From the 1st day of March of the present year,

Total amount of Warrants issued... - -.- . $10,535 95
Amount of Warrants redeemed by Treasurer.. 9.359 02
Amout of outstanding debt .... - ...- $1177 93
This last amount. $1,177 93, is liable to be
increased by $65 00, which is the amount of accounts
allowed by your honorable body, and the warrants in
for which have not yet been demanded. The above th
estimate also includes the pay of our Police force,
up to the 15th of this month, and all or the city offi
cers to the l1t of the month, with the eiception of
the City Clerk, whose salary has not been drawn since B.
the 2d day of July; but which is retained to balance
a deficit in the accounts of a former deputy, amount
ing to $321 40. The salary now due the clerk will he
over-pay this amount, leaving a small sum of his hi
salary still unpaid. A few other small amounts, di
amounting to not over $100 00, completes the amount
of the indebtedness of the city. o
Of the amount of unpaid Warrants, ($1,177 93)
the larger portion is now in my hands, having been0
received by me in payment of licenses during the b
present week ; as also a considerable amount of U. S.
currency. Taking this into consideration, together c
with the balance now remaining in the hands of the
Treasurer in favor of the city, as shown byhis state- I
ment, ws may fairly say that the city is now entirely
free from debt.
The office of Street Commission-r being abolished,
$2,00o per annum is thud saved ; $1,000 ,- also saveil
Lby your reduction of the salary of the City Clerk.
The Police Department. alo clotribut'., by your
wise and economical legislation, the sum of $475 00U
per month, or $4,500 00 per annum, to this fund-
making the actual saving of $7.500 00 per annum I
to the citizens of this city.
With this amount saved, two courses present them
selves: A reduction of taxes, or an expenditure for
the comfort, improvement and beauty of our city,
either of which would contribute much to the satih
faction of the citizens.
If the present rate of taxation is continued, with
the present economical government and the fast
increasing busine:s of the city, in thi- course of an
other year, a considerable fund will have accumula
ted, which can be used towards making Virginia!
City the neatest. most beautiful and most elegant, i
as it is now the best regulated city, in Montana, and
e the metropolis of our young Tanitory.
The happy result of your constant labors of the
past month will, I hope, render the government of
the city acceptable and useful to all classes of citi
zens, and gain for you, as you well deserve, their
approbation for your earnest endeavors lately made
in behalf of their individual and general welfare.
Respectfully submitted,

[From the ButTals Express.I tio0
Northern Pacific Railroad. reci
The New York Tribune, in a recent arti- day
cle on the visit of English capitalists to this tIe
country. remark"d : " any
, Our Pacific Railroads '~ir peculiarly inviting to o
moneyed men. It is th? purpose of tl.o Briti-l cot
Government to open a path to the Pacific Ocean. em
They must see that their Atlantic & Great Western, tra
rich as it is now, will become far more valuable sai
when hi freight trains are burdened with teas of co
China and the spices of the occidental nations.
England has long desired a road to the Pacific, and tal
her engineers have, time and again, endeavored to an
'find a way through British America. The favorite pu
scheme has been to continue the Grand Trunk Rail- th
wny to Lake Superior, and thence by way of rivers de
and lakes and branch roads to Puget $ound. The ti,
difficulty with this plan lies in the climate. For six ti
months in the year, the route would not be useful. or
ACdorlingly, British enterprise will probably becom- c<
polled reluctantly to abanmion the project of a British at
railroad. If Sir Morton Peto and his friends have
much money to spend, let them go to work and do n
for British America, anD indeed for the British ti
Empire, what its own engineers have failed to do." tl
The Tribune then points out to the atten- d
tion of these gentlemen the line proposed
from Lake Superior to the Pacific, not
through British territory, but skirting the
British line, through Minnesota, Montana, 4
Idaho and Washington Territories. We
desire to add something to the Tribune's
suggestions, with a view to directing general
attention to this Northern Pacific Railroad
t" route. Its superior advantages over the
Central route are made strikingly apparent
. by a few facts and calculations.
Making Chicago, at the head of Lake
Michigan, and Du Luth, at the Western
extremity of Lake Superior, the starting,
points at the east of the respective rail
roads, each place being about the same num
ber of days' sail from Buffalo, the following
FS results are arrived at. They prove the north
ern route, beyond dispute, to be the one
over which the teas, silks, gums and spices
of the East will find their way to the Atlantic
States and Western Europe: ... ..:
SDu Luth, at the mouth of the.St. Louis
river, which empties into the Fond du Lac
of Lake Superior, is nearly in latitude 47
and in longitude 15 deg. 30 min. west from N
Washington. A degree of longitude in that d
latitude is 47 10-100ths statute miles long. (1
Chicago, at the head of Lake Michigan, is q
in latitude 42 deg. and longitude 10t) deg. q
and 40 min. west of Washington. A degree o
of longitude in that latitude is 51 32-100ths
statute miles long. The western termina
tions of both the railroads, at San Francisco t
and on Paget's Sound, are in longitude 45 5
deg. 30 min. west.
Thin makes the distance, in a direct line,

A ship sailing from PuFget's sonad, in lat

4tole 48 2-100lths miles long, while one
saiing from San Franoisco, in latitude 38
de ., moves on those ao 54 $2-100ths miles

eloficatd t giv en nAlnt in Japsn say
, altt's e
I thn amore 1Southuu one. Blodgett's grea
work on Climatology settles this question.
This line of Winter temperature laid down
by him, which passes near Food du Lac,
pursues a northwesterly course, till it ap- E
proaches the mountain ranges ; there it sud
denly turns to the south and passes into ii
New Mexico, where it crosses the mountains f
and passes up on their western flanks, thus
giving to the mountain regions between the
Saskatchawan country and New Mexico,
through which both the Northern and Central 1
Railroads must pass, a uniform winter cli
mate of equal severity.
When this Northern Pacific Railroad shall
have been constructed, what wonderful
changes will be wrought in the course of
Commerce? For example:
From Yeddo to Puget's Sound, distance
4,500 miles, which can bemadeby a load
ed steamer in.................... 121 days.
From Puget's Sound to Fond du Lac, by
railroad, at 15 miles per hour.......... 4
3 Fond du Lac to Buffalo, by steamer....... 4
o Buffalo to New York, by railroad......... "
0 From Yeddo to New York........... 2lidays.
5 A few days will, of course, have to be
4 added for handling.
1 This city, New York and Boston are vastly
more interested in the Northern Pacific rail
s road than in any more southern one. As
)5 an investment, it promises better results.
2 Passing, as it will, through Montana and
- Idaho, it would at once find a local business.
Really, is it not strange that its merits have
been overlooked so long, and that public
ts interest should be confined exclusively to
ve the middle route ?
Quartz Mining Law.
B. it enacted by the Legislative Assembly of the t
Territory of Montana : o
SECTION 1. That any person or persons that may
hereafter discover any quartz lead, lode, or ledge.
shall be entitled to onie claim thereon by right of
discovery, and one claim each by pre-emption. 3
SECTION. 2. That in order to entitle any person ti
or persons to record in the County Recorder's office d
of the proper county any lead, lode or ledge, either h
of gold or silver, or claims thereon, there shall first t
be discovered on said lead, lode or ledge, a vein or f
crevice of quartz ore with at least one well defined r
wall. e
SEC:TION 3. Claims on any lead, lode, or ledge, I
either of gold or silver, hereafter discovered, shall
consist of not more than two hundred feet along
the lode, 1' ld or ledge, together with all dips, spurs
and angi , emanating or diverging from said lead,
lode or ledge, as also fifty feet on each side of the
center of said lead, lode or ledge, for working pur
po es; 'RVUDuED, that when two or more leads,
lodes, or ledges, shall be.discovered within one hun
dred feet of each other, either running parallel or
crossing each other, the ground between such leads,
lodes or ledges shall belong equally to the claimants
of said leads, lodes, or ledges, without regard to the
priority of discovery or pre-emption.
SECTION 4. When any leads, lodes, or ledges,
shall cro s each other, the quartz ore or mineral in
the crevice or vein at the place of crossing, shall be
I long to, and be.the property of, the claimant upon
the lead, lode, or ledge, first discovered. . e
SE-c;IO.N That before any record shall be made i
under the provisionf of this Act, there sball be
pIhced at each extremity of the discovery claim, a
good and substantial stake, not less than five inches j
in diameter, said stake to be firmly planted or sunk a p
into the ground, extending two feet above ground; api
that upon each stake there shall be placed, in legible Ire
characters, the name of the lead, lode or ledge, and wit
that of the discoveror or discoverors, the date of pla
discovery, and the name of each pre-emptor or claim- un
ant, and the directions or bearings, as near as may tio
be, of his or her claims. Said stakes and the in- the
scriptions thereon, to be replaced at least once in ciz
twelve months, by the claimants on said lode, lead, ece
or ledge, if torn down or otherwise destroyed.
SECTION 6. Notice of the discovery or pre-emp
tion, upon any lead, lode, or ledge, shall be filed for
record in the County Recorder's office of the county GE
in which the same may be situated, within fifteen Tl
- days of the date of the discovery or pre-emption, and de
s there shall, at the same time, be an oath taken before
S ecorder, that the claimant or claimants are each
and all of them bona fide residents of the Territory te
o of Monana., and there shall be dep, sited in the Re- P1
i corder's office, either by the discove"ror or some pre- t

Letter from laemehori District.
RA SHoRj. Gcu.&', Oct. 31st, 1865.
ED. Post: Every quartz district has some one to
sing its praises, and I do not see why Ramshobmn
District should not be represented n the Pory ; so
if you will kindly spare me a corner of your valua
ble paper, I ehall be obliged by your inserting the
following particulars of our leads :
The quarts of Ramshorn i- all gold ore; so silver
has yet been found. The fir.t lode discovered was
the Ca'ifornia, in April, 1413 ; the Monitor was
recorded one year later. This fine lode has been
worked successfully, and has paid a large dividend.
First, an arastra was employed; and then a twelve
stamp mill; which last was working till stopped by
the cold. The Relief, the Mormon Boy, the Eagle
Bird, the Washoe, the Etna, the North Star, the Star
of the West, the Henry Clay. the Christas sad the
Longisy, are some of the numerous ledg in the
District, and would average a five-foot crevie. The
crevice of the latter is eighteen feet in width at foour
i teen feet deep.
There is no place in the Territory better fttd for
working lode mines; for there is as much wood anm
water as is desirable, and the quarts from the far
e theet claim on any of the lodes named and many
' others, could be hauled to a good mill rite within
half s mile of the shaft.
Right in the center of the lode country i a mw
mill, owned by Holter Co., which can turn out
four thousmand feet of lumber per day of twety-four
1, The ulch is about sixteen miles, due north, from
1- IVirinia City, and there is a good wagon road right
in to it. Any quantity of quarts is to be found in
le Rmslsorn ktract--the country is full of it. A
mil and a half from the mill is the town of Bsgd.d.
