(2Gw(i) Vulture Mine, April 21. 1871. I see m your issue ot the 8th, some thing regarding the Great Sexton Ledgp, in Weaver district. I paid a visit to the mine this week, m cc pany with Thos. B. Sexton Esq., (who is now on a visit to his lather), and J. E. Frink, Esq. 1 was perfectly as tonished to find such an immense de posit of good milling ore on the sur face of the ground, and immediately pronounced it a second Vulture. The vein has a bold outcrop on the surface, which can be traced two miles, losing itself in the mesa on the western end, and in "Weaver or Eich Hill, on the eastern, and in the immediate vicinity where so much gold was found on the surface. On the discovery claim of 1200 feet, thc;re are two small hills. On these hills the debris has been re moved by the elements, which exposes the vein to the number of feet above mentioned. I think this body of ore can be safely put down at from 15 to 20 feet thick and all good milling ore which C3ii be extracted cheaply, but shafts are being sunk in different por tions of it, will soon determine its thickness. The ere is similar to the Vulture in every respect, and will mill with the same facility. The advan tages of wood and water are excellent. There has been something like twelve locations made on the vein, all of them showing good ore on the surface. The formation of country rock inclosing this lode is the same as the Vulture. ' I bespeaicr this district a good future, -and' am glad to find that the leading claims havi fallen into good hand3, who can inmediately bring them into a paviujr'position. The greatest care has b?en" taken in the recording, so that no trouble can arise in that direction. THE VULTURE MINE. I am glad to inform you the Vul ture still looks well, and is openim up finely in the Jower levels. It is contenmlated ta bring water here soon so that the ore c2l be reduced on the ground. The Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. The work on this road is being steadily pushed forward, and pas senger trains now run to Seneca, a young and growing town in Newton county on the border of the Indian territory, ;.30 miles southwest of St. Louis. The company commenced lay ing track in the Indian territory and it is contemplated to have the road opened across the Grand river by the first ot July, reaching the next fifty mile point from Pierco City, which will be about three miles beyond Grand river. A force is already em ployed in grading the track beyond that river. The Grand river is to be spanned by a bridge 600 feet long near Car ter's ferry, just below the forks of the Neosho and Spring rivers, which takes the name of Grand river below the junction of the above named two streams. The bridge will be nine miles from the state line, and work on the first pier will bo commenced to-day. Mr. Pearce, managing director, has had constructed six flat-boats for the purpose of transporting stone for the masonry Avork, from fine quarries on the banks of the Neosho, a few miles above the site of the projected bridge. The coimniny have a surveying party in the field engaged in locating the track towards the Pacific coast and it is expected to reach Albuquerque, New Mexico, by the 1st day of June, j Another surveying party is at work on the Atlantic and Pacific, from Fort j Smith, which will strike the Canadian river about ollu miles west or I'ort Smith.

CRAIGIE, nwo 1st Lt. 12th Inf., A. C. S, Matters mi Sonora. We have been: permitted to make ome extracts frcm a letter recently received in Tucson, and written by an observant and intelligent gentleman at Eayon, in Sonora. He says: Our news here may be interesting to you, but may all be concentrated in one word election. There are two candidates in the field, Pesqueira and ' rA Laehora, each confident of suc cess, .f arty spirit is running high and bitter. The old man Gandara is now in Sonora, but apparently quiet. Apaches we have none they are m your "diggings. e have our 4-stamp mill running, which is capable of putting through four tons of ore daily ; also, two aras tras. We have been able to economize the "beneneio" nearly 100 per centum, on a new principle entirely, the secret of which we wish to keen until we are well satisfied of its result. Our mineral is a class of iron-pyrites and the treat ment of its combinations lias bejon problem among metallurgists for many years, and even yet is not satisfactorily solved. We believe we have a method which successfully combines economy and profit. For fifteen tons of ore, fire wood, men, at tendance, the cost is about $15, where as the same amount of ore by the old process would cost nearly $100, and by the old one the loss is at least 50 per centum greater. Thus you can easily contrast the two methods. For the last month, we have had a most chan geable climate; at times as cold as December, at others, like July, con sequently colds, rhewmatism and coughs are prevalent. Two weeks since, we had a tremendous hail-storm. Hail fell as largi- as a hen's egg and lots of it, too. We will have lots of fruit, and hope to see you here in the fruit season.
