BErITY- TI DISTE.SS.--On Wednesday night, the
ceauty of the weather tempted us to sit awhile in
,a,,oonlighit. Gently stealing over our ravished
.:.ecame the sweet silvery voice of one of our
ydv fri ,ls., singing "Oft in the Stilly Night."
Ri in t with the intention of ascertaining the exact
iccati.n of the fair Cauntatrice. we were startled
tv the cry o: m-u-r-d-e-r, m-u-r-d-e-r. Under a full
ead," -team, off we started at toll speed. Having
red as nrar the afflicted one as the crowd per
tted we perceived an unfortunate Cyprian sitting
the floor and retailing a story of assault and bat
r, connmitted upon her by a feminine neighbor.
eattitule of the outraged one was entirely un
aTctal. 11er dress was not much heavier than that
cf aSionx Prince-s, when bathing, and she was sur
roundel v by an atmosphere pungently suggestive of
the evaporation of the Hibernian "Elixir vitae."
Bodily injury not being perceptible, we retired; the
crowd indulging in an unlimited use of the privelege
,f free speech. The police judge might well har
row the root- of his hair, when pondlring over the
.utirnony.
Joal 1Iow's new stock of merchandise, consists
of everything to be found in a first class assortment
i!f groceries, dry goods, saddlery, shoemakers' find
5ags. and last, but not least, a reinforcement of the
mlae old Bourbon. These articles, which completely
ll his great store, were brought in his first train,
shich will soon he followed by another, now on the
road from Benton. The familiar faces of Captain
r;well and "Ike" are to be seen through vistas of
loxs., barrels and packages. Col. Deimling is also
ýn hand. and the three gentlemen are ready to admin
ater to the want, of the citizens in their line. The
curious will be satisfied by the appearance in our
n'xt week's issue of John How's new advertisement.
We see that a new fire-proof warehouse is com
meonced behind the store. This will be both an addi
tion and an improvement.
NEW QUARTZ DISTRICT.-M. R. Denning called
apet us last week, and informed us of the discovery
of a new quartz district, called the Jefferson Belt,
containing many fine lodes, of which specimens can
iessen at our office. They are all silver ore. The
Brother Jonathan, Jack Robinson, (near the Paul
Jones), and the Maitland, are the names of those we
haveseen. The quartz is good and full of metal-some
bkinds contain free silver, and others are mostly com
PJsed of argeutiferous galena. W. R. Waller like
wise visitsal us. He and Mr. Dennin_ are, we believe,
the only prospectors who are acquainted with the
exact locality of the region, He left with us speci
mens of the Black Diamond, Mary Ryder, (Boulder
Districti. General Sherman and Mountain Messenger.
All the above named ledges are rich in the precious
metal.
WE are happy to announce to the public that John
Creighton, who was so severely injured by the
overturning of the stage, is now fast recovering.
John is decidedly averse to "surrendering " and
bhaing arrang l (livers slings and conveniences
iround him. he has cut a hole in the wall through
which he views the imposing scenery of the Rocky
Mountains, and indulges in a little light "chaff" with
outside wayfarers. Surrounded by kind friends and
:.aving effectually obviated any danger of perishing
by thirst, either to himself or his numerous visitors,
hp lives like the son of an Irish King, laughing mis
fortune out of countenance. lie will soon be round
town again. We believe that the only way to kill
John Creighton would be to cut his head off and
then to carry away the body.
TaE scarcity of items from Helena is to he attri
bated to the fact that our "Local" of that ilk has
beon 'ompelled by "natural affection," as the law
yor word it, to revisit the scene of his former glo
. lie observed to us, confidentially, that the
bland and captivating manners of the citizens of
lrI.inia render it 'luite a feat of moral courage to
tsar himself away from them. He will endeavor to
mtak up for his absence by an extra devotion to the
Interest of hip part of the vineyard, on his return.
PKRoeESSOR WARD is now in our city. lie is en
t'4ld in obtaining specimens of the wild animals in
thlt country, and is purchasing the skins, which must
he omored with great care, in order that they may
b fit for stuffing. Some time back the Professor
lsitod the old 'world for the same purpose, and sold
his collection to a museum in Rochester, N. Y., for
20.( o. Specimens of quartz will also be among
the articles which this gentleman will take back with
him, as he is a geologist as well as a naturalist.
W? call the attention of the public to the ander
tUement of M. Branham & Co., who are commen
cint buinss as wholesale and retail grocers and com
I.elon merchants, at Blackfoot. The references
rn a suf~cient guarantee of the character of the
irm. Their stock of goods is excellent in quality,
aid of great variety. G. B. Baker, of this city, is,
re understand, connected with the establishment.
Br order of the Court, the road over the Jefferson
Bidge has bes.s opened by Sheriff Howie, who took

uis shorter than the other by ten miles, and the
:hes run on it now. The County Commissioners
put men upon the road for the purpose of
_rsonr etones, etc., and also erecting bridges.
R~tcasn.--We are glad to see our fellow towns
ias Wesley Jones, among us once more. Mr. Jones
5on the road a large and well selected stock of
m are and groceries, which will arrive during
k4comigr week. Those in want of anything in hi
6e will do well to give him a call, at Conrad's old

CousrN CeoxxMssio.as.-At a meeting of the
County Commissioners of Madison County, after the
transaction of the ordinary routine business, the
following resolution was passed:
Resolved, That the County Commiasioners haveon
this, the 11th day of July, A. D. 1866, and in com
pliance with the revenue laws of Montana Territory,
section first, levied and provided by law, a tax on all
property not exempt from taxation, in Madison
county, of one cent upon the dollar, for county pur
poses; for Territorial purposes, four mills upon the
dollar; for the support of the poor, one mill upon
the dollar.
By order of the Board of Commiasioners of
Madison County.
(Signed) JOHN POTTER, Chairman.
F. K. ROOT.
J. E. McCLURG.
Board then adjourned until the fourth Monday in
this month. J. L. CORBsTr, Deputy Clerk.
July 11th, A. D. 1865.
MESSRS. J. J. RoE & Co. appear in our columns as
advertisers to-day, and we beg to direct the public
attention to the list of articles offered by them for
sale. On last Sunday, they received twenty-four
wagon loads of merchandise. The high reputation
of this firm requires no guarantee on our part of the
truth of their representations with regard to the
extent, variety and excellence of their stock, which
comprises a general assortment of groceries, provis
ions, mining tools, with a large and choice selection
of liquors and cigars. They are constantly receiving
additions to their list of goods for sale, by way of
the river.
JoFi GRAY, whose descriptive powers and stento
rian lungs are a perpetual advertisement of his call
ing, has entered into business on his own account
next door below Content's Corner. Mounted on
some wonderful cayuse, he is to be found putting on
the artistic touches in the way of illustration. When
the auctioneer class was invented, Joe was put out
side the corral as a specimen.
OLINGHOUSE & Co., sent us a bottle of Cherry Bran
dy, in order that we might be able to testify to its
quality. Our boys are " on the testify," and the
motion that a " local " certificate of excellent qual
ity, be issued, was as the Devil observed " carried
unanimous." Several trials were made before put
ting the motion, in order to see whether the quality
was uniform from top to bottom.
BAREFOOT's.PARADISE.-We were down at Gurney
& Co.'s looking at 11 CORDS ot Boots and Shoes.
Thick, thin, light, heavy, sewed, pegged, fancy, plain,
for gentlemen's wear and for ladies fair, with a few
bushels for the babies. We are not going to at
tempt description. Go and see.and if you are not
suited you must be as hard to satisfy as a Dublin
Carman-or-club-footed. Weston looks fatigued,
yet happy. 10 wagon loads are over at this store,
besides the old stock.
POLICE COURT.-J. B. Hutcheson was charged with
keeping saloon without license; not guilty; dis
charged.--John Oliver, permitting gambling with
out license; discharged.--Adele Roumy, assault
and battery on Melanie Lanton: fined' $25. and
costs.-Kate Mlarsfield, assault and battery; fined
$40. and costs-- William Norwood, assault and
battery; fined $10. and costs.
DISTRICT CocuT.-Territory vs. L. B. Lockhart.
The defendant indicted and tried by jury for obstruct
ing the public highway on the Jefferson Bridge
Road. Verdict of acquittal. After disposing of
several motions and other routine business the Court
adjourned for the term.
Ir you want to see a neatly rigged barber shop, and
to get your beard charmed off or your hair trimmed
so neatly that you don't know yourself in the glass,
go to F. Wilson & Co., at the old stand of Turley &
White, Wallace street.
DEPARTURE.-Our friend Hugh Glenn, and wife,
for Austin, to seek among the Silver Mountains of
Nevada, a new home and sphere of action. The good
wishes of all his friends accompany him and his
amiable partner.
Ho FOR THE EAST !-Large posters in conspicuous
places in town, proclaim the departure of Joseph
Knight's mule train, on the first of August. for
"America." Parties wishing to spend the winter
with their frienlds in the East, will have a good chance
of transportation to the States.
TnE first thorough-bred American child born in
this Territory since its settlement in '62, is Florence
McClurg. The little lady appears to feel quite at
home in Virginia City, through which she makes
daily excursions, exchanging greetings with the cit
izens, and apparently fearless of casualties.
A MATCHI is made between Fuller Robinson and Co's i. R.
Swayback, and Joe Faivre's h. g. Billy, for $.-.0 a side ;
Flat-race; owners ride; catch weights; half mile dash,
to conme off on the 2di. `2 mile. east of Virginia (ity, on
the Madison road. The money is staked, and it is " play or
pay."
A LETTER from the lion. Jas. Ashley, which was
dated the 7th inst., but came with the Salt Lake
papers of the 9th, states that this gentleman hoped
to leave in four or five days for Montana. It is pos
sible that he may arrive to-day.
DRS. CREPIN AND JUSTICE have entered into part
nership, a fact we are glad to notice, inasmuch as
both gentlemen are, to our own personal knowl6dge,
well instructed,experienced and reliable practitioners.
M. C. KENDALL and A. VINcENT, of the Mechan
ical Bakery, Cover street, announce to the public
that they manufacture and keep for sale, bread, pies,
crackers, etc. Give them a call.
NOTICE.-The Rev. Mr. Smith, Presbyterian f in
ister, will hold service in the Union Church, Idaho
street, at 10:30 A. H., to-morrow.
THE Citizen who borrowed the Mortar at Allen &
Millard's Bank, must be troubled with a short mem

ROCKFELLOW & DENNEE have removed their store

DECLARATIONS OF OCCUPANCY and other blanks for

A thoroughly clean skin is one of the best preservatives

HELENA ITEMIS.
DISGRACEFTL.-AE we were passing along the street
on SundAy, our attention was called to a crowd near
Taylor, Thompson & Co.'s store, and on inquiry, we
found that the excitement was caused by the pros
pect of a fight between two young masculine descen
dants of Canaan. The coat and vest of one lay on
the ground, and the preparations for the conflict
seemed about completed, but no sparring ensued.
The bystanders seeming anxious that the affair should
come off, several of them sought to hurry up mat
ters by exciting the two darkies to "pitch in." A
lack of courage prevented mischief. We merely
allude to the matter in order to find an opportunity
of expressing our utter disgust at the idea of making
boys light for the gratification of the brutal humor
of men, who should know better.
WE notice that Dr. Gibson, Postmaster of Virginia,
is paying us a visit, during his tour of inspection of
the stage road from Virginia to Blackfoot City, by
way of Helena. The Doctor's object is to become
posted himself on the details of the necessary arrange
ments for the regular transmission of letters by mail,
after which, we believe, he will advertise for tenders
for the establishment of a regular mail service
between the points named. The contract will be for
six months. Citizens of this part of Montana will
rejoice at the change from the unsatisfactory plan of
Expressing correspondence to the regular delivery
and small cost of the orthodox method.
CEARLEY ADAMS having reduced.his hair to the
minimum length, is on the muscle, and contemplateQ
achievements calculated to lower the fame of Joe
Reilly. As an opponent of the "one, two" system
of settling difficulties, we counsel the two worthies
to change the wager, and substitute a bet of $500 as
to who can do the most for Montana and its citi
zens inside the next twelve months. Having tbe
good of both men at heart, we advise neither of
them to "pupt up," but both of them to "nsht up."
mYsoual ill-feeling enters into thisdilculty, and all
such doings should be discouraged.
Sneca the water has been running in the Lower
Ditch, great activity is visible among the minses.
Everybody is employed, and the money is being
taken out fast.

VIRGIIA CITY, M. T., July 15 15, 5.
[Non-resident readers will please bear in mind that our
quotations are based upon actaaltransactions, and are gotld
prices for goods by the original packages. The retall prices
range about ten per cent. above quotations.]
Since our last report, several large lots of goods have ar
rived from Benton, and some lots by way of the Plains.
These arrivals seem to have the effect of increasing the
demand for all kinds of groceries, and are held firmer at
an advance, on many articles, over our last quotations.
This is owing to the probability of the late steamers not
being able to reach Benton, or even Cow Island this year
-and the loss of considerable lots of goods on steamers
sunk, and also the increase of freight from the river, seve
ral steamers having unloaded at Cow Island 120 miles be
low Benton.

increasing their orders and buying more freely.
