The terms are $5 per three months, in advance. L H. BOWMAN & Co. Idaho City, June 29, 1867. City and County, —— Greenbacks. —Andrews & Co., on Wall street, next to Masonic Hall, have greenbacks for sale. Stripping Machine.— The apparatus for stripping mining claims, of which M. T. Brady advertises him self as the inventor, was rigged up in front of L. M. Cohn's and Vantine k Co.'s stores on Main street, last Sunday, and remains there still. It has not yet been practically tested, but the general impression among miners is unfavorable to the machine. It consists of a large central " crab" or upright wind lass, which is to be turned by the application of horse, water or steam power. The hawser from this passes around two other, smaller, upright windlasses, placed at equal distance on each side of the main windlass, and each end of the rope is made fast to long low dirt car, with sides hinged at the top so as to let the earth dump from the floor of the car as it is tipped either to the right or the left. The car is placed on a gear which rocks lengthwise, and it runs upon small low car wheels, which require a railway track to be laid for them. As the main windlass turns, ' the full car ascends and the empty car is returned to the stripping ground, where the miners fill it by or dinary shoveling process. A fair trial has not been given Mr. Brady's model where it stands, but we con fess that it is difficult to see just where the claimed labor-saving operation of the machine, over the pres ent hand-barrow process, comes in. New Miking Machine.—W e saw in front of John Harrington's saloon, on Main street, a few days ago, the miniature model of a machine, which, we were told, was invented by a miner named Emerson, who works near thi" city, and is calculated to effect change in the process of ground sluicing. The prin ciple may be thus described : The sluice boxes lead to an endless revolving chain, to which strong metal scooping cups are fastened, similar in kind to the elevators in a flouring mill, which take the refuse dirt and deposit it in a sharp sloping great sluice box, which is rigged to move from side to side, so as to equalize the dumping heaps. A Chinese wheel drives the endless chain shaft, and the water from the wheel is thrown back, as its force is used, into the sluice boxes, thus effecting an economy in water. We heard some miners who had given the model a close exam idation express rather favorable opinions of it. New Stage Arrangement —By advertisement in this issue readers will see that a new arrangement has been made in the stage lines of Idaho. The line between this city and Boise City is now owned by Mr. Henry Greathouse alone. Mr. Greathouse is in town, and informs us that hereafter, from this day, the fare will be only six dollars. He has two new fine coaches on the way, and intends to put on fresh, good horses—six-horse and four-horse teams—over the road, so as to ride passengers every foot of the way, <w*d not call upon them to walk up the steep grades or high hills. He intends to run the route in tip-top staging style, and hejwill do it. We hail the change thus made, and the full line from here to the Colum bia river will be better patronized in future by our people than it was under the old Company. Acquitted. —In the case of Jerry Fitzgerald, mi ner, indicted for creating a nuisance, in digging up Main street, for mining purposes, the jury returned a verdict of not guûty. The case was one of much pjlblîc interest, as it was really the test suit for other cases pending, and was to settle a matter of much importance to miners who own claims in the ..c!iy, and to property holders whose premises are af fected by miners. Ainslie & Foote, Esqs., were counsel for the mining party, and very ably managed .their case. ■ - • ....., ... V-i- « * : Another Meteor. —On Monday night, between 9 and 10 o'clock, a large, brilliant meteor shot out from the heavens in the northwest and coursed towards the southeast. In a twinkling it separated into many parts, like the bursting of a grand rocket, and in a little while all had disappeared. It was not so large as the meteor seen on Wednesday night of last week, but it was scarcely less sublime and beautiful to the view. Tax Collection.— Frank B. Britten has paid into ■the County Treasury the sum of about $12,000, col* looted for taxes during the month of July—the largest ' sum ever paid into the Treasury of Boise county for taxes in any one month. This shows as well the growing wealth of the county as the assiduity of Collector Britten and his able Deputies. His office is condudtod in thorough manner. The Rich Ledoe.—F rom Mr. Wm. Lynch and others, of Placerville, we learn that the newly dis covered ledge of rotten qnartz near the Pioneer ledge continues to pay extravagantly rich all the way along .the 800 feet of stripped surface. Turner's Ball.— Don't forget to attend the grand opening ball at Turner's Warm Springs new Pavilion, this evening. Everybody nearly is going. Dryde McClintock will run his carriages there and back all the evening. mm v, S 3 il«r! -~*«D t -The Board of Equalization for Boise .county meet at the Court House on Monday next, to examine the Assessment rolls, and take cognizance 'of petîfiôÀ for correction therein. As Monday will be the day of, election, it is likely that the Board will adjourn over to the succeeding day. Miners' Drug Store.— Dr. Belknap has bought out -the Atkins Bros.' Drug Store on Wall street, and now conducts the business. He has fresh articles in his line, sells cheap, and personally puts up prescrip tions. Give him a call, "B-o-y-s." On a Visit.— Judge Rosborough left last Sunday morning for a brief visit to his old stamping ground, in Yreka, California, to be absent a few weeks. A j/üàéant journey, with good fortune and sound health, .and a welcome back to him. The Weather.— The intensely hot weather contin ues—with the thermometer marking from 100 to 107 ■.^greses dprin^midW ; but the nights are reviv ibgfÿ coôi; splendid for good rest and sound sleep.
