KlVAFFF.lt, THE MCRDERER. l'articulurs of 111» Escape. Deputy Sheriff Toby, who was sent to Bis marck after Shaffer, one of the murderers of Franz Wail, arrived home Saturday night, after an absence of thirty days. From Mr. Toby we learn the particulars concerning the escape of the chief conspirator in the horri ble tragedy of April last. It appears from the statement of Mr. T. that Pierce, who was armed with a warrant for the arrest of the refugee, which officer Quirk gave him, upon his arrival at Bismarck, entered complaint before Justice Davis. A warrant was im mediately issued by that functionary, and during the day Sheriff McKenzie arrested Shaffer, shackled and jailed him. This was about two weeks prior to the time Mr. Toby reached his destination. In the meantime Sheriff McKenzie had occasion to go to Iowa in charge of some prisoners, and during his absence the Mayor o/ tbe town induced the jailor to turn Shaffer over to Pierce, that he might be brought back to Montana for trial. j»ier< e immediately started overland in charge of his prisoner to overtake a steamer which tbe night previous had started for Carroll. While vn route to the boat, Pierce was him self arrested by the same jailor who but a few hours before had released Hhaffer, on the charge of kidnapping, and was taken back to Bismarck to stand his trial, which, of course, resulted in his acquittal. Shaffer was turned loose immediately after the arrest of Pierce, and was seen in Bismarck during the day, but a telegram haviug been received from Sheriff Bullock that very same day request ing the authorities to hold the prisoner at all hazards, probably induced Shaffer to make himself scarce in those parts. He left that evening and has not been seen since. It is believed that he has gene to the Red river country. Personal. H. James, of Blackfoot, was iti the city, yesterday. Mon.

In another place in these columns is chron icled the marriage of our valued friend, Mr. Peter V. Jackson to Miss Rietta Fletcher, which happy event transpired at the residence of the bride's brother, near Sterling, on the 30th ult. Mr. Jackson came to Montana from Rochester, N. Y., in 1867. He was one of our traveling companions in the long journey measured in that year by the length of the Missouri river. His acquaintance and friendsh.p have been to us a source of un- varying satisfaction and pleasure since. A man of integrity and intelligence, supported by many attributes of character that attract and attach good men to one another, he has secured the confidence and esteem of a host of our best people. And not only that—he has now won the love of a good and true woman, who, "nearer and dearer than all other," to-day graces his home, the bride of his choice. To the happy couple is extended our best wishes for a long life of happiness, supplemented by uninterrupted health and prosperity. -♦ i a oi I — ------ Humored Indian Troubles in Eastern Montana. The Bozeman Times , under date of the 5th inst., issues an extra, from which we con dense the following; "A messenger, just in from below, states that last night a body of from 40 to 80 (sup posed) Sioux appeared at Benson's, secured two horses—one of which escaped—fired thirty shots inte» the settlement, and disap peared. This morning they were seen upon both sides of the river. "Dr. Hunter, a thoroughly reliable man, and no stampeder, as all who know' of his continued residence at the Sulphur Springs must admit, says that the Crows insist that a body of Sioux have left the main camp at the Big Horn, and are approaching the vicin ity of the New' Mission upon a raid. Look out for them! We have given the warning —those interested assume the risk, if these repeated reports be true. "D. H. Carpenter writes, Monday, 10:30 a. m. : Two more horses taken. Indians have been seen every day since you left, W e have but six men here, and are short of arms. "Mr. Godwin, of the Agency, just in, thinks they cannot be Sioux, but are North ern Indians." .Stemuboating-A Contrast. Carroll, July 1, 1875 To the Editor of th« Herald. A contrast betw'ecn the Coulsou and Ivountz line is exemplified almost weekly here. The Kountz boats, Fontenelle and Katie B. Kounlz, have been lubbering between here and Benton the past twenty days. The Jose phine, of the Coulson line, made the trip to Benton and return in four days; the Far West in seven days. The Key West has just arrived here, seven days and six hours from Bismarck—the fastest time on record. The Josephine's best time between the same points is nearly as good—seven days and twelve hours. This is data of interest to Montana shippers. Realizing its importance, is it not well for merchants and others to stand by Montana routes ? The certainty and celerity of the Cuulsen line are established facts, and »he speed and regularity of freight carriage between the N. P. terminus and Carroll set ties, to a great extent, the present transporta tion problem for the Territory. OCCASIONAL. From Carroll—That Fast Trip, Etc. Carroll, July 1st, 1875. To th^ Editor of the Herald. The steamer Key West, of the Coulson line, has just arrived, seven days, six hours and forty-five minutes from Bismarck, with 200 recruits for the 7th regiment of infantry and about 100 tons of freight. The Benton was passed below' Peck lighting up. Captain McGarry w'auted the Key West to take a part of the Benton's cargo, but no arrangement could be satisfactorily made. Toby goes up on the coach and can give you all the news. Yours, XXX. ^Personal. —Mr. Haas, merchant of Diamond City, is in the market replenishing his stock of goods. L. Marks, of the same place is also in the city. —Wm. Frazec, of McCIellen gulch, gave us a call this morning, and left some green- backs for the Weekly Herald, of which he has been a subscriber for many years. ----•4-440»'»* - Deer Lodgu county Democratic Nomina tion».

SCRATCH €5 RAVEL. Placer and quartz Mining— »orbiston— Development of Silver Leads—Work of S. J. Jones, Superintendent of the N. M. A E. Co*—Courtwri|plit , s Near Gold Mill. To the Editor of the Herald : The Scratch Gravel placer and quartz min ing camp is distance from Helena four miles, situated in that spur of mountains which di vide Three Mile from Seven Mile creek. Gold was first discovered here in the summer of ' 68 , and considerable excitement was caused at that time in consequence of a deposit of coarse gold being found, one nugget of which weighed some $400. Scarcity of water, how ever, has always been a setback to its pros perity, and ditches have been brought upon it for mining purposes, yet very little has been heard about it of late years, until quite recently, when several promising lodes, both of gold and silver, have been discovered and present claims to attention • Chancing to meet upon the street this morn ing our well-known citizen, Mr. Milo Court wright, seated behind a sprightly team and in transit to his Gertie Lode, of which he is a full half-owner, an invitation is extended to accompany him, and in a trice we are spin ning down Clore street past the Smelting Works, and on through the grassy flats o: Prickly Pear valley. Soon our guide points with whip to a white object perched upon an eminence, and exclaims : "Sec how Forbis ton looms up." "Forbiston ! Why, who ever heard of Forbiston ?" "Well, never mind get there." On we go past fields tints of color vie with that of the emerald, and soon halt before a long, rough board dwelling, beside which stands an exceedingly neat office building. On a plate in front wc read that this is the Forbis works of the N. M. & E. Co., S. J. Jones, Superintendent, Uniouville. So this, then, is Forbiston. Proceeding a short distance up the hill we come upon the Lexington Lode, a large and ■well defined vein of silver-bearing quartz, carrying largely of grecu carbonates of cop per. It has a crevice of from three to five feet in thickness, which is traced by shafts for several hundred feet, and specimens are attained in it showing native silver quite visi bly. The company has a force of men still developing, and the showing is good. Distant from this half a mile, in a north westerly direction, is the Gertie Lodge, gold bearing, and for a half-interest id which Mr. Courtwriglit paid, a short time ago, $1,200. The crevice in this lead is not large, but the ore is concentrated and free milling, and, be ing easily mined and traced for several hun dred feet along the eurface, it promises greater dividends than a larger and more unaccessi ble mine. The ore is to be reduced by a five stamp water mill, to be erected by Mr Court wrigbt, ground for which was broken two weeks ago, immediately adjoining and east of the Smelting Works, on the west side of Last Chance gulch. The motor is to be an eighteen-foot overshot wheel, driven by wa ter from the Yaw Yaw ditch, and is to be in operation within thirty days. The success which this undertaking promises is fairly merited by the enterprising projector. H.
