D. W. TILTON & CO., Proprieterd. VIRGINIA CITY, M. T. --o Sturday, - - - - April lst, 1865. our New Suit et clothes. " Necessity knows no law," and the Post appears to-day in a dubiously colored suit which even the fond fancy of an Editor cannot recognize as the " pink" of perfec tion. Enough white paperf a year's con sumption has been long lying at Salt Lake, and will be forwarded as soon as a wagon wheel can turn on the road, leaving the hub clear. The Express Company will carry nothing but a few mail bags, the horrible state of the roads entirely precluding the transmission of freight. Till the advent of fair weather and passable roads, we shall endeavor to present this journal to our readers, in the best form possible, either on paper, shingles or (if we are wound up tight) the caudal appendage of an inside blouse. We will never say die while there's a shot in the locker. Still Onward Fleats the Flar. Still Onward Floats the Flag. Seldom in the annals of war has it been the duty of the historian to chronicle as brilliant a series of triumphs, in such rapid succession as we are able to present to our readers, in our telegraphic summary. Charleston, Wilmington, Augusta, Colum bia, Florence, Fort White and Georgetown are ours; Early's command is captured, and the General fled for life with the foemen in hot pursuit. The sun of Freedom shines out brightly. From ten thousand homes arise the songs of praise and the thank-offer ings of grateful hearts. We shall soon have Mobile, Petersburg and Richmond, but bet ter-far better-a solid and lasting peace. Speed the blissful tidings. There is a cloud gathering on the Mexi can frontier. The "Impire is peace," says Napoleon. Yes, " The torrent's smoothness ere it dash below." Not satisfied with sitting on a throne prop ped by bayonets, and being an object of hatred in the minds of all lovers of free dom, Louis Bonaparte wishes to introduce the element of strife among the peoples and rulers of the new world. He little knows what he is provoking. As chaff before the whirlwind, so will his cat's-paw, the pompous cadet of the House of HIapsburg, be driven from the insulted shore of Amer ica, just as soon as weightier matters are disposed of. It seems that the Union forces are jbeing held in hand, tobe slipped at any point where needed. Grant's men are on the qui rive and prepared to march at a moment's notice. He could throw his force on Lee's rear, in six hours, should he evac uate Richmond, to fight Sherman. As the game draws to a close, nothing but desper ate measures can be expected on the part of the Confederates. The only thing to be done is to maintain unceasing watchful ness and readiness to move anywhere and everywhere, at a moment's warning. This is the state of things at ,the present time. Where the storm will burst, who can tell ? The blue coats abide the shock. buch a tide of victory never surged on the Atlantic coast-yet it is but the first of flood. Wait for a few weeks, and then ! The simple and manly address of the President is before us. We make no com ment, but congratulate the American people that Abraham Lincoln fills so worthily the sea; of George Washingtou. Gruambling. It is the inalienable right of the Anglo Saxon race to grumble at everything, and when there is nothing to grumble about, they grumble at that. Having no idea that this organic peculiarity will ever be eradi cated, we merely venture a mild insinun tion that it would be as well to fix upon a fair subject, as an unfair one, when going into the business. We think that the mu nicipal taxation is no longer to be ranked in the former category; for licenses-the great theme of the growler-are reduced about one half, and are not really exces sive. Salaries are by no means the only channels of expenditure that drain corpo rate funds. Our streets require very con siderable repairs. Several culverts and small bridges have to be built, and very many small, but costly, pieces of work have to be executed, which the growlers are too busy to notice. The alignment and loca tion of the outer boundary of Virginia, as well as the survey of the eight blocks in the heart of the city, will take both labor and money ; while, literally, scores of other matters must be attended to, which will all cost money. As a subject for growling we would suggest the snow, the mud, (not the street repairers) the weather, and the In dians. Another list will be ready next week. Give the authorities a chance to do well at any rate. PLUvc.-On Tuesday last, we noticed Mrr J. H. Haines among a party of 9 men whose dilapidated garments, weatherbeaten faces and paoked loads, spoke of hardships and weary travel. We ascertained that the wayfarers originally started from Austin, to Salt Lake, en route for this place. At the City of the Saints, they obtained a horse and sleigh, which they were compel led to leave behind, at Deep Creek, one hundred miles on their road. Here they had to break a track through the snow, breast deep, for threedaysy returning every night to the same camp.g place. They pushed on, buying their proviajeon as lchance offered, at the differentranches, and arrived in Virginia after twenty-nine da-s' travel on foot. The brave fqeUows, deserve a fbftune as the reward of their inmdomita. S.le erseveradce. Lesal 1amo3valons. We cannot say we admire the working of the new statute forbidding the usual charge of the Judge to the jury, unless, written. The idea is good; but the practice is im possible, without a waste of time, in the preparation of the document, quite out of the questionin ordinary cases. The notion of making the judge a sort of judicial au tomaton, reading without comment, pur posely `adverse statements of the law, and omitting all sifting of the evidence, prac tically constitutes the jury,'judges of both law and fact; which entirely upsets all re ceived traditions of their functions. Counsel will always travel out of the record, in speaking to evidence, and much irrele vant matter is introduced in testimony, both of which evils are corrected by the sum ming up of the judge, and the case is thus reduced to a practical issue. As it stands, the whole thing is a mere travesty of that time-honored institution-trial by jury. Another most impolitic, unjust and inex pedient proviso in our wonderful statute., gives to the jury the power to affil the pen alty, and assess the fine forbreaches of the law. This totally destroys the very idea of a constitutional trial. The court for the law and the penalty-the jury to try the issue of fact raised-has from time im memorial been the common law and the well-tested ,rule of English and American jurisprudence. The functions of the judge and jury are now consolidated; the former office being so maimed and crippled that, for all useful purposes, an image of Justice without the darkened vision that emblematizes neutrality, might well take the place of the dispenser ofthe law. The authority of the United States Court is gone and its presiding officer degraded. No charge by the judge, and the penalty an nounced by the jtry is simply a return to primeval forms and miners' law, attended by an enormous waste of time and sacrifice of money, unknown to the rude but far more equitable judicature, of which it is but an unwieldy parody. Such legislation will not stand an hour before Congress. Its object ii tun annnveint District Court.---Chie Justice Hes mer Presiding. The trial 3f John Thorburn for shooting David D. Chamberlain, on Saturday the 11th inst., at Central City, occupied the Court from Friday till nine a. m. on Tues day. The case excited the greatest possible interest, and was honestly and fairly tried on the merits. The charge was man slaughter; to which the prisoner pleaded "not guilty." The facts as elicited by the testimony were briefly as follows: The deceased, who had been celebrating the 27th anniversary of his birthday, with his friends, took umbrage at some remarks of the defendant about some ladies passing through the muddy streets, and riding over to the defendant's house, commenced a vio lent altercation, using some most offensive expressions, three times forcibly enter ing the house, breaking the lock at the second attempt, with a Yick, and also as saulting the defendant, by laying hold of his beard, and striking him on tho mouth. Immediately after his third expulsion, the defendant, whq is a man of about sixty years of age, shot him with a revolver, in flicting a wound of which he died in about twenty hours. Messrs. Chumasero and Lovell prosecuted the suit with much fair ness and ability, on the part of the people. Messrs. Sanders, Thoroughman, Davis and Mayhew were retained for the defence. The first two gentlemen addressed the jury in terms of moving eloquence, on behalf of the defendant. After eleven hours patient deliberation, the jury returned a verdict of "not guilty." At the rendering of the verdict there was scarcely a dry eye in court; judge, counsel, defendant, jury and spectators displaying overwhelming emo tion. Under the circumstances, the verdict was unquestionably in accordance with the law and the evidence. The case is an awful warning to those who even casually indulge in strong drink. A noble and generous young gentleman, in the flower of manhood, suddenly brought to an untimely end, which all lament deeply-yet, alas ! how uselessly. THE PEOPLE VS. JOHNSON MONTGOOERY.-This case was merely a repetition of the evidence adduced on the former hearing, and resulted in the disagree ment oc the jury a second time. The prisoner was indicted as accessary to an assault committed by one Crabtree, on I. H. Hill, and5 legally, the case could not be sustained with such precl.lon as to satisfy the jurors. After some thirty hours deliberation they were discharged-agreement being impossible. AssON S. PorrEnR vs. HUGHES AxD) OTHERS.

In pursuance of the call published in the POST, this society met one week ago this evening, and permanently organized. The following gentlemen were elected officers: g President, W. F. Sanders. Secretary, Granville Stuart. Historian, Hon. H. L. Hosmer. 1 There will now be an opportunity for all our citizens to become members of this or ganization, and to contribute such facts as may be of interest to the present and future inhabitants of this country. It is proposed to have such contributions read at its meet ings, and when enough papers are contrib uted to fill a volume, to have its transactions published. It is for our people now to say whether they will preserve the early his h tory of Montana in an enduring form, so that after times may know the thrilling drama here enacted. The design is lauda ble, and every one is cordially invited to make contributions. Masonic Obituary Resolutioas.

The Memphis, which left Charleston bar on e the 21st, reports that the National flag floats n over the city, and all the forts in the harbor. e Gen. Gilmore's headquarters were es r tablished in the city. The forts, which remain in good condi f tion are of a most formidable character. ,t Two hundred pieces of artillery that were e spiked, but otherwise uninjured, fell into 0 our bands. S About 6,000 bales of cotton was burned D by the rebels before they left; but it is be lieved that large quantities of it, and also o tobacco, were concealed in the houses. F Just before the National troops entered the C city, the rebel rear guard were busy plun a dering and firing the houses. Few, but poor 1 inhabitants, remained in the city after its t abandonment.

He threatens every moment, to burst over the lines that intervene. The Senate are doing the conservative. Histo ry furnishes no parallel to this. New York, Feb. 28th. It seems by the Herald's Charleston cor respondent, that even in Secessia, a love for the old Union survived ali vicissitudes. The remaining inhabitants of the city man ifested the utmost delight at unfurling over them, the old flag. And when a smalibody of colored troops, who were the first to land in town, started up the principal street, their officers were scarcely able to proceed with them, being met with a perfect ova tion; men and women thronging the ave nues, shouting, waving handkerchiefs, cheering for the stars and stripes, President Lincoln and the Yankee army. The rebels destroyed much property by burning and explosion, before they left, but large amounts are found remaining in the city after the Union forces took posses sion, including, it is supposed, about ten thousand bales of cotton; a large quantity of rice and over two hundred pieces of ar tillery. Immense supplies of ammunition were in the forts. It also appears a similar welcome was ex tended to Gen. Terry's command when they marched into Wilmington. The old flags which had long been hidden away were brought out and given to the breeze, amid cheers, waving of handkerchiefs, etc. Crowds lined their route of march, and shouts filled the air. The entire Union losses, both killed and wounded in all op erations on Cape Fear River, succeeding the occupation of Fort Fisher, to the occu pation of Wilmington, will not exceed 200 Washington, March 1. The following telegram from Gen. Gil more has been transmitted to this Depart ment: Headquarters, Department of the South, Charleston, February 26th. An in spection of the rebel defenses of Charleston shows that we have taken over 450 pieces of ordnance, being more than double what I first reported. This includes eight and ten-inch Columbiads, a great many 32 and 42 pounders, some seven inch Brook's rifled and many pieces of foreign make. We also captured eight locomotives and a great number of passenger and platform cars and all in good condition. Deserters report that the last of Hardee's army was to have crossed the Santee river yesterday, bound for Charlotte, N. C., and that it was found that Sherman had already intercepted their march. It was reported on similar author ity that the last of Hood's army, 12,000 strong, passed through Augusta, last Sun day, on the way to Beauregard. George town has been evacuated and is in our pos session. Deserters are coming in constantly and we have over 400 already. (Signed) GILMORE. (Signed) " GILMORE. Washington, March 5th. The following despatches in relation to the reported capture and defeat of General Early by Sheridan and the capture of Char lottsville has been received by this depart ment: Sheridan and his force commenced their movement on last Monday and were at Staunton when last heard from.

The sehboner Jane'Dorah, reported as lost off the month of the Rio Grande, has arrived safely inside the bar. The latest news from Matmoras is, that the American flag was hauled down by some unknown party. The Times is informed that the assigned reason for Maximilian delivering his pass ports to our Consul, at Matamoras, is the non-recognition of the French-Austrian au thorities in Mexico by our government. The Times' Bagdad correspondent says: It is reported that Gens Cavarajal and Cor tinas are marching~ on Matamoras, where Mejia with 4,000 .mperial troops awaits their attack. St. Louis, March 5th. The New Orleans Bee of the 26th, pub lishes a private letter from Matamoras, Jan. 20th, stating that up to this time the Mexi can and Confederate authorities had been simply polite and friendly, Generals Mejia and Slaughter having crossed the river in civil dress and dined with each other yes terday. Gen. Mejia and staff, in full uni form, entered Brownsville, where General Slaughter awaited the visit with his whole command, under arms, and gave the visit ors an artillery salute of twenty one guns ; after dinner the Confederate flag was raised. The Mexican General and the staff removed their caps and saluted the former, making a speech, in which he said the Confederacy would soon be recognized, and coneluded by inviting the Confederates to a grand banquet at Matamoras, promising to salute their flag with twenty-one guns. The im portance of this affair consists mainly in the fact that Gen. Mejia is commander-in chief of the Mexican armies, and is there fore the next personage to the Emperor. Gen. A. J.

The demon stration was a perfect success throughout, and the procession the most imposing ever witnessed here. The military and fire de partments both turned out strong. The procession was about three hours in passmng a given point, and the crowd in the streets was probably the greatest ever seen in New York. New York, Feb. 27. The Raleigh Progress says: After the evacuation of Charleston, the forces fell back to Monk's Corner thirty miles this side of Charleston. Headquarters were at Kingston. The evacuation of the city was a strategic movement. It was not the result of any present inability to hold it. The Charlotte, N. C. Democrat, has a rumor of a fight that took place between Ridgway and Columbia last Sunday, in which the Yankees were driven back. The same paper says : It is reported that Gen. D. H. Hill or Gen. Cheatham attacked the enemy in the rear, on Thursday or Friday, and captured 800 wagons and a number of prisoners. Washington, 5. The following contains some of the most The following contains some of the most important features of the tax bill, as pass ed by both houses of Congress: On all incomes exceeding $600, a tax of five per cent.; on all over $5,000, ten per cent. The tax on cigars is fixed at $10 per thousand, without regard to price or quali ty, instead of so much per pound; on all tobacco manufactured purely from leaf, 40 cents per pound : on 'smoking, 40 cents ; and on tobacco xsanufactured.from stems &c., 25 cents per poend. After July '66, there is levied a tax of ten per cent. on all State bank circulation, and from the first of May next savings banks are taxed one half of one per cent. on their deposits. On petro leum the tax is finally fixed at $1 per barrel of 30 gallons. No drawback is allowed, whatever, when petroleum is exported, as in the 94th section of the old revenue law. An increase of 20 per cent. is levied on every article of the schedule named therein,, This includes all kinds of manufactures, and the old law, with this 20 per cent. ad ded, will be the new standard of taxation. The stamp act -is so amended as to make every written agreement void without its proper stamp. New York, Feb. 27. One hundred deserters a day are coming into Grant's lines. Every fresh squad re ports the evacuation of Richmond and Pe tersburg, as decided upon. New York, March 6. Gen. Coach is in command at Wilming ton.

Two at tempts to move the men were made, and it is thought the third attempt will result in open mutiny. The rebel papers all declare that Grant and Sherman are to be beaten in detail. Forrest is to turn up and do something im portant. There was a loose rumor flost among the rebels that a force had struck Sherman's rear, and taken many prisoners. D. H.

Mr. Willard, by Colonel Chivington, onbehalf of himself and some others. There is an account of the burn ing of Julesburg, received on the 14th. The savages also burned and destroyed everything on the road, as far as Valley Station. There seems to be a clear cast of "Moonlight on the brain" in the same col umn. We have had not only an attack of "Moonlight on the brain," but "Chivington of the heart," and don't want to be cured. Eastern Correspondence. PuIILADELP$IA, Continental Hotel, January 6th, 1865. EDITOR POST :-If you don't send me your paper I shall take it as mighty unkind. We miners all stop at the St. Nicholas, the best hotel in New York. A great many of your old acquaintances are there. The Delegate for Montana, left for Washington on the 4th ult. Judge Tufts and Davis left New York for home, on the 28th of December. They will return on the 10th, when the Montana boys will have a meeting. Don't think that champagne will suffer on that oc casion-of course not. Leroy Southmayde, G. F. Simpson, Capt. (brother) Conrey, John Merry, Drs. Eaton and Hopkins, Ned Purple, Cisty, and a host of others are all either in New York or at home on a visit for a few days. Tom C. is here with me on a visit, likewise. We are getting some dust coined, and I will inform you just what it turns out per ounce. I had twenty onnees assayed and coined in New York, and I will give you the statement for the benefit of miners : Twenty and a half ounces weighed after melting, 20.18 ounces. Value of the gold, 8352 07; fineness 844. Internal Revenue tax, $1 78. Parting and coinage, $2 77. Gold coin, $349 30. Silver coin, $3 88. You see by this return that the loss was but small. Capt. Southmayde says mine was better than his. It was very clean. It don't pay to carry black sand 3,000 miles. Philadelphia is a fine city ; but it does not compare with New York in point of business, or otherwise. Perhaps the Mon tana men stopping at New York helps my estimate in favor of that city. Mrs. "Con tinental" comes near beating " Sib," on slapjacks-all sorts of fixins mighty nice for a mountain man, especielly some stuff called Frenchy--" you bet you" (a phrase obsolete out hern.. oosolete out here). Among the distinguished folks arriving are Farragut, Hon. W. H. Seward, S. P. Chase and others. They look like "any other man." I saw Governor Evans of Col orado afew days since. The old gentleman wanted me tv" take action" on lode claims in Colorado-that is-he wanted to tell Congress how to tax the gross proceeds. Judge Johnson of Colorado, of the firm of Johnson & Teller. said he was in favor of letting Congress alone. This was a Colorado meeting,and there were some forty from that Territory. Tom and myself were the only two from Montana, and we kept ourmouths shut, which, under the circumstances, we thought wise; at any rate, more would be thought so, if they followed our example on like occasions. I have my own opinion of the Governor's wisdom, but refrain from making it public. At the Montana meeting we intend to show you, as Bob says, " some tings." Montana property in New York is bully. Of course, it must be proven genuine by as many reliable people as possible, 'ertifi cates from mill-men, recorders, &o., duly attested. The climate here is rather obnoxious to mountain men, who are not used to rain in January. It is one day rain, the next snow and-al:out twice in sixty daye-sunshine. About the war, everybody say's it is com ing to a focus; but gold is at 225. Oh! consistency, thou art a big nagget Gold has been up to 233, on one occasion. I have known it to fluctuate ten cents in ten minutes. Some make money in thousands every day. A friend of mine who sold gold two weeks ago at 216, lost some four or five thousands by it; but, if it don't fall, he'is on the stand for a raise now. The theatres are full every night at New York; here it is not so. We went last night to a circus, the first thing of the kind I have seen for ten years. The riding-and trained horses were beautiful, but the elown was very poor. I saw Booth play Hamlet in New York. It was the best thing Ihave seen.
