FROM " THE (iAItI)EN SOT.--VWe
last evening had the pleasure of meeting Mr.
Warren Allen, E-"q., just in from his home in
the Jefferson valley, near Gallatin City, of
which charming anl productive section he is
one of the first settlers. Progress is im
pressed on everything and everybody therea
bout. The farming portion of the commu
nity, satisfied, from practical expenence, that
Montana is an agricultural succem, and that
the "Three Forks " is second to no other
farming section of the country-that labor in
its development will speedily return a mani
fold remuneration-have been busily engaged
since the setting in of winter in making sub
stantial improvements and preparing for more
extensive operations next spring and sum
mer. Within the last three months long
lines of fences have been erected, enclosing
wild swards which will glow beneath the
next summer suns with virgin harvests; the
rickety, ineicient straw-thatched sheds are
giving way to warm and capacious stables
and barns ; old irrigating ditches have been
extended, and new ones dug; neat, and fre
quently elegant, cottages, are fast supplant
mag the rough, useown cabins of the irst and
second year's settlement; young orchards
are smiliag with thrifty promise; thoe great
moral agencies, the eebool and the church.
are not nelected :-in short, in all that can
sbstantally enrich, embellish and elevate,
the " Three Forks" is advancing. Among
important public improvements, the new
bridge of Judge Gallagher, being erected
across the Gallatin, at the present site of his
ferry, is deserving of special notice; the
Judge is prosecuting the enterprise with vig
or, but at the same time care and skill, and
when finished it will be creditable to the Terri
tory, and of incalculable beselt to the Galla
tin, Madison and Jersnon settlements. A
am and substantial bridge is also being con
structed acroes the Madison, three miles
above Gallatin City, which will meet an ur
gent necessity, and greatly facilitate local
bsies. A steamboat between the Great
Falls and the "Three Forks ! " we must

that fearful ealamity. It is now paying
losses at the rate of about oee and a half

always dealing liberall with its customes.

SUPRB.a-We were shown on Satur
day, by Mr. B. F. Hoopes, one of the thrifty,
stanach farmers of Boulder Valley, the finest
article of rye grain, grown on his reach, that
we have ever seen. The grains are one-half
larger than ordinary rye as plump, golden
tinted and transpareut as wheat, and makes
a very superior quality of four. It weighs
65 pounds to the bushel, 1. e., five pounds
more than wheat, and mine pounds more than
ordinary rye. But its extraordinary prolific
yield is the greatest weeder. About three
quarts of seed sown lpt spring yielded ux
ars-nse or eoxex. It is spring grain, and
grows on a very large, luxuriant stem. This
seed was procured in Utah last winter. We
Sare informed that in 1863 a few grains of seed
was taken from the craw of a migratory bird
shot in Oregon, and proved to be a variety
unknown to agricultaralists. It was sown
and produced prolifically. A great deal
of it is now grown on the Pacific Coast,
and from the description given of the growth
of this, persons who have seen this ,Oregon
grain grown, believe it the same veriety. Any
how, it is a most beautiful grain, and it as to
be regretted Mr. H. did not have his harvest
thrashed in time to put some of it on exhibi
tion at the Territorial Fair. He will have it
next year-if the grasshoppers absent them
selves from the large tract that will be sown.

coach of yesterday morning for the states. It
is Mr. Ming's intention to ship to Montana,
the coming spring, one of the largest s tocks
of literature, comprising Histry, Travels,
Biography, Metaphysical and Classical works,
the standard novels of the day, blank books
of all descriptions, and a splendid assortment of
I-ttionery, etc. The experience Mr. Ming
has acquired in this business enables him to
select goods with ipecial reference to the
wants of the country, and at the lowest posi
ble figures. No one can avoid rejoicing at
the eminent success which has crowned this
gentleman's labors-for hand in hand with
that advancing success has attended an ever
increasing popularity which grows up from a
generous spirit, warm heart, hospitable senti
ments, and a strictly honorable course of
busiueas transactions. We shall be pleased
welcnme Mr. Ming's return in the spring.
POLICE.-Judge Duke was engaged in
the examination of a charge of obtaining
money under false pretences, last Saturday,
brought against one J" E. Smith by Mr. Dro
lette. It appears that Mr. Smith mortgaged
a span of mules to the complainant. Said
mules were afterwards seized on an attach
ment aghnst the defendant in favor of an
other party. Mr. Drolette claimed the mules
by virtue of the mortgage. It turned out
tha: Mr. Smith was not the owner of the
males, but had hired them. .His defence is,
that he acted legally in giving the mortgage.
We did not hear the cause, but the Judge
did, and bound the defendant over to the
sum of $500 to appear at the March term of
the District Court.
VIRGINIA CITY ITEMx.-It snowed
yesterday, in Virginia City, the result of
which is splendid sleighing.... The How lode,
which was struck by the tunnel spoken of in
yesterday's issue, discloses rock which yielded
twenty-seves cents to the pound of rock.
This prospect consists mostly of silver....
Tom B. Wade, the ong "irrepressible" of the
Montana Democrat, who constituted the only
brain and nerve that kept that foslliferous
relic of a misspent life above the ground, is
going to Oakland. Cal.. to bring to Montana
his family..... Costing seems to be the rage
in Virginia City. Alas! Alas !
BUIUAL.-The funeral ot Mr. Thomp
son, who died Sunday morning, took place
yesterday, and the body was followed to the
grave by a large coneourse of mourning
friends who evidenced their appreciation of
the high character of the deceased while on
earth and their sorrow at his death.
PEasoNAL.-Col. t}o. L. Andrews,
Col. Rob't Nug.,t, and Col. P. L. Town, all

A probably fatal accident took place

named Donald Um . lS at was weieking
in a daift o uwhat i Labwm as the Butts claim,
a ile a half from town, when some of
the timmm gave way and he was barrted in
the cave which followed. Every assistace
was promptly readered by the miners of the
locality, but at our latest advices they had
still Aifteen fee to go to reach the unfortu

save his life. The frequency of this kind of

lIIITILAND.-Col. Woolfolk returned
yesterday fromn a visit to the quartz lodes of
Highland district, and kindly furnishes us
with much valuable Information in regard to
the development of that region of country.
Prof. swallow's mill is at present engaged in
crushing rock from the Ballarat lode, and
the indications are that the run will result in
a success and be entirely satisfactory to all
concerned. The run on the Nevens rock
showed a yield of about $60 to each tun of
rock crushed. Prof. Swallow is attending to
the process of amalgamation himself, and is
determined to use every means in his power
to ascertain the exact value of the ore which
he crushes. He offers to crush rock for any
parties in the district at bare cost of the ope
ration, in order that all may learn the real
value of their quarts. This is commendable
in the Prof. and shows him to be a man who
has the interests of the Territory at heart.

to record the death of Mise Mary Goldman,

was caused by cataleptic fits. Her death took
place at half peat four o'clock yesterday af

beamed with youthful intelligence, as she
performed some recitation at our last school
exhibition, and we predicted the future which
stretched out before her tende years, as
bright and beautiful. But alas! for human
hopes--she lies in the spotless robes that
deck her beauty for the grave. Hw life
has ceased, her future has no being, and she
has entered upon a new life into which sor

glimpses of the cold moon, this domestic
drama was emaceed which was robbed of the
melo-tragic touches by at grea love which
wells up like an ever lowing spiag within
the human heart. This couple have again
become one-reconciled, trusting and loving;
a good and honorable name is untarnished,
a hundred heats are untouhed with sorrow,
a host of friendships are unbroken. We turn
from this affair, which even in its fortunate
and happy results, thrills with a moral, po

close up the record of memory with an obli

H. L A. LEcTr-RSE.-T-he official an
nnouacement has been made public that a
course of lectures will be delivered for the
benefit of the Helena Library Association,
and the time has been made and the selections
of the speakers given. It is eumcient for the
present, to say, that we are satisfied with the
selections and are confident that the lecturers
selected are equal to the occasion and will do
full sad complete j:astice to their respective
subject=. The first lecture of the course, will
tbe delivered on Monday evening, Feb. lht, by
the Hon. Wm. 11. Claggett, than whom a
more eloquent speaker or one more capable of
delivering a lecture replete with valuable in
formation and thrilling interest, does not ex
int in the West. lie has selected for his
theme "Alkali "-its uses, its relation to the
needs and necessities of agriculture, and its
influence upon the resour. s of our country.
We are glad that Mr. Claggett instead of .e
lecting a subject calculated to call forth the
charm of poetical eloquence, and around
which he could gather in entwining lovel.cesa
all the tributes of sentiment, romance and
poesy, he has chosen one of a practical char
acter, which will contain information, intel
ligence, and sound ideas. It is a subject, as
our readers will at once notice while !isten
ing to it, that has a peculiar interest to us,
and the discussion of which may open up
considerations vast as they will be beneficial.
However, we leave that to the consideration
of a future time. The Course comprises six
lectures, which will be giveh in the new M.
E. Church. The price of single admission
is one dollar, currency. Tickets for the
course are fire dollars, currescy. This is an
occasion when the people of Helena should
respond generously and liberally, for while
they are advancing the prosperity of a great
and good institattoa. they are receiving a
beneft and pleasure from the lectures be
sides which the paltry pittance of admis
sion fades into insigniflcance.
A BILLA.rRD MATCH took place in Ray
Seld's Pool Rooms yesterday, between John
Featheratone and Geo. hayfield, and was wit
nessed by a large gathering of billiard ex
perts and amateurs in that fashionable game.
This match was highly interesting, and was
played in a nsnmer that exhibited many new
and beautiful features in the game, and gave
encouragement to the friends of the contest
ants that a severe course of practice for at
least thirty years would greatly increase the
strength of their play. The game was the
American four-ball game of fifty points,
played on a carom table. The time consumed
in the game was six hours and twenty-eight
minutes; the average run was one count per
eleven minutes. Mr. Peatberstone wes de
clared the champion, having counted out
while the umpire was asleep. We understand
the game will be played over again, as much
dssatisfaction is expressed with the result.
