'iE NORTHERN UCOLNTRY. FonT McLEOD, June 19,'1881. To the Rlivr Press: We have had some changes since I wrote my last. Col. Jarvis has been relieved from command of Fort McLeod, and ordered to Wood Mountain. Capt. Crozier is the pres ent co)mmander. Col. McLeod is expected here in a few days. The Indians convicted of killing cattle made good their escape while chopping wood; they watched their chance, and when the guard was not looking they broke the chains attached to their legs, and skipped. The cattle men began the round-up ten days ago, and I don't think any cattle were lost last winter in this country. A Mr. McLean arrived from Bitter Root yesterday, having crossed the mountains al ready this spring. He thinks some of locat ing in tnis country. He sold what cattle he brought over to Main & Dennis, of the Teton valley. He is an extensive dealer in stock, )both cattle and horses, and is a partner of Mr. Higgins, of Missoula. Some more of the mounted police have deserted from ...

PARTED. Can I believe what yet mine eyes have seen. That we are parted who were once so near? That far behind us lie the meadows green, Where we no more may greet the early year, And praise the crocus-buds, while yet, More happy in each other than in spring! If I remember, how should you forget, And leave me lonely in my wandering. Can I believe, what yet mine ears have heard, That severed is our sweet companionship? An autumn wind among the woodland stirred And blew your kisses from my grieving lip; Time stepped between us and unclasped our hands That reach in vain across the widening days; Life met our wistful look with stern commands, And led us coldly down divided ways. Can I believe, what yet my heart has felt, That never more our paths will be the same? That even now your joyous musings melt To tenderer longing at a dearer name? Then say farewell, since that must be the word, In life's strange journey I may yet rejoice, But still through all its voices will be heard The linger...

THE FLY. Bill Nye Gives the Experiences of a Bald Headed Man. Much has been said of the fly of the per iod, but few write about him who are bald beaded. Hence we say a word. It is of no use any more to deny the horrible truth. Although as beautiful as a peri in other -ways, our tresses on top have succumbed to the inclem ency of the weather, and our massive brow is slowly creeping over towards the back of our neck. Nature makes all things even. If a man be possessed of such ravishing beauty and such winning ways that his power might become dangerous, she makes him bald-headed. That is our fix. When we have our hat on and go chasse ing down the street with that camel glide of ours every one asks who that noble looking Apollo with the deep and melancholly eye is; but when we are at the office with our hat hung up on the French walnut sideboard, and the sun comes softly in through the rose wood shutters and lights up the shellac pol ish of our intellectual dome, we are not so pretty.

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, July 20, 1881. JERRY COLLIN'S, - - - . -- EDITOR GUTTEAU wants a consulate. If he gets his deserts he will soon have one "in. a warm climate." LIBERAL subscriptions are being made to the Mrs. Garfield fund, the $250,000 being subscribed already. GUITTEAU was for several years a member of Henry Ward Beecher's flock. Perhaps that accounts for it. RAILROADs.are all that Montana needs to develop as no State or Territory has ever de veloped before. And they are coming with all possible speed. THE President has borne up under his af fliction like a hero. His physical endurance is something remarkable, and his moral stamina not less so. THE yellow fever is raging at Havana, but fortunately it has not yet appeared in this country. It looks as if Memphis will escape the scourge this year. CONKLING announces positively that he will not withdraw from the senatorial con test. Well, nobody expected that he would. Neither does anyone expect that he will be Ieturned to ...

MONTANA, [Salt Lake Tribune.] In the great procession of States Montana will, ere long, assume a stately place. It is still a rough Territory, some of its features are crude and uncouth, but the shadow of the desert passes away before Montana is reached ; the glorified hills are carpeted with green and often crowned with forests, and in valley and on mountain there is a promise of a strength and majesty which is to culmi nate in manhood and womanhood in the fu ture that softer climes never bring forth. So far the people have been busy blazing trails and laying the foundations of homes. As when the first settlers went they were forced to traverse the hills without grade, and to ford the streams ; so the pratice became a habit, and to this day no fortunes have been lost there in grading mountains or in bridg ing streams. The log house is still common ; the saddle and pack horse and "jerkle" stage are frequent, and the girls on horseback drive upthe cows without any such trifling inter...

THE NORTHERN COUNTRY. FORT MACLEOD, July 1, 1881. To the River Press: Things generally speaking at this place are somewhat dull, but considering the time of year they are as lively as could be expected. The grand push spoken of some time back moving the Fort to Pincher creek-has turned out to be a grand fiasco; they intend to remain on the island as long as there is ground to stand on. The Syndicate survey left here on the 20th of June for Morleyville. They employed some men here as packers and some as axe men, but the wages are small considering the country they are going into and the hard ships they will have to undergo. Col. Macleod returned from Brattleford a few days ago, and commences a sitting of the District Court to-day. He has some very heavy cases on hand. The first will be the Indian who killed Policeman Greyburn at Cypress last fall; his conviction is doubtful, owing to lack of evidence; they have none but Indian evidence, and they, as a rule, will not work to favor the...

THE RIVER PRESS. THE STORY OF THE GATE. Across the pathway myrtle-fringed,' Under the maple, it was hinged The little wooden gate; 'T was there, within the quiet gloam, When I had strolled with Nellie home, I used to pause to wait, Before I said to her good night, Yet loath to leave the winsome sprite Within the garden pale: And there the gate between us two. We'd linger as all lovers do, And lean upon the rail. And face to face, and eyes close to eyes, Hands meeting hands in feigned surprise After a stealthy quest So close I'd bend, ere she'd retreat, That I'd grow drunken from the sweet Tuberose on her breast. We'd talk-in fitful style I ween With many a meaning glance between The tender words and low; We'd whisper some dear, sweet conceit, Some idle gossip we'd repeat; And then I'd move to go, "Good-night," I'd say; "good night-good bye !" ' Good-night"-from her, with half a sigh "Good-night! good-night!" and then And then I do not go, but stand; Again lean on the railing and And...

THE RIVER PRESS, FINGER RINGS. Their Antiquity and Traditions of Magi cal Power-Some Ancient Rings. Fashions in finger rings-if the passer-by may judge from the jewelers' windows of to day-suffer but little change. Fashions in clothes come and go with a season; and at best do not seem able to outlast the century that created them. But everywhere to-day women are wearing rings that had their shapes fourteen hundred years and more, be fore Christ. It is not surprising that there is nothing new in this matter of rings for fash ion, fancy, religion and love have combined to create styles and shapes in rings for thou sands of years, from a time so far in the past that the rings shine there alone, all around is in ashes and darkness. Society observers remark with a displeasure on what they are pleased to call a "tendency" of ring fashions to a profusion of rings on one or all fingers. This is not new. At first the Romans only used a single ring, then one on each finger, then several on ea...

T"HERE are 962 daily papers in the United States and Territories.. Six of these are cred ited to Montana. SITTING BULL has surrendered to United States authorities at Fort Buford. Another stalwart humbled. 'uTE monetary conference at Paris has ad journed until spring, without accomplishing anything worth mentioning. TxHE lesson of the rain is to the effect that Benton must incorporate. Until this step is taken there will be no adequate drainage. GARFIELD will be spared to serve out his term as President, and Guitteau will proba bly serve out a life sentence in the Peniten tiary. PLATT'S senatorial career was exceedingly brief. With great propriety he can sing, If so soon I am rejected, I wonder why I was elected. THm Ohio people are not swelling the Mts. Garfield fund to any great extent.

The interest felt by the public in the details of the assassination and the many stories published justify me in stating that the following is f correct and accurate statement concerning the points to which reference is made : The assassin, Charles J.
