Treas ure Stage. — The following particulars of the late robbery of Wells' Fargo & Co.'s stage are taken from the Yirgina Union of October 31st: called upon to chronicle one of those daring highway robberies peculiar to the land of sagebrush. This morning be tween one and two o'clock, as the Pioneer Stage Company's coaches wero assending the Geiger grade, about four miles from this city, the driver was commanded to halt by five persons, who stepped from their places of concealment with double-barreled shot Again we guns, at the same presenting them in such a way that the driver came to a halt without asking any question. The stage having stop ped, the robbers invited the passengers (fourteeu in all) to vacate their seats, as they "wanted Wells' Fargo & Co.'s treasure." The passengers-were all removed from the stage and the driver obeyed orders to have the horses unhitched preparatory to blowing open the treasure box, which under the front seat. The horses and pasen gers being removed some distance from the coaches, a quantity of powder was worked into the keyhole of the iron safe, the fuse lighted and the explosion took place, tearing the safe and coach almost in pieces. The rob bers immediately took possession of the let ters, packages and 85TÖ0 which was in the in the stage safe. They then arranged all tho passengers in line and "went through them," taking what small change, gold watches, etc., that they had about them their persons. The rob bers then assisted the driver to hitch up the horses, and bidding the passengers good-by, disappeared in the darkness, every attempt to recognize any of the robbers failed, owing to their faces being blacked and covered with cloth, with, small holes cut for their eyes. The stages arrived in this city about three o'clock this morning, the treasure stage hav ing been so badly blown to pieces that it scarcely hung together. The passengers were brought into town in the second stage which was not damaged at all. As soon as the stages arrived a posse of citizens imme diately started for the scene of tho robbery» but found nothing but a few pieces of the stage lying around tho spot. No traces of the robbers have not been discovered us yet J. F. Calderwood, one of the passengers^ saved 8400 by throwing it on top of the stage before the robbers searched him. Judge Baldwin, who was one of tho passengers, had his watch and 860 taken. The other pass engers all lost something except one lady, whom the robbers did not molest. It was one of the boldest and most successful stage robberies ever planned and executed on the Pacific coast. The Gold Hill News says the amount tak en from the passengers will amouut to sev eral thousand dollars. The Gila River. —Several Colorado miners now in town are going to Santa Fe to join the great expedition to the placers of the Gila river, in Arizona_ one of them we learn that the com pany will start for Santa Fe about the first of January next, and that they will number in all from 500 to 600 persons. Many adventurers from St. Lonis and Leavenworth have already reached San ta Fe. Prospectors who have sent out by tho promoters report having found dig gings that will pay from one to three doll ars to the pan from the grass roots down. It has beeu long an ascertained fact that paying diggings and its tributaries, but owing to the dan ! bï found on the Gila ger^of attacks from the Apache Indians, miners have never been able to stay there. The company who are now striving to peo ple these almost unknown regions with hardy and adventurous gold miners will be well armed and strong enough to repel any attempts to drive them from the country. The California papers state, that from what they havs herd of this part of Arizona from miners aud others, the diggings can only be worked by large companies, os ditchest will have to be made, or tramways built to convey the pay dirt to where there is water. The distance from Sante Fe to the Gila is said to bo about 400 miles, and it is templated to provide escort to keep the road open for the last two hundred miles of this distance.—[Denver News. It is now twelve o' clock and all is well, no stars falling yet, must be a humbug. Important Movement ol State Arms.. UNCLE SAM TAKES CHARGE OP THEM. The attention of persons on Main street was attracted about nine o'clock on the 2d ult., says the St, Louis Dis patch, to the marching of a squad of po licemen along that street to the building occupied as a State Storehouse, northeast corner of Main an Morgan streets, where a large number of stand of arms were known to be stored, and whence a lot of arms were secretly shipped at midnight, a few weeks ago, to the interior. After a while six or eight U. S. blue wagons repared to the spot, and the teamsters commenced to load the boxes of arms in the store, into their wagons : As each wagon received its load, it was driven with an escort of policemen to the U. S Arsenal below the city. The process continued till every box of arms in the storeheuse had been carried off, leaving the place as empty and harmless as any other vacaut floor. A good deal of worn derment and many vague and wild con jectures were elicited by the quiet and orderly movement. The true explanation of it, as far as " have ascertained, is this : The arms were removed by an order from the De partment Headquarters, and transfered to the Arsenal, where they will.be safely kept by Gen. Callender, who will see that they do not get into the hands of persons hostile to the United States Government, to be used against that Gov ernment and its friends. It is said that the boxes had been carefully and secret ly prepared for shipment to various points in the interior—for what purpose Gov. Fletcher and his friends, no doubt, could tell if they would. The places of their destination had been marked on them; but when the officer at the storehouse heard that the U. S. wagons were_ ing after them, he had the marks hastily scratched off. Why he did this is a question which people wiU find much difficulty in answering. The presence of the police on the ground is accounted for by the fact that they had beeu requested by tho U. S. au thorics to attend, to protect the teams ters from possible disturbance. Adju tant General Simpson came to the place while the removal was going on, and while he seemed to be wondering what business Uncle Sam had to seize Gov. Fletcher's guns, it was not observed that he proposed to do anythiNg to prevent it. It was reported that the arms really belonged to the United States Govern ment, and that the State had been re quested before this to turn them over; and having neglected to do so, this meth od had beed adopted to get them back.

A Herald's Leavenworth, special says the Denver News publishes the following extract from a private letter to Capt Coch ran: We learn that Mr. Weston, editor of the Salt Lake Union Yidette, was taken by tho Mormons, on the night of the 3d inst., and severly beaten, and given six hours to leave the city and take with him several prominent gentiles. Mr. Weston refuses to leave, and denounces Mormon ism in the bitterest terms. From the Mormons on Gentiles, serious trouble may be looked for. Thankbgiaing Proclamation— The President has issued a proclamation recommending that Thursday, tho 29th of November, be observed as a day of thanksgiving and praise to God for all his mercies aud benifits; and also recom mending that the peoplo humbly and de. voutly implore Him to grant to our na tional councel and the whole population that divine wisdom which alone can lead the nation into the ways of all good. UEAL'llEG.VttD AND GRANT—A MEET ING BETWEEN THE TWO GENERALS. A correspondent of the Louisville Democrat, writing from New York, saysf Gen Beauregard is in town. He is stopping at the New York Hotel, which is, as it has been for years past the great Southern rendezvous in Gotham. The General came passenger from Europe in Ville de Paris, which arrived from Brest. He is in excellent health and iu fine spirits, as well he may be, seeing that his mission to London and Paris, in con nection with his Louisiana and Mississip pi enterprise, was a success far beyond his most sanguine expectations. He not only received all the credit he asked for. but was pressed to accept double treble the amount. By this time, at least one ship freighted with railroad iron is on the way from Liverpool to New Or leans, and others will quickly follow. Gen. Beauregard is not much of a talk but he speaks in glowing terms of the kindness and hospitality which cry where greeted him among the great merchant and money kings of England and France. Thus encouraged he re. turns to his own country determined to do all in his power to resuscitate the in dustrial interests of his native State, prostrated by the relentless hand of war, and in this we can bid him, with a clear conscience, the fullest measure of success. He leaves for New Orleans in the steam er of to-day. Yesterday he took a drive out to Central Park, and it is noted, a curious incident that while he was dash ing along in one direction, Gen. Grant (who is also in town) was dashing along in another. It is superfluous to add that the courtesies which gentlemen ually exchange under these circumstances were scrupulously observed. This is as it should be. In grasping hands on this occasion these two great soldiers felt if they were enemies in war they could be in peace friends. , No two living men have better common reason to respect each other; and to experience in all its fulness what the poet calls, joy which worriors feel ur *°g ev as us "That In focman worthy of their steel." Now, why cannot the noisy blather skites who are bent on keepiug up the old feud between the two sactions imi tate the noble example thus set them by these two great representative men of the North and South ? If the men who did all the hard hand to hand fighting du ring the war can thus shake hands and, forgetting the past meet upon terms of perfeot equality, surely tho fellows who staid at home to dodge the draft, aud grow rich from shoddy coutraots, can have no reason to hold back. Apology. —On account of our hurry to get out the first issue of the Bullion to-day, we have been unable to obtain the general statistics cf the Owyhee mines, also many local and interesting items. In the future we will try and give all local matter, as well as all matter of interest from other parts. Salt Lake, Ootobcr24.—The line is again interrupted by Indians, 18 miles east of Julesburg; 100 mules and 100 head of cattle were lately run off, man was killed and two wouned. A de tachment of cavalry pursued the Indians and recaptured half of the stock. Some of the lodians were killed, and sseveral wigwams captured. The Richmond 'Examiner' invites Northern emigration in :jhe following terms: "Gentlemen of the north, we ex tend to you a cordial welcome, so you bring thrift^industry, honesty and,green backs - And if you will only leave your conscences behind, nothing will molest you from the Potomac to the Rio Grand." Mrs Elizabeth Cady Stanton has recent ly announced herself as an Independent candidate for Congress in the eight dis trict of New York. Hope she will not be elected. Too many old woman in Con gress already. Niagara Falls.—A n enthusiastic old follow and his wife recently visted Niagara Falls. They worshiped the falls all day from the pazza in front of their room, and retired talking about its wou ders. Next morning as soon as he saw falls again he sang out: "Wife, wife !
