From the Daily Herald of March 27. Serenade. Col. L. B. Church, recently returned from the States, was yesterday evening the red pient of a serenade from the Helena Silver Cornet Band. After several welcoming airs executed in splendid style, the members of the band were invited into Mr. Church' rooms, at the International Hotel, where they were right royally treated, the Colonel interspersing the "between times" with some of his excellent vocal music. The occasion was conceded by all participants to have been a most happy occasion. Personal 9 —Hon. D. S. Wade and Postmaster S.

In an article on artesian wells, in a recent number of the Chicago Tribune , it is stated that wells are taken by contract in and about Chicago for $5 per linear foot, the contractor assuming all risks. The engine and ma chiner)' needed by the contractor costs in that country from $2,500 to $4,000. Without doubt, the advent of railroad communication will soon be followed by the introduction into Montana of the necessary machinery and the inauguration of a system of artesian wells that will reclaim our waste foot-hills— equal in area to our entire valley lands, and conceded to be by far the best for agriculture —by bringing from the bowels of the earth the necessary waters for their irrigation and successful culture. In our own beautiful valley of the Prickly Pear the number of farms can be tripled by this means, and this applies to nearly every settlement in the Territory. Pergonal. —Fred.

For this practical testimony of their kind regards I return them my heartfelt thanks, and hope that fortune's smiles may ever attend them in their journeyings through this life, and that they may never meet with ruder shocks or rougher jarrings in its conflicts than the for tunate recipient of this acceptable present will experience in the enjoyment of its com forts and blessings. D. SEARLES. Game Fowls. We have it from good authority that a couple of stock-growers of this city, recently admitted to membership in the Poultry Asso ciation, have ordered from the States two va rieties of game cocks, with a view of testing the fighting qualities of their favorite birds, and deciding the vexed question of the best breed of this species of fowl to propagate for game purposes. A wager to a considerable amount is pending,. and when the birds ar rive, it is intended to give a public exhibition at the Opera Hours, theproceesof the roos ter performance to be devoted to charitable purposee. The game cocks to participate in this contest, w# learn, are on their way up from the railroad, and will arrive here in the course of a few days. Reward. The above reward will be paid by the Hel ena fire Department for the arrest of any person or persons who may commit any act of incendiarism in the town öf Helena after this date. By order of the Board of Fire Wardens. _ „ A. R. WEIGHT, Sccrotenr. Helena, March 29th, 1878. no ent the by to not I U. in Another Good Templar Lodfe. Gbizzly Gulch, March 27, 1873. To the Editor of the Herald. A considerable number of the inhabitants of this enlightened district, thinking that the establishment of a Good Templars Lodge would prove conducive both to the health and happiness of the community, called a meeting a short time ago, and the result ex ceeded their most sanguine expectations. Over forty subscribed their names to the list, and application was made to the Secre- J tary of the Grand Lodge of the Territory for a charter. This has been granted, and a meeting for organizing will be held in the school-room, on the evening of Saturday next. Our energetic and worthy citizen, Mr. Milo Courtwright, has entered into the matter heart and soul, and he is now endeavoring to secure the services of several gentlemen from Helena, to address the meeting on that occasion. I hope that some one who has the cause of Temperance at heart, will appear and do battle for the right, and be the means of en. rolling more under a banner, whose grand object is to wage war against tLat deadliest of all human foes, the rum fiend. Yours, TEMPERANCE. • Personal. —Nelson Story, Esq., of Bozeman, is in the city attending to business matters. —Maj. Eastman, one of Benton's stand bys, arrived Thursday from the States, where he has been passing the winter months. The 3Iajor appears as pleasant and youthful as ever, and his martial bearing is presented to striking advantage, uniformed in the latest cloth and cut of the Eastern metropolis. —W. W. Johnson departs on Monday, per private conveyance, for Radersburg, and will cross the 3Iissouri and reach Diamond City in the latter part of next week. Mr. John son, who is conceded one of our most relia ble surveyors, goes out on this trip to make two or more surveys for patents for different parties, and we advise those on his route de. siring anything done in his line to hail him by the way. Fire Alarm. The alarm of fire last night was caused by the burning of some boxes in Chinatown. These alarms have become so frequent lately that our citizens are resolved to ferret out the incendiaries and put a stop to it. We have a good and efficient body of firemen now, but if these false alarms are continued, the boys will become disgusted and will be slow to turn out when most required. The city has had quite enough of this nonsense. ■ — —— Attorney General Williams has decided that the legal terminus of the Union Pacific is on the east bank of the 3Iissouri, thus end ing the controversy between Omaha and Council Bluffs. The effect will be to put an end to the "toll " robbery upon freight and passengers passing over the Omaha bridge. The most original spelling we have ever seen is the following : It beats phonetics— 80 you be—a tub. 80 oh! pea—a top. Be 80 —bat. See 80—cat. Pea 80—?pat. Are 80 rat. See oh! double you—cow. See you be—cub. See a bee—cab. Be you double tea—butt. See a double ell—call. -Gold in New Items. York, yesterday, (28th,) 16f.

Governor Potts has issued his proclama tion calling the Legislature in extraordinary session on 3Ionday, the 14th day of April, 1873, at 12 o'clock m., assigning as a reason therefor, the necessity fer a repeal of certain laws in conflict with some of the late Acts of the Legislature, the amendment of others, the reduction of the fees of County and District officers, and suitable legislation to enable the Territory to take charge of the Peuitentiary, which by Act of Congress has been turned over to Territorial authority. While these reasons have had much weight, in inducing the Governor to issue his proclamation, the chief object among many, in procuring an extra session has been to secure legislation favorable to Railroad enterprises, and there will be an effort made to secure county sub sidies to a North apd South road. We have the pledges of the leading spirits in the North and South Railroad enterprise that no terri torial subsidy will be asked for, or we might fear the possibility of a proposition for a territorial subsidy being introduced. We have no wish to interpose an obstacle to those counties wishing to vote bonds in favor of any enterprise they may believe will be to their advantage, but further than this we hope nothing may be asked. The Governor limits the session to fifteen days, which gives ample time for the transaction of the neces sary business, and we hope it may be accom plished in ten, as our regular session will be convened within a few months.— Independ ent 22nd inst. The Salt Lake Journal takes no stock in the suggestion that Gen. Connor is to be ap pointed Governor of Utah. Neither do we. Nor that Mr. Clagett will be either. Gov. Woods, it will probably be found, suits Gep. Grant very well. We de not see that he could be-superseded to any particular advan tage. The Herald thinks tbatthe nomination by the President of a new Judge, means the supersedure of Hawley. We should be sorry to see it. Hawley is of the true metal, and with his four years of experience, could hardly be replaced to anybody's advantage, not even to that of his successor .— Corinne Reporter , 10th inst. up. of six and Mr. til last a CLUB MASQUERADE. A Jolly Time Last Night. Lint of Character Personation». Some weeks since the members of the Hel ena Dancing Club voted to close their series of dances of the season by a masquerade ball, and last night the grand event took place. We made it a point to be present, and to-day we record it as the çhief of many so J c ial parties had in Helena during the past a four months. The several committees ap pointed laid hold of the duties assigned them with a determination to make of it a certain success, and to them the praises of the whole assemblage welled up for the good time had. Soon after dark carriages were upon the streets conducting the maskers to the hall, and at 9 o'clock Hewins' String Band (dis coursing excellent music upon all occasions) opened the dance with the grand march, to which sixty-odd couples responded. No un welcome intrusion was sought to be imposed, nor did anything occur to dampen the hilarity of the occasion from beginning to end. About three-fourths of all present were masked, and the characters assumed and costumes worn were as varied as they were numerous. Our list is by no means complete, but is such as we were enabled to take in the commotion of the ball and supper rooms. Of those we fail to note, we cau say the fault lies in part with them as well as us. Following are those obtained : J. A. Zeigler—Hiawatha ; 3Irs. Zeigler 3iinnehaha, "Laughing Water."
