TheColorada Miner thus chronicles fis-^tiana in Colorado: Oat of mere curiosi^^ty, and led by that instinct that carries^a local journalist into all sorts of places^in search of items, we on Monday last^attended the first prize fight that has ever^blessed (^) our visuals. The mill came^off two and a half miles above Denver^on the Golden City road, and the parties^were ^ Pony ^ Ward of Georgetown and^Shanessy of Denver. The ^ Pony ^ was^much more than a match for his antag^^onist in wind, endurance and activity^but-the latter could put in the biggest^kind of licks and would soon have kuock-^ed the ^ Pony ^ out of time had it not^been for his alert dodging. The ^Pony ^^was first to tap the claret and would^have worn out his man by his superior^endurance and activity had it not been^for a ^ foul ^ which caused the referee^to decide the battle in favor of Sha^^nessy. Neither party was very much^punished but the ^ Pony ^ had a decided^advantage in this respect. Another^match between the same parties is on^the tapis and (Georgetown is spoken of^as the place for the fight.
Col.Heine and Professor Simonin are^visiting and lecturing in Colorado. Mr.^Whitney is also delivering lectures on^the Paris Exposition. The Register has^the following from his introductory re^^marks : Col. Heine said it was a mis^taken impression that he was a foreign^^er. When he first landed at the foot of^Chambers street he went to the city^Hall without changing his shirt and^took the first steps to secure citizenship.^For the last eighteen years he has been^attached to the Topographical Engin^^eer corps. When the war broke out he^was in Yeddo, Japan, but in fifty-four^days had returned home and was at his^post. He served with distinction during^the war, commanding a regiment, then^a brigade, and in Sheridan's campaign^in the Virginia valley acted as General^ol division. At present he is attached^to the Legation at Paris, from which^he got leave of absence for ninety days^to visit Colorado. The idea only struck^him and Prof. Simonin to come here^about the middle of August, and they^have certainly lost no time.
Adispatch to the San Franciso Bet^says: Thomas Byrne, who shot and^killed Michael Gibbon, alias Welsh, in a^saloon three weeks ago, was sent before^the Grand Jury this morning on a charge^of murder. The suicide of A. M. Chap^pelle, the real estate agent, has created^quite a sensation. He wrote a letter to^Geo. Y. Knox in which he declared that^he felt that he was going insane, and^that he felt that he must kill himself or^become an inmate of the Insane Asylum.^Be crossed to Oakland on Saturday^night on the (H boat and when opposite^Goat Island jumped overboard and was^drowned. This morning Richard Rich^^ardson, while serving a writ on a negro^at Oakland, was shot and instantly kill^ed. Richardson is a policeman, and the^negro had squatted on a piece of land^and refused to give it up. The Oak-^Ian ders have taken the negro and are^trying him by lynch law. Rumor has^just come that he is to be hung at 2^o'clock.
Thefollowing is from the 8an Fran^^cisco Dispatch of Oct. 19 : A dispatch^from Healdsburg says that a fearful^drama occurred on the day of the elec^^tion at Little Lake. Mendocino county,^the particulars of which have been given^by a gentleman who has returned from^there. It appears that a feud has long^existed between two families of the^names of Coats and Frost. On the day^mentioned both families came to the^town armed, and when they met. Coats^immediately fired at and killed Frost.^The firing at once became general be^^tween the families, during which five of^the Coats family were killed and three^wounded dangerously, while on the^other hand Frost was killed andhisson-^in law, Duncan, was mortally wounded.^Not a word was spoken by either party^during the affray.

Milleraville,nine miles east^Bridger. on the afternoon of^Two men of that burgh named Bell and^McAtee, while under the Influence of^^tarantula juice,^ got into a quarrel at^the house of one Sherman, and agreed^to settle the difficulty outside. They^started out McAtee going first, closely^followed by Bell. After they got outside^the door, and before McAtee could turn^around.

The sixteenth round^Budd did not come to time, Bush win^^ning the fight and purse, and his antag^^onist sent for a doctor.

ThePrescott Arizonian has an article^on the resources of Arizona, and claims^for that Territory fine grazing, agricul^^tural and mineral advantages, which^are aided by an unequaled climate. The^development of these resources will be^greatly aided by the opening of the^Colorado river.and the completion of one^of the southern lines of the Pacific rail^^way. Indian wars have greatly im^^peded the progress of that Territory, as^they have all others, but a day of peace^and prosperity will soon come.
TheColorado Tribune of Oct. 16 says:^We saw at Warren, Hussey ^ Co.'s, yes^^terday .twenty ounces of bogus dust that^had just been offered by a man from^Montana. They readily detected the^imposition, and declined to purchase.^It is composed of spelter and brass^filings, and is entirely worthless. The^party offering it for sale appeared inno^^cent of intent to defraud by imposing^bogus dust on them, so they let him de^^part. Our opinion is that the police^ought to investigate the matter a little.^Perhaps the really guilty parties might^be brought to justice thereby.

TheEnterprise says : The Gould ^^Curry Mill is in full blast with a full^force of workmen. The daily average^of ore taken from the mine is at present^100 tons, with from 3,500 to 4,000 tons^already ahead in the ore houses at the^mine and mill. Thus, it will be seen,^that the report circulated some weeks^since to the effect that the mill would^shortly shut down for want of ore was^all bosh^or worse.
GeneralPrice has commenced a cam^^paign against the Hualspai Indians in^Arizona by sending out 250 men in three^divisions, to enter their territory by dif^^ferent points at once.

Fromtfas Clsvslsnd Plsisdekin^A Pertlons Balloon Vorase ij-..^Lake Erie ro*
Anexchange informs us that an aero^^naut named Thompson, who noadul^recently from Toronto, descended aalelt^near this city, the balloon having Lett^taken by a strong upper current aero*^the lakes. Much anxiety was felt U^Toronto as to Thompson's fate, before^the telegram arrived announcing his %t^^landing. Mr. Thompson gives the follow^ing account of his adventure :
The balloon ascended at 4:40, and^from the velocity the balloon was trav.^eling at, Hsoon perceived it was foolish^to try to descend. It soon became evi^dent to me that landing in Canada wai^out of the question, and that all arrange^ments must be made to be driven acruat^the lakes. The first thing that struck^me was to drop the grappel to the full^extent, 120 feet. This acted as a guide^to the distance the balloon might be kept^above the surface of the water, it beisg^now dark, and by placing one hand cm^the rope the effect of the grapnel striking^the water was distinctly felt. With so^open bag of ballast on my knee, evert^time the grapnel struck the water a con^pie of handfulls ot sand were thrown out,^and to this plan slone I owe my owe^preservation and success. The ballui^taken was about 350 pounds. Forthret^hours that plan was carried out, and^then came on one of the most drenching^and merciless rains I have ever felt. I^could not see fifteen feet before me, and^the noise of the rain on the balloon and^the water was such as to entirely un^^nerve me. My hands became numb and^I was drenched to the skin. 1 now be^^gan to perceive my position more accu^rately, though I determined not to give^up until all the ballast and movables^were gone. The rain was making the^balloon heavier every moment and the^ballast was thrown out more freely, till^about ten o'clock, when the fatigue over^came me. I fell into a stupor lor a few^moments. By this time the balloon had^descended to within six feet of the water^and instantly out went 28 poundaof bal^last. The effect ot this was that the bal^loon rose to an altitude of a mile, en^tirely through the rain clouds, and then^the moon shone brilliantly, and in this^position it remained about a quarter of^an hour. The effect of the moon ^hining^on the clouds beneath was such as an^artist might be proud of. The shadow^of the balloon was distinctly to be seen^traveling over the rough and uneven^clouds, giving the idea of a balloon race^Everything now became calm. No longer^the hum of the lake or rain. All was^still, but whether the storm still raged^beneath was unknown. As the oni\ooa^descended, it was evident a change had^come over the scene, The rain had ceased^and the appearance of everything w^^^of the darkest hue ; whether it was s^^under stratum of dark clouds could not^be known. Suddenly a glimmer of light^was seen for a moment; then, withanx^ious eyes cast downwards to perceive^any object, at last small squares with^darker margins were clearly visible^These proved to be the fields and hedg^^and they appeared to vanish as quicklj^as objects passed when in an express^train. A town was at last seen and I^heard the sound of musical instruments^I then called out ta know where I^but the reply was unintelligible! Thej^however, saw it was a balloon. ^'X).u^two miles further on the grapnel eaSfk'^in a large oak tree and held fast, j*1^afterwards proved to be a little vill^ge^near Cleveland. I then called out lust^^ly ; the sounds of persons singing *^^playing music were heard. These proved^to be four young men who had been to^^ball. They were natives of Cleveland,^and as they advanced nearer my voic^was heard. They at once set to^ *0T ,^to pull the balloon out of the woods anu^convey it to a field, where it could oe^folded up. It was then three o cloca i^^the morning.
