January 14th, the Chilians advanced under a heavy fog unob served, until the Chilian's second line was within 400 metres of the enemy and their first line engaged in a band to hand conflctfor two hours. The Peruvians maintained the fight for 12 hours, until 4 p. in., when, being nearly flanked by the Chilians, who lost heavily, they were obliged to retire. Two days later the Peruvian reserve of 6,000 young'men of Lima, routed the Chilian advance, firing from breastworks for five hours when the Cliilans forced their way into the town and reduced it to ashes. The losses in killed and wounded in the two battles is estimated at 9,000 Peruvians and 7,000 Chilians. The Peruviau loss in material is immense and the army of the centre is entirely without the means to carry on the war. The Chilians entered Lima on the 17th inst„ without re sistance and established a local government with Godai, former Chilian minister in Ecua dor, as perfect. Capital orderly. The populace burned the Chilian quarters on the 15th of January on account of the alleged enmity of of the Chilians to their country. A Montana Case Decided. Washington, Feb. 12.— The assay com missioners who have been engaged in the U. S. mint at Philadelphia for several days testing the coinage of the various mints of the coun try, have completed their work and will re port the result of their test to the president in a few days. It is understood certain defects were discovered in the coinage executed at the Carson mint, but that none such coin had been put into circulation. The post office depaitment- was recently informed of the loss of a sum of money which was being transported in regis tered mail packages trom Helena, Mont., and. asked if the contractor of the coach route on which the loss occurred, was not responsible for it. The postmaster-general rendered a decision on the subject to-day in which he says the report of the inspector for this de partment who made.the investigation, indi cated that the loss was accidental and without fault of the contractor, but were it otherwise, and it could be shown that the loss was at tributable to negligence or even to fraud of the contractor, it is not perceived that any right of action would thereby accrue to this depaitment, nor does the loss of mail matter without fault on the part of the contractor constitute ground of forfeiture as agreed upon if the contracts fail as presented do not afford this department the means of repairing the loss referred to. The Situation of the Army of Fern. New York, Feb. 12.—Pierola, command er in chief and president of Peru, could do nothing to withstand the effect of the surprise of the 13tb of November and the slaughter of the 15th. He fled with his escort into the in terior. Before leaving lie gave orders that if any of the Peruvian officers desired to save themselves by flight they were privileged to do so. None made the attempt aud on the surrender of Lima and Callao the forts, bat teries and ships were blown up or burned. Several forts were bh wn up with consider able loss to the invaders, but there was not the slightest evidence that the city was so generally ruined as the Peruvians claimed. Gen. Lacoura, commander of the Peruvian reserve, is accused of treason, cowardice and all sorts of crimes aud was forced to take ref uge in the British legation. He went to G.taqui by Vantiago, and on the way suffer ed many indignities at the hands of the pop uiace at various ports and from the Peruvian passengers on board. The army of the cen tre, the finest Peru ever put in the field, has been completely beaten, demoralized and practically wiped out of existence. Mentoro was appointed commander of the army of the north and Solos of the south. The army of the north consists of a number of so-called battalions without means of mobilization and having neither headquarters nor organi zation, and the army of the south, with head quarters at Arequipa. numbers less than 10, 000 men, and any operations from that quar ter against Tacna ami Ariea is said to he im possible. Astrologers and soothsayers should be of good courage this year, if there be any pre monitory virtue in the curious combinations of numbers that may he evolved from the date 1881. Not only does it read the same backward and forward, which only occurs every 110 years, but the magic number nine is interwoven in it in a reinaikable way. The sum of all four is the same as the first two, 18, which added together or divided by two makes nine. Multiply the whole by nine, and the product, 16,929, contains two nines, while the sum of the digits is 27, or three nines, or, added, one nine. Place the 18 un der the 81 and add ; the sum is 99 ; subtract, and the remainder is 63, or 7 times 9. Al most innumerable similar combinations may lie formed, convincing the mathematician that the mythical Mother Sbipton could not have hit upon a more remarkable date than this for the threatened smash-up of things in general, An Englishman had the bad luck the other day to receive more than twenty shots in the face from an indiscriminate and excited young sportsman. His eyes escaped by wonderful luck, but shaving was a difficult job for some time, so lie called in the assistance of a Lon don barber, saying: "Be careful, for I was badly shot a few days ago." "All! just come j from Ireland, I suppose, sir?" airily remarked the professor of the razor. CONGRESSIONAL SENATE. Washington, Feb. 12__In the senate the credentials of Platt were presented by Bayard and filed. A joint resolution was passed inviting for eigd nations to participate in the exhibition of 1883. Morgau announced that the committee on the electoral count would not report this ses sion. Discussion on the postal appropriation bill and ocean mail amendment was then re sumed. HOUSE. The Eades inter-oceanic bill was reported to the house. On motion of Cox the whole subject was tabled by an almost unanimous viva voice vote. The bill legislating for the importation of materials used in the construction or repair of ships in foreign trade, including trade be tween Atlantic and Pacific pons, was, on mo tion of Frye, amended to provide that copper and spelter of foreign product manufactured in the United States in use in the construction or repairs of such vessels may be imported in bond under regulations as the secretary of the treasury may prescribe, and on proof that sucti materials have been used and manufac tured for the purposes aforesaid no duties shall be charged thereon. Bright offered an amendment admitting salt free of duty, but it was ruled out ot or der. Atkins reported back the Jeannette relief bill. Thompson, of Kentucky, 'objected and it was referred to the committee of the whole. The house, in committee of the whole con sidered the river and harbor bill. Voices iroui Itm l'crrltorv. During the past week the Silver Creek dis trict has sent in the following gold bars : Albion, $2,000 ; Gloster, $2,500 ; Hickey & Bluebird, $4,000; Belmont, $5,000. The Teton river lias subsided. Forty or fifty head of cattle were drowned, considera ble cordwood was washed away and houses and fences more or less damaged by the flood. At one place the riyer was a mile wide.— Herald. Mrs. Allen, a young mother, started last week on horseback, with her infant dhild. from Sherman & Sarter's log camp on White's trail, in search of more friendly shelter. She was found some hours later by Lem. Lewis iu an exhausted condition, her feet badly frozen and the horse she was riding worn out. Mr. Lewis put her on his own horse and took her to his home, preventing her from perish ing with cold__ Husbandman. It is said that business is duller in town than it has been any winter during the past live years. The almost impassable condition of t,lie roads in every direction, owing to the unusually deep snow, has no doubt something to do with it. It is next to impossible for farmers to take produce to market.— Courier. The city election, iast Monday, passed oil quietly, and a light vote was polled. Three of the retiring aldermen—Messrs. Nelson, Deyarmon and Clark—have been reflected, and of the others Messrs. Hickman and Har rington have occupied seats in the council before. Mr. Alward is the only member of the board who makes his debut iu the alder manic arena. Mayor Barber was re-elected without opposition.— Madisonian. Although we have had such heavy snow falls here during the past winter there have been but a few inches at Fort McLeod, N.W. territory, and the cattle belonging to the In dians, as well as those of the settlers, have wintered with no loss whatever, feeding upon the ranges, and not having been fed hay nr sheltered a single day during winter —Hirer Press. A stock owner residing near Deer Lodge was out iu the hills recently for the purpose of seeing how many of his band had perished during* the "cold snap." Some ten miles from home, and up in the mountains, he dis covered three of his cattle not seen for an equal number of years. In appearance they resembled buffalo, but were much shyer.— New North- IFest. In the "History of Dueling in all Coun tries" we are given this anecdote : "The late earl of Cardigan, the same gallant nobleman who led the mad and ever-memorable charge at Balaklava, was once riding in all the splen dor of his uniform as colonel of the 10th Hussars, in the streets ot Brighton, where his regiment was then quartered. As his lordship was turning the corner of a street leading to the Steine, the stalwart driver of a great wagon was ordered to move a little on one side, as the street was narrow. The big boned driver responded with a grin, and, scooping up a handful of dirt, threw it at the horseman, bespattering his brilliant gold but tons, laces, tags, frogs aud filigree, and all the pomp and circumstance of glorious war. Whereupon Earl Cardigan instantly dis mounted, gave his bridle, with his sword and satiretash, into the hands of a bystander, and then and there, with the Englishman's na tional weapons, gave the big wagoner the very best thrashing ue ever had in his life, leaving him with eyes, mouth and criuison streaming nose, in the worst possible coudi lion for his photograph, amid the shouts ot laughter and applause of the assembled crowd. Quickly making his way to his horse, his lordship mounted and rode off to his mil itary duties." Joata Hilling*. The man who knows a thing, and can tell it in the fewest words, iz the hardest kind ov a man to beat in a krnss examinashun.

"Is your wife a democrat or a republican?" asked oue Rockland citizen of another in a store this morning. "She's neither," was the prompt response; and then, glancing cautious ly around and sinking his voice to a hoarse whisper, he explained, "She's a home ruler." —Rockland Courier. of of to to a 1 DEATH mr HON. OSCAR A. SEDRAK. Memorial Pmecfints af the LegisIMIve Aaaembly. HOUSE—Tblrty-SIxtR Day. MORNING session. Blake announced that the death of his colleague, Hon. Oscar A. Sedinan, of Madison, took place in this city at 5 p. m., yesterday, the 13th i list. The speaker appointed Cullen, of Lewis & Clarke county, and Eastman, of Madison, a special committee to inform the couucil of the sad event, and to invite that body to meet the house at 11 o'clock, iu the hall af the house. The chaplain oflered a solemn and appro priate prayer, and alluded feelingly to the great loss the family and community had sustained iu the death of Mr. Sedman. Blake, Cullen, De Wolfe, Pärchen and Gar lock were appointed a committee to draft resolutions appropriate to the occasion. The house then look a rcess for one hour. The first notice that most persons had of the death of Mr. Sedman was on seeing crape affixed to the door-knob of the house. The vacant seat was appropriately draped, and the vacant chair was turned backward to his desk. The members took their seats in silence and witli sorrowful faces. At 11 o'clock, the members of tlie couucil, preceded by tiie president and officers, ap peared iu the hall of tiie house, and on being seated, the president called the members to order. The clerk called the roll of both houses, and a noticeable silence marked the call of Sedinau's name. The president then announced the object for winch the two houses had assembled to gether. Blake, from the committee ou resolutions, presented the following : Whereas, Hou. Oscar Alfred Sedman, a member of the council of the 11th legislative assembly, and of tiie house of representatives of this legislative assembly, passed to the im mortal life on tbe 13th day of the present month ; therefore be it Resolved, By the council and house of representatives : 1st.—That by the death of Mr. Sedman the people of the territory have been deprived of the services of a faithful and upright legisla tor, and that Madison county has sustained a great loss ot an efficient and high-minded representative, 2d.—That a joint committee, consisting of one member of the council and one member of the house of representatives be appointed to accompany the remains of tiie deceased to Virginia City. 3.i.—That as a further token of our respect for tiie memory of the deceased, the house of representatives and couucil do adjourn for this day. 4tli.— That the clerks of the council and house of representatives are hereby directed to spread upon the journals these resolutions on the 15th ins'., aud that on the journals of this day the following entry shall be made: "IN MEMOHIAM HON. OSCAR ALFRED SEDMAN. Born March 9th, 1838. Died February 13lli, 1881." 5th.—That we hereby tender to the widow ami children of our late associate the sym pathy of all the members of this convention in their hour of bereavement, and request the clerk of the house to trausmit to the widow of Mr. Sedman a copy ol these resolu tions. Mr. Blake then spoke as follows : Fur the first time in the history of Montana a member of the legislative assembly in the time of its session, has been called away from earth. Tiie name of Hon. Oscar A. Sedman will no longer be borne upon the roll of the house. Upon occasions of this solemnity many persons express their feelings in the most appropriate manner by silence. While 1 have wished at this time any action could be controlled by this sentiment, 1 deem it proper,as the colleague of Mr. Sedman iu rep resenting Madison county, as well as his neighbor aud friend, to render to him the tribute which his life iu its manifold relations demands. Upon the ninth day of March, 1838, iu Sweden, Mr. Sedman was born. He re mained at tiie place of his birth until the age of seventeen years, when he emigrated to tue United States. Pushing westward from the Atlantic coast, he was a pioneer of Colorado, and iu 1863 became a miner iu Alder Gulch, where lie has since resided. During this period, comprising the chief part of his years and industry, Mr. Sedtnau lias been identi fied with all the interests of the territory. He has been au ardent supporter of the system of free schools, and served as a trustee of his district in order that education might thrive. He lias been associated with the Masonic fra ternity, tiie Royal Arcli Chapter and Knights Templar nearly t» enty years, and discharged in these organizations the duties of a number of their offices. In 1S78 and 1880 the voters of Madison county thrust upon him the mem bership of the lllli and 12th legislative as semblies, and he performed witb integrity and ability his labors iu the couucil and house of representatives. While Mr. Sedman suffered from the dis advantages ot liis instruction ill a foreign tongue, he sought by untiring efforts to over come these obstacles, and achieved a remark able success in acquiring tiie English lan guage. But lie was endowed in the highest degree with tiie genius which is knowu as common sense. I have known few men who wielded a greater influence over their fellow citizens, and my associates upon the floor of the house will testify willingly to this fact. Mr. Sedman renounced early ills allegiance to the kingdom of his nativity and gladly qualified as a citizen of the United Slates. In this matter he was animated with the zeal ofa convert, and no person showed a deeper love for his adopted country aud its republican in stitutions. Mr. Sedman was married ten yeais ago, and a widow and four children are now mourning their irreparable loss. He lias left no other relatives within tiie United States, it was one of his most pleasant duties to write letters to his aged mother, who is living amidst the familiar scenes ot his youth in Sweden. Ue who should have been the last has been tiie first, aud she who should have been the first will be the last. Within the domestic circle his conduct could not have been surpassed for gentleness and affection. In bis neighborhood Ills life was illuminated by acts of charity and kindness. to of ly , No event has shown more clearly the un certainty of human knowledge concerning the mystery of life. One month ago, accompanied by his family, Mr. Sedman began the journey to transact in this place the high business which had been devolved upon him by the people of Madison county. Their friends, contemplating with alarm tbe rigors of a win ter unprecedented in its severity, witnessed witb sad misgivings the children while they moved toward Helena. It would have caus ed no emotions of surprise to the citizens of his section of the territory if the electric wire had flashed the tidings that one of the little ones had been translated. But no one thought that the sword of death was suspend ed over his head. When the eye glanced at the stalwart form of Mr. Stedman, in the prime ot ma -hood, it appeared that nature had lavished upon him sufficient strength to resist all tbe attacks of the ills that flesh is heir to, and he would have beeu considered foolish who would have predicted his death during this session. But the crisis came. The battle with disease was won by the weak children ; it was lost by the strong man. It is a consolation to know that in bis hour of suffering all the aid within human power was cheerfully rendered by the Hands of friends. Thus was the private and public task of Mr. Sedman performed. And from our earth ly sight on yesterday, with the transitory glories of the setting sun, this kind and loving husband, fattier and son, the wise law-maker and good citizen departed forever. During the delivery of the speech many shed tears, and much emotion was exhibited by members. Appropriate words of eulogy, sympathy and condo lence were spoken by Cullen and De Wolfe. The president of tbe council then ordered the roll of the council and house to be called on the adoption of the resolutions. Each member rose to his feel as his name was call ed and stood in silence until the call was com pleted. , The president then named Mr. Morris of the council ana Mr. Eastman of the house as the committee called for in the resolutions to accompany the remains of Mr. Sedman to Virginia City. The convention then adjourned to meet at their respective halls at 10 o'clock to-morrow morning. THE FEHIN1NE WOULD.

The richest mining districts of Mexico are those near the borders of the republie, where an abundant supply of timber for mining purposes is found near the base of the detach ed mountains, in which metalliferous veins are found. Lands, mines and mining real estate are not taxed iu Mexico, tiie only impost being a mint tax on bulliou. Mining laws there are more liberal than in the United States. Min ing ar.d agricultural machinery are introduc ed free of duty. The anxiety of the better class of Mexicans to have Americans invest their capital iu mining and other industrial enterprises, and the almost absolute control which the intelligent few exercise over the masses of the population, guarantee a protec tion to such investment equal to that afford ed in the western territories o' the United States. The climate in the mining regions is favorable to outdoor operations during the entire year. An exchange says : "Onions are an un failing cure for diphtheria.
