Engliseh Method of eparatitng Lad
In England it is found profitable to sepa
rate the silver from the lead ore, when the
latter contains but five dollars to the ton.
" How can it be possible," pertinently- in
quires the Reveille, "that the miners of
this State can say that they find it imprac
ticable to separate the two metals, when so
large amounts as several hundred dollars
of silver are present. Either the reports
are false. or our operators are grossly ig
norant of the business they have under
taken." That journal appends to its re
marks some interesting information in re=
lation to the English process of working
argentiferous galena, which we will copy :
In England the metals are separated by
what is known as the Pattinson process,
founded on the circumstance that when
lead containing silver is melted in a suita
ble vessel, afterwards slowly allowed to
cool, and at the same time kept constantly
stirred, at a certain temperature, near the
melting point of lead, metallic crystals be
gin to form. These, as rapidly as they are
produced, sink to the bottom, and on being
removed are found to contain much less sil
ver than the lead originally operated on.
The still fluid portion, from which the crys
tals have been removed, will at the same
time be proportionately enriched.
This operation 3s conducted in a series
of eight or ten cast iron pots, set in a row,
with fireplaces beneath. A quantity of
lead containing silver is placed in one of
the central pets, melted, earefully skimmed
with a perforated ladle, and the ire im
mediately withdrawn. As it cools, it is
stirred with an iron stirrer, and crystals
soon begin to form, which are removed with
a perforated ladle, the fluid lead shaken
out and passed in to the next pot in the
row, and afterwards the enriched lead Ib
ladled into the pot in the opposite direction.
If the pot at first contained six tontof lead,
containing say twenty ounces of. silver,
four tons of crystals may be taken. out in
the first operation. These erystals stillcon
tain silver, and the fluid, is ely enriched
lead, but when the crystals Lhae reached
the last pot in the eerier; they are neirly
pure lead, and the last pot in the other di
rection contains an alloy of silver asd
lead which is finally prified by eapelli

of the wuaner i which quite a nlniber at
0rrespoudents handle asebjeet with regard
to the. generl rle of veraity re.ited of
them b the pdlie. To avoid such errors
and to aisiataid a god foothold uldn the
trail of truth, I will tell.aou and the publio
just wht Ihave seen, not 'givang foe truth
what I have otly heard. To commcnce:
Stampedes and searcity of provisions are
the order if the day. Lately a gulch called
Ophir has been discovered, sad hundreds
found their way to the new El Dorado,seme
paying dearly for their venture by having
to yield a part et their extremities to the
merciless power of King Frost.. There have
been, since the stampede, various reports,
all conflicting, yet all praising the rich
ness of the Ophir and its tributaries. Now,
Mr. Editor, you may hear most lattering
reports enlarged possibly by travel, yet
you may safely say that the promulgators
know nothing but what has been handled
several times over. During the bitter cold
weather that prevailed on this western
slope, there was not the smallest opportu
nity for any one to burrow through the
snow and frozen ground, to test the asser
tion of my neighbor down the gulch, who
saw six feet of gravel paying almost any
amount of the preciona dust to the pan.
Not one of the stampeders saw a prospect
taken out of the ground in Ophir gulch, yet
all seem perfectly convinced that fortune
has at last smiled upon their eforts, and is
now ready to yield them the riches earned
by their perseverance and hardihood. That
such may be the case, I will humbly pray,
for your humble servant is interested, and
nothing would give him greater pleasure
than to be able to give "Tilt," "Dittes"
"Buck" and others of the PosT, a grand
jollfication on champagne and ice, as he
would, should fortune crown his efforts.
Quite a bread riot occurred in our town,
a few evenings since, at the store of 0. G.
Dorain. Having no money, and being re
fused credit, some sons of the Emerald Isle
made free with the flour then lying in
Dorain's store, to their own satisfaction
and the discomfiture of the proprietor. One
of the rietors, after having satisfied himself
in the bread line, called for a couple of
oans of oysters. This demand, however,
was not pressed, therefore it was not com
The gloom of winter has been rapidly
brightening, the snow finding its way to the
water level, by numerous conduits, for the
past three days. Spring with its green liv
ery, bids fair to greet us shortly. How
joyfully will we welcome its smiling face,
after a period of four months steady cold
weather. Already the rocker is in use upon
the different bars in this gulch, and proe
pecting is going on in several places. Some
of the claims will shortly be tested, should
our good fortune will the weather to re
main as it is. No. 83 above, in summit
district, has been proven to be good ; so say
the owners. I cannot state with certaina
ty the exact amount of gold dust taken
out from one pan, but I will give it as I
have heard it. On the 16th of March, a
considerable excitement was created by the
report that $5 90 had been washed out from
one pan of dirt. Since that time the
amount has been steadily growing, until
now the report gives $55. Which of the
various reports is true I cannot tell; yet
prejudice leads me to favor the first, be
cause it is the smallest.
Quartz discoveries are still going on, and
great praise is due to the hardy men who,
in snow and cold, still persevere in their
ceaseless efforts to enrich themselves and
develop the resources of this our young and
hereafter-to-be prosperous Territory.
Shoulder to shoulder they brave the storm
and wield the pick and shovel in spite of
Winter's frowns. Wessels, Humphries,
Lawson, Brown,Chittick, McArthur, Porter
Bro's, Leary, and a dozen others are at it
daily, and deserve to reap a rich harvest
for themselves and their posterity.
I must now close, having, Ifear already

EDrro Pose ---Another great national
holiday is fairly inaugurated; so for the
future we shall have our political as well
as religious holidays. Anvils are bellowing
forth their thunders to show our power and
frighten the Indians into good behaviour;
the wind is blowing hard to give us fresh
air, and musicians are blowing as hard to
give us national airs.
We are still having dull times and bad
weather; there is no improvement in any
thing. Wood is now up to $12 per cords
Ranchemen are trying to raise the price of
hay ; milk-men complain because they only
get one dollar per gallon for milk and water;
mill-men growl that they can't get paying
rock to crush; claim owners swear that the
mills don't save their mineral, and miners
rate at the loW rates of wages, asserting
that they eaa't make a hliving here ad
therefore they must go where they e do
better, bat this horrilly c6ld weather pre

Iosos.-Every American must feel gratified
at the praise of our navy by English states
men and journals. The London Times
"The Americans have raised theif navy
to that of a first-class power, and this one
fact alone should make us look more close
ly than ever to our navy. Instead of our
fleet being overgrown, it it clear that we
are a long way behind the United States in
The London Shipping Gazette thus re
fers to the subject:
" We have now, built or building, thirty
armor plated ships; but this is a compara
tively small fleet as compared to what the
Federals will shortly have. Between the
conflicting claims of the turret and other
principles, the ntmerical superiority of our
fleets should not be lost sight of. The
Americans are building some large vessels,
especially designed to carry the heaviest
guns yet invented, looking to the steaming.
sailing and stability of the ships, and not
to their impenetrability. Shot or bolts o
300,400 and 600 pounds are to be fire
from the guns of this fleets If the side
of iron vessels can be penetrated by sho
from the guns of a wooden ship, then we`
shall have to experimentalise again."
It is plain that Britannia no longer" rules

co.-A gentleman who was recently ban
ished from Masatlin for speaking favorably
of the Juares Government, furnished a
San Francisco paper with some valuable
information concerning the " situation" in
Northern Mexico. He says the French,
who have possession of Mazatlan, are rul
ing the unfortunate inhabitants with a rod
of iron, while Corona, one of Juaret's
Generals who holds the country within a
mile and a half of the city walls prevents
all communication with the interior. The
consequenc4 is that provisions are at fam
ine prices, and are only procurable cOast
wise. Corona, a few' days before the
steamer left, captured a train of ive hun-i
dred mules belOnging to the Frebch, within
a quarter of a mile of Masatlin. It'was
reported that there would be a large emi
gratieo from the European Continent to
colonize the lew Territory, but it is be-.
lieved that the Mexicans would destroy the
settlements as fast as formed. The people

that one of his scouts came in with the in
formation that Generals Lee and Cheatham
had been sent from Alabama against Sher
man, but Lee was subsequently recalled to
defend Selma. Cheatham proceeded, in
tending to form a junction with Hardee
from Charleston, but scoots report that the
rebels have informlation that before the
junction was formed, Sherman hurled a few
of his veteran brigades back upon Cheat
ham's column, completely crushing it.

Sherman in front and got awfully whipped.
