Ensi.n. IDAHO ELECTION. Returns of the election for delegate to congress from Idaho are yet incomplete, but enough has been received to induce both parlies to concede the re-eleetion of Mr. Feno. So far as we can now ascertain the counties reported, show tbe following majorities for Mr. Fenn.

Owyhee ........................................... Boise ............................................... Total................................................ AI I urns Co., is claimed by the Stnttman to be 50 majority for Clark. No returns from Hear Lake, Oneida or Lemhi counties. No one run tell what will be the reiurns from these counties, but basing estimate» upon results of previous electious, it is generally conceded that all but Alturas will give majorities for Feno and some say «officient to swell bis majority to 600 or 700 in the Territory. in for re* us is WAEI&EN9 QUARTZ. - Mr. Dickinson of Boston returned from Warrens to this city last Monday nigbt. Mr. D., has spent must ufiiis time in War rens since the middle of last August, iu in vestigating the character of the quartz leads there and other tac-ilities for qnartz mining purposes, with a view to making such representations relating thereto as in his opioion tbe facts will warrant to east ern capitalists, as an inducement for money to operate the ledges of tbe camp. Owing to a failure on the part of some who had promised the necessary funds for starting the Rescue Mill, and contrary to tbe expec tations of Mr. Dickinson, he has been un able to test the ores by mill process and hence bis results obtained are only ap. proximate. Again tba condition of several of the ledges was such, the shafts of some being full of water, and those of others so caved io and so little opening had been made upon other veins, that be bas found it in gome cases quite difficult to obtain the best average samples of tbe ores for assay tests. He bus enjoyed better access to the merits of the ores by tests made npon tail ings found at tbe different mills end aras tras, wbere ores from varions ledges bad ' «»nous icuges nan ' be#n worked - I» these be could readily . Ascertain whet bed been lost In tbe mill ling, aud obtain a better average of what. the ores wop Id pay per ton if properly worked. During tbe brief interviews we bave had with Mr. Dickinson since his re* turn we learn that be is decidally averse to having any inflated statements made as coming from him in regard to. the^emines, that he does not wish to induce an impres sion upon tbe public mind respecting the we raine of the quart» of tbe district, ibat the on fats will not warrant. Hia researches by I reason of his not having the facilities' for in a milling tbe ores himself, not having been so perfect as be desired, he cannot deter mine with certainty whet per cent, of tbe metal in the ores can be obtained by the or dinary mill processes, nnd only estimates can be made from the general character of tbe ores, as compered with other ores which be bas reduced in other localities. In different ledges different results have been obtained by assays. In some esses he has only assayed small samples, in others he bas endeavored to reduce to a pulp quantities sufficiently large, taken from every variety of ore in tbe vein, to furnish a reasonable fair test of the whole vein mat ter. From such opportunities affoided him, as we have described above, we are author ized by Mr. Dickiuson to say that nearly all the ledges be has thus examined carry good paving milling ores, some of course are much richer tbau others,* but nearly all are good ores. In many of them tbe gold greatly predominates altho they catry much silver and are quite free from base metal. In a few tbe sliver predominates but nearly ell carry a little gold. The siiuuiioa of many of these ledges is highly favorable for working them by shafts and drifts. Timber and water are abundnn* in tbe vicinity of each. The veins are not large, but so far as examined, are well defined Assure veins and carry a large quantity of ore in proportion to their width. Mr. Dickinson is satisfied that to work these mines properly, much heavier ma chinery is needed, than that now there. His observations of tbe route from Ml. Ida ho into the camp, impress him with tbe belief that a much larger sum of money, than has been generally estimated, will be required to construct a suitable wagon road for transporting heavy machinery iuto the camp. But as we understand Mr. Dickinson does not claim to be an expert in building roads in the mountains. The opinion of road builders differs as to tbe cost of building a suitable road to these mines varying from $10,000 to $25,000. We have never heard of one experienced road builder estimate the cost at more then $25,000, for a rond Such as would admit of transporting the heaviest class of maebinery for a quartz mill. The point of most ex oeosive labor is ex oeosive labor is about ten miles in passing the Canyon of Salmon river. We are uot advised as to the full repre sentations which Mr. Dickinson has made or will make to Eastern men, nor hs to what he will recommend. Cut we are »me that be will state nothing or recommend nothing that be deems calculated to iuduce any groundless hopes of the future pros pects of the camp. He is of the opioion that much money is needed to properly open and develop the real worth of these mines, and that if the people here desire their development, they should sbo» them selves liberal in offering inducements for capitalists to take hold and develop them Hundreds of tUousands of sueep are be fog driven into Arizona from California, but, tbe loss of tbe poor Iambs tn route Irom thirst and starvation is simply frightful. One party recently atarled from Kern county with 8.000 and arrived at Tejon with but 2,250. Another party started with a like number, and suffered even greater decimation. Reports give a very deplorable account of the suitability of Ari zona 8S a stock-raising count y, owing to • he extreme dryness before tbe Samraer rains set in.— ()regon ; an. It is never too late with us so long as we are still sware of nur faults and bear them imfMttiently, and so long as aspirations eager for couquest stir with in us. LAST CALL!!
