The Gardner Copper Mine, Guil

being worked profitably the ores, how
ever, are still smelted out of the State ;
we hope soon to see the whole process
carried on successfully at the mines.
We copy the following from the Greens
boro' Jr'atriot :
The " Gardner" has long been famous
as the most productive of any Copper
mine in North-Carolina. For a long
period previous to the war it was suc
cessfully worked, giving employment to
as many as hve hundred operatives.
We are pleased to know that operations
have been renewed, and with far belter
prospects than was anticipated at any
previous period in the history of the
Entering the engine shaft, with a can
dle fastened. to our hat, and following
Capt. Stafford, we descended the mine
by means of perpendicular ladders.
The pump is in this shaft, the trunk of
which nearly tills it, allowing but bare
enough room to descend with ease.
This pump is capable of throwing off
seventy gallons oi water per second,
and works with the utmost perfection
being driven by the finest engine we ever
saw in operation. The depth of the en
gine shaft is one hundred and seventy
five feet, which brings us to the " level,"
(designated by the depth of the shaft,)
as the one hundred and seventy-five feet
level. This level is seven hundred feet
in length, and connects with three
The length of the vein is about three
hundred feet, and is from two to four
teen feet in width. It presents to the
miners a favorable appearance the lode'
being mixed to a certain degree with
"mundie," which is regarded as a good
indication- In this " level" there is one
excavation known as the w big place."
This is forty feet in length, and about
twenty in breadth. It yields solid ore,
and the deposit seems inexhaustible.
There are other veins branching from
the main level all Of which give promise
of yielding inexhaustible supplies of
ore. Indeed, this miue is a "fixed fact."
There is nothing bogus about it, or
about the management of it. It is be

are assured, pay a handsome yield of"
A Waif upon the Waters. A most
interesting event transpired yesterday,
which will long be remembered by the
parties concerned. As a crowd were

seen at a short distance from the spot
occupied by the spectators, which exci

be a cradle, and when at the instance
of a lady it was drawn to the shore,
was found to contain a beautiful child.

Personal, Appearance of Maximitxian.
A correspondent, writing from tlie City of
Mexico, says : The Emperor, a man thirty
seven years old, is one of the largest men in
the city: tall, straight, and well proportion
ed ; an expert in all manly exercises, espe
cially as a horseman and swordsman, and
possessed of immense physical strength.
which, when lie chooses to exercise it. has
excited the admiration of his staff and the
French Zouave officers, nearly all of whom
have been raised from the ranks for signal
acts of daring, in which bravery and personal
endurance were required. His face it broad,
refined in its expression, and beaming with
?ood humor: and above nil. there is a look
genuine benevolence and kindness which
seldom fails to win those with whom he
comes in contact. The larire blue eves are
full of intelligence, while the high, expansive
forehead indicates a zrsnt brain and correct
judgment. lie is seldom mistaken in his
estimate of men, whose character he generally
penewaies at the first interview. While Gov

these have been frauds upon the sick, for they not

no curative properties whatever. Hence, bitter
disappointment has followed the use of the vari
