Scotchman, aiid C. W. McBride, from Illinrot,. were
at work, on the div named, in a dift. The rest of
the workmen had" been to re- tbh prize li.;ht, and
got Iomw to supper.' The others not conmin- to
their evening meal, were- looked after. and the drift

EDIToR PosT :--I have at last determined
to drop the pick and shovel a few momannts
while I scratch you some items concerning
Deer Lodge c.untV.
Your efforts in aiding, throunh the me
dium of your paper, the development of
the wealth that lies buried beneath us, is
well known and appreciated in this conm
munity. The PosT is one of the indispen
sable institutions of Montan--so t ink
the miners here, as a glanrc at your sub

Butte city is teeautifu.y located on an
eminence near the junction of the left and
right branches of Silver Bow creek, and
close to a stately grove of pine trees,
beneath whose shelter has suddenly come
into existence it town, comiparativeiy.small
ai yet, but destined ere long to be one of
the most iouriy.hing and prosperous in the
Territory of ,lnt,,n:i.
Our lodes.num, . from two to threehun
dred, most of them are well defined, with
from two to seven feet crevices. The gen- t
cml quality of our quartz is better andr
richer and the facilities for working it,
are more convenienzt and abundant than
any where else. Thiesu are facts admitted
by all Coloradans, W:ashoo. men, and Cali
fornian,. The partiality of the latter for
everything Californian is well knowrn. and
heretofore has been rather it hard ob. tacti
to overcome. lHere, however, it has been
dispelled by stubborn facts.
When the first lodes were discovered Fin
thi.i section, pro'pectors were s:tisfied that
they were very rich, but oven then the most
sa.ig-uine were not prepared for the start
:iug dvehlopmnn.nts of thelns:t few Inoat'l,
duril:n which trnie many s afts h:va beenl
suns arrd tunnels run, t apprlrg the lodes at
a water le vel. From th :1 has been e
tracts"d pieces of lin, grained quartz, with
the. -itterring matal strewed n'.l ov,'r th,'m.
In fat, this is now a d,i!v occurrence.
