THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, December 1, 1880. OUR Territorial Solons are bracing up for the siege at the capital. They should first dissipate all idea of obstructive tactics rela tive to local measures, where the demand comes from and is submitted by the represen tatives of the locality where the measure is needed. WE are in favor of judicious expenditures of money upon the county roads. The re sult is not so readily discernable as when the expenditure is made upon public buildings, etc., but an hour's stroll through our4 busi ness houses very forcibly-illustrates the wis dom of improvements upon public roads and highways. IT Is repot ted now that the directors of the Union Pacific Railway Company will reor ganize, and that the enormous passenger rates of 7J cents per mile that it has been im posing for so long upon a helpless public, and with wonderful magnanimity will reduce the fare between Omaha and Ogden from $77 to $62. But let us be .hankful Evwn for this. AGITATION 3Ver the d...

MONTANA MITES,. [Yellowstone Journal.] Tongue river was frozen Tuesday six inches thick and teams crossed in safety. Sergt. Kennedey, who has for so long had charge of the telegraph office at Fort Keogh, has been ordered to Deadwood to take charge of the office in that city. Many of our citi zens, and all who have had business with him regret greatly his departure and especi ally ye editor. General Miles left Fort Keogh Wednesday morning for Washington City, where he will await for further orders. Gen. Whistler is now commander of Fort Keogh, and will probably remain as such until Congress rati fies the appointment of some one else. Gen. Whistler is well acquainted with all details of the Indian business and will do equally go od c,fficial work as his predecessor. We under stand that he will take immediate steps to ward bringing in Sitting Bull, who has so far successfully defied all efforts to capture him. Upon a careful estimate made by Treasur er Savage, who has just returned fro...

WEANGELL LAND. Among the Whalers-The Icy Glories and Terrors of the Northern Ocean. Conclusion of the Corwin's Cruise--Where is the Jeannette P [New York Herald,] On going northward from Point Barrow a very perceptible change was noticeable in the season. The clear cut outlines of distant mountains, covered with recent snow and having a certain kind of beauty consti tuting one of the glories of Arctic scenery, looked bleak and wintry; the former mid night sun now disappears below the horizon, the last of him resembling the tap-hole of an iron furnace and flashing down to a mere point of light; the moon, owing to refrac tion, shows a diameter of unusual propor tions; Polaris and the Dipper are just seen overhead, and magnificent auroras are of al most nightly occurr~ence. These phenomena alternate with snow squalls and violent gales from the northwest, during one of which we anchored under the lee of Cape Thompson, a stupendous rocky cliff many hundred feet in height, and one of the ...

A LATE WILD ROSE. The sweetest rose I plucked this year Grew with September's sun, With rose-berries bright in scarlet gear, One rose-and only one. One left to blossom and to bear Its bloom with autumn's breath; Scarcely to break its stem I dare, It shows such dread of death ! So ]oth to bend--the-common lot With sister flowers its head, To droop and die, and be forgot, One among myriad dead; Sweeter to live and be carressed, To look in human eyes, To exale upon some maiden breast A breath of paradise. PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. The British navy is complaining of the dearth of suitable men for petty officers, and of the necessity for the reorganization of the rank and file of the navy. When Clara Morris began her first engage ment with Manager Abbey, eleven years ago, she played eight times a week for $20. She has since had "a raise" to six appearances a week for $2,000. An Oregon ranchman threw a lasso clum sily, and the noose fell around his own neck. Just then the horse unseated hi...

THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, December 8, 1880. H. C. WILLIA MS, - - - - - - - EDITOR OPPOSITION to the Land League appears to be growing in Ireland. WE will present a synopsis of the Presi dent's Message next week. THE signal service is still without a head, and the weather is still unsettled. IT is estimated that the census return will show that there are about 80,000 Chinese in America, of which number the Pacific coast has 52,000. THE new Baltimore & Ohio line was opened on the 1st, by the departure of three trains which will hereafter run daily to the principal Western cities. IT is to be hoped that our citizens will take some action to form a literary club here. There i's plenty of talent wasting its sweetness on the desert air, and it is so dull that even the commonplace would have the effect of a start ling excitement. THE Missouri Pacific, and the Missouri, Kansas and Texas roads have been formally consolidated. A. A. Talmage was appointed general manager. The combined tra...

MONTANA MITES, [Miner.] On Friday last Judge Spratt, on behalf of A. C. Witter, filed a notice of protest against the validity of the election certificate recently issued to James McAndrews, who, on the face of the returns, was alleged to have a majority of one at the recent election, and to whom a certificate of election was given by the county clerk on the strength of abstracts certified to by county commissioner Batter ton, the other commissioner and the acting member of the board having refused to sanc tion the count. This matter will bring the whole matter up before the district judge, who will examine into all the circumstances of the case and determine the legal rights of the claimants. It is unfortunate that the closeness of the vote necessitates such costly and doubtless protracted investigation; but it is to be hoped that the imbroglio will be thoroughly inquired into, and the legally suc essful candidate duly installed in office. [Herald.] The Territorial debt will probab...

THE OLD SEA KINGS. The Fierce Norsemen who for Centuries Terrorized Europe-A Viking's Tomb. Upon the southwestern coast of a Norwe gian fiord which penetrates inland as far as Christiana, there has lain for centuries past, between mountains and sea, a certain tumu lus known in the country round as Kongsaug or the King's Hill. In the Dark Ages, when kings were plentiful in Scandinavia, and ev bry chief fought, like Hal o' the Wynd, "for his own hand," tradition tells us that some mighty monarch was buried beneath that huge turf-covered mound, one hundred and fifty feet in diameter, and it has long been held sacred to his memory. But the other day, for the first time as it seemed, some in quisitive peasants ventured to explore those hidden treasures which their forefathers had reverenced. Their search was richly reward ed; for after a few months of patient labor, under the direction of a learned antiquary, there was revealed to human eyes a large and well preserved Viking war-ship, wh...

Within a short period over 600 millions of five and six per cent. bonds will become redeemable. This pre sents a very favorable opportunity not only to further reduce the principle of debt. but also to reduce the rate of interest on that which will remain unpaid. Specie payments have not been interrupted an l have contributed to the revival of indur try and trade. No considerable amount of United States notes have been presented for redemption, while very large sums of gold bullion, both domestic and imported, are taken to the mints and exchanged for coin or notes. The increase of coin and bullion in the United States since January 1, 1879, is estimated at $227,399,428. There are still in existence, uncancelleJ, $ 346,681,016 in legal tender notes.
