Mr. Stewart U making some changes In the
mail time between here and Tucson that will
end the mall through without lyinp over at
Grikt I Taggert & Co., havo purchased
the real estate business of C. E. Sessions,
. 1 '
Senator Lane, in the California Legisla
ture in trying to paw a bill to compel all cor
respondents ot newspapers to sign their ozrn
proper names to their productions.
The Los Angeles Express, which is one of
our moat valuable exchanges, if not the very
best, has a kind word for the Miner on see
ing it enter upon its thirteenth year and vol
ume. "Wo appreciate the compliment, the
more, as we know the temper and ability of
the Express Editor, and that he never utters
n meaningless expression nor praises without
New Discovert. G. W. Curtis informs
us that two men from his saw-mill, Richards
and Hughes, have discovered a ledge of gold
bearing quartz two miles from the old Quartz
Mountain Saw-mill on Groom's Creek, and
have sunk fifteen feet on a solid ledge twenty
inches in thickness, and as the result of that
sinking have out seven tons of ore that will
work from $300 to 500 to tho ton.
Four More Good Indians. We met Ma
jor Ogilby yesterday, who has just arrived
from Camp Apache with twenty-six Indian
'soldiers. He informs us that they encount
ered a rancheria in the Ton to Country, on a
stream known as Shevelin's Fork, and killed
four bucks and took six squaws prisoners.
They scoured the country thoroughly and
are satisfied that they have rid that region ot
all the renegades that have infested it during
tho past summer and fall.
The Major inf-irms us that ho found a band
of 20,000 sheep in tho Tonto Country, be
longing to the ArmijoV, of NewMexico, and
that they have recently been driven into Ar
izona from that country.
The Call of Jan. 29th, says Mr. Powers has
bought the King mine in Stoneman Dist,.
Pinal County, Arizona, lor 200,000. One
, half cash and the balance in installments,
with a condition that the buyer shall put up
a mill in connection with the works.
In further corroborations of tho reported
ale, W. B. Hellings telegraphed from Pbro
nir on Friday last to Major Veil at this
place that the King was sold for $200,000.
Tho only strange thing connected with
the matter is that the press dispatches are
entirely silent on tho subject.

Wo notice with deep regret the announce
ment of tho death of our old friend B. B.
Cutter, in the California papers. Ben was
one of the best business men in California,
and at the same time one of tho most gcuial
and whole-souled. An intimate business
and social acquaintance dating back to 18G8
enables us to say that he rarely ever made a
mistake in business, and never forgot the
courtesy due. to others. One mistake, how
ever, he did mako in abandoning the grain
and milling business for the wholesale liquor
traffic, which no doubt hastenud his death,
and was tho immediate cause of the apo
plexy of which he is said to havo died sud
denly and alone in his office in San Fran
cisco. Didn't See it am,. Elder J. Z. Stewart
of the Mormon Mission to Mextcf, writing
to the Dcseret News, describes the trip of tho
Saints from Salt Lake to their new field of
labor and says: "The towns of Arizona,
Now Mexico, Texas and Mexico are all alike,
having flat roofed houses and all being the
same height. The streets run in every direc
tion just as it happens, the only regularity
being iu the hight of the buildings. The
Saint evidently did not pass ihrough Pres
cott or he might have varied his description
a little. The Mormons who passed through
Tucson and into Mexico last fall to establish
a mission write back to their friends in Salt
Lake that they have discovered traces of Je
sus Christ, while on earth, and that ho was
in the habit of visiting these people. The
ancient Aztecs, the missionaries are
quite sure, were the ancient Nephitcs spoken
of in the book of Mormon, 5th chapter of
the book of Nephi. The Indians tell them
of a fair God who used to visit their fore-fathers
and promised to come again. When
Cortezcame thoy thought it was he, but
soon learned that he was snly human.
Is Nrw Mexico rx Harmony With the

Preliminary Stages of the Fryer Foces.
In order that our readers may learn what
Mr Fryer claims, we give in full the follow
ing description, precisely as prepared for the
specification for foreign patents, being it little
difFenmt from the American patent in detziL
Thi; obiect of this invention is more espec
ially to facilitate and reduce the cost of the
extraction of the gold and silver which is
contained in quartz, but it may also bo ap
plied to the separation of the noble metals
troin other ores in which they may be con
tai: cd with the base metals.
The inven ion consists in a furnace of up
right cylindrical form, which has a double
wall or shell of boiler plate or other iron for
containing water or Meant, and a suspended
invertib'e or removable bottom, and has in
its upper part a cone, around which the gas
eous products of combustion in the furnace
may escape to a stack above, and upon the
exterior of which is delivered water, vhich
falls over its edges and meets the gaseous
and volatile products escaping from the fur
nace, and condenses ccrl-un metalicand other
portions of said products, which fall witn
tho itaid water and are collected therewith
into a suitable receptacle, while the ore is
being roasted in the furnace by the cotnbus
tion of wood, upon which the said ore is' de
posited therein. Air is freely applied to the
said furnace through an annular opening
provided around its removable or invertible
bottom, for the combustion of the fuel and
the oxidation of the oxidizable portions of
the ore ; and this supply of air is or may be
increased by the steam which is generated
by the heat of the interior of the furnace
from the water in its double shell, and intro
duced in jets to the stack to act as a blower,
the water also serving to prevent the rapid
burning or oxidation of the inner wall of the
furnace. Thesuspeuueu removauie onnveri
ible bottom serves to permit the rapid dis
charge of the contents of the furnace after
the roasting has become completed. By the
roastin" process in this furnace the noble
metals are to such an extent separated from
the mineral matters and tho base metals
which are oxodized by the roasting process,
that their complete separation may be easily
effected by pulverization and subsequent
amalgamation, the ore h -ving been brought
to such condition by the roasting process
that its complete reduction to an exceeding
ly tine powder is very greatly facilitated.
The body of the furnace, constituting tho
furnace proper, is of upright cylindrical form,
open at the top and bottom, and suspended
on or in a frame work by lues. This fur
nace is constructed of boiler plato or other
iron, with a doublo shell. Between the shell
a water and steam pipe is provided, the object
of which is, in the first place, to prevent the
" i i . i :
inner shell, irom rapiuiy uunnng out, aim m
the second place, to provide steam with
which to supply a steam jet blower, located
in the stack, above the furnace.
The bottom of the lurnace, made in the
form of an open vessel of an internal diame
ter larger than the external diameter of the
body of the furnace, and constructed with
a double shell, having a water space to pre
vent ranid oxidation of the interior. T h
said bottom is suspended from the frame, by
rods, connectine therewith by trunnions.
and with apparatus overhead, by means of
which the said bottom may oe raisea ana
lowered at pleasure. A double shell cham
bsr is situated at the top of the body of the
fnrnncn. and throuzh the inner shell of
which the caseous products of combustion
and volatile matters from the furnace pass to
the stack, which is erected above said cham
ber. The space between tho two shells of
. . i.:u i
this cnamuer contains waier, wuicu pictcms
tho burning out of the inner shell.
A cone. which is located over
the upper portion of the inner shell of the
chamber, upon which is delivered a stream
of water through a pipe, which water comes
in contact with said products as they pass
and afterwards falls into tho space between
the inner and outer shells of the chamber,
an overllow pipe for conducting off the water
from the space between the shells of the
chamber, after it has performed the opera
tion of condensing the volatile metalic and
some other products of combustion which
have been involved from the furnaco and
trhir.li are collected in tho said space. A
nine for conducting steam from the space sur
rounding the body of the furnace to the
blower. A pipe for feeding water to tue
above mentioned space.
The operation of the furnace is as follows :
Wood is delivered to the furnace until the
same is partially filled when tho quartz or
ore to be treated is delivered in the same
manner, in lumps of any size that will enter
the furnace, on to the top of the wood,
which is then ignited at the bottom. The
result is that the principal portion of the
wood is converted into charcoal before a
creat amount of the same is consumed ; after
wutcb tue wnoic cuargc isgrauuauy ruiM-u iu
to a very high temperature in the presence
of a larce flow of air entering the furn.ice be
tween the body and the bottom, the influx
of said air being urged by the action of the
blower as 60on as sufficient steam is genera
ted. The effect is that the sulphur aiu
other volatile matters are mostly expelled
while the base metals are converted into ox
ides in the furn-ce, leaving the noble metals
in comparitively a tree statu for amalgama
The relative quantities ofore-and fuel sup
nlied to the furnace may be about one and a
quarter cords of wood to four tons of ore, or
in like proportion according to tue capacity
of the furnace; but these proportions mny
be varied according to the nature of the ore
After the charge of fuel has completely
burned out. the bottom is lowered and tnnr
ed upon its trunnions sufficiently to precipi
tate the contents of the furnace into a pit
below, or into or on any other suitable place
or receptacle, from whence it may be gath
ered for further treatment. The bottom is
then replaced in position when it is ready to
receive another charge for a repetition of the
oDcration. fMiniuc and Scientific Press
"When Bret Harte was lecturing lately in
Pennsylvania a committeeman went bebinc:
the curtain to speak to him just before he
was to begin his lecture, and among other
things told the humorist that this was a very
healthy citv, the death-rate being only one
a day. Harte sprang to his feet as if quite
alarmed and asked: "Is lie dead r "l
who dead?" inquired the committeeman
"Whv the man for to-day, said Harte. lh
committeeman could not tell, and was im
plored to find out from ths city authorities
before the lecture began, for said Harte if he
is dead I shall be all right, as I leave the city
earlv in the morning, but if not I shall fee
uneasy about myself for I am feeling rather
unwell this evening." the simple man prom
ised to try and cet the information for him
and after "the lecture was over, called at his
hotel to say that upon inquiry he had ascer
tained that by the deatn-rate was meant sim
ply the average of deaths ounng tne year.
