Courier: Several gold prospects have been found near this city, but the gold is scaly, some of it very beautiful and resem bling in shape particles of bran. The re sult is that in washing the gravel the flakes of gold ride the water instead of sinking as j »articles of gold of any other shape al ways do. Finding quicksilver a failuie here, the Parlor Mining Company putin a sluice-box with copper bottom, such as is successfully used on Snake River, Idaho, but even with this appliance, which, by the use of. elec trie it;, attract > the gold t the copper and holds it there, the gold could no* be secured. Theie is a chance for some man to make an independent for tune by the invention of an appliance that will save gold of this character.

The National Wool-Growers' Associa tion closed its session by preparing and adopting an address to the wool-growers of the whole country, appealing them to use their utmost endeavors to rescue the industry- from its present depressed condi tion by obtaining the restoration of the protection tariff of 1867, and to that end to use their votes and their influence only for the election of such legislators as arc pledged to obtain the redress. Northern Pacific Forfeiture. Mr. Cobb, chairman of the house committee of public lands hopes to get a vote in a few days on his bill declar ing forfeited all Northern Pacific lands west of the Missouri. He also hopes and expects to see it pass, though there will be a hard fight against it in the house. Others equally as well posted on the matter as Air. Cobb can be, say the bill will not pass the house even if it is taken up (which is doubt* ful) and that it has no show whatever in the senate. The forfeiture bill, as drafted, permits purchasers of rail road lands prior to the beginning of 1884 to hold 160 acres of such land upon making proof of bona fide pur chase prior to the date specified, be fore the district land office; it also provides that bona fide settlers upon railroad lands, who have improved the same with intent to settle and secure title from the railroad shall be entitled to pre-empt or homestead 160 acres of such kind.

Northern Pacific statistics show that during the shipping season of 1883 there were 1,776 car loads of beef cat tie shipped over the line from points in the Yellowstone valley between McLellan station and Livingston. Of this number 580 car loads went from the Allies City stock yards. Eastern Montana stockmen, in estimating this year's shipments, put the number much higher than that of last year, and the lowest estimate given is 2,300 car loads, or about 46.000 head. The largest shippers will be Hughes & Simpson, who alone will send to Chi cago markets 1,400 head. A decided improvement over the old style of stock cars is a suspension truck car with air brake attachments, which the Northern Pacific company are now putting in use, and it will be but a short time before the old style of stock cars shall have gone out of use entirely, and stockmen will be accommodated with none but this make 'of cars, in which cattle are never bruised up and generally arrive at the Markets in less time and be.tter condition than under the old manner of shipping.
