Sahl Lake City, Dec. 12, 1867.
We have received the following note
from Prof. Ward, and are gratified to
learn that the seriously implicating ru
mors have no foundation in tact. Who,
may be the "parties" referred to, we
are unaware, as like an infection, the re
ports seemed to be all around as soon
as started. %\ e are pleased to bear wit
ness that the conduct attributed to Prof.
1Ward was singularly at variance with
his established reputation as a gentle
man of law abiding proclivities.
EDITOR POST : On coming into Vir
ginia yesterday evening, I was much
surplrised and chagrined to hear in the
mouths of many of your townspeople. a
report most prejudicial to myself and to
my character as a law-abiding citizen.
Report said that I hind gone with a force
,f men, armed with guns and other
weapons,. to a certain mining claim, had
torcibly driven away the workmen there
engaged. and had taken possession with
imy own men. This report, circulated
with great anriduitv.and with seemingly
malign intent, by a party who had every
oppo,)rtunity to be aware of its falseness,
is of too serious a nature for me to pass
in silence. Let me at once deny it in
tot,,. The facts are these :
My neighbor. Mr. Isaacs. had express
ed his intention to go to work immnedi
ately on a certain part of the Boaz lode,
which lie claimed as belonging to him
by virtue of a certain lease, and which I
ciil ilned as my own by purchase. W ish
ing to gain a point by being myself first
in possession of the property. I repaired
there' at the early hour of five A. M., ac
conmpanied by nine of my workmen, car
rying picks. shovels, and other necessa
ry tools.and went to work on the ground
whlre we have been in busy labor and
peaceful possession ever since. We
tfoind no ,ne whatever at the mine, and
thus did not, as stated of us, drive any
one away. Early in the forenoon, three
men from the other side did come to
work there, but they comprehended the
situation at once. and with much good
humor acknowledged, as does Mr.
Isaacs, that we were far too matinal for
their stvle. So much for the story.
There was no attack made or intend
ed. nor indeed possible, since none but
ourselves were there. And I wish to
state distinctly that not one man of my
little. party had any gun. pistol, sword.
lance, spear, cannon, lub, bomb,. rocket
or other wealsn of offense or defense,
with him on the occasion. This is a
thing which I would positively have
forbidden. I note this with some em
phasis and feeling. IIas not the moral
sense of our Montana community been
t.oo often and too rudely shocked of late
by heart-sickening rencontres and mur
ders which have followed the free dis
play of fire-arnms, and their use in en
deavoring to co)nquer by brute force,
rights which the law ever stands ready
to vindicate. Ged forbid that I should
add the influence of one man towards
countenancing these proceedures. My
business as agent of the Midas Mining
('ompany, is mining. At present I am
working the discovery claim on the BLoaz
lode. Yours truly.

Mr. 11. 0. Morrill, of Baltimore, has
constructed . minarvel"us clock. His ex
tra time tor t!h last fourteen years has
be.,n devoted to its perfection. The
space necessary to display its capacity
and operation is nine feet by eighteen
feet. it runs eight days and performs
as follows : It wakes up a household :
strikes the quarters by four automatons
on four bells; sounds the alarm to awa
ken the master of the house; lights a
lamp andt kindles the fire in the stove ;
a carriage is seen coming along a moun
tain road, calls at a place of business,
and gets a clock left for repair ; the bell
is rung to awake the servant, who rises
in the presence of the audience, and
draws the curtain of her chamber to
make her toilet : the carriage is again
seen upon the road ; when near a rocky
covert a robber springs in front of tbe
horses, and a fight ensues ; a farmer by
the roadside, not seeing the robber.com
mences to belabor the horses, when a
hunter in the distance comprehends the
situation, fires his rifle at the robber,who
escapes to the mountain, and the car
riage, with its inmates, drives on to its
