would be glad if 1 had u full nml complete
list of lite Dimes of the ludtH dNcotercd,
and those iilrtudy tested nnd now being
successfully worked, on the Oro Finn, Wur
Lagle, and other inountiiins in thai section
of country, including what is called Flint
ilisricttomcc7ghl .miles lo the south of
Silver City, where Win. Fugus Is erecting
n large mill this spring, uud where several
other mills nre in )rogrcss. That the
Oro Fitio and War l.ugle nmuntiilns nml
the Flint district nre rich is no longer n
question to be solved; for they nre) lidding
diily nn amount of go'd nml silver bullion
that almost n'tntilshes the1 iiiiildtious tnll
liotmlrn nml plnei's n quietus on the skep
Hci' portion of Hie community. There lire
ten mills immediately iirouml the base of
the.e two mountain!. Fight of them nre
siluutcd within one uml a half mile's d s-
tatiee, nn the small branch on which Silver
City Issituited. Tho "M Incur" mill some
three-qu irters of a mile nbovc, nnd the
' Vew oik" mill near Kuliy City, sumo
three-quirlers of n mllo below, Ilelween
these two mills nre tho "Shiuinbar," the
Web-foot," tho "CiniM," tho " uss,"
the "Moore & Fogus," und tho "Lincoln,"
making in nil eight mills. Tho exact i.um
her of stamps worked In tins eight
mills, I do not now recollect, but It is
somuwhero near one hundred. Then
there is the 0. S. N. Co's. nml tho "Grim
geiback" mills, on the east of Hie Oiro
Pino mountain, on the waters ol Sinker
Creek, that (low into Suako Itivcr.om!
I do not know, or recollect now, the e.xact
number of slumps used in said mills, but it
is not less tlinu Iwenly, As to tlio rich
gold nnd silver bearing folks of the Wur
Fugle and Oro Pino mountains, I can only
eompiro them to tho ribs of nn inverted
basket, ami the dips and nngles of each
lode to tho Initio) work of tho basket
when completed. Their is no question but
that their tveuilb is beyond estiunte.
Lute last fall, just bcfoio the snow com
menced filling uml thereh) put un end to
prospecting, liiero was quite un excitement
at Silver uud Ituby Cities in regard lo the
finding of diamonds on Sinker nml Culhu
nuocrcc!8, which form u junction before
fluttiug liito'Snuko Hiver. 'Iheso creeks
have their sources in the eastern slopes of
the Oro .Pino, War Knglb nnd Flint inoiiu
tuius. The period ol tune between the dis
covery nnd the first fall of snow was so
short that it left but little opportunity for
prospecting. Tho stones found nnd sup
posed to bo diumouds, weic o a small char
aclcr but very brllliuiit, and pronounced
by tho knowing ones to be diamotids of the
first water; however, Hieo precious look
ing stones when tested by a No. 1 Lapida
ry iiiay be declared not diamonds; yet they
have created nn excitement bufllcieiil to
put thu peoplo ol Owyhee In n ferment,
euch man calculating his wealth by bun
died of thousands, to accrue from dia
monds obluiucd in tho diamond district,
that has, jn tlo Htimntion of nmn'y, al
ready promitcd to far ou rival the dia
mond mines of Itra,11.
Would at uny tlmo bo pleased to give
)ou,oriny of my old Iriends.ull tho infor
mation I can in regard to gold und silver
mining, diamonds or uny tiling else in tho
Owyhee country. W. G T'Vaixi
