THE MONTANA POST, FRIDAY, MARCH 5.
'Siun;le Weddings^ occur on tu^^Urst anniversary ot the wedding day.^The latent edict of custom is to ob^s^-rv^-^them only when the marriages have^ween happy. That in a death blow at^the shingle trade^a radical uhurpation.^and decidedly unconstitutional.
Thefollowing despatch from Mr^l.indsley will be read with interest by^all who are awaiting the arrival of^'tiuth by mail^ from the States. Thir-^ty-seven days more! Truly, it it* a de~^tightful prospect:
SaltLake. Utah.)^March 2d. ISO!). )
EditorPost:^I am officially inform*,^ed that no mails are expected here from^the East for thirty days. The road is^hopelessly snow^blocktd. I shall return^to Helena by next coach.
TheHouse Republican caucus l as^selected James ti. Blaine as Speaker to^succeed Colfax, whose farewell to the^House, a speech of masterlv elepince,^we publish in this issue. Evidently^well pleased with one country editor^they have chosen another, and we hope,^for the benefit of the profession in the^rural districts, lie will so deport him -^^^It that the precedent will establish a^rule. Mr Maine was lorn in Wash-^ington county, Pa.. Jan. 30, 1S3U ; grad^^uated at Washington College; went to^Maine; edited the Portland Adrirtistr^;^nd the Kennebec Journal; was in the^Legislature four years, and has been^sent from the Third District (Kenne^^bec, Lincoln, Somerset and half of^Knox counties) to the :jsth. :tt)th. 40th^and 41st Congress. He had a major*^ity at the late election, over E. Wilder^Farley, (deui.) ot 3,340 votes in a poll^ot 2'.),008. He is regarded as an able^man. and is one of the few carpet bag^^gers from west of the Allegbanies who^has achieved political distinction in the^New England States, and especially^away down in Maine.
THESTATE OP DESEKET.
Perhaps,to some our readers, the^State ot Deseret and Ctah Territory,^within tbe same boundaries at the^same time may be as incomprehensible^a riddle as it once was to us. The solu^^tion is : The Territory is a practical^fact: the State, a good natured farce.^The Territorial laws are enacted by the^legislature and approved by the Terri^^torial Governor^Durkee, pretty much^as in other Territories, rave that the^legislation is generally more promotive^of the material interests of the Terri^^tory, which ia sedulously kept out of^debt- Then, after tbe disolution ot the^Territorial, the members resolve them^^selves into a State Legislature, of which^Brigham Young is the nominal Gov^^ernor. He is notified when an organi^^zation has been perfected, and sends in^his Gubernatorial message. After thia^is read the two Houses pass a joint res^^olution ot the State of Deseret, making^the Territorial laws of Utah valid in^the State, which is approved by Brig-^ham Y'oung. and tbe Legislature then^dissolves This little pleasantry gene^^rally occupies one day, or a part thereof,^and the members then return to the^)^o*oraa ot their fami lies es.

TnBNew Cable.^The core ot the^French Atlantic cable which is to be^laid in June next, consists ot seven cop^^per wires, the center one of which is^coated with a film of adhesive matter^known as ^Chatterton's compound.^ It^is made in lengths of one mile, and^wound on iron reels, whence it passes^through a die to determine the size^^plastic gutta percha being at the same^time forced down upon it by screw pres^^sure. Four successive coatings are put^on in this mauner: and between every^two the conductor receives a coat of the^abeve named adhesive compound. It^then undergoes immersion for twenty-^tour hours in water of 7^^ deg. Fah . at^the expiration ot which it is subjected^to the most delicate test that electri^^cians can devise. The coils, after being^tested and passed, are joined two too^gether. ai^d wound on drums, to be con^^veyed to the -heathing works, all joints^between the coils having also i^een put^under a rigid electrical test. Jute yarn^is then wound round the core, atter^which ten wires ot homogeneous iron,^each ot which is covered with Manila^yarn, steeped in tar, are aided, and the^cable is complete The total weight of^the core is SOU pounds per nautical mile,^the copper being 400 and the gutta per*^cha 400. '1 he total length ot cable for^th^ -ection from Brest to St. Pierre is^2.788 nautica'. miles. The second sec^^tion , from Sr. Pierre to New York, will^be a smaller wire, consisting of a cons^due'or of 107 pounds per nautical mile,^and the insulator 150 pounds, the^length being 776 nautical miles.
Statisth ok Floir. Saw, Shingle,^Qt'artz and Woolkn Mills.^There^are now in California, as shown by the^reports of the County Assesors. 62 steam^irrist ini!ls, with 205 run ot atone, and^Wl water mills with 116 run of stone,^all of which turned out 1,400.413 barrels^of flour, and ground 166 770 bushels of^corn during the year.
Sawmill: 507 steam power, and 161^water-power, which produced 220AW 1,-^213 feet of lumber; 108,007,000 shingles^were also made
Thereare 360 quart/, mills, which^crushed 291.480 tons of rock. Water^ditches, for mining purposes, with an^aggregate length of 11.349^ miles, and^using 711,730 inches ot water per day.^Water di'ches. lor irrigating purposes,^720. irrigating 70,588 acres of land
Woolenmills, six: which used up^m.125.000 pounds ot wool^about half^the product ot the State. Two or throe^more woolen mills have been completed^since the assessor's reports were made.
TnEWonders of Modern Chbmid*^try.^About one hundred tons of guano^from Sombrera, in the Weat Indies, was^reshipped at Southampton, last month,^tor Birmingham, to assist in the manu^^facture ot lucifer matches. Mixed with^sulphuric acid, this guano is converted^into an excellent manure. If. instead^of being made into manure, the phos^^phoric acid is extracted from it, the ex^^tract is made to form the igniting prop^^erty of lucifer matches. Thus the same^material that raises the food ot man and^beast lights the cigar. It builda up the^hay-rick and wheat-stack, and helps to^form the instrument with which the in^cendiary burns them down. Wealthy^farmers, and street Arabs, who sell halts^penny boxes of lucifer matches, are^often dependant on the excretions of^sea birds who frequent a deser^. rock in^the West Indies.
Thelatest patriotic invention in the^South is a game ot cards called Ku-^Klux Euchre. It is played as follows:^The fire face cards of each suit are se^^lected, which, together with the blank^sample card, constitutes the euchre^deck. The blank aample card is denom^^inated KusKlux, is always trumps, and^of greater value than all other trumps.^This Ku-Klux must be dealt out an ev^^ery hand. If accidentally it should be^the ^turn up,^ the deal must be made^again, and until trumps of one ot the^^nits are turned. Four persons are re^^quired to play the game. This Ku-^Klux Euchre is becoming very popular^in Augusta. Us.
