II I A VERY NEW WAY OF OBTAINING QUARTZ P OPERTY. Some bright spirit has caught the first rays of the sun, after he left the West, and photographed a new picture of wealth extra ordinary and easy to be obtained by the children of the East, who, gallantly daring the blaze of a sea-coal fire, or the heat of a parlor stove, have concentrated their ener gies upon the production of'a scheme for stealing the gold lodes from the honest miners who have perilled their lives in find ing them, and in making'them valuablt. The conspiracy developed itself in the attempted passage of a bill, last session, by which the lodes of western mining countries should be sold by Government, like the public domain. Of course the passage of such a glorious ordinance would flood our country with speculators, who would buy over our heads in spite of us, and the pret tiest little game of national freeze-out that ever the world saw played would terminate in the ruin of the Territories and the beg gary of the inhabitants. Capital is like fire. It is a most useful servant but a ter ri ly bad master. Having just fought a war to a victorious close, which has settled the big estate and preponderance of capital t=....u., ,, invr or tie poor man and the actual worker, we should have thought that a scheme like this would have found little favor with Congress; but there is many a man so dim sighted that he would not know his own wife in a new bonnet, and thus a principle once and again solemnly pro claimed to be false and anti-American, is, under a new guise, to be foisted upon the citizens of the United States as a measure of public justice. If the Government had at the national cost, settled these wild moun tains; if the public funds had paid the hardy prospectors for their toil in discover ing these lodes, which has alone, unaided, and, as vet, unrewarded, called into visible existence the treasure coveted-then some thing might he said about the equity of the contemplated legislation ; but as it stands it is a simple and unadorned attempt at grand larceny on an unusually large scale. Gen. Ashley has felt this, and, being in a position to make his voice heard, we are glad to know that the sojourners in the mountains, who have crossed prairie, desert, rock and river; who have suffered the hardships of mountain life, and who have escaped the red bandits and white marauders of the frontiers-possess a friend who can speak for them, and who will do their cause jus tice. If we do not pay taxes enough for the support of the Government, we are small judges of finance ; and we are mistaken in the American character, if the Legislature will condemn us, unheard, to be spoiled of the reward of our labors, because we are so far from our homes and so helpless wh "n a vote is taken. Is there a spot between the two oceans that lies beyon.d the shelter of the Eagle's wing ? Our ancestors brought fiiz"wTtlout their consent. Is li-fV l this, that we are to be robbed behind our backs, by the very men whose peaceful lux ury is secured and paid for mainly by our gold ? We refuse to believe it till we see it. The proposed system is a reproduction of the tithe law in its worst form. The more a man labors, the more is taken from him. But for the miners, where would there be anything to sell? We should like to see a f.:w Broadway dandies, poisoning the air with musk and eau de cologne, trying their luck on a prospecting tour, or a Wall street broker sinking on a lead. There would not be much to sell in that event. We are in formed by the honorable gentleman that a Convention of delerates from the mining Territories is to be hed at Denver in October, for the purpose of organizing an opposition to this most nefarious measure. Let no man be out of the ranks when that battle is fought. On the part of the Territories, the struggle is for dear life. We of the Mountains should have something to say in this matter. We are no strange people seeking affiliation, but American citizens; and the mere question of distance from Washington in no way affects our right to be consulted when the fruits of our toil and our very existence. are being voted upon. Nothing stops the national tax gatherers out here, nor do we wish to evade payment of our share of the national expenses; but we claim the concurrent priv ilege of beinga heard in a somewhat louder voice than is.employed by a Territorial del ogate, who, ih such a case, officiates as a sort I of cross between a mail carrier and an attorney. 1 Iottee to the Public. We beg to inform the public that in four or five weeks from this date .a correct and reliable history of the Vigilance Committee will be published in this paper as a serial, a portion appearing in each issue. The work is one of great interest, and as a large addi tion to our list of subscribers is already a certainty, we 'espectfully request that the names of par tes intending to take the paper may be forwa ded at once, so that we may be assured of .he receipt of the POST before we commence the publication. This is the more imperative as no back numbers will be furnished or obtainable. Ova L.Sa or COIxUNICATION WITH THE EAST.-The slaughter of our townsmen and friends by the road agent gang is a final and 'incontrovertible proof that travel and the transmission of treasure must henceforth cease between this city and Salt Lake, or else that the Government must establish I posts on the road, and provide an eseort for treasure, at certain stated periods. We hope that the commandant at Salt Lake will do something in this line immediately, and that steps willbe taken toprevent the recurrence of such outrages for the future. The case is so plain that we refrain from any further comment or argument. d mtoru t an error in the "copy" of the b "U(Ttf 16 cdnty Oonventios," an invita .ton was exteaded to the Delegates to remain * and *te i*t. tiewerisrial Convention. This T J s anoestb. Th delegates elected to that in Oemvmtion eas alone vote in it, a OFFClIAL DELINQUENC W. R. M. Campbell, (Chairman), Jerry Cook, (Secretary), Gten. Leech, Alexander Davis, and Col. Stafford, the Commissioners ap pointed by the District Court, on the recom mendation of the Grand Jury, conveyed in the subjoined report, are proceeding with the investigation with which they are charged, with much benefit to the public. In one case, $3,045 has been paid into the County Treasury and $375 into the'Terri torial Treasury, besides other smaller sums from different sources, amounting, in the whole, to between $4,000 and $5,000. This is as it should be. We much regret the necessity for such steps ; but the morality of public officers should be beyond reproach. Discarding all political differences of opin. ion, or alliance in point of sentiment, we are determined never to suppress any knowledge we may obtain of defalcations like these. Such acts have the consent of no party. They are individual wrongs, for which no hne but the perpetrators are or ought to be held liable. When the commissioners have concluded their labors and the result is iudiciabLv made public,. we shall have morP to Pay on the subject, The Court and the Jury deserve well of the citizens. The fla grant corruption in Legislative affairs, ani madverted upon in this paper, last winter, was equally disgraceful and much more ex tensive than these latter "errors of account.'" We are happy to know that there are gen tlemen in this Territory who, having the opportunity of enriching themselves at the public expense, yet present a stainless record for the inspection of their fellow citizens. Such men we shall feel in conscience bound to recommend as candidates for office, no matter where they hail from; but default ers of all sorts it will be our duty to dis countenance. A considerable amount of malversation of the public funds arises from carelessness and ignorance ; but a great deal is the result of a desire to accumulate pri vate fortunes at the public expense. Our doctrine on these points is simple enough. If it be wrong to defraud one citizen, it is surely infamous to steal from a whole com munity, especially after swearing to do up rightly and perform faithfully the duties of office. The political views we have always held remain unchanged. We profess to love our country. We have worked with those who chose to lay down their lives for its salvation from disruption and ruin, and the object of our hopes being attained, we turn our attention specially to our domestic affairs, and whether the subjects of our com ments be in high or in low place, we shall always applaud the faithful public servant and expose the wrong doer. REI'ORT OF THE GRAND JURY. TEIRRITORY OF MONTANA, County of Madison. j s.s. GRAND JURY ROOM, County of Madison, June 26th, 1865. To the Honorable the District Court In and for the County of Madison, now in session : The undersigned Grand Jurors of Madison County, Montana Territory, having on their oaths had under consideration the conduct, financially, and financial relations, of the following county officers of the County of Madison, and Territory aforesaid, viz: a * * ss * * * * ** x: 'ý c ai r : o V a * * * * a~ well as other officers of the County, find that some of the said officers have illegally and without any lawful authority, drawn from, and withheld from the county treasury, large amounts of money belonging to said treasury and the people of said County; and have also, in divers and sundry instances, claimed and exacted (as we believe from the testimony before us.) from individual litigants in the Courts of this County, illegal and exorbitant fees in the shape of costs; that they have abused their positions of trust as officers to the injury of, and at the expense of, the Jaggg -L Cl.r. *r weo therefore aek, &a the rand urors of thle County, that a commission, consisting v£ an thl ree hno acr-: . " prompt anu Immedlat~ ac6 t'm e premlse;, with a view to secure and protect the rights of the people, that the said commission may be immediately ap pointed, and that it be empowered to send for per sons and papers, in view to a full and fair investiga tion of the financial affairs of the County, which your Grand Jury represent to be in a most critical and startling condition. R. M. CAMPBELL, Foreman, JAs. THuosoxN, JR., W. U. CARLE, II. C. CROWELL. ALEXANDER KEMP, THOMAS RisaTON, DANIEL WATTON, A. L:s:ci.I L. H. MAaHER, W. N. R.GERS, A. SINGLETON, H. P. Downs. The above Report presented on advice of 0. F. Strickland, Special District Attorney. CoMMON ScaooLs.-The near approach of the time when we must look about us for worthy and reliable men to fill the different offices connected with the civil administra tion of the Territory, makes it necessary to know, in the first place, all the posts that are to be filled, and then it becomes our duty to choose, irrespective of prejudice, only the men who can and will conscien tiously perform their allotted tasks, with an eye single to the good of the people A County Superintendent of Common Schools for each County must be chosen and elected, who will hold office for three years. The other local officers will be elected at school meetings. We intend publishing the school law next week, and, in the meantime, we expect that the County Commissioners will levy the tax of one mill on the dollar, as required by law, and that the County Auditor will return the amount of all fines for the violation of penal laws of this Territory, as belonging to the School Fund ; and also fines imposed by any law regulating the sale of intoxicating liquors, or for the keeping of bowling alleys or billiard saloons. A care ful reading of the statute is urgently reques- t ted, and any information or advice required will be cheerfully afforded by the Territorial Superintendent of Public Instruction. County Orders cannot be received for school tax or school monies of any kind. __- n CORRESPONDENTE.-As it is or great im portance that all facts connected with the resources, productions, population, favora ble routes for traffic, water in springs or creeks, pasture, timber and minerals, should be made known to the public, we wonder that those most interested in the ventilation of these matters do not communicate them more freely. Our columnb are alwayeopen for communications, and we should be obliged to any reliable parties who will favor us with returns of the runs made from placer diggings, and the discovery of new gulches, together with the wants and wishes of the inhabitants of new localities. We know it is a busy time, but the way to make it always a busy time is to acquaintthe nation with the facts that make our Territory so precious in our own eyes. Mo.rtro GuLcn.-These new diggings were discovered by Nelson Ptomy, R H.L Austin and Joe Smith. They are situated about half way between Last Chance and Blackfoot, and the gulch heads in the mountains oppo site Boulder. The creek is a tributary of Ten Mile. The, pay dirt begins at the grass root# and varies from five to ten dollars per man per day. TELELGRJPN1C. New York, June 23. The World's special says, on the best authority, that Maximillian's agent, M. V. Elvin, whose presence in Europe is exciting so much attention, went out on a mission of a purely financial and commercial character. He has no connection with military affairs in Mexico. He is the Emperor's chief of Cabinet, and is exclusively occupied with matters diplomatic and fiscal. The Emperor's mind is understood to be mainly busy now with the question of emigration and exten sion of steam communication. Mr. Elvin's mission has direct reference to these. The Tribune's special says: The first rebel Secretary of War, Walker, is expected here soon to apply foi pardon. The southern Union men who are conversant with his political course for the last four years, assert that he deserted the rebel cause two years ago, and did everything in his power, by word and deed, to atone in some manner for the error he had committed. They alsostate that through his personal influence. while Secretary of War, the loyalists of Tennessee were treated with great leniency, and that ho saved Governor Brownlow from impris onment and Gen. J. Hickman from the rebel halter. Washington, June 23. The Secretary of the Navy, in a general order, announces to the Navy and Marine corps the death of Admiral Dupont, after an honorable career of nearly fifty years in the service of his country. The order further says: This officer was distinguished for his ability and acquirements in his profession, and that he filled with credit many impor tant positions, both ashore and afloat. He was especially distinguished for his decision in the splendid victory achieved at Port Royal, S. C., on the 7th of Nov., 1861, for which he received the thanks of Congress, as a recognition of his distinguished ser vices. As a mark of respect to his memory, it is hereby directed that at the navy yard, Philadelphia, flags be hoisted at half mast to-morrow, and continue so until sunset of the day of his burial, on which day,at noon, thirteen minute guns will be fired, and at all other navy yards, flags will be hoisted at half mast on, and through, the day after the receipt of this order, and thirteen minute guns fired at noon. New York, June 24. Per the City of Boston, Liverpool 14th, and Queenstown 15th. An English armor-plated fleet, on an invi tation from Napoleon, is to make a tour around the French coast, and a French armor-plated fleet is to do the same around England. The combined fleets will be at Plymouth by the middle of July. Lord Brougham, in a speech at a banquet to the Prince of Wales, at Fishmonger's Hall, earnestly calls on the American gov ernment to use their victory in mercy as well as in justice, and not to stain the scaf fold with the blood of prisoners whom they recently treated as warriors. In the House of Lords, Earl Derby called attention to Russell's letter withdrawing belligerent rights from the Confederates, before the Federal government had ceased to exercise these rights, and to Johnson's proclamation denouncing the penalties of piracy against vessels visiting interdicted ports. He protested against such proceed inse, and asserted that the vessels could only be treated as smugglers. lie hoped that the prisoners in the Federal hands would be treated as vanquished and not disgraced enemies. Russell explained his withdrawal of bel ligerent rights. He said Sir F. Bruce had sought an explanation of Johnson's extra ordinary threat of treating vessels as pirates, but could get none. His opinion was that the threat was merely one of interrorem. nfveral rrp1- su Lant1Z nan vuLefnmauetu trd Federal government to obtain compensation for the shooting of Mr. Grey, by Lieutenant Donovan, of the United States Navy, off the Cape of Good Ilope,'but they had positively declined to make any compensation. Parliament was to be dissolved on the 10th of July. The Morning Post says the negotiations between England and Canada are about to be satisfactorily concluded. Canada is ex pected to undertake the whole of the west ern defense. The canals will be deepened and an efficient militia be maintained. The Imperial government will furnish the entire necessary armament, and will guarantee a loan to construct the international railroad. The Moniteur of the 13th publishes a cir cular of the Minister of Marine, dated June 5th, closing the ports to Confederate vessels. It is stated that the Emperor has agreed to reinstate Maximillian in all his rights, in the event of his return from Mexico. Spain ceased to extend belligerents' rights to the Confederates by a decree dated June 4th. A conspiracy against the government at Valencia was discovered and thwarted. An agent of Juarez has arrived at Turin, to attempt to enlist Garibaldian officers and men for Juares. Jules Favre, the leader of the Republican party, said the expedition was undertaken to recover the recognized claim of about a million, with eventual claims, which might vary from five to twelve millions, and they had already increased the expense to four hnndred millions. It had been promised that the French troops would protect the Mexican parties in the full exercise of their opinions. This had not been done. Favre cited a case where French troops had burned a town of four hundred inhabitants. He declared that to attain the object they had in view would take forty thousand men for ten years, at an expense of six hundred millions. The debate was very fierce and exciting, and the speaker was frequently interrupted. He declared Maximillian's Empire would fall to pieces as soon as the French troops were withdrawn, and he de nounced the scheme of the Mexican loan. Port An Basque, N. F., June 25. mom- -ý - The official correspondence between the British and American Governments on the assassination of President Lincoln is pub lished. Earl Russell's letters convey sin cere expressions of regret on behalf of the Queen, Parliament and people. Acting Secretary Hunter expresses lively feelings of satisfaction and grateful appre ciation that the Government and people of America receive such emphatic and earnest manifestation of friendship and sympathy from a great and kindred nation. In the House of Commons, on the 24th, a bill providing for the abolition of the tests required of applicants for the degree of af. A., at the Oxford University, was debated, and passed to a second reading, by 206 to 190. This is expeoted to be the last impor tant division of the present Parliament.

Partliclarm. GBBsoN FInY, July 15, 1865. Mass.s. TL.uoN & Co., MoNT.A PosT, AND Fnuwns or mn DncsAs.s.-We arrived here yesterday at 10 o'clock, a. m. As we were, crossing the River we were informed of a wholesale murder and robbery, committed in Portneuf Canon, forty miles from here, at 1 o'clock, p. m., on the 13th. After land ing we visited the bodies of four murdered men, which we soon recognized as our old townsmen and friends-A. S. Parker, A. J. McCausland, David Dinan and W. L. Mers. There was seven passengers in all, besides the driver. Names as follows : L. F. Carpenter, Charles Parks, James Brown, and the driver, Frank Williams. Charles Parks was mortally wounded. He is no doubt dead by this time of writing. L. F. Carpenter escaped with three slight wounds. James Brown escaped unhurt; also the driver. Mr. Carpenter informs us that they were satisfied that they would be attacked some place on the road. They kept up a strict watch all the way from fannack, one riding on the seat with the driver, and the balance with their guns always out, ready to fire. After entering the canon, they were very watchful. Mr. Parker gave the alarm first, in these words: "Robbers! Fire!" The robbers and pas sengers all fired at the same time. Dinan and Mers fell dead immediately. McCaus land lived a few minutes only, saying: "God have mercy on my soul!" Parker, after firing, jumped out of the coach, and was shot; after being shot, the murderers dragged him across the road by the hair of his head, and shot him again. Mers was the one that sat on the seat with the driver, and fell dead from his seat. The driver was shot at, the balls lodging in the lamps. THE NUMBER OF SHOTS IN THE BODIES AND THI coAcH. W. L. Mers-(Belongs ,o Overland Stage Line)-One shot ini the ear, one in- the brain and one in the left cheek. A. S. Parker, (resident of Atchison, Kan las,) one shot in right breast and in right arm. A. J. Mc Causland, (resident of Vir ginia City, M. T.,) one shot across the back of the head, cutting in about an inch; one shot behind and under left ear. David Dinan, (resident of Nevada City, M. T.,) sixty-one buck shot in breast, one large shot in left shoulder blade, one shot in right tem ple, two.shots in left arm, one shot in right arm, one shot across lower jaw. Charles Parks, (belongs to the Overland Stage line,) shot from the left hip down,-mortally wounded. Number of shots in the coach. On the nigh side, thirty-three; off side, twenty one; rear, fourteen ; front, seven. Mr. Carpenter was thought to be dead when the murderers left. One of the party came back to the coach two or three times to see if all were dead, and aster they left, Carpenter got out of the coach and crawled into the bru3h. In a moment after, one of the party returned and stuck his gun into the coach to " finish Carpenter," as he said. Finding that he had gone, he rode away swearing, "I am not satisfied; I want to kill the d-d s-n of a b-h." While the shooting was going on, he heard the leader say, " Kill them all,-don't let any of them get away." since the bodies were brought in nothing has come over the road. Mr. Carpenter says there was seven of the muraererers that he could see. He thinks their band m .st number twenty or thirty. Vice-President Foster, Senator Ashley, and 8a-te . 'Tt `A tir 'id"6^d1ctA' and they have not yet arrived. We appre bend they have also been attacked, and shar.d the same fate of the others. The amount of money lost, Mr. Carpenter states, must be something lik3 sixty thou sand dollars, in gold dust. Carpenter and Dinan lost twenty-three thousand, and the balance belonged to Parker and McCausland. Mr. Carpenter staid with the dead until help came, and assisted in bringing them to this place. Mr. Gibson had the bodies washed, dressed and coffins made, and last eveniag we ac companied the remains to their last resting place, on the hill about two hundred yards above the house. We are waiting here, not knowing when we will get away. The effects belonging to A. S. Parker, McCausland, D. Dinan and W. L. Mere are now in Mr. Gibson's pos session. We remain respectfully yours, OLIVER DURANT, HUGH GLENN, CLAY THOMPSON, B. WEAVER, L. F. CARPENTER. P. S.-Mr. Carpenter also states that he s almost certain that he wounded one of the murderers and he thinks Dinan wounded another. The driver told Carpenter that he could see blood running out of one of the robbers' sides; but none were killed. Tell Tom Thoroughman that his little watch to his daughter, Miss Ida Thoroughman, is safe. Mr. Parker's watch is also safe. icCausland's watch and several rings are 1lo safe. O. DURAkNT. P. S.-The robbers were seen a little while before the affray, and described as traveling as packers, with good animals and well armed with shot guns and two revolvers ach. Charley Parks was not dead according to )ur last advices, and it was hoped that he would recover. Mr. Brown was stopping at ,e station and taking care of him. Latest Particulars. We learn from Mr. S. H. Holmes, the part ner of Dinan who was murdered in Portneuf Canon, that a bloody vest, pierced by a bul let, was found on the banks of the river, and also pieces of a watch. One man, it appears, had a special wish to kill Carpenter, and wanted to fire at him as he lay in the coach, but was stopped by the captain, who told him to attend to business. Another ruffian came up to the driver, with his gun at the charge, and was just going to shoot him. when the captain said; "Hold on; a dri ver never has a d--d cent. lie's of no account, any way." The driver had no objection to this view of his social and finan cial position. He says he felt his heart leap in his bosom. The Road Agents trod with their heavy boots on Carpenter's neck and face, thinking that he was dying. One of them said that they were even with those damned vigilanter ss of b--, now, for hanging and robbing their friends. The party round the coach were seven in number and on foot ; another one was stationed one hundred yards up the Canon, towards the road, and one was posted the same distance down the track. The horses were back from the road at their eamp. Each man had a fne horse and £ pack animal. When all was over, they started at flmMgailop,with a noise like a.locomotive. They ran up the rocky hill and disappeared over, th erest. The robbers said they did nst waat to kill any one; but as they fired, they would shoot every d--d s- of a r-h of them. At she commencement of the attare one 4 the band, who had no ga., jamped into the road and struck the leader op the headwith a club about four feet long, knocking him' off the track. The turning of the horses snapped the tongue and palled the driver from his seat. The poor fellow who was sitting beside bim had fallen dead across his knees, and they both came to the ground together. Frank held on to his team. Half an hour after all was over, a man on a roan horse. with a halter twisted round its nose, rode up and asked some questions about the affair. He is strongly suspected of being one of the party. He had no arms that could be seen. The news of the robbery reached Salt Lake City too late for publication in the papers received up to this date. From Mr. John H. Ming,of Virginia City, Montana, who arrived by yesterday's coach from Sulphur Springs, which he reached by private conveyance from Denver City, we learn that the Indians pitched into every coach and camp of immigrants that they saw from Fort Halleck to North Platte, and even as far west as Pine Grove Station, during the past few days. Result-a few whites and Indians killed, several head of stock stolen, and a sorry state of feeling all along this end of the road.-Daily Vedette 10th, instant.
