I am authorized by gentlemen abundantly able to fulfil it, to make the following proposition, provided such an arrange-I mient can be legally effected, of which I have but little, it any, doubt. The pro posal is: That a company of gentlemen will, within twenty days from and after the date when Congress assents to the pro position, pay into the Treasury of the United States the sum of *10.000.000 in gold for the Territory of Alaska; these gentlemen taking the fee simple there. for and leaving the right of eminent do main in the government of the United States. So it appears if the government desires Sspeculate and pocket $2,:300,000 by the operation the opportunity is now Iown. P~erhaps the recollection that California was considered and declared valueless at the time of its purchase, and has since added $2,000,000,000 to the wealth of the country may influence Congress to hold on for an advance in north west real estate. tit ~t~l-ate to ongrss. tf&.sreard st1yfliere. subetldfct t.

That the inhabitants of cities and towns upon public lands of the United States, might be afforded opportunity to pre-empt or purchase and secure full titles to their property, the Congress of the United States passed a bill,approved July 1st, 1864, giving them authority in dividually to procure titles from the (ieneral Land Office at Washington. In a subsequent act, approved March 2d, 1t867, corporations, or, in towns not in corporat~ed. Probate Judges, were em [powered, under the rules and regula tions prescribed by the Legislatures of the several States and Territories, to en ter at the proper Land Office, at the minimum price, and hold in trust for entry and purchase at public sale by its occupants, land thus occupied. This was intended to expedite entry and the issue of U. S. titles to citizens. 'U nder it, the Legislature of Montana passed an act, approved Dec. 12, 1867, "relative to tuie pre-emption of Town Sites upon public lands and the disposal of trusts created thereby." As Helena has made further progress under this act than any other town in the Territory, it may be inter esting to those following in her footsteps to know what progress she has made; and the present situation and prospects. Nineteen hundred and twenty acres have been entered by the Probate Judge. This, when divided into lots of 4,200 sq1uare feet each, makes nineteen thous and nine hundred and seventeen lots. For each of these, claimants must deposes it with the Prof ate i idge $10, and pay himu `4 additional for a deed. This, if all the lots were entered or purchased, would amount to the nice round sum of >sJbesides w~iicii he receives the' same fees in contested cages as aliowed in Justice's courts. (Of this, hie is au thorized to (deposit :.1l99,170 with the County Treasurer, and there the law stops, making no provision for the se- I curity of such deposits, or their further disposition. Of course no one would oliject to that. The lawv also restricts each claimant to the entry of two lots: and although he bad improv ements val ued at thousands of dollars on a third,I there is no saving clause to prevent an outside party from jumping the lot, and throwing it into expensive litigation, if Inot wresting from him the title. This, although the (ieneral Land Office under the provisions of the former act was specific in instructing that when im provements had been made on other than two lots, the D)epartment would take care that no such interests should suffer by the intrusion of an adverse claim, or purpose to p~urchase to the prejudice of the owners of such inter ests. The U. S. Town Site law, contem plated the public sale of lots, but the Legislature of Montana made no pro-. vision whatev-er for such sale, and the fulfillment of what has been commenced is to give into the hands of the Probate LJudge the title for 19'20 acres of ground in and imniaediat-ly about Helena,whicb no one can pre~-empti unless maaing alH% davit that hie actually "possesses and occupies such lots," or "that the right to such occupation is in the claimant, if, such lot or lots are occupied by anoth er." He must pay $10 for the lot he oc cupies, but in no portion of the act is any provision made by which a party can pre-emnpt or purchase any one of the 19,91: lots now surveyed, unless it is acc. ually possessed and occupied. If lie fails to do these within six months after the publication of the notice of entry, the statute bars any further claims, ac tually thereafter turning the unoccu* pied lots of Helena out to grass, while the Probate Judge holds the title to the pasturage. This is a pleasant feature 'of the bill- -for stock owners. Thus we have a Town Site act conflicting with the intent of the United States act; paving the way for trouble and inter minable law suits; giving the money of its citizens up to individuals, without specifying to what purpose it should be devoted, further than paying the expenses of survey, etc.; stifling itself and all entries under it in six months ; building a statutory fence about the present occupied town lots, and prohib-. iting further purchase; and finally leav' Ing the surveyed site with a heavy in terest accumulating on the expenses, and the Probate Judge caught up by Its pro visions, not, if he wishes to evoid the serious consequences it would untail, daring to proceed further than he has now gone. And no town is Montana oould do better. The act is the most horrible hung!e imaginable; rety e~tplleat oil minor points, yet entirely ucgIvct lug or injuriously deteuxnlaI~g 'thoise more important, and leaving. prop. erty holders who delre titles to their lots very much in the sine.&km at Ussusan who drew the aeleaalt. Ti reaponsiblity of this act and others equally prejudicial, rests wholly with the democracy. It is more than thej can bear. The republicans of Montana generously propose to assume a portion of the responsibility of next winter's Legislation wnd have nominated for the Legislature `n the various counties, law yers of experience and ability ; business men with practical ideas, and property owners who will give attention to legis lation. It requires some effrontery for democratic candidates to ask to be re turned, but they have it, and it Is the duty of property owners to see that bet ter legislators are sent in their place on the 3d of September, if they do not de sire to be swamped In law suits, and de prived of their just rights. Business men do not employ irresponsible and unsafe persons, simply because they are of the same party, and having tried their servants once and found them unfaith". ful; even Democrats will scarce be so blind to their interests as to endorse them at the polls, and send them back again to endanger their property by such ruinous, and stupid or corrupt legisla tion. THE FIRST COuNCIL DISTRICT. The Platform adopted by the various Union Republican Conventions of Mon.. tansa have the ring of true metal. They betoken an intense earnestness in sup porting men who represent the manly noble, and p~atriotic resolves of the plat Iform adopted at Chicago. and a deter mination to redeem Montana from the reproach brought upon it by Demo. cratic officials and Democratic legisla tion. There is no half-way, milk and water,pusillanimity in their declarations;! there is no stabbing the party in the back by half assent to some of its prin ciples and a denuncaition of others. Trhat cowardly, skulking cut throat, fratracidal meanness has no sympathy, encouragement, or endorsement in the Republican ranks. The platform of the Maio ounty Republicans furnished the POST by the Secretary, and which we publish in another column, is not only a worthy endorsement of worthy princi . pie ad mnbut a model of high re solv andeloquent expression, and we recommend it to the consider ation of our readers. Dr. Leavitt, the nominee for Council is one of the best citizens of the District, and Iwill faithfully represent its interests. The selections for the House in both Beaverhead and Madison, will call forth the full strength of the party and should stimulate our friends to unremit ting effort for success. As opposed to the knock kneed Democratic ticket in Madison the Republicans should run ahead two hundred at least, while Bezaverhead is good any day for the election of every Republican named. The situation in the 1st Council District, is defined and the Republicans are mass ters of it. In the certainty of success it is gratifying that able, honest and true men have been named for the various offices. Nothing but a lethargy that would be inexcusable, ca'n prevent their election, and we hope that with a quick, sharp, rattling, earnest campaign they will drive the Democracy to their holes, and enable us to publish two counties at least where~ every man on the Republican ticket was elected by a big majority. EMANUEL LEUTZE DEAD. The telegrams announce the death from apoplexy, of Emanuel Leutze, one of the most gifted artists of this country or the world. He was born in Gmuud, Wurtemberg, in 1816, and came to Ainar ica in childhood, his parents residing in Philadelphia, where his talents for draw ing first found employment while at. t~ending at the sick bed of his father. His first successful picture was the rep resentation of an Indian gazing at the letting sun, now so familiar in its infbi tude of reproductions on wood and stea. His success enabled him to visit the san schools and galleries of Europe, where he attained much celebrity as an hister ical painter, but his American fate rests principally upon a series of ids torical paintings of Revolutionary events, the principal of which is "Wash. ington crossing the Deleware."~ lie re turned to the United States in 1859, and we believe painted the magnificent fresco in the Capitol at Washuington, illustrative of Bishop Berkely's familiar utterance, "Westward the star of is- pire takes its way." He is lost to Art while in the very zenith of his fame, v l those fortunate enough to poass.s eat. Ivas which his skillful hand has imbueA with almost life, will prize it the moo highly that the brush and palett.Il> idle by the easel, for the light of gealue has faded fromn the studio-the inmats toadeed. THIE JU]DGHIIU. The telegrams of last night report the confirmation of II. L. Warren and If. Knowles as Justices of Montana. We are also informed the Deerset Newr of Julv, 17, contaaied a telegram statitg the confirmatioa of L. P. WIUiWa.. This would make a fall bench of je Judges, but the dispatches, as yet, are indefinite. Mr. Knowles is of KeokLk low.a, formerly of Nevada, and a mrdMea s team timr i Der Lodge, the ·M' of which place it ie M. analra iaskd isl appoiatment and weasC*tlsh.

THE CONVENTION AND ITU WOftK. In another column we present the proceedings of the Lewis and Clarke County Convention. The platform adopted, and ticket nominated meets with our hearty approval, and, with whatever ability we have, will maintain the one and labor for the election of the other. Having for six months had the name of U. S. GIrant for President, at the head of our columns, and en Idorsed the Chicago platform fulIy from ita adoption, the unqualified declaration, in their favor by the Convention is grat ifying assurance, that the platform has ao " objectionable features" in the eyes of Montana Republicans ; that it is not r egarded as a " sectional ticket," and is a stinging rebuke to those recreants and sore heads who have sought to bring confusion and disaster to the party in Moatana. Although the Convention neglected to censure those heretofore reputlican journalists, who have public ly and repeatedly proclaimed them selves " entirely independent of all~ political parties in tho Territory," and who lave asserted that it was "their firm lulief that the drawing of political party lines by the people of Montana was uncalled for, unwarranted and emni nently Injudicious," we are disposed to cossider it an inadvertancy, caused by linited time and the multiplicity of Iwhat was considered higher duties de volving upon it which they so " unani mcosly" and'" enthusiastically" disposed of. We do not consider it necessary to inividuslize the n.'rninees at this time.! Tb. choice for the council, house and: suhordinate county offices will meet with the heartiest support from the Re publicans of this District and County. So far as wve are acj uainted with them,, and as we are iniformed by others, they are men of ability, good character, in- 1 tegrity, undeviating Republicanism and personrl popularity, and in urging their electiot. the people of Lewis and Clarke. e. are confident we have a' tiktw:thy of most earnest support, aud that i-ill commend Itself to trium ppat lketonon the 3d of September. _nte action o the County Convention In condemning I. eoned et of tba Ex ecut~ive Board of the Territorial Coin mittee, and resolving to request the Committee to call a Territorial Conven tion, in failure of which the maid County Committee of Lewis r.nd Clarke county,: are instructed to call the convention Sanyhow, the County Convention on a Saturday, we believe did more than its Scool judpnient would approve, inasmuch as a moremen t of that character would fseem tc require that the instances of t, misconduct of the Executive Board~ ashould have been specified, or, at the Sleast some, ease shown where its action rhas created " dissension and distrust in rpour sinks "We are confident that all fair ii'nded, honest Republicans, who, hav, been inflexibly true to the princi plea of the party, demand that its rep reuentatives should be able at all times to ~recent a clear record, and would un hesitatingly condemn any known action hontheir part, prejudicial to the welfare aid Interests of the Republican party e of Montana-and that is right. But we *~el also assured that the same consis lency and principles ; that innate sense I~nd recognition of manhood, justice and ulght,which we as American citizens, s and members of the Liberal party of ,, tis country, do, or at least should, powssess, would prompt quick condemnar. tion of a movement and its originators, P. m.ri~.e ftnd ah.~ttnru that wnnld AT~ant* without ~a hearng ; owith officially envenomled tome, arm slander, for its evil work where no cause for re-i proach K as shown. In view of the fact that the Territorial Central Committee was elected by delegations from the several counties of Montana ; that they choes their Executive Board, consisting of Ueorge M. Pinney, Henry Thompson and T. C. Jones ; that ithe campaign under their management was conducted with vigor, and the Democratic majority made less than ever before in Montana, and that the committee never expressed displeasure with the Board -it seems that this action should have been sub ssantlated by the best of evidence, ore a series of resolutions of that character were passed, even if it was within the province of the convention. More than this there were forty-Ave delegates called to the convention, and thirty-six were present ; while less than one-third voted for thlese resolutions. We are satisfied from this, and the sense of right which Republicans possess, that with the least consideration, neither the convention or the party would endorse any such action; that It was precipitated upon the convention ; rushed through by lnterested parties. from Improper tives and for evil purposes, and that as it stands on the records, it Is a dis prace to the Republican party. This Is not alone our view but that of all Re pubieans, and they are many eho we have heard speak of It. We hope hmiwver that whatever feeling there may be In this matter will be subordin ate to a united and vigorous effort to es the persons nominated by the Con. vesuiom and when that has been ac MesmNUi'e4O s se the great object, these bt aaoe, aab dispoesd of with eat preudc to the party.

At fourteen several times since the framing of the original constitution and its final ratification and adoption as our great governmental bond, March 4 1789, it has been found necessary to amend that instrument, "in order to form a more perfect Union. establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the gen eral welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity." Not the least important of these is the last. It was originally dmafted by Mr. Sterens, and submitted to the House April 30th, 1867. It passed, yeas 128, nays 37 ; was amended in the Senate June 8th, by a vote of 33 yeas to 11, nays; again returned to the House and as amended passed June 13th, by a strict party vote, yeas 13b. nays 36. It was fowarded to the Secretary of State, and by him submitted to the Governors of the several States, for ratification or rejection by their several Legislatures. President Johnuon, as usual, sent in a Smessage of disapproval. It was how ever quickly ratified by the requisite three fourths of the States then repre sented in Congress, and it was held by eminent Statesmen that that ratification Irendered it a portion of the Constitution. The question was agitated in Congress but no definite action taken, and in February 1868, Democrats having in the meantime acquired the ascendancy in those bodies, the Legislatures of Ohio, and New Jersey, in which States the amendment had been previously ratified, passed resolutions rescinding the ratifi.. cation and asking the return of the papers from the office of the Secretary of State. Mr. Seward declined, and the opinion of the highest authorities given that the ratifications could not be with [drawn from the State Department. No further action has been taken, until with the re-admission of the Southern States under the reconstruction bill, the amendment has been ratified by three fourths of all the States and it iý offi. cially declared a portion of the Consti tution of the United States. Although n, ha. nin wis), strenuous part, oppositicn and some delay has occurred, it has been ratified in half the time, by far larger majorities, and with less pop ular and legislative opposition thau was the original Constitution, wvhic'x was not ratified by the requisite two-thiirds, until two years after its submission to the States; somie of the Legislatures not ratifying it until a year and more later. Whatever may be the party oppxusition to the fourteenth amendment, it is un deniably founded upon the new order of things that had their birth in the slave holders' rebellion. Both parties have declared that slavery is dead ; that rebellion was a crime and a failurs ; that Ithe debt of the nation must bc paid. IThis is the groundwork of the amend-. ment, and when objection to it will no longer make party capital, democracy will acknowledge its justice, recognize Its necessity, and-deny they ever op posed it. The amendment now incor porated as a portion of the Constitution Iis as follows : AuTicLEa xiv. SEC'TION 1. All persona born or naturalised in the United States and subject to the juris diction thereof are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citisuens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without dlue process of law, nor de ny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law. Sic. 2. Representatives shall be appor tioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persona in each State, excluding Indiana not taxed. But when the iigat to vote atmyection for the choice of fElectors for Preidnt ndVice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congrees, the exec utive and judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature threof is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State being twensy-one years of age and citizens of thae Unie dtates1 or* in any way abridged, except for partacipation in rebellion or other crime the basis of representation therein shall e reduced in proportion which the num ber of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one vears of age in such State. Sac. 3.

The Daily POST is presented this morning, enlarged. This has been con templated for some time, but was de layed by the detention of the Steamer Silver Lake, on which the POST material was sli pped. The encroachment of advertis.ments on the space devoted to reading matter has compelled the pro curance of paper a few days in advance of the arrival of our material from Benton. The POST will be continued the present size until, with the arrival ot additional supplies now ordered, it will be still further enlarged, and pre sented in a new dress. Publishing for some months the most diminutive sheet in Montana, on a poor quality of paper ; our old typos all returning to the States, and their places not fully supplied, we have labored against adverse circumn stances, regretted but unavoidable. For the generous patronage extended, con tinued, and rapidly increasing, we are indebted to the good will of our friends, and a charity " To all our virtues very kind, To all our faults -a little blind." The circulation of the Weekly POST, the pioneer paper of Montana, has in creased nearly five hundred copies since our removal to Helena ; has a large; dir. culation than any paper in the Territo. ries, and we speak that which we know in saying the circulation of the Daily POST largely exceeds that of any other Daily in Montana. Not desiring to enter the arena of Gasconade, to con tend for its bauble prizes of vanity and conceit, we leave our readers to " judge the tree by what it bears." If we can add to its interest or merits, it will be seen in fulfillment, not heralded by oft repeated promises. We gratefully ac knowledge the confidence, good words and liberal patronage has extended to the paper, and hope its enlargement and future conduct will meet with ap nroval. THROWING OFF TUB YOKE. A train of 23 wagons, filled with Jo sephite familes (anti-polygamist Mor mons) left Malad valley, and the Mor m May 23d, boutid for Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois. They reached Chey enne safely, July 8th. The Leader says : "They assert that the portion of those who acknowledge Brigham are not true Mormons but Brighamites ; and that he is Dot a true prophet, or the legitimate successor of the Church ; but an imposter who, in the name of the Church, makes arbitrary laws for his own worldly advancement and gain." The following is an extract from a let ter addressed by the Captain of the train to the editor of the Leader. JOSEPHITE EMIGRANT TRAIN, I Cheyenne, July 8, 1868. c "We are often asked where we are from, and where we are groing :in an swer to which questions please say for us, we are from the land of Brigham's oppression, and that we are seeking homes where we may enjoy civil and religious liberty. We have long ex' pended our time and labor, and ex hausted our energies in enriching the so called President of the Mormon church, and have at length determined to leave that fountain head of falsehood, and endeavor to establish homes where our earnings may be applied to making ourselves and our familes comfortable, and providing our children with liberal educations. Believing Brigham Young to be wrong, and having faith in good results of our honest convictions and purposes, we left Deseret, and now find ourselves in a land of equal civil and re ligious liberty." WX. WOODHEAD, Capt. of Train of Josephites. P. S.-D~eseret News and Salt Lake Telegraph please copy. W. W. WHAT IT corT. We notice the Demi-Joh noon pac pers refer to the expenses of the im peachment trial as approximating to millions, and the same highly figurativ e language has been used by Democratic stumpers in Helena at their meeting in ratification of the impeachment, Sey mour, the bond candidate, and the sec tion of the New York Platform declar ing the Rebellion is dead, which ex Gov. Vance a sterling Southern demo crat says is a lie. It may not be amiss to quote the remarks of Sen~ator Cragin in offering an amendment to the ex pense bill providing, $8,000 or no much thereof as might be ceceasary for the expenses of the trial. We quote from the (4lobe of .July 2d. He said : " I desire to state that heretofore Con gress appropriated $10,000 to pay the expenses of the President. This amend ment proposes $0000 more. The entire expenses of the impeachment, including witsesses~ furniture, printing, and the fuss of omsees for summoning witnesses will uot'~esed $10,000, and will prob ably bafl a lithe short of that amount ; but it is memmary that something more should be appropriated. I wuake this statement in relation to the expenses of the linpeaehinmat trial, and hope Sen ators will hear what I say, that the en . tire expenses will not exceeded $16,000.
