A FO I IT .EEN E PIMRE, An Ancient Rival of Egypt Unearthed in the Forests of Asia Minor-Nothing Nw Under. the Sun, [A. I, Sayce, in Frazer's Magazine.] CURIOUS OOTNTRY. It was a warm sunny morning towards the end of September when I left the little town of Nimphi under the protection of an escort of soldiers, and, set out for the once . rtile district of Ephesus, near where is. a place called by the Turks Kar A-su, or Black For est, which conceals some of the most curious and interesting monuments in the world, monuments that take us back to a long for gotten day, when as yet the Greeks were destitute of culture and art. Gyges had. not founded his dynasty hard by at Sardes, or Kroesus ruled over the Lydian empire. They have risen up from the dead, as it were, during the last two years to tell us of a power which had its seat far away on the banks of the Fuphrates, but which carried its armies to the very shores of the /Egean Sea and he!ped the Phoenicians in commun nicating t=; the...

TIHE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, October 27, 1880. * WE present to our readers this week a pa per which in typographical execution and general appearance is the equal of any in the Wdst, and we have endeavored to make its columns interesting by presenting a class of matter so diversified and original as will please all tastes. Our local record is full and complete, while in our editorial com ments we have been fair and impartial. As a whole we feel that we can safely rest on what we believe will be public approval and appreciation of our eff.its, and we will leave with it the criticism of our acts, with the knowledge thait it will be at the same time just and lenient. We deem it necessary, in this initial number, to define ourselves per sonally, and the special part each of us will take in conductinfg this paper: Mr. H. C. Williams will act as editor, and will be res ponsible for all its utterances and its general editorial make up. He has been in the Ter ritory but little over a year, ...

TAILINGS. Slavery is simply cheap labor, and cheap labor is simply slavery. Salt Lake has become a great point for the negotiation and selling of Montana, Idaho and Nevada Mines. The black " tarpaulin" hat of the British navy has given away before the progressive tendencies of the age. The sons of Gotham still retain their en thui:ism for that interesting relic of the Son of the Sun-the obelisk. The greenbackers say that congressional committees have a veto power greater than that of the President. And they know. The government of this country is a cor porate feudalism- Greenback Platform. This is true enough, but the idea needs amplifica tion. Lord Beaconsfield is sounding the "first notes of alarm, " over the struggle between the radicals and "demagogues" and the House of Lords. It is not generally known that if a one dollar greenback is neatly cut in two, each of the parts is good for fifty cents at the Federal Treasury. The intrinsic value of the 5 cent nickel is but a cent and ...

A PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, Editorial Etchings of Montana's Delectable Valley of Sun River-Pastoral Pastime Among its People. With nothing to do but wait for freighters, who were bringing with certain slowness type and material for this paper, it occurred to us that our time could be employed with profit and pleasure by vistting the district of Sun River and making the acquaintance of its genial people. Happy thought! and straightway to Sun River we went as fast as that useful old relic of past time-the stage could carry us. Some one has said that each inhabitant of this planet, during a lifetime of three-score and ten years, cats his peck of dirt. But we'will aver that passengers on the Benton and Helena road consume that amount in ten hours. Passing time equally in social converse with Major Maginnis and swallowing potions of our virgin soil, we at last and long after dark reached the gem of the valley, Sun River Crossing, penetrated to the marrow with the searching chill of the autumn ...

THE MARRIAGE RELATION. The Sacred Institution in its Legal Rela tions.-Laws and Customs of Various Nations in Various Ages, [Chicago Times.] The old law was lhat the husband and wife were one, and the husband was that one; but now, some writer has wittily observed, the husband and wife are two, and the wife is both of them. The question of the rights of married woman has been discussed in a his torical and philosophical manner by a writer in the last number of Appleton's Journal, and some of his facts and arguments are worthy of thought. The laws upon the relations of the husband and wife which prevail in the United States to-day were obtained from the English com mon law, but the history of those relations is interesting. Long before the Norman con quest the Anglo-Saxons had marital customs differing from the ones which now prevail among us. The woman was regarded with great res pect, and not as an inferior creation. The wife was allowed great personal liberty, and accompanied and ...
