ToroGRArnr.The sections embraced by the boundaries
Igiven may be said to be that of gently rolling^hills of moderate Deight, destitute of tim^^ber, but abounding in the most nutritious^grasses, every where well watered by gurgling^i streams and crystal springs. The vulliea ate^: all wide and smooth, now nnd then present-^ing evidences of wash, 8'id near the head of^^urnt C.eek,surrounded by mountain aud hill,^may be seen whit l^y the mountaineer is called^a Park, but we should call it a Grove, ouct the^f.ivoiita haunt of the wild and timid antelopu^and deer, a^ w^ll the bison and elk. Thss*^have been all ; i_: teueJ aw t\ by the bu*y^prospector and the constant clatter of the^will, to other and more retired haunt*, but^not more beautiful or seemingly peaceful. It^is only at the head of this P.-rk, you observe^on the long extended tpur from b^yood the^river, the first evidences of any great wash or^deposit of gravel, thai tvould indicate the^preseuce of plac^v gold. After the most tor^^turous course and struggling effort, the waters^of the distiict find a passage to the river^through the Hot Spring canyon. The denu^^dation seems to have been far less in the lower^than upper district, aud much of the district^not having b^en subject at any time to any^great wash or deposition of either boulder,^gravel, or sand, the out-crop of the quartz,^is more marked and the course and dip of^vein much more easily obtained than nearer^the base of the mountain range in the upper^district.
Thecountry rock everywhere seemed to^belong to one or the other varieties of gran^^ite, and the whole surface, especially on or^near the summit of either hill or ridge, dot^^ted with snow white quartz, while at the foot^of the hills and orer the plateaus, may be^seen the quartz in place, running in every^possible direction. With the hasty survey of^the district made by us during our visit, we^would term it a pleasing landscape, more so^than the bold and grand old hills and rocks^of nature s^en so oft in this our own Mon^^tana.
Ashort distance below the junction of^Buint Creek with Hot Spring Creek, is the^spring or rather springs from which the dis^^trict derive* its name, situated in low, marshy^ground. The volume of water is not very^great, but sufficiently bold and strong to af-^lord a beautiful, limped stream. The tem^^perature, as we were informed, is 124o faren-^heit, and a little barckish to the taste. The^medicinal properties, if any, we know not, as^no analysis has ever been made of the water,^nor diil we hear of any cures ^of the ills that^flesh is heir to.^ The spring rises in a depos^^it of tenacious blue clay. This clay is so^impregnated with lime that it has been found^by Mr. Isaacs in the erection of the mill and^buildings, to be a superior mortar, requiring^only to be tempered with sand and water.^That in the future, this marl deposit, will^prove not only a convenience, but of great^value, we have not a doubt.
Leavingthe spring you soon arrive, over a^most beautiful road, at the mill of Messrs.^McAudtews, Wann A Co., more generally^known as the Isaacs mill, (passing by two ar-^astras that had been the touch stone to fur^^ther outlay for machinery upon tried leads^hard by) you arrive af the mills, aud sur^^roundings of the above company. They are^pleasantly located near the head of the can^^yon, and seem adapted in every particular to^the several purposes for which they were in^^tended. The basement or first story of the^mill house is substantially built of stone, 42x^45 feet,and upon this rests the second story of^wood. In these walls we find 15 stamps, op^^erated by an engine of sixty horse power,^with tables, blankets, riffles, sluices, two ar-^atttras crusher and settler,all in good order and^save the gold as well as mills of this class;^indeed we hardly recognised an old acquain^^tance in the new dress and style, having to be
verarce,and Icil will have its reward. Little^did I suppose when on the 12th of July,^IStU, I passed by the place, along the well^worn trail of the Indian, I should in three^years return to find the spot now occupied by^a people of my own race, and that the labor^was so guided aud directed by intelligence^and science as to produce resnlts that bless^and benefit mankind, and in our ^ daydream^^we never thought that so soon would the^bright and genial influence of the domestic^circle of home, presided over by the cultiv it^ed, refined and Christian mother and wife, be^enjoyed where but yesterday was seen the^brutal savage, and filthy daughters of the^forests. ^ Verily ours is a life of change.
Aswe have stated, the mill was crushing^from the ore of the Red Bluff at the time of^our visit; since then, Mr. Isaacs informs us,^that from a run of eight and a half days with^10 stamps the clean up amounted to 23S^ounces of amalgam, and the estimated toas^or ore 75. The mill was as we have stated,^erected and started in forty-six days. Ibis^dispatch was owing chiefly to the constant^supervision and perseverance of Messrs. Isaacs^and Wann, as well as that of L. B. Olds,^millwright, Mr. Little, engineer, and the ever^busy Teats, amalgamator.
Thismill, general1/ known as the Athens^mill, is situated near the Gallatin road, two^and a half miles beyond Meadow Creek, at^what the people or proprietors have been^pleased to call the villi- ;e of Atkinville, and^is one of Ueudry's 12 stamp mills,^mill i- by the boundaries, we have determined^upon without the district we shall refrain^from giving a further description to such^time as we shall describe Meadow Creek dis^^trict, to which it properly belongs.
Inour effort to describe the lodes of the^district it is due to candor and truth to say^that our examination was hasty and superfi^cial, owing to the want ot time
ofin the far West. Its advertising col'^umns are a sure indication of life and^business, and its reading matter of the^^solid^ kind. The Post is an influen^^tial advocate for the principles of the^Republican party.
Mu.Edward Parsons, just returned^from Montana, tells the editor of the^Leavenworth Commercial a marvellous^story. Last July, himself and four com- I^panions, while exploring the head waters j^of the Yellowstone, came upon an Indian I^mound, surmounted by a huge stone.^Dislodging this stone and several others,^they found themselves in an Indian cat^^acomb, containing the skeletons of thirty^warriors. Lying beside the bones were^I numerous ornaments, among them many^! twisted circlets of gold. Some of these^were of unusual size, weighing one and^a half to two pounds. What chiefly at-^i tracted attention was a massive basin or^| kettle that occupied the center of the^apartment. This massive article proved^j to be pure gold, and was so heavy that^I the party had great difficulty in remov^^ing it from its resting place and bringing^\ it into the upper air. The adventurers^were enabled, by means of their axes, to^sever the mass into portable pieces, la^As this j dened with which the party turned their^steps homeward, having themselves to^walk the greater part of the way, to give^relief to their burdened animal. The^whole amount of gold was brought to^Helena, and Mr. Edward Parsons calcu^^lated that his share of the treasure^amounted to $21,000, the whole bulk^So tnat our j being at least $100,000 in value.^Pitts

In^the inside of the house the furniture is^painted and bronzed and gilded in the^most gorgeous Chinese style.

andGreat Western, with the Brick Poineroy,^and the Opula; the latter is an exceedingly^rich vein, of the general width and dip of the^lodes of the district, and has yielded from^three tons of ore, by crushing, at Isaacs' mill,^$309.uu of exceedingly fiue gold. Work is^being vigorously pushed on several of the^lodes and this wiuter will tell more than we^can uow write of the value of the district as^one of the mining districts of the County.
Thisdistrict certainly possesses many advan- j^ta^es lor successful mining. No part of it 1^is too rough for good roads. Deep and im^^passable snows are unknown. Water lor all^practical purposes, aud for steam power, is i^abundant and convenient. Provender is !^cheap, excellent and abundant. The only^drawb.ick is the scarcity of timber and fuei.^The district is, nnd nmit ever be, dependent^upon the mountains, six or eight miles away;^but this is in a measure overcome by the good^road.- aud abundant pasturage for stock, so^th.it wood is but little higher here titan it is^above at the upper mills. Another great ad- ,^vantage is the very short distance that the^ores have to be carted to the mill. With such I^advantage*, the enterprise and energy of her^people, the gieat number of lodej aud facili^^ties for working the same, we predict a bright^future for the di-wict, und that the efforts of^hrr sterling and worthy people inu-t aud ^ill^be crowned with succ-'---
