gpxToRPost : Well knowing as we
alldo that the quartz lodes arc the great^8upl^* ^^t our young ao^i growing Terri^^tory, and uj^on the development of which^j '^nds our prosperity and success in^giving at tl)e grand object that in^^duce** many or most of us to leave cur^comfortable homes and come to this far^off mountainous country, we, of course-,^are interested in every new gold discov-^rr of importance that is made within^our borders. Taking this as a hyj.ot.lie^;8 I desire to lay before your readers^5hort sketch (pen and ink) of a discov-^rr recently made on (ireen Thorn^creek, about sixteen miles from Helena.^In the early pait of last summer very^rich croppings of quartz were discovered^on the north side of Quartz Gulch, and^the parties finding them immediately^t work prospecting for the lode from^widen they had evidently floated, and^exhausted th ^ entire summer in fruitless^labor. They despaired finding the hid^^den treasure, and were on the point of^abandoning the place of their unprofita^^ble toil; hut having heard of the buc-^fjgts of Jack Thompson, the discoverer of^the famous Esmeralda, and many other^cb lodes, they decided to consult him^on the subject, and they did so. On the^Htu of November Mr. Thompson visited^the ground in person, and after examin^^ing it carefully, i^ointed out the place to^giuk a shaft. The parties taking new^a: once commenced the work^according to the instructions given them^iv ti.i-: practical and experienced miner,^^nj in le^*s than ten days found that^(access had crowned their industry and^that they were possessed of as rich a^lode as had ever been discovered in this^vicinity. The crevice is three feet and^a haM wide, and runs in a northwest^ind southeast direction, and the rock is^pronounced by all who have seen it to^be No. 1 in richness. It has been named^the *' Mexica.no.
Theluckv discoverers are vigoroualy^^fogeeating their work.and contemplate^erecting a mill on the ground at an early^dav in the spring.
Thisis further evidence that energy^and perseverance will find their reward^in this country that so richly abounds^in silver and gold. MINER.^Quarts Gulch, Dec. 15, 1867.

Texas, a distance of at least 5,000^milea^nearly twice that of the^Trans-Atlantic cable, connecting the^shores of Newfoundland and Ireland.^The messages were received and sent by^what is known as the ^sea board lines,^^^iaChicago, New York, Washington,^Knoivilh*. Tenn., and New Orleans, at^the rate of about 25 words per minute,^and the signals were remarkably dis^^tinct and strong.

Thefollowing mournful satire, accom^^panied by a cartoon representing Napo^^leon sadly contemplating the poor little^Prince Imperial, is in a late number of
Yes,the great end is attained. A^crown rests upon his brow^his hand^clasps a sceptre^by his side he wears^the sword of a conqueror. He has shaped^his course through a world of difficulties.^He has believed in his destiny, and now^has reached the summit of his ambition^^a throne.
Adizzy resting place, and yet while^new to it he is scarcely able to look^about him. He has climbed so high that^he can see naught but the sun of glory.^He must be something more than impe^^rial^he must be Great^great as a war^^rior, great as a statesman, great as a^Bonaparte. The purple robes must be^exchanged for the breast-plate, the crown^for the warrior's helmet. The world^must be taught that Napoleon's nephew^is no mean successor to his uncle's for^^tunes.
Deigningto use a dead man's coffin as
aladder to power, still he scorns to go^to his grave without renown. Moreover,^he has traitors to punish^foes to con^^quer. Were not the Russians and the^Austrians the sworn enemies to the first^great bearer of his name ^ Has he for^^gotten Moscow or Waterloo^ Does he^not know that by making the foes of Bo^^naparte the enemies of France, he secu res^for his family thousands of brothers^^millions of adherents^ It is a desperate
fame,perhaps, but it must be played,^f ho wins, he claims a palace, the devo^^tion of a prince ; if he loses, he falls to^rise no moN, or yields up that which is^dearer to him than life^celebrity. And^he plays, and for a while the cards seem^to favor him and he prospers. But at last^the luck turns against him. He finds his^plans unsuccessful and his people dissat^^isfied. And then he throws down his^cards, and looks for comfort to those^nearest and dearest to him.
Hewho has so often duped others now^actually and willingly deceives himself.^He tries to believe that he belongs to a^family of kings, that his power comes to^him from a long descent. That the bee^has ever been the crest of France; that^thejle'tr de ly^ has never waved from^the turrets of the Louvre. And he brings^together, to comfort him, the family he^wishes to love him. He feels so solitary^among princes^so lonely in the halls^that have belonged to those who scorn^him as an wfcurper. And he gathers his^family around him, the family he can^love, the family he can trust, and when^he tries to count their numbers, finds^confronting him naught save the tombs^of two^ead men and the face of a child^that is dying.
SiiermAJi'sFinancial Platform.^^^We of the North have to mourn the^loss of fathers.brothers, sons and friends,^and are burdened with a vast national^debt, binding on us. in fact, in law and^in honor; never, I hope.to be questioned^by any honorable man in America till^every cent is paid.^
