A WOMAN'S LOT.
r school mv face to act its part;
My heart I will not bare;
T would not havo you read my soul
And see your imago there.
Our ways in life may never meet
Ah me!- it is a woman's lot iff
To bear tho pain as best she may,
So that the world suspect it not.
Then donot deem us proud and cold,
We women need to act a part ;
The coldest faco, the proudest mien
Full often hides tho warmest heart.
And if we seem too free and gay,
Liko butlerHies as light as air,
Tou curl ycur Hp3 in lordly pride,
And say that we're as false a fair.
When first we lovo we seldom wed,
And oftentimes feel too weak
To go our weary way alone;
And failing then of what wo seek
Despairing oft of what wo would,
Our weary lives and hearts athirst,
We take our fate upon ourselves,
And drain the cup that's offered first.
Then blamo us not if we're too cold,
Or yet t&o gay or light as air ;
Remember, ye who frown us down,
A woman' lot is hard to bear.
.' ' ' WIIITE PINE.
By our exchanges we every week receive
accounts of the great richness of the mines al
White Pine, This region is, no doubt, all that
it i represented, a. we have seen n-ports
written by men of high standing and scrupu
lous inlrgritv, which prono'ince the wealth of
thi" region in terms that appear fabulous and
extravagant. The following is an extract fiom
a Utter to flieSnn Jose Merctiru :
yVo visited tho Eherhardt on Mondav, hav-
inr first obtained a nrtrit from one of ih-
owners at Austin. All that has been writ' on
concerning the wealtli of this mine, we find
more than realized. For adisiarce of 184 fret
tliPie is a maps of hnrn silver and chloride ore,
much of which will woik one-half its weight
in pure silver, and some even a? high as two
thirds. This may seem like a fa'ouloti3 state
ment, but it is nevertheless (mo.
"They commenced taking out pay ore in
May last, since when they have taken out
o,y.er a million of dollars. The mine ceems
inexhaustible; and yet thrre are hundreds of
locations in the same hill which give as fair
promise ni did theEberhardt eiht months ago.
The Superintendent gave us a two pound
specimen which contains over a pound of pure
Another exchange, the Dispatch, speaks of
A KUSH To WII1TK PIXB ;
"A private letter from Chicago state." that
up to the loth of February, thp Railroad Com
pany had sold ten thousand tickets, for passpn
rers to White Pine, to be transported during
the n onth uf March. There will doubtless be
an immense influx of Eastern people as soon
as pring opens. "
Again, account from White Pine spak of
"At White Pin o, on Sunday, February 2Hdr
a man named Van Winkle was fro7en, under
th following cirenn stances: He was running
a sleigh for passengers, between Hamilton and
Treasure city, and during Sunday he drank
to excess. He left Hamilton in the afternoon
without any passengers, and it is sunnnsed
that he fnll asleep and froze. The team took
the' sleigh to Treasure City in which the driver
was found stifT and cold.
The Austin Reveille of Feb 20th speaks of
t EW DISCOVERIES :
We conversed with a person yesterday who
saw at White Pine, several of the men of a
party which had returned from a prospecting
trip to the eastward, bringing specimens of
stiver ore and a very meagie description of the
ci.untty. Our informant states that the ore is
chloride of a superior quality, and the pros
icctorssaid that it occmrel in great quantity.
Their exploratio is were cut short by a severe
snow sto in, and they were compelled io aban
don the (dace in haste, but they intend to re
turn with the first approach of Summer. Of
course the prospectors did notgive an accurate
account of lhe locality where they made the
discoveries, and only stated generally, that it
was near Eagan Carton, or about sixty-6ve
miles east of Hamilton, White Pine. There
ate several organized districts in that direc
tion which were discovered years ago. The
Herculesdistrict is situated in theEagan rane
of mountains, about 1G0 miles nearlyeast froln
Austin, and bordering on the fino and ex
tensive bteptoe valley. Many veins or deposits 1
of silver ore were reported to exist in the dis
trict, and were reported by the discoverers. It
was hlso said that copper oreoccutred in the
limestone insojne parts of the district. All
the prospectersfthat visited this section united
in saying that-teptoe Valley, with its numer
ous water sti earns and lush meadow land, is
thegirden 3rgjt of Nevada. Further south
ward, and Hying directly on the ronte
from Fabratjhgat to White Pine, is the
Robinson disfjfot, which i? said to exhibit ex
traordinary pPtbiiaritios in its mineral occur
rences. Copper, silver, lead and gold ores
were reported as abundant. There are entire
hills apparently of copper ore, and there are
distinct veins of fluor spar in which occur
cubes of galena. We have seen specimens
of the stiver bearing ore reported to be from
the.Robinson district, which were of excellent
quality. About 170 miles east from Austin
lies the district of Eagan, or Gold Caiion. as it
is sometimes called, from the occurrence of
gold in the quartz, It was discovered in 1863,
is very accessible and well supplied with wood
and water; but outside of the property of the
S"cial and Steptoe Company there is very little
development in the District. The Kinsley dis
trict is situated in the Antelope range of
mountains forty miles north-east of hagle
Canon and 200 miles from Austin, on the
eastern border of the State. The peculiarity
of the district is in the rcany massive veins of
copper bearing ore. Sampies of this ore taken
roin the surface are representee, to have
yielded by assay, from $G0 to S10Q per ton in
silver. We believe the Central Pacific rail
road will pass through the Kinsley district.
Directly south of White Pine, and in the same
districts of Grant and Trov, in both of which I of robber3 as k,dnaPPed at DuS ad d
fine silver ore has been discovered In this
vicinity in a radius of 60 miles, there is a

The Herald says that General Van Allen ar
rived at Washington and had a conversation
with Grant on Cuban affairs. Van Allen is the
bearer of important dispatches from the revo
lutionists, and is charged by them with the
work of laying the true state of affairs iu Cuba
before Congress and the President elect. Grant
expressed himself strongly in favor of recog"
nizing Cuban independence, and said that
Spain did us serious wrong during the war, by
protecting and hanboring privateers and block

"We learn that aconflict- occurred at Webb's
ranch, on stonT creek, Colusa county, on the
14:h int., which probably originated from the
Pojid murder. It will be remembered that
S. W. Webb and William Webb were arrested
about a month ago on the charge of. murder
ing B. F. Pond, a neighbor, and who, it was
said, had jumped a piece of Webb's land. Th
examination was held at Colusa, and the Webbs
were discharged. As we understood the story
as related to us, the Webbs returned to their
ranch on the 14th inst., where, befors they
could enter the house, a pat ty of armed men
numbering from twelve to sixteen, opened fire
upon them. The Webbs, however, soon found
refuge in their house, (a log cabin) which af
forded ample protection from rifle balls, An
attempt was made tr burn them out by firing
a barn or granary, which sfood so near that it
was anticipated that the fire would commu
nicate and destroy the house. The assailants
were, however, mistaken, as the log cabin
proved a salamander and withstood the heat.
We fire told that the Webbs remained under
surveillance, day and night, until the night of
the 1 7th, when they passed between the sen
tinels on duty and escaped, leaving Mrs Webb
and a young son in possession of the cabin.
During these days a large number of shots
were fired at the Webbs, bat it seems that none
of them took effect. We did not learn whether
the Webbs returned the fire of their assail
ants, or other particulars, that we have given.
It seems an unfortunate quarrel, and one likely
to terminate fatally to parties on one side or
the other. This murderous assault upon the
Webbs is certainly an outrage which canuot be
justifiable under any circumstances, and must
be denounced by all citizens m Favor ot law
and order. Every law abiding citizen will con
cur with us if the circumstances as related
prove to be correct. Manjsville Appeal,
Ann Swann, the nine feet high giantess, in a
yellow dreis and black velvet cloak, swept ma-
jcctically down Broadway yesterday, looking in
at the second story windows, nhe i3 as graceful
as a swan and seems to enjoy good health, not
withstanding the partial roasting she got
at Barnuni's Museum. She went to get her
picture taken. Of course it was not full
length. The City N,' Y,
livered over to the autnorities of the State. He
offered to bribe his guards with sixty-four
thousand dollars but unsuccessfully.
It is said that Grant did not resign his office
as General of the Array as he considered the
the office expired on his inauguration as Pre
gident. Tn reply to a committee of Rfpubli'
can representatives from the Sou'.hern Slate?,
Grant said there would be a change of military
commanders throughout. In reply to a ques
'ion whether Sheridan would be sent to New
Orleans, he said not now; owing to the condi
tion of Indian affairs on the frontier he had
orJered him to pursue the Indians.
A Denver dispatches of March 3d, says we
we have it from a perfectly reliable source that
Welb, Fargo & Company, mail contractors, will
shorten their line to Cheyenne transferring it
to the route of the Pacific and Denver railroad
as soon as that road reaches the Piatt crossing1.
When the railroad leaches Denver they will
stock a daily line to Santa Fe, Albuquerque
and EI Paso, with a freight line to Elizabeth
town, Tucson and other pointi.

Washington, March In the Senate Mr. coI
fax said: In entering upon the duties of this
chamber to the performance of which I have
been called by the people of the United States,
I realize fully the delicacy as well as the res
ponsibility ot tho position of presiding officer
over a body whose members are in so large a
degree my seniors by age. Not being chosen
by that body itself I shall certainly need their
rssistance, support, generons forbearance and
confidence, pledging to all a faithful and
inflesib'e impartiality in the administration of
rules, and earnestly desiring to operate with
you in making the de!iberationsof the Senate
worthy not only of its history, but also of the
States whose commissions you hold. I am
ready to take the oath. The oath was then ad
ministered by Chief Justice.Chase.
It is estimated that 15,000 people visited
Washington to attend the inauguration.
