LETTER FROM MOIIA VE COUNTY.
OKitnAT, T., April 20, 1871.
Kihtob' Mi.sifh: A, friend of yours prc
vallel upon ino to write a letter to thu
Mlstmou lii Mialf giving as a rvann the
pleasant fiction nf nn attack of sun-stroke,
soliciting of the brain, niut nervous hytuiia
all combined. Not fur a moment doubting
your "occtviioit.il oirritHHMltntV condition,
and wMiing to humor linn, I submit the fol
lowing its the nlily item of Intercut which'
have come under my inpfctioii, trusting
that you will 1roinpt'ly tt-ji-et the d.'itne ntiil
every" part thereof, us t'liu inwyt r would say,
as a jint punishment for your trieud's 'cussed
ncss.' MINIMI MJTTKIl.t.
The writer, in company with two or three
prominent ccntleincn of this place vMtctl a
few of the mines in tho vicinity ol Stockton,
a few days since, and was highly gratified
with thu result.
We llrst visited tho "C3'' mine, situate
about three miles from ibn town. This
mint has been always regarded us one of tho
best in this camp. The vein is well tlelined,
and has been a paying initio from the day
the first pick was stuck into it, and all the
development no far has been without tho aid
of any outside capital. There is a tunnel of
about jU feet run on the vein, anil nt the
tnouK (" tho tunnel a shaft sunk MC feet in
depth, exposiug a continuous fiisurovcin and
ulsH L'rauo ore throughout. Another con
tract lias been let to sink the shaft to 200
feet. About flvo tons of high grade ore is
lying on the dump, ready for shipment. It
will ccr'tainiy work 1,000 per ton. There
are about two hundred tons 'of second-class
ore on tho dump, which will average $-00
per ton. This mine has shipped over thirty
tons of first-class ore, varying from S300 to
SI. 000 per ton. And hero let mo at once
insist that shipping ores is a very unprofita
ble and unsatisfactory business. The profit"
to tho miner or owner, when it is recollected
that $300 ore pays only about 52 per cegt in
San Francisco, amounts to but very little,
when the cost of extraction, shipping, etc.,
is taken into account.
JJut having promised to indite a lctlecpn.
current news, I will simply tell what I have
seen and let the reader draw his own conclu
sions. Immediately adjoining or extending north
erly from the "C3" mine, is the Washington.
A contract has been let on this mine to sink
,50 feet from tho present shaft. Tho con
tractors aro doing well and extracting a con
siderable quantity of first-ctttss ore. This
mine will ship four or Jive tons of 500 ore
in a short time; Three shifts working night
From tho Washington we skirted along
the mountain to the McKenzie mine, a recent
discovery. Three men working on the mine
and extracting very fine ore, which I am in
formed averages between 3500 and SS00 per
ton. The mine is small on tho top, but at a
depth of 20 feet is widening, yet maintaining
its high grade sondition.
From tho McKenzie wo went to the Littlo
Chief. This. .mine is now owned by Gus
Gatewodd,' an old Pioche prospector. Ho
having faith in tho min,c has stood manfully
by it. 3Ir Garwood has made several ship
ments, but the last, I am authorized to say.
went up in tho thousands. Ho is riow mak
ing another shipment, and of still higher
grade ore. Tho shaft on the Littlo Chief,
from whence this ore has been extracted, is
shu experienced miner, is certainthathe
lias a tortuno In the Little Chief.' I hope so;
for if pcrscvercnco and real good qualities
constitute tho criterion of success, Gus is
6Urely entitled to a "full hand."
Tho Jackson; Reindeer, Fresno and others
in this same hill we did not visit, but they
one and all resemble in their general char

mines, and all have (heen and are now ship-

The Tigress mine is now being worked by
Robert Upton and Robert Gray, both good
miners, good citizens and good fellows. Tho
mine looks well. The boys intend to ship

Tho other important event is tho lato de
velopments niado in the Kcystono mino at
Mineral Park, This mine is sunk on now to
a denth of 112 feet ; the shaft is 5 by 7 and
the bottom is ono mass of ore ten fir.rkntK

oro is oi a very uign graue, showing ruby and
native silver throughout every portion. Bob
Stein, tho competent superintendent, Is a
lucky fellow, but with such lieutenant a4
Kelly, Jackson. Riley und Collins, there
could bo no such word as fail,. 1 understand
that Mr Stoln is about going to San Fran
ci3co with tho firm resolution of shipping a
mill for tin) Keystone.
These lato discoveries and developments
have civen a new imnulse to mrnin? mntf r
throughout tho District.
Tho news from Cedar Valley Is also en
couraging. Judging from present indications, and from
facts already Jinowd, tho dark cloud which
his hung over tho mining interests of Mo
havo county, ond which has parulized the
effort us well as tno hopes of the people, is
about being Impelled fore vcr.and the entering
wedge of success will not only opep up this
section but all tho other great mining sec
tions of tho Territory.
I hate to moralize or comment on tho fail,
aire, but assert without fenr of successful
contradiction, that the principal cause of min
ing failures n this Territory, was and Is tho
result of incompetent, Ignorant and stupid
management, or rather mismanagement. Tho
CotmUock rallies under rcckleM superinten
dent and dUhonest directors proved what
tho richest mines on earth would prove, to-,
tal failures. To Insure success, economy,
prudence, IioncMy and Intelligence are abso'
lutoly nrccssary, without these, it wero vain
to hof for success in any business. Tho
principal mines of tho ut in Arizona were
owned and worked by foreign incorporations
whose operations have been distinguished by
a total disregard of tho first principles of min
ing, and as night follows day, so surely, will
tho Xeiiiiv created by wild extravagance re
suit in disaster to themselves and discredit to
tho Territory. Hut, as brighter propoct

A terrible trngeily was enacted at Kl lb
rado Canon a couple of weeks since ; a'partr
of men came from I'iochu to work ou one o(
the mines in that camp, a dispute took place
as to n division of the property, which result
ed in tho death of two men, named Kingaad
Jones, and tho severe wounding oi another.
