MUTANTER. "Cool and palm-shaded from the torrid heat. The young brown tenor puts his singing by, And sets the twin pipe to his lips, to try Some air of bulrush-glooms where lovers meet; 0 swart musician ! time and fame are fleet, Brief all delight, and youth's feet fain to fly ! Pipe on in peace! To-morrow must we die? What matter, in our life to-day be sweet ? Soon, soon, the silver paper reeds that sigh Along the Sacred River will repeat The echo of the dark-soled bearers' feet! Who carry you, with wailing, where must lie Your swathed and withere : body, by and by, In perfumed darkness,with the grains of wheat." THE NEWSPAPER. "The Editor's Sanctum Fits t After the Church," Says The Rev, Robt. Uollyer. "The steam engine does no day's work so marvelous in its whole result as that which is done by the steam printing press; the wire flashes no such weight of interest, the railroad carries no such freight as the last edition, while the artist has no such opening as this that transfers...

SARA BERNHARDT IN BUSTON. A Humorous Take-off on the Furore in thf East over the Divine Sara. [Chic, New York.] The journey from New York to Buston was of the least exciting, though I was show. ered with delicate attentions by every one. The humble boy that conducts the service of the newspapers on the train made frequent pilgrimages to my shrine, and insisted on en dowing me with oranges, apples, confections, nuts, newspapers, magazines, at the end I know not what, which he left on my seat. M. Schwab explained to me that the poor youth was solicitous to express his admira tion of Art in the only way in which it was possible for him to express it, namely, by making me gifts from his store, and gener ously suggested that as the lad would ruin himself by his lavishness, he should insist on paying the price of the articles out of his own pocket and charge it to me. I consent, and at the last station my youthful admirer bade me farewell, exclaiming, "So-long, Sal ly." It was a cry of th...

MONTANA MITES, [Herald] The production of pork in the Territory this year will exceed by one-third that of any other season. Notwithstanding the high price of grain, our farmers find that swine growing is profitable. Lieut. Reynold, quartermaster at Fort Hall, was robbed lately by two recruits, named Marion and Fitzgerald, of $750, by breaking open the safe. They were caught at Laramie city. The following came in from Benton on the 29th: "Thermometer 59 deg. Ibelow zero this morning. Mean temperature for the day, 54 deg below zero, and not a d--d stick of wood in town. A gentleman who came in recently from Granville Stuart's cattle ranch in the Judith Basin country, says that the storm did not reach much beyond Diamond city. He said there was no snow in Smith River valley and but little in the Musselshell. [Husbandman.] The Canadian prophet who said we were to have a snow storm on the 22nd that would continue until it reached a depth of eleven feet, has thus far missed it only by ab...

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. Up to December 25, the number of immi grants arrived at New York since January 1, 1880, was 318,931. Bismarck, while yet a romantic, swagger ing youth, fell in love with a lovely peasant girl in the Tyrol, and wanted to marry her, but her father refused him because he was a Lutheran. Mr. James Bowen, 71, and Miss Cassie Cassel, 68, were married in Washington the other day. Fifty years ago they were lovers, but the bride's parents broke up the engage ment because they were too young. So great has been the draft on Ohio for able bodied men to hold offices that a bounty is now offered. A few old men have sent word to President Hayes that they would like to know the price of substitutes. The Northwestern telegraph Company has built 2,000 miles of new line this season, and is putting up masts 176 feet high at Running Water, D. T., to get the wire across the Mis souri river, out of the way of the steamboats. Secretary Sherman does not loose any sleep on account of...

NAPOLEON As He Appeared in the Household and Be hind the Scenes. Madame de Remusat, in her memoirs of Napoleon, gives the following from his own words, and draws the most vivid picture of the great captain ever written: "'Military science' said Bonaparte, 'con sists in calculating all the chances accurately in the first place, and then in giving accident exactly, almost mathematically, its place in one's calculations. It is upon this point that one must not deceive one's self, and that a decimal more or less may change all. Now, this apportioning of accident and science can not get into any head except that of a genius, for genius must exist wherever there is a creation; and assuredly the grandest improv isation of the human mind is the gift of an existence to that which has it not. Accident, hazard, chance-whatever you choose to call it-a mystery to ordinary minds, becomes a reality to superior men. Turenne did not think about it, and so he had nothing but method. I think' he added...

THE PAUSE. I. So deep her dream of coming good, So vast her gaze down passion's flood By sunny reach and shadowy wood, So bold and shy in maidenhood On fancy's treacherous steep she stood, Her will perforce must sleep; The life behind was flat and gray; Before, a swelling prospect lay; And one was whispering her to stay, And one was beckoning her away It was not hers to say him nay: And yet-she falls to weep. TI. In piteous tremor by her side The voice to each warm wish replied With words of duty, home and pride Here, certain peace-there, hopes untried; And now she mused, and now she sighed; But scarce she strives to speak. For on her wrist she felt a hand, So softly strong its master-band; A flattering breath her forehead fanned With vows 'twere treason to withstand Or be they writ on rock or sand. Yet-dare she then be weak? III. Poor child! from such a dream to wake! One word the maiden spellshall break One step her moment's empire shake. This heart shall glow, but that shall ache...

TEA LEAVES. Interesting Description of the Process of Tea-Making, by an Anglicized Ohinaman. [Foochow Herald.] A large tea-packing house presents a very different scene from that two months ago. Then, at the door one found lines of fifteen catty boxes and waiting to be soldered up. Now, none. Next, one found fat bags stacked up eight or ten feet, bursting with Pehling tea that escaped here and there through holes temporarily stopped with bamboo leaves; the bottom of the bags mostly stained from con tact with wet flights of mountain stairs upon which the exhausted coolie had set them down on the passage. Now, one finds but empty chests, hundreds in number, square, deep, and oblong, used for handling the tea in the factory. Ordinary tea-chests would not stand the rough usage. Farther on, one came to the dozen long double row of sitters facing each other, fo;ty in a row, the mesh of some taking a pencil; that of others refusing a pencil point-sifting tea leaf rough and bold, that after...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, January 12, 1881. H. C. WILLLIAMS, - - - - - - - EDITOR IN the name of the people of the United States and a suffering constituency, we call upon Gen. Hazen to resign his position as the head of the weather bureau. MR. MARTIN, of West Virginia, has intro duced a resolution in the House to annul the Northern Pacific Land Grant, in so far as it has not complied with the act creating the grant. IN the organization of the Montana House of Representatives, Col. J. J. Donnelly, of Choteau, was elected speaker. Choteau has received the recognition which its importance justifies, and the selection is a very good one. T. Pope addressed a pontifical letter to the Archbishop of Dublin for immediate publication, in which, while sympathizing with the Irish Catholics and desiring im provement in their condition, he exhorts them to do nothing contrary to law. THE Queen's speech stated that a bill would be introduced to establish county boards on an elective basis in Ire...

IfTT A TAZV Cp'",p!0 ?Tre'P From the Holday Avant Courier, and Re flections on its Resources by the Eastern Press, The boundary lines of the Territory of tMontana were delineated on the map of the United States, May 26, 1864. . More than three centuries finished their cycles after Fer dinand and Isabella received from Columbus the unparalled gift of the New World, and Montana was as invisible to the civilized na tions as the planet Neptune. But during this period this unseen region was affected by the action of European governments, and its fate and allegiance were decided by battles which were fought thousands of miles from the Rocky Mountains. The conquests of nations and the rise and fall of dynasties, set in mo tion sound-waves passing over the hemis pheres, and the roar of cannon in conflicts upon the Atlantic and in Europe reverberated from summit to summit within Montana. We wish to cast a hasty glance at some of these decisive events on the history of the Territory, which re...

AT DUSK. With the twilight enter dreams Of my sweetest, far away, And again her presence seems Near me in my room to stay, While the firelight's wavering beams Round her half-seen beauty play. Once again I seem to hold her Closely clasped against my breast, With her brown hair on my shoulder, Where her bright head used to rest, And the heart of June is colder Than the heart to my heart pressed. Oh, the joy of answering kisses, When the soul is turned to Heaven, And the sun of all Life's blisses Seems in that one moment given. And the spirit nothing misses In the peace of the still even. PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. The duty on salt has been abolished m IUs sia in the interest of the laboring classes. London supports 90,000 paupers now, or 3,000 more than it did at this time a year ago.

ILLUSIONS Of THE STAGE. Nature Imitated and Audiences Confounded by Curious Combinations. Many of the peculiar effects produced on the sti.ge, imitating moonlight, sunlight, rain,. wind, thunder, and other natural phenomena, are a puzzle to those outside of the business. How such realistic representations of these things as are often witnessed upon the stage can be made is a question that often enters the mind of the spectator, and is seldom an swered in a satisfactory manner. Thunder is a common stage effect, and is used with great advantage in many plays: In former days it was produced by shaking a large piece of sheet iron hung immediately above the prompter's desk. This contrivance produced a good imitation of sharp, rattling thunder, but failed to give the dull roar al ways heard in storms. A contrivance for this purpose was soon invented. A heavy box frame is made, and over it is tightly drawn a calf skin. Upon this the prompter operates with a stick, one end of which is padde...

THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, January 19, 1881. H. C. WILLIAMS, - - - - - - - EDITOR GEN. GARFIELD advises the colored people to discard the color line by educating their children with the whites. But such advice strikes at the eternal fitness of things which is never overlooked in the intentions of both white and colored people in the matter of race distinction. JOHN SHaRMAN has captured the Ohio Re publicans, and, as he represents a general feeling that his presence in the Senate would be more to the advantage of the country than in the Treasury Department, he will find his advent therein hailed with considerable en thusiasm by the whole country. "GEN. BEN" has carried off the honors as the Republican nominee as Senator from Indiana. He is a fluent talker and an able lawyer, but represents but little of popular sympathy. His nomination does not confer that weight upon the Hoosier State which other equally able and more popular men would have done. THE Dominion parliament is manifesti...
