From Tuesday's Daily
DARING RnrL:ERY.-One of the most
daring robberies that has ever been perpetrated in
Montana. was comunitte'l in this city night before
last- Mr. S It. llerrnsk. proprietor of the Broad
way market, was the victim of the crime. At about
ten o'clock at night he retired to rest as usual in
his honee. next above his market. leaving his door
open. as ha1 been his custom during the heated
term. At 4 o cl,ck yesterday m:orning lie arose
iand was about to robe himself in the habiliments of
his s-x. when t. his amazement, he found pants,
boots. socks, hat. drawers and vest were missing.
A search about the premises revealed the fact that
some vilainous persons having neither the fear of
God nor the law betore their eyet . had entered the
room while its occupant slept, carried off the hat
and vest, and thrown the boots, socks, pants and
drawers into a vault in the back yard. It was sub
sequently ascertaiunel that they had taken i2-3 in
coin and dust w.l lch they found in one of the pock
ets of the pants. but had failed to notice $150 in
greenbacks which were oantainedx in the pistol
pocket, and concealed by a handkerchief. The
thieves might have lposessed themelves of seve
ral thousand dollars had they known it, and Mr.
lerrick thinks himself fortunate to have lost as
lit'le as he did. No clue as to who were the per
patratora of the robbbery nas been obtained.
VIRG;INIA ITEMS.--\Ve gather the
following from the LD)mocrat : The bone of a
large animal which, if perfect, would show a d.
ameter of two feet, was found on the bed rock,
twenty-two feet below the surface on Slater's Bar
ten days ago.by the Rev. Hugh Duncan. In con
nrction with this item the public are reminded that
the Territory has a Hlistori.al Society, and that
any curiosities deptlsited with it will be preserved
sad placed in a Museum. The Iloo. W. F. San
ders is the President of this Society, and the lion.
H. L. Ilosmer its Secretary.-.Fifteen yoke of
cattle were required to pull one wagon, just arrived
at Virginia, out of the mud on the Bentoe road.
near Sun River.-Grasshoppers have maie their
appearance in large numbers near Virginia, and
thraten the destruction of the crops.- A recent
run on the Kearsage Lode by the lostlewaite Mill
cleaned up #60 to the ton. By selecting the rock
more carefully it is thought that from 8100 to i123
to the ton may be obtained. Specimens have been
recently taken from this lead, in which the quartz
was literally tied togetber by thread of gold.
Rock is being taken from the Mesler, which it is
thought will pay 453 per ton. the contract for
crushing which has been awarded to the John How
Co.- The last sale of quartz on the Watseka lode
was at the rate of $15 pet f.Jt.- Rev. George
Comfort, who is to be the mece.see of the Rev. A.
M. Hough. arrived in Virginia on Thursday last.
He has for several years been the offciating cler
gyman at Binghampton, New YorkT-Thomas
Pierce was buried in a drift on Friday last at Vir
ginia. but not serionsly injured.- Farmers want
harvest hands in the Gallatin.
CAYUStES ON TIIH RAMI'As;E.-On Sat
urday a horse took a s.in down Wood St.. minus
ha rider, and was about to enter Fred White's sa
loon in an unceremonious manner. but suddenly
changing hi, mind., cleared the stairway at the
expense if a broken railing. and essayed to enter
Mather & Crucker's billiard saloon. Faillng in
this he bethought himself of his stable and went for
it in approved style. Snunday forenoon about ten
o'clock, a cayuse seeing the name "Kiyus," a rela
tive of his from Oregon. over the door of a saloon
in W.ool St., concluded to call upon him, renew his
acquaintance, aad, perhaps take a driat; but, no
sooner hat be entered than the very atmosphere of
the place seemed to hare such an eevating Cffect
upon his equine nerves, that he got upon a farful
"tear." After figurative!y raising ?±t satanic mai
eaty. after a fashion nearly akin to that of the bull
in the China hop,. he terminated hs perfamaunoe
by knocking down the store. rushing throegb the
bect romns and back door into the yard. where he
momentarily ^ecame "in deep meditation last.'
The .opportunity was seized upon for seizing the
animal and be eas ignominiously let bek to the

WHY.-The Herald is in hot water
because we did aot notce a Rlepeblieea mseetil ea

we am triald with the coustgy doe a fseibc

tion. It lods very musk as theah pan hand as
played to make that low point. and if we don't
make High, Jack, and the Gamei to yea rhen, there
is no virtue in a full hand of tramps.
CALLED.-We were omanRed y a'
with a call from Baron O'(eefe, he who lords it
over his easle in the Bitter Root Valley, and who
has been a resident of what is now Moatana du
ring the past ten years. He has seen the Territory
cbange rapkdly fra a svage wilderness to t}e
most prosperous section of America, sad rejolces It
its progress and bright prospects for the future.
Crops in the Bitter Root are reported to be in ex
cellent condition, as is also the Baron, and that he
may ever be so. is our wish.
•' Poor MAN's Joy."-This celebrated
lead a" Philipsburg is being energetically worked
by the Cole Saunders Mining Company. On ao
count of its situation this lead is very easily worked,
and seven men are now stripping the dirt from it
with surpassing rapidity. One hundred and fifty
linear feet of the ledge are now exposed to view.
Fully one thousandl tons of quartz .re now in sight,
besides four hundred tons on the dump pile. A
portion o: the ore from this ledge which is to be
shipped to Benton and New York, has already ar.
nived in Helena and is deposited in font of the

CABLE. -Wmin. Nowlan, VEq., auved

on Monday night. He gives us further particulars
concerning the recent great strike on the Cable.
The ledge was discovered at the new and immensely
rich point by running a drift, a distance of forty
feet into Cable Mountain from the bottom of a hun
dred foot shaft. At the place at which it is now
being worked the ledge has a widta of thirty feet
The Wm. Nowlan mill has recently been crushing
upon the new quartz. and cleaned up on Sunday
last a fine lot of amalgam, which has been manu
factured into a brick weighing 139. oz. 29 fine,
and worth '2,384.09 in coin. This brick may be
seen at Messrs. Nuwlan & Wearys' bank, and is
the resu!t of a five days run with ten stamps upon
the quartz referred to. Although unamorted,the
rock yielded over thirty dollars per ton, and it is
thought almost fabulous results may be obtained
by a careful selection of quartz for croihlng. The

DISTRICT c OURT.--.During Monday
and yesterday the District Court was engaged in
the hearing of motions and demurrers, and the
disj teal of a large quantity of untinished business.
It last night adjourned until Friday, when the
hearing otmetions, etc., will be resme. During
the present term one haundrd and twen'y- ve
eases have bees disposed f, a larger amount of
business than has ever before been done in this
Court. Every case upon which a trial has been
claimed has been tried, save one, and there is still
an opportunity for bri.giag that before the Court.
Such a vigorous prosecution of the legal war by
the court referred to is worthy of the highest com
mendation. The case of Wilson vs Fredricks, in
volving the title to a flooring mill to the Gal
latin. and the trial of which was announced for to
day has been postponed This case has been so
much turned and twisted, that it is involved in
almost inextricable confusion, the various papers
which play a part in it, being sa ficEiet to 'pack a
jury box" or any other capacious receptacle.
Judge Munson goes to Diamond on Monday where
he will hold court for about a week. Ie has
some important eases to dsse of there.
(RADIlNG OP BROADWAY.-The pro
priety of grading this magnificent thoroughfare of
Helena is now being much discussed, and seems to
receive favorable consideration. A survey of the
street has been made with eference to the pro
posed grade, by means of which it has been de
monstrated that the following changes in the pres
eat level of the mree will become macesary : At
the emarer of Jackson sreet, the app ide of
Broadway wmil be cut dowr 7 Inches; opposite the
Poet Oice, it will be cut down 2* feet ; opposite
Masonic Hall, 44 Ih, ; epposite Ewlag' cteble,
2* feet, opposite Dr. Bullard's 4 feet; corner of
Ewing street, 3* feet. From the last named point,
a short easy grade makes comeetie wth the natu
ral level of the street above. It is estimated that
.a600 cubic yards of earth will be removed to the
making of the contemplated improvement. The
lineal distance to be graded is 1,000 feet, and par
ties have offered to do the work for 1l,400, beinl
at the rate of seventy cents per front foot, to be pai
by the property o, each side of the street. The
coateact has not ben finally let as yet, and parties
wishing to nmake their bids upon it will flue their
proposals with Jas. W. Whitlatch, Esq., at his of

Let their comfort hide from view
Winters that deform it.
Hearts as fozen as your own
To that radiance gather:
You will soon forget to moan,.

If the world's a wildierness,
Go. build houses n it !
Will it help your loneliness
On the winds to din it ?

Weeds and brambles smother,
And to refSad meal invite
Some forloaer brother.
If the world's a vale of tears.
Smile till rainbows span it i
Breathe the loves that life endears.
Clear from clouds to fan it.
Of your gladness lend a gleam
Unto souls that shiver;
Show them how dark borrow's stream
Blends with Hope's bright river !

NUGGETS.-Mr. George Montgomery,
the proprietor of the Lightning Pony Express,
runaing berween here and Beatown,
informs us that two large nuggets were found in
BearGulch last week. The olaim upon whiph the
specimens were discovered was No. 2 or 3 abore the
Lower Discovery, and about one mile below the
tOn. One O the maggee Is the largest that has
been found in the country for a long tine, its
weight being five pounds. It is, however, sprin
kled with a considerable quantity of quartz The
other nugget was of perfeetly pare gold, sad was
worth 500. Bear Gulch is proving itself one of
the richest camps of the Territory.
PL.uPsBURno.-The mill of the St.
Louis and Montana Mining Company is still at
work upuo rock from the Hope Lode, although the
supply of ore taken out is nearly exhaustuL It
will therefore soon commence running upon cus
tom rook, and has. we understand, already made

Written for the Montana "Post."

Neptune and Flora, a difference of Express

Sixteen miles in the most direct practicable
course from the Sun RiverCroessing to Helena,
have brought me here to St. Peter's Mi:.ion.
It is located five miles south-east of the stage
road, and three south of "Bird 'ail Rock."
and is about sixty nulle;- from the metropolis.
I will explain in my next how I ma;ke the
Sun river cro-'ing only seventy-six miles
from the metropolis, instead of ninety, as
calculated by stage men.
The "Amphitheater Butte" is three miles
south-est of the Sul. river cro--ing, and
ranks, among the notable cozafigu:ations
around here, next to "Bird Tail. ' Tlough
both, alike, strike the brholder with their
resemblance to works of art. the ideas imi,ree
sd by each are entirely different. The for
mer with its fan-shaped outlines, it,; fluted
base, pillard front, and arched recesses, car
ries the mind into vioiun. of oriental splen
dor; while the latter, rising regularly from
the plain until it attains an altitude of from
one hundred and fifty to two hundred feet,
reminds one, with its regular edges of baredl
granite frowning down from every ,point of
its c:rcutLer-n(c, of a reCat i,.:lP o ,nghty
fortre'e. lit-ng up from a broad exipla:se of
table 1-mnds, no other prominent elevations
near, and its superficial extent on the top al
incsi as great as the arcr covered by its hale,
the "'Amphitheatre" ioois in view fcr miles
around, and, once .Pean, is a land-mark never
to be forgotten. It is apparently ,perfectly
level, and in reality nearly eo. Covered
with nutritiou4 grase it is a favorite stock
range. Bearing to the right of the "Am
phitheatr%" a gallop of five or zix miles
further, over land excellent for pas
turage, and well adapted to the growvth
of small grain--hut which, owing to the
vast extent of rich bottoim gr'bud still un
claimed, will long he uatnrrowed-brings
me to the "Co.d Spring Itancha." owned by
a big-hearted Irish-American named John
D. Brown, formerly of Providence, R. I.
Mr. Brown's is the only house of entertain
ment between the "Bilrd Tail" and Sun river ;
and a charming and delighted spot it is, too,
as many a weary traveler, and fatigued
freighter who has quaffed from the ice-cold
fountain at his door will agree. No denmur
riag or promises of "a.uother time" woutld
do-myself and friend must dlismount. Ilav
sag crossed his threshold, we were in the mneshes
of that true Celtce hospitality, whose silken
threads cannot be abruptly broken. His
ihterestiug persuoal remis.cences, and br,"ad
Irish humor, while presiding at the hastily
ra d bt iavi~ing boadnl-(smiale not, ye of
e mesroplaa salton. , for the rude cabin
of the frontier bath charms and comforts ye
woO not otf!)-wold have captivated old Zeno
himself, and subdued the most ascetic tem
. a convivial mood. As miner
hadter, i oeer ed farmer, Mr. Brown D
had is e of mountain viclssitude, b
is conident that he has "struck it at last
and I fully concur.
I wish you would have the foreman "pti
the compositor who made me say, in
forth araph of my frst leeter, the
ech blae, ea and bay" (bud) wa
"sparklin wit cryetal drop." While
positively aver that I have discovered, a
on the top of one of the highest motman
hereabout, where an oyster bed once eut
which I can substantiate on my return, by ex
hlbiting a dosen of the fosilised aulluslkt_
am equally sure that Neptune tIt lt,,;rr ,
serts authority in this region.
There ! again I am apprized that the Hlljp
bound coach will be at "Bird Tail" in -
hour, and I must quickly drop the pon, o
this will not be in time for Father Mltnntrr
