rations are being made for the Grand Union
Ball at Pickwick Hall next Mond'ay evening.
The-Committee of Arrangements are gentle
men, of experieuce and taste, and« intend that
the time and place shall be oneon which ''the
light fantastic toe" shall be tripped with in
finite delight.
School. Again. —Mr. D. P. Phelps will open
his school again on Wall street next Monday
morning. Be informs us that he has suc
ceeded in raising several hundred dollars for
the school house, and that only about $15 0
remains due. Mr ..Phelps is entitled, to some
credit for the- industry and perseverence
which he has exerted in freeing the building
from debt.
Lauge Deer. —A black-tailed deer, weigh
ing one hundred and ninety-five pounds, was
killed by Mr. Lackett, a few days ago,, on the
creek about ten miles from this town. Its
size and appearance made it a subject of
much curiosity while hanging in front of the
Peacock Chop House. M>r. Frampton has
several men constantly employed on the hills
in search of game, but very seldom secures
anytbiugof that size.
Masonic - Ball in Idaho. —St. John's Day.
(i,Dec. 27th) will be commemorated here by
grand ball under the management of tb
Masonic fraternity. The managers intend to

Territory. As St. John's Day conies in the
the midst ot the holidays, it will afford grat
ification to many seeking Gh ristmas and New
Year amusements, as well as to the members
most " ancient and hononable" ofe
of the
Idahoi Directory.—A. Directory ot all-the
towns in the Boise Basin, and Owyhee,.pub
lis bed by Mr. Geo. Ü^veus, is now ready for
delivery by its author. It is a very interest
ing and valuable work for all. business men
both in this Territory and in adjoining States
The Directory contains a. full list of the names
of the residents of the various to\y.ns, their
occupation, residence, &c., and also a list and
description of the various ledges and mills
in the country, together with an account of
the settlement of several ot the principal
camps, with their churches and benevoient
societies, and other matters of interest. It
has been compiled by Mr. Owens with much
care, and will prove a very valuable auxiliary
to every man engaged in business.. Most of.
the copies which, have been published are
already subscribed, for. Persons who have
not subscribed and who wish, to obtain a
copy should da so. at an early .day.
The Two BALLS.r— Two grand calico balle
came off here last Tuesdays evening fot the
benefit of one churah.. Lucky Church 1 The
opposition became very spirited.for a day or
two previous, and the.various canvassers with
their respective ball tickets were to-be founcL
on all sides eagerly, pressing the sale of the
tickets among,tbeir friends. The politicians
on electioodayweremere " sticks" compared
to the electioneers of last Tuesday. If Henry
Ward Beecher had circulated here duringjlhe
early, portion of the w-eek, he would have
thought the laurels of his ohnrch.popularity
were endangered by the number,and ardor of
the canvassers of the Idaho.-church. Tbe
only cause of the division, as far.as we have
learned it, consisted in the selection, of, a ball
in which the ball, should, he held. Magnolia
and Pickwick contested the palm a la Mozart
and Tammany. Both, parties were very ably,
engineered, contributing to< the happiuees-of.
a large crowd, and passing ofli very ple&sant
—the Magnolia taking the largest crowd,
le Church was probably benefited by tbe op
sition, it being not one of those cases where
rfect " psace and good will among men "—
women, rather, was conducive to tbe in
cits of- Christianity..

Lincoln's majority..................... 1,332
The above table gives only the majorities,
and may be regarded as mainly correct. It
is now reduced to a certainty that Lincoln's
majority will be from 1,000 to 1 , 200 .
To the foregoing, the McClellan majorities
in Union, Baker and Grant counties are to
be added. Grant county includes Canyon
City, which is strongly Democratic. From
all appearances, Lincoln's majority will not
exceed 1 , 000 , if it reaches that figure.
