A prominent Portland mining man
who is now in the Pine Creek mines,
writes to a friend as follows: says the
News. A shaft forty feet deep has
been sunk in the Union mine. The
ledge is found to be much wider than
was at first supposed, and the ore 01 a
better quality. The Whitman mine
has been bonded for $40,000. The
ledge is wide and rich. There seems
to be no tnd to the mineral wealth of
the mines, and new discoveries, some
very rich, are being made daily. A
new mill will shortly be erected at Cor

of the stones brought up are the im

stratum of cobble stones was passed
through. The soft rock in which the
stump of the tree was found, is much
like the beach at Yaciuina, in which
the rock oysters are found. Mr. Ladd
says the tree must have been 400 feet
in height, and crooked, so that after
the drill passed the top it did not
