Paris,Nov. 5.^It appears Napoleon did^not suggest the proposition for a settlement^of the Roman question by a popular vote of^the Papal provinces.

ThisMining District u one of peculiar in^^terest, to both tbe man of science and Iheprac-^tical miner, from the topographical charac^^teristics, the geographical formation and the^structure of many of its leads or ledges cf au-^ruerous quarts.

Assumingour capacity to describe maiy of^the objects of interest both natural and artifi^^cial that surround u^, and in so doing, to^write only truths, after thorough investiga^^tion; we make our apology for intru-iai up^^on the columns of your journal, uud the pa^^tience of your readers.
ih districts of Upper and Lowvi Hot^Spring he on either side of Hot Spring Creek,^the former about three miles above Hot Spring^itself, and the latter about three miles selow.
Fourmiles to the north of the formei is the^Norwegian District, which lies on either ude of^Norwegian Gulch. These three district cov^^er aa area of about fifteen miles siuare,^between Meadow Creek divide and the Villow^Creek valley. The country in a sloping pla^^teau, reaching away from tbe main high uouu-^tuin's range which divides thj Jeffursot and^Maduon, to the lovely valley of the latter^river. Ward's Peak, uionaxcb and tentnel of^this wild range^its head crowned wuh al^^most eternal suows, sends leaping and rtshing^down many little streams of crystal waters^which have cut through this plateau, some^^times, deep and rugged and again, ttallow^raviues, but ever with smooth, gently s.uping^sides.
Thedenudation of these streams in early^times, has been 1 ery marked, and has pnpared^a district origiually rocky and almost inac-^cessable for tbe subsequent u*e and pnfit of^tbe ranchman and miner. Still many rocky^ridges trend slowly down across these^grassy hills and slopes, and many fattaetic^dome and pointed tower stands often oi bases^far smaller than their upper parts, to e ll us^of what time and the elements have swept^away from between them. This regionwouid^be the delight of a geologist, and w^ our^^selves did there read noble lessons wbi'h we^would fain repeat; we forbear and turn to^what tbe utilitarian reader will call the ^ cut^bono^ of our subject^the veins of quarts^and gold.
Tbenarrowness of the veins is more notica-^ble in the portions of the upper district of^Hot Spring, which is called ^Gold Field,^^than elsewhere, aud we remarked at this place^tbe entire failure of tbe miners in^tbeir attempts to reach the lode by^digging for it at other points than at discov^^ery claim. The vein appears to pinch togeth^^er and shrink away from the surface, as if loth^to yield all its riches to the too easy grasp of^the sanguine miner. The great forces of de^^nudation and constant decomposition with^tbe broken, fragmentary nature of the granite^wit. a, increases the labor of the miner, and^often baffles and darkens bis brightest surfuce^prospects. This pinching together, by some^called ^capping,^ of lbe veins, is a most un^^favorable feature, e.-pecially iu a new country^like ours, with expensive labor and expectant^ricbee in a short period of time, but is more^than compensated for by the extreme rich^^ness of the vein.
Thec-.uarU of Hot Spring district has ever^been of high repute. We doubt whether^equally fine ^prospects^ can be taken at the^surface from so many different lodes any^where else in the Territory. A yield equal to^several hundred dollars per ton is not an un^^usual thing to find by the ^ panning teet,^^while the mill process has given in some cases^results not far inferior. It this surface^richness will but continue a- the lodes are fol^^lowed to great depths, a most brilliant future^ia secured for this district beyond a peradven-^ture.
Weexamined carefully a great many speci^^mens of quarts from different lodes, and found^them usually quite charged with oxydes of^iron, and copper, as also with bright crystals^of iron and copper pyrites, and blue glisten^^ing galena.
Molibdenum,manganese, plumbago and^other ores are also found to some extent.
Theuniversal dissemination of these met-^als in this district we consider to be a most^favorable feature, being as they are the con^^stant companions of the precious metals.
Theoxydation of most of these metals ha*^left tbe gold in a free state in the surface^quarts, and as yet no difficulty has been ex^^perienced at tbe mills in saving it. We hope^that tbe same success may attend their efforts^when they have to deal with the same metals^in an unoxydised state from greater depths on^their viens.
Tbelodes of the district have not so far as^we could discover, any constant trend or line^of out-crop, and only over limited areas, did^they seem to preserve any paialellism, being ap^^parently cut by cross viens, giving confusion^and uncertainty in course of vien. Their dip,^moreover, was at various angles ranging be^^tween a gentle slope, barely beneath the sur^^face of the ground to a nearly vertical posi^^tion. Those with the greatest dip seemed to^be upon the plateau and level areas, while^those in the sides of the ravines entered the^earth with a gentle incline, often nearly flat or^horizontal. This rule was not however a con^^stant one.
Mostof the mining of the district has been^done on through inclines, following line and^dip of the lode at a moderate depth.
thetopography of the country is more^favorable for this kind of working than it is^for drifting or the running of levels. We^visited and personally examined very many^of tbe lodes discovered and partially opened,^and regret that time and since permit us only^to describe a few. We premise our discrip-^tion with thanks to Professor Henry A. Ward^and E. L. Pratt, for personal attentions and^facts relative to the mines we essay to note.^the boaz lode.^This lode i- located in the lower district,^and is, in our opinion, entitled to the palm^for richness of ore. The vein is well defiio-d.^and stands almost vertical; the quartz soft^and filled with bright red ochre, and abound-^ng in free gold. The position of tbe lode is^extremely favorable for working, either by-^shaft or tunnel. This ore has yielded from^$30 to $100 per ton. Professor Ward, of the^Midas Company, has lately purchased one-half^of the lode. We could not, without ^leading^questions,^ ascertain the price paid, tfht it is^reported at $10,000. The advantages of ex^^tracting ore easily^the width of pay ore^^the dip of the vein^all point to the fact that^the Boaz is one of the best, if not the best, in^tke district. Besides the above advantage*^t is the only North and South lode yet^opened of any strength aud value.
lheline of the 1st meridian of Montana^has been run and staked along the course of^the vein in the late Government Survey. On^reaching the surface from the shaft and tun^^nel of the Boaz, we seemed to hear the^'mighty man of wealth^ say to the daughter^of Naomi, (the miner,) ^ llearest thou not,^my daughter; go not to glean ia another^field.
THE RED BLl Kif LoDE.
Thislode is also in the lower district, and^from the character of the ore and yield by-^mill and other processes of extraction, seems^to divide the honors with the Boaz. The o-e^differs in every respect from that of the Boaz,^except in free gold, the quartz bring hard and^flinty. The course of the vein is East and^West, and dips, we should think, north, at an^angle of at least 50 deg. The vein is about^one foot wide near the surface, and narrower^at about 100 feet, with pockets or enlarge^^ments in different places, the richer ores being^found in the narrow parts of the vein. Our^visit to tin.- lode was pl^Rsant in the extreme,^from the evidences of activity, enterprise and^labor to be seen on every hand, showing the^faith of the owners iu the richness of ore nod^permanency of vein. Two companies were at^work in full force. The Midas Company have^a shall * tart e-1 and are now down some 25 feet,^by which the vein will be cut at the vertical^depth of 150 feet. Prof. Ward has erected^near the shaft a now and commodious cabin^for tbe comfort of his men, and from tbe din^^ner we enjoyed with them, we say they were^comfortable indeed. Mr. Isaacs' mill on the^creek below is crushiug with ten stamps on^the ore of this lode. We learned that the^first teat yielded $38 per ton. Of the mill of^Mr. Isaac* we shall have more to say hereaf^^ter. The best pile of paying ore, as to quan^^tity, and, with one exception, as to quality,^was tbe last seen. This ore had been taken^from an incline of 100 feet, and baa yielded^several tons of quartz, showing free gold iu^threads and crystaline masses.
Thislode is another rich out-crop in the^same region. We observed a vein of three^feet of dark feruginous ore dipping (an ex^^ception) almost vertical. At the top of the^shaft, we saw an ore bed of twenty or thirty^tons of remarkable even ore f*om so small a^space that it seemed impossible for it to have^been taken out of such a abaft. The yield^per ton we did not learn, but hope soon to be^able to present full statistic* and facU of a^lode of such fuir promise.
Wehad our sober, reflective, moments as^we approached the earliest discovered lode of^the district, caused by the thought that ^ we^too were mortal,^ and descending 199 feet by^inclines and vertical dips, concluded that^^ pale death^ if not en the white horse, was^at least close at band. Tbe Midas Mining^Company have carried a shaft to tbe depth *of^170 feet aloug the line and dip of the lode^which is nearly vertical. Over tbe shaft we^observed a substantial shaft house, with a
mostexcellent whim, well constructed, and \ On the fields of his harve*t the Y,nV^a railroad track to tbe ore yard and dump |forth,*nK^ looj.
pile.Around lay heavy and solid piles of^timber suitable for any purpose demanded in^the mine, and every appliance requisite for a^first class mining enterprise. Descending the^shaft by a substantial ladder, we traversed the^lode the entire distance, sbowing a well de^^fined crevice of at least two and a half feet^wide. The wall rocks are smooth and one^might conclude had been cut to admit tbe^auriferous ore traced by us. The walls are^firmly coated on either side with a layer of^v iled thickness of tough clay, the constant^accompaniment of a true fissure vein. In^looking up from tbe bottom of the shaft to^tbe sky above, the view is peculiar and of^great interest to a practical miner. It seemed^us though we were looking through a four^sided telescope of radiating timbers.

Prof.Ward's mill in the Hot Spring dis^^trict, so frequently spoken of, and of which^so much is expected, is at length completed^and running, although no Ciean up has as yet^been made. The building* are ot stone, the^main buildings being 69x44 feet with an en^^gine room wing 48x26 feet. The crushing^machinery consits of lo stamps, driven bv a^65 horse power engine of the most excellent^workmanship. The stamps have only an S^^inch-drop and fall 75 times p^r minute and^are now crushing two tons to the stamp every^2i hours which can be increased a half a ton to^each stamp. This quick, short drop was intro^^duced at the suggestion of Mr. Countryman, i Oiborne M 1^and is as successful as be could wish. The^superiority of the mill consits in the thorough^pulverisation,concentration and separation of I pern.in*ii^the ore which is accomplished by the rery ,^^fine machinery procured by Professor H. A. j PoT.i *^Ward in California. The pulp on leav- j^ing the batteries passe* over stationary I _^copper tables twelve feet long, having agita- j 5fnd,*^ 1! ^^tors in the center.
