The stage lines of Messrs. Seachy. Hailey and Great house. centering into B« « City exert an in fluence on the prosperity of the place, that Is but imperfectly understood by a majority of the people. We are accustomed to regard the stage proprietor as one who takes advan tage of our necessities to charge exorbitant rates for carrying us from place to place, and as living upon the p rosperi t y of the country, without contributing materially to its growth when nothing is further from the truth ; all the industries of the community arc- stimula ted as much by the presence of good respon Bible stage lines, as by any other institutions.

M ■ Washington's Birth-day will oc —, Monday next, the 22nd. inst, It is ' one hundred and thirty-six years since „ tine Washington, -was t«orn at Mount Vernon the banks of the Potomac, in Westmor land County Virginia. Very early in the j Revolution, the birth day of Washington be to be celebrated as a national holiday, , and to-day it is second only in the calendar | to Christmas and the fourth oT July. George Washington's first ambition was to officer in the British Navy, bat his widowed , I cur on now George Washington, the third son of Augus m ] finding it too severe a blow j mo ther, to part with him at so early an age i )f . changed his mind on the eve of departure f nr sea, and remained at home, where h js first professional service was in the ea become pacity of surveyor, in the employ of Lord Fairfax.

It is hoped, the beauty, fashion and patriotism of the place, will lend their pres j ence in doing honor to the memary of the Father of his country Good news for Owyhee, in the assur 0 f ft Collier Robbins, that he expects to commence the work about the first ot April. that the great tunnel into the core of an ce old M ar Eagle, is about to commence, reach ed here day before yesterday. We have seen the statement in a letter over the signature When this, the most important undertaking ever conceived or in Idaho, shall reveal the hidden wonders of that monarch or the moun tains, and men shall walk, where forcount 1 .« ages no eye but hi. who created itland built up the crystal pyramids that stand con : coaled beneath its rough exterior, has ever penetrated iu darkness, we may reasonably hope for disclosures that will astonish man kind to -earth's remotest bounds." The discoveries on the surface iu imperfect and broken formations warrant the almost certain conciusian that beneath this confusion of minerals with the surface rocks, there is a source whence came the tnelals and the great depth at which the tunnel will traverse the mountmii's base, encourage« the behelthat it will tw» it in a vital spot, and cause it lo yield t prelnou» 8tori ? of wealth by tons instead af ounces.

Oar appearance in the Democrat office in Boise City on Monday last, during the ab sence of the editor, who was paying a visit to Silver, seemed to excite the risibil ties of the boys in th* office, who were playing with a pile of comic cuts, and at our suggestion to select a particularly hideous one to represent the strayed editor, and publish it in connec tion with a reward for bis apprehension, they fairly exploded with laughter. We left th« scamps enjoying the prospective joke, feeling I that we had a good thing on Tom Bail, hut ! on our return to Silver, our surprise may be imagined when we opened Wednt-sday morn ing's Democrat, to find ourseir caricatured i in the «âme article with the missing editor, under the caption, "Taken up" and to make , the case more agravating, we are represrn i ted as a " dusty Snake or Bannock," smoking S a large pipe, and leaningagainst a tobacco hogshead.
