Portraits of two New York Bdltors.
TUB EDITOR 0? THE NEW YORK TIHKS. The editor of tho New York Timet Beta out upon bis leading articlo of Thursday lust, thus :? The general sentiment of the Southern preiw, ho far as our notice ban extended, with the exception of the Rich mond Kxamincr, which <mdm to bo edited by a lunatic, and one or two other paper.;, in very earnest in its con demnation of the acquittal of Ward. We might urge against his main charge, that we have condemned the Ward acquittal more emphati cally than aiiv Southern journal out of Keutucky ; but we should no more think of quarrelling with the Times tor a flat falsicatiou of fact, than with a dog for his vomit, or a sow for her slime. And if its editor's allegation of lunacy were his own original conception, and not borrowed at second hind, we Sht escape that, also, under the legal maxim, utn in i< no, fat sum tn omnibus?a liar- in the pu "ticular is a liar in general. It is the habit of stupid prints to denounce pi quant, free, oot-opeahi'ig journals, as afflicted with lunacy; but it has never yet entered the head of any one to accuse the Times of lunacy. Am nig the double sheet duilies of New York city, the Times 1b most remarkable for editorial dalneus. Whatever (he ground over which the editor travels, or tho Sieea at which he goes, whether a dull jog-trot, or a iff", clumsy gallop, the unconcenlahle ears of the great Maltcte usa are distinctly visible. Whatever the covering with which he attempts to conceal his proportions, he cannot get Lis bray mistaken for u roar. Whatever of masculine thought, of straightfor ward, manly independence, or of practical wisdom, appears in his editorial columns, is, without excep tion, stolen from the Hvhaud. Whatever lie 1ns that is literary, according to the Yankee clock standard of taste and elegance, is copied from the wet-blanket platitudes of the Tribune. Whenever he a8]iiies to rcul learning and knowledge, by no means an uncommon thing, he fits him.-siIf out with burglarious implements, breaks into a'British Quar terly, and steals whole pages of its contents, which he serves up with just tue degree of skill that be longs to the cook who prepares bokigua sausage for lunch. From paucity of advertisements, his paper has room for heavy instalments of news, but as to editorial brilliancy, it is Incus ?torn luctnao. He was long a pupil, protege and parasite of the Chevalier Webb; and is, of course, a thorough-bred flunkey. With great natural aptitude for that call ing, he was happy in a patron to school him per fectly in its arts and mysteries. He is perfect in those instincts which prompt a dog to follow and a monkey to imitate, however much he lacks the fidelity of the one or the sprightliness of the other. He obeyed so long the bit and reiu of the Chevalier that be finally mistook himself for the charger that carried the knight, instead of the donkey that stag gered under the pack of cast-off clothes and dirty linen. While under Webb's directiou ho got along ob scurely enough; but, when Webb was once abroad, he broke out in the donkey's unmistakeaMc bray of affection for Cuflbc. When Webb got back he was kicked away from the Courier ami Eryuirer for blatant abolitionism, to be afterwards thrown out of a national whig convention for the negro stench he exnded. When he set np the Times he found it his interest to affect decency aud respectability for e. while?but the effort cost him a great deal of travail, and he had soon to return to his cups. He * as hugely in favor of international copyright, until he took in one of the-Harpies Brothers as a partner, when he forthwith set to eating up his old - words. Since that event his trade, like the Harpies, has been to batten on others' intellects?the trade of brain sucking. He brcke with the Chevalier, but could not escape his destiny. The phosphorescent glimmer which lie emitted through the Courier and Enquirer he had the conceit to suppose he could blsrr into a genuine fire through the means of the Times. Though his mistake is patent to every one -c'se, his stupidity and self-conceit delude him into the belief that everybody takes his beggarly hasl et of plagiarised cat meat for genuine food. He prints Lis paper on a double sheet, after the manner of the Hint alii, sets up lrir flaccid editorials inthe same type, and foolishly fancies therefrom that his paper has the same merit and his produc tions the same sense and ability. Of late lie has taken to wallowing in the filthy abolition sewers and cesspools replenished from the feculent columns of the Tribune, and fane ion thai he is a water-god, a Kuhleboru, with power to raise the tides and con trol the floods; but, in fact, he is become only.a toad| of Greeley, as he formerly was a cuttle-fish ?f The forte of the editor of tbo Times is in plagi arism, and he must be confessed to have accomplish ed all that scissors can do. As his trade requires method, he has never been accused of madness. Lunacy is net an uufrequeut pha to indictments fcr murder, but was never know n in petit larceny. The Sractirers of this small vice never trust to the moon, lough, like the moon, they often shine with a bor towc i light. Takeaway this editor's scissors acd postepot, and \ou get tliat. which naught enriches you but makes hiin poor indeed. Like Turvytop, he dresses after the fashion of the great, spends his life in practising deportment, and deludes himself with the hope that somebody may mista ke him. if not for the l'rince Regent, at least for a gentleman. He aspires to tho hatred of the South. He. has not yet been able to win hor contempt. (Trom (lie Richmoad Fx ami nor ] THE RMTUR OF TL'K TltlBPNE. The editor of the Trtbvmt. is a socialist. A few ?ears since he wan as busy in denouncing the struc ture of free society at the Ko-'.h as he is now in in termeddling with slavery at due South. One day bo proposes to set the blacks free at the South, and tin next day he would abridge or destroy the liberties of the whites at the North. He scorns and scoute the lessons of history, dcridee every form of govern mcnt that the w it of man hue yet devised, and arre gnutly proposes a Utopia hatched in the brains of crazy Frcnchinon and udopte 1 on trust, by ignorant Yankees. And what is this Utopia? Its leading and distinctive object, in vti ich all socialists and communists concur, is to get. rid of free competition among the laboring class. In most eloquent and thrilling language, the .socialists of France, England, and America, portray aud denounce the evils which free com) otiii- n indicts on the masses. As an in stance, we quote the following from AIl >n Lockc< wiittenhyau English clergyman. It is the speech of a chartist:? It is a sin to add our weight tc. the -rowd cf artisans who are now choking and a'rang It-.' each other to death, ?a the prtsoni ih did In the* Idacti ho'.o <<l?

Socialise", communists, chaitia*", and yoting Eng ? lu-hmun, all '"ully and entirely couour that in Irne so ciety by me,<bh of competition between capital and labor on the >ne hand, and the competition between the poor with each other to get employment, "tho rich devour Ibe poor, and the poor eat tip each other." They agree wholly as to the disease of free wociety, and ot !y differ as to the remedy. Nay, they agree further f ::i free competition iru'-t be gotten rid of in some t ay , that its evils are utterly tutoU ruble, und tluil society, as at present constructed, cannot longcxkt. The editor of tho Tribune has. in effc .-t, a thou sand times me t doquently and logically maintained ~tbat the experiment of free society has been a fai lure. lie is tryii.g hard to abolish it, by getting rid ?of frie c,,n petition.

"old. and 'iccome partners in another concern, They have estates tuiiin ail the lands of the South, indefeasible by fine and reco very. We fear, if we draw the parallel any further bctwe< n social!-m and slavery, that Greclev will be t o struck with the rese mblance of his beau uleal, that he will desert the Tribune, and try to become mas ter on a Virginia farm. His paper is so furiously edited that we should regret its loss, and he might rot find slavery so agreeable in practice as beautiful in theory. In such case he might become un rgly customer, and stir up insurrection. V, e will now sum up the evidence against fireelcy under the two counts in our indictment : The first, that he wishes to abridge?the second, that he wishes to destroy tl?e liberties of the workiug man at the North. Free competition, we think we have shown, is the veiy essence of liberty, and he endeavors to rem >ye free competition. This conduct would commit hiin under cither couut. Again, he would establish as sociation of labor and of capital, protection and support to all the members of society, and a quali fied community of property. Now, there and the absence of iree competition, are the distinctive features of neyjo slavery at the South. They never have Icen found in tree loeiety; and, therefore, we adjudge Greelev guilty of attempting to establish slavery among the whites at the Nortn, j _ . just such as now dxists with the negroes at the South. lie need not apply for a recommendation to mcr cv. Never was a society so flourishing and gener ally so bnpj y or, that in which he lives might be but for such loose characters as Greeley. The influential position he himself has attained proves that ge nius ai d energy arc alone needed to win riches and distinction of thousands around him?shows that mere inclm-try and economy will attain wealth an d influence. 'ibe free States of this Union are the asylum for the poor and oppressed throughout the world, and tliev are advancing more rapidly ip population and mnteiial riches, than ever people did before. Greeley Las been guilty of a libel on our institu tions, in proclaiming their failure. He is guiltv of trcaion, in endeavoring to bring about a social re volution, more thorough, more all-pervading, and more destructive of all existing interests and in stitutions, than ever Cutaline dreamed of. Had he lived in Europe, his plea for mercy might have availed him. He eould have appealed to the famines nnd revolutions that have, in horrid alternation, devastated ail Western or free Europe, for the last seventy years. He conld have in stanred the exemption of slaveholding Turkey and Bnssia from those evils. He could have cited the authority of every good, learned and wise man in Western Eurojie, to prove that liberty, or free competition, was the sole author of the starving condition of the working class. He might have said, that all the philosophers of Fi ance and Ger many, and almost all the clergy of England, im pressed with the necessity of the reorganization of society, had become socialists. He might have pointed to the millions flying to America and Australia, from free Western Europe, whilst the slaves of Turkey and Russia remain contented at home. He might have called attention to the fact, that the homeless, homeless masses of free Europe, instead of defending their country wel comed Bonaparte as a deliverer, whilst the serfs of Russia, who nad homes and houses to live in, and masters to protect them, drove him, with patriotic ardor, from their land. He might have pointed to | Russia, now great, powerful, and improving, with Western Europe Cowering and famishing before her. | He would triumphantly have demonstrated the total ! failure 01 the experiment of free society in Europe. Snt they have a crowded population, and lands I are scarce. Here lands are abundant and popula ! tion sparse. Society is not yet in a state of senility | and decrepitude. It is advancing on the wheels of ! free competition with railroad speed. A few middle i aged women and old and infirm men are crashed by the wheels, but society suffers no loss. The general ! prosperity is unexampled. It is true that the North ; is full of men and women busily employed in trying to uproot and reconstruct society; but ! we attribute their conduct to imperfect moral i and intellectual education, and to a wicked love ' of notoriety, rather than to any social evils that surround them. It would be the wise and i piudent course to so frame society now, as to prevent the necessity of securing slavery here after. We believe that may be done. Wc scorn fully repudiate the suggestion that it will ever lie necessary to make slaves of white men in America. Greeley proposes measures that make slaves of them I at once, to anticipate the necessity of making slaves I of them hereafter. TlientrtewJ and Musical.

Our Blhibcthtown Correspondence. Elizabltrtown, N. J., May 23,1864. Charge of Wife Murder in New Jersey?Coroner's Inquest and Acquittal of the Hut hand. Madame rumor caused quite an excitement in tliin place yesterday. Mrs. Elizabeth McCabe, an Irish woman, died sud denly, and it was said that she had been brutally beaten by her husband, which was the cause of her death. Coroner J. Q. Stearns summoned a jury to view the body. They met at the_ court house at 7 o'clock last evening, when the Coroner proceeded to examine the witnesses. I'rom the evidence, it appears that Barney Mc Cabe, who is the husband of the deceased, is a man of very intemperate habits, and when under the in fluence of liquor, of a very quarrelsome disposition, lie was drunk on Sunday afternoon, and got into a quarrel with another man. Ills wife seeiug this, at tempted to interfere, and in doing so she hurt her self. Hhe was far advanced in pregnancy, and the ght on premature labor, treatnunt she received brought on premat when she was seized with convulsions, which Listed until she died. One of the witnesses testified to hearing loud noises and frequent quarrelling be tween tLe deceased and her husband. Another witness was examined, whose name was Martin Coine. He had knwwn the deceased for eight years. He believed her husband always treat ed her well. On Sunday he saw her push him into the house. Believed he was in liquor ; drank him self sometimes; usually drank cider spirits; she tcld him that she hurt herself. During his examination, he was frequently ques tioned by one of the jury for the purpose of ascer taining how much liquor was drank in the house on Sunday, but he told his story in such a disjointed miinner that it was impossible to ascertain one intel ligible sentence. There was no direct evidence given that would warrant any one in believing that actual violence had taken place. The deceased declared that she had not been struck. She continued in convulsions from 9 o'clock on Sunday until yesterday, when she died. A post mortem examination was made by Dis. Crane, Hedges, and Mudge. They stated that they had found no external marks of violence; had examined the brain and found nothing abnormal, except a serons effusion in the cavities of the lateral ventricles, which was, without doubt, the result of puerperal convulsions. The jury retired at a late hour, under a charge from the Cotoner, and returned aliont midnight, with a vei diet that deceased came to her death from natural causes. A. Watering Pl?fw. Saratoga Springs The Sentinel of the 22d inst., says:?Notwithstanding the unpropitious sea son, strangers begin to look in upon us, and we ex pect ere long to see our hotels and boarding estab lishments thronged with company. The presence o^. strangers thus early has imported much life aud ani mation to the town. Congress, Empire, and Pavil lion Springs, contribute their usual quantum of health-restoring waters, and every provision within the power of our citizens has been made to render a visit to the springs pleasant and agreeable. After the long, cola winter which has passed, it will be gratifying to spend a short season in a place so adapted to pleasure as our own village, and particu larly so when the acquisition of health can be joined with amusement. An occasional interruption in business, though it cause some little confusion and embarrassment, will never be regretted, for, here for a while all the remembrances of care, disappoint ment and sorrow con be drowned iu the excitement of scenes whose gaiety and beauty are nowhere sur passed. The largest class hotels and boarding houses will be open for the reception of company, June fust. New Watering Place?Wiliowighby Lash, Westmore, Vt.?This is a place of summer resort with whi< h the travelling public are not familiar, but which fioHi nil accounts we have hail of it, we are inclined to think will soon commend Itself to general favor. Willoughby Lake is about twenty miies above .St. Johnsbury, Yt., from which it is ac cessible by stage, and is within seventeen miles of Island Pond, on the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Rail road, whence there is likewise a stage. It may, therefore, be pleasantly and conveniently reached by way of Portland, or by the Connecticut and Passumpsic Rivers Railroad. The lake is a roman tic aid charming spot. It is situate between two mountains, which rise abruptly to the height of 2,090 feot on one side, and MOO on the other. Thr lake abounds with tine trout, and it vies with othur rn< lianthig lakes and places about-the White Moun tains, in possessing an echo which answers with at least mm a dozen distinct reverberations. The place also affords ull tire poetry with little of the fatigue of a mountain ascent?having a bridle path to the summit of Mt. Anuance, the highest of the two mountains upon hs herders. The water of the lake is deep, clear and sparkling, and the scenery is described us being wonderful aud delightful ri the extreme. A scientific visiter says of it:?"There is nothing in the far-famed scenery of the White Mountain Notch, (the Old Man or the .Mountain perbqps excepted,) nor the passage of the Potomac at Harper's Ferry, nor the deep channel of the Ni agara, or the clui.sm <at Trenton Falls, which pro duced in my own mind more vivid impressions than did the scenery of this neglected spot." But it is no longer to he neglected. Will Rkokkn.?-The will of Mrs. Jane Wilson, ?widow of liars Wilson, of Steubcnville, was set aside by tlie roidict of a jury of'Jcfl'erwm county, Ohio, on Thursday last, fiv this will the residue of her ?estate,after a few small legacies to her relatives, was bequeathed to the Foreign and Home Mission ary Societies of the Presbyterian church; th ? amount of the bequest being estimated nt two hun dred and fourteen thousand dollars, chiefly in ca*h. Mrs. Milson had 110 children, but left a number of brothers and sisters in humble circumstances, who contested the will on the grouud that she was not of bcuihI mind. The will was written by Judge Lea vitt, "f the United States Court, who was appointed executor. A great number of witnesses were ex amined concerning ber capacity, ami the case was trgi ed bv Messrs. Hianton and Jvennon for the rela tive,- against the will, and by T). 1.. Collier and Mere dith for the missionary societies. The jury, without any difficulty, found that the will was not valid, and ti e large estate w ill he divided equally among her relatives.?l'Utsburg Commercial, May. 22. Pr.iyfr and Fasting on Krl'lay.

Truvmau, who de|>o-ed that he has bten a shipmaster over twenty years; h id principally Bailed from New York; had command of the shin Calhoun for two voyages; she was a first class vee sel between this and Liverpool; the prisoners joined the Calhoun in Liverpool in February last, as part of the crew for the trip to New York; they oirae the trip; we sailed from Liverpool on the 22d of Fobruary last, the Calhoun was an American ship; our crew were tlfty tliree, all told; there were thirty-eight or forty able bodied ordinary seamen; our cargo oonslste 1 of lion, dry goods. Ac.; we bad S03 passengers; the Calhoun belongs to Spofford, Tileston k Co.; alter leaving liverpool the steward came to uie and asked me what the creiv were to get; witness detailed the provisions, which consisted of pork, heel, molasses, bread, rice, tee.; after a lew days I heard that the provisions were Using used up very fust, and 1 gave directions to have two pounds of meat weighed out dslly to each man; on the lltii, 13th and 14th March we experienced very heavy weather; the ship pitched about, and thn stores wore knocked about; some of the colli e was strewn ubout, und 1 desired to have it washed; a few days after I was stunding on deck, aud saw live of the men near me?Tompkins, Foivle. Roily, Lioherty, and othera; Tompkins asked me to taste the cof fee, ano raid it was salt; 1 did not taste; told thrm if it was salt they could have tea; 1 said our stores were thn very best; they said they had not enough to eat; 1 told them there were two pounds of meat allowed daily to each of thrm; these lice refused to work; they had bread in the forecastle, to which they had acccesy; next morning they refused 10 go to work; they did not obey me when] ordered them to go to work; they continued for forty eight hours to disobey orders; on the 18th of March, three other* refused to work, and they continued to refuse until the no it day, and I had to submit to their tarms in order to preserve the safety of thn ship and pas sengers; without thuse men who revolted 1 had nut enough cf hands to work the ship; one of the boys who did work was beaten by some of the others; after they did go to work their conduct was very insubordinate during hoiaterous weather: the insubordination con tinued to tlio end of the voysge; the crew luul as much beef and pork as I have ever known to be served out, and they liai more of other provisions than Is generally allowed; the reason 1 ordered the meat to be wolghed out, was to guard against its being used iinprovidently; on arriving here, articles of defence were found secreted In the forecastle; tin y were iron belaying pins and woo len blocks slung In strings; this sheath knife (produced) was tnkeu from one of them after ho was arrested. Other witnesses were examined to the same etl'ect. The defence was, that the prisoners only refused to ilo work whilst they were kept upon short provisions, and that as soen as their rations were increased to the necessary amount they went to work. The prisoners were alt found guilty, and sentenced to two years Imprisonment, with hard labor, in tbe penitentiary. United State* Commlnloner'a Court. Before John W. Nelson, Esq. MUTINY AT BBA.

Upon the examination, Mr. Ridgway appeared for the United .States, and Mr. Geo. M. Robin son for the defence. The testimony showed that tho ghtp sailed from New York on the morning of the l<lth inst., beat to windward, and at midnight on tbe 17th, was only seventy miles from Sandy Hook. At this time it looked squally, and the Captain desiring to take in acme sail, ordered the crew on deck. Defendants oil re fused to come out of the forecastle, saying there was not a sufficiency of crew. Copt. Froal, however, testified that he had two more than his usual complement on hoard, in order to make two full gangs to screw cotton witen they should reach New Orleans, to which they were bound. Complaint was also made that they had not had their supper. This did not appear to be tho caso from the evidence of the Captain aud chief mate. They . continued off duty until yesterday morning, when tho ' master was obliged to put back into port, having failed j in all his endeavors to persuade the men to return to , their duty. The Captain further testified this Insubordi- I nation would cost, in detention of ship, pilotage, steam beat hire, new crew, &c., near $2,000. Defendants wero all fully committed.

Allen gTumblfd and complained about several things, and wanted to know why 1he cook was not in tho cabin at tending tbe tableV lie replied be could not be there and in the galley also. At tins time tho cook was stooping down to take something from tho oven, and Allen picked upa enrvirg knife, and made two cuts at the cook, which cut it s cap.

The way tl.ia fancy stock has t een manage : Ian fair ill istra tion of tba science of stock speculation. A parcel of < pi r .tors get together uud make up what is r:lle.l a tine of j -chase. B> canvassing them: rkct pi v thorough ly they find out Low much stock i.i hold at high prir s and how much at lower prices; how much certain par tics can afturd to holj, and how much stock there s tfieat. AU there important matters being arranged to their satisfaction, more or loss, they proceed to action, and the wires bepin to work. Reports suddenly become current that a dividend will he paid the nevt >:i* months out of the net earnings. Tliore Is never any doubt about this. Tl.c money is always in hand to do it, end a surplus licfirles. Tbeso statements frequently attract attention, and sometimes purchases ato inaoo by out sider* upon a firm belief In their truth. This blips along the movement and relieves the wire pollers of so niui h stock. Au inflation sometimes follows rue.li op. rr tlous, and for a time even thing w orks well. Tie i?.? provement in pilcca Is apparently i- A; aifl fur the p:r poso of keeping the market active, the clique purchase largely at their own advance. ^Aftcr a time prieus be come sufficiently lufln-cl to induce many outside h' l ? to realire, an.) the supply of stock becomes t' o hrge fo bo carlly managed. Notwithstanding this difficulty, the msrket inurt not be suffered to lag or prices to ; ive way, and the purchases of the combination coniinue. 'Iho fact soon appears that they have gut a large portkm of the capital Mock, without any demand In tire market. To 1 t prices town suddenly would produce s panic, end bring out a perfect deluge of stock; to carry such an Im mer.se burden involves most minors sacriflrca, ami the rnly alternative Is to let the market down as easily and ( si gradually *" possible, lb i is a very dlfflcul Mtttr, and cannot be done without serious lose. In nearly every cornering combination we have been acquainted with, some of the clique, more shrewd than others, havo managed to slip out and caddie their associates with their stock at high prices, We have never known a successful corner, even when the fancy stocks were of less magnitude than at present, and we feel pretty confident that such a , movement cannot be carrier! out with more favorable re sults uow. w hen fancy stocks reprc cnt millions of capital instra<t of hundreds of thousands, as heretofore. We allude to these thiDg* here, because a movement similar to that described has recently been perfected by a set of speculators, in the stock of the Cumberland Coal Com pany. It is not impossible but that outsiders may be attracted by the fine stories told of receipts, profits, divl- | dends &e., and be drawn in; hut we can assure them at the start, that it is nothing more or less than one of those illusions, or delusions, which so frequently appear in Wall street. Cumberland may be a good card tor a time; but it will prove a dead weight in the hands of those who may be uufurtunats enough to be obliged to carry it. In other stocks there has been no change of consequence, either in position or prises. There are no indications of any improvement, and the efTort made to sustain the market value of stocks generally, must bo a very strong and desperate one, without great doubts of its success throughout.

The Boston Board of Underwriters on Friday last con cluded to insert the war clause in ail marine policies is sued hereafter. The form generally used by the Boston underwriters is as follows:?

The president of the Vallecello Silver Mining Com pany, of Mexico?Mr. Reynolds?In his recent report to the stockholders, makes tho following remarks relative to the productiveness of mines, and tho feeling gene rally entertained regarding such investments. They are so much to the point, and are so applicable at the pre sent moment to tho position and progress of this impor tant interest, that we give them at length. It is full time those engaged in the pursuit of mining had this vita' question presented to thorn in a proper light. Disap 1 ointment has followed disappointment; all sorts of pro mises have been made, and as frequently broken. Wo do not mean to charge those who have made them with the intention of deceiving; for it is our bellof that it was the result more of Ignoranco than design; hut wo wish to see patience as well as perseverance exercised by those interested, and there need be no fears as to the ultimate productiveness of our mines:? I nm told 1* in usual to make estimates of tho returns that mines will yield, and especially that tlieso are neces sary at. inducements for the Investment of capital. I am also told that disappointment begins to tread very closely on the heels of promise in many of these enter prises, at the present time. Is it strange that It should be so? Have men any more right to expect success in mining than they hate in any other important business, without employing the proper means, guided by the re quisite knowledge and experience? Is this the fault of the rich mineral deposits in which our country is known to abound? Or can any deny that in every country where mining is legitimately followed, it is of more en during profit than any other pursuit? If a merchant weri t j hll his store with worthless and unstlo.ihle ar ticles, bought without knowledge and without reference to value, would It he strange that he should do a losing business? and would his lailere lie any reason why a pru dent man should not buy erd Fell merchandise? In a mining ci untry, like Mexico, tor instance, where Un lit', lo knowledge I have on this subject has been acquired during the past three years, and wluue the tlrst feverish excitement always attending any new leading pursuit has long since subsided and passed away, the fir-t ex pen diture in proving tho character of a vein isalwiys (leiinod a lottery, with more or It sa chances of success ? and with them it is the only lottery. Nor do they hesi tate, when the character of the vein is known, to expend any required amount, however large, to put it in suc ciHSiul operation, and deem the time short if accom I lidied in throe y eais. They are then paid for waiting, and lmvo a property that may be transmittel from gem ration to generation. Netrly all the brilliant for tunes and great lauded estates ot the republic are In the hands of descendants of mining families. Tho English, who ate bully miners, expended two millions of dollars in restoring and putting in order the llolono's Mine, be ! fere they get any returns. There have b, en siugleye.trs I sit ee tluit time, in which the bullion produced was equal to the money first expended. In restoring, clearing out, i and repairing the outworks of the great J,u Lux Mine, af i ti r the revolution, #800,000 were expended before any | returns. This mine, during the last six years, has pre i duccd many millions net profits. ThoK"t\l dol Monte | tiives to its proprietors at present nearly tvo hundred I thousand dollars per month. It Is indeed a sorry mine | here, or elsewhere, properly opened and wmk.d, if it do : not noy a good dividend (,n a capital of a million. Why, then. Is it that there aro so rnanv disappoint mints in tlie I nited States? Tho answer, unfortunately, is lo be found in tho undeniable 'fact that In too me.uy Instances the proper means have not been employed. A location i; made or a tract is purchased, having an out i crop ping vein upon it; an excavation i" ma io on tho vein, for anything und. r a bundr< d fee Pis. after all, but I an exes\stion; a few fine specimens of ore are p rocitre l, and torthwitb a company ,s formed.
