THEATRICAL.. - Naval Engagements,
one of the neatest little dramatic gems mounted in
King's English. and The Dumb Boy of the Pyr
enees. a line Scenic piece, was produced at the The
atre on Saturday evening, and rendered in a higbly
excellent manner to a ver.- fair house. Either of
them will bear repeating. Last evening The French
Spy, a sensation spectacular play, that has groped
its way up to be considered almost standard, was
presented to a densely crowded honseand received
with well merited applause. Mr. Langrisbe de
serveseredit for the superi mannaer Is which the
charming incidentals to the various plays
brought out He has the preliminary advant, e of
nosurpassable music, a company free from jealous
e.a, good wardrobes and a big heart. Mrs. Langrisbe
in the triple character laft evening of Soldier,
Arab. and Mathilde, the loving French girl.
gathered freed laurels to add to her crown of sou
cem. The attraction of the piece is in the graceful
mevements and poees of the Arab boy. It requires
a faultless figure, grace. action, endurance and ex
pertness with the broadsword. It is not the fault
of the Ilay that it has been debased by these whose
proper sphere is not the stage. Mrs Langrishe's
Hamer we conceive to be a better rendering than
Madame Celeste's, for whom the play was written,
and equalling in graceful motion, those who "ave
made it a specialty. The combat between .a
Aamed (Griffith) and the ergeeat (Martin) was
cheered till the echoes repeated it. Mr Brown's
Achmet Bey was one of his best renderings.
Messrs Collins, Mortimer, White, and in fact the
ednre company, seemed to vie in maing the piece
what it was a splendid success. It will be repeat
ed to-night with a favorite farce. We advise all
to ro and see it. as it is the last rboesentation.
ON THE WRONG TRACK.-The (faateU
holds us to task for a cup of kinfodness held to the
lips of the Democratic Legislature of Mont. an,
but diverges from the law, upon which the article
was based, to a discussion of the principles which
the law embodies. We have fought over that
ground several times, and hold the Seld. The ex
pres latetios of the GaOate to drive s from
t March 4th. '69, does not alter the case, but will
the Gamses just figure up bow soom the Demoer
cy will get control of Congress even if they should
be universally successful at the ensuing elections.
The resalt may astonish you if you were booest is
tie assertion. We stated the case to the Legisla
tore as a question of Law. They aeeepted it as
eaoh, and the bill to amend the election Iw passed
the House is an hour after the PoeT was placed on
the desha The Oesesas should be as willing to
submit to the Statutes of the United States as re
the Legislators. The Gazette ieUsrms us paues*
ally that we were bore in Mabahbusetts, and our
grand Sthers and grandmothers bum d witches
around Salem. Now if it is any gratiflation to
the Gtase to be assured that we are not a diabol

SKA.TINo.-VWe have a skating " rink,"
sided by the everlasting hills, covered by the bluei
canopy of Heaven and lit by the d;tmond blaze of
countless worlds. To be more precise, a party of
gentlemen yesterday prepared a skating pond in
the gulch Just below Nevada street, and by Sat
urday. if the weather is cold, there will be three
acres of iceand an opportunity for all to speed on
wings of steel, free of expense, and numberless
falls thrown in. There was a very little talk. a
good deal of work, and the thing is accomplished.
Its a very good way to do things.
No GOOD REASON.-The House, after
two day's consideration of the Civil Practice Act,
finally sent it up to the Council yesterday. We un
derstand there is a division of sentiment in that
body, in anticipation of remaining for a length of
time without eopies of the law. ;The entire laws
of Moutaaa will be printed and distributed by the
first of April, 1ti6. Arrangements are already
completed for their publicatiou.

vamosed in a few moments after the bonds were
signed, and at last accounts was near Diamond
City. Whether it is his intention to escape or
merely to keep away from the vicinity of Morse's
store until the time of trial, we are not informed.
THERE BEING NO OBJEC'TI:)NS.-In

Leigh Hunt's advice to "hang a picture on your

There is now on exhibition at Tootle. Leach &

HANGING ON.-The Legislature still
holds the even tenor of its way, and shows pre
monitory evidence of utter demoralization. Crn

understanding that the session was to only continue
ten days, and it wes essential to the interests of the
Ter-itory that eerlin imlartant L::Is should .w
duly considered, which could be done in that leng th
of time, there are now evideaces that it will not ad
journ within the specimed time, but continue to
drag out a tedious, expensive existence, in grant
ing divorce bills and passing spitelrl resolutions.
A resolution yesterday passed the House to adj,,ur'n
at 12 on Monday. The Council tatbled it. This
Igsloature has earned an honorable repultatio fr
industry and celerity in the dispatch of business.

MIIcCLURE vs. GREELEY.
We publish to-day fle concluding por
tion of a letter written by ('ol. A, K.
M3c('lure and publihlied in the New
York Tribune of Nov. 21. The omitted
portion is a condensed history of the
Indian atrocities of the last few years:
a citation of the only instances where
enduring peace with them was obtained.
literally conquered a" the point of sa
bres and the rifle's muzzle; the lessons
taught the Government by the bitter
experience of her pioneers of civilization
and territorial development, which has
been refused the eye of government,
though rendered horribly distinct in
the lurid glare of a thousand burning
homes, where the blood of white victims,
Iutchered in savage ficnlishness,tlowed
as fret as our mountain streams: show
ing hwi'w useless has beenl the expendi
tures for maintaining weak, isolated
garrisons on the plains : how ineffectual
was Sherman's 10000 men to protect
even themselves, and what infamous
leagues with red handed barbarity are
the powder-giving, pow-wowing mon
strosities enacted by sanction of the Uov.
ernment and mis-named peace councils.
The balance of the letter needs no inter
pretation. It is a candid, comprehen
eive, practical view of the situation, and
the suggestions will meet with the
heartiest concurrence of the entire west.
A more able, correct and complete arti
cle on Indian affairs has not appeared,
and the West rests under an obligation
to tbe writer for his noble effort. No
wonder then that in hot haste Greeley
mounted the tripod, and while the ink
was undried on some impractical Boria
boola (ila philanthrophy, its companion
drops were traced in denunciation of the
propositions of " the fiery letter of our
Montana correspondent." The Tribune
devotes a column to combating it, suffi
cient evidence that it found an opening
in the armor, pierced through the tough
hide of the eccentric statistician, and
touched not gently one of his favorite
hobbies. With a dishonesty strange in
Greeley, he premises falsely that the
letter of Col. McClure urges extermina
tion as the only solution of the vexed
question and builds tLe entire article
upon that. On the contrary it is men
tioned only as a dernier resort-the last
expedient for self-preservation. Strange
it is that Greeley is capable of such sub
terfuge to defend his inhuman policy.
In the name of the people of Montana,
without malice towards the aborigines,
but in defense of our rights as American
citizens, we endorse the policy pointed
out in the Montana letter, and claim it
to be the only true solution of the In
dian question, and its adoption is de
manded of the Government by its loyal
subjects. Greeley had better turn his at
tention to raising turnips than render
ing himself criminal by plotting des
truction and endless war betwen Indians
and whites, and giving evil direction to
Congress through the 7Obune'e influa
ence. The West yet lies in helpless in
fancy upon the breast of State. Let
those beware of its puissant manhood
who would dwarf its promising great
ness with the knife or tprch of savages.
