Some further information in reference to the Cree raid on the Marias, gleaned 1 yesterday, goes to show that it was more extensive than was first reported, and there areseveral "precincts" yet to hear from. From Tom Bevans, who came in from the upper Marias yesterday, we ob tained the following details of the raid: He left Kipp's post on Thursday, and up to that time the carcasses of twelve work cattle had been found, and he states that all of them belonged to Clark Tingley. Some stock cattle were discovered slaughtered at Baker's battle ground, and doubtless this is not the extent of the loss in this particular. Sol. Abbott and Henry Powell, who have ranches at the Willow Rounds, lose 25 head of horses, and about 100 were stole...

THZE ILVER BELLSE. The Clendenin Mining & Smeltmng Com pany Compromises with the "Jump ers," and Secures Possession of the Property. For some time negotiations with refer erence to the purchase of the Tfamous Silver Belle mine at Barker, by the Clendenin Mining & Smelting company, have been in progress, and they cumina ted agreeably to all parties yesterday morning. It is something in the nature of a compromise all around. In the first place Mr. Burghardt purchased the in terests of a number of the original own ers, so as to secure, we believe, a controll ing ownership. This done the nextstep was to secure peaceable possession of the mine and avert the long course of litiga tion likely to ensue unless some agree ment could be effected with the reloca tors, and this has now been done, giving the mining and smelting company full possession and control. As we have learneQdfrom reliable sour ces the sum paid the "jumpers" to relin quish all right or title they may have to the pr...

THE SURGING SHONKIN. SWELLED BY THE RIPPLING HIGH WOOD, TO FLOW THROUGH THE STREETS OF BENTON. A Water Works Scheme that Promises to be a Grand Success--What the Shonkin Tunnel is Likely to Bring Forth. On Saturday of this week the Shonkin tunnel, which is being driven through the grade across the river, together with the dam, will be completed, and as soon as desired the waters of the Shonkin can be turned upon the valley on the opposite side of the river from this city. Looked at alone as an irrigating scheme one is led to believe it would be a great success, and a source of big revenue to its projectors, but irrigation is not a tithe of the good results expected to follow the completion of the tunnel. Desiring to lay before its readers all the information attainable on the subject, a RIVER PRESS reporter interviewed Sheriff McDevitt, with the following satisfactory result: "Now that the tunnel is about comn pleted, to what good purposes do you ex pect to put the 'hole?'
