EASTEll N MONTANA.
The prospect of opening up commu
nication with the States by way of
Eastern Montana is very encouraging
at present. The Northern Pacific Rail
road Company is giving the project all
the aid it can, and has contracted with
the lehding Rocky Mountain Transpor
tation company, the Diamond R, to
freight all the goods they ship toMon
tana. They have a fleet ef boats ai
chored at Bismarck, the present te',
minus of their road, to start up the
Missouri river so soon a. navigation
opens, and put freigIts into the Terri
tory earlier than by any other route,
and if a road is opened to the mouth
of Powder river, will send freight by
that route as well as by Muscleshell.
The Company are more anxious for an
eastern connection than all other, as
they will be more benefitted by it.
Helena is more interested in bringing
her freights by way of Muscleshell
than on any other route, and will give
the bulk of her freight to the North
ern Pacific, and thereby aid in opening
up a road in that direction. Already
the road to Muscleshell has been gone
over by a competent surveyor deputed
to do so by the citizens of Helena, and
no doubt exists that the merchants of
that place will ship the most of their
supplies from thatdirection. Soon im
provements and stations will spring
iup all along the road from Helena to
Muscleshell, and settlements be made.
There is a project, in which General
Ord, U. S. A., is very much interested,
to open a road from Point of Rocks on
the Union Pacific to Fort Ellis and
Bozeman. Sometime since the Iel
ena Gazette published the substance
of a letter from Col. Brackett, of the
2d Cavalry, to the Chicago Tribune in
regard to Captain Jones' expedition,
which was out last summer looking up
a new route from the Uffion Pacific
railroad to Montana, which is claimed
to be a success. The writer says that
-'on the 10th day of July last the ex
pedition left Camp Brown, on Little
Wind river, in Wyoming Territory,
and traveled to the Yellowstone lake,
passing along the cast side of it, sur
veying the route as they went. From
the Yellowstone lake the pack train
went to Fort Ellis, for supplies. The
expedition returned to Camp Brown,
passing down the west side of the lake,
and finding a road which can be made
an excellent stage route with a veil
dibtance in round numnbers may be
slated as follows: From the Yellow
stone river, at what is known as the
Miner's Bridge, (being forty miles be
low where the river leaves the lake),
passing down the east side to Camp)
Brown, is 210 miles, though the dis
tance from the south end of the late
to Camp Brown is but 145 miles.
Th re is a very good trail already
made, which could be easily converted
into a good wagon road. From Camp
Brown to South Pass City is 50 miles,
and thence to Bryan, on the Union
Pacific railroad, 100 miles; so that the
whole distance from Bryan to the Yel.
lowstone lake is a little less than 300
miles. . From the Point of Rocks, on
the Union Pacific railway to Camp
Brown, a stage road could be made
which would not be much over 100
nJiles, so that the lake could be re&ched
with only a little over 250 miles stage
The Colonel adds: "In addition to
being a near and direct route to the
Yellowstone Park, there is other and
still more important objects of making
a short and direct route to tlhe heart of
Montana, including Boizeman, Virginia
City and Helena, and the rich gold
fields and magnificent grazing country
of that region. The fact is, the road
will be of incalculable benefit to the
people of the heart of the continent,
a.d open up new aveifues of trade and
eomnerae, besides bringing into culti
vation vast extents of as fine wheat
land as he beneath the sun."
In addition to this the people of
Cheyenne, Wyoming, are much ex
cited di the qwestieo of a eennection
from that place with Montana, and
have been~wcorking for several years
onpioje ta to accomplish that objeq~.
They are now alive to the question,
i4sdre working.-ith zeal ad energy.
The citizens of Bozeman and Gal
l county feel, perhaps, a livelier
intrest in an eastern connection than
a btfher portions of Montana. They

are interested in securing a point at

lowatone from this place. There is
already not much difficulty for loaded
wagons to go to any point on that
stream, and the route from the mouth
of Powder river has been traveled bl.
emigrants sad their temas.
In view of all these onsideration ,
we feel pretty confident that travel and
fheighting will begin nwxt spring on
the routes east of us, and in a short
period nearly all the business of N _on~
tana will be done in that di;ection.
With such prospects bf'ore us, our
people should be actiely at work, and
let no section !, the start of them.
Every effort should be used to utilize
these Bplendid advantages, and all
~aouald feel.a personal igterest in the
important question of an early eastern
communication. Every step we take
in that direction will be met by corres
ponding onus trom those east of us,
and we will meet half way and shake
hands over the wild chasm that has
heretofore kept us apart, and the hith
erto hidden rich resources which have
lain idle for-countless ages will be de.
veloped, and fortunes will be realized
by the bold and intrepid men who pene
trate these sources of hidden wealth.
We believe the largest town of Mon
tana is yet to be on the Yellowstone,
and those who are fortunate enough
to secure a good foothold in the future
metropolis will be the wealthy men of
the State of Montana; for so soon as
there is a direct eastern connection
through from our Territory to the
States, population will pour in on us
by the tens of thousands, and our ad
mission as a State at once conceded.
Then let everybody aid to the fullest
extent every effort made to open up
roads east of us, and no longer remain
"out in the wilderness."

To the Editor of the N. Y. Herald:
In your paper of the 26th inst. con
siderable space is devoted to state
ments in relation to myself, in connec
tion with aid from the Government for
constructing the Pacific roads. I beg
leave to request that such statements
may be suspended until an application
is made to Congress by the companies.
You may rest assured that no applica
tion will be presented on behalf of tihe
road with which I am officially con
niected, unless upon a basis absolutely
secure to the Government, and certain
to promote the material interests of the
country, by giving active employment
to thousands of deserving men, now
idle. If an artugement can be de
vised by which these great works can
be completed, not only without any
possibility of loss to the Government,
but, on the contrary, its best interests
good men that this is a consummation
devoutly to be wished. I trust that
the importance of the subject will se
cure its careful consideration by the
press of the country, before criticising
it adversely. Very respectfully,
THOMAS A. SCOTT.

CHANGE IN PENITENKIARY OFFICERS.
Rev. Hugh Duncan while in Vireinia last
week resigned his position as one of the
Board ot Directors of the Montana Peniten
tiary. Immediately succeeding this informa
tion His Excellency Governor B. F. Potts
arrived from Virginia City and succcedina
his arrival Warden C'. B. Adriance, tendered
his resignation winch was accepted and Mr.
I. N. Buck of Deer Lodge was appointed in
his stead, We do not understand that any
grave differences existed between t:he Gov
ernor and Mr. Adriuance, in fact that it was a
matter of only a couple of dollars expended
by Mr. Adriance for articles the Governor
did not think it necessary to supply the pris
oners with, which caused the lack of harmony
between the two gentlemen. However, the
Governor has control of the prison and as
we believe hlie catries his ideas of rigid econ
omy into every department he controls and
for the bests interests of the Territory, we
presume in this instance lihe did for the best
as he saw it. Than Mr. Buck the appointee,
he could not haves ,4cted a worthier or more
deservin. gentlemhan, and as to the best of
our klnowlec;tZ Mr. Adriance was a first-rate
Warden, so Jo we believe Mr. Buck will be.

Enogrved o, BSneat A. . falter,
Under the direction of the Amerlosae Art Union,
and adopted and sotd by the L~e Memorial
Association inceerporated under the laws of Vir
gilni, for the purpose of eviiting a Monument to
the memory of Gen. ttobert E. Lee.
SXip* a ll ]t S. t.s Presasea s That
we of the Executive Committee of the Lee Memo
rial Assoolation have eonstituted and appointed
W. W. Bostwolk& Co., of Cinoinnati, Ohio, our
Deneral Age.ts to seo tor this Association te life
Bteel Engraved Portrait of ,'eneral It E. Lee, to
rsise money in furtherance of the object of this As
soclation, namely: To the erection of a monu
ment to his memory at the Washanlton and Lee
University, Lexington Virginia.
Witness pigi atures o the Executive Committee,
GEN. W. N. PENIILMTON, Chairman.
Cast. A. DAVIDSOF, Secretary.
The grand Monament to the msemory of General
R. E. Lee is now rapidly being construrted under
the direptiep and skill of Prof. Valentine, nad in
order to raise funds in fartheranee of this great ob
ject, the Lee Memorial Association place before the
people this life size steet engraved portrait of Gen.
It. if. Lee which hlds been produced at great ex
pense, in response to an almost universal desire to
a periect likeness of one whom it seemed all at
tempts to worthil, portay had failed. It has been
the aim of the artIst to master the more minute de
tail of feature and expression, and embody flly
the character of the supeect. The success in this
particular is probably without parallel in the his
tory or Steel Pertrait Engraviug. So true to na
ture Is it that one might almo-t expect to see the
shadow of thought pass over his grave mnjentic
It is pronounced by the famIly and frtEk of
(kn. Lee the most perfect likeness of the great
General eves taken. and as a work of art the finest
of its kind of the present eentury.
The many admirem of the departed chieftian in
Gallatin couwty and the Territorory have now the
only chance ever before presented of possessing a
correct life like portrait of Get. Lee through the
local agent. They will at the same time uasist in
perpetuating the memory of the greatest o: Ameri
eangenerals. The names and postoffne address of
subscribers are recorded in a haddsopely bound
book, and forwarded to Lexingbon, Va., for future
reference, and for future generations to look at eno
