Heralda ith a commendable seal and enterprise,^has exerted s*J*iy energy, aad at aa immense ex^^pense, to obtain the latest news, both foreign and^local, in ordtrto make it the best and most reliable^newspaper in the Territory. The result is that oar^efforts have been successful almost beyond prece^^dent. We would advise the POST to adapt oar^straightforward and e^^n^pla-Y course, and be less^selfish and leas eavioaa. Remember the time b^a-^ored maxim, wudio tissimus tilt- * ^ The honoris^our* of havlag inaugurated the first dally newspa^^per in Montasa ; and having made of fr a ^urce*^^financialiy. from the start, we have a right, which^none w il! ^dispute of boasting of it Brittle now and^then.^ The above conceited, idiotic puppyism is^in the Herald of Nov. 2d. It is the most silly, vain^and absurb specimen of peacock self admiration^that ever appeared in a paper in thai Territory. In^the first place. Mr. Tilton lias not. within the r**t^six months, Instigated, suggested or taen aware,^until alter its publication, of any article is the Posr^referring in' any manner whatever to the Herald.^and that paper is almost of as little consequence to^him as to its few other readers. The insipid mock^^ery of Mr. JJittee foreign accent they are welcome^to make the moat of. A man has uot the choice of^what shall be his nstive land, but a man of Saxony^can stand the braying of an American mule. Mr.^Whitlatch should know by dearly purchased ex^^perience something of the qirculation of the Herald.^lie stated ta this office, not tear days idcoe, that^^ thecircunwAan of the tri weekly Post was larger^in Helena than that of the Herald.^ Our circula^^tion in that city wss cut down ten subscribers On^the^Oth of September since which time it has stead^^ily increased and is now larger than it ever was be^^fore. The Herald sends seven daily and tri-weekly^papers to Virginia, and about twenty weeklies The^Htrald started out with a flaming announc ement^that it was '^the cheapest printing hou.^e in Mao-^tana.'^ It ran a few weeks with printers workuag^for forty cents per thousand less than the Gazette^paid, when the ^ cheap ^ establishment went by^the board and Mr \^ hitlati h published a state^ment Oct. 16. containing the following assertions :^' Upon first becoming connected with the Herald^last winter. I found the paper in embarrarted cir^cuwutan.ee*. encumbered teitL del*, itt employees un^^paid, and the paper mm the verge of turpeniiem un^lets it received pecuniary aid, to a considerable ez^lent from some source. A desire to promote the^interests of this very community Impelled me to ad^^vance thousands of dollars to save the Herald^from ruin, and large sums of mcaey were devoted^by me to the purchase of new type and material,^the expenses of parties sent to the fcast for^the purpose of procuring it being paid by^me. The Htvald office was in arrears to its work^^men to the extent of some three thousand dollars.^Inuring the past winter, I further advanced tctthe^Herald some four thousand dollars. I advanced the^further sum of one thousand dollars for estabkMsiag^the Herald aa a daily paper. The total amount^paid l^y uie towards the Htrald since I became con^^nected with it. has oat tssen less than twenty-two^thousand diilltrt^this amount like all otbsrs men^tioned in this statement, being paid in gold Not^being aware of the existence of any statute requir^^ing me to comply witb'deaaands which I consider^extortionate, or to publish a paper this n inter at^great expense, and foot tkr bill* mv-ejf, I, in tl^ ^-^fu, prerogative ot *u Aiaarx aa ^ irjaaa, shall di^^.^ tinue t^ e publ Uiou of the Hirntd BB'i! further^. .^ Mr Wli-.tiatcn sold out. It would* tie
difficult,indeed, for any one else but the writer of the^Herald squib to see where the ^Anancial success has^been ar d when they have to boast of their own ^en^^terprise,^ ^commendable xeal,^ and ^reliability^^in the failure to secure a respectable notice in that^respect from its exchanges it is not calculated to^much ^humiliate^' any one connected with the Pos i.^We have given that esrahl*^hment very little^tice from the first. It never would have run four^months i.ad not Mr. v\ MMsBafc, with his l.'uiou mine,^backed it up with 823,000 in gold, and it will nut^sell for enough under the hammer next spring to^square its bills. As a Republican paper it did the^party more injury than good in the late campaign,^and was regarded as adaugerous rash.and indecent^sheet by many leading men ot ilie party We have^been under ui.ny obligations to the people of He^^lena for their generous patronage, and without^^bloviating'' will say only that if in the paet the

CrowCheek.^There has been con-
slderablekitSrest manifested reoently in Jefferson,^Meagher aid OaBatiti foautiea in regfcrd to th ^^CroW Creek mines, the rmrgh of which was recent^^ly christened Radersuurgh. Capt- Evans who re^^turned from there yesterday, say* the mines pay-^very good wages, are shallow and easily worked,^but are not very extensive. About 4(10 miners are^now at work. The town is being built up at the^rate of six or sight oabius per day, and everything^is lively In the vicinity.

andanother ban est, hard-working miner having^failed to secure farther labor in the mines, started^from Highland Gulch fur the tiallatin valley with^their ^ grub and aat-fit,^ hoping to get work for^the winter among the thrifty farmers af that dis^^trict. On their way thither they concussed to stop^s few days in this city, and finding sn old friend^occupying s cabia dowa WaBeha street, they were^with that characteristic mountaineers hospitality,^invited to stop with him while in the city, which^invitatioistbey accepted, sleeping inside, but leav^ing their trunk containing all their eSvnts outside^in a wague. immediately ia float of the door. On^Tuesday sight some unmitigated scoundrel went^to the wagon, broke open the trunk and took there^^from everything of value. Among the things was^one woolen overcoat, a fine pair of bea*er gloves,^underclothes Ac., sod made swsy with them.^This is a serious loss to tb^ boys who are illy pre^^pared st this season for it, snd we skaserely hope^the police will succeed ia recovering their stolen^property for thera and have the guilty parties^jrought to justice..

Claggett,^lieu on the steamer Only Chance whifenn her wav^to the States with her husband, snd was buried on^the banks of the Missouri. Mrs. Claggett's death^will be deeply mourned by a large circle of friends^to whom she bad sttsched herself by her true wo^^manly qualities.^Herald, Atk.
Weda not know certainly that the above is incor^^rect, bat it is Is be hoped so.

The reception was no exception. We^feel oalled upon by s sense of duty to not only say^tbat it was extremely pleasant, bat the only mar^to tbe enjoyment of the hoars, was tbe knowledge^that they were fleeting. The good people of the^ci,y, and those who are sojourners among us, paid^their respects to the Governor and lady, and to the^concord of sweet sounds, grave Senators and stent^burghers, led fair partners through the labyrinths^of Terpsichore till pest tbe ssidnigbt hour. Wt^are informed tbat a more suitable hall has been en^^gaged, and the receptions thus pleasantly began^will be continued under still more auspicious cir^^cumstances.
