TIHE MONT NA TI EATIcE.-This week the Fenians had
their colnliente r.ta benefit, and, despite the snow-storm
and the cold, turned out well, and they were rewarded for
their exertions by a good time. The evening's perform
ance included the representation of " The Stranger," "The
Dagger Scene." in - The Wife." a song from Little Belle,
and the ftree of " The Two Gregorys." George Chap
mn-: played The Stranger with sedateness and melancholy
a; it; ui fo,rmer representation of the character. He crc
ateld lmuh mirth in the character of Gregory. (the servant.)
Mrn..t'hapman's representation of Mrs. Haller was, at times,
tatly pathetic. and generally effective. Dick Johnson
made an xcel lent Soloron. and a highly oemic Gregory
Mla-ter) in the farce; ar. \W. J. Nor wood's Peter was
:taziugly dr, ll. Miss Perkins looked remarkably well,
.,i tih stage, as the Countess. and plays with more force
anld Inller- v e(vry time. Little Bellt sang her song, " The
('aptain with his Whiskers." in a very naive and amusing
a. nner. and was highly applaudied. In " The D)agger

tone and ex.eeintion. seized his tavorite silver horn, andil.
turning te musicians into a brass band. gave a ereditaihle
performalc., on short notice. We understand that the
troupe start for lhelena in the be,'iiitmin of the week.
For the iprest i. lhey are starring it at at Nevada.
Alt ToNcG, though clestial, wias not immortal, see
ing that, like his forefathers, he dIel on Wednes.day
mornin-, and was buriel in the afternoon of. the
same. Anxious to nem- the funeral ceremonies attoenl
ant on tihe death of a discipll of Confucius, we
ch(ded time ligital drirction gi'ii to us by Judge
Tal iferro-who charactmIi-tc.ally pointed out the
way with .i large awl anIular lauip of quartz--and
arrnive at the place of re-idence of the deceased. On
entering the hoe, tile first object that struck our
att-ntion was the corpise. lying at full length north
aiii soulth, and covried witil a white cotton cloth.
At th" feet were quite a nu m sber of articlee intended
for the comfort of tthe deplnrted. Itmn, in the first
place, that is to say: two burning candles, one tin
pail full of ric. one plate full of pork, two AIeric:i
cigars, three Chinesl cigarettes, one plug of tobacco,
one box of match", one pipe, one cup full of rice,
with a spoon, anti a brace of chop--ticks, yulmbolic
ally inserte, in all upright plOstion,a bunch of pas
tilles burning, two bunches of grapes, a quantity of
canrly, -olme quartereld apples, a bottle of brandy, a
tin-cupi with somie in the bottom, a cup of tea, a
pailer iof ('hinese tea, and a paper of rice. These
articles were lput into his coffin and on tile body.
which was clothed in a dlcent suit, now, fromn boots
to hat, was laid a change of new under-clothing, i
white hfanlketchief, a neck-tie, and a new towel.
The body wea cart ied to its resting p1lace on Cemetery
Hill, in MJonte's hearse, and accompnnied by six
Ctlllllu'un, eah with n prce of wrlhite tape ti d round I
his right lrull. Just hIefom'r tartirnl, ea Ch I:anl received
from the chief mourinler a m.-all pip-r.lookiIng like they1
envelope of a do-e of colomrel. Arrived at the grave ,
the collin was Interred in A r.\liran fahion, but the
head was rever\ed. Each Chinam:an tlhrew a little
earth on the coffin. and rece ived another paper prayer.
The head-board,with appropriate and touching hiero
glyphics, (if we only knew what they meant, as
Goldrick said of an allusion of ours to No. ii, the
"Tiger" company of New York firemen). Brandy
and cigars were handed round to the spectators andl
cfficials. The old clothes of the deceased were piled
up for burning in a fine red blanket, and the celes
tials having performed Kotou to the head-board and
fixe a couple of c:adles and a bunch of paetille's in
the earth adjoining, returned home. Throughout
the' ceremony they appeared to be in fine spirits,
smiling like the lait rose of summer. The grub given
to the (defunct allorded us food for reflection as we
walked home, our teeth chattering with the intense
cld. So endedi the first Chinaman's obsequies in
the-e parts.
ALBERT D. RICHARDSON, Esq., of the New York
Tribune. A. G. Lawrence. of the Poet Office Depart
ment, Nat. Stein, of the Overland. Col. Roberts and
hip lady. will leave Virginia by the stage oi Mon
day. Mr. Richardson's fame as a graphic, genial
and elegant writer is too well known to need any
comment from us. lis sufferings and daring escape
from a Southern prison, after hii capture, while act
ing as a special war correspondent. will be fresh in
the memoly of our relders. We anticipate that
much benefit to the Territory will accrue from the
publication of the rports which he is constantly
sending home, of the results of his observations in
Montana. That genial soul, A. G. Lawrence, hav
ing accumulated all the necessary information con
rerning post roads, post offices, and other objects of
Departmental curiosity. has engaged to keel the
party in good spirits during the journey, and he will
do it. Nat. Stein, of the Overland, ought to go
East. by Deputy. We can hardly spare him. He
has more friends and fewer enemies than any other
man who ever struck these parts; and his courtesy
to the traveling public has been universally known
and appreciated. Col. Roberts fought through the
war, in the army of the Potomac; at the conclusion
of which, he was attacked with quartz on the brain,
and came hither for his health; but the symptoms
of his complaint are much aggravated by his visit.
As Deputy Superintendent of the McLean Silver
Mining Company, he has been exploring our quartz
lodes, in which he has a heavy interest. We trust
that the Colonel, with his amiable and accomplished
lady, will remember their visit with pleasure. To
the male portion of this interesting coach load, we
bid adieu. with the certainty that they can take care
of themselves about as well as the next four, and we
hope to meet them again. We expect Col. Roberts
and Nat. Stein back again in the Spring- Mr.
Richardson will continue his journey through the
Territories and then return home. If the Colonel
cannot travel, it is not for want of " feet."
ON Wednesday, Koon's train of thirteen wagons a
rolled in from Benton. with twenty-eight tons of °
freight for Davis, Ilousel & Co. Their large fire
proof being full of goods, they had to stow the I
fine stock of liquors in the Gibson House. Idaho
street. Thetobacco and Catawbaare splendid, as we C
found on trial. Hardware, a complete assortment
of groceries, States flour, codfish, etc., etc., were in c
the lading. The place is full of fine merchandise t
for sale. To keep things smooth, we suppose, there
is a whole c'se of flat-irods for the laundresses. Our t
typos add their testimony to ours concerning the
goodness of the wine. They are scientific critics.
PROSPECTORS still wrave the cold and snow of the I
mountains. and we hear of lodes discovered every
where. The mill on the Lucas is progressing finely,
and will soon be at work. Close to the Cavarone, a
fine lode called the Cocoaine has been struck by E.
B. Coolly, prospecting heavily in gold. The follow
ng ledges have been recorded in the Madison County
Recorder's Office : The Norwegian, Ramshorn Dis- i
trict, by Fairweather & Co.; the Charles A. King,
Brown's Gulch, by M. C. Israel; the Saviry, Brown's
Gulch, by Wm. ialford; the Leontine, in Brown's
Gulch, by Win. Halford; the Bridger, in Wisconsin
District, by John D. Moores.
CoL. N. E. WOOD started for Bannack and Albert
D. Richardson for Helena, on Sunday morning last.
Col. Sanders returned to town on Saturday. A. G.
Lawrence, the Special Agent of the Postofice De
partment, has returned to aus havinc anisbed his ex
plorations of mail routes, etc., in this Territory.
A eans aui in town has i.olrmed us that he
has discovered a quarts mountain, a few miles from
Jeerson. The entire body of the iountain darkt,

VmsanrA Carr, M. T., Oct. 27, 1805.
Ma. VALa1rrWI L. OnrnoavR-Dear Sir: Is an
swer to your letter of the 23d inst., I beg leave to
say that I shall be happy to play a match of billiards
with you, at Helena, for five hundred dollars a mide,
2- balls, on a Phelan carom table; and I am willing
to deposit $250 directly I reach Helena, for which
place I shall start in the beginning of the week.
Yours truly, ADAM KLESER.
Wa ARs informed that some men, whose avarice
exceeds their honesty, having thrown down some
slabs, by way of a bridge, at a miry place, on the
public road, passing by the saw-mill, below Junction
City, demand toll of travelers, and wagons can pass
at no other point. This is a sort of high handed
levying of black mail, which is neither constitu
tional, moral nor permissible. If the civil authori
ties do not interfere promptly, there is another rem
edy, lodged in hands that will mete out justice at
short notice.
W. H. PILES, of the Jefferson House, underwent
amputation of the wrist, early in the week. He is
doing well and attending to the business of his well
and deservedly patronized Hotel and boarding house.
The operation was performed by Dr. Sparhan, who
has lost his right hand. but can handle the knife
dexterously with the wooden substitute which he
wears.
ARRIVED on the wings of the wind, Old Man Win
ter. His coming was unexpected. It has snowed in
honor of his advent from Monday evening till now
not in decent fashion, fall and stop-but aggrava
tingly and chillily, just enough to swear by. Coughs,
colds and general pulmonary disquietude are the
results.
WE SHOULD be glad to hear the particulars of the
re-organization of the Fire Department under Capt.
Williams. The number of withdrawals occasioned
by parties leaving for the East has now about
reached its minimum. The rolls should be filled
witnout delay.
ON. Monday evening, Dick Johnson will receire a
benefit at the Montana Theatre, on which occasion
" The Jacooite," a pantomime, and "The Golden
Axe," will be performed. This amusing and reliable
comedian deserves a full house, and we feel sure he
will have one.
MARSHAL DEASCEY'S black and tan terrier, "Puss,"
is to be classed among the " lost, mislaid, stolen or
strayed." especially the last but one. Two kicks of
the most aggravated intensity will salute the finder.
MR. IIINEMAN is still progressing, and able to play
a game of billiards. Hie is, of course, far from
strong ; but tihat he is alive at all is a standing mar
vel. He attributes his recovery, humanly speaking,
to the skillful care of Dr. Maupin, of Helena.
TnE international prize fight between Con Orem
and Patsey Marley will come off on the 5th of No
vember. td
Is THERE nobody willing to make a pond for
skaters? It would surely pay well.
OUR Theatrical Troupe left us for Nevada after the
Fenian benefit of Monday.
HELENA ITEMS.
MONTANA has come out ahead at last, and Judge
Tufts will please credit this last wonder to the Ter
ritory and sae that either Colorado or Idaho does
not surreptitiously jump our claim to supremacy
in the matter of native gold. Last week, the Queen
trophy ofthe Mountains was found by De Foe & Co.
in Deadwood Gulch. This monster nugget weighed
fourteen and a half pounds, avoirdupois, and
meianresin length. nine inches; in breadth, two and
a half inches.and in thicknees,one and ahalf inch. The
-p,'cinen is almost entirely free from quartz. Dead
I wood Gulch i s-ituated at the heal of Snowshoe
G(ulch and is five or six miles east of Blackfoot City.
S'hl. l diggings at the place where the nugget was
Sfound are dry, and the pay dirt has to be hauled
sonie distance, to the water.
II·LE.NA THEATRE.-Mr. C. W. Kidder, agent of
the Pioneer Dramatic Troupe, is now in town,
making arranlgements for tile opening of a Theatre
hero He h.s secured NSttall's Leviathan Hall, on
Bridge street, which he is fitting up, at great ex
pen-e, with seats, stage and stage properties. The
P)ioneer Dramatic Troupe i- mainly comprised of tal
e ntdl artistes from California and New York. The
I strong recommendations which they bring with them,
;how the high appreciation in which they are every
where held, and the heavy expense they are incurring
for the amusement of our peopi, deserves a liberal
patronage at the hands of the public.
ROOSEVELT--Mr. James W. Whitlatch, the owner
/Y! of the ", Union." "Owyhee" and " D. R. Biggars"
Lodes, with the other settlers at the head of Oro
Finno Gulch, near Helena, have given the name of
e Roosevelt to their settlement, which promises to be
" a place of importance in the Territory. The name
i, gi\v n im compliment to Theodore and James A.
Roosevelt, E-qs., of :.ew York City, gentlemen of
Shigh character and position, and members of " The
Y National Mining anol Exploring Company of New
I York." which association hes lately become inter
i ested in the above named valuable lodes.
PROFESSOR JAMES P. 1OD1.E, or iNPW kor',.-tas
bought five hundred feet dh the " Union," " Owy
hes " and " D. R. Biggars " for the "National
Mining and Exploring Coflpany," of that city, of
which he is a Director. He has now gone over to
superintend the taking out of the ore; Mr. Whit- I
latch, in the meantime, has started for the East,
with the intention of procuring machinery. About
three hundred tons of first class ore have already
been excavated, and, with the present force of hands,
the winter's work will foot up twenty-five hundred
tons, ready for the mill. Mr. C. Culver is engineer
ing the operations, with his usual ability.
IIELENA.-The rapid growth of Helena, and the
compactness with which it is built, render it abso
lutely necessary that some steps should be taken for
the protection of the lives and property of our citi
i zens from the desolating anvages of fire. Under
these circumstances, we are glad to know that a fire
company has been organized, and provision made for
procuring the necessary outfit. The supply of wa
tor is ample, and we trust that the present move
ment will be vigorou-ly sustained. We are now pre
pared for emergencies, whenever they may occur.
MAN DROWNED.-A man named Hugh Blake, was
drowned, on the 14th inst. in the Missouri River,
about six miles below the Beartooth Mountain. He
was out pro-pectiug, in company with two others,
and endeavored to swim his horse across the river.
When about the middle of the stream he found the
task too dangerous. In attempting to return to the
bank from which he had started, he was swept from
his horse and drowned. The deceased was about
twenty :ix years of age, and came from Dubuque,
Iowa. lie hadl been in the employ of Oliver & Co.
TOTTEN HosE.--We can recommend this house,
situated on Bridge street, opposite the Express of
fice, as a place where hungry mortals can get a
square meal, for we have personally proved the jus
tice of our remarks. An elegantly furnished bar is
supplied with fine liquors, and a table, loaded with
the best the market affords, sustains the inner man.
Captain Totten plays the role of " mine host" with
much tact and success.
OcR esteemed friend, W. Y. Pemberton, has im
molated himself on the altar of Hymen. Delight
ful sacrifice ! Another name is struck from the list
of bachelors, and another member is enrolled in the
Legion of St. Benedict. We most sincerely hope
that the union so auspiciously consummated may be
only the commencement of a long career of happi
ness and prosperity for our friend and his amiable
partner.
Foua'rAIN RESTAURANT.-Lissner, the proprietor
of this institution is enlarging and improving his
house, to meet the necessities of his rapidly in
creasing business. The entire atpry above stairs is
to be fitted up for a dancing hall, where a series of
fashionable soirees will be given during the winter,
the first of which will come off on the 9th prox.
BILLY MATvER has four fine Phelan tables, in his
billiard saloon, on Main street. There is every op
portunity and convenience for enjoying a good
game, and for quenching thirst witbout buying a
headache. The liquor is genuine, and Imported.
TnE FIRST SNOW commenced falling on Monday
evening, continuing to descend during the whole of
the night and part of the next day. The greatest
Y depth to which the ground was covered was six
inches, and even this was soon dimipated by the
warmth of the sun's rays.
A. H. JoHNson, photographer, Clay street,
San Francisco, was arrested on the 13th inst.,
charged with manufacturing obscene pict
ures. One of them was recognized as a
femme die pave of 9averly Place, *m4 she
acknowldd ed that Johnson took it. On
searching his preises many others were
found'. The Bulltin.says nude pictures of
re.peetable girls In town are out, probably
made by attachiun their faces to other ic
tures. Johnson was bailed for a btidred
dollars.

[Non-reswidet readerss will please bear in mind that our
quotations are based upon actual transactions, aadare gold
prices for goods by the original packages. The rehdil loes
range about ten per cent above quotations.]
The demand for Flour continues active. Purchases are
made with unusual freedom, at an advance in the prices
I noted in our last week's report-the inquiry being mostly
i from Helena and Black Foot City. for large lots. It is as
low now as can possibly be looked for, owing to an ad
vance in freight of three cents P 1 ; and should the pres
ent storm continue, so as to impede the propres of trains
now on the read f.om Salt Lake City, there is every prob
ability that it will advance daily; in view of which, those
who purchase soonest will undoubtedly fare the best. It
is estimated that there are 8,000 sacks here at the present
time, which is mostly held by speculators.
Extreme dullness is the prevailing feature of the Tea
1 market, and prices are entirely nominal at a further de
cline of 500 f lb.. We can see no great cause for the re
duction, as there is not near enough for the winter's con-,
sumption, and only a few small lots are arriving.
The demand for Coffee is very fair, and prices remain
B unchanged.
The Tobacco market is very firm, and there is conside
racle inquiry for common brands, of which there is but
very little in the market.

REPORTED BY ALLEN & MIILLARD, BANKERS.
VICImA CITrrY, Oct. 27, 1865.
There has been but little gold dust offering for the past
week, and sales made have been in small lots. Gold is
sold here now from all the new gulches; also from Kootenai
and Boise, and some that is offered is very poor-most of
it will not coin over $13 to $16 per ounce; but of course
all goes in trade at $18.
Treasury Notes are very scarce, and will be until another
season. Coin is quite plenty. In our quotations of gold
dust, we do not include the poor dust offered, which show
no material change since our last report. We quote to-day:
Gold dust buying for Treasury Notes, $19 00820 00.
Gold dust buying for Coin, 15 00115 50.
