To take advantage of every opportu nity which a oomnnnity, situated like Tuoaott, in the midst of a rapidly devel¬ oping community, with laive and eon atantly increaaiujj commercial iuterests, nonld enjoy, needs organization. The beat form for the eoniHiiinitv to work in an nnotncial way for the general woll- baia i through a Board of Trade. .vow, if any one has a project worthv of om7 iRManlsnisaiTKraaw, or perhaps get a pnblic meeting ealled. Colonel Bivics had to follow taw course in Bet¬ ting his railroad project to the Gunsight and Golf of California inaiifiiraUxl. He fonnd no organized renreHeutfltive body of the Imsmeas men of this citv before whom he eonld lay the matter. It is almost a wonder that he succeeded in arousing jju pnblic from their apn- thy as well as Ce did. The results show the benefit of united and organized eflbrta. We would suggest the organization of a Board of Trade, not for the purposes of barter, or to fix the price of any com¬ modity, hot to discuss question apper¬ taining to the foUire permanent growth and development of our city, eountv aad Territory. The nest few years will witness great changes and rapid atriu. in thin soction of the Union, and to tale advantage of the current of event we can not lie too watehfnl or labor too hard. There are tides in the affairs of citie. as well as men, which, if taken at the Hood, lead on to fortune. We desire that Tucson shall not miss her golden opportunity to make herself the mistress of the commerce of south¬ ern Arizona. We have the advantage of established trade and large capital, and with united action on the part of our people, we can have an assured future. Tucson i not dependant iiku the success and prosperity of some single camp, but the prosperity of all roin'ng camps and every other interest in the Territory. This intimate relation with all sections of the Territory should be mantained. If wagon roads are needed for this purpose, they should he imilL If the tnd warrants railroads, they should be inaugnrated and placed in 'shape to attract the attention of capital The question of railroads we consider one of vital importance, and Tucson should be made the objective point of k many as possible. Then the establish¬ ment of redaction works and other pub¬ lic enterprises need to he planned and worked for. The-? things will hardly eome of their own accord. If our citi sens acting collectively through a lioard of trade, wonld make the necemary effort to secure the data upon which a business calculation could be based, we doubt not a project for reduction works, which would center large capital here, and greatly augment our imputation and bttdnesg, wonld secure the favorable con¬ sideration of moneyed men in the East. If a community cannot see ami advocate its own advantages ami interests it need not expect outsiders to do so. These enterprises are a few of the many subjects of general public interest which would properly eome within the province of a board of trade. Then under its direction, statistics and facts relating to the business of the city and places tributary, could be obtained and placed in snch shape as to furnish valuable information to strangers and other in quest of opportunities to in¬ vest capital intelligently. This woukl prove a great help. This move ought to be undertaken at once, ami not postponed until the hot month) of summer have produced their legitimate fruits; but now, while every body is full of life" and energy and am¬ bition, is the time to inaugurate it. THEAHa California advices the mer¬ chants of San Francisco to reach out for the trade of Mexico, and suggests the establishment of agencies at Guaymas, Hennosillo, Tucson and El Paso for this purpose. One reason why San Francisco does not aectirc more of this trade is be¬ cause goods can be boupht in Tucson to a better advantage. We have mer¬ cantile houses here with ?s much capital and with all the facilities for supplying goods possessed by San Francisco houses. Only that here our merchants carry general lines instead of con6ning their trade to some specialty. Hot this is an advantage to the retail dealer in purchasing, as be can procure his whole stock from one bouse. Send on your agents, Tucson can stand the competition. Arrattbe able Fish Commissioners of this Territory have succeeded in stock¬ ing the Gila river with alligators they might with profit to the country turn their attention towards introducing the German carp into the numerous streams of leaser volume. This species of fish is making its way to all parts of it with great rapidity. Mr. Abel Wright who began with two or three dozens of the carp three years ago, thinks that he now has at least a million in his pond at Griften, Ga. lie has sold more than ofiOO at 330 a hun¬ dred, and cannot keep up with his order, He bears out Mr. Seth Green's asserts that an acre of water can be made as profitable as an acre of land, and it does noteot much to make the experiment. TBB Tucson and Gulf of California railroad rather puts a bead on the bee line advocated by our San Diego friends. Without all the newspaper talk made over the bee line, a surveying party will be on the road between this city and Port Lobo. The tvheme our people are at work on is a business proposition for capitalists, and they see it and are ready te take hold of it. Dakota will he devided and a ortkm admitted as a State.

The popttiatidn of Dakota is very intelligent and there is Httle doebtef their eapMity for self-govern¬ ment InH city will noon emerge from the darkners in which it has been cnveloj-cd-at night for the last three hundred years. This ancient awl honorable pueblo will be light¬ ed with ,iik, nn event which will mark a new era in our history. Our town has I wen called a little old fogy, and in fact very few towns of its size have bo few of the modern improvements, like street cars, gas, water and n heavy in debtednesc. We can dispense with the latter, and we are now about to experi¬ ence the benefits of gas, and soon onr water supply will be perfect. This will place us on a footing with cities of more rapid growth. The introduction of gas will be an eveut worthy "of commemora¬ tion. Onr enterprising fellow citizen, Hon. H. S. Stevens, deserves great cred it forinauguniting this much needed im¬ provement The first illumination of our city with gas will be an eveut worthy of observation, and some public demonstra tion ronldnnt be out of place. Tucson appropriately welcomed the coming of the rail road, and the adoption of modern fib prove in euta are well worth the recog¬ nition of our people. We would offer a suggestion that some steps be taken by our people looking towards celebrating the first successful illumination of our city with gas from the works now in pro¬ cess of construction. Its effect upon future enterprises of u public character will lie lKmeftciaL I'rofhets of evil have many fore¬ bodings on account of a recent shipment of gokl to Europe. There seems to be no occasion for alarm on thai -icrmint. It is true that for several years past the current has been in the other direction and we have received millions from the old world. That could not always be the case. It also looks as if the ship¬ ment was forced and not an indication that the tide has changed. The United States has other sources of gold supply than Europe. Her mines are constantly adding to the stock of precious metals Gold is one of the products of our count i y and its shipment abroad in ac¬ cordance with the laws of supply and demand should occasion no more ap¬ prehension of financial troubles than the shipment of cattle, carels or any other product of the country. There is plenty of gold in this country for business pur¬ poses, and for years to come America is going to oilier the greatest inducements to capital. As usual the Democrats have struck the wrong tack to make political capital when they assailed ex-Secretary Win¬ dow's course in reducing the interest on ovor-duo bonds. The country is not going toque.ition thelegalitv orillegality of the course of an executive officer, who saves the country millions without interfering with anyone's rights. Then Secretary Windom did not act unad¬ visedly, and we think his course will bear the te-t even of partisan scrutiny. So far as destruction of life and maim¬ ing of limb is concerned, the Jeanette expedition has been preeminently suc¬ cessful. One sailor is known to be dead, another prostrated by a softening of the brain. Lieutenant Dannahausen is mi¬ nus one eye, and two-thirds of the offi¬ cers and crew are missing, with the best possible chance that they aro all starved to death. Orn Democratic coteniporaries have considerable to say of the rupturo be¬ tween Blaine and the administration, but nothing of the rapid strides made by the Independent movement in the south. The country will not snffer by any irty disintegations, V) long as one of the results is the obliteration of sec¬ tional barriers as party lines. (JIltKALTAi:. It is about time ex-Senator Sargent was appointed to the Interior Depart¬ ment. He is endorsed by the Pacific slope and we ate entitled to a repre¬ sentative in the Cabinet. It is stated that the Southern Demo¬ cratic members of Congress will oppose the anti-Chinese bill of Senator Miller, because they want Chinese labor to re¬ place negro labor.

There is universal complaint of the insecurity of the county records, lhe various inimrve districts ol tne county will petition the lioard of Supervisors to have a fire-proof vault built. There is now only a pane ot glass oetiveen tne public and the records, and the Record¬ er's office is in the most isolated part of the town. THE Tombstone Nu;;et, from its out¬ set in the special field in which it was established to work, has asserted the great mineral richness of this part of the nation's domain; a position ample sustained by the mining results of the current year, during which seven Ari¬ zona properties have paid dividends more than the amount of $2,435,006 with no assessments upon the shades of a single mine, that we can recollect, during the year. At the same time, the product of the Tombstone district was nearly . 1 Iti Oayetlu -A Memarable Mgbt-Tha Old ILa De Casa Eceerted in Regit Style ror Tventy Miles. Gibraltar, February 8, 1SS2. The last day of 1SS1 was nigh gone, the setting sun of tho same day had east behind upon mountain and hill top, a million rays of ndioa espano, and the twilight that prefigured tho last hours of tho memorable year 1881, was flooding the hills of Gibraltar with its dazed and romantic light, as the vehicle conveying the old man De Casa was hurrying along, in company with nu.v others to thf proposed oasis of reception the ruins of "Casa Do Grande." Here n substantial jKivilion had been arrang¬ ed, lighted by numerous lanterns upon eseh side of the entrance, likewise in the interior and npon the outer walls, glared and flickered the brazen fantas¬ tical shadows of four huge bon-fires, that seemed in their unexplained delir- nms, stiring to eolipso tho brilliancy of comets Umt marked the epoch of a re¬ ceding yoor, and leaping heavenward out to do the guard watch of a million sentry stare in lighting on a New Year. Thus passed the scene as above describ¬ ed when music orchestral, HKR WAOXERIAN. XKNDnLLSIIONIAN straine, livelier, sweeter than ever heard in Teutonic, or even Tarn's Halls came floating through the Pavilion and echoed back from the ruins of the old castles in dulcet echoes, so heart-loosen¬ ing, so tongue-loosening, that two hun dred momentarily silent maidens be¬ came instantaneously two hundred musically garrulous maidens, imd whilst in the act of superceding the renowned orchestra, the queer chore, made her appearance vaucing to the front gracefull the1 Old Sage of Casa, by the 1: led turn to a rot-mini prepare special reception. The old nusic of a of terpsi- and ad- clasped inds, and I for his ntleman, in answer to the united and Expressed wish of the assembled cominny ad' dressed thorn in the following words: Ladies and gentlemen, whpn I wit¬ ness such an array of beatitvlaud gen¬ tleness bo conspicuous at this enter¬ tainment, to-night, I cannot help but be carried baok in thought to the former lays, when I was a witness to similar scenes in tlioe very' castles whoso ruins now surround us sud whose crumblin walls and loosened mortar tells a sad story of greatness passed away, and grandeur that onee existed. These un¬ shapely pillars that yon now see distort¬ ed by weather nnd age, once supiorted buildings, mammoth in di mensions and palatial in surroundings. Even in mv own memory have 1 been a witness of their illumination from foundation to dome and the gatherings upon those special occasions were similar to those which you yourselves form so conspicu oils a art to-night, (namely) the beauty nnd wealth of the land, lint my friends, those were tho days of tho past, these arc days of the present, nnd it is to tho days ot tho future that anyone must look for a progressive regeneration. In speaking to you. ladies and gentlemen, my object and endeavor has been to con¬ fer with yon in words that aro practical, and offer you advice that wonld redound to your future benefit. This weird look¬ ing country which j on dwell in to-day, was previous to the year 17C5, a garden spot of rare nnd exceptionable verdure, daisios and daffodils, vied with each other iu facing tho sunshine ot these. Arizonic and Italy-like skies. A valley of plenty ami a Canaan land of happi¬ ness and enjoyment ia the portion of those who dwelt here, but the products of these silver hills caused her people to lapse into profligacy and extravagan¬ ces, and their pride so blinded them that their steps led daily into ways the most wayward tread. But a day ot account¬ ing came upon the 11th of August, in the memorable year 176U. shortly after a Summer shower, whilst the emblematic rainbow was visible, promissory of a uon-univcrsal Hood, when suddenly there appeared a small black cloud towards the north, which kept increas¬ ing nnd bearing towards the south. At fin-t its approach was silent, then bois¬ terous nnd warring, its ominous march, heralded by angry muttering and clouds biack nnd blacker than the hell gate canopy of nn imagined Hades, cul¬ minating in a report so loud that the Heavens seemed a snaked field of artil¬ lery, lightning, zig-zag and sizzing, wicked in its demonstrations, and ap¬ palling in its illumination of an on-com¬ ing sea connecting heaven anil earth, deluging all that was delugable, uproot¬ ing all that liore fruit or blossom, and mixing humanity with vegetation in one conglomerate heap, liore them against will and without leave from out of the limits of the three Aztecian kingdoms, swept ovor the penss of Gibraltar, surged through the Popogonia Valley, and distributed the foundation of a future generation upon that fer.ile region that borders on the Yaqui River of old Mexico. These utterances may seem strange and doubtful to you, living as you do surrounded by a country so sadly changed from the days to whi'.h I have had reference, bat many arc the landmarks that I could point out to you bearing upon their surface so forcible andsilent a substantattion of my utteran¬ ces that all doubting ones, even be he a Thomas would cry out " Verily I believe." You may ask by what Providential intervention 1 am here to-night as a promulgating, living witness of that terrible and calamitous event of August 1 766, By what merit I existed whilst others perished, this I cannot explain, but this I do not know that whilst work¬ ing in my father's field I heard the unex¬ pected and sudden roaring of winds and as suddenly lifted my hands in ex¬ postulation of its suddenness, but this availed nothing for cloudbursts and avatanchical tidal waves aie elements of ravage and destruction sufE-;entl to scare the people of a whole Hemisphere, and ihrou nto in -tantancous desolation thelaire-i i.ib.:a.ion ot men.

My minutes of recollection were few. I was born: along with thousands of others and by what happy incident, or by what great intervention I was not also a victim, I know not, save that I pleadingly appealed to a "higher supremacy than that of earth, and when I awoke to sensibility from the effects of that ter¬ rible ordeal, I found myself upon one of the highest peaks of Gibraltar with my feet still bathed by the waters of a turbid sea madly seeling egress. It was five days my IriendsJiefore I was released from the positioi. of isolation. I looked around for some one of my former com¬ panionship, but out of that great con¬ course of people once residents of this valley, rot one remained to welcome me from the Atk cf Gibraltar. Now that I have given yon in brier s synopsis of those erentful days long since 'pa.:, let us turn our attention to the present and I lie future. Let as petition the National Government t establish a system of artesian wells awl windmills, the same as existed up to "he year 1776. Three millions . aprrr ..f.i renew xbtti i.elts will brinx to your Territory in two years a hundred thousand population and a half million of people within four years. It was accomplished under the fijg of the Aztecs, it can he repeated and realized under the stars and stripes of a great Republic. Yonr mines eclipse in richness those of Peruvian fame and in America, there is none that excel them. The time is not distant when steel rails w:ll connect the great king on the North to the Port of Sebastopol on the Cali- fornian Gulf, and the shrill neigh of the iron horse trill strangely contrast with the sweet chimes of Gibraltar's bells and the cry of Iresh fish will be heard in the streets of Pinal, Florence, Casa Grande and Tucson. Arizona, ell glided in the flush of her youthfulncss will emerge from her obscurity, and taking her posi tion amongst the sisteihoodof States will shine as brightly as the silver dollar of her nativity," Great applause follow cd these remarks and the sage of Casa Grande bowing a kind recognition of such friendly greet ings stepped from the rostrum to the door, where he was captured by the irrepressible Tcrpsichorean Queen w ith whom he led the dance accompanic 1 by two hundred couple and four hundred terpist feet including the number sixes of your humble reporter, who temporarily casting aside the implements of steno¬ graphy, mixed in tne whirligig 01 a magical dance, and helped in the manner of a skilled artisan to add to the high polish of a neatly waxed floor. Thus enthused by rhetoric, charmed by music ind bewitchinglv entertained by the ladies, your stenographs cor¬ respondent found the sun of the first morning ol 1SS2, peering in rays fantasti¬ cal through the pavilion when recollect¬ ing that he wis but an employee of a leading newspiper of the Territory, and not one of the Princes of the land, he seizeit his book of short bund legerde¬ main along with his hat full of dreaming bewilderment and with a parchment of true recordations vamosed for l.ncle Sam's newsical reccptical to forward to you the sayings of one of the mot peculiar old men of the times of 1700 and 1S00, the prophet, seer and sage of Gibraltar, who outlived the calamities of 1766 and gives sterling advice to the generations of 1881 and 18S2. The United States census taken for the year 18S0 shows the following to be the population of each of thoTerritorics, with tlis per cent of increase of popula¬ tion since 1870. The census for 1870 is also given to show the comparison with that year nnd 1880: per cent 1870 1SS0 increase Arizona O.OiS 10,4 11 318.73 Dakota 11,181 133,180 835.21 Tdaho 1 1,09932,011 117.12 Montana 20,593 39,157 90.12 New Mexico 91,874 118,12023.90 Utah SG.7S6 143.90G 03.81 Whashington 23,953 73,120213.58 Wyoming 9,118 2U.78K J27.9S Theke is trouble between Russia and Germany again. It appears that Bis¬ marck instructed General Von Schwcit- nitz to ask Secretary Vonglers for an ex¬ planation from General bkobelelt aoout his speach favoring Panlavist agitation in Bosnia. Sknbeleff told Vonglers to tell Schwcitnitz to tell Bismarck that he did not know anything about Panslavut agitation in Bosnia, and then ISismarck telegraphed to Von Schwcitnitz to inform Vonglers to tntorm the .zar that he , on Schwcitnitz) might be recalled by th Emperor. It is to be hoped that war will not result from this serious diplo¬ matic disablement. Tin: old reputation of India as the 'sink of the precious metals' appears from an official paper recently published in Calcutta to be well maintained, not¬ withstanding the decline in the imports of silver. It seems that the net imports of the precious metals during the last 25 vcars that is. the amount alter deduct¬ ing the quantities exported have reach¬ ed the enormous sum of 285 500,000 sterling. Last year the registered im¬ ports of gold were nearly So per cent greater than in the previous year, and the largest of any year since 1870-1. This is considered to indicate a return of prosperity and consequent increased demand among the people for hoarding and for ornaments. The specie deposits at the Govern¬ ment Assay Ortice in New N ork, during the month of Januaiy, amounted to $1,- 049.600 in gold including S170.700 in foreign coin and 3104,200 in bullion, and 5739,000 in silver, including $r6:,ooo from Utah, 3193,600 in rehncu bars, 558,- 000 lrom Colorado and 3:4,500 from Arizona. At least 6000 persons of the very lowest grade in the social scale find lodg¬ ings every night in the 150 hotels and lodinghouscs in New York City grouped about the old Five Points. The great majority of them are voters and they are therelore repres:nted in the National House ot Representatives. Since the commencement of iron ore mining on the Upper Peninsula the mines have yielded over 1,000,000 tons of ore, representing a value in the neighborhood of 5130,000,000. There was a masquerade ball at Saw¬ tooth, in the Wood rivet region, recent¬ ly, and there being no women in camp, four miners personated a Chinawoman, an Oakland belle, a negro wench, ind a consumptive female aesthete. Speaking ot Mr. Forbes's lecture on "Kings I have met," a Western paper says that someday ho wiU como across three kings and a pair of sevens, and then he will learn something about the really great resources of the country. THE Secretary of the Interior has modified a ruling made by ex-Secretary Schuz by which any useful timber hereto¬ fore excluded under the rule can now be planted and cultivated under the Timber- Culture act. Losses by Indian Diprcdatlous, Mr.Onry introduced th following bill; To provide for the appointment of commissioners to ascertain and report losses srutained by the people of tho Territory of Arizona by reason of Indian depredations. Whereas it it tho duty of the general government to furnish defense to oach of tho several States and Territories nnd to protect the citizens thereof against in¬ vasions and aggressions from the savage tribes inhabiting our borders ; and Whereas lrom want of such defense and protection numerous depredations have been committed by hostile Indians on the frontier against the people of the Temtory of Arizona, resulting in tho loss of life and property : Therefore, Bs it onacted by the Sonnte and House of Bepresentntivi-s of th United States o!.

The Festive Cowboy. The cowboy's vanity must be dated at his becoming the subject of a Presiden¬ tial message and a special one at that. To be sure it's something like the Cock¬ ney who boasted that the Prince of Wales had spoken to him. "What did he sayr asked a skeptical friend. "Why he said, 'Get out of my way, you black¬ guard!'" Similarly, President Arthur invites the blackguard cowboy to get out of the way of civilization. There is no doubt that many of the Sheriffs in Ariiona and New Mexco are intimidated by the cowboy element and their confederates of the "Good-Lord, good-devil" class. Business men and prac¬ tical miners and prospectors can not af¬ ford to lose time in organizing against the criminal clement, for the reason that the latter understand strategy well enough to ramain quiescent until vigilance sleeps. Beside, they have their spies in every camp and mining town hang¬ ers-on about gambling-hells and ran- mills-who keep them posted on all move¬ ments of the authorities and citnens. Un¬ der these circumstances the only recourse lies with the General Government. The President recommends that the Posse Comitatus Act be amended so as to permit he use of the military in assisting the civil withorities in the Territories to maintain order, and suggests such legis¬ lation as may tc required. There can be no reasonable objecu"n urged to such a course. The Territories are hc wards of the Nation and their guardian Is in duty bound to protect them until they attain their majority and arc admitted as States. It is not pretended, or intended that the extraordinary measures rccom mended shall be applied excepting in the Territories, and then only when impera¬ tively demanded by necessity. There is never any objection to employing the troops against predators- bands of In¬ dians, and as the cowboys are more dan gerous in tlieir way and more difficult to deal with, we trust that the hands of Government will not be shackled on mere party grounds. Governor Gosper underestimated the number of cowboys in Cachise county there must be at ieas: 100 of them not 2; to 50, as he states. In Tombstone, atone, there are usually upward of 25 eeing the eights. Pieir stronghold is the Mule Mountains, convenient to the Mexican border, t roni that point they raid over into Mexican territory and run off hundreds of head of cattle. These are driven to the Mule country or up San Simon alley to fatten on the sue culent pasturage, and, when fitted for market, ire sold to the American butch¬ ers in Arizona and New Mexico. The business is made more profitable and in¬ teresting to the festive cowboys by alter¬ nating the raids occasionally and running American cattle- over into .Mexico, when purchasers are not given much to im¬ pertinent questions respecting ownership When off duty after a successful "clean up, the cowboy amuses himscit in rap¬ turing ami running the smaller towns and miniin, camps. He is a handy man with a pistol, and generally contrives to get the drop on whoever attempts to inter¬ fere with his diversion. In such compar¬ atively populous places as Tucson and Tombstone he contents himself with bucking against the tiger and consuming tarantula juice, occasionally getting "pull¬ ed" for making night hideous with his imprecations or shooting at the moon. I he cowboy who lias not killed his man is an object of pity among his fellows. The "Curley Hills'' hold him in contempt. It is related ol "Curley Hill, who killed Marshal White at Tombstone about a year ago, that upon being arrested he remarked, "I don't see what in h I you want to make such a fuss about one man for White's the twenty-second."' Bill considered himself an injured individual. It is to extirpate the Curley Bills and Billy-the-KkIs that the Territorial author¬ ities, after exhausting their resources. have applied to the Government for as¬ sistance. Arizona and New Mexico are both too rich in natural wealth to permit tnem to be longer dominated by a gang of cattle-thieves, cut-throats and fugitives lrom justice. We, in Cali¬ fornia, are especially interested in the matter. Arizona is one of our best customers and millions of our capital are invested in the Territory. Its free¬ dom from cowboys and Indian depreda¬ tions will redound to our advantage. uur delegation in Congress will sub¬ serve California interests by supporting the President's recommendations with all their influence. Responsibility for any future outrages will rest upon those who. by objections or delays, based upon petty partisanism, leave the Territories to ten¬ der mercies of savages, red or white.

The population of the United States has increased eleven millions within the past year. Sibling in Lead.llle. The mines in the vicinity ot Leadville have all been vigorously worked during the month of January. In most cases the prosecution of a lantj amonnt of explor¬ atory work, and in nuyiy cases consider¬ able attention has been paid to the im¬ provement ot surface worES and the ar¬ rangement ot underground workings, with the view ot handling the ore at small cost Matters such as the above may seeai very simple and hardly worth noticing, nevertheless, from day to day, wo see and hear that mines have col¬ lapsed or worked out On the subject ot tho working ont of mines much has been written, bringing np many exam¬ ples in out-of-the-way localities where facilities for working have not been abundant We will sr.y that unless some system is adopted in the mining of carbonate demisits, the end or a mine is near at hand. Most ot our mine man¬ agers are fully aware of this fact, and in consequence the mines are being thor¬ oughly explored and opened with the best advantage possible, so ns to get out of a mine all tho is worth. Wc also ob¬ serve many mines in this neighborhood are now suffering from tho inexperienced management they have received at the hands of former owners, at the present time causing a vast expense to put a mine into good working order a matter ttmt is eveu more costly than oria, a dozen new minTt) and eveu sinking new shafts. The irregularity ot the carbon- ato deposits make it necessary that tho most rigid system of prospecting should be adopted in every mine, and the larger portion of the miners employed in this prospecting, in most cases only for the future benefit of the mine. We do not say that a mine should only be ex¬ plored, but a judicious combination is what we wish to impress. The relative proportions, of course, vary in every mine. For no law can be laid down, but the axiom we have given is sufficient to show the immirtance ot constantly keeping np a large number of exploratory headings. It is frequently remarked that such ami such a mine is making an enormous output, but let us look into tho case. We but too often find that a certain unrulier c! levels and crossdrifts have been dr.ven, and now the ore is being removed as rapid! as possible at the expense of the future ot the miue; dividends are declared ami the mine and its product consumed. The crisis comes, she is worked out ; the fact really being that the end of an ore shoot may have I wen arrived at, or temporari¬ ly, the pay ore may have narrowed out, giving the appearance ot n worked ont mine, while, bail some ot the money been reserved and put into exploration work, in all probability the mine would never have lieen shut dowu Mines thus aban¬ doned have often been reopened aud worked to better advantage, ami yielded even larger returns than at any time pre¬ viously in the history of the mine. The past month has been productive of rich fruits from the system of prospecting that has been carried on in many of the minos, more especially the mines of Car¬ bonate and 1-ryer hills. While we strongly believe in thoroughly exploring a mine, we do not believe in following very thin strings of ore very long dist¬ ances roil ml a limited space and ulti¬ mately return to the place where the stringer of ore started, working much to the detriment ot the health of the miner and also tothefinaneeof the mine. Snch exploration work iu a carbonate dejiosit seldom yields mnch advantage. While we stroigly advocate prospecting a mine and opening up her resources we much apprehend seeing the prospecting driltn earned forward in the boldest manner possible. It is very seldom an ore body is so small when struck that it requires to be terribly rich before it would pay to go baek aud opeu up tho prospect work which as before mentioned is perhaps the most ranious operation in mining ; on the contrary, the ore body, if worth anything iu carbonate deposits are usu¬ ally of large dimensions, and therefore it seldom does otherwise than pay to ran the prospecting levels and drifts with a view to the future working of the mine so as not to require remodelling, mnch of which has recently been done in the mines ot Leadville.
