Bismarck, D. T., Aug. 6, 1877.
BRIDE ANE WIDOW. Married Under the Shadow of DestL New1 York Tribune. A strange and somewhat reman tic wedding occurred on Monday, in this city, between two true levers, whom death parted within two hours afier they had been made one. Dr. William E. H. Post made the acquaintance some years ago of Miss Mary H. J-ihord, daughter of the late Edward M:lford, of'this citv. He wooed and won her, and they pledged themselves to become man and wile. The year3 rolled by, but each year only seemed to increase their love. Last Friday Dr. Post was suddenly taken ill with inflarnation of the bowels. The disease rapidly as sumed dangerous symptoms, and on Monday it was plain!? seen he could not recover. When informed of his fa tal malady he expressed a wish to see his intended wife, and, if she were will ing, to become united with her in the bonds of matrimony. She was informed of this wish and consented. Accord ingly, at 5 o'clock on Monday afternoon everything was made ready for the wedding in the room of the bridegroom, at No. 233 West Fifth street. It was a pathetic ceremony. No months of anx ious preparation had been spent for the occasion. There were no brilliant lights, or sweet music, or costly cos tumes. It was simple and solemn. The Rev. Dr. Houghton, of the church of the Transfiguration, was called in to conduct the services, which were only of a few minutes'duration. When the ceremony was concluded, the sick man was nursed as before. Ir. less than two hours the bridegroom was a corpse and the bride a widow. Early Black Hills Kinera. Frott the Cheyenne Leader, July 13. In tha early spring of 1852 Bentiy S. Benedict, then twenty four years of age, was a resident of Morrow county, Ohio, and then it was he joined an expedition boujid for California, overland, com peted of 300 men. Even at that early iiiiie it was reported that there were 4ich goldmines in the Mack Hills. At Fort Laramie a party of thirty detached themselves from the expedition to pros pect that region, it being arranged that they should come on and overtake the main party at Humbolt River. When the expedition arrived at the Humbolt eight of the party of thirty came into camp reporting that the other twenty two had remained behind in the Black Hills, and that they had found rich gold mines there Their reports in regard to the richness of the discoveries were very exciting, and a nnmber wanted to return with them. But the Indians were very dangerous at that time, and a sense of security forced them all to go on through to Galifornra together. None of the twenty-two who remained behind were ever heard of afterward. Mr. Benedict remembers but few com posing the expedition, with their former places of residence but a sufficient num ber have been retained in his memory to enable the investigator to get further important facts, and it is hoped the local press of the points designated will add to the facts above given. A man by the name of Dougla?, of St. Joe Val ley, Michigan, was elected leader of the expidetion, he having before made the trip across the plains, and among them were Joseph McLea'Je, of Delawaiecoun ty, Ohio Thomas Turney, Mount Gil ead, Ohio Brown, St. Joseph county, Mich Jonathan Ingalls, same place, and Leonard Cross and "Dock" Cross, some part of Michigan. There are good rea sons for believing the party of 22 were butchered near where Deadwood now stands, for here were found the grind stone, old sluice boxes, &c. Notable Windfalls. Some people are fond of denying that there is any such thing as "luck," but, be that as it may, there certainly are persons to whom what seems like fortuitous good fortune comes. Col. Green Wilkinson gave a seat in his pew in London to an old gentleman, who left bim $40,000 a year. A young Bos tonian crossed to England three or four years ago, and got into conversation with an elderly gentleman who observed that be found t*iey had the same name. It turned out that they were second cousins. The elder had gone to CaJifor nia in the early days, and made a vast fortune, and entirely lost sight of his relatives. That chance meeting gave the young Bostonian a fortune of be tween two and three millions. Two ladies had a box at the opera in London. An old man oposite bored them dread fully by perpetually "lorgnetting" them. The scene came to an end and they thought no more about him. One day, a year afterward, a solicitor called on one of the ladies, Lady Frances Bruce, and told her that an old gentleman, Mr. W., had left her property worth sev eral thousand a year. "Never heard of the man," she said, "must be a mistake." •'Very extraordinary," replied the solicitor. Suddenly a happy thought struck him. "He lies in his coffin in St. James street, close by, at Banting's, the great undertakers. Will you come and see him?" She went. It was the old lorgnetter. And it. is said that he left it to her under a mistake after all, having intended to leave it to her friend, whom, and not Lady Frances, he admired, but was misinformed as to the names of the ladies. And to give one more, a quite recent instance. A young New xorker went to San Fran cisco to..seek the fortunes which so many have failed to find. He got a poor clerkship and had to be thankful for that. One evening at a place of en. tertmnment be watched a came of cards, saw that an elderly Englishman wis being cheated, exposed the fraud unci had a ius.«le with the cheat. The Eng lishman has presented him with $20, 000 to start bim in bustnes and there is every o.-pect that more are to c«:n-. Forty-Five Tears Ago. A psrty of miner" who have been prospecting in the Big Horn coun fy. found at the headwaters of the Wind river, & nsmc carved a tree with the date 1832 It was a eotton\vi».d trei-, and its appearance indicated a jrowth of about that length of time. Tiie name was so overgrown with bark that but a few of its letters were traceable, the large figure, however, were dis tinctly outlined, bearing the date 1832. That portion of the country is thickly inhabited with beavers, and beaver dams are very plenty. It is supposed that the carving on the tree was the work of some old hunter, and that he was at work trapping beavers. Pres3 and Dakotian, July 3Jth. We are informed by parties who know that there are not less than two hun dred teamsters encamped at and about Pierre, and we give publicity to the statement because there seems to be growing apprehension of danger of an Indian attack upon that isolated com munity. These teamsters are well arm ed and belong to the class of frontiers men who have not much fear of the In dian in their composition.
