TheMurder.The brutal, col
bloodedmurder of Mr. J- D. Davidson, at Elk^Grove, near the upper ferry on West Gallatin river,^on las' Friday aight, has occasioned an intense feel^^ing in this city, and every exertion will be used to^ferret out the perpetrators. Mr. Davidson was^well known and highly esteemed is this Territory.^He wss from the vlctmty of Hew Lisbon, Colum^^biana county, Ohio, and has been ^n the Territory^some two or three years. He was engaged in farm^^ing in the Gallatin Valley and had saved about^^3.000. with which amount he was about to return^to hi* borne, proposing to leave on la^t Sunday.^He was in Virginia in the early part of the week^and wanted to exchange bis money, which was in^5's, 10's and 90**, for large bills. Mr. Samuel Rus^^sell, of this City, introduced him to a gentleman^here having U. 8. coupon bonds, and Davidson^bad partially concluded to exchange for them but^the exchange was broken off on account of the^accrued interest upon the coupons which he did noi^seem to understand. He then said be would return^and exchange with John Richards at Pozeman.^who had large money, and be carried the small^bills back to the valley, having them wrapped in a^piece of buckskin. There were about 83,000 in^the package. Air. Davidson was Senior Warden of^Gallatin Lodge (No. 7) at Bozetnan. an honest, ir-^dustrious gentleman and a good Mason. Mr. May,^his companion, is said to be entirely above any sus^^picion of complicity in the transaction, and ot irre^^proachable character. The number of murders com^^mitted recently is alarming, aud call for such pun^^ishment to be meted out to the perpetrators as will^serve as a warning to those who hold life so lightly^and this atrocious instance would warrant a short^shrift end a long rope to the whole gang engaged^in it. The reward otfeied for their arrest by the^Bozeman City Lodge is sufficient to warrant the de^^tectives in taking such measures that escape wonkl^be an impossibility.
docksolected for his benefit last evening the great^historic play of Louis xi. In so far as it depends^upon the personation of the cruel, crafty, treach^^erous, parricide and king, passionate, vindictive,^and cowardly, shedding innocent blood and gloat^^ing in demoniac rage at bis deeds of damning ini^^quity, and with the dissemblance of a skilled bypo-^crite, t. lling bis Aves at the vesper bells with many^a sanctimonious sigh; in the trembling terrors of^remorse, and the cowardly shrinking from De Ne^moors revenge, the play was all that eould^be wished. The Dauphin, Afarie, and Due^De Nemours sustained their parts creditably,^and were appreciated; but with all this the^play was not so well received as many whose ren^^dering has been less faithful and whose merits were^greatly inferior. ^ Louis xi ^ is a fine drama, and^Couldock's personat'on of the Monarch is, we^think, par excellence his best character outsi.le of^domestc drama ; but with the limited company,^scenery, costumes, stage properties and stage facil^^ities, it ..s simply an impossibility to present the^standard tragedies familiar to the appreciative por-^tien of the audience, in an attractive and successful^manner! This has been demonstrated to a certainty,^and m-ch as it is to be regretted, we think it^will be admitted by artistes and audience that Tor^the present at least we must look for our most^attractive performances in less meritorious plays.^The ca!l before the curtain demonstrated the ap-^precitfti ^n of the acting. ^The Vagabond^ by Mr.^Couldo- k. was the finest recitation of Trowbridge's^excellent poem that we have heard. The College^Boy, w ith its absurd situations and side-splitting^comicalities put the house in convulsions. Mrs.^Langrishe has again appeared, and was gladly^welcorred back by her numerous friends.^To-night, by special request, Mr. Couldock repeats^his great character of ^Luke Fielding^ in the Wil^^low Copse. As this is the last representation of^this great piece here, there will be a crowded house,^'The Youth that never saw a Woman,^ is on as^the Afterpiece. Go.
Theatricals.The ^Jew of Frank^^fort,^ a very neat two act play, said to be founded^upon a historic incident during Wellington's cam^^paign against Paris, was produced to a well filled^house oa Friday evening. There are some fine sit-^uatioas in the play, and the principal characters^by Mr. and Mies Couldock, were very well render^^ed, the last act affording fine scope for their talents.^Oa Saturday evening, ^ Jocrisse the Juggler^^was put on, to another good house. Our people are^awakening to the excellency of the dramatic rep^^resentations now being given. Jocrisse requires^more stage effects than are at command here. The^audience was very much pleased, however, and we^do not propoee to invoke the displeasure of the com^^munity by pitting our fancies against their judge^^ment. ^ B. B.^ brought down the house. Mr.^Langrishe and Mr. Martin were in their element^and made the most of it.
FromLeesburg.^We learn from^parties lately arrived from the Salmon mines that^the miners in the Lemhi Basin are to a man doing^well. About three hundred men remain, all of^whom have employment. On Sunday, the 8th^inet., more money was in circulation than at any^previous time this season. The miners and mer^^chants, as a general thing, feel sanguine that the^camp will prove better next season, and more mon^^ey be taken out than that of 1867. Large ditches^are being brought into Smith's, Ward's and Sierra^gulches, which are now nearly completed, when^those realities will again yield largely. a major^^ity of .hose who left Salmon river this summer,^crying! ' humbug,^ may considerjhemsel ves for^^tunate ho be able to return to that locality next^in]

Arrestfor Debt.^On Monday, the
9thins'., at Bannack, a negro who had been in the^tonsori.il business aud become considerably invol^^ved, undertook to leave the place without settling.^He war followed and brought back and placed in^jail for debt. At his examination, being unable to^fee a lawyer, he called on his friend Bob, another^negro, !o assist him. Bob was sharp enough to get^him acquitted. The negro again left town via^Horse 1'rairie. Five men followed and overtook^him, ai'd we are informed, left him nearly dead,^having;whipped him in an inhuman manner.
Theatricals.On Tuesday evening,
TheWillow Copse'' was put on for the second and^last time duridg the engagement of the Couldock*.^the only Luke Fielding and Rose there are on the^stage. If on the first evening its rendering was ex^^cellent, its last was still much superior. Why^this was so with the principal characters, who^have played it for so many years that it would^seem the most minute expression would be a ster^^eotyped repetition, can only be accounted for by-^some subtle influence, a kind of mysterious agencv^that is not controlled by the size of the audience, by^ti'ne, or place, or circumstance ; a chain of mag^^netic sj mpatby welded by the foot lights, binding^actors and audience closely together and intensify,^ing iuterest as it inspires exertion. We have amend^^ed our opinion of Willow Copse. Not that we con^^sider it less cruel or extravagant. It is too merci^^lessly severe; but the moral of the piece makes par^^tial atonement. Men who have trodden the strewn^battlefield unmoved have wept like children at its^mimic scenes of woe. Miss Couldock's acting in^the letter scene is a Moses' rod that cannot but open^the lountains of the stoniest heart, and they are few^who can completely divest themselves of the seem^^ing reality and attribute to artistic effort that which^appears impulsive and uurestrainablo. In all her^characters she is a careful, truthful actress ; but as^Rose Fielding she is really great. If Air. Couldock^should ever die, which we really hope he wont, his^sign board should be inscribed, ^ Here lies Luke^Fielding.^ Langrisbe, Martin and Norwood were^as precions a trio of scoundrels as one would wish^to meet in an anti-vigilante dark alley. The latter^was immense^avoirdopoisly so, aud the entire^company acquitted themselves creditably. Airs.^Langrisbe as Colin in ^ The Y'outh who never saw^a Woman,^ is responsible for the moHt shockingly^boisterous levity that a Virginia audience has ever^been guilty of. . We liesjxwk its repetition before^the company leaves Virginia- By the way, we^only have three nights more. Let each one he a^bumper It will be long ere we have such enter^^tainments here again.
Equinoctial.Some astute naanufac- j
turerof cabalistic characters and eccentric carica^^turist of fish and flesh, in the interim sfsnMMssl^contests or perhaps during the pardonable lunacy j^of the honeymoon period, several hundred or more^years ago, described a belt in the heavens through |^which the sun |^assed, and sketched upon it adczeu j^grotesque figures denominated zodiacal signs, co^^pies of which have been bunded down to the pres^^ent generation by meaus of agricultural almanacs 1^and astrologers robes, by careful attention to which^superstitioux housewives are enabled io raise good^carrots, and a lot of iifernal old masculine scouu- i^drels dupe sighing lovers in the young bovine pe- I^riod of lbe tender passion. One of the illustrations !^(Libra) applies particularly to mining cumps,^which accounts for the storm prevailing fur the past^few days, as old Sol approaches that point, aud is^generally designated as the equinoctial storm. On^next Monday, the 23d, the days and nights will be^weighed in ^the balance^ ami matters made even^between them, after which Old Sol. like Gail Ham^^ilton, will go ^wool gathering^ after Aries until the^21st of March, when he will find Nox has taken^advantage of him aud there will be another stormy^settlement. At dusk last evening the loot hills^were covered with snow, and the streets were^slushy with the melted flakes that were shaken^down from the dismal clouds during the greater^part of the day.
TheCity Government.^The City
electionon Tuesday passed off very quietly. The^vote was only about half as large as at the general^election on the 2d- The total vote was under 300.^The vote of all the wards fur Police Magistrates^aggregates as follows: Mulfiy. 210; Beery, 133,^AlcKvily, 92; Cowan, 30. For City Attorney,Chiles,^313: Edwards. 134. For City Alarshal. Hurst, 213;^McKenzie, 189- There was no opposition tor the^offices of Treasurer and Assessor- The following^is a list of the City officers elected:
PoliceMagistrateTbeo. Muiffy-^Clerk and AttorneyWm. 11. Chiles
MarshalGeo. B. Hurst
Treasurere. 8- Calhoun
AssessorC. C. Alenaugb
Alderman,1st Wardc. Hampton
Alderman,2d WardH. A. Pease
Alderman,3d Wardii. S. Gilbert
TheBoard of Aldermen met last evening to can^^vass the vote, and the successful candidates will^be sworn in and assume the duties of their respec^^tive offices to-day. The results give very general^satisfaction, and from the character of the gentle^^men, we think all will be tally as well satisfied^with their administration of municipal affairs at^the close of their term, as they are now at their^election.
Withot u Compliments.^The Hele^^na Herald, better known in Montana by the appro^^priate titles bestowed upon it by the Gazette, has^recently flung an inuendo or two at the Post. As^to any intention on the |^art of the proprietors of^this paper to lessen expenses or suspend the Tri^^weekly, it is a falsehood, aud that is all we have to^say about it. The Herald bas all the business on^hand it is competent to attend to if it keeps even^with the Gazette, and we do not consider it of suffi^^cient importance to devote any further attention to^it. It is considerably addled with vanity just now.^After it gets well of that d'sease it will be more re- i^spectable, perhaps.
TheNew Paper^Mr. Frank Kenyon.
wellknown on the other side as an enterprising^newspaper man. has en route for Deer Lodge City-^two presses, a fine assortment of newspaper and job^type, and will shortly commence the publication at^that place of a weekly newspaper, devoted to the^iu general and Deer Lodge
ASpecimen Poem.^It bas been said
tbatman is naturally a religious animal. From^the amount of rythmical effusions of questionable^merit that find their way into print and tbe multi^^tudinous number that nece-sarily find their way to^tbe waste basket or are preserved as too sacred for^tbe public eye by the loving authors, we feel al^^most incl ined to add that the prevailing ambition^of young men and young women is to be a poet or^poe*^ s- The number of ^mute, inglorious Mil-^tons,^ is increased by every mail reoeive 1 at a^newspaper office, and if it could be left to a vote^of those enjoying single blessedness a larger^majority than Brownlow teceived in Tennessee^would in every State denounce editors^except^Dow,of the H'urtrly^as most unfeeling,unapprec^ative mousters, compared to whom Caliban was an^angel of light, and Herod a minis.er of mercy. Wc^do not propose to vindicate the character of the fra^ternity in this number, in fact not at all. That we^are of*tbe vampirian species, sucking tbe blood o^each other to maintain life or satiate a craving for^tbe liquid luxury iu which bandits are said to^baptize their orgies, is undeniable, and so what we^are charged with may stand as an offset to what we^are guilty of.

FromThursday's Tri- Weekly.
Patmv Mauley Again.^We some^^time since published an account of the death of^Patsey Marley. as related to us by Mark M. Bs^^uiaine. The Reese River Reveille discredited the^statement and asked Information from other parties,^basing its doubts uj^on the fact of the length of^time that had elapsed between the tim^ of his death^and the publication of the statement. Of Mark M.^Komaine s character for veracity we know nothing.^His statement may be questioned and it may be^untrue. He is at present in the volunteers, some^125 miles from here, and we have no immediate fa^^cilities for procuring further particulars or substan^^tiation ; but the following circumstance should not^be forgotten by tbe Reveille : In tbe early part of^this year we published a statement of Marley s^death, and gave J. C. Orem (Con) for onr author^^ity, stating at the time tbat it appeared very^strauge that occurring so much nearer Salt Lake^City than Virginia, the Vedette and Telegraph, had^not received the information We discredited it.^Meeting Con. Orem afterward, he stated that he^had received a letter written by Marley s request,^ami that tbe writer would soon be here. Romaine^was tbe person. He came to this Territory and en^^listed in the militia. Coming to Virginia as an^orderly. Con Orem brought him to this office, where^he gave the information as published. We inquired^why he had not before given it publicity, and he^said tbat having writ^n to Con Orem be supnosed^it would become public. He had been in the moun^^tains and is not that kind of a man likely to hur*^an editor's sanctum had he been in town. He gave^tiie name ar^i address of the man who was in com^^pany with Lim, who is now in California and said^either of them would saake oath to the circum^^stances. Not being familiar with the locality we^assume all discrepancies in that particular. There^is one ether thing to be considered. If Patsey Mar^^ley is aot dead, where is he ^ Our first statement^has been published six months or more. The last^account has been copied io numerous papers on^the coast, and tbe letter from Jas. P. BulL of Har-^dysvi i le. At zona, published in the Reveille, is just^equivalent to an admission on his part that he does^not know anything about it. If Mark Romaine will^make a certified statement of the whole affair and^send te this office we will publish it-

TheI.am.kisiik Bknekit.^Mr. Lan-^grishe's benefit on Thursday night was just such an^one as we think any actor would desire^a good^bill, a full house, a fine cast, and a hearty recep^^tion. There bas been no entertainment during tbe^season more highly appreciated or more worthy of^it than that of Thursday evening. ^ One Touch of^Nature^ brought out a new phase of Miss Coul^^dock's acting^a woman with woman's instincts,^vivacity and coquetry, predominating ; a glimpse^of Thespian sunshine, not so grand perhaps but^more lovely than the storm. We have had tsars^enough within the month to atone for all tbe sins^committed since the creation. For some incompre^^hensible reason play goers demand the serious,^tragic, miserable, broken hearted, skull and cross^bone pieces, and managers cater to their morbid^desires and depraved intellectual appetites, sand^^wiching in a smile between two floods of tears and^see them gobbled as dainty luxuries by apprecia^^tive audieuces. Thursday evening was comedy^night, however, and everybody enjoyed it. Lan^^grisbe as the Irish Kir grant took splendidly and^his songs were applaud d to the echo. The orches^^tral accompaniment to ^Wearing of the Green^ was^one of the most astonishing musical achievements^we have ever heard. Mrs. F'itzwilliams made a^most decided hit as Mrs. Grimgriskin- One of the^very best actors of the company we have hitherto^neglected to award the mention his merits deserve,^Mr. White, tbe ' old man^ of the company, whose^characters are unexceptionably well rendered. The^cast of tbe evening gave several of the company an^opportunity to appear to better advantage than in^any bill hitherto offered. The only regret was in^the mengreness of Mr. Couldock's part as Penhold^^er. Mr. Lankrishe will have occasion to remember^his benefit with pleasure, professionally we know,^snd pecuniarily we think we know. Mr. Langrisbe,^accompanied by Mrs. Langrisbe, lelt for Helena^this morning, to make arrangements for a short^dramatic season in that place- Mr. and Miss Csul-^dock and the entire company will reach theieearly^in the coming week. We bespeak for them a cor^^dial reception and generous support in the sister^city.
Turnedup Again.-^Patsey Marley
hasbeen a deal of trouble to get stowed away. No^sooner have we got bim comfortably disposed of^than he ^turns up again,^ and will not down at^our bidding. Since our last issue we have learned^tbat Romaine bss miraculously disappeared from^camp without the usual formality of discbarge pa^^pers. The Vedette also publishes the following^from tbe Arizona Miner ot Aug. 24. which about^settles it in favor of Patsey. Marley expresses a^desire to set up a shoe shop in the vicinity of Ro^^maine. From all accounts there would be strong^competition in that business. Several persons in^this quarter will go at it tbe first opportunity.^Patsey will be considered alive until further ad^^vices ^ Patsey Marley. who has lived in Presoott^shce last winter, has called upon us to say that not^^withstanding tbe reports of tbe Montana Poet, the^Reese Rivet Reveille, the San Francisco Call sad^the story of one Mark M. Romaine, upon which^they are based, be did not die in Death Valley in^November last, either through exhaustion or by^violence, snd was sot buried there on tbe 9th of^'.eat month by Romaine or any one else, but is alive^and kicking, and would be most happy to kick said^Romaine lor his false and; sensational assertions^regarding him.
thescrip for tbe same is yet outstanding. The cred^itors expected that on the arrival of Secretary Tufts^their scrip would be redeemed. Advices from^Washington instruct the Secretary that it cannot^be paid until tbe claims have been forwarded and^audited at tbe Treasury Department. Also that^the vouchers tor General Meagher's drafts which^had been authorized by Governor Edgerton and^were forwarded to Washington have never been^received at tbe department, aud lie has not yet been^credited with the expenditure. Tbe scripoutstand^ing cannot, therefore, be paid until the accounts^are audited by the department at Washington.

They purchased at Marshall ^ Qa*e^Western Foundry Works in St. Louis, a 15-stanip^mill, of exeellant workmanship,- and shipped it per^steamer Zephyr, which reached the mouth of Ala^^lia's shiut the 1st inst. Tbe mill is now being^brought through and will be on tbe ground in ten^or fifteen days. The company own some very-^promising leads in the Hot Spring district, among^which are tbe Hayner. Oleander.

But three of b^r femele friends at^^tended, and the proceedings were conducted by^them-
TheRace.^It would Reem that the

toour advertising columns, under the head of^^ New To-Day,'1 will be found the advertisement^of the fine, full cabined steamer Iluntsvillc. The^stage of the Missouri and the light draught of this^boat, only 17 inches, promise an expeditious and^pleasant voyage to St. Louis. The boat is well ap^poiuted iu every particular for a late trip, and well^officered. Parties intending to take this boat should^start from Virginia per coach on the 21st. and from^Helena on the 22d inst., to make connection with^the last mackinaws that will convey passengers to^Cow Island, where the Huutsville starts from.
NewBook.^A new work, written by
agent eman resident in this Territory, is shortly to^be published. The work is to be entitled the ^Un^expected Heir.^ and will be a charming blending^of historical lore and fanciful fiction, after tbe style^of J. F.Smith. O. P. R. James, G. w. M. Reynolds,^and other authors of like note. It is to be pub^lished by subscription, and quite a large list o:^names have been already procured. Considerable^anxiety is felt to have the work published at an^early day, as it will undoubtedly be one of thril^^ling iuterest. Should it meet with that success^which the author and bis friends confidently anti^cipate. we understand be is to be employed on a^serial tale by one of our city papers.
A.Strange Case.- We have heard
ofa strange attempt at the abduction of a young^girl eleven years of age. under circ.imstancos which,^to say the least, are unaccountable, if aot iuhnmun^and depraved. Through the exertions of Mr. Beid-^ler the child was restored to her family, and joy^now reigns where heretofore there was naught but^gloom and despair. Owing to the peculiar nature^f the facts which surround the case, we forbear^comment, with the hope that should the parties un-^undertake to play a like game in the future, they^will be dealt with in a summary and effectual^manner.
Jewelry.Messrs. Dunlap ^ Co. have^lately received a large assortment of fine English^and American gold and silver watches, diamond^rings, and an extensive stock of jewelry of every^description. The work turned out by this firm,^from native gold, cannot be exoelled in workman^^ship or design by the shop* of Ball, Black At Co., or^Tiffany A Co., of New Y'ork. They have manu^^factured some beautiful setts of jewelry, neck^chains, rings, etc.. and have constautly on band a^large supply. Those going East can take along^with them no more appropriate reminder of the pro^^duct and manufactures of our Territory, than a sett^of this jewelry, or a chain of the moet durable ami^artistic workmanship. Give them a call.
Topography.Mr. Foot, who has for
sometime past been engaged in getting up a map^of Edgerton and a portion of Jefferson counties, in^^forms tis that his labors will soon be completed and^he map sent East to be lithographed. Those^'uerefore, who own leads and wish to have them^ocated on this map should lose no time in calling^^n the gentleman, as they will be able to avail^themselves of the opportunity for a short time only.
SilverCity.^From Mr. Rose we
earnthat everything is moving along lively in^this camp. There is but one drawback, snd ^that^is the supply of water- This, however, wil! be^remedied in a short time by tbe ditch which is being^brought in frem the Prickly Pear.
