Approved July 2C, lbGO. A SINGULAR FORMATION. Mr.Oeorgo Johnson, of Auburn, Placer county, lias furnished Us with some -fact, with regard to auomewhat singular formation which was discovered sometime In September last between apanisli Wry Diggings and ban ish UiTj on the Middle 1 ork of the American river, 1.1 Dorado county. The discovery was made .by a ttarty of miners who were engaged in ground sluicing on the hillside some 1,500 feet above the bed of the stream, and consists of a well defined vein of light talcoae slate, running through a country rock of black, sillcious clay slate. There is no appearance of quartz in the vein, which i from four to ten miles in width, and very rich in gold. It is said that them! men have taken out es much as 134 ounces of gold in two weeks, by reducing the vein rock in a hand mortar and working the same in a pan. I he company is known by the name of Jfoush & Co. Suipfaurcts are often found in slate rock, mMi (ft trrtlrt (flinivi 4tinm mm nr. !.1tM fSnn twaa in jjWtu. naiwv IUUU U AK JllUiltlfclUll ' whateviT of a lode of any kind. It will also ; be ecn from the notice wc have made of tho above mentioned discovery in HI Dorado county, that it j cot always necessary to look for quartz as the matrix of gold. V hen drifting through rock for any purrKxe, any especial change therein should be carefully noticed ; and when sulphuretz are encount ered, there is special reason for expecting to una tnem containing cold in paying quanti ties. An asxay bhould always be made to test their value. It is but a few days since a most vsliwl).)licorery was made tjcst Pla oerville, in a lode deitosit, over which travel had been continued ever rinco 1 849. The de posit was over!oked.feimnlr because if show ed no quartz, which at two or three feet from t6 surface was excecdingij" aich In gold. Miners cannot be too watchful ind observant in their labors ; lh;y doubtless often tufas a' fortune from lack of sufficiently cloc observa tion. Pcruoni who may be ccnvAJsant with anything noticeable in thk way will confer a public benefit by communicating such infor mation throuch the public presn &kntijit PrtM. " SAN FRANCISCO TO PIUESC0TT. Under this head, a very intelligent gentle man and good writer thus discourses of hi journey hither, liis truthful description of our country will be read with interest par ticularly that portion relating to Central Ar izona. The extracts we make are iron: thc- Exfimttitr : " I k,YC aurposel V.abs tained from ronunont. inj; at any lenciu. on ine marKcti imnrovc- tacHt in the character of coantrv travced wiuuta in Anww. overiaaLui uaiuornw. t. .. i. , t .i . . f ri i The stories 1 bad heard ia San Franciseo about the terrible duterts and bad water ted me to expect that the difScultks encountered lie fore reaching the ( otorado river were notiiing ib tBOse to do overcome before reaching 1'res cott. L was, therefore, taken entirely bv surprise when I found that, imesd of sandy dterut and alka.1 water, I was m one ot the most inviting countries it k poib!e for the mind of man to conceive. "It is quite out of th question to describe Sua single letter. aX tjv ndysjitagea hat Ctmtral Arizona possesses, or to esumerate the inducements it oflera to permanent set tlers. As a stock-raking district, no part of me i'acmc to tue itortliward can ven t)car comparison. ICumerous grasses, of the most iHiKriant growth and nutritious deMrnption, cover tin country to the vcrj summit of tho mountains. For sheep," no placo in the world could surpass, if eoual it, As to farminr. if wild grain Is any criterion, this is surely tho tilaco to rukiiati'; fi.r I liuv, uon litinrtiw!.. of acres of wild ryo and oats at a glance, that made rao instinctively look for a farm house, Better crops 1 never saw anywhere, and all to bo lmd lor be gathering from the bounti ful hand of nature Hops are indigenous to the soil, and it would tako a good judge to dibtinguish them from tho far famed Kentish hops, so well known to commerce Ursj-ca exkt here in the wild state, in enormous quantities, and of a much better quality than tho ordinary wild gmj. I havo been at sums pins to obtain the opSukni ef inea well acquainted with viniculture. From what they say, and judging by what I have wen, it would be safe to predict that at no distant date, Arizona would become a great vine rdBcvr The soil k volcanic, and sufllricnt w dktant from the sea to produce a wina far superior to that obtained from low lands, and alluvial deposits, like tho Los Angeles and San Bernardino districts. Some enterprising Germans, with whow I conveted on tbe sub ject of grape gvowiHg, manufactured Jast sea son, a great many gallons of wine from wild grapes gathered in the vicinity of Preaeott, The wine was pronounced excellent by all who had an opportunity of tasting it. l)l might go on enumerating the productions of the coil for an jndefinito jieriod, and still not exhaust tho subject. 1 will therefore tako leave of it for tho present, and make a few remarks regarding Game, in which tho country alounds. Large herds of deer and antelopo are met with every day in traveling along tho road. They do 5t ajipcar to.bo at all shy, but stand nnd gaze with apparent ctirjoeity at travelers, taking care, hoivover. to keep Jutt out of nfle idiot; but they aro NUM1JKR I. not diflfcult to kill if ntiy one takes thu trouble to hunt them, and they arc well worth killing, many of them weighing as much as two hundred jKiundc. I Iwve eaten venison here that had two inches of fat on tho hindquarters, and a flavor that could not be beat. Hare are iiomorous, and very large mountain quail are very plentiful ; and lastj but not by nny mean least, wild turkeys in large numbers are found. A great many havo been killed weighing all thu way from twenty up to thirty-two rounds. Ail these good things, and tho hundreds of miles of good land heretofore mentioned, are to be found in a country that has peon represented to tho Jicople or California, as the Iind of sage-brush and send ; the home of the rattlesnake and lizard, and a place wholly unfit for human habitation. What interest nny one could have in ho grossly misrepresenting Ar'ww, is quite beyond "my comprehension. I took great pains before leaving Jjan Francisco to gain all the information 1 could. I was for a month in daily communication with rneu who profiled to have been here, and all up- " pcarcd to agt'cc that it was the most barren, desolate place to be found ; tnd that no man in his scnec would think of visiting such" an uninvitlngs pot Rut my mind was made up and I determined to see for myself. I am well aware that there are many people, in California who bcliovo these discouraging reports, and they may think, that I have over drawn tho picture. Rut such is not tho esse ; ovcry word I have written in praise of Ari zona can be fully corroborated ; but not by men who spend their time baxktniriu thcr sun at. Fort Yuma or Ia Paz, and when they come to oan r ranclsco c-cnb a country they know scarcely anything alwut. In my nest, I will endeavor to g'ne a ,decription of rrescott, ana the ad lacent mines, liie fol lowing tabic of distances from Los Angeles to j'rescott, will be found BuUHscntly correct for all prac lcal purposes : -MUCS., Los Angeles io El Monte, - - - - .- 14'' El Monte to San Gabriel Creek, - - - ,3 San Gabriel Creek to Mud SpringSj - - 1'4?

LiottT vs. IIeaw, SrjMPi.--We condense tho -following frotc tlis uoiorauo (TrrhjcTF" " AVc could wish tliat sotne of tho money, time, Ingenuity, etc, that have been expended here during tho last two or three years in making and ettlng to work outlandish and impracticable. ra&cbinery s.nd proccsc?, had been expended on the improvement of the stamp mill. That grand old stand-by of all gold quartz countries has actually, webei-icvo been (crowing clumsier, less effective, and more costly all the time. Mr. lfcldcn is em ploying four different stamp mills. Of these, thti old Empire mill, which k like our fiwt crop of stain ii mills having narrow and cloo batteries and 450 lb. stamps dropjtktiL thirty times a minute -Is doing by far the best. Mr. Bcrtola says that thirty years experience in quartz miiling'haa taught him that Colorado lias made the biggest mistnko in tho world in ; investing largely in heavy, slow miring stamps. He says, never make a stamp weigh ting more than 350 lb?. A Singular Qdalitt in Steel. A cor respondent of the Scientific Antrim, says f that he was informed br a nractical mechanic that iiaving wadu a spatulv, or pallet knife, such as is used by artists, and tempered it to mc oiuc, or spnngv.icmper, ue grouna aim jwlfahed it, when it bocsmo aa soft i befoVa tempered. Considering jt worthless, he laid one side for a time, but one day ho'liejd it over tbe fire, in thoughtlessness nntil it was blued, when he found it regained its former elasticity. "" Tho fact may bo new to some of our rcad t, although we were practically acquainted for years with this quality of steel, at least of steel of sorao grades. We believe, howlsver, that cast fttttl, tcnerally, when brought to the blue tcmixT, loses eomo of its elasticity if tho blue is removed from the surface.
