PEN AND sCIPsnOUS. ThOe wet. The Colorada 1Mier thus chronicles fis tiann in Colorado: Out of mere curiosi ty, and led by that instinct that carries a local journalist into all sorts of places in search of items, we on Monday last attended the first prize fight that has ever blessed (?) our visuals. The mill came off two and a half miles above Denver on the (jolden City road. and the parties were " Pony " Ward of Georgetown and Shanessy of Denver. The " Pony " was much more than a match for his antag onist in wind, endurance and activity baut-the latter oould put in the biggest kind of licks and would soon have knock ed the " Pony " out of time had it not been for his alert dodging. The "Pony" was first to tap the clart and would have worn out his man by his superior endurance and activity had it not been for a " foul " which caused the referee to decide the battle in favor of Sha nessy. Neither party was very much punished but the " Pony " had a decided advantage in this respect. Another match between the same parties is on the tapis and Georgetown is spoken of as the place for the fight. Col. Heine and Professor Simonin are visiting and lecturing in Colorado. Mr. Whitney is also delivering lectures on the Paris Exposition. The Register has the following from his introductory re marks : Col. Heine said it was a mis taken impression that he was a foreign er. When he first landed at the foot of Chambers street he went to the city Hall without changing his shirt and took the first steps to secure citizenship. For the last eighteen years he has been attached to the Topographical Engin eer corps. When the war broke out he was in Yeddo, Japan, but in fifty-four days had returned home and was at his post. He served with distinction during the war, commanding a regiment, then a brigade, and in Sheridan's campaign in the Virginia valley acted as General of division. At present he is attached to the Legation at Paris, from which he got leave of absence for ninety days to visit Colorado. The idea only struck him and Prof. Simonin to come here about the middle of August, and they have certainly lost no time. A dispatch to the San Franciso Bee says: Thomas Byrne, who shot and killed Michael Gibbon, alias Welsh, in a saloon three weeks ago, was sent before the Grand Jury this morning on a charge of murder. The suicide of A. M. Chap pelle, the real estate agent, has created quite a sensation. IHe wrote a letter to (ieo. Y. Knox in which he declared that he felt that he was going insane, and that he felt that he must kill himself or become an inmate of the Insane Asylum. He crossed to Oakland on Saturday night on the 6+ boat and when opposite Goat Island jumped overboard and was drowned. This morning Richard Rich ardson, while serving a writ on a negro at Oakland, was shot and instantly kill ed. Richardson is a policeman, and the negro had squatted on a piece of land and refused to give it up. The Oak landers have taken the negro and are trying him by lynch law. Rumor has just come that he is to be hung at 2 o'clock. The following is from the San Fran cisco DiepatMe of Oct. 19: A dispatch from Healdsburg says that a fearful drama occurred on the day of the elec tion at Little Lake, Mendocino county, the particulars of which have been given by a gentleman who has returned from there. It appears that a feud has long existed between two families of the names of ('oats and Frost. On the day mentioned both families came to the town armed, and when they met, Coats immediately fired at and killed Frost. The firing at once became general e tween the families, during which five of the Coats family were killed and three wounded dangerously, while on the other hand Frost was killed and his son in-law, Duncan, was mortally wounded. Not a word was spoken by either party during the affray. Ex-zov. Evans and Mears. Griffey and Chevrer, the committee appointed by the ex-soldiers to represent them at the lay ing of the corner stone of the monument about to be erected in honor of the dead heroes, left Denver Oct. 18th by the I southern coach for Santa Fe. t F' cith ult. Mlllersville, Hieo miles east of Fort .Isg1. The;aeae.e - ,. wo men of that burgh named Bell McAtee, while under the ta.tenese o " tarantula juice," gjlantq the house of one ,..-~, started o t- M-A le followed by.2 e ., . sd_ the door, and before RcAtee could tun around. Bell shot him In the baek sdd again in the side as hb Iartially swung round. McAtee them feE and was ai. ssbot Bell in the head. AU thaw wounds were mortal. McAtee, after he fell, fired twice at Bell, and died almost lan.shtly. Bell was tmmedately arreste by the dtisens. but let gb shortly after. As soon as the facts became known at Fort Bridger, Col. Minuer sent a party of soldiers to arrest the murderer. The body of MeAtee was brought to Bridger and interred. A "mill" took place at Cobura's Sts tion of Sunday, says the Nevdsa 2ram script, between Bush and Budd, for $600. Budd's fighting weight was 190 pounds and Bush's 165. Matt. Tracy and Geo. Macntyre acted as seconds to Bush,and Branch and McDonald acted for Budd. Mike Healy and Charles Linn were bot tie-holders. The fight commenced at 8 o'clock P. x., and the principals came to the scratch for fifteen rounds, They hit one another over the peepers, slashed each other in the mug and performed many other tricks known to the ring, for fifteen and a half minutes, during which time considerable skirmishing was kept up on the outside, and Matt. Tracy knocked one of the other seconds out of the ring. The sixteenth round Budd did not come to time, Bush win ning the fight and purse, and his antag onist sent for a doctor. The Sacramento Union says: Gov. Lowe has, by virtue of an act of the Leg islature. pardoned Thomas Ruigo, con victed of grand larceny and sentenced to three years in the State Prison; H. D. Cresswell, for burglary, two years; Al. Wyatt, grand larceny, two years ; Louis Viagas. assault with deadly weapon, one year; James W. Clark, grand larceny, two years ; Ah Chum, assault with dead ly weapon, one year; John Harrington, burglary, one year; D. S. Woodman, grand larceny, two years. About ten days ago, says the Visalia (Cal) Delta of Oct. 12, an immense water-spout burst upon the eastern slope of the range, west of Tulare Lake, and the water came down the slope with terrific violence, carrying logs, rocks, brush, gravel and immense piles of de bris to the plain. When it struck the plain it tort out a channel 100 feet wide for some distance towards the Lake, and the debris is scattered for some five or six miles in the track of the torrent home Mexicans in a little ravine at the foot of the hills barely escaped with their lives, while their hut was whirl ed away upon the face of the furious tor rent. The Prescott Arizonian has an article on the resources of Arizona, and claims for that Territory fine grazing, agricul tural and mineral advantacs, which are aided by an unequaled climate. The development of these resources will be greatly aided by the opening of the Colorado riverand the completion of one of the southern lines of the Pacific rail way. Indian wars have greatly im peded the progress of that Territory, as they have all others, but a day of peace and prosperity will soon come. The Colorado Tribune of Oct. 16 says: We saw at Warren, Hussey & Co.'s, yes terday,twenty ounces of bogus dust that had just been offered by a man from Montana. They readily detected the imposition, and declined to purchase. It is composed of spelter and brass filings, and is entirely worthless. The party offering it for sale appeared inno cent of intent to defraud by imposing bogus dust on them, so they let him de part. Our opinion is that the police ought to investigate the matter a little. Perhaps the really guilty parties might be brought to justice thereby. They are getting moral in our name sake town of Nevada, as per the tollow ing in the Virginia Enterprise: The proprietor's of Piper's Opera House con template giving a performance one night in each week for ladies-at least the pro ject will be tried, and if sufficiently en couraged there will be a " ladies' night " every week. Of course, on the night set apart neither smoking nor drinking will be allowed among the audience, nor will there be anything said or done of a na ture to shock the feelings of any that may attend. The Enterprias says : The Gould & Curry Mill is in full blast with a full force of workmen. The daily average of ore taken from the mine is at present 100 tons, with from 3,500 to 4,000 tons already ahead in the ore houses at the mine and mill. Thus, it will be seen, that the report circulated some weeks since to the effect that the mill would shortly shut down for want of ore was all bosh-or worse. General Price has commenced a cam paign against the Hualspai Indians in Arizona by sending out 250 men in three divisions, to enter their territory by dif ferent points at once. It is hoped they will be able to make clean work this time. Advices from the interior report continued raids by the Apaches in every direction on the ranches and settlements around Prescott and Wickenburg. Stock is ran off and settlers are murdered. A herder of mail stock was killed in sight of Wickenburg and the stock run of The Salt Lake Vedee says: We are reliably informed that arrangements have been perfected for starting, (at as early a day in the coming spring as possible.)a daily or tri-weekly paper at the Sweetwater mines. The printing and mining departments of the paper will be under the management of geotle men of practical knowledge and ezper lense. The Sea Francisco D~epatc says : H.

An exchange informs us that an :,. naut named Thompson, who ascen~ recently from Toronto, descended safe: near this city, the balloon having Lb, taken by a strong upper current acrn, the lakes. Much anxiety was feit :r. Toronto as to Thompson's fate, bVr, the telegram arrived announcing his 4a:, landing. Mr. Thompson gives the Poiow ing account of his adventure: " The balloon ascended at 4.40. a: from the velocity the balloon was tru,. eling at, ljsoon perceived it was fklii to try to descend. It soon becamnnt. dent to me that landing in ('anada wa, out of the question, and that all arrangý ments must be made to be driven across the lakes. The first thing that strut; me was to drop the grappel to the fý' extent, 120 feet. This acted as a guic to the distance the balloon might be ke;.t above the surface of the water, it beiL. now dark, arnd by placing one hard cý the rope the effect of the grapnel stnkirg the water was distinctly felt. W\ith open bag of ballast on my knee, ever\ time the grapnel struck the waterac. pie of handfulls ot sand were thrown ,.; and to, this plan alone I owe my ow: preservation and success. The ball..: taken was about 350 pounds. For thr hours that plan was carried out, art I then came on one of the most drenchiir and merciless rains I have ever felt. I could not see fifteen feet before me, arni the noise of the rain on the balloon a*n the water was such as to entirely uLr nerve me. My hands became numb an. I was drenched to the skin I now tº gan to perceive my position more accu rately, though I determined not to gfie up until all the ballast and niovaui,' were gone. The rain was making :L balloon heavier every moment and !l. ballast was thrown out more freely, t:,; about ten o'clock, when the fatigue over came me. I fell into a stupor for a .,e moments. By this time the balloon had descended to within six feet of the watt r and instantly out went 28 pounds of bal last. The effect of this was that the ba. loon rose to an altitude of a mile, en tirely through the rain clouds, and thrL the moon shone brilliantly, and in thi: position it remained about a quarter ' an hour. The effect of the moon shining on the clouds beneath was such as at. artist might be proud of. The shado. of the balloon was distinctly to Ib sae.r traveling over the rough and unteev clouds, giving the idea of a balloon race Everything now became calm. No longr the hum of the lake or rain. All na still, but whether the storm still rag.: beneath was unknown. As the ballo'r descended, it was evident a change had come over the scene, The rain had cea'vL: and the appearance of everything we. of the darkest hue; whether it was ar. under stratum of dark clouds could n, be known. Suddenly a glimmer of ligL; was seen for a moment; then, with ann ious eyes cast downwards to pelrceri' any object, at last small squares w':i. darker margins were clearly visibl, These proved to be the fields and hiedg' and they appeared to vanish as quickly as objects passed when in an exlrer~ train. A town was at last seen and heard the sound of musical instrumenut, I then called out to know wliero I ,,, but the reply was unintelligible' fTi. however, saw it was a balloon. Albut two miles further on the grapn'l ca:.t;;: in a large oak tree and held fas.t. 'ID,: afterwards proved to be a little villa,' near Cleveland. I then called out luI1t ly; the sounds of persons singing anU playing music were heard. These pro"' to be four young men who had been to a ball. They were natives of (leveland, and as they advanced nearer noy voice was heard. They at once set to work to pull the balloon out of the wHoods and convey it to a field, where it could 1" folded up. It was then three o 'clock in the morning." Challenge.
