FromTuesday s Daily.^ADVERTISE IT.
Thefollowing letter and call fur a^meeting on this (Tuesday) evening^solicited consideration :
1i i' ii i. \ n i ^. M. T.. March Jo, 7^9.^Mt'tsr*. Ban** ft, M^i'jet. ^^ Co.:
tfENTs: After reading the ^Statistical^Almanac^ showing the ^Renources ot^Montana,'' I cannot retrain from express^n^ to you my thanks for giving to the^public a work of such superior excel^^lence.
Ican sav, after visiting all parts of^the Territory, and after making a care^^ful examination of its vast and varied^resources, that your work gives a con-^rise, accurate and systematic view of^the ^Resources of Montaua.^ You have^wisely avoided those exaggerated state^ments s ^ common in such works, and ao^iniurior.8 to all parties; you have aI^o^avoided those partialities designed tor^the benefit ot particular individuals and^interests, so common in statistical^works.
Thefacts stated are so condensed and^x^ systematized that business men can^*oon get a clear and accurate view ot^our Territory. In this respect it has the^advantage ot those long, discursive and^philosophised works, which tickle the^tancy of some, but which the earnest, ;^working men. who rule the world, sel^^dom take time to read.
Inshort, yours is just the work that^ought tol^e circulated everywhere where^labor and capital exist^in the East, in^the West, iu the North and .n the^South.
Itwill give me pleasure to join our^enterprising business men in an effort^to give it a wide circulation.^Very ref^i^ecttully,
lour obd t serv't,^C. O. SWALLOW.
We,the undersigned, having rwad the^communication ot Prof. Swallow to^Messrs Bassett, Magee ^ Co., relative to^publishing and distributing East sail^West, another edition ot the * Montun*^Statistical Alumnae,^ fully endorse the^name, realizing the fact that some steps^should be taken to inform labor and^capital of the advantageous fields here^i.noccupied for the investment ot both,^and would recommend that a meeting^of our business men be held on Tuesday
^vening, April 6, 1H69, to take the mat^^ter into consideration.

Wthope this will be regarded as ic should
practical business matter. Every shrewd^merchantadvertises; every wise^State and Territory does the same thing.^Territory moat be peopled and capital intro^^duced that it-^ resources may be developed, its^citis* built, and its prosperity induced. The^West has been advertised untii it has been^peopled from the Alleghanies and the Pacific^to the Rocky Mountain.-*, and what, eighty^years since was wild era ess, has been made the^granary, the pasturage, and the specie vaults^of the continent. We are here, where the^two wave* of civilisation will meet, in a saawl^unexcelled for fertility, mineral wealth, and^health, offering inducements no other can^equal, but a land as ye^ almost unknown to^the masses of people, and only casually in^^troduced to *a pita Bats. We may hide our^light under a bushel, or place it upon the hill^tops. In the one case we wait the slow pop^^ulation and development that will drift in as^the years crowd out the dissatisfied of other^localities, or, in the other, invite the busy^energies of the enterprising and activr . ^hall^we do the oae, or the other^ Which, be/men*^men, is it to your interest to do f If you^can double the population and developed^wealth of Montana in two years by a trifling^expenditure, is it not your duty to yourselves^to do it ^ Ws believe it can be done to your^interest and to that of those who come, by a^ludidous advertisemnt of the actual in^^ducements offered here to people and money.^The publication referred to above has been^liberally noticed and quoted from by our ex-
uanges,and has done good. But re-arrange^it, add matter not requisite to its original^purpose, giving all information of the Terri^^tory that is asked daily by letters from^abroad, distribute ten or twenty thousand cop
ieswhere it will go into the hands of immi^^grants, capitalists, miners and merchants, and^it will turn a tide here like that which has^doubled the population of the States along^the lower Missouri in two years. At the^meeting this evening will be submitted facts^and figures concerning its publication that^will astonish you. The meeting will be held^for consideration this evening. We urge a^full attendance of the substantial men of^Helena.
FireMeeting^The Committee se^^lected by the citlsens of Helena to purchase^a house suitable for the Fire Department, beg^leave to notify them that they have purchased^the building formerly occupied by Fred White^as a dance house, on the corner of West^Main and Bridge streets, for the sum of^$1,200 currency. All parties taking an inter^^est in the welfare of our growing city, will^please meet at Robert Price's place of busi^^ness at the lower end of Main street, on^Wednesday next, at 3 o'clock, p. m., for the^purpose of housing the ^Machine,^ after^which there will be a meeting of the Helen*^Fire Co. No. 1., for the purpose of effecting a^perfect organisation.

Railroad. Private dispatches ad^^vise us that the Union Pacific Railroad will^run their trains into Corinne to-day, and the^mail for the Pacific Coast will be transferred^Irom that point to the end of the Central Pa^^cific by coaches. The mail for Utah and^Montana will be taken from the cars at Og-^den, from thence transferred to Salt Lake^City and remailed there for Helena. The^Wells, Fargo coaches will connect with the^railroad at Ogden for passengers. Thus our^mails will be one coach later than the passen^^ger from the same train. It will not be long^however, until a distributing office will be es^^tablished at Ogden, or whatever point shall be^selected as the City of the Junction, and in^that event our mails will be a little lees than^M.vty hours from the railroad.
KkomVineim.\.^We met Hon. EL P.^Johnson, Governor of the Bad Land.4, who^ju^t arrived from Virginia City. The Govern^^or reports Virginia very subdued, but every^one confidently expecting a prosperous sum^^mer. He, however, thinks Helena rather^lays over Virginia.
Answered.^S. C,^ ^Viola^ and^^Flake^ each gave the correct solutions of^the enigma in the Post^Snow. We neglect^^ed to acknowledge them yesterday.
KitKM News.^Mr. Leo. Watson ins^forms us that be is in receipt of a letter from^Capt. Sam DeBow, who informs him that he^will start for Montana, overland, and arrive^in Helena about the 1st of .May. He states^that X W. T. Co.'* boats are all ready, wait^^ing for the breaking up of the ice in the^river, and that they will start about the 1st of^April.
Pom e.^A man whose surname was^John, but whose other was mixed, deposited^with Judge Ed wards the small rum of $2o^and costs for disturbing the peace.
Stakted.We were informed by^Aaron Hershfield, Esq., of the firm of L. H.
HerschfieldA Bro.. that his brother started^lrom Xew York City last Tuesday for this^city, ami will shortly arrive.
WiiitkPine.^Over fifty men left^yesterday for White Pine by ever^ conceiva^^ble manner of conveyance. They were all^miners.
Personal.Hon. t'litus Harbour, ot
DeerLodge, arrived yesterday in good spirits^and robust health. He was most cordially^welcomed by a host of friends.
Personal.('. H. Dahler, Esq., of^Hnssey, Dahler A Co., arrived by last coach^from Virginia City. T. C. Stevens, Esq., l^ft^tiii; morning for same t lace.
Frtn Wednesdays' Daily.
Hct'ttii to Induce I minium^tion lo ^1 on!ana,
Alarge meeting of our most prominent^and wealthy business men was held at the par^^lors of the First National Bunk last evening,^for the purposes set forth in the following^official report of the meeting I
Themeeting was called to order and Major^Maginnis nominated as Chairman, who de^^clined, and proposed the name of Mr. James^Riug, who was called to the Chair, and Mr.^Jas. Magee appointed Secretary.
TheChirman said he was not fully conver^^sant with all the objects of the meeting, and^called upon some one for an explanation,^when Capt. Mills, of the Post, said that Kan^^sas and Nebraska bad distributed copses^of a similar work, and the result was, that^emigration and capital was induced to those^States. Wy miing, through its agent, Mr.^Silversmith, is circulating thousands of pam^^phlets on the resources of that Territory,^which will have the eflect of bringing it into^notice, and likewise inducing labor and capital^to turn their attention in that direction. If^the people cf Montana will^exert such an influence, a tide of emigration^and capital is sure to flow to our Territory.^Western exchanges quote largely from and^speak well of it, and if 10,000 copies are^printed and distributed, there will result and^a large emigration from the East, White^Pine, and other sections, setting toward Mon^^tana the coming summer.
Mr.King, the Chairman, fully indorsed^Capt. Mills' remarks. We must let the peo^^ple outside of the Territory know what sort^of country wo have before we can expect^them to emigrate here. We have, said the^speaker, a better and richer Territory, both in^an agricultural and mineral view, than any^other of the Western States or Territories.^In fact, we have the best of countries in every^respect, to which to invite emigration and^capital, and by advertising this to the world,^we can get plenty of substantial people to^come here. In his opinion. 10,000 copies of^^The Montana Statistical Almanac^ was the^very thing that was needed to fulfill this ob^^ject.
MajorMaginnis said that when Minnesota^was falling off in point of emigration, and
Esoplewere rapidly leaving that State, the^egialatur* offered a reward for the boat work^on bar resource*. Such a book was published,^ahowin^ the advantages possessed by ^her,^and on Its circulation, emigration rapidly in^^creased. We want such a work in Montana,^to set forth and prove the superior induce^^ments Montana can oiler to both moneyed^men and labor.
Afterother remarks by the gentlemen pres^^ent, on motion, a committee of three were^appointed, conisting of Messrs. Lee Watson^Major Boyce and Benjamin Stickney, with B.^P. Bassett aa Corresponding Secretary, to so^^licit Mit-^criptions in town and cooperate^with the business men in other parts of the^Territory, for material aid in getting out the^work.
Thefollowing resolution was unanimously^adopted:
RassLVRD,Thar the Financial Committee^be empowered to negotiate with Bassett, Ma^^gee A Co., and purchase the copyright of the^^^Montana Statistical Almanac,^ revised as^agreed up.m, and to collect and disburse all^funds necessary to carry out the objsefs of^this meeting.
Onmotion the meeting adjourned.
Coo*..A Frenchman named Joe La*
mierewho was the first purcha-er ol the
wreckof the Amelia Poo, met X. Biedler on^the street last Saturday and asked the favor^of an introduction to the Pacific stables. X.^did to, and Jos hired a horse for an hour or^so, returned and paid for it. On Sunday he^came again and hired a horse but did not re^^turn. It was ascertained that be rode up lo^Unionville, and on the same day sold the^horse to a miner for some $140, and left for^some other part of the country. X. secured^the horse hut has not been able to ascrtaiu^the whereabouts of the aforesaid Joe. Livery^stable men throughout the Territory should^take caution from this and look out for Joe.
Medicinal.We saw a gentleman,
Mr.E. Port, from Cave Gulch, who came to^this city last Saturday night so crippled up^with inflamatory rheumatism that he was un^^able to walk, and had to be carried about.^He commenced taking baths at E. Frank's^Bathing House, and after being the recipient^of only three Russian baths, he u able to^walk. We saw him again yesterday and he is^free of pain and almost well. We deem it a^pleasure to call the attention of the public^to these baths, when, aa in this case we learn^by personal knowledge that they are effica^^cious and powerful in the h^aling of such^dii
liitAKDI^oDc.e.^We are informed by^Mr. Bramhall that the Charter for the organ^^isation of a Grand Lodge of Good Templars^was received by last mail, and a call has been^made for the meeting of the Grand Lodge on^the 19th day of March. It is expected that^every.Lodge in the Territory will be fully^represented by delegates. Further ]^articu^^lars will be given as time develops them.
StreetCleaning.^ We are pleased^to see that a large number of our citizens are^devoting considerable attention to cleaning^the streets, and in a few days they will be in^an improved condition.
TheMiners working the bar between^Last Chance and Dry Gulches, are busy clean*^ing out the side ditches which conduct the^water from the big ditch upon their claims.^It is the intention to turn the water into this^ditch to-day we believe.
MailContract*.^We are informed^that Junius G. Sanders, Esq., has received the^contract for carrying the U. 9, mail from^this city on the following routes: To Boze-^man via Kadersburg, Gallatin City, Morse's^Store. From this City to Cave Gulch; also^from this city to Unionville. We understand^these routes are all stocked with tri weekly^service.
Kkomthe O.u.i.atin.^J. J. Hull ar^^rived ye3terdsy from this portion of our Ter^^ritory and reports everything wearing the^most promising appearance. The farmers are^busy plowing and sowing, and in a short^time all the grain crops will be put in. Every^^one seems confident of a splendid crop the^coming summer and are correspondingly^happy.
FromThursday's Daily.^Fi,attkkin^ . Exhibit.^We have^been permitted by Mr. Carpenter, of th^ Pio^^neer Insurance Agency, to examine a list of^all the Fire Insurance Companies doing busts^ness in the State of New York, as compiled^from official sources, for the year \ wheres^by it appears that out of 1 o5 companies rep^^resented in the State named, the Home In^suranuce Company, of New Haven, has done^the third largest business. The premium re^^ceipts of this sterling company for the year^ending Jan. 1,1869, were over two million^dollars, and the losses paid, one and one-third^millions, being a larger amount than those^paid by any other company save one, in Amer^^ica. At the same time its assets have been^sensibly increased and now amount to $1,-^ti22,974.39, thus sustaining the reputation^which it has Ions enjoyed, of being one nf^the strongest companies in the country. It^must b^ a saurce of gratification to our citi^^zens that Carpenter's Pioneer Aget.cy enables^them to obtain insurance in a first class com^^pany, which can make such a flattering ex^^hibit as that indicated by the above figures.
BentonNews.^From Mr R^ id. s^p^^-^cial Indian Agent for Montana, arrived last^evening from Fort Benton, and we leurn that^some days ago the wagon-master of the Dia^^mond ^R^' Train, was shot in the hip by some^Indians who belonged to either the l'iegan or^Blood tribes, within two miles of Fort Shaw,^while on bis way to the train. The Indians^chsssd him some six miles, endeavoriug to^capture him. but he reached his train in safe^^ty....The Missouri river is very low, more^so than at any previous season. The side^streams are very shallow and much apprehen^^sion is felt that unless we have a heavy rain this^season, the boats will be unable to reach Ft.^Benton even at a lata day. Mr. Held does^not apprehend nny difficulty with the Indian^tribes IS the Territory aad vicinity the com^^ing summer. The grain is springing up in^all the valleys, and there is even now good^grafting for cattle.
FireDepartment.^Helena Fire^Company No. L assembled at o'clock and^took charge ot their apparatus. The Compa^^ny, in full uniform, headed by the Helena^band, marched through the streets with the^truck loaded with ladders, hooks, buckets,^etc., and placed it in the engine house, corner^Clore and Bridge streets, where it now awaits^the appearance of the fire fend to coins forth^and do service. The company is composed of^the best citizens of our place, and will be a^credit to the city. The meeting was ad^^journed till to-day, as will be seen by a call.
Personal.We touched flesh with^our old friend and compeer in the craft(y) en^^terprise for diffusing useful information^throughout Montana, John H. Rogers, Esq.,^of the Deer Lodge Independent. We were^glad to see him looking so happy and con^^tented, and were pleased to listen to bis touch^^ing narrative of a juicy romance of the clas^^sical Deer Lodge Valley. May you be long
inthe landCol. Hanna, Paymaster for the
Districtof Montana, left this morning for^Omaha in pursuance of orders. He will re*^return by first steamers. Tiie Maj. has made^a host of iriends during his stsy among us.^who will learn with' regret of his departure^and watch for his return.
lti^ ERs,.)S ^ ity.^Mr. A. M. KsI.t has^taken in charge the Rutan Furnace, and is^preparing to run it upon rock from that vi^^cinity. Ws have every confidence in the suc^^cess of this gentleman for Mr. Esler has had^considerable experience in operating with^furnaces, and the rock which hs proposes to^work is very rich. We look for fsvorable re^^sult* from tnis new enterprise, and shall keep^the public advised.
HelbkaLir.UAitY Rooms will hereaf^^ter be open from seven to eleven each night^during the week aavl every Sunday. The^spring season is upon us and the labors and^business consequent, upon the time ot yeas^have corns to our people, bonce our citizens^will have little time during the day to loiter^in library rooms. Papers from almost every^State in the Union can bo found upon the^tables of the Association, and it u a very^pleasant plac* of retort.
Improvkmemts.^ Travis Bros, have^by a fresh cost of paint and whitewash added
newluster to their stable and officeThe

Departed.Judge H. Knowles yes^^terday adjourned court for tbe purpose of go^^ing over to Virginia to adjourn the court,^which convenes according to law this week.^He will return on next Sunday and convene^court again on Monday.
Man*Rt'n Over.^ As Wells-Fargo's^coach was turning around the corner of Main^and Bridge street, the leaders ctruck a drunk^^en man who was oblivious to all terrestial^affairs, and noth horses and couch passed over^bim. He sprang up uninjured and considerably^iudignant that he should receive such treat^^ment. We were a little sorry for the man^ourselves.
QOCAA large quantity of gulch gold^is being brought into town by miners, who^have sluiced it out this spring. From present^indications the supply of water will not last^long, and those who toil tor the golden^templer should be diligent.
Bear.We learn that there was a^very large bear killed in the Boulder hills by^nome daring hunter, which, it is said, was the^largest ever seen in Montana, according to^previous descriptions.
