The Saddle sad Ifweae- Old ev Rieeied-Ths Celstreams Spisd--AL sair-The Ptiless sterm-A Csa.la I s i EDrTOR POST :-According to promise, I now furnish you with a few items re garding our company since leaving Vir ginia, and hope that you will excuse any stylistic or orthographic errors that may occur, having no Webster or Worcester along. After leaving Virginia City on the 3d of May, we marched acrsees the divide and camped at the Eight Mile House; everything pleasant and lovely; our men acting all that could be desired from old soldiers. In the morning, mounted early, and camped about noon at Phil. Parnes, on Meadow Creek, where we had the plesnure of seeing Brigadier General Thoroughman coming up in the evening and presenting to us the beau tifnl flag sent by the Mesdames Hosmer, Bartlett and McMath. It was received with three hearty cheers and a tiger and as the boys once more beheld the old and only American flag floating over them the First Montana Rangers vowed either to return with it or die in its de fense. On the 5th, broke camp early and started for Sterling, but did not halt there, passing on to Hot Springs Ranch (Mr. Scarborough's), where we halted tor dinner; Mr. and Mrs. S. treating us with the greatest kindness, which Co " A " will not easily forget. One of the horses gave out here and we were compelled to leave it. All the other horses are be having nobly, not at all like wild bron cho's, but more like regular drilled cavalry horses, and I don't believe that there is a man in Co. ' A " who would now trade his broncho for any of your Virginia fancy cayuses. 4s regards shooting on horseback, we can fire as long as we please and the horses don't notice it at all. The same evening, about sundown, crossed the Madison at Mr. Foreman's Ranch and bivouacked for the night. We had met Mr. Fore man at Sterling, and he there kindly in vited us to camp on his ground, where we found Mr. Seymour Scarborough. He did everything in his power to make the boys comfortable, even giving them his fence poles for fire wood. In the morning Mr. S. accompanied us to the Gallatin, expressing his regrets that he could not follow us further. At the Gallatin crossing (Nelson's), we rested for an hour. After crossing, marched along to Col. James Foster's Ranch, who also kindly invited us to camp on his place, treating the boys in the kindest possible manner, furnishing them pota toes, rutabagas and a great many other vegetable luxuries, so that we felt not like being on a march, but more like eating at a first class restaurant in your grand city. Col. Foster has placed a lasting debt of gratitude on Co. " A." In the morning, resumed the march for Bozeman City, which place we reached about 10 o'clock A. M., finding very com fortable and roomy barracks prepared for us. But you should just have seen us marching into town. I'll bet that the Queen of England's Life Guards could not have done it better or put on more style than our boys did, and I feel sure that a great many of the gents who staid behind in Virginia will regret yet not to have joined Co. " A," who, we in tend, shall be the crack company of the whole M. M. The inhabitants are doing everything that can possibly be expected to make us comfortable, for which we all feel very much obliged. There is a couple of ('row Indian families here, but they are kept under strict surveillance. The second evening after our arrival here, one of these Indians came in in a big hurry and excitement and reported that some other Indians had stolen a band of hoirses from close by town, when Captain G(eorge «V. Ilynson (excuse me Colonel Ilyn'cn.) calmly remarked. " Well, ovys, lets take a ride after them." You should just have seen our boiys, jump. In le.ss time than it takes to write it. two squads were in the saddle and away, followed in a few minutes by the whole command. There was not a ravine, bush or hole that was not exam ined for a distance of 15 to 20 miles, but Mr. Ingin and horses hrsd vamoorsed, as they problably had some four or five hours start of us. But never mind hold on till we once get fairly started, and we will show poor " Io" who will get the most cayuses. Last Friday we moved to a place about 51 miles from town, on the divide between the Yellow stone and Gallatin, where we camped and commenced building a stockade for the safe keeping of our horses. I believe it is one of the prettiest spots that could be found in the Rocky Mountains. I don't think that any red skin could ap proach the camp within 5.000 yards without being seen, as there is a splendid open view all around. But now comes the best part of the trip. On Friday evening it commenced to rain, but pic ture to yourself our surprise when, on waking the next morning, we found our selves buried under three feet of snow, and at the same time it sept blowing a regular old fashioned snow storm, which lasted all day. But the boys took it pretty cool, a little hearty cursing ex cepted. Yesterday we had fine weather again, and to-day nearly all the snow has left One thing I have forgot to men tion yet, and that is that during the snow storm our Captain, with a great deal of trouble and expense, contrived to get two tents for the company. which contributed a great deal to our comfort. In fact our captain, who is doing double duty, first as Captain of Co. " A,' then as A. A. A., and lastly as post commander, is trying every thing that possibly can be done to make the company comforta ble, and there is not a man in the com mand who would not go through fire or water for him. Our thanks are also due to Capt. T. A. Tuller for his kindness in advancing provisions and lending tents, and many other acts too numerous to re coant, but which will never be forgotten. I must also men Lon Mr. Thomas Cover and Mr. Pars, for their great kindness, ese. We espoet to see some more dfour QiJnlai bos out here soon. Yours, truly, AIaesrr. s`. - astg ow, >r r . , urn. 4'_ I _ USINES8_ CARDS. Tro. L8.TATE WCUISLLRO AT LAW, sad NOTARY PUBLIC.
