Let us go to work and wake the victory we ore sure to win an over whelming one. 1ET1XB HOI EXCEUIOft. Meadow Lake, Aug. 10th, 1866. Editor Csrsos Apteai.: Tn company with Robert M. Howland, Esq., your correspondent made, on yesterday, visit to some of the mines and mills of this District, an account of which may not be uninteresting to your readers. Learning that AVinton's mill was run ning successfully upon the rock of the rinenix company, we first went thither. The arrival and departure of mule trains packing ore from several claims on the Old Man Mountain, the shouting of the packers and the sound of the stamps gave activity and a business like appear ance to the place. As great interest is manifested in the result of the crushing of this mill, large numbers of persons are constantly arriving and departing, and upon close examination of the pro cess adopted, givi expressions of satis faction of the treatment of the orrs. After the reduction of the rock in the battery, the pulp passes over some forty feet of galvanized copper plate. and riffles, thence into pans, where by abrasion, the rusty gold is brightened and readily amalgamated, thence over some twenty feet additional copper plate and riffles, to a line of blanketed sluices some sixty feet in length. Upon these blankets the sulpurets are concentrated, from whence they are taken to a furnace constructed npon a combination of the Swansea and Freiberg plans, and roast ed. The tailings are conducted into a large reservoir to be examined frum time to time to determine their value. As says of the tailings of the Mohawk rock just worked, show that they contain but 53 per ton. From nine tons of ore wott ed here from this mine a bar of bullion valued at eight hundred and thirty dol lars was obtained, or about thirty dol lars to the ton ; this amonnt whs ob tained freai the battery', from tee cop per plates and pans, and will be increas ed from the sulpdurets now being roast ed at the mill. The bar is now on ex hibition at the assay cilice of Lubhert & Co. This mine was located in July of last year by two opposing companies, but a compromise was ffected and their interests consolidated. It is located in old Man Mountain, and can be seen lin ing its rugged sides several miles dis tant until it disappears into l'Lit-nix Lake. Under the etluitut management of F. Chapptllet, Esq., it is being rap idly developed by the sinlinir of a shaft at i:s greatest altitude, and by tunnels NtE Coisty. A mo'iou was raade before the State Central Committee yes-fid.-iy to increase the number of delc- Crte from Nye county tu the State j running into its base and at a point tTnion Convention from two to four. ' ei;u:-distant from its base to it summit. The Committer having been instructed I The lode is abont Hve feet in width and t-y the last State Convention, to apfn.r- i pive promise of great value. The Pbn- tion the deleirHtes tn the Convention of IdtJtf. on (tie basis tt the vote carl for the lnin candidates in l?'l, were oom p!. ti overrule the motion, in spire of the gratify iiijj evidence furnished by tie s::teni:it in td? on g.'od authority that thrrr are already thr-r hundr-d and S:tv vnte- registered in Xve county. If such is really the case, our friends in -"Yye will hardiy experience any ditli itity ia secarit.g the ad:ni-siou of two ate delegates upon proper sboviug to tbe Couteiiliun.

Mr. Webster s;iid that the iaecd le w i- irtie, t,nly tSe ticcurrence took Pace at ta- h'use itf a friend. nix is about one thousand feet westward. is a rna-.-ive lode of from twelve to six teen ft et at the point from which tin ore is now taken, is equally well defined with the Mohaak. AVithin the vicinity if these mines lie other? Iers developed, that give promise of value. After com-pl-titi the run of Plxrnix rock the mill will crush fifty tons for the Lincoln, and the same quantity lor several other com panies. An abundance of wood ami water snrn.-unding this mill furnish reat facilities for the reduction of the ores of the district. At a distance ot one mile westward we reached the Ex celsior mine, one of the first discovered ic the district, and perhaps one of the most valuable. It is s mammoth lode, heinii some twenty feet in width, about six feet containing rock of considerable richness. It is believed that with the mountain in which this ledge is located) tunnel could be rua at small expense to strike the ledge at a depth of five hundred feet. Within a distance of two hundred and fifty feet from the Magda line, the 5ew Jersey and Tornado claims are located. These claims were discov ered and located by Rowland and Dean sometime, I believe, during last month, t'pon breaking off some of the rock near the surface 1 found several particles of gold, that were easily discernible to the naked eye, and presume a little more labor will prove them to be valuable I understand it is the intention of the locators to sink upon them soon. These claims and nlso the Magdaiine run into and through the Magdaiine Valley, a lovely spot, containing about one hun- Ired acres of grass aud timber land, and through which a fine stream of water is running, and is surrounded by timber suHicieut to supply the mines tor years to come. Here are to be found the Wild Columhiue. Tiger Lilly, EiueHeil, Lupin Marigold, Moss Pink and A'iolet, aud among them the Humming bird en deared to us by past recollections. A little above this A'alley we found the camp of Howland and Iean. Here, un der umbrageous balsum firs and furest pines we found our old friend Dan stretched out enjoying a regalia with a familiar Appeal before him, walled in by a barrel of pork, a lot of freshly cur ed hams, flour, potatoes, et?.; he pre sented a picture of ease and content ment. Surrounded by a garden of flow ers, lofty pines, with the sonps of birds to delight the ear, and breathing the pure mountain air, what cares be wheth er schnol keeps or not.'' From a pole in front of their camp floated the !fars and stripes, indicating that now as ever our friends llovlandand Dean are some npon the "main" question, and that they carry their loteforthe old fitg wherever they go. AVhat a flood of joy ous emotions rush before us as we gaze npon thrs glorious emblem floatiaj proudly upon the high nii uutain tops. It was a glorious emblem in youth, and in later years has become endeared to its by the sacritice of heroic blood. Lunch being soon announced we sat down and partook of a noal with a rel ish that a Kirig might envy; after which whi!e er joying a fragrant Havana our thoughts turned toward our friends in Carson, whose hospitalities in days past are remembered wi'h sincere pleasure. The progress of the Mint, the increase of the town, the approaching marriage of the Appeal's worthy chief, the en suing political contest in Neva la and th issues of the day wert discussed un til the shades t'f evening caused us to separate. On the following mortiirg. acc'.ti! anted by ot:r old friend Geo. AV. Wilson, E-q . Messrs. Howland and lean, we started out to visit the Enter prise mill and mine. Passed through the bea'.'iful Fnrdyre A'alley, ia ahich sever tl hundred head of cattle and horses are grazing, and through the town of Meudoza, a place containing about one hundred inhabitants. The houses are principally occupied for saloon, store and hotel purposes. On the hill sides the ramps of the miners are built, tor the reason prubably that lots have been held at high rates, and in some instan ces in the early settlement of the town could only be had under lease. I'pon entering the town the cry of fire was raised, und a sudden rushing to the op posite side of Main street warned us ot gamation in use here. The rock is first broken by Blake's crusher, similar to the one in nse at the Gould k Curry mill in Nevada, passes thence into a hopper, and is from thence conducted by feed ing pipes, three in number, to the '-New Enterprise Pulverizer," built by G. W king. This crusher is composed t three cast iron wheels, five and and a half feet in diameter, weighing each three thousand ponnds, these revolve aronnd a perpendicular shaft and upon a circu lar plate twenty-five feel in circumfer ence; upon each revolution of the wheel the pulverized quartz is scraped off by machinery, and after being bolted, the coarse particles are subjected to further reduction, while the sufficiently reduced quartz is passed to Wheeler and Ran dall's improved amalgamators; after which the pulp is drawn off into setilers. and the ama'cani taken therefrom. AVe went thence to the Enterprise mine and found work being prosecuted vigorously Some very fine looking quartz is hein? extracted, and is said to be of good quality. To-morrow l)r.

One of our num ber surmised it had been put off in hon or of our arrival. As little life and ac tivity seems to prevail here, it is prob ably deniable that the citizens should he occasionally waked up. Continuing on, we reached the town of Hockland, about a mile and a haif distant frum Nendc za. This town site was located by V. T. Warren, Esq., who 1 believe is one of the principal owners; the same gentlemen is also proprietor of the War- ten House, a commodious and well kept hotel. This town contains about fifteen or taenty bouses, is on the route from Cisco ti Meadow Lake, and surrounds the now somewhat famoas Enterprise mill. As great interest it now beiay manifested in the result of this mill, I will give yon briefly, n description of From tn nrccinitoos nature of the j tbe process of the redaction nnd naal- construction, the whole width will pay fur working, certainlj with the very rich rock obtained in some portions ot the miuc, the averege ought to be very satisfactory. Work is progressing rap idly u.on the mill and it is expected to be put in working order by tbe 15th of nri'neit month. From the mill we went to he Magdaiine company's claim on the Situtli extension of the ExceUior. This location was made bv It. M. Howland and Daniel Iean, August loth of last year. The ledge can be traced almost the entire length of the location one thousand feet, and is at this point about five feet ia width, increasing as a great er depth is attained. Shows consider able free gold to the eye and contains the black and red oxides, found ia the Excelsior to be exceedingly rich. At a greater depth snlphurets of copper are found in abundance, nn indication of the permanency and value of tha lode. HEKIFF'4 S1AI.K.
