Sthe.1ocks it is fund in rough, jogged
pIeces of a quarter or, half an ounce in
,,weight, and sometimes two or three ounces.
At present tfie people are running over
be.country and picking it out of the earth
bere and there, just as a thousand hogs,
let loose in a forest, would root up ground
nuts. Some get eight or ten ounces a day;
ad ~the least active, one or t wo They
.make, the most who employ-the wild In
iaans to .hunt it for them. . There is one
+aUwho has sixty Indians in his em
'ploy; his profits are a dollar a minute. The
wid .lIndians know nothing of its value,
wonder what the'pale faces want to do
vtt it; they. will give an ounce or it for.
the same weight of coined silver, or a thim
ble full of glass beads, or a glass of grog.
And. white men themselves often given an
-onoe of 'it, which is Worth at our mini
eighteei dollars or more, for a bottle of

Plug of tobacco.
As tothe 4iantity which the diggers get.

seven inen who worked seven weeks, and
t*odays, sundays, excepted-on'Feather

Indians, and got out in' these seven weeks
