From the Bozeman Times. On the 14th inst., near the Mormon church, on Reese creek, John Gray stabbed J. A. Bender in the right shoulder, inflicting a severe wound. Every kind of vegetation is forward and flourishing on the Yellowstone-much more so than on this side of the range. Miller and Roland loaded five pack ani mals in Bozeman on Monday last, and start ed to their mines at Soda Butte gulch, in the Clark's Fork country. A messenger was sent down to Mr. Counu tryman's, at the New Crow Agency, to bring Rich & Willson's train back to Boze man. This is the train that left here a 'ew weeks since to meet the steamer " Yellowstone." The train will go to Ben ton, as the " Yellowstone" was to have lctt St. Louis, on the 10th inst., for that place. From the New North-West. Mr, Orr and his son, who were mining in Brown's gulch near Silver Bow, were slruck by lightning a few days ago. Neither were killed, but the injuries of the lad are quite serious. The Miners' Ditch, owned by Pemberton & Kelley, carrying water from Race Track to Antelope, broke on Wednesday, the 17th inst. It is said to be a treneunduous. break, report stating the whole hillside has slid down and covered the whole country below with flood and debris. The ditch is very large, eighteen miles long, and cost $48,000. The last previous break cost $1,i00 to re pair, and this is said to be ten times as bad. From the Helena Herald. Thursday afternoon the big ditch broke om the hill above the Helena Brewery, and a torrent of water poured down the hillside and in a few minutes completely deluged the lower portion of the building. The walls in the rear of the Brewery are severely damaged, and the front walls are considera bly shaken. Mr. HIorseky, with all the force he could muster, repaired the ditch, and im mediately took steps to secure the building against further loss. IIe estimates the dam age to his property to be about $1,000. The quartz mines at Silver Star have taken a start ahead, and the camp has awakened to new life. From Mr. Wm. Rumsey je learn- O_ the dlestruction by tire, on the 19th inst., at Unionville, of the building known as the old Whitlatch boarding-house. The bmld ing.was, we are told, the first one erected in Unionville, and cost Mr. Whitlatch $4,000. Of course it was not worth near that amount at this time. It could probably be replaced for $2,500. Mr. Chessman denies that the " Big Ditch. broke" and seriously damaged the property of the Helena Brewery, as stated in the Herald of the 19th inst. Several parties in form us that a rock, from afar up the hill, was washed down into the flume, springing a board, which caused a temporary leakage. The break was soon repaired with very little trouble. A valley ranchman tells us that yesterday, (19th inst.) during the rainstorm, the water ran on plowed ground-the earth refusing to receive the excessive moisture. Such an occurrehce has not been known before for eleven years: The waterworks of Helena ceased opera tions for a time yesterday, and the rain com ing down in torrents, put one forciby in mind of the lines of the Ancient Mariner : '' Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink. " From the Benton Record. The steamers Benton and Key West ar rived at Benton on Monday, May 15th. The Key West left Bismarck on the 27th ult. The Benton left Bismarck on the 1st inst. Joseph Coatesworth, of the Key West's crew, was lost overboard near Fort Randall. On Sunday evening May 14, at 7 o'clock, the steamer JCarroll arrived at Benton, 17 days out from Bismarck.
