The school trustees have begun work on the school fence, which together with the grading of the sChool lot will be completed by the commencement, Sept. 1st. The river is falling about two iinches per day, although it has not yet reached the level recorded last week. The heavy rains raised it rapidly and its affects are now disappear ing. Capt. Dewey received a set of surveying instruments per steamer Benton, which are the finest we have seen. It has the solar at tachment and other conveniences required in accurate work. C. D. Storer will resume operations on his brick yard July 6 h. The demand for building purposes exceeds by far that of last season. We are glad to note this evidence of increased prosperity. The ladies of the Catholic Church will give a strawberry festival at the Court House on the evenings of July 41h and 5th. There will be music and dancing, and a most enjoy able time is assured. N. B.

The school trustees, at their meeting last Saturday night, considered the application for teacners, and selected Mr. Clinghan to act as principal, and Miss Finnegan as teach er of the primary department for the ensu ing year. We heard a young lady, the other evening, singing, "Dem Golden Slippers I'se Bound for to Wear," and when we asked her where she was going to get them, she said, "Why, at I. G. Baker & Co.'s, of course, dear, and they're just too cute! U-u-m:" 1'. C. Power has constructed a large, fire proof and iron roofed warehouse at Bis marck, for the accommodation of the Benton "P" line freight. The building is 60 by 150 feet in dimensions, and will add greatly to the facilitics of this line in receiving and caring for freight consigned through it.

Gans & Klein have purchased the property where the Benton Saloon now stands from J. C. Ward. The price paid was $45 per foot-conclusive proof that real estate is valued highly here. The firm who have made the purchase will at once erect thereon a two story brick building for their business house. Among the larger building enterprises of the season is a two-story brick building by Col. Clendenin, to be used as an office and wareroom by that gentleman in his forward ing business. It will be a plain but not un handsome structure, 26x60, and will prove a handsome addition to that section of the town. T. C. Power & Bro. shipped over 300,000 pounds of freight between Saturday morn ing and Monday night, mostly consigned to Chas. Lehman, A. M. Holter, Clark, Conrad & Curtin, John R. Watson and Conrad & Muth, of Helens. A large consignment was shipped to-day to Spencer & Co., of White Sulphur Springs. E Messrs.

We are glad to notice that a more religious a sentiment is springing up among the young men of Benton and vicinity. We learn that a prayer meeting was held a short distance from town last Sunday, in which some of our B young friends took an active part, and gave evidence, by the earnestness with which they a entered into the spirit of the services, of the sincerity of their conversion. th Mr. Win. Gradonne, while opening a drift in his placer claim, below Beartown, last o week, was caved on by about a ton of rock st and earth, and his left leg broken three or hi four inches above the ankle. He exhumed is himself and walked 800 yards to procure as sistance. Thos. Lewis, Jos. Skiffington and di Win. Fisher brought him in for treatment Saturday. He is under care of Dr. Hanks, g and doing nicely.-New North- West. We know of nothing that would enhance cc the taste of ripe and luscious strawberries at more than receiving them at the hands of the of fair daughters of Benton. The man who CC would not enjoy them under these circum- o stances will not patronize the ladies at the CO Dourt House to-morrow evening, but the man er who loves the good things of this earth, and who can appreciate the society of the fairer ad better portion of humanity, will be there Io a full force. ste The boys have chopped on playingl cards 'or drinks and cigars, and a more elevated to nd worthy sentiment has obtained posses- rei ion ot their minds. Such vain and paltry re; bjects as "Sour Mash," "O. K.,," "Key h €'est," etc., no longer interest them-they h ave risen above the enjoyment of the things '' f this earth-and now devote their leisure me to the improvement of their minds and Cl t the same time the welfare of their soulsiri Ro laying "freeze-out" for revised editidns of wii he New Testament. of s- Virginia City is going o have one of those - old-fashioned jolitications on the fourth. d A violinist has been secured regardless of cost, and at 10 a. m. the two Tom's of the is tdisdoniian, the Postmaster, the justice of t the peace, and the other two inhabitants will form in a grand possession, and, headed by the music, will march up the lane two miles to the nearest house, where an oration will be delivered by the Justice. 'Rah for the e galorious 4-h. Patriotism blossoms forth r from every school district in America. Holter & Ells are rafting about 25,000 feet b of lumber per week from their mill on Stick o ney Creek to the mouth of Sun River. There is now at the latter point 125,000 feet which is being drawn into Benton at the rate of about 6,000 feet daily. Mr. Holter experien e ces great difficulty in finding sufficient trans 1 portation, but be now states that he has com pleted arrangements whereby he will supply the market. The mill on Stickney creek r will produce 10,000 feet per day and is prob I ably the best appointed of any in the Terri- I tory. It is of the latest improved circu l- ar pattern. Mr. Ells will attend to the busi ness of the mill and the shipping of lumber while a gentleman will be sent here to man age the yard. We would warn our readers to beware of the itenerant peddler. He is abroad in the land, and will hunt you up, and endeavor to sell you anything from a paper of pins to a mountain howitzer. The most profitable method of dealing with them is to grasp one gently but firmly by the nape of the neck, apply a No. 10 boot to the lower part his spinal column, and intimate in forcible language that if he is seen in the vicinity again you will sweep the streets with him. Our exchanges, both Eastern and Territorial, are constantly exposing this class of thieves, who resort to every subterfuge to systemati cally bilk their victims. It is much cheaper and safer to make your purchases of good, reliable home business houses than to encour age, by your patronage, the existence of these fiends. The .rew .North- West announces the resig nation of Col. W. W. Botkin as warden of the U. S. Penitentiary, at Deer Lodge, and publishes the correspondence relating there to, which is highly complimentary to the re tiring officer. Colonel Botkin has been in charge of the penitentiary for the last three years, and his administration has been one of marked efficiency and economy. Humane, s yet firm, in his treatment of the prisoners, C courteous and pleasant to those with whom s he has been brought in contact-in his offi- o cial capacity and socially-he has gained the respect of the prisoners and the esteem and 8 friendship of the citizens. Col. Bo:kin is a t partner in the drug house of Shanley & Co., Butte, and will devote his attention to his ' business interests in the future. His succes- tl sor will most probably be Mr. Hugh O'Neil, an old Montanian, at present a guard in the 8 penitentiary, and who is well fitted for the a position.

A. Foss, the superintendent of the our llendenin Smelter Company, came up on the wh Rose Bud, and expresses himself pleased ano with the outlook of Benton, and confldent ala f the future of the Barker district and the line e new enterprise with which he is connected. H. He believes that, making the utmost of al f lowance for the sanguine statements and be e liefs of the miners, that there is ample value f in the ore to justify expectations of success. --Among the passengers on the Benton were Mr. J. Collins and wife, from Logans port, Ind. Mr. Collins is a brother of T. E. Collins, Esq., of the Bank of Northern Mon tana, and was, until recently, editor and part proprietor of the Logansport PJharos. We understand that it is his intention to locate permanently in the Territory, and hope that we may have the pleasure of knowing that he will fix on Benton. We would be glad to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Collins to a home among us. Fourth of July Celebration. We hope the Bentonites and those re siding within the reach of her guns, will take a day off and assist to make it one of success and pleasure. The day will be opened with a salute of 38 guns at sunrise, and at 9 o'clock in the services of the day willibe fairly opened by a procession which will form on Main Street opposite the RIVER PREss office, and will present as much of spectcular effect as the Territory can afford. It will pass down Main to Front street, up Front to Rondi, up Hondi to Franklin, down Franklin to St. John, down St. John to Main and up Main to the Court House. Here there will be prayer by the chaplain, reading of the Declaration of In dependence by Judge Tattan, music, an oration by Mr. William Hunt, music, sing ing, and playing of National airs by the Assinaboine and Ft. Shaw bands. In the afternoon, races will be held on the race grounds and three purses of $50 to the first horses, and $15 to the second horses will be given, entrance fee to be added to the purse. Three horses will contest each purse and the races run by rules. Entries made on the day of the race. Committee on races are A. P. Samples, James McDevitt and Howell Harris. The day will be closed by a display of fire works and music. The New Hiotel. A meeting of prominent business men was held one evening last week, at which a joint stock company was formed for the purpose of erecting a new hotel. The company have secured the ground on the southwest corner of Mair and St. John street, having a front age of about 125 feet, and will erect a build ing with at least 100 feet front, and going all the way back to the alley, 120 feet. Work will be commenced very soon. These are all the particulars we are able to give at present. 1W. G. Conrad is president, and W. H. Todd secretary of the new company; the directors are John W. Power, T. E. Collins, W. S. Wetzel, Julius Hirshberg, Henry Klein, and Louis Heitman (for Kleinschmidt & Bro.). About $10,000 more is required before we can say with certainty that the work will be forwarded. Let every one assist to the ex tent of his ability. Leser From the Belmont District. b ARYSV1LLE, June 22, 1881. To the River Press: There have been so many pen and ink sketches of our town and camp, of late, that there is but little in regard to either town or mines about it to be written. Nothing exag gerated has appeared in either of the Helena papers, either in regard to the mines or the prosperity of our district. Everybody here seems contented, satisfied and happy. There is no rush in any direction, but a steady in crease, constantly, of population and in the working force upon the different mines. At the head of the list the Drum Lomond proves itself better with each day's develop ment. Some of the best informed men tell me it is the best mine in the world, and that if it was not its owner could not pan out the bullion that pours out of his little five stamp mill. He seems to be one of the few level headed, lucky ones. In every outward sense he is the same Tom Cruse we have always I known. He attends as closely to the details of his mining and milling as if he was under a stringent contract with the Drum Lomond to see mat none of its interests were neglect ed, and it. would be a difficult matter for any stranger to recognize him as the owner or I the best mine in the Territory, or see any difference between him and any one of a C dozen men employed about the mine and mill. He has been a patient, persevering prospector, and merits the great reward he C has in hand. The Belmont mine runs about as usual, and can bo classed among the paying mines. The ore is not high grade, but regular in its ore paying, as the monthly returns from the mill I for the year past proves. L The Gloster is receiving much attention, L and improves in its yield steadily. Some of the nicest work in timbering to be seen any where is in this mine. The Blue Bird and Albion are doing well, and Ed. McCrea's new strike, near the Glos ter, promises most favorably. The Whippo will mill is pounding away, and I am told the uine looks as well as at any time in its his tory. There are about 300 men employed in the listrict. Everybody gets paid for what is F lone0 and there is less complaint among all - classes than in any mining camp I have ever been in on the score of nothing to do. There ire a few idle men, but they are so because hey wish to be. Business men seem to be he troubled to keep supplied, and consequently hey have nothing to make a fuss about, ex- o Sept their freighters, who admit the grass is h rood enough to keep their stock fat without 8' he expense of buying oats. There is much prospecting going on, and rardly a day passes without bringing the us ial supply of hand quartz mines prominent y to the fore, each one certain to make the ortunes of its prospector. Marysville is growing in log cabins all Lround the margin of Jimmy's Flat, which lat is covered by a placer mining patent Iwned by the owner of the Drum Lomond, ipon which he grants the right to build for he consideration of $75 for a lot with a rontage of fifty feet. The recent arrivals in Benton show that 3 ur business men think the route the route by rhich to ship their freight. In the course of nother year this district is certain to become large contributor to Benton's interest in this re. EXIT. Ic The Barker Mininig Distrlce. This district has the past few months e shown a marked advancement, not only in the development of old discoveries, but also 1 in the finding of new lodes. The last have not only been found in the old stamping ground of Galena creek,,but in the new fields t situated on Dry Creek, and near main Belt creek. Among the discoveries on Galena t creek, which were new to me, may be men tioned the Lend lode, which has consider able output of galena every day. The Buck eye of Charles Mix & Co., iS putting out ore rapidly from the tunnel ; the Clangle Grai of B. S. Fitzpatrick, is also showing up good. The Yreka and Fairview lodes, of Messrs. Halferty & Beckley l: redict a brilliant future to their owners. On Dry Fork, Messrs. Burns & Co. have developed a valuabile mine called Ivanhoe, and in this neighborhood over thir.y new lodes are located. Valuable new discoveries are reported near main Belt creek by Messrs. O'Kernan & Co. One lode is said to bear four feet of solid galena. On the head of Surprise creek, the Morn ing Star belonging to Jo. M1ee, is showuig up large by new developments. The Nortn ern Light, Deadwood, and Lula are promis ing their owners immense fortunes. Among the developments on Galena creek there may be prominently mentioned several lodes. The pioneer mine, Barker, holds its own, and proves by development to be a true fiksure vein; with an enormous amount of galena in sight. The Wright and Edwards with great ease could by putting on extra men give a smelter a great game trying to get away with its ore produce. The bUlver Bell is having considerable work done on it, and large bodies of ore are now in sight. The owners, Messrs. Clark and Foster are to be congratulated on their good fortune. The Benton is increasing in size, and amount of ore, as the work is continued on her, and is beyond a doubt a valuable lode. The gulch is rapidly assuming the appear ance of a city, by the erection of new houses and piom~ises to be a town almost three miles in length. Smelter is all the talk. When that is built there will be a boom. 1 went up town last Sunday, talked with twenty nine men and twenly-Whiee talked rsmelter to) me. Certainly it is urgently needed for ad vancement of the camp. Captain Kilaly has now a first-class store in full operation, and gratuitously gives the inhabitants the benefits of a post office. Now, Mr. RIVER P&Yss, there is a thing that wants rustling up and that is a mail route for this district. How is it that a district with now over 400 tmen in. it, most of them requiring,by possession of min ing property, constant communication with the county seat, should be left to the gener osity of travellers for their mail. Captain Jack has the esteem, and deserves the thanks of the community for his courtesy in this respect. Baron Foley I found ore block below, in a very neat house, and the largest stock of goods in his line yet brought into the camp. He still has trouble getting around fast, on account of the severe sprains he received last winter. Nick Welsh I found suffering from his old complaint-rheuma tism. After enjoying the hospitality of Joe Lessard, I proceeded down the gulch on my homeward trip. Being compelled to brief this communication by loss of notes you shall have more ANON. -- -, .,a .,,-i.. * -- THE CHURCHES.
