His receipt will be good. .' lII I I • l • I I D.Nce AND STUART.--On a stroll through town, we dropped into Dance and Stuart's store, on Wal lace street, and were astonished at the amount and variety of articles displayed. Detailed enumeration woullf he impossible: but the Judge, with his natu ral good-natured smile, would show us over his im t.n-s? and various stocks. They embrace bridles of every de-cription, martingale, whips, (buggy, riding, four and siY horse; ) a large assortment of hard ware. including everything '" from a needle to an anchor," such as mechanical tools of all kinds. t:ble and pocket cutlery, sleigh-bells, door-bells and door-hangings, nails of all sizes, glass from 8x10 to 20x3:: FFF blasting powder: all kinds of grocer ies, at wholesale or retail; with an endless variety of boots and shoes, from a babe's slipper to a heavy iron-clad boot. We advise those in need of any thinc, to go to the Judge; and if he has not got it, he will certainly have the next thing to it. Itt; TtRNuI's.--We were presented with a lot of turnils luring the week, which, for size and solidity, we .o not believe can be eclipsed anywhere. They are from the ranche of Parker and Pillsbury, on Mill Creek, T:ear Brandon City-about twenty miles from Virginia. The largest one weighed fully six 'EEN POUNDS AND A QUARTER, and the smallest would be thought huge in most countries. California loadt:, and with good reason, of the growth her ,egetabiles attain to ; but when quality as well as quantity is considered, we think we can drive her to the wall. There, redundancy of growth is marked lb pithiness, the actual weight by no means justify il;E the enormous bulk. Here, vegetables suffer no such deficiency. This mammoth sixteen pound tur nip was as solid throughout asthe lightest. Montana bids fair to become as famous in agricultural as in mineral wealth. SHooNlsG AFFRAY-A WOMAN THE CAUSE.--On the :llst ult., a shooting affray occurred at Sage Creek Ranche. on the Nevada and Red Rock Wagon Road, about fifty miles from Virginia, resulting in Mr. Thos. J. Johnson being wounded-it is thought mor tally. It seems that Mr. Jas. McNutt, (who had been partner of Johnson's), believing that Johnson de -igned enticing his wife away-if he had not already done so-sought an interview with him for explana tion. Johnson avowed his intention to do so, where upon McNutt shot him through the body. Constable beet arrested McNutt, brought him into town, and he was arrai~,edl before Mayor Castner, last Wednes day. Mr. Johnson was a Justice of the Peace. No witnesses were present at the affray ; but Mr. McNutt makes no attempt to conceal the circumstances. We will give the result of the examination in our next. THE FIRST SLEIGHING.-The firstjingling of sleigh bells was heard upon our streets Wednesday last. The condition of the roads for the purpose was favorable. The previous day the weather softened to a temperature that melted the snow just enough to settle it thoroughly, and by the congealment that followed at night, it was solidified into a fine state to be glided over by the runners. Coming so early and unexpectedly, few of the votaries of winte sports were prepared for its enjoyment. This first taste of the amusement will undoubtedly stimulate preparation, and the next time our thoroughfares are mantled in white we may expect the din of bells and throng of sleighs to present Virginia in the character of a miniature St. Petersburg. PRO!. H. A. WARD, Of the University of Rochester, who has been spending the summer with us, has left for his home. That he entertains a high opinion of our mineral resources, he has left the best assurances in the liberal investments he has made in them, and we doubt not we shall see him with us again. His scientific researches were necessarily limited by his business engagements, but we hope he will l"ve more leisure for geological investigations, in a region so replete with interest to the thorough scho lar we know Prof. W. to be. DuRING the "exercises" of the evening, in the early part of the week, the floor of the Stonewall suddenly sank some eight inches. with a most exil ting crash. About three hundred people were in the room, and the scatter was tremendous. The activity displsyed by divers elderly gentlemen and professed invalids was astonishing. Some jumped clear over the bannisters, for a short cut, and landed on the heads of those who were descending in more legiti mate fashion. The damage was soon rqpaired and the place again thronged with visitors. No casual ties have been reported. GONE To HELENA.-The Chapman troupe have left us, to spend a few days professionally in Helena. Though we selfishly regret their absence, we hope they may reap a golden harvest thereby and receive the encouragement their energy so eminently entitles thr-m to. Upon their return, they will be joined by Miss Carrie Chapman, whose renditions have called forth the highest complimenti from the press of Virginia, Nevada, in which city she has been filling an engagement at Maguire's Opera House. OLIVER & Co.'s COACHIs, which, before the late storms, made the trip between Helena and Virginia in one day, are now compelled to take two. The snow on the Boulder and Prickly Pear Divides has made progress across slow and difficult. It is need less to say that this energetic Stage Company will he as expeditious as circumstances will allow, as that is a fact thoroughly established in the public mind., "Bia STRIKES " STILL MADE IN ALDER.-Those who think the palmy days of Alder Gulch are num bered with the past, are most decidedly mistaken. The amount of gold still taken therefrom is immense; and, in instances, the yield of claims is enormous. Last Wednesday we were shown the result of one day's run, with five men, which was just ninety six ounces. The claim from which this was taken is not far from town. Tae great prize-fight between Orem and Marley which takes place at Helena to-morrow-is now the leading sensation. Many of our citizens have gone over to view the pummeling process. We hope the affair will pass off quietly, and-if seach events must occur-with " fair play " on both sides. We will have a special reporter on the ground, whose report will be in print at the earliest possible moment. ON. THE ADvANcE.-Those who have consulted our commerciil columtn the last three weeks, have ob served that flour is steadily advancing in price. Par ties cannot lay in their winter supplies too soon. The experience of preceding winters should be profited by. As yet, the quotations are reasonable, but there is no telling how high they may reach before spring. TsosE well known gents who helped themselves to gloves in the store of Posenainsky & Behm, on the night of the giving away of the Stonewall Hall floor, are respectfully requested to return the odd ones, which they took in their hiury, and have them replaced by the right ones. Lx EXISTxNCE.--Signs of the existence of our Street Commissioner are visible by a large force of hands being engaged in grading the foot of Broad way, to make it passable for teams. We hope his labors will be extended to the many other quartore where improveuients are called for. Goau.--Our friend and townsman, W. T. Reath, left on Wednesday's coach for the East. The beet wishes of his friends go with him. During his ab sence, the jewelry and watchmaking business he was engaged in will be conducted by his partner, Lea F. Marster., at the old stand, corner of Jackson and Wallace streets. INDIGNATIo Mrslms.--We hear it mooted that a meeting of Bacchanalians is on tapis, to remonstrate against the doubling of saloon rates. Tuesday night is deignated for pouring forth the vials of wrath. The resmilt anon. Jemiasqu's fiprr.-this merltionus member of the bChapman troupe was greeted wstb a fair hose, t his be,4t, last Monday ereniag. RAISED TEn Pamca.-As will be seen be advertise ment, our saloon keepers, generally, have resolved upon increasing the price of drinks from twenty-fve to fifty cents. Their reasons therefor are set forth at length. The new arrangement will go into effect next Monday. Those who will indulge, and who feel aggreived by this advance, we would advise to 'smile' just half as often as u~ual, and they willbe better off physically and no worse pecuniarily. His Hoxoa had but little business before him in the Police Court this week. But one case appers on the Docket. Andy Freeler, for obstructang a public highway, was fined ten dollars and costs. Another case was instituted against Andy, for nuisance, but upon promising to refrain from arepe tition, the case was dismissed. HELENA ITEMb. MARRIED FROM FORCE OF OItCUMSTAMeCI .--Abuut the middle of October, in the year 1865, just as the sun was sinking below the western horizon, lighting with splendor the peaks of our loftiest mountains and casting lengthened shadows across the valleys that skirt the pellucid waters of the Missouri. a "solitary horseman (whom we shall call Lothario) might have been seen" to enter the town of Helena from the west. Later in the evening, the express coach from Ophir rolled rapidly towards the same destina tion. bearing a lovely "Angelina," just budding into 'sweet sixteen." By some strange chance our hero met this lovely maiden; to meet was to love. They proceeded to the I Hotel; the gallant registered his name, with the usual " and lady " following it; and a room for two, of course, was engaged The landlord "smelt a mice," and when his suspicious were turned to conviction, his virtuous indig nation became ungovernable, and these trespassers in Hymen's bower were unceremoniously expelled. Thus outraged, they repaired to the H- House, where they were more kindly welcomed. From fatigue of travel, they retired early. But, alas! "the course of true love never did run smooth !" A delegation of the "b'hoys" waited on the loving couple. Our hero appeared, his noble brow covered with great drops of perspiration-whether caused by the excitement of the moment or by other cause, the writer of this narrative has been unable to ascertain. They advised the assistance of priest or justice. He acquiesced. A servant of the Blind Goddess was sent for; the holy bands of matrimony were welded; and all parties separated to perform their several avocations in a legal manner. SEQUEL TO TIlE VIGILANTES.-Some time ago, a candi date for hemp passed from this life, in a lively jig in mid dle air, at Confederate Gulch, and was duly interred to await the sound of the last trump. Ye " honest miner," in search of the glittering metal, drifted under the spot where the sacred ashes reposed, when a cave in the ground brought him via a via with the cofinu of the peaceful sleeper. Whether from the heavy downward tendency of the corpse, or some other cause, the cave in the drift was occasion ed, deponent saith not; but certain it is, that the miner was more scared than hurt. HELENA SCHOOL.-Helena can compare ve"y favorably with towns of greater age, in regard to public schools. We have at present, two schools, which are well sustained, and conducted by teachers who have acquired, in their ( experience in this Territory. the reputation of successful instructors. Prof. Patch has just opened his school for the winter term, after a short vocation; and the other school, conducted by Miss Sloss, has been open a-thout intermis sion. since last spring. We understand that a sufficient fund has been collected in this fall's taxes to support a free school during the current year. 'iORE GooDS.-Large lots of goods arrived during the week, for different parties here. At all hours during the day for the last week, pack trains might have been seen defiling through thetireets, loaded with goods from the 'other side." By far the largest amount of the recently arrived goods, came from the Missouri River, where they were scattered at the various intervals last spring, some wo or three trains having arrived within a few days. AMtSEMENTB NEXT WEEK.-The quiet of our usually quiet city, will be disturbed by a variety of amusements next week. We are to have two prize fights, a matched game of billiards. between two fine players, and a grand ball at the Fountain Restaurant-besides the ordinary amusements of the city. NEW GULICH.-A new gulch, called "One Eye"--in honor of one of its discoverers-has been discovered recent ly. about 60 miles northwest of McClellan Gulch, some where in the vicinity of the Jacko Mission. A gentleman who has just returned from there, says it is a long gulch. and, from the indications already obtained, promises to be one of the richest gulches in the country. BODY FOUND.-The body of a man named Ed. Wall was found, last week. near the Cation Ferry. He had crossed the ferry, on his way to Cave Gulch, and was in toxicated at the time, Ils horse was seen a short time afterwards, with the saddle and bridle on. whereupon search was made for the rider, who was found on the river bank. with his head in the water, dead. ATTENTION is directed to the advertisement of Chas. Rumley, in this issue. The long experience of Mr. R. is a guarantee that satisfaction will be given to all having business with him. His apparata is of the latest and most complete order, renddring accuracy certain and returns expeditious. DIAlmOND CITY ITEMS. LAsT week a pack train of 90 animals arrived from the west, bringing clothing and groceries of a supe rior quality. The supplies from that direction are beginning to make themselves felt in our market. The more the better. The supply cannot be too great for the interest of the consumer. THE Yellowstone excitement still prevails, and many persons have gone thither. Persons of relia bility say that will prove a good mining locality. UNCLE JonNNY's GuLcH (heading over the divide from Cement and a tributary of White's) is proving very good, though of small extent. Considerable gold will be taken out this fall and winter. FouR companies are prospecting in Elk Gulch, with good success. Elk Gulch is a tributary of Deep Creek, and, perhaps, twenty miles long. Noth ing "big" has yet been found, but "indications" are good. For a farming locality, methinks the Deep Creek country cannot be excelled in this Territory. I w I l COMMERCIAL. Virginia City Wholesale Market CORRECTED WEEKLY BY J-. R =.nC)C '.-LL-, W, No. 5, Jacksom Street, VIRGINIA CITY, M. T., Nov. 3d. 1865. [Non-resident readers will please bear in mind that our quotations are based upon actual transactions, and are gold prices for goods by the original packages. The retail prices range about ten per cent. above quotations.] Our market during the past week has been very un steady, owing principally to the extreme changes in the weather. The demand for Flour at the epening of the wdbk was good. and it advanced $1.00 per sack. It seems to have reashed its highest price on this rise, as Flour in the last two days has been more freely offered with less buyers. There is nothing new to report in the provision market, the demand being confined to consumers. Stocks on hand good. In produce, the market is quite bare, owing to the cold weather. An advance in potatoes of from three to five cents per pound is the most notable change. The grocery market continues firm, with a limited de mand for staples. In Sugars there is more activity mani fested. The demand is good, and all kinds are held firm. Speculators have caused some little excitement in the n Coffee market. At present there is none offered. All hold ers are expecting a tremendous advance. Even those who are the undisputed owners of one or two sacks, have an e idea that the great advance which is soon to come will e make them "as rich as Cresus." We hope that they will e live to see the full extent of their visions realized. We t would advise them to consult with those who were specu lating in Teas only a few weeks since-they might learn a f-- itann of interest FLOUR. St. Louis.

The ceremony afterwards took place under the Israelitish ritual, Isaac Stone officiating. DIED, At Helena City, October 16th, 1865, WILLIAM JASPER GIST, in the 30th year of his age, of typhoid fever. Deceased was a nativk of Monitor County, Missouri, where he resided till he came to this Territory (about two years ago). Since then he has resided in Nevada City, where he was in business during last winter. From thence he came to Helena City, in the Spring. His wife and infant child came up on the steamer Benton, last Spring. She was an orphan from the age of three years, and is now left a widow in a strange land, without means. Everything was done for the deceased during his sickness that medical skill or attentive nurses could devise. At his request, he was buried with Masonic honors by the fraternity of Helena City. October 17th, 1865. Deceased was a member of California Lodge No. 25, Monitor County, Missouri. The following resolutions were adopted by the Masons of He ena City, through their committee, upon the occasion of his death : Whereas, It has pleased our Supreme Grand Master to summon our brother, William J. Gist, from earthly labor to eternal rest; therefore, be it resolved : That while we reverently bow to this expressiou of the Divine Will, yet we deeply feel the loss of every link ifom our Golden Brotherhood ; That we tender. individually and collectively, to the widowed wife and orphan child of our deceased brother. our heartfelt sympathy in their greaterIoes, and commend them to the tender mercies of Him, " who doeth all things well;" That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to the bereaved widow; also one to the MONTANA POST, with a request for publication. CHAS. C. FARMER,) JAMES SPIRES. Committee. J. C. HUTCHISON, NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. A Card. VmrGtmu CITY, Oct. 30th, 1865. IN consequence of the high price of good liquor, and the scaracity of the article in market, we, the undersigned, are oompelled to raise the price of drinks from twenty-five to fifty cents, after a certain date to be agreed upon by the venders of the same. Fifty cents being the price of drinks in Salt Lake City, it is not to be wondered at that we should charge the same, when we have so much harther to freight it; and drinks are selling to-day in St. Joseph and other border towns, for twenty-five cents per drink. All parties sumoibin and eito the fo regong re r quested to meet at the house of Mr. Rocky Thomas, on Jackson Street, on Tuesday, the 31st day of October 1865, at 7 o'clock. P.
