At a meoeting of those interested in the
mining claims in Dry Gulch, it was decided
to try. bringing the water which is now at
the' upper claims, but sinks some way
above the lower discovery, by means of a
ditch to the claims below. Ea~ch claim
which furnished help toward the work was
to have a privilege at the water, and the
men have gone at it in earnest. It will be
done this week---certainly enough for
working, and by constructing a reservoir
they have the expectation of flooding some
seven acres near the forks of the gulch, and
hope by that means to secure a supply of
water daily for the entitle season. This
will make the lower claims much more val
gable than they now are, and raise mapy a
man's hops concerning his prospects in that
Quite a number of men about here are
moving across the Missouri to Con
federate gulch, which, so unfortunate in
name, they think to be a good thing. We
wish our own camp to grow as fast as pos
sible, lut are not so selfish that we would
keep other parts of the Territory from be
ing developed and tested.
The mining in Last Chance district will
soon be very much more active, when the
water comes. There is a small supply of
that needful article flowing through the
town, and the original ditch company who
had some eleven or thirteen miles of ditch
ing before them at the outset, have been
slightly anticipated by another company,
who make a much shorter ditch, bringing
the water from Ten Mile creek, and striking
the gulch about No. 9 below discovery.
This last company hate manifested much
enterprise, and hope to have their ditch
completed in two or three weeks more. In
the meantime the old ditch company "keep
on," and when their ditch is completed the
upper claim holderswill rejoice and sluice.
The rich "'Gritzly" is being worked for
miles, and by the stories and the gold,
(which is much more reliable than any story
now-a-days,) most of the owners have no
cause to complaim. Isaw sixty-three ounces
of very nice dust and small nuggets, from
$25 down, which were taken out of one
claim in twenty-four hours-this week.
In No. 34 in lower discovery they took
from the bed-rock the head, bones and al
most, if not quite, an entire skeleton of a
buffalo, some forty or forty-ave feet below
The news of Grant's victory and Lee's
capture brightened the eyeb of every Union
man, and the only consolation which we
have heard meted out by any Southern
sympathizer was: "Lee may have surren
dered; it is possible hi did: but you never
will hear of Longstreet doipg the like."
This I think to be changing the place but
keeping the pain.
Last evening we raiseu toe Mars ano
Stripes on the main street of our city. The

PICKltY PEYa, April 14, 1865.
EnDroa PosT:-We have just returqed
from a hasty visit to Jeferson City. The
boys up there ar all "sound on the goose
questioni" but more intent upon finding
tho"bed-rock in this olch at that place
than upon the solving of the other problem.
Through the enterprising endeavors of
Messrs. .becnan, Richardson and others,
a prospecting company has been formed,
and a drain-ditch, started, the work upon
which is progressing rapidly.. The number
of persons composing the company fl limit
ed to thirty; twenty are already interested,
each of whom is to have threehundred feet
of ground in the District for prospecting it.
Thus many persdns with but a small outlay
of money or labor are enabled to obtain
ground, whi.h is undoubtedly good, as ex
cellent prospects have been found only four
feet below the surface. The terms of mem
bership in the company include the pay
ment of from three to five dollars per day,
or just enough to keep a sufficient number
of men working advantageously in the drain.
Thus men can work out their own assess
ments, make small wages, and get one
claim and a half besides. The superinten
dents of the work and scheme are'honest
and responsible men, who, when they un
dertake a thing, go through with it if it
Jefferson is improving fast, and the price
of town property is advancing rapidly. A
good saw-mill near the town is doing a
thriving bisiness. We are told a brewery
will soon be in running order, which will
add much to the spiritual comfort of the
place. Wishing the boys all the success
imaginable in getting down where
"They'll pick up lumps that weigh a pound,
And lay like horse-chestnuts on the ground,"
we started home.
The twelve miles of road between this
place and Jefferson, instead of the unin
Shabited and solitary appearance it present
ed a few months since, now presents one
of thriving industry.
Prospectors are now bbsfly improving
their time looking for quarts in the sur
rounding mountains. Many Iodes of au
riferous rock are found .daily. .ne great
difficulty with the majority of the_ quartz
prospectors here is a great want of thenec
essarry nineralogical knowledge to prose
cute their labors with dispatch. IProspect

lode." A good assayer could do well by
locating. in this p:rt of the .country. The
want of one is much felt in this community.
Besides proving a kind of philanthropist, a
good assayer can become possessed of
quartz property which will immediately be
We have had a man here who had a
"prognosticarum," (more commonly known
as a forke4 stick). The "stick man" cre
ated quite an excitement by his success in
finding gulch and quartz mines; but his
forked institution is about "played -out"
now, having failed to make the connection
in several instances. The thorn-man is all
the go now, who says: " This is the richest
gulch in the Territory."' We do not know
upon what alchemical principle the thing
works, or what are the secret ingredients
inside his outfit. We only know he has it
"in a horn," and that the horn was labor
lrg under a severe indisposition the other
day, caused by bad whisky, and failed to
perform its functions in consequence. We
have known for a long time that horns will
sometimes cause inebriation, but didn't
know that a horn could become inebria
ted-however, strange things occur now
Oliver's and EgneIPs express lines are
doing a thriving business so far as carry
ig, passengers is concerned; but theire
seems to be something wrong. at the post
office. Sometimes the Prickly Pear mail
bag comes instead of the Silver Bow. We
think as our letters cost us two cents more
each than the Express charges are, the post
master ought to be able to distinguish one
mail bag from another, or sell out to some
body who does. Youss, ROVER.

PraanD LAME.-Tho Virginia Enterprise
Pyramid Lake is about sixty miles long
by twenty-five miles in width. It contains
nine pyramidical islands, ranging in height
from fifty to five hundred feet. It is from
these pyramidal islands that the lake takes
its name. The water in the center of the
lake is quite fresh, while that about the
shores is strongly impregnated with salt
and alkali. The islands are generally bar
ren piles of rocks. On some of the largest
are found a few snakes and horned toads,
while on the others no living thing, save a
cricket or somen such inseot, can be found,
Great numbers of pelicans, gulls and other
water fowls are to be found about the lake.
Some of the pelicans measure eight feet
from tip to tip of their wings. Southeast
of the lake, and at no great distance from
its shores, is a large mountain of coral, or
what resembles coral, whichis full of coves,
many of which are of great beauty and ex
tent. At the south end of the lake is an
extensive beach of pure white sand. Sep
arated from the main lake by this beach is
a beautiful little laike about one mile in
diameter. Doubtless this was once an arm
of the main-lake. The lake is alive with
fish-trout that from their great size and
beauty would render frantic with delight
any true desciple of the immortal Izaak.
No boat has ever navigated the waters of
the lake. Fremont, from his camp, (which
lm still shown) at the south end of the lake,
sailed out on a tub raft to the first pyramid
or island, distant from the shore some three
miles. These tub rafts are the only craft
that have ever been seen on the waters of
the lake. A sailboat,, however, will soon
be launched upon its mysterious waters.
A CoFIuCT.--A serious diffculty has
arisen in Michigan, growing out of a recent
decision of the Supreme Court of that State,
which held that the Soldiers' Voting Law
was unconstitutional. Some ten members
of the lower House of the State Legisla
ture held their positions by virtue of the
soldiers' suffrage, and a majority of the
committee, to whom the matter was refer
red, have reported in favor of the sitting
members. The minority reported adverse,
ly. The press of the State is greatly exer
cised over the matter and a discussion of
the question, as to how far a Legislature is
bound by the opinion of the Supreme
Court, has extended into the other States;
The Republican papers ate divided on the
question. If the law be not constitutional
it ought to be, both in Michigan and every
where else in the land.--St. Joseph Herald.
