From the Helena (Mont.) Herald of March 21.
The bonding of the Snow Drift
(Penobscot) mine to Mr. Trent, a
gent of Messrs. Frazier & Chalmers,
of Chicago, in the sum of $300,000,
.sixty days iinjit, was announced in
these columns ten days since. Cor
respondence by wire "has passed to
iind fro until a conclusion was reach
ed in reference to the purchase of the
property, and on Thursday last Mr.
-Trent proceeded again to inspect the
mine, after which he stated his readi
ness to take possession thereof and
pay over the first installment of
75,000 deposited to his credit in the
First National Bank of Helena. The
owner of the Penobscot, Mr. Vestal,
accompanied Mr. Trent back to town
on Friday "afternoon, and after coun
seling with his attorney and trusted
friends, concluded not to make the
sale.. Mr. Trent was promptly noti- i
fied

main body increasing rather than
decreasing in richness. Nearly one
hundred and seventy pounds of gold
retort, worth 16 an ounze, is ex
hibited in the show window of'Hersh
lield-ft Bro's. Bank. This is Penob
scot product for a fortnight as far as it
has been cleaned up in the rude arast
ras and from partial scrapings in the
five stamp mill of Mr. Courtwright,
doing contract work, The mill,
cleaning up in a day or two the clog
ging amalgam, will show from 40 to
0 pounds of retort. This mill and
t)ie arastfas are kept regularly at
work, and the total gold product for
the month from the battery and tubs
will probably not fall much short of
75,000.
No such enormcus sum in a given
time, with such ridiculously small
facilities, has ever been taken from
ahy gold minein'the world!"" A gol,d
bar, in weight and value never
equalled in this or any other country,
will be cast from this collecting: trea
sure at the end of the present
nionth"s milling. The event itself,
at the time it happens will be an
nounced in the HERALD. ^i-.-yM
Yesterday, Nate Vestal came to
.town on his regular weekly trip,
bringing a chunk of Penobscot gold,
.weighing #0 pounds? and valued at
si2,000. These big returns from the
famous Penobsqot are becoming a
regular thing. A thousand dollars, ^-rp,

Lake City Leader.
One of the Lake George recipients
of ^tate aid took his seed grain to
the mill and exchanged it for flour,
under the impreesion that, as he had
wheat at home to replace it, there
would be nothing wrong in the op
eration. He was undeceived, how
ever, when he was arrested and
brought before D. McDonald,
justice of the peace, and put under
bonds.Melrose Record.
We have never seen anything like
the tide of immigration that is now
setting westward, along the proposed
line of the Hastings and Dakota
Railroad. Besides the almost con
tinuous string of emigrant wagons,
that are seen at all hours of the day,
and heard at almost all hours of the
night, every train comes in loaded
with passengers, who immediately
take .all sorts of conveyances for the
West. At the rate this thing is now
going on, there will soon not be an
acre of land between here and Big
Stone Lake that will not be taken
up by actual settlers.Glencoe Ben in
