Fenonal. —Mr. Daniels, of the firm of Cutter & Daniels, Post Traders at Fort Ellis, is in the city, —Mr. James Dixon, of Missoula, gave us a call to-day. Mr. D. is en route to the States on a visit to his friends. —Col. Sanders failed to get away to the Philadelphia Convention, to which he was delegate. Legal business prevented. —A. J. Simmons, Special Indian Agent, and Deputy U. S. Marshal Hard, arrived yes terday from Benton. They look and act a good deal better than dead men yet. —Col. Viall, Superintendent of Indian Af fairs, arrived home from Washington on Sat urday. The Col. has been absent about five months, and comes Iwick looking hale and hearty as ever. — O. B. O'Bannon and Thomas Cummings, of Deer Lodge, Col. W. S. Scribner, of Mis soula, and Capt. J. V. Stafford, of Meagher, were among those in attendance upon the meeting of the Republican Territorial Com mittec on Saturday. —Mr. David McCranor, recently of Deer Lodge county, but now of Madison, is in the city. Mr. McCranor was, we believe, the first Republican county official elected in tills Territory—succeeding to the Sheriffalty of Madison in 1867. He has lately, we under stand, in company with Mr. B. Hamilton, bought out A. B. Bateman, of Sheridan, and will carry on Merchandising and hotel-keep ing at that place—one of the most sprightly and thriving of the agricultural centres of Montana. Dlutinffuislird Visitor Expected. We learn from Major J. R. Boyce, 8r., that he has just received a letter from the Rev. Bishop Enoch M. Marvin, of 8t. Louis, in which he states that he will leave that city for Montana on the first day of July next, arriving in Helena somewhere about the 9th inst. We are pleased to record the anticipated visit of Bishop Marvin, as lie is one of the most widely known and eminent divines in the entire connection of the Southern Metho dist Church, and as a pulpit orator, we are informed that he is one of the most eloquent and popular in the South or West. He will find a cordial welcome among the Montanians, and we doubt not that his visit will prove of eminent interest and benefit, not only to his own immediate church, but to the people generally of every portion of the Territory which he may find time to favor witli his presence.. We presume that in due time notice will be given of bis appointments. He will preach in Helena on the second Sunday in July, and it is expected that he will remain some six weeks in the Territory. Yield of Mine«. The Belcher paid last month a dividend of #312,000; the Raymond & Ely, #210,000; Meadow Valley, #60,000; Crown Point, $480, 000;—this latter is the largest dividend ever paid by any of our companies in a single month. The Chollar Potosi yielded one week 1,000 tons of ore, assaying $40.70. The Hale & Norcross, 900 tons; the Savage, 960 tons, assaying #34.86 per ton. Tlie daily yield of the Crown Point is 380 tons. In the month of April they took out 11,478 tons of ore, which worked $65.07 per ton. The Cliollar Potosi yields nearly 200 tons per day, and the Savage 100 tons, assaying $38.00.—Virginia (Nev.) Enterprise. When we get our mines open and worked on the grand scale necessary to handle such quantities of ore, we can roll out bullion to equal if not exceed the above almost fabulous sums. ' Prompt Settlement. Mr. Z. II, Daniels, post trader at Ft. Ellis, whose house and stock of goods were totally destroyed by fire about two months ago, had insurance to the amount of $3,800 in the North Missouri Company. The agent, Mr. Epenshied, was sent out to adjust the claim, visited the Fort, made his report, and in a few days the order was received to pay the claim in full. Mr. Daniels desires to return his thanks to the agent and the company for their promptness and dispatch in satisfactorily adjusting and paying his claim. Eveiything was settled up and the money all paid over within two weeks after the arrival of tlie agent. Arrived. Rev. Sheldon Jackson, Superintendent of the Presbyterian Mission of the Northwestern Territories, arrived last night by the overland coach. He is accompanied by tw'o Mission aries, Rev. Jas. It. Russel, of Louisville, Ky., and Rev. Win. S. Frackelton, of Petersburg!!, 111. The former will be stationed in Helena and the latter in Gallatin Valley, with head quarters at Bozeman, while Mr. Jackson will travel about the Territory from place to place in the interests of the Church. We hope suc cess will attend the Rev. Mr. Jackson in bis efforts to build np the Church in this Terri tory. Dona the River. Quite a number of our citizens left for Benton this morning, to take passage on the Far West for the states. Miss Jennie Hundley was one of tbe number. She goes to her home near Springfield, 111. Miss Jennie has many warm friends here who will regret her departure. Mrs. Pruitt, her sister, accompa nies her home. —You ought to see the Iowa country edi tors open their eyes at the idea of spending $75 on the proposed trip to Salt Lake ! One man offers to trade his whole office for a $75 mule. From the Dstly Herald of May 28. Tlie Crop«. This season, from all accounts, will l>c a very prosperous one to the farmers. .The most flattering reports come to us through correspondents from all sections of the Ter ritory, speaking in glowing terms of the crops and the prospects fora bountiful harv est. Tlie Independent, in referring to the prospect in Deer Lodge valley, says: "The abundunt rains of the present week has sat urated tlie ground so thoroughly that the grass crop cannot fail to be abundant. The weather for nearly a month past has lieen cool and dry, and grain has not flourished well, but now we learn that the grain is look ing finely, and should warm weather ensue, which is more than probable, crops will be as forward by the middle of June as they were at n corresponding season last year, when was raised the finest crops ever seen in this region. The number of acres seeded in this valley the present year is double that of pre vious seasons. The demand for all kinds of farm produce will be largely in excess of former years, as the number of consumers will be greatly augmented by this year's im migration. In addition to this the number of men who will be employed by tlie Railroad Company will consume next year ail the sur plus of the present and the ensuing years of its construction. Our farmers and grazers need have no fears that they will have a sur plus of their proceeds, or that they will not command good prices. New Firm. Chas. J. Curtis and Geo. H. Booker have formed a co-partnership under the firm name of Curtis & Booker, in the Auction and Com mission business. They are now repairing and fitting up the well-known stand on Main street, at the foot of Broadway, formerly the Bull's Head market, and in a day or two will be ready to commence operations. They will do a general business in the auction and com mission lihe, buy and sell stock, household furniture, etc., etc. The stand is an excellent one, and as Charlie and George are both men of energy and enterprise, they cannot fail to meet with success. In a few days we shall publish their advertisement, and will again take occasion to notice the new firm of Cur tis & Booker. Beautiful Chromos. We saw this morning at Mr. Geo. P. Reeves' jewelry establishment, a fine collection of chromos, just received from New York. "The Maiden's Prayer," "Tlie Family Scene in Pompci," and "The Launching of the Life Boat," afe as elegant as they are perfect, and natural in conception. "Farragut Lashed to the Shrouds," is the title of another, repre senting the illustrious Admiral on the flag ship "Hartford," off Mobile. We noticed also many others in this splendid collection of chromos equally beautiful and attractive, and elegant enough to adorn the parlors of a Prince or Potentate. Personal. Personal. —Dr. H. C. Sill, of Bannnck City, gave us a call tliis morning. The Dr. will remain in tlie city a week or ten days. —D. H. Weston came over from Virginia on Monday. -Judge Symes has returned home from Radersburgh. -W. W. DeWitt, of Lincoln Gulch, is in the city.

From the Daily Herald of Mav 29. Jnffe Wade's Lecture. The last lecture of the Library Course was delivered at tlie Broadway M. E. church on Monday evening by Hon. D. S. Wade. There was an audience of about 200 persons in at tendance, larger than at any previous lecture of thfc course, which may have resulted partly from tbe reduction in the price of admission. But a more select and appreciative audience we have hardly ever had the good fortune to see assembled in Helena. The subject of the lecture was "THOUGHT," and for so vast and general a subject, it was treated with more interest than it seemed possible to throw around it for a promiscuous audience. The speaker depicted in fit and forcible terms the dignity, value, power, and universality of thought. It has given birth to ail that is great and good in the whole history of mankind ; all sciences and arts are its natural fruit; re ligion, politics, music, painting and sculpture are now and ever have been tbe expression of tbe thoughts of the age that produced them. In fine, thought was the great foun tain head from which had flowed all the streams that through centuries have been con tributing to exalt, refine, and instruct man kind. It was a prominent point in tlie Judge's lecture, that thought once produced never dies or is lost ; it not only leaves an indelible record on tlie mind that begot it, but it goes forth to be added to the common stock for the service of man. Man's active life, after deducting so much as is a mere blind pursuit of subsistence, is an attempt to realize in form and substance tbe conceptions of hi6 mind. In other words, thought has in itself a power to force utterance and expression. The tower of Babel expressed tbe heaven defying thoughts of tbe antediluvian races. The pyramids of Egypt were but the solid expression in stone of the highest thoughts in art of the race that built them. The transi tion from the rudest hieroglyphics of savages, to the perfected work of Phidias and Praxit eles, represents tbe track that thought has traveled, tlie field of its labors and victories. It seemed to lie the opinion of the lecturer that modem thought did not so much surpass that of earlier ages, as we were apt to flatter ourselves into thinking. We thought the Judge gave greater credit to tbe claims of antiquity than they are en titled to enjoy. We agree with him that past ages seem to have produced individual minds of as great original force as any we have in modem times, but such men exercised little influence in their own age, for want of power to give expression and circulation to their thoughts. Each great mind was required to take up every subject anew, with little of the results of others' thoughts to assist him. So ages followed one another, with little ad vance. They were full of tbe germs of most important discoveries, but mostly failed for want of tbe power to save and transmit the results. Now one generation takes up any thought or invention of its predecessor where it was left, and carries it on to perfection. The Judge dwelt with peculiar interest upon tlie theme of municipal law, and traced its steady growth from days when disputes were tried by wager of battle. The gradual adop tion of the jury system and its subsequent changes till we see it in tlie form we now have it. In this field reason has for ages been do ing steady, hard work ; every precedent has been carefully preserved, in order to discover the principles that controlled in its application, and from this apparently dry and forbidding mass of rubbish lias been evolved a system of law ; the fairest fruit of reason ; tbe high est achievement of human thought; tlie grand est and firmest bulwark of tbe peace and pro tection of society and tlie individual. It would be impossible, within any moder ate limits, to give any fair epitome of such a lecture, and we are unable to fully satisfy our longing to preserve a better record of It with out getting at tbe lecture itself. This we do, ♦o a certain extent, as will be seen by turning to our first page. , Personal. —E. 8. Mansfield was one of the passen gers on the overland last night from Corinne. Shirley has been absent since December last, and we are right glad to see him back again to his old mountain home. — W . G.

Sheldon Jackson, Superintendent of J'resl.j .erian missions, left by coach this morning for Eastern Montana, in tbe interest of bis church. He will stop at Spriugville, Radcrsburg, Hamilton, Gallatin City, termi nating his trip in that direction at Bozeman. He will visit most sections of the Territory, between now and tbe last of June, and then take bis departure for tlie States tin Missouri —J. V.

CROUN8E, P. M. Radeksbüro, M. T., May 27. To the Editor of the Herald. As Radersburg has been for two weeks past above the average in point of lively news, I have ventured to hope that I might offer you a few jottings that would not be uninteresting. In addition to the great array of legal ability that a term of court usually brings into our midst, there have others presented themselves who are distinguished in their respective departments of life, and some of whom have done us the honor to bring along their wives and daughters; for this we es pecially thank them. Our court has now been in session for two weeks, and is liable to continue a portion of this week. The delay bas partially been oc casioned by a defective Grand Jury. The regular Grand Jury presented quite an array of indictments, but very soon after they were discharged it was discovered that one of their number was not a citizen of tlie United States, aud although particularly interrogated upon this point, he seems not to have been conscious of the attitude in which he stood to his adopted country. The result was, all the indictments were quashed and a new Grand Jury empanneled, and "Bed Rock" Joe 1 b now laboring with them with an energy characteristic of that gentleman. The docket at this term was quite large, and some of the most important cases were continued. One very important quartz case occupied the time of the court for nearly four days. The Jury failed to agree, and this case still stands for trial, but will not be taken up again till next term. We are pleased to welcome back into our midst our old friend Judge Clancy, who, after a brief visit to Colorado, has deigned to come and settle among us again. Instead of growing older, as in accordance with na ture, the Judge has put on a more youthful aspect, and seeniB to crow more lively and energetic. His friends in and around Ra dersburg, of whom he has many, take great interest in his welfare, and hope that he may meet with success in the future beyond any thing he has yet dared to look for. The mining company which bears bis name is moving along rapidly. Their mill will be completed and in running order within five or six days. They have about five hundred tons of rock on the dump ready for crushing which will average $40 per ton. About one hundred tons arc ready to be stoped in the Left Hand lode, while there are five other large and valuable leads to supply their de mands. I learn that Judge" Clancy has sold 1,100 feet on the east end of what is known as the Iluse lode to John Bnyliss for $1,500. Placer mining is quite lively. Quinn's ditches arc full of walcr, aud yet the miners are calling for more As I am always inclined to speak of the ladies a Leu an opportunity offers itself, I will give you a brief sketch of a social "hop" we had last week. It was rather impromptu. In addition to the married ladies of our town, who are always anxious to do anything to en tertain their friends, I must add the name of the amiable lady, of bis honor, Judge Mur phy, who has done much to enliven our social circle tlie past week. But what I wish to get at'particularly, is to tell you that we hail two young ladies present. "Well ! " I hear you say, "I don't think there is anything marvelous abont that." Well, we do. You remember a short time ago the "Judge," in writing from this point, told you that the only young lady in town was married, and he hail witnessed the solemn ceremony. That was a solemn fact. But there is a Mr. Merriman over at Jefferson City who had a suit pending at this term of court, and who was so kind as to bring Miss Merriman over with him. This caused a great many more suits to be instituted, most of which I think have been dismissed—a few are yet pending. While I do not positively know that any of our citizens are direcUy involved yet in said suit, I hope that those who are compelled attic WEEKLY WHOLESALE MARKET REVIEW.

The farmers of the Upper Valley are set tling down to grain growing in earnest.

From the Independent of the 25th inst: We learn that nearly all the mines at Pio neer, Diy gulch, and Pilgrim Bar are now being successfully worked. Mr. Humphreys, of Butte, reports every man in that camp as working, and that there is a large quantity of water running to waste for want of men to use it We learn that Mrs. John Davis, of Deer Lodge, lias fallen heir to a fortune of £40, 000 by the deatli of an aunt in Wales.

Judge Bill, of Blackfoot, informs us the water turned through the Nevada Ditch a week ago, and mining has generally been commenced in all the northern camps. From the Mmtanian , 20th inst: Forty or fifty tMms, loaded with families of immigrants, are en route from Corinne to this Territory. Mr. How, who is giving his personal atten tion to eveiy movement of his mine, and whose indomitable pluck and perseverance in bringing it out is known to all, deserves all the success that is in store for him—we trust, an abundance.
