Written ia the serene quiet of oar sanctnm.
Tbe wave of time liave lafhed their $pray
Apainst our rocking, pebbled world
One hundred times since that fjreat day
That Freedom's banner was unfurl'd
Above the ranks wher heroes stood,
Prepared lo die nt Freedom's call,
Which first ranp out o'er town and wood
From grand old ludepcudence Hail!
Brave colnoiets with hearts so true
They dare throw off their filing yokes
("Why, Unkle Jake! How do you do
This morninjr ? How nre all" the folia !
Glad to hear they're well.") And with
The steel of sword and bayonet
Defend the Riirht ("No Mr. Smith,
Your posters arc not printed yet.")
They met, nor flinched, nor bent the knee
To hirelings Irom a foreign shore:
Their cry was "Death or Liberty !"
("Come back, you cuss, and shut the door !")
War's thunder rolled ! Columbia's skies
Were veiled, and lolty mountains shook
("A quarter, sir, willndvcrtisc
Your lost morocco pocket-book.")
Aud fields were dyed with many a drop
Of crimson gore for it did flow
("Get shaved ; You'll flud a barber shop
This side the second door below.")
Did How until the ground was wet
And dotted o'er with clotted pools
("No, haven't any copy yet.
Tell them to set up on their stools J")
They fought ("Xo!") like the sons of Troy
And drove the British from our shores
That we to-day ("Yes 1") might enjoy
The peace ""0 curse the ollkc bores !"J

Get out!! Now let the devil come,

THE FRYER PROCESS.
A reporter, from the San Francisco Eve-:
ning Post, Las been to Grass Valley tuid had
an interview with Mr. Fryer and his won
derful process, a column description of
which leaves tho reader as much in the dark
as if he had remained in his olhce in ban
Francisco and guessed at tho iueans by
which Mr. Fryer is supposed to reduce and
extract all the metal from all kinds of ores
at the almost nominal cost of three dollars
If the reporter elicited anything worth
repeating, it is the following, which we
copy from his article on the subject :
A1I0UT THK FROCKS.
Mr. Fryer afforded the Post representa
tive every facility for examining the ma
chinery, and explained the workings freely
with the exception ol the chemu-al com
pound necessary to first force the gold to
part with the rough ore. Thin is evidently
the secret of the process. The ore is first
placed in u furnace about fifteen feet broad
by forty high and submitted to an intense
heat. V hen it conies out it lias the ap
pearance of the rough clinkers which come
from the burning of hard coal.
A ClIUKItl.Nfi SIGHT.
The reporter was invited to look at some
of the roasted rock, and the sight was some
thing startling. It had been burned and
half melted with the heitt. Its biirface ha.t
a peculiar appearance, and a close inspec
tion showed little globules oi pure goiri,
which had exuded through the pores of the
rock. A magnifying glass revealed an
infinite number of lumps, taken up'at hap
hazard from the pile, and all had the same
THE CItUSiltNR MACHINE.
The ore is now so fragile that it can be
crushed beneath the heel, and it passes into
a machine like a windmill where a system of
falling weights reduces it quickly to a pow
der as line as flour, and having the appear
ance of ground cement. In tllo furnace
about twenty per cent, of volatile matter
oes off, but the precious metal loses noth
ing by the operation. After the reduction
to pulp the gold and silver are extracted by
the ordinary process of amalgamation. The
advantage this process possesses over the
stamp mill is, that every gruin of gold is
saved, while by the old process the gold
which refu es to amalgamate goes off with
the water flow. The expense of the Fryer
process is less than 5 to the ton. The
workmen employed know nothing of the
process, their labor being-merely mechanical.
WHY THE SECKECT.
Reporter Mr. Fryer, since the process
has proven so successful, why is such strict
secrecy maintained i
Fryer I have a good many business ar
rangements yet to complete and my foreign
patents arc not et secured. It was only
until quite recently that t made a practical
demonstration ol what 1 had so long oenev
exl would some daj' procure the best results.

many old miners in this district have no
faith in the process berate they have not
seen it. I don't bother about that. lam
now under contract to put up works for a
number of mining companies in districts
abandoned as worthless. I put these works
tin at mv own expense nnd take half the
nrofits for workinc the ore. I have asked
nolxidv in the State for a cent of capital, and
have refu?ed all offers of that kind. I feel
that I have the light to take rov. own time.
If this process had failed, the whole science
of chemistry would have gone down with it.
The reporter, after spending three hours
with Fryer artd his process, was convinced
that a revolution in the method of working
the bullion product of this coast will mark
the centennial vear. The future of his in
vention is considered by some of the best in
formed as sure ns the existence of tbe col
lossal hills with which it is about to grap
pic. Rebellious ores exist in Nevada county
in exhaustible quantities,' and the Fryer pro
cess will bring it out. Mr. rryer nas re

who has "come to stay."
The New Mexican thus appeals to the
"Freemen of the Hou-c;" An you love religi

minded oppression : as you love equal rights
and equality and justice to all men before

Editor Miner: After waiting several
days for the arrival of the steamer at Camp
Mohave from Yuma, I returned a few days
since to Cerbat, intending to return to Camp
Mohave when the steamer arrives sind make
a trip down the Colora 'o river and back.
I have taken occasion to make an examina
tion of the many" rich mines alwut Uerbat,
and will give your readers a short statement
of lacts learned from personal examination.
The "Fontenoy" mine, formerly the "New
Era," is one and a-half miles south of east
of Cerbat and is owned by Jas. Canavan and
Jas. Mulligan. They have five shafts and
d ifts from 20 to 100 feet deep, with a good
body of ore all tho way from one to over
two feet wide. Seventeen and a-half tons of
ore shipped to San Francisco gave an ave
rage of 520 per ton. There is now on the
dump 50 or more tons of equally good ore
and plenty more in sight. The New Year
mine is one-fourth of a mile from the Fon
tenoy, owned also by Jas. Mulligan, with
two shafts of 40 and CO feet, liaviug a well
defined vein of 18 inches of rock worth from
S200 to Sl,500 per ton. The vein matter of
bath the Fontenoy and New Year lias no
waste in it. Several rich stringers or feed
ers come into these veins from different di
rections, all giving promise of success in fu
ture workings. These two mines are being
.well and thoroughly worked, and everything
about the camp gives to the visitor the as
surauce that the owners are aware that thev
have a good thing, and have made arrange
ments to stay by their property. They have
a large and well built stone house, and a
spring of excellent water and plenty of wood
for years to come. Taken all in all I have
nowhere seen a more perfect mining camp in
Tho "G3" mine is two miles east of Cerbat,
and has five tunnels and five shafts from 40
to 100 feet. This is an incorporated com
pany, and unfortunately they are now in
itig-ition and but little work is being
lone, though large umounts of oro worth
SCOO per ton have been shipped to San Fran
cisco, and large amounts in sight and on the
The Mocking Bird, a half mile northeast
of "G3," is owned by Messrs. Miley & Riley
who are doing excellent work. They have
one tunnel 110 feet long, and one shaft 120
feet deep wilh good ore all the way from G
inches to 2 feet wide. They have over 50
tons of rock sacked up which will average
S700 per ton. The ore is gray and blue
Eiilphurets and horn nnd ruby silver. 1 have
a fine specimen of green horn-silver almost
pure and worth over $20,000 per ton, which
the owners presented me.
CIoe by Stockton Hill, 3 miles northeast
of Uerbat, are some of the fines" veins I have
ever seen. The Cupel. Little Tiger, Dolly
Varden, Edward Everett, and Alca Stevens
are a cluster of fine mines owned by Messrs.
Corv & Potts, all very rich, and which I
think will at a depth of a few hundred feet
all run together and form an immense bo
nanza. Over 50 tons of ore from this cluster
has been shipped to San Francisco which
aveniL'cd over S5UU per ton. lucv arc now
sending several tons of ore to the new mill
at .Mineral Park, which will be running the
last of this or first of next week. Much of
this ore assays over 51,000 per ton.
In and around Stockton are a score or
more of other veins, all well defined, and
many of them equally rich as those men
tioned. The Little Chief, owned by Gate
wood &Co. is a. small but lich vein, carrying
ore, without waste, worth 1,000 per ton.
The Franklin, Centennial, I. X. L., Legal
Tender, Snow Flake, Tigress, Monitor, and
many more could be mentioned if tune and
space would permit.
The Oro Plata, Cerbat, Mohave Chief,
Vandcrbuilt and many others close by Cer
bat, are all promising ledges ; aud west from
Cerbat, from one to two miles, arc several
small gold-bearing veins which have been
worked some the past year, the ore yielding
from arrastras over 100 per tonr Further
descriptions must be deferred until some fu
Mr. Paul Weber, a young man of excel
lent habits, has bceu appointed Judge of
Probate of the County, to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of tbe late Judge Has
kelk No better appointment could have
been made. Mr. Webber was admitted to
the bar at the last term of the Court here
and passed an excellent examination.
Mr. and Mrs. Potts have two of the finest
specimens 1 have seen in Arizona not mine
ral, but far moro valuable and interesting,
to wit : two beautiful twin daughters of
about 18 months, perfect pictures of health
aud beauty. My visit here has been very
pleasant, owing to the kindness of Messrs.
Coiy, Potts, Comstock, Wright, Langley,
Canty, Cod Gallagher, E. Martin Smith
and others, to all of whom I return thank.

The Rev. G. H. Young preached lately a
sermon in the Unitarian church of Troy, in
which he advocated tbe taxation of all
church property. He estimated its value in
the whole United States to be 8832,000,000,
and claimed that it had quadrupled be
tween the years 1550 and 1870, while the
number of church members had only doubled.
The objection that churches benefit the
neighborhoods in which they stand, he met
by claiming that as much coold be said for
many other public - buildings.

MATTERS LETTE R
Editor Miner: The building of a good
wagot. road from Prescott to the Peck and j
Bradshaw districts has been advocated byi
the Miner and its correspondents for some
time, but up to the present no move has
been made towards building it by tho proper
authorities of this County.
The urgent and imtnediato necessity of
the proposed road must assuredly be plain
to every one who may have an interest in
this town or any part of the county. And
why this total indifference, or, as it may be
properly called, neglect of duty, which every
citizen owes to his own prosperity ? Let
every sober mind reason how it may, we
must come to the conclusion that highways
are a public necessity. A country without
roads is no country at all.
The last Legislature, by acts, gave full
powers to the Supervisors of counties to
build roads. And as our Supervisors will
see the great need of a good road to these j
districts, they are the proper parties to
build it. Our Supervisors, arc all men of
business and fully familiar with the wants
of the people of this County, therefore theyj
have no right to show indifference to pub
It cannot well be argued that the County
is unable to build a road that would cost
S10,000 because the Treasury docs not con
tain that amount of ready cash in its vaults,
for every one knows the resources of Yava
pai county are abundant to meet an indebt
edness of 850,000 should public improve
ments demand such an outlav. It can also not
well be argued that, while roads are built
to the south of Prescott, that those living
north of it would protest against it, that it
would be of no benefit to them because the
road or roads do not pass their houses,
farms or mines.
I say a good road from Prescott to the
Bradshaw and Peck districts is of the great
est benefit, not only to the people of Pres
cott. 'done, but to the whole County, for a
trade will be established that, without the
road, cannot be anticipated. The farmer
living to the North, Etst or West of Pres
cott will find a more ready market for his
produce, nnd consequently ho will prosper.
Prescott is the center and the nucleus of
commerce of Yavapai county. lis growth
and prosperity will be felt by everybody in
this county, no matter whether living North,
South, East or West of it. Therefore, lot
our Supervisors take immediate steps to
have the above mentioned road surveyed
and built without delay. Now is tho time,
Spring is near at hand, tho ground is soft,
consequently more work can be performed
than Jn tho Summer when the ground is
It will also be necessary for the County to
improve the military road from here to
Kirkland Valley. Another gride must be
made to enable teams of uny kind to pas
over it, which I think can bo done for less
In conclusion, T call upon each and every
businessman in Prescott and of tho whole
County to encourage our Suporuisors to
make the above mentioned improvements,
as that will increase trade and commerce of
all kinds, on which depends our main pros
perity. - A. LUKE.
Prescott, A. T Feb. 8th, 137G.
Governor Emery of Utah, in his message
to the legislature, has this to av on the buo
iect of polygamy : "The Gov. also calls for
a law against incest. There has been legi
lation in this Territory in regard to marriage
and who shall perform thecoremony. A pe
culiar characteristic. of the social condition
of the Territory and one that is affecting the
interests of the people is polygamy. In
meeting this question openly and fairly the
Gov. says he can but regard it as a crime
prohibited by the laws of our country and
that it docs violence to the accepted princi
ples of Christianity. The country at large
recoznizies it as a blot upon our civilization.
Our National Congress has enacted laws for
its punishment, and to prevent its continu
ance, lo the present, this law has not been
practically enforced, and he is led to believe
that polygamy, or plural marriages, are of as
frequent occurences as at any time in the
history of the territory. However this may
be, he has not the means of knowing, as
these marriage ceremonies are pertonned by
the church and are only known to its mem
bers. The Governor is sensible how delicate
his duty becomes under existing circurostan
ccs when the gentleman whom he has the
honor of addressing, with a single exception,
bvlieve in nnd many practice it from a sense
! of professed religious right. It appears to
mm and must be apparent to all, that the
lkw should be expunged from the stautes or
made operative. It will be gratifying u this
body enacts such legislation as will prevent
its extension and will adopt such raexnures as
look to a fair and impartial settlement ol
this subject as it affects the past."
Fence Law. There is liable to be a ques
tion of some importance agitated in the next
election between stockmen and fanners in
relation to a fence or no fence law for this:
county. Several stockmen nre already
making some stir in the matter, and are
quite anxious to make a test of it before tbe
people at the polls, while, so far as we have
heard, the farmers arc ttatisfied with the law
as it stands. We have been requested to
show the matter up, on tbe part of the own
ers of stock, and if we fully understood the
question in all its bearings, might attempt
to do so, but being without experience,
either as a stock owner or farmer, prefer to
leave the matter with those immediately in
terested, at tbe same time tendering tbem
the use of our columns for respectful discuts
ion on both sides? provided they are content
to conane inemsaves wuaiu reuDoioiejim1
