SThee are three things iequir.of si publae
srva it. The ftst is, ability'to perform'his
duties with advantage to his ~nstituents;
the second is honesty of purpose suikcient
to make his talents available to their fall
extent, and the third is firmness of will to
'do ihat which his judgment informs him is
necessary. We shall want a Delegate to
Congress. Lot us choose a man who, pos
-sessing the above qualifications, knows what
we want; who is able to tell with something
of oratorical ability what he knows; who
has the ear of those in whose hands is the
power of granting, our requests, and who
will pass muster among the notables with
whom he must associate./A Territorial
Auditer must be appointed. For this pur
pose an individual,.should be selected who
has learnt by experience what is fair and
errect in matters of account; who will be
honest to his trust, and who will consider
that no one citizen has a right to plunder all
the rest. Re should also be entirely disin
clined to make ambiguous transactions
appear correct and read smoothly. A
Treasurer is an indispensable employe, and
must be placed in otlce 0y the vote of the
people. In order that this important post
may be worthily occupied, a citizen should
bd elected who can be relied upon to receive
everything for the'peopie ; make no expendi
tore that is not properly authorized, and to
nccount to the last mill for the public funds
entrusted to his care. Any man who would
be likely to ue the territorial funds for pri
vate purposes is not a fit man-for this sitca
ti.n of trust. T'he Treasurer's salary or
fees should be his only emolument. An
other appointment of the highest importance
remains to be noticed. It is that of Super
intendent of Public Instruction. Whoever
is entrusted with the care of education
should himself be well educated, and that
not only in a popular sense, but technically.
A man may be a Maste" of Arts,and yet totally
ineligible for this position. No one is fit for
the place unless he is master of the most
approved systems of instruction, and thor
oughly acquainted with the almost innu
mcrable minutitm of the educational art.
The selection of books, advice in cases of
difficulty, care of the public school fund,
together with the regulation and general
supervision of the first and best interest of
a free country, must be given to no amateur.
Better have no head to this department than
appoint a theorist, or a smart man possess
ing neither the capability of mastering
detail, nor the inclination to patient labor.
IIo who would teach teachers and govern
schools should at least have a thorough
practical knowledge of his business. Ih this
ease, we most emphatically counsel the peo
ple of Montana to throw overboard all recol
lections of personal friendship, political
bias, or admiration of real or supposed
talent. Get the best man. If, in the judg
ment of the citizens, the present appointee
is inferior in qualification to any one in the
Territory, at once elect the better man in his
place. Whatever may betide politics or dol
lars and cents, sacrifice the interests' of edu
eation for no consideration whatever.
The county officers are District Attorney,
Probate Judge, County Clerk,Sheriff, County
Surveyor, Coroner, County Assessor, County
Treasurer, three County Commissioners, five
members of the Legislative Assembly and five
members of the House of Representatives.
Now the District Attorney should be a
sound lawyer, a good advocate, and a man
of patient temper, especially upright, and
bearing no itching palm. The oflice of Probate
.Judge requires a man of honesty, ability
as a lawyer, and of no violent bigotry. A
full development of the organ of causality
is necessary in a Probate Judge or, with the
beat intentions, he may be continually com
mitting injustice. The County Clerk should
be deoently educated, familiar with general
legal business, and satisfied with his legal
fees. The Sheriff ought, above all others,
to possess a calm temper, invincible deter
mination and scrupulous integrity. The
temptations to thieve and pervert justice for
private gain are perpetual and heavy in this
office; a large number seek it avowedly on
this account. The County Surveyor should
be thoroughly educated as a professional
man, versed in the details of his art, and
known to all as an official beyond the reach
of bribery. For many reasons, it is expedi
ent that a physician of general business
habits, and of recognized moral rectitude be
designated for Coroner. The County Asses
sor should intimately understand the value
of what he assesses, and know neither friends
sor enemies till his roll is made up. Of the
Treasurer's office we have before spoken.
The three County Commissioners should be
three men of tried.ability, honesty and inde
pendence. The most reliable citizens in the
Territory are the only persons for this posi
tion. The ought, of course, to be heavy tax
payevrs./F or members of the Legislature,
get sobce representatives, at any rate, and
about as decent men as can be found. if
there are any anxious for Legislative honors,
who will not sell their country for $106 or
less, let diligent search be made for them
they are the men. Jadging from past expe
rience, however, we should recommend that
the search be commenced early, for it will
require infinite exertion to get so many good
m.en, willing .o accept tie place. uominng
-a near to tdese qualifications as circum
stances will permit, lot our voters elect up
right citizens, without regard to place of
birth or habitation. If the candidates believe
that their country extends from the Lakes
to the Gulf, in one direction, and fromn the
Atlantic to the Pacific, in the other; that is
the poitical morality we stipulate for--a

Ilistory rehats self, says the adage.
The Government of Great Britain was for
years sibject to propositions for paying off
the National Debt. Of course they all fell
through, and so will these kindred aohem.s
in America. The increasing national pro.
perity, and the inevitable Southern develop
ment, will render the burden of taxation
extremely light. What seems insupportable
te.daypwill be methitg, tea yern heae.
These is another point of view in whio
to regard the national debt, and that is that
it isa sort of fly-wheel to the Constitution.
It steadies the motion of the whole machine.
Its amount makes it the controlling ainn
cial power. In times of peace and osnfi
deace, the Stocks (another name for the
different interest-bearing .loans) rise and
command a premium, when the commercial
or political horizon becomes clouded, the
reqerse is the case, and the. merchant and
stattesman, warned by this unfailing and
most sensitive public barometer, shorten
sail and are prepared for the storm. Without
the fluctuations in the stocks, the Govern
ment is in the dark as to the public feeling,
exactly when the information is needed.
Newspapers are excellent organs of party;
yet they are by no means equal to the stocks
as a test of public sentiment. In five min
utes, the rise or fall of the price of the dif
ferent securities will announce the effect of
important news.
kigaiu, in me Course of years, me ramin
cations of separate, combined and relative
interests in the stpoks embrace the whole
nation, and, either for himself, his employ
ers or his connections, every citizen of the
vrluable classes is aself-constituted warder
and guardian of the public tranquility. In
fact we really believe that in modern times
there is no real basis of security for any
people who have no national debt. This is
the mystic tie that binds whole races to keep
the peace, and for.our part we look upon it
as the golden regulator, stimulating the
enterprising, restraining the extravagant.and
calming the turbulent. It is the well con
structed anchor which holds the faster, the
heavier the strain. There would be no Great
Britain to-day, but for the national debt,
that converts every reliable man, and many
women, into unpaid police of the realm.
Excepting the foreign part of the owner
ship of the debt of the United States, which
is comparatively small, the payment of the
public indebtedness is a mere shifting of the
huge load from the broad and muscular back
of our giant Republic on to private saoul
ders. All the money, nominally tie up, is
really free for all necessary purposes. When
men want money, they sell out; when they
have no use for it, they invest. Practically
sneaking, a good sound national debt, if
wisely managed, the interest paid honestly
and with scrupulous punctuality, is nothing
more nor less than national salvation. In
times of trouble, every man flies to the rescue
of the state atthe sounding of the first note
of alarm by the fall of the stocks. No monied
man can afford to be a rebel. The more he
has the more loyal he becomes. The surest
way to the heart is through the pocket.
Had there been a good national debt, there
would have been no more fear of a rebellion
than of individual suicide, on the part of the
citizens of the South. Asaperpetual mem
orial of the cost of war, a national debt is
a standing argument for peace. It is enough
that we have fought the war; the hardships
and the sacrifices are ours. Let posterity,
that garner the harvest of blessings, con
tribute towards the payment of the expense
incurred in presenting to them peace, free
dom, and security.
know of no greater mental hallucination
than that which afflicts the majority of the
quartz finders and owners of lode property
in Montana. When a ledge is found, the
prospector gets his wall rock and then
records, leaving his lode almost as he found
it. The consequence will bethat capitalists
will not have anything to do with such ven
tures. A mere superficial prospecting will
neither encourage nor deceive any but the
class of individuals of whom it is said that
they and their money are soon parted, and
such characters are seldom great capitalists.
Instead of scampering over moun;ain and
plain for a number of discoveries, let a man
make one, two or three good ones, and sink
on them.' A fortune to the discoverer and
another for the capitalist is thus secured.
The other proceeding will only serve to
depreciate the value of our property in the
eyes of eastern men. The astounding rich
ness and marvellous number of quartz ledges
of Montana need only to be known to attract
a regular emigration of capitalists here.
But a few sales of undeveloped lodes will
be most injurious to our future interests.
As an instance of what a man may do w.o
knows his business, take Mr. Whitlatch, of
Edgerton county. He has set himself down
to the task of thoroughly developing his
lodes, preparatory to the arrval of the first
mill, and there lie the tons of quarts ready
for the operation of reducing. Such a sight
is a sermon to a mill owner, which he will
not neglect. Before long we expect to give
returns of the bullion extracted from the
Edgerton county lodes. There is a noble
prospect for any man who wishes to locate
a mill there. We shall from time to time
notice the development of mines in the
Territory, and iu the meantime we exhort
all, prospecters to use their legs less and
their picks more.
Loa~ING.-The miner's harvest is now
reaping; gulch claims, being cleared out,
are now yielding gold, and every man who
has a spark of manly independence, is earn
ing his bread. It behooves' all citizens to
do this; but there are a great many play
mg the loose fish about town, gambling for
whiskey and basking in the. sun, wish no
thought of to-morrow. Let these remember
that though it is now summer, it. will not be
long before the flliwg snow will render it
imperative that board ana lo4ging should
be provided, and that at a time whbnmoney
cannot be earned by mining or agriepltural
employment. Neithercan loafers ask for

The leralere Charlestoi correpondent
says, a delegation from South Carolina, to
Washington, whose arrival was announced
yesterday, will ask the early appointment of
a provisional Governor for that State. Their
first choice for this position is Ex-Governor
Aiken; the second, Gen. Garney, post com
mandant at Charleston.

Mr. Trenholm, had been arrested at Colum

in actual rogress. Wholesale merchants
were rapidly disposing of their stocks of
goods. Purehasers from the interior were
coming in, in large numbers: Heavy mor

Cha leston. It was said that more than 100
000 bales of cotton aidng the line of the rail
road botween Charleston and Columbia,
were awaiting the completion of the line, to
be forwarded to market.
Washington, June 20.
Judge Wm. F. Nording, and Fox, com
missioner for South Carolina, have arrived
'here from Charleston. They report that the
people of that city, notwithstanding the pre
sumed scarcity of money, have paid into the
United States Treasury, over *90,000 on ac
count of direct taxes, for which they were
in arrears.
Orders have been issuea, reuncing ine

and will at once be put out of commission.
All other vessels now in the squadron will

Among the applications for pardon to-day,
was that of Bishop Lynch, Catholic bishop
*of Charleston, noted heretofore for bitter
and most virulent opposition to the govern

drawn up and signed by Bishop Spaulding,
of Baltimore, and the Bishop of Buffalo.
The tone of the petition is exceedingly hum
ble and penitent.
New York, June 21.
A special to the Herald says, the quadran
gular fight for the provisional Governorship
of Alabama, between W. H. Smith, of Ran
dolph, Lewis E. Parsons, of Talledaga, D.
H. Benham, of Athens, and D. C. Humph
rey, of HIuntersville, Maryland, may prevent
the appointment of either. Hlumphrey has
the advantage of being chairman on the
committee on resolutions at the first Union
meeting in Alabama, held at Huntsville a
year ago last winter. Parsons appears to
have the largest number of backers, and his
appointment is confidently expected.
The Hon. Horace Maynard, of Tennessee,
is here in consultation with the President.
He is much talked of in connection with the
vacancy on the bench of the Supreme Court,
caused by the death of Judge Catron.
Judge Sharky, of Mississippi, Altaigen and
Speed are also mentioned in the same con

A Nashville dispatch to the G(Tzette says
Gen. Thomas has issued an order allowing
all persons sent north of the Ohio river to
remain during the war, to return, also abol
ishing the pass system over all railroads and
rivers in the department.
Gen. Wilson telegraphs the government
that he has issued to the poor of Atlanta,
during the last seven days, 100,000 lbs. of
meat and flour. The people in ten adjacent
counties are in a starving condition and re
lief must be extended to 30,000 people.
Washington, Jane 21.
Edmund Buffon, of Virginia, who fired
the first gun on Sumter, committed suicide
near Richmond, on Saturday last, by blow
ing his head off with a gun. A memoran
dum was found among his papers, says the
Richmond Republic, stating that he could
not live under the government of the United
States, and that he rather preferred death.
Philadelphia, June 21.
A special from Washington announces the
death of Mrs. Winm. H. Seward, wife of the
Secretarr of State.
New York, JuneZi.
Dr. Mackey, the well known Charleston
Unionist, announces that a delegation,
just arrived from that city, to confer with
the President on the subject of the employ
ment of the freedmen in South Carolina,
is composed entirely of original secession
ists and rebels. He regards their coming as
impudent, and as an insult to the United
Washington, June 21.
The Young Men's Christian Association
have purchased Ford's Theatre, paying
therefor $100,000.
New York, June 21.
Secretary Stanton's report of the opera
tions of his department for the last year of
the war is published, from which it appears
that there were forwarded to the field
489,626 soldiers, and mustered out and dis
charged, 268,114, and over 200 flags cap
tured from the rebels. There were 102,000
colored troo.s in the service.
The Herald's Charleston correspondent
says: The delegation from South Carolina,
which arrived in Washington yesterday,
hating instructions to represent to President
Johnson the expediency of establishing an
efficient plan whereby the relations between
the freedmen of the State and their empley
ers, with regard to labor and wages, ean be
satisfactorily arranged, profess a willingness
toward the freedmen that they may appro
,priate one half of their erops as a recom
pense for their labor, but unless they have a
guarantee that their labor shall be. contin
uous, it will be af no use to commence the
crops. Another idea is that if the late slavts
are allowed to cheose their employers and
occupations, they will inevitably select corn
planring as the easiest work, which .wil
cause a great decrease in the cotton and rice

Speech of the Hon. J. M. Ashley at
Salt Lake City, on she 4th of July.
Ladies and Gentlemen:-Nothing was
further from my thoughts when I came into
your city this morning at half past one
o'clock, than that 1 should meet such a large
concourse of my fellow-oitizens celebrating
the anniversary of my country's indepen
dence, and certainly nothing was further
from my thoughts when I came on the stand
than that I should be asked to say a single
By the politeness of the gentlemen in
charge of the celebration, I found at my
hotel your card of invitation, and this morn
ing as soon as I had had my breakfast, I was
waited upon by a gentleman with whom I
have met before, and with whom I was
acquainted as your delegate and representa
tive in Congress, and invited here, and I
must say, ladies and gentlemen, that I have
been delighted, and I feel as they say inthe
Methodist Church, that it is good for me to
be here. rfau.hter.1
I know something of you as a people. I
know something of your history in the
States; of your leaving the States and
coming over these vast, and then uninhabi
ted and unbroken plains, to consecrate your
lives to the ideas which you had espoused,
and that all along these trackless wabtes and
snowy mountains are the unmarked graves
of thousands of your people. I know that
you have descended to this valley, where it
was supposed civilisation could never come;
but 1 have evidences around me that you
have made it to bloom and blossom as the
rose. For this, I think the people of this
country should feel under great obligations
tn vnn.
You came to this Territory and to this
locality at a time when it belonged to the
sister Republic of Mexico, The war with
Mexico in 46 and '47 annexed you to the
United States; and for this demonstration
which 1 have witnessed to-day, in behalf of
the loyal people of the United States, I
thank you. Fbheers.1
Driven forth from Illinois and iissouri,
you sounlit a shelter and a home in a for
eign land; and after you had established
the foundations of what now bids fair to be
a mighty power, you became, bythe fortauies
of war, again attached to the United States,
and under its jurisdiction.
It affords me pleasure, ladies and gentle
men, to find you aonfoirmng to the new con
dition df things, and obeying as best you
may the laws tunder which you are bound to
live, and to hber uttered here, sentimsents
such as I have heard to-day; sentiments to
which qvery tOue American heart must say
amen. [Cheera..
Ot course, ladies and gentlemen, I didn't
come here to makq a Fourth of July oration.
I am a mere private citizen, coming out to
look at these vast Territories, of which I
have had the charge for the last six years
in the House of Representatives. - I am going
tu Montana, Idaho, Washington and down
to California; to Nevada and back through
your country here, and over, as I trust, the
new line to Denver in the Fall.
I hope in the meantime to become aoquain
te4 with your leading and distinguished ct
isens, as I hope to become with the leading
men of other Territories, that 1 may study,
know and understand your wants better
than fcould possibly understand them at a
distance, although must say you have been
faithfully and ably represented in the House
of Representatives by the three gentlemen
whom I har. met here this morning.
[Ohees.]. -
Then whatever may be our peculiar views,
let u subordinate them al now that peae
