' ( F-ilitor Dalit s Herald : Beau Sih Wo are having a most unusual cxcitemiint, hero al present. An old gontlcmon by tlio numo of Gilbert, who is well and favorably known on this 'frontlet'. by most of tho old residents, has boon absont for somo tirao past.but recontly made his appearance with fabulous talcs of gold, diseovorios on tho head-wators of tho Brazos, which ho substantiates by showing somo very fine specimens and rich quartz rock. The natural conse quent is, our citizens have been thrown into a wild state of excite ment, and a strong cqmpany has just boon organized under tho capi- tancy of Col. W. T. Waybourn,(our popular Sheriff,) composed of tho best material old minors and iron tiiTsmon well armed and oquipod, and supplied with all necessary mining tools, etc., and provisioned for thirty days, and prepared to start I ho 20th i-neL. Tho old man Gilbert will accom pany tho party us guide, although 85yen.ru old, and worn from-fatigue and wxposuro, Is busily en gaged with his preparations, nnd is sanguine that now, in his declin ing days, lie has been successful in realizing that which yours of toil nnd wandoring thrutigli the wilds of California and Nevada durinr his long stay thoro failed to securo him. We will inform you of any good results as soon as wo receive intef-. ligenco froni Col. AVuybourn's par ty. Wo are sure that thoy wil) not return vitboat. giving thut region a thorough prospecting, und satis fy thomsolvos to what extent tho mineral does exist. The long taltced of "Wichita Ag ricultural, Mining and Manufuctur ing Company's" advance guard is campod near here, and is taking it ens, eWaiting for tho grass to im prove. Success to it and all otbor honest enterprises. Respectfully, otc.', L.,M.&Co. ' The'death of Richard C. Bird- Tho untimoly end of this unfor tunate young man which occurred in this city night boforo last, was one of poculinr sadness. "For sev eral days past the deceased showed tho most manifest Bigns of libera tion, in his conversation and in the wildglaro which beamed from his eyes.: AU trionds saw too plainlyl for doubt, that tho tomplo of his renson had been desecrated by a dostroyors hand, and that his int ellect was no longer 6tondy, bright and comprehensive. Strange, visions attended him und often in tear In would' shrink from tho upraised hand of an unreal assassin which haunted him with that porsistont presonco so full of horror to- those who are afflicted with such terrible hallucinations.

Every aid which could bo rendered was used to ussuago the excited brain nnd restore it to its former healthy and natural oporntion, bat without avail. At his own request he was qnnrtored in THE JAIL Or THIS COUNTY Whero he experienced some relief from tho imaginary tormentors that haunted him with a hellish horror and drove both, sleep and safety from tho portals of his mind. But this qmot was of short duration. The secure walls, within which ho conceived no harm could enter, compassed his earthly cxistonco, and from them his soul look flight to tho great unoxplored regions that lie beyond therivor of life When ho first ontorod tho jail yard, ho remarked to his friend who was attending him, that he was making his first step to the LCNATIO ASYLUM. But a different" fato awaited him. Friends',' kind arid' true,' watched with him, and did all that sympa thy and skill could suggest to ro- enthrono reason und relievo . tho physical frame ot tho strong mnn bf the groat oxeitomc'nt under which it luborod. Within tho closed door of his room, his lust aot was tho fa tal thrust and cut which opened the portals of life, and set at liberty the imprisoned soul, over which sorrow and a doop shadow hud thrown their blight, making a dismal dark ness whero joyous light onco il lumined every emotion and thought which dwelt within. , . . ,. HE WA8 CONFINED in tho 'south-east room of tho jail building, in which a rude hud und a single chair had beeu plucd fur his comfort, , Before the jailor re tired, he was heard talking at the door in the wild incoherent manner which had enlisted so much for his wolfure, and induced his friends to respect his cautionnry suggestions in having him confinod. , "fester- day morning, however,. ,,, , . . , 1118 L1FELES8 BODY, : .

The wind pipo and both jugular veins were soVcrcd, making a most hor rible and ghastly, display of the work he had dono. On his breast lay the bloody blade with which his quietus had been offoctod, and near-:bys h is hands .were crossod, just as oho who rested well, would naturally placo thorn., . THE CHILLY WINDS' and cold snow which luy upon tho window sills hard v by, gave no soothing offeot to tho bloody trage dy exhibited to tho carious gnzo of the more curious visitors, .who thronged tho jail to see the last of the poor young man, who had un timely ended his own lifo, little rockonlng wiut he was doingas he followed blow with blow against a lifo given by God to fill up with good deeds. .;(' AN INQUEST ON THE BODY was hold, the vordict of which was In accordnnco with tlio foregoing facts.
