An effort is to be made to-day, by the party which we take the flberty of christen ing the "Territorial," to elect seven Dele gates to attend the Convention on the 9th proximo. Every true friend of the people of Montana, who will ignore faction and party lines, is invited ti be present. We have enough to do to promote the material interests of our part of the country, without diving into politics, which, in our present condition as a Territory, are as much out of place as a third wheel on a Scotch cart. May wisdom direct our counsels and har mony prevail amongst us. We ask the aid of every man who regards the thirty-six States and all the Territories as his country, "one and indivisible." A fine opportunity presents itself for a general union for the public good, and in choosing our Delegates let us nominate only good men, with clear brains and honesty of intention. IIsus ri NavigatioUn. From our friend William Pfouts, who has just returned from the river, we obtain the following interesting information concern ing the "situation" at the present head of navigation on the Missouri: At Milk river, the steamboat companies have erected a stock"ade fort, with log bastions, mounting three guns, which sweep the faces exposed to attack. The Fort is divided into three compartments, which are each owned by the proprietors of different lines of boats, and are called respectively, Fort Jacobs, Fort Copeland and Fort Keiser. The work is, in ftet, a corral, built of twelve foot posts, and measuring 100x50 yards. The goods, which amount to between 800 and 1,000 tons, are covered with tarpauiios. On Friday last, 125 wagons left Benton for Milk river, to freight goods for the "Effie Dean" and "Copeland" line. The "Benton' has been running from Fort Union to Milk river, and the "General Grant" and "Deer Lodge" to Cow Island, which is about 125 miles below Benton. Milk river is dis tant from the same place, some where be tween 275 and 300 miles. Only a few scout ing parties of Indians have been seen. The "Doer Lodge" and "Gen. Grant" got up as high as Dry Fork, on the last trip; but found the water so much spread out and so shallow, that they could carry the freight no farther. They put the goods into vawls; landed the passengers, and sparred over the shoal; after which they got up as far as Cow Island, and put the goods ashore, at a point two miles below that attained on their t tirst trip. While the boats were lying at the shoals, cattle and horses were fordiing about 150 yards above the boat, the water was so low., TERRITORIAL OFFICES.-The offices of the Territorial Auditor, Treasurer, and Super intendeat of Publio Instruction, are not elective. The appointments must be made by the Governor, with the advice and con sent of the Legislative Council. This is pro vided in the Organic Act, and the bill which enacts the election of these officers, and which is void on account of not being signed by the President of the Council, would be a nullity, if technically correct, for this reason. ROAD AGENTS.--If the people of Idaho would just clean out the cut-throats and robbers in their Territory, as we of Mon tana have done and will do, they would not be able to steal a march an d flank the Salt Lake Road, beyond our line. There is an other road leading to the sink of the Hum boldt, by which the clerks of St. Nicho las come through, to plague the traveler. This will soon be closed. It would be well to get some good dogs for hunting them. FIRST USEFUL EMPLOYME-NT OF THE INDIANS. The Indians have been employed to track the Road Agents who attacked the Salt Lake coaoh. N i nm in i i H uN From Ram'u H.orn. RAM's ions, July 25th, 1865. I D. POST :-I am a constant reader of your valua ble paper: whether I am a subscriber or not, is tno body's busines. I find, in looking over the ccluown; of the FesT, that every district, whether it be a gulcd mining ditrict or a lode mining district, in tht Territory. is spoken of in your paper as being a "big tbing." Well, this is all very fine to talk about but to come down to BRASS HATS, and tell you mn honest opinion, I don't believe there is a richer lead mining district in this Territory, or any other Ter' ritory, than the Ram's Horn district. Last year there were di-covered between twenty and thirty quartz lodes. Among them were the Monitor, California, Relief, and others, who.e rich nues cannot be doubted, and, within the months of June and July of this year, there have not been less than ten No. I iodes discovered. Among them are the Christiann, discoverem by A. Eveneon, and the Magnolia, discovered by S. McGee, which will be hard to beat in the Territory. They are mostly all gold lodes. I called on the Ram's Horn Quartz Mill Company, a few days since, and found them busily engaged in getting out battery--ills and other timbers, to put up a twelve stamp mill. One of the firm told me that when they got in motion they intended to make things dy round there. Mr. Hawsburst, the super satendent of the mill, is a young man of few words; m you can easily see that he understands his busi a.eel He says that, after he gets through with the *11, if it don't run, he will eat it; and I believe he oaMld Jo it, because he ham made everything work as hge sid it should, up to this time. Tom says he thinks ha will get along very well 'til he gets to the imem galdgone, and then he will have to whet up. RAM'S HORN.

J J . Ashley. At a pic me ng, helot the corner oft Wallase and Vat' Buren ls*ets, Judge H. L. Hoamer, presiding, the Hon. James M. Ashley delivered the following address to our citizens., We consider the statements of the Honorable gentleman to be df great importance, and we hope to see his sugges-, tions acted upon : Mn. CHAIRMAN AND FEzLro-Csif~ N or Vmoza.w CrrITY :--It was not any part of my purpose in visiting the West to make speeches. I came to learn the actual condition of the people, and to familiarise myself by personal inspection, ,with the wants of the Terlitoiies. But Isoon found that I could not have my own way in the matter. At Denver they impro vised a meeting, which I had to addres, and at Salt Lake City, where Brigham Young has charge, the satme thing happened to me. When I first thought of visiting this Territory, I wrote to some of my flieuds here on the subject, and I received, through Judge Hosmer, a polite invitation from the Mayor and Council to become the. guest of the City during my stay among you. I accepted the invitation; but I have given no response to any others; fou, person ally, I do not like public demonstrations.' For four years previously, I had labored to obtain the organ izatiou of the Territory of Montana, and I believe that if a Government be established in this place, such a. the pioneer settlers of this country can rally .round and support with good will-hundreds of thousands of men will flock hither from the States, in order to avail themselves of the pi ivilege of living under it. During the progress of my efforts in this cause, I was opposed by gentlemen who looked upon it merely as an expensive scheme, and who declared that it would cost the Government $20,000 a year. We have, however, succeeded in establishing a Ter ritory in a land as beautiful to look upon as any place iest of the Mississippi, or east of the moun taime./ I have not yet visited Idaho or Nevada; but this I shall probably do before my return. I intend to go to Helena, Deer Lodge and the Valley of the Gallatin, and examine for myself the last discoveries of mineral wealth that you have made. I came out here for that purpose, and how much I have been interested no one can tell. It is a curious, but a well a certained fact, that when we have formed a judg ment as to any state of affairs in the future, we are always an ois to see our predictions even more than realized. /n my argument with my opponents in Congress, I said : "Gentlemen, give us a government for this new country, and in less than five years you shall be repaid five fold for any expenditures you nay make." Was I not more than right, when out of this gulch alone there have been taken between thirty and forty millions of dollars. Up to this time, I have not had a dollar of inter est in this Territory; but since I have been attacked with "quartz on the brain," I trust I shall have some certificates in my pocket, like the rest of you, on my return. Many of you have come hither from the different sections of the States, with a view to a niere tempolrary stay in this Territory; but you will, nevertheless, make it the home of yourselves and your children. There are numibers of the citizens of Montana, who came from the South, and I, my elf, have relatives and ancestors who have dwelt there for three generations. To them I have said: leave this place, and go to Montana. There, with a free government and a mixed population, many of ihem in the sane situation as yourselves, you will live more happily than you can hope to do here. And now that the good old flag adopted by our fath srs in 1787, is to be the ensign which all acknowl edge throughout the wide domain of the United states, let us subordinate all minor distinctions and cork together for the good of our common coun :ry. Here, surrounded by hostile Indians, and lack ig the protection which the civil law-supported, if aecos:ary, by the military force of the Guovrnmnent n~ur e to every citizen in the United States, you can uite in a manner and with a cordiality unknown to hose who have never shared danger and privation, ogether, in a distant landl. . .._.: _ ., . . Corning over these vast plains, you were united by the colhesion of necessity, in times and under cir cumstances that show a nlan's true nature. I ask you to ltand by each other, no the development of the country, and in the pursuit of your mutual hal, piness. One piece of advice I feel bound to give you, and that is that, when choosing a Delegate to Congress, you will not be so insensible to your own interests an to 'elect any one obnoxious to the Gov ernment. In this matter, I entreat you to use your conmmon sense. If you wished to sell quartz, in New York, you would not send a man obnoxious to the capitalists there. Your knowledge of business would teach you to select some one who might be expected to enjoy their confidence, and when you look at the matter in this light, I feel sure you will agree with ine. I cannot call myself a practical miner, but I claim to be a practical man, and Ishall always en deavor to labor for the good of the people. I have for many years felt an interest in this Ter ritory. Some twenty-three years ago, when I was a boy, I came up to Fort Benton, by the river; but I little thought that my next journey here would be uLder such widely different ci cumstances. /'The mining interests of this region are so much greater than I expected to find them, that I do not wonder that gentlemen of the Eastern States, who kinow niothing of yodr intere.ts, sfould pass laws de:tlructive of them, and injurious to the welfare of the people of the Territory, generally, and more especially of the mining population/ 1 have always held to the principle-and I believe Icame to it log ically-that every man was made a better citizen by owning a farm. I labored for the practical adoption of my idea, allnd, at last, we carried our measure through Congress, and now every man is at liberty to obtain his farm from the public domain, and in five yer.s he will receive a deed of it. I apply the same principle to miners. [Cheers.] If a man quits the abode of civilization, comes over the plains, and, ,itsi his bufialo robe, blanket and pick-axe on his back, traverses these mountains in search of mines, whether they be gold or silver bearing lodes, or gulch diggings, it is only just that he should pay the same tax as the pioneer farmer, and no more. [Loud ap plahie.], I have sought to impress these views on Cougre.s; for I believed that this vast Territory, a thousand miles square, would have been left unde veloped, if the explorers and early settlers had not had a quasi assurance-of protection in their rights and titles by Congress. Among all the ilen sent out by the Goven.nent, which of them ever found a lode or a gulch? Not one. [Loud laughter and cheering.] It was the men with the blankets and pick-axes. [Loud cheers.] Would it not be a wrong, if such men-eacrificing the comforts of home to obtain these mines-should have them taken away, after laboring so hard for them. I carne to see these mines with my own eyes. My most sanguine expectations have been exceeded by the v Lt extent of your gulches, and your innu n,-'able quartz lodes. / fwo billy were introduced into Congress, last year, relative to mines, which, if passed, would have par alyzed your industry and depopulated your Territory. T'ney proposed simply to sell them. You may thank the gentlemen for this who conue to Washington and the Eastern cities, with bags full of quartz specimens. They don't bring the worst, either. [Loud laugh ter.] And they tell pretty good stories about these mines, also. Americans can tell good stories, you know. [Continued laughter.] They talk about moun tainsotf such stuff, until folks believe that all a man has to do is to go and fill his sack, come home, cross his legs unuer the mahogany, and drink the best wine that the market affords. [Loud laughter and cneeling.] Now these Yankees are a very cute race; and so, when they think of their heavily taxed constituents in the East-having an eye to their own re-election-they say. to them: "Gentlemen, these men are tresepassers. Let us sell these rich mines, and pay off the national debt." Fancy a gentleman from Rhode Island where there is a mill on every little stream, and where taxation presses heavily on the people--speak ing to his electors. What will he say ?. "Send me to Congress, and I'll do all that for you." Congress muost be informed of your position, and have accurate information on the whole subject. Now they are entirely ignorant of the true state of affairs, and unless je facts become kaowa, your property will be taxed till it is worthlet. With great deference, I propose that this meeting, orsome other, composed of your best men, shall appoint a ccmmittee to confer with other men from all the Territories and mining countries, and4let them pre pare a document, which shall et foth your rights and claims, and demand justice at the hands of the Government/We shall be going through to the East in the Fall-that is, if the friendly sons of the forest will let us--5-ughter], and we can take this w'-Jl I.. / Let Montana take the lead in this matter, and above all, I trust that you will send good men from the miniug countries to Congress, and they will listen to your demands and fairly consider them./!''his vast 'Territory lull of minerals, together with Idaho, Utab, .evada, Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado and Arizona, should secure a press in New York to represent your interests, and in les than a year there would be no ignorance on the subject. - As the beet place for the meeing of a Convention, such as I have propotsu , I naie Denver, without say special authority for doing so; but I know the people of Colorado well enough to be saured that the dele gations would be welcomed by the citisen si their guests. ,I tca ..not bt ..;" euiI- f II peity.

They knoIwow that Vir 'itu built of 'ee and wood, blhera, and they know.that 7o1e trspaasers; but would they tan y3ou otof it? No! The meiory of the Congas Congratulating you on the unity of sentiment that enimates you, and congratlating you that the war is now over, and that we can respect the brave men who, tbough ever so. wrong in their views, yet fought so gillantly. let us unite -to make this country the noblest and greatest on the face of the earth. Adopt the old idea of unity which our forefathers held believing the country to be nothing without it. Let us bring odr Northern and Southerh brethren to gether, and go and clean that Dutchman out of Mexico. [Loud and repeated cheering.] Ours is a new nation, baptized in fire and blood, and dedicated to universalLiberty, and we will permit the existence of no petty despot under our nose. In our hour of trial, We have had to submit to in sults from England and France, such as have brought blushes to the cheeks of every true American; and now, if they will not pay' us for the injqries to our commerce and the ships destroyed thfough their means-if, I say, by any acts of ours, we have ren dered ourselves liable under the law of nations, to be thus despoiled-let ,us carry out this law to the let ter, and, the first time that England is at war with some petty republic about ten miles square, [laugh ter,] let us tell our seamen to accept commissionsfas privateers from the little state, and to whiten every sea with their sails, and to light the midnight heavens with the glare of their burning ships. [Tempestuous cheeriog.] With the old love of our flag revived and re-kind led, let us make this Territory a great State; and, I hope, before I resign the Chairmanship of the Com muittee, to welcome Montana into the Union, there to hold as proud a station as the proudest of her diter ,,tates. [The Hon. gentleman took his seat amidst loud and long continued applause.] Judge Campbell then moved the adoption of the following resolution, which was car ried by acclamation : Resolved. That a committee of five he appoiuted'to con sider the reconmmendatioun submitted by the Hn,. J. M. Ashley, to appoint delegates to a Convention, composed of representatives from the different mining States and Terri tories, to assemble at Denver in October next, for the pur pose of devising ways and means to prevent the sacritice of our gold and silver quartz lodes; and that said committee report at an adjourned meeting, to be called by the Chair main. at a future day. The Chairman named as members of the Committee, Mesers.Campbell, W'eary,Dance, Langford, and E. B. Johnston. Mr. Ashley then said he had himself run the gauntlet, through the friendly (?) Sioux. [Laughter.] lie did not know whether to say mnything about the "Stage" Agents. [Loud laughter, caused by the substitution of "stage" for "road," Mr. Nat Stein Join ing heartily.] For they didn't attack dead heads; and if the Congressmen who would hereafter travel that road went like the mo4t of them that he knew, they would be perfectly safe. [Laughter.} But he had seen enough to know that the interference of Government was needed, and he had pre pared a letter to Secretary Stmtntn, asking for an escort for treasure, twice a month, to Salt Lake City; and also for the establish ment of a Post at Mussel Shoal, a:ºd one at the mouth of the Big Horn. So that goods deposited there would be under the shelter of the national ilag. The Chairman having dismissed themeet ing, three cheers of the right sort were given for Mr. Ashley, and the citizens disoersed. New York, July 14th. The Commercial's Washington special rays it is not true that 80,000 trbope have been sent to Texas. The whole force sent to that country is only 14,000 men, being parts of the 13th and 25th corps. They will be distributed over the whole State. They are not an army of observation, as ench solditr now in the field costs over ,l1,000 a year. the Gove-nment is not disposed to make unnecessary displays at such an expense. Philadelphia, July 14th. The subscriptions to the 7-30 loan to-day, amount to five and a half millions. New Orleans, July 13th. The Times' Mobile special says, citizens from the interior announce that the pardons, and the appoint nent to the governorship are satisfactory. Many crops will be lost for the want of negroes. New Orleans, July 14th. Mexican advices to the 8th have been received. Generals Lopez and Ulivar have returned from their pursuit of the remnants of Negrette's forces, which had been generally disbanded and had gone to the Texas side Cortinas had lately captured two steam ers on the Rio Grande. The Commercial says, Cortinas has positivelv and oncially established his headquarters on the Texas side of the river. The American authorities had been constrained by a protest from the Imperial government, to order Cortinas to keep to his house. The Moniteur says that the commander of the French fleet had had an interview with Gen. Steele, on the subject of the steamboat capture, but it could not give the result. The news from the interior shows that the empire is peaceful, and that Maximilian is striving to im prove the country and to encourage educat;on. Guerrillas continue to swarm about Matamoras, and there is a great number of Confederates in Arizona and New Mexico. Washington, July 14th. The President. to-day, pardoned 75 persons, none f any prominence. Large numbers of applications For pardon continue to be received. The President has issued a proclamation appoint .ng Judge Wm. Marvin provisional Governor of Florida. New York, July 15th. It ean reported that Cortinas had established his headquarters on the Texas side of the river, and that on the general solicitation of Maximilian's follow era on the other side, he had received notice from the American commander to leave. It was also said that he captured two steamers on the Rio Grande, which playful freak of this lively genius, has led to an in terview between the Ameilcan and Imperial generals, but with what result is nit krown. The Herald's Galveston correspondent gives addi tional accounts of the exodus of the rebels from Texas to Mexico. The rebel Gen. Shelby, with 3,000 followers, accompanied by ex-Govecrors Mooretand Allen of Louisiana, and other extinguished political luminaries of the late Confederacy, are on their way. They had transportation supplies for six months, and were all armed. They professed to be merely going to Mexico as emigrants, and not to fight for either Republicans or Imperialists. Many of the Texas people who choose or are com pelled to remain in their own State, are much em bittered against these fugitives, especially the traders. Those who remain are deeply engrossed just now over reconstruction and the amnesty and free labor ques tions They are casting about for the ways and means of surmounting the general prostration in which the war left all manner of industry in the State. It is estimated there still remain in Texas, from 100,000 to 150,000 bales of the old crop of cotton. On the whole, owing to various unfavorable circum stances, it is thought thyt this year's crop will not exceed fifty thousand bales.- It is also calcu lated that there are within the State, accumulated during the war, 5,000,000 pounds of wool. The Herald's Waashington special has the follow ing; The President has sufficiently recovered to re sume his usual hours of labor. In the Cabinet meeting yesterday ;a ratler long de lay occurred in making the apointment of Judge Marvin, as Provisional Governor of Florida, and the publication of the provisional proclaksaaiio in re lation to the matter has beendelayed, owing to the imposibility of fixing the date of the secession of Florida as, sbangely enough, the leading aathonties differ, .eirly, or qaste a week.

A note from Jim Stewart. Division Agent, atSalpburSprings, dated July 9th, says: "'The Indians are still on the road from Pine Grove to Big Laramie, attacking trains and running off stock.

In Kentucky and Missouri great numbers propose to join the M. Episcopal Church. IT is proposed that agricultural imple ments, seeds, etc., be sold in Richmond under the auspices of the New York American Union Commission at reduced prices.

A COMMIrrEE of ladies is forming in Paris under management of Madame Laboulave, to manufacture and export clothes for the "liberated slaves of the United States." As may be supposed, the track of the great armies is non-productive and desolate. The means of subsistence are wanting and the people are in a destitute condition.
