Editer Butte Miner: I» my opinion the valley of th» Yel'ow sto»e U over rated, the soi) being something llkg adobe with plenty of aUull mixed in to Ö 1 it tone. Water for irrigating is hard to since there are only a few streams putting into the river from the north side, and most of lb »» oink or become dry at the time when water it most needed. To take a ditch from the river to a farm on its banks would cost on an average about (500. The settlers be iw Sweet Grass most use river water for the kfele and for their stock, the soil containing I much alkali that well water is unfit for •e. Clark's Fork bottom is 80 miles long by six Wide and bas three streams running through it, but they all become dry in summer. The Rose Bud bottoms are quite narrow but the soil is good and there is an abundance of fine and cottonwood timber. It is a poor place for stock, though bay is plentiful, for a saddle blanket would mire in the bogs and morassas along the river side. Little Horn valley has plenty of good land, good timber and water with every facility for irrigating. A few skeletons are yet to be seen on the Custer battle ground close by. The bones of most of the slain were thrown inlo a circular heap and covered with a few inches of earth, after the manner of a cabbage pit. The country at the head of Tongue river is the best I have yet seen of the districts open to settlers. Plenty of good land, well water ed by shallow streams ; lots of timber such as pine, cottonwood, white asb and cedar. This country is settling up fast. On the day I lett fifteen families were expected to arrive from Texas. Eight families from Missouri arrived » few days previously, and after looking around a little set stakes to remain. They My it is the best country they have seen in their travels, but if the Crow Reservation were reduced and the Big Horn river made its eastern boundary, the most fertile portion of Eastern Montana wouldthereby be thrown open to settlers. I am to leave in a day or two for th* Na tional Park in company with a large party from the East. Transportation is furnished by Uncle Sam. With kind regards to the Butte boys, Ed.

Editor Batte Miner : The population of Bonanza City it increas l«g. and the town putting on a more lively appearance from day to day. The mine own era who went elsewhere to winter have as Asm their reported of lat», but the old locations »til! keep up their reputation as rich claims. Nor ton, Bohrer A Co. have two arastras running on ore from the Charles Dickens, and are do ing well. Mohler, Meyers & Sexton have an arastra running on their lode with flattering results. Mr. Estes' arastras will soon be ready to begin reducing ore from his lodes, the Cbarles Waine and the Snow Bird Those three arastras comprise the sum total ot our camp's reduction works to date. Bonanza City, although rapidly growing, as yet only contains in the way of business houses, two hotels, three stores, three sa loons and one blacksmith shop. A rival town, two miles above Bonanza has been christened Cuzter City. The wagon road of which the public has heard so much is to be built immediately, and is expected to reach this place by August. Meyers & Pease, of Salt Lake and Fred Philips of Salmon City, have given notice of their intention to begi work on it at once. A few days ago our usually quiet town was thrown into a fever of excitement by a shoot ing scrape on the public streets. From what 1 can learn the citizens of Bonanza lately employed a night-watchman, and one James Dwyer took exceptions to the selection made. Subsequently Dwyer drifted into an alterca tion with the watchman, which led to the shooting, and to his receiving in various parts of his person tour of the five butlets tired by his antagonist. The watchman was nuhuit. Dwyer may possibly recover. I have just learned that three prospectors were murdered the other day by Indians, over in the vicinity of Warren's diggings— supposed to be the same Indians that killed the Chinamen on Loon Creek, last February. We have at present only a weekly mail, but have petitioned the Department for a tri weekly front Challis to this place, and have strong hopes of getting it. A line of coaches runs from the terminus to the last named town, situated 40 miles from here. It is ex pected that the coach line will be extended to Bonanza » soon as (lie toll road is finished to this place. Respectfully, B. B. Bonanza City, Idaho, June 8th, 1879. The Paaelllc Echo. N*w York, June 20.— The Times says there is a prospect, if the police do not inter fere, that the people of New York will be treated to a series of " Sand-lot " extertain ments, after the manner of Dennis Kearney. It is announced by means of postal cards, handbills and otherwise, that commencing on the evening of Juue 28th. and to be continued every Saturday evening during the summer, the " Citizens' Committee " will preside over public meetings of" labor reformer!!»," to be held in Union Square. According to an nouncement, a new constitution for New York on the California plan, without the Chinese or coin clauses, will lie discussed by the local and national speakers. There are to be " no leadeis but Die people, no paity but voters, a Greenback and Workiiinicn's platform will be advocated, and all citizens are invited." To the Partie. Idaho World. Jhiu 13.

DOMESTIC NEWS N*w York, June 28.—The Tribune con cludes its usual Monday review of the busi ness situation and prospects throughout the country. It says while professional working men in Congre» and in political conventions are bawling about their sufferings and wrongs, the actual workingmen of the country are to-day more felly employed and at better wag», the purchasing power of money con sidered, greater than at any period since the disbandment of the armies at the close of the war. The growing activity in mining stocks here causes more attention to be paid to the West ern Territories, as shown in the increasing Colorado, Montana and Arizona correspond ence. The Times to-day has two columns on Montana affairs. The writer says the office,s of the Northern Pacific railroad are expected to leave Bismarck about the middle of this month on an overland trip to the Y ellow stone, to select a route for the ror i in that valley. The trip, which now occupies from eight to twenty d^ys, and can only be made during four months in the year, will require only about fifteen hours by rail at all seudns. The Syracuse Standard says of the recent meeting of clergymen and others at Bishop Huntington's Episcopal residence, to carry out the measures instituted last February against the Oneida Community ; The Com munity has taken council with some of the best lawyers in this part of the State, and since the February meeting has been quietly at work collecting testimony to be used in legal proceedings. Samples of the literature the Communists at Wallingford and Oneida have been circulating through the medium of the United Stales mails have been sent to the committee, and these are bad enough to be covered by the name of obscene. Other testimony of a more positive character has also been obtained, it is said, which stamps the Oneida Community as far worse in their practices than the pglygamists of Utah. On this latter testimony, the arrest of Noyes, the leader of these Socialists, is to be made, and his trial will be pushed by gentlemen pre pared to get at the foundation of the thing.

Chicago, June 22. —One of the armed companies, which under a recent act of the Legislature, must shortly cease to exist, be came involved in a difficulty with some un armed people, this afternoon, which resulted in the death of several of the latter. The Bohemian Siiarpshooters' Association, com posed of some twenty individuals, had a pic nic to-day at Silver Leaf Grove, corner of Ogden avenue and Western avenue. During a dance one of the sharpshooters engaged in a quarrel witli Yolney Clark, a visitor, and after using him up pretty badly, had him ejected from the ground. He stated his griev ance to the crowd outside the gates, and gaining some sympathy there, inaugurated an indiscriminate throwing of sticks and stones into the enclosure where th* picnic was being held. The Lieutenant of the company, Frank Ladwelc, ordered the long roil sound ed, and the bayonets fixed. A charge was immediately made toward the gate, end the crowd were bayoneted and sabred until they fell back. The company re-formed outside the gale, in single line, facing the street, and loading their guns, fired a volley into the crowd. They Immediately reloaded and again fired, each sharpshooter picking a man. It is stated three or four volleys were fired in ail. The weapons used were muzzle loading Springfield muskets, the cartridges being composed of nine buckshot each. About a dozen men were wounded and three are said to have siuce died. As soon as the affair became known, two squads of police re paired to the scene and arrested the whole company- They formed in marching order, under the American flag, and proceeded to the West Madison street station, where they are now incarcerated, charged witli murder, aud guarded by a heavy detachment of po lice.

Germany on She Silver (nnllaa Bbrlik, June 20.—In the Reichstag Herr Delburch presented an interpellation in re gard to the Government discontinuing the coinage of silver. He said it was necessary to clearly define the situation, especially » in the debates of the British Parliament the question whether Germany intended to mod ify the law fixing upon a gold standard, had been trebled as an open one. Bismarck replied that he did not know the views of the Federal Governments, but lie himself did not think it expedient to unneces sarily commit himself to an expression of opinion upon a question of such moment. He thought the interpellation had not been well considered, but treating the motion from a business point of view, he could assure the House that neither the Federal Council nor the Prussian ministry had mooted the ques tion of the modification of the gold standard law. The suspension of silver «al» waa a measure ot expediency adopted pending the increase of value. Any doubt respecting the stability of the German coinage legislation was wholly unwarranted. He had never dis cussed the question with the Minister of Fin ance. The gentleman from whom Lord Odo Russell, the British Ambassador, had derived his information that the German Government is preparing to introduce and adopt the doab le standard as in France, must have been bet ter informed than the Imperial government. The president of the Imperial Bank, ad dressing the House, said the government had already lost by its »les of silver 92,600,000 marks. The Newa 1 b Pasta New York, June 21.—A Herald's Paris dispatch says the news of the death of the Prince Imperial though known in London last evening, only reached Paris at 7 o'clock yesterday morning. Not a single Paris news paper contained a notice of the event, which is of greater interest to France than to any other country. Such is the enterprise of the French press. The event may be said to have greatlv shocked the public tniud, though it doubtless helps to consolidate existing insti tutions. Many Republicans participated in the general regret at the untimely end of the brave young prince. Regarding Bonapartiste, the party is over whelmed by the Prince's death. They try to put a good face on the matter, and may sub stitute another pretender to the throne of France ; but'his will be of no avail. With the death of the Prince imperial the last hope is gone from the Uonapartist party. Cassag nac, the recognized leader of the Imperialists in an article in his journal, LePays ; after an outburst of grief for the dead young Prince, put the question, " Does the empire die with the Prince ?" and he answers no. There is an heir whom the Prince designed should be j his successor, Prince Victor, the youngest son of Prince Jerome Napoleon, a youth of I warm heart and bright intellect, whom his ; pious mother had rendered worthy of us, aud worthy of France. Were there no Prince ! Victor, there would be still the great dorni wliicli prevails ami Im nant idea, a system on ! presses itself. Were even Bonapartism in i peril imperialism would be stronger tiisn ' ever. _, . , to > Wlsm)W 0j . ASS ,, an . e lot . a „ su , , mul s to :w»\ 4 o jmr rooeiv«) at J. M. Boww' Fur niturv* Wareroom.
