is not distant when the^Great Salt Lake and Bear river will be^enlivened not only with pleasure yachts^but steamers and other vessels for mer^^cantile and passenger traffic. . . .The^same of the 5th says : Bolivar Roberts,^Esq., has just returned from a visit to^the South Pass gold mines. He reports^that soon after the late stampede, Terry's^party returned and others kept follew^ing from various points, including some^from Reese river and from the northern^mines. There were not, however, ex^^ceeding a hundred men on the ground^when he left, but they were still coming.^He met one company of forty men on his^return. There were several companies^organized and in good working order^^the Alturas, the Deseret and the Exten^^sion Mining Companies and the Wyom^^ing Mining and Ditch Company. Sev^^eral small prospecting parties were also^organized and very active and enterpri^^sing in hunting up new ledges. A Mr.^Murphy had put up an arastra and was^^ ^rushing rock from the discovery claim^on the O;riso lode, it is supposed with
Boodsuccess, as the sample brought by^Ir. Roberts was exceedingly rich. They^had not (seen any sign of Indians since^the stampede. The miners, however,^had not prospected any great distance^from the camp, but several companies^were now being formed to prospect^Strawberry creek and other localities in^that vicinity... .The Vedette says the^ten prisoners charged with the murder^of Potter and Wilson, escaped from the^marshal vhile conducting them to pri^^son. Th^y promised to return on the
14thot OctoberWnx Smith . alias
Whiaky Bill,^ was examined before^Judge Titus on the 6th, and committed^to prison to await a requisition from the^Governor of Dakotah. He is charged^with killing Dick Holland and Charley^Dailey, near Sage creek, on the 1st of^June, 1866. .. The Vedette of the 8th^says : Yesterday the western stage was^stopped about two o'clock in the after^^noon, on twenty-six mile desert, this^side of Virginia City, Nevada, by a squad^of ^road agents,^ the passengers and^driver securely tied, and Wells, Fargo^^ Co. a safe broken open and robbed of^$2,600. The robbers then took three of^the beet horses in the team, mounted^them and rode off, feeling pleasant and^jolly.
Thefollowing items are from a late^number ^^! the Omaha Republican: The^Last Chance, bound to Fort I'nion, with^supplies for Indians, sunk on the 24th of^July, above Yankton. Cargo badly^damaged. The boat was raised. She^returned to Yankton, discha-ged the^damaged portion of the cargo to the care
ofMajor P. H. Congar. and resumed her^trip. . . .The steamer Nile, which arrived^here yesterday morning, bring* intelli^^gence that the splendid St. Louis and^Omaha packet, H. 8. Turner, one of the^largest and finest boats on the Missouri^river while on her trip from St. Louis to^this port, was sunk about nine o'clock^last Thursday night, about four miles^above Nebraska city, and it is believed
theboat and cargo are a total loss
Cheyenneis an important point on the^great Pacific railroad^where large ma^^chine shops and rolling mills are to be^erected by the company. It is the point^whence the main branch of the road^will diverge, as also the branch soon to^be constructed along the eastern base of^the Black Hills to the mining districts^of Montana. It is surrounded by im^^mense coal deposits, and there is an^abundance of pine and cedar timber in^the immediate vicinity. A large mili^^tary post is established at Cheyenne.and^it is to become the principal military^depot of supplies in the north west, and^undoubtedly will be thecapitol of a new^Territory to be called Wyoming. The^railroad Company own the town site,^and can give to purchasers a perfect title.
ARomantic Fenian Fiasco.^A re^^cent issue ot the New Y'ork Times guve^a romantic narration ot the adventures^of a party ot Fenians who fitted up a^vessel and sailed in April last from that^port for Ireland, from which they re^^turned a few days since. There were^350 of these bold Union adventurers, all^picked men, thoroughly armed and well^supplied with warlike store!. They^were all believers in the oft-repeated^statement that the people of Ireland^were ripe for revolution, and that if an^organized body of troops, capable of^forming the nucleus of an army, were to^lttnd on any part of the Irish soil and^raihe the (rtMthe entire country
wouldrush to their support. Well, our^adventurous Fenians got to the Irish^coast in safety, touched at different^points, and landed an armed force at the^most promising locality. But alas ! no^^body gathered round them, or knew^anything of them or their project, or^cared anything at all about them. And^so. after a series of mishaps, misfortunes^and daring attempts, in which a number^of them were captured, the bark Plato^has returned to New York, bearing a^body of m^n who have suffered hard^^ships that they are not willing to re^^peat, even for the cause of Irish inde^^pendence.
Committedto Await the Action of^the Grand J cry.^On Wednesday the^examination ot witnesses in the case of^the killing of Potter and Wilson and the^wounding of Walker, at Coalville, on the^1st of August, terminated before his^honor, Judge Titas. The following^named persons were ordered to be safely^confined in the Territorial Penitentiary^on the charge of murder to await the^action of the Grand Jury : Joshua Wise-^man.JamesMahoney, LMmund Eldredge,^Hiram Eldredge, Alma Eldredge, Mah-^roni Cahoon, John Staley, Thos. Dobson,^John C. Livingston, Arza Hintley. The^following persons were examined as witj^neeses in the case and their testimony^reduced to writing in their presence and^in the presence of the accused, by the^Clerk of the District Court : John Walk^er (the man who was wounded), Wm.^Wilson. Jesse Walker, Nephi Williams,^Alma Lewis, John Dalton, Dr. Hamil^^ton, James Huff. George G. Snyder, Ran^sona R. Potter, Hiram B. Clements, Jno.^Spriggs. Win. W. Cluff, Isaac Shaw,^Leonard J. Randall. The Court ordered^a Grand Jury impannelled, to investi^^gate this affair, on the 14th day of Oc^^tober next.^S. L. Vedette, Sept. 6.
Costof the Monitor Fleet.^The^remarkable statements of Mr. Norman^Wiard that the cost of our monitor fleet^^ exceeded two hundred millions of dol^^lars,^ has brought out in the New York^l\mes a writer who appears to know^more about the subject than Mr. Wiard.^His statements possess an interest to^the general reader independent of the^correction they furnish to Mr. Wiard's^charges. From them it appears that the^first monitor cost $275,000. The con^^tract price lor the ten of the Passaic^class was $570,000 each ; there w. re^nine of these, which makes the cost of^this fleet $5,130,000. The four monitois^of the Monadnock and Miantonomah^class averaged $1,500,000 each, which^makes the cost of this class $6,000,000.^The cost of the twenty ^ light dratts ^^was. on an average, $500,000 each,^which makes the cost of this fleet $10.^000,000. The total cost of the forty-six^iron clads was, therefore, $29,015,000.^The cost of the iron clads used on the^Atlantic coast during the war did not^exceed $13,000,000. The above figures^include the cost complete, ready for the^guns, which cost, on an average, $6,000^each ; and the whole of the above ex^^penditure, with the exception of the^original monitor, was made with agreat-^ly depreciated currency, with the pre^^mium varying in gold from 50 to 150.

Thefollowing is the conclusion of Tom.^Fitch's speech at the American Theatre,^San Francisco, on Wednesday evening^preceding the election : ^ O thronging^hosts, of heroes in the past! O Baker^and Broderick, and Tracy and Starr^King ! who that marched to glory side^by side with you falter now ! Who that^hung upon the words of burning elo^^quence that fell from your lips, inspired^by the Heaven-born fire of patriotism,^will shrink here^ Who that, linked^hand in hand with you, trod the mons^^ter Treason, and set the banner of God^and Liberty on the bights of Truth^^that banner consecrated forever by the^blood of patriots^will turn from the^work ^ You who pressed forward in^intestable phalanx then, who poured out^your blood like water for the nation's^cause^for your own,for your children's,^for your country's sake;^I charge you,^let your feet stand firm on the mountains^now ! Let us send to the Atlantic States^on Wednesday next the tidings that no^false persuasions, no cunning schemes,^no specious arguments, no lying asser*^tions, could induce the Golden State to^soil her loyal record, or elect a Democrat^for Governor; that she had maintained^inviolate her honor and her truth, as^pure and spotless as on the day when^traitors hands fired the first gun at^Sumter, and had refused to recognize^as her executive head the man who had^denounced the martyr Chief over whose^death she had wept in sackcloth and^ash68 ]
