Ed. be Goff sworn and testified as follo,
for the delenc,-Am acquainted with h,.
Peel and Bull; about three weeks ago Per
told me that he would murder somue s of
b----; Peel :.ail, with reference to prisoner a
the bTr--"If ever I get after that s- u
a l-- I will murder him;" he mentione
Johuny's (the p.rii(oer') name; Bull wa. i
town at that tm:ne; Bull was in the hall; I saa
him: mean the theatre; have known Bull owm
ten or twelve years; where I have known h
b.as alway. ,,een a quiet and peaceable man; h
has ben" sorme six years on this side of th
SSierra Nevada'.-; he had the reputation o
Ieing a rough boy previously; have knowi
I'-el since '5I or '60; Peel has been very peace
abble.-ince h.. has been in this country; knee
him in Nevada. and a very little in California
didn't want much to, do with him; know h:s
'general reputation, it was to go around any
'unler peoplle up,"'I mean by that to tell hieu
that he wanted money.
A mos T. Laird sworn and testified for th
defence as follows-This witness testified ti
the general character of the d'.ceased and th
piisonerat the bar; knew nothing against th
prisoner, unless some small vices; have knowI
him some five or sia years; have known l.e
ongter than the prisoner; he (Peel) wL% con
sidered a dangerous nan; from what I knot
of the character of Peel I would not feel saf
after the threats he made against the prison
er. On the crc as examination witness stateu
that he heard nusme men say that Peel alway
gave a man a fair thow.
A great amount of testimony was enterc%
by the defense bearing on the general repu
tation and character of Peel, which went te
s:,owV that he wis a dangerous man to c. º- i1
any iw iy. yuick with the pistol anl a go'r
Ia.,t, but a:- a ge- riaul thing we'ul.l give a;
antagonist a "*£air show." The te-timon,,
adduced also showed that the prisoner at th
bar had heretofore enjoyed a good reputation
Her,! the defense rested.
The arguments will be commenced or
Thursday and the jury will probably render
their verdict the same right.

A ring our connection with that paper, we ha
14 referred to this district as one of the mia
e rich and valuable portions of our Territor
and now having visited the same, we speak "
u that we do know." The district lies on boy
4 sides of Brown's Uulch, a tributary of Aid
LU Gulch, and is about eight miles in length, we
Id watered in every part, with an abundance :
t' fine timber, especially on the south. It isI
little value for agriculture, being very broke
and the main gulch narrow and deep. Ti
P only part cultivated is a large garden near tt
mouth of the gulch, which now lookc wel
having escaped the ravage. of the grasshoj
i 'pers. The improvements of the district are
steam quarts mill of 15 stamps,. now bein
d erected, about the middle of the district, b
the Golden Gate Company, under the superv
,ion of J. T. Conner, Esq.: and still higher u
a steam saw mill, now successfully worked. h
,Meisrs. Grfflith & Thompson. To these ina
'Q be added the cabins of the resident miner.
about 50 or 60 in number. The leading inter
i est of the district is the great number of ric
quartz leads that have been already discoverer
1 and are now being worked by extracting th
ore. We observed several compares sluicin,
in the gulch. and the answer to our inquiry
"What 'luck ?' " -Pay."
The gold of the gulch is largely alloye
with silver, and is therefore of less value thai
the dust of Alder, per ounce.
This fact, with the careful ,'xaminati;i
given to all the ores now being extracted fron
the lodes of this district, induces the conclu
lion that the value of the ores will he fouuc
to be silver rather than gold, and to be work.s
succedsfully should be treated as such.
Descending from the region of perpetua
snow, some two hundred feet, we find the Flat
Lo le, a vein well defined, sonme two feet it
width at the depth of eight or ten feet. W4
take this ledge for a sample of all the lode:
visited of the district as to the character oe
the ores--on or near the surface praspecting
richly in free gold, though alloyed with uilver,
At the depth of 60 or 70 feet we find three de
fined veins, of from three to twelve f.'et ir
width, of quartz, containing bulphuretf of sil
ver and free gold. These ores are not to be
classed as refractory, but will, when tested
prove easily reducible, and paying in or by the
simplest and most common process of reduc
tion. We have no hesitancy in saying that to
take the ores of the Black, Dellton, White,
Commisizon, Ilamlin, True aiilvor, Extenin.
