"*tioMa Crrr.--On arriving at this *lsae
wblt astonishes any straoger'is the aise,
aplarance and vast amount of busines,
tht is here beheld. Though our city is
buta year old, fine and substantial built
ingahave been erected, and others are ra
idlygoing up. We are safe in saying tha
100buildings ae being erected each wes3
in Virginia City and it environs. NeUda
and Central City are qually Frosperer
Indeed the whole appears to the stranger to
be the wor o. m0i c-the viaisa of a
dream. But Virginia City is not a mytha
paper town, but a reality. That it is a fst
plaee none will doubt. The b[iiness mea
are enterprising, energetic, and being well
acquainted with the wants of the -iner
have large and well selected stocks.for our
trade. It may be asked by our readers in
the States, why this prosperity ? The an
swer, gold. No richer diggings exist, we
believe, anywhere, than are found in oar
gulches, while rich quarts leads aboaed
through oar Territory. The asmest of
precious metal existing in these leads will
a t be known for hundreds of year; for
none can estimate the period when they
ill be exhausted. The placer diggings
will require years to work them oat So
that the future of Montana Territory is
bright and dazzling. Many 'persos ae
taking out $1*~ er day to the hand. We
were shown a nqAptX taken out at
Summit, worth $700-a beautiful spai
men.Many other fine specimens can be men
in the windows of our bankers. Wags
ase high-from $6 to $12 per day. 01
miners have the prefereMe. as they me
worth muoh more than green hands. Any
hing in the shape of labor commands hi
rtes. We know of none having elanIs,
but are taking out large amounts, and da
he dirt will pay by a second washing, am
the ground has not been a fourth gone ovex
mining will be the principal feature of ou
business for years. .The other side of the
picture is this -we desire not to decetive
but to give facts. All the claims, a a
matter of course, around our city, ha,.
long since been taken up. These must be
purehaid, and that too at very high fig
ures. A "Pilgrim," as the emigrant Is
called,who comes here must work for some
body else, or if he has means, purchase a
claim, or strike out for other diggings, sev
eral of which have recently been dis*oc
ered in our Territory. Many persons as*
riving here, not finding nuggets of gold on
the pine trees, and finding mining very
hard work, and they not fairly able to eom=
pete with old miners, become discouraged,
=ad rturn home. This, we think, is folly,
as thet is no need of any person being oa
ieJ.Yiient 'who =am es the IRt'i~ 1b
talim , aa that too at good rates. An e.
dimary laborer can get $6 per day, aad thi
in gold, making it equal to $12 in pgr -
backs. He can board himetif for V1,00
thas receiving $11 in greenbacks per day.
This will seem fabulous to our Easter

gold makes everything high; and bhsi-a

and Nevada cities. Hereafter, we shal

His Srzcn.-Governor Edgerton paid ous

$he guest of W. F. Sanders, Esq., our
townsman. On Friday evening, his honor
was given a serenade. A large crowd
gathered-the band discoursed sweet mu

abdressed the crowd briefly. He remarked
tSat the growth of our beautiful city ap
peared the work of magi; the vast rich

.st emigrant to this "Switserland" of
America. As the Executive of our Terri
tory, he pledged his word that the laws
asould be executed. This is what our peo
pie want, and what we know the Governor
and his appointees will give us. Being one
of us, the Governor will labor earnestly
.for the interest of our Territory. His re

OUR VzNQMuzA. MaR Wr--HMaMn peoMIn
have the idea that our eoantry is no
adapted to agricultural purposes. This
may be and we think is true of a portion,
but we have seen many large potatoes,
turnips, onions, etc., that have been raised
in our ralleys. On the Madison farming is
carried on qnite extensively, and we are in
formed that the crops with the exception of
coen ae ~ite ged. In the Bitter 6e0
Valley the crops are ed Wa4 a latre mr- :
plue will be produeed, whice will lnd a
ready ant good market. Let a portion of 1
our citizens turn their attention to farming '
and stock-raising--they will make money, 1
and the people will receive proviosons much I
lower-a plenty can be produced to sus- i
tain our population though it were quad- I
rupled; this would keep our money at
hcime. We think it far better to pay the I
farmer at our door a good price for pro- 1
visions than to purchase in the States or at !
Salt Lake, and pay the enormous price for
freight. Let fur people look at this matter '
sad see the money in it, and we will have t
many thriftyfarmern next season. By-the- c
by we see that certain gentlemen, who are I
belding a temple Ja Salt Lake, have raised I
the. pricee of proviions enormously. Did I
they take into c. ,:-ic',.ration that it takes
two to make '. ;._rgain? They being a
little short about this timc,, we think they
are s mruch iW noed . Fc :. p1ld so we are
'8I ieir cabbages. Speculators for a time i
may monopolize the markets, but it is only t
for a short period; let those having any
thing to sell find the market and dispose of t
It, and a proper investment of the receipts i
genmrally yields a larger proit than is ob- (
tained by holding on when the market is
good. Our produce men will see to it that
our city will.be well supplied with abund
ane. for the winter.
Oml TanP ron ForT BDIrow.-Though
the distance is only two hundred and sixty
miles, yet we were fifteen days on the way.
The road is good, the country principally.
marie which is well watered and afords
abundance of rich pasture ranges. Many
farms are being taken up, and soon there
will be a considerable population in that
dim:tion engaged in agriculture and stock
raising. This is what we want-open up
iums~a, boys, and you will be richly repaid
for the little labor required. We visited,
i.jr Creek, where diggings have been
dicovered; here we found some fifty
ainers opening up claims. We took dinner
with our old friends who came with us up
the river, and a good one it was. Boyp,.
don't let the keg get empty, we may call
agai. Passing on, we stopped a few
am om the PricklyfPear; here mipiag is
w-r6t on quite exensively; there has
nI aothing big as yet found, but the av
rage is good, each man taking out, as
they tnformed us, from six to fourteen
dollaw per day. Claima can be obtainc
Svery reasonably. In this vicinity 'i
foud very rich quarts leads, containing
.s a , o -.- t )end LCastrit's).
a over $600 gold and $200 siler to
the ton. There is as abundance of leads
is thi vicinity and many of them are very
rich. On Dry Creek, between Silver Creek
"ad Prickly Pear, gold has been recently
discovered, and a big stampede has taken
plas thither. Th scarcity and the dis
tase that water to be brought will
it expensive, and though the ground
may pay, enough is not yet known to
sreae a stampede. Usually at those
polals parties interested get up sensation
mr(or to get a rush. The boys should be
on their guard.
STOCK-RAIjsNao u Mo-Trist.--We never
aw a country more adapted to stock-raising
Oan Montana--the grass is abundant,
mutiful streams of clear sparkling water
ow through rich valleys; cattle are rolling
b fatness. In the valleys but little snow

for winter, as prices must neoessarily ad
vanee. Thle may not be just the time to
purchase as the market yet has a down
ward tendency, but provisions must go up
before spring much higher than present
prices. Notwithstanding the heavy influx
of people labor still keeps up from five to
six dollars per day, and work for all. The
mines are paying well, but claims are
taken up and held high. New field are
6pened, and we are satisfied that rich
gulehes will be discovered the present sum
mer. Many of our people are farming and
grasing as this is found to be a very lu
crative business; stock-raising especially
cannot fail to be exceedingly remunerative
when we take into consideration thejpres
l;.g prie4 . boat, amnt when it costs noths
ing to raise cattle but simply looking after
them, as they live all winter on the grasses
of our valleys and are fat in the spring;
thus our stock-raisers are saved the trouble
of laying up provender in the winter. The
emigrants coming into the country are
with few exceptions intelligeht, indus
trious and enterprising men, just the pop
ulation to develop the vast resources of
our Territory. We wish them swccess in
their various pursuits.
Tna UsI or DIADLY WXAPOIs.--We see
a poster on our streets varning. rJ persons
against the use of deadly weapons, under
the pretext of self-delense, or in any other
case, except for the protection of life and
propery, and thae only as a "last.resort,"
saying that all who violate this notice will
be visited with swrnary punishmc nt. This
notiee is signed by the Vigilance Com
mittee. From what our community know
of this Committee they know it is not a
" myth," bat what is written will be exo.
oUted. Being a stranger we are not ac
quainted with the domestic troubles of our
peaMk; but presume that there is good
reaso for the eaUtion of the Committee.

StATRa.-We JPa e reotdy .s.n ClsI*in
fank Moore, of the steamboat Cutter, now
lying at the mouth of the Mariaa River, 12
miles below Fort Benton, undergoing re
pairs. She will return to the States in fve
or six weeks, thus giving those a chance
who wish to winter at home, for a speody
and cheap transit. The boat is light draft,
and commanded by old "Frank." The
passengers will have a good time. Not
withetanding, in to-day's paper, we speak
of the LaCrosse Liae, all the passengers
who came up with Capt. Moore, speak in
the highest terawn of him as a man. He
has had experionce in "artillery practice '
-the "bloody Ingins" had better look out.
Terms of pr.isage we do not know, but pre
same that Frank will have sense enough to
inform us before he leaves for "America."
