VIRGINIA CITY, M. T. 0 Jaturday, ...* Ja 14th, 1865. Shermaat's Christmas .1l8 to Pres. denat Lincola. The nob!est and most welcome Christmas gift ever presented by one man to the rep resentative of a nation, is the city of Sa vannah,-which Sherman las given to Pree ident Lincoln, as a revoacher for the success of his enterprise. Never since the warwas first proclaimed, till now, did the Union cause appear so prosperous as it dooes tt day; and never did the dark clouds fore boding the storm carryingru;n in itotrack, so darkly lower over the Confederacy. The deeperato game will soon be played out, and remoree alone will be the portion of the guilty leaders ,ho have Seduced their ignorant followers to the commission of .tho helliqh crime of rebellion. One by ueo the armnies of the South are being conqul:r ed and destroyed, and the signs of the times point to negotiations on the part of many of the rebel states, entered upon with the hope of averting the destru·cion which must attend a t much lon ;er resistance. Wil rning;on and' Charleston are the only two poiuts at which the rebels can receive ma ter:al aid from abroad. These are belea guered and will soon fall or be rendered unapproachable. Lee's sunplies will aiso be cut of, anud his inprogna:l o position will then be only a tomb for b;msclf and his army. llood is a forlorn fugitivo. Price is no longer to be dreuded. E: rly has beon beaten to a stand still by 8horiaIn. Lee .a.d Br:eckinridg. alone remain, and tJhay will not r,.main many mouths. Sooa will the eanthquake chout of victory announce the triumph of the cease of liberty and Justice, ain tha return of the misguided .people of the south, to their natural al lgiancee. The tide of victory s?.ts surelv and strongly onward and toon will the fcr rent prayers of thousands be answered, and peace w:th all ita blessings ag,'in dwell in t.e land. The Achlaerrnenta of a Year. One year ego thia evening, this village then a mere ha:lnot, wus surrounded by a line o' pickets arumed to the toeth, whL, all night ]o,:g ke.t " watch rnd ward" over its E!oeping, unconscious inhabitants. The mc;rni:a caxni , and with it crowds of pK ople froi r5turmh, Pine Grove, Highland, Nevada, J.auiht:on and elsewhere, hut of their errand thitler, many of our inh:abi tants were uttc..l ignorant. Every persce desiring to be, passed through the line of pickets inoot4w:n was ashuitted, but no ur gent ne,:esaity was su~icient to procure a pase the other way. About 11 o'clock e. n., squaRds of arncd men wei 5 e.rcLnr the town, anJ in three hours, iveo m.u had been arrested, and a li:tta later were es corted by the i;::ncsrase crowd to an uti:n isaed house in front of what is now the :,one E!ke,':us. where they were hung Withk:'t a dihselo;.g i oico, unl?.s from their wicked rang. T'ha arnes of the`e friv men were John (Ganlgher. Boone Helm, Hays Lyon, Frank Parish at! b(xorge Lanea. Of the actors in thosn scenes, it is' not proper now to speak, bat of I cc1u,:c. which led ct thcm it i- not inupr.;.er to Scv a word. The:e are but o fw of r prnt i-lhabianr.ts who knew the desper.stt char actor of the ruiir spirits here then. Meo,. v was du:n:anded of our merchants as a lom., whln they kucw thve cou:d not hpn.: f-or a rturn, andl a rtfu3iL wa:, mu::et with thr-ats --iometimes with person il v:ol nce . l'vly men at one time lay h-lirless inl ~kinur's siloon, al;l shot ors ia)bed, and riots, routs. and uniawfal easermblies were of daily oc currence. Men were roLbed in cabins, on frequented highways, and murder w as often co!nitttd in the broad light of d ,r. Tahe hanging of Ives in the preceding December Was a move in the right direction, but the aiseaae required a more radical cure. Beforo that day "Red"e and Brown had been hung on the Stinkingwater, and Pl::m mcer, Ray and Stinson had been e!ctud t at Bannack. These executions had taken C place at night, and not very n.any wero in t the secret. But bohere in V'irginia it w.e : di'ferent. It was the doings of the commu nity, not of any conmittee, and the cown- - munity has stood by the doings of that day I. with rare unanimity. That work was weil o begun, well executed, anl tlished and the t result is seen in the quiet of onu towns, in c our immunity from brawl, quarrels and d orimo of all kinds. it crimo of ail kinds. ,Occasionally thure occurs hero, as there will in all communities, serious oiT'nces, but we have courts to administer severe, certain, and impantial justice. In one ve:r the change in our town has been radical, and the improvement decided. In another year we may reasonably hope for otiter im provements. Our churches and schools a vear since were unknown. Families were few, and sooiety scarce a credit to the ter ritory; but the events of a year have crowded innumerabie blessings upon our pathway, and the beneficent results of 1864 lead us tobope well for the future. In the aresat;ime, our citizens can only hope to improve society by assiduous lalbor --by the oultimation of kindly relations with each other-b7 the exercise of courage, kharity, and all acristian virtues; and to Jis labor they .are urgod, as well by selfish SBa hantae considerations. tMe .--Stting aside the anavoidabte litUe ackents dof asleigh-ride--euch to upsettiag, horses uaila, away, or frseing a tee, a sleib-ride on the .l stnow, to the merry tinkle of theuleigh-bells, -rt ,e.iy oae door plea.re a e ,. .a eujoy this i er.

Scorning the slow growth of the elder ni tions and outstripping even the swift pro gress of terrtiorial greatness, Montana, the Unknown of yesterday, springs forth the leader in the march of enterprise, and offers golden rewards to all the adventurers who throng by a hundred paths to behold her greatness. With a bountiful hand she fills the outstretched palm of thousands who bring no recommendation but industry and n3 qualification but the ability to labor. For a while, men listened incredulously to the news from this far country; but quick!y, certainty succeeded rumor, and surging through the passes of the Rock Mountains, like the spring flood of an ice bound river, the rushing torrent of emi gration spread itself over hill and vallley; while from each iron bound gorge, smiling vale, frowning precipice, and yawning canon arose the joyous cry Eureka! Scarccly has the echo of the first glad song of triumph died away, ere from every nook and corner of our country news comes, as on the wing of the wind, of new discov eries, eacePgreater than its predccassor, till even the California rangers and the sil ver miners of Novada, quit their new-found homes and throng every approach to our western Ophir. lore, whecre We write, in this enchanted city, the great gulch traversed by Alder creek for twenty-two miles, challenges re search, never yet fruitless. Though thou sands of miners have, in every conceivable method, delved and dug from one end to the other, yet years of labor will have pass ed ere it ceases to yield the rich harvest that has mrodo so many of the poor of the land wealthy and independent. Numbers of rich claims are almost untouched. An ticipating the ineviti.hle result of the con tinued industry of multitudes, aiture has pointed to the hill, that onelose it, and each day brings nes f quartz ludec discovered around and about it, on all sides. At the hiead of tills val.- of wonders, the General Butler, Oro Caohe, and Kearsrgee, among scores of others, contain treasuro'that in vites the lrIor of years. At Prickly Pear creek, silver lodes in dozen, are already dis covered, with many a crevice of gold.'n ore and th,, work is not yet i-l0 part completed. O)eor Lodge co'autv seems. acearding to alt r.liiable accounts a very Il Dorado. Veins of pure copper traverse the rocks, and the ai+tounding riches of Silver Bow creek are such, that it is our int.ntiowt to pub!ish soume of the assays, as a speciamen of the: hidden w'.alth awaiting development.- Down at Wiscons'n gulch, the prospect i. most encouraging, and near it are lodes of si'ler and gold in abund::znc. lattl~enante mountain, on the road to Ba'nack, has al ready interested the capitalists of N:.w York, and conmpanies are fornmed to bring to light its earth-pent treasures.

A few short vears of stern reality mouldered our dream-built castles and left not a wrWak behind: but to day, the sight of our eves assures us that it is no vision which we now behohl, but the realization of more than we ever con c.ivod. Our stery borders on the incredi ble, but it is nevcrthelhss true, and a year or two will unfold resources of which tieCd we have exhibited to view are but the germ.

A Trip to, lramd om Cty. All the best .eams d! Virginia and Ne vada cities were in harness to attend - sleighing party of pretty girls (and not a few there is-in Montana, especially in No. vadas) and their beaux, having in view a social dance at Brandon, on Mill creek, ai a finale,o a Tuesday last. Following the Spreasing invitatiox of a friend, we becam: one of the party (not beaux) for the so8h purpose of seeing the promising young tows of Brandon. Ensconced in innumerable wrappers yitl hot bricks (7) to our feet, and as lively and lIdylikc buudle of muslin as any mxortal might wish to be his share to sleigh ride with, by our side, we rode behind as fast - team as could be had. The weather which on starting was beautiful, turned extremely cold. Drawing our blankets closely around us, we whirled along over the crisp snow to the merry tinkling of a set of genuine sleighbells, (a luxury and a scarce article in Montana) and landed about 6 o'clock, after travellin~ 22 miles, it the Brandon City Hotel at Brandon. This new town was laid out last summer, and it is only three months ago, that tbh first building, a smail log cabin, was erect ed. But thi exceeding richness of the surrounding lodes was proven, and build inge sprang up as if by migic. At the present time, twenty-seven good, substan. tial log houses are erected, and many more in process of construction. The town is h"autifully situated at the mouth of the esnon formed by the egress of Mill creek, on a large platea:u, sheltered by low hills in every direction and therefore not exposed to the cold winds, to prevalent in Montana, it is drlcidedly as desirable a bite for a tonu as could be found within twenty miles of Virginia city. Two blacksmith shops and nen hotel, the Brandon City llouse, kept by our friend J. W. Paige, are at present the main commercial features of Brandon. A store, with a general assortment of mer chandize could drive a profitable trade het,. All trade now bas to be done in Virginia, which is rathr inconvenient, at least, dur ing the winter months. One quartz aill, owned by 1Mr. Ceisl:r, and driv.-u by water power, has done very well during t he fall, !it ,i frozen up for the winter, Auother, a 2t-'tamp mils is on the ground, ready to lie erected in the spring. It is owned by Mr. VanteLurgh.

But the party seemed to he fated not to have the pleasure of travelling to ther, for the driver cf the sleigh we were huaiiled u 'in, took a cut-o!f road after leaving l).uil's, which led us on the top of smountaon, where we obtained one of the most bk:tutifuI nnd picturesque muo.untatn viewj we could wish for. 0, if it bad o:lyv been summer! It is sa. that everything hanth an end, but our jbhu'a cut-off had not, for we were obqLi:d to retrace our road for six miltes anJ take to the rezuiar hithwav. This fou::d, we soon arrived at our home with out furthf.r incidents. So ended our first sleigh ride in Montana. We Lope it wont be the tlat. On our lonely couch we dreamed of crin oline and calico.

We intend to tell Worcester alout it. Too much praise canno bh bestowyd upon Mr Paige, th vo-ntlemanly host of the Brandon Iiouse f~r his exertions to pldase all and make every one comfortable. Some might complain of the crowded state of the house. To those we would sa~ that the landlord did not expect half the ,umber of guests from Virginia and Ne vadla that were in attendances or more room would bave been provided. Wa'ter Psivileges. One of the most vexatious and inexhaust ible sources of litigation is to be found in the conflicting interests of land owners and others, who seek to erect mills and to ob. tain water for irrigation and countless oth. er nepassasy purposes. Uip to this time, no such law has been reported as passed. We trust that the "Lgislaturc will not omit ap act so essential to the prosperity of thei cesutry. We are daily expecting tbh RmjNiioh veAbk t1f~d uias .o Mf ur4 surdsy lemese1.. a --tC W'e have teeeived a commtmication from Summit, ftim which it seems that .te good folks there have discovered that tthe Iiurdy. Gurdy houses were exerci:ing a most per a nicious inluence upon a large section of a tJe community, and, taking time by the r- forelock, they have determined to abate a the nuisance before pauperism becomes the ia rule in their city. Large numbers of the 1e population are men living by daily labor, s, who, not having the future before their :e eyes, spend all their earnings without a n thought of to-morrow, and too often add quarrdlling, violence and drunkenness to dancixp. We do not wonder at the resolu hl tion taken. There seems to be a desire to e run everything in the shape of amusements a beycnd all safe limits. Fortunately, these evils soon cure themselves; but they are d no preventative to others that rise like the r Pbcenix, from the ashes of the one which e his just expired. With the hardest part of q mountain winter before them, our own citisens would do well to lay up a store of something more tangible than pironettes, more Nutritious than the memory of V.r soviennes and more proftable than smiles and tickets as per agreement. Fsrom Prickly Pear. MONTANA CITr, January 7, 1965. EDITOR POST :-We have just returned from a visit to some of the thriving towns and mining camps in thls part of the country. At Jefferson city, we were kindly enter tained by Mr. Shehnan, whose hospitality is only equalled by his enterprise .:d1 un tiring endeavors to develope the vast mine ras resources of the vicinity in which he resides. Jefferson city is fist becoming a truly business place. "Many large and com tuodious storage and commission houses are compieted, nad others are being built.
