DIAMOND has been thronged with visitors this week, who were in attendance at the annivetsary balls, and we have received calls from a number or friends whom we wotlld be glad to mention, but on account of the limited amount of space alloted to our local pagdethis week, we are compelled to pass them by. IT IS THE custom, and considered the duty of a journal to make special mention of ad vettisements upon their first appearance, and we are under the necessity of apolo gizing to our friend C. W.

A number of claims in Magpie gulch are proving very rich, a dollet to the pan be Ing no uncommon prospect. Messrs. Coon ey, Canine, Warner and McDonald are among the lucky owners.

EMBrY, of White's gulch, who has been indisposed for some time, is at the Diamond City Hotel, unider the treatment of Dr. Parberry. TUESDAY last the Diamond people were favored with a well relished treat in the shape of a foot-race, Some mloney changed hands. Our friend front over the range was the victor. Gov. POTTs has informed the Commis sioners of the several counties that the Leg islature having failed to make provisisions for the support of the insane of the Terri tory, that it will be necessary for each coun ty to make arrangements for the reception of their own insane. The anniversary of Washington's birth d(ay was celebrated by the Masonic fraternity of Diamond, with a select, social dance. The surrounding country was well repre sented, and the evening was spent in trip ping the light fantastic toe. The supper, we understand, was a superb affair. It was gotten up by the ladies whose husbands are connected with the Order, whom we know have few superiors in the culinary art. Danc ing Was kept up till a late hour, and we are informed the evening wns passed in a most enjoyable manner, by all present. ANNIVERSAR.Y BALL.-Of the many de lighful balls that have been given in Dia mond, never in all its history has there been a more enjoyable affair than that of the Young Men's Anniversary Ball, on Tues day evening, the 22d inst. The attendance was not as large as we have seen on similar occasions in former days, but was just large enough to be pleasant to all the participants, who comprised the most gallant gentle men, and the fairest and most accomplished laidies of the county. All present ap peared to be in.their happiest mood and en tered heartily into the spirit of the occasion. We have not the space necessary to give a detailed description of the costumes and toilets of the ladies and will only state that they appeared without an exception to be especially adapted to the wearers, Kid gloves and unnecessary ceremony were dis pensed with. The supper, by Hampton, of the Diamond City Hotel, was fully up to the necessities of the occasion, and met with ample justice at the hands of the merry par ty who gave it their consideration at 1 a, m. After supper the dancing continued with an increased degree of merriment until after daylight. As the receipts were in excess of the disbursements, the surplus was used by the management in the purchase of apples and candies which were distributed among the company. During the evening, Messrs, Murphy and Rafferty, of Camp Baker; Har ris of the Muscleshell; Richardson, of Duck Creek, and our townman, L. Crandles, fav ored the company with songs, which were well received. One of the most pleasant incidents of the evening was the formation of a Leap Year Set. "Ladies choose part ners for a quadrille! ' It Was not respond ed to with the promptness always displayed by the gentlemen when complying with the same summons. There was quite an inter val before one of the fairest and merriest of the young laidies present, broke the spell which seemed to fall, with the unexpected call of the prompter, upon the entire com pany. Johnnie Lewis was the lucky gent. lIe arose from his seat and, as he accom panied his laughing captor to a position on the floor, we could not help observing how becoming were his blushes. In a short time the sets were formed, and the following were the envied gentlemen and theif re spective partners : J. Lewis, Miss L. E--n; Geo. Lyons, Miss L. P---g; Sam. Higgins, Miss I. P--g; Ben, Kimbe'4 Miss D -n; Dan. Nihan, Miss W- -n ; P. II. Maloney, Miss M. J. S- h ; Henry Ed mondson, Miss R---y; W. Stagner, Mrs. S----r. It was a noticeable fact that the gentlemen composing these sets were ac complished dancers. After daylight the throng dispersed, and thus ended the first National holiday of the Centennial Year in Diamond. There were fifty-eight numbers sold and there were about halt that number of ladies present. For this happy affair much credit is due Messrs. Bump and Doug lass. TERRITORIAL NEWS. F`rom the New North-West. Five hundred and seventy-seven pounds of pure silver-valued at $9,00--the result of one weeks run of the North West mill at Tower, went threw by express on Wednes day. That's business; $1,500 a day from. one tenistamnp mill running constantly on ore fromn one lead and plenty more down stairs isgood enough for any country. Gen eral Nettlettleton informs us some of the ore yielded by mill process over $600 per ton. In reply to an inquiry "if the North West owners were not sick of their investment?" he had not strength enough to say "yes." Col. O'Bannon of the Hope mine was ex pected to arrive Thursday evening with $20,000 in silver bullion from the St. Louis mill. Philipsburg school has appropriated $64 75 and New Chicago school $52 75 for school apparatus. Pioneer will also appropriate soon. There is a decided revival in school matters in this county, largely due to the ac tive and intelligent effort of Superintendent Addison Smith. Frohm the Avant Courier. A party of seven persons arrived here a feW days since from Fort Pease, P. W. Mc Cormick and Taylor Bli ins being among the number. We had a call from Mr. Blivins, and were higly gratified to meet him in the flesh again, having some time since published his demise as the result of a Sioux bullet, but he was only wounded, and will yet live to make some of the dusky warriors bite the dust. He informs us that forty-one men were left in the stockade, a sufficient num ber to stand-off the Sioux. The hostility of the latter, and their frequent incursions in the vicinity of F ort Pease prevented the boys from hunting and trapping to any consider able extent, otherwise they would have done well during the winter in the collection of furs and robes. From the Helena Herald. A special to the Helena Herald, from Boze man, states that a large body of Indians are in the vicinity of Fort Pease, and that an other man named Jessey, had been killed. The County Commissioners are holding a session tor the purpose of providing for the maintenance of the insane, which the Legis lative Assembly failed to do. From the Mtssoullan. Jerry Savage was up from Nine Mile Sat urdlay. He has been engaged in running a drain to the lower patent ground this winter, and says that he has had good prospects ever since he struck bed-rock-prospe cta from which he could pan out wages. Nine Mile will undoubtedly be a better camp next sea son than it was last. A correspondent signing himself "Gow er," writing from Beartown, says: "The opinion is that this will be as good a quartz camp as has ever been struck in the Territory, several rich deposits of quartz having recent ly been struck. It is understood that nego tiations are about to be entered into for the erection of a five-stamp quarz mill. The ex tent and richness of the leads found are not definitely known, but the owners are satis fled, and willing to spend money and labor in their development. Thus far the winter weather has been exceedingly good, milder than it has been for years. Stock men throughout the vallies have not had to feed so far, but should a necessity arise are Well supplied. From the Montanian. From a private letter received in this city from Butte we have been permitted to cull the following: "The good feeling at Butte is steadily increasing. Work is progressing with activity upon the mill, and they are ex pected to start up in about six weeks-one of them, the How mill, in less time. Those who have mines are developing them and getting out ore, and there will be plenty on hand to keep the stamps pounding away for months when they commence. The copper ores are improving, and large quanttiles:have already been taken out, and some sold. You can be assured that Butte is going to aston.ish the natives this sumhmer.
