Now it is safe to bet ten to one on the plumed knight. CONGRESS is making haste to get through its work so as to adjourn about the 1st of July. IT is now a matter of doubt as to whether or not the Sioux reservation bill will pass this season. OLD Ben Butler seems to be in earnest as a candidate for the presidency. His letter of acceptance is just published. IF the democrats can hazard the nom ination of a western man, it will most likely be Senator McDonald. THE forlorn democratic hosts are now placing their chief reliance on Cleve land. The Flower boom has flattened out, so to speak. THE Billings Post says that T. C.. Power, as candidate for delegate to con gress, would carry that part of the coun try with a rush. CLEVELAND, it seems, is to be the democratic victim this time. He is the choice of New York, an...

When disease takes hold of them they are so reduced by fuine that they have not strength to rally. The mortality is fearful, eigh teten d(aths occurring during the month of My.
