From the Daily Herald of April t. Subscribe for Centennial Stock. The Centennial Board of Finance have ap apointed Major Robert C. Walker, of Helena, agent for Montana, with authority to receive subscriptions from any part of the Territory for shares of the capital stock of the Centen nial Board of Finance. Any person can become a stockholder to the extent of one share by sending to Major W alker the sum of £10, either in money by registered letter, or by post office order, or draft on the East, payable to Frederick W. Fraley, Treasurer, Philadelphia. The advantages to be derived from a mem bership in this Honorable Board are many, and there is scarce a person in any community bo; can afford a tcn-dollar greenback for the laudable purpose of contributing to the first Centennial of our National Independence. A beautiful memorial-emblematic-certificate will be awarded to each stockholder as a souviner of this memorable occasion. And in addi tion to the six per cent, interest which will be allowed to each subscriber until the first of January next, there will no doubt be other accumulations of the Centennial which will go into the possession of the stockholders, either as curiosities for a cabinet, or as me mentoes of honorable membership. From a private letter from the Financial Agent of the Board, we learn that "the final certificate of stock is one of the finest specimens of art ever produced in this country, and of itself worth ten dollars as a picture, and worthy a place among the treasures of every household in our country." On subscriptions of five shares and over, forty per cent, only to be paid now, the balance in nine months. Accompanying each remittance, the name of each subscriber plainly written, with post office address, are required. Address Major Robt. C. Walker, Helena, M. T. Montana at the Centennial. It is a remarkable fact, as showing the wide-spread interest excited by the Centennial even in the remotest nooks and corners of this broad land, that three papers from Mon tana settlements received by the ageBt con tained articles about the Centennial and even cuts of the buildings. One of these papers is published at Helena, another at Deer Lodge, and the third at Bozeman, Montana—the last mentioned place being 600 miles from any railway. Does this not afford ample proof that the American people are now l'ully alive to the national solemnity ot the great event? Preparations are being made in that Territory to send specimens of all the products of its mines to the Philadelphia WWW'» bw. Ti.c ores are to be sent in specimens weighing from five to twenty-five pounds. Not only gold, silver, lead and copper ores, but all the mineral products of Montana are to be fully represented. We clip the foregoing from the New York Herald of March 19th. The simplicity that styles Helena, Deer Lodge, and Bozeman as "settlements" is refreshing ! We would have our pretentious namesake of Gotham under stand that these are rattling, wideawake, en terprising, prosperous cities and towns in business, wealth, enlightenment, and spunk ahead of any cities or towns of their popula tion in the broad realm of Uncle Sam. Set tlements, indeed! A grand inland metrop olis, each of them—prospectively. And we propose, as do other "camps and settle ments" of Montana, to send down to the Cen tennial more and bigger delegations, of whole some, healthy men, of better morals, sounder sense, loftier patriotism, and more real cash for spending money than any "nook or corner" in the universal land. There isn't any "foolishness" among the people of Mon tana in this matter. They will be on hand in good earnest and in big numbers to swell the countless throng to rally in 1876 to celebrate the Nation's Centenary at Philadelphia. A Man Who Can Tell Every Time Where to Ntrike Water or a Bonanza. The Denver Neves says that Captain John S. Godfrey, of New Hampshire, is said to lie intending to visit Colorado on a profession»! tour for the purpose of locating living streams and springs of water, and also mineral bodies of every description. Captain Godfrey claims no supernatural power in the accomplishment of his work, but declares it to be simply a sensitive organism or powerful current of electricity in himself, so powerful as to at tract him irresistibly to living streams and mineral deposits beneath the surface. Dur ing the late war he located all the wells for the use df the army under Geftcral How ard's command, and at Hampton Falls, N. H., where land was rendered valueless for want of water, he located streams which now sup ply all needed demands. Captain Godfrey should confine his peram bulations to the mineral belt of Uncle Barn's domain, and should visit Montana by ail means. A man of bis sensitive organism would be sure of steady employment here at remunerative wages. the all gon, early nect ing and to iff at • in , Cheap Rates from tha Ea*t to tbe Black Hills. Our neighbors at Cheyenne are very jubi lant over the prospect of an early extinguish ment of the Sioux title to the Black Hills country, as they anticipate a vastly increased business in furnishing outfits for miners w ho are preparing to start into the new' Eldorado as soon as they can do so without conflict with the government. Tbe Union Pacific Railroad company is offering to ticket gold geekers from Chicago to the Black Hills at $40 a head. The distance is something fiver twelve hundred miles—one thousand by rail and about two hundred overland. This is as liberal as most impecumons adventurer could ask for, and will be likely to seeme to Chey'oiue a lion's sliaie of the trade. as in we Portland, Dalle* and Salt Lake Railroad We give below some further particulars of the contract with English capitalists to con struct the P. D. & S. L. Railroad, which our dispatch of Tuesday announces as signed by all parties. The Silver City (Idaho) Ava lanche says : "The citizens of Portland, Ore gon, are quite jubilant at the prospects of an early commencement of the long talked of railroad enterprise that is eventually to con nect them with civilization and the outside world generally. A few days ago Senator Kelly telegraphed from Washington to the Mayor of Portland to the effect that negotia tions with English capitalists for construct ing the entire line to Salt lake had been at tended with the most favorable results. Con tracts had already been partially signed and deposited with the Senator and duplicates thereof had been sent to England for further signatures. It is stated that the terms are $38,000 per mile in first mortgage bonds, the road to be constructed after standaid gauge, and to be completed in five years, the work to be begun at Portlaud a few weeks hence, W:j congratulate the Oregonians and all inter ested upon the prospects of the consumma tion of this great enterprise. They will not feel so bad over the defeat of the measure that was recently before Congress which had been stigmatized as a subsidy. Idaho, too, will watch the progress of this work with great interest, as the road will traverse a por tion of this Territory and give us in time a more direct and speedy communication than we now enjoy with points on the Central Pa cific railroad.

From the Daily Herald of Apfil 2. 1 A Charivari Party Meet with a Chilling and Damp Reception. . Mr. Wm. Irvin and Mrs. Walton, of Clan- w cy, were last evening, at the Minnesota House a t in this city, joined in matiimonial bonds, and that the "boys," numbering a couple of score or so, concluded that, as it was the 1st of April, and withal customary to do so in many coun- bas tries upon all such occasions, the uewly- t be wedded couple should have a rousing sere- the nade. The residents of all Eastern Helena () f can swear that the serenade was both a "rousing" and lengthy one. The music be- the gan at 9:25 in the evening and continued, with but few and brief intervals, until 1:35 | a this a. m. The musicians were armed with everything in the city from which a noise could be extracted except the fire alarm bell, from a horse-fiddle down to an empty oyster the can, and the diversity of noises conformed to the number and variety of instruments. We are glad to chronicle that everybody engaged 8 in this charivari were fooled—very much fool ed, for it served them right. The couple for whose special benefit the night was made to no resound with such hideous and prolonged noises showed their good sense and contempt for the boys by recognizing their presence in no manner w hatever. The charavari party was composed of persons not prone to weak eu at trifles, as their long-continued efforts w abundantly proved, and it is quite likely this morning's sun would have found them still e hammering away had not a kind providence | sent along a drenching shower, which be numbed them past further endurance and sent them chattering and shivering to their several homes at the hour mentioned.

Yes, it's pretty good about the pilots of the "Masher" doing hard steering for two weeks before they found the rudder was jammed immovably. That's easily explained: The boat had been in the trade so long that be knew all turns in the trail. It makes me recall the case of the "Blue Goose,' that dropped her wheel opposite Madison, while no one knew of the loss until they tried to "round her to" at the Louisville wharf. A more remarkable event, however, was that of the "Tinnis McGuinuis." She sunk in eighty feet of water at "Big Bear," the upper works floating off, the hull parting from the cabin w itn so little noise and jar that the pilots changed "watches" twice, exerting their full st skill, and ringing bells for careful move me nts during eleven and a half hours, before they heard of the disaster. "She was too good a boat to lose. "How she would "mark out" a narrow channel ; "just as precise as threading a needle—and handle! Oh, my!"— often has she turned round so quick that bow an d stern came in violent contact.
