November 9th. ls>77.j
General orders No. 10.
Portions of the Second Cavalry having
served creditably in the late campaign against
the Nez Perce Indians, the Regimental Com
mander deems it his duty to thank them for
their good conduct in the lights at liig Hole
Basin, Camas Prairie and Snake Creek, Mon
tana. Of the small detachment that partici
pated, tinder General Gibbon, in the fierce
fight at Big Hole Basin, on the 9th of Aug
ust, 1877, Sergeant Edward Page, of Com
pany L, was killed, and private Charles B.
Gould, of Company F, was wounded.
Captain Norwood and his Company (L)
behaved with great credit in the fight at
Camas Prairie, on the 20th of August, 1877,
*uul successfully he^d its own against over
powering odds. In this affair Lieut. Henry
M. Benson of the Seventh Infantry, who was
serving with the company, was wounded.
First Sergeant Henry Wilkins, Corporal
Harry Garland, Blacksmith Samuel A. Glass,
Farrier William Jones, and Privates Harry
Trevor and Wiford Clark were wounded;
Blacksmith Glass and Private Trevor mor
tally.
In the fighting which occurred from the
30th of September to the 5th of October,
1877, at Snake Creek, in the Bear Paw Moun
tains, under Colonel Miles, and which led to
the final surrender of the Nez Perces, a bat
talion of three companies, viz : F, G and H,
under Captain George L. Tyler, bore an hon
orable part, and he, with Second Lieutenants
Edward J. McClernandand Lovell H. Jerome,
distinguished themselves by their gallantry.
Paivate John Irwing, of Company G, was
killed, and Private James Farrell, of Com
pany F, wa9 wounded at this place.
By order of Col. A. G. Brackett, Com
manding Regiment.

The killiug of five Nez Perce Indians by
the River Crows is reported by parties from
the lower Yellowstone.
George D. Thomas and wife, of Gallatin
city, have been in town several days, and we
regret to learn that Mrs. Thomas is quite ill,
aud not able to return home for the present.
The immigration to Gallatin county during
the fall and summer has been much greater
than we supposed. There has been an in
crease of at least 200 persons in the popula
tion of this county during this year, and what
adds to the satisfaction, most of these im
migrants propose to settle on ranches and
remain permanently. Several good ime
chanics of various trades have also become
residents of Bozeman .—Bozeman Times.

—Marshal on the wood pile—
Don't you hear him holler?
''All the coals from Ten Mile
Must pay a dutiable dollar."
—Col. Janes, the District Quartermaster,
has leased Pärchen's brick building, on Up

•John Anderson, my Jo John, ,
It wasn't kind of you
To seize- our wood as you have done—
It cools ai d chills us so.
G this a name of "freeze oat," John ?
It looks much like a "corner"—
W e didn't think you'd do It, John,
It makes us feel forlom-er.
From the Daily Herald of November 20,
Hood.
There is a good deal of misapprehension
in regard to the wood business, as we are in
formed. District Attorney Anderson, on his
arrival here, found certain instructions to
proceed against parties named who had cut
and removed from, or had large quantities of
wood cut down on, the public lands. The
necessary attachments were placed in the
hands of the United States Marshal, who has
made a number of seizures, and this wood
cannot be removed until by order of the
court, which the owners can obtain by giving
bonds for its appraised value, to abide the
result of the suit, after which they can sell
it. The Marshal has not, and does not,
claim any authority to disturb persons who
bring wood into town, whose "wood has not
been attached by him, and until it is attached
we do not see why persons having wood to
sell cannot bring it into town and sell it
until they are proceeded against according to
law. So, bring in your wood.
The Road to Butte.
Advices from Boulder state that Chet
Iligley, Capt. Cook, Z. N. Thompson, A. J
Elder, W. L. Lee and Mr. Montgomery have
been putting good work upon the Butte road
at their own expense. The road has been
put in good condition from Boulder to
point beyond Boomerang gulch. A trifle
more labor would fix the points at the mouth
of High Ore gulch, and thus avoid a crossing
of the Boulder altogether. Parties who are
acquainted with the road say that a compara
tively small amount of money would put it in
good shape for wagons through to Butte.
Can't the money be raised ? If an effort was
made we believe the balance of the money
could be raised in Helena in one day. Vir
gmia city is building a road to connect her
self with Butte. Has Helena less enterprise
than Virginia ?

[From the Mis*oulian, November 16.]
Our old friends of the Seventh Infantry,
who have been with us for the past four
months, whose history during the stirring
scenes of their sojourn is a part of the his
tory of this county, and whose men can
always look to this locality with pride of
achievements here, and we trust with pleas
ant recollections of the place and people,
took their departure last Wednesday—Cap-
tain Rawn and his force for Fort Shaw, and
Captain Browning and his force for Fort
Ellis. There is a general feeling of regret at
parting with our friends of the Seventh
When Captain Rawn was unjustly censured
last summer, he found men here who were
willing to do him full justice, and he must
know that he has no truer or warmer
friends anywhere thau in Missoula county
Captain Browning, who has been with us
since the Big Hole fight, has impressed us
with an opinion of his urbanity and soldierly
bearing. Lieuts. Woodruff, Johnson, and Van
Orsdale, and Dr. Terry all leave behind
them many warm friends. There are other
officers ot the regiment who have sojourned
briefly with us, for whom we entertain feel-
ings of kindness and attachment. Ever
since the Big Hole battle, there has been a
feeling that this regiment was peculiarly our
own, and we are certain that that event has
attached them to our section and people.
Wherever the lot of this regiment may be
cast, we will follow them with our best
wishes.

Wants to Hear From the Officers.
Helena, Oct. 20.
To the Editor of the Herald:
I was highly pleased with the article in the
Herald of the 18th inst, headed "An Amaz
ing Blunder," but you seem to exonorate our
Territorial officials. I hope you are right ;
but how would it do to allow them to exon
orate themselves of any complicity in the
matter of seizure, over their own signasures?

Government Architect Hill, in his recent
report upon United States buildings, refers
to the Helena Assay Office as follows : "This
building has been occupied for some months.
The lot is yet to be graded, paved, and fenced
in, the appropriation for the building being
insufficient to complete this portion of the
work." An appropriation of $10,0Q0 is re
quired to complete the grade and erect the
enclosure as originally planned. This sum
will doubtless be recommended by the Archi
