from the impossibility of provrag the metalbe

Hut there is no revon for upjKMing that the
terms were emjMoyed according to their strict
geological sigmnVatioo. The plain objerl of
the law is to di-jwe, for money value, of tbt
mineral lands of the United hi tea, and if the
claimant m willing to imt the nriee named in
the Act it te clearly a matter of indtftVreore
to the Government whether the metal ocrart

son nasigned why vein mines sbouki be pat

was the iFitenUon of the Act. An idea may
have prevailed at the time of the pAage of
tho law that the placers were beaHHing ex-
bausted, ami that their claimants did not
care about buying the la ml or obtaining pat
ents; or it may be that the act was dratted
mainly in view of hoaliti, where placer
mining oonstitntes a very inconsiderable
branch of the busitxs oofojiaml to n-ky
mining, and hence the phrmneolotry of the
act seems to have more direct refer shop to
vein mining than any other branch Rot
whatever may be the rane of the jvhranol
osrr adopted, it is very evident to the mind
of the Comtnissionor that no pirjM or de
sign existed in the minds either of the f rant
ers of the trill or the (Jongreee that passed it,
to exclude any class of loiners that choM to
avail themselves of it provisions. Gono
quonUy the law eboukl receive the most lib

It may be obervel as an important point
tlmt no proof Is required to cetabliah the
vein fun nation of the deposit, the law evident
ly contemidating none. It requires the Surveyor-General
to eertify "to the chameter of
the vein exposed ;" but that is understood
to mean that the certificate should show
whether the exposed vein contains gold, sil
vor, cinnabar or copper, a it would frequent
Jy imjawibie for the Survejor-Geflofftl,
even if las i:now!elge of mineral veins were

A Literal Turn of Mind.
In the Ciliary for September George Wake
man funiifdiea an amusing collection of to
ries illustrating "A Literal Turn of .Mind."
We quote n few:
This eame literal turn of mind, which I
have been illustrating, is aometimes ued tin
intentionnlly, and iierliajH a little maliciously,
and thus becomes the poetry of wit instead
of blunderers. Thus wo bear of a verv ix-
lite and impressive gentleman who said to a
boy in the street, "Floy, may I enquire where
KobinsonV drug store 5s?" "Certainly, sir,"
said the boy, very respectfully. "Well, sir,'
Mid the gentleman, after waiting a while,
"where is it 7" "Ihavo not the least idea,
yrr honor."1 said tha urchin. There was an
other boy who was accosted by an atretic
middle-aged lady with, -Mfoy, I want to go to
Dover street," "Well, ma'am.' said the boy,
"why don't you go there then " One day in
Lake George a Jarty of gentlemen (drolling
among the lutifol islands of the lake with
rather bad Inck, copied a little fellow with a
red shirt ami old straw bat, dangling a little
over the side of the boat. -Hallo, boy !" said
one of them, "what are yosi doing V "Ftsb
in'," came the answer. ''Well, of course."
said the gentleman, "but what do you catch T
Here the boy became indignant at so mneh
questioning, and refdied, "Fish, yon fool,

an infant class. "1 have," snouted a wx year
old from the foot of the cms. "Where V
asked the teacher. m0b the eJej-nant, said
the boy, laughing.
Sometimes this sort of wit degenerates or
rises, as the ca may be, into twinning, as
when Flora pointed peneirely to the heavy
tae of dottds in the sky, sayinr, "I won

brother renbed, "I think they arc coins te

now." And also, as wnon Patnek O'Flynn
was feen with hm coJUr and boMH sadly be
grimmed, and was indignantly asked by hi
ottfeer, "Patrick O'Flynn, bow long do yon
wear a slnrt T ami rwjJitHl promptly, "tw"n

The Hagaa rornace.
We take the followirtg letter from the &n

deems it dale to the rmbtie that a statement
of the facts shonhi 1m wideir putlibed.
It weU knorn that the ire of the Enter-

most retVctory of the California gold ores,
and that it has hitherto srwfVilfy resisted

The total bullion returned from these Ufty
flve tons is the sura of 1,015,50, eqnal to
18,52 per ton, or nearly four times as much
as the best returns we wore aWo to get by
any othor method of working. It is hardly
necessary to pronounce such results a very de
cided success, in view of which the Company
havo accented the furnace. And the convic
tion cannot be resisted by us that the Hagan
process is a complete solution of the whole
question of the treatment of sulphurot ores
and that it opens up to the jmblic use the ,
wav to secure all that vast mineral wealth i
which has been so long locked securely with
in tho refractory ores of this coast. In this
conviction the undersigned most heartily re
commends the Hagan method of reduction to
the earnest and careful investigation of nil in
terested in quartz mining, beimj fully satis
fied that such an investigation will lead to it
general adoption for tho treatment of all rc
fragtpry ores. (Signed) W. R 31at,
