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.

CORRECTED WEEKLY BY

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

Deer Lodge City, M. T.
Accompanying the above was some lusciouscake, which
the printers appreciated, hoping that married life might
prove as sweet to the happy couple as that cake was to
their palate, and that the interesting bride might never
know what it was to " lean upon a broken reed."

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.

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. M., to make arrangements and appoint a
day for the contemplated change to go int6 effect.
