Iioiioi:it ji si ii A correspondent of the Missouri lemrrti ut Helen. Montana, give, tho followsvig account of the manner iu which they trtat tho criminaU in thst territory : On Thnrsdiy, April 2, an old man, farming in tho villey n f"v milei from this town, ciwno in on business, got two much whiskey, displayed n wallet with sonio two or three hundred dollars, and toward evening atartvd homo on norm-hick. Tw.i yotino; men, nuinwd Joe Wilson and Comptoo, had " polled" him. They went to u livery stable unl hired two horses, followed him, ' and about ten miles from town shot, beat, nod left hi in for dead, taking his money, and returned lo the city about twclvo o'clock at niht. Tho next tnornicg the old man was fcind on the road alive, serious ly wounded, but able to give inf -million as to the parties who had aanlt- od him. Wilson wa. the first arro-itod. Uo was first taken out to the wouuded man wild the horse, rend by him the sumo evening and not positively identified, bat tho hoi so wus, and the same evening tho other ptrty was ar rested and positively identified as the urna who nreil the shots ; ho wis brought bni.-k aud put in jail with the other prissier. Ou Friday atU'rnooo handbills were posted through the city railing the pccplo to meet at the Court llouso stpiar at seven o clock, nnii nunetually .at the hour about one thousand citizens met and nominated a chairman, when a motion was niado to adjourn until ten o clock A. M. on Satur day, tho fullowiug day. At the snmc timo twelve men were deputed to guard the jail ui.til thut time. On Saturday morning at ten o'clock, with a bright sun overhead, and u pleasant breeze Mowing from tho moutituins, the citizuns met. A freight wagon in tho centra of tbe square was made tho stand or bar of justice. A Mr. Knglii-h was nominated as presi dent or chairman, and bis determina tion was fully depicMd in all bin fea tures, and whoever eke uilht shrink there win no siu . of wavering in his fuco. Uo addressed a few words to the audience on tho crtmo committed, and dccluired himself ready lo do the will and pleasttro of tho meeting Twelve mou wero appinlcd lo cram ino witncs.404 nod tako evidence. Judge Symes here introduced him self aod requested tho citizens to hes itate before goiug to czlrenjitios, or at least postpone the proceedings for ono week, as there was reason to sup pose that othcis coonoetod with this uaug could bo arrested. This had no effect on tho people prosont, his re marks being looked upon ns a mn'ter of courno ft part of his duty. The twelve men then retired, and in a short timo requested that their number be increased to twenty, which was done. In a warchoui-e convenient to tho jail they entered, to examine and consult. A coll was mado hhortly afterwards for twelve men, to request tho sheriff to trivo ui tbe prisoners, aud the younger prisoner was brought out dl the jail through ino jam to ine ware house, where he confessed, and told tho committee whero they could Cud part of ths money buried. A party was deputed to go and search for it. and it was found. Tho other prisonor was brought lo, and found that It wus of no avail, as his enmpsnlou had confessed, and there could bo only oce decision. About two o'clock the president stood at the door of tbe wun liouan, whero tta council wero assembled, aod stated that tho foroman would read the Hading of tbo committee, which was that tho prUouers were guilty of mur der and highway robbery. Tbe next question was, what shall be done with tbe prisoner f when tho cry arose, " UaDii thorn " " Hang them !'' in some instances with cursos. Tbe dead pine tree, or whil is known as ' Hangman's tree' wus fixed on as the place ; tho time set at four o'clock. About (our the people again met, some coming in carriuges, wagons, on horse back and on foot to witness the eze tion. Soon after a wagon drove np to the door, with some boards for seats aud in tbe end a packing box. The orison ers were now attended by thair spiritual confessors, and shortlr after' wards tne ooor opeoea, sou ine nrsi prisoner, Wilson, a young man about twenty-two, short, fair, and good-looking, with a soldier's jacket, stepped in the vehicle and took bis seat, the Methodist minister accompsoy log him. Compton followed, accompanied by one of the priests of the Cat hollo ehnrcb ; be was older, apparently, then WiUoo; taller with drooping shoulders, eosrse features, and anything bat Intelegont, ret not by soy means givingaooe tbo ides of a desperate chsraoter. Tbe president then took his seat! io front with the drivers, and several ol the committee occupied seats In tbo wagon. The crowd, in carrlsgos, wa gons, on horsobsek, on foot, followed, sll aniious to see tbe prisoners. It was only t short distaneo to the fatal tree, whieh had seen some fourteen huns In the ssms manner. It is situ- I atetf la oneof jtowulohee, la thseaafly. orn fnrt of the town; hem a giyal crowd had assembled, including woni on and children, Chinese, Imliuns, to witness tho execution. Tho wairon drove sluwly down the gulch and hailed immediately under the tree, on ono of whoso spreading branches two rope wero suspended with the weliknown hmman's loop in sight. They were somo two yards apart, with the ends tnttdo fast to the butt of tho tree. Here prayeYs were held, ajid cvrybody uncovered their heads and joinod. Tlio prionets were requested to stand on th packing box in th etui of tho wagon, a white hankerchicf was hound mound their eyes j their arms wero pinioned he IiiikI with ii light ropp, their loirs be ing tied in the t-sinc manner. Final ly the ftUl noose was placed over theit heads, when u 11 wus declared rt a ly, sign was given to tho driver of the wagon, iwni ho moved till quickly, leaving tho culprits hauling between heaven and earth. Thus ended tho tragedy, which seems t have been commenced unl carried nut with it system of fiirnc-s an 1 justico both to tho prisoners mil the community. As thero nre so m.iny chances of prisoners cither e eiii ino- from jail or ibmuh tho mohcs of tho law, the p'opjo living in this territory ure ati-hi'i thut this is the only manner 'in which crime can be punished lo their Futi.-d'ucliou. r'IHrr. Pepper posseses this peculiarity, that whilo its production is limited to a small extent of tho ulube, it is iu iinivcr.-al Join m l, both aiuoui; civiliz ed and barbitreu nations. Tho tale for this Hplee is no affair of ca;ii-i or fashion, and consequootly il.eonJi;iop. tiot. mast iuercusn iu the ratio of facil ity und cheapness which the cultivu tor and tho merchant can t-upply it. The quantity already produced per annum is 7.",l.Mli,0H:) pounds namely from .lava, Sutn itra, llortu-o, tho Ma layuu Peninsula, the Molucca4, u.id vaiioiis region: lyimr on tho cnt cost on the Gull' ol Hum. There N, generally aptitVmg, abun htit room for improvement in t'no (jultuie ; whnt i.t opi-eiully required, however and we speak par'.iciiir.rly with rcforeueu to India ij s turgor application f Kuropcuu capital. When tho piieo is high, a largo extent ol'suitublo laud is nt once put under cullurj ; but no sooner doc llio price deelino, ilian no care is taken to replace the exhausted plauts or to curi.'i tho iiupuwriaticd soil, and tho cultivation is not only neglected, but pepper districts wholly diMippear. 'J ho quantity of pepper wo havo giv en nt the ngregato yield may appear enormous; but tho amount named, if distributed amiiii tho iiihatituuts id' tho globj, would scarcely aflojd to each a gruiti t day. 1'n-killod cultivation is not tho only fault connected with tho production tf this rpieo. Tho avidity of cultivators and detilvrs to bring pepper to a market I'. iuontly tempts them tJ pluc!: i, before it is ripe, and from this enmo it turns out light, hollow, npd ili-ll ivorcJ. For years after Iho discovery of the Kasteru Arehipelago, pepper was the principle article of export to Huiopo It is narrated that Vaseo do damn loaded two vessuls with this article nt tho 8 pi eo Islaud in twenty-four days. The first stimulus to tho Eastern trade, now boiugso persist cut ly push ed by tho Americans,' was by the suc cess attonding tho lilting out vessels from Hostou lo what is knowu as the Peppor Const. The trado is now wholly In tho bands of Kuropeans and Americans. 1'ps hikI DO its ot l.llo. Mr. Johu Hart is creating a furore in u minstrel hall in New Y'ork by his perfect delineations of negro char acter. Ho was once a luillionare. When the oil fever broko out in Penn sylvania, Mr. Hart owned a hundred uures of wild land near Tidroute, Pa , worth about sixteen cunts an acre Ho was then running a canal boat on tho Delaware and Hudson Canal.

Stock companies wero formed in whieh bo was a prominent share holder, and at ono timo he was offered 8500,000 for bis interest. This wus refused. Uo left the canal, built a most magnificent private residence, wore diamonds of almost fabulous value, and seemed mado of inouey. At oue time he was a prominent can didate for Congress, but fuiled to se cure the nomination through the in ortness of a-trustod Mend. Fortune's wheel suddenly turned backward Mr. Hart wus inveigled into more oil specnlutious, and within three year was without a peony, fie tben turn ed his attention to negro minstrelsy, and is siid ' to be superior to either Dan Byrant, T.
