Perished Cities of Arizona.
Grave of lost ijatiain,! Innd of dread mvstcrvl

Clouded forgetfulnos over tbee sweeps;

Over tbo desert lands lifeless and wan,
Moumlully wnud'rlu:, spectral and toleinti,
Like forae tall ebost .f the cunturies y:one
Listlessly wandering, swaying and sweeping,
Jiauntlu foicver tbe desolate fpuce,
Like some sad mouruer, repretlully weepln-j,
Over tbe grave of a buried race.
Lost to tbe world is tbeir name and their story.
Bright scroll of houor or record of lust ;
Perished forever their fame and their Klorv,
Hidden by at'cs of darkness and dusL
All we may kuow of tby dark, shrouded history
Is that a city has stood on this spot ;
All we may write of thy dark, fearful mystery
"Here bath a nation once lived, and is uot."
We, too, may perish ere Time's full maturity.
Veiled be our ulory from historyVlljrbt;
Cloud and obscurity shroud our luturity,
Dreamless oblivion hide us in uh;ht.
Glory and fame arc but fickle and rotten
Gone as tbe sound of the rolling drum;
We too may pei ish and 6lumber forgotten
lu tiic long lapse of ages to come.
Seas may, sweep over us, desert sands cover us.
Whistling and drifting o'er valley aud plalu ;
Earthquakes may swallow us; ayes to follow us
Search for our name and record In vain.
Armies ma- march to the b:tttlc-call hurried,
In the dim dawu of aires to be,
Over our dust and our monuments buried
In the dark depths of eternity's sea.
Still sltall we slumber, though empires be
Movelcr-s, oblivious, dreamless our sleep
Till tbe Great Trumpet's deep echoes awaking
Summons the dead front eternity's deep.

Prof. Atwood read the following paper
before the San Francisco Microscopical So
ciety recently :
Bustv Gold. Those who have been for
tho past twenty-three years in any way con
nected with the California gold mines, will
frequently have heard the complaints of
miners' mid millmen, that the gold of such
and such a mine or claim was rusty, rebel
lious, coated with some substance that pre
vented it from amalgamating, that it floated
on the surface of the water and mercury,
and that they hud tried all the different
processes in use in tho district, and that
they could not by those methods save the
gold. In speaking of their mines they said
the rock contained so much freu gold, be
sides that in the sulphurets, thereby infer
ring that the gold in the pyritic matter was
I have good reason to know that in too
many cases the fault arose, not from the im
perfect mode of treatment, but that the
rock really contained little or no gold to
Now, the fact is that gold occurs mineral
ized only in telluruim, that there is no ore of
gold except the tellurido of gold and silver,
which is found in such limited quantities as
to be hardly deserving of notice, so that
with that unimportant exception nil thu
gold met with in the different mines of Cali
fornia, exists as a metal, and in that foim is
011I3' luecuauu-ally combined with other
minerals,, existing in exceedingly minute
particles with the arsenical and iron pyri
tes, sulphide of zinc, etc., in consequence of
which, all these require to be stamped or
reduced to a very tine state to liberate it.
I trust by the aid of the microscope and
these .slides which 1 have prepared (as im
perfectly as I understand the use of the in
strument), to prove to you the fact of this
mechanical combination, which is still re
garded by many as an open question.
This is a most important thing for mill
men to know, as it simplifies the treatment
of the quartz rock, and shows, where it con
tains much pyratic matter, the absolute ne
cessity of tine stamping.
1 have for the last forty years been more
or leas practically engaged in mining and
milling for gold, and during that time seen
processes too numerous to mention tried to
save the irold from the most primitive down
to what is used ot the present time ; also
the plan of roasting the vein matter, and the
chlorination process for the sulphurets, or
pyritic matter, and can now fully realize
what time and money might have been
saved had 11 microscopic examination been
made of the vein matter under treatment by
the different processes. In answer to the
complaint of the miner and the millmen, a
microscopic inspection would have revealed
to them that there was no such thing as
rusty gold, and that the float was only
laminated gold, caused by the action of the
stamps, or from other causes, and in that
state exposing a great amount of surface in
nronortion to its weight, und that the pyr
itic matter "had only to be reduced or stamp
ed to an exceedingly line state to free the
gold incased in it, which would then amal
gamate with the same facility as the rest of
the gold in the rest of the quartz. If an ex
amination had been made of the roasted
veinstone, it would have been fomid that a
large proportion of the gold by that process
was in a manner really coated or enveloped
in a slag, and thereby partially rendered
unfit frr amalgamation; I refer to what is
called roasting in heaps.

cent, of the gold contents of the veinstone,
by the simple process of dry stamping ami
amalgamation in barrels, and with a loss of
under 15 per cent, by the Washoe process of
wet stamping and amalgamation of tbe pulp
in pans without chemicals even when tho
gold contents of the veinstone is under S10
per ton. Low grade veinstone will not,
however, bear the expense of dry stamping,
and barrel amalgamation, or even the
I believe when fai rly tested that thc use
of chemicals in the treatment of a large por
tion of the Washoe silver ores will be found
to be as great a mistake as that of allowing
(as they now do in some ot the large new
mills) the pans to do the work of the stomps.
In other words, that the Washoe mills
would get through more ore and obtain lar
ger results by liner stamping and using little
or no chemicals in the milling operations.
The loss in working low grade gold rock in
Australia, from the published reports of the
different mining companies, average about
20 per cent, on eight or ten-dollar rock.
What is done at our California gold mines I
am unable to say, ass in their reports they do
not give either the gold contents or loss on
treatment. I am inclined to think to that
check is kept their workings. In Australia
they appear to work to a profit a lower
grado of rock than is done in Calilornia.
Chekky. A Priest in Jersey City lately
prayed that God would overthrow Grant and
his administration. 0 fcourse this is only the
ravings of one man and the church cannot be
held accountable for ir unless it allows him
to go unrebuked when it by its silence will
be understood to acquiess in his utterances.
If this or any other administration is to be
over thrown there is a legal way of its ac
complishmeut without church interference,
and the sooner this is understood the better.
These people, cotniirj here from Europe, have
no idea of republican or any other kind of
government, except it be at the dictation of
the Church, and church interference in the
Governments of Europe has drenched that
country with blood over and over again dur
ing the last thousand years, and the question
is still unsettled. Our forefathers sought to
form a Government in which tho evils which
have drenched Europe so often with blood
should be avoided, and if there is any idea
on which Americans in all sections of this
country are entirely united, it is that here
the Church must let the State alone.
"In thc space of of one hundred and seventy-six
years the Lower Mi?isippi has short
cued itself bv two hundred and forty-two
miles. That is an average of a trifle over
one mile and a thiid per year. Therefore
any calm per-.n, who i not blind or idiotic
can see that in the OM O diti.- Silurian Peri
od just a million years ago next November,
the Lower Mississippi river was upward of
one million three litiudted thousand miles
long, and struck out over thc Gulf of Mexi
co like a fishing-rod. And by the same token
any person vmi cc that seven hundred aud
forty years from now the Lower Mississippi
will be only a mile and three quarters long,
ami Cairo and New Orleans will have joined
their streets together, and be plodding com-'
fortably along under a single Mayor and a
