Fi .mi tlie Daily Herald of April 24. THE FOURTH OF JULY. I»ri*j»:ir»tloi»» to Celebrate tlie One Fun dretli Anniversary ol'our S'aiienal Independence. A meeting of a large portion of our Irish fellow-citizens took place yesterday, for the purpose of taking into consideration the prac ticability of attending in a body the coming Fourth of July celebration, which promises to be a grand affair. The meeting was organ ized by the selection of Moses Furlong as Chairman, James McEvily, Secretary, and Hugh Daly, Treasurer. It was unanimously resolved to participate in the coming Fourth of July Celebration, inviting every Irish citi zen throughout Montana, who can make it convenient, to loin in the procession. The meeting also resolved to purchase a magnifi cent Irish flag, to be borne in the procession on that day. Considerable enthusiasm pre vailed, and unanimity of feeling was a notice able feature. The meeting adjourned to again convene on Sunday, April 30th, at 2:30 p. m. at the old Catholic church building. The following named gentlemen were appointed a committee to solicit subscriptions for the pur chase of a flag : F. II. Purcell, A. O'Connell, 11. Daly, Felix Garrigan and P. Quinn. Our Ii'bh citizens are to be commended for mak ing early arrangements for the proper cele bration of the hundredth anniversary of our nation's birthday. We trust, in fact know that all of our citizens will do their utmost towards making a grand success of this glor ious holiday. A Free I'niversity. I»y the liberality of the lion. Asa Packer, Lehigh University at South Bethlehem, Pa., is a Free Institution, not a cent being charg ed for tuition. The corps of instructors is large and composed of the leading professors of the country. The Institution possesses admirable facilities for giving a thorough education in Civil, Mechanical, and Mining Engineering, and Chemistry and Metallurgy. It has also a Classical Course; aud excellent instruction in French and German. Its location in the midst of the great coal, iron, aud zinc mines of this country, and in a place famous for its manufacturing and rail way interests, and its access to to the vast workshops of New York and Philadelphia, gives the Institution unusual and unsurpassed facilities. Catalogues will be furnished by addressing John M. Leavitt, President. The Catholic Church—A New Organ Needed. The lecture delivered by the Rev. Father Palladiuo last night, at the Church of the Sacred Hearts, was excellent, abounding in logical propositions and happy illustrations. But the organ is sadly out of tuue, and the horrible, asthmatic wheezing of the instru ment was annoying to the audience. How much in keeping with the grand appoint ments of this splendid church would be a small organ of about 500 pipes. Let us hope that the Rev. Father, with the aid of his re spectable congregation, w ill supply this need ful auxiliary of the solemn ceremonies of the Catholic Church. We suggest that a sub scription list be started for this purpose. .--— .4 4 ^^> ►* » —--- earthquake at Bozeman. At nine o'clock last Friday night Bozeman was shaken up with a considerable earth quake. The trembling was distinctly felt by many persons favorably located to notice it; and it was accompanied by the usual noise attendant on such occasions. The phenom enon was felt for four orfive seconds—plenty of time to feel aud appreciate the fact that this part of mother earth was laboring with the throes of internal volcanic disturbances. — Time» 20 th inst. Stay By Montana. We are allowed to make the following ex tract from a letter sent to Major Boyce by C, C. Ilousel, one of Omaha's most enterprising merchants. The writer was once a resident of Montana, and knows what he is writing about. "Black Ilills excitement is a little cool just now. Montana is a better country to go to now for gold, or anything else, and I advise all to stay there until sure of better ing tbeir condition elsewhere." l*hili|»Mburir Item**. Win.

A rare chance for a bargain is presented. An earthquake shock was felt at Benson's Landing at 10 p. m. on the 14th instant. So David Carpenter writes. It lasted about 15 seconds, as nearly as he could estimate. —We are glad to learn that a big clean-up was made at the Cherry creek mines. How silver bearing quartz can be made to give up its treasure without the aid of machinery, is too much for us. We give it up. Perhaps the tw T o or three miners there have simply cleaned up their shafts. From the Daily Herald of April 25. Personal. —Mrs. Felix Poznainsky and children left for Butte this morning. — T. F. Coryell and M. D. Hathaw'ay left this morning for the Pipestone country. —Mr. B. R.

Ohlen and others will put up a smelter at Butte, to be used for smelting of copper ores. Some of the richest gold bearing quartz specimens have recently been taken from the Old Rocker. The Farlin mill at Butte will start up about the 10th of May. Mr. Farlin has made a rich strike on one of his lodes in Silver Bow\ Wolverton & Co. have erected and in run ning order, one of the best arastras in the Territory. It is located on Silver Bow creek, and is now crushing ore from the old Rocker lode, near Rocker City. Two additional ones will be erected for the purpose of crushing silver ore. . Sale of a Valuable Horse. Sol. Star's celebrated trotter Eagle, has changed owners. Ches. Travis paid $500 for him, the buggy and harness, which is considered to be very cheap. Eagle has trot ted his mile in 2:45, and recently Ches. Tra vis put him aud mate over a mile track inside three minutes. This makes without doubt the finest trotting team in the country, and it believed they will continue to improve their speed from now on. Territorial Fair. We have received the premium list of the Seventh Annual Fair of the Montana Agri cultural, Mineral and Mechanical Association, commence at Helena, Monday, September 25, 1870, and continue six days. It was print at the Herald office and is an excellent job. The premiums offered by the Associa tion, and the special premiums, are liberal and the Fair will no doubt be the best ever held in the Territory. We shall allude to the matter again .—Bozeman Courier. Building: Xote*. Mr. Hudson is building a cottage residence on Lawrence street. The residence of S. Lavenberg, on Curtis street,* is rapidly approaching completion. The plasterers are at work on the residence T. C. Power, on Benton avenue, and it will soon be completed and ready for occu pancy. The Black Hill's Swindle. That patent swindle, the Black Hills gold fields, is being rapidly exposed for what it really is. Thousands of credulous adventur ers have fitted themselves out at large outlay, and gone out there, only to find out that they have been egregiously deceived, and if there is any gold at all it is clear it does not exist in paying quantities. The prices of provis ions, too, are fast rising to forty-nine rates. Already flour is quoted at 12 cents a pound, bacon at 25, sugar at 40, salt at 17, while molasses sells from $2 50 to $3 a gallon, and tobacco at $1 50 per pound. The miner or prospector has to travel 250 miles from the nearest railroad connection, and he then reaches a gold field where with skill and luck combined, he may make as much as a dollar a day, though nine out of teD make absolutely nothing. A correspondent of the New York Times , who has been on the ground, reports that the largest amount realized at the mines is $55 in one month. A correspondent of the Kansas City Times says he has gone carefully over the mines, and has not yet seen a nug get; that no gold from the mines has been sold at Custer City; and that old miners be lieve the mines to be a fraud. Of course op posite views are imposed upon all who visit Cheyenne, or any other of the outfitting town, for it is in their interest that all the ex citement has been made and kept up. Pres ently, however, there will be a real suffering among the dupes, and not improbably some loss of life. The National Park. From a private letter written by a promi nent lawyer in Washington, D. C., we learn that there is a movement on foot among a large number of Congressmen having for its object the turning of the National Park over to the War Department. Should this be ac complished, it is probable that the Signal Service will locate a station on Mount Wash burne. ^ _ Shipments to Whoop-Up. T. C. Power & Co., shipped this morning for Whoop-Up two wagon loads of agricul tural implements, 10,000 pounds of oats, and tw T o Chinamen.

From the Daily Ilerald of April 26. Personal. —Hon. Alex. Carmichael, of Silver Star, arrived last night. —Mr. E. Lindgren, of Jefferson City, gave us a call this morning. —Capt. Reese, of St. Louis, Upper Indian Creek, was in the city to-day. —Wm. Johns, of the Upper Tollgate. Ben ton road, w r as in the city to-day. —Hon. Cornelius Hedges returned last evening from Virginia City, where he has been looking after the interests of the public schools. —Capt. Joseph Wright, of the Bozeman Courier , who has been going through a severe seige of rheumatism, is now, we are pleased to note, improving. —Our young friend, A. P. Curtin, who, for the past four months, has been "on the carpet," returned home on the overland last night. During his absence, Arthur visited San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, St. Louis, and, in fact, all the cities of note in the States. Says he had a good time, but is glad to get back to Montana again, which he thinks is a little the best country in "America." Power of tke Public Press. Mr. Hedges, during bis lecture last evening at Templar's Hall spoke of the great power of the public press as an educator of the peo ple, and compared the few' and feeble news papers of the Revolutionary period with the "Centennial newspaper" of to-day that is wielding and moulding the intelligence of the people. Speaking of the Territorial press, the lecturer said that our Montana papers were a credit to our people, and that, consid ering population, they circulated to a greater extent than the papers of any other Territory or State in the Union. This, in the opinion of the lecturer, w as due to the value placed on our journals as instruments of information and education.— Madisonian. Manufacture of Cheese. Mr. J. O. Proctor, the leading dairyman of Meagher county paid us a visit to-day. Mr. Procter 'ast year, turned out from his place near Brewer's Springs, in one hundred days, five tons of cheese. This year he proposes to manufacture at least ten tons. He has re ceived the latest improvements in apparatuses and is not only prepared to turn out large quantities but also a superior quality of cheese. a M. J 'MW W Ttae Shooting' Match at l>eer Lodge.

BENTON MERCHANTS ARRESTER ON BRITISH SOIL. They are Confined at Fort Macleod. Fort Benton, April 23, 1876. To the Editor of the Herald : Reliable information Las been received here that the w r ell known wholesale liquor mer chant (H. E. Bond) of this tow T n, was on the 10th inst. incarcerated in the post guard house at Fort Macleod for attempting to carry liquors over the line. It appears that Mr. Bond and Judge Ivanouse (both of Bentou) arrived at Fort Macleod on the 7th instant, accompanied by Castner's teams loaded with flour, sugar, etc. On the 13th instant, Mr. Bond w r as reported to have gone to Whoop Up, and on the evening of the 15th, Major Irvine, with a detachment of mounted police, took the same road, and as believed, in search of whisky. On their way thither they met Bond and Johnny Kennedy in a spring wagon, who, upon seeing the police approach, immediately wheeled around and fled, with the police in pursuit, who came upon them on the Saint Mary's river, to find them throw ing several cases of alcohol into the water. Bond and Kennedy were immediately ar rested, and are now confined at Fort Macleod, awaiting trial, the former as principal and the latter as accessory. BENTON. Seizure of Buffalo Robes. Our Benton correspondent writes that Deputy U. S. Marshal, J. X. Beidler, accom panied by a detachment of United States troops of the 7th infantry from Fort Benton, M. T., under command of Lieut. Hardin, 7th infantry, made a capture on the 21st, of one four-horse wagon loaded with about 60 buffalo robes and other property, the same belonging to Mr. Frank Robinson. The seizure was made for violation of the Intercourse Laws, and particularly for violation of instructions relating to the sale of ammunition to the Indians in certain localities. "X" returned to Benton on the 23d inst. Sale of the By water Property Yesterday Messrs. Curtis & Booker sold at Trustee's sale a portion of the Bywater prop erty, four and a half miles from town. The sale was well attended. The personal prop erty, consisting of horses, mules, cows, pigs, etc., brought good figures. The property known as the old Bullard ranche, with its residence, outbuildings, etc., and its 104 acres of splendid farming land brought $7.55 per acre. Mr. John Leeson was the purchaser. There is reserved for a future sale 120 acres adjoining. From Carroll. Mr. Richard Deatley, recently from Car roll, informs us that considerable trading has been going on at that point during the past winter. The trading at Clagett was also brisk. Buffalo were plenty in the country adjacent, and good takes were made. Boats are ex pected to arrive by the 10th of May, at Car roll. Mr. Deatley left to-day for Pioneer where he goes to look after his mining inter ests at that place. No More Wild Guo*e Chases in His. Billy Martin W'ho left the Black Hills with out finding the rich mines spoken of as exist ing there has located near Brewer's Springs in Meagher Co., and will go in the sheep raising business on a large scale. He wants no more "wild goose chases" in his. Half-Breeds of Ibe Right »tamp. The Watson Brothers of Benton gulch, Meagher county, found in their band of sheep a ram of the mountain sheep tribe. This was last fall and now the boys boast of having ouite a number of half-breeds. So Bill. In the case of the Territory vs. Harpin Davis, the Grand Jury of Meagher county failed to find an indictment, and Davis was discharged. Grady, the soldier, was also discharged for the same reason. —Messrs. Brown & Weisenhorn have not contracted with Gilmer & Salisbury to per form tbeir horse shoeing.

By a private dispatch from Bozeman, we learn that Judge J. M. Castner died in that place on the morning of the 22d inst. after a short illness. The deceased was among the first settlers of Montana. He was known throughout the Territory as a whole souled gentleman, full of enterprise and vim, and one who when in the enjoyment of a large competency freely succored the unfor tunate, and often gave to the undeserving. He was for a number of years proprietor of one of the Virginia City hotels, and filled for one term the office of Mayor of the same place. Since 1871 he resided in Bozeman. He leaves a wife and child to mourn his loss. BREVITIES. —The miners will soon commence w'orking in Thompson's gulch. —J. E. Cole is erecting a large residence on the west side.

Notwithstanding the anticipated grasshopper visitation, a good acreage •will be sown in Prickly Pear Valley. —Ross Deegan has invented and applied for a patent for a self-regulating, front-action nest for setting hens. A personal inspection of the machine w ill convince the incredulous that patent incubators will have to step down aud out. —A leading carpenter informs us that more buildings are already in process of construc tion in Helena than were erected during the entire season of 1875. Judging from this the prospect is very inviting for a busy season in the building line. MARRIED. At St Louis. Missouri, March 28th, 1876, at the resi dence ot the bride's father, by the Rev. P. G.
