KockI Mountain Iundandlln R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6. 1877. THE inlijation Of good times ahead Were never better. Our people are nearly all out of debt. are making money, and will soon commence lixing up their homes in good style. The markets are improving yearly and immigration is tinding its way hither. SINCE our last isule, we are in receIpt of the Congressional Record containing the speech of HIa. Martin Maginnis before the Territorial Committee on the Army Appro priation bill. The speech was indeed a fine and truthful effort, and will receive the un animous endorsement of the people of our frontier Territories. If Congress would adopt the course marked out by him, the protection of our country from the hostile Indians would be more effectual, and, we believe, the cost less burdensome than under the present regulations. We regret that our limited space procludes the reproduction of the speech in our columns. OF all the labors of life, securing a home Is the mo...

LIVE_8TOCK.__ IBREEDING TROTTERS. Breeding trotters is checkered with inany disappointments says Observer in the Miceh igan. Farmer. Most breeders start out with higs expectations, and anticipate more than theyrtralzp. rThey expect to raise colts of invinuule courage and auperlAtive action withojt aying tbe foundaion . for it. A large majority ofý.tereeders. cqnmmence> with common mares.th.t never had the trotting action, or any,.rttural propensity to ac, quire It, and send them to stallions that are unworthy of the name of speed. They have violated the law of propagation by not adapting means to ends, and will be doomzxed to disappointment. I6 would be a miracle to get speed where it never did exist. Tetc sire and dawn must be trotters, and inherit the propensity throurh a trotting family to have a reasonable certainty that they will produce their like. A long list of celebrated trotting progeai tors concentrated in, the blood of the sire is a good starting point. The dam must e...

III CELLA N E OUS. THE MOOI8 O$ MARS. A discovery that will rank among the most iniporranit in astronomy was made at Washington on the night of the 1Rith ult., by Professor Asaph Hall. The planet Mars, since the invention of the telescope, has proved more convenient for examination, and there is more known about it than any other celestial object, not excepting the Moon, since that only one side is ever turned toward us. ,Venus, though nearer us than Mars, is never seen to as great ad vantage. All who have studied the charac teristics of Mars have been struck by its similarty in many particulars to the earth; such as having continent and seas ; frozen poles where the progress of winter and sum mer can be alternately, traced; a day of about the same length as ours; an atmos pliere over pQr3tiots of which clouds are flit ting. But the one thing in which Mars was sup posed to differ totally from the earth , wfis the absence of a moon. That reproach is now taken away from the red planet...

Itcky loen tain Hlusbanmall1 R. N. SUTHIERLIN, Editor. THUR3DDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1877. WE arc glad to know that our delegate in Congress is tully alive to the interests of the Territory, as his late able address before the House goes to show, and we trust that lie may have slfficient influence with the old fogy philanthropists of the States to secure us sufficient protection another year. The army in our midst is a mere skeleton coin parld with the formidable Indian, forces that surround us. At least two more military posts are needed before the country can be said to be secure. and these should be built the coming summer. We refer to the post now being asked for by the people of South ern Montana, and the long talked of post on the Muscleshell or Judith. Another season's war such as the past would be disastrous to our Territory. Immigration has just got started in this direction, and our broad, fer tle valleys, which are now inhabited only by wild ganme and a few hunters, will soon b...

LIVE STOCK. ENGLISH AND AMEEICAN BEEF. The importation of live beef cattle, and dead beef in the quarter, into England, con .tnues to agitate the public wind there. A number of the leading journals connected more or less with agriculture in Ureat Brit ain, have sent representatives to this coun try to look up this matter in detail, and re port upon the status of buef and beef cattle ifn the United States. The .difficulty with our neighbors on tihe other side of the great pond, seems to have been, they teared the influx of Americ:an beef, live and dressed, would carry the price there below the point at which remunerative profits would accrue to the feedcrs of English beef. Among the journals ,who have had a rep resentative in the United States looking up the status of the case and reporting what hb saw, the ,Scotsman, a leading Scottish newspaper,-has heen prominent. We have read his letters with interest, and as a rule they have been pointed, truthful and perti ,nent. In the issue o...

IISCELLANEOUS. A RENAKABLE ECHO. Our last visit to Milan, write: a correspon dent, was to the Villa Simouetti, a huge old palaoe in a plantation about two miles be yond the city gates, now let out as a tene ment house, and swarming with washerwo men and their broods. You climb toilsome }y into the tourth story, and are ushered in to a small room facing an angle of the lofty flat walls which surround the court-yard on three sides, the fourth side being open to the level plain beyond. A woman takes up a great trumpet, shaped like a fog-horn, and proceeds to yell,shrick, and grumble through it' a succession of sharp and flat notes, and a marvellous echo comes back from the oppo site angle, and plays along the sides of the wall, repeating and trilling the sounds I can not tell how many times, now in plaintive musical strains, now in singular cadences, now in rollicking, guffawing, exuberant joc ularity. Then the 'amnsel--who lives by the fees (hat the echo brings her in, like Eliphaz, t...

louty Monstai lusIInashlan. R. N. SUTIHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1877. THE recent successes.of the Russian army, the capture of Kars and Plevna, and the prospect that the Russian cannon will soon be heard thundering away in front of Con stantineple, has excited no little interest among the nations of Europe,. and just what course affairs will take it is impossible at present to tell, though a general European war-Russia and Germany against Turkey, England, France and Austria-is not im probable. We may at least expect soon to see England espouse the cause of the Turks. When the Czar of Russia declared war on Turkey. and began marshaling his armies upon the banks of the Danube the world was led to believe that it was a war in behalt of Christianity, and for the sole purpose of freeing certain Ottoman provinces from bar lbarism and misrule, and who, it was alleged, woull rise at the auproach of their deliver ers and swell their armies by the thousands as they pressed forwar...

LIVI STOCK. ENOLISH SHORTHORN AIANIA. In an article on the "Shorthorn Mania," s.he Pall Mall Gazette has the. following: r Helfers at 4,000 guineas apiece are now not uncommon. The other day a noble lord fell so completely in love with one of these delicate creatures that he jumped from 3.300 guineas to 4.300 guineas at one bid. This proof of spirit was received with the wildest enthusiasm. The "points" of this animal were doubtless superb. We may recall the fact that among race horses high priced yearlings are not usually very profitable to their enthusiastic owners, and are moreover, rarely chosen to breed ,frqm. A trainer can find out what a thor oughbred two-year-old is made of very soon; but over what sort pf course can a breeder try his 4,000 guineas heifer? Al *,ready this breeding in-and-in has produced an extreme delicacy among the progeny and perhaps something worse. The theory is that these highly bred, delicately natured ..pedigree cattle serve, when carefully dis tribut...
