The Tellurium Mine.
The public hss heard but little concern
ing this mine during the past year. 1 The
ow hers hare preferred to work on.patiently
and steadily, overcoming the difficulties
which stand In the pathway of all incipient
enterprises, without making any great
public display. - Jbvery inch of progress
that has been made in the tunnel being
cut in the mine, has been . disputed by
rock ' of the most obdurate character,
so at best, but a few feet could be made in
a day. Work has gone forward steadily
with a determination that is commendable.
There !s no doubt about the richness of the
Tellurium mine, and every one - will watch
with interest the progress made towards
lis substantial developement. Mr E.
Chase gives flattering accounts of its value
and as he has carefully examined and made
several descriptive reports concerning it,
can soeak authoritively. We expect to
publish a description ot the mine and of
the work done in a few weeks.

Last Saturday morning the day com

were lined with ; joyone groups . on their
wai to the picnic. - No better selection of
grounds could have been made, and when
the- members of the various Sabbath
schools had assembled every' arrangement
had been completed to render the occasion
one of unalloyed pleasure. The exercises
of the day were opened with tht beautiful
song, "Shall we gather at the River," by
the .congregation; prayer by Rev. A. D.
Man'ion; eong."Sailors, Pull for the Shore,"
by the congregation, " Here came the ora
tion by Hon. Binger Hermann, which was
a masterpiece of thought and eloquence.
Sweeping thruugn his entire disocuse was
a living stream of ideas, enlivened with
outbursts of crystal ized reflections, and
Bipping here and there in the fie d of tis
remarks the choice perfumery of rare flows
ers, he cast it, like a. shower of sunshine,
over the heads of his audience. Mr. Hers
m n may well feel proud of bia powerful
effort as It will long be remembered by all
those who heard him. After the oration,
'Sweet Bye and By" was rendered In an
excellent manner. Then came refresh
ments and amusements.
The afternoon exercises were opened by
an sddnss Rev. by T. B. White, of Albany,
followed by short remarks, and seasoned
with singing. .
The day passed off in a most agreeable
manner. The music under the superinv
tendency of MissLouette Grubbe, deserves
th highest praise, and a credit to the lady.
