i^iT^i:PofT : I am far from seeking^a newspaper controversy, or using the^columns of a newspaper for any such
Lutit does seem to me that a
fewmen in and about Deer Lodge City,^are straining a point to influence that^higaly Intellectual body assembled at^the Capital. Letter after letter, studi^^ous] v arranged, has appeared in the^creditable sheet (the Indtpendt tit,) print^^ed in tli.it place, and all written in the^inm:e'lia*e neighborliood, opposing any^divH m of our county. As this is a^matter ^^f public interest, and is liable^to affect the interests of all parts ol Deer^I^i.lu:^- county, you will, I trust, allow^vour correspondent to represent the^feelings and views of the masses, though^they iive outside the limits of that^^^ Etlen of the Rocky Mountains^^Deer^Ixd^e City. It must be evident to the^dullest brain that he who writes over^the signature of ^ Q. S.^ is pecuniarily^interested in the future of Deer Lodge^City; and fuither that ^County Com^missioners,^ No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 ; also,^that high-toned gent, who subscribes,^^ Romeo.^ und is a near neighbor of ^ CJ.^S^ What a wonderful pity that New^York and San Francisco have been ltv^cated so far from Cottonwood ! ^ No.^3,^ County Commissioner, in the issue^of the 16th ult., winds up his communi^^cation by asserting that he has ^ taken^pains to talk with a number of the heav^iest tax-payers in the county, and all so^far are in favor of the project, nnd will^enter heartily into it ;^ referring to the^movement to get the Territory, through^the Legislature, to pay for building up^and establishing Deer Lodge City as a^permanent county seat. Then ^ No.^3 ^ goes off in a fight of (borrowed)^good feeling, advising all to act aa a^band of brothers^work together for^the common good and one common^purpose, so that when we go abroad and^are asked where we are from, we can^proudly, and without shame on our^cheeks, say, ^* from Deer Lodge Coun^^ty.^ Now reader, if you are a resident^of Deer Lodge county, what do you^think of the arrangement^ We must^either join the Deer Lodge ^mutual ad^^miration^ society, or be ruled out alto^gether. W ell, all right, Q. S ,^No. 1, 2^and 3, and Romeo thrown in^we do^not propose to join. WTe ask nothing^ot ^ Eden,^ (God save the mark !) and^care but little what becomes of the ster^^ile flat. But we outsiders who didn't^find the country first, do propose to^vote our own ticket and manage our^own business hereafter, without stoop^^ing to ask your leave ; and when our^Representatives do not suit us, we will^change them for others, notwithstand^^ing the love of Romeo, the poinard of^Q. S., or the mountuin labor of No. 1,^No B, and No. 3. It is rather singular^that No 3, thinks he would be ashamed^to own he came from a small couuty.^I can hardly see why a small county,^properly managed and out of debt,^would not reflect as much credit upon^No. 3, abroad, as an unwieldy concern^whose scrip is almost worthless. It^would be a matter of grief to the miner^and laboring man, should No. 3 be asked^where he came from and acknowledge^tike fact. But as to the ^ heaviest tax^payers ^ in the county^who and what^are they^ Are they the men whose^names figure in capitals opposite the^largest sum in newspapers 1 By no^means. These men have property in^their possession that is assessed, and^upon which they pay a direct tax ; but^the reader does not suppose that this^direct tax comes directly from the^purses of property holders. The con-^^umer pays it three times over; and in^addition to that, if he does not belong^to the happy family in and around Deer^Lodge City, he must leave his pick and^shovel at the summons of the first dep^uty sheriff that comes along, pay tor^horse hire, and board in any hotel in^The Oarden of Eden^ at $16 to $18^per week, be kept waiting on the court^lor 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 begins to !
looklike paying direct taxes. Yet two-^thirds ot the whole population live be^ I
yondthe first named distance, and are^subject to these taxes, not only annual^^ly, but tri-annually. The public spirit^^ed Romeo adduces some arguments (^) '
inLis letter that are perfectly convinc- j^ing. He does not want the great coua- 1^ty circumscribed in her limits, because 1^there are '^ trout ^ here, and ^gams,^ I^and ^lod has embellished the country.^He looks upon ^the man, Chas. M. Reid,^as unfit to associate with civilized be- j^ings, much less to live in such a county |^aa Deer Lodge.^ Well, what state, of j^civilization, or what degree beyond what J^is termed civilization, have these self- 1^inflated people about that burg attained ^ 1^He next divides up some lour or five
thanth*^y were educated to receive^them. If persons leaving for the States^will take my advice, they will subscribe^for the Post before starting. I would^not be without it if it cost me $1,00 per^copy, and I must say for the credit of^W ells, Fargo ^ Co., that every copy has^come through safely and speedily. Re^^m**nil^ering all my Montana friends kind^ly, I am yours truly,

FORT Bi:\ I ON, JIO.VTWA,
Garibaldi,is now over 60, having been^born in Nice, July the 4th, 1806.
Formore than thirty years he has^bosss engaged in revolutionary enter^^prises, and in fighting by sea and land,
hundredmills and scatters them as even
lyover the county as possible, some ' ^^,n^ a sort of ambitious warrior, the Liberal Advances made on Consignments
placessending fifty, where there is *^n ot a mariner, and himself educated^quartz, and other places fifty, where no to tllat profession, but is equally skillful^one knows whether there is or not, and and experienced in the leadership of^leaving the mills upon the ground, to be ! vo,unt^*r armies. His life has been one^put up or not. He takes a flight to St. ^^ eTreat varied adventure in almost^t'aul. jumps upon the engine, and comes ! 8,11 P*rt* of the world^atone time in^snorting und bounding across the great ! T^^*ey, at another in South America,^prairies, stoppiug only to quench his j and a^ain in Italy.- At one period he^thirst in the ^Mighty ItlssonxL^ and , waa in the *e^ice of Ursguaj, Bgttfr^drops Immediately behind ^the setting j ln^ valiantly for the republic, chiefly at^sun.^ He tells us we are ^short-sighted.^ j though sometimes on land. After-^want oOces,^ ^niakinjra fatal ulunire ^ ' w*rd8 we find him teaching mathemut-
posteritywill curse us,^ etc.; and all^tikeaa evils will fall u|^on upon us if we^divide the county of Deer Lodge, snd^blessings, rice tersa. The man who has^no love tor his county. Eh! Why, Ro^meo must have lelt 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. He spans the con^^tinent upon a meteor, and, Alladin like,^calls millions of untold wealth at our^feet in a breath. Capital^Gold, from^the coffers of the world's Shy locks, is^transported to Montana, free ot freight,^and without saying -^^ much as, by your^leave. Then again from the manner in^which he treats the future reputation^of Deer Lolge county, one would sup^^pose he was about to put it in his pocket^and take it to the Paris Exhibition.^All this is simply nonsense. The peo^^ple desire a division, and those who do^not are officers of the county, and at-^tachees, with a tew property holders In^and around Deer Lxlge City. It they^have honest and good motives at heart^and mean for the good of the people, let^themjoiu with the majority and urge^a judicious division, the act to be sub^uiitted to the popular vote. This they^dare not do, and the people are watching^tliwm and their future.
Abouttown and from surrounding^camps the news is meagre. At the^Golden Cable, Hendrie and l'iai-ted are^t-rectinir a twenty-tour stamp mil!. Far^ties owning the Cable have, ii is stated,^completed a contract with Major H. ^ P.^to crush 50,000 tons of rock at $11 per^ton. Capt. Plaisted stands prominent^as a mill builder amongst California and^Nevada men, and much is expected ot^him. Rumley ^ Bugher's machinery^pased through town yesterday for their^mill site up Camp 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 tew days. Among others, one^upon the Poorman, one hundred leet ;^on the Dunderburg, fifty feet ; on the^Camanche, (east end,) titty teet. and up^^on the Dashaway, tirty feet. Other con^^tracts have been given, but the names^have now escaped the in em .'try of your^correspondent. The apparat us for roast^^ing the ore at the James Stuart mill is^now complete and ic successful opera-^lion. So far we can only say that all^parties seem 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 of a rather^lively winter camp.

Th9Imperial Passengers--Depression in^Prices--A Business View--A Heavy Emigra^^tion Predicted--* word of Advice,
Havingarrived safe at home after^fifty-three days of travel and anxiety,^there was nothing 6ave the greeting of^friends that gave me more pleasure than^to find here several numbers of the Mon^^tana Post and on the 11th inst., I re^^ceived the number of Oct. 2G, only six- j^teen days on the road. The Indians^along the river seemed very kind to us, j^probably owing to our boat carrying a i^cannon and plenty of muskets in sight.^It seems very different here from Mon- 1^tana, and so many changes have taken !^place that it scarce appears like home, j^Business of all kinds is very much over^^done, and every body desires to sell.^Goods of all kinds are tailing, and every^one is anxious to close out. I see prints^labeled 9 cts., to 12i per yard, which is^less than they cost, but merchants are^anxious and willing to sacrifice on their^goods and get rid of them before that,^by some, looked for crash comes. I can^see no sufficient cause why a financial^crash should come at this time. Our na^^tional finances are managed with abili^^ty and success, and the people generally^believe that the public debt will be paid^off with out any oppression. The fact^is, we are lightning the load all the^time, more rapidly than could have been^expected. 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^that do not wish
icsin Montevideo. Again, in 1848, he^went from S ^uth Ameriea with a portion^of the Italian I^egion to Piedmont, where^lie rendered gallant, though unavailing^services against the Austrian*.
In1849, when the French expedition^to r^ store the Pope appeared before^Rome, he greath distinguished himself^by his heroism and partial success.
Havingbeen banished from Sardinia^he came to New York in 1M0, and he^supported himsflt by making candles in^a manufactory on Staten Island. After^^wards he resumed his vocation as a mar^^iner, and made some voyages in the Pa^^cific He afterwards returned to Nice,^and lived there in retirement until the^war with Austria in 18o9, when the Sar-^dinan Government invited him to form^a corps, which became celebrated as the^^ Hunters ot the Alps,^ and his services^throughout the war were most impor^^tant.
Thelate events in Italy indicate that^the daring adventurer has a strong hold^on the imaginations of the people, who,^whether they upprove his projects or not,^always admire a man who will fight tor^his ideas, and who does not, like some^other plotters of revolution, content him^sell 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 same time he often neutralizes^the influence of his personal popularity^by rash and indiscreet enterprises.^^j nu, .1.
Howare the ^^! L'Utj Fallen.
Itis a remarkable and instructive^fact that the career ot tour of the most^renowned characters that ever lived^closed with a violent or mournful death.
Alexander,after looking down from^the di/./.y heights of his ambition upon^a conquered world, and weeping that^there were no more to conquer, died of^intoxication, in a scene ot debauch, or, as^some suppose, by poison mingled in his^wine.
Hannibal,whose name carried terror^to the heart of Rome itself, after having^crossed the Alps, and put to flight the^armies of the mistress ot the world, was^driven from his countrv, and died at^las' of poison, administered by his own^hands, in a foreign land, unlamented^and unwept.
Ctesar,the conqueror of eight hundred^cities, and his temples bound with chap^lets dipped in the blood of a million of^his toes was miserably assassinated by^those he considered his nearest Iriends.
Bonaiarte, whose mandate kings and^emperors obeyed, alter filling the earth^with the terror of his name, closed his^days in lonely banishment upon a bar^^ren rock in the midst of the Atlantic^ocean.
Suchthe four men who may be con^^sidered representatives of all whom the^world call great and such their end^^intoxication, or poison^suicide^mur^^dered by friends^lonely exile !
