"v' Gold Deposits is Cahada. The provin
cial geologist of Canada, in his report for the
. year 1851 '02, gives an account of gold wash
inga on the river Du Loup, at its junction
With the Cbaudier.in which he states that
' during the present season 1,900 penny.
. weights of gold have been obtained by
.. the company engaged in' working the de
posit. Much time and money were lost in
, ponscquonce of their dam being carried a
way, but on the whole the labor has been
i remunerative. : The other minerals found in
connection with the gold and iron sand, a
. small quantity of plantinum, and irrodiuin
k tyith an indication of mercury.
-', Several 'prospectors,, both American and
" Canadlun,have . traversed the country arouud
and have been successful also in finding thu
precious metal in other localities, but had not
eacceedediu making its collection profits.
' ble. The geologist concludes, from the evi
dence, collected, that the deposits are not
generally sufficiently rich to render their
working remunerative to, unskilled labor;
nd that agriculturists and others engaged
n the ordinary occupations of the country,
would only lose their time and laburby turn
ing gold-hunters.
"This Hahd See STaucn me." Wo
recently keard the following most touching
incident. A little boy had died; his body
. was laid out in a darkened, retired room,
' waiting to be laid away in the lone cold
' grave.
His afflicted mother and bereaved little
, sister went in to look at the sweet face of
the precious sleeper, for his face was beau
tiful even in death. As they stood gazing
upon the form of the one so cherished and
beloved, the little girl asked to take his
hand. The mother at first did not think it
beet, but her child repeated the request, und
seemed very anxious about it, she took the
, the cold bloodless hand of ber sleeping boy
add placed jt in the hand of his weeping sis
ter. The dear child looked at it a moment, car
essed it fondly; and then looked up to her
mother through the tears of weeping oflec
' liou and love, and said; "Mother tkis little
hand never struck me."
What could bo more touching and lovely!
Young reader, have you alwiiysbccn so
gentle to your brothers and sisters, that were
you to die, such a tribute as this could be
paid to your memory! Could a brother or
. sister take your hand, were it c!d, and suy,
This hand never struck inc.1"
What no elevation of oar deepst grief,
when wo ore called to part with friends, to
be able to remember only word" anJ action
of mutual kindness and love. How bitter
must be the sorrow, and how Bcaldingthe
tears of remorse, of an unkind child, as it
looks upon the cold form, or stands at Ihe
grave of a brother or sister, a father or
mother, toward whom heor she, had mani
fested unkindncss. Let us all remember,
whatsoever we sow, in this respect, tliut we
shall also reap. Well-Sprint.
. . Mysterious. A writer from Pnrisburgh,
. Giles county, Virginia, snys: "At a dio
tance of some three miles from this place,
whero some workmen were blasting a rock,
having made an excavation of tenor twelve
feet, the earth gave way , and all were plung
ed into a large room apparently dug out.
At the further extremity of tho room a hu
man skeleton waa found in a leaning pos
ture, reclining, as it seems, against the side
of the cavern, and seated upon something
' resembling a chest. No clue as yet is known
to get at the history of the human relic."
03-A Mr. Mowry.of Auburn, has issued
a card in which he states he has invented nn
arrangement by which the elasticity of com
pressed air can be used to propel carriages
on railroads. The air is compressed by wa
ter power or otherwise, and carried in a tube
or pipe the whole length of the roud. He
also says he has taken measures to secure a
patent for the same.
High Prices. Four aharesof the Colum
bus, Cleveland and Cincinnati Railroad were
lnt week sold at an administrator's sale, in
Delaware county, and each share brought
$127, the original stock being $100. This
is the highest mark wo have yet noticed in
any railroad stock in the Union. But there
is no better stock than this same roud.
