Rbeignation.We were informed by^R. T. Gillespie, Esq., the efficient End popu^^lar agent of Wells, Fargo 4 Co. in this city,^that yesterday evening be received the fol^^lowing dispatch from Wm. H. Taylor, Esq.,^Superintendent of the Northern Division of^Wells, Fargo A Co.
Ihave resigned my position on the North-^em Division of Wells, Fargo ft, Co. and have^accepted the Superintendence of Wines A^Co'*. Stage Line in Nevada.
Incommon with oar entire community,^we receive the knowledge of Mr. Taylor's^resignation with regret. Bringing to this^company an experience ripe with a life long^^errice in the greatest staging enterprise of^the country, he came up the road from Salt^Lake to this point in Dec. 1366, as Superinten^^dent of this section of the road. Since that day^be has devoted himself entirely to the im^^provement and perfection of his road. lie^has labored day and night, tested and pat^into ase all known improvements, shortened^routes, introduced every possible convenience,^and in short, left no means untried that^could in any manner conduce to the greatest^speed, safety and ease on the route. That he^has succeeded in bringing the road to a de^^gree of perfection almoet unattainable, no^one who baa ever traveled from here to Salt^Lake will for a moment doubt. And as the^result of his efforts, aided by his efficient *e-^sistents, he tarns over to his successor the^finest, the best and the most efficient stage^line on this continent, and superior even^to the old post routes of England. He^retires from this position with the^high regard and warm friendship of^the people of Montana, not only^in oar city bat throughout the entire rente,^who have ever found him accommodating,^social End courteous. The Use to which he,^will devote bis time and attention is the^great stage company of Nevada^of which^he is e partner^which includes among its^rentes the one from Austin to White Pine^and from Echoe to White Pine. The largely^increasing business of this company demand^his services. While we say good bye, we^trust it is only for a season, and in behalf of^the citizens of this metropolis of Montana^each one of whom is your friend, we ex.^tend to you the best wishes for your future^'access and prosperity, and add our humble^tribute of continued good will, regard and^fmndship.
OnkMore Fire Attempted to startle^oar citizens yesterday morning.. A small^building in the rear of McClare A Co.'s^blacksmith shop, on Broad street, was dis^^covered on fire, bat the names were extin^^guished before they gained any considerable^headway. It seems strange that since the^great fire so many alarms of fire have been^given and so much carelessness has been man^^ifested by those who should be careful. If^those who are thus reckless in regard to the^safety of their own property were the only^losers in consequence of fires resulting from^their individual neglect, we would cheerfully^consent to their being burned oat from roof^to foundation, bat when, by their want of^care, they are constantly jeopardising the^property of the enure city, we are in favor^of guardians for each individuals. Take the^history of the great fires throughout the^country and their origin is invariably traced^to some little wood building, the value of^which is a few hundred dollars, and the occu^^pant of which owns a trunk and an overcoat.^Whole cities have been laid in ashes from a^^imple act of carelessness on the part of some^individual whose very abject poverty was to^him an excuse for being heedless. Such peo^^ple should take heed that they are not the^sufferers, bat those who have labored earnestly^for years to acquire financial independence.^Many have the entire results of their life^^time of toil and privation swept away for^^ever, and thereby left broken in spirit as in^f ortane, to begin anew iuVs battle.
HelenaLibrary Association Lrc-^tubs^The fifth Lea tare before this Society^will be delivered on Thursday evening next^at the M. B. Church, at 7J o'clock by Cor^^nelias 11 edges, Esq., who has selected for his^-urged the highly interesting theme, ^Pop-^alar Education.^ Few citisens of Montana^have given the subject of education more^thought than Judge Hedges, and he will on^this occasion express the hue of his opinions,^the strength of hi* convictions, and the re-^salt of his investigations. We doubt not^bat that the lecture will be highly enter^^taining and instructive. We are assured^that there will be a large attendance.
ThrMorris Conflict.^John Mor^^ns and Joseph Morris disagreed upon some^question yesterday. From words the time^to blows was short. Joseph received several^indentations upon his venerable shall. The^only fears entertained on the part of the^bystanders wa^ that they would not kill each^other. They disappointed all their friends by^coming out of the battle alive aad running^to the Justice Court, and receiving the^reward of bis very in a fine of about twenty-^five dollars and costs each. We are confi^^dently expecting to sea so use one killed in^these street fights, and we can't say we would^spend any time mi vigorous lamentation.
Whereas,it appears from a card published^is the Poet of the 1st of March, and signed^by M. A. Lindsley, late of the firm of M. A.^Lindsley A Co., Helena, and a member of the^^Lindsley Mining Company,^ of Ten Mile^Creek,^ bad left the Territory for the States,^and by so doing bad placed u^, the under^^signed, in a false position towards the public^of Helena ; therefore we take this means to^inform said public the true position of affairs^so that they may exonerate as for any delin^^quencies of the said M. A. Lindsley. The^said M. A. Lindsley received from Messrs.^Hall A Miller, Brown, Hunt and others the^sum of $709, also the sum of $274 as assess^^ments and recorder's fees, all of which money^it was understood should be applied towards^liquidating all debts contracted by the com^^pany, ihe indebtedness of the company is^about $650, and it appears by investigation^that no portion of the money collected or^received by M. A. Lindsley has been applied^toward paying any of the Company's debts,^excepting some $85 ; and it is hereby declared^that the said M. A. Lindsley has nothing^further to do with this company, and we, a#^representatives of the company, assure the^public that the work on Ten Mile Creek is^being vigorously carried on, snd with every^prospect of good success, snd that sny debts^of the company will we are satisfied be fully^satisfied before the expiration of the month.^FRANK W. A. CUNNINGHAM,
Superintendent.JOHN A. NELSON.
LindsleyMini no Company.^In a^conversation with Col. Nelson, who has the^management of the working of this Company,^we learned that the work of sinking on the^shaft was being vigorously prosecuted. It^appears that in the sinking of the shaft a^fresh vein of wster was struck, which poured^in upon the workmen in an earnest manner.^To remove this water and to keep the shaft^dry, two large Chinese pumps have been in^^troduced, which affords a pumping capacity^of about one hundred inches of water, mi^^ner's measure. By means of these the Col.^apprehends no difficulty in keeping the shaft^free from water for the present. He is now^engaged in digging to the bed-rock. It is^the intention of this Company, notwith^^standing the unfortunate circumstances^which bave hindered and surrounded it (as^explained In a card, elsewhere,) to continue^the prospecting upon this shaft until the bed^^rock is reached. We understand that many^of the public spirted merchants of this city^have extended to this Company many favors,^and have made it possible for the desired ob^^ject to be attained in a short time.
ACARD TO THE PI BLK .
Havingbeen informed by telegraph to this^point that since my absence f*om Helena, a^dissolution of co partnership of the house of^which 1 am a member,there has been publish^^ed. 1 take this method of informing the^public that having learned a few days since of^the suspension of the house at St. Louis, of^which I am a member, I am en route to St.^Loais to assist in repairing its fortunes, a^matter to which I contributed more during^the last nine years than any one else con^^nected with it, a fact well known at St.^Louis. I did not please to inform sny one^of the cause of my departure from Helena,^and having learned that my absence has been^attributed to other causes, I make this state^^ment in justice to myself and others with^whom my name has been associated.
Ruddy'sSution, Feb. 28.
ThirdMeeting of the Fire Com-
mitteb.The Committee met at the Court^House 10 a. m. yesterday,and was called to^order by the President.
Onmotion, the reading of the minutes of^the previous meeting was dispensed with.
Thereport of the assessment made by the^Fire Commissioners was presented by Mr. C.^B. Stephenson, from which report it appears^that the Commissioners have assessed the im^^proved property on Main street, from Watson^Br up, at fifty cents per front foot and^twenty^five cents per front foot below^the place named. Bridge street is assessed at^fifty cents per front foot from Clore street to^Walcott A Hunch's (opposite Water street,)^and from there on up twenty-five cents per^front foot; and they recommend that on^Wood street, from Main to Joliet, the pro^^perty be assessed at fifty cents per foot front^^age, and that collections be made in ^China^^town^ on the same basis.
Thereport of the Commissioners was re^^ceived snd adopted, it being generally under^^stood that the said assessment is made only to^meet immediate wants in the organisation of^a fire company.
Onmotion, the collectors were authorised^to employ a sab-collector to collect on Wood^street and in ^Chinatown,^ who is to be^paid oat of the fund collected.
Itwas resolved thst one hundred can vast^buckets be obtained, (as specified by resolu^tion) the same to cost $3.50 each in currency.
Itwas moved and adopted, that in the pub^^lication of the proceedings of this meeting,^the property holders be requested to meet at^the Court House at 7J o'clock p. m., to-day^3d inst,, to ratify or reject the assess^^ment made.
TheCommittee then adjourned to meet at^lO.e'clock, a. m. March 4th, I860.
J.S. Lyon. President.^Secretary.
Returned.General Neil Howie re^^turned last night from Ft. Benton and vicini^^ty, to which part he has been on business, snd^states that everything is quiet below. Ihe^river is open at Benton. A party of Indians^crossed the river a few days ago on their way^to the Piegan camp with about thirty head of^horses, they reported them taken from the^crows. Mr. C. A. Broadwater arrived last^night at Sun river from Camp Cook. Major^Clinton and party will arrive at Camp Cook^to-morrow. It is stated that there has been^over fifty of the Bloods, Peigan and North^Crows killed during thr past winter, in battles^among themselves. This is inueed pleasant^information. The General says the coun^^try is barren of snow except in the moan-^tains.
Departed.By this morning's conch,^John Featherstan, Esq., Deputy U. S. Mar^^shal, took his departure for White Pine. It^was in the autumn of 1803 that Mr. Feather-^stun came to Montana, and from that day to^the present one he has ever stood first among^her citisens. sDnring the dark days of Mon^^tana's history he proved himself a brave and^true man, and in all the relations of life,^whether official or socisl, he has sustained a^character above reproach, and a reputation^destitute of suspicion. He has held many^positions of public honor and trust, and he^has in each and every one proved himseli^competent, worthy snd fully equal to the^occasion. We part with John, wishing him^God speed to the silver regions, and an abun^^dant prosperity when in them, and every cit^^izen of our beautiful city will say amen.
TheSnow.^It is unnecessary to state^that a universal expression of joy and thank^^fulness pervaded oar community when the^snow storm began to come down. Its a reg^^ular good old fashioned affair. No J base of^the weather could have been so welcome.^The universal complaint has been uttered that^there was ao snow. The fset was realised,^that to bave prosperity next summer we must^have snow. Now the snow has come. We^are not informed of the extent of the storm,^but expect that it is not oi a local nature.^It will he of incalculable benefit to the Ter^^ritory, and appreciated by all who bave goods^to sell snd mines to work. May this be but^the beginning of a large yield wf snow.
GallatinValley.^From John Pot-^^ter, Esq., who has just returned from an ex^tended trip through this valley, we learn '^many interesting facts as illustrating the^great prosperity and entertise of the citisens^of that favored section of Montana. In the^upper part of the valley there is not a parti^^cle of snow. The ground is dry, free from^froet, and mellow as in rummer. The prai^^ries, brown-bued with grasses rich with the^concentrated nutriment of summer'r juices,^is covered with noble herds of cattle, while '^in the fields is seen the plow and the harrow !^putting in the next year's crops of wheat.^Fat the last three weeks the farmers of that^vicinity have been plowing and putting in^grain. Think of this, ye who in Eastern j^homes regard Montana as a dreary waste, over^which bangs the gloom and desolation of a I^long and rigid winter. The farmers through-1^out the entire length of the valley are busily^engaged in fencing, putting improvements on I^their farms, and in every manner suggested^by the judgment of an experienced farmer, ;^preparing for their summer crops snd the^coming harvests. Bcxeman City is quite^brisk and a heavy spring business is antici^^pated. The Gallatin river is still gorged and^and results in great inconvenience to the peo^^ple of Gallatin City and the Three Forks by^the overflowing of the coon try. It is ex-;^pet ted that it wiU not continue long. It is I^the intention of the citisens of Gallatin Vsl-1^ley to erect a series of bridges across the Jef-1^ferson, Madison snd Gallatin rivers, which^shall be forever free to all travel. Subecrip^tion papers are now in course of circulation j^in the valley, and it is intended that these j^bridges shall be substantial and durable j^structures. By this means the route from j^this point to Boseman will be shortened quite^a number of miles. This is a move in the^right direction, and is a credit to the citisens^of that locality and offers an example to j^sections of the Terrritory who are forever^pleading in vain for appropriations of the I^Legislature to build desired bridges. We^are glad to record theee evidences of the^prosperity of this portion of our Territory,^fittingly called the ^Garden of Montana,^^for tbe people of Gallatin Valley have ever^been among the best and most worthy citisens^of our err I to rv.
Firs at Helbna.^In our notice of the I^recent fire at Helena we stated that it was the^work of an incendiary. We gave the infor^^mation as received from the Post, and ere;^gratified te be corrected by tbe Gazette, from^which we learn the fire was purely acciden^^tal.^^[Democrat, Feb. 27.
Theindividual who wrote tbe above item^is either a liar or an idiot, we don't care^which, but either distinction would be die-^graced by his adoption. The Editor or wri^^ter who would deliberately misrepresent pub- 1^lie newspaper statements for lae purpose of :^gratifying malignant personal spite, is too^coot amp table a creature to receive even in^^sults. We stated in our notice of the late^destructive fire, ^that we were informed that^it resulted from a defective flue in Mr. Moo^^ter's building,^ and nowhere in tbe article i^did we speak of incendiarism. We don't^want to see any more of this misrepresenta^^tion, or we will make it a little Lot for some^people.
Fromthe Daily of Thursday.
AMiner Killed at Unionvillb. '^^On Tuesday evening two miners, named^Samuel Mitchell and A. Turnney were par^^ticipating in what is called a'tear.' in Union-^ville. During the evening they entered tbe^boose of a China washman, named Sang Lee,^by tweaking in tbe door, and while in tbe^house upset the stove and otherwise demor^^alised the household furniture, thtn left. Re^^turning again about the hour wf half past^eleven, the Chinaman followed Mitchell out^of the house, both running, and around to^the rear, snd both stopping, a shot was heard^fired aad Mitchell fell, exclaiming, I am shot.^The man Turnney ran up, examined Mitchell,^but could find no wound- Mhchell then pro^^posed to go hoaie to his lodging house. They^both walked over to tbe door, from which^point Turnney went home and Mitchell en^^tered, complained of being cold and was put to^bed by his fellow-lodgers, none of whom^knew he was shot. Yesterday morning they^found him in his bed cold snd stark in death's^slumber. Upon examination a pool of blood^was found beneath the couch. A man was^dispatched for the Coroner, Duke, who imme^^diately proceeded to the scene and em pan-^neled a jury, which, after due examination^and deliberation returned the following ver^^dict : ^That the deceased, Samuel Mitchell,^came to bis death from a shot tiied, it is sup^^posed from a revolver, in tbe bands of Sang^Lee,^ who was arrested and committed to^await the action of the Grand Jury, which^meets on Monday next. The above facts in^regard to the manner of the death are the^statements of the man Turnney, and, under^the circumstances, should be received with^proper allowance. It looks very suspicious, |^and while we would avoid injustice to any^human being, we are not prepared to express^an opinion as to the doer o* this fearful deed.^It offers a terrible warning to all those who^are disposed, under tbe influence of liquor, to^run riot and hold high revel in a boisterous^manner. We trust tbe truth will be fally^brought to light and justice be done.

Wemade a statement a few days ago upon^street information, that ore of Travis A^Bro.'s double teams became fractious and^ran away. We bave since learned that the^team in question was a span of bronchos that^had been bitched up only once before and^were being broke at the time to travel in^harness, for a party in this city, and not a^team belonging to tbe livery establishment^of Travis Bros. We make this correction^with great pleasure, for it is a fact well^known that this establishment are unusually^careful in letting customers have teams that^are perfectly safe and quiet, and we bave^never yet heard of a team from their stable^running away, except by carelessness of the^driver.
