Returning to Territory after a tnree years' absence, I hing to confirm impressions formed i «ee every .,ftci an eight years'residence amongst you. I am glati to see the evidences of prosperity evreywhere. When the world comes to know of you r \;ist grazing fields, covered with beef herds, u liit-li command the highest prices in the markets of the East; of your facilities for producing the liest quality of mutton and wool : of your innumerable health-giving mineral springs; of the productiveness of vour soil, upon which more than one hun dred bushels of the finest wheat to the acre have been raised; of the fact that mines arc e instantly being discovered which are eagerly I (ought up at even a million apiece by out ride capital, it will realize the fact that you ir«ÄiiX'!S5t« grandest States t'nion of ours, is natural that .should flock to of this great and glorious On returning to Montana it a crowd of reminiscences my mind. That I should !ddImm'^ nàtS^ the reminiscences are not a little amusing. In looking over a scrap-book recently 1 came across a piece of poetry at which you will doubtless be amused, in view of the results attained. It purports to he a correspondence between the Governor of this Territory and myself, and commencing with a dispatch of mine from Big Hole immediately after the tiiilit. It reads: We've had a hard tight. And I'm sorry to say They've whipped us out quite, And the devil's to pay. ! wait at Dig Hole For an answer from you. And confess on my soul I don't know what to do. The Governor's answer is: Licked again ? Your command Nearly turned inside out? Did Chief Joe take a hand. Or was Howard about? Your dispatch, trusty soul, I answer this minute, I f you're near a Big Hole You'd l>etter crawl in it ! Well, we did crawl in it, and Chief Joseph craw led out of it, and that so rapidly that Howard never caught him. lu connection with this matter I desire to remark that we never should have been able to so completely surprise Chief Joseph's camp but for the fact that lie neglected to take any precaution by leaving scouts or lies in his rear to give him notice of danger. We left Fort Missoula in broad daylight on •lie 1th of August, and every day until the evening of the 8th marched in broad - day light up the Bitter Root valley and over the Kooky Mountain divide, so that anybody on the look-out could have seen us, and, had they chosen, have, by a night ride, informed Joseph of our approach. By sundown of the 8th we were within four miles of his camp. Von all know of the midnight march and the surprise which followed it ; of our being ; overpowered, and of our retreat to the point 1 of timber near the battle ground. That point of timber was the "big hole" referred j to. 1 suppose, by the poet I have just quoted, : and a welcome big hole it was to us! The j desperate efforts of the Indians to dislodge ns failed, and by daylight the next morning tlu* w hole camp had diappeared, leaving be hind but a few scattering Indians to watch us. Two days after the battle General How- 1 •ml ani\ed. to find us burying our dead, our train 111 cam]), and our men cooking their rations and washing from their persons the hlood and dirt of battle. \Mien the campaign was over, the smoke "t battle had cleared away, and the news papers began to tell their story, derived from various participants, who by that time had made their way down the Missouri river, I "as considerably surprised to read iu the Helena Herald of the 7th of November an account copied from an Eastern paper in "hiih occurs the following: 'As to General Gibbon, the facts arc that hi spite of the most desperate lighting lie " as Tiiiall y surrounded, and hud not General 1 a ' b , e da J. lbcrc W0ldd baNe 'ken lolt ot him and ot Ins command lust as much as was left of Custer and Iris brave trcH.^s." k is proper to remark that General How uni denies all responsibility for this remark statement, and in view of the facts I Hi.11k tu* may leave the determination of tlie question it raises to the future historian, ben.

He paid an eloquent tribute to the gallant soldier who had protected tlie homes and shed his blood in defence of the people of Montana.

The camp of Engineer Chesbrough now in charge is located on Prickly Pear Creek, just south of the Bozeman crossing, where a half dozen large wall and Sibley tents are pitched. The locating line was completed on Saturday to a point one mile east of Prickly Pear, and to-day several preliminary lines will he run to ascertain the best loca tion for the creek crossing. Mr. Chesbrough expects the present week to reach the vicinity of Helena. It will not he deter mined at once whether or not the final sur vey will locate the line inside the corporate limits of Helena.
