Corn is now worth, in cash, from 45 to 50

Thomas A. Kirk : ' .
Dear Brother I have had my health
better 'out here than I have' had for'the
last fifteen years.
1 have been searching tor goiu an wm-
fer, and I have found it at last. One of
my crowd has just returned from out of
the mountains and found a place where
he can take three hundred colors to the pan.
Get one or two good mules and pack
through. , Do not wait to join any com
pany ; one or two men are as many as I
would want. . -
Provisions are as cheap here as you can
buy them and haul them.
Do not pay any attention to men coming
back disheartened, for they are too lazy
to work good mines, when they find them.
You need not bring any picks or shovels
as I have plenty of them.
Direct your letters to Denver City, K.
T,, via Ft. Laramie.
Your most affectionate brother, -E.
Mr. T. A. Kirk, brother of the writer
of the above letter, gives the names of
good and reliable men, to authenticate
the truthfulness of the writer. The refer
ence of these men are commendable to
the public confidence; they are as fol
Geo. W. Lewis,
Col. B. Hartwell,
Gentry, Co,, Mo.
Mr. Kirk has repeatedly written in
favor of the South Platte route, but as the
letters have been mislaid we cannot pre
sent them to our readers.
The Election. The election on Mon
day for City Officers passed off quietly,
and resulted in the choice of B. B. Frazer
for Mayor, A. C. Bevan for Marshall,
and John Martin for Assessor. Almost
an entirely new Council was elected.
Holt Co. Jwirs.
The Next Census. Provision was
made in the Civil Apropriation bill at the
late session of Congress for the prelum
nary arrangements for taking the. 6th
Census under the existing law. The Presi
dent will no doubt soon appoint a Super
intendent for the work." The Secretary
of the Interior will follow the plan of the
last Census in reference to statistics, un
less Congress order .otherwise. The ap
portionment of Representatives, "it will
be recollected, is settled by existing law.
The number of "members of the House
was placed at 333, allowing additional
Representatives for new States.
A few years since. Chili was the great
rram market .of the whole Pacific coast.
Now the current is changed and the young
giant of California is already shipping
cargoes of flour and beans to that country.
San Francisco. It is a litte funny
that where gold is so plenty, money should
be so scarce, but this is the case at the
present line in San Francisco.

Glenn Rock Mills. r j
We hereby acknowledge the receipt of:
a handsome and su!itaritial present- t'rom
Alix. IIax.lam, Ksq., proprietor of the
Glenn Rock Mills ia this county; laid
present being in the shape cf a sack of
superfine our and another of extra fine
corn meal. Although such presents merit
what we newspaper folks call a "big puff,"
yet we shall not en consequence do so ; the
quality. of flour jmd meal produced by the
above named mills, since put in operation.
is too. well understood and appreciated in
the county to need a newspaper puff. We
may.be permitted, however, to add our
individual testimony -by saying we have
used the Glenn- Rock flour and meal con
stantly since Mr. Hallam commenced
operations, and are free to -say we never
used better. It is on sale at Crane &
Hills, Main street,' in this city.
Pcafcod) Proline Corn.
If our farmers consult their interest
they will send to John Gaenett & Co.,
Louis, Mo., for a supply of seed of
the famous Peabodxfs Prolific Corn. It
ripens from two to four weeks earlier than
the common varieties, and produces very
much more to the acre. All who raised it
in the vicinity of St. Louis last year got
over 100 bushel to the acre.' It. is a fine
hard white corn; excellent ,fcr bread or
stock- The stocks yield a large amount
of fodder, -'.anchfrom 5' to 7 ears to the
stock. . ' "
The Mails. -
Some how or other our mail has been
very irregular of late. '. The Northern
and Southern mails have entirely failed
the past week. We hear that the com
pany has "busted." No wonder, at the
price they took the contract. It wouldn't
surprise us "to hear of other contractors
going by the board for the same reason.
Mr. Joseph, Schittz has almost com
pleted a new building on Main street, in
which he intends to open out a stock of
Clocks, Jewelry, notions," &c. Joe is , a
clever industrious , and meritorious young
man and we wish him success.
Jim Coleman has been appointed by
the new Council, City Marshall; so now
look out ' you young chaps who "raise
h 11 on general principles." Jim is pro
vided with "Juniatta Boots" for in door
accommodations, and picks and shovels
for out door amusement.
For the Housewife-
On the first page we have have been
publishing for several weeks a column of
"Family Receipts."-' They are valuable
and reliable. We shall continue until
the whole of a pamphlet, entitled " Five
Hundred Valuable Family Receipts," is
published. These alone are worth more
than the subscription price of the Adver
tiser a year.
E. A. Ogden.
The excellent steamer E. A. Ogden, Cap
tain Lee, and Cl'k Douglass, reached our
wharf, from St. Louis, on Saturday last.
As usual Brownville received a good
share of freight and passengers. This is
the Ogden's first trip this season. We
have the best of authority for saying this
boat is "A No. 1;" her officers gentle
manly and attentive and understand their
business. Success to them. Mr. Douglass
will accept our thanks for favors.
We have upon our table, for April, the
Great Republic monthly.Cosmopolitan Art
Journal, Ballou's Dollar monthly, Ladies
National Magazine, ;Ladies' American
Magazine, Atlantic monthly, Ladies' Re
pository, Arthur's Home Magazine and
Godey's Lady's Book. The limited space
in our columns, prevents extended notices
this month. They are all good, as usual.
This new Steamer in this trade made

The clerk will accept thanks for favors.
A great event in the beau-mode of

The ladies present wore upon their presons

Den has returned with a rousing stock
