We yesterday received a letter from g gentleman in Cornucopia fri>m which we condense tne following items of in terest: The country is green for miles | ground with luxuriant gras-os, and all sirtsul game and tisli are plentiful and tseily captured. The four stage iinas are well pat ronized with pertple. coming and go ing. The first death occurred in Cornu topis August 4th. The name of de ,'tgsed was Mrs. Ann Lee, who expired gtisrs protracted illness. She leaves a family in California. The" burning of tiie mill set the place ! lack considerably, i ut our corn-spoil- 1 ilent thinks it will be a flourishing j camp in tiie near future. About one' hundred men are engaged on the ic.*w twenty stamp mill of the Leopard foiupsny.

A wedding ceremony was performed ; at the Parker House last night out of which a very readable romance might bo spun. Tiie parlies to tiie nuptials were James Oliver, of Silverado, and Mina Spargo, of England. The lair bride is direct from the land of lier nativity, having arrived in Eureka last Friday morning. It is twelve years and over since they were betrothed, Mr. Oliver at that time leaving Eng land forth* Pacific Coast, hero to woo Hie tickle goddess fortune. During the years that have elapsed lie lias ex perienced many reverses, but through ill of the vicissitudes that besot linn be never once allowed tiie image ot be one of ail others he had pledged to live and cherish to fade from Ills memory, she was erptally constant, “aamply illustrated by the long and periloua trip winch site undertook none with the view of joining the tnan nf her choice. Tiie meeting must have been a happy one, but as we ■ere not there to wiiness.it wecari undertake to de-cribe it. Tiie wedding, as already stated, took place !n l|te parlors of the Parker llou-e night, Kev. McClain, of the Pres byterian CliurcU, officiating, in tiie Pte-ence or Mr. and Mrs. John L.

Yesterday, by the cheerfully accord ed permission of Mr. Shaw, tlie Super intendent, we descended into tlie Eu reka Consolidated mine for tlie pur pose of viewing the scene ot tlie late disaster, to enable us to give our read ers a truthful report ot its present con dition, tlie extent of the cave and tlie probable amount of damages sus tained by the company from hindrance or delay iii tlie extraction of ore. The result of our examination fully con firms the trutli of the article published in the Sentinel of last Thursday, which was written from information derived from what we considered au thentic sources. That tlie extent ot the cave and its damaging effects upon the mine have been grossly exagger ated was apparent to us so soon as we bad reached tlie scene of the disaster on the seventh level, and a further ex amination of other portions of tho works convinced us beyond tlie siiadow of a doubt of the absurdity of the re port that there was tlie least danger of tlie suspension ol tlie smelting works on account of tho closing up of tlie avenues to Lite main body of ore, und tlie impossibility of extracting a Vuf ficient quantity to keep the furnaces running. rxv u»o cum o mailt ui ill> runs north 77° west 187 feet to the lirst crosscut, whore llie main body of ore was first struck in this level; from thence it runs through ore all the way to the second crosscut, which is 284 feet from the station, From tiie second crosscut the drift extends some 200 feet further in the direction of the Hell shaft on the east side of the hill, with which it is intended to connect. Tiie first crosscut runs north 20° east25 feet, and crosscut No. 2 runs in the same direc tion 105 feet, both running through a solid and continuous body oi ore all ilie way. A win/.e had been sunk near the second crosscut liO leet toward tiie eighth level through solid ore. Tiie drift to this winze is now closed by the cave, hut a drift is being run from east crosscut No. 1, which is now within 20 feet of the opening, ami a connection will be made io four or live days at the furthest, w hen an accessible body of I ore will be struck more Until sutlicient | to keep twice the number of the com pany's furnaces running for mouths to | come. Tiie drill in the eighth level is : also within 50 leet of the winze; tile i ronmclion will bo made within a! couple of weeks, when the facilities for ! extracting ore will be doubled and the remotest possibility of the supply run ning short at the furnaces averted. In the seventh level drifts have been run j in the ore body a distance of 180 feet, | east anil west, and over 100 feet north 1 and south; it is known to extend con tinuously from tiie sixth level to the 1 bottom of the winze, 00 feet below the ' seventh, with no indication of its ; “petering” at that depth. With such nn immense body of ore, and the facil ities tor its extraction such as we have described, the idea of a short supply is too absurd for a moment’s serious con sulernUon. There is also in the sixth level a body of ore which <hii he tapped by running a cut from the main drill a distance of twenty feet. Over a third of tile ore I now being worked at the furnaces is supplied from the debris which is being removed in the search for the buried men, and from a solid face in a cham ber between the sixth and seventh levels, near the place where the buried men were working when the accident occurred. The balance is supplied from tiie Champion ami Winsail mines which also belong to the company. The extent of tlie cave cannot at present be estimated with any degree of accuracy from the fact that there arc no openings through to thefurlherend of the drifts, in a few days however, when connection is made witli tiie winze, an nis-ning will lie effected, when we will be enabled to give the full particulars. From the nature of the ground, however it is scarcely pos sible that llie cave extends as tar as the winze, as the ground around it was solid and most likely remained in its primitive eorditiou. If this is the case, the actual damage to the mine is not material, and the only loss sustained by the company will be the extra ex |iense incurred by the additional labor in working the shattered ground; and in nn ease ean the accident interfere with tiie continued extraction ol ore or otherwise effect tiie working of the mine to an extent sullieieiil to lie fell by tiie shareholders or to furnish cause for a reduction in the price of the stock to the amount of tiie smallesi fraction of a dollar. The accident was doubtless caused by the falling in of llie top of the im mense natural caveat tlie fifth level. Fxposure to the atmosphere evidently slackened llie limestone roof, causing an immense body to fall w ith a force siilUcient to crash through the drifted ground between the bottom of the cave and tiie seventh level. Human lore sighteould riot have averted the acci dent and no blame can lie attached to anv person ill authority at the works. We have neither the time nor space in this issue to give a further aconunt of our observations in what we firm ly believe to be the greatest mine ever (iiarsiveted in the State. We have some notes, however, which we intend to utilize within a few days. Our thanks are due to Mr. Shaw for Ids courtesy in rendering us every facility for making a thorough examination of the mine—a courtesy which tie ex presses Ids willingness to extend to any person desirous of viewing the great Ruby Hill bonanza. Gone to Carson.—District Attorney Geo. W. Morrill left on the stage last evening for Carson, where ho goes to act In conjunction villi Mr. Wren ou behalf of this county in the hearing be fore the Supreme Court, next Wodncn day, of the mandamus case to compel the Recorder of Elko county to tran scribe the records | ertaitdng to prop erty in the territory ceded by the Leg islature last Winter to this county, the decision of which will virtually set at rest tlie question of the disputed terri tory. During Mr. Merrill's absence D. E. Hally will render himself a terror to evil doers and attend generally to all matters concerning the interests ol t he battle-born State pertaining to tlie du ties of tlie office of District Attorney. Unclaimed Messages. — Messages remain in the office of the Western Unlou Telegraph, in this plaoe, for A. Robinson and Peter Jewel. PIPES FOB THE NEW WATER works. V\ o have frequently alluded to tho proposed addition by Major McCoy to the water works. The new supply of water is being brought from New \ ork canyon to tho top of the mount ain west of the residence of Dr. Schnei der, a distance of about two miles. At that point a redwood tank, capable of holding 50,000 gallons, is to be con structed. From the tank to Main street the distance is somew here In tho neighborhood of 1,200 feet. From the spring to the tank the pipe will be two inch galvanized iron, and from the tank to Main street six-inch black iron. The latter will be capable of sustain ing a pressure of GOO feet. A pressure of about 200 feet, however, is all that w ill lie required of it. This will givo streams sufficient foreo for any contingency that may arise. The con nection of tlie new water works with (lie old is to ho made at the junction of Main and Bateman streets, near the Court-house. As we have noted from timeto time, aconsidcruble share ot tho ditching is already com pleted. The pipe is also in course of construction. Major McCoy lias oom memJably given the contract to a home firm, Maupin & Cromer, who areas well prepared to execute the work as any house on the coast. They have every appliance for the manufacture of pipe, great or small, in auy desired quantity. The job they have under taken tor Major McCoy is by no means a small one. Tho total length of the ditch is, as we have show n, over two miles, some of the pipe being of the largest dimensions, fine car load of the iron has been leceived and workmen are now engaged in turning the pipes. Other consignments of iron will arrive to-day and the whole work, under the especial supervision of Captain Cro mer. who is a thorough mechanic, will be pushed with the utmost vigor. It is thought tlie water from the new works will be introduced on Main street inside of ninety days. The Concert Last Evknino.—We were unable lo attend the concert given hy Miss Lizzie Murphy, at Bigelow’s Hall, last evening, but are assured by a number who were there that the affair was a decided success both in point ot' attendance and the character of ltie performance, which went oil' to (lie entire satisfaction of the audience. We heard many commendatory re marks concerning the efforts of Miss Murphy, who is represented as an ex quisite -inger and accomplished inusi cian. Tile volunteers also acquitted themselves well. There appears to lie a very general leeling of satisfaction over the success of the entertainment, both on the beneficiary's account and because of a reported parvenu attempt to throw cold water over the affair— an attempt which appears to have been eminently unsuccessful. Another Body Recovered.—'The body of Henry Beckstead, one of the victims of the late disaster in the Con solidated mine, was discovered yester day morning about 1 o’clock. The re mains were tout'd in the chamber be tween the sixtli and seventh levels, w here lie was working at the time of the accident. The body was fright fully crushed and mangled and con siderably decomposed. The funeral took place from the undertaking es tablishment of W. I’. Haskell yester day afternoon, and was attended by a large numlier of persons from Ruby Hill and Eureka. l>eceased was a native of Matilda, Canada West, and was about 24 years of age. At Last.—Dan. Duncan committed an assault and battery last 4th of July, for which lie was arrested and his trial set for the 17th. He failed to appear at the appointed time and was not seen in town until day before yesterday, when lie was overhauled by officer Gorman, who took him in custody and introduced him in the Justice Court yesterday. He plead guilty to the charge and whs lined fJ7, or 18 days in the County Jail. He chosu the lat ter. An Old-Timer.—Mr. Goben, an old timer in Ibis section, dating as far back ns 1888, bus just returned from Utah, where lie lias been engaged at mining during the last three or four years. He says the mining interests ol Zion are not as flourishing this season as for merly. Mr. Goben stands in at once in search of a bonanza ou Prospect mountain. Did’nt Open.—The paint not being dry, the Palace Saloon was not opened last night as was announced it would. Everything will be in shape by this evening, when the grand o|>eniiig chorus will be given by those acoin plished end men, Ned MeSorley and Frank Cleavelaud. Encampment Membkrr I. O. O. F. All encampment members and those ol the subordinate lodges in Eureka desirous of establishing an encamp ment in ibis place are invited to be at the ball of Mountain Lodge, No. 27, 1.0.0. F., on Tuesday evening, Au gust lUth, 1875. By order ot Patriarchs. Returned.—Frank Cleavelaud re turned yesterday from his visit to Grass Valley. He says politics are red-hot all over California, and ap parently growing more so as the time for holding the election approaches. District Court.—The Court met yesterday pursuant to adjournment tint transacted no business. It stands adjourned until next Saturday, when it will meet at the usual hour. Collection.—'To-day there will be a collection taken up at mass at the Catholic Church to liquidate the debt. Rkmovai..—Having purchased Dr. Luken’s City Drug Store, I would ropoctfully an nounce that 1 have on hand a largo stock of put ill inodlcines, chemicals, stationery, lumps, chimneys, etc.; oil of which I will soli at roasuiiablo prices.
