Col.

How shrewd this fellow is to caution the Standard and its readers against The Teller. Just as though the reading public were all fools and could not for themselves decide what to believe. -'It says itself j it will publish anything if it cannot get official news." The person who in dited the above quotation for the Stan dard as an assertion of The Teller be he an official^ scrub or both tells a falsehood. The Teller said Tf*we do not gel the official we shall publish that coming through other sources the most reliable obtained." "A state ment which it Ins most faithfully veri fied since the beginning of the cam paign." We notice that The Teller's news is read even bv officers in the re«- * O nlar service with double the interest that is inspired by the official reports, .and because The Teller contains more truth with less display of military fl ur j 1 I I ; I ish and sterotype pomp.

Mr. Dun well says that the hostiles trimmed a tree and suspended a white flag upon the top of it and the narrow trail lead iog to their camp had brush fortifica tiotfS all along ou each side for a "reat distance, showing the design of the In. o/jdian to cut off the troops "had thev ap proached their camp. * Ki : THE I\üi l\S IX MO'S I AX, from Helena, Aug, 7.—Advices Missoula to the morning of the Gth say., i Gibbon, with 200 regulars of Inlan ; . , ... ... i , g ji na7 trv m wagons, left Missoula to to how : th ' e hostiles at i P .

The Mule Contracts. —It strikes ! us as though not everything was all "O j K" about these government contracts j for mules. As a usual thing when the government requires subsistance or ani mals, the Quarter masters or A. Q. M. gives due notice, invites competition and ! awards tho contract to the lowest, res- j ponsible bidder, but on the present oc- 1 casion, preparatory to an indefinite cam- j oaign, we are simply apprised that Mr. j : Russell or Mr Oppenheimer wants so ! many pack mules, not the government, 1 then they aro forwarded to Lewiston and turned over to good old Uncle Sam at a nice round figure. This may be all right but we fail to see it, although it is not yet after 4 o'clock. War.Reverses Many Things.— In peace Gen. Howard's profession is to turn sinners from the gates of hell.
