SAMUEL ICKES, formerly our village S lacksmith, writes from Fort La;ramie, an er date of Dec. IS: " Please change the ddress of my paper to Deadwood City, Da ota. hi. NYaLSON I~i.i', of HIelena, who has een spending the holidays among his val ey triends, paid his respects to the IIcs ANDEAN office last week-wishing us "a Srppy New Year.". WE are glad to learn that Mr. S. Allen is ell pleased with his developments in the uarz mines on Gold hill. Pyrites recently taken out by him assayed $200 per ton. SOME of the most fascinating young gen tlemen of our quiet town went forth on New Year's day calling upon all the ladles of the city. Though times are a little dull, and business ratler depressed, our town is not devoid of style. Ws understand that sonic of our young f4teds complain of being bull-dozed and intimidated at the dance on the evening of of the 1st, but think it was confined to only a few eases, as we heard one gentleman complain of being entirely too much Lyon ized. W. H. SUTIErnRLIN leaves to-day for a ram ble in the interest of the RocKY MOUNTAIN HUSBANDMAN. lIe i- authorized to receive subscriptions, money, and make contracts for advertising for us. Any assistance rendered1 him by the friends of this paper, will be worthily bestowed. A HORSE belonging to Messrs. Gregory " &tHart, recently fell into a shaft 8 feet deep, b' in Avalanche gulch, and was missing twenty 1 days before being discovered. When taken NI out he was perfectly mad with hunger, but a by careful treatment, was restored to health a again. a THE quartz interests around Diamond are improving. Several claims were re-located on the 1st of January. Certainly, the par ties who were so eager to become quartz 1 kings, as to climb the cold, steep snowy mountains at midnight, will go ahead and develop their newly found treasures. Veri ly, there are better days coming. MucH trouble has been experienced by the people of the Missouri valley, on account of the river crossing being very unreliable and dangerous for several months past, and the people are beginning to feel the necessi ty of a good bridge, and we hope that meas ures may be speedily inaugurated to secure one. MR. A KENT and a party of young men who attended tlhe dance at Mr. Deanzer's hotel, near Camp Baker, on New Year's night, met with a freak of mishaps, but luckily all escaped injury, While pulling their sleigh up on the grade in Cement gulch, one of the horses fell over the bank and tumbled over several times before reaching the foot of the hill. The sleigh, which became detached from the team, jumped, clearing the horse and landing I. the ravine below, uninjured. Wi-aicknowledge a pleasant call on the 1st inst. from Messrs. Henry Goodale and 1 C. W. Cook, breeders of fine sheep of Upper Smith river. They informed us that the ' snow in their neiehborhood has blown away I and their flocks are doing well. WEV would call attention of wool-growers, whose flocks are afflicted with scab, to the remdy published on our Live-Stock page. We know of no instances where it has been u~ed yet, but it is well spoken of by Eastern journals, and it would be well to give it a. trial. It strikes us that it will prove good for " doping" purposes, but it might be rather extravagant, as it would, perhaps, cost fifteen cents per head, unless old ran cid butter could be had low, in which case it might be done for half this sum. Ir is with regret that we learn of the death of our brother editor, of the Avant Courier, Joseph Wright, which occurred at his resi dence in Bozeman, I)ee. 29. Capt. Wright has been connlcted with the press of Mon tana for eight years. Ile was an able writer and did good service when his health would permit. IIe had many warm friends throughout Montana who can but feel a deep sorrow at his melancholy end. Mn.. ClHARLES COTTER, of Lewis and o Clarke county, visited our town last week. o MIr. C. is one of the lucky owners of rich b quarts mines in the notorious Temple Dis- g trict. IIe spoke in the most flattering terms I of the quartz in this district, some of it lb yielding as much as $14 to the pound of ore. r One of his leads, which is pretty well devel- r oped, was only fifteen inches wide at the f surface, is full five feet in width at the depth of 150 feet. Mr. C. and his partners has been working a considerable quantity of 1 quartz from a 70 toot level in this mine in I arastras, none of which paid less than $75 per ton. THE people of Diamond-little, big, old, young, married and sihigle-met at Good Templars' hall on New Year's evening and enjoyed a social "hop." Everybody seemed to lay aside needless formalities, and went in for a good dance and plenty of it, and judging from the merriment that rang through the hall, they had it. Certainly it was the gayest dance we have attended this year. Leap year was gone, and our bache lor friends, or as many of them as could call their hearts their own, made a grand onset as if determined that another leap year should not find them "wanting." Our be witching belles wore the same roguish ex pression in their eyes as ever, and did not seem a bit sorry that the old year was gone. e Perhaps their selections are made. Dancing r was kept up until a late hour, and all; went I away satisfied. BEING desirous of furnishing our readers in with the choicest reading matter of the day, le we are making arrangements with all twe ec best publications in the United States by A which we can furnish them in connection sI with the ROCKY MOUNTAIN HUSBANDMAN at p a much less rate than they can be had from si any other source. We have already made ft terms with a number of leading journals, .o and are able to make the following unpar- ' alleled offer: o We will furnish the IUSBANDMAN and c American Stock Journal, a No. 1 monthly, d published at Parkersburg, Pa., at the ex treme low price of $4.65 per annum. The HUSBANDMAN and Rural New Yorker, I an old and ably edited farm, family and news paper, compiled at great expense and handsomely illustrated, for only $6.00. The IHUSBANDMAN and Scientific American, the leading scientific journal ot the United States, for $6.70. The HUSBANDMAN and Demorest's Illus trated Monthly. with a choice of the follow ing superb 17x26 inch cromos: "After the Storm," " Home, Sweet Home," " The Old Oaken Bucket," and "''he Captive Child ;" 1 or a choice of eighteen other valuable and s useful articles. Every article offered is of s the first quality, and' any one worth at least t half the price of subscription to the two J papers. The cromos, taken from celebrated t paintings, pocket cook stoves, system of k dress cutting, which received the highest 'e centennial award; silver plated ware of all i, kinds, stationery, linen marker, etc. The i, two publications and any one of the above J; articles for $6.00.

A'live, wide awake by Territorial farm, live-stock and family news paper, with either of the above well known and valuable periodicals, for the usual price paid for our Territorial weeklies. Read these inducements to your neighbors, and ask them to subisribe. Wi7 HAD the pleasure of attending the nuptials of Miss Lena E. McFadden and Mr. Lester D).. Ballard, at "Le Bo cage," the residence of the bride's parents, a near Centerville, which cam:une oft on the 27th p ult. We have attended many weddmings, but none have excelled this in enjoyment. The spacious mansion was well tilled with guests, 1 the friends of the fitnily who had gathered from the valley and the various mining camps in Meagher and Jefferson counties. The bride looked unusually beautiful and queen-like. She was simply though elegant t ly attired in a white swiss, cut en train, the skirt handsomely trimmed with kilted plait r ruffles, and a white satin basque. On her bo som she wore a full-blown white rose. A rich cluster of curls encircled her brow from I which her heavy suit of hair swept back and was caught up ini loops over the crown, and * tell in a loose, massive braid to her waist, d over which was carelessly thrown a wreath ot orange blossoms, with a veil which fell h back to the floor. Iler step was firm though s- graceful, and her countenance beamed with 15 happiness. The bridegroom wore a suit of it black cloth, was perfectly self-possessed and e. made a very manly appearance. The bride 1- maids. no less lovable than the bride, looked exceedingly beautiful. Miss Ella Rosen baum wore a white swiss, of the same style of the bride's, except a pink silk basque 1Her hair, like that of the bride, swept care-. lessly back from her noble brow, ricochetted over the crown, and fell between her shoul ders. Miss Lizzie Fink was attired in a handsome white alpaca, very stylishly made up and trimmed with pink. She too was charming. Her, wealth of dark hair was thrown back in tangled waves, and like that of Miss R., floated down her back iu a loose, careless braid, bound at the end with a sim ple white bow. The groomsmen Messrs. D. P. Rankin and J. II. Freeser, were each at tired in black, and made a good appearance. The ceremony, by Rev. H. .S. Clark, was very impressive. His words of admonition were kind, pointed and full of wholesome advice. The supper was a grand feast, and gave abundant evidence of culinary skill. Turkey, chicken, ham, beef, pies, cakes, etc., were in great quantity and variety; in fact, everything that could be procured calculat ed to tempt the palate, was there in great abundance. There were about seventy per sonls in attendance, and all seemed to enjoy themselves to the fullest extent. The even ing passed off very pleasantly. It uemg leap year, every lady seemed a self-appoint- 3 ed committee of one to make a conquest. As to whether their rights were as well re. spected as they should have been we are not prepared to say, but not a few, we are as sured, were sorely tempted. Some have fallen victims to woman's capriceAperhaps, or have endangered the ownership of a "gray horse." Conversation went merrily on until 3 o'clock a. m., when those' of the cent pany who did not remain over night, dispersed to their homes. In the afternoon of the following day, the bridal party and friends proceeded to the residence of the bridegroom's parents, and partook of an other sumptuous repast. If a cordial wel come would make a person happy, certainly the company on this occasion were, for Mr. and Mrs. Ballard understand how to make one feel at home it any one does. The sup per given by these good people, was all that could be desired. Meats, fowls, sweetmeats, fruits and confectioneries in great quantity and variety burdened the table. Having spent a few hours very pleasantly at Mr. Ballard's, the party accepted an in vitation to call at 'Mr. Carpenter's, about f a mile and a half distant, where they re t mained until midnight, dancing and gaming. > Noticeable among the occurrences at the I last named place was a leap year set, which f was composed principally, at least of the ,t youth and maidens, it not the chivalry and 11 beauty, of the company. When all had en e oyed themselves to their heart's content e they departed with a feeling that it Is not e ood for man or woman to be alone, when - there in one to love, and to delight in their society. BRASSY-SMITII.-In II elena, I ecember 26th, by Rev. E. L. Toy, Mr. Edward Bran., of Dia mond City, and Miss Reciua Snuth, of 1,l Dorado Bar. '' Across the threshold led, And every tear kissed off as soon as shed, His house -he enters, there to be light Shining within, when all without is night; A guardian angel o'er his life presiding, Doubling his pleasure, and his cares dividing! We extend to the happy pair our congratulations and a cordial welcome to Diaminnd, the former home of the bride, May their lives be long and fruitful of good works, and their companionship, as they journey on through life's uneven way, be pleasant and happy, and not a doubt, regret or cloud ever cross the threshold of their love-lighted': home.
