FBUO OUR SPECIAL CSRPRIPONDENT. HzLz.A, M. T., Nov. 7th, 1865. EDtrros Pr-GznrrLmxza: I have been much pleased with the city of Helena and its hospitable inhabitants. There as a freshnees and an energy 1 ahat the pace that bespeaks prosperity. Apoe caries' scales are not in use for weighing gold, and 1 your money goes into a bag which it is no falsehood I to call a sack. The perfect network of gulches- Grizzly, Oro Fino, Nelson, Last Chance, Holmes's, i Dry and Tucker's-are interlocked, as it were, and have yielded, as they will still continue to do, huge i sums of money. In the pay-dirt on the claim of 1 Capt. Shannon, in Grizzly, the gold can be SEEN in 4 the earth, before it is washed. On inquiring of P. 1 Morehouse, whom I selected hap-hazard, while work ing at his claim, No. 4 below discovery, in Grizzly Gulch, I found that he had taken out $30 to the hand in summer, and his claim, though nearly worked out, now yields $9 to the hand; $6, $7 and $8 are common all over the country, at this season. Mount ing "Dixie," hitherto sacred to the bestraddlement of Charley Curtis, we rode up Oro Fino, and turned of towards Tucker's to see an arastra erected by Messrs. Geer and Vaughan. The mill, which is on I the Millionaire, is not working, as some improve ment in the saving process is being arranged; but it is well constructed. I left there and travelled over a lonely and romantic succession of wooded parks and beautiful mountains, to Dunphy and Bentley's steam sawamill, and realized the absurdity of aris tocracy. We saw that the "first cut" was always a "slab." ' Dixie" going through the kitten-and mouse drill all the time, we arrived at Whitlatch's buildings, and went on up the hill to the "Doctor Biggar "-may the prototype never grow less-the lode is big enough. The shaft is eighty-five feet deep, and the dump pile shows noble quartz. "The 'Union' forever !" we exclaimed, after an investi gation of that lode. The old inclined shaft on this ledge is one hundred and twenty feet, following the dip of the crevice. This is being excavated and runs north and south. Drifting is done from a point where a perpendicular shaft of sixty feet strikes it on the crevice, and is headed east and west. At the present time, five feet of crevice is discernible at the western end. The eastern is just started, and the timbering is nearly a foot square. I saw some splendid quartz, spangled thickly, with gold, and brought off some which I picked out, myself, in the drift. The dump pile speaks for itself. It is plainly auriferous, and although " blind quartz," may be rich, quartz in which gold can be seen must be good to a certain extent. The "Union," which is honestly devel oped, is the best property in the Last Chance coun try. Mr. Brown, the fortunate Scotchman, who, after being a locater of the Comstock, has struck the " Uncle Sam," can, indeed, show nuggets to any required amount, at present; but it is certain that the " Union" lode contains many a solid fortune within its wall-rocks, and that Mr. Whitlatch can fetch them out. On the "Owyhee," Professor Hodge has a large interest, and is driving a tunnel into the hill in order to strike the lode low. From the appearance of the quarts on the dump, the experiment will be a profit able one. On the " sultanas" lode, located at tue ead o Grizzly. on the divide between it and Nelson, Mr. Richard Fisher has erected a ten-stamp mill, which will be at work, reducing the rich quartz of the lode some time during next week. His partner, Mr. Clifford,was Superintendent for a New York Company, and directed the work of five mills in Georgia, before the war. The Confederates having confiscated the property, he migrated to Colorado, and stayed in the mines for five years, after which he came hither and will now bend his undivided energies to the task before him. Returning home on our India rubber steed we got a most enchanting glimpse, through the rocky por tals of Grizzly, of a part of Helena, the most con spicuous feature being Lissner's--the Fountain Restaurant. Heading up hill, with my guide, I rode to a point not previously visited by equestrians, from which the town can be seen as plainly as eggs in a basket. The three divisions of the place could be easily traced, and the traffic of the town and the results of the energy of the people were before our eyes. We rode down the mountain, and relieved Dixie of a pretty solid load, upon which that sensi ble beast went off in a business like manner to din ner. We followed suit to the Totten House, where we have enjoyed the bountiful hospitality of the Captain since our arrival'at Helena. The number of guests is very large, and the whole establishment is a great credit to the courteous proprietor. I hope to have the pleasure of speaking again of my further explorations in a future issue of your paper. The city of Helena is a marvel. It has sprung up almost like Jonah's Gourd-in a night; but its de cay is apparently impossible. Agricultural, mineral and local resources are there in abundance, and the folks who live in it are liberal, as well as business like, in their ways. We shall take leave of it with regret, and hope to see it again soon. In all my rambles I must not forget Helena. Yours, sincerely, D. TELEGRAPHIC ABSTRACT. t DATER TO OCTOBER 28th. r Arrest of Fenians----Americans an Complicity--European Intelligence .--Trial of Jeff. Davis---Probable I Cabinet Changes---Irish Republic Bonds, Etc., Etc. Halifax, Oct. 26. Arrests of the members of the Fenian brotherhood I and their examination and committal for trial still continue in Ireland. A number of documents have been obtained from Americans, who are largely mixed up in the proceedings against the Fenians. The number of Fenians who are awaiting trial is daily augmenting. A dispatch from Rome states that the French army of occupation will concentrate at Rome, Civita Yecchia and Victorbo in January. The banks of Sardinia and Tuscany are to be con solidated, under the name of the Bank of Italy. It is reported that several of the Roman govern ments will shortly recognise the Kingdom of Italy. The cholera was raging fearfully at Madrid, and a general panic prevailed in consequence. New Orleans, Oct. 25. An additional force will be ordered to Shreveport, North Louisiana, on account of a threatened negro insurrection. Eforts are made tqdisabuse the negroes of wrong impressions made upon them. The Times Matamoras correspondent of the 18th says: Cortinas and Caoules have 2,500 men and twelve cannon. The foreign pickets were driven up and pursued almost into the town by Cortinas. For five months there had been a repetition of these scenes. Cortinas, with .a force estimated at from 300 to 500, keeps Matamorms so closely besieged that no one dare stir an inch beyond the fortilcations. There is no communication with Bagdad, except by the other side of the river, and none at all with Monterey and the interior. Gen. Mejia has ordered all communication with Brpwnsrille to be cloeednd chapparelto be levelled for artillery. Meji has about 1,700 men, well armed and equipped, but he lacks oiers and gunners. The native po iao are decidedly in favor of the Liberals. It is believed that the Liberal force is greatly exaggerated, and at is hadly thought that they will assalt the town; bt ill probably bee it, an order to starve it into sainsisw, or orce the Iu alists to a battle. TE convoy gso often drives back to Moateey, bee alat lst a irfth as soort of 1,00f rench trogs aad lorolat it-, i "sPrtdlibatkitbeep, The sterner Bast, free beam , arrived to-de, and reports that on Oct. 19th she fell in pith the British ship Urgent, from Sunderland for Qaebee, which was sinking. The Harsa took of the crew and brought them here. The Herald's speciy from Toronto says: The Fenian excitement increases. Great activity is man ifested in military circles, and drills, inspections, enrolling volunteers, etc., is going on. Many sol diers in the regular regiments are deserting and going to the States; many are believed to be Fenians. Many Scotchmen are joining the Order in Montreal. The exodus from Canada to the States just now is , he I ibune's Jackson (Miss.) correspondent sas: Gov. Sharkey's first order to the militia is that they shall search the houses of rreedmen for arms and ammunition. The search has commenced, and any negro who may have in his possession a shot gun or other arms is compelled to give it up. The authorities of Brooklyn, Chelsea and Jersey City are adopting precautionary measures against the introduction of cholera. The Central Bank Note Company have finished the engravings of the bonds of the Irish Republic, ano thorised to be issued by the Fenian Congres, recently in session at Philadelphia. The epeciale copies which have been shown present a very handsome ap pearance, and it is said they are proof against the arts of counterfeiters. The public sale of the bonds is expected to commence in two weeks. They bear six per cent. interest, payable at the capital of the Irish Republic, and are redeemable six months after the independence of the Irish nation is acknowl edged. The Fenian Senate had established finance. military, naval and civil bureaus, and transacted other important business relative to the organization in America and Ireland. Chief Justice Chase spoke at the reception of the English capitalists last evening, and said he believed the present differences between England and America could be settled without loss of honor to either of the parties. The ex-rebel Gen. Imboden is in this city, arrang ing for the formation of a national express to ope rate over the whole country, with headquarters at Richmond. General Ortega will shortly leave this city for Mexico, to assume the administration of the affairs of the Republic. Gov. Perry's message, which was read before the Legislature to-day, says that, though his appoint ment was made several months after that of other provisional Governors, yet South Carolina is now as far advanced in reconstruction as any other State. He alludes to the new constitution as popular and democratic, thus inspiring the people with seal and energy in developing the resources of the State, and recommends fostering intehal improvements and manufactures, and the encouragement of foreign emigration. Northern friends are invited to come. The election of electors for President of the United States, he says, should be given to the people, and an early day was to be fixed for the election of mem bers to Congress. Should those who are eleeted be in Washington with their credentials, when the clerk calls the rolls, they cannot be excluded any more than those from Massachusetts. No man from South Carolina can take theooath without perjury. It is not the policy of the President to enforce this, and he believes it is not the policy of Congress. An election is necessary fpr two United States Senators, one for six years from the 3d of March last, and one for the unexpired term to March, 1867. He rec'om mends the issuing of State bonds and the selling of them to p ly the State debt, and to avoid the present taxation for the organization of militia. Milledgeville, Ga., Oct. 26. In the Convention, to-day, a resolution was intro duced to appoint a committee of five to memorialize the President for the release of Jeff Davis. After an amendment to include all the Confederate prisoners, it was adopted by a heavy majority. An ordinance nullifying the ordinance of secession was adopted. The resolutions of the secession Convention which were incompatible with the civil and military laws of the United States, were repealed. An ordinance to re-district the State was adopted, seven Congres sional Districts being made. An election for Gov ernor, Congressmen and Assemblymen was ordered for the 15th of November. New Ynrkr O(.et 27 The Herald's Washington special says that it is now positively known here that the trial of Jeff. Davis is decided upon, the arrangements for which are nearly completed. The trial will be for treason, and will take place either in this city or in that of Richmond. Ex-Gov. Neil S. Brawn, of Tennessee, was par doned to-day by the President. The Indian Bureau, yesterday, received intelli gence that the Legislature of the Chickasaw nation had ratified the treaties lately negotiated at Fort Smith, Arkansas, including the provision abolishing slavery. The Tribune's Washington special says : Advices received at the Freedmen's Bureau, to-day, from Mississippi, represent an unsatisfactory state of affairs existing in that State in relation to the freedmen. Many courts still refuse the admission of negro tes timony, notwithstanding the proclamation of the Governor, and thus evince their intention to evade, in every way possible, the recgnition of the rights of freedmen. The teachers for the freedmen, sent out by the northern benevolent societies, are leaving their schools with the withdrawal of our troops, delming it unsafe to entrust themselves among people, pro fessedly their bitterest enemies. Bo-ton. Oct. 27. Jo·. E. Worcester, L. L. D., author of Worcester's Dictionary, died at his residence in Cambridge to day, aged 81. New York, Oct. 28. A special to the Times, from Washington, the 27th, says the Cabinet meeting to-day discussded the recent correspondence between Mini.ter Adams and Earl Russell, without reference to any action on the subject. Intelligence has been received by the Government that an influential delegation of Canadians is shortly to come here for the purpose of making an effort to re-establish the Treaty of Reciprocity between the United States and the Canadas. It is reported that Caleb Cashing will supersede Mr. Adams in England, and that the latter gentle man will return home and become Secretary of State. The Richmond correspondent of the Herald states that B. Fabian, charged with fraud in the New York Costom House, has been arrested there. It is alleged that he was connected with the recent unlawful ship ments of acohol. A special to the World, from Washington, dated the 2d, says the Navy Department has ordered, by telegraph, the sea race to take place between the Algonquin and Winoski, as soon as the engines of the former can be put in order. Gen. Spinner, to-day, ordered that the tax upon deposits of a default in a national bank, shall cease the moment the bank fails to pay its liabilities. Up to the present time but one has failed. Washington, Oct. 26.' The fifty millions in the five-twenties being filed, Assistant Treasurers are ordered to receive no more subscriptions. Secretary McCulloch and the Commimioner of Internal Revenue have under consideratiou a circular regulating trade between the United States and Canada. The circular wil! be issued in a day or two.

Paris correspondence of the London Post says: England will make compenstioa in smea way for damage done American commeree by the Southem cruisers. The London Times says: Augu ver a very diealt in the new Parliament, and complications exist that may tend to war, and with the termination of nego tiations, the administration has been called to con stitute a new state of atears. The Daily News says: No liberal ministry is pos sible without Gladstone. Any peer can lead the Lords, but there is no question as to who .oud lead the Commons. The Daily News also says that the reported ulti matum from Seward has dwindled to astatement that he had written to Bigelow, expressing an earnset de sire that the Government may remain at peace, but intimating that he feared (ongre would demand extreme meaures if additioal troops were seat to Meaico. The Patrie says Blgelow aLtained, ne ily, from retections upon French intervention in his review, but that is unimportant, since the plan has been given up. The Times thinks that, should Russell fail in form ing a ministry, a union between the different sections of the Liberals will become necessary, and that Lord Granville will probably be the person under whom the greatest number of men will serve.

IT is estimated that 50,000 Southerners have emi grated to Brazil. If satisfactory reports are sent back, it is thought that many more will follow. N. P. Ba~Ns has been nominated fors Congres in the Sixth District, Massachusetts. Ths nomination is equivalent to an election. IT is said thait the town of Placervillel in the Boise Basin, has been almost abandoned, merchants and miners having taken up their line of march for the Blackfoot country. WESTERN exchanges, generally, now publish in full our prices current. You have the figures, gen tlemen; we hope you will successfully work out the problem of their reduction. GrsRnrr STrra has written a letter advocating giv ing the right of eufrage only to such negroes as can read. He would allow women also to vote under the same qualification. SOME of the enterprising citizens of St. Joseph, Mo., have resolved to build a street railway in that city, a mile in length. The Herald says it will not pay until St. Joseph has 50,000 inhabitants-but the directors have commenced work. SAMUEL BowLas, editor of the Springfield (Mas.) " Republican," has published a book of four hun dred pages, the title, "Across the Continent," ex plaining its character. It is spoken of as instructive and edifying. IT is said that on Thompson's Pririe, in the vicin ity of Pen d'Oreille Lake, there are gold placer that would furnish employment to thonsands at $3 and $4 a day. Keep Chinamen out of the way for two or three years, and industrious and intelligent white labor will be in the field, materially advancing the standard of empire in Montana and Idaho. nTan Colorado Union State Convention have incor porated the following resolution as a part of their platform : "Resolved, That the pioneer miner who explores the country and finds the native deposits of precious metals, is entitled to the same, as the reward of his enterprise and daring, and that the General Government should give to the discoverer a title in fee to the same, at the minimum cost of survey." BT the Lo-Lo trail, Lewiston is said to be but little over two hundred miles from Hell Gate. It is among the oldest mountain trails, and is the one by which Lewis and Clarke crossed the Bitter Root Mountains about sixty years ago. A few trains passed over it this fall, but it has generally been pronounced, from its great ruggedness, impracticable. A packer most emphatically describes its character by saying that " most of the way, if a pack falling from the hind most animal did not bight on the head of the man riding the bell-mare, the train would bea long one." A COMPANY has been organized in Boston and New York, with a capital of $6,000,000. to transport freight between the Missouri and the Rocky Moun tains, by steal fraction engines. The abundance of coal recently discovered in Colorado, it is thought, insures success. On the return trips, the trains can leave coal along the route, at piac is convenient for replenishing fuel when coming out. A thirty-two ton engine is now being constructed for the purpose. If this enterprise is successful, it will work a com plete revolution in the freighting business. By the use of these engines, it is said, trains can cross in eiZ days. Mule and cattle trains occupy from forty-five to sixty. WEsTaER competition in the shi.ment of supplies into the Blackfoot country, is intensifying. Lew i-ton, Walla Walla, Dalles, Umatilla and White Bluiff are now in the ring, and claiming peculiar and superior advantages. Three of these competitors are represented by local organs-the " Statesman," of Walla Walla, the "Advertiser," of Umatilla, and the "Mountaineer," of Dalles. The " Radiator," of Lewiston, has been completely " carried off with its subject"--that is, it is now en route for Blackfoot City or Helena. The " Mountaineer " very sensibly remarks that " some one should be selected from the various routes for the immediate establishment of a wagon road." Let the Mullen Road be the one selected, as its location is such that it would be available to all. Tan St. Joseph " Herald," of the 19th alt., gives the shocking details of forty persons being poisend in Shiloh, Randolph county, Ill.. by having corro sive sublimate, a deadly poison, administered to them in calomel, by Dra. Campbell and Minner, of that place. In seven cases, at the latest advices, thepoi son had proved fatal, and the others, it was feared, would not survive. One of the victims was a sister of Dr. Campbell. The local druggist was not blame ble, as the compound was put up in the usual way of, and labeled as, calomel, and had not been tam e red with since leaving the wholesale house in St. Louis. The St. Louis druggist beng a direct ie porter, the corrosive sublimate might have been pat into the calomel in Europe. If it was, it is fright ful to think of the poesible consequences in other parts of the country. We hope the person through whose carelessness, if nothing worse, sash fatal eon sequences have occurred, be he on this or the other side of the Atlantic, will be identified and penished by having his name placed before the world infa mously, if jhere should be no punishment provided by law. We chronicled, in our last, a death that had occurred in Nevada from criminal negligence or ignorance on the part of a medicine vender. In the case above recited, hundreds may lose their lives.
