Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska and
New Mexico, five out of the ten territories,
may be expected to candidate before the next j
Congress for admission to full sisterhood, it
is only lately that the public attention has
been sufficiently withdrawn from more ab
sorbing objects, to take in the fact that
during all me waste of war there has been a
surprising process of growth going on in tliu
remote West: a fact which has the most im
portant political as well as commercial bear
ings. Colorado has now only to torm a
proper State Constitution to secure its ad
mission : its population is variously estima
ted some say sixty, others eighty thousand;
even at the first estimates having almost
doubled since the census of 1860. This pop
ulation has mainly bean drawn to Colorado
iiv the gold mining, which differs from that
oi California in the comparative absence ot
placer diggings;" quart;-mining is the busi
ness of Colorado, requiring heavy invest
ments of capital in machinery, and tending
apparently to produce permanent improve
ments and comparatively stable communi
ties. The field there for quart7-minmg seem
to be abundant; only the Pacific ranroad is
needed to lessen the present great expense
of transporting the heavy macbineiy trom
the East Agriculture offers to emigrants
the attractions of a productive soil in the
valleys, and a high range of price l ''.
Idaho and Montana, a vast expanse, are
noth drawing population fast with the miner’s
loadstone, and will each, it is thought, num
ber near one hundred thousand inhabitants
before the year ends.
Nebraska is nearer, has been before the
public longer, and is thought to have over
fifty thousand inhabitants, gathered in a
more steady way of growth ; a good climate
and soil. New Mexico is old enough to
come in as regards date of settlement, which
was made by the Spanish in the sixteenth
century. It has about one hundred thousand
■if population, about one third Indians.
The next Congress will probably have on
its hands, in addition to the serious problems
which are already under discussion among
ihe people, the question of admitting to our
fellowship five new States; and States, more
over, consecrated by nature to free labor. In
the influence which these to-be-States may
exercise upon our national councils, may be
found, perhaps, one of the means by which
our deliverence is to be effected from the po
litical perils which threaten us.— Hartford
I .xtraordtnary Crime—A Man Waylaid,
Robbed, and Thrown Over a Ledge of
About 9 o’clock on Saturday night, as a
young man named Frank Halstead, residing
in the vicinity of the Five Corners, Hudson
City, was parsing down the long line of steps
leading from the public grounds on Mount
Pleasant, Berglu Hill, to the plank walk
across the meadow in the rear of Jersey City,
he was set upon by two highwaymen, who
knocked him insensible with a club, robbed
him, and then threw him over a ledge of
rocks, where the poor man lay for several
hours in an unconscious state, in a terribly
bruised and lacerated condition, caused by
tailing upon a pile of sharp and jagged stones,
the refuse from a quarry. The facts of the
case are as follows: ' About 6 o’clock on
Saturday afternoon young Halstead, who is
a nephew of “Uncle Tommy Weldon," who
was the owner ofMount Pleasant, until it was
recently purchased and fitted up for a public
resort, and who had resided on the place
with his uncle for a number of years, called
upon liis friend Micky Free, the pedestrian,
whom he invited to accompany him up to
the old homestead to see how it looked since
it had been fitted up for a public resort
Micky accepted the invitatiou and the two
spent a couple of hours at the grounds, du
ring which young Halstead treated those
present liberally with lager, getting a couple
of five dollar bills changed to pay for it, and
talking somewhat in a boasting manner of
being worth a considerable amouut of money.
At the time, a stranger sat near the company,
but took no part ia their soi iable chat
About 8 o’clock, Micky Free returned home
and retired for the ni"ht, Halstead concluded
to go home o the lie Corners by a sho er
route. About 9 o'clock, the citizens along
Newark-ave., at the oatskirtsof Jersey City,
were startled by piercing and repeate'd cries
of murder in the direction of the foot of the
stairs leading to Mount Pleasant, and search
was instituted but no person could be found
who knew anything of the matter.
On Sunday' morning, Micky Free, fearing
thal harm had befallen his triend, proceeded
to Mount Pleasant to make inquiries, but
could team nothing further than that a bun
dle and hat had been picked up on the steps,
and upon their being shown to him he at once
identified them as the property ot Halstead.
Among other articles, the bundle had con
tained a pair of new pantaloons, which were
missing. Micky Free then proceeded to
Halstead’s residence, and found him lying
there in a terribiy bruised and mangled
state, his head badly swolen and bruised, and
his bodily injuries ot a serious nature, being
blackened and lacerated, and causing him to
raise considerable quantities of blood.—
Halstead states that he started for home
down tt e long stairway, when some person
approached him from behind and knocked
him down with a club. He quickly regained
his feet, and ran down the steps with all pos
sible speed, crying “Murder!" but the ruf
flans again overtook and struck him a second
blow across the side of the face, when he tell
and became insensible. The ruffians then
rifled his pockets of about $8 in money, and
when he returned to consciousness about 2
o’clock in the morning, he found himself ly
ing upon a heap of stones at the foot of a
ledge of rocks some 25 feet high, where the
robbers had thrown him. Being unable to
stand from the injuries sustained, he crawled
on bis bauds and knee3.to a spring of water
about thirty rods distant, across the New
Jersey Railroad track, and, after bathing Ids
Head and drinking the cool water, revived
somewhat, when with great difficulty he
made hia way home, arriving there about 5
o’clock in the morning ; and a physician be
ing called in, and after being properly cared
for, appeared much better 'during the day,
but yesterday was much worse, and it is
feared that the Injuries may terminate fatally
No clue as to the whereabout of the robbers
has yet been obtained, but every effort will
be made to bring them to justice.
ab Extraordinary Story.
The London (C. W.) Frea Press tells the
following extraordinary story about a man
who was without food for three weeks, and
who became a “living skeleton •"
An American named James Ruth employed
by our townsman, Mr. Hunt, at the Sells
Mill in Southwold, left his work last iym
Jul» for the purpose of returning to bis home
m the States. On the same day he arrived
at and dined in Fort Stanley, but finding no
vessel there which answered his purpose he
took the lake shore road westward, intending
to spend a few days harvesting among the
miners in the neighborhood Before climb
ing the bank, he, being hot, resolved to re
fresh himself by a bath in the ripling waves
of Lake Erie. He lelt a little sick in the
water, and the next thing he remembers is
finding himself naked on the sandy shore,
with a consciousness of having drank raven
ously of water to assuage his great thirst.—
He was a day or two getting on bis clothes;
his skin was cracked on his face and other
places, and filed with sand, and he was so
weak that he failed many times in the
arduous labor. of climbing the
bank. This he at last accomplished
°aly cu Saturday, the * 6th of
August, when ha, unable to climb' a fence,
made signs to two men in the field, who, un
-ortu&teiy for him, bad come to make a bar
bo?.t^omo Bbee P- The two peraons
hn”?®* ™ cPher * on > farmer, and Mr. Blake,
At first thev took the sol-
X* . g / or ' oDle wandering luditn, but
. doubts decided, as they saw him
i be drunk or Injured, and
1 “ ?a fWolved to see what be was. tVhen
they came to him, imagine their horror and
surprise at the sight of a living skeleton— a
veritable live shadow of death I
This extraordinary case is to be accounted
for by the supposition that Mr. Rush, who
was a stout, hearty man, had had s sunstroke
and an aitack of typhoid fever, during wbicli
he in some way bad obtained water trom the
lake, the only support except bis own flesh
P» the demands of a consuming fever for
seventeen days ? His legs are now, as Mr.
Hunt has remarked, ‘like pipe-stems’: but
he Is now carefully tended and cared for
by Mr. McPherson, whose kindness will, we
hope, soon restore this unfortunate mnn to
health and friends and usetulne9s.
Reported Oltkagk bv a New Exo lasd |
Officer. —The Newbern correspondent »f
the New York Tribuue writes as follows :
In the town of Newbern lives a wor
thy old black woman, who years ago receiv
ed, from some friendly while family moving
from the town, the present of an old sash
ioned bat a large and fine mirror. A Major
of a New England regiment, whose quat - :
ters were in the neighborhood, had noticed J
this showy piece of furniture, and, as hi®
wife was about to make him a visit, begged !
its loan for the adornment of his room, with j
the promise of its careful return upon the
departure of his wife. Months passed, and
no return of the looking-glass, until the old
colored woman, learning that the regiment
wa9 about to move, ventured to caU on the
Major and bring his promise to his attention.
Nov, mark how this Yankee Major honored
bis uniform. He assured the old Auntie
that he had not the most distant thought of
returning the glass; that no nigger could
have such an article of furniture unless she
had stolen it; and, at any rate, the glass
suited his purpose, and be intended to keep
it. Upon lror pleading his promise, and'
telling _ him of bis attachment to
the article ns a present from a family
to whom ahe was long attached, the
honorable Major grew vexed and angry, and
taking the splendid mirror from the wall
placed It upon the floor, stamping upon it
with his brute heels uutil it was a thousand
fragments, mockingly told the old woman
she might tako her glass home. She goes to
the Provost Marshal witli her atory, only to
be answered by the derisive laugh of that
functionary and all bis clerks.
A North Carolina Watkri.no Place.— A
correspondent of the Cincinuati Gazette,
writing from Danbury, N. 0., says:
Danbury is In a hilly, almost mountainous
region, extending a considerable distanoe
eastward, and traversed by the railroad from
Danville. It abounds in clear stream®,
whose fringesof willow and alder, and mossy
banks ovei hanging deep pools, are wonder
fully suggestive of brook trout.
In the edge of the town it a cemetery so
old that none know Its origin, and the names
and dates have become illegible. It It no
longer used except as a browsing place for
Two miles from the place are the Pied
mont Springs, an i, as at the North, the sea
son here is more lively than since the war
began. It is a noted place for the State, and
But let no one suppose that any of the
fashions or follies of Newport or Saratoga
have penetrated this wild district. Going to
“ the Springs ” means something very dif
ferent here. It involves the use of an ox
cart or a wagon to haul such articles as your
fancy raav suggest, or you may be able to
furnish from vonr home' down in the State,
to one of the little ten bv twelve log cabins
which you can hire here' and keep house in
through the season, provided you can bring
corn and bacon enough over the rough roads
to last as long. There Is no hotel, and all
are thrown upon their own resources.
Chaplain Trumbull writes to the Spriug
fleld Republican as follows about Jeff. Davis
"For an hour each day Davis walks out
on the brick pavement before the rows of
prisonere’ casemates, or on the parapet above.
He comes from his room attended by the
iffleerof the day and followed Immedia ely
by two soldiers of the guard with their rifles.
Gen. Miles is usually present when he takes
this Walk, sometimes accompanying him, at
others sitting where he can watch film
Davi9 has allowed bis moustache and lull
beard to grow, they with bis hair being quite
gray. He wears green goggles with wire
gauze frames. His dress ts a loose yet well
tilting suit of rebel grey, with a’ bioad
briuimed, soft- felt hat. His step is firm and
his bearing erect. There is nothing in his
appearance to Indicate exhaustion of body,
nor yet severe mental anguish. His answers
to casual remarks of the officer accompany
ing him are in a prompt and cheerful tone."

The demand for bouse* is great, and the

A French paper tells a story of a duel be
tween two gentleman, who were so equally
matched with the sword and pistol that they
decided to tight with cigars, two ot which
were prepared externally alike, but one was
to be loaded so as to explode and prove mor
tal to the smoker Lota were drawn and
the weeds were lighted. After a few pufls,
an explosion took place, and the duellist fell
on his back. He was presently picked np,

Eastern Virginia is overrun by horse
thieves, who steal from farmers without res
pect to their political sentiments. These
gangs are composed of returned rebels, who
have a well arranged system for running off
stolen horses, and convening them at once
into cash. The military authorities bare
taken the matter in hand, and will probable
restore order to that section. *
