A Col. Baker, in command of an
expedition against the Blackfoot In
diana near Fort Benton, M. T. t on
January 21at, surprised the camp of
Bear Chief, consisting of 30 lodges,
killing all but eight bucks. Bear,
who is known to have murdered
many whites, ia among the slain,
j Some of the (irosveutres, Bloods
an( j piemans, hearing of the fate of
Bear's camp, fled across into the
British possessions, but the Colonel
obtained permission to follow them,
i and.was still in persuit. The Black
feet have been, and still are, a very
| trollb i esomP an j treacherous tribe,
j =
an d require the constant presence ol
| , 0 Jdjerv to keep them peaceable.—
|
; But in this instance Col. Baker and
his soldier boys have made good In
dians of Bear and his party. The
1'iutes, Snakes and Bannacks ot this
region are equally treacherous and
blood thirsty wilh the Blackfeet.—
Th» lesson of the withdrawal of
troop 3 from ibe upper Missouri, is
; certain to be repeated here, i
our frontier posts shall be abandoned

Oi.n Virginia has been admitted
j , h former status in the Union
J , _ ,
minus slavery ; her Senators and
j Representatives sworn in aud taken
. their seats, but not without much
opposition from the Copperhead
side of the bouse,
rant old hypocrite, objected to hav
ing Congressmen sworn in because
some years ago Porter, in a boated
debate jb Norfolk, had declared the
| G overn inent a humbug. Sargent,
; Q f California, replied that if all
members were expelled who could
J be convicted of having used such
Wood, the ar
language, the aeals on th# Demo
cratic side would be pretty generally
vacant ; whereupon Woodward, of
Pennsylvania, blustered and sput
tered awhile and pronounced Sar
gent's remarks slanderous to the
Democracy.
The Democratic papers will prob
ably cease now to charge the Radi
cals with keeping States out of the
Union, as when oue cornea to the
door clothed and in her right mind,
they still persist in trying to keep
her out in the cold.
Ex U. S. Senator, James S. Green
of Missouri, died in St. Louis on the
PJth of January, aged 53 years.
Green, during his Senatorial career,
regarded by many as the ablest
was
debater on the Democratic side, but
falling under habits of dissipation,
which had grown upon him for many
years, ho became a wreck of his
former self, aud during the war al
lied what there was left of him To
the rebel cause, which sank him
lower than ever, so that at the time
of his death he exhibited none of the
fire and vigor of his earlier life and
died in circumstance* of extreme
poverty.
Tus last act ot bravery committed
by the Vigilantes in Montana was to
hang a Chinaman on a tree in Dry
Gulch at Uelana, and pin upon his
back a card with the words, " Be
of Vigilantes ; still alive.''

Opposition in Division.
Tlesiuy, Jan. Üôth, 1870.
At an adjourned meeting ef the
citizens of Boise City, called to con
sider the best means to protest
against the division of the Territory,

the chair.

Whereas, Said portion of Idaho

Whereas, No such division could i
be made in justice to that portion of
the people so cut off or do justice to
those remaining north of «aid divi-

Resolved, That we respectfully
protest against such division, or any
division tending to dismember our
Territory.
Resolved, That it is not only re
pugnant to republican principle to
destroy the established geographical
lines of our common country with
out the consent and against the
wishes of those most interested, but
it is a vioiatien of publie honor hy
