We clip the following from the cor
respondence of the Chicago Thia, in re
gard to the new " Eldorado," so much
talked of hereabouts :
" Ranger Jack" Is a frontier character,
well known to the miners of Montana,
Idaho and Utah. " Ranger," whose real
name is Smith, came down from the
mountains a few weeks since to visit his
parents, who live in Iowa. "Ranger '
been in the mountains since he was
a youth ; and perhaps there is no person
living who has taken a more active part
in exploring or prospecting our vast
moimtain.domain than this same Smith.
I accidentally met itmth to-day at Ot
tumwa, and having been acquainted
with him for two years in Montana, have
implicit confdence in his statement con*
crning the new diggings.
An old California miner, called Doc.
Leonard, was known to have taken out
several thousand dollars in dust, some
wheselin tlye Wind river mountains, in
1882. Leonard went t.oCalifornia in the
fall, and the secret of hislonesome sum
mer's toilnmong-the Indians would have
died with him had ,not some miners at
Fort Bridger, en route for Montana, no
ticed his well filled purse, and while un
der the influence or chain-lightning
whisky, heard him say something about
mining in the Wind River mountains.
The miners, Smith ,being among the
number, went on to Montana, and noth
ing mere was thought of the occurrence
until lst summer, when a party, con
sisting of Eddy Smith, Maj. Gallagher,
Tom Rein, Jack Connor, and a few Mor
-mons, outfitted at Fort Bridger, and
stared to find the old Californian's El
Dorado. After searching several days
ao the tributaries of the Sweetwater,
the. case nupon mining signs on Straw
berry Creek. An old sod cabin, a damn
bI the creek, an old, broken wheelbar
ra-o, consinaed them that they had
i9uad where Leonard had obtained his
roo of all evil. Prospecting soon eom
meaeed, and in a short time a number of
ricL leads and placer mines were discov
ermd. A war party of Sioux appearing
BOos conviened them that they had im
pdrant business back to Fort Bridger,
d dazing Aagust the Indians held an
diputed hiea. Bat the news soon
e.L from Utah, Idaho, Ne
v da and Montana began to arrive; a
lwge party was soon organised, and
agn.u left Bddsr for the new dggings.
Oa the arrival of this party, the Sioux
smoenly found that they had important
hlers to trmaeact in some other part of
t. country. Two tawns were immedi
etely laid out-Forest (Ity and Ghosho
nee: a district organised; laws passed;
o cars anoixdted.
The mines were found to extend ovei
100 .-uare miles, or 12 miles in length
and nine in width. Only a rmall per
tion nt the surrounding country has yet
been prospected. The quartz is the
atr- . that is found in California, con
ktAring free gold; and if the leads de
eicp as they prospect on the furface, it
will be the richest gold mining camp
a v'r discovered. There i quartzenough
St riu a hundred mills for the next cen
tury. Among the richest leads, tamith
mentions the Ceresa, (supposed to be
worth $10,000 per foot), the Miners' De
light. Mountain Jack, King Solomon,
Badger, Mahomet, and others But few
miners remained during the winter.
Nearly al improved a few idle moments
and came to the States. by way of the
Union Pacific Railroad. The placer
minea so far as yet discovered, are nei
ther rich nor extenive. The best dis
aoverles will not exceed $12 per day to
the man. Only four paying gulches have
-yet been discovered.
Tax Stanton afair, in which A. J. so
.steatly persts in keeping the Secretary

able to do, brings to mind a e.reumtance

Pcribed. It will make millionaires of all inter
eeted in the enterprise. But it is not alone
our placer diaings that we look to for future
prosperity. * quarts in the immediate vi
ciaity of our town will operate still more
largely to build up, strengthen and support, a
ltrge population. The number of our already
tried lodes, will offer proatable labor for
thoeamd of men, and haudreds of mills and
-ielters. At Butte City, a goodly amount of
week is beia done on the ledges, in siaking
and tunnelling. The frame for the new mill
is mostly completed, but the machinery is not
xpecte to arrive before June, next. We visi
tYankee Doodle' Guleh, a shabort time since,
and were surprised to Lad so many person
wintering there. We had bees led to sauppose
that gulch a "bilk," but with pleasure we
learned that quite a number of claims had al
ready pad over wages. We saw over $20
washed out of the sluices for less than aday's
work for two men. Mesrs. Everest, Arm
strong A Co., intend pattin in a lengthy bed
ock lume in the sprang. From Yankee Doo
dle we went to Black 'ail Gulch; here all
labor was suspended. This little gulch will
pay well the coming semson. The water was
conveyed into the gulch too late in the fall
to accomplish much, yet some good pay was
obtained. 5,200 feet of ground and the ditch
carrying the water into this gulch, is for sle
y A T. T. houpe, and can be bought cheap, as
·t.t gentleman wishes to go east as early as
posible Next we visited Highland. Here
we were mot agreeably surprised. Where we
expected to lad little or no labor being per
formed, on account of the depth of snow, we
found all energy and enterprise. Serves A
Marshall were tunonelling and getting out pay
dirt; Overbsy, Buck A Co. do., as well as many
others. In the way of quarts, wonders are
being accomplished ; Wilburn A Co. have near
ly completed the tunnel to their laege, just
below town. This ledge is rich in copper for
a depth of sixty feet, when the copper runs out
and a fne quality of gold-bearing rock is
found. On the Nevins Hill, all is life; a
number of shafts are being sunk to a gool
depth, several already down 75 and 80 feet.
The rock from the Neven, Only Chance and
Gold Excel, will equal in richness for gold,
any rock in the country. The " Westers
Treasury," Burden A Co.'s ledge, has a shaft
75 feet deep, and is turning out good ore.
Thompson, Johnson A Myers, are running a
tunnel to their silver ledge, to tap it 120 feel
deep. Flowers A Co. are potting a tunnel in
to the "Only Chance." Berkney is tunnelling
for the Nevens; McCord A Co. do. Florence
A McCord have struck a ledge of very rich
rock in their tunnels, about which there is a
dispute. Some claim it for the Nevens, oth
ers for the Bendigo, and still others for a new
ledge, and have named it the "Cheyenne."
On the Ballarat Hill, gite as much life is
manifest. The indefatigable discoverers are
running a tunnel to open their ledge about
200 feet deep; they are now in about 200 feet
and expect to strike the ledgein April. Wat
son A Co. are in fine spirits, (and well they
may be,)believing their Ballarat claims to con
tain all they desire. The indomitable Todd A
Co. are running a tunnel to open the Ballarat
on the east line of No. 5, and the east line of
the Arst extension. By these tunnels, the Tul
eve, Ballarat, Bijou sad Foreet Queen, can all
be worked. No lea than nine tunnels are be
ing ran in this camp. En route for Silver
Bow, I visited the Mooe Creek silver lodee.
Parties were at work oa the Tiger lode, now
presenting a crevice about 7 feet wide, at a
depth of about 30 feet. The ore. looks of a
ine quality. On the Parker lode they are
down to a greater depth, with a splendid crew
ice and the inset walls ever seen. This ledge
s rich in gold, as well as silver. By assay,
it has been found to be well worth working
for the gold alose, while it assay over $~90,
per ton in silver. Dr. 8. C. Day and Ben Har
vey have goed ledges hre. On one of their
ledges, the Dr. msy they are down over 60 feet.
The Dr. challenges the Territory on silver ore;
says he will bet y amount on his rock, tkm
for ta as it isquarried out of the ledge.
Surely It almost staggers beief that so much
wealth exists in so small a eoepss of cou
try. Who mca prdi the indues eof throw
ing into the commercial world, the untold and
incalculable millions of MEnasa.

Washbtlaton, Feb. 14.-Attorneyar-General
Staebery in the Supreme Court today, read a
letter from the Secretary of the Treasury,
stating that the Department understood that
the question of the Constitutionality of the
legal tender act, had. arisen in this term of
Court in several caes, between private parties.
As the Government had no opportunity to
present an argumentin ppt of the law,
and a very deep interest is felt on the subject,
by the Government and country at large,
he hoped the Attorney-General would ask leave
to present an argument in support of the law,
before the cases should be decided. The At
torney-en.l sid, owing to his maltifarious
legal duties, he would be unable to prepare a
proper argument during the present term,
therefore he desired the Court not to deliver
an opinion on these cases until next term.
The Court took the matter under advisement.
One of the cases alluded to, involves purely
thoqueetion of ordigary debt, whether a party
has a right to discharge an obligation in le
gal tenders. Another case, argued by Sena
tors Jobusem and Wilson, presents instruo
tions as to whether a debtor can pay taxes in
legal tenders, the State of Oregon having de
cLredall shalln be paid in gold. The thitd
ase, was argued by Carlisle and Wells! from
California, which has a statute declarng all
fdneiary State tax shall be pad in gold.
