From the Daily Herald of May 8. The Concert. The Grand street church was filled even to the last standing space Wednesday evening, the audience numbering, we should judge, not less than 400 souls. The entertainment gave complete satisfaction to everybody, and was, in fact, far beyond the expectations in point of musical talent, both vocal and instru mental, displayed. The Silver Cornet Band took prominent parts, and made us all feel proud of its possession by our city. The pro gramme was carried out entire, and all did their parts splendidly, eliciting frequent ap plause. Little Emma Zeigler was called out the third time to repeat "Bashful Johnny," which she sang to her own accompaniment upon the piano in a manner which caused many a corset string to snap and wiastcoat button to go spinning around. Each partici pant in the exercises deserves special men tion, but we rest with stating that as a whole it comprised the best musical treat ever given in Helena. The band will give another con cert for a laudable purpose at some date not far distant, due notice of which will be given. Acknowledgments. The members of the Silver Comet Band thus publicly tender thanks to the ladies and gentle men who so kindly volunteered their assist ance at the concert last evening, and to Mrs. Child for the piano used on the occasion ; also to the trustees of the Broadway Church for courtesies extended, and those of the Grand Street Church for the use of their church for the entertainment. They would also tender a public acknowledgment to the citizens for the generous interest taken in behalf of the band. The report of the Treasurer is hourly expected, and it is confidently believed that the proceeds of the entertainment will entirely liquidate the balance due on the instruments. Hidden Treasure. Wc have in our possession a piece of ore from the Hidden Treasure lode, Radersburg district, which is brilliant with free gold. Messrs. Richard Bros, are the lucky owners. A tunnel has recently been completed which strikes the lead at a depth of 150 feet, show ing a crevice of from IS inches to 2 feet in width. The Richard Bros, have a six-stamp mill convenient to their lead, which is run by water power at a nominal expense, and the result of their first clean-up will soon be laid before our readers. new and Rick Quartz Disco very. J. H. B. Foster ahd others have just dis covered a most promising gold lead on French Bar, supposed to have been the feeder to the rich placers lying undqr it. Free gold, and plenty of it, is contained in specimens shown us. In fact, a few tons of such rock would yield a very desirable fortune. The boys have sunk only ten feet on the ledge, but will push its development with vigor. " Climbed the Veto." Last evening, too late for our paper, we received the follow ing characteristic dispatch from the irrepressible Councilman Bullock : Helena Herald: —The railroad bill has climbed the veto; the people of Montana have won a grand victory ; and now glory to God in the highest, and " whoop 'em up" on' the North and South plenty.

Legal Tender Mine. We yesterday interviewed Jack McCourt, who has been at work in the famous Legal Tender mine, at Clancey, for the past five months, (and than whom no better judge of mines can be found in the mountains,) and from him we received a full corroboration of the truthfulness of llie seemingly fabulous stories told heretofore of the richness and extent of this lead. The lead is developed to the depth of 190 feet by a main shaft, from the bottom of which levels have been run 150 feet each way, showing a fair crevice of ore richer in silver beyond any taken out on the upper levels, but which is temporarily aban doned on account of water. At present, Mr. Lewis has a large force of men taking ore from the 80-foot level—ore that contains from $800 to $1,000 per ton in silver, and plenty of like qualily in sight. The lack of steam hoisting works is the only drawback to the development of the mine to a greater depth, but this, Jack says, will be remedied by Superintendent Lewis, who possesses the energy to overcome all difficulties. Mr. Lewis is a practical assayer, and handles men better than most old miners. That we have numer ous other rich mines of silver in Montana, awaiting the coming of railroads and capital ists to develop, we have not the slightest doubt—and speed the*day, say* we.

The case of Territory vs. House, for as sault with intent to do great bodily injury to the corpus of one Shaffer in Oct., 1871, came up in the District Court yesterday, and after a hearing of two hours defendant was dis charged and plaintiff ordered to pay costs of prosecution. To one who know T s the predi lections of his Honor, the closing scene of the trial bore with it a good point. The de fense were endeavoring to establish the men tal aberration* of the plaintiff by asserting that he, at times, had expressed great appre hension of being hanged by the Vigilantes, without apparent good reason. As the wit ness was about retiring, his Honor halted him with "How far did you say the plaintiff lived from Bozeman?" " 'Bout forty miles."

On the passage of the Railroad Bill, he rose to the question, and in a clear, forcible manner, delivered one of the brightest and most logical speeches we have heaïd during the session. He was frequently applauded during his remarks and, on closing, the House and lobby burst forth into enthusiastic cheers. Capt.

C.

Mr. Rommel made a highly favorable impression on the people at the Assembly here last fall, and his second appearance in the pnlpit of our church was the occasion of a large con gregation, and such has been the interest manifested by those attending that his stay, which was limited to Snnday, was prolonged several days. All agree in pronouncing Mr. Rommel an eloquent and effective preacher and we believe his efforts Mere will result in mach good. A at N. KILN DRIED LUMBER!
