THE SCARCITY OF GOLD IN THE l EAST. t We are informed that the long continued b drain of bullion, caused by the war, dimin ished the amount of specie in circulation to a $40,000,000. Whether this really is so or I not, it is certain that the amount in hand is I altogether short of the sum required to meet t the national expenditure. In such a crisis it is useless to inquire how this has arisen. 1 The only way to act is to develop the gold producing power of the mining regions. Other Territories can truthfully and forci bly tell their own tales, and will doubtless do so; our business is to inform the Gov , _-- - " enough to supply" any defciency that mfayv occur, and not only that, but to make gold and silver plentiful throughout the Union. The only thing required is machinery. Let private enterprise be stimulated by a fair official report of the thousands of gold bear ing lodes within our borders, and let there be an offer of a guard sufficiently strong to render the transit of the necessary freight perfectly secure, and we feel sure that Americans are not so lacking in foresight and judgment as to let the unparalleled op portunity of acquiring millions, now pre sented, slip from their grasp. It might be good policy to offer some inducements to capitalists to bring mills hither, and little would be needed to that end, for the reports of the first successes would attract hundreds more, as quickly as transportation could be furnished. Silver ore of great richness and in enormous quantity is to be found in almost every section of Montana, and it seems a pity that, with gold and silver lying ready for saving, in untold millions, any scarcity should be felt in the United States. One thing lies in the power of Government, and that is to offer a large reward for the best description of apparatus for saving gold and silver. Crushers, amalgamators, and furnaces for desulphurizing, etc.,. are most needed, and the English process of reducing argentiferous galena and the nu merous ores in which lead and silver are found combined, should be made known and experimentally proved, on the ground. Coal abounds in our Territory in many places, especially on the Missc i. There in a fine bed of anthracite at Boulder, and at Sum mit there is a splendid deposit of the bitu minous variety. That there is any required quantity in numerous localities, distributed throughout the country, its geological for mation plainly demonstrates; so that in ad dition to wood, which is plentiful, the matrix of commercial prosperity is to be found for the seeking. It is not our purpose to indulge in gas conade. What we write is simple, unvar nished truth, and we say to the financiers of the East, if you want gold, come and get it; for, we have found it. There is enough of genuine auriferous and argentiferous quartz around Virginia City to employ in the manufacture of machinery for its re duction the mechanical resources of the entire Eastern States for years, and this is all we need. We plead the late President Lincoln's promise to develop our country, and we will guarantee a return for the for tunate men who come hither with their mills, such as has not been heard of in modern days. SPECULATION IN GULCH MINING. CLAIMS. Any custom or law which permits specu lators to hold gulch claims without working them, is a robbery of the community, and such a state of things has always been fol- i lowed by serious injury to the best interests , of all the localities in which it has been per- t mitted. The Blackfoot diggings and some other places are now held mainly in this manner, to the detriment of the public interest. Congress has taken efficient action with regard to parties so meddling with the pub- ( lic lands, and we hope that at the approach ing session of our Legislature, a stop will be at once put to this most pernicious prac tice. The only true representation of a gulch claim is a pick or shovel, with a man be hind it. When this is not seen, the claim should be open to all comers, by laf. Jump ing we are opposed to; but the Legislature 1 should enact that no man can hold a claim I that he does not work, sickness alone being 1 accepted as an eicuse for idleness. A free circulation of money is the great commer cial desideratum in all countries, and more especially in newly settled mining regions, needing development. Speculators holding unproductive claims effectually prevent this, and they should, therefore, like all other monopolists, be regarded as a public nui sance, and treated accordingly. Oswnsucrzo Tax PUBLnc Rowes.-We near conDBinS cuzujiw-i- %- rIJ ` - cing acress public roads, and thus for cing travellers to make a long detour, in order to avoid the obstruction. Such con duct is illegal. No man can, under the Common Law, shut up a road, and no length of illegal usurpation can bar the pablic right to journey over ground which hai ever been used as a path or highway. If a man were to build a house across a road disused for twenty years, any person might ride through the hall ant. break through the wall on tho opposite side.

The Democratic Territorial Convention met on Monday ; organized (?)and adjourned till the first Monday in August. The scene a was not edifying-indeed, the leaders of the C party are thoroughly ashamed of the temper and tone of the proceedings. An adjourn ment was a sort of necessity; for the quar reling and interchange of hard words and threats had arrived at such a pitch that de liberation was impossible. We have heard but one opinion on the subject expressed by Democrats, and that is that it was a public scandal. We have nothing harder to say than the party have said of themselves. We had hoped that a removal of the caaus belli would have ended the war, and that all talk about "long heeled abolitionists," etc., was forgotten; but we find that the rancor remains, where the power to do harm is, for tunately, wanting. As we are sure, from conversation with many of that political persuasion, that any Democrats deserving the name feel precisely as we do, concerning the language, demeanor and animus of the "happy family," on Monday, we would sug gest that all good citizens should meet and agree upon the nomination of a man that will really represent this Territory in Con gress. When fighting has ceased in the 'ubogreseional' delegate ought'tb'fTvA political feelings in the discharge of duties which have no political bearing whatever. We cannot help thinking that the perception of the fact that there was no ground for political strife, was the cause of the dis graceful conduct of the parties in the Con vention whose acts and language all con demn. There being no fight on hand, they were out of their element, and seeing no enemies, they at once pitched into their friends. From such friends, co-workers or allies, good Lord deliver us. thankful to Almighty God for the peace and unity which we enjoy, that we call the pub- t lie attention to the welcome duty and ever k glorious privilege of celebrating the anni versary of the National Independence. For a time, the dark and lowering clouds of war obscured the Wlospect; now the sun of peace I shines out, and Freedom walks unshackled t through the land. No miserable fragments t of a dead nationality flutter in ragged and 4 ridiculous pomp among us. No! Our motto, i "E pluribus unum," is once more signifi cant. Americans will now know how to value the privileges for which so many have laid down their lives, and enshrined in the hearts of the people, the Union, disenthralled and redeemed by the resistless valor of her warrior children, and purified by the fiery ordeal through which she has passed, shall i stand as the haven of refuge to the oppressed of all nations-the freest, the fairest, the noblest, and the dearest land that ever inspired the song of the bard, or awakened the love of the patriot, since the light of the I first morning gilded the bowers of Paradise. i INDIAN TROUBLES ON THE MISSOURI.-We have read the report of John H. Morgan to Governor Edgerton, and also a letter from II. II. Harding. In both these documents, the conviction is forcibly expressed, that if more men are not sent to Benton and parts adjacent, the first news that we shall receive will be the account of a bloody and destruc tive raid on our settlements, and an attack on our line of communication with the East. Inquiries are daily made as to when the promised troops may be expected, and we are sorry that we cannot answer them sat isfactorily. They are coming, we know; hut the precise location of the force, at pre sent, we are not able to specify. We think it is high time that some practical move in the military line should be made, or, when too late, we shall rue the delay. Thhn Fnnrtl of July in Virrinia. MARSHAL'S PROGRAMME.

A destructive fire occurred here at one o'clock this morning, raging till five o'clock. About half the principal business block in the town was destroyed. The fire was no doubt the work of an incendiary. Thirty buildings were destroyed. Loss $125,000. Insured for $50,000. St. Louis, June 14. Judges Bayer and Dryden, of the Su- 1 preme Court of this State, having declined to vacate the Bench, in conformity with the ordinance passed by the late State Conven tion, Governor Fletcher, to-day, through General Coleman, commanding the militia in this District, forcibly dispossessed them of their seats, and installed his appointees. The affair created considerable excitement. Reports from various parts of the South represent the people as being thoroughly weaned from Jeff. Davis. They regard his execution as a foregone conclusion, and acquiesce in it. New York, June 16. General Turner has been assigned to the military district of Henry county, embra cing Richmond. His first act was to squelch the rebel Mayor, who had been reinstated. New York, June 15. The World's Washington special says: The final dissolution of the 20th army corps took place to-day. A complete history of its organization was filed in the War Depart ment. Twenty-two regiments were mus tered out from this corps in one day. The 15th is the last day on which all Ma jor-Generals and Brigadier-Generals, who are without commands, or not on detached service, can remain with that rank in the army. Butler and Banks go out of the ser vice under this order. It is thought that no more testimony will be taken by the conspiracy court. Ne x York, June IS. The Tribune's special says: By arrange ment aming thLe counsel, tne argpument or b Reverdy Johnson as to the jurisdiction of the court, is to be had on Friday. This P' will be followed by the argument of Mr. W Stone, counsel for Dr. Mudd and Harrold. On Saturday, Mr. Cox will present the de- a fense of O'Laughlin. On Monday, Mr. ni Aiken will sum up, finally, on behalf of Mrs. Surratt. On Tuesday,Payne and Atzerot's counsel present their arguments. On Wednesday, Mr. Ewing sums up in behalf of Mudd, Spangler and Harrold. ei It is believed that Judge-Advocate Gen- A eral Holt will present his final argument on t behalf of the prosecution on the 24th inst., D and on the Monday following the commis sion will conclude its work by finding and "o sentencing. The sentence cannot, under rule, be pro mulgated until after it has been approved by the President, so that the end of the trial may not be reached before the Jst of July. The Tribune's special says that petitions for pardon from the leading men of the late rebellion, are coming in by hundreds every A day. t Among the meln of note whose petitions li were received to-day, are Major-General Ed. Johnson and Jos. R. Anderson of the Tred egar Iron works. A clause is now inserted in the pardon d proclamation, which is intended to prevent applicants from claiming, in courts, exemp- li tion from tbe operation of the confiscation act, thus leaving the settlement of the mat- c ter of the confiscation of rebel property to v court and Congress hereafter, where facts a are such as to call for relief. r New York, June 15 Tha cnlored men complain of outrage and nnnraflain ng.., ikrr mIUr r... o 1.o£ nal_ leck, Patrick and Ord the Rebel Mayor. A deputation arrived this day in Washington to see the President on the subject. The colored Cavalry brigade belonging to the 25th Corps mutinied at Fort Monroe when ordered to Texas. They threatened to ire on the artillery sent to subdue them. The Major in command played a ruse on thm and getting them ashore by twos and threes under the guns of his men disarmed and returned them. The result5is only a lit le delay. The Southern Land holders wish to en courage European emigration in order that a white population may replace the negroes thus giving political power. The health of Fred Seward and the Sec retary is wonderfully good, the latter at Lends to business and converses cheerfully; but his chin is still supported by an iron rame. New York, 16.

P A Washington special says : Thirty- our warrants for pardon were issued to-day by h the Secretary of State. Alltheparties were r citizens of North Carolina-none of them of note. The pardons were given upon the suggestion of Gov. Holden. The President gives the preference to persons in humble positions in the matter or hearing petitions for pardon, and has determined to hold under advisement for the present all appli cations from men of distinction. The Pres ident likewise has directed that petitions for pardon be referred especially to the Gov ernors of the several States where the appli cants reside, so that the best evidence can be obtained as to the merits or demerits of the petitioners. Also that the Governors in 2 each case recommend such action as to them t( may seem just and proper. Col. Cooper Gibbs, in command of the post at Andersonville, is here on parole. Capt. Henry Wierse, who had control of b that terrible prison pen, is also here in con- n finement, awaiting his trial for murdering t: our prisoners. The Judge Advocate has tl already been assigned, and is now preparing it the testimony. Col. Gibbs states that one of the modes of sl procuring funds for the rebellion was to ti obtain ali the greenbacks in the possession a of Union prisoners, and pay for them at the n rate of four hundred and fifty dollars in a Confederate money to one dollar. Hon. Caleb Lyon, governor of Idaho, is now here. It is confidently expected that the army t1 will be reduced to 100,000 men by the new year. President Johnson is known to favor retrenchment as a means of returning to specie payment, which he will recommend g to Congress. Additional per steamer China with dates to May 7th, states that the American Minis ters at Pekin and Japan are returning home The cause not stated. The news of Kirby Smith's surrender is hailed with satisfaction, and is looked upon r as conclusive evidence of the termination of a the war. The Army and Navy Gazette, referring to the surrender of tho last Confederate General, says : By this event the Federal troops have been brought face to face with the French outposts on the Rio Grande. The same paper denounces what it terms the blood-thirsty designs of President Johnson, but thinks he will shrink from the horrid proscription which he threatens to carry out, when lists of Southern men are made out. The punishment of the Southern leaders is already terrible enough, with failure, ruin and exile. The proclamation of President Johnson, removing the restrictions on trade with the South, is published in the official Gazette. W. II. Russell goes out in the Great East ern to write an account of the laying of the Atlantic Cable. The work will be illus trated by Robert Dudley, and published by Day & Son, London. C. W.

Mr. Sunday is passenger on board the steamer Asia, en route for Hart's Continent, Newfoundland, to get all re dy at that point for laying the cable. St. Louis, June 20. All the business portion of Rolla, Mo., was burned last night. The loss is estima ted at two hundred thousand dollars-but little insurance" Liverpool, June 9. Lord Palmerston tendered a pension of £1,500 to Mrs. Cobden, who gratefully declined. There were fifty wrecks, aid much loss of life, from a storm in the Baltic.

IIELENA, June 21, 1865. ED. POST:-At 0. D. Keep's claim, No. 2 above discovery, in Nelson gulch, they took out the largest nugget which has yet been found in this part of the country, as far as I can ascertain. It weighed $107. The claim is situated not far from the Sho ber lead, which is probably the father of the nugget. Nuggaets of about $90 have been taken out of Grizzly gulch in time past,but this I believe to be the first nugget taken out in these parts that weighed over $100. This afternoon we had a very smart hail storm. It was not of long continuance, but the stones were of good size, many of them as large as cherries. The pattering of such missiles on man and beast was not very pleas ant. A few of the stones fell on me as I was riding in the street, and I considered them quite decent snow balls. The size of the hail has been remarked by several to be the largest they have seen in the Territory. Yours, truly, GLEANER. Mr. LINCOLN'S FAMILY.-M1r. Lincoln's grandfather, also named Abraham Lincoln. was murdered by an Indian in 1774, while at work on his farm near the Kentucky river. He left three sons, the eldest of whom, Thomas, was the father of the President. Thomas married in 1800, Nancy Hanks, a native of Virginia, and settled in Harden county, where the President was born, Feb ruary 12th. 1809. In 1816, the family re moved to Indiana. The great-grandfather of the President emigrated from Berks coun ty Pennsylvania, to Rockinrham county, in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, about 1750. PnoTOGRAPrY.-The commercial travelers in England have now seized upon photo graphy, and pressed it into their service. On one side of a card is the usual notice about "our Mr. - will have the pleasure of .calling upon you, etc." and, on the other, the photographic fac-simile of Mr. - him self, samples in hand. The idea might be advantageously carried out as regards col lectors of accounts, so as to prevent the wrong "parties" calling for tradesmen's lit tle bills. LETTER LIST.
