TOLD BY THE SUTTERER. A Story of a Pilgrim's Experience in Mon tana, and His Complaints. They call me Broncho-rider, Cow Boy, etc. For a while after I came to Montana they called me Pilgrim, but my real name is John Thorn. I was born on the eastern shores of Maine, where I resided until I came to Mon tana. I had read Horace Greeley's "Go West young man" and Strahorn's "New West, and coming upon a copy of the Helena Ilerald's holiday number, I selected Montana for my future home. The next question was how to get there. I was but twenty years old and had an aged mother and a sister depending upon me for their support, and I had no money. Mr. Church, who had .formerly been a neighbor of ours, had been in Mon tana about twelve years and had accumulated quite a fortune in the cattle business. I wrote to him asking about the country, wages, etc., and asking him what chance there would be for a young man who had no capital. In due course of time I received a reply from him, stating that Mo...

IN A CHRISTiMAS LETTER. We are close together Though you are far away, God bless my darling and keep her safe, I whisper when I pray; Dear friend, we are each others now, And it is Christmas day. The sun will shine in your face and mine, And the wind will bring me word, And you and I will know all day That our hearts are strang.ely stirred Just now I almost saw your face, And when you spoke I heard. On Christmas Day, in the morning, My dear, I thought of you, And I said, I have no better gift Than a friend so dear and true; A love that is mine to the end of time, And will last my whole life through. The Life of a Printer. Printers are unlike other classes of men. Their vocation imparts to them an intelli gence that does not result from any other business. Dealing with languages exclusive ly, in combination of letters, sentences iand paragraphs, they are constantly brought into communion with thoughts and their work ings, and these insensibly become imbued with the ideas of those min...

WAR PICTURES. Archibald Forbes' Description ofPlevna and Isandula. From the Lecture of Mr. Forbes. As an example of the eloquent terms in de scription into which Mr.: Forbes often and naturally, falls, the concluding remarks re garding the campaign which contained the battle of Plevna as a leading feature are given again in the exact words of the speaker: "Plevna lay down yonder in its snug val ley among the foliage, calm and serene, like a sleeping babe amid a pack of raging wolves the sunlight glinting on the spires of its church towers. Behind us the Russian can non belchiag fire and iron. Close to us the feneral, with set face and :terribly eager eyes, the working of his lips and fingers belieing his forced composure. And at our feet hell itself, raging in all its lurid splendor, and its fell horror. A chaos of noises came back to us on the light summer winds-the crackle of the musketry fire, the ping of bullets, the crash of exploding shells, loud shouts of men bent on death or...

THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, Janua-ry 23, 1881. -H. . WILLIAMS, - . . ..-- -. EDITOR OuR dispatches indicate that half a dozen more officers were placed on the retired list by the president on Saturday. GENERAL WALKER sent to the House the complete census returns of the whole coun try. The census of the States shows a pop ulation of 49,269,595, and the Territories 783,271, making a grand total of 50,152,866. THE Grant people do not draw much sym pathy from political situation. Don Cameron has left the Stalwart gang, and is leaning to ward the Ohio people in a way not to be mistaken. It would not be a matter of very much surprise if Donald should have the treasury portfolio thrown at him. lr people will examine the Quien Sabe col umn of the Rirvm PRESS of two week's since, and compare the paragraph therein mentioned of the Kecora a editorial thunder, they will find a similarity which is one of the most striking coincidences of parallelism in hu man thought they ever saw.

DIAGRAM MAp -OF T I-I4.N., Showing the Location and Direction of Various Lodes, D RAWN BY COL. CLENDENIN, JR. Lend. .adrbl *\1 4-9~ THE RINES. A Birdseye View of the Condition and Prospects of the Camp. The above diagram of a few of the princi pal leads in Galena gulch, while it is not specifically correct, is a reasonable approxi mation of their relative locations and general direction. It is constructed after a drawing by Col. Clendennin, and is as accurate as can be obtained until a survey can be made in the spring. But the object of this diagram at this time is more to show the worth of the camp and somewhat of the extent of the field which next season's operations will cer tainly develop, than in the exactness of lo cations which themselves have not yet been accurately determined, and will not be until the opening of Spring. The Barker district, of which the above diagram represents only a very small portion, being merely the cluster around the original discovery, on which ther...

THE PHANTOM FLEET. A cold wind chilled us as we paced the deck, One summer night upon a summer sea; A nameless fear crept over us of wreck, Of rocks unseen, of breakers on the lee. "Icebergs!" From lip to lip the whisper passed; We huddled close, our pulses scarcely beat, As, bending slow before the freshening blast, Bore down the Phantom Fleet. First, shadowy and pale, like spectral ships, Along the deep in solemn ranks they came; And then the moonlight broke along their tips And clothed their cold peaks with resplehdent flame, Green, beryl, blue, and many an opal gleam O'er the huge crystals of the sea were cast; Their fearful beauty held us like a dream As one by one they passed. The last one came so close along our side We almost brushed it with our swinging spars ; We hardly breathed as o'er the heaving tide. It bore away beneath the silent stars; And then, as spire by spire, and tip by tip We watched the monsters in the distance fade, Our deep suspense sprang, quivering to the...

STALWART FICTIONS. A Discussion of Issues Within the Repub lican Party. [The American] it was under Mr. Hayes that one section of the Republican party began to define itself as stalwart. In the time of introducing a more tolerant policy toward the South, some very pronounced Republicans felt themselves alienated from sympathy, and were anxious that he should pursue a more vigorous policy in defence of the colored voters. In the cir cumstances, this sort of dissent was legiti mate enough, and the public began to distrust it only when they found it so much associa ted with strong convictions about the distrib ution of offices in the North. When Mr. Hayes refused to place the official patronage of certain Northern States at the disposal of certain Republican Congressman of those States, it was found that a great deal of in dignation about those offices cloaked iteelf in the garb of dissent from the President's Southern policy. Personal loyalty to such leaders as Messrs. Butler, Conklin...

A KISS. I had met her at the ball, and her feet Had twinkled together in the busy maze Of the waltz ; I had whirligigged around Her airily in The "Boston," and Capered nimbly in front of her in the jig Of square dances, until I was in love, And, loving, longed to taste the ambrosial Sweets of her lips-yes, as a humming bird, To there manipulate honey without The shadow of foul suspicion. One eve, In the dewy stillness, I spied her fair Form leaning languidly on her father's Gate. I approached, and timidly slipped My arm lovingly about her waist. She sighed Not-sweet girls !-but spasmodically dropped Her head, face upward, on my shoulder. I went For those lips, and touching with mine, she hove A sigh which blasted my love and knocked the Kiss into non-forgetfulnese. She had Been eating onions ! H.istorical Itlepetltion.

~_.......... .- - _- -- .t PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. A city of London official estiJ~mtes the gross annual income of the city's charities al $22,500,000. One of the prejudices of M.

It takes about $2,500,000 to pay the annual expenses of the 20,000 hounds which are said to be owned in Great Britain.

THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, February 2, 1881. R C. WILLIAMS, ... - - - EDITOR A PARTY of capitalists in Chicago have offered, it is said, to construct a telegraph line from Chicago to New York. CABINET making in Washington circles continues with unabated energy and the same uncertainty. The slate still shows a predom inance of Blaine influence, but further than that nothing can be forecasted. -- i THE snow-bound mails prevent the mak ing of much territorial news, and, in fact news of any kind. So we are driven to first principles, and content ourselves with pre senting matter of general interest and partic ular unfitness. THERE is reason for general and natural encouragement in the situation as at present indicated, and with the warm breath of the Pacific wind, and the disappearance of the snow, we may expect to see the gloomy for bodings give place to a more hopeful view of a, situation which has not at any time been hopeless. _ I THE New York merchants are opposed to the new Chines...

IN THE BLAOKFOOT COUNTRY. A Reminiscence of the Editor-An Old Story Revived, with Changes Ac cording to Hoyle. [While traveling through Montana, last summer, in the capacity of correspondent, we wrote an impression of the Blackfoot region, under the inspiration of the beautiful scenery of that valley, than which there does not exist one more romantic or picturesque, and which would be more visited if better known. The sketch woven therein has a foundation in fact, which old miners will recognize, and if it is not correct we will lay the blame on the gentleman who told us the story by our camp fire. The event has about died out of memory, and no two stories of the tragic scene are alike, but all agree in the main particulars. We after wards learned that the Frenchman referred to con tessed his crime in France, where he was executed for the murder of another wife.--ED.] A gem of the Rocky Mountains is the vale of the Little Blackfoot, situate midway be tween Deer Lodge and Helena.

BETWEEN THE GREEN CORN AND THE GOLD. Between the green corn and the gold, Between the dawning and the noon, Love, that at first was pale and cold. Waxed ruddy with the summer moon; And hearts beat high, and lips grew bold, Between the green corn and the gold. The primrose, precious key of spring, Unlocked the casket of the year; The flowers flew torth on rainbow wing O'er hill and mead and mere, To woo the new year like the old. Between the green corn and the gold. Between the gold corn and the green, Between the midday and the dawn, The summer woods have lost their sheen, The flowers have withered on the lawn; And Love lies dead where Love hath been, Between the gold corn and the green. Love is not dead; he cannot die, Although his eyes be veiled with pain; The woods shall waken by and by, The flowers shall blossom once again; And we-shall we not wake, my Queen, Between the gold corn and the green ? THE EARTH AND THE SUN. Observations of Distance Made by As. tronomer Gill. Mr. Gill...

THE YEAR'S ASTROLOGY. Dire and Fearful Happenings Prophecied by Astrological Ravens. [New York Tribune] It was a long time pretty generally under derstood by people who put their trust in Mother Shipton that our planet would become a total wreck at some period during the year upon which we have so prosperously entered. Now the rolling up of the heavens like a Ecroll, the general liquefaction of matter un der fervent heat and the disorganization of the universe into a "wilderness of tempestu ous combustion" is not an event which the mass of mankind would be likely to contem plate with sereity, provided it was set down for a date certain and near at hand, say Saturday week. According to the theory of the universe proposed by Boscovich, there may be, it is true, no ultimate chaos and con flagration, but in their stead a quiet and sud den vanishing of world . If matter, as the ingenious Italian holds, does not consist of hard atoms, but is only a mode or a combi nation of modes of motio...
