Jon'phlne County Keus to depend in a
great measure upon tbe success of the cop
per mining operations which nre now be
ing carried on. That (hey will realize the
highest anticipations of their proprietors,
but few in this vicinity seem to doubt. I,
for one, although I have nut a solitary
"foot" in nny of them, will venture to
prophesy llmt in five years not less than
two hundred men will be ecgaged In tak
ing out copper ore In this county, and as
many more employed in outside work, such
as teaming, wood-cutting, smelting, etc.,
connected therewith. Who can say what
the result may be in ten or twenty yearst
A small piece of pure copper was found
In n sluice, here In Sailor Diggings, as
long1 ogn as 56. Copper wus also found,
about that lime, on Ihe Illluois River, neur
where tbe Fall Creek vein Is now being
worked. Rut there was too much Gold
in the country, then, for people to core
anything about copfr,,
Titc first indications, of what seemeel lo
be s vein of .copper ewe, were 'discovered
by a wan reamed J lea wee, in 'SO, on hill
two miles west of Waldo, In the immediate
vicinity of the now- celebrated Queen of
Bronze) lead. Thiamine bo been for the

more than any one else, our county is In

question; and J presume there can be none
In regard to the opportunities nDorded to
make it an Immense profit, lit. De. Hier

Jurdon, Chiles, Moore, aud othcrs.who have
made a trail through tu the coast, near the

respect to that of Crescent City, und Is the

Hie ore from both these vclus Is of tbe

I omitted to mention that the thickness
nf the vein of copper bearing rock, In the

Rut little guld Is being taken out In this
vicinity at present, on .account nf n scare

the minis urc altogether "worked out."
As among tho best claims here, I will

All these claims hare beeu worked for

Dy the way, wages here are 83 SO per day
