ST. PATRICK'S DAY. How it waS Celebrated at the River Metropolis. A Banquet and Ball, With a Genuine "Feast of Reason and Flow of Soul.", -A Demonstration Highly Creditable to the Irish men of Fort Ben ton. The 17th of March, St. Patrick's day, was most appropriately observed by the Irish American citizens of Fort Benton and vicinity, and the celebration was probably the most elaborate and happiest that occurred in the territory yesterday. The determination to celebrate was not reached until two or three days before so that the arrangements were really consummated in forty-eight hours, and for such short notice they were most complete and satisfactory. The pro gramme included supper at the Grand Union hotel, with toasts and responses, singing, dancing, etc. The spacious dining room was elegantly decorated, green of course being the prevailing color, and two tables, extending the entire length of the room, groaned under the weight of "the best the market af fords." About nine o'clock...

STOCK DEPARTMENT. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] STOCK NOTES. Nelson and Adams recently sold 700 fat sheep to Helena parties for $4 per head. Three hundred of the number were delivered this week.-Sun. The Breeders' Gazette chronicles the fact that the Jersey cow, Duchess of Bloomfield, made 458 pounds and twelve ounces of butter in seven months. The governor of Arizona says that ter ritory has grass enough for five million head of cattle, but four-fifths of it is not available because of no water.

THE LOWER MISSOURI. The Ice Still Intact at Bismarck-The Rail road Preparing for Trouble-Boats in Good Shape,, Except the Little Emily, Which is Wrecked. Northern Pacific officials anticipate little or no damage this season from washouts. Experiences of former years have shown them what to expect, and this year they have prepared themselves for what may result from an ice gorge or an unexpected break up in the Mis souri. Telegrams received at headquar ters at St. Paul, on the 20th, say that the ice has gone out of both the Yellow stone and Heart river, and that both are now free of ice. The Missouri, how ever, holds fast, and is now four feet thick at Bismarck. Had it not been for the recent change in the weather, the Missouri at Bismarck aiid above would now be clear. As it is, it is not expected to break before the first of April. The officials, however, do not anticipate any danger to the bridge, and probably none to the trestle on the Mandan side. The only trouble looked for is ...

HUNG HIGH. A Couple of Horse Thieves and Despera does Strung up at Birch Creek for their Wickedness. From M. S. Rickard, who returned last evening from Birch creek, our re porter obtained the following particulars regarding the hanging of two horse thieves and desperadoes at Birch creek on the morning of Thursday last: Two men, Felix Constant and Mc Donald, came from the north a few days ago, bringing with them eight large mules belonging to the Northwestern Coal company and a lot of horses be longing to various parties, in all twenty or more head of stock. They made strong efforts to dispose of them and had induced a ranchman on Dupuyer creek to buy the mules for $1,000. The sale was not consummated, however, owing to the fact that no one would make out a bill of sale for them, and they had no bill of sale from the northern owners of the animals. This fact aroused the sus picion that the stock had been stolen, and it was determined to arrest the men and bring their to Benton. The f...

The United States is in favor of war-between England and Russia-every time. JAY GOULD, since his arrival in New York, is reported to be of the opinion that there are too many uncertainties overhanging the business community for any prudent person to come boldly out on either side of the American stock market.
