LOWER OT SPRIiNG DISTRICT AND SURROUNDINGS,
MADISON COUNTY, N. T.
wm. T. LOVRLL..
We are indebted to J. L. Corbett Civil and
Mining Engineer of Virginia City, for very
many items and facts that we give below, re
garding this district for which he will please
accept our thanks.
3OUNDAaRIZ or DISTRICT.
The district should commence at the junc
tion of Burnt Crcek with Hot Springs Creek,
thence following Burnt Creek along the (al
latin road to the summit of the divide separa
ting Meadow Creek from Hot Spring, thence
due eest to the Meadow river, thence (ret upn
ing to the junctions of Hat Spring antl Iurnt
Creeks) north two miles, thence ea-t to the
Madison river, thence up said river to the in
tersection of the south line. The above
seemed to us to embrace what is now called
the lower Hot Spring and is as distinct and
well delned a boundary as can be given, em
bracing the belts of lodes that properly be
long there, and convenient for all practical
The sections embracel by the boundaris
given may be said to be that of gently rolling
hills of moderate height, destatute of tim
tber, but abounding in the most nutritious
grasses, every where well watered by gurgling
streams and crystal springs. The vallies are
all wide and smooth, now and then preeent
iug evidences of wash, and near the head of

may be seen what by the mountaineer is called
a Park, but we should call it a Grove, ones the
f:Lvorite haunt of the wild and timid antelope
and deer, as well the bison and elk. 'hes~
have been all frightened aw.ir by the busy
prospector and the constant clatter of the
mill, to other and more retired haunts, but
not more beautiful or seemingly peaceful. It
is only at the head of thus Perk, you observe
on the long extended spur from beyond the
river, the first evidences of any great wash or
deposit of gravel, that would indicate the
presence of placer gold. After the most tor
turous course and struggling effort, the waters
of the district fnd a passage to the siver
through the Hot Spring canyon. The denu
dation seems to have been far lies in the lower
than upper district, and much of the district
not having been sujCeet at any time to any
great wash or deposeiion of either boulder,
pravel, or saed,. he out-crop of the quarts,

The country rock everywhere seemed to
belong to one or the other varieties of gran
ice, and the whole surface, especially on or
near the summit of either bill or ridge, dot
ted with snow white quarts, while at the foot
of the hills and over the plateaus, may be
seen the quarts in place, running in every
poesible directieo. With the hasty survey of
the district made by us during our visit, we
would term it a pleasing landscape, more so
than the bold and grand old hills and rocks
of nature seen so oft in this our own Mon
A short distance below the junction of
Burnt Creek with Hot Spring Creek, is the
spring or rather springs from which the dis
trict derives its name, situated in low, marshy
ground. The volume of water Is not very
great, but sulciently bold and strong to af
ford a beautiful, limped stream. The tem
perstur*, as we were informed, is 124o faren
heit, and a little barckish to the taste. The
medicinal properties, if any, we know not, as
no analysis has ever been made of the water,
nor did we hear of any cures "of the ills that
fleh is heir to." The spring rises in a depos
it of tenacious blue clay. This clay is so
imregated with lime that it has been found
by Mr. Iascs in the erection of the mill and
buildings, to be a superior mortar, requiring
only to be tempered with mad and water.
That in the future, this marl deposit, will
prove not only a convenience, but of great
value, we have not a doubt.

The mill is tavorably located, both is regard

are now open, and being so far from the
montasin ranges, osnot be delayed by any
blockade of ows. The temperastre of the

neatly and durably built, presetig edenace
to the eye of the visitor, of comfort, neat
sess, sad though far away from the centres of
civilisation and refinements even here in this
new and distant land, that indust, prs
veunes, and t will have its rewd. Little
did I suppose when on the 12th of July,
186, I passed by the place, along the well
worn trail of the Indian, I should in three
years return to nd the spot now o:cupied by
a people of my own race, and that the labor
was so guided and directed by intelligence
and science as to produce resnlts that bless
and beefit mankind, and in our " day dream"
we never thought that so soon would the
bright and genial influence of the domestic
circle of home, presided over by the cultivat
ed, refined and Christian mother and wife, be
enjoyed where but yesterday was seen the
brutal savage, and flthy daughters of the
forests. " Verily ours is a life of change."
As we have stated, the mill was crushing
from the ore of the Red Bluff at the time of
our visit; since then, Mr. Isaacs informs us,
that from a run of eight and a half days with
10 stamps the clean up amounted to 238
ounces of amalgam, and the estimated tons
of ore 75. The mill was as we have stated,
erected and started in forty-six days. I'his
dispatch was owing chiefly to the constant
supervision and perseverance of Messrs. Isaacs
and Wann, as well as that of L. B. Olds,
millwright, Mr. Little, engineer, and the ever
h.b Teats. amalramator.
This mill, generally known as the Athens
mill, is situated near the Gallatin road, two
and a half miles beyond Meadow Creek, at
what the people or proprietors have been
pleased to call the village of Atkinville, and
is one of liendry's 12 stamp mills. As this
mill is by the boundaries, we have determined
upon without the district we shall refrain
from giving a further description to such
time as we shall describe Meadow Creek dis
trict, to which it properly belongs.
In our effort to describe the lodes of the
district it is due to candor and truth to say
that our examination was hasty and superfi
cial, owing to the want of time. So taat our
memorandums really show only the following
sames, as lodes that have been Rtaked andre
corded and worked by the owners to some ex
tent, suacient to show that they are general
ly gold bearing, of varied width and richness;
so far proving the richest for the first fifty or
sixty feet, and with a general dip of about
111 to vertical. Beside the Boas and Red
Bluff, we have the Atlantic and Great Western,
Nicholas P., Stella, Opula, Primrose, Brick
Pomeroy, Blue, Capt. Blake, Alice Weeks,
Silver Cord, Willie Lsacs, and a host of others
"too numerous to mention." Most of these
are very promising, especially the Atlantic
and Great Western, with the Brick Pomeroy,
and the Opula; the latter is an exceedingly
rich vein, of the general width and dip of the
lodes of the district, and has yielded from
three tons of ore, by crushing, at Isaaca' mill,
$309.00 of exceedingly fine gold. Work is
being vigorously pushed on several of the
lodes and this winter will tell more than we
can now write of the value of the district as
one of the mining diatricts of the County.
This district certainly possesses many advan
tages for succesful mining. No part of it'
ie too rough for good roads. Deer and im
paueabl.e 5.nw, are uoknown. Water for all
Iractical purposes, and for steam power, is
abundant and convenient. Provender is
cheap, excellent and abundant. The only
drawb:ack is the scarcity of timber and fuel.
The di..rict is, and must ever be, dependent
upon the mountains, six or eight miles away;
but this is in a uneaure overcome by the good
roads and abundant pasturage for stock, to
that wood is but little higher here than it is
above at the upper mills. Another great ad
vantage is the very short distance that the
ores have to be carted to the mill. With such
advautae-, the enterprise and energy of her
people, the great number of lodes and facili
ties for working the same, we predict a bright
future for the district, and that the efforis of
her eterliuno and worthy people must a.&d c ill
be crowned with success.
-Gen. Custar. the Murat of America,
has recently receivced his sentence, which
was fixed by a court martial convened
by Gen. Grant at Leavenworth, Kansas,
in October, but unly A*auely published.
The following charges were preferred
against him by Gen. Hancock: " Ab
sence from his command without leave,
when a movement against hostile Indians
was imminent ; the unauthorized shoot
ing of deserters, unnecessary waste of
horse-flesh, a neglect to succor men of
his command when they were attacked
by Indians, cruelty to wounded men,
and neglect to bury dead men of his
force." Upon how many of these charges
he was found guilty is not stated, but
the sentence of the court is, " that he be
'eprived of command, rank and pay for
one year." Gen. Custar plead not guilty
to all the charges and specifications and
the sentence must indeed be galling to
the gallant, dashing division commander
who said to his men when the rebellion
was ended: " You have captured in fair
fight every gun that has been opened on
you, and turned in over two hundred
pieces of captured artillery." It is said
to be his intention to spend his twelve
months unsolicited leave in Europe.
-Earthquakes are the order of the
day from the tropics to the icebergs. St.
Thomas is " rocked in the cradle of the
deep," forty-seven times a day; New
York gets shaken up lively ; Utah has
its dtty as well as its modesty shocked ;
California has a jarring of its golden
gates, and we wouldn't be surprised to
have a hearing to and fro among our
mountain fastnesses at any hour of the
day or night, Sundays and Fourth of
Julys excepted. It is undoubtedly "the
great Democratic ground swel " we have
heard so mueh about, and nothing but
the application of Grant poultices to the
poll will reduce it.

MR. EDWARD PARSBONS, just returned
from Montana, tells the editor of the
Leavenworth Commercial a marvellous
story. Last July, himself and four com
panions, while exploring the head waters
of the Yellowstone, came upon an Indian
mound, surmounted by a huge stone.
Dislodging this stone and several others,
they found themselves in an Indian cat
acomb, containing the skeletons of thirty
warriors. Lying beside the bones were
numerous ornaments, among them many
twisted circlets of gold. Some of these
were of unusual size, weighing one and
a half to two pounds. Vw hat chiefly at
tracted attention was a massive basin or
kettle that occupied the center of the
apartment. This massive article proved
to be pure gold, and was so heavy that
the party had great difficulty in remov
ing it from its resting place and bringing
it into the upper air. The adventurers
were enabled, by means of their axes, to
sever the mass into portable pieces, la
dened with which the party turned their
steps homeward, having themselves to
walk the greater part of the way, to give
relief to their burdened animal. The
whole amount of gold was brought to
Helena, and Mr. Edward Parsons calcu
lated that his share of the treasure
amounted to $21,000, the whole bulk
being at least $100,000 in value.-Pitte

of the new Chinese Temple in tha*t

the business of furnishing it is in active
progress. The vestibule is furnished
with two large oil globes, inside of
which burn lights which show to great
advantage the cabalistic and heathen
ish figures painted on the outside. In
the inside of the house the furniture is
painted and bronzed and gilded in the
most gorgeous Chinese style. The Josh
in-chief has not yet come from the hand
of the manufacturer; but the little
throne is decidedly such a brilliant af
fair that Josh will prove himself a very
great scalawag if he don't speak well of
it. One of the transparencies exhibits
the shadows of a procession of China
men, some on foot and others on horse
back. representing Celestial warriors or
Celestial saints, we could not learn
