To a man of- vivid imagination the tiled
would be nbnut the same.
I!o ! ye that havo seizors, bowie-knlvrs,
or axes lo grind, don't trust to self-sharpen-
lug, but go lo tho Arkansas -Mill, over the
way. They havo employed the "Gods who
grind slowly, but very tine." Tho Union
Leaguers intend to employ them to sharpen
their knives for "midnight a'sasBlnntions."
If the "Gods" grind fast enough, tho work
of death will soon commence. Each mem
ber is pledged by a "midnight oath" to as
salnato n "Democrat" nt 'midnight," af
ter which ho is to bo hurried off to Arkan
sas. A pilot who has made his way from
Arkansas under slmllnr circumstances
would lie considered a valuable acquisition
to the League
"Soun Gripus.'' Tho Richmond En
qirtr says that In tho capture of Vleksbtirg
tho Federals havo become possessed of an
elephant on dear terms; that it will require
200,000 Federal soldiers to hold tho river,
and asmmics to be rejoiced that I'cmber

useless'' task of holding VIckshurg, and

If tho possession of the great Father of

FA. Sentinel : My purpose today will bo
to lay beforu'those Interested In qdurlz min

Tho oplnl'bh I have of "the1 Ipueivwhiotf
have been discovered up to tho present time
and worked In the neighborhood 4of 'Apple
gate, Itoguc lliTcr, Gold Hill, etc., Is this :
that they nro fissure veins that Is. that
when the up-throw of tho system of ledges
took place the earth was rent in every di
rection by Ihb volcanic force. Thu true
gold-bearing qunrlz ledges of Southern Ore
gon nro, according to my calculation, Imme
diately west of !( longitude, running north
rind south. These ledges conn; up, it would
seem, nt the point of contact of Ihu trnp
n,nd sedimentary rocks nt a naliii-al opening
in tlicearth's surface. When tho rocktf weru
displaced, nnd removed apart cufllcleut to
admit thoso ledges, as a consequence the
eoiiciifslon wm felt probably for many
mill's. The volcanic crust uf tho earth
swelled up and was rent in every direction ;
openings were made regardless uf polarity,
and theso fisuro were filled with pay-quartz,
but of nchnraoter evidently diflerent from
the true ledge-". (Wo have samples of
quart?: from the Fnterprisc quartz ledge
which Is beyond doubt n true ledge on-j
llruly different from the nbove named.)
These veins, of course, 'ould be tho nar
rowest nt tho bottom, just as they have been
found,1 und of limited depth, hence so many
have proved failures. 1 wither these con
clusions or principles from 'an examination
of various works on quartz mining, com
pared with our ledges.
The Into ledge Is to bo found always nt
tho point of contact of thu volcanic nnd
seduientary locki. A tunnel run nt any
depth, no matter how deep, aiming for tho
centre of thu highest out-crop cutting Ihu
ledgo nt right angle, of course will never
fall of success, for tho deeper you go tho
better the ledgo will be found to bo devel
oped and tho better It will pay. Again : u
true ledgo holds a persistent course, follow
lowing tho parnllellsm of the neighboring
mountain chain, which hero Is nbotit north
and south, bearing n little towards tho east.
Outfldo of the true ledges will bo found
otter ledges running at nil points of the
compnss, having a dip as diverse ns the
course, frequently the hanging walls being
detached and well deliued. Theso ledges,
decrease In power ns they descend, nnd nil
h.ivu the distiugubhtng characteristics that
tho two walls of the ledgo nre of thu same
iinllorm character of rock It may Im trap,
or it may bo sedimentary, it is Immaterial
which. The uniformity of character of
wall rock Indicates only that it is a fluro
vein, thu rock having been rent und filled
and closed up ngnin nt the bottom, making
a V-shaped vein. Theso veins pay flrs-t rate
at the out-cropping, but have not tho "bot
tom." Hence, becauxe n ledgo assays well,
or shows rich In metal at (ho out-crop, it is
no safe indication of true merit, but to tho
mind of experienced miners nnd eminent
iQlncrologists, it is greatly to bo distrusted.
' Why cu-nya differ so widely from practi
cal working result!), wo aro not prepared to
say, tiuco tho gold is not formed ns an ox
ide. It is well known that an assay as u
reputed valluo of a mine, and ns ordlunrlly
mndo by selecting a small cholco piece of
rock, is not to bo relied upon ; and this
may bo the entire secret. Uut wero there
oxides, which llro and fluxes would bo re
quired to reduce to 'metallic form, it might
ful'y explain it. Tho principal indications,
then, it would eccm, which nre to guide
ono in determining thu,. expediency of ex
pending money in prospecting a ledge nre,
the character of the bed-rock, and the posi
tion of thu ledge in relation to them. That
is, whether the ledgo Is at tho point of con
tact of volcanlo nnd sedimentary rock,
or cutircly encased iu either' of them. Thu
ledge Iu the former position will contain
the metal in eulphurets, and metal In thu
latter In metallic form alone, of result prob-
nbly of tho passage through tho bed-rock to
the surface. Iu trap bed-rock wo always
find " pocket 'ledges" in California. Iu
slnto bed-rock wo' find the quartz lying in
lenticular masses, tho metal being in pock
et. Hut at the point of contact of tho trap
and slate, we find tho true ledge, or mother
ledge, of this slate, containing gold alloyed
with 12 per cent, of silver, iu tho form of
lino gold and sulphurets.
It Is a mooted question whether quartz
veins nro tilled from abovo by Infiltration,
or from below by volcanlo injection. Tho
nrticlo ubove shows that tho latter opinion

s, as an almost universal rule, to be eought
y for at the out-crop of thu hill, and not iu
tho low-lnnds and iavini'8. Hence wo con
clude that thu ledge Hint if, that the vol
canic force that bring? up the ledge makes)
the hill. To statu the mutter n little differ
ently : supposo.tlmt the ledge Is forced to
the surface, a,'MfeeV'6f 'molten quartz, tulles

that point, making a bill, leaving a ravine,
of course, nnd in which deep linking would
be required to rench the ledge, and yet it
would bu found cropping on the hill.
This question of topography is n vital
ono In quart, mining, and should not for a
moment be lot Sight of, nnd the more it is
studied nnd apprehended, together with
Ihu chemical character nnd geological posl
t'on of the surrounding rock, the more ccr
lain we nro of successful results to our la
bors. Accompanied with the above. I endeavor
to give you n few Ideas from this locality.
