The country rock In which these quartz veins occur is either slat.e, limestone or granite. Earthquake forces appear to have fissured the country rock, and these fissures were tilled by injections of auri mclted state from ferous quartz in a the depths of the earth. Hence it is pre sumed the lower down we go and the nearer we approach to the great golden lakes the more auriferous will bo the pay chutes be and tlie more numerous. The Bonanza silver mines and the capitalists who, under counsel of science, have ex pended millions in tuuuelling 25,000 feet under the outcrop ot the Comstock rnitoes, show their confidence in this the ory. They calculate on their vein being better aud better for a mile in depth.— Certainly the bonanza pockets, yielding twenty-five millions a year, are better than those that occurred higher up; If, is significant to gold miners that tli*i (Juki iuoreltscs move particularly at th(j greater (l.-ptlis. At the upper sec tion" the Ooui'tiiek vein anil its bonanzas (rich pocket») were all »liver ; uow, at the lower depths, the ore contains halt Bold and halt silver—iu value, not m weight. The silver being lighter, is sup posed to have been sent uppermost. The great hope for gold mines Is in Im proved methods of milling the ores. Of ioo parts of metal in the silver ores ot Nevada 65 parts are realized ; the re maining 35 parts go to waste. In our gold mines 50 per cent, is the highest average realization ; the other half Is st Practical clfemistry is striving to better. If but Half the present waste eau be realized it will.reopen many an abandoned tut"®- It wiU double the »rotits of all gold mining, and it will the disturbed balance be now to boon restore tween gold aud silver by a large increase in the gold production. At present uo one goes into gold milting on a lower basis than 2S per emit, monthly dividend. To go .into« exploitation of a new mi no when coin is Worth 12 per cent, per an num and wages $3 a day, when one bears all tlie outlay aud all the risk, tor but half,the gold needs a sort of faith that be comes rarer year by year. . But the day we can reduce by one-half the loss of Bold bv defective reduction works all tills will be radically changed, and gold mining will he ranked among the least adventurous, most attractive aud best warded industry of the world. p ATTKBtiON'6 PLEA. nmnvrs WHETHER SENATORIAL PRIVILEGE» WILL SERVE AS a screen.

'laiiJ Two Detroit ministers meet at a blacksmith shop horse to be shod, and after a] hearty baud shake one of them said: "Well, how'il you trade horses?" "Oh, 1 don't know," replied the other, in a careless way. "How old is your horse?" "Just eight years old." "While mine is only seven," said the second "I will also state that he is per fectly sound in all respects know." "And so is mine, but yet I think I'll give you 510 to boot." •'Say S20 and it's a trade." "Oh, I couldn't do that, but I'll make it $15. Alter some further lugging an ex _ made in consideration of that , and the horses were left to be shod aud sent home. After the ministers were gone a few men, "possessed of an eye to horseflesh," looked the animals over. The eight year-old horse was over twelve some said nearly sixteen. The seven year-old one was at least eleven. One had a spavin, a bad hind leg aud the heaves, and the other had corns on three feet, was growing blind, aud showed the presence of poll evil ami ring cone.

AYOUNG PRE ACHER IN TROUBLE Jersey City, Oct. 2.—The Rev. Alfred of the b'ree Methodist Clmroh, of tne ThompH« of Elgin, Jii., was placed in Cells of the Gregory Street Police Station last night. Last spring, the Rev Thomp son's parishioners gave him permission to spend the summer iu Europe. Ue told his wife and family that he could not af ford the expense of taking them with him and he sailed for England, where he was born, in June last, remained there until the latter part of August, when he sailed for home. On the steamer was a most beautiful and fasciuatiug brunette named Mrs. Cobham, married, but» separ ated from her husband. On the passage Mr. Thompson and she had frequent op portunities for dismissing religion other matters, aud the result was that they became very intimate—so intimate, in fact, that on the arrival of the steamer at New York, they went to a small hotel as man and wife. There they resided together until yesterday, wheu Mr. Thompson's eyes were opened to the sin fulness of thehfe bewAH leading,and iulils repentant mood he revealed to Mrs. Cob ham the fact that he had a wife and two ehildren in Chicago. Then he disap peared, leaving Mrs. Cohham undoubted evidence of the sincerity of his repent ance and an abiding interest in her wel fare in the fact that ho took with him 11 sovereigns, a valuable gold watch, aud 5400 worth of jewelry belougiug to her. When Mrs. Cobham became con vinced that Rev. Alfred Thompson had departed she came to this city and placed the matter in the bauds of Detec tive Francis, who, with Ollicer Bo we, subsequently found Thompson at the of fice of John Lamb, corner of Enchange place and Hudson street, New York, ef fecting the exchange of a second for a first class ticket for Chicago. Hu made no attempt to deny his identity nor to conceal the property, which he said, he came honestly by, as Mrs. Cobham had made him a present of it all. He is a young man, ot pleasing address, rather good looking, aud was dressed neatly in dark clothing. He will be taken to New York to-day, if he will go without a re quisition. Mrs. Cobrnan will api>ear against him. •I some ANOTHER BIO FAILURE. Chicago, Oct. 2.—George K Clark, a well-known real estate dealer here, has gone into imnkruptcy on his own peti tion.
