-The last Denver News has a letter from Virginia Ulty, Idalio, dated March lOth, whioh is latur than anything yet published. The correspondent says : Business is dnll The minos are only paying expenses. The cause is the unsettled state of the we ther. A few weie sluieing, and othcrs were drifting, hut the expeni-e of taking out the dust is so great in winter that but little is realized ubove expenses. When money is takeu out, every one is flush and business goes merrily on But when expenses arnnunt to as tnuch as tnuuh as tlie actual su tu taken out, it is the reverse ; tberefore the cause of the tightness of the times. Flour was selling at $32 to $34 per cwt; mëal, $10; hams, 66c; butter, $1.10; candles, $1.25; salt, 90c. perlb; whisky is plenty. The Paris Times correspondent thitike little importanco cfln be attwched to the resolutions passed by the Washington House oí liepresentatives relativo to Mexico, at last pending the civil war.
