Our Eastern Montana Letter.
Bozeman, April 17, 1873. To the Editor o£ the Herald: After a long silence I come to'tlie front with my pen, and desire to hold communion with your readers. Bozeman of late has been lying under a cloud. No sooner had died away the excite ment consequent upon the hanging of two defenceless prisoners, than there falls on the community like a pall the death by shooting of one of our most esteemed citizens by an other well known and respected citizen. The funeral of Col. Ford was a large one, and as it passed along the streets of Boze man to Cemetery Ilill, it seemed as if it was passing through a deserted town. Business of all kinds was suspended. Along the route of the funeral procession every door was closed and every curtain lowered. The services at the grave were very impressive. The sun was just going down behind the mountains when was laid in his last earthly resting place all that remained of Col. Nim rod Ford, the good husband, kind father, and esteemed citizen. Bozeman deplores the sad affi^ir which robbed her of one of her foremost sons, and condoles with the grief stricken widow and fatherless children of him who has left us. We also deeply feel for the relatives of the accused in this their hour of tribulation and suffering. Passing from this gloomy subject I will state that improvements are continually go ing on in Bozeman with a vim and energy characteristic of our business men and build ers. Lots are being fenced in almost without number, and soon the brick yards and saw mills will have all they can attend to towards furnishing our builders enough of material for their coming season's work. Our mer chants arc cleaning out their old stock as rapidly as possible in order to make room for their forthcoming spring supplies. The miners arc jubilant, and in fact the talk in this hitherto purely agricultural town is quartz and placer, Clark's Fork, Cherry Creek and Bridger. The new mines at Bridger, but three miles from Bozeman arc doing well. Times on the Yellowstone are brisk. Ad miral Nelson Story is busily engaged in tho* building of a lleet of mackinaws. He pro poses establishing a trading post at or below the mouth of the Big Horn. The denizens of Emigrant gulch have been ordered to abandon their homes and re move to this side of the river. The order emanates from the Indian Department. I do not think the miners * have heeded the re quest, and am of the opinion that they are waiting for the Crows to remove them. The Crow mission, under the spiritual and temporal charge of Father Pease, still con tinues to be the loafing place of ye gentle savage. The employees at that place, unlike other agencies I have visited, are at work during working horns, the agent believing that one good workingman is better than twenty loafers. Rex. S QUESTION AND ANSWER. Jefferson City, April 21, 1873. To the Editor of the Herald. Do you understand by the argument put forth by the "Governor of the Northern Pa cific," in his message to the Legislature, that he will veto any measure passed by the As sembly submitting to the people whether or no they will assist by subsidy aid the construc tion of a North and South road? Please give me your opinion. S. II. We are not handy at answering conun drums av herein the purposes or intentions of our Executive figure. If the Governor is honest in his professions to "subordinate his own vieAvs to the Avili of the people, ' he will sign any just measure passed by the Legisla ture submitting the railroad question to the people. If, on the contrary, the Governor's professions in this particular are a sham, the interposition of his veto prerogative to a fair and just North and South railroad bill will establish that fact. We had rather commend than condemn the Governor—if he will give us a chance. Let us Avait and sec whether it is praise or censure Ave have to bestow. - m ■* h > - Colonel Alvan C. Gillem, of the First United States Cavalry, Avho succeeds Genera Canby in command of the force operating against the Modocs, is a native of Tennessee. He graduated from West Point in 1851, standing eleven in a class of forty-two. Among his class-mates ay ere Gen. Kelton, now Adjutant-General of the Division of the Pacific, and Colonel Rodger Jones, Inspector General. He was originally commissioned in the First United States Artillery, and Avas made captain in the early part of the rebel lion. He served in East Tennessee in 18C4, with the rank of Brevet Major-General of Volunteers. When the army was re-organizd in 1806, he Avas one of the two colonels se lected specially by President Johnson, une was assigned to the command of the Elevenih Infantry. When the army was reduced ie was assigned to the First Cavalry. December 15th, I860. _ President «rant'» Sentiment» in Bp« fard to the Hi ©do© ll Chicago, April 18.—A Washington special says: During the past few days telegra and letters have poured into the White Ho begging the President not to allow the da of the ungodly press, or the passionate ing of those around him, to swerve him his philanthropic peace policy toward Indians. In conversation with all the F dent said, calmly, that the Modocs mast shall be exterminated, not as a passionate revenge for their treacherous murder*" ' *""■ as an act of justice, as well as the peaceful settlers in that part *^Another spcdal says the citizens of ftich mond, Virginia, where General Canby was at one time military Governor, have called a meeting for to-night, to express their appreci ation of his character and sorrow for his murder. _ ___ _ south" AMERICA. Panama, April 5. —Reports from San Sal vador state that the authorities still persist in rebuilding on the same site, although this is the eighth time within 150 years that the city has been destroyed. Most of the people, nevertheless, have removed to Santa Tecla. The only building that stood the shocks with little injury was one of timber. The impulse at present is to import timber from Cal : for ma for tlic construction of such earthquake proof houses, and money has been tendered and sent from all parts of the Republic. Everything lias risen to exorbitant prices. The prisoners in the jail were removed to other places. The Sisters of Charity have been assiduous in their attendance upon the sick and wounded. Capt. Kennedy, of the British ship Raindeer, gave all the assistance he could, and offered her tor use to Biddle, the U. S. Minister. The latter, as well as the government, returned letters of thanks to Capt. Kennedy. Great fears are entertained that the stoppages of the sewers, the expo sure and fright, the dead bodies uncovered from beneath the ruins, and other conditions, may bring on an epidemic. The fine bridge lately build across the river on the road to Sayapongo, was thrown down. The other bridge is* rendered impassable by immense blocks of stone thrown down from the heights. The officers of tire Raindeer re port that the U. $. Consulate was a mass of ruins inside, though the Avails are still stand ing. Biddle, the U. S. Minister, with his five little ones, had a narrow escape. The tw© days that the three officers remained at San Salvador they felt light shocks. In some places the ground cracked £ foot Avide and very deep. At every shock all the cocks in the place began to crow, and the pigeons whirled about wildly in the air. The English visitors consider it a temptation of Provi dence to rebuild the city again on the same spot. The crust below it is evidently a mere shell, as the ear placed close to the ground hears a noise like running water, and the falling of a heavy stone produces a hollow sound. GERMANY. Berlin, April 19.—Prince Albercclit, nephew of the Emperor, Avas married to-day to Princess Mary of Saxony. The ccremo monies were of a grand character. This evening the royal couple were escorted from White Hall to "the nuptial chamber by a torch light procession. O « ►► 4M ITALY.
