THE RIVER PRESS. -__ The Ge3. Steell & Co. Aflair. Tke attachment of Geo. Steell & Co., it seems, wa's not instituted by the Montana National Bank, as at first re ported, but by Phil A. Manix, for the sum of $6,000-he having endorsed a note for Geo. Steell to that amount. Manix paid the note at Helena, and the Nontana National, suspecting that something was wrong, sent their assist ant cashier to Sun River to take posses sion of the store. The latter arrived first, but the sheriff soon came along and levied the attachment for $6,000. It is now a contest between the bank and Manix. as to which is entitled to posses sion, and the opinion seems to be-back ed by that of Warren Toole-that Manix has the best of it. In this event the Fort Benton creditors who levied at tachments are fully secured. These events were entirely unexpect ed by Mr. Steell, and are so much the harder to stand up under. He has the sympathy of everybody in this section in this misfortune, and we trust he wi...

A NEW YORK journalist is reported to haye made an assignment, having $32,500 worth of liabilities and $2,700 of actual assets.

Australian Wool F'arming. The great staule of Australia, fertile as the island continent is in most natural Oultivated productions, is wool. The millions of acres which the farmer can not make productive, bring wealth to the grazier. Previous to the gold discoveries, thirty odd years ago, Australia was essentially a pastoral country, and since the gold fever has become a thing of the past the farmer has supplanted the miner again. Some of the greatest of the vast for tunes won by wool growing, originated in the mining excitement. Farmers and graziers abandoned their farms to look for swift wealth in the diggings, and wise men bought them in and thus laid the foundations of permanent pros perity. The writer met one sheep king in Queensland, who, in 1852, was a laborer on a farm. The owner caught the gold fever, and his hired man bought him out with his savings. As one farm er after another in the district succum bed to the craze, the long-headed laborer borrowed and scraped together ...
