SATURDAY, APRIL 9. 1854. THE NEWS. Mr. Alexander Long of Ohio, is the Major of Congress. Like that luckless milita ry hero, be has told too much. He yester day declared that the Democracy were for 'pence, lor recognition of the rebel Confeder acy. He was opposed to subjugation, Gen. (airfield thereupon opened his fall battery (and he never fires blank cartridges,) and wry little was left of Mr. Long, if wo may judge from the fragment .of the debate given in the dispatches. "Whereupon Mr, Long, finding he had roared too load, tried to cs <•ol*! it by coming down. He wasn't the Democratic party. He wasn’t a lion at all, only Kick Bottom the Weaver.” Bat Mr. Long did speak for the peace demagogues, and though he doubtless blabbed more than they would wish,he waatrneto their doctrine and deserved all Gca. Garfield gave him. And Ibc peace Democrats deserve the fate that is lu store lor them at the hands of aniudig* 3 unit people, what lime the elections take place. At an informal meeting of several of our hankers and business men, last evening, en couraging proof was given that some action may be looked for at the meeting of the Board of Trade next woek which will kill off the wild cats, and make greenbacks the basis of business transactions. It must come to that eventually, and better now when It leaves the wild cat brood with life enough to claw themselves out of the State, than after some revulsion that shall leave them dead and a stenqb in the hands of holders. The people are ready to adopt and to repudiate the spawn ot Ific rag-mills. Let Jt be done. The 9th army corps, which has been in Last Tennessee ever since Gen. Burnside captured Knoxville, is now being transferred to the army of the Potomac. It commenced moving several days ago. It is Burnside’s old corps. Latest news from Mexico by way ol Kcw Orleans, contradicts the previous report that si French fleet was already at Mat&moras to reduce that city, bnt confirms the scheme as 7>dng in expectancy. The same authority tissnuics that the empire is established and tbe throne waiting for Maximilian. This ticws e accompanied by intelligencefromNew York, first made public in a French journal of that city, on Wednesday, that the “Re gency of the" Mexican Empire” formally declare null and void all contracts for Mexican lands made with Juarez. Beyond question here Is a speck ot future grave complication. The whole well satis fies us that Congress has done wisely to faV? the initiative as it has done against tbe Fran coMcxlcan scheme, on the general principles of the Monroe doctrine, that it may not be made to appear that such action was a pre text to cover other questions involved in ■the rights of American citizens under this decree, or recognition of the rebels by the Emperor. "We bind! perhaps come to both of these in lime. John Morgan evidently is not in highfeith cr with the rebel authorities since tbe Rich mond Eramiurr is indignant because two regiments recruited by ‘John Morgan have been taken from him and given to General < rigfcby, a pet of Jefl. Davis, leaving Monran with only 500 men. Morgan bns never been i'cigivcu at Richmond for his stupid bravado of rading into the heart of Ohio, a worse blow ten fold to the rebel cause than to onr ride. So Morgan has been razeed. Richmond papers of the 2Sth nit. report that Gov. Vance, of North Carolina, is ad dressing the North Carolina brigades in Lee's army. The Governor is on an etectiodecring tour, his opponent being Mr. Holden, the bold and outspoken editor of the Raleigh fi.andard, the latter heading and r presenting the party in disgust with the rebellion. AlTuirs at Mobile arc in statu quo. A rebel litter at Richmond reports from Mobile that tight Federal vessels are still lying off Fort Towcll. and ten off Fort Morgan. The ram Tennessee that was to destroy onr fleet is, as •vras stated a few days ago, a total loss, and our tars arc having an dasy time of it. We present elsewhere the views ofMr. G. F, SSittlc relative to the gold mines of Idaho. -*!r. Settle is an old, practical and experi enced miner, having followed that vocation twelve years in California, and being inti-, mutely acquainted with the mining pros pects ofColorado, Ncvadaand Idaho. He Is sit present Tn the flty, superintending the •construction of some quartz mills, and will *-<* on return to Idaho. "tVe commend his views to those about to emigrate thither •ward as containing much valuable informa tion, and present them in' nearlyJJUls own language. The storm, which has put its serious cm. 7.argo on all classes of business forsomc days past, made the telegraph no exception List ; evening, as onr columns elsewhere indicate, i From Louisiana wc have farther ond’fresh nd vices of the success of the Red Rivcreipe <lition. It has a great work yet before it, but It is well pushed,"and the campaign has every ;iuspiclouF aspect. The first annual meeting of the North western Freedmcn’s Aid Commission, will be held in this city next week. The public meeting will be held on Thursday, the 14th uiiKt., at half-past seven o'clock, r. ai, in the Second Presbyterian Church—Rev. Dr. Pat i erson’s. The business meeting will be held In the lecture room oi the same church, on 1 he day following, at 9 o'clock In the morn ing. Addresses will be made at the public meeting by distinguished gentlemen from abroad. Louisville dispatches say Forrest is melting :*'vay his force In Western Kentucky by j-'iuadsaud fclij plng them away Southward. 'J Ids remains lobe proven. It is furthered <L d that he is dispatching emissaries into < >Mo. Indiana, and Illinois to incite rebellion :u>d stir up the people to revolt As though the roming hither of these ragged preachers oh tie son would lave any other effect even in the most rur-1 districts* than to constrain tin* lurmcrs to take up the four year old cults every night, and count their poultry imd sucking pigs every morning. Perk ips it If so, however. Wc learn, by grapevine tel -4 bniph of course, that one of these rebel tipostles asked of Forrest permission to come to Chicago, whereupon his leader informed Jmn that it would be altogether superfluous, a:> the Editor of the Jeff Davis organ in Chicago would do everything that the rebels could desire, and was about all tbcagcncy of the kind that the public would stand. "Wc aivc both stories for what they arc worth. I robabiy both arc equally reliable. Wc art unable to give the name of the cor respondent who furnished us the election returns from the town of Bloomingdolc, in DuPagc county. It is evident from letters received that the report did gross injustice to Mr. L. E. London, and to the town itself, where not two living Copperheads are to be lound, and one of whom Mr. Lis not Obvi ously, with all tbe caution wo s con exercise, v. e are much at the mercy of correspondents u. sneb matters, and arc ns eager as any party can be loknow who Imposed upon us. v\ e make the amende fully to Mr. Landou. TUB HESTTJLT XS SUttVUj; D Tbe result of the late election in Maryland U each as to fill the heart of every lovaltuun with rejoicing. On Wednesday hist she voted, l.y a majority unparalleled in her history in Juror of a Convention to amend her Coniti tiUion so as to-emshont at once, and with ro paltering about compcusatiou, the Infer nal institution of Human Slavery, Baltimore, where our soldiers were fired upon in 1661 by the the minions of the slave-drivers, on Wednesday gave 9,000 majority for immedi ate and unconditional Emancipation- All was orderly and quiet Every citizen was allowed Lis vote under restrictions wo shall presently consider, and as the result, the voice of Mary land stands recorded for Freedom. And was not this to be expected irom the coarse taken by the noble Union men of tbe State tor months past? The speeches of Henry Winter Davis and his compeers have been tired by the loftiest patriotism, and it has re quired no little courage to utter them among Furroundiugs where three years ago the lightest of such expressions would have been the signal for bloodshed and martyrdom. But most significant of all wc regard the to ken of progress in Maryland public senti ment, evidenced in the utterances of Beverdy .'olmson iu the Scnatcon Tuesday, where he, -v, i.o was never called a Radical, never a Re ; Lblicun, but with his sincerity and calm la t-6 of of purpose, scaled by Ms ugeand~by :i ‘ 3 1:»k antecedents a Conservative, declared '' ti.at tin <x'.tUucf if Slavery shock* the v\ti e < r -<d world*?’ With Charles Sumner he announces Slavery dead? "This from the vet ••nmMarylond Senator Is the crowning proof VOLUME XVII. of the dawned redemption of his State, and furnishes both a cine to the tone of the late election, and the proof that the victory is genuine. But there win be heard a howl from the Copperhead press. Indeed, it has already begun. They declaim against the invasion of civil liberty, and assert that ail classes of men were not permitted to vote. It will be instructive, therefore, to giye, just here, the identical tests applied at the polls. Will any loyal man, whose heart is with the cause of the Union, say that the Marylander who shrinks from this test is rightly to be en trusted with suffrage in this crisis ? The first duty of the voter should be loyalty. And let us ask how many would 1 be excluded from our Chicago polls, were a like test to be ap plied to tbe horde of Hovc-In Sherman, whose organ is the Chicago Timet. Bead the test employed at the voting places In Mary land, and learn what class of her citizens voted she shall be free— those only who pledge she shall he loyal. QUESTIONS. 1.

Note.—Comfort or encouragement means advo cacy, advice in tavor of. We aid the rebellion by giving money, clothing and provisions; we give It comfort or encouragement by our words.

KECIPItOCITT WITH CAN' ABA. Synopsis of the Congressional Report* The following is a synopsis of the Bej>ort ot the House Committee on Commerce, through the Hon Elijah Ward of New York, as to the operations of the Reciprocity Treaty between the United States and the British North American Provinces. The Report exhibits facts and figures show ing the operation of the existing Treaty, so far as practicable, down to the present time. Between 1821 and 18CS, the exports of the United States to those Provinces increased from $2,009,903 to $31,231,030—the domestic exports from $2,009,336 to $23,629,110, and ' exports of foreign origin from siis to $2,651,920. There arc no complete and authentic data as to onr imports later than 1863; but in that year they were, from all the Provinces. $19.299,9*; In 1821, only $490,701. The whole trade-bos increased from $2,500,- 495 in 1821 to $50,581,025 in 1863. The Treaty came into effect folly in the fiscal year 1855-0. The following Is a sum mary of the whole trade between the United States and these Provinces from that time to June 80,1662: Exports of foreign origin'... Exports of domestic origin. Total exports. Total imports Balance of exports in onr favor $*21,912,445 It impossible that the people of both countries would vear after year have perse vered in this vast interchange if It had not, upon the whole, been mutually beneficial. A closer analysis will show the reasons why the treaty has been regarded with dissatisfaction, and, throughout the greater-part of our cq terminonstronticr with the populous portion of Canada, the most important of all the Provinces, has failed to produce the friendly international relations which were anticipat ed, and at first realized, as the natural re sults of a vast series of reciprocal, benefits or extended coommercial relations. A singular disunion exists among the Pro vinces. Each of them—Canada, New Bruns wick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward’s Island, and Newfoundland—unlike our own Slat’s, bos a separate tarilf against the other, and against Great Britain also. In ISCO their pop ulation was 3,2511,000. Of, this, less than 700 000 belonged to the maritime Provinces, and not more than 2,500,000 were Canadians. No complaint hits been laid before the Com mittee with regard to any of the Provinces except Canada.'' For this and other reasons, lire statistics of this trade are worthy of sep arate consideration: Our exports to Canada stpf* 1655, when the treaty went into operation, .were $181,014,376 Our imports thci.ce daring the same time Balance in our favor $1,439,770 Of these exports, $26,004,405 were goode of foreign origin, purchased chiefly with pro ductions of the United States, and yielding employment not only to the farmer and man ufacturer, but also to the shipper and sailor, and profit to the merchant. There were no stipulations in the treaty with regard to them, and their amount has been much di minished by the special legislation of Canada In 1855, they amounted to $8,703,550; and to no more than §3,468,113 in 3803. In 1853, they were only half the amount they reached »»n the average in each of the five years pre ceding the treaty, and even less by 25 per cent than in 1849. This unfavorable change was effected by the Canadians, as is ' well known to the public through exacting, since the tre:tiy. a system practically differential ud discriminating against this country by levying duties on the value of merchaudiseat Ike place where it was last bought, which said the Board of Trade of Canada West, “practically shuts the dcor to the admission mto Canada of the leading articles hitherto purchased In the greit markets of the United elates, and forcing Upper Canada to import via the fit Lawrence, or otherwise pay an enormous Increase of duty.” It is not unreasonable to expect that as the legislation by which the United States arc injured also is an injury to the Canadian cus tomer, compelling him to pay increased prices for many articles, the difficulty may be re moved by negotiation. In clfcct the mer chants of Canada have almost entirely ceased to be customers in our frontier cities for American manufactures, and for merchandize of foreign origin. By various Canadian tar iff acts, the duties have been increased, until the trade of the United States throughout the whole conntiy, in their own manufac tures and goods of foreign origin, has been veiy greatly diminished. In 1*56, the value ol the exports of our manufactures to Cana da was nearly $8,000,000. In 1862-3 it was $1,510,802, The year after the treaty, the trade via. the SL Lawrence diminished to the amount of >10,203,C00; and more than this amount was immediately transferred to the earning and other tr^deof the United States, Of the tunnage employed in the carrying tradejbetween toe United* States and the Brit ish North’American Provinces darin"* the last five years, 20,733,512 arc of vessels be longing to this country, and 13,844,919 the amount of foreign tonnage. Brief allusion Is made to the progress of liberal government in Great Britain, and the effect upon the relations of that country with her Colonies. A very important point settled by the Treaty related to the Fisheries on the Colonial coast. Free access to them was deemed of great national value, not only for their direct profits, but as constituting a great training school for hardy, adventurous and skillful seamen. By the Convention of 1818. we had “uritfht to fish within three miles of shore. a diflerence of opinion existed between the t y o countries as to the places where the ima- l inc Bljould he drawn; the Govern <-,Vrvni ? f United States contending that it U(iiHnf?i DttDUC equidistant from the indenta- Coirni?iL llK j* 8,,0 r e» an< * authorities of the <ireat Britan deciding that it headlm.d 6 from certain specified Webster held tlmt, bye strict flsbinc velufetf of 010 Convention, “ wSiudSf ° f the Unlt ed States were liree S e ?tering into these bays.” near the coast° Sn? *° cacU couatr y were founded on ConhtetSi,“fw dcr tnstrneUons turous men views.

The steamer Continental from New Orleans evening of the 2d has .arrived, bringing a large number; of government mules, ami wagons from Vicksburg. Nine hundred contrabands, men, wo men, and children, have arrived from Alexandria. Officers of steamers from Red River report a con siderable fight on the Cone Direr 83 miles above Alexandria on the Bth, between Ocn. Smith's forces, consisting of 8,000 infantry under Gen. Mower, and Dudley's brigade of Lee’s cavalry corps of Dick Taylor’s army, estimated 12,000 strong, posted in an advantageous position. The fight lasted about 3 hours. Our loss is re ported at IBldlledandabout CO wounded. That of the rebels is much greater, some placing it at 200 killed and wounded. We capturedsoo prisoners; others are still being brought in. Dudley’s brig ade in the advance greatly distinguished them selves. Onr troops did not halt on the battle ground, but . pushed on in pursuit of tbc retreating enemy. No rest would be given the rebels. It was Gen. Smith's design to force the enemy to make a stand, and defeat them In a pitched battle, if possible. A considerable nnmberof deserters entered oar lines. The steamer LaCrosse was captured and burned by guerillas, on the 25th nit-, below Alexandria.

The story of Forrest’s officers haring crossed hto Indiana to cxdtc the people to revolt. Is dis credited here. About forty guerillas entered Shelbynlle, Ky., at 1 o'clock this morning, stole seven horses from Middleton’s stable, but before they could ride its i-ontents, they became alarmed at the proximity of the 12th Ohio cavalry, and decamped.

Important Intelligence from Hebe] Sources, Washington", April 7.—TheKchmond Examiner of the SSth of March has the following dispatches; OrcAXCE Cocut Horse, March 27.—Gov. Vance, of North Carolina, addressed the troops of Gen. Daniels’ brigade, yesterday. In cn able and eloquent speech of two hoars, and will speak again to-mor row, and every day this week. Gens. Lee, Hill, Edward Johnson, Rhodes, and many general offi cers were present to hear him yesterday. The weather is fine, and the roads are drvin" fast. There is nothing from the front. Dalton, Marcn 25.—N0 reinforcements, with the exception of returning regiments, have arrived in frentss yet, though It is generally supposed that Sherman will be brought within striking distance. A heavy snow fell here last night followed by n hard rain, which put the roods in ,-had order again. • The Examiner chargee that the Richmond Gov ernment has treated John Morgan witb jealousy and injustice. It says that two of Morgan’s regi ments. every man of whom was recruited by hlm se*f ip Kentucky, and for special service under himself, have been transferred to the command of Griggs, a special pet of Jeff. Davis. Morgan Is, therefore, left with a command of only about 503 men. A letter from Mobile states that eight Federal vessels are still lying off Fort Powell and ten off Fort Morgan. *flhe £romirer has an editorial eonndlvberating Jeff. Davis and his Cabinet for their alleged inten tion of receiving Butler under a flag of trace, and wearing with him in regard to the exchange of prisoners. “This,’’ says the Eramirur, “will necessitate the withdrawal by the Confederate Gov ernment of its deliberate proclamation of oatlawrv sud feltmj npjhwt him.’- Tho Examineri<xs not oe.levo that ?ne Confederate Government has sunk as to trample upon Its solemnly-uttered ? r to f>e guilty of what it designates £ r * b «[ cc * meanness.

J FROM MEXICO. ** The Latent Phase of Affairs, New Orlzaxs, March 28.—A few days ago the Era stated tha* a private letter from an oiflcsr in • the Federal army, stationed at Brownsville, on the Rio Grande, contained the important intelligence that nine French frigates were sta loned bl the month of the river, and it was believed an attack would be made upon Matamoras. The Era farther stated that its correspondent M Browosvllie rth ported that Cortinas was preparing to march against the enemies of the Liberal Government. Since then, the schooner Luther Childs. Capt, Op pert, reporti* that when he left, the French lleet tad not arrived, but that information had been received from Havana that two war steamers were expected out from France, which would devote themselves to securing that port for the Mexican Empire. A land force, as a matter ol course, it was expected, would be sent to cooperate. As to Cortinas, Capt. Leppert re ports that he was levying hcaw contributions from citizens and merchants, preparatory, os he said, to a movement against the invaders; but his future course was by no means certain. Owners and holders of cotton were transporting it to Boos del Rio with all haste, in order to get it on shipboard, before the arrival of the French. Cortinas Is not unknown to many persons here, and the general opinion among such is that be is only anxious to “make hiapiic,” and that when he got as much money as he well can get, be will vamose the rrnchc and leave Matamoras to the tender mercies ofthe Imperialists. .

Tlic Quicksilver Ca*e Decided In Favor of tbo Company. [From the N. Y. Tribune, April slh 1 There was a singular scene in the Supreme Court room to-day. It Yas understood that ihc decision in the celebrated Quicksilver iliue case was to be announced. The scuts and aisles of the court wore crammed with an anxious crowd of both sexes. Among them were many of the greatest celebrities of the country. ’When Judge Nelson com menced reading tho opinion of the Coart a dead silence was maintained, and every ear has strained to catch his faintest syllable. As it became more and more apparent that the decision was in favor of the company, one by one the listeners dropped out, hasten ing to the telegraph office. When tbe con clusion was reached there was a gfper.il ex odus, and the telegraph offices of ’Hm House •*.nd Senate were thronged with anxious spectators, eager to realize their profits.

The oj luioa of tho Court was delivered by Mr. Justice Nelson,establishing the southern and eastern boundaries of Fossat’s grant as including the mine. The southern bounda jy is the Great Sierra, which defeats the pre tensions of the United States. The eastern boundary is the straight line bv the eastern base of the Low Bill, thus throwingthc mine on Fossat’s ranch.

It is a valuable record of what has been done by contributions, olher then those by the Government, for the wants of the soldiers, and on this question statistics have been collected wllh wonderful Industry and a rare completeness oficsult. There canbe scarcely any body who \ylll not be surprised to know that the total amounts to $212.274,vKMC, made up of boun ties, aid to families, gifts from the States for national defenses, and many other sources. The Sanitary contributions alone amount to $1C,40f J ,K9.60. As a unique presentation of these facts, the book is intrinsically of high worth. Wo call attention to it also because the author has made of It a direct, as well as incidental contribu tion to the Fair. Mr. Hartley himself gives 5.000 copies of the hook to the Metropolitan Fair, where, in proper place, It will be found for sale. The printers, Messrs.

[From an Occasional Correspondent.] St. Louis, April 4,1381. Having just returned from an extended trip in Arkansas, some notes may he of interest to the Tribune, Boring the trip I have visited Little Hock, tbe headquarters of 31 aj. Gen. Steele, and Fort Smith, where Maj. Gen. Blunt,'of Kansas, and Brig. Gen, J. 3L Tbaycr, of Nebraska, hold divided sway. .1 have been an interested observer of events in that State. During my stay, the election called by the recent State Convention, under the terms of the President’s proclamation.: came off with re sults, pladng’Arkansas, like Louisiana, within the sisterhood of/rre as well m United States.. The vote, and the temper with which U was cast, will have become old news for your columns before this reaches you. It is all glorious and cheering,, and among those host pleased to have it so are thousands of Rackensacks,” the wolves who long ago got sick of the war and its hopelessness. Let mo indicate tbe state of military affairs. Since tbe first of September last, all of Arkansas, north of the river, and part of the southeast, has been in possession ol Federal forces. The rebels have been confined to that portion of tbe State west of the Washita River} ‘and the valley thereof. There has never been a time when the remnants of tbe various Confederate armies that have operated thereabouts, have amounted to over 10,000 0r12,009. irconccntratcd. These have been stationed at Camden, Arkadclphia and vicinity; at Washing ton, Spring Hill, Laneaport, Center Point, Ac, They are known to be much demoralized and dis heartened. There frequent defeats'have almost demoralized them. Gen. Steele has for a longtime past Issued rations for IS,O> 0 men at Little Rock- and. other places in the eastern portion of the State. In tbe western, the veteran Army of tbe Frontier was stationed, numbering 8,000 or 10,000 men. It should now seem ae il a very brief campaign would drive out the rebel forces,,and the entiroState be thus allowed to participate In tbe fruits of the late election. It would have undoubtedly added several thousand votes to the count, to have made this movement earlier. Supplies are received at Little Rock by way of the White River to Duval’s Blntf, and hence by railroad to Little Bock. This roitl has been iff* an execrable condition for months. It is hardly to s'ate bow much repairs are needed. The condition of all railways in tbe Confederate States Is the same. Thlt ißihc raiuj eeasOD. Tho troops now mov ing to Southwest Arkansas- will, there Is great danger, lie In the nmd for several week in the vicinity of Arkadclpbia, and then, perhaps, re* ttun to Little Rock, having accomplished nothing against the enemy. Probably they, will succeed in; another movement, the details of which will here* after appear. The' conntiy through which I passed from Little Rock to Fort Smith, presents a deserted appear* aero. At various points on the river, forces were stationed,gathering in cotton, foraging, and guard ing the fords etc. - At Roseville we foond the Ist regiment Kansas colored volunteers, under Col. James N. Williams. Tbi« claims to be the first organized body of negro sc Idlers In the country. It certainly Is one of the finest disciplined and drilled infantry organizations It has been my for tune to meet. The Colonel stated that they had collected,ginned,buledand shipped, several hundred Isles of cotton—between 400 and sXl,* !arg? amount was then waiting shipment. It is very evident that unless some svstematlc efforts bo made to cul tivate the deserted lands, that next fall, not only the people but the army will find It difficult to sub sist or remain In that region. Immediately in the vicnity of Roseville are thousands of fcrriUacrcs, abandoned by their rebel owners. There are hun dreds of healthy, stont colored women, and men. unfit for the service, who have been field hands, that would gladly work these lands (or pay, pro vided they could be insured protection against bushwackere. So it is all along the Arkansas Valley. The river Is too uncertain in Its rise and fall to be depended upon for sum lies. Tbo long and tedious land routes by which stores mast then be obtained, ma de rs the lecdlngand maintaining an army there most difficult With sufficient protection It would by no rarrjia be difficult to pat land enough under culti vation to materially aid the maintenance, not only ot the people, bnt of tho army also. THE GOLD MINES OF IDAHO. .What a Practical Gold Hunter Says of them. the snxEs or idaho and cautornia. I have frequently been asked-, how the placer miccs of Idaho compare with} those of California. My answer invariably has been, there is no com parison at all. Where thnro are miles of placer mining in California, thew-aro only acres in Idaho. I do not wish to bo understood that Idaho is not a very rich mining country, but upon the con trary. I am warranted in saying that as Liras the Territory naa been prospected the mines have proved as rich as those of California in her r?*«l«*t diiysybnt it must be borne In mind that Idaho i» I'Ui «ttlo over a year oid as a mining country, and It will require more than a day to de vclopc the great minora! wealth of the Territory. It required two years of toll by the hardy pioneers of California tocstab'lah its reputation as the El Dorado ot the West. The same length of time must be granted to the pioneers of Idaho, and I will unhesitatingly risk my reputation as a California miner that before ifce time expires wc will prove to the most sceptical that California is not the only Enreka on «he shores of the Pacific. We will prove that if Idaho Is cot the equal'of California in the extent ot her placer mines, that she Is at least her equal in the richness of those already discovered- BANNOCK CITY MIXES.
