adi.::if, to that, if he does not belong

L ,dge City, he must leave his pick and

per week, be kept waiting on the court
f,,r one or two weeks, and pay his own
expenses back again, from 40 to 70
miles, to accommodate gentlemen like
No. 3, and assist in building up the
" Eden " we live in. This Jgl
look like paying direct taxsd. Yet two
thirds of the whole population live be
yond the first named distance, and are
subject to these taxes, not only aaanal
ly, but tri-annually. The pal.. ~pirit
ed Romeo addaces some argumebts (t)
in his letter that are perfectly convino
ing. He does not want the great cons
tv circumscribed in her limits, becaea.
there are " trout " here, and "game,"
and God has embellished the country.
He looks upon "the man, Chas. M. Reid,
as unfit to associate with civilhied be
ings, much lees to live in such a county
as Deer Lodge." \ell, what state of
civilization, or what degree beyond what
is termed civilization, have these self
inflated people about that burg attained ?
le next divides up some tour or five
hundred mills and scatters them as even
ly over the county as possible, some
places sending fifty, where there is
quartz, and other places fifty, where no
one knows whether there is or not, and
leaving the mills upon the ground, to be
put up or not. He takes a flight to St.
Paul, jumps upon the engine, and comes
snorting and bounding across the great
prairies, stopping only to quench his
thirst in the "" Mighty Missouri," and
drops immediately behind "the setting
sun." lie tells us we are "short-sighted,"
' want othices," "making a fatal plunge,"
" posterity will curse us," etc.; and all
ths-e evils will fall upon upon us if we
divide the co:unty of Deer Lodge, and
blessings, rice versa. The man who has
no love for his county, Eli! Why, Ro
rueo must have felt a huge swelling in
his chest when he penned that. His
namesake., immortalized by Shakspeare,
was a dull, muddy, plodding, practical,
sort of a machine in fact, compared with
our modern Romeo. lie spans the con
tinent upon a meteor, and, Alladin like,
calls rillions of untold wealth at our
tct in a breath. Capital-.told, from
the cotfers of the world's Shyllocks, is
trainsiported to Montana, free of freight,
and without saying so much as, by your
lease. Then again trom the manner in
which he treats the future reputation
of l)eer Lolge county, one would sup
pose he was about to put it in his pocket
and take it to the Paris Exhibition.
All thisis is simply nnsense. The peo
p;,e desire :x iiv-iion. amnd those who do
not art' ollke.rs of the county, and at
tacchlees, with a ew wprolperty holders in
and around Deer Lodge City. It they
have I)one -ct and good motives at heart
and mean tot the good of the people, ice
thent join with the majority and urge
a j uliicious division, the act to be sub
mitted to tthe popular vote. This they
dare, not do, and the peotle are watching
thetat and their future.
About town and from surrounding
camps the news is meagre. At the
Uiolden ('able, Hendrie and Plai-ted are
erecting a twenty-tour stamp Inil!. Par
ties owning the Cable have, it is stated,
comleted a contract with Major Ii. & P.
to crush 50,000 tons of rock at $11 per
ton. ('apt. Plaisted stands prominent
as a mill builder amongst California and
Nevada men, and much is expected of
hinl. Rumley & Bugher's machinery
pased through town yesterday for their
mill site up C(amp creek. Several con
tracts have been let to sink upon ledges
in this district, for a distance varying
from fifty to one hundred feet, within
the last few days. Among others, one
upon the Poorman, one hundred feet;
on the Dulnderblurg, fifty feet : on the
'Cantanche, (east end,) titvy feet. and up
ont the Dasliaway. firty feet. Other con
tracts have been given, but the names
nave now escaped the meniory of your
correspondent. The apparatus for roast
ing the ore at the James Stuart mill is
now complete and in successful opera
tion. So far we can only say that all
parties setnm highly pleased with the
yield from the mill, but we have no cor
rect information with regard to the fig
ures. Our population is constantly in
creasing, with a fair prospect ofa rather
lively winter camp.

crash should come at this time. Our na

believe that the public debt will be paid
cff with out any oprresslon. The fact
is, we are lightnihg the load all the
time, more rapidly than could have been
expectea. The farmers are all making
money. Produce is very high, and bus
iness is lively as usual, at this season of
the year. I have found very few men
from the mountains that do not wish
they were back there, or, had stayed
there. Many will return in the spring,
and they will make better Citizens after
coming to the States and returning to
Montana,for they are more willing totake
hold of enterprises that require time,
patience, industry and labor, to aecom

offers more reward for energy and indes

Garibaldi, Is now over 60, having beenr
born in Nice, July the 4th, 1806.
For more than thirty year he has
been engaged in revolutionary enter
Sprises, and in fighting by sea and land,
being a sort of ambitious warrior, the
son of a mariner, and himself educated
to that profession, but is equally skillful
and experienced in the leadership of
volunteer armies. Hislite has been one
of great and varied adventure in almost
all parts of the world-at one time ia
Turkey, at another in South America,
and again in Italy. At one period he
was in the service of Uragnay, fight
ing valiantly for the republic, chiefly at
sea, though sometimes on land. After
wards we find him teaching mathemat
ice in Montevideo. Again, in 1848, he
went from South America with a portion
of the Italian Legion to Piedmont, where
he rendered gallant, though unavailing
services against the Austrians.
In 1849, when the French expedition
to restore the Pope appeared before
Home, he greatly distinguished himselt
by his heroism and partial success.
Having been banished from Sardinia
he came to New York in 1850, and he
supported himselt by making candles in
a manufactory on Staten Island. Aftter
wards he resumed his vocation as a mar
iner, and made some voyages in the Pa
ciic. He rfterwards returned to Nice,
and lived there in retirement untii the
war with Austria in 1859, when the Sar
dinan Government invited him to form
a corps, which became celebrated as the
" Hunters of the Alps," and his services
throughout the war were most impor
The late events in Italy indicate that
the daring adventurer has a strong hold
on the imaginations of the people, who,
whether the- uapprove his projects or not,
always admire a man who will fight for
his ideas, and who does not, like some
other plotters of revolution, content him
self with fomenting disturbances, the
brunt of which is to be borne by other
men. The generous qualities of Gari
baldi, combined with his daring courage
and romantic career, have gained admi
ration for the individual among many
who have no sympathy with his cause.
At the samte time he often neutralizes
the influence of his personal popularity
by rash and indiscreet enterprises.
I How are the MW.ghty Fallen.
It is a remarkable and instructive
fact that the career of tour of the most
r renowned characters that ever lived
closed with a violent or mournful death.
S Alexander. after looking down from
3 the dizzy heights of his ambition upon
a conquered world, and weeping that
there were no more to conquer. died of
ilntoxication, in a scene of debauch. or, as
Ssome suppose, by poison mingled in his
IIannibal, whose name carried terror
to the heart of Rome itself, after having
r crorsed the Alps, and put to flight the
armies of the mistress of the world. was
driven from his country, and died at
last of poison, adminisiered by his own
I hands, in a foreign land, unlamented
('Cesar, the conquerer of eight hundred
cities. and his temples bound with chap

those he considered his nearest friends.
Bonaparte, whose mandate kings and
emperors obeyed, after filling the earth
with the terror of his name, closed his
days in lonely banishment upon a bar
