T., July 23d, 1865. 5 ED, POST :-Permit me, through the col umns of your valuable paper, to inform the numerous miners of our beautiful Montana, I after visiting Last Chance and many other contiguous mining districts, that in this rich, but hitherto neglected region. I have found the true Idaho of our Territory. I do not intend to enter into a lengthy description of I the numerous gold bearing gulches which abound in this beautiful region, but would ask your forbearance while I casually notice a few of them. The "Confederate Gulch" of which much has been said, is situated about thirty-five miles east of Helena City, upon the opposite side of the main Missouri. Its source is what the miners call the Belt range of mountains, which are of great alti tude. Its course is nearly southwest, and is about fifteen miles in length. Mining in this gulch is done by drifting. We have a beautiful slate bed-rock upon which to drift, rende ing mining both safe and easy. The numeous bars of this gulch yield their rich and shining nuggets in ample abundance, to the labor of the sturdy miner, upon whom depends the development of the mineral wealth and resources of our Territory. Diamond City-a small trading post, sit uate at a point upon this gulch some six miles from its source-is our most business like point. Men wishing to dispose of their merchandise for "clean dust" and "reason able figures," cannot ftind a better place than here. The famous "Montana Uulch"-a tributary of Confederate Uulch-is by far the richest thing that has been discovered in all this region, whatever may be said to the contrary. I will state what I know to be facts, respecting this gulch, and leave your readers to draw their conclusions. The daily runs of each well opened claim, here made under the most unfavorable circum stances, with only one-fifth of.a sluice-head of water, will average two hundred dollars, clear of all expenses. I am satisfied that, with the advantage of sufficient water, claims would yield at least eight hundred dollars per dry. The owner of the Discovery, Chris. SpiegAl, took out in one day over eleven hundred dollars, with the labor of only three men, with the disadvantages above named. He alio took out a beautiful nugget of pure and solid gold, weighing one hundred and eighteen dollars, besides many othera worth from :en to one hundred dollars. - No. 1 be low furnished its owners with a beautiful piece of gold, worth one hundred and eleven dollars. The proprietors of No. 8 below can tmly say their claim has surpassed in richness their most sanguine expectations. Nos. 9, 1U and 11 are opened, and are equally as rica. On No. 14, a pan of dirt was taken out of the shaft, which yielded to the owner $128. A nugget worth $58, in addition to $10 of fine gold, was taken from a pan of dirt out of the shaft on No. 16, below. I would say that if any doubt the above state merts, they can be satisfied of their correct ness by visiting this gulch, and calling upon the proprietors of the above named claime, who would take great pleasure in showing then the nicest .gold ever taken from any bet-rock in this Territory. Cement uulch-also a tributary of uon federate Gulch-recently discovered and opined, is proving very rich. It has a fine sluice-head of pure spring water, which rises to the surface near the summit, or head of the gulch, thereby supplying allthe mining districts with sufficient water. White's Gulch, situated nearly four miles north of Confederate Gulch, and running parallel to it, and of about the same length, is now being worked, and is paying well. A bar, which is one and a halt muiles in length, is now being worked, and is paying from $20 to $50 per day to the man, which is sufficient evidence to sustain the assertion that the main gulch is very rich. In passing over the summit from the head of Coifederate Gulch, you enter a creek, known as Thomas's Gulch. In passing down t:.is beautiful mountain stream, you are con tinually reminded by the surrounding scen ery, that you are entering the rich and fer tile pasture lands of some gentleman farmer, I whose umerous herds of horses and cattle are leisurely grazing on the undulations of the most magnificent prairie that human eyes ever bdheld. However, your cogitations will soon be dissipated, and you reminded by the numerous holes dug here and there by the adventurous prospectors, that you are still in a gold-bearing country, and one, too, destiand at no distant day to becomne the greatest in the mountains. This fine gold bearing gulch was discovered and developed I by Mr. Thomas and four others, to whom are due the thanks of a grateful mining popu lation. Of the other numerous gulches in this Range, but little is known, save that the bars prospect sufficiently well to induce intelligent men to expend both time and money in their development. I to not pfetend to be sufficiently acquain ted with the character and appearance of quartz to give anything like acorrect opinion of it merits or demerits, hence 1 will only say that in no region of country have I seen as many rich looxing quarts loves as in this, many of them varying from one to five feet in width. I have prospected the decomposed quarts of many of the lodes, and tind the yield to be from one to six cents to the pan of nice, fine gold. I can truly recommend this section to the consideration of all prac tical miners, with a certainty of being speed ily remunerated for the time and means spent in prospecting for both quarts and gulches. mi an agricultural position, this district etands second to none in the Territory. Beautiful plains of rich and alluvial soil, easy of irrigation, are to be seen on either sids of the Range, inviting the ranchman, the farmer, or the tiller of the soil, to settle upon them, and speedily become the most independent of all the mountain population. This section of our Territory, occupying a central position as it does, situate between Benton and Virginia, Blackfootand Yellow stone, is fast becoming a subject of lively interest to the observant of our Territory; and whether its merits their consideration, of course depends, in part, upon the intrin sic value of its nineral weslthj which lies buried beneaththerubbish of oeantes; aad it onl, remains for the fature miner to ra fold u ntsold wealth wheah is to make il home a place of comfort sad Smam admoniahed by t*h hoe close this letter from A P..,a. ms i the Idaho Iats sh ekie J ws# M ** PrImary Untm I eetlms.. On Saturday, the two primary meeting of the Union party, for the election of Delegates to attend the County and Territorial Conventions, were held at Nelson's Leviathan Hall. There was no restriction as to voters in either case. All who felt inclined to take part in the proceedings found open doors and free suffrage awaiting them. Thirteen candidates for the county delegation were nominated, out of whom the six required were chosen by an open poll. In the Territorial Primary, the popular and unlimited nature of the proceedings may be inferred from the fact that 43 candidates for the Delegation appeared, as the result of the informal ballot. The seven nominees who'obtained the greatest number of votes were, on motion, declared the unanimous choice of the meeting. The County Primary was held between the hoars of one and two o'clock P. x., pursuant to the call of the County Committee. Dr. James G(bson was elected Chairman, and Theo. Muffly Secretary. The Secretary read the call under which the meet ing iasembled; after which the Chairman briefly ex plained the objects of the meeting, and thirteen pre liminary nominations were offered. On motion, the fnal choice of six delegates from the whole number of nominees, was made by open poll-J. P. Haskell, M. T. Jones. L. H. Webeter, Dr. J. H. Brown, Dr. James Gibon sad 0. F. Strickland, having received the greatest number of votes, were, on further motion, declared unanimously elected as the Delegates to the County Convention, to be held in Virrinia City on the 8th instant. On motion, it was resolved, that in case any of the above named Delegates elect cannot attend the County Convention, they are hereby instructed to appoint proxies to appear in their stead; and that if there be any Delegate who shall not be present, and shall neglect to appoint a proxy to act in his behalf, then the remaining Delegates are Instructed to cast the whole six votes of the Delegation. The meetinr then adjourned sine die. JAS. GIBSON, Chairman. Taro. MUrnyL, Secretary. PRIMARY MEETING FOR THE ELECTION OP DELEGATES TO THE TERRITORIAL CONVENTION. About 4 P. M., the primary meeting for the elec tion of Delegates to the Union Territorial Conven vention, was called to order. I. it. Alden was elected Chairman, and Jerry Cook Secretary. A motion was made, that the meeting proceed to an informal ballot for seven delegates, to represent the County of Madison at the Territorial Convention on the 9th of August. Carried. Moved that three tellers br appointed to canvass the votes. Carried. The Chair appointed A. B. Davis, Prof. Dimsdale and J. S. Mearns. Forty-three candidates appearing as the result of the ballot, it was moved that the seven who had received the highest number of votes should be accepted as the unanimous choice of the meeting, to attend the Territorial Convention, as Delegates from the County of Madison. The following names were then read: I. R. Alden, W. P. Wheeler, J. S. Lott, D. H. Weston, Theo. Muffly, O. C. Stanley and Professor Dimsdale. Thereupon the motion was carried unanimously. On motion, it was resolved unanimously, that in case any Delegate could not attend the Convention, he should authorize a proxy to act and vote for him, and that failing such attendance, personal or by proxy, the remaining Delegates be empowered to cast the whole seven votes of the Delegation. The meeting then adjourned. I. R. ALDEN, Chairman. JnERY CoK, Secretary. The Plrate Shenandoah Destreyang Pacific w' halers---Gevernament Ves sels Seat For. San Francisco, July 20th-2 P. x. A whaling bark arrived from the Arctic Ocean this morning, with 196 passengers, crews of whaling vessels destroyed by the Confederate cruiser Shenandoah. Eleven vessels were captured-ten destroyed and one released on givingbends. The released vessel was compelled to bring the erews of the destroyed ships to this port. At one time seven vessels were on fire within sight of each other. Captains Wright, MeRuer and Merrill, and Charles Hare of this city, each lost a ship. There is nota man-of-war in port capable of meeting the pirate. Intel ligence of the doings of the Confederate pirate will be sent to commanders of vessels comprising the Pacific squadron, by the America, which sails this afternoon. One of the captured Captains exhibited to the pirate Captain, San Francisco papers con taining accounts of the assassination of President Lincoln, the capture of Richmond, the surrender of Lee and Johnston, etc. A fter reading the accounts, the pirate de clared that he intended to cruise as long as his vessel floated, unless directed to cease by President Davis.

The whaling bark Milo arrived to-day, under bonds to the Shenandoah, and brings news of the burning of the whaling vessels Edward Carry, Hector, Harvest, Jirch, Swift, Abigail, William Thompson, Sophia Thorn ton, Euphrates and Susan Abigail, by that pirate, at Ascension Island. Probably sixty other vessels have been destroyed. T. J. Manning, second officer of the Abighil, J. A. Bowden, boat steerer, and thirteen of the crew, (Kanakas), joined the pirate, and Manning piloted It to the whaling fleet. The officers and crews of the vessels destroyed were put on board the Milo, numbering 195. Captain Nye, of the Abigail, left in a small boat, under cover of the fog, to warn the whaling fleet of the pirate, but it is feared they were ice bound and could not escape.

SLIGLSLY MIx.n.-From love to matrimony may be but a step from the sublime to the ridiculous, still it may be safely ventured upon, even in cases like the following of domestie perplexities: I got acquainted with a young widow, who lived with her step-dnaughter in the same house. I mar ried the widow ; my father fell, shortly after it, in love with the ste daughter of my wife and married her. vy wife became the mother-in-law and also fe daughter-in law of my own father; my wife's step-daughtei is my step-mother; an4 lam the step-father of my mother-in-law. My step-mother, who is the step daughter of my wife, has a boy; he is naturally my step-brother, besmus e e is the son of my father and my step-mother; but because he is the sea of my wife's step daughter, so is my wife the grandmether of the little boy, and I am the grandfather of my step-brother.

IN the New York Tribune, a large space is devoted to an account of Dr. J. C. Ayer's method of extracting gold from ores, witheut pulverizing. The process is so effectual that plate glass or agate can be made to absorb water like a sponge. The old process of stamping, according to microscopic investi gation, makes large pieces of rock into small ones, each of which contains gold, and not more than one-third of the gold is saved. By the new process, the ores are heated and then subjected to the action of chemical so Jutions. The process destroys the rock, without dividing the gold and silver, and renders profitable the reduction of salpha rets and ores containing arsenic, antimony or bismuth. The saving in machinery and mechanical appliances is tremendous, and it is claimed that from eighty to ninety per cent. of the precious metals can be saved, instead of about thirty, as formerly. Gen. Butler is the President of acompany formed for working ores by this process. Careful experiments yield the following compara tive results, between the stamping or old plan, and the chemical or new one: The average cost of stamping machinery at the mines is $1,000 per stamp. (One stamp can pulverise about one ton per day.) The average cost of machinery to stamp 100 tons per day... ...... ........... $100,000 The average cost of furnaces to disintegrte and desulphurise 100 tons per day....... 20,000 Saving by this process, of capital invested for 100 tons per day .................... $0,000 Assuming that 100 tons of ore are worked daily, containing $100 per ton, they would yield, by the stamping process, ay O3 per cent ............................... ,000 The same amount, by this proces, my 80 i per cent............................ 8,000 Daily difference in favor of the proess.... 6,000 Thus, on an amount of 100 tons per day, there is not only the saving of $80,000 in the Arnt inv.et ment, but also a daily saving of $5,000 in the yieM. BULLY roa "MaolNNls."-A correspondent of the Philad elphia Press, who signs his letter "Veritas," reports the following as a part of the suppressed testimony offered at the trial of the assassins: Judge Holt-Mr. Murphy, were you at Ford's Theatre on the night of the asessi nation ?
