Six Buildings Destroyed.
Loss, Seventy-five Thou
We regret that we are called upoe to re,
cord the devastation of the greatest Are that
has ever visited Montana. Since the settle
ment of the Territory, and the history of our
citis first began to be woven, we have been
exceedingly, even providentially fortanate in
regard to fires ; but our citisens, laled to a
sense of security by ouaheretofore exemption
from the horrors of a conflagration, yester
day received an awakening which was rude
a lesson which was bitter and an experience
which was costly. About the hoar of 34
o'clock in the afternoon, as the citmensm
were recovering from the little excitement
consequent upon the fire at E. Franks, a col
umn of smoke of no great extemt was seen is
suing from the rear part of the roof of Moli
tor t Co's. Assy oace. Quite a number of
citisens noticed it, but knowing the fact that
a furnace for reducing sad assayig prposes
was located there, felt no unessime. Some
few moments passed and the characte, of the
smoke left no doubt but that the bildl(ng
was on fire and the r larm was given. In
stantly the citises Lathered aend the vigor
ous, emergetic and disinterested efforts com
meaced for the suppression of the fire, which
continacd with unabated ardor until all den
ger was over and the fire extinguished. We
are informed that the fire originated from a
detective ine in Mr. Molitor's building. It
seemed for a few moments that the fire could
be restricted to the building in which it orig
inated, but before those on the roof could
t the books attached, the fire burst out
am one mss of fames and drove the most dsr
iag ireman and enduring salamander to the
a s inag roofs. It now became apparent to
sae prnsums az wat away L a arw, new aW
the brt time fears began to aseme form and
terrible proportions, that the buusiem part of
the city was in etreme danger. Merchka
the entire length of the street removed their
goos either into their Areproe~s, esorehouses,
or out into the strets. Bockets, ti-pal
and all utemuib capable of cerryig water
were brought forward ; lanes were formed of
the citisen sad one or more streams of water
were constantly fed to the lames. The ut
most eforts and severest exertions could st
prvail, and the Lames spred. Am
were made to tet doow the store occuie
St 6ry Co., oet the lames, urged by a
Sbrese which now sprung up, swept
beck all who strove to cat away the btrm
work ad covered the adjoining roofs wth
bWaing cinders. The stocks in the tres of

calamity to be visited upon oear yong and

made contanents bloom by eerjgy and per
severesoe, and in battle threw seir plumes
far into the ranks of the enemy, and followed
to recover, and that indomitable enargy ad
buoyancy under disaster will sustain them in
this trial, and bring out of this le ano abs
dast gain. The dramatic aspect of the ascese
was thrilling, the strects £lled with a ezited
multitusle, teams loading sad hurrying to
and fro with mercbandis of all klads, the
hills tops covered with Helesa's fair
ones, viewing with trembling anad
aching bearts the destruction of their people's pro
perty, ad, above all, the volume of angry and
maqeshable fames that lapped their lag Sery
tongues about the wealth and prosperity of er
city, combined to form a sese thrilling. gloomy.
and devoid of beaaty. e trust
that fur the last time ia many years
we shall tell of a &re. We hope the sad, the strm
lesse., so forcibly taught, will not be .sheeded,
that the tale will not be a twice told ome but that
we shall have, and that speedily, gaester prote
tics and mure complete safety against the devasta
Stion of this our common enemy.
CRaaRG1 OF ROUxI. -Mr. Wm. Taylor.
Superinteadent of Wells, Fargo A Co's. North
er line, leaves this morning for the South,
and will, on the trip, make changes in the
i- the route of material beedt to Helena,
saving sixty miles between this point and
alt Lake City, and giving us our easter.
il two days earlier. The mail coming north
to Helens at present delects from Point of
odcks to Virinia, and comiag back over the
same route to Daily', and thence along one
side of a triangle to Jefferson Bridge. After
to-morrow the road will be establied direct
from Jereaso Bridge, pass DHery Morrier's,
on the Pamamari, to Point of Rocks. A daily
two horse stage will now run between Vir
inia and Henry Morers, the Concord coaches
running direct between Helena and 8Belt Lke.
r. Talor has also made the requisite ar
rangements to have the Helens mail put in
through sacks at Salt lake City, saving its
transit and redistribution at Virginia, as well
as the diversion of travel over that route.
This is an excellent and much seeded change.
Whbe the cars reach Ogden, the odce of
Well, Fargo A Co. will be established at that
point, saving 120 miles over the present route,
and Mr. Taylor believes he can make the tim.
between Helena and Ogden in 60 hours. We
are satised if any line on theContinent can to
it, Mr. Taylor's will, and accord him well
earned and well deserved credst for his mc
ceusfl fforts to establish regnlar and speedy
communication between this place and the
City of the Saints.
DIr'tTr D.-By this morning's coacb,
departed for the States, Jacob Smith; Esq.,
President of the Montana Hile and Fur Co.,
eet of the instittions of Montana. We an
derstand that Mr. Smith goes East in the in
terest of the company with which he is con
nectsd and which under his able and enarget
management has grown from a feeble espe
imeat into a great enterprise. We commend
Jake to the Ortentals as a rstler, fall of his,
via and wit, and ooe whom we shall mms
from our midst. Be good to yourself Jake.
Qgamr PaoePrcrvz.-The recent rich de
velepsst dof the Oeans Wave lede, ia the
vicnity of Tacker's gulch--said to be from
three to four feet of ore, with an abundance
of "free gold" visable-has stimulated quart

some of the praspects that they have te
the great Unlon veis, by way of the r
Moamtesi, Onmyba, I Bl m -ssm
Ocean Wave, to the Barker led, on W
creek. Having seen rock from all these
we think it is strikngly similar. Should the
omnJesare of cootiuoemsse prove crrect,
she time is not distant when a line of mills

Tea Mile to Illiois gulch, wll pour forth

SUPPOAKDTICECN-DI ARIsxm.-About the

Oered in the roof of the entramcay which

to load up the debris,the goods were re removed.
old eores were put in order, the sound of the

ACo., and Mann A Davidson.ench had forces of
men putting an glase and clearing buldings,
sad last evmang the stocks were again neatly
arranged on the shelves, and a coat of paint
to-da will repair, to a great extent, the rec
ord of the ire. Mather A Crocker bad plas
terers, painters and plumbers at work, and
early last night their billiard tables, which
had lined the street, were in their places.
The boys of the Gasette, with that nerve aad
energy equal to asy occasion which charac
tenses, to a great detree, devotees of the
"art preservative," pled with dioculty,
and have to-day brought neatness and order
out of chaos. Their types are gathered,
their press is bean pet as a " war footing,"
and a day or so wll e them " ready for ac
tion." So, up and down the street, the
work of renovation went on. No symptoms
of derpondency, no evidenoes of wpakpes,
o a of serve, bt a cheerful acceptance
eo tsheeituation" and a desire to do the very
best under the circumstances, seemed to acta
ate each and every one to exertion sad labor.

By Saturday few evidsees to git out the
occurrease of a re will eam, eucept the
blac yawning gap of desolated foundations
pon whieh a day or two ago stood and
iaoved the busy tread of besiness. This gap I
iw trust will be filled up with a good, sub
stantial stone building, which will be a credit
to the owner and an honor to the city.

FRoM (alc.Aoo.--V were pleased to
meet last evening an old Chicgonisa, bet at
preset a citisen of Montana, Mr. Corhin,
who has just returned from that city. Mr.
Corbin informs us that he has had construct
ed at the Eagle Works a twenty stamp quartz
mill, fully supplied with all the necessary
improvements, which will be put upon the
levee at Sioux City by the first of April, and
shipped on the first boats of the N. W. T.
Co. Mr. Corbin also informs us that Mon
tana stands high among the heavy men of
Chicago, a large number of whom are com
lig out in the spring to take a look through
our Territory. Mr, Clark, who spent the last
summer in the Territory as the representative
of the Eagle Works of Chicago, will soon be
here as a permanent eitizen. Judge Chuma
sero has purchased his entire outfit of furni
ture, and will be up on the first boat with
his family. A large number of other facts
of a highly interesting nature we learned
from this geuoleman, which our time pre
vents us repeting. We are surprised to learn
of the wonderful progress which Chicago it
making in building, business and wealth.
VIR(;INIA ( "ITY ITEMI.--From the
Democrat we learn that the citizens of Vir
ginia City are becoming much interested in
regard to the construction of a road from
that city to Salt Lake. This proposed road
is to peas by te head of Madison river and it
is contemplated that it will save at least 7i
miles between the two places. If this be
the fact, such a road would be a great ad
vantage to the citisece of our sister town....
Iien'l Thoroughman is fast recovering his
health. This intelligence is very gratifying
to the General's many warm friends at this
place.... Morris' Creek, situated a few miles
from Rochester, in Deer Lodge Co., is being
rapidly developed. The lodes of the district
are silver producing and are said to be ver
rich. It is said that a large number of the
owners of lodes are at work pe their prop
erty with the greatest hopes of seccew.
EDIuTORS POiT: I am not much giv
en to c&hrouicling events iu our Territory, but
bhaving spent som time in examining the
mines in this vicinity, my interest has been
more than usually excited, and more particu
larly with the succes attendng the efforts of
Capt. Parkinson. I venture the assertion
that there are no men in Helena who have
evidenced greter industry and perseverance
in prospecting and developing their mines
than )Mers. Parkinson A Argyle, an this
in a very quiet way. They have nod the
best prospect of big succees of any men in
the Trritory, and it occurs at a fortunate
period, us a number of mill. in this vicinity
are idle for want of quarts, thus enabling
them to get their rock crushed as cheap, if
not cheaper, than with a mill of their own.
The fact that we have ever sixty quarts mills
in our Territory, with not over forteem run
ning, has argued injuriously to Menatm,
and denrly shows that what we want is me
ney, nd not macidery, to deveiope our
mines. If eapitlsts Bat wre well poeted,
they would look with suspicion upon any
tan that would plead the want of machinery
to deve his mine, while there are mills
fe* saee at ome-half their actual cost,
and .e shdg k4being done for less than $8
per tom in curraecy. What we want is mo
ney and well directed labor; give us these,
sad in feo years Muet.am will be second to
no State or Terratory na the production of
the precious metal..

who has jst returued frwm this locality, .o
forms s that bhe is at work runnimn a drift
into the White Cloud lode, sixteen miles from
Ft. Owen, sad taking from it a specie of de

has stimulated an eager search after others,
which will undoubtedly be found.
