Elrro. Po T: \Well knowing as we
$al dio that tle quartz lodes are the great
taples of our young and growing Terri
tory. and upon the development of which
depends our prosperity and success in
sr-iving at the grand object that in
4nu,-,d mcny or most of us to ]eave cur
ctnmf r:able ,mnies and come to this far
.- ,,muntainous country, we, of course,
;,e ircetretl in every new gold discov
er, ,f iimportance that is made within
our b~orders. Taking this as a hylwthe
is I dt sire to lay before your readers
Sshr,, sketch (pen and ink) ofa discov
ey rec.n:tly made on Green Thorn
ct.ek, ab,out sixteen miles from Helena.
In the rariy part of last summer very
.ic cro'pinl of quartz were discovered
,n :he n ,rth side of Quartz Gulch, and
:he 1ir:itris finding them immediately
St, work prospecting for the lode froum
,hich they had evidently fltoted, and
exthau.e ti entire sumier in fruitless
:ab r. They de(spaired finding the hid
Strraour.et and were on the point of
l;au, xnin-" the ilace of their unprofita
ble toil : .ut having heard of the suc
ýc,- at Jack Thompson, the discoverer of
the lamul Eeulrralda, and many other
ch l, ,<s. th,.y decided to consult him
on ,,e sulbj.ct, and they did so. On the
! ,,: N,, net , r Mr. Thompson visited
the ground in person, and after examin
ing it carefully, pointed out the place to
sink a shaft. The parties taking new
Couraoe, at once commenced the work
sccurding to the instructions given them
by thii practical and experienced miner,
ani in lht-. than ten days found that
success had crowned their industry and
that they were posessed of, s rich a
lIue as had ever been discovered in this
vicinity. The crevice is three feet and
thalt wide, and runs t1 a northwest
ant ioutlheast direction, and the rock is
pronounced by all who have seen it to
be N". 1 in richness. It has been named
the " Mexicano."
The lucky disooverers are vigorously
pr ecuting their work,and enatemplate
erecting a mill on the ground at an early
day in the spring.
This is further evidence that energy
and perseverance will find their reward
in :his country that se richly abovads
in silver and gold. MINER.

The following mournful satire, accom
panied by a cartoon representing Napo
leon sadly contemplating the poor little
Prince Imperial, is in a late number of
tire O :l
Yes, the great end is attained. A
crown rests upon his brow-his hand
clasps a sceptre-by his side he wears
the sword of a conqueror. He has shaped
his course through a world of dificulties.
Hte has believed in his destiny, and now
has reached the summit of his ambition
A dizzy resting place, and yet while
new to it he is scarcely able to look
about him. He has climbed so high that
he can see naught but the sun of glory.
He must be something more than impe
rial-he must be Great-great as a war
rior, great as a statesman, great as a
Bonaparte. The purple robes must be
exchanged for the breast-plate, the crown
for the warrior's helmet. The world
must be taught that Napoleon's nephew
is no mean successor to his uncle's for
Deigning to use a dead man's eo as
a ladder to power, still he scorns to go
to his grave without renown. Moreover,
he has traitors to punish-foes to con
quer. Were not the Russians and the
Austrians the sworn enemies to the first
great bearer of his name ? Has he for
gotten Moscow or Waterloo? Does he
not know that by making the foes of Bo
naparte the enemies of France, he secures
for his family thousands of brothers
millions of adherents? It is a desperate
game, perhaps, but it must be played.
If he wins, he claims a palace, the devo
tion of a prince ; if he loses, he falls to
rise no more, or yields up that which is
dearer to him than life-celebrity. And
he plays, and for a while the cards seem
to favor him and he prospers. But at last
the luck turns against him. He finds his
plans unsucceeesful and his people dissat
isfied. And then he throws down his
cards, and looks for comfort to those
nearest and dearest to him.
He who has so often duped others now
actually and willingly deceives himself.
He tries to believe that he belongs to a
family of kings, that his power comes to
him from a long descent. That the bee
has ever been the crest of France; that
the fler de lys has never waved from
the turrets of the Louvre. And he brings
together, to comfort him, the family he
wishes to love him. He feels so solitary
among princes-so lonely in the halls
that have belonged to those who scorn
him as an *urper. And he gathers his
family around him, the family he can
love, the family he can trust, and when
he tries to count their numbers, finds
confronting him naught save the tombs
of two dead men and the face of a child
that is dying.
