Our traveling agent, Joseph W. Allen, left this mornAg for Beaverhead county and the Salmon river mines, to interview the people of those sections in behalf of the Hbkald. On his way over he will visit Whitehall, Fish Creek, Silver Star, Iron Rod, Twin Bridges, Gaffney, and Sheridan. We expect those who are in arrears to have the greenbacks ready to liquidate when Jo. calls upon them, and we give this timely notice, so that no reasonable excuse can be offered why they should not "square up." Jo. has proven himself a very successful canvasser, and our friends will find him a9 pleasant and agree able as he is efficient in this line of business. ^m ** ^ Death of Augustus Steiti. Wo are pained to learn of the demise of this gentleman, which took place yesterday. Mr. 5. was known all through the West from his connection with the St. Louis binciting and liefining Company. In him our city has met with a great loss, and science one of its brightest advocates.— St. Louis Glube-Demo cml, 18th iust. Professor Steilz came to this Territory in lyOO, as Superintendent and mettallurgist of the St. Louis and Montana Mining Company, and was afterwards assayer of the First National Bank of Helena, a position which he held until 1871, when he went to St. Louis to assume control of the Smelting and Refin ing woiksof that city. He was a school mate of T. II. Kleinschmidt, assistant cash ier of the First National Bank, and graduated at Frieberg, with high honors. His Father, Mathias Steitz, resides in St. Louis.

He proposes to come back double. ^ _ PRICKLY PEAR CÂSïOSi. A The Repairs to be Made at Onee. Commissioner Pärchen informs us that a large force of laborers have been set to work in the Prickly Pear Canyon, and that the re pairs will be made as soon as possible. The grades will also be repaired, and the whole road put in passbale condition for freighting and traveling purposes within ten days from this time. Messrs. Pärchen and Fergus esti mate the cost at about $2,000, although it may possibly be a little more than that. The prospect is very inviting now to freighters, merchants, business men, and all concerned. THE FLOOD! The Jefferson River Brldjje Swept Away. The Overland coach last night came in without an eastern mail, the coach from be low not having made connection at White hall. Upon inquiry we learned that the Jefferson bridge, at the crossing of Jefferson river, had been swept way by the flood. There is a bridge over the river at Iron Rod, about eight miles above Silver Star, and transportation, pending the rebuilding of the bridge, will not be much retardad. Montana Mining. Under the above heading the Scientific Mining Press says: " There are many places along the Missouri river where there are bars and bank washings, but they do not amount to much. However if the stream could be turned, an immense amount of gold would in all probability be taken from the bars. Noth ing but a very heavy operation could do any thing iu this direction. The big Alder gulch, which built up Virginia City, is claimed to have produced all the way from $30,000,000 to $70,000,000, and paid the whole length of 14 miles. They still work here every sum mer. Another famous canyon, Last Chance gulch, built of the city of Helena. In this gulch they are now building a long bed-rock flume, which they are going to take all the way up. About a mile of it was built last summer. The gulch is very deep, and for merly pits were dug and the dirt hoisted out. With the ditch they will be able to work much lower down and get on the bottom, where they could not work advantageously before. The flume is being built by Mr. Wm. A. Chessman, the owner of the water privil eges. There are many other placer grounds all over the Territory, but those spoken of are the most prominent. In most instances it takes great trouble and heavy capital to get iu the water,and overcome lack of dump. Nj nA|wl« of BM« for PlMterlac the IT. A. Anmjt office, Helena, Men tana.

Is this the Reason a Republican Governor Approved the Democratic Printing Bill ? A new partner has been taken into the firm of Kerley, McQuaid, LaCroix & Co., publish ers of the Independent. Just when this change was made the records do not show, but it would be very natural to presume that it was about the time of the approval of the odious Democratic Printing Bill, in January laet. Although it has been generally believed for some time that Gov. Potts was propriete rially connected with the Bourbon print, yet yesterday's Independent contained the first authentic, public announcement of the fact. We quote from the Independent of the 28th inst. "Before leaving this city Mr. Countryman stated to a number of gentlemen, besides persons connected with the Independent (Gov. Potts for one) that he had given no such information as that published." * * On such occasions we believe it is custom ary to extend the best wishes of the craft, etc., etc. Some people deem it a little out of place for a Republican Governor to be inti mately connected, personally and financially, with the leeding Democratic organ of our Territory. We presume the public announce ment would not have been made at this time bad not the Governor become convinced that bis career as Montana's Executive was nearly run. Potts will make an excellent figure head for the editorial staff of the Independ ent. Put a label on bis back, and let it read— " This is an editor." An Old Patriot Gone. A few weeks ago Capt. Andrew Dusold re ceived a letter from his aged father begging that he would -pay him a visit soon. The Captain immediately set to work to close his business affairs, and was upon the eve of starting, when be received the sad news of bis father's tfeath. The shock was sud den and terrible, and the Captain has the sympathy of all in this his hour of bereave ment. Some antecedents of the veteran's life will prove to be of interest to many. John Dusold w T ho departed this life at the age of 88 years, in Brooklyn, was a native of Ba varia. When the revolution of '48 broke out, he was prominent among the brave spirits and worked as zealously with the sword as the pen in the cause of liberty. Several im portant trusts were confided to him, and never once did he fail in carrying out suc cessfully his missions. At last, the attempt of the patriots proving unsuccessful, he was obliged to flee from the country. After many narrow escapes and suffering from ex posure, he at last reached the seaboard. He fled to America, leaving behind his family, home and means, and landed in Brooklyn, but was soon after joined by the members of his family. When the last war broke out, two of his sons gallantly and promptly re sponded to the call, and did noble service in the Union cause. The father, then upwards of 70 years of age, eager to assist his sons, wrote them that he, too, must bear a hand for his adopted country. This his sons would not listen to, and it was with great difficulty they could prevent him from going into ac tive service. It was unnecessary, for his boys did sufficient for their family name and the Great Cause. One fell in battle and now lies in a Virginia grave. The other, Capt. Andrew Dusold, of Montana, passed through many a well fought battle, and at one time commanded the Post at Kansas City. Mr. John Dnsold leaves two sons and three daughters to mourn the departure of a kind father, good counselor, and a brave patriot. Peace to his ashes. From Carroll. —A letter received from Carroll, dated the 25th inst., states that no boats but those here tofore made mention of have passed up. The steamer Durfee is expected down the same day. The river had been eleven feet above low water mark, but was slowly falling. A Beantiful Hammer. We were shown to-day one of the best made hammers it has been our good fortune to examine. It was made in Quincy, 111., by a fifteen year old nephew of Mr. A. Weisen horn, of this place. The workmanship dis played would reflect credit upon the best of mechanics.

The Prickly Pear Canyon Matter. + * * After having said this much, we desire to call the attention of those who are invoking the County Commissioners to all and any cost to put the load in immediate re pair, to the fact that these same Commission ers have been almost daily abused by these same clamorers, for reckless management of the county finances. The above is an extract from an article that appeared in the local columns of the Herald on Saturday last. It was intended for the benefit of the Independent , which sheet, since- it came usder the Barret rule, has not let an opportunity go by to throw mud at our Board of County Commissioners, accusing them of extravagance and hinting at malfeasance, and, by lies and inuendoes, doing its utmost to cripple the credit of the county. The article was so construed by the majority of our readers. The day previous, on Friday, w T e published a petition to the Commissioners, asking them to rebuild the bridges in Prickly Pear canyon and put the road in order immediately, at any cost. It Was signed by the Main street merchants, representing the biflk of the taxable property of the county, and to which we cheerfully added the names of the publishers of the Herald. The article in Saturday's Herald, worded rather loosely we will admit, was misconstrued by several signers of the peti tion, who imagined that we referred to them as the "clamorers." In regard to this errou ious impression, we have only this to say : That we never yet heard a tax-payer of this county, be he Republican or Democrat, (out side of the Independent office,) accuse the Board of Commissioners of this county of "reckless management of the county finan ces." Personal. —Harvey Wells, one of the foremost far mers of Eastern Montana, is in the city. —Caldw ell and Horace Edwards, ranchmen of Gallatin Valley are in the city, and will soon leave for the States. —S. Koenigsberger and wife, S. H. Crounse and Miss Mather, left this morning for the States via Franklin. —Mrs. W. A. Clark and family, are ex pected to arrive from Deer Lodge this even ing, and take the morning coach for Benton. They are desirous of securing passage on the steamer Nellie Peck. They go to pay a visit to their Pennsylvania home. The Storm. The rain and snow storm which com menced yesterday morning and is still pre vailing, may prove even more destructive to bridges and grades than that of two weeks ago. This will be a hard blow to freighters, and is likely to delay the arrival of goods from Benton at least two weeks. The ".lakes," as a matter of course, will be im passible for some time, except perhaps for light vehicles and mackinaws. In addition to the heavy rain fall, the mountains about us are covered .with snow to the depth of several inches, which cannot fail to greatly increase the flood. While this storm will be hard on freighters, the miners will profit by it. In fact, this promises to be a prosperous mining season. Cave Gulch Items. E. N. Ingersoll, merchant at Cave Gulch, in the city to-day, reports the Missouri very high at Canyon Ferry. The late storm did considerable damage to the miners in Cave Gulch. The drain in the ground in which Mr. Ingersoll is a partner, caved in, and the water backed up, stopping operations for the time. The water in the upper shaft is thirty feet deep. It will cost the company at least $500 to re-open the drain; but they have good diggings and plenty of ground. The Prickly Pear Booming;« Reports from the valley are to the effect that the present storm has fairly deluged that portion of the country. The Prickly Pear is booming, and each gulch and little hollow is filled with water. It is feared that more damage will be done to the road through the canyon. But few particulars of the damages by the late storm have yet come to hand, though it is believed that the loss entailed will be considerable, as the present rain seems to be general. JEST RECEIVED, A Full assortment of WALLPAPER AM» BLANK BOOKS, From the East, via Benton, by d3t&wlt-my30 H. M. PÄRCHEN & CO. Road to the Rum ley Mine. A. M. Holter and others interested in the well known Rumley mine, are actively en gaged in building a road from Jefferson City to the town of Corbin. This is a good move, as it obviates the necessity of crossing the Boulder range, and shortens the distance by five miles. New Kind of Apple Bntter. A Prickly Pear farmer, so we have been informed, is utilizing the grasshoppers by grinding them into an unrecognizable mass, and selling the mixture for a superior quality of apple butter. - m I iai ---- ---- BREVITIES. —The ores of the Comet mine are now be ing separated with a Cornish jig. —A superior quality of high grade ore has been recently struck on the east level of the Rumley mine. —From a private letter we learn that Shed's bridge on the Madison was carried away recently, and the one crossing the slough is expected to go soon.

A flying trip through Unionville, Park City and surrounding country taken by your correspondent on Saturday, is given in these hastily collected notes. Passing up the gulch, we came to mining claim No. 3, in Oro Finn, where we found John H. Bast at work taking out good pay and confident of better in the future. At Unionville we saw Mr. Martin dale who had the misfortune last Friday of losing two fingers, at first joint, while en gaged in oiling the eccentric valve rod, at the hoisting works. Below Unionville, Jacob Schafier keep« his arastra humming away on rock taken from the various lodes. Tim Smith is busily en gaged in taking out rock on shares. The stores of this place seem to be doing a good business, and both Thomas O'Connor's and P. Constant respective establishments are carrying good stocks. Fred Beucler. the vul can of Unionville, keeps his blacksmithing works pegging away from early morn to dewy eve. We paid a hasty trip to the Union lode, and are indebted to Supt. S. J. Jones for in formation concerning this famous mine. We learn that a large vein, on an opposing dip, strikes across the Union. The hanging wall was struck at 900 feet from the surface and the incline was driven 54 feet across this new vein, without any sign of the foot wall. Increasing dopth and water proved too much for boiler and pumps, and the mine is now closed awaiting the arrival of new machinery. The crossing veiu has smashed up and im poverished the Union for 200 feet above -where they struck the hanging wall. From here we passed on to Park City and found quite lively times existing there. Geo. V. Stokey has plenty to attend to in the mer chandising line. E. B. McCrea is operating in quartz. Ben. Malben has taken the con tract for hauling timbers to the mines. The Harvey mill is running on ore from the Park andParkinson mines. The rock from the Park inson belongs to Mr. R. McNeil, who will have 500 tons crushed this run. Mr. Mc Neil cleaned up $6000 from 238 tons of the same quality, a short time since. The ore from the Park is taken out by the Pedro Company, who propose crushing soon about 150 tons of rich rock. Mr. McNeil .is also running a good paying placer mine in the Park. At Nelson gulch we found W. V. Harlan and D. P. Fletcher, who are working hard on their respective claims, with good success. We returned by way of the Hot Springs, and found the hotel, bath houses, etc., in good running order, all under the charge of Eu gene Meyer, who is undoubtedly the man for the placé. J. W. A. Bridge Gone. The report that the Jefferson bridge was carried away by high water last week is not true. The bridge over the Pipestone, how ever, a few miles beyond Whitehall, was washed away Monday, and freighters are de tained at that point. The coach changes mail and passengers at that point.
