THE BOULDER.-Basin Gutlch, near the bead of the Boulder, and twenty miles from the Virginia road, has created considerable excite ment recently, a stampede to it having been in operation during the whole of last week. This gulch was discovered by W. R. Williams and five oompanions, and mining was coommenced on It on the 1st inst. Its distance from here is thirty miles, and a number have gone there from this place. Claims have been staked for a distance of seven miles, and between fifty and sixty men are now at work opening their ground, and obtain prospects of from three to ter cents to the pan. It Is from four to nine feet to bed-rock, with from two to four feet stripping. The pay streak, wherever its width has been tested, is from thirty to one hundred feet wide. Messrs. Williams & Co. are already wash ing, and, on last Wednesday, cleaned up Slet?, th e result of a three day's run with six men working. The next claim below them is paying still better The gold is of a coarse nature. One store and a butcher shop have already been established at the new mines. Galena gulch, between Big and Little Boulder, and eight miles to the tight of the Vir. ginia road, is now occupied by about three hnndred men, and is proving good. Two men recently cleaned up ice. for a three days run. Prospects of from ten to twenty cents to the pan are being ob tained- For the above information we are Indebted to Mr. Henry A. Skeels. JEFFERSON (a}IUCH.-Oulr friend R. II. bates informs us that there has been quite an ex. citemont in this gulch, caused by the discovery of rich pay in abandoned ground on the right hand fork of Washington Gulch: Four men proceeded to the ground referred to, and commenced working a claim that was abandoned last summer. On the second day they struck pay and on the third day found a beautiful nugget containing only a very small piece of quartz, and weighing eighteen and three-quarter ounces. The rcrtunate owners of this specimen are Newell & Cc. These newly dis covered old diggings having attracted a consider able number of miners, a new district, called the Mammoth District was foamed, and Andy Rule elected recorder. Nearly all the ground has been taken up. In six dasys Williams & Co. cleaned up eleven hundred dollars. This one* ahandoned s.d re-ocncpied ground is situated about two miles from Jefferson Gulch, and strikingly illustrates the fact that many of the mines of Montuna, that have been declared worthless, may yet yield rich re sults. LOCAL CLIPPINGS.-From the Inde peadent.-A Democratic County Convention was held at Doer Lodge on the 11th instL Among oth er resolutions passed was one telling the citizens of the county that it was their duty to use every available means to accomplish or assist in accom plishing the building of the branch of[J.

The Term Stevens at the Falls of tbe Mlaisouat-A bulelde-Wreck oi the Arneia Pee-The AntelopeAn In dian Attack:-The War Kazle jBena Johnson, Asnes, Penluab, M t. Uhreve, and Octavia-A Criminal Nom. Marshal Featherston, who has. just returned from Beaten, gives us some interesting items of river news. On Monday last, the very light draft steamer Tom Stevens, having on board about fifty passen gers-many prominent ciuizens of Benton among the number--started on an excursion trip to the Falls of the Missouri. It sucoetaded in getting farther up the river than any steamboat has eve done before, and went up above llighwuod. and within six miles of the Falls. Here its pdiogrees was stsyed by rapids, and the malority of the pea sengers went up and paid the great wonder of Montana a visit. Arriving at the Falls, a large body of Piegan Indians were found encamped there, and or these many of the excursionists procured horses, by means of which to return to the boat. The steamer returned to Benton on Thurtday, after a delightful trip, which, in addition to the grand scenery it gave opportunity for viewing, furnished abundant facilities for hunting and fishing. These facilities were well lznprov-ed. The boat took its excursionists the round trip for the moderate sum of ten dollars, so that it was, at least for those stop ping at a hotel, cheaper to travel than to remain sat Renton. On the second night after leaving hentiss, the nook of the boat said that he had had a vision, and that "8tonewall"~ Jackson had called to him, and that he was going to go to him. He did so, taking to the water for his trip, jumped overboard directly after supper, and was drowned. Mr. Featherston Informs us that a small steam. boat is making tripe from Benton to the wreck of the Amelia Poe, and bringing up portions of her carg~o, and that the parties thus engaged will make a nic littte fo'rtune from the wreek. We condense the following from the St. Joe Uioems: Tb. Antelope arrived at St. Joe at noon on the `2 )tlx nit,, and reports the water falling all the way from Benton. Luring her trip down seventeen Indians attacked the boat. The crew fired into them, kill lng one and wound1ing two other.. On her way down she meat the following boat., whose arrival at Benton has not already been reported by us : On the 12th nit, the War Eagle, twenty-fire mile. below Fort Berthold. on the 13th uil., them Ben Johnson, thirty-five mile. below Fort Rice. double tripping from Ash Point, near Big Cheyenne. On the 17th nIt. Agnee, at Bun Homnie Island. The Peninab. Capt. Kounta, from Fort Leavenworth to Fort Stevenson, with government freight. passed St. Jome on her way up on the 10th nit. The H. Mf. Shreve left St Louis on the 20th nIt., loeded with government freight for Fort Stevenson. The 0.: aia arieda St. Joe on the evening of the 20th. in hireeuanda half days from Dentou. She took 'down $150,000O in treasure, a cabin lull of passen gers, and a number of bals of buffalo) cud wolf hides. 'rh parties who had bought the wreck of the Amelia Poe, went down on her, they having been driven off by Indians. Some of the wrecking party had killed one of the Indiane, hsene the hos tility of the savages. At Stevenson the Octavia took on board Win. Barry, the soldtier- who shot and killed Capt. Speer, ofthe British army, on the Oc tavia, on her trip to Bento. last year. Barry was Iturned over to the civil authorities at Randall, and will he tried fur umurder at Yankton. The Miner Ida Stscokdale and Only Ckaae.-iarulnig ofthe Swam Gaty. The Miner, loaded wih supplies for the upper fawts, was due at 8t. Joe on the 2d inst. The Ida Stockdale, loaded with goverunment stores for Fort Stevenson, arrived at Leavenworth on the 3d Inst. The Sam (laty, which attempted a trip to Montana three year. ago, and gave it up after trying all summer, was burned opposite Arrow Rook, while on her way from St. Louis to Omaha, on the 2Pth nit. The Only Chance left Leaven worth for Beaton on the 4')l inst. She was loaded with one hundred tonr of freight for that point, and would recelve one hundred and twenty tons moors for the fortsaloeg the river. She is advertised to leave port Bentoe Serremnber 1st. Messrs Sparks & McPherson are her ageals. LMSTERi LIST'. List of Letts~s remainiu ng ini th ost fO~en at Belies. 31.
