Uarabildidefeated, his army slaught^ered or surrendered and the great Chief^^tain so discouraged at the failure of the^attempt to unite Italy, that his depress^^ion is deemed insanity. So probably^ends the revolution, and with it for the |^time, ends the progress of the Liberals.^The people of Victor Emanuel demand^the unity of Italy, and the frequent ris^^ing* in Rome, only suppressed by the^force of arms, is conclusive that the same^feeling inspires the people of the Papal^States. With all the ardor of his impul^^sive nature Garibaldi entered into the^spirit of revolt and roused the hostile^sj irit of his followers by inspiring proc^^lamations, from his island home, urging^them to strike for their rights. The re^^volt spread, the King manifested an un^^willingness to punish Garibaldi alter he^was taken prisoner, and scarce a hin^^drance was thrown in the way of the^revolutionists until the banners of the^liberators flaunted before the walls of^Rome and the Pope fled from the palace^to a castle. Tbe Master of Europe saw^danger in a united, progressive and war^like empire on his borders, and demand^^ing the fulfilment ot the treaty of Sep^tember, by the King of Italy, he poured^his legions into Rome, relieved the Ital^^ian and Papal troops from guarding the^city and the (iaribaldians were vanquish^^ed in a day. Such we opined would be^the result, a week ago, when every trem^^or of the wires was but to add confidence^to the hope that Garibaldi would carry^Rome by a coup dt main and the spell^of Na|^oleonic control be broken. Crafty^and ambitious, stinging under the fail^^ure ot his Mexican scheme, and longing^to redeem his tarnished reputation, the^Emperor has battled b is nei^bl^oringene-^mies by adroitly sending his troops into^the Popes dominions and accomplishing^his pur|^ose. while throwing the respon^^sibility of Garibaldi's destruction upon^the shoulders of Victor Emanuel, and^himself reaping the advantages and glo^^ry. The sympathies of the American^people are with the people of Italy, rash^as was their action, and unpromising^their heroic attempt.
tanaof a large number of the Worst^characters in the Territory, St a compar^^atively trifling expense, and less formal^^ity. The erection of armory buildiags^is a necessity too patent to require more^than a knowledge of the condition in^which the arms now are, to insure the^appropriation for more suitable build^^ings. The recommendation of a statute^making tbe dollar greenback currency^the standard of value, is one that will^create warm discussion, and meet as vio^^lent opposition as any question coming^before the people. The principle is^right, and optnised to the good resulting^from it, there can be but one objection^urged : Merchants would be compelled,^in the absence of the difference between^the greenbackrates whore they purchase,^and the gold rates where they sell, to^place a higher figure on their goods if^so many dollars meant so-many dollars^in greenbacks instead of gold. While^we l^elieve this change in the standard of^value should emanate from the people,^and that legislation should follow rather^than precede the popular will in this^resj^ect, we are also assured that, a ^^^ n-^sideration of the advantage* accruing to^the Territory by the adoption of the cur^^rency system used.whence must be drawn^tbe capital to further develop the re^^sources of Moutana; the many annoy^^ances consequent upon using a currency^varying in value from a premium of fif^^teen or twenty cents to one actually less^thai the value of greenbacks, and under

Inpresenting our views in regard to^the Message of tholiovernor to the Le^r^illative Assembly, we are gratified that,^with a single exception, there is nothing^in its character whereupon any political^differences might influence opinion. In^this, as in the many important sugges^^tions for legislative consideration, sub^^mitted, and the recommendation of ineas-^M^M tending lo promote the welfare of^the Territory, the Message is such as^will commend it to attentive perusal^and respectful consideration by all who^are residents of, or iitereited in, the^prosperity of Mont-in The princ'-pal^topics are Indian ntf'-iirs and the fin ices^of the Territory. The necessity of af^^fording the protection petitioned b^ the^citizens of the Gallatin valley, and the^generous promptitude evidenced by (ien-^eral Meagher and those who answered^his call for vol un vet rs, is too fresh in^the memory to require repetition. That^the people of the Territories would wil^^lingly, if permitted, and at a less ex^^pense than it can be done by large gar^^rison forces of regulars, protect them^^selves in emergencies of a like character;^and that the general government would^do well to leave the settlement of the In^^dian question to those who understand it,^and have never yet failed to give it a^quick solution when unrestricted, is^true. That any blood-thirsty longing to^exterminate the Indians, by any respect^^able number of our poeple, even under^the gross sfad inhuman outrages they^. have perpetrated upon the whites, is^Walse, notwithstanding the assertions off^Train and the Tribune. It is therefore^right that the Government has furnished^arms and ammunition to our Territory^to provide against the recurrence of the^state of affairs existing last spring when^danger was imminent and the Territory^was disarmed and helpless. The Gov^^ernor is Commander-in-Chief, but with^^out a corporal at his command, even^under the most critical circumstances,^except by an arbitrary assumption of^authority, or the voluntary service of^whoever may be possessed of a warlike^spirit. A militia law is essential to give^him authority under exigencies liable^to arise any season, and will have a ten^^dency to retain the arms now in the Ter^ritory, insure immediate assistance in^case of danger, and obviate many of the^expenses, insults and delays incident to^the last campaign. In regard to the de^^sertion of Hughes and party, we do not^entertain as serious regrets as the Gov^^ernor. It cannot reflect discreditably^upon Cols. Howie and Nelson. Those^who resisted the temptation to desert^are entitled to the more credit, and it^was an easy method of ridding Mon-
