, . - Albany, August 13, 1871
Editor Dtmvirf-tT - - - .
On account jjif ill health I have had to
throw np my petition of superintending the
sinking of the shaft on the "Young America"
lead, and yesterday arrived in thi city,
direct from Camp Creek, "Wasco county.
Thinking that perhaps1' some of your readers
might wish to hear from the mines I have
written a few lines.
I left on Friday, the 9th inst, and at that
timo everything was quiet at the mines.
Every few days some one finds a new lead
some rich and some poor and work is being
prosecuted - on most of the old ones. The
Albany companies have so far been doing
most of the work. A few days before start
ing for the valley I was over at the Mam
moth lead, and found that English Was push'
ing things along fast at that place. He was
down 53 feet at that time, and had one of the
'prettiest shafts I have ver aeon, i The rook
is spotted to some extent, , but seems to be
running into silver ore very fast, and we were
told that the assays showed that It was con
stantly getting richer as the sinking of the
shaft progressed. ' '' .
"Young America" was about 40 feet deep
and was going dowd at the rate of about one
foot per day. As the rock is very hard it re
quired a great deal of blasting to work this
lodge. Hardly any spots are found in tho
quartz taken from this ledge, silver running
through all of it. Assays made the day be
fore I left show that the ore now being taken :
out will average about $30 per ton, and these
assays were made from all the different colors !
of quartz which could be fouucL The ledge
is now about two feet wide, and widening all
the time. ... -
Story & Hitchcock have put up a good
building just below Hackleman's ranche and
are keeping a first-class restaurant, where a
hungry miner can get s square meal just aa
cheap as he can in this valley. Besides that
he can always get the latest mining news
from' them.-', r v r ? f'"'' s
Just before I came away Jerry Winter; an
old citizen of this place, discovered a new
lead on Clover Creek, about eight miles from
the "soap boles, Which assayed t24 in gold.
Hon. Tom Cornelius has just completed
his preparations, and will commence imme
diately sinking a shaft on the "Dutch Chief,"
a lead lying close to the "Young America,"
He lias the best mining outfit in that camp,
and his lead prospects well p t - -
The machinery at the "aoap holes had
been running for about ten days and Beveral
tests had been made, but tho rosults had not
been made public when I left From the
smiling countenances which some of the
officers of the company wore I would suppose
that they liaa been successful.
Wendell 4 Co. have let tlif contract for
sinking a DO-foot shaft on tho Greenhorn
ledge to Griffin ft Jackson. .This ledge was
the first one discovered in that district .
I cannot say too much in praise of Prof.
Hurley. He is the man who has held this
camp together. A grtat many persons, for
some cause or other, have been fighting this
camp ever since the first discovery was made,
and have circulated reports defaming the
character of the Professor, - However he
still maintains that the district is rich in sd-
ver, and proposes to stake his honor and his
reputation as an assayer upon the issue. No
one in Silver Wells District has the confi
dence of the people In that ' community to
such any extent as $h Professor. - He ia a
whole-souled gentleman and generous to a
fault, as'many a poor miner can testify.

Shentl' Herren was a by eomtt
uanal noiee, winch seemed to come from 15
cells n the ground floor of the jail, and
hastily lighting a caudle he want down to see
what had happened. He found the prisoners
all in the cell, aud upon being interrogated
as to what had caused the noise, they said
they had heard nothing of it . But as they
all liad their clothing on it looked rather sus
picious, and the Sheriff concluded he had
Iwtter look around a little. After going back
iuto the front room ho soon found out what
had happened... Tho prisoners'' had cut
through the walla of their cell a'tid the brick
partition, the lower part of the cut being
just even with the ilooT. when they had
cut entirely through the partition they came
to the baseboard of the front room, and as
day was already dawning and they had no
time to cut tho board off, they undertook to
kick it loose. This caused tho noiso which
awakenod the Sheriff and put a stop to
everything. The cell which tho prisoners
occupied ia built of boards laid fiat upon
each other and spiked, and through thu the
nriaoners cut with a common jack-knife.
Thoy had baeii at work for several days,
putting the. splinters and', brick in a trunk,
and keeping tho trunk up against tho hole
when any of the officers were around. Tho
notorious Frank Wyman, George Anderson
and George Daniels were the ones that were
confined in this cell, and they certainly
managed their work very welt It seems
that they wore very confident of making
tlitir escape through ilua hole, as the Sheriff
the next day found the following note writ
ten on a fly leaf of one of the hooks loaned
to them :
Dear Friends: wc, the prisoners con-'
fined in tho county jail expres our regards i
for leaving you so suden but as wo love
liberty to well to stop in this place we will
leave our place vacant for some other unfor

the ensuing year: John G. Wright, A. N.

rectors, held subsequently, J. G. Wright
was elected President, J. II. Haas, Secretary,
and J. J. Murphy, Treasurer. - The stock
holders aro well pleased with what has been
done during the past year aud the Directors
have decided to immediately commence
work again. Tho shaft that was abandoned
because of the surface water, will be sunk
deeper, thus enabling tho company to
thoroughly prospect their possession. Tho
Directors have also concluded to send the
ton of ore, recently brought down from the
mine, to Colorado to be thoroughly tosted, so
that the best process can thuif be ascertained
for saving the gold, Bilvcr and copper which is
known to exist in the ore. As soon as this
question is settled a mill will be bought and
put in operation at the mine. The ftceortt
says that from present appearances this mine
promises to be one of the best iu the State,

A prominent firm In San Franeioo, who
dc?l extensively in dried fruit, offer the fol
lowing suggestions to Oregon fruit dryorst
With the approach of the sciwwn fr dry
ing fruit in Oregon, we wish to oft'er a few
suggestions to farmers and others engaged in
this line of business, regarding the method
ami nyle ot packing, wlucn will, in our
opinion, if adborod to, result Wneh'cially to
In tho first place, iu packinff fi-uit never
mix poor and choice lots together. If you
havo two qualities of fruit, pack and mark
each S8tarately and sell on their merits. In
tlie next place "never top oil your fruit,
that is, nice Appearing fruit, when the pack
age is opened and the bottom tilled with low,
worthless trash, or a low grade fruit. Manv
instances of this kind have oomo under our
notice, and it is to the discredit of any packer
engaging in sucn a course. Always let the
face of tlie fruit be a fair index of the aver-
ure nimhtv throuirhnnt tha hnx ar hnrnu.
In the second place, actual tare should in
variably be allowed on all packages. We
have frequently seen boxes that weighed nine
pounds only tared five pounds. Purchasers
of dried fruit, as a rule, are not willing to
pay for wood at the rate of seven to fourteen
cents a poumd.
Mark olainlv on each nsekaire tlie actual
gross, tare and net, and it is always well to
mark shipper's initials also. Consignees'
name or address is not necessary.
in the third place, never, under any con
sider?) tion resort to the practice ot wetting
your fruit, if it is intended for sale in this
market. Dealers have made very grievous
complaint of Oregon dried- apples which had
been submitted to a "soaking" process just
before packiuir, and several eases are kuown
to us M'here apples in this condition have fer
mented, soured and proved a total loss. No.
gentleman, put water in your whisky, if you
will, but give us our dried apples clear.
Our long experience in nandlimi dried j
fruit, and our knowledge of the wants aud i
requirements of dealers, has given rise to
thee suggestions, which we hope will be
I remain yours truly,
