This gtilcu begint, or at least a road ojtens into it, four miles weitt of Fairplaj-, the metropolis of South Park. Four miles futthi r ulong this road run ing up the fruU li, is East liwlville. The L'uhh coittinui'6 webtward ulMut four miles further, w hen it widens and divides iulo two heads, separated from eaeli other by a ridge of hills uImhiI midway bet ween thcstill higher mountain ranges on either fide. These heads run up about five mile further, when both cud in thehigh rang) that crossed over, open into several other gulches running down to Lt-advillc. The left hand continuation or head of the gulch continues to bo kuowu as Horse shoe, from a gigantic horseshoe forma tion of the mountains at its extreme head. The right baud branch is known as Four Mile gulch. Over the mount bins ou the north side of this gulch is Sac ramento gulch, to the north again is Dig Sacramento gulch. North of that, Penn sylvania gulch, and north again is the famous Mosquito pass, over which lies the shortest stage route from Fairplayto Lcadville, and on which occasionally the stages are halted by highwaymen who relieve the passengers of any valuable articles they may have on hand. Mining is actively carried on in these gulches, especially in Haeramen to, where a mine of that name employs some eighty miners, the ore being shipped iu sacks to the nearest station, Hamilton, on the South P. railroad, six miles cast of Fair play, and thence transported by rail to the Denver smelting works. This oro is of high enough grade to warrant this expensive transportation. The impracticability of getting ore out of the Horseshoe Gulch, renders its smelting there a necessity, and its vast mineral wealth has not leen developed to any extent for lack of ti smelter. This difllculty will not exist next season, as Judge J. II. II. McFcrran, of Colorado Spriugs, one of the wealthy men of the mineral Siate, has just erected a smelter at East Lcndviilc, which ywusitc he also owns, and will put his smelter in full operation as early next season as the weather permits. This will itself cause a great development of mining claims in that locality, and an advance of 10 to 50 per cent, in their market value. Judge McForran is alo the fortunate owner of one of the richest mines in Col orado, the Peerless, situated at the head of Horseshoe Gulch. This mine is opened to a depth of thirty-two feet, with an av erage width of thirty feet, and the bot tom, and the Bides to within six feet of the surface, are solid ore, assaylug 1 ounces of silver and 50 per cent, of lead, and how much deeper and wider the deposit is can only be determined by cx tending the excavations. Ho has let contract for the taking out, this winter, of 1,000 tons of this ore, to show the rich jiess of the mine, and intends to form e joint stock company to wperate the mine, the smelter, and build up the town, to gether. The Crusader, an equally rich mine, lies near the rccrlcss. Good speci mens of the ore assay 280 ounces of silver to the ton, and it is not opened more than thirty feet into the mountalu. Though the capitalists who rush to Lcadville can- not bo induced to climb the steep range und look at Horseshoe Gulch mines, and though a mine iu Horseshoe that they now would not pay $5,000 for would sell readily.in a Lcadville gulch, for 100,000, the facta arc that Horseshoe is a richer gulch in the grade and extent of its min eral deposits then the most famous gulches Bought after by Lcadville invest ors, and in another year or two they will lie climbing over the range like a flock of sheep, paying ten to lltty times the sums llicy would now give for Horseshoe claims. Capital goes where capital goes, and that Is aliout the best rule it follows. Another difference between the miner al deposits of Horseshe and Lcadville gulches is that in the former prospectors who do not get paying mineral at the etui of a tunnel or a shaft ten to '20 feet deep, quit it ia djsgust; and in the Lead villc gulches it is a common, tiling to go from B0 to 150 feet down before strik ing a paying deposit. The-mineral i generally quite nc,ar the surface iu the Horseshoe district, and mill run assay of 10 to 20 ounces of silver and 20 to 40 K-r cent, of lead at a depth of ten to fif teen feet arc of common occurrence in Horseshoe, the assays increasing up to GO to 250 ounces at depths of thirty to fifty reel. The famous Little Pittsburg, at l,eadville, with Its immense develop ment, averages 100 ounces of. silver per Ion, and most 'of the mines there average under 50 ounces. , The lack of a smelter and of capital seeking investment where ore could not be rapidly smeltetl, has kept the Horse shoe quiet, and pronators nave until lately had choice ground to locate upon there. The gulch has, however, attracted rapidly increasing attention during the last few months, and prospectors are rapidly coming in, even at this late month of the mining season above timher line. Next cummer will wit. uesa there a sceue of life and activity such as other gulches have leen show ing tho last two years. There are excel lent points along tho gulch for smelters. and an unlimited business for as many as may be erected. There is no better locality in Colorado for a profitable Knu-hin" business, and several of the 0 . l.-iidiii smelter oixTulors at Lcadville are beginning tohnik into the matter. Meantime, before next season opens, many of the prospectors in Horseshoe are entirely out of money, and victuals, clothes and winter quarters are absolute necessities to a man, no matter how many tons.of valuable ore ho may have bo long as the ore cannot be smelted. Hence many of these prospectors are necessitated to sell at bargains that can not be obtained in any gulch where smelters are running. Dicre arc at least one hundred wining claims in Horseshoe showing rich" deposits of paying mineral, and tho dovelopemcnt of the aruldi has only begun. Many of the prospectors are old and experienced miners, who know the value of their claims, and have been holding them this and last season in hopes of being able to PUBLISHED KVKItV FRIDAY AT EMPORIA, LYON COUNTY.

We learn that poor Luther Benson tho, brilliant temperance lecturer who drew such crowds in our city last winter, died from the effects of dissipation last week, at Anderson, Indiana. The above, or its substance, has ap peared in several Kansas papers in the past few days.

But it is of a beautiful silk haired dog lrom uardiu l was to write. I never saw any dumb animal express so much speech, if i may say so, as did our small friend. By talking to and pitying him I could make him weep, and it has been said that when called to dinner he actu ally smiled. That I never saw his tears I have wiped away ! That he had dreams we knew, because I have seen him, like Mab, demolishing the adversary in his sleep, for instance, a rival pet pigeon, whose tail-feathers fell as trophies to Beauty's valor one day. That he could comprehend all he heard was beyond doubt, for, standing myself without look ing toward him, when he was apparent ly sleeping In a forbidden chair, 1 vc said: "A person is on my cushion, aud I desire him to leave it," when one spring would take hi ni out ot sight. I think that chair was an Eden to him, and I've often suddenly entered the room and found it rocking by apparently an invis ible touch, when theagressor, hearing my sep, has plunged under the table, quite forgetting tho moving witness against him, and with one eye asleep woulci watch me with the other. In that sin gle instance his sagacity failed him. but for fidelity, gratitude and love he was unsurpassed. Kindness and caresses were a necessity ot his nature, and in that trait the relationship lietween us was not very far distant. Beauty had the rudiments of conscience, I know-, and a heart, for it was broken at last. I came away, and bis mistress once, long after, let drop on the floor an old dress of mine, He recognized and caressed it with every sign or a tender memory. Time passed aud sue, too, lelt him to the kind care oi Mrs. F , who was good enough to write to us respecting him. Ho was un happy and anxious, looking in the face of every new comer for the one he wish ed to see. At last he only drank, but re fused .to cat, and piued away. One day he stood awhile gazing earnestly at Airs. P . as she wrote, lookinsr iust as if he said, xou have been very kind to me, but they don t come back good by,' then crept on to his cushion, lay down quietly, aud died. Tarnc's Command Reached.

The election for supreme judge and county officers passed off very qiuetly, not more than half a vote being polled. T he returns come in slowly, but the indications are that, the Republicans have carried the' state Gov. Routt, chairman ofthe Republican state committee, estimates the majority for Beck, for supreme judge at 5,000, a gaiu of two thousand over last year's vote. In Arapahoe county the Republi cans elected every man: also in Gilpin, Aeld and Laramie counties. In Las Animas the Democrats fall behind last year's vote full 200. There was little in terest in the contest, as the state ticket contained but one name, that of Beck. Th Massacre at the Agency. L8 Pinos Agency. Col.. Oct. 5.

In your issue of this morning, I noticed a communication on the above subject signed II in which there are many mis representations. Mr. Wolff drove four heats, and did not win one. and expressed himself satisfied with the rulings of the judges in all but the last heat, which was a close one lietween liender and the Maid, and was given to the latter. In the other three heats the Maid was set back to fourth place for foul driving. As to the threats of Mr. Kneebs, the owner of Da kota Maid, and the feud existing between him and Mr. Wolff, we understand that they arose from some dissatisfaction m regard to the decision or the judges at r.mporia, and was something we were not accountable for.

People do not usually go to omcial reiorta for amusement; anu there is an idea generally prevalent that statistics are dry. But now and then the reports of public business have really some juice in them. There is, after all a romance hidden under masses of offi cial figures, if one would take the troub le to dig it out: and perhaps no reports contain more interesting curiosities than those of the post ufiiec. Since Sir Row land Hill indurEnglaiid to set an ex. ample of cheap postage to all the world nearly forty years ago, the pstollice has becouio a great, medium oi intercourse, a notable instrument in tho tragedies and comedies of life. What histories of do mestic romance has it silently conveyed from place to place! What news of death, and mar riaire. of prosperity and r - j - - ruin it has quietly passed from mind to in hid! A recent report ofthe English postmaster general betrays, too, how lim itless is the popular idea of the function; tn 1m nerfhmied liv lier maiestv's mails. Letters, papers, circulars, sundry goods and parlor ornaments arc not, it appears, the only articles forwarded bv thei medium. During the past year the post office has found itseir carrying live rab bits and rats, moles and tortoises, crabs and bees. It has been burdened with Devonshire cream and eggs, fruit, mince and pork pies, sausages and hose, shoe nails, artificial teeth and china orna ments, geranium cuttings, tobacco and cigars, glaziers' diamonds and notions. One parcel was found to contain a live snake of unwonted! y large stomach On inquiry it was found that a lizard had been "posted" with the snake, and that during transmission through the mails the snake had waxed hungry and swallowed his reptile brother. Human carelessness is somewhat start- lingly exemplified by a year's history of the oost oniee. uver Z-J.uuu leivers were posted in England in a twelvemonth with out any address: and of these nearly t thousand contained money, to the aggre gate value of $40,000 in cash and checks. Thousands of postal cards were sent to invisible recipients, and thousands more were addressed, indeed, but presented blank on the "message" side. Letters with money in them were sent unsealed packages of golden sovereigns lay- on claimed in the office, either by sender or intended receiver. A letter arrived from the United States, addressed "Little Alice, serio-comic singer, England," perhaps with a message from home which "Little Alice" would have given a week's salary to receive. Another came, "To my Nevvy in London," possibly from some rich and irascible country ancle who, receivingno reply, forthwith cut "Nevry" off with a Rhilfing. A letter from Versailles, was lnff. sent to England, with "Please pnt this young man in the right train for I't-nge. As the letter never fulfilled the object, it will forever remain a mystery whether the young man" ever reached Pengs or not. Jilisuirecnuiia mi uimniuui u If-tier have their serious as well as thei comic aide.

The fourth coach escaped with slight damage, and none of the Wagner coaches were injured. Up to noon 18 dead bodies have been taken from the emigrant car aud have not yet been identified. 1 here are at least thirty more who are more or less injured, but the full extent of the casualty cannot be known until all the wseck'is cleared away.

Michiiran, OcL 10. A ter rible accident occurred on the Michigan Central railroad, a short distance east of Jackson, about one o cIock this morning. The Pacific express, bound west, which left Detroit forty minutes late, collided with a switch engine on the main track at that place, telescoping the baggage and express cars and punier the remain imr coaches, eleven in number, on the ton of them. The first coach was filled with emigrants, most of whom are killed or seriously injured As near as can be ascertained, the acci dent was caused by the switchman hav ing charce of making up a freight train at Jackson Junction, occupying the main track with the switch engine aud caboose, understand inz that the Pwific express was considerably behind time. The express train, however, had made np nearly all lot time. Physicians were at once summoned from Jackson to ths scene of the disas ter, and a special train, carrying physic ians, left Detroit at 5 a. m. A large force of the employees of the railroad company, together with a, large numlier of the citizens of Jackson, are on the ground, engaged in the work of extricat ing lodies fcom the wreck. The engineer and fireman of the ex press train were literally torn in pieces, but the engineer and fireman of the switch engine escaped injury by jump ing from the engine. The train was made up of seven Wagner fleejiers, four passenger coaches, and mail and baggage cars. The tender ot the express engine was telecoicd into the baggage ear about half its length. This car in turn forced its way into the mail car, and crowded the first passenger coach to the right on the embankment, and crushed back through the two following.
