in consequence of the p.sitive demand

EDrroas Posr:-I arrived at Phillips
burg, expecting to see only Old Jake,
(the last man,) but was happily disapl
iointed, and found all the old settlers
in and about the town. Taking a tour
through the mines. I founli the miners
busily at work everywhere, and in high
spirits. The deeper they go the better
their leads are. Up the gulch I came
first to Mr. Freeman's shaft on the - ,
about 110 leets deep. Them comes John
()'beary's shaft about :30 feet deep
They have excellent ore. I visited the
Belle Flower and the Irish Republic
where an imwense amount of labor has
been performed. A tortune is in sight
in each of these lodes. These deep
shafts and good veins are s.suraace that
the ledges are permanent. I am antis
fled that this is as rich and permanent a
camp as there is In Montana or the
world. I also visited Alexander's turn.
nel, where le snd Mr.Edgar were taking
out rich and beautiful ore. and the Hope
lode. and was astswished at the richness
of the ore that comes out of the deep
shaft sunk by James Stuart. it is en
established fact that Old Jake is not the
only man in thus camp. These shalts
swarm with better men. At Yankee
Charley's tunnel near the Iniltal PolnJ,I
found Clharley and Mr. Hadley and the
Durtee Brothers about two hundred
feet under the ground, and hope
these energetic boys will be richly re
warded for their deserving labor. On
the San Francisco, Mr. Estell and Mr.
Freeman were at work. This lode is in
the granite and looks well. Proceeding
to the shaft on the line between Nos.
and 3 on the Rumley & Bugher lode, I
found this opening lookiang fully as well
as discovery. This immense lode is now
open to the extnaote 1200 teet In length,
and the narrowest place in it is 27 ees.

The Valley of Death.
Eightv imiles northwetr from t'awip
( adv. on the Mohave riv'-r. ('alit-arnia.
there is a well known and dreaded
'i).ath Vaile-v. It is .iaid . o te lower
than the level of tie. o.a:, andi t' holly
d.t-titute. otf wat-r. iThe va:tlev is s .,nt
tity tailles wide Ir thirty in breadth,
andl arte at two points, it is wholly ern
circied by u.ountains., p vlhose st'eep
~iides it is imlpossible tor any but expert
ctiniaers to ascend. It is devoid ao, veg
etation, and a shadow of bird or wild
beast never darkened its white glaring
sand. In the early dastv trains of t-nii
gran:s tbound for 'alitornia ias'd. u un
der the direction ot guides, to the south.
of l)eath Valley, by what is known as
the "'O:d Mormo:a load." In the year
I1G0O a large train, with sot-e three hun
dtred emigrants. mostly trout Illinois and
Missouri, came south fromt Salt Lake,
guided by a Mormon. Whien near :Death
Valley a dissent broke out in a part of
the train, and twenty one famailies caime
to the conclusion that the .Mormon
knew nothing albout the country,. so
they appointed on:' of their numn
I.-r a leader and broke off from
the main par*y. This leader
detertmrined to turn du e west, s) with
the people and wagons and flocks he
traveled for three, days. and then de
scended into the broad valley, whose
treacherous mirage promised water.
Th,.y reached the center, but only the
white glaring sand, bounded by the
scorching peaks, met their gaze on ev
.cry hand. Around the valley they
wantdered, and one by one the men died,
and the panting flocks stretched them
selves in death under the hot sun. Then
the children, crying for water, died at
their mothers' breast, and with swollen
tongues and burning vitals the mothers
followed. Wagon after wagon was
abandoned. and strong men tottered and
raved and died. After a week's wander
ing a dozen survivors found water in
the hollow of a rock in a mountain. It
lasted but a short time, then all per
ished but two, who through some mi
racuious cleans got out of the valley
and followed the trail of their former
companions. Eighty-seven persons, with
hundreds of animals, perished in this
fearful place, and since :hen the name
of Death Valley has been applied to it.
A certain political speaker closed an
address in behalt of his party with the
tollowing florid peroration: "Build a
worm fence around a winter's supply of
summer weather: skim the clouds from
the sky with a teaspoon: catch a thun
derbolt in a oladder; break a hurricane
to harness; ground sluice an earthquake:
bake h-1 in an ice-house; lasso an ava
lanche; hive all the stars in a nail keg;
hang the ocean on a grape vine to dry;
put the sky to soak in a gourd; unbuckle
the bellymband of eternity, and paste 'To
let' on the sun and moon; but never, sir
-never for a moment, sir, delude your%
self with the idea that any ticket or par
ty can beat our candidates.
