jlower claim, McCaulay h Co., have don* con^^siderable work, and have in some flume. They^get good prospect*. The next company above^1 that have done much work is the Leighton^^ Company, which is No. 6 below discovery,^; (the companies are numbered, not the claims,)^. and is 24,000 feet in length. They have in^j 300 feet of flume and expect to reach bed rock^in two weeks. They are now passing through^! * heavy deposit of buffalo bones. Next above^, is the Myers Company, holding ground 1,200^| feet in length. Work is being pushed vigor^^ously ahead, with about 200 feet of flume in,^| and confident ot soon ^striking it.^ Above^1 them is the Rogers Co., having 1,000 feet,^with 84 feet of flume. Next above is tha Nel^^son Co., with 800 feet of ground and 240 feet^of flume in. Above them is the Scribner Co.,^: which extends to the lower line of the Hughes^A. i enneberry Co. There has been but little^gold found in the main gulch above the month^; of Dead Wood gulch, which comes into Snow^' Shoe on the right as you ascend, a short dis^^tance above the Hughes claim. The Stoby^Company's ground commences at the mouth^ot Dead Wood and runs up that gulch 26)00^1 feet. They are at work and taking out good^| pay. Three men at woik five days took out^: $700, and they were not in their best ground.^I One of them in looking over some tailings^! picked up a nugget weighing $60. Their^I ground is not for sale. There is but little^water in the gulch, and in order to work their^ground they have put in a large reservoir at^the head of their claim which is supplied by^water from Snow Shoe. First above this^cla'in is the Bailey Company, but at they have^no water now they are hauling dirt to tha^water and washing it, and as the dirt pros^^pects from fifty cents to one dollar to the^pan, and they haul big loads and many of^tbfin, I suppose they are doing very well.^There is no work going on above them in the^gulch. At the head ot this gulch on the right^going up. i* the famous Bailey quarti lead,^from which all the gold in the gulch is sup^^posed to emanate. It is now over a year^s-ii.ceBailey and company commenced hunting^for the main ledge, having found rich float^rock and other indications. Last winter they^sunk a shaft 106 feet deep, from which sever^^al drifts were ruu in different directions, one^of them 96 feet long, but they did not suc^^ceed in establishing any well defined lead.

Governorof Montana Territory :

The^such as stealing stock and other prop- | side of the ledge that is laid bare presents
veryfine appearance, and is thickly studded^with gold which appears to be disseminated^throughout lhe^entire mass. Marcos, who is^a practical miner at long experience in the^mines of Mexico and Nevada, is very much^elated at his supcess, and says that this is by^far the richest gold quarti he ever saw, and^baaards the opinion that it is the richest in^the world, which I have no disposition to^doubt, judging from the very rich rock, tons^of which is laying at the mouth of the cut.^His choice specimens are well worth a visit^to the mines to see. A shaft will be pnt down^on the lead far enough to prove that the lead^does exist, and then arrangements will be^made to procure a mill. Extensions are lo^^cated in all directions for miles around, and^hundreds of incipient millionaires are build^^ing magnificent ^ Chateaux de Espagne ^ on^their prospects. More anon.

HowPaper Collar* are made.
Acorrespondent describes the process^for making paper collars and cuffs at a^factory in Biddeford, Me. The paper^from which they are formed comes in^large sheets of the required thickness^Some forty of these are placed one up^^on another, and then moved under the^die which cuts through the whole, giv^^ing the requisite shape to forty collars.^The paper is then moved under the die^again, and forty more cut, and so on to^the end. The buttonholes are next made.^Some half a dozen collars are placed un^^der the dies, and three holes are cut in^stantly Next the collars are placed one^at a time under a die or mould which^impresses the stitching upon them and^marks the line by which the collar is to^be turned or doubled. The collars are^then doubled or turned over one at a^time by hand, run through a machine^which presses them and they are finish^ed. They are then packed in boxes of ten^each, and ten of these boxes packed in^a larger one, when they are ready for^market. The cuffs are cut with dies af^ter the manner of the collars.the button^holes cut by similar method ; then they^are stitched and then packed for mar^ket. Three styles of collar are made

A few days since between^Flathead lake and Thompson's river, a^party of prospectors were attacked by^these Indians and four of the party kill^^ed. They have burned most of the^wintry tor a distance of more than two^hundred miles, destroying most of the^grass, and in some instances large quan^^tities ot hay in the stacks. These fires^are still raging with great fury. Our^population is scattered over a large ex^^tent of country, and in case of an out^^break would without doubt be murder^^ed, being almost entirely destitute of^arms and ammunition.
We,therefore, earnestly petition that^a sufficient amount of arms and ammu^^nition be furnished this county to arm^and equip say two hundred men.

^ru^ Hamlin Dead.
Insteadof Hannibal Hamlin dying in^New Orleans of yellow fever it proves to^have been his son. General Cyrus Ham^^lin. The St. Louis Democrat speaks of^.him as follows :
Thedeath of General Cyrus Hamlin,^which occurred at New Orleans, of yel-
mlytwenty-eight years of age, he had^gained more than ordinary distinction in^the army, and was a prominent leader^among the Republicans ot Louisiana.^He was a son of Hon. Hannibal Hamlin,^ex-Vice President, and inherited all his^lather's sturdy and uncompromising rad^^icalism and fidelity to principle- He en^^tered the army in 1862, and served on^Fremont's staff in the Virginia cam- j^paign, as Capt. and A. D. C In January, i^186a. he was promoted to be Colonel of.^the Third United State* Volunteers^ |^afterwards the Eightieth IT. S. C. T. He^served with Ids regiment, which was j^one of the best in the army, until 1864, j^when he \* as promoted to be a Brigadier^General, and placed in command of a^division ol colored troops in the Depart^^ment of the Gulf. He afterwards was^^n command of the district of Port Hud^son and Baton Uouge. After he was^iuustered out ot service, he settled in^New Oeleans as a lawyer, and became^prominent in the politics of that State^^indeed, we believe that he would proba^^bly have been chosen to Congress from^4h Hsoptad District of that State, had he^lived. He was a man of pure and noble^character, frank, sincere, and straight^forward, and while he made few ene^^mies, he had hosts of friends.
Theaverage size ot the necks iB 144^inches. Some collars are made 16^^inches long: but most are sold of 14$, 14^and 15 inches. The present capacity of^this manufactory is 25,000 collars a day.^but with a new cutting machine now^nearly ready, its capacity will be more^than doubled. Most of the work is done^j by females. Twelve hands are now em^^ployed, but in the autumn double the^number will be required.
Tnpresent Duke of Wellington is^printing the whole of his father's papers^for safety, not for publication. The^Duke puts everything into type, then^strikes out such passages as affect living^persons too closely, or such as it might^be indiscreet to make public.
