Tlio lead is extrusive, nnd it is thought the

There is known to lie silver in vurlon por

it can.
A Tik Rack. The mulch race between
the cicam-cfilorod horse "Tex," and Simp
son's " Africnnu-.," over tlic Rybee Coiiire.
on Saturday last, single dash of a mile, for
live hundred dollars a side, resulted in a tie
so declared by the Judges. Time. 1 :."".
At tlio call of lime lor second trial, Simp
son refused to run his horse, claiming that,
ns the race was a tie, the wagers should be
tdrawn ; but "Tex" galloped around the
course, and it i claimed by Ins Iricnds that
he has won the money. The matter is yet
Undecided, nnd the wngeivs remain in the
hands of tho stake-holder.
Rtni Quartz. Wc learn from good mi
nority that the quartz load rrcently
hrought to light by Mr. D. Rirdscyu anil
Mr. Griffin, on Grcve Creek, gives prom
j.'os of wealth to its owners. It is about
three weeks now since tliis Ir-nd was struck,
einee which tirco rich rock has been stead
i.y tnkeii out. About n week since, our
5)iformnnt tells 113, Mr. Rirdscyu felt assur
ed there was 8-1,000 in the pile of quail;,
then excavated and ready for crushing.
Those who have visited nnd otherwise be
come neqninlcd with tlio lead consider it
1 ho most vahmhlo now being worked in
this county. Numerous claimn have been
staked off on tho lino of tlio lode, one of
which, half a mile distant from the Rlrds

Chicago, Illinois), May 18, 18G3.
Ed. SkntimcIj-Dear Sir: Here wft
are, Imck in America, once more, after nn
j n'wiico of twelvo years, and oh ! what a
ehiniire lias Veen wrougln h the. people und
country in thut time. I could scarcely be
lieve my own eyes. It seem1 very strnnue.
Where T knew everybody and every house,
now I don't even know the streets, nnd
don't see one fntnlllinr face out of n tlmu
sand. Those that were boys when I left
here, nrc now young men doing business
on their own responsibility. Tlioe that
were young men then, arc now over the
summit, running on the down grade, with
whitened locks how sad.
This is decidedly a great place for busi
ness. Every place in town is full to over
flowing, especially hotels, and all kind, of
business is first-rate : in fact, never was
better. The war lias rather helped Chi
coen. There nre n great many fine briek
and stone buildings going up hero this
summer. They Fiuvo some very fine pri
vate residences in this place, ns line. I pre
sume, ns any in America. It's really a
big sight to sec tlio vast amount of shippinc
nnd railroading done here. There must at
least fifty vessels come In per day, besides
steamers, propellers and land bonis. There
are nn less than six large pnrnger depots,
besides freight depots without number.
One or two ptcn-mrc parties come in nn the
. ears every week, nnd if there's not more
1 than five or six thoiiMind passengers, in
fifteen minutes after tliev arrive vnu would
not notice thorn was any increase in tlio
population. Every place of iimii'cment
in t lie city is crowded to ovorllowing every
iiiahi. Wanes arc good, and every body
has uiotiev (ueli ns it is). There are a
great many young ladies employed in dif-
r,.r,. t,..;.!,.., of 1....I..PM. ...!'. ,., ,.wi
in fancy dry foods shop., anil i tinning uni
i chinos of dilf'rent kind''.
An regards financial nfi'iirs, money is
1 plenty, such n it is : hut ils (nicer looking Wo '.elii've mm of tho craH did get tightly
! ,'. .. n .i .. i s git, a few davs ago. and t io fo owin is
trash to mo. It s nil on paper with-wo n J ,lo or III p.ii.T tin- noxt .1..v : Yes
promise to pay," etc.; but then it goes just u,nllV morning, ut -t o'clock p. in. n small
as well as nnv, and buvs everything a per-
son wnnts. so "what's the hodd.V'f-olongns
the people have tlio con-fl-dencc. Green
backs appear to lake the preference, and
even the (,'oppei heads, if they have nnv
greenbacks. If wo want to see how the
war is progressing, nil we have to do is to en
quire the price of gold. The Wall street
gamblers appear In bo the great center.
and little places liko this vibrate to their
their tune, which now varies from forty
eight to fifty per cent. They play a des.
Derate game, sot to tho music of financial
flirtations, witli variations according n
they can piny upon the fears and fancies
of tlio populace.
The war don't nppenr to effi-ot this city
in tlio least ; on the contrary, it lias mndo
business bettor.
he few that have gone
i to the war nro not missed, and you soo but
fi,w I"8 rf0'1 ln motirnliw.
All np-
! pear to be gay and trying to hurry them-
1 seines through the world on the fastest nnd
shortest route.
Our Geneml Hooker seems to be (he
General of the tinny just now. Rut gen
erals are made up and made down on short
notice now-n-days, and there's no telling
where ho will bo in a week. If ho was
only a little farther from Washington lie
, would do well enough, but you know "too
; many cooks spile thu broth," etc.
j The news wo get here now-n-days is
moro cniiflcting than what you get out
there. One day ils Richmond that's taken,
sure, nnd the next day ils Washington.
And so it goes, a sort of sen-saw gama that's
ot "ciiintu.Nuhlo" to outsiders. It puts
ino in "' of ,lic Oregon war of 18.1:1-0
Tlioo that huvo got " u good thing" don't
want to soo the war closed np. These
American people nn? getting entirely too
p"1"1' ' "7 want tuning down a peg or
two. 1 mil sorry to sny there arc many here
who call themselves Americans who nro en
tirely unworthy of the name.
There is going to bo the largest emigra
tion across tho plains tliis spring there has
been sinco Mil. Most of the emigrants are
from Wisconsin, Iowa, und Illinois. They
aro talcing a good deal of stock.
T have traveled some through Wiscon-
j sin, Towa and Illinois. As a general thing
the (ipring crops look very well. Rut this
country has been wheukd so much, that
tlio article of Winter Wheat is about
played out, and there is but little raised.
The grain they raise heio is not half so
plump ns what they raise in Oregon. Its
on a par with their paper money mighty
light. Its nil very weH for people, on the
Pacific coast to come here on n visit infer ex
cursion, but wifli my experience I must
eonfess tlic chahces am? hardships of tho
jfltirnoy will denriy pay for the pleasure.
There mo going to be pretty lively tinvs
here this summer. Many huge convention',
One can sec nwro here itv n week thnn
they can hr Oregon in u life-time. Rut,
then, wlmt does it nil amount too. Its all
"vanity, vanity."' 'Hie weather here
changes every fifteen- minutes. The thun

hard winters don't agree with the consti
