is here that Penwell, Foster & Co. are
erecting a large oorinug mill. The
frame-work is of the heaviest and most
d6bstanid. clhraster, their mazihery
of the best manufacture, and certain it
is their water privileges cannot be sur
passed. They are putting in two run
-d butrs, and it is expected to be- rea&y#
for grinding in about two weeks, and the
fact that the water is fromnwarmsprings
and never freezes, will make it one of
th.. t rliable and valuable in, the
country. The great perplexing ques
tion, and one that has caused some good
natured quarreling among the inhabi
tants of the new burg, is, as with a fond
mother over her first born, in selecting
for it an appropriate name. With all

overlook the hamlet are at the eastern
confines of the valley and are the first to
catch the sun's rays at morn. and their
golden domes are seen at a distance
heralding the dawna of day ere the fiery
disk makes its appearance from behind
the huge wall in the east. In view of
this, then, we suggest that " Aurora"
would be an appropriate name. s could

The MItvs Power- -Seed Must be Sowh --Oper
ations at Sterling Giving Good Promise.
EDITOR PosT : Judging from our re
cent Territorial acquisitions, it would
seem to be the manifest destiny of the
American people, as Washington Irving
would say, to get hold of the almighty
dollar, and use it for thte purpoee ot
spreeghg div~tizsadn to the ntmoe ends
of the universe. The more utilitarian
a nation becomes the greater becomes
the demand for the circulating medium,
as it is the motive power to enterprises
and pursuits of every description suc
oessfully carried on. Labor now-a-days
is considered capital as much as any
other c.mmodity, but it requires money
to utilize it and give it an impetus.
Many a bright intellect lies dormant be
neath a ragged coat, for want of the
means to cultivate it, and the possessor
thereof must of necessity become a "hew
er of wood and a drawer of water" dur
ing his terrestlal existence. I make
these remarks for the purpose of showing
that it requires the Briarean arm of
money to put life in all our operations,
and in none more than in the thorough
development of the mimes of every coun
try, it matters not how rich they may
prove. It is a well known fact that the
lodes in this district are owned,
comparatively speaking, by moneyless
m who are.unable to do such pros.
pn as eaght to be done in pursuit
othe precious metals. Leads are sup
posed to pay the best at a depth of 150 feet
and downwards, and as is requirss
expenditure of from three to five, thoes
and dollars to sink a shaft that distance,
ae pose ma undertake it, hence
. ls may lay concealed till the days

Too much money has been spent thus

Ibe f In lthe ile, whieh tried to
' I~m 11s he boine , bst, t bousted
rather pematurely. It is well kmown
that men have been sent out here by
Eastern capitalists for the purpose of
investing in mining operatioes, who
have not had any experience whatever in
that line of business, and who, on their
arrival here,can hardly tell the difbrence
between quartz rock and talooee slate,
and the consequence is, that thousands
of dollars are uselessly squandered before
they become thoroughly acquainted with
the mysteries of mining. Many of them
too, are called home before they learn
the rudimentary branches, being blamed
for mismanagement because they were
unable to send back returns on the capi
tal already invested. Your remarks on
that subject in your issue of the 25th ult.
were; I think, well timed, and worthy
the perusal of every man who has an
interest in mining operations.
Business in and around Sterling is dull
at present, owing to the six mills being
closed for want of sufficient quantity of
rock on hand to keep them running.
That the sunmijumn bonun is here in
la&ge quantities, has never yet been dis
puted, but it requires energy, persever
ance and capital to make it available
all of which will be brought to bear this
coming season, by the enterprising
S.uperintendents now cinaged in de
veloping the resources of the Hot Springs
district, and if the golden ingots do not
come tumbling into your city by the 4th
of next July in numbers that will astound
you, deponent further sayeth nought.
Yours, II. H. S.
