Letter from the Gold Region.
We have been permitted to publish
the following letter from the West.—
It contains a description of
to the gold region, which will be of in
terest, especially to any who intend
leaving for that section, showing the
roubles and perils of an overland trip,
and also the cost and labor of living
in the gold country:
YELLOW STONE CITY,
January 25, 1865.
'Din. Violas JOHNS :—Respected
friend and brother:—As I promised
you before I left my home, and also
my friends, at North Point, that I
'would write yon the history of this
country' as far as my experience has
,proved it, I send this to you for pub
'We left Omaha, Nebraska Territory,
the 21st of May, 1864. We soon came
into the country of the Indians, which
people are 'generally friendly to the
:whites; these Indians are the remnant
of the once powerful Pawnee nation.
We soon strike the north fork of the
Platte river, which at this point is
about three miles wide and very shal
low; the valley, from bluff to bluff, is
about forty miles wide ; a beautiful
country, but in general rather cold for
agricultural pursuits. We soon arrive
at Port Kearney, on the south tide of
the river; this is a military post of
much importance, held by II S troops;
distance from Omaha, miles.
, 'Vre then preeeeded along this Val-
ley and OOP found ourselves in the
*country of the Sioux Indians; the
general character of this people are
black; dirty, cruel cutthroats, and it
was" they that caused so much trouble
on the plains last season—many tiler
whites having their property stolen,
and_ losing their lives; still, many of
them claim protection from our gov
ernment, and receive, annually, annu
ities from it. This people never harm

felt very safe. At length we arrived
'opposite' Fort Laramie, another post
bold by U S troops, and quite a thriv
ing. place. Several !white men come
here at all seasons of the year to trade
with the various tribes of Indians; dis
tance from Fort Kearney, 325 miles,
from Ofieha, 522 miles. Hero we soon
strike the Black Hills, and travel
through a rugged, mountainous coun
try for 140 miles; then we strike the
river again, which is narrow at this
place, and a bridge has been construc

tide which route we would travel.—
Finally, we decided to take the Boze
man route,'and elected officers to take
charge of the train, which then consis•
ted of 68 wagons, 182 men, several fe
males and their children. According
ly, we moved out in line, in military
style, through a barren, sandy coun
try; this spot is not owned by either
tribe, but is neutral ground, where va
rions tribes meet at certain seasons,
and often fight among themselves,
leaving heaps of
.their bones to strew
the ravines . and hillsides; their skulls
We:ofttimes picked up for examination.
None of the Indians hereabouts show
ed themselves unto us, which was ev
idence that we Were not welcome visi
tors on their soil. After traveling 100
miles through this inhospitable coun
try we Amok the Powder river, a
small but perfect stream of mud, ow
ing I suppose to late rains in the
mountains. Near this place is a large
lake; on a near approach to its banks
the traveler is almost overcome by the
sulphurous stench which arises from
its waters, whilst the hills on each side
are one continued heap of burned lava.
The next day one of our party, who
Lad been on a ;hunting excursion,
found the scalp of a white man who
had been, murdered by Indians; this
put us on the alert. Bear in mind
that Captain Townsend's train had
preceded, us a few days on the same
road, and were attacked by a war par
ty of Cheyenne Indians, when five
white men were killed, and twelve In
dians killed and 18 wounded, after
fighting about five hours. We never
saw any of them. We found where
the whites had been buried by their
comrades, but were afterwards dug up
by the wolves- and devoured. We
collected their bones and reinterrod
them, after which we crossed the
Tongue river. Game is very abund
ant throughout this region, and coal
and iron are inexhaustible in these
mountains. Here the buffalo became
very plenty, and our men shot very
many of them. We soon came to the
Little Horn river, where the country
adjoining is very fertile; grass, wood
and water in great abundance. On
our left are the.-Great Wind River
mountains, whose peeks are eternally
covered with snow. We next came to
the Big Horn river, where, for the
first time, we found gold, in the sands
of the river. A company of men went
up into the mountains to prospect for
gold, but after traveling about forty
miles were forced to return, the deep
and awful kanyons preventing their
further advance. The train then
crossed this river with safety, except
ing the loss of one horse, Whieh was
drowned. We then moved forward,
and for the first time received a visit
from the Crow Indians, who seemed
friendly, but great beggars. We next
came to Nez Perces Fork, a small and
muddy stream, with plenty of fish and
beaver in it. Here, while we lay en
camped for the night, a wild beast
came out of a thicket, marched boldly
into our corral, seized a dog and car
ried it away. We moved forward and
struck the Yellow Stone river, which
is quite a fine stream, with plenty of
the finest trout in - it, and any ordinary
fisherman with his hook and line can
catch one hundred pounds per day of
them. We now travel up the south
side of this river to Clark's Ford, men
tioned in Lewis and Clark's expedi
tion in 1845-6; this is a small stream
having its source in tho Yellow Stone
mountains. We then Came to a stream
of hot water, to which the animals and
men made a rush to quench their
thirst, but looked at each other 'with
great disappointment when they found
it too hot for their lips. Here an In
dian chief and squaw, and several oth
ers, came to visit us; he showed us
some letters written by white men, re
commending him as a white man's
friend. Then we soon arrived at the
mouth of a largo kanyon in the moun
Here our party became detached;
Travis and I hearing good and encou
raging news from Virginia city, we re
solved to go there, while David Short
hill, Weaver and Norris went up the
Yellow Stone river about twenty-eight
miles. In a few days we reached the
city, where we found hundreds of men
out of employment; the influx of emi
grants being so great that it was' im
possible for them all to got any labor
periorm i consequently they became
excited and panic stricken, and many
of them commenced their journey
homeward. Those who had money
formed themselves into large trains
and started over the plains; others,
who had spent all, built boats and ca
noes and started down the Yellow
Stone. In a few days after they left,
many of the latter party returned—
their boats having been dashed to pie
ces on the rocks, and their last provis

ions lost in the river; others went far
ther down the river only to meet
greater danger and trouble.- Few of
the poor fellows will ever reach the
States in safety, for the lurking Indians
will harass them at every point along
the upper Missouri.
Virginia city is a thriving place, and
immense quantities of gold have boon
taken out of the Alder gulch already:
Campbell estimates its production at
half ton per week, while there are sini
eral gulches in the vicinity which also .
pay well, viz a Harris; Beavans, Wash
ington,Norweglan, and several others:
The wages per day for laborers is five
dollars, drifters, from seven to ten
dollars : boarding in common houses,
14 dollars per week. Flour from the
States is sold at about 828 or 830 per
hundred weight, Salt Lake flour, from
$25 to $27 per hundred weight; beef
abontl4 cents perpound; butter, about
$1,50 per pound. Every inch of land
that has been found to contain gold
has long ago been taken up, so the
stranger when he arrives must neces
sarily work for daily wages.
While I was at Virginia city I was
informed that Mr. Shorthill had made
a great discovery. (I should state in
this place that the distance from the
Platte Bridge to Virginia city is about
500 miles.) Travis and I started back
towards the Yellow Stone, and arriving
at. Gallatin Valley we concluded to go
into the mountains to prospect for gold.
In all the streams leading into this
valley we found fine gold, but whether
it will justify working it we are not
able to say, for the weather is very
severe. This is a beautiful valley in
the warm season, but in winter is very
cold; still, the cattle roam through it
unprotected all winter, and are gener
ally fat. Nearly alt of the valley has
been taken up by Ranclunen, and
promise great crops of wheat, potatoes,
turnips, and - Amiens,- all of which grow
luxuriantly. The only Indians who
inhabit this valley at present, and claim
it as their hunting grounds, are the
Nez Perces, the Banoek Indians; and
Flat Heads pass through occasionally.
Those tribes. are deadly enemies to
each other.. The Nez Perces are the
'finest, cleanliest, and most intelligent
Indians that we have seen ; they claim
their home as being in Oregon, where
they cultivate their lands - ; they have
a Jesuit mission among them, and the
most of them speak English well.
About four weeks ago, I loft the
valley and arrived safe to my former
friends, whom Ifound snug and all well
in Yellow Stone city. This- place has
sprung up as if by magic) since last
September. There aro about 80 good
log houses, put up since that time,
-with a population of about 300 per
sons. This town, or city as it is call
ed, is situated at the entrance to a large
kanyon, which is about 15 miles long.
Here is where .51. r. Shorthill and party
came - last September. • Penetrating
this rugged place, whore the waters
dash from crag to crag, and pine and
cedar form a complete jungle—the
haunts of the bear, cougar, and pan
ther—nearly eight miles, they found
the object of their search. They dis
covered that the gold lay in the bed of
a small stream among the sands, and
in the crevices of the rock wherever
visible in the bottom of the stream,
while the mountain sides aro covered
with burned rock and lava. The gold
of this gulch is coarse; some pieces
taken out weigh about $B, yet that is
not a common occurrence.
As soon as they wore satisfied that
the discovery was rich, they came
down and reported it to their friends,
among whom it caused a great stir;
they were all on the point of leaving,
but the good news reversed their ac
tion, and they all followed Shorthill
into the mountains, when they were
soon convinced that gold was there.—
They staked their claims, elected
Shorthill Claim Recorder, and then
wont to work in earnest, some with
more energy than others. Shorthill
and Weaver took out in 23 days $6OO
in gold. The cold weather forced
them down out of the kanyon on the
24th day of October—.-the altitude of
which at their claims is about four
thousand feet ahclve the Yellow Stone
river. So they built houses of logs,
which are warm and comfortable.
The width of the valley at this point
is about ten miles. Game is abundant,
and consists of the cinnamon bear,
black bear, cougar, or mountain lion,
panthers, Various species of wolves,
elk, mountain sheep, black and the
white tailed deer, occasionally a buffa
lo, White ducks and geese are plenty,
also - fish, The Indiana of this valley
are the liannockS and Flat Heads.—
Two weeks ago, two families of Ban
noeks, who were eneamed near here,
and used to come into our town daily,
were saved from slaughter by the in
terference of the whites. A party of
Flat Heads, eight in number, came
into town and inquired for 13annocks,
Niko they said had stolen some of their
ponies, and they; the Flat Heads, had
come to scalp them all. A white man
immediately started out to warn the
Bannocks, who becoming alarmed,
came into town. All day and night
they watched each other for the pur
pose of murdering each other, which
they dare not do while in town. The
Flat. Heads finally left, but the others
are still in town amongst tie; they will
not go out to hunt for-fear the others
will come upon them.
Our town is very much mixed, we
have French, English, Americans, Ger
mans, Irish and Indians. I am the
only one from Wales that is in the
town. We spent three days up the
gulch last week, but wo found it im
possible tollive up there at present,snow
in places being ten feet deep, so we re
turned into the city, where we have to
lay * up till - a warmer season. Every
house has plenty of .meat for the win
ter. People aro heginuing to come in
from Virginia to secure claims for the
Summer season.. We. expect to take
out our shares of gold. the coming sea
son; then probably return to the States.
Although the prospects before us are
encouraging, yet we Would not advise
any who has comfortable homes in the
States to come out here, for I assure
them it is. a great risk. First, the In
dians on the plains; secondly, change
of climate, and bad alkali waters;
thirdly, the very long cold. winter sea
son in those northern latitudes, and
fourthly, there are not one-fourth of
the mon that come out here that make
money the first year after they ar
rive into the mountains. We have no
Post Office here, consequently we. hire
a man from the place to carry our
mail to Bozeman city—distant 40
miles, then another man takes it
through from there to Virginia city;
cost or each loiter
cents in gold dust. Each man carries a
small buckskin bag which contains his
gold dust, and at every business phice
they use gold scales, with which they
weigh the gold ; thus they trade here.
The Vigilance Committee, which was
in force at Virginia city, has now dis
bandOd; all of the people quietly sub
mitting to civil law under our now
Territorial Government. We do not
expect to work until April or May.

President Lincoln—A Day at tho
(From the Baltimore American, ot' March M.l)
Whilst on a visit to Washington,
yesterday, we dropped in at the White
House, and instead of being surprised
at the number of visitors, wore rather
astonished to find so few in waiting
in the ante-room for interviews with
the: President. When we remember
the throngs that swarmed the building
in Democratic times, during the first•
month after an inauguration, and
counting about twenty-five persons
now in attendance, many of them ac
.companied by members of Congress,
we came to the conclusion that the
Washington correspondents have
greatly exaggerated the facts: Most of
these visitors, as we subsequently had
an opportunity of witnessing, were
there for entirely different purposes
than that of office seeking.
The President commenced to re—
ceive visitors at 10 o'clock, but at half
past 11 o'clock the Cabinet session
commenced, and continued until near
ly 2 o'clock. So soon as the Cabiniet
members bad withdrawn, the recep
tion of visi',ors was resumed, •those
having me - nbers of Congress with
them taking precedence. At 2 o'clock,
however, the doors were thrown
open, and all that remained in the
ante-room were invited to enter and
take seats. The President then com
menced to dispose of them in his frank,
cordial and candid manner, the pres
ence of "a cloud of witnesses" enabling
him to get through with them much
more rapidly than if each had been
granted a private interview.
The first case was that of .an old
gentleman whose sons had been killed
in battle; and ho had come to Wash
ington in hope of being able to obtain
some kind of employment. The Pres.
ident rpliod that Washington was
the worst place in the country for
any one to seek to better their-condi
tion. and suloiroA---hio. ••to • s o home
again by the first train. Ho wished
some species of.
_saffron tea could be
administered to produce an': . Critptien
of those already in Washington'and
make this migration fever strike out
instead of striking in: The supplicant
replied that he had not the means to
go, and hoped that. the President
would give him a note to ono •of the
quartermasters, who might probably
give him some kind of employment.
After thinking a minute, 'he wrote
something on a piece of paper and
gave it to him, when the old man's
countenance brightened and with pro
fuse thanks ho retired.
A... gentleman largely engaged in
bringing out cotton, &c.; from the reb
el States, inquired of the. President
whether it was his intention to sus
tho recent order issued •by Gen.
Grant putting a stop to the whole bus
iness.' The President replied that no
case would ho interfere with the wish
es of General Grant. Ile held him re
sponsible ,for inflicting the hardest
blonis possible on the enemy, and as
desirabld as it was to Posses the cotton,
if he thought that bacon was of more
importance to the enemy at this mo
ment than cotton was to us, why we
must do without cotton. Gen. Grant
was no lawyer, and consequently - used
no unnecessary words to amplify his
order; but the President understood
him to mean that this trade was giv
ing aid and comfort tithe enemy, and
consequently it must stop. "Under no
circumstances," concluded the Presi
dent, "will I interfere with the orders
of General Grant. •
The next was an applicant for a
small, counrry post office, accompan
ied by a Democratic member •of Oen : .
grass. On reading his application he
responded at once,"Yon shall. have

cause I trouble you so little that you
so promptly grant my request. The-
President responded, "That reminds
me of my own experience as an. old l i
Whig member of Congress.. I w.as. al- I
ways in the opposition, and I had no
troubles of this kind at all. It was
the easiest thing imaginable to be an
opposition member—no running to the .

Next came an old.. gentleman who
wished to get a man pardoned from

two pairs of pantaloons and a . pair of

A young widow, the motWor of

been killed in battle, presented an ap

county, 'New :York: The - President
received her very kindly; told her to

that he would examine the matter
thoroughly, and would do the beet he
could for her case. She was advised
to return home and treat her ease im
his hands, as be would attend.to it as
well in her absence as- if she were

she must remember that he Was' but

would be a hard matter fbr him to

pleased with her interview. .`
A-wounded officer was an applicant
