Editoii MiNitn: As a roailer of your ad
mirable iiows niudiuin, I oftcr for publica
tion a few thoughts on the mining stock
market of San Fiancisco, to an average un
derstanding of which it is all important;
fir&t, that we should unearth the causes
which led to its descent, and second, how
long the?e causes will continue to exist, or
if modifies1, under what forms may the mar
ket be assailed hereafter with the view
singly to prevent a recurrence of such dis
aster to so important a factor of this Coast's
It is obvious to all intelligent thinkers
that the whole business of mining, viewed
iu comparison with other industrial en
terprises is super-speculative. 3Iiuing,
pure and simple, is an occupation requiring
similar individual training as any other, but
in combining milling and smelting, distinct,
but correlative adjuncts, with it, we make
it a business of more tlinn ordinary com
plc.xity.aud requiring superior talent on the
part of those officials who direct its opera
tions; of the value of its products to our
social system, no sane man will question.
3lr. Carlyslc's remarks, as quoted in the
sermon of Hcv. T. K.iS'oble, to the contrary,
"that we should cultivate our fields instead
of our mint's," it being the quintessence of
folly to think that gold and silver, if only
valued as circulating medium, have not
justified the time, labor, and capital used in
their ptottuction Iroin their discovery here;
sulhce it that the reflected sense and ma
terial prosperity of California and its deni
zens are not inistakeably ignorant of the
value of their mines; but to imprudent and
inordinate progress rather than to merce
nary cupidity 10 possess money (coneep-
lively an idci of success) mavVe attribute
among others a rulintr cause for our present
distress; but ot oth 'rs, and which brings
me ta consider my first rojKhjition, it may
be remarked, the frauduh ut intent of the
bonanza Kiugs was made manifest upon
the declaration of dividends which, meta-
p mricnllv. eats tnecaii m i no cows Detlv.
Millhon dollar dn idends drove mnii shrewd
licnds irom the stock market, the verv air
phoricallv. "eats the cull in thc cow's belly

a collossal purpose can lie best appreciated
by suggestiug that had the owners of Crown
Point, lelcher, Consolidated Yirgiuia, ami
California acted with as much conservatism ! Francisco Call of May 20th, the following
as a good farmer tloea who preserves a rich j very car.ect view ou the future trade ol Ar
farm for his heirs, content with taking one ;,.,- which wa eonv and endorse:
crop er year,
they would have held the
m-nduous rivallinir tlu act of Sampson, who
slew mort' nt his death than in his life,
would fail of its ban est if anything less
than wholesale misery which now pervades
the ranks of those who have tilled the vaults
of thc schemers with jewels of gold, and
jewels of silver; tho sequel to which is, bro
ken friendships, ruined families, and mines
of suspicious values, the capital of a once
happy and progressive people usurped by a
few men who have diverted the wealth of
hundreds better than themselves to the pro
curement of real estate and other solid in
vestments; at which point it may be perti
nently asked, if tho capital once employed
iu mining is withdrawn because bonanza
mines are not considered safe investments
by tho?c who manipulated them, to whom
arc we to look in thc present calamitous
state to inaugurate an upward movement in
mining stocks ? Or what assurance have
the outside stockholders that thc tactics ot
thc past will not be again repented upon
what mav be thought tort uitous occasion;
of course, the lessons of a past are generally
freighted with incalculable good, if with in
tense disgust to those who have been strip
ped in a "light where the victors arc van
quished, and the entire m'uing interests ot
the Coast paralysed; bulls and bears alike .

with them, but it has doubtless left them a
chance of repairing, to some extent, the
evils brought upon their former patrons by
a kind forbearance in settling accounts.
That rigid economy consistent with the
service ofknown talent should be adhered
to. will be conceded by all, when it is to be
hoped that really good and valuable mine
ral property of the Coast will ultimately
bring a restored prosperity.
Respectfully, llv. Eudv.

The Volume op Niaoaua. The amount
of water passing over the Niagara falls has
been estimated at 100,000,000 tons per hour,
and its perpendicular descent mav pe taken
at loO Tcet. without considering the rapids,
which represent a further fail of 150 feet.
The force represented by the principal fall
alone amounts to 10,800,000 horse power,
an amounts which, if it hail to be produced
by steam, would nece?tntato the expenditure
of not less than 200,000,000 tons of coal per
annum, taking thc consumption of coal at
four pounds per horse-power per hour. In
other words, all the coal raised throughout
the world would barely sutlice to produce
the amount of power that annually runs to
waste at this wonderful fall.

by Crazy Horse, who is notably a man of

The govermeat is making the semblance
of an t ilbit to retivc the widespread mis
cry; but the means it employs are wholly
inadequate. An expression of verbal sym
pathy, a grant of money which allows about
u farthing a day for the relief of each case
of distress, and some well-meant but mis
taken edicts, which have had the effect
simply of making matters worse than before,
are thc measure of assistance which tho
Chinese rulers can bestow. The fainino
proceeds in spite of them, and matters are
rendered worse by the iutensc cold which
prevailed at thc date of our corrcapon
deut'js letter, and by thc snow, which lay so
deep as to prevent the eop!c Irom picking
up any of thc wild produce of the soil. As
summor advances and as thc M'ceds begin to
grow and the trees to be covered with foli
age, there may be a change expected for the
better. Meanwhile there is no remedy to
bo found, except in the readiness of the
people to do anything and submit to any
thing that will furnish them with the bare
means of preserving life, and in the willing
but insufficient relu-f fund, which is sub

China and distributed by the Protestant
missionaries in the North."
The cause of the famine is the same as
that from which Iudia is now suffering.
The crops of last summer M ere, m-c are told,
almost entirely destroyed by drouth, and the
peasantry have now come to an end of their
slender reserves of grain and have nothing
left on which they can fall back for sup
port. China is a country which at thc best
of times thc population presses very closely
upon thc means of existence. There arc no
waste stores anywhere. Everything is al
ready turned to account, and when the ne
cessity comes there is little room for any
further saving or reduction. Land and M'ater
arc alike taxed to the uttermost to furnish
food and dwelling space for the teeming
multitudes which cover them. The Chinese
are hard M'orkers, content with slender
fare, and able to put up comfortably M'ith a
general scale of living which would be sim
ply intolerable to Englishmen. These quali
ties and habits, which turn to their advan
tage abroad when they are brought into
competition with other races, are a source
of danger to them at home.

The "Bedouins are becoming troublesome
in Palestine, and there is a panic at Jeru

all, to Trcbizonde on the East .which could
not be long detended by land, and which,
once invested by thc Russians, could render

squadron. Ears is, in fact, the key to Russ
