A BUBBLE PBWKBD
The great diamond awiiidlu of Colorado i
exposed at last. It will long be rein'nibere
as one of the most successful frauds of nnxler
times, ranking with the ingenious imposition
by which Micntific men in other agi | wer
led to believe that they had bought the ai
of transmuting base metals into gold. Th
men who hare succeeded in captivating gr?a
capitalists and competent mining experts hav
showed that they possessed a rascally sort o
alchemy; they have made gold for themselves
tbey have given in ndurn lying stories of dia
mond fields which never existed. Last Sprint?
two sharp California "prospectors,* members o

Statu*, Slack and Arnold by name, madi
their appearance in San Francisco, with tpeaj

were picked up in a locality from which the*
had just returned. They otiered to guid?
thither any agent of pensons who were ?xaad]
and willing to buy this wonderful diamoni
lield. Their stories were calculated to intlanu
tho imagination and excite tho cupidity
of those who heard. JHamonds were blaz?
