Skrsoa . *-We, have been w iVit
in vain to hear you say something about
our ],i.tle gflob. We haveroj w cometp the
conclusion that, if we wished this place to
keeQ ppce with the rest of the aiaing
wdo , it has to go through Tour iddspen,
sable PosT. The miners in this vicinitx
arei.row-lookia. at the Pos as tl pfP their
own institutions, and as such, they wish to
be included in its cloumns, as well as other
mining districts -ef less note have been;
To a gin with, Biven's Gulch boasts of
havin taken out some of the largest nuge
gets tat have been taken out in the country.
One of them weighing $349 85, and not a
few weighing over $100. It is true that
the most of "the claims have been gutted
but the boys are making a good thing out of
.he bars and banks, which, in many in.
stances prove to be rich. There is plenty
of work on this gulch for three years to
come, and if we include quartz minin
this part of the country will not be worked
out for years. The richest lodes that have
been struck, are situated between this and
Ram's Horn gulches. The Monitor, Mor
men Booy, Henry Clay, Relief and several
others are between this and Ram's Iorn.
The facilities for mills are good, and tim
ber and water plenty near all the lodes.
We also have our sport here, as Virginia
City has had, at times. A ball now and
then, prize fights and knock downs are com
mon. We were treated in Frenchtown, on
on last Monday, at the saloon of Pelky &
Oliver. The combatants were' Hugh Ic
Gentry and Chris. Brannagan. James
O'Day seconded Hugh, and R. Pelky was
second for Chris. They fought thirteen
rounds in thirty-three minutes,HIugh wining
the fight. Both got pretty well tapped, but
Christv's eyes and nose suffered the most.
The affair ended with credit to all concern
ed, the fighters shaking hands and taking
several glasses of Rockfellow & Dennee's
best, then all retired, well satisfied that it
was no throw off. No more at present, but
if anything transpires worthy of notice, I
will keep you posted. Yours respectfully,
FREs~Nc ows.
From the HIancock (Ohio) Jeffersonian.

Washington, Oct 18th.
The following was received. here this
morning:
Ships Gap, hG., Oct. 18th. We took
ShipA Gap to day, capturing a part of the
24th North Carolina. Two corps were rep

It tuns out thq.he rube force wagct o1pg.
Thdeliladnce 41huereuday, was onTy pfiny 6f
rebel scouts. Gen. Curtis telegraphs that he occu
pied Independence on Bunday, dri the rebels
out. This intellig$eq bb. that t · 's main
army is not moving toward Kms with much ce.
lerity. It is thought here up to noon yesterdayj
Price's advance had not passed west of Lexington
and that the main force was now 4 ..[.4yette. A
report reached this city that his main body was re
treating eouth through Warren and Johnson coun
ties. A column of his force may have taken that
direction or may habd diverged for -lunder. The
rebel Gen. Clark's force on the north side of the
Missouri, is said to be in Chariton county. Chari
ton conqty li.s beyond Howard county, in which
Clark re-crossed from Boonville. The inference it
that all the important towns in Howard had been
entered by invaders. The retention of this force
across the Missouri appears to be another indica
tion that Price's force was not hurrisd. He seems
to be collecting plunder, and if compelled tooleave
the State, he doubtless expects to leave with mil
lions of her wealth in his possession.
Deserters from Hood's army report his
force at 30,000. The strength of his caval
ry is not known. Roddy mo'ed from Tus
cumbia yesterday.

which Ilood's aauy seem to be moving, is
exceedingly di calt for an inferior army to
rigorously pursue. Consisting of a narrow

The Richmond Enqu:irer of the 14th,
says: The prompt response that was made
to the call for men has already changed the
aspects of affairs below Richm~ond, and they
are erecting mortar batteries on Chapin's
farm. The Same paper has an article in
which it speculates most wildly, on the po
litical situation, and winding up with that,
should disasters attend Sherman-should
Sheridan be withdrawn from the valley
should Grant assault Richmond and be re
pulsed, then McClellan would be elected
President.
