M.ti..--'The Overland coach came in on Friday
morning with a light mail. It left Salt Lake City
Feb. 17th road Fort Hall the 27th. Twenty days is
slow traveling, but con-idering the state of the
roads, grat. credit is due to the energetic division
:agats. for their perseverance in overcoming the;
difficulties in the shape of snow drifts, a feat ac.
couplished as yet by no conveyance except the mai'
coach.
Flu. oP ..e.--On Wednesday, as Mr. Collins
was engaged ini hauling piling from the ride hill,
in Pine (irove District, he was swept into the gulch

on him. On the same unlucky day, a man, whose
name we have not learnt, having bought a yoke of
cattle in tlighland District proceeded to fetch them
koce,' but missing the road he drove them into a
prospect hole andboth were killed. Good prospect
for Beef, on that day, but bad look out for cattle.
EaRATA.--I; the song written by Mr. Nat. Stein,
and published on our first page, entitled-" The big

is l4ft oat.; in the third v6rs'e at the enSae, third

MONTANA THEATRi.-On Saturday, the company
repeated " Nick of the Woods" and the "Jaco
bite." As the "Jibbonainosay," Collins played
with more force and justness of style than in any
piece Livming the season. The acting all round was
a marked improvement on the preceding perform
ance. Ohlhausen's Col. Bruce was a considerable
advance on. his usual role. Miss Emma Perkin's
benefit was on Monday; and despite the very un
propitious weather drew a good house. The piece
selected was the "Marble Heart," Miss Perkins play
ing " Marco," Collins "Raphael," Martin " Diogo
ne." and "Volage." "Clementine," ' Mariette"
and " Marie " were given very nicely by Miss Ken
dall, Mrs. Caven and Miss Woods. Mr. Martin's'
performance of Volage was really very fine, and
gave promise of future eminence in his profession.
The characters of "Raphael " and " Marco " are
perhaps as difficult as any yet written. Collins and
Miss Perkins exerted themselves to the utmost in
their delineation. Mrs. Caven's benefit on Thurs
day evening was decidedly the most successful per
formance and the largest house of the season.
"Jack Sheppard " was produced with a smoothness
and general excellence of conception that insured
it the success it obtained. Mrs. Caven leaving her
usual line played "Jack Sheppard," most success
fully and was welcomed by the audience, when led
before the curtain by Mr. Collins (Jonathan Wild)
at the close of the piece, with a genuine burst of
enthusiasm. As Sarah Blunt in "Poor Pilli
coddy," and in herdance with Miss Kendall she was
equally successful. Miss Kendall deserved an equal
share of praise for this latter performance which
was loudly encored. This lady did well as Mrs.
Wood and Edgeworth Bees. Lon McCarthy (Blue
skin) played admirably. At the close of the piece
he received the compliments of the audience as did
John Jack, (Owen Wood,) and Norwood, (Mendez.)
Martin (Sir Boland Trenchard) was loudly called, but
the exigencies of his profession prevented his re
ceiving his due honor. Miss Woods (Wianifred
Wood and Poll Maggott) rendered her parts with
good taste and judgment and Miss Perkins has sel
dom equalled her execution of the part of " Mrs.
O'Scuttle," in the farce. Mr. Miller's " Kneebone"
and " O'8cuttle,'' in " Pillicoddy" were very aptly
Illustrated; and Master Hosmer as "Thames Dar
rell earned'great credit. The audiencewereingood
humor and all went well.
G1RAND dASQUKRADE BALL.-This reunion
came off at Parker's Hall, and was a very
brilliant and sncoebsful affair. A good
supper at the Star Restnurant was a part
of the programme, and daylight came very
near surprising the party. There were
many very excellent impersonations of
character, which deserve a more particular
notice than our spaoe permits. Mrs. H.'s
costume, as the Goddess of Liberty carry
ing the National Flag, was certainly the
best conceived and exzeuted in the room.
We also nQtiecd Mrs. F. and Mrs. S---I,
in the traditional dresses of the Daughter
of the Regiment and Pocahontas. The
characters were equally well sustained and
tasteful. Mrs. S. and Mrs. U. were ele
gently attired as talian ladiej--the Daugh
rr.oT St. Marl and the Pne of Naples.

correct representatives of their proto
types. Prof. D. introduced an allegorical
character," Quarts on the Brain ' Oreating
much merriment. 0. D. S. was a Carthu

(well sustained); J. M. C. a Priest; J. A.
S', Uncle Snow, (very good) ; W. T., Italian
Cavalier; McS., Captain of Artillery; C.

Dr. J., Messrs. S-t, D-s, G--i, and H-el,
sailors; Master H.) Julian St. Pierre. All
was as bright as the "Young May Morn."
A PoOa Frenchman being atiodsed from
sleep by his wife with the cry, " Get up,
Baptiste, there's a robber in the house,"
calmly replied, "Don't let us molest him.
Let him ransack the house, and if he should fe
find anything of value, we'll take it away
from him."
WHAT is the principal difference between
the swallow and the cat? It is admitted
fact that "one swallow does not make a
summer," but any cat can make a spring.

The market for geeral merchannise and produce
continues very quiet and dull without material va
rition from reious quotations.
h.e .Xtrebº lightaess of the money market re
tarding almost all speculative operations, and the
continued extreme celd weather and deep snows de
barring the miners from all mining operations, and
as ther amount of "Dst " on hand has been re
duced to a very lihited extent, their wants in the
market outside of the actual neceesltia are very
small.
