The New York £un says of the statement that Jenny Lied had been blessed iiknernity at the age of 55 rears: "Thisabsuriii.tiitciue.il has arisen from a letter written,by Jenny Lir.il some twenty rears ego, going the rounds of the papers without a date. Jenny Lind has been living at llcchampton, Surrey, for many years. As most people are aware not one woman in perhap3 twenty millions has a child at the age of 56! In fact, the famous Doug las case mainly turned on the impossibility oi Lady Jane Heard having a chi Id at 52." An exchange mentions the President's personal effects as follows: One bran new war with Mexico, two flourishing Indian campaigns, one petty quarrel with Spain, several post office rows and custom house fights, and a big party tus sle generally, but we predict that he is capable of disposing of all this property at a profit for Uncle Sam. "He serves his party best who serves his country best." Dr. Bentley and Mr. S. A. Robertson, both experienced newspaper men, will assist Col.

Col, Lounsberry, for the next month, will devote his attention to the business interests of the concern, princi pally to collections. The Indian War. After his battle with Gen. Gibbon. Jo seph pushed rapidly across the country in the direction of the Big Horn, and couriers have been sent to Gen. Miles with dispatches warning him of Joseph's movements. Eight companies of the 2d cavalry have been ordered from the de partment of the Platte to reinforce Gen. Miles and it is believed he will be able to clean out the'Indians even if they are joined by Sitting Bull. The British au thorities, however, are hopeful that Sit ting Bull may be induced to return to his agency, and the commission headed by Gen. Terry was appointed at theft- re quest The commission will not offer any terms to the old scalper, however, which do not contemplate a complete surrender of arms, ponies, etc., and a re turn to his agency. Gen. Sturgis witfc 6ix companies of the 7th Cavalry left Tongue River on the 12th to intercept Joseph. The com panies of Moylan, Hale and Godfrey, were left behind and were ordered to burn the prairies with a view to destroy ing subsistence for the Indians. It is believed at Tongue River that Sitting Bull will attempt to join Joseph. Sitting Bull recently attempted to shoot Culbertson, an American sccut, and was ordered across the line in consequence by Major Walsh, of the Mounted Pplice. "British butchers are mad as hornets over the arrival of American beef, but still their customers continue to remark, 'Hill take hanother steak hoff that Hamerican hox.'" And well they may, for American b#ef can be furnished in England at two thirds tfee price which has been charged for English beef. A little over a year ago the experiment of shipping dressed meats to England in vessels containing refrigerating compartments,was inaugur ated. It has been a greater success than its most sanguine friends anticipated. Cattle on foot are also successfully ship ped, and the result is it is revolutionizing the English market. But we wish to speak of the result at home and its effect on our interests. The benefit to our stock raisers is already apparant from the increased activity in the markets, and it is hard to say where English de mand will stop. To say the least it is already huge in its proportions, with only a years' trial but we have the fa cilities to furnish them in any amount We have taken a good deal of pains recently to look up this stock business, as it directly interests the citizens of Bis marck, while the country immediately about us is a good stock country and will yield splendid returns to all engaging in it, yet the particular point to which we wish to call attention is that this new ly created English demand for American meats may be the means of opening up a trade between this point and Montana which will be simply immense. We have taken pains to gather information from every old Montana resident we could find, and all unite in declaring the valleys of Montana to be the finest gra zing country in the world. Cattle and sheep live out all winter without a par ticle of feed other than they get them selves, and come out in the spring rolling fat. This is no fancy picture, but is sub stantiated by every old resident and the army officers who have been stationed there, and, more than this, the quality of meat from Montana cattle is universally admitted to be superior to any known. A few droves have come into our market already, and no finer beef cattle have ever been here. As an illustration ot the superiority of Montana cattle: A gentle man, residing in Minneapolis who had a VOL. 5. BISMARCK, D. T., MONDAY, AUGUST SO, 1877. NO. 33. large beef contract at Fort Garry,started a lot of beef cattle from there, the very best he could get, and considered them No. I, in all respects, but on arriving at Fort Gary, where they came into compe tition with Montana cattle, was surprised to have them rated No. 3, while the Montana stock was rated No. i. We wish to call the attention of our citizens to this fact, that there is an im mense trade in cattle sure to spring up with Montana, and the question is, will our citizens, to whom it legitimately be longs, prepare themselves to control it, or let it slip from our hands. It is bound to grow into a huge business and a per manent one, while in any event we shall receive great benefits from the reshipping here yet the control of the trade legiti mately belongs to the GATE CITY to Mon tana. We need wholesale houses to change goods for Montana cattle. We need capitol enough to buy all that comes and 6end them over the Northern Pacific to the markets of the world, and there will be no trouble in selling Mon tana cattle—they will stand first in the market. We need stock yards of large capacity. We expect to see this business com menced next year, and see stock trains leaving Bismarck for Chicago and New York, and within five years we expect to see a trade built up which will make for tunes for those engaged in it quicker than quartz leads. So Mr. Johnny Bull can have just as many steaks "hoff that Hamerican hox" as he wants, and much cheaper than it can be produced in Great Britain. Agricultural Meeting. We have just been shown a letter from Hon. Wm. S. King, of Minneapolis, to Col. Thompson, inviting the people of this vicinity to send samples of their ag ricultural products and other Western curiosities to the exposition or fair to be held at Minneapolis on the 3d day of September next, with assurances that a department would be reserved for them and that the transportation of such sam ples would be free of charge. This reminds us that no effort thus far has been made by our citizens to organ ize an "Agricultural Society" in Burleigh County, now fast becoming the great center of Dakota's agricultural impor tance. Under the circumstances this neglect is wonderful. It has been too well dem onstrated to admit of doubt that in all respects we have an advantage over any other portion of the new Northwest agricultural pursuits. Our climate and soil is better while our home market, both present and prospective, is far su perior to any other portion of the Great West In the future, Bismarck—with out an equal for its age—will be among our largest cities, furnishing a market for all the surplus ot our surrounding agri cultural products. In view of these facts, to aid in the set tlement of the country, to encourage and harmonize agricultural and stock grow ing interests and to take such measures as may be necessary to exhibi*- samples of our present products at the coming exposition at Minneapolis as well as those of the future on all fitting occasions at expositions and fairs of our own we res pectfully suggest that all of our citizens and especially those engaged in agricul tural and grazing pursuits, meet at the Excelsior Hall or Court House, on Fourth St, on Saturday the 26th inst, at 4 o'clock p. m., for the purpose of organizing an agricultural society.

BY TELEGRAPH. Special to the Bismarck Tribune. HAYES IN VERMOXT. ST. PAUL, Aug. 18.—The President and party are meeting with enthusiastic receptions and greetings in their trip through Vermont. Immense crowds assemble at stations to greet him. The President is to-day the "guest of Sec'y Evarts and will remain there until Mon day, and then visit the White Moun tains. COLLIERS?

The Russians will not undertake further operations un til the whole guard arrive from StPeters burgh, which will not be in less than two or three weeks. THE PRESIDENT and party are still enjoying the hospital ities of the old Green Mountain State, meeting with* enthusiastic receptions everywhere. At Windom on the night: of the 18th, the President addressed a: large audience, telling them of aj visit he had made them just 43 years ago,! when he was a lad of eleven summers. Hayes family had come to Brattleboro 100 years ago. His grandfather was a blacksmith and was cordially welcomed at that early day. Sec'y Evarts and Key also made neat addresses, which were received with great applause and were followed by Attorney General Devens and William Hunt, of-Louisana. Next: week the party will visit the old Granite State. BLACK HILLS FIRE. Gayville, two miles from Deadwood, was on the morning of Aug. 18, entirely de- stroyed by fire, only one or two houses out of two hundred being saved. The fire started in Barnes' res', aurant, and in three hours 200 houses, ranging in value from $50 to $250 dollars, were destroyed. No water was to be had to stay the pro gress of the flames. Loss estimated at $60,000. No insurance. The executive committee of the OHIO WORHINGMENS' UNION have issued a call for a State Convention to nominate candidates for State officers, at Chambers Sept. 13th. A cool and refreshing shower visited Bismarck and the surrounding country Monday morning, which greatly encour aged vegetation, purifying the atmos phere, and enlivening things generally. Win. Falconer is probably a loser in the destruction of Gayville. Gayville was nearly as large as Bismarck, and had several large establishments. The quartz mills are just above Gayville at Central City. On Sunday morning Thom%3 Morton and Frank Herron started for Tongue River, with important dispatches for Gen. Miles. They are both experi enced plainsmen, and the commander at Ft. Lincoln could not have selected two better men for the business. Mr. Mixter, of Pleasant Point, was united "in holy wedlock bonds" on last Saturday morning. He spent his hon ey moon in Bismarck, which lasted about three hours, after which he re turned home as though nothing unsual had happened. Dr. Jackson will continue anothea week at the Sheridan House, room 53. The Dr. has given good satisfaction in his speciality of corns, bunions, in-grow ing nails, &c. His Magic Oil works like a charm, and while it will hardly grow out new toe3 it certainly will cure sore ones and ali cuts, bruises, sprains, &c. Call and satisfy yourself. PerwmaL Col. Thos.

He may be expected to return in about four weeks, Mrs. Por ter accompanying him. L. M. Boardman, one of St. Peter, Minnesota's best men, stopped over night at the Sheridan on his way east to pur chase another large stamp mill. S. V. Chase, of St Paul, of the firm of P. H. Kelley, passed through Bismarck Saturday, carrying with him from the Hills a little nugget weighing only $120. 50. He could have got a much larger one but didn't want to be bothered with it Judge Davis and family departed on this morning*s train for London. They Will visit New York and Washington, and then .cross the briny deep for Liverpool. .His family will remain there visiting for the winter, but the Judge will probably return in about six weeks.

Situation in the Hills. The Cheyenne Leader states the situ ation in the Black Hills truly, as the writer knows from personal observation, in the following paragraph: The Pilgrims are rapidly leaving the Black Hills and the more restless miners are making their way to the Big Horn. Capital is taking hold of the quartz min ing and immense returns are being real ized. In the meantime the hydraulic process is being brought to bear on the placer diggings and they are yielding large returns. New discoveries are also reported, but best of all the agricultural resources of the Hills are being develop ed, and fields of wheat and vegetables are noted on ever hand. Society is well regulated, law is respected and capital is making permanent investments. The timber resources of the country are also being utilized. Take it all in all the Hills are a success in every respect, the whines of disappointed men to the con trary, notwithstanding. The stock auction on Saturday last was well attended, and good prices were realized. Every body should remember that Bismarck furnishes better induce ments than any other place in the north west. Our dealers are all reliable, sales ready, and at prices not to be grumbled at. Stock merchants will please bear this in mind. Around Town. Mr Kirkendall is erecting a fine two story frame dwelling 22x30 in the north west side 0L town. This building is very prominently located, and will be one ef the finest residences in Bismarck. Another neat residence is under con« struction in the southeast part of the city, which, we understand, is owned by Little Casino. Ktely, the motor man, explains his long silence by raying that he baa been engaged for orer a year in the construction of a machine weighing twenty tons, and costing $60,000, to generate the netr force be claims to bare discovered. Mr. Keeley's friends tare Etill tb« greatest confidence in bis abil ity to master all difficulties in hfe way. Hlaeilr Hills Items. We are informed -the project of con structing a narrow guage railroad to the Black Hills from Bismarck is again re ceiving the earnest attention of Minne sota and Northern Dakota capitalists. They are now satisfied, it seems, that the investment would prove safe and good, and the necessary ducats are ready when the organization shall have been completed of the proposed company. It is proposed if the interpose is taken in hand, to pusk it through with all,expe dition so as to give us our first railroad connection. The projectors say they could complete the road and have it in running order in a angle season. The great race will probably be between this company and the Niobrara corporation of Sioux City and Nebraska but the latter has on its sido the advantage of a perfected organization and much work already done. A short visit to Crook City on Thurs day, besides giving our paper a -large ad ditional list of subscribers and convinc ing our reporter that the little valley hamlet is chock fall of enterprise ud enterprising men, satisfies us that Crook has a fair future before it, and that when the present generation have all left the Black Hills, to 'ills they wot not of," the hungry and thirsty traveler will be registering his name at four-story brick Crook City hotels, and playing croquet on the lawn with the fair maids of the now little, but then big city. Bro Burke of the Tribune, than whom there is no, more courteous or wide-awake man in^, the West, thinks the same, and deserves to live long enough to see the realization of the prophecy. The firm of Janney, Molles & Brooks, wholesale hardware and grocery mer chants, that has been doing business here for about two months, hiavo'conclusively proven what has always been claimed for this town, namely, that here at the. foothills is where our wholesale stores and main supply depots should be located. This house, which is a branch of the well known and wealthy firm of Minneapolis, Minn., after looking over the country carefully, concluded that their -business would be equally as good if not better here than at Deadwood, besides saving the enormous rents and the danger from fire. They have sold in the short time they have been here an immense quan tity of goo4s and are satisfied with thvir choice of location.—'Crook City Tribune* WhatThejr Think of ths Polky MUI What Tkey are Going to d* about it. They met on the outgoing train f«w evenings ago. One," a distinguish ed Republican senator, the other an ex official* of high character, who has long stood prominently before the country. Said the latter: "Tell me, now, inter nos, what do yon think of the Republican prospects and the policy of the administration?" Said the former: "Well, here it is. We can't go over to the Democrats. We've got tb stand and take what we can get inside the family. Publicly, I Indorse the past and the present, and, I reckon, the fu ture policy of this* administration. Privately, I think Hayes, with the best intentions in the world, hssknocked the 'stuffing' clean out of this party." "And what do you mean to about it?" •'Wait." "Can the old craft be righted br waiting?" "I believe so time and events must help us. Now, what do you think?" "I indorse the policy also." "In the same way?" "Exactly." "Shake." And here the two distinguished gen tlemen grasped bands and leaned back for a more extended ch at. A California. Volcano. BaHhnore San. SAN FBANCISCO, August 5.—A vol canic eruption occurred, preceeded by an earthquake vibration, in Los Angelos County, on June 11, a. m. It was in the mountains, opposite "Flow ing Wells," a station on the new South Pacific Railway, sixty miles from Yuma, its terminus, at the extreme*sonthesst corner of California. The country through which the road passes for the last 200 miles gives evidence of having been within a recent geologic period the seat of active voicanic movement. It is now a repulsive desert, giving signs of probable subterranean disturb ance and suoerficial changes in our age. On June 12, (next day) the volcano, which threw out rocks and black clouds of smoke yesterday, became less demon strative, and towards night it was bare ly visible from the station on the plains. But the next day on closer inspection three craters were in active disturbance, throwing up black smoke, mingled with stones and rockey boulders, which was its condition June 16. An active volcano was felt to be wanting to fill the bill of attractions which this extra ordinary country possesses. Messrs. Raymond Co., Auction and Commission merchants, have settled down to business and will have their auctions regularly on Wednesday even ing at o'clock, and on Saturday in the afternoon from 2 to 3, and in the evening at 6. This firm is reliable, and parties wishing to dispose of their stock can depend upon fair dealing and good prices. Ladie3 and gents furnishing goods accompany each sale.
