R. E. FISK, - - - Editor. SH »AT, MAY », 187ft. - ...LJJB B •VBAAILB0A» ITTEBE8TS. The time ln» come when, to tbecitirens of Helena, the .question of securing a railroad «wiMweiin» from our city with one or more of the main-trank line» acroee the continent .shookl overtop all «then, whether social, material, or political. The capital and energy of oor citizen« are sufficient, if they issue the Bat, and hack it unitedly- and determinedly, to make a rakrer. l to our doors an accom plished fart inside of three years. We fully realize the coot of the enterprise, and have matur ely mcaswred the meaning of our words in the above assertion. When the announcement was made (since shown to have been premature) that the Northern Pa cific had «staUiabed their location by the Bozeman and Deer Lodge pastes, leaving us sixty-five miles to the north of their line, our people, with an iafpulse of enthusiasm,, gave some manifestation of trbat they resolved to do. They applied by telegraph for a char ter, and our Delegate, within four days there after, had the bill introduced in Congress. There is little doubt that it will become a law, and we must gird ourselves up for the work to be accomplished. A narrow gauge road from Helena to the Three Forks of the Missouri, sixty-five miles in length, as part; of the North and South line, doulil be built and equipped at a cost not exceeding $1,000,000. If Helena will undertake to cany the cost of this portion, there lf> little doubt that with the aid of other counties and communities and corporations interested in the direct or indirect benefits of the road, the balance could be accomplished. We hare «Dotted to Helena a heavy share in the cost of this U'jc, even /should it be deter mined to build a wide gauge road. But can Helena assume. any such amount of respon sibility, and how can she provide (or and cany the burden 7 The money put into this road is not withdrawn from the countty, nor from the active capital of it The million of dollars required will first be represented by the road itself, which will always be worth the cost and yearly enhancing in value.

If we raise a fourth of that sum the road it self will be good security ob which to borrow the other three-fourths. And even that one fourth that we may have to raise will not be wanted at once, and the whole of it would be spent in our vicinity and come back to us again, and we could make the whole amount between the time the road was begun and the time when the last oi the money would have to be paid. We want our citizens to awake fullv to their interests, and prepare for con certed and resolute action. railroads will. Remember, the wealth created Wednesday, May 1st, the Territorial Dem ocratic Central Committee met in this city. Five of the nine organized counties were represented, viz: Lewis and Clarke, Jeffer son, Meagher, Deer Lodge, and Missooln. The 1st of July was settled upon as the time and Deer Lodge the place for holding the Democratic Territorial Convention. Dele gates to the Convention were apportioned among the several counties as follows : Beaverhead, 8; Chouteau, 2; Deer Lodge, 15; Gallatin, 6; Jefferson, 6; Lewis and Clarke, 15; Missoula, 8; Meagher, 5 ; Madi son, 8. The Committee recommend that the delegates be chosen on the 22d of June. Several members of the Democratic Committee, in session iu this city yesterday, are Sold to favor Maj. Magiunia for the Del egate nomination. First on the list is the Chairman of the Committee; second, one of tbs members from Dear Lodge ; third, one of Che Jefferson county members ; fourth, the y mlwir from Meagher county. The pronjeclB of oar Dem. cotem. are bright UREFXEV ASB BROWN The proceedings at Cincinnati terminated yesterday, May 3d. in the nomination of Horace Greeley, of New York, for President, and B. Grate Brown, of Missouri, for Vice President. The platform of principles adopted is es sentially Republican in its main features—an outline of which appears in our midnight re port printed on the second page. The reso lutions, among other deciarutibns, embrace the cardinal doctrine of the Republican party •—"the equality of all men before the law and no re-opening of the questions settled by the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments.'' Amnesty to all engaged in the rebellion is favored, which is not dissimi lar to the expression made by Grant in lus message to Congress. The conflicting theo ries and doctrines connected with the question of tariff are quietly disposed of by remitting ; them to the Congressional districts for settle ment. "The maintenence of public credit against repudiation in every form," and "the recognition of the services and sacrifices of the soldiers and sailors," are tests from the noble sermons of Republicanism preached these seven years and more. Save the "one term" principle, embodied as a plank in their platform, the Liberals have not widely de parted from the true teachings of the Re publican party. The candidates and platform are just now being subjected to discus; ion and criticism .by the press of the country. The ticket seems to sadly disappoint the Democrats, who were inclined to favor Adams rather than Gréefey, and were hopeful fliat the Mas sachusetts statesman might be the choice of the Liberals for President. Previous to the Convention (April 83d) the New York World ' (leading organ of the P.niocracy) said: "We watch with some solicitude to see whether, when its proceedings are concluded, It will be our duty to write an epitaph or cel ebrate a christening." The World, in its, issue of this morning, sees no christening to celebrate, and therefore addresses "itself to " epitaph" writing. It " expresses profound surprise at the result of the Cincinnati Con vention, and says it cannot endorse nor bos it reason to believe the Democracy will sup port it." The Philadelphia Age, (Dem,) is still more outspoken and calls for a straight out Democratic nomination. The New York Po»t (atrti Grant Rep.) is severe on the can didates and platform, and withdraws from wr-Bbzh-iicTLnj^râî movement. Other leadtrijjour fou&als are heard from, such as the Timen ante rossing^m «! croial Advertiser, (Rep.,) Express, ; Dem.,) and (Springfield Republican, (Lib.,) Hole,inch setting forth their views, the two latter dis- p okin g [a approval of (be nomination of ; JreeJey. Reports from other parts of fhecoimtiy or xpress a variety of impressions of the Con mtion and what has grown out of it, and of ( ie messages telegraphed are conflicting in orte extreme. The tone of the Democratic theses# leads us to infer that the Democratic ia rty will pull square away from the Liber is, abandon the "possum dodge," and noin iate a separate party ticket. Here at home, it is amusing to note the v i den t readiness with which the Gazette the callows the Liberal platform. "Such a c ket," If remarks this morning, " nomliiated by,y 8De |j a convention, On so liberal a platform, with so much good feeling and harmony, is certainly a strong on'e. Should the Dpifloc racy endorse it, there is scarcely a doubt that it will win." It will be remembered with what facility the Gazette slid off with the Labor Reformers, complimented Davis, their nominee, stated that the Columbus Conven tion ivas a very "significant affair," and want ed, if the Democracy would give the Labor Reform ticket its support. Now it is equally warm in eulogizing the Liberal candidates and platform, and asks the Democracy for permission to run up the names of Greeley and Brow n. The Gazette will, ere long, take another tack, and come out square footed for a straight Democratic Presidential nomination. Let us see if our predictions do not prove to be correct. so consent to . ., 0 ' P« IIO btUllIXllX* a UIKRAH FOB GREELEY." We little expected to live to see the day that an ont and out Democrat, of the true Southern type, would swing his hat and hur rah for Horace Greeley. Such a spectacle, nevertheless, we wi'nessed on the streets of Helena yesterday. It did our soul good to see it. We [Hindered the political situation, and wondered if the millenium was not near at hand, or had not aireadv come.

Considerable wheat remains uugrountl in this neighborhood still, but the twolfirst-class mills will have floured it all before the next crop is ; it,r,.ci , «,1 thrashed. Grashoppere came into the Stinking-water valley direct from Utah last fall, just in time to fleposjt .their qggs and die before winter sei in, odd some apprehensions are felt os to the damage liable to ensue to the crop soon to spring up. The eggs are deposited about an inch in the ground in bunches of from forty to one hundred, and I was shown by Mr. Har rison places from whence we unearthed a half dozen of these bunchos in an inch square. A few more days and they will be out, and may possibly go elsewhere to devour and destroy. But a small portion of the valley, however, contains eggs in any considerable numbers. The assertions that the Jefferson valley was ! to receive the N. P. Railroad, ^nd that the land was to be withdrawn from market on the 21st of April, caused a big conmiotion along the whole designated route. Many farmers, who desired to make homesteads, have bor rowed mopey at "3 per cent.," or sold off poor stock af ruinons prices to pay for their pre-emptions. Old "reliable information" should be a little more chary with such bits of news. Assessor Geo. Golin, who has had ample opportunities for correctly ascertaining, tells me that, outside of Texas cattle which were driven, in into and poor, and some freight cattle in the same condition, not more than one per cent, of the stock in Mndison county perished the [>ost winter—a showing highly creditable Jo stock-subsisting futilities of the country. , Virginia City, April 29.—The capital is just now' in a state of great finaneia' quiet, owing, mainly, to the continued backw ard spring, which as 'yM keeps the doors" to Nature's gold safes locked..

Proceeding« of »lie Cincinnati Conven tion. i Cincinnati, May 1.—The following is a synopsis of Matthews' speech on assuming the temporary chai rman ship of the Liberal Convention. After thanking the Convention in appropriate terms, he saut : | The thing which 1 prize most in myself as ^ trtftsurc £ guartled am [ to love, and to ! wdn ess in the breasts of others is this, that tne t i me j ias come when a large and intiuen tiiil portion of the American people are de termined and will no longer be as dogs to wear the collar ol party. [Applause.] lhe f or Convention was limited to mem [, ers ot the Republican party. I am not ashamed of that name ; so far as the Repub* lican party, under the Providence of God, has been instrumental in maintaining the in tein .j t y D f t j, e (; n ion, and establishing the equality of all citizens before the law, they are entitled to the congratulations of this generation and the approval of generations to come. 1 see m this assemblage, this re bcîllon again8t the Republican party, the highest ettiagy that could be pronounced upon that party. It hits sufficient integrity to be gin the 'work of reforming itself by itself. Parties cannot live upon their reputations. The Republican party deserves to live, not la-cause it has done good things, but only as it shows its present ability to continue the work of reform. A deep and earnest con viction has spread universally through the hearts of the people that the war of the re bellion is ended, that peace has come, and as war has ended so ought to end military rule and military principles, everything that is arbitrary, everything that corrupts. everything years ago, and it was thought au auspicious iomen, "Let us have Peace:" but we have not had peace. The speaker referred to the condition of the South, where the so-called governments were bankrupting tile people, the power usurped by strangers for the purpose of cor ruptly enriching themselves, and public office used as property, not aa trust. In ev ery de partment of tlio government the slow poison of corruption has pervaded the whole admin affairs with pain and sorrow, but can no longer afford the responsibility of partner ship in such wrong. Their duty is to lead out the column in orner to restore the bless ings of a good, sound, just and honest gov ernment. After the close of the session at Exposition Hall, the canvassing for Presidential candi seem mKch improvc d, and some of Davis's earnest supporters appear that keeps alive and fans the dying embers j ot the dead past. The cry came up four . . . s. . . „ ... istration from bead to foot. Republicans see , and experience tins condition of public to have been transferred to Greeley. The support of the Democracy is assured in a hearty editorial in the Enquirer. It is claimed that he would [roll 50,000 Republican votes in Pennsylvania, and more in New York, and that in Ohio and the West his name would excite the greatest enthusiasm. Among the Southern delegates he is the strong est candidate in that section. The New York delegation held a meeting this afternoon, and after a heated discussion, it was resolved to cast the vote of the State as a unit for Greeley. : i Notwithstanding the furore for Greeley, the frieuds of Davis continue confident, and report the Virginia and a part of the Iowa dél itation added K» his support. This evening Pennsylvania is reported ready to go solid for Davis, after a i It f ^ vote for Curtin, 'erley Poore and others, that Davit is still the strongest candi date in Ohio and New England. The supporters of Adams have been at work in the meetings of the delegations from Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin, where it was voted to support Adams solidly. With Indiana s vote, Adams would be nom inated at an early ballot, but at this hour the Vote of Indiana is divid«i. Adams, Davis and Greeley remain promi nently before the convention, with nearly equal strength, while Trumbull, Palmer, Brown, Chase, Fenton and other candidates are virtually out of the way.

Clay and Senator Schurz are prominently mentioned in connection with the chairmanship of the convention. Senator Fenton gave the house the various constructions placed on the sudden movement on the tariff plank, which is not yet settled, but it is understood that the Revenue Reform ______ tained in the Missouri call. Eighty thousand words in specials were sent from here yesterday by the W. U.

Cincinnati, May 2.—'The convention re assembled at three o'clock, and the hull was densely crowded. The committee on perma nent organization reported Schurz as Presi dent, with a Vice President from each State. Among the Vice Presidents are W. M. Rock erby, of California, Geo. G. Lyon, of Nevada, and J. W. Johnson, of Oregon. Schurz was conducted to the chair amid tumultuous applause, and being presented to the convention said in substance : "No one could survey this vast assemblage from all parts of the country without emotions of astonishment and hope. Astonishment, considering the spontaneity of impulse which brought it together, and hope, considering the purpose for which it had met. The Re publican party could well be congratulated that such a meeting was possible. He re viewed the history of the movement, and alluded at length to the causes from which it. sprung. He spoke of the corruption ui the civil service, a'disregard of law, unconstitu tional assumptions of [tower, the laxity of public opinion, etc. Referring to the condi tion of the South, he said : These States were " u ff c . r f ng fora policy of conciliation, and a gpijegmansliip of common sense. Of the convention, he said: It exceeded the most sanguine expectations of those who called it. It would seem that nothing could withstand a movement so irresistablv inspiring. In deed, the breath of victory'is in the very air. We can succeed only by throwing behind us State pride and personal preferences. He insisted on an honest and straightforward platform, and statesmen for candidates, not merely popular available men. Referring to the cry, " An vbody to heatGrant!" he said: , m J rt . ^ lhat was wtmte d; not a change of persons, but the overthrow of a pernicious system; not another President, merely, but a better President. He closed by saying: They stood on the threshold of a great victory, which would surely lie theirs if they truly deserved it." The Committee on Credentials reported against the recognition of Laura Deforce Gordon as a delegate, but tendered her and other ladies the courtesies of the hall. The committee also reported that Colonel W. W. Roekerby was entitled to east the entire vote of California. The motion to adopt the report, except the resolution relative to California, led to a dis cussion, during the progress of which B. R* Nickerson, who was excluded by the report, said, amid many interruptions, that he hail been a resident of California for 22 years and of the citv of San Francisco for the past 10 years. He claimed to be Secretary of the State Central Committee, and that he had been requested to come and take a seat in the convention. He considered it an outrage that a gentleman who represented a little mining district of the interior should be allow«! to carry the w hole State in his pocket. The Chairman of the committee stated that those who had asked to be admitted had not been residents of California for from one to ten years, and that Col. Roekerby alone was entitled to admission. While the debate was proceeding Mrs. Gordon took a position in front of the plat form and persistently sought to be recog nized, but never got beyond "Mr. President." After the report was adopted she secured momentary attention, but the President said 1 the convention hail decided that the lady was notdelegate. She still persisting in lier at tempt to speak, a storm of hisses arose in termingled with cries of "get out." The lady subsided. The Committee on Rules then submitted a report, which w'as adopted.

The Caluf(unia question again came up and the delegate stated that Nickerson was a resi dent of California, and would stump the State for the ticket. Mr. Nickerson was upon motion admitt«! as a delegate. The delegate from California desired that his colleagues who had been refused seats as delegates be invited to take seats by courtesy. Carried.

A resolution authorizing State Delegations to form a Central Committee, was adopt«!. E. H.
