IMCUIPTIOX OF ALASKt-ITS ULACIEIM
AMI ITS COLD FIELD.
The fifth lecturp of the present cours
given by the Sacramento Literary In
stitute was delivered at the Congrega
tional Church last evening by John
Muir, his subject being: "Alaska; Its
Glaciers, Forests, Gold Fields, etc."
There was a fair attendance, and the
attention paid evinced a desire on the
part of his hearers to know something
of that jountrv. Tlie speaker a-Lpted
the conversational tonp, and his narra
tion was straightforward and unstudied
the picture of what he had seen seem
ing to have been vividly impressed upon
his mind. In his description of the
geography of loer.litie.s he used a
number of original sketches which he
had taken. He said that thirteen years
ngo, when the Territory was purchased,
many thought it a useless country,
where only polar hears lived and ice
bergs formed th land, but it was now
proved to have noble foiests, magnifi
cent fisheries, valuable golj and ilver
mi'ie.", aruLtha tnd.wriir-Ljvi gone
far towards paying for ihe'jmiclmse.
its arfa is about thrf.eimes
As great ns that of California, its coast
line being of great length, and it con
tains forty rivers, the principal of which
is the Youcon, 2,000 miles in length,
and being navigable for a distance of
1,500 miles, and 50 miles wide at its
mouth. The coast range of Alaska is
from 10,000 to 15,000 feet high for a
a distance of 500 miles, up and down
the coait. As compared to the Alaska
range, the Sierra Ne.vadas sink into
insignificance. The range seems to be
a number of chain groued alongside
each other. From one place I counted
over 200 immense glaeiers. The spaces
Itetween the peaks are filled with flow
ing, grinding ice, which continually
modifies the architecture of the grand
structures. More beautiful scenery
than that along the inland lakes was
never seen. Along the Youcon river
But the g audest are found in the
south-eastern portion. I saw a raft
there composed of ten trees 120 feet "n
length nnd two feet in diameter at the
small end. They are principally spruce
and pine trees. The wood is of excel
lent quality, and when its qualities are
known there will be a great demand
for it. Some of these trees are 150
feet high and 8 feet in diameter four
feet from the base. All the channels
through south easternlaska are filled
with salmon. There is ono quartz
mine in the Territory, where ores can
lie worked cheaply, the temjierature
not being cold enough to prevent their
lieinr. worked. At Sitka this Winter
the thermometer has not been lower
than 8deg aliove zero. There are also
a few placer mines, where a miner can
earn 53 or S4 jier day. For five years
the mining industries in the British
Territory near by have employed about
1,000 men. There the mercury falls to
seventy degrees below zero
So that only for a few months can
work be done.. The gravel mines, how
ever, are far richer than any ever
found in California. All this shows
that the gold bearing district extends
from Mexico to 60deg Nonh, and per
hnps even further. Along the coast
the ground is densely covered with
brush ami moss, so that the prospector
has great trouble in working the soil.
The seals are found on a group of
islands to the west. All through the
mountains are found various species
of goats, some of which are unknown
elsewhere. Deer fairly cover the
islauds of the Archipe.go 'the south
eastern part of-tho Tf rritoryi
polar bears are not found,
Unless on the extreme northern coast.
Black bears and wolves, however,
abound. There are many varieties of
birds. The inland waters are resorted
to by ducks and geese in great numbers.
The Indians of Alaska are an interest
ing jieople. I visited various tribes,
who were kind and hospitable. There
are about 40,000 of them in the Terri
tory. Among some of the tTibcs there
is an old-timed v system of slavery.
Captives in war liecome slaves, and
their children are reared in bondage.
The principle articles of food among
the Indians are turnips, potatoes and
In speaking of glaciers he gave nn
interesting sketch of their, formation
from snow in the mountains, gradually
rolling down, packing and becoming
transparent ice. In Alaska, in addi
tion to the great glaciers that roll down
to the sea, there is a fragment of the
ice-sheet that once covered the country.
He had seen there four or five thousand
glaciers, ten of which flowed as rivers
into the sea. One of them was
THREE MILES WIPE
At the mouth, and moved one foot per
hour, discharging an iceberg over the
wall into the sea about every four min
utes. The glacier, or ice river, is ubout
one mile deep. In a journey of 700
miles in a canoe fully 100 miles were
made by pushing through waters liter
ally crowded with btoken ice. It
seems strange to see ice flowing down
through valleys filled with evergreen
growth, and bushes loaded with ripe
Iterries hanging into the frozen river.
The lecture was concluded with some
interesting Statements concerning the
manlier in which icebergs have cut the
land into islands, and how it has worn
away great mountains, and to what ex
tent the Territory is being conquered
by the sea by this grinding, wearing
action. "Record Union."
The most astonhhiiig thing in the
way of a timepiece is a clock described
by a Hindoo raj.ih as belonging to a
native prince of Upper India, and jeal
ously guarded as the rarest treasure of
his luxurious palace. In front of the
clock's disk was a gong, swung uji
on iioles, ami near it was a pile of ar
tificial humai limbs. The pile was
made up of the full number of partr
for twelve perfect bodies, but all lay
heaped together in seeming confusion.
Whenever the hands of the clock indi
cated the hour of 1, out of the pile
crawled just the numlier of parts need
ed to form the frame of one man, jiart
jointing itself to part with quick, me-
talic click; aud when completed, the
JSgure sprung up, siezed a mallet, and,
walking up to the gong, and struck
one blow that sent the sound pealing
through every room and corrider of
that btately castle. This done, he re
turned to the pile and fell to pieces
again. Vhen 2 o'clock came, two men
arose and did likewise; a.nd so through
all the hours of the day, the number
of figures being the same as thu num
ber of the hour, till, at noon and mid
night, the entire heap sprang up, and,
marching to the gong, struck one after
another, each his blow, making twelve
in all, and then fell to pieces.
Crime in Germany. According to
Herr von Puttkammer, the Prusian
Minister of Education, there has been
a steady increase of crime and immor
ality in the towns of Germany during
the last ten years; and the minister
declared in Parliament the other day
that this unsatisfactory state of things
had not been without etl'ect on the
teachers of elementary schools, except
in Berlin. This was to be attributed
in a considerable measure to the in
creased facilities for drinking, which
had len provided by recent legisla
tion, and which had injuriously adeet
ed all sections of the community.

T1IE tiCIII.IFFi:U ni.E.
The following account of the Tomb
stone mine in Arizona, discovered by
Ed ScheifTelin of this county is found
in the "Record-Union"' of March 16th.
He named the district "Tombstone,"
having- been warned that the result of
his explorations, would be the erection
of a stone to his memory by some fu
ture yrositer in that region:
The town of Tom'osVov. ia dutiful
ly located on. a high undulating mesa,
at the base of the hills in which the
rich mines are found ; in fact, some of
the mines are within the city limits, and
the famous Tough Nut corners near the
businesss center. -The town consists
of 640 acres, being one mile in length
from northeast to southeast, and half
a mile wide. Business lots on the
main street, 40x120, rale from 800
to 1,500; on the next street at 300
to 400. The town was 'aid out by a
company of whom "Mike" Gray was
the agent and manager. Mr. Gray
w s our first Justice, mid became the
senior Judge of the piace. Judge
Gray was formerly Sheriff of Plumas
county, and hits many friends in Sacra
mento and all parts of the State, who
will be pleased to hear of "his prosperi
TOUCH NUT MINE
Is the pioneer of the camp, and to its
bountiful yield of argeutum the camp
is indebted for its pitsnt name, fame
and prosperity. The claim was dis
covered by Ed. Scheiflviiu, a prospect
or whoso name will go down to poster
ity with Marshall aud Comstock as
the discoverer of the mines that added
millions to the wealth of the nation.
Richard Gird, now the manager of
this property was associated with him
in the location. Through the ellorts
of A. P. K. Sall'ord, the Messrs. P.
F. Corbin were "nduced to investigate
the milling projcrties of Gird &
ScheifTelin, and .liecomintr -satisfied as
tnined, enteted into negotiations, re
sulting in the Tombstone Mill and
Mining Company, aud for the transfer
to thu company of the foil-wing min
ing claims: The Tough Nut, West
Side, Defense, Goodenough and Sur
veyor, each being full 1,500 by 600
feet claims, except the last, it having
but 135 lineal feet, thus making the
area of mining grounds 79.19 aues.
These properties were the first in
Tombstone that were located, claimed,
surveyed and wcrked by their discov
erers, who are now members of said
company, hence no questions of title
THE ORE B0DIF.S
In these claims lie iu prophyry, or be
tween prophyry and lime. In connec
tion with the eins or lodes Irregular
masses of rich mineral matter are
found. On the surface of these claims
two very distinct ore-l earing ledgt s
can bo traced. One crosses the West
Side and Surveyor, entering the Tough
Nut, and the other crossing the De
fense and entering the Tough Nut
claim, and both probably centering in
the vast ore-bodies therein found. A
largo number of shafts and cuts have
jienetrated these veins J.roving their
existence. Iu ail these mines the ores
contain horn silver and plain chlorides,
as also jiercentages of lead ores. The
chlorides are disseminated in clay slate
calsites, Larytes and oehraceous varie
ties of brown iron ore; the lead is
found chiefly in the salts of lead, car
bona'.e or cerusitc perdomitiating.
Nearly all the oares carry gold, in
iu some cases amounting to 4,000 but
the average is only 9 per ton.
THE MEAN AVERAGE ASSAY
Of the battered pulp thus far reduced
at the companyVi mill has been 139
per ton. The ore works free averag
ing 75 per cent., the tailings being
saved, and will after exposure, on a
second working yield 60 to 70 jier
cent of the remainder. The ore bodies
in sight in these claims, uoii a recent
measurement by competent experts,
was estimated to be over 3,000,000,
to which is to be added the value of
pay ores on the dumps, 50,000, and
tailings at the mill 60,000. In work
ing the mines some blasting is requir
ed, but the principal jiay ores, which
are chlorides and carbonates, require
only pick and shovel. Very ljtle tim
bering has been required, and no water
has been encountered. The hoisting is
douo by steam engines at the main anri
northwest shafts, at which are plat
forms from which the ore is loaded in
to wagons, to be hauled to the mills.

Mill and mining opuations ore carried
on all the year roujj. Tlie following
is a approximate of th" explorations of
said mines : Tough Nut, 730 feet; lev

feet; levels, 419; cuts, 45; West Side,
113 feet; Defense, 13-foot shaft; Sur

cost of operating the mine and mill iw
per tou is as follows; Mining, S2.G0;
transporting to m'riV, S4.J&; reducing,
5; total 11.65. The mill belonging
to this Tombstone Mill and Mining
Company is located at Charleston,
about ten miles distant from the mines,
where the company own a 500-acre
tract of land lying on the right bank
of the San Pedro river, the waters of
which, from a substantial dam, are
conducted by ditch and flume and
utilized for driving a turbine, the mo
tor of the mill. The mill is a ten
stamp wet-crusher, resting upon rock
foundations, constructed on the most
approved plan, w-orks like a clock, and
cost 80,000. The company has sccur.
ed the sole right of water to the So
nora line, which they value at 100,
000, as it saves from 60 to 70 per
day over steam power. The capacity
of the mill is twenty-five tons per day,
but they have ample ore in sight for a
forty-stamp mill. Both mining and
milling operations are superintended
by Richard Gird. The mill has been
in operation about six months; henco
it will be seen that the 'production of
bullion has lieen over 300,000 up to
this date. Tlie figures I have givun
herein are taken from actual surveys,
assays and measurements.

getting married. They did not return,
and were soon forgotten' iu the circles
in which they had moved. Even their
relatives lost sight of them. A few
days ago, while a woman was singing
and dancing in a concert caloon at
Milwaukee, she was told that her hus

room. It" was common for him. to get
drunk, and she attached little impor

father, and found him dying from a
fractured skull. He was the once

former belle, Miss Harvey, and had
turned her accomplishments to account
in a low form of show business.
The hound is the most interesting
dog. How solemn and long-visaged ha
is how peaceful and well-disposed )
He is the Quaker among dogs. All
the viciousness and currishness seem
to have been weeded out of him; ha
seldom quarrels, or fights, or plays,
like other dogs. Two strange hounds,
meeting for the first time, behave as
ci' illy toward each other as two mon.
I know a hound that has an ancient,
wrinkled, human, far away look that
reminds one of the bust of Homer
among the Elgin marbles. Ho looks
like the mountains toward which his
heart yeans so much.
