PEN AND SCISSORS.
The Denver New. ot Nov. 18th says:
We had the pleasure this morning of
a call from Dr. O. D. Case, who spent the
past season in Montana, from where he
has just returned. He reports business
rather dull in that region-not so good
as in '66. He started home on the 12th
of September. Went to Fort Benton to
take the Imperial. She had dropped
down the river two hundred miles,
whither he followed in an open yawl.
They found the steamer hard aground,
with three hundred passengers aboard,
and entirely out of provisions, except
such game as they could kill on the
baaks of the river. She had left Benton
with only eight days' supplies. He re
mained on the Imperial sixteen days and
left her not far from the mouth of Milk
river, going aboard Sam. How's steamer,
the Gallatin, which had been aground I
and was lightened by cutting away her i
cabins. Whilst he was on the Imoerial c
one man was killed by the Indians 1
while hunting within sight of the boat.
Another man had his leg broken, and
the doctor had to turn surgeon and am
putate it. There was much suffering, t
especially among the families on board, 4
because of the scarcity of provisions. f
He thinks the Imperial will not get out, t
bat most of the passengers were leaving
her. At Sioux City, he struck across
the country to the railroad, which is d
within fifty-five miles of that place, and
will be finished early in the spring
Thence he came around through eastern c
Iowa and by the Northwestern and Un- o
ion Pacific railroads. e
The Arizona Miner says that five years
ago there was not a white man residing a
in Central Arizona, " to-day, after scores 0
of valuable lives have been sacrificed, I
thousands of animals stolen: houses a
burned and whole crops carried away I
by the merciless savage, this country
had a populationof nearly two thousand *
whites, who manage to make an honest (
living without any great amount of aid =
from Government. There are eight or z
nine quartz mills in the county, one t
flouring mill, and any number of water I
wheels and arastras. Besides this, there
are in the region of country around Pres
cott, hundreds of gulches, ravines and
creeks, that contain enough gold to d
make it an obiect to work them, and
they will be worked so soon as we get
the upper hand of the Indians."

EDITOR POST :-A city that be(ars such
-a highly euphonious patronymic as this
one, ought to be something extraordi
nary, and so it is. We have been here
but a couple of days, just long enough
to learn that we know nothing about the
place, its people or their "peculiar insti
tution;" but during our brief sojourn
here we do not intend to continue in
such blissfull ignorance as heretofore,
but propose to inquire into its workings,
under a general order (number forgot
ten) promulgated from-well, no matter
where. One thing certain, we have the
authority of Schuyler Colfax for saying i
that it is the only city in the world
where "the Jews are all Gentiles and
the Saints are all sinners," and for a
while let this much suffice.
After an exceedingly pleasant and;
agreeable journey of ten days from Vir'.
ginia City, over good mountain roads,
and, barring a few hours of storm, in'(
the most delightful weather, we brought f
up in this place, safe and well. A jour
ney of over 450 miles, and, through a
mountain country, without accident to (
man or beast, is something to boast of, I
and we feel like congratulating ourselves
on our good fortune; and sincerely hope
for a continuance of similar luck during (
our absence from Montana. With many, I
many regrets, we bade farewell to the
"land of the mountains," for we could v
not calmly surrender the endearing joys v
of moiain life, part, without a mur
mur, with its "heaven-kissing hills,"
"grand, gloomy and peculiar" mountains, 1
and bid a long farewell to all "The Bud- 1
dyky Boys," without feeling like a lamb ,
going to the slaughter. Two years of a
sojourn in the mountains has created a n
distaste for civilized life (as it exists in j
the States) where all is "vanity and vex
ation of spirit," and henceforth our voice tJ
is for the land where one is free from the o
passions that betray the best feelings of it
the heart, and from those vain dreams b
" 'Chast the slambermr in his sleep."
f Indeed, if it were not for the assurance 1
of an "honest," homeward bound miner, 1
e that "the States had not yet played out
r. altogether." we are confident that we -
i, never could have been induced to return c
to the land where "dirt crevices," "bed- °
d rocks." "night herds," "whisky mills,"
i- "valley tan," "ranch ice," and all .the
rest of this sweetly sounding argot is i
The route between Virginia and this (
city has been described so often by other I
correspondents that we feel that it would t
be superfluous to give more than a brief
resume here. There are several pointa
of historical interest on the way, around i
which cluster volumes of interesting re
collections, which, even if possible, we
could not give for lack of time and space,
. and the same will preclude an elaborate
description of the deep canyons, rugged
cliffs, everlasting snows, huge moun
tains, picturesque scenery, and other ob
jects of interest that greet the eye on (

samari through the valley and narrow
canyon, for about thirty miles, where
the stream begins to feather up into the
mountain springs where it has its birth ;
where it leaves the valley and winds
over the first of the two main divides G
crossed on the road down. The night
of the second day found us safely an
chored at the Junction House, situated C
at the junction of the two main roads hi
leading out from the city, and about 75 -
miles from it. This is a wild and deso- -
late looking spot, which, out of sheer
mercy, the snows of winter frequently
screens from the sight of man, the mail
passing over the house tops. While i
here, during the night, a grizzly came I
down and endeavored to carry off a H
porker weighing about 200 pounds, but
failed, as he could not get him out of
the pan without tearing him to pieces,
which he had already started to do. be
fore we learned that he was near. Upon
our approach he fled and failed to come
back. Like Job's war-horse, he undoubt- o
edly "snuffed the battle from afar,"
for we watched during the rest of the
night for his return. No soap was re
quired to wash the swell of that " bar "
off of our hands the next morning. The RI
hog is dead. R
